Is Planet Saturn or Shani Auspicious or Inauspicious?

Everybody is afraid of the wrath of Saturn. Is Saturn always harmful for everybody? No, it is not like that; rather, if a person manages to propitiate this planet, then its maleficence can be reduced substantially.

Generally, malefic planets provide the results of past bad karmas to a person in the form of obstacles & troubles. However, with the right occult remedies one can pacify the malefic effects of planets like Saturn, quite easily. It is believed that Saturn is very harmful if malefic but if it turns favourable, then it can bring unprecedented & humungous positive gains in life. Since the inauspiciousness of Saturn can be reduced therefore it is worshipped extensively.

Saturn and its Generalized Effects on All Ascendant Signs

Being the lord of the 11th house for Aries ascendant, it is a ‘Badhak’ and thus creates problems.

For Taurus ascendant also, being the lord of the 9th house for a fixed Lagna (ascendant), it is a Badhak and does not produce very good results in spite of being the lord of the Kendra and Trikona house of the horoscope.

It is average for Gemini and Virgo ascendants, inauspicious for Cancer and Leo but yields average results for Leo.

It is a Yogakarka planet for Libra ascendant and brings material comforts, peace and prosperity in its major and sub periods.

It produces ordinary results for Scorpio and Sagittarius.

It is auspicious for Capricorn but slightly inauspicious for Aquarius.

It is inauspicious for Pisces.

According to Uttarkalamrita the sub period of Saturn in the major period of Venus is important. This period yields opposite results when Saturn is Yogakaraka but one gets auspicious results if it is weak.

About Shani Sade Sati and Dhaiya

The Sadesati of Saturn is also very effective to give good or bad results. It often troubles the native in various aspects of his/her life. However, this period sometimes makes a person rise very high in his life.

Shani Sade Sati is basically a period when Saturn or Shani transits in the 12th house from the Moon or transits over the Moon or 2nd from the Moon. Similarly, when it transits over the 4th or 8th house from the Moon, it is known as a Dhaiya.

Generally the impact of a Dhaiya in the 4th house from the Moon is weak but the impact of Sade Sati is high. The harmful impacts of Sade Sati or 8th Dhaiya get multiplied if Saturn transits over the 8th or 12th house from ascendant, especially if this Saturn is weak in the birth chart. In addition to that, if Saturn transits over Badhaka planets placed in these negative houses (8th or 12th), the malefic impacts reach its climax. Further, one gets death-like troubles if the periods are that of Venus in Saturn or Saturn in Venus.

If Saturn is Yogakaraka for a native auspicious results are experienced during the Sade Sati. If this Saturn transits through Kendra or Trikona from ascendant or the period in operation is that of a Yogakaraka planet, results of Sade Sati are good.
