Saturn, planet of boundaries, karma and success, is in the third pada of Shravana in the zodiacal sign of Capricorn from March 25th until July 24th 2021.
Pada three of this nakshatra is ruled by Gemini navamsha – the underlying chart governing relationships and the subtle body – which here has an especially airy and intellectual tone. The combination of Saturn’s practical and realistic nature and Gemini’s gift for communication makes this an excellent time for long-range thinking and planning.
Your use of and relationship with media becomes lucky and important, and you can tailor your message and reach a wider audience. Public speaking, lecturing and studying are also favoured, as well as mantra-chanting and kirtan, which you can use to affirm your ambitions.
As well as being at home in Capricorn, Saturn also rules the air element, so it is worth thinking big and not limiting your writing and communication – this transit suits a serious and professional approach.
Shravana’s Shakti, or unique gift, is for Connection, which sees you reaching out to people, finding contacts and potentially doing win-win deals. Mercury-ruled Gemini has a gift of commerce and business, so there is a profit motive as well as flirting and socializing.
Shravana is symbolized by the Ear, and symbolizes wisdom and learning, especially through the spoken word, so once again you find an affinity with knowledge, teaching and sharing information.
This nakshatra is also associated with gossip and loose talk, and a lesson may come around tuning out the negative side and focusing on affirmation and constructive talks and planning.
Saturn goes retrograde on May 23rd, when the issues of this transit come around again for a second visit – a plan or desire which didn’t succeed the first time may work more easily after this date.
