This week's nugget will answer some of your questions about Sade Sati, which I've seen around google, and some of the users researching this topic. I'd love to start explaining and take you through this journey of explaining the phases of Sade Sati, how it all starts, the different events and phases of Sade Sati, and finally, where you can find out if you're in Sade Sati. Please don't confuse this with Small Panoti, because they are also called Dhaiya when Saturn moves to your 4th and 8th house of your natal moon. It brings tough times as well, but not the same experience as Sade Sati.
What are the three phases of Sade Sati?
According to Wikipedia, It's rising, peak and setting. Let's see how the rising phase starts and how things progress using some of my experience and expertise in Vedic Astrology. Firstly I'd like to that you for taking the time to read this because most of today's audience recognize to either listen to a quick video, or audio yet they miss the pure fact of earning the teaching of Saturn, and putting in the effort to ripe results of their fruits. If you're reading this, then you have the patience to understand the importance of this topic, and I would like to thank you from the deepest of my heart for understanding why it's so important to learn about Sade Sati's three phases.
What happens when Sade Sati starts
When Saturn walks into a certain sign, he walks with gold, silver, copper, and iron leg into a house. Walking into a sign with the following flavor can drastically change the events of certain houses. Let's look a the following chart, and I'll add my assumption into the mix as well.
Golden Legs: Saturn in the 6th & 11th sign
Silver Legs: Saturn in the 2nd, 5th & 9th sign
Copper Legs: Saturn in the 3rd, 7th, and 10th sign
Iron Legs: Saturn in the 4th, 8th, and 12th sign
As soon as he enters Sade Sati. He's in the 12th sign. Meaning he's walked into the 12th house with Iron legs. Be ready to do the hard work, although the start of Sade Sati in a practical sense is the 45th degree from the moon. Does this make it relevant? In a way yes, and no. Let me give you a quick explanation of these theories and actual practical experience. I've seen 45th-degree theory more prominent than sign. This is quite interesting because books & other astrologers explain it a little differently than actual experience of events at the start of Sade Sati. Saturn's whole lesson is to bring pressure to the mind, through thoughts and events in our lives. So at the start, I'd recommend you to check your personal chart & experience it yourself. There are other ways to look into this information, but from a yogi's perspective, you have to choose the right way to see how Saturn is entering your sade sati sign. I'll try to answer all these questions in my next nugget, where I'll discuss each phase of Sade Sati.
As a quick reminder, these are my pure observations and not recommendations on Saturn's Sade Sati series. I've been observing Sade Sati events through my own lens of life, and do not recommend any remedies. So please do follow at your own risk. Thanks
