Saturn is referred to as Shanaishchar (the slow mover)
in Sanskrit. This is because it takes about 2 ½ years to pass through each sign
of the zodiac. It takes about 28 years to travel through all 12 signs of the
zodiac. A native will experience first Saturn return on his 28th to
30th birthday. At this time the planet finally returns to the place
in the sky where it was at the time of birth. The first Saturn return is a
turning point in a person’s life. It is
a time when the native has experienced enough of life to get a firm grasp on
what direction he wants to go in the adult life. At this point in time native
with Libra moon sign are going to experience this phase. The second Saturn
return comes around the age of 58 to 60 years. During this phase the native
looks at his life and is able to see what went wrong and take matters into his
hands and improve things. This is also phase when a person can use to either fulfil
or abandon the dreams and fantasies he had in his youth (a time when he was
less informed about the ways of the world.) Natives with Capricorn moon sign is
going to experience this phase of Saturn return. The third Saturn return comes
at the age of 80 to 90 years. At this time the native has become old and feels
out of step with the present world. However, this is only an illusion as a
person rich in experience is a valuable asset and his wisdom can be put to use.
When Saturn transits the moon sign, then signs placed
second and 12th from this sign are supposed to be undergoing Sade
saati of Saturn. At present Saturn is placed in Libra and all the natives whose
moon signs are Virgo, Libra and Scorpio are going through this phase. On 2
November 2014 Saturn will transit to the zodiac sign of Scorpio, now the zodiac
signs which will experience Sade saati will be Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius.
With the change in the position of Saturn all the zodiac signs will get affected.
For some signs this transit will be beneficial while for others it may be yet
another testing time.
Saturn is said
to be cold and dry, tamasic (lazy) and an elderly planet. He is said to have a
malefic aspect and is also considered as a malefic planet. It is generally
thought that planet Saturn brings bad luck, creates problems causes obstacles
in the fulfilment of plans, exposes one’s faults and restricts one’s
lifestyle. No doubt all the apprehensions are true to a large extent. However,
Saturn does not do this to trouble the native but to make the person more
responsible, wise and become worthy to make a mark in one’s life and earn
