Jupiter’s (Guru) Transit into Gemini
(An outlook from an individual perspective)

Transit of Planets in the zodiac from one constellation to the other and from one sign to the other is a general phenomenon that keeps occurring at periodical intervals ranging from 2 ¼ days (Moon) to 2 ½ years (Saturn). Apart from Sun (Surya Sankramana); most cognizable among the transits are those of the slow moving planets viz. Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Kethu. Jupiter’s transit is the most sought after one as it bring out marked influence on individuals in Gochaara. Jupiter known as Guru Graha otherwise called Bruhaspathi is the most benevolent and benefic among planets. Considered as Deva Guru (Divine Preceptor) in Hindu philosophy, Jupiter’s blessings (Guru Bala) are very much essential and His transit into certain positions in Gochaara is most awaited for performing of auspicious ceremonies like marriage; upanayanam etc. Even while fixing of muhurthas for auspicious ceremonies it is ensured that Jupiter (Guru) is in proper placement either by presence or by aspect in the muhurtha chart.

Entry into Gemini sign (Mithuna Raasi); into Mrigasira Star Entry into Aarudra Star Entry into Punarvasu Star Entry into Cancer (Karkaataka) sign Combustion of Jupiter (Guru Moudyami/Guru-Astha) Retrogression 31.05.2013 29.06.2013 01.09.2013 19.06.2014 06.06.2013 to 02.07.2013 07.11.2013 to 06.03.2014

Jupiter’s transit (change of sign) in the zodiac generally takes place once in a year and it takes 12 years for Jupiter to complete one round of revolution around the zodiac. This time transit of Jupiter is taking place on 31.05.2013 when Jupiter enters into Gemini (Mithuna raasi) sign in the zodiac in the constellation of Mrigasira. During his sojourn in Gemini sign, Jupiter will be transiting the constellations of Mrigasira, Aarudra and Punarvasu before entering into Cancer (Karkaataka raasi) sign.

During this period of one year Saturn and Rahu continue to remain in Libra while Kethu continue to remain in Aries. As per astrological conventions; Jupiter aspects the 5th, 7th, and 9th houses from his position. Accordingly, Jupiter’s aspect will fall on Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius signs apart from Saturn and Rahu in Libra receiving Jupiter’s aspect. For the purpose of analyzing the planetary transits, a birth chart is reckoned from the Moon sign that is known as Janma Raasi, the house where Moon is placed at the time of birth. Let us try to find out in the coming paragraphs astrological implications of Jupiter’s transit in Gemini from an individual perspective… Conventional method Based on the general astrological conventions Jupiter yield favourable results while transiting 2, 5, 7, 9, 11 houses; rest of the houses (1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12) unfavorable results. Accordingly Jupiter’s transit in Gemini sign is expected to give good results for those whose Moon signs (Janma raasi) are Taurus (Vrushabha); Aquarius (Kumbha); Dhanus (Sagittarius); Libra (Thula) and Leo (Simha). Especially for Vrushabha; Simha and Dhanus raasis’ not only Jupiter will be favourable; Saturn and Rahu are already in a highly favourable position apart from receiving Jupiter’s aspect on them from Gemini sign. For Kanya (2); Thula (1); Vruschika (12) signs who are already undergoing Sade-Sati; for Meena (8) and Karkaataka (4) signs who are undergoing Ashtama and Ardhaashtama Shani; apart from the unfavourable Gochaara of Rahu; Jupiter’s transit into Gemini will give a temporary solace as Saturn and Rahu are going to receive the benevolent aspect of Jupiter. General results enumerated for Transit of Jupiter are… When favourable Monetary profits and gains; fortune; happiness; blessed with progeny (child birth); marriage; dwija praapthi (upanayana sanskaara); good health; success in endeavours; career progression etc. When unfavourable Obstacles and aberrations; ill-health; loss of money; expenses; frequent travel; grief and misery; depression; confusion; dissatisfaction; separation; loss of wealth; unexpected troubles; mental worries and anxieties etc.

Thara-phala (Nakshathra-wise results) Based on stellar occupational method known as Thara-phala or strength of the star in which Jupiter is transiting reckoned from the birth star; results would be as follows…

Moorthy Nirnaya At the time of Jupiter’s transit on 31.05.2013; Moon will be in Aquarius (Kumbha raasi) sign. Based on the sign in which Moon stands at the time of Jupiter’s transit reckoned from one’s radical (natal) Moon sign (Janma raasi), Moorthy Nirnaya for zodiac signs would be as follows…


If Janma Raasi (Moon sign) is Kumbha; Kanya; Mesha Makara; Thula; Mithuna Dhanus; Simha; Vrushabha Vruschika; Karkaataka; Meena

Moorthy Nirnaya Swarna (Gold) Rajatha (Silver) Thamra (Copper) Loha (Iron)

Results Excellent Very good/Good Good/ Average Average/ Adverse

As Swarna Moorthi benefic planets produce excellent results whereas as Loha Moorthi they produce adverse results. Considered from the rule book, 2, 5, 7, 9 and 11 are auspicious houses for transit of Jupiter but, based on Moorthi Nirnaya method divergent results appear for some of the signs. Vedha – Vipareetha Vedha Concept of Vedha (affliction) a point of obstruction is used in astrological studies especially in case of planetary transits. When a planet produces good results from certain positions from the natal Moon, if at the same time, some other planet occupies/transits certain other positions from the natal Moon the good results gets nullified (temporarily suspended) during the period of the transiting planet causing obstruction. This is known as Vedha. Similarly in converse proportion when a planet gives bad results from certain positions from the natal Moon, if at the same time some other planet occupies/transits certain other positions from the natal Moon the bad results get reduced (temporarily suspended) during the period of transiting planet causing obstruction. This is called Vipareetha Vedha. In case of Jupiter’s transit Vedha table for Jupiter’s transit When Jupiter is in Vedha house 2 12 5 4 7 3 9 10 11 8

For example when Jupiter is transiting 2nd house for those whose Moon sign is Taurus (Vrushabha); benefic effects gets temporarily suspended when a planet is in 12th house from Moon sign; in this case Aries (Mesha raasi).


Vipareetha Vedha table for Jupiter’s transit For instance when Jupiter is transiting 8th house from Moon sign, the evil effects gets nullified by the presence/transit of a planet in 7 th house from Moon sign. For Scorpio (Vruschika raasi) sign, Jupiter in 8 th house is not good. If some other planet comes to/transits 7th house from Moon sign, then the evil results would get temporarily suspended. When Jupiter is in Vipareetha Vedha Ashtaka Varga concept Based on the concept of Ashtakavarga, Jupiter’s strength is assessed. When Jupiter transits in a sign with more than 4 points (Bindus) in his own Ashtakavarga Table and with more than 30 points in Sarva-Ashtakavarga table, gives favourable results even if it is transiting an evil house. Similarly when Jupiter is transiting a favourable house but at the same time, number of points (Bindus) obtained in Ashtakavarga and Sarva-Ashtakavarga tables are less than 4 & 30 respectively it will produce un-favourable results. Transit results enumerated above are in general and should not be applied as it is verbatim. They may get modified based on the overall planetary position; strength in the natal chart, placement (strength) of Jupiter in the birth chart in Raasi and Navaamsa; planetary aspects on Jupiter and the transit sign; running Dasa-Bhukti; transit position of other planets like Saturn, Rahu, Kethu etc. One should not draw inferences purely based on transit results. Therefore for a comprehensive estimate of transit results a combined assessment of conventional results with other techniques in vogue as specified above has to be made. Natal positioning of planets represent the intrinsic capability of an individual whereas, the transit positioning shows the influences which are short lived. Though transit results are considered as secondary to the prevailing natal results, yet sometimes they could even modify and change the course of the natal results. Gochaara or planetary transit is not only supplementary to the natal birth chart but also acts as complimentary to it. Transit of Jupiter (Bruhaspathi) that generally occurs once in twelve months has also acquired special significance as it is associated with the celebration of the sacred Pushkara festival. It has become a custom and tradition since

time immemorial to celebrate Pushkara festival of a particular river corresponding to the transit of Jupiter in a particular sign in the zodiac. For example when Jupiter enters into Mesha Raasi which is the first sign in the zodiac it is celebration of Ganga Pushkara. Incidentally Jupiter’s transit into Gemini (Mithuna raasi) sign marks beginning of the holy river Saraswati Pushkara.
