In year 2017 (1939 Hemalambi) Shani Jayanti is marked on Thursday 25 May 2017. Shani Jayanti is marked as birth anniversary of Lord Shani. Shani Jayanti is also known as Shani Amavasya. Lord Shani is son of Lord Surya and rules planet Saturn and Saturdays. It is believed that Lord Shani believes in fair justice and if appeased blesses His devotee with good luck and fortune.

Inner self discipline is recommended to pass through this time of opposites and challenges.
