Saturn, planet of boundaries, karma and success, is in pada two of Dhanishtha from December 14th to Jan 17th, in the last part of Capricorn.
This transit sees Saturn cross the area it covered first from mid-March to late April, and then again in retrograde motion from mid-July to early September 2022.
Third-time around with this planet is often decisive, and a plan you been backwards and forwards with through different takes this year, now reveals whether it is on track and worth the effort. Fate may have the final say, but try to accept the outcome either way and move on from the experience positively.
The second pada of Dhanishtha relates to Virgo, in the relationship and good fortune Navamsha chart and brings you an underlying analytical quality, with a gift for smart handling of day to day business. Saturn rewards your ambition and executive ability, and raises the bar to a point where you have to push yourself further.
Make your operation smoother and eliminate waste without compromising your overall sense of purpose. Dhanishtha is ruled by the Ashta (eight) Vasus, the auspicious wealth-givers in Vedic mythology, and Mercury-style intellectual property rights may be a useful long-term goal.
The Shakti, or special gift, of this nakshatra is also ‘To Bestow Wealth and Fame’, so you have promise of taking the spotlight and getting full credit for your contribution.
Dhanishtha is linked to music, in particular rhythm symbolized by The Drum, and Pada two’s precise, metronomic beat sees you communicating and spreading your message more widely. Use the Drum as a pulse or a marching tempo in your rise to the top.
