According to Astrology, Shani hodls four crucial portfolios including Rajyadhipathi. Kuja, the major opponent of Shani, holds two Adhipatyas. Ravi, Chandra, Shukra holds one Adhipatya each but Budha and Guru do not hold any Adhipatya this year. Kuja holds the positions of Sasyadhipathi and Neerasadhipathi. Sun, who positioned as Mantri, is also an enemy to Raja. Dhanyadhipathi Chandra is also an internal opponent for Raja. All the Adhipatis are directly or indirectly opposing the position of Raja (Shani).
