Saturn’s Transit – 2014

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 Scorpio on 2nd November 2014 and he will stay in Scorpio until 26th January 2017 and again as Retrograde from 22 Jun 2017 to 26 Oct 2017.
 
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’ –  Sagittarius, Scorpio & Libra
  • 4th House – Ardaastama Shani /Daiyya – Leo
  • 5th House – Panchama Shani – Cancer
  • 8th House – Astama Shani – Aries
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.

Delays could also be experienced in initiating and forming new ventures.

Latta

9 Aug
Astrologers practicing Parashari method have two main tools for ‘Timing an Event’, namely, Dasha & Bhukti and Transit predictions. The irony is that  Dasha & Bhukti can be used independently, whereas Transit has to be read in conjunction with Dasha & Bhukti. To be precise, the result obtained by Transit has to be supported by the results of Dasha & Bhukti otherwise Transit results may not happen.
 
Latta is a part of Transit predictions and as such it has to be read in conjunction with the prevailing Dasha & Bhukti of the native.
 
This word Latta means ‘Kick’ or Obstruction. During transit, a planet transiting a particular Nakshatra will afflict another Nakshatra at a distance.  If the afflicted Nakshatra happens to be your Janma Nakshatra, you are said to be under the influence of Latta of that particular planet. This distance is measured either forward or backward from that particular Nakshatra. The forward measurement is called “Purolatta” or Forward kick and backward measurement is called “Prustolatta” or Backward kick.
 
Purolatta Group                                         Prustolatta Group
Sun – 12th  forward                                   Moon – 22nd  backward
Mars – 3rd  forward                                    Mercury – 7th backward
Jupiter – 6th  forward                                 Venus – 5th  backward
Saturn – 8th  forward                                 Rahu/ Ketu – 9th backward
 
Example:
  1. If Sun occupies, at any time Moola Nakshatra, his Latta Nakshatra will be Krittika which 12th from Moola counting forward.
  2. If Venus occupies Sravana, his Latta Nakshatra will be Jyestha which is 5th from Sravana counting backwards
Effects
  1. The general effect of Latta is bad.
  2. If the Natal star comes under the Latta effects of two or more planets, bad effects will be greatly enhanced.
  3. Sun’s Latta causes loss of entire effects of the native, trouble from Government and trouble for father.
  4. Moon’s Latta causes great loss 
  5. Mars Latta causes utter ruination and  trouble from co-borns.
  6. Mercury causes fall and disaster.
  7. Venus causes trouble to spouse.
  8. Jupiter causes death, ruin of relatives and insecurity.
  9. Saturn same as that of Sun, trouble from elder brother and body discomfort.
  10. Rahu causes trouble to grandfather and misery.
  11. Ketu cause trouble from reptiles, exile and misery.
Author’s Note
Generally Latta is considered bad and by taking remedial measures individual can get relief. Some Panchangas in South India (eg. Ontikoppal Panchangam) gives the dates of Latta of all planets during that year which affects different Janma Nakshatras. By knowing your Latta periods before hand you can be prepared to counter it.

Jupiter Transit – 2012

15 May

Hari Om

Sarve Janaha Sukhino Bavanthu

Jupiter Transit – 2012

It is again the time of the annual transit of Jupiter and the analysis of its results for 12 Rashis. Jupiter will transit from Aries to Taurus on 17th May 2012 and it will remain in Taurus for about a year, till 31st May 2013 to be precise.
 
In Vedic Astrology, Jupiter is regarded as the most auspicious planet among all the 9 planets, because of its abilities to bestow all that is good for a generous and respectful life. Jupiter is Guru or Teacher of Devatas and been conferred the title of “Devaguru”. He is the most auspicious and benefic planet. However, this does not imply or mean that He does not do any harm or damage. When Jupiter is malefic, it gives nothing but fear and tears. It ruins the reputation, destroys wealth and brings disaster in life.
 
 Jupiter takes about 12 years to complete cycle of 12 zodiac signs. It stays for about a year in each sign. Whenever Jupiter moves in to 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th houses from the Janmarashi it gives good results. We can say that the native has Gurubala. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces where it embodies all the planet’s positive aspects, and is exalted in Cancer where it expands the nurturing and mothering principle. Jupiter is debilitated in Capricorn and gives least results when posited there.
 
Jupiter is the significator for wealth, children, education, religion, prosperity, fame, gain, good marital order, providential help, political power, good luck, finances and long journeys. As regards health, Jupiter rules: blood, liver, arteries, thighs, neck, weight problems, diabetes, cataract, intoxication, biliousness, cholesterol.

Interpretation
I have been flooded with request to write about the art of transit interpretation as people are not satisfied with general results which are given for each Rashi. I might warn the readers that interpretation of transit results is not that easy and it is a intricate / complex process involving several factors. Therefore I am giving the methodology of the process of reading the results taking one sample case and the readers are advised to adopt / modify the same for their specific chart.
 
Workout the following to assess the goodness / evil nature and potency of Jupiter in your individual charts, by going through the following steps.
1. Identify your Janmarashi.
2. There are 12 ascendants and therefore Jupiter will have Lordship of two of the houses out of the twelve.
3. Out of the two lordships, both can be good / one bad & one good. Jupiter, wherever he is posited in dual houses will favour that house. For e.g. Jupiter for Leo Lagna will be 5th & 8th Lord and posited in Sagittarius will favour 5th house and accordingly give more results of 5th house.
4. Then we have to see Jupiter’s placement in the chart, viz. placed in Own House / Friend’s House /Enemy House / Exalted / Debilitated / retrograde.
5. Aspects and associations on / with Jupiter
6. Yogas formed by Jupiter.
7. Strength / Shadbala of Jupiter.
8. Check if Jupiter has any Veda (Obstruction)
9. Note down the Dasha / Bhukti running for you during the transit.
 
Overriding Clause
1. Reference Point: The reference or starting point for Transit prediction is the Janmarashi or the sign in which the Moon is posited in the natal chart. There are many astrologers who advocate interpretation with reference to Lagna or Ascendant but the classical texts recommend using Janmarashi only.
2. Dasha and Bhukti: Whatever interpretation we arrive at using above method must be supported by the Dasha and Bhukti currently running for the native. If the Dasha and Bhukti is not favourable then the results thus predicted may not come true.
Sample Case
 
                   Rashi Chart                                          Transit Chart – 18 May 2012
 
 
                                                                                 
                                                                                   
 
 
1. Lagna –Scorpio. Jupiter is Lord of 2nd & 5th Houses. Both houses are good.
2. Jupiter is Retrograde & Debilitated in 3rd House. In Enemy’s house with Retrograde Saturn (Lord of the house)
3. Janmarashi is Aries
4. Shadbala of Jupiter is the least, 74 amongst all the planets.
5. In present transit the native will have Jupiter in 2nd house basically indicating acquisition of wealth. This also indicates improvement in health and cordial relationship with near and dear ones. This also indicates that good things will happen to his kith and kin and his children.
6. Wealth from where, how and from whom and how much?
7. Jupiter being 2nd & 5th Lord, it will be self earned and /or from his issues. Basically it will be from the Karakatwas of those houses.
8. Jupiter posited in 3rd house also indicate that wealth can be from co-born or through courage and communication. Jupiter’s association with Saturn also indicates the wealth may be from Service.
9. The quantum will not be much because Jupiter is debilitated and has no strength.
10. The acquisition will also be erratic since he is retrograde. This will be compounded when transit Jupiter turns retrograde.
11. The result is also dependent on Saturn transit position which at the moment (6th form Natal Moon) is favourable. But when Saturn shifts to Libra on 04 Aug 2012, he will become unfavourable.
12. When Jupiter is in 2nd house Veda point in 12th. However no planet is posited there and hence there is no Veda. If there is Veda, his benefic character will be further reduced.
13. Native has started his Jupiter Mahadasha on 26 Jan 2012 and will have Jupiter Bhukti till March 2014 and therefore whatever Transit results are arrived at is being supported by Dasha & Bhukti.
14. We can reasonably conclude that Transit predictions will hold good.
 
Conclusion
People for whom Jupiter is in unfavourable position need not despair. Jupiter being the most benefic planet will normally not harm any native unless he is highly afflicted. As stated earlier Jupiter is the promoter par excellence, and we wish that all mankind receive his blessings for peace and harmony.
 
Propitiating Lord Shiva on Mondays and Thursdays and reciting following Mantras will mitigate difficulties.
 
Gayathri Mantra
Om Suraachaarya Vidmahe, Surasreshtaya dhimahi, tanno Guruh prachodayat”
Purana Mantra
                Devanam cha Rishinam cha Gurum kañchana-sannibhham

Saturn Transit – 2011

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.

Sapta Shalaka Chakra

18 Jul
                                                        Om Gurubyo Namaha
                                     SAPTA SHALAKA CHAKRA
 Purpose
  • To identify Nakshatra Veda
  • To predict transit results of planets traversing different Nakshatra vis-à-vis Janma Nakshatra.
 Construction
  • Draw seven horizontal lines from West to East and seven vertical lines from North to South as shown in the diagram below.
  • Staring from North East corner place all 28 Nakshatras including Abhijit at each consecutive ends commencing from Krittika (see diagram)

Sapta Shalaka Chakra

Interpretation
  • Nakshatra opposite to each other causes Nakshatra Veda. For example, Krittika causes Veda to Shravana and vice versa.
  • If the star occupied by the Sun at the time happens to be:
    • The Vedha star to the Janma Nakshatra, there will be apprehension of danger to life.
    • The Adhana Nakshatra (19th from the Janma Nakshatra), there will be fear and anxiety;
    • The  Kharmaksha (10th from the Janma Nakshatra), loss of wealth will take place.
    • If the Sun in the above position be also associated with a malefic, death alone has to be expected.
  • If any one of the three Nakshatras mentioned above be thus afflicted by association of other malefics (other than the Sun) then death may occur;
  • If with benefics, there will be no danger to life. Everything should be judged in the same manner.
  • If the 19th, 10th, 3rd, 1st, 23rd, 5th or 7th (all reckoned from the Janma Nakshatra) are afflicted by malefics during their transit, there will be danger to life. If the planet be benefic, failure in undertaking will be the only result.
  • If the three Nakshatras, namely, the 1st, the 10th and the 19th happen to coincide with the Sun’s entry into a new sign, or with the transit of any other planets from one sign to another, or with an eclipse, planetary war, or a fall of meteors or any other unexpected occurrence, there will be likelihood of death of the native or he will face some similar disaster.
