Why this research?

Proving the power of Saturn in the horoscope.

17th relates to Saturn. I am of the opinion that all those who are under Saturn influence get affected mostly on these dates.

Also on 17th April 2014, Moon and Saturn are together in the sky.

I expect this date to be very eventful and important – I want to confirm such opinion based on research.

      Thank you for the feedback and participating in the research. Many people reached me privately through my email etc. Actually I prefer if readers give feedback as comments underneath the article so all can see.

  6. shashi rekha

    meena rashi the worst bad health, quarrel at home almost mental breakdown still feeling the effect.

  7. shashi rekha

    guruji they say people wont die during sadesathi, panchama, astama shani period. but how lawyer meena rashi at malaysia died?

      • shashi rekha

        Respected guruji I am from Bangalore and astrologers here say during astama sade sathi and panchama even if we try to commit suicide we cant succeed as we have to under go and suffer. even Nalamaharaja story what I have read says the same thing.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      that person may be in a maraka dasha and maraka bhukti and that adds to the already existing sade sati.

  8. Rahul

        i just saw ur article about 17th april, but in my case i got big accident almost escaped death on 18th april 2014 …am meena rasi revathi nakshatram .. that was the first week i arrived in japan for job and i was hospitalisesd for three months…

  11. Hari Krishna Gupta

    Dear Delip ji , I am little confused as saturn is rules by no 8 . now how to see the effect of shani on these dates only or the totally on any date which add to the total to 8 ( example : 15april 2014 and its total will be 8 ) so saturn effect will be more on this day or only on any month date only which is having 8,17,26 day of month only .

    kindly clarify it sir as I can see with your wide knowledge you can see it from many angle .
    as i am taurus lagna , shani + rahu yukti in libra (6th house) . is there any chances making money in life , as already approching to 43 years (DOB 6june 1971 time :5:30 am , Bulandshahr -U.P )

    Please reply
    Har Krishna gupta

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Do not give importance to the FULL date, give importance to just the date like 8, 17 and 26th. If a date like the Tsunami date: 26 12 2004 happens it is very powerful because 26 is there and the FULL DATE adds up to 8 making the Tsunami date extremely bad. If an 8th falls on a Saturday it is called double saturn. The malaysian flight took off on a 8 and it was also a Saturday.

      • Arjun


        Today is 17th Jan 2015 , thus date is adding to 8 and so is the full date. It is also a Saturday. Lets see how today’s day goes. I pray to God that it remains uneventful and peaceful.


  12. SR

    Dear Sir, I had a harrowing time on April 16th.. as I realized that I misplaced some very important documents. My wife said that she never saw me so disturbed ! April 17th was nothing special.. routine day.. I am Tula Rashi and running Saturn-Mars Mahadasha Antardasha!

  13. Kshitij

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      I know how you would be feeling on the sudden demise of your dear grandmother. May her soul rest in peace.

    Kanni Rasi, Chitra Natchathram (Last leg of Sade-sati)
    Saturn and Rahu in 10th house in Lagna horoscope.

    17th April 2014 – Thursday
    Started with severe stomach ache in the midnight, lasted for 1/2 hr.
    Day was slow – very slow day at work.
    Day ended with stomach ache which also lasted for 1/2 hr atmost.

  15. Regina Sheila

    Kanni Rasi, Chitra Natchathram (Last leg of Sade-sati). I had a very bad day. On that day I sacked my manager, he threatens me and I have to go to police station to lodge a report on him. So many incidence took place on that day.

  16. vishal

    people can die in ashtama shani……..jiah khan suicide…….pisces moon…..

  17. sindhu

    Lost job on April 17th all of a sudden. No luck yet ..

  18. Mana

    Well the Malaysian airliner which crashed or rather got shot happened on 17th July, was named flight MH17 and the nakshatra was uttarbhadrapada (saturn lord). I thought of your article on seeing this news.

  19. Mana

    Interestingly, the Malaysia Airlines crash shares a date with another major airline disaster – the crash of TWA Flight 800 which exploded over Long island killing 230 people onboard. It coincides with the 18th anniversary of the crash on July 17 1996, which is still regarded by many as a mystery.

    Again date is 17th, flight number adds to 8 and ruling nakshatra was pushyami (saturn)

  20. Someone

    Nothing worth noting down. But the person I love, her birthday is on April 17. I sent her a bouquet of roses, and she thanked me. Thats all that happened on 17th april. Nothing good, nothing bad. I am Vrischik rasi… I think she is Mithuna

  21. KS

    Misunderstandings in family with husband and in-laws on 17th April . Vishakha nakshatra 1st Pada, cancer lagna. Seperation from husband on 17th May and came to Maternal home on 26th May.

  22. Regu

    Nothing special. I had to move from one location to another for better on 17th April…I’m Meena Rasi (Ashtama Sani)

  23. Someone

    I posted earlier in this thread, and as I am getting notifications, decided to post this. I think that saturn can be very tough for some people.
    I am going through my KETU mahadasha, and I am Dhanu lagna, Vrischik rasi, and Leo in Sun sign, anuradha nakshatra. I posted earlier on this forum saying that I had gifted a person I like something on her (lagna libra, rasi mithuna, sun leo) birthday which is on 17th April. We had a good communication on that day, since that day we have spoken very less. Our friendship is good, but we are distant. I am aware that its because Ketu is detaching me frm the people I love. If 17th April is her bday, and most of her bdays have been very good for her, I assume Saturn is being very good for her, maybe?

    My Ketu mahadasha ends on 2016 april, but till then i have a positive attitude, and I just cross my fingers that things may remain the same, after that improve when my Venus mahadasha begins. In my chart my venus is in libra, and mootrikona. Also Jupiter is very benefic for me, so I hope that in the peak phase of Shani sade sati, at least upto nov 2015, things will be okay as Jupiter moved to the 9th house. During the 1.5 years left of shani´s peak phase, I will already be in Venus mahadasha, and Ketu Mahadasha will have ended… So I expect mixed results, yet, I consider myself lucky for a Strong Jupiter placement (my lagna is Saggitarius) and also a good placement for Venus as venus is usually a malefic for a dhanu lagna native.

    Frankly, I was once told my an astrologer when he spoke about fate. If astrology is so believed in, why would an astrologer speak of fate? At the same time of remedies. Contradicting statement.

  24. Sri

    Tomorrow is Saturday, 17 Jan 2015 and also tags Anusham Star. Request all readers to devote most of your time in meditation, prayers, Poojas and above all SOCIAL SERVICE TO Man and Animals/Birds. Pledge to stop drinking liquor & smoking from tomorrow onward. Pledge to donate liberally to the deserving and needy. Visit a Gosala (Cow Shelter), Blue Cross and show your compassion by working or donating. Everyday is a Saturday & in my opinion a great Day to take care of the poor, patients and those who are suffering. Sit with an old Grandma in an Old Age Home, hold her hand, talk to her, show her that even a stranger can be a grandchild. Donate. Serve. Do not get into arguments as the POWER of Saturn is high tomorrow. Concede, calm down, smile and practice patience. Post your experience tomorrow and in the days to come on how Saturday, 17 Jan 2015 went by you. Pranams to my Guruji Dhilip Kumar.
    God bless All. Sri. (The same posted on “26 April 2014, Contribute to Research Part 2“)

  25. M@yur

    I am sorry, I saw the post only recently, so responding over a year later.
    I am going to answer both the parts, with some more info in part 2.

    my details, if you need to verify: dob 16/11/1983 6:55 am Mumbai (Male)

    April 15 2014, my maternal grandmother departed the material world. It was not a “huge” shock having observed her for the prior 2 years.
    I was in the midst of interviews, and asked the company to schedule the last round for Thursday or Friday (17/18), and they responded with 18th April.

    Interview was successful.

    I am interested in astrology since a long time, but was NOT checking and cross checking all tithis and daily charts then, so it might have been the “Grace of God” or “Grace of Saturn” to have the two events spread around, but not on the 17th.

    off-topic: Thank you very much for the wonderful insights that you provide in your lessons and comments. Since reading these, I have started thinking not on how the planetary positions are going to affect me, but how do I already, and how can I implement the remedies in any case, and make my life better.

    Thank you very much Dhilip sir.
