The book with a set of conceptual clarifications, guidelines and research-based findings with ample case studies demystifies the commonly held mysterious ways of Saturn.
It is not for nothing that amongst the seven chakras in the body Saturn is in command of the Sahsrar (the highest point to which life force or Kundalini can rise in its upward march towards excellence and perfection) and also that of the seven worlds (lokas) Saturn is ascribed 'Bhuva or Preta Lok', therefore symbolically while Saturn may open the flood gate to decay and destruction it may reach one to dizzy heights of achievement also.
The message of the book "Secrets of Saturn” is to test the most detested and place it with dignity at the slot in mind's (soft) warehouse so that the human being can make the most of astrology-a humane science.
Secrets are secrets as long as they are not disclosed or discussed in the public domain and in and through the .process of disclosure or discussion they become knowledge, which is power. We have attempted to share several Secrets of Saturn with a view to create systematic knowledge in predictive astrology about the workings of Saturns.
This exercise of sharing secrets in a systematic way finds its expression and through 8 chapters. The introductory first chapter presents the necessary background in terms of myths and facts related to Saturn. The chapter highlights the cosmic significance of Saturn. Saturn and the Sun are two poles of the function of cosmic evolution representing Prakriti and Purusha. Both dark and bright sides are the necessary warp and woof of the texture of both cosmic and human life. The Sun's gold shines in the presence of Saturn's iron. The chapter sets the tone to grasp the secret or shall we say basic truth that when Saturn inflicts sorrow, sickness, deprivation and death, its aim is to liberate the soul from its worldly moorings and pleasures of flesh.
The second chapter is devoted to Saturn's Period and Directions where periods of Saturn in the twelve signs and their consequences and the special effects of sub-periods under the major period of Saturn as also the 12 states of Saturn like lying, sitting, hands on eyes etc. that give distinct results.
The third chapter is exclusively devoted to the most dreaded curse and adverse period of seven and a half years which severly disciplines out the native and is popularly known as Saadhe Saati that it has three stages and. also that it has recurrence are brought out in limelight and highlighted. In this chapter we share their findings in regard to the formula to determine the onset and span of Saadhe Saati and explain the same with examples. The overall message is-do not be scared of Saadhe Saati, as several effective ways have been suggested to propitiate Saturn.
The fourth chapter is very well timed in the series of chapters and is titled Saturn: The Timer. It contains 12 rules in regard to predicting the exact spell of time interspersed with examples to explain the rules propounded.
The fifth chapter deals with Nadi Principles about Saturn's Transit. The sixth chapter focuses on Birth in the Sun's Dasha with especial treatment to Elevation in Sat~m's Dasha. It is very important to understand the relationship between the Sun's constellation and Saturn's dasa prior to the analysis and interpretation of the horoscope. Of special attraction of events from the horoscopes of such political heavyweits as Jyoti Basu, Bala Saheb Thackery, Ram Vilas Paswan, Abraham Lincoln and Indira Gandhi.
The seventh chapter delves into Saturn Jupiter Nextusand probes into the questions like (1) whether Jupiter in the 5th house gives daughters, (2) fifteen salient features about the relationship between Jupiter and Saturn, one of which categorically holds that the combination of Jupiter and Saturn in the 5th house will give no male child or male children will not survive. Other fourteen observations go to establish well reasoned findings with the help of 18 case studies from actual life.
The eighth and last chapter unravels the different stages of the mysterious Saturn. It goes without saying that a purified mind is the essential condition in developing spiritual quest, in reprogramming life by accepting right kind of values and it is here that Saturn's role as a purifying or cleansing crucible is to be understood.
