Before New Year officially announces itself on the calendar, something about it always arrive beforehand. A mystery binding believers and non-believers alike to look for their share of happiness in planetary movements. And whether you buy the predictions or not, you still want to look into it even if for fun. 2017 is here. And with something in store for every zodiac. While all nine planets have something to offer to their respective signs, it is Saturn and Jupiter whose absolute movements from one astrological sign to another, make them the ultimate players to look for in your yearly horoscope. Having mentioned it, we bring you the two major astrological movements that our astrologers believe will impact all the zodiac signs.

Saturn Transit on 26 Jan 2017

Saturn or Shani emerges as the show stealer of 2017 planetary show as it transits from Scorpio to Sagittarius on 26 Jan 2017. Astrologers are considering Saturn's transition to be the most powerful astrological phenomena of the year. This movement of Saturn will reorient life events on both ends of the transit. With some happy or cautious receivers, Saturn will balance the Karma cycle of the affected ones with benefits for some and lessons for others. However, on 2 June 2017, a brief retrograde will make Saturn to move into Scorpio for around five months, from thereon it will settle into Sagittarius sign for next two and half years.

What makes Saturn a powerful planet in Vedic Astrology?

The quintessential nature and power of Shani or Saturn stems from its ability to influence Karma or actions of people and accordingly reward them with appropriate results. Saturn or Shani, is renowned for its slower pace or Shanaishcharya. It takes 30 years for Saturn to move across all twelve Zodiac signs which means that each Rashi gets to experience the influence of Saturn for two and half years before it moves to the next sign. Slower, stabilizing pace of Saturn works as a grounding force that shapes and directs people to emerge out of difficult phase of life as mature and responsible individuals. Interestingly, if Saturn is placed in a friendly or beneficial house in your horoscope, it delivers equally superior returns and rewards. The planet of Karma, Saturn is a true judge. It either rewards beneficial gains or corrects the course of life with meaningful hardships. It is indeed a planet feared out of respect for the influential persona it holds in astrological landscape.

The last transition of Jupiter was from Leo to Virgo in August 2016 and it will remain parked there until September 2017.
