Saturn's Transit over Capricorn
By Dr E S Neelakantan
Lal-kitab Remedies by Rajiv 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 ensuing transit! Let us analyze the effects of this transit for individuals, both Star-wise and Sign-wise. We will also look into the mundane effects that will be felt by this transit.

From the day Saturn enters Capricorn till the day it enters Aquarius, the movement of Saturn is as follows:-
On 24th January 2020, Saturn transits into Capricorn, by entering Uttarashada (2ndPada). It moves to Uttarashada 3rd Pada on 23rd February 2020, and to 4th Pada on the 3rd April 2020.
Saturn becomes retrograde in Uttarashada 4th Pada on 11th May 2020. Retrograde Saturn enters Uttarashada 3rd Pada on 19th June 2020. Then it retrogrades on to Uttarashada 2nd pada on 6th August 2020 and remains in retrograde motion there till 29thSepetember 2020.
On 29 Sept. 2020, Saturn regains the Direct motion in the same pada. After that, on 20th November 2020, it enters Uttarashada 3rd Pada and on 24th December 2020, it moves on to Uttarashada 4th Pada.
It enters into next Nakshthra, Sravana 1st Pada on 22nd Jan 2021. Saturn moves through Sravana 2nd and 3rdPada on 20th February 2021 and on 25th March 2021respectively.
The next Retrograde period of Saturn starts on 23rd May 2021 in Sravana 3rd Pada, continuously retrogrades onto Sravana 2nd Pada on 24th July 2021 and Sravana 1st pada on 13th September 2021.
It resumes Direct motion on 7th September’2018 and continues in Moola 4th Pada, till 27th November'2018.
Saturn turns Direct in Sravana 1st Pada on 11th October 2021 and continues Direct motion by entering Sravana 2nd, 3rd and 4th pada on 7th November 2021, 21st December 2021, 21st January 2022 respectively
Saturn moves on to the next star, Dhanishta 1st Pada on 18th February 2022. On 19th March 2022 it moves on to Dhanishta 2nd Pada. On 29th April 2022, it enters Dhanishta 3rd Pada, thereby making its transit to the next sign, Aquarius.

  Tables given below are lucid illustrations of the movements of Saturn, explained above.
Table-1: Transit
Entry into sign Date Time
Capricorn 24th January'2020 12:11
Aquarius 29th April'2022 00:01

The next aspect we need to take note of are the retrograde movements of Saturn. Saturn is retrograde for a period of 141 days, before commencing Direct motion. It assumes Retrograde motion in Capricorn from 11thMay'20 to 29th September' 20. The next phase of Retrogression for Saturn is from 23rd May'21 to 11th October'21 before entering Aquarius on 29thApril'2022.

Saturn in Mythology

Lessons to be learnt in Sade Sathi
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.

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

Table-4: Moorthi Nirnaya
Moorthi Effects Rashis
Swarna Moorthi Excellent Capricorn, Leo and Pisces
Rajata Moorthi Good Sagittarius, Virgo and Taurus
Tamra Moorthi Average Scorpio, Cancer and Aries
Loha Moorthi Bad Libra, Gemini and Aquarius

Saturn Transit reckoned from Birth Star (JanmaNakshatra):

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
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 Rasi):
1. Ardhashtama or KantakaSani (Saturn in 4th from Natal Moon)
2. AshtamaSani (Saturn in 8th from Natal Moon)
3. 7˝ years Sade Sathi-Sathi (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 2˝ years. He gives good results only in the 3rd,6thand 11thRashis from birth Moon. In all other houses, he is malefic. This means that in one round of Saturn, he gives good results in 2˝x 3 = 7˝years, i.e., 3, 6 and 11 from Natal Moon and in remaining 9 Rashis, (22˝years) bad results. Now, we will see how the intensity of malefic results are distributed, during each of his rounds.

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

Out of these, AshtamaSani and ArdhashtamaSani are called Kalyani and LaghuKalyani in some texts, prevalent in Northern India. For LaghuKalyani or ArdhashtamaSani, 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 DeergayushJataka, the first round of Saturn is called as “ManguSani which means dull Sani. The next round of 71/2 years of Saturn is called “PonguSani” which means overflowing Sani. The third round Saturn is called “KunguSani”, which means depressing Sani. Now, we will look into the nature of these 4 rounds of Saturn.

1. ManguSani: This can also be called manda (dull) Sani. During this period, there will be many difficulties. There will be harassment from Government, besides many trials and ordeals including bad health. Education will be spoiled.
2. PonguSani: This can be called as Fertile Sani. Auspicious endeavours like achievements in education, marriages, fruitful project work, etc. may be 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.
3. KunguSani (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 and mourning, death of relatives, sorrows and miseries. If the allotted life span is over, the native may even pass away.
4. Marana Sani: This is very bad. If the native does not die during third round of Sade Sathi, then during this period,if the astrological life-span in the natal chart is over, death occurs.
Out of all the above four rounds, only the 2˝years of JanmaSani is very bad. Ancient Tamil texts declare special results for this JanmaSani. There will be fear of death (during JanmaSani 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 7˝years 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:

Table-6: Shani Sade Sati Transit Effects
S.No. House from Janma Rashi No.of Months Parts of the body Results
1. Vyaya(12) 7 Head Difficulties and Loss
2. Vyaya(12) 9 Eyes Loss
3Vyaya(12)8FaceGain of money
4Vyaya(12)6NeckGain of money
5JanmaRashi(1)10HeartGain of money
6JanmaRashi(1)11StomachGain of money
Total90 months

Saturn transit from Ashtakavarga angle
When Saturn in its Ashtakavarga transits a house which has zero to eight Bindus, the results are as follows:

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

Please note that interpretation of transit results without considering Ashtakavarga angle would lead to erroneous results. 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 natal chart.

Mundane Forecasts:

The Karma-karaka enters Capricorn, which is its own rashi and also its Moolatrikonarasi. Those who felt oppressed by job conditions would find their working conditions and terms of employment change for the better.

One who says a glass is half-full is an optimist, while one who says a glass is half-empty is a pessimist. Should we now celebrate the end of AshtamaShani or be worried about NavamaShani? Whichever way you look at it, this is a period which brings about great reduction to your problems, health issues, concerns and troubles, which have been with you over the last two-and-a half years.

(Mrigasirsa 3 & 4, Arudra and Punarvasu 1,2& 3)

Saturn, moving from the rather neutral 7th to the "AshtamaSthana" could set the alarm bells ringing.

In addition, Saturn happens to be the least desirable "Lohamoorthi". Financial troubles could arise. Health of relatives requires caution. However, the fact that Saturn is in its own house coupled with the fact that it owns the 9th, could mitigate the "sentence" that the "tough Judge" Saturn could possibly give.

Personal and Domestic : Keeping low profile, avoiding unnecessary arguments could maintain domestic harmony. Spend a lot of time in meditation and reading holy books, Demands from children will increase, and make you restless.

Career and Business: Duties require performance with utmost attention to details. Avoid entering into any form of controversy. As Saturn aspects your tenth house, you need to put in extra efforts, even to derive ordinary results. You should ensure that your professional rivals do not tarnish your reputation, by giving your job extra care in your duties.

Students : You will need to put in extra hours of study, to cope up with the academic requirements. Those who are planning to go abroad for higher studies will need to take up special coaching classes. You may not have the mental strength or fortitude to take on the challenges. Romantic affairs will hit roadblocks. Misunderstanding with friends and classmates become more frequent.

Women : There will be some troubles on account of children. You will need to keep reminding your children, all the time, to attend to their duties. You will get some help from your husband. There will be increase in domestic expenditure.

Finance : There will be unexpected windfalls. It could also come through the benevolence of your relatives abroad. Your purse will be filled to the brim. Most of your financial desires will get fulfilled. Giving loans and borrowing are both avoidable. Saturn tends to spoil your fifth house by aspect, and therefore you need to avoid speculation. Be vigilant in matters relating to finance, especially expenditure.

Birth Star Predictions

Mrigasira (3, 4) :
There will be some hindrances in life. Do not worry, but keep working hard. Offerring prayers at temples and doing Vedic rituals at home will suffice.

Arudra :
You will have conflicts both at home and in the office. You will get misunderstood, for no fault of yours. Minor health issues are likely. The best course of action would be to keep calm at all times.

Punarvasu(1, 2, 3) :
There will be unexpected gains, windfalls and inflow of money from new sources. You are advised to save money, utilising the current benevolence of planets to build a financial corpus for your retirement needs.

Vedic Remedies :
To overcome the eighth house impact of Saturn, you have to visit Thirunallar. Recite DasarathaShaniStotra daily. Those who are well-versed in Vedas can chant or listen to NavagrahaSuktam or RudramChamakam. Donating food to beggars or providing food to crows will certainly help.

Lal-kitab Remedies :
Wear slippers, while taking bath.
Not to wear Black clothes.



(Punarvasu 4, Pushya,Aslesha)

Saturn in the 7th may cause a few issues to your spouse or to your partner,

but the fact that Saturn occupies its own house, Capricorn will negate any possibility of an adverse effect. Further Saturn as "Tamramoorthi" would deliver ordinary results only, and may not ameliorate the adverse effects of the 7th house.

Personal and Domestic : There will be few problems on the marital front. Sustained efforts would lead to success in ventures. It is better to take care of health. Mother's health requires constant monitoring.

Career and Business: Promotions will get postponed. Office atmosphere will not present a picture of harmony. There will be moments of stress, anxiety and tension. The movement of Jupiter into Capricorn in 2020, will prove to be a blessing.

Students : There will be lots of distractions due to trips. There will be accumulation of homework, and this could prove to be a burden. Internal assessment tests will prove to be cumbersome. There would be setbacks to romantic ties, but eventually they will culminate in marriage, in times to come.

Women : Working women will face difficulties on account of health problems. There will be expenditure on account of capitation fees and hike in tuition fees. Children turn out to be recalcitrant.

Finance : In order to prevent things getting out of control, one has to be conservative in spending. An occasional windfall cannot be ruled out. Money comes from abroad. Foreign ties will yield copious income. Hard work yields bumper results, translating into income.

Personal and domestic : Domestic quarrels may erupt suddenly. Saturn's aspect on 6th house rashi will lead to expenditure on medical treatments. Comforts and amenities will get affected.

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

1. Worshipping 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.
7. Feeding crows and donating black clothes.
8. Chanting of Shani Sahasranamam and Dasaratha Shani stotram.
9. Visiting places such as Tirunallar,Tirukollikadu and Shani Shingnapur.

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

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. 2. Break the Coconut and worship "Kali Theertha Vinayagar". 3. Worship Goddess Parvati, Lord Shiva (as Dharbaranyeshwarar) and Lord. Shani Bhagwan. Drop the (initial) sum of money in the Temple Hundi. 4. To some deserving person, donate new clothes. 5. 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. 6. 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, because he was being held responsible for all the woes of human beings. He prayed to Agneeswarar, (Lord Shiva) at Thirukollikaadu, after bathing in the Agni Theerth. Lord Shiva 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 Fertile / prosperous 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 Shiva here and hence the name Agneeswarar and the place came to be known as Agnipuri. King Nala who got rid of his Shani dosha 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 Harischandra 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.

Shani Shingnapur temple, which is located at about 75 miles from Nashik, 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-manifested 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 Shinghnapur 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. 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.

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.
