Saturn in Krittika – Aries

They can become really tough characters. Life will have a way of testing their endurance, their commitment, their patience. This position is like forging steel. Trial by fire time and time again; heated to incredibly high temperatures and then beaten into form. They often grow up being bullied until they learn to become the bully themselves. But life is not usually easy for them as they are constantly trying to avoid getting burned, while constantly putting their hand in the fire.

They are often weak, of small, or cripple, or helpless in some way; but they put on this tough shell to hide their weakness. This Saturn can affect the brain as well as the whole body. Inspiration does not come easy for them, they are not usually able to connect with god or anyone in a loving way; they are stuck in reality and find it difficult to bring awareness to the higher states of consciousness. The right brain might be less active leaving the left brain to work through all the step by step solutions before coming to a solution. They need time to make critical decisions or work their way through critical missions. They might also freeze and hesitate when the time comes to act. Especially in Aries there can be a fear of taking initiative, they might not even bother trying to start things or take the lead. This makes them followers with much less personal empowerment; it’s a kind of false power or speculative energy. It’s not a true energy source that leads to righteousness.

But often times they work very closely with reality in life or death situations like explosive experts or bomb disposal experts. Many scientist working with volatile substances, criminals who get themselves into volatile situations. They might be working in construction trades in isolated and dangerous environments. They don’t usually have much to do with the arts, or anything that demands finer sentiments; though there are exceptions like Bob Dylan whose Saturn is in exchange with Mars

Saturn will also have his effect on the razor, making it old and dull, possibly stone age tools for cutting. The criticism will be cold, harsh and old; exhausting. The cuts are serious, repetitive. These people might be resistant to criticism, which of course causes it to hurt that much more. Their sense of self worth and Self-confidence can be low.

The work or service environment will feature a lot of heat, fire, cutting machines, steel. heavy equipment. They might work with fire and combustion metallurgy as well. There seem to be many people skilled with explosives, guns, rockets, flares. Even Stephen Hawking is famous for the Big Bang, Elon Musk builds cheap rockets and electric cars, Phineas P. Gage was an old school railway boss working with explosives. And of course The titanic likely fired off every flare they had as it went down.

An interesting point that has been raised through research is that several of these people have had their brains preserved after death. John Wayne Gacy’s brain is apparently in a ziplock bag somewhere. Phineas Gage’s brain is in Harvard. No doubt they will preserve and study Stephen Hawking’s brain after death.

Saturn in Krittika (Aries) Pada 1 , Sagittarius Navamsha: Stephen Hawking has Lou Gehrig’s disease which attacks the nervous system causing muscle weakness, cramps or twitching. It often goes on to affect speech and swallowing. Muhammed Ali developed Parkinson’s disease which also affects speech and motor coordination. In 1980 it was reported that Ali had a small hole in the outer layer of his brain. Phineas P. Gage had an iron bar blast a hole though his skull and destroy most of the frontal lobe on the left side of the  brain in an industrial accident. He survived for 12 more years but became crude and loosing all social inhibition.

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 1st house: “Foreign customers will be easily copied and imitated. If Saturn is not afflicted there will be much concern for others. Self-confidence is normally justified. Moral stability will also be marked. The disposition is calm, grave and serious. The body will be weak and emancipated. Progress in any venture will be slow but certain. There may come an aversion for responsibility. This position makes habits inactive. Loss through negligence and lack of opportunity are possible. The same results will be noticed when Saturn aspects the ascendant. Misfortune is likely in the early part of life.”

If well placed by sign or aspect the native is contemplative and considerate, discrete, prudent, systematic, diligent, frugal, intimate, attentive, quiet, sincere, and serious, loves merit, thoughtful, growth and success are slow but sure. Afflicted Saturn indicates trouble and sickness in the part of the body represented by the sign it’s in. Their temperament is subtle, acquisitive, penetrative, careful, secretive, and sometimes gloomy and discontented. There is loss through sickness, misfortune and delays. Generally these natives are deficient in Phosphate and Calcium. They are given to nervousness, timidity, and diffidence in youth; boldness from middle age. The native with Saturn in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces prefers service and gets promotion after pursuing seniors. Fortune smiles on him by retirement time. There is only one marriage; sons are few or none but many daughters. He has large but weak eyes, commanding speech, authoritative look if in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius.

BPHS: 10th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be learned, famous, a poet. Will incur disease in childhood but be happy later. Wealth will increase day by day. For Aries ascendant this Saturn will have an adverse effect on health and wealth. He will be troubled by headaches and there will be a diminution of longevity.

They might be like feudal slaved attached to the land  but having none for themselves.

Commentary: The dark villain. Bob Dylan fortune is lifted up by the power of the Saturn-Mars exchange. His fortune came from singing about broken hearts and fucked up relationships; selling his soul to the devil for a buck. This Saturn also sits heavily on his moon giving the effect of a long slow emotional burn. And do doubt some scandalous relationships with younger women. But by this point the world will have come to expect nothing less from the late, great Bob Dylan.

Saturn in Krittika (Aries) 10th house

Rules the 7th & 8th houses for Cancer ascendant.

Jataka Bharnam: “Saturn debilitated (or in enemy sign) in 10th house makes a person cruel, very thrifty, earning through very ordinary labour or service.”

Phala Deepika: Saturn in 10th house “native will be a king or minister, or depend on agriculture. He will be brave wealthy and famous.”

Jataka Bharnam: Saturn in the 10th “makes a prime minister of the kings court, exceptionally prudent, courteous and official manner, chief of villages, officer if cities, extremely clever dexterous and wealthy. They make slow progress in their career, lack happiness from father, perform religious celebrations with cheer and according with family tradition.”

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 10th house: “The native becomes a ruler or minister. He will be an agriculturist, brave, rich and famous. He will be dispassionate and work for the down-trodden masses. He will be judicious and work in the capacity of a judge. The native visits scared rivers and shines and becomes and aesthetic later in life. His career is marked by sudden elevations and depressions. If associated with the 8th lord in a malefic navamsha, the native gets a tyrannical superior officer.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 10th house: “The natives wife will not remain under his control. The native himself will be religious and gifted with wealth and sons etc.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 10th house: “The native will flourish in a profession abroad or his career might involve constant travelling. One will have a devoted and faithful partner who is also likely to be employed and contributing the family income, or be helpful to the natives career. If afflicted, the natives partner may be over-ambitious, but without sufficient capacity. Consequently, the natives career may suffer and deteriorate.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 10th house: “The native will not have paternal bliss, he will be a tale-bearer bereft of livelihood. If there is benefic aspect, these evils will not mature. The native may deal in scraps or dead things. Raja yoga can give work in life insurance or archeology, as well as work relates to coal, metal, minerals mined from beneath the earth.”

B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 10th house: “Penury and heavy debt will befall the native, misfortune will follow him at every step. If the 8th lord is weak or falls in the 6th, 8th or 12th navamsha the intensity of misfortune is reduced. If the 8th lord is severely afflicted, the native may suffer physical debility, disease, disfiguration, weak constitution and no bodily comfort. He will be the target of displeasure of superiors and trouble from government will cause worry.”

Commentary: Unexpected accidents and injuries at work. The work place is usually a dangerous area where anything can happen. They typically work with a partner in some way though they are typically considered “free agents” who call their own shots. Of course knee problems, or even deeper problems of the skeletal structure are likely to be apparent. With just a little more negative influence this position can have real explosive potential. Phineas P. Gage? worked for the railway, with explosives and heavy iron. He is best known for an explosion that shot a steel rod up through his chin and right through his brain with out killing him. The hospital had to dislodge it from his head, he survived, but became much more unruly and lost some of his memory. The went on the road as a side show afterwards as he was unable to maintain proper employment. Partnerships will low, crude, unruly people. One-to-one negotiations are public and the result is open, anything can happen; even death. This is the position of a hard labourer, mitary, a fighter, a killer, a mad-man.

Saturn in Krittika (Aries) 11th house

Not good for the happiness of getting a son.”

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 11th house: “The native earns by employing many people. He will have few friends, will be fond of enjoyment and will earn though government sources. He will have a long and healthy life and will be involved with politics commanding great respect.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 11th house: “Devoid of wealth, miserable in boyhood, but happy later in life. If the 8th lord is conjunct a benefic they will be long lived.”

B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 11th house: “Elder brother may pass through a difficult time; relationship with him will be strained and troubled. Or the elder brother may cause anguish to the native and his family though his unscrupulous behaviour and conduct. Business may suffer losses and run into debts. If benefics have influence there will be trouble, but the native gets help from friends and older brother to overcome. Afflictions will aggravate the malefic results.”

BPHS: 9th lord in the 11th house: “The native will have financial gains day by day, he will be devoted to teachers, virtuous and doer of charitable deeds.”

B.V. Raman: 9th lord in the 11th house: “the native will be exceedingly rich and have powerful, influential friends. His father will be a well known and well placed man. If afflicted, selfish friends will destroy ones wealth through scheming and fraud.”

    • 11th from Moon:

Saturn in Krittika (Aries) 12th house 

Rules the 9th & 10th houses for Taurus ascendant. Powerful yoga karaka planet.

Karako Bhavo Nashto: When the karaka (or signifying agent) of a house is placed the house of his significations it destroys the results of that house. As Karaka for the 12th house, Saturn bring too much isolation and deprivation. May be related to depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.

Phala Deepika: Saturn in 12th house “makes a person impudent, indigent, childless, disabled, stupid, defeated by his enemies.”

Jataka Bharnam: Saturn in 12th house person is “merciless, extremely poor, unhappy because of expenses, effort, and expenditure. The person is lethargic and living in company of mean people. He is devoid of some bodily organ and deprived of all kinds of happiness. Poor eyesight, excitable temperament, miserable, dirty, wicked, devoid of wealth. One is often oppressed by own men or he is opposed to them.”

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 12th house: “The native will be dull-headed and lose all his money. He will have squint eyes, a deformed limb, make many enemies, suffer losses in trade, be a pessimist and commit sin in secret.”

BPHS: 9th lord in the 12th house: “Will incur loss of fortunes, will always spend his money on auspicious acts and will become poor spending money to entertain guests. When Jupiter is here they will be very generous and spend much money with the desire to increase their fame. They spend lavishly on entertaining guests without care for finances.”

B.V. Raman: 9th lord in the 12th house: “Gives a poor back-ground. The native will suffer much and have to work very hard in life; even then success will not come to him. He will be religious and noble but always in want. Father may die early leaving the native penniless.”

BPHS: 10th lord in the 12th house: “The native will spend in royal courts, or for the government, will have fear from enemies and be worried despite being skilful. Trouble from authority. This is especially the case for Scorpio ascendant.”

B.V. Raman: 10th lord in the 12th house: “The native will have to work in far off places. He will lack comforts and face many difficulties in life. If beneficially disposed the native becomes a spiritual seeker. If afflicted by malefic he will be separated from his family and wander about without success. He may indulge in smuggling and other nefarious activities. Rahu afflicting the 10th lord will make his a cheat and a criminal. He causes sorrow to his family and relatives.”

Commentary: They will be very hard workers. This is like the isolated liner jack; They fear the beast the have inside. Their isolation might include intense practices in the face of harsh internal criticism. Beaten down buy the father or step father figures. They have very bad luck, bad reputation, extremely harsh activities, may be just as likely to be known for their barbarous acts as have them perpetrated on them. In many ways, this is an ancestral curse that goes way back in the family.
