Dhaiya of Shani in Jyotish
By: - Dr.A.S.Kalra Astrologer
Dhaiya of Shani (Jyotish): -Dhaiya word is derived from 'Dhaai' or 2.5, which means a period of '2.5 years'. A person or his chandra rashi is said to be under the influence of Dhaiya if the Shani in gochar (or present tense) is transitting through either 4th or 8th zodiac from his chandra rashi. As Shani takes 2.5 years in transitting through a zodiac, this period is termed as Dhaiya of Shani.
