Transits – Saturn, Sade Sati, Eclipses, Retrogrades
Transit modify the Dasha results. Last year we concentrated on the Dasha but in order to truly understand the influence of time we must know the impact of the transits—how they modify and change. The main transits we will concentrate on will be Saturn, Rahu Ketu, Jupiter, eclipses, retrogrades and conjunctions.
Saturn transit has been considered the most difficult one as he is the bringer of our past karma and makes us account for it. We will concentrate on its transit through houses, transits over natal planets and ascendant and most importantly Sade Sati, the 7½-year transit over the 12, 1 and 2 house of the Moon. But we will also explain how to cope with Saturn’s transits—to know the time and deal with its impact, so that you both repay the old karmic debts while not feel over-burdened by it.
• Rahu Ketu and the eclipses have the power to transform. There will be a separate analysis of Rahu Ketu and then how eclipses impact them.
• Transit of lagna lord is key to your ability to cope.
• Jupiter’s transit brings pleasure to our life and balances the Saturn’s challenges.
• Impact of retrogrades, long transit of Venus and Mars in one sign.
