Transit & vedha

Transit of Guru in Kataka

Guru transits in kataka, his exaltation sign from 20th June 2014 till 14.07.2015. Guru is favorable in 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th from chandra rasi and this will go under the name, guru bala.  However, there should not be any planets in vedha points namely,  12th, 4th, 3rd, 10th and 8th respectively from chandra. Similarly, if you have guru in 12th and another planet in 2nd from rasi, the evil effects of guru are nullified. These elements will be considered in monthly predictions. In the Indian foundation chart, this is transit over chandra rasi. Though this is not gurubala, transit in his exaltation position imbibes high religious and moral values in the government and the populace. And also there will be some increase in prestige and dignity for the country. In the foundation chart, you will find that many planets - chandra, budha, shani shukra and ravi are in the 3rd house.  This has always trigged love and hate relationship with neighbors.  During the transit of guru over these these planets various relationship issues will crop up. Due to religious renaissance (not only among the Hindus but also among other religions), the people of the country rediscover their roots. Excavations at Hastinapur, Ayodhya and Mathura or any such sites will throw new light.  There may be new serials on TV and movies, religious discourses that inculcate religious interest will be on rise. Rationalist people like 'You Are A murthy' and  and professors  take a back seat. It is true that some vested interests will take rudder and mislead.  People have more of faith and less analytical ability. There will be more money at the hands of the public, there are more good hobbies. More universities are formed and Indian students will be in greater demand worldwide. The gap between lower casts and upper casts will come narrow. As the people of the nation are well fed (or more than well fed), the related health problems like diabetes will be on rise. The households are fond of gold and they acquire more and more, hence gold value will go up, no matter how much production increases. New ways of treatment of neurological, cardiac and blood disorders are possible. 

Here comes the small print: I am a common astrologer - like so many MBBS doctors you find on either side of the road! My expertise is in individual birth charts and not in the charts of dogs, cats, bridges or mundane affairs of nations.  I should plead my innocence - I have not studied thousands and thousands of national charts, though I have collection of very old events world wide, which I consult for fun at times. Further, there is very little a common man like you and me, can do in national and international events. We helplessly watch, innocent children die in Palestine, the rebel fight in DR Congo but can not comprehend who is right or wrong! Coming to individual predictions, you are more concerned and there is always room for improvisations. Yes, I have studied thousands of natal charts since ages.  

Guru is retrograde from 09.12.2014 to 08.04.2015. During retrogression, there will not be any good results, but it would not cause adverse results. it is just like stay order off the court of law. The same can not be said about combustion. During combustion guru looses strength and his benefic results The results are burnt away and if he is in adverse positions, he becomes even more malefic. It also depends on the functional role of ravi in the natal chart. If ravi is the 8th lord or 6th lord, then the benefic results of ravi are lost due to severe problems and ill health, while this may bring good influence in the office if ravi is the 10th lord in natal chart. Murti nirnaya and other such methods do not produce consistent and reliable results, in my humble experience and hence these are not considered here. The transit of guru in kataka increases religious mentality. 

The results described here are from rasi - the place occupied in chandra (moon) at the time of birth, in the chart made in nirayana method. This is independent of your month and day of birth in Gregorian calendar.  I do not apply the results described in ancient texts verbatim without verification. For instance, the transit effect of guru in the 4th from rasi brings the following results as per classics: "He is falsely implicated, suffers humiliations, has domestic problems, suffers loss of wealth etc.," If you read the predictions for vrischika in the following paragraphs, you will find that I painted a totally different picture! Similarly for the other transits also, I have deviated from the classical works wherever I find them unsatisfactory. I like my father's garden, it is very beautiful and ancient. But I do not like some weed grown here and there, I throw them out. This does not diminish my respect and love towards my father. My methods are developed since many many years involving extensive hard work - done manually in the days when computers and calculators were unheard of!

Vedha & vipareeta Vedha for guru 2 5 7 9 11
12 4 3 10 8

During this transit Guru is favorable for mithuna, meena, makara, vrischika and kanya rasis. It is the worst transit for for dhanur rasi and  kumbha rasi people, as guru transits in 8th and 6th respectively. Though guru's transit over chandra rasi, 3rd, 4th, 10th and 12th is unfavorable (for the remaining rasis), it is not as bad compared to dhanur and kumbha rasi people. The people born in dhanur and kumbha rasis MUST take up remedial measures like shanti for guru and recitation of guru beeja mantra. There are certain counter balancing transits that check the power of guru to do good (or bad), called vedha.  The vedha transits are considered in monthly forecast for the respective rasis.

Guru Shanti is the procedure of recitation of guru beeja mantra or gayatri mantra or namaskara mantra (some call it veda mantra) 16000+ times. The priests in temples are aware of this.  Only people of dhanur and kumbha rasis need to do shanti and not all. The persons born in mithuna, meena, makara, vrischika and kanya rasis need not have to do any remedial measures at all. The persons born in mesha, vrishabha, kataka, simha and tula need not have to do any shanti but they should do pooja or recitation of certain mantras by themselves. It is better for dhanur and kumbha rasi people to do pooja for guru and/or recite certain mantras.

This site offers various mantras that can be used as remedial measures, in Kannada, Hindi (Devanagari), Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali, Punjabi, Gujarati, Oriya and English. With considerable efforts, I have showcased them for public use. These are guru namaskara mantra, guru peedahara mantra, guru gayatri mantra, guru beeja mantra, kavacha, guru mantra, guru stotra, guru avahana mantra, guru asttottara shatanamavali and guru asttotttara shatanama stotra.  Not only for guru, the site contains similar mantras for other planets too. More

Guru namaskara mantra, guru peedahara mantra can be recited any time and any where and they do not require specific dress etc.,

Guru gayatri mantra, guru beeja mantra should be recited in special dress, early in the morning after bath in empty stomach. Minimum recitation may be 18 times but should not exceed 10,000 times a day. Compared to gayatri mantra, the beeja mantra is more powerful but ensure you would not go wrong in pronunciation. Only people of dhanur and kumbha rasis need to recite gayatri or beeja mantra.

Guru avahana mantra is used to invoke Guru into a picture, kalasha or yantra for doing pooja. That is to say, you should keep a picture, yantra or kalasha (copper vessel filled with water/rice or any grain on which coconut is placed) and do pooja.  Those people who are accustomed to do pooja procedure will find it easy.  Guru asttottara shatanamavali is used to do floral pooja after abhisekha.

Guru mantra, Guru stora, Guru kavacha and Guru asttotttara shatanama stotra are for recitation once. These mantras are at par with each other. Out of these Guru kavacha and Guru asttotttara shatanama stotra are easy to recite.

Those who do not relish orthodox religious ways or idolatry should take up service of elements that represent Guru like feeding cows, helping orphans, reading regularly (parayana) of any religious texts like Psalms, Bhagawad geeta, Grantha Saheba, Quran or any biography of a great person you like. It is always better to visit Temples, Churches or Mosques etc., for people born in mesha, vrishabha, kataka, simha and tula rasis.  People born in dhanur rasi and kumbha rasi MUST visit such holly places regularly (say once a week) and also spend some time offering their manual service in temples. It is mandatory for them. People of other signs may also visit temples, surely God will not throw them out! The benefic role played by Guru will increase even more in such people.
