Saturn symbolizes darkness, as it is the enemy of light. In the body, Saturn rules the nails, hair, teeth, bones, and nervous system. Diseases of the ears, jaundice, gout, deafness, depression, anxiety, insanity, and asthma are also connected with a Saturn that is ill aspected or badly placed in the birth chart.
In Sanskrit Saturn is called as “Shani”. When it is well placed in the seventh house, or well aspected, it gives its natives integrity, wisdom, spirituality, fame, patience, ability to lead, authority, long life, organizational abilities, sincerity, honesty, love of justice, awareness of right and wrong (because it rules the inner conscience), nonattachment, and asceticism.
When it is ill-posited or ill-aspected it brings miseries, sorrow, delay, obstruction, disappointment, disharmony, disputes, dejection, difficulties, despondency, and destruction (death). It makes its natives undisciplined, irresponsible, dishonest, dull, addicted to drugs, sadistic, greedy, lonely and afraid. Accidents, humiliation, prison, lawsuits, suicidal tendencies, fear of theft, thefts, blame, enmity, pessimism, and premature aging are also attributed to an ill-aspected or ill-posited Saturn.
