Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theory
The Planet of Prosperity
In trying to write this blog, I have stopped and started many times. I’ve been trying to find balance for those that have no knowledge of VPAT(Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories), as well as stimuli of planetary constellations, has been difficult. Though the information which I am about to bring to you may seem a bit confusing, I will do my best to make it simple for those that know nothing about planetary constellations, and perhaps bring new visions for those more advanced in the philosophies that have been practiced for years yet never revealed until now.
This entire blog is with the permission of my Guru, who encourages sharing knowledge and wisdom of the ancient teachings. Additionally, knowledge should not cost anything; rather, it is a privilege to share this so that humanity can understand we are all as “one.”
I have been meaning to write about one of the most beautiful, auspicious planets, Jupiter, for a while now. However, I did not want to discredit any western or Vedic theories as I highly respect both methodologies. What I am about to write is from Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories (VPAT) and not a representation of Western nor a Vedic astrology. This is only a prospective and point of view; it is not set in stone to specific individuals, nor is it specific to any particular person’s life.
In the VPAT, every planet is not just a planet but a God, aka Lord. This is because VPAT states that anything that has control over human action/reaction or outcome has special powers and should be respected as such. Not only is Jupiter the largest planet in our solar system, it is also the 9th house planetary in focus of Astrology or Vedic Philosophies. The 9th house is one of most significant and spiritually driven in the theoretical prospective.
Many people understand that Hinduism is driven by the concept of Dharma, Karma, and past life issues, and believe in the concept that we must live the humble life today, as well as prepare to be better for the afterlife. Those that have had a Dharma reading from me know that I am a firm believer in Dharma and the aspect of Dharma is the 9th house. This is where Jupiter sits and it represents virtue or integrity.
However, the philosophies and meaning of Jupiter is lost in the definition and not respected as unique phenomenon. Not to confuse the meaning any further in this article, depending on what ideology one follows, Jupiter by western astrology may derive from Greek or Roman mythology. In the Vedic philosophies and astrology, planet Jupiter is considered a God and has been called Deviguru, Guru Angras, etc.
Jupiter in Tropical (Western) astrology is the most predominant and influential planet next to Mercury and Venus. Hence, unlike Sidereal (Vedic) astrology and philosophies, base their religion and culture around planetary stimuli, and believe that the Devine controls the fate of humanity through the constellations. Nevertheless, some of the common themes between the two are that both Vedic philosophies and astrology really feel that if Jupiter’s place in a person’s Janma Kundali (birth chart) is in Sagittarius or Pisces, it is always favorable. They also agree that Jupiter is not always positive for many and it depends upon other aspects of a person’s life.
Now that we have moved past the technical and historical aspects of Jupiter, there are still many questions that are unanswered. In mundane terms, VPAT considers that no matter what is happening in one’s life, anything and everything can be averted. To elude or reduce the intensity of the energy or rather chaos (VPAT states humanity cannot embrace Chaos as a learning period but rather creates chaos to make it worse), VPAT teachings are that we must first understand the 4 W’s and one H.
Before we are able to completely understand the concept of Jupiter and its effects on Humanity, there is one more common dominator that Western and Vedic philosophies have in common. This is that Jupiter is in everyone’s chart; there is not a single person that will not have this. Because Vedic philosophies believe in the concept of rebirth, it is understood that no one can complete there Karma in one life.
Because Karma is everyone’s life, Jupiter also rules over the sun and the moon. Jupiter is what makes, or rather molds, us as it is a beneficial planet. Our thoughts and how we conduct ourselves through the lessons of life is what Jupiter rules. Thoughts: philosophies, religions, spirituality, and how we see ourselves in these aspects. Conduct: how we conduct ourselves when we have recognition, achievement, principle, prosperity, children, marriage, and relationships to others will bring the good or bad in those areas depending upon the conduct. At this time, I will not expand on what triggers those conducts as this would be in the methodology that a Pandit, Joythi, or Astrologer specializes.
VPAT does not concern itself on what causes conduct, rather, what we can do to avoid the conduct. Jupiter, of all the planets except for Venus, Ketu & Rahu (which won’t be explained in this article), is most prevalent to females, or female energy, as it determines the relationships she will have with her partner. As Jupiter is considered a male counterpart, almost like a father figure, teaches humanity to be truthful, humble, work hard, and calm your temper. But most of all, to make wise decisions across the board. Concluding that Jupiter presides over everyone as to whom does it affect. Just like any planet, it affects all humanity.
Jupiter is a teacher, teaching certain people the value of resources, family, interpersonal relationships, spirituality, customs, honor, and how our outside influences affect our tolerance. For example, Jupiter rules over diabetes and cholesterol. As they say, too much of a good thing can kill you. Who does not like sweets? Everyone has an itch for ice cream every now and then, but too much can cause problems. Those who do well with Jupiter are fire and water signs. Others can also do well, but these folks not only have learned a lot, it has been told they are a little bit closer and have the ability to understand and adapt well to changes.
What does it affect?
As Jupiter is considered a teacher it is also considered a planet of luck. It will create a mixture of complex issues in one’s life; it could be personal which gravitates into professional as both professional and personal are intertwined. Depending upon the placement of Jupiter in a persons VPAT chart it can have the most positive influence if it is strong; however, everyone benefits once in a while. A robust Jupiter will impact understanding of conviction, universal growth, and prosperity. However, that prosperity does not have to materialistic, it can be of the heart. It can also affect other parts of the material world depending upon the negative or positive placement.
Where does Jupiter affect in a person chart:
If the placement of Jupiter is in your 2nd house it usually brings prosperity and understanding in a deeper sense. The placement is as important as the number of years Jupiter returns in one’s life. As Jupiter is considered “Guru” – the teacher, it comes around to teach new ways of maturity and abundance, or the opposite. What it teaches depends upon the virtue of the person’s chart as well as their humility within their world. It is advisable to seek an astrologer that best suits your needs when trying to find out how it will affect you personally.
When does Jupiter effect people
Jupiter, as stated earlier, is a natural remedial factor in Sagittarius and Pisces life. However, Jupiter under VPAT theology, takes 12 years to come back to the same circle. As I write this article, the current placement of Jupiter (according to VPAT) is in Libra for another 18 months and there will be a 6-month cooling period. Not only will Libra’s benefit, but also those that are Cancers, as Jupiter loves to bless Cancers. However, it may not have good affects for those that are Capricorns as their nature causes Jupiter to get frustrated easily. No matter which sign Jupiter is in, it always effects nearly everyone. The positives and negatives depend upon the placement of Jupiter in your VPAT chart.
The first Jupiter usually comes into one’s life during their first puberty cycle (10-15 yrs. of age) this is when one fights or learns gradually into maturity. Of course, every 12 years it comes to test and see how much the individual has learned and how many seeds have been planted for the good of all.
How does Jupiter sync?
Sometimes people do not feel Jupiter at work and it can seem very hard at times. Things just slip out of one’s hands. What one may have thought to be sustainable and what will always remain forever changes before our eyes. Whatever seems old and outdated, serves no purpose, or has ran its course, vanishes or we simply lose interest. The more we hold on to it the more difficult things may be. These can be considered as purging moments. At the end of it we may feel lighter and seem optimistic with our hard work paying off.
Jupiter brings everything new: cycles, work, relationship, money, and even including a new place to live or play. Jupiter creates different outcomes not only for society but individuals, depending upon its placement.
Whenever Jupiter is in a specific sign it takes over the characteristics of that sign. However, other placements do have an impact on the negative and positive impacts. For example, if Jupiter is in a fire sign (Leo, Aries or Sagittarius), the impact will make people take a management or authoritative role, expansions of new ideas (look back at Summer 2014 until almost fall of 2015).
In the same aspect, if it is placed in Earth sign (Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo), it would focus on constancy, correction, and curing (Look back at fall of 2015 to fall of 2017).
Thus, in Air Sign (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius) which is going on right now, this could mean that many of the things which transpire will be focused around revolution of society or persons, kindness towards people and society, valor, and communication which could comprise of how and whom we affect.
Lastly, when it moves into water signs (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) this would be considered the most spiritual time with creativity and psychic phenomenon.
As I write this blog we have just entered Jupiter in Libra according to VPAT; however, western ideology would consider it being in Scorpio. Either way, my predictions in 2018 will continue to focus primarily on the communication and compassion of humanity as revolution is almost here and innovation will change the world as we see it.
By the time 2020 is here it will be time for spirituality and healing. Perhaps the leader of one of the strongest country’s would be a water sign (Cancer) . Or History could repeat itself by having a fire sign president that is charismatic and care about his/her people such as a Leo?
Perhaps the destiny is in the stars – what will come of it depends upon how we plant our seeds for our children and their children.
