Astrology and Life (How to Achieve What You Want)

Astrology and Your Life

Steve Jobs said, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life”. What a powerful saying!

The birth of any human is not meant to highlight fate.  The fate is the result of one’s past deeds - both good and evil.  Human birth actually emphasizes man’s will to escape from the birth-death cycle.  What he has done (karma), he can undo it.  He is the cause of his happiness/sorrows prevalent in his life.  He can overcome any limitation since he himself is the creator- all done by his own actions in the past.

The supreme truth is that in man, abides a spiritual resource which are not subject to any planetary influence, which is generally unknown to man.

Everyone in this Universe is unique. They have different needs, thoughts and different ways of life.
You need to perform two types of actions to accomplish anything in the world (wealth, health, success, career, goal, aim, mission etc.). One is visible action and another is invisible action. For example, for a person aiming for success in exams, his visible action is the effort that goes into his studies and invisible action is his connection with The Supreme or in other words God’s blessings (derived through prayers, meditation, religious activities, remedies for previous karma etc.).

Examples for better understanding of above: -

Visible Actions
Invisible Actions
Success in Business
·         Choose right business
·         Hard and smart work
·         Tap right opportunity
·         Work with good intention, attitude and enthusiasm
·         All types of work that promote business except cheating, bad intention, depriving people etc.
·         And so on…..
·         Meditation
·         Prayer
·         Perform Remedies, if needed after thorough consultation with an Astrologer
·         Auspicious time, wherever applicable
·         Reciting Vedas
·         Puja/Homam(Havan)
·         Visit temples
·         Tantric and Other Religious Rituals
·         Gems, Stones, Yantra, if needed
·         Helping others
·         Offerings
·         Charity/Social work
·         Positive Belief

These invisible actions will result in Divine blessing which will result in long lasting happiness and success by virtue of objectives being achieved.
Education/Success in Exams
·         Choose line of education which is suitable/right
·         Plan study method
·         Learning & Development
·         Project Work
·         Guidance & Training
·         And so on…
Wealth/Financial Gains
·         Wealth Planning
·         Prudent investment
·         Deposits/Shares
·         Property
·         Income from different business activities
·         Commission
·         Income from ancestral properties, friends, relatives, others
Curing Diseases / Health Gain
·         Proper Diagnosis
·         Medicines
·         Therapeutics
·         Adequate Rest
·         Adequate intake of healthy food/supplements
·         Go Vegetarian

Gem Stones (Stones for pacifying planets)

One can wear the gemstones of favorable planets to get the blessings of those planets and tide over troubles. Look at the functional benefics in one’s rasi chart and prescribe their gemstones. If a planet’s dasa is running or if a planet is taking part in a favorable yoga, we may choose that planet. Wearing the gemstone of a planet speeds up the fructification of the good results promised in a chart by that planet.

If one wants good results in a particular area of life, we may strengthen favorable planets in the relevant divisional chart. For example, suppose someone wants improvement in career. We can prescribe the gemstone of a yogakaraka in D-10 then. If a functional benefic is badly placed or weak, its gemstone can still be used.

For example, if one has lagna in Capricorn, Venus is a yogakaraka. Suppose Venus is in the 8th house (Leo). Then he may not give good results in his dasa despite being a yogakaraka. In such a case, wearing diamond (gemstone of Venus) makes Venus powerful enough to give good results. On the other hand, gemstones of functional malefics in a chart should be avoided as far as possible. In addition, the gemstones of marakas should be avoided when one is running maraka dasas. A list of the gemstones and metals of various planets are given below. A ring made of the suggested metal with the suggested gemstone can be used for strengthening the planet.

The ring must be worn for the first time on the weekday of the planet. The planetary strength should be good at that time. The planet ruling the gemstone should be strong at that time. 

We can combine two gemstones and wear them, if the corresponding planets are friends and functional benefics. This is particularly recommended when the two planets form a yoga. Suppose someone has lagna in Virgo. If 10th lord Mercury and 9th lord Venus are together, they form dharma-karmadhipati yoga. A ring consisting of emerald and diamond may be advised.  Similarly, if Sun and Moon conjoin in the chart of a person with Aries lagna, they form a raja yoga and a ring with ruby and pearl may be recommended.

Traditionally, astrologers assign the index finger to Jupiter, middle finger to Saturn, ring finger to Sun and little finger to Mercury. Traditionally, gemstones of Mercury and Venus are worn on the little finger; gemstone of Saturn is worn on the middle finger and so on. However, some astrologers suggest that the ring finger, middle finger, little finger and index finger show the four purushaarthas – dharma, artha, kama and moksha (respectively). They suggest wearing a ring on the finger representing the purushaartha of interest. One desiring marriage may wear the ring of his 7th lord on the little finger. One desiring good results in career may wear the ring of a yogakaraka in his D-10 on the middle finger and so on.  Index finger represents moksha and it is usually left ring less.

However, it is always advised to consult a learned Astrologer before selecting and wearing a Gem.
