Saturn chills in Virgo!

Today's transit of Saturn from Leo to Virgo is a great relief for all zodiac signs. Saturn is at its worst in Leo, an inimical sign, owned by Sun, a deadly enemy of Saturn.
Sun and Saturn are father and son, but mutual enemies.They are opposite to each other in their nature and qualities.Aries is where the Sun is exalted, it is here that Saturn is debilitated. Again Saturn is exalted in Libra, where Sun is debilitated. Sun is the ruler of East, whereas Saturn reigns over the West. Sun is aristocratic and the King, Saturn denotes labour and servant-class.
With an intolerance of the highest degree between them, Saturn's transit in the Sun-owned-Leo in the last two and a half years had every reason for causing shudders in natives, especially in their sade-sathi (seven and a half saturn), kantaka Sani (Saturn in 7th house), ashtama sani (Saturn in 8th house) and ardhaashtama Sani (Saturn in 4th house) and people who are running their Sani Mahadasa. All the natives belonging to Kataka, Mesha,Kumbha,Makara, Rishabha etc. have every reason rejoice. Vrischika Rasi, Mesha Rasi and Kataka Rasi are on the list of favourites of Saturn throughout its transit in Virgo.
Due to the bitter enemity between Sun-Saturn, the past two and a half year transit of Saturn in Sun's house has not been able to yield the best of results in favour of the so-called benefitting rasis like Mithuna, Meena and Thula. Saturn would have been capable of much more good from any other house as transiting planet in 3rd, 11th and 6th houses.
Saturn's grand entry into friendly Virgo (owned by Mercury) today to stay there for the coming two and a half years will cause overall good results for all zodiac signs, because the planet itself is heaving a great sigh of relief, after staying in an enemy's house for two and a half long years. All we have to do is to imagine how terrible we would feel if we had to stay in an enemy's house. What good can we do even if we are supposed to be favouring a chosen few (like Saturn as transiting planet of the 3rd, 6th and 11th houses?) The minute we are able to escape from the confines of an enemy's house, we will be so happy, we would end up smiling at everybody, whether they live in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th house from our residence, that is the kind of relief we all would feel! Saturn is sure to exhibit the same kind of relief and bestow His choicest blessings on all Rasis!
"Divakara Thanujam", the Krithi for Sani composed by Sri Muthuswami Dikshithar in the raga Yadukula Kambodhi is ideal for warding off Saturn- related evils. Playing, singing or even listening to it once a day and especially on Saturdays are ideal for pampering Saturn. Vishnu Sahasranamam is the best prayer for Saturn Maha Dasa and bad transits of Saturn.
