Jyotish Kovid Ravindra Chunodkar
As you are aware, the Saturn is the slowest planet which takes about 2.5 years to cross one sign. Capricorn and Aquarius are the two signs governed by Saturn; Aquarius being its Mooltrikona sign, also.

As per Systems Approach to Vedic Astrology propounded by Prof V K Choudhry, the functionality of a planet in a horoscope is decided by the rulership of  its mooltrikona sign. Saturn thus will be the owner of that house in a horoscope where Aquarius sign is placed. Based on this, the functionality
[benefic or malefic] of Saturn for various ascendants [lagna] is decided for the purpose of this article.
