Sutras 1-6-If Jupiter is in his own sign
(Sagittarius or Pisces) in the first house (ascendant) the native will
be a. good speaker and well-versed in Shastras. He will have full
knowledge of three Vedas good number of children and will be happy, long
lived and learned. If Jupiter is in his sign of exaltation (Cancer) all
the above results will be fully realised and in his 16th year the
native will enjoy the effects of Maharaja yoga so caused by Jupiter. If
Jupiter is in the house of his enemy, or in the house of a malefic, or
is associated with a malefic or in his sign of debilitation (Capricorn)
the native will indulge in sinful deeds, he will have an unstable mind
and a medium span of life. He will be childless, ungrateful, full of
false vanity, will forsake his near relations and well wishers, like
travels, will be inimical towards others and be miserable.
Comments-Jupiter is the greatest benefic amongst all the planets. The
first house in the horoscope is the most ideal position for Jupiter. He
gets directional strength in this house and casts benefic aspects on the
5th house (signifying children, intellect etc), the 7th house
(signifying wife, marriage, married life etc.) and the 9th house
(signifying religious mindedness, bhagya, prosperity, father etc). If
Jupiter is in the first house in a horoscope, it indicates that the
native is blessed with the grace of God. According to Jataka Desamarga,
when Jupiter possessed of exceeding strength with clear bright rays,
occupies the lagna, the child born should be declared to be free from
all afflictions. This means that Jupiter posited in a kendra position to
the Moon wards off all evils (that would otherwise befall on a child)
caused by all the planets, just as a lion, though single, is able to
kill thousands of elephants. Jatakaa Parijata says in this respect:-
This means that if a powerful Jupiter in his full rays is posited in a
kendra (1,4,7,10), he alone wards off all aristhas just as a sincere
prayer to God Mahadev destroys all sins of the devotee.
Thus all the good results described in Sutras 1-4 will definitely be
realised if Jupiter is not in any way afflicted. If afflicted the native
will have to face effects in Sutras 5 and 6.
If Jupiter is in Sagittarius in the ascendant, he will be there as
lord of the 4th and the ascendant. If Jupiter is in Pisces, he will be
there as lord of the ascendant and the 10th house. If Jupiter is in
Cancer (his sign of exaltation), the ascendant will be Cancer and he
will be there as lord of the ninth. These are very beneficial
dispositions for any horoscope. The disposition of Jupiter in
Sagittarius, Pisces or Cancer in the ascendant (Lagna-Kendra) also gives
rise to Hamsa yoga (a Panch Mahapurusha Yoga), the effects of which
have been given as under:
“The native’s legs will have the markings of a conch, lotus, fish and
ankusa. He will possess a handsome body; he will be liked by others; he
will be righteous in disposition and pure in mind.”
The following horoscope of President Sanjeeva Reddy is a good example of Hamsa yoga-
The following horoscope of the late Sir Mirza Ismail Prime Minister of former Mysore state is another example of Hamsa yoga-
Brikat Jataka-The person concerned will be learned.
Phaldeepika-The native will have a dignified appearance, will perform
righteous deeds, will be long-lived and fearless. He will have
happiness from children.
Saravali-The native will possess a beautiful body, will be long-lived, learned and tolerant.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will be respected for his good qualities. He will spend money on pilgrimages.
