Last updated on June 24th, 2020 at 11:21 pm

Saturn in 1st house unites with the energies of Mars-ruled Aries. As the 1st zodiac sign, Aries naturally represents the 1st house and therefore shares common energies with it.

The condition and dignity of Sun and the 1st house ruler carry a major role in determining additional outcomes of this combination. Therefore, it is crucial for these planets to be strong and dignified to harness the energies of Saturn effectively and piously which ultimately ensures good outcomes.

Sun is linked to the 1st house because it signifies self, soul, body, head, mentality, vitality, health, general prosperity, and courage.

The 1st house ruler becomes a guide to Saturn. Therefore, a strong and dignified ascendant ruler is able to extend auspicious results of a dignified Saturn or save it from giving fully negative results, when ill-placed.

The majority of the results of this combination is dependent on the dignity and strength of Saturn.

Results of Saturn in 1st House

Strict & Highly Disciplined

Saturn is the planet that governs the 10th zodiac sign of order and structure, Capricorn. Hence, Saturn naturally carries these characteristics.

At the same time, the 1st house reflects the self, soul, and mentality of the native.

Accordingly, a dignified Saturn in the 1st house produces a highly disciplined person who is law obedient and expects the same from others.

They are also very strict, especially when fulfilling their tasks in a career or business. These natives are true conformists and this makes them very reliable especially in tasks that require loyalty and honesty.

Alternatively, if Saturn is undignified or weakened in the given house, it also reduces auspicious effects. Namely, a weakened Saturn loses direction and becomes lost.

This also influences a native with this negatively formed combination. As a result, they become undisciplined, lazy, and slow to take action. They have a hard time to initiate new projects and carry on open-ended tasks.

In other words, a weakened Saturn in ascendant makes individuals with this combination unreliable, dishonest, and undisciplined. They have a tendency to abandon responsibilities and wander away to get relief.

However, their abandoned repsonsibilities start to haunt the native in the future and reappear in a greatly amplified form.

Serious & Mature Mentality

In astrology, Saturn is the planet that signifies experienced or older people. Therefore, Saturn in the 1st house of mentality creates a person who is very mature.

If Saturn is dignified, it ensures that they are very responsible and take a serious approach to their obligations. They make sure that their tasks are fulfilled and obligations are taken care of.

People might perceive them as too strict, serious, and boring. However, in reality, this is a truly honorable trait that makes them trustworthy.

They are very deep thinkers and love to see life in a philosophical or sometimes even spiritual viewpoint.

In addition to that, cold, serious, and strict planet Saturn influences their general appearance as well. As a result, they have a rather frightful, harsh, and rigid appearance with dark shades. However, these traits benefit them because they are perceived or taken more seriously by others.

Alternatively, if Saturn is undignified in the 1st house, it creates a serious but very timid person. They have a hard time to manage ther tasks and obligations effectively.

Slow But Stable

Not only that their maturity influences their way of thinking, but also the way they act or function in life.

That is to say, they make all their steps in a stable and calculated way. With that being said, they are slow to act, but also highly cautious. This character trait ensures that the steps taken are effective and efficient.

This creates a very balanced and smart public image of them. They are slow to act and initiate, but very efficient at the same time. They are committed to creating long-lasting results with their persistent effort. Slow and steady wins the race is a perfect quote to describe their way of acting.

On the contrary, if Saturn is undignified, it loses its good characteristics. As a result, the native becomes clumsy and unorganized. This reduces their efficiency of action.

While they are tactless and low, they also lose their ability to calculate risks. This makes them prone to become lost in action and take bad decisions.

Authoritative & Controlling

Both Saturn and the 1st house is about authority and leadership. Hence, individuals with this combination are inherently authoritative and domineering.

Their way of domineering is rather strict, rude, and cold. They seem to be very heartless and cruel from the soul. However, this is how it looks. Their care and compassion are simply expressed through discipline and strict loyalty.

Their law obedient nature also makes them very controlling because they expect unshakable loyalty from others as well. Seeing that others conform to the rules and behave responsibly is what makes these natives truly satisfied.

If Saturn is strong and dignified in the 1st house or ascendant, it is capable of blessing the native with good fame and an authoritative position in society or community.

While they might not shine out of being jovial and generous, they are definitely recognized as trustworthy, reliable, and unshakable controllers/managers.

Prudent & Justice Loving

Saturn is the planet of karma. This means that it scales the good and bad deeds of the native and gives results accordingly. This strict planet makes sure that all bad deeds are punished and good deeds rewarded with blessings.

Because of being the cosmic ruler of karma and cause of action, Saturn gets exalted in Libra, the sign of justice and balance. This reflects that the native with a dignified Saturn is very justice-loving and prudent.

In fact, the 1st house belongs to the triangle of righteousness or Dharma Trikona in which the condition of Saturn determines how righteous the person generally is.

When they are righteous, their actions are always in harmony with social norms and regulations.

In addition to that, they always show a lot of care for the future by calculating steps ahead. That is to make sure that their actions are righteous and morally justified.

Alternatively, an undignified Saturn in ascendant makes a person greedy and wicked. Their loss of dignity and righteousness makes them take immoral steps and break the rules.

Their actions become unfair and damage social norms and regulations. What is more, their unfair behavior causes disharmony in the surroundings.

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.
(Surat al-Baqarah 2:163)

Whoever makes the Hereafter (aims for piety & righteousness to attain salvation) his/her goal, Allah (english: God) makes his/her heart rich, and organizes his/her affairs, and the world comes to him/her whether it wants to or not.
(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2465)

And God is the most merciful and loving. The God Almighty said: By My might and majesty, I will continue to forgive them, as long as they seek My forgiveness.
(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.
(Surat al-An’am 6:151-153)

The Messenger of God [PBUH] used to stress charity in his sermons, and prohibit mutilation. But protect truth and believers at all costs.
(Sunan an-Nasa'i 4047)

There must be no racism, sects, tribes, or gangs amongst you, and take special care of women, and increased rewards get those who educate women especially who suffer in calamities.
(The Last Sermon, Riyad as-Salihin 278)

Holy Prophet [PBUH] raised the status of and established legal rights for women which were never present before, and protected them from harassment, and stressed duty and good treatment to mother. Also, completely prohibited injustice towards girl-children (unjust people used to get rid of them for financial reasons).

(Sahih al-Bukhari 3446, Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 5, al-Baqarah 2:228)

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.

I heard Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying while pointing his hands towards the east: The turmoil would appear from this side; verily, the turmoil would appear from this side (he repeated it thrice)(Sahih Muslim 2905e).

Muhammad [PBUH] was most akin to Jesus [PBUH], who is coming back, and the best of people will be under protection of Jesus [PBUH].
(Riyad as-Salihin 1808)

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

Unshakably Strong Body

The 1st house also denotes the general appearance, vitality, and body of the native. Saturn as a malefic and steady planet, that governs over two strong signs Capricorn and Aquarius definitely increases the resistance and durability of the body.

With that being said, if Saturn is dignified and strong in the 1st house or ascendant, it indicates that the native is blessed (by God) with extreme strength and durability along with vitality, health, and longevity.

Their bodies are capable of enduring lots of heavy loads and stress. It gives them the ability to work hard and carry heavy objects like a strongman.

Speaking of carrying heavy objects, their height and width also tend to be larger than average. In fact, Saturn is a huge planet which also increases the size of the body of the native with this combination.

On the contrary, and undignified Saturn decreases the vitality of the body along with strength and endurance. A weak Saturn causes certain weaknesses in the body.

Difficult Lifepath

The 1st house is the most important one which signifies the urge of the soul and life path of the native. Saturn, just like any other malefic planet in the ascendant, makes the life path of the native rather intense with difficulties and obstacles.

The only difference with Saturn is that it prolongs the issues. If Saturn is dignified, these obstacles are definitely blessings in disguise because these hurdles are what build up and temper the person.

Saturn is also a planet that signifies hard labor and effort which also influences their life path. That is to say, these natives are prompted to struggle hard in life.

However, if Saturn is strong and well placed, these natives are also greatly rewarded for their hard work, persistence, honesty, and responsibility.

If Saturn is undignified, it provides a lot of difficulties and uncertain obstructions in the life path which is largely due to negative karma which is accumulated in the past life.

These natives see very little results even when struggling a lot in life. The best remedy to strengthen Saturn is to be as moral, faithful, and righteous as possible which will definitely reduce hurdles and increase prosperity.
