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 Scorpio, so the description given here may change for you if your Saturn is although in the sign of Scorpio but in 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.
Scorpio is the 8th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things and energy related with 8th house of horoscope like Sudden Events, Secrecy, Dark World, Occult Science, Research, Inheritance, Serving Others, Taxes etc. Besides these things sign of Scorpio also represent transformation, means changing the whole nature upside down. Now with Scorpio, scary things start in Astrology. This is one sign which is favorite of every Astrologer, because it has maximum secrets, so every astrologer gets maximum scope of researching. This is sign about which no one can tell with precision that what will happen to the planets in it, as it is sign of secrecy itself. Scorpio is one sign where no planet is happy. Scorpio is also one of those unique signs which has 2 rulers, i.e. Mars and Ketu. Scorpio is the sign which shows our Karmic Debt in this world. Scorpio consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatras, i.e. Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha.
Now, this becomes one of the most trickiest positions to interpret and reason is that Saturn is one which represents our Karmic Debts, Scorpio is a Karmic Sign and Ketu is co-ruler of Scorpio, which is another planet related with Karmic Backlog of a person. So, there is lots of past life Karma getting involved here. So 1st thing to remember here is that besides Saturn's position in Scorpio, we need to keep an eye on positions of Mars & Ketu (both co-rulers of Scorpio) in horoscope to actually understand what is happening and what is going to be result?
1st of all, Saturn in Scorpio shows a person who is afraid and fearful of change/transformation. As Scorpio represents transformation and Saturn represents limitation/restriction or kind of resistance, this position would show a person who doesn't like changes and transformation in life, but as Saturn is in the sign of Scorpio, those changes are bound to come-in and person needs to learn how to deal with those secrets. So, in earlier part of life, they are resistant to changes in life but as they grow and Saturn reaches maturity age, they learn that changes are bound to happen in life and we should know how to deal with it. So in later part of life, they are more welcoming to changes. Now, in whichever house this position is taking place, person is extremely secretive about that area of life.
Now, the role of Mars and Ketu in this position of Saturn in Scorpio.
So, Mars' position will show that in which area of life change will occur and Ketu's position will show that which area of life will be impacted by that change. So, it is very necessary for Saturn in Scorpio person to have these two planets well placed. If they are well placed, then it shows that not only person has the capability to face the change but the end result of change will also be positive. For example - if someone has Saturn in Scorpio in 2nd house, Mars in Leo in 11th house and Ketu in Virgo in 12th house. It shows that when this person starts his Saturn Mahadasha, there will be sudden transformation and events in his family or finances (2nd house) due to his own desires/income/earnings (11th house), which will either make him go to any foreign place or can make him spiritual (12th house). So, this is the way we need to interpret this position. It is very necessary to keep Mars and Ketu in mind while judging Saturn in Scorpio.
Again, impact of Saturn's effect in Scorpio will be controlled by the various nakshatra Saturn might be in. Like, if Saturn is in Vishakha nakshatra, then we need to check Jupiter's position as Jupiter is lord of Vishakha. If Saturn is in Anuradha nakshatra, then Saturn will be in its own Nakshatra. If Saturn is in Jyeshtha nakshatra, then it is impacted by Jyeshtha's lord Mercury.
Last but not the least, as I said we have to look at position and conditions both lords of Scorpio, i.e. Mars and Ketu, to finally come to know what is going on with this Saturn here. So, overall reading is much more necessary than a particular planet in sign position.
Tomorrow, Saturn in Sagittarius.
