Astrologers and people alike have always been awestruck by this one planet that seems to have hung over and above everyone and anyone- one planet that doesn’t mind being what it represents and goes about manifesting what is stands for without prejudice and discrimination! This is a short piece to perhaps the most beautiful of all the planets with our solar system- which also happens to be so much misunderstood!
To begin with, let me tell you, through my experience I have never seen Saturn and it’s manifestation to be negative- as they say- Every disconnect that happens pushes an individual to connect with something else and that something else is almost always the direction of your karma and the duty that you must perform as the soul traverses through its eternal journey from one life to another!
Saturn, if you ask me, stands for all that is sane and wise- it is about service orientation to the mass level and working for and among the service class. Saturn is about manifesting major transformation through time, slowly but certainly. As Saturn begins to create an impact one will almost and always come across massive transformations within people- you may find people getting more disciplined, serious, introspective and making an effort to try and focus on what matters and what is needed to continue to manifest what their final duty is! Say, you are a businessmen- the major transit or impact of Saturn will ensure that whatever you have sown through your efforts in the business that you have will be directed towards creating value and space for the people who are associated with it- whether employees, consumers or all related stake holders- the moment you succumb to the cardinal sin of greed and try to block that flow of energy of distribution of benefit to all those who deserve- you will end up activating the negative aspects of Saturn! Saturn works and pushes for an individual as long as you are on the right path to the karma associated with your soul, a slight deviation from your soul’s travel path and you will be reined back- at times harshly at times subtly depending on what is the need of the time then!
Saturn is a planet which provides the pause that people should cultivate as they go about their mundane lives- the pause which is essential to take a step back and think- “Is this really what I am here for?” Well not many will agree or be able to comprehend- but the journey of the soul has nothing to do with the manifestations of the material definitions that we have ended labeling our lives with! Certainly materialistic indulgences are part of the process but are never the destination and that’s where majority of them end up being trapped and that trap becomes all consuming which endures endless cycles being stuck on the same planetary plane of Earth with no ability to rise above and move further ahead!
None of the celestial objects associated with astrology- the signs, the planets, the naskshatras intend any harm- why would they? We must never forget at the end of it each one of us is the element and fabric of the same cosmic dust that the universe is made up of! So there’s no logical way why any of the founding elements would want to damage or cause hurt to us! Moreover the definition of hurt is often always related to the inability to satisfy human greed for one or the other reason- the ever existing challenge of “Not knowing when enough is enough” and move on and ahead!
Saturn is all about directing your energies to the people who are your responsibility- the masses- It does not need you to always be a leader even small acts of kindness to even perfect strangers will end up adding good karma to your soul and make the journey a little bit more enriching and wiser! Saturn is about acting with clarity and from a core principle stand point of Dharma– What we normally think to be the right thing to do- when we see from the Dharmic lens- of being Fair without prejudice would end up being the most stupid thing to do! Say, your kid asks you another round of sweets, well as a parent you will want to oblige knowing well, too much indulgence can turn to be counterproductive to the health of your kid! So in this instance the Saturn in you has to be at the forefront of it and be able to create a rational which is a powerful and purpose driven which helps the kid to understand why and how to reduce the indulgence then rather making an excuse for that one time or ending up with an unwanted harsh episode with the kid!
When you want to work- Saturn is all the people around you- colleagues, superiors, juniors everyone- all of them whom your work impacts and touches- when you are receptive to what they say and are able to communicate well and with clarity and direction of purpose that’s when you find success in the work area (that’s what management says) and that’s exactly how Saturn also manifests- unless you don’t indulge in non-productive practices which don’t serve the purpose of the task at hand- Saturn will allow you to work without a glitch and go about tasting the success which will be hallmarked by your handwork, intelligence and general acceptance and likability around the work place and beyond!
Likewise on the front of your personal space- Saturn is all about what you do and how do you do about performing your duties and karma related to each and every touch point that you have– the moment you try to escape or take a short-path, you will find yourself redoing that task all over again- Saturn is about understanding the rational of tasks and executing them so that the intended benefit of the event reaches to those who are required to receive the same.
Any person that you meet and interact wit, who has felt the activation of Saturn either through transit, Dasha or other yoga’s forming- will tell you one thing for sure, that the event would have transformed the person- whenever people resist the transformation it will end up being more challenging and problematic, once you begin to accept it as a learning and align your self to what is being taught to you through the transit- life will suddenly start to seem to be lighter, directed and purpose driven!
Given the limitation of the blog, I will stop here and will urge you to think about the most transformative times of your life and the chances are they would have a lot to do with this amazing, wonderful and misunderstood planet called Saturn!
