Saturn is called Shani or Shanischara in Hindu mythology. It is a planet who delivers justice. It takes account of all your good and bad deeds and responds accordingly. This planet rotates slowly. Surrounded by three concentric rings, Saturn is the outermost planet which seems like a blue ball with 3 yellow rings.
This cold and icy planet is considered as Yama in the Hindu mythology who is the deity of death.
Saturn is also known as Lame as his legs were chopped off by Ravana. The story goes like this. Ravana was about to be a father of a son. He wanted to make sure that all the planets lie in the eleventh house due to the belief that planets in the eleventh house are good for the concerned person. Knowing this, Saturn urged all the other gods that he can easily sanction whatever they desire. Hence, he stretched himself from eleventh to twelfth house. It is also believed that Saturn is quite beneficial in the 11th house, but it is awful in the 12th.
This act of Saturn was noticed by Ravana hence the latter cut off Saturn’s leg which is also a reason that Saturn moves slowly.
Saturn is the son of Sun in Hindu mythology and the son Uranus in Western one. Rhea was his wife. When he realised that his children would rule the world, he destroyed them. However, Jupiter is associated with survival. When Jupiter was born, his mother provided him with some protection so that Saturn could not reach him.
