Saturn Makes a Lucky Move in Vedic Astrology
Saturn Makes a Lucky Move
For the past few days (October 26), Saturn has been blessing us with its presence in the Vedic sign of Sagittarius. This relief comes after an almost 3-year sojourn in Scorpio where we all received a few well-landed blows, below the waist, from taskmaster Saturn.
For everyone, Saturn’s presence in Sagittarius (the sign of benefic Jupiter) is likely a welcome upgrade where we can now stop brooding in the Scorpionic dark and start to believe once again that there could be a Santa (or Saturn) Claus.
Saturn in the Vedic sign of Sagittarius, brings focus to our personal issues around the energies of expansions (Jupiter) and contraction (Saturn).
If we have over expanded our lives through excessive spending, eating, or mindless travel, we will learn that we must reel it in. On the other hand, if we have been habitually contracted by being overly serious, overly constrained and pessimistic, and too restrained in our actions to broaden our horizons and experiences, then we will need to self-correct and open up to new possibilities.
Saturn also brings focus to the karmic responsibilities in the area of your life that it is currently transiting. Relationships? Better understand what is really going on. Career? Time to buckle down and get it down. Creativity? Come on and write that book, sing that song.
To better appreciate the changes that this lucky move by Saturn could bring you, the following descriptions, listed according to your birth sign, can give you a little preview of Saturn in Scorpio in your life.
Ideally, you read the Vedic sign that your Moon was located at the time of your birth.
If you do not know your Vedic (not Western) Moon sign, then you can read the description that corresponds to your Vedic Sun sign based on your birthdate as given below. (Note that the Vedic dates for the Sun signs are different than Western).
Or, perhaps you should take this opportunity for an astrological check-up and have your astrologer give you the full picture of the changes that Saturn is bringing you.
ARIES (April 14-May 15)
Excellent for your health, travels (especially work related), and practical accomplishments. A time to relax from all the changes of the previous 2 ½ years and also to renew your spiritual practices. Your father may need additional attention during this time, or you may encounter teachers who challenge you to grow.
TAURUS (May 15-June 15)
Change and transformation are in the works. A great time to start or increase your yoga practice (particularly Kundalini Yoga) or investigate the occult sciences.
