Retrograde Saturn Effects:
In Vedic astrology, the retrograde planets are generally considered malefic. It is believed that a retrograde planet gives repeated results and can also give twisted or unexpected results during its retrograde position. Saturn as we know is the planet that rules Karma. Usually, when Saturn goes retrograde, the slow planet seems to be slowing down further, and it makes reflect on such our family, our personality, and our career more. The retrogression of Saturn is a good time to take into account all our past behavior and accept that we may have to pay for our karmic debts and misdeeds. This isn't all that bad because once everything is sorted and all our karmic debts are over, you can feel much better.
So while Saturn being retrograde can seem like a period of stress, hurdles, agony, and boundaries, it is important to remember why Saturn is being retrograde and what does it want us to learn in our life? If we make necessary changes in our life at our work, family, and in our personality, then Saturn’s teachings are over and Saturn will no longer trouble us for we have learned our lesson that Saturn wanted us to learn the hard way.
When Saturn goes direct that would be the culmination of all our efforts, penance, prayers, and punishment - something we can are keen to behold. Let us move the discussion further on Saturn and its results whenever it is in retrograde position. For instance, if Saturn is your ascendant lord, then this can give some health troubles to you and can also make you egoistic and twisted in mind/personality. and it can also make us very lazy and make us even commit sins. Saturn rules karma or actions and retrograde Saturn can make us do negative actions sometimes.
Sage Bhaskaracharya, who was a great Vedic astrologer spoke of eight types of planetary motions. 5 which are commonly known: fastest, fast, medium-paced, slow, slowest motions of planets. And apart from these 5, there are retrograde, semi-retrograde, shifty motions of planets. Semi-retrograde and shifty are types of retrogression itself.
Just like Vipareet Raj Yog, which gives results which are Vipareeta (out of the blue, sudden, unexpected, and twisted). Saturn when retrograde in the birth chart or in transit can give unexpected good results. Especially if in the birth chart of the native, it is in a bad placement, retrogression can cancel out that negativity and give sudden good results. In that case, Saturn’s malefic traits get decreased. Saturn is considered more harmful when it is stable and direct sometimes. But one can only say for sure after looking at a birth chart completely and after analyzing it fully.
