EYE ON ASTROLOGY:  Saturn  Conjunct Sun : FEB 16TH

I learn a lot from my Western astrological friends. While combustion is one of the most damaging things for a planet in Vedic astrology,   it turns out total combustion within the last degree is a blessing.  Saturn will be conjunct with the Sun on Wed. Feb. 15 at 11:48 am in the Eastern US EST but other parts of the world will experience it later. It will be within 1 degree on Feb. 15-18th.    While the exact definition of cazimi is 17 minutes, I find 40 minutes is a useful number and often round it off to 1 degree even. Having a strong Saturn in my chart, I find the Sun/Saturn exact conjunction very energizing and a breath of fresh air. 

The exact conjunction of the Sun with Saturn on Feb. 16th    can be a really good thing and is called cazimi and comes from medieval astrology and it used to refer to planets that are so close to a conjunction with the Sun that they are “in the heart” of the Sun. They become energized by the Sun and their most positive qualities come out. This will be a positive for  Feb 15-16 and is within 40 minutes of the Sun.    An example of cazimi is Oprah Winfrey who has a cazimi Venus in her natal chart; it has made her an incredible star to women and brought out her acting and relationship abilities with the public to a pinnacle.

Saturn Cazimi will impact Capricorn and Aquarius rising positively and also if Saturn is in your first house or if it is your Atamakaraka or planet with the highest degree.  It could bring out hard work, reliability, efficiency, good at following work instructions precisely, and could bring deep meditative transcendence.   The 1-2 day transit is short-lived and over by Feb. 18th   we are back to the intense grunge of Sun/Saturn so watch speeding and be kind to your boss and watch your blood pressure and avoid speeding cause the police department may be a bit more intense than usual if you have to encounter them. All gratitude to my Jyotish Gurus and my spiritual gurus for their continued light and guidance.
