Persons whom these
Planets Represent in Daily Life
Now, if we take
the normal day to day, mundane affairs, these very
planets represent the following worldly
The king of the
solar system, is the king always and everywhere. The
level of regal splendour he shows will depend on his
condition in a horoscope.
– The father in a family and paternal
relations, the Sun is also a dignified administrative
– The King
in a monarchy, the Sun is the dignitary in modern
democracies and represents highly placed persons whether
in government service or private firms.
Like the Sun, the
other planet representing royalty is the
– Represents the mother and everything
connected with mother.
– The wise men (Dwija) of the society,
popular person and in democracies, the Moon aspected by
Saturn represents the charisma some personalities
Mars is the
natural commander-in-chief in
– Brothers, sisters.
– Some astrologers following the Bhrigu
system of Hindu astrology give to Mars the role of a
woman in a man’s life. While many astrologers do not
accept this, there is strong enough reason to go deeper
into this aspect as some of my researches prove this to
be very valid.
Mars gives an important
marital point which pertains to marriage which is why in
Hindu astrology so much stress is laid on Mangalya
(happiness of a marriage) and also Kujadosha (Kuja is a
synonym for Mars). In social life, Mars represents the
army, the police and men in uniform, administrators, men
in high position, rulership, estate agents
Mercury is the prince.
– Cousins, maternal uncles.
Uttar-Kalamrita, Kalidas attributes to Mercury some other
special significations: maternal grand-father, and
younger coborns and or brothers and sisters.
– In a woman’s life Mercury represents,
if afflicted by Saturn a husband with less or no sexual
– Mercury represents knowledge and in
modern life, business. So this planet has many great
significations of very wide variety. Mathematicians,
sculptors, astrologers, astronomers, scholars, speakers,
writers, men who know the secrets of mantras and yantras.
In modern age, Mercury is the financial expert,
accountant, auditor, journalist, newspaper man, paper
Notable – The association of Mercury with certain
planets in some rashis from the lagna is the clue to finding it
out. Lot of new researches will have to be done in this
Jupiter who is
given the honored place of being the guru of gods,
represents, the divine, the sacred.
– Children, elder brother, respected
elders in the family (whose intervention and advice helps
solve family problems)
Uttar Kalamrita, the other significations given to
Jupiter are grandsons and also grand-father.
Bhrigu astrology, Jupiter is said to represent the
husband of a woman just as Mars is said to represent the
wife of a man.
– Traditionally, the priest, the scholar,
the adviser to the king (in ancient times), Jupiter
represents many new modern professionals.
– The judge, the teacher, the lawyer, the
adviser in new modern forms become legal experts, the
management experts, the psychologists, the bankers
traditionally the guru of asuras (monsters), is described
as the lord of sixty-four arts, meaning that Venus
represents, culture and sophistication.
– Represents the sex-life of married
partners in a tradition-bound society
otherwise, the sex-life of an individual. Generally Venus
has been treated as wife. For those born after sun-rise Venus is
said to take the place of Moon and becomes the
Notable – Generally
Venus represents family prosperity, conveyances, jewellery, and
Society – Venus
being representative of arts, all form of arts, fine or
commercial, dance, song, drama, literature, poetry being its
sole domain, dramatists, poets, dancers etc. are Venus-dominant
Notable – In
modern context, the perfumers, hoteliers, owners of restaurant,
computer-software men and even those who deal with flesh-trade
fall under the vast Venusian umbrella.
Hindu astrologers are mostly
superstitious in their understanding and treatment of the
significations of Saturn. True, Saturn represents, trouble,
sorrow, old age, sickness. Yet in all the great classics of
Hindu astrology Saturn has been given some other beneficent
roles which are overlooked. My best research given in my books
emphasise the positive side of Saturn with many
Family – Old
men and servants in the family. Old, dilapidated houses
specially made of bricks. For those born at night Saturn
represents father, taking the place of the Sun, the natural
significator of father.
Society – If
the Sun is the aristocrat, Saturn is the democrat while Mars is
the dictator. These hints help us in making predictions about
the type of government a nation will have at a given point of
time. Lower classes, democrats, crippled persons, old men, are
represented by Saturn in traditional astrology.
In the changed socio-economic times of
ours, Saturn is the seeker of powers through elections to
democratic bodies, iron-smiths and also industrialists (in
cooperation with Mars), a psychologist in cooperation with
Jupiter, an artist in cooperation with Venus, a sculptor in
co-operation with Mercury etc.
Notable – Astrologers
who fail to seek the very wide and sweeping range of all new
professions created by Saturn will fall into thousands of
errors of judgments.
Next to Saturn the most condemned
planet is Rahu. Unless astrologers do new researches and see
the positive side of these planets, more damage will be done to
astrology than has already been done so far.
Family – Paternal
grand-parents (though Uttar Kalamrita also uses Rahu for
maternal grand-parents), old, sick person in the family and
those that become non-conformist's.
Society – The
foreigner, the engineer, the architect, the space engineer, the
politician, air hostesses, aeroplane pilots and manifold new
technical and semi-technical professions fall in the domain of
Ketu is the most baffling planet in
astrology, spiritual, divine on the one hand and baffling in a
Family – Represents
maternal grand-parents (though Uttara Kalamrita takes paternal
grand-parents), the slightly unorthodox members of the
Society – Ketu is the
planet which plays key role in shaping a doctor or other men in
semi-medical or alternative systems of medicine. Ketu, combined
with other planets, produces inventors, men dealing with subtle
secrets of nature around our world.
Notable – Some hints
have been given here about the persons represented by different
planets some of them are traditional and some of them are
additional. For instance Ketu represents languages and
linguists. These days when people learn computer it naturally
falls under Ketu because there is computer language to be
If planets combine, aspect each other in certain
houses from the lagna, the meaning of this should be
interpreted with an open mind. The classical principle should
never be overlooked and the new meaning must be discovered
otherwise astrological research will remain
