Saturn often called the planet of karma is the most dreaded planet among the Navagraha (9 planets) of Vedic Astrology. Although everyone fears Saturn, it is a benevolent planet which rewards you based on your past and current lives. According to Vedic Astrology, Saturn is the slow-moving planet and spends 2.5 years in each zodiac sign. During its transit in a sign, it makes you undergo several turbulences for your betterment and maturity in life.
The impact of Saturn is high, when it transits 12th, 1st, and 2nd house (Sade Sati), 4th house (Artha Ashtama Sani), and 8th house (Ashtama Sani) from the Moon in your birth chart. The position of Saturn in these houses can result in malefic effects and may make you undergo many hardships in life, only to impart patience, maturity, discipline, and hard work.
The impact of Saturn is intense in these positions and can teach you tough lessons and help you lead a better life. The effects of Sade Sati is malefic, though not as malefic as Ashtama and Artha Ashtama Sani.
