The Worst Phase of Shani Sade Sati


The Saturn is the slowest planet and takes around 29 years and 10 months to complete the whole zodiac of 12 signs. It remains in one sign for around 2 ½ years. When a person go through this phase- his curiosity start – what will happen to him during this period and a number of the native got scared of this period. The hitch is whether the whole period will remain awful or a little of the period will be fine.



How we recognize the Sade Sati period. It is very easy to understand. Here we have to consider the moon sign. We have to look at the sign where Moon is placed in the ascendant chart. When Saturn enters in twelfth house from the moon, it starts the Sade Sati on a particular horoscope or a person.  It can be said- when Moon in Aries sign, Sade Sati will start when Saturn will enter Pisces sign.  Saturn will remain in this sign for 2.5 years approximately. This is called as the First Phase of Sade Sati. And it goes to Aries sign after 2.5. Years which we call the second Phase of Sade Sati. Then again after 2.5 years, Saturn will enter into the Taurus sign, the second house from the moon- which will be the Third Phase of Sade sati.

So friends this is the way how Saturn enters these three houses, twelve, first and second house from moon and makes a seven and a half year period which according to astrology we call Sade Sati period. Thus, Saturn transit over the 12th, 1st and 2nd house from Natal Moon is called the Sade Sati period and gives trouble in natives’ life regarding health wealth and relation.

Out of the three phases, the second phase is the most difficult one for natives as in this phase Moon is conjunct with Saturn. Saturn and Moon combination cannot be taken as good.


Thus, the result of Sade Sati depends upon the position of Saturn where it is placed. The result of Shani Sade Sati is always not depressing.  It depends upon the Placement/Transit of Saturn also. Shani sade sati effect may be auspicious, inauspicious or mixed depending upon whether Moon is in Saturn sign or in exalted, debilitated or in friendly sign. Sade Sati will not affect Taurus, Libra and Aquarius Sign. Saturn in Transit also gives auspicious result in 3rd, 6th and 11th houses from Ascendant. When transiting of these houses, it can give monetary gains, achievement in a profession, employment and freedom from diseases as well as person will be courageous and his desires will be fulfilled. On the contrary-in bad houses, it gives fears, illness and heavy expenditure. In addition to it when Saturn transiting through its own signs, or sign of exaltation gives good result. The malefic result increased when the Saturn transit through debilitation or enemy sign.


Sade Sati effect can be studied from Ashtakvarga point of view. Ashtakvarga is the series of 7 planets from their respective radical places and from Lagna in a natal chart and the measurement of the result is numerically explained.  We calculate various points in Ashtakvarga as a method gives by the great sage. The benefic points are called Bindus and Malefic are called Rekhas. Bindus and Rekha’s act as catalytic agents to increase or decrease the good effect of Bhavas under consideration. It is the most specific method used for transit result. Bindus are benefic points given by planets in Ashtakvarga contributed by 7 planets and Lagna. Planets give a Maximum of 8 bindus in his own Ashtakvarga. Similarly Rekhasare malefic points in Ashtakvarga. We calculate Rekha after deducting the total bindus given by 7 planets and lagan from 8 and we get the Rekhas. E.g. The total points are 8. Saturn got 5 points then rekhas will be 3.

Strength of Bindus

0 to 3 Bindus Bad result
4 Medium
5-6 Good
7-8 Very good

Similarly, Sarvashtakvarga is prepared for various houses. The total benefic points in a horoscope are 337. There are 12 Bhavas. The average point of each bhava is 28. Hence the Bhava which is more than an average point or specified point of each Bhava will be strong and less than that is considered weak. The transit of a planet in a rashi or Bhava containing more than average bindus i.e. 28 gives a good result, whereas when it is transiting through a weak rashi/bhava give the adverse result.  It has been observed that planets transiting in a sign with more than 30 bindus give very good results.  A house is considered to be a very week if there are less than 20 bindus in it. So the result related to the house will be unfavourable.

While applying the Ashtakvarga principle on Sade Sati- we have to look upon these essentials:

  • When Saturn pass through 12th, Ist and 2nd house from the moon have more than 30 bindus each in Sarvashtakvarga, the result of this transit would be beneficial. However, it may give problems while transit through the sign having less than 28 Bindus
  • If the Bhinashtakvarga of Saturn contributed more than 4 bindus, the result of this transit cannot be bad. On the contrary- it will give bad results.
  • The result would again be not bad if Saturn is transiting through their own/friends house.
  • See also the Nakshatra surrounding Moon. If these are beneficial, the result of sade sati cannot be bad.
  • Aspects of other planets should also be taken into consideration. Benefic aspects give excellent result, while malefic aspects cause evil.


  • There are certain remedies during this period i.e. 23000 Shanti Mantra in 40 days,
  • Donation of Black gram, Urd dal and Hanuman Chalisa.
  • Bajrang Bhan daily
  • Recite Shani Stotra
  • Shani Yantra is the best remedies
  • Mahamritanjaya jap
  • Can be worn Blue Sapphire with the guidance of Astrologer

Thus, it is the duty of the astrologer,- While giving the result of Sadesati to any native, he should study the chart very carefully and the native should do the proper remedies in full faith.
