HOW TO JUDGE PROFESSIONAL AFFAIRS THROUGH ASTROLOGY/PLANETARY INFOUENCES
MANAGE BUSINESS LOSSES/SETBACKS THROUGH ASTRAL REMEDIES
Predicting profession, a person is likely to take up and succeed, is quite a complex job and it is one of the most sought after fields in predictive Vedic Astrology. Numerous areas and highly competitive environment; be it business, service, profession, politics, etc., and its magnitude are the areas which have charged the atmosphere making it quite difficult for the decision makers to identify one which would be most suitable from the point of view of success and also the potentialities of the seekers.
There are number of factors which help us in arriving at a decision on this vital issue, viz. the nature of sign falling in the ascendant, tenth house governing profession, second house ruling the status, the impact of the third house which rules enterprising nature, the eleventh house signifying income and the ascendant of dasamsa (the divisional chart for analysis of professional matters) of a native. All of the foregoing factors collectively govern the magnitude of the professional matters. The sign of a royal planet like the Sun, the Moon or affluent planets Venus, Jupiter, Mars, etc. indicate the level of affluence of the profession of a native and the income, there from.
The lords of the second, third and ninth houses, if containing mooltrikona signs, also act as the Sun. The strength of the lords of these signs and the operating planetary periods hold the key to decipher the planetary influences. Similarly, understanding the nature of planets becoming significators for profession and the planets exerting close influence on the houses ruling professional matters is necessary.
The lords of the tenth and the second houses, if containing mooltrikona signs, are considered as the primary determinants for analysing the professional affairs. In case there is no mooltrikona sign in any of these houses, then the lord of the first house is considered the prime determinant. The planets closely influencing the tenth and the second houses or the ascendant, if there is no mooltrikona in the tenth and the second houses, or closely influencing their lords by way of close aspects/conjunctions as well as the planets placed in these houses act as secondary determinants for analysing the professional affairs. The lord of the ascendant of dasamsa containing a mooltrikona sign becomes an additional primary determinant for profession. The close influence of the lord of the third house on the houses ruling professional matters or the third house, itself, indicates business ventures.
The significations of planets fructify during their own main/sub-period as per their strength. The readers may please note the stress being laid on the strength of the planets. The weakness of the planets in a nativity is the very reason of existence of this divine science. It is but natural that a native may approach an astrologer in the hour of difficulty and thereafter he may like to utilize the services of this divine science without being faced with the problems but to avoid the incidence of problems as also to augment his ventures for optimum benefits. The real job is to find out the true strength of those planets which are apparently strong in the rasi chart of a nativity. As per Maharishi Parashara the weak planets of the natal chart do not acquire any strength in any of the Vargas. The weak natal planets fail to bestow good results even if they are in strength in the divisional charts or having maximum benefic bindus in Ashtakvarga.
In fact delineating anything from a natal chart requires application of the principles in a comprehensive manner. Most of the times, the significators may be overlapping and indicating more than one area of pursuit, while a person might have one of the area as a hobby. Similarly, a planet signifies variety of occupations. For example (1) the Sun signifies administration, practice of medicine, politics, etc. (2) Venus signifies practice of life saving drugs, the business of artistic nature, engineering or luxury items, financial advisor's role, etc. (3) Mercury signifies dealing in writing, accountancy, analytical studies, application of law, designing work of engineering involving calculations, etc. (4) The Moon signifies love and care, house keeping, public relations, etc. (5) Mars signifies execution, commandership in the armed forces, initiative and entrepreneurship, etc. (6) Jupiter signifies practice of law, teaching, financial management, advisory roles, propagation of spirituality, Astrology, etc. (7) Saturn signifies participation in mass production involving large work force, low technology industry, leadership of labor/industrial workers, service, etc.
What we have to see is which type of influence is more in operation and has to synchronize the same with the operating planetary periods. As a group, those planets which exert more influence indicate the choice or area of profession. The prominence, fame, wealth or notable contributions in various fields is the result of a group of strong planets congruent in nature. The group of Venus, Jupiter and Mercury may indicate the area of profession as advisory role in financial institutions or in financial matters, legal advice, or collectively legal and financial areas. The confluence of the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, etc. as a group may indicate good positions in administration. The confluence of Venus, Saturn, Mercury and Mars may indicate a profession of engineering. The confluence of Mercury, Mars, Venus and the Sun may indicate a profession in the technology sectors. Further classification in the major field depends on the leading role of one of the significators. When the significators are weak or the main period of weak planets is in operation, the natives go in for routine jobs i.e. clerical or mechanics, sales representatives/assistants, etc. or merely work as helping hands. For entering into business the role of the third house and the Sun, Venus and Mercury is supreme as they provide planning, trading and organizing capabilities. Royal planets (the Sun and the Moon) and Mars, the planet of executive authority, under the benefic influence of Jupiter becoming significators of profession indicate involvement of political career. Rahu gives impetus to the efforts. However, success depends on the good placement of Rahu and neither it should be aspected by or related to the functional malefic planets nor it should be closely afflicting other planets in the natal chart. Ketu in its main/sub-periods often retards the growth. Persons with weak Mercury, which rules planning and analytical faculties, often end up with losses in business because of mainly two reasons i.e. (1) they depend on the wisdom of others; and (2) they take wrong decisions when they are under great mental pressures.
For detailed study of this aspect, the readers may refer to Chapter 15 of our book, “Predictive Techniques and the Application of Astrological Remedial Measures” and study our book, "How to Avert Professional Setbacks."
By way of a few charts, we will further see the confluence of various groups of planets.

The Moon is strong in the chart and closely influences the most effective point of the tenth house. Both Jupiter and Venus are strong but they are not close to the most effective point of the houses. The Sun is afflicted by Rahu-Ketu axis. The ascendant of the dasamsa is Sagittarius and the planets Mercury and the Moon are in their signs of debilitation.

The education of the native was completed in the main period of Venus. As the planets Mars, Saturn and the Moon become significators for the professional pursuits, the native, due to the weakness of the planets involved, went in for a diploma course in engineering. The nodal affliction to the Sun either keeps the person away from governmental jobs or lands the person in trouble in the government job and the person is compelled to leave the job. The weak planets did not allow the native to use his entrepreneurial skills and he joined his brother's industry. The strong Jupiter and Venus, however, helped him in getting good gains due to the prosperity of his brother's industry.
