Lord Shani Bhagawan is moving again soon in a few months . Outside of predictions which is not the point of this post , here are some ways to please him.
First seek forgiveness for any transgressions done knowingly or unknowingly. Of Surya Devas 2 Sons, 1 Judges us at death ( Yamaraj ) while the other judges us while we live ( Shani Dev ) .
Actually Shani Dev is the more benevolent of the 2, preferring for us to face our retributions here itself ( where reduction of sentence , lowering of intensity is possible ) , as opposed to when we meet his brother later.
Never miss Shani Pradosha ( the Pradosha that happens on a Saturday ) , participate in the Siva Pradosha Puja and worship Shani Dev after. Next one Is November 5, 2022, Saturday.
Read the Shani Mahatmya ( of King Vikramaditya ) which ends with “just as Lord Shanidev showed mercy on Vikramaditya, we pray that he bestows the same mercy on all who read or listen to this story”.
Reciting it every Saturday at a temple of Shani Dev is even better.
( Do it for 9 continuous weeks at least ).
Devatas that are mentioned to deal with and reduce intensity of negative aspects of Shani Deva include Ganapati , Bhairava , Sudarshana and Hanuman ji. Refer to a proper Jyotisha for specific remedies .
( Don’t keep changing Jyotishas, stick to one. Opening your Karmic Chart to multiple people is like having various hands inside an intricate heart surgery ).
Below is a Stotram to propitiate Shani Deva:
by King Dasaratha from the Skanda Purana

tvayā vilokitā: sarve nāśaṃyānti samūlata:।।
prasādam kuru me deva varārho’hamupāgata।
evaṃ stutastadā saurirgraharājo mahābala:।।
