Saturn transit in Sagittarius 2017-18: Gemini rising or moon in gemini

IMG_2490For Gemini ascendant, Saturn will be in the the 7th house bringing our sense of responsibility into partnerships. For Saturn’s influence in the 9th sign, Sagittarius, please see my article regarding Aries ascendant (the first sign of the natural horoscope).

In any case, 7th house Saturn will bring his influence to 7th, 9th, 1st and 4th houses. As ruler of 8th and 9th houses he will bring these significations to the 7th house as well as those from whatever house he is in in your natal chart.

As 9th house owner, Saturn is a positive planet for most Geminis, and will his look on his own 9th house this could be a a period of luck and faith and some kind of higher knowledge regarding agreements and partnerships. We might make a partnership with our guru, our father, or some father like figure in our lives. We will in any case feel some responsibility for our agreements or contracts.

Considering the 8th lord in going into the 7th house, it could also be a time when secrets are revealed or perhaps secret relationships get their start. As the planet of responsibility, 7th house Saturn could signify marriage. It could also signify a partnership with someone older.

There are always subtle differences between the moon chart and the ascendant chart and this Saturn allows me to highlight this difference. Saturn’s aspect on ones natal moon can bring feelings of responsibility, patience, sadness or the feeling of being older; while Saturn’s aspect on one’s ascendant is more likely to bring some physical suffering, labourous responsibility, and a physical appearance of being older.

Saturn’s aspect on the 4th house will bring structure into the home, rules and perhaps some breakage due to age and wear and tear.

In regards to those near and dear ones, 7th house Saturn can bring problems to parents (mother or father), spouse, mother’s mother or ones self. Sun and or Moon charts would shed more light on the condition of your father and mother respectively.

In regards to your own physical health, Saturn can effect you health in general by his look on 1st house. Saturn is vata and vata is most prone to illness. He can also affect your chest and heart (4th house), groin (7th house), or thighs (tight hamstrings; 9th house). Dekkana; ascendant degree also has some say in this matter.

For those of you who are reading this along side your own vedic chart, you might also want to consider the ashtakvarga chart to see which value Saturn has in the 9th sign. This will give you some indication of Saturn’s ability to give results while transiting Sagittarius. The higher the number of ashtakvarga points Saturn has in the 9th sign will suggest more power to give results from Sagittarius. Also, Saturn will give stronger results in his transit when you are going thru some major or minor Saturn dasha. In any case,  I’ll get into this another time. I just wanted to put it on the table for now.

What else can I say about this Saturn? Being 6th from 2nd, you could be held responsible for ancestral (or family) debts, or it could spell the end of a longstanding agreement that your family has been responsible for. You might not like to spend you savings at this time and it could be favourable for gain since Saturn is in the 9th from the 11th; this situation could also lead an older sibling to seek out higher knowledge. Though there may be impediments to their spiritual progress, Saturn is just the planet to give them the patience to succeed.

Saturn in Sagittarius

Saturn brings a return to orthodox and traditional values and well as penance and austerities in Sagittarius. Not exactly bad luck, but hard luck, nothing will move quickly and you might even find yourself quite patient.

For Aries ascendants this could bring some travel for your career or it could be a time of retirement (12th from  10th). Saturn’s third look at his own house (Aquarius/11th) could bring your the discipline your need to achieve your hopes; gain; profit, connections with older people, mentors, even Guru’s as Saturn in the 9th can have you feel inadequate in dharma; such feelings can be a strong motivating force. Saturn’s 7th look at 3rd house Gemini will reinforce the discipline. The quality of the effort will largely be determined by the 3rd house in the natal chart.

Saturn is also the cause of our suffering and sorrow so from the 9th house he can afflict our father or grandchildren (9th), our siblings (3rd & 11th), our friends (3rd & 11th), and thankfully, our enemies (6th); as well as our thighs (9th), our legs (11th), or our arms or lungs (3rd). Especially 9th from natal moon, this Saturn can make one feel the responsibility of fatherhood, public service (11th), of being a big brother (11th), or merely for your network (3rd).

This Saturn can bring discipline and responsibility to you child’s creative mind. There could be disputes in the home and house-hold duties could feel like a responsibility. Enemies of the home may be held responsible at this time.

In regards to love, this Saturn is likely to have some delaying, restrictive effects from 9th as he will be having a similar influence on the efforts and luck of our partners while also making them responsible for their expenditure, loss and bed pleasures. Feeling responsible about something does not necessarily limit a thing but of course it can. This sort of thing depends on the individual chart. Perhaps it’s not a feeling of responsibility towards these things but a fear, a duty, patience, delay or a worry that could bring any number of responses.

In any case, I don’t expect Saturn in the 9th to be particularly good for new love as he’s in a difficult placement from 5th (risk and romance), 7th (partnership, agreements, marriage) , and 12th (bed pleasures) houses. On the other hand, if you are already in a relationship, it could be a good time for sharing responsibilities.

As Saturn transits Sagittarius he will pass through Mula (ruled by Ketu) and Purvashada (ruled by Venus) and into Uttarashada (ruled by Sun). The condition of each of these rulers in the natal chart will have a strong influence on Saturn’s disposition as he makes this transit. Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius will also have some influence. Generally Saturn is an enemy of the Sun so the last part of his transit could be most difficult as he has decent relations with Venus and Ketu (Mula has an earth flavour that Saturn can appreciate).

In any case, that’s a topic for another day. If you have questions about your personal chart, or would like a consultation regarding career, health, relationship or personal topic please contact me at holliday.michael@gmail.com
