Effects of Shani Mahadasha / Shani Antardasha

Annual Horoscope 2017 for all signs:

There have been various questions on Sadesati and my 1st post here on Sadesati has helped meet most of the expectations. There are also questions about Shani mahadasha and antardasha. Most of the people think that it is a troublesome period in life. Well, it is not correct. Rather, many great people become "great" in the real sense in Shani mahadasha. Shani mahadasha lasts for 19 years so you understand how important this period could be! :) Even Shani Antardasha occupies almost 1/6th part in every mahadasha (19/120) & hence it is of a great importance.
To understand "Shani effect" better (Sadesati), you can also read my article on Sade Sati:
1. Why do you think the masses that didn't even earn 20 Rs per day, spent 10 Rs to watch Bachchan's movie (Single handed movies), why more so from 1970/1971 to 1989/1990 in VERY large numbers? (If you call him Big B or Amit-jee -- you are not his fan -- his fans call him either Amitabh or plain simple Bachchan).
2. Balasaheb Thackeray gets mass frenzy and great mass support all his life but more so from 1980 to 1999. He has Shani 11th house (the best place) to lagna and 3rd house to Moon (Kanya rashi) in aggressive Scorpio sign in uchcha navamansh. Shani is VERY strong as it is 3rd to moon and 11th to Lagna and Surya of Makar (Capricorn).
3. Music director O.P Nayyar had a great success from 1954 to 1973 (19 years). He was not doing bad at all in his Guru mahadasha for for 16 years until 1953/1954 but OmkarPrasad Nayar became “OP” we know today in his Shani Mahadasha.
4. Michael Jackson got stupendous mass support and mass frenzy from 1973 to 1992. (19 years).
5. The best of it all: Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj had 3rd house Shani (Parakram sthan) in uchcha raashi of Tula (Libra).
6. Atal Bihari Wajpayee and Margaret Thatcher have Libra Ascendant with Shani there (1st house)! (Uchcha Shani 1st house)
7. YashawantRao Chavan had Shani in 1st house (self) in Vrushabh rashi. (Shukra signs are great for Shani). He is still regarded the best politician/CM etc of Maharashtra.
8. Sharad Pawar Saheb has Shani in 6th house with Moon (6h house: Service sector, Economic zone)
9. Salman has a very strong Shani in Kumbh rashi (10th house: Career!) with Moon and is running Shani Mahadasha from 2002. Shah Rukh also has a well placed Shani in the 4th house (Sukh-sthan) in Kumbh rashi & running Shani Mahadasha from 2006.
10. Indira Gandhi had 1st house (self) Shani in Kark rashi.
11. Raj Thackeray will start his Shani Mahadasha from 2012. I guess he is going to become a “Saheb” real soon! J
But all these folks suffered/will suffer accidents, injuries and problems in Shani Mahadasha whenever their EGO got better of them in this period. Each one of them had some Ego clashes and suffered due to it. Many of them had severe illness in this period too. Especially when Sadesati coincided with the Shani mahadasha!! :)
Shani's position, its raashi, its nakshatra, its navamansh raashi and position/sthan in the birth-chat, its relation with other planets (aspects/drishti) is very important to analyze the effect of Shani mahadasha / antardasha on your life.
Shani represents or is "karak" of masses, crowds (mass mentality), it-Gadha-cement, slow-but-steady things in life, Peeda (troubles), Dainya (Garibi), Reality Check, Wilamb (delay), night.

Shani is usually well-placed in the horoscope if your past life(s) karma with respect to masses is good. If you have donated money, land to masses and overall helped masses in overall aspects like building hospitals, schools (for poors), Anna-chhatra (Fed poor people): You have good karma with masses and better position of Shani in the Horoscope. The subtle yet omnipotent & omnipresent Law of Karma would make the masses pay you back in this life/birth in equal and opposite manner -- As simple as that.

Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed -- Every force has equal and opposite force but they act in opposite directions. All these are nothing but spiritually – which represents the "law of karma" in scientific manner.

The same way the folks mentioned above must have done a LOT in their past life(s) to do betterment of masses. The masses paid them back in their Shani mahadasha.
Shani in 3rd, 6th and 11th house shows that previous Karma with masses has been good. This Shani usually shows very good Shani mahadasha/antardasha results. Of course, assuming Shani is not in ill-aspects of Ravi (Sun) or Mangal (Mars). 1st, 10th house Shani shows mass-support “overall in life but more so in politics” in the 1st house and in career/workplace/production etc in the 10th place. Again, assuming it is well placed!
WHAT IF WE ARE NOT THAT "LUCKY" and have a badly placed Shani in the horoscope. Well, we would then tend to suffer in the Shani mahadasha at the hands of the masses and also some issues with respect to the chart-houses (& what they represent) of which Shani is the owner or shani is placed in (5th house Santati/marriage, 7th house Marriage/Relationships/Partnerships, 10 house father, 8th house inherited land/money etc etc).

Some Shani formations in the birth-time horoscope Shani could show acute issues in Shani Mahadasha or Antardasha:
(1) Shani close to Mangal or opposite to Mangal or both drushti on each other. As much close degrees as many acute issues with increasing intensity.
(2) Shani close to Moon or Sun or closely aspecting them with 1 3 7 or 10 Drushti. More close the degrees -- more and certain results.
(3) Shani aspecting ANY planets of the horoscope with 1 3 7 or 10 Drushti. More close the degrees -- more and certain results.if planets in 6 8 12 then more severe the issues and results after a lot of hardwork and once the deficit is paid off.
(4) Shani in some Kaarmic constellations such as Moola, Ashlesha & also in some specific degrees such as the first degree of the FIRE signs and the last degree of the water signs (Last degree of Meen -- not much of an issue though as it is DevGani nakshatra - Raj Thackeray -- Rather it shows all around ability.)

The way to reduce Shani mahadasha issues are NOT any Puja or Yadnya or Mantra or even the Gemstones!!! There are two ways to pay off the Shani Mahadasha's past Karma:
1. Thru the sufferings and delays (Santati/ Marriage 5/7 houses etc)
2. Paying off the Karmic Burdens in Shani mahadasha or beforehand.
To pay off the burden some "good" astrologer needs to analyse the horoscope, analyse/find out the direction of the karmic burden and suggest some actions so that masses benefit from your actions. It is better to start as early as possible to avoid severe issues.
1. If 5th house Shani then help friends/relatives in their marriages and also donate to Orphanages/charity for kids.
2. 7th house Shani: Help in marriages (money, time/energy) Help business partners
If Shani in 10th house, do seva of your father no matter how your relation is with him.
3. Donate/spend time for Vruddhashram etc. I hope you get the idea.
If Shani-Mangal close to each other: Help your siblings in life as they need it.
4. Shani Mangal in say Sinvha raashi -- Donate to heart trouble R&D institutes.
5. Ravi-Shani yuti: Help Father/Seniors/Govt and not always oppose them. You have to do what you have to do but whenever it doesn't affect your values, try to adjust with authorities.
6. Shani in 4th house: Take care of your mother, house etc. Same for Shani with Chandra (mother)

The earlier you start with this the lesser the issues in Shani mahadasha.

Of course, regardless of good or bad: Shani Mahadasha requires discipline of all the actions, conservative approach in spending, in eating etc. EGO should be avoided at any cost as folks who do not have much money are spending money for you!! Just imagine if they find out you are being egotist when they are spending time and energy for you.

If Shani mahadasha and Sadesati at the same time affects your temperament and moral too much then HANUMAAN Sadhana is THE ONLY upaay for getting enough courage to face the effects of this. Finally it is YOUR OWN creation of this life (Sadesati) or past life/lives (Mahadasha). :)

Hanuman Sadhana:
a. Have a Hanuman purnakruti poster (as aggressive / balawaan etc as possible) it should be Dakshina-mukhi (facing South).
b. Every morning after bath, concentrate on Hanumaan poster for 3 - 5 minutes (eye to eye contact); No disturbances what so ever.
c. Every evening when it starts to get dark, recite Hanuman stotra and Raam-Raksha (sanskrit).
This will help in a MAGICAL way, Can't explain ALL the effects here for the lack of time BUT it IS magical.

Basic: Mahadasha/Antardasha should be predominantly analysed for past life karma (good or bad). They are about results of the past karma in this life. Instant Karma or "Kriyaman karma" is about actions of this life being paid off in this life and not carried forward -- here current movement of planets helps analysis of that (i.e. when we say 5th Guru, 8th Shani and so on -- they are usually analysed from the Moon Sign). However, all Gochar planets and their relations with the horoscope planets also show the "TIMING" of the fruits of the Mahadasha and Antardasha. So what and how is from Mahadasha and Antradasha and WHEN is to be determined by the Gochar planets.)

Shani enters Kanya/Virgo Sign Today: Bye Bye Cancer/Kirk, Welcome Libra/Tula

Shani has entered Kanya(Virgo) sign today 9th Sept 2009 around IST 10:25 p.m.

This marks the end of Sadesati for folks with the Kirk (Cancer) moon sign and start of sadesati for Tula (Libra )moon sign folks. So Aamir Khan can breath a bit better now and likes of Bachchan Sahab, Akshay Kumar need to watch out! :)

Even Kumbh (Aquarius) raashi folks would have 8th house Shani which also suggest some caution & low risk profile. Simha (Leo) continuesto be under the influenece of sadesati but now the focus would be away from their emotional issues and more on the finances. (Tata Group as a whole is ruled by Leo sign: 1 number)

The folks born from Sept 16th to Oct 15th would also need to watch out as Shani would travel over their Sun. This means getting in to situations that hurt self esteem, ego, self worth quite a bit! Also, backbone, heart issues. Fights with seniors and issues with father's health are a great possibility. Govt related things would not be smooth and there could be some delays.

BUT, Tula (Libra) raashi people despite saadesati would have a GREAT 2010 as Guru would be 5th to Tula raashi. What you call a "success" would be achieved in this year for Tula folks. Similarly, Simha would have a good year in 2010.

Some examples of Sadesati effect:
1. Aamir Khan's career pretty much came to a halt after end of 2002. It took 5th house Guru (Oct 2006 to Nov 2007) for him to achieve something (Taare Jameen Par) more after Lagaan.
2. Akshay Kumar's career was at peak in the past 5 years of 10th and 11th house Shani. 2010 would be good but comedy might not work now. He needs to use next 2.5 years to find something new for next 20 or at least 10 years (back to action etc?).
3. Uddhav-Saheb Thackeray (Simha raashi) entered sadesati in May 2005 and had tough 2.5 years as Shani travelled over his Sun also along with Sadesati. Shani over Sun is as bad or worse than sadesati (Ego, Self esteem is hurt quite a bit).
4. Narayan Rane (Kanya raashi) entered sadesati in July 2007 and you know what happanend after that. Last year it was a very tough learning for him that whatever worked until July 2007 it NOT going to work until at least March 2014. He has Moon Raahu yuti (or is it Sun Raahu?) and this means Kanya Shani would test his temparament QUITE a bit.
5. Raj-saheb Thackeray (Makar raashi): 9th house Shani shows increasing mass-base BUT shani is going to aspect Sun and Mars in 8th house in his horoscope: This shows tussle with Govternment and also siblings. There could be many issues for him from Govt in next 6 months. Even chances of ego getting hurt as Shani is going to aspect Sun and Mars in close degrees in 8th house in his horoscope.

6. Balasaheb Thackeray (Kanya raashi): After very troublesome 12th shani he might surprise folks in 2009 as shani is now in his raashi and Guru is 5th... There IS going to be a pleasant surprise in store for him. But viral/water issues should be taken as Shani in own raashi shows health issues thru water/viral etc.

The Kanya/Virgo Shani change could have following effects on everybody regardless of sign:
1. Worldwide focus of health issues would now slowly move away from heart-trouble, backbone issues to --> Stomach problems, lever, pancreas, acidity, you name it and people over the world would have these issues: Anything to do with stomach.
2. The Kanya Shani is better for the rains than Simvha (Leo) Shani. There would be better rains in the next year. Especially, when Shani is in Hasta nakshatra. The Uttara bhadrapada nakshatra which is shared between Simha and Kanya is not known for much rains so we would have to wait for Shani in Hasta nakshatra. (Shani in cancer -- the water sign - from May 2005 to July 2007 saw catastrophic rains)

For Tula Raashi:

1. 12th house Shani means you have completely leveraged your current skills and now you need to learn new skills in next 2.5 years. 12th house is about planning and planning is what 12th Shani expects from everybody. If you expect the same success from the tools/techniques of past 5 years (10/11 house shani), you would be unpleasantly surprised. Also, you need a break now and people might also have had overexposure to you. So chill. Do not hurry things up and stay calm: Shraddha and Sabury! :)

2. Stomach, Left eye, ankles could hurt in 1st 2.5 years. Eat regularly and healthy stuff. No fast food for you now. :)

3. Your nature of being "fair and balanced" would be challenged and you would need to take some stance for many issues. This is against typical Tula nature as they are good at saying "if you do this, this would happen. if you do that, this would happen". Always trying to balance when they see some excess in the world. Now, you would need to take some stance/alignment on many contentious issues.

I almost forgot!! :)

Simha, Kanya, Tula Folks born on 9, 18, 27, 1, 10, 19, 28, 2, 11, 20, 29 would much have more issues in Sadesati than say 6, 15, 24 born people. Also 8, 17, 26 would not have as many issues as they live lives the way saturn likes! :)
