Transit of Saturn

Saturn is a huge planet, farthest from the earth compared to other planets in the cosmic realm. It is a slow-moving planet, so slow that it spends around 2.5 years in each sign. It is one of the most feared planets in astrology, because it is associated with restrictions, challenges, denial and delay. Nonetheless, Saturn can give positive results if placed in 3rd, 6th, and 11th house from where natal Moon is posited at the time of birth.
