Positive Impacts

The twelfth house, the last one, is a symbol of closure. It associates with the closing or ending of things eventually. When Saturn is in the 12th house, this placement strengthens Saturn’s reactions to all your deeds in life. So if Saturn holds up the 12th house firmly, it won’t necessarily mean it would be all bad.


1. Calm and Confident Personality

Natives having Saturn’s placement in their 12th house are often very polite, calm, and assertive about their beliefs. This trait gives them a confident aura. They always prefer being alone and not surrounded by a lot of people. They could be found in a library or watching their favourite movie alone rather than partying on the weekend. This trait goes true for Taurus and Pisces ascendant in 12 th house Saturn.

2. Spiritual souls

If the 12th house has a vital placement of Saturn or Shani, this placement could lead your life towards spirituality. Starting this celestial position makes the natives indulge in regular spiritual activities. Also, they always believe in working for a good cause or charity. These natives might also be influenced by the ayurvedic lifestyle and bring their needs to the simplest in their early life stages only.

3. Go to Foreign land

The placement is one of the appealing aspects of having Saturn in our 12th house, going to a foreign nation. Then, of course, the natives could make connections to someone living abroad and eventually land there too. But sooner or later, they intend to work as a public servant in a jail, asylum or hospital, where they could see the changes they make.

. This celestial placement allows the natives to eliminate all the negativity from their life. As discussed earlier, they believe in being alone and having a spiritual nature, so it just moulds their way to the ultimate soulful journey.

Negative Impacts

A strong Saturn might sound better than our lousy perception of Shani. But, if Saturn is even a little bit debilitated, this could be worse than you could dream. The natives have to face a lot of atrocities in their personal and professional life. Moreover, this could affect their mental state or lead to depression.

Nagatve Person

1. Marriage might fail

The placement of Saturn in the twelfth house creates a lot of tension in the native’s married life because the position often leads to the native choosing solidarity rather than being a people person. Here, the partner might not react positively in such a situation, so a lot of arguments, fights, and drama will be along the way.

Marriage might fail

2. Loss of wealth

Loss is part of destiny for the natives of 12th house, Saturn. When the placement weakens, this leads to no wealth accumulation and continuous loss in business. The natives might go into a lot of debt or use malpractices to make money and eventually land up in jail. In other cases, they might face bankruptcy or theft.


3. Deteriorating health

Health is a significant issue if the celestial placement of Saturn isn’t vital in the 12th house, as the natives might have to go under depression. They could bottle up their feelings which could gradually lower their confidence and mental health. In severe cases, they might attempt suicide when unable to serve their means.

4. Lack of life goals

The natives of this celestial configuration are often very dedicated to their work. But if Saturn is weak in its placement in the last house, the natives might be too lazy to do anything. They might end up having no goals in their life and career. They might often feel like losing up on everything and could harm themselves and feel jealous of others’ achievements.
