Saturn God of Time

Saturn is the oldest of the Players, the taskmaster. Think of him as the wise old judge, the accountant, the physician, the mortician, the tax collector; the old man who's not only seen it all but remembers the lot...

Saturn causes restrictions and burdens. When Venus wishes for love, he denies her. When Jupiter promises good fortune, he delays it. When Mercury brings news, he degrades it. When Mars is too hard, or too fast, he will crash him.

There is no easy way when it comes to Saturn, and he takes forever to play his hand. Slow and deliberate, everything is hard work for the wise old man and everything is very important. He makes sure that all the rules are followed, keeps the game in check, and a tally of who owes what. When it comes to Saturn, we will surely reap what we have sown.

In Metasymbology, Saturn lords over Capricorn.
Saturn heralds the fifth cycle of seven, representing the 5th Card that follows your Birthday Card.
