Planet Saturn: Attributes, Transit & Remedies

Brief Description

Saturn is one of the 9 planets in Vedic Astrology which is arguably the most dreaded of all. The famous 7.5 years period of ‘Shani Sade Sati’ more often than not turns a person’s life upside down. We must understand that planets provide us with the results of our past karmas that could go back to several lifetimes, in this current life of ours.

However, planet Saturn is represented by Lord Shani, who is the God of Justice and for obvious reasons the type of our karmas that Saturn holds to be being accounted for, are mostly negative. Therefore, the results of the periods of Saturn’s operation in our life are predominantly (but not always) negative or punishing.

Gemstone associated with Saturn

Blue Sapphire is the gemstone which is associated with planet Saturn. It is also known by the name of “Neelam”. If an astrologer finds a favourably placed Saturn in a person’s natal horoscope then the astrologer recommends this life-changing gemstone to the person. This is simply because if Saturn is favourable for a person and that person wears Blue Sapphire, then the gemstone harnesses the incredibly powerful energies of Saturn and propels the person’s life to exponential success!

However, it must always be kept in mind that Blue Sapphire draws the intense energy of planet Saturn and therefore one must wear a Blue Sapphire only after getting it recommended from an experienced astrologer.

Significance of Saturn’s Transit

Saturn on an average takes about 2.5 years to transit from one sign of the Zodiac Belt to the next. However, from time to time, this period may vary to a certain extent by the change in the movement of Saturn due to the planet going into retrograde motion for a while.

The transit of Saturn is among those few planetary transits that warrant extreme caution on the part of a person depending upon various factors such as:

  • Placement of Saturn in the person's Natal Horoscope
  • Position of the Natal Moon from Natal Saturn
  • House & Sign through which Saturn is currently transiting
  • Other planetary conjunctions & aspects to Saturn on the transit level

It is highly recommended that a person must be aware at all times about the likely effects of the ongoing transit of Saturn on certain key aspects of his/her life especially if the person is going through the phase of ‘Sade Sati’. Remember, it is of utmost importance to plan & execute your actions based on what the ‘dreaded’ Saturn has in store for you. Hence, always go through what the ongoing transit of Saturn is signifying for you based on your own natal horoscope.

Remedies for a ‘Troubling’ Saturn

First & foremost, we must understand that Saturn is not our enemy. In fact, no planet is. The planets simply provide us with the results of our own karmas that we did in the past, both good as well as bad. It is just that Saturn keeps account of more or rather most of our intensely negative karmas as compared to other planets. Therefore, Saturn is painted as a planet that punishes us way more than it rewards us.

But, that is not true. Saturn is a judge and all we need to do before the judge to have leniency or pardon, is plead.

It is highly recommended to have certain incredibly powerful & result oriented Vedic Rituals being performed in your name such as the “Shani Shanti Hanuman Puja” by a learned priest to please Lord Shani. Once a person pleases Lord Shani, the punishing effects of Saturn are significantly reduced or even removed in case the underlying negative karmas are not that intense.

So, it is prudent to get your horoscope thoroughly analyzed by an experienced astrologer and take the steps that are necessary to please Lord Shani and seek His blessings that will result in pacifying planet Saturn which is causing troubles in various domains of your life based on its placement in your horoscope as well as its transitory movement in the Zodiac Belt.

Lastly, it is not just about safeguarding yourself by treating the punishing effects of Saturn but, making smart decisions based on the natal position and transitory movement of Saturn that would lead you to a smooth, peaceful & prosperous life.
