Saturn Signs in Astrology
Saturn in Aries in the horoscope
Saturn in Aries in the horoscope indicates a serious minded pioneer (in whatever field). He doesn’t need to carry a chip on his shoulder, because he has developed self-confidence and can take on difficult circumstances in a challenging mode. At worst, Saturn in the sign of the ego can indicate a self-justified and self-centered individual bent on his own ambition and resentful of any real or imagined opposition to his plans. The key factor depends on how the native perceives himself and also on the nature of his relationship to the father or dominant parent. Success comes from combining enterprise with self-discipline.
Saturn in Taurus in the horoscope
The great spiritual traditions of the East say that suffering is born of desire. Self-liberation comes from non-attachment to desire.
People with Saturn in Taurus in the horoscope typically equate emotional security with material abundance. They can become very attached to their possessions. But the snag is that the more attached they become, the more they fear losing their things, wealth or comfort. The balancing factor lies in the values acquired during native hood. The Saturn in Taurus in the horoscope native needs to learn to be a good steward of this world’s goods. Later in life, he may enter banking, insurance or business management. He will look for a career that insures financial and material security. He is more patient than most, and willing to work hard to gain the object of his desire. He may, however, find it difficult to share with other natives. Remind him of the Golden Rule, “It is far better to give than to receive.” Read him tales that teach the dangers of excessive materialism, such as the story of Midas and that of Scrooge. In THE SOUND OF MUSIC you will find a useful example of a family able to enjoy the good things in life, but who are able to walk away from it and maintain their happiness. Your native may be reluctant to give up his things, even when they have outgrown their usefulness. Teach him to clean out his closet to make room for something new!
Saturn in Gemini in the horoscope
Your native takes communication seriously! This position confers mental discipline and logic. He is a born problem solver! This placement confers ability to organize details systematically and is common in the charts of secretaries, researchers, writers, lecturers, teachers, scientists, engineers and technicians. Your native may enjoy math and science and would likely benefit from extended formal study. His interests are likely to be broad and varied. Especially is Mercury is well aspected, he is likely to be articulate, with a sharp tongue and shrewd mind. With afflictions, basic communication skills may need to be acquired, there may be a negative bent to the mind, the native may experience difficulties with teachers, knowledge may be plentiful but superficial.
Others may interpret Saturn in Gemini in the horoscope’s natural inclination to observe and make objective comments as coldly critical. Show your native how to implement learning in practical ways. Teach him the difference between surface knowledge and applied wisdom. The life of the English statesman and saint, Sir Thomas More, provide an unforgettable example of this principle. An older brother or sister may play an important role in your native ‘s life.
Saturn in Cancer in the horoscope
Natives born with Saturn in Cancer in the horoscope are very sensitive to what goes on at home. Nevertheless, they may find it hard to express their feelings. The Cancer in the horoscope crab carries around his shell to protect his inner vulnerability and easily hurt feelings. Natives with this placement may brood, hide in their room, or somehow conceal their true feelings. They are often defensive (the crab has claws!) The Saturn in Cancer in the horoscope native may be extremely sensitive, but if he chooses not to communicate, he isolates himself emotionally from the rest of the household.

If he feels secure within himself, he can better avoid the pitfalls and in adult life may take a serious interest in caring for his own family and in nurturing others.
