Date : 02 Apr, 2020

Role and importance of Saturn in Vedic Astrology arises from his position in the Universe- he is the Universal judge for the whole world. Saturn is the son of Lord Surya and Chaya (shadow). As Surya misbehaved with Chaya, Saturn was never happy with him and always had a strained relationship with him. It is a very dry, ringed and extremely cold planet. Saturn is on each of the zodiacs for two and a half years each. He is a giver of long life and is the Universal judge of this world.

Saturn’s astrological significance is in making you wise and if Jupiter is in conjunction, you could be wiser than you could be, in any other time. Now, let us see how Saturn would be when placed in different Zodiac signs.

  1. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Aries: You would be a decision maker by nature and with Saturn in play; you would have to extend caution and restraint in your judgments. Well that does not sit well with your performance and role. Thus, initially you may have to make some adjustments to understand how you are supposed to pass your judgments.
  2. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Taurus: You might be tied rigidly to your routine and you may have a passion for tactical, careful and cautious business. You might also be found expressing restrictions on your children and your family. You can be patient like none and also would be very practical, entirely slow to the expression of your feelings.
  3. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Gemini: You are sharp; at least that is what would greet people in you. Late bloomers, you are extremely studious and you perform quite well as a public speaker. Your views though would be a careful consideration of the scenario.
  4. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Cancer: Saturn will guide your sense of ethics. So whenever you are deciding on ethics, you would be portraying Saturn’s role. Your judgments and decisions are extremely calculative and you may always exhibit an authority very few around you have, thus you would manage and stabilize scenarios better than others.
  5. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Leo: The Leos unthinking attitude or the dictatorial desires might be tampered by Saturn’s caution thus transforming the Leos into self aware Leos. You may find happiness quite far away from you burdened by worldly tasks in hand. You may depend on others more than on yourself often and always.

  9. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Sagittarius: You would become more intellectual by nature and your love for learning would grow with time. Your small voice would slowly become big in your effort to listen harder with each passing day. Patience is something that comes with Saturn’s position in different zodiacs and this is one position where Saturn would make you patient enough.
  10. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Capricorn: Saturn in Capricorn might make you stingy, and naturally inclines you towards pessimism. You would become extremely ambitious and would outgrow others around you in terms of self discipline and integrity.
  11. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Aquarius: Saturn would make you more determined and you would still want to cling to several ideas that were original in themselves much after some other ideas superseded those ones. You would become valuable as friends and would have a scientific way of thinking. You would be very rational and extremely logical in approach.
  12. Astrological Significance of Saturn in Pisces: You would self-examine yourself and you would inculcate an inhibited approach towards life and living, since you would not be treated fairly by the world too. Undue worries and depression would trouble you constantly. You would be chained to certain ideas and thoughts.

So now you see how Saturn's role and importance in Vedic Astrology is determined by the way he arises to fine tune your inner being into achieving its greater self. You must understand that life is full of trials and tribulations only for us to walk past them. Often they come to you as scenarios and sometimes, as people. Both ways everyone and everything around us is busy making us wise, big and huge but our puny selves are the only one not willing to walk past them. Think about it. Though, I would not say it is entirely true, but I would say this- you are not here to stay forever. If you are not here to stay forever, then what are you here for? Obviously, to do something, in order to do something you have to learn something, so you must decide your role first. The role that you can play and the role, the world wants you to play. Saturn’s astrological significance rises when you and Nature have to come to a point where both agree to each other, Nature to you and you to Nature. In that way, your destiny can guide you to achieve a higher end into the role that sits well for you, with you and with destiny.
