Construction Begins on the Berlin Wall (August 13, 1961)
Beginning at midnight on the 13th August 1961, East German police and army began to close the border with West Berlin.
This was a very big deal then. It would, of course, exist for about 30 years, separating East and West Berlin. Not so much Iron Curtain as stone blocks.
I wasn’t expecting anything so clear cut as that Yod pointing at Saturn in Capricorn (double control). The inconjuncts were from Uranus in Leo (sudden action) and the Ascendant in Gemini (exact timing).
Saturn Inconjunct Uranus
This aspect indicates a serious tension in your life between freedom and restriction. Many people have this conflict, but in your case the tensions may be so severe that you express them physically as muscles tension and possibly nervousness. You feel that somehow you must keep everything in your life under tight control, that if you let go, the whole structure will fall apart.
Saturn Inconjunct Ascendant
With this aspect you probably have a rather serious attitude toward life and other people. It may be quite difficult for you to simply go out and have a good time. You want to be serious and to spend all your time performing significant works. This attitude may have developed because you were discouraged from enjoying yourself when you were younger. You may have been made to feel that only work is important, that play serves no useful purpose.
