Saturn’s Significance In Vedic Astrology

Saturn is the slowest planet of all. Many people consider it negative due to its influence on their lives. But, that is not the case in real sense. Shani is a strict master, a disciplinarian that bestows one with victory only after continuous effort, dedication, and passing the hurdles with confidence. Hence, it is also called as the planet of Karma or the Justice Lord.

Vedic Astrology also states that every human being faces small Panoti and Shani Sade Sati in their life. Those are the years when they may have to struggle and face extreme hardships. However; when Shani showers his blessings on people, they never have to experience tough times, and are successful in the most righteous way. Along with that, Shanidev bestows them with incredible gains and auspicious times. Saturn impacts various facets of one’s life along with their career. Thus, Shani can turn out to be miraculous if posited favourably in one’s horoscope, but can also be problematic if placed unfavourably.

What The Legends Say About Shani Dev

As per the traditional texts, Saturn is known to be the son of Suryadev and Chhaya. Shani was ill-treated and doomed by his wife and heavenly mother Parvati. However; once she realized her mistake, Parvatidevi gave a blessing to Shani that there will not occur any important event in a person’s life unless Shanidev blesses that deed. That occasion should either be blessed with a favourable transit or an aspect to a suitable house in one’s birth chart.

Ancient traditions also depict Shani as the elder brother of Yama (Lord of death), and hence, Shani may also play Yama’s part in ending an individual’s earthly life. He also signifies detachment due to being a greatly spiritual planet and the teachings it brings to a native.
