Ashtam Shani – Adverse transit of Saturn through the eighth house

Free Vedic astrology article.

Continuation of the previous Blog about Saturn transits.

In the previous Blog we dealt with Sade Sati and Pancham Shani, or the transit of Saturn through the 12,1st, 2nd houses as also the 5th house from Moon.

In this Blog we shall take a look at what happens when Saturn transits the 8th house from Moon. When in the 8th house, Saturn not only gives the results of his physical presence there but also of where his three aspects fall.

Saturn’s transit through the eighth house from Moon causes losses and sorrow. One meets disappointments. Infamy and fear from law hovers in the background. Separation from progeny takes place. Life partner’s health causes concern and possibility of bereavement exists. Bad company and gambling tendency causes many problems. These results are favorably modified if Saturn is in Capricorn or Aquarius in birth or Navansh charts.

The third aspect of Saturn falls on the 10th house and separates a person from his profession and status. In other words, one is liable to lose his job and status in society. Professional obstacles increase during this two and a half year period and one is constantly fighting a losing battle.

The seventh house aspect of Saturn falls on the 2nd house of wealth and causes steady erosion of savings. Bank balance gets depleted and credit cards are maxed. Second house is also the house of domestic happiness and it gets affected negatively. The 2nd house is the 8th from seventh and shows the longevity of the spouse. Saturn’s aspect cause health issues to the life partner.

Saturn’s 10th house aspect falls on the 5th house of children and speculation and causes problems connected to both. One’s progeny may experience ill health and health care May require expenditure of money care giving. If the health of children remains intact, then there may be some other problems that cause anxiety to the individual. For these reasons this becomes the worst time to invest for future gains.

Remedies for Saturn transits
