Saturn in the 5th House


When Saturn is in the 5th House, it creates a person who struggles with dullness, lack of intelligence, and difficulties passing exams.

However, it is always important to consider aspects and rulership, because Saturn is capable of giving an excellent mind, due to it’s positive influence on a person’s ability to think logically.

This person, may think slowly and could be excessively pessimistic or overly serious.

Love affairs will be difficult, as the person is likely to feel alone, isolated or misunderstood.

Saturn in the 5th House is bad for wealth, because whatever financial investments the person makes will be spoilt.

There will be little credit from previous lives.  Whatever benefits the person accumulates will be from activities in this life.

If Saturn is afflicted by another malefic, there could be unwanted pregnancies or difficulties carrying a pregnancy to full term.  This condition is reversed if Saturn is aspected by a benefic or good ruling House.
