Dear ABC,
 
Thanks for choosing www.indastro.com

We have been providing astrology consultation and advice on true vedic principles on the internet since 2000 and serviced over a million customers with our free and premium services. We have prepared Maha Yoga & Comet Transit Report
 
A.
Jupiter and Saturn are two major slow moving planets and produce lasting impact on life events during their transits.
A_1:
Jupiter:
Jupiter, the planet of expansion, causes increase in activity in both good and bad areas of life.
Jupiter takes approximately twelve years to revolve around the complete zodiac.
Therefore, it takes a year approximately to transit over a sign.
In Vedic astrology, the happenings of events are observed by different Dasha systems and transit of Jupiter boosts and makes one motivated to do the things in the concerned sphere of life.
So even when the transit may be the same for persons who share the same planetary combination but the events may differ as it is deciphered by Dasha, which may differ from person to person.
Jupiter is a benefic planet and so it makes us feel good about the significance of the house or the planet to which it is transiting.
If we expect that Jupiter would bestow us with wonderful gifts, we are sure to be disappointed.
It just motivates and increases the confidence and joy in the concerned area of life.
Problems arise when we overdo, and are so confident that we ignore reality and don't think of consequences.
Jupiter gives the benefits and it is on you to grab the opportunities to reap those benefits.
Don’t wait for things to happen for us.
Instead one should be aware of the potential for doing and polishing over the details to feed our optimism.

A_2:
Saturn:
Saturn, the planet of contraction, causes significant effects that may appear to be painful at a glance.
It takes approximately 29-30years to complete the zodiac circle.
So it takes about 2.5 years in one sign.
Since it is the slow moving planet hence its results are more effective and seen as it takes more time period to manifest its result.
Since it a slow moving planet, the things concerned with that house or planet to which it is affecting, get slowed down--we encounter delays, frustrations, and pressures.
But these times also challenge us to face reality, thereby offering us much wisdom and even freedom.
Significant decisions are often made during this transit.
Saturn is famous as a planet of depression.
But it is not the fact.
In Vedic astrology it is known as planetary clock.
When in transit, it influences the house or planet and it gets activated and produces the result.
Now it depends on your personal birth chart to which house it is signifying.
In some cases it gives benefic result too.
Since it is also significator of mass so many politicians get public recognition in its transit.
In any case Saturn is planet of maturity so it gives experiences and lessons to the house it is transiting and blesses one to learn to how to manage the affairs of that house.
That is why it is known as a great teacher also.
But such effects contribute very positively by making one more competent to face and improve one’s conditions.
 
B:
Retrogression:
At times all of them [Jupiter, Saturn and Venus] move in “retrograde motion” [apparently backward motion].
During retrograde motion the planet passes through a point thrice that is why it is also called as triple transit.
So the event is likely to happen again or need repeated efforts in the area of concerned significance.
Then it may also happen that a delayed work may get completed or a work that may be moving gets delayed.
In any case, the happening going on that time also attains the reverse motion.
In general Saturn becomes more malefic while Jupiter and Venus become more benefic while in retrograde motion.
However the natural behavior may change with respect to any particular chart.

C:
Rahu and Ketu:
On the other hand Rahu and Ketu are two very sensitive calculated points but they do not have any physical mass or existence.
Rahu is known as Ascending node or the Dragon’s Head.
Ketu is called as Descending Node or Dragon’s Tail.
Rahu and Ketu take about 18 years to complete the zodiac cycle thus gets 1.5 year stay in one sign.
In Vedic Astrology Rahu gives the effect of Saturn and Ketu gives the effects of Mars, the dictum states “Shani vat Rahu, Kuja vat Ketu” means Rahu acts like Saturn and Ketu acts like Mars.
Rahu is “The Giver” and Ketu is “The Taker”.
This is indicated by the house and position of these planets in the birth chart.
Rahu attracts the blessings according to the house it occupies and Ketu robs of coveted prizes.
Rahu gives much opposition and respect for the area by house where he is transiting.
There is popularity in this place with optimism and cheerfulness.
Ketu is an ambition for power but can give poor timings.
However their effects are very important and cause profound influences on the life events during their slow but always reverse motion through the zodiac.
Rahu and Ketu being always retrograde in their motion, when conjunct with other planets then the events related to the subjects matters are reversed, restored, regained and compensated.
The transit of Rahu and Ketu is very mysterious and they have strong bearings on the events.
The transit of the Nodes through the houses of the birth chart should be noticed, as they will have powerful effects.
This adds to new acquisitions according to the nature of the house.

Effect of Saturn’s Transit in your horoscope:
Saturn and Rahu will transit Libra together for quite some time and these combined results are given in a later paragraph.
Presently transit Saturn is exalted in Libra is 9th from ascendant [philosophy, thoughts, good luck, fortune, good acts, legal matters and father], 4th from Moon  [home life, mother, education, property, domestic life], and 11th from the Sun [social interactions, elder siblings and source of material gains].  
You will need to focus well on these areas and correctly observe, perceive, analyze, understand, interpret precisely and only then you can utilize opportunities properly.
 
Due to his position in 9th from the ascendant,  is generally dedicated to self-improvement. You will develop your ideals and commitments. Ideals and spiritual goals that you may have taken for granted or worked with for many years suddenly seem superficial or not particularly useful. If you have been studying or going for training, it is suggested to look for what you are  working towards. Does this line of study match your profile? 
This period makes you to have a closer look at, and re-assessing,  attitude and confidence.
 At the beginning you may feel a little somber. The blind faith or optimism that may have carried  to date comes up for inspection.  The spirit that drive and motivate to move out and beyond the everyday grind comes up for inspection. By the end of the period, you will have re-worked your spirit, and come face to face with what it is that offers us hope and optimism as well as that which fuels your drive.  if you work hard at self-improvement, you will then replace your old spirit with a re-generated one. You will be one step closer to knowing where you are headed, and you will have re-built faith in self. A shaky feeling that causes  to sputter and avoid risks will be replaced with a more mature attitude towards adventure and facing the unknown. There will be letting go off self-defeating attitudes that have been holding you back and you will recognize exactly where you have been overdoing your expectations, and  find new ways to nurture faith, hope, and vision.
 
 
Due to transit of Saturn in the 4th house from Moon  seems to bring out feelings of 'being in a rut'. Emotionally there will be feeling vulnerable and low self esteem. Lonely, moody and temperamental. Difficulty in expressions of love towards and/or from you.
Sense of humor is lacking in daily life.
You will be more concerned about financial security. Stretched thin. Strained family relations. All around conflicts between family, love and work.
This Transit challenges you to bring all that is in discord and chaos into harmony and balance.
If you want to take any decision related to property -usually not a good time to buy or sell a home.
This period is known as shani dhaiya.
 
 
Due to his position in the 11th house from Sun,  will present many opportunities for achievement. At this time you will be able to strengthen many areas of your life so that they can withstand adversity later. But you have to take control of this moment. Nothing will be given to you without some effort on your part. You will have to exercise considerable care and responsibility and pay attention to what others require of you and the commitments you have made to them. This is not a 'lucky' in the ordinary sense of the word, but it can be exceedingly fortunate for you, if you work hard to make it so.
This period is very strongly related to one of two other periods in your life-- either the last opposition of Saturn to your Sun, i.e. nine or ten years ago, or the last conjunction i.e. four or five years ago. In either case, the activities that you began at that time have overcome their initial crises and now are running very smoothly. you are in a position to achieve many of the goals that you set for yourself then, if you work at it.
Recognition by others, particularly persons in authority over you, may come now. Do everything in your power to be worthy of that recognition, for it will help you later. At this time you have more patience and perseverance than usual. You are able to work in a disciplined and careful manner and make your work enduring. This is an excellent time to tackle difficult and demanding projects.
Even your health is better than usual, but that does not mean that you should abuse it. Instead, you should be building up your strength. In the not -too-distant future you will need your good health, so don’t waste it now. In general this is a time of successful preparation for climaxes and periods of crisis to come. How well you are able to deal with the future depends largely upon what you do now.
 
Transit of Saturn conjuncts natal Mars
This is often a time of enormous frustration, when you really feel as if you are beating your head against a wall. It can also be a time when you accomplish a great deal of hard work. which it will be depends on how you handle the energy of his transit. Its basic meaning is 'inhibited energy,' but it can be 'disciplined energy' if you don’t try to do too many things over too broad a spectrum.
On the negative side, the energy of this transit can produce  feelings of intense  irritability. The least little thing seems to set you off, and unfortunately you are often confronted with considerably more than "little things". People or circumstances seem to get in the way of whatever you try to do. at work your boss or employer may oppose your ideas without giving any real reasons. Or he may saddle you with so much work that you don’t have time to do anything else.
Sometimes  you will get involved in the most acrimonious ego disputes with others. It may be tempting to chalk this up to some kind of plot against you, but that is probably not the case. It is more likely that-- even with the best of intentions-- you put some energy  that is threatening, you must try very hard not to make people feel threatened. Also you may be the victim of other people's aggressive intentions without any obvious stimulus on your part.
This transit can affect your health. It seems to coincide with accidents, especially bone injuries, and illness such as arthritis and rheumatism. If you are subject to such illness, take good care of yourself during this period.
The problem with this period is that your energies are being curbed.  You should take on only projects that are limited in scope but that require great exertion and concentrated effort within that scope. If you use concentrate your efforts on relatively narrow objectives, you can make constructive use of this energy. but if you proceed with grandiose and far reaching plan, you will probably encounter the worst effect of this period.
Don’t act sullen and bitter, even covertly, for that can bring about an equally angry and bitter response from others. If you don’t deal with these feelings within yourself, you may become the victim of cruelty.
 
Transit Saturn 11th to natal Sun
This period will present many opportunities for achievement. At this time you will be able to strengthen many areas of your life so that they can withstand adversity later. But you have to take control of this moment. Nothing will be given to you without some effort on your part. You will have to exercise considerable care and responsibility and pay attention to what others require of you and the commitments you have made to them.

Transit Saturn 11th to natal Mercury  makes your thoughts settled into stable patterns, and not very much is changing in your mind. But you have discipline and concentration, which enable you to get a great deal of work done. You have a clear ideas of what you want to achieve intellectually, and you are willing to work for it. this is an excellent time for any long - range planning that requires great attention to details. It is not so good for the kind of planning that requires you to see the larger scope all at once and handle it as a single system. This transit favors any kind of work involving organization and restructuring. It is excellent for most business transactions, especially those requiring carefully thought out plans for development. It is not so good for risky or speculative investments, because your level of intuition is lower than normal. It is also a good time for serious study and difficult mental work.
You have a very serious cast of mind now, that is, you approach everything seriously. You want to get your work done, and you aren't interested in playing games with people.
Your views about the world have reached a point of stability, so you act from a consistent position. You believe that you understand what the world is about and you operate on that basis. Obviously this can create some problems. If your mental patterns become too fixed, you close out viewpoints and opinions that will help you grow. Narrow-mindedness is a danger with all the transits of Saturn to Mercury. Saturn can either organize your knowledge into its most useful form, or it can cut you off from knowledge through intellectual rigidity.
This transit sharpens your critical faculties. Your standards are very exacting, and you are likely to judge everything by them. Consequently you are very quick to see exactly may become an excuse for nit-picking and narrow-mindedness. You can too easily learn to see the flaws in everything before you see the strengths, which makes your world seem a great deal more imperfect than it is.
Another point you should keep in mind is that there is a very small difference between stable patterns of thinking and being in a rut. In a few years, if you become rigid then then your problem will be greater than before. On the other hand, if you use this time to stabilize your thinking without becoming rigid, you will be better able to withstand future challenges.

COMET ISON due to its close proximity to and possible grazing of the Sun.
The comet ISON is moving through the sign Cancer and will go through Leo and will finally be in Virgo till it reaches the Sun.
It can modify the electro-magnetic radiations emanating from the Sun before these reach the other planets and the earth.
This modification of electro-magnetic field of the Sun reaching the earth can make some changes in your energy level or the way you react to various events of life and can also influence your communication and judgment in various matters of importance.
Thus it may be advisable to not overexert yourself or speak in haste or take important decisions without allowing sufficient time for judgment of the results of your actions.  
Energy, stamina, confidence and judgment will be high between 17th Oct 13 & 16 Nov 13 but you must use them in a controlled way as otherwise you may act too aggressively when not required and may not have enough much opportunity or judgment or energy when required urgently.
After the 16 Nov 13, there would be a significant increase in your opportunities for career progress and financial success till mid Dec 2013 but take care to avoid being hasty or mean in your thoughts and actions since such inclination may develop suddenly and can be harmful for you.
Some degree of aggressive tendencies in professional relationships will remain through this transit.
There could be rash or impulsive actions and speech and the anger and dislike towards colleagues and superiors could continue.
This trend only not end here and some hidden or latent frustration can turn into anger at any later time.
Such anger can definitely spoil your good luck since you are likely to be combative in your utterances and actions.
Avoid these or you will repent later.
Any avoidable expense or any sudden investment spree could easily lead you to wasteful expenditure or to wrong investment decisions and can cause loss and leave you short on money during this period.
At times you may feel quite uncertain, confused and lonely and at such moments try to be in open spaces and with nature.
Take a brisk walk daily.
