What does Saturn in Scorpio mean?

It means that the strict, cold, disciplined, cruel, slow-moving, patient, authoritative, and justice-loving planet Saturn combines with mysterious, passionate, secretive, manipulative, possessive, domineering, intuitive fixed water sign Scorpio.

This position is considered inauspicious as Saturn is sharing an inimical relationship with Mars, the ruler of Scorpio.

Mars also becomes the guiding planet to Saturn in this sign. Therefore, the deeper and additional outcomes of this combination are highly dependent on the strength, dignity, and placement of Mars in the birth chart.

With that being said, Mars neutralizes the enmity with Saturn, if it (Mars) is placed in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th and 12th sign from Saturn in the natal birth chart.

Saturn in this sign is in 10th and 11th from its own signs Aquarius and Capricorn respectively.

The 10th disposition represents the strongest 10th quadrant house or Kendra Bhava which signifies karma or main duties in life, actions, motives, responsibilities, social rank & status, high authority, greatest achievements, spotlight, midheaven, etc.

The 11th disposition represents the 11th astrological house which belongs to the triangle of desires and signifies fulfillment of aspirations, gains, profits, friends, communities, large networks, auspicious celebrations, etc.

By default, the above-mentioned dispositions and their significances are damaged to some extend by undignified Saturn, unless the enmity is neutralized by Mars.

Results of Saturn in Scorpio

Envious & Greedy

Scorpio is the 8th zodiac sign which represents the 8th astrological house that signifies secrets and everything that is unknown or hidden. On the negative light, the energies of the 8th house signify uncontrolled passion, dirty secrets, and jealousy.

Accordingly, as Saturn is undignified in Scorpio, it damages the energies of this zodiac sign and therefore indicates that individuals with this combination tend to be jealous and envious.

It is important to acknowledge what are the major causes of jealousy according to the energies of this combination.

To begin with, jealousy is generally caused by various deep fears, insecurities, and uncontrolled desires which cause feelings of deserving more possessions.

Scorpio is known for being the most passionate zodiac sign. Hence, an undignified Saturn reflects that individuals with this combination desire more than they have. In other words, they show a lack of gratitude for the blessings they already have which causes them to be jealous in the first place.

The astrological explanation for increased desires and lack of gratitude is hidden behind the 11th disposition the energies of which are manifested inauspiciously by undignified Saturn. More specifically, the 11th house, which is represented by the given disposition, belongs to the triangle of desires.

As the combination is inauspiciously formed, it indicates having uncontrolled desires which lead to a lack of gratitude and envy. Therefore, these individuals are generally dissatisfied with what they have which motivates them to compare themselves to others in the first place.

Moreover, because of being dissatisfied, they tend to have an evil eye on others. Additional expressions of jealousy include frequent gossiping, criticizing, and judging others unfairly.

However, if Mars is dignified and/or cancels the enmity of Saturn, it gives relief to these effects. To begin with, Mars is the planet of courage and when it is strong, it helps to overcome inner fears and insecurities.

More specifically, it gives them the ability to acknowledge and admit their deep insecurities. Only by doing that, they are able to fully diminish their inner concerns. By mapping the root causes of jealousy they know where to start improving themselves.

A dignified Mars also blesses them with great abilities to take action and develop personal strengths which makes them feel strong and competent enough. As a result, they become more confident which helps them to attain results they desire and dissolve envy completely.

Deep Insecurities

Besides uncontrolled desires, there are also other causes of jealousy. Namely, the 8th zodiac sign Scorpio also signifies darkness and various fears. Weakened Saturn in Scorpio indicates that these insecurities are unbearable and cause various negative side effects.

Most of all, it causes poor judgment and paranoia which makes them assume that others have bad intentions against them. This makes them constantly alert and sensitive to environmental factors. Moreover, out of bad judgment, they are inclined to make decisions that are based on wrong assumptions or unrealistic fears.

This effect leads to a situation where they are unable to trust good people and scare them away without any proven reasons. The emotional alertness makes them look very suspicious which also scares others away automatically.

However, if Mars is dignified and/or cancels the enmity, this negative effect is mitigated. First of all, their courage reflects that they are not negatively influenced by environmental factors not to mention fears or phobias.

As a result, their judgment also improves which in turn gives them the ability to make good decisions based on adequate reasoning.

More importantly, if the dignity of Saturn is restored by the cancellation of enmity, it indicates that their gut feelings may be actually correct. For instance, they are able to recognize the hidden motives of others and protect themselves by taking necessary steps according to their intuition.

What supports this effect is the fact that Mars itself is the planet of intuition and it is strong, it enhances their ability to feel hidden energies and adjust their actions accordingly.

Unfair & Secretive

The 10th disposition formed by this combination represents the 10th astrological house which signifies karma, action, and motives. As these energies are damaged, it indicates that their jealousy can lead them to perform unethical deeds with motivation to either steal possessions or cause damage to the ones they have an evil eye on out of jealousy.

Saturn is the most justice-loving planet and if it is undignified, it reflects a tendency to act unethically and treat people unfairly.

As the 8th sign, Scorpio signifies hidden matters, it indicates that they use secret tactics or act behind the scenes in order to cause damage to their rivals or the ones who they despise for some reason.

Alternatively, it indicates that they are overly possessive and obsessed with spying on people mostly for selfish or negative purposes. They have a habit of forcefully invading the privacy of other people which is considered immoral on many levels.

The 11th disposition also signifies communities and connections with specific groups of people. With undignified Saturn forming this disposition, these natives are often involved with groups of unethical people with whom they attempt to fulfill their immoral goals which include causing damage to others.

Alternatively, the energies of 11th house in combination with the 8th zodiac sign Scorpio indicate being involved with illegal underground activities that are morally unacceptable.

Negatively manifested energies of the 8th zodiac sign Scorpio also indicate that they are inclined to obtain hidden wisdom, such as knowledge of psychology or occult sciences to harness them on bad deeds.

However, if Mars is dignified and/or cancels the enmity, it makes these natives righteous and justice-loving which prevents them from committing unethical acts towards other people. That is because Mars is the ruler of 1st zodiac sign Aries which represents the 1st astrological house that belongs to the triangle of righteousness.

In addition to that, Mars is also the planet of action, and when it is dignified it guides their actions in a way that causes no harm to other people. If it also neutralizes the enmity of Saturn, it makes them respectful towards the masses. This means that they are inclined to treat people fairly and kindly.

Miserable & Rude

The jealousy caused by this combination leads to the formation of various negative emotions such as resentment, disgust, helplessness, and anger. Emotions are influenced by this combination because Scorpio represents the water elements, which signifies the same.

In fact, the resentment or feeling of having being treated unfairly is caused by themselves in the first place. while they are quick to judge other members of society, they fail to realize their own mistakes.

Therefore, the negatively manifested energies of the 8th zodiac sign Scorpio also indicates being hypocritical. In other words, they simply judge others while ignoring their own mistakes.

They often project the fault on others for feeling angry or resented which motivates them to perform unethical acts against them.

A negatively manifested 11th disposition, which also signifies socializing, also indicates that they often express their negative emotions such as disgust and anger without any reason caused by hidden anger and jealousy.

If Mars is dignified and/or cancels the enmity, it diminishes most of the negative side effects caused by jealousy. More specifically, a strong Mars does not let them act in a way that causes loss of dignity.

They are honest with themselves and always admit if they make a mistake. At the same time, they criticize others only if there is a reason and do it with the intention to help improve them.

In fact, with increased confidence, they do not have the motivation to discourage others with negative comments.

Determined & Materialistic

The 10th disposition which is formed by Saturn in Scorpio signifies social status, rank, and high authority while the 11th disposition signifies aspirations, gains, and profits.

Therefore, individuals with this combination are inherently very ambitious and have an inherent desire to be celebrated and attain gains.

However, as Saturn, the planet of karma is undignified, it indicates that their motives behind these desires are questionable. For instance, they might be craving social status and spotlight in order to relieve deep insecurities and fears which are caused by damaged 8th zodiac sign Scorpio.

As the 10th disposition of action and karma is damaged, it indicates that they harness unethical or socially unacceptable ways in an attempt to reach great heights in society, career, or business. The fear of lack or loss is what enhances the inclination to use unethical shortcuts to reach greater heights faster.

The fact that the 10th house belongs to the triangle of wealth while the 11th house signifies profits indicates that these individuals are somewhat materialistic.

The unhealthy and excess desire for worldly gains caused by undignified Saturn in Scorpio reflects their inability to see the higher purpose behind their ambitions. Being overly concerned about materialistic values motivates them towards performing unethical acts for selfish purposes.

In addition to that, Scorpio is a very driven and aggressive zodiac sign in which the weakened Saturn produces a ruthless and fierce person who is interested in domineering their surroundings. Hence, they are willing to do whatever it takes in order to achieve their goals, even if it requires using unfair means.

If Mars is dignified and/or cancels the enmity, it improves this effect to a great extent by giving these natives a higher purpose behind their ambitions. Most importantly, a dignified planet of action Mars indicates that they attain their goals and ambitions righteously, ethically, and honestly.

Obstacles & Hindrances

Their excessive materialistic goals also enhance their envious nature. Frankly, it also increases obstacles and delays because wasting energy on jealousy makes it harder to concentrate on personal goals.

Engineering conspiracies and other secret tactics require a tremendous amount of energy.

Therefore, if they also harness secret tactics to cause harm to others, they waste even more energy which equals having less time and resources available to work on personal ambitions and skillsets.

As per the basic law of karma, who causes obstacles to others, receives the same in return sooner or later. Karma also has the tendency to amplify the results which return to the sender which makes repaying bad deeds many times harder than simply avoiding doing them.

Why use precious energy on negative purposes and increase negative karma instead of using it on personal development and building up good karma which brings great blessings?

The obvious answer is that there is absolutely no reason to be sinful or unfair. Not only that bad deeds accumulate bad karma, but also deprive of materialistic profits. At the same time, the righteous will always win as good deeds and intentions are protected by divine forces. Therefore, there are tons of reasons why to become and remain ethical.

A dignified Mars improves this effect by making them righteous which also influences their motives and actions positively. By having good intentions behind every action and decision, they are able to win over every situation and sinful enemy.

A strong Mars also gives them a strong sense of purpose and direction in life which motivates them to harness their precious energy entirely on self-development and attaining personal goals.

Damaged Social Rank

All the previously mentioned character traits that arise from this combination also cause great damage to the social status and reputation of the native with this combination as the damaged 10th disposition suggests.

In addition to that, Saturn is the planet of civilizations and if it is dignified it reflects that these natives tend to treat people unfairly or have a bad attitude against them.

While it is possible to hide this trait, subconsciously people from the community or society feel that which repels them from assisting these natives.

The lack of support from the society also reduces the chances to achieve great heights in life. For great social status, support from society is crucial and it can be achieved by fairness, righteousness, and integrity.

If Mars is dignified and/or cancels the enmity, it saves these individuals from a bad reputation by blessing them with many good qualities. With good qualities, they attract lots of social support which in turn promotes achieving great heights in life.

Moreover, a dignified planet of action Mars makes them extremely dutiful which enables them to reach high positions and social rank. They do not expect others to support them and therefore take responsibility for their own future.

Unexpected Upheavals

Scorpio, which represents the energies of the 8th astrological house also signifies unexpected events. Scorpio is the most powerful sign because the events it provides can not be clearly predicted or analyzed.

It is the hidden force of mother nature that controls everything according to karma or deeds. As Saturn, the planet of karma is undignified in this sign, it indicates events that are negative and bring great upheavals along with them.

While they are experts in hiding their unethical deeds, the almighty always remembers them and provides results accordingly. Even when someone manages to escape from taking responsibility for their own immoral acts, karma is what takes care of it and prompts them to exhaust all karmas.

What makes this condition worse is the fact that the 10th disposition also signifies karma which is the sum of all deeds, both good and bad. As mentioned earlier, these natives are inclined to fill up their negative karmic baggage the results of which strike suddenly when it is least expected.

The results that sudden events and upheavals produce can vary according to the situation. Usually, the weakened energies of Saturn, 8th zodiac sign Scorpio, and 10th disposition indicate any unseen events that cause specific loss or damage which are directly linked to the earlier bad deeds to make a person aware of their mistakes.

To avoid great upheavals and losses from karmic events, it is strongly advised for these natives to refrain from unethical acts and perform as many good deeds as possible towards everyone in their society or community.

Alternatively, Saturn in Scorpio gives fear of uncertain events caused by hidden forces or enemies. They are in constant fear of being invaded on and attacked emotionally and physically. This puts them in a constant state of alertness which can lead to anxiety.

Often, the condition is caused by fear of having to repay karmic debts for earlier bad deeds. Alternatively, expecting other people to have bad intentions towards them is what may also cause social anxiety.

Out of unexplained fears, they might accuse or attack a wrong subject, who did not impose any danger upon them.

If Mars is dignified and/or cancels the enmity, it indicates that their motivation, ambition, and ability to avoid making bad deeds and correct the ones already made.

By doing this, they reduce their negative karma to a great extent and ensure that they come out of upheavals and sudden tragic events as winners and stronger than ever before.

Alternatively, a strong and dignified Mars also blesses with great intuition which enables them to predict events prior to happening and prepare to avoid any losses or damage. With this powerful ability, they are able to protect themselves extremely well from various threats.

Transformational Processes

The 8th house which is represented by Scorpio belongs to the triangle of salvation and therefore has the capability to initiate spiritual awakening which is crucial to attaining salvation.

At the same time, as Saturn is the planet of karma, it also rules over the so-called gates of heaven. It scales whether the karmic balance is good enough to grant access to heavenly destinations or not.

Accordingly, an undignified Saturn indicates a very troublesome path to salvation. It is because they tend to choose the hard way to become mature in life by learning from their repeated mistakes.

As a result of their resistant character, they can be a bit ignorant regarding their own mistakes which can prolong the painful transformational process until they learn from them.

This also indicates that their spiritual awakening can be delayed until they are willing to face the truth courageously and correct their deepest mistakes.

From the bright side, the sudden and disastrous upheavals lead to important transformational processes. The main lesson of Scorpio Saturn people is learning to become fair, truthful, and righteous in everything they do.

If they succeed in learning from their mistakes, they become much wiser, stronger, and durable than ever before.

With that being said, if Mars is dignified and/or cancels the enmity of Saturn, it indicates that they are able to overcome negativity which promotes becoming ethical and moral.

That is because Mars is the planet of courage and when it is strong, it provides with sufficient amount of valor that is required to admit mistakes. Admitting mistakes is the first sign of having the motivation to avoid repeating them.

It is often said that the last mistake is the best teacher and this quote applies to individuals with this set of combinations. With that being said, when they make a mistake, they rarely repeat them because they choose to learn and avoid repeating them.

Moreover, Mars is the planet of intuition which enhances their ability to grasp hidden information about ancient sciences, spirituality, and enlightenment.

A strong Mars gives them the urge to harness their passionate energies on deep research of various topics which helps them to step on the righteous path. In various religious texts, it is said that through knowledge it is possible to get closer to the almighty God.

  • Woah. Spell bound! Absolutely spot on when talking about negative aspects of this combination. Astrology is not a pseudoscience. Wish our Legal system considers astrological inferences as supportive evidence especially in criminal cases.
