One of the sensitive points in the natal chart and one of the Arabian parts. In the case of daytime births, it is calculated by adding the degree positions of the ascendant to Saturn and subtracting the degree position of the sun.

In the case of nighttime births, it is calculated by adding the position of the sun to the ascendant and subtracting the position of Saturn.

In traditional astrology this part indicates the actual father of the native. In modern astrology it shows that point in the horoscope which is particularly sensitive to roles traditionally associated with fatherhood, such as taking on responsibility, giving support and self-confidence. Aspects to this point indicate how these energies will be expressed.
