Last updated on January 27th, 2022 at 11:19 pm

Saturn in the 8th house unites with the energies of Mars-ruled Scorpio. As the 8th zodiac sign, Scorpio naturally represents the 8th house and therefore shares common energies with it.

More on 8th house

The condition and dignity of the 8th house ruler carry a major role in determining additional outcomes of this combination in question.

That is because the 8th ruler becomes a guide to Saturn in this house. Hence, a strong and dignified 8th ruler extends the auspicious effects of a dignified Saturn. Alternatively, it is capable of saving weakened or undignified Saturn from giving entirely negative outcomes.

The majority of the results of this combination are determined by the dignity of Saturn in this house.

Results of Saturn in 8th House

Spiritually Intensive Experiences

To begin with, Saturn itself is the natural significator of the 8th house. Therefore, the positioning of this planet in the 8th house amplifies its significance.

As a result, the native experiences double the effects of Saturn and the 8th house, such as sudden events, transformation, darkness, hidden senses, unseen energies, etc.

With that being said, the 8th house is a natural malefic house in which Saturn ignites a lot of intense experiences throughout life.

However, when Saturn is strong and dignified, there are positive outcomes extracted from the difficult energies of the 8th house.

A lot of mysterious, difficult, frightening, and painful periods in life that are triggered suddenly is one major effect created by Saturn in the 8th house.

These natives are prompted to undergo a lot of intense periods where their resistance and strength are highly tested. These periods can be extremely difficult to handle but also highly beneficial.

That is because during these key periods these natives learn how to handle the deepest struggles of life. This positive outcome is promised if Saturn is in its own sign or exalted in the 8th house.

Extremely Strong & Fearless

However, if Saturn is strong and dignified, it indicates that these intensive and difficult periods benefit the natives as such events make them stronger and temper their mental and physical strength.

The reason why such outcomes can be produced is that the 8th house is the natural home for Mars-ruled Scorpio. Mars, in turn, is the planet of physical strength, motivation, courage, and drive.

Saturn as the ruler of the 10th zodiac sign Capricorn signifies discipline and unshakable determination. As the ruler of the 11th zodiac sign Aquarius, Saturn signifies physical endurance and discipline to fulfill aspirations.

What is more, the natural malefic planet, such as Saturn, functions efficiently in malefic houses because of having the required strength and aggression to withstand the harsh environments the house offers.

When considering the fact that the 8th house requires courage and strength, Saturn seems to resonate with this house surprisingly well with its natural traits. However, for good outcomes and actual positive results, Saturn must be strong and dignified.

In other words, the condition of Saturn in this house also decides whether the native has enough physical strength and courage or not.

Accordingly, if Saturn is strong and well placed, it indicates that the native becomes endowed with abundant courage after facing all fears through sudden dramatic events and hurdles. In fact, the process of facing fears is also very painful and deeply frightening at first.

However, facing the deepest fears is what sets the soul free and creates a fearless person as a result. Not to mention, these events caused by hidden energies make these natives highly experienced and wise.

These hidden energies include the creation of false information or conspiracies by spiteful and envious enemies which also happens to be the major significator of the 8th astrological house.

The fears not only motivate the natives to become psychologically stronger but also physically. In fact, Mars, as the representative of the 8th house also signifies physical strength.

Accordingly, a strong Saturn in the 8th house also prompts the natives to train themselves to be physically durable and strong in order to defend themselves from various unseen threats and enemies.

On the contrary, if Saturn is weakened in the 8th house, it indicates being overwhelmed by too many sudden unfortunate events.

A weak Saturn fails to provide enough strength to cope with those difficult periods and therefore fails to deliver fearlessness.

Such a native also lacks physical strength which decreases their stamina and overall competitive capabilities.

Dominating & Enterprising

Saturn is a very domineering and authoritative planet because it governs the 10th zodiac sign, which signifies the same.

When this authoritative planet Saturn is dignified and merges its energies with the 8th house, which is represented by another enterprising planet Mars, the native inherits strong leadership capabilities.

The 3rd aspect ray (of courage) upon the 10th natal house also proves the fact that the native harnesses their courage provided by strong Saturn in their main activities and duties in life.

Another, 10th aspect ray of Saturn upon the 5th house of authority reflects that the native is capable of harnessing their discipline, durability, and willpower which makes them strong and resistant leaders.

If the 10th house ruler is also strong and well-placed, the native suddenly becomes tremendously powerful in society.

Highly Intuitive

In addition to that, their courage and leadership abilities are highly supported by a strong hidden sense provided by the spiritual planet Saturn in the spiritual 8th house.

In fact, Saturn is naturally the planet that signifies long-term experience and wisdom at its highest.

With the 8th house Saturn, the native inherits talents of sensing hidden energies and thus being able to dig deep into any topic.

As a result, these natives tend to be naturally very knowledgeable, especially in matters related to deep research, archaeology, history, occult, psychology, etc.

With these traits, they are also capable of sensing the hidden motives of others and protecting themselves by preparing properly.


These above-mentioned aspects rays also reflect abundant responsibilities the native has in their life. Saturn as the planet of karma connecting with the 10th house of karma increases their responsibilities.

Religious truth & wisdom to bless your life

Keep repenting and repeating secretly in mind: "God is enough for me and I bear witness that there is no other worthy of worship than the Almighty Creator alone" for the joy and abundance of God to flow in.

(Musnad Aḥmad 11237)

And God protects the faithul more than a caring Mother protects her child.
(Sahih al-Bukhari 5999)

Do not perform idolatry, impiety, disrespect for parents. Never endanger lives (saving one life is like saving whole humanity). Do not commit theft, adultery, false witness (disregard all cruel conspiracies towards innocent believers), and do not envy.

All people are practically beleivers if they believe in one God, The Prophets (some of them: Solomon, Moses, Jesus) and The Seal of Prophets (Muhammad) peace be upon them. That is, do not be quick to judge and leave judgment to God except when there is direct threat to righteous beleivers.

All people are practically beleivers if they believe in one God, The Prophets (some of them: Solomon, Moses, Jesus) and The Seal of Prophets (Muhammad) peace be upon them. That is, do not be quick to judge and leave judgment to God except when there is direct threat to righteous beleivers.

(Riyad as-Salihin 1808)

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

In fact, Saturn as being in the house of its significance amplifies the responsible nature of such individuals.

If Saturn is dignified, the native always gains blessings from fulfilling their responsibilities that are overwhelming from time to time.

The fulfillment of their duties is related to their business, career, or other main activity in life. Therefore the more actions they perform, the more they gain.

Alternatively, a weakened Saturn indicates that the native is irresponsible and easily willing to abandon their obligations which causes the accumulation of negative karma which has to be repaid later.

Sudden Improvements & unexpected help

The 10th and 11th signs, which are naturally ruled by Saturn, signify wealth and gains respectively.

At the same time, the 8th house signifies sudden unseen events. Therefore, a strong and well-paced Saturn in this house indicates sudden abundant gains of wealth. Note that the number 8th also stands for infinity or abundance.

Apart from wealth, the auspicious form of Saturn in the 8th house of salvation grants other more important benefits.

Namely, as this is a malefic house, these natives are subject to prolonged suffering as Saturn signifies increased longevity.

In a classical source Saravali, these natives are likely to fail in undertakings. This effect has multiple meanings depending on the dignity of Saturn.

If Saturn is dignified in the given house, it indicates increased suffering caused by evil and wicked opposition.

Herein suffering is not meant to punish the native, but to temper, both physical and mental strength to become strong enough to tackle increasing opposition for a prolonged time frame.

It also shows that the natives experience lots of delays and temporary setbacks from lost battles because of the massive opposition of wicked people.

However, when a battle is lost it does not mean that the final outcomes are inauspicious. In other words, in order to win a major war, many failures must be experienced to gain wisdom and temper the mind.

The 8th house signifies lots of disasters, but in a positive light also the ability to bounce back from setbacks caused by calamities, if Saturn is dignified or powerful in this house.

Coming back to major hidden blessings that combination has to offer, these natives receive divine help in perfect timing and unexpectedly. It is important to note that Saturn in its best shape signifies universal justice and strikes sudden results according to one’s deeds.

This helps arise so unexpectedly like a lightning strike in the sky bringing lots of massive help and improvements propelling these natives further into great prosperity after enduring lots of struggle caused by evil people (8th house).

As the 8th house represents unseen matters, the divine help is often very mystical and involves mysterious events that are unseen but felt by everyone which will clearly tell that it is not good to mess with righteous people for they are servants of one and only creator, almighty God, who always has their backs. God always restores what is lost in massive amounts.

Alternatively, an undignified or ill-placed Saturn in this house causes lots of disasters and sudden events that cause losses or great financial damage. This also increases severe suffering because of accumulated heavy karma due to bad deeds.

Strict & Strong Facial Attributes

Speaking of dominance and authority, the facial attributes given by 8th house Saturn enhance these.

To be specific, Saturn as a natural malefic strict planet influences the face of the native with its direct aspect ray upon the 2nd house of face and speech.

As a result of this influence, the face of the native inherits strict and serious mimics that fit perfectly with their domineering, strict, disciplined, and authoritative nature.

In addition to that, Saturn also influences the speech making it sound very harsh, cruel, deep, frightful, and serious.

While this kind of speech is not the most attractive it definitely benefits these natives by enhancing their authoritative character.

Increased Longevity

Saturn is considered to be the planet of longevity, just like the 8th astrological house. Accordingly, this combination in question indicates increased longevity.

The longevity is increased due to the protection a strong Saturn offers against incurable diseases in the 8th house. That effect is ensured at least throughout the planetary period of Saturn.

However, there is a downside to increased longevity as well. Namely, it is well known that life on earth is not always easy and enjoyable because of being presented trials to trials which is the major reason for birth.

As a result of this combination, individuals live longer which gives much more room for difficult trials and spiritually painful events.

Frightening Transformational Processes

While they overcome difficult periods, their transformational processes are triggered. In fact, the process is very deep equivalent to the pain they are prompted to experience.

The reason why spiritual energies are involved in this house is that the 8th house belongs to the triangle of salvation or Moksha Trikona. For salvation, spiritual awakening is required which is the function of this astrological house.

If Saturn is strong and dignified, the difficult periods are actually great blessings in disguise, which are very hard to notice at first.

Later, when hard times pass and results of perseverance and hard work are evident, these blessings are well acknowledged.

These difficult periods actually initiate the process of deep transformation which also leads to spiritual awakening. This, in turn, opens great opportunities to become united with the creator.

But first, our almighty God wants us to undergo difficulties that initiate our wish to seek him. It is well-known fact that hard times make strong people and easy times do the opposite.

A soul must experience darkness in order to see the beauty of the stars more clearly. Using the clear starlight, it is easier to find a path to salvation.

As a result of the transformation of the soul, the native becomes deeply enlightened and starts to see a lot of hidden miracles in life despite experiencing a lot of painful events in life.


Saturn as a natural malefic which aspects the 10th house of public fame, rank, and honor indicates that the native does not always shine with their sweetest traits.

That is to say, they are most known for their harsh, strict, straightforward, and unforgiving traits. It also proves that they are not active in the public sphere for selfish benefits or to amplify their own self.

What is more, the 8th house represents hidden matters in which Saturn indicates that the native is very secretive in nature which also strikes some fear to the public.

As the 8th house is a malefic one that signifies conspiracies and all such hidden matters, Saturn in this house indicates initial sufferings regarding these matters.

To be specific, the public image of such natives may be damaged due to secret conspiracies caused by the hidden enemies of the native.

However, if Saturn is dignified, it ensures that the native is of righteous and fair conduct, despite being very strict, demanding, and secretive at the same time.

In fact, the secretive nature enhances their success because other people rarely know what are the next steps of the native with this combination.

A dignified Saturn also indicates that all the karmic deeds or actions the native does secretly or apparently are motivated by good intentions. Sooner or later, these intentions come to the fore and others notice that.

As a result, the public rank and honor get highly increased and often unexpectedly despite initial struggles related to misunderstandings with the public due to false conspiracies.

What is more, both the 8th house and Saturn denote longevity, history, and tradition. Hence, when this combination is extremely well-formed that is, Saturn is well-placed, it reflects that the native and their radical yet good-intentioned actions are remembered for a very long time.

In other words, a strong Saturn in the 8th house is capable of making the native a legend. For such colossal effects, the 10th house ruler (of rank, honor, social rank) should be also well placed, strong, and dignified.

On the contrary, if Saturn is undignified in the given house, it indicates a very bad reputation due to various sinful deeds.

An undignified Saturn as the planet of karma indicates that the native is inclined towards very bad actions which also damage their social reputation to a great extent.

It also indicates that the native is involved with secret illegal organizations where they conduct their evil plans.

  • Dear Martin,
    I have been reading your posts for quite some time. I must say that I have never come across so deeply engaging, full of great insights and truly transformational. Your work shows the tremendous efforts taken by you in studying and analyzing the vedic astrology. Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for bringing out the scientific nature of this knowledge. Being mother of three children, I have always been very anxious and to certain extent, cynical concerning my upbringing; but with the help of your insights I’m certainly feeling empowered. I’m curious to know more about how the planetary effects unfold if a planet is in combust. I’m sure you’ll share your thoughts on this. Thank-you.

    • Hello Aastha

      It is great to see that my efforts help people like you to understand life from deeper perspective. When writing those articles, my intention is to help understand the energies revolving around us which can be interpreted with the help of the skies, a miraculous creation of our God.

      Thank you very much for noticing my efforts in trying to explain how the science of light works.

      I plan to add description of combustion in the future.

      Best wishes

  • Hello, I am a native 8th house Gemini Saturn. I can tell you that it took me many painful years too see these patterns, I think Saturn heavy people have to go through a lot of pain, and have too look very inwards to figure this out.
    Throughout my life I’ve had many a undeserved enemy, and many conspiracies.
    I have endured ( in the beginning)
    With a victim complex, later on with the knowledge that I would go through a lot of heartache and proven right or innocent, or good. I’m not sure what you’ve tapped into, but for me it’s incredibly insightful, and meaningful.
    Personally I’d like it to stop, but I suppose I’ve still many a lesson to learn.
    Thank you
