Meaning of Saturn in the Houses

Saturn is known as the planet of restriction, limitation and the enforcer of boundaries. Because no one wants to be restricted in any way, Saturn is viewed in a very negative light by many astrologers.
While it is true that Saturn in your birth chart or by transit can […] Continue Reading…

    You may sometimes wonder why things aren’t going as well as they should. Or you may wonder why, no matter how hard you work, you can’t achieve your goals. Sometimes, the why is because of not knowing how to work with your natal Saturn. If you have any questions about your natal Saturn placement, let me know below. For security reasons it’s best if you don’t post all of your birth information.

    How to work with a natal saturn-kehu conjunction in 4th house? Is staying in parents house in birth town a good idea or settling in a foreign country?

    • Ruby

      Natal Saturn combined with Ketu in the 4th house places a lot of emphasis on 4th house dynamics. Saturn is there to teach you about 4th house matters (i.e. family, traditions methods of nurturing, etc.) Ketu points to your past and the ingrained patterns learned from your past, and even your past lives. Therefore with both Ketu and Saturn in the 4th house, your chart is sending a clear message abuot what you need to learn in this lifetime. You need to think about whether the choices you make in your life are your own choices or are they made because of the influence of family or traditional expectations.

      Because Rahu is in your 10th house of career and public standing making changes through career, as a separate person separate from family, would be advantageous for you. The sign and position of Rahu indicates your karmic purpose this lifetime. Notice that, because the two Nodes are opposite each other, they are pointing to two completely different paths. Moving away from the home environment to establish yourself in a career would fulfill the promise of Raho.

      I don’t have enough information to determine whether settling in a foreign country would be beneficial for you. For clues look to your 9th house, the sign on the cusp of the ninth house and any planets in the 9th house. Also, look to Jupiter and any aspects that it is making to other planets. Good luck in your quest.

      I think you know the answers to your questions, but just need validation. Good luck in your quest.


    sir, it was indeed a very good article on Saturn. I am thankful for your energy and time in bringing out the best of SATURN. I have Saturn positioned in 8th from Mesha, 12th From Dhanur Lagna and 11th from Makara Rashi. Which one placement of Saturn out of twelve you have indicated i should consider. Please note, my things from right from start up is not good and i have been a late bloomer. Please advise. thanks and regards.

      Thank you for your question. I am unable to answer part of your question about Saturn, as I don’t know enough about Vedic astrology to understand the question properly. From a Western astrology perspective, your Saturn is in your 6th house of work and service tightly conjunct the Sun in that same house and opposing the Moon in your 12 house. This indicates that you are indeed a very hard worker who doesn’t get the breaks in life that come more easily to others. Because your Moon is in the 12th house in Gemini, it has been hard on you emotionally. Emotionally, communication is important to you (Moon in Gemini). The Moon’s position in the 12th has always felt thwarted and unable to express itself. You feel like you know the truth about many matters (Sun, Saturn in Sagittarius) but your attempts to communicate your knowledge is often thwarted (Moon in Gemini in the 12th). The good news is that as you grow older, especially in the last ten years, those influences have started to change and to even become beneficial. Given your chart, it is important for you to express your truth, not only for yourself, but for the sake of others. You have much wisdom to give to others.

    what are the effects of moon ketu in 6th house and saturn rahu in 12th house?

    • Ruby

      Without the sign of the planets in question, I can only give you a very limited answer. The Moon and South Node of the Moon in the 6th house indicates that you need to let go of some of your entrenched ideas around work and service. The 6th house is the traditional house of servants. In a past life you were called upon to always respond to duty, self sacrifice and humility. You were the one that always took care of the hard, unappreciated tasks. You may have even been a slave or indentured to another in some way. You have carried this attitude with you into the present life.

      Saturn and the North Node in the 12th house means that your spiritual purpose this lifetime is to work out issues around limitation and authority. You need to keep the thought foremost in your mind that, “I have done my duty and have given and sacrificed enough. It is now time for me to receive.” It is no longer about “doing.” It is about receiving. Saturn in the 12th will often show a person who does have serious responsibilities to others this lifetime. However, it you need to find a way to let go of those responsibilities as you are able. Always ask yourself, “Am I helping this person or keeping them weak by being overly involved in their life?” The 12th house also points to a spiritual answer. If you are not active in a spiritual practice (not necessarily religion), it would be very good for you to do so.

    My Ascendant is Gemini,Sun in the 1st house, Mercury & Venus in the 2nd house. Moon and Jupiter in the 9th house, Mars in the 7th house. Saturn in the 6th house. Rahu in the 11th house and ketu in the 5th house…

    Can you help me with my way forward in terms of Career (when will I get a Promotion or should I change or stay), and personal life (when will I get married and how), My family is going thru a bad phase too..

    • Ruby

      I’m sorry, but I don’t have enough information to easily determine what is going on in your life right now. For instance, you have stated that the Sun is in the 1st house in Gemini, but I do not know whether your ascendant is Gemini or Taurus and what the sign of your Midheaven is.
