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.
