A person might or might not remember the favourable planets but he sure bows before the malefic ones. Saturn can bring about reversals in life. But if along with Sadhana of Saturn, Sadhana of his father, the Sun, is accomplished then one can completely change one's life for the better. The best way is to destroy problems from their roots. One such very method is the following Sun-Saturn Sadhana.
The effect of planets on human life cannot be negated. The planets keep moving around the sun and keep entering different zodiac signs thus forming different combinations which have different effects. Sometimes one is favoured by good luck and at other times one has to face obstacles and problems. All this is due to the effect of the planets and the stars above.
There are nine astrological planets namely Moon, Sun , Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu in the solar system, and all these rule over different parts of the human body. The Sun rules over the stomach, Moon over the chest, Mars over the head, Mercury over shoulders and neck, Jupiter over the liver and urinary organs, Venus over the face, Saturn over thighs, Rahu over the feet and Ketu over the soles.
Among these planets Sun and Saturn are main. Sun is said to be the most powerful among all planets. It is a masculine planet and it signifies physical and mental health, respect and fame, courage, anger and bravery. Sun represents the personality of a person.
Similarly the planet Saturn has a dull complexion and travels slowly. It represents the wind constitution. It represents physical power, Yog, prosperity, mental inclination, deceit, lies, cruelty etc.
The important thing to note is that in one’s life the effect of Sun and Saturn is most marked. Where as Sun bestows radiance, Saturn instils deep thought in a person.
Saturn is the son of Sun and the brother of Yama. This is why accidents and untimely death are studied from Saturn.
If you take your horoscope to an astrologer then the first thing he would study is the position of Saturn in the horoscope. The Mahadasa of Saturn is of 19 years. According to the Vimshotari Dasa system the total Mahadasa period of all planets taken together is 120 years. The Mahadasa of Sun is of 6 years, Moon 10 years, Mars 7 years, Rahu 18 years, Jupiter 16 years, Saturn 19 years, Mercury 17 years, Ketu 7 years and Venus 20 years. In the Mahadasa of each planet there are sub periods or Antar Dasas of all planets.
To make the Saturn strong and favourable in the horoscope there are many Sadhanas and rituals. But one should not forget that Saturn is the son of Sun. And the Sun is a very radiant planet. Hence if Sun and Saturn Sadhanas are done together then quicker and better results are obtained. The fact is that Sun is the only planet that can neutralise thc negative effects of the planet Saturn.
Saturn Dasa in human life
The Dasa of Saturn does not mean only the Mahadasa, rather it also signifies the Antar Dasas in the Mahadasas of other planets.
Humans are very much affected by the planets. Among all the planets Saturn is very powerful. A person having a strong and favourable Saturn in the horoscope can accomplish tough mental tasks. Such a person can be a successful writer, musician, astrologer, politician, Tantra expert, actor, policeman and administrator. He can be a very successful industrialist and might manufacture chemicals or explosives.
The Dasa or the period of Saturn can be divided into four phases.
In the first phase there is an increase in spendings, quarrels in family life, differences with parents, loss of faith and bad relations with relatives.
In this phase the health remains good, the business is good and there are great profits. But the spendings are even greater. The person has many friends and one establishes good relations with administrative officers. There are earnings through illegal means too.
In this phase the person becomes extravagant. He wastes money on useless activities. He could take to drinking. He has quarrels with family members. There is constant fighting among the family members. He spends a lot for his friends. He has love affairs in which he spends time and money and writes love letters. He spends less time in business. Goals are not attained on time. His food habits become irregular. There are tensions with higher officials. There could be transfers in job. One is not able to please the seniors even though one works hard. There are frustrations in job and the hope of promotion is left unfulfilled. One has to face problems in studies. Even after working very hard one is not able to get satisfactory result.
In this phase one has to undergo financial problems. Tension in family life increases. There are fights and quarrels, police cases, court cases and huge medical bills. There are serious differences with brothers. Family might break up. Love affairs fail and there are problems due to them. There are tensions, fights, violence and serious trouble in life.
One might even start drinking, gambling. One loses all one’s wealth. One could even land up in prison. There is loss of face in the society and at home. There is ill fame.
For those in government jobs too, there are problems. Seniors might punish one without reason. One could even get suspended. If one is a contractor one faces lots of problems. One spends more than one earns. There is difference of opinion with the spouse. Either married partner could leave home. Paucity of money is a constant source of worry. But one can get money on debt very easily.
This phase has two parts.
First part: One becomes separated from the family due to which one has to face lots of problems and pain. One has to run from pillar to post to get things done. Relations with administrative officers worsen. Sources of earning are reduced. There are losses in business and one loses all savings. One might lose one’s job. Students have to face failures in study and examinations. One gets easily irritated. The married life remains unhappy. Health deteriorates. Whatever one earns one spends. There is loss of respect in the society.
One is not able to succeed in anything. The mind remains disturbed. There is no harmony among the thoughts and actions. One’s mind keeps wavering. One is not able to concentrate in a single task. One starts many things together and hence fails. One can even become bankrupt.
Due to bad financial condition one has to take to wrong means of earning. One gets no support from the family and one always feels lonely and neglected. Friends break all links with the person. One even starts to think of suicide. Other than this there appears no way out of one’s problems. One easily loses one’s temper.
But in spite of so many problems the person keeps smiling. He might even get married. The married life is happy but the financial position remains bad.
Second part: If Saturn is malefic it generates the thought of committing suicide. But if it is benefic it can make even a king out of a pauper. In the last phase Saturn either destroys the person or makes him highly successful.
There are chances of accidents and even death. Some body part might get seriously hurt.
If Jupiter is benefic in this period then the person enjoys comforts, pleasures, wealth and vehicles. He wins elections and even gets government job or promotion in job. There occurs a complete change in his life. He earns laurels by his success and there is lot of travelling. In the Dasa of Saturn the malefic effect of the planet surely influences the life of a person even if Saturn is benefic in the horoscope. This malefic effect is like poisoning the joys of life and it makes life disturbed.
To remove this bad effect the ancient Rishis devised several Sadhanas through which the negative influence of Saturn could be neutralised. Also through these very Sadhanas Saturn could be made favourable. When these Sadhanas are tried the person gets protected from the negative effect of Saturn. It then becomes benefic for the individual and helps him attain to success and progress in life.
As I said earlier a Sadhak should try Sadhana of Sun before he tries Saturn Sadhana in order to make Saturn fully benefic. The Sadhana of Sun is accomplished in the morning while that of Saturn is done at night.
This is a 11 day Sadhana. First the Sadhana of Sun is being revealed followed by the Sadhana of Saturn.
