Birth details are mentioned below. 10 house should be under benefic influence and 10 lord should be strong and well placed to see rise in the career. Dasha(Planetary Period) should be strong to support rise in career.


10 MAY 1986

10.15 AM






Beginning and Rise in Career

  • Rahu – Mercury Period she began her career.
  • Her Job Profile – She was doing a job in Nestle company selling some product to shopkeepers, retailers.
  • In 11 house, Rahu and Mercury are conjunct and this is the house of desires and gains. Malefic planets in 11 house gives good result and Rahu dispositor is Mars which is well placed as it is in Kendra.
  • Ascendant Lord dasha is consider benefic.
  • Both MD(Rahu) and AD (Mercury) are conjunct with 3 lord Sun. in the dasha of planet in 3 houseor 3 lord or planets making association with above house/lord one may expect native to be more courageous, adventurous as native may take risk and would love to pursue hobbies.
  • Not just Rahu and Mercury are conjunct with 3 lord Sun, but they are in fiery zodiac sign. She did what her heart said. Like she learnt engineering but didn’t do the engineering job which she learnt.

Break in Career By Astrology & Child Birth

In astrology we can know when the native may have break/change in career and also child birth. In case of career(profession) 10 house and 10 lord should be considered first. Break/Change in career can come like in Dasha of 3 house/3 lord, 12 house/12 lord, 5 house/ 5 lord or planet placed in these houses. in Dasha of planet placed in 5 house/9 house or their respective lords one may expect child birth.

Upcoming Dasha

Rahu Venus Dasha

Thought change will come and she may take a break from her career in Rahu – Venus Dasha.

Rahu – Venus Dasha

Rahu we have already considered above. To judge Rahu Dasha, we must consider its dispositor and its dispositor is Mars which is in the 7 house – house of relationship and in Navamsha Chart, Rahu is conjunct with the 7 lord Jupiter. She got involved in the relationship, and there was Ketu (AD) after Mercury (AD) and Ketu is placed in the 5 house of birth chart, house of the emotions and its dispositor is Venus the karka of relationship and marriage and in Navamsha Chart Ketu receives an aspect of 7 lord Jupiter.

Venus(AD), is too powerful to give child birth. Venus in birth chart is the 5 lord  and in Saptamsha Chart, it is placed in the 5 house.

Yes, she gave a birth to a boy in May 2014. She left job earlier in 2014, and join back the job for some days or one month (max) but could not continue to do the job as her son got some major health issues.

Child having health issues

Why her child faced major health issues. We will discuss it from her birth chart only:

Now see the chart more carefully,

  • Placement of Ketu in 5 house is generally not considered good.
  • 5 lord in 12 house is not considered good. It is placed with Markesh Moon though exalted. But it recieves an aspect of 8 lord Saturn (R) which is not good. It’s 9 lord also, so will give some respite also.
  • In Saptamsha Chart (D-7 Chart), 5 lord Mars is in 6 house and is placed with Rahu and it recieves an aspect of second lord Markesh Saturn (R).

(What happen – Her son one day all of sudden he got choked up while taking his food and his condition became critical and at one stage, he went to coma but he recovered. But his condition till current date is not good. He neither can’t understand and can’t walk. He got ill after couple of months, when he was born.

It happened in Rahu – Venus – Saturn (R) Dasha.

Saturn (R) is placed in the 6 house of birth chart and it aspects the 8 house.

When someone is running through the Dasha of 5 lord or planet placed in the 5 house and dasha of 8 lord or planet placed in the 8 house, can give chances of change of career or problem in career specially afflicted.

Rahu- Venus- Saturn(R)

See the dasha.

Venus is the 5 lord in birth chart. It means you may expect some event related to 5 house. In antar dasha of Venus, she became mother. (she became mother in the dasha of Rahu- Venus- Venus)

Promise of Child Birth and issues by Astrology:

For promise of child birth we will see the concerned house that is 5 house and 5 lord and will see the afflictions in her birth chart.

  • 5 house has ketu and its disposotor is placed in 12 house that is in own house. but its placed with markesh moon and receives aspect of Saturn (Retro) which is also the lord of 8 house.
  • Jupiter blesses the 5 house by its aspect.
  • 5 house receives aspect of lagna lord and exalted sun. (here lagna lord is in rahu ketu axis and aspect 5 house, her concern towards her children)
  • Saturn retro dasha going on and it aspects 8 house.
  • Antra dasha of 5 lord and 8 lord can bring change in career/many changes in career. (also see placements of dash lord like in 6 – 12 house and one being 5 lord and one being 8 lord also)

In D-7 Saptamsha Chart

  • Venus is placed in 5 house shows focus towards her children.
  • In D-7, Mars 5 lord is in 6 house and recieves aspect of Saturn again markesh.
  • 5 lord is in affliction as in rahu ketu axis.

In Char Dasha

From Aries dasha

  • AMK well placed in 9 house but 10 house from  running Maha Dasha GK (mercury ) , Rahu and ketu also.
  • Aries is also noisy dasha that is can be disturbing dasha and PK(Saturn ® ) comes in 8 house.
