I WILL ALSO UPLOAD HIS CHART IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT.
Natal Saturn is exalted in Libra and in a sextile aspect to natal Venus. Venus also rules Saturn in Libra. This points to a person who takes relationships very seriously. With Saturn from the 10th house, we might say relationships for this person are very serious business. That does not necessarily mean that he views them as negative. The natal sextile points to an easy flow of energy, perhaps an easier inclination to enter and exit relationship.
As this blueprint of our life's potential [the natal chart] unfolds over time [progressed charts] we begin to see the evolution of the planetary expressions. At about age 30 Venus has progressed just past a square to progressed Saturn. The square has passed, but leading up to it, there was likely more tension and perhaps more resistance to entering a relationship unless it appeared to be of the highest, most aesthetic form of great beauty and substance. With the progressed square now separating, this person may have grasped the lesson of Saturn square Venus, so there may be less tension. But is it likely that he will always have very high standards regarding with whom he will enter into relationship.
8th house to 12th house progressed square might denote that once into relationship he completely submits to it, surrenders to it. Hence the caution [Saturn]. But I must inquire before proceeding too much further: I see you indicate his birth time is noon. If so, then my comments about house interpretation have some validity. If the time of birth is not known, then we will not know any of the houses, natal or progressed. Please let me know.
