The occasion of Shani Amavasya falls on the 18th of November this year. Lord Shani, the son of Sun Lord was born on this day. Astrologically, Shani represents the planet Saturn. November 18 is also Amavasya or the no moon night these two combinations make a powerful Yog.
Per Astrology, Sun blesses with a great career, whilst Shani's shubh drishti or the blessings he bestows upon us can turn rags to riches. However, Lord of the planet Saturn is also the god of Justice and his blessings are only for those who are righteous.
Lord Shani was born to Lord Sun and Chhaya, who was a shadow double of Surya Dev's wife. Three children were born to him from Chhaya - Manu, Shani and Tapti. Chhaya did rigorous penance to please God Shiva, when Lord Shani was in her womb.
She sat in the scorching heat of the Sun in devotion to Shiva. Whilst she sat in meditation, Shani was bedazzled with the cosmic energies and Shiva's blessings. He grew to be an ardent Shiva devotee. Also, he turned black in the womb due to his mother sitting under the scorching heat of the Sun.
When Shani was born, he was born black because of so much exposure of Chhaya's womb while she sat in meditation to please Shiva. Lord Sun couldn't look at his own child without disgust. His actions displeased Shani and his one look at his own father turned him black too.
Surya dev repented for his deeds, later. He worshipped Shiva without fail and Shiva described him why was Lord Shani black in appearance. Surya was delighted to know the truth and gradually both father and the son grew closer and understood each other better.
Shani dev was nurtured in his mother's womb with the cosmic energy and constant remembrance of Shiva. He was an ardent devotee of Shiva since his childhood. Later, Shani dev became his disciple and gained all knowledge from the source of Universe itself. Shani's unfailing devotion pleased Shiva so much he blessed him as an important ruling planet and be a just distributor of Karma for people's deeds.
Whilst many view Lord Saturn as cruel and strict - he is truly very benevolent and a kind God. His unfailing stance for justice and fairness makes him a rigid God deity. He simply performs his duty and his kindness is such that it is believed he gives a lot of chances to people. Any phase when Lord Shani's eye is on you might be a very tough time to deal with, but in truth, you will come out a warrior and a strong person.
If you feel that Shani has his eye on you and you want to turn it to him bestowing his kind blessings upon you, here are five simple things you can do to remove all obstacles in your career. Keep scrolling to know more
