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..."
Firenze: "That is human nonsense."
— Firenze's first class teaching Divination[src]

Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun in the solar system, known for its distinctive, broad ring system.[1]

According to one wizarding author, Wizards Are from Neptune, Witches are from Saturn.

Significance in divination


A miniature Saturn, part of a solar system model in the Astronomy Room.

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.[2]

Parvati Patil claimed that people needed to be extra cautious when handling hot things whenever Mars and Saturn made a right-angle.[3]
