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.

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. 

When the North Node of the Moon, planet Rahu transits to 3rd pada of Purnavasu from 26 degree 40 seconds to 30 degree is likely to increase in business for the following sectors:

  1. Food Sector
  2. Restaurant Sector
  3. Publishing Sector
  4. Tourism and Travelling Sector
  5. Dental and Dermatologist equipment’s and business related to these sectors
  6. Movies which deals with fantasy world and animated movies sector
  7. Aviation sector is also likely to get a boost during this time.
  8. Marketing and Advertising Business
  9. Talk Show related sectors
  10. Writers and journalists are likely to see boost in their career
  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.

  1. Retail banking
  2. Photography Sector
  3. Interior Designing
  4. Art Performers
  5. Chefs in Hotels is likely to increase their income and customers
  6. Fragrance Sector
  7. Automobile Sector

However, different types of events are likely to happen when the North Node of the Moon transits to first pada of Punarvasu i.e from 20 degree to 23 degree and 20 seconds. When planet Rahu transits to the first pada of the nakshatra, there will be turbulence and ups and downs in the following sectors:

  1. Petrochemical Sector
  2. Pharmaceutical Sector
  3. Chemical Sector
  4. Medical Equipment’s
  5. Defense Equipment’s Trade
  6. Sports Sector
  7. Private Hospitals is likely to see increase in Revenue

However from November, 2019, again there is a change, in which different sectors of business is likely to get a boost. But, in general, the following sectors are likely to see gains:

  1. Food and Restaurant Business
  2. Publishing Houses
  3. To some extent Aviation Sector

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. Astrological Planet Ketu entering this sign is likely to lead to the following events for few months:

  1. Analysis of new thoughts and constructive criticism of the Rulers of the land
  2. New Talents coming up to show case their products
  3. Philosophical writings get a boost.
  4. Opposition Political Parties forms new alliances, based on constructive thinking.

As days pass, I will write new articles based on this transit and if you like reading this article; I look forward to your comments. The entire analysis and prediction is based on Vedic Astrology and based on the transit of the North and South Node of the Moon. This is a general prediction and individual business and entrepreneurship opportunities will entirely depend on one’s personal horoscope.

“It’s the rough side of the mountain that’s the easiest to climb; the smooth side doesn’t have anything for you to hang on to.” – Aretha Franklin, American Singer and Pianist

Dear Readers,

It feels great to write to you once again as your favourite motivational and inspirational astrologer.

Very soon, we have major changes upcoming in the cosmic skies and let this energy keep you awake a little bit more, shake you up a bit more, make you work harder a little more as you move with triumph to realize your dreams in the physical plane.

Many a times, you may have an idea and you are on it in the evening and never worked out. You feel strange and the next day some negative energies comes as a blockage and you leave the idea. Personally, I feel the world needs ideas and it’s these ideas which helps the globe move. Entrepreneurship is one of the best ways to showcase your ideas to the world and if you succeed, you have already proven your ideas in this planet. It feels wonderful as I write to you & let this dream makes you join hands with your destiny to the world’s most emerging problems through small business and entrepreneurship.

Readers, the time has come to take that next level and implement your ideas on ground. When your actions are noble and are for higher good, know that these Cosmic Planets opens up and lady luck shines on you. As per Astrological Charts, everyone has 1st house i.e Ascendant, the Second House, the 5th house, the 7th house, the 10th house and the 11th house and hence we all can do business and while Jobs are a requirement, but we all have the ability to fight through life’s challenges to make our dreams come true.

It was Walt Disney, who once said that “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

Jupiter is a great planet for expansion and it deals with knowledge. Jupiter provides you the voice, the strength to move on. In my analysis, Jupiter rules knowledge, entrepreneurs, palaces, clothes (venus also rules the same), travel etc. So, when Jupiter enters the sign of Scorpio on 11th October, 2018 it will lead to opening of deepest secrets in the world. Now that also mean that whatever the sign from your ascendant, you will learn a lot about your deepest talents and the reason for your existence in the world. By that I mean, Jupiter will open up avenues related to your secret talents and will make you go deeper into the subject and see the world in a new way. This will help entrepreneurs in the globe to go deep into their subject and try once again with more vigour, equipped with deeper knowledge, better communication and creativity.

Life is beautiful and the cosmic energies are there to guide all of us showing us the reason, why we are born. Let this energy help us understand ourselves better, so that we can once again move ahead with deeper knowledge and move on. Planet Saturn has already become direct in the warrior sign Sagittarius and dude you can work hard, combined with Jupiter energy to become the greatest business human or entrepreneur.

Presently, Jupiter is in Vishakha Nakshatra and this is probably one of the nakshatras with two deities. Agni and Indra are the two deities of the vedas, which rules this nakshatra. Now, it’s clearly understood that both these elements are energy elements and deals with power. Indra is the kind of the devas that deals with thunder storms and sacrifices. The Scorpio part of this Nakshatra is about secret knowledge which people can use, a knowledge which can transform life into better. When Jupiter enters Scorpio, it adds up to one’s hunger for secret knowledge, which will help one to learn more and gather strength based on one’s knowledge for expansion.

When Jupiter energy join hands with your creativity and one’s appetite to learn more, it does wonder. The symbol of this Nakshatra is the potter’s wheel. The symbol of the Potter’s wheel shows the static inner part, which is encircled by the worldly illusions. The clay fashioned is related to life, which is shaped as per your thought and destiny. Vishakha nakshatra is also ruled by Jupiter and it is from 20-degree Libra to 3 degree 20 minutes into Scorpio. Incidentally, as soon as Jupiter enters Scorpio Zodiac sign Vishakha Nakshatra, it becomes exalted and powerful at the Nakshatra pada zero degree to 3 degree 20 minutes. So, let’s study more, think more, bring creativity and lets cosmic benevolent energy of Knowledge makes you a great entrepreneur through intellectual growth. Just want to mention that Astrological Planet Jupiter in Scorpio will also cover the Nakshatras Anuradha and Jyestha Nakshatras.

Finally, let me quote, Ms. Oprah Winfrey, who once said that “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your Dreams.”

If you like this astrological newsletter, a thumbs up will a great help for me to write more. A one liner comment will also show your great support.

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.

Lord Saturn is a Karmic Planet. In the history of humankind, lord Saturn is being prayed for years and have been worshipped due to fear, for getting strength or to clear ones Karma (deeds). Every person in this world are generating Karma each moment. For example, when any one thinks negative about any person, a Karma is generated. Some expostulate and often are enthralled to do negative things for others. However, it is said that The Evil you do Remains with You, The Good you Do comes Back To You. Lord Saturn is dreaded over centuries but if one studies in detail, then one analyses that Lord Saturn provides results as per ones past Karma (deeds) in this life or previous lives. The way it is done is unknown and very formidable to understand. Lord Saturn gives results very slowly and steadily. However, it depends on the type of house (from the Ascendant/Lagna) it is placed and the nakshatra it is moving.

Given below is a chart of Ms Indira Gandhi as received from websites and it seems that She is born in Ashlesha Nakshatra with Saturn placed in Cancer.

Vedic Astrology Chart of Ms Indira Gandhi:


Let’s judge here as to What Saturn did for her by placing himself in the first house of Lagna or Ascendant. Saturn is the lord of her 7th house and 8th house from the ascendant. Now let us analyse Ashlesha Nakshatra, which is ruled by Mercury and its Lord is the Nagas (Serpent). So, Saturn sitting here makes Ms Indira Gandhi intelligent and through courage She was able to tackle her opponents. Here Saturn also makes one to cling to ones loved ones and She was not willing to leave her close associates from moving from her. Since Saturn is sitting in pada 2, Saturn is in full power which led her to be a great Mass Leader and a great orator since Ashlesha is ruled by Lord Mercury; the planet of communication. However, placement of Saturn made her work a lot and that led her to sleep for only few hours. Saturn here has some aspect in the 4th house, which separated her from her mother in the childhood days and Saturn’s position was also the reason for her mother not keeping well. Saturn also has aspects on her second house which led to problems in her immediate family. Tenth aspect of Saturn on her work life made her world famous with tenth lord in second house. However, Ashlesha is a difficult nakshatra and every planet situated here goes under major transformation. Hence, though she was a mass leader and there was major transformation in her career, she broke Congress to create Congress (I). These is a general prediction based on placement of Saturn, which is shared for better analysis on the subject.

Coming back to our topic Retrograde movement of Saturn in Sagittarius, its going to increase opportunities for various sectors like Water, Agriculture, Tea, Coffee, Cold drinks etc. Here it is to be remembered that Saturn is moving backward in the celestial sky. In his milky way galaxy, it is observed that when Earth moves faster than any other planet, it seems that the planet is moving backwards and that is observed as retrograde motion. The retrograde motion of a planet is an optical illusion when Planet Earth passes slower moving planets further out in the orbit.

Purva Ashadha Nakshatra is a nakshatra which is 13 degree 20 minutes to 26 degree and 40 minutes in Sagitatarius and is ruled by Lord Venus. The deity of this Nakshatra is Apas, the God of Water. So, when Saturn the karmic planet moves in backward position in this Karmic sign where Purva meaning first and Ashadha meaning not subdued, it indicates that these people irrespective of any challenges will move on. So, Saturn opens opportunities for these people now. On the other hand, Saturn the Karmic planet will test ones Karma here and by that, I mean Saturn will test one’s patience with anger. No matter, how much one provokes a native, it is wise to keep calm during this Saturn retrograde movement.

Saturn’s retrograde will be good for Sagittarius moon sign natives (as per vedic astrology) as they can now explore possibilities and will be able to get back their inner strength, Capricorn moon sign natives may need to travel and work more hard during this time as they are in sade satti (7 and a half years of movement of Saturn over their natal moon). Aquarius Moon sign people will have to face some difficult situation, in which they may not be happy. Pisces Moon sign natives may have to work harder in offices, Aries Moon sign may have again some issues with father or father like figures or may take up some spiritual travels, Taurus moon sign people may face some challenges regarding ancestral property and may become busy with their health more, Gemini Moon sign people may have some issues with business partnership or may have some issues with ones spouse, Cancer moon sign people may face some struggles in their career, life and food. Leo Moon Sign people may focus more on their creativity and written abilities, Virgo Moon Sign people may feel like coming back to their own home or may become nostalgic. They may also have issues with one’s mother. Libra Moon sign natives may have some issues with their cousins, younger siblings or on joining any other bigger organizations, Scorpio Moon Sign people may have problems again on their income, job and family. These Moon Signs are based on Vedic Astrology and not by date of birth as per Western Astrology.

Lord Saturn is likely to be in progressive on September 06, 2018 at 17.02 hrs.

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.

Posted in Film & Movie Astrology



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.

Planet Saturn in Vedic astrology has been given more importance with reference to one’s karma. Astrological Planet Rahu and Ketu is also known as the Karmic Planet and Planet Saturn provides results based on one’s Karma (deeds). Planet Saturn is a dreaded slow moving planet and provides results based on its transits in different zodiac houses and nakshatras. Right now Planet Saturn is in Jyeshtha Nakshatra and will move to Moola Nakshatra ruled by planet Ketu on 26 October, 2017. This transit will affect different zodiac people as well as different nakshatra in various ways. Some may be benefitted and for others, this transit can throw challenging situations.

Planet Saturn plays a very important role in any person’s rise or fortune. As per the mythological story, Saturn is a planet which grants result as per one’s karma. So, whether one gets good effect or bad result depends on one karmic action performed earlier or in previous births. Saturn plays a vital role in one’s professional life. A well placed Saturn in one’s chart helps to rise high in life but with lots of struggle. A position attained through struggle is generally retained for long if the assignment awarded is due to lord Saturn.

As per the mythology, Saturn is the Son of Surya and Chaya. Saturn has a very strained relation with his father Surya or Lord Sun. That’s the reason, during the Sade-Satti Phase, the zodiac Leo ruled by Lord Sun suffers the most. Saturn represents the old people, disabled people and humans who are not benefitted in the society. Oil, Gas and Petroleum Sector is also ruled by Saturn. In the human body, Saturn rules the bones. So, if anyone has problems related to bones, it is generally due to the malefic effect of Saturn.

Saturn Dristi is the 3rd house, 7th house and 10th house. So, whenever Saturn looks into these houses, there is a problem related to those houses. Saturn in turn protects the house in which it is positioned.

Transit of Saturn into Sagittarius this 26 October, 2017 will be the starting of the seven years Sade Satti Phase for the Capricorn Moon Signs. This will also lead to peak time sade satti for Sagittarius Moon Signs and will be the last phase of the Scorpio Moon Signs. Additionally the Moon sign Zodiacs, who are going to be affected, are Gemini and Virgo. The Zodiac’s who will be relieved during this time from Dhaiya is Leo, Taurus and to some extent Aries. Options and Opportunities are going to open up for the Natal Moon Signs of Leo, Taurus and Aries. The moon signs of Aquarius will be towards a major period of opportunities and new beginnings.

Sade Satti happens when Saturn the karmic planet travels the natal Moon sign in the twelfth, first and the second house. Sade Satti is not bad, but it acts as life’s teacher. During the first phase, an individual tends to make mistakes which turns to be a learning lesson for the individual. The second phase disturbs ones health and the third phase leads to maximum travel in one’s life due to various reasons. However, there are cases, where it has been observed that Sade Satti have actually helped an individual lead a great life during its peak time phase. All this depends on the analysis of the total chart and the horoscope analysis done based on several parameters.

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.
