When Saturn transits the Lunar Ist ( the First Sign from one's Moon Sign), the 12th & the 2nd, Elarata Saturn is caused.
This is the most dreaded phase in one's life.
Elarata Saturn manifests as vicious attacks on health and wealth. You will be subject to trouble through enemies and will suffer calumny. Health hazards manifest.
Dissipation of wealth indicated. ( Kurvanthi Pranasandeham Sthanabramsam Dhanakshayam ).
Your mind becomes a melting pot of mental turmoil. Saturn creates wilderness in the psyche, making you desperate at times. You may not get even proper rest.
Problems surface like a ten-headed Hydra. Once you try to solve one problem, another takes its place.
Mental peace and happiness make a strategic retreat. Saturn will bend you, not break you.
The Western scholars defined Life as full of thorns ( "Life is not a bed of roses"). The Eastern intellectuals defined it as a Vaitharani river, a macabre river whose flow is deathward. You will feel that they were right in defining life in such dolorous terms.
Elarata Saturn (commentaar: bekend onder Sade Sati periode) occurs in Three Phases:
Phase I - Dwadasa Saturn - This is when Saturn is in the 12th - Is dangerous but not as severe as Janma Saturn
Phase II - Janma Saturn - This is when Saturn is in the Lunar Asc ( This is severe )
Phase III - Dwitheeya Saturn - When Saturn is in the Second - The evil is lessened considerably but the Dosha persists.
On the positive side, you have to understand that the suffering which you undergo are merely wages and that Initiation is a process of intensive culture and accelerated evolution. Many lessons will be learnt during this phase. It is said that the wise recognise Negativity as an inevitable clearing process and maintain equanimity.
You can chant the following sloka to ward off the negative radiation of Elarata Saturn.

Naturopathy averrs that Fasting is the best Medicine ( Lankhanam Paramoushadham ). According to Ayurveda, the Annarasa in the body, during fasting, is converted into the Seven Gross Dhathus ( the seven tissue-elements). One of the Fivefold Worship in Naturopathy is Akashopasana, which is fasting. We overeat everyday with the result the digestive system has no rest. During fasting, the digestive system gets absolute rest. Overeating has been identified by Naturopathy as the main cause of disease.
Vara Puja is said to be the most effective remedy in Vedic Astrology.

Maha Mrithyunjaya Mantra
This mantra is heavily used to ward off Saturn's attacks and is heavily used during the malevolent Elarata Saturnine phase. Deze Mantra dient op Maandag uitgesproken te worden ter verering van Lord Shiva.

Chanting it 108 times is said to reduce Saturnine maleficence.
Chanting Mantras needs the utmost purity of Body, Mind and Soul. This is difficult to achieve during the Dark Age ( Kali Yuga ).Hence wearing of the appropriate Yantra is recommended as we cannot keep up the purity of Body, Mind & Self.
The Yantra is a silver or gold plate wherein the Mantra is inscribed and given after 10 days Puja by learned Brahmin scholars, who impart it with the necessary Pranic ( Positive ) Energy.
Wearing a Blue Sapphire is another remedy. Listening to Navagraha Shanti Mantras cassette, particularly the mantras of Saturn is another astrotherapeutic measure.
Sometimes, even Yantra may not be enough. If the affliction is severe, one has to go beyond Mantra and Yantra and go in for Havans. Mahamrityunjaya Havan and Saneeswara Havans are the 2 major Havans which are performed to offest the maleficence of Elarata Saturn. It has to be done with diligence, by bona fide Tantriks who have dedicated their life to Tantra and spirituality.
