Omens are mysterious signs associated with the stars and planets indicating the shape of things to come. Since time immemorial various omens have been associated with Saturn.

Saturn is the star of the sun. Its position and its movement around the sun send significant messages in the form of omens. Saturn wields significant influence when some changes take place around the sun. It was felt in the ancient times that when a halo surrounded the sun, there would be heavy rains.

When the Saturn entered the Moon, this omen indicated that a kingdom of Truth would be established. Every body would speak the truth. There would a reign of welfare, peace and prosperity everywhere in the world.
When a planet changed its color opposite the moon while the Saturn had entered it, lions would die, cattle would be murdered and the traffic of the land would come to halt. The change of color probably meant the apparent dimming in the brightness.

When the sun stood in the place of the moon, the omen indicated that the king of the land would be secure on his throne and he would dispense the law with justice.

The nature of omens occurring in the life a person depends upon their zodiac sign and the nature and personality of its ruling planet.

The best way to understand the Omens of Saturn is to learn about his nature and personality by going back to period of Roman history and mythology when the deity ruled the Roman Empire.

Saturn is considered one of the most ancient gods of the Roman pantheon. He influenced the history of the country through multifarious roles and functions.

He is regarded as the god of growth, affluence, agriculture, wealth and emancipation. He is known to have enforced order, discipline and the rule of law by eliminating the elements of chaos and confusion. His rule is known as the golden period of peace and prosperity.

It is said that once the Saturn drew near to the Moon. The omen was interpreted as lucky for the king because the sun is the star of the king and Saturn is the star of the sun.

It was also believed that when the sun reached its zenith and went forward, it was an omen that the reign of all-powerful king would last very long. When a halo surrounded the sun in the morning, the omen indicated a month of heavy rains and floods. So this omen was a warning to the king and also the people to be aware of the coming deluge.

When the Saturn stood within the halo that surrounded the moon, the omen indicated that there would lots of robberies. Also, when the Mars reached Saturn, there would be famine and the cattle would die. Since Saturn was the star of the kingdom of Akkad, it was a lucky omen both for the king and the people.

Romans celebrated Saturn’s age by holding a festival, Saturnalia. The festivities started on December 17 and continued up to 23 of the month. Both the state and the subjects took a break from all the business activities and duties. It was marked by a carnival atmosphere.

All military operations and executions were suspended. Large public feasts were held in an atmosphere of general bonhomie. People visited each other and exchanged gifts and presents.

 The festival was particularly important for slaves as they were not only set free during the period of celebrations, but were accorded the privilege to share the table with the royal family.

Saturn, like other planets, radiates his influence, which appears in form of different omens as it moves around the sun or enters various astrological houses.

Omens of Saturn are visible primarily during two periods


1. The omens appear during the astrological age of Saturn when he rules the entire planet and casts shadows on the elements of nature and thereby on the conditions of the people.

There are heavy rains, storms, earthquakes and upheavals, which in turn, influence the state of agriculture, the general health and social and financial conditions of the people.

The age of Saturn is marked by civil liberties, egalitarianism and free speech. People, by and large, enjoy abundance and prosperity.  Agriculture is the mainstay of the economy. Since Saturn is the god of agriculture, the era experiences abundant rains and the granaries overflow with agricultural produce of various types. People do not experience scarcities or famines.

2. The omens of Saturn manifest their influence on the nature of the people, who are born from December 22 to January 19 under the zodiac sign of Capricorn with goat as its symbol. Saturnians or the Capricorns are quiet, pragmatic, goal oriented and hardworking people.


There are two types of goat people. The first type is symbolized by mountain goat and the other by garden goat.

The mountain goat keeps its head and eyes grounded to the earth. It is not easily swayed by needless emotions and sentimentalities. Since it is progressive and hardworking, it continues to raise its benchmarks for success.

The garden goat, however, loves fun and happiness, but within the confines of its domain- garden- where it resides and works. She is not ambitious like her mountain counterpart.

Nonetheless, both types of goats are hardworking, non-combative, patient, dedicated and perseverant.
