Saturn Mahadasha starts is for the19 years. It is the most challenging or difficult period of a person’s life. The native feels a continuous decline in health, professional and interpersonal relationships. No matter how hard the person might try, no matter how much effort he puts in, things will not go in his favor. The native feels insulted and humiliated. He is not able to achieve anything he sets his mind to. The native is intelligent, sharp and has everything in the world to be successful, but the circumstances are so negative that the native cannot make any progress.

Mahadasha is an important period of time when certain planets are in certain signs and houses of a horoscope. These periods can last anywhere between 2-7 years. The period of time as per astrology when we see a planet in its mahadasha is said to cause changes in a person’s life and often times brings up new opportunities. Therefore, when Saturn mahadasha comes, we see how the worst of people turn good and toil hard to achieve their goals. The period can be very tough for people, who are under its influence. In normal life, when we see bad people turn into good, we call it a miracle. In astrology, we call it mahadasha of planet Saturn.

What happens when Saturn Mahadasha starts? Saturn is generally considered a malefic planet. It rules over delays, obstruction, discipline, limitations, career and structure. Depending on the sign it occupies in a chart and the house and sign it occupies in the Mahadasha, it can bring about positive or negative results. For example, if Saturn occupies the 10th house in a horoscope and the 10th house is governed by the sign Libra, then Saturn will bring about career related problems and delays. On the other hand, if the 10th house is governed by the sign of Aries, then Saturn will bring fortune to the individual.
