Saturn is the god of triumph, harvest and plant growth, the Roman equivalent to the Greek god Chronos (from who’s symbol this one derives). Because for many years Saturn was the farthest known planet with the longest orbit (about 29 years), human lifespan would be measured there in 2-3 rotations. As a result, the symbol is also associated with death and the Reaper. Saturn is lunar nature and dominated by the elements. This symbol is also used to represent lead.
