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.

Lord Saturn is likely to be in progressive on September 06, 2018 at 17.02 hrs.

Astrology Article 14: ALL ABOUT SPIRITUALITY AND EXPENDITURE IN LIFE: Importance of 12th House from Ascendant- A Vedic Astrology Analysis

Many a time people speak about much of expenditure and losses and the ways to avoid them. There are people who have lots of expenditure and not able to control those. This is analyzed and seen from the 12th house from ascendant from a Vedic horoscope. So, generally astrologers will tell you that the 12th house of a horoscope is about sorrow, worries, unfortunate incidents, isolation and whatever negative one can think off. Secret enemies are also seen and analyzed from the 12th house from ascendant and its lord. Karmic effects and loss due to marriage is also seen from the 12th House.

Now, lets discuss about the positive side of this house. If you want to go abroad, enjoy long voyages, or want to do selfless and profound service to the society it’s the 12th house which needs to be analyzed. If the native have a sound sleep in night, lets thank the 12th house and the planets positioned in it. Bed Pleasure is also analyzed from the 12th house from ascendant.

The interesting fact is 12th house is not only about financial expenses, it’s also about expenses of one’s energy to reach one’s goal. For example if Mercury is in the 12th house and is lord of the 12th house, that means, there is a loss in communication. But through this loss of energy in communication, a native can become a very well known writer or astrologer or an owner of a restaurant. So, here I mean to say that through persistent efforts and loss of energy a native fulfill his/her dreams. 12th house from ascendant also means working behind the scenes and helping someone else comes to limelight.

Suppose of the fourth house and the twelfth house are connected, it signifies a change of residence. It is also seen that if the second house (house of income) or the twelfth house is connected, a native may take up professions in the Hospitals, Monasteries etc.

Here let us discuss about placement of Lords in the twelfth house and general predictions:

If the Lagna/Ascendant Lord is in the 12th house, it indicates that the native wants to be in an isolated environment and these people loves to work in isolation. So, these people loves to take up profession like doctor, scientist doing research in a isolated places, sages etc. These people feels good when they settle or visit foreign lands.

If the Second lord in 12th house, it means that the native or native’s family might have migrated to a foreign land to make their own assets. They get their returns of their investment from foreign organizations. Also, these people are seekers of spirituality and make gains out of that.

If the Third Lord is in the 12th house means that one’s siblings like brothers or sister’s can settle in a foreign land. The native will be very spiritual in communicating and will love traveling to foreign lands. So, do not get surprised, if these people are great writers about spirituality and travel.

If the Fourth Lord is in the 12th house means that ones tradition and upbringings were from a spiritual background. It shows that the native’s mother will be spiritual and these people gets comforts of a good house or vehicles in a foreign land. These people can actually buy homes or vehicles in a distant land far away from home.

If the Fifth Lord is in the 12th house, that means that your self expression and creativity are best served in an isolated place probably when you are alone. These are signs of great writers or people who are extremely creative but can explore their best when they are alone. These also represents the fact that these people’s educational background can be in a foreign land and may deal with foreign stocks depending on the type of planets situated in the 12th house.

If the Sixth Lord is in the 12th house, then this means that you tend to be a healer and love to heal people in isolated places. These also means selfless service like doctors, nurses or working for ‘not for profit’ organizations. However, these combinations can have two extremes i.e one can have negative addictions or positive approach to life through healing. The said aspect depends of the strength of the planet and the type of planet placed in the 12th house.

If the Seventh lord is in the 12th house that means your spouse will be from foreign lands and the native will look forward to a spouse who will be spiritually connected. These people will marry an individual who will help the native to travel to foreign lands. This combination also means that the native will do business with Multinational companies or will invest or do business in foreign lands. This combination also means that the native may have expenditure due to spouse.

If the Eighth Lord is in the 12th house it causes Viprit Raj Yoga. It means that through worst situations, you gain something big. Sudden awaness of Spirituality, Celestrial powers, Getting sudden wealth in a foreign land etc. are seen from this horoscopes from this placement. It also means sudden gains in finances from spirituality.

If the Ninth Lord is in the 12th house it means that the native will travel across the seas, will reach to Spiritual Leaders in foreign lands, will travel to isolated places in the world and these people can make great astrologers. These combination will help one to be great writers depending on the position of Mercury.

If the Tenth Lord is in the 12th house, it means ones work environment will make one isolated from the outside world. These are the actual persons who work from behind the scenes. However, this also points out the fact that these people will not be satisfied at work and feel lost and lose their identity. These people can do very good in a creative field through their own imagination.

If the Eleventh Lord is in the 12th house, it means that one’s elder siblings might settle in foreign and the native may do investment in spiritual deeds, in foreign stocks or property. Most of the native’s friend can be from foreign lands.

If the Twelfth Lord is in the 12th house, it means that the 12th house lord will protect the native from the harmful impact of the twelfth house traits and will make contentment about the 12th house things. This makes the native have a balanced approach in life and depending upon the positions of the planets, this placement can make the native a great writer, if Mercury is placed in the same sign i.e in the twelfth house. Professionals of a great spiritual person or a great creator are also formed due to these placements.

Astrology Article 13: ALL ABOUT GAINS IN LIFE: Importance of 11th House from Ascendant- A Vedic Astrology Analysis


Have you thought about sudden gains in life or a token of huge finances suddenly coming your way. Well, all this has lots to do with the house of gains i.e the eleventh house in Vedic Astrology. So, if you speak or talk about your ambitions, aspirations, hopes and realization, this is the house from the ascendant one should look into. The eleventh house has lots to do about ones elder brother/sister, ones daughter in law or son in law. This house is the fruit of one’s tremendous hard work. Success in any undertakings can be seen from this house also.

However, there are times when this eleventh house also acts as one’s barrier. The eleventh House Lord can also act as a blocking planet for ascendants. But nevertheless this is the house of great gains. The eleventh house is also about discharge from hospitals, release from jails or returns home. Generally a planet sitting in this house gives gain as per the qualities and karaka of the planets it signifies.

Here is an interesting fact. Since the third, seventh and the eleventh house from the ascendant are houses signifying air, so if any of these houses are connected in one or the other way, then the native have great opportunities of Air Travel. The eleventh house also deals with friendship, so real friends in life can be analyzed from this vedic horoscope.
Here are some interesting facts which I have observed seeing various charts. If the second house lord is placed in the eleventh house then money or finances comes to the person very easily. Since this house is second from the tenth, so this house also signifies income from profession. If the eleventh lord is in the eleventh house and is also in strength in D9 Chart, then the native will be very rich, will own vehicles and have servants.

The above write up is a general prediction and these are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.
