Effect of Sade Sati
Saturn Sade Sati or Shani Sade Sati is a dreaded term. It tends to brings disappointments, hurdles, disputes and disharmony in one’s life but this doesn’t hold true for everyone as it depends on the native’s birth chart. At the same time, even if it does create some obstacles, it doesn’t mean it won’t give you any success.

Three cycles of Sade Sati
There are three cycles of Sade Sati. The first cycle is known to affect close relatives more than the native. The first cycle takes place when Saturn transits the 12th house from moon for 2.5 years. The effect of this can be on the native’s finances and it can cause debt.
In the second cycle, Saturn can impact the domestic sphere of the native and can create health and financial troubles, loss of friends,loss of self-confidence etc. Second cycle is when Saturn transits first house from moon for 2.5 years. However, what needs to be taken in consideration is the fact that these results will only occur if the Saturn is acting as a pure malefic in the native’s horoscope. If it is not a pure malefic, then the native will get mixed results.
The third cycle can impact the health, children, cause mental and physical distress, loss of wealth, disputes with close ones and sufferings.This cycle takes place when Saturn transits in the second house from Moon.
