Saturn...The postman of bad time

The Postman Always Rings Twice – Saturn as the Harbinger of Future Tough Periods of Life

Part of the above heading is the title of famous Hollywood movie of the 1980’s written by James Cain. The plot of film refers to fate catching up with the perpetrators of a crime even though they dodge the justice system. Saturn, as the greatest dispenser of divine justice as per Vedic astrology, reminds us of this fact that dodging human justice system in a person’s lifetime might be possible, but escaping it altogether is impossible. In addition, Saturn in his divine capacity, also delivers justice of ‘questionable’ karmas of previous births which were committed knowingly or unknowingly. This is what makes it the most feared of all the astrological planets. Thus the stage is set for the desire of mankind, with some people in particular, who believe it is possible to know if he/she would have to undergo some sort of ‘painful’ period as a punishment in lieu of paying the ‘dues of previous births’. And ‘painful’ periods they are without a doubt. In short, how do we zero down on the information that gives us some advance indication of the stark inevitability we have to face with minimum hardship?
The obvious big question then is that, is there a way to troubleshoot and build a defense mechanism for oneself, if such a knowledge has manifested itself in advance. To know this let's discuss it today. How does one estimate the anticipated time of arrival of ‘bad’ period for himself/herself (we are talking from the perspective of person concerned which has nothing to do with ultimate right or wrong in present or previous births)? Can one save himself/herself and his/her family from an ‘evil’ crisis in time by the use of astrological horoscope? Applied Vedic astrology, books and scriptures emphasizes that the best recourse, if time permits, is to change course before the ‘bad’ time arrives or to perform certain rectifying actions in advance. Once ‘bad’ events have already taken hold (as per Vedic astrology the so called ‘bad’ times are directly resulting from actions/combination of group of planets which are inimical to each other or are placed in ‘bad’ houses), then there are no remedies. That is to say, one cannot unring a bell. But time permitting one can certainly hit the snooze button. Simply stated this is called the solution. It is likely that in other times it may not be possible to avoid ‘harsh’ consequences even if advance knowledge clear points towards trouble down the road. But some actions can certainly minimize harsh consequences and in these circumstances it becomes the plausible solution.
According to the principles of astrology, Saturn is considered as the harbinger of ‘bad’ times. Curious reader should note that Saturn's itself does not harm individuals but is the indicator of tough times to come. Many a times, Saturn is wrongfully blamed for ‘bad’ things happening but the truth of the matter is the inimical/‘bad’ placement of other planets in different houses are also responsible. (The basis of Vedic astrology is pegged on the fact that all planets are in a constant state of motion and all possible combinations of so called tough periods in person’s life can be identified after a very detailed study. The easiest thing to do is to identify Saturn’s placement in various houses that invariably achieves the similar results). This is where the parallel with postman, in our case, comes to light. For us, Saturn position needs to be evaluated in two horoscopes (two rings need to be heard to reach a meaningful conclusion). So if we are getting a sad notification by telegram, what could be the fault of the postman who delivering that telegram? Why shoot the messenger? Why should he be put under bad light for it? Again, if there is any sad news on the phone, how can one hold the Telecom Department responsible? According to legend, when the divine division of responsibilities of planets was occurring, Saturn was accorded the role of a ‘postman’ who would deliver the bad news. As a natural consequence of this, Saturn got labelled ‘bad’ news. In each of the tough situations, he would be standing there already. Slowly Saturn became the thorn in all the eyes and with it was the fact that neither his face is good looking (In Vedic scriptures, black is considered to be Saturn’s color) nor his speech would signal anything optimistic (He opens his mouth and only bad things are heard). Under these circumstances, it becomes difficult to explain that Saturn is not doing this on his own free will but these are things directly emanating from the responsibilities of his department.
The Maraka (the destructive planet), the Maraka period (the destructive period) and the transit of different planets in various houses, go into making up the ‘bad’ event/period. Also, people who have blood relationship with the person in question and the various steps he/she has taken to mitigate the ‘bad’ period, also decides the ultimate outcome. Rain cannot be stopped, but if time permits, one can arranged for an umbrella. But any informed critic would not believe in this mumbo-jumbo. For such individuals, who have an inherent spirit of fighting under the most adverse of circumstances, this might appear as a monumental waste of time. To quote a Hollywood spaghetti western, such people would put it as: “If you have to shoot, shoot don’t talk”. Common sense states that life throws up situations where there is no need of a spear. A needle very well can do the job. Conversely, using the proverbial phrase one can also say, a stich in time saves nine. Why would a person fight on a later date when the problem can be immediately sorted out by little effort? Great kings, leaders, traders, etc. have seen ‘bad’ times. With all their resources they could not escape from the grip of those ‘bad’ times. But if those people had access to some sort of prediction for such challenging times, they could have at least made an effort to ward off the ‘bad’ times. It so happens that position of planet Saturn in the horoscope is a good indicator of those ‘bad’ times. Anyway, let us know how to look at the status of Saturn in various houses which can tell us about foreboding times. Again, not to overstress the fact and I will emphasize again, Saturn only signals that Kālakhaṇḍa (foreboding times). The full effect of ‘bad’ times depends on Bhavpati (lord of the house), Mārakēśha (Maraka lord – the destructive planet lord)), Lagnēśha (the Ascendant lord), Daśāśhēśha (lord of the planetary period cycle) and planetary transit of other planets with their placement in the zodiac. This information is also required to know how much leeway these planets give in saving a person from going otherwise into a complete downward spiral during the ’bad’ times.

Let us discuss some elementary basics of Vedic astrology. This postulate form the basis of this article. From the Lagn horoscope (D1 – birth chart), Lagn (the Ascendant’s house) is you the person and the eighth house (counted counter-clockwise from Ascendant) is considered to be house of pain and adversities. The potency and type of that pain depends on the behavior of Aṣhṭamēśha (lord of the eighth house). From the Navamānśha horoscope (D9 chart) identify the Rashi (lord of the house) and Bhava (house number) of this Aṣhṭamēśha (lord of the eighth house). When Saturn begins transiting Aṣhṭamēśha Rashi (lord of the house) and Bhava (house number) then it will be the beginning of tough period for all the Karakas (Mārakēśha, Lagnēśha, Daśhāśēśha).       
Similarly, the second house of Lagn horoscope, is considered to be house of the father's maternal uncle. It is also the house of person’s parental wealth. Counting counter-clockwise in the Lagn horoscope, Aṣhṭamēśha (lord of the eighth house) from the second house is the Navamēśha (lord of the ninth house). The transit of Saturn through the Rashi (lord of the house) and Bhava (house number) of this Navamēśha in the Navamānśha horoscope forebodes ‘bad’ times for the father's uncle and the parental wealth.
Third house of Lagn horoscope is the house associated with younger brother sisters, stepmother and courage of the person. The Aṣhṭamēśha (lord of the eighth house) from the third house is the Dashmēśha (lord of the tenth house). The transit of Saturn through the Rashi (lord of the house) and Bhava (house number) of this Dashmēśha in Navamānśha horoscope forebodes the arrival of tough period for those people.
The fourth house of Lagn horoscope is considered to be house of happiness related to the mother and home, and with the appearance of Saturn in this Ekādaśēśha’s (lord of the eleventh house) Rashi and Bhava in Navamānśha horoscope amounts to challenges associated with them.
The fifth house is associated with person’s children, grandfather, wife’s brother(s), sister’s husband and brother’s wife. This is the Dvādaśēśha (lord of the twelfth house). The transit of Saturn through of Dvādaśēśha Rashi and Bhava in the Navamānśha horoscope is a harbinger of pain associated with these people.
The sixth house is associated with person’s maternal uncle, paternal uncle and Lagnēśha (lord of the Ascendant) is the Aṣhṭamēśha here. The transit of Saturn through the Rashi and Bhava of Lagnēśha in the Navamānśha horoscope forebodes the arrival of tough period for the aforesaid people.
Likewise, the seventh house is associated with the spouse, mother's mother, father’s elder brother, etc. indicating that Saturn transit for the Rashi and Bhava of Dwitvēśha in the Navamānśha horoscope indicates problems for them.
The eighth house is the house of elder brother’s mother-in-law, father’s elder sister, etc. and Saturn transit through the Rashi and Bhava of Tritvēśha in the Navamānśha horoscope helps in identify challenges associated with these people.
The ninth house belongs to father, mother’s brother, person’s younger brother and sister's husband/wife and Saturn transit for the Rashi and Bhava of Chaturvēśha in the Navamānśha horoscope helps in identify challenges associated these persons.
The tenth house is associated with person’s mother-in-law, employment, etc. and Saturn transit for the Rashi and Bhava of Panchmēśha in the Navamānśha horoscope should be seen.
The eleventh house is associated with elder brother, elder sister, Father's younger brother or/and younger sister.
My effort is to dispense away the old ideas and inject it with fresh ideas. The jist of this article is arrived at after experiences of 15 years of my study. And if that has touched your mind or simply made things bit clear, then do please comment. Waiting for your valuable opinion towards this article
