Saturn-Rahu joint impact in 2022-23


Finally, the last of the longer duration transit articles for this year. It is when Rahu turns into Aries in March, 2022 and Saturn will go into Aquarius during 2022-23, Rahu-Saturn both will impact the signs of Aries and Leo. So, it is important to see what this transit will bring on table along with other transits.

We have already covered in detail the transit articles of Rahu in Aries - https://www.astrosaxena.com/RahuTRAries, Ketu in Libra - https://www.astrosaxena.com/KetuTrLibra202223, Saturn in Aquarius - https://www.astrosaxena.com/SatTrAqua2223, Jupiter in Pisces - https://www.astrosaxena.com/JupTrPisces2223, Jupiter-Saturn joint impact - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jijs2223, PKY to Pisces - https://www.astrosaxena.com/PiscesPKY2223 and Saturn-Ketu joint impact - https://www.astrosaxena.com/JiSK2223.

So, this article will be like a finishing touch to all the results discussed in the above articles. Also, as most of the planets involved in these transits are malefic by nature which are known to give hardship and troubles, results will be more or less same as discussed in above articles. Hence, I will not cover ascendant-wise results in detail here. As nature of Rahu-Saturn remains as is in all signs/houses regardless of dignity, if we keep in mind the nature of Rahu-Saturn together, we will be able to understand what they are going to do in Aries signs during the year.

Transit Period – As we know that Rahu will move into Aries on Mar, 2022 and will stay there till Nov, 2023. Saturn will be in Aquarius between April to July, 2022 and then from Jan, 2023. So, the joint impact of Rahu-Saturn will remain for about 3 months in 2022 and almost whole year in 2023, which is a potential time window to predict events. This joint impact will be on Aries and Leo signs.

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.

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 (Aries) and where it is aspecting (Leo & Sagittarius) but Saturn will put a block of delay, hard work and perseverance over the same houses (Aries and Leo) and results will be achieved after immense hard work. End result is obviously frustration because we want to achieve those things right now due to Rahu but unable to achieve due to Saturn. In the end, as always Saturn will win the battle and we have to bow down to Saturn, i.e. we will get results of the houses of Aries and Leo signs or of the houses where they fall in chart after great delay, hard work and perseverance. Also, the results can be very limited and reduced.

We have discussed results of Rahu in Aries - https://www.astrosaxena.com/RahuTRAries but to understand the final results, we have to keep the Saturn factor in mind that Saturn will make these results coming only when person is ready to put the best efforts over the longest period of time through Saturn’s 3rd aspect on Aries from Aquarius.

Similarly, in whichever house Leo falls, the results of that house will get reduced to minimum because in transit, Saturn-Rahu both will be aspecting Leo from their respective transiting signs. Hence, it is making a kind of double energy of Saturn-Rahu on the house where Leo falls. It kind of confirms that in most of these 18 months, we should expect very limited results of the things related with the house where Aries and Leo falls.

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 more than an year 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 still have mild impact of this transit. It is largely because you are used to such results in life.

Planets in Aries and Leo – Also, if you are born with planets in Aries and Leo, 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. For more info on this concept, please check this link - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jkak. It is better to not expect any benefits from people or relationship of the houses where Aries and Leo fall in your chart during most of the 2022-23.


We have already discussed the results of Rahu in Aries in a separate article - https://www.astrosaxena.com/RahuTRAries. As Saturn is aspecting Aries sign through its 3rd aspect, we only need to add flavour of extra effort and hard work in all the result discussed in Rahu in Aries article. So, all the results discussed with Rahu in Aries can be achieved only when person is ready to work hard and put an extra efforts in matters related with Aries or in matters related with house where Aries falls in chart.


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

Aries – Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 5th house. Stress can be around love relation and children. Not a good time to plan for child or get into a new relationship. Education and Creative pursuits will require focus, attention and hard work to give any result.


Taurus – Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 4th house. Either they will have stress at home or with/related to Mother or they will travel away from home and mother to have very limited results of 4th house. Either ways, there will be stress and they would feel a lack of peace of mind. They would need to put double efforts in their home based business, if any. Possibilities of gain of real estate is there but after immense hard work.


Gemini – Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 3rd house. They can also go away from home and feel a lack of peace of mind. They may have to put an extra effort in getting anything done. Relation with younger sibling will go for a toss. In matters of business and learning, immense hard work and perseverance would be required. Need to be careful about parents’ health.


Cancer – Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 2nd house. Their family environment can be stressful. They may need to be very careful in matters of wealth else saving money could be an issue. Great deal of compromise and patience is needed in family matters. It is a stressful impact on family life and money matters. Be cautious in both matters


Leo – Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 1st house. They will feel as if their whole life is stuck and not moving anywhere. It is time when they need to work on themselves and life path. They would need to put immense hard work for the same. They can have an idea to work for themselves as an entrepreneur but even that would require immense hard work. It is better to focus on creative side of life.


Virgo – Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 12th house. They should be careful against their expenses else they can get into big losses and expenses.  It can also bring losses in relationship. Their foreign travel or stay can either be very limited or very stressful. There can be lots of stress around wealth. Bed pleasure will be reduced to minimum. Health matters should be looked into pro-actively.


Libra - Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 11th house. Almost no benefits from elder sibling, friends and networking circle. Their gains will be reduced and will only come after immense hard work and perseverance. Not a time for expecting manifestation of desires. They can work on their entrepreneurship plans but even there, gains will come after delay, hard work and perseverance.


Scorpio - Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 10th house. It can be a stressful time in job oriented career. Relations with Father and other people of authority can go for a toss. It is better to mentally prepare for entrepreneurship related career/work. They also need to take care of Father’s health. Their public image may suffer and they may have to work harder on their work and career.


Sagittarius - Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 9th house. Need to be careful about parents’ health. Again, relations with Father and other people of authority can be stressful and they may have to leave job. Focus needed for success in matters of higher education. Even there, they would need to work really hard to get the results.


Capricorn – Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 8th house. A major change in overall life can be on cards. If person is receptive towards change then fine else it can be very stressful. Need to be careful against accidents and surgeries. Relation with in-laws can be stressful. Need to work hard for business benefits. Relationship benefits should not be expected at all.

Aquarius - Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be in 7th house. Again, not a good time to expect any results from marriage, partner or spouse. There can be stress in relationship. Not a time to get into new relationship. New business can begin but would give results after immense hard work and perseverance. Better not to expect much from relationship area of life.

Pisces - Saturn-Rahu joint impact will be 6th house. Again, any big expectation in relation can result in disputes and conflicts. Need to be careful against health issues; else some long term illness can come up. Job environment can be stressful and they need to avoid conflicts as much as possible. Health should be in focus.

Conclusion – This gives an indication that 2022-23 can be an year of frustration, limitations and hard work for majority of people due to these long term impacts of strong malefic planets on Aries and Leo signs, at least in area of life which these 2 signs represent in a particular chart. Just like any other malefic transit, the key to go through this one is also awareness, patience and perseverance.
