When Does sadhe-saati actually begin?

Saturn in astrology represents a hard taskmaster and the Moon mind, manas. Saturn’s transit around one’s Moon must create stresses and strains, a feeling of agony and joy depression and ecstasy. There are certain other position from the natal Moon where too Saturn creates similar stresses. For example, when Saturn in transit is in the 4” house form one’s Moon and in the 8”. But since we are discussing Sadhe-saati it is necessary to keep overselves confined to Sadhe-saati only.

The most pertinent question that must be answered is when should Sadhe-saati be said to have begun and when should it be said that it has reached its terminal point. Here the observation of a Maharashtrian astrologer, the late Shri Katwe, are worth keeping in mind. Somewhere Shri Katwe has written that when Saturn is within forty-five degree from one’s Moon, Sadhe-saati should be said to have genion and when Saturn has crossed 45° after leaving the Moon it should be said to have ended. For example, the degree of the Moon of Mrs. Indira Gandhi is five in Makara. In this case her Sadhe-saati should be said to have begun when Saturn reached 200 in Vrischika and when Saturn reached 200 in Kumbha it should be said to have ended.

If the method of shri Katwe is followed, the three phases of Sadhe-saatl should further be divided thus:

  1. a)     When Saturn has traversed 300 from behind the Moon and is within 15° of the natal Moon it should be treated as the first phase of Sadhe-saati.
  2. b)     When transiting Saturn is within 150 of the natal Moon and when ha has reached 15° after transiting over the Moon the second phase should be said to have ended.
  3. c)     Inevitably it follows that when Saturn in transit Is more than 45° away from one’s Moon then only Sadhe-saati ends.
