Since long time I thought of writing an article on ‘Sade Sati’ or ‘Elinati Shani’ i.e., Saturn transit on 12th, 1st and 2nd houses from Moon/Janma Rasi and its impact on native. A lot of literature is available on this subject and different opinions by different authors. Some authors opine that Sade Sati to be considered as Saturn transit on 45-degrees of either side of Moon. However, according to Matreshwara’s Phaladeepika, it is the transit of Saturn on 12th, 1st and 2nd houses from Moon and I follow the same.
In the process of literature review for writing the article I stumbled upon the Chandulal Patels’s article on ‘Nadi Principles Behind Saturn’s Transit’ and that led to writing of this blog post
According to Nadi Astrology, Saturn’s transit results can be delieanated from four different ways and is completely different from Sade Sati concept.
- House-wise transit results of Saturn
- Transit results of Saturn through or from certain houses as counted Chandra Navamsa Rasi
- Degree wise transit results of Saturn over and in trines to seven planets
- Degree wise transit of Saturn over the lords of the 8th house its trines from each house.
These are Nadi astrology principles and are from Chandrakala Nadi also known as Devakeralam.
In the above principles Saturn transit to be reckoned from LAGNA, not from CHANDRA/MOON Rasi.
For this article, I want to write about the first principle i.e., house-wise transit results of Saturn.
The house from which the eighth house when transited by Saturn and the other three houses from which the respective eighth houses when aspected by Saturn suffer afflictions.
Let’s take an example of a horoscope withTauruss Ascendant and Saturn transit in Sagittarius.
|1. Saturn transit in Sagittarius. For which house this is eighth house? Count eight houses from transit Saturn in anti-clockwise direction i.e., Lagna/Ascendant.
2. The three houses from 3, 7 and 10th from Lagna will suffer afflictions by Saturn.
3. In this case the Saturn transit in Sagittarius afflicts Lagna, 3rd, 7th and 10th houses.
4. Let’s analyze the significations of these house and see the impact of Saturn on these significations.
5. Subtle observation is necessary to understand these concepts
|Lagna||Physical and mental worries, health issues|
|Third House||Failure in efforts, ear troubles, mental delusions, issues with siblings|
|Seventh House||Wife’s sickness, loss of partnership in business|
|Tenth House||Loss of job, complains about spinal cords|
A learned astrologer has to analyze carefully and deduce the type of afflictions to the related houses due to the transit of Saturn.
Below table shows the Saturn transit from Lagna and it’s the houses it afflicts.
|Transit House||Houses Afflicted (Simple Rule count 8 houses in anti-clock direction from Saturn and houses Saturn aspects|
The Author of Chandra Kala Nadi, Shri Achyuta has given so much of information about transit of Saturn in single verse. This is called as ‘Linear Approximation of Non-Linear Reality of Astrology’. The single verse is the Linear Approximation to the hidden vast knowledge i.e, Non-Linear Reality.
Shri C S Patel, also emphasizes the need of doing research on each and every of Chandra ala Nadi to understand the non-linear concepts behind them.
If anyone interested they can share their birth details (email@example.com) for an analysis of Saturn’s transit from this perspective and the same can be used as a case study without disclosing personal information.
