Astrological Impact of Saturn’s Transit over Sagittarius

Saturn’s Transit over Sagittarius – Astrological Analysis

Destiny could be said to be the most capricious thing in the world; it is whimsical to say the least and no planet symbolizes it so much as Saturn. Saturn’s transit is something which either someone looks forward to or despises the most. In this write-up, I will discuss the movements of Saturn, its impact on mundane affairs, influence on the twelve zodiacal signs and how it impacts people who are born in any one of the twelve signs representing the zodiac. Saturn symbolizes the Karma (deeds) to be performed to uphold Dharma (righteousness) and hence he is known as ‘The Karmakaraka’. He is the signifier of hard work, perfection, spirituality, discipline, reverse engineering, slowing down of events, obstacles, delays and matters foreign to a native. Saturn is the most dreaded planet as it is considered the most malevolent amongst all natural malefics. Here, effects of Saturn transit are studied from different angles.

Astronomical data

Let us quickly glance though the astronomical data relating to the impending transit of Saturn over Sagittarius.

On 20th June 2017, Retrograde Saturn enters Jyeshta (4th Pada). It becomes direct in the same sign (Scorpio) on 25th August’2017. Then, it moves over to Sagittarius by stepping into Moola 1st Pada on 26th October’17. It moves on to Moola 2nd Pada on 28th November’2017.It steps into Moola 3rd Pada on 26th December’2017 and moves on to Moola 4th Pada on 24th January’2018.It enters Poorvashada 1st Pada on 2nd March’2018 where it gets retrograde during the period 18th April’2018 to 5th June’2018. In retrogression it moves to Moola 4th Pada and stays there from 6th June’2018 to 6th September’ 2018. It resumes direct motion on 7th September’2018 and continues in Moola 4th Pada till 27th November’2018. It moves through Poorvashada star from 28th November’2018 to 29th April’2019. It gets retrograde in the same star (Poorvashada) from 30th April’2019 to 18th September’2019. After that, it resumes direct motion, traverses through the quarters of Poorvashada between 19th September 2019 and 26th December 2019. Then it moves into Uttarashada 1st Pada on 27th December’2019 and stays there itself till it makes its final transit to Capricorn on 24th January’2020.

The movement of Saturn is explained in the flowchart below:

Saturn in Mythology

In order to explain profound Astrological truths, our forefathers used to employ didactic fables to educate laymen on the intricacies of the science. There are many fables about Saturn from which we can learn how cosmic forces operate in our life. The guilty are always punished for their evil deeds and Saturn exists in order to mete out that punishment. Here, is an important story which deals with how King Vikramaditya had to undergo considerable hardship while Sade Sathi was in operation.

The story of King Vikramaditya and Sade Sathi

King Vikramaditya ruled over Ujjain. He was known for his wisdom, gallantry and magnanimity. His wife was Queen Madalekha.

Once, the nine planets or the navagrahas, went into a discussion about who is the most powerful amongst them. Since Rahu and Ketu were relatively smaller planets, they asked the other seven planets, namely, Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Saturn to decide on the matter. After many arguments, the planets could not arrive at a conclusion. So, they sought help from the King of devas, Lord Devendra. But, Lord Indra felt that if he gives a judgement in favour of one planet, all other planets will become dissatisfied with him. Hence, he advised the planets to seek the opinion of the King (Vikramaditya).

Heeding the advice of Lord Indra, the seven planets approached King Vikramaditya and sought his judgement. King Vikramaditya was overwhelmed to see the Gods. He treated them with utmost respect and devotion. Since he was dutiful, he accepted the onerous task before him, gracefully.

After giving a deep thought to the matter, King Vikramaditya arranged for seven thrones. These thrones were made of Gold, Bronze, Brass, Tin, Zinc, Mica and Iron respectively. The thrones were numbered with Gold as no.1 and Iron as no.7. Then, King Vikramaditya requested the seven Gods to grace the throne of their own accord. Lord Surya (Sun) chose the Golden chair while Lord Shani (Saturn) chose the Iron chair.When the seven Gods sat in the chair of their own volition, King Vikramaditya said “Now, according to the order of your throne you may decide your own rank and none can thrust my judgment upon you.”

Hearing this, Lord Shani (Saturn) stood up and said to the King, “You ranked me the lowest among the planets. You are unaware of my power and influence. Sun can stay in a Zodiac (Rashi) for one to two months; Mars for one and half months; Jupiter for a maximum of thirteen months; Mercury and Venus for one month; Rahu and Ketu for eighteen months. But, I am the the only planet who can influence a Zodiacal sign for two and half to seven and half years. This period is called Sade Sathi. Even the most powerful of all Gods tremble when they hear about Sade Sathi. When Lord Rama went through Sade Sathi he was banished from his own kingdom. Now, be prepared, for your turn, oh King Vikramaditya.” Saying this, Lord Shani disappeared.

Soon, Sade Sathi period started for King Vikramaditya. Saturn took the form of a rich merchant and entered Ujjain to sell horses. King Vikramaditya heard of the excellent horses and sent his men to buy the good ones. Hearing their exorbitant prices, the King came to see the horses himself and liked one of them so much that the merchant asked him to try it out. The moment he sat on it, the horse galloped at enormous speed into the jungles where he managed to jump and get off. But by then, he had lost his way and he had no option but to wait till dawn when, a passing cowherd showed him the way to the nearest town.At the Palace, Queen Madalekha was worried about the King. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Shani Bhagwan. So, she prayed to the Lord and requested him to save her husband. Due to her prayers, Lord Shani promised to save King Vikramaditya’s life, but on the condition that he has to undergo rigorous hardships due to his past karma.

King Vikramaditya finally reached a nearby town. In tattered clothes, he looked shabby like a beggar. Nobody recognized him as the King of Ujjain. A wealthy trader, who was on his way home, took pity on Vikramaditya and offered him food and shelter. King Vikramaditya started working as a domestic help in the trader’s house.

As days passed by, the trader grew attached to Vikramaditya and he gave him the responsibility of making arrangements for his daughter’s wedding ceremony. So, Vikramaditya went to the market to purchase the required items for the marriage ceremony. There, he met a mysterious man who was none other than Lord Shani in disguise who gave Vikramaditya ,the picture of a duck and disappeared. Vikramaditya, unassumingly took it home.

That night, Vikramaditya was baffled by a strange sight. The duck in the picture was swallowing a gold necklace which was to be worn by the trader’s daughter. Due to this, everyone in the trader’s house thought that Vikramaditya had stolen the necklace. The trader’s wife was so angry, that she got Vikramaditya arrested through King Chandrasena’s soldiers.

King Chandrasena was the enemy of King Vikramaditya. He recognized him as King Vikramaditya and ordered his soldiers to cut off his hands and feet in one stroke. The order was immediately executed. Two years later, when the daughter of a wealthy oil trader from Ujjain was passing by ,she immediately recognized King Vikramaditya. She took him home and informed her father of Vikramaditya’s fate. The oil trader put Vikramaditya on the job of pressing out the oil in return for food and clothing. As time went by, it became Vikramaditya’s daily chore to sing while passing time moving the oxen around the mill. He was a talented musician knowing all the ragas, he sang his heart out, until all of a sudden, the force and melody of his voice together caused all the lamps in the city to ignite spontaneously. King Chandrasena’s daughter who was standing in her balcony was marveled at the sight of all the lamps lighted up simultaneously. She sent her servants to investigate. Just then Vikramaditya had completed Raga Deepika, and all the lamps unexpectedly went out. The servants informed the princess that the person whose hands and legs were chopped off on her father’s orders was the singer. She sent him an invite to come and sing for her. Vikramaditya  declined the offer, thinking that Saturn might  not have finished with him yet, but on the insistence of the girl he agreed. Thereafter he kept singing various ragas for her, each appropriate for the time of the day or night. His Sade Sathi also was also coming to an end. The princess too had decided to get married to him only. When the King learnt of her intentions he tried dissuading her, but she wouldn’t relent and threatened to immolate herself if the King did not agree. Vikramaditya was unaware of this drama, and thought to himself that there was more misery left for him to undergo due to the influence of Saturn.

As Vikramaditya thought so, Saturn appeared before him and said, ‘’ O King Vikramaditya! Do you recognize me? Tell me how much suffering you endured by insulting me in your court.’’ Vikramaditya tried to rise to prostrate before Saturn, but being crippled he rolled to Saturn’s feet to pay him obeisance. Saturn said, ‘’Bravo! King Vikramaditya for your patience, you have endured great miseries, now request your heart’s desire from me.’’ Vikramaditya requested Saturn not to trouble anyone as he had troubled him. Saturn was pleased at the King’s selflessness and restored Vikramaditya’s hands and legs, besides his pristine glory.

The moral of the story is that Saturn is not per se evil;it is benevolent if one lives rightfully, truthfully and without ego. In Sade Sathi it creates circumstances to make a person egoistic, shows false promises and then humbles a person completely. Sade Sathi is a period of limitation; it is not only a period of introspection but also one of correction; if you do not heed Saturn’s influence you will suffer like King Vikramaditya .

Moorthy Nirnaya method 

The Moorthy Nirnaya method is well explained by Prof N E Muthuswamy in his magnum opus ” Dictionary of Astrology“.In this book ,the treatment is alike for both benefics as well as malefics.At the time of Saturn’s entry into Sagittarius, Moon will be in Poorvashada 4 – in Sagittarius Rashi. So, Saturn is Swarna Moorthi for Sagittarius, Cancer and Aquarius (1, 6 and 11 counted from Janma Rashi to Sagittarius). It is Rajata Moorthi for Scorpio, Leo and Aries (2, 5 and 9 from Janma Rashi). It is Tamra Moorthi for Libra, Gemini and Pisces (3,7 and 10 from Janma Rashi). It is Loha Moorthi for Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn (4, 8 and 12 from Janma Rashi).

Table 4 – Moorthi Nirnaya

Moorthi Effects Rashis
Swarna Moorthi Excellent Sagittarius, Cancer and Aquarius
Rajata Moorthi Good Scorpio, Leo and Aries
Tamra Moorthi Average Libra, Gemini and Pisces
Loha Moorthi Bad Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn

Saturn Transit reckoned from Birth Star(Janma Nakshathra):

The Star which Saturn transits reckoned from Janma Nakshatra has vital importance in judging the nature of results. This is called Anga Shani. This can be judged from Table 5.

Table 5 – Anga Shani

Star Part of the body Result
1 Face Fear, Loss
2 to 5 Left Shoulder Success
6 to 11 Leg Illness / worries
12 to 16 Heart Gain of Money
17 to 20 Right Shoulder Fear
21 to 23 Head Gain of Status
24,25 Eyes Comfort
26,27 Anus Fear of Death

Saturn Transit Recoked from Birth Sign (Janma Rashi):

  1. Ardhashtama or Kantaka Sani (Saturn in 4th from Natal Moon)
  2. Ashtama Sani (Saturn in 8th from Natal Moon)
  3. 71/2 years Sade Sathi Sani (Saturn in 12th, 1st and 2nd from Natal Moon)

Saturn completes one round of the zodiac in 30 years and remains in a Rashi for 21/2 years. He gives good results only in the 3rd ,6th  and 11th Rashis from birth Moon. In all other houses, he is malefic. This means that in one round of Saturn he gives good results in 2½ x 3 = 7½years, i.e., 3, 6 and 11 from Natal Moon and in remaining 9 Rashis, (22½ years) bad results. Now, we will see how the intensity of malefic results are distributed during each of his round.

  1. He is good in the 3rd, 6th and 11th houses.
  2. In the 5th, 9th and 10th houses he gives moderately bad results.
  3. In 4th house called Ardhashtama or Kantaka Sani ,he gives bad results which is worse than in 5, 9 and 10 .
  4. In 8th, he is called Ashtama Sani which gives bad results only.
  5. In 12 and 2nd houses it is the first and last 2½ years of Sadhe Sathi. This also is a bad period only.
  6. Janma Sani is the period of 2½years when Saturn is in Natal Moon sign and it is a highly malefic period and even dangerous to life.

Out of these, Ashtama Sani and Ardhashtama Sani are called Kalyani and Laghu Kalyani in some texts prevalent in northern India. For Laghu Kalyani or Ardhashtama Sani, i.e., Saturn in 4th, the following results are given:- 

There will be diseases, enmity with relatives and friends, miseries, sorrows, unwanted wandering to various places without any aim or benefit and mental worries.

For the Deergayush Jataka, the first round of Saturn is called in Tamil as “Mangu Sani” which means dull Sani. The next round of 71/2 years of Saturn is called “Pongu Sani” which means overflowing Sani. The third round Saturn is called “Kungu Sani” which means depressing Sani. Now, we will look into the nature of these 4 rounds of Saturn.

  1. Mangu Sani : This can also be called manda (dull) Sani. During this period there will be many difficulties. There will be harassment from government, many trials and ordeals including bad health. Education will be spoiled.
  1. Pongu Sani : This can be called as Fertile Sani. Auspicious functions like education, marriages, fruitful project work, etc. may be finished by the native.

The first part will however be bad. In the last part, all that is lost during Sade Sathi will be regained or compensated.

  1. Kungu Sani (frozen): This can be called depressing Saturn. During third round of Saturn’s Sade Sathi, those who have long life will suffer from mental worries, agony, mourning, death of relatives, sorrows, miseries. If the allotted life span is over, the native may even pass away.
  1. Marana Sani: This is very bad. If the native does not die during third round of Sade Sathi, then during this period if life span gets completed, certainly one passes away.

Out of all the above four rounds only the 2½years of Janma Sani is very bad. Tamil texts declare special results for this Janma Sani. There will be fear of death (during Janma Sani of 3rd round or 4th round). In other rounds, there will be petty quarrels, many chronic diseases, humiliation, loss of self-respect, fear of death, mental agony, hysteria, confusion etc.

Saturn’s 7½years results can be analysed in yet another way. The total 90 months period is distributed among the limbs of the native with specific results as given below:

  Total 90 months

Saturn transit from Ashtakavarga angle

When Saturn in his Ashtakavarga transits a house which has zero to eight bindus, the results are as follows:

Table 7 – Transit Effects from Astakavarga Angle

8           One becomes the head of a village or town
7           One gets female slaves, camels and other animals
6           One gains respect from the leaders of thieves
5           One gets bountiful agricultural produce
4           Moderate happiness
3            Loss of wealth
2            Imprisonment, sickness, anxiety , poverty stricken
 1           Sickness
 0           Loss of everything ,death
 

Please note that interpretation of transit results without considering Ashtakavarga angle would lead to erroneous results.In an article of this nature it is impossible to take into consideration all the individual charts.Hence the Astrologer should take all the predictions as generic in nature and not announce this to an individual without taking his/her Ashtakavarga chart into consideration.Transit rules are generic in nature.Ashtakavarga system enables correlation of transit results with reference to an individual’s chart.Without Ashtakavarga system,transit rules will only lead to vague conjectures.Only with the help of Ashtakavarga ,an erudite Astrologer can interpret transit results with the support of the natal chart.

 

General Remedial Measures:

In general, to alleviate the adverse effects of Saturn, the following remedial measures are adopted.

  1. Worshiping Lord Hanuman and reciting Sundara Khand portion of Ramayan.
  2. Reciting Hanuman Chalisa or reciting the Moola mantra of Shani.
  3. Donating sesame oil to temples.
  4. Lighting lamp with Sesame oil at a Shani shrine or at a Shiva temple.
  5. Fasting on Saturdays and feeding the poor on Saturdays.
  6. Feeding crows and donating black clothes.
  7. Chanting of Shani sahasranamam and Dasaratha Shani stotram
  8. Visiting places such as Tirunallar,Thirukollikadu and Shani Singhnapur.

Brahmanda Purana” says that chanting the following sloka can relieve all the ill effects of Saturn. 

“ Suryaputhro Deerghadeho Vishaalaakshah Shivapriyah |

Mandachaarah Prasannathmaa peedam harathu me Shanih ||  

Let Shani Bhagwan – who is the son of Sun-God, having a long body and large eyes, who is a devotee of Lord Shiva and who is of slow gait and who is pure in Spirit- remove all my ills.

Saturday is the most appropriate day for worshipping Lord Shani. Those who have afflicted Saturn in their horoscope should wear Blue Sapphire and light a lamp( with sesame oil ) on Saturdays for propitiating Lord Shani. This would alleviate the adverse effects of Saturn to a great extent.

Favourable influence of Lord Shani will result in good health, success in all endeavours, peace of mind, prosperity and zest for life. Worship of Lord Hanuman is considered a panacea for the evil effects of Shani Dev because Lord Hanuman is said to have rescued Lord Shani from the clutches of the demon-king Ravana.

Visit to Thirunallar is  essential to overcome the adverse transit of Saturn. Here is the procedure: Take a black piece of cloth, some new clothes for doing charity, one coconut, a certain sum of money for donation and another sum of money for charity.

  1. Wash your feet or if possible take bath in Nala Theertham. Leave the black cloth in Nala Theertham.
  1. Break the coconut and worship “Kali Theertha Vinayagar”.
  1. Worship Goddess Parvati, Lord Shiva (as Dharbaranyeshwarar) and Lord

Shani Bhagwan. Drop the (initial) sum of money in the Temple Hundi.

  1. To some deserving person, donate new clothes.
  1. If beggars are found, give them money ( the second sum) as charity and old clothes for their use.Those who are affluent can buy new clothes and give them as donation.Please note that donation of torn clothes will only add to our existing balance of sins.
  1. Please note that after visiting Thirunallar, you need to go home directly without visiting anyone’s house or any other temple.

Thirukollikaadu Shani Bhagwan is supposed to be a deity who blesses devotees with abundance. Shani Bhagwan was very upset for he was being held responsible for all the woes of human beings. He prayed to Agneeswarar,( Lord Siva) at Thirukollikaadu after bathing in the Agni theertham. Lord Siva gave him darshan and praised him for being a just planet, meting out justice impartially based on the deeds of human beings. He further pleased Shani Bhagwan by asking him to reside in the temple as Pongu Shani, showering his blessings on devotees.This temple is located in Thirukollikadu near Thiruthuraipoondi in Thiruvarur district in Tamilnadu. Agni Bhagavan is said to have worshipped lord Siva here and hence the name Agneeswarar and the place came to be known as Agnipuri. King Nala who got rid of his Shani dosham at Tirunallar, is said to have got back his wife, children, kingdom and all wealth after worshipping Shani Bhagwan at this temple.A Chola king with heavy Shani dosha finally got relief from his sufferings upon worshipping  Shani Bhagwan at Thirukollikaadu.King Harichandra is also said to have bathed at this place and was finally relieved of his dosha by the grace of Thirukollikadu Shani Bhagwan. The river where he bathed is named after him.

While we are on this discussion, we will take a look at Shani Singhnapur temple, which is located at about 75 miles from Nashik. This place is famous for the fact that there are no locks in any of the houses here and despite this fact, no thefts have been reported. The temple is supported to be one which is “alive” (Jagrat devasthan) where Shani Dev is supposed to punish anyone who attempts to steal. Needless to say, no lock or key is required here when a Super Power like Saturn keeps eternal vigil. Even a public sector bank has opened a “Lockless” branch taking note of the zero-crime rate of this region. The deity here is “Swayambhu” or self-born and is believed to be in existence since the advent of Kali yuga.

Sculpture of Lord Shanidev with Lord Hanuman in Shignapur

Another peculiar feature of this temple is that there is no roof over the deity. Devotees throng this temple on the day of “Shani Amavasya” which occurs when the New Moon day falls on a Saturday. Pilgrims going to Shirdi for having a darshan at the famous Sai Baba temple seldom fail to go to Shani Singhnapur. Shani Singhnapur is considered as a significant place of pilgrimage to ward off the evil effects of Saturn like its southern equivalent, Tirunallar in Tamilnadu.

Astrologers often stress the negative side of Saturn, yet if you want to be ‘friendly’with Saturn, worship him at Kuchanur, 75 kms away from Madurai, Tamil Nadu. Kuchanur is a small village and the temple here is exclusively dedicated to the planet Saturn. Generally, in most of the temples, Lord Saneeswara is seen in either among the Navagrahas or in separate small shrine. The small temple is seen on the bank of a flowing river called Surabhi, surrounded by Green paddy fields and Coconut trees. Here, Lord Sani is also called as ‘Kuchanooran’.

The idol here resembles a Lingam, which is considered to be a Swayambu (emerged on its own; self-manifested). The idol is believed to be growing in size over the years.

Legend:

King Dhinakran of Kalinga remained childless for many years. He prayed to God for a child. A divine-voice informed him that soon a Brahmin boy would visit him and then he would be blessed with a child. In the same manner, the boy came and he was adopted by the King. He was named Chandravadana. The king was also soon blessed with a male child. When the adopted son was crowned, the King was about to start on his very troublesome Sade-sati period. To save his adopted father from the consequences of Sade-sati, Chandravadana sat on a penance in a dense forest, to invoke the blessings of Lord Saneeswara. Moved by his prayers, Lord Sani appeared before him and granted the boon that the King would suffer only for seven and half hours, instead of seven and half years. That place later came to be called as Kuchanur, as Chandravadana built a small temple there for Lord Sani with ‘Kuchu’ grass. Saneeswara had assured Chandravadana that he would not harm those who remain righteous, just and disciplined.

Special poojas and worship are done on Saturday, in the solar month of Cancer (16 July – 17 August). Also the days of Saturn’s transit to the next Zodiac sign are observed with special festivities and poojas.

Procedure for worshipping Lord Saturn at Kuchanur:

Before entering the temple for worship, devotees take oil bath (Keeping a little Gingelly oil on the head) in the Surabhi river and leave the dress in the river (for charity). Taking bath in this running water is said to absolve the sins of previous birth.

  • Feed the crows with cooked rice, mixed with Sesame seeds.
  • Devotees offer clay models of Crow to Lord Sani
  • Light lamps with Gingelly oil.
  • Do charity (especially anna-dhaana) to the poor, sick, handicapped and old people.

Mundane Forecasts:

The Karma-karaka enters the Bhagyasthana of the Kala Purusha Rashi Chakra, which indicates that people will become more religious and give importance to their traditional values. Surge in religious activities is expected. During the year 2017 North East monsoon will be buoyant and there could be about 5 to 6 major cyclones. The Coastal regions of Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh would get excess rainfall on account of these cyclones. The governments in these states need to take note of this forecast with caution and be on alert as cyclones tend to form and gather momentum rather rapidly. Reservoirs will be full to the brim and on account of this the water crisis in these rainfall-deficit states would be solved for the time being. Saturn in Moola Nakshathra could cause heavy losses to commodity dealers who deal in perishable items.  Hospitals and high profile socialites will come under scanner for flouting rules and regulations. Arms dealers will attract controversies and face action from Government. Hotels and FMCG merchants will face stringent regulations from government. India’s GDP growth will be around 7.5. Martian aspect on retrograde Saturn could prove to be explosively dangerous for Pakistan. About December 2017, Pakistan will turn extremely volatile and face lots of sanctions. Martian opposition to Saturn on 30th May’2017 will heat up the Syrian War and the US will be exposed to a serious national calamity. On 21st August 2017,  on the day of Total Solar Eclipse, killings and Public protests will erupt in The USA.Saturn is in Mutual Square with Mars on 10th October’2017.This will stimulate seismic activity in several vulnerable zones of the world. Heavy rains will occur in desert areas. Cattle will be affected with new types of diseases. Mars- Jupiter Conjunction in January 2018 will see Major EU countries considering more stringent measures for reining in Russian attacks in Syria.

Sign-wise Forecasts:

ARIES (Ashwini, Bharani and Krittika-1):  

Personal & Domestic:

Saturn who is the 10th and 11th house lord for you moves from 8th to 9th house from your Janma Rashi. This is a period which marks great reduction to your problems, health issues, concerns and troubles,which you have faced in the last 21/2 years. Saturn’s entry in the most powerful trikona will strengthen your spiritual pursuit and you will get more time to focus on that. Better times are ahead as Saturn occupies the Bhagyasthana. Wealth, prosperity and fortunes will improve, gradually though. Being Rajata Moorthi, Saturn’s transit augurs well for Aries natives.

Career & Business:

10th Lord transiting through 9th house will increase opportunities for overseas travel. As he is also the 11th Lord, good gains can also be expected from those opportunities. Long pending promotions, pay- revisions or increments

will materialize. You need to be vigilant when Saturn turns retrograde. As his aspect falls on the 11th house, unexpected gains will accrue and ties with elders in family will improve. He also aspects the 3rd house with his 7th aspect and hence your communication skills will be more effective. 10th aspect falls on 6th where Jupiter is present and hence health will improve a lot. Loans will get settled and lawsuits will get concluded in your favour. You will emerge victorious over enemies.

Students:

Students will focus on their studies but still their concentration will be below optimum levels. Time is good to take control over all sorts of emotions and become more composed. You will face opposition at home. Friends will turn indifferent. You will get good guidance from teachers.

Women:

Career women will have a tough time balancing their jobs at home and at office, but still they will succeed. Children could become more demanding and obsessed with their priorities. Housewives will get lesser attention from their life partners. General domestic happiness will be missing to some extent.

Finance:

Mesha rasi (Aries Sign) persons would enjoy enormous gains and benefits by way of additional income .  You will reap unexpected monetary Windfalls.

Aswini:

You are likely to go on a pilgrimage. You will get rid of all the problems, troubles, pain and unnecessary court cases that you have faced so far.Ties with the employers (or) senior level employees will remain uncomfortable

Bharani:

You will get rid of the problems that you have faced in your business and you will get normal profits. Unnecessary confusion will  decrease and happiness will go up.

Krittika:

Health will be good. Your new endeavors will be successful as luck is in your favor.

Vedic Remedies

Read Hanuman Chalisa daily. Recitation of verses from Sundara Khandam would be helpful. Read Shani Chalisa daily.

TAURUS(Krittika-2,3 & 4,Rohini and Mrigasirsha 1& 2):

Personal & Domestic:

Shani who was in Sapthamasthana(7th house) and giving you good luck is going to your Ashthamasthana (8th house) and this is some kind of an alarm bell for you. You will face more obstacles and setbacks. Financial troubles may arise. As things may not work according to your plan, mental stress and tensions will increase. Under Moorthi Nirnaya , Saturn becomes ‘Loha Moorthi’ and hence going may get tough, once tough Saturn gets going! But, Shani being the Yogakaraka for your Janma Rashi, the troubles will get mitigated automatically and the transit doesn’t pose any big threats. In short, a benign judge cannot give you a malicious sentence!
