In the Hindu community, when an individual is married, an important ceremony is conducted
before the wedding. This ceremony is called the kundali matching. In Kundali matching, the
Janam kundalis of both the bride and the groom are studied to check compatibility levels. This
Janam Kundali is formed when a child is born. The guardian of a child generously notes down
the details regarding the child’s birth. These details are the time, place, and date of birth. This is
then passed on to an expert and professional astrologer who studies the positions of stars,
constellations, and other celestial bodies to finally formulate the Janam kundali. The Janam
kundali holds numerous predictions about the child’s life and future. That’s why it is considered
an effective medium in marriage matching as it predicts future conflicts and mishaps which can
be avoided by certain remedies. As planetary positions are such important criteria in determining
a person’s future, it has the power to form various yogas and doshas. These yogas and doshas are
either auspicious or inauspicious and affect an individual’s life both positively and negatively. In
this article, we will talk about a special dosha called the Shani sade sati dosha, its effects on an
individual’s life, its formation, and also discuss a few possible remedies.
About the Shani Sade Sati Dosha:
The Shani Sade Sati Dosha has the power to cause numerous conflicts and plight in a person’s
life when it is in the 2700 day transit of the Planet of Saturn occupying the person’s birth chart.
Here transit of Saturn takes place from the 1st and 12th house to the 2nd house of the native’s
horoscope. The effect of this dosha gets stronger if Saturn has a poor influence in the birth chart
of the native.
The planet of Saturn is called Shani. Vedic Astrology states that the planet Saturn is the planet
that has karmic retribution and justice attached to it. The transit of Shani (Saturn) from the 1st
and 12th House to the 2nd house, which occurs over seven and a half years, is considered to be
very critical in forming the Shani sade sati which is an important phase in the life of the native.
These seven and a half years are very important in a person’s life that has the power to impact a
person’s life both positively and negatively. The nature of the impact is determined by Saturn’s
position, nature, and a few other astrological instances. If the native is impacted negatively, they
may face troubles in terms of health, wealth, career, overall prosperity, mental well-being, and
love life. Thus, it is important to take necessary precautions and implement effective remedies to
remove the effect of this dosha.
