Saturn in Virgo

If you have Saturn in Virgo, you tend to be industrious, efficient, practical, exacting, scientific, organized, shy, thrifty, studious, economical, and punctual. You have common sense and the ability to manage others, but may be a bit of a perfectionist. Detailed work does not bother you and you are able to focus and concentrate on the various minutia of any project. Your mind is deep and analytical and you probably have a good head for numbers. You may be prone to periods of depression or be prone to hypochondriac tendencies. Your work is usually neat and orderly and you dislike messes and dirt. There may be a desire for solitude. You need to stay busy because boredom brings unnecessary worry. Do not allow yourself to be critical of others.

With Saturn in Virgo your test is the lesson of discrimination: what’s important, and what’s not. Don’t obsess or worry over details and inconsequentials, be aware of nagging, and watch your criticism, especially of co-workers. If Saturn is afflicted, you may have to guard against a generally irritable disposition. Your mind is very orderly and analytical, but it would help to develop your sense of humor and to not take life so seriously. Difficulties in assimilating life’s experiences can lead to nerve problems. This sign placement denotes good researchers, scientists, accountants, bookkeepers, or any profession with a great deal of detail. Saturn returns to each sign once every 29 or 30 years for about a three-year stay. Saturn was in Virgo from August 1919 to October 1921, from September 1948 to August 1951, from July 1978 to September 1980 and from August 2007 to October 2009.
