The position of Saturn

Saturn in general:

The immense, ringed planet of Saturn is often seen as a somewhat ominous symbol in the astrological chart. Named after the lord of the underworld in ancient mythology, Saturn governs major problems and obstacles in one’s life and also serves as an indicator for one's professional career. The position of Saturn therefore indicates not only how all manner of problems will be dealt with and how an individual responds to opposition, but also illustrates the trajectory of one's career path and personal finances as well.

While many see these two Saturnian roles as unrelated, if one thinks about a career or profession as a series of small problems that need to be solved -- they are easily linked. Where Jupiter represents bounty and excess, Saturn represents restriction and boundaries. Important, and sometimes difficult life lessons are learned through the Saturn influence.
