Saturn Makes a (Big) Move in Vedic Astrology
Saturn Makes a (Big) Move
This January 23rd, Saturn moves into the Vedic sign of Capricorn, and it affects us all in significant ways.
Saturn, the slowest moving of the visible planets, only changes signs every 2 ½ years and thereby affects a different area of our lives for the next 30 months.
As the planet of karma, lessons, challenges, and Doing the Right Thing (no matter how hard), Saturn will make sure that until late 2022, we will have the opportunity and obligation to pay careful attention to a specific area of our lives, such as career, relationships, or spirituality.
Which area of your life will Saturn focus where work will be done?
To get the best information, you need to know your Vedic Moon sign and/or rising sign and read the description(s) below for the sign.
