Guru Peyarchi - Jupiter's Transit
In Joyotish, transit of planets from one house to another is considered important. This month of December 2009, the most benefic planet jupiter (Guru) goes to kumbha (Aquarius) from Makara (capricorn). Last month we saw the transit of rahu-ketu nodes. Rahu changed house from makara to Danush and ketu from simah to kadaka. And a month before saturn transit from simha (leo) to kanya (virgo). Generally these planets stay in any house for more than one year and their tranists are considered imporatnt because they result will be same for a long time either good or bad. So people pay great attention to these transits. Magazines and newspapers write much about the transit results. Special editions are published by news papers. Special poojas, pariharas and homas are performed to get benefits from the Grahas.
What ancient jyotish classic tell about these transits?
Ancient classics like parashara hora shastra written by maharshi parashara and kalayanavarama's saravali, and Brihat jataka mention little or none about the transit / Gochar effects. Only western astrologers give much important to planet transits. We (hindu astrologers) rely heavily on Dasa system (especially vimsothari dasa) for future predictions.
We use moon based "lunar system" for Gochar/Transit predictions. Birth rasi / moon sign is determined by the position of moon / chandra in a horoscope at the time of birth. For exmaple if you have moon in your birth horoscope at Rishaba / Taurus, your moon sign / birth rashi is Rishaba / Taurus.
I will write a seperate tutorial / lessons for Gochar / transit effect. Now we will see the results for Guru peyarchi / jupiter's transit breifly.
When jupiter occupies houses 2,5,7,9,11 from birth rashi the results will be good other wise bad.
for example, if your birth rashi is rishaba and jupiter occupies mithuna, kanya(libra) , Vrichika(Scorpio) , Makara(Capricorn) , Meena (Pisces) the result will be auspicious and good otherwise bad.
There are many other factors to be considered while determining transit results. Whether the rashi / sign is friendly/ruling/debiliation/exaltaion sign of the planet.
For example when jupiter is posited at 5th house (children) and aspected by saturn (sani) there will be troubles for children.
Jupiter in 1st bhava / house:
