The planet Saturn often gets a bad rap in astrology. Usually, it is classified as the planet of rules and restrictions. Many people get intimidated by upcoming Saturn transits believing it may bring hardships, more work, or just no fun.

I’d like to challenge that mentality. Saturn may bring challenges, but challenges bring opportunities to learn, grow, and ultimately become a more experienced individual.

Saturn Equals Empowerment

The way I’ve seen Saturn work in my life is through lessons.

Let’s say I forget to pack underwear on a trip, or I mixed up some words in an email and sent without proofreading. You can bet that the next time these situations come up, I’m going to remember to pack everything I need, and I’m especially going to take the time to reread what I wrote.

These are very mediocre examples, and I am certain we’ve all faced harder situations, but as hard as those times may have been, I like to think back and consider how grateful I am for them because they taught me something that changed me for the better.

Saturn empowers us, and wherever Saturn shows up in your chart, it can teach something unique about your inner strength.

Where is Saturn in Your Birth Chart?

Once you know what symbol (or glyph) you are looking for, you will need your birth chart. If you don’t have yours, you can use our free birth chart generator to get one.

When you have your chart, locate Saturn based on its symbol.

Now you can tell what zodiac sign your Saturn is located in. We will share the same Saturn sign with those who are close in age with us. Since Saturn is a slower-moving planet, people born about two to four years apart have the same Saturn sign.

In the section below, I have provided some ideas for how to tap into the strength of Saturn in your chart based on the zodiac sign. Don’t think of Saturn as pushy but rather an irreplaceable coach in your path of understanding yourself and growing in confidence!

How to Be a Boss, Based on Your Saturn Sign


Aries is already a very fiery sign, but even people with Aries placements can stumble at times, especially since they tend to like to initiate but can fizzle out of excitement once the going gets tough.

One way to tap into a Saturn in Aries is to know your why. Having a purpose behind whatever task you’re engaged in will keep that fiery blaze burning for longer, and it will ultimately help finish the project!


Taurus can be a stubborn sign, but think about how much you can use that stubbornness to your advantage!

Imagine you’re in the middle of a tough workout or about to go into a big presentation at work. Take that headstrong mindset and use it to propel yourself through any obstacle that is in your way.

Coming out on the other end, you will be grateful to that Saturn in Taurus placement for pushing you through till the end.


If your Saturn is in Gemini, you are an advanced thinker. Gemini, you are adept at taking in information, but you are also at sharing that information.

One way to create a boss-like mentality is to teach others. Now, I am not telling you to teach in a know-it-all kind of way, and you don’t want to illicit unwelcome advice. However, with that considered, I know you and the other person will appreciate an outlet for your knowledge.


Displaying your emotions and communicating your feelings, whether in action or emoting, is important.

Tap into this Saturn in Cancer by journaling out your thoughts before divulging into your vices. If you can process a bit through the initial thoughts and feelings, it can help you better understand yourself and help prevent you from giving in to any unhelpful coping mechanisms.

If your Saturn is in the sign of Leo, I can bet you’re extremely self-assured. One way to spread love is to show up for others who may need more reassurance.

It may be bringing awareness to a cause that you feel passionately about, or it also may be as simple as standing up for a friend who is getting treated unfairly. Whatever the case may be, you can be a boss by showing others how to believe in themselves too.


Saturn in the sign of Virgo could be difficult to please. Although your standards may be high, sometimes it’s worth giving yourself some slack.

Maybe you don’t do the laundry this week, or maybe you leave the dishes in the sink overnight. Laugh at yourself a bit and pour yourself a glass of wine (or tea if you’re not a drinker). Find value in who you are, not in what you do.

You’ll be amazed at how much of a boss you feel like after!


Saturn in Libra is about seeking balance, but balance primarily in the area of relationships.

Have you been feeling like you’re putting all the effort into certain friendships but not getting any reciprocal support back? Maybe it’s time, to be honest with yourself and ask what you need in partnerships?

Ensuring that you are energized and not drained from a companionship is a sure way to activate your Saturn.


Scorpio Saturns are passionate and inquisitive. They also are fixed in their ways and often feel they are right about almost all subjects.

In other words, you’re a natural boss, but this can make you a bit intimidating to others. One way to support your Saturn without being overbearing on those around you is to truly consider their thoughts and ideas before making up your mind.

You might be impressed by what you learn.


A Saturn in Sagittarius means you certainly enjoy a good time, but for you, it’s not so much about just having fun as it is about connection and adventure.

Support your Saturn in Sagittarius by trying out new experiences. When you have the opportunity to explore, you will find out things about yourself that you never realized. Then, the more you learn about yourself, the more you grow in fascination with who you are.

Saturn is very comfortable in Capricorn because Capricorn is Saturn’s ruling sign. If your Saturn is in Capricorn, you feel comfortable taking charge and love to work hard. You have to remember that there will always be more work to be done, so before working yourself into the ground, repeat a positive mantra about yourself.

Make sure it’s about who you are and not about whether you get all your to-dos crossed off.


You are a boss that brings people together over a common cause. The thing about those with Saturn in Aquarius is that they are great at networking and building community.

These Aquarius Saturns are also resourceful. For example, Saturn is in Aquarius now. As a collective, even though Covid is still prohibiting some gatherings, we have learned ways to still be in fellowship (safely) despite the restrictions.


Pisces Saturns can tap into their inner boss by remembering and paying attention to their breathing.

It’s easy for Pisces to be distracted or discouraged, but by coming back to breathe and taking a moment to sit with and embody this activity of breathing, you will come back to your center.

It will ground you spiritually in who you are and give you that extra oomph to live into your boss-ness.
