Vedas declare that the creation on this
earth is done with "Pancha Bhoota's" or the five elements viz Air,
Fire, Water, Earth and Space. The first four factors are known to all, as
they can be felt, seen, tasted and used. What is meant by space or 'Akasa"?
It can be taken, as all the subtle forms of energy like Electricity,
magnetism, Gravity, and other forces known and unknown, which bring about
stability in creation and its activation.
The zodiacal signs and planets represent these elements and qualities. The
Vedic seers understood this fact and classified the signs and planets
according to their innate nature. The sign Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are
fiery in nature so also are the Sun and Jupiter. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
are earthly signs so also is the planet Mars. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are
airy signs and Mercury is also airy planet. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are
watery signs and so are the planets Venus and Moon.
Saturn, Rahu and Ketu represent the akasa or subtle forces and Rahu and
Ketu are referred as shadowy planets.
Persons who are born in fiery signs
exhibit Vitality, Command, and
leadership qualities. They are assertive and independent. Those born in Earthly
indicate stability, Care for material welfare, learn the art of
making wealth, seek power and position. They are prudent, practical and
cautious, reserved, secretive and methodical.
Hence when majority of the planets occupy earthly signs business is the
best option. Building, Mining, and all slow and laborious jobs requiring
time labor and perseverance go people born in earthly signs. Airy signs are
connected with the mind or mental experiences. They are cheerful, gentle
amicable, courteous and refined human beings. They have good intellect and
fertile imagination. They are idealistic, artistic, good musicians, dancers,
inquisitive and well informed. These people exert much and suffer nervous
troubles. All professions where mental exertion is more, then the physical
suit them best. Musicians, accountants, artistes, poets, lawyers, reporters,
newsreaders, lecturers, scientists, aviators and astronaughts are some of
the professions falling in airy signs.
The mind of persons born in watery sign
contemplative, sensitive, and assimilative. When majority of the planets are
posited in watery signs the native becomes very sensitive, timid, psychic
and often lack energy. Watery signs favor all employment's connected with
Liquids, Shipping, Breweries, Textile, fisheries, Milk dairies, soft drink
manufacturer's, Medicines, water sellers, Oil merchants etc come under these
The Vedic seers grouped the signs in three more categories as
Movable, Fixed and Dual.
The Movable signs
exhibit enterprise, enthusiasm, ambition,
forcefulness, and they are busy people averse to subordination. They are
Independent and ideally suited to hold responsible positions. They are bold
with an indomitable spirit. They are popular and get name, fame and
appreciation for their ability to execute a plan quickly.
exhibit doggedness, persistence, hard work, difficult to
convince, Reliable, patient dogmatic, seekers of solitude and fond of
comforts. If the third cusp falls in fixed sign they will be rigid in
attitude. They dislike travel. The jobs most suited to them are government
service, employment in old firms, or where there is no hurry. They don't go
out and grab opportunities. They are slow and plodding and succeed
People born in dual signs
are like Pendulum who have fluctuating
and flexible nature. They are intellectuals, sympathetic and sensitive. They
can be inconsistent, indecisive, vacillating and restless. Their general
tendency is to drift and dream. They have no set purpose. They are averse to
fights. Nothing appeals to them permanently. They tend to wander aimlessly
