Shani Amavasya is a No Moon day which falls on Shanivar, Saturday. In 2013, Shani Amavasya date is June 8. This year, it comes only once.
As it is falls on Shani Jayanti day, 2013 Amavasya, has great significance. It falls on Jyeshta Amavasya as per North Indian Hindi calendar and Vaishakha Amavasya in Amavasyant calendars followed in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.
This Shani Amavasya falls on Rohini Nakshatra and Vrishabh Rashi. It gives bad results for Karka Rashi. Vrishabha Rashi natives may get mixed (average) results. It would be a testing time for Tula Rashi and Dhanu Rashi natives as this Amavasya is happening in the Mrityu Sthana and Rog Sthana for them respectively. For Vrischika Rashi also, it is not a good period.
Shani Shinganapur in Maharashtra, Sri Shaneshwara temple at Neural in Mumbai, Shanidham at Fatehpur Beri at Mehrauli area in New Delhi, Mandapalli Shani Temple in East Godavari district of AP (Mandheshwara Swamy Temple), and Shani Temple at Vargal near Hyderabad in Medak district of AP are some of the best temples to offer Shani Puja on Shani Amavasya.
Shani Dosha Nivarana Puja, Shani Japam, Shani Homam, and Shani Thailabhishekam are the popular pujas to be held on Shani Amavasya.
