Life is a continuous learning process where the role of every planet is to teach us a new lesson in our life that is why I always tell people to be observant and keep looking around as you don’t even know how planets will appear in front of you to teach you a lesson of life.
When you are running a certain dasa/antardasa sequence you are bound to come in contact with people who are going to shape your thoughts, and habits and teach you how to evolve yourself in this life, As these learnings are already inside you it is only the conditions given by planet which evoke these feelings so you can carry your journey ahead.
Let me give you an example – If you are running the dasa sequence of Saturn in Jupiter sign so you can imagine someone with a lot of experience and wisdom will come and will discipline you in your life as the work of this Saturn is to give you a lot of knowledge and it will give in a Saturine manner, You might not like the harshness of Saturn but this is to polish you to become gold (Jupiter). A goldsmith picks up a heavy iron hammer to remove impurities of gold on the surface.
You are always at the right place and right time, all you need to do is look closely as humans we are so busy with useless tasks that we forgot the bigger picture of life, Look around you, Where are you at present? People around you, the house you are living in and you will realise this was clearly written in your chart, even the names of the people who are there in your life.
Let us look at one of the troubled souls who emailed me and see how her destiny is going to unfold.
She is Running Rahu Mahadasa- Agenda of Rahu in the chart is to give challenges and make her face every possible condition in future and the brilliance of Rahu is that problems always come as a surprise, things which you have not even expected and being the Mahadasa lord, Rahu expects and forces all the antardasa lords to work in such manner only. Surprise is the element of Rahu in the chart.
Rahu- Jupiter- This dasa is troublesome for most people as Jupiter being the slow planet believes in you reap what you sow, least amount of surprises in the dasa of Jupiter but being the antardasa lord now Jupiter has to come in accordance with Rahu, So Jupiter will bring surprise elements in her life in the areas govern by Jupiter for this use Mahadasa lord Rahu as lagna.
Making Rahu as Lagna you will find Jupiter governs the 5th and 8th house and is placed in the 6th house to Rahu and that too in depression showing this antar will make her fall from the position due to issues of 5th and 8th house -resulting into dieases.
What she wrote- “ After that i joined for masters in marine microbiology,but dropped after first semester,even though i was topper in first semester. I struggle with hearing loss, serious mental health issues and chronic constipation ,that is why i dropped off suddenly. After that i was hopeless, feeling lost. Got interest into tarot, psychic, astrology”
5th house of the stomach, Depression, 8th house of chronic troubles, Jupiter being the significator of the ear all these troubles cropped up suddenly.
The next dasa that came up was of Saturn which is placed in 8th to Rahu and owns the 6th and 7th house from Rahu- A planet placed in 8th to another planet showing again a major transformation happening and when the planet involved is Saturn retrograde which means something is related to the sudden death of someone.- This is the dasa when her father committed suicide.
These two dasas were enough to break any human being in life and this is what has happened with this soul now she is in antar of Mercury and her question was if I can go to a foreign land but what made me analyse her chart was I can sense the emotion and with which she was asking the question as she wrote ” I want to pursue PhD in psychology from the US. Preparing for it. Don’t know if I will succeed.”
See She doesn’t have confidence in her as after going through two dreadful antars she doesn’t know if she can clear something – Mercury is placed 2nd to Rahu with the Dispositor of Rahu and exalted- Secondly, Dasa of Mercury has to be an important one as whenever dasa of a planet runs which has a connection to the ascendant in chart something very important related to the house where lagan lord is sitting happens in a life of a native.
Mercury is an ascendant lord and placed in the 4th house she is definitely going to a foreign land and you can clearly see in the navansh chart why I am so confident.
Another question she asked was if she has chosen the right subject.
Let us analyse D-1 for a career- 10th lord in 8th house showing profession will be related to research and it cannot be normal 9-5 Job, 8th and 10th exchange remember what we learned about exchange -when 8th and 10th exchange this means while you are making your career someone within the family will die as in her case 9th lord Saturn was a father who committed suicide.
There is also involvement of Moon in 8th with 10th lord- showing studies related to underwater (8th) Jeev(Jupiter) and their survival (Saturn)
Yes, she is bound to choose this career also one snapshot is Saturn on 23rd Degree gives a profession related to biotechnology, auditing or lawyers.
