Let’s look at important things here –
Saturn - It is all that which we don't like in our life. Saturn is Delay, Frustration, Restriction, Limitation and Anxiety. It is people of Authority, like Boss at your Work Place or Father-Figure at Home. Saturn is our Karmic Debt from past-life. Saturn is the things we didn't treat too well in our past life. Saturn is our Challenges and Lessons of life. Saturn is Old-Age, Teeth/Bones in Human Body, Diseases, Changes etc. Saturn represents our Step-Relations, it means that wherever Saturn sits, people related with that house give us Step Treatment. Saturn is Hard Work, Efforts and most importantly Perseverance etc. Nothing comes easy and in one go with Saturn. You have to work hard continuously over the longest possible period of life. Saturn makes a person Legend as Legends have one thing in common that they choose one field and work hard in it for whole life.
Ardra - Ardra is nakshatra of transformation, turmoils and chaotic events. This can be most closely related with accidents and emergencies. For more information on Ardra, please check this link - https://www.astrosaxena.com/ardranaksh.
Gemini - As Ardra is part of Gemini, Gemini sign and its representations become important here. Gemini is the 3rd sign of zodiac belt, so it represents many things related with 3rd house of horoscope like, Communication Skills (either written, oral or even by sign language), Marketing, Business etc. It is a sign basically related with communications and business ideas. Gemini is divided into 2 and half nakshatra of Mrigashira, Ardra and Punarvasu. Gemini's lord is Mercury, which is significator of Communications.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Gemini, Mercury’s position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Mrigshira/Gemini.
Rahu - As Ardra is ruled by Rahu, Rahu's position and dignity will also have an important role in functioning and results of any planet in Ardra.
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Generic Results of Saturn - Lots of things change in life with Saturn. Hence, many things will change with Saturn in different nakshatras. As Saturn represents delay, hard work and perseverance, it shows that whichever nakshatra it is placed in, Saturn will give results with hard work, delay and perseverance. With Saturn, it doesn’t matter if he is in friendly sign/nakshatra or enemy sign/nakshatra. Saturn represents either challenges or even more challenges anywhere. It can never be convenient or pleasant in any house/sign positions, not even in exaltation. Another generic thing will be Saturn’s results in relationship matters. Saturn is a cold or harsh planet. In any house/sign/nakshatra, Saturn would show that people related with that house will give person a very harsh or cold treatment. In romantic relations, Saturn will just suck the pleasure factor away and relationship life can be very dry and cold. People say that after 35 Saturn gives better results but I feel that it is not that Saturn will bring better results but we realize our limitations in life till 30-35 years of age and we understand that what we can expect in life and what we cannot. With this background, let’s understand Saturn in various nakshatras.
Interpretation of Saturn in Ardra Nakshatra – Saturn is in Rahu’s Nakshatra here and in friendly sign of Mercury. It can be one of the most difficult planetary position as Saturn is the most malefic planet and Ardra is one of the most troublesome nakshatra. So, both of them coming together indicates a huge trouble, at least in Jeeva Karakas of life. Saturn represents long durations and Ardra represents major chaos. It shows that person can go through major chaos in life over a long period of life, especially if he is under Saturn or Rahu dasha. At the same time, Saturn represents delays and slow movement. It means that the chaos or transformation would come slowly in life. It means that person will get many warning signals and chances to avoid chaos before it actually starts. Another way of understanding is that chaos will only come if person neglects all the warning signals and doesn’t take any proactive measures to avoid it. Chaos will be related with the house where Saturn or Rahu is placed or related with the houses which are ruled by Saturn and Rahu.
But everything has positive and negative traits attached with it. Saturn represents illness & miseries and Ardra is nakshatra of new inventions. This shows that this placement can help person in medical field and they can invent medicines or new ways of treatment. As Saturn also represents Technology, it can show someone good in inventing things in technology related matters too.
So, this planetary position can also have its positive/negative results. There is nothing much here to talk about results in relationship matters.
Role of Mercury – Mercury's placement is important to guide Saturn in right direction as it is Gemini's lord.
Role of Rahu - Rahu's placement is important to guide Saturn in right direction as it is Ardra's lord.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Saturn in Ardra. So, we always need to take a holistic view of chart rather than just 1 planetary position.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Saturn in Ardra can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
