The combination of Rahu and Saturn in Libra can help business grow steadily if used properly. Libra rules over business affairs and markets, bazaars and the like. The 7th house is connected to commerce and trade as well as our desires to create.
Saturn sitting with Rahu, creates a stormy energy. Storms mean power, strength, strong energy, but that will need to be harnessed for lasting, positive effects to be achieved. Saturn can give lasting results if you play by his rules; Rahu is more of the instigator, who talks big, but fizzles out in the long run. Business relationships may start off with a bang, look like they will last, then have a messy falling out. For a all relationships to work out at this time, both parties will have to be willing to put in the hard work that a lasting relationship requires for long term gains. Starting with a solid foundation is what Saturn will ask for, while Rahu will be thinking big and expansive. This is a time for learning how to use the storm energy and redirect it for powerful results, or we will just get blown around and get tossed by the storm.
The rule with Rahu is often, "what he gives, he will take away." Unless you change or transform what he gives you in some way, it won’t last. Now is the time to learn how Saturn wants you to behave while being cautious of Rahu’s rash behavior and insatiable appetite. If you can befriend Saturn, you will have a friend for life and for death. The rewards you are expecting from your efforts (Rahu) will be rewarded when you harmonize your actions with Saturn’s desires. Remember, slow and steady wins the race for Saturn to be happy. Rahu wants it now! How can you work with both of these energies in order to find harmony?
Sales and connections may start off with a bang, but learning to manage them will be the ultimate challenge. Turning accounts into lasting, sustainable relationships will be the key during this transit. Business may challenge our personal relationships and vice versa, or they may bring good results that will have to be maintained and nurtured in order for sustainability. Remember, Rahu is of the world, he wants money, and the flashy gifts of this material realm. He can help us materialize our desires and give us results, but brings his insatiable appetite for them as well. He can make us lose sight of the overall goal of our spiritual existence, non-attachment, so expect Saturn to remind us of this if we lose sight of our true nature.
When Mercury enters Libra on 9.24.13, he will add another layer of business focus to Libra as he crosses over Saturn and Rahu. Mercury the commerce, communication and money handler is very friendly with Libra’s ruler Venus. Venus also likes the fun, energetic, business savvy Mercury. When Mercury retrogrades on 10.21.13, we will get a chance to re-evaluate and re-connect with unfinished business and tasks that went undone during the previous weeks. Use this time wisely and be grateful for the ability to go back and re-do what you may have missed previously.
With structure, and a "slow and steady" approach to business, there can be lasting success with this transit. New creative insights and innovations can be utilized at this time. Big desires can be manifested with focus, hard, steady work and a Saturn mindset. Build lasting relationships and work with a solid foundation. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is; perhaps Rahu is just tempting you? For best results, take a Saturn approach and trust the process knowing that hard, continual effort always pays off.
