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.

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 in politics or 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.


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.

It was 2007–2008 when the global financial crisis started, which still remains as a nightmare amongst many and is one of great financial tragedies since the great depression of the 1930’s. The emergency began in the year 2007 with a crisis in the mortgage market and developed into a full-blown international banking crisis leading to unemployment. Slowly and steadily this financial crisis passed on to other regions of the world and led to loss of employment.

Employment opportunities may be growing on paper throughout the world, but in real terms it is much less for the overcrowded highly educated population. Each year thousands of universities give rise to intellectuals and educated candidates for the world, but how many of them do get through their dream jobs. The figure is less and the struggles are more. Knowledge in yester years was for knowing the subject and researching on those sectors where one’s interest likes. Days have changed and now in many parts of the world demand of employment and salary package have over-powered one’s interest. These days subjects are chosen based on market opportunities. All these also lead to saturation of job market for the particular sector thus leading to loss in employment.

Few people in the world does things of their own interest. If one has a talent, one can easily find new innovative ways to market them. It does not require any special skills but one’s own interest which makes one find new ways towards earning finances.

Entrepreneurship do play a great role in today’s world and is alternative for jobs. After doing my research on astrology horoscope analysis, personally I felt that 7th house from ascendant do play a great role in business along with the first house i.e ascendant.

My previous articles were on motivation wherein I have mentioned that the 3rd House from the Ascendant/Lagna in Vedic Astrology has lots to say about one’s inspiration and motivation. This along with the 7th house from ascendant and 1st house i.e ascendant in ones vedic horoscope tells a lot about one’s entrepreneurship opportunities. One may wonder as to how is the first house lord related to business and entrepreneurship, when 7th house from ascendant( lagna) and its lord is related to business. The fact lies that the First house states a lot about yourself. Have you heard a saying – ‘Business Mindset’. Well that is what matters and the type of the Lord situated in the first house or the lord of the first house and its combinations with other planets in any houses in a vedic horoscope tells a lot about ones personality, likeliness, mind set etc. So, one can now analyse, as why the Ascendant/First House do play a great role in ones Business/Entrepreneurship in vedic astrology.

Here in this article, let me discuss about various combinations of the seventh house/ascendant lord with other houses which may affect one’s attitude towards business and entrepreneurship. For example, when the seventh lord is placed in the first house i.e ascendant, the native tries to keep one’s entrepreneurship in its own hand. The native is independent and likes to have full control over one’s business. The native excels in those sectors, where he/she has full control over the business. The type of business though depends on the lord of the seventh house, its placements and combinations.

If the 7th lord is in the 2nd house, then the native takes over the family business or does entrepreneurship with one’s younger siblings. The native may also like to take up singing, can become an orator or can become a motivational speaker. This type of placement helps one to make finances through inspiration efforts or can help open educational institutions. These combinations depending on the power of the planets also helps in opening of institutions which can ultimately benefit the native.

Interesting part is when the 7th lord sits in the third house. This native can do entrepreneurship or can earn finances through one’s own efforts like motivational speaker. Depending on the 3rd lord and the placement of the 7th lord here in degrees, these can be a wonderful chart to do entrepreneurship on motivation, opening up a travel agency, opening up a publishing house, opening up a network company etc. If the 7th lord is not afflicted or malefic, the native tries to do things on his/her own. That’s the beauty of a person whose 7th lord is placed in the 3rd house from ascendant.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 4th house then its good astrological yoga. Whatever entrepreneurship opportunities one will take will have the backing of one’s spouse. The type of entrepreneurship opportunities may be of interior designing, gardening, home furnishing, furniture making, vehicle and transport, water related business etc. These again depend on the type of the 7th lord and its combination. Generally, this is a good yoga as the Kendra lord is placed in another Kendra house.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 5th house, then business or entrepreneurship flourishes due to one’s creativity. The more creative work one makes the more chances of flourishing in entrepreneurship ventures. Also, this is also the chart where one does entrepreneurship on opening shops for kids, toys, play schools, opening kinder gardens, day care for kids etc. However, it is worth mentioning that this placement helps more, if one is always creative in one’s business ventures.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 6th house, then native tends to do entrepreneurship with medical equipment. The 7th lord also makes the native do business on alternate sources of medicines like Ayurveda, Unani system etc. The native also tends to become a teacher of yoga. However, this combination is challenging because the 7th lord is placed in 12th from its own house. So, much effort is required for doing entrepreneurship ventures. There are chances that the business can start in a foreign land or clients can be from foreign lands.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 7th house, it’s a good combination for entrepreneurship opportunities in the legal sector, opening up consultations in these sectors. This placement also states about opening up match making websites, becoming a romantic writer, writing tales about valor and courage etc. This placement also makes one’s spouse help in business ventures.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 8th house, it’s a good combination for doing entrepreneurship on research and development or doing business on opening up of R&D centres related to sectors based on the 7th lord planet and the 8th lord planet. This placement is also for those who wanted to work as private detectives or for those who are extraordinary in analytics.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 9th house, it’s a good combination for doing entrepreneurship on publishing, opening up of a publishing house etc. It’s also about opening up a transport or travel house. The 7th lord in the 9th house is all about doing things which are in movement and that means also moving of minds which denotes spirituality. Any entrepreneurship on spirituality is seen from these placements.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 10th house, it’s a great combination and these denotes that the native will succeed in one’s professional ventures. The native will act as the entrepreneur in the job and will be at command. The type of entrepreneurship depends on the nature of the 7th house lord. This is a good placement because the 7th lord is in kendra to itself and hence it gives very good results.

If the 7th lord is in the 11th house, it’s a placement which suggests that entrepreneurship opportunities are to be tried with network and elder siblings. So, one tends to find common interests and join hands for business. The 7th lord and its placements in the 11th house also states that spouse will try to motivate in one’s ventures.

If the 7th lord is in the 12th house, it’s a difficult placement but if one can break the challenges with determination, then the native gets great success from foreign ventures or gets clients or orders from foreign countries. The native may also try to do entrepreneurship on social business or likely to take up social projects.

7th house from ascendant in vedic astrology and 7th house lord has lots to tell about one’s business strategies, its outcomes and the way forward. However, for entrepreneurship opportunities, one also need to also check about the strength of the 2nd house from ascendant, 3rd house, the astak varga system, planetary combination and one’s degrees etc.

Entrepreneurship may not be easy but if one has determination and passion, one can do wonders. During challenging times, the native need to strengthen one’s 3rd house for moving ahead in life.

Stay Motivated and Inspire Others…

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.
