Saturn - astrology 101


In traditional astrology Saturn rules Capricorn and Aquarius.

⁠⁠⁠⁠I love how Roy Gillett describes Saturn: "Saturn indicates where problems, restrictions, and barriers are likely in our lives and confronts us with the reality of impermanence. But Saturn presides over much more than failure and endings: as the planet of firm foundations, it can show us how to strengthen our endeavors and make them more sustainable". ⁠⁠⁠⁠

Saturn is necessary for the human experience. Keywords for Saturn include discipline, responsibility, structure, pragmatism, and anxiety. I have also seen it represent the father figure in birth charts. ⁠⁠⁠⁠

A well placed Saturn is reserved. An ill placed Saturn is mistrustful and jealous. ⁠⁠⁠⁠Saturn is most at home in Capricorn, Aquarius, and Libra. It doesn't do as well in Cancer, Leo, and Aries. ⁠
