Saturn is in pada three of Dhanishtha from January 17th to Feb 14th 2023, as the planet of boundaries, karma and success moves back into the sign of Aquarius.
This is a repeat of Saturn’s transit from late April to mid-July last year, and your experiences from Spring and mid-Summer of 2022 come around again for a fuller test.
You have received notice of the amount of effort involved in reaching your goal and may have felt slightly awed, but the process begins again in earnest as you push into a new domain and different rules of the game.
Dhanishtha pada three relates to Libra in the relationship and good fortune Navamsha chart – Saturn’s sign of exaltation – which brings you underlying balance, maturity and wisdom. Though your workload steps up a level, you are also rewarded more fully and your efforts uncover a new opening which comes about by pure good fortune.
The Shakti, or special gift of this nakshatra is also ‘To Bestow Wealth and Fame’, so the reward on offer is worth the added responsibility and all your extra hours. Dhanishtha is linked to music, in particular rhythm symbolized by The Drum, and as well as Saturn’s discipline this underlying Venus-ruled pada gives you flair and expressiveness.
You keep to your artistic task and maintain a kind of professional pace or rhythm in your march to the top. Cultivating good contacts at work is part of the promise on offer and you can enlist other people’s help and work together in a professional and harmonious way.
Saturn moving with diplomatic Venus from January 22nd sees you moving with a smart romantic strategy as you bring people together in a shared purpose.
