Shani, the Lord of Saturday

“There is none who gives so much as Shani and none who ruins as much as Shani.” - according to an old Tamil proverb.

“Om pram preem proum sah shanaischaraya namah”

The Astrological Effects Of ‘Shani’ 


Shani is also known as 'Shanaishchara', meaning the slow mover. He passes through a sign for approximately 2.5 years; therefore he takes around 30 years to pass through the complete zodiac.

It is believed that Shani Dev is a great devotee of Krishna and therefore, he does not harm the devotees of Lord Krishna (especially on Saturdays).

Saturn

You must have heard astrologers telling you that you are going through Sade Sati. But many of you might not be aware of what it actually means. The transit (gochar) of Saturn or Shani into birth Moon or twelfth or second from it, is called Shani Sade Sati or Saturn Sade Sati. Sade Sati is a period of 7 ½ years in which Saturn transits into three signs. This is considered highly inauspicious as per Vedic Astrology. The period begins when the Saturn enters one sign prior to the Moon sign of the native and continues up to the next two signs. There is nothing to be afraid of this period as there are ways and means which can help you fight this. There is also a sub-cycle called Dhaiya of Saturn, which only stays for 2 ½ years.

Why Jupiter, Saturn and Mars have additional Aspects?

Get Jupiter, Saturn and Mars Planets
By Mrityunjai Ojha

Have you ever heard an astrologer telling you about some planet looking at other planet? Sometimes, they use the term “Drishti” for this action of looking, which is a Sanskrit word. However, in English, when a planet looks at other planet, the process or action is known as ‘Aspect’.

Each planet has 7th or direct aspect. It means that each planet aspects the planet sitting 7 houses across; and is called direct aspect because 7th is always vertically opposite. But, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars has additional aspects; and in this article, we are going to analyze its reason. This is a question that arises into astrology students' minds and astrology books don't answer it well. This question can be answered in many ways and let me share my views on it.

First way to look at it is based on the distance and placement of the planet in solar system. Mercury, Venus and Moon are placed between Sun and Earth. As Sun is the source of energy and light, Sun’s energy comes to Earth directly from Sun, Mercury, Venus and Moon. Due to this, these planets have only 7th aspect.

On the other hand, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are outer planets, means Earth is placed between Sun and these outer Planets. So, energy from these planets comes to the Earth due to reflection like we throw torch light on mirror and gets the reflection. Due to this reflection, these planets have additional aspects in 3 ways. It depends on their distance from Earth as it becomes wider and squarer as the distance increases, like Mars is 78.3 million km away from the Earth and Mars has 4th and 8th aspects, Jupiter is 624.4 million km away. So aspects from Jupiter becomes a bit much wider, having 5th and 9th aspects.

Saturn is more far away from Earth, that is 1.25 billion km. So, it gets the most wider aspect like 3rd and 10th. We can say that God has placed these planets on a specific position and distance to affect us.

There is another way to understand additional aspects of planet by the way of signification. In astrology, Mars tells about property, happiness, life, death and many more. In astrology, property and happiness are related to 4th house whereas longevity is related to 8th house. That is not all, Mars is a soldier, and protects the land, which is signified by 4th house. Mars is also considered thief that gives unearned and hidden money; these matters come under 8th house. Mars fights with enemy and denotes fight and death, that may be another reason for giving Mars 8th aspect. Seeing this resemblance of Mars to the matters related to 4th and 8th house, I believe that he has been given 4th and 8th aspects.

Similarly, in astrology, Jupiter tells about children, education, intelligence, religion, spirituality, luck etc. Education, children and intelligence come under 5th house; and religion, spirituality and luck come under 9th house.That is the reason Jupiter has been given 5th and 9th aspect.

Saturn tells about will power, Karma and allied things. Will power is attributed to 3rd house in astrology and Karma is attributed to 10th house. No wonder that Saturn has been given 3rd and 10th aspect. Saturn is also about stability, hard-work and patience. These are the matters related to 3rd house in astrology. That may be the reason for giving Saturn additional aspects of 3rd and 10th.

So to conclude, I believe that the placement of planets in solar system is one of the reasons. Another reason could be the resemblance of planets results with certain houses. Astrology is such a vast subject that I am sure there will be more reasons. Still, I hope that I would have been able to satisfy your curiosity to some extent.

Saturn Changes From Retrograde To Direct

By Pt. Hanumman Mishra

The Power of Saturn
Saturn Becomes Direct


As per astrology the position of Saturn in a Kundali is very important. When Saturn goes from retrograde to direct and vice-a-versa then its impact is huge. On 8th July 2013 Saturn in Libra is going to become direct. Retrograde means to move in opposite direction and direct means to move in the right direction. It changes its sign in every two and a half year.

The fact that Saturn is going to become direct from retro will make it rain at many places. The south western places of the country will receive heavy rainfall. At the same time it is predicted that some areas might face a few natural calamities. North eastern states will also see a plenty of rainfall in days to come. There will be inflation in the North eastern states. The prices of seeds will see a high rise. There are chances that crops might get infected by insects. Also, it is likely that the government will change. A few ministers will lose their positions while others will take their place. People will be more tilted towards spirituality and religion. They will also indulge in different religious activities.

A Cloud on the Horizon for Sahara Shri Subrata Roy

By Pt. Hanumaan Mishra
Sahara
It’s raining troubles for the Sahara Shri Subrata Roy. Hostile planets, upset stars; looks like he is headed to a Gorge. Let us see, if he is able to take on the challenges which the stars are throwing at him. Failing which he might lead to a downfall...

We always emphasize on the fact that the planets which give us pain, also provide us the medicine for that pain. In case of Sahara Shri this seems to be true word by word. It is said that the Saturn sitting in the 10th house provides fame and reputation on a grand scale. Even a person coming from a modest background will go on to achieve great heights in life. According to Lal Kitab Saturn in this house always gives the best result. However, if the native is doing something related to Sun and Mars then the results might be bad. As a matter of fact, Lal Kitab says in harsh words that such a situation can bring negative results for the native.

As per the principles of Lal Kitab, the investment of Sahara Group in real estate and sports will not be considered good. However, there are a few astrologers who are there to guide the Sahara Group, but the question arises as to why they have let the Group go for such attempts. In the Kundali of Sahara Shri Subrata Roy, Markesh is in the planet Mars. This is a positive indication which will produce some good results. Since the Markesh is in Mars, it is not a fact which can be ignored.

This can be explained more clearly with the help of an example. Let us say that we have a family rivalry with another family. That family never skips an opportunity to pull you down. A new member is born in that family who grows up to be is a fearless and strong person. That person develops a strong friendship with you and your family by helping you at the time of need. Although he is your friend but that still does not mean that you will make him the owner of your family. But, Sahara Shri Subrata Roy has committed this mistake by doing things related to Mars and Sun. Maybe he thought that Mars had a Rajyog in his Kundali which would help him to earn a lot of profits.

Keeping this in mind he gave away the ownership to that fearless friend. Though I don’t know him personally yet based on his Kundali I can say that whenever he has attempted any task on the basis of the significance of Mars the results are always unfavorable. Whenever he has tried to be daring to accomplish a task on a grand scale, he has never succeeded. Daring and fearlessness are traits of Mars and actions taken on the basis of Mars are not favorable for Sahara Shri Subrata Roy. Mars and Sun are considered to be the significators of strength and fearlessness. The person with Saturn and Marakesh Mars in the 10th House should not lock horns with Sun and Mars. Also, he should not do any task related to this. Sahara Shri Subrata Roy has committed this mistake.

Sun indicates that he should not lock horns with the people at the influential positions. Mars indicates tasks related to sports like cricket. Owning a cricket team is related to Mars. Now the question arises that the Sahara has previously dressed the Indian cricket team with its name on the uniform. But that was the good effect of Mars as it was that was a task supported by Mars but was not related to Mars. However, the decision to own a cricket team will not be that favorable. The real estate tasks are related to Mars and Sun and they are supported by the Sun. This prediction is based on Saturn and Mars. Normally, all the astrologers have a Kundali of Subrata Roy which might not be accurate. However, the place of Saturn will still be the same and the Marakesh in Ascendant will also be auspicious. Therefore, I have based my predictions on Saturn and Mars. On the basis of the transit of Sun, Saturn and Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node), it can be said that the time period from May to July will not be very good. If the remedial measures of the related planets are not performed on time then they might get the results of the 12th house. The 12th house is related to abroad, hospital and jail. This means Subrata Roy can get any of these results.
