Favorable : This is the time to set things straight. Usually, this is a favorable transit of Saturn in our life. Take a stand on what you feel is right and should be rightfully yours.

Key Concepts : Focus on Finance
Favorable : You have just completed 5 years of 7.5 years cycle of Saturn, and you have entered the final and last phase for 2.5 years. The last phase might have been most stressful as Saturn’s Karmic lessons might have been most severe.

Think about what you want to say before you speak. Have patience with respect to your family members. Give them some more time before they can be on the same wavelength as you are.

Danger : This is the second phase of 7.5 years cycle of Saturn or Shani sade Sati. Usually this is the most stressful period as Saturn will conjoin your natal Moon during this transit. Saturn will force you to confront the unresolved issues and unresolved Karma from past. You will have to resolve them over next 2and half years. You cannot avoid them or hide them under the carpet anymore.
Key concept : Stability of liberation
Favorable : Go someplace where you can be a monk for a while or at least be detached from the events happening around you. You need to introspect on the last 30 years of your life. Where did you go wrong and where did you go right. You are at a critical juncture in your life when you will be undergoing a complete transformation through the Karmic lessons that Saturn will impart. Some of them could be rewards and some of them could be punishments. Let the change come from a stable, solid and harmonious you instead of a disturbed, broken and egotist you.
Danger : You entered into first phase of 7.5 years cycle of Saturn or Shani sade Sati. Hence, Saturn will bring lot of unresolved issues from your past.
