Why Jupiter, Saturn and Mars have additional Aspects?

Get Jupiter, Saturn and Mars Planets
By Mrityunjai Ojha

Have you ever heard an astrologer telling you about some planet looking at other planet? Sometimes, they use the term “Drishti” for this action of looking, which is a Sanskrit word. However, in English, when a planet looks at other planet, the process or action is known as ‘Aspect’.

Each planet has 7th or direct aspect. It means that each planet aspects the planet sitting 7 houses across; and is called direct aspect because 7th is always vertically opposite. But, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars has additional aspects; and in this article, we are going to analyze its reason. This is a question that arises into astrology students' minds and astrology books don't answer it well. This question can be answered in many ways and let me share my views on it.

First way to look at it is based on the distance and placement of the planet in solar system. Mercury, Venus and Moon are placed between Sun and Earth. As Sun is the source of energy and light, Sun’s energy comes to Earth directly from Sun, Mercury, Venus and Moon. Due to this, these planets have only 7th aspect.

On the other hand, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are outer planets, means Earth is placed between Sun and these outer Planets. So, energy from these planets comes to the Earth due to reflection like we throw torch light on mirror and gets the reflection. Due to this reflection, these planets have additional aspects in 3 ways. It depends on their distance from Earth as it becomes wider and squarer as the distance increases, like Mars is 78.3 million km away from the Earth and Mars has 4th and 8th aspects, Jupiter is 624.4 million km away. So aspects from Jupiter becomes a bit much wider, having 5th and 9th aspects.

Saturn is more far away from Earth, that is 1.25 billion km. So, it gets the most wider aspect like 3rd and 10th. We can say that God has placed these planets on a specific position and distance to affect us.

There is another way to understand additional aspects of planet by the way of signification. In astrology, Mars tells about property, happiness, life, death and many more. In astrology, property and happiness are related to 4th house whereas longevity is related to 8th house. That is not all, Mars is a soldier, and protects the land, which is signified by 4th house. Mars is also considered thief that gives unearned and hidden money; these matters come under 8th house. Mars fights with enemy and denotes fight and death, that may be another reason for giving Mars 8th aspect. Seeing this resemblance of Mars to the matters related to 4th and 8th house, I believe that he has been given 4th and 8th aspects.

Similarly, in astrology, Jupiter tells about children, education, intelligence, religion, spirituality, luck etc. Education, children and intelligence come under 5th house; and religion, spirituality and luck come under 9th house.That is the reason Jupiter has been given 5th and 9th aspect.

Saturn tells about will power, Karma and allied things. Will power is attributed to 3rd house in astrology and Karma is attributed to 10th house. No wonder that Saturn has been given 3rd and 10th aspect. Saturn is also about stability, hard-work and patience. These are the matters related to 3rd house in astrology. That may be the reason for giving Saturn additional aspects of 3rd and 10th.

So to conclude, I believe that the placement of planets in solar system is one of the reasons. Another reason could be the resemblance of planets results with certain houses. Astrology is such a vast subject that I am sure there will be more reasons. Still, I hope that I would have been able to satisfy your curiosity to some extent.

A Cloud on the Horizon for Sahara Shri Subrata Roy

By Pt. Hanumaan Mishra
Sahara
It’s raining troubles for the Sahara Shri Subrata Roy. Hostile planets, upset stars; looks like he is headed to a Gorge. Let us see, if he is able to take on the challenges which the stars are throwing at him. Failing which he might lead to a downfall...

We always emphasize on the fact that the planets which give us pain, also provide us the medicine for that pain. In case of Sahara Shri this seems to be true word by word. It is said that the Saturn sitting in the 10th house provides fame and reputation on a grand scale. Even a person coming from a modest background will go on to achieve great heights in life. According to Lal Kitab Saturn in this house always gives the best result. However, if the native is doing something related to Sun and Mars then the results might be bad. As a matter of fact, Lal Kitab says in harsh words that such a situation can bring negative results for the native.

As per the principles of Lal Kitab, the investment of Sahara Group in real estate and sports will not be considered good. However, there are a few astrologers who are there to guide the Sahara Group, but the question arises as to why they have let the Group go for such attempts. In the Kundali of Sahara Shri Subrata Roy, Markesh is in the planet Mars. This is a positive indication which will produce some good results. Since the Markesh is in Mars, it is not a fact which can be ignored.

This can be explained more clearly with the help of an example. Let us say that we have a family rivalry with another family. That family never skips an opportunity to pull you down. A new member is born in that family who grows up to be is a fearless and strong person. That person develops a strong friendship with you and your family by helping you at the time of need. Although he is your friend but that still does not mean that you will make him the owner of your family. But, Sahara Shri Subrata Roy has committed this mistake by doing things related to Mars and Sun. Maybe he thought that Mars had a Rajyog in his Kundali which would help him to earn a lot of profits.

Keeping this in mind he gave away the ownership to that fearless friend. Though I don’t know him personally yet based on his Kundali I can say that whenever he has attempted any task on the basis of the significance of Mars the results are always unfavorable. Whenever he has tried to be daring to accomplish a task on a grand scale, he has never succeeded. Daring and fearlessness are traits of Mars and actions taken on the basis of Mars are not favorable for Sahara Shri Subrata Roy. Mars and Sun are considered to be the significators of strength and fearlessness. The person with Saturn and Marakesh Mars in the 10th House should not lock horns with Sun and Mars. Also, he should not do any task related to this. Sahara Shri Subrata Roy has committed this mistake.

Sun indicates that he should not lock horns with the people at the influential positions. Mars indicates tasks related to sports like cricket. Owning a cricket team is related to Mars. Now the question arises that the Sahara has previously dressed the Indian cricket team with its name on the uniform. But that was the good effect of Mars as it was that was a task supported by Mars but was not related to Mars. However, the decision to own a cricket team will not be that favorable. The real estate tasks are related to Mars and Sun and they are supported by the Sun. This prediction is based on Saturn and Mars. Normally, all the astrologers have a Kundali of Subrata Roy which might not be accurate. However, the place of Saturn will still be the same and the Marakesh in Ascendant will also be auspicious. Therefore, I have based my predictions on Saturn and Mars. On the basis of the transit of Sun, Saturn and Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node), it can be said that the time period from May to July will not be very good. If the remedial measures of the related planets are not performed on time then they might get the results of the 12th house. The 12th house is related to abroad, hospital and jail. This means Subrata Roy can get any of these results.

Mars in Aries Effects

By Pt. Hanumaan Mishra
Transit of Mars in Aries will bring some significant changes to your life.
Effect of ‘Mars in Aries’

Mars, Saturn and Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node) have transitory relation. Let us find out how dangerous and dreadful it could be.

On 12th March at 7:36pm, Mangal (Mars) is going back to its own Rashi (zodiac sign) Aries. It will be in Aries till 23rd May. However, it is in its Rashi, still it cannot be said to be at a favorable place. Mars is a planet of fire element. Aries is also considered the planet of fire element. Planet Mars, with its seventh aspect, will be watching Saturn and Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node) which are in Libra. Therefore, Mars will be at the seventh house of Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node) and Saturn. Hence, these are aspecting each other.

The relationship between Mars and Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node) is considered the Angarak Yog. At the same time, Saturn is said to be the significator of explosives and Mars the significator of fire. Therefore, temperature will increase rapidly. The incidents of fire will take place frequently in the country and world around. It is expected that there might be fire incidents at factories of leather, oil and machinery.  Also, there will be a sharp increase in the incidents of road accidents and electricity equipments might also not work properly which will lead to chaos in the system. There will be shortage of electricity. People related to professions like police, surgeon, boxing and other sports are not going to have a very favorable time.

The Angarak Yog made due to the Mars and Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node) indicates that there will increase incidents of fire. Also, there might be incidents of fire in trains. Telecommunication will also have an adverse effect because of this Yog. Libra and Aries will be affected greatly with this Yog so there is a possibility that networks of Reliance and Idea might also get affected. There will be interruptions in the internet services. Mars and Retro Saturn are in aspect with each other which indicates a volcanic eruption and an earthquake. The relation between Mars, Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node) and Saturn is also indicating a terrorist activity. This incident can take place in a western state. At the same time Mars which is in zodiac sign Aries can also be dangerous for the southern states. This indicates that a terrorist activity can take place in the southern states of India. Also, there will be an increase in the inflation rate. The public will not be satisfied and it is bound to increase. There will be a sharp increase in the hate speeches from political leaders. People who are investing in foreign lands will also face troubles.

The Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node) is in the Vishakha constellation of Jupiter. Therefore, it is expected that decrease in the rate of Gold will continue for a fortnight. The Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node) is in the constellation of Jupiter, which is aspected by Mars. This is indicating a religious dispute. Also, it looks like a big name in politics could get into some trouble. In the eastern areas, war like situations could arise. In India, areas like Marwar, Kashmir and Tamil Nadu should be given extra attention. Therefore, up till 23rd May, vehicles should be driven with utmost care. People with zodiac signs Libra, Aries, Scorpio, Capricorn and Aquarius should specially be careful.

Mars & Jupiter : Unlike Friends, Though Friends

By Astrologer Usha Saxena
Does Mars get healed with the aspect of Jupiter?

Mars & Jupiter : Unlike Friends, Though Friends


Is it a correct concept that evils of Mars get cancelled by the aspect of Jupiter? The mutual stationing, nature of aspect of Jupiter and Mars are usually considered auspicious. There is a concept that evils of Mars get cancelled by the aspect of Jupiter. This is based on the views that Jupiter’s high degree of wisdom and auspiciousness acts as nullification of aggressiveness of Mars. In actual cases, the result often proves quite opposite.

In many classics of Astrology the friendship, enmity and neutrality of the various planets to each other has been described. This is summarized in the table given below:

Planet Friend Neutral Enemy
Sun Moon, Mars, Jupiter Mercury Saturn
Moon Sun, Mercury Mars, Mercury, Venus, Saturn None
Mars Sun, Moon, Jupiter Venus, Saturn Mercury
Mercury Sun, Venus Mars, Jupiter, Saturn Moon
Jupiter Sun, Moon, Mars Saturn Venus, Mercury

But Yavanesvara classifies the relationships only into friends and foes. The friends of the planets are:
  • Sun: Jupiter
  • Moon: Jupiter and Mercury
  • Mars: Mercury and Venus
  • Mercury: All except the Sun
  • Jupiter: All except Mars
  • Venus: Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn
  • Shani: Mercury, Jupiter and Venus

Yavancharya states:

"गुरौ तु भौम परिह्त्य सर्वे”

Except Mars, all others are the friends of Jupiter.

The opinion of Shudraka backed by Yavanacharya appears to have some good reasoning behind it. Mars is debilitated where Jupiter is exalted and Jupiter is debilitated where Mars is exalted.

Naturally they cannot be friends. We can say they are ‘’unlike friends, though friends ‘’.

Jupiter and Mars are absolutely opposite to each other. Mars is very aggressive and short tempered; these faults cause hatred, anger, fires, accidents and many more. These faults give defects to ones personality. On the other hand, Jupiter is synonymous of patience, gentleness, wisdom and happiness. Jupiter has saintly temperament.

These opposite natures of Mars and Jupiter have made the belief that Jupiter nullifies all the evils of Mars or to certain extent minimize them.

“A strong Jupiter is capable of counteracting all the evils if he is in ascendant.” - Saravali Ch 12 Shloka 1
But the friendship of Mars and Jupiter is like a friendship between a criminal and a saint.

Saravali says about placement of Mars in signs of Jupiter.

Mars in Sagittarius

“Should Mars be in Sagittarius, native will have many wounds, be harsh in speech, will lose his happiness and money due to anger and will not respect elders.” - Ch. 25 –Shloka 17-18

Mars in Pisces

“Should Mars be in Pisces person will be troubled by diseases, will loos his position by his cunning and cheating disposition, will be depressed in spirits, will disrespect elders, be unkind.” - Saravali Ch-25 Shloka 23-24

This means Mars does not acquire the goodness of signs owned by Jupiter.

So blindly following that Jupiter’s aspect or conjunction with Mars reduces the evils caused by malefic nature of Mars can lead to miscalculations.

I am giving two examples where native can not get any help from Jupiter.

1. 28-11 -1963, 03:00am 79:02E, 28:49 N - Mars is in 4th house and Jupiter is aspecting ascendant from 7th house. Native is depressed, sickly, has heart disease.

2. 01-May -1979, 16:30 79:02E, 28:49 N - Mars is in 7th house and exalted Jupiter in 11th house. Marriage lasted not a single day.

Effects of afflicted Mars – Some New Interpretations

By Astrologer Usha Saxena 
According to astrology, Mangal Dosha (Afflicted Mars) occurs when Mars enters the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th and 12th house. It is considered as an important element while matching the birth charts of individuals for marriage.

Mars is considered as the planet of anger, fire, tussle, fight, chivalry, ego and many more. While matching Kundali, the effects of afflicted Mars are only considered. Therefore, only negative aspects have been discussed here. It is already known that the negative effects will create disturbances in family as well as married life. However, considering a person’s fate to be bringing bad luck or widow-hood is not justified without analyzing the entire birth chart deeply. But the question comes that if all the negative aspects are true for someone then it is possible to change the destiny or not. As per the rules of Vedic astrology, results of predictions are always made after proper analysis of place and time. Today, according to the changed situations of time, we can deliberate the positions of Mars in 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th and 12th house in the following ways:
