Shani/Sani(Saturn) Mahadasha is for 19 years
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.
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.
