Saturn, planet of boundaries, karma and success, is in pada three of Dhanishtha from April 29th, as it moves into the sign of Aquarius.
The third pada of this nakshatra relates to Libra in the relationship and good fortune Navamsha chart, which is Saturn’s sign of exaltation and brings you an underlying sense of balance, maturity and wisdom. This a doubly fortunate position for Saturn, though your work load steps up to match, and you find yourself with awesome responsibilities at home and in business.
You have a vision for what to do once you have achieved your personal goals, and your mind turns to collective and idealistic dreams which you carry out with others. 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 pulse or rhythm in your march to the top. It’s also vital to enlist other people’s help at this time and cultivating good contacts at work is part of the promise on offer.
Dhanishtha is ruled by the Ashta (eight) Vasus, the auspicious wealth-givers in Vedic mythology, which gives you a measured ability to make the most of every opportunity.
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. Saturn sits alongside assertive Mars through this transit, which sees you striking a balance between the long game and wanting to have everything straightaway.
Keep your end goal in sight and use all your diplomatic gifts to steer around a collision course with someone else’s ambition.
