Jupiter & Saturn: The Jovian Years Demystified
The first approximation of Jupiterian transit in the zodiac gives 12 years while that for Saturn is 30 years. The lowest common multiple for these two figures is 60, which is the total period of the jovian cycle.
Let us study the jovian years keeping this cycle in mind, and the correction that it needs as this is an approximation.
What is the implication of Jupiter and Saturn being in trikoṇa, kendra or such bhāva from each other.

  • Dhana Kāraka Workshop

    Śrī Jagannāth Center announces its first workshop in the study of Dhana Yoga. This workshop shall lay the foundation for the study of wealth and career directions. There are three pivots to the study of life and these are the three charts – lagna, sūrya and chandra chakra. The role played by each of these charts is to be examined in the first day of this two-day workshop. On the second day, we examine the role of Devaguru Bṛhaspati as the kāraka. It is interesting that all three sattva guṇa planets – Sun, Moon and Jupiter play such an important role in life.
