StarScope Special : Jupiter-Saturn in Virgo-Cancer

By: Gamini Dissanayake 

Jupiter, the great benefic, is the guide and guru, the spiritual teacher, returns to Virgo after 12 years. He signifies dhamma, the law of our inner nature and self-realization, the truth, devotion, dedication and principles in life, law, religion and philosophy, intelligence including cosmic intelligence, creativity including children, personal fulfillment and joy in living, luck, Divine grace, good health and immune system, musical talent and husband in a female chart. 
A strong Jupiter in a birth chart simply denotes fortune, expansion, and Divine protection. A negative or afflicted Jupiter gives unrealistic optimism and generosity, and makes us vulnerable to deceit [deceptive schemes of others], bad judgment, bad luck, conflict with authorities and losses in speculation and litigation. In medical astrology, Jupiter represents liver, spleen, gall bladder disorders and diseases, obesity, fat in the body, diabetes, fever, fainting, ear troubles and laziness. Being a slow moving planet [this applies to Rahu, Ketu and Saturn as well] the diseases caused by Jupiter are chronic in nature. 

Jupiter will be on fortunate PushKara Navamsa/PN: Sep 28-Oct 13, Oct 29-Nov 15, May 2, 05-July 9, 05. Retrogrades Feb 2-Jun 5, 05. His MrityuBhaga/MB in Virgo will be Sep 15-Sep 20, 04. His Naksahtra transits are: UttraPhalguni[Uttrapal] to Hasta on Oct 13, To Chitra/Sitha on Dec 31, re-enters Hasta Mar 6, 05, To Chitra on Aug 25, 05 Saturn, who takes approximately 29 1/2 years to go thru the 12 signs of the zodiac, moves to Cancer on Sep 6. He retrogrades Nov 8-May 22, 05, re-enters Gemini Jan 13, 05 and comes back to Cancer on May 26, 05. He goes to Leo on Nov 1, 2006. 

Saturn is generally the most difficult of all planets. Feared as Yama or the God of Death, he signifies old age, death and disease, poverty and separation, solitude, ugliness and perversity, negation, sorrow, pessimism, and misery, delay, decay and deformity. 

On the plus side he gives endurance, power of discipline, and spiritual life. Death that takes us beyond the limitations of mortal life. As a a strongly placed benefic, Saturn bestows great wealth and stability. In medical astrology, rules chronic and incurable or karmic diseases, legs and feet, nerves, lymphatics, distal part of the colon and rectum, insanity, paralysis, glandular diseases, tumors and cancers, unforeseen dangers, fatigue, depression and melancholy, injuries from falls. Stunted growth, deafness and blindness. 

It is interesting to note that Brahma Purana prescribes Bodhi Pooja to alleviate ill effects of Saturn Erastaka. A weak and afflicted natal Moon sitting in Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Aries or Sagittarius can cause the ill effects of Sani Erastaka in individual charts when supported by other factors. His PN: Sep 6-Oct 29, Nov 18-Jan 13, 05, Mar 7-Apr 6 05 Rx in Gemini, May 26-Jun 25, 05, Jul 21-Aug 16, 05. MB: Aug 8-16, 05. Gandanatha/GD in Cancer: Sep 24 -Nov 1, 06. His nakshatra transits are: Punavasu to Pushya on Oct 29. Re-enters Punavasu Nov 18.
Rahu and Ketu move to Pisces and Virgo respectively on Feb 22, 05 [calculated as True Nodes, not Mean] and stay thru to Nov 8, 2006.

 When badly placed they can be meaner, more difficult and troublesome than Saturn. The nodes have the capacity to cause eclipses that block out the light of the Sun and the Moon. They can show how collective karma shadows the individual life and also collective catastrophes. As shadowy/chaya planets, the nodes take on and magnify the power of the planets they associate with. 

A strong Rahu [especially in 3,6,11 houses] gives material wealth and success but not inner fulfillment. The ability to foresee mass trends and movements and psychic powers. Also Rahu can put us in harmony with collective trends. The downside is danger from drugs, black magic, illusion, hallucination, paranoia, neurosis, and other abnormal sensitivities of the mind and nervous system. Danger from toxins, snake bites, diagnostic confusion. 
Rahu's GD days are: Jan-Jun 05 [with the orb of influence] MB in Pisces: May 25-Jun 7,06. PN: Apr 14-Jun 14, 06 and Jul 21- Nov 8, 06. His Nakshatra transits: Ashvini/Asvida to Revati on Feb 22, 05. To UttraBhadra Pada/Uttraputupa on Dec 16, 2005. Ketu PN in Virgo: Dec 14,05- Jan 15, 06 and Apr 7- Jun 6, 06. MB; Jul 17-Aug 25, 05.
Ketu is the lesser malefic who creates doubt, disturbance, conflict, narrow vision in life and shows the individual trapped in self doubt and contracted energies, negative, alienated and critical. The positive side is: gives great power to concentrate, powerful perception, capacity for psychic and spiritual insight, liberation, and wisdom. Health problems are generally same as for Rahu. Additionally, leads to diseases of uncertain origin, epidemics, eruptive fevers, viral and infective diseases, deafness, defective speech and surgery. Ketu Naksahtras are: Swati/Sa to Chitra on Dec 16, Hasta on Jul 20, 05. To Uttrapal on Apr 6, 06 Neptune and Uranus will be in Capricorn and Aquarius respectively.

 Pluto, the war planet will be extremely mean and explosive on Gandanatha both In Scorpio and in Sagittarius from Feb 8, 05 and when re-enters Scorpio on May 15, 05. Also when he returns to Sagittarius on Dec 6, 05
Please note: To time any significant event in life, we need the blessings of both Jupiter and Saturn -what KN Rao calls the "Double Transit of Jupiter and Saturn".

As usual, please note that the predictions or indications given for the 12 signs are strictly based on transit of planets. Note the periods of helpful planets when they overlap or run together. They are better or best. How they affect your specifically depend on the energies of your individual/natal charts.

Career/Education: Both Saturn in 4th house [prestige, learning, joy] and Jupiter in 6th [service, the will to win] connect with the 10th house [success in career, and for students and scholars, their academic activities] and this is great for advancement and shine. If the natal Moon was sitting in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces or Gemini, Jupiter forms the Gaja Keshari Yoga/GKY for power and expansion. If supported by running Dashas of 1,4,5,7,9,10,11 lords or of strongly placed planets in those houses plus strong Ashtaka Vargas you will experience a significant elevation during the coming year. For Aries, Jupiter as the 9/12 lord in the 6th is great for strong sense of service, justice, legal, medical, defense/law enforcement, humanitarian/community work, fortune overseas, success in litigation. Saturn will elevate and stabilize the career and public life. The Sun in Leo: Aug 17-Sep 17, Virgo with Jupiter Sep 17-Oct 17, Sagittarius Dec 15-Jan 14, in Capricorn: [your 10th house] Jan 14-Feb 12, Aquarius: Feb 12-Mar 14, Aries: Apr 14- May 1 4, Taurus: May 14-Jun 15, Cancer Jul 17-Aug 17 [these are approximately same for every year] gives more power and lustre.

Finance/Fortune: Jupiter, when associated with Venus, the Sun, Moon and Mars are best for financial fortune. For the Sun: Aug 17-Oct 17, Dec 12-Mar 14, 05, Apr 14-Jun 15, 05 and Jul 17-Sep 28. For Venus: Sep 1-Nov 17, Jan 5-May 30, 05 and Jun 24-Oct 3,05. For Mars: thru to Nov 2, Jan 29-Mar 12, 05, Mar 12-Apr 24, 05 [best when he gets exalted in Capricorn] Apr 24 to end of 2005 and beyond. For the Moon please note the days when she passes Cancer-Virgo, Sagittarius-Taurus from the weekly StarScope column or my site

Romance/Marriage: Venus your 7th lord [long term relationships] can bond relationships or marriage Nov 17-Dec 12, marriage with the blessings of the family Jan 5-29 05, Apr 12-May 6,05, May 30-Aug 13 and Sep 7-Oct 3, 05. The unfavourable periods for bliss and harmony in relationships are. Oct 24-Nov 17, Dec 12-Jan 5, 05 Mar 19-Apr 11, and Aug 13-Sep 7, 05. Also Nov 2- Dec 17 when Mars passes 7th house and the Rahu-Ketu-Axis or RKA and to a lesser extent the 8th house Dec 17-Jan 29, 05, and the 12th house Jun 4-July 19, 05 again the RKA on12/6 house axis.

Family: The best periods of the Sun given for career above are also nice for the success of children and father. If the Saturn is badly afflicted and weak [like with Mars or the Nodes plus Venus] Saturn's stay in Cancer can cause trouble to mother and family, a restricted feeling at home, problems with house and property and emotional challenges. The Sun in Libra [debilitated and on RKA this year] Oct 17-Nov 16, in Scorpio Nov 16-Dec 15, Pisces [again caught up on RKA next year] Mar 14-Apr 14 and in Cancer are periods of challenges to father and kids. With siblings conflicts can arise Oct 31-Nov 24, Mar 19-May 8, 05, and May 26-Jun 8, 05. Note, however, that Jupiter as the 9th lord [father] in the 6th [disease] can cause health problems, falls/hurt, inflammatory conditions to father. Virgo is also the 6th house of the Kala Purusha or the Fixed Zodiac. And the 6th indicates health problems and hurt plus enemy activities.

Health: Unless you are running hostile dashas of badly placed Mercury, Mars, Venus, Saturn and the Nodes, Jupiter in Virgo cannot challenge your health in a big way. Note Mars in Virgo Sep 17-Nov 2. This is a period that can cause hurt and sickness. A double Vipareetha of Mars and Jupiter here [ 8/12 lords in the 6th house] can give unexpected elevation and fortune and gainful travel, but can also cause sickness and hospitalization if you are running bad dashas. Mars in 7th on RKA Nov 2-Dec 17, and again Jun 6-Jul 19, 05 are periods to watch and take more care. The Nodes in Pisces-Virgo axis [Feb 22, 05-Nov 8, 2006 True Nodes] has got Rahu in the 12th house, whose downside is feet and sleep problems, confinement/hospitalization. Ketu in 6th gives good health and success. Jupiter's presence on the RKA, as said above erects a protective shield.


Career/education: Jupiter may not be your best buddy [because he owns the 8th house] but he still can give material wealth, unexpected gain , research skills and, as always, spiritual wealth and expansion. Virgo your 5th house, is excellent for all these. Saturn, Mercury and the Sun are the ones that help your career: professional or academic. Mercury and Saturn play a major role as they lord over 2/5 and 9/10 houses. For the Gaja Keshari Yoga, your natal Moon has to be in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces or Gemini. When Saturn gets to Cancer, he aspects your 9th house: fortune, higher learning, benign power, productive overseas journeys. The other good periods for career are: The Sun: thru to Oct 17, Nov 16-Dec 15, Jan 14-Apr 14 and May 14-Oct 17. These are approximately same for every year. Mercury: thru to Sep 25, Sep 25- Oct 12 best, Oct 12-31, Jan 26-Mar 1, 05 next best, May 26-Sep 18, 05, Sep 18-Oct 6, 05 best. If these periods overlap, it would be extra nice and cool.
Financial fortune: Mercury in Virgo naturally is the best period, Sep 25-Oct 12 this year and Sep 18-Oct 6 next year. Mind you this is your ATM or the bank machine, the 2/5 lord gets exalted here. Mercury in 9-11 houses [do not worry about his neecha/debility in Pisces, especially if Venus gets connected] Jan 29-Mar 1, 05 and in Pisces Mar 1-May 8, 05. May 26-Jun 25,05 in Lagna and 2nd house, Sep 2-18, 05 in 4th and Sep 18-Oct 6 exalted again in Virgo. For Venus: thru to Sep 1 in 2nd house, Sep 28-Jan 5, 05 in 3-7 houses, better in 9-10 houses Jan 29-Mar 19, 05 and best is in 11th house Pisces exalted Mar 19-Apr 12, 05, in Lagna and 2nd May 6-Jun 24, 05, and 4/5 houses Jul 19-Oct 6,05. Look for periods that overlap or run together. Saturn is nice. From Cancer he sees 5th and 9th houses and also 12th house. Many productive journeys. Brings the best of your caring and humanitarian ideals. Donating more to worthy causes like helping the vulnerable: kids and elderly persons.
Romance/marriage: From the side, the yoga karaka Saturn blesses. For anything to happen we need the blessings of both Jupiter and Saturn [a theory that I have been emphasizing during the past 5 years in this column] Mars your 7th lord is nice when in 4-5 houses thru to Nov 2, better in the 7th house Dec 17- Jan 29, 05 and best in the 9th house [blessed by both Jupiter and Saturn] Mar 12-Apr 24, 05. Nice also in the 11th [the 3rd leg of the Kama Trikona] Pisces Jun 4-Jul 19, 05. Note: Pluto , mean and hostile on Gandanatha/GD is hovering in Scorpio thru to Dec 5 , 05. He can cause stress on GD in individual charts. Check also your correct navamsa chart and its 7th lord, and dashas and other factors for timing of marriage
Family: Mars in 6th Nov 2-Dec 17 [depressed on the Rahu-Ketu-Axis/RKA, in the 8th house Jan 29-Mar 12, 05, and to a lesser extent Jul 19 to end of 05 can challenge the happiness of partner. The good periods given above in romance/marriage, promote happiness and well being of partner. The best periods of Mercury given above are best for the success of kids. Note : Nov 24-Jan 26. 05 involves a parivartana or mutual exchange of 5/8 houses by Mercury and Jupiter and can cause unexpected difficulties, health issues with kids. Also May 8-26, 05 for health problems, possible hospitalization if running bad dasas in charts. If you got teenage kids Rahu and Ketu on 5/11 axis [from Feb 05] can cause problems with passion or addiction. Be very sensitive to their emotional needs. For mother and father the good periods of the Sun given above are nice.. For health challenges: note Oct 17-Nov 16, Dec 15-Jan 14
Health: For possible hurt and auto accidents: The Sun's neecha in Libra Oct 17-Nov 16, in the 8th house Dec 15- Jan 14 and in the 11th house caught up on RKA: Mar 14-Apr 14 and Jun 15- Jul 16 in the 2nd house aspected by Mars from the 11th house on RKA. Mars Jun 4-Jul 18, can be difficult, hooked on RKA. Can cause problems to siblings as well. Venus in the 8th Jan 5-29, 05, in 12th Apr 12-May 6 are the other periods that require more health and safety consciousness.


Career/Education: For Gaja Keshari combination of Jupiter and Moon please see Taurus. Virgo is your 4th house and from here, Jupiter sees his own 10th house Pisces. From Cancer, Saturn connects with Jupiter, the 10th lord, thus fulfilling the requirements for an year that will help your career advance well. All you need is a little help from running Dashas. Other best transits are: Mercury in 4/5 houses Sep 25-Oct 31, in the 7th: Nov 24-Jan 26, 05 [a parivartana with Jupiter, a mutual exchange of 4/7 houses is very helpful during this period] in 9-10 houses: Feb 13, May 8, 05. To a lesser extent in 11th house May 8-26, 05. Then to Lagna and 2nd house Jun 8-Sep 2, 05. and back to Virgo Sep 18-Oct 6, 05 and finally to the 5th house Oct 6-25, 05. The Sun gives good energy in Scorpio Nov 16-Dec 15, Sagittarius Dec 15-Jan 14, in 9-11 houses Feb 12-May 14, in Lagna: Jun 15-Jul 17, and in Leo and Virgo Aug 17- Oct 17.
Venus in 4-5 houses Oct 24-Dec 12, in 7th house Jan 5-29, 05, 9-11 houses Feb 22, 05-May 6, 05. In Lagna and 2nd house May 30,05-Jul 19, 05, and back to 4/5 houses Aug 13-Oct 3, 05. Gives fortune, creativity and status.

Note the good periods of 2 or more planets overlapping, they are better.
Financial fortune: Venus in 5th Libra is the best Nov 17-Dec 12 this year Sep 7-Oct 3 next year. Venus in 9th house Feb 22-Mar 19, 05 is also nice. Her exaltation in 10th house Mar 19-Apr 12, in the 11th house Apr 12-May 6, 05 , in Lagna and 2nd house May 30-Jul 19, 05, in 4/5 houses Aug 13-Oct 3, 05 are also good for $$$. For Mercury note the good periods given above. Saturn in 2nd [9th lord in 2nd] is also helpful and being the 8th lord in 2nd Cancer, can give unexpected fortune. So is Mars in Libra: Nov 2-Dec 17, in Capricorn-Aries Mar 12-Feb 6, 06.For the Moon, your 2nd Lord of financial resources , check out my weekly StarScope for her good days.
Romance/Marriage: Jupiter to 4th house stabilizes the kendra houses which is nice. Moreover, Saturn will aspect your 7th lord Jupiter thru to Jan 13, 05 and again May 26- Sep 28, 05 which is also great for bonding relationships. So are Venus in 7th house Jan 5-29, 05. Note Venus in 5th Libra, 9th Aquarius Feb 22-Mar 19, 05, in Lagna and back in Libra. These periods are given already.
Family: Jupiter in 4th helps partner expand assets and progress in career/public life. Saturn in 2nd helps evolve your spiritually while remaining in the family environment. At times he can give you a strong sense of detachment though. Mars can cause tensions with partner Jan 29-Apr 24, 05, and cause aggressive emotions toward partner Sep 17- Nov 2, this year. . The good periods of Venus given above are nice for kids as well. Problems in both interaction with and the health of kids can surface Dec 12- Jan 5, 05 and Jan 29- Feb 22, 05 and May 6-30, 05. Mercury's good periods favour the mother, and Saturn can cause hurt/falls to father. Also note Sun in Libra and Capricorn for possible stress to dad and siblings.
Health: Periods that can cause hurt and accidents are when Mars comes to the 4th and Mercury goes to 6th. These are Sep 17-Nov 2 and Oct 31-Nov 24. Check the weekly Star Scope for the bad MB/GD days of Mars and Mercury during this periods. When they go to 8th and 11 houses [Capricorn and Aries] they can cause health problems, cuts, wounds, surgery, blood problems, skin problems, digestive difficulties and in the reproductive area and knees are shown if supported by dasas and other factors in your charts. These periods are Jan 29- Feb 13, 05 and May 8-26, 05 for Mercury and Mar 12- Apr 24, 05 and July 19 - Feb 06, 06 for Mars.


Career/Education: From Virgo, Jupiter does not see or connect with your 10th house. He can compensate this by connecting with the 10th house counted from your natal Moon. For this, your natal Moon has to be sitting in Aries, Taurus or Sagittarius. If that requirement is fulfilled note the days when Saturn connects with the 10th lord Mars: These are: Sep 17-Nov 2, Mar 12-Apr 24, 05 [best as Mars is exalted here] Jul 19, 05-Feb 6, 06 [very nice as Mars is in his own 10th house] For the Gaja Keshari Yoga to roll, your natal Moon has to be in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces or Gemini. Thus we note that if you had Sagittarius Moon [check also the Navamsa/D9 and the Dashamsa /D 10 to see if these combinations are present] there will be a truly significant raise in career if supported by Dashas and other factors. Venus and Sun [if placed well in charts] supported by Lagna Lord Moon and Mars, can also help outstanding performance in school or workplace. 
Financial fortune: Jupiter is your 9th lord of fortune and from Virgo the 3rd house, he sees the 9th which is nice. In fact, the next 2 years are better. In other words, well planned and executed projects are sure to pay off well in late 2005-07. Mars is very helpful except for the period Apr 25-Jun 4, 05 when he gets hooked in the stressful 8th house. Mars in 8th can also cause problems to career and to kids. Venus good periods are Nov 17-Jan 5, 05. Mar 19-Apr 12 , 05 [best as she is exalted here in the 9th house and seen by Jupiter from Virgo] Apr 12-May 30, 05 in 10/11 houses, Jun 24-Aug 13, 05 in Lagna and 2nd house, Sep 7-Oct 3, 05 in the 5th house with Jupiter [a very nice period for $$$] Also the Sun in 5th house Nov 16-Dec 15, in the 9th -11th houses Mar 14-Jun 15, in Lagna and 2nd house Jul 17-Sep 17. See if above periods overlap or run together and they will be your best of the best.
Romance/Marriage: Your 7th lord Saturn sees the 7th house from Cancer, meaning, ready to help build and bond toward long term relationship or marriage. If the 7th lord in your Navamsa chart also connects with the 7th house and is associated in the running dashas, wedding bells could be heard for miles. Let Venus and Mars crank up some passion too. Nov and Dec this year and especially Mar -Apr 24 , 05 and also Jun-Jul 05 when Venus comes to Lagna.
Family: Unless a weak or afflicted Moon [in Gemini-Leo, we should really count 45 degrees from natal Moon both ways] and a weak Saturn in Cancer with low ashtaka vargas etc, have the capacity to cause adverse effects of a Saturn Return or Sani Erastaka or Elara Sani, your partner can progress well in career and financial wealth. For the kids, the good periods of Mars given above fit. For father, Jupiter is fine and more importantly, erects a protective shield against Rahu who will be camping in the 9th house for 18 months from Feb 22, 05. However, note the MB /GD days of Rahu in Pisces [given in the introduction to this special report] and also when the Sun gets hooked in 8th house and on Rahu Ketu-Axis Oct 17- Nov 16, Feb 12- Apr 13, and in the 12th house Jun 15- July 16 which can cause challenges to his health and well being. For mother, Feb 22, 05- Mar 19, 05, May 30-Jun 24, 05 and Aug 13-Sep 7, 05 can be challenging. For siblings: Sep 25-Oct 31May 26-Jun 8 and Sep 18-Oct 3, 05 are good periods for prosperity. Feb 13-May 26 05, are challenging.
Health: As discussed in family above, a good handle on Saturn in Lagna is necessary. Both 7th and 8th houses that he owns, denote a bunch of stressful things. If a Saturn Return is rolling to boot [which occurs every 30 years] , you need to be real cool and conscious. For less evolved Cancer charts, Saturn in Lagna and Saturn-Jupiter connection [by aspect] can cause aggression that can get out of control if dashas and other factors are supportive.. These are also your 6/8 lords and when they connect [especially when they conjunct] a person can commit harmful deeds. Saturn is seen by Rahu [Feb 22, 05-Nov 8, 06] and when Mars connects with them Jun 4-Jul 19, 05 be more conscious and strive to be cool. Being cool will be a challenge Saturn will be posing in your Lagna anyway. Jan 5-29, 05 is a period that can cause hurt/ auto-accidents.


Career/Education: Jupiter from Virgo connects with your 10th house. When Venus, your 10th lord connects with Saturn [and if backed by dashas, ashtaka varga/directional strength and other factors] your career and public life will be significantly elevated, to dizzy heights. Note that Saturn also causes a Vipareetha Raja Yoga here [6th lord in the 12th ] and this indicates great glory in foreign lands, foreign assignments, foreign affairs, or in foreign corporations/ agencies operating in your own country. And if your Gaja Keshari Yoga/GKY is also rolling, imagine the glory. [For the GKY, your natal Moon has to be in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces or Gemini] If these requirements are fulfilled in Navamsa chart/D9 as well, this could be one of the best periods of your life. Here are the days when Venus your 10th lord connects with Saturn: Oct 24-Nov 17 [she is in debility here but as the 3rd lord she can also give raja yoga results] Jan 29-Feb 22, 05, Apr 12-May 6, 05, Jun 24-Jul 19, 05 and Aug 13-Oct 6, 05. Other good transits of Venus are: Nov 17-Mar 19, 05, May 6-30, 05 [best in the 10th house] July 19-Sep 7, 05 in Lagna and 2nd house.
Financial fortune: Jupiter as both 5th lord of fortune and 8th lord of unexpected gain is nice in Virgo, the 2nd house of financial resources, period. And don't forget your bank machine, Mercury , your 2/11 lord of $$$. Naturally, when Jupiter and Mercury connect, its all about financial fortune [if backed by dashas and other factors] Sep 25-Oct 12 Mercury is exalted in Virgo with Jupiter. Nov 24-Jan 26. 05 Mercury in the 5th Sagittarius in a mutual exchange of 2/5 house with Jupiter, very nice. Jan 26-Feb 13, 05 Mercury in the 6th [2nd leg of Artha/Money Trine] May 8-Jun 25, 05 in 9/10/11 houses, and Sep 2-Oct 6, 05 in Lagna and 2nd house. Next, your 9th lord of fortune Mars: Aug 17-Sep 17 in Lagna with the Sun very nice. Sep 17- Nov 2 in 2nd house with Jupiter [and with Mercury up to Oct 12] one of the best periods. Dec 17-Apr 24, 05 in 4/5/6 houses. July 19, 05- Feb 6, 06 in Aries your 9th house. Throw in your big guy, the Sun when he passes Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Aries , Taurus, Gemini and Leo
Romance/marriage: Saturn as the 7th lord may not be able to help much except for Jan 13- May 26, 05 when he returns to Gemini in retrogression. In fact, Saturn can cause strong challenges to harmony in relationships from the 12th house Cancer. Rahu to the 8th house Feb 22, 05 to Nov 8, 06 is another transit which can cause much stress and financial difficulties to partner. Therefore, check out your Navamsa chart or the D9, and the Moon Chart. If the 7th house and 7th lords are well placed, connected and backed by supportive dashas unfolding, those will be good for marriage. If a Saturn Return is also operative, the period ahead merits lots of cool and sensitivity to partner and consciousness in relationships.
Family: For parents, the good periods of Mars given above are nice for wealth, health and happiness. Mar 14 -Apr 14, Jul 17-Aug 17 and Sep 17- Nov 16 [Sun] and Jun 4-Jul 19, 05 [Mars] are periods that can cause challenges to health and well being of father. For mother: Mar 12-Apr 25, 05 for possible hurt, falls, accidents, Jun 4-Jul 19 health problems and tensions with mother. For kids: Jupiter in Virgo indicates progress and success. For siblings, note the good periods of Venus.
Health: Rahu to the 8th Pisces and Saturn to the 12th Cancer have to be handled consciously or with more awareness/Sathi, as they have the capacity to cause stress and health problems to you and your partner. These two transits occur every 18 [Rahu] and 30 [Saturn] years in a person's life. If the Ashtaka Varga [Sarva of Pisces] and Jupiter's individual contribution of donation are high, like 30+ and 5+, then Rahu's ill effects will be mitigated. Note Rahu's MB/GD periods from the Introduction [to this special report published on Aug 15]. Examine Ashtaka, Nakshatra and other factors for Saturn in Cancer. Finally evaluate the pros and cons of Saturn Return or Sani Erastaka if the Moon was sitting in the 3rd Drekkana [21-30 degrees] in Taurus- 1st Drekkana [0-10 degrees] in Virgo with low ashtaka and on hostile nakshtra etc, Saturn in Cancer can be challenging if the unfolding dashas are hostile.. 


Career/Education: If your natal Moon was sitting in Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini or Leo, Jupiter connects with the Moon or the 10th house from the Moon. If that requirement is fulfilled a significant raise in career can be expected when Saturn connects with Mercury who is also your 10th house lord. [Provided, of course, you have supportive dasas unfolding in your chart] These periods are Sep 25-Oct 12, Jan 26-Feb 13, 05, May 8-26,05, Jun 24-Sep 2, 05 and Sep 18-Oct 6, 05 From Lagna, Jupiter connects with 5/7 and 9th houses which is excellent. We have seen Mr. Bill Clinton winning the US presidency when Jupiter was in Lagna. He is Virgo too. Jupiter in Lagna fortifies the Kendras giving you more strength and benign power. He also sees the 7th house of public life. And if the Moon was sitting in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces or Gemini, Jupiter forms the Gaja Keshari Yoga with the Moon. Saturn to 11th Cancer is nice for fortune as he connects with Lagna and 5th house
Financial fortune: Jupiter to Lagna and Saturn to 11th are very nice for $$$. If the natal Moon was in Capricorn, there is a beautiful exchange of 5/11 houses by Moon and Saturn, again excellent for wealth if the AshtakaVargas/AV are strong and the two planets are unafflicted. Same with the Moon in Cancer and if the AV are strong and helped by good dasas the Saturn Return or the Erastaka can produce substantial wealth. The other best periods for wealth are when Mercury and Venus connect with Jupiter, plus when they transit 2/4/5 /11 houses. For Mercury these are: Sep 25-Oct 31, Nov 24-Feb 13, 05, Mar 1-May 8, 05, May 26-Sep 2,05 and Sep 18-Oct 25, 05. For Venus: Sep 1-28, Oct 24-Dec 12, Jan 5-Feb 22, 05, Mar 19-Apr 12, 05, May 6-July 19, 05 and Aug 8-Oct 3, 05. Look for the periods of Mercury and Venus that overlap. These are the best.
Romance/Marriage: Jupiter to Lagna also activates the 7th house of marriage/long term partnerships. As Saturn connects with Jupiter from Cancer, it is a good year for those seeking. Best if the 7th lord of your Navamsa Chart also connects with the 7th house, and in running dasas. Rahu who has been in the 8th house [worst for the financial well being of partner and also for your own health] moves to the 7th on Feb 22, 05 for 18 months. Rahu is tricky in the 7th house especially if aspected by Mars in natal charts and when Mars passes Lagna, 2/7/8and 12th houses. They can cause tensions/challenges to conjugal bliss. These periods are: Sep 17-Dec 17, Jun 4-Feb 6, 06. Note the Gandantha of Rahu and his Mrityu Bhaga/MB transits in Pisces, your 7th house. These are: Jan-Jun, 05, and May 25-Jun 7, 06. Rahu can also give long journeys and possible relationships with persons outside your cultural background.
Family: Challenges to partner are the days of Rahu and Mars given above. Jupiter will do overtime to tame the unruly Rahu. Jupiter in Lagna is generally good for partner's advancement as he sees 5,7,9 houses of shine in public life, fortune , and productive travel. It is also a good period for mother, for father and kids. For siblings: Dec 17-Apr 24,05 are the best. Apr 12-May 6, 05 can be stressful to father
Health: We have been discussing the Rahu in the 8th house for the past year: problems in the regenerative area, surgery, danger from toxins, diagnostic confusion etc. The downside of Saturn in 11th house Cancer [due to his ownership of the 6th house of hurt, disease, enmity] can also cause health challenges especially if a Saturn Return is activated with low ashtaka varga, with an afflicted Cancer [like having Rahu, Mars sitting there in natal charts] and supported by hostile dashas unfolding in the next 2 1/2 years. Watch Mars when he connects with Saturn especially from the 8th house Jul 19, 05- Feb 6, 06. And Mars in Lagna and 2nd house Sep 17- Dec 17, 04. Especially Sep 17-Nov 2 when Mars and Saturn connecting with Lagna can cause stress and consequently, anger and aggression.


Career/Education: Jupiter to the 12th house can give glory in foreign lands or with foreign sources/agencies operating in your own country. Saturn, the most helpful comes to the 10th house which is excellent. Jupiter does not connect with 10th house. Therefore, he has to connect with the natal Moon sitting in Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn or Pisces. If this requirement is fulfilled, the days when Saturn connects with the Moon are the best for your career and public life. That is when the Moon passes Aries, Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn. Check the weekly StarScope for Moon transits. The other good periods are Mercury's: Sep 17-Nov 24, Jan 26-Mar 1, 05, May 30-Oct 6, 05. For Venus: Sep 1-Oct 24, Nov 17-Jan 5, 05, Jan 29-May 6, 05. May 30-Aug 13, 05 and Sep 7-Oct 3, 05. Check out the periods that overlap. These are your best. Note also that Rahu in Pisces , your 6th house Feb 22, 05-Nov 06 can give success and prestige..
Financial fortune: If the 10th house Cancer is strong in Ashtaka Varga, like 30+ for Sarva Ashtaka, and Saturn and Moon having donated 4 points/bindus or above [higher the better] and Cancer is unafflicted [like having no links with Mars or Rahu] Saturn in Cancer will be cranking out a good amount of $$$. The other good periods are the ones given above for Mercury and Venus. Note also the Sun's: Jun 15-Sep 17, Nov 16- Dec 15 and Feb 12- Mar 14. These are approximately same for every year. And of course, when the Moon passes Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius. As always, the overlapping periods of the above planets are your best.
Romance /Marriage: Rahu who has been causing mischief [and even havoc in extreme cases] first in your 8th house [Feb , 02-Aug , 03] a period especially unfavourable for partner, and thereafter in your 7th house of marriage is finally moving out around Feb 22, 05. Yet, note his GD, MB days from Virgo above and be very cool and conscious. Although Saturn aspects the 7th house which is nice, the best periods for bonding relationships come after Rahu moves out of the 7th. Mars is your 7th lord, and when he comes to Lagna Nov 2-Dec 17, when he gets exalted Mar 12-Apr 24, 05 and when he is in the 5th house of passion Apr 24-Jun 4, 05 and finally in the 7th house itself Jul 19, 05- Feb 6, 06 are the best periods
Family: For partner: Nov 2-Dec 17 and Mar 12-Jun 4, 05 and after Jul 19, 05 are nice. The bad days are: Sep 17-Nov 2, Dec 17-Jan 29, 05 and especially Jun 4- Jul 19, 05 when hooked with Rahu in the 6th house. For mother, a Saturn Return or Erastaka with a weak Saturn and Cancer can challenge her health and well being. Conversely a strong Saturn, Moon and Cancer can usher significant prosperity and fortune. For father, the good periods of Mercury and the Sun given above are nice. For children Saturn in the 10th is nice unless weak in Ashtaka, which can cause hurt and accidents especially when Mars connects as for the partner. Watch Mar 19-May 8, 05 which can cause hurt to kids. For siblings a fair year ahead.
Health: Rahu to the 6th gives good health unless afflicted. Note his MB/GD days for possible GI/Colon/digestive problems, and Mar 19-May 8, 05 for possible health problems: skin, feet, eyes and sleep problems. Jun 4-- Jul 19, 05 is another which can cause hurt, cuts, injury from weapons. That is Mars on Rahu in the 6th house and note also Mars' MB and GD: Jun 12-14, 05 and Jul 13- 19, 05 and thru to Jul 25.

SCORPIO:    Career/Education: Both Jupiter and Saturn transits to 11th and 9th houses are great. Jupiter was in the 10th house during the past 12 months serving to raise you up. Will continue to do so if the natal Moon was sitting in Aries, Taurus or Sagittarius. If you had Sagittarius Moon you will experience the power and expansion of the Gaja Keshari Yoga additionally. The GKY will roll if your Moon was in Virgo, Pisces and Gemini as well. Saturn will play a key role in honing your writing and cognitive skills as he sees his own 3rd house from the 9th house. Glory in job related journeys, deputations etc. Saturn and Jupiter are your 4/5 [kendra and trikona owners who cause raja yoga] house lords. From the 9th house of fortune, higher side of the mind and benign power Saturn connects with the 5th lord [fortune, high status] Jupiter who is in the 11th house of abundance/achievement, and connects with his 5th house Pisces. All very nice. What you need is Saturn and Jupiter to connect with the Sun, your 10th lord of success in career/public life. And of course, supportive running dasas and strong ashtaka vargas. Note the periods when the Sun connects with Saturn. [ For better results the Moon-Jupiter connection has to be present though]. Thru to Sep 17 the Sun in Leo, his own 10th house. Sep 17-Oct 17 and Jan 14-Feb 13, 05 [connects with both Saturn and Jupiter, excellent] Apr 14-May 14, 05, Jul 17-Aug 17, 05 and Sep 17- Oct 17, 05. Other good periods are: Nov 16-Jan 14, 05 in Lagna and 2nd house, Feb 12-Apr 14 in 4/5 houses and May 14- Jun 15, 05 in 7th house
Financial fortune: A major Dhana Yoga/$$$ is when 5/11 lords connect in their own houses with the Moon- your 9th lord of fortune. Jupiter to the 11th [this happens every 12 years, mind you] is excellent for the whole year ahead. Mercury gets exalted here Sep 25-Oct 12. Note the Moon transits from my weekly StarScope. Even Mercury's debility [esp if AshtakaVarga in Pisces are high] in 5th [Mar 1-May 8,05] is nice for unexpected wealth/gain as he is also your 8th lord-Vipareetha Raja Yoga here. Mercury's 9th house [with Saturn] Jun 25-Sep 2, 05 is excellent especially, the days when the Moon will be in Virgo [with Jupiter] and causes a mutual exchange of 9/11 houses with Mercury. This certainly looks best. Finally, you got Mercury with Jupiter Sep 18-Oct 6, 05. Very nice again especially when the Moon connects with them. Note also Mars in Lagna Dec 17-Jan 29,05 and in the 5th house Jun 4-Jul 19, 05.
Romance/Marriage: For romance/passion Jupiter is the guy, 5th lord [of passion] in the 11th house [3rd leg of the Kama Trine] As for marriage thru to Sep 28, Oct 24-Nov 17, Dec 12- Jan 5, 05, are fine. Mar 19-Apr 4, 05 Venus is exalted in the 5th house which is nice but watch Rahu there who can cause wild passion if not careful especially when Moon gets there too. Jupiter from Virgo will will try best to protect you. May 6- 30,05 looks best. Also Jan 29-Feb 21, 05
Family: For partner, Jupiter in Virgo helps in the 12 months ahead. The good days mentioned above for marriage are also good for partner's progress. Additionally for wealth: Jan 5-29, 05, Feb 22-Apr 12, 05 and Jun 24-Sep 7, 05. Note the challenging periods for partner and for the relationship. These are: Nov 17-Dec 12, Mar 19-Apr 12, 05 the downside here is Rahu's ability to arouse deep cravings, including addictions, by darkening the rational mind to some extent. As a result the period Apr 12-May 6, 05 could be stressful if other factors like a Saturn Return or hostile dasas unfold. The period May 30-Jun 24, 05 can challenge the financial resources of partner and also conjugal bliss. For father, Sun's good periods given above are nice.. Watch Mar 14- Apr 13 and Jun 15-Jul 17 for possible health challenges. For mother, a nice year unless Saturn and Moon afflicted in individual charts. For siblings too, a good year and beyond [some will find good fortune overseas and thru journeys] except for Jan 13-May 26, 05 which can cause tensions with them and health problems to them. For kids, Rahu in the 5th house [Feb 22, 05 -Nov 8, 06 True Nodes here] merits more sensitivity and loving care. Problems/difficulty in child births too. Watch your health [both mind and body] Oct 31-Jan 5, 05 and Mar 1-May 8, 05


Career/education: Big Guy Lagna Lord Jupiter to the 10th house Virgo is excellent, but Saturn to Cancer your 8th house is so- so. For research and investigative work, Saturn can be very helpful here. But if he has donated a few Bindus [less than 4] or the Sarva Ashtaka for Cancers is less than 28, and if the natal Moon was similarly weak and afflicted [by nodes and Mars] in Aries or Gemini-Leo and if supported by unfolding hostile dasas, the ill effects of Saturn Return/Sani Erastaka could be experienced [No, I am not trying to peddle the fear factor here, like the US republicans did best at their last week's party convention] Meaning: it may cause sudden changes, breaks, fall from grace, sickness, loss of wealth, separation from dear ones etc. We will come back to this later. Jupiter to the 10th house or the highest point in your chart, strengthens or stabilizes the kendras/quadrants. Which is nice. A strong Lagna Lord is a must for good health and fortune. Jupiter will also erect a protective shield against Rahu who will be in Pisces, your 4th house [mother, home, vehicles, property, learning, inner joy] Yet Rahu aspects Saturn [after May 26, 05] which can cause stress/frustration. Note that Saturn will be back in Gemini Jan 13-May 26, 05 which is better for career and public life. Anyways, Jupiter is great in the 10th house Virgo for career and if the natal Moon was in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces or Gemini you will also have the Gaja Keshari Yoga rolling. Note the good transits of 10th lord Mercury for the best days. Sep 25-Oct 31, Nov 24- Feb 13, 05, May 8-26, 05, Jun 8-24, 05 and Sep 2-Oct 6, 05
Financial fortune: Jupiter, Venus. Mercury, Mars and Sun are the major players here. Jupiter in the 10th is very nice for overall fortune. Note overlaps of the following periods. They are your best. Venus: Sep 28-Oct 24, Oct 24-Nov 17 [very nice in debility!] Nov 17- Dec 12, Jan 5-Feb 22, 05, Mar 19-Apr 12, 05 [excellent exalted] Apr 12-May 6, 05, Jul 19-Oct 10, 05. Mercury: Sep 25-Oct 12 [exalted] Oct 12-31, Nov 24-Jan 26, 05 [graceful exchange of 1/10 houses with Jupiter] Jan 26-Feb 13, 05 May 8-26, 05, Jun 8-25, 05, and Sep 2-Oct 25, 05. Mars: Sep 17-Dec 17, Jan 29-Mar 12, 05, Mar 12-Apr 24, 05 [exalted in 2nd house] July 19-Feb 6, 06 in the 5th house. The Sun: Aug 17-Oct 17, Dec 15-Feb 12, Mar 14-Apr 14, Apr14-May14 [exalted in 5th house]. These periods are approximately same for every year. 
Romance/marriage: For romance: Nov 2-Dec 17, Mar 12-Apr 24, 05 and July 19, 05 thru to end 05. For marriage: Sep 25- Oct 31, Nov 24-Jan 26, 05, May 8-26, 05, Jun 8-Jun 24, 05 and Sep 2-Oct 25, 05. Check also your navamsa chart to see if the 7th lord there connects with the 7th house and also in running dasas, for marriage or long term relationships. Challenges to partnerships: Oct 31- Nov 24, Mar 1-May 8, 05 and Jun 24-Sep 2, 05
Family: Good and bad periods given above and for Mercury, are for your partner. For mother: a good year ahead. Rahu comes to 4th house on Feb 22, 05 and is tamed to a great extent by Jupiter from Virgo. But note when Moon passes Rahu from my weekly column, and also Jun 4-Jul 19, 05 for stress. Note also MB/GD transits of Rahu, Mars in Pisces. These were given in the introduction of this special report, and for Libra. For father: the periods of Sun given for financial fortune are nice. Note Oct 17-Dec 15, May 14-Jun 15 and Jul 17-Aug 17 for stress and health problems. For kids: Period after Feb 22, 05 is clearly better as Rahu moves out of the 5th house and also Saturn's aspect from 8th house. Dec 17-Jan 29, 05 and Jun 4-Jul 19, 05 can cause hurt to kids if other factors are supportive. For siblings: Not a good period when Saturn is in 8th house except for Jan 13-May 26, 05 when he returns to Gemini in retrogression. 
Health: Saturn to 8th [this occurs every 30 years approximately] is generally associated with stress especially, if weak and afflicted as shown above for career. True, Jupiter is in the 10th but Jupiter has to tame Rahu in 4th house as well. And Rahu too aspects Saturn after May 26, 05 thru to Nov 1, 06. Note also periods when Mars joins Rahu: Jun 4-Jul 19, 05 and also Venus Mar 19-Apr 12, 05. She is exalted here but there is Rahu, and when Moon passes them, be very conscious when you drive/travel. To sum up: Sure, Jupiter can serve to raise you up in career /public life. But Saturn, Rahu and Mars and Moon urge you to be very health and safety conscious as well, period.


Career/Education: Jupiter [your 3/12 house lord] is now in Virgo your 9th house. Overall, he gives many journeys, success in writing, publishing, sales and marketing, significant spiritual expansion thru good guidance by gurus, success thru sweat and luck both. Saturn to the 7th house Cancer can add financial success also thru spiritual journeys, in overseas or foreign sources and thru partner. Jupiter kick-starts a fine 3- year term [as he passes your 9-11 houses] and if your natal Moon was sitting in Virgo, Capricorn. Pisces or Taurus, plus supported by current dasas and other factors, expect a significant raise /shine in your career. If the Moon was in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces or Gemini you will also have the Gaja Keshari /GKY rolling. So the best periods for this domain are when Venus [your yogakaraka 5/10 lord] is favourably associated: Oct 24-Jan 5, 05. Jan 29-May 30, 05 [Mar 19-Apr 12 exalted] May 26-Jul 19, 05 conjunct Saturn, and Sep 18-Oct 30, 05. The challenges to career are: Sep 28-Oct 24, Jan 5-29, 05 and Jul 19-Aug 13, 05 
Financial fortune: Venus, Mercury, Saturn and Mars are the players here. Note their best periods and those that overlap or run together. Both Jupiter and Saturn's current transits also helpful. So is Rahu-Ketu along 3/9 axis after Feb 22, 05. Venus: Oct 24-Jan 5, 05. Jan 29-May 30, 05 and again, Aug 13-Oct 30, 05. Mercury: Sep 25- Oct 12 best, Oct 12-Nov 24, Jan 26- Mar 1, 05, May 8-Jun 25, 05 and Sep 18, Jan 3, 06. Mars: Sep 17-Jan 29, 05. Mar 12-Jun 4, 05 and Jul 19-Apr 4, 06 .
Romance/marriage: Saturn in the 7th is particularly helpful plus Jupiter if has connected with the Moon in natal charts. Check out your Navamsa chart to see if the 7th lord there connects with the 7th house and also in running dasas. Best to build and bond heart connections are: Sep 1-28, O ct24-Jan 5, 05. Jan 29-Feb 22, 05. Mar 19-May 30, 05. Jun 24-Jul 19, 05 best and Aug 13,Oct 30, 05. Your 7th lord is the Moon. Her good days will be found in my weekly columns.
Family: For partner: The good periods above in romance and and marriage fit. Sep 28-Oct 24, Jan 29-Jun 4, 05 can challenge conjugal bliss. For mother: The Moon's good days and also' Mars good periods given above are nice. The period thru to Sep 17, Jan 29-Mar 12, 05, and Jun 4-Jul 19, 05 can cause health challenges. For father: Nov 24-Feb 13, and Mar 3-May 8, 05 can cause stress. For kids: Venus' good periods given above are excellent. Jupiter in the 9th Virgo is fine. Note these for hurt and sickness: Sep 28-Oct 24, Jan 5-29, 05, May 30-Jun 24, 05, Jul 19-Aug 13, 05.Kids in teens can be troubled by passion, cravings, addictions Mar 19-Apr 12, 05 if other factors are supportive in charts. For siblings: Jupiter in Virgo and good periods of Mars given above are very nice
Health: Unless afflicted with a mean Saturn Return/Erastaka and hostile dasas, the next 30 months give lots of good energy. Rahu to the 3rd after Feb 22, 05 is great for prowess and physical health and success, except when he hits GD, MB etc which are: Jan-Jun 05, and May 25,06-Jun 7, 06. For hurt, accidents and sickness: thru to Sep 25, Oct 31-Mar 12, 05, May 8-Jun 8, 05 and Sep 2-18, 05. The period Jan 13-May 26, 05 can cause the downside indications given for 6th house Saturn in Aquarius below. For aggression note the periods Oct 16-Dec 15 and Mar 14-Apr 14, 05.


 Career/Education: Jupiter is now in your 8th house, excellent for spiritual expansion, research, money thru inheritances, insurance policies, healthcare, nutrition, therapy , healing, detective work etc. And Lagna Lord Saturn in the 6th house, nice for energy needed to be competitive. From the 8th, Jupiter does not connect with the 10th house, therefore, you need to have natal Moon in Virgo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Pisces, Aries, Taurus or Gemini, to enable Jupiter to raise you up, in the coming year [supported by dasas and ashtakavargas etc] If that condition is fulfilled, note the days when Saturn favourably connects with the 10th lord Mars, your best days. I said favourably because , From Sep 17 to Nov 2, Mars is in the 8th house. Here, Mars is excellent for research and healing work but as the downside, can cause lack of self -promotion, scandals at work, lack of recognition. The next period Mar 12-Apr 24, 05 Mars gets exalted in the 12th house. This helps to land new job offers including overseas or with foreign companies. Jul 19th to end of 2005 [really until Feb 6,06] Mars will be in Aries, your 3rd house which is excellent for success. The other good periods are. In 9/10/11 houses Nov 2-Mar 12, 05. Especially Nov 17-Dec 12 when Venus Joins Mars in the 9th house. This is excellent for they are your 9/10 or the most helpful Dharma/Karma lords who boost your fortune and career and they meet again in the 10th house Dec 17-Jan 5, 05. If the natal Moon was sitting in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, you will also be blessed by Jupiter/Moon's Gaja Keshari Yoga
Financial fortune: Two nice periods are when Mercury is in the 5th house of luck and fortune Gemini and when Mercury and Venus [5/9 lords] are in 9/11 houses. When Mercury gets exalted in Virgo, your 8th house Sep 25-Oct 12, and conjunct the 11th [major gain] lord Jupiter and if supported by dasas and other factors , some Aquarians can likely get big money, lotteries, gifts, inheritances, insurance claims. Mercury passes 9-11 houses Oct 12-Jan 26, 05. In Lagna Feb 13-Mar 1, 05. When he gets neecha /debilitated Mar 19-May 8, 05 he still can give you unexpected wealth but watch his MB, GD from the weekly StarScope for hurt and sickness. Mercury will be in 4/5 houses May 6-Jun 25, 05 fine for $$$. Now note Venus's good periods: In 9-11 houses Nov 17-Jan 29, 05. In Lagna Feb 22-Mar 19, 05. Exalted in the 2nd house of $$$ Mar 19-Apr 12, 05 and in 4/5 houses: May 6-Jun 24, 05. Saturn will also be back in the 5th house of fortune Jan 13- May 26, 05
Romance/marriage: Nov 16-Jan 14, 05 , Apr 14- Jul 17 , 05 seems the best bonding long term relationships. For female charts, the year up to Sep 28, 05 not great , especially when Rahu and Ketu switch to 2/8 axis on Feb 22, 05. With Jupiter also hooked in the 8th house, much cool is needed in this domain. The period thru to Nov 16 also not great for relationships as well as business partnerships. Check your navamsa chart to see how its 7th lord is doing. When he connects with your 7th house will be nice for marriage. 
Family: The good periods above for marriage are also good for partner. The challenging periods are thru to Nov 16, Mar 14- Apr 14, 05 and Sep 17-Nov 16, 05. For kids: Note Mercury's good and bad periods. Jupiter in the 8th house not great. Meaning: stress to kids and . Requires more cool from you. For mother: the good periods of Venus fit. Jan 26-Feb 22, 05 and Jun 24- July 19, 05 for health problems and stress. For father: The good periods of the Sun and Venus are nice. The bad periods for mother affects father too , plus the period thru to Nov 16 and Mar 14- Apr 14. Siblings: the good and bead periods of Mars given above fit. For family in general, the period thru to end of November in particular merits more sensitivity and consciousness
Health: If the Saturn Return or the Sani Erastaka especially with low astakavargas of Moon and Saturn, and Gemini - Leo signs [your 5-7 houses] supported by hostile dasas, can cause sickness, hurt , losses in litigations/conflicts and trouble from enemies. Except for Jan 13- May 26, 05 Lagna Lord Saturn will be in the 6th house thru to Nov 2006. The downside here is the adverse indications given above for the Erastaka plus aggression, digestive problems and from inflammatory diseases, feet and sleep problems. Those taking 'tranquilizers'/anti=depressants etc have to be extra careful as you may be tempted overdose in order to calm down. With a loaded 8th house and Jupiter hooked on the Rahu-Ketu Axis in itself is bad medicine. Note Oct 24- Nov 17 and especially Jun 24- Jul 19, 05 for possible hurt /accidents.


Career/Education: Lagna Lord who is also the 10th is excellent in Virgo, the 7th house for shine in public life, people skills, productive job related travel, deputations, diplomacy and also significant support from partner. So, if your natal Moon was in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aries or Taurus, and if supported by Dashas and other factors mention in this report, you will have significant success, achievement and recognition in your career. If the Moon was in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces you will also have the additional benefits [power and expansion] of the Gaja Keshari Yoga. Except for Jan 13-May 26, 05, Saturn will be connecting with the 10th lord Jupiter, thus fulfilling a vital requirement for success. Saturn in the 5th house is also nice for stability in fortune and learning. The other good transits for career are: [Mercury] Sep 25-Oct 12, Oct 31-Feb 13, 05, May 8-Sep 2, 05 and Sep 18-Oct 6, 05 [Mars] Sep 17-Nov 2, Dec 17-Apr 24, 05 and Jun 4, 05-Feb 6, 06. Also, of course, Jupiter thru to Sep 28, 05
Financial fortune: An interesting [call it strange, if you will] Dhana Yoga is the 3/8 lord Venus in the 11th Capricorn with Moon in 5th Cancer [Note also that Venus gets exalted in Pisces]. Venus will be in Capricorn Jan 29- Feb 22, 05 and for Moon in Cancer, please check out the weekly starscope. Venus' 8th house ownership may bring unexpected gain too. A second Yoga involves the three natural benefics- Jupiter, Venus and Mercury and their association: Along these lines note Mercury's Sep 25- Oct 12, Nov 24-Feb 13, 05, Mar 1-May 8, 05.

The Jyotisha classics have given Saturn only 3 [out of 12] benefic transits from the natal Moon namely, in the 3rd, 6th and 11th houses: all yielding financial gain. Another theory is called Moorti-Nirnaya which works out the longitude of the Moon [from the Lagna, some say from natal or birth Moon] at the exact time when Saturn enters a sign. Here the 12 signs are divided into 4 groups: Gold, Silver, Copper and Iron. Good results are given when the Moon is in Silver [2,5,9, houses] and Copper [3,7,10 houses] As KN Rao comments in his 1999 book "Saadhe Saati: a balanced view" [The title refers to the 7 1/2 year transit of the Sani Ersataka, or Saturn over natal Moon, and the house or sign on both sides of the Moon] " It is also controversial as different texts give different methods of Moorti-Nirnaya with different results. In view of these prevalent theories which makes 75 % of Saturn's transit miserable for all but gets modified for six rashis [silver and copper parts] the inevitable conclusion still is that for half of humanity , Saturn's transit must always be miserable. Is it correct or should it be examined on individual horoscopes to arrive at a more balanced conclusion?" Obviously Mr. Rao advocates the latter and goes on to lay the parameters to be tested. Among others, they are: 1. Examine the current Dasha results first [maha dasa, antar and pratyantar] 2. Examine transit of Saturn on Sarva Astaka Varga /SAV of the sign [and also Saturn's individual donation Binna Ashtaka Varga, and also the Kakshyas/sectors of a sign] 3. Saadhe Sathi/SS begins when Saturn is 45 degrees behind the birth Moon and, ends when he has traveled [forward] 45 degrees from the Moon. 4. The centre of the SS is when Saturn is within 5 degree orb from the Moon. Check to see if anything special /significant happen to the native. 5 Also when Saturn conjuncts the Moon. That is when both are on the same degree

The synthesis of all these factors will indicate the results to be expected of a SS, and also proactive measures. It is true that SS was fatal to Mahatma Gandhi or Gunadasa Kapuge but Nehru became the first PM of India during his 3rd SS and, Indira Gandhi also became a Cabinet Minister despite losing her husband and father during her 2nd SS. 

The SS is perceived from the natural signification of Saturn as representing sorrow, misery and death and the Moon: the mind . When the Moon is afflicted [by Saturn and also by the Nodes] it shows stress, personality disorders, emotional disturbances, hallucinations, psychological turbulence, lunacy, severe imbalance or disruption of the astral body. 'As a very sensitive and mutable planet, the Moon can be easily influenced and overcome by other planetary energies.' 

But Saturn is also the 10th lord [karma/deeds] of the Kala Purusha or the Cosmic Man. Like I have been trying to explain since 1999 in this column, for anything significant [good or bad] to happen we need the participation of Saturn and Jupiter, with the Moon as the pivotal point, as always.
Let's have a quick look at Gunadasa Kapuge's death on Apr 3, 2003. 

A Virgo person, Kapuge's SS began when Saturn entered the 26th degree in Taurus because his natal Moon was 11:03 degrees in Cancer. By Apr 3 Saturn was 29:40 in Taurus having covered 3:40 degrees and getting closer to the Moon. The dasha unfolding was Sun-Venus-Saturn. Maha Dasa Lord Sun was the 12th lord [final exit from this world ] and also the 22nd Drekkana Lord, who generally has a role in death.

In Navamsa/D9 chart the Sun was the 3rd lord in the 8th house [longevity or lack of it] . The Venus downside was she owned the 2nd house [death dealing] in Janma Kundali/D1 chart but was the 11th lord [accidents/sickness] from the Moon and was in the 12h house with Saturn the 7/8 lord from the Moon. There were many other hostile transits and combinations which clearly show up on the chart raised for Apr 3, 03. Especially, how the Kakshayas in Ashtaka Varga were switched off on that day.
