Shani Sade Sati
Shani Sade Sati or simply Sade Sati is a period in the life of an individual, spanning approximately seven and a half years, which is dubiously associated with difficulties and challenges. Sade Sati starts with the entry of planet Saturn or Shani in the zodiac sign immediately before the janma rasi (zodiac sign of moon as per native's birth chart). The period ends with the exit of Shani from the zodiac sign immediately following the zodiac of moon. Shani takes two and a half years to transit each zodiac and therefore takes a total of seven and a half years to exit the third zodiac.
