Sade Sati or Elinati Shani

Moon moves at 2.5 days per sign while Saturn moves at 2.5 years per sign. If Moon is in ‘z’ sign at the time of your birth and currently if Shani is entering 12th sign with respect to the position ’z’, it is the beginning of the elinati Shani period of your life and ends when Shani leaves the 2nd sign with respect to ‘z’ and this takes 7.5 years of time.
