shani sadesati There are different phases in our lives, and the karma we perform can influence them. Lord Shani Dev is the giver of karma in Hinduism. As per our belief, he maintains an account of all the good and evil deeds we do in our lives. Lord Shani Dev can either reward or punish us based on what we do. He is the one who leads our soul to Moksha as well. Here, in this article, we will delve deeper into what Shani Sade Sati is, how it happens, its different phases, effects, and remedies. Shani Sade Sati is commonly known as Sade Sati as well.

As per astrology, Shani Desha is a seven and a half year-long period in our lives when Shani or Saturn moves from the 12th house to the 2nd house. It is an astrological phase, where we can confront difficulties and problems in our lives. It depends heavily upon our karma as well. Though we often consider Shani Sade Sati a period of challenges, it is not the same for everyone. It varies on different factors such as the deeds you perform, your Nakshatra or star, and how you handle the situation.

How does Shani Sade Sati happen?: Shani Sade Sati happens when Saturn or Shani enter into our zodiac sign. It usually occurs before our Janma Rashi. It is essential to note that Shani Sade Sathi and the period it happens in our lives vary from one person to the other. The effect would also be highly different for each person. Shani resides for two and a half years in our zodiac sign as it moves from the 12th house to the 2nd house. This phase of two and a half years each is known as Dhayyias. Dhayyias is also known as smaller Panooti, which means smaller troubles or problems. The three zodiac signs into which we can divide Dhayyias are Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn. However, once our Shani Sade Sati comes to an end, we can move forward in our lives with the experiences we have mustered throughout 7.5 years. When Saturn or Shani leave our zodiac sign, we will have the zodiac of the Moon enter into our zodiac sign.

What are the phases of Shani Sade Sati?: We can divide Shani Sade Sati into three different phases. They are the rising phase, the peak phase, and the setting phase. These phases and their effects could make our lives worse or better. It depends upon our Nakshatra and also the way we view these hurdles. A few groups consider Shani Sade Sati as equivalent to all the other periods of our lives. However, most people take it as a phase filled with challenges and difficulties. Let's look at the three different phases of Shani Sade Sati now.

Rising Phase: The rising phase is the first phase of Shani Sade Sati in our lives. It is the starting period, which includes the initial two and a half years of Shani Sade Sati. Here, Saturn moves to the 12th house. It was in our native moon sign before that. During the rising phase, we would have to face several problems. Most often, we would confront challenges from our enemies. There would be work-related problems, especially with our colleagues. We will have to look into our family affairs to avoid conflict and maintain a healthy relationship. We would also be precautious while spending money as there could be financial problems during the rising phase.

Peak Phase: It is the most problematic phase of Shani Sade Sati. During this phase, Saturn will be in our first house. Here, we might confront numerous health-related issues, problems in our relationships, and sorrow. During the peak phase, we might face issues in achieving success. Here, we can have a weak immune system and diseases like depression. It is essential to exercise regularly and maintain a balanced diet to avoid any such conditions.

Setting Phase: It is the last phase of Shani Sade Sati. During this phase, Saturn will be in the second house. It is a much relieving phase compared to other phases of the Shani Sade Sati. Here, we would often face financial pressures. It is mainly because of the past expenses we have had in our lives. We can benefit a lot by staying healthy and evading drinking and eating non-vegetarian food items.

What are the effects of Shani Sade Sati?: Shani Sade Sati can be troublesome. It is an inauspicious period of our lives. We can confront issues related to health, family, education, and career. We might indulge in unhealthy relationships and face difficulties in them. Apart from that, we might enter into disputes over properties or land with others. The effects of Shani Sade Sati can vary from one person to another.

What are the remedies for Shani Sade Sati?: There are different remedies to overcome the effects of Shani Sade Sati. They include:

1. You can conduct prayers with Lord Ganesha and Lord Hanuman to overcome the problems associated with Shani Sade Sati.
2. You can donate things to others that are black to calm Lord Shani Dev.
3. You can serve birds to earn the blessings of Lord Shiva. It is another way of removing the effects of Shani Sade Sati.
4. Do Saturn Vedic mantra Puja and Havan with 125,000 chants to appease Shani graham.
5. You can worship the Peepal tree on Saturdays. You can also light a mustard oil lamp in the evenings near a Peepal tree.

It is essential to be extremely careful during your Shani Sade Sate phase. However, once you overcome it, you can enter a fruitful stage of your life.

  • Namaste Lou, with trust in the divine and doing proper remedy of Saturn, you can definitely come out of it. Saturn is the biggest teacher and once the lessons are learnt well, the problem doesn’t strike OR we know how to handle it.

  • Well, got more depressed after this…..Sade Sati period together with Dasha Shani/Shani starting. I really think won´t be able to get through it and maybe don´t want to. Too much sadness and solitude and fights, simply kill lust for life.
