Well placed Saturn in a horoscope makes a person successful in career, healthy, surrounds him with positive vibrations, grants uninterrupted success, fulfillment of desires, peace and prosperity. It endows one with good luck, fame, name, profits, and peace.

Shani Graha or Planet Saturn should be propitiated to gain positive results and blessings from the planet through the performance of remedial measures.
Power of Shani Graha Homam
A homa to the Planet Saturn has the power to remove the astrological defects or doshas (impurities) in the horoscope caused due to badly placed Saturn. His worship in fire is powerful to remove physical sickness and mental worries and clear obstacles in one`s material and spiritual life.
