Saturn in the 1st House is a survivalist. They effectively take care of themselves and other people as a basic instinct. Fear of losing is due to a self-fulfilling prophecy; they will eventually lose and have to deal with the consequences. 1st House instinct makes them avoid loss at all costs; although, Saturn restricts the native so much that they are unable to take extra precautions. To avoid this, they may not put themselves in these situations. As a result, Saturn in the 1st may be conservative, unmoving in their opinions.
In the eyes of others, Saturn in the 1st is a dominant figure. As a parent, they punish easily, giving lessons to their children for fear that they'll never learn. Following the rules is a must; Saturn sees unconventional habits as unacceptable. These Saturn qualities create strong loyalty and commitment. Commitment to their look, identity, and how others see them has extreme importance due to the 1st House. As they grow older, many anti-aging techniques will fill their schedule.
Impulse and movement do not rule Saturn. Instead, controlled movement of the instinctual personality is apparent. Through the 1st House, others may see this native as uptight; in their eyes, the Saturn native is constantly on the defense.
