Saturn represents duty, commitment and sacrifice, discipline, structure. So naturally these things are going to be given in the sign of Capricorn.
Saturn of course feels comfortable in Capricorn. It’s able to perform karma. Sagittarius is about learning. After this 2.5 years of learning, now Saturn needs to perform Karma’s. Now Saturn needs to perform actions. You would notice, Saturn in Sagittarius naturally makes an individual a bit lethargic because it’s a fiery sign and it’s a satvik sign. At the same time it’s a dual sign and Saturn’s nature in this particular sign becomes a bit chaotic. It’s indecisive. Now in Capricorn, it has to focus on his higher karma. It means standing up and performing the Karma’s. Saturn does well in Capricorn.
