The word Sade-Sati itself appears to be frightening. Though not in all the cases, but in most of the cases Sade-Sati shows its malefic effect on the natives as Saturn is involved in forming Sade-Sati.
During the year 2019, Saturn will be moving in Sagittarius Sign. As such three Moon Signs are involved in formation of Sade-Sati.
For Capricorn Moon Sign: Year 2019 is the first phase of Sade-sati.
For Sagittarius Moon Sign: Year 2019 is the second phase of Sade-sati.
For Scorpio Moon Sign: Year 2019 is the last phase of Sade-sati.
Saturn transits for two and a half years in a Sign. As such movement of Saturn in three Signs is required to form Sade- Sati which is equal to seven and half years. Moon and Saturn are involved in formation of the period of sade-sati. This period starts when Saturn enters the 12th house from the natal Moon Sign. Again when Saturn crosses over Moon and lastly when Saturn moves second house from Moon. This entire period takes seven and half years to complete the three houses as Saturn moves in one house for about two and half years. It means a person who has his first period of Sade-Sati at the age of 19 will have another cycle of this period at the age of 49 and then at the age of 79.
To illustrate, if you have Aries as your Moon Sign the period of Sade-sati will start when Saturn enters Pisces Sign. Saturn will move in Pisces Sign for two and a half year. Again Saturn will transit in Aries Sign for another two and a half year. Next, Saturn will move to Taurus Sign indicating the last phase of sade-sati. Overall, the period of sade-sati will remain in force when Saturn transit from Pisces to Taurus Sign for Aries Moon Sign.
Moon does not feel comfortable with Saturn. Moon is fearful of Saturn and as such the period of Sade-Sati is considered to give challenging results. The native may remain depressed and indecisive and will take generally wrong decisions due to impact of Saturn on Moon. His hard work will not yield any good results causing him financial restrains. The native feels obstructions all around. But is the result of Sade-Sati always adverse? Is the whole period of seven and a half year of Sade-Sati is difficult. The answer is no. To find the answer of this question, one should see the strength of Saturn in the natal chart, the aspects of other planets on Saturn and Moon and also the dasa period.
Saturn is like teacher or judge and governs discipline and justice. Saturn has all the records of our Karmas. Sade-Sati is the time when Lord Saturn gives us the results of our karmas we have performed through the suffering faced during the period of Sade-Sati.
The result of sade-sati also depends on the strength of Saturn in the natal chart. If Saturn is exalted or is placed in its own Sign in the horoscope, the results will be tolerable. But if Saturn is in debilitated position or is ill placed in the natal chart, the results may be more severe. Saturn is Yogkarak for the persons born with Taurus or Libra as their Ascendant. If Saturn is well placed the results will reduced substantially. Even if Saturn is weak the results may not be so severe for the natives born under these Ascendants. Mahadasha or Antardasha of Saturn should also be considered as the result may be more severe if a person is running both sade-sati and dasa period of Saturn as well.
The entire Saturn Sade-Sati is divided in three equal time frames of 2.5 years each. Due to transit in three Signs from Moon, Sade-Sati is generally divided in three phases namely FIRST PHASE, SECOND PHASE AND THIRD PHASE. The results of these three phases may be categorized as:
When Saturn enters the 12th house from the natal Moon the first phase of sade-sati starts. The person starts feeling the malefic effects of this period. Depression in life creeps in and the native may start getting problems in his professional life causing financial restrains. Sudden and unwanted expenditures may cause stress. The native may also feel lack of harmony in married life too.
Second phase of Sade-sati starts when Saturn transits over natal Moon Sign. This period is considered a tough period and a person may also face health issues apart from other problems in life. All these obstruction and issues in life may cause lack of peace of mind. The native may remain restless and may not find success in his endeavors in spite of hard work. Sometimes he may also have to face humiliation.
Third phase is the last phase of Sade-sati. When Saturn moves second house from the natal Moon, this period starts showing its effect. The native may face problems in relations with others. This period may also cause some legal complications causing defame. Peace of mind is lost and the native remain frustrated most of the time due to failure in getting success.
The native should not be afraid of Sade-Sati period and should perform few remedies to minimize its adverse effect. First of all he should restrain from evil deeds. He should not do any harm to anyone. He should avoid non-vegetarian food or liquor. He should worship Lord Hanuman as much as possible and should visit to Shani temple on every Saturday. If, the results are more severe, he should consult some astrologer.
No doubt, Sade-sati period can give some harsh results and obstructions causing delay but success is not denied if a person performs good deeds during this period.
