Saturn, the Lord of Karmaphala will go in retrogression on 23rd May 2021 at 14:40 hours in Capricorn in the Nakshatra of Sharavana till 11th October 2021 for 142 days. Saturn is the lord of 10th and 11th house in the Kaal purusha horoscope and also badhak (hurdle creator) as 11th lord and follows strict discipline. Retrograde Saturn indicates the fructification of past karmas. It’s time for evaluation of our good or bad deeds of our past.

On 23rd May, the day lord, Sun is in Taurus, afflicted by Rahu & Ketu. In the natal chart of India Saturn is transiting 9th house and is lord of 9th and 10th house. Thus issues related with 9th house like Religion, Judiciary, Foreign Treaties, Holy Books will take centre stage as Mars is aspecting Saturn placed in 10th house. Nadi astrology considers retro planets affecting the previous house also, now Jupiter placed in Aquarius sign; thus both Jupiter and Saturn will be activating Gemini, Libra and Aquarius (3rd, 7th & 11th signs of zodiac) respectively. The activation of three signs (25% of zodiac) will give pace to slowed economic activities in the coming months. The stressful dasha of Moon-Saturn also coming to end in India’s natal chart on 02/07/2021 also indicate better days ahead. Overall the 142 days of retrogression may provide some revival to our staggered economy.

Saturn retrograde means Past, Present and Future totaled into one i.e. if someone has done bad things in past equally bad events will happen to teach a lesson; similarly good things will happen to people with good past karmas. The malefic effects of retro Saturn can be nullified substantially by donating mustard oil and black daal to old and needy persons. One should always give timely and proper remuneration to all workers/subordinates/servants.
