Sade Sati (7½ years period of
difficulties & hardships)
- When Saturn is traversing through
the 12th sign from the birth sign it is called the first "Adichki" (2½
years) of Sade Sati,
- When Saturn passes through the birth sign, it is the 2nd or
- When Saturn passes through the 2nd sign from the birth sign it
is the 3rd & last "Adichki" of Sade Sati.
(e.g. if your birth sign is Libra, Sade Sati will begin when
Saturn enters Virgo and the Sade Sati will end when Saturn leaves Scorpion)
Depending on the Strength of Horoscope, during Sade Sati a person has to undergo
hardships. Things that are planned, do not work out. Unexpected difficulties,
problems & issues pop up. Nothing seems to be helping.
Graha Shant can help the person boost his/her moral & give
strength to fight out the unfavorable situation.
Both the Janma (i.e. at the time of birth) graha & current
graha (gochara) are to e studied if they are originally not favorable or time
being not favorable.
