According to astrology, Saturn is the slowest moving planet. It stays in one sign for about two and a half years. In Vedic astrology, Saturn is called the lord of justice. Saturn has got the title of magistrate among all the nine planets. Of all the planets, only Saturn is the one who has the right to punish, and it is said that this title has been given to him by Lord Shiva himself. Saturn punishes a person according to his deeds.
Those who insult poor people, harass the poor, or misbehave with disabled people, have to suffer more due to the negative effects of Saturn. According to ancient astrology texts, a retrograde planet does not provide auspicious results. According to the principles of Vedic astrology, if a sinful or cruel planet is retrograde, it’s bad effect increases further. According to some astrological texts, the retrograde planet also gives the result of its last house. Saturn doesn’t need to be retrograde in the horoscope of all people, and there are only a few horoscopes in which Saturn is retrograde by birth. In the Saturn Dasha/antardasha of a retrograde planet, one should not do any work without thinking or in haste.
During the period of a retrograde planet, there may be a negative effect on the person’s mind, and he may remain confused. A person remains fearful when Saturn is retrograde, and there may be a lack of self-confidence within him. He can be very suspicious and hesitant, which can also hurt his relationships. There can always be apathy in the mind of such a person. Such a person can be arrogant and consider he better than others. The personal and business relations of such a person are not very good.
Now let’s talk about whether Sade Sati of retrograde Saturn gives auspicious results. The retrogression of the planets is an astronomical phenomenon. In some astrology texts, the retrograde planet has been described as auspicious. While in some texts, the results of the retrograde planet have been described as negative. According to another belief, a retrograde planet always creates delays or obstacles in work. Sade Sati means 7.5 years for Saturn to cross the three signs. Saturn takes 2.5 years to cross one sign. Thus it takes 7.5 years to cross the three signs, which is termed Sadesati. When Saturn transit from the previous house of the natal Moon, in the Moon sign and the second house from the Moon sign, it takes seven and a half years, which in the astrological language is called Saturn’s sade sati. The auspiciousness and inauspiciousness of Saturn sade sati have nothing to do with Saturn’s retrograde. If Saturn is a benefic and karaka planet in your horoscope and is in a strong position in the horoscope, then the sade sati of Saturn will not give you any inauspicious results.
On the contrary, if Saturn is an inauspicious and functional malefic planet for your horoscope and is in a weak state, then the sade sati of Saturn can prove to be troublesome for you. In experience for Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces Ascendant, Saturn’s dhaiya is mostly inauspicious. For these ascendants, Saturn’s Mooltrikon Rashi Aquarius falls in the trik house (6, 8, 12) i.e. in inauspicious houses. So Saturn in these ascendants becomes a malefic and inauspicious planet.
If retrograde Saturn is giving inauspicious effects in your horoscope, then you should keep the following things in mind:
- To remove the inauspiciousness of retrograde Saturn, one should stay away from greed and selfishness.
- Such a person should not have too many ambitions in life.
- He should also keep himself away from wrong deeds.
- One should never insult or humiliate any poor person.
- The person should secretly serve the helpless and poor people.
- Those who work hard to feed themselves and their families should never be insulted.
- Animals and birds, and silent creatures should not be disturbed.
- Don’t snatch the rights of others.
- One should not keep an eye on another’s wealth.
