It is a common principle observed in Vedic Astrology that whenever Sun transits through Sagittarius and Pisces, this period of Sun transit is not considered auspicious period for marriage. Similarly when Jupiter transits through Leo, it is also not considered favourable period for marriage. So combining above astrological principles, it is clear that transit of Jupiter in the sign of Sun and transit of Sun in the sign of Jupiter are not prosperous for happy married life. When Jupiter is in conjunction with Sun, Jupiter gets combust and this period of transit also affects marriage life of a person.
Above astrological principles indicate the rule of combustion. Whenever above mentioned transits are observed, Jupiter gets combust and good qualities of Jupiter are extinct and do not remain effective. Beneficial qualities of Jupiter are subdued in presence of Sun. Jupiter represents family life, honesty, prestige, virtue, development, devotion, progeny, education, wisdom etc. So when Jupiter is in state of combustion under influence of Sun, these qualities of Jupiter remain inside and do not shine out properly and become ineffective in the life of a person. These qualities of Jupiter are very essential for happy and prosperous married life of a native and therefore auspicious period for marriage is not preferred when Jupiter is under influence of Sun as mentioned above.
These principles are partially observed by all astrologers while considering auspicious period for marriage. This principle is true because beneficial quality of Jupiter is essential for marital life of a native. But practically it is observed that relationship of Jupiter and Sun as mentioned above is not found so negative and harmful as it is observed in principle. But in experience it is observed that good quality of Jupiter is badly hampered by North Node.
Jupiter is the highest beneficial planet and North Node is considered the most malicious planet. Jupiter represents religion, devotion, virtue, truth, honesty, family life, straight forwardness etc. while North Node characteristic is totally contrary to quality of Jupiter shown above. Jupiter’s influence is in subjective world and spiritual matter while North Node’s influence is in objective world and materialistic matter. Effect of North Node is unpredictable and gives illusive results relating to sign in which it is placed and to planet which becomes lord of this sign.
Readers are requested to refer our article in Saptarishis Astrology Volume -7 on page 806 of December-2009 regarding effect of Nodes.
North Node represents the planet which is owner of sign in which North Node is placed. Sagittarius and Pisces are unfavourable signs for North Node. North Node in these signs gives peculiar results relating to natural characteristic of Jupiter. If North Node is placed in these signs it gives highly unfavourable results of Jupiter because in that case North Node represents
Jupiter. Therefore, if North Node is placed in unfavourable signs i.e. in signs of Jupiter, it spoils the natural quality and characteristic of Jupiter.
In this article, we will study the influence of North Node when it is placed in Sagittarius and Pisces with reference to marital happiness and family life. So when North Node is places in the signs of Jupiter, it disturbs and hampers marital happiness and family life of a person.
