Jupiter’s Transit into Cancer

18 Jun

Gurubyo Namaha

Jupiter’s Transit into Cancer

Jupiter is transiting from Gemini to Cancer on 19th June 2014 and it will remain in Cancer for about a year, till 14th July 2015 to be precise. During this period Jupiter will be in his house of Exaltation. Jupiter is also known as “Lord of the Fortune” and in Vedic Astrology it is considered as a Shubha or a benefic planet and powerful amongst all the planets. He is capable of warding off the evil results and bestowing prosperity and contentment to the native. Jupiter is Guru or Teacher of Devatas and been conferred the title of “Devaguru”.
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 Janmarashi it gives good results. We can say that the native has Gurubala. Just as the guru removes the problems of the devotees, the planet Guru brings fortune for most people across the board. The placement of Guru in the 9th house is extremely beneficial. The person with a 9th House Guru will overcome all problems and become successful in a miraculous way.
Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system, and its symbolism bears this out. Jupiter is the principle of expansion: expanding the mind to super conscious realms and philosophy, expanding our physical horizons through long journeys, and expanding the physical body through putting on weight (or just plain being large).
Jupiter is a planet of manifestation. If well placed by sign or house or well aspected it can signify subtle understanding of life’s deeper principles, learning through travel or higher education, general good fortune or luck, and material abundance. If poorly placed or afflicted it symbolizes indiscriminate sensuality, self-indulgence, wastefulness, greed, avarice, and wanderers. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces where it embodies all the planet’s positive aspects, and is exalted in Cancer where it expands the nurturing, mothering principle.
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 and cholesterol.

While interpreting the result of the transit, the following points must be borne in mind.
 Reference Point
The reference or starting point is the Janmarashi 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 Janmarashi only.
Lordship of Jupiter in Natal Chart:
It is important that we should identify the lordship of Jupiter in the natal chart before we set out to make any predictions. For example, for a native whose Ascendant is Pisces and Janmarashi is Capricorn, June 2014 transit should be interpreted to give specific results pertaining to the Karakatwa of First House and Tenth House apart from the general prediction given above of Jupiter being in the 7th house during transit.
Dasha and Bhukti:
Whatever interpretation we arrive at using above method must be corroborated 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.
Author’s Note:
The transit interpretation though appears very simple; it involves in-depth analysis of afflictions, retrogression and ownership of Dusthanas / Bad Houses of Jupiter in natal chart as well as Veda (Obstruction) to Jupiter in Transit and the result obtained from the transit of other powerful planet, namely Saturn. Notwithstanding all these, 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.
