Shani Amavasya, also known as Shani Jayanti, commemorates the birth of Lord Shani (Saturn).

Lord Shani is a deity who requires no introduction. However, he is often misunderstood. Many people fear him due to his reputation for delivering the consequences of our past-life karma, whether they are good or bad, with absolute fairness and strictness.

Saturn, the Karmic Imprint:

Lord Shani, also known as Saturn, is revered as the Lord of Karma. The stark truth is that we are born to settle our karmic debts, but we often lose sight of this purpose and become overly attached to worldly matters. In such instances, Saturn intervenes to awaken and shake us from our slumber. Although Saturn’s approach may not be pleasant, it is undeniably effective in fulfilling its duty.

3 Powerful Remedies for Saturn on Shani Jayanti

1. Honor the Sun God in the morning by reciting your personal Aditya mantra based on the placement of Sun in your birth chart, For example – If your Sun is in Leo, it is Indra Aditya and the mantra is Om Ghrini Indra Aditya. You can use the align27 app to find your Aditya mantra.

Why should you do this?

Saturn represents darkness, while the Sun embodies light. When light appears, darkness dissipates. Thus, the Sun is the perfect antidote to Saturn’s influence, making it the most powerful way to mitigate Saturn’s challenges in your chart.

To strengthen the Sun in your birth chart, we honor one of the 12 Adityas based on the Sun’s placement. Each of the 12 Adityas governs a specific zodiac sign, providing the essential resources and energies associated with that sign. By honoring the appropriate Aditya, we harness the positive energies of the Sun to balance and enhance your astrological profile.

2. Listen to Sri Rudram (Namakam and Chamakam).

Why should you do this?

Lord Shiva embodies the highest form of divine energy, representing the Sun. Sri Rudram, one of the most powerful shlokas from the Vedas, is a profound way to honor Lord Shiva and seek His guidance for both material and spiritual aspects of our lives.

3. Write the mantra connected to Saturn in your birth chart based on the Nakshatra (Lunar Mansion) Pada (part) where it is placed. You can write the mantra 27 times on your sacred notebook dedicated to mantra writing.

Why should you do this?

The zodiac is divided into 27 Nakshatras, each of which is divided into 4 parts (Padas). There are 108 mantras for Saturn, each linked to a specific Nakshatra Pada. By identifying the correct mantra based on Saturn’s placement in your birth chart and writing it you honor Saturn in the most personalized way possible. That name of Saturn holds a lot of significance for you based on Saturn’s placement in your birth chart.
