Venus, Jupiter and Saturn

A new look at Venus, Jupiter and Saturn.

Sukracharya (related to Venus), son of Brighu was vengeful of Vishnu Vishnu having destroyed their haven and having killed his mother and the ashuras who she had given shelter to. Besides, Brihaspati was the favored one both from his earlier teacher and Brihaspati's father Angiras and the Devas who eventually elected Brihaspati as their own Guru.

Sukracharya, therefore, chose the ashuras (the dark side, if the name permits) as his disciples and being stronger and more powerfully learned than Brihaspati quickly led Ashuras to victory over the Devas.

That was quite a mouthful!

Sukracharya’s progeny became the clan of Purus – Pauravas, the family that fought in the Mahabharata and also Yadus – the dynasty that Lord Krishna belonged to.

Those of us endowed with Venus like features that Sukracharya relates to are – Highly informed and knowledgeable; much better than the competitor but are not always recognized by our managers and tribal leaders, easily capable of winning (victory),  egotist and plagued with vanity and vengeance. The Sukra endowed persons give rise to progenitors that become strong clans. 

Those that fall in line with Jupiter (Brihaspati) get recognition much beyond their worth. Status, favors and recognition come easy compared to other folks who actually deserve it. However, the shortcuts to success only create holes in security; and eventually the downtrend begins to re-instate folks aligned to Sukra (Venus) (who are more hardworking and zealous in their efforts) to take over or rule.

Some victories won by the Venus-driven may also get counteracted by Saturn who is Venus’ friend. It is not unusual to see a strong Venus-Saturn combination leading to Financial and Health problems in a person’s life. It’s a clear indication for those born with strong Venus and Saturn to witness a complete reversal of their fortunes and health two to three times in their lifetime. But, having Sukra as their Guru, these reversals are short-lived and eventually bring forth the victory they deserve.

On the other hand, without a notion of a down trend, Jupiter (Brihaspati) driven persons eventually lose out – either overconfident or too lazy to fight the battles. Jupiter gains in the beginning, the end may be okay with a good Moon combination; but not anywhere close to how it began. Obesity and laziness are Jupiterial trends that can destroy the otherwise spiritually inclined.
