The great ringed planet is the taskmaster of the astrological chart. It tells us to shape up and take some responsibility. It is the planet of kharma, and of life lessons to be learned. It will discipline us until we are able to exercise self discipline.
Balancing Jupiter’s good luck, Saturn is often known as the “bearer of misfortune”, for it will correct us and deprive us of the illusions and false values we hold in our lives, burning them away to reveal the truth of one’s self.
Saturn is the Guardian of the threshold between this world and the next, between the phsyical and the spiritual planes of existence.
Through Saturn, we will get what we deserve. Whether we like it or not!
