“The rings are, of course, symbolic of the Laws of Karma. The position Saturn holds in space is indicative of the fact that a person cannot incorporate the energies of the furthest planets - Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, into his individualised consciousness without first passing the various tests of personal responsibility so that he proves himself capable of handling the energies of a more evolved state.” - Alan Oken
Saturn in the first house:
The illusion of being trapped in his own skin leads the first house Saturn person into a dark tomb with himself acting as the cruel prison guard. The individual may feel as if his own individuality and unique expression is wrapped in a tangle hold and only amounts in shame. When he smiles, the years drip away, and a fabulous, glow crosses his face like a beaming light. His smile is his most unforgettable feature.
Saturn in the second house:
When the planet of value, Saturn, finds itself in the second house of value, the individual is driven toward finding, sustaining and retaining what he finds personally meaningful and resourceful. While some manifestations of this placement relate to acquiring material possessions, the second house jewels stem further into the soul riches that make his heart sing. This can be diamonds, people, feelings, God, comforts, security and establishing a sense of ownership over things that make him feel.
Saturn in the third house:
Despite his gentle and thoughtful expression, the individual can become so caught up in his self conscious fears he struggles to release his words. Once he finds his mental niche, his brilliant mind is unmatched in expertise. It’s like the third house Saturn person watches his life pass by through the sepia lenses of someone who has lived a million times over.
Saturn in the fourth house:
Fourth house Saturn people are saturated in the search for a meaningful inner experience. A place of comfort, a sanctuary of retreat away from the world is the longstanding lullaby that soothes their psychological complexes and unfulfilled childhood needs. The world melts away on the sail through their rich inner world. Houses breathe to them
Saturn in the fifth house:
More than anything, the fifth house Saturn person wants to be loved. There may be a gaping hole in his chest he feels he can’t fill, as though he is unworthy or somehow defective and unlovable. He may be desperate to feel that soul-saturating, particle shattering love, although he blocks himself and self isolates from these opportunities.
Saturn in the sixth house:
The individual can be a disciple of the highest order, a spirit here on earth to offer out arms in service and healing riches. There can be a high level of nervous tension and digestive upset with Saturn in the sixth. Health tends to be a priority of life, strange or wavering health problems can seem like fate
Saturn in the seventh house:
Without love, the individual may experience harsh feelings of self deprecation and inadequacy, but Saturn won’t stand by while he enters relationships out of loneliness and not love. He will be forced to love the person in the mirror before he is given free reign amongst others.
Saturn in the eighth house:
The 8th house is a torrential journey through dark channels of the psyche and unconscious, the breathing and the expired, the graveyard of ashes and rebirth. The raw and forceful tugs of Saturn force a steady and contrarious experience. Such streams create a battleground of mental and transcendental power. This is a spirit capable of extending between between the material world and the supernal, co consciously.
Saturn in the ninth house:
Dane Rudyhar discusses the idea of Saturn in the ninth being forced to provide concrete and personalized application to the mystical experience. That is making magic, there can be no tricks, illusions, or acceptance in blind faith. Symbolism becomes rich in everyday life and a direct reflection of the illuminated God within. Saturn in the ninth is the disciple of the cosmos, the magician of all spiritual law, the master of the material plane, pouring the cosmic fountain of pure wizardry.
Saturn in the tenth house
There is something magical and crackling about Saturn in the tenth. Like they are a wizard of every time period in history, holding an hourglass filled with sorcerers dust, cradling the orb in their hands that knows how to turn far away dreams into something real and wonderful. This is Saturn’s royal progeny, his golden child, the one he will carry under his wing and thrust into glory.
Saturn in the eleventh house
The eleventh Saturn person may disappear from the social scene for days or even weeks on end. The individual may also prefer to eschew entertaining interpersonal contact until he is ready. There is a deep fondness for privacy. His inner circle is likely small and the people that know him best may know a completely different personality altogether than outsiders
Saturn in the twelfth house
Saturn here screams from the subconscious in search of recognition for the interconnection between all beings, God and the universe; calling for an obliteration of the ego in return for sewing themselves amongst the tapestry of wholeness. Saturn in the 12th are forced to submit to the collective, despite their intrinsic, overwhelming illusion of separation.
