Saturn Transit 2011

Everyone in astrology knows that Saturn is the single most powerful planet. He can make or mar a person. Once a king by the name ‘Nala’ lost his kingdom and was reduced to a cook because of the devastating influence of Saturn.
Saturn does not even spare Gods. It is said that during Saturn’s time Ganesha’s human head was cut off by Shiva. Shiva himself started to beg during Saturn’s period. Nevertheless, he appointed Saturn to do a certain job and that is to bring people to justice (Dharma) through intense hardship and suffering. Shiva Himself underwent the humiliation of a beggar just to teach a lesson to the human beings and also to demonstrate the power of Saturn.
 Saturn is the slowest moving planet. It takes 30 years for him to complete one cycle of his revolution through the 12 zodiacs. He spends roughly about 2 ½ years in each sign.
 Saturn’s transit is a major astrological event and it is keenly watched and analysed by astrologers all over the world. This year Saturn moves into Libra on 15th November 2011 and this event has special connotation for two important reasons.
  • He moves to his exaltation sign and his best friend’s house (Athi Mithra). Therefore his power to do good / bad is that much enhanced.
  • He will stay in Libra for 3 years until 2nd November 2014 which is more than 6 months longer than his usual stay of 2.5 years
While analyzing transit of Saturn, we say that he is good in 3rd, 6th and 11th Houses from natal Moon and in remaining places he is adverse. These adverse placements are further classified as follows and constitute positions which are generally considered as negative placements
  • 12th,1st (Janma) and 2nd Houses constitute ‘Sade Sathi’ – Virgo, Libra & Scorpio
  • 4th House – Ardaastama Shani /Daiyya – Cancer
  • 5th House – Panchama Shani – Gemini
  • 8th House – Astama Shani – Pisces
There is no reason to fear Saturn and an average lethargic type may, of course, experience Saturn as a hard task-master. And for someone Saturn may feel demanding – and slow with its rewards. But there will be rewards, eventually. They may be slow in coming, because Saturn first wants to test you to be sure that you are in earnest, that you will not revert back to your old lazy tricks. You have to have deeper motives, a true desire to grow even when there are no carrots dangling in front of you. You have to show Saturn that you are doing something for doing’s sake, not because you are expecting Saturn to pat you on your back.
 The predictions given below for each Rashi is general in nature. Do not be afraid if Saturn is adversely placed for your Rashi. Please check your Dasha & Bhukti currently operating and other planetary movements during the period. If the Dasha & Bhukti is good, many adverse predictions may not happen or will be mitigated. If you have further doubts please consult your astrologer.
