This is my personal understanding regarding Lord Shani Dev, who sits exalted in D1 but Debilitated in D9. So what my observation is
” Saturn Exalted in D1 means, people will think you are doing a great job, at least your outward exposure of job may be good, but in your soul level ( D9 ) you may feel pressure and exhausted in the Job “
Though the main fact of Jyotish is why we get certain planet in certain house, and that needs lots of studies and understanding and the blessings from Guru.
I am a lover and learner of Vedic Jyotish and feel free to do comments about your thoughts which is highly appreciable.
