Jai Shri Krishna!! Today we are going to discuss the planet Saturn. Saturn is a planet that moves very slowly, and it takes almost 2 ½ years for it to travel from one sign to another. It is a planet that gives abundant miseries and fortunes based on your Karma. It may change your circumstances suddenly for better or for worse. It teaches the individuals lessons like a strict teacher with no chance of escaping from its clutches. It teaches discipline with harsh measures but which are ultimately beneficial for the Karmic journey of an individual. It rewards highly if the individual persevered the test of times and had maintained discipline. Among the planets, it is one of the most feared planets because of the extreme miseries it can bestow upon a person if badly placed. Saturn Sade Satti period is very much feared due to the complete opposite changes it can bring to the individuals.
The person influenced by Saturn is disciplines and laborious in nature. They usually have difficulty expressing their emotions, but they can be highly ambitious. They keep their plans to themselves and like to work in a consistent and secretive manner. Since Saturn relates to old things, these individuals have a high interest in the collection of antiques and whatever is historical. These individuals have a high capacity to persevere despite the odd circumstances, and usually get rewarded for their labor later in age. Structure and Order are the keywords for the persons dominated by Saturn.
