Retrograde Saturn in 6th House in Scorpio
When retrograde Saturn is placed in the sixth house of a horoscope in Scorpio, Gemini rises in the ascendant. Saturn rules the eighth and ninth house. In general, it is partly benefic and partly malefic here, though the benefic part is higher, in most cases. The concept of various planets exhibiting tendencies to be benefic or malefic on the basis of the houses they rule in a horoscope has been explained in the book ‘Gemstones: Magic or Science?’.
Retrograde Saturn in the sixth house of horoscope in Scorpio is benefic in many cases, though it may turn malefic in some cases. It may happen when such Saturn is influenced by one or more malefic planets, and/or an overall malefic horoscope. The concept of a benefic planet turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets has been explained in the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh’.
When benefic in nature, retrograde Saturn in the sixth house of a horoscope in Scorpio can bless the native with good results related to father, creativity, spiritual growth, profession, finances, reputation, authority, recognition, fame and several other good results, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Such retrograde Saturn can render creativity and/or spiritual growth to the native. He may also witness various types of benefits related to or through his father.

Saturn rules the eighth and ninth house, and it is placed in the sixth house.

The native may witness various types of health problems which may trouble him, and they may reduce his lifespan. He may also witness reduction in lifespan due to several other reasons. For example, he may die in an accident, through a natural disaster, due to a fatal viral infection like COVID, and/or due to drug addiction. Taking an example, suppose retrograde Saturn is placed in the sixth house of a horoscope in Scorpio with malefic Mars. Malefic Ketu is placed in the first house in Gemini, malefic Rahu is placed in the seventh house in Sagittarius with Mercury, Venus is placed in the eighth house in Capricorn, and retrograde Jupiter is placed in the third house in Leo. In this case, native’s parents may get divorced and the native may live with his mother. The native may not live long, and he may die before his age of 45 or 40.
If benefic Moon is placed in the fourth house in Virgo, and Sun is placed in the seventh house in Sagittarius with Mercury and Rahu, the equation may become more troublesome. Grahan Yoga is formed in the seventh house. In this case, native’s father may be criminal minded as well as abusive, and he may use physical violence against native and his mother. If the finer factors and running times are very bad, native’s father may hit him hard with something, or he may bang his head against something, between native’s age of 5 and 15. The native may not survive the blow, and he may die.
