Saturn trigging Ketu.....?
This is highly speculative:
I´m doing the transits course and realize that yes, indeed Saturn was - almost - transiting my 8th cusp when I discovered astrology as a possible career path. That, Ernst teaches us in the 6th video in that course, often means a career change, for the better.
Now - it was not within the same Navamsa, Saturn was about 6 degrees away from the 8th cusp when the big "Aha!" happened and I realized that astrology would be my new thing in life.
But on the exact day, or very close to it, Saturn transited my natal Ketu. 6 degrees from the 8th cusp. This is I said speculative, but could that have triggered the event?
Saturn transiting through the 8th, the 11th from the 10th, can cause a career change anytime, its not a trigger transit to the cusp. Saturn could trigger astrology as it transits ketu if saturn is lagna lord or AK.
That´s the missing link in my reasoning, thank you Ernst! The technique would have slam dunked in this case, but no, my Saturn is neither my AK or Lagna Lord. The closest it comes is being conjunct my AK in the Navamsha; not good enough then? After all it´s the ashram we are talking about, isn´t it?
Also thank you for clarifying the not triggering way of working.
Probably something else triggered it.
