Most of the people who go to astrologers for horoscope readings are told that there are some negative planets in their horoscope which are making negative yogas and there are some positive planets in their horoscope which are making positive yogas in their horoscope. And as I have already mentioned in my previous articles, the nature and strength of the planets for a person is decided as soon as he takes birth. For example if Saturn and Jupiter are working negatively in a person’s horoscope, their negativity and strength is registered at the birth of that person and accordingly the strength of bad yogas formed by them in his horoscope is registered. In the same way if Mercury and Venus are working positively in a person’s horoscope, their nature and strength is registered at the time of the birth of that person and accordingly the strength of good yogas formed by them in his horoscope is registered.
But a question arises here. Why is the nature and strength of planets decided for every person at the time of his birth. Does this mean that it has something to do with his past life or past lives of that person. Yes it certainly has to do with his past lives and particularly with his recent past life. And the nature of the planets is not decided at the time of the birth of a person. It is decided a long time before a person takes birth. It is decided when a person dies in his previous life. Whatever a person does throughout his life, good Karmas and bad Karmas, all the impressions are marked on his soul and as this person dies, it is very much clear from these impressions as to what he is going to be in the next life. But reading the impressions marked on the soul of a dying person is the field of a spiritually advanced human and not an astrologer.
And this person comes back on earth or takes a new birth, only when the planetary combinations are suitable to reward and punish him for the good and the bad Karmas he had done in his past lives. And as this person takes birth those combinations are recorded in his horoscope and that is where an astrologer comes into the picture. By reading the negative planets and their strengths and by reading the positive planets and their strengths in the horoscope, an astrologer can tell the future events of a person’s life. But what is it that actually makes a particular planet go negative or positive for a particular person. What are the Karmas done by a person in his previous life or lives which make a particular planet go negative for him and a particular planet go positive for him. Let’s try to understand this on the basis of good and bad Karmas done by a person in his past lives. And let’s consider all the planets one by one.
The Sun: The Sun signifies the father, the king, the government, the head of states, administrators and the ruling authorities. The sun is also a signifier of the Self and responsible for the birth of a male child among many other things. The bad Karmas done towards the significations ruled by the Sun in previous life or lives will make the Sun work negatively for a person and its strength will depend on the extent of the bad Karmas done by the person. And its field of impact would depend on the field where the person committed those bad Karmas in his previous life. For example, a person who has kept on troubling his father in his previous life, is likely to suffer due to his father or he may not have his father with him for the most of his present life or his son may give him the same treatment that he gave to his father in his previous life.
And due to this reason only we see some cases in which the son is suffering due to his father which may include spending excessive amount of money on his father’s illness, not having the love of his father right from the start of his birth or a father is suffering due to his son in one way or the other. It all depends upon what this person had done in his previous lives. Whatever he had seeded in his previous lives, he is supposed to reap in the present and coming lives. In the same way the person who was not fair to the government and cheated it with taxes and other kinds of frauds in his previous lives, is likely to be unlucky with the house of government in this life and may get punished by government in one way or the other. And similarly the other negative impacts of the Sun in a person’s life can be related to the bad Karmas done by him in the respective fields. And in the same way the positivity and strength of the Sun for a person is related to the good Karmas done by him which influenced the fields signified by the Sun.
The Moon : The Moon is a signifier of the Mother in particular and it also signifies the mind and the emotions. The large bodies of water like rivers and seas, the psychics and the healers are also ruled by the Moon among other things. The good or bad Karmas done towards the Mother or the mother like ladies in the previous lives decide the nature and strength of the Moon for the present life of a person. In the same way the good or bad Karmas done towards large water bodies would decide the nature and strength of the moon for a native. And the fields of impacts in this life are the indicator of the person’s field of doing good or bad Karmas in previous lives.
Jupiter : The main significances ruled by Jupiter are Saints and holy religious places, spiritual books, teachers, Spiritual Gurus and Priests among other things. The good or bad Karmas done to the persons, places or things ruled by Jupiter in previous lives would decide the nature and strength of Jupiter for the coming lives. And the field of impact in the present life can indicate the fields signified by Jupiter which were affected positively or negatively by a person in his previous lives.
Venus : Though there are many significances ruled by Venus, but its nature is mainly decided by the good or bad deeds done towards the lover, partner or spouse and women in general. The people who kept on troubling and cheating their partners in previous lives and the persons who did not show any respect to women in general, are very likely to have a negative placement of Venus in their horoscope causing them to suffer from the same effects, that is, they are being cheated or troubled by their lovers or spouses in their present lives or they may not have any love life at all. And on the other hand the people who made every effort to make their lovers or spouses happy and respected the women in general in their previous lives are very likely to have a strong positive placement of Venus in their horoscope which blesses them with the company of beautiful, charming and caring partners and a good reputation among the women.
Mars : Mars is a signifier of brothers, friends, strength and weapons among other things. The people who used their force and strength to get something by wrong means, the people who used their strength to suppress other people, the people who killed or hurt people by using weapons, the people who kept on troubling their brothers and friends throughout their previous lives are very likely to have a strong negative placement of Mars in their horoscope in their present life and are likely to suffer the similar consequences. And on the other hand, the good deeds done by a person in his previous lives towards the people, places or things ruled by Mars would result in the positive placement of Mars in the horoscope of that person in his present life and the positive results would be seen in the fields which were closely and positively touched by that person in his previous lives. For example, if a person was very good to his friends in his previous lives and did whatever he could to help them, he is very likely to see a rise in his present life which would come with the help and support of his friends. Such friends are very devoted ones and even face the death that comes towards this person as they are indebted to this person for so many lives.
Mercury : Mercury in general is a signifier of daughter, sister, unborn child, children up to the age of 12 and girls in particular, trade and business, wisdom, speech and memory among other things. Bad Karmas done by a person in his previous lives towards his daughter, sister or cheating in business, deceiving people using the skill of speech are the general causes for a negative placement of Mercury in the present life of the person. The strength of negativity and its field of impact would indicate towards the fields of previous lives where bad Karmas were done. In the same way, good Karmas done by a person towards the significances ruled by Mercury in his previous lives would be a reason for a positive placement of Mercury in the present life where the strength and field of impact indicate the fields where good Karmas were done in the previous lives.
Saturn : The main significances ruled by Saturn include labour class people, routine workers, servants, blind people, baggers, snakes and liquor among other things. Bad Karmas done by a person in his previous lives towards any of the above mentioned people or indulging in excessive drinking which causes trouble for others is a reason for the negative placement of Saturn in the present life. While on the other hand good Karmas done to the people or significances ruled by Saturn in previous lives are the reasons for a positive placement of Saturn in the present life. The strength and fields of impact in the present life indicate the field and strength of Karmas done in the previous lives.
Rahu (North Node) : The main significances ruled by Rahu include the In-Laws, particularly Father in Law and Brother in Law, Birds and particularly Crows, people working as Plumbers, Toilet Cleaners, Sweepers, Garbage collectors and Mentally imbalanced people. Smuggling activities particularly dealing in drugs, Gambling and anything that can fetch you money by making a speculation like lotteries, trading in stock markets, putting bets on horses in a horse race are all the significations ruled by Rahu. Bad Karmas done in the previous lives towards the persons or significances ruled by Rahu are the reasons for a negative placement of Rahu in the present life. And the good Karmas done towards the significances ruled by Rahu are the cause of a positive placement of Rahu in present life which may bless a person with rich to very rich In-Laws who are very supportive, sudden gains of money from lotteries or stock market speculations. The strength and field of impact in the present life indicates the strength and filed of significance ruled by Rahu, touched in previous lives.
Ketu (South Node) : The main significances ruled by Ketu are sons, disciples, orphans and dogs. Ketu is also a signifier of mystic and occult science and extreme successes or extreme failures in profession. Bad Karmas done by a person in his previous life towards the significances ruled by Ketu are the reasons for a negative placement of Ketu in the present life. And the good Karmas done by a person towards the significations ruled by Ketu are the reasons for a positive placement of Ketu in the present life. The strength and filed of impact in the present life is an indicator of the strength and fields signified by Ketu that were touched in the previous lives. A strong positive placement or Ketu can bless a native with extreme success with all around fame while a strong negative placement can be a cause for extreme failures and bad reputations all around including court cases and litigations which keep on bothering the person from time to time. A negative placement is also capable of causing metal agonies, diseases which are very difficult to diagnose and lack of decision making.
The negative or positive placements of the above mentioned planets are seen in a horoscope and accordingly their effects and fields of impact are calculated from a horoscope. The timing of these impacts whether good or bad is also indicated in the horoscope which is used to predict the timing of good or bad events which are going to happen in a person’s life. And the astrological remedies prescribed after analyzing a horoscope for negative planets are the directions given to the person that help him pacify the bad impact of negative planets. For example, a person with a strong negative placement of Saturn is advised to be kind to his servants and labour class people in general, avoid excessive drinking which may cause trouble to the others and the likewise things. Actually these are the things that the person should have been doing in his previous lives but he did not and that is why they are due to be done in his horoscope and the same status will continue in the coming lives also, till the person does them and clears the debts payable to Saturn. And an astrologer just guides the person towards the right direction where the affected person can pay his past life debts belonging to the significances ruled by a particular planet so that the negative effects of the planet may be reduced gradually.
