Saturn


 

Saturn is the outermost of all the traditional planets. It takes 29.458 years to complete one rotation around the earth. Traditionally Saturn has been the natural ruler of Capricorn by day and Aquarius by night. However, now Uranus is considered the ruler of Aquarius while Saturn rules Capricorn. Saturn signifies melancholy, depression, frigidity and coldness. Saturn also represents convention, repression and fear. Saturn placed well in the chart can show wealth creation, frugality, honesty and ambition. An ill-placed Saturn can denote poverty, struggles and strife. Saturn is considered a teacher, in that, it teaches important life lessons which stay with us long after the period is over. It is a restrictive planet and not very generous, but the gifts which it bestows stay with a native for a long time, unlike the ups and downs associated with Jupiter and Venus
