Carlos Castaneda – Mercury in Jyeshta

“We are men and our lot in this life is to learn and to be hurled into inconceivable new worlds.” “Man goes to knowledge as he goes to war, wide awake, with fear, with respect, and with absolute assurance.” “ I would say that the best of us  always comes out when we are against  the wall and we feel the sword dangling over our head.” “Nothing can temper the spirit of the warrior as much as the challenge of dealing with impossible people in positions of power. Only under those conditions can warriors acquire the sobriety and serenity to withstand the pressure of the unknowable.” “A warrior takes his lot, whatever it may be, and accepts it in the ultimate humbleness. He accepts humbleness as what he is, not as a grounds of regret but as a living challenge.” “The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.” “To seek the perfection of the warrior’s spirt in the only task worthy of our temporariness, our manhood.” “The hardest thing in the world is for a warrior to let others be.” — Carlos Castaneda

“Some words when spoken, can’t be taken back.” “The smallest oceans still make big waves.” — Eddie Vedder

“We need poets to change the world.”Justin Trudeau

“I’ve learned. Every organisation needs somebody standin’ out front. Call it a figure head , a leader, a headman, a kingpin, a president, whatever. It doesn’t much matter to me who does it.” — Lucky Luciano

“Any film about heroism: the triumph of good over evil. If you look back at my films , you will see that as a reoccurring theme.”“Cinema should always be in touch with the soul of the country. My film celebrate the heartland of India.” — Salman Khan

They make good lawyers, communication management specialist, journalists, speakers or preachers, story tellers, songwriters. Mercury can be a little immature and deceptive, using words and ideas to stir up trouble. Like Ted Turner, the media mogul who started CNN and things like the cartoon channel said: “I wanted to better inform the world.” Turner has his ascendant and Mercury in Jyeshta conjunct Sun & Venus in Scorpio so he had a very powerful quest involving media, journalism, communications and these kinda of things. He also said: “I didn’t care how much adversity life threw at me. I intended to get to the top.” This is the spirit of Jyeshta, the Mars energy is supported by the Indra energy. But with powerful mercury in his own nakshatra this quest is brought into Mercuries sphere of activity. And we need not forget that Mars and Mercury are both war planets. Mercury is the natural ruler of Virgo and the 6th house and Mars is the natural warrior so we can easily make for information warfare. We find another quote by Ted Turner to be relevant on this topic: “War has been good to me from a financial standpoint but I don’t want to make money that way. I don’t want blood money.”

Martin Luther, with Mercury in Jyeshta conjunct Sun in Scorpio, warned us about information warfare back in the 15th century when he commented on the public school system. “I’m afraid that the school will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labour in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.” People with Mercury in Jyeshta also make good preachers and speakers capable of drumming up a lot of passion. Especially,, as Martin Luther point out: “When I’m angry I can pray well and preach well.” Or “Grant that I may not pray alone with the mouth, help me that I may pray from the depths of my heart.”

In so far as Jyeshta seeks prestige, Carlos Castaneda tells us that “Power rests on the kind of knowledge one holds. What is the sense of knowing things that are useless.” Ted Turner also commented on prestige in the news business when he said, “If you had the most prestige and you were the network that everybody turned to in a crisis, that that was the most important position in the news business, to hold.” And of course the path to prestige is to do what everyone tells you that you can’t do. Ted turner again reminds us that “All [his] life people have said that [he] wasn’t going to make it.” He goes on to tell us how a Mercury in Jyeshta overcomes and makes it to the top; first he says: “There’s no point sitting around crying about spilt milk. Gotta move on.” And then: “I’ve never run into a guy who could win at the top level in anything today and didn’t have the right attitude, didn’t give it everything he had, at least while he was doing it; wasn’t prepared and didn’t have the whole program worked out.” Howard Hughs also talked about the nay sayers: “Do the impossible because almost everyone has told me my ideas are merely fantasies.”

Any placement in Jyeshta will be infused with a lot of pride and a bit of conceit: “If I only had a little humility, I would be perfect” (Ted Turner). “I am by nature a perfectionist, and I seem to have trouble allowing anything to go through in a half-perfect condition. So if I make any mistake it was in working too hard and in doing too much of it with my own hands” (Howard Hughes). “I have to play everything just perfectly. I can’t take less of myself. I’m strong. I’m prepared” (Gordon Lightfoot). 

And it may be the immaturity of Mercury in Jyeshta that comes up with statements like LGBTQ activist , Hunter Schafer’s claim that, “We are on the forefront of a revolution and expression will take priority over the labels assigned to us at birth, in which self-identification will take priority over perception, in which gender will fall away entirely.” And Neil Young who recently sacrificed himself on his crusade against Joe Rogan on Spotify, once said, “I don’t like to be labeled, to be anything. I’ve made the mistake before myself of labelling my music, but it’s counter productive.”

Like Ann Coulter, they like to wade into controversy, say the things no one else will say, or even rush to be the first person to say what everyone sees but is not talking about. She point out that: “I am the illegal alien of commentary. I will do the jokes that no one else will do.” And: “A word to those of you out there who have yet to be offended by something I have said: Please be patient. I’m working as fast as I can.” And of course they like to win the argument even if it means fighting a weaker opponent. Jyeshta often has to watch that they don’t become bullies; in the case of Mercury in Jyeshta they can bully people with their words, ideas, logic, media. Ann Coulter puts it right out there when she admits: “I love to engage in repartee with people who are stupider than I am.” 

There is also a chance they come off as preachy, because, like other nakshatra placements, Mercury in Jyeshta knows better than everyone else. Hunter Schafer, with no small amount of pride (pun intended) said about her work that, “No matter what I’ve worked on or what art practices I’ve delved into, they’ve always been an attempt to world-build.” And Neil Young should probably look back on this quote, cause he has been sounding a little preachy lately:“I have so many opinions about everything it just comes out during my music. It’s a battle for me. I try not to be preachy. Thats the real danger.” Neil Young might want to take advice from Eddie Vedder about how to properly defeat ones enemy: “You kill yourself and you make a big old sacrifice and try to get your revenge. That all you’re gonna end up with is a paragraph in a newspaper. In the end, it does nothing. Nothing changes. The world goes on and you’re gone. The best revenge is to live on and prove yourself.” 

Schafer and Young seem to be following Howard Hughs business strategy: “Play off everyone against each other so that you have more avenues of action open to you.” But even Lucky Luciano was smarter than that. He once gave a lesson to the boys with a little story which kinda reminds us that Jyeshta can also have a bit of a revolving door: “Don’t worry, Joe. Maybe you know it was gonna happen to me, maybe you didn’t. But by the old way of doing things… If I became boss right now. I’d have to hit you in case you knew. And all of you shrug, except some of you are friends of Joe’s. And one day I might do something that upsets you, so then you’ll hit me. And the YOU”LL become boss. My friends will hate you for that. Then somebody else becomes boss, and so  on, and on… You know what I call that? Stupid. Very stupid… We’re all boss here.” 

Carlos Castaneda has many wise words of the Jyeshta native. We also find a strong current of mysticism and shamanism in his writing. About success he says: “If one must succeed in anything the success must come gently, with a great deal of effort but with no stress of obsession.” The kind of effort we need to make is highlighted by Canadian singer song writer Gordon lightfoot who said, “Every time you wanted to do something, you’d hope it would score. You’d keep trying and trying and all of a sudden , something would come out of left field , like “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” No one hand any idea about that one.” Howard Hughes probably takes it too far when he said, “Passion will make you crazy; but is there any other way to live.” He was one of the richest men in the world, so who am I to contradict him. You don’t get that rich without being a bit of a jerk: “We don’t have a monopoly. Anyone who wants to dig a well without a Hughes bit can always use a pick and shovel.”

Swami Satchidananda Saraswati also makes reference to digging, diving and drilling of this Scorpio placement: “There is no value in digging shadow wells in 100 places. Decide on on e place and dig deep. Even if you encounter rock, use dynamite and keep going down. If you leave that to dig another well, all the first effort is wasted and there is no proof you won’t hit rock again.” And communing again on what lies deep and what arises from the depths Swami Satchidananda also said, “Yoga says instinct is a trace of an old experience that has been repeated many times and the impressions have sunk down to the bottom of the mental lake. Although they go down, they aren’t completely erased. Don’t think you ever forget anything. All experience are stored in the Chittam; and, when the proper atmosphere is created, they come to the surface again. When we do something several times it forms a habit. Continue with that habit for a long time and it becomes your character. Continue with your character and eventually, perhaps in another life, it comes up as instinct.”

Aside from the difficulty and struggles to reach the top, Mercury in Jyeshta people face similar problems in relationships as many other Jyeshta placements as their passion is for media and communication rather than relationships. Swami Satchidananda Saraswati, with Mercury in Jyeshta, tells that “At various points in our lives, or on our quest, and for reasons that often remain obscure, we are driven to make decisions which prove, with hindsight, to be loaded with meaning.” These discussions are inspired and don’t usually involve the partners, which of course can build resentment. Eddie Vedder tells us about the truest “love,” which is impossible love.  “It’s a song abut first relationships and letting go. It’s very rare for a relationship to withstand the earths gravitational pull and where it’s going to take people and how they’re going to grow. I’ve heard it said that you can’t really have a true love unless it was a love unrequited. It’s a harsh one, because then your truest one is the one you can’t have forever.” Lucky Luciano is blunt when he said, “I don’t have a wife because emotion is dangerous.”

Speech can also be a kind of defence mechanism causing them to talk too much or ramble as a way of trying to control or dominate a conversation. Like other Jyeshta placements they can be control freaks. They are not particularly diplomatic in the their communication style, usually blunt. And due to their habit of charging into a conversation, and perhaps is contrast to their perfectionism they do make mistake. They are intelligent with an intense communication style but sometimes cloudy thoughts. Ted Turner reminds us that, in his words, “I’m a very good thinker, but I sometimes grab the wrong word. I say something I didn’t think through adequately. I mean, I don’t type my speeches, then sit up there and read them off the teleprompter, you know. I wing it.” Just another Jyeshta on a crusade for power; nothing to see here folks. 

They have no problem talking about taboo topics, that bluntness of the Mars and Indra.  They may be involved with conveying secrets or safety information, giving warnings about possible sudden events. We find many coaches, tutors, and teachers with Mercury in Jyeshta. A few yoga teachers, health nuts, life coach and these lower level teachers who seem to know what’s best for us also have Mercury places here. The house it’s in will often suggest the topic of their sermon. They can easily become over-bearing in meetings, workshops, and conversational settings. This quality can also make them good lawyers, activists or policy advisors with an excellent knowledge of rhetoric and the art of the argument. 

It can also be noted that Jyeshta’s don’t really like to listen to others. This may be do to lack of attention, conceit or merely because of a hearing problem. Ted Turner once said: “I’m hard of hearing. I miss a lot. It’s really tough.” I  can certainly relate to this. I don’t have Mercury in Jyeshta, but I do have three significant placements in Jyeshta. And Jyeshta, like Ashlesha, has strong snake symbolism and snakes don’t have ears. Instead of heading they have a special sensitivity to atmosphere through their tongue and their skin. 

Mercury in Jyeshta Pada 1, Sagittarius Navamsha: They tend to espouse a strong ideology, lifelong students of philosophy. They can get tenure as teachers or professors. As politicians they can use emergency situation to ram through policy changes and maintain power. The message is first relates to scorpio so strong, powerful, penetrating, sudden, shocking, taboo, sexual or relates to life and death. Such messages, self narratives, logical pathways can make for very exciting reading. Transformation after transformation, tell all kind of books. The underlying message of that is spiritual a philosophical; humanistic, but also focused on policy path then law. Spiritual media.

Mercury in Jyeshta Pada 2, Capricorn Navamsha: This is a good position for leaders of revolution, or leaders of changing times. All of that Scorpio stuff paves the path to leadership for these people; or at least that the story. Catastrophe or surprise attacks may be used to gain power at young age. One may be an immature leader. State media.

Mercury in Jyeshta Pada 3, Aquarius Navamsha: Revolution in network communications. “The system is gonna chase.”

Mercury in Jyeshta Pada 4, Pisces Navamsha: Mercury comes into debilitation in the navamsha. Which causes their story of what happened in the emergency to become a little scattered, This is not like the Saturn pada where Mercury gives a linear story; in Pisces Pada there can be some confusion, lacking the linear, disconnected and possibly a little fanciful. It’s not necessarily that they lie, but their minds record feelings, and can fall into believing what they think happened. This can be like over-hearing two people in another room and completely misunderstanding. Maybe events happen in a similar way. Propaganda and miscommunication can also be involved. “All is lost anyways.”

Mercury in Jyeshta 5th house:

Rules the 3rd & 12th houses for Cancer ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Mercury in 5th house makes a person “learned, happy and courageous. He has good progeny and is learned in mantras (charms & spells) [sic].”

Jataka Bharnam: Mercury in 5th house “grants the happiness of having a son, many friends, skill in counselling and debate, great interest in sports and games an of good character. Mercury is an impotent planet so it’s not good for having a son if Saturn also afflicts the 5th house or 5th lord. The native will certainly be wise and intelligent with knowledge of Mantra sastra if there are benefic influences. Such a native makes his destiny with skill of his own intelligence and loves entertainment.”

B.V. Raman: Mercury in the 5th house “Learned and happy; will have a number of children. The person may become an advisor or minister; highly intelligent and learned in mantra sastra. Inclined to too much sexual pleasure and there is a lack of vitality.”

BPHS: 3rd lord in the 5th house: “The native will be blessed with sons and be worthy. If conjunct or aspected by malefic planets ones partner will be of cruel nature. When the 3rds lord is debilitated here, ones partner is of especially cruel nature and without religion. The native does not get a son and if one is born it’s likely to die. He will also get mental troubles due to his brother. If the 3rd house is related to the 5th house, the native is accomplished in physics or engineering because of the combination between the hands and the mind. Drawing, painting as well as education related to arms and weapons may also result.”

B.V. Raman: 3rd lord in the 5th house: “Not much pleasure will be derived from children but one will be financially well-off in life. Friction will prevail in domestic life. If well disposed the native will be highly benefited by his brothers. He will carry on agriculture operations on a large scale or he will be adopted by a rich family. He will also shine well in government service.”

BPHS: 12th lord in the 5th house: “The native will be bereft of sons or learning. He will spend money and go on pilgrimages in order to beget a son. The native may get his learning in a foreign country, which brings great expense. If weak he will remain in his own country but go stay in a hostel for his education.”

B.V. Raman: 12th lord in the 5th house: “Either difficulty to beget progeny or unhappiness from children will be experienced. He will be religious minded and may undertake pilgrimages. Weak minded and suffering mental aberrations; he feels he in miserable. He will not succeed in agriculture as his crops will suffer from pests and disease.”

Joseph Conrad – Tentative rectification.

Commentary: Joseph Conrad started his literary career with Mercury mahadasha at 37 years old.  24 March 1896 he married the daughter of a bookseller: Mercury Mercury Jupiter. He wrote numerous books between 1894 – 1911. The themes were typical Jyeshta themes: the hero who goes on adventure and faces the unknown will become king; or something like that. 14 December 1897, towards the end of his Mercury Ketu period he wrote a very Ketuish sentence to a friend. “Egoism, which is the moving force of the world, and altruism, which is its morality, these two contradictory instincts, of which one is so plain and the other so mysterious, cannot serve us unless in the incomprehensible alliance of their irreconcilable antagonism.”

Although he received some critical acclaim in this period with “Heart of Darkness” in 1899, Mercury Venus & ” MIrror of the Sea” in 1906; Jupiter Mercury; he suffered want of income in this period. It wasn’t until the end of Mercury dasha, Mercury Saturn, 9 Aug 1910, that he was able to secure a small pension of £100 per annum. 11th lord Saturn was able to provide him with a fixed income, but he also found a place to rent that offered him stability for the next ten years. He moved around all over the English countryside battling depression the whole of Mercury period.
