SHANI JAYANTI / SHANI AMAVASYA :

.

.

Shani Amavasya or Shani Jayanti is celebration on the Amavasya tithi (day) of Jyeshta month in the Hindu Lunar Calender. This year Shani Jayanti / Amavasya is falling on the 22nd of May 2020. The day is celebrated as the birth day of Shani dev…

Mythological Story: 

.

.

Shani dev was the son of Lord Surya (Sun) and Devi Chaya ( she was the shadow of  Sun’s wife Sandhya. Sandhya was a devoted wife and bore three children (Vaivasvata Manu, Yama and Yami) to Lord Surya but could not handle the scorching heat of Surya. Sandhya wanted to do penance to expiate the excessive heat from her body due to Lord Surya and therefore creates a shadow of her Chaya and asked her to be in the palace in her absence. Sandhya then goes to her fathers place i.e. Lord Daksha’s place but hearing her story, Daksha asks her to go back to Lord Surya. She leaves her fathers house and takes the form of a horse and goes to the jungle to do her penance.

Back in the palace , Chaya who lives as Sandhya gives birth to three children  ( Manu, Shani and Tapti)… Chaya was an ardent disciple of Lord Shiva and often would do prayers of Lord Shiva without food, water in the scorching heat. As a result of this , the color of  Shani’s body turned black in the womb. After Shani Dev is borne,  Lord Surya sees him and keeps doubting his parentage because of his color. Lord Surya would often insult his wife Chaya in front of Shani Dev and this would not go well with Lord Shani. The onslaught of insults puts Lord Shani in a rage an the curses his father to turn black…With Sun turning dark, there is darkness all around the universe.. Lord Shiva then appears in front of them and explains what took place and why the color of Shani Dev is black.

Lord Surya then apologizes to his wife and Shani but the scars remain. Due to this lack of trust and respect for each other, it is said that Lord Shani ( ruler of Saturn)  and Lord Surya ( Ruler of Sun)  do not get along with each other.

Lord of Divine judgement Shani Dev’s and his lame leg : 

.

.

Devi Chaya, the mother of Shani dev was an ardent disciple of lord Shiva. one day while offering her prayers , Shani dev got hungry and started asking for food from his mother Chaya. Devi Chaya told him to wait till she completes her prayers but the hanger pangs were high and Shani dev got angry at his mother and hit her with his leg.

Devi Chaya was in her meditative state and her Electrifying energies block Shani Dev’s leg and his leg becomes dysfunctional. Looking at his leg he realizes his mistake and seeks forgiveness from his Mother and Lord Shiva…

After a lot of penance , Shani Dev is blessed by Lord Shiva , his Guru ; who then blesses him with Divine wisdom and judgement to understand any situation deeply and then make a judgement. By the blessings of Lord Shiva, Shani Dev is also given the responsibility of being the Lord of Divine Judgement…

.

Shani dev further asserts that anyone who respects women and takes care of their mother will never be cursed by Shani Dev’s sight / Drishti. ..

.

.

SHANI SAADESAATI / DHAIYYA: 

.

.

If you have been under the impact of Saturn Sadesaati or Saturn Dhaiyya then this is a great day to appease Lord Shani and expiate negative aspects of Saturn.  Saturn is transiting in its own sign of Capricorn but is in retrograde movement at the moment .

.

.

The zodiac signs or Moon Rashi’s that will be most impacted in this year are Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius , Taurus, Gemini, Virgo and Libra. People born under the influence of these moon signs should take extra measures to appease Shani Dev in this year.
