Ashtam Shani – Transit of Saturn through the eighth house Part-II

 Continuation of the previous Blog about Saturn transits.

In the previous Blog we dealt with Sade Sati and Pancham Shani, or the transit of Saturn through the twelfth,first, and second houses as also the 5th house from Moon.

In this Blog we shall take a look at what happens when Saturn transits the 8th house from Moon. Saturn not only gives the results of his physical presence there but also of the houses where his three aspects fall.

Saturn’s transit through the eighth house from Moon causes losses and sorrow. One meets disappointments frequently. Infamy and fear from law hovers in the background. Separation from progeny takes place. Life partner’s health causes concern and possibility of bereavement exists. Bad company and gambling tendency causes many problems. These results are favorably modified if Saturn is in Capricorn or Aquarius in birth or Navansh charts.

The third aspect of Saturn falls on the 10th house and separates a person from his profession and status. In other words, one is liable to lose his job and status in society. Professional obstacles increase during this two and a half year period and one is constantly fighting a losing battle.

The seventh house aspect of Saturn falls on the 2nd house of wealth and causes steady erosion of savings. Bank balance gets depleted and credit cards are maxed. Second house is also the house of domestic happiness and it gets affected negatively. The second house is the eighth from seventh and shows the longevity of the spouse. Saturn’s aspect here causes health issues to the life partner.

Saturn’s 10th house aspect falls on the 5th house of children and speculation and causes problems connected to both. One’s progeny may experience ill health and require expensive health care. If the health of children remains intact, there may be some other children related problems that cause anxiety to the individual. This becomes the worst time to invest for future gains. The fifth houses also rules over romance and Saturn’s aspect can cause a relationship to fold over.

Remedies for Saturn transits

In addition to the measures given in earlier Blogs, there are a few more things that a person can do. Here they are.

Mantra: Chant Maha Mritunjaya Mantra given below.

ॐ हौं जूं सः ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः
ॐ त्रयम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम उर्वारुक मिव बन्धनान मृत्योरमुक्षीय  मामृतात
स्वः भुवः भूः सः जूम हौं ॐ

Also chant Shani Mantra which is given below 23000 times in forty days.

ॐ प्रां प्रीं प्रौं सः शनैश्चराय नमः

Ring: Wear a ring made from the bottom of a boat, which is in use, or made from the horseshoe of a black horse (Front right foot)

Vrat / (Fast): Observe fast on Saturday. Worship Shani Dev with Kavach, Stotra and Mantra. Consume only milk, yogurt and fruit juice. Visit a Shani temple in the evening. Eat unsalted Khichri made with boiled Urad Dal and rice.

Wrap a cotton thread seven times round a Peepal tree (The holy fig tree) on a Saturday evening. Keep chanting the Shani mantra while doing so. Make a lamp from kneaded flour, add some mustard oil to it and light it at the base of the tree. Ask forgiveness for all misdeeds done knowingly or unknowingly in the past.

Measure a thread equal to nineteen times the length of your hand (elbow to finger tips) and wear it as a garland.
