Shani Mahadasha /Sani(Saturn) : 19 years period of hard work, sincerity and disipline

Shani Mahadasha /Sani (Saturn) is for 19 years

Planet Saturn/Shani Dev

Planet Saturn

This is the 19 years time period of hard work and persistence. Saturn emphasizes on strict discipline and labor by creating delays and difficulties and added responsibilities on the person. In short, this time period enables a person to lay the foundation to become strong and efficient, and reap the rewards in coming years.

If the Saturn is well placed, it brings honor, authority and prosperity as a result of one`s work. In case it is afflicted, the time period brings major difficulties, sorrows and frustrations. Bone diseases, fractures, skin problems, rheumatism also come in the play as ill effects of the Dasha.

This is a period when the person faces their limitations, and becomes aware of the possibility of their own mortality. Detachment from worldly concerns, spirituality, concentration, dutifulness, honesty, sincerity and constancy will be emphasized. Ill health, death of loved ones and/or the fear of those things will occur.

Shani Dev/Planet Saturn

Shani Dev

The more attached the person is to material things and pleasures the more difficult the Saturn Mahadasha will be.

But great success is also possible as Saturn gives responsibility, ambition, practicality and perseverance.

Hospitals, old people, legacies and inheritance, wills and money matters will be prominent.

This period can bring pressure and suffering in order for the person to face reality and have compassion for others and spiritual growth.

If Saturn is weakly placed then health problems could include chronic and painful diseases, cancer, skin diseases, paralysis, arthritis, gout, emaciation, indigestion, dyspepsia, insanity, impotence in men, asthma, retention of urine and intestinal obstruction.

  • During the Shani Mahadasha, some sort of authority in the city, village or society may be acquired.
  • One may become the leader of a lowly community.
  • Modesty, intelligence and knowledge is enhanced, inclination towards charity and skilled in arts and crafts.
  • Happiness may be gained from the acquisition of some ancient place.
  • One may be endowed with vehicles, clothes, gold and wealth.
  • Faith in God and interest in the construction of temples may prevail.
  • One may bring name and fame to the family.
  • Bliss of the family, increase of valor prevails and journeys are undertaken.
  • There may be gains from animals, camels, asses, goats, birds, old ladies and coarse grains.

  7. Francis Martin says:

    Hi Pandit:

    I’m running my Sani Mahadasa currently. I went through a horrific and destructive 7 1/2 years of Sani Sade from 2002 to 2008. However I’m still suffering severely from the sani ill-effects namely loss of a secured financial job, heavily indebted from financial losses, declining health, slendered in my name and personal reputation, back-stabbed and betrayed, loss of diets and other ill-related issues.

    Currently I’m struggling in a survival job working a grocery store, my physical, mental, psychological states are unmentionables – constant fatigue, unsettled, worried, etc.

    Please kindly let me know what will happen to me till the end of this terrible 19 years of sani mahadasa. sani has been destroying me whenever his planet hit me. Will I end up in poverty, sadness and TRAGIC DEATH !!?? Please remember that sani is the DEVIL in addition to his cohorts RAHU and KETU.

    I have been praying to Sri Hanumanji/Sri Maruti, Sri Bairava, Sri Ganeshaji and other kind and helpful Hindu deities to help me for survival and to look for a life-time financial career with better personal attributions and success. My date of birth is August 31, 1955 at 1.32am in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Currently I am living in the City of Toronto, Province of Ontario, Canada.

    Please help me.

    Thank you very much.

    Francis Martin, September 21, 2011.

      Hi Francis,

      I can very well understand what you are going through as I am already 14 years into Shani’s maha dasha and I know what you are going through as the effects on me have been simila to what you are going through and in addition to that I almost lost both my eyes and suffered from TB twice in this mahadasha and I believed 100% that I was going to die at one point in the begening of year 2007 and was ready for the inevitable but my health recovered to a great extent and by the grace of almighty I am doing ok health wise and I am not complaining financially either… Times have been tough and I feel whatever Ive been though was all for good and made me the person I am today which I consider to be a far better then what I was before.. I have become an extremely modest man and even my wife says I have changed for good :)
      I have experienced Shani’s full force both ways although I believe there are some goodies instore for me in the last 5 years that are still left of my shani’s period as its been 14 years already …. I hope things get better for you Francis but remember one thing (I know what I am talking about) that you would have to become a better person before things get better for you!

      I live in Delhi (India) and I am gonna be visiting Toronto begining of 2012 and wouldnt mind sparing an hour or two over a cup of coffee or something if you want some first hand account of what I have experienced as it might help you out of your situation! Let me know either way..

      May Shani maharaj have mercy on you!

      • Francis Martin says:

        Hi Parminder:

        I just came across your reply on what I wrote in Astropeep. Indeed I would be more than happy to meet you when you’re in Toronto. My personal email address is

        There have been several unpleasant and negative situations, occupationally and financially, happened in these few days since this Sunday past to me. I had ABSOLUTE difficulties in a job interview this Monday past, I was forced to resign from an unpleasant grocery job last week and I have difficulties in this current restaurant night job (for survival) for a picky, demanding and boastful Ethiopian chef.

        I WILL NOT bow to sani, but keep praying to Shree Hanuman/Maruti, Shree Devi Santoshi-Ma, Shree Kratekraya (Subramanya), Shree Ganesha-ji, Shree MahaLakshmi-Narayan, Shree MahaVishnu, Shree MahaGaruda and Shree MahaSaraswati for my better future. I’ve suffered ENOUGH from that SATANIC sani even when I was in Malaysia. I’m NOT bowing to him since I know fully well that Shree Maruti/Hanuman and Shree Kratekraya are kind-hearted and sincere in assisting and in helping sani’s victims.

        sani is nothing but Satan’s protege and boastful. Take a look of what he did to King Birendra of Nepal !!!!!!

        Please contact me directly via my personal email.

        Thanks again, Parminder.

  31. ram
    with my experience I would say shani mahadasha for a person will start exactly two years before the actual date its going to start. For example if your shani mahadasha is starting in march 2017, the sympotms of shani mahadasha will start in march 2015. Firstly some thing very good will happen like a job change,transfer which you are asking for etc., and that will ultimately end up with a mess finally losing job. One might lose money. I would say it starts with small symptoms but ends with a thunder probably in few months.Every thing will be finished in 3 to 4 months. I would say probably shani would leave you on streets by the time the actual mahadasha starts. I would advise readers to very very careful and take all preacautionery measures before the actual mahadasha period starts and do not be passive. Measures like not resigning the job etc. I am not an astrologer but a lay man. Probably I might have read hundreds of articles about people suffering due to this mahasha. It is strange to see astrologers taking example of Amitabachan and trying to tell us shani will bring good luck. Firstly you loose every thing and you will be on streets. People who love you will hate you and move away from you. Even parents, brothers, sisters etc.
