Planetary Transits


Basics of Planetary Transits (Example Sun)

By Kshitij Sharma, July 13, 2014

I was not able to finish the post on weekly predictions due to various reasons. As it is a habit to come up with an article at the end of the week, I am sharing the notes on transits that I refer to most often. I am aware that these notes are not very useful to many of the readers who come to this site for quick information, but this may be seen as my attempt to make my notes public and help someone out there with the jyotish knowledge.

Yesterday was Guru Poornima and I would like to thank teachers like Shri Suresh Chandra Mishra, Shri Jagannath Bhasin and Shri L.R. Chawdhri who have taught me planetary transits through their books.

Rahu/Ketu Transit 2014

By Kshitij Sharma, June 29, 2014

Find out how Rahu/Ketu transit of 2014 in Virgo and Pisces respectively will affect you according to the janma rashi. If I take the latitude and longitude of Bangalore, Rahu/Ketu will enter the signs around midnight of July 12/13 2014 and will stay in these signs for approximately one and a half year till 9 January 2016. Rahu and Ketu are mathematical entities exactly 180° apart. Therefore, when Rahu enters Virgo, Ketu enters Pisces. Both the transits have different effect on the individual as per his/her janma rashi as derived from the natal horoscope. While Rahu and Ketu are exactly 180° apart, it does not mean that an adverse transit of Rahu is beneficial transit for Ketu and vice-versa.

Sadhe Sati, Saturn’s Transit

By Kshitij Sharma, September 2, 2006

Saturn is the slowest planet in the solar system that is relevant to Vedic/Indian Astrology. It takes 29.5 years to complete one revolution around the Sun. Considering 12 rashis, it would be in one rashi for 29.5/12 ~ 2.5 years. In Gochara, Saturn’s transits are given a lot of importance because it stays in a rashi for the longest time. In general, Saturn is associated with qualities of being cold and heavy like the metal iron. It destroys attributes of the house it is associated with by its association or drishti. Being the slowest planet, it also causes delays and is retarding in nature.

Sadhe sati is referred to the seven and a half year period when Saturn transits over natal moon and adjoining houses. Translating this to from Astrology to English would take some effort :-). Continue reading
