Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2016, is from 24th Mar- 14th Aug. This is my fifth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture. The links to me previous articles online are: Saturn Retro 2012 (2 articles), Saturn Retro 2013 (70 articles), Saturn Retro 2014 (11 articles) and Saturn Retro 2015 (15 articles)
Dear friends this is my sixth post on ongoing Saturn Retrograde 2016. In today's post, I want to narrate about the very special nature of this years Saturn retrograde, 2016, which can be compared to a distinct, and elaborate Rajasic Shakti energy Layered Cake, possessing elaborate sediments of powerful underlying layers...
The first Rajasic Shakti from 10th of March, gets tremendously boosted up, because Mars enters Scorpio in February 20th itself, forming the volatile Mars- Saturn conjunction in Scorpio, the explosive Shani Mangal yoga, from February 20th itself, TWO WEEKS prior to (Brown) Arrest Phase of Saturn retro begins. This year, the 15 day build period,the Arrest Phase of Saturn Retro (refer graph above). starting
Once the Red coloured Red Hot Phase begins from 24th March, te official commencement date of Saturn Retrograde 2016, the energy level goes crazy in the early stage itself, powered by the explosive combustion energies of overwhelming Mars- Saturn conjunction in Scorpio, the explosive Shani Mangal yoga. Especially, as Scorpio is a sign ruled by volatile Mars.
Just when you thought that things would get slightly cooler, once the (Orange) 2nd Gear Phase sets in from 8 April, Lo and Behold, another Rajasic Shakti layer.. Chaitra vasant navratri 2016 begins, in which the waxing Moon phase, Devi Shukla Paksha is oozing and exploding with Rajasic, Shakti energies. The energies of this Navaratra shakti Moon phase, Devi Shukla Paksha become stronger day by singular day, much beyond the traditionally observed 9 days of Navaratra, well into the 15th day, the Full moon, the Chaitra Devi Purnima, conclusion on 22nd April, Friday.
As a further layer, the week Thursday, 14th April to Thursday, 21st April represents what I term as the Rising Sun- Moon week, as the rising Rajasic Shakti energies of the Navaratra Devi Shukla Paksh, i.e, waxing moon, is paralleled/ mirrored by a rising Sun. increasing exaltation of Sun from 1st degree to 8th degree in Aries/ Mesha, the sign of the Sun's exaltation.
This powerful phase is fuelled FURTHER On, because of a multi planetary retrograde currently going on .. the major planets Jupiter, Mars, Saturn being retrograde, Mercury almost combust by Sun in Aries. Then, Rahu and Jupiter conjunct in Leo, to create Guru Chandala yog. And on 17th april, Mars goes retrograde, BOTH RETROGRADE, in Scorpio.. an advanced version of Shani Mangala yoga. Only Venus, now exalted in Pisces, but then without Saturnine influence Venus represents pure Shakti incarnate energies, hence most of the Devi Shakti rituals especially connected to Laxmi, are often performed on Fridays, i.e, Shukra-var, a day ruled by Venus, i.e, Shukra.
As many other planets are retrograde, or conjunct to exert any individual energy influence, the sharp and distinct Sun Moon energies are laser sharp in this week.
Finally, as the Rising Sun and Moon phase, concludes on Purnima/ Full Moon of 22nd April, Friday, the fun doesn't stop, AS, the final layer comes in the energy cake, as the Sun continues it's rise from 9 degrees to 15 degrees, the maximum possible exaltation in Aries, on 29th April, Friday.
IN CONCLUSION: All Rajasic, Shakti, Sun, Moon, Mars etc ruled people should make the maximmum of this Layered Cake energy drama from February 20th to 29th April, a Super Diwali bonus of Saturn Retrograde, 2016!
And Saturn, Rahu ruled should utilise it for all kinds of regression, pending, cathartic, pending, past pending activities, hopefully from inside of a drak cave..!!
