Role of Saturn in horoscopes with different Ascendants.
Saturn becomes the lord of the 10th and the 11th houses. It primarily gives the beneficial results of the house of gains, i.e., the 11th house, if well placed.
In this case, Saturn is the lord of the 9th and 10th houses and as such acts as yogakaraka. Saturn is conducive to good income and immense riches, if well placed.
Saturn becomes the lord of the 8th and the 9th houses. Since its Mool-Trikona sign falls in the 9th house, it gives the results of the 9th house, i.e., of good luck in its major period and sub- period. Saturn is the significator of longevity. Here he will be one of the lords of the house of longevity (eighth). As such a strong and well-aspected Saturn makes the native long-lived. An afflicted Saturn, lord of the house of father and an afflicted Jupiter, the significator of father, of course, make the father of the native of moderate means.
Saturn becomes the lord of the 7th and the 8th houses. The 7th is an angular house and as such Saturn as lord ceases to be a malefic. But, it is at the same time, lord of the worst house in the horoscope: the 8th house. It gives bad results financially during its major-period and sub-period. Saturn can, however, give favorable results financially, provided the 8th house and Saturn are aspected and influenced by malefic planets only, and there is no influence on them of the benefics. In such a case, Saturn constitutes a Vipareeta Raja-yoga.
Saturn is the lord of the 6th and the 7th houses of the horoscope. Here also Saturn ceases to be a malefic by virtue of the 7th Kendra. But, the simultaneous lordship of the bad house: 6th renders it a malefic planet functionally. Hence, Saturn in its major period and sub-period gives adverse results financially. Unless, Saturn is well-aspected or is otherwise under a benefit influence, the native marries a girl, much lower in status than himself.
Saturn becomes the lord of the 5th and the 6th houses. As the lord of a trine, Saturn is good financially, but as lord of the 6th house, it is bad. Hence, as a friend of the lord of the Ascendant, Saturn, on the whole, is slightly better in financial matters, in this case.
As Saturn owns the fourth angle and the fifth trine, it becomes a Yogakaraka planet and gives very favourable financial results in its major-period and sub-period. This malefic becomes the very best of planets which is a unique feature.
Saturn becomes the lord of the 3rd and the 4th houses of the horoscope. As lord of the 4th Kendra, Saturn becomes malefic. But the combined influence of Saturn and Mars on the 4th house and its lord generally confers land and built-up property on the native.
Saturn becomes the lord of the 2nd and 3rd houses of the horoscope. As lord of the 2nd house, Saturn has to give the results of the 3rd house, a bad house. Hence, in its major-period and sub-period, Saturn would give bad results financially, unless it is in an angle in a favourable position.
Saturn assumes the lordship of the 1st and the 2nd houses of the horoscope. It gives very favourable financial results. If Saturn is weak, the educational aspects come into an adverse position
Saturn becomes the lord of the 1st and the 12th houses I he 1st house being both an angle and a trine, is one of the best houses and as such Saturn in its major-period and sub-period will give very favourable financial results both with regard to Ascendant and the 12th house.
