A major celestial event of much astrological significance will occur when Saturn enters the zodiacal sign of Capricorn, its own House, after about 30 years in its journey round the Sun, at 09. 56 hours (local time) on January 24, 2020.
Saturn’s transits
Leaving the Sagittarius sign, Saturn will begin transit in its own Capricorn sign until it enters Aquarius sign in its retrograde motion at07.56 hours on April 29, 2022. Saturn will return to Capricorn sign at 14. 20 hours on July 13, 2022 where it will remain until it moves over to the next zodiacal sign Aquarius which too it owns, at 18.20 hours on January 17, 2023. 
Special aspects of Saturn
Saturn will command the special aspect over Pisces, Cancer and Libra which are the 3rd, 7th and 10th signs from Capricorn, during its transit in Capricorn. 
End of Erashtaka for Scorpio natives
Saturn’s exit from Sagittarius sign to enter Capricorn on January 24, this year will mark the end of the Shani Erashtaka for Scorpio Lagna and Moon sign natives and the onset of the second phase of the Erashtaka for Sagittarius Lagna and Moon sign natives. 
Saturn’s transit in the Capricorn sign will produce very favourable results for Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius natives and mixed results for Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio Sagittarius and Pisces natives. Jupiter’s transit in his own sign of Sagittarius and in Capricorn during some durations up to November 20, 2021 will go a long way in countering the Saturn’s malefic impact on Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio and Sagittarius natives.
