Saturn Number: 8
Saturn rules those born on the 8th, 17th, 26th of any month, or those whose name or destiny number is 8. The qualities of Saturn are most pronounced in people who have a soul number 8. Among the seven most important planets of our Solar System, Saturn is the most distant planet from Earth. Its slow movement is reflected in the Sanskrit name of Shanaichchar. By its nature — it is inert, cold and dry, therefore it is considered the most unfavorable of all the planets of the solar system. Its evil influence can be felt as it passes through the 12, 1, and 2 houses of the Moon. For example, if the Moon is in Taurus in the birth chart, and Saturn is in Aries, Taurus or Gemini, its influence is most clearly observed.
The number 8 defines the realm of practical reality. A person needs him to translate his ideas into concrete form and ensure a better life for himself. Since Saturn performs a full turn on its elliptical path for thirty years, it remains valid in one zodiac sign for two and a half years; and when he passes the three houses above, he influences a person for seven and a half years.
If Saturn is adversely located in the map of a person’s birth, then it makes its owners greedy, painful, gloomy. They constantly suffer from losses and psychosomatic problems caused by disruption of the chemical balance of the body. This is due to the deterioration of the behavior of the wind element (violation of the air flow in the body). Saturn rules the nails, hair, teeth, bones, skeleton, skin and nervous system.
If Saturn is located in the birth chart successfully, it brings wisdom, awareness of right and wrong, sincerity, honesty, love of justice, non-attachment to any things, longevity, fame, power, leadership and organizational skills.
The view of Saturn is not beneficent. Saturn is a planet of limitation. If he is unsuccessful in the birth chart, he brings obstacles, procrastination, humiliation, hostility, bad karma, litigation, and jail. It makes people lonely, pessimistic, fearful, prone to premature aging, drug addiction, suicidal tendencies.
Saturn, the planet of darkness, controls the dark side of human nature, the subconscious, the awareness of right and wrong. Saturnians do not like discipline; these are rebels, lawbreakers. They behave like old men and look much older than they really are. This is because Saturn rules old age, it is often considered the old planet. Saturn’s friends are Mercury, Venus, Uranus and Neptune, the enemies are the Sun, the Moon and Mars, and Jupiter is neutral towards him.
