The first house of horoscope is also known as the ascendant. The position of Saturn in first house of horoscope is not considered good unless it is located in favorable signs such as Libra, Aquarius and Capricorn and having some benefic aspect. Also, I have seen Saturn producing good results for natives with Saturn in Sagittarius and Pisces in the first house of horoscope.
A powerful Saturn in first house of horoscope indicates success in politics but a weak or badly afflicted Saturn in ascendant is likely to cause struggle in childhood, struggle with career, relationships, financial problems, issues with character etc.
Saturn in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Aries is full of energy; it wants to finish the job as soon as possible. It likes to stay busy and as a result of this it sometimes jumps into another assignment before finishing the previous one. Saturn, on the other hand, is patient. It takes time. People with Aries ascendant are not afraid of hard work but since Saturn is considered debilitated in Aries, on most occasions the person does not get the desired results for the hard work done. Such person may fall victim to jealousy.
Although Saturn is considered debilitated in Aries, yet I have seen Saturn producing worse results in Leo (than Aries). A person with Saturn in Leo in the ascendant tends to become his own enemy. If Saturn is with Rahu here expect even worse results. If Venus is also under malefic influence, the person struggles in whatever he does. People try to get away from him. The native faces problems with marriage (either delayed marriage or issues in married life) or does not get married. The results may change however; if Saturn is in the aspect of benefic planets.
Saturn in Sagittarius in ascendant is a good combination in my opinion particularly if ascendant is under the aspect of Jupiter. The person will earn good money and will be successful enough to earn respect in the society. He will be a man of value. Chances of success in politics are higher if Saturn is powerful. Saturn under malefic influence would however cause issues with relationship, arguments with brothers, financial ups and down etc.
Saturn in Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Saturn in Taurus is interesting as Saturn is the one who would instigate the person to renounce the material pleasures however; Taurus being the sign of Venus the person would be more indulged in relationships. Nevertheless, Saturn in Taurus in ascendant is a relatively good placement. The person is patient, hard working and successful in whatever he (or she) does given that there is no malefic aspect on Saturn and Venus.
Saturn likes to be in Virgo. It makes a person intelligent and hard working but lacks stability. The chances of being introvert increase when Saturn is placed in Virgo in ascendant. Native with Saturn in Virgo in ascendant is seen to take decision for marriage at a very late stage. Sometimes it happens to be so late that he (or she) has to struggle hard to find a life partner.
Saturn in Capricorn in ascendant becomes a benefic placement as Saturn is the ascendant lord as well as the lord of the second house. Due to the abilities such as good decision making, hard work, fearlessness, patience such person is expected to maintain good social contacts and is able to hold good financial status. Such people are found getting successful as businessmen. They are good leaders.
Saturn in Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Saturn likes to be in all these three signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) as he is exalted in one of these signs (i.e. Libra), owns one of these signs (i.e. Aquarius) and one of the signs (i.e. Gemini) is of his friend. These are the signs of intellect and Saturn well placed in these signs makes a person intellectual.
Saturn is ascendant in Gemini is good from intellect perspective. Gemini is a dual sign. Such people are very intelligent but they go into so many things that they end up having only superficial knowledge of everything. A strong Saturn has the potential to control such tendencies. Problems and issues keep coming to their lives however. Issues with siblings are often reported for such natives.
Saturn in Libra in ascendant is one of the most favorable combinations in my opinion. Such person makes a greater name than his father. Such person is well balanced in his approach and people respect him for his decision making abilities. Unless other combinations support marriage such people are not expected to get married.
If with benefic aspect Saturn in Aquarius in ascendant produces very good results. Such person is somewhat serious however; very intelligent and possessing thorough knowledge. He might speak less but sensible. Such person can become a very good businessman. If under malefic aspect the person would tend to waste his energy in useless works and spend money for unwanted reasons.
Saturn in Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Saturn in Cancer in ascendant is not considered good from health perspective however; might be enjoying material pleasures. His wife would be stronger compared to him and this might cause stress in relationship. If under benefic aspect such person would also be lucky in getting gifts or some sort of unearned money.
Saturn in Scorpio in ascendant is one of the most interesting combinations for me. I think this is a very good combination for success in politics or business. People with Saturn in Scorpion in ascendant know how to deal with tough times and different people. If Mars is also sitting strong in the horoscope, such person is expected to make big name in the society.
Jupiter and Saturn are not friends, yet in my limited experience I have seen Saturn producing relatively good results in signs of Jupiter and I think the reason for that is – Saturn respects those who are involved in good Karma. A person with Saturn in Pisces in ascendant is supposed to be polite, well mannered, of a helping nature and of good financial status. All this is when Saturn is not under the aspect of malefic planets.

ज्योतिष सदा से ही मेरा प्रिय विषय रहा है. अपने अभी तक के जीवन में मुझे इस क्षेत्र से जुड़े बहुत से लोगों के विचार जानने का अवसर मिला. सौभाग्यवश ऐसे भी कई लोगों से मिला जिन्हें इस क्षेत्र में विश्वास ही नहीं था. फ्यूचरपॉइंट संस्था (दिल्ली) से भी बहुत कुछ सीखा और अपने पिताजी से तो अभी भी यदा कदा सीखते ही रहता हूँ. ज्योतिष अच्छा तो बहुत है परंतु इसमें भ्रांतियां भी उतनी ही फैली हुई हैं जिस कारण कभी कभी बड़ा दुःख होता है. नौकरी के चलते ज्योतिष में समय देना थोड़ा कठिन हो जाता है अतः ईश्वर की प्रेरणा से अपने विचारों को प्रकट करने के लिए और इनसे किसी का कुछ भी भला हो सके इसी हेतु लेख लिखा करता हूँ.
