Saturn is not all about evil pain and suffering.
It only seems that way until one realizes that the problems are in fact opportunities for new solutions. Of course this doesn't help when someone is
presently going through a painful time. Once they get over it, they then have the chance to learn something. If one doesn't learn anything, the
same issues will eventually return, and it will seem like one is doomed to a life of suffering.
When one learns from his mistakes and past experiences, then the 'good' side of Saturn makes its appearance, showing it was necessary to travel the
path of pain before perceiving the path of happiness.
Saturn is in EVERYONE'S birth chart. No matter what day/month you're born in, Saturn will be part of your chart, and will surely affect you.
Whether you perceive this is dependant on you looking back at your life experiences and seeing if you're going through the same pattern.
Color associated with Saturn is black. Look at the Abrahamic religions (Judasim, Christianity, and Islam) all have black clothes for religious
Shape associated with Saturn is square, as it represents boundaries, law, order, as well as duality (bringer of pain and happiness).
There is also a brotherhood of Saturn.
When reading about Kabbalah, some of the things they mention is how problems that affect us and seem to repeat with no end are actually opportunities
to see why these problems appear in our lives. If you compare it to the idea behind Saturn and its duality, it's very similar, if not the same.
I can't prove any of this, but I did find all this info researching seemingly random unrelated topics, and listening to a variety of speakers.
I also recommend the book by Liz Greene - Saturn, an new look at an old devil.
This book essentially described the first 27 years of my life, the way I lived, and how I saw everything. It just summarized how Saturn affects signs
such as Cancer, both from a male and a female view.
It's funny how this book came out 2 years BEFORE I was even born.
