Since Saturn takes approximately two and half years to transit a sign, the transit through three signs takes about 7.5 years and is referred to as Sade Sati in Indian Astrology. This phase of 7.5 years repeats approximately every 30 years and thus, is experienced a maximum of about three times in a lifetime. Currently, those with Scorpio, Libra and Sagittarius Janma Rasi are experiencing the Shani Sade Sati. When saturn enters Sagittarius (Dhanu) on January 26th 2017, Libra Janma rashi born will be out of Sade Sati and Capricorn (Makara) born will begin Sade Sati Phase.

A negative image of fear and pain is often incorrectly associated with Shani Sade Sati by many of the unfaithful practitioners of Vedic Astrology. While it is true that this period is unsettling in human life, the spiritual uplift associated with this period can hardly be overemphasized. This is a period of tremendous learning and advancement.

Saturn is the guru who teaches us the realities of our earthly existence. Obstacles, delays, failures, frustrations, displacement, loneliness teach us to look beneath the glamor, reputation, achievement, wealth and social connections. Saturn walks us through these educating experiences and leads us to where we belong and what we deserve according to our action or Karma. The period of Sade Sati (also spelt sometimes as Sade Shati) is an educating experience advancing us to the next higher level of consciousness.
