Role and Importance of Saturn in Astrology, Saturn, according to my research, is perhaps the most wealth giving planet, even before Venus and Jupiter. Planet Saturn is not to be feared for any reason. The planets you should be fearful of are Mercury, Venus and Mars, as they rule our everyday life, while Saturn rules our broader outlook on life.
A weak Saturn occurs when it’s in the sign of Aries and Cancer, which are ruled by Mars and Moon (enemy of Saturn) in astrology. A weak Saturn causes problems for the house it sits and the houses it aspects since Saturn aspects the 1st, 3rd, 7th and 10th house from where it sits.
Effects of Saturn on Horoscope
- As Saturn is the Lord of the 8th House, it shall adversely affect any other House, regardless of where it is placed.
- Drinking, gambling, telling lies or indulging into frivolities suppress the positive effects of Saturn.
- If Saturn is placed with Rahu and Ketu, it becomes insignificant.
- Saturn comes under the aspect of Sun, it brings harm to Venus.
- If Saturn is under the effect of Venus, then the native may experience financial loss. But, on the contrary, if Venus is under the aspect of Saturn, it may prove beneficial.
- If Saturn is debilitated at the time of birth and comes in the debilitated Houses in the annual horoscope, then it
- causes great loss in 9th, 18th, 27th and 36th year of life.
- The beneficial effects of Saturn normally begin after the 36th year of birth.
- Saturn gives evil impact when it is alone, or placed with Moon, or it is placed with Rahu in the 12th House of Horoscope.
- If there is a friendly planet in 2nd House and Mars, Venus is established. In such a situation, a person may overcome a prolonged illness and live a healthy life.
