Saturn takes 29.46 years for one full round of the Zodiac, So it shows its influence for 30 Years per sign, starting from the Birth sign. This amounts to proportionately one year per degree, so an 11degree natal Saturn indicates 19 years of influence left on the natal sign  in terms of age. Accordingly the Next sign will be from 19 years to 49 years.

It is Very interesting to note that many secrets of Hindu Astrology are found abundantly in the Nadi-Granthas what we call Nadi Principles

According to Nadi Principles Saturn Transit results can be delineated from 4 different Phases as follows

1.House wise Results of Saturn

Meaning that the House from which the 8th house when Transited by Saturn and the other 3 houses from which the respective 8th house when aspected by Saturn, suffer afflictions. To understand the above verse, we have to take the house from where the Saturn is Transiting and the 3rd house which Saturn is aspecting.

When Saturn Transits the ASC, it is the 8th house from the 6th house ,Saturn 3rd aspect falls on the 3rd house, it is the 8th from the 8th house. Saturn 7th aspect here will be on the 7th house , it is the 8th from the 12th house and the 10th aspect falls on the 10th house , which is the 8th from the 3rd house , Hence When Saturn is Transiting in the Lagna , it is most malefic and unfavorable in matters connected to 6,8, 12 and the 3rd house. Saturn also does not have Digbala in the Lagna and for this Reason Saturn Debilitates in the Lagna of the Natural Zodiac and not considered good in the Lagna. In the Present Context Saturn Transit over the Sagitarius Lagna and the Sagitarius Moon sign in Lagna may not be good for the Matters related to the 6,8,12th and the 3rd house , Specially in the Nakshatra of Ketu .

2. Saturn Transit Results as Counted from Chander Navamsha Rashi. When Saturn Transits the Chander  navamsha Rashi in the Birth chart or the sign occupied by Moon in the Rashi chart, the native suffers from fear from enemies, mental anguish, humiliation from secret blemish, meaning when Saturn Transits the 8th house from Chander Navamsha Rashi, the native will suffer great calamity during Rahu Dasha period and will have termination of some running favorable  YogPhala or Yoga Bhang Results.

When Saturn Transits the 7th house from the Chander Navamsha Rashi, the native gets obesity during Mars Anter dasha of Rahu Period

3. Degree wise Results of Saturn over the Trines to the 7 planets  and the nodes

When Saturn Transits over a position which is identical degree wise to the natal position or its Trine position, it gives unfavorable results

The Natal Planet (As Significator)

The House owned by the Planet

The house occupied by the Planet

4. Degree wise Transit Results of Saturn over the Lord of the 8th house or its Trines

Mental upsets due to denial of Results, signified by the house, Inheritance, Gada hua Dhan. When Saturn coincides with the natal  position, it gives Trouble according to the Houses in the natal chart

See the Chart below for Saturn Transit In Sagitarius.



Let us also See the 5 limbs of the day when Saturn ingresses in Sagitarius

Day is Thursday and the Lord is Jupiter

Tithi is KP-14

Nakshatra P Shadha

Yoga Vajra

Karna Shakuni , hence the Lord here is Sun in the 6th house

SunRise is 07-21 hrs , hence the Day Lord Jupiter is in the yama of Scorpio  the 4th house of the Ingress chart and the Lord is placed in the 8th house .The 8th Lord is also Badly afflicted by Both Mars and the 2nd House .This Parameter is  Strong Malefic  for the Significations of the 2nd house and Jupiter. This is indicative of Financial Recession which may Escalate after the ingress of Saturn in Sagitarius more so since Saturn is the 10th and the 11th Lord of the natural Zodiac and Jupiter is the 9th and the 12th lord of the natural Zodiac, and the aspect of  Bhadak Saturn on Jupiter afflicts Jupiter badly . Saturn 10th aspect is also very Powerful , Hence till Jupiter is there in Virgo till 17th Sept. 2017 the Financial Growth may not be there.

Saturn will Transit in the 9th house of the natural Zodiac as a Bhadak and also Aspect the 9th Lord Placed in the 6th house Virgo, Hence there could be Communal Differences Sprouting and Temples and Mandir under Threat from untoward happenings, In fact Relation of Saturn aspect on Jupiter is not good , hence till Jupiter is there in Virgo till 17th Sept. 2017 the Growth may be restrained to a large extent.

Transit of Planets and Specially Saturn is the fructifying Factor for the Promise in the Chart along with Condusive Dasha
