SATURN TRANSITS IN CAPRICORN
Saturn is the Karma karaka and the karaka for work and profession. The 10th House of the natural Zodiac is the Capricorn and it is ruled by Saturn. Capricorn is represented by a crocodile with the face of a deer.
The Nakshatras in Capricorn are
Uttaraashada Nakshatra – 3 padas
Shravana Nakshatra – 4 padas
Dhanistha Nakshatra – 2 padas
The Deities of these Nakshatras are Vishwadevtas, Lord Vishnu, and the Astavasus respectively and their Vimshottari Dasha rulers are Sun, Moon, and Mars.
Saturn is said to be strict discipline and is also said to be a restrictive planet. As I see it, Saturn provides the framework and boundaries for doing a better job. It helps in defining the area one can work on and gives us the guidelines to do things properly. If we look at it from a different perceptive, Saturn actually makes life easier for us.
For the Aries Lagna, Saturn moves to its own house and in its Vargottam Pada so for nearly 3 and half months, Saturn remains in the sign of Capricorn. This is a great time for people to structurize their professional and financial life as Saturn stays in the 10th House of your Lagna Chart. As Saturn is the planet of contraction, it gives us an opportunity to consolidate our work and business and set new rules. It also gives one the opportunity to get the administrative aspect of running and improvise on the existing system. As Saturn is a planet of ethics and morals, setting it up properly as regards to your business will help you a long way. Moving into the 2nd House from that of the father, it implores you to pay special attention to your father’s health. Saturn and the 10th House represent your mother in law and you may need to pay extra attention to her.
For the Taurus Lagna, Saturn moves in the 9th House and remains so in the D 9 for more than 3 months, becoming very effective and efficient during that period. As the 9th House represents Justice and Law, it is time when Saturn will exert its karaka was in that regard. As the 9th House also represents luck, Saturn would be favoring you in the areas where you have worked hard to deserve it. As Saturn represents old age and 9th Housefather, you need to learn to understand your father’s qualities, not judge them or else you too would be judged. Any help or advice coming from old and aged wise people in your life should be paid heed to.
For the Gemini Lagna, the Lord the 8th House moves into the 8th House and is likely to be there in the Navamsha for a period of 3 and a half months. This period is likely to bring about a lot of changes in your life for the better. You may not realize this on the onset but over a period of time, this will prove beneficial for you. You should really take care of your health and habits as any slip in this zone can leave behind a lingering health issue. You should also treat your inlaws, especially mother in law with care and not get into any form of a scuffle with them. You may inherit some old ancestral property if you have the rightful ownership to it.
For the Cancer Lagna, the 7th Lord goes into the 7th House. It is the time when your spouse will be the taskmaster for you and you will have to relent to his/her wishes. It is time for you to work and make your partnerships more effective and secure. A need to define your area in the partnership will seem impertinent and you would have to pull up your socks. It is also the time when you will need to prove your place in society which will work great for you in the long run. Saturn is also tall so to make your stature tall in society, you would need to work hard and to make a point. Saturn in the 7th House gives you the opportunity and ability to do selfless service so any charitable work or work is done to uplift the lower sections of the people in your society should work for you.
For the Leo Lagna, the 6th Lord of work , diseases, and legal issues is posited in the 6th House. Saturn is also given the Karaka of the 6th House and holds sway over it, thereby strengthening these characteristics. Any court case that you have been fighting should come up with the correct judgment as Saturn is also the judgment giver. Saturn is also the Karma Karaka so it also denotes your job and work profile. If you are strong on your values and steady, you will find promotion and appreciation coming your way. Remain on a strict health and diet regime as Saturn can take you to task on that ground if you slip.
For the Virgo Lagna, the 5th Lord moves in the 5th House and is likely to stay in the Navamsha for the next 3 and a half months. It is a time when you need to be disciplined about your studies and spiritual practices. It is also the time when you need to pay attention to your child/ren and also set certain routines for them to follow so that life becomes smoother for them on the long run. As the 5th House also represents elders, advice given by elders and Guru would be very beneficial for you. You should also make a note to do charitable work silently and without fail. It is best if you do not make investments for short term purposes in this period as they may not be very fruitful.
For the Libra Lagna, Saturn is the Lord of the 4th and 5th House and is the Yogakaraka. When Saturn returns to Capricorn in transit, this Yog is activated. The good deeds done by the native are multiplied and answered in plentiful. On the other hand, as the Karma Karaka, Saturn could also punish you for your wrong deeds, however, as the Lord of the 4th, it would be more on the lines of teaching a lesson so that you do not repeat your mistakes again. There would be celebrations in your family and also an opportunity to help an elderly female in the family. You could take upon studying something very old and ancient or could feel like investing in antique pieces for your home. It would be a worthy investment that will grow over time.
For the Scorpio Lagna, as your 3rd Lord goes in the 3rd House, and the Lord being Saturn, it needs persistent work and enterprise. Saturn represents old and here we see that any work that has been pending for a long time in your case can be completed with perfection. It is also the time when you would be called upon to draw from your reserve of patience and fortitude. As 3rd House also represents communication and oratorship, you may be called on to speak in any old organization or be a part of any old and established organization that hep you establish charitable deeds. It is also time to exert control over your speech and thoughts.
For the Sagittarius Lagna, the 2nd Lord moves in the 2nd House. This is the time to keep a good check on your family and finances. Things tht you have been working on for the past year will start giving financial result, albeit not as much as you expected. A little more hard work and persistent effect during the months of May, June and July should start yeilding results. There may be problems in the family that you would be called upon to handle and take tough yet rational decisions. Financially, you may feel the crunch for a time being which indicates that you need to show an ability to organise your financial situation for things to move in a smooth manner.
For the Capricorn Lagna, Saturn is the Lord of the Lagna and return to the Lagna after a period of 30 years and is likely to remain there for 3 months and more. It is the time when you would be able to use your talents to the best of your abilities as Uttaraashada Nakshatra gives you an edge over others. Your sterling qualitites will shine like the beacon of light and you will prove to be exceptional in whatever you do. As you move up the ladder under your own steam, you will find that you have managed to climb out from under other people’s shadow. It is the time to rise and shine and prove to one and all that you had it within you all along.
For the Aquarius Lagna, Saturn is the ruler of the Ascendant and the 12th House and is predominantly placed in the 12th House. As it is an airy planet is is likely to give you air travels on account of work. The 12th House also corresponds to ashrams, meditation, orphanges and hospitals and Saturn is known to be a meditative planet so it is likely that Saturn would give you the ability to meditate deeply and be able to connect to your inner guide and help. It is the time when you should make it a point to give in donations and charities as it increases the power of your Lagna Lord and also moves the energy from hospitals to some good work.
For the Pisces Lagna, as the 11th Lord moves in the 11th House for 3 and half months, it brings with it the ability to streamline your income and your contacts.
