Saturn in Libra
Saturn is in exaltation here. This means that issues like duty, obligation, cooperation and law are given greater merit before the cosmic court. Since Saturn represents the principle of agnoia, and Venus, relationships; it is an indication that the native will have respect for issues of privacy and confidentiality. As a result, in public they are discrete and keep their own counsel. It indicates the ability to organize people into cooperative heirarchical social structures. This produces a more lasting achievement than any one individual can hope to accomplish. It is common for these natives to reach positions of power and prestige through promotion by others. This is an especially good position for those who wish to be politicians, lawyers, judges, business and corporate professionals.
In a diurnal chart, the heat and dryness bring out the more positive side of Saturn. The dryness gives the native the ability to make fine distinctions in the sphere of Venus. This shows a talent for creating public policy and law. If Saturn is also above the horizon, it is in hayz, and shows a high probability of attaining a position of high rank and prestige before the public. Leadership ability is present.
In a nocturnal chart, the cool and moist of night make it more difficult for Saturn to see fine distinctions in policy. Often the letter of the law is followed without understanding the spirit of the law because at night the agnoia is powerful. This can lead to strictness in adherence to policy and a lack of forgiveness for those who transgress. They often climb to positions of middle management only to run into a "glass ceiling".
