1-It is #Saturday!

Time to understand and appreciate one of the most #Mystical #Planets - #Saturn!

Let’s dwell upon an event

..which at any given point of time

..close to 20 to 25% people in the #Zodiac circle go through – the #SadeSati! (1/19)

2-Everyone in #India knows, that one of the most important way through which #Saturn influences our lives is through #SadeSati

#SadeSati means a period of Seven –and-a-half years in #Hindi.

In the #Gujrati community it is called #Panoti. (2/19)

3-And though none of the standard classical texts of #VedicAstrology talk about it

..millions of Indians are paying their #Astrologers

..in some way or the other – about matters relating to #SadeSati

What is the #Astrological #Event behind the #SadeSati?! (3/19)
4-The SadeSati is the period of approximately seven and a half years

..during which Saturn moves through the three #Constellations of the #Zodiac

..which are closest to your #Moon (4/19)

5-The constellation where the Moon sits,

..and the two constellations that flank it on both the sides. (5/19)

6-For example, if your Moon occupies #Capricorn,

..your the Seven-and-a-Half will consist of those years

.. during which Saturn moves through the constellations #Sagittarius, #Capricorn and #Aquarius.

The most jerky period is when the #SadeSati begins. (6/19)
7-You will feel as if someone has flipped a switch

Saturn promptly begins to cramp your life as soon as he enters the constellation just before the one, in which your Moon sits (7/19)

8-The Moon is clearly one of the most significant planet in #Jyotish

..in the sense that it is the planet of juiciness, of #Amrita. (8/19)

9-The Sun is the planet of light

That's true.

But Sun's light is so intense that it burns.

Only the Moon's light cools and nourishes, (9/19)

10-A strong Moon in a horoscope

..will generally fill that life with an abundance of nectar

..producing a happy, 'Juice-filled existence',

..an afflicted Moon will afflict your ability to be satisfied. (10/19)

11-Saturn, the most astringent of the planets,

..dries up that lunar nectar

..squeezes and shuts the doors to enjoyment (11/19)

12-Among the juices' of life - the foremost is the sweetness we get from love..

..and one way in which Saturn dries up our lives

..is by separating us from our loved ones

..those who protect us from the cold and cruel world. (12/19)

13-Hence, people often lose their grandparents during the first SadeSati

..which cannot begin later than 23 years of age... (13/19)

14-They lose their parents during the second period

..and are then strangled themselves by Saturn during his third passage

..if indeed they are fated to live that long.

This is one of the reasons why Saturn is the most feared and respected of the Nine Planets. (14/19)
15-The origins of this principle of interpretation are unclear

..though the idea of seven years of bad luck surfaces in many cultures. (15/19)

16-The time span of the period also has a certain developmental significance

..in that a child is mainly involved before age seven and one-half

..in fundamental physical development and obtaining primary
Skills (16/19)

17-D permanent teeth arise and adult emotions begin to develop between ages seven and one-half and fifteen

..puberty, a prime time individuation and development of the thinking mind, occupies age fifteen to age twenty-two and one-half

..and so on. (17/19)

18-In Western Astrology they refer to something as #SaturnReturn -when Saturn returns to where he sat on your date of birth

#VedicAstrology believes that the sade sati is usually a gloomier, more challenging experience than is the Saturn return. (18/19)
19-In those horoscopes where Saturn is a positive influence, promising material prosperity or career advancement,

..the Saturn return is likely to enhance rather than detract from these indications.

The SadeSati however, creates trouble for almost everyone (19/19)
