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.
Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra related with mystical events and experiences. It is also nakshatra of duality. Please check this link for more info on Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra - https://www.astrosaxena.com/pbnaksha.
Aquarius - As Purva Bhadrapada is part of Aquarius sign, Aquarius and things represented by Aquarius are also important here. 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.
Pisces - As Purva Bhadrapada is also a part of Pisces sign, Pisces and things represented by Pisces are also important here. As Pisces is the 12th sign of zodiac belt, it represents the same energy and things which are represented by 12th house such as Isolated Places, Spirituality, Imagination, Other Dimension or Other World etc. Besides these things, it also represents your Hidden Talents, Ability to work in background, Spiritual Self etc. Pisces is consisted of last 2 and half nakshatra, i.e. Purva-Bhadrapada, Uttara-Bhadrapada & Revati. Pisces' lord is Jupiter.
Saturn & Rahu - As Saturn-Rahu co-rule Aquarius, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Bhadrapada/Aquarius.
Jupiter - As Jupiter rules Purva Bhadrapada and Pisces, its position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Bhadrapada/Pisces.
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 Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra – Saturn is in neutral nakshatra here. In Aquarius section, it is in own sign and in Pisces section, it is in neutral sign. It is nakshatra of initial or early spiritual experiences. Saturn there delays person’s initial spiritual inclination. In initial life, they may not be interested much in spiritual matters. They may not find right person to guide them in spiritual matters or they may get very strict or disciplinary type of people which may take away their interest from spirituality in initial life. Even if they get the right person to guide then also they may not value that person. So, their spiritual initiation and initial experiences in spirituality will be delayed. At the same time, Saturn represents focus, hard work and perseverance which means that they are going towards spirituality after delay and perseverance in life. This also means that they can work hard in spiritual matters for a long time with more focus than others. As Purva Bhadrapada is also nakshatra of counsellors and guides, it shows that their counselling abilities will also develop after many delays in life.
Purva Bhadrapad is also represented by double-faced person and as Saturn represents duties & responsibilities in life, it shows that they can have different careers at different times. But as always, due to Saturn’s impact, spirituality will evolve with time.
This double-faced representation can impact their personal life too where they can get into split or separation in relationship or family. It can create difficulties in relationship life. This also shows possibility of multiple relationship, cheating or infidelity. Saturn impacting relationship life is obviously going to create troubles.
Role of Saturn & Rahu - As we are trying to interpret Saturn only, we need not to look at Saturn’s position separately being Aquarius lord. Rahu placement is important to guide Saturn in right direction, being Aquarius lord.
Role of Jupiter - Jupiter placement is important to guide Saturn in right direction, being Pisces & Purva Bhadrapad 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 Purva Bhadrapada. 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 Purva Bhadrapada can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
