‘Sade Sati’ is a term that is frequently heard in Hindu Astrology where ‘Sade’ means ‘half’ and ‘Sati’ means ‘seven’, which means Sade Sati, is a period which lasts for seven-and-a-half years. The period of Sade Sati on particular horoscope starts when Saturn enters in twelfth, first and second house from the moon. It is that phase in life when planet of birth comes under the influence of Lord Saturn or Shani Dev. It can be a critical period for a person depending upon the positioning of Saturn in the horoscope. If Saturn is not well-placed in the native’s horoscope then this period is considered to be a challenging one which can lead to:
Conflicts in relationships
Loss of Wisdom
Loss of ancestral property
But it is also an ideal time to get a reward for hard work and performing good deeds when the Planet Saturn transits through each Janma Rashi. Therefore, Shani Dev is the best judge of one’s karma for both; good and bad deeds.
Three cycles of Sade Sati
Sade Sati is divided into three cycles of two and a half years each.
In the first cycle, the planet Saturn transits the 12th house from moon for 2.5 years and influences the health of close relatives, job loss, and family problems.
During the second cycle, the Saturn transits 1st house for 2.5 years and can affect health, relationships, domestic life, career, and finance.
In the third cycle, Saturn transits in the 2nd house from Moon that leads to loss of wealth, financial stress, mental stress, increased expenditure and poor health. This phase is very critical, as it affects the native’s children and spouse, in some cases it may also lead to divorce.
