Sade Sati, What It Is And How Much Damage Can It Do?

Continuation of the last post....
For people born with Moon in Virgo, Saturn will pass through the Lunar ascendant. His third house aspect will fall on the third house of siblings, cousins and friends. The seventh house aspect will influence the house of sexual relationships and the tenth house aspect will weaken the house of profession and social status. Lets look at the the houses falling eighth from these houses. The eighth from third house is the tenth house. The eighth from the seventh is the second house of wealth and the eighth from the tenth house is the fifth house of children and speculation. All theses houses will suffer erosion, depending upon the strength of Saturn in these houses.

For people born with Moon in Leo, Saturn transits the second house. His third house aspect falls on the fourth house, The seventh aspects weakens the eighth house while his tenth house aspect affects the 11th house. The houses falling eighth from these are the eleventh, the third and the sixth. Results of all these houses will be adverse.

Above is a theoretical assessment of Saturn's passage through the 12th, the first and the second house from Moon. The actual results will be different, and will depend upon a few more factors like Nakshatra, Ashtakvarga and Vedha. We shall discuss each one of these in the coming paragraphs.


We know that the zodiac is divided into twelve signs. In Vedic astrology, there is a further sub division. The zodiac is divided into twenty seven segments and each one is called a Nakshatra. It is thus an arc of thirteen degree and twenty minutes. Every sign will therefore have some Nakshatra falling in it. Each Nakshatra has a ruling planet and this alters the results of planetary transits taking place in it. Let us understand it through an example. Saturn is now passing through Virgo, a sign which spans three Nakshatra called Uttara Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Uttara Phalguni is ruled by Sun, Hasta by Moon and Chitra by Mars. All these planets are enemy of Saturn. His results will be therefore adverse while he transits Virgo. Nakshatra is a very important concept and must be always kept in mind when making any judgment in Vedic astrology.


Ashtak Varga refers to the strength of a planet and is in reality the measure of support it gets from other planets placed in various houses in a horoscope. The lowest figure a planet can get is a zero and the highest, eight. Most planets give moderately good results if they have three to four Ashtak Varga points. For Saturn a figure below four gives unfavorable results.
