Grahas are the major players of Astrology and one of the most prior celestial beings is “SHANI”. There are many rumors found for this participant of Astrology, but very few people have got the exact knowledge of this GRAHA. Shani Dev isembodied in the planet Saturn of our Solar System and is the Lord of Saturday. The word Shani is originated from the word Śanayē Kramati Saḥ means who moves slowly as Saturn takes long time that is almost 30 years to revolve around the sun.
