SATURN MAHADASHA REMEDIES
Saturn or Shainaishara is a very important planet in Vedic Astrology. Where it is placed in your Vedic Astrology Horoscope is where your Karma has created a boundary of discipline, lessons, focus, determination, restrictions and delays. The placement of Saturn in any house will signify these karmic forces from past lives at work in your current incarnation and life on this earth plane or ‘bhu loka’. It is an extremely important and significant planet in your birth chart because it represents karma on a very deep level. Saturn is amongst the most feared planets in Jyotish because of its effect on every aspect of your life, physical, emotional and material. However, Saturn does not punish you, it is your own actions from past lives as Sanchita Karma that Saturn portrays and manifests in your life as lessons and retribution. Lord Shani is not evil but the energy that takes you towards your liberation through self realization and experiences. This is shown by its Gochara transits and its operating periods as Saturn Mahadasha Saturn, Antardasha and Saturn Bhukti. Those who understand the spirituality and deeper meaning of Lord Shaniaschara’s reasons for creating the particular events and circumstances in your life with an open and aware mind will understand the beauty of this beautiful and holy planet. Saturn is considered in ‘dig bala’ or directional strength in the 7th house indicating the West. Its Digbala deity is Lord Varuna. Saturn gives auspicious results when placed in the houses 3, 6, 10 and 11 which are the Upachaya Houses. It is considered tough in other houses especially the Lagna, 8th and 12th. Saturn is the bhava karaka or house significator of the three houses that indicate past life sins. The houses six,eight and twelve.

The following are the most effective remedies in reducing the negative effects of Saturn Transits and Dashas. The most important point to remember is that Lord Shani wants you to become dharmic – Honest, Kind, Patient, Disciplined, Vegetarian, Calm and Pure. Until you do not imbibe these qualities in your consciousness, the karmic cycle of Saturn and re-birth will continue in the form of lessons and suffering. If you do try to become a loving, truthful and pure person, Saturn will relent and be on your side.
