Home / Astrology Articles / Planets in Astrology


The Saturn is a mighty planet, and as generally termed malefic but actually is not so. It raises the native to dizzy heights. Generally public at large is allergic to the name of Saturn. It is one of the best friend of mankind. If Saturn would not have been involved in the scheme of things, life would not have acquired that sophiscated touch which is now evident. Saturn does the work of culturing, and makes the man perfect due to his hard experiences through odds, obstacles and turmoils. Represents emotions at all levels.

Saturn is not a malefic, as it is generally thought to be, it is friend of those who want perfection in life. It represents love of perfection and self discipline at the cost of luxurious life. Poverty is self invited because it will help to overcome pride, arrogance and basic instincts of life. Saturn is a hard task master. When one does not follow the directions of Saturn, it whips sternly and so is called malefic by the people, but why not ? People should take it in a good spirit.

Saturn is a Friend, Not Foe.

Saturn when dignified or well aspected and placed well indicates prudence, contemplation, cautious, responsible, precise, persistent, perserving, industrious, provident, patient, economical, reserved, serious, resolute, considerate, mathematical, temperate, chaste and executive.

But when Saturn is debilitated, misplaced, combust or afflicted indicates skeptical, melancholy, deceitful, incompetent, exacting, avaricious, perverse, indifferent, laborious, impotent, repining, acquisitive, suspicious, fearful, slow, callous, lewd, pessimist and unreliable.
