Planetary combinations for an astrologer

By Kshitij Sharma, September 6, 2009

Author: Bijesh Menon

Ever since the era of great astrologer Dr. B. V. Raman, lots of people from the educated society have started developing interest in the field of astrology, unlike in the past when astrology was monopolized by a few, those who came from the families with astrological backgrounds or from some certain casts, with rare exceptions. The new trend in astrology have enriched the subject by the means of research and studies under taken by the new generation though subject to criticism on occasions for deviating from the traditional path in small or large way. I have made an attempt to write an article on the same. I consider myself as a student of astrology and have only a little knowledge to my credit till date. So I make apologies in advance to the readers, if I make any mistakes in writing this article which is based on the findings of my humble experience in astrology.

Introduction
Before starting with the planetary combinations and other related factors which constitutes one with the fortune to be a master in astrology, we need to understand what qualities should an astrologer possess.

  • Appropriate planetary combinations,
  • A strong and uncomplicated mind: The person should have a strong and uncomplicated mind which should be spiritually inclined too, to help him self to be objective in thinking while judging matters from a horoscope than subjective,
  • The person should have “Vaksidhi” (speaking ability),
  • Should have a good power of intuition,
  • The person should have developed a good analytical method of prediction.

Combinations for a good and sound knowledge in the field of astrology
To achieve knowledge in astrology or any related subject, one should have a natural inclination towards such subjects. A relation between the 1st and 8th houses or 10th and 8th houses indicates interest towards astrological related subjects. The lagna denotes the native himself while 10th denotes the profession or means of livelihood, success in life and honor from the society. The 8th house represents hidden energy, secrets, mysticism, astrology, occultism etc. The 8th house indicates initial path to spirituality too. The is a relation between 1st & 8th house as described below:

  1. Lagna lord posited in the 8th house,
  2. 8th lord posited in the 1st house,
  3. 1st and 8th lords in conjunction, or
  4. 1st and 8th lords in mutual aspect to each other.

Editor: Please look at this article – Rules of Combinations of planets, summarizing all the rules for required yogas.

Any of the above combinations indicates the person has an innate interest towards the mystic. Lagna being the representation of the native and 8th being the signification of all occult and mystic subjects (including astrology) a relation between them constitutes natural interest in astrological and related subjects. But that doesn’t mean that the person will have profession too in the same line.

Presence of any of the planetary situation in a horoscope indicates not only interest in astrological studies but the person having a profession in the related line. A relation between 1st, 8th & 10th house and its lords is the best situation in a horoscope for making an astrologer.

Apart from the relation between the 1st, 8th and 10th houses in a horoscope, there some signs and planets too play vital role in making an astrologer. In many astrologers’ horoscope it has been found that the lagna or 10th house is falls in any of these signs – Gemini, Scorpio, Aquarius or Pisces.

  • Gemini falls in the 3rd place in the natural horoscope indicates communications. Gemini is the most intellectual sign and people with Gemini strong and influential in their horoscope are basically found possessing good knowledge in many fields. They are good readers and judges and have the ability to investigate complex situations.
  • Scorpio is the 8th sign in natural zodiac those born with this sign rising are found to be good students of occult sciences. They can probe into difficult and complex subjects to smoke out their secrets and mark their mastery over it.
  • Aquarians are among the most fast, deep and sharp thinkers of the world. They are unassuming by nature and noted for their ability to be detached from this material world. Being the 11th sign in natural zodiac, they possess good intuition also.
  • Pisces being the 12th from the natural zodiac have a gift for their power of intuition, interest in religion, philosophy and related studies. They are most devoted to the field of their interest all which makes them the most eligible to become a celestial divinatory.

The karaka planet for astrology is Mercury who is karaka for “Budhi” or intelligence as well.  A powerful Mercury positioned in an angle, triangle, 2nd, 3rd or 11th house with residential strength and not afflicted is essential for making an astrologer. Mercury being conjoined or in aspect with Sun (but not combust and situated ahead of Sun), Jupiter or Saturn is supposed to give good results. Saturn’s influence over Mercury is deemed to be good as far as an astrologer’s horoscope is concerned. A combined influence of Saturn-Jupiter is supposed to be excellent. The influence of Saturn over Mercury will make the native patient and steady in achieving knowledge in any subject.

A yoga or aspect between Mercury and Jupiter is most desired situation in an astrologer’s horoscope since such situation will help the native to develop interest and achieve a good amount of knowledge in Vedic subjects.  Mercury shouldn’t be in dwirdasa (2-12) or shashtashtama (6-8) to Guru which cut downs the basic potential of the horoscope to become an astrologer even if there are other strong combinations. An influence over Mercury by the planets Mars, Ketu or Rahu are destructive for Vedic learning. Influence of Moon or Venus will make one more complex or materialistic by nature respectively.

The planet Guru also is vital in making an astrologer. Guru being the natural karaka for God’s grace, intuition, Vedic knowledge and wisdom his position in an astrologer’s horoscope is very important. Like Mercury, Guru also should be posited in houses like angles, trines, 2nd or 11th. He should have residential strength and influencing the houses Lagna, 2nd, 10th & 11th by the means of yoga, aspect or lordship. Guru being in yoga or mutual aspect with Moon, Mercury or Saturn in good houses is very desirable.

Combinations for a strong and uncomplicated mind
Moon and Ketu are also significant planets in an astrologer’s horoscope. Moon being the karaka for mind and the mental disposition of an astrologer is very important for doing objective analysis of charts; the Moon should be free from afflictions. Moon should be placed in the brighter half of the lunar month or should have residential strength and positioned in a good house. Moon shouldn’t be positioned in dwirdasha (2-12) or shatashtama (6-8) from the Sun since such a position will cause an imbalanced nature. Moon conjoined with or posited in Kendra from Guru forming Gajakesari yoga is the best situation for moon. A trine aspect from Guru also is fine. A good harmony between Guru and Moon will help the native to have good wisdom, vision and insight Veda shastras. A combined influence of Guru and Saturn over Moon is also deemed good, but influence of Saturn alone over Moon or by other planets than Guru is not good.

Ketu is moksha karaka and his positive approach in a horoscope will make one spiritually inclined. Ketu being posited in the houses 1, 3, 9, 11 and 12 is good, provided he is not conjoined or subject to aspect by any other planet except a trine aspect from Guru. Ketu being posited alone is always good since when he is under influence of a planet by the means of yoga or aspect changes his natural tendency. With the influence from Guru, Ketu will help a person to be detached from all illusions of this materialistic world.

Vaksidhi
Vaksidhi is an ability one gets by the grace of the lord. Speaking eloquently and with right words to express the mind is what Vaksidhi is all about. Vaksidhi Is judged from the 2nd house. The power of the 10th house also should be taken into account while judging the power of 2nd house. The lord of 2nd house posited there or in an angle or trine having residential strength is good for Vaksidhi. Mercury is the karaka planet for Vaksidhi. Jupiter influencing it is the best thing to happen. Moon, Budha or Sukra any of these planets posited alone in the 2nd house with the yoga or aspect of the lord of that rashi or Guru is good. The 2nd house should ideally fall in the signs of Sagittarius, Aries, Aquarius or Gemini. The yoga or aspect of 10th lord over 2nd house or the yoga or mutual aspect between 2nd & 10th lords also promotes vaksidhi. Ketu. Mars, Saturn or Rahu adversely affecting the 2nd or the 2nd lord is not desirable.

Intuition
In a horoscope 11th house is the house of intuition while planet Guru is the karaka for intuition and the planets Moon & Ketu are also is suppose to play a sub part. Moon, Mercury or Ketu posited in the 11th with aspect of Guru is the best position. Guru himself posited there also is fine.The 11th lord posited in the 11th or aspect the 11th are also activates one’s power of intuition. The 11th house falling in the signs of Scorpio, Aquarius or Pisces are the best situation.

A good analytical method of prediction developed by own
Now let us discuss the last quality an astrologer should be possessing, a good analytical method of predication developed by own. This is not warranted by any planetary combination instead it’s an ability achieved by one over the years of experience. An astrologer having a good basic knowledge in astrology and having the grace of intuition and vaksidhi starts his career in astrology and gain in experience over years. The more and more patience he shows in studying each chart instead of feeling himself to have mastered the subject and jumping into conclusions, the enthusiasm he keeps on to gather more and more knowledge in the field of astrology instead feeling saturated and accepting criticism on failure instead of making excuse for not wanting to admit own failure; all these attitudes will help one to establish a method of analyzing chart of his own.

I hope I have been clear and up to the point in all places in writing this article. Hope readers may find this article to be a use full one. I pray to the lord for all the students and budding professionals of astrology for their success. I invite comments from the readers in any form.

    Nice article. I have great interest in astrology. Unfortunately, any number of astros have not predicted things right or did not happen. All positive and good predictions but somehow have not materialized. I am now in the late sixties. Your combinations for astrologer matches in many respects with my horoscope. Know the basics, understand when you say things, etc. etc. but have not made attempts to learn and be a professional. Now tell me, is it possible to develop it now to be a professional or is it too late. DOB 1-2-1941, POB Kolkata, TOB 6.55 a.m. You can check my combination. Will appreciate your reply.

    Sir

    The comments or responses to any of the articles or notes never get any reply from you. Why…why please.There must be some reason..at least you can say that. It really does not make sense…I am disappointed. A great site but then what you use if you cannot elucidate or explain things further. I will be pleasantly shocked if you reply to this.

    Hello Mr. Ramakrishnan, I am extremely sorry for causing delay in replying. Been busy whole last week. I will reply to you in a couple of days time.

    Hello Mr. Ramakrishnan,

    I have gone through your horoscope and was trying to figure out the possibilities of you becoming a professional in astrology. Your horoscope is supportive for you to have a good mastery over the subject based on the following arguments. Your lagna is been occupied by the 8th lord Sun and from the moon the 8th lord Venus being posited in the 10th ( from the moon) while the moon lord Jupiter aspecting the 8th are the reason for your interest in the field of astrology.

    The karaka planet for astrology is Budha and him being posited in the second house in saturnine house having the aspect of mars and also being posited in the star of mars. Budha is subject to pap karthari yoga too. In navamsa budha is subject to the aspect of Saturn who is in turn aspected by mars. Neither in the rasi nor in the navamsa budha conjoined or receives the aspect of Jupiter. All this indicates the amount of struggle you have to go through in gaining knowledge in the field of astrology. The strong influence of mars over mercury cut downs your patience in having a steady growth in astrological learning. You might feel very enthusiastic in your astrological studies sometimes but lose your patience in the process all the now and then. The lagna lord Saturn debilitated in the 4th house (house of education) and aspecting the 10th also is also a reason for this slow advancement. From moon the lagna lord and 10th lord Jupiter posited in the 2nd and aspecting 10th where venus the 3rd ( lord of communications) and 8th (house of occult,astrology,etc,..) lord posited is good and warrants your possibility to become a professional in astrology. From lagna the 11th lord posited there itself and from moon the 11th lord in the 2nd with Jupiter and causing neecha bhanga are good for intuitional powers. The second from lagna is subject to pap karthari yoga and the 2nd lord weak are bad but still the 2nd from moon is occupied by Jupiter and the 2nd lord well placed in the 9th are good so you will have moderate “Vaksidhi”.

    Moreover, the present dasa is of Mars who is well posited in own sign being the 11th from lagna and the 9th from moon having posited in the star of mercury (the karaka for astrology) and causing a constellational parivarthana with mercury are positive sign for progress in the field of astrology right now. The dasa lord mars has formed some dhana yogas too which indicates good income for you in the present dasa. So I would like to conclude that you are having yoga to become a professional in astrology under present dasa though your advancement will be through many hurdles. I hope I have been clear in my explanation. Please feel free to write back about any point where you disagree.

    Regards,

    Dear Mr. Bijesh

    How do I thank you? Indeed, thanks a lot. It is extremely nice of you to have spent your valuable time on my chart to give me such a detailed answer. So far I am an avid follower of astrology and understand all that you have written. I once made an effort to study astro but gave it up for a variety of reasons. Know some basics, not thorough though. To some extent I lack confidence I think, though on every job have I undertaken, have done very well and everyone thinks of my capability well, except myself. Part of horoscope itself, I suppose.

    But it makes me happy to know I can do well if I undertake learning astrology. You are right my span of concentration remained a problem and my focus not sharp enough. I would like to speak or mail you much more in detail on other aspects/areas, provided you are good enough to give me your personal email id; also your contact nos. and where you are located. If it is in Chennai, where I am, I should be doubly happy to meet you. Awaiting your response, and

    Thanking you once again profusely,

    With warm regards

    Sir,

    I read your article and found it very helpful. I have an interest towards the vedic sciences and do know some things in astrology. I have an inclination to know more including vastu. I would be grateful if you could let me know whether I can achieve indepth knowledge in this field astrologically.

    My Birth details are as follows :
    Date of Birth : 13-12-1969
    Time of Birth : 10:20 pm
    Place of Birth : Mala, Chalakudi, Trichur, Kerala

    Anticipating your detailed reply.
    Thanks

    Sir,

    I realized my mistake about my planets being in 2-12. I would like to have your opinion anyway.

    Thanks

  • Comment by S. ANAND on October 11, 2009 at 5:49 am

    Birth times of individuals born in India during WW II is always questionable, as war time correction was in vogue then. In the case of Mr. Ramakrishnan, Capricorn 29 deg rises, and the lagna changes after 3 minutes. He says many predictions have not materialized; maybe the birth time itself is in error?

    If the chart is recast for 5.55 AM or 7.55 AM, how does either lagna give better readings about the life of the native? Without verifying the accuracy of the chart, any prediction about any aspect of life is on shaky grounds.

    Just my 2 paise.

    Without rectification.

    sir i m having dhanu lagan & guru & moon(8th lord) in 5th house,and venus in 6th in tarus,sun mars and mercury in 7th house.and shani in 12 and rahu in 4 th house and ketu in 10th house.is it perfect matching for an astrologer?

  • Comment by Bijesh Menon on October 12, 2009 at 9:06 pm

    Hi Anand,

    I have been going through your comment about my analysis of Mr.Ramakrishnan’s horoscope. Thanks for your criticism and I would like to clear a point or two based on which you have raised questions about the validity of my analysis.

    You have stated that “ Birth times of individuals born in India during WW II is always questionable, as war time correction was in vogue then. In the case of Mr. Ramakrishnan, Capricorn 29 deg rises, and the lagna changes after 3 minutes. He says many predictions have not materialized; maybe the birth time itself is in error?”

    Further you have stated that “ Without verifying the accuracy of the chart, any prediction about any aspect of life is on shaky grounds.”

    Anand, even I did notice that the person’s lagna falls in the 29 degree of Capricorn. Why to talk about the WW two period, even birth time given for the people born 2, 3 decades ago are not reliable most of the time. In such cases when the time of birth given is unreliable or ascendant falls in cusp of signs, all the learned astrologers take the help of different methods mentioned by our great the sages to reach a conclusion. It varies from Mandi test, Kunda kriya, Pranapada method to horary, any of which may come in handy to deal with such cases. I don’t think that any learned astrologer will jump into conclusion without rectifying such situation. So I don’t know how you did conclude that I have taken Mr.Ramakrishnan’s lagna as Capricorn without rectifying it with the help of any of the above mentioned methods? Or is it your illiteracy about such methods made you state so?

    One more thing, Anand, the great astrologers including Sir BV Raman have always said that astrology is purely a science, but making a prediction is an art and for making predictions based on the planetary combinations of a chart is a lot more based on the intuition, experience and god’s grace of an astrologer. They have also said that relying too much upon mathematical part of astrology will just cut downs one’s predictive ability. I don’t know whether there is anything for you to pick up from these lines……

    At last about your “Just my 2 paise” comment. I am sorry, I will never want to comment on that.
    Regards

  • Comment by Arch on October 14, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    Respected Guruji, I have following combination of planets in my chart . Guru in 2nd, Ketu in 1st with Shukra, Shani in 4th, rahu in 7th. Merc with Sun in 12th and Moon in 10th. I have a strong intution about the future things and also spiritually inclined and interested in astrology too but at the same time seek the happy family life too even though ketu is with Shukra. So in this case is the ketu malefic for me since it is with shukra?

    Hi to all,

    I request all of you to specify your birth details (Date of birth, time and place) when you ask for replies. And also I kindly request to those people, to forgive me who’s queries are not replied. The time constrain causes much difficulty in replying all the queries, so I may be fuzzy in replying. Anyway thanks to all for your responses.

    Hi Bijesh,

    I was not trying to criticize your analysis. The native says “.. unfortunately, any number of astros have not predicted things right or did not happen. All positive and good predictions but somehow have not materialized .. “, the first thing that came to my mind is if the chart is correct. When I see the year of birth, I know that since time correction was in vogue, if the reported birth time is valid/correct. Thus, I have stated that birth time could be 5.55, 6.55, 7.55 AM, which puts the rising degree at Capricorn 11*48′ or Capricorn 29*04 or Aquarius 17*53.

    In your analysis, you have not stated that you have rectified the time. From your write up, it appears you have gone by the time provided. Unless you have had offline contact (which is not likely since the native asks for your email address in a subsequent post), I will assume that the navamsa lagna has not been rectified, and you are not considering birth after 7.00 AM. I don’t even know if the time given is LMT ! So, please share with us, if you don’t mind, the rectification methods you have applied. There are many methods, may be you can use two non-mathematical methods (lest it affect your prediction). You may use Parasari or Jaimini methods — whatever floats your boat.

    As far as this quote goes — They have also said that relying too much upon mathematical part of astrology will just cut downs one’s predictive ability. — it is from Dr. Raman’s Autobiography. Prof. B Suryanarain Row counsels him that beyond a point mathematics will atrophy prediction. But it is in the context of an over-reliance on shadbalas and other mathematical methods of establishing planetary strengths. It doesn’t apply here. Moreover, addressing planetary longtidues, orbs of influence/aspects are well-considered by Dr. BV Raman in his works. Maybe you could check up his analysis of charts in “Notable Horoscopes”. As far as your comment “I don’t know whether there is anything for you to pick up from these lines ..” — I’ll just ignore it. BTW, my 2 paise is a variation of “my two cents”, which is merely a colloquial way of saying “it is just my opinion”.

    Coming to your analysis. Especially the view that the person will be a professional astrologer with “moderate vaksiddhi” (it is an oxymoron IMO. Siddhi implies attainment or perfection). Mercury is in the first bhava, he is barely 3 degrees off the ascending longtitude. Saturn, lord of 2nd house of speech is debilitated in the 4th. There is no aspect of Jupiter, who is the karaka for ‘vak’ (not Budha). Jupiter is also the karaka of the 2nd house. Venus, lord of 5th, also known as “mantra pada” and “purva punya”, is a house that shows interest coming from past lives. Here, the 5th lord is in the 12th in an enemy sign. Do you think the knowledge will stick?? Venus is a jala tattva planet in a fire sign, getting repeated extinguished. Study of astrology, and thus interest, will therefore be in fits and starts. 9th house (5th from 5th) is occupied by Rahu, but no aspect of Jupiter; Moon is maraka as he is 7th lord. Moon’s association with Ketu, who co-lords Scorpio, in Pisces (Jupiter) is indicative of interest in the occult. Jupiter, the karaka for astrology (Jupiter is the teacher, Mercury is the student, so you can decide who should be the prime karaka) is a neutral for the chart. His placement in the 4th (house of formal education) with Saturn may make native study astrology in a formal way, but with difficulty in fully digesting the concepts. Sun’s placement in the lagna is not suitable for astrological study, as it impairs “dhi” shakti which is signified by the lagna.

    For the given chart, the native can have only ordinary knowledge of astrology.

    I noticed one thing in your write-up regarding combinations for astrologers: A powerful Mercury positioned in an angle, triangle, 2nd, 3rd or 11th house with residential strength and not afflicted is essential for making an astrologer — this makes up 9 houses out of 12 !

    Bijesh,
    When everyone is saying “Nice Article”, that means it has to be.Your inner side nicely reflected through the article.
    I will not take much of your time, to read my comment. But it would be a gain for me if you write an Article about the word “Moksha”( Actually you used this word in this astrological notes).
    I also dont know you are gonna write or not but again a request that, if you write then “Please Dont write immidiately”. Atleast take couple of week to think. I want it again from your inner side 🙂

  • Comment by Bijesh Menon on December 22, 2009 at 7:30 pm

    Hello Shreya,

    I have been going through your horoscope to find out the reasons why you are having those terrific tendencies recently. Your horoscope looked like a quite a strong one at the first look and I was bit confused about the reasons why you are under the present situation? Though there are some combinations in your horoscope which indicate that you are bound to face some stiff situations in life but the tendency to put one’s own life to an end is very strange and rather very dangerous. The lagna is Sagittarius and the lord Jupiter posited there itself powerfully. The karaka for mind Moon is under aspect by Jupiter and rather saved. The lord of the Moon sign Mercury though in debilitation is in a Kendra from both lagna and moon and attaining “Neecha-Bhanga” has gained considerable strength. The present dasa is of Saturn who is the 2nd & 3rd lord in the 6th with 6th lord and 12th lord is not good but he is the 8th lord from Moon and posited in the 12th with the 12th lord and 6th lords is forming a great “vipareeth raja yoga”. These factors are not enough to put you into so much of trouble. What I found as the real reason behind all your struggle are as follows.

    The present dasa lord Shani is in debilitation in navamsa. He is a maraka lord (2nd and 3rd) from Lagna and posited in the 12th with the 6th lord Mars who is a bitter enemy to Saturn. Moreover the star in which Saturn is posited is of Moon who is the 8th lord is in the 7th a maraka sthana. Based on these situations and relations of Saturn in your horoscope he is bound to give you trouble and more over the sub period of Mars is started in October 2009 which will continue till 2010 November is extremely bad. On top of these things the transit Ketu afflicting your natal moon while transit Jupiter in the 8th from natal moon were added trouble which gave you the negative feelings and happenings in all sectors of your life. Luckily Jupiter have just moved into Aquarius and aspects the natal Moon will be great advantage for you as Jupiter will help your mind to calm down well and will take care of the damages which Ketu is about to make. So I would like to conclude that your entire negative mental attitude will fade away slowly now onwards though an ultimate relief will be achieved after Mars sub period comes to an end.

    About the professional front: The transit Jupiter comes to Pisces by May 2010 and by then the first half of Mars sub period will also be over. That’s the time that is the 2nd half of 2010 will bring in much wanted change in your career positively. You will get settled with a good job in latter half of 2010. Though the first half will see you getting into a job, you won’t feel comfortable there and after May only the real change will come.

    About your married life, it’s true that there is some disturbing factor in your horoscope related to your married life but as far as I am concerned those are not enough to do a big damage. I think your husband’s horoscope is having some disturbing factors related to married life. I could only tell something about your married life after looking into your husband’s horoscope too.

    Please feel free to write back if you have anything to be clarified further.
    Regards,

    Bijesh

    Namaskar Bijesh Ji,

    It is great joy to see that you have responded to my query and that too with such inpedpth analysis. It has indeed helped me get to grips with my present situation. I am short of words to express my humble gratitude. I really admire the selfless effort that you have put in to guide me in my present situation. I do not really understand the impact of neech bhang and vipreet raj yog in astrology? Also how damaging they can be? It looks like the planet Saturn in my horoscope is bound to give me troubles. I would like to visit you with my husband and personally thank you for all your kindness. I live in UK and wonder when will it be possible.

    All my best wishes,
    regards,

    Shreya

    Hi Shreya,

    There are 3 kinds of “Raja yoga” which are Maha Raja yogas, Necha bhanga Raja yogas & Vipareeth Raja yogas. Basically all the Raja yogas coming under any of the above category provide the same kind of results. Mainly good amount of fame and wealth are the results. The difference occurs only in the time and way the results are felt to the native.

    The Maha Raja yogas starts giving good fame and wealth to the native since a young age itself till the end and the yoga results will be felt on at the peak at the concerned planet/planets dasa.

    While in Neecha bhanga Raja yoga the results will be felt in the second half of life that is mainly after the age of 32. The persons who have this yoga normally faces many a hurdles in their first half of life but in the second half they gradually grows to the peak. The dasa or sub period of planet causing Neecha bhang Raja yoga happening after 30-32 years will start elevating the person to the much aspired levels.

    In case of Vipareeth Raja yoga the results will be felt only on the dasa of the planet/planets causing the yoga. In case of Vipareeth Raja yoga, the dasa of the planet which causing the yoga elevates the person to the peaks of his/her life, but before and after to the said dasa the person will not have even the glimpses of the yoga.

    But each horoscope is different and the level of effects and time when the yoga will operate are to be concluded only after studying the chart thoroughly, because as I said earlier each horoscope is different.
    Regards,

    Bijes Menon

    Namaskar Bijesh ji,

    Glad to see your reply and further clarification to my query on impact of various yoga’s in horoscope and their impacts. I guess most of one’s life is predestined and of course one would not deny that one undergoes good/bad situations in life based on the positions of planets. But is there a scope when one can transcend destiny? I mean achieve something in life that can give everlasting security? Also is there anything that is permanent that one can hold on to may be materially, physically or emotionally? And if there is no such thing as everlasting security then what is future of mankind and the hope that mankind would expect from astrology?

    With all my best wishes to you for the new year when it comes.

    Thanks and regards,
    Shreya

  • Comment by shanti on January 24, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    Dear Mr.Bijesh,

    First of all,let me thank you for the wonderful article on combination for astrologers.I have been drawn to astrology but had never thought I had the right combinations for a serious study of astrology as I’m a perfect example of a Gemini Lagna and do have a problem of concentrating for a long stretch of time but I keep reading and acquiring knowledge from various websites, on and off.Also I would like to add that I joined a nationalised bank as an officer at 22yrs and took VRS in 2007 at the beginning of my Mars dasa as I got bored with my job.But while I was with the bank,I did earn a good reputation but was never motivated to take up further promotions which I attribute to Jup,lord of 10th being retrograde and debilitated in my 8th house.I have read that jupiter in 8th gives interest in occult,astrology and metaphysics but does its debilitated state and retro position at the same time affect my interest in astrology adversely? Or is it because its conjunct with Saturn which is also retrograde in 8th house in capricorn ? I have not yet taken up any job at present because I dont want to get into another bank job. I would be happy if you could look into my chart and suggest what else could be suitable.I would love to work for an NGO or some charitable organisations,if they could employ me.I’m also interested in Art as in sketching and painting as my career.Is there a 5th house/lord connection with my 10th house or will it just be my hobby? I have never been interested in making money but I want to do something that gives me satisfaction.Does having Pisces as 10th house give this quality? In the last 2 yrs I have been reading lot about spirituality and I feel I have yet to find my true purpose in life.
    Another interesting thing I would like to share is that my interest in astrology started in Moon dasa when I was going through lot of marital problems and I turned to astrology to seek answers.Again jupiter being my 7th lord in 8th house was the connection.I would like to know if I have any neecha bhanga raja yogas in my chart.Both moon and jupiter are debilitated but also get cancelled,in my humble opinion.Please throw some light on that and also would like your opinion on my chart regarding my profession, whenever you find some time to study it.

    Regards,
    Shanti

  • Comment by Bijesh Menon on January 25, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    Dear Shanti,

    Please confirm the below mentioned things for the purpose of rectification of your horoscope.

    1] Did you have break in education? If so was that in year 77-78?

    2] Which year did you get married? [I hope it must be in 1983]

    Need these details to cross check the findings.
    Regards,

    Bijesh

  • Comment by shanti on January 27, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Dear Mr.Bijesh,

    Thanks for your prompt reply.Well,I did not have any break in my entire education till my degree which I completed in 1982.In fact studies were smooth sailing for me,always stood among the first three ranks.My father got transferred in 1981 but I stayed back in a hostel to complete my college.Joined the bank in 1984 About my marriage,it was a love marriage and took place in 1986.Anything else you require,please ask me.I can’t think of anything else that could help in birth time rectification.About my health,it has been good so far,touch wood ! except that I was seriously ill with pnuemonia when I was 5 yrs old.I was told that I almost died because of it.
    I have a daughter who was born in 1989.My bank job,my marriage and the birth of my daughter, all took place during my sade sati period.
    Thanks for showing interest in my letter.Looking forward to your reply.

    Shanti

    Dear Bijesh,

    My Birth details are:
    July 27, 1973, 03:10 AM IST, Madurai, TamilNadu,India.

    Both Lagna and Moon are in a cusp between Rishaba and Mithuna. If birth time is 3:07 AM, then it become Rishaba lagna and Rishaba rasi. If birth time is 3:15, then Mithuna Lagna and Mithuna Rasi. The source of my birth time is my grandmother and the hospital nurse. So i am not sure how correct it is and would appreciate your feedback on rectifying/fixing the planetary position.

    Thanks

    Namaskar Bijesh ji,

    It has been a very interesting thread. You have indeed clarified a lot of points to be an astrologer and also taken the time and patience to answer specific queries regarding the same.
    My personal interest in astrology began about 8 years back. However it soon hit a ceiling and I began having doubts about my abilities especially when people are inclined to believe you 100%. So now it is reduced to more of a hobby where I follow it up with some reading.
    But still I have this question whether I have the ability to read a chart properly, however little that I may do of it. And should I be doing it at all. Please help me in finding the answers.

    My details are:

    Respected Brijeshji,
    I could not help myself in leaving a comment. It was pleasure to read your article and comments section. I am no one to comment on any thing which you stated in article and in your replies as you are on a very high platform and I am nothing.

    I am studying astrology in Bhartiya Vidya Bhawan, Delhi and was dishearten (not exactly) when one of the teacher explained the combination for becoming an astrologer as none of parameters fit to my horoscope, whereas others in class were happy to find these in their horoscopes. And today after reading your article, it has been confirmed. But don’t know why I am continuing this study, I have doubts that I may not be able to study at higher levels. I joined the class in July 2009 and will be appearing for final exam in June 2010.Internally I have great interest in Astrology and would do my best to continue the studies.
    Regards
    Alok

    Dear Mohnish,

    These words of yours “However it soon hit a ceiling and I began having doubts about my abilities especially when people are inclined to believe you 100%. So now it is reduced to more of a hobby where I follow it up with some reading” have motivated me to reply to your post.

    I have noticed that many of whom who have taken interest in astrology used to go through similar feelings in their initial stage. In the beginning his attempts to make predictions normally meets with success by the grace of the God. It is on the later stage when he gathers more knowledge and experience he tends to make wrong predictions. The reasons may be saturated feeling about one’s own knowledge, forgetting the basics while indulging in experiments or becoming over cautious.

    From your words it’s not clear whether you had any experience in the past where your prediction went wrong but there is a visible extra amount of caution. I would like to suggest you that you should never turn back or try to reduce your focus in astrology and helping people. You may experience failures in your predictions when your bad time is on but never overlook on those experiences rather always try to be truthful to yourself and towards astrology all the time.

    About your horoscope, I have found everything positive for you to become an astrologer except the position of Moon-Mercury combination in the 8th from Jupiter. Pray to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Saraswathi Devi to overcome the adverse effects created by position of planets stated above.

    Once again I convey you my wishes of you taking up astrology in a more serious way and helping the mankind as much as possible.
    Reagards,

    Bijesh Menon

I’m interested in pursuing art,also.Will these just be hobbies or can I take it up as a profession.Please reply.

    Shanti

  • Comment by Bijesh Menon on April 14, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    Dear Shanti,

    Before I start with I would like to apologize to you for the long delay occurred in replying. When you wrote to me for the first time and mentioned about your doubt over the Lagna since it’s falling in the cusp of Taurus, Gemini signs I went through your horoscope casually and felt like you might have born under Taurus Lagna. Based on those observations I put some questions to you in the immediate reply. But when I went through the actual experiences in your life which were elaborated in the second reply from you, I understood that I had a wrong grasp of your horoscope. Your life experiences were absolutely matching with the Gemini Lagna. I would attribute the credit for this mistake to my own lacking in having a thorough study of your horoscope before I came forward for a discussion with you.

    I felt guilty on my part about the situation and decided to have a thorough study of your horoscope before I reply to you again. The time constrain caused by the busy schedule of mine took me long before I sat down on a fine morning to have further analysis of your horoscope. By the day I studied your horoscope and came to conclusions it was almost more than a month since your second reply. Then I thought that you will not be expecting a reply from me any longer. But after seeing your latest post once again I feel guilty on my part for not to have wrote to you till date. Anyway it will be misappropriate on my side if I don’t make apologize to you for all the above things. So I kindly request you to accept my heartfelt apologizes.

    Let me start answering your concerns one by one. I am trying to be precise since in a response like this, there are limitations to take this to the level of a discussion.

    Your interest in astrology is basically because of 3 combinations in the horoscope. First factor is the yoga Between Saturn (8th Lord) and Jupiter (10th Lord). The second factor is the karaka for astrology that is Mercury is being well posited in the Lagna in his own sign. The third factor is Moon’s position in the sign Scorpio and that too in the star of Mercury. The weak position of Moon and Jupiter while both of them are in 6, 8 positions to Mercury are indicative of the struggle you may have to bring in for acquiring deeper knowledge of astrology.

    “but was never motivated to take up further promotions which I attribute to Jup, lord of 10th being retrograde and debilitated in my 8th house “, No, the real credit should go to Venus who is in the 12th house. The aspect of Jupiter over there is boosting the effects.

    Mars the present dasha Lord being posited in the 10th from Moon which is Leo and whose Lord Sun is in Cancer. Sun receives the aspect of Jupiter and Satrurn. From Lagna the 10th Lord Jupiter has the aspect of Sun and also is in the constellation of Sun. The strong influence of Sun and Jupiter along with Saturn in connection to the 10th house indicates that you may proceed your career which is related to the masses and social organisations connected to the Govt. Rest of all may stay as hobbies.

    These are my humble opinions with respect to your questions for which you were seeking answers.
    Regards,

    Bijesh Menon

  • Comment by Shanti on April 18, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Dear Bijesh ji,

    Oh,thanks a lot for your analysis of my chart.please don’t apologise for the delay.I do understand that you must be having a day job and must be busy with many other things.I have been checking this site for your reply but noticed you were not replying to posts from others also.I decided to ask you again when I saw that were back here replying to someone’s query.Hope you don’t mind if I discuss my chart based on what you have said.
    I have always felt that my lagna was Gemini even though my father(he too is interested in astrology) would insist that I had more of Taurean characteristics
    I’m glad that you have confirmed that for me!
    You said my lack of motivation in my bank job was more due aspect of jupiter on venus in 12th.Is it because they are mutual enemies or because its in 12th-house of loss? I’m not clear about that point.I always thought jup’s aspect on my 12th venus was beneficial.
    Also,I would like to know if there’s neechabanga for both moon and jupiter?
    Recently I have started studying my divisional chart also,esp dasamsa.I was surprised to see that my 10th lord Jupiter of my Rasi chart placed in 6th house(sag)with mercury.I think that really explains my banking career for 23 yrs.It was amazing that it fitted my job description so perfectly.Here are the details of Dasamsa chart: Lagna-cancer
    4th house libra-venus saturn and rahu
    6th house sagg-Jup,mercury
    9th pisces-Mars
    10th aries-moon and ketu
    12th gemini-sun

    Could you please tell me if this chart should also be studied in addition to rasi chart for career or should I ignore this and just go with main chart? If my earlier job could be explained by placement of jup,Me in 6th,then could it throw light on my next one? In this chart I see lot of planets aspecting the 10th house and the 10th lord Mars(current dasa)in 9th.I’m worried about the presence of nodes.But hoping they could help me in export related business (Ketu in 10th supposed to help foreign trade)Now I’m talking like true gemini!Yeah,exports and stock market also interest me.I have handled exports while working in the bank and would like to work or start something in export business if I get the opportunity.
    Please study my div chart and let me know what it says.

    Hello dear all,

    There is no astrologer “worth his salt” on the net I know who can find out or rectify the “Time of Birth”: they ask for scores of details?

    Am a Master Mariner and have been doing Astrology from childhood. Rectification is the simplest thing on earth. Use the D.R. (dead reckoning) method that Navigators use to find the Noon position.

  • Comment by Bijesh Menon on May 7, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Dear Mukul,

    The conjunction of Lagna lord Venus with the 8th lord Jupiter and the 10th lord Saturn posited in the Lagna in mutual aspect to Venus and Jupiter are indications of high inclination towards the subject. Jupiter conjoined with Mercury in the sign Scorpio and having aspect over Lagna indicates your ability to have deep understanding of the subject.

    The 2nd lord Mercury conjoined with Lagna lord Venus and Jupiter while the 2nd house free from afflictions is indicating that you will have good Vaksiddhi.

    The 11th lord Jupiter conjoined with Venus the Lagna lord in a Kendra and Jupiter having aspect over both Lagna and 11th house are showing good power of intuition. The aspect of Moon over the 11th house who is afflicted due to the aspect of Mars will cause issue to your intuition unless you overcome it by the means of meditation and Sadhana.

    Considering the above planetary influences I feel you are having good prosperity to pursue astrology as profession. The current Dasha of Jupiter will be the right time to start pursuing astrology as profession. Once Jupiter starts transit over Taurus and Saturn leaves Virgo (after his retro in Aug 2012) then towards the last quarter of 2012 you can enter in to Astrology.
    Regards,

    Very Nice article. I have great interest in astrology. But my mother’s dream was i should b engineer n now i m and working in IT company but not feeling satisfied anyway instead every day i feel frustrated. Your combinations for astrologer matches in many respects with my horoscope. Know the basics, understand when you say things, etc. etc. but due to financial situation have not made attempts to learn and be a professional. Even my free time i used to learn n read planetary position of my birthchart n try to learn. Plz advice me should i develop professional skill in Astrology. DOB 31-08-1989, POB Lalpur(Dist- Jamnagar, State-Gujarat),, TOB 7.45 a.m. You can check my combination. Will appreciate your reply.

  • Comment by C.G.Ramamurthi on October 19, 2015 at 2:13 pm

    I qualified as Chartered Accountant and Company Secretary in 1985. I am currently working at MNC which was set up in 1996. I was Head of Finance and Company Secretary from the very beginning i.e. for 19 years. I set-up and nurtured the department apart from being a senior member of the management since inception. I had some health issues from time to time and underwent a by-pass surgery in 2011.
    The MNC ownership changed several hands from German, to American and finally to Chinese in 2013.
    Thereafter I continued to be active in the Company. All of a sudden in the first week of February 2015, I was suddenly stripped off my department and made in charge of a non-existing legal department. However, the remuneration, a reasonable amount, considering the industry is kept unchanged for the time being.
    Obviously, unhappy with these developments, I am continuing in my position as I have both own family and extended family commitments.
    My questions:
    1. Whether I will be continue in the current employment?
    2. Whether any betterment is seen in near future at my current employment?
    3. Shall I look for a fresh job, given that my age is 57 years.
    4. Shall I set up own practice or consultancy.
    5. Is there any other option.

    Sunanda Ramamurthi
    Date of Birth 18th August 1992, Time of Birth: 07:10 A.M., Place of Birth: Mumbai
    Before completing my graduation, I completed in first attempt the Intermediate Course of Chartered Accountancy course in November 2011 result in January 2012. I started my training immediately thereafter, hence could not focus on my graduation. However, I completed by graduation in Commerce in 2012 though the marks were below expectations. I competed my M.Com Part I exam in the meantime. I appeared for the first time for CA final in November 2014. Though I studied well and wrote the exam well, I could not get through any of the papers. I tried again in May 2015 and again could not get through any of my papers. Now I am preparing to appear again in November 2015.

    1. When a favourable time would come for completing my CA final examinations.
    2. Whether I can pursue any other management course or take up a job.
    3. I would also like to migrate to US either for study or for job prospects.. Whether and when this is possible
    4. What subject should I specialize in for e.g.. accountancy or finance or business administration in a business organization or taxation or specialized services like mergers/amalgamations in a consultancy firm.
    5. Any other suggested field of education which will help me in my career.

    B.Tech In Electrical Engineering in 2014. I am still jobless.
    But one thing which I would like to inform you that since 2006 I have been going
    through astrology. I have studied Palm reading, Traditional astrology, Numerology
    on my own. I know I still need to learn plenty of astrology.
    My parents want me to get a job but now a days I find no interests in it.
    I am afraid of making attempt towards astrology because I do not know whether I would be
    successful in astrology or not.
    I am in great mental trauma.
    My D.O.B. – 07/09/1991
    Birth Time – 00 : 04 A.M ( 6th september becomes 7th as it is after 12, Lagna – Geminie,
    Rashi – Cancer )
    Birth Place – Kolkata
    So, I am praying to your kind heart to be kind enough to go through by horoscope and
    let me know is there any opportunity for me in this field of astrology and thus oblige me.
