Saturn in the 6th house

 Saturn is the planet of hard work, responsibility and goal-setting. The nature of this luminary partly corresponds to the astrological meaning of the Sixth house of the horoscope. This field is responsible for the performance of daily duties, for work and the ability to obey. Such a person takes the service very seriously and responsibly. 

He understands various instructions and regulations, knows the charter and tries to conduct his activities in accordance with the instructions of his superiors. In addition, the circumstances of the 6th house will tell about the health of the owner of the horoscope. Saturn can produce lingering, chronic illnesses that are difficult to treat. And yet, with due elaboration of this planetary principle, a person becomes very attentive to his health, does not neglect preventive measures and monitors the condition and well-being of his loved ones.

SATURN IN THE SIXTH HOUSE, well-aspected, gives the person ability to handle employees and workmen in general in a most efficient manner, for though such a person is quiet and subdued he is at the same time firm and serious. He has a way about him which employees respect and which calls for instant obedience to his commands without causing the resentment called forth by a blustering, bellowing Mars.

When Saturn is afflicted in the Sixth House it means a great deal of sickness in the life and if in a weak sign like Virgo the person is in danger of becoming a chronic invalid, for one he is in the grip of sickness the recuperative powers are so poor it is almost impossible for him to recover. The nature of the principal illness will depend upon the sign that is on the cusp of the Sixth House or of the Twelfth, but usually with such people many complications set in after this. Also a person with an afflicted Saturn in the Sixth House finds it almost impossible to secure employment and it is evident that such a person has indeed a hard life, being unable to earn a living when able to be about.

A Sixth House Saturn suggests that your career or area of responsibility in the world relates to efficiency in your job or career. In order to succeed in your social position in the world you will have to gain knowledge and expertise associated with the correct attitude to work, employers, employees, and co-workers.

Life-experience will force you to learn valuable lessons related to the development of a sound business sense and a well-structured, accurate, precise, practical and efficient way of working. Health and hygiene matters are stressed and are of great importance to your overall sense of general well-being. With this placing of Saturn, sickness, lost opportunities and disappointments are sometimes experienced through circumstances over which there is little or no control. Your profession could be in science, engineering or other fields requiring detailed skill and precision.
