Sadhe-Satee is one of the hardest period in one’s life. Saturn is believed to be planet of sorrow & hardships. Saturn completes its rotation around the Sun in 30 years. Thus Saturn passes through each sign for a period of 2½ years.
When Saturn passes through the 12th rashi (sign) from the birth moon sign, the Sadhe-Satee begins. When Saturn passes through the 2nd sign from the birth sign, Sadhe-Satee comes to an end.
Depending on the power of the original horoscope, original Saturn, Jupiter & their placements in horoscope, the hardships & damages during the Sadhe-Satee vary.
Some of the results of Sadhe-Satee are frequent failures, loss of property, money, illness, trouble in the career, worry etc. It is advisable to wear a Stainless/Silver/Gold Ring of Neelmani (Blue Sapphire) in the middle finger of right hand during sadesati.
