Almost all the people fear for Satturn Planet.
And, their fear multiplies when the satturn is crossing SADE SATI PERIOD.
WHAT IS SADE SATI PERIOD?
The planet takes 30 years to come round the sun once. In these 30 years, it crosses every rasi once in two and a half years.
The 7.5 years period in which the Satturn travels (i) previous rasi to yours, (ii) your rasi, and (iii) next rasi to yours is called SADE SATI PERIOD.
Out of these 7.5 years, the middle 2.5 years, when the satturn travels in your rasi is considered as a PERIOD TO BE VERY CAREFUL.
But, the astrological fact is different.
When you are in SADE SATI PERIOD, that means Satturn is going to teach the realities of life.
Satturn is represented by Yama Dharma Raja himself. Crow is his vehicle.
See the beauty here: Crow is connected to Satturn. Satturn is connected to life (Soul taking). Our scriptures recommend us to offer food to crows every day and hence our ancestors will be pleased. Crows are connected to Satturn and yama who are responsible for having taken the lives of our ancestors. Hence we offer food to the crows.
Thus, offering food to crows satisfy Satturn and Yama dharma raja and hence our ancestors are also blessed by Satturn and yama.
How beautiful connection this is! Who said that our scriptures are just stories!
They are logical as we have seen above.
Satturn is not a dangerous planet. Of course, satturn determines our life time, but, he is a very important planet in one’s horoscope.
Because, satturn has been entrusted another assignment of educating the people in the realities of life.
How satturn does this?
By giving some problems.
Satturn gives us problems NOT TO DESTABILISE US, BUT, TO MAKE US MATURED.
How we respond to these problems determines our further life.
For example, if we do not learn lessons from the problems and remain egoistic, our life gets destabilized.
If we learn lessons from our problems given by Satturn, and take corrective steps, then, satturn stops giving problems to us.
What corrective steps satturn expects from us?
Here, Satturn expects the same what Krishna expects from us.
MATERIAL DETACHMENT AND SURRENDER TO KRISHNA.
Yes, if we detach our mind from material glares and lead our life like a machine in the hands of Lord, then, Satturn stops disturbing us.
Now, you would have understood that the main task of satturn is to develop material detachments.
That is why, he gives problems to us. He is watching whether we develop detachment and go closer to God, particularly, Krishna.
If we do that, we need not fear for Satturn.
If not, we have to face the problems.
Though satturn shows his impacts throughout our life, he will be personally teaching us during these 7.5 years of Sade Sati Period.
This is the period to chant more; worship Krishna more; develop more material detachments; And, develop more attachment to Krishna.
Just fece the problems like a spectator and keep on performing devotional practices. Do not develop attachments in pleasures.
IF WE DEVELOP OUR MIND LIKE A SANYASI AND LEAD OUR LIFE LIKE A MAACHINE, SATTURN WILL IN FACT HELP US BY GIVING MORE DEVOTION.
SATTURN WILL BE HAPPY IF WE ARE MORE KRISHNA CONSCIOUS. He will extend all facilities to us to practice devotion to Krishna.
NO NEED FOR ANY DOUBT IN IT.
IF YOU LEAD YOUR LIFE LIKE A TOOL OF KRISHNA, JUST FORGET ABOUT THIS SADE SATI SATTURN.
In my experience and assessment, Satturn is also one of the representative of Krishna because, like Krishna, satturn too expects material detachment from us.
All the best.
