Sade Sati in the 12 bhava

Shani Main Page


The precious result of Sade-Sati’s exhausting disappointment, sadness, and even vicious betrayal, is obtainment of an anchored emotional honesty and a refreshed ability to make life choices that respect one’s intuition and true needs -- rather than pandering to the limiting fears of others.

Shani samchara Mesha


Chandra-Meza * comforted by rhythmic forward pursuit

Shani rules Makara 10th-from-Chandra, and Shani rules Kumbha 11th-from-Chandra.

nichha amza for Professor Shani.

Key triangulation relationships

  • Mangala who rules Vrizchika is friendly * mitrugraha * toward Chandra
  • Mangala who rules Vrizchika is neutral * samagraha toward Shani.

Shani does not like to teach in this classroom. The environment of Meza is controlled by Shani's enemy, the warlike and competitive Mangala. Nevertheless during this transit Professor Shani must deliver His lessons in this hostile environment.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.

As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani samchara Vrishabha

Chandra-Vrishabha * uttama * moolatrikona 4-30* comforted by rhythmic historical tonal values

Shani rules Makara 9th-from-Chandra, and Shani rules Kumbha 10th-from-Chandra.

Shani = yogakaraka graha counted from the Chandra-lagna

Key triangulation relationships

  • Zukra who rules Vrishabha is adversarial * shatrugraha * toward Chandra
  • Zukra who rules Vrishabha is friendly * mitragraha toward Shani.

Shani samchara Mithunaya

Chandra-Mithunaya * comforted by rhythmic signal messaging

Shani rules Makara 8th-from-Chandra, and Shani rules Kumbha 9th-from-Chandra.

Frozen communications. Frozen messages. Seizure and halt of the customary comforting rhythms of evangelism, announcements, reports, and the grounding influence of Daily Chatter. Scarcity of siblings. Rigid, unyielding resistance to the flow of information.

Sade-sati in any rashi is likely to produce emotional scarcity. One may feel a significant insufficiency of sympathy, empathy, sensitivity, caretaking, parenting, sheltering, nourishment, roots, anchoring, belongingness, security.

Unique to Shani's journey via Mithunaya, expect increasingly rigid, inflexible, law-imposing behaviors of Mithuna-folk such as siblings, neighbors, those in the vicinity (vecinos), co-workers, the corporate or institutional department, team-mates, commercialists, advertisers, marketers, collaborators, messengers, writers, publishers, journalists, announcers, presenters. Shani pressures all those concerned with signaling and information transactions.

Shani rules Makara 8th-from-Chandra, and Shani rules Kumbha 9th-from-Chandra. Therefore during His contact with Chandra-Mithunaya * comforted by rhythmic signal messaging , the lawful but uncaring Shani is likely to emphasize emotionally guided philosophy and theory (9, mulatrikona stronger effect) along with the emotional shock (8) leading to the necessary and scheduled transformations of emotional identity.

When Shani is viewing Chandra, from Shani's own eye, He is typically seeing Chandra as an enemy. However, Professor Shani considers Mithunaya, the rashi that is supervised by Shani's mitra-graha Budha, to be friendly territory.

Combined with the helpful fact that Shani's mulatrikona Kumbha also matches 9th-from-Chandra, Shani's transit via Mithunaya is typically less aggrieved than sade-sati occurring in hostile rashi.

Essentially, Shani wants a social order that has strict rules with no exceptions. Lord Chandra, who signifies family-first loyalty and localized ethnic cultures, poses a threat to Lord Shani's systematic social governance. Therefore when Professor Shani is required to teach in a classroom which contains Professor Chandra -- even when the rashi is friendly -- regardless of the bhava, unsympathetic un-empathetic, lawful Shani tries to impose SLOW, retarding, delaying, bureaucratic, institutional rules upon the normally QUICK, mercurial, mercantile, transactional realm of Chandra-Mithunaya.

When Chandra occupies Mithunaya, one is often a highly intuitive, responsive, and reactive communicator. Chandra-Mithunaya has sensitive feelings particularly about topics such as sibling-cousin-cohort, team dynamics, signaling and messaging, and all matters of information management.

Commercial, explanatory, documenting behavior usually and reliably can offer a rhythm of comforting routine. Family-like bonds are often formed between members of the ensemble, neighborhood, team-unit, or cohort. Shani will keep pressuring, cooling, darkening, drying, stiffening, and creating scarcity. But in Mithuna-rashi, He is imposing His characteristic stricture in a quickly adaptive, conversational, informational, instructional environment that does not naturally accept His insistence on constant testings and proving. Therefore His conformist, legalistic pressures may seem somewhat draconian (Shani-Draco) during a Sade-Sati afflicting Chandra-Mithunaya.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani samchara Karkata

Shani rules Makara 7th-from-Chandra and Shani rules Kumbha 8th-from-Chandra

Chandra-Karkata * comforted by rhythmic tidal maternal soothing * swakshetra


FrozenTamanawasFalls_ColumbiaGorgOregon2017.JPG

Frozen Tamanawas Falls in the Oregon Columbia River Gorge 2017

Frozen homeland. Frozen music. Seizure and halt of the customary comforting rhythms and routines. Desiccation of the soothing, flowing river of daily caretaking. Coldness, stiffening and rigidity in the emotional patterns of parenting and protectiveness. Scarcity of housing , dry irrigation, and straitened circumstances of emotional boundary defense.

Sade-sati in any rashi is likely to produce emotional scarcity. One may feel a significant insufficiency of sympathy, empathy, sensitivity, caretaking, parenting, sheltering, nourishment, roots, anchoring, belongingness, security.

Unique to Shani's journey via Karkata, expect increasingly rigid, inflexible, law-imposing behaviors of Karkata-folk such as parents, police, transportation drivers, gate-keepers, boundary patrol, farmers, fisher-folk, real-estate and property owners, patriots, defenders, caretakers, environmentalists, schoolteachers, pujari-ritualists. Shani pressures all those concerned with security, protection and rituals, rites, rhythms, ruts, routines.

Shani rules Makara 7th-from-Chandra and Shani rules Kumbha 8th-from-Chandra. Therefore during His contact with Chandra, lawful but uncaring Shani is likely to emphasize emotional contracts (7) and emotional shock (8, mulatrikona stronger) leading to the necessary and scheduled transformations of emotional identity.

When Shani is viewing Chandra, from Shani's own eye, He is typically seeing Chandra as an enemy. Professor Shani considers Karkata, the rashi that is supervised by Chandra-Soma, to be hostile territory; and when Karkata contains Chandra-Karkata it puts Shanaicarya into extra high fear mode.

Essentially, Shani wants a social order that has strict rules with no exceptions. Lord Chandra, who signifies family-first loyalty and localized ethnic cultures, poses a threat to Lord Shani's systematic social governance. Therefore when Professor Shani is required to teach in Professor Chandra's classroom of Karkata, regardless of the bhava, unsympathetic un-empathetic, lawful Shani tries to impose bureaucratic, institutional rules upon the realm of Karkata.

But sensitive feelings, comforting routines, and family bonds are much stronger than social regulations in the Karkata world. Shani will keep pressuring, cooling, darkening, drying, stiffening, and creating scarcity, but in Kulira-rashi He is imposing His characteristic program in a flowing, moist, nourishing environment that does not naturally accept His regime. Therefore His pressures may seem particularly draconian (Shani-Draco) during a Sade-Sati afflicting Chandra-Karkata.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Professor Shani and Professor Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani samchara Simha

Shani transits contact Chandra-Simha * comforted by rhythmic creative display

Shani rules Makara 6th-from-Chandra and Shani rules Kumbha 7th-from-Chandra

Importantly for Chandra-Simha, Professor Somana rules 12th-from-Chandra

Brilliant, unique, super-hot Professor Surya who is the ruler of Chandra-Simha sees cold, dark, one-law-for-all Professor Shani as an adhi-shatru-graha * arch-enemy.

Samchara Simha-Shani is fearful of Light and punitive toward uniqueness when Shani enters dramatic, political Simha. Suffering fear, He tries to oppress via threats of punishment against those who would not conform to the social order.

To make matters worse, society-based, emotionless Shani sees family-based, empathetic Chandrama as a shatru-graha * enemy.

Therefore Shani's once-every-29.3-years Sade Saati via Simha rashi can be miserable."No rest for the weary" is often the emotional result of much social conformity pressure whilst one feels deprived of even minimal emotional support.

Emotional turmoil sustains for 2.3 years. Most acute emotional deprivation in areas related to the environment of Chandra's occupied bhava.

Agents of emotional turbulence and physical exhaustion are often Shani-folk such as bureaucrats, regulators, judges, underclass, commoners, as well as institutions, economic systems, and Fear Itself.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda in 1904 (Mukunda's age 11) experienced the fleshdeath of his mother during his first Sade Sati in Simha and a coinciding bhukti of Chandra

  • On Golden Pond 1937- drama-commerce Jane Fonda on 14-Apr-1950 (Jane's age 12) she experienced the suicide of her mother Frances Ford Seymour * during first Sade Sati via Simha ++ Zukra-Rahu bhukti Zukra-yuti-Rahu-4


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani Samchara Kanya


Shani transits contact Chandra-Kanya * comforted by rhythmic remedial service

Shani rules Makara 5th-from-Chandra and Shani rules Kumbha 6th-from-Chandra

Analytical, discriminating Professor Budha who is the ruler of Kanya-Chandra sees systematic, regulatory, economic Shani as a samagraha * neutral.

However, society-based, emotionless Shani sees family-based, empathetic Chandrama as a shatru-graha * enemy.

Therefore Shani's once-every-29.3-years Sade Saati via Chandra-Kanya can be very stressful emotionally. Still, the Sade Sati via Kanya is much less demanding than the Sade Sati via Simha).

Emotional turmoil sustains for 2.3 years. Most acute emotional deprivation is felt in Kanya's special affinity for ministries of service and problem-analysis, where the workload may feel very heavy. Also pressure (Shani) in areas related to the environment of Chandra's occupied bhava.

Agents of emotional turbulence and physical exhaustion 6th-from-Chandra are often Shani-folk such as bureaucrats, regulators, judges, underclass, commoners, as well as institutions, economic systems, and Fear Itself.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani samchara Thula

Chandra-Thula * comforted by rhythmic negotiation of agreements

Shani rules Makara 4th-from-Chandra and Shani rules Kumbha 5th-from-Chandra

Shani - yogakaraka graha counted from the Chandra-Thula lagna

Key triangulation relationships

  • Zukra who rules Thula is adversarial * shatrugraha * toward Chandra
  • Zukra who rules Thula is friendly * mitragraha toward Shani.

Thula is the uttama-amza for Professor Shani.

Zukra the negotiating, equality-seeking, sexual-partnership ruler of Thula is adversarial * shatrugraha * toward nurturing, parenting Chandra.

Beauty-loving Zukra is friendly * mitragraha toward architectural, systematic Shani.

Sade-sati in Thula is often favorable for projects which benefit from sustained hard work, respect for rules of order, and tolerance for negotiating.

While visiting the Thula region, samchara Professor Shani obtains His uttamsha because He rules from this baseline two positive bhava: bandhusthana which provides security, protection, and foundational schooling; along with vidyasthana which provides intelligence, scholarship, and entitlements bequeathed via educational credentials. Therefore the outcome of Sade-sati in Thula is often in retrospect seen to have been well worth the effort.

Nevertheless, it is genuine effort sustained over the period of 7.5 years, with 2.3 years of relentless emotional pressure and work-driven loneliness at its core.

If other graha are yuti-Chandra, complications of Shani's constraining, limiting effects upon that other graha must be factored into the prediction.

The Sade Sati for Chandra-Thula is often focused upon matters of social justice and equity both in the great social order and within the family unit. Mother or mother-and-father as a parental unit, may find themselves marginalized by the love lives of their adult children. It may be difficult for parents to step back from the caretaking role and allow their children to form equity relationships.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani samchara Vrischika

Chandra-Vrizchika * nichha * comforted by rhythmic penetration of mystery

Shani rules Makara 3rd-from-Chandra and Shani rules Kumbha 4th-from-Chandra

Key triangulation relationships

  • Mangala who rules Vrizchika is friendly * mitrugraha * toward Chandra
  • Mangala who rules Vrizchika is neutral * samagraha toward Shani.

Due to nichha status of Chandra, the Sade Saati experience can be exceptionally challenging emotionally.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.


  • During the 2016 USA presidential election campaign, during his Sade Sati in Vrischika-5 (politics) POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Donald Trump mounted a challenge toward obtaining the elite governance office (Shani) of POTUS-45. Mr. Trump would have experienced intense emotional pressure via his Chandra in classroom-5 politics, entertainment, games. Initially the campaign might have been a fun game. But complications of Chandra-yuti-Ketu along with the notorious nichha-Chandra memory of past slights (real or imagined) evoked an instant need for vengeance (nichha Chandra), while the laws (Shani) governing socially acceptable behavior would have ppushed back upon the emotional instincts to entertain, gamble, and speculate (Chandra-5). One can feel oppressed and repressed during a Sade Sati. Furthermore, Ketu-5 suffers a blunted intelligence, confusing the expression of political genius that may be implicit in Chandra-5 and causing the presentation to gather a negative (Shani) emotional charge. Naturally, a negative campaign based on blaming and toxic emotions could be expected.

Shani samchara Dhanushya

Chandra-Dhanuzya * comforted by rhythmic catechesis of belief

Shani rules Makara 2nd-from-Chandra and Shani rules Kumbha 3rd-from-Chandra


Frozen faith. Frozen philosophy. Seizure and halt of the customary comforting rhythms of scriptural studies, theoretical discourse, and global humanism. The grounding influence of Daily Wisdom seems to dry and fly. Scarcity of higher knowledge, restrictions on travel and learning. Rigid, unyielding resistance to the flow of dharma.

Sade-sati in any rashi is likely to produce emotional scarcity. One may feel a significant insufficiency of sympathy, empathy, sensitivity, caretaking, parenting, sheltering, nourishment, roots, anchoring, belongingness, security.

Unique to Shani's journey via Dhanuzya, expect increasingly rigid, inflexible, law-imposing behaviors of Dhanuzya-folk such as preachers, professors, ideologues, indoctrinators, catechists, philosophers, theorists, those who operate the architectonic models, popes, father-figures, agents of the patriarchy, prognosticators, proselytes, and many pompous paternalistic priests. Shani transiting via Dhanuzya the Archer applies pressure upon all those concerned with archetypes, the archons, professions of faith and paradigms of belief.

Shani rules Makara 2nd-from-Chandra and Shani rules Kumbha 3rd-from-Chandra. (Mulatrikona generally gives stronger results).

Therefore during His contact with Chandra-Dhanuzya, the lawful but unsympathetic Shani is likely to emphasize emotionally motivated accumulation and acquisition of valuable treasuries (2) along with the emotional conversations, conferences, and commerce (3) which also facilitates the collection of the treasures of wealth-and-knowledge, because bhava-3 is 2nd-from-2nd. There may be much social pressure to save, conserve, and do business when Shani's fear-signal afflicts the normally placid Moon.

When Shani is viewing Chandra, from Shani's own eye, He is typically seeing Chandra as an enemy. However, Professor Shani considers Dhanuzya, the rashi that is supervised by Shani's sama -graha Brihaspati, to be neutral territory.

Shani's transit via Dhanuzya, which is from Shani's perspective a neutral rashi, is typically less aggrieved than sade-sati occurring in hostile rashi.

Essentially, Shani wants a social order that has strict rules with no exceptions. Chandra, who signifies family-first loyalty and localized ethnic cultures, poses a threat to Shani's systematic social governance. Therefore when Professor Shani is required to teach in a classroom which contains Professor Chandra -- even when the rashi is friendly -- regardless of the bhava, unsympathetic un-empathetic, lawful Shani tries to impose strictly legalistic, materialistic, bureaucratic, institutional rules upon the normally charitable, expansive, inclusive, diversity-embracing realm of Chandra-Dhanuzya * comforted by rhythmic catechesis of belief.

When Chandra occupies Dhanuzya, one is often a highly intuitive, responsive, and reactive preacher, professor, indoctrinator, or believer. Chandra-Dhanuzya has sensitive feelings particularly about topics such as paradigms of belief, the catechism of faith, exegesis of scripture, and the tenets of humanistic philosophies.

Religious study and philosophical discourse behavior usually and reliably can offer a rhythm of comforting routine for Chandra-Dhanuzya. Family-like bonds are often formed between members of the sangha (sangiti, the reciters), the community of believers and world-travellers. Shani will keep pressuring, cooling, darkening, drying, stiffening, and creating scarcity. But in Dhanushya-rashi, He is imposing His materialistic, scientifically-positivistic stricture upon a spiritualized, open-minded, generous and inclusive environment that does not naturally accept His insistence on rule-driven indoctrination and tests of faith. Therefore His conformist, legalistic pressures may seem somewhat draconian (Shani-Draco) toward the feelings of persons who may subscribe to diverse beliefs and hail from global backgrounds, during a Sade-Sati afflicting Chandra-Dhanuzya. Shani only understand material level of reality and therefore His pressures are concerned mainly with money, time, and institutional order.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani samchara Makara

Chandra-Makara shani rules Chandra-Makara, and Shani rules Kumbha rashi of Chandra.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani samchara Kumbha


Chandra-Kumbha * comforted by rhythmic pulsing network linkage

Shani rules Makara 12th-from-Chandra, and Shani rules Chandra-Kumbha


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.

Shani samchara Meena


Chandra-Meena * comforted by rhythmic ancestral guidance

Shani rules Makara 11th-from-Chandra, and Shani rules Kumbha 12th-from-Chandra

Brihaspati ruler of Meena is friendly * mitrugraha * toward Chandra and Brihaspati is neutral * samagraha toward Shani.

The main effects of a Sade Sati are rendered via the significations of the bhava.

However Meena rashi characteristics of fresh-water lakes and water-gazing for divinatory purposes, dreams and omen-reading, imagination, psychic sensitivity, spiritual guidance from ancestors, music and muses, symbolic (rather than linear) communication by gestalt (rather than by analysis), and other effects of the expansion (Guru) of the nurturing and protective abilities and needs (Chandra) can all be impacted by the seizing, freezing, block-of-stone, resisting-change, grieving, duty-bound, rigid effects of cold, dry, unsympathetic Shani.

Despite Chandra-Meena's perpetual compassion toward those who suffer, one may feel overwhelmed by the apparent structural inevitability of suffering due to the rigid and fearful behaviors of the miserable ones. Isolation and and emotional imprisonment in an astral dreamworld of the ancestors, or in a land that time forgot, or within one's own imagination, are typical sade-sati-in-Meena realities. One's intuitive ability to apprehend the meaning of symbols, a singular gift of Chandra-Meena, is often unrecognized or even forbidden during Sade-Sati as social duties within a rigid and antiquated system bear heavy weight.


Mother

Shani provides lawful completion of obligations, and Chandra is matrikaraka. If the mother is elderly or otherwise ready to return to the light, then Sade Sati can be a common window of opportunity for the Mother to leave her fleshbody.


As with any relationship between Shani and Chandra, an attitude of utter neutrality and calm acceptance will be most helpful during this trying time.
