Jupiter, is He a Saviour always?

Profession and Downfalls Part IV

Author – Bijesh Menon

Final part of a 4 part article. Part I is published here – Profession and Downfalls – Part I (Rahu-Ketu Axis) and Part II is published here – Profession and Downfalls Part II – Sun’s effect in the horoscope. Part III is published here – Saturn affecting Profession in Vedic Astrology.

Jupiter, the planet of wisdom has beengiven the status of a guru in Vedic astrology. Jupiter gives one foresight, insight and wisdom. Jupiter makes one free and independent. Powerful Jupiter makes one very liberal and always there extending help and shelter for the needy ones. But is Jupiter a saviour always? The real life experiences show that it is not always true. Let us check.

I don’t think that a discussion about Jupiter’s natal position in a horoscope is required here. By nature, Jupiter is a benefic and will never cause adversity in one’s career. Only when he happens to be the lord of bad houses in an astrology chart or situated badly in a horoscope, Jupiter may cause a reversal of fortune of sorts in the profession. The interesting facts are lying in the transit.

When Jupiter is transiting through the houses 6, 8, 10 and the ascendant, one is generally prone to face difficulties in profession. The 10th house transit always brings about a change. Most people will have a transfer (change of place) at this transit. The change may come in different levels based on the dasha running in one’s horoscope. At the least, one could expect a change within the firm or branch from one department to another or changes of responsibility. The atmosphere in the work place may go sour and the relation with colleagues may become strained. One will have no control over the developments in his/her work environment.  Many people tend to leave the job at this transit because of the sudden rise of the unpleasant situation at work place.

Under 6th house transit of Jupiter some people will have a sudden tendency to go for business and say good bye to service. Many will land up in trouble by taking up such a decision. Those who are in service will face competition among colleagues for elevations and recognition and may land up on the loser’s shore. Business people will face tough competition and enmity in the business circle. Those who are into partnership ventures may face a split. Only those who are into gambling and speculation will get benefitted by the transit of Jupiter through 6th house, if Jupiter influences the natal position of the 11th lord in their horoscope.

The 8th house transit of Jupiter always causes struggles and obstacles in one’s career. At this transit Jupiter imposes legal problems to many. Allegations and ill repute will lead to bad situations. Unexpected crisis in profession and financial front are to be expected. One may face problems in all kinds of relations. Project or plans will face severe obstacles and may have to be postponed till the end of the transit. People at this transit will feel like a standstill situation.

The first house transit of Jupiter is less harmful. Such natives may face uneasiness all around and that may affect their professional life. At this transit people may wander around and bring forth a lot of hard work just to see all those go in vain. Many will face the lack of confidence especially in the matters related to profession around this time.

General Factors

Apart from the above referred special combinations there are some general factors also which are noteworthy. Whenever transit Saturn, Rahu or Ketu influences the natal position of sub dasha lord, it creates tensions in all sectors of life. Transit Jupiter at such disposition will control the adverse results rather increase the positive effects. All the above said adverse transit of planets will have less impact if they are transiting through Kshema or adimithra star from the birth star.


Let me end this article with few observations. I have produced no example horoscopes here for justifying any of the above principles because to justify a past event from a horoscope is an easy task for any learned person in astrology. I am not at all interested in any of the reader accepting the principles said above without getting convinced by themselves after experimenting it. Also as I have stated in the beginning of this article, profession is a vast subject and covering all aspects of any part of this subject will be incomplete always. Esteemed readers may find many such situations in the above article and I always welcome all those feedbacks from you with a full heart.

    yes very true:the worst transit is 8th house and second worse is 6th house and third worse is 4th house. considering 8th house transit yes i am very sure and it proven to be worse each time: may 2000 to may 2001 and then may 2012 to may 2013: 8th house transit for tula rashi. next time will be very careful regarding this transit. these were the worst peroid of life in 42 years.
