Kathmandu: The transit of Saturn through the 12th 1st and 2nd houses from the Moon is known as Sade-Sati Dasa. During this transit Saturn gives bad results to the native.

If the said houses contain more than 30 bindus each, the person suffers less troubles, miseries, etc., and he obtains good results on a very large scale, depending on the number of bindus in the said houses.
If these three houses contain less than 25 bindus each, the person suffers. miseries, etc., on a very large scale. If they contain mixed number of bindus, there are mixed results. When one of the three houses contains very few bindus as compared to the remaining two houses, the person suffers heavily during the transit of Saturn through that house.
If one of the said three houses contains more bindus (30 or over) than the other two houses, transit of Saturn through that house will give good results. miseries, etc., on a very large scale. If they contain mixed number of bindus, there are mixed results. When one of the three houses contains very few bindus as compared to the remaining two houses, the person suffers heavily during the transit of Saturn through that house.
If one of the said three houses contains more bindus (30 or over) than the other two houses, transit of Saturn through that house will give good results.
In the same way Saturn's transit through the 4th house and the 8ih house from the Moon may be judged.
Thus, it would be observed from the above that Sade-Sate effects, good or bad, are correlated with the number of bindus in the respective houses from the Moon.
