is a transit phenomenon which occurs to every one periodically. It is an
expression which in astrological parlance means a period of 7 ½ years when
Saturn transits 3 particular houses successively. These 3 houses are : the 12th,
the 1st and the 2nd from the natal Moon.
According to Jyotish Tatva Prakash :
Free Sadhe Sati Predictions - Saturn Transit 20011-2014
Since it takes roughly 2 ½
years to traverse 3 rashis. For instance, if a person had his Moon in Aries, his
Sadhe-sati began in December 1995 when Saturn entered Pisces. It would end after
7 ½ years when Saturn would have completed the transit of Pisces, Aries and
Taurus. And this would be true for every single person whose moon is in Aries
irrespective of the position of the other planets in the natal chart or in
¼ th of the world population
at every time is undergoing Sadhe-Sati.
Saturn comes back to the
same zodiacal point after nearly every 30 years. Therefore, a person below 30
years experiences his 1st Sadhe-sati. Once it is complete it would come back
after 22 ½ years. Thus, many people go through the 1st, 2nd and the 3rd
Sadhe-satis in one life time. The 1st Sadhe-sati is said to affect the parents,
the 2nd the self and the 3rd the children.
Although the underlying
stance always is that the period of Sadhe-sati is evil, Saturn being the most
malefic planet, yet Sadhe-sati proves to be evil for some, neutral for others
and even good for still others. It depends on several factors in the horoscope
which make different people experience Sadhe-sati differently.
Classics describe the results of
Sadhesati as :
In other words, when Saturn in
transit is in the fourth or eighth house from the Moon sign, it is a period for
illness, quarrels with brothers, foreign stay, hardships and anxiety. During
Sadhesati, Saturn in the first or second house causes ailments related to the
head,heart and legs, fear from the wicked and hardships for sons and cattle.
Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru,
Indira Gandhi Morarji Desai and Charan Singh became Prime Ministers
of India in their respective periods of Sadhe-sati.
The designations of Prime
Ministers is a
very significant achievement for any political person but it is also true that
"Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown." Professional elevation, but
tremendous responsibilities and accompanying stress, strain and anxiety too.
