Teachers’ Day is celebrated on September 5. Let’s commemorate great guides of India who held our hands to take us to an enlightened path. But what helped them to attain the stature of a ‘teacher’? Through predictions from Pt. Deepak Dubey, know how the stars can lead an individual be a role-model.
Significance Of A Teacher
What Is Teachers’ Day?
In India, Teachers’ Day is celebrated on September 5 on the birth date of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Teachers’ day is generally celebrated to honor the individuals who achieved some significant landmarks in the field of academics. However, according to me, the day should also be dedicated to the persons who have contributed largely in motivating us to choose the right path in life. In this section, comes Savitribai Phule, the first female teacher of our country, Swami Vivekananda, Mother Teresa, Guru Rabindranath Tagore, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam with spiritual Gurus like Sant Gyaneshwar, Guru Nanak, Guru Gobind Singh and many others who come in the category of great guides of life.
Teacher & Astrology
According to astrology, attributes in an individual are decided by the impact of one or the other planet. As I have already discussed earlier, an ideal teacher should be deprived of anger, greed, fascination, selfishness and other similar negative characters. The feelings of forgiveness, inner knowledge, benevolence and the ability to express knowledge should dwell in an ideal Guru or teacher.
If we view this from astrological angle, Jupiter of benefic nature should reside in the birth-chart of a true or ideal teacher; Jupiter itself is considered to be the Guru or teacher of the planets. Mercury, the significator of intellect and Sun, the significator of broad mindedness, both should be in good planetary positions or a conjunction between Sun-Mercury should be there. It is essential for Jupiter to have a relation, either with the ascendant or the fifth house. The ascendant should not be affected by Rahu, Ketu, Mars or Saturn.
Now, let’s take a look at Kundali (birth-charts) of some of the great guides; this will help in knowing the influence of planets in making them great teachers:
Birth-Charts Of Eminent Personalities
First of all let’s take a look on the birth chart of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan
Sagittarius ascendant, that means zodiac sign of planet Jupiter, Sun is posited in its own sign Leo, in the ninth house and exalted Mercury with Venus in the centre.
The ascendant of Sagittarius is present in birth-chart of Swami Vivekananda; Sagittarius is the sign of Jupiter. The lord of the ninth house, Sun is in his ascendant. Conjunction of Mercury-Venus in the second house which makes him an energetic orator. Mars of Aries is present in the fifth-house that is directly aspected by Jupiter.
Rabindranath Tagore’s birth-chart is also of the ascendant Pisces, which is related to Jupiter and Moon is present in it. Exalted Sun is present in his second house; along with it, Mercury and Venus are also present. Exalted Jupiter is present in the fifth house.
The ascendant of Sagittarius is present in the birth-chart of Mother Teresa, which is the sign of Jupiter. Both, Jupiter and exalted Mercury are present in the tenth house.
Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar
Birth chart of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, the founder of Indian constitution, is also of ascendant Pisces that means related to Jupiter. Exalted Sun and Mercury are positioned in the second house.
Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
In the birth chart of our ex-president Shri Abdul Kalam, the Jupiter is posited in ascendant and that too in exalted condition. Exalted Mercury is in conjunction with Sun. In tenth house, Mars’ own sign is aspected by Venus.
If we analyse each of these birth-charts, there is one thing common in them i.e. Jupiter has a direct relation with the ascendant. Either the ascendant of Jupiter is itself present in the birth-charts, or Jupiter itself is positioned in the ascendant. The conjunction of Mercury-Sun is present in almost each one of them. In some cases, Mercury is in its exalted position. Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury are considered to be the planets associated with intellect and knowledge; Jupiter is chosen to be the foremost out of all these.
To be a true and ideal teacher, one should firstly become a good disciple. Let’s pay reverence to our teachers on this Teacher’s Day and pledge to become good students.
