MISCELLANEOUS
Aries (Mesha):
Poor health, problems relating to
children and other domestic affairs will trouble you
for some time. A drop in income and a setback in
your career are also indicated. You have come under
the malefic influence of Ashtamaya Shani Erashtaka
when Saturn moved into your 8th House on November 2. However,
Jupiter exalted in the 4th House and Rahu powerful in the 6th House
generating beneficial effects counter its malefic influence to a great
extent. Writers, authors and journalists can look forward to honors
and high recognition.
Taurus (Vrushabha):
The Sun conjoining Lag-
nadhipati Venus and Saturn in the inimical sign
of Scorpio in the 7th House foreshadow ill health,
marital problems and threats to your occupation
and reputation. With Mars in the 8th Dusthana, you
have to be on your constant guard to ward off possible threats to life.
Your skills in the field of arts and entertainment may bring you fame
and high recognition. Brief gainful journeys, happiness from broth-
ers and goodwill and co-operation from peers and associates are
strongly indicated.
Gemini (Mithuna):
If you are in politics, you can
look forward to an increase in your influence or even
high political office. The ongoing period is ideal for
reflection, planning and stock taking rather than go-
ing into action. Jupiter exalted in the 2nd House con-
tinue to confer on you wealth and prosperity. There
is a threat to life of your spouse if you are married. Achievements in
the fields of arts and academics are likely if you are running the Maha
Dasa of Mercury. Saturn’s movement to Scorpio will have no adverse
effect on you if your natal Saturn is strong.
Cancer (Kataka):
A setback to your position and
authority is likely following the loss of beneficial
influence of Saturn due to its exit from your 4th
House on November 2. Mars transiting in the 6th
House is very favorable for those nursing political aspirations. Jupiter
exalted in the 2nd House and Rahu Swakshetra in the 3rd House
give you an increase in income and gainful brief journeys while coun-
tering the ill effects produced by Saturn in the 5th House.
Leo (Simha):
Poor health of your mother will
cause your concern. Disputes and clashes with
relatives and domestic problems are on the
cards. The ongoing period is not conducive for
transaction relating to lands and other properties
like vehicles. Setbacks in educational pursuits
are indicated. You have to pay greater attention to health and safety
of your children. Rewards for your skills in the field of mass com-
munications and co-operation and patronage from peers and associ-
ates are in the offing. Jupiter exalted in the 12th House producing
the effects of Vimala Yoga gives you a keen perception, a pragmatic
outlook and guides you on the righteous path.
Virgo (Kanya):
You are likely to become rash, ir-
rational and headstrong due to a strong Rahu in
the Lagna although he fortifies you with courage,
drive and dynamism. Short-sighted decisions can
lead you to grief. Be on your alert to ward off cir-
cumstances that can lead to souring your relations
with colleagues, associates and relatives. You may also have to incur
heavy expenses and devote more time to helping others. Your great-
est source of strength is exalted Jupiter in the 11th House assuring
you of fame, popularity and a steady source of income.
Libra (Thula):
A decline in your fortunes would fol-
low the exit of Lagnadhipati Venus Rajayogakaraka
Saturn from your Lagna. Be on your guard to prevent
possible injury to right eye and face. Mercury enter-
ing your Lagna as the lord of the 9th House gives a
boost to your personality and shore up somewhat your plummeting
fortunes. Mars in the 3rd gives you invincibility. Foreign travel for an
academic or business purpose or on an overseas assignment by
the state is in the offing. Incidentally, you have come under the final
phase of the Lagna Shani Erashtaka with Saturn moving into your
2nd House on November 2.
Scorpio (Vrushika):
You are prone to Illness that
can emaciate you and sap your vigor and vitality due
to your coming under the influence of Lagna Shani
Erashtaka following Saturn’s entry into your Lagna on
November 2. However, the special aspect of Jupiter
over your Lagna and Saturn will counter the malefic effects to a great
extent. Lagnadhipati Mars in the 2nd House is a warning for you to
be extra careful in your speech lest you may hurt others. You are also
likely to suffer a slight decline in your position of authority and power.
Exalted Jupiter in the 9th Bhagyasthana protects you from evil forces
and brings you wealth, general prosperity and stabilizes your status.
Sagittarius (Dhanu):
You have come under the
phase one of the three phases - Lagna Shani
Erashtaka following Saturn’s entry into your 12th
House on November 2. However, there are sev-
eral factors that mitigate the malefic effect of this
Erashtaka. You are likely to feel a new surge of energy and zest with
Mars in the Lagna. Lagnadhipati Jupiter exalted in the 8th House
gives you wealth, and protects your life. Swakshetra Rahu in the 10th
Karmasthana confers fame, political success, gainful foreign travel
as well as career success.
Capricorn (Makara):
Mars in the 12th is a warn-
ing for you to avoid risk taking and getting involved
in clashes and disputes. Distant journeys, possibly
foreign travel, success in higher education, fame
and prosperity are in the offing with Swakshetra
Rahu in the 9th Bhagyasthana. Your favorable period continues with
Jupiter exalted in the 7th conferring on you fame, high status, career
success, conjugal happiness, gains and co-operation from business
partners. Mercury in the 10th Karmasthana stabilizes your career.
Aquarius (Kumbha):
Sun’s movement into your
10th House stabilizes your career. You have to brace
yourself to face attempts at tainting your reputation.
Loss of employment is possible if you are running
a Dasa of Saturn. You are strongly advised to steer
clear of involvements that can become prejudicial to
your honor and status. Gains from partnerships and protection from
physical harm are assured with Swakshetra Rahu in the 8th. Your
favorable period continues with Jupiter continuing transit in the 6th
House in exaltation.
Pisces (Meena):
Lagnadhipati Jupiter casting his
special aspect over your Lagna while being exalted
in the 5th House assures you a period of great suc-
cess. Mars in the 10th Karmasthana commanding
Digbala brings fame and a rise in your career. If you are in Foreign
Service you can look forward to the posting to a lucrative position
overseas. The Ashtamaya Shani Erashtaka troubling you has ended
with Saturn entering your 9th House on November 2. Swakshetra
Venus already in this House will bestow on you courage, fame and
prosperity.
