Saturn in Magha

Saturn in Magha

“Yoga is 99% practice & 1% theory.” — B.K.S. Iyengar

The first pada is Saturn’s debilitated navamsha. They are likely to work in government service, working with the mass in a one size fits all sort of way. Of course this greatly restricts a persons expressions of personal or original intelligence, but it’s great for people we expect to remain impartial like police, judges, care workers; but also office administrators, and more routine public service clerks. There is typically no glamour is this position, just a lot of hard, thankless work. Some might even describe it as somewhat soul crushing. The sacrifices Saturn makes just seems to get eaten up in Ketu’s black hole; sucked up by his vacuum. It might be difficult to see the meaning and magic of life. The wonder is often missing from these people for most of their lives.

They might find themselves with heavy responsibilities for children. This may be their own children, step children, or some kind of social services or government employee responsible for children: social work, criminal justice, group homes, orphan care and this kind of thing. They might be surrounded by childlike wonder but have little opportunity for such past-times themselves.

As a child they might have only had older people, servants and workers to “play” with. We loose this term loosely in this case. “After your chores are done; then you can play.” But the chores never end. In early life they will most certainly feel as though they are denied what they are entitled to. This can be a delay in in getting returns on investment. Or like “poor” Prince Charles, he had to wait almost his whole life before his mother finally died and he was able to claim his birth right as King of England.

The problems begin when a person is young and they are harshly censored for any kind of personal expression. Just follow the masses; this is it, look around you, there is nothing more to life than this. Later on these folks will often continue the same pattern established by their elders: checking the creative childlike wonder of others and expecting everyone to fall in line. Yes, they are party-poopers and they can be harsh cruel disciplinarians; cold and hard strict moralists; usually hypocrites.

We might note that this Saturn assets both Venus’ signs Taurus and Libra. The values old friends, long term agreements, and things that retain their values. They have the ability to hold onto investments that go through a slump and them later retain and increase in value. They might enjoy gambling, but they do not usually take biog risks. They are usually cautious in speculations. From their rigid discipline something quite unique and special might arise.

Saturn conjunct Regulus: Just, friends among clergy, success in Church or law, scholarly, wealth, gain through speculation, companies and friends, high position, proud of home and family, good health, heart trouble at end of life. If angular and especially if rising or culminating, public honour and credit. If Mars be with the Pleiades, violent death in a tumult.

Saturn in Magha does not appear to be very good for the Heart. Jackie Robinson died at age 53 from heart disease which was complicated by diabetes.

B.K.S. Iyengar’s Astrology Chart (Tenatively rectified)

B.K.S. Iyengar: His book “the light on yoga is one of the most famous yoga manuals. “Yoga is the light, which, once lit will never dim. The better you practice the brighter the flame.” “The mind is king of the senses, but the breath is king of the mind.” “The hardness of a diamond is part of its usefulness, but the true value is in the light that shines through it.” “Yoga is about the will, working with intelligence and self-reflexive consciousness. It can free un from the inevitability of the wavering mind and outwardly directed senses.”

Saturn in Magha Pada 1, Aries Navamsha: Debilitated navamsha for Saturn. They become hard and cruel in the face of joy. On the other hand they tend to enjoy their work too some degree. Some of them might feel like they are responsible to evoke the joy and wonder of this world without being able to actually connect to that source for themselves.  

Saturn in Magha Pada 2, Taurus Navamsha: This Saturn gives a special knowledge of history and a connection to an ancient lineage. Harsh disciplinarians, they are usually good bankers and savers and are unlikely to waste much money.  They will buy or build quality products and expect it to last forever.

Saturn

in Magha Pada 3, Gemini Navamsha: They might be writing of signing documents related to emancipation or freedom for the blacks, the workers, the labourers, slavery.

Saturn in Magha Pada 4, Cancer Navamsha: This seems to confer a kind of throat yoga thet comes late in life and the torch gets passed from the elders. By their investments they might come to in charge of vast lands, a regulator of culture. Many of these natives have embraced older gods and very difficult austerities connection them with dark magic, tantra, occultism. They may be “born again later in life.

Lydia Shire – executive Chef

Phala Deepika: Saturn in 1st house “causes one to be afflicted with sorrow and misery from early childhood and is sure to suffer from poverty and want. He is untidy and indolent.”

Jataka Bharnam: Saturn in 1st house: “If Saturn is exalted or in own sign the native becomes the king of his country or his own city, but in any other sign he is unfortunate, diseased and devoid of wealth. The disease will affect that part of the body represented by the sign.”

Olivia Newton John in her younger years. She has remained thin.

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 1st house: “Foreign customers will be easily copied and imitated. If Saturn is not afflicted there will be much concern for others. Self confit dance is normally justified. Moral stability will also be marked. The disposition is calm, grave and serious. The body will be weak and emancipated. Progress in any venture will be slow but certain. There may come an aversion for responsibility. This position makes habits inactive. Loss through negligence and lack of opportunity are possible. The same results will be noticed when Saturn aspects the ascendant. Misfortune is likely in the early part of life.”

George Foreman has Jupiter conjunct the ascendant lord and aspecting the ascendant to give him a more robust body.

Chamatkar Chintamani: Saturn in the 1st house: “The native has plenty of wealth, unabated greed. Discontented, quarrelsome, unhappy, crude. Poisonous glance; mental agony, billions, jealous. The native is rich, regrets, disputes, destroyed the strongest enemies but is dissatisfied. Perturbed, angry, Saturn-like looks, jealous of others property and victims of various ailments. The native is sick, sexy, gloomy, lazy, faces various ailments in childhood. If Saturn is in it’s own sign, exalted or in Sagittarius, Pisces the native is affluent like a king, chief of the village or town; learned, a scholar, handsome, long-lived and charming. In other signs the results are similar to those of the Sun, there is trouble in the nose, illusions, heart-burning, trouble in the womb and joints, biliousness, chill, pain in the private parts, under-arm and body pains. Respiratory problems if Saturn is afflicted. If it is unfavourable, trouble due to poverty, own acts, evil spirits, devils and thieves. Saturn is very troublesome causing total ruin. This Saturn can kill the enemy just by his poisonous looks. If afflicted by the Moon, they will live only by the mercy of others; but this is modified if aspected by a benefic. If well placed by sign or aspect the native is contemplative and considerate, discrete, prudent, systematic, diligent, frugal, intimate, attentive, quiet, sincere, and serious, loves merit, thoughtful, growth and success are slow but sure. Afflicted Saturn indicates trouble and sickness in the part of the body represented by the sign it’s in. Their temperament is subtle, acquisitive, penetrative, careful, secretive, and sometimes gloomy and discontented. There is loss through sickness, misfortune and

The native leaves a good impression in the first interview. Good natured in Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Pisces. Selfish in Virgo, Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus.”

Jataka Bharnam: “Moon & Saturn conjunction allows the native to enjoy sex with many women, loves and prostitutes. They have a guilty disposition, mixed blood and are devoid of manliness. They do agriculture or labour work and often take part in local elections and may be successful. In a female, this conjunction in the 7th house will give menstrual irregularities and in a male chart they might lack interest in sexual intercourse.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be sickly, famous, inimical to his relatives, adventurous, and virtuous. If the ascendant is otherwise weakened they could be permanently disabled. But if this 6th lord is in his own or exaltation sign they will not be sick; they will love exercise, remain fixed in reality (not a dreamer), earns by hard work and is wealthy and honourable.”

B.V. Raman: 6th lord in the 1st house: “If well aspected the person may join the army as a soldier of commander consistent with the strength and disposition of the planets involved. He may become a minister of war or officer concerned with prisons. He will live in the house of his maternal grandfather. If weak or otherwise afflicted the native becomes a robber, thief or leader of a criminal gang.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 1st house: “the native will travers others’ wives, be wicked, skilful, be devoid of fortitude and will be afflicted by windy diseases.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 1st house: “The native might marry someone he has known since childhood, or they were brought up in the same house. Ones partner will be stable and mature. The native will be intelligent and capable of weighing the pros and cons. Afflictions can bring constant travelling. If Venus is also afflicted, the native will be sensual and seek clandestine relations with the opposite sex.”

Lydia Shire – Executive Chef

Commentary: A servant to the wealthy, or at least that how one is generally treated. With heard work they are capable of breaking glass ceilings. They often start out in life having to grow up too soon and may get in to crime, drugs or some other socially unacceptable behaviour that makes them fairly hard early on. But they can easily work their way up to an executive level and they can be excellent administrators; but even then they will find themselves being treated like a servant or a slave. “What? Am I black?”

Saturn in Magha 2nd house

Rules the 7th & 8th houses for Cancer ascendant.

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 2nd house: “Unless exalted or in own house it tends to make earning an uphill struggle. Much work with little gain. Harsh speech, unsocial, sorrowful and roaming about aimlessly, the person comes across many opportunities but seldom takes advantage of them. In family life he will be unhappy. He will gain by dealing with metals, storage, mines, labour, etc. He will be unpopular.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 2nd house: “The native will have many wives, will gain wealth through his wife and be of procrastinating nature.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 2nd house: “The native gets wealth through marriage. If afflicted one may earn wealth through despicable means as trading in flesh and women, not excluding his wife. He may eat the food offered at death ceremonies and wander about seeking such foods. If the 2nd house is a dual sign and afflicted, more than one marriage is likely. If maraka dasha is going on, one may die in periods of the 7th lord. The native will have a wavering mind and will always be inclined towards sensuality.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 2nd house: “The native will be devoid of physical vigour, will possess little wealth and will not regain lost wealth.”

If in the 6th, 8th, or 12th navamsha the intensity of the results will be reduced in some way.”

Prince Charles’ Astrology Chart – Now King Charles

Commentary: Can be disruptive to the first marriage, both by delay and divorce. Lots of hidden behaviour in relationships, partner has many closely guarded secrets. Second marriage is said to be more mature, stable and fulfilling than the first. Marriage may be for optics, a kind of formal procedure devoid of any real merging of energies. It’s ;likely they will have a strong prenuptial agreement. One may have hidden wealth and gain by inheritance, and belong to “old money.”

2017 -2018 Transit predictions for Aries, Taurus, Gemini & Cancer: Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Libra, Rahu in Cancer & Ketu in Capricorn

T
The original photograph of the Sleeping Dog’s

So much has changed since my last post. I should appoligize for the delay and thank those of you who reminded me to update my transit predictions.

Saturn is in Sagittarius, Rahu and Ketu in Cancer and Capricorn respectively, and Jupiter is in Libra. The others are making their way more quickly. The Moon, as I write this, is only 3 degrees from exact conjunct with Rahu in Cancer (as I hit publish, this conjunction is exact). There is certain,y some relation between this Rahu in Cancer, the sign of home and defensive perimeters, and all of this independence movement in the world. Saturn’s aspect from Scorpio would have been acting as a somewhat restrictive force, but with Saturn’s movement to Sagittarius this restriction is removed. We will have to watch for Mars to make his way thru Sagittarius, Capricorn (March 7, 2018 & May 2, 2018 respectively until November 5, 2018) as well as his next pass thru his own sign of Aries (beginning Feb 5, 2019). I expect that it will be a particularly hot summer of 2018: heatwaves, drought, as well as the political situation internationally (war, independence movements, the refugee crisis, and every kind of sudden, unexpected and potentially explosive). As you read these horoscopes for each sign, try to keep the world in mind as much as you think about these in a personal way.

In any case:

Aries

Aries is the natural horoscope where the signs and the houses match. Aries natives will find themselves blessed by Jupiter’s aspect to ascendant. This can bring positive personal grow and prosperity that occasionally manifests itself on the belt-line. Guru’s aspects to the 11th house can bring multiple sources of profit and gain as well as expending ones hopes and friends circles. Considering this aspect is coming from the 7th house, Jupiter in Libra can be very good for business allowing for multiple partnerships and contracts. This multiplying effect in the 7th house is good for business, and positive for single people, but for marriage it can be inconvenient for those devoted to monogamy. However, since Jupiter owns the 12th house, all of these 7th house matters could merely be matters of the imagination or expenditure of our life force. Jupiter int he 7th house can be very good for personal motivation. It’s very likely you will find yourself in various situations where you have to look into yourself to discover the right and honest mode of action. Saturn’s aspect to the 3rd house could also cause several delays in your efforts due to wanting to act within the law while also maintaining your own personal sense of Justice as well. Saturn in the 9th house can bring hard luck materially, but spiritually, this Saturn can diminish our sense of greed, ego, and competitiveness (what the Bhagavad Gita calls the triple gates to hell) as well as bringing humility into our lives. The combination of Jupiter and Saturn aspecting the 11th house and the 3rd house is generally beneficial in our lives and the lives of our brothers, both younger and older. The 11th lord in the 9th house (11th from the 11th) is an auspicious placement as is the 9th lord in the 7th house (11th from 9th): gainful for brother, gainful for father, and potentially gain by luck for oneself.

Ketu and Saturn are sharing an aspect to Virgo in the 6th house but the nodes are otherwise acting without influence from the other slow moving planets. These aspects on the 6th house can suggest taking responsibility for ones own health as well as gaining some opportunity to do some kind of service or social work. You could find that your enemies and obstacles are dispersed and restricted thru this period. Rahu can increase your expenses and your impulses as well as personal sense of security. Rahu in the 4th hosue can, however, bring a false sense of security since the imposure might be inside your own home already. This Rahu can bring a change of residence and foreign travel and Saturn in the 9th can bring an arduous pilgrimage.

Taurus

Taurus natives are very likely to receive help and/or good advice to overcome their difficulties. This could very well come unearned or unexpected from a friend or thru mysticism or occult means. Jupiter can bring gains from difficult situations and enmity, but the gain does come with some pain. Jupiter’s 12th house aspect can signify hospital intervention, ashram, charity or even educational expenditures. Again, Jupiter comes with mixed blessings for Taurus natives. The mutual aspect of Saturn and Jupiter on the 10th house can be good for one’s career and public reputation, but you are very likely to have top work incredibly hard; possibly taking on extra work or extra duties or extra hours that you may, or may not, get pain for. Many of Jupiter’s lessons with be taught alongside Saturn thru this period; this is one reason for the mixed results. Saturn is actually yoga karaka planet for Taurus natives. Yoga karaka essentially means that Saturn is very likely to be the most influential planet for bringing good and lasting things into a persons life. He gets this title of Yoga karaka by virtue of his ownership of the 9th and 10th houses; commonly considered the 2 best houses of the chart; essentially ones dharma and ones Karma follow a similar path. As Saturn transits thru Sagittarius, Taurus natives could take a turn for the secretive, hidden, mysterious; a holder of shocking secrets that cannot be disclosed. It could be a good time to acquire assets that will add to your families prosperity, the nature of this prosperity will be determined by ones own chart. If you are in business, you could find yourself seeking to broaden you distributive network; perhaps you have some local product or service that you’d like offer to a broader regional, national or especially foreign clientele. Taurus natives are likely to seek fulfillment thru friend networks, negotiations, contracts and partnerships. Regardless of your success in these endeavours, fulfillment is rarely achieved by following Rahu. This can be a very materialistic placement for Rahu, or, at least your sense of motivation may be suspect. Ketu is in an excellent position to bring you into contact with some kind of new age spirituality and/or spiritual practice. For Taurus natives, Ketu in Capricorn can bring a unique twist to ones life and personality. It could be one of those periods in ones life that we look back on as being a little strange. Ketu in the 9th house can bring many blessings from our past lives.

Gemini

For Gemini natives, this could be a very good period for higher knowledge and education. Jupiter is blessing the 5th, 9th, 11th & 1st houses which can also be good for studentship, spiritual practices, gain of educated friends, as well as providing a broad base for profit. This can be a very good time for luck coincidences. Saturn in the 7th house can be very good for committed relationships, and taking responsibility for our agreements. This Saturn will be better for relationships that are already in progress since it’s likely to delay or restrict the forming of new contracts or partnerships. Jupiter can bring dating and romance in the 5th house, but Saturn effect will be felt in the negotiation/agreement making process. Jupiter will be giving some blessing to any risk taking activity, so I don’t suppose single people will shy from dating, nor, for that matter, will investors shy from risk taking. Jupiter in the 5th makes these kinds of things all about spreading it our; broadening; and expending the risk taking activity in order to diminish the risk. Jupiter does not jump into things impulsively and foolishly. Rahu is in the 2nd house which can be good for savings, assets and collections; but it can just as likely bring our ruin as we seek an image based on these things. Such a false image can be expensive and bring debt by Rahu’s 6th house aspect. Ketu in the 8th can lead to taking your secrets, dreams and those subtle signals from your ancestors for granted. There may be some disturbance in the home as ancestral spirits are disturbed; both repression and dispersal are possible. In any case, you are not likely to find much enjoyment in the home through this period. Since this home energy also connects with the mother, she might also face some difficulties in this period.

Cancer

Cancer natives will be dealing with Rahu in the 1st house. This period will be all about you; other people in your life will either have to toe the line or go away. This is not a good frame of mind for healthy, prosperous relationships. Ketu could throw all these past agreements to the wind which would likely have negative effect on friend circles and distributive networks. Younger brothers are likely to be adversely affected, of you could find yourself associating with (or making business with) criminal elements. However, this Rahu can also bring a profound spiritual experience, world travel, pilgrimage or some unique (and likely intense) spiritual; practice. This Rahu likes Rudra and Durga and these destructively powerful energies of the universe. Knowledge and productivity are likely to progress along these lines. Ketu, as I said, will enhance your feeling of isolation. If we look at all of this as well as Jupiter’s influence to he 12th house this becomes an especially potent time for spirituality, higher knowledge, travel, connecting with ancestor spirits and other experiences that will help to carry you into your future. Be wary of occasional lapses of judgment; be gentle on yourself. Jupiter can also enlarge your home from the 4th house; this could be a renovation or addition to the home structure itself, or it could be an increase in the number of people in the home (children, some family member coming to stay, or perhaps a new tenant or roommate). This sort of thing can sometimes be a little uncomfortable and put people a little on edge making them feel like some normal routine things now have to be completed under the cover of secrecy. Saturn in the 6th house can be beneficial for you as he gives a restrictive influence to your enemies and obstacles. However, the planet of service in the house of service will give you some service to perform in your life; such social service should be considered a great blessing in life.

2017 Transits for Cancer (very detailed)

7 This is essentially a tutorial for reading a chart in the style of Parashara using the transits for Cancer Lagna in 2017 as an example. In writing this, I have tried to consider the many students of astrology who contact me, but many people with even a mundane interest in astrology may be interested in the content.

Four more major transits this year:

Saturn will go back to Scorpio around June 20.

Rahu and Ketu will go into Cancer and Capricorn respectively on August 18.

Jupiter will more into Libra on the inauspicious day of September 11.

Saturn will go back to Sagittarius around October 26

 2017 transits for Cancer Lagna (rising or moon sign)

Dharma 1st house: who we are; “ecce homo.” 5th house: what we create; “it’s alive.”9th house: what we believe: “by divine right.”

The first house is the self, the personality, the body, the head; it is who we are. Rahu will be moving into Cancer in August otherwise no other planet has direct influence over the first house, though of course each planet is measured from its position from 1st house. Rahu in first house can bring health problems, and if moon is in cancer it may bring some anxiety to the mind. Rahu influences individuality, and a sense of self-importance. Much of the transit effect depends on the position of Rahu in ones personal chart as well as the chart as a whole, but Rahu in first house makes one want to be recognized for who they are….. “SEE ME,” this Rahu says. I’ll discuss Ketu’s position when we talk about the Kama (desire) houses. From this first house Rahu looks at the 5th and 9th houses bringing some intensity to your productivity and well as some development of a personal belief system that does not necessary fit with the established religions. This Rahu can also make mistakes in his attempts to maximize production and gain some recognition for creativity/productivity.

Fifth house: The children of the 5th house are much more than just those who spill forth from the loins of our wives and lovers. Those children which are born of our mind also fit into the 5th house; all the creations we try to maintain are our children. This blog is my child: I feed it, care for it, and give it love; someday it might grow up to have a kind of life of it’s own, but unless I raise it well, it will never survive without me. Investments also come from the fifth house: responsible long-term investments by Saturn, more aggressive short term by Mars, and wild speculation by Rahu. Saturn of course will be affecting the fifth house throughout his transit Scorpio. When Rahu goes into Cancer, he will also be looking at the 5th house (I mentioned some of these effects in my talk about 1st house). Of course the combination of these two malefic influences on an enemy sign (August to October) may bring some difficulties in 5th house matters.

Saturn will have a couple of months alone in this 5th house of Scorpio in the summer which can be beneficial in a very unexciting way, but when Rahu and Ketu make their move to Cancer and Capricorn in August, Rahu will be giving Saturn in the 5th a hard aspect is likely to bring some mistakes in August – October. This is the kind of situation where we create something without intention; or perhaps our creation has unintended consequences. When Saturn moves to the 6th house in October he will move your sense of responsibility into taking care of your health and resolving other obstacles and disputes. With Saturn’s limiting influence removed from the 5th house, Rahu will be free to increase our sense of risk and adventure. Rahu’s aspect on the 5th house also makes this a good time to try some foreign spiritual practice or undertake some intensive studies. Hard responsibility!

Spring can be a potent time for spiritual practice for Cancer natives, but with Jupiter looking at the ninth house from the 3rd and Venus going into exaltation in the 9th from January 27 – May 31. These are the two Gurus of the Gods and Demons respectively; both Brahmins, both with knowledge of the world from their respective perspectives. But when Venus moves on, Jupiter will remain blessing our higher knowledge and sense of faith alone until mid-August when Rahu moves to affect the Dharma trine for Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces natives. Rahu bring intensity into the lives of watery people. His effect will be mostly felt on the body and the personality of Cancer natives who could contract some contagious disease, flu, or seasonal ailment. Accidents and injuries can also be brought about by Rahu’s intensity. People with Rahu in the 1st house often feel strong and independent and pride themselves on their strong individuality.

Ninth house: Our luck, our faith, and our beliefs become our religion. Everyone has one whether it’s personal or institutional or some combination of the two. All the things we pick up over the course of our lives that “make sense” about how humans should live fit into the indications of the 9th house. (The 5th house is also said to be a luck house, but the 5th has more to do with how we put our beliefs in action. If the 9th house the spirituality that we believe in, the 5th house is the spiritual practice that we actually follow. This is also the house of higher knowledge, the guruji, and the father.

For Cancer natives, the 9th house will have Jupiter aspecting his own Pisces 9th house until September 11, 2017. Rahu will also make an aspect here after the nodes move in mid-August and this will continue until the end of the year. Jupiter’s aspect here will promote good luck and a broad-minded personal philosophy. It’s a good aspects of student of the more advanced institutions as well as for spiritual practitioners. Such and aspect can also bless the father or the guru with advisory capabilities. This spring when Venus makes her transit thru this house will be a very potent time of spiritual practice and achieving a higher understanding of the world regardless of your spiritual out look.

Kama: 3rd house; sexual effort 7th house: the other; 11th house: our hopes

Third house: the effort we make to fulfill our desire, cousins, contemporaries, peers; what we do with our hands; social contacts & network.

Jupiter in the 3rd can bring noble efforts; he can enrich your siblings and network, partnerships and profits. He is also looking at his own 9th house, which should be good for spiritual practice, high knowledge, fathers and gurus. In the spring when Venus is exalted in his transit thru Pisces should be an especially potent time for the spiritual lives of Cancer natives. Saturn is looking at Jupiter from the 6th house, which can make you responsible for your health, but also give responsibility to your 3rd house efforts. Jupiter in the 3rd can also bring a lot of short travel and your neighborhood could undergo some kind of improvement.

Jupiter will continue to give his blessing to these matters from the third house until September. Jupiter generally blesses us by broadening our view (our perspective) of things. He’s also famous for his indulgence and will bring an honest effort to achieving whatever goals are assigned. Jupiter is also a multiplier so you may try several avenues to achieve the same goal. Saturn will be looking at Jupiter until June 20 when he goes back into Scorpio where he stays until October 26. Saturn drishti (aspect) on Jupiter in the third can give you a more determined and perhaps even habitual effort.

Seventh house: the kinds of partnerships we make and the way we maintain agreements; wife; business partners, contractual agreements, relationship with the other; our mirror. Essentially, this is how we view and treat others, or rather, “the other” since the typical dualist perspective of life merely separates oneself from all others allowing for the great narratives of man vs nature; man vs man; man vs himself. In any case, they’re all self-defeating battles in the end.

Jupiter’s aspect on the 7th house suggests that you may see at least some of what is noble and pure in others. Jupiter’s aspect can bring many different agreements with different people. Saturn, the ruler of the 7th house for Cancer natives, however, is in the 6th house (12th from 7th) which could bring disputes, broken contracts, or perhaps some service, duty or suffering related to the end of a contract. Since Saturn makes us take responsibility for the annoyances of 6th house, their effects are actually greatly mitigated, unlike, say, Ketu in 6th who often leaves us completely unconcerned with 6th house matters; which can often bring bigger difficulties later. (Saturn will be in this 6th house until June 20 & will return to the 6th again on October 26th.) Saturn in Sagittarius is in the 11th house from Aquarius which is in the 8th house suggesting some possibility of unexpected gain (some would say that this Saturn also forms an auspicious vipreet raj yoga.

When Saturn returns to Scorpio for the middle part of the year he can influence romantic agreements, however, Saturn’s risks are generally carefully measured and his aspect on the 7th house can bring responsibility for children as well as for agreements.

In regards to relationships, this Jupiter is giving a beneficial look at the 7th house of partnerships as well as the 9th house of luck, and from your 3rd, he looks at your partners 3rd (3rd from 7th) suggesting a good time for a combined effort. Relationships are generally ruled by Venus or Mars, though for a woman, Jupiter can represent the husband.

For Cancer lagna, Saturn rules the 7th house of relationships and therefore becomes the karaka (signifier) of relationships that are bound by some mutual agreement. Saturn’s transit in Sagittarius, I’m sorry to say, is not likely to be good for agreements or the partners of Cancer natives since he goes into to 6th house where agreements are broken or become like obstacles. Saturn can make us take responsibility for broken contract/agreements, or he can permanently delay breaking contracts. Saturn and Ketu are also hemming your 7th house; which can put a lot of pressure on your spouse or your agreements. This Ketu can also put a cramp on your partner’s savings, and Rahu in 2nd suggest that you may be happy to be in charge of savings and liquid investments.

Eleventh house: the kind of gain we make, our hopes and the people we associate with are represented in the 11th house. This will be a very dynamic house in 2017 as the aspecting planets will be changing frequently. Jupiter is currently alone in aspecting the 11th house until June when Saturn’s move to the 5th house will then give him an aspect on the 11th house as well. Saturn and Jupiter will give a combined aspect to this house throughout the summer and then in August, Ketu will add his aspecting influence. In September, Jupiter will move tot he 4th house leaving Saturn and Ketu to aspect this house until Saturn moves his look away from here in October.

The period from early September until late October could prove to be a very difficult time for gain and profit. Starting in August, Ketu will be dispersing agreements trade and negotiation. Once Jupiter takes his beneficial influence away from the 11th house, there is likely to be a loss of profits and a loss of hope. Ketu’s influence often comes in the form of a single sharp (or explosive) event that affects all of society as well as the individuals who are a part of it. Depending on ones natal chart even the most dire looking transits can be especially positive. Saturn and Ketu could allow one to profit from technical matters, foreigners, service, and the like.

Prior to September, Jupiter will be looking at the 11th house; which can be good for gain, but also expensive and pleasant of our sense of hope.

Artha: 2nd house: the face we show to the world; 6th house: obstacles; 10th house: our reputation

Second house: Rahu will be in Leo of the second house until mid-August. This can be a difficult placement for Rahu since he will like to appear as someone with great savings and many valuables regardless of the reality. The difficulty in this placement can be summed up with the words a local drug addict recently spoke to me: “it doesn’t matter what the truth is, nobody cares about truth, what people care about is appearance; appearance is everything.” This is the sort of materialistic philosophy followed by Rahu in the second. Saturn will also be looking at this 2nd house from mid-June to mid-September. The period from mid-June to mid-August will have both of these planets affecting the second house which is likely to cause some tension by introducing a conservative bent to Rahu’s excess. This mid-summer period could bring health problems to some member of the ancestral family (or childhood family), but it could also affect the face of teeth of the native. This will be a very good period for harsh speech, and food and eating habits are likely to be less than healthy (Rahu in the 2nd house of a natal chart is often indicative of meat eating or having an ancestry that earned from the death of animals). Once Rahu moves on to Cancer in August, Saturn’s dristi will be alone in influencing the second house. This will be a much better time for gathering savings and consolidating liquid assets, but with Saturn there will have to be some sacrifices made to complete the collection. Of course much depends on the natal position of the Sun and the other planets.

Sixth house: Saturn is going in and out the 6th house this year. In June he will move back to the 5th house until the end of October and then back into the 6th to complete his 2.5 year transit of the sign. Saturn in the 6th house makes us take responsibility for our health. From this position he can drag out acute health problems or disputes; he can force us into a service role; and generally make us take our obligations seriously. This is the position of someone who follows their duty.

Saturn rules the 7th and 8th houses. 7th owner going into the 6th house is rarely good as it will encourage disputes with spouse. This Saturn often does not go in for divorce of break up, but rather takes responsibility for the dispute and tries to fix things regardless of how long it takes. Saturn is not averse to the problem sets of the 6th.

Rahu’s aspect on this house until mid-August (both Saturn and Rahu will give effects here until mid to late June. The 6th house represents those things which challenge us and Rahu certainly loves a challenge. Rahu is also not averse to breaking a few rules in order to win. Success thru this period will depend on the natal placements of the planets as well as the dasha operating throughout this period.

Of course, for Cancer natives, Jupiter has some major say in 6th house matters. Jupiter will be in the 3rd house until early September and then he will move into the 4th house. The 3rd house is 10th from 6th suggesting that some reputational matters will be tied in with the 6th house matters. The 3rd house is the house of effort so it’s likely that noble (Jupiterian) efforts will be made for 6th house matters (to resolve disputes and health matters. It’s also possible that Jupiter will bring the 6th house disputes into the 3rd house to cause disputes with (or health problems to) younger siblings or social networks (neighbors can also be represented by 3rd house). When Jupiter moves into the 4th house, he can bring these duties, obstacles and challenges to the parents or home of the Cancer native. It must be pointed out that Jupiter is also the 9th house owner for Cancer lagna which suggest that there will always be a c certain amount of luck or higher knowledge tied in with Jupiterian significations.

Tenth house: For cancer natives the 10th house is ruled by Mars, a relatively fast moving planet that will continually transform ones reputation as the native seeks continual innovation. Rahu will be looking at the 10th house until mid-August and then it will be left without strong influence from any of the slow moving planets until Jupiter moves to Libra in September which will give the Guru a direct aspect of the 10th house.

Rahu deals with our urges that we cannot control, in regards to the 10th house, he gives us the urge for public recognition. This can often lead to “acting out” or some other behavior that will get noticed. The combined influence of Mars and Rahu on this house can also give a reputation of dealing with computers and machines.

When Jupiter lends his look to this house we can expect a broadening of reputation, perhaps an advisory or training position. Since Jupiter is looking from the 4th house of home and contentment, these expending emotions likely to be reflected in ones social position. Since this house is ruled by Mars, this can be an especially good time for executives maintaining several career portfolios.

Moksha: 4th house: contentment; 8th house: the unknown; 12th house: expenditure

Fourth house: Ketu is sending his dispersing influence tot he 4th house until the two brothers make their move in August. The 4th house will be vacant for about a month and then Jupiter will bring a combination of luck and duty into the home.

Depending on the position of Venus in the natal chart as well as the current dasha period running, Ketu can disperse the home, quell the home fires, and bring difficulties to the mother. Ketu can also influence a little bit of emotional numbness, and perhaps limit our sense of security.

Of course, when Jupiter moves into this 4th house in September, he will bring his natural expansiveness as well as his functional luck and duty. Higher knowledge and understanding will go into the home and influence the emotional being, but there will also be a stronger sense of duty for the home environment. A touch of caution needs to be exercises here since any influence of the 6th lord tot he 4th house can bring vehicle accidents as well as property disputes. Of course, once again, this is largely influenced by ones personal chart and dasha period.

Eighth house: The eighth house is mystery, occult, secret knowledge, death, and all that resides in the hidden depths of water. Cancer natives have Aquarius in the 8th house marking them a secret mystics.

Ketu is in Aquarius until mid-August. This can bring a deep and mysterious intuitive understanding. Ketu in 8th house can also be quite explosive in the 8th house since both have a proclivity for the unexpected. Ketu’s dispersal energy can be quite explosive when combines with Mars or Saturn. (Saturn will be aspecting Ketu in 8th thru May and mostly June). This could be quite a sensitive month and a half for Cancer natives as well as Cancer localities. Since Saturn is looking at his own Aquarius sign in this house, there is likely to be some protection (Saturn’s aspect on 8th also increases longevity), but it may be safe advice to expect the unexpected. Although it’s out of the purview of this analysis, it can be noted that Mars is also aspecting Saturn in the 6th house which will influence some toxicity.

Ketu will have a couple of months alone in the 8th house from the end of June until the end of August. This can bring a loss of privacy, loss of sleep even, as well as other difficulties in the home. Ketu’s role is to leave what belongs in the past, in the past. He cuts us from the energies that don’t serve us anymore. He is like that Shiva who is cutting the head off time; the fleeting past that is continually rushing into the majestically expansive mouths of Lord Krishna.

Then, in August, Rahu and Ketu move houses and the 8th house becomes more accessible to the reasoned to the mind. The ruler of 8th, Saturn, will be in the 5th house which is an excellent placement for research, and since he is additionally in Scorpio (the 8th sign), some occult experiences are also possible. Some of you may experience this as Ketu revealing some latent talents in the mystery cults and then suddenly finding a strong desire to practice and experience the mysteries of life.

For most of September and October, Jupiter will aspect this house, and Saturn will add his aspect in October when he moves back into Sagittarius. This can bring some more pleasant, but equally unexpected, events. This could be as simple as some good advice from an unlikely source.

Twelfth house: This is the ultimate moksha house: loss, liberation, expenses, bed pleasures, and the sub-conscious mind. Ketu and Saturn will also be affecting this house by aspect in the early part of summer. Difficult sleep, being out of touch with the sub-conscious, and certainly a lack of pleasurable bed pleasures. This Saturn-Ketu aspects here can bring awful dreams and a dreadful imagination. All this sub-conscious information will ease off in August, and if there is any kind of major disruption causes by this combination, Jupiter’s aspect on the 12th house (beginning in September) is likely to be beneficial.

Saturn and Ketu can sometimes give a very difficult restriction to expenses; or it can make for very wasteful expenses depending on their placement in your chart and the current dasha operating.
