Saturn in Aries ♈️ ⋆ Debilitated


Last updated on July 3rd, 2022 at 08:12 pm

Why is Saturn debilitated in Aries?

It is debilitated because it is the conservative planet of caution, foresight, and long-term planning which finds it hard to function effectively in Aries, which is impulsive, risky, and adventurous. In the environment of Aries, agility is key to success while Saturn does not like to rush and take risks too much. Aries prefers to initiate everything new and unique, while Saturn prefers the old-fashioned, risk-free, and conservative way of acting.

This combination is considered inauspicious by default because Saturn loses a lot of strength and dignity because of being in the sign of its fall. Therefore, the significances of both Saturn and Aries get damaged and inauspicious results are produced.

However, if the debilitation of Saturn is canceled, the initial weaknesses can be converted to major strengths over time. If the cancellation occurs and also Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga is formed, this combination provides brilliant results in abundance.

There are a lot of ways for the cancellation of debilitation to occur. Hence, it is important to note that it is relatively rare that only negative outcomes are extracted out of this combination. It is likely that the cancellation occurs and positive outcomes are produced.

Mars, the ruler of Aries, becomes a guide to Saturn in this sign which makes deeper outcomes of this combination highly reliant on it.

Saturn in this sign is in 3rd and 4th from own signs Aquarius and Capricorn respectively.

The 3rd disposition represents the 3rd astrological house which belongs to the triangle of desires and signifies courage, motivation, ambition, willpower, talents, skills, communication, efforts, ability to harness skills in action, etc.

The 4th disposition represents the auspicious 4th quadrant house which belongs to the triangle of salvation and peace of mind, satisfaction, nourishment, domestic happiness, homeland, comforts, conveyances, properties, etc.

Because of the fall of Saturn, both dispositions get damaged along with their significance unless the cancellation of debilitation occurs.

With that being said, more outcomes of this combination are dependent on the placement of Mars, which becomes the guiding planet of Saturn in this sign owned by Mars.

Results of Saturn in Aries


At the first glance, debilitated planets seem to be producing merely negative effects as the definition suggests. In reality, the situation is not that bad with such planets.

Namely, debilitated planets indicate which parts of ourselves are not mature yet. Thus, debilitated planets give utterly valuable information about what needs more attention to improve and evolve on the soul level.

Therefore, debilitated planets are nothing but opportunities to acknowledge shortcomings and transform them into the greatest strengths. After all, those who are aware of their weaknesses know how to deal with them in the first place.

By acknowledging weak spots we know how to protect ourselves from the negative influences that try to attack us from our most sensitive or immature spots.

However, before learning and understanding the weak and immature sides of ourselves, we need to abandon ignorance and accept lessons and anything related to the significance of a weak planet in the heavenly host at the time of our birth.

Those who also take proper action and use this wisdom about weaknesses correctly to avoid deep insecurities from taking over the soul are indeed blessed and protected.

It is often said that the one who learns is smarter than the one who never learns. Herein a fallen planet gives a lot of opportunities to learn and rise above all issues and insecurities.

After all, planets and stars are not our guides and rulers, but merely indicators of energies that could influence us in certain ways.

When looked at from a deeper perspective, we humans all carry the energies of Aries Saturn. Namely, Aries signifies birth (new beginnings) while Saturn denotes responsibilities, karma, and hard work.

Hence, it shows that if a new person is born, they have some karma to fulfill in this life which involves hard work and gradual expansion of effort. It also means that we all are sinners and were born here to correct our mistakes through various hardships.

When a person has Saturn in Aries, these effects become more prominent throughout life. It means that Aries Saturn natives have more duties than the average person.

It can be a positive and a negative thing depending on how to look at it. Having more responsibilities can be exhausting, but it offers more opportunities to evolve on a soul level and fulfill duties quicker than the average person which will lead to salvation.

Give More Respect To Preceptors

The foremost important step to overcome the negatives of this combination is to practice honoring elders and preceptors.

The reason this matter is emphasized is because of the damaged 4th disposition which signifies sacred traditions and the learning process.

With fallen Saturn, there is the tendency to be uninterested or have no passion for such topics. However, having no educated heart many mistakes can happen which may not help to break free from other negativities this combination indicates.

It is one of the most important religious (4th disposition) commands to honor elders, teachers, and old spiritual guides because they are experienced and know what they speak.

Not only that but elders and preceptors are who shaped the ground for us to prosper. Hence, it is completely self-explanatory why we need to follow ethical principles and holy commands to perform all actions correctly. Failure to do so will lead to great troubles with ancestors, especially if Saturn is in the star of Ketu, which is Aswini. These troubles are often intangible and thus very hard to understand making the mess many times harder to untangle in mind and surroundings.


In Saravali it is stated that these individuals suffer due to overly high loads of work and responsibilities.

This effect is reflected by weakened Saturn, which is the planet of hard work and responsibility as it governs the 10th zodiac sign. The latter denotes duties, responsibilities, and action.

Now that this planet is exhausted in the sign of its fall, it indicates being hesitant, mentally drained, and frightened due to various things which cause procrastination. This, in turn, leads to the accumulation of work that must be fulfilled sooner or later.

It means that if small tasks are delayed due to a lack of discipline or hesitation, they are harder to cope with later.

As Aries is the 1st zodiac sign which relates to the mentality, fallen Saturn shows great confusion in the head which makes it hard to pick a direction leading to increased hardships regarding duties.

Speaking of which, this combination also involves a damaged 4th disposition which signifies interference of thinking patterns by negativity or hesitation.

In a slightly positive light, it also shows that their mind develops too many ideas (Aries) which makes it hard to arrange a proper course of action. Increased ideas temporary loss of momentum caused by the difficulty to pick ideas and act upon them.

To turn this negative effect around, it is important to improve self-discipline and practice mindfulness.

Some of The Last Words of God via The Last Prophet [PBUH]

This will help to get duties and responsibilities done at the right time. Not only that it will help to break free from the overload of work, but also helps to organize thoughts more effectively.

If the debilitation of Aries Saturn gets canceled, then the overload of thoughts, ideas, information, and learning can be a great boon. It reveals their ability to learn for a prolonged time, handed massive amounts of information, and apply each of them in the correct places.

Even though the action of harnessing loads of information is delayed, it proves to be very effective and rewarding for both society and themselves.


Saturn is also the planet of social order, law, structure, and conformity. Because of that, Saturn also signifies masses of people, civilizations, and unity which is attained through social rules and regulations.

Hence, the debilitation of Saturn indicates a tendency to challenge or oppose social rules and regulations. There can be various reasons how this manifests depending on the position of Mars, the guide of Aries Saturn.

One instance shows that these individuals may become overwhelmed when dealing with structures, laws, and regulations which leads to ideas that can bring conflict with current social rules.

As a result of this inner exhaustion caused by the inability to conform to social rules, they are inclined to become nonconformists or march against social trends.

Another instance simply shows being loose, irresponsible, and having the desire to be antagonistic toward laws and social order.

In addition to that, the 4th disposition signifies homeland and domestic happiness. The 4th house represented by this disposition is linked to the 7th house of social rules because the 4th from the 4th house is the 7th house itself.

Hence, the negatively manifested 4th house energies by Saturn also indicate troubles in the homeland or specific ethnic group due to not giving much respect or importance to social rules, regulations, and norms.

As a result, these natives face struggles in moving forward in life because the surroundings tend to turn against them. Additionally, they may miss a lot of great chances because of their hesitant and resistant character which are being helped back by traditions and society (Libra).

If Mars, the guide of Saturn is also undignified or fallen, it causes them to take extreme measures in order to achieve their own ideas and satisfy personal needs. By extreme measures, it is meant breaking the law, taboos, and deceiving the social traditions of the home country (4th disposition) caused by resentment towards what is good.

However, if Mars is dignified and the cancellation of the debilitation of Saturn occurs, this trait carries surprising benefits.

Namely, their tendency to oppose social standards can help them to create new and innovative ones. This is possible when Mars, the planet of innovation, initiation, and new movements is strong and dignified.

This also reflects why the weakness of Saturn can bring significant benefits. It helps them to break the old and ineffective standards or rules in order to create new ones.

With the help of a dignified Mars, which cancels the debilitation, they are able to assert themselves and establish new movements, trends, and standards for everyone.

Most importantly, a dignified Mars improves undignified Saturn which reflects that these natives have the potential to overcome weaknesses and become dignified over time.

Avoid Taboo Breaking

Because of the fact that the 4th house belongs to the triangle of salvation, it carries spiritual energies and therefore represents sacred traditions of homeland, culture, or specific society.

Hence, their willingness to go against society motivates them to break various taboos the effect of which is the manifestation of the negatively formed 4th disposition by Saturn in Aries.

Aries is the 1st sign which represents righteousness, in which fallen Saturn indicates they can or are at some point tempted to indulge in sinful, unethical, and immoral acts.

This is probably caused by hatred or resentment towards those who are righteous or well established, as mentioned in the classical source Saravali.

The taboos or norms they break are largely dependent on the situation and societal norms. Taboos are often linked to cultural heritage and traditions which makes them different in various parts of the world.

When they receive bitter feedback from society, it increases their inclination to oppose societal norms. So, some of them may attempt to deliberately indulge in various taboo-breaking activities to realize they are hurting themselves more than others.

With that bitterness towards cultural norms, they realize later that breaking taboo is not only bad for society, but for themselves (character, health, soul purity) as well. However, better late than never.

To avoid negative effects from manifesting or to transform them into positive ones, it is important to become aware of the long-term effects that taboo-breaking causes.

Even a small sin can initiate a chain of events that can lead to large-scale issues. When this happens, it is very difficult to escape from the outcomes because sooner or later Aries Saturn natives can feel how painful it is to cope with negative outcomes from bad decisions.

Hence, regaining discipline is the first step to overcoming unethical behavior and acts caused by it. Herein mental discipline is most important because it helps to evade loos character and become more responsible. This is important to fix all mistakes as soon as possible to avoid them accumulating into a large chain of issues.

Saravali states that Aries Saturn natives suffer from addictions. This shows that they are merely victims of their environment and bad thoughts.

In other words, it is likely that these natives never wanted to oppose traditional virtues, but are simply victims of addictions and negative thinking patterns as the damaged 4th disposition suggests.

To break free from negative patterns and habits, it is important to deal with addictions and heal the mind with various tactics related to a healthy lifestyle. Practicing mindfulness and concentrating on peace of mind helps to overcome self-destructive thoughts.

Furthermore, if Mars is dignified and cancels the debilitation of Saturn, it improves the condition to a great extent. That is because Mars is the primary planet of righteousness and if it is dignified, it motivates these natives to respect everything that is sacred, ethical, and moral.

A strong Mars also improves their mentality and makes them realize that specific norms are required in order to maintain the cultural purity and functioning of society.

Alternatively, a Saturn with canceled debilitation indicates abilities to break regulations or loose (new age) trends that are harmful to the evolution of society and disrespectful towards preceptors.

However, while changing non-efficient norms they respect and preserve good-natured and sacred traditions that maintain and heighten the morale of society.

Odd Sheep In The Herd

The idiom “odd sheep in the herd” is used to describe someone who is odd or disreputable in a specific group, society, or family.

Speaking of which, nonconformists with this combination of Saturn in Aries are likely to achieve that status in a specific group.

As the 4th disposition also signifies domestic happiness, mother, and nurture, this combination indicates that these individuals indulge in arguments regularly which are caused by conflicting ideologies and affect the domestic environment or relationship with the mother negatively, at times.

The 4th disposition formed by Saturn also signifies mental peace and thinking patterns. Hence, the fall of Saturn and this odd status also cause great mental discomfort. Nobody likes being treated like an odd link in the system.

While they are often treated so, they develop a certain amount of bitterness in their minds which reflects in their detached behavior. Their thinking patterns become negative as they always expect opposition and ill-treatment from others.

Because of high demands and bad status given by others, they tend to suffer from stress, anxiety, and depression often. As a result of this, they tend to become emotionally distant from the members of their group or society.

In other words, this combination makes them emotionally dependent on the opinions and criticism of the members of their society. They become mentally confused when being confronted by others as they are emotionally very sensitive.

However, if Mars is dignified and cancels the debilitation of Saturn, it indicates that these natives have a lot of inner strength, willpower, and confidence which makes them immune to external influence from society.

In other words, what others think about their odd preferences and behavior does not affect their mental peace adversely. Instead, they are very proud of being different than others.

A strong Mars indicates that they are loyal to their own decisions regardless of the opinions of people from their society or a specific group.

With amplified confidence and courage provided by strong Mars, these natives are willing to take the challenge to be different and not fit into a specific group, if they dislike the social values.

As a result of this courage to repel the demands of others, their anxiety is relieved and mental peace restored.

More importantly, their ability to remain loyal to their own decisions makes them able to succumb to the herd mentality and become unique individuals who are able to stand out from the crowd and shine brilliantly, if Mars supports so.

Avoid Envy & Fear Of Missing Out

The tendency to cause destruction to allies and relatives is included in the classical source Yavan Jataka.

To add more, in Saravali it is stated that Aries Saturn natives develop hatred for relatives, are tempted to perform bad acts, and are generally inimical towards their own people.

When looking into the energies of this combination, it is likely caused by envy or fear of losing out while lacking courage or vitality (Aries) to compete.

No matter how this effect can culminate in life, it is not that these people are inherently bad. This combination rather indicates their deep insecurity related to fear of missing out caused by a lack of drive, purpose, and ability to compete.

As a result, they always feel that others are living better lives and having better experiences. This actually reveals their deep covetousness which is the prime degrading factor to self-esteem.

Because of covetousness, they are tempted to hinder the progress of their close ones. It is important to acknowledge the weakness indicated by this planetary combination to overcome it as soon as possible.

That is because causing destruction to close ones will lead only to greater trouble and lost opportunities. Not to mention, it causes losing great supporters and well-wishers.

There is no need to attempt to hinder righteous people. After all, righteousness will always prevail and nothing stops it because it is guarded by the sword and truth of God.

As planets are merely indicators of energies and not our rulers but almighty God, it is definitely possible to overcome this negative effect.

Speaking of which, involving more with religion is what teaches morality, ethics, and righteousness. Righteousness, in turn, makes the demons in heads flee far away which wipes away all sense of covetousness.

By becoming righteous, these natives attain great support from God, our creator. This helps them to get over fears, restore self-esteem, and experience abundant blessings in life.

Improve Leading Skills

Aries is the 1st zodiac sign which is all about ambition, willpower, initiation, and the ability to take action. This is also the reason why Mars, the planet of leaders is the ruler of this sign.

With a fallen Saturn, the natural abilities of Aries get weakened. Hence, individuals with this combination lack determination and clarity which reflects the confusion in the mind.

The confusion, in turn, indicates an inability to take action and initiate things to propel forward. In other words, weak Saturn in Aries decreases leadership abilities.

What makes matters worse is their tendency to go against social norms and traditions which lowers their morale and repels cooperation with the members of society.

In addition to that, their envy can cause negative intentions that could lead them and their allies/subordinates astray.

Because of lowered morality and unethical tendencies, they have no uplifting spirit and are less trusted by society.

In addition to that, the 3rd disposition signifies various skills. Hence, when looking into the current combination, it indicates a lack of key traits of a skilled leader, unless a strong Mars (or cancellation of debilitation) supports it.

The 3rd disposition also signifies communication, which makes it a major leadership skill that individuals with fallen Saturn in Aries should improve. When they are confused in the first place, they are not able to give directions clearly to others as well.

Additionally, the negatively formed 3rd disposition reflects their doubtful, cold, rude, or apathetic way of communicating with others.

In other words, they transfer information in a way that lacks determination, clarity, or direction which does not motivate or convince others much. Without knowing the purpose or certain motives, people are not willing to take action.

To avoid this negative effect from hindering success in life, it is crucial to concentrate on the development of communication skills.

The first step towards overcoming this weakness is to increase morale by carefully considering the long-term effects of words. In fact, the 3rd house is tightly linked with the 8th house of sudden events and destruction which shows that words can bring great calamities.

Therefore, improve responsibility and filter out as many negative words as possible. Doing this will not only improve cooperation with allies (or teammates and subordinates) but also help to exist peacefully in an environment where calamities are less likely to occur.

After having considered how words can change the environment, it is easier to express oneself clearly and assertively which will set all teammates into unstoppable motion and cooperation. Who does not want to live in a place full of order and blissful energies?

To further improve, integrate higher values and ethics into words that will give unlimited power to allies, teammates, and subordinates.

It is important to repel fear, take heart, and know that helping others is to help oneself. Doing good will return to us tenfold in an amount just as bad deeds do. By uplifting the morale of our environment we attract abundant support and build a beautiful place to live in.

If Mars is dignified or cancels the debilitation of Saturn, it further helps to naturally improve this combination. Mars is the planet of determination, persistence, and action and when it is strong, it definitely makes these individuals more assertive and initiative.

When they have clarity and specific direction in their mind given by strong Mars, they are also able to uplift and motivate others around them. With that being said, a strong Mars also increases their confidence and ensures that their words are expressed without hesitation or delay.

With Saturn in Aries while Mars is strong it indicates that great leadership skills arise from initial weaknesses and learning from bad experiences. By learning from past mistakes they are able to develop their skills to successfully bring new movements into society by replacing old habits with new ones.

While doing that, they maintain righteous principles and have good intentions in mind. Good intentions are felt by the members of their society which makes them inclined to follow the innovative principles of individuals with this set of combinations.

Improve Communication

A negatively manifested 3rd disposition which signifies communication, both written and verbal, influences their way of interacting with others a lot.

The positioning of a natural malefic Saturn in the sign of fall while forming this disposition reflects that they express themselves often in an unpleasant, stingy, rude, or disharmonious manner.

An undignified planet of masses and civilization Saturn indicates treating others in a rude, uncompassionate, or unfair manner.

That is because their thinking patterns are affected negatively (4th disposition) which means that their ideas or worldviews are not always righteous, fair, or adequate. It does not always mean that they have bad intentions, but simply lack understanding, respect (loose character), and compassion.

Negatively manifested 3rd disposition also indicates that the information they transfer to others may not always be reliant or based on righteous principles.

Hence, when they express their ideas through words or publications, it creates a certain amount of confusion or unpleasant feelings in others.

By demotivating others from fear of loss or envy we downgrade our souls and cause a tremendous amount of negative enmity which is impossible to cope with lowered support from the almighty.

This is a direct result of Aries Saturn natives showing a lack of compassion, tact, or thoughtfulness. They might accidentally say something that intimidates others by leaving deep moral scars for a long time. Sometimes this is not intentional, but sometimes it is.

For instance, they might think that most people do not deserve to be happy, rich, or successful, and when they transfer that idea to a specific group of people, it certainly creates controversy and disharmony.

Therefore, this combination also indicates weak judgment which is not based on fair principles and is, therefore, the root cause of disharmony with their own people.

Alternatively, it simply attracts people with the same (unjust) mentality which makes it hard for them to cohabit later. What we reap is what we sow.

As Saturn is a natural malefic planet, it produces a harsh or strict style of communicating with others. The fact that it is fallen adds a rude, jealous, and wicked intonation to this already strict communication style through which they transfer their ideas or messages which others find deeply intimidating.

Because of the cancellation of debilitation, it is likely that these individuals are not actually cold, rude, cruel, or relentless but rather lack tactful thinking because of being often blamed by others for their unconventional way of acting, which is not bad in the first place.

When they receive domestic displeasure by constant negative comments/rumors about themselves, they are in danger of developing a very rude and uncompassionate style of communication.

What intensifies this effect is the fact that Saturn in Aries (head, mentality) causes confusion and overthinking which leads to unnecessary protectiveness.

However, if Mars, the guide of Saturn is dignified and the debilitation is canceled, it indicates that the strict way of communicating benefits them.

Mars, the planet of confidence and courage enhances their communication skills a lot and ensures that their message is heard clearly. With that being said, a strong Mars also gives them the ability to be assertive.

Most importantly, a dignified planet of righteousness and protection Mars realigns the mentality positively to ensure that the actions are based on fair and socially acceptable ideologies.

The improved thinking patterns can be also felt through their way of communicating with others, which radiates justice, equity, righteousness, and social tolerance.

Mars as the planet of action also enables them to learn from every mistake they make through their communication. By doing that they learn and evolve gradually which enables them to master the art of communication eventually. In fact, hardships are the biggest teachers that help to grow skills gradually.

Very Talkative

In Saravali it is mentioned that Aries Saturn natives are also very talkative. It is likely because they have tons of different ideas running in whirlwinds or even different directions in their minds.

As a result, they always have various topics to discuss endlessly. They also tend to jump from one topic to another suddenly.

By default, the fallen Saturn indicates that the change of direction may not always be effective or fruitful. In other words, they begin a new topic before concluding the first one leading to confusion.

This kind of talk can be entertaining but in the wrong circumstance is just a waste of time leading to procrastination and delays.

Also, as mentioned before, the uncompassionate style of communication can cause making unnecessary remarks in between of important talks and activities which may delay progress.

To avoid negative effects from manifesting and harnessing this special talent fruitfully, it is important to respect elders, respect social norms, and practice compassion. Most importantly, avoid talking about harmful matters that are detrimental to productivity and can hurt others.

However, talkativeness can be a very powerful trait when the direction is found. Hence, the sooner they find a fruitful direction and concentrate on specific topics, the sooner they will enjoy the fruits of success regarding their communication talents.

By mentionind the talent to talk a lot, I mean it seriously. These individuals have the ability to be unstoppable chatterboxes and because of a tendency to develop many ideas, the topics are also endless.

Avoid Bad Company

The 3rd disposition formed by Aries Saturn from its own sign Aquarius signifies a local network with whom the actual information sharing is conducted.

With a negatively formed 3rd disposition by fallen Saturn, it is indicated that these individuals might get involved in bad companies.

That is because of a thoughtless or distorted understanding of truth. Namely, they are prone to mistake their friend for their enemy.

That is, they oft tend to rely on beautiful but false words rather than a harsh truth. As a result, they may unintentionally befriend their foes who appear very friendly and sweet at first and ignore those who are strict and disciplined.

To avoid this negative effect from manifesting, it is advised to take a lot of time before deciding and closely monitor the actions instead of relying on (sweet) words.

Improve Discipline

The 3rd disposition represents the 3rd astrological house which belongs to the triangle of desires and signifies ambition, courage, skills, and efforts.

As it is manifested inauspiciously by weak Saturn, it indicates a lack of ambition which reflects decreased motivation to put in hard work and self-made efforts.

What increases this effect is the fact that Saturn is the planet of hard work and when it is weak, it reflects disliking working hard.

Ironically, the fact that they often refuse to discipline themselves to work hard attracts more responsibilities in their lives. If they refuse to put in hard work in the first place, they miss many opportunities to achieve the freedom they deserve.

In addition to that, when delaying fulfilling personal karmic duties, the responsibilities grow over time which forces us to work much harder to fulfill them.

However, if Mars is dignified it helps to relieve this effect by making them determined, persistent, and disciplined. A strong Mars, the planet of ambition, drive, courage, and action motivates them to take action to become prosperous and achieve the freedom they truly desire.

It is still important to note that Saturn is a very cautious and conservative planet that dislikes taking risks and prefers small carefully calculated steps instead.

It reflects that even though their steps are small and progress slow, they still have the potential to achieve a lot. Oftentimes, small but carefully calculated steps are more effective and increase the likelihood of succeeding by minimizing as many risks as possible.

A strong Mars helps to seize opportunities, make effort, and put skills into action. Big things start from small steps and slow progress is always better than no progress. In fact, slow and steady tend to win the race as well.

Find Purpose To Increase Drive

When asked what are the aims of action of these natives, it is often heard Aries Saturn natives telling that they don’t have any specific purpose for what they are doing. They claim just doing it without any certain direction.

It is because Aries signifies everything new, which equally carries the secondary meaning of having a purpose to initiate something, be it a project, creating children, etc.

However, as Saturn falls in this sign, it indicates being confused about which direction to take in life.

It is difficult for them to find willpower, drive, ambition, and motivation because lacking direction and point of focus. As a result, they start wandering aimlessly to just see what happens or where life takes them.

With that being said, they often struggle to find the meaning of everything, which makes them inclined to quit on others and their obligations easily. They may betray their friends and family members for their benefit without considering the consequences of possible moral damage.

However, if Mars is dignified and cancels the debilitation, it helps to find direction in life. That is because Mars is the planet of focus, discipline, ambition, and persistence. If it is strong, these natives do not lack these natural traits of Mars.

Mars is the most adventurous planet and can complement the energies of Aries Saturn a lot. Namely, a dignified Mars gives more energy and motivation to wander and take on many interesting adventures that enrich their life with beautiful moments to remember.

With a dignified Mars, their adventures are well planned, coordinated, and meaningful rather than purposeless.

In addition to that, Mars is also the planet of intuition and if it is strong and dignified, it endows these natives with lots of intuition and hidden wisdom which guides them while they wander to help find a specific direction in life. That is to say, adventures help them to find a higher purpose and motivation in life.

Avoid Being Potty-Mouthed & Hypocritical

The 3rd disposition represents the 3rd astrological domain which is the powerhouse of the 8th house. In other words, the 8th from the 8th house is the 3rd house itself.

As the 3rd disposition is negatively manifested by Saturn in Aries, the 8th house energies are also negatively used. Accordingly, individuals with this combination tend to be secretive, jealous, and slightly manipulative.

They also tend to lose control of what they say. Having lots of thoughts whirling in their minds, they express their words irresponsibly which can hurt others emotionally.

If individuals with Saturn in Aries are in authoritative positions, they may have bad relations with their teammates and/or subordinates because of their irresponsible and careless behavior.

As the 3rd originally signifies communication and expression of words, the fall of harsh planet Saturn in cruel Aries indicates the usage of bad words which radiate hostility and dullness. Alternatively, it also indicates that they are mean and thus tend to treat others unfairly or unobjectively.

That is to say, oftentimes their judgment or actions are based on personal feelings, tastes, and biased opinions instead of objective and adequate reasons.

With that being said, jealousy can also alter their behavior greatly by motivating them to use secretive or manipulative tactics on others for selfish purposes.

Their secretive tactics involve creating conspiracies or talking behind the back of others unobjectively or in other words because of personal interests or envy.

In classical source, Saravali is mentioned that Aries Saturn natives have a habit of covering their fraudulent deeds with hypocritical tactics. In other words, if they mess up, they are tempted to flee from taking responsibility and find tons of false excuses to avoid confronting issues.

It is highly likely that they do not want others to suffer because of their deeds, but simply lack the courage (Aries) to confront issues at the right time and places.

In addition to that, they are quick to judge others for their faults while breaking rules or taboos themselves. This effect of hypocrisy is caused by weakened 3rd and 8th house energies.

This hypocritical behavior causes an accumulation of negative karma which strikes suddenly and manifests in the form of ill-treatment by others. This kind of suffering is a blessing in disguise as it helps to exhaust negative karma and become free of it by learning from earlier mistakes.

With that being said, if Mars is dignified and cancels the debilitation of Saturn, these individuals are able to learn from their mistakes and become extremely wise and mature.

A dignified Mars, the planet of action and righteousness has the capacity to guide weak Saturn out of trouble by holding these natives from becoming deceptive, envious, and hypocritical. It also prevents them from committing unethical acts towards others as their actions are guided by dignified Mars.

Alternatively, it indicates that they are able to convert their hypocritical tendencies to cunning strategies and use them against sinners or those who unethically oppose them.

They also benefit from using very cold, cure, and frightening words in order to make their opponents back down. With that being said, the cancellation of debilitation shows that they would not use their hard tactics on close ones and innocent people.

If the debilitation of Saturn is canceled and Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga is formed in addition to that, it converts all the negative effects mentioned above into strengths that produce immense auspicious results.

One of many instances that causes cancellation of debilitation is when Mars (the guide of Aries Saturn) is in Gemini where it aspects Saturn. This rule fulfills the cancellation of debilitation requirement and indicates that the native is able to tactfully learn from their mistakes to become a better version of themselves through adversities.

The “cancellation of debilitation” condition forces natives with Saturn in Aries to experience difficult situations that make them grow, evolve, and help to develop characteristics that are helpful in leadership in particular, as Aries is the sign of leaders.

As a result of this condition, the negative traits mentioned in this article are converted into positive ones, which confer various auspicious outcomes, which can be stronger when compared to Saturn in its own sign.

Neecha Bhanga Raj Yoga Saturn indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) exceptionally great leadership abilities and courage to restore and maintain law, justice, and order in society by any means. With that being said, these natives can be very cruel and harsh, but righteous. The considered special combination indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) power, authority, and fame.

There is a prominent positive side of Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga Saturn. Namely, people with this placement become very systematic and well-organized after experiencing many difficulties.

Even though they are slow to take action and unable to initiate projects quickly, they are definitely capable of completing them with the touch of perfection. They pursue the value of the creation, rather than quantity.

Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga Saturn also provides them with the energies to become competent leaders. They perform exceptionally well in areas where their rigid and stagnant nature is highly appreciated.

Their amplified durability also gives them the capability to withstand a lot of pressure, both mental and physical. However, the basic characteristics arising from the fallen Saturn prompt them to use mean and secretive tactics in order to attain success.

Alternatively, If Mars (guide of Saturn) is strong, it indicates that their mean tactics are motivated by good intentions to promote societal wellbeing. With the support of other strong planets, they will use their strengths positively by following morals.

That is, these natives are able to successfully replace the old and classical in order to start and begin something new and unique, which indicates initial trouble, hardship, and breaking of cultural traditions, but which gives success later.

  • I have Saturn in Aries in 1st House and ascendant lord Mars in Cancer in 4th house. Both debilitated and going through Saturn dasha right now. What would you say about this?

    • Hello Ashley, thank you for sharing your positions. Without looking at a holistic chart, I would say that it gives mixed results. That is to say. some good results after lots of struggle. Long story short, you are able to use the natural traits of Aries Saturn and Cancer Mars for your benefit after learning from your own mistakes and the ones of other people.

      The struggles are mostly on domestic front and related to your homecountry while it influences our own attitude, mentality, and self-realiation. You may also experience fluctuation in fortunes because of fallen Mars. In addition to that, you may earn fortune through other people or very unusual methods in your homeland.

      Usually, when the dispositor is also fallen, the bad effects from debilitation are amplified unless Mars receives the cancellation of debilitation and/or is saved by Moon. If Saturn and/or Mars receive cancellation of debilitation, there are massively great outcomes out of struggles. I know a famous person who dropped out of school during Aries Saturn period and after that started his own venture which is making a great fortune for him today. His Mars is in Aries which cancels the debilitation of Saturn and therefore converts initial struggles into enormously great outcomes.

      • Thank you so much for your reply. Is there any way I could contact you maybe via email, so you could look at my holistic chart?

        • Thank you for this post. I hv Saturn in Aries and Mars in Aries 8th house. This is exactly as you say. I have my own business and I’ve experienced many challenges in life but learned from them. I always thought my evolution came from Pluto on my Ascendant and perhaps it is a combination. I consider myself lucky to have this yog. Right now I’m experiencing delays in buying a house and a car. I guess it’s Uber and rent till I die.

          • Thank you for sharing your feedback, Charisse!

            It is a great cancellation of debilitation and an ideal recipe for sudden success after super hard labor. The stars are supporting you, keep moving forward!

            You can feel how a strong Mars helps to clear doubts in your mind by helping you fulfill all the tasks one by one and untangle the mess.

            Mr.Beast, a popular modern age entertainer has this set of combinations (Mars & Saturn in Aries) and prospered suddenly during the planetary period of Aries Saturn after initial failures/struggles.

  • I have saturn(16 degree) in 3rd house with jupiter(1 degree) in aries AND its lord mars(27 degree) in 1st house with mercury(1 degree) of Aquarius ascedent. Is it neech bhanga or how is this combination ?

    • Hello Bhupesh!

      Thank you for sharing your details. According to the details you shared, it does not qualify for the cancellation of the fall. However, there is a possibility that it might occur when taking Moon as the reference point.

  • I have saturn in aries(2nd house) 18 degrees and mars in capricorn (11 th house) 3 degrees is it a neechbhanga?

  • Hi Martin, thanks for much sought article on debilitated Saturn…. Please clarify following..
    1) I have debilitated retrograde Saturn in 2 house aries being pisces ascendant…. Sagittarius zodiac…. Mars is placed in saggitarius, which is Kendra from lagna and moon both… Also lord of exaltation sign sun is also in Kendra from lagna and moon both… also lord of exaltation sign is Venus which is also placed in kendras…. Hence i presume Saturn debilitation is cancelled and there is a neejbang raja yoga… Please confirm
    2) if so, what benefit can i expect and when… Currently going rahu mahadasha Jupiter antardasha till April 2022 after that Saturn Antardasha….
    3) my Jupiter is combust in 7 house

    Thanks a lot

  • Hi I have my saturn in aries (in 7th house) and mars in taurus (in 8th house) and my mars is also in conjunction with moon so does this become neech bhang raaj yoga as it comes in the 1st house from the moon?

      • I’m confused with this placement of the moon creating the neech Bhangra raaj yoga for Taurus Mars. I also have both Taurus Mars (4H) and Aries Saturn (3H) with Mercury conjuncting Mars. My Saturn return is going to painful 😣

        • Hello Ella

          Thank you for writing. For determining the Yoga and cancellation, you will have to analyze the ruler of Aries which is Mars. Also, please make sure that you analyze sidereal positions. The effects of planets manifest in their major periods in addition to transits.

          Best wishes

    • Hello Sir

      Feedback like this makes me feel tremendously blessed as I truly aim to bring positive influence with these writings. Thank you very much for your thoughtful words and I will definitely keep your invitation in mind.

      Best wishes & God bless

  • In your article, you said Neech Bhang Raj Yoga occurs when Mars is in Gemini, how so? Gemini is not a great placenent for both Mars and Saturn. Also, Mars does not have 11th house aspect. Did you mean to say Mars in Libra, in which case there would be a Parivartan yoga and debilitation would be cancelled. I am Gemini ascendant and I have Saturn in Aries and Mars in Libra.

    • Hello Jack

      Yes, Mars in Libra cancels the effects of fall. More specifically, Mars helps to transform initial weaknesses and bad experiences into strentgh and wisdom.

      With Mars in Gemini I meant that Saturn aspects it. Better is the situation when the exaltation lord of Saturn which is Venus is in Kendra from Mars. Both Mars and Venus should also be in good navamsha for more effective cancellation.

  • Great work, given information is extremely accurate. True knowledge is power given to transform yourself and others for the better.
    Do You have Your mercury in virgo?

    • Hello Azeya

      Thank you so much for your valuable feedback and humble comments. Regarding your quote about knowledge, it is brilliant! I could not have said it better myself!

      I have Mercury in Taurus (guided by Gemini Venus), you can check the articles about it to get an idea about my communication manners and analytical tactics.

      Best wishes

      • Hello Sir,
        I Am Pisces Ascendant , My Saturn is deliberated In Aries , and My Mars in Virgo Sign in 7th house.
        Please Tell, Bit of details for this..

        • Hello Mam. Cancellation occurs via Kendra Mars. In practical life, the diminishing or overcoming of negative effects happens via the effects of Virgo Mars with the intonation of the effects described for Mercury.
