Jyotish is supposed to show us the path of our life; it is not meant for twisting the path as per our desires.

Saturn Direct in Capricorn (Uttarashada) on 29 September 2020

Saturn entered Capricorn on 24 January and of course was in a direct motion then too. This time after the retrogression, Saturn is going direct again in Capricorn on 29 September 2020. How is this transit different from the transit in January?
Well, if we remember the planetary placements on 25 January, we will see this was a highly volatile and afflicted placement of all planets, Kaal Sarpa formation, even the nakshatras exuded intense energies and karmic retributions. Therefore, the whole situation was quite chaotic and the outcome was not the true reflection of Saturn in Capricorn.

See the transit chat of 29 September, this is a much cleaner energy, a forward looking and positive energy that not only Saturn but almost all other planets are exuding. Jupiter and Saturn are now comfortably spaced out, not really breathing down each other’s necks.

So all in all this is the time when the true energy of Saturn in the natural house of Karma and in the own sign of Capricorn will be manifested. The main theme of this transit is disciplined, slow but steady progress that will have long lasting impact in your life. Take this transit as an opportunity to build a solid, straightforward and positive karmic path for yourself.

While being in Capricorn, Saturn transits through the following three nakshatras:
Uttarashada (Ruler Sun) – 24 January 2020 to 22 January 2021
Shravana (Ruler Moon) – 22 January 2021 to 17 February 2022
Dhanishtha (Ruler Mars) – 17 February 2021 to 29 April 2022
After 29 April it moves to Aquarius.

When it passes through these nakshatras, whichever house the Nakshatra lord occupies in your own chart, also gets activated. If you have any planet placed in these nakshatras, those planets will also get activated.

Let me give an example, let’s say you have Aries ascendant, and you have Mars placed in Uttarashada in Capricorn. In your chart Sun is the lord of the 5th house and placed in the 9th house. Therefore during this transit, your 10th house, 11th house, 12th house, 4th house, 7th house, 5th house, 9th house, 1st house and 8th house gets activated. As you can see more than 75% of your chart and their significations are getting activated! Isn’t that amazing? And if we consider the placement of your natal Saturn, you may see your whole chart is getting impacted by Saturn.

The point is with Saturn’s or Jupiter’s transit we cannot really restrict it to a few particular houses and conclude results as per that. During long transits like Saturn’s we have to drill down to the nakshatra level to understand the results more accurately.

Now let us see the results of Saturn doing direct in Capricorn and placement in Uttarashada as per the Ascendants. I shall also mention the house owned by the Sun, the ruling planet of Uttarashada and what additional attributes will get activated for you. Whether these will be positive or negative for you that will depend on where Sun is placed in your own chart.

Aries: Saturn by default is your Karma karaka. For you, Saturn activates your 10th and 11th house and puts pressure on your 12th house, 4th house and 7th house by aspect. Profession has been the focus for you ever since Saturn had entered Capricorn in January. Last few months during the retrogression, you experienced some obstacles, weighed the options, re-evaluated your priorities and now with direct Saturn in September; it is time to forge ahead in full steam. This is particularly applicable for the self-employed and business people. People working in large corporates will also see positive time.This transit of Saturn will help you to grow business with the foreign clients. Relocation may happen too.

However, if you are married, you still need to take care of your married life, spouse’s health and domestic peace, but the karmic testing period is over now.

My overall observation of this transit of Saturn in the nakshatra of Uttarashada is –

  1. For majority of the ascendants professional growth and money are the key factors of this transit.
  2. The peace and bliss in the married life are taking a backseat
  3. Relocation and foreign journey are indicated for many
  4. Spiritual inclination and even awakening are on the cards for many ascendants; of course this will manifest depending on the personal preparation level to receive this boon.
