The Jupiter-Saturn opposition announces a favourable period for you

Saturn, the slowest moving planet in space, will be transiting in its exalted sign Libra, after a period of 30yrs. It will be in opposition with Jupiter, which is transiting in the fiery sign, Aries on 14th November, 2011.

A strong Jupiter in one's chart indicates that the person has a good character, is idealistic, optimistic, far from materialism and possesses an urge to search for truth. The person has the capability to give a sound judgement, is wise and knowledgeable. Jupiter symbolises expansion and joy, bestows zeal and confidence. It is the planet that indicates possibilities and promises. Whereas Saturn, the farthest planet of the solar system is a karmic planet. It symbolises limitations, boundaries, and personal responsibilities. When Saturn is in Libra, the person craves for equality, justice, fairness and balance in life. Saturn?s aim is to make the native gain a perfectly clear understanding of the purpose of his or her life. Saturn symbolises patience, forbearance, self-control, restraint, discipline and accountability.

Saturn is in the 10th House in Rahul Gandhi's chart. Saturn will be transiting over his 4th House in which Jupiter is placed. Hence, the transit is very important for him. He will gain great fame and power during this cycle.

Saturn and Jupiter are considered to be opposite in nature. While Jupiter symbolises expansion Saturn indicates contraction. Jupiter brings optimism while Saturn imposes pessimism. Jupiter bestows joy while Saturn inflicts sorrow. Thus, the conflict in judgement or the tug of war will be more obvious during this transit.

Saturn in Libra will be in opposition with Jupiter in Aries from 14th November, 2011 to June 2012. Those with a strong Jupiter in their chart should remember that expansion is on the cards but if expansion is considered keeping proper boundaries in mind, the result will be more favourable.

A strong Saturn will bestow upon the native wisdom, and will help in making decision regarding the priorities of life. It will teach the native to be organised, have genuine expectation from life, be mature, realistic and have a balanced state of mind. It will help the native to plan goals with a more realistic approach.
