Rahu-Saturn JI on Scorpio sign during 2023-25

We are starting an interesting phase of transits where one after the other, many major planets will be impacting Scorpio sign in transits over next 1.5 years. This will make Scorpio sign very important for next about one and half year. In this article, we will try to see the impact of Rahu and Saturn on Scorpio sign. In May-2024, we will also have another article where we will see Jupiter’s impact on Scorpio.

Transit Period – As we know that Rahu will move into Pisces on Oct, 2023 and will stay there till May, 2025. Saturn will be in Aquarius from Jan, 2023 to May, 2025. So, the joint impact of Rahu-Saturn will remain for about 1.5 years on Scorpio sign, which is a potential time window to predict events.

Now, Rahu, Saturn and their joint impact.

Rahu - Rahu represents illusion, foreign lands, foreign things, Drugs, Medicines, any type of intoxication, fame, wealth, success, obsession, past-life left-over karma, movies, television, online world, cheating, imagined fears, unusual things, unique things, creativity, rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of proportions. During transit, Rahu is basically that obsessive energy which makes us gravitate towards the things related to house/sign where Rahu is transiting in next 18 months.

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.

Scorpio - Scorpio is the 8th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things and energy related with 8th house of horoscope like Sudden Events, Secrecy, Dark World, Occult Science, Research, Inheritance, Serving Others, Taxes etc. Besides these things sign of Scorpio also represent transformation, means changing the whole nature upside down. This is one sign which is favorite of every Astrologer, because it has maximum secrets, so every astrologer gets maximum scope of researching. This is sign about which no one can tell with precision that what will happen to the planets in it, as it is sign of secrecy itself. Wherever Scorpio falls in your chart, you may have had biggest challenges in making things related with that house more stable. Scorpio is also one of those unique signs which has 2 rulers, i.e. Mars and Ketu. In Western Astrology, Pluto also co-rules Scorpio. All this makes Scorpio a chaotic sign. Scorpio consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatras, i.e. Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha.

Joint Impact of Saturn-Rahu – So, it is obvious that Rahu will make us gravitate or obsessed towards things of the house where it is sitting (Pisces) and where it is aspecting (Scorpio) but Saturn will put a block of delay, hard work and perseverance over the same house (Scorpio) and results will be achieved after immense hard work. Result is obviously frustration because we want to achieve those things right now due to Rahu but unable to achieve due to Saturn. As always Saturn will win the battle and we have to bow down to Saturn, hence we will get results of the house where Scorpio falls in chart after great delay, hard work and perseverance. Also, the results can be very limited and reduced.

Significance of Aspects – Let’s see which aspects of Saturn and Rahu are coming to Scorpio –

• Saturn’s 10th aspect is about taking up duty and responsibility of the house/sign where it goes. So, it shows that we may have to take up the responsibilities of the house where Scorpio sign falls in chart or simply to take up the responsibilities of instabilities and ups/downs in life.

• Likewise, it will be Rahu’s 9th aspect on Scorpio which is aspect of higher education. So, to deal with these instabilities in a better way and come out of it, we will have to educate ourselves in those matters. It also shows that person can educate himself in occult/mystical/research oriented matters too which can help person in dealing with instability.

• So, if we are ready to educate ourselves in matters of the house where Scorpio falls in chart or in matters of Scorpio itself then we can handle the duties and responsibilities of Saturn in a better way.

• Needless to add that from May, 2024 to May, 2025, Jupiter will also aspect Scorpio sign from its transit position in Taurus. This will make Scorpio as most important sign and house where it falls as most important house for 2024-25 as all three most impactful planets (Rahu-Jupiter-Saturn) will be impacting Scorpio sign.

• As Scorpio remains the sign of occult, mystical things too, this joint impact of Rahu-Saturn-Jupiter can easily bring some mystical events in life. People who are following spiritual pursuits can see these events bringing a major change in life.

Dasha – As always, someone going through Rahu or Saturn MD/AD will feel the full impact of transit. Others will also see some of 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. Rahu’s maturity age is 42 years. So, if you are over 42 or close to 40, you can have mild impact of this transit. It is largely because you are used to such results in life.

Planets in Scorpio – Also, if you are born with planets in Scorpio, you will see results of those planets too as Rahu-Saturn both will impact them. Again, end result will be of limitation and hard work related with those planets.

Jeeva Karaka & Ajeeva Karaka – As always, we have to remember that these very limited results with immense hard work will be more 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.

It is better to not expect any benefits from people or relationship of the houses where Scorpio falls in your chart during most of the 2022-25.

Sign Based Impact – As all these planets are impacting Scorpio sign, the obvious impact will be on Scorpio related things –

• As Scorpio is sign of major changes and instabilities, we can see a highly unstable environment in general with everyone or a feeling of instability/insecurity or fear.

• This is time to be extra careful while travelling or driving as Scorpio is sign of accidents and surgeries too.

• As it is also sign of research oriented matters, better use of this transit will be in research oriented activities.

• As Scorpio is also sign of Occult, Mysticism and Hidden matters, people can generate interest in occult or hidden side of life.

• This can easily bring any mystical experience or event in someone’s life.

• As Scorpio is sign of major transformation, we can see some major changes happening in life. As always, we just need to be receptive towards those changes. Resistance to change will bring stress.

• These changes can be in any area of life; like Career, Relationship or Health etc.

• At the same time, if a person is pursuing meditation or other spiritual or mystical pursuits then this time can be the best of time for them.

• This time can also bring to knowledge some hidden secret, either in personal life or in public domain in general.

• As Scorpio is also sign of Sexual Intercourse, sexual desires can be very high. As always, it is same energy which we utilize in different areas of life. It is our wish if we want to utilize it in meditation or sex.

Now, let’s have a glance on what effects each ascendant/moon sign will see on the house where Scorpio falls due to joint impact of Saturn-Rahu –
