Astrology and Professions

Sathya Sai on Professions

You should possess both the individual and national character in order to rule the country. This is Godliness. In every action of ours, we should strike a balance between these two characters. We should judge whether these two characters are conflicting. You should tread a path such that these two characters do not conflict with each other. Many great people have sacrificed their lives in order to establish peace and prosperity in their countries. Even today such people exist in a few numbers. This is not national character. If you possess national character as well as individual character, you will succeed in business, profession or job. Even if you lose everything, you should firmly stick on to your character and ideals. Sathya Sai Baba, Man Management

Alone, Jupiter cannot give intellect, but if conjoined with Mercury, it may vivify and fertilise almost any of the higher regions of the mind, oratorical and imaginative powers, poetic and philosophical powers that expand the horizon of the mind. When afflicted by Mars, the religious side of its influence is largely spoilt.

In the region of intellect, Jupiter when in good aspect to the mental ruling planets generally gives much openness of mind, broad outlook, common sense, tact, persuasiveness and sound judgement, The mind becomes plastic, receptive fertile and sensitive. These are the essential requisites for a good teacher and professor.

In General

The nature of Saturn is to put obstruction, hindrance in the way of passing any examination, to delay it and even to deny success in it. Saturn delays, retards and hinders for no other purpose than that perfection shall be reached by all things and all men. Saturn concentrates and purifies until all impurities are vanished.

Mars has a nature similar to that of Saturn in putting obstacles and in causing delay in matters of education. But Rahu does not do much harm so far as education is concerned. It helps one in getting higher education. Again Mars is not always deleterious. Without Martial influence, there would be no courage, energy, endurance, push and go ahead spirit.

Favourable Mars gives success in examination, confers favours or scholarships from the Government. It is only when Mars is weak or is afflicted, that he causes troubles. Rahu in the 3-4-7-10th houses is auspicious for education. The Sun in the 3-4-10th house is most auspicious for education, as well as for acquiring top positions in life. Mercury in the 1-7-10th house un-affilicted by Saturn promises success in educational field. The intelligence becomes well developed and the mental ability good enough for higher education, if Mercury is un-afflicted. So, Mercury is the chief planet which controls general education and Jupiter is the planet that controls almost all the higher forms of education, professional, collegiate or professorial.


Every human being wants to live happily with good family life, good children, good Academic education, Profession, good Health, Wealth, etc. All this is achieved as per everyone’s karma and depends upon the planetary position at the Individual at the time of his birth. For getting name and fame, Jupiter’s beneficial aspect to the 3rd, 4th or 9th is essential.

Nobody can avoid Prarabdha karma; it is the karma selected to be consumed, expended in the current lifetime. But nobody need be afraid for any sort of evil effects if he is under the divine grace and divine protection of Lord Sathya Sai Baba. All evil is counteracted by the cosmic power of Lord Sathya Sai Baba.
