Does Saturn Play a Role in World Happenings – Transit 2017

Planet Saturn in Vedic astrology has been given more importance with reference to one’s karma. Astrological Planet Rahu and Ketu is also known as the Karmic Planet and Planet Saturn provides results based on one’s Karma (deeds). Planet Saturn is a dreaded slow moving planet and provides results based on its transits in different zodiac houses and nakshatras. Right now Planet Saturn is in Jyeshtha Nakshatra and will move to Moola Nakshatra ruled by planet Ketu on 26 October, 2017. This transit will affect different zodiac people as well as different nakshatra in various ways. Some may be benefitted and for others, this transit can throw challenging situations.

Planet Saturn plays a very important role in any person’s rise or fortune. As per the mythological story, Saturn is a planet which grants result as per one’s karma. So, whether one gets good effect or bad result depends on one karmic action performed earlier or in previous births. Saturn plays a vital role in one’s professional life. A well placed Saturn in one’s chart helps to rise high in life but with lots of struggle. A position attained through struggle is generally retained for long if the assignment awarded is due to lord Saturn.

As per the mythology, Saturn is the Son of Surya and Chaya. Saturn has a very strained relation with his father Surya or Lord Sun. That’s the reason, during the Sade-Satti Phase, the zodiac Leo ruled by Lord Sun suffers the most. Saturn represents the old people, disabled people and humans who are not benefitted in the society. Oil, Gas and Petroleum Sector is also ruled by Saturn. In the human body, Saturn rules the bones. So, if anyone has problems related to bones, it is generally due to the malefic effect of Saturn.


Saturn Dristi is the 3rd house, 7th house and 10th house. So, whenever Saturn looks into these houses, there is a problem related to those houses. Saturn in turn protects the house in which it is positioned.

Transit of Saturn into Sagittarius this 26 October, 2017 will be the starting of the seven years Sade Satti Phase for the Capricorn Moon Signs. This will also lead to peak time sade satti for Sagittarius Moon Signs and will be the last phase of the Scorpio Moon Signs. Additionally the Moon sign Zodiacs, who are going to be affected, are Gemini and Virgo. The Zodiac’s who will be relieved during this time from Dhaiya is Leo, Taurus and to some extent Aries. Options and Opportunities are going to open up for the Natal Moon Signs of Leo, Taurus and Aries. The moon signs of Aquarius will be towards a major period of opportunities and new beginnings.

Sade Satti happens when Saturn the karmic planet travels the natal Moon sign in the twelfth, first and the second house. Sade Satti is not bad, but it acts as life’s teacher. During the first phase, an individual tends to make mistakes which turns to be a learning lesson for the individual. The second phase disturbs ones health and the third phase leads to maximum travel in one’s life due to various reasons. However, there are cases, where it has been observed that Sade Satti have actually helped an individual lead a great life during its peak time phase. All this depends on the analysis of the total chart and the horoscope analysis done based on several parameters.
