Guru Graha Shanti Puja – An Effective Remedy for Jupiter
Jupiter is the natural benefic planet and, in fact, the most benefic planet out of the nine planets in the solar system. It controls 5 houses – the 2nd, 5th, 9th, 10th and 11th houses. The 2nd house is about family life & wealth; 5th house is about art, creativity & children; the 9th house is about Gurus, teachers, good deeds in the current lifetime, higher intelligence & relationship with father; 10th house is about the work environment, career, respect & social standing; and the 11th house is about gains. In addition to this, Jupiter also rules relationships and marriages, which are related to the 7th house.
Jupiter is the planet of the highest thinking, principles, ethics, philosophy and law. Thursday is the day associated with Jupiter, and ‘3’ is its number. This is a very spiritual planet that also provides material fulfilment. A good placement of Jupiter bestows the aspects of all the five houses it rules, plus the 7th house fulfilment.
Natural malefic will give you a difficult ambience. Natural benefic will give you a conducive environment. Ambience means the feel-good factor you always have. The first criteria to see how the planet is operating is by seeing the houses that it rules, the house it is placed in, nakshatra and the nakshatra lord. If Jupiter is in the 8th house in the nakshatra of 6th, 8th or 12th lord, then dasha can create havoc in life.
