People get fearful when they hear about Sade Sati of Shani and Dhaiya. Due to Saturn being tagged as a cruel planet in Vedic astrology, people have a belief that it brings pain, but it is not the case. Lord Shani is hailed as the Punisher or Penitent, which is why he is also called as the Justice-loving Judge in Kaliyug. He churns out the fruit of every action, good or bad, done by a native in this world. Shani has no claim to position, status and prestige, as it doesn’t matter to him. He punishes every person equally and gives out justice.

Saturn is pleased when a person asks for forgiveness for his crimes and becomes determined to do good deeds. At the same time, Saturn is very cruel when it comes to punishing a man for his sins. Because when Shani punishes, he deprives one of wealth, honor, prestige and all amenities.

Shani Sade Sati


Sade Sati means seven and a half years. All Navagrahas transit in 12 zodiac signs. The journey period of planets in a zodiac sign is different. Among them, Saturn's duration is the highest, because it transits for about two and a half years in a zodiac sign. When it makes a transit from birth moon sign from twelfth house, rising phase of Shani Sade Sati begins. When it transits over the birth moon sign, peak phase of Shani Sade Sati remains. Now, when it enters in the second house from moon sign, setting phase of Shani Sade Sati begins. When it gets out from this house, Shani Sade Sati ends.

As Shani remains in a zodiac sign for about 2.5 years, so its journey in these three houses adds up to 7.5 years. That is why it is called Sade Sati. apart from that, when Shani enters in fourth and eighth house from birth moon sign, it is called Dhaiya or CHoti Sade Sati. its duration is 2.5 years. 


Remedies for Shani Sade Sati


The simplest way to avoid the inauspicious effects of Shani Sade Sati is by performing auspicious deeds and repenting for all bad deeds ever done. Apart from this, religious and Vedic remedies can also be carried out to avoid such malefic effects.

  • To appease Lord Shani, worship him on Saturday. Along with that, offer food made in Sarso or Mustard oil to poor, needy, labour and dog.
  • Use mustard oil, black salt, surma, camphor (kapoor), kajal made by camphor, black sesame, black urad, iron nails, perfumes etc. when worshipping Shani Dev and donate them as well.
  • To get the blessings of Shani Dev, it is beneficial to read Shani Chalisa, Hanuman Chalisa or Dashrath Krit Shani Stotra on every Saturday.
  • Pour mustard oil in an iron vessel, see your reflection in it and donate the vessel. It is called Chaya Patra Daan.
  • Donation of items related to Saturn planet should be done in Saturn's Hora and Saturn's nakshatras (Pushya, Anuradha, Uttara Bhadrapada) on Saturday at noon or in the evening.
  • Respect your maternal uncle and the elderly people. Always keep your employees or servants happy.
  • Chant the Shani Beej Mantra for getting rid of Shani Dosha. Mantra - “ॐ प्रां प्रीं प्रौं सः शनैश्चराय नमः / oṃ prāṃ prīṃ prauṃ saḥ śanaiścarāya namaḥ”.
  • To please Saturn, you can also chant this mantra - "ॐ शं शनैश्चराय नमः/oṃ śaṃ śanaiścarāya namaḥ”.
