Saturn transits in one rashi for a longer time than any other planet. It stays for two and half years in one Rashi. When Saturn Transits in twelfths house of one’s rashi, it is the arrival time of Saturn’s saadesaati which ends when Saturn’s transits in third house from the rashi. This means, Saturn’s transit in last and next to rashi is called Sadesati. Saturn signifies poverty and weakness. That is the reason, the native suffer for a longer time in life in the hands of Saturn.
Apart from Shani Sadesati, a period of two and half years which is called Shani adhaiya or Laghu Panauti or Lagun Kalyani, when Saturn transits in fourth and eight house from birth rashi, the native comes in the influence of Shani dhaiya. To know the onset of Shani dhaiya, add 90 degrees and three rashi or 210 degrees Jeevenrashi in the Longitude of Natal Moon. The sum total of this addition is the beginning time of Saturn dhaiya. When Saturn completes the sum total of Moon longitude and 120 degrees or 240 degrees the native’s dhaiya comes to an end.
