These are a couple of the most feared concepts in Indian astrology and they belong to Saturn. They are Sade Sati and Dhaiya of Saturn. Let’s first start with Sade Sati.
This is one of the most dreaded and feared beliefs in Indian astrology. It is believed that when Saturn visits the 12th, 1st and 2nd houses from the house where Moon is placed in the horoscope of a person, the Sade Sati of Saturn is in effect. To simplify the concept if Moon is in Leo sign in a horoscope, when Saturn transits through Cancer, Leo and Virgo, the person is Said to be under the effect of Sade Sati of Saturn and all kinds of tragic evenets may happen to him according to some propagated beliefs. And if Saturn is placed in Cancer, Leo or Virgo in someone’s natal chart or birth chart when Moon is placed in Leo, the person is said to be born under the effect of Sade Sati.
However it is important to note that not everybody Suffers from the bad effects of such transit of Saturn. Some people on the contrary may get Very good results and prosper during the Sade Sati while others may experience Big difficulties during Sade Sati. Therefore it is important to note that Sade Sati is not Always bad for everyone and it may on the contrary bless some people with very good Things. So it is again a matter of great importance whether Sade Sati is Bad or Good In your case. Do not be afraid and have the opinion of an expert astrologer who can properly analyze your Horoscope and tell you if it is actually bad or good in your Horoscope. And even if you are actually suffering from the bad effects of Sade Sati of Saturn, the bad effects of Sade Sati can be reduced by special Astrological Remedies which include the application of Pooja, Yantras, Mantras, Gemstones and Charities.
There is one more concept related to Saturn which is called Dhaiya of Saturn or Shani which means a transit of Saturn in a particular sign in a Horoscope for a period of 2 and a 1/2 years. In a Horoscope when Saturn visits the 4th or 8th Sign counting from the sign where Moon is placed in natal Horoscope or birth chart, then Dhaiya of Saturn is said to be in effect for that Horoscope. For example, if Moon is in Leo sign in a natal Horoscope, when Saturn transits through Scorpio and Pisces, the Dhahiya of Shani or Saturn is said to be in effect. But as in case of Sade Sati of Shani, the Dhahiya of Shani also gives bad effects only to some people while it gives beneficial results to other people depending upon their horoscope. The bad effects of Dhaiya of Saturn can be reduced with the help of Pooja, Yantras, Mantras, Gemstones and Charities.
