Saturn in Astrology and its Significance


Saturnin Astrology is the ruler of Capricorn and the 10th house cusp and it signifies our physical need for self-protection and self-preservation. The basic need for food and shelter. Achieving these is led by the need for a physical sense of security that is within us all. That is the energy of Saturn, to maintain, to build, to preserve and to protect. That also needs to be maintained and looked after, and at this basic level, Saturn within us is the monitor for all our survival and physical needs.

Saturn is associated with discipline, external restrictions, rigid rules and structure. It brings order where there is chaos. Apart from that Saturn symbolises caution and protection wherever it is placed in the natal chart. Its placement can signify limitation, delays, frustration, duty, responsibility, inability and fear.

Saturn’s placement in the Natal Chart tells us what we most need to learn. The house shows the area of life and the sign can indicate the inherent challenge. The sign, therefore, can show fears and anxieties, from the past, that need to be worked through and released.
