Saturn in the natal chart is what I call the “reap what you sow” planet. It cycles through the signs once every 28 years. I will discuss Saturn in the signs in part 2. In the houses, Saturn affects each as follows:
SATURN IN 1ST HOUSE or ASCENDANT Is quite self-centered, lives a calculated life and if afflicted can be introverted.
SATURN IN 2ND HOUSE Earns financial security through great effort can be preoccupied over getting and keeping money; if afflicted, denies self and may suffer financial losses.
