What is Sade Sati?
Sade Sati, the literal translation of it being seven and a half. So on a direct look, it means a period that lasts for seven and a half years. In this long period of seven and a half years, Saturn transits over three zodiac signs.
In each sign, Saturn remains for 2.5 years, altogether seven and a half years. Saturn passes over the twelfth, then first, and lastly the second moon house. The effect that Sade Sati brings on different signs varies very much in severity.
How does Sade Sati influence your life?
The period when Saturn transits the Moon is often regarded as a challenging one, capable of depleting one’s energies, slowing down one’s pace of life, causing a more gloomy or negative outlook on life, and causing a significant drop in one’s normal emotional buoyancy. Sade Sati’s main effect is to make a person impassioned, to think of losses, to dither in nature, to overthink about things, and to think of unpleasant ideas all the time.
This is Saturn’s worst connotation. However, once you are aware that you are under Sade Sati, you must manage your nervousness and maintain your confidence. Maintain your composure and patience. If you can’t, you’ve given in to it.
Not only is Saturn’s transit of one’s Moon sign unlucky, but even the presence of Saturn transiting neighboring signs can bring bad circumstances into one’s life. Any sign takes two and a half years for Saturn to transit. The effects are sluggish and ponderous.
If the Moon’s twelfth, first, or second house is in your natal horoscope, Saturn will have an impact on your life. Sade Sati’s 7.5-year transition is divided into three 2.5-year periods. An individual who has Saturn’s influence in their lives must go through these three phases, the second of which is said to be the most difficult. By challenging, we mean a period during which you will be put through tests and trials to assess your character and see if you are consistent. It’s life’s way of putting challenges your way and observing your strength.
The different stages and their effects
Sade Sati occurs in three stages:
- One sign before your Moon sign, in your sign, and the sign after your Moon sign. The first stage involves being cut off from one’s support system due to disagreements, job loss, illness, or accidents. It affects the health of your close relatives and has family troubles.
- The second stage is the most significant one. It leads to true alteration in your thinking, profession, and relationship, making it necessary for everyone. The second stage will have a myriad of effects on your health, family, job, relationships, and money matters.
- Saturn transits the Moon’s 2nd house in the third cycle, causing loss of riches, financial stress, mental stress, increased expenditure, and ill-health. This stage is crucial since it affects the native’s children and spouse, and it can even lead to divorce in some situations.
