The astrological thesis of Lal Kitab describes Saturn as a
serpent, whose head or mouth is Rahu and Ketu is its tail. If
ketu is posited in earlier houses than Saturn, the latter becomes
a great benefic for the native. However, if the position is
otherwise, the Saturn throws highest poisonous results on the
native. Further, Saturn never gives malefic effects if posited in
houses of Jupiter i.e. 2, 5, 9 or 12, whereas Jupiter provides
bad results if posited in the house of Saturn.
Saturn is considered good in houses 2nd , 3rd and
7th to 12th, whereas 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th houses are bad for
Saturn. Sun, Moon and Mars are its enemies, Venus, Mercury and
Rahu are friends and Jupiter and Ketu are neutral to it. Saturn
gets exalted in 7th house and the 1st house is the house of its
debilitation. Venus and Jupiter placed together act like Saturn
in that house. Similarly Mars and Mercury placed in a single
house act like Saturn in that house. In the former case Saturn
behaves like Ketu, while in the latter case it behaves like
Venus gets destroyed if Saturn is being expected by
the Sun in any horoscope. The aspect of Venus on Saturn causes
loss of money and wealth, but the aspect of Saturn on Venus
proves highly beneficial. Collision of Saturn and Moon causes
operation of the eyes of the native. Saturn gives good results if
posited in house earlier than sun.
Saturn can never give malefic results if posited
with Sun or Jupiter in a single house, but highly adverse results
would follow if posited with Moon or Mars in any house. Saturn
releases its poisonous results on the sign and Mars, if it is
posited in 1st house, on Mars only if posited in 3rd house, on
moon if posited in 4th house, on sun if posited in 5th house, and
on Mars in posited in 3rd house. Saturn in 3rd house deprives the
native of the accumulation of cash money and kills the children
of the native when posited in 5th house and 10th house is empty.
It becomes highly benefic in 12th house if friendly planets are
posited in 2nd house. Saturn provides very good results if placed
in houses 1 to 7 on the condition that 10th house is empty.
Saturn in 1st house and sun in 7th, 10th or 11th houses causes
all sorts of troubles for native's wife. Combination of Mars
and Saturn gives adverse results al through.
