Saturn with its beautiful rings, reflects
the organised and strict character of this
planet spirit. It is the last personal planet
that can be seen with the naked eye. Saturn was
the farthest planet from the Sun (and Earth)
as known to the Ancients, and he was regarded
as the “Greater Malefic”, so it was seen as a very
negative influence. The more distant trans-personal
planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto require
the aid of a telescope.
Chronos, the Greek name for Saturn,
is the father of time. In legend,
after death the soul is weighed on scales

of this element. Saturn's ruling astrological
house, is Capricorn, acquiring the tenacity
and persistent nature of this star sign.
