Transit results for shani in makara on your rasi
The idol was sculpted by Shri Subbayya Sthapati of Madurai and his eight associates  after relentless  and arduous work for about two years. The 20 feet imposing black monolithic rock idol weighing roughly  nine tons was established by Shri Thakur Suryapratap Singh and his three sons at Yerdhanur Village, Medak District, Telangana.
In mundane astrology, shani represents democracy, poor and downtrodden, in particular. Public unrest lock outs, calamities like famines, floods and earth quakes, hardship, scarcities and misery. Chronic ailments, cancer, tuberculosis, rheumtic diseases are seen when shani is adverse. Makara is the sign which rules landscapes, change of existing system for better or worse, spirituality and unrelenting reprisals. Makara is the 7th from birth rasi in the foundation chart. Saptama shani causes rifts with opposition but things will not go out of control, shani transits in his own sign. The government is piqued by the larger masses demanding more equality and justice. Religion and patriotism are no more vital but the basic needs, taxes, unemployment would make the masses take to the streets.  There will be labor unrest too.  Shani in his astakavarga as the least strength with only one bindu. The esteem of the ruling party and the country goes up in the air.  Similar is the condition with the opposition - this transit restricts progress of the opposition parties.  Only the hardcore followers and many party offices face the closure. Within the BJP also, many people begin to express moroseness.  The main feature of the transit is long drawn animosity between opposition and ruling parties as well as neighboring countries. There will not be any direct confrontation but long drawn cold war, it is like a land dispute.  Shani transits  over yasha saham, putra saham and prasava sahams in the foundation chart.  This results in troublesome situations for children and intellectuals. There will be increase of chronic diseases like pulmonary disorders, cancer, tuberculosis, muscular disorders as well as mental ailments. Landslides, building collapses and earth quakes will escalate. As shani transits in own sign, timely measures by the government will reduce the eventualities.
During the transit of shani in makara rasi, many path-breakers were born like, Lal Bahadur Shastri, 2nd Prime Minister of India (02.10.1904), J. R. D. Tata business tycoon who became India's first licensed pilot (29.07.1904), Meena Kumari, actress (01.08.1932) U. R. Ananthamurthy, writer and critic (21.12.1932) - (I have love and hate relationship with this man!),  Amartya Sen, economist and Nobel laureate (03.11.1932) and Dhirubhai Ambani, business tycoon (28.12.1932). Transit in makara also witnessed passing away of gigantic personalities like Swami Vivekananda, chief disciple of Sri Ramakrishna (my gurudev!). There were deplorable incidents like assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, former Prime Minister (21.05.1991) and consequent restoration of Congress government at the centre, massive riots between two groups in Mumbai (16.05.1932). Events with everlasting effects like liberation of Goa and other Portuguese colonies (19.12.1961) and Sino-India war (10.10.1962) and of late, demolition of a structure in Ayodhya (06.12.1992) and subsequent Hindu renaissance.
The impact of shani's transit in makara rasi on various rasis is given below.  It is reassuring that shani transits in his own sign which diminishes the distress associated with the transit, for all the rasis. Remedial measures to shani will mainly reduce the delays, cure from cold and bone disorders and also reduce the adverse effects shani caused by his position, ownership and association in the chart. This opens the an avenue for remedial measures to mitigate the adverse affects, this time, the intensity of affliction to all the signs is less and you do not need elaborate shanti etc., Shani was about to enter Rohini nakshatra a bad star for King Dasaratha and he worshipped shani. Pleased with this, Shani did not bother King Dasaratha. Hence the Dasaratha krita shani stotra is considered an excellent remedy. Some of other mantras are also given here:
शनि नमस्कार श्लोकः >> नीलांजन समाभासं रविपुत्रं यमाग्रजं। छायामार्तांड संभूतं तं नमामि शनैश्चरं॥
शनि पीडाहर स्तॊत्रं: >> सूर्यपुत्रो धीर्घदेहो विशालाक्ष शिवप्रियः। धीर्घाचारः प्रसन्नात्म पीडां हरतु मे शनिः॥
शनि गायत्री मंत्रः >> ओं शनैश्चराय विद्महे छायापुत्राय धीमही। तन्नो मंदः प्रचोदयात्॥
शनि बीज मंत्रः >> ओं प्रां प्रीं प्रौं सः शनैश्चराय नमः॥ 

For other mantras for shani like Kavacha, Mantra, Avanana mantra, Attottara Shatanamali and Asttottara Shatanama stotra are also available in the site. More Some astrologers notably in Deccan prescribe gem stones/metals like blue sapphire, amethyst, iron, lead, steel and antimony as remedial measure for adverse transit. This is not as per the precepts of Hindu astrology - gem stones and metals are prescribed for benefic planets (anukoola grahas) only. I have observed that a person under adverse guru bhukti suffered most when he started wearing yellow sapphire. Lead a simple life and let your head rule over your heart. अनायासेन मरणं विनादैन्येन जीवनं। देहि मे कृपया शंभो त्वयि भक्तिं अचंचलं॥ "Lord Shambhu, give a serene death, a life not needing mercy of others and unwavering devotion in you".
Transit results of shani in makara for:
In the horoscope of Smt. Sonia Gandhi [former president and interim president sine die], this is the transit in astama position. There is grave concern to regain lost glory at some cost and there is warmth by the countrymen for all the ordeals due to her unfathomable love towards the State and the son. This is like selling an existing firm to make deposits for an upcoming firm! There is success as well as wastage. Shri Rahul Gandhi one time president of Congress, this is adverse transit in the second.  This is the time for marriage and setting up of family that State affairs for the most eligible young single man of India. Now, he has to make ratifications with his companions. He will pick a fellow country woman for his life partner and thereby makes a style statement to show his political convictions. During transit into kumbha, he is blessed with a tiny tot and his fortune as a ruler surges forward. He rightfully sees brighter days in his life. For the Prime Minister, shani transits favorably in 3rd promising a period of courage, workmanship and partnership.  He can not be intimidated of his rivals and friends in India and in other countries. He continues to reign as an undisputed monarch during this transit. During the transit in kumbha, after two and half years, he would prefer to step down; then the son raises in the north. Yet, the new government will be under his spell and shadow of Shri Narendra Modi for two to three years, until it hits a roadblock again which coincides with adverse transit of shani in ardastama position for Shri Rahul Gandhi.
