Jupiter Transit – once in 0.98 year


Astrological Event: On May 8, 2011 Jupiter moves from Pisces to Aries (From Meena Rasi to Mesha Rasi).



Jupiter takes about 11.86 years (close to 12 years) to move through the 12 signs of your horoscope. So once every 0.98 year which is almost an year the greater benefic planet Jupiter moves from one sign to the next one (clockwise) on the Zodiac belt. Each time it moves it is referred to as Jupiter Transit (Guru Peyarchi). Since Jupiter is the best of all planets – the savior and the planet that is believed to remove so many defects in our life, each time it moves Astrologers all over the world are eager to inform people about what they mean to each of the 12 signs. So we are back once again because Jupiter Transits on MAY 8, 2011 into Mesha (Aries) after having been in Meena Rasi (Pisces) for nearly an year.

Jupiter the blessing planet!

Jupiter is the blessing planet because He holds with Him all that which we consider as blessing. He is the indicator of Wealth and hence called the Dhanakaraka. He blesses us with auspicious ceremonies at home and the best one of all – marriage if you are unmarried and eagerly waiting for it. He is the karaka for children and hence called Putrakaraka. The happiness one gets when a new child is born is unlimited especially for those who have been childless for a long time after marriage. Jupiter rules over Gold, the best of all metals. Possessing Gold and buying Gold happens when Jupiter is in a blessing mood. Do not buy when Gold when Jupiter is not in a blessing mood because Saturn may take it away from you if Saturn is not well placed. Pledging Gold usually happens when Jupiter is not well placed. Jupiter is the indicator of bigger vehicle – the mightiest of them – like Benz etc because Jupiter represents the Elephant. If Jupiter is not currently in a blessing mood it only means you may have to wait for the next Jupiter transit. Thank God!

Remedy:  In case the current transit of Jupiter is not good, do not worry. Worship on all Thursdays in places of worship where the rush is more than on other days. These are places associated with Guru (Jupiter). Pray to your favorite God, Goddess (any form any religion) on all Thursdays. Give lots of gifts, books and support to poor teachers especially if you know them. Pray to your KULA DEVATA (Family GOD) without fail. Be patient and wait for next transit of Guru. Until then if you do the remedies you will not be affected that much when compared to those who do nothing about the transit.

If you cast the horoscope on May 8, 2011 you will get the above chart (of course we have shown only 2 major planets here). The chart shows Jupiter has moved from Pisces to Aries (from Meena to Mesha) but Saturn remains in the same until 15th November 2011. So let us view the next chart to know how the astrology sky looks like after  Saturn moves over to the next sign – from Virgo (Kanya) to Libra (Thula).

On June 6, 2011, Rahu moves from Dhanus to Vrischika (ie from Sagittarius to Scorpio. So year 2011 has 3 major planets transiting – 1st it is Jupiter (Guru), then it is Rahu and finally on November 15, 2011 Saturn moves from Virgo to Libra. Whenever RAHU moves its tail which is KETU also moves simultaneously. When it comes to transit, Rahu and Ketu have lesser role to play with regard to Moon sign whereas it may impact greatly the individual horoscope if the person is going through RAHU Dasha or Bhukti or Ketu Dasha or Bhukti.

First things First:

When Jupiter moves into a sign it enters a particular house from your Moon Sign. It may be any house from 1st to 12th. If it happens to be 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th or 11th house then you are blessed by the transit of Jupiter. In the other houses he is not in a mood to bless you. But you can by ardent prayers and right kind of charity through which you may receive the blessings of God.

Jupiter stays in the sign for  about a year, but do not expect constant good effect or bad effect. Sometimes when certain planets enter a particular house the promised good effect (and the expected bad result) will be blocked. Table 1 gives you the details. Table 1 is a permanent information on Jupiter Transit you can use year after year because the good transit houses remain the same.

In the table you may have noticed the words “Blocking house”. This is astrologically known as Vedha house.

Example 1: For Meena Rasi (Pisces Moon Sign) people Jupiter will occupy the 2nd house for about an year from May 8, 2011. This is considered very good. But during the course of the Jupiterian year, planets may move in the 12th house. During such times the good effect of Jupiter being in the 2nd house will fail to manifest because the planets in the 12th house will block the Good Jupiter who is in the 2nd house. Usually Sun, Mercury, Venus will move through all the houses in a year. Sometime Mars may also move over the 12th house.

For your information let me tell you that during the current year 2011, there are 3 major Transits happening – Jupiter (Guru), Rahu and so Ketu and then Saturn (Shani). So in the year 2011 you will witness great changes at all levels.

When you hear Astrologers speak about a dosha (blemish) in your horoscope do not forget to ask your Astrologer “is Jupiter glancing at the planet causing the dosha” because if it does you will be saved from the problems that arise out of the said dosha. Such is the power of Jupiter. All doshas are believed to be canceled or decreased to the bare minimum as soon as Jupiter looks at the troublesome planet.  This logic works not only on your natal horoscope but it also works very well with regard to Transit of Planets.

If you are experiencing the difficulties in life that arise because you are currently going through 7 and 1/2 years Saturn (Sade Sati) do not jump to conclusion that everything is over for you. Jupiter may be well placed. If Jupiter is well placed then in Transit then imagine that you have a bullet proof shield in front of you wherever you go. The effect of a bad Saturn phase will not affect you as much as for those Jupiter is not well placed.

From your Moon Sign count houses :  2, 5, 7, 9 and 11 as positive and beneficial for Jupiter to move in. If Transit Jupiter is in the following house  then sit back, relax and say Thank God.The following table is a modification of Table 1 but we have added the names of Rasi so that you don’t have to count the numbers.

The above table is to be used only when Jupiter occupies Aries (Mesha). It happens approximately every 12 years. So after about 12 years you may use it again because Jupiter will then be in Mesha Rasi.

Who should know about the current Jupiter Transit?

Guru means relief, solutions and luck. We look for these when we are in a bad luck phase or when we are in troubled times. So those who are going through 7 1/2 years Sani (Sade Sati) and those who are going through Ashtama Sani (8th house transit of Saturn) should check out to see if there is any relief from the relentless challenges of Saturn.

Those who are afflicted by Transit Saturn:

  1. Simha Rasi (7.5 years Sani)
  2. Kanya Rasi (7.5 years Sani)
  3. Thula Rasi (7.5 years Sani)
  4. Kumbha Rasi (Ashtama Sani)

Simha Rasi:

Simha Rasi people may heave a sigh of great relief because of 3 reasons:
  • Reason 1: The challenging Sade-Sati (7.5 years Saturn phase) is almost coming to an end at last.
  • Reason 2: On May 8, 2011, Jupiter enters Mesha (Aries) which is the 9th house from SIMHA Rasi..
  • Reason 3: On Nov 11, 2011 Saturn enters the 3rd house considered the best of Saturn Transit

Kanya Rasi:

Kanya Rasi people may not find anything positive from the Jupiter transit that happens on May 8, 2011 because Transit Jupiter occupies the 8th house.

Remedies for Kanya Rasi people:

  • Since Transit Jupiter is not well placed you need to catch the attention of Jupiter by intensely praying on all Thursdays if your Ascendant (Lagna) is any of the following: Vrishaba Lagna, Mithuna Lagna, Kanya Lagna, Thula Lagna, Makara Lagna or Kumbha Lagna.
  • If your Lagna is not any of the above then wear plenty  of Yellow clothes, wear an yellow sapphire on the right  hand index finger to get the positive vibrations of Jupiter in your life

Thula Rasi:

Thula Rasi people may heave a sigh of great relief because Jupiter will enter the 7th house and stay there for close to a year. So Jupiter will shield you from the challenges created by Saturn. So although you are currently in the 7.5 years Sani you will notice some good things happen after May 8, 2011 because Jupiter is in a mood to bless you.

Kumbha Rasi:

Kumbha Rasi people will have to be very very careful between May 8, 2011 and Nov 15, 2011 because of 2 reasons:

  • Jupiter moves over into the 3rd house from your Moon Sign (a very challenging transit)
  • Transit Saturn is already in the 8th from your Moon Sign.

So you need to wait for the Ashtama Sani period to be over. This is caused by current Transit of Saturn in the 8th from your Moon sign. Ashtama means 8. Ashtama Sani will be over only on November 15, 2011. Kindly refer to my knol: http://knol.google.com/k/saturn-transit-on-september-10-2009#

In this chart you will see KUMBA Rasi marked as House No.1 This applies to all those who have Moon in that portion of the zodiac. Moon is in Aquarius or Kumbha Rasi for all people who belong to Kumbha Rasi. In other words wherever your Moon is that is your Janma Rasi or Moon Sign.

Transit Jupiter is considered very inauspicious whenever he goes  through the 3rd house. The 3rd house is a a house of great changes. If the person is going through a phase where a change is good that there is no need to worry. Yet, changes are resisted by all people because we like to live in the same place – the comfort zone. For some this change will do good depending on the dasha or bhukti that they are undergoing currently.

KUMBHA Rasi person should expect major change in their life style:

When Saturn is in the 8th house while Jupiter is in the 3rd such period will manifest as a forced change that is similar to what happens when an area gets hit by a storm or tsunami. The first defense is be patient for everything to settle down, because bad things do not last forever. To tide over this transit prayers in appropriate temples or places of worship (for all religions) is recommended.

If you were a kind and generous person, having spent  some money on charity and donations for good actions, then you will not have much trouble. You may still have a change but high stress will not be there.

Transits are like exam times. The good students always have a greater chance of passing with good marks. The bad ones get into trouble.

Who ELSE should know about the current Jupiter Transit?

The answer is obvious. For those people who had Jupiter badly placed until May 8, 2011. These people may be anxious to know if Jupiter transit will bring in any relief to their problem or not?. Remember that in the Jupiter year 2010-2011 Jupiter was in Meena Rasi (Pisces) and on May 8, 2011 Jupiter moves into the next sign Mesha.

The Greatest Beneficiaries! but wait until Nov 15, 2011

Simha Rasi people 
and Dhanus Rasi people are the greatest beneficiaries of Jupiter Transit on May 8, 2011. Though this transit all by itself will bring in great relief from existing problems and slowdowns you may have to for obtaining even better results be  patient until Saturn moves into Thula Rasi on Nov 15, 2011 because after the Transit of Saturn even Saturn will be auspiciously placed. Saturn will be extra happy to be in Libra because Saturn is in an exalted state in Thula Rasi which sign is the 3rd for Simha Rasi people, and the 11th for Dhanus Rasi person.

For Simha Rasi, it is Jupiter in 9 with Saturn in 3rd and for Dhanus Rasi it is Jupiter in 5th and Saturn in 11th house. Remember you get this once in 60 years.

Transit Saturn in the 3rd, 6th and 11th house is extremely good. Saturn is good in the 10th house too but only after he crosses halfway through. Right now Saturn has crossed the middle of the 10th house. So Dhanus Rasi people will start seeing the benefits. Projects will move ahead, cash flow increases, more activity and good reasons to rejoice in business or office.

Saturn is EXALTED (UTCHAM) in Thula (LIBRA) which is where SATURN will be after Nov. 15, 2011. What a place to be if Saturn is always well placed according to a persons’ Moon Sign as well. Another interesting thing is that SATURN and JUPITER look at each other. Even if there was a little bit of bad in Saturn, the aspect of JUPITER (GURU) will remove it.

Hence for Simha Rasi people after Nov 15, 2011 it is CELEBRATION time. Saturn in the 3rd and exalted and Jupiter in the 9th house. Similar transit happens once in 60 years. Almost a once in a life time chance to try out even the riskiest project or work, so go all out to find and get what you want. Check out whether the planetary periods Dasha and Bhukti is Okay.

Simha Rasi people will feel lot better because the movement of Saturn marks the end of a 7.5 years of great challenges and obstacle ridden path with financial loss, bad luck even though you did your job well, bad things happening to you though it was not your fault. Therefore even though Dhanus Rasi people also will be a great beneficiary of this transit, Simha Rasi people will feel the BIG DIFFERENCE.

For Dhanus Rasi people Saturn enters the 11th house. So more of the 11th house results will always come to Dhanus Rasi people because Transit Saturn is also exalted. In the diagram before May 8, 2011 you see Saturn in the 10th house but actually Saturn has crossed half the sign which means even now Transit Saturn is favourable to you but in case you want to be strict with Astrology rules you may safely say that after Nov 15, 2011 it is a period of golden opportunities, success, fame, getting what you have been dreaming for a long time. So do not let go off any good opportunity e

specially if it comes in the same matters that you are already experienced in. Even in new line of work you will get good results so what to say of those in which you are already the expert. In the next chart you will see Ju piter and Saturn looking at each other. While this is the same for all the people i n the world, Jupiter happens to be in your 5th house and Saturn happens to be in your 11th house. That is the great thing about the mutual aspect of Jupiter and Saturn.

Let us sum it up!

Your Janma Rasi After Jupiter Transit on May 8, 2011 From your Moon Sign Jupiter occupies House No. Current Saturn position (Saturn is in Kanya) From your Moon Sign Currently Saturn occupies House No. The NETT result. (After May 8 2011 Jupiter Transit how is it?)  Comments

Now Astrology folks lets get on with it…….. ALL REALS

Though the actual transit of Jupiter is on May 8th, 2011 do you think it will start giving effects to everyone from day one of the Transit. You will be surprised to know that for Aswini Pada 1, the effect of Jupiter Transiting in the 1st Sign (Janma Rasi) has actually started from November 10, 2010, whereas for a person born in Krittika Pada 1 of Mesha Rasi the effect of Jupiter Transit will actually start only from September 24, 2011.Is it not great to know that Moon sign effects are not really general if you know where exactly your Moon is in your Moon Sign. If it is placed earlier on in the sign that you belong to the effect of Jupiter Transit starts earlier than the announced date of Transit.

Points to Remember:

Transit of planets does no doubt have a great impact on us. It is like the changing environment as we drive on the road. As we move from  daylight to darkness and from darkness to daylight  all of us have noticed the effects when we drive. But a good driver (a good person as per Karma) can handle the night time as well. So continue to do good to others and you will not be that much affected by the planetary influence (it is actually not the planets it is your own Karma that is either giving you the daylight or the night time) so an attitude change is all that is needed – a change from the bad to the good, from ignorance to knowledge, from darkness to light and from mortality to the infinite.

Also your current Dasha and Bhukti and the placement of the planet ruling the Dasha and Bhukti has a greater effect on your life much more than the current Transit. This is comparable to the road, the quality of the road, is it bending, is it narrow or wide? all such things should be known. So get your horoscope examined by a good Astrologer in your locality.
