The maximum Ashtakbarga strength a planet can acquire as it transits through any sign is 8 units. Each sign is of 30 degrees. In Ashtakbarga calculation these 30 degrees are divided into 8 equal sectors of 3 degrees 45 minutes, each signifying the transit of the planet through each of these sectors. If Ashtakbarga strength of Saturn through Aquarius will be 8 units (kaksha) ( rare in a chart) as per your natal chart, it will signify the planet Saturn will be all time beneficial and your friend throughout its transit through Aquarius and will pull you up in every aspect of your life to a very great height.

The minimum strength of a planet as it transits through any sign will be zero (rare). This means, the planet will be extremely challenging and will be your greatest enemy during its transit through any sign, and in present time the transit of Saturn into Aquarius can push you to death like sufferings as per ancient text, throughout its transit of 2.5 years. Any strength in between the maximum and minimum strength say 4 units will mean Saturn will be beneficial and a friend for you only during 4 sectors (kaksha) of its transit through Aquarius , and will pull you up as per its natal promises for specific aspects in your life. However for remaining 4 sectors (kaksha), Saturn will be your enemy and will push you to misery and suffering for those aspects in your life as per its natal promises.
