The Effect of Jupiter Gandanta from 31st October to 21 November 2019

The Gandanta is the position of the zodiac where two junction points of fire and water meet. Whereas the Nakshatra Gandanta is commonly known Dosa, arises when the Moon or any planet is positioned at the ending degree of the mercury Nakshatra ( From 26’00 to 30’00)  i.e, Revati, Aslesha, and Jyestha, and it is falling near the starting point  of Ketu’s Nakshatra (0 to 3’20) i.e., Ashvini, Magha and Moola.

They are very powerful points in giving soul revealing Karmic effects. In General meaning, Gand means a knot and Anta means the end so Gandanta means the knot fixed at the end.

Below are the degrees that have to be considered in Nakashtra Gandanta 

Degrees Rashi Nakshatra Amsha
26º00-30:00 Pisces Revati Pisces
0º00- 3º20 Aries Ashwini Aries
26º40-30º00 Cancer Ashlesha Pisces
0º00- 3º20 Leo Magha Aries
26º40-30º00 Scorpio Jyeshta Pisces
0º00- 3º20 Sagittarius Mula Aries

 

More detailed version: The #Gandanta of #Jupiter

Jupiter is going to be in #gandanta zone from #scorpio to #Sagittarius from October 30th onward to 9th of November 2019, till Jupiter reaches around 1 degree.these ending 1 degrees of Jupiter and beginning 1 degree of Jupiter is very careful for general well being but auspicious for pilgrimages, spiritual practices and holy dip in the sacred rivers.

Its the time of spiritual #transformation from all sorts of mundane and emotional Desires to live in a spiritual zone which resonates with the energy of Prakriti.Its the time when nature changes its natural energy to more higher plane, from earthy ( material, Budh) plane to ether ( Guru, Spiritual) , from water element to fire.

It will break all the knots of bondage from all the past life experiences where one has felt in Scorpio sign.it is a most difficult time for both jyestha and moola nakshatra born people, as they will experience the change most in their inner plane. the diety of Jyestha is Indra whose duty is to control on all the senses but due to arrogance of having controlled on senses native often self destroy them, being the nature of Indra and they live in luxurious life which they feel difficult to leave when transformation happens from water to fire element during the transit.

Same is the case with moola, nakshatra deity is Nirrti, gives an experience like death, pain, and suffering awakes one to live according to the natural laws. LordShip of Ketu shows one needs to get ready to accept the change of naturality. its a time to balance your self from self-destruction to #universal #conciousnes and need to practice silence, meditation and doing sacred practices as it will shake the inner soul with many physical and mundane issues.

Its the time to leave your all mundane desires and merge yourself with the nature and aspire for natural spiritual path desired by inner soul for higher consciousness .its the time when nature starts it’s natural churning process and demands its children’s to get align and merge with it as during gandanta process nature changes its element from water to fire, where water tries to off the fire and fire tries to evaporate the Apah( water) into small droplets, breaking into pieces.so nature demands one should leave all the mundane desires and burn your body for higher Tapasya .

It is never be considered as easy path as it creates many psychological and physical blocks that one needs to experience either it in a bodily, emotionally or mundane level plane changes, one needs to accept it in any case as it is the forceful changes given by the nature. As it is happening in #scorpio sign in #jyestha nakshatra, there will be churning of deep inner emotional and psychological changes where one feels emotionally shattered.

Those having any planet’s in jyestha they need to be careful wrt to any emotional activities as it will shake both materials as well as Their emotional level. when Jupiter reaches to #saggitarus,/mola nakshatra native feels like that he has experienced the forceful changes which native is not ready to accept it as mola signifies the root, to live in naturality, having lordship of Ketu which shows the ties of past karma or past lifestyle Where one is living in luxuries lifestyle in earthy plane having all sort of Mundane happiness has to give up.

This change is difficult for most of the materialistic people who were earlier enjoying the path of materials and feeling it’s happiness and one needs to live in the grass root of common life. people need to accept this spiritual change with complete openness and start practicing the spiritual rituals. one such easy way is to having dip in the holy river signifies by the zodiac sign given for Jupiter which we called as #Pushkaram celebrations and it include reverence of ancestors and spiritual discourses.during the pushkaram one should engage in activities such as snana (bath in the river), dāna (charity), japa (recitation of mantras), Archana and dhyana (meditation).

Here, The first 12 days when the Jupiter enters the zodiac sign and the last 12 days when it exits the zodiac sign are considered as most auspicious. When devotees take a dip in the sacred river is believed to erase all sins as per scriptural beliefs. The first twelve days are called as Adi Pushkaram, and the last twelve days are called as Anthya Pushkaram.

It is believed that during these twenty-four days, “Pushkar” ( Sthaan of Bramha) , imbued with the power to make any river holy, will travel with Jupiter as Jupiter moves from one Zodiac house to another. That’s the reason Planets that fall in the “Pushkara navamsa” or “Puskara Bhaga” of a birth chart are considered to be very beneficial and auspicious in Jyotish.

This year Tapti river is most auspicious for sacred dipping (Pushkaravahini). In Assam, the festival is celebrated on the banks of the Brahmaputra river. Tapti Pushkaravahini.so enjoys this sacred dipping in the Tapti river including all sorts of spiritual rituals to be done till the 16th of November 2019.

Does Science has proof of Vedic Sciences ? Scientific vs Non-Scientific Debate

There is a huge debate always going on in this scientific and non-scientific fraternity regarding our Vedic culture, rituals, and Shastras like Jyotish and other such micro spiritual sciences. The basic thing is non-believers are strongly in belief that what we see is true rest is false.

My question to them there are immense galaxies, stars, sun, and multiple universes exist in this super-spiritual world do they have seen by their own eyes or have they visited them or landed them ?? But still it is existing, do we need any proof? When things are present they are it doesn’t require any certification from any authorities.

As per Bhagavatam, there are 14 lokas of Jeevas existing, life is still there does anyone has seen? But still lokas are there and we are part of it. We live in bhuvaloka and it has existed.

Does anyone knows where comes Atma or soul goes in or out from the body ?? But still, it is the process life is following it. We take birth and then rebirth happens does anyone has seen it but still, it is happening.

So my point is the spiritual reality of this world is too huge, vast one cannot prove it by their facts, logics and scientific views. These things will exist and are existing from millions of years of the life cycle they don’t need any proof. This world of almighty is so huge and big, it is impossible for a common human being to imagine and experience it by their naked eyes and micro brain.

Life is hidden and it will remain hidden. Working in this universe is beyond human calculation and logic. So before questioning it, one should know it’s base and base should be learned from the Shastras that are visualized by the rishis and sages by Thier immense Tapasya for the human well being. The same is the case with the Jyotish majority of the scientific world claimed it as pseudoscience but in reality, it is a divine and spiritual science which needs divine vision to decode and understand it. Those who believe in their naked eyes is difficult for them to understand it’s complexity and mathematical computation. We are tiny particles in front of these Shastras knowledge.

Science has certain limitations, the more you explore, the more you practice more you can able to learn and understand it so it is in learning state but this universe is already existing before human science.

Today’s youth and non believers world behaves like a tiny microorganism that stays in a half-cut apple who believes that this is his only world as he doesn’t know what is present in below the apple and what is present in above the apple but in true reality, there are multiple apples in a apple tree where numerous microorganism lives in many apples and in many trees no one knows each other’s that they exist and there are huge forest of apple trees which again exist and no one knows to each other but certainly means human thinking is limited to its imagination and logic but this spiritual world was existing from many of millions of years. Same way karma, reincarnation, rebirth and cycle of life is working in an invisible pattern you don’t need to prove it.

Surya Sankranti and Effects of transit of Sun in Libra in October 2019

 

What is Surya Sankranti 

Surya Sankranti means entering of Sun from one sign to the another which signifies major changes in the course of the sun in the heaven for signifying major changes occurring in nature.

According to the Hindu Muhurata System, 16 ghatis or 6 hours 24 minutes before or after the Solar Ingress (Surya Sankranti) which falls on every month in different signs should be avoided for starting any new work, as in Hindu Panchanga system it is known for surya sankramana, When Sun god travels to different zodiac signs of the Brahmanda corresponding with different regions of the earth for changing seasons or welcoming new change in nature or bringing change in weather systems and also invoking new energies linked with the signs in the form of an electromagnetic impulses which directly hits the body.

Its the phase when solar energies are immensely powerful for bringing change in nature which are not harmonical for human (Body is not capable to adapt solar energies) well being or for beginning of any new works, as per Hindu Panchanga but it is considered as good for worshiping and doing certain spiritual and religious rituals especially worshiping of different shiva forms (Rudra; as Surya is karka of Aatma and the Pratayadi Devta of the Surya is Shiva. Surya gives vitality and strength to both the Soul and body and also works for purification of both) or one can do meditate with nature to get align with electromagnetic vibrations of the solar energies which we get from both the sun and the sign ( Sign is a combination of stars- source of energies). Solar ingress in zodiac sign marks for the beginning of the change in nature and few hours before and after are immensely powerful for mantra Jaap , Worshiping and certain spiritual rites as they do the work of purification of your Atma and Jeeva shudhi.

Sankranti falls on Monday or Sunday should be chosen for Jal Abhishek for Atma, Shareera and Mana shudhi to discharge your negative electrical charge or ions from the body. This is the reason why our Maharishis were so scientific and sync with nature for the formation of any new principals of Jyotish.

Impact of  Sun Transit on Libra ( Tula Surya Sankranti ) on India and general mass.

With the ingress of Surya Sankranti on Tula Rashi, the winter season has triggered or initiated which indicates that the sun has moved toward the southern sphere of the earth which we in the Vedic period called as dakashinayan period of Surya or Sharad Sampat period. As this Surya Sankranti triggered on the conjunction of Vara of Thursday – Friday around midnight from 11 pm to 1 am in Chitra nakshatra it is called as Mandakini Sankranti , it will give medium results and there will be happiness around kingdom and people those are living in it ( people those are living in western states and the globe) . This Sankranti falls on the Chitra nakshatra so people who are living around Karnataka, Bangalore, western states of India, eastern states and those of northern states will experience rainfall and good weather. As sun has conjugated with mercury and Venus, Mars is falling in 12th from it and Jupiter is falling in 2nd it northern hemisphere and northern states of India will experience cold waves, early snowfall and rainfall and weather will be good from now onward and it will trigger early winter in northern hemisphere and there are many chances that northern states of India those are living close to hills and mountain will experience early snowfall . As this Surya Sankranti triggered in night time after the sunset it will be considered as good it will favour ruling nation and Kingdom, it will restrict all sort of anti-national activities and people those are doing activities against the nation will be punished or get sentenced. It will control all the anti-national social activities and many of those people will experience sentences soon. As this Sankranti ingressed on libra sign and rainfall, the storm has triggered in northern states there are many chances that north of India will experience excessive rainfall in the winter season, there will be chances of any incident with respect to fire, bomb blast and chances of loss on Monterey gains of people living in the north.

If we look out the panchang during Tula Sankranti balava karna was rising it indicates as slept Sankranti and it is considered as good for weather and vegetables, it will increase the production and trade of vegetables, fruits and paddy. All eatables natural products prices will get stable and will be easily available in the market.

Balava vehicle is lion, and it indicates revolt creating political leaders those who keep on opposing the ruling party policies and procedures, the direction is west and it impacts the younger teenage girls, will create hurdles in Students those are going in school and collages. As Surya transited in Dahan Nadi in Chitra nakshatra ruling lord is Mangal so the possibility of fire incident will be possible.

For general mass one should do meditation, worship lord Shiva Mrityunjaya form to get a blissful and happy life, as Surya Sankranti shows the period of transition and filtering the soul silence, meditation and worshipping is must for the whole day.

Mercury Retrogression and Effect on Stock Market and Commodities trading ( 31st October to 21st November 2019)

Mercury Retrogression and Effect on Stock Market and Commodities trading ( 31st October to 21st November 2019)

Introduction and General Results

Usually Mercury Retrograde happens in a year for 3 or 4 times and this year it is happening 3 times. According to past observations, one might do wrong choices during a retrogression period. Due to retrogression, it slows down the mental processing of every individual’s having weak mercury placed in the chart but if we see the Mundane trends it used to give volatile results in economical and Stock market trading trends. What basically happens in mercury retrogression is mercury reaches very closer to the earth and it generally appears like moving in the backward direction as seen from the earth’s perception and appears to transit in retrograde motion. But as seen in Hypo theoretical results it used to give fast vibrational effects on the mental processing of the people. Planets like Mercury and Moon has stronger impact on our mind during their Retrogression, Waxing and Waning cycles as they affect our neurotransmitters at greater level and one of its major effect is on variation’s in the Hormonal level of the body i.e. effect on Serotonin Mood neurotransmitters   which inversely changes one psychology and mood patterns which directly affects the one decision making and one might do wrong choices in the communication channel affecting ones vocal, Speech, thinking and selection power and result will be wrong selection of electronic devices those are malfunctional in nature and sometimes one takes decisions in hurry. The reason being during retrogression mercury Chesta Bala gets increases at a much faster level and it vibrates or accelerates with greater speed and one wants to do things at a much faster rate or sometimes one wants to utilize his brain functionality at pacer rate so that one can accomplish multitasking.

If we see the generalized traits of Mercury it represents our mental and communicative life processes and has rulership of every sort of communication i.e spoken, written, paper documentation or internet data transmission and everything is controlled by the human brain. As it deals with human intellect and communication matters and it acquires the nature of the planet and quality of planet in conjunction, aspects or having any sort of connection. It is the prime planets seen for cash flow in the market, commerce, and trade. Another Reason is mercury is the closest planet to the sun so it has maximum quality of the sun like brilliant intellect and reasoning power. It has a strong impact on the reasoning, analytical mind, and gathering and sorting of all facts and figures.

Whenever it slows down in transits, it affects the changes in the market prices which cause wild fluctuations in the stock market. Whenever Mercury transits in between the conjunction of 2 signs during retrograde motion, it will be born to give deep dire aspiration for doing your things again and again till you achieve its perfection and many a time it invokes you to  replan your all activities which one started in direct motion in some sort of confusions and doubts. Things could be anything related to either your personal or business relationship matters, planning communications for emails, documentation, calculations, tax filing, booking tickets, payments, etc. One used to get deep effects in all sorts of activities related to communications.

Retrogression makes one very intelligent at one time and also one does sometimes foolish acts. Because of this people often talk so much nonsense and they lose respect. When it is stationary motion in transit chart over natal planets people can have short term memory losses, one loses power to think and act in the right way and often one argues a lot without any logic, facts, and reasoning. Later native repents a lot, sometimes unable to remember answers during examination but recollect them later, and also shouts when cannot debate.
Speech is signified by Mercury in Vedic Astrology.

During Retrogression, one might having extraordinary Intuition and should try to do things with patience, a calm and composed way. One should try to remain flexible, avoid signing contracts, documents, Purchasing electronic devices, etc. One should do review all projects and plans but should proceed till it becomes direct for any final decision making.

Impact of Retrogression (31st October to 21st November 2019) on Stock Market

 

Mercury has a strong impact on the stock market, whenever it becomes retrograde market becomes either volatile or becomes bearish. A similar effect has been seen when the mercury reaches the state of combustion with the Sun. It became bullish when it is conjugate with Rahu or Rahu is in trine to the mercury. Market becomes bearish when it gets conjugate with Ketu or Ketu is in trine to the Mercury in transit chart. It has been also seen that it become volatile when mercury changes its Navamsa sign or it is with beneficial planets in Navamsa.

 

Current State

Mercury retrograded on 31st of October around 9:04:35 Sec over Scorpio sign, whereas it was in Stationary direct state from 2 pm Onward on same day till 9:04 pm it was in direct Stationary state. As Mercury gets retrograde on 31st of October over Visakha nakshatra and Nakashtra lord Jupiter was with Mercury, Venus and Moon and it was also in the Amsa of Leo with Mars and Venus, aspected by the amsa lord Sun over the sign of Scorpio in transit chart. It will give strong beneficial results on the stock market for the day trading. As it has been observed that whenever mercury gets retrograde with the conjunction of beneficial planets it has given good results in the stock market and trading sector. As mercury act very volatile during retrogression, sometimes gain and sometimes lost over the period. If we look at the Sensex for 31st October 2019, Sensex ends at 77 pts up at 40,129, Nifty ends at 11,881.

If we look out the Nov 1 trend of Sensex, Market ended at a flat rate and Sensex adds 36 pts, Nifty at 11,900. It was a very marginal change we have seen after the retrogression which clearly shows there will be a slowdown in the market trends as soon after it becomes retrograde.

The Market trend will change when Jupiter moves to Sagittarius sign with Ketu and Saturn and same day Mercury will moves to cancer sign in Navamsa sign that clearly indicating market will getting a drop from 5th of November onward. As Jupiter will be over the fire sign of Dhanu over Moola Nakashtra that has given negative results in the past events. We can see a drop in the prices of Gold when Jupiter will moves to Dhanu sign being aspected by the Rahu and involved with Ketu and Saturn at the same time it will have an aspect of Mars too and the sun will be debilitation which defiantly gives a drop in the prices of gold. Jupiter will be over the Navamsa of Aries so it will give bullish trends in the share market for the following commodities i.e Silver, Textile, Fabrics, Jute, Sugar, and cotton will see a strong rise in the prices as it will be aspected by Venus, Saturn, and Moon. Though aspect of Saturn on Navamsa of Jupiter will slow down the prices of commodities in steel industries.  During this time, Mercury will move to Libra sign with Sun around 9 degrees of orbital distance which will give a strong impact on the share market. From the 8th of November 2019, it will get combusted due to close proximity with Sun till the 17th of November 2019. Which will again give downfall in the market till it is in the combusted state but it will give rise in the pricing of FMCG products. In the later part of November 2019, Mercury will be conjunct with Mars in Libra which will give rise in the production and price of the cotton, Kappas, Sut, Urad, Moong, gives good growth in all food products and also give boost in the pricing of all metals, Jute, Paat, Baardana, Jaggery, Sugar, nuts,  wheat and all eatable products made by grains . As soon as it will move in the sign of Libra it will try to stabilize the prices of gold and silver products but due to weak Sun and Jupiter, it can give normal stabilization of the metal commodities.

When Mercury will be retrograde in Libra it will lead to a lack of judgment, errors and miscalculations and Mars being conjunct with it will promote rebels, perverts as celebrities, and problems in couple relationships.

Currently #Mercury is right now #retrograde in Scorpio sign in #visakha

nakshatra, there will be growth in the production of #jaggery#sugar, and #alsi,  #seasome oil Will see a drop in prices. Later when the mercury will move to #libra sign in direct state there will be rapid growth in the pricing of #gold & #silver that which will happen due to weak Jupiter and sun. Currently, mercury is in watery signs and it has been seen that in Scorpio sign it used to gives a short term of bullish trend during its stays in the first 15 degrees. So till mercury is retrograde in first 3.20″ degree over Visakha nakshatra it will give hike in price over major food commodities but as soon as it moves to Libra sign in retrogression it will give some sort of ambiguity in pricing of metal commodities and also sets bearish trends for short span of time till it is retrograde in libra which will inversely affect the trade, share, and local market because of this businessmen will have some sort of fear for market slowness and it’s bearish trend. when mercury will get direct in libra sign there will be rapid growth in the production and pricing of #grhat, #sugar, #alsi including gold, cotton jute, and sugar and also all sort of herbs will see hike in #market and when mercury moves to Scorpio over Visakha and Anuradha nakshatra within first 15 degrees it will set bearish trend in the pricing of the commodities and it will give high trends for settlement of prices for wheat, rice, barley, pulses, gold, silk, books, stationary, television, theater’s, industrial units, insurance companies, advertisement, chemical, drug manufacturers, agriculture industries, bankers speculators and share Market and later when it moves over Anuradha it will boost the prices of Rice, grams, pulses coarse grains, coconut dates, jaggery , groundnuts,. chemicals, skin and hides, coal, cottonseed, woolen article’s, corporation, labor units, leather goods, and steel industries.

The Greatness of Saturn Part 2 – How Gravitational and Magnetic field effects human being

Effects of Gravitational and Magnetic field based on Vedas and Scriptures 

Although Saturn is much larger than the Earth, it’s surface gravity is only a little more than the surface gravity on Earth. This is only because of Saturn is made up of mostly gases part and is not solid like Earth.
Now the question is why Saturn has such massive gravity though it is made up of gaseous structure? What contributes to all this Saturn gravity?. The element-wise core structure of Saturn is largely comprised of hydrogen and helium, which came together at the beginning of the Solar System, gathered by their mutual mass. It’s the same composition as Jupiter and the Sun have. These primordial elements were formed at the beginning of the Universe in the Big Bang if we see modern assessment but in Hindu cosmology, Saturn celestial structure and origin has a different story.This shows that the Same power which is present on Sun is also present in rest of planets too including Saturn.It’s the same force which keeps on pulling every planet to each other which the sun has.
What is that Power? Is it a Magnetic Shield or the magnetic force of attraction which we called gravity or something else? Let’s understand first, What is mentioned in Scriptures about Gravity or force of attraction, that keep on attracting every other planet in the solar system with fixed boundaries. Science has named this force of attraction -The Gravitational force of planets. 

What is Gravitational Force of Planets

 
“Vaishesika Sutra” discusses the role of Gravity Deeply for every object present in this solar system or in celestial sphere and can help us in understanding how planets affect us either by aspect or by stronger magnetic attraction. everything is accountable in understanding that gravitational force:

 

The Same thing has been explained by Bhaskaracharya on Surya Siddhanta around 400 AD;

 

“Vaishesika Sutra”  describes that in the absence of conjunction (In an action) falling results due to Gravity.

संयोगभावे गुरुत्वात्पतनम (V.S. 5.1.7)

In the absence of conjunction (Gurutvat) (is a process , defines the action or an instance of two or more events or things occurring at the same point in time or space.)
 falling results from Gravity.
Which means something that makes progress, movement, or achieving something difficult or impossible is the process of Impediment responsible for Gurutvat.
Thus it clearly recognizes objects fall downward due to Gravity.
Sutra 5.1.8 States that due to the absence of a particular molecular motion there arises no upward or side-ward motion in any object causes to fall down.

Why does an object throw in air fall after some time? 

Then Vaishesika Sutra discusses the role of Gravity in falling of moving objects. It gives through the analogy of arrow. First, it gives mechanism of arrow projection in Sutra 5.1.17
नोदनाद्यभिषोः कर्म तत्कर्मकारिताच्च संस्कारादुत्तरं तथोत्तरमुत्तरं च 
The first action of the arrow is from impulse; the next is resultant energy produced by the first action, and similarly the next to next.

 

Then it explains why it falls in next Sutra.

 

 

संस्काराभावे गुरुत्वात्पतनम (V.S. 5.1.18)
In the absence of resultant/propulsive energy generated by the action, falling results from Gravity.
Thus from the above Sutras, we can acknowledge that Vaisheshika Sutra clearly discusses Gravity. It uses the word “Gurutwa” which is also used in present time to represent Gravity. Gurutwa in ancient understanding means force which arises due to mass.

Text from Rig Veda 10.22.14 also says that

“This earth is devoid of hands and legs, yet it moves ahead. All the objects over the earth also move with it. It moves around the sun.”

In this mantra,

Kshaa = Earth (refer Nigantu 1.1) Ahastaa = without hands Apadee = without legs Vardhat = moves ahead Shushnam Pari = Around the sun Pradakshinit = revolves and further Rig Veda 10.149.1 also says that by which force  earth and rest of planetary structure is attracted toward the sun;

 

“The sun has tied Earth and other planets through attraction and moves them around itself as if a trainer moves newly trained horses around itself holding their reins.”
In this mantra,
Savita = Sun Yantraih = through reins Prithiveem = Earth Aramnaat = Ties Dyaam Andahat = Other planets in sky as well Atoorte = Unbreakable Baddham = Holds Ashwam Iv Adhukshat = Like horses

There is clear text about GRAVITATIONAL FORCE mentioned in Rig Veda 8.12.28

“O Indra! by putting forth your mighty rays, which possess the qualities of gravitation and attraction-illumination and motion – keep up the entire universe in order through the Power of your attraction.”

Rig Veda 1.6.5 and Rig Veda 8.12.30 Says,

“O God, You have created this Sun. You possess infinite power. You are upholding the sun and other spheres and render them steadfast by your power of attraction.”

Yajur Veda 33.43 Says, 

“The sun moves in its own orbit in space taking along with itself the mortal bodies like earth through force of attraction.”

Rig Veda 1.35.9 Says, 

The sun moves in its own orbit but holding earth and other heavenly bodies in a manner that they do not collide with each other through force of attraction.”

Rig Veda 1.164.13 further says that,

“Sun moves in its orbit which itself is moving. Earth and other bodies move around the sun due to the force of attraction, because the sun is heavier than them”.
Atharva Veda 4.11.1 Says,
“The sun has held the earth and other planets”
From all Rig Vedic Sutras, we can confirm that Due to Sun pulling Force every planet is dire to attached and attracted toward him by a unique magnetic force and by the same force all these planets are affecting us with some sort of Planetary attraction in the form of Cosmic rays.
As we are born with the same elements those Sun and rest of planetary structure are made of, Having on their surface, the same magnetic force keeps pulling us and influencing our mental makeup, the state of mind and power of discretion in every day to day karmas. Thus Celestial bodies including Saturn does have a bigger role in our life.
“There are suns in all directions, the night sky being full of them.” (Rig Veda)”

“Blue Sky is Nothing but scattered sunlight (Markandeya Purana 78.8)”

Conclusion:

Now  ! We have understood it well, what is gravity and how different planets are well connected with the sun and its gravitational force and why because of that every planet keeps affecting us. Now, The next question is what makes the Saturn Aspects are So special in influencing our karmic actions ?. As in this portion, we have studied the Saturn mathematical and astronomical aspect. In the next portion, we will try to understand how our Puranic ancient stories are well connected with the planetary aspects and structure. we will try to figure out deep answers lie in the Puranic stories those are connected with the Saturn Evolution time.For understanding Saturn aspects part in a predictive way via natal chart , click below on continue:

 A Study of Heliocentric Science by Swami Abhedananda 

 

How to Unlock your Pending karma’s of past life from the natal chart- Part 1

According to the Vedic astrology system, astrology closely linked with the past lives accumulated karmas which get manifested in the present life. The whole theory of the Vedic Astrology surrounds around the belief of karma’s, reincarnation and the concept of Moksha. Whereas karakas of the pending karmas are Saturn, Rahu/Ketu, and Ketu is mainly seen for moksha, detachment, and rejection in this life regarding material prosperity. Rahu is mainly seen for all sort of desires that are pending from the past life and Saturn is majorly seen for all sort of karmas, either it is ongoing, collected from past or it is form of new karmas whereas nodes are seen for the dispense of dynamic karmas when their transits and Dasha’s get active. According to Sideral system of Indian astrology, It is believed that a soul has to wait for the exact constellation of stars before it takes birth in this world from the mother womb. Karma theory states that type of life one person enjoy in this present life purely depends on the “Sanchit Karma” (accumulated deeds of past lives) that one soul has gathered from the many of the soul journies. Vedic astrology is only a unique science that considers the effects of accumulated deeds of the past life. It has been seen that various Dasha system’s those are devised in Vedic astrology used for “unfolding one’s karma in the past”. Any major change in the Dasha system can bring good or bad results depending on one’s karmic records or total baggage one carries from earlier lives.

For tracing past life pending karmas Vedic astrology gives much emphasis on the concept of “Rinanu- Bandhan” (past life debts) in relationships to see whom we have pending karmas attached with. This clearly indicates that the relationship we make in the form of friend’s or enemies or any sort of close relationship we keep purely depends on the upon past life debts. Which means no one comes in a person’s life without any reason. Every relationship is interlinked with each other by some means because of the past connections, some times we called them those relations as karmic relations or sometimes soul relations. If one keeps making relations and keep making contacts with people those he feels that he is so attached with somehow means that person karma is still pending and he has to finish it till it is not finished. It means, if someone keeps coming repeatedly in someone life or if one is not able to resolve some unfinished issues, then it means person or issues are linked with some karmic baggage of past lives. Even the fortune or downfall one shares in his married or career life or luck with someone, which clearly indicated that such a relationship is developing in this life because of past debts. It is also has been seen that at same times someone becomes good for the other.

Now the question arises why we human being has to face such type of situations in our life with each other ? what is the reason behind this? According to the Vedic astrology system, we have two reasons; either there is pending karma with the person which is native carried forwarded from the past or one is facing issues in this life due to the curses one get via his bad deeds. These “doshas” usually cause problems in having children, having trouble in making good relationship with either husband or wife, one may face severe career-related issues i.e no stability in the career, no financial security or stability even after having good married life or good job.

Our Scriptures has mentioned various such doshas that are mentioned in BPHS. Though in the current article we will not discuss reasons for curses or debts. our motive is to decode the reasons for pending karmas by various techniques via natal chart. some of those doshas or curses mentioned in BPHS are as mentioned below :

1) Curses of snakes: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Rahu in the natal chart. Effects of this curse give childlessness, fear from snakes and snake bites. This curse originates due to the killing of snakes in past lives. Root house for this curse is to been seen from the 5th house.

1) Curses of father: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Sun in the horoscope which gets triggered in the natal chart due to wrongs done to father or due to the suffering of souls of forefathers. It gives issues of childlessness, uneasy relationships with father in the current life, untimely death of father and lack of happiness from father. To understand this curse or debt one has to see 5th, 9th and 10th house.

3) Curses of mother: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Moon in the natal chart. This may happen due to ill-treatment with mother in past life. It gives issues of childlessness, problematic relationship with mother in the current life, unhappiness from mother, the untimely death of the mother. We have to see the Influences on the 4th, 5th house and moon with nodes to understand the curse.

4) Curses of brother: According to the Vedic astrology this curse has to be seen from the placement and strength or weakness of mars and Jupiter.whereas for younger brother planet Mars has to be seen and Jupiter for elder brother.Though in Nadi we see elder brother via Saturn. It gives problem in childlessness, difficult relationship with brothers, problems from brothers and lack of cordial relations with brother. To understand the curse we need to decode the placement of 3rd, 11th and 5th house along with affliction on Mars and Jupiter either via nodes or via Saturn.

5) Curses of maternal relations: For maternal relations, we need to check affliction on mercury and Saturn. It will give difficult relationship with maternal relations and we need to check affliction on 5th house and mercury, Saturn.

6) Curses of Spiritual Persons: To see curse of spiritual person we need to see affliction on Jupiter. It majorly gives problem in childlessness, problems from teachers, unhappiness, slow growth in life, stuck life, and general dissatisfaction in life, etc. We need to see the affliction on the 9th and 5th house along with Jupiter and their lordship condition.

7) Curses of the wife (or women): To see the curse or debt from females or wife one has to see the condition of the planet Venus. Any affliction on the planet venus via Nodes, Saturn or mars have majorly seen for the activation of the curse. The placement of Venus in the natal and divisional chart is important to understand the curse. It majorly gives effect problem in childlessness, difficulty in getting married, problems from wife or women, the possibility of divorce, defamation from women, etc. The most important house to be considered is the 7th house/lord.

8) Curses of Evil spirits: To see curse from the evil Spirits we need to see the planetary placement of the Rahu and Ketu in the natal chart. Generally, Role of the Nodes and Bhadhaka Graha, their lord and placement have key roles in identifying the curse from the evil spirits. It gives major problem in mental setup of the native, it gives fear from unknown and majorly fear of ghosts. we need to see the conditions of Moon, Saturn, the 5th house and the fifth lord in the natal chart along with Bhadhaka Graha and lord.

Techniques to Unlock the Pending Karma’s from the birth chart

 

In the next section, we will discuss the major techniques used to identify the pending karma from the natal chart.so lets decoding the secrets of past life but first, we need to understand the concept of karma, reincarnation and the cycle of karma.

Lord Sri Krishna said in ‘The Bhagawad Gita’,
” vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya navani grhnati naro ‘paranitatha sarirani vihaya jirnany anyani samyati navani dehi “
As a man, casting off worn-out garments takes new ones, so the dweller in the body, casting off worn-out bodies, enters into others that are new”. He has also said, “The misdeeds of our past lives torment us in the form of illnesses or ailments”.

Explanation Given By Yogananda on the above Verse :

” During our daily lives, we change our old and/or dirty clothes and put on new and/or clean clothes whenever the need arises. Similarly, the soul or atman casts off its worn-out physical body and takes residence in a newer physical body at regular intervals in time. Just like the clothes that we wear do not represent the real state of our physical body, the state of our physical body (which deteriorates over time and is hence impermanent) does not represent the truly unchangeable and permanent nature of the soul that resides within it.

The eternal does not move from place to place but the embodied soul moves from one abode to another. It takes birth each time and gathers to itself a mind, life and body formed out of the materials of nature according to its past evolution, karma, deed and its needs for the future. The psychic being is the vijnana which supports the triple manifestation of the body, life, and mind. When the gross physical body falls away, the vital and mental sheaths still remain as the vehicle of the soul. Rebirth is the law of nature. There is an objective connection between the various forms of life. “Like corn, a mortal ripens and like corn is he born again”.

(Katha Upanisad, Ch 1, verse 6).

This verse refers to the doctrine of reincarnation in Hinduism. Death is described here as the simple discarding of a worn-out garment for a new one. When the body becomes diseased and old, the ever-lasting soul forsakes it for a new disguise. Death is but a change of attire in an uninterrupted continuity of immortality.

According to the pearls of Vedic wisdom, every human being has to pay some rinas or debts after taking birth in earth mundane plain and he is born owing five important debts:
1) Debt to God
2) Debt to Ancestors
3) Debt to Humankind
4) Debt to Guests
5) Debt to Animals and plants (Debt to Prakriti /Nature) and they must repay those karmic debts during their lifetime.

few of the debts are easy to pay but some of the Rina’s are hard to clear during this lifetime.

  • Debt to God for their blessings: paid by rituals and offerings.
  • Debt to Ancestors and teachers: paid by supporting them, having children of one’s own and passing along knowledge.
  • Debt to Guests: repaid by treating them as if they were gods visiting one’s home.
  • Debt to Mankind: Mutual cooperation and serving others can help to repay this debt to mankind- such as giving money, clothes, shelter, and land, to poor people, giving food and water to hungry people and helping orphans-or any other help that is appropriate.
The fifth debt to the cosmic elements and everything that arises out of them (bhut-runa) means Debt to Naturea person is indebted to plants, trees, birds, animals and nature (called Bhuta Rin) — repaid by offering goodwill, food, water, or any other help that is appropriate.

Repaying these five debts, called Pancha-maha-yajna, is compulsory in Hinduism. By this five yajna the worshipper places himself in correct relations with God, ancestors, spirits, men, the organic creation, nature and himself.

 

How to Clear Debts

 

 

Although there is none another such way to understand the past birth Debts or underlying karma process and what soul has gone through in last birth and what it will bring to the new birth. God way and process of management and operations are way beyond our imagination to understand how life and souls cycle is moving around Birth and death cycle.

We are biologically a very small electrically charged energies residing in a physical bodies having limitation to the material world, our reach and understanding life cycle in a simple plain language is not an easy task. Unless and until we are able to develop our Kundalini Shakti via deep Spiritual penance unless we can’t understand how the soul’s deeper roots karmic accounts are connected with life and death cycle.

Neither we are Yogic Person nor we are born as a Godly soul having extraordinary sensory abilities to experience futuristic visions or dream and able to understand for what purpose we took birth but yes there are certain methods via we can understand how our this life is connected with the past birth Karma’s, Rinas, and curses ( Unfinished Karmas).

One of the common methods is Understanding past life impressions via Regression therapy and other is having Extraordinary astrological knowledge on studying Past Birth Astrological cases via various Astrological charts and tools by a different branch of jyotish but astrologer must be well experienced in collecting and analyzing different life experiences with natal charts.

If you are seeking a detailed guidance regarding deep understanding on Life Purpose, Spiritual awakening, Spiritual Learning, Understanding past lives curses, debts and past birth karmic sufferings, then you need to understand the deeper karmic connections which are linked with debts and pending and decode it we need to understand methodologies used for decoding Past birth rina and curses for better understanding on karma and moving toward right Spiritual.

Although, Tracing Pending karma from a natal chart is always a tough job, as many people carry those karmas from immediate last birth or some of them carrying from many of past journeys. These are hard to trace combinations. Below are few observations which I have studied from many of the charts for Pending karmas and found true and working in many of the cases.

Technique 1 :

A) Check the number of Retrograde planets in the Natal chart:  Look for the presence of a number of retrograde planets in the chart. Total number of Presence of Retrograde planets in the Natal chart shows how many pending karmas one has to exhaust in this birth. More the Retrograde planets more the total pending karmas one has to finish in this life i.e if one has a presence of 3 retrograde planets, then it means one has accumulated 3 pending karmas from many of the past journies. Each of the Retrograde planet shows, karma connected with the karakas of the planets. To see what exactly the karma is pending with the native, check the placement of the Retrograde planets in the natal chart, check, in which sign planet is placed and how many planets are aspecting it. Sign shows sufferings or delays may face in this birth and aspects show via whom you may face such hurdles, difficulties, and hurdles in this life. Dispositer lord placement of the Retrograde planet in the natal chart shows what you need to do in this life in order to fix the pending karma. To see what exactly is the pending karma retrograde planet is indicating that one has to finish in this birth or giving a clue for certain area of life, check its 12th house placement from the retrograde planet, that house placement will show the area where one has to experience the pending karma that one has to finish. for e.g if one has retrograde planet placed in the 9th house then it means pending karma is either with the guru, teacher or father and one has to experience it in this life via 8th house matter which is the 12th house placement from the 9th. 8th shows sufferings, health issues, hurdles and unknown troubles in life. now let us understand more by different planetary examples how we can judge it :
1) If Mars is retrograde, and if it is connected with the Lagna or trik Bhavas ( i.e 6th, 8th or 12th house/lord) – There will be intense Pending karmas connected with Brothers, enemies, Husband ( In Nadi), fights, Legal battles, Land, Houses, War, bravery, Kings, and Kshatriya etc. To see what exactly the karma is pending with, check the placement of the Retrograde mars in which sign and how many planets are aspecting it.
2) If Saturn is Retrograde – and if it is connected with the Lagna and trik bhavas – Then there will be deep Pending Karmas connected one’s own action in the society i,e with Karam, Actions, work, Career, debts, sins, deeds, workers, social circle, Society, Land, agriculture, and Mass, etc.
3) If Jupiter is Retrograde – then one has Pending Karmas connected with the Spiritual Guru, teacher or father he has met in the past life, or it is with the Teacher, Knowledge he has learned in past, or it is connected with one’s Learning, or there might be a karma connected with the Brahmin, Gurukul and it is the karma given by the god to finish it in this life etc. if it is connected to the trik bhavas then one has to Experience it in any case via serving people. If it is connected with the Upachaya and Dharma Bhavas then one may get success via it and one will do service to the people in the right manner for uplifting own self and other also.
4) If it is Venus – then one has pending karma connected with his wife, sister, relationships and one has to give to his Wife, Spouse, Girlfriend, elder sister and one may face hardships or some karmic debt or pending karma with respect to Relationships, wealth, luxury and majorly with the wife or lover he or she may face or experience. If the conjunction is with Sun, Nodes, Mars and Saturn, AK then the Severity would be intense and it can give hard lessons in relationships or marriage. Many a case it gives hardships, struggles in Wealth, Luxury and comfort matters. Even it gives an indication with the concerned people those are connected with the karka of Venus i.e sister in law etc. Start of pending karma depends on the Lordship of the venus in Natal chart Mool trikona rashi, that house shows the event that can trigger the past karma i,e if Venus is lord of 9th house ( then event trigger after when one starts its higher learning or enter in any institution or society).The same way you can check for other planets as well

Technique 2 : 

B)  Check where the Bhrigu Bindu is placed in the natal chart, the sign, planet placed in it and its lord shows what sort of karma is pending in this birth and whom it is pending and how one can finish it. If BB is placed in the 10th house then one may have pending karma with the society or with the environment where he works or with the colleagues he works in society. whenever any major planet like Jupiter, Rahu/Ketu and Saturn transit on this point; BB, native experience major shift in his destiny in that particular year till that Transit is active  with respect to that sign and house placement during particular years and same way vimshotri and Chara dasha of the BB lord point shows major shift one can experience in one’s destiny during their. We will explain the concept of Bhrigu Bindu in detail in the next part with an example chart.

Technique 3 : 

C) Check the house Placement and sign of the 3rd house and its lord ( Karyesha) in the natal and D3 chart ( Jaganath Drekkana) it shows your karma one is born with to fulfill in this birth by doing certain actions and karmas in the society. As 3rd house is the house of actions and initiatives done by the jeeva, and it is also directly opposite to the 9th house which shows your Past birth, father and the Bhagya, it shows your Free will (Force of karma that one perform against his destiny)  and in broader sense it will show your must-have actions or karmas that you need to perform in this birth to unlock the future karma or actions one need require in this current birth.

Technique 4 : 

D) Check the 6th house, Sign, planets placed in this house and its lord in the natal chart to decode the Shadripus one has to cross in this birth in order to achieve the purpose of this life. This house, planets placed in it and its lord shows what is the pending karma of this life that must be finish in order to finish or cross this life cycle barrier and reach to next life. For e.g if one has sign libra in the 6th house and there is no planet placed in the house then we have to see where 6th house lord is placed. that placement shows what sort of blockage one is experiencing in this birth  with respect to that particular house placement. If we take current Example, venus is 6th lord and if it is placed in the 10th house in Aquarius sign then one may experience a problem in his career or profession because of his relationships with the female members in his office environment or one can face problem in his career via his wife  or one face hurdle in his career life or performing certain karma in society due to the properties of the venus i.e problems via females, wife, wealth etc.

Technique 5 : 

E) Check Placement and Sign aspect of Saturn and Rahu in the natal chart, shows what is the Major karma that needs to work on it in current life and if both the planets make a relation to each other or some Sambandha in a way by Mutual Aspects, conjunctions then one need to first finish this house karma in order to grow or progress in this life. for e.g Saturn is placed in 8th house and Rahu is placed in the 5th house , As Saturn is aspecting 5th house by 10th aspect then one needs to finish the pending karma wrt to 5th house matters i.e Bhakti, Stability of the chitta ( Mind) affairs, romance, children’s and basic education etc.

Note : These Pending karmas one has to exhaust in any case without any delay or without escaping point from it, Dashas, Ad, and Pd of all these retrograde planets play the main role in turning life into a major transformative events and one has to finish it in any case by experiencing it and all these planets play a major role in transforming inner conscious (Spiritual instinct) of the native. Either they teach a hard lesson or one totally get spiritual in these dasha periods.

Technique 6 :

Karma from D9 and Divisional charts :
There are also few other pending Karmas which are very intense and one cannot avoid it and those are presence in the form of curses and Karmic point. All these intense karmas one has to seen from the D9, D3, D30 and D60 chart. Whereas Planetry conjunction with either North node or south nodes in D9 shows the Deep and very intense karmas which were long pending from many of the birth and native is trying to avoid it or carry forwarding to many of birth from long via some divine help, guru blessings or Good Deeds.
As, Rahu-Ketu shows Sudden karmic point whereas Saturn shows karma that one has to improve it in this birth with own efforts and actions. Rahu-Ketu karmas have come in the form of mundane and physical sufferings and karma of Saturn comes in the form of Learning and lessons.
i.e If Rahu is placed with Venus in d9 chart – One had deep, Sudden and intense karma connected with either wife or girlfriend, Relationships (Extra or pre-marital physical relations) , some karma connected with lady love or with women whom he loves in past birth that can give either intense suffering or one may learn a hard lessons after marriage or it can starts when one person get involved in any relationship.
If Sun is with Rahu, then one may play a deep and intense relationship with Father or fatherly figure people, this conjunction can activate a Pitru curse in chart when Sun is involved with either 5th or 9th lord in D1 chart and it is in conjunction in d9 chart. this can activate it either after marriage or when some joins Job or he or she do bad deeds to any of fatherly figure native.
If Moon is with Rahu – then it gives deep and intense emotional sufferings via Mother, mother in law or eldest sister or via suffering intensely in an emotional bond. this could be very intense when the moon is lord of 4th house in d1 and same time if it is lord of 7th lord in d9. then it can get activate after marriage.
same we can check for Planetary conjunction with Ketu that shows Long pending karma connected with the past birth that one is avoiding from many of the birth. Ketu shows what is left behind, one’s rejections that have to experience and what is you have to finish in this birth to grow yourself spiritually. Ketu is a planet of detachment so here suffering and the lesson is connected in the form of detachment and one may face lots of detachment via karaka of the planet as native may have given sufferings or detachment to someone in that past birth in any of the form

Other Pending karmas are seen from the D3, D30 and  D60 chart that shows the karma of immediate last birth, that one has to face or experience in this birth that we will cover in the 2nd part of this article with example charts. It could be seen in these above mentioned divisional charts when karka of any of planet is connected with Mars, Saturn and nodes in D3, D30 and D60 chart, those having lordship with the 6th, 8th, 12th or Lagna in the D1 chart.D3 chart majorly shows about the Bott past and future karma native has to experience i.e what is the soul goal of the native or what one has to experience in this birth due to the good and Bad deeds done via the native. whereas D30 chart shows about the Suffering one has to experience in this birth because of his weaknesses, shadripus, sins and past debts.

I hope people would have enjoyed this article reading it and people will try to apply in their chart to understand it more deeply with the example charts. In the 2nd part, we will try to explain each and every technique with example charts of people those have experienced their destiny and past karmas astrologically.

Reincarnation and Astrology : Decoding Past Life of Shanti Devi

 

Article Written and Researched By

Sumanta Ghosal

Life Reincarnation is mainly a vedic philosophical concept that an aspect of living being starts a new life in a different physical body after each bio-logical death. It is a central point of vedic literature. Then other Indian religions such as Buddhism, Jainism and Shikh follows this concept.

But today I am going tfo discuss regarding Reincarnation and Astrology. We all know the twin beliefs of Karma and Reincarnation are among Hinduism many jewels of knowledge. Karma literally means “deed or act”, but more broadly it describes the pinciple of cause and effect. Simply stated Karma is a law of action and reaction which governs conscioussness. In metaphysics, Karma is the law that states that every mental, emotional and physical act, no matter how insignificant, is projected out into yhe physic mind substance and eventually returns to the individual with equal impact.

In ‘Bhagvad Gita’ Lord Shree Krishna says to Arjuna –

“वासाांसस जीर्ाासि यथा सवहाय
िवासि गह्णृ ासि िरोऽपरासर् ।
िथा शरीरासर् सवहाय जीर्ाा
न्यन्यासि सांयासि िवासि देही ॥” – Chapter 2, verse 22

It means during our day to day liles we change our old and dirty cloths and take a new/clean cloths whenever we need. Similarly, the Souls or Aatman costs off its worn out physical body at regular intervals of time. Soul is immortal but the physical body is mortal.

This sloka or verse refers to the doctrine of Reincarnation in Vedic philosophy. Death is described here as the simple process of a worn out garmentsfor a new one. Death is nothing but a chage attire in an uninterrupted continuity of immortality. In ‘Bhagvad Gita’, chapter number 2, verse number 23 Lord Krishna states to Arjuna-

“ििै ां सिन्दसन्ि शस्त्रासर् ििै ां दहसि पावकः ।
ि चिै ां क्लेदयन््यापो ि शोषयसि मारुिः ॥”

Lord Krishna states Aatman can not be harmed by weapons- and since it is formless and shapeless – it can not be cut into pieces by any instruments. In the same way, fire can not burn it or destroy it. Water can not wet it because water can act only elements which have physical description or dimensions. For the same reason, wind can not dry it or exert any force on it. Thus the Aatman is beyond the influence of all three primary forces which can affect entities having physical form and description.

REINCARNATION AND ASTROLOGY

But today I am going to discuss regarding the relation between Astrology and Reincarnation. We all know Astrology is nothing but a celestial map of our previous births deeds. Our previous deeds or Karma decides our fate in this existance. By grace and blessings of my Ishtadev Lord Shiva, I am able to collect some birth datas of those people who can remember their previous births. I have collected those datas from various books and internet. I am thankful to them.Astrologically speaking a person’s natal chart does contain indicators for knowing the past and future births.

In a classic astrology book named Phaladeepika, we come to know how to predict past and future births. The author of this book is Manteswara, in the 14th chapter there comes information on astrological pointers to know previous and future births. According to Phaladeepika, the 9th house holds the key.

If 9th lord in natal chart is exalted, the previous birth was in a high society of good people. If 9th lord in natal chart is in debility or in enemy’s sign, the previous birth was in a different country. If 9th lord is in his own house or in a freind’s house, the previous birth was in the same country where the person belongs (Manteswara states Bharat Varsha/India).

In such cases, if 9th lord happens to be Jupiter, the person was born in Aryavarta (Himalayas Vindhyas area).

If 9th lord happens to be Venus or Moon, the person was born near sacred rivers such as Ganga,
Narmada, Kavery etc.

If 9th lord happens to be Mercury, the person was born near places of God like Lord Vishnu or Lord
Shiva.

If 9th lord happens to be Saturn, the person was born in meleccha desha- outside of India or where
Vedic culture is not prevailed.

If 9th lord happens to be Sun, the person was born in a place of forests or mountains.

If 9th lord happens to be Mars, the person was born in places where living was difficult.

To detect future birth we judge 5th lord carefully. To detect future birth same rules are applicable as
mentioned above. But here 5th lord should be judged instead of 9th lord.

Now we have to judge what kind of birth we spent during last birth and what kind of birth we will spend in future birth- whether as plant life or animal life.

According to Vedic philosophy the souls are born in four forms- as Devas, Human, Animals and Plant life.

Manteshwaraclearly states in his book Phaladeepika regarding this :

If the 9th lord is placed in Bhustadhaya rashi which is fixed sign also, the previous birth was that of same Vegetarian.

If the 9th lord is placed in Seershadhaya rashi which is movable sign also, the previous birth was that of same living being, either animal or man.

If the 9th lord is placed in exaltation sign or own house or friend’s house of the lagna lord, the previous
birth was that of a human being.

If the 9th lord is placed in neutral sign of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of an animal.
If the 9th lord is placed in enemy sign of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of a bird.

To detect future birth judge 5th lord in the same way as mentioned above.

These are the rules given by the famous astrologer Manteswara in his monumental book named –
“Phaladeepika”.

We get some more clues regarding past and future births from “Brihat Jataka”- by Varahamihira.

According to Varahamihira, Jupiter,Moon and Venus, Sun and Mars, Saturn and Mercury bring people from Devloka, Pitriloka, Tiryagloka and Narakloka. respectively.

We have to judge first who is powerful among Sun and Moon is rashi chart. We have to choose the powerful one and see its position in Drekkana chart. The lord of that house signifies the key of previous birth.

In such a lord in D3 is Jupiter, it signifies that the person was in Devaloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord is Moon or Venus then that person was in Pitriloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord in D3 is Sun or Mars then that person was in Tiryaloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord in D3 is Mercury or Saturn then that person was in Narakloka before his birth on earth.

To detect future birth take 8th lord and see the D3 chart where 8th lord occupies. The lord of the 3rd
house of 8th lord signifies future birth of native.

If such lord is exalted or in benefic position, then we come to this conclusion that person has enjoyed high status in that loka. If it is opposite then reversed result is indicated.

Now I am going to discuss on some case histories regarding this. I have collected these case histories from some books and internet. At the end of my article I will mention regarding this.

1. Shanti Devi and Ms Lugdi devi –

In Delhi, a little girl was born named Shanti. She was born on 11th december, 1926 at 13:48 pm. She gave an elaborate description about her past life. Common public were astonished having heard her statements. In her previous birth she was known as Ms Lugdi, died on 4th october 1925 during delivery of her third child. All of her statements were verified carefully by respected and educated persons including Mahatma Gandhi. Shanti Devi never married due to fear of pregnancy.

A) Chart of Lugdi Devi –

D.O.B- 18.01.1902, T.O.B- 10 AM, P.O.B- Mathura (U.P)

She died in Moon dasha-Rahu antardasha.This is Lugdi Devi’s chart who died at the time of delivery. She was born as Shanti Devi in her future birth.

Now Let’s examine her chart. Her 5th lord as well as 8th lord is Mercury. We all know 5th lord is indicator of future birth. 5th house lord Mercury occupies in 12th house in Capricorn. Capricorn is Saturn’s house. Saturn here lagna lord also. 5th lord Mercury is occupied in 12th house which is friend’s house of Mercury.

It denotes that native’s future birth will be as human. As we know Manteshwara states in his book ‘Phaladeepika’ – that if 9th or 5th lord isin own house or in a friend’s house then previous and future birth forms as human being and in same country.

Here Lugdi’s 5th lord Mercuryis in 12th house that means Saturn’s house which isher lagnesh also. Saturn’s friend is Mercury. So Lugdi Devi’s future birth would be as human being in same country that is India. Lugdi Devi reincarnated as Shanti Devi in her future birth. Lugdi Devi’s 5th lord Mercury occupies in venus navamsha. Venus occupies in lagna, Venus indicates sacred river such as Ganga, Yamuna, Kaveri etc. Lugdi Devi born as Shanti Devi in her future birth in Delhi where sacred Yamuna river exists.

Now I am going to discuss on Shanti Devi’s birth chart who was Lugdi Devi in previous birth. Born in Rahu mahadasha and Mercury antardasha.

Shanti Devi known as Lugdi Devi in her previous birth. Shanti Devi’s 9th lord is Mars, occupied in own house, aries. As per Manteshwara’s ‘Phaladeepika’- If 9th lord is in own house or in friend’s house, previous birth was as human being in same country. We know Lugdi Devi is born as Shanti Devi in Mathura. Mars is in Moon navamsa. Moon denotes sacred river such as Ganga, Yamuna etc. Mathura is near to sacred river Yamuna.

Notes: –

i) We observe that Lugdi’s ascendant was kumbha where Shanti Devi’s (incarnation of Lugdi Devi) ascendant is Meen, 2nd house of Kumbha. It means where Lugdi ended her life journey from there Shanti Devi started her journey again in a different physical body.

ii) Lugdi died in Moon dasha and Rahu antardasha. Shanti devi was born in Rahu mahadasha and Mercury antardasha.

2. Another case study of reincarnation is Rampratap Singh. Rampratap Singh was born in 10th january at 10:30 am in Delhi. He could remember his previous birth. According to him, he was born in same family where he is born in this birth. He died by an accident took place on 6th february 1983. In his previous birth he was born 30th december 1958 at 8:55 pm, Delhi. Now I am going to analyse his previous birth chart and his this existance birth chart.

Previous birth of Rampratap Singh

D.O.B- 30.12.1958, T.O.B- 08:55 PM, P.O.B- Delhi

This is the birth chart of Rampratap Singh’s previous existence. Let us analyse this. 5th lord denotes future birth. Here 5th lord occupies in 10th house in Aries sign which is Mars own sign. According to Manteshwara, If 5th lord is in own house or in a friend’s house, future birth will be as human being in same country. In his next birth the native born in same country and same city.

Now we will discuss his present birth chart. In his previous birth he died on 6th february 1983. And the
native born as Rampratap Singh on -10th january 1984 at 10:30 am in Delhi.

He was born in Saturn dasha aand mars antardasha.

His 9th lord Venus and 10th lord Mars interchanges house. So no malefic results will be occured. Venus is in star of Mercury. Mercury is friend of Saturn and Venus. So it indicates Rampratap Singh’s previous birth was as human being in a same country, same city. As his Lagna is in even sign and as his ascendant is in moon’s hora, Rampratap Singh is born in same family where he was born in his previous birth.

Case Study number- 3

Another rebirth case study I am going to mention here. The name of this person is Pooran Singh. He was born on 9th december 1968 at 4:10 am, Kapurthala.This person can remember his previous birth.

According to him he was born on 19th november 1929 at 6:26 pm at Moga and died on 19th may 1966 by an accident.

Pooran Singh’s previous birth chart-

He died in 19th may 1966 in Saturn dasha and Mercury antardasha.

From 5th lord we judge future birth. 5th lord Mercury is in 6th house Libra which is Venus sign. Venus is lagnesh and 6th lord also. Mercury and Venus are mutual friends of each other. In famous astrological book ‘Phaladeepika’, Manteshwara states that if 5th lord is occupied in own house or friend house then native’s future birth will be as human being and he will born in same country and same region. Hence all the combinations are fulfilled. After death the native is born as Pooran Singh at Kapurthala. Kapurthala and Moga’s distance is not so far. Both places are under Punjab state. Now i am going to analyse his present birth chart.

Pooran Singh

D.O.B- 09.12.1968, T.O.B- 4:10 AM, P.O.B- Kapurthala

Born in Saturn dasha and Mercury antardasha.From 9th house we denotes previous birth. 9th lord is Mercury occupies in 2nd house Scorpio with Sun and Mercury both are in Jyestha star which is Mercury Star. Mars is in Virgo which is Mercury’s house.So Mercury and Mars both interchanges each others house. Mercury’s signification is prime here. As a result we come to this conclusion that native was born in human being in his previous birth in same
region.

Note:- In his previous birth he died in Saturn dasha and mercury antardasha. In his present birth he was born in same dasha and antardasha. Soul has just changed new mortal body. Soul’s evaluation is continuously going on.In his previous birth chart ascendant was Taurus that is Venus sign. In this present birth he is born under Libra ascendant which is Venus sign too.

In Shashta Kanda of Mahabharat, Lord Shiva explains to Goddess Parvati: –

“Tasmajjatismara loke jayante Badhshanyukta
Tesha Vivardhatam sangya swapanvat sa pranashyati
Parlokashya chesitatve moodhanam karanam tuidam “

It means when a person who dies suddenly somewhere and is born again suddenly, his old habits and samskaars may remain for some time. But as they grow up, their old memories disappear like dreams.In this way birth and death cycle is going on. It will never be ended until soul get salvation or moksha.

Thats why Adi Shankaracharya states-

“Punaropi Jananam Punaropi maranam, punoropi janani jathare shyanam
Tha samsare khalu dustare – kripayapare pahi murae.”

It means we take birth again and again and die again anad again, sleep again and again in the womb of
mother. The world is so difficult place to stay. Oh God! rescue me from all this anad give me salvation.

Decoding Left Handers, What Makes left handers – A Naadi Methodologies Perview

LEFT HANDERS – A NAADI PERVIEW

   By H.Ramadas Rao

ॐ श्री गुरुभ्यो नमः

With the Blessings of Acharya Madhva,my Kula Devatha ,Ishta Devatha and my Naadi Guru Shri R.G.Rao,I would like to present a new topic on Left Handers based on Naadi Astrology.

Natural zodiac 3rd house,Mithuna Rashi and its Lord Budha indicate our shoulders,arms ie.,hands.Budha also is significator or Karaka for our central nervous system in the brain.Actually all our actions are through the signals from our brain only.Human brain is a more powerful part of the body even more than that of a computer.This is God’s creation.In this brain also,all the 7 planets are allotted some particular part/parts as shown in the following ancient diagram of human brain :

The planets are indicated in the form of some symbols whose meanings are given below.( Earth can be omitted as we stand on earth ) :

The symbols given above are Surya,Budha,Shukra ( Earth ),Chandra,Kuja ,Guru and Shani.Thus any planet afflicted in the brain part will give wrong signals to the particular part of the body and so we suffer from various diseases,accidents etc.Thus we can see the middle portion of the forehead,upper portion and the side part is controlled by Budha/Mercury who is the controller of our central nervous system in the brain.We can also see through the following picture how our body parts are connected through the brain :

The above picture is only a part showing how our head,face,eyes,hand and its related parts,leg and its related parts function through our brain.This is a very big study related to medical science.

Now we know that the left part of human brain controls right side of the body and vice versa.For most of the human beings left side of the brain works faster than that of right side and so all our right side organs work prominently.

Now coming to the occult or secret science,human body has seven Chakras which modern science has not established.Starting from the base of the spine,it starts with Mooladhara Chakra,Swadhistana Chakra,Manipoora Chakra,Anahata Chakra,Vishuddha Chakra,Ajna Chakra and Sahsrara Chakra.Here I am not going to give all the details about these Chakras but a small and important information is that Sahasrara Chakra is controlled by Rahu.It is situated in the top,middle portion of our head inside the brain.Now who is Rahu ? It is an imaginary planet which revolves in Apasavya mode around Surya.So if this Rahu is either connected in a birth chart to 3rd house of natural zodiac or its lord Budha/Mercury,then the person will become a left hander.Even when Rahu is placed in a Rashi and Budha crosses it and stays in the next Rashi of Rahu’s placement in a chart,such person will be a left hander which means the native will work mostly through his/her left hand like writing,cooking,cleaning utensils in the kitchen etc.but eating through right hand.

Now let me try to explain how Rahu will influence  Mithuna Rashi and its Lord Budha.For a person to be left handed,Rahu has to be either in Mithuna Rashi,Karka Rashi,Simha Rashi,Tula Rashi or Dhanu Rashi.2nd point is that if Rahu is not in any of the above Rashis,then Budha must be  with or in 3rd,5th,7th or 9th from Rahu .Now let me try to analyse this theory with various examples ..

Male Chart-1 :

In this male chart,Rahu is placed in Tula Rashi and Budha is also with Rahu in Tula Rashi.Also Rahu is in trine to Mithuna Rashi.So this person is purely left hander.

Male Chart-2 :

In this chart ,Rahu is placed in Dhanu Rashi aspecting directly Mithuna Rashi in 7th house.Budha,the Lord of Mithuna Rashi is placed in Meena Rashi and both Dhanu and Meena Rashis are lorded by Guru.So there is a link between Rahu and Budha,so this male person is also a left hander.This is the chart of Sachin Tendulkar, a famous cricket player who played through his left hand only.But Budha is out of Rahu’s cusp,so this native can write through his right hand also.

Male Chart-3 :

This is another Male chart which belongs to movie star Amitabh Bacchan.Here Rahu is placed in Simha Rashi in Eastern directional sign and aspecting Mithuna Rashi which is a Western directional sign.Here the Lord of Mithuna Rashi,Budha is exalted in Kanya Rashi but retrograde,so he will be connected to Rahu also.As Budha is exalted and retrograde,this gentleman eventhough a left hander,he used to write through his  right hand also.

Male chart -4:

In this male chart,Rahu is placed in Meena Rashi and Budha retrograde is placed in Vrischika Rashi which is in trine from Rahu.So eventhough this gentleman is a left hander,he used to write through his right hand also.

Male Chart-5 :

In this male chart,Rahu is placed in Kumbha Rashi which is in trine to Mithuna Rashi.Budha,the Lord of Mithuna Rashi is placed in Dhanu Rashi aspects its own Rashi but Budha is retrograde.So the native is a left hander and eventhough Budha is retrograde,there is Rahu in Kumbha Rashi who directly aspects Makara Rashi and directionally opposite to Dhanu Rashi also.So the native was forced to write through right hand but he could not succeed.

Male Chart-6 :

In this male chart,Rahu is placed in Vrishabh Rashi but Budha is placed in his exaltation sign of Kanya Rashi.So this native is left handed.

Male Chart-7 :

In this chart,Rahu is placed in Dhanu Rashi aspecting directly Mithuna Rashi.Budha,the Lord of Mithun Rashi is in trine to Rahu.But Budha is not in his own Rashi of Mithun or in his exaltation sign but is in the Rahu-Ketu axis.So this native is a strong left hander.

Male Chart-8 :

In this male chart,Rahu is placed in Mesha Rashi and is not connected to Mithuna Rashi at all but Budha,the Lord of Mithuna Rashi is placed in Meena Rashi and is retrograde also.But the difference of longitude between Rahu and Budha is less than 30 Degrees.So this male is completely left hander.

Male Chart-9 :

This is the chart of Barack Obama.In this chart,Rahu is placed in Simha Rashi which is 11th from Mithuna Rashi.Budha,the lord of Mithuna Rashi is placed in Karka Rashi.Rahu is aspecting this Rashi and Budha and the longitudes between both the planets is less than 30 Degrees.So this native is a pure left hander.

Female Chart-1:

In this female chart,Rahu is placed in Tula Rashi which is in trine to Mithun Rashi.Budha,the Lord of Mithun Rashi is placed in Dhanu Rashi directly aspects Mithun Rashi and is in 11th from Rahu.So this female native is a left hander.But Budha is not in the cusp of Rahu,so she can write from right hand also along with other jobs.

Female Chart-2 :

This chart belongs to daughter of above female chart-1.In this chart,Rahu is placed in Mesh Rashi and will move towards Meen Rashi and Mithun Rashi is 11th from Rahu.So the effect of Rahu on this Rashi is very less due to Rahu moving in anti cloakwise direction.Budha,the Lord of Mithun Rashi is in Vrishabh Rashi which is about to move to Mithuna Rashi and is out from Rahu-Ketu axis.So when she was very young she started drawing from her left hand and because of mother’s force,she slowly started to use right hand for all her activities.

Female Chart-3 :

In this chart,Rahu is directly sitting in Mithun Rashi and Budha is placed out of Rahu-Ketu axis in Vrischik Rashi.So eventhough she is a left hander,she uses right hand also equally..

Female Chart-4:

In this female chart,Rahu is in Simha Rashi and is moving towards Mithun Rashi and he aspects directionally Mithun Rashi.Budha,the Lord of Mithun Rashi is in Vrishabh Rashi but at 0 Degrees.So Budha’s effect on its own Rashi is very less.So this female is completely left hander and takes food only from right hand.

Female Chart-5 :

In this chart,Rahu is placed in Tula Rashi and is in trine to Mithun Rashi.Budha is placed in Vrischik Rashi and is out of Rahu-Ketu axis.So eventhough she is a left hander,she also uses right hand for all day to day activities.

Female Chart -6:

This is slightly different female chart.Here Rahu is placed in Mesh Rashi which is

11th from Mithun Rashi.Budha is within Rahu-Ketu axis and is placed in Vrischik Rashi.Both Rahu and Budha are placed in Rashis lorded by Kuja.So both planets are linked with each other.Hence this female native is a left hander..

Female Chart-7 :

In this female chart,Rahu is placed in Mithun Rashi,so she is a left hander.But Budha is out of Rahu-Ketu axis and is in Vrischik Rashi.So she uses right hand for eating food.In a way,we can say that she uses both hands for her day to day work eventhough a left hander.

Female Chart-8 :

In this female chart,Rahu is placed in Vrischik Rashi and has no connections with Mithun Rashi but Budha,its lord is placed in Tula Rashi and is retrograde.The difference in the longitudes between Rahu and Budha is less than 30 Degrees.So this female child is a left hander in day to day activities but writing and eating food from right hand.This she uses both hands.

So from above different example charts,we can make it clear that Rahu’s effect on Mithun Rashi and or Budha is more important in deciding a native left hander or using both hands.The reason for this is mainly due to Budha is the Karaka for our central nervous system in the brain,and Rahu,the planet of Apasavya movement and the Karaka for Sahasrara Chakra is controlling Mithun Rashi and or Budha,the Karaka for hands.

Decoding the Energy of Nodes – The Magnificent Rahu part 2

Sri ganesaya namah

Sri Gurudev datta Jai Gurudev datta||

Article Written and Analyzed by
Arnab Mukherji
Whenever we hear the name of Rahu and Ketu. It arouses an element of fear, uncertainty, dilema or something hidden or mysterious which we fail to decipher with all our senses. Both are dreaded and yet , there is a certain amount of fascination with them and especially Rahu. But as said by the seers and experienced teachers of Jyotish, no planet is good or bad.
Maharshi VedVyas venerates Rahu as
अर्धकायं महावीर्यं चन्द्रादित्यविमर्दनम् ।
सिंहिकागर्भसम्भूतं तं राहुं प्रणमाम्यहम् ।।
Ardhakaayam Mahaaviiryam Chandraa Aditya Vimardanam
Simhikaagarbha Sambhuutam Tam Rahu Pranamaamyaham
The above slokha / mantra is given by Maharshi VedVyas and the meaning is one who is half bodied and possesses great courage with the attribute of being a warrior supreme or one who is filled with Veera rasa and one who is capable to outshine,outwit and dominate Surya and Chandra ,one who is born from the womb of Simhika, to him we offer our salutations.
In jyotish scriptures and in various other pagan culture, snakes have been associated with devil or demons but in our vedic shastra, we venerate snakes as they are associated with primordial deities. Primafacie, Snakes do have something to do with mysticism and occult.
Lord Visnu sleeps of the bed of Anath Shesh Nag, Mahadev has Nagraj around his neck, the snakes form as the bracelets, bangles of Mahavidya Tara, Mahishasur Mardini Durga has a snake with her. So snakes represented by nodes do have some divinity associated with them.
Do nodes and especially Rahu really possesses such a shakti.
After going through the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata, the 2 incidents may justify such a veneration for nodes and especially Rahu.
Coming back to the topic of Rahu & Ketu both representing sarpa and nagas. The element of surprise and shock is so common occurrence when they show their influence.
The avatars represented by Surya is Lord Maryada Purushottam Sri Rama and that by Chandra is Chandravanshi Vasudev Sri Krishna.
In Ramayana , Meghnad was the husband of Sulochana – the naga princess and had used the NagPasha on both Sri Rama (Surya) and Lakshmana. Although for a moment, the supreme among warriors was unconscious and almost on the verge of no return till Hanumana – incarnation of Rudra (Mars) came to their aid by bringing Garuda to their rescue.
The 2nd incident is from Karna parva of Mahabharata where ruler of Anga desh – Karna was engaged in a fearsome battle with his sworn enemy Arjuna. It is at this juncture , Karna decided to use NagaAstra, although ashwasena (snake from khandavana) had mounted on it without Karna’s knowledge. Yet this arrow was so lethal that it was capable to decapitate arjuna’s head. The weapon had startled Arjuna who could not react and was sure to meet his death ,had Sri Krsna not intervened to forcefully sink the wheel of chariot in the ground. The shaft of the arrow missed arjuna’s head and instead hit his celestial crown. In spite of the presence of Sri Krsna the almighty , the nodes did surprise the mortal warrior.
The above 2 incidents do hint at something. I leave it to the readers to form their views.
I conclude my small post by saying that Rahu Ketu can create havoc through their manipulation and occurrence of sudden events which are unexpected and cannot be understood easily. Their power – shakti can disturb most calm – composed minds and personalities and yet both the planets are an ocean of untapped potential and impossible – unconventional knowledge which is hidden and only known to yogis and siddhas. Had it not been the case, why would be it a tradition in our culture to dedicate time in eclipses to mantra and spiritual practices. During eclipses, all external form of worship is stopped and the temples are closed but is it not worth pondering that internal worship is encouraged by mantra, dhyana, homa..
Interestingly, one of the mantra beeja which is used for Rahu is exactly the same which is used to invoke Smashan Bhairava.
I reiterate my statement that Rahu Ketu – nodes are neither positive nor negative but mere agents to deliver the fruits of our own actions.
The delivery method may at times be little challenging. Jai Mahakaal.
( Just my observation and understanding – Thank you)

Understanding Devguru Bṛhaspati Based on Puranic Stories – Part 1

 

 

|| Brihaspati (Guru) Navagraha Mantra ||

Devaanaam Cha Risheenaam Cha Gurum Kaanchana Sannibham
Buddhibhootam Trilokesham Tam Namaami Brihaspateem

|| Vedic Mantras of Guru ||

Om Brihaspate Ati Yadaryo Arhaad Dyumdwibhaati Kratumajjaneshu Yaddeedayachhvas Ritprajaat Tadasmaasu Dravinam Dhehi Chitram

 

Meaning: I bow down to Brihaspathi who is the teacher of Gods and sages, who is resplendent and lustrous like burnished gold and who is endowed with a lot of wisdom and who is the lord of the three worlds.

Brihaspati or Guru (Jupiter) Origination Brahmaa’s one of the 10 Maanas Putra was Angiraa. Angiraa was married to Shraddha – one of the 9 daughters of Kardam Rishi and had three sons – Utathya, Brihaspati and Samvart. Where Shukra (Venus) is a Braahman and follows Bhrigu’s (another Maanas Putra of Brahmaa) lineage, Brihaspati (Jupiter) is also a Braahman and follows Angiraa’s lineage.

He has a strange story of his birth. Angira’s wife Shraddha, who was another creation of Brahma, was unfaithful to her husband during her pregnancy and as a result, she gave birth to a stillborn child. However, she repented for her mistake and was able to regain the favour of Angiraa. Angiraa then gave life to the child, who was then named Brihaspati.

Brihaspati had two wives – Shubh and Taaraa. His first wife Shubh gave birth to 7 daughters – Bhaanumatee, Raakaa, Archishmatee, Mahaamatee, Mahishmatee, Sineevaalee, and Havishmatee; his second wife Taaraa gave birth to 7 sons and one daughter.

He had two sons from his brother Utathya’s wife Mamataa also – Kach and Bharadwaaj. When he had Mamataa, Mamataa was already pregnant. As he tried to impregnate her, her child in her womb protested, but Brihaspati cursed him for his objection that he should be born with utter darkness. That child was Deerghtamaa who was born blind just because of Brihaspati’s Shaap. Brihaspati’s own child was Bharadwaaj who was immediately born. Both Brihaspati and Mamataa did not take care of the child so they abandoned him there only. Maruts found him, named him as Bharadwaaj, and brought him up. He was later adopted by King Dushyant.

Brihaspati attained his position as the preceptor of the Devtaa by performing penances on the banks of Prabhaas Teerth. Lord Shiv granted him this position, as well as his position as one of the Nava Grahas (nine planets).

In the Bhagavad Geetea, Shree Krishn teaches that among the priests, He is Brihaspati, that shows that He addresses Brihaspati as the highest, and proves that Brihaspati is like Bhagavaan Himself.

The representative of Guru (Jupiter) was a very jovial and intelligent man. After Budh’s Pandit sat down after delivering his speech, he got up and started – “O Highness, One main reason of Guru’s greatness over Budh is that Budh is two-faced – a true politician. He gives auspicious results when he conjoins with benefic planets; but when he joins malefic planets, he himself becomes malefic. Thus he is not reliable. He is like him in whose company he is. Guru is far more superior in this respect. He is the greatest benefic planet among all the nine planets; and acts as a malefic only under unusual circumstances. He is the Guru of Devtaa, Indra and other celestials respects him, obey him, and follow his counsel. Those who worship Jupiter regularly and sincerely can achieve their all kinds of desires. His wisdom is extraordinarily profound.

He is fond of sweets and he wears yellow clothes and yellow flowers. He is well-versed all all Ved and expert in all forms of human knowledge. He possesses all virtues, is modest, forgiving and happy. His mind and senses are disciplined. His metal is gold and gem is topaz. He is the Lord of fat in the body, North-east direction, Thursday, and of the constellations (Dhanu (Sagittarius) and Meen (Pisces). He is the Guru of immortals, the Lord of speech and is worthy of worship.

He is the son of Angiraa (Brahmaa’s one of 10 brain children.How Angiraa was born? He has a strange story of his birth. Once Brahmaa Jee grew passionate for some Apsaraa and lost his seed. He put it into fire and from that fire these 10 children were born. Angiraa was born directly from live coals that is why he is called Angiraa (Angaaraa). It was this Angiraa’s curse to Punjikaasthalee Apsaraa that mighty Hanumaan was born to her.

Angiraa’s wife’s name was Shraddhaa (one of the nine daughters of Kardam Rishi) and they had 8 sons including Brihaspati. Some call Brihaspati the son of Fire because he was born form Agni Dev (Fire god) and is incarnation of Fire. Brihaspati did severe Tap for Shiv Jee and got the position of the Guru (teacher) of celestials and a planet from him. Since then he got busy in advancing the plans of Devtaas.

Bṛhaspati (Sanskrit: बृहस्पति, often written as Brihaspati) is a Vedic era sage and spiritual master of the demigods’ councils also called as Guru and in (Sanskrit, it means lord of prayer or devotion”) ,or also called as the Deva-guru (Guru of the Gods).

Worship of Jupiter results in progeny, good education, valour, longevity of life and recovery from physical illness. In the Zodiac. He is the Lord of Dhanus and Meena. Guru stays for one year in each Rasi, taking 12 years to complete the cycle.

Who is Brihaspati or Guru Graha

He is considered the personification of piety and religion, and the chief ‘offerer of prayers and sacrifices to the gods’ (Sanskrit: Purohita), with whom he intercedes on behalf of humankind.

The season associated with him is winter (snow), direction is north-east and element is ether or space.

Guru in Vedic astrology is considered to be of the element ether (space) or Aakaash Tattwa (Aakaash = Space/Sky/Aether; Tattwa = Essence/Category/Truth). This indicates vastness, growth and expansion in a person’s horoscope and life. Brihaspati also represents the balance of past Karm, religion, philosophy, knowledge and issues relating to offspring. He is concerned with education, teaching and the dispensation of knowledge. Humans with Jupiter dominating in their horoscope could grow fat as life progresses and their empire and prosperity increases; and diabetes is an ailment directly related to Jupiter.

He represents wisdom, benevolence and philosophy. His most favored position in a chart is 1st House, but he does well both in the Kendra and Angles and the auspicious Trikon Houses. As a benefic planet, he reaches full maturity at the earliest of the Nine Grahas – at the age of 16.

Worship of Brihaspati results in a cure for ailments affecting the stomach and helps one to ward off his sins, helps him in gaining strength, valor and longevity etc. He grants the boon of fatherhood to the childless, and good education. He should be worshipped on Thursdays. The following story goes whenever he is worshipped —
