Special Transits of Saturn
Transits of Saturn – The planet Saturn stays in a zodiac sign for an average of two and a half years. The actual period may vary as it stays longer in a sign when it gets retrograde.
Saturn is considered a natural malefic planet, but it can be a benefice also as per a specific horoscope. The transits of Saturn through the 4th and 8th houses as counted from the natal Moon are termed as “Dhaiya”(meaning two and a half years)and those in 12th, 1st and 2nd houses as counted from the natal Moon are called “SadeSatti”(meaning seven and a half years).
How a Dhaiya or SadeSatti will effect a native depends upon the Moon sign of the native’s chart.
Saturn entered the Libra sign on 4th August 2012 and it will stay there during 2013 to 2014.
Saturn will become retrograde from 18th February 2013 to 7th July 2013 and then become normal afterward. It will again become retrograde in the Libra sign from 3rd March 2014.
It is believed that when a malefic planet like Saturn becomes retrograde it becomes more malefic.
If Saturn is unfavorable in a chart then during its special transits as explained above the native may face troubles, sorrows, delays and mental and physical problems.
The general results of Dhaiya and SadeSatti from start of 2013 till March 2014 are as follows:
Dhaiya Results: Those having Cancer and Pisces as their Moon sign may face ill effects.
SadeSatti Results: Those having Virgo, Libra and Scorpio as their Moon signs will experience mixed results.
