SATURN in Libra

Om Sam Shanishcharaya Namah


By Ashok D. Chandak

By Ashok D. Chandak

hani from sanskrit, Kannada hani, Shani/Sani' (Tamil: Sani), is one of the Navagraha which are the nine primary celestial beings in Hindu astrology, or Jyotih. Shani is embodied in the planet Saturn. Shani is the Lord of Saturday; the word Shani also denotes the seventh day or Saturday in most Indian languages. Shanaye means slowly, as Saturn takes about 30 years to revolve around the Sun, which is the longest period taken by any planet. Shani is also known as Shanaishchar, Shanaishchara, Shani Bhagavan, Shaneesvara, Saneesvara, Shaneesvaran, Shani Deva. His Zodiacs houses are Capricorn (Makar) and Aquarius (Kumbh). Shani is a Deva and son of Surya (the Hindu Sun God) and his wife Chhaya (Shadow goddess) and hence also known as Chayyaputra. He is the elder brother of Yama, the Hindu God of death, who in some scriptures corresponds to the deliverance of justice. Interestingly, Shani is the elder son of the Surya (Sun) and the younger Yama (judge). Shani gives the results of one's deeds through one's life through appropriate punishments and rewards; Yama grants the results of one's deeds after death. It is said that when Shani opened his eyes as a baby for the very first time, the sun went into an eclipse. He is known as the greatest teacher and he teaches by bestowing good & the bad time in ones life. Shani dev (lord) is said to be very harmful to those who follow the path of Evil, betrayal, backstabbing and unjust revenge. He is also known in Hindu scriptures as the greatest trouble giver as well as the greatest well wisher. According to Vedic astrology, Saturn is one of the nine Navagraha or planets. Saturn is considered to be the strongest malefic and a stern teacher who represents patience, effort, endeavour, and endurance; and who brings restrictions and misfortunes. However, a favourably placed Saturn on the horoscope of a person stands for a strong career, healthy life and everything positive for that person. In fact, a well-placed Saturn in one's horoscope gives best results in life as no other 'planet' can bestow. On the other hand when Saturn is placed "unfavourably", it denotes troubles during the period of its dasha. Saturn is much feared by those Hindus who believe in astrology, as the "malefic" effects of his being unfavourably placed can be quite severe. The diseases which Lord Saturn curses of at the physical level are - decay, constriction, poor blood supply and at the mental level - narrow mind, low esteem among others. 2|Page

The planet Shani or Saturn revolves around the Sun in about 30 years, which means it passes through all the 12 rashis or moonsigns in 30 years. Thus Shani Bhagavan spends on an average about two and half years in each rashi or moonsign. This movement of Shani through the moonsigns carries great importance in Hindu astrology and horoscope predictions. The effect of Shani starts when it enters the previous rashi/moonsign to one's own birth rashi and stops when it leaves the rashi/moonsign after one's birth rashi. The total period of 7.5 years (2.5 years 3) is called Saadesaati or "Elanata Shani", and is typically a period of great difficulty. When it occurs for a person foregoing Shani Maha Dasha, the malefic effects of the planet are highly pronounced. It is said that Shani can reduce even a king to a pauper during such period. Shani rules the signs Makara (Capricorn) and Kumbha (Aquarius), is exalted in Tula (Libra) and is debilitated in Mesha (Aries). Budha (Mercury), Shukra (Venus), Rahu, Ketu are considered friendly towards Shani or Saturn, while the Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon) and Mangal (Mars) are enemies. Guru (Jupiter) maintains neutral relations with Saturn. Saturn is the lord of three nakshatras or lunar mansions: Pushya, Anuradha and Uttara Bhadrapada. Shani has the following associations: his color is black or dark blue, metal is iron and gemstone is Blue Sapphire. His element or tattva is air, direction is west (where the sun sets and darkness begins) and he rules all seasons. The traditional foods for Shani are sesame seeds or black gram, black lentils or urad, his flower is the violet and he is linked to all black animals and all trees that are considered useless and ugly. Lord Saturn is also known as Judge. He only troubles the person during his dasha for the wrong doings. Even in Shani Dosha, if a person is righteous & devoted, he is sure to come out of this period without much suffering. Lord Shani is more known for his blessings than his ill effects. No other planet (Graha) is comparable with Lord Shani in terms of blessings. He showers with his blessings at the end of his dasha. His Adi-Devata is Prajapati and PratyadiDevata is Yama. Lord Shani tests the person's patience; He tries to correct our immoral acts by creating frustrations, and delays. In the end He makes one conscious enough to understand the mistakes. People born on number 8 are ruled by Lord Shani in numerology. So it is believed that those born on 8, 17, 26 of any month will have effect of Saturn. 3|Page

Saturn in Libra creates a situation whereby everything is set right for good. The present state of world economy is the result of all wrong doings and Saturns duty while in Libra is to do justice with everyone whether a country, an individual, nature, or an economy etc. In my last paper Yes Its Saturn we discussed the hyper effects of Saturn on world when it enters in Leo. The period of transit was 15th July 2007 till 10th September 2009. During this period we have seen the severe rise & fall of stock markets, commodity prices, Real Estate and the financial crisis (boom & doom) in Europe & U.S.A (Western Markets). All these developments have now brought the analysts and the economists to talk about the double dip depression or depression like that of 1929 in U.S and what not. We have experienced the exceptional boom in every sector of economies during 2004-07, when the rich became richer and the poor felt the pressure of highinflation in every part of the world. Edible commodities were in short supply resulting into high price rise and it was due to high demand from India & China as the affluent class was steadily increasing. The demand for automobiles has been increasing 25-30% on year on year basis for over last 10 years in these developing economies. The advantage of this demand has gone to oil producing counties. Oil producing countries have taken away the world resources and the money (resources) of developing, underdeveloped and developed nations. The sudden slow down in U.S & Europe has forced many countries to infuse large scale funds in the name of stimulus packages for the reason that major part of their economy is being sucked by the wars they have been fighting for over 15 years. Now this act has resulted into high liquidity in the monetary system and their excessive fund supply is keeping the inflation high world over. These packages actually have hurt common man as the money so printed has gone into few hands like banks & financial institutions at virtually no debt cost. These institutions as per their presence in the countries have parked this money in developing markets, commodity markets and global equity markets which is keeping prices of everything high. Most of the worlds Governments have forgotten the rules of the economy and playing the games of increase interest rates or decrease interest rates to control the inflation & developments, ignoring the fact that fiscal discipline is more important than anything for a long-term stability. And this indiscipline here will now be checked by Saturn while in Libra. 4|Page

Saturn will be entering Libra on the 15th of November 2011 and will remain there till 17th September 2014 and this will be the period of major reshuffle of power in this world. However, U.S will get a president of substance in their next election and this person will be remembered in U.S history for many decades. Many scandals and scams will be un-earthed in the international politics especially in the U.S.A, Europe and Middle East. I reproduce the paragraph from my last paper of May 2007. An economist of Indian origin studied these cyclical events of past and could predict the future depression & great depression in American economy based on his cyclical calculations. His study revealed the depression in U.S economy in every thirtieth year and severe depression in every sixtieth year. His study earned him good name as everyone was impressed by this new theory and as per his calculations the depression was to come in 1990s for a period of 10 years. However the American Government under the leadership of Ronald Reagan did very well in international politics and resulted into collapse of U.S.S.R. May be they were influenced by his (Ravi Batra) theory and started working to save the economy. Ronald Reagan was successful and could delay the depression for many years. China learned the lesson from Russias faults and could understand the requirements of society and the intentions of the super power. Merely in 12 years the Chinese Government increased industrial production to meet world demand and this intelligent move made them a developed industrial nation with 1.3 trillions of trade surplus of U.S dollars. (figures of year 2007). America (Mr. Ronald Reagan) successfully delayed the depression by 15 years and enjoyed the boom during nineties and became supreme power after the collapse of U.S.S.R. The credit for this delay goes to Mr. Ronald Reagan. The dot com burst happened in 1999 followed by the housing scam in 2008. The depression of 1929 in U.S.A should not be compared with the present financial crisis, America is undergoing for the simple reason that 1929 was different when economies were not globally connected. India and China are blamed for the soaring fuel prices, commodity prices and shortage of other commodities whereas it is the effect of the free printing of Dollars or the excessive liquidity in the global financial system. This excessive liquidity in the name of stimulus packages by Europe, U.S, Japan, China and India has created demand for every thing world over and the large funds are heavily invested in commodities in the name of hedging, which has resulted into higher prices and short supply or vise a versa. Large manufacturing facilities are being created in the developing nations and this eventually has brought development in the countries with 5|Page

highest populations (China & India) thus demand for oil, steel, cement, edible commodities has gone up. It is well known that during the period of un-certainty it is safe to have reserves in Gold rather in any currency. People have seen the fate of currencies like Rouble, Zaire, Afghani & many in the past. Thus glittering gold will enjoy its demand for at least till 2012-13. Time will come when international trades will be settled with payments in Gold. China has already realized the problem with U.S and the dollar & has started alternative investments out-side China for the simple reason that they want to liquidate the dollar reserves and acquire trades outside China. This action will eventually put more dollars into the international financial system and will fuel demand & inflation. All these acts are going against the international financial system and the bubble is becoming bigger day by day. The situation is so grave that nobody has a tool to fix this problem except that to deal things on day to day basis. Eventually the year 2012 will get a place in every book of history of world crisis, misery and this may become an unforgettable year of the century. I would call it the year (2012) of total pessimism. The Saturn the lord of Justice while in Libra will burst the bubble of economic offences and suddenly everything will come in place to start a new chapter. Saturn is the planet which does not believe in un-lawful or illegal affairs thus it must set right everything in-order during its transit into Libra and the period would be from 15th of November 2011 till 17th September 2014. However its effect can be felt at-least 8-10 months in advance of 15th November 2011. The dictatorship process started in thirties (1930) and it is in the last leg of full cycle 1930-2020. This is also part of 30 years cycle of Saturn (30X3), in the first cycle (1930-60) dictators won and got elevated, in next 30 years (1960-90) they were settled to rule and in the last 30 years (1990-2020) of cycle they will get out of the system (king to a pauper). The process of getting out of system started in 1990-91 after the break-up of Russia into several nations which brought Eastern Europes dictators out of power. You will see this full circle of 90 years completing in 2020. The dictators of the world will be settled down in the yellow pages of history. The excessive of anything either economic or nature (natural resources) would be dealt by Saturn while in Libra. Major mining set back could be seen world over in its period of transit. Gold prices to be affected (negative) badly during November 2012 August 2013. 6|Page

IMPACT ON INDIA: Saturn is the lord of justice and it will start the process of diluting dictatorship in Indian political system also. People will become more and more powerful & intelligent class of people to join politics to serve the nation and not just themselves. I shall mention some of the events took place during the transit of Saturn in Libra 30 years back (6th October 1982 to 17th September 1985). Do not feel that Saturn in Libra will bring any good to India except that Indian people will get a good Government and the governance with some transparency. I would like to mention some of the events during Saturn in Libra in eighties. 1. Entry of Swaraj Paul to Indian markets only for takeovers in late 1982 to broad base his empire in India, 2. Operation Blue star 5th June 1984, 3. Assassination of Indira Gandhi on the 31st October 1984 followed by sikh riots, 4. The biggest Industrial accident / disaster took place in Bhopal (Union Carbide) on the 2nd-3rd of December 1984, I dont think that any of the above events can be said were good for India thus my feel remain that next 2-3 years will again be the period of major events or major crisis for India. The agitation (Dharna) which started by Anna Baba on the 5th of April 2011 has some meaning & relation with his astrological chart. He was born on 15th of June 1937 and he is in the last lap of shanis sade sati (Saturn 7 years effect) and this has landed him to Tihar Jail (Central Jail) for 3 days without committing any crime. Saturn has shown its effect and will again show in the months to come. The cause of his fight is great and we see him successful in his mission but I am not happy with the effect of last lap of sade sati specially on his health. Apart from the fast or silent agitation one should worry his health condition in the months to come till 15th of November 2011. Nobody could expect that a follower of Gandhi who has been successful in all his missions in the past could be sent to jail. Yes this is Saturn and it has done it, however my worry remains for his health till November 15th 2011. The agitation initiated by Ram Dev on the 4th of June 2011 was Saturday and no agitation can be successful if initiated or started from Saturday. Probably it was a move without thought and Saturn has done justice in tarnishing his reputation both in public and the Government. Any work or assignment being started on Saturday takes a very long time to complete or finish, even the wars. The process 7|Page

of clean politics has started world over and Saturn while in Libra will do many good to set it right in many countries. Annas popularity to increase manifold and his movement will take momentum gradually in 2011. 1. Regional parties will slowly become weak, 2. The next election will be during the period of Saturn in Libra and a person with clean image will lead the nation, 3. Saturn while in Libra will affect those who enjoyed power and remained un-touched (Corrupt), 4. Corrupt (people in powerful position) will be affected badly, 5. Core sector industry will see mergers / takeovers, 6. Auto industry will be affected badly and so will be banks in 2011-13 June, 7. 2012 will be the year of pessimism as everything will be grounded thus best time for the investments, 8. Un-employment will be the cause of worry, Anti social activity will be on rise in 2012-13. 9. Loss of human life will be on rise due to accidents and natural calamity. 10. The Indian film industry to loose a few of the best actors in 2012-14 and will undergo crisis, 11. Some of big Industrial houses will undergo huge crisis, 12. Equity markets to remain subdued during 2012, may see lows thus best time get into, 13. Auto industry will do well from mid 2013 onward for another 7 years, GLOBAL IMPACT: European economy will be in its worst during 2012-13 while Saturn will be in Libra and will be passing through depressive market conditions and that will affect every developed nation. Major corporate houses will be in trouble and so will be employment. This can be understood from Saturn movement shown in Impact on America. The unrest kind of situation in many countries will eradicate the global terrorism and these terror outfits will remain busy in their home country. It may take few years for their demand to cool down and 2020 onward everything looks good.

Employment crisis will become severe by September of 2012 and many nations will face the heat of the people. Excessive rain will be felt in Asia, Europe and North America in 2012 and so will be cold. Aung San Suu Kyi will come into power during the period of Saturn in Libra. IMPACT ON AMERICA: America will get a president with pragmatic policies and that will help overcome crisis and slowly economy will start moving upward after 2014. Barack Obamas popularity and rating will keep going down and major effect will be after November 2011 when Saturn enters the Libra. The next president will stay in power for two terms. It cant be said that transit of Saturn into Libra is bad for U.S.A or any other nation but it certainly denotes that it will set right everything or fix everyone for their deeds. Here is the chart of last 120 years of Saturns transit into Libra and its period of stay in Libra is as under: 08th Dec. 1893 19th Nov. 1896 Moon / Anuradha & Saturn / Chitra th Oct. 1923 30th Sep. 1926 16 Moon / Moola & Saturn / Chitra 25th Nov. 1952 13th Nov. 1955 Moon / Poorva Shradha & Saturn / Chitra 06th Oct. 1982 17th Sep. 1985 Moon / Kritika & Saturn / Chitra 15th Nov. 2011 3rd Nov. 2014 Moon / Poorva Shradha & Saturn / Visakha What is most notable is that during last 120 years, the Saturn for the first time will move into Libra under Visakha Nakashtra which is 16th Nakashtra of the total 27 and its lord is Jupiter whereas the lord of Chitra remain Mars. This particular change ensure that whatever wrong the mankind has done in last 30 years will be set right by the supreme power or the planetary power. Barack Obama will not be re-elected in the next presidential election. Visakha Nakshatra may elevate a women president in the United States of America. The charts of probable candidates will be studied when made available. The charts of Ms. Sarah Palin, Ms. Michele Bachmann and Ms. Hillary Clinton are studied and the best comes of Ms. Michele Bachmann. Every sixth year of Bachmann remains exceptionally good (comparing the past) and the order is 1982, 1988, 1994, 2000, 2006, 2012 and 2018. I will write separately on this subject however her birth chart remains strong and she has strong possibilities to lead the nation.

IMPACT ON EUROPE: Today, the euro is one of the world's most powerful currencies, used by more than 330 million Europeans in twenty-three countries. The countries currently using the euro are: 1) Andorra 13) Luxembourg 2) Austria 14) Malta 3) Belgium 15) Monaco 4) Cyprus 16) Montenegro 5) Estonia 17) Netherlands 6) Finland 18) Portugal 7) France 19) San Marino 8) Germany 20) Slovakia 9) Greece, 21) Slovenia 10) Ireland 22) Spain 11) Italy 23) Vatican City 12) Kosovo, Only 17 of the 27 members of the European Union (EU) are part of the Eurozone, the name for the collection of EU countries that utilize the euro. Notably, the United Kingdom, Denmark, and Sweden have thus far decided not to convert to the euro. Other new EU member countries are working toward becoming part of the Eurozone and this is just to attain the strength from the neighboring countries in the period of crisis. After the collapse of Russia, to overcome the supremacy of U.S dollar a few un-friendly Arab nations persuaded European countries to have a common currency for global trades. The Arab silently endorsed their faith in the western world in the nineties and to find a substitute for the U.S Dollar. It was a good move on the initiation of some of the dictators of Arab and the member countries joined the union to secure business from the member countries but after the end of Saddam era, it has become a problem for the union to maintain parity, however problem became bigger after they joined the world in subscribing stimulus packages of their own to overcome the slowing economies. One should not forget that they will also pay for the excesses they have jointly or collectively committed during last 11 years of their existence. It will not be the fall of Eurozone but the fall of nations at large. Europe is more or less, dependant on the U.S policies thus supremacy of U.S will continue. Russia will fare well and will gain strength during the period of Saturn on Libra. Vladimir Gusinsky may get some relief from the Government during the period 10 | P a g e

By Ashok D. Chandak

of Saturn in Libra. Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Gusinsky were born in October 1952 with 16-18 hours of time difference, thus moon become repulsive due to its position in respective charts. There will be some dilution in its position immediately after November 2011 and something positive can be expected for Vladimir Gusinsky. Saturn has played major role in the success of Vladimir Putin and Russias success during 2000-2008. Putin took over the presidency in Saturn dasa and in last lap of sade sati thus one can say it will be good time for both Putin and the Russia. IMPACT ON ARAB: SYRIA: If you look into the history you will see that Saturn entered in Libra on the 6th of October 1982 where as its effect started well before (almost 9 months) and the massacre in Syria started in Hama town killing over 25,000 people in February 1982. Similarly now Saturn is entering in Libra on the 15th of November 2011 and the democratic movements have already since started March 2011 (same nine months) and Saturns effect can be felt in the region. Hundreds of thousands of innocent people are being killed in Syria so far. The time for Bashar Al-Assad is not favourable and he may get out of power by or immediately after 15th of November 2011 if not before. LIBYA: The fate of Libyan President Col. Gaddafi has made him un-popular among his own people and the region will see fresh air of democracy before the beginning of 2012. Gaddafi will become weak before October 2011 and will try to compromise with the people of his country. This move will make him surrender or leave the country. Time is short for him. SAUDI ARABIA: Saudi Arabia will emerge as a strong power within the Arab world and will dominate the regional policies of the Muslim countries. Saudi Arabia will remain a strong country for several years from now on. IMPACT ON CHINA: A country with 10-15% of growth on year on year basis since 1988-89 will feel the pressure in 2011-12 and its economy is at the highest risk. In Todays time no business in any country in the world can start without an input from China, whether it is trading or manufacturing raw material. It is same like no two nations can fight a war without the supply of war head equipments by the west. China has large scale participation in every country and in every activity and its slow down will have its own impact on the world economy. One should not see this effect in negativity as it is essential to start things new. In last several years China did not allow its currency to appreciate against major currencies to enjoy 11 | P a g e

global leadership and to remain cheap on price tag for its products. Time has now come to pay the price for this supremacy. In 2012 when Saturn will be in Libra it will not spare even China. They will also have to set right many of their over doings or wrong doings. They will get the lessons for keeping the economy over heated for several years by ignoring the rules of balance economy and for which America is equally responsible. Corrections in life are essential and so in economies. Vertical travel can take you into the space but not to the destination & similarly vertical rise has its own risk and China grew vertically in every activity during last 25 years. China has expanded manufacturing capacities of major products beyond their own requirement just to capture the world demand. Now when the world demand shrinks it is China who will be affected the most. China has been aggressive and to avoid slow down during last few years they extended credit facility to America without considering the long term consequences. To avoid the slow down China parked surplus funds in ailing American economy. Thus in the coming melt down in 2012 China cant blame America for the wrong doings as they themselves are responsible for bringing America to the present level of trouble. Finally China will do what it was required to do 8 years back and this is simply because of Saturn in Libra. Some of the effects I see on China during the period of Saturn in Libra will be: 1. Full scale un-employment in China during 2012-13, 2. Many small & large scale Industries will be shut down or will be adversely affected due to slow down, 3. Second round of demand for democracy to start during Saturn in Libra, 4. Excessive rains / floods to affect country in 2012-13, 5. Poor banking systems will be exposed, 6. Realty and equity markets will be affected badly,

IMPACT ON AFRICA: It will be a good period for the African countries and in next 30 years (full circle of Saturn in twelve zodiacs) looks good for them. They will enjoy foreign participation in their economy with large investments. The dictators of many of these African countries will either get out of power or will change their attitude. The loot of Africa will slowly go down. The major beneficiaries of this period will 12 | P a g e

By Ashok D. Chandak

be East African Countries (Kenya & Tanzania), Ethiopia, Nigeria, South Africa and very few on western coast region. Things will be better in the eastern region. I do not know how to predict the natural calamity like Tsunami or earth quakes but one thing is sure that Saturn will deal with all the excesses of human beings thus prediction like loss of life can be given here during the period of Saturn in Libra. SUGGESTION: 2012 will be under total control of Saturn and everything will look bleak with no future and that will be the time to take positions in which ever the trades, business or activity anyone is, considering the position of Saturn in ones chart (his or her own birth chart). This will be the year of total pessimism. Those being affected by Saturn should chant the mantra Om Sam Sanishcharaya Namah to overcome the negative effect of Saturn.
