Decoding the Mystery of Sade Satti
The very term Sade Satti has everyone running to the hills for cover or rather running to the nearest known expert or astrologer. But what really is Sade Satti and what are the important facts one must know?
To many, Sade Satti is a terrifying word and brings a strong sense of foreboding as well as dreads in the hearts of the people. Sade Satti occurs when Saturn or Shani transits through the 12th, 1st, 2nd House in one’s horoscope chart. This is natal moon chart where the Moon’s position and placement in the chart is taken into consideration.
Saturn or Shani as it is popularly known takes two and half years to pass through each sign, i.e. in totality takes 30 years to make a complete round of the zodiac signs. When it passes through three signs, it completes seven and half years. Therefore, the term Sade means half and Satti means seven which makes up Sade Satti or seven and half years.
The most common belief is that Sade Satti is a period of severe hardships, dissatisfactions, depressions, ailments, differences, disputes, disappointments, disharmony and even undesirable results. But this is a myth!
Lord Shani or the planet Saturn does not always behave cruelly towards people who are under the influence of Sade Satti. This completely depends on the individual’s horoscope. If Saturn or Shani is the yoga karaka, there will be no problem in the individual’s life. It is common for a person to experience 2-3 periods of Sade Satti in their life span. However, some suffer from 4 which is very rare. It may reappear after 25 years from its first occurrence.
The influence of Sade Satti
Life is uncertain and during the Sade Satti or 7 ½ years of Saturn’s transit, individuals do face some amount of tensions and issues, one does not need to claim that they might die! The route to success is never an easy one and Lord Shani or the period of Sade Satti actually never interferes with one’s success.
Keep calm and carry on...
In reality, many numbers of people have gained a lot of fame, success, prosperity and achieved greatly. It is a period where one’s patience and skills are tested to the maximum. Therefore, people should go about their daily duties without cribbing or crying about the likes and dislikes.
The person who goes about their duties with diligence is least affected by Sade Satti and achieves greatness during this period. However, if one happens to behave in the most haphazard manner, i.e. cribbing, crying, procrastinating and even shirking work and duties, they will suffer the wrath of Sade Satti.

Seek astrology consultation
However, to decide what exactly the effects are, it is best to consult an astrologer. An astrologer needs to consider the following scenarios:
Is Saturn or Shani benefic or malefic in the individual’s chart?
Is Shani under the aspect of any benefic or malefic planet?
What is the individual’s dasha at this time? Does Shani play a role here?
Is the transit of Saturn under Veda from planet Jupiter?
Under which nakshatra does the planet Saturn fall in the horoscope chart?
Is the individual’s chart strong? How many benefic planets in Kona and Kendras? Are the Lagna and Lagna lords well placed?
How influential is the Lagna on Saturn?
The result of every individual’s chart will differ. For some, the results will be positive while some will be under the negative influence.
During the first cycle of Sade Satti, when Shani or Saturn transits the 12th house from the moon for 2 and half years, the results, harsh ones, are felt by the individual’s parents and close family members. Family members will suffer from eye-related ailments. Saturn, when posited throws the 3rd aspect on the 2nd house, it will affect the overall financial situation of the family. There will be an increase in expenditure. And due to the 7th aspect on the 6th house, the family will suffer from debts. Additionally, due to the 10th aspect on the 9th house, it will affect the overall fortune of the individual and their father might suffer financial setbacks as well.
During the second cycle, when Saturn transits the 1st house from the moon, again for two and half years, it affects the individual this time around. Saturn throws 7th aspect on the 7th house and the 10th aspect on the 10th house. Therefore, the health of the individual is affected. It weakens the personal finances, miseries, separation of family, loss of friends, irrational expenditure, and failure in business dealings, humiliation, and loss of self-respect as well as self-confidence.
It is important to understand that these results occur when only Saturn acts in the most malefic way in the individual’s horoscope. It is said that only 5% or less feel all these negative effects.

In the third cycle, Saturn transits in the 2nd house from Moon. It plays havoc on one’s health, even affects the children and may cause a fatality if this stage occurs in the later years.
