Lord Saturn is a Karmic Planet. In the history of humankind, lord Saturn is being prayed for years and have been worshipped due to fear, for getting strength or to clear ones Karma (deeds). Every person in this world are generating Karma each moment. For example, when any one thinks negative about any person, a Karma is generated. Some expostulate and often are enthralled to do negative things for others. However, it is said that The Evil you do Remains with You, The Good you Do comes Back To You. Lord Saturn is dreaded over centuries but if one studies in detail, then one analyses that Lord Saturn provides results as per ones past Karma (deeds) in this life or previous lives. The way it is done is unknown and very formidable to understand. Lord Saturn gives results very slowly and steadily. However, it depends on the type of house (from the Ascendant/Lagna) it is placed and the nakshatra it is moving.
Given below is a chart of Ms Indira Gandhi as received from websites and it seems that She is born in Ashlesha Nakshatra with Saturn placed in Cancer.
Vedic Astrology Chart of Ms Indira Gandhi:
Let’s judge here as to What Saturn did for her by placing himself in the first house of Lagna or Ascendant. Saturn is the lord of her 7th house and 8th house from the ascendant. Now let us analyse Ashlesha Nakshatra, which is ruled by Mercury and its Lord is the Nagas (Serpent). So, Saturn sitting here makes Ms Indira Gandhi intelligent and through courage She was able to tackle her opponents. Here Saturn also makes one to cling to ones loved ones and She was not willing to leave her close associates from moving from her. Since Saturn is sitting in pada 2, Saturn is in full power which led her to be a great Mass Leader and a great orator since Ashlesha is ruled by Lord Mercury; the planet of communication. However, placement of Saturn made her work a lot and that led her to sleep for only few hours. Saturn here has some aspect in the 4th house, which separated her from her mother in the childhood days and Saturn’s position was also the reason for her mother not keeping well. Saturn also has aspects on her second house which led to problems in her immediate family. Tenth aspect of Saturn on her work life made her world famous with tenth lord in second house. However, Ashlesha is a difficult nakshatra and every planet situated here goes under major transformation. Hence, though she was a mass leader and there was major transformation in her career, she broke Congress to create Congress (I). These is a general prediction based on placement of Saturn, which is shared for better analysis on the subject.
Coming back to our topic Retrograde movement of Saturn in Sagittarius, its going to increase opportunities for various sectors like Water, Agriculture, Tea, Coffee, Cold drinks etc. Here it is to be remembered that Saturn is moving backward in the celestial sky. In his milky way galaxy, it is observed that when Earth moves faster than any other planet, it seems that the planet is moving backwards and that is observed as retrograde motion. The retrograde motion of a planet is an optical illusion when Planet Earth passes slower moving planets further out in the orbit.
Purva Ashadha Nakshatra is a nakshatra which is 13 degree 20 minutes to 26 degree and 40 minutes in Sagitatarius and is ruled by Lord Venus. The deity of this Nakshatra is Apas, the God of Water. So, when Saturn the karmic planet moves in backward position in this Karmic sign where Purva meaning first and Ashadha meaning not subdued, it indicates that these people irrespective of any challenges will move on. So, Saturn opens opportunities for these people now. On the other hand, Saturn the Karmic planet will test ones Karma here and by that, I mean Saturn will test one’s patience with anger. No matter, how much one provokes a native, it is wise to keep calm during this Saturn retrograde movement.
Saturn’s retrograde will be good for Sagittarius moon sign natives (as per vedic astrology) as they can now explore possibilities and will be able to get back their inner strength, Capricorn moon sign natives may need to travel and work more hard during this time as they are in sade satti (7 and a half years of movement of Saturn over their natal moon). Aquarius Moon sign people will have to face some difficult situation, in which they may not be happy. Pisces Moon sign natives may have to work harder in offices, Aries Moon sign may have again some issues with father or father like figures or may take up some spiritual travels, Taurus moon sign people may face some challenges regarding ancestral property and may become busy with their health more, Gemini Moon sign people may have some issues with business partnership or may have some issues with ones spouse, Cancer moon sign people may face some struggles in their career, life and food. Leo Moon Sign people may focus more on their creativity and written abilities, Virgo Moon Sign people may feel like coming back to their own home or may become nostalgic. They may also have issues with one’s mother. Libra Moon sign natives may have some issues with their cousins, younger siblings or on joining any other bigger organizations, Scorpio Moon Sign people may have problems again on their income, job and family. These Moon Signs are based on Vedic Astrology and not by date of birth as per Western Astrology.
