Part 2

These two-Jupiter and Moon are positive planets which have to be taken care of for augmenting one’s popularity, the infliction of Rahu and Ketu is dreaded because they act in an adverse way. Rahu and Ketu have to be watched as karmic planets which implied that there has been something in the past lives of the person which necessitated this infliction. Therefore they have to be treated very carefully. Rahu creates stigma, mistrust, depression, failure, inability to express the good of others. Such persons whose psychological orientation is coloured by Rahu can not ordinarily see the goodness in others. Whatever their merit, Rahu would see that the good deeds of the persons are veiled from the sight of others and therefore there does not arise any question of getting the reward of their good deeds. These merits would simply not be known. To obviate this unfortunate condition, one has to propitiate Rahu which by itself is very difficult and it can be done in several ways. One of the easiest, and surest way of remedying Rahu’s infliction (apart from gem therapy, mantras, and other Tantras)is to control one’s tongue. When one begins to control one’s speech, one begins to propitiate Rahu.

Ketu is very different from Rahu. It is also a significator of Karmic results but in this case it is not always humiliation, or disappointment. For the outside world, this planet would make the person known widely but within himself he would feel small. It is a planet which is very much positive in the sense that it brings result on its own, not because of its association. Thus if someone has Ketu related to his ninth, tenth, or ascendant, he would be widely known; people would have higher estimate than what he himself has of himself.

These general principles can be better tested if we examine their efficacy in relation to certain known cases. Let us take the case of Gautama Budha. Dr. B. V. Raman has given the natal chart of Gautama Budha as follows (Chart I): Gautama Budha was a Cancer Ascendant native with the lord of Ascendant Moon in fourth house aspecting the tenth house and the lord of the ninth house.

Jupiter’s association with Saturn has greatly eliminated the malefic effect of this planet. Rahu relegated in the twelfth house does not have any material karmic bondage which could dim his glory. Ketu has his life very introspective as far human relationship is concerned. Jovian aspect on Ketu has further turned Ketu into a beneficial planet. Thus we find that the first, ninth and tenth houses and the impact of Jupiter, Moon, Rahu and Ketu have made popularity and glory uncontaminated.

The second chart (Chart II) is of Dr. Albert Einstein. Here also we find exceptional combinations for great popularity and renown. Ascendant lord Mercury is posited in the tenth house, a house of Jupiter and the lord of the tenth is Jupiter which is itself placed in the ninth house. From the ninth house it aspects the ascendant thus protecting the individual from any untoward incident and making his personality and his personal life free from any ill-will. The Jovian protection, to a great extent, protected him from Hitler and never his personal integrity was at stake. Rahu in eighth house in the Jovian sign made him very despondent about the misuse of his scientific investigations. Because of Moon’s position, and of Rahu’s, Albert Einstein had been able to get full credit for all that he was capable of.

Chart III belongs to Dr. Rajendra Prasad. Undoubtedly from all available information, he was a very capable person, and his sacrifices and services for the nation had been outstanding. His personal integrity, and his thoroughness in doing any work entrusted to him were widely acclaimed to be a very high order. But his popularity has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
