Important things to know about Saturn Exalted

Saturn is one of the Natural malefic planet in astrology. Unless or otherwise Saturn is an ascendant lord for a person, it is always meant to produce malefic results. Though Saturn is widely considered as the most malefic and dangerous planet it is infact a Saintly Planet. Saturn is a highly spiritual planet, the role of saturn is to cleanse ones sin’s and past karmic impressions and free them from chain of re-births. He is responsible for giving judgment on basis of ones karma.

All bad karma of a person will come into effect during saturn’s period in his chart, or during saturn transits to his moon sign. If a person suffers badly in saturn ruling period (called dasha’s or bukthi’s or anthra) then it means he is paying for his karma’s done in this life or the previous ones !

Saturn rules signs Aquarius and Capricorn.  If a person belongs to any one of this ascendant, then they are 100% ruled by saturn. Ascendant is called the sign rising on the eastern horizon during one’s birth. Ascendant is the most important factor in one’s life. Ascendant lord is considered to be the soul benefactor of a person. When saturn is ascendant lord, then such person are not affected by saturn during saturn periods, since saturn is the highest benefactor for them.

Saturn is a windy planet, hence rules the vayu tattva in the universe. Ageism is also caused by saturn, when saturn is strong and benefic then such person will be robust in health and live longer life and vice versa when saturn is weak and posited as malefic.

Saturn loves yoga, meditation and ascetics. To become a ascetic, a person should have a strong saturn influence in their life, otherwise they cannot be ascetics.  Saturn rules Saturday, in numerology its denomination is number 8. Saturn is a contracting planet who contracts our desires, our karma’s and our illusions thereby providing wisdom, in the same way jupiter is expanding planet which expands ones wealth, health, knowledge and luxury.

Saturn is the estranged son of Sun, Sun and Saturn are considered to enemies which can be clearly seen as Sun’s exaltation sign aries is saturn’s debilitation sign and Saturn’s exaltation sign libra is Sun’s debilitation sign.

Saturn is extremely strong in its exaltation sign Libra, when Saturn is exalted in a person’s chart, then they are considered to be extremely fortunate and such persons are near to attaining enlightenment in their life.

Venus is the most friendly planet for saturn, its evident that number 8 borns and 6 borns will be friendly to each other, and will be attracted to each other. Venus is the fortune bringing planet for ascendants aquarius and capricorn.

Unless a saturn ruled  person is practicing yoga or meditation, they will tend to be extremist in nature, by being lazy or hyper active, timid or violent, over confidence or lack of confidence, empathy or sadism, love or hate, peace or terrorism. Saturn brings extreme traits in persons to make them understand that the purpose of life is to throw both Rajas Guna and Tamas Guna but to be in Sattva Guna. We will discuss about gunas in next post. But Sattva guna means being in neutral state and taking everything as null.

During saturn periods, one must practice yoga or meditation to avoid ill effects of saturn. karma’s can be burnt only through yoga’s , thats the point of planet saturn.


  1. my ascendent is aquarius….and i am born on 8th june… is saturn malefic to me then ? ? ….i am having delays and denials…in most of the things i do!! 🙁

    thanx..god bless u

  2. my ascendent is aquarius, my moon is capricorn, my fadic 8, born on d 8th zodiac sign (i.e) scorpio, my saturn is in 11th house and in sagittarius.
    And i want to change my name as Koyyel Manotosh Ghwsh. Is it good or shall i use only Koyyel Ghwsh? And is saturn malefic? Should i wear blue sapphire? thanks in advance.

  3. continued #3
    Another thing is, am wearing a diamond 1/4th carat on my first finger right hand since last 2 months. will it help anyways??

    • for aquarius ascendant, jupiter is lord of 2 and 11, its the money giving planet. yellow topaz is lucky, but one should see the position of jupiter and its significators. Same way, blue sapphire should not be wear, as saturn is lord of 1st and 12th house. One can wear diamond, as venus is raj yoga causing planet, but again see where venus is posited in ur chart. wearin a gem stone is very tricky, careful observation is needed.

    • In your horoscope we see that your lagan is Libra and Rashi is Gemini. You are born under the Mrigasira Nakshatra ruled by Mars. Saturn is the yogakarka planet in your horoscope. However Saturn is not likely to give good results as Saturn is debilitated in your horoscope. Doing the remedies of Saturn is strongly recommended.

    Iam currently Wearing Blue sapphire.Is it ok to wear Emerald along with it?Also how will be my career and married life?

    • As per your horoscope you are Taurus rising and Saturn becomes the Yogakarka planet in your horoscope. Therefore Saturn Stone Blue Sapphire can be worn. Also Mercury is the planet for intelligence, confidence and planning. It is the lord of 5th house and 2nd house. Hence Mercury stone Emerald can also be worn. You are soon going to enter Saturn Mahadasha and Saturn period will be much better than the present period for career.

    • As Saturn is in the 11th house of gains, it is good position for Saturn to be. However as Saturn is in Scorpio, the sign ruled by inimical Mars, Saturn losses its powers. Therefore you should do the following remedies to strengthen Saturn.

      1. Wear Blue Sapphire in Silver on your right hand middle finger.
      2. Visit Shani temple every Saturdays

    • Looking at your natal chart we see that Saturn is 8th lord and hence it is Malefic. Saturn being the 8th lord in your horoscope will not give you good results. It is the planet which will give obstacles, hindrances and delays. Your ascendant is Cancer. As per your horoscope, your mahadasha of Saturn is going on till 2026 and hence Saturn remedies should be done.

    • Saturn is a benefic planet for you as it is the lagan lord. However as Saturn is posited in the inimical sign Leo, it is weak. You should strengthen Saturn by doing its remedies. Your Saturn mahadasha starts in March 2018. You should wear Blue Sapphire in Silver on your right hand Index finger on Saturday Morning.


    • For Gemini ascendant Saturn is the 9th lord, means that the lord of the Bhagyastan or lord of the house of destiny. Saturn is a benefic planet and you should wear Neelam or Blue Sapphire in Silver on your right-hand Index finger on Saturday Morning.


    • Ruled by number 9 and the planet Mars, you are intelligent, courageous, energetic and an enthusiastic individual. You are a warm and sober person and always ready to help others, but you need to check your tendency to behave fickle –minded, moody and extravagant at times.


  17. Hi my kundali has 7th house saturn and i m libra (man) ancedent ..whether good or bad for me and having kal sarp yog also .
    my DOB:- 08/10/1983 19:45 hrs faridabad haryana

    • In your horoscope, we see that Saturn the planet of obstacles is posited and not giving good results on the marriage front. Saturn and Moon conjoined in the same house form the vish dosha. There is Kaalsarp dosha in your horoscope and Saturn mahadasha is also going on till Aug 2019. Your horoscope is not good on the marriage front. Doing remedies of Venus and Saturn will help.


        • Planets give results totally on the basis of their chart placement. An exalted Saturn may be bad for someone but the same may be good for other chart. Please provide the date, time and place of birth for horoscope analysis.


          • In your chart we see that Saturn is exalted in the 7th house which is the prime house of marriage and marital happiness. Saturn is conjoined with Moon forming the Vish dosha. The presence of Saturn in the 7th house is never good as it brings obstacles in marriage. You are in the ending period of Saturn Mahadasha which gets completed by August 2019. You should do the Saturn remedies given below.

            1. Read Hanuman Chalisa Daily

            2. Visit Shani temple every Saturdays

  18. I liked this article. I am born on 6/11/1962 at 7.15 AM in Joravarnagar near Surendranagar. Do I have Sasa yoga and Vish yoga? When will I get my own house and happiness?

    • Looking at your natal chart we see that Ketu is conjoined with Saturn and also Moon. There is no Sasa yoga as Saturn although in its own house, is conjoined with Ketu. The Vish dosha is not strong as Saturn and Moon have lot of difference in degrees. You are presently passing through a period of Shani Sade satti. You will certainly have your own house, the period can get delayed due to Sade satti. But chances are strong after 2020. Doing remedies of Saturn are recommended.

  19. Hello sir
    I was born on the 22-09-1954 at 13-41 hrs( afternoon) at Mumbai. I have Saturn in 11 th house exalted with Venus in libra. What are it’s effects and can I wear Blue sapphire?

    • Saturn is the 2nd and 3rd house lord and exalted in the 11th house of gains. It is conjoined with Venus which is 11th and 6th lord in your horoscope. The person will live a life of comforts and luxuries even if he / she has to pick up loans. 6th house indicates debts. You will do a lot of family and others but never reciprocated in the same way. Blue Sapphire is not recommended. The stone you should wear is Yellow Sapphire, wear it life long. You can also wear Ruby on your right hand ring finger on Sunday morning for gains.


  20. Hello Sir,
    DOB 12/24/1977, at 11:30 AM, born in Tiruvalla, Kerala, India
    I started wearing blue sapphire ring but still there are so many difficulties. Is my Saturn exalted? Which house is Saturn in my birth chart and which house is Saturn currently located? What are the effects of Saturn being in the sign of Leo? Any other remedies I need to do?

    • You have asked many questions. I will try to answer all one by one. As per your horoscope, Saturn is the lagna lord as it is the lord of Aquarius. Your Saturn mahadasha is going on. Saturn in your horoscope is in Leo which is its inimical sign and hence Saturn gets weak. Wearing Blue Sapphire is recommended. You are facing difficulty as you are passing through a period of Shani Dhaiyya till February 2020. Doing remedies of Saturn are strongly recommended. You should read Hanuman Chalisa Daily and also visit Shani temple every Saturday.


      Navneet Khanna

    • Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and Saturn in the 11th house which is the house of gains. Indicates a person strong desire to achieve big in life. Also the gets slow results in life as 11th house is the house of fructification of desires. Hardwork, sincerity and dedication is the magic mantra for success.

    • Looking at your natal chart your lagna is Cancer and Rashi is Leo. You are born under the Poorva Phalguni Nakshatra. In your birth chart, Saturn is the lord of the 8th house which makes it the most malefic planet in your horoscope. Saturn mahadasha as you said starts on 24th August 2018. Yes you should do the Saturn Homan. You can recite Saturn mantra “Om Praam Preem Praum Sah Shanichraye Namaha”.
