Lord Sani

Shani Dev The planet Shani The tallest statue of shani Dev in the world

Lord Sani (spelt Shani in South India) is the son of Ravi (Sun God) and Chaya Devi. Hence, Sani is also popular as Chayanandu. Sani represents the planet Saturn in our Solar System and the Saturday of any given week. He stands for justice. His affects are more severe than other and lasts longer due to the reason that Sani moves very slowly. Every human being in the universe enjoys both joys and sorrows according to the karmic effects in the past life. Sani plays an important and special role amongst all the planets. Jaimini Maharishi has opined that the effect of Sani will be critically important, particularly in the present Kaliyuga age. Information about Sani is widely available in various Puranas and dharma sastras.

The planet Shani or Saturn revolves around the Sun in about 30 years, which means it passes through all the 12 rashis or moonsigns in 30 years. Thus Shani Dev spends on an average about two and half years in each rashi or moon sign.

Unlike the common perseption, Lord Sani never unnecessary causes hurdles to anyone. It all depends upon the punya and papa effect that the native done in the previous janmas. If the native causes problems and hurdles to any one in the previous janma, Lord Sani will present janma causes problems with the dosha like Sade Sani, Dayya etc. If Sani in uttastana or in His friendly house, the native will be blessed with all earthly pleasures like heath, wealth and so on else the native will face hurdles, problems, litigations and unnecessary disputes. If natives are consistently suffering from undue problems, it may be construed that he is under the grip of Sani. However, we can reduce the negative effects of Sani by pleasing Him in different ways and means so that we can lead a good and comfortable life. It is our endevour to give some information about Sanis birth and other details for the benefit of the natives.

Shani in vedic Astrology

According to Vedic astrology, Shani Deva is one of the nine Navagraha or planets. Shani is considered to be the strongest malefic and a stern teacher who represents patience, effort, endeavour, and endurance; and who brings restrictions and misfortunes. However, a favorably-placed Shani on the horoscope of a person stands for a strong career, healthy life and everything positive for that person. Shani placed "unfavorably", on the other hand, denotes troubles in all of the above.

This movement of Shani through the moon signs carries great importance in Hindu astrology. The effect of Shani starts when it enters the previous rashi/moonsign to one's own birth rashi and stops when it leaves the rashi/moonsign after one's birth rashi. The total period of 7.5 years is called Saadesaati or "Elanata Shani", and is typically a period of great difficulty. When it occurs for a person foregoing Shani Maha Dasha the malefic effects of the planet are highly pronounced. It is said that Shani can reduce even a king to a pauper during such period.

Shani rules the signs Makara (Capricorn) and Kumbha (Aquarius), is exalted in Tula (Libra) and is debilitated in Mesha (Aries). Mercury, Venus, Rahu, Ketu are considered friendly towards Shani or Saturn, while the Sun, Moon and Mars are enemies. Guru or Jupiter maintains neutral relations with Shani. Shani is the lord of three nakshatras or lunar mansions: Pushya, Anuradha and Uttara Bhadrapada.

Sani Peyarchi 2012 Palangal

Sani is the farthest planet visible from the Earth with the naked eye and its rings are certainly its most outstanding feature. The rings are symbolic of limitations and represent the parameters of the Law of Karma. According to Vedic astrology Sani will be entering the sign of Rasi Thulaam on Nov 15th, leaving the sign of Rasi Kanni where it has spent the last two years and some months challenging all of our conventional ideas about health and healing and ensuring that we embrace the virtues of modesty, thrift and caution.

Sani is the taskmaster of the zodiac whose karmic lessons, once learned, remain with each of us throughout our lives. He represents reality, challenges, structure, foundation, obstacles, hard work, obligations, restrictions, and limitations. He is cold, distant, stoic, determined & persistent. His function, as he transit (peyarchi)s through the houses of our birth charts, is to teach us our life lessons.

Rasi Thulaam is the sign of relationships and balance between two polarities. Sani will be in its exaltation when it enters Rasi Thulaam. Sani in Rasi Thulaam also brings a desire for charm and a harmonious approach to life. Sani desires to build structures, and in Rasi Thulaam Sani wants structures that will build relationships and alliances. This will give a person with the potential to relate to others in ways that are proper and fair no matter what the circumstances may be.

Sani's peyarchi can be depressing and burdensome to some, and can be times of material success and wealth to others. This usually indicates the need to take on responsibility in relationships, the nature of which is to point to the path of orientation necessary for spiritual growth. Limitations and blockages in relationships on the personality level are likely until one learns to go beyond the urge to control others for purely personal reasons. While Sani is passing through Rasi Thulaam it will be evaluating our progress in all Venus-related issues. Much attention is given to Rasi Thulaam and Venus's rulership over relationships, partnerships, and all kinds of alliances will be both forged and tested under the influence of Sani in Rasi Thulaam. Other aspects of Rasi Thulaam include beauty, and with Sani (aging) in Rasi Thulaam (beauty), we may find ourselves faced with some difficult facts about the processes that we use to stave off the aging process.

That includes co-workers who may be part of your team. There will be confrontations with others, and what you will learn is how to confront and what you will or will not put up with. If your bound Rasi Mesham issues haven't been squared away, the test will be harder because there is that much more inner work to be done.

Your opponent is liable to be very nasty, and your attorney might be nastier. For a relationship to be a successful, it takes a combination of the 5th house (self expression) and the 7th house of relationships.
