Hari Om


Nilanjana sama bhasam raviputram yama grajam |
Chhaaya martanda sambootam tam namami Shanaishcharam ||

Śani ( some write Shani) enters Saturday-Sunday, now in direct motion. Śani stays direct and continues its transit across Leo (Simha), on its way to Virgo (Kanya). Next time Śani is retrograte is in 2011, in the sign of Virgo.

Śani went 'direct' at 00:14 minutes Eastern Daylight time ( Early Saturday Morning, conventional time, Friday PM, Vedic time).
This occured at 0742'15" Leo ( called Simha) a natural fire sign, owned by Sani's father, Surya.

With this direct motion, notice any changes in your conditions? Work, income, projects, honor or dis-honor, spiritual pursuits and sadhana, residence abroad, aliments, government matters, etc.

I am most happy that Śani begins his forward march once again. Note that Śani will be getting stonger over the next few years as he marches to his sign of exaltation, Libra (Tula).

Shanaiscarya or Shanaye kramati sa - the one who moves slowly. Saturn takes about ~30 years to complete its path around the sun.
