Transit/ Gochar of Shani / Saturn in Tula / Libra 2012-2013-2014 
Effects of Sadesati/ Sade Sati on Rashi Virgo/ Kanya, Libra/ Tula and  Scorpio/ Vrishchik

Shani has finally entered into Tula / Libra Rashi, not to return to Kanya / Virgo for about another 27 years. Shani has entered into Tula on 15-Nov-2011. It then became Vakri / Retrograde and returned to Kanya for a short period. This short period has ended on 5-Aug-2012.

Transits of Shani and Guru / Jupiter are one of the most important transits. Mr. K. N. Rao, Head of Astrology Department, Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan, New Delhi, states that “Nothing of importance can occur without the blessings of Shani and Guru”.  This is the reason that we look at these transits more carefully than any other transit. Vedic Astrologers, primarily watch out the placements of these two planets, both in gochar / transit and lagna /natal chart along with Rahu for predicting.

Shani is a planet of rules, hard work, the working classes, laborers. It is the planet who fructifies our karmas of present and past incarnations. It is there for us to help us de-tangle ourselves from the attachments of Maya “The Illusion” and bring us closer to reality and ourselves. He is the ultimate Yogi and do not favor anyone. He is there to purify our souls of the sins and mis-doings of our past. It makes us pay for our debts and commence free for our future. Planet Saturn is the ultimate and the real Guru we can ever find. He imparts the ultimate divine knowledge and breaks us free from the shackles of attachments. When we get entangled in the illusions that Maya creates, we tend to have “Mooha” or the attachments with a thing, an asset or a person. Bhagvat Gita says that:

When Mooha comes, we get bitter,
When Bitter comes, we get angry,
When Anger comes, thinking power(Buddhi) destroys,
When Thinking Power Destroys, the person gets destroyed .

Planet Saturn thus makes us come out of Mooha of things, assets and persons. This thus makes a person who lives the life of a Yogi, doing “Nishkaama Karma”, i.e. doing his duties without getting curious about the results. Victory or Defeat then becomes same for him. He does not expect anything and thus achieves a state of Eternal Bliss (Paramanand).

Saturn thus takes its course to make us pure and start to have trust in the laws of the Mother Nature. It brings us close to reality and the true existence. The action and modus operandi of Saturn is very strict and hard one though. He is a hard task master. He cannot accommodate any lapses and thus make his teaching learned the hard way.  This is more so if the person is very aggressive and unruly by nature. This applies more to signs ruled by Mangal / Mars and Surya / Sun. It is also harsh on Karka / Cancer the sign ruled by Chandra / Moon, as this sign is ruled basically by emotions and emotions do not find any place in eternal learning process. Imparting of this education is painful and hard for almost all the signs though.

Transit of Saturn in Libra, will thus have changes for all the rashis, especially regarding the Sadesati.

Sadesati and Dhayya on Rashis for Transit of Shani in Tula


Kanya /  Virgo, Tula / Libra and Vrishchik / Scorpio


Karka / Cancer, Meena / Pisces

Note: All these are Vedic Moon Signs

Sadesati has finally ended for Simha / Leo rashi natives. Shani is now transiting their third house. This is one of the most beneficial transits for a native to have. Transit of Saturn in 3rd, 6th and 11th houses are considered the best for Saturn. In these houses during transit, this hard task master gives out his blessings and free will. It allows us to do our Karmas free from the hurdles that it puts in during its transit other houses. This is the period we tend to accumulate bad karma if we indulge too much in the free will that we get.

Shani gets Uccha / Exalted in Tula during its transit. This is a rashi; Shani will love to be posited. The balance of this sign is what Shani will prefer. It also balances the hard ways of Shani. The effects it gives also are more balanced and less disturbing as in other signs.

This is a special note for the readers of this article that giving out general predictions for rashis is not one of the best practices in Vedic Astrology. Ancient and Authentic Scriptures of Vedic Astrology have advocated for giving out predictions only after fully analyzing the particular chart with the dictums of Vedic astrology and experience of the practitioner. Transit of Saturn also has to be finally and meaning fully predicted only after analyzing the particular chart. The effects that we are writing here are only a reference and general effects. Saturn though is a permanent effect giver and is one of the most powerful planets. Its results thus have to felt, may be more or less. No other planet can overshadow the effects completely, as in case of some other planets.
