Today, Saturn in Aries/Debilitated Saturn.
A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Saturn in Aries, so the description given here may change for you if your Saturn is although in the sign of Aries but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets. --
Saturn is all that which we don't like in our life. Saturn is delay, frustration, restriction, limitation and anxiety. It is hard-work and labor. It is people of authority, like boss at your work place or father-figure at home. Saturn is Master and Servant both (depends on who uses Saturn in what way). Saturn is our Karmic debt from life. Saturn is the things we didn't treat too well in our past life. Saturn is our challenges and lessons of life. Saturn is old-age, teeth in human body, diseases, transformation etc. Saturn is discipline, organisation, structure, government, law & order etc.
Aries is the 1st sign of zodiac belt, so it represents the things and energy of 1st house of horoscope like Self, Personality etc. Besides that, Aries is the sign of our individuality, our aggression, our actions, our competitive ability etc. Aries is ruled by Mars and it is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras named Ashwini, Bharani and Krittika.
So, 1st thing related with this placement is Saturn is Debilitated in Aries, it means it is weak in Aries sign. Further, it is weakest at 20 degrees of Aries.
Now, the question comes as to why it is the weakest in Aries?
So, there are a few reasons. Saturn represents Servants and people who do menial jobs but Aries is the sign of King-hood. So, Saturn doesn't feel like in element. He thinks where did I end up here? I should be in Market Place, Dealing with people and resolving their issues. What I am doing sitting on throne? 2nd thing is that Saturn represents slow movement and delays, whereas Aries is the sign of Aggression and Achieving before anyone else. So, the basic foundation of Aries and Saturn don't match. That's why, Saturn goes debilitated here.
So, when Saturn is in Aries it doesn't mean that Saturn doesn't work at all. It works and it works faster than normal as it is in the sign of Aries but after some time, it starts feeling frustrated as it doesn't see results coming. Saturn loses one of its basic traits here, i.e. Patience. Saturn will still be workaholic and hard working and work for the longest of hours but these guys won't have clear sense of direction where they should work. It might be that they are even in right company but not taking up right work/responsibility for themselves. They are working harder than others but in wrong areas of work. As Aries represents the Head of Human Body and Saturn is a slow moving planet, it shows someone who has difficulty in quickly grasping things. It also shows someone getting illness related to blood, bone and fatigue as these things are related with Saturn and Mars (Lord of Aries) and Saturn signifies ailments. Saturn represents Law but as it is in its weakest position, it becomes fearful of same law. Basically, professionally they have to strive far greater than their colleagues to receive far lesser than their colleagues. But if they keep on putting their best efforts then after attaining maturity age (36 years) Saturn starts blessing them for all their hard-work. So, keyword here with this placement is Persistence.
Again, the nakshatra Saturn is in, will have great say in Saturn's functioning, When it is in Ashwini Nakshatra, the results of Saturn will be impacted by Ketu's position in horoscope as Ketu is lord of Ashwini. If it is in Bharani Nakshatra, then Saturn is in Venus nakshatra and we need to check Venus position. Similarly, If it is in Krittika Nakshatra, then results of Saturn will be impacted by Sun's position in horoscope as Sun is lord of Krittika.
As stated above, Mars is lord of Aries, hence Mars is going to have biggest impact on Saturn's working here.
Tomorrow, Saturn in Taurus.
