The typical transit of Saturn in a given Rasi ( house it occupies ) causes mental burns in people. Need not be afraid of.
I am a software professional, and I take the analytical approach. With 100's of charts that I have seen, with Saturn's work (!), I have come to a conclusion of theory.
Sani Dasa and it effects for 19 years
Of course, the bad / worse period would be less torturing, if you are having Saturn in 4th or 8th, which means that, the monetary blessings that Saturn blesses with, and also if helped with Venus ( not in this particular transit ) the effects will be nullified.
That is depicted in my post, and I have advised a lot of people. I look at Saturn Maha Dasa only. and split the periods, as per the formula that I have come up with (over 19 years).
So - there are enough literature on the particular Saturn transit effects, that you might have seen in http://astrologyayurveda.blogspot.com maintained by my pal Ramesh.
Please do send me the details, and I shall provide you the readings as I see it. ( for specific questions, do ask! )
Also note that - the date of birth, place ( correct co ordinates ) and time and some incidents like marriage, jobs, or the last job change would be needed along with the current location.
Disclaimer : Astrology is the matter here ( with usual riders ) and I would charge for the efforts, that would go to a meaningful cause.
