Saturn's astrological symbol is combined with that of Jupiter's to create the Symbol of Jusa, an icon created by Anna Varney Cantodea (the image and the voice of the Sopor Aeternus and the Ensemble der Schatten) that reflects her spirituality and has become an insignia for herself and her music. The blend of JUpiter and SAturn kinda means Order out of Chaos. Jupiter is the most positive planet and Saturn is the most negative. Its a symbol of Annas self healing process.

Saturn is associated with the principles of limitation, restrictions, boundaries, practicality and reality, crystallizing, and structures. Saturn governs ambition, career, authority and hierarchy, and conforming social structures. It concerns a person's sense of duty, discipline and responsibility, and their physical and emotional endurance during hardships.

Jupiter is the Roman king of the gods and the god of sky and thunder, the only survived son of Saturnus, the previous king of the gods, who swallowed his children as he was warned that one of them would overthrow him. Saturn swallowed the children Neptune, Pluto, Ceres, Juno and Vesta. When Ops, his wife, realised that she was pregnant again, she had the baby secretly moved to Crete,giving a stone wrapped in swaddling-clothes to Saturn for him to eat. Saturn believed he had eaten Jupiter therefore Jupiter was saved. His identifying implement is the thunderbolt, and his primary sacred animal is the eagle. Jupiter is associated with the principles of sacrifice, growth, expansion, prosperity, and good fortune. Jupiter governs long distance and foreign travel, higher education, religion, and the law. It is also associated with the urge for freedom and exploration, humanitarian and protecting roles, and with gambling and merrymaking.
