Saturn's transit over Aquarius
By Dr. E.S. Neelakantan
Lal Kitab Remedies by Rajeev K. Khattar
THE most-dreaded transit in the world is that of Saturn, while the most eagerly awaited transit is again, that of Saturn. How is it so contradictory? Those under the grip of Saturn await its transit to the next sign, while those enjoying a favorable Saturn fear its transit! 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 it is known as "The Karma Karaka". It 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 malefic planets of Vedic Astrology. Here, the effects of Saturn's transit are studied from different angles.

Moorthi 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 Aquarius, Moon will be in Anuradha Star (Pada 1). So Saturn is Swarna Moorthi for Capricorn, Gemini and Scorpio (1, 6 and 11 counted from Janma Rasi to Scorpio). It is Rajata Moorthi for Libra, Cancer and Pisces (2, 5 and 9 from JanmaRasi). It is Tamra Moorthi for Virgo, Taurus and Aquarius (3, 7 and 10 from JanmaRasi). It is Loha Moorthi for Leo, Aries and Sagittarius (4, 8 and 12 from JanmaRasi)

Table-4: Moorthi Nirnaya
Moorthi Effects Rahis
Swarms Maarthi Excellent Capricorn, Gemini and Scorpio
Rajato Moorthi Good Libra, Cancer and Pisces
Tamra Moorthi Average Virgo, Tarus and Aquarius
Loha Moorthi Bad Leo, Aries and Sagittarius

Saturn Transit reckoned from Birth Star (Janma Nakshathra):
The Star in 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 from Ashtakavarga angle
When Saturn in his Ashtakavarga transits a house which has zero to eight bindus, the results are as follows:

Table-6: Transit Effects from Astakavarga Angle
8One become the head of a village or town
7One gets fool slaves, came and other animals
6One gains respect from the leaders o thieves
5One gels bountiful agricultural produce
4Moderate happiness
3Los of wealth
2Imprisonment, sickness, anxiety, poverty stricken
0Loss 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.

Mundane Forecasts:
The transit of Saturn into Aquarius is highly beneficial.
  • For India, the march towards becoming a super power will continue. There will be considerable increase in Job Growth rate and youth will be benefitted much.
  • Only strong leaders will survive this transit and inefficient leaders will fade into oblivion.
  • The GDP of the economy will grow at an impressive rate. The law will be applied in a stern way and illegal activities will be curbed. During this transit, there will be no appreciable decline in Sensex and there will be steady growth. Due to discovery of crude oil and other measures, there will be decline in India's import of petroleum. Similarly gold reserves will be unearthed and there will be less of Gold imports.
  • The focus will be on administered prices and the common man will not be made to suffer due to fluctuation of prices in the market.

US Dollars will lose its sheen and eventually it will settle down to a figure of Rs. 55 compared to one US Dollar.
  • Despite a good start, Shabaz Sherif may not be able to make the necessary inroads into the minds of the public, and consequently Imran Khan would stage a comeback. Both Sri Lanka and Pakistan would maintain harmonious relationship with India.
