|TRANSIT EFFECTS OF SHANI IN LIBRA i.e. THULA RASHI
The transit of the planets in Western astrology is considered from the 'orb' and aspects caused to the cuspal mid points as well as to the planets' position in the birth chart. The Hindu method of finding the transit results is from the transit of the planets across moon-sign (rasi). The major planets Shani (Shani), guru (Guru), rahu (northern node) and ketu (southern node) are considered. Extra-Shaniine planets i.e. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are not considered in Hindu astrology. Brihat Jataka says, "Mukya saptaha" (important 7 planets). In this article the transit of rahu and ketu are not explored as the results are similar to the transit of Shani and kuja. Further, they being shadow planets, do not exactly give their 'own ' results - but reflect the results of the planets aspecting /conjoining them.
Transit of Shani is always most feared one. There is a saying in Sanskrit, "If you can tell that the problems are due to Shani, you have already learnt astrology! "Some astrologers, priests get on well due to Shani! Shani in ardhastma (4th) produces separation from family members, passing away of mother or her equals. Unhappiness, problems related to purchase of properties. In the saptama (7th) position he would cause separation from family members, delay in marriage or discard in married life, ill health to wife. The native will be prone to accidents and will have confinement in bed due to this. In the astama (8th) position, he gives disgrace, humiliations, loss of popularity, poverty, failures in all fronts. In the 12-1-2 positions (popularly known as sade-sathi) he causes hospitalizing, separation from family, untimely meals, lack of rest and sleep, loss of name and a sense of left alone in life. Financial and familial problems, mental worries also will be there. Shani during his adverse transits will cause sufferings due to any in-born tendencies.
Any health problems during such periods will have a tendency to prolong. Similarly, 10th Shani gives anxiety, misunderstandings in the professional circles. In 6th shani causes weakness and infections due to break down in immune system. Anxiety, mounting loans, losses due to enemies, penalties from the government, and no help available in time. Trusted friends, relatives not available at the time of need. In the 8th, he causes failures in all fronts, unhappiness, disputes with elders. In the 12th shani gives ever increasing expenditure. Wasteful investments, worries related to children.
There are certain points called vedha points. When shani transits in the 5th, if there is a planet (other than ravi) in the 11th, the adverse effects will not be felt. There are no vedha points for 4-7-8-10-1-2 transits. If Shani is a functional benefic in the chart, the problems (though they seem to be so) will put foundation stone for good progress later on. Depending on the affliction, shanti by recitation of certain beeja / veda mantras several thousand times to some simple mantras which can be recited by the native can be used. Rudrabhisheka, service in temples, keeping good company is better.
08.02.2012 to 16.05.2012
Retrograde - Thula
17.05.2012 to 25.06.2012
Retrograde – Kanya
26.06.2012 to 04.08.2012
Direct mode – Kanya
19.02.2013 to 09.07.2013
Retrograde – Thula
03.03.2014 to 22.07.2014
Retrograde - Thula
03-11-2014 Shani enters the Virschika rashi.
Shani transits in Thula rashi from 15.11.2011 to 16.05.2012 and from 05.08.2012 to 03.11.2014.
Retrogression starts when Shani is away by 251° from Surya and the direct motion is resumed when Shani comes close to Surya by 109°. Retrogression is apparent phenomenon, no planets track backwards in its orbit. When your car accelerates, the car beside you seems to recede backwards, though both cars move in the same direction. Some panchangas give different dates for the entry of shani into thula. As a matter of fact, Shani has already transiting in thula rashi, if you ask any astronomy student. There is no ambiguity about that date. Hindu astrology uses a deduction factor called ayanamsha and hence minor differences are seen in the date of entry, depending on ayanamsha employed.
In my humble experience, the planets in retrogression give 'stay' order! Nothing happens - neither good nor bad - but the issues are kept on low flame. They do not go away either. For those having benefic transit, the results will be withheld. There will be respite from evil transit for those who suffer evil effects. Shani's transit in 3rd, 6th and 11th from rashi (moon-sign) brings good results, provided there are no planet/s (other than Sun) transiting in the 12th, 9th and 5th respectively from moon-sign. Similarly, for those having evil transit in the 12th, 9th and 5th, the planet/s (other than Sun) in 3rd, 6th and 11th respectively give relief from evil effects.
Anga Shani, murthy nirnaya methods are not reliable. Transit effect can also be considered using astakavarga of Shani, which depend on individual charts. It is more technical in nature and is beyond purview of this article. Though shani is bad in other houses (other than 3, 6 and 11), the WORST transits are 4th (ardhatama shani), 7th (saptama shani), 8th (astama shani), 10th (dashama shani) and 12-1-2 transit (sade-sati).
If you are born in Makara, Kumbha, Thula and Vrishabha rashi or lagna, you need not have to worry - no matter whatever the position of shani be in transit. You will not suffer any harm at all. You need not have to implement any remedial measures. If shani is causing delays in any aspects in your life - due to his association, aspect etc., - you are not exempt and should perform shanti to speed up the fructification of results. That is independent of the transit.

You should not put up your papers unless and until you have a clear appointment offer from another employer.
