Have you ever wondered why during the analysis of planets in Vedic Astrology, planets like Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are not taken into consideration? Whereas, in Western Astrology these planets, holds a great degree of importance. Many of you may easily say that Nikhil, it’s simply because during ancient times when Vedic Astrology originated, seers were not even aware about these planets and that’s why they didn’t incorporated these planets in their rules, guidelines and analysis. It’s only in the recent history (i.e. in 17th, 18th and 19th centuries), these planets got discovered and found their place in the Western Astrology but not in Vedic Astrology.
Well if you are thinking on these lines, then mark the words of your friend Nikhil that you are sadly mistaken. If our ancient seers knew about planets like Mercury, Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn etc, then there is no reason that they didn’t knew about other planets as well. Indeed, our ancient seers were not only aware about these planets, but they even knew about their exact speed with which they orbit around the Sun.
For instance, all Vedic Astrologers since thousands of years use the concept that Jupiter stays in 1 zodiac sign or rashi for approximately 1 year. We have 12 zodiacs signs or rashi’s and hence Jupiter takes a total of approximately 12 years (11.86 years to be precise) to complete 1 circle or to cover all 12 signs (12 Rashi’s). In fact “Kumbh Mela” which is being organized in India since thousands of years after every 12 years is based on Jupiter’s 12 year cycle only. Such is the richness of our culture and wisdom of our ancient seers. They not only knew about all these planetary movements but also celebrated specific planetary movements as festivals to derive holistic benefit out it. Indeed this is not only limited to Kumbh Mela, but the list extends to Deepawali, Holi, Karwa Chauth, Ganesh Chaturthi, Vijay Dashmi, Makar Sankranti, Mahashivratri, Navratri etc. Each of these festivals and many more has an Astrological as well as Astronomical relevance attached to it.
Similarly, all Vedic Astrologers since thousands of years use the concept that Saturn stays in 1 zodiac sign or rashi for approximately 2.5 years and hence Saturn takes a total of approximately 30 years (29.4 years to be precise) to complete 1 circle or to cover all 12 signs or rashi’s. In fact, Term like “Sade Sati” is prevalent in Vedic Culture since time eternal (Saturn’s transit on total 3 signs i.e. Moon’s sign, 1 sign previous from moon sign and 1 sign after the Moon sign. Sade means 0.5 and Satti means 7 i.e. total 7.5 years which is 2.5 times 3).
Take another example, all Vedic Astrologers since thousands of years use the concept that Moon stays in 1 zodiac sign or rashi for approximately 2.25 days and hence Moon takes a total of approximately 27 days to complete 1 circle or to cover all 12 signs or rashi’s. Indeed our ancient saints even divided Moon’s cycle into 2 parts i.e. Shukla Paksha (Bright Half) and Krishna Paksha (Dark Half). They did not stop over there, instead given several predictions (in isolation) on the basis of Moon’s Paksha.
Likewise, there are 10’s of such examples. Modern science came to know about all these facts only recently (as compared to the awareness of the Vedic culture). Please note, here your friend Nikhil gave only 3 examples imagine in Vedic Astrology we use 1000’s of such concepts to give ACCURATE PREDICTIONS. Modern Science would need at least 1000 years to match such a feat.
Crux of the matter is, when there was such a great level of precision in the calculation and awareness of our ancient Vedic seers or astrologers then it would be our sheer foolishness to assume that they didn’t knew about the existence of planets like Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
So then the question arise that why our great ancient Vedic seers or astrologers choose to deliberately omit the use of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in their rules, guidelines and analysis. Don’t stress your mind as your friend Nikhil is here to give you the exact reason behind the same but before moving ahead you need to know a few facts listed below:
Mercury takes 87.97 days or approximately 88 earth days to revolve around the Sun
Venus takes 224.7 days or approximately 225 earth days to revolve around the Sun
Mars takes 687 days or approximately 1.88 earth year to revolve around the Sun
Jupiter takes 11.86 years or approximately 12 earth years to revolve around the Sun
Saturn takes 29.46 years or approximately 29-30 earth years to revolve around the Sun
Uranus takes 84.01 years or approximately 84 earth years to revolve around the Sun
Neptune takes 164.79 years or approximately 165 earth years to revolve around the Sun
Pluto takes 248.59 years or approximately 249 earth years to revolve around the Sun
Now the answer to your friend’s Nikhil’s question raised above as well as in the title of this article is hidden in the facts listed above only.
Please note that the concept which I am about to share here is one of the rarest of the rare concept of Vedic Astrology known to only few Astrologers in the whole world. Highly accomplished nadi Astrologers who have the experience of more than 40 years, also know this fact but no one shares this rule because of the reasons best known to them only. I don’t believe in hiding knowledge, hence for the benefit of all, your friend Nikhil is sharing that greatest hidden rule here. So please fasten your seat belt and read this rule. “In Vedic Astrology or in predictive Astrology unless a planet completes at least 2 transitory rounds of the entire Zodiac (or around the Sun) in the life span of an individual, it cannot have any significant impact on the life of an individual.”
For example, if the person has a life span of 60 years, then he/she will experience approximately 5 transitory rounds of Jupiter (12 times 5 = 60) and approximately 2 transitory rounds of Saturn (30 times 2 = 60). If the person has a life span of 90 years, then he/she will experience approximately 7.5 transitory rounds of Jupiter (12 times 7.5 = 90) and approximately 3 transitory rounds of Saturn (30 times 3 = 90).
Similarly transitory rounds of any planet corresponding to any life span can be derived. I have taken examples of Jupiter and Saturn as they are the slowest moving planets out of all the planets which are taken into consideration in Vedic Astrology.
Now lets come to Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
As your friend Nikhil mentioned above that Uranus takes 84.01 years or approximately 84 earth years to revolve around the Sun. This directly means that Uranus will take approximately 84 years to complete 1 transitory round of the entire Zodiac (or around the Sun). In short, only a person having a life span of 168 years (84 times 2) will be able to experience 2 transitory round of Uranus, which is obviously not possible.
In the same fashion, only a person having a life span of approximately 330 years (165 times 2) will be able to experience 2 transitory rounds of Neptune and only a person having a life span of approximately 498 years (249 times 2) will be able to experience 2 transitory rounds of Pluto. These scenarios are obviously not possible; hence, it is primarily because of this reason ancient Vedic Astrologers did not incorporated Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in their rules, guidelines and analysis.
