I am an ardent researcher in Mundane astrology. I combine both the tropical (sayana) and sidereal (niryana) while arriving at the conclusion. Several articles have been written by me with respect to Jupiter’s stay in signs, Venus’s stay in signs, Mars’s stay in signs, eclipses, etc. You can go through these articles in my website.

In mundane astrology, the slow moving planets plays a very important role. These are Mars (when it stays in one/two adjacent sign(s) for nearly 6 months), Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. During some years, Venus stays in one sign for nearly 4 months. The article on Venus has been written by me in my website. However, in Vedic astrology, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are not considered. According to me, these three planets cannot be given a miss. So, I consider these planets too while analysing events.

In this article, I am only taking planet Saturn and its effects when it transits the sign Capricorn. The reason why the sign Capricorn is important to note is because, in Ashtakavarga (SAV-Sarva Ashtaka Varga) of India Independence chart, there are two signs which have least number of points and these are sign Gemini which has 19 points and in the sign Capricorn has only 20 points. In the BAV (Bhinna Ashtaka varga), the Saturn in Gemini has 2 points and in Capricorn it has 1 point only. The average points required in SAV is between 25 to 28 points and in BAV its 3 points (as it is Saturn. In the case of Mars also the average is 3 points. In the case of other planets it is 4 points). Several Astrologers predicted all will be hunky dory when Saturn enters Capricorn. But according to me the effect of any planet can only be decided by the SAV and BAV points. That is why we are seeing the adverse results of Saturn in Capricorn, inspite of Capricorn being Saturn’s own sign.

Currently, Saturn is transiting in the sign Capricorn from January 25, 2020 and it will stay there till April 29, 2022. We are witnessing the events as it unfolds. I have summarised (in conclusion above) the probable events based on the statistical analysis of Saturn’s transit in earlier years and the events those unfolded.

    U astrologers are good at doing the postmortem only... all good facts but where is the prediction... stupid article with just basic facts which anyone can look up in internet.. you term business as usual also as devastation... why don't you astrologers make some serious accurate prediction work rather than doing these post postmortems....

      Sundar Balakrishnan
      I suppose you are not the Astrologer. Had you been the Astrologer, you would not have said this. Astrology can be proved as a science, only when statistical analysis of past events are studied. Anyway, there is no point in arguing with you.

        Amit Bedi
        So what is your specific prediction for next 2 years and which you will strongly stand behind? no general prediction but specific ones.. given that it is science (and i fully believe it is a science that's why i follow it) but every astrologer is just firing in the air...

          Sundar Balakrishnan
          You can read my earlier predictions and also my tweets which are not in the form of full blown articles (twitter @jupiter_astro). Btw, if you are so keen in seeing Astrology as a SCIENCE, I suggest you start studying Astrology (like I took up my study in Astrology). I am not here to prove it to anyone nor I want to prove myself. My articles are for my Munadane astrology students. However, my 75 to 80 percent of predictions have materialised so far. Whiich I consider a good hit by any standards. My quest into astrology will remain for ever, and my research in Mundane astrology will go on.
