Saturn will enter Scorpio on 2nd November 2014 and will stay in the sign of Mars for next 2 ½ year moving direct and retrograde till January 26, 2017 before entering Sagittarius.
During the last 2 ½ years it was observed that despite Saturn being in Libra which is its sign of exaltation it did not have a smooth run because Dragon head or Rahu was conjoined with Saturn for almost 18 months. After that Saturn went retrograde, therefore despite being exalted Saturn was unable to give the kind of results that it should have delivered. Now Saturn enters into the house of an inimical planet and is likely to bring further clash of two strong energies going forward.
Saturn being the slowest of all the planets it moves only 1 degree per month and it is known as the great Purifier as it influences cleaning of past and bad Karmas through perseverance. Its entry into the house of Mars indicates transformation, change and unraveling of mysteries. Mars signifies ego while Saturn signifies humility and service, a difference that is easy to understand if we look at the fact that Saturn depresses the ego and the self-esteem of Mars when in Scorpio and pushes it towards humbleness and modesty. Saturn brings delay that teaches the native persistence and pushes Karmic teaching which may be distressing and painful but brings compassion and kindness. As Saturn is the planet for service and Mars is the planet for initiative this transit signifies the direction that should be looked into, unlike what many people say about Saturn, it generally take the native to great heights through his own efforts, hard work and determination.
During the transit into Scorpio, Saturn will transiting through Vishakha star of Jupiter followed by its own star Anuradha and Jyeshtha star of Mercury. This is going to be a period of extreme volatility and the same will be seen in stocks, commodities and world politics. Extreme ups and down in important commodity cannot be ruled out. Those born in the above stars will feel the impetus more as Saturn will pass through these stars in the transit ahead.
This Transit is also not very good for those whose Moon sign or Rashi is Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius, as they will be passing through their period of Sadesatti. Aries born native will face hurdles and obstacles as they will have Ashtam Shani or Saturn transiting the 8th house and also for natives born under the Leo sign as Saturn will be transiting in the 4th house, which is the house of family peace and comforts. This period is also not good for those under the Mahadasha of Saturn.
