Saturn (Astrology) in Roman mythology, Saturn is the god of agriculture, founder of civilizations and of social order, and conformity. It is the ruling planet of Capricorn and traditionally Aquarius, and is exalted in Libra.
- The Saturn Cycle is an important part of astrological interpretation. It moves the interpretation into the realm of transits, which takes into account where the planets have travelled since the movement of the birth chart.
Each planet takes a certain amount of time to travel thru all 12 signs and return to its original position in any given chart. The Moon takes only a month. The Sun takes a year. … Mercury and Venus stay close to the Sun, so their cycles through all signs are close to the Sun’s. Mars takes longer about two years...Jupiter takes about 12 years to complete a full cycle thru all 12 signs. Saturn takes 28-30 years to complete a full cycle. Because Saturn is a symbol of the wisdom which grows with age, its cycle is particularly important in reflecting our development. Every seven years, Saturn completes a a quarter of the cycle, and we move into a new stage of awareness.

- I came into the world under the sign of Saturn -- the star of the slowest revolution, the planet of detours and delays.
- Their ancestors had maintained, before the Christian era, that the Great Serpent — Jupiter, the Dragon of Life, the Father and "Good Divinity," had glided into the couch of Seniele, and now, the post-Christian Gnostics, with a very trifling change, applied the same fable to the man Jesus, and asserted that the same " Good Divinity," Saturn (Ilda-Baoth), had, in the shape of the Dragon of Life, glided over the cradle of the infant Mary. In their eyes the Serpent was the Logos.
- The star [Tycho's supernova] was at first like Venus and Jupiter, giving pleasing effects; but as it then became like Mars, there will next come a period of wars, seditions, captivity and death of princes, and destruction of cities, together with dryness and fiery meteors in the air,pestilence, and venomous snakes. Lastly, the star became like Saturn, and there will finally come a time of want, death, imprisonment and all sorts of sad things.
- If there be any truth in astrology, I may outlive a Jubilee, as yet I have not seen one revolution of Saturn, nor hath my pulse beat thirty years. - Sir Thomas Browne Religio Medici Part 1 section 41
- I was born in the planetary hour of Saturn, and I think I have a piece of that Leaden Planet in me. - Religio Medici Part 2 section 11 Sir Thomas Browne The Major Works ed. C.A. Patrides Penguin 1877
- You think that a wall as solid as the earth separates civilization from barbarism. I tell you the division is a thread, a sheet of glass. A touch here, a push there, and you bring back the reign of Saturn.
- It is said that the sure antidote of Saturn or Shanee's evil effect is the worship of Lord Hanuman. Scriptures say that when Saturn warned Lord Hanuman about his onset of the Seven and Half Years (w:Sade SatiSaade Saati) [period of bad times], the Monkey Lord accepted the challenge and allowed Saturn to have his play. When the planet dwelled on his head, the Monkey Lord ‘headed’ heavy rocks so viciously that the planet was almost crushed. Similar agony he faced when he tried to dwell on the Monkey Lord’ body and legs. Then the planet had to bow before the Lord, saying that whosoever worshipped Lord Hanuman shall be beyond the evil effect of the planet.

- Synchronicity does not admit causality in the analogy between terrestrial events and astrological [[constellations... What astrology can establish are the analogous events, but not that either series is the cause or the effect of the other. (For instance, the same constellation may at one time signify a catastrophe and at another time, in the same case, a cold in the head.) … In any case, astrology occupies a unique and special position among the intuitive methods... I have observed many cases where a well-defined psychological phase, or an analogous event, was accompanied by a transit (particularly when Saturn and Uranus were affected). -

- SATURN. h: Western astrology's major malefic has a lot to answer for. He forces us to face the essential necessities of life, the obligations to our parents, clan and race we acquire just by being born, and the responsibilities we have to accept if we wish to continue in existence.

- In traditional Chinese medicine the emphasis is on the blood and everything it nourishes, and on the process of transportation of material about the body...No wonder Saturn is blamed for degeneration and loss of vital organs.

- And the marrow was attached to the Moon...
And above the Moon is Mercury, its abode is over the bones,
And above Mercury is Venus, its abode is over the flesh,
Above Venus is the Sun, its abode is over the sinews
And above the Sun is Mars, its abode is over the blood veins.
Above Mars is Jupiter, its abode is over the skin, the beautifier of the bodies.
Above Jupiter is Saturn, its abode is over the hair.

Rahu is a malefic force, and Ketu provides supernatural influence. The North Node is the point where the Moon climbs the ecliptic, the South Node is the point where the Moon sinks below the ecliptic.

- The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still living parts. The Sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins.
