  5. Say Goodbye to Saturn...




We can’t wait to bid farewell to Saturn in Scorpio and its difficult effects in the last three years.

In Vedic astrology, Saturn will officially move away from Scorpio on October 26—never to return to this intense sign of Mars for the next 30 years! From Sagittarius, Saturn’s effects on your life will be less dramatic and more helpful.

Saturn rules old age, hard work, perseverance, service, compassion for the poor, delays in career, relationship hurdles, pressure from authorities, and fear in general.

In Scorpio, Saturn was traveling in an enemy sign, bringing great emotion, a need for deep research and causing sudden losses. So Saturn was not showing its best attributes—and this affected us all, as Saturn is the slowest planet and brings many areas of our lives to a standstill.

Progress was slow.

Many have witnessed emotional turmoil and devastating losses during this very long transit.

An exhausting replay of this planetary configuration happened between June and October, as Saturn was retrograding in Scorpio—bringing one of the most challenging times the world has ever seen.

Political unrest and natural disasters were just some of the more visible effects of Saturn, and its menacing gaze on the August solar eclipse in Leo—the house of politics and leaders.

If planetary alignments are signposts for upcoming events, as the sages of ancient India believed—then Saturn’s warning signs from Scorpio were terrifying. 

Saturnine vibes on Leo, the Sun’s sign of creativity, wealth, power and higher knowledge have caused havoc in our private lives, too.

Soon Saturn will acquire Sagittarius’ hopeful and righteous qualities, and we might collectively look skyward in gratitude.

So to learn how to improve your career, relationship, health and finances in the next two and a half years, here for you—some powerful Vedic steps to stay cheerful, fix all your problems and never look back.

The end of fear

While Saturn was in Scorpio, it’s likely that fear became your motivating factor in career, relationships and health. Some major losses might have prompted you to believe that there was no light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

At the end of October and going forward—inspiration, religion, higher knowledge, philosophy, ethics and a desire to improve yourself and society will return in the collective consciousness.

Saturn in Sagittarius also brings matter-of-factly thinking that can restore justice and increase our generosity.

An example of how life might look when Saturn is in the sign of magnanimous Jupiter can be seen in the chart of Warren Buffet—the multi-billionaire who plans to give more than 81 percent of his fortune to charity.



Saturn will bring you a brighter horizon and opportunities, thanks to higher studies and research, respect for religious traditions, wealth through optimistic investments and ethical choices in your everyday life.

Courageously move forward

If waiting is no longer an option, you’ll be happy to learn that Saturn in Sagittarius will speed your progress in both career and studies.

Yet on October 13, Scorpio will lose Mars’ protection as the Red Planet will move to Virgo. And for the following two weeks, Saturn will again be felt as one last hurdle—but you will get new ideas and more details will be revealed, which will bring you new solutions.

It’s important now to be strong and do some necessary cleanup caused by three years of Saturn’s transit in Scorpio.

Mars in Virgo in Uttara Phalguni, a constellation or “fixed star” ruled by the friendly Sun, might bring you help from higher ups.

Breathe deeply—you deserve this lucky change.

Quick fixes

  • The traditional sounds to invoke Mars, ruler of Scorpio will infuse you with much-needed strength and courage. Recite OM MANGALAYA NAMAHA 108 times on Tuesdays and during the Mars hora.
  • Recite Saturn’s mantra OM SHANECHARAYA NAMAHA 108 times on Saturdays and during the Saturn hora to connect with the higher energy of Saturn—bestowing on you great perseverance and compassion.

These sounds are believed to change bad karma by putting a powerfully protective shield on your mind. You’ll then be able to take timely, right actions and reach your goals.

You’ll also be in a better position to bring positive change to your finances, career, and even health.

Get help from the sages

Dr. Pillai’s teachings about remedial astrology remind us that we don’t need to do it all alone—and we can get help, especially when we’ve tried many solutions and nothing has worked permanently.

The greatest help comes from the Divine.

According to the Tamil Siddha yogis, Vedic Gods and Goddesses are powerful and respond to your prayers through fire rituals’ infrared.

Traditional offerings in the fire and mantra chanting are considered the spiritual solutions that work and defy logic. Only experience and amazing testimonials show these remedies’ potency to fix life’s huge problems.

The Goddesses are said to quickly rush to help their children—or humanity—whenever there’s deep sorrow.

They’re said to act like guardian angels removing longstanding debts, insurmountable obstacles in relationship, or delays in your success.

Moreover, these benevolent celestial archetypes are believed to be the bringers of career achievements, financial growth and lasting happiness.
