Natal Astrology Series: The Sun, Moon and Ascendant in Aquarius

The series will delineate the traits of those born under the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant through the signs. If you are new to astrology, you can check your birth chart whether you have one of these placements by clicking the following sites Astrodienst and Astroseek. In this article, we will interpret the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant in Aquarius.

The Sun transits the sign of Aquarius from January 21 to February 19, but the exact start and end depends on the year. Please note that because of the precession of the equinoxes, your zodiac sign is not the same as the constellation the ancients name them after.

It is noteworthy that the Sun is in the sign of its detriment in Aquarius. In traditional astrology, the Sun signifies the individual, the solar hero, the monarch, the elite, and the leader, thus when the Sun is in Leo there is self empowerment; the desire for recognition and control amplifies. Whenever the Sun is in Aquarius, it acts contrary to itself: it is the anti-hero, the democrat, and represents the collective. The Sun in this sign expresses individuality and the desire for control bizarrely, so in extreme cases, it can be the rebel, the eccentric, the voyeur, the puppeteer, and the socialist.

However, we cannot generalize people born under the signs of Sun in Capricorn and Aquarius because it depends on the sign Saturn occupies during birth. Unlike Mercury and Venus, Saturn can be anywhere in the zodiac. Also, Saturn can either be direct or retrograde and is very important to note when tackling these placements. Therefore, there are 14 types of Aquarius depending on where Saturn is at birth.

  1. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Aquarius Oriental (Rises before the Sun): In Aquarius, Saturn is powerful because it is at home and in its triplicity. When it is oriental, its power amplifies, especially for those with diurnal nativities because Saturn is a member of the diurnal sect. The reformer-systems builder is the archetype of the Sun and Saturn in Aquarius oriental. Saturn in its dignity and with it becoming steadily visible in the early morning skies is the reformer-systems builder as it introduces new structures and innovative methods. However, unlike Capricorn, Aquarius’ concerns are ideas, mental constructs and social structures. Their beliefs lean on the liberal. For those born during the day, Saturn takes the helm and this makes natives remarkably cool, cerebral and impartial but surprise those around them as they can be friendly and outspoken. Natives are highly systematic but can be rigid and stubborn. They are likely to work in public. For those of nocturnal births, Mercury’s influence further sharpens the mind and makes natives more adaptable than their diurnal counterpart. They are highly imaginative and may appear eccentric. These natives are naturally eloquent.
  2. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Aquarius Occidental (Rises after the Sun): Natives of Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Aquarius occidental are the lore keeper. We associate the lore keeper as Saturn occidental with its light waning signifies old age, Aquarius is the sign of communal knowledge and the Sun representing enlightenment. The lore keeper archetype manifests as natives displaying a deep interest in the ancient occult and advanced knowledge. Since Saturn is becoming invisible to the naked eye, natives can be quiet and secretive. These Aquarians uphold tradition and are conservative. Saturn’s influence for those born during the day strengthens making them analytical, realistic and communicative than their nocturnal counterpart. They prefer working behind the scenes and would rather not make a statement. Secretiveness becomes apparent for those of nocturnal nativities. However, Mercury’s influence produces prolific writers and deep thinkers.
  3. Sun in Aquarius conjunct Saturn in Aquarius (+/- 2° orb): These natives possess both the oriental and occidental Saturnian characteristics, especially for those with Saturn cazimi (less than 16′) or exactly conjunct the Sun. However, natives born during the day will have the oriental Saturn traits prominent, while for those born at night, the occidental Saturn characteristics take precedence. Saturn outside the orb of the cazimi is combust. In this state, it is technically hidden and impeded, so natives may experience problems in matters related to Saturn such as discipline, career, relationship with authority figures or being the authority figure, spirituality, and physical vitality. Careers fit for all of those with Sun in Aquarius and Saturn in Aquarius are in the aeronautics, physical sciences, social sciences, political science and law & law enforcement. Astrology and the occult may also appeal to the natives.
  4. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Pisces: The placement endows the natives with fertile imagination and creativity with Saturn in the watery sign of Pisces. These natives may have their head in the clouds. However, the combination also makes them moody and unpredictable. Jupiter’s and Venus’ influence upon the natives manifests as being generous, empathetic, and understanding. These Aquarians are the true humanitarian. Saturn’s influence becomes apparent for those born during the day, thus they are more realistic than their nocturnal counterpart. Natives born at night are highly idealistic and immensely moody. However, with Saturn as the sect malefic, there can be confusion in one’s life goals or path.
  5. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Aries: The Sun and Saturn are in mutual reception by domicile and exaltation. The Sun is in Saturn’s diurnal domicile, while Saturn is in the sign of the Sun’s exaltation. However, natives may not fully benefit from this mutual reception as both planets are in their debilities; the Sun is in the sign of its detriment in Aquarius while Saturn is in the sign of its fall in Aries. These natives are the trailblazers, and their inventiveness are remarkable. They are also mentally sharp, quick-witted and straightforward. However, the placement produces high strung and strongly individualistic natives. Like those with Sun in Capricorn with Saturn in Aries, the relationship of the Sun and Saturn augurs difficult relationship with the father or with authority figures. The Sun in Aquarius-Saturn in Aries natives may express this dismay through rebellion and disruptiveness. Unlike those with dignified Saturn, these Aquarians can be quarrelsome and ill-tempered. For those born during the day, Mars as the sect malefic and as Saturn’s ruler amplifies the temper, impatience, and non-conformity. However, the Sun and Saturn are in mutual reception by triplicity, thus making the natives respect boundaries and at least recognize the rationale behind the laws. The problems with the father and of authority figures exacerbate for natives of nocturnal births. With the Sun in detriment and Saturn as the sect malefic, depression is a potential problem. The best careers for natives born with this placement are in the military, political, and social arena. They also make excellent venture capitalists, as they are comfortable in dealing with the unknowns.
  6. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Taurus: These Aquarians are natural industrialists, as they can be innovative and enterprising. They are willful and hardworking, but can also be stubborn and impervious to other people’s suggestions and opinions. For those born during the day, the entrepreneurial qualities strengthens with Saturn in Venus’ domicile and triplicity. While for those of nocturnal births, Mercury as the Sun’s triplicity ruler and the Moon as Saturn’s ruler enhances the native’s intuition and creativity. However, laziness and inertia can be a problem for those born at night. Natives excel as bankers, traders, entrepreneurs, economists, architects, and real estate agents.
  7. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Gemini: Natives are highly intelligent, witty, and eloquent. They make excellent diplomats, disputants and negotiators. These people are extremely perceptive and possess a deep understanding of human behavior. Saturn gains triplicity rulership in diurnal charts, and this makes the natives focused, impartial, and deliberate. Natives possess powerful analytical and mathematical faculties. Those born at night possess the gift of gab and creativity, with Mercury’s influence on the Sun and Saturn strengthening. Market Traders, Economists, Mathematicians, Writers, Speakers, Lawyers, Corporate Strategists, and Marketing Executives are the best career options.
  8. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Cancer: When the Sun is in Aquarius, Saturn, its Lord continues to be retrograde in Cancer and in the sign of its detriment. The prime motivation of those born with Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Cancer is emotional fulfillment. We can say natives are the humanitarian Aquarians as the Moon imbues them with compassionate and nurturing characteristic. They are also family-oriented and generous. However, Cancer is the sign of Saturn’s detriment, thus issues with moodiness, boundaries and limit setting are on the fore. The humanitarian characteristics amplify with Jupiter as the exaltation ruler and diurnal sect benefic, and Saturn as the member of the diurnal sect. Natives are responsible, but can establish healthy boundaries. Those of nocturnal nativities are highly intuitive and psychic but are prone to paranoia, confusion, and depression. They need to learn to establish healthy boundaries. Health could also be a major issue. Economics, banking, entrepreneurship, hospitality and management, and the medical or counseling professions are the careers best suit for natives of this placement.
  9. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Leo: Saturn and the Sun are in mutual reception by domicile but in opposition. Once more both planets are in their debilities, thus natives cannot fully experience the benefits of this placement. The placement endows natives with brilliant and highly aware minds. However, natives are polarizing: you either love them or hate them. Internally natives both want and despise attention. They are both the rebel and the dictator. Natives may report experiencing the extremes of renown and disgrace. There is also an issue with the father or dealing with authority figures. Those of diurnal nativities reap the benefits of this placement as both planets are members of the diurnal sect and also in mutual reception by triplicity. Natives possess excellent negotiation skills and may become talented leaders or managers. They are comfortable with the limelight. For those born at night, natives may suffer from low self-esteem and insecurities. The polarity of being the rebel or/and the dictator strengthens on some natives as a compensatory mechanism. Over-all, natives excel in careers that require strong leadership skills.
  10. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Virgo: The Sun is averse to Saturn, and this can bring about blind spots regarding vitality and prime motivation. Mercury’s influence makes natives systematic, strategic, analytical, practical, and grounded but also anxious and pedantic. They may also display remarkable emotional control and detachment. People with this placement can be health conscious and are likely into health trends. Those born during the day are highly intelligent, organized, and formal. However, they can be perfectionists and obsessive neat freaks. With Saturn as the sect malefic, self-criticism intensifies for those of nocturnal nativities. The placement also augurs hypochondria. Careers in the sciences, medicine, accounting, and management are the best options for this placement.
  11. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Libra: These natives are your natural diplomats and disputants. Venus’ rulership over Saturn endows social graces and politeness. Albeit appearing refined and having an agreeable disposition, these natives are firm and willful. Saturn’s best quality of impartiality appears with it in the sign of its exaltation, and the Sun in Saturn’s domicile makes natives impersonal. For those born during the day, Saturn becomes even more powerful as it gains triplicity rulership, and this makes them strategic and cerebral. While for those born at night, Saturn in its exaltation and as the sect malefic makes natives strict and authoritative. Mercury’s influence as the Sun’s and Saturn’s triplicity ruler makes natives eloquent and highly intelligent. However, with Venus as the ruler of Saturn and sect benefic predisposes the natives to pleasures and romance. Natives excel as lawyers, negotiators, politicians, and diplomats. The field of marketing and psychology appeals to the natives.
  12. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Scorpio: Mars rules Saturn when it is in Scorpio, and this imbibes those with Sun in Aquarius with tenacity and immense will power. These natives swing between emotionally detached and intense. They are talented critical thinkers, but this also makes them naturally mistrustful, especially with authority figures. Natives may have unusual interests that lean on the macabre. For those born during the day, natives lean on being emotionally detached and the critical mind sharpens. While for those born at night, Mars takes the helm as both the domicile and triplicity ruler of Saturn, making natives emotionally intense. Natives’ morbid disposition and tendency to rebel is apparent. Careers fit for this placement are in the military, law enforcement, the forensic sciences, the social sciences, business, finance, risk management, medicine and surgery, and paranormal research.
  13. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Sagittarius: Natives have a strong regard for ethics and the spirit of the law with Jupiter at the helm. The individual may be highly aware and spiritual. Intellectuals, they are broad-minded, knowledgeable, and possess excellent communication skills. Saturn in Jupiter’s diurnal domicile balances Saturn’s cold, and this is especially prominent for those of diurnal births, making the natives friendlier. The Sun and Saturn are also in mutual reception by triplicity, and this enhances the natives’ charisma and impartiality. These natives are your natural leaders and regard both the letter and the spirit of the law. For those born at night, Jupiter is the domicile and triplicity ruler of Saturn, and this can enhance the natives’ spirituality. They are deeply reflective. However, with Saturn as the sect malefic, natives can be strict as they regard the law’s letter than that of its spirit. Counseling, education, law, law enforcement, political sciences, psychology, philosophy, management, marketing, and economics are the best career options.
  14. Sun in Aquarius with Saturn in Capricorn: These are your ambitious Aquarians, but are not obvious as they appear amiable and unassuming. In fact, these natives behave or may have similar aspirations to Capricorns. People know them for their independence, practicality, exceptional intelligence and inventiveness. They both have their head on the clouds and their feet firmly planted on the ground. Like those with Saturn in Taurus, these natives are your natural industrialists. For those born during the day, the natives are ambitious, disciplined, hardworking and persistent. Clarity of thought is their best asset. They are firm in what they know and what they believe in. For those of nocturnal births, Saturn as the sect malefic suggests natives may be strict. They are notably serious and are also stoic in the face of adversity with the Moon as Saturn’s triplicity ruler. Mercury as the Sun’s triplicity enhances the natives’ critical thinking faculties. Law & law enforcement, political sciences, management, economics, accounting, finance, the physical sciences, medicine, and engineering are career areas that may interest the natives.

Regardless of one’s Sun sign, this Moon sign adds color and depth to the personality of the native. We associate the Moon and its condition with the native’s mind and emotional well-being. The influence of the Moon will be apparent for nocturnal nativities.

The Moon’s placement in Aquarius is interesting, as Aquarius is the Eighth sign in the Thema Mundi with Cancer Rising. In this house, it deprives the Moon of a sight of its home. It is also in the shadowy place of death and debts, thus the Moon is dealing with dangers and the unknowns. In the diurnal domicile of Saturn, the Moon, a nocturnal planet, feels alienated and trapped. Therefore, it is not uncommon for natives to report feelings of being an outcast. However, the Moon can gaze upon Taurus, the sign of its exaltation, by square, thus there is this desire to break free and move forward.

When we consider the needs of the native relative to the position of the Moon in the Thema Mundi, the Moon in Aquarius needs freedom to feel secure. Like those with the Moon in Capricorn, astrologers peg the Moon in Aquarius as inclined to feel a sense of lack because of their ruler Saturn. In Aquarius, the Moon is in the sign of the Sun’s detriment, thus natives may feel this sense of lack of identity and they compensate by being the unique one or by marching to the beat of their own drum. They also display this as extreme emotional detachment. However, the Moon’s aspect to Mercury or lack thereof is important in ruling out the over-all psychological makeup of the native.

In Aquarius, the Moon is peregrine and has bare face dignity. Below is a list of the Moon in Aquarius—Saturn combinations.

  1. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Aquarius: Astrologers regard the conjunction of the Moon and Saturn as difficult as their energies are different. It is challenging as the Moon, a planet known for its emotional expressiveness, meets Saturn, the planet that denies or perhaps rejects the existence of feelings. However, Saturn receives the Moon in its diurnal and airy home, thus it at least acknowledges the significations the Moon carries, one of which is emotions. With Saturn’s nature in Aquarius intellectual, it understands the Moon through rationality and logic. Therefore, natives of this placement are prone to intellectualization of emotions. To the outsider, people see them as impersonal and rational. These natives excel as psychotherapists or counselors as they are impartial or non-judgmental. Internally, the placement augurs natives wanting to break free. The emotional detachment is prominent for those born during the day. While for natives born at night, with Saturn as the sect malefic, natives can be emotionally cold bordering on callousness. Mercury takes the helm as the Moon’s and Saturn’s triplicity ruler and this endows natives with exceptional intelligence and creativity.
  2. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Pisces: Saturn in a water sign strengthens the Moon because of its affinity with the Moon being a watery planet. However, with the Moon and Saturn averse to each other, natives show emotional detachment, yet they are capable of deep empathy. These natives possess powerful creativity and imagination. For those of diurnal nativities, people see them as having their own world. They also have a tendency to dissociate. Natives born at night possess rich imagination and powerful intellect with Mercury as the triplicity ruler of the Moon; although Mercury’s influence exacerbates the moodiness. However, with Saturn as the sect malefic in a water sign, those of nocturnal births may suffer from confusion and the lack of boundaries.
  3. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Aries: With the Moon’s dispositor, Saturn, in its fall but in the sign of the Sun’s exaltation, we expect the natives to face challenges in achieving emotional fulfillment by seeking an identity. These natives are the stereotypical Aquarian rebel and disruptor of which has its roots in the native’s desire to stand out. However, there is an ease in Saturn’s debility for those of diurnal births as natives respect and can effectively set boundaries. Mars, as the sect malefic, makes natives liable for impulsiveness and anger. For those born at night, natives may report feelings of low self-worth with Saturn, as the sect malefic is in its fall. The problem with authority figures also exacerbates. However, with Jupiter, as Saturn’s triplicity ruler could also make natives deeply reflective and philosophical.
  4. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Taurus: Here, the Moon and Saturn are in mutual reception by ruler and exaltation. Saturn is in the Moon’s exaltation, while the Moon is in Saturn’s diurnal home. The mutual reception endows natives with remarkable emotional resilience, persistence and willfulness. People may see natives as single-minded. However, the square aspect shows the conflict between what the mind and the physical body want. These natives achieve emotional security when they can manage their desires. With Saturn as the domicile and triplicity ruler of the Moon and Venus as the domicile and triplicity ruler of Saturn, the natives lean on pursuing materialistic and worldly endeavor. Self-actualization or contentment is what those of nocturnal births seek with Saturn exalting the Moon and being in its triplicity. Natives have a well-developed intuition. However, with Saturn as the sect malefic, the single-mindedness becomes prominent. These natives can be possessive.
  5. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Gemini: Gemini is a human and double-bodied sign, and Saturn’s presence in the sign makes those born with the placement emotionally complex. These natives are moody and their interests waxes and wane. However, with the Moon, getting the support of its dispositor facilitates emotional stability and the ease of expression. With Saturn in Mercury’s domicile, the natives rationalize emotions. Saturn and the Moon in human, vocal, and social signs sharpens the intellect and endows natives with wit and eloquence. For those born during the day, Saturn, in its triplicity, brings about stability and clarity of judgment. They are impersonal, impartial, and display profound intelligence. With Mercury at the helm for those born at night, the natives possess powerful intellect and excellent communication skills. They are also highly intuitive. However, Saturn, as the sect malefic, may cause developmental delays, especially in the areas of speech and cognition. Natives may experience thought blocks.
  6. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Cancer: The Moon and Saturn are in mutual reception by domicile, but it will not be as beneficial because both planets are averse to each other. These natives are less detached than any of the other Moon in Aquarius – Saturn combination, especially with Saturn in Jupiter’s exaltation. With that said, natives are caring, giving, and empathetic. They also possess powerful intuition. However, this type of mutual reception augurs a coping mechanism involving the intellectualization and rationalization of emotions. The sect influences emotional expressiveness. For those of diurnal birth, natives will probably lean on being impersonal and rational. While those born at night, the Moon becomes powerful with it as the sect light, thus natives incline to being in touch with their emotions. However, with Saturn as the sect malefic, this can cause problems in self-esteem and establishing personal boundaries.
  7. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Leo: Once more, Saturn is in one of the Sun’s essential dignity, and this time it is in the sign of his domicile. With Saturn in Leo, the natives’ emotional fulfillment comes from the need to stand out. These natives are charismatic and influential. They also possess the capacity to lead and manage, as they have the knack for understanding the needs of the public or the people they manage. The predilection for being in the spotlight strengthens for those born during the day with Saturn in the Sun’s triplicity and domicile. While for those born at night, Jupiter is Saturn’s triplicity ruler and Mercury is the Moon’s triplicity ruler. With that said, natives are eloquent, highly intelligent and aware. They can be deeply philosophical. Unlike their diurnal counterpart, these natives do not seek the spotlight. However, with Saturn as the sect malefic may dampen the self-esteem.
  8. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Virgo: The Moon and Saturn are averse, and with Mercury ruling Saturn augurs apprehensions. In order to appease this natural listlessness, natives establish routines and they attain emotional fulfillment when things go according to their regimen. These folks are highly intelligent and practical. They also possess exceptional critical thinking skills. However, these people dislike non sense and may judge things according to its usefulness. Natives of diurnal births can be hyperrational. For those born at night, Mercury’s influence strengthens and this makes the natives adaptable, perceptive, and helpful. With Saturn as the sect malefic, natives may suffer from psychosomatic illnesses or hypochondriasis.
  9. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Libra: Natives attain emotional fulfillment when they engage in meaningful and productive discussions. Venus’ rulership on Saturn endows refinement and tact. They possess exceptional intelligence and the gift of gab. For those born during the day, we see emotional detachment and impartiality among the natives, with Saturn in its exaltation and as triplicity ruler of the sign. While for those born at night, Mercury takes the helm as both the Moon’s and Saturn’s triplicity ruler. With that said, the native’s intelligence and creativity are its hallmark traits. With Saturn as the sect malefic, natives may have a severe outlook and can be emotionally cold.
  10. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Scorpio: Scorpio is the sign of the Moon’s fall, thus they need someone to trust in order to feel secure. Mars, as the domicile ruler of Saturn, endows natives with a powerful willpower but also makes the natives restless. Saturn in a superior square to the Moon shows the challenge in expressing emotions and dealing with authority figures. The desire to break free becomes powerful, thus natives are prone to rebellion or going against the norm. The natives’ interest in the occult is prominent. For those born during the day, Saturn’s influence becomes more powerful, thus natives may feel the heaviness, but the desire to break free also gets intense with Mars as the sect malefic. However, these natives are responsible and can work tirelessly in pursuit of their goals and something they are truly passionate about. Saturn, as the sect malefic and Mars taking the helm as Saturn’s domicile and triplicity ruler, amplify the natives’ emotional intensity for those born at night. There is a predisposition to depression and paranoia, thus trust is important for these natives.
  11. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Sagittarius: The need for freedom becomes powerful with this placement. Natives also seek to expand their social networks. These individuals are lawful and philosophical, thus people with this combination are likely believers of fair play. Saturn in Jupiter’s diurnal domicile makes natives skeptical in matters of faith and religion. For those born during the day, the Moon in Saturn’s diurnal home and triplicity and Jupiter as the domicile ruler and sect benefic counteracts the Moon’s inherent depression and endows the natives with a powerful interest in laws and an inclination to philosophy. Natives can clearly see what they truly want in life and can follow it with zeal. The placement predisposes natives of nocturnal births to restlessness and directionlessness. However, the intuition could be well-developed and there is an inclination to practice deep spirituality.
  12. Moon in Aquarius with Saturn in Capricorn: Where Saturn is at home is also where the Moon suffers its detriment. Saturn in Capricorn, averse to the Moon, exacerbates this lack as it predisposes natives to compensate by hyperrationality and emotional dissociation. Despite this, these individuals are smart, hardworking, organized, and doggedly persistent. To feel secure, natives need to accomplish whatever they set their minds into. Natives of diurnal births are hyperrational, driven, and productive, with Saturn taking the helm. They may have trouble in expressing their feelings. While for natives born at night, Saturn is in the Moon’s triplicity and the Moon in Mercury’s triplicity facilitates the ease of emotional expression. The combination produces profound and creative thinkers. With the Moon averse to its dispositor, natives may report feelings of being unsupported. Natives are also prone to crippling depression and hopelessness.

Modern Astrology assigns the Ascendant sign as the facade of the native to the world. However, with Traditional Astrology, the Ascendant sign is your actual zodiac sign and the ruler’s placement will dictate how one looks and behaves. With Saturn, as the ruler of the Ascendant, I will detail the placement of Saturn throughout the signs and houses. However, we remember that Mercury’s and the Moon’s placement will add color and depth to the psychological make-up of the native.

  1. Aquarius Ascendant with Saturn in Aquarius: Using the whole sign houses, Saturn is in the First House, signifying the physical body and defining the character of the person. Its placement also tells about the native’s Twelfth Whole-sign house of challenges, sorrows, but also of spirituality. In Aquarius, Saturn is in its diurnal domicile, thus natives may have a robust constitution. However, it is noteworthy that Saturn is a cold and dry planet and in a hot and moist sign makes natives susceptible to illnesses. Saturn, as the Lord of the Twelfth House in the Ascendant, suggests natives may at least encounter confinement because of an illness; it also makes the natives cool, aloof and deeply reflective. Those born during the day will have Saturn as the Almuten of Libra, the Ninth Whole-sign House, and this endows exceptional intelligence, eloquence, tact, refinement, and impartiality. Natives may display an interest and talent in the academe, publishing, and the law. They are skeptical of religion and spirituality. However, Saturn’s rulership over the Twelfth Whole-sign House suggests they can be deeply spiritual. For those born at night, Saturn, as the sect malefic, can exacerbate the health problems and may suffer from distraught from hidden enemies. Mercury is Saturn’s triplicity ruler, and this sharpens the intellect and enhances the imagination. These natives think outside of the box and are inventive. However, they are prone to depression should there be no aspect from the benefics.
  2. Aquarius Ascendant with Saturn in Pisces: Saturn in the Second Whole-sign House shows that the natives’ likely motivation is the acquisition of wealth. Despite Saturn an infortune and ruling the Twelfth House of loss bringing financial challenges, losses, and delays, but with it in the under the power of the benefics Jupiter and Venus blesses natives with financial luck and endows a generous nature. However, depending on how strong Jupiter or Venus are, and should there be a lack of discipline, natives are prone to squandering gains. For those born during the day, Jupiter as the domicile ruler and sect benefic and Venus as the Almuten of Pisces makes natives fortunate in health, law, financial, and academic/spiritual matters, especially should Jupiter and/or Venus be in the/their sign of its domicile or exaltation. However, natives may suffer setbacks and disgrace in those areas if Jupiter and/or Venus suffer affliction. While for those born at night, Saturn, as the sect malefic, augurs low self-esteem and predisposition to illnesses. Venus takes the helm as the exaltation ruler and nocturnal sect benefic, and this produces profound and gifted thinkers and artists. The interest in spirituality strengthens, and the influence makes natives amorous. Natives progress and gain in careers involving teaching, the law, the arts, and real estate.
  3. Aquarius Ascendant with Saturn in Aries: Mars and the Sun rules Saturn and in the Third Whole-sign House make natives bright, communicative and straightforward. However, with Saturn also as the ruler of the Twelfth Whole-sign House and in the sign of its fall, suggests the natives’ lack of discretion and impulsiveness may tarnish the reputation. The rulership of Mars and Saturn’s debility in the Third Whole-sign House suggests of natives’ relationship with the siblings as contentious. Natives are liable to anger, distempers and quarrels, especially should the individual be born during the day with Mars as the sect malefic. Those born at night are highly intelligent and less liable to temper problems with Jupiter as the triplicity ruler of Saturn, but these folks may suffer from low self-esteem and are prone to depression. There could be developmental delays as it pertains to learning and speaking earlier in life, with Saturn as the sect malefic. Over-all, natives are prone to lawsuits if they are not careful.
  4. Aquarius Ascendant with Saturn in Taurus: With Saturn in the Fourth Whole-sign House, natives strive for a stable and comfortable home. However, Saturn, as the ruler of the Twelfth Whole-sign House, suggests problems at home or with family life. In the domicile of Venus and exaltation of the Moon, financial and emotional security are the concerns of natives. These natives are patient, persistent and willful. For those born during the day, Venus takes the helm as Saturn’s ruler, and this endows natives with beauty, wit, charm, tact and diplomacy. Natives may strive for luxury and comfort. Those born at night are beautiful, artistic, nurturing, and highly intuitive with Venus as the sect benefic and the Moon as the exaltation plus triplicity ruler of Saturn. However, with Saturn as the sect malefic, inertia, sluggishness and the lack of ambition may become a problem.
  5. Aquarius Ascendant with Saturn in Gemini: Saturn is under Mercury’s lordship, and natives of this placement possess exceptional intelligence and communication skills. The placement also makes natives strategic and cunning. Saturn in the Fifth Whole-sign House suggests the predisposition and the natural talent in speculation. However, since Saturn rules the Twelfth Whole-sign House and with it in a barren sign, natives may have challenges and delays with sex, child-bearing and rearing children. If Mercury afflicts Saturn, natives may lose fortune because of carelessness in gambling and other speculative activities. For those born during the day, Saturn gaining triplicity ruler enhances the physical vitality, mental sharpness and decisiveness. Natives are careful in speculative activities, albeit excelling in spotting and analyzing patterns and trends with Saturn as the Almuten of Libra, the Ninth Whole-sign House. The placement also suggests they are natural counselors and diplomats. Mercury takes the helm as the domicile and nocturnal triplicity ruler of Saturn, and this sharpens the mind and makes natives eloquent. These natives excel in games of strategy. Once more, with Saturn as the sect malefic and ruler of the Twelfth Whole-sign House, there may be delays and losses involving children and speculation.
  6. Aquarius Ascendant with Saturn in Cancer: Saturn in the Sixth Whole-sign House suggests the predisposition to illnesses and in the Moon’s domain, this pertains to illnesses connected to the imbalance of body fluids. With Saturn ruling the Twelfth Whole-sign House, natives may suffer confinement because of illnesses. In Cancer, Saturn is in its detriment, and being in the domicile of the Moon makes natives highly intuitive, fiercely protective, and nurturing. In the exaltation of Jupiter, natives are broad-minded, philosophical, helpful and generous. However, natives may suffer from the consequences of having poor boundaries or poor limit setting considering Saturn’s debility. For those born during the day, natives have better health as the heat of the day balances the abundance of moisture. Jupiter, as the sect beneficial and its condition on the chart, eases the affliction of the placement. Saturn’s condition as Libra’s almuten (the Ninth Whole-sign House’s almuten) puts natives at risk for legality problem should they not practice discernment and due diligence. Those of nocturnal births will have the Moon powerful, and it amplifies the natives’ intuition but also augments the potential health problems. It is also not uncommon for natives to catch colds, report fatigue, or psychosomatic disorders. 
  7. Aquarius Ascendant with Saturn in Leo: Natives of this placement express themselves uniquely. Since Saturn is in detriment in Leo and with it in the Seventh Whole-sign house, these individuals have a powerful desire to for validation and to be in relationships or partnerships. With that said, natives can be outspoken and they love to socialize. Depending on where the Sun is at will probably show the native’s interest. With Saturn ruling the Twelfth House, natives are likely to experience hardships and instabilities in relationships and partnerships. For those born during the day, there is an ease in the affliction and this manifests as natives being comfortable in their own skin and offers stability in relationships. Since Saturn is the Almuten of Libra, the Ninth Whole-sign House, they are also prone to problems involving legalities if they do not practice due diligence. While for those born at night, Jupiter is triplicity ruler of Saturn and this makes natives intuitive and spiritual. However, with Saturn as the sect malefic augurs problems in health and the native’s self-esteem. The placement of Saturn in Seventh House as the ruler of the Twelfth House augments the problems in relationships and enemies (both secret and open).
  8. Aquarius Ascendant with Saturn in Virgo: In Mercury’s nocturnal domicile and exaltation, these natives are curious and profoundly intelligent. With Saturn in the Eighth Whole-sign house, these individuals have a strong interest in economics, banking, finance, investment and the occult. Saturn’s placement in the shadowy Eighth suggests natives may feel constantly apprehensive. Since Saturn rules the Twelfth Whole-sign House, the natives may suffer financial loss as it pertains to impulsiveness and debt if they do not practice due diligence in investments.
