Know More Saturn is one of the nine planets in the zodiac. It is considered to be a malefic planet . It moves very slowly and makes the native work hard and gives lots of troubles during its dasha or antra dasha . sadesati is related to saturns movement in the zodiac . When in gochar /transit Saturn comes before or after ( 2nd or 12 th ) the moon it is known as sadesati period . Saturn takes two and half years to move from one rasi to the next. Therefore to cross these three rasi it will take seven and half years . During this period one has to face many problems and illiness . In sadesati there are three charans / periods first charan of sadesati first two and half years has more effect on head ie mentally .Second charan middle next two and half years of sadesati has more effect on heart and third sadesati last two and half years has more effect on one’s legs . Same way when saturn is 4th / 8th from moon in the transit then it is known as dhia of Saturn . 8th from moon dhi is more harmful than 4th from moon dhia. When in transit Saturn comes in 8th then one gets money from a old woman / man . As according to dasa system a person is supposed to live for at least 120 years .Therefore during a person’s life who reaches near 100 or so years sadesati may occur 4 times which is very rare . Usually an indian person life’s end at the age of 75 – 90 years. Therefore very few people face the 4th phase of sadesati . Therefore sadesati may take place atlest 3 times in the native’s life .First stage occurs in younger age is supposed to be a very difficult one for native. It may have bad effect on one’s career during this stage. Second is less difficult approx in middle age but it mainly has effect on one’s health and third which comes approx in old age is usually considered marak . In case in the horoscope Saturn is 7th from moon or is in kendre then sadesati will not have that bad effect.

Number represented 8 Shanidev the seventh of the navgrah is the son of surya and sanghya devi . Symbolic of the planet Saturn from the navgrah he is feared most by people. He interacts with other planets for period of two and half and seven and a half years .The influence of shanidev is the most malefic when compared to other planets .The influence moves slowly and extends over long periods. This slowness is attributed to shanidev being lame. The cause of this lameness is narrated in the suryatantra unable to bear the great heat generated by surya his wife sanghya devi created a clone of herself .She named the clone swarna and directed her to look after the children in her absence & also tend to her husband surya just as a wife would do. She then left to live in her father’s home. Swarna conducted herself so well that even surya could not detect the difference Swarna was blessed with five sons & two daughters surya .As would be expected swarna paid greater attention to her children than those of sanghya devi . One day when shanidev felt angry he asked swarna for food dwarna asked him to wait .She said that she would first make offerings to god & thereafter feed the younger brothers and sisters. Only then could she give hime food . This enraged shanidev and he tensed his leg to kick her. Immediately she cursed him that his leg would get fractured. On hearing the curse shanidev got frightened and narrated the incident to his father. Surya immediately understood that something was amiss. No mother would curse her child with such dire consequences just for asking food. She could not be his wife. She had to be someone else .When surya shouted at her in anger and inquired who she was frightened at the rising heat she told him the truth .Then surya explained to shanidev that swarna was not his mother .She was only like his mother . Since her curse could not be nullified it could only be modified. He would not lose his leg but he would walk with a limp hereafter. Shanidev has aglow like the indraneelmani jewel . Dressed in blue clothes with a beautiful garland aound his neck .Shanidev is armed with a bow and arrow and a trishul while his hand is in the varmudra pose . He is mounted on a eagle and his rath is made of steel . Saturn is considered a cruel planet his eyes reflecting his cruel nature .His wife is held responsible for his cruelty . According to brahm purana shanidev was married to a beautiful woman who was strong spiritually inclined and dedicted to her husband .Once shanidev was deep in mediation concentrating on lord krishna . At that time his wife approached shanidev desiring a son . But as he was medidating he did not respond to her .She waited for a long time but eventually grew angry and cursed her husband whomsoever he sees will be destroyed shanidev apolozized to his wife and she too repented but once a truthful person pronounces a curse it cannot be reverted or negated shanidev stays for three months in a zodiac sign.He is the lord makara & kumbha ( capricorn & aquarius respectively ) zodiac signs and his tenure is for a period of 11 years .
Why shani idol is ointed with oil ? Astrology shastras prescribe ointing of shani idol made of iron with oil with mustard to pacify the fierce deity symbolized by the planet Saturn .The mythical story shani ( saturn) god’s harmful spell was to begin over hanumana when the latter was busy in the construction of the stone bridge over the sea to take across the monkey army of lord rama to lanka the island kingdom of ravana .There always was the danger of the demons damaging the bridge . So the charge of the safety of the bridge was given to the mighty hanumana . Shani knew the incredible physical and the para powers of hanumana . He explained to hanumana how he would have to cast a spell on the latter as his duty in accordance with the rules of the planetary configurations set by the nature .Hanumana pleaded that he did not want to go against the laws fo the nature but needed a short waiver to enable him to see through safely the construction of the bridge to dedicate it in the service of lord rama .Shani rejected the request for the waiver so shani in the form of a bad spell possessed hanumana . Hanumana retaliated by banging his body against the rocky mountains . It hurt shani as he was in possession of the body of lord hanuman to save himself from any further hurt he apologized to hanuman and promised that he would never again trouble any devotee of rama . Hanumana relented and gave shani mustard oil for application as a balm on his beaten ad bruised body . It helped and shani felt relief from pain .It started the custom of offering oil to shani god .There is a scientific explanation to it as well .Shani idols are made of iron as per the order of shastra . Iron is very prone to corrosion by rusting . But the application of oil protects it by serving as a barrier against water or moisture which sets off the rusting process in iron . It was after all the original paint to prevent the corrosion.
Hanuman and shanidev ( saturn ) hanuman & ganesha are two gods who are not negatively affected by saturn or shani .It is popularly believed that all planets are under the control of hanumans tail .Considered the lord of mars whoever worships hanuman is blessed with fortitude and strength .In human body mars is symbolized as blood . According to the ramayana hanuman once resued shanidev from ravana .Consequently shani promised that those who pray to him ( hanuman ) would be protected from adverse effects of Saturn. According to hindu astrology one passes though extremely difficult times when afflicted negatively by shani .There is another popular versions behind lord shani staying away from rama’s devotees it goes like this hanuman was deeply medidating on lord rama shani dev who was passing by decided to pause awhile and tease hanuman by pulling his tail pinching & prodding him and irritating him . Hanuman suggested that he should go his way as he did’t wish to hurt him as he was his guru surya’s son .But shani ignored him and continued to harass him inspite of the warning . After awhile hanuman gave him a much needed severe thrashing. Shani eventually begged for mercy ad hanuman relented burt only after extracting a promise that he’ll never go anywhere near a devotee meditating on lord rama . Experts give a spiritual interpretation of the relation between hanuman and shanidev . While hanuman is the epitome of selflessness and humility shanidev is synonymous with instant judgment that is based on past & present karma . Therefore to counteract the karma born ourt of selfish action one must be as humble as hanuman . Shanidev is called yama because it is the chief governor of longetivity . Shanidev is the father of gulika and mandi . It is also neelan and lord shiva . Shanidev is counterfeit of Jupiter as former destroys while latter applies pre3ssures and expands. Shanidev is also called st peter holding the keys of both heaven and hell.
