Saturn-Rahu Maha Yoga:
One of the rarest conjunctions in astrology is Saturn & Rahu placed together in the same sign of the zodiac.
This is a rare conjunction since both these planets are slow moving.
This conjunction happens once in 18.5 years and lasts for about 18 months.

1.Effects of Saturn-Rahu Maha Yoga:

The results of this conjunction can be quite detrimental or at least significantly obstructive yet very important and potent.
However the effects can be very positive too under certain conditions.
Rahu doesn’t have any physical body and is said to have a nature that is in some ways similar to that of Saturn.
Rahu mainly exacerbates and complicates the characteristics of the sign and house he occupies in a horoscope and also aligns itself with the nature of any planet it comes in conjunction with.

Hence in the case of Saturn conjunct Rahu in a birth chart, Rahu works as double Saturn in the chart and this can be of much serious effects.
However there are many positive exceptions also.
For instance, when Saturn is a Yoga karaka planet or is the ascendant lord and is placed with Rahu in a trine or quadrant house [while the lord of that house is either exalted or in own sign, without any other affliction], then this Saturn-Rahu conjunction creates a massive Raj Yoga.
Further, a well placed Jupiter in the birth or transit chart can easily and effectively moderate the negative effects of this yoga.

2.How the yoga forms & which house are involved in your birth chart in its formation:

Saturn-Rahu Conjunction Maha Yoga is present in your birth chart.
This Maha Yoga is located in Gemini sign in the 10th house of career from your ascendant in Virgo sign.
Since Saturn is the lord of the 5th and 6th houses from ascendant, the effects of the yoga will be related to your ascendant [all areas of life], the 5th house [imagination, intuition, creativity, judgment, social life/love affairs, marital life, investment decisions, and matters related to progeny] and the 6th house [service career, enmity, obstructions, quarrels, debts and ill health].
Due to the placement of Mercury [the lord of ascendant and of the Maha Yoga house, 10th house] square to Saturn-Rahu combination, many other areas of life will be influenced as given below.
Mercury [ascendant and career house lord placed in the 7th house of relationship from ascendant] will further influence the events and areas as given above.

3.Principles on which Maha-Yoga operates:

Saturn is a planet of law & order and of strict discipline and obedience [albeit imposed obedience], while Rahu is the planet of breaking rules and of limitlessness in thoughts and actions and does not accept any boundaries or impositions.
Therefore a person with such conjunction [Saturn conjunct Rahu] has strong tendency to go against the rules, laws, customs, conventions, religions, social directions or sanctions.

Saturn is law abiding and a planet of disciplined karma but Rahu has much obsession for getting immediately everything it wants or desires and is ever ready to resort to adopt a short cut in life.

These opposing trends of these two planets make a person’s life uncertain, unstable, and inconsistent and possibly even the person himself may remain clueless about his own idiosyncrasies and the trends and targets of his life events.
He may miss out on the opportunities to improve his life as he often fails to look back and introspect on what and how much he has lost and what and how he can salvage from the lost opportunities to rebuild his life.
If he gets a strongly supporting and positive Mahadasa at such stage he will be a different person, almost magically, that will give him the vision and tolerance needed to recoup his life.

4.How to best Harness Maha-yoga:

Saturn is a secretive planet and Rahu placed with Saturn enhances this inclination.
Therefore one can get involved [consciously or otherwise] in many shady, dubious or deceitful actions or deals or even in unscrupulous activities, many of which may be of unfair or illegal or illegitimate nature.
In the simplest form this combination can generate a tendency to engage in petty politics at work place or within family or in social life.
In extreme situations these activities may include conspiracy, major secret dealings, and other clandestine activities and may even include political maneuvers or even espionage.

Thus in order to harness the good effects and avoid or restrict the bad effects, you will need to remain focused on utilizing the disciplining influence of Saturn.
You must develop good working ethics, an open minded and well organized approach to all important activities and events of your life, take rational care of all relationships and shun your ego and combative inclinations at your work place or at home or society.

You must go through all the normally necessary steps, and honor and obey all the laid down or implied rules for achieving anything and strictly avoid resorting to shortcuts in any area of life.
Any major or lasting issue will naturally need a major or lasting effort to get sorted out and to improve your life.
Else your sufferings can only be postponed while later these will surely get multiplied.

Precise and timely communication and total obedience, discipline and regularity in your work will be consistently necessary.
Offer honest cooperation to get cooperation and opportunities for growth.

5.Suggestions on what to avoid:

The Saturn conjunct Rahu Maha Yoga strongly promotes the Shad Ripu and can easily overshadow your good sense of judgment and propriety, and can lead you to the wrong path of mundane weaknesses that invariably aggravate our problems [sometimes after giving momentary pleasure or satisfaction].
It is extremely important that one should make every effort to avoid the evils brought in by Shad Ripu [six enemies].
These six enemies are the six mundane weaknesses which stop us from progress and from realizing our true potential.
They are
1.Kaama: Desire, including sexual desire.
2.Krodha: Anger.

3.Lobha: Greed and avarice.

4.Moha: Delusion - getting caught in Maya, trying for temporary goals.

5.Mada: Wantonness & lust.

6.Maatsarya: Jealousy.


Only Lord Shiva can give relief from this yoga.
Worship any one Jyotir linga out of the 12 situated in India. Mahakaleshwar, Ujjain, India is considered the most potent and prompt in giving good effects.
Alternately chant “Om Namah Sivaya” every day as very frequently as possible, the more the better.
Even silent chanting will do.

7.Times in life when Maha-yoga effects would manifest [next ten years till 31 Mar 2026]:

During the next ten years till Mar 2026, you will not enjoy any Mahadasa [main period] of Saturn or Rahu.
You will go through the Maha dasa of Jupiter during this stage of your life till 01 Jul 2028.
Yet the effects of the Maha yoga will occur throughout the next ten years but in a restricted manner and degree.
On the other hand, the period from now till 01 Mar 2017 [part of sub period of Saturn] and the period from 06 Feb 2026 till 31 Mar 2026 [part of sub period of Rahu] will offer more specific effects of the Saturn-Rahu Maha Yoga.
During the balance period 02 Mar 2017 to 05 Feb 2026, any possible negative effect of the Maha Yoga will be somewhat balanced out by the presence of sub periods other than from Saturn or Rahu and also due to some positive locations of transit Jupiter from both ascendant and Moon.
Thus the support of other sub periods under the present main period of Jupiter and also of transit Jupiter must be made full use of.

Though the period till 01 Mar 2017 will face some obstructions and delays due to Saturn sub period, these will be somewhat balanced out by excellent transit position of Saturn in the 3rd house from ascendant till 27 Oct 2017 but this positivity will be reduced by transit Saturn in the loss house from Moon sign.
Overall mixed results will operate till 27 Oct 2017 but you will remain happy, satisfied and in good health with your family.

From after this date till Jan 2020 you will see the sub periods of Mercury and Ketu.
Mercury is very weak and Ketu is ill placed in the house of home life with Moon.
Thus health issues and some differences within home life as well as problems related to property may develop.

At this stage transit Saturn will be in the 4th house from ascendant, square to Mercury and opposite to natal Saturn.
Thus problems related to home, residence, other property, domestic life, overall health, marital relationship and any occupation [if you have at this stage] my face obstructions and new demands.
But you will have the opportunity and ability to sort these out due to good support from transit Jupiter but slightly less during mid 2020 to mid 2021.
Period from 2020 to 2022, you will see sub period of Venus who is strong but no auspicious for your chart.

Transit Saturn at this stage will be in Capricorn and will not help.
This phase can bring some health issues but nothing serious is expected.
Take care of vision and urinary system.
On the other side some unexpected inflow of wealth may or may not be possible.
Do not wait for it, if it comes, it is good but otherwise fine too.
From 2023 to Mar 2025, you will see sub periods of Sun and Moon and both of them are afflicted.

But transit Saturn will be extremely favorable for all matters in the 3rd house from Moon and in the 6th house from ascendant.
Health may get affected by minor common ailments repeatedly but overall this period will be very satisfying and positive.
From Mar 2025 to Mar 2026 [the end of 10 yr period], you will see sub period of Mars and despite being exalted Mars is not favorable or safe for you.
You may face unexpected quarrels, get suddenly excited and take wrong decisions and lose money through haste.

This is a time to remain calm, avoid social life, drive carefully and engage in regular prayers.
You should have a broad and serious outlook.
Emotional and spiritual maturity will develop quite well at this stage.
