Many a time we are quizzed with the question, what is the purpose of my life? What responsibilities are supposed to be shouldered by me and When should I execute them? Do I know the reason of by birth?
These questions bother many of us. One would delve upon this question in detailed by find an answer. As in Hindu mythology it is believed, the path to liberation is to do one’s birth karma. Hence it becomes very important for a native to know the purpose of their life.
Some of them are luck to find them. Others come close to the purpose of their life and lead accordingly. The rest resign to their fate, that something good is in store for me and do nothing to pursue the same.
Of course, all of us are blessed with some good and bad moments in life. Here the good times means, they have understood their purpose in life and then pursue the same in.
The terminology called “jyana” (some spell it as Gyan) is a term in Sanskrit is also used in self-realisation. So, one is blessed with Jyana at an early stage in life, that means, they have understood the purpose of their life.
In the pursuit of this endeavour, they attain the goal or path in their life quite early. What they have termed as the purpose of their life. To quote a few examples, Sachin Tendulkar, PV Sindhu, Sania Mirza and many more.
Then the question one would ask is that, why am not I blessed with Jyana to know the purpose of my life? Is there any way that one can find the answers to the above question?
Thankfully yes! Our great sages have always compiled the various organs of the text called Veda, to enlighten the mankind. One such compilation is the study of astrology, in the most scientific manner.
They have given to us the mathematical derivation of the purpose of one’s life in the form of a birth chart i.
It is here in astrology, we have nine planet and twelve signs which represents a native’s entire life span through, birth charts. The nine planets as we all know starts with Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus.
Here, Sun and Moon are the only two planets own one house where as: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Venus own two houses each, respectively. So, out twelve houses in a horoscope, these nine planets have owned their respective space. The remaining two, Rahu and Ketu own no house.
In fact, as it is said that, astrology is a science of calculation, Rahu and Ketu are not planets in real sense. They are two points of calculation. Hence the two of them are given special importance.
Their significance is also termed very important, as the placement of these two planets is the reason for Jyana in any native’s birth chart.
Rahu and Ketu are 180 degrees apart from each other, however the transit from one zodiac to the other, simultaneously. Which means, the two of them transit on the same day, date and time.
The other importance to them is that, it is only Rahu and Ketu who transit in an anti-clock wise, unlike the remaining seven planets. Hence, they play a very crucial role in a native’s horoscope.
In fact, the feature or the nature of these two planets differ quite significantly. As, Rahu is generous and considered a giver to the seeker. Ketu on the other hand believes in austerity and takes away from the native, proportionately.
This can be experienced during their transit or when they are in operation through their main period (Mahadasha) or sub-period (Antradasha). Thus, their placement in a birth chart say in the 1st house or the 5th ,7th or the 12th house from the ascendant gives clear indication of a native’s purpose in their present life span.
So, one would realise the purpose of their life when the Main or Sub-Period is active in a native’s life.
Certainly, there are other important aspects to be checked about Rahu and Ketu, along with their placement in the above-mentioned houses. However, one would still get some understanding as the purpose of one’s life through their study.
Since the 1st house indicates, oneself, 5th house is for Purva-punya sthan or the good deeds accumulated in the earlier life, 7th house is the house of partnership and spouse, 12th house is the house of Moksha or liberation. One can get good idea of one’s life.
Similar trends or effects can be seen when Rahu and Ketu would transit through the above houses in a native’s house. Especially if the above-mentioned house is represented by Gemini, Libra and Acquirus. The results then are amplified accordingly.
Thus, the study of Rahu and Ketu is very important in any horoscope. Usually many text-books do talk of planets, other than Rahu and Ketu. Since only an expert astrologer, with their knowledge and experience can decipher Rahu and Ketu.
