There is a Qabbalistic interpretation of Saturn that expressly links it to intuition (as the higher of two expressions of Saturn on the Tree of Life) Qabbalah, of course, isn't astrology - it's a separate system that employs astrological labels for its own purposes, so any such input has to be judged independently, on its own merits.
It seems to me (from watching people navigate Qabbalistic spiritual evolution system), that those who have progressed to very deep spiritual levels of awareness undergo a flip in how Saturn operates. The first characteristic is that their relationship to physical, biological survival collapses (for lack of a better word; it's not that they no longer have a survival instinct but, rather, that their bodies go along benefiting from a survival instinct while the individual has learned that he or she is not at all the body). The psychological energies previously committed of survival, or to experiencing themselves as primarily biological beings, collapses and re-expreseses as a function commonly called intuition. "Intuition" in this sense means direct acquisition of knowing through means that are neither physical-sensory, intellectual, or emotional.
This also shifts the relationship of time. Saturn is intimately connected to time. Generally it expresses as the limitations of time, insufficiency of time, etc. After the above shift, the more natural perception is nested in the recognition of time as infinite and as inseparable from substance.
This shift is also the threshold of the laughing Buddha. The "everything is sorrow" observation (to use the grossly-simplified popular rendering of dukkha) is understood in a way that is inseparable from "everything is joy" and an incessant, joyous joke. (No need to explain the joke: It would take too long anyway.)
Saturn also is reality. It never ceases to be that; but as one's perception and understanding of the nature of reality changes, so does Saturn's performance within it.
So, having regrettably been more confusing than clarifying, I would respond to your inquiry by saying, yes, there is an atypical situation where Saturn is an expression of the deeper, gnostic sense of intuition.
