Translation: If Saturn is in the first house (Ascendant), the native will suffer from rheumatic and bilious diseases. If Saturn is in his sign of exaltation (Libra) the native will have lordship over a village or town and will have financial and agricultural prosperity.

If Saturn is in own sign (Capricorn or Aquarius), father of the native will be wealthy.

If Saturn is in the ascendant placed in the sign of the 4th or the 10th house the native will be very fortunate and will enjoy the effects of Maharaja yoga.

If Saturn in the ascendant is aspected by the Moon, the native will earn his livelihood by begging. This will not happen if Saturn is aspected by a benefic also.
