In today’s world, one of the main challenges we face is of employment opportunities. People try to seek jobs, which provide good pay packages and we seldom do consider if the job will lead to work satisfaction. This is a proven fact that we need finances for our day to day living and we require to generate income for sustainability. Our approach to job in many parts of the world has been only to earn a living. This inspite of the fact that we have the ability to do things with our efforts and start business initiatives on our own. Strangely, global unemployment is on the rise and with the increase of unemployment ratio, people are applying for jobs whatever comes in their way. It’s here the problem lies.
As per the World Employment and Social Outlook trends 2016 by the International Labour Organization, it is stated that the World economy is estimated to have expanded by 3.1% in 2015 and in the next two years, the world economy is projected to grow by only around 3%, which is significantly less than before the advent of the global crisis. Another sign of economic weakness is the fact that global trade which had typically expanded twice with the global economy is presently as per or below in line with or at a lower rate than global growth and thus pushing unemployment level to over 197 million in 2015 (As per International Labour Organization).
All these do not provide any promising figures and we need to introspect further towards a new types of business i.e Entrepreneurship from one’s hidden talents. This concept will help one to start an initiative which is wonderful to perform as a job and also generate finance. Chances of failures may be significantly reduced as one is pursuing a talent, where no one is forcing one to do the job, instead it’s by one’s own efforts, one is pursuing his/her dreams.
Lets analyze, if Vedic Astrology can come to any help.
In Vedic Horoscopes, one predicts profession by seeing the 10th House from Ascendant, 5th House, 2nd House and 11th House. However, one’s hidden talents are mostly seen from the 12th House from Ascendant. Since the 12th House is 3rd from the 10th House, one find’s one’s SELF in this house. It is generally stated that the 12th House from the ascendant deals with Foreign Assignments and Foreign Lands, however most predictions are made taking the fact that the 12th house is the house of financial and economic losses leading to huge expenditure. However, to me personally, the 12th House is not only about losses but it’s about losses of your efforts towards reaching one’s dream. It’s about your valor, courage, risk taking abilities, recognition for efforts and perseverance through which one gain’s one life’s goal. It’s not easy to achieve dreams with the 12th house planetary placement, but it’s also not difficult.
So, based on your 12th house and the lord’s placement in the said house, you may have an inner wish to do things which can give you success. Seventh House also plays a lead role in doing business. The position of the seventh lord from the Ascendant in Vedic Astrology is very important in overseeing the type of business one can do for being benefited. However, the 12th house from Ascendant is about one’s own effort towards taking forward one’s hobby into profession.
Let’s analyse as to what happens, if one’s 12th house from ascendant has the below astrological planets placed in their charts:
A. Sun – One of the positive side of this placement is that the native will have an inner talent of interacting with Powerful Authorities especially from Government. The native will have skills to influence Regulatory Authorities and Public Sector Undertakings. Hence, these people may get contracts from these agencies regarding the subject they are working upon. So, Government Affairs/Government Relations and Corporate Affairs are work which may suit them due to their inner talents and dream. These people also wants to be advisors of Powerful people. If these people starts entrepreneurship, chances are there that they may end up getting big contracts from Government if not the planet Sun is afflicted or sitting with malefic or debilitated.
B. Mars – One of the positive side of this placement is that the native will have an inner wish to do business in the legal sector, opening up an electrical shop or electrical venture, getting contracts from the Petrochemical & defense Sector, security related business etc. Again as said earlier, these tendencies depends on the Strength of the planet Mars, its placement in the house with a malefic or benefic and its debilitation or exaltation.
C. Mercury – One of the positive side of this placement is that the native will have an inner wish to open up a restaurant and may love, making new cuisines which if tried can make into a profitable business. Love to make food will help one to open up a restaurant at one point of life. Also these people day dream and can be a great speaker on stage. Since, Mercury is about communication, these persons has an inner talent to give advices and can be a great motivational speaker, writer etc. Again, all these depends of the placement of Mercury in the house with a malefic or benefic and its debilitation or exaltation.
D. Moon – One of the positive side of this placement is that the native will have an inner wish to be a creator. Through their creativity, these people can get name and fame. They love perfection in the work they do and these people have a hidden talent to create, become a designer, architecture, dancers and any form of arts which may require creativity. Again, all these depends of the placement of Moon in the house with a malefic or benefic and its debilitation or exaltation.
E. Venus – One of the positive side of this placement is that the native will have very high artistic sense. These people are also very good finance managers and through their efforts, these people can become very good financial implication strategists, fine arts etc. Again, all these depends of the placement of Venus in the house with a malefic or benefic and its debilitation or exaltation.
F. Jupiter – One of the positive side of this placement is that these natives have a hidden talent to become a great philosopher, spiritual leader and motivational speaker. They have a hidden talent to value other modern and ancient cultures and have exceptional knowledge about them. They are also good in dancing art. Again, all these depends on the placement of Jupiter in the house with a malefic or benefic and its debilitation or exaltation.
G. Saturn – One of the positive side of this placement is that these natives can become great leader of the masses. People automatically follow them due to their social activities. Though Saturn will at one point of time delay their progress but can make them famous after constant efforts. These people are great photographers. They have an inner talent on photography and also may take photography as a profession. Saturn also makes the natives excel in public speeches and stand with the weaker sections of the society. Again, all these depends of the placement of Saturn in the house with a malefic or benefic and its debilitation or exaltation.
H. Rahu – One of the positive side of this placement is that these natives will become great actor/actress, magician, illusionist etc. They can have great skill to be in television serials and can also be seen as a news editor or controlling media. Again, all these depends on the placement of Rahu in the house with a malefic or benefic etc.
I. Ketu – One of the positive side of this placement is that these natives will be spiritually connected to the almighty and can become great spiritual leaders, writers and spiritual gurus. Again, all these depends on the placement of Ketu in the house with a malefic or benefic etc.
Often people just do things as a hobby but imagine if we take that our hobby further into entrepreneurship & business, these can really open up a great source of income. No professions in today’s world are high level or low level. Even selling coffee/tea can help one to get a new contact towards opening up a bigger shop and latter these people can be a good tea or business manager. There is no end to ones hidden financial aspirations, but I personally feel that if one follows one’s hidden talents and turns into opportunities, it may provide good dividends in future.
This is just a simple astrological analysis about one’s hidden talents, which are best analyzed observing the planets position in one’s house, the type of the house, the lord of the house which may be benefic or non benefic, the strength of the 12th house and the strength of the 12th house planets etc.
The above write up is a general prediction and these are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.
