Saturn is known as Shani Deva in Vedic Astrology and is one of the nine major astronomical bodies (Navagraha). According to the Hindu scriptures, Saturn (Shani) is the son of Sun (Lord Surya) and Shadow (Chayya).

The planet Saturn is also called the “tough task giver”. It works on the principle of carrot and stick. If the native does good, Saturn will pay off him/her generously. On the other hand, if the native indulges in unrighteous karma, Saturn will punish them accordingly.
