Yet another joint impact which is going to affect us in coming times is Saturn-Ketu joint impact. Saturn will be in Capricorn/Aquarius during 2022-23 and with Ketu moving in Libra in Mar, 2022, Saturn-Ketu both will impact either Libra or Aquarius signs. So, let’s have a look at how this transit is going to impact Human Life on Earth on the basis of following points –
Transit Period – As we know that Ketu will move into Libra in Mar, 2022 and will stay there till Sp, 2023 - https://www.astrosaxena.com/KetuTrLibra202223 . During this whole time, Saturn will shuffle between Capricorn/Aquarius - https://www.astrosaxena.com/SatTrAqua2223 and https://www.astrosaxena.com/sat20. From their respective positions, they both will aspect houses where Libra and Aquarius signs fall in your chart. It will be as follows -
Ketu in Libra and Satun in Capricorn would mean that both will impact Libra sign, as Saturn aspects Libra with 10th aspect.
Ketu in Libra and Saturn in Aquarius would mean that both will impact Aquarius sign, as Ketu aspects Aquarius with 5th aspect.
So, their impact is going to remain for 18 months on these two signs.
Importance of Joint Impact of planets – During transit, whenever 2 or more planets of slower transit speed join in one house/sign or they aspect particular house, they make us focus at things related to that sign or house and make us fix those issues. Especially when malefic planets are impacting together for such a long time, they bring intensity, stress and hard work in those areas of life as this is what they are known for.
Now, Saturn-Ketu & their impact together.
Saturn - Saturn is all that which we don't like in our life. Saturn is Delay, Frustration, Restriction, Limitation and Anxiety. It is Hard-work and Labour. It is people of Authority, like Boss at your work place or Father at home. Saturn is Master and Servant both (depends on who uses Saturn in what way). Saturn is our Karmic Debt from life. Saturn is the things we didn't treat too well in our past life. Saturn is our challenges and biggest lessons of life. Saturn is Old-age, Teeth in human body, Diseases, Transformation etc. Saturn is Discipline, Organisation, Structure, Government, Law & Order etc.
Ketu – Ketu represents Isolation, Separation, Spirituality, Mystical World, Other Dimension means things related to Alien World. It also represents Son, Dog, Intuition, Research Ability, Curious Nature, things which we have already achieved in past life and not much concerned to perform in this life.
Saturn represents limitations, restrictions, frustration, hard work, delay and perseverance. Ketu represents isolation and separation. So, end result of both planets impacting house/sign together can obviously be not of providing something. It only shows that these planets are coming to restrict, delay, separate and re-build the things related with the house/sign they are impacting. So first of all, we must break the illusion that they are going to provide anything in this 18 months’ time.
At the same time, we have to remember that these restrictive/separative/destructive tendencies of Saturn-Ketu will be towards Jeeva Karakas, i.e. People, whereas we can still expect results of Ajeeva Karakas of the same house. But even those results of Ajeeva Karakas can only be achieved after immense, hard work, delay and perseverance. So even there, things may not be easy to achieve.

Saturn represents focus & Ketu represents research work. So, this conjunction is going to immensely help us in any kind of research, educational pursuits and investigating the hidden knowledge or information. We will have focus on these things.
As Saturn-Ketu represent occult and mystical side of life, higher education related with occult, mystical and hidden subject will receive further intensity and focus.
Now, the two signs involved –
Libra - Libra is the 7th
sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the energy and things related with 7th
house of horoscope, i.e. market place, business, partnerships, relations etc.
Basically Libra is sign of relationships. Libra is consisted of another 2 and
half Nakshatra named Chitra, Swati and Vishakha. Libra's lord is Venus.
Aquarius - Aquarius is 11th sign of zodiac belt, hence it signifies the things and energy related with 11th house of horoscope, such as Gains, Desires, Hopes and Wishes, Large Organisations, Network Circles etc. Besides this, Aquarius also represents Scientific Thinking & Research, Uplifting the Society, Higher Goals & Rewards for all. Aquarius is made of another set of 2 and half Nakshatra, i.e. Dhanishtha, Satabhisha and Purva-Bhadrapada. Aquarius Lord is Saturn & Rahu.
As discussed above, it would be easier to achieve non-living significations related to houses where these two signs fall in chart rather than living significances.
Planets’ Natal Position – We can see Saturn-Ketu’s natal position in birth chart but as their nature and results remain as is & they remain non-providers, their dignity is not going to make much change in their joint impact.
Dasha – As always, someone going through Saturn dasha or Ketu Dasha will feel the full impact of transit. Others will also see the results as transit duration of 18 months is long enough to impact the human life.
Age of Individual – Results of malefic planets largely depend on the age of person as they become mild after attaining maturity age. Anyone above 35 or in 40s can still have mild impact of this transit. It is largely because they are used to such results in life.
Planets in Libra & Aquarius – Also, if you are born with planets in Libra & Aquarius, you will see results of those planets too as Saturn-Ketu aspect them. So, the person may feel stress, limitations and changes related to things of that planet in life.
Planets Transiting through Libra & Aquarius – During the same time, other planets like Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars will transit through Libra & Aquarius in due course. Everything is in addition in astrology, hence we’re going to get the result of all these planets.
Again, the occurrence of event is based on chart + dasha + transit. Event should be 1st promised by the birth chart, then you should be under dasha which allows the event and then transits can bring the event. As we are looking at last step, it can’t be taken as final word on events to take place but we can get an indication where our focus, hard work and separation will be in these 18 months.
Now, we can see their impact ascendant-wise but as the signs getting impacted are Air Signs, they will be activating a specific triangle in every chart, i.e. either Dharma or Artha or Kama or Moksha Triangle. So, if I describe it ascendant-wise, same things will be repeated for 3 ascendants as it will activate identical houses for those 3 ascendants. So, I chose to describe it element wise, i.e. Fire Signs as Ascendant, Earth Sign as Ascendant, Air Signs as Ascendant and Water Signs as Ascendant. So, here we go –
Please see results of this transit from Ascendant and Moon Sign both. Predictions from Ascendant Sign will show what will actually happen and predictions from Moon Sign will show what our mind desires and how mind will react to such events. Another thing is that when Ascendant and Moon sign both point towards one event that event is more prominent to happen.
Fire Signs as Ascendant or Moon Sign – For Aries, Leo and Sagittarius Ascendant or Moon Sign, Libra and Aquarius Signs fall in 3rd house, 7th house and 11th house. This is Kama Triangle, i.e. the triangle of desires. They can be working really hard on their desires in this time or they can be required to do the same. There can find difficult to be in relationship or sustaining it. They would have to do whatever possible to manifest their desires. This time can also push them to start their own business as all houses involved are related to business. They can be inclined towards gaining knowledge or doing research related to business. They would need to work really hard to make their money. For Aries & Sagittarius people, this joint impact can bring relocation. This can be good time to learn how to do business & how to connect with people through business. Very less result in desires related with relationship.
Earth Signs as Ascendant or Moon Sign – For Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn Ascendant or Moon Sign, Air Signs fall in 2nd house, 6th house and 10th house. This is Artha Triangle. Artha can be termed as Money oriented triangle but more meaningful translation of Artha is Purpose. These are the houses of our purpose in life for which we are here. As normally we understand that to earn Money is our purpose, these houses became Money or Career oriented houses but they should be seen as houses of purpose. So, Saturn-Ketu joint impact on these houses will make them work hard on Career or Wealth Oriented. They would have to find new ways of saving wealth else this time can limit their resources. That will become a focus point for next 18 months. They can have some health issues to due to involvement of 6th house or they can be involved in some disputes or conflicts in this time. So, they must try their best to avoid any such situation. This can be good time to work hard in career matters but need to be careful with money matters.
Air Signs as Ascendant or Moon Sign – For Gemini, Libra and Aquarius Ascendant or Moon Sign, Air Signs fall in 1st house, 5th house and 9th house. This is Dharma Triangle. Dharma Triangle means the triangle of righteous life path. So, these people will be inclined to find their righteous life path. As 1st house is getting involved, their life path can take a major change in these months. They will be education oriented as 5th house and 9th house are all about education but success in education will require immense hard work & perseverance. Their education can again involve lots of research. They can change their current career or job. Spiritual Practices or Occult Knowledge can make them aware of their true life path which they are here to follow. A Guru can come into life who can be a very strict one.
Water Signs as Ascendant or Moon Sign – For Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces Ascendant or Moon Sign, Air Signs fall in 4th house, 8th house and 12th house. This can be the time of going within and perform Meditation and other spiritual practices as this is Moksha Triangle, i.e. triangle of liberation. They can find themselves highly emotional & feel that others are not reciprocating their emotions. They can be very interested in digging deep into occult or hidden world and research as much as they can. They can be inclined towards spiritual activities too. They can be travelling to foreign lands or any spiritual places. They can come into contact of some spiritual or occult Guru but that person can be very strict or disciplinary. Other significances of Moksha Triangle like home, real estate matters, illness to mother, bed pleasures, foreign companies or foreign people can also be seen as result but as Saturn-Ketu combination is restrictive one, they would have to work really hard to achieve these things and actually there can be lots of stress related with these houses during next 18 months. Best way to utilize this transit is by putting best efforts in spirituality. Their focus should be more on performing spiritual pursuits or collecting spiritual/occult knowledge. They can go away from home land.
Conclusion – All the other common things related with houses getting Saturn-Ketu joint impact will see restriction & limitations. But main theme would be on putting best efforts over longest period of time in these matters to get results.
Hope this helps. Thanks,
