Strength: When the Sun and the Moon occupy Makara (capricorn), Kumbha (aquarius)
or Tula (libra) Rasi or the full moon is associated with any of the stars,
viz. Chitra, Swati, Revati—Sani is strong. Sani signifies obstacles,
impediments, and sorrow or miseries, it afflicts the house where it is posited
and the native's miseries and sorrows from that house are indicated. A native
cannot be a true ascetic unless Sani is strong and favourable. The planet
is a gruelling tester of strength and character. It is a blessing in disguise.
Sani melts away the dress in man through pain and suffering and by a process
of fiery baptism, builds up the native, of course if Sani is favourable. If
unfavourable he brands the native with inevitable disaster and doom—even
though all other planets might contrive to make him apparently prosperous
and successful. He is wrath of God Narayan or rather sorrow of God, imparted
to man, made as He is in His image.
