The reason for this is that representing law, truth, and morality will always provide an abundant amount of support from society. Most importantly, being righteous attracts blessings and support from the almighty God.

Humanistic Natural Leaders

Saturn is the planet of societies and civilizations while Aquarius is the most humanistic sign of all. That is the reason why it is the 11th zodiac sign, which represents large groups of people and communities.

More specifically, Aquarius carries the most important trait that is required to form groups and unite people together into strong unity.

With a dignified Saturn in Aquarius, these traits are greatly amplified which reflects that individuals with this combination are very humanistic from the soul. That is to say, they have a strong interest in the general welfare of societies, communities, and masses of people in general.

They are also concerned about societal values which makes them motivated to maintain and protect these values.

The humble sign Aquarius is the comfort zone (moolatrikona sign) of Saturn. This gives such natives the capability to let go of their ego and become united with everyone.

This, in turn, ensures great cooperation with their society and community. They feel as if they are blended in their society and this makes them able to connect with others easily.

In addition to being highly humanistic, they are also blessed with natural leadership qualities. These traits are provided by the highly auspicious 1st disposition, which signifies courage, vitality, beginnings, and power to initiate.

This proves that their desire to unite people is enhanced by their ability to take proper action to achieve this dream. They also have the courage to initiate new beginnings regardless of whether they have opposition or not.

If they have support, they are more than happy to cooperate with well-wishers. If they have sinful opponents, they have no problem with harnessing strictness as an armor.

Tolerant & Great Socializers

As they are deeply humanistic it also makes them highly tolerant. That is to say, they are able to tolerate the basic differences between people and consider them in their endeavors.

Without getting upset, they strive to find compromises and that golden point of balance which ensures harmony within large groups despite fundamental differences.

They also always consider the opinions and basic needs of people who surround them. They listen to the voice of their community enthusiastically and this makes them truly attractive in front of everyone.

Their humbleness enhances this effect to a great extent because it is what enables them to consider the ideas of others in the first place. While they are extremely decisive and determined, they still manage to adjust their decisions while caring for others.

This actually reflects that they are also very good socializers and listeners as well. It all starts with attentive listening. By listening to others, it is possible to understand their ideas which in turn allows them to make better decisions that benefit the whole community.

This is a major character trait that helps them to bring people together to achieve great common goals. Their high level of respect towards masses of people is greatly amplified by a dignified planet of civilizations Saturn.

In addition to that, their way of socializing has a strong philanthropic touch to it. That is to say, they often speak about higher values and generate discussions on how to improve the well-being of people in their surroundings.

Compassionate & Strict

However, Saturn is a natural harsh planet that makes these natives also very strict which is required to maintain or restore order during difficult times.

Not only that these individuals are extremely compassionate, kind, supportive, but also strict, cruel, and harsh whenever the circumstances require them to awaken these traits. A dignified Saturn ensures that both their kindness and strictness are motivated by good intentions.

The courage provided by an auspiciously manifested 1st disposition is what gives them the ability to restore and maintain order in society when it is required. The fixed modality of Aquarius is what drives them to strive forward until succeeding in this.

It proves that these individuals are indeed very competent leaders of the masses as they know exactly when to be kind and strict.

Speaking of which, people with this combination also have a deeply rigid, straightforward, rough, and frightful way of expressing themselves through words.

The astrological reason for this is the 2nd disposition which signifies speech. As the energies of the 2nd house are manifested by a cold and strict planet Saturn from a disciplined and authoritative Capricorn sign, it influences their intonation by making it deeply strict.

However, as Saturn is dignified, it indicates that their expression remains honest and polite at the same time. This is probably why their voice is heard loud and clear in the first place. Politeness combined with strictness makes them sound very mature which in turn ensures that they are taken seriously.

Famous & Celebrated

In addition to that, the 11th zodiac sign Aquarius signifies auspicious celebrations besides large groups of people while the 1st disposition (dignity, honor, recognition) gives the capacity to become famous in these groups.

This effect is completely self-explanatory as all the great character traits provided by this combination promote becoming famous in their society or community.

At the same time, Aquarius is a very humble sign in which Saturn, the ruler of this sign, amplifies these traits. It indicates that they are not interested in getting all the spotlight on them which ironically attracts even more recognition. As they behave like the hearts of their community, they are naturally loved and celebrated by everyone in the community.

Inherently Intelligent

The 1st disposition also signifies mentality while the 2nd disposition signifies mental resources (wealth of mentality). Accordingly, individuals with this combination are blessed with natural intelligence and a strong mentality which helps them to harness wisdom effectively and grasp new information quickly.

What enhances this effect further is the fact that Saturn is the planet of experience and maturity. Therefore, regardless of age, these individuals always appear very mature and experienced.

In addition to that, Aquarius as the 11th sign represents the houses of gradual growth and expansion. Therefore, as this 1st disposition is formed in the 11th sign, it indicates that the wisdom and intelligence develop consistently and gradually over time.

They have a never-ending thirst for knowledge which motivates them to learn new skills which also supports them in their ambitious endeavors greatly.

This indicates that they possess the knowledge of how to link people together to form communities. They have a desire to create networks for a higher purpose to influence the lives of people in the world.

They like to think big and launch great projects with a dream to reach out worldwide. They create a lot of useful connections with people in order to build up a strong social circle around them with the intention to realize their selfless and grand ideas.

Without the strong traits of Aquarius, there would be no significant accomplishments by mankind that are possible only with a strong sense of unity which ties people together and motivates them to cooperate and strive to achieve common goals.

Aquarius is the comfort zone of Saturn which indicates that they are less hard.workign than individuals with Saturn in Capricorn. However, this indicates that they are motivated to invent a way that helps them to manage and/or automate their tasks.

With that being said, as lazy people, they work more on their ideas than actions. By doing this, they ensure that their actions are actually very efficient and require significantly less amount of hard work.

Moreover, by avoiding wasting their precious energy on repeated tasks and hard work, they are able to concentrate more on brainstorming ideas.

Ambitious & Prosperous

Aquarius as the 11th zodiac sign also signifies the fulfillment of desires, ambitions, and materialistic desires. Therefore, people with this combination are naturally very ambitious and have very high aspirations in life.

With a dignified Saturn, these natives are blessed with the fulfillment of desires along with materialistic success. However, they still consider the intangible values as their greatest rewards.

That is to say, what they truly aspire is to witness that their hard work and effort successfully benefits society, community, or even the world depending on how this combination interacts with other fortunate pointers in the natal birth chart.

Materialistic Happiness

As they are naturally detached from materialistic desires, they attract more prosperity. As per the law of attraction, what we attract what we detach ourselves from.

The 11th zodiac sign represents the 11th astrological house which belongs to the triangle of desires, in which a dignified Saturn indicates having healthy desires and being free from excessive worldly desires.

The fact that they are so humble and selfless actually provides divine support and blesses them even more materialistic benefits that they ever aspire or dream of.

In fact, a strong Saturn in the 11th sign ensures that many, if not all of their desires are fulfilled.

Moreover, Saturn positioned in the 11th sign as being the ruler of it creates an effect that is similar to the combination of 11th house ruler in the 11th house. As a result of this effect, the gains and fulfillment of desires are expanded tremendously.

In addition to that, the 2nd disposition represents the 2nd house which belongs to the triangle of wealth. As Saturn manifests the energies of this house auspiciously, it enhances the beneficial effect regarding wealth gains.

In other words, they are also blessed with a solid financial foundation and stability which helps them to undertake many ventures conveniently. As being generally prosperous, they are blessed to witness their financial condition increasing gradually.

Many Undertakings

This combination also expands the matters of wealth and ambitions as the 11th sign Aquarius represents gradual expansion and exponential branching.

Accordingly, this combination indicates exponentially expanded ambitions which cause the desire to undertake many ventures which prove to be successful for the most part. This, in turn, indicates that their gains are also expanded exponentially as they most likely come from multiple sources.

As the 1st disposition of mentality suggests, their minds are constantly full of ideas that make them eager to take action to realize them. They are efficient perfectionists who do not want to waste any idea that flash through their minds.

Therefore, people with this combination are inclined to launch various projects by implementing their ingenious and often inventive ideas.

However, as their ideas are always expanding, they have a hard time finishing their launched projects. That is to say, they are prone to engage too many tasks at once which at times may exhaust them.

At the same time, they are able to manage their tasks well as they are very calculative and strive to minimize risks and increase efficiency. With increased efficiency, they prevent waste of energy and thus are able to fulfill their tremendous amount of tasks they invent for themselves.

In addition to that, as they are great and skillful socializers, they are able to form groups to further increase efficiency and handle the ever-expanding workload of tasks.

Stable Wealth & Prosperity

Saturn is a slow-orbiting and conservative planet which indicates that individuals with strong Saturn in Aquarius have a slow but steady growth of wealth.

In fact, as they are conservative or cautious, they refrain from taking uncalculated risks which means that they are not passionate about schemes that promise to get rich quickly. Moreover, as wealth is not their primary motive, they never rush for monetary gains in the first place.

They acknowledge that they must offer real value to the masses first before being blessed with abundant gains. It is because Saturn is the planet of karma which requires us to work hard, persevere, remain dignified, and overcome obstacles in order to prove the worthiness of blessings. They work with the highest integrity first and after seeing results, profits start to flow in abundantly.

Those who work more than they are paid for will soon be paid more than they are working. This smart quote applies to these natives perfectly.

In fact, their responsible nature and good deeds towards the masses increase positive karma over time which eventually brings great rewards and often unexpectedly.

Most importantly, a dignified Saturn indicates that people with this combination enjoy an abundant amount of wealth which is earned honestly and righteously.

Warm Greetings my friends! Our desire is to share the miraculous ancient knowledge with the world with the intention to help guide people in their lifepaths. Our interpretations are all based on classical authorities of Vedic astrology and their books, as well as general observations.


  • That was some the most accurate information on my behavior traits. Thank you so much Martin for this article it really helped me understand and appreciate myself better.

    I am a very good listener and have a broad perspective. I do always have different ideas on how to help people heal.

    I have my Saturn in Aquarius in Retrograde position in my birth chart though. Will that affect me when it comes to fulfillment of desires and financial stability? Will it have any twisted results overall?
    Can you please share some information on this ?

    Thank you in advance!

    • Hello Shreya and thank you very much for your valuable feedback!

      I have recently analyzed the planetary period of Rx Saturn in Aquarius of one person. Shortly speaking, the period was very difficult and full of dangerous obstacles. However, no matter how hard it was, he managed to see hidden blessings in these struggles as it prepared him for the greatest battle of life which he won successfully. This Rx Aquarius Saturn raised him to the very top through struggles.

      A year ago I happened to analyze the planetary period of Aquarius Saturn of another person, which was not retrograde. The sail was a whole lot of smoother and victories were also present as the 2nd and 1st dispositions of gain and prosperity suggest.

      Retrograde in Vedic can be translated as crooked which means that the individual must deal with very bad things in life but a strong and dignified Saturn helps to overcome these.

      • Thank you Martin for the information. I am actually facing a lot of hardships right now and have since childhood. I had to work extra hard with less outputs and this was scenario most of the times in my career.

        So will this be the case throughout my life or does the planets mature and shows good results as time passes?
        Also, my Saturn is in 3rd house and as you said 3rd house is the house of fulfilling desires and self-improving house. Is this RX Saturn affecting these traits in my life?

  • Hello im a saturn rx pisces 1h in western a and in vedic im an aquarius im waiting for my pisces saturn return next year but in vedic im aquarius does it mean i already went tru my saturn return?

    • Hello Rachel

      Saturn is currently in Aquarius 1 degree approximately. It will go back to Capricorn for a couple of months and then transit Aquarius. So your Saturn return is still ahead.
