Saturn relates to time, mortality, structure, and making sure everything is in place, to get where you want to go. Saturn fares well in earnest, productivity-minded Virgo.
This bestows a methodical nature, someone not afraid of working hard. It lends extraordinary patience, with the ability to keep a schedule others find tedious. A challenge with Saturn in Virgo is making work meaningful, linking all this effort to a higher sense of purpose.
If there’s a crisis during Saturn turning points, it could be related to this – aligning the higher calling with the day-to-day.
An event or illness may make the body a central focus for those with this Saturn. There may be a physical limitation that tests their endurance. And because Saturn means lack or delay, in Virgo there might have been little physical autonomy when young. A parent might have been overly involved in bodily functions, for example. The body system may have seemed out of whack, and often was mirroring the chaos of the home.
Saturn in Virgo may have experienced a general lack of boundaries while growing up.
The challenge, then, is to work back to a state of purified, whole-unto-oneself state. This may lead them on an odyssey to wholeness, to become healers or health professionals.
In an effort to create structure, Saturn in Virgos may go overboard with compulsive habits that look neurotic to the outsider. There’s a craving for inner purpose, but often that seems elusive. The key to finding an anchor of the self lies with the body, and its particular intelligence.
This can make Saturn in Virgos devoted to constantly refining their health regimen.
Saturn in Virgo brings a focus on the intricate workings, and how details add up to the big picture. It draws them into their own physical system, but also to the Earth body, as well. Some are inspired to serve the environment. Through hard work, they can use their instinctual knowledge of how systems are linked, and be of service that way.
The dreadful word slave comes up with Virgo, and with Saturn here, there’s often a rising up out of shackles of some kind. The full expression of Virgo is someone whose service comes like a gift from within their wholeness of self.
Saturn’s lessons are about finding your own authority.
Having Saturn in Virgo may mean feeling used and abused, or always under someone’s thumb. The victory comes when Saturn in Virgo finds personal power through self-healing.

Crowley: Gain. The number Nine, Yesod, inevitably brings back the balance of Force in fulfillment. The card is ruled by Venus in Virgo. It shows good luck attending material affairs, favour and popularity. The disks are arranged as an equilateral triangle of three, apex upwards, close together; and, surrounded at some distance by a ring, six larger disks in the form of a hexagon. This signifies the multiplication of the original established Word-by the mingling of “good luck and good management”. The three central disks are of the magical pattern as in earlier cards; but the others, since the descent into matter implies the gradual exhaustion of the original whirling energy, now take on the form of coins. These may be marked with the magical images of the appropriate planets.
As a general remark, one may say that the multiplication of a symbol of Energy always tends to degrade its essential meaning, as well as to complicate it.

Prudence, safety, success, accomplishment, certitude, discernment.
Reversed: Roguery, deception, voided project, bad faith.
