What is Shani Maha Dasha
Saturn or Shani, according to Vedic Astrology, is the most powerful planet. It is one of the most potent planet. It is associated with discipline, hard work, karma, patience, ambition, longevity, and delay. On the other hand, it is the slowest moving planet, as a result of which it is dry, barren and cold. Saturn’s effects are experienced with greater intensity and for a more extended period than other planets. Shani Mahadasha and Saade Saati are some of these effects which impose extreme and unpredictable results. It could either bestow success or suffering to the native. Natives born under Venus signs enjoy good benefits from Saturn. Saturn or Shani Mahadasha runs for 19 years in a person’s life and brings plenty of opportunities during that period. Shani is the judge of all planets and does not tolerate injustice. During the entire period of Mahadasha, a person has to face plenty of challenges in every aspect of their life that is brought about by Shani. Those involved in unlawful, unjust, illicit and illegitimate activities will be punished harshly by Saturn. The Mahadasha phase is also an extremely hardworking phase of one’s life, yet the results tend to be very slow during this period. Shani is unbiased while bestowing the gifts as one only gets what one deserves. While undergoing the Mahadasha, one learns to face harsh realities, extreme labour and constant growth. Shani Mahadasha instils discipline in our life to help us sustain our responsibilities and makes us strong and efficient. During Shani Mahadasha, knowledge increases to a great extent, and so does strong belief in god. It makes us modest and grounded individuals. A favourable Mahadasha period would bring in happiness and fame.
