Results of exalted Saturn in Libra

Extremely Disciplined & Responsible

Saturn is the planet of karma, duties, and responsibilities which rules over the 10th zodiac sign Capricorn, which signifies the same matters.

Therefore, individuals with this combination are inherently hard-working, dutiful, and responsible.

What makes this combination very special is the fact that Saturn also forms the 10th disposition, which carries the same energies as the planet itself. Hence, the auspiciously manifested and amplified 10th disposition enhances these positive above-mentioned traits to a great extent.

Hence, this combination makes these individuals much more responsible and dutiful when compared to an average successful person.

A very strong planet of karma Saturn and powerfully manifested 10th disposition gives them natural inclination to fulfill their karmic duties with dignity and the highest integrity.

As the 10th disposition also signifies action and main activities in life, these natives are passionate about merging their profession or business path with their hobbies, interests, and karmic duties.

With natural passion, they have more energy and motivation to pursue their goals and fulfill their responsibilities with the highest integrity.

A dignified and strong Venus enhances this effect by endowing these natives with plenty of comforts which makes fulfilling duties much more convenient.

Righteous & Fortunate

The positively manifested 9th disposition enhances this effect greatly. Namely, this disposition represents the 9th astrological house which is all about ethics, morals, higher wisdom, philosophy, and righteousness. Therefore, not only that these natives are extremely dutiful, but also extremely righteous.

The fact that they pursue their goals by using righteous tactics only, they amplify their success and prosperity to a great extent. The 9th house signifies righteousness and luck simultaneously.

It proves that those who are ethical, moral, and righteous and have good intentions behind their actions are supported by divine forces.

Therefore, their ethical and righteous way of functioning in society ensures that their hard work is rewarded with abundant blessings.

A dignified Venus amplifies this effect to a great extent. That is because Venus is a very spiritual planet as it is exalted in the most spiritual sign Pisces. Therefore, a dignified Venus gives even more motivation to follow spiritual truths and remain righteous on the prosperous life path.

In addition to that, a strong Venus also reflects prioritizing spiritual values over materialistic ones which ironically attracts even more blessings. We always attract things we do not cling to.

Driven By Higher Purpose

In addition to that, the 9th disposition also signifies that there are higher purposes behind their great ambitions and hard work. That is because the 9th house also signifies higher wisdom and spirituality which is the reason why this astrological house is also called Dharma Bhava.

Dharma in other words means higher cosmic law and order. It also means righteousness, truth, and reality. This definition proves that the only right way to live is to harness the right behavior towards everyone and everything.

Saturn, at the same time, is the planet of karma which rules over the cause of effects in the universe. Karma, in other words, means action, work, or deed and is highly linked to spiritual truths that intentions and deeds influence the karmic records and destiny. The better the deeds, the better the future.

Therefore, Saturn resonates naturally well with the energies of the spiritual 9th disposition, where it gives natural desire to perform maximally good deeds to serve the highest cosmic law and order or Dharma.

As Saturn is exalted, it indicates that these individuals are inherently passionate about having a higher purpose or spiritual reasons behind their ambitions, actions, and deeds.

Their souls shine out of happiness when they witness the bloom of justice and equality in the world which is promoted by their hard work, efforts, and aspirations.

By serving the higher purpose while maintaining dignity, honesty, and righteousness, their speed of success and divine blessings are multiplied manyfold.

While they are financially blessed, their greatest rewards do not always lie in materialistic values, but rather in the spiritual fulfillment and happiness they receive from serving truth, morals, and righteousness.

A dignified Venus helps to manifest the visualizations and ideas that are inspired by higher truths into reality effectively. Venus gives the ability to romanticize and promote good movements effectively by making it more tangible for regular people who might not be spiritually awakened.

Extremely Fair & Justice-Loving

As Saturn rules over karma or deeds, it is naturally a very justice-loving planet. That is the fundamental reason why it is exalted in the 7th zodiac sign Libra, which signifies social justice, balance, equality, harmony, and compassion.

Accordingly, individuals with this combination are extremely fair and justice-loving. Even though they appear very serious, as the natural malefic planet Saturn suggests, they are deeply very compassionate.

With that being said, they always strive to maintain social justice, balance, and harmony with their hard work, actions, and efforts. This effect is provided by the fact that Saturn is the ruler of the 10th zodiac sign of duty and positioned in the 7th sign of society, justice, and balance.

With exalted Saturn amplifying the 10th disposition of duty, a lot of responsibilities are placed on their shoulder. This means that conditions prompt them to be mature which makes them appear serious and strict in public.

However, they are extremely fair and righteous which attracts admirers around them. That is because the combination of mature with righteousness is actually the most attractive thing in a person.

Highly Reputed By Society

This combination of exalted Saturn in Libra influences the social appearance, status, and rank remarkably and in a positive direction with the virtuous characteristics provided by this combination.

  • Hello sir, I am a virgo ascendent person. I have Jupiter Saturn conjunction in 8th house of Aires of birth chart. What are the effects?

  • Hello Martin,
    Saturn in libra in 10H and Venus in sagittarius in 12H, capricorn ascendant in d9 chart. Martin, as Saturn is dignified, will it’s third aspect on venus benefically affect it ? (For info- Jupiter is in aquarius )

  • Hi my Saturn is exalted at 21 degrees Libra also on my ascendent at 21 degrees Libra, what does this mean if anything?

  • Hello,
    so nice to gain insights through your logical writings.
    Please clear one doubt I humbly submit: Why does Saturn in its deepest exaltation in D-1 have to get debilitated in D-9. It’s incoveivable that just some mathematical distribution of pada-lords can actually cause a Saturn in Vishakha Pada -1 (deepest exa, @ 20 deg in Libra) to fall in D-9.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    • Hello Captain Yogiraj

      I am very glad to receive such a thoughtful question. It is something I was pondering about for years. It is definitely not just a matter of mathematics but it reflects actual practical outcomes.

      When speaking about it philosophically rather than scientifically, the deep exaltation makes one so over-showered with the significance indicated by the exalted planet which attracts someone who completely lacks the traits one with deep exaltation has.

      According to Saravali, exaltation makes the planet most powerful but I think it carries risks. Whereas the planet in its own comfortable sign is less strong but carries fewer risks.

      The risk I talk about here is that one with the exalted planet in D1 can have so much in material life that it can leave certain emptiness in the soul. In some examples, the exalted planet shows that one considers oneself superior which is in complete conflict with all (including Hindu) religious teachings that clearly teach that we all are equal in front of the creator. So it is never a good thing to have something too much, which the deep exaltation D1 and debilitation D9 reflect practically.

      In a quick chart reading tutorial for beginners, I also mention that it is never reasonable to judge people according to debilitation or exaltation for there are mentioned cancellation of debilitation and reversal of exaltation in classics. Sometimes, a debilitated planet with cancellation can reflect even better outcomes than an exalted planet in D1.

      Let me know if my understanding helped to clear some confusion

      Best wishes

      • Many thanks! Indeed makes sense! Seems a classic case of ‘The higher they walk, the harder they fall’.
        P.S: When can i know more about your tutorials, Martin?

        • In reply to your example of a classic case, I remember that in some classical scripture (I think it was Saravali) I read that the period of exalted D1 & debilitated D9 starts well and in the middle, lots of issues are developed. In most cases, people with this combination overcome those issues well and learn from mistakes.

          Same way, debilitated D1 & exalted D9 are said to give tragic results in the first part of the planetary period but sudden improvements in the middle.

          Could you please share your requests/suggestions about what to write in my future tutorials?

          • Many thanks. By tutorials, I actually thought that you conduct courses /classes to train others your insights & prediction methods. (was looking forward thence)

          • I have been unsuccessfully trying to find your blogs covering the nature of each rashi in specific. Could you please write on that too; just the way you have covered about each planet, and also each house in singularity?

  • İ have Saturn at 10th house & 10 th degree of Libra, and with exact Jupiter conjuction at Libra on Natal.
    Those two giants trine to my Mars and South Node which are both on Aquarius.
    My Venus and Mercury are at 2nd house at Capricorn. İ am obsessed with justice and i dont tolerate unfairness. Very nice article.
