Astrology is a very important means of information about people and situations and cannot be ignored. Astrology gives us information we otherwise wouldn’t be able to discover.
It can inform us about people’s personalities, their goals and interests, preferences, obstacles they could encounter as well as the outcome of various situations or relationships, and give answers to many other questions we have.
The natal chart is the image of the sky in the moment when the chart was cast. The planets in that moment are placed inside the 12 houses of the chart, and the interpretation of their positions and their meanings gives the astrologer information about every question they have.
Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning
The making of the natal chart is the beginning of astrology interpretation. In the past, this took a lot of time and knowledge; the results were often inaccurate.
During time the process of calculating natal carts and doing other astrology calculations became easier; when astrology computer programs were made it became a work which lasts only seconds. Everyone can make their natal chart nowadays. The analysis of the chart still needs skills and knowledge.
As we mentioned, the natal chart has 12 houses. They all have specific meanings and areas of rulership. The planet ruler of the sign on the top of the house is very significant for the analysis.
Also, the planets inside the house give additional importance to the house and the areas it rules; they color the meaning of the house with their energy and meaning.
Houses with planets are the most significant ones; they give insight about the focus of attention as well as the areas where there is most action. These houses give additional details about personal traits as well as about possible life events.
In general, the astrologer interprets the natal chart by analyzing the meaning of the chart rulers (those are the planets rulers of the Ascendant and Sun sign), the house rulers (the planets ruling the sign on the top of the house), the planets in houses, the planets in signs, the aspects between planets, transits, progressions, etc.
The analysis depends on the knowledge and experience of the astrologer, and the type of question asked.
By analyzing the houses in the natal chart, as well as the planets inside some of the houses, the astrologer can find out many details about someone, for example, their behavior, appearance, beliefs, attitude, interests, family and family members, parents, siblings, children, ancestors, education, profession, career, work, coworkers, social life, friends, communication skills, enemies, neighbors, health and physical condition, finances, travels, etc.
Saturn – Basic Qualities
The planet Saturn is a giant planet and only the planet Jupiter is bigger than it; it has a system of rings, made of ice and rocky debris.
Saturn also has 82 moons and the largest moon is called Titan. Like many other planets, Saturn doesn’t have a solid ground.
The god Saturn was a much respected deity in ancient Roman times. This deity ruled agriculture, soil, crops, and all matters concerning earth.
In astrology, Saturn also rules agriculture and soil; it is also the ruler of hard work, discipline, organization, precision, patience, order, authority, tradition, traditional values, perseverance, endurance, determination, career, business, responsibility, duties, stability, destiny, chronic states, illness, financial issues and poverty.
The house of the natal chart where Saturn is placed shows the areas which require order and organization, patience, endurance, responsibility, taking care of someone, duties, etc.

Because of that, these people have a strong personality and never complain. They can endure many hardships without saying a word. These people often possess leadership qualities and end up as managers or in other position where they organize others.
The planet Saturn takes 29.5 years to circle the Sun. The moment when Saturn returns to the natal position is referred to as “the Saturn’s return”.
During this time, the person evaluates their life achievements and decides whether they are satisfied with them or not.
The events of Saturn nature often happen during progressions and transits which trigger the person’s natal Saturn. These are the times where the person learns major life lessons.
