Do you dread Saturn, the malefic planet in astrology that brings a host of negative effects in a native’s life? Remedies for Saturn can help you get rid of the planets’ negative impacts and bring about positive changes in your life.
The planet Saturn, commonly known as Shani in Vedic astrology, has a very strong effect on humans and kundalis.

Saturn is considered cruel and troublesome, yet in reality it is benevolent and frees us from the bonds of life and death. It is the planet of justice and karma.
Shani has the longest Mahadasha period spanning 19 years. Being the slowest moving planet in space, Saturn transits over one planet for two-and-a-half years and is the Lord of the 10th and 11th houses in the astrological chart. These are the houses of karma and justice. Saturn justifies our karmas.
Saturn controls life, death, wealth, home, children and illnesses related to intestines etc. Saturn also controls thefts, legal suits, and affects financial matters. A favourable Saturn can do wonders, but can be very evil if inauspicious, in certain aspects.
According to Vedic astrology, Saturn is the planet of karmic retribution and teacher of cosmic truths. It does that through restrictions, obstructions, frustrations, unhappiness, disillusionments, setbacks and fears. These restrictions have a definite purpose. Saturn keeps an account of all the past deeds and releases this Karma unexpectedly, without warning.
On the positive side, Saturn stands for achievement, the fruits of hard work, responsibility, democracy, without which we would not get very far in life.
