Our astrology chart is a map of our “karma”. Karma basically means “action”. When we talk about “our karma” we talk about the actions we have “performed in the past including our past lives. These karmas are main cause of our current life situation. This turn out to be our karmic burden or our karmic blessing depending on whether we have performed positive or negative actions in the past. These Karmic burdens and karmic blessings manifest in the form of arishtha yoga and beniflc yogas in our horoscopes.
These benefic and malefic yogas in horoscope play an important role in the success and growth of an individual. As we know that Intelligence and hard work are most important ingredients for success. But in our everyday life we see that there are hundreds of people who are intelligent and hard working still they are lagging behind and there are other people who get success easily. What is the reason behind this? No other science except astrology can answer this question. As an astrologer I believe that hard work and intelligence alone are not enough for success.
A native gets desired results of his hard work only when his destiny favours him. Thus we can make a simple airthmatic formula for success. And that is- Success= Favorable fortune+ hard work +intelligence I went through various Vedic astrology classical texts to find out astrological combinations for name, fame, money and success and I ended up with hundreds of hundreds classical principals. It was very difficult to list all them out here so I shifted my focus to study the horoscopes of four notable business magnets by applying the parameters based on classical astrological principles.
Business magnets are the persons who are world renowned, have achieved prominent position in the field of industry and who have amassed huge amount of money and fortune during the process of running their business. So let us see how destiny favored these business magnets by analyzing the map of their karma or their horoscope. Names of the business magnets are - Bill Gates- American business magnet and chairman of Micorsoft Company. He is consistently ranked among world’s wealthiest people. And was wealthiest overall from 1995 to 2009.
He is one of the best known entrepreneurs in the personal computer revolution. His Family was upper middle class. John D Rockefeller- ( July 8 1838 to May 23 1937) He was German American oil business magnet. Founder of Standard Oil Company. He became the world’s richest person and first American worth more than a billion dollar. Adjusted to inflation he is often regarded the richest person in the history. His first job was assistant book keeper. Andrew Carnegie (Nov 25 1835 to Aug. 11, 1919) Scottish American industrialist and entrepreneur who led the enormous expansion of American steel industry in the late 19th century.
Built Pitts burg’s Carnegie Steel Company. His first job was in US as a factory worker. He is often regarded as the second richest man in the history after John D Rockefeller. Dhiru Bhai Ambani. ( 28 Dec 1930 to 6th July 2000) Indian business magnet and entrepreneur who founded Reliance Industries. He took his company public in 1984 and introduced the stock market to the average investor.
He started off as a small time worker with Arab Merchants. There is one thing which is common in the life of all these business magnets and that is they all are self made. They have risen from poverty to wealth as well as from obscurity to fame. There is no doubt that they have achieved this position due to their hard work, entrepreneurship and intelligent planning. But as an astrologer we can say that destiny also favored them for success and money. So let us see how destiny favored these business magnets by analyzing their horoscope. Parameters
1. There is a simple classical principal that the Rashis or houses which are aspected or associated by their lord or Karaka gets strengthened.
2. There is another simple classical principal that planets in exaltation, mool trikon, own house, friend’s house or posited with their depositor are strong.
3. Strong Lagna and Lagna Lord gives name, fame power position.
4. Paksha bali Moon is good for success.
5. An astrologer can judge the luck of the person by judging First house (name fame), second house (accumulated wealth), third house (entrepreneurship, initiative and hard work), fifth house (intelligence and planning), ninth house (luck and fortune) and eleventh house (gain of wealth).
If these all houses are in strength we can predict that the person is lucky. 6. Effect of Sun, Moon, Mars and Rahu (poorna parmatma planets) on the first, fifth third or ninth house. Each planet represents one amsnaavatara of lord Vishnu. The amshaavtara represented by these planets have greatest proportion of Parramatta amsa. So the strength of these planets in the horoscooe and their association with 1, 3, 5, or 9th house or their lords indicates god’s blessing, karmic blessing or favourable fortune.
7. When most of the planets are posited in the brighter half of the horoscope i.e. from seventh house to lagna or from the third house to tenth house. Such persons are more prone to get success, name and fame. Planets from seventh house to lagna means planets are around tenth house which is the house of karma and planets from third to tenth house means planets are around the lagna the house of name, fame, personality and intelligence. When planets are in strength and posited around lagna or tenth house naturally their significations will have greater impact on the personality or karma of the native.
8. Planets in strength in vimshopak bala and Vishaikamsha give very good results.
9. Normally planets in the 1 (Kuber), 4 (kirit), 7 (mohan), 10 (indra), dwadasamsha give prosperity and growth.
10. Indu Lagna and its lord should be in strength for financial gains and success.
