Saturn, the ringed planet represents principles of responsibility, restriction and endurance. As a slower moving planet its energy can bring constriction and limitation but also perseverance. It represents what we fear and what hurdles must be overcome. The placement of Saturn in a person’s chart will indicate where they feel tested or challenged and how they deal with authority and rules. As Saturn is often referred to as Father Time it will show where things in a person’s life will take time and how they learn lessons through the experience of life. Maturity and the rites of passage are this planet’s domain – all of which are reached through discipline, boundaries and respect. Capricorn, an earth sign is associated with Saturn and is symbolised by the mountain goat determined to climb to the top no matter the obstacle. In traditional astrology, it rules Aquarius highlighting unbiased detachment.
