Saturn is a slow moving planet and takes two-and-a half years to traverse one sign and around 28 years to complete one cycle through the entire zodiac. The Saturn Return which occurs around the age of 28 is renowned for major transformations in ones life. Saturn's energy is repressive and dense but ever-lasting. Saturn governs our karmic responsibilities and our capacity to learn about life in every part of life.
Saturn rules responsibilities, restrictions and limitations of life, and the lessons you must learn in life. It does not deny or diminish imagination, inspiration, spirituality, and good fortune but it does demand that these things be given structure and meaning.
The mighty Saturn is more a friend than a foe. Saturn is an impartial hard task- master, serious and conservative. Signifies longevity, makes one careful, thoughtful, laborious, violent, envious, accumulator of wealth, prudent, contemplative, reserved, economical and patient. Its transit over the natal planets is of great importance.
Jupiter is the significator for children, education, religion, prosperity, fame, gain, good marital order, providential help, political power, good luck, finances and long journeys.
