Article 69: Creating Entrepreneurship & Small Business Through Inner Talents – A Vedic Astrology Analysis

Placeholder Image

Life is all about ideas and its these concepts which makes one life fruitful. Its all about those small things which makes you get interested and you try to pursue those talents to make your life meaningful. Over the years, I have understood that you need not go for something big or create big, but it’s those small things in ‘you’ which often is less noticed by the world including ‘you’, which is the key to any future big ventures.

As the day starts one is bounced with notifications from mobile handsets which tells you about the type of movies you should watch, the type of music you should listen, the type of revolutions you need to join, the type of food you need to eat, the difficult life from the political field, the expenditures and it’s never ending stories. The question lies is how do you find yourself amongst all these. How is it possible to constantly motivate yourself amidst these online notifications, digital and discouraging physical world, when more than half of the world will let you know that ‘its difficult and you do not have the right skillset to do the same.” However, that isn’t true, yet we live agreeing to other people’s opinions and do the same mistake again and again.

If you are reading this personal thought of mine, then I will request you to focus on those small things of your life, where you showed extraordinariness. These moments may be that particular photograph, which brought smile in your face and you wonder how did you clicked such a brilliant snap or may be that simple art of message which changed completely another human’s life for higher good. These are the special talents which one have and in the midst of all those constant negative thoughts, work pressure, competition etc. it’s lost. Its time to bring back the same in your lives.

Entrepreneurship or Starting your own Small Business is a wonderful feeling, as it makes you owner of your dreams with a message to the physical world, that my existence in this world is to do something innovative & creative through my special talents.

As I write today, I thought of focusing on the Astrological Cosmic Planet Mercury and its effects on our ideas. Mercury rules various types of professions. These people can be great writer, ambassadors, lecturer, publisher, journalists, audit and accountants, public speakers, imports & exports, lawyers, editors, mathematicians, restaurant owners, chefs etc. The most important factor is its rulership on ideas.

People having good Mercury are always filled up with great ideas and these people are the solution providers. These are humans who in the worst situations will also try to provide a solution for every problem. In Vedic Astrology, it is often seen that this planet rules one’s Maternal Uncle, Younger Brother and Sister.

So, the question comes that as an Entrepreneur or an owner of a small business, do you need to have a good Mercury placement? The answer is that its an added advantage if you are blessed by the Planet Mercury. The simple reason is because what you speak and how you speak, provides you with either possibilities or can call one’s doomsday. A strong placement of Mercury in any of the position will bless one with great power of orator ship through which one can sell one’s products. In Vedic Horoscope, one can find that Mercury rules the sign of Gemini and Virgo and the Nakshatras ruled by this planet is ‘Ashlesha (106 degree 40 minutes to 120 degrees of a zodiac), Jyestha (226 degree 40 minutes to 240 degrees of a zodiac) and Revati (346 degree 40 minutes to 360 degree of a zodiac)’. Placement of Mercury in any of these signs will have a different effect on your ideas, thoughts and the ways one’s communicate. By that I mean that your talk will be soothing to listen as you innovate your talk to make your product sellable.

In the ancient texts the Gayatri Mantra is chanted as:

oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ suvaḥ

tatsaviturvareṇyaṃ

bhargo devasyadhīmahi

dhiyo yo naḥ prachodayāt

In my own way, I have understood that this mantra is a prayer to the God Savitur, who appears through the lord Sun to show the eternal light that has given birth to all the three Worlds. The Gayatri mantra is dedicated to Lord Savituṛ, a Vedic Sun deity. The meaning as spoken by Swami Vivekananda is, we meditate on the glory of that Being who has produced this universe; may He enlighten our minds.

Let’s observe here that Bhur has the meaning of Earth, which is the abode of Humans and Mercury or the intellect rules here. Hence though the mantra tells about the Earth, Sun and Moon, it helps us to understand the importance of Intellect.

So, does life tells that if your Mercury is not well placed, will you not able to communicate better? The answer is negative. As whatever may be the position of the Astrological planet Mercury and its aspect on other planet or vice-versa, it will create opportunities based on the conjunction of those planet. So, you may find people communicating in different ways, some using too much of facial expressions, some using hands, some through writing, some through drawing etc. Once Mercury gets activated, you have already sold your products and have generated ideas for the better. So, listen to your heart and focus on the small things which are your special talents and nurture those before activating your Mercury to tell to the world that YOU ARE AN EXTRA-ORDINARY HUMAN BEING AND YOU CREATED YOUR OWN ENTREPRENEURSHIP / BUSINESS VENTURE.

Thanks for reading. The above small brief is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers or others in the same or related sectors. I look forward to your comments. 

While Destiny is hard work and luck, we wish everyone great success in one’s good endeavours. The above article is based on my experience of reading astrology subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for years.

Entrepreneurship, Creating Your Own Business Destiny – An Astrological Analysis (Article 68)

The History of the World had witnessed so many ups and downs. It has gazed Empires rising and fall, it has seen business rise from the scratches and lost in the mists of time. Over years, this planet had watched new Generations rise to innovative solutions only to address the immediate problems of all living species and had created business out of nothing.

Some of the world’s greatest organizations have started their journey due to a vision, which addressed human’s immediate problems and outshined all for years. They still exist and inspire, because either they are very streamlined or they have carried the ethics and values of their ‘founding figures’. The world is a much better place as the fabulous stories of those great entrepreneurs encourage us, motivate us, inspire us to see the world in a new way and help us in creating a spark in ourselves even in times when we are in distress, depression and tribulations.

Say, it may be Steve Jobs, Rose Blumkin, Lawrence Edward Page, Sergey Brin, Walter Elias Disney, Madam C. J. Walker, Andrew Carnegie, Colonel Harland David Sanders, Hans Christian Anderson etc their creative stories will always remain as a motivation for the seekers who wants to follow their own passion of building newer art or products through their inner talents. There are many others extraordinary humans who have undergone satisfaction through their own personal entrepreneurship ventures and have succeeded in their own sector by constantly following their passion. There is also heart sank tales, where it states about the failures of budding entrepreneurs due to various reasons. It’s a constant contest between success and failure, which makes an individual come out in flying colours and move on having faith on one’s talent, to pursue the souls urge of creation and innovation.

Astrology or Cosmic Science foretells or predicts things based on one’s placement of planets as well as their position in a specific Nakshatra or in a specific division called padas. However, everyone in their astrological horoscope have the third house planet which will always motivate one-self to move ahead irrespective of great challenges. That’s the cosmic spirit which helps one to foster courage and encouragement to pursue one’s goal.

In my reading of Astrology for over years, I have found that there is nothing wrong or right. It’s the perception in which you see or receive a particular condition or situation. Any afflicted astrological placement of planets one may have in any Vedic Astrology Chart, in terms of Relationships whether Business or legal, is often related to one’s 7th Lord from Ascendant in the D1 Vedic Chart. By D1 chart, I mean, the horoscope which is the main Ascendant Chart. But whatever the 7th Lord condition may be, the 3rd Lord will always inspire or motivate you to do the things which you love to do in your life.

Now, lets take an example of a founder of a Restaurant, an American fast food restaurant chain headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, that specializes in fried chicken. Let’s analyse the founder’s chart based on the data of date of birth taken from online websites. (Please note that this is only for the purpose of understanding astrology through research)

chart3

The above horoscope clearly shows that this Gentleman have a very strong cosmic planet Mercury, followed by a very strong Venus. Analysing the 3rd House, I find that its ruled by Aquarius. It’s the sign which helps any form of weak establishment to grow. Now this sign is sitting in the 9th House in the Purva-phalguni Nakshatra. So, this shows that this Gentleman will have a creative approach in all his ventures. If you look at the 12th house from the Ascendant then one can observe that Planet Mars is sitting in Jyestha Nakshatra which is again ruled by planet Mercury. Interestingly the 7th Lord Mercury is sitting in the Hasta Nakshatra in the tenth house of Virgo in its own sign, which adds on to the power of this planet. If you see the strength of the planets, it’s no surprise that Planet Mercury has the highest strength in the chart and that determines that either this person will love writing, communicating or would be great in cooking and opening up a restaurant. I have observed that the 12th house and its significance do make a human’s name cross boundaries. Here if you analyse the position of Mars in the horoscope then one can easily find that Scorpio Mars will extend that fire, that strength to go ahead in this human’s business. Mars in Mercury nakshatra for a Hasta Nakshatra means that he is going to do something which is by his own hand. If you analyse this Nakshatra closely, you can find that it’s symbol is hand and the body parts are fingers. Mercury in this Nakshatra means that it has the power and ability to achieve whatever they want and they progress towards achieving their goal. Now, looking at the D7 divisional chart, we can find that Mercury is in the 7th house in Moon Sign of Cancer with Mars in aspect with Moon. That also again states that this business has to do something with Fire and Restaurant and some type of food which is fiery and spicy. Since Mars is sitting in Jyestha Nakshatra and based on its Gana, it will instigate him to prepare foods which will not be vegetarian. However, proximity of planet Ketu with Mars lead to delay and struggles. This Gentleman became famous for one its best Fried Chicken in the world. Now this is the world’s second-largest restaurant chain as of 2018.

There are many examples which will showcase beautiful stories, full of trials and tribulations. If you read their stories on Entrepreneurship, then one can understand that business ventures were not easy for all these individuals. They faced many failures, struggles and challenges and yet moved on because the passion of creation was far greater than the hurdles. So, its not a matter of fact, if one is a teenager, a millennial, an adult, a middle age human or a retired individual, we all can create better solutions for the world, if only we have the passion to follow the same.

The only limitation we have is in our mind.

Once we overcome that limitation, everything is possible in this world. It’s good to work for others, if you have the same passion and vision as your present organization. However, if your talents are elsewhere i.e. in photography, writing, singing, travelling etc my suggestion is at least invest some part of your free time to do the things you love to do. Who knows one day, you may become one of the best creators in the world and a successful ENTREPRENEUR.

Astrology can help one to understand the type of Business one can invest by one’s efforts. It can help to analyse the strengths and state ways to strengthen one’s mind so as to bring focus towards one’s life’s mission and vision towards creating a business of one’s own through entrepreneurship.

As the heading goes, everyone can become an entrepreneur if we have the passion to visualize our dreams and take a small moment in investing on the same.

Thanks for reading. The above small brief is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers or others in the same or related sectors.

While Destiny is hard work and luck, we wish everyone great success in one’s good endeavours. The above article is based on my experience of reading astrology subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for years.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 62: Business Learning from the Cosmic Swati Nakshatra: A Vedic Astrology Analysis

delicate-arch-night-stars-landscape.jpg
Sky Filled With Stars

After reading astrology for years, I came to the conclusion that, more I study and research this, the more I learn new things from this Cosmic Science. This study has led me to forsake much of my ego and I have come to understand that we all are governed by the planetary forces. I have understood that astrological planets are energies which govern our destinies based on their movement in the heavenly sky. Its these energies which affect our day to day lives. However, there are more to the story than what is written here. Let me introduce here the word Nakshatras.

Now the question lies as to what are Nakshatras? The ancient story goes that Nakshatras are the twenty-eight daughters of Daksha Prajapati. The King wanted Lord Moon to marry all his twenty-eight daughters. It was proposed that Lord Moon have to stay with one wife each day and would cross over to the next. However, after few days special preference started for the Wife Rohini, which made other wives jealous. Seeing this, the wives reported the injustice to their father King Prajapati. The king got angry and cursed Lord Moon. A curse activated negative aspects for the Lord Moon and he started suffering. Seeing his pitiful condition, his wives went to King Daksha once again and he gave his sermon that this curse cannot be taken back and that Lord Moon would die and will be reborn every month and hence we see the waxing and waning of the Lord Moon. Another story goes that Lord Ganesha, cursed Lord Moon and after seeing his terrible condition, he returned back his blasphemy with waxing and waning of the Moon every month.

As days passed, these Nakshatras brightened up in the cosmic sky and as the ancient sages used to say that these Nakshatras is of length 13 degrees and 20 minutes and that the sky is divided into 27 Nakshatras. The 28th Nakshatra is rather small and is known as the Abijit Nakshatra. These Nakshatras are again divided into three cycles of nine and are ruled by 9 planets. These cosmic planets are Lord Sun, Lord Moon, Lord Saturn, Lord Venus, Lord Mercury, Lord Jupiter, Lord Rahu and Lord Ketu. The Lord Moon placement in a Nakshatra forms the basis of ones Nature and the reason for which one is born.

When a human takes birth, it’s all about one’s pure soul and it’s all about us and our surroundings. Slowly, as the soul transit in years, the thought process gets blocked and is not able to deliver as per the life’s path and the human forgets the reason as to why the soul was born in this planet Earth?

The soul starts moving towards that word ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’ and hence creates a false ego in his/her domain and cannot get out of that circle. Here comes the great role of the Swati Nakshatra, which is all about: ‘FREEDOM’. Yes, you need to be free from all these afflictions, forsake your ego, your small world and look beyond the skies and appreciate the Universe and its energies for which, you have been sent to perform some specific task in this world.

Swati or Svati Nakshatra’s lord is Vayu (Wind), the pranic force for which we all can breathe and exist. All species can exist because of the wind as we all need air to breathe. So, these nakshatra provides you energy to breathe in a free air and hence the ‘freedom’. The term Swati also means sword and hence it can be used for both positive and negative reasons. Vayu is the lord which have drank the nectar for eternity and is much evolved and hence being the Lord of Swati, these make Swati Nakshatra humans much more understanding and allows them to find real motivation. However, these Nakshatra people need to forsake their egos and understand their true self.

Understanding one’s true self is very essential as these nakshatra tries to serve millions through their deeds on higher good and that’s where the satisfaction comes from. Since this Nakshatra is ruled by Rahu, it creates a revolutionary soul. By that I do not mean that it’s a soul which creates a mass revolution, but revolution in terms of ideas, thoughts, activities which can serve higher good. Since Swati falls in Libra from 6 degree 40 minutes to 20 degrees, its very far away from the Sun. So, by that Swati people have to leave their own egos, me, mine nature so as to succeed in this birth. That’s what makes this article very special to me as this is the place where the rays of the Sun are very less and one need to go deeper to understand one’s existence.

The colour represented by this Nakshatra is black, which is again a beautiful colour as everything on this universe is created from darkness. Black is also the colour of the Yama and that means, this nakshatra people can understand better the meaning between life and death. Some says that Lord Hanuman, was born in this Nakshatra. His devotion for Lord Rama is so great that he is now worshipped as one of the Lords for his exemplary skills, talents, intellect and devotion. That’s the point which I wanted to make here. This nakshatra humans are very focused in their work and if they can pursue the same with complete devotion, miracles happen with them. The motivation factor for these nakshatra is material gain but it comes to them through their work. So, though Artha is something which they want, they receive the same through their excellent service for the masses.

Entrepreneurship skills also needs devotion and determination. Hence, it’s the energy of this nakshatra which is required to make one successful. Let your work and your service be your motivation and you keep moving on with your agenda of providing unique service for higher good. Know that everything started from darkness and that your work is going to bring light, where there was none. These can only happen, when we forsake ego. Life is beautiful only if we understand the reason of our existence.
