The effects of SATURN & remedies to nullify them

Saturn, commonly known as 'Shani' is the slowest moving planet in space, but has quite strong effects on kundalis. It gives good as well as bad effects according to your job. Its presence is considered auspicious in 2nd, 7th, 3rd, 10th and 11th House, but inauspicious in 4th, 5th and 8th House. It controls life, death, wealth, home, children, results of legal suit, theft, illness related to intestines, etc. It can do wonders if it is favourable, but can be very evil if inauspicious.

In case of benefic Saturn, a person becomes a great scholar with a good command over language. Saturn is capable of turning gold into ashes, but when it is benevolent it gives immense profit. The people whom Saturn favours have high possibilities of engaging into the trade of machinery, furnace, leather, cement, wood, iron, oil, transport, astrology, rubber, etc.

However, if Saturn is malefic, the person has to face struggles in life. He may suffer from diseases related to stomach. There are high chances that he may also lose wealth or fall prey to imprisonment.
Some Effects of Saturn in Different Yogas And Combinations:-

  2. Drinking, gambling, telling lies or indulging into frivolities suppress the positive effects of Saturn.
  3. If Saturn is placed with Rahu and Ketu, it becomes insignificant.
  4. If Saturn comes under the aspect of Sun, it brings harm to Venus.
