Where Saturn is located in your natal chart indicates where you will experience restriction and discipline…it is unlike the other outer planets that extend past Mars. Jupiter is the planet of luck and exuberance when located in a prosperous position it can bring you sudden wind falls of money. Uranus the planet of change offers flashes of genius, surprises and yes occasionally accidents and then we have Pluto that can plummet the depths of an experience or psyche revolutionize everything it touches in search of the truth. Pluto may destroy whatever it touches. leveling it and then ultimately rebuilding, I wish I could say the same for Saturn. But perhaps I’m looking at the glass half empty rather than half full. But I wonder how we can benefit from the father of the zodiac. After all I lack discipline as an individual, usually think in terms of “fight the man” I do not take too kindly to being told what to do and my motto should be: Rules are made to be broken. Aquarius Rising, Uranus as its ruler. My Saturn is located in my 6th house of work which makes me very industrious with very little reward and Saturn is also conjoining my descendent. And I wonder why I’m 34 and have never been married and am attracted toward colder individuals that are practical when I’m anything but. Ha! I just realized this last night and broke out into a hyperventilating fit. Ya see I always look at other peoples charts but rarely my own. Saturn in the 7th is said to be a killer. Needless to say I joined a support group on facebook immediately. I can’t help but wonder where is Saturn nicely placed? It isn’t exactly a warm fuzzy planet. If you have it in your 9th house you are traditional in thought and rather small minded, if you have it in your 2nd house you may have a hard time earning money…having it in 7th brings issues in personal relationships. I hope this post can help you find the glass half full as we all learn to live with the restriction, structures and limitations of Saturn.
Saturn in the 1st house the house of self
I call this the 10 and 2 position, ya know when you learn to drive and the instructor tells you to put your hands on the steering wheel in the 10 and 2 position? I know a man with Saturn in the 1st and he always drives the speed limit, never over, hands at 10 and 2 with his seat belt always fastened securely. That is Saturn in the 1st house, no loud blaring music, no vehicular distractions…just driving. Saturn in the 1st house gives the individual a conservative nature. They do not make waves, they follow rules, and where as Saturn in the 7th indicates concern over 1 to 1 relations Saturn in 1st indicates concern with you as an individual. You in relation to yourself. Saturn in the 1st makes your expression afflicted; perhaps you suffer from low self esteem or feel self-conscious. You may even use this feeling of inferiority to catapult yourself to make some great achievements in your professional life, especially if the Sun is squaring Saturn. (Millionaire status)
Nourishment of your 1st house Saturn can be done by venturing out of your shell a bit. Realize that this is the same part of your personality that also makes you reliable, successful and trustworthy. Give yourself free passes, if you find you are being hard on yourself; acknowledge and release it. Remind yourself of all your good qualities. Avoid subscribing to perfectionism.
Saturn in the 2nd house of your stuff
Whereas the 1st house Saturn restricts yourself expression the 2nd house Saturn is all about your stuff, primarily feeling like you do not have enough stuff. 1st house is feeling you are not enough and 2nd house Saturn is not having enough. This position of Saturn may indicate you have hard time earning money or the money you do earn you hold onto it very tight with a fear of going completely broke. You avoid being extravagant in spending and you may even avoid treating yourself to small luxuries on an occasional basis. You won’t get that massage, go to that ball game because your busy totaling up your mutual funds, international stocks and retirement plan.
Nourishment of 2nd House Saturn: Treat yourself!! You work hard you deserve it, if you have a hard time spending money make a vacation fund, put a certain amount of money away each week for something you enjoy whether it is going to the movies or heliskiing. Force yourself to enjoy life. You can’t take that money with you into the next life.
Saturn in the 3rd house of your lower mind, the way you learn and communicate indicates there may be a tendency towards depressive thoughts and an overall gloomy outlook. Specific in speech, you search for words and select them carefully. Saturn is not at its worst when placed in the 3rd house after all your concentration abilities are top notch, you may be great at research and writing.
Nourishment of the 3rd house Saturn: Keep those dreadful thoughts in check! Take mental breaks; check out occasionally if at all possible. Read material that is light from time to time. You don’t always have to be solving the mysteries of the world.
Saturn in the 4th house of roots and family, indicates coldness growing up perhaps one of your parents was MIA or somehow emotionally unavailable. Saturn represents restriction and in this case it usually manifests in childhood. Due to this fact you may grow up and wish to incorporate a very “stable” home environment. But ah-ha this is Saturn so you may be a very stern authoritive figure with in your house, present but stern. Also the 4th house rules real-estate, this placement does well with property as Saturn on the flip side does offer stability.
Nourishment of a 4th house Saturn: accept no ones childhood is perfect. Far from it. Sometimes you have to provide yourself with what your parents have not. Find a happy medium when married and rearing children, share some of the burdens and release some of your pain.
Saturn in the 5th house of speculation, love affairs and creativity can restrict your ability to have fun. Let go! Enjoy! Be conscious that the planet of restriction is in your house of “fun times”. You may have an aversion to casual sexual liaisons and prefer only serious relationships. Children are a cause for concern perhaps you are unable to relate to them, you have a hard time conceiving or you find yourself always having to be a disciplinarian role in relation to them. Saturn placed here is not a good placement for slot machines and betting on sports. Your money would be better placed in safer venues.
Nourishment of a 5th house Saturn: Make time for fun, enjoy other peoples company even when there isn’t any long term potential. Go dancing, have a night out with the girls/guys. MAKE FUN your priority.
Saturn in the 6th house of day to day work and health routines means you are a very hard worker. Nose to the grind, you get tasks done and are a loyal employee however you have a tendency to be over looked unless otherwise indicated (Jupiter in 7th or 10th). You may get stuck into routines, being that this is also the house of health habits as long as your health habits are good ones, this can be a plus.
Nourishment for a 6th house Saturn: There is a saying: Expectation is the root of all disappointment. With a 6th house Saturn do not expect to rise immediately to rise to the top your profession just like a 7th house Saturn should not expect to have a successful marriage before the age of 29;) However with steadfast determination, keeping a keen eye on your professional goals and branching out a bit socially, you should find yourself where you need to be in no time.
Saturn in the 7th house the house of 1 one 1 partnerships. There are support groups for this, many people will tell you not to marry before 29 years of age, if you do marry early it will most likely be to a Capricorn, expect delays in marriage. My experience is being draw to cautious, responsible types that embody the characteristics of an earth sign. Practical, fiscally resourceful etc. There may be few relationships because those you do enter into are done so with serious intent. Some people fear they will never be married I don’t believe this is always the case. I think you have to consider the entire chart, I complain continuously that I want to be married but my moon is in Aries (freedom and adventure) Venus is unaspected in Gemini scattered (scattered and lighthearted) and of course Saturn conjunct 7th house cusp… this usually indicates an age difference with a parential type
Nourishment of a 7th house Saturn: acknowledge commitment is an issue, I have this placement and shun at the idea of renewing my cell phone contract. I enjoy relationships when they are fresh and new, on dates I feel as though I’m suffocating. I’m always thinking, “Can I do this for the rest of my life”. Anxiety off the charts. I spent years searching for that “perfect love” as a Saturn in 7th house would. Only to realize at 34 oopsy that doesn’t exist. When you are ready to do the work Saturn in the 7th will give you a lifelong love, a stable love, a practical love. But first you have to have the urge to truly merge.
Saturn in the 8th house of other people’s money, sex, death and regeneration. There is a certain amount of resistance to change, the 8th house is the house of transformation and Saturn is restriction; the more you resist change the more it hurts. Coming to terms with that of which you cannot control. Wanting to dominate sexual partners, wanting to be in total control over finances. The theme is control, holding on so tightly
Nourishing an 8th house Saturn: Acceptance, allow change to happen, surrender in partnerships. Share financial responsibilities; expect delays when applying for mortgage and other loans. Loosen the grip you have over others and over yourself. Allow life to flow
Saturn in the 9th house of higher thinking and higher education. This manifests itself as being closed minded and conservative. Perhaps you stick to the same beliefs you were raised with. Never daring out to discover your own. Never questioning the why? You may not find Saturn here to be intrusive because you may think your way of thinking is the right way. The only way. Strong indication of being conservative politically and religiously.
Nourishing a 9th house Saturn: With this placement I want to scream: Step outside yourself! Open your mind! Perhaps you were raised believing that Jesus was your Christ and savior and you went to Sunday school and you read the bible on Saturday afternoons. Who said this is the right way? How did you reach these opinions? Who states these are indeed accurate? Are these truly your opinion or those that were handed down? I encourage you to hear others out, form your own opinions question the how’s and why of life
Saturn in the 10th house where Saturn is at home. Ahhh must be nice to have a 10th house Saturn. The 10th house rules career, reputation. Other than bearing a superior attitude that rules with an iron fist that may on occasion be very consumed with status…Saturn in the 10th house gives you the ability to be well respected and reach great lengths in your chosen profession. The sky is the limit.
Nourishing the 10th house Saturn: Remember to be nice to those that are in subordinate positions. Although you may feel you have all the answers it is important for those that work for you feel they are heard, so be sure to listen.
Saturn in the 11th house of like minded friends, group affiliations as well as hopes and wishes. Saturn here makes you not entirely comfortable in social situations in particular. You may be amongst a group of your peers who you have known for a lifetime yet lack the confidence in letting loose and being 100% yourself.
Nourishing your 11th house Saturn: Remember people are your friends because they want to be. If large groups isn’t your idea of a grand time, that’s ok but do make time with a small group of intimate friends where you feel free to exchange your beliefs, hopes and wishes!
Saturn in the 12th house of what remains hidden, most likely in your subconscious Sometimes its represents not only what you keep from others but what you hide from yourself. I can relate to this placement because Capricorn is on my 12th house cusp. With an empty house you can absorb the energy of the sign on the cusp. The feeling of being alone, even when you are surrounded by a bunch of close friends, feeling overwhelmed, like you have to take responsibility for everything and everyone. At least once a month I cry: I’m so tired of doing everything by myself.
Nourishment of a 12th house Saturn: Let me preface and say I’m not religious, but God helps those who help themselves. Do not allow others to take advantage, roll up that red carpet that they have been using to walk over you! Next acknowledge that the world is a sad place, but you cannot absorb and take on other people’s pain 24/7. If you want to help volunteer once a week, not more. Also take the time you need to do your tasks. One step at a time as with everything else that is all any of us can do.
