Is sadesati dreadful?
Is sadesati benefic or malefic?
The benefic or malefic effect depends on phases. Since sadesati means 7.1/2 years, it takes 7.1/2 years to complete three zodiac signs. Each rotation is treated as phases. For a clear picture if you are aries moon sign native, sadesati begins when saturn enters in pisces, means saturn is in 12th house from natal moon this is called phase one, this is also called rising phase. And next phase saturn in aries itself, this is called peak stage and finally in tarus called setting phase (3rd phase).
Effects of saturn according to phases?
Effects of phase 1 - rising phase.
Effects of phase 2 - Peak phase.
Effects of phase 3 - Setting phase.
The question arises who face difficult phase as per moon sign.
Here guys this is the important for every zodiac signs to understand which phase is going to be difficult.
For aries moon sign - 2nd phase is most dangerous. 1st phase is neutral and 3rd phase is good.
For Tarus moon sign - 1st phase is difficult and rest other are neutral.
For Gemini moon sign - 3rd phase is difficult and rest are neutral, but the effects depends on position of saturn.
For Cancer moon sign - 3rd phase is difficult and rest other are neutral.
For Leo moon sign - 2nd phase is difficult and rest other are neutral
For Virgo moon sign - 1st face is difficult, 2nd phase is neutral or difficult depends on position of saturn and ashtakvarga concept ( I will explain this below) and 3rd phase is benefic.
For Libra moon sign - 1st phase is neutral, 2nd phase is benefic and third phase is difficult.
For Scorpio moon sign - 1st phase is benefic, 2nd phase is difficult and 3rd phase is neutral.
For Saggitarus moon sign - 1st phase is difficult, 2nd phase is neutral and 3rd phase is benefic.
For Capricorn moon sign - 1st phase is neutral or other two faces are benefic and again depends on Ashtakvarga.
For Aquarius moon sign - 1st phase, 2nd phase is benefic and 3rd phase is neutral.
For Pisces moon sign - 1st phase is benefic, 2nd phase is neutral and 3rd phase is difficult.
Now again.. do you know some may recieve more benefits during this period, some may achieve their dreams during this period. It depends on ashtakvarga.. suppose in the ashtakvarga, Saturn having more than 3 benefic dots it means the process rises very high and becomes wealthly. Now again it depends on position and nature of planet. If saturn is sitting in good sign and ruling good house one may not face difficult in any phase. However, they undergo little struggles.
