Transit of Guru in Dhanur rasi

गणानां त्वा गणपतिं हवामहे कविं कवीनामुपमश्रवस्तमं। ज्येष्ठराजं ब्रह्मणां ब्रह्मणस्पत आ नः शृण्वन्नूतिभिः सीद सादनं॥ (Rigveda Mandala 2-Sukta 23-Rik 1)

"We invoke you, Brahmanaspati, chief leader of the (heavenly) bands, a sage of sages, abounding beyond measure in (every kind of) food, best lord of prayer, hearing our invocations, come with your protections and sit down in the chamber of sacrifice". The above mantra used as avahana mantra for Lord Ganesha is actually the mantra related to Brihaspati also known as Brahmanaspati. Prayers to Brihasptati, His description appear largely in Mandala 1, 2, 7 and 10.  Only one sukata (No. 50) is dedicated to Brihaspati in Mandala 4. In Mandala 5 and 3, the references to Brihaspati can be found at Sukta 43 and sukta 62 respectively. Here are some examples:

अनर्वाणं वृषभं मंद्रजिह्वं बृहस्पतिं वर्धया नव्यमर्कैः। गाथान्यः सुरुचो यस्य देवा आशृण्वंति नवमानस्य मर्ताः॥  [1-190-1] - Priest, augment by your hymns Brihaspati, who deserts not (his worshipper); the showerer (of benefits), the pleasant tongued, the adorable; of whom resplendent, god and men (the ministers) of the institutor of the sacrifice, emulous in sacred songs, proclaim (the praise). 

When guru transited in dhanur rasi, there were many remarkable milestones in history. With Raja Harischandra, first full-length movie of India entered the silver screen industry (3 May 1913); The Gateway of India in Mumbai, was inaugurated (4 December 24); States of Gujarat and Maharashtra were carved from the State of Bombay (1 May 1960); India and Pakisan sign Simla Agreement agreeing to settle their disputes peacefully (2 July 1972); There were good news for the masses - The Sixth Pay Commission recommendations were accepted by the government (24 March 2008). There were sad demise of some luminaries like - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of Transcendental Meditation (5 February 2008); Baba Amte, social activist (9 February 2008); Meena Kumari, renowned actress (31 March 1972); When guru was associated with kuja, there were advances in the field of science, engineering and military. First electric train makes its journey from Victoria Terminus to Kurla (3 February 1925). India test fires nuclear-capable surface-to-surface missile Agni-I having a range of 700 to 900 km (23 March 2008); A world record created by India by sending 10 satellites into orbit in a single launch (28 April 2008). When guru was afflicted we see violent incidents like arms dropping in Purlia dist, WB (17 December 1995).

Have I cherry picked the events, convenient way of devil quoting the scripture? I have not tried to cause any distortion, not a bit. When something happens in the world, there are no bystanders. The ripples engulf whole world in different ways and magnitudes. Likewise, one can hardly isolate the effects of a planet. The properties of a particle can not be understood by sending a beam of light; that will distort the observations. However, for study purposes one has to confine to a limited phenomenon. The observations mentioned above may get distorted subject to other conditions like eclipses, lunation charts and other such conditions. For instance When Geeta Dutt, playback singer passed away (20 July 1972), there was no affliction to guru but cluster of planets is seen in 8th from guru. Between 26th-29th November 2008, in terror attacks in Mumbai (known as 26/11) 175 people were killed and over 308 wounded. Guru was not afflicted. But In lunation chart, drawn on 29.10.2008, no affliction to 4th or 8th or guru is found. Lunation in 2nd, in fact 8th house is aspected kuja, own sign aspect! Total solar eclipse on 01.08.2018 ended in 8th from lagna and the lunar eclipse that followed on 16/17.08.2008 was across 2nd and 8th of the foundation chart of the country. That means, mere presence of guru in dhanus or mere affliction may not define the incidents.

Generally, association of kuja causes engineering advancements. When Prithvi II, a nuclear-capable, 350-km range surface-to-surface ballistic missile was successfully test-fired (23 May 2008), there was no aspect of kuja on guru. I can not explain the planetary conditions for passing away of N. T. Rama Rao, actor, director, producer and politician (18 January 1996) nor passing away of V. P. Singh, Prime Minister of India (27 November 2008). Guru was not afflicted in these two episodes. Perhaps, detailed examination lunations, eclipses and dasha/bhukti in the foundation chart etc., are required. I suffer paucity of time and such studious examination is not possible by a bird-brained (incidentally, my pen name used to be cerebro de pajaro!), small time personal astrologer. Have I cherry picked the events? I picked up some putrid ones, willfully!

Generally speaking guru in own sign bestows good results related to his signification - birth of great personalities, intelligential activities, religious frame of mind, abundance of food & health, prevailing of peace between neighbors and effective judiciary. When guru is afflicted, it causes perverted intelligence, clashes of religious beliefs, famine due to shortage of wheat and rice, water transmitted diseases affecting liver, conflicts with judiciary as well as war-like situation with the neighbors. Unfortunately, during the entire stay of guru in dhanur rasi, he is afflicted either by shani, kuja or ketu.

Guru transits in dhanur rasi from 05.11.2019 to 30.03.2020 and from 30.06.2020 to 20.11.2020. During his stay in dhanur rasi, is own sign, guru is combust from 15.12.2019 to 10.01.2020 and retrograde from 30.06.2020 to 13.09.2020. Guru is overpowered by Ravi during combustion and the results differ, based on the role of Ravi in birth chart. During  moudhya period no auspicious functions like vidyarambha are held. Transit of Guru in 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th from chandra rasi goes under the name, Gurubala.  Guru does trigger good events in those houses provided there are no planets in vedha namely in 12th, 4th, 3rd, 10th and 8th respectively from chandra rasi. Converse of this holds good when Guru transits in adverse 12th, 4th, 3rd, 10th and 8th from chandra rasi.  For instance Guru transiting in adverse 8th will not cause any evil phenomenon when a planet is transiting in 11th from rasi. During retrogression, there will not be any good results, but it would not cause adverse results. it is just like stay order of 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 position, he becomes even more malefic. The end results depend 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. More

During transit of Guru in dhanur rasi, it is the bad transit for vrishabha and kataka persons, they should take up remedial measures like shanti for guru and recitation of guru related mantras, if there are issues related to dasha and bhukti. On the onset itself, shanti for guru is not required. Guru Shanti is the procedure of recitation of guru beeja mantra or gayatri mantra or namaskara mantra (some call it Veda mantra!) 16000+ times. This site offers various mantras that can be used as remedial measures, in Kannada, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali, Punjabi, Gujarati, Oriya and English.  More

Namaskara mantra and peedahara mantra can be recited any time and any where and they do not require specific dress etc., Gayatri mantra and beeja mantras should be recited in special dress, early in the morning after bath in empty stomach. Minimum recitation may be 21 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. Avahana mantras are used to invoke the particular deity  into a picture, kalasha or yantra and conduct pooja. Those people who are accustomed to do pooja procedure will find it easy. Worship of navagrahas is not black magic, you need not harbor any reservations. Indian society suffers great stigma due to reservations in matters of religion and social strata. Asttottara shatanamavali is used to do floral pooja after abhisekha. Mantra, stora, kavacha and asttotttara shatanama stotra are for recitation. These mantras are at par with each other. Out of these kavacha and 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.,   People born in makara rasi and meena rasi MUST visit places of worship 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.

Transit of Guru in the houses   from rasi






Vedha by planets  in the houses   from rasi






With reference to independence chart this transit is in the 7th, a favorable transit. There will be more interest in religious practices and intellectual developments. There will be changes in education system imbibing cultural and moral values - saffronization (right-wing Hindu nationalism) cry out the opposition.  Many more states will fall into the fold of BJP.  There will be more concern about animal rights, particularly protection of cows. The government will win in all the matters concerning judiciary. There is no opposition at all - due to this, at times, government may falter by wrong decisions and excesses. When guru is afflicted, many influential persons will pass away.  The government and the country is insulted by defection of some important persons.  Some of the scientists may commit suicide or run away from the country. Patriotism is taken into new heights, until the flag pole go so high to hurt the spirit of patriotism. Government will be embroiled in many issues like NRC, Human Rights.  The government should be wise to use the scepter at proper time. 7th also happens to be maraka staana, there will be some situations when the country is bothered about a nuclear or chemical war breakout. During the period from 30.06.2020 to 13.09.2020, the results promised by Guru are on hold as Guru is retrograde. Guru from dhanur rasi aspects kuja and chandra the 7th and 4th lord and mid points of 2nd and 3rd bhavas in the Foundation Chart, causing comforting effect.  Somebody within the ruling party may get up and will be able to control the damage.

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 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!

This is an unfavorable transit in the sense the above good results are not served on a plate, ready for your pleasure. You will have to put considerable amount of work and then the success is assured. In the beginning, any task will seem to be impossible. The learning curve is very steep. However, it is practically seen that transit in 4th sign favors excellent education, acquisition of properties and fulfilment of all desires.

You will relish giving donations secretly.

During the month of November 2017Tula  (Libra): Being transit in the 3rd from rasi, this is the period of communication, expansion and acquiring new contacts. I should say, this is not a favorable transit - it causes problems in relationship with brothers, sisters, friends and partners. Expansion of business of influence does not happen easily. Successful tours and business trips are possible. You will strive hard to excel in your life. You come across good friends who are advantageous later on. You develop some religious zeal suddenly and that gives lot of moral courage. You will take up membership of elite clubs and organizations. Writers and broadcasters of travelogues and sports events have good time. When Guru is combust, reverse of this happens, close friends pick up quarrels and part their ways with you.

There will be great increase in monthly income. But you should ensure that you save some of it. Familial happiness is assured. Your mind is clear and is always in a happy mood. Many tula rasi people get married or settle in life. This is a good time for initiation to mantras and study of occult subjects. Singers, particularly vocal singers achieve perfection in their endeavors. You will clear old outstanding loans. You can expect for cures for diseases. Service problems, if any, are solved to your satisfaction. There is increase in your influence and popularity. Promotions and all the benefits from the employer sure to happen.

During the month of November 2017Dhanus  (Sagittarius): Guru transits over your rasi. There are no vedha points for this transit. Many people of this sign get married during this transit. Transit over your rasi brings popularity, good health and status. This is not a favorable position for Guru and so these benefic results will not come spontaneously but you have to work hard for these. You are more conscious of your health due to some fear of impending health disaster. Such health problems are expected when Guru is combust. You are prone to certain diseases in upper chest like cold effects. Due to this, you will take up various precautions voluntarily like yoga, fitness training, meditation and change of eating habits.

You will learn to come out of day to day tensions. You are able to grab some peaceful moments, this way. This period comes as a boon for those recovering from diseases and problems. When Guru is combust, you will experience losses in investments, rifts with children and disappointments. Hence, caution is required during the period of combustion. The education of children causes deflation of savings. Health is quite good. For students, it is a good period as they get good co-operation from their teachers. Service problems, if any, is resolved in your favor. There is good development in hobbies.  You have lot of religious mentality. You can expect small inheritance also.

During the month of November 2017Meena (Pisces): Transit in 10th can not be said as a favorable transit as it does not give you pay rise nor help you in any tangible ways. On the other hand, this is the favorable transit as it gives you many opportunities to prove your talent and capacities!
