Q&A: Dasha Cycles & Transits

Saturn LIFE CYCLE; Saturn SUBCYCLE ; Saturn as Sadi Sati? what is the essential deffrent between these astrological terms in the way they influence our lives? and which one has a stronger effect on us?

To really understand this I would need to teach you my VA301 course (Astrology in the Fourth Dimension), which itself is built on the 201 course (Unlocking the Meanings of a Horoscope), which itself is built on the 101 course (Symbolic Keys of Astrology)!!!

But very simply and quickly… the cycles and subcycles indicate which planet is the ACTIVE force, and the transits (such as a sade-sati) indicate HOW those planets are expressing their active force. For example if it is Saturn’s cycle and/or subcycle and at the same time he is transiting exalted in the 11th house – there would be powerful positive effects. It is very complicated. I recommend taking my courses or at least studying their textbooks.

For example someone is  currently in his Jupiter life cycle. Is there a possiblity to have Jupiter subcycle during Jupiter life cycle ?

Yes certainly. Every cycle starts with all the subcycles at the same planet lord. The natural order of the cycles follows their ownership of lunar mansions:

  1. Ketu
  2. Venus
  3. Sun
  4. Moon
  5. Mars
  6. Rahu
  7. Jupiter
  8. Saturn
  9. Mercury

The order is cyclic (after Mercury comes Ketu) and it is the same order for any cycle, be it the main cycle, sub cycle, sub-subcycle etc. The Jupiter major cycle, for example, begins with “Jupiter/Jupiter/Jupiter” (Jupiter main, Jupiter sub, and Jupiter sub-sub) it would go like this:

Jupiter/Jupiter/Jupiter
Jupiter/Jupiter/Saturn
Jupiter/Jupiter/Mercury
Jupiter/Jupiter/Ketu
Jupiter/Jupiter/Venus
Jupiter/Jupiter/Sun
Jupiter/Jupiter/Moon
Jupiter/Jupiter/Mars
Jupiter/Jupiter/Rahu

Jupiter/Saturn/Jupiter
Jupiter/Saturn/Saturn
Jupiter/Saturn/Mercury
Jupiter/Saturn/Ketu
Jupiter/Saturn/Venus
Jupiter/Saturn/Sun
Jupiter/Saturn/Moon
Jupiter/Saturn/Mars
Jupiter/Saturn/Rahu

Jupiter/Mercury/Jupiter
Jupiter/Mercury/Saturn
Jupiter/Mercury/Mercury
Jupiter/Mercury/Ketu
Jupiter/Mercury/Venus
Jupiter/Mercury/Sun
Jupiter/Mercury/Moon
Jupiter/Mercury/Mars
Jupiter/Mercury/Rahu

Jupiter/Ketu/Jupiter
Jupiter/Ketu/Saturn
Jupiter/Ketu/Mercury
Jupiter/Ketu/Ketu
Jupiter/Ketu/Venus
Jupiter/Ketu/Sun
Jupiter/Ketu/Moon
Jupiter/Ketu/Mars
Jupiter/Ketu/Rahu

etc. The final cycle in Jupiter’s period would be Jupiter/Rahu/Rahu after which Saturn/Saturn/Saturn would begin.
