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

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.

Thanks for reading.

In the Cosmic Sky, there will be a major transition and on 7th March, 2019 the North Node of the Moon is transiting to the Zodiac sign Gemini. However, as per calculations, the North Node of the Moon, the astrological planet Rahu is scheduled to transit from 23 March, 2019 at 1.17 pm as per some astrologers.

This being a major transit after almost one year 8 months, it is likely to influence all of us in various ways. The zodiac sign Gemini has two and one fourth nakshatras. It may be noted that these Nakshatras represent the mind, the higher or lower energies and uncertainties. So, what will happen when the north node of the Moon will transit into the Punarvasu Nakshatra during this period? It is to be noted that Purnavasu Nakshatra is ruled by the astrological planet Jupiter.

For the next one year and eight months, the astrological planet Rahu will transit through the Nakshatras Punarvasu, Ardra and Mrigasira. Now as this karmic planet moves forward, there will be various happenings as per Business and Entrepreneurship is concerned. While Punarvasu is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the other Nakshatras like Ardra and Mrigasira is ruled by planet Rahu and Mars respectively. Hence in the Gemini Zodiac sign as per the timing of the events, a lot of communications, ups and downs will be seen in various sectors, where the planet Rahu will transit.

  11. Trade including Export and Import

The North Node of the Moon is comfortable in the 3rd pada of Purnavasu Nakshatra and it will be empowered to provide intelligence to Zodiac sign Gemini. Here the astrological planet Rahu will work as thinker and analyst.  When this planet transits to the second pada of the Purnvasu Nakshatra i.e from 23 degree 20 seconds to 26 degree 40 seconds, astrological planet Rahu will be at its best and will act like an exalted planet. The North Node of the moon is likely to bless the following business during this time.

It must be remembered that while the North Node of the Moon crosses through the Gemini Sign, the south node of the Moon will be exactly opposite side and will transit through the warrior zodiac sign Sagittarius in first pada of Uttara Asadhra Nakshatra. With the transit of Planet Ketu in the 26 degree 40 seconds to 30 degrees in Sagitarrius in the first pada of Uttara Asadhra, it will bring philosophical new thinking’s, changing the way how one use to work and will bring up new talents for the market.

The dreaded astrological planet Rahu has always been shuddering many for sudden mis-happenings. The planet Rahu has a fearful look, dark in complexion and its body has a serpent appearance, which indicates tamasic nature. Planet Rahu’s vehicle is a lion. This astrological planet acts like Planet Saturn and is the cause of suddenness in any event. This planet is friendly to the Mercury, Venus and Saturn. This astrological planet is neutral to Jupiter and is enemy are astrological planets like Sun, Moon and Mars. Planet Rahu is the karaka of the following factors like: innovations, inventions, gambling, any form of revolution, any form of social and political movements, snake bites, tumours in the body (if malefic with Jupiter).

Hence from the Karaka, it is well understood that this planet Rahu represents some of the few known diseases like cancer, mental disturbances, hallucinations, illusions etc. It is also related to hiccups and pain in the body and it’s the karaka of very old age. If planet Rahu is afflicted with the planet Sun, then it may cause heart trouble. Planet Rahu also causes leprosy and also results in pain or injury in the feet.

Planet Rahu’s direction is south west and signifies wild tribes. However, Rahu generally means foreign connections and is significant of non-hindus and Buddhism. If Rahu is well positioned in one’s chart, one will do air travel and it also denotes paternal grandfather and maternal grandmother.

Planet Rahu combination with planet Sun tend to have an adverse effect and it takes from the native one’s energy and hence the native incline to face obstruction from Government, fatherly figure etc. However, if Rahu is well placed in the house in a friendly nakshatra, the effects will reverse. After a certain age for planet Sun and Rahu combination, planet Sun comes out of the effect of Rahu and hence provides good results after the age of 30-31 years.

If the planet Rahu is in combination with planet Moon, then planet Rahu either increases the quality of the Moon or it darkens the planet Moon based on this combination. Moon signifies mind and also water. Hence, this person will have a tendency to be near water or will tend to use more water than any other normal person.

Combination of planet Rahu with Mars is very high energy. This combination brings with it the negative energy of revenge, the urge to push forward one-self to the extremes. Natives with this combination should keep patience, have faith in the almighty and do things which can help others.

But then the question lies as what is this astrological planet Rahu? Is it just a malefic or benefic planet or it is more about matters which is larger than life? Planet Rahu is an astrological planet which is also a karmic planet. The position where Rahu is placed is the native’s karma for this birth. So, the individual tend to focus on factors where Rahu and its dispositor sits. About 180 degrees from the planet Rahu is the spiritual planet Ketu and generally it is seen that people goes to that unknown area, where planet Rahu is placed as per the house it represents and when one gets depressed or frustrated, the individual takes the help of the spiritual planet Ketu. So, for some days, the individual lives with planet Ketu and its significance and then again jumps to the area where Rahu is placed.

Hence a native will perform or do things or feel pride in possessions which is governed by planet Rahu. That’s the beauty of this innovative creative planet Rahu. A well-placed Rahu makes one’s mind scientific and innovative. Many big innovations in the world has happened due to planet Rahu. So, if Rahu is placed in the sign of Gemini or Virgo and is a friend to the ascendant, then the native can be a great innovator. One of the interesting features of the planet Rahu is that, if it is in relation to any planet, it increases or magnifies the effect of the planet, however, it also passes on its negative impacts to that planet and hence such a planet will be beneficial or may have some adverse effects during its major or sub-period.

It is also to be noted that if all planets are between the planet Rahu and Ketu, then Kal Sarpa Yoga is said to be formed. Also, according to some astrologers, if Rahu is positioned in the sixth house, then also Kal Sarpa Yoga is formed. There will be times when a particular type of combination will result in a raj yoga and if planet Rahu is said to be connected with this combination, the Raj Yoga will be bestowed by astrological planet Rahu. It is also to be analysed that astrological planet Rahu is the planet for suddenness and hence anywhere in a horoscope this planet is placed, this will give rise to suddenness in those parameters which are governed by that particular astrological house.

It is observed that the global population of entrepreneurs is growing rapidly. The more the job market is reducing its opportunities; the more it is giving way to small business. Small and Medium business opportunities is not going to slow down in the coming days and years. Each day, more and more people are pausing their monotonous traipse of working for someone and are moving towards doing something on their own. It has been rightly said that ‘it’s a career that’s growing in popularity’.

Research 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 of passion. So, does astrology support this theory?

Vedic Astrology can help in determining the type of small business/entrepreneurship/start-ups one could venture in for better results. It is often seen that astrological vedic horoscopes which has the strongest astrological planets instigate an individual to rush into those sectors with possible collaborations for a new business venture. Have you observed in your life, that you like a particular sectors/field of life and love to read about the same without getting bored? This generally happens when a specific astrological planet in your astrological horoscope has strength to pursue the segment.

A lot of humans in the world want to be a great publisher and have inner quality, but never pursued! After many years when they finally think of publishing, it is too late to start. Over the years and studying hundreds of vedic charts, I have understood that any form of small business or entrepreneurship will not provide you immediate results. It needs time and the span can be of two years or more. Many have tried persistently for over five years and have finally succeeded in getting a good client base. Hence, every good thing in the world needs time and persistent efforts.

Vedic astrology has the ability to provide suggestion in understanding the timing of the event, when you need to make that extra effort, backed by the celestial astrological planets to push your start-up to great success.

In vedic astrology, there are however different astrological houses for business, income, financial benefits from job, regular days of your office work etc, but if you have an exalted or strong planet, the same planet has the ability to provide you name and fame for your business, which will ultimately lead to profits. Many a times start-ups decision is taken based on other person’s success, which again brings great challenges. It is a result, where one should have tried a particular life-path for business, based upon the strong planet. In this article let us discuss about sectors, based on the strength of planets in general (this is a general view not considering any aspects on the astrological planets and not considering other divisional charts like D9 and D10).

In the event, you have a strong Sun in your vedic horoscope, it is observed that this planet provides you with excellent opportunity on leadership. Sun generally indicates government service, physics, insurance sector, mathematical domain, political science, astronomy, ayurveda, government, judge, magistrates, rulers, jewellers, financials, administrative jobs etc. Now, having a strong astrological planet Sun means business may be taken up on Knowledge or Education Sector, Alternate form of medicine sector, Insurance Sector, Gold and Copper Business, Research or Consultancy on Political Science, Social Sector, Spiritual Sector etc.

If you have a strong astrological planet Mercury, it is observed that this astrological planet will help you in great communication and will also make you interested about food that is prepared in fire. So, if a native has a strong astrological planet Mercury than chances are there that the native have special likings on doing entrepreneurship on Media, News, Restaurants, Food sector, publishing sector, telephone and application building sector for mobile phones etc.

If you have a strong astrological planet Jupiter, it is observed that this planet helps one to pursue business related to motivation, philosophy, studies, knowledge, expansion, finances etc. Now when one starts an entrepreneurship ventures on these things or sectors, it may do wonders. Strong Jupiter will bestow wisdom to go through the challenges and move on. It’s a great opportunity to make small business or large business in the education sector, banking sector, financial investments etc.

If you have a strong astrological planet Mars in your vedic horoscope, then it is observed that these people will have excess energy to move on and entrepreneurship opportunities may be tried for law and order, defence, sports, daily exercises etc. Many entrepreneurs are making application or hardware for exercises to keep one’s body fit. Not only that, astrological planet Mars will support one with medical business. There are many businesses in the world which are on healthcare and medical sciences and those people having a strong astrological planet Mars, do great in their efforts.

If you have a strong astrological planet Saturn, it is observed that these people will deal with things, which need hard work and are very disciplined. These people will like to do entrepreneurship in administration related business, social causes, steel and iron industry, mining sector, foods which are cold and deal with refrigeration etc. Some of these people will have great interests in pursing business in photography.

If you have a strong astrological planet Moon, you will be a great creator. The planet Moon helps in creativity, arts and crafts and connection with the masses. Do you like arts, crafts and paintings and have an inner wish to do the same on your own? Perhaps you may have an artist inside you which can come out, if you pursue your inner talent. People having a strong moon do make applications on their mobile phones related to water, social causes as moon supports emotions and moon can help in sectors of psychology too.

Astrological Planet Venus is related to beauty and high-end products. If you have a strong astrological planet Venus in your horoscope, this astrological planet will help in doing entrepreneurship on vehicles, perfumes, fragrances, dress, fashion designing etc. Personally, I have observed that if you have a well-placed Venus, an individual can also get success in entrepreneurship on jewellery and gift business.

If you have a well-positioned astrological planet Rahu, then you are a great innovator. You love to do entrepreneurship on innovations and things related to fantasy world, writings, fictions, make applications which will involve masses etc. This planet is a great astrological planet, which supports new experiments, ideas and hence entrepreneurs with a well-positioned Rahu will do great in small business for generating ideas. Silver Screen and photography are another two options, which can give great dividends to budding entrepreneurs.

If you have a well-positioned astrological planet Ketu, then you are spiritual person and entrepreneurship on spiritual and ancient knowledge will be a great opportunity for you.

Having said this, I feel that everyone of us can be a great business man and entrepreneur, if only we have the vision to see. Once we can understand the sector in which we are good at, we can explore opportunities. It was said that the world is full of opportunities and if we have the courage to pursue our dreams and constantly motivate ourselves, everything is possible.

The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers or others. 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 all these years.

This article is based on an astrological review or analysis of the English movie ‘Coco’ based on the release, time and date at United States of America. As per some of the Internet information, the movie seemed to be released on November 22, 2017 at United States and lets analysis what astrological planetary conditions supported the movie and its pre-releases.

As per Vedic Astrology, there are some moments which are very beneficial for starting a new project and if the timings and themes support each other, the project is supposed to get flourished and cross continents.

It was on November, 22, 2017, Saturn was at Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (as per vedic astrology) in Moola Nakshatra which is ruled by the Planet Ketu at 2 degree 45 minutes. The Astrological planet Moon was at Purva Asadha Nakshatra ruled by planet Venus at 22 degree 37 minutes. The Astrological planet Ketu was in the second house. Mars the planet of energy & engineering and being the 5th lord in the day’s zodiac was moving through virgo zodiac, giving the house ruled by Mercury a boost.

As per the morning hours, the day when this movie was released have astrological planet Ketu in the second house in Dhanistha Nakshtra, ruled by Mars in Capricorn which again strengthens Ketu, which acts like Mars, signifying the fact that the entire box office expectations of the movie will be due to its great creativity (since Mars ruled creativity during the launch time).

Interesting fact is the star support towards the income from the movie and due to creativity, planet Ketu in Dhansista Nakshatra gives a push in this brilliancy in creativity and adds luminous attributes which makes it so special throughout to take them to a highest mount of affluence and respect.

Saturn and Moon in the first house of Jupiter supports the idea of ghosts and things related to that. Planet Saturn in the first house comes closer to the astrological planet Moon, which puts a dark aspect on the Moon and that leads to hallucinations and wondering about the other world. Since the ascendant is about self, so the release date supports this innovative concept.

The movie has a tremendous creativity by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina and the story followed a 12-year-old boy named Miguel Rivera who is accidentally transported to the land of the dead, where he seeks the help of his deceased musician great-great-grandfather to return him to his family among the living. As said this movie is based on the Mexican holiday of the Day of the Dead.

Though the timing of the release of the movie was great in terms of creativity and animation but income wise it will get more profits in some countries and less profit in others. This movie is supposed to get more profits in the European countries which is supported by Venus but will require a lot of promotion for marketing itself in the Asian and South Asian Countries. The reason is the position of Saturn in the ascendant.

The above write up is a general prediction 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.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 24: Inner Motivation and Dreams – 3rd House from Ascendant: A Vedic Astrology Analysis


Every one of us has a dream and we live each day, thinking as to when we will accomplish those visions of ours. Some dream to make a better world for us as well as for our future generations and others dream to make their living better. Dreams are the inner desire, which provides us hopes even in the worst and challenging times. The world throws up so many challenges at times that many of us crumble down. It’s true that when we are crushed down, we seek support from almost anything, with whom we attach and yet when no doors open, we seek the help of almighty which created us. No matter, we believe or not, we know that when there is a creation, there must be a creator and we start seeking divine help. Heavenly help does not mean that some extra-terrestrial happenings happen with us, it only means that we seek divinity in us, to gather courage and to push us through the challenges in order to come out in flying colors. That’s a great story to be told and if the tale is larger than oneself, it becomes a legend.

Dreams are all about finding the true meaning of one’s existence and about doing things for which one is born. It’s all about doing the stuffs, which one likes and pursuing the same irrespective of countless challenges. If you have a noble goal to achieve no matter how small it is; it will surely take off. Staying motivated is a challenge and if you can take on the trials & tribulations, you can sail sees, ride over the clouds and create an empire of your own.

For last ten years and more, I am studying books, articles, newsletters on vedic astrology and have read so many books from India and abroad that today I am confidently seeing vedic horoscopes of people. It was not an easy journey for me but after seeing innumerable horoscopes, I have come to the conclusion that this art which I read and accumulated over the years, out of my own passion has so much to deal with, that I am fascinated by the subject each day.  One Vedic chart giving rise to so many divisional charts is a fascinating thing to read and analyze.

Professionally, though my job is on disaster management and I have worked for fourteen years on the same, I found that I have an inner talent to predict and motivate. Hence the name of the website where I write is ‘Motivational Astrology’. If you find time, you may have a look at the website and read articles at:

For motivation in astrology, I give special importance to the 3rd house from the ascendant, as it’s the house, which according to me provides inspiration. 

The 3rd house from the ascendant in vedic astrology is all about staying motivated and when your desire and conviction join hands with your ‘free will’, things starts happening in this world. 

So, never stop dreaming and strengthen your 3rd house to stay motivated. Let’s analyze and discuss here as what happens when different planet rules one’s 3rd house from Ascendant in Vedic Astrology.

1. Sun:  The planet Sun is a royal star, so things of royal happenings or matters related to Government will be a source for inspiration for Gemini Ascendant. These people will be happy to be with powerful individuals in the society and will love to hear them.

2. Jupiter:  There are two zodiacs, which are ruled by Jupiter and each have their own importance. Sagittarius and Pisces zodiacs both are ruled by Jupiter but are different in nature. I am not going in details about the different Nakshatras that rules this zodiacs but Pisces as 3rd sign from Capricorn Ascendant will generally make the native, fond of romantic music and get inspired from any problems. Whereas the Sagittarius, being the 3rd house from the ascendant Libra may like to be on the move and stories of great valour, pictures of the same, Inspirational talks and fast music may take them to another level.

3. Moon:  The moon is a soft sign and Cancer being the 3rdhouse from the Taurus Ascendant is going to be inspired from politics and political speeches. So, these people will like to get closer to top politicians or be the politicians. Very Impressive arts, songs and speeches etc. are going to be their inspiration.

4. Mars:  The planet Mars rules the sign Aries and Scorpio. Aries as the 3rd house from ascendant Aquarius can instigate the native to face the world with full force; no matter how big the challenges may come. So, these natives are fond of hearing speeches from evolved souls, autobiography of people who have successfully climbed great heights in life, inspite of humongous challenges and get motivated from their tales. Whereas the zodiac Scorpio tries to go deep into the subject, so anything which helps to go profound into the subject will be a source of inspiration. If Ascendant Virgo native’s 3rd house falls in Scorpio, those people look upon the above facts for inspiration.

5. Mercury:  This planet rules two zodiacs viz. Gemini and Virgo. So, if Aries ascendant people whose 3rd house from the ascendant falls in Gemini, the person gets inspired through stories and facts from real life. They love to read and gain knowledge to gather strength for further communication. Cancer Ascendant people have their 3rd house as Virgo Zodiac, loves to hear from learned people and gather strength. The more one communicates with selected people and can connect with facts, helps them to get inspired. They also love to read facts from books, websites, speeches etc and carry on with their life.

6. Venus:  This planet rules two zodiacs, one is the Libra and the other is Taurus. For Pisces Ascendant, the 3rd house falls in Taurus zodiac and gets motivated by the pleasures of life – a beautiful home, a secure environment, soft music and songs, which help them to regain their strength. For Leo ascendant people the 3rd house falls in the Libra zodiac, who tempts them to get inspired from the beautiful things in the world, higher end products and pleasures in life. 

7. Saturn: This planet rules two zodiac signs, one is the Aquarius and the other is the Capricorn sign. Zodiac Capricorn falls as the third house from the Scorpio ascendant, the native will get inspired from doing things which serves the society at large and also will have inner ambition for power. So, these people like to read and know about powerful people in the world and may have an inner ambition to become like them. Safety and Security means a lot to them and they tend to make their environment secure. They love hearing people who have already reached heights and have made a mark in the society. Aquarius being the 3rd sign from Sagittarius ascendant, these people loves revolution and gets inspired from those people who have broken all rules, all challenges to push themselves and become legends. They will love to read about those who have succeeded amongst troubles and have ambition of becoming one.

This article is in continuation of my previous write-up on general predictions of marriage, based on Vedic astrological analysis. In this document, let’s discuss and analysis more on this subject. In my last article we have discussed about 7th house from Ascendant for the signs Aries, Taurus, Gemini and Cancer. Continuing my personal analysis let’s examine the traits of a spouse if ones 7th house falls in the sign of Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.  

Leo: If your 7th house falls in this zodiac, then your life partner will likely to take up a Government Job or an assignment which may be related to Government, Inter-Governmental Agencies, Public Sector Undertakings etc. Your spouse will be very impressive to look and will be hard working. One of the major problems with the native’s spouse will be the fact that he/she may be dominating in nature. Some domestic problems may arise due to this trait but generally it is observed that the spouse will be generous.

Virgo: If your 7th house falls in this zodiac, then your spouse will intelligent and may communicate a lot. However, whether the communication will be for good or bad depends on the position of other astrological planets. But at any point of time, if the native needs innovative ideas, life -partner will come to aid. However, if the native has Mars affliction, these may create problems. Generally, it is observed that the spouse will be soft spoken and kind hearted. However, problems may arise, if the lord of the 7th house, in this case Mercury is situated in the 3rd, 6th or 12th house from ascendant along with non –benefic planet. This combination may signify problems due to misunderstood communications.

Libra: If the 7th house falls in this zodiac, then the native’s spouse will be beautiful and will be kind hearted. The native’s life-partner will love all the beautiful things in the world and he/she will be extremely gorgeous.  If Sun is placed in this sign, it will make the spouse dominating but will help the native in gaining profit from Government dealings.  Mars placed in this sign will make the native’s spouse aggressive. Saturn exalted in this sign will definitely lead to a good matrimonial relationship. The position of Venus is also important since its placement do tell a lot of story, regarding ones matrimonial alliance and business. A well placed Venus will help in gaining wealth through business and will attract good finances.

Scorpio: If your 7th house falls in this zodiac, then the native will have an aggressive spouse and will be short tempered.  The native have to be very careful while communicating, otherwise it will lead to lot of problems in matrimonial alliances and life would be difficult. However, if Mars is well placed and is situated with benefic planets, it will lead to a happy married life. If Mars aspect Venus, the native may marry the individual of his/her likings.

Sagittarius: If your 7th house falls in this zodiac, then the native’s spouse will be very courageous and spiritual and will act like an advisor to the native. Generally it is observed that the spouse will be kind hearted and loving. The spouse will be very talented and will be also compromising. Jupiter if well placed will lead to a very happy married life. If Jupiter is connected to Moon, this will be a great combination for a peaceful and prosperous married life.

Capricorn: If your 7th house falls in this zodiac, then the native will be generally unreliable due to mood fluctuations. The spouse of the native will be greedy and ambitious and native will tend to marry late in life. The spouse will not be in a position to be very social and will attract life which will avoid more company.  It is also observed that the native may marry late in life. However, in troubling times, the spouse will look up to the native for guidance. The spouse of the native may come from ordinary family.

Aquarius: If your 7th house falls in this zodiac, then the spouse will be spiritual and will be kind hearted towards the native. The spouse will be learned and will have high ambitions. The spouse will love to study and will be a very good student academically.  Generally, it is observed that the spouse may involve with many community groups and spiritual organizations. Saturn well placed in the native’s chart will bless with a happy married life. However, there are chances that the native may marry an individual, who may be older in age than the native.

Pisces: If your 7th house falls in this zodiac, then the spouse will be kind hearted, but the native will be happier, if the spouse takes guidance and suggestions from him/her. Since Pisces is a watery sign, the spouse will be compassionate and may belong from a foreign land. A well placed Jupiter blesses the native with a happy married life.

Astrology Article 7: Mangal Dosh (Mangalik Dosha) – A Vedic Analysis

Mangal dosh or Bhaumya dosh is formed in one’s chart when the astrological planet Mars sits in one’s Ascendant (first house), fourth house, eighth house or the twelfth house of a Vedic chart. Some astrologers also see Mangal Dosha from the sign/House Moon is placed. So, as per them if planet Mars sits in first house, fourth house, eighth house or the twelfth house from the Moon in ones horoscope then also an individual will have Mangal Dosh.
It is said that if this planetary position is powerful in one’s horoscope, then it brings strains in matrimonial relationships, have difficulty in marriage and may lead to demise of one’s life partner. These planetary placements of Lord Mars also resist a native to find a life partner for oneself. While this conditions or situations seem scary but is Mangal dosh that bad, lets analysis.
Personally I feel Mangal dosh has its own merits and demerits and an individual acts based on one’s planetary combination. As per my personal analysis, if the native have Mangal Dosh, then the individual will have high level of energy and if the other person does not match that energy plane, it’s the beginning of a problem. Mangal Dosh makes a person short tempered, however it is the horoscope of those who are great fighters and have emerged successful in life after winning many battles of life. These are humans who are unstoppable and after many failures emerge out in flying colours.
Mangal Dosh in a horoscope reduces, if Mars is placed with a planet which is benefic e.g Planet Jupiter and placed in the Kendra houses. Also if the Ascendant of the native is Cancer, Leo, Aries or Sagittarius then Mars becomes a Yoga Karaka planet and hence the effect of Mangal Dosh reduces. As per some astrologers after the age of 28, Mangal Dosh reduces. Mangal Dosh also hampers rise in professional career.
In some cases Mangal Dosh is reduced significantly i.e if the horoscope of the boy and girl has the same dosha, then after marriage the negative impacts of Mangal dosh gets reduced. Also if benefic planets as per the ascendant is placed in all kendras i.e 1st house, 4th house, 7th house and 10th house then Mangal dosh is significantly reduced. It is also said that if Mars is placed in its own House, it generally does not cause any adverse effects. Also Jupiter aspect Mars reduces Mangal dosha to a large extent.
Let’s now discuss about the planet Mars and what it signifies. Mars is a fiery planet and is the lord of war. Mars is the karaka for one’s physical and mental strength, things which are produced out of the earth, immovable property, one’s younger brother & sister and one’s courage. It also signifies soldier, bone marrow and energy. Hence it rules these aspects in life i.e enthusiasm, generosity, boldness, self-confidence, organizing ability, leadership etc.
Now let’s discuss at these positive facts keeping aside the negative impacts:
Mars in the first house i.e ascendant helps one to take care of one’s health and is generally health conscious. The native tries to be independent, moody and is physically powerful. Mars in the fourth house helps a native to have a good career out of many challenges. Mars in the eighth house makes one violent if not placed with benefic planet but also may make one an internal motivator. Mars in the twelfth house if placed in a good position will raise his younger sister or brother in a powerful position.
Generally if Mars is not placed in its friendly sign, problems arise in the bhav or house its placed and the things the particular house signifies. So, what can be the remedies for reducing the Mangal Dosha? The remedy depends based on horoscope analysis but generally the effects of Mangal Dosha are reduced when one prays to ones spiritual Guru or to Lord Shiva.
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.
