- Parvati Patil: "Professor Trelawney did astrology with us! Mars causes accidents and burns and things like that, and when it makes an angle to Saturn, like now - that means people need to be extra careful when handling hot things..."

Significance in divination
According to Sybill Trelawney, Saturn has a "baleful influence" when it is in a prominent position at the time of a person's birth, causing dark hair, short height, and tragic losses early in life.
Behind the Scenes
- Saturn is named after the Roman god of time and the immortal king of the Titan gods, who was overthrown by his son Jupiter. In Greek times, Saturn was known as Kronos. Saturn and Uranus are the only planets not named after an Olympian god.
