Transit of Saturn Vis-a-Vis Effects of Saturn's Mahadasha

Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotshaacharya, PHD, MBA)

Saturn shall transit Leo for the month of Nov 2007. Leo is the sign owned and ruled by the Sun. Though Saturn is the son of Sun but astrologically they have come to stay as enemies. Hence, the period of Saturn transiting Leo cannot be good in any manner - of course subject to the strength of other planets including that of Jupiter- which changes the position on 22.11.2007 i.e. by entering into Sagittarius.

Saturn is at 2.31 degrees in Leo and would transit only few degrees till end of this month i.e. upto 14.15 degrees in Leo. In other words, Saturn shall transit 4th 'charan' of Magha (ruled by Ketu) and 1st 'charan' of Poorvaphalguni ruled by Venus. Saturn is already in the grip of Rahu and Ketu. In view of malefic influence of Saturn and associates, maelfic results shall be reaped by all unless personal horoscope is improved. Saturn shall aspect Sun upto 17-11-07.

Briefly, it is stated that natives shall have to work very hard, at times may become obstinate but sincere to the prestige of boss. Good income from vehicles, land and buildings indicated.

Children may suffer from physical ailments including retarded or "defective brain”. Some of them may suffer from paralysis or fainting fits. Hence the need to have medical help. Now in brief about Saturn’s Mahadasha.
