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.
Hasta - Hasta is nakshatra of healing, health care and skillful people. It also represents hard work. For more info on Hasta, please check this link - https://www.astrosaxena.com/hastnaksh.
Virgo - As Hasta is a part of Virgo, Virgo sign and its representations also become important. Virgo is the 6th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents almost all the things which are represented by the 6th house of horoscope like Debts, Diseases, Obstacles, Serving the under-privileged, Service Life, etc. Besides this, Virgo represents analytical or critical nature of people, being perfectionist and healing abilities. Virgo's basic representation is the lady coming in boat with wheat and herbs in her hands. So, Virgo is basically a sign of healing. Virgo consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury.
Moon - As Moon rules Hasta, Moon's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Hasta/Virgo.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Virgo, Mercury's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Hastai/Virgo.
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 Hasta Nakshatra – Saturn is in friendly sign here but in enemy nakshatra. The common theme between Saturn, Virgo and Hasta is healing and health-care. They all represent it. So, a potential indication from this position is that they can be interested in medical profession but as Saturn is involved, results or benefits of this position will come with delay, hard work and perseverance. As Hasta is also related with hard work, they may find it difficult to put their best efforts in initial life. Their ability to work hard will also develop with time. As Hasta is also connected with Skills and Handiwork, their skills will also develop with time and hard work.
As Hasta means Hands, they can be easily seen as Reiki Healers. As Hasta also represents achievements or being ambitious, it shows that they can achieve big later in life. In early life, they may find it difficult to achieve their desires. As Saturn is in Moon’s nakshatra, they may find it very difficult to find emotional connection with people in relationship.
Role of Moon – Moon placement is important to guide Saturn in right direction, being Hasta's lord.
Role of Mercury - Mercury placement is important to guide Saturn in right direction, being Virgo 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 Hasta. 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 Hasta can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
