Impact of this Transit in India and the World
If Sun is the significant factor of royalty and government, then at the same time Saturn is the governing planet of democracy and its subjects. In such a situation, the Sun’s conjunction with Saturn will bring some major changes for the country and the world.
In the Kundli on birth chart of independent India, this particular conjunction of Sun and Saturn along with Mercury will take place in seventh house which is also the significator of foreign trade ventures. Apart from this, this particular house is also taken into account to study about a country’s national as well as international relations, entertainment appliances, relations with common public and business equations. The seventh house is also known as the house of foreign embassies, relations with foreign countries, world wars and conflicts. Considering all of these calculations, conflicting situations can get formed in the country as well as in the world which will have a profound impact on the common masses.
India’s foreign ministry will reinterpret it’s relations with many countries and try to establish relations with many new nations, but some old partners may be left behind. The government of the country may face heavy opposition or come into terms with tensions. There may be a new deal related to Oil and Gas.
If we talk about the world, then tensions and war-like situations are likely to get formed between the powerful nations of the world. The presence of Mercury will give birth to some problematic rhetoric(since Mercury is the governing body of speech and communications skills) , because of which nations can keep blaming each other in this time period. The Sun rules over the eastern direction, at the same time Saturn is the governor of the the Western direction. In such a situation, the eastern and the western countries can make attempts to degrade each other. However, such conflicting situations will come into effect for a very short duration of time and to keep them under control, the concerned nations should behave in a regulated manner
