Exalted Saturn in First House
When exalted Saturn is placed in the first house in a horoscope, Libra rises in the ascendant. Exalted Saturn is benefic in the first house in most 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.
If exalted Saturn is afflicted by two or more than two malefic planets in the first house, it may turn significantly or highly malefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such exalted Saturn can also turn it malefic in some cases, when such theme is highly 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)’.
Let’s look at some results which may be given by exalted Saturn in the first house when it is benefic. Such benefic exalted Saturn can bless the native with good results related to overall health, lifespan, personality, mother, education, properties, vehicles, profession, authority, recognition, fame, finances and several other benefic results, depending on his overall horoscope.

Taking an example, suppose benefic exalted Saturn is placed in the first house of a horoscope in Libra. Venus is placed in the fourth house in Capricorn, benefic Sun is placed in the fifth house in Aquarius, benefic Moon is placed in the eleventh house in Leo and exalted Jupiter is placed in the tenth house in Cancer. In this case, the native may engage in the field of politics and he may witness good results. The native may win more than one public election after the age of 35 and he may become a member of legislative assembly of a state or a member of parliament of his country.
If benefic Mars is placed in the eleventh house in Leo with Moon, Mercury is placed in the fourth house in Capricorn with Venus, exalted Rahu is placed in the eighth house in Taurus and exalted Ketu is placed in the second house in Scorpio, the equation may become better. The native may win public elections more the once in his life and he may become a minister in state or national government, more than once in his life. The native may witness grand success after the age of 50. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, the native may even become the chief minister of a state.
Apart from these, benefic exalted Saturn in the first house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.
On the other hand, malefic exalted Saturn in the first house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to health, mother, education, marriage, profession, reputation, credibility and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
Looking at the sphere of marriage, such malefic exalted Saturn can delay or disturb the marriage of the native, depending on his overall horoscope. Taking an example, suppose exalted Saturn is placed in the first house of a horoscope in Libra with malefic Ketu and malefic Jupiter whereas malefic Rahu is placed in the seventh house in Aries. In this case, the native may witness delay and/or disturbances in marriage, depending on his overall horoscope. Such native may get married late and/or he may witness serious problems in marriage leading to the failure of his first or even second marriage.
Suppose Mercury is placed in the first house in Libra with Saturn, Jupiter and Ketu; debilitated Venus is placed in the twelfth house in Virgo, benefic Sun is placed in the second house in Scorpio, Moon is placed in the sixth house in Pisces and Mars is placed in the eighth house in Taurus. In this case, the native may get married after the age of 40 or he may not get married throughout his life, depending on the finer factors and running times.
Looking at another variation, suppose the recent placements of Mercury, Venus, Sun, Moon and Mars are annulled. Suppose Venus is placed in the eleventh house in Leo along with Sun, exalted Mercury is placed in the twelfth house in Virgo, Mars is placed in the seventh house in Aries with Rahu, and benefic Moon is placed in the third house in Sagittarius. In this case, the native may get married at proper age but he may face serious problems in his marriage. His first marriage may break due to such problems and he may get married again, soon after the first marriage fails. However, he may face problems in second marriage also and this marriage may also fail. Depending on the finer factors and running times, the native may witness two or three broken marriages before he may finally settle in his third or fourth marriage, likely after the age of 40. The native may also lose one of his wives especially the first wife to death, if the finer factors and running times are supportive for this result.
Apart from these, malefic exalted Saturn in the first house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
