Please note that during Ashtama Sani transition and Ashtama Shani phase in one’s horoscope there are many fraudsters who appear in the guise of priests and astrologers offering to conduct various pujas and homas to remove evil and bad luck. Stay away from such people. Please don’t invest money in unnecessary pujas and rituals.
Please note that one should not give undue importance to astrology. Ups and downs are part of life. Although Shani is portrayed as a trouble maker – he is said to be the provider of the fruits of our deeds and actions. All depends on what type of Karma you perform. Good Karma is always rewarded.
Belief in that supreme power plus determination, hard work and trust in your abilities can override any Ashtama Sani.
