Saturn Mars conjunct in Sagittarius 2018
The Deity of Mula Nakshatra is Nirrti. She is the Goddess of destruction. One of the symbols of Mula is the roots and the of Trimurti principles working for this Nakshatra is Brahma who is creativity personified. Here most of us are likely to find a lot of paradox in the above sentences. However, it can be well explained by a very simple yet profound truth. A seed when planted starts to sprouts roots and to grow into a sapling. This is nature’s creation at its best. However, if we look down to find that seed after a few days or weeks for that matter, all we would see is conjunction of roots and a small shoot trying to make its way into the world at that point. The seed had much earlier dissolved to give way to the plant.
The Nakshatra Mula functions in a similar manner. Nirrti brings about the destruction of the seed whereas Brahma sets about creating a new plant. This happens in tandem. Mula is a Nakshatra which aids the processes of the universe to continue seamlessly and without fail. Any fear or fallacy associated with this Nakshatra is due to wrong notions about it.
Because of strong resistances from our end, sometimes we face major challenges as the planets posited in the Nakshatra or transiting this Nakshatra have to induce destruction and subsequent revival or creation in our lives. To bring about this change, if it does not find an alternative, it subjects the person to pressure which on the long run this is happening all for a good cause and is likely to put the person onto a newer level altogether.
Saturn is already in Mula Nakshatra and initiating changes on many levels and now with Mars joining this planet of change brings in a lot of interesting changes that are likely to affect our lives in the next 2 months to come.
Saturn is a planet of administration. It is a cool and composed planet with airy disposition. Saturn is also called Manda the slow one so Saturn in all its activities gives effects slowly and over a long period of time. As we experience this, we realise in awareness that Saturn does so to allow things to fall in place and become more and more streamlined.
Mars, on the other hand, is an aggressive planet, a fiery planet which is energy personified. Mars gives results very quickly and impatience is another of the characteristics of this planet on the go. It gives a technical association also and when associated with Saturn it is doubly confirmed.
How do we Reconcile both the planets when Saturn and Mars conjunct?
When Saturn and Mars conjunct, there is a tussle over the steady approach of Saturn to that of headlong of Mars. A tussle to first work a plan out, see all corners of the exercise and then move into the situation over a direct upfront situation working on things as they come and of an on the go attitude of Mars.
This tussle that tears the native is because of the contradictory emotions. However, if we step back for a while and watch the happenings unfold with an open mind, we will understand that at the end of the day each planet is working out for the betterment of the person concerned and this remembrance will take us a long way. The Saturn and Mars energy when properly harnessed gives a technical aptitude not to mention a huge bent towards sports and athletics with a disciplined approach. It gives one the spirit of performance with proper jurisdiction and planning. When energy applied to a task is properly planned and executed the plan has an exceptional outcome.
