Slow Growth and Frequent breaks in Jobs – why? Some 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

Government Employment: Sun and Moon in the 10th house, Saturn and Sun (anywhere – service with pitfalls). Sun with Jupiter gives position in judiciary which includes profession of an Advocate. 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.

Professions involve lot of traveling-Marking-Saturn with Moon, Artistic bent of mind, Smuggling, cheating tendency, Business/ profession relating to earth and water (mud, bricks, water etc.)

Earning with obstacles: Saturn and Mars combination. The native earns by telling a lie if the combination is in 11th house. However, much earning is indicated including acquisition of land building if this combination is aspected by Venus/ Jupiter.

  • Retrograde Mars in Lagan and Retrograde Saturn in 4th house.
  • Mars with Saturn and Rahu-Factory/ Industry with break in career.
  • 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.

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

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 Mool-trikona signs.
