So, lets see what Saturn can do in 3rd house without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
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.
3rd house - It is house of your communication skills, neighbors, short distance travels, younger siblings, marketing, announcements, collecting information, hobbies and skills, self-efforts, business, courage etc.
So, Saturn in 3rd house restricts the communication skills of person (either oral or written) up to mid 30s but after that the same person can write the biggest of novels or give longest of speeches because by that time Saturn has taught its lessons. Here, it can give restrictive relation with younger siblings and it might even be possible that a person doesn't have any younger siblings. It is house of courage and Saturn represents fears, so here Saturn brings fear in the ability to take action. It means these people will think a lot before taking any action, up to the limit of insanity sometimes. But in mid 30s, same person will end up in becoming a businessman and taking big risks.
From 3rd house, Saturn's 1st aspect goes to 5th house and restricts the person's education or higher education. Love life becomes dry till mid 30s, so it is not one of the placement for having a love marriage because none of your love partner is going to stick for long. As Saturn represents long duration, aspect on 5th house actually gives very long love affair and then Saturn breaks it to teach lessons. At the same time, this is a good placement for arranged marriage. Child birth might be delayed or children may leave the person to a distant place for education and that may restrict their interaction with children.
Saturn's next aspect goes to 9th house of religion, higher learning and philosophy etc. So, although these people are prudent and matured but they don't have any great religious or philosophical inclination. Such an inclination is developed only after mid 30s when they realize that being religious, spiritual and philosophical is one of the best virtues we can have.
Saturn's last aspect goes to 12th house of foreign lands, spirituality and imagination etc. Here Saturn restricts person's chances to reach foreign lands till mid 30s. It restricts his imagination and spiritual deeds. One good thing that happens here is Saturn is limitation and 12th house is house of losses and expenses. So, person's expenses are very minimal, he becomes a kind of miser.
Hope this helps. Tomorrow, Saturn in 4th house.
