Since a very long time I have been continuously searching as to what are the factors that contribute to special aspects of the outer planets viz., Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. Nowhere, I got any clue whatsoever. Only meaningful point that I was able to lay my hand was based on the distance between the planets more from the Astronomical point of view but never from Astrological domain.
I am indeed excited to share with all of you that I have been able to solve the mystery of special aspects except for the third aspect of Saturn. It is quite possible that in due course, I may be able to solve this mystery as well. Let me straight go on to the point.
Jupiter is the lord of the 9th and 12th sign of the Zodiac as we all know. Thus, Jupiter is an embodiment of 9th aspect. Now, let us take 9th sign from the 9th which is the 5th sign of the Zodiac. Without any doubt, we can happily say that this is the main reason for Jupiter to have the special aspect of 5th and 9th.
Now moving on to its Karakatva or portfolio. It is a causative planet for progeny because of the 9th aspect from its 9th sign is Leo the lord of which is Sun, the Atma or soul. It is also a causative planet for education since 4th house stands for education. The 4th sign of the Zodiac being Cancer the lord of which is Moon, the 9th aspect of Jupiter from falling on Leo the 5th house too covers education since it is 2nd to Cancer.
Taking a holistic look on Jupiter, in the case of female, the so called ‘Guru Bala’ for marriage has lot of meaning. This is in view of the fact that, Jupiter being the lord of the 9th and 12th sign of the Zodiac, 9th indicating distance and as well, by and large, future, the future for a girl is in the 12th house which stands for alien, new, new circumstances and environment. These points simply indicate that the girl is moving out of her parent home to a new place which is that of her husband.
Mars owns the 1st and 8th sign of the Zodiac. Here, the 8th ownership stands out and Mars 8th aspect certainly is of utmost importance. Therefore, I feel that Mars 8th aspect is undisputable. Now, like in the case of Jupiter, let us take the 9th house of future from the 8th house viz., Scorpio. This is the 4th sign of the Zodiac. Therefore, the logic applied in case of Jupiter is strictly applicable to Mars, perfectly.
Saturn owns the 10th and 11th sign of the Zodiac. Therefore, the 10th aspect of Saturn like in the case of Jupiter and Mars is abundantly clear. However, I am not able think why Saturn has the 3rd aspect as well. One very meaningful comment that I read in one of the websites was that the 3rd house in any chart stands out for effort, communication, strength, courage and confidence. Well, these are the fundamental requisites for one to make a living. Saturn being called as ‘Dharma Karmadipathi’ which means that one has to make a living by doing some productive job in accordance with ‘Dharma’ legal and moral ways, may be the 3rd aspect is justifiable although like in the case of Jupiter and Mars, it falls short of logic.
I am really happy to share with all of you these points and with this subject as the nucleus, chart delineation will now take a leap forward and thus provides many new ideas and brings an altogether new set of dimensions, never thought of earlier.
