Hello friends, welcome back to my channel
on vedic astrology. Today I will talk about the most important transit of year 2020.
Saturn will be transiting into its own house of Capricorn on 24 th January 2020. Whenever
a planet transits its own house it is said to be in dignity and is able to give us its
own strong qualities. For example, Jupiter in Sagittarius will give us optimism and expansion;
Sun in Leo helps boost our confidence and a good transit of Venus mends our relationships
and gives us happiness. Similarly, Saturn transiting in Capricorn will give us responsibility,
discipline and will make us work hard. The problem is that we will not work hard unless
situation around us demands so. Hence, I will be analyzing world situations whenever Saturn
was in Capricorn for last 120 years and how it made us work harder. As this is a very
vast topic, I will cover only economic aspect in this video.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is like a God in his temple or a Guru in his Ashram, where they
are in a position to give maximum blessings and teachings to their disciples. However,
Saturn transit in Capricorn is like a judge in a courtroom. He will be giving his judgement
and he will punish those who are found guilty. Saturn represents the working-class population.
In many ways it is the opposite of Sun. Sun represents the rich and the powerful, for
example the king and in todays world the political leaders and the CEOs. Sun is exalted in Aries
and debilitated in Libra which is exactly the opposite for Saturn. Sun amplifies our
ego however Saturn will crush it. Saturn makes sure we our good to everyone especially the
poor and downtrodden. In the coming slides I will explain how the rich and powerful were
hurt during Saturn’s transit in Capricorn. They say whenever USA sneezes the world catches
a cold. So to analyze world economy we will look as the economy of USA for the years Saturn
was in Capricorn for the last 120 years. The left column shows the last 4 transits
of Saturn in Capricorn which occurred from: Feb 1902 to Feb 1905.
April 1931 to Dec 1934 Feb 1961 to Jan 1964 and
March 1990 to Nov 1993 Saturn comes back to the same sign every 29
and a half years. It stays in one sign for 2 and a half years. As this transit is so
long we can definitely feel the pressure from Saturn.
The right column shows that every time Saturn was in Capricorn USA was either already in
recession or the markets crashed when Saturn moved into Capricorn. All these recessions
are characterized by a roaring bull market followed by a stock market crash around the
time when Saturn enters Capricorn and then sluggish economic recovery.
Normally if a person has Saturn in Capricorn in his birth chart it is considered very good
as the native will possess the qualities of Saturn which are disciple and perseverance
which helps them to succeed in life. But we cannot call the transit of Saturn as a great
transit because not everyone has the qualities which Saturn is about to enforce on us. Saturn
wants to teach us “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going”.
Saturn is a significator of land and everything found beneath it for example, oil, iron, etc.
Thus it rules the oil industry, mining industry, iron and steel industry, agriculture and real
estate. It also rules the telecommunication industry and is a significator of bankruptcy.
In all these recessions, one of the industries ruled by Saturn crippled severely.
Let’s look at year 1931. When Saturn entered Capricorn, USA was already in recession. This
recession was so long that it is called a Depression. In September 1929, Down Jones
reached a closing record of 381. The stock market would not return to its pre-crash high
for the next 25 years. By July 1932 Dow Jones had crashed by 90%.
By the end of year, around 1300 banks had failed. 15 million people (more than 20 percent
of the U.S. population at the time) were unemployed. In addition, beginning in the mid-1930s, a
severe drought ravaged the agricultural heartland of the U.S. Also known as the “Dirty Thirties,” the Dust
Bowl period was the most destructive drought the United States has ever faced covering
more than 75% of the country. President Hoover signed the Smoot-Hawley Tariff
Act. It raised taxes on 900 imports. Other countries retaliated, setting off a trade
war. As a result, international trade began to collapse. Bankruptcy and Agriculture are ruled by Saturn.
We see that that Saturn’s transit in Capricorn destroyed these two industries in the 30s.
Saturn is also a significator of fear. During the Great Depression, people were so fearful
that government started slogans such as “What we need to fear is fear istelf”. The Kennedy Slide of 1962 occurred when Saturn
had already entered Capricorn in 1961. After the market experienced decade of growth since
the wall Street Crash of 1929, the market peaked during the end of 1961. The S&P 500
Index lost a quarter of its value between March to June 1962. The S&P 500 was essentially
flat over the next two decades. This shows how Saturn again slowed down economic recovery
for a very long time. US Steel companies were hit the hardest. They lost almost 50% of their
value in the first half of 1962. This was the beginning of the death of the US Steel
Industry. Saturn signifies iron and steel industry. Saturn in Capricorn again destroyed
an industry it rules. There is a lot of debate surrounding whether
Trumps war with Amazon is like Kennedys war with US Steel. Saturn also signifies the Technology
Industry. Will Saturn hurt the technology industry in 2020 and 2021? We will have to
wait and watch. The recession of the early 1990s lasted from
July 1990 to March 1991. It was the largest recession since early 1980s and contributed
to George H W Bush’s re-election defeat in 1992. 1980s was a booming economy under
president Ronald Reagan which worked under the principle of “Greed is Good” The collapse of more than 1,000 savings and
loan institutions in the late 1980s was the major cause of the economic recession of the
1990s. By the mid-1980s, interest rate had fallen from 19% to 10%. Affluent Americans
and investors began ‘flipping’ homes, or buying and then selling them within a short period
of time for huge profits. As hot commodities, houses began to dramatically increase in value;
however, the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s and a volatile housing market eventually
caused housing prices to plummet. On August 2, 1990, Iraq invaded and annexed
of Kuwait, after accusing the latter of taking its oil. Within a week of the invasion, crude
oil prices had risen to well over $20 a barrel, a spike that affected Americans at the gas
pump. This further made the recession worse in USA.
Here again we see that Saturn which is a significator of bankruptcy, real estate and oil industry
puts pressure on these industries and causes a recession. During long bull runs in the economy the gap
between rich and poor widens. Poor people do not have enough money to invest in stocks.
And hence do not benefit from the stock market growth. Saturn in Capricorn tries to level
the field and reduce this gap. Saturn also wants us to work hard to earn our livelihood.
Saturn will not give us easy money earned through investments. That’s why we saw stock
markets to crash when Saturn was in Capricorn. When stock market crashes, Saturn crushes
the ego of rich people. During recession, government normally starts lots of infrastructure
projects to reduce unemployment. This again helps the working class population. After
Capricorn Saturn will transit into Aquarius which is again ruled by Saturn. To survive
these 5 years of powerful Saturn transit we should train ourselves to be disciplined,
be kind to the poor and our subordinates, work hard and always follow the law.
