Saturn in Houses: all the characteristics of Saturn in astrology, when placed in any of the twelve astrological houses.

Natal Saturn in the 12th House

Natal Saturn in the 12th house

Having Saturn in the 12th house is probably one of the most difficult placements a native can have. Especially if the planet is adversely aspected, its effect in the house of fears and restriction can lead to isolation and depression. As the 12th house rules fears, the presence of any malefic planet there can induce quite a lot of them. Saturn has a rather cold and restrictive energy, which can lead the native to self-limitation. He is frequently afraid to dream, which in turn leads to despair and melancholy. Many times, it is Saturn’s pessimism that actually keeps the individual away from achieving his inner wishes. The 12th house is responsible for the last 2 hours before birth, and Saturn’s presence may indicate a lot of pressure in the mother’s…

An individual with his natal Saturn in the 11th house will be very careful and serious about his friendships. The barrier the planet imposes may sometimes alienate him from groups and companies; nevertheless, it can also act as a great filter for making the best choices concerning his friendships. As many other astrological houses that are above the horizon, the 11th house is a rather good placement for one’s natal Saturn. The house is ruled by Aquarius and planet Uranus, yet we should not forget that before Uranus’ discovery, the ringed planet Saturn was considered as the sign ruler. Indeed, Saturn feels quite comfortable in Aquarius, and even functions in a rather open and liberated way, inheriting many of the sign’s traits. In case that Saturn is well-aspected, the planet…

Natal Saturn in the 10th House

Natal Saturn in the 10th house is in domicile, as the house’s natural ruler is Capricorn. Having Saturn high in the heavens is quite a better placement than below the horizon, and especially if it is well-aspected or placed in the signs of Capricorn, Libra or Aquarius, it can even act as a benefic while in the 10th house. Nevertheless, one should not expect to effortlessly activate the positive traits of the ringed planet. Saturn is all about seriousness, and when in the 10th house, it requires a very devoted approach to all career matters. His rewards, even if quite a lot of time and efforts are needed for them to appear, are long-lasting and can accompany the native until his last life moments. It has to be noted, that…

Natal Saturn in the 9th House

Even though Saturn is a rather malefic planet, it is quite a better placement if it resides high in the heavens during the native’s birth. Natal Saturn in the 9th house will definitely require a lot of effort from the native in order to function well but can be highly rewarding. The individual with such a placement might be born to a very traditional family and usually has grandparents who have a very narrow perception of religion and education. They might be very pushy about these matters during his young years, forcing him to accept their own views. This can develop an inner rejection of religion and education in the individual and heavy disappointment about how he is being taught that life functions. On the other hand, Saturn here will…

Natal Saturn in the 8th House

A reader might expect that natal Saturn in the 8th house would bring a lot of difficulties in the matters that the house rules, yet this is definitely not the case. The 8th house can even be a very good placement for the otherwise malefic planet, provided of course that it is well-aspected. Yes, Saturn is indeed a planet that can bring difficulties depending on where it is placed, but it definitely functions in a better way when it is high in the heavens than when it is near or beneath the horizon. The most important effect that this placement creates is making the native rather serious about the matters of the 8th house. The 8th house rules sex, but not the one of the casual type. Here lays the…

Many would expect that having natal Saturn in the 7th house is the worst position for marriage. Well, it is not! The truth is that the presence of the ringed planet can create complications in this matter, but if the native handles it well, it can lead to a marital life of the utmost stability. The real question is whether the chart owner really wants this type of stability, or would they prefer Saturn to block the gates of marriage. Of course, a lot is depending on aspects of other planets that apply on the native’s natal Saturn. First of all, we should mention that for such a natal placement of Saturn, the sign in which he resides is a key factor. If Saturn is located in Capricorn, Aquarius or…
