ABOUT SHANI MAHADASHA
When Shani is bad, it controls life in all major aspects of materialism such as loss of prosperity, illness or bed ridden condition or even imprisonment. On the contrary, good Shani can boost trade in the field of metals like machines, furnace, cement, wood, oil and so on. A Dasha is a term used by Hindu religion. It is a time period, which defines the movement of the moon over the nakshatras (constellations of stars) from its unique positions in the natal horoscope. Dasha has a specific span of time, which a person has to go through. Based on astrology there are numerous types of Dashas.
A Shani’s Mahadasha is an epoch of moon’s advancement via nakshatra. The Shani Mahadasha is usually 19 years. It starts with a sub-period or Antar Dasha where we all get slowly transferred to a stage, which teaches us lessons of life. It is the material pleasures such as property, finance and wealth that is affected the most. When Shani turns malefic, the comfort starts to diminish.
