Jupiter in Aquarius for each Ascendant

Aries

Aries natives will have Jupiter transiting their 11th house. Hopes and wishes are likely to be expansive, optimistic, and humanistic. Large groups and gathering may be distinguished by ideology or religion. Gain can come from these areas as well. It can bring a lot of changes to routine and home culture and it can cause some disturbance in our ability to fix problems and face our enemies because Jupiters expansiveness Saturn’s ability to make connection. Although Jupiter can bring a lot of connection, networking, and fine knowledgable friends into your circle, network of associates, he will limit those friendships by ideology, dogma, or religion. Non-the less, with all those connections with people of like-minded beliefs, one is likely to also enjoy smaller group participation and short trips to places that hold some kind of special significance. Jupiter will aspect the 5th house to open them up to more fun and romance in life. This aspect is also gives his blessing to children, marriage partners, contracts, agreements. Jupiter brings us an abundance to where ever he sits, when he’s in the Artha – Kama trine he makes us more agreeable to spend time with others in every which way. It can be quite a social time. It can be especially good for those whose career is already aligned with Jupiter as well as fro those who may be looking to peruse other avenues of income like small business or advisory work. On the flip side, one is likely to have less privacy and time alone during this period, and perhaps due tot he adherence to ideological connections, some people may see a loss of profits at this time. Large corporations have their own ways to make profits disappear to foreign lands.  

Taurus

Taurus natives will feel this Jupiter on their career thru and expansion of duties and perhaps hours that they have to work. This is likely to be good for them on the long term, but it may not yield immediate profits and will take away from their time with friends. It’s a good time to do work that you really believe in. There may be some growth in the family, but laying 6th from the 5th, ones career is often and obstacle to having children so look for that kind of material growth from some other member of the lineage family. Though if Jupiter is also making relation with moon and 5th lord in a woman’s chart then the possibility of own child is there.Younger sibling may experience a spiritual rebirth or completely change their beliefs. This can be a good time for one to seek advisors for their problems: doctors, therapists, astrologers, priests, lawyers. It’s a good time to read the Bhagavad Gita and focus on completing your karma without attachment. Sitting in the Karma trine, it brings activity and since Jupiter owns the 8th house for Taurus natives, one will have to retain a certain amount of openness, optimism and dynamism in order to weather the fast paced policy changed going on at work 

Gemini

Gemini natives find Jupiter in his most auspicious house. Luck, optimism and faith in god will be at a height. Humanistic tendencies will be strong and they are likely to come into contact with more professors, guru’s and father figures. This could mean going on pilgrimage, starting university or post graduate studies. One of the difficulties of this position is that it can be idealistic in it’s promotion for more liberal minded expansive beliefs. Of course, when we go into the world of policy, ideology or wisdom studies then our energy is pulled away from what we all “the real world” which is the hierarchy and the climb for the top. When we tinker with our beliefs there can be an unexpected change in the things we value. The 9th house also causes sudden changes to our savings. Ones family may also be greatly changed due to a death in the family. Growth in the household might also obstruct the natural home rhythms. Many might even find their home cultures negatively affected by globalism. But on the whole this should be a good transit for Gemini, health and personality will be blessed by wisdom, they will find more inspired creative involvement. Hope and optimism will be strong. This can be good for priests and professors and those seeking contract or advisory work with 9th house Aquarius topics: Shaiva philosophy, the global network, market policy. It’s also a good time for these natives to meet a suitable partner. 

Cancer

Cancer natives will find this Jupiter in their 8th house. Jupiter is like a permission slip to have more sex and learn more about all those unspeakable topics that make us feel guilt and shame. Jupiter rules 6th and 9th, so hidden indiscretions are possible, one may experience a loss a faith or father, or, they may go away from their religion and seek occult knowledge. It’s a very good position for research and it can be beneficial for partners wealth or even unexpected gains like lottery, insurance inheritance, but it can also expend ones tax liabilities tax bill. Aspect to 12th house makes a person charitable so perhaps the tax burden can be offset thru charity. Charity also helps sooth a guilty conscience (5th from 8th house). In the end, this Jupiter will bring a renewal of faith when he moves to Pisces sometime next year. Younger siblings or perhaps even some of the groups we belong to will have problems due to over expansion. We all know what can happen to a small group of close friends once outsiders are allowed in (this of course is the great danger of tribalism). Too many secrets is likely to have a negative effect on both our communication and our mentality and our own changing beliefs will be seen as a problem to our tribe. The rapid cycle of changing policy is likely to catch us off guard in various ways. Saturn is still very strong and controlling Jupiter to a certain degree thru house ownership, so we will all be feeling the ideology in the marketplace. 

Leo

Leo natives may see a recycling of relationships, hidden relationships, dating. They may be more liberal and forgiving with their spouse and with people in general. Good relations and interactions with society will help to make more friends, will likely have some health benefits and will likely involve them getting out and around the neighbourhood a little bit more; such are the benefits of having an optimistic outlook regarding others. This can be a period of transformation in the way you see the other. But this Jupiter can also make your relationships feel heavy. Your sense of family values may be challenged and you may find some kind revolutionary shift in your dreams and fantasies. Seventh house Jupiter is an excellent position for gain, profit and connectivity of ones father or guru and those Leo natives who follow this kind of life path (11th from 9th in the 11th sign, Jupiter is natural signifier of 9th house). This is really good for counsellors sin e it combines the intelligence of 5th house with the secret nature of 8th house and the one-on-one atmosphere of 7th house. Can be good for any business that maintains confidential clientele or contracts. 

Virgo

Virgo natives have the kendra owning “bad boy” Jupiter in their charts; he loses his first face as a benevolent guru and will be making some trouble in the 6th house and perhaps bringing some troublesome advisors into your life; possibly just knotty boy sort of thing. May have trouble with fat on the body, or over extension. Contracts may get broken and your partner may fall ill. Problems with landlords and an increase of debt; though perhaps it’s also a time of visiting a credit councillor. You will need to see Ketu, the dissolver, in your natal chart to see when and if your debt can be cleared. You might be more perturbed by marketplace ideology than most as you point to it as the cause of all the obstacles in life. One way of another, Virgo’s are not likely to be political fence sitters while Jupiter is in Aquarius. As you begin to feel better about your debt and problems in life you should see an increase (or at least diversified) savings. The extra expenditure on advisors to overcome your problems can be seen thru Jupiters aspect to the 12th house; this will also affect your subconscious to make you  more judicious in your approach to your problems (this alone can make a big difference). Some hope should be there that you can at least do something, about your 6th house problems. The benefits of Jupiter transiting the 6th house are often most clearly see once Jupiter moves to transit the 7th house and hope is fully restored in ones perception of the other (relationships should then flourish and grow). With Jupiter in 6th and Saturn aspecting the 2nd house, you may want to check on the eating habits of your Virgo friends. 

Libra

Libra natives might be in a time of life where they want to put their problems on stage. This may come in the way children act out in order to get attention, or it could come in a way of announcing their victimhood and putting some kind of distance between themselves and their enemies. This could be a time of avoiding ones problems. Group think could be strong now, they are likely to get a lot of attention. One may see themselves as a story teller, a brave hero of justice. Jupiter’s transit to the 5th house is good for children, but in Libra natives Jupiter rules the 6th house so those children might also become a burden, or perhaps merely the over expansion of pregnancy that is a burden. This Jupiter can also affect sleep due to the hope infused excitement of 5th house. You can expect policy changes in your job; there could be lots of big changes in that regard and you might not be fully comfortable with them. Jupiter is in a good position to bring a lot more fun and excitement to life. You may go on more dates, or just take more little risks. It’s a really good time for creative risk, to start some kind of new project and overcome any initial hurdles. 

Scorpio

Scorpio natives will enjoy more time at home. Jupiters transit to the 4h house is one of the best for children as it brings children into the home both thru Jupiter and the 5th house as well as family prosperity from Jupiters 2nd house ownership. The home expansion will be seen in many ways: children coming into the home, some family member moving in. It could be a literal expansion project on the house, expanding the boundaries. Home life should be pleasant; farmers and gardeners with this placement will do well and one s likely to fell some inner peace. Expenditures often increase, but one my be happy to spend. And although long term prosperity is benefited by this placement, it can create obstacles to making money and one may be gainful for your debtors and enemies. This Jupiter can bring a greater spiritual or religious influence into the home and bring increase in comforts, research and meditation. This is, however, a position that suggests open borders or at least a very liberal border policy and of course this can relate with our personal boundaries as well so depending on how we are naturally attuned we will have more or less appreciation for this position. 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius natives will find themselves identifying with their story, social medic, group or organization. It could be spiritual groups, ideological groups, policy task force. Communication my take on a sense of gravity and one may try to use ideology to get what they want. There could be some virtue signalling with this placement. On one hand there could be more time for hobbies and perhaps taking up some new hobbies, but small business owners with this placement can see an expansion of their business. They may find that they have more time to do what they want to do rather than what they have to do. We typically like this kind of thing, but there is not a lot of positive personal growth. They are likely to spend more time out of the home and short travels will be auspicious. This Jupiter can bring more meetings, association memberships, certifications, brotherhoods. All of these third house things can become fairly routine by the end of the transit. This Jupiter can be a message of hope. 

Capricorn

Capricorn natives will feel some heaviness over their stored income. Jupiter can offer several forms of savings here as well as bringing spirituality, religion or ideology into the family values. The difficulty with this placement is that Jupiter is not a good planet for Capricorn natives and could bring losses related to savings and stored for and resources, but it can also cause them to skip meals and generally experience some loss es due to not being very present. You might also suffer losses due to not being aware of your speech. Perhaps you just repeat some ideological trope just because it’s been repeated so much before, but in this case you loos something because of it. Your own teachers could suffer also due to an imbalanced application of policy initiatives or unfair decisions. You might make some effort to apply more wisdom to your diet or perhaps your diet becomes affected by religious or ideological considerations. You might find yourself separating yourself from your tribe/group/association. It’s could give a heavy diet and more sweet flavour is possible. It’s good time to seek advice for your problems, perhaps even marital counselling since your partner will be experiencing this in their 8th house (8th from 7th). You can see the report for Cancer to see how your partner might fare in this planetary weather. It’s a good time to learn other languages, expand your bookshelf, or collect religious artefacts. Due to Saturns aspect on this Jupiter all these collections might be old or practical.

Aquarius

Aquarius natives will have this Jupiter in their ascendant, an infamously beneficial placement of Jupiter for good health, optimistic personality, humanistic nature, and a generally expansive perspective of oneself. Aspects to 5h and 9th house bring an expansive personality, broad intellect, and better relations with gurus and father figures. Jupiter is the main planet of wealth for these people so for better or worse they may identify with their wealth, both savings and income. It’s usually a good position for gain, strong connection to ones network of connections, as well as for this whole network to gain together. One may, however, go away from their family and/or shed some of their previous family values. And this can also cause a loss of prosperity in general for the family line. That family line might itself be lost. This Jupiter is good for self improvement and our self improvement can bring unexpected obstacles to our enemies, and there can also be sudden changes to our debt. Jupiter involvement with 11th and aspect to the 5th house also aids in speculative gains which can help end debt. If you are waiting for some kind of unearned income (insurance money, welfare, inheritance) there could be some obstacles (legal or policy) to these kinds of funds. Also, planets in 1st house can be an obstacle to research or going deep since the first house lies on the surface.  

Pisces

Pisces natives will be charitable and may face heavy expenditures, but this is a really good time to just head off to the ashram, practice meditation, take peace. It’s a good position to detach from material concerns and focus on spiritual life. Pisces itself represents isolated places, combined with this Jupiter in 12 ones may find indoctrination camps in isolated places. It’s a good position for anyone who works in isolated settings in any form: in the studio, the hospital, foreign places. This Jupiter can make one more open to foreign cultures, which, by aspect, opens the door to some surprise and to crossing the bridge and exploring the mysteries of life like sex, death, occultism and astrology. Jupiter in the moksha times can bring a kind of peace. This Jupiter can influence big changes in ones children, perhaps because of spiritual or ideological reasons tied to mass movements. This Jupiter can also draw energy away from your relationships, since Jupiter rules 4th and 7th from 7th our partner may be feeling like a slave to you and her home. Parental duties of the spouse could be especially heavy. This is because the pisces native my find themselves dreaming with their head in the clouds. Good for imagination. 

Rahu in the houses

Rahu in 1st house

Unusual, fascinating, bi-polar, outcast, deformed. Their personality is boundary breaking and they often feel special or chosen in some way. Thei personality may show some inconsistency like mania, depression or bi-polar. Some kind of physical deformity is possible. This could be something subtle or it could be major depending on the power of lagnesha and other factors. These natives often have the ability to fascinate people, and since Rahu rules over magnetism, people are often drawn in by this fascination. They may be attractive or repulsive, but it’s likely they will manage to blend both of these traits into the moment. 

They are often non-conformist living on the fringes of society or freely mixing with all people regardless of social position. They are often rebels without a cause putting themselves before everyone and everything else. They are likely to do almost anything to be noticed. 

Many may be affected by fatal alcohol syndrome or other debilities from the womb. Rahu can be recognised by wide set eyes, scanty hair (one the head, body and face), a smoky appearance, some oily or snakelike qualities, and certainly there will be something foreign (mixed race) looking about them compared to the typical features of their family. Some believe that the father could be someone other than the mother’s husband. At the very least this is likely to be questioned at some level. 

Rahu in 2nd house

Lies, falser values, corrupt banking, unusual image, creepy smile, impure food. Image is everything to these people. There is usually something unusual about the face they show to the world: the way they speak, dress, the stories they tell, the lineage they claim to be from. Something about their image just doesn’t quite fit who they really are. They may have something unusual or deformed about their face, mouth, eyes, or hair style. 

They like to project wealth that they don’t have and debt is a common outcome. Money really does have a way of burning a hole in their pocket. They have no sense of the true value of anything and they have no qualms about appropriating someone else’s hard earned income. Some kind of hoarding is also common with this placement, and since they are incapable of properly judging value, their hoards are usually filled with worthless junk.

Their speech usually comes across as insincere (if not outright lies). But they are often great storytellers with a liberal use of improper language. Speech impediments are not uncommon with this placement.  They are prone to illnesses of over consumption and likely eat meat and drink alcohol in the quest for what they believe the good life to be.

They can be the worst kinds of Hippocrates claiming false lineage and never living up to the values they claim to follow. This actually allows them to do pretty good in society for a while, but eventually the smoke clears and they are exposed for their lies and corruption. 

Rahu in 3rd house

Fake new, criminal gang, mixed messages, dirty mentality, false courage. These people can often be found mixing amongst unusual groups and possibly criminal gangs. They are so fascinated by teams and tribal affiliations that they get in way over their heads. They want to be seen as special because of these group affiliations and they can be highly manipulative of their group, tribe, team or gang. And often these groups are on some kind of mission to bend the rules or break taboos. 

They may be famous for their urgent and ambitious messaging style, but as the smoke clears (and it always does), their false reports will be plain for all to see. They are masters at harnessing the power of social media and some might even be effective hackers. Their mixed messages and foggy communication brings a pronounced confusion to interpersonal relationships as others wonder just what kind of message they were trying to send out. Their gestures are often exaggerated in some way; this includes a kind of insincere communication style. 

Rahu 3rd often signifies smoking, or the inhalation of thick oily smoke that will have its effect on the lungs. Ear problems like tinnitus can be seen with this placement and it’s likely they will have some kind of deformity of the shoulders, hands and arms. Crooked fingers and knobby knuckles is the most common manifestation of this placement. 

We see a person’s mentality in the 3rd house so Rahu here makes them unusually often criminal in their intent since they don’t play by the same rules as the rest of us. Rahu’s effect on the kama trine ensures that these people will break the rules to satisfy their desires. They can be exceedingly courageous, but in many ways it’s a false courage that tends to get them in over their heads. Hobbies are also seen in the 3rd house so they will likely have unusual, smokey and boundary breaking hobbies. Since small commercial ventures are also a part of 3rd house we can also find these natives doing some kind of shady business. 

The 3rd house is the first upachaya and Rahu is said to do well in these houses. Some astrologers say that he is exalted in gemini, and it’s true one can do well in the material world with this placement, but it’s the kind of doing well that comes with the suffering of the insatiable desire to fulfil their desires. This position works well for used cars salesmen, cheats, media activists. [Note: regarding journalism or messaging that the Sun will seek after truth and Venus will seek balance.]

Rahu in 4th house

Boundary issues, unstable foundations, learning disabilities, environmental pollution, no sense of belonging. This is a very difficult placement since it affects the very foundation of our life, mother, home, education. Mother is often ill or absent from a person’s early life. At best she would have been inconsistent in her motherly nurturing affections. There may be some kind of unconventional parentage that disrupted the early rhythms, routines and habits. These people are often raised on the wrong side of the tracks, in factory districts, on or near polluted lands. 

As children these people were often disruptful in the classroom and it’s possible they suffered from some kind of learning disability. If they get to university it’s likely that this too will be disrupted by some unique set of circumstances.  It’s often due to the unusual circumstances of their early childhood that they will have difficulty fitting in anywhere. They often go away from their birth place and live amongst other cultures in order to feel any kind of comfort, but any true sense of relaxation, contentment or release will elude them. These natives often remain renters and if they do have home or land they often come by it from false pretence: bank fraud, squatters, constant problems with landlords and caretakers who do not have proper boundaries will never provide the kind of foundation needed to establish solid roots in a place or cultural community. Some will seek to defend the land rights of others. And this position is ripe for cultural appropriation. 

Nannies, babysitters, step parents, early childhood teachers, gardeners and others who take on caretaking and parental roles without being fully legitimate will be seen with Rahu in 4th. Ultimately these people never learned proper boundaries and will invade the physical and emotional space of others and do not have the skills to keep others from doing the same to them. No matter what they do to put up boundaries there will always be a weak point somewhere. 

Rahu in the 5th house

Drama queen, gambler, forbidden lovers, narcissist. These people want all the attention, they feed off the attention and the drama they create, and their false sense of entitlement allows them to create a lot of drama. Social media influencers and others who project any kind of fantasy life that is really just smoke and mirrors would have this kind of combination (5th owner in 12th house would certainly ensure the fantasy part). 

They are gamblers and risk takers. They could be the grandmother cheating at cards, the politician accused of insider trading or the sports fixer seeking advantage. They often want to get some kind of advantage from their staged creative expressions. They like to break the rules just for fun. They are often obsessed with the idea of romantic love and they could be serial daters or tinder professionals. Their desperate search for “true love” often leads them down the road to heartbreak. This is also the position of the forbidden lover and illegitimate children (mars aspect can bring an abortion while Jupiter’s aspect can bring many (often adopted)  children. These people will often use their children to get privilege. In poor chart we can find welfare moms and other kinds of negligent parents who use their children for their own selfish ends. 

They are fascinated by that slight increase in heart rate that comes switch gambling and romance. Rahu here can also give someone an irregular heart beat (especially if sun is involved).  It’s often said that these natives have very sharp minds, but they often prove to be more clever than truly intelligent as Rahu in 5th can cause them to miscalculate (especially if Rahu is influencing mercury as well), make a mistake or obfuscate the matter somehow. 

Creativity and originality are seen in the 5th so all of this gets a little smoky, certainly unique, taboo and boundary breaking. They can misrepresent their productivity and they are all about productivity: more and more and more, it’s never enough. And the eventual disposal of the smoke will reveal the deeper truths and in the end they often end up without any real friends, just snakes and backbiters. 

Rahu in the 6th house

Provocation, exploitation, playing the victim. The 6th house is the 2nd upachaya house where Rahu is said to do well. He is often called the king maker in this position. He’s at home in this house of crime and accusation where he can exploit people’s vulnerabilities for their own gain. They can be masters at playing the victim role and know just how to exploit and manipulate a bad situation. Because of Rahu’s smoky ways it can be difficult to distinguish the exploited from the exploiter. These people make very good corrupt officials capable of engineering scandals while maintaining their own innocence. Virgo is the innocent virgin and this status, though likely untrue, is used to gain advantage somehow. They might be working behind the scenes as disaster capitalists pretending to help while exploiting the situation for maximum personal benefit. Ambulance chasers (lawyers), Dr Feel-good (drug dealers), bullies and others who seek to exploit the marginalised people will have this placement. Sometimes it’s the subtleties of a healthcare career that thieves in unbalanced situations. Things are never what they seem when Rahu is involved. 

Rahu in the 6th might the the provocateur who loves to start fights, poke the sleeping bear and lure people into the trap. It’s the young vixen in the short skirt attracting the wrong kind of attention and claiming innocence. It’s the” protester” instigating violence to justify a heavy police crackdown.  Rahu in 6th house is fascinated by drugs, crime, debt, war, disagreement, prostitution, illness and every kind fo imbalance. This can be a very dangerous place for Rahu to get in over his head. Someone may be using medicinals improperly and will be inconsistent in following any kind of therapy. They often avoid personal responsibility at all costs.

They may have unusual enemies or illnesses, stomach problems and digestive issues are common with this Rahu. They are likely to prefer (or even practice) alternative forms of healing which can go either way.  We also see peoples pets and service personnel in the 6th house. Both of which will likely be exotic or unusual in some way. And it’s possible they will complain that “good help is hard to find.” 

Rahu in the 7th house

Taboo relationships, deals with the devil, people pleaser. Rahu in the 7th house is notorious for difficult relationships. These people tend to think they need a partner to save them and they will agree to almost anything to get it. Fulfilling their agreements is quite another matter, but they are often offering more than they can do or they are saying they can do things that they cannot. 

They like taboo relationships, exotic partners are common: cultural mixing, same-sex partners, religious differences, large gaps in age, polygamy or open relationships are just some of the possibilities with this. These days it can even lead to a kind of devout celibacy (which is certainly strange in this day and age). Cheating, or being cheated on is common. They seek agreement and will use any means to get it. It can be very difficult for them to say no and once they’ve compromised they often find they’ve agreed to more than they bargained for. They often cannot see the agreement for what it is or their partner for who they are. And the terms of the contract are soon broken. 

This is another position that can give illegal business practices. They are more than willing to make a deal with the devil to get ahead. This is like the oil business or any other pollution generating business. But every kind of dodgy deal can come out of this Rahu placement. 

There is something about these people that is out of tune, they lack balance and harmony and seek equity through unequal terms. They can be very diplomatic and counsellors and advisors who break the rules or deal with taboo topics might  have this in their chart.  This Rahu can cause fertility problems or sexual debility (check Moon, Venus & Mars). 

Rahu in the 8th house

This is a very dangerous place for Rahu since his fascination leads a person thru the field of sex, death, catastrophe, guilt and transformation. They often like kinky or unusual sex and sexual partners. They can try all kinds of crazy things and still not be satisfied. They can become sex addicts with this (but we need to see more than this to confirm). They can take part in all kinds of risky behaviour and will likely cheat death several times before pushing their luck just a little too far. 

They may be obsessed with intimacy seeking to know what lies just below the surface. This can make them good researchers or detectives. Negative placements with this Rahu may cause them to stock their prey. They can be very sneaky and move around undetected.  

Their focus will be on the wealth of others: their partners’ wealth, the value of trusts, the hunger for inheritance, or merely for easy unearned wealth. Sometimes these people marry rich, get a disappointing inheritance, or live off the money or trusts, but they might also be the one who merely leeches off their partner; much better at taking than giving. 

They can be good in emergency situations, but similar urges as those seen with Ketu in 6th come up here as they seek to gain advantage thru catastrophic circumstances, emergencies, secrets. And secrets are a big part of the 8th house. This goes along with research and detective work, but there are many other ways they might use the secrets they know for their own advantage. This can lead them to occult, astrology, tarot and other methods of divination. 

My teacher calls Rahu in 8th, the “wanderer.” Their fascination leads them to cross the bridge, go to the other side of the tracks, enter the forbidden forest, and go overseas. Since the 8th house is all about sudden events, it’s never long before their fascination has moved on to something else. 

Rahu in the 9th house

Rahu in the 9th house hungry for the big picture. They want faith and philosophy, they are often travellers going to places that are sacred to them. These pilgrimages are likely to be unusual like their beliefs; but they will be passionate about their beliefs often holding them regardless of any proof in the contrary. They are often insincere Hippocrates who often assume the role of priest, professor or father figure without having the correct credentials. Rahu makes expedient use of religion in this position and will claim to follow whichever path will get them what they want or elevate their social standing. They often feel as though they are uniquely positioned to expound the higher truths despite their confusion on the topic. They can take on the external image of spirituality much easier than they can acquire the internal feeling of faith. Of course this kind of spiritual posturing can lead to a “holier than you” attitude. 

This can be a very political or ideological position as one seeks out the winning doctrine. The actual ideology doesn’t matter so much as the benefits that can be gained by professing that ideology.  

There is likely to be something unusual about the father figure and it’s possible there will even be some confusion over who one’s real father really is. Guru’s and mentors will be unusual in some way: often false prophets or fake gurus.

Rahu in the 10th house

This is the third upachaya house that Rahu is said to do well in. His fascination for leadership is very good at climbing the ladder while skipping a few steps in between. They tend to get positions of leadership without following the usual stepwise process. Of course they get in over their heads, but they also learn fast. There can be all kinds of disruptions in their career, but their ambition rarely falters. 

They will likely be seen as outcasts in their career and there are likely to be some stains upon their reputation. They could achieve the top spot for some time, but they usually fall before they are ready. They can also be the co-worker who seems to assume the role of the boss even if they really don’t have any legitimate claim to authority. But some people will also be known for their taboo or boundary breaking activity. What exactly they do can be hard to see through the smoke and mirrors, but they will fascinate people by their actions.  

Since social reputation is important to them, they seek to be seen and known and have little concern for home and comfort. They will easily take a job transfer for a better position. They may work irregular hours or face other irregularities in the office. These are the people who are also likely to abuse their position of power somehow, or perhaps they will merely sow confusion.   They can suffer from problems related to the skeletal system or the knees. 

Rahu in the 11th house

This is the 4th upachaya house that Rahu excels in. As the house of gain and profit, Rahu injects a strong dose of greed. The profit motive has become the great illusion for these people. This can be a very financially rewarding position for Rahu. Money money money everywhere and they don’t mind bending the rules to make it. 

They want more than anything to appear as a success, especially financially successful (Rahu in 2nd house has some similarities); they want to be seen as someone who has achieved their hopes and dreams in life. But is you ask them about their hopes and goals in life their answer will be unclear. They don’t really know what they want, or what they want is some strange unusual thing that can never be achieved. Rahu in Libra here might say they want world peace without having any plan to get it, but at some point they might just make the claim that they have achieved it. In any case, they will have the power to fascinate people with their hopes and dreams. 

The network is found in the 11th house. This gives Rahu a lot of strength here as his obsessive ways and technological acumen work very well with the massive source of network associates. These days in network interconnectivity it’s a very powerful place for Rahu. People will be fascinated by ones network of friends. They will be an unusual sort who feel entitled to challenge boundaries. They can be very good community organisers. 

Problems to the lower leg or irregularities in the nervous system or connective tissue can cause hurdles in a person’s life.   

Rahu in the 12th house

As the house of loss Rahu is fairly happy here since everything he eats passes thru without satisfaction. This becomes the plight of this natives expenditure: lots of wastage and little satisfaction. At best, money will be spent on strange unusual things but still they will not get to enjoy them. It will be much the same as purchasing smoke, which is actually indicated by this Rahu: expenses on things that go up in smoke. Rahu’s sign and sign lord will, of course, have a lot of say in these matters.

The 12th house is also the final moksha house and it’s the most well known house for liberation so these people may be fascinated by the freedom of liberation and are unlikely to be encumbered by stuff. They can just give things away and lose everything. They cannot get enough loss and they experience a lot of this; they will break the boundaries of proper expenditure. Much of it will go to outcasts or be spent on improper things. One of the nice things about Rahu in the 12th house is that those shadowy expenses mostly remain private; that whole Rahuvian shadow side remains hidden, not out of guilt that comes from the 8th house hidden, but because the things of the 12th house are essentially lost in the universal ocean. 

We also see a person’s inner quest for spirituality in the 12th house (the 9th house has more to do with our external expressions of spirituality). With Rahu here they are fascinated and hungry for the inner spiritual experience. As the 4th from the 9th it is the foundation for the external expressions of spirituality. They will build an unusual foundation for their beliefs, or perhaps merely a foreign foundation that can be unclear. 

But dreams, fantasies and imagination are also a part of the 12th house and these things don’t have to follow any protocol; the 12th house is already unreal so Rahu works pretty good here. This Rahu can be good for the imagination, dreaming big, really big, and having unusual or even taboo fantasies. It’s likely that others will not see these 12th house things in a person clearly so there may be some fascination generated in the public about their foreign travels or getaways. These kinds of things will certainly be unique.   

The most obvious thing about Rahu in the 12th house is travel: foreign travel or just getting away from it all. They can experience much solitude or isolation in life. And it’s likely they will seek advantage from qualities relation to foreignness, dreams, meditation. But further fascination could be there for hospitals, retreats, prisons, asylums, and the rest of these places (or people relating to the places) represented in the 12th house.

The deformity on the body is most likely to occur on the foot. 

June 21 transits

June 21 Eclipse in Gemini will have significant effects on media and communication. It will be occurring in Mrigrashira nakshatra, but very quickly after crossing the Sun, the moon will go into Ardra nakshatra. Both of these nakshatra relate to research in slightly different ways. It’s the part of the story where the inebriating quest for satisfaction is sought in the material world where it meets with disappointment, frustration and sorrow.

Dark moon is always a time of diminished sensitivity, but with Rahu it can pervert the mind, heighten fears and phobias and mask the true intentions. With Sun in this house, truth can become skewed and people may feel a false sense of power. With Mercury, I expect the emotional rhetoric to increase dramatically for the few days around the eclipse. With the warrior Mars aspecting from Pisces the rhetoric will be especially aggressive and there is likely to be much talk of war.

The path of the eclipse is through Congo, Ethiopia, Yemen, Pakistan, North India and across a good partition of China and Taiwan. This could be especially deadly in North India where 20 Indian soldiers were recently killed in what can only be described as a brawl with their Chinese counterparts of the remote border region. And Yemen has been under siege for so long that anything could happen there. And China, including Taiwan, have their own problems which are not so different from what we see going on in Seattle these days with the autonomous zone.

Gemini rules over the arms: not just the arms of the body, but also the armaments of nations and the weapons we possess. This is an interesting point because it suggests how words are weapons, and how media rhetoric and information technology play into the struggles and obstacles we face. We have seen numerous unconventional weapons since Rahu came into Gemini; much of which would be in the form of propaganda, but we have also been hearing about lasers and “super duper” fast missiles. Sun and Mars will be affecting Rahu giving powerful effects to the force of unconventional arms.

Gemini is the sign of groups, teams, gangs, associates, and essentially tribalism. We have seen this great fascination with tribalism over the past couple of years as society drifts away from the notion of the sovereign individual. The current BLM movement has certainly exacerbated the divide between whites and blacks (while ignoring the reality that most of the world falls somewhere in between the two), the fascists and the anti-fascists (while ignoring the fanatical extremism on both sides). There is a tendency for the media to lump people into groups and judge people based on their group identity rather than their individual identity or actions. Again, the Mars aspect here can easily devolve into tribal warfare. (You’ll notice that I even just lumped the media together as a tribe before I made my allegations even though I am arguably taking part in the media myself by writing this.)

Gemini is also the 6th sign from Capricorn suggesting the obstacles we face as leaders as well as the obstacles faced by governments. This is why something as simple as free speech is so important and so contentious: it’s the enemy of the government. And as an interesting twist, Gemini is also the 10th sign from Virgo which suggests some connection with the leader of the enemy. So we end up with these masked rogue leaders in the USA and plenty to suggest that it’s not organic as it seems. I have been saying for months that nothing is as it seems. This is the Rahu effect in Gemini.

The loss of cultural grounding that we get in Cancer is lost in Gemini. Where Cancer brings people together out of a sense of shared values and national identity, Gemini (tribalism) works together with(7th from) Sagittarius (globalism) for the destruction of the natural rhythms, home comforts, culture, and boundaries. The more direct effects of the eclipse are usually only felt for a few days before and after so it’s possible we will get some growing expressions of nationalism by the 23rd or so.

If it was a human chart I was looking at with the Aries ascendant, I would likely diagnose them with hyperthyroidism in the eclipse chart.

Mars in Pisces brings with it a kind of repressed anger that comes out through as aggressive communication. It causes one’s enemies to also be more aggressive, and fights with partners and generally unruly negotiations. It brings a kind of passive aggressiveness that infuriates everyone around. It should be noted that Saturn is also aspecting Mars which will increase the inner sense of frustration. This can also bring some tension at sea that will last for the duration of this aspect.

This Mars Saturn tension is also affecting agreements and negotiations with their aspect on Libra along with Rahu. This Mars influence will likely be the final straw for many agreements and partnerships as each party begins to assert themselves. Rahu has been aspecting this sign for about a year now so many of these negotiations have not been in good faith anyways.

Mars in Pisces can also increase that activity at night, fighting going on behind the scenes and fighting in foreign lands due to a kind of subconscious aggression. Some might say that the ancestral spirits want to express themselves in an aggressive way.

The good news is that Jupiter also has an aspect on Virgo which should allow diplomacy to avert all out war, but the smaller tribal wars like we see in the USA right now are likely to experience heightened intensity for only a few days.

Jupiter and Venus are still giving effects in Taurus which will continue to be good for the bankers. Though inflation is also possible due to these two powerful benefics increasing the value of stored resources while mercury, who is the Money itself is corrupted by Rahu and burnt out by the two fiery planets.

Eclipses are a good time for Tantra and occult sadhana for those who are prepared to face their shadows with compassion. It’s a very good time to distinguish ourselves and others as individuals rather than as members of the group. It’s also a good time to take action to overcome our obstacles, illnesses and enemies. Mantra meditations can be especially potent with Leo’s ruler in Gemini. Gemini shows what we gain from Mantra. The value of fixed assets can grow in this time. Research, secret knowledge and revolution will all feel some appreciation from Venus aspect, but since Mars, the ruler of Scorpio, is in Pisces it might be difficult to actualize, though there can be unexpected gains none-the-less. Active meditation, commonly done through walking or yoga can have special benefits as well.

This eclipse seems to me to signal the end of six months of Kal Sharpa. The illuminator of truth is finally coming out of the grasp of the shadows. Much of the confusion of the first half of this year should begin to become more clear. But we also have to be open to the idea that we may have been wrong about some things over the first part of the year. This is crucial for personal growth. Allow reason to keep your intuition in check while simultaneously allowing your intuition to keep your reason in check. Allow them to meet in the middle without giving primacy to either. 

Good luck
