Sade Sati



The word ‘Sade Sati’ is a Sanskrit word where ‘Sade’ means half and ‘Sati’ means the number ‘seven’. Thus, Sade Sati is a phase according to Indian astrology that lasts for a period of 7 1⁄2 years in the life of an individual. In astrology, Lord Shani (Saturn) is considered as the God of justice. Saturn influences the 12 houses in the horoscope differently. These effects caused by Saturn affect our lives directly. In astrology, Saturn is a ferocious planet, but if Saturn is strong in the horoscope, it gives good results to the natives, while being weak it gives inauspicious results. In India, people are scared of this phase as it is believed to bring a lot of hurdles and hardships in the life of an individual. Along with hardships, this phase is known to be a good teacher that makes one recognize and rise above situations.

What is Sade Sati and what happens in during this period?

Sade Sati is the period of 7.5 years when Saturn travels and traverses the three zodiac signs in the natal chart of an individual. For a period of 2.5 years, Planet Saturn stays in each of the three zodiac signs. Thus, when planet Saturn enters a zodiac sign promptly previous to the Moon’s zodiac sign that very moment the Sade Sati period starts. Sade Sati is further bifurcated into three stages namely the rising phase, the peak phase and the setting phase and the results of Sade Sati vary as per the phase native is going through.

Which phase of Sade Sati is worse?

The transits of the Shani God are divided into three phases as mentioned above known as the first stage or Rising phase, the second stage or the Peak phase, and the third stage named as the Setting phase. Out of the three, the second stage is viewed as the most troublesome period.



Given below are the different types of Sade Sati along with their meanings.

Kantaka Shani

When Saturn transits in the 1st, 4th, 8th and 10th house in the natal chart of an individual from the Moon sign, Lagna sign or the Arudha Lagna sign, a person starts failing in all phases of life. He/ She starts facing losses in personal, professional and social life. This phase of an individual’s life is known as a Kantaka Shani. In this phase, the Shani pricks like a thorn in the feet making an individual limp in all areas of life.

  • When Saturn transits from the Moon sign the person suffers from an emotional imbalance which makes him/her lead to depression and physical illnesses as Moon affects the emotional aspect and at the same time refers to the Sharira (body).
  • When Saturn transits in the Lagna sign, the individual settles on wrong choices and makes inappropriate decisions. The Lagna denotes our intelligence
  • When Saturn transits in the Arudha Lagna, an individual suffers on the professional front and bears financial losses.

Elinati Shani

The period of 7 ½ years of Saturn transit where he stays in each house for the period of 2 and ½ years. Saturn takes about 7 and ½ years to transit from the 12th sign to an individual’s birth sign and to move out of the 2nd house. To further simplify it, planet Saturn takes 2 and ½ years to stay in the 12th sign, 2 and ½ years in the Lagna sign and 2 and ½ years in the 2nd house. This is known as the Elinati Shani.
The Elinati Shani can further be categorised as:

  • Viraya Sani first 2 ½ long periods of Elinati Shani Viraya Sani refers to the initial 2 and ½ years of a long time of Sadesati Shani Dasha. On the off chance that Saturn goes into the twelfth house from the Janma Rashi or natal moon, at that point the time of Viraya Sani starts. Viraya Sani goes on for the first 2 ½ years.
  • Janma Sani – second 2 ½ long period of Elinati Shani Janma Sani is the subsequent 2 and ½ years-long period of Sadesati Shani Dasha. The Janma Sani period starts when Saturn goes into the first house from the Janma Rashi or natal moon. Janma Sani goes on for the second 2 ½ long periods of Sade Sati.
  • Patha Sani – Last 2 ½ long stretches of Elinati Shani Patha Sani (Kudumba Sani), the last 2 and ½ long stretches of Sadesati Shani Dasha, starts when Saturn goes into the second house from the Janma Rashi or natal moon. Patha Sani goes on for third and the last 2 ½ long periods of Sadesati. Find out about the Effects of Patha Shani (third/Last 2 ½ long stretches of Elinati Shani on Native).
    Elinati Shani enters the individual's natal chart thrice in the entire life. These three phases are known as:
  • Mangu Shani – Elinati Shani which enters the natal chart of the native for the first time when he/she is under 30 Years
  • Pongu Shani – second Elinati Shani
  • Marana Shani – third Elinati Shani

Janma Sani

Janma Sani is the subsequent 2 and ½ long period of Sadesati Shani Dasha. The Janma Sani period starts when Saturn goes into the first house from the Janma Rashi or natal moon. It starts during the second phase of 2 ½ long stretches of Sadesati.
People often also search for Elinati Shani for Kumbha Rasi and Elinati Shani for Dhanu Rashi along with the Sade Sati report as per their Rashi (zodiac sign) in the natal chart during the time of their birth.

Ezharai Sani


As per Vedic Astrology, Saturn gives just after-effects of one's acceptable and terrible deeds through suitable boons and discipline. When planet Saturn is poorly positioned in the birth horoscope of an individual it is known as Shani Dosha.

What is Shani Panoti? What is Small panoti meaning?

The transit of planet Saturn for a period of 2.5 years is called the Dhaiyya. It is otherwise called Small Panoti meaning ‘Small Trouble’. This is also referred to as the Kantaka Shani or Ashtama Shani. This travel of Saturn happens when Saturn is travelling through the fourth sign from the birth Moon sign (Kantak Shani), or the eighth sign from the birth moon sign (Ashtama Shani).

Most people say that Sade Sati is a difficult time for an individual who is experiencing it. An individual faces a lot of difficulties and faces failure in almost all sections of life. If Saturn is badly positioned in terrible houses, a person may confront hurdles in every walk of life.

According to these folks, there are numerous individuals who have made incredible progress during the time of Sade Sati.

The effect of Sade Sati should be felt diversely by individuals of various moon signs. It is said that individuals of Moon sign Aquarius don't have any evil impacts from Sadesati, while individuals of Sun sign Leo feel the most malefic effect since Saturn thinks about the Sun, the leader of Leo, to be its unpleasant foe.
