In today’s world anxiety, depression and frustrations are concerns in human society. In turbulent times its ‘hope’ which helps one to grow and move further in difficult times. Through the audacity of hope, one is able to reach ones goal and dreams. Interestingly faith, determination and hope help one to fight over the challenges and move forward. This word has its origin in the word “hopa” which in old English has the meaning, ‘confidence in the future’ (as per some texts). The word hope from hopa has dominated history. It’s this word which brings courage to the tormented, anguish, distressed & painful mind.
Vedic astrology has a part to play in inspiring an individual and the word hope can be seen from the 3rd House of a vedic horoscope. 3rd house from Ascendant/Lagna determines the confidence of the person. 3rd house from ascendant provides one with a lot of hope in difficult times.

This is a general write-up and is a general prediction. Inspiration to uplift ones mood varies from person to person and astrology is just one side of predicting the same. Also there are other factors that need to be analyzed in astrology to understand about encouragement during difficult times including the divisional charts, mahadasha, Gocchar movements of major planets etc. This write-up is just a general analysis and 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.
