Symbol

Saturn represents your Way of Structure. Its placement in Sign and House reveals how we want to structure our lives and where we face restrictions that we must overcome or accept.

Consider someone with Saturn in Aries in the 6th House. Aries is a Fire Sign. Fire’s expression is pioneering, creative, and exploratory. In Aries, the Element acts independently, heroically, and aggressively. So, the key phrase for this person is “Your Way of Structure manifests through your independent and heroic quest for and attraction to maverick and individualistic service for others.” In short, he or she completes tasks and meets deadlines best when they are left alone to structure their own process and timetable. Micro-managing this person is a very bad idea.

Saturn expresses itself through a Sign and acts most powerfully in an area of your life by House. This section will look at all 12 Sign and House placements for Saturn. It is important to make a clear distinction between the Sign and House. While it is correct that each Zodiac Sign rules a particular House, it is vital not to conflate the two.

Saturn in Aries is not the same as Saturn in the 1st House even though Aries rules the first House. A person with Saturn in Aries has a Way of Structure devoted to independent and maverick behavior regardless of House placement. Someone with Saturn in the 1st House has a Way of Structure devoted to figuring oneself out and working on identity issues over the course of his or her lifetime.
