transit in Libra
Jupiter, the
greatest benefic, moves to Vedic Libra in transit on September 12, 2017.
The Jupiter
transit is always noteworthy, since apart from being the greatest benefic, it
is an outer planet and changes Rashis only after 13 months or so. Its heavy
beneficence, therefore, shifts location and the influence if felt by all in
their lives.
The Gurus:
There are two
Gurus in Vedic astrology, Jupiter and Venus. Though by their mythic
personalities, Jupiter is the preceptor of the Devas and Venus of the Daityas,
the Gurus are inscrutable in their working. Their influence in our individual
lives is not so readily deciphered as their personalities and portfolios would
Role of the
Gurus in Higher Teaching:
In higher
teachings on the subject of the Gurus, it is systematically derived as to which
of the two is ruling the material Karma of the individual, and which the
spiritual. Therefore, it is quite possible in a given chart that Venus is the
one adamant on spiritual insight while Jupiter is insistent on material Karma
manifesting. This can completely change the reading of the horoscope at the
higher levels. Sometimes the Guru will force his hand and will not let life
unfold at all unless his wishes are met.

The Basic Fact of Jupiter in Libra:
Apart from what
has been stated above, it is to be remembered that Libra is ruled by Venus, and
the two planets are often at loggerheads with each other being advisors of opposite
camps. In the result, Jupiter is not comfortable in Libra, which is the 7th
House of the natural zodiac. The preceptor feels flummoxed in the Kama Bhava.
Doubtlessly, Jupiter will seek to give its blessings but these are fundamentally
priestly in nature and may impede the enjoyment of Libra. If in any Libra
horoscope, Jupiter is also intent on spirituality then it can be a very enigmatic
transit for them. By Libra horoscope is meant a Vedic horoscope with Libra
rising in the Lagna. These can be in the nature of a lifting of the veil from
over the matters which are governed by Libra, and which were not visible
earlier. This may not be a conventionally easy experience. Jupiter does not
like what he sees in Libra and a lot will also depend on the natal planets in
Libra in any given nativity. This will contribute heavily to the overall texture
of experience in this transit. This accompanies the recent
transit of Rahu-Ketu to Cancer and Capricorn
respectively, which in turn
followed the Saturn
transit to Sagittarius
. Certainly, the movement of all the slow-moving
Karmic planets indicates a significant shift in the delivery of Karma for
individuals and entities.
Drishti or Planetary Aspects of Transit Jupiter in Libra
From its transit
station in Libra, Jupiter aspects Aquarius with its 5th House
aspect. If Aquarius is afflicted in any horoscope, the delusion inherent in the
sign coupled with the affliction, will be dispelled and clarified, due to the
aspect of Jupiter. The error, if any, in knowledge-based perception of reality,
the future, income, gains and future prospects and hedonistic or philosophical
ideals in general have a good chance of being corrected. However, sometimes
ignorance is bliss, and when ignorance comes to an end, it can be a testing
Jupiter also
aspects Gemini with its 9th House aspect and brings religiosity to
the sign. Jupiter guides the incessant flow of information to higher ground and
the intellectual resources of Gemini may be put to good use. Communications and
relations with the peers, acquaintances and siblings are set to undergo a
change in an active way. Jupiter’s aspect to Aries is weak and is unlikely to
cause any significant change unless other factors in a given horoscope override
Drishti or Sign aspects of Transit Jupiter in Libra
Jupiter in Libra
is very aware of Leo, Aquarius and Taurus, having sign aspect on these Rashis. Sign
aspects are a function of awareness. In this sense, Aquarius is very strongly
influences by Jupiter. Aquarius is also going to be quite aware of Jupiter in
Libra. So for Aquarius Lagna, Jupiter in the 9th House is bringing
some major changes through events related to the father, the Gurus or the
teachers, students in higher studies and foreign travel. Jupiter is changing
the concept of Dharma for them. Similarly, for Libra Lagna since Jupiter is
transiting the Lagna itself, the future, children, love affairs, planning and
such matters are being put into focus through one’s own thought processes and
life circumstances.
For Leo, Jupiter
is transiting its Marana Karaka Sthana position showing some problems with the
3rd House significations but Jupiter aspects the sign with Rashi
Drishti showing that the awareness and the higher truths pertaining to these
events are known to Leo. Taurus is similarly influenced and both for Libra and
Taurus Lagna, the other sign will show developments. For example, for Libra,
the 8th House of health and chronic conditions, the atmosphere prevailing
in the marriage, and other matters are put into focus due to the transit of
Jupiter in the Lagna and for Taurus, the 6th House of work and
adversarial interaction has the weight of Jupiter in it.
It can be readily
seen that a myriad factors must be painstakingly and exhaustively analysed so
as to come to a clear picture regarding the contours
of life in the horoscope of a given person
, when it is studied with all its
planets and all the divisional charts; just the basic parameters pertaining to
the transit of a single planet are themselves fairly elaborate. In the exhaustive
analysis of the natal horoscope
, it is nothing less than a crystal-clear picture
of Karma which is sought, given the complexity of life across the world in the
current times.
Impact of
the Jupiter Transit on the Various Lagna/ Ascendants
It is relative to
the twelve
Lagna in Vedic astrology
that the influence of the transit planet is to be
determined. By Lagna is meant the Udaya Lagna or the sign rising on the eastern
horizon at the time of birth.
As stated above, Libra
Lagna is dominantly influenced with the great benefic blessing the sign in
its own way. Jupiter is the 3rd and 6th Lord for the
Lagna and is a functional malefic and this is another reason why the blessings
may not come in the traditionally easy way. Aries Lagna is strongly influenced
in a positive way since Jupiter is transiting the 7th House from the
Lagna. The attitude to the marriage, spouse and partnerships becomes healthy
and guided by higher principles. Both matters relating to income, gains on the
one hand and siblings on the other are positively influenced. The darkness and
opacity in the minds of friends can be dispelled by the strong Aries during
this transit and he can render forthright advice.
Taurus feels the influence largely in work and wealth related matters due
to the focus of the planet on the Artha Trikona. Those in knowledge based
professions and work will benefit since Jupiter transits through the 6th
House and aspects the 10th and the 2nd Houses from the
Lagna. Intellectuals gain from the work they put in and shine in their sphere
of work as well, though the two facets are not always seen together in life. The
Kutumba, or the family, and financial liquidity improve. Gemini sees
important developments pertaining to children and it will depend on the natal
planets in Libra as to the nature of events which transpire. Religion and
belief in God, and a change in the way the world is perceived are significant
shifts in life.
Cancer has the transit in the 4th House where Jupiter feels
exalted but the sign is Libra and the happiness is short-lived. Again its basic
discomfort in Libra will be conditioned by the natal planets placed there. Jupiter
is a planet of spiritual illumination and in the 4th House of home
and the heart, these areas could be illuminated for the better in the long run.
This transit is about feeling and emotions. Jupiter aspects the 8th
House and the 12th House, both quite personal houses. The 8th
is Aquarius where the light of Jupiter shines bright to dispel the confusion
and the 12th is Gemini, where personal interaction receives the
benefic rays of the planet.
Leo has an interesting time of it because Jupiter is the 8th
Lord in the 3rd House in Marana Karaka Sthana. Siblings, Karma,
peers, neighbours, writing, and certain personal matters come to the fore.
Awareness is a key word due to the sign aspect. Since Jupiter is in Marana, a
person indicated by the Libra in the 3rd House could be going
through a difficult time during this transit, should their horoscopes so
Virgo feels empty as Jupiter exits the sign and family and money come into
sharp focus. Here too matters pertaining to work and status in society are at
the forefront. It will depend as to which planet is placed in Libra in the
natal horoscope. Due to the indifferent mood of Jupiter in Libra, a difficult
planet in Libra could prove testing as the person will suddenly see the higher
perspective pertaining to wealth and family matters. Scorpio has Jupiter
in the 12th House which is good for expenses on the right things and
for new beginnings in anything in life. Like Cancer Lagna, emotions are
feelings are at the forefront during this transit. The difficult home situation
receives the grace of Jupiter and so do matters which decide the continuance of
the marital alliance. These are all helpful inputs from Jupiter in these areas.
Sagittarius has Jupiter in the 11th House which is the Karaka Bhava
for Jupiter and despite being in Libra, Jupiter will help friendships, social
participation and income. Personal matters, marriage and relationships come
into focus with minor influences on children and future planning.
Capricorn has Jupiter in the 10th House which is excellent for an
elevated attitude to work. Like Virgo, it is the Artha Trikona which comes into
focus and work, sustenance and status in life become important areas of focus.
Aquarius has been discussed elsewhere but additionally the self and luck and
fortune will be the matters which will influence this Lagna the most. Pisces
transforms itself with Jupiter in the 8th House. The marriage receives
the blessings of Ganga Jala. People start investing in the markets and taking
loans for projects. The emotional structuring of the individual may change due
to the influence on the Jala Tattwa if this is indicated at the given time in a
Pisces Lagna Vedic horoscope.
As for the impact
on the Arudha Lagna (AL)
, Jupiter is basically good for Virgo Arudha,
where it blesses the wealth and shows the right ways to earn and manage the
liquidity in pragmatic ways. Gemini Arudha has excellent future planning
in this period and children excel. Pisces AL benefits due to the
excellent worldly situation of the spouse. Sagittarius AL gets great
income from wonderful sources in the best possible way.
This is an
important transit and ought to be considered in any serious interpretation of
the natal horoscope. If Jupiter is ruling any major Dasha system, then it
becomes all the more significant.
