Saturn if placed opposite each other exchange their characteristics.
1. Whenever Jupiter and Saturn are placed together Saturn will
soak the results of Jupiter and Jupiter will soak the results of Saturn
i.e. Saturn will improve while Jupiter gets spoiled.
2. If Jupiter and Saturn are conjoined with regard to the 5th
there will either be no male child or male children will not survive.
3. This is not a good combination for high education. One having
this combination may not study well if favourable combinations are not
4. One of the children will bring a bad name to the family. One
does not derive the desired happiness from children. Mostly they will
not be placed very high in life.
5. They do not have much wealth as the karaka of money gets
spoiled owing to conjunction with Saturn. This yoga may be said to give
a hand-to-mouth existence as far as money is concerned. The concerned
houses for wealth and their lords must also be taken into account.
6. The conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the 10th house makes
one a lawyer, advocate, magistrate or judge. It will be particularly so
if these planets own the 6th house.
7. Jupiter and Saturn's influence on the 5th house may give
jaundice, cirrhosis or a sluggish liver. It may also cause gall-bladder
stones. This is very strongly indicated when Mars also influences this
8. If Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde, the results will not be
adverse. It will promote Jupiter's influence.
9. If this combination takes place in any of the saturnine signs
or in the exaltation sign of Saturn, that is, Libra, evils of Saturn
will automatically be cancelled.
10. This combination will produce excellent results in the 4th
house. The opposition of Jupiter and Saturn will also be very
favourable, the native will be blessed with good children, moveable and
immoveable property, recognition, good for profession, education etc.
11. In case of opposition of Jupiter and Saturn, if either of the
planets falls in own sign, the results of the stronger planet will be
experienced and the results of the other will become feeble.
12. Jupiter and Saturn in Lagna and 7th house exchange their
qualities but if either of these planets occupy own sign, the results of
the other will be absorbed to a great extent. I have found that such
persons are very happy or successful so long as other strong indications
are not present. This is mostly applicable to Jupiter and Saturn's
opposition in respect of Lagna and the 7th house. This gives one wife
13. Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the Lagna is equally bad
for proper settlement in life. This may cause some physical disability
if other factors are also present.
14. This Yoga should be treated as a Daridra Yoga. But it will be
slightly better if the combination takes place in jupiterean or
15. The combination of Jupiter and Saaturn is not so bad in fiery
signs as in earthy signs.
No combination can give the same results in all possible positions or
for all the Ascendants. A combination may be auspicious for one Ascendan
while inauspicious for another. Dr B V Raman has explained in his
various articles how the result of a Yoga should be applied in a
horoscope. Such care must be taken for this Yoga as well. The
application of the finding should not be verbatim. This is very valuable
Yoga for accurate judgement of a horoscope.
One school of thought has described the combination of Jupiter and
Saturn as auspicious for Aries, Leo and Sagittarius Ascendants if these
planets join the Ascendant or the 5th house. For Taurus Ascendant, it is
not bad if it falls in the 8th that is, Sagittarius. For Virgo
Ascendant, it is good if the conjunction occurs in the 4th, 5th, 9th or
12th house. For Capricorn Ascendant, it is good in the 2nd, the 12th and
For Gemini Ascendant it is good in the 11th and the 3rd houses.
For Aquarius Ascendant, the combination is auspicious in the 2nd, 7th
and 12th houses, while bad for all other houses. For Libra Ascendant,
this combination does not give good results in any of the houses. I do
not agree with this view.
Jupiter stands for good and open actions while Saturn shows low
and hidden things. Jupiter represents prosperity, wealth and children,
whereas Saturn indicates adversities, poverty, sadness, depression etc.
Mixed results should be expected when both these planets conjoin.
In the first house Jupiter and Saturn make one cruel, indolent and
lazy. Such native does not get much happiness and comforts. Generally
this is not a good combination in Lagna for signs other that Sagittarius
If these two plants conjoin in the 4th house, good results are
produced. The native will be wealthy and famous, will have good friends
and relatives. He will have lands and property. Evil results are not
produced if Jupiter and Saturn are placed together in the 4th house or
opposite each other.
The combination cannot be appreciated in the 7th house. The native
will lose money on account of women. He will be addicted to vices. He
will be avaricious for his father's wealth and will not be good-looking.
In the 10th house, the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn is
favoured. The native will have conveyances and cattle. He achieves a
high position and the rulers favour him.
In Chapter31, slokas 79, 80, 81 and 82 of Sarvali Kalyanavarma has
described the yoga of Jupiter and Saturn for all positions of kendras.
In Chapter 25, sloka 24, the author of Hora Sara has mentioned
that the combination of Jupiter and Saturn in the 3rd, 6th, 10th and
11th houses is auspicious and in all other houses it is bad. In the 8th
chapter of Jataka Parijata there are almost similar views for this
combination. Garga Rishi has described the combination of Jupiter and
Saturn for all the 12 houses.
A few other works also have described the combination of Jupiter
and Saturn as bad while some others have described it as good.
if Saturn and Jupiter
are retrograde and conjoin, there will not be any inauspicious result.
Jupiter and Saturn combination causes all kinds of happiness and
prosperity, if both are retrograde.
The conjunction of Jupiter to Saturn shows that you have enormous potential for success, although it won't come without effort. In spite of overwhelming odds against success, you are eager to explore new means to make a massive assault and assert yourself in the world. You have the fortitude and staying power to mobilize all your resources for this task. Planning every step of the way is absolutely essential, aliong with knowing when to act and when not to. You have a vivid picure of your future already realized in your dreams, but you are realistic enough to accept the responsibility this entails. You know that even with a driving ambition, striving for significance is not enough unless it satisfies a clearly pictured mental vision. You have the courage to be ostentatious about your belief in yourself, while remaining cautious enough to stay within your limits. Your capacity to achieve goals is in direct proportion to your willingness to accept self-discipline and hard work. The glow of success is so sweet that you can accept these facts.
You are hopeful yet realistic, eager yet serious, assertive yet deliberate. Generally you don't take chances, preferring to use proven methods to get what you want. You apply your talents in the most practical way so that little effort is wasted on non-productive projects. You can find rewarding satisfaction and exploit your creative talents in law, education, medicine, accounting, or the ministry. To these fields you would bring a profound understanding of people and an ability to help solve their problems. You are patient with less gifted people and willing to be of assistance when they need you.
In your moments of relative leisure, you enjoy reading informative books that are useful in your professional interests. In your constant striving to raise your level of competence, you might attend evening sessions at an educational institution. Never satisfied with the extent of your knowledge, you realize that competition requires to to keep abreast of current thought and developments in your field.
You respect the lessons of history, which stimulate your philosophical musings on destiny and the role of each individual in the destiny of man. Your retentive memory is a great help in crises that require an immediate solution; you may even be surprised that the necessary information comes to mind so readily at the right time.
Overdoing is your most persistent problem, for it can cause physical exhaustion. You especially need to get away from your daily concerns and truly unwind. Frequent 'little vacations' are especially effective in restoring vitality and giving you a fresh approach to your goals.
