ALL ABOUT BUSINESS ASTROLOGY
It was dark and as I moved home from my office, tension gripped me for my next day office assignments, which takes much of my private time. I had a strong aversion to these tasks which makes me shorten my personal time with concomitant anxiety, tensions and another related phenomenon. This is not a censorious talk based on the fact that I am a workaholic. Understanding this, one day I came across an unknown citizen of this mother Earth selling Tea in one corner of the globe who was equally tensed and with a smiling face managed his ‘own business’. Speaking with this human incognito, I understood, what does it mean to be an Entrepreneur, even though you are in stress, you actually work for your OWN organization or business.
I was listening to one entrepreneur a few days back and his struggling tales about small business. Brooding on his unhappy thoughts about job and his stress, he started his own small business based on his inner talent.
As per the Global Entrepreneurship Index Rankings, United States of America ranks first followed by Switzerland and Canada. India has to work a lot to infuse the concept of Small Business & Entrepreneurship in millions. It is well known that enterprise is a crucial engine of economic growth and without enterprise and entrepreneurs, there would be less innovations and few new jobs. Instead of getting frustrated in a formidable job and colleagues, it is better to try with one’s entrepreneurship ventures.
In my earlier articles, I have described how to get motivated, the importance of 7th house in vedic astrology and also the importance of 1st house in vedic astrology. Today, let us discuss on the 12th house and its long- term effects for establishing yourself as a business human. Among the various houses in a Vedic Horoscope, the 12th house is considered as the house for confinement, secluded places, high expenses, enlightenment, Far away places, lands, asceticism, Hospitals, Imprisonment etc. While many articles in ancient books also states that the 12th house is for wastage, stingy, sole, quietus, Restrictions, Expenses, Extra Marital Affairs, Left Eye etc.
Many have a premonition that 12th house is a house which is about expenses, confinement and is not good. To some extent its true, however personally after reading over the years, I understood that this house is one of the most opportune house for reversing one’s bad fortune into opportunities. In a way, entrepreneurship also states the same thing. It’s all about giving a trying and not to sit and lament. The problem is we want immediate gains, which do happen, when we apply for a job and get the salary in the next month. However, as per Elisabeth Kubler Ross, a Swiss American Psychiatrist, the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known loss and have found their way out of those depths.
12th house in Vedic astrology plays a great part in one’s life and tend to do expense in those areas which the planet of 12th house controls. I have seen in many horoscopes that those having their 12th house lord as Saturn having Aquarius Ascendant are either in non-profits helping people or are political figures based on their interaction with masses. These people however, spends almost their entire money into construction activities due to planet Saturn. Let’s analyse a chart whose 12th house from Ascendant is zodiac Capricorn. The sign Capricorn is a sign which is described as a goat in western astrology and in the Indian tradition it is taken as a crocodile with the face and neck of a deer. Hard work, practicality and prudence are the key words to describe this sign ruled by Lord Saturn. Since 12th Sign is Capricorn and 10th house from Ascendant is Scorpio, its understood that the person may take up a challenging job as detective, CID, Police, Military Intelligence etc. If Planet Mercury sits with Sun in this house of Scorpio, the native may also take up Lectureship as per vedic astrology.
Researching on Astrology, can find the answers to the type of business and the areas of entrepreneurship, one should focus on. My analysis suggests that one should do entrepreneurship on a subject that is one’s passion. So, does astrology support this theory?
The solutions to these questions lies by looking at your 3rd house, 7th house, 11th house from ascendant and checking ones exalted planets or strong planets in your chart. It also depends on the Astak varga system, Shadbala table of your horoscope and other parameters.
The divisional charts state a lot about one’s wishes on taking entrepreneurship ventures and persistent work on the same leads to success. While the 3rd house from the ascendant provides one with motivation and strength to move on after facing difficulties, the 7th house from ascendant deals with business and legal documents. Since the first house is 7th from the 7th house, so business and entrepreneurship dealings and wish is seen from the first house. So, the first house i.e the ascendant is not only about one’s appearance, but also about ones inner strength to pursue ones business. There are many astrological yoga which do help to understand about entrepreneurship opportunities in astrology and what types of business one is prone to. If the 7th Lord sits in the ascendant, then one will try to do business which is run by the self.
So, one may think that the name and fame of the individual will be due to the job and to some extent, it may be true, however, if the human can go forward with helping others by connecting with the masses in various forms, the same person’s name can cross boundaries of districts, states and countries based on the position of Saturn.
By the same logic and out of my understanding, I have seen many people becoming World Famous because of 12th house combinations since those are the things which you love to do and like spending on them. Expense means not only financial expense, it also means expense of energy. So, if you have to make your hobby into entrepreneurship, then do expense of energy for the 12th house activities. However, 12th house activities take time and puts forward innumerable challenges and if you can overcome the same, your name and fame crosses boundaries.
The 11th house from ascendant is the fifth house from the 7th house. So, any creativity in the business is analysed by this house. The more creative you are in your business, chances are there that it will flourish more and will have mass appeal. If there is a relation between the 11th and 7th house, it will lead to lots of creativity in business ventures.
Horoscopes do tell a lot about one individual and the soul’s inner wish. Continuous efforts in one’s goal will definitely lead to great success in days. So, does that mean that everyone can do business? The answer to this is partially ‘yes’ because everyone has a 7th house, 11th house, 1st house and 2nd house in Vedic Astrology. Now, we need to figure out as to what ways the astrological planets are placed and in the other divisional charts. But I strongly feel that if one’s intention is good and noble, everyone can succeed in the entrepreneurship ventures. You learn from your own failures and no matter even if your 7th lord is placed in the wrong house, wrong combination, debilitated, retrograde etc, you will succeed as all astrological planets gives results based on ones ‘free will’.
Type of business can also be determined by exalted planets in ones D1 chart. Any planets which is exalted and is placed in Kendra and in its own house or a friendly house can help in entrepreneurship opportunities. This is also determined by the types of Nakshatras these planets are placed, whether the planets are Ashwini Nakshatra ruled by Ketu, Bharini Nakshatra ruled by Venus, Krittika Nakshatra ruled by Sun, Rohini Nakshatra ruled by Moon, Mrigasira Nakshatra ruled by Mars, Ardra Nakshatra ruled by Rahu, Punarvasu Nakshatra ruled by Jupiter, Pushya Nakshtar ruled by Saturn, Ashlesha Nakshtara ruled by Mercury, Magha Nakshatra ruled by Ketu, Purva Phalguni Nakshatra ruled by Venus, Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra ruled by Sun, Hasta Nakshatra ruled by Moon, Chitra Nakshatra ruled by Mars, Swati Nakshtara ruled by Rahu, Vishakha Nakshatra ruled by Jupiter, Anuradha Nakshatra ruled by Saturn, Jyestha Nakshatra ruled by Mercury, Mula Nakshatra ruled by Ketu, Purva Ashadha Nakshatra ruled by Venus, Uttara Ashadha ruled by Sun, Abhijit Nakshatra which is from 6 degree 40 minutes to 10 degree to 53 minutes in Capricorn, Shravana Nakshatra ruled by Moon, Dhanishta nakshatra ruled by Mars, shatabhishek Nakshatra ruled by Rahu, Purva Bhadra Nakshatra ruled by Jupiter, Uttara Bhadra Nakshatra ruled by Saturn and Revati Nakshatra ruled by Mercury.
So, each astrological planets will give different results when situated in a particular house in a particular nakshatra. That will determine the type of liking one will have on a subject in which you want to go for entrepreneurship.
Let’s take another example of a writer who wrote on fantasy world and her books crossed borders. She struggled in her initial years to publish her book and no publisher wanted to publish the same from an unknown writer. Once the first book got published, her name and fame spread across countries with Hollywood movies made on her book.
Let’s analyse the Vedic Horoscope chart, which I obtained from one of the astrological websites. From the above chart it is observed that her ascendant is Libra and the 12th house from Lagna/Ascendant is is Mercury which is sitting in her 11th house of Leo along with the Moon. The planet of finances is situated in the 12th house of Mercury which also meant that apart from writing, she may have to lose her immediate family. Lets now focus only on her own venture that is ‘Writing Entrepreneurship’ and that is the 12th house.
Mercury rules her 12th house and with Mars sitting on the same, she will be prone to writing, but writing under challenges from her own family. She has to meet the challenge which can be emotional and yet focus out of great challenges to go on with her writings/communication skills. Finally successful, she established her name and fame as a writer. Now look at the 5th house from the ascendant, here planet Saturn is placed in the same sign of creativity, which states that are writings will be a treasure for the masses. That’s what happened with her.
When I was in Bangalore, India, I have seen in Newspaper reports that people were standing from 4 am to get the first copy of her book. Well, all these were not done in a day specially with the 12th house, which brings enormous challenges and obstacles, which ultimately leads to great success. So, spend some time with your hobby and inner talent as per your 12th house and one can start doing entrepreneurship on the same to move forward in life. When you focus on the 12th house, remember a quotation from Dita Von Teese, an famous Dancer that Some Days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to Experience sadness to know happiness and I remind myself that not everyday is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is!
Entrepreneurship or doing your own business is a wonderful thing as the society can meet many of their needs through wonderful innovations which you made and the world will remember you for the wonderful contributions you did for your future generations.
