Shani change / badal on Nov15, 2011 9:08 a.m. IST as per Lahiri Ayanash (24:02 for Nov2011)

Article updated for all signs (12th Oct and 14thNov) as I came up with more things for later signs which I thought would be useful for earlier posted ones. (I am happy that a pure Astrology article like Moon Sun relationship has generated a lot of interest. It has many hits and a in top 5 articles in the past few days.)

Shani may be perceived as a problem for common people but it is “Annadaataa” for astrologers! J Shani change, Shani Mahadasha, Sadesati words ensure a certain success/readership! J Guru change and Shani change are the biggest movements for an astrologer as they denote very significant change in the fortunes or rather “curves” (“change in slope for a Rashi” as I like to call it) just like various economic or life cycle curves for a person of a specific rashi. Also, the yogas that they (current positions” “Gochar”) make to ALL of your birth-time planets is also equally important topic as their angle/position to your Moon Sign.

Please remember that both Guru and Shani curves are active at the same time as are curves for all other planets like Chandra, Surya, Budh, Shukra, Mangal, Harshal, Neptune, Rahu and Ketu. However, Guru and Shani has a very distinct effect on us and our state of mind/feel-good factor is almost always the function of these two planets at a broad level. In between these Shani and Guru curves we have other curves that bring variance/delta to overall feel-good (or bad) of these two major effects. For example: Yuvraj Singh is/was under a VERY adverse movement of Shani on his Mangal (sports, injuries, blood, and friends) in Kanya rashi from Sept 20009 to Nov2011. BUT he also had Guru bang opposite to his Mangal from May2010 to May2011 making a significant impact to him. He made his world cup performance despite Shani due to Guru curve being active at the time. Of course his performance was not typical Yuvraj and was much more mature and serious which reflected Shani curve being active at the same time.

TULA / LIBRA SUN SIGN (Oct 16 to Nov 16) and MESH / ARIES SUN SIGN (April 14 to May 14) REAL Sun signs:

Shani in Tula will affect EGO & Self esteem of people born from Oct 16 to say Nov 16 or so. It will show that “Kayadya pudhe shanpan chalat nahi – Adala Narayan Gadhavache pay dhariJ i.e. Seniors/Govt matters need to be dealt with tact and diplomacy. This is the period which is ZIP w.r.t EGO…rather it could affect even the self esteem! Spine, Heart and father are the areas of concern in this period. Govt related matters – Pay respect to EVERY official you visit. Smile was NEVER hard for Tula Sun folks – USE IT! J Shani in Tula means older artists will take a back seat and make way for newer artists as 80% folks in movies are with Moon or Sun in Libra – Leonardo Caprio is Oct 16 to Nov 16 born so is Julia Roberts, Shah Rukh Khan and countless actors. Bachchan sahab is Tula Moon Sign. Only the people who show the LEAST Ego – will be spared by Saturn -- Any Ego will be CRUSHED in this period brutally. Look at Bachchan (Oct 11) Virgo Sun Sign, like Manmohan Singh (Sept 26) – Shani went over his Sun from Sept2009 to Nov2011 – Bachchan did lose KBC to regain it but he showed NO EGO and has not seen his ego getting hurt in this period as much. It is utterly difficult but still possible.

Let us look at effect of Shani change on all the Moon signs. This time let us start from bottom to top for a change! J

1. MEEN Rashi (Pisces Moon Sign)

Shani in 7th house (partnerships) from Sept2009 to Nov2011 showed reducing sphere of influence w.r.t the masses or “reporting-to” people at workplace. It showed issues in relationships/marriage if any. It was a reality check w.r.t partnerships and marriage – someone you count on for support as a partner. Mom’s health could have been a concern (except May2010 to May2011) and also water retention in body came down to lowest level (again except May2010 to May2011 – that showed increased retention of water – weight gains) and resulted in loss of weight. There were lessons learnt about collaboration with masses and people who are not like you (lower in the rung w.r.t hierarchy).

Now 8th house Shani takes you away from your mass-base for next 2.5 years. You will have lowest reporting to people in this period. You will be asked or happen to work more alone mostly away from the crowds. It is a bit tough as you are used to depend on some people in 6 and 7 Shani quite a bit which are no longer available to you now! The assignments or the work areas would be such that not many people need to report to you. The work is less glamorous but more serious. You are not given glorious assignment in 8th Shani but assignments or ventures that do not have big scale but has equal or more challenges than the big ones. You get new levels of maturity but in a hard way by making mistakes and after putting a lot of hard work you find yourself lacking what the job needs. This makes you grow as an individual. People around you and seniors see your good work but also see gaps that need work before you are given the next level in 9th Shani!

All that happens in 8th Shani is VERY BENEFICIAL to you but you have to learn the ability NOT TO TAKE STRESS --- No matter what -- only think what YOU can do and do your best without any pride or prejudice! You are given an opportunity to experiment, try out new things and also innovate without very big stakes – something you cannot do in bigger engagements. Remember, regardless of your GREAT – GENIUS work – The initiatives you are part of have some inherent issues (& also strengths) – You cannot bypass or suppress those inherent things by your great work! J So think what you are learning and what you are giving to the initiatives you are part of. This is time to acquire skills so that when you enter glorious period of 9, 10, 11 Shani – You are PREPARED to take on those, lead large number of people and have a very steep curve of growth fueled by 9th Shani from Nov2014 for 7.5 years.

Shani in 8th house also shows health issues that are long pending – need to deal with. This applies more to Lagna Rashi than Moon but I guess it does still apply. Also a great time for certifications, check every box that was not checked earlier when you were too busy with work. Remember – The way you “use” 8th Shani WILL decide the magnitude of success you get in 9, 10, 11 bhraman of Shani from Nov2014 or so for 7.5 years!

A Side-Note: Guru will start something new from May2012 to June2013 – Also Guru would be 5th from August 2014 to August 2015 approximately – the 5th Guru and 9th Shani at the time would bring in UNPRECEDENTED success in life – REAL FEEL GOOD and complete pay-off of your hard work!! Something to die for or rather to live for! J So regardless of Shani being 8th in next 2/3 years, Guru will start something from May2012 to May2013 which will bring in travel of 6 to 8 hours. The travel or change of location/department where you physical seat will at least change! J This travel/change is a must in 3rd Guru for growth. If you avoid this travel – the growth would be given to someone else – next in the list who has maybe 5, 9 Guru! J Regardless, the 4th Guru from June2013 to June2014 is going to be a SLOoooooW! J The 4th Guru brings stagnancy, saturation and also satva pairksha at workplace and in personal life. You feel not wanted at workplace and might need to report to a person similar in profile as you are. This changes dramatically in 5th Guru – so again – keep the [Patience & Perseverance mantra in mind and reap benefits in the 5th Guru – DREAM COME TRUE!

All the best for preparations, study, certifications, tough assignments, enriching experience, working opn much delayed health issues in 8th Shani! J

2. KUMBH Rashi (Aquarius Moon Sign)

Well you can read 8th Shani description above for Meen rashi and you will know what you have done in the past 2.5 years from Sept 2009! J As your rashi is co-owned by Shani and Harshal, Shani being 8th also affected your health in the past 2.5 years. Guru maharaj were very much OFF in 2009 and until May2010 for you. 2009 was 12th Guru year mostly (except 3 months Guru wakri etc) which mandated a relook at your life, career, health and overall well-being. It was to PLAN something for next 12 years. May2010 to May2011 Guru was 2nd – Your value was acknowledged surprisingly by your bosses/organization or surroundings. It was good for your family also and also share market, land and other investments or returns of those investments. But – 8th Shani is something which did not allow you real “feel-good” from Sept 2009.

Now you are entering 9th house Shani – Dawn of the new things to start. The 3rd Guru from May2011 to May2012 has already started you a bit more optimistic anyways but Shani change to Tula will only add to this feel-good. The 9th house Shani can make you move from current location to take on new challenges for growth. 9th is the house of “Bhagyoday. No bhagyoday on the face of the earth has happened without changing the location! Couch-potatoes never have any bhagyoday! J

9th Shani will now completely leverage you 8th Shani peeda & investments in various things. 9th Shani will START something new for you slowly (not suddenly on 1 day) – it will not give a promotion which can be attributed to this change BUT it will slowly but surely will PLACE you in a strategic position which would last for next 7.5 years of your career – 9 , 10, 11 house Shani bhraman for Kumbh folks. Michael Jackson career was made in Shani 9, 10, 11 to his Kumbh rashi and Kumbh lagna from 82 to 89/90. (he also had terrific Shani mahadasha of uchcha Shani in his horoscope). Bachchan has a terrific run from early 70s to 1980 in Shani 9, 10, 11 to Tula rashi along with Shani Mahadasha etc etc.

To summarize -- this 9th house Shani will bring Kumbh moon sign folks in “market”! J It will put spotlight on you. Your innovative, unorthodox and NEW & LATERAL moves/thoughts will be in great demand. This is a logical sequence of Makar the traditional/orthodox/industrious folks making hey in their 9th house Shani /increasing GDP, starting businesses etc and in the process setting the stage for Kumbh to come in action now! J

You will acquire slowly in next 2/3 years the people who would stay with you for 7.5 years. They will grow with you step by step as you climb-up the ladder. Make sure you have the 2nd line always else you would be able to go that much more distance! These people stick with you for 9, 10, 11 house Shani. Your bhagyoday in 9th house Shani is related to MASSES --- Your products/services etc acquire NEW masses which support you for next 7.5 years and also beyond but for 7.5 years the keep increasing and stay with you later also but stop increasing in direct proportional.

A Side-Note: Guru is starting something new until May2012 and is supporting you. It could make you travel to a 6 to 7 hours away location. 4th Guru from May2012 could make you come back to current location but also it will start STAGNANCY and lethargy. The 4th Guru takes Satva-Parisksha (character-tests) at workplace by making you report to a equal person or denial of a much required/deserved promotion due to reasons out of your and your boss’ control. This is given/delivered in 5th Guru which is from June2013 to June2014 for Kumbh rashi. (Rahu in Vrishchik from May2010 is 10th to you which would make you part of some IMAGE initiatives at workplace. Your paternal side contacts will help you in career/business in this 10th Rahu 18 month period.)

I have TONS of Kumbh rashi friends (70%+?) including Bela and Tanish! J I guess me entering sade sati but surrounding folks doing better would balance it out! J Last time I remember Kumbh rashi folks had 9, 10, 11 Shani from 1981 to 1990 or so. My friend Girish R & Ranjit K were doing great in Nashik’s Pethe high-school! J Michael Jackson rocked big time and Shridevi ruled in India. Bachchan and RD were in sadesati – saw some really tough times from 80/81 to 88/89.

3. MAKAR Rashi (Capricorn Moon Sign)

From Sept 2009, Shani is supporting you while Guru was testing you: forcing you to plan and invest time, energy and money in your next 12 years of future in 2008 and 2009 – actually -- until May2010. Shani was 9th to you so far; this meant starting of some new long term ventures, acquiring a new profile which ensured at least 1 promotion and also a “movement”/change of location, company or overall profile. This has set your course for next 5 years. The outcome of next 5 years depends on the past 2.5 years – i.e. knowledge, people and position acquired in this period. Now, let us look at the 10th Shani effects!

10th Shani in short is increasing support from masses, increasing mass-base, increasing stress (which is sweet actually!) at workplace due to increasing sphere of influence. Your “reporting-to” folks that you acquired in the past 2.5 years will support you to grow. The next 2.5 years is not of outright monetary returns but more like increasing steam in a pressure cooker! The 10th house Shani will throw a lot of TESTS at workplace. It will force you to report to a senior who look tough / demanding and of very different personality than yours (actually, that might be the reason why he acquired you in the 1st place!) It is very well possible to report to an aged person which will be also beneficial with all that experience in the (happening) tests of 10th Shani

You WILL be tested at workplace with some tough decision making. This could be related to people issues (promotions decisions that you make) or financial analysis (ROI) for a new initiative where YOU decide if your company should take that risk. You will be held accountable for the important decisions you make. Long hours at workplace and bringing work at home will be common in 10th Shani. Arguments with seniors for various reasons are almost a given. Keep them healthy and use tact and diplomacy -- Nobody wants to work with a “difficult to work with” person! J ALWAYS use facts and figures in 10th Shani instead of hunches – of course you WILL be driven by gut-feel and hunches but will need to support with facts and figures as you will represent you unit, company etc to not only your seniors but even upper management. Your senior will invite you to many upper level meetings to present a view point.

The 10th Shani is great for actors and politicians as it ensures tremendous support from masses. (Raj Thackeray, Shah Rukh, Rahul Gandhi, Gopinath Munde are of Makar rashi.) This 10th Shani mass support might not result in top posts or outright single handed success but it does show increasing mass base for sure. The lessons/exposure learnt in 9th Shani will certainly make them work on some great projects in 10th Shani. (Of course 4th Guru is of NO use for career from May2011 to May2012 and I am surprised who – if at all a Jyotishi – advised Munde saheb to put rebel flag in 4th Guru!?! – The 4th Guru is a saturation, status quo, reporting to an equal ability person and SLOW – Needs Shraddha & Saboori and hard work!)

May2012 to May2013 – Guru will join the party for Makar folks – The 5th Guru is going to be all mighty and will show you some “Dream come True” scenario. You will feel good about yourself “from within”. What YOU think as success will be delivered to you.

However, 4th Guru from May2010 to May2011 is completely “off” w.r.t career for you. It will make you report to a person who is more or less similar to your profile. You will have to do some role without related grade/designation. The initiatives that you would work will certainly enrich you but they will NOT bring any outright recognition. Rather 4th Guru is more like a Satva-Pariksha like the 10th Guru. The 4th Guru is a test even at home and not just workplace! So this IS a major effect of slow growth, saturation etc until May2012 despite 9, and 10 Shani positions.

So there – You are RIGHT TIME RIGHT PLACE until late 2017. From May2012 it will only be great for a year but overall from Nov2011 you will see increasing sphere of influence and happening stress at workplace! There IS some showdown with seniors for sure in 10th Shani, especially, if you are born under Libra/Tula Sun (Oct16 to Nov16) or Mesh/Aries Sun (April 14 to May14). Even Sagittarius Sun Sign (Dec 17 to Jan14) would see some issues with authorities but this showdown will not harm you career much as power of 10th Shani is tremendous – you are in the sweet-spot of the Shani’s curve of 30 years!

4. DHANU Rashi (Sagittarius Moon Sign)

May2010 to May2011 was good at “home turf”, interior decoration etc but not the best period in career and life. It was about stagnancy and saturation in career and worst case reporting an equal ability person or not much career planning at all etc. For interior decorators or house wives, it was the best period as 4th Guru made you to appreciate domestic stuff more than career! Shani has been supporting from July2007 when it started some new things for you until Sept2009 which changed your profile to upper level. This was a good effect as after 2006 of 11th Guru you were a bit off in 2007 and some feel good and social/physical weight gain in 2008.

Now from May2011 to May2012, 5th Guru is becoming or bringing “Dream Come True” situations as per your Dhanu rashi moon’s degree and now Shani changing in Nov2011 is only SONE PE SUHAGA – some results are: Windfall monetary gains for the efforts you did for past 5 years, maximum number of people working for you compared to past 5 years. Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar got stupendous success in elections in their 11th Shani (Nitish also had 5th Guru in Bihar election time frame). Both are Vrishchik rashi. Now it is Dhanu rashi’s turn to make hey.

May2012 to May2013 (6th Guru) you will see competitors getting ahead and some saturation and people ganging on you due to your recent success etc but STILL 11th Shani ensures tremendous gains & success. Look at Ratan Tata, Bachchan Sahab and Akshay Kumar from July 2007 to Sept 2009 when they had 11th Shani.

The best part is that around the time Shani goes 12th and Sadesati starts for Dhanu folks in late 2014 or so – Guru saheb comes 9th in Aug15 to Aug16 (approximately – not accurately checked) and further extends your career growth for 3 years! Enjoy! J

Now 11th Shani is the extreme state of “Leverage” mode – Hardly any time to gain new knowledge or insights. It is just milking the machinery to the fullest extent possible – Chaap lo. Those in politics will find themselves at Right Time Right Place. Increasing – peak mass base will be seen in the next almost 3 years.

I do not think that despite the 12th Shani i.e.e sadesati looming large in late 2014 --- Dhanu folks would find any time for thinking “What Next” which needs to be done in 12th Shani (i.e. sadesati first 2.5 years!). Think What Aishwarya and Sachin (both Dhanu Rashi) would do after 2014? That’s what is called as Sadesati! J J (Zaheer will enter Sadesati in Nov2011 along with Narendra Modi, Nitish Kumar, Nitin Gadkari, RR Patil, VilasRao Deshmukh etc folks). 10th Shani: Those in politics will find themselves at Right Time Right Place. Increasing – peak mass base will be seen in the next almost 3 years.

11th Shani can take you away from your kids but this is more like due to work load and all and not exactly like physical distance. 11th Shani also shows some need of investment of time in kids as they need it as they re in the phase of “making”. 11th Shani also asks to deal with hereditary /inheritance due to its 10th house drushti on 8th house. It also indicates “Health issues to come” due to its drushti on Moon – especially Mom’s health would show some pattern which would become bigger issue in middle phase of sadesati – Do not ignore these indications!

I’m really curious what more Sachin Tendulkar is going to do in 5th house Guru! Even the 6th house Guru would be aspecting his Mangal in Makar so cricket wise he will be ON despite the 6th Guru! The 11th Shani will only see stupendous mass frenzy and support for Sachin – Well – I am really curious! J

In short: “Dream come True” until May2012 due to 5th Guru; increasing competition and enemies from May2012 to May2013 due to 6th Guru. BUT overall stupendous mass support, increasing income (windfall!) in next 2/3 years from Nov2011.

Overall – Enjoy 11th Shani!! But remember there is only 1 universal truth: This shall also pass! J J

5. VRISHCHIK Rashi (Scorpio Moon Sign)

WELCOME TO SADESATI guys! After it was over in 89 or so you are again in for a Saturn ride! J

Well, well well!! 6th Guru is making you health conscious, doctor’s bills are increasing or rather it is highly advisable to do a comprehensive blood and urine etc check if you are on the late 20s or in the 30s. Now we are going to have Shani also coming to party! J 12th house Shani again shows a COMPLETE AUDIT of what has or done wrong in the past 7.5 years! J Vilas Rao, RR Patil, Narendra Modi, Nitish Kumar, Nitin Gadkari, Zaheer Khan à Time to learn new things – What worked before will NOT work now! DO NOT FORCE things to happen like you did in past several years – they will BACKFIRE now!

The 12th Shani demands PLANNING for next 30 years and NOT just a quick fix etc. Spend time, energy and money to prepare a BLUEPRINT for next 30 years. The 12th house ANY planet forces you to plan (“wyay” means expense) and “spend”. If you do not have time to spend it makes you spend money! J But 12th Shani is almost a “political exile”. It could mean jail time if you have done something wrong in the 9, 10, 11 Shani, more so in 11th Shani as it gives unprecedented power!

Badmouthing is a major effect seen in 12th Shani. Any damn person, even a street person who was all praise starts saying “ye salxx think aisa kiya!”. You have great person like Ratan Tata running to court not to make the (Radia) tapes public! J His letter written to Karuna about Raja’s vision came to bite him in 12th Shani from Sept2009 to Nov2011. Bachchan sahab somehow due to OVER humility and honesty and lack of arrogance has been able to keep badmouthing away – still Barabanki was not an easy thing to get away. Akshay Kumar is still figuring out “What next” – I am sure he would have had some action scripts ready once it was clear that not any every damn comedy is going to be a bit.

So there you have it – read my 1st article on this blog of sadesati – NOT ALL IS LOST – May2012 onwards 7th Guru will be GREAT for IMAGE building and expansion! 5th Guru from May2010 to May2011 gave you a GREAt success and started something new for you. Now this same thing will expand in 7th Guru until May2013. May2013 onwards 12 months are again PEEDA – lots of Peeda!! BUT August2014 to August2015 (approximately) 9th Guru will give you a strategic position which is the result of tactical success of the 5th Guru from May2010 to May2011. So GURU curve is still there to help you in Shani’s tough exam – HOWEVER all said and done it is sadesati 1st 2.5 years – demands study, certifications, new stuff planning, blueprint, badmouth dealing with Shraddha and Saboori.

So overall – Shraddha & Saboori from Nov2011 to May2012 – Then EXPANSION for 1 year and afterwards PEEDA --- until August2014 and again some solace after that. However sadesati 7.5 years from Nov2011 is tough Shani lesson. Let us see how all those folks Modi, Nitish, RR, VilasRao, Zaheer, Yusuf Patham Irfan Pathan find these years! J

I am also Vrishchik Rashi – I would be forced to do certifications in Astro which is going to be VERY troublesome to me as it makes you “ratta”fy some of the things which I hate – Traditional Approach to Astrology! J BUT I will HAVE to adopt a VERY methodical and structural approach which will satisfy everybody who approaches me. The 1st 2.5 years of sadesati will force me to adopt a more disciplined approach towards ALL things in life. Public expectations are all time high and if they are not catered to then it will be a chaos (“Are yaar usako mail bhejake 3 mahina ho gaya – lekin abhi tak reply nahi” is going to cause a lot of trouble!) Will need to cut down on Cricket, Music, and Movie time a lot if I have to take Astro seriously. Already 6th Guru is FORCING me to come in line in a hard way! J I usually send 10/12 lines of analysis for a horoscope (or more at times) – which is significant differentiator for a horoscope - -BUT now onwards I will be expected to write more and not just “hi-fi” past life references or some hints of health issues but connection with ayurveda and also some face to face time with some of the folks who really need help!

Next 2.5 years will force me to concentrate only on career and astro! Will need to learn new stuff in career to keep growth coming, old ways not going work! Similarly, will need to come up with my own product in astrology for every person who approaches me! Well – It is going to be VERY VERY interesting – I am terrified already! J J

6. TULA Rashi (Libra Moon Sign)

The “Dream come True” 5th Guru from Dec2009 to May2010 (Bachchan back in KBC) and 7th Guru from May2011 to May2012 is supporting you with a new fresh “Guru curve” despite adverse force of sadesati from Sept2009. The Guru is keeping you “in”-form but still you can see the folks like Ratan Tata, Akshay Kumar, AshokRao Chavan etc did face badmouthing and getting back of what they had done in 9, 10, 11 Shani. Akshay Kumar’s Shani curve of comedy is now almost over – Yes, a “GOOD” movie will still work regardless of the genre (action, comedy or tragic) but the era of any damn comedy movie working on box office is now sort of over. All Tula rashi folks from Sept2009 are thinking “What Next”?

The Tula rashi’s planning for next 30 years will (or should be) over by Nov2011. They should have figured out what they need to do in the long run and a blue-print could be very well be ready with them. Now the Shani in rashi is going to help with execution of the plan.

The planning in 12th and execution in 1st house movement is common to ALL planets and not just the Shani. It is just that Shani takes 2.5 years in 12th and 1st house each and hence this period is quite long. The planets in 12th and 1st house do not give any wealth to you as such – they make you work, work and work more. The execution will start giving monetary results in 2nd Shani – when Shani enters “Aarth Trikon” – i.e. Wealth-Sector.

1. The 12th Shani is in “Moksha Trikon” making you plan, spend time in spirituality, brooding etc.

2. The 1st house Shani is in “Dharma-Trikon” – making you perform your duties (Dharma means Duties)

3. The 2nd house Shani is in “Artha-Trikon” (Economic zone) which starts to give the monetary results of your efforts in 12/1 Shani.

4. The TATA company curve can be easily seen from May2005 to July2007 as 12th Shani, July2007 to Sept2009 as 1st Shani and Sept2009 onwards as 2nd Shani. You can map it to their planning for mergers for next growth and then actual mergers in 1st Shani and monetary results from Corus and even Jaguar (surprise!?) from Sept2009!

BUT there are other aspects to Shani movement in the 1st house i.e. in your own sign:

1. You are subjected to some water loss – You lose water in the body quite a bit. You are shown anomalies in the water retention etc in your body as Shani is moving over your horoscope moon which is karak of water.

2. Mom’s health becomes a concern as Moon also shows Mom. Staying/going away from mom is quite possible.

3. The cash flow could become a bit low Moon does show cash flow.

4. The social profile can take a beating as you hardly get any time to participate in social events, you are too busy in execution of your new plans and no time to socialize and have fun.

5. You get a complete reality check about your near and dear ones – You will get to see who your real friend is. You will be shocked by reactions or attitudes of many folks who you thought were close to you.

6. This is an “atma-Shuddhi” period and a very good phase as you get to know who not to trust for the next 30 years! J This short term loss ensures long term big gains. But it is NOT fun when it happens – it affects your emotional profile. The KEY is to NOT lose emotions and not become too 100% stiff and practical but try to “live” with these issues with emotional maturity and not lack of emotions.

7. Shraddha and Saboori is the name of the game now for 3 years.

8. For Tula rashi folks Moon is also the owner of the 10th house – hence the Shani in rashi also affects workplace not only due to 10th drushti of 1st house Shani but also Shani going over Moon which is Dashamesh. Some unnecessary emotional scenes at workplace could be caused in this Shani bhraman.

9. Mass Support will come back now. Masses will again start believing in you – They might have deserted you in the 12th Shani.


1. So overall Guru 7th will help and expand your horizons until May2012.

2. From May2012 to June2013 (8th Guru) you will be part of initiatives that go nowhere! J

a. You will do fantastic in those initiatives but those initiatives by their very nature will not bring great success.

b. This means May2012 to June2013 is going to cause a hell lot of stress on emotional and career front.

c. Only respond should be HARD WORK, certifications and awareness that you need to learn new things and not use the same ways that worked earlier.

d. Also – check what YOU can do – Do your Dharma/Duties without any pride and prejudice and you will be fine.

e. Half of the battle is won when you set your own expectations correctly. Expecting too much or miracle etc in this period.

3. The experience in this 8th Guru will set you up for the strategic success in 9th Guru from June2012 to June2014. This could cause much wanted and deserved travel also.

4. The effects would be more extreme if you are born from April14 to May14 or Oct16 to Nov16 (approximate dates) as you are either Aries Sun Sign or Libra Sun sign. Shani on Sun is a BIG issue for ego and self esteem and opposite to Sun (for Aries) also shows face-off with seniors/Govt and figures of authority. Along with Mom’s health – father’s health would be a bigger concern for Aries and Libra Sun signs (but please check REAL Sun sign and not the Western one!)

All the best for “execution” now! This is the best time to practice “Karmanye Wadhikaraste”, especially, from May2012 to June2013 for sure.

7. KANYA Rashi (Virgo Moon Sign)

Currently this is the worst affected sign which is not in the best position in both, Shani’s or Guru’s curve. Guru in 8th house is dismal for career or overall growth, health making you participate in initiatives that do not do much for you despite your best efforts. Even if your efforts are appreciated, you do not feel good. Shani in rashi is a BIG thing. It is testing your temperament and as you can see description for Tula rashi above (a) to (e) points (“In Short”) you are subjected to, in simple words, a mental torture from Sept2009 to Nov2011. The May2010 to May2011 period was certainly good as there was expansion and some feel good, image enhancement as Guru was 7th. (As they say about 7th Guru: “baal bhi na baanka”). This 7th Guru limited issues which could have been due to Shani to some extent.

Shani change will bring much better relief on personal side, emotional matters, mom’s health, your health (water retention in body would start to increase to normal levels now). You have handled Shani in rashi for 2+ years and that is something! 6th Guru from Dec2009 to May2010 and also 8th Guru from May2011 to May2012 are making this ‘Shani in rashi’ scenario much more painful & full of agony.

Now, Shani in Tula moving to 2nd house to Kanya rashi (in Artha Trikon / Economic zone) will start better cash flow as Shani would start giving slow but steady increase in monetary benefits for the efforts done in the past 5 years – The unpaid Karma of past 5 years will start paying now in next 2.5 / 3 years. (Refer to the TATA Group example mentioned above.)

However, as Shani starts NEW cash flow, it will also show issues/problems with your EXISTING investments. Your mistakes in share market, land deals or other investments will be given reality check and you will either book your losses or decide to hang on but you will be FORCED to take the correct decision with them. You are advised to show patience with your existing investments, a haphazard or a quick/hurried decision could hurt you! Folks waiting for you to pay them back will start getting restless and also violent at times. Do not enter in high risk investments for next 3 years – QUICK MONEY is NOT advisable in this period. Please beware of what you are signing! It could cause legal issues later on. Please invest with a very conservative manner (with all facts-n-figures) regardless of how much you earn.

Kanya rashi has Nakshatra’s of Surya (Uttara Phalguni), Chandra (Hasta) and Mangal (Chitra) – all 3 not the friends of Shani! J Although rashi swami is Budh which is OK with Shani – the Nakshatra swami shows that your intentions are not challenged by Shani but your ways are!! – Rashi or Rashi Swami shows WHAT – Nakshatra or Nakshatra Swami shows HOW. In your case what you are trying to do might not be challenged by Shani as it happens with MESH, KIRK, SING, VRISHCHIK signs but the ways will certainly be challenged! (I guess -- You might not read it in any other articles – This thought comes from pure logic but also many observations! (Chamatkara shivay Namaksar naahi! J)

The 2nd house Shani does aspect 8th house which is of inheritance and so does the 11th house which shows cash-flow / elder brother & 4th house which shows mom/farm/house etc. The issues with these houses could also be exposed but they might apply more from lagna rashi I guess. The 2nd Shani also makes you take care of your eyes, teeth etc. Health of some elderly family members will be an area of concern.

Right now multiple planets in Kanya rashi in Sept2011 & Oct2011 are making you execute too many things as all the curves (of these planets) are demanding action/execution/obeying your duties! J Hard work!!!

Guru would be 9th from May2012 – This will start 3 glorious years of Guru being 9, 10, 11- The best 3 years of the 12 (11.88) years of Guru Curve. This will ensure new initiate, strategic position, travel to a place/work position that you really like. This makes you right time right place for this curve of Guru which lasts for 3 years of growth and happening.

Until Nov2011 – Shraddha and Saboori – Continue that until May2012 for sure and put in AS MUCH HARD WORK as possible. Cater to your emotions and pay enough attention to it but do not become slave of your own emotions or “gand” (Sanskrit word). Do not fall in love with your sorrows – It could happen in 1st Shani – Going in your own shell for protection/self defense mechanism. This needs careful attention – Anyways – things will start looking much better after Nov2011. I just hope that you do not have too many planets in Tula or Mesh rashi! J J

8. SINGH / Sinvha Rashi (Leo Moon Sign)

Since May2005 you are under a very close audit/scrutiny by Shani. Sadesati is toughest period for Singh rashi folks as it is a raaj-rashi and shows desire to rule, discipline, to create their sphere of influence, inspirational behavior (which has inherent side effects) etc. Until Sept2009 the things were quite sad as EGO / Self esteem was completely attacked by Shani. You guys learned to live in a group, adjusted to “co-existence” (instead of trying to kill of other Singh around! J) in this period. From Sept2009 you saw some change with increase in income and efforts of 5 years paying some results slowly but surely. 2008 was of course good due to 5th Guru which saw a good tactical success. 2009 was mostly holding onto what you got in 2008. From Dec2009 to May2010 there was an expansion of your sphere due to 7th Guru for sure. It ensured image enhancement, water retention in the body etc. May2010 to May2011 was again saturation & peeda: being part of initiative/activities that will not stay with you later! But they are invaluable exposure which ensures future success.

Now, from May2011 things are looking up due to 9th Guru until May2012. This will give you a strategic position which will bring success for 3 years (from May2011). This is Guru’s cycle of 9, 10, 11 which is the best in the past 12 years.

Shani will now change to 3rd from 2nd position:

End of sadesati!! You are now out of a very tough, unfriendly, out of comfort zone kind of a era of your life. You had to learn and cope with new environment which Singh hate – They hate just being in an unknown / unfamiliar environment! Now you have acquired new hard and soft skills that would keep you in in the hunt (“market”) for next 22 years.

The 3rd Shani in the horoscope (to lagan or moon) shows mass support, good articulation, and guerilla war tactics (Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Balasaheb Thackeray). It is a great power for sure. Now Singh will enjoy 3rd Shani for 3 years. It will make them king makers. They will be able to play their cards and put their folks in key positions. They will see that the masses that left them in sadesati are coming back. They will find new mass-support too. Travel for some key talks, negotiations will happen in the 3rd house Shani. A great possibility of going 6 to 8 hrs away from current location for 2/3 years. The 3rd Shani can give you a great feel good (Sonia Gandhi Gemini Moon Sign – July2007 to Sept 2009 had 3rd Shani). But remember any abuse of power or position in 3rd Shani makes you pay dearly in the 4th house Shani. It is important to be very structured in your decision making and making sure you use your power to “give power/position” judiciously. 3rd house planets can make you very paternal (My guys are the best syndrome – “Apala to Sonya, Dusaryacha to Karta”!J). Do not hesitate to use someone out of your sphere of influence for a strategic position if that is the right thing to do.

Traditionally, Shani is called as GREAT in 3, 6, 11 houses. Next best are 9 and 10th – This is for personal success thru masses as Shani is karak of masses (& also Criminal law & order – NOT rituals – Guru owns that like education period, marriage etc). So you are one of the 3 rashis which will be blessed after Nov2011 by Shani (about 1/4th – 25% folks on the Earth!) J

If you are born with ARIES Sun Sign (as mentioned above: THE REAL one) or Libra Sun Sign – There is additional angle to this Shani in Libra which should be well-aware – PLEASE read the paragraph above. Regardless of that paragraph – Shani in 3rd house WILL provide you the benefits mentioned in this article but Shani on horoscope Sun or opposite horoscope Sun has its own different effect. Same applies to folks born in Kirk / Cancer Sun Sign – 16th July to 16 August as Shani will have 10th Drishti on their Sun Sign! So regardless of VERY favorable Shani curve of 3rd Shani – you also have something to be careful with Shani’s drushti on Surya which recommends caution with seniors/Govt/authorities.

In Short:

1. May2011 to May2012: Very good results, strategic position due to 9th Guru.

2. May2012 to June2013: 10th Guru Reporting to a person of equal or less ability, happening etc but stress at workplace, lot of work done in 10th Guru – increasing steam in the pressure cooker situation!

3. July2013 to July2014 – 11th Guru – Getting the same or better position as the person you adjusted with in 10th Guru – MULTIPLE GAINS from all sectors.

4. Shani to help tremendously from Nov2011 – except 3 months May June July2012 when it is retrograde and in last degrees of Kanya rashi.

Additional Text:

Singh is a very maani, abhimaani kind of a rashi which borders at arrogance – durabhimaan as a side effect of the personality. Mesh, Kirk, Singh, Scorpio are the worst affected by Sadesati by their very nature.

For example Uddhav Thackeray: despite winning Mumbai Mahapalika since 2002 single handedly, each election is termed as the “test of his leadership” J This despite winning in 2007 in the most adverse circumstances when Raj T and Narayan Rane were trying their best to hurt him. Recently in 6th Guru (and Sadesati) all his competitors and enemies got the best of the spotlight. 6th guru ensured a great alignment of competitors including his cousin’s MNS helping Congress/NCP take the power again despite an utterly dismal performance for past 10 years! THIS is sadesati!! He is at his minimum in this period and things will only get better now with 9th Guru and Sadesati getting over in Nov2011. At least he is not in jail like Suresh Kalmadi who is also Singh moon sign (& Mesh Surya). Still being #4 on the MLA list (45 MLAs) was not the best result for him – Lost even Opposition Leader post to BJP who got 2/3 more seats!)

Now 3rd Shani will certainly see his position strengthening but he has to figure out some way to deal with MNS as Raj T is Makar rashi and he will have 10th & 11th Shani in the next 5 years like Rahul Gandhi! J Uddhav’s Sun Sign is Cancer (27th July) which shows that he will need to make some adjustments despite 3rd Shani as Shani will aspect his Surya – Which shows he also needs to take care of his father’s (The Great Balasaheb) health. He can certainly preserve his self esteem but try not to get EGO in the picture, especially after Mumbai mahapalika results as he might need some support from MNS? J

9. KIRK (Cancer Moon Sign)

Kirk rashi came out of sadesati in Sept2009 – A significant event which changed your profile from a novice in the new field to a pro or a person who belongs in this new field and not just a new comer! The 3rd Shani from Sept 2009 allowed you to play games/politics with cards in your hands! J You could see Madhuri and Amir much more exuberant and back in business after Jan2003 when they entered sadesati. It took 2007 5th Guru for Kirk rashi to come up with “Taare Jameen Par” or “Aja Nachale”. The success of 2007 for these two and all kirk rashi folks gave them a strategic position in 9th Guru from May2010 to May2011. All KIRK rashi folks got a strategic position they always aspired to from May2010 to May2011. It has started something for them which would last for 3 years at least --- Guru being 9, 10, 11 from May2010: the 3 best years in the past 12 years.

However, Guru 10th from May2011 to May2011 shows a “satva-pariksha” at work place. Might need to work with or report to a person who is equal or less in abilities or maturity. The workplace will show several challenges and tough assignments. What started in 9th Guru which bring stress but this will be a happening or a positive stress about growth, not about problems. Patience and Perseverance needed until May2012 for sure in 10th Guru – All the work done in this period will pay off massively in 11th Guru from May2012 to June2013. You will get equal or better position as the person you had to deal with.

NOW --- THE topic of this article—SHANI Change – 4th Shani Guha-Kalah / Out of your comfort Zone!!!

You are no more going to enjoy the glorious 3rd house Shani. The decisions you took from Sept2009 to Nov2011 will be scrutinized very closely. The 4th Shani is an audit – lesser than sadesati but after 3d Shani it is a bit tough to handle (expectations management!). The 4, 8, 12 Shani are the periods of saturation but at the same time periods of review, retrospective analysis and correcting the mistakes/paying them off. It is again time for patience and perseverance and hard work. The 4th Shani also shows “Gruha-Kalah”. Check what Sonia is going through in past 2 years – fighting within her own people. The 4th Shani unlike 8, 12 does NOT take you away from your mass-base but rather masses show sympathy to you in this period to deal with the issues in hand. You are not blamed except for minor/mistakes you did but your abilities are not directly challenged etc like 12th Shani.

The 4th Shani needs emotional maturity and analysis of situations objectively – This is tough for an emotional sign like Kirk. The 4th house is about staying at home, soukhya, comfort zone. These all are challenged by Shani and you need to get out of your comfort zone. For IT field if you are comfortable with onsite – you re sent to offshore and vice versa! J If you are comfortable with technical side you are forced to take on people leadership and so on. The 4th Shani does make you work on something which you are not very natural at. Rather, you HAVE to deal with these things due to your own success in 3rd Shani which culmination of your hard-work in the sadesati period.

The 4th Shani is seen as a troublesome due to Shani being in Moksha Trikon 4, 8, 12 houses – away from your Dharma Trikon (1, 5, 9) or your Economic zone (2, 6. 10) or Kaam/Sahaj Trikon (3, 7, 11). Any planet in Moksha Trikon is of no good for material gains. It is great for INNER Growth – progress of the soul with lessons that must be learnt the hard way as it is Shani maharaj who is trying to get you away from things you want to do always/more often.

4th Shani also shows review of land /house/property/farms/vehicles etc.and makes you take difficult but much needed decisions – say removal of a corn which is painful but much needed for the rest of the finger/body. The 4th Shani is a short period of AtmaShuddhi.

Those with Surya /Sun Sign also in Kirk /Cancer (July 16, August 15/16) or Tula /Libra (Oct 16 to Nov15/16) or Mesh /Aries (April 14 to May14) would have a bit more trouble this periods due to issues with seniors, authorities, Govt and health of your father.

So you have some work to do until May2012 for sure and some hardships for sure until May2012. After May2012 Guru supports you a lot for a year until June2013 but Shani continues to poke you from Nov2011 for almost 3 years!

Manmohan Singh is Kirk Chandra rashi and Kanya Surya (Sept 26) --- gets out of Shani over Sun scenario which is VERY harmful for ego an self esteem – he was at the LOWEST Ego and Self esteem from Sept2009 to Nov2011. Now that changes BUT he enters 4th Shani -- ! J I guess his worries are not getting over despite a massive change of Shani leaving his Sun! J

In Short:

1. An year of “MULTIPLE GAINS” from May2012 to May2013 due to 11th Guru. Until then 10th Guru is not going to help with any promotion! Reporting to a equal or similar profile person is quite likely. You will get the same/similar position in 11th Guru. The 10th Gur, however in Economic zone, WILL increase money flow and keep you in the hunt at the workplace.

2. The 4th Shani from Nov2011 is going to create infighting (Gruh-Kalah). It will also make you pay for the abuse of power done in the 3rd house Shani. The 4th Shani is in spiritual trikon and has a very less significance in material life or career unless you are in farming or interior decoration – then you will see some tough & testing days but happening.

10. MITHUN (Gemini Moon Sign)

Well, you did have some tough lessons due to Shani’s 4th movement from Sept2009. The majestic support from 3rd house Shani was gone and you had to deal with a lot of Gruha-Kalah – Look at Sonia Gandhi! J I have mentioned 4th Shani effects in detail above for Kirk rashi which you can refer but that is not the focus here. GURU maharaj has been helping you a lot from Dec2009. Until May2012 is the period of 9, 10, 11 Guru to your moon sign. From May2011 you have 11th Guru which is culmination of your efforts in the past 9 years! You are right time right place from Dec2009 in that regards. This will continue until May2012. You would enter 12th Guru in May2012 which shows that you will need plan for next 12 years. You cannot expect the Guru curve to give you the same slope growth it gave from Dec2009 despite 4th Shani.

The 12th Guru mandates “expense” of time, energy and money on new learning skills and increasing your potential and ability. i.e. your likeability to this “Kamina” world. J This world is very cruel – They exactly know when a person enters 12th Guru or Sadesati (12th Shani!) J Suddenly you have Baba Ramdeo (Vrishabh rashi – 12th Guru from May2011) going thru bad mouthing etc as he has ventured in to something new without planning and preparation. He could have entered it from May2012 when he would have had completed the planning and Guru in his rashi would have helped with IMAGE and EXECUTION of the plan. So in short – 12th house planets mandate to plan, learn and start over. You do not lose what you already have (again like Baba Ramdeo – he still has the same number of followers in yoga). Now let us go to the 5th Shani effects from Nov2011.

5th Shani from 15-Nov-2011:

You will get relief from 4th Shani’s atma-shuddhi effect, dealing with mistakes or wrong decisions on 3rd Shani. 5th house is a tactical success house. Any planet there forces you to do what is very apparent and need of the hour sorts. Tactics (5th house) is doing something when you know what’s need to ne done; Strategy (the 12th house) is something when you need to something when there nothing to do! J

Now you will know what you need to when it comes to masses, education & you kids. The 5th house shows various things but mainly the education / buddhi, Kids and your dharma/duty towards life. Shani is karak of masses/workers etc hence you will fulfill your duties towards these things in 5th Shani. You will have slow but steady improvements and achievements now. The 5th Shani would force you to take on something in education which is big (for you) and needs a LOT of efforts. Also, there is a good chance that you could go away from your kids, or kids going away from you!

As 5th house is Duty/Dharma Trikon sthan – You will do or forced to do what is right thing to do. Your decision making will be now very much facts and figures based – without too many emotions or subjective reasons. It will be like proving a theorem (Therefore, therefore – step by step and reaching the final answer!) The anxiety of 4th Shani, the lack of decision making ab ability will be restored.

1. If you are too much of a tactical person with a strong 5th house i.e. not knowing what to do when there is nothing obvious to do – Shani in 5th house could be a challenge as it will show all such circumstances or lost opportunities when you could not make good use of the time given to you by 12th house or 4th house planets. You will realize – only if” I had read this once I could have got more marks in this exam --- Only if I had done this – I would be in IIM today! J etc etc! (This is applicable to someone born from Oct 15 to Nov15 i.e. Sun Sign Libra/Tula and Moon Sign Mithun as Sun is in 5th house to Moon and Shani going over Sun also!) i.e you will be forced to think WHAT than to think HOW which you comfortable with.

2. If you are a strategic person with strong 9th or 12th house in the horoscope then you will be forced to be very tactical and action oriented which is not your cup of tea! J You will need to check HOW more than WHAT which you are natural strength. Basically Shani will attack/balance extremities in your nature/karma by making you implement something you are not natural at in 5th Shani.

5th house Shani is SLOW and STEADY achievements —Do not expect miracles but do not expect reductions for sure – it IS about improvements and achievements al bit slower! – well after May2012 as 11th Guru can show some miracles until May2012! J The 5th house Shani makes you learn patience & perseverance & virtue of planning (not jumping in execution without planning).

The 5th Shani is great for lawyers and anybody to do something with law & order, judges etc. They will get the cases of their life time – complex, difficult but giving a great sense of achievements. So all Mithun rashi lawyers – be ready for some good high visibility cases in next 3 years.

As 5th house is also the house of Santati / kids: You will need to attend you kids more often: pay attention to their needs. There could be a few short periods of staying away from them. Need to handle that with care and some regular checks in place on their development.


Overall – Great fun until May2012 for sure in 11th Guru. 12th Guru making you quite at discomfort from May2012 to June2013 and 5th Shani making you come out of a messy 4th Shani. Guru 12th effect cannot be understood when you are under 11th Guru! J I think I will write a separate article to make Mithun folks realize the importance of “using” 12th house Guru. The importance of 12th Guru cannot be overstated for complete planning of next 12 years. The one with 12th house Guru was the president of the committee formed to create India’s constitution – what India should do for next several decades! J

3. VRISHABH (Taurus Moon Sign)

Like City Group’s Vikram Pandit you had a great time with career from 2009 to May2010 in Guru’s 9, 10, 11 movement to Vrishabh rashi. Most of the Vrishabh rashi folks got something new in 2009 which changed their profile. May June July 2009 and Dec2009 to May2010 was the tough/stressful but happening period. May2010 to May2011 you got all the benefits of the work done from start of 2009 (Rather Dec2008). From May2011 you entered 12th Guru – this makes you think “what next” – does not matter at what social value chain you are – EVERY Vrishabh rashi person is thinking now –
“What Next” including Baba Ramdeo!
J Jumping in action without planning is not going to help. 12th house (wyay sthan) planets force you to SPEND time, efforts and money on next 12 house movement of that respective planet. Guru has aprx 12 year cycle and hence planning for next 12 years is needed. Reading, studying, certifications, preparing blue print, going back and forth, bridging gaps in the planning is what required from you. From May2012 Guru would enter you sign and it is the time to start EXECUTION of the plan you have put together. It is a great time for image enhancement and social/physical weight gain! J You will see Guru maharaj again helping you in 2nd Guru from June2013.

Guru’s 12th (previous sign) and 1st house (in your rashi) bhraman is a VERY significant effect that you feel and hence wanted to get that sorted out before we move on to Shani’s curve.

Shani in 5th from Sept2009 to Nov2011 was slow but steady achievements for you. It was also a period to help your kids as they need that. It was also a period of going away from them frequently. It was good to study something related to law and order. Shani in 5th also could have made you go thru painful meticulous study which demands a lot of time/efforts from you. Now you are about to enter 6th Shani. The 5th house is about a time bound project, time bound product development. It is a “Go-getter” house. The product/project prepared in 5th house movement needs to be SERVICED and nourished in 6th house movement.

The 6th house is of service sector. The 6th house Shani subjects a person to a servicing someone. The 6th house Shani increases your social clout, increases people reporting into you. It increases cash-flow coming your way. BUT – One thing is certain – The 6th house Shani subjects you to initiatives or projects that YOU find very difficult or they are out of your comfort zone. You are made to work in an alien environment where you need to build new contacts and form totally new relationships and collaborate with unknown folks. This is quite tough and requires some caution and planning and analysis/understanding of new people you are meeting.

For a political leader 6th Shani is very good to increase clout but it usually forces them to go for uncharted territory of masses – social engineering etc. This could be double edged as you got to hold on to your existing base while you want acquire a new one. Even for service or business folks, the 6th house Shani in increases the people working for them. So in short - Vrishabh rashi will earn through masses in 6th Shani.

The cash flow will certainly increase as a major planet is entering Artha Trikon (2, 6, 10 houses of the horoscope) from Chandra rashi. This is a distinct effect of 6th Shani in 2.5 years.

The 6th house Shani especially to lagna rashi shows/uncovers health issues – mostly related to stomach. Ayurveda is your friend in 6th house Shani. Remember any disease in 6th house Shani is related to stomach (intake) and 12th Shani or Guru is related to malfunctioning of outbound stuff (getting rid of material from body.) Although this applies more to lagna rashi – for Chandra rashi also this effect is seen for sure.

The 6th Shani also shows some issues with the maternal family folks. Some long pending issues with mama’s family will need your attention.

As Vrishabh has nakshatra owned by Surya (Krittika 3 charan), Chandra (Rohini 4 charan) and Mangal (Mriga 2 charan) in that order – The Shani effects would be seen first to folks in administration (Sun), senior positions or positions of power, then to folks in people contact (marketing and sales) and then the folks in sports. You can approximately divide the next 30 months in 3:4:2 fashion – i.e. 9 equal parts for 9 navamansh or Charan for Vrishabh rashi.

All Vrishabh rashi folks that I know (a lot) personally for several years – I asked them to recollect how April98 to Dec2000 was in 12th house Shani and 12th Guru from June99 to June2000. It was a double whammy then! J At least now Guru is 12th but Shani will support quite a bit in 6th house.

During June99 to June2000 both Guru and Shani were 12th to your rashi and that made you get completely out of comfort zone, plan and work on something completely new in life for next 12 and 30 years. Now you have somewhat similar situation you had from June99 to June2000 in 12th Guru from May2011 to May2012. (I think Juhi Chawla is Vrishabh rashi – not confirmed – She also did great until April 98 in 11th Shani and Guru and later on her career tapered down and she caught new curve in life – need to confirm though.)

Interesting times indeed! J

4. MESH (Aries Moon Sign)

Anil Ambani, Lalit Modi (IPL), Barak Obama, LalKrishna Advani, Sharad Pawar who are all Mesh rashi folks. They had tough assignments from Sept 2009 in 6th Shani, out of their comfort zone completely. Also they had tremendous feel good and start of new things in 2008 in 9th Guru. They enjoyed tremendous success until May2010 in 11th Guru. They were top of their game and achievements with their plans. After May2010 in 12th Guru they saw badmouthing, going into oblivion, paying off glaring omissions done in the success of 9, 10,11 Guru. They had to plan for next 12 years and almost the whole year they were seen out of action, almost in an exile of 12th Guru.

The 6th Shani however forced them to venture outside their usual circle from Sept2009. Two major planets in 6 and 12 houses is not the best time for a person’s feel good factor. It is too much of a hard work and not many things moving ahead as they want. 6th Shani forced new alliances, new contacts etc and new circle which takes a toll on a person’s psyche to create fresh / new impression.

Now 7th Shani will reduce some of these new contacts and touch with them. This 7th Shani could also reduce your sphere of influence or in simple terms people reporting into you. It will stop a lot of happening feel of 6th Shani until May2012 at least. This Shani could also take you away from your Mom and also wife as 7th house shows wife and the moon shows Mom. Mom’s health could be a concern and you could also see some water loss/weight loss especially after May2012 as until May2012 Guru is only increasing your water retention and weight.

The 7th Shani has drushti on 4th house which is your home & mom. So 7th Shani could make you busy at locations away from home. It also means being away from near and dear ones too.

The 7th Shani will teach you certain lessons in marriage, partnerships and overall collaboration. It will show/expose anomalies in your relationships with spouse and also business partners. It shows some showdown with your direct competitors too. The 7th house is also of long term and BIG wars. (Adolf Hitler had multiple planets in 7th house in Aries Sign including Sun and Mars with Drishti of Shani on them – He started the war when Shani was in Aries I guess and lost it all when Shani was on Shani in 10th house aspecting all these Mesh rashi planets!)

The 7th Shani effect could be lesser not actually but you would not notice them as much until Guru is in your rashi i.e. May2012. The 7th Shani would be more apparent after May2012.

Mesh rashi has a dev-Guni, positively aggressive, initiative taking nakshatra of Ashwini owned by Ketu. They will see these effects in the initial 1st year of Shan in Tula. The second Nakshatra of Bharani is owned by Shukra which is more subdued and mature and less aggressive (tadafdaar) than Ashwini – They will see effects in 2nd year i.e. 2013 mostly and last Nakshatra is only 1/4th in Mesh (Krittika) they will see the effects in last 4/6 months i.e. in 2014. More intense effects would be delivered to Ashwini and Krittika as they are more intense signs creating more intense Kriyamaan karma and also shows desire of the soul to do some specific intense things.

7th house Shani could also mean for politicians and actors etc that you are doing something different than what masses expect from you. The 7th house is of competitors and also people who compliment you but Shani – the karak of masses “opposite” or Pratiyog to your mind shows that your choices would not be liked as much by your mass-base. You can see Mulayam (Kumbh?) going thru this from July2007 to Sept 2009 and Abhishek Bachchan (Meen) going thru this from Sept2009 to Nov2011.

In Short: Adverse situations and hard work, execution until May2012 in 1st Guru. The labh would start from May2012 in 2nd Guru which shows expansion, income, share market results etc. The Shani in 7th house would teach something in partnerships, collaboration etc. You will need to check what your end-customers, partners, masses want from you closely as you could be working on something personal and they want something different. This could affect your career etc but anyways you will achieve what you want to achieve in 2nd Guru on a personal and family front. Take care of Mom’s health and drink water outside carefully. Guru in rashi until May2012 you will see physical and social weight gain.


  1. Hi Milindji,

    For shani badal, you have discussed mostly w.r.t to career and luck in that area but nothing related with health.

    I'm Kumbh rashi and dhanu lagna. Last 2.5yr or so was very tough for me. I had lots of health related issues (joints/arthritis).

    I would request you to shed some light on the health aspect as well w.r.t Saturn transit due in Nov.


  2. Thanks Milind for writing on the Shani transit effects on Kumbh. I am Kumbh born and confirm that last 1 year has been really tough. Lost a high profile and high paying job in Singapore, got forced to India out of no choice....and still counting my options with limited options and never dying attitude.....staying put in Pune.Shani is in Tula rashi (9th house from Kumbh moon) in my birth chart. I want to see you in person. Please let me know how can reach you.

    It's encouraging to see your positive words for Kumbh folks going forward. Its pleasure to read your blog.


  3. Hi Milind - Thnx! I'm kanya rashi going thru a very painful period on personal front...waiting with baited breath what you have to say for kanya rashi folks. If I could be ambitious pls take a look at my email from thnx for all the articles. You keep a lot of folks like me going.

  4. Milind,
    Thanks for coming up with the most awaited article of the year. And more so this time, for putting us pisceans first :).
    Like so many others, I was getting anxious about this transit, since I have sun - mercury - Venus in Libra 7th house and moon Rahu yuti in Pisces. Hence I sent you an email on 20th September as I was already sensing some changes about to take place. This article has provided some good information, but does not address other complications very specific to my chart.
    I would be hugely obliged forever if you could have a look at the mail and provide me some guidance, as this is going to mark the most critical phase of my professional as well as personal life.
    Eagerly awaiting a reply,

  5. Yeah. Thanks for accepting my little selfish (makar) suggestion :) Startting backwards from Meen.

  6. Hi Milind,

    This is Prasad (Vanessa husband). I am here to share my Kumbha Rashi 8th Shani (Ashtama Shani :)) my daughter likes that word...) Experience.

    Knew that it started in Sept 2009 but It seems I started getting heat well before since Jan. Satyam Sega happened in Jan 2009 was first one to hit me. Next is the accident that happened in Jan itself followed by end of my assignment in USA,Surgery on my wifes hand etc.

    I had to move to another account in another state on very last day of the current assignment and end up in selling everything other than my original 3 suit cases. Lost 2003 Ford focus at throw away price.
    Landed in new assignment with a Role.. 'Solution Architect'. well as you said I was put in to development assignments right from first day. No Architect OR Nothing. Suddenly fell down god knows how many levels... Guess what !! Thats when I realised that I am no longer a hard core developer and my eyes can not see debugging cursor moving continuously for 15 to 20 mins and need a break.
    As you said no reportees and at times been made to report someone with around 5 to 6 years of experience.. Developers whom I used to interview couple of years back. I did around 150 OR 180 such interviews. I lost confidence and tend to do some sily mistakes being low confidence. A mistake as sily as to forget including certain DB Scripts in Production go live scripts. Well this was strange but being low confidence I couldnt believe that I can do better. Had undergone extreme stress. Worked almost every weekend during Sept 2009 till Nov 2009 plus sleepless nights. Had gone through health issues where sometime became dizy @work and end up having rash on face due to stress. Entire team of 39 people were rewarded of good work excluding me. Of course I wasnt that bad but I knew that my time is bad...
    Then I had first change. Guru became Swarashi & then 2nd which we call as having (Gurubal).. With some trouble even in movement, I changed project and came to my desired technology (SharePoint) from where I left earlier when 8th Shani started. Then with 2nd & 3rd Guru things were better than earlier(E.g. No weekends, Good Role\Respect.. :) still no reportees but some good increment) But still Mr. 8th Shani my friend is teaching lot of things. Mental Instability was still there. Stress in the projects that I am executing but due to Gurubal this time I had people supporting me to fight the war. This resulted in at least confidence boost. Yes I indeed completed 1 certification & planned one more(Still studying). Got Promoted too. Now I can say, enough of it. Learned lot from 8th Shani. Especially what should be done & What NOT to be done. Need peace of mind URGENTLY... Lets hope for the best. And last but not not least now I am driving 98 Corolla and no more 2003 Ford Focus with Mp3 player, Auto Lock & many more features.... Started appreciating such things now. Its better than not having car at all.................

    1. Must be TCS. Totally Completely Shani!

  7. dear milindji,please post shani transit comments for leo moon sign.waiting for something good to happen after this sade sati.

  8. A VERY GOOD Horoscope! I can't find your email so here is short analysi
    (1) You are moola ascendant owned by ketu and Mangal (blood) in 1st degree of Magha nakshatra owned by Ketu. This shows your desease is also from maternal grandfather side.
    (2) Shani going over currently on horoscope Shani Surya and Guru is NOT helping it is showing what you have! Guru is owner of 1st house (yourself -- overall health owner) Surya is of course allmighty for health anyways. So I guess Sept 2009 to Nov2011 is the time for all health related issues to be exposed and brought to attention...which is good but we feel Shani is "giving" something to us -- actually it is bring it to attention.
    (3) Your Shani mahadasha and Guru antardasha is coninciding with this Shani movement -- So something related to destiny is matching with Shani movement -- effects of this life too! :) Itmakes person completely confused as SOME issues (Kriyamaan karma) can be explained by this life actions but many (Destiny -- Past Karma) can't be ! :)

    I think you can expect STABILITY after Nov2011 but improvement after May2012 when you will start getting much better impact of medicines etc as GURU would be aspecting Shani Guru and Surya in the 10th house of the horoscope.

    You are MOOLA ascendant nakshatra and Mangal blood in Magha -- The total addition of 4 -- does show some past karma that the soul wants to pay off -- PLEASE REDUCE ANGER AT ALL COSTS AND TRY TO FORGIVE AND FORGET ANd TRy to stay happy -- You can see medicines helping a LOT afterwards.....Please do Hanuman Sadhana -- also FIND WAYS that can keep you happy pleasant etc...Always try to SMILE at every person you see -- It is difficult due to MOOLA and Magha BUT not impossible....Your 11 date shows people orientation and popularity -- SO USE IT.....

  9. The above comment was for SS / SIMA

  10. Thanks Vanessa -- and thanks "prathalye" for sharing the experience - it is amazing how these curves of planets espeically Guru and SHani match to the individuals.. I guess the accident etc in India was combo of Gochar + Dasha...

  11. milind sir i am kanya rashi...going thru a really life changing and toughest and painful phase of my life...please give some remedies for kanya rashi folks as they are in the middle phase of sade sati and if possible please reply to my mail as m goin thru really tough and painful time... i have mailed u several times with great hopes please HELP ME!!!...please reply to it...

  12. Hi milindji, just wondering how things will change for me after nov15 myself being a kanya rashi

  13. Hi Milind ji!

    I'm delighted that you have started from Meen...I'm meen :) :). Good advice to keep in mind for the next 2.5 years. Thanks


  14. Milindji ,
    Thanks a lot for writing on Shani badal, a pinpoint described article. As change of Saturn gives a remarkable turn in everyone’s life. I am also learning from your articles. Keep helping people by your articles, you are doing a very very very good job (a good karma).
    I want to note that this time Saturn gives most significant and wide effects (from personal life to worldwide) because exalted Saturn returns after every 27.5 years but this time EXALTED SATURN AND RAHU CONJUNCTION WILL BEGIN AFTER 150 YEARS (start from Jan-2013; last Conjunction in 1865) may be it’s too early to say anything about this yuti, but I will sure you may see a change everywhere start from 2013. But slowly important change starts from Nov-2011.

  15. The misfortune of being libra is you have to wait, even if the reports begin with Aries, or with Pisces. :)
    Anyways, happy dasara to all.

  16. Hi Milind,

    Now its turn for makar rashi, is there any job change for me after saturn transit in,time-3:33AM, place-sindri(bihar). thanks,

  17. Thank you so much for this article.. All you aricles are helping me so much to plan my next few years.

    Looking forward for May-2012!

  18. Hmm... Very career centric. Does not apply to me. But I have a fair idea how my 10th shani will be. Plus 2 year shani antardasha started in May.

  19. Excellent Article. I am of kumbh Rashi .. and 8th house details matches the description as is ... Thank you sir... You rock

  20. thank a ton for the article :)

  21. Milindji I have emailed you and hoping to hear from you soon about my horoscope.....are things going to improve for me or reply please


  22. Sir
    I am having lot of Career Problem (in cross roads). Please let me know, when i will get my next Promotion?
    Thank you Sir.
    DOB : 06-May-1968

  23. Im Kumbha too ! 8th house shani is a force to recon with !! But I am a better person because of it. Glad it will be over soon though !!!

  24. Dear milind
    A great article with pinpoint effects.. –keep writing and helping people . You are doing a very good job (a good karma)
    as you say you are aware of sadesati, it’s good to take preventive action against bad time. There is saying in gujarati “Pani pehla pad bandhavi” means “Built dam Before the Flood”
    but beware, as sadesati on vrishvik is on Metal faze (a tough one) for 5 years. And Rahu Maharaj also joins the party from Jan-2013
    I am also aware of my bad time, but I found, it will hard to stop; eg. if I don’t want conquer with bull it’s good, but bull is always behind me for bang bang..
    Well I learnt too much; the time taught me enormous lessons and it’s good –
    As you are I am also ready for it, just like you I used my best time for doing all good things and my achievements climbing the heights of Everest ; but then after I also ready to go through the desert from top of the world, and this desert storm taught me good lessons of life.
    No matter who you are or how successful you are, everyone has periods of “being down” on life or yourself.
    All the best and welcome in the world of sadesati :)

  25. My favorite poem of Robert frost for you only..

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
    and sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveller, long I stood
    and looked down one as far as I could
    to where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    and having perhaps the better claim
    because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    though as for that, the passing there
    had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    in leaves no feet had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
    I took the one less travelled by,
    and that has made all the difference

  26. Milind,

    Hats off to you. Wonderful article in simple words

  27. milindji
    when will the matter end for
    dob 23-12-1959
    shankhapal sarpa yoga

  28. Yes, also waiting for simha rasi

  29. Milindji
    First off kudos, and pls keep the good work going.
    Secondly for the amount of service you have rendered to so many, even Shani Maharaj will treat you like Vikramaditya,which is different from the conventional story- this one says Vikrama requested Shani to not concentrate all tests at one go but spread them over time so he could take them on and most of all NOT harm his people (kingdom).
    Finally @anonymous simha rasi. Bhai if one thing sade sati has taught us it should be patience. I too eagerly look forward to, but Milindji will get there - eventually. Sharaddha in God and Saboori with Milind.

  30. Hi Pradip
    I am not competent enough to comment, but I like your attitude to life. Something worth learning

    BTW I am Kanya Rashi, in the middle of things enjoying all the action around. Got used to it now

    Thanks Milindji for posting

    After the Death of Steve Jobs, I felt even more: All this any way will end one day. Live each moment to its fullest. Not sure if tomorrow will ever be there .

  31. Milind ji.
    As u r doing a gr8 work for masses, may Shani maharaj will bless u more at the sadesati time. . . And these r coming from the core of my heart.

  32. "Dream come True” 5th Guru from Dec2009 to May2010 ---I think not true for tula rashi vrushabha lagna. 6th guru is not bad.7th guru brought marital problems.

  33. Thank you for the articles. Found them to be very relevant over the past year. How does this particular event affect simha rashi folks?

  34. great work....looking forward to next set of rasi' astro blog ever

  35. Milind ji....Eagerly waiting for Shani Badal effect on Kanya Rashi.

  36. Lolz....
    "3 months pehele mail kiya...ab tak reply nahi aaya.."
    Don't worry Milind, True followers will surely not react in this way, as they will have learnt from your philosophy by now,that, when the disciple is ready, master will appear.
    Keep the great work going, n the blessings of the masses will follow.

  37. Milind
    You said for Kanya Rashi'I hope you do not have too many planets in Tula/Mesh Rasi'.I assume you mean in ones individual horoscope.
    I very much like some of your bold and practical views.GOD BLESS YOU.

  38. dear milind,
    if you don’t mind i want to add one point regarding kanya rashi ( i apologies in advance – if i am wrong)
    I think kanya rashi will go through current situation (mental torture/going no where) till June-2012. (Particularly who have Simha Shani – Born between 1978-79)
    More significant time for the Kanya rashi Folks is from around 30th November, 2011, when Mangal enters another fiery sign Leo (12th from Kanya Rashi). Mangal transits through Simha rasi till around 21st June, 2012. (6 months long)
    Looks like transit of Mars in simha becomes critical, as Mars will have a strong influence over Rahu transiting through Scorpio, a sign ruled by Mars.
    Please correct me..
    (Again Sorry for any inconveniences caused by me)
    God Bless you :)

  39. omkar here
    I am thankful to "shani". my moon rashi is libra and honestly i have become extremely patient and hard working....virtues which were almost absent in me till 2009. now i feel "sadesati" means stage is set for big success provided one works hard

  40. Pradip
    THANKS for the wonderful comments and also the poem. About yout comments about Mars in Leo etc..This article I wantes to keep for SHANI effect MOSTLY and GURU effect lil bit as it IS significant force which can make person feel less captured by Shani! :)


  41. post for kirk rashi...eagerly waiting for it.

  42. Please post for kirk rashi as well.


  43. Hi Milind Sir,

    Thank you for posting on kanya raashi.Past five years has been horrible.Especially from sep 2009,but I was blessed with an opportunity to do my grandfather's seva .He is also a kanya raashi.I think I was destined to do his seva. But sadly we lost him in 2010.Just wanted to share this because your predictions are very accurate.Can't wait for this period to get over.Sir please correct me and forgive me if I am wrong.Wasn't that period 5th guru for me.I felt really good taking care of him.You are doing a GREAT JOB SIR by helping the masses.Shani Bhagavan will go easy on you for all the good karmas you are doing.We pray for your well being.

    Thank you


  44. Hi Milind,
    I am simha rashi and still waiting for your predictions to come true for me[i.e waiting for good times :)].I wanted to have clarification on the phrase - 'Great possibility of going 6 to 8 hrs away location for 2/3 years' what does it mean? I am already far away from my home. Does it mean from home 6-8 hrs away or from the place where I am right now?

  45. Hi MilindJi,

    Just wondering about your last sentence for Simha. So for Cancer sun sign and Leo moon sign folks, does Shani aspecting Ravi dilute effect of sadesati being over (as you mentioned for Uddhav Thakray). I am Leo moon sign and July 27 born too-what type of adjustments do we need to make?

  46. Hi MilindJi,

    Your article on Shani change is really good. I do not understand astrology much but you articles are good to understand because of the examples. I am Kanya rashi and going through lot of tough time. Lost my job and losing my confidence, but thanks for you words i am trying to take it positively but it is difficult....

    Sachin K

  47. This is very helpful sir !! Thank you for sharing with us.

  48. Thanks very much, Milind! This brought back memories of what u had told me about a year back :)

  49. wonderful artical and observation...keep it up milindji

  50. Deep knowledgeful and practicle analysis Milind Sir. Thank you for the article and God bless you.

  51. eagerly waiting for kirk rashi Milind Ji !

  52. Namaste Milindji,

    first of all i am pretty sure that Sani will be slapping you on the wrist rather than kicking you in the B** for your upcoming sadesati. You as a person try to help people the best you can. So you have my best wishes right there. And am also sure that Saturn will hard mold you into a better astrologer to do more good. You will go in like a chrysalis and come out like a butterfly.

    I had sani in the 8th from 2007 to 2009. Other than having to work extra for my teaching certification which was done easily by my class mates, it was really peaceful. I was pregnant and very happy with it. I was studying for certification but those studies were so nourishing for the soul. It was almost meditative. I forgot i was studying for certification and was enjoying just studying new things. Trouble started with 9th Sani which was 12 to my Tula lagna from 2009 till date.


  53. Hey Milind,
    A big thank u for a wonderful post on shani change. Plus, u are keeping the anxiety on for further rashi folks..Reading kirk/Makar was g888(dear ones rashi)..Waiting for Mesh blog..
    -Trupti Barde

  54. Thanks a Ton Milind Ji for i am kirk rashi and the need for 'emotional maturity and analysis of situations objectively – This is tough for an emotional sign like Kirk' part is true to the responsibility to maintain all that is gained till now is BIG ! but as per your suggestion hard work is the best path and i think the sadesati has made kirk rashi folks a pro on this one :) Thanks for the gr8 analysis...God Bless You !

  55. vrishbh ke liye bahut cum likha hai may be you will write more. waiting

  56. Please complete the Mesh rashi part in Shani transit - tension is mounting. Hope to see it by tomorrow.... :)

  57. hi milind ji.
    Nice Blog ever till date for astro.
    Keep it up. Sade Sati is going to End for me (LEO moon).अब तो मेरी भी शादी हो जाएगी ना :P .. Career तो बन गया Shani third phase में ही. शनिदेव को सत सत प्रणाम !!
    Milind ji you rocked !!
    Best wishes for you for upcoming Sade Sati. एक suggestion आपके लिए , हनुमान चालीसा याद कर लो !! :P .
    Thanks and Best Regards
    Mahesh Deora

  58. This is what is nice about astrologers working in IT companies. You know how to keep deadlines. Thanks for the Mesh update - they say forewarned is forearmed.

  59. mailed you my details and question kindly reply...eagerly waiting for ur reply my address

  60. One question - what about ascendant? As in What If I am a Kanya moonsign, Tula Sunsign and Vrischik ascendant? - I have several planets in Kanya and Tula :)

    How much of importance to give to transiting planets? - was born during saadesati - so it definitely cannot be all that bad for me - though from sep 2009 onwards, as you noted, have been the worst phase - and now I feel that its been years that I am going thru bad patch - though probably its been just 2.5 yrs mostly...

  61. Ritika,
    With Tula Sun Sign and Kanya rashi I guess sadesati has a bit more effect on first 2.5 itself Shani also aspected Surya and last 2.5 also Shani will go over Surya...

  62. Milindji,thank you for ur posts that prepare us in advance.I am kanya rashi and have been gaining strength from ur posts during this sadesaati period.So a sincere thank you &good wishes from me to you

    My birth date is 11-11-1982,1:50 p.m.(afternoon).
    I want to know this birthday 11.11.11 is positive for me? and how?i request you to pls write an article on this date

    I have also mailed you.if you get time,pls do reply

  63. Hi Milind Ji, As usual your article throws up a lot of light and in fact a kind of relief when ever I go through the blog and also when you have responded patiently to my email.

    I would to know if shani is already placed in 8th house in a horoscope how does ashtama shani affect them..?


  64. Thanks for the Mesh blog Milind :-)
    God bless u
    Also, today is 17-10-2011 = 4 , a date to be careful as per ur earlier blog ...

  67. dear milindji,

    thanks for this wonderful article. you wrote that you will see my mail
    ASP,but till date no reply. I am a cancer patient in stage iv, i am a kanya rashi folk, these 5 years have been horrible for me, please reply my mail. once again my dob details 12:07:1978; time 4:10 pm. Place: Chennai.
    Regards, subha.

  68. hi,

    very interesting.

    deep insight.



  69. Hello Milindji
    Thanks for the excellent article, as usual.
    Great insights into all aspects.
    I have a doubt, please excuse if it is a silly question
    For Kanya rashi folks: The third phase of Shani's love affair (sade saathi) starts.
    As i understand, since shani is moving to 2nd house, it should reduce money flow, cause financial losses. So a bit curious about the comment that cash flow would increase in the third phase
    Thanks a lot for your time and dedication.


  70. Aniruddha:
    ANY planet when 12 does expense of efforts money etcfor planning, new stuff -- in Rashi execution and 2nd house it starts paying results of the efforts in 12th house and 1st house.....BUT Shani being 2nd it WILL give money for these efforts of 5 years BUT it WILL SHOW ISSUES with existing investments and land, property deals etc etc.

    If there are planets in 2nd house then it wil also EXPOSE existing issues with what those planets show...Aniruddha:

  71. Hi Milindji
    Thanks a lot for the prompt response.
    Of late I had seen lot of expenses , due to some unforeseen issues. ( spending on health care for others, litigations for others )
    So I was wondering, if it was part of Shani slowing down things for the second house (money)

    But thanks a lot for the explanation


  72. For Pradip can you elaborate on your comment on more significant time for kanya from this good or worse for kanya rasi folks?

  73. Analytical and origianl analysis. very good

  74. Hi Milind
    I happened to hop on ur site and I must say ur work is very insightful... I am kanya rashi and taurus ascendant.I have ongoing RAHU/SATURN dasha along with sadesati going on. I was wondering about the last comment u made on kanya rashi-
    "Anyways – things will start looking much better after Nov2011. I just hope that you do not have too many planets in Tula or Mesh rashi"
    I have pluto in libra opposing my aries sun( which is my 4th house ruler)--- Will this be a cause of concern in third phase of sadesati? 'coz i do see the saturn conjuncting the pluto in october 2012. I am really worried about my parents and I would highly appreciate your advice for the same.


  75. Milindji,
    When you say shani badal in tula with affect the ego and self esteem of people born between oct 16 to nov 16, for how long will this effect last? Does it have a different effect based on what raashi the person has? For example when you said about kumbh raashi that get ready for 7.5 years of success but if the kumbh raasi folk was born between oct 16 to nov 16 then what would be the concequences for them and how long would it last? please respond.

  76. Hi Milind, I am Kanya rashi, and things you have said above have happened with me with the same time frame you ve mentioned. I hope Nov2011 will bring some hope to my current situation.
    Thanks for the information.Amazing explanation and good examples too!

  77. You obviously display a deep understanding of astrovidya. Kudos to you for sharing it for free.

    I am awaiting your article on 12th Guru as I am going to be there after May 2012.

    Just as a curiosity, how many years have you been studying this vidya?

  78. Hi Milindji,
    I am Kanya rashi & I have emailed you my queries. Can you kindly respond to it. Eager awaiting your next blog.

  79. Hi Sir

    I have emailed u my birth details
    Awaiting your response


  80. Hello Milind ji-Sorry for being silent observer since quite some time and not been sending my views and heartfelt thanks since a loong time-Reason-I felt there are soo many who are joining and wishing u with the same feel.u are positively popular.Thnak u so much to say the very least
    To others-i would say lets not pressurise Milind as he is as is doing unimaginable and quite excellent job with his pure heart and soul showing in the explainations and help.
    Lets not in a way criticize and contaminate the flow.Rashi phal cud be for certain folks and meaty write ups for others.All classes shud be able to get there "appetite" from this site.
    My personal opinion is the meaty stuff made me hooked to this site some 2 yrs back(dont recall)and Milind's genuine and transparency cemented it.Weekly rashifal are like "side dish" and not really the "meal" and his personal mails to us "sweet dish"……and its not that mine is answered too in pending list but somewhere we shud understand Milind!!Have a heart
    Lets really practice shraddha and Saboori and have faith...even in this.thanks!!


  81. Thanks so much Milind!! I'm Kanya rashi, Tula lagna person. Your blog has inspired me to have some more patience and wait for the good time to begin. I have been neglecting my work since June 2011 (my health had also got affected). Luckily, it has not adversely affected my career so far. I will now try to concentrate on my work and put it hard work so that I can reap the rewards from May 2011 :) Thanks again!!!

  82. Dear Milind,
    One query (not exactly related to this post). Its from my wife actually. I believe the effects of shani in the sadesati and the mahadasha are derived from vedic astrology. but we also take the birthdates 8, 17 and 26 as saturn-afflicted, when these dates are according to western calendar. shouldn't we count the birth tithi rather, and not the birthdate?

  83. Dear Milind:

    Please confirm this line is correct "Kanya rashi has Nakshatra’s of Surya (Uttara Bhadrapada), Chandra (Hasta) and Mangal (Chitra)". As per Andhra's panchangams Kanya rashi has UTTARA PHALGUNI (2,3,4 padams) and Hasta and Chitta (Chitra) but not UTTARA BHADRAPADA as it is a different star. Could you kindly confirm,as my birth star is "Uttara Phalguni" 3 padam. Kind regards, Murty

  84. Murty: THAT is correct -- it is a typo - Uttara Phaluguni is correct -- It is called just as UTTARA and Uttara bhadrapada is called completely...

    Will modify...

  85. Waiting for: "I think I will write a separate article to make Mithun folks realize the importance of “using” 12th house Guru".

    Thanks for all the efforts you are putting, God bless you!!

  86. Dear Millind,

    I was waiting for your comments on the upcoming Shani transit. Thank you soooo much. God Bless You for all the good work you are doing.

    With Best wishes
    Meenakshi Khattar

  95. Hello Milind,

    I find your articles extremely helpful and easy to relate to. I realize you have started updating your blog more regularly now. is it the saturn in your moon sign. ;)
    btw, a quick request, i was trying to find an article on shahrukh which i found interesting a while back, but cannot locate it now. i am quite sure I will find it later, but a request, is it possible if you can separate the "weekly rashifal" to a different section. that way a person like me (read impatient to remember the articles) can locate it easily. :)

    thanks so much.

  96. Hello Milindji,

  100. Milind-dada,
    Could you be so kind as to predict my marriage period please?
    I recently finished my Moon AD in Saturn MD which was very tough.
    Plus I also had my Shani-over-Shani transit recently.
    I am Aq lagna & Rashi with Saturn in 8th house.
    I am out of job since last 7 months as well.
    Pls give your opiniion on when I could land a job as well.

    Many Thanks in advance. God Bless You.

  101. Milind-dada,
    I'm myself a beginner-level enthusiast in vedic astrology. Maybe bcoz of my Sa-Ju close conjunction in 8th House of occult studies.

    BTW your prediction about Yuvraj Singh under the adverse transit of shani over his Mangal in 8th house was bang-on when you said he may have troubles reg blood/injuries etc. We have now heard about his unfortunate lung tumour. Hope he gets well soon.

    I also had my Shani-over-Shani transit recently. Plus I recently went thru my Moon AD in Saturn MD which was very very tough.

    I am Aq lagna & Rashi with Saturn in 8th house.

  108. Hi Milind,

    You have got very good knowledge of indian astrology. Transit effets of saturn, you have explained in great way ! You are rocking !

    As a kumbha rasi person, during last ashtma shani period, I had experienced in verbatim what you have predicted here.

    I have couple of suggestions for your blog:
    1) If you can use chart/graph in some way, your message will be effectively conveyed. I am not sure if this is supported by especially for shani and guru gochara effects.

    2) It will be really great, if you can share your predictions on share market (sensex/nifty) bottom/top for 2012.

    I am sending my DOB details through mail and would be interested in your reading.


  109. milind,
    a couple of things i wanted to ask you based on several of your articles. don't know if i will ever come back to this page.

    1. since you are vrishchik rashi--in one of the articles you had mentioned that vrishchik rashi people have big/some karma to pay off. is this the reason why you are so regular in your blogs now? ofcourse! it's ek panth do kaaj. we as your readership is growing; while you are probably getting karmically light. am i correct? :)

    2. one of your articles on guru badal. i will have my guru in 5th this year, i am dhanishta nakshatra with makar+moon; what is windfall gains for me? i do not know what success sub-consciously i am looking for that will be delivered to me? i do want to have a happy married life+kid, which is ofcourse impossible since i have not even met the right guy. so how do people like me benefit from guru badal when these things are not even in the near future?

  110. Hi Milind,

    The information provided by you is very useful. And is not just few details but with examples and suggestions it's better to understand and relate. I have few questions regarding myself and the years ahead. Will mail the same. Please provide your much appreciated time and knowledge. While the knowledge and details shared here is immense unlike just the brief summaries in few other astrology sites, I wish to suggest that a few pictures or graphs and might be some quotes and inspirational messages could be added on page for better and pleaurable viewability. While I know that you would have many mails to read. I hope you will reply to the mail.

    My concern is regarding my higher education abroad. My DOB is : 26/09/1987. and Place of Birth: Bangalore. Name: Priyanka. I have been successful until now ofcourse, with some difficulties though. But never knew I was undergoing any such Sade-Sati probably because I was not aware till now. Gotta know about it because I started to worry about the uncertainity of my higher education. Will I be able to go abroad for studies with scholarships provided.

    Awaiting your kind reply.


  111. what if there are 3 or 4 planets in Tula ? (for Kanya moon sign person)

  112. I am Vrisbcbika rashi and Anuradha nakshatra. Dhanu lagna in Mula and Sun in kirk Punarvasu. Just wanted to find out. Is there a time period in these 7.5 yrs that will be worse than others? I have heard that one of the 2.5 yrs is worse than the others. Is this true?

  113. Hi
