This is prescribed for those under the influence of Dasha-Sandhi, which stands for the person's planetary alignment, during one MahaDasha to another; especially when the last six months of the planet Shukra and the first six months of the Sun's influence is in that period. Many individuals suffer from negative afflictions influenced by outside sources. These may result in negative afflictions, ill health, accident-prone-life and such misfortunes. Many also associate influence of sorcery and black magic to be highest in these weak periods. In these times, performing the sacred Shukraditya Shanti, or the Shukra Aaditya Shanthi, will remove all ill-effects of the bad periods that one may be facing.
