from Dips into Divinity, Astrology, & History
The combination of Saturn and the Moon in the 10th house made Swami Vivekananda very sensitive, and very sad sometimes. It is a combination for detachment (vairagya) also. It had to come through an agonizing search because Saturn is with the 8th lord Moon, the planet of emotions and is aspecting Rahu in the 12th house, which is the house of salvation. This Rahu is aspected by Mars, the 5th lord of mantras. This concentration of three influences on the 12th house makes Saturn, the planet of detachment, a significant factor in spiritual development. So Rahu-Saturn period in the life of Naren (Vivekananda) is important for his spiritual development, is what must be noted here.
