Drishti on/by Jupiter

Transit Effect on Various Rashis

Guru gives auspicious results transiting through these houses from Ascendant or Moon – 2nd House, 5th House, 7th House, 9th House and 11th House. For the rest of the houses, the overall effect is adverse, i.e. adverse effect will be felt if Jupiter is transiting through the janma rashi, 3rd House, 4th House, 6th House, 8th House, 10th House and 12th House. Out of these, 11th House transit of Jupiter is highly auspicious transit. At the same time, 3rd House transit of Jupiter as counted from rashi or lagna is highly inauspicious and is the worst transit of Jupiter. Based on these principles, we can summarize the results for various rashis as follows:

1. Aries

For Aries, Jupiter will go through the 9th House transit, which is an auspicious transit. At the same time, interaction with other planets will cause the auspicious nature of the transit to be lowered.

Jupiter is the natural significator of the 9th house. Hence, logically, 9th house transit is a very auspicious transit for Jupiter. Overall, this transit indicates travel to foreign locations, wealth accumulation and respect from others. Children will do well (5th house dasha) and the desire to have kids is triggered during the year. Trine transit is also good for getting married. This is a good period for students as scholarship is indicated. Long-distance and long-term travel will be rewarding during the year.

Saturn’s transit in Capricorn will create a long term vedha on Jupiter’s transit, which will happen by the end of January 2020. At the same time, Ketu is also in the 9th house transit. Close interactions between Jupiter and Ketu will bring down the positive effects of Jupiter.

The retrogression and the brief Capricorn transit will be negative for the career. Be careful during this time.

2. Taurus

For Taurus, Jupiter is going through 8th house transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Jupiter is not a friend of rashi lord and 8th house is not a good transit as it indicates hidden obstacles from all areas. Difficulty to the spouse is indicated, especially when it comes to women. It also indicates health problems during the period of retrogression when Jupiter will be back in Sagittarius. Foreign travel is indicated during the period of transit, but it is usually accompanied by fatigue. Change of place is indicated but it will not bring happiness. During the period of retrogression of Jupiter, loss of wealth and fear of litigation is indicated. Joint property purchases with the spouse will yield money. Therefore, keep your spouse in the loop for any large financial transactions. Jupiter’s own house transit through 8th house indicates gains through inheritance.

Ketu’s presence along with Jupiter in the 8th house will modify the results of the transit till the time Ketu moves out. The above indications will be there, but Ketu will ensure disinterest and lowering of optimism in execution.

3. Gemini

For Gemini, Jupiter is going through the 7th house transit, which is an auspicious transit.

This is a good transit that indicates affects the house of spouse, social network and labha and the house of valour, bravery and siblings. Happiness with the spouse is indicated for both sexes and more so for women for whom the planet is natural karaka for the husband. It also indicates favours from those around you due to drishti on the 11th house denoted by Aries in your case. Short distance travel will be auspicious. Financial gains, prosperity, especially in new enterprises is indicated. You will be able to create new “partners” in success and grow your support circle. Lawyers will be helpful and civil court cases that you may be grappling with can be solved in your favour. Help from other government machinery is also indicated. At the same time, you can be overoptimistic and may not see the negative side of things.

This is a good time for students as they will be able to learn new subjects.

Health problems can occur due to overindulgence. Food intake should be controlled.

4. Cancer

For Cancer, Jupiter is going through the 6th house transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Jupiter is going through its own house transit. Opposition is indicated by wise persons, which means you will have to deal with people with brains. At the same time, you can be a little lethargic in dealing with them. If you can take this opposition in stride, it can be a period of personal growth and responsibility.

A difference of opinion with spouse and family is indicated. For those who are not yet married, prospects of marriage will be delayed or there will be obstacles.

Health will suffer if you do not control eating, especially kapha foods – oily food, milk products should be consumed with caution. Retrograde Jupiter will cause emotional problems and diseases of the abdomen area.

Prospects in business and job will be average while you should watch how you align with your superiors and how you maintain your reputation. This is a good period for saving money and improving on your fixed deposits. Be frugal in expenditure and do not jump into litigation without doing your homework. Unsocial attitude can lead to a bad temper with others.

5. Leo

For Leo, Jupiter is going through the 5th House transit, which is an auspicious transit.

The 5th house transit is a good period for an overall increase in knowledge. This is a good period for students. Money through speculation, the stock market will also help by providing a stable judgement in dealing with the fickle stock market.

Promotion at the place of work is indicated if vedhas are absent. There is no long term vedha of any planet, which is good. Once Saturn moves to Capricorn, the 6th house transit of Saturn will further help you.

Association of people of reputation will help in higher learning and increase in your own wisdom. Your own good work will be appreciated by others.

Jupiter directly aspect the ascendant from 5th house and this will give you the stability of mind and health. For those who are looking for alliances, this is a good period to get married. There will also be happiness through children. There will be a desire to have kids and hence its a good period for conception if your dasha/antardasha periods are also supportive.

6. Virgo

For Virgo, Jupiter is going through the 4th House transit, which is an inauspicious transit. The period would still feel better since you just came out of even worse 3rd House transit. This period brings stability in some sense.

A tough period is indicated by restlessness and emotional ups and downs. Relationship with mother can become difficult.

Be careful with litigation related to the property when other family members are involved as an opposing party. They can implicate you into fraudulent transactions.

There will be some irritants at work since Jupiter does not aspect a friendly sign in 10th house. Relationship with your boss will be somewhat difficult because you will try to impart knowledge in your superiors. Their attitude towards you is less likely to be sympathetic.

Jupiter will also activate the 8th house and 12th house significations. Both the houses are Jupiter’s friendly houses and can indicate betterment with respect to spirituality. Keep an eye on your health. Kapha will dominate weight gain, water retention. Chest infections can occur.

7. Libra

For Libra, Jupiter is going through the 3rd House transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Jupiter’s transit through the 3rd house is usually inauspicious and is only mitigated when the overall chart is strong. This transit usually brings in a change of place or separation in the form of both short and long-distance travels, which may not always be fruitful.

Such transit causes restlessness or the other extreme of laziness. Diseases become worse especially during Jupiter’s retrograde motion. Jupiter will cross over to the 4th house during the year, and it may cause emotional turmoil.

There is a general lack of progress in new projects because the person cant motivate himself/herself to act. Still, at this time, the person usually indulges in a lot of self-promotion and marketing, through spoken and written communication. In other words, there is a lot of talks, but actual changes on the ground are not visible. Relationship with superiors, mentors, gurus and father can suffer due to this problem.

Relationship with spouse will be supporting, since Aries in the 7th house is a friendly sign for Jupiter. Money situation will be good due to Jupiter’s aspect on the 11th house since Jupiter is natural karaka of gains and is intimately related to the 11th house and Leo in the 11th house is another friendly sign for Jupiter. Still, a good amount of planning is required to not fritter away the gains accrued during the transit itself.

8. Scorpio

For Scorpio, Jupiter is going through the 2nd House transit, which is an auspicious transit.

This is a rewarding transit as Jupiter is in its own house. Mental satisfaction occurs because family life will remain peaceful. Expansion of family is also indicated. This means that those looking to get married or having children will have success in these areas. Spouse will be supportive.

This is a period of expansion of wealth along with investment in property. At work, promotion can happen if you have kept your cool and worked hard during the previous cycle. You will be fortunate at the place of work, and you will get help from superiors and the govt of the day. Those involved in research will do well.

At the same time, too much of good thing can happen if you are overoptimistic. Problems with enemies/competitors are indicated and life will not be easy at the place of work, especially if you are in the service industry. You could take more debt than necessary.

Take care of health as well, but there will not be any chronic problems. You can become indulgent with food. Avoid sweet and fatty food otherwise, kapha problems will prevail.

9. Sagittarius

For Sagittarius, Jupiter is going through the 1st House transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Even though Jupiter is the lord of Sagittarius and hence is going through swakshetra transit, this is a period of change and stress because the expectation of oneself is very high. It can also give overconfidence to individuals, which may not work out in your favour and can result in failures and disappointment in the long run. Still, an effort is required and this is a good time for learning and application of such learning. If the effort goes in the right direction, such a transit can be starting period of a major growth cycle.

Expenditure becomes very high. There can be harassment from the government.

Your own education and kids will get sufficient support. Those pursuing high studies will benefit from this transit, although as I warned earlier, overconfidence needs to be avoided.

Health will be good during this period. Cough, cold and general illness will bother you.

10. Capricorn

For Capricorn, Jupiter is going through the 12th House transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

This is a period of rest, reflection and realisation. For Capricorn borns, Sadhe sati is also going on and hence both longer-term transits are becoming adverse for you. Keep your head cool during this transit. Do not stick your neck out and reduce the urge to stand out or be adventurous.

Short term illnesses are indicated, but these will not bother you during the long term. Despite the problems, there will be emotional stability.

Property transactions will suffer if there is a loan element involved. Legal issues will cause problems and hence property paperwork should be done properly. You can have problems if you are involved in the service industry, related to medical, legal or similar fields.

Tighten your belt and ensure that expenditures are in control. There will be some expenditure on charity, and you should be careful about deshe, kale cha patre cha… i.e., donating to the right candidate, at the right time and in the right place.

11. Aquarius

For Aquarius, Jupiter will go through the 11th house transition, which is the most auspicious transit.

Aquarius Rashi borns will experience the best transit of Jupiter. This period indicates general domestic happiness, which means that family and friends will cooperate with you. Friendship with influential people will be developed during this period. Students will have a good time and they will gain knowledge. Those professionals who want to up-skill themselves will also get help from Jupiter.

Cash flow will be good and speculation will also work out. At the same time, financial transactions with siblings and friends should be done with caution.

Health will be good during this period.

12. Pisces

For Pisces, Jupiter will go through the 10th House transit, which is an inauspicious transit. Saturn’s 11th house transit is also almost over and you need to be careful towards your profession during the next one year.

Jupiter is going through 10th house negative transit. Caution, discipline and a low profile – this is the key in this year. The family will help in all ways. You can still become dominating and can have problems with your children. You can avoid these problems by being calm.

Efforts will eventually lead to success, but the path will not be very clear in the beginning. Be careful because involvement in a scandal is indicated. Your name should not be slandered. A change in the profession is indicated, but it may not always to be your liking.

Real estate transactions can have some irritants. Disputes regarding inheritance are also indicated.

Take care of your health. Controlled eating and strict dieting will be required otherwise too much sugar in the system can cause long term kapha dosha. Lung disorders can also develop during this period.

If Jupiter is going through inauspicious transit, the following general remedies will work:

  • Donate jaggary, chana dal to elderly priests
  • Pay respect to your gurus, teachers and do not insult them
  • Pray to Lord Ganesha and Lord Vishnu

For any specific remedies, your horoscope will need to be examined.
