Sun-Nodes Intersection, 2017

Normally, we pay attention to eclipse day for the effects of solar or lunar eclipse in our lives but I feel that the day when Sun passes off the exact degree of Rahu-Ketu axis during transit is equally important. Now, 1st thing is to understand that I am saying it is "equally important". So, I am not saying it is more important and eclipse day has less importance.

Let's understand it by a real life example.

After looking at my chart (, I happened to make a prediction towards the end of 2016 that between Jan, 2017 to June, 2017, we will shift to a new house. Reasons were -

1. Jupiter-Mercury dasha. Mercury ruling 11th house/Virgo (8th from 4th house - change of home) and sitting in 3rd house/Capricorn (12th from 4th house - loss of home). At that time, we had a house property at home town. So, I had an intuition that may be that property will be sold (as Mercury and 3rd house both represent selling/buying things) and we will be able to buy a new property at Hyderabad where we stay now.

2. Annual Transit-wise - Saturn was in 2nd house/Sagittarius and Jupiter was in 11th house/Virgo between Jan, 2017 to June, 2017. So, Jupiter-Saturn joint impact was in 11th house of change of home for these 6 months. That makes the prediction potential. Moreover, Rahu was transiting 10th house/Leo of Career and Ketu (separation) was transiting 4th house/Aquarius of home. It was also nodal return for me. Also, Saturn's 3rd aspect was on Ketu in 4th house/Aquarius. Saturn is limitation and Ketu is separation. Together they can bring events of separation from 4th house related things. So, Ketu transit was also indicating towards separation from home during that time.

3. As soon as Feb, 2017 started, we were approached by a potential buyer and I saw things happening.

4. Now, the solar eclipse day was 26th Feb, 2017 but the actual event of selling the property at home town was on 22nd Feb, 2017 when transiting Sun crossed the degree of transiting Ketu at 9 degree in my 4th house/Aquarius. So, few things are easy to understand here. Like,

5. It was 4th house. Hence, the event was related to house property and home town.

6. It was Ketu-end of eclipse season, hence it was about letting go of things at home town.

7. But difficult to understand is that why Sun became important in this property matter? My 4th house/Aquarius is ruled by Saturn-Rahu and they both are in 10th house/Leo ruled by Sun. So, Sun is the ruler of 4th house lords for me. Sun's movement is going to impact my 4th house related matters too as it rules my 4th house lords. So, when Sun crossed the exact degree of Ketu on 22nd Feb, 2017 in 4th house, there was an event of letting go of 4th house related things.

8. Again, the important thing is that the event didn't take place on solar eclipse day on 26th Feb, 2017 but on 22nd Feb, 2017, the day when Sun-Ketu both were at exact degree. Neither a day before nor a day after.

9. Now, another important thing is that it is not that Sun-Ketu met at exact degree and event took place all of a sudden. Things were building up for couple of months and serious negotiations were going on for 1 month at least, then the final event took place on that particular day. If we were not looking to sell-off the property at that time then some other event related to Sun or 4th house might have taken place as per the circumstances.

10. As Sun-Ketu join today again at 2-3 degree Capricorn, we can expect some important events related with Sun, the house & planets Sun rule over in your chart, Sun's representations as Jaimini Karaka and the house where they are joining together in your chart. Again, person going through Sun MD/AD and already going through such circumstances will see the event more prominently.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

P.S. - This analysis also gives an idea how upcoming Saturn-Ketu transit in Sagittarius may behave? At that time, Ketu transiting 4th house and Saturn aspecting 4th house was successful in separating me from that house property. As overall dasha was of benefic planets, that separation resulted in benefits. So, they joining together in Sagittarius from March, 2019 onward can bring separation from the things related to the house where Sagittarius falls in your chart. Now, if overall dasha is benefic then separation can be due to a positive event or vice-versa.
