Vedic Saturn transit in Libra
and the effect to all 12 signs


Saturn or Sani will enter sidereal Libra or Tula from November 14, 2011 through November 2, 2014 US time zones. Saturn enters Libra every 30 years and the sign Libra is Saturn’s exaltation placement helping it give it’s best results but Saturn is still the great malefic and will give delays, detachment, obstacles, separations, suffering, hardships, chronic conditions and death. But an exalted Saturn is very good for attracting and handling major responsibilities, relationship commitment as its in Libra, business partnerships and for being more disciplined and focused. Saturn rules democracy and can give beneficial support transiting in Libra to bring a more democratic government to the Arab nations who are currently fighting and struggling for a government to be voted and ruled by its people.

When Saturn enters Libra it will be supported by the great benefic Jupiter or Guru, who will be in the opposite sign of Aries throwing a favorable aspect until May 16, 2012. Jupiter’s protective grace along with Saturn in its exalted sign will bring growth and support to Libra but Saturn will still bring delays and challenges but Jupiter will allow Saturn to begin slowly to bring more favorable results. But when Jupiter is in Aries and Saturn in Libra it will trigger a double transit to the sign Sagittarius. A double transit is when Jupiter and Saturn influence the same sign that brings support, protection and growth to the conditions of the house that Sagittarius rules in each horoscope. This double transit should be more favorable for business and our world economies and especially for the US because the most commonly used Lagna of the US is Sagittarius.

Jupiter will enter Taurus May 16, 2012 through May 30, 2013 and while in Taurus will be form a 6/8 relationship to Saturn, which gives struggles and delays. Therefore the Jupiter will no longer be providing its luck and protection to Saturn and Jupiter in Taurus will be joining malefic Ketu, who is also in Taurus until January 15, 2013. Ketu and Jupiter aligning can be excellent for spiritual growth but as Ketu also brings confusion and chronic dissatisfaction and Jupiter is a karaka of wealth then May 16, 2012 until January 15, 2013 could be challenging for business and finances.

Jupiter will enter Gemini and form a very favorable 5/9 planetary relationship with Saturn from May 30, 2013 through June 18, 2014. Jupiter in Gemini will bring its blessings to Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius and Saturn is also occupying Libra and aspecting Sagittarius, therefore Sagittarius will regain support by the double transit again and Jupiter will also help Saturn give its best results to Libra. This is also because of the 5/9 relationship of Jupiter and Saturn is generally very favorable for the world economies.

Jupiter enters its exalted position in Cancer as it does every 12 years June 18, 2014 for one year with Saturn still in its exalted sign until November 2, 2014. Jupiter and Saturn will form a 4/10 challenging relationship but Jupiter will bring many opportunities to Cancer but Saturn will delay the process as it will be also be aspecting Cancer.
