Debilitated Saturn in Fourth House
When debilitated Saturn is placed in the fourth house in a horoscope, Capricorn rises in the ascendant. Debilitated Saturn is benefic in the fourth house in many cases though it may turn malefic in some cases. This may happen when Saturn is afflicted by malefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of malefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Saturn may become more malefic.
Since Saturn is weak due to debilitation, it may become easy for malefic planets to add negativity to Saturn. If debilitated Saturn is afflicted by one or more than one malefic planet in the fourth house, it may turn significantly or highly malefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such debilitated Saturn can also turn it malefic in some cases, when such theme is malefic. The concept of benefic planets turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets has been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.

Saturn represents the first house, and it is weak due to debilitation. Hence the native may witness health problems and reduction in lifespan. These problems may aggravate if such debilitated Saturn is influenced by malefic planets and/or an overall malefic horoscope. Taking an example, suppose debilitated Saturn is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in Aries with malefic exalted Sun. Neechbhang Rajyoga may not be formed in this case, since Sun is malefic. On the contrary, Sun may transfer a lot of negative energy to Saturn, and the latter may turn significantly/highly malefic, depending on the finer factors and overall horoscope. The term ‘finer factors’ here means the placements of Saturn and Sun in various nakshatras and navamshas, within the sign of Aries.
Suppose debilitated Mercury is placed in the third house in Pisces, benefic Venus is placed in the second house in Aquarius, malefic Rahu is placed in the twelfth house in Sagittarius, malefic Ketu is placed in the sixth house in Gemini and debilitated Moon is placed in the eleventh house in Scorpio. In this case, the native may suffer from various types of health problems and/or drug addictions. He may suffer due to them and he may witness reduction in lifespan. The native may die before the age of 55 or 50, depending on his overall horoscope and running times. If malefic Jupiter is placed in the sixth house in Gemini with Ketu, and Mars is placed in the twelfth house with Rahu, the equation may become worse. Guru Chandal Yoga is formed in the sixth house whereas Angarak Yoga is formed in the twelfth house. In this case, the native may die before the age of 40 or even that of 30, depending on the finer factors and running times. The native may die because of drug overdose or due to a fatal health problem.
Apart from these, malefic debilitated Saturn in the fourth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
