What is Shani Dosha? Or When Does Sade Sati Occur?

Shani Dosha or Sade Sati is called malefic Saturn. It occurs when Saturn is weak or situated in any of these fundamental houses like 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th or 8th and 12th houses in Aries, Leo, Cancer or Scorpio sign or in a retrograde position in the birth horoscope. When Saturn is associated with Moon, Mars or Rahu, it can also form Shani Dosha. However, the influence of malicious Saturn can be reduced or eradicated with Shani Santi puja.

Planet Shani or Saturn is one of the most significant and influential planets in the science of astrology. Its location in one’s birth chart can affect his life if it is malefic. Do you know the Sun is the father of Shani and his elder brother is Yama (the God of death)? Saturn is considered a malefic planet and a planet of justice.


Shani affects a person adversely on occasions when it occupies a certain position in one’s horoscope. Sade Sati is for 7-1/2 years but these years are not always unfavourable and unlucky. It is basically depended on the ownership of Saturn in the house of birth sign. The Ashtama Shanaiswara which is formed when Shani is in the 8th house can influence one’s life for 2-1/2 years. He is considered the slowest moving planet, takes 30 years to complete one cycle. Mostly, Shani resides in one’s zodiac for 2 and half years but Saneeswaran for 7-1/2 years when it is on 12th, 1st and 2nd house. When Shani is placed in the 4th house, it is called Naatu Shani.
