Saturn, planet of boundaries, karma and success, is in Pada Four of Shravana in the sign of Capricorn from January 20th until February 17th 2022.
This is new ground for Saturn, after it moved through the earlier part of Shravana through 2021, and this transit may now signal a new phase of your ambitions. Shravana pada four is ruled by Cancer navamsha – the underlying marriage and spirituality chart – which has a more emotional flavour than the usual all-business concerns, and sees you focus on your security and roots.
Saturn is a worldly and ambitious influence, but you may be taking responsibility for family matters and your own inner wellbeing, and striking a balance between your work and personal life. Your attention turns to domestic matters, where you can channel a strong Saturn energy into creating a stable base, and be the centre that others rely on.
This transit is about soul security as much as professional status. Shravana’s Shakti, or unique gift, is for Connection, so you may also come together with others in a mutually supportive circle, or even set up a formal Saturn-type society of your own.
Shravana is symbolized by the Ear, and represents wisdom and learning, especially through the spoken word, so you may fall back on homespun knowledge from your native tradition or family. This nakshatra is also associated with gossip and loose talk, and you may sort out superficial information from genuine intelligence that you can use in a solid Saturn way.
Mercury retrograde up to February 4th, also in Capricorn, coincides with this transit and gives you another opportunity for a second chance to edit and rethink your priorities.
