Here, Ganesha wants to describe basic features of Saturn and Ketu.
Significations of Saturn

Tatwa : Air
Caste : Sudra
Nature : Tamasik
Dhatu : Muscles
Strong Direction : West
Season : Sishira
Externally, Saturn signifies people who maintain low level and basic facilities: service people, working class, people doing manual job, people dedicated to their jobs for a long time, very responsible and committed people. Also those who are very introvert or hidden from the public eye, researchers, reclusive, monks.
Physically, Saturn signifies the joints, tenants and muscles that keep the skeleton within a range of motions. It also signifies the physical aspect of the nervous system.
Spiritually, Saturn rules over Crown / Sahastraar Chakara whose colour is Bluish or Violet and situated on the top of the head. Crown Chakara controls the entire body to work. Its main function is an association between Body and Mind. Its purposes are intuitive knowing, connection to one’s spirituality, integration of the whole. It has “Thousand-petalled Lotus”. Crown Chakara is considered as energy entrance. All kinds of positive energy which we need come into our body through Crown Chakara.
Saturn is probably best known for its system of planetary rings, which make it the most visually remarkable object in the solar system.
Significations of Ketu
Caste : Mixed caste

Externally, Ketu signifies people who are mysterious, who hold abstract or Incomprehensible views, who do not show their true identity, spies, mathematicians, people who have flashes of insights, inventors.
Physically, Ketu would co-signify the same parts as Mars.
Spiritually, Rahu and Ketu are different bodies. Rahu has Crown Chakara while Ketu has Muladhar Chakara. Hence, Ketu rules over Muladhar / Root Chakara whose colour is Reddish and situated at the point between the anus and the sex organs. If there is truthful harmonization of positive energy between the Crown Chakara and Muladhar Chakara, one will have supreme Intelligence and absolute Spiritual Energy in physical body.
As stated above, Saturn and Ketu both are spiritual planets. However, in Vedic Astrology, the conjunction of Saturn-Ketu or Saturn-Rahu is not considered good specifically in some houses. Whoever has weak position of Saturn and Ketu in their horoscope, they have good time to enhance positive energy from transiting Saturn with Ketu. They should perform lot of Puja and increase religious rituals. One should worship Lord Shivjee, or Lord Hanumanjee to enhance energy from transiting Saturn. On the other hand, on should do Sarpasukta Path or worship Lord Ganesha to gain energy from transiting Ketu.
Ganesha explains another way to enhance energy of Crown Chakara is Bija Mantra. OM is Bija Mantra for Crown Chakara. Pronounce it by inhaling audibly through your nostrils, and direct the stream of air to the point between your eyebrows. Pronounce the sound along with your exhalation as a subtly audible whisper, allowing the sound and breathe to resonate in the cranial area.
LAM is Bija mantra of Muladhara Chakara. Curve the tip of your tongue up and back, and place it on the rear section of the upper palate to pronounce a sound like the word alum without the initial. Bija Mantra have their root in the Hindu monist tradition, they are learned better with the help of a guru for initiation.
Ganesha advises that you should not afraid of Saturn and Ketu, keep doing good deeds / karma and have faith in God. This will protect you against the malefic effects of Saturn and Ketu.
