So finally, the transit of all transits for which whole of astrological world is curious about. It is when 3 strong malefic planets Saturn-Ketu-Pluto will join together in the sign of Sagittarius during the year 2019. From here, we will also understand the complete results of Rahu-Ketu transits in Gemini/Sagittarius axis as Saturn is going to impact them. So, let’s have a look at how this transit is going to impact Human Life on Earth on the basis of following points –
Transit Period – As we know that Ketu will move into Sagittarius on 23rd Mar, 2019 and will stay there till 19th Sep, 2020. During this time, it will join Pluto and Saturn which are already transiting in Sagittarius. Saturn will leave Sagittarius on 24th Jan, 2020. So, the joint impact of Saturn-Ketu-Pluto will remain for about 10 months which is a potential time window to predict events.
Importance of Joint Impact of planets – During transit, whenever 2 or more planets of slower transit speed join in one house/sign, they make us focus at things related to that sign or house and make us fix those issues. Especially when malefic planets are conjunct together for such a long time, they bring intensity, stress and hard work in those areas of life as this is what they are known for.
Earlier Similar Transits – And we can see this effect on us from earlier joint transits of malefic planets as follows –
- Rahu-Saturn – From Jan, 2013 to July, 2014 Rahu-Saturn joined in Libra and gave rough times in relationship.
- Mars-Saturn – From Feb, 2016 to Sep, 2016, Mars-Saturn joined in Scorpio and gave to us lots of transformative events, changes, accidents and surgeries.
- Mars-Ketu – From May, 2018 to Nov, 2018, Mars-Ketu joined in Capricorn and authorities & ego of people took a beating.
- So, we can say that such joint impacts of malefic planets during transits do have a profound impact. This impact gets further intense when the same planets go into their transit movement.
Final Effects – We can see that there is a lot of fear being spread regarding this transit in online world and much of this is correct too but as we are going to see the effects of this transit in our lives, we need to understand that we can’t blame every negative event on Saturn-Ketu-Pluto transit. Understand that your today is result of your yesterday and your tomorrow will be result of today. Everything in life is a sequel of events. Nothing is split from other. So, if your relationship is going horrible during this Saturn-Ketu-Pluto transit then just ask yourself if it was rosy before this transit? Things must have been already bad and this transit may just bring the events to its logical conclusion. So, if you are concerned over some event during this transit then it is better to start working over it from now only. May be for this reason only, astrologer community starts writing about all these important transits and changes 2-3 months in advance, so that people can start taking proactive measures before transit actually brings results.
Now, Saturn, Ketu, Pluto Sagittarius and Jupiter.
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.
Ketu – Ketu represents Isolation, Separation, Spirituality, Mystical World, Other Dimension means things related to Alien World. It also represents Son, Dog, Intuition, Research Ability, Curious Nature, things which we have already achieved in past life and not much concerned to perform in this life.
Pluto - Pluto co-rules Scorpio in western astrology. From Scorpio itself, we can presume the kind of energy Pluto can be. Pluto represents continuous process of destruction and reformation. It also represents chaotic/transformative events, controlling and manipulative ways.
Sagittarius – Sagittarius is the 9th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents many things related with the 9th house of horoscope like Religion, Knowledge, Wisdom, Higher Learnings, Gurus, Teachings from your Father etc. Besides it also represents Coaching, Universities, Professors and Preachers, Higher Wisdom, Written Law of the Land etc. Sagittarius has next set of 2 and half nakshatra which are Mula, Purva-Ashadha and Uttara-Ashadha. Sagittarius' lord is Jupiter.
Jupiter – As Jupiter rules Sagittarius, we have to keep an eye on Jupiter too. Jupiter is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Expansion of Things and Elderly People. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Saturn-Ketu-Pluto in Sagittarius – Now, what we can expect when these 3 malefic energy meet in Sagittarius?
- Saturn represents limitations, restrictions, frustration, hard work, delay and perseverance. Ketu represents isolation and separation. Pluto represents destruction and forming something new. So, end result of these 3 planets together can obviously be not of providing something. It only shows that these 3 planets are coming to restrict, delay, separate and re-build the things related with Sagittarius or related with the house where Sagittarius falls. So first of all, break the illusion that they are going to provide anything in 10 months time in Sagittarius.
- At the same time, we have to remember that these restrictive/separative/destructive tendencies of Saturn-Ketu-Pluto will be 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.
- At the same time, Saturn represents focus, Ketu represents research work, Pluto represents dark hidden secrets and Sagittarius is sign of higher education. So, this conjunction is going to immensely help us in any kind of research, educational pursuits and investigating the hidden knowledge or information. We will have focus on these things.
- As Saturn-Ketu-Pluto all represent occult and mystical side of life, higher education related with occult, mystical and hidden subject will receive further intensity and focus.
- As Sagittarius also represents belief system, religion & philosophy and these 3 are malefic planets, we can see a rise in fundamentalist or egoistic approach in matters of belief during this transit. At the same time, any such approach will be crushed in no time by the same planets. But one thing is there that we can have conflicts over belief systems.
- Then this conjunction is happening in Sagittarius sign which is 12th from Capricorn, the sign of Govt and Authority. So again, it shows not so good time for people in Govt and Authority. Any authoritative attitude, abuse of power or egoistic use of authority will be crushed in no time. If elections take place in this time period in any country then political party in authority can lose major ground.
- We have already discussed the results of Rahu-Ketu transits in Gemini/Sagittarius axis (https://www.astrosaxena.com/rahugemini1920 and https://www.astrosaxena.com/ketusagi1920). Now, the Saturn impact on both Rahu-Ketu will show that those results can only be attained through immense hard work, delay and perseverance.
- Last but not the least, Sagittarius lord Jupiter is transiting through Scorpio. Scorpio is sign of major changes and it is 12th from Sagittarius which represents loss related to things of the house where Sagittarius falls in your chart. So, it kind of confirms that this transit can bring major changes in related to things of the house where Sagittarius falls in your chart. Only saving grace is Parivartan Yoga between Jupiter & Ketu which will support education, knowledge in occult/mystical/spiritual matters.
Houses ruled by Saturn-Ketu-Pluto – Saturn-Ketu-Pluto will rule 3 houses in each chart but we need to focus on the house where Sagittarius falls as we will have all the energy focused there. Also, if we take all houses in consideration then this article may never complete.
Planets’ Natal Position – We can see these planets’ natal position in birth chart but as their nature and results remain as is, their dignity is not going to make much change in their joint impact on Sagittarius.
Dasha – As always, someone going through Saturn dasha or Ketu Dasha will feel the full impact of transit. Others will also see the results as transit duration of 10 months 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. Anyone above 35 or in 40s can still have mild impact of this transit. It is largely because they are used to such results in life.
Planets in Sagittarius – Also, if you are born with planets in Sagittarius, you will see results of those planets too as Saturn-Ketu-Pluto transits over them. So, the person may feel stress, limitations and changes related to things of that planet in life.
Planets’ Aspects – All 3 planets will have their aspects but again we can’t cover all those aspected houses here. Anyways, if Saturn-Ketu-Pluto are aspecting somewhere, things will be stressful and would require lots of patience to get any results from those houses.
Planets Transiting through Sagittarius – During the same transit of Ketu in Sagittarius along with Saturn-Pluto, other planets like Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars will transit through Sagittarius in due course. We can say that there will be lots of energy in Sagittarius during this transit.
Planets transiting over Nakshatras – Most of this transit will take place in nakshatra of Purva-Ashadha. It will make us education or learning oriented as it is nakshatra of higher education. We will learn how to focus, work hard and segregate the useful information from useless information. As Venus rules it, these planets can separate us from worthless relationships and move towards more meaningful ones. We will also get the results of the house where Venus is placed in chart
Again, the occurrence of event is based on chart + dasha + transit. Event should be 1st promised by the birth chart, then you should be under dasha which allows the event and then transits can bring the event. As we are looking at last step, it can’t be taken as final word on events to take place but we can get an indication where our focus, hard work and searation will be in these 18 months.
Now, the main course.
Please see results of this transit from Ascendant and Moon Sign both. Predictions from Ascendant Sign will show what will actually happen and predictions from Moon Sign will show what our mind desires and how mind will react to such events. Another thing is that when Ascendant and Moon sign both point towards one event that event is more potential to happen.
Aries Ascendant/Aries Moon Sign – For Aries people, these planets will be in 9th house/Sagittarius of Higher Education, Teachers or Gurus etc. It shows that Aries people will be highly inclined towards higher education, religion, philosophies etc. They can be involved in research oriented higher education. This transit can bring sudden change in their belief system. This can bring disagreements with their teachers or towards any fundamentalist approach towards knowledge and philosophy. They can have controversial or unconventional views on religion and philosophy. At the same time, they should take care of their father’s health as 9th house represents loss of father. They can have disputes or conflicts with father or other people in authority. Not a great time for job oriented career as they may have to leave their job as it also represents loss of career.
Taurus Ascendant/Taurus Moon Sign – For Taurus people, these planets will be in 8th house/Sagittarius of Change, Occult and Mysteries. It shows that they can go through a major change in their overall life as 8th house represents major changes. Good/bad nature of change will depend on how are overall chart and dashas. It also shows an inclination towards research and higher education in occult stuff. They may have to work really hard for their business gains. They can land into some big controversy or scandal. Overall, some major change is around the corner. Need to be careful against accidents and sudden events.
Gemini Ascendant/Gemini Moon Sign – For Gemini people, these planets will be in 7th house/Sagittarius of Relations, Partners, Spouse and Business. It is not a good transit for them in matters of relationship as all planets involved are not providers. They will make Gemini physically or mentally separated from their partner. It clearly shows disputes, conflicts and litigations coming in their relationship life. Again, final result depends on chart + dasha + transits. Basically, they should leave any expectation from relationship matters in these 10 months at least. Please keep focus on higher education and business.
Cancer Ascendant/Cancer Moon Sign – For Cancer people, these planets will be transiting 6th house/Sagittarius of disputes, diseases & daily work life. It shows that Cancer people can get into disputes in relationship matters. There can be illness related to stomach or intestines. Overall, they should focus on keeping good health as some past illness can come back. Daily work life will involve learning new things and sharing that knowledge. They can have serious issues at their work place in job setup. Need to be careful about health matters. It is better to be proactive in health matters else it can become a long term issue.
Leo Ascendant/Leo Moon Sign – For Leo people, these planets will be transiting 5th house/Sagittarius of Creativity, Education, Children and Love etc. It shows that they can be separated from their love interests or children for various positive/negative reasons. Not a good time for planning a child but if someone is willing for child birth through alternate ways then they can go ahead. They should be more focused matters of education and creativity. They can get higher education in their creative pursuits. Good transit for higher education but not so good for love matters. Actually, they should not expect anything in love matters. Certainly not a good transit for starting a new relationship.
Virgo Ascendant/Virgo Moon Sign – For Virgo people, these planets will be in 4th house/Sagittarius of home, home land and mother. It shows that Virgo people can be separated from their home, home land or mother for various good/bad reasons. It can also bring a foreign travel. It also shows health issues to mother. Good time to go towards meditation. As 4th house is 12th from 5th house, it is again not a good time for relationship. It will be great if they can focus on learning new things. There can be stress and trouble in home environment or with mother.
Libra Ascendant/Libra Moon Sign – For Libra people, these planets will be in 3rd house/Sagittarius of Travelling, Siblings and Business etc. It shows that they can be travelling away from home land. They can be focusing on higher education related with their skills, interests. They can also be getting education related with business. Relationship with younger sibling can go for a real toss. It is better to not expect anything in that area of life. Good time to focus on higher education, learning new things, travelling and business.
Scorpio Ascendant/Scorpio Moon Sign – For Scorpio people, these planets will be in 2nd house/Sagittarius of Family, Wealth and Speech etc. Their focus, hard work and perseverance can be in gaining wealth through self efforts especially by knowledge, education and research related work. At the same time, they can be separated from their family and go away from them for various reasons. It is good time to research on wealth or finance related things. They can develop a spiritual way of speaking. Not a good time for family life. This can also bring some major changes in family. Saving wealth can become an issue.
Sagittarius Ascendant/Sagittarius Moon Sign – For Sagittarius people, these planets will be in 1st house of Self, Life Path and Overall Life etc. This shows a complete focus and complete overall change on their life path. Saturn itself was enough to bring that result and now with Ketu-Pluto, it is more prominent. They will work hard to find their right life path and know about self. As all planets aspect 7th house/Gemini where Rahu is transiting, they also should not expect anything in relationship area and rather focus on self. They should be ready and receptive of overall change in their life during 2019.
Capricorn Ascendant/Capricorn Moon Sign - For Capricorn people, these planets will be in 12th house/Sagittarius of Foreign Lands, Spirituality and Isolation etc. It shows that their focus can be in matters of higher education related with foreign lands, spirituality and research matters. Bed-Pleasure can be minimized. They should take care of their expenses. This transit can either restrict their foreign travel or it can bring stress in foreign lands. Good time to focus on religious or spiritual practices but better to not expect things in personal relationships.
Aquarius Ascendant or Aquarius Moon Sign –For Aquarius people, these will be in 11th house of Gains, Income and Desire etc. It shows that Aquarius people will be separated or feel separated from their elder sibling. It also shows a separation from working in a large organization or corporate. At the same time, their research in higher education can bring gains in life. Saving money can become an issue. Personal relationship and any desire related with those should be left-aside. They may not be too willing to network with their professional circle but whenever they do, it will be around subjects like higher learning, occult and spirituality. They can gain a lot from knowledge and education based entrepreneurship. They should utilize their knowledge to serve a higher humanitarian cause.
Pisces Ascendant or Pisces Moon Sign – For Pisces people, these planets will be transiting 10th house/Sagittarius of Career, Father, Authority and Fame. As 10th house is house of career, 9th house is house of loss of career, this transit can make them lose their job setup career and they can be pushed to start their own work. If they persist in jobs, situation can be very stressful. There can be problems related with health of father too. Their relation with father or other authority figures in life can deteriorate. At the same time, they can be inclined towards work related with higher education, knowledge and teaching. Not a good transit for job based career. Hence, they should start focus on their own business and higher education.
Conclusion – As we can see that common theme of this transit looks like higher education, research and knowledge, this transit can be very helpful for any type of educational pursuit but if we are looking to get the results from people of the house where Sagittarius falls in chart then it can be disappointing time. Also, it is not the time to get fundamentalist, egoistic or rigid about your knowledge and belief else one can have rough time dealing with Saturn-Ketu-Pluto. Just like any other malefic transit, the key to go through this one is also patience and perseverance.
