Saturn in Astrology – Significations, Transits and Progressions

You have definitely heard of karma, but did you know that Saturn is the planet that governs it? Yes, Saturn is masculine energy that concerns itself with Karma and rules both Capricorn and Aquarius. It concerns itself with lessons from our past experiences and has the role of a teacher, or old people in general. So order, and the way we structure our affairs in general are ruled by this dry and cold planet, it reminds us of our boundaries, our responsibilities, and our commitments. Saturn brings definition to our lives, it makes us aware of the need for self-control and of boundaries and our limits.

Saturn is what makes us have a sense of tradition and learned ways, what we know as conventionality, it also upholds discipline and responsibility. Much like the Sun, Saturn shares similarities with fathers and authority figures in our lives, unpleasantly constraining us from excesses, but helping us grow and understanding the world around us. This ringed planet gives us the long term view of our problems and our focus in life.

Lastly, in addition to the others mentioned before, when you think of Saturn, you won’t be wrong to associate it with Conscience, Maturity and Realism.
