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).
Guru transits in kumbha from 7-Apr-2021 to 14-Sep-2021 & from 21-Nov-2021 to  13-Apr-2022. During his stay in kumbha guru is combust from 20.02.2022 to 20.03.2022. Guru is retrograde  from 21.06.2021 (and in retrogression till to 18.10.2021, retraces into makara rasi). Guru is overpowered by Ravi during combustion and the results differ, based on the role of Ravi in birth chart. During moudhya 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. As guru is neecha in this rasi, even the benefits causes when he is in good houses (from your rasi) are not massive. In the meantime, the adverse results become huge. More

Guru in kumbha is the worst transit for kataka and kanya rasi persons, they should take up remedial measures like shanti for guru and recitation of guru beeja mantra or gayatri mantra (any one of these, depending on time available and inclination), minimum 21 times a day. 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 they like. It is always better to visit temples, churches or mosques etc., People born in kataka and kanya rasis 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 rasis may also visit temples, surely God will not throw them out! The benefic role played by Guru will increase even more ( atishaya pala praptyartham, as in navagraha sankapa).
With reference to independence chart, this is favorable transit which has long term effects.  The fears of some that democracy is overshadowed by autocratic style of functioning is purged.  The government becomes more tolerant towards opposition but there is also high degree of patriotism which is approved by common man. The liberators automatically fall silent while appreciations for effective governance is showered worldwide. There is effective governance and whatever happens during this transit has everlasting effects in building the face of the country. There is lot of courage and firm handed assertiveness in dealing with the neighbors - be it big brother China, cousin Russia, our regular dushmans or Uncle Sam. The intellectual persons will clearly see where the country is heading and fall in the line.  Sloganeering for new found ideas will not be tolerated, not by the grain. This is not perverted nationalism that Mouryas were great or manu vadis should be brought back to frontage.  It is well thought, balanced and carefully considered love for the nation that naturally drowns the voices of dissidence. There is intellectual development, many new waves movies. The education is no longer disturbed by pandemics and natural disasters. Religious mentality in masses is promoted.  Government will take more decisive stand on some crucial issues like common civil code, citizenship, agriculture laws and family status. The situation is not bad for opposition; it is only that they do not find any issues and the leadership issues are still remain unresolved.
The results are based on rasi (placement of chandra in birth chart) and has nothing to do  with ascendant (lagna) or sun sign.  It should be noted that the results remarked here are general in nature.  For better comprehension, the dasha and bhukti in the natal chart in consideration to status of planets should be investigated.
