Vedic Astrology: Finding Career and Wealth in Your Chart
2008 James Jarvis, M.A.
Vedic astrology offers a unique perspective for discovering career and
indicators of wealth in your chart. For career or right livelihood
considerations we start by looking at the ruling planet of the 10th
house and planets located in the 10th. For example, I have
Pisces on the 10th house cusp with the ruling planet
Jupiter, in the 10th house. Jupiter represents the advisor,
coach, counselor and spiritual teacher – all of the things that I do in
my work with others.
second house ruler is also important as it represents the skills and
abilities you use in your career. Again, I have the moon (Cancer)
ruling the 2nd house (speech) with the Sun (Leo) ruling the
third house of writing. So it is totally natural for me to make my
living through public speaking and writing as well.
Another unique contribution of Vedic Astrology is the use of yogas
(union of two planets) to look at wealth specifically. A wealth
producing yoga (Dhana Yoga) is formed when two planets ruling houses
1,2,5,9 or 11 come into aspect with each other. This aspect could be
the conjunction (same sign), opposition (180 degrees apart) or other
When I started studying yogas in my chart I discovered a dhana yoga
between Mars and Saturn. Normally Mars and Saturn are seen as negative
influences but in this case they produce positive results. Saturn rules
the auspicious 9th house in my chart and resides in the 4th
house of home. Mars rules the 11th house of gain and resides
in the first house. What have I done in my life that has produced the
most wealth? Buying and remodeling houses and developing property!
my western chart, Mars and Saturn form a minor aspect but the real
power of the two together is shown in my Vedic chart. Most important,
though, is the timing for the fructification of the yoga. Looking at
your current planetary periods (see my article:
Keys to Forecasting and
Astrology's Major Planetary Periods) can tell you when the yoga will
become most active and productive.
Vedic Astrology offers a vast array of techniques that are not found in
Western Astrology. It’s not that Vedic Astrology is a better system,
per se, it just offers tools to zoom in on specific areas of
experience. A deep understanding of your chart from both Vedic and
Western Astrology offers increased insight and understanding of where
you’ve come from and where you are potentially going!
