Saturn and Marriage

By Kshitij Sharma, Nov 04, 2014

The problem that astrologers and general populace is that they view Saturn as malefic planet for all cases.

Please refer to this article on Saturn in order to understand the treatment of Saturn in the Vedic horoscope. Further, transit effect of Saturn through Scorpio from Nov 2014 through Oct 2017 is described in this article, where it brings auspicious results for few signs. ItsContinue reading
