Saturn + Rahu union – Boon or Bane | Vedic Astrology

One of the major flaw and/or drawback, in analyzing a horoscope, is using generalized concepts for concluding the results.  And, the commonly spread inauspicious planetary combinations and/or dispositions are mostly ill-treated as well as misunderstood.  Some of these are related with Nodes i.e. union of planets with Rahu and Ketu.  In this article, I will be taking the Saturn + Rahu union and will try to explain a bit about it for the benefit of the reader.

The most common myth about this union (Saturn + Rahu) is that this union destroys the house occupied by it; and that the best placement for this union is in third or sixth house.  Actually, this issue also came up in recent past, when I was doing the analysis for some person; and he was quite worried about the union of Saturn + Rahu in the horoscope.  And, this also prompted me to write this article.

First of all, one must avoid generalizing things and try to consider every planet as per its nature for the specific Ascendant/Lagna.  Planets and their union delineate results as per their nature, strength and potency.  If, both Saturn and Rahu are auspiciously disposed; the union is supposed to give auspicious and good results for the horoscope. And, in order to accurately ascertain the auspiciousness and potency of a planet we have to see its lordship and placement in Lagna/Ascendant as well as in Navamsha Chart.

Rahu is a shadowy planet; and primarily gives results as per the lord of the zodiac sign occupied by it.  And, in general, it (Rahu) is considered similar to Saturn.  Therefore, while analyzing the union of Rahu with Saturn; the main focus should be on the nature of Saturn for the specific horoscope.  Like, if the union is taking place in Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn or Aquarius Ascendant; the chances of it being auspicious are more prominent, specifically if Saturn is well placed, safe from combustion and not occupying the zodiac signs of Sun, Moon and Mars.

Following example charts may be useful for more clarity on this.

Kenneth Cranham birth chart - vedic astrologyIn this vedic astrology birth chart, Saturn rules over sixth and seventh houses; and, therefore, it is not an auspicious planet for the nativity.  Saturn is also not friendly with Ascendant lord Sun.  The union of Rahu with Saturn is in the eleventh house, wherein Rahu is occupying the zodiac sign of Mercury.  Despite the negative nature of Saturn for Leo Ascendant; Saturn’s placement in the zodiac sign of friendly planet Mercury proved auspicious for the attributes of eleventh house i.e. finance.  Being placed in the zodiac sign of Mercury, Rahu is also working in support of Saturn.  This union of Rahu + Saturn is also receiving aspects from Mercury and Mars (Yogakaraka planet for Leo Ascendant).  In the Navamsha division, Rahu is exalted, while the Saturn is occupying its own zodiac sign (Aquarius);  and this is further adding to the strength and potency of both these planets.  Unlike the commonly followed observation about the union of Rahu + Saturn (that this union destroys the house occupied by it) – this union has blessed the native with good financial success in his profession.  The chart belongs to famous Scottish Actor Kenneth Cranham.

John Paul vedic astrology birth chartThis example horoscope belongs to famous American drummer, musician and songwriter John Paul Densmore . As we can see, the Ascendant is Libra (ruled by Venus); and the Saturn + Rahu union is taking place in the ninth house of his Lagna Chart.  Tenth house lord Moon has also joined the union; and, the planets Mars, Mercury and Venus are casting their aspect on this union of Rahu with Saturn and Moon.  Therefore, against the commonly prevailed and generalized concept of the Rahu + Saturn union; the native has very reasonable success in his professional career, specifically when he was running under Saturn’s Mahadasa.

Kate Hudson Vedic Astrology Birth ChartThis vedic astrology birth chart belongs to famous American celebrity Kate Hudson.  The Ascendant is ruled by the Moon; and Saturn is having union with Rahu in the second house of her Lagna Chart.  The nature and role of Saturn is not considered positive for Cancer Ascendant; and therefore, the union of Rahu + Saturn in second house is not much desirable.  The lord of second house Sun is, however, exalted and strong placed in tenth house.  While determining the damage, caused by inauspicious planetary placement in a specific house; the strength and disposition of the lord of that very house should also be given due consideration.  As in this case, the union of Rahu + Saturn is not auspicious for the second house, specifically when there are no auspicious planetary influences on this union.  However, due to strength of second house lord (wherein the union is taking place) as well as other supportive planetary dispositions, the harm is diluted.  But, still, the overall significations of second house are weak and vulnerable; due to which, the native (Kate Hudson) faced problems in her family life.

SandraThis example horoscope belongs to Sandra Rohzon, an American Astrologer.  Saturn rules over first and second houses of her vedic birth chart; and, the union of Saturn with Rahu is taking place in the sixth house.  The planets Sun, Mars and Mercury are having their aspect on this union; of which, the aspects of Sun and Mars are not supportive.   Her son was physically challenged; and, she faced problems on both family and financial fronts.  And, against the common perception of the union (Rahu + Saturn) being good in the sixth house; it was the placement and the planetary influences on the union which proved correct.

I hope the avid readers are benefited by this article.

  1. Sir, i am also having shani rahu (closely conjunct) in 10th sign of leo, and sun in 8th house.
    My rahu md was over when young and I would say it was generally good. If rahu MD was good then wouldnt shani MD also be good since Rahu should have given results of Shani.

    1. Appropriate analysis on your comment/concern is only possible through detailed examination of the full horoscope for which you may take paid consultancy via

      And, I presume that you are actually referring to tenth house (in the sign of leo) wherein the union of Rahu + Saturn is taking place. It is not necessary that if Rahu MD was good, the MD of Saturn will also be good; and, it will depend upon the disposition of these planets in Navamsha as well as influence of other planets upon this union. Generally, Mahadasa of such Saturn (united with Rahu in tenth house of Scorpio Ascendant) is giver of mixed results with volatility and tensions.

    1. Appropriate conclusion can only be drawn by detailed analysis of the full horoscope for which you may take paid consultancy via Apparently, the union of Venus, Saturn and Rahu in ninth house of Taurus Ascendant is good and capable of generating positive results for finance and foreign travel. Matters related with health, family and parents may remain disturbed in accordance with the quantum of other relevant factors like, planetary influences upon this union, disposition of these planets in Navamsha and operational planetary periods etc.

    Sir Namastey, Mera dekhke kuch bataiye…11th August 1979, Time 19.00 Hrs hai and Place Mathura , Wanted to ask about Marriage when it will happen, and job stability. what remedies would you suggest.

    Pratima Mishra

      1. As per the birth details, you are born in Makar Lagna (Capricorn Ascendant); and, the union of Saturn + Rahu is taking place in eighth house of your Lagna Chart. The results of this union is not much auspicious for your nativity and capable of generating problems and weaknesses on many fronts (including health, family, parents, relationships and finance).

        Detailed analysis on specific queries and suggestions etc. are not possible over here; and, you may take paid consultancy for the same via

    1. Appropriate conclusion can only be drawn with full horoscope for which you may take paid consultancy via

      Like, if there are no influences on this union, this union (Saturn + Rahu in tenth house of Aquarius Ascendant in Anuradha Nakshatra) may be giver of mixed results with volatility. But, if there are aspects from strong and well disposed Jupiter or Mars – there may be strong and favorable results in professional as well as financial matters. While, if there are influences from the Sun or Moon, the potency of Saturn may get further diluted.

      Similarly, the results/impact of this union may vary as per the Navamsha (Like, if Saturn is relieved from this union in Navamsha and it is placed in friendly/suitable rashi, it may also generate some support for Saturn (which may be able to enjoy good command on Rahu). But, if the union is intact in Navamsha, then the attributes of Saturn may get further diluted.

      Thus, as mentioned above, there are many more aspects needed to be examined for deriving an appropriate conclusion of this union. On General Note, the union indicates volatility and may only generate some temporary positive results in profession.

  4. Anuradha Ratankumar Nagori

    Will the combo of Saturn and rahu in 8th house in Libra rashi is good or bad if lagna us spices (meen) lagna?

    1. Hello Anuradha

      Appropriate conclusion can only be drawn with full horoscope for which you may take paid consultancy via

      Generally, the union of Rahu with exalted Saturn in eighth house of Meena Lagna is not auspicious and capable of generating problems related with health, longevity, family and relationships. The intensity of inauspicious influence of this union (Rahu + Saturn in eighth house of Meena Lagna) may get diluted if there are auspicious planetary influences upon this union and/or these planets are better disposed in Navamsha. While, if there are no auspicious planetary influences on this union and/or these planets are not auspiciously disposed in Navamsha, the intensity of negative impact may remain strong on these aspects (health, longevity, family and relationships).

      And, it is Pisces in English not spices. Calling the union as combo is also not appropriate; and, it should always be referred as a union.

    1. Saturn becomes debilitated in eleventh house of Mithuna Lagna; and, therefore, this is not a healthy placement of Saturn in your Lagna and its retrograde motion may not be much helpful either. Rahu’s position in eleventh house is also not much promising unless it is under some positive planetary influences.

    I look forward for your advise. Thank you

    1. You may take paid consultancy for guidance in career.

      The union of Saturn + Rahu is not auspicious in your nativity; and, it is not taking place in tenth house. The number 10 signifies the sign Capricorn (wherein Saturn and Rahu are having an union); while, it is the ninth house (not tenth) wherein this union is taking place.

  6. hi sir, i have this shani rahu combination in navamsha chart in 12th house in aries sign… also saturn is debilitated in 4th house in lagna chart in aries and rahu in leo in 8th house…..sir whats your take on such position ??

    1. Appropriate conclusion can only be derived after thorough analysis of full horoscope for which you may take paid consultancy.

      Seemingly, such disposition is not auspicious for many aspects (specifically stability, peace, finance, family and health).

    1. Appropriate conclusion can only be derived after thorough analysis of full horoscope for which you may take paid consultancy. Like, we also need to check if there are any other planetary influences on this union or otherwise; or, if these two planets are well disposed in Navamsha; and/or, support from currently operational dasa for these planets.

      On apparent note, the union looks moderately supportive and generally it makes a person laborious, strong, diplomatic, skilled and courageous.

  7. Hi, you have given reply to everyone’s query expecting the same for mine. I worked for 7y and lost job. Since past more than a year I’m trying but facing obstacles.

    1. Hello Maruti

      Personal horoscope consultation is subject to financial charges and this is, definitely, not possible over here (through comments).

      Besides, the birth details provided by you are incomplete; and, the narration about the planetary placement is also doubtful as such on the day 15 January 1986 Saturn was in Scorpio/Vrishchika rashi (thus not exalted).

      Therefore, my suggestion is to contact some nearby local astrologer for getting some clarity on the disposition of Saturn in your horoscope.


    1. Appropriate conclusion can only be drawn with complete details and thorough analysis (for which you may take paid consultancy). On general note though, this union is likely to generate positive results, specifically when there are no other planetary influences on this union (i.e. no other planets are having their aspect on this union).

  8. I have Saturn and Rahu combination in my 4th house and I am running Saturn Mahadasa and Rahu Antradasha started on 22/09/2017. I have lots of health challenges. How will be this time period for me? Would I get any relief? Would this time will be in my favor? What to expect?

    I was born on 4/Oct/1956 at 3:15am, Lucknow, India.

    I look forward for your advise. Thank you

    1. The union of Saturn with Rahu (debilitated) is not auspicious in fourth house of your Lagna chart (Simha Lagna) and during Rahu’s antardasa (in Saturn’s Mahadasa) you may experience problems related with health, business or property.

      I use Lahiri Ayanamsha as per which the antardasa of Rahu is yet to commence; and, at present, you are under antardasa of Mars. And, I may also need to cross check the accuracy of your birth time.

    1. Hello Lakshmi

      Just replied to your email in this regard. In brief, there is no union of Rahu + Saturn in your Navamsha. You might be using Mean Position of Rahu for the calculation (which shows the union of Rahu + Saturn in first house of your Navamsha). However, in my opinion, True position of Rahu should be used as per which Rahu is in second house (Dhanu rashi) of Navamsha and Saturn is in first house (Vrishchika Rashi) of Navamsha.

  23. Hello Sir,
    My son has this placement Saturn and Rahu in 4th house in Libra. And he is a Cancer ascendant with Pisces Moon rashi.He was born in 2013 , hence he got this unfortunate combination in his horoscope. I was told by an astrologer that due to this placement (along with debilitated Mars and Venus), his mother will die when he will be a kid and also he will commit suicide due to frustration before he turns 30.In fact he said to me, this is one of the worst horscope that he has seen. Please share if there is any truth in this horrible prediction he shared.

  24. Hi ,
    In my kundli I have Saturn + Rahu in 10th from lagna and 7th house from moon.. I belong to aries lagna and cancer moon sign.
    Can you say how it works.?

    1. Appropriate analysis is possible with complete birth details for which you may take paid consultancy.

      Apparently, Rahu’s placement in eighth house of Karka lagna (with Saturn in sixth house ) may cause humiliation, instability, financial problems and disturbance in domestic life. If the Lagna lord and/or first house is also disturbed and/or mahadasa of Rahu or Saturn is operational, then physical injuries or diseases are also possible.

    1. Appropriate analysis is possible with complete birth details for which you may take paid consultancy.

      Generally, the union of Rahu with Saturn in first house of Capricorn Ascendant (Makar Lagna) is capable of giving positive results (required the union is not challenged by inauspicious planetary influences; and, both these planets are well disposed in Navamsha division).

  25. Dear Guruji

    1. Appropriate conclusion can only be drawn with complete details for which you may take paid consultancy.

  45. Raj ji, I am a tula ascendent and How is the combination of Saturn+Rahu in 4th house in birth horoscope in sign of Capricorn? Jupiter and Ketu in10th house

  46. I have Saturn and Rahu conjunction in the 8th house. I have Gemini ascendant hence rahu and saturn sitting in Saturns own rashi of Capricorn.. Please advise me about the possible results of such a conjunction. Saturn is also sitting in its own rashi of Capricorn in my navamnsa chart..

  47. Dear sharmajee ,
    my Dob is 2nd Dec 1978 ,9.20 pm Razole, Andrea Pradesh. For me Asc is Cancer and jupiter is in Asc. Rahu + Saturn in Second house. Rahu maha dasha started from 26/08/14. Plz tell me how this Dasha will be for me in all aspects.


    1. I have same combination. I am born in December 1978 with Simha lagna and I have been passing through the shani dasha since past 14 years and 5 more years to go. I am just waiting for its end but in this process I have become more spiritual(Exalted Jupiter is dragging me that way) not much inclination toward the materialistic things now.
      When Shani mahadasha started at my 23 years, I thought I can handle it because of the age (young and lot of hopes and wishes) but after couple of deadly blows in my life I started to tell myself wait for another 15 years another 14 years another 13 years ….it was a long wait… mean while I also experienced the saturn return and also the Sade sati(in final phase now). Now I am almost 38 years old huh..5 more years of battle with rahu antar dasha started recently. All these days I have been waiting for the Budha Mahadasha to begin but I know after 5 more years not sure if I still have that zeal but I am hanging on. I can say one thing… this is past(life) bad karma.

      My ego is melting away like ice in the desert. I am still Regal(Simha Character) not at my Ego anymore but at my heart.

      Patience pays

    Shani and rahu are in 4th house, please tell me the ill effect.

  56. Dear Raj Shekhar Sharma Ji,

    I read your article and need a little better interpretation if possible, as a number of aspects seem to be at play in my horoscope. Hence seek your views on the same. I have a Libra ascendant and Moon sign and my lord of the ascendant – Venus is well placed in the 10th house (of profession), yet I have changed numerous professions and feel that there probably would be more to come.

    The Saturn and Rahu union happens in the 11th house. The lord of that house is again very well placed in my 10th house of career. So there are negative aspects being off set by positive aspects, yet I feel there is some elements of life which is still missing. I am still single and somehow am unable to get married. Even if talks proceed and something seems to be maturing, somewhere down the line it collapses.

    My birth details are as follows

  59. Hi Sir

    My newly born son has following

    1st house (Capricorn) – Nothing
    6th House (Gemini) – Jupiter
    8th House (Leo) – Mars
    9th House ( Virgo) – Sun
    10th house (LIBRA) – Rahu, Saturn, Mercury and Moon.
    11ths House (Scorpio) – Venus

    How is this placement ?

    Please reply.


    1. Hello Mihir

      Without complete details, it won’t be appropriate to comment on overall planetary disposition of the horoscope. And, you may take paid consultancy for the same (

      As regard to the union of Rahu with Saturn, Mercury and Moon in tenth house of his Lagna Chart- it looks quite promising required these planets are well disposed in his Navamsha chart too and operating dasa should also be supportive.


  60. Dear Sharmaji,

    If Rahu & Shani both are “Retrograde” and are in 9th house in Tula (Kumbha Lagna).
    Do you think that this combination is auspicious/beneficial ?


    1. Hello Anand

      Appropriate conclusion about the potency of the union (Rahu + Saturn) forming in ninth house of Kumbha Lagna can be had with complete birth details. Apparently, the union looks auspicious.

      1. Dear Sharmaji,

        Here are the birth details –

        DOB – 08/06/2013
        Time – 00.20AM
        Place of birth – Fremantle, Australia
        Lagna – Kumbha

        Please give views on Rahu Shani (Retro) union in 9th house


        1. Except Rahu’s union with the Moon and Mars in Navamsha Chart; the other aspects are supportive for the union of Saturn with Rahu. Therefore, the overall results of the union (Rahu + Saturn) are moderate in support; wherein, Saturn will be able to give good results, while Rahu’s results may be disturbed on temporary basis. For further details, you may consult via under paid consultancy.

  61. Dear Sir,

    When this saturn is ruling the 7th and 8th house, and this yoga is present in 12th house…does it make the person prone to being possessed?

    One good thing is that it is ocurring in gemini, mercury being in 11th house, but saturn lords the 8th house…even though it is a viprit raj yog.
    jupiter is exalted in lagna and moon mars ketu in 6th house.

    1. Hello S

      I don’t believe in black magic or posession like things; therefore, no comments on this. The Saturn +Rahu union in twelfth house of a Lagna Chart may generate sleeping issues and bad dreams due to which one may think of being possessed. I do not go by the principles of vipareet raj yoga; and analyse the planets and their influence on the basis of their placement. Sometimes, there may be a coincidence of some good placement of a planet which may generate good results and the credit can be given to some other planet forming a vipareet rajyoga. As per my understanding, the placement of Saturn with Rahu in twelfth house of Cancer Ascendant (Karka Lagna) is not an auspicious and supportive planetary disposition and capable of generating many issues depending upon its disposition in Navamsha as well as operative dasa. For details, you may take paid consultancy.

  62. Dear Sharmaji, very interesting article! I have query regarding combination of Ve-Mo-Ra in 12th house. How this combination fares? good or bad?

  63. Dear Sharmaji, Thank-you for the very interesting article. My daughter has a very interesting Rahu/Saturn relationship and while the lord of Rahu placement, Saturn is combust it is in a friendly house with mercury (exaltation) but retrograde. The combination is aspected by yoga-karaka mars/jupiter. Wondering how this would fare for the strength of Saturn and how it would be considered for her Rahu in 6th house conjunct Jupiter in deblitation. Please note that Saturn is with a vargottam rahu and retrograde mercury in the Navamsha. I eagerly await your views as. Please find below her details of birth:

  65. Sir, What will be the effect of Saturn + Rahu in Leo ascendant. with tenth house is with Mars + Venus and sun being in 11 with mercury.

    1. i have the same combination ..some astrologer told me that u will not be successful in anything u do in ur life shani+ rahu in capricorn in 4th house ..plz reply sir

      1. Hello Ravi and Varun

        Detailed and appropriate analysis won’t be possible over here; and, you may take paid consultancy for the same at

        In general, the union of Saturn + Rahu in Capricorn sign and fourth house may not create any severe issues required there are no other planets involved in this union and Jupiter is not placed in eighth, tenth or twelfth house.

  66. Prabhatkar Bipul

    Respected Sharma sir!!

    A very very good article I came to read after long time.

    It would be very nice if you write some same type detailed articles with examples on “SHANI -MANGAL YUTI ” (specially in LAGNA in different signs) in lagna kundli.

    Its very rare to find good articles on the abovesaid yuti specially in Lagna.

  67. what if saturn and rahu are in 12th house ruled by saturn and also ascendant(which has mars and venus) is also ruled by saturn,if i want to become an actor or any health related profession

  68. Sir my DOB is 15 june 1979, Could you please let me know about Shani + Rahu in second House?
    I don’t have kids …..

  69. Sir,my DOB is 29-5-1995.Time:6 32 AM.Place:Mumbai.I would like to know about my education?how is is overall?that much i want to know.Good or BAD?

    1. well the chances of it giving good results may be less. Some positive results can be expected in foreign journey, vocations related to entertainment or hospitality sector and even some financial gains; required, the Sun is well placed, the combo is safe from aspect or union of Mars, Moon or Sun and Jupiter is in fourth house. The disposition of relevant planets mentioned above should also be safe in Navamsha Chart for these positive aspects.

    2. Raj ji, How is the combination of Saturn+Rahu in 10th house in transit? In lagna chart, Saturn is in 7th house in exchange with moon in lagna. Rahu in 10th, Jup in 4th and rashi/lagna is makar.

    3. My son has Saturn +rahu in second house in libra, sun, mercury, ketun aries in 8th house, venus exalted in pices in 7th house, moon exalted in Taurus in 9th. Jup 10H, mars in 1st house. How bad is Saturn rahu placement. Thanks

      1. Appropriate conclusion can only be drawn after having complete birth details for which you may take up paid consultancy.

        As per the provided information though, the union of Saturn + Rahu in second house of Kanya Lagna may not create any severe issues; while, the union of Sun + Ketu + Mercury in eighth house of his Lagna Chart is not good for the health and well being of the child.
