Rahu Dasha and Saturn Bhukti

I was not surprised. After all this is the period that made me think about Astrology from a different perspective. Many people requested me to keep their questions confidential but kept repeatedly asking me for more information about their life '.....now that I am going through this bad Rahu Dasha and Sani Bhukti.....'.

What is Rahu Dasha?

The records show that I published this article on wordpress.com on November 2, 2012, the following paragraph is what I updated on March 31, 2013.

Out of the many articles I published on wordpress, the maximum response I got was from this one. Emails flooded my inbox every time I checked them out and the subject matter was mostly Rahu-Sani. I was not surprised. After all this is the period that made me think about Astrology from a different perspective. Many people requested me to keep their questions confidential but kept repeatedly asking me for more information about their life ‘…..now that I am going through this bad Rahu Dasha and Sani Bhukti…..’. People found my mobile number and kept contacting me using all the modern tools and techniques calling me from different numbers, they used SMS, Facebook, land line of my office, caught me outside of office for a free consultation. It is obvious that there was no way I could actually do justice to all of them. Of course those who reached out to me professionally got the answers they were looking for. Probably this all the work of fate. In modern times, money is an important aspect of life. For everything there is a price.

The tremendous response I got for this article proved once again the power of Vedic Astrology and also proves that RAHU Dasha and SANI bhukti is perhaps the most challenging period in a person’s life. I almost have concluded that it does not matter where these two planets where in the horoscope. In a few cases however nothing noteworthy happened. They according to me must have done great punya (merits of the past life). That usually happens for certain types of horoscope where Rahu and Saturn are both friendly to the person and is also occupying a good house and they are placed well between themselves. That is just about may be 5% of the entire population.

When I went through this period during 1990-92, I did not know what was coming up, even though I had commenced the study of Vedic Astrology from year 1988. I consoled myself by saying that “my Rahu is in the 7th house and the Saturn is the Ascendant lord”.

When we do a self study we try to become our own soothsayers, meaning we like to go smooth with our findings, consoling and soothing ourselves all the time. But as I went through the period, due to the difficulties, I lost several kgs, (I was a weightlifter then and physically very strong) because I did fasting on all Saturdays (though today I do not recommend fasting to my clients).

I looked weak and tensed all the time due to financial crisis. I remember that on every 8th, 17th and 26th of all the months, the local financiers who lent me the money used to come to my office reminding me it was payback time (perhaps payback debts carried forward from past lives), and I used to convince them and send them back with 1/10th of what was due along with a promise money will come soon. I pledged all the gold I had one after the other. Gold is something that both Saturn and Rahu hate. I never redeemed the pledged gold. Because I was kind to all the people in my life (except on rare occasions) these financiers did not abuse me. I was lucky with that. A customer of mine got me into trouble and I had issues with the police though later on they found out that I was innocent. My bank went to court and I was summoned.

During thosee days, I did a lot of charity beyond my means, I gave a banana to every beggar who entered my office in Pondy Bazar, a busy place in Chennai, South India. Soon about 200 beggars used to come to my office on all Saturdays. They knew that here was a man who gave only on Saturdays. The shopkeepers in front of my office and in the vicinity used to make fun of me, they even called me “The richest man on earth” because they knew I was going through a financial crisis and according to them such donations were the height of stupidity. I prayed to Lord Hanuman all the time and especially on 8th, 17th and 26th of every month. I fed the crows, birds, dogs and human beings living on the streets.

Then when Rahu Dasha – Sani bhukti got over, things became better. As I entered the 2nd part of RAHU-BUDHA a miracle happened on 26th July (the same date that used to trouble me a lot) and I got out of my debts. I have shared this information with my readers only to prove that remedies work but the results come only during appropriate times. One has to endure the manifestations of Karma – something that we created in our past life during the bad times of our life.

Now let us get on with RAHU Dasha and SANI Bhukti

This is the period that is ruled by Rahu and Saturn together. The duration of Rahu Dasha is 18 years. Like all other dashas this one is also further divided into 9 sub periods called Bhukti. The dasha of Rahu has more fate than freewill to offer. Usually things do not happen as you plan. It happens. Good or Bad depending on where Rahu is in your bhava chart. For example if Rahu is in 3rd, 6th, 10th or 11th, Rahu has more good to offer. If Rahu occupies the 8th or 12th house there is always unhappiness and stress around the person.

There are 9 sub periods or sub divisions within the 18 years long Rahu Dasha. The 1st sub period or 1st bhukti belongs to Rahu. I wish to inform you that the 1st sub period is always the same as the planet ruling the dasha. So in Rahu Dasha the 1st sub period is always ruled by Rahu. In Jupiter Dasha the 1st sub period is always ruled by Jupiter.

The 2nd Sub period in Rahu Dasha is always ruled by Jupiter. So after Rahu-Rahu comes Rahu-Guru.The 3rd Bhukti in Rahu is Satun (Sani) Bhukti.

What is so special about Rahu-Saturn period?

Do you recall the bad days of the hero Will Smith in the movie “In pursuit of happiness“? Forget the real Will Smith who is a very rich man. Think of the character in the movie. Watch how he struggles during his bad days. Everything goes wrong. He tries to sell something and it does not work. Hiswife leaves him. His son does not know that he is suffering. He gets kicked out of home. He looks for space and food. He goes for an interview when the dress he wears is dirty making things worse. This is Will Smith in the movie. Most of this happens to a person going through a bad Rahu-Saturn period.


Rahu Dasha Saturn Bhukti is usually the most unforgettable period in Rahu Dasha. Most of the times (almost 95%) it is a very tough and challenging phase. During this period the poison in Rahu the snake comes out in full. You dream of success but it become elusive and illusive. You tend to make mistakes that cannot be undone that easily. It has a lasting effect on your life in more than one way.

During this period even a disbeliever in fate will wonder “……may be there is something called Fate, something called God, or maybe Astrology is true. There is surely something that is beyond me“. These are the thoughts of a person undergoing this period.

People who never have been to an Astrologer before, start searching for one during Rahu-Sani. Such is the power of Rahu Dasha and Saturn Bhukti.

During Rahu Dasha and Saturn Bhukti you may notice that you are highly stressed on certain days and it happens in a very predictable manner. I found that the time you are greatly affected is during S.D.T.

What is S.D.T.?

Why does this combination give so much more problems?

Why is this period, RAHU-SANI such a problematic period? Saturn is a restrictive planet, tightens like a python. Saturn is slow but steady. When it turns negative it can be nagging. You simply cannot wriggle out as you did in other periods. Rahu and Saturn are similar. Rahu is they say half Saturn. Saturn in numerology is 8 and Rahu is 4 (half of 8).

Rahu represents falsehood, cheating, being cheated, deception, poison, smoke, fog, misunderstanding, wrong things, misleading, disguise etc.


When these two planets Rahu and Saturn rule you it is double trouble. It is more than the sum of these 2 planets. The effects multiply. You get into situations that offers you no solution. Even if you find one, you cannot execute the plan because of such and such reason.

Scandal through women is one of the most important thing the person should watch out for. In case the you are reading the horoscope of a lady, then the scandal may be through a woman or a man.

What is the duration of Rahu Dasha and Saturn Bhukti?

Wait. Are you going to look up a book to know this answer? Or search it again on Google? No need. You can find out easily.

But before you get to the method you need to remember that Rahu Dasha (Rahu Main Period) is for 18 years and that of Saturn is 19 years. Remember that the total number of years for all the 9 dasha periods is 120 years.

So the time share of Saturn is 19 years out of 120 years. In other words it is 19/120. So the time share of Saturn Bhukti in any dasha will be 0.15 part of the concerned period. Saturn always gets a 15% share in any period. So in Rahu Dasha which is for 18 years the time share will be 0.15 parts of 18 years. This is 2.84 year which you get by multiplying 18 years x 0.15. If you want to know what is 2.84 years it is 2 years and 0.84 x 365.25 = 310.46 days which is 10 months and some fractions. So it is 2 years 10 months and some fractions. So difficult to do if you are not good at maths.

But the ancient Masters of Astrology had a better idea. They said just multiply 18 x 19 and you get 342. The brilliant Sages said look closely at the number 342 and take the last digit. You have 2. Multiply it by 3 and you get 6. This is 6 days. The first 2 digits 34 is 34 months. Which is 2 years and 10 months and 6 days. What an idea. When I showed this method to a mathematics professor he almost fainted.

So the challenging phase of Rahu-Saturn period isfor 2 years 10 months and 6 days

Then why did I take you through the calculator method?

Simple. Only then you will take the Sages seriously. Let us admit it. We think that because of the British education that we in India received we think that the Sages were weak in mathematics. They knew more trigonometry than most of us know today. How else do you think they located the planetary positions exactly?

Rahu-Saturn comes after Rahu-Guru!

To understand about any period we need to look at what comes before it and then what comes after it. The past will show how much bad Rahu-Saturn will turn out to be. So Rahu-Saturn comes only after a Rahu-Guru is over.

This is like saying 3 comes after 2 or 7 comes after 6. I am not meaning that. I recommend you focus on Rahu-Guru first before trying to figure out what is expected in Rahu-Sani. Why? The mistake that one does in Rahu-Guru lands most people into problems. So if you are having a great Rahu-Guru period then slow down a bit as it comes to an end. During the last 6 months do not make fresh investments into anything. Do not make a fresh business commitment or relationship. The trap is usually set at the end of Rahu-Guru.

That is because Guru always likes to expand. To grow. To reach out. But with Rahu ruling you from above Guru, the thoughts are not always right. They are clouded by Rahu. You hallucinate a lot under the influence of Rahu. Expansion is prone to risks. With the restrictive Saturn ahead such expansion will meet with failure. However you will positively expand and it is good during the first 2 parts of Jupiter but in the 3rd part you not bask in your glory.

The reason is whatever happens to you today is somehow linked to the past. The past may be within this birth, or it may be a past life. Either way the key to the future is the past. If you ignore the past, there is no way you can guess what is going to happen in the future. Because if someone has succeeded or failed there is a reason that in the past he or she did something to make it happen. This is a simple fact but ignored. If you refuse to accept this then life is a game of chance according to you and there are no good reason for any event in your life. All you can say is that it just happens.

Is Rahu-Saturn always bad?

From the question you may have guessed that Rahu-Saturn cannot be always very challenging. How to find that out? If you are born at a time when the Lagna was Mesha (Aries), or Karkataka (Cancer), Simha (Leo), Vrischika (Scorpio), Dhanus (Sagittarius), or Meena (Pisces) then Rahu-Saturn period can never be good. For Makara Lagna (Capricorn) people it will have bad effects if either Satun or Rahu occupy the 2nd house or 7th house.

The other lagnas have chances for a better Rahu-Saturn effect. The clue is if Saturn is friendly to you which can happen only if you were born in Vrishabha Lagna, Thula Lagna and Kumbha Lagna then Saturn is friendly to you and so is Rahu.

When does Rahu-Saturn do good

If Rahu is in Kendra and well connected to a Trikona Lord or Vice Versa then Rahu becomes the yogakaraka. Then during RAHU-SANI period there is no need to worry about how bad it is going to be.

If Rahu is in exaltation sign which means Rahu is in Vrishabha then you should expect good events in Rahu Dasha.

You need to focus more on Saturn. If Saturn is the lord of 2nd house or the lord of the 7th house then you should get done the famous Mrityunjaya Japa Pooja (Havan) and then brace yourself for a rough ride – a roller coaster ride.

If Saturn is in Lagna and Saturn is in own house then what you get is a Pancha Mahapurusha Yoga which make Saturn very auspicous. So if Rahu is well placed and if Rahu is not in bad angle with Saturn then Rahu-Sani period will be very good.

If Rahu and Saturn are in 6/8 axis from each other or is Saturn is in the 12th house from Rahu then expect double trouble in Rahu-Saturn. So it means that if Rahu and Saturn are in angles to each other or trinal to each other then it gives you less trouble.

How to classify Rahu as Good or Bad?

If Rahu is in the 8th house or the 12th house then Rahu dasha is highly challenging most of the time. Within such a Rahu, Saturn bhukti may get tougher.

If Rahu is the lord of 2nd or 7th house then also Rahu is expected to give more challenges.

If Rahu is in the 2nd house or the 7th house then it may get bad.

If Rahu is in NeechaSthana ie Debilitation. Ithappensif Rahu is in Vrischika.

If Rahu is malefics like Saturn, Sun or Mars the problems will increase.

Remedies and Solutions in Rahu-Saturn

Pray a lot and especially during Rahu Kaalam and on all Saturdays.

Increase your charity.

Do some social service activities on all Saturdays.

Skip a meal on all Saturdays.

Avoid alcohol, non veg food and smoking etc on all Saturdays. If possible avoid it on all days in Rahu-Saturn period. Of course it is good if you can give up all these permanently.

In a strained marriage things get worse during Rahu-Saturn period.

You like to do what is forbidden. Resist the desire.

Patience is the key. Wait for this period to be over.

90% of the people who had a tough time in Rahu-Saturn made a comeback after the period. Be confident that you will be one.

Regularattendanceat your place of worship on all Saturdays.

Control your anger. Excessive anger is noted in this period.

Feed the crows. During this period bird droppings fall on your body so often.

Effects of Rahu-Saturn period

Suddenly the world looks different. Only the bad in the world is visible to a person going through Rahu-Saturn period.

A person strong and muscular starts losing his muscles and tends to look weak. People around him feels he is suffering from some disease.

Daily trouble with no sign of relief. Things get worse as the days go by.

Very high financial difficulties. You feel you are caught in a debt trap. Loss of money due to high rate of interests. Payments go pending forever. You may not be able to pay or others will not pay you what is due to you.

Your parents get annoyed with you because you are making grave mistakes. Suddenly everyone at home stop seeing eye to eye with you.You feel like leaving home and many people actually do it.

You get angry and stop abusing parents and family member, in turn they do the same thing to you. You do not know who started this.

Untimely meals.

You develop dandruff.

On 8 days like 8th, 17th and 26th and on all Saturdays you may feel like crying or you may get very upset.

You may be have to go to court or you may have the police troubling you. Banks may trouble you a lot.

You become physically weak.

You feel that you will never be able to solve your problems.

Scandal due to a lady (or due to sexual relationship)

Insult by those against whom you really cannot retaliate. It may be from a person like you mother or father or brother and you feel that you cannot even react properly due to other consideration.

A great tip for Rahu-Saturn

Give lots of importance to Rahu Kaalam and Yamagandakalam. These occur every day for about 1.5 hours each.

During Satudays, the Rahu Kaalam is to be given lot more importance. You should pray as much as possible during this time. Never start on a journey during Rahu kalam during a Rahu Mahadasha – Saturn Bhukti period. Donate money, food, clothes on all Saturdays. Go to places of worship on all Saturdays.

      Definitely. It will be a lot better than Rahu – Saturn irrespective of where RAHU and MERCURY are etc. But for specific results find out where Mercury is and is Mercury in angles or trine to Rahu and Mercury is dignified and owning good houses etc.

    Deat Punditji, is the effect of Saturn-Rahu will be similar to Rahu-Saturn or different? I will have this dasha soon..

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      It it not the same. But there are some similarities. Rahu Sani is very intense. Saturn – Rahu is not that much. But if Rahu is in the 8th or 12th from Sani then it can get really bad. Astrology is so complex that you need the entire chart.

  6. Vinod

    Dear Panditji, I have Rahu in 12th house and Venus in 3rd House (Kumbha Lagna). How will Rahu – Venus be ?

  7. ARVIND VERMA

    Sir, my daughter is Vrishabha Lagna, Kanya Rasi. She is going through Rahu dasa – Saturn Bhukti. She is also going through Sade Sati. She is having a lot of health problems and mental tension. She is coming out of Saturn Bhukti in July 2014. Also Sade Sati will end around the same time. As per your article Vrishabha Lagna people shouldn’t be troubled too much by Rahu and Saturn. But I don’t see this in her case. She is 20 yrs old and is wanting to go abroad for higher studies. I am worried about her future. Can you please advise?

    Thanks.

  14. Anonymous

    I totally agree this. I recently completed my Rahu-Saturn dasha and it was the worst period of my life. I have Rahu in 12th and Saturn in 8th house and i was also going through the 2nd phase of sade sati of saturn at the same time. I lost my father, lost the family life, hurdles in relationship, went through humiliation,emotional agony, loneliness. This is the same period when I started learning astrology, started to search the true meaning of life,afterlife,philosophy.

    • Jay

      when did you complete the rahu -shani dasa? Even I have Rahu in 12th house and saturn in 8th house. I still have Rahu- shani for 2 more years. Is it going to be any good after this dasha is complete?

  15. Rajeev

    Dear Sir, I have a Rahu in 6th house scorpio in my horoscope (Mithuna Lagna). Please let me know if this offers good or bad effects during the Rahu Mahadasa.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Check the position of Rahu in the Bhava Chart. Use equal house system for this. If Rahu continues to be in the 6th even in the bhava chart, then most of Rahu dasha will be good. However, you need to know if other grahas are influencing Rahu because Rahu is like a Chameleon, changing colors due to other things around it. Rahu is scorpio is Neecha (Debilitated). So Rahu will give bad times in certain sub periods of RAHU dasha.

      • hbksg

        Dear Sir, I checked and Rahu is 6th house in Bhava Chart and Rasi Chart. However it is in 8th house in Navamsa chart. Please let me know the effects of Rahu Maha dasa for me. Also my Rahu antar dasas under Sun, Moon and Mars were not so great. But i have heard that Rahu in 6th house is always good, so i am confused. Rahu is in 6th house Scorpio. My lagna is Mithuna. Kindly let me know on this. Thanks

        ________________________________

      • hbksg

        Dear Dhilip Sir, Rahu is present in 6th house of Scorpio. 6th house and 11th house lord is Mars. Mars is present with Jupiter in 10th house of Pisces. Rahu in 6th house Scorpio is debilitated, however its lord – Kuja is present in 10th house with Jupiter (own sign), does this mean neecha bhanga. If yes, will the Rahu Dasa period prove to be good? Kindly suggest remedies.

        ________________________________

      Excellent prediction on Rahu-Saturn period. My daughter is going through this period now till July 2014 and most of these effects are being felt by her. She has lost a lot of weight and looks anorexic, has an aversion for food, falls sick very often, is extremely irritable and always gets angry, dislikes people and prefers to keep to herself, and so on. All of this is extremely troubling for us as parents. One thing that is very confusing though is that she is a Vrishabha lagna and her Saturn is in the 9th house (lorded by Saturn itself), therefore, making Saturn a yoga karaka for her. Why then does she have to go through all the same pain that people of other lagnas go through? Why cant she see slightly a better period given that her Saturn is a good planet and benefactor for her? Her Rahu is in the 8th house in her natal chart. What can I expect for her in the mercury bhukti of Rahu dasa?

      • E K Dhilip Kumar

        Did you check out the bhava chart? The bhava chart is the one that you should use for counting the houses a planet occupies. Check out Saturn’s position. Moreover you have said that Rahu occupies the 8th house. Rahu according to Maharshi Parasara gives maximum problems only in the 8th and 12th house.

    Mr Dhilip, My Astrologer told me that I see somoe light by June 13 & improvement only by June 2014 as I am going through Rahu Dasa Sanni Bukthi. Almost all you have said has happened to me including a heart attack I survived in 2010. I will follow what all you said. But, what happens between June 13 & June 2014? Should I go away to an Ashram & do social service ? Please advice. Thank you Sir. Sampath

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Send me your name, date of birth, time of birth and place of birth to ekdhilip@yahoo.com and tell me date of you heart attack so that I will know the intensity of this period.

      • venny

        Hi Sir,

        A very good article, But i dont know the exact time of the birth, I very well knew im in rahu mahadasha but how should we calculate whether im in jupiter bhukti or saturn bhukti

      • E K Dhilip Kumar

        Download Jagannath Hora software and install it. Then feed your details and find out. It is very easy.

    Mr Dhilip, After I met you last Thursday, I am devoting my time listening & reciting Mirthuntha Mantra & yesterday I was in an ancient Shiva Temple during the Rahukalam (9 to 1030 AM). Mentally, I experience inner peace thinking I am being protected by Gods despite being in the grip of Rahu & Sanni. Om Namah Shivaya. Om Namah Shivaya. Thank you Sir for your Direction. As you said, Schools must have a 1 hour class from 6th Standard till 12th every week towards Astrology. It surely is also in our hands to control the ill-effects but we must know it first & to know it, we must believe in Astrology. Ultimately it is the belief & trust. Hope readers benefit knowing the bumpy roads & reduce accel & shift gears & use brakes & drive through this rough patch with God`s blessings.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Dear Friend, Glory to God. When you stepped into my room for the consultation, you were an atheist and now you are back to reality. I am so glad that I my extra efforts I took that day has not been wasted. Remember that from doing good only good will come. The mantra is MRITYUNJAYA Mantra the spelling was wrong.

        Dhilip Sir
        It`s exactly 1 year since I started following many of the prescriptions you had suggested to keep myself steady. Well, I have followed many but could not follow all but the remedies have made me clear myself of many things. I am moving towards following all though it is sometimes practically difficult. But, I am fighting to do it which I dint have a year before. On the professional front, things have improved though the boat keeps hitting rocks now & then but I am sailing. The weather continues to be rough but I am bracing it. I have conceded to certain things like some big business/personal outstanding may have been lost for ever. But, it never would have sink in me if I had not had the few sessions I had for a micro-level discussion which is essential for all. Your deserving fees is the best investment of my lifetime & perhaps for several more births, if I have, God forbid. No point for the readers and people who go through this phase to ignore this article & the feedback it has attracted. No point in people buying a vehicle for several lakhs and not buy a road direction book. My suggestion to all parents is to give a professional Astrological map of your child/children with recommendations. It is upto the child to take it seriously & follow as much as possible. I think it is our primary duty as parents to consult a good Astrologer/counselor, in my case, Dhilip Sir and a report given to the child. We take a simple Class V progress report & comments of the Teacher seriously but ignore a report for the Soul, which is for the rest of our lives & beyond. I marked this day in my diary and wanted to share it with readers. I will keep posting my progress report (gladly and Thank God, I am progressing and it does not matter if it is slow!) in this blog for the benefit of readers. God bless.
        Sriraj.

      • E K Dhilip Kumar

        Your comments encourage me to do more research in Astrology and contribute more to the society and to myself.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Where is your Rahu in the bhava chart? If Rahu is unfriendly to you which is to be known based on your Lagna then you should pray to either Goddess Durga or Lord Shiva. Do the remedies that have been recommended in this article.

      Hi priya

      The following things will keep you better.

      1) chant ganpathi mantra when ever you get fear in mind
      2) do not argue just let the time pass
      3) go to Durga temple Friday in rahu Kalama and light two lamps
      4) always good forums to keep patient in mind

    Now, I read in some article that, Rahu Period Starts in the age of 42-Years & will continue for 5-yrs i.e till 47-years to all the people…… Also I heard & read that, In 7th house Rahu gives very bad effects……. Is it true…… If yes then please give me the solution to keep Rahu calm & cool… & … to stop the further distractions of my life…

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      It is a mistake to think that Rahu Dasha starts when a person is 42. If fact it can start anytime. Sometimes it may not even happen for certain people. For example those born in the stars of Guru (Jupiter) will have it only after 100 years of their age. So buy get your horoscope cast and find out when your Rahu Dasha starts. Please learn about Vimshottari Dasha system from the internet.

  29. Sivaguru K

    Sir, Currently I am going through this period. Left my job 8 months back & I am still in search of a job. If I had known this thing before 8 months, I wouldn’t have left my job. My parents are also annoyed by me. Whatever I do for getting a job, it stops abruptly without any progress. I think at least once in a day of leaving the house permanently or taking some extreme steps. I have an interview on 6th April which is very important. My worry is now that local astronomer says that my rahu dasa sani bhuti is ending on 13-Apr-2013( But the Jaganatha hora software says 23-04-2013 !!!, why is there difference between the two) Since it is ending by 13 April as per my local astronomer, is it going to be tough or impossible to clear the interview as the interview falls under this bad period. Hoping for a reply/suggestion from you sir. Thank you.

    Date of birth: 02-04-1987, Time: 8:08 PM, Place: Chennai.
    Rasi: Rishabam, Lakhnam: Thulam, Natchathiram: karthigai.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      You should not use astrology like this for example, the outcome of interview etc. You will be affected by astrology if you use it to that extent. Use it to know the good times and bad times and adjust accordingly. If you are in a bad period you should accept jobs that are below your expectation. This is how you solve problems in a bad time. Do not blame astrology for everything. If your Lagna is Thula as you say then wear a good quality EMERALD on your little finger to increase your luck. For more details contact me professionally.

    Sir, great work. really superb.
    My rahu dhasa started in January 2013, for me Bharani star, dob 24/11/1977 at 4.30 a.m. – coimbatore. Thula ascendant – rahu in 12th house in mercury house – virgo. actually situations made me to move out from joint family(which i loved a lot) , physical health is not good as before, anger – which is a very big challenge to face. i am very much afraid how I overcome 18 years. Will u pls check and tell me when will my debts gets cleared and when will i own a house.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Worship Shirdi Sai Baba on all Thursdays and you will see miracles in your life. Rahu is ignorance and doing forbidden activities. Guru is knowledge, and opposes ignorance. Being born in a Thula Lagna means Jupiter is an enemy planet in your horoscope. So worship GURU, recite GURU mantra, learn meditation from ISHA yoga etc.

    Hello Dilip Sir,

    I have a very basic question for you. My father is going through Rahu Mahadasha. My mother is going to complete her Rahu Mahadasha in May this year. I have Shani Dasha (just been a year now). Does this combination have any positive/negative impact on our relationship? We are a joint family.

    Thank you!

  34. Shivanand

    Neechabhanga Raja Yoga happens if a debilitated Planet is aspected by another debilitated Planet. Debilitated Rahu in Scorpio aspected by debilitated Ketu in Taurus will it cause Neechabhanga Raja Yoga?

    Hello Sir..My dob is 29 jan 1975 time 2351pm Bangkok Thailand. I am wearing blue sapphire and emerald at the moment..SOmeone suggest i wear Gomed as well..i deal mainly with foreigners..should i wear gomed? thankyou..

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      2 things. GOMED allowed only if you are in RAHU DASHA. 2nd condition is that RAHU must be a yogakaraka. If not a yogakaraka then wearing GOMED is like consuming poison. GOMED is linked to RAHU. So be careful.

    Dear Dhilip Ji

    I am going through Rahu Mahadasha and Rahu antardasha and have had challenges in my married life, with my husband leaving me for the 4th time in the last 12 years. My Rahu antardasha ends on 13 October 2013. My husband’s Rahu mahadasha starts on 12 May 2013. Are there any chances of our reunion in the near future? Also, is maha mrityunjaya mantra a good rememdy for rahu mahadasha? Thanks.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Mrityunjaya homa is done in case the concerned planets are ruling the 2nd house or the 7th house or if they are placed in these houses or if there is a life threatening situation with regard to health. Otherwise pray to Shirdi SAIBABA if Jupiter is a functional malefic planet, or pray to Goddess Durga in case Jupiter is a functional benefic as your ascendant. For more details contact your Astrologer.

  37. deepika

    my son has venus,ketu and jupiter together in 2nd house and mars and saturn both are in 6th house .what does it mean???he will have malefic affect of all these planets…??his ascendant is libra.his dob is 26th july 2012 and time is 12:12 PM,place-bhopal.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Rahu-Sani period science does not work well. Science works well in our good times. In our bad times, science does not help that much. That is why doctors cannot be of much use during such periods. Wait patiently for Rahu-Sani to be over. Patience is the key. Add Prayers. Words that start with P are controlled by Saturn. PAIN for example. PATIENCE is the positive side of SATURN. Both start with P. Pray on all SATURDAYS and especially during SATURDAY RAHU KAALAM as both SATURN AND RAHU are connected in that time. Your date of birth is 8 (17).

      • surabhisurabhi

        sir does my birth date 17/7/80 i.e. 8 no. makes this rahu-shani period more powerful.doctors have suggested surgery should i wait this period to be over..i have started worshipping shiva temple with milk and black sesame seeds,that has helped me to control my depression..thanks

      • surabhisurabhi

        I am a mithun ascendent with mercury in first house(vakri) I have sun and rahu in 2nd house and saturn,jupiter and moon in 3rd house,mars in 4th house,ketu in 8th,and venus in 12th house.I m wearing a zircon 3carot in white gold and moonga lacate in chain will these help…do i need to do mahamrityunjay yajya….my rahu dasha shani bhukti is going to end on 6th june14

      • Passionatekey

        I find it weird that you said P is controlled by Saturn and the number 8. Because my name starts with P and also my day of Birth adds up to the number 8! Went through Sade Sani and Rahu Dasha-Sani Bukti at the SAME time and it was horrendous. Although things are much calmer now, Now that I am in Rahu Dasha-Budha Bukti, but I have still have unending problems which are still not solved. I am still praying daily for relief.

    I am in lot of Financial distress. There is a court case going
    My business is bad. have taken loans and further i think i have to take more .
    my expenses is double/three times then my income. There has been fights with my wife .

    please guide me.pl help me . i go to Shani temple and hanuman madir on saturdays regularly

    my date of birth- 16/8/1967 time 1800hrs
    name- BHAVESH
    my lagna is Makar and rashi is Dhanu.

    should i wear any gem stone???

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      One of the best thing to do is to wait patiently for RAHU -Sani to be over. Then during the 2nd half of Rahu – Budha usually problem solving will happen. During 1st half of Rahu-Budha you will notice some positive changes though.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Wear a Good quality EMERALD on the little finger. Do not invest in gems until you have sufficient money. Instead wear a lot of green color dress and avoid wearing Red colors. Soon you will notice a lot of difference.

      • BHAVESH PARIKH

        sir,
        thanks for the reply and suggestion. as per your comments patience is the key .will wait for the good time but as of now pain is killing.Business very low . have to take loans . not able to earn , my expenses more than income. not getting loans also.. tensions and turmoils every now and then.

      • E K Dhilip Kumar

        In my bad Rahu Dasha Saturn Bhukti, I went through the same problem like you. I prayed to GOD everyday. I read many mantras and donated whatever I could. I walked instead of going by vehicles mainly because I did not have money for petrol. I was angry with the crowd in the chennai bus. I prayed to Lord Hanuman who finally saved me. I did fasting the whole day on Saturdays but today I do not recommend fasting as it makes you very weak. Instead try skipping one meal every Saturday. The relief comes only after Rahu Dasha – Sani Bhukti. Today it is all like a dream. Like that it will be to you at the later stage.

      • B PARIKH

        sir, am doing the jap of shani beej mantra ,
        i used to do the rahu beej mantra jap before, should i continue.

        Lord has protected me till now. He will save me surely.

      • E K Dhilip Kumar

        Yes. Surely the Mantras are powerful. It is like a scientific formula. They all work. Like E = MC2 (mc square) Continue the Mantras and you will be saved.

  49. Vedic Aquarius Rising

    My Vedic rising is Aquarius 25 and I am in my Rahu-Saturn-Jupiter dasa until Oct 4th 2013. BOTH my natal Rahu and Saturn are in Scorpio. Saturn 3 Scorpio and Rahu 10. I have an Aswini moon 1 degree. My Jupiter is in Leo 16 degrees. I have workaholic tendencies and many friends at work too. It hasn’t been “that bad” but again I am naturally a workaholic. After Oct 4th my life should improve – correct?

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Life always improves after RAHU-SATURN period. It is like a testing period. Since you are working hard in your workplace you will be rewarded by SATURN – because SATURN does not want us to enjoy life. Enjoyment eats into our Karmic balance. Being a workaholic is good but being an ALCOHOLIC during RAHU-Saturn is disaster.

      • Vedic Aquarius Rising

        Thank you so much for your reply. I very rarely drink alcohol because alcoholism ran in my family and I was always afraid to go down that road. I am age 56 now so I think I made it without difficulties there. Again Thank you for taking the time to reply.

    Sir, my rahu mahadasha has just started, i have rahu saturn yuti in 8th pisces and aspected from yogakarak mars, jupiter & ketu in 2nd virgo.
    with simha lagna & rashi sun & mercury in 4th
    i am very much worried about what will happen in rahu mahadasha in job ( company are not getting orders & relieving employees ), will my family also get disturbed? pls guide

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Check the position of these planets in the bhava chart. Whenever you count houses use the BHAVA Chart and not the RASI Chart. Also check if the planets are in the bhava sandhi. Do the right remedies instead of worrying. Work harder in a bad time.

      • mehul

        Sir, i do not know about bhava chart, my dob is 11.12.1968. pls advise with your expertise

  52. Vedic Aquarius Rising

    Would a Bhava chart be the same as a lagna chart? If Bhava means astrological houses and the lagna chart starts with the 1st house?

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      The RASI Chart holds good for approximately every 2 hours. Whereas the BHAVA CHART is very sensitive to small changes in time even within that 2 hours. In case of TWINS or TRIPLETS etc the RASI Chart is likely to be SAME all the time. Changes will be there only in the Bhava chart and in many divisional chart.

  53. Troubled

    Dear Sir,
    Thank you for this article and I wish I came through this article 3 years ago, when my Rahu Dasa-Sani Bukti started which COINCIDED with the last part of my SADE SATI (Simha Rasi). I would have been so careful then, and I would not make hurried decisions in my Rahu-Guru time, which caused so much of problems during Sani Bukti. So, you can imagine the hell I went through. I went through most of the effects of Rahu-Saturn as you explained above AND added with the bad effects of Sade Sati period. Although the bad time is over (both Rahu Dasa-Sani Bukti and Sade Sati), my troubles are still not over yet. Although my time is supposedly to be good now, I still have not seen the light at the end of the tunnel.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Read the article again and you will find your answers. I cannot spend time with the horoscope of each reader separately as that is not possible for me due to pressure from my clients who come to my office to me meet me directly or discuss over skype. In the mean time you can recite the magic mantra:

      सर्वमङ्गलमाङ्गल्ये शिवे सर्वार्थसाधिके ।
      शरण्ये त्र्यम्बके गौरि नारायणि नमोऽस्तु ते ॥
      Sarva-Manggala-Maanggalye Shive Sarvaartha-Saadhike |
      Sharannye Trya[i-A]mbake Gauri Naaraayanni Namo[ah-A]stu Te ||

      I have been using this for a very long time and that is why I recommend this to you. Because I went through the same period like you.

  54. lokvas

    Dear SIr

    i m going through Saturn antardasha IN RAHU MAHADASHA it have already started showing the negative signs to me my Rahu is in 3rd House and Saturn in 6 House what do you suggest i will lose my current job DID i able to get new job easily bcoz from nov 2014 my panoti period will start so please suggest what to do

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      During bad times work harder and impress the boss with your intelligent and hard work. Do not blame everything on planetary periods. Sometimes That is the meaning of an astrologically bad time. You should avoid SATURDAY night fever. Give up something you love like a particular food on Saturday. Pray a lot on Saturday. Feed crows on all Saturdays. Do not quit the current job before getting another job.

    • sriraj

      Dear Maha Vishnu, With the permission of my Guide and zfriend Dhilip Sir, may I suggest you do a ‘Samashanam’. It is brandind of Sangu and Chakaram on your left and right shoulder by a Guru. Ahobilam Head Sri Jeeyar does this. I got this suggestion from my cousin just hours before for myself as I am going through Rahu Dasa Sanni Bukthi. After meeting Dhilip Sir, my life has changed.

      Go for this Branding and Rahu Dosha will reduce to great extent. Pray to AdhiSeshan and Seshadri (Balaji) if your Bukthi is Sanni.
      Go for a consultation with Dhilip Sir. He skypes too.

      Seek Guidance. Seek Guru. Seek God. Result is Goodness.

      God bless. Sriraj.

    • sriraj

      If we all realize that it’s not the Planets that hurt us and they actually help all of us realize our present and past sins, repent, give a great chance dissolve them instead of accumulating during every birth, we will understand all Grahas are actually friends. How can he spare his rod to spoil his own children? So, all sufferings are result of our own doings. Astrology shows the road one can expect but to drive safe is our own choice. We should drive following the road rules, not run over others and arrive intact. I am just repeating what you told me. It’s your wise words. Hope readers know the road ahead of them and be prepared. God bless. Sriraj.

    Hi! I just would like to offer you a big thumbs up for the excellent information you’ve got right here on this post. I’ll

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Mr Sriraj, based on your advise I saw the movie, 7 Pounds. I saw it on a Saturday. Along with the hero there are 8 people in the car that crashes in the movie. Will Smith is the 8th person. A great movie revealing what a human being is capable of! So much is possible. Thank you for telling me about this movie. I am happy that you found peace. Peace is Shanti that means ends of SHANI, SHANI ANTI whichever way you look you get the answer.

  63. praveen

    Hello sir . I finished my Rahu-sani period in October 2012. since then I have been waiting for something good to happen which will make me come out of the nightmare experiences of this period. But I cant find any positive signs and much to my anxiety …things that are happening are annoying me. Please give me any solution sir.

  64. Gayathri

    Is this all our karma bad deeds of our past birth, we undergo in rahu- Sani desa.pl let me know

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Not only in RAHU-SANI. KARMA controls each and every moment of our life. But the level of karma varies. In periods like RAHU-SANI and KETU Dasha Karma is all powerful. Other times Karma is less powerful.

    • sriraj

      Yes Ms Gayathri. It can be the outcome of ‘pitru sabam’ (ancestral curse as annual shardam may not have been performed), neglect of ‘Kula Deivam’ (family deity) and present bad deeds will only add more mirchi to sufferings we undergo. This is general like we reading ‘its monsoon in india’ . It actually is still very much summer in Tamilnadu when it Rains in Goa! Is it not? So, you got to assess your position to arrive more accurately at where you are in India – Chirapunjee or Kakinada. Further, you got to see where in these places you are – indoors safe or outdoors unsafe. Then, use the umbrella which is God for all cures ! So, have your horoscope accessed and seek remedy before a flood sweeps you off your feet or you dehydrate under the hot sun. A good Astrologer can do this.
      It would be the best investment for your soul which is now in search of peace. God bless. Sriraj

    Sir i am Tula lagna and mesh rashi. Retrograde shani in mesh with chandrama and have rahu in kumbh.In navmansh chart in have saturn ,sun and rahu in Tula. How will my rahu dasha be.Thanks

  66. Gayathri

    Thanks. I myself know astrology a little. But this period made me to study astrology more as dilip sir tells. Many people are going to be benefitted by the blog.

  67. Gayathri

    Dilip sir, when I put my data in computer it tells I am dhanur lag a. But when cast through panchang vakkiya i am scorpion Lagan. Why these difference. All my life horoscope palangal are happening to vrchika Lagan.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Send me your logic on how you have proven you are Vrischika Lagna person. Let me see how much you have understood. How can you cast your horoscope in two different ways. There is only one way. Vakkiya Panchang is rejected by 99% of the Astrologers in the world. So why waste time on it?

  68. Gayathri

    Always in bad times it is better for all of us to remember the movie ” navagraha nayagi”. A Tamil film t come long back explaining Dasas Bhukti and how the poet kalidasar came . It is all the time. Let’s beleive good times will be ahead.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      I have recommended this movie to many of my clients. I saw it long time back. It has a big positive impact on me. We can create good times by working hard. Working hard in increasing our positive karma and decreasing the negative karma. Even in games there are so many rules to be followed. A game is actually a nonsense. Yet so much training, practice and motivation is necessary. Then think about life. How can we play it without rules and regulations? We create our bad times and we create our good times.

  69. Gayathri

    And bad tims will also be there. Let’s hope. The film deals abt that and nine planets play a vital role in life

  70. Gayathri

    That is right . I can email The details.Even I am surprised by these.

    I want to share my experience. I went through all the difficulties mentioned in the article. Lost job and I wasn’t able to find one for one year. I used to visit Vinayagar, Hanuman and Kamatchi amman temple daily. Finally in July I got a job though the salary was only 1/3rd of what I got previously, I worked there for one month. Recently attended a interview in a good company & got selected. Most important thing which I found interesting is that the Interview was held on the first saturday of August. THE SATURDAYS WHICH I USUALLY FIND IT VERY DIFFICULT TO DO ANY KIND OF WORK AND THE MONTH WHICH IS AGAIN 8TH MONTH OF THE YEAR.

    My Rahu Sani Bhukti ended in April. Finally good things happened. I hope everything goes well from now on.

    Thank you Dilip sir for giving us such a great article about this particular period.

    Nice article Sir. I am in Rahu-Sani period and going through all the things mentioned in your post. I was totally surprised after reading this. Thank you for sharing with us!!

      More important is doing the remedies to reduce the effects of Rahu-Saturn period. We should do all we can to reduce the negative effects of Karma.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Mr Praveen, we cannot say that for sure. Because it depends on several factors. Sometimes one can have a trouble free Rahu-Sani because these planets are placed well, they may be causing good yogas to the person and so many other reasons.

    Dear Mr. Dilip,
    I need your guidance on the following:
    My Lagna is Vrichika and Rasi is Meenam. Venus is in my Eighth house and I’m going through the Venus Maha Dasha now. With Shani and Rahu transiting my 8th House and Jupiter transiting my 4th House, my life has been turned upside down. Failure in all ventures, losses beyond any control even without my own fault or doings.
    My astrologer casted my chart and indicated that I’m going through the Chandra Bukthi now but when I did the inputs on the Astrodrona Blog to create my homepage, it shows that I’m going through the Venus Maha Dasha and Rahu Bukthi.
    Venus is in the 8th house in my Rasi Chart while Rahu is together with Mars in my 10th House and Saturn is my 3rd House together with Jupiter.
    Please help me with some remedies that I can do/follow to overcome the extreme difficult period I’m going through now.
    My life was all well and fine till November 2012 despite Saturn transiting my 8th House and Jupiter transiting my 3rd House at that time. It was from the time that Rahu transit occurred that my life took and immediate turn for the worse and is continuing. Anything I do ends up with loss, hurt and emotional disturbance.
    Please help me and guide me. I shall be ever thankful.

    Hello, an important question for you. Is there any surety that Rahu-Shani bhukti period starts tapering down if 1 or 2 months is left at last time. Becoz whatever I have noticed in whole period of Rahu-Shani Bhukti period, that became true and similar what all you’ve mentioned in article.

  91. B PARIKH

    ir ,you had replied to me in june and in continuation i would like to say that somehow by gods grace i have pulled on last eight months any how. but now it seems i am in dead corner and not able to get out from this fix.i am not able to pay my childs fee and dont know how will i pay my offfice rent. i am in a lot of depression and feel like commiting suicide .not able to pay my suppliers., expenses too high then income. i am completely broken and shattered as business is very very low. i pray regurlarly, go to shiva temple every day and pray lord hanuman everyday and on saturday i go to shani temple. i dont have any energy in me
    please advise
    my rahu dasa , shani bhukti ends in march.2014, still 5 months to go.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      You will be able to cross over. Suicide is the worst kind of action that a human being can do and this will have effects for many births to come. Please do not even think of it. PRAYER PRAYER PRAYER believe in it. I went through this period and went through the same experience you said. At that time I never thought I will come out of it. I did SATURDAY whole day fast and kept chanting the name of GOD whenever I found the time. One day you will be happy that you listened to me. Explain to people you need time and that things will change in the future. About 60 clients are now my permanent clients who were guide by me in their bad RAHU SANI period. They all made it. WHY NOT YOU?

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Job instability is one of the things that happen in RAHU-SATURN period. Give up 1 item that you like a lot like a particular food, habit, etc on all Saturdays, 8th, 17th and 26th. Watch my YouTUbe video on S.D.T. Saturday is one of the SDT. Worship Lord Hanuman on all SDTs. Be patient with the bad time. DO not make it worse by getting angry or losing faith in good things of life like GOD. Be calm with elders in your family. GO TO YOUR PLACE OF WORSHIP as often as possible. Recite the following mantra 108 times during SDT. सर्वमङ्गलमाङ्गल्ये शिवे सर्वार्थसाधिके ।
      शरण्ये त्र्यम्बके गौरि नारायणि नमोऽस्तु ते ॥

  96. A. K Sharma

    Dear Dhilip Sir; Thank you very much for such a great article. I have couple of questions… if you can have a look it will be great…this is for my personal knowledge(i could not find solution in ur article)..
    1) if rahu is exalted in 2nd house( in Taurus with venus and sun at 12 degree) and saturn(approx 17 degree with mars) is also exalted in libra for mesh lagna, how will be the rahu dasha, rahu-shani bhukti, and shani dasha interms of success, growth and progress??? I understand that both are at a bad angle (8), but since both are exalted, effect should be progressive.. Additionally rahu is with sun (the trikon lord) and venus( in own house). i understand that sun is opposite to rahu, will dat bring negative effect for the person during rahu mahadasha…
    2) if rahu is exalted and in 2nd house from lagna,how will be the time for professional development and marriage?

    Thank you in advance… will really appreciate your expertise on this

  98. Shyaam.M.

    Respected sir, You videos and articles are amazing and hit me hard. My name is Shyaam and born on Nov.26th-1956–very spiritual and into prayer and meditation for years.. Being a teacher I have helped a lot of students–done charity from early days–like to help people–fed dogs etc. I am 57 years of age. The first half of my life was good and my career picked up fast but after 2,000 till now life is become tough. Am I under the severe effect of Shani? Good things have also happened –My wife is earning well–My daughter got a very good job but I have given interviews for many jobs but only small assignments are coming to me.Something is going wrong. in the last few years. For years I get up in the morning and do prayer and meditation.
    Kindly help. –I am wearing yellow topaz

    Dear Sir,
    Have you wrote any article regarding Ketu in 12th house? Cuz for me its in that place, and astrologers are telling that this will be my last jenma or something. Are they true?

  102. Umesh

    Dhilip Kumar Sir,
    Wow brilliant article, amazing narration, Genuine experience, pinpointed to the exact period,
    very good observation, very good analysis of the theory / Rules of astrology.
    now i understood why in general saying rahu mahadasha 6th year considered as challenging
    now i also understood that in common why the frequent bird droppings considered inauspicious by elderly people.
    Thank you once again

      Looking forward to your take or article on Rahu Mangal dasha..

  105. Sri

    Dear Mr.Dhilip Kumar, Namaste

    What will be the effects if a person has both Rahu Dasha and also Sade Sath in planetary positions.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      It will be very tough. But that does not mean bad results. It is like exam times. Not all students fail in tough exams.

  115. errabelli

    Hello every one.. i would like to share my experiences with all the followers of Mr.Dhilip and profound believers as well as non believers and criticizers of this ancient Indian science. Mr.Dhilip knows me very well. I have been following his work and learning from him since past few years. coming to me , i am a physician by profession. I came to usa in 2010 for higher education. I was the best student throughout my academic career. First in school, best rank in medical entrance and a good student in medical college. I was imagining a high flying career with these credentials. But there was something else in store for me. My Rahu-sani period started in Deember 2009. I came to USA in february 2010. Rahu in 12th house and sani in 3rd house. I never was a believer of astrology. But things took so painfull turn during this period that i started to learn and believe that there is something beyond our control. I was also going through 3rd phase of 7.5 period of sade sati at this time. I have never scored low on any exam throughout my academic career , but for the first time i failed in an exam with only one mark during this period. It has severely affected my prospects for my higher studies in usa. My closest relatives who were everything for me since my childhood deserted me in this phase. I never realised this side of them untill this period came. I thought that my career almost has come to an end. Somehow i came across mr.dhilips article and started looking at my horoscope. I realised that i was going through this period. I started praying , learnt to be patient. I struggled but kept praying. I got help from an absolutely unknown person in may 2013 and things started to improve. I got the most happiest news on march 17th 2014 and i am at peace now because my problems are almost solved now. The reason why i am mentioning the dates is because it will help the readers to comprehend how the planetary periods influence our life events. I spoke with Mr.Dhilip in march 2013 , he advised me to keep praying and have patience and belief that things will eventually take good turn in coming days. It happened to my surprise. Now , i am a completely changed person with staunch belief in god and astrology. I am narrating my experience so that readers will be able to understand that astrology is science and start having belief in god.. thank you.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Thank you Doctor. You will have a good future because Rahu-Saturn taught me lessons like it did for me. After the lesson we get wiser. Internet is a useful tool if we use it properly. Even I was once upon a time a great fighter against Astrology and even God concepts. I said everything is in our hands. Later situations taught me something else. I got the happiest moment on life on July 26 1994 after years of charity on 8th, 17th and 26th and that is why I am eager to teach this to others. At the same time I earn my livelihood in this field. Yet I love it and I am passionate about Astrology. Money is a unit of positive Karma. Excess money is a curse. I spent about 7 years in Free consultation without income when I sold off all my property especially of my wife. I promised her that I will earn back the money for her before I leave. I think I am half way through.

      Surprisingly, more people from other faiths are now asking for paid consultation. Surprisingly because Astrology was wrongly associated with Hinduism. However I am proving to all of them that it has little to do with Hinduism.

      I have about 200 doctors as my regular clients and some of them are greatly impressed by the fact that I have been blending astrology and modern science using common sense approach.

      However once in a long while I find a few people speaking about my fees. However I cannot help it.

  116. Sanju

    Dhilip Sir,

    I am really glad to see your article, as well as the wealth of information in the comments too. I have had my Rahu-Sani period in 1988-1991, my age 12-15, which also coincided with my Sade-sati. It was obviously highly stressful but I topped the classes too, in this period, though, due to physical and mental troubles, I didn’t really get the joy that people tend to associate with such achievements. Looking back, I am now able to relate to that period much better. I thank God for allowing me to pass through all those ordeals, into my present.

    Seeing your well intentioned articles, I would like to provide any assistance to you, in your work, to the best of my capability, simply as a service. If you think I can be of any assistance, (freely), do let me know.

    Sanju

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Learn Astrology. Start collecting horoscopes and start writing about it. That is a great way to serve the community. People do not understand why certain things are happening at certain times. Astrology is the most useful source of knowledge. Once you have started reading horoscopes I will pass on 100s of horoscopes that are with me (free consultation requests). As of now I have close to 3000 horoscopes for free consultation. Though I have taught Astrology to many they are busy with their own profession and have never come forward to help me out.

  117. Hari

    Dear Dilip Sir,

    I am running through Rahu Dasa Saturn Bhukti. It has started its own effects. I have lost my job before few days. My wife gone from me. Now I’ve been left alone. Feeling very much hectic. Lot of depression. So many times I felt that I should not live and suicidal tendency is arising often. I’ve read your article so many times and done all the remedies. But still nothing is working for me. Pls help me with this regard. My DOB: 18-06-1982, Time: 08:00 pm. Place: Srirangam, Trichy.Please let me know specifically according to my horoscope, what should I do now. Please help.

    • cnu reddy

      Hello Hari,

      Even i am facing the same problem. the great thing was I had 71/2 years shade shani period with rahu mahadasha. That stupid shani period was over and rahu dasha shani bukti is running. I lost every thing, the only one good thing is i am still 35 years old bachelor. i was on the road since 8 years.

      I am asking dilip sir, Sir is there any mantra to take revenge on these planets?

      You better try one thing. When you take bath, first you mix water with ur urine and take bath. this worked for me.

      goodluck.

      • E K Dhilip Kumar

        The planets are not the cause. They are mere indicators of our Karma. Our Karma is created by us during past lives. Read the Bhagavad Gita. The attitude of revenge is a bad quality. I know you have gone through tough times. Recite the Mantra, Sarva Mangala Mangalye, download it from the internet. Recite it everyday and your troubles will start coming down.

  118. Uttej

    Sir, my name is uttej , I was born on 31st dec 1987 now I am goin under rahu saturn period from nov 2012 , rahu is in 11th house along with jupiter and saturn in 8th house along with sun and mercury in rasi chakram can u pls tell me

  119. Sri

    Dear Mr.Dhilip Kumar, Vanakam

    Since i am currently under Rahu Dasha and Saturn Bhukti, I am following your instructions in your article. Every Saturday i make sure i carry bunch of Bananas with me and distribute the same to homeless. Also i cook and serve meals for homeless once in 2 months on Saturdays. After doing this i feel peace in me and relaxed.Thank you for your suggestion.

    Thanks
    Sri

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Peace is a word that starts with P. Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthih. Problems can be overcome by Prarthana (Prayers). These remedies worked for me and so I started speaking about it to others. I ask every reader to share their experiences on the internet. Never does any one lose by giving to others….. and never does any one gain by stealing from others.
