In Hinduism, especially in astrology, Saturn (Shani) is described as an ego-deflating planet that rarely shows remorse for the culpable wrongdoer. Saturn’s transition symbolises its unforgiving and strict movement for the hosting zodiac sign.
Until Jan 26th, 2017, Saturn was transiting in Scorpio, following which it transited into Sagittarius. And, now Shani (Saturn) would begin its retrograde phase for Sagittarius, which would begin on April 6, 2017.
In simple terms, Saturn retrograde results in unprecedented developments in the hosting zodiac sign. This period is quite testing and exhausting for the zodiac sign as Saturn would test your determination and sense of purpose behind every decision and action. So be prepared.
