Debilitated Saturn in Twelfth House
When debilitated Saturn is placed in the twelfth house in a horoscope, Taurus rises in the ascendant. Debilitated Saturn is benefic in the twelfth 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 twelfth 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)’.
