Slow Growth and Frequent breaks in Jobs – why? Article about good and bad astrological combinations!

Many a times, people come to me and ask questions about their career growth. It is but obvious that if the person who wants to know about his career must not be a happy person where he or she is working. Also, people who are very inquisitive to explore the horoscope's planets which are linked with their career or business, must be putting their 100% in their work but not getting suitable packages or reverence at their workplaces.  

Here, I’m going to mention the broad indication for professionals by each Planet, Sign and Nakshtra when more than one planet is associated together in one sign or house, It may be mentioned that these combinations must not be applied blindly as they are modified by their strengths/weaknesses and both aspects of other planets. Benefic and Malefic aspect would trouble the native on various steps of life weather it is business, any profession or service.
Below are some specific combinations

With Mercury, Venus and Jupiter (Retrograde), (12th house) – the native had a high position in Government employment, the Sun in 11th house, because of Mars and Ketu (8th house), the native had to lead a miserable life with constant disputes in service and also quarrels with his superiors.

  2. Mars with Saturn and Rahu-Factory/ Industry with break in career.
  3. Saturn, Ketu and Mars – displacement in career by legal disputes.

Professions relating to trade, writing law, authorship etc:- Saturn and Mercury, Juipter involvement would give the needed intelligence and ability. Venus and Jupiter gives professional respect and copious money – also money lending/ banking profession and connected professions.

Venus, Saturn with Mercury: Independent business after the age of 30 years or so.

Banking, money lending, finance companies: Saturn and Venus – luxurious profession. Banker, accountants, money lending business. Also for property dealers (real estate agents).

Subordination position: Saturn with Rahu. If Jupiter/Venus are involved, promotion after initial subordination. Also masking abilities and Joker – including fraudulent/cheaters. Posing as what he is not i.e. posing as CBI officer etc come under this combination

Lawyers/ Advocates etc.
  1. Mercury and Ketu but with Saturn and Ketu, native may not get the expected fruits of labor.
  2. Jupiter and the Moon- rather Jupiter alone and well placed is capable of making a lawyer.
  3. Jupiter with Mars specially in 2nd house makes the native criminal lawyer specially when the Sun is in the 10th house.

Inherited business or father's professions!

For surgeons look at the position of Mars specially in 6th/ 10th houses in Aries/ Scorpio.

Teacher: The Sun, the Moon and the Lagna normally fall in Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius. The Lagna and ninth house are found to be active alone with the 5th house.

Now a mention is made about more beneficial yogas connected with professions of the native. The native is considered to be fortunate when born with Vargothama position i.e. same sign in rasi and navamasha.

Planets placed in angles (kendras) occupying their own signs or Moola trikona signs are called 'Karakas' with respect to each other. One of these planets in the 10th house merits special consideration.

The existences of Pancha Mahapurusha Yogas are equally important for professional rise. The Panache Maha-pusha yogas are respectively Ruchaka, Bhadra, Hamsa, Malavya ans Sasa Yogas. They are caused respectively by Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn when these planets happen to occupy Kendras (angles) houses, identical with their own signs exaltation signs or Mooltrikona signs.

How is your Sex Life? Is Planet Venus weak in your Horoscope? Boost it...

Venus is the known planet of love, romance, beauty, sex and it would be apt to say that it governs all matters relating to sex which come under the domain of Venus. Even for the secret organs and external organs for sexual enjoyment, the role of Venus must be taken into account.

Planet Venus owns two signs in the Zodiac i.e. Taurus and Libra connected with love, creativity, affection and beauty. Venus stand for connected matters such as women, wife or husband, youth and pride, beauty, dancing, happiness from wife or husband, precious stones (being presented by lovers), love for humor (romantic nature), soft and tender beauty, pleasant movements (lovers walking together, possessing (friendship) with many women, indulgence in amorous sports, attachment to all matters of sex including pictures, black-beautiful hair, an awareness about the genital organs and the secrets connected with them.

Without discussing various properties of Venus, her signs and Nakshatras, it would be apt to discuss all about your passions, emotions for sensual pleasures and why one gets to seek such type of pleasures, even by force, i.e. rape, molestation, etc. Among the planets, actually all planets, including the Nodes of the Moon have a say in the matter but prominent mention is made for Venus, Mars, Moon, and Saturn/Rahu. The placement of Venus in a particular sign/nakshtra/house etc. would make the difference as what kind of emotions the native would have. With the involvement of Jupiter in any manner, the native would handle all such sexual affairs with wisdom and intelligence and it has been noticed that the Sun and Venus together, especially in Lagna speak of skilled adultery’ i.e. the involvement of the parties secretly irrespective of the position one may hold.

For judging the emotional part and to what extent one is passionate, look for the Moon and how it is afflicted by Rahu/Saturn/Mars and via-a-is the involvement of Venus. The person can be important and may have no passions on account of the heavy involvement of Saturn and this topic of impotency may need a separate discussion. So we have forged’ type of ladies i.e. females having no passions at all and we attribute to planets.

Now are examined briefly what the Venus has to say in houses from Lagna to 12th of your horoscope. You can yourself check the magnitude of your inclination for sex. You please note that the astrology-the divine science has answers for all your problems-from womb to tomb.

 Venus in Lagna (Ist house) is capable of giving a shapely body, you are likely to associate with high-profile society persons, you are capable of enjoying the company of pretty and young women (where Saturn is involved, you may have associated with women elder in age to you). Thus the natives born with Venus in Lagna are considered sexy through the position would be modified with regard to the sign in which Lagna rises. Actually, this aspect becomes strong if Venus rises in Aries or Libra in Lagna. Early marriage is indicated if aspected by Mars and if this Venus is aspected by Saturn, the marriage may be delayed.

Venus in the 2nd house makes the native handsome and dressed in colorful attire. Desire and passion for sexy women is indicated, the native is learned and amorous, gains through social affairs including by association of women. This Venus if with Mars speak of impulsiveness, carelessness and extravagance Venus in masculine signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) may enable the native to have unnatural sexual relations – perverted sex.

Venus in 3rd house indicates weakness for comely women, enjoys wealth and also spend on women, takes journeys for pleasures and social affairs. Must take Care of losses from the business.

Venus in 4th house indicates pleasure and displeasure from the persons who get associated with the native. He is lustful and wants a variety of enjoyment and will have a beautiful wife and if afflicted can give loss through a life of luxury (pomp and show). Venus of Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn or Pisces can give the 2nd wife or an extra-marital affair.

Venus of 5th house may not give the needed energy and vigor. Very sexy nature is indicated and the partner may also be sexy. Disappointment in love affairs, including scandals if afflicted by Saturn. Depending on the position of the 10th house and 10th lord, the native may remain unsettled upto 36 years.
Venus of the 6th house, specially, if debilitated, indicate strife and enmity. Suffering of women and sexual affairs. Venus of Taurus or Libra or Pisces speak of cheerful exposition and also of over-indulgence creating health problems later in life.

An important position is indicated by the Venus in the 7th house of your horoscope. The native gets comely and trustworthy wife. The native is sensuous and amorous-easy going and chances of settlement in foreign countries become bright. It has been seen that there are afflictions, the native gets maximum pleasure from wife and if Venus is in any way associated with Mercury, more than one wife or extra-marital relations relations are indicated.

The position of Venus in the 8th house is not good. Some persons become a victim from their spouse and heavy affliction can prompt the wife with 8th house Venus to get killed her husband. Mutual strife is indicated if Venus is in Gemini or Scorpio. Diseases connected with sex, including urinary troubles are indicated. Amours habits, unnatural gratifications, adulterous nature also indicated.

Venus in 9th house gives simple and contented living with the knowledge of Shastras. Gifts/royal favors specially for women and the native gets sexual pleasure and the native is fond of colorful dress. Depending on the sign, the native may have sex with all types of ladies including at religious places and he may not spare even his own dear and near relations.

Venus in 10th house gives sex pleasure, respect, wealth and reputation. Known for all round wisdom, some gets recognition from the Government and may be associated with women fond of music an art. Enjoys all activities of women and with Venus in a masculine sign, the native may not marry or may marry late in life. Afflicted Venus gives unnatural relations with women.

Venus in 11th house is more sensors and the native is bound to have extra-marital relations, especially when the Venus is aspected by Saturn/Mars/Rahu. Though the native may become a well-read person (scholar) but he cannot escape the fury of Venus to go in for sex with other women or seek their company. Some harm/loss is also indicated on account of a person running for six’. Links with society girls (immoral) are also indicated.

Venus of 12th house is equally capable of giving bed-pleasure-both at home and outside. The native’s own wife is prosperous and impressive, though some of the natives may have a dominating wife. Venus in this position indicates a love for new romantic ventures, ad advances to all women the native may come in touch. Afflicted Venus of 12th house may create some problems, including unsullied relations with the opposite sex. But Venus in this position is Rajyoga cake for Capricorn and Aquarius Lagna person, Dancing, singing, poetry, painting etc. become a specially apart from film line and thus the native shall get more women in the company.
If Venus and Saturn are both weak and are placed in 6th/8th/12th houses from each other, the native gets sexual happiness, especially in their periods/major periods or sub-periods. Even if one planet owns a beneficial and the other owns a malefic still auspicious results are expected. In the horoscope given here, the native inherited huge property, a press having a daily, weekly and monthly newspapers from his in-laws. This all happened in the major period of Venus-Venus, who owns the 8th house and Jupiter aspect of the 6th house.

Marriage is an emotional partnership with physical over-tone, as such though in business partnership, people are together over a professional pursuit. The native born business partnership, people is together over a professional pursuit. The native born with Mars trine Saturn may relax the whole afternoon with his feet on the desk, but pulling ideas passing on to his partner for execution i.e. the native born with Mars opposed to Saturn.

Perverted sex includes the other flesh trade’ – See Hindustan Times dated 27th November, 1999. Mars-Venus compel persons to go in for perverted sex and also to get to prostitutes irrespective of the position one hold. It was noted that in Delhi, there are 50 odd male brothers – gay prostitutes earn from Rs. 300 to Rs. 6000/- per hour. Even this type of earning and that of cheating/smuggling also come under the ambit of Astrology.

Among various cases reported in various News papers, it would suffice to refer News Item in the Hindustan Times dated 24th September, 2003 when a Doctor (52 years) raped 15 year old patient in his clinic and was arrested.

In India, there are many theories and some innovative methods are being used to understand about the person's past and future. To assess the horoscope on the basis of birth details comes under astrology, which is the ancient Indian teachings through Occult Science.

Marine Science, not frequently used these days, but one of the best ancient Indian technique. It is very effective from these ancient methods. Marine Science, under which the person's body language, body texture and physical marks can be evaluated, it can be ascertained the person's future and present.

Acharya Dundhiraj, the creator of the Jatak Bharana script, had said that the lines of hands and feet are quite obvious at the time of the birth of the person whose circumstances are made in the state of Raj-Yoga. If any royal eye (visible mark) of any kind on the right Hand or Leg of men and on the left hand or Leg of any woman, then the life will be exceptionally prosperous.

According to Maharishi Samudra (Seas), who composed the maritime scriptures, if the mark of a curb, coil or chakra in the person's feet, he represents the nation while holding a high position.

Will Legal Profession Suits to Your Horoscope?

Generally, astrologers are of the opinion that the 2nd house must be strong for lawyers. The 2nd deals with speech and expression of points of view. However, this sounds unconvincing since many professions need clear speech. For example, legislators, actors, salesmen etc. As such, mere disposition of the 2nd house and its lord in strength is no passport to successful legal career.

However, classical work have given the portfolio of legal profession to Mercury and judge’s post to Jupiter. Irrespective of other factors, a good disposition of financial factors and a strong disposition of Mercury can give one a prosperous legal career.

Again Dasa Bhuktis, commonly called directional influences, must operate during the lifetime. Otherwise, prosperity will be fulfilled in dreams and thoughts.

Under the legal profession, we have two major divisions, viz., civil and criminal suits. For civil suits, Mercury must be strong preferably associated with Jupiter or related to him. Mars-Mercury association produces eminent criminal lawyers. Mars-Venus-Mercury produces romantic lawyers.

Let us have analyse a few charts. For one to have elevation to the Bench, a strong disposition of the 10th house, its lord and Jupiter is necessary. From Munsiff Court to Supreme Court, it is an elevation, and hence there is a vast difference. Much discretion is necessary in anticipating the results of the above combinations. Depending upon the strength of Jupiter, the level of the post must be determined.

This  is the horoscope of a young lawyer, aged about 36 years. He has been in the profession for the last 10 years and still continues to struggle. He is determinedly fighting against heavy odds.

Before we actually analyse the legal aspect, we shall briefly see the 10th house factors. Here the 10th lord, Venus, is in the 12th house and the 1st bhava. The conclusion is success after much struggles. The 10th house is aspected by Jupiter, lord of the 5th and the 8th. But the aspect is very feeble as the orb of balance distance is more than 20 degree. From the Moon, the 10th lord is considerably fortified as he is conjunct Venus, Mercury and Jupiter, who form a powerful Adhi-Yoga and the results will be felt during the periods of Kethu-Venus. As such, the professional status will be built up considerably.
Mercury is lord of the 2nd and the 11th, both having references to finance and hence he gets dignified. More so, he is in the Ascendant enjoying digbala or directional strength. From the Moon, Mercury has formed Adhi Yoga and hence is fortified.

As such, the native is likely to be a successful lawyer. Till 1979, he will be having Mercury’s period to be followed by Kethu and Venus. Mercury though in the Ascendant, occupies the constellation of Kethu, who is not only in the 12th but also in the 12th from Mercury and hence most of the results have been choked.

Again Mercury is aspected by Saturn who is in a state of retrogression and also by the Moon, the 12th lord. Hence, till Mercury’s period, the native will have ordinary practice; however, after 1973, the practice will be built up much during Venus’ period. Kethu may offer him the post of a sub-judge and during Venus’ period the native is likely to be elevated to the Bench. Venus has formed Adhi Yoga and from the Moon he is a Yogakaraka.
This is also the horoscope of another lawyer. His practice is ordinary though he has about 15 years experience in the Bar. Analysing the 10th house, we find that the 5th lord, Mars, is in the 10th and Jupiter is in the 9th bhava. Mars is enjoying directional strength. The 10th lord, Mercury is in the 8th conjunct the 9th lord, the Sun. Hence he is blemished. From the Moon, he caused Adhi Yoga and derives considerable strength.

Till his 41st year, he will be having Mercury’s period to be followed by Kethu and Venus. Ketu has to reflect the results of the Sun who in turn is in the 8th and hence blemished. The 10th lord, Mercury, is well placed from the Moon and the planet of justice, Jupiter, I in an angle from the Moon. As such, the native will have his prosperity by elevation to the Bench. Till that time, his practice will be ordinary. Elevation to the Bench is likely during Venus’s major period and in the sub period of Mars. This will be around his 52nd or 53rd year.

In these cases, we have seen that the prosperity is choked for lack of directional influences. Here the 2nd lord Saturn is in the 2nd. The 11th lord Venus is in the 9th. The 9th lord is in the 8th. But for the 9th lord, the other financial factors are well disposed indicating affluence and prosperity. But actually, the native is having only ordinary income and this is clearly explained by the fact that the periods have choked the results. However, here also Venus will be the best part of his career.

Note that though Saturn as the 2nd lord is in the 2nd, still he cannot give good finance as he is in a state of retrogression allowing a free outlet for the income.

Generally, a good disposition of Mercury coupled with favourable financial factors and operation of such periods make for successful and prosperous lawyers.

What Maha-Mrityunjaya Chant do?

The deity one worships is also known, among other matters of life, from the Birth Chart. A look at the birth chart would indicate the position of Lagna Lord, Jupiter, 5th Lord and 9th Lord. All these factors combined with aspect of the Lagna Lord, 5th Lord and 9th Lord and by these planets on each other does help in knowing the spiritual- cum- religious bent of mind of the native. Further, persons born with Jupiter in 5th house or 9th house automatically get to the worship of Lord Shiva in one form or the other. Some say that Jupiter in Lagna also gives the same bent of mind and the natives get the institutive powers. Without multiplying the astrological principles, the delineation and analysis of the Mantra of Lord Shiva would be helpful for all to know the inbuilt strength in the Mantra and how it is useful in every walk of life. 

2. Recitation of Mantra has come to us from ancient times and the power of a Mantra as laid down in Vedas, Tantra Shastras and other scriptures is well known. Rather, it would be apt to say that taking refuge in Mantras has come to stay as a way of life. Mantra be small or it may be a big and the smallest. The smallest and single but very powerful word is ‘Aum’, and small mantra can be ‘Om Nama Shivaye’, Little lengthy Mantra can be Maha Mritunjaya Mantra or Gayatri Mantra and still we have more lengthy mantras of Lord Ganesha and other divine forces.

3. Mantras have been recognized as one of the efficacious means to invoke the blessing of a specifics deity and the results achieved have to be with the devotion of the native concerned (Sadhaka’s devotion) and I would like to say that if a Mantra is recited without expecting any reward, the result would be more beneficial and automatic.

4. Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra can overcome untimely death- rather it can help the native to come out of the jaws of death and also to get rid of death- like troubles. In addition, recitation of this Mantra can help the native to get all things including getting children, prosperity in business or profession, in getting happy married life, getting union of the separated couples if they show the intention for re- union, victory over enemies, getting favorable judgments in litigation and all matters troubling the native from womb to tomb.

5. It has been seen that some people, short of enlightenment, question the validity of this Mantra but in my opinion they have not honestly tried this Mantra with the needed devotion or they have not come in contact with genuine persons who could give guidance. Mantras are not more letters or group of letter but they have the divine force in their vibrations when recited. Lord Shiva himself said in ‘Chandi Vidhana’. 

This means “He is the meanest of men who states that (the idol of) Chandi (a synonym of Sakthi or Parvathi, Lord Siva’s consort) is simply made of mind, Rudra Yamala is simply a book , and Mantras are simply a conglomeration of letter or characters.”

6. Here it is considered apt to refer to an episode in Shiva Puran in the context of Lord Shiva’s Mantra. Sage Dadhicha was struck by king Kshuva by his thunderbold. The broken limbs were joined by Sukra on invocation by the sage and having performed penance by reciting Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, the sage got three booms, immunity from death and absence of distress.

7. On the basis of material published in various books aaabout this Mantra, it is stated that Mahamrityunjaya Mantra consisting of 62 syllables was given to Sukra by Lord Shiva. This Mntra is as under:

Om Haum Om Jum Om Sah Om Bhooh Om Bhuvah Om Svah,
Om Trayambakam Yajaamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam,
Urvaarukamiva Bandhanaan Mrityor Mukshee ya Maamritat,
Om Svah Om Bhuvah Om Bhooh Om Sah Om Jum Om Haum Om.

8. Maha Mritunjaya Mantra from Yajur Veda consist of 33 syllables and this Mantra as obtained from Yajur Veda in the following from is popularly recited by devotes of Lord Shiva and others:

Om Trayambakam Yajaamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam,
Urvaarukamiva Bandhanaan Mrityor Mukshee ya Maamritat.

9. In certain old texts including Prasara Hora, recitation of Mantra had been recommended for overcoming the bad and malefic effects of planets in their period i.e. Dasa. The effect of each malefic and even benefic would depend on the horoscope. Thus there is need to see the totality of the horoscope and its malefic content on account of signs, planets, strength of planets, how planets improve their position in divisional charts specially in Nnvamsa and Dasamasa.

10. The important point which need consideration is as to when one should commence recitation of Mritunjaya Mantra. It will be effective if one chooses to commence recitation on the day of one’s birth star or the 10th star or the 19th star. Regarding as to how many times, Mantra need to be recited, there is difference of opinion. Deva Karalam in his Chandra Kala Nadi has suggested recitation of this mantra one crore (ten million times) recitation of this Mantra to get rid of killer diseases and also overcome the danger of untimely death. Other have suggestion recitation of one Lakh, one lakh twenty five thousands and the minimum suggestion is to recite this Mantra 108 (one hundred eight) times. However, in view of modern times and less time available with the native, one can start recitation of Mantra 11 times, 21 times, 51 times, and so on though every person can spare time if he has the intention to do.

11. The place for recitation of Mantra is equally important. Preferably the Mantra should be done in a temple particularly dedicated to Lord Shiva. In the alternative, the place to be selected should be a clean spot or holy premises and the place to place so selected is called ‘Divya Desa’. Further, the place should be pure with calm surroundings. The Mantra of Lord Shiva recited before ‘Shivalinga’ or other image of Lord Shiva can give the results in a short span of time.

12. The native should start recitation of this Mantra after prayer to Lord Ganesha- the remover of all obstacles so that no obstacle is faced while starting and during the course of recitation of this Mantra.

13. The timings for recitation of this Mantra should be regularly and not haphazard manner though in the modern times native has to be permitted to recite this Mantra any time any where even shale in office during his spare time. What is needed is the devotion of the native in reciting this Mantra.

14. Normally, Brahama Mahurta i.e. at about 4.00 A.M. is considered beneficial for the recitation of this Mantra. Then at the time of Sun- rise when the native should be free after morning ablutions. The native should not sit on the plain floor as the vibrations produced from the Mantra shall be lost. However, the Mantra can be recited while walking or when the native is having some free time and free mind even while in office. In other words, the native becomes devoted and he can constantly go on reciting this Mantra to be termed as ‘Ajay Japa’.

15. The native should, before starting the Mantra, should lit ghee-lamp (Diya) to the deity and invoke Lord Shiva through this Mantra. The Lord- conquer of death, has three eyes i.e. the Sun, the Moon and the Fire.

16. The number of recitation of the Mantra should be uniform and should not be different on different days. One can start even with number 11 or so and this minimum should be done daily to the extent possible. Then the number of recitation can be increased. The native should lead a strict disciplined life in all manners during the period of recitation as per scheduled programme for this Mantra.

17. Sages have explained the inherent meaning of this auspicious Mantra and some meanings of the words of this Mantra are as under:

i) ‘Tryambakam’ denotes one under whose reign exist three mothers Creators of the Universe i.e. Ichcha Sakti, Kriya Sakti and Gnama Sakti.

ii) ‘Aum’ consisting of three syllables are also three eyes of Lord Shiva.

iii) ‘Sugandhim’ - lord instills auspiciousness everwhere.

iv) ‘Puahti Vardhanam- Lord endowed with the power of increasing ‘Pushti’- strength and potency. It also means Lakshmi.

v) ‘Yajaamahe’ means that the devotee surrenders himself to the Lord ‘Yagya’ is a sacrifice offered to the relevant deity with a specific vow.

vi) ‘Mukshee - ya’ - Ma Amritaat- With recitation of this Mantra, the native shall establish a relationship with the Lord and if once with the Lord, the relationship may not be broken.

18. Mantra of Lord Shiva is also connected with energies of the Lord- direction- wise:

East -   Energy following from East is called Ambika (Trayamabakam Yajaamahe)
South - Energy following from South is called VAAMA (Sugandhim Pushthivardhanam)
West -  Energy following from West is called Lord Mahadeva (Urvaarukmiva Bandhanan)
North - Energy following from North is called Draupadi of Lord Sanjeevaneesa. (Muksheeya Maamaritat).

19. As is known, the Mantra is in two lines. The first line introduces Lord Shiva along with Gauri placed in the right leg of the native. The 2nd line introduces Lord Vyapinesa (Shiva) located in the kept leg of the native. The two lines combined in the entire Mantra denote Lord Shiva as Sarvaakhyesa in the company of his energy called ‘Anaakhya’ spread all-over the body.

20. Mahamritunjaya Mantra is the most auspicious Mantra as per Vedas. Daily recitation of this Mantra alone is sufficient to ward off all evils and curses and has the divine strength to save the native from all difficulities and hurdles of life. The devoted recitation of this Mantra bestows health, wealth and power and also saves the native from ‘akal mrityu’ or untimely death. This mantra is also known as Amrit Sanjivani Nidhya Mantra. For attaining ‘Vidya’ (education), and also for fulfillment of other desires, recite the Mantra while pouring sweetened milk on Shiva Lagna.

21. If you want to recite Mantra, of Lord Shiva or to do any other remedy via Mantra, it is suggested that in Hindu Shastras, remedy should be carried out for a minimum of 40 days and maximum for 43 days continuously. Recitation should be carried preferably between sunrise and sunset and should be started on an auspicious day. Recitation should be done by others though in the case of a sick person, recitation may be done by others.

22. I shall be obliged if the readers may throw more light on the meaning and characteristics of the Mantra of Lord Shiva. The Mantra had been accepted as universal panacea for all diseases and to over- come all obstacles in life.
