Shani impact on Profession:

Since Shani or Saturn is associated with hard work and discipline, the natives work in industries involving heavy physical work like farming, labor, road construction, civil engineering, and ship building. Also, the natives under the influence of Shani have a heightened sense of justice as well as an analytical mind, making them perfect to work as lawyers, judges, Human resource professionals, IT professionals, analysts and researchers. Also, due to their inclination towards spirituality, the natives can become healers, spiritual gurus, astrologers and psychics.

Shani impact on Health:

Shani is also known as Aayushkarak, i.e. giving longevity due to the discipline it makes the natives follow. However, those with a negative effect of Shani, suffer a lot due to the same. They are typically afflicted by diseases of the bones like arthritis, joint pains, paralysis and fractures. A heightened negative effect may also lead to shortening of life for the native.


Since it is one of the most feared planets in Vedic astrology, there are many remedies prescribed to counter the ill effects of Shani, especially during the Saadhe Saati and Dhaiya periods. Some of the common remedies are

Offering sesame oil on Saturdays or Shanivaar
Recite any of the Shani Mantras 23000 times. The same can be recited 108 times every Saturday, starting from Shukla Paksha Saturday
Light one lamp with mustard oil near a Pipal tree, every Saturday. Take care not to buy these items on a Saturday.
Recite the Hanuman Chalisa
Perform a Havan and conclude with the Mahadasha Havan
Perform Rudrabhishek to counter the effect of Mahadasha
