Saturn-Rahu opposition (and Ketu-Saturn conjunction) (April 25 – September 30)
The occurrence of the Saturn-Rahu opposition is certainly not positive for those who have such opposition in their birth charts. In addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Saturn is affecting you via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in areas which are affected by these planets as indicated by your natal chart.
