Saturn Retrograde in PurvaAshada


Purvaashada is the Nakshatra called Former Conquered. Ruled by Venus, its Vedic Deity is Apah – the Water Goddess. Purvaashada has the ability to withdraw the potential of people from within and bring it to light. The latent energy is brought to light and the person is guided to valuable insights in life.

The water has a property to wash off all impurities. This nakshatra functions in a similar fashion. It purges off impurities and posions like the feelings of jealousy , disease, hatred, ignorance etc, thereby preparing for the final victory – materially and spiritually. When the potential of the person is realised, a point in life may come where the person may think that he is the conqueror and the creative powers are his instead of acknowledging the Grace from above. This can seem to go to the head of the person concerned and they can try to act God at a number of places. The person can undergo some trying experiences and situations in life to go through the test of life and for his/her true potential to be unearthed before the person can achieve great heights.


Planets and bodies can appear to be moving backwards in the sky for a period of time, and are said to be retrograde. “Appears” is the key word here, because, technically speaking, no planet actually moves backwards in their orbits around the Sun. In fact, they don’t even slow down. Retrograde-station-direct cycles are essentially illusions that result from our point of view from Earth, simply because the Earth is also orbiting the Sun at a different speed than the other planets.

When a planet or body is retrograde in the birth chart, its energies are turned inward. They’re often felt more strongly, but there is something about the planet’s energies that the native keeps hidden or undercover. There can be shyness, discomfort, or awkwardness delaying the expression of the planet’s energy directly or overtly.

Sometimes there is denial, something lacking, or something missing in early childhood, and there are delays associated with the retrograde planet’s energies. Perhaps for a Saturn retrograde person, there was a lack of discipline or structure, or possibly an authority figure in the childhood, and the native feels awkward in a situation that calls for specific rules or protocol as a result. On the flip side, there may have been overly strict influences in youth, and the end result is similar – the native often feels guilty and worries excessively about meeting responsibilities, how others think of them, and how to play by the rules. resources.
