Transit of Saturn through Virgo
Invariably all astrological discussions ultimately leads to Saturn, which is the planet of Destiny, Melancholy and Retribution. He implements the Universal Law of Karma.
Saturn teaches us frugality, simplicity and humility. He teaches us the
value of time. He is a great taskmaster and He brings in a sense of
discipline in our lives. He is not an evil Karma account keeper, as most

Astro-Therapy for Saturnine Transit
Saturn is the second biggest planet in the solar system. (700 earths can be
fit into Saturn) & his transit is indeed very important to the astrological
fraternity. As he is the planet of Ayus or Longevity, his transits can make
or break you, health-wise. He also rules Death & diseases. In Medical
Astrology, he rules the Vayu Tattwa, the Air Principle in the body
physiologic ( as the human body is made up of the Five Great Elements ).
Arthritis, paralysis & epilepsy, loss of appetite & the diseases caused by
deficiency of the Air Element are caused by him. He represents Sorrow, the
Sorrow of the Cosmic Man, the sorrow inherent in the act of Manifestation.
He represents the masses and is the planet of Democracy and Communism. He is the Celestial Judge of all actions. He is the planet of Boundless Time,
Eternity. He is also the Death planet (Mrityur Vyadhischa Dukham Shanirapi
He can elevate you to dizzy heights and at the same time hurl you into the abyss of dissolution. He creates fear of enemies. He causes quarrels related to money and destruction of agriculture. His satellite Gulika (mythologically represented as his son ) is another highly malefic planet. (Akhila Mrityu Samhara Karako Mandi).
In Horary Astrology Readings, if both Saturn and Gulika are together, it spells big trouble for the querent. If they are together in the 4th, it can indicate a disease of the location, like cancer! ( “Cancer is a disease of the location” – Dr
Origin of Gulika
There is an interesting story about the origin of his son, Gulika. Ravana, a person of immense occult power, commanded Saturn to come and stay in the 11th House of his son, Indrajith, the 11th House being the best house for
Saturn to be in.
Saturn, with his innate laziness, came and stayed at the 11th house but put his foot in the 12th ( the worst house for Saturn to be in ). An enraged Ravana cut off his leg and the entire mass of blood and bones went and stayed at the Ascendant (Lagna) as Gulika!

Saturday was consecrated to Saturn. (From the Latin Dies Saturni & the Sanskrit Shani Var) Blue Sapphire is his primary gemstone & Blue Spinel his secondary gemstone.

Note – The above results are general and they should be carefully applied to individual horoscopes in the light of directional influences (Dasa). For example, if there are no powerful yogas in the radical chart, reputation wealth & fame denoted by a transit will have a very limited scope for expression.
On the other hand, if both directional & transit influences are adverse, even the longevity of the native will be threatened. For human beings there are 100 types of Apamrityu or temporal death periods and one Kala Mrityu or genuine Death period. The transitory death period or Apamrityu can be warded off by Remedial Astrology, by Homa & other divine remedial measures, whereas Kala Mrityu or genuine Death cannot be warded off, says Vedic Astrology Readings.
Aries & Cancer people – Take this opportunity of a favorable Saturnine
Transit and prosper. You have to channelize your energies in a special way.
