What is Saadhe Saati ?

Posted on December 30, 2012 at 3:45 AM


 It is seen among astrologer that Saturn's transit is considered bad except in 3,6 & 11 houses from Moon. The concept of Saadhe Saati is invariably taken as evil influence for all lagnas and rashis.



When Saturn transit, 12th, 1st& 2nd house from one's natal Moon, it is called Saadhe Saati. As Saturn takes 2.1/2 years  in one's house, it takes 7.1/2 years in total in these 3houses. The effect of Saadhe Saati and Dhaiya on individual is good or bad depends on the placement of other planets in the birth chart. In my experience, I have  found that Shri H. N.Katwe, a very original astrologer of Maharastra had a theory, which gives more accurate results compared to the results of standard “ Saadhe Saati” based on entry of Saturn in transit into the sign before the natal Moon sign and its exit for the sign next to natal Moon. According to Shri H. N. Katwe (a Maharastrian Astrologer) to  calculate the Saadhe Saati, first note the natal Moon's degree, then substract 45 degreesfrom Moon's degree and then add 45 degrees to the natal Moon's degree, so thisOrb will be beginning and ending points of the Saadhe Saati in one's horoscope i.e. Saadhe Saati begins when Saturn is 45 degrees behind Moon and ends when it crosses 45 degrees beyond Moon.

 We should also judge the houses in which the Saadhe Saati is taking place. Planets and naksahatras which theSaadhe Saati influences should also be considered. Dending upon that good and bad results can be analysed.

Dhaiyyas is a period of 2.1/2 years which Saturn takes to transit through a sign. When Saturn transits through asign 4th from the the natal Moon, it is called “ Ardha – Ashtam”andwhen it transits through the sign 8th from the natal Moon, it iscalled “ Ashtam Shani”


  • Signification of Lordship of Moon, Saturn and houses (where the Saadhe Saati is taking place)activates during Saadhe Saati.
  • When the transitof other planets (preferably of major planets) are favourable along with dasha,“Saadhe Saati” cannot be adverse inspite of weak transit of saturn.
  • Ill effects ofSaadhe Saati are controlled if strong jupiter and Maha dasha lord in transitprotect the Moon by aspect or conjunction.
  • Ill effects arealso minimized if the Saturn is transiting over its exaltation sign, own signor friend's house.
