Saturn is the most feared planet of all, and for more logics than one. It is not there in the cosmos to generate everything cakewalk for you. It is there providing us hardships, teaching us chapters of life. But this is not to make us hurtful and insulting, as is the case with Mars negative impact. It is there to make us better human beings, filtering the negative energy to leave us with refined personalities, ready to drive towards spirituality and higher studies. It wants us to be disciplined, thus poses repudiation and limitations. Having Saturn’s impact doesn’t always mean retraction of success. It simply means delay. In some cases, however, it also denies the native achievement if positioned in or faceted by enemy sign, or is debilitated. It makes sure to play the character of a teacher in our lives. Its positive impact brings us the old age wisdom, a sense of conventionality, courage, authority, and a lot more.

In Vedic Jyotish, a planet is said to be combust when it moves within a particular radius from the Sun.

"Saturn retrograde is good transit," fortuneteller Lisa Stardust tells Refinery29. "When the karmic planet Saturn starts slowing down, it provides us time to reflect on matters such as relationships and our aspects at work."

While the ringed planet presents to move backwards in its orbit, Stardust says that we'll be inclined to contemplate and strategize our next moves. "This may include deciding if we want to venture out on our own and become an independent contractor," she says. It's an especially opportune time for love too. If you've been contemplating taking the next step with your partner

Saturn is our Challenge and lessons of life. Saturn is effecting on old-age teeth bones in the human body, Diseases, changes etc. When Saturn comes in the horoscope of anyone nothing easy. You have to work hard continuously over the possible period of life. Saturn makes a person legend as legends have one thing in common that they chose one field and work hard in it for a whole life.

In Astrology Saturn has 3 aspects. Saturn aspects third house from its position the seventh house from its position and teenth house from its position. So if Saturn is the third house.
