30 Oct

Jupiter Transit – 2019

It is again the time of the annual transit of Jupiter and the analysis of its results for 12 Rashis. Jupiter will transit from Scorpio to Sagittarius on 05 Nov 2019 and it will remain in Sagittarius for about a year, till 20 Nov 2020 to be precise.

In Vedic Astrology, Jupiter is regarded as the most auspicious planet among all the 9 planets, because of its abilities to bestow all that is good for a generous and respectful life. Jupiter is Guru or Teacher of Devatas and been conferred the title of “Devaguru”. He is the most auspicious and benefic planet. However, this does not imply or mean that He does not do any harm or damage. When Jupiter is malefic, it gives nothing but fear and tears. It ruins the reputation, destroys wealth and brings disaster in life.

Jupiter takes about 12 years to complete cycle of 12 zodiac signs. It stays for about a year in each sign.  Whenever Jupiter moves in to 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th houses from the Janma Rashi it gives good results. We can say that the native has Gurubala. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces where it embodies all the planet’s positive aspects, and is exalted in Cancer where it expands the nurturing and mothering principle. Jupiter is debilitated in Capricorn and gives least results when posited there.

Jupiter is the significator for wealth, children, education, religion, prosperity, fame, gain, good marital order, providential help, political power, good luck, finances and long journeys. As regards health, Jupiter rules: blood, liver, arteries, thighs, neck, weight problems, diabetes, cataract, intoxication, biliousness, cholesterol.

I have been requested to write about the art of transit interpretation as people are not satisfied with general results which are given for each Rashi. I might warn the readers that interpretation of transit results is not that easy and it is an intricate / complex process involving several factors. Therefore I am giving the methodology of the process of reading the results taking one sample case and the readers are advised to adopt / modify the same for their specific chart.

Workout the following to assess the goodness / evil nature and potency of Jupiter in your individual charts, by going through the following steps.

  1. Identify your Janma Rashi.
  2. There are 12 ascendants and therefore Jupiter will have Lordship of two of the houses out of the twelve.
  3. Out of the two lordships, both can be good / one bad & one good. Jupiter, wherever he is posited in dual houses will favour that house. For e.g. Jupiter for Leo Lagna will be 5th & 8th Lord and posited in Sagittarius will favour 5th house and accordingly give more results of 5th house.
  4. Then we have to see Jupiter’s placement in the chart, viz. placed in Own House / Friend’s House /Enemy House / Exalted / Debilitated / retrograde.
  5. Aspects and associations on / with Jupiter
  6. Yogas formed by Jupiter.
  7. Strength / Shadbala of Jupiter.
  8. Check if Jupiter has any Veda (Obstruction)
  9. Note down the Dasha / Bhukti running for you during the transit.

Overriding Clause

  1. Reference Point: The reference or starting point for Transit prediction is the Janma Rashi or the sign in which the Moon is posited in the natal chart. There are many astrologers who advocate interpretation with reference to Lagna or Ascendant but the classical texts recommend using Janma Rashi only.
  2. Dasha and Bhukti: Whatever interpretation we arrive at using above method must be supported by the Dasha and Bhukti currently running for the native. If the Dasha and Bhukti is not favourable then the results thus predicted may not come true.

Sample Case

                                                                Rashi Chart  


Transit Chart – 05 Nov 2019


  1. Lagna – Aquarius. Jupiter is Lord of 2nd & 11th Houses. Both good houses.
  2. Jupiter is in 11th House (In own house) and therefore will favour this house.
  3. Janma Rashi is Aries
  4. Shadbala of Jupiter is 101, least amongst all the planets.
  5. In present transit the native will have Jupiter in 9th house basically indicating acquisition of wealth. This also indicates improvement in health and cordial relationship with near and dear ones. This also indicates that good things will happen to his kith and kin and his children. Blessings from spiritual people and elders will be there. A long journey to pilgrimage is likely. Native will be spiritual and participate in religious activities
  6. Wealth from where, how and from whom and how much?
  7. Jupiter being 2nd Lord, it will be self-earned. Basically it will be from the Karakatwas of that house.
  8. Jupiter posited in 9th house also indicate that wealth can be from father and overseas.
  9. The quantum will not be much because Jupiter has no strength.
  10. Being 11th Lord also gives overall benefit in life.
  11. The result is also dependent on Saturn transit position which at the moment (9th from Natal Moon) is unfavourable.
  12. When Jupiter is in 9th house Veda point in 10th. No planet is posited there and hence there is no Veda. But when Saturn moves to Capricorn in Feb 2020, his benefic character will be further reduced.
  13. Native is running Jupiter Mahadasha and Saturn Antara till Apr 2021 whatever Transit results are arrived at is being supported by Dasha & Bhukti.
  14. We can reasonably conclude that Transit predictions will hold good.


People for whom Jupiter is in unfavourable position need not despair. Jupiter being the most benefic planet will normally not harm any native unless he is highly afflicted. As stated earlier Jupiter is the promoter par excellence, and we wish that all mankind receive his blessings for peace and harmony.

Propitiating Lord Shiva on Mondays and Thursdays and reciting following Mantras will mitigate difficulties.


Gayathri Mantra

Om Suraachaarya Vidmahe, Surasreshtaya dhimahi, tanno Guruh prachodayat”

Purana Mantra

Devanam cha Rishinam cha Gurum kañchana-sannibhham
buddhi-bhutam tri-lokesham tam namami Brihaspatim


                                                        Hari Om, Sarve Janaha Sukhino Bavanthu

Sapthamsha is an expanded view of the 5th house in a Rashi Chart. From this chart we can get information about the native’s happiness from his children, grandchildren as also the disappointments faced from them.

17 Mar


The classics while discussing Longevity have classified the life span as follows:

  1. Alpayu (0 to 33 years)
  • Balarista (0 to 12 years)
  • Madharista (12 to 20 years)
  • Yogarista (12 to 33 years)
  1. Madyayu (33 to 65 years)
  2. Poornayu (65 to 100 years)
  3. Amitayu (> 100 years) 

Balarista is a Sanskrit word comprising of “Bal” and “Arista”.  “Bal” refers to infancy and childhood, while the “Arishta” means evil or inauspicious.  In Vedic astrology, it implies specific planetary placement, which may cause death during infancy and/or childhood. The disposition of the Moon in horoscope is the primary factor in deciding the presence of “Balarista” or the vulnerability of the child to suffer seAvere health issues including death. The placement of the Moon in sixth, eighth or twelfth house and also having influence of malefic planets (Sun, Mars, Saturn, and Nodes) generates Balarista. 

Moon controls infancy. Therefore we have to check the strength of Moon at birth. The guideline for this as follows:

  • Moon is weakest on Amavasya.
  • Moon is strongest on Poornima.
  • Weak Moon (WM) is defined as between Krishna Paksha 6th Lunar day to Shukla Paksha 10th Lunar day
  • Strong Moon (SM) is defined as between Shukla Paksha 11th Lunar day to Krishna Paksha 5th Lunar day.

Combinations for Balarista

  1. WM + Malefics (More conjunction, less aspect) in Lagna, Marakasthana and Dusthana.
  2. WM in Lagna, Malefics in Kendras – less resistant to diseases.
  3. WM + Malefics in Kendras.
  4. WM in 12H, Lagna and 8H under Malefic influence, Kendra devoid of benefic influence.
  5. WM in 7H & Malefics in Maraka Houses 2H & 7H
  6. Malefic concentration of planets take place in:
  • Lagna & 8H
  • Lagna & 7H
  • 7H & 8H
  • Kendras & 8H
  1. Retro Benefics in Dusthanas + Malefic influence on Dusthanas.
  2. Benifics in Dusthanas + Retro Malefic influence on Dusthanas.
  3. Lagna + 7H under Malefic influence
  4. Lagna in Rashi Gandantha + Malefic influence on Lagna
  5. Moon in Mrithyu Bhava + Malefic influence on Dusthana – danger for both mother and child.
  6. Lagna Lord in 7H with Malefics under Graha Yuddha and Lagna Lord gets defeated.
  7. Rahu in Lagna + Benefics in Visible Half (12H – 7H) + Malefics in Invisible Half (Lagna – 6H)
  8. Rahu in Lagna + Sun and Mars being 7th from WM, both Lagna and Moon are in danger.
  9. Rahu in Kendra with Malefics, Kendras will get affected.
  10. Person born at eclipse time + (Mars + Saturn) in Lagna. Both Lumanaries + Lagna are in danger.
  11. All planets in Apoklimas (3-6-9-12)
  12. 22nd Dekkanna Lord and / or 64th Navamsha Lord are in Lagna

                                                 AVOIDANCE OF BALARISTA

  1. Lagna to be associated with Lagna Lord
  2. Lagna to be associated with Benefics.
  3. Lagna to be a Benefic sign + Benefics in Kendra.
  4. Strong Benefics (Own house) in Lagna and Kendra.
  5. Lagna Lord in Kendra associated with Benefics with no association with Malefics.
  6. Jupiter in 7H and Vargottama.
  7. LagnaLord and Jupiter in Kendra, Malefics in 3-6-11H.
  8. If one benefic in Kendra, then 8H and 8L should not be affected by Malefics.
  9. Malefic if hemmed by benefics (includes longitude difference) if two or more planets are in one sign.
  10. Sun in 11H (for day born) and Moon in 11H (for night born)
  11. Waxing Moon / Full Moon (SM) in own house, Exalted, placed in Kendra / Trikona, 11H, Benefic hemming, Benefic Vargas, associated with benefics and no association with Malefics.
  12. Moon in 6H / 8H carries no Dosha if
  • day born in KP
  • night born in SP
  • Moon to be in Benefic Drekkana along with benefic association
  1. Adhi Yoga – benefics in 6H / 7H / 8H from Lagna / Moon.
  2. Malefics in 3-6-11H promote life.

Author’s Note

It is the bounden duty of an astrologer to check for Balarista and inform the parents to safeguard the life of the baby (and mother) before venturing into casting the horoscope.
