Over the past few months, I have been noticing that the set of people who come to me for consultation have one important trait in their horoscope – almost 50% of them have Saturn in Scorpio in their charts. A significant percent also have Saturn in retrograde as well. Please note that these are people who are coming to me as an astrologer and not the ones I pick up on the forum for my own learning.
As Saturn is in Scorpio as of now (see this article for reference), it means that Saturn is now transiting over its natal position. This is an extremely important event – happens at the age multiple of 29 years. This transit markes some significant changes in the life of these individuals. The life, life style and the direction changes for some of these individuals. The period may see to be a turbulent period, but things usually change for the better after this period is over, unless they are going through an inimical dasha/bhukti period.
Depending on where the Saturn is located, the change will be accordingly signified – e.g. if Saturn is in a powerful position in the natal chart, then the career of the individual may take off in a different trajectory. An inimical position of Saturn in the natal chart in 4th or 12th houses will cause changes in residence. Saturn located in or aspecting 7th will cause disruption in marriage, or, it may also indicate that the person reevaluates his/her partners in the business.
