Identifying setbacks in Career is very important task to do with vedic astrology readings. Sometimes, even strong horoscopes fall prey to severe setbacks in career. However, the overall strength of the horoscope does helps and it becomes much easy to overcome if lagna and/or ninth house are strong in horoscope. The role of Mars, Ketu, Saturn and lord of eighth house is very important while ascertaining the probability of setbacks in career. When these planets are having inauspicious relationships with malefic houses of a vedic horoscope – the unexpected takes place. And one remain clueless about the rational or logic behind it. Quite often, it always gets noticed after happening; while prior to it, one may not be interested in even thinking about it.
Besides professional and financial troubles, a career setback generates many additional problems. The relationships turn sour, the health starts to deteriorate and sometimes weak people may even start having suicidal tendencies. In this article, I would try to throw some light on career setbacks and also some possible measures to deal with it.
Defining Career Setback: There are different opinions and attitude adopted by people about Career Setback. Sometimes a person, who has just completed his/her education and is not getting any responses during initial period of his struggle, may take it as a career setback. And, this can be due to his requirement of job in the light of his personal responsibilities. Career Setback, when fully operational in a vedic horoscope, comes in frequent phases; thereby weakening the personal and financial strength of the person in continuous cycles. Career setbacks should actually be analyzed in respect of specific period of time; as against one or two events. If you are experiencing a continuous phase of time, when most of your endeavors being made for professional and financial betterment are either cease to take place or get obstructed in between or failed to give any fruitful results; you better be alarmed as it may be the very initial phase of career setback. The vedic astrology birth chart or horoscope of a person does have the capacity to give reasonable and advance indications in this regard. For better understanding of the matter, some horoscopes are analyzed below in the light of vedic astrology.
Example Horoscope – 1
In this vedic horoscope, the Mars is conjunct with Sun in seventh house; and also having its aspect over tenth, first and second houses of lagna chart. Exalted Jupiter in second house is also under influence of Mars. Ketu occupies ninth house and ninth lord Saturn is united with Rahu in third house. The native approached for astrology guidance on career and marriage during last phase of Jupiter/Venus bhukti. In the light of forthcoming antardasa of the Sun, he was advised to be very careful in his professional matters and also advised to postpone his marriage till completion of Sun antardasa. Notice that both Jupiter and Sun are under malefic influence of Mars, which is significantly inauspicious planet for Gemini Ascendant people. However, the native could not make up his mind in accordance and went for marriage and kept making strong endeavors for professional betterment. Unfortunately, soon after start of Jupiter/Sun period, the inauspicious impact of Mars started showing its results; first, his father expired just a month before his marriage – and spoiling the overall charm of the marriage. Thereafter, a continuous series of professional problems started surfacing in his life and ended up with loss of job within a very short notice of two months.
Example Horoscope -2
This is vedic horoscope of former Indian Cricketer, Ajay Jadeja. During Saturn antardasa in mahadasa of the Sun; the flourishing career of Ajay Jadeja was destroyed by a five year ban for alleged charges of match fixing. The ban was quashed by the court in January 2003; however, by that time, it had already caused the damage. Notice that Saturn is debilitated in twelfth house and united with third house lord Moon. The lagna lord Venus is united with Mercury; however, the union is in eighth house. Malefic lord of eighth house Jupiter is conjunct with Mars in seventh house; and both these planets are having aspect over lagna. In his Navamsha Chart, Saturn is conjunct with Mars and Rahu in eighth house. The antardasa of badly placed and debilitated Saturn not only proved fatal for the professional career; but the great player has to undergo a lot of humiliation and severe other problems in his life during the operation of inauspicious planetary dasa.
Example Horoscope -3
In this vedic horoscope, the first and eighth houses are ruled by Mars, which is debilitated in fourth house. The fourth house lord Moon is debilitated in eighth house. Exalted Sun is occupying the lagna, which provides some strength; though the union of Mercury with Sun is not desirable. Tenth lord Saturn is strong in its own zodiac sign; but weak ninth lord Jupiter (debilitated) joins Saturn in tenth house. Ketu occupied eleventh house and is under aspect of debilitated Mars from fourth house. The deterioration started in Mercury/Saturn bhukti; and by the end of this period, the native become bankrupt. His relationships, within and outside family, suffered very severely and it took the whole Mahadasa of Ketu for the native to overcome the financial and other losses happened during Mercury/Saturn Bhukti.
How to deal with Career Setback
First and foremost thing is to try maintaining your posture during unfavorable circumstances. I know, it is really difficult to exercise; but this is the most required and also the most vulnerable aspect of human being. Any severe setback makes us having doubt over our abilities and intelligence; and usually, most people try to give advice in place lending an helping hand. A minor weakness on your mental strength will allow others to manipulate, exploit and sometimes even humiliate, which may cause further damage to already problematic situation.
Second thing is to analyze the situation in the current circumstances. Find out what better can be done now; in place of wasting your time in the past, which cannot be undone now. If you are able to work out any deliberate fault of yours, which caused the damage; accept it openly before anyone else try to target you for that.
Third thing is to start working at your own, with whatever little resources are available. Under such circumstances, it would be very difficult for you to find and persuade others for help. And, that may eat a lot of time too.
Fourth and another very important thing is to keep observing the situations, attitude of other people and any co-incidences (whether positive or negative) that are taking place. You need to use your intuition and try catching the feeling of things becoming normal. The moment you are able to get the feeling; you can have some good assurance that things will start improving.
How Astrology can help in dealing with setbacks in career
Vedic astrology readings of your horoscope can help you to identify if any such indications are there in recent future for which you need to be careful about. And, simultaneously you may plan and decide in accordance with planetary period. The successful people, if you carefully observe, do have their share of problems. However, during unfavorable circumstances and inauspicious planetary period, they always control their reactions, delay or postpone their important projects/matters and wait for the auspicious phase of time. Vedic astrology readings are also very helpful when you are already suffering through career setback. Astrology readings can help you by giving you an idea about the length of unfortunate period. In addition to this, the astrology readings of your horoscope are also helpful in diluting the inauspicious impact of planets by simple remedies and gemstone therapy.
