Shani Jayanti or birth anniversary of the Lord Shani is celebrated on the New Moon or No Moon Day of Jyeshtha month of the Hindu calendar. The son of Lord Surya and Chhaya, hence he is also known as Chayya-Putra, Lord Shani also rules the planet Saturn and a day of the week which is Saturday. The festival is also known as Shani Amavasya with regards to the Hindu calendar. It is said that Lord Shani was born on Jyeshtha Amavasya and every year, people worship Lord Shani on this day to welcome prosperity in their life.

He is the greatest mentor and well-wisher for the righteous. He is a strict punisher for those who follow the path of betrayal, backstabbing, unjust revenge and evil. Lord Shani is considered to be the strongest maleficus and a frowning mentor. Saturn represents efforts, endeavour, patience, justice and endurance. Lord Shani may bring restrictions and misfortunes. However, a well-placed Shani in the horoscope stands for a prosperous career, positive energy and healthy life
