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

Natal Saturn in the 6th House

Natal Saturn in the 6th House

The 6th house is closely connected with everything that includes one’s labor, personal effort, and work; mostly not as a professional direction and career, but rather of offering your services to someone else. People who have Saturn placed in the house can be workaholics, as its presence makes the 6th house issues play an important role in the native’s life. Saturn in the 6th house gives quite demanding work surroundings to the native, without this meaning that they do not like it. Nevertheless, it is time-consuming and a lot of effort is being invested. When Saturn is well-aspected by other bodies, working a lot is a conscious decision, often involving family businesses that pass from father to child, becoming a tradition. Of course, such works also are demanding, as they…

Natal Saturn in the 5th House

Natal Saturn in the 5th House

Being located in the 5th house is a rather difficult position for Saturn. Even when it is well-aspected, its presence in the house of joy will restrain the native from the small amusements of life, giving a rather serious approach to his life. The gloomy and cold nature of Saturn is definitely not the best to have in the house of pleasure. While most people party, a native with such an aspect might be shy to join fun activities or even consider them as something not interesting. He may have a very serious character concerning fun activities, and during his childhood, the elder members of the family were frowning upon joy. They might be considering playing, laughing and passing a good time as a sin; thus the native can grow…

Natal Saturn in the 4th House

Natal Saturn in the 4th House

Having Saturn in the house of one’s home is a rather difficult natal placement. The 4th house is traditionally ruled by Cancer and the Moon, and Saturn’s cold presence is adversely affecting all the emotional areas connected with one’s home, family and childhood. Even when Saturn is well-aspected, it will still bring coldness in the native’s family affairs even when his parents do not treat him in a bad way; they might just be very old, conservative and become a burden because he must take care of them. Usually, Saturn in the 4th house brings an unhappy childhood. As the 4th house rules the native’s mother, she is frequently distant and cold. This placement gives possibilities of an old mother of a rather melancholic character, whose culture and approach towards…

Natal Saturn in the 3rd House

Natal Saturn in the 3rd House

Usually, the presence of Saturn in a house has a restrictive effect on the matters that the house rules. You should always keep in mind though that there is a huge difference between a well aspected Saturn and an adversely aspected one. Also, when natal Saturn is located in the signs of Capricorn, Aquarius, Libra or Scorpio he tends to abolish a lot of his negative traits, and can even become benefic if there is no harsh aspect to the other planets present in the chart. Saturn is a slow moving planet and gives delays to issues of the house where it is located. The person who was born with Saturn in the 3rd house usually starts talking and communicating later than other kids, might have a rather slow and…

Natal Saturn in the 2nd House

Natal Saturn in the 2nd House

Usually, wherever Saturn is located in a natal chart signifies a problematic life area, as the ringed planet is considered a malefic. Does this general rule apply, though, when Saturn is placed in the house of material possessions and wealth? The truth is somewhere in the middle. When Saturn is located in the 2nd house, its behavior is strongly connected to the aspects that it forms with other planets, while also to the sign in which it resides. Even though it is considered a rather restrictive planet, if it is placed in Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn or Aquarius he tends to reveal his positive traits. The same applies when he forms good natal aspects to planets; a supportive Jupiter or Venus might even turn him into a benefic. Nevertheless, the whole…

Natal Saturn in the 1st House

Natal Saturn in the 1st House

Saturn is widely known to be a malefic planet, so what happens when it is located in the house of one’s self? Relax, as things might not be so tragic – Saturn is also a great teacher, who often helps us evolve through difficulties. His nature bonds us and restricts us, but accepting the limitations he applies on us and learning to live with them becomes the liberation from the trouble that he brings. Having Saturn in the 1st house makes the individual a rather serious person; Saturn is by no means the most enthusiastic planet of our Solar System. The native is cautious or even shy, prefers stability in his affairs and everyday reality and likes to focus in structuring his life. They are hard working, and many times…
