Quotes[edit]

Each planet takes a certain amount of time to travel thru all 12 signs and return to its original position in any given chart. The Moon takes only a month. The Sun takes a year. … Mercury and Venus stay close to the Sun, so their cycles through all signs are close to the Sun’s. Mars takes longer about two years...Jupiter takes about 12 months to complete a full cycle thru all 12 signs. Saturn takes 28-30 years to complete a full cycle. Because Saturn is a symbol of the wisdom which grows with age, its cycle is particularly important in reflecting our development. Every seven years, Saturn completes a a quarter of the cycle, and we move into a new stage of awareness. ~ Marc Allen
  • The Saturn Cycle is an important part of astrological interpretation. It moves the interpretation into the realm of transits, which takes into account where the planets have travelled since the movement of the birth chart.

  • It is said that the sure antidote of Saturn or Shanee's evil effect is the worship of Lord Hanuman. Scriptures say that when Saturn warned Lord Hanuman about his onset of the Seven and Half Years (w:Sade SatiSaade Saati) [period of bad times], the Monkey Lord accepted the challenge and allowed Saturn to have his play. When the planet dwelled on his head, the Monkey Lord ‘headed’ heavy rocks so viciously that the planet was almost crushed. Similar agony he faced when he tried to dwell on the Monkey Lord’ body and legs. Then the planet had to bow before the Lord, saying that whosoever worshipped Lord Hanuman shall be beyond the evil effect of the planet.

  • SATURN. h: Western astrology's major malefic has a lot to answer for. He forces us to face the essential necessities of life, the obligations to our parents, clan and race we acquire just by being born, and the responsibilities we have to accept if we wish to continue in existence.
    • In: p. 103
  • Saturn is not very demanding really; he actually prefers the bare necessities: simple, uncontaminated food eaten regularly; a clean environment; adequate clothing, physical exertion and pure air; somewhere to live, neither too hot nor too cold; a supporting community or family.
    • In: p. 104
  • In traditional Chinese medicine the emphasis is on the blood and everything it nourishes, and on the process of transportation of material about the body...No wonder Saturn is blamed for degeneration and loss of vital organs. But this occurs either when we grow old, or when we fail to observe Saturn's requirements, by abusing ourselves. In the ordinary way Saturn gives life not death.
    • In: p. 105
  • Secondly, Moon and Saturn (Earth) are different levels of our strength, derived

from adequate nutrition and exercise. Saturn concerns the physical body, Moon its good working order. Sun and, to a lesser extent, Mars (Fire) denote our spirit and ...

  • Saturn transits can be great opportunities for growth: it is the body and all its needs which are ready to move on. Unfortunately, Saturn also brings the probability of reduction of existing standards of life. The harder we cling to them, the harder we must work.

...And these are the names of the males who sprang from the heaven: Oceanus Coeus, Crios, Hyperion, Iapetus, Chronos, who amongst us is called Saturn.... ~ Gilles Quispel.
The last words show that the whole of the planetary spheres is conceived of as a huge cosmic man whose body is composed by seven folds. This explains why the highest planet [Saturn] is associated with the hair, and the lowest planet, the Moon, with the marrow. ~ Gilles Quispel.

  • And from this i.e., Phaneta, they say they were produced substance, prudence, motion and coition, and from these the heavens and the earth were made, From the heaven they say that six males were produced, whom they call Titans; and in the like manner from the earth six females, whom they call Titanides. And these are the names of the males who sprang from the heaven: Oceanus Coeus, Crios, Hyperion, Iapetus, Chronos, who amongst us is called Saturn.

Navagraha or Nine planets as per Hindu astrology - Indian Vedic astrology uses nine planets, which does not include Uranus, Neptune and Pluto but consists of Sun (Ravi), Moon (Chandra), Mars (Mangala), Mercury (Budha), Jupiter (Brihaspati), Venus (Shukra), Saturn (Shani), North Lunar Node (Rahu), and South Lunar Node (Ketu).... ~ Tapan Das
...The Zodiacs in Chinese astrology have a twelve-year cycle. Each year of the Natural cycle is named after one of the original twelve animals.~ Tapan Das

  • Five elements in Chinese philosophy are different from Western and Indian elements. ancient Chinese astronomers called the five major planets by the names of the elements with which they were associated: Venus: metal, Jupiter: wood … Saturn: earth. The Zodiacs in Chinese astrology have a twelve-year cycle. Each year of the Natural cycle is named after one of the original twelve animals.

  • One would expect the Long Count's divisions into blocks of 260 katuns and thirteen baktuns to have some kind of astrological value, since they resonate with the Jupiter-Saturn cycle.

  • The Sun has by far the biggest influence, followed by Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Venus, Mercury, and Mars. Pluto has virtually no effect on cosmic energies. Moon’s effect is mainly due to its gravity and shielding, caused by its proximity to Earth.

  • The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still living parts. The Sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The Moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver for ever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.
