Saturn in Aquarius

Saturn takes 2.5 years to transit a sign and is the most important transit in Vedic Astrology. Our past life karmas are denoted by Saturn, and it shows what our sufferings due to it (Saturn as a significator of the 6th, 8th and 12th houses and ruler of the natural 10th house (Karma) and 11th house (Labha). The placement of Saturn and its aspect denotes our problem areas in life and needs remedy. Saturn is impurity and the best remedy for Saturn is Narayana who is always pure.

Saturn moved in Aquarius on April 29, 2022, and will take almost 2.5 years to transit this sign. Saturn in Aquarius is in its own sign, like Capricorn but here Saturn’s nature is completely different. Aquarius is an air sign and Saturn is much more powerful in air signs as it is the same element of its exaltation. The full energy of the wind God Rudra is activated. This wind can give strength or cause great destruction. Remember the Co-Lord of Aquarius is also Rahu, so the full energy of Shradha Yoga can be seen. Sradha is the ritual done after the death of someone in Vedic Tradition. Capricorn is the graveyard of the zodiac, denoting death energy, after which comes Aquarius, which symbolises things after death.

Saturn became retrograde on 5 June 2022 and will enter Capricorn again on 13 July 2022and will be retrograde till 23 October 2022. Retrograde Saturn is very hard to handle as it becomes three times more malefic. Saturn enters Aquarius again on 17 January 2023.


Aries people have to be careful for the time ahead. Rahu is already in Aries and Saturn will have full aspect on them from Aquarius. Health issues and depression can hit them hard. Aries Ascendants must take care of their bone health and especially dental health. They must control their anger and try to rest their minds for the coming 2.5 years. Saturn gets debilitated in Aries, so its aspect on Aries is also bad.

ॐ तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं भर्गो देवस्य धिमहि। धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात्।
om tatsaviturvareṇyaṁ bhargo devasya dhimahi | dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayāt |

The Gayatri Mantra is a very good way to maintain health and clear the head. Aries people must worship the Sun God so that these two malefics Saturn and Rahu are under control.


Taurus people are very strong but they need the strength of Shri Rudra to pacify Saturn. There is a wide misconception that Saturn is the YogaKaraka for Taurus. This is absolutely wrong and is based on a very superficial knowledge of Vedic Astrology. Taurus suffers from a tattva dosha of Vayu (There are 5 tattva dosha Signs and 7 Graha Dosha Signs) and Saturn cause major problems for them. Saturn is also their Bhadhak, so how can Saturn be their YogaKaraka.

Saturn is now transiting their 10th house, which means this transit is a Kantaka Shani or Shani Dhaiya. Saturn’s transit over the 10th house is denoted as a very painful time, like a thorn in one’s life (Kantaka). This can cause problems in work, business and marriage life. This period for Taurus is trouble and can affect them badly. Don’t fight with your spouse, maintain peace at home, and don’t stress with work. Work-life is going to be troublesome for the next 2.5 years, so don’t lose your sleep over it. It’s time not to be stubborn and always make informed decisions.

ॐ नमो भगवते रुद्राय | om namo bhagavate rudrāya

Worship Shri Rudra every evening to pacify Saturn. Four rounds of 108 on Rudraksha Rosary will provide very good protection and remedy the problems at work.


Gemini has been suffering a lot for the last 2.5 years, as they were running their Kantaka Shani. This is their breathing space and time to recover from all the previous damages. They need to take care of their Father during this period. A little hard luck can be experienced during this transit. Females who are expecting a baby might face difficulties in pregnancy and should take proper medical care.

ॐ त्र्यं॑बकं यजामहे सु॒गन्धिं॑ पुष्टि॒वर्ध॑नम् । उ॒र्वा॒रु॒कमि॑व॒ बन्ध॑नान् मृ॒त्योर् मु॑क्षीय॒ माऽमृता॑त् ।।
Om tryambakam yajāmahe sugandhim puṣṭivardhanam  urvā rukamiva bandhanān mṛtyor mukṣīya mā’mṛtāt

Regular chanting of Mrityunjaya Mantra and Saturday visits to Shiva Temple is very good for the Gemini people.


Cancer people started their Kantaka Shani as soon as Saturn entered Aquarius. Saturn transiting the 8th house or 10th house is called Kantaka Shani or Shani Dhaiya. They have to take care of their health, as chronic diseases might bother them. Work issues and transfers can happen. If a transfer at work or change of job is happening just accept it.

ॐ नमो नारयणाय | om namo nārayaṇāya

Do this mantra every day to remove the 8th house effect of Saturn. Along with this mantra, Mrityunjaya Mantra should also be done to grant protection of health and life.


Leo is having the aspect of Rahu from the 9th house, which causes trouble to health and natural protection. Saturn is now going to give them a lot to work with their relationships and marriage. Leo Singles might find someone and move into a relationship in the coming 2.5 years. Married people have to be patient with their spouses and take care of their spouse’s health. Saturn in the 7th house is a good time for relationships and love affairs, just be careful and don’t do it if you’re already in one.

ॐ त्र्यं॑बकं यजामहे सु॒गन्धिं॑ पुष्टि॒वर्ध॑नम् । उ॒र्वा॒रु॒कमि॑व॒ बन्ध॑नान् मृ॒त्योर् मु॑क्षीय॒ माऽमृता॑त् ।।
Om tryambakam yajāmahe sugandhim puṣṭivardhanam  urvā rukamiva bandhanān mṛtyor mukṣīya mā’mṛtāt

Regular chanting of the Mrityunjaya mantra is best for Leo people.


Virgo will always have a problem with Saturn, Virgo is all about absolute purity and Saturn is all the dirt. Virgo people will face challenges for the next 2.5 years. But these challenges can be overcome by hard work and dedication. This period will make them strong and bold in life. Saturn transiting in the 6th house may give some acute health problems and digestion issues. Take care of your gut health and keep your system clean (Detoxify)

ॐ नमः शिवाय | om namaḥ śivāya

The Shiva Sadakshri Mantra is very good for cleaning past life karma piles.


Libra with all its love and relationship issues might find true love. Saturn in the 5th house of love is aspecting their 7th house which may make them fall in love. Libra should advise caution in love and relationship issues as Ketu on their Ascendant is very prone to make mistakes. Falling in love is okay but don’t fall for love.

(ॐ) नमः शिवाय | (om) namaḥ śivāya

The Shiva Panchakshri Mantra (Don’t speak OM, inhale it) is best to grant one’s wishes and offer clarity and knowledge.


Scorpio people have always been misunderstood as very hard and emotionless. To be honest, Scorpions are very gentle and loving. They have the ability to transform themselves to a very great extent. This Saturn transit can cause Scorpions to be sad and troubled at heart and at home. Saturn in the 4th house of Happiness and Home is considered to give sorrow. They should also take care of their mother. Scorpion males can have some issues with wife also.

ॐ नमो भगवते कूर्मदेवाय | om namo bhagavate kūrmadevāya

This mantra will stabilise their heart and home. The mantra should be done in the morning facing north, sitting on a yellow asana.


Sagittarius people have been the worst hit in the last 2.5 years. This is their recovery time. Now Jupiter in Pisces is in strength and Saturn has moved away from them. They should avoid unnecessary altercations and control their anger. Parents’ health might be an issue in the coming 2.5 years. Troubles with younger siblings can happen. Don’t act rashly and control your speech. A lot of bad thoughts may come, try to meditate.

ॐ नमः शिवाय | om namaḥ śivāya

Shiva Sadakshri is a good mantra to strengthen Jupiter and remove the 3rd house effect.


Capricorns have been having a lot of trouble for the last two years. Saturn in Capricorn was making the world a graveyard. Now it has moved to Aquarius, so the troubles for Capricorn are a little less. Capricorns should focus on their appetite, work and earnings. Finances can go for a swing for Capricorn in the next 2.5 years and Saturn can easily deplete their wealth.


Hari Naam Japa i.e. Chanting the name of Hari is a very good remedy to remove the bad results of the Saturn transit.

Sade Sati

Natives with Moon in Capricorn are running the last phase of their Sade Sati. This phase will go on for the next 2.5 years, till Saturn moves into Pisces. The last phase of sade sati can be very damaging to one’s profession and work life. Problems in the office and with finances may hamper your happiness.

श्री कृष्ण शरणं मम |
ṣri kriśna śaranam mama

This mantra will help you to sail through the difficult times of sade sati in the last phase.


Aquarius is the own sign of Saturn. The big difference between Capricorn and Aquarius is that the latter has Rahu energy also. Capricorn is the graveyard, and Aquarius is something beyond it. (Planets in Aquarius Navamsa show paranormal activities and sprits may trouble the native).

For people who have Aquarius Ascendant, their health will suffer. Saturn when transits the Ascendant damages its significator the Sun and causes ageing depletes Ojas and makes one stressed. They need to make the Sun very strong and remedy the weakness of Aquarius.

ॐ तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं भर्गो देवस्य धिमहि। धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात्।
om tatsaviturvareṇyaṁ bhargo devasya dhimahi | dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayāt |

The Gayatri Mantra will protect the Ascendant and make the Sun very strong. This mantra should be done early morning to increase its power.

ॐ नमः शिवाय केदरेशवाराय हौं जुं सः |
om namaḥ śivāya kedareśavārāya hauṁ juṁ saḥ|

The Kedarnath Jyotirlinga mantra can remove all weakness from Aquarius and grants strength and protection. Jyotirlinga mantras are one of the highest remedies and offer the best protection.

Sade Sati

People with Moon in Aquarius have a lot on their plates. When Moon is placed in Aquarius in the natal chart, it needs serious remedies, Moon hates this sign and it can cause serious heart issues. These people will start their second and main phase of Sade Sati, which causes havoc. They have to take care of their mental and physical health, professional growth and family life. It is going to hit all aspects of life and the moon (manas) is hit badly.

क्रीं कालिके स्वाहा।
krīṁ kālike svāhā |

Only Kali can remove Saturn’s affliction on Moon. This one is a generalised Kali Mantra, each horoscope will have a specific form of Kali based on their Saturn’s placement. This mantra can be done by everyone. This should be done after sunset and along with a Shiva Mantra.

Note: Mahavidhya Mantras should be done after guidance from a Vedic astrologer and after checking the important Varga Charts. This is because out of the Ten Mahavidhyas one will be your Mukti that will dissolve and destroy all your Sansaara.


After a lot of trouble, Pisces took a period of healing as the mighty Guru transits its own sign. Pisces still have a Paap Kartari of Rahu in Aries and Saturn in Aquarius. Pisces have to take care of their sleep and marriage. They may also encounter problems with their legs also.

Sade Sati

Pisces Moon will start their first phase of sade sati as Saturn transits the 12th house from the Moon. This will create problems in married life and cause disharmony at home.

कद् रुद्राय प्रचेतसे मीळ्हुष्टमाय तव्यसे। वोचेम शान्तमं हृदे॥ ऋग्वेद १-४३-१
kad rudrāya pracetase mīḻhuṣṭamāya tavyase| vocema śāntamaṁ hṛde|| ṛgveda 1-43-1

This Rudra Gayatri from Rig Veda has the power to stop all suffering caused by Saturn.

Other Factors

Transits are complicated events as they affect a lot of factors in the chart. Transits are not only seen from signs and planets but also from Arudha Padas, Chara Karakas, Vishesh Lagnas and Varga Charts. In the words of my Guru real Sade Sati is seen in Navamsa which kills the whole fortune (Bhagya).
Example: Saturn transiting the 2nd house from Hora Lagna can destroy one’s wealth.

Transits can be easily seen and understood from Sarvotobhadra Chakra.
