Endless mysteries of stars on the sky vault have always inspired people around the world, from ancient past, until modern days.

We have always been trying to find an answer to our existence, which is still the greatest mystery of humankind. We have come to amazing discoveries, researched our own home from its bottom to the top and yet, we have no answers to all questions that bother us.

An average human being is not that interested into so grandiose questions, but is focus on ones related to their own destiny.

Life is a wonderful thing, indeed, so we would all like to know the secret of what we deem a successful, fulfilled life. When misfortunes come our way, we wonder what we have done to deserve it. When great things happen, we are thankful to our fortune.

Many of these things come from our own doing, of course and, regardless of if we are conscious of it or not, there is, perhaps, something more. As astrologers suggest, skies above play major role in our lives.

Planets and other heavenly objects we see from our home Earth affect overall life at home. It is not just a speculation, but there are firm scientific evidences proving it is so and why is it so.

However, no official science deals with an individual. Astrology, which is today considered a pseudo science, answers to that.

Although it does not fall under the category of acknowledged and officially recognized disciplines, well, it has all elements of a scientific approach. It has its principles and rules, theories and methods and people dedicated to studying the sky from an alternative perspective take it very seriously.

Astrology has many sub-categories and paths, but we are interested in personalized astrology or, how it is called, natal astrology. It analyzes individual human destinies, based upon their birth charts, which are based upon and consisted of precise planetary positions at the time a person was born.

If you are interested in having your birth chart done, you have to provide your astrologer with your place, date and exact time of birth. He or she would recreate the image of the sky the way it was at the time you were born.

According to astrology, this image determines both your personality and your lifeline. To some point, at least.

Saturn and Horoscope

We commonly say that our destinies are written in the stars, especially when we face situations and circumstances that seem unchangeable. It is true there are indeed things we cannot affect and change, ones that should be accepted.

Sometimes, it seems just as an easier way of dealing with things; other times, it is necessary if we are to progress and move forward.

Our birth chart and planets in it could tell us more about that.

Planets, however, do not tell us what to do and what will definitely happen. Our complex birth charts consist of many elements and all of them together create our potentials not facts that are in total unchangeable.

This chart or horoscope delivered from it is like a precious, heavenly guideline.

Planets affect our destiny and our personality; by knowing how they do it, we could take the best of what destiny offers. Today we focus on Saturn, which is one of ‘social planets’. The other one is Jupiter.

Social planets affect a whole generation, because they spend pretty long time in one zodiac sign. Saturn spends about two and a half year in each one.

Therefore, people born in the same year or a couple of years would have Saturn in the same position. Social planets are responsible for our relation with the outer world. Saturn and Jupiter affect us differently.

Saturn is the planet of restrictions, withdrawal, inhibitions and seriousness. It is also associated with time, structure and boundaries and it rules the signs of Capricorn.

Many see Saturn a maleficent and unwelcome guest in horoscope. Some astrologers even claim it brings only misery and misfortune, because of cruel way it works. Saturn is there to teach us life lessons, but its lessons are commonly hard to deal with. This astrological planet is cold and dry.

It rules our elderly age and is associated with everything that lasts for long and usually it is something we do not want, such as depression, illness, poverty and so on. Some astrologers say Saturn always brings bad luck, even if aspects with it are good.

However, not all are of such an opinion. Saturn could be a good teacher.

Saturn helps you see the light in the darkness and realize there is always something good, even if circumstances are dire. Saturn offers valuable lessons of patience, of the importance of perseverance, persistence, calmness, strictness, responsibility and seriousness. It makes us mature and diligent.

Saturn is associated with both solitude and loneliness and you are aware these two are very different.
