Saturn’s Transit over Sagittarius
By Dr E S Neelakantan
Lal-kitab Remedies by Rajeev K. Khattar
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 someone either looks forward to or despises it 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 Karma karaka’. 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’s transit are studied from different angles.

Saturn 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 :
Table-1: Transit
Entry into sign Date Time
Sagittarius 26th Oct.2017 18:11hrs.
Capricorn 24th Jan.2020 12:11 hrs.

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 the same Sagittarius from 18th April’18 to 6th September’ 18. Saturn resumes Direct motion and continues in Sagittarius till 30th April’2019. It again becomes Retrograde between 30thApril’19 and 18thSeptember’19 and makes its next transit to its Capricorn on 24th January’2020.

Combustion is another phenomenon, which tends to affect the performance of a planet. It is important to know the dates of Combustion.

Moorthy Nirnaya method

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).

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

Mundane forecasts
The Karma-Karaka Saturn enters the Bhagyasthana(9th) of the Kala Purusha Rasi 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, Northeast 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. 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.

Saturn in the 9th; Jupiter in the 7th; Rahu in the 4th; Ketu in the 10th.

Personal & Domestic

Saturn, which is the 10th and 11th house lord for you, moves from 8th to 9th house from your Janma Rasi. This is a period, which marks great reduction to your problems, health issues, concerns and troubles, which you have faced in the last 2.5 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.

As its aspect falls on the 11th house, unexpected gains will accrue and ties with elders in family will improve. It also aspects the 3rd house with its 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.

In short, a benign judge cannot give you a malicious sentence!

Think twice before lending or taking loans. Those who are in Speculation business need to be extremely careful as Saturn is spoiling the Poorvapunyasthana (5th house) with its 10th aspect.

Not only is Ardhashtama Shani, a bottleneck as Loha Moorthi, but the presence of this planetary placement throws various challenges and disrupts domestic harmony. Your performance in job largely goes unnoticed due to the aspect of Saturn on your tenth house. One’s patience and self-esteem is put to litmus test. To some extent, the presence of Rahu in 11, ameliorates the situation.

Personal and domestic : Health of parents needs attention and so also personal care. One’s own health and moods would suffer ups and downs.

Having patiently withstood the onslaught by Saturn for the last five years, you have now entered the last lap of Sade-sati. Exercise patience, Be calm for the next two- and-a- half –years and be free of Saturn for the next twenty two years. There is a perception among astrologers that Saturn while leaving a sign would bless the native. The textbooks on astrology say that Sun and Mars, in their initial phase, Venus and Jupiter in the middle, Moon and Saturn in the end would give their effects. As the saying goes in cricket, “No game is over, till the last ball is bowled”. Those who are running a favourable dasa would see good results. As Rajata Moorthi, Saturn is sure to give good results.

Personal and domestic :

(Moola, Poorvashada and Uttarashada 1) :

Saturn in the 1st; Jupiter in the 11th; Rahu in the 8th; Ketu in the 2nd

You are now directly into the influence of Janma Shani. Danger from poison, imprisonment, danger from fire, misery, loss of wealth, aimless wandering in foreign lands, are said to be the effects of Janma Shani according to textbooks. I, for one would be to differ and say that if in your natal chart, Saturn gets 4 or more Bindus in your Moon- Sign in the BAV chart, Saturn will give good effects only. Further Jupiter will be in Libra from the last quarter of 2017 till the initial part of 2018. Jupiter in the 11th house will yield very good results. Those who are running auspicious dasas and bukthis would find Saturn’s impact to be minimal. Last but not the least, Saturn is Swarna Moorthi for your rasi, which is good. Merely commenting on Saturn’s transit to come out with doomsday predictions would nullify the spirit of astrology. So, you need not worry too much.

Personal and Domestic : Problems will crop up from all fronts; fear of failure looms large. Health and expenditure will be areas of concern. It is advisable to have home food most of the time. Consumption of Coffee, tea, alcohol and processed foods should be reduced to the barest minimum possible. Staying awake at night is not recommended. Court cases would go against you. Funds will become scarce and opportunity for earning money will decline.

Career and Business : Promotions are likely to get delayed. There will be stagnation in career. Job satisfaction will not be there. If you resign, you will not get another job immediately. Transfers and postings appear likely to undesirable places. New projects will get delayed. Speculations will yield losses. Overall, this is a period of stagnation in career

Students: Romance is on the cards, but that could lead to disappointment. Students will get affected by distractions. There could be problems in the campus with other students.

Women: You will undergo mood swings. Problems with opposite sex appear to be likely. Efforts will go unrewarded. Bosses will turn hostile and unappreciative. Travel will become weary and time-consuming.

Finance : You may have to face some financial problems. Stay cautious, while negotiating financial matters. In order to maintain a balance in the financial matters, you will have to increase your efforts.

Birth Star Predictions

Moola :
You may get financial benefits through an influential person or a senior official. Your involvement in spiritual affairs will increase.

(Uttarashada 2, 3 & 4, Sravana and Dhanishta 1,2):

Saturn in the 12th; Jupiter in the 10th; Rahu in the 7th; Ketu in the 1st.

Saturn gives unwanted expenditure while in 12,especially as Loha moorthi.

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.

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.
