Guru Chandala Yoga - A few insights

When Jupiter transits over the stars ruled by Rahu, it results in a star-based association between the two planets. We know that it takes 12 years for Jupiter to complete one cycle around the zodiac, which means it spends about one year in each of the twelve signs.

Ardra, Swati and Shatabhisha are the stars ruled by Rahu. Among these, Ardra lies in Gemini ruled by Mercury, Swati lies in Libra ruled by Venus and Satabhisha lies in Aquarius, ruled by Saturn.

Jupiter’s transit in each of the above stars should yield Guru Chandala Yoga once every 12 years. If we consider all three stars, then this yoga should occur once every four years. In which case, religious scams should be unearthed once in every four years. Do we see that happening? Apart from this, during the 12 year period, Jupiter resides in Capricorn for a year, which is the house of debilitation for Jupiter. What do we see happening during that period?

Do each of these three stars have an equal effect of Rahu on them? It seems not. Ardra, Swati and Shatabhisha have the effect of Mercury, Venus and Saturn, respectively. Also, the three star constellations have entirely different characteristics and when Jupiter transits over these three stars, he is subject to many such varied influences. Hence, the same incidents do not always repeat themselves. Besides, the aspects of other planets on Jupiter at that point of time also influence the results. Due to the difference in their revolution periods, all planets will not be in the same position after 12 years. As a result, the exact same planetary position will never be seen again and hence the outcome is also unique. Owing to these mixed effects, the nature of the incidents that occur may vary greatly.

If we collect historical data of the past religious incidents with dates and tabulate them, then we can derive a set of definite formulas by observing planetary positions during those time periods. Based on this information we can predict future events. This can be a very good research project to undertake.
