Saturn’s Retrogression Based on Natal


When in the 3rd, the 6th and the 11th there will be definite all-round improvement in health during the Dasa or Antardasas of Saturn.

When in the 1st, the 4th, the 7th and the 10th wanderings and ill-health consistent with other Dasa results will ensue.

In the 2nd, the 5th, the 8th, the 9th and the 12th Saturn’s retrogression is definitely bad for chronic sufferers. Even if they are free from diseases, they will suffer according to the house, drekkana and birth star denoting the seats of diseases.

It is said that benefics when in retrogression in angles or trines give good results. This may be true with regard to other matters. But as far as health is concerned, again the part of the body represented by a house, star or drekkana will suffer.

Broadly speaking Jupiter is a first-rate benefic and results of his retrogression are put forth, as under:–

Jupiter’s Retrogression in Gochara

Jupiter in the Moon-sign:–He gives intense worries on account of ill-health. Restlessness is the rule. The person becomes phlegmatic and irritable. The diseases represented by Jupiter are:- Jaundice, diseases of liver, vertigo, gallbladder, sleeping sickness, anemia, idiosyncrasies and allergies.

In the 2nd House:– The person exhibits calmness and takes decision coolly. Unless Jupiter is a maraka, the native will enjoy good health throughout the sojourn of this planet in the 2nd. His spouse also will come out of frigid condition.

In the 3rd House:–The health of near relatives like brothers and father-in-law will improve. But he himself becomes a coward during this retrogression.

In the 4th House-–Mother’s health will improve and he too will find out that he has no cause for worry and becomes more confident in his work.

In the 5th House:–This is good. Retrogression in the 5th generally brings about a fine feeling, intellect becomes sharp, and since his children would fare well, he will be mostly in a happy mood. Petty gains in speculation may add to his sense of well- being.

In the 6th House:– Some secret disease will develop often eluding doctors. Though not a serious condition, it causes worries all the time compounded with worldly failures.

In the 7th House:–He enjoys once again a happy home. May have a second honey-Moon. Practically all worries disappear. His face shines and he will exhibit agility and vigours, and freed from existing diseases.

In the 8th House:–This is a house of chronic illness. Any planet which is slow-moving and becomes retrograde always worsens the existing diseases and consequent heavy expenditure and worries.

In the 9th House:– Retrogression of Jupiter in the 9th is the best time in transit and the Dasa will be the best if the planet

retrogrades in natal chart. All sorts of benefits accrue and the person is practically free of all diseases and ailments.

In the 10th House:–Retrograde Jupiter here causes biliousness and laziness. Jupiter in Saturn’s house always loses his good effects. Even if in natal chart he is in the 10th no good will come out of it. The person encounters a lot of upsets in service or profession. Though no serious disease will develop the mind becomes sluggish, apprehensive of something or other.

In the 11th House:–This is again one of the best places for retrogression of this planet. The native enjoys good health, money, women and wine.

In the 12th House: - Loss of sleep and bed comfort. Generally lassitude and a sense of frustration leading to some hasty action and consequent suffering.

In the natal chart

Retrogression in the 2nd, the 4th, the 5th, the 7th, the 9th and the 11th always good for general health. But retrogression in the 1st, the 3rd, the 6th, the 8th, the 10th and the 12th likely to aggravate existing diseases.
