Without a doubt, Saturn is “weighty” by nature. What Saturn has to offer you in this lifetime (from personal experience) really depends on your souls past Karma (since it is considered the Lord of this area).
I’ve heard of Saturn bestowing great power to those who simply work with its energies, regardless of intent. Others are at the mercy of its restriction and lessons, which has been my own personal experience due to my soul coming into this lifetime with a lot of harsh karmic baggage, having used the occult to manipulate and control others in past lives for its own gain, and making deals coming into this life to bring some balance to its unrestraint and extremes.
In its raw form however, it is a neutral energy. Good or bad, it doesn’t matter, because that’s not what Karma is about. It is simply “action”, and Saturn applies it justly. Powerful souls with malicious intent in these lifetimes making use of Saturns energies can easily find themselves not getting “comeuppance”, simply because they are doing exactly what was intended of them here and now, learning the lessons and acquiring the experiences they sought out to learn, while providing harsh lessons to those whose Karma it is to be on the receiving end.
Saturn can give you everything, and it can take everything, and each persons experience with it is unique. I certainly wouldn’t want to work with anything else. In its own influence on my life, it’s brought a deep humbling onto me, patience, acceptance of “what is” and very painful lessons. But after the trials, suffering and application of what it’s taught, you’ve prepared for anything. Exposure therapy amped up to 11. YMMV.
I’ve been enjoying J T Kirkbrides books on the subject a lot. Might pick up a copy of The Cult of the Black Cube as well now that it’s back in stock.
