With Saturn in the 6th house, relations with coworkers and employees can be strained by irritability and demandingness. Lateness, negligence, lack of self discipline are some of the things and ways in which such individuals may sabotage themselves. The good news is that through applied effort and determination, these weaknesses can become strengths and areas of expertise and proficiency learned through life experience.
In house 6, Saturn can teach us through karma and consequences, why we should take our responsibilities seriously and why we shouldn’t rely on others to help us all the time. This placement urges us to develop our competence and ability to perform well in our own capacity. Through self determination, discipline and practice, we can develop great work ethic and workmanship that can earn us respect in both the eyes of others and ourselves.

It represents our methodology and craftsmanship and the way in which we handle our responsibilities and obligations.

It can manifest an overly serious demeanor and a tendency to miss out on some of the joy and pleasure of living life. Saturn is also connected with karma, especially negative karma that comes back to bite us when we’ve made stupid or foolish decisions.

Additionally, Saturn is associated with isolation and self reliance.
Saturn in the 6th House Natal:
With Saturn in the 6th house of the birth chart, it is suggested that there is negative karma carried over from the prior life where the individual may have suffered a lack of steady employment or suffered health problems that limited their ability to work. In this life, the individual has an opportunity to transcend this if they are willing to learn from and embrace the hard lessons that Saturn brings in the realm of work, errands and health. People with this placement in their birth charts may face challenges created by either not working hard enough or working too hard. Such persons may display a willingness to take on tasks that others would find too arduous and unappealing. Employers may often give them more work than they ought to bear because they know the Saturn in the 6th house person will do whatever it takes to get things done.
They themselves can be harsh and hypercritical of other people they perceive as lazy and time-wasting. They can be resentful of others who sit on their laurels while they are busy with their nose to the grindstone. With Saturn in house 6, there may be a need to learn to take it easy and not push yourself to the brink of exhaustion and to not be so judgemental of what others are or aren’t doing especially in comparison to yourself. Furthermore, Saturn in the 6th house can potentially bring about health problems that are directly or indirectly caused by work stress. Indirect problems may include the development of unhealthy habits like smoking or drinking that help take the edge off after a stressful day at work. Such coping mechanisms can become a crutch and create a vicious cycle that eventually can undermine the ability to perform well in your job and also handle personal responsibilities.
Saturn in the 6th House Transit:
Saturn transits last for about 2.5 years in each sign and house and so they can constitute a significant period in our lives. In each house and each sign it passes through, Saturn will serve to repress us psychologically and existentially. In the 6th house, Saturn urges us to be a better or more reliable worker and to take on the yoke of our responsibilities and bear our burdens noblely. It is a time to grow in our craft and performance but it can also bring about a time of increased tension and conflict within the workplace. We may also experience a string of negative and unfortunate circumstances surrounding our work. Such events may also precipitate a need to shift into survival mode and tighten up our skills and abilities, perhaps for the purpose of finding a new job or staying a float during hard economic times.
Our health may become a focus and we may be motivated to take better control over what we eat and the general quality of our lifestyle. At this time, fear and anxiety related to our mortality and longevity can drive us to form healthier habits and routines that promote better wellbeing. Work stress and problems in and around our professions can become an ever present problem. It can seem that there are a number of obstacles and hurdles standing in your way. We may find that our personal resolve and determination may be tested when it comes to work ethic and skill development. Saturn will urge you to develop greater self reliance and capacity to get things done to a higher standard. Hopefully with the expectation that it will earn you greater recognition and credit you deserve, but it possibly may not.
