What is Wealth Astrology?
Wealth, as in terms of money, is an essential commodity in our daily lives. It is needed to get us our basic needs for survival in today’s world. In addition to that, wealth brings in a sense of social security. Money is supposedly the highest priority-driven factor these days, sometimes to the extent that we may even sacrifice our relationships for it. Hence, one of the most essential queries that astrologers frequently face is regarding wealth. Wealth astrology or wealth horoscope is probably the most sought-after aspect of all time. Your prospects regarding wealth and your finance predictions can be best explained from your birth chart, which calls for a sound understanding of the birth chart or horoscope with respect to Vedic Astrology.
Planets, Zodiac Signs, and HousesThe birth chart happens to be the frozen image of the sky at the exact moment of your birth. The main elements that constitute a birth chart are planets, signs, and houses. Planets represent the primary drives, and the urges found inside each one of us. In short, they represent the “what” as in the type of energy expressed. They do not force us to be; they merely represent what we already are. The catch about planets in astrology is that they can relate to one another. These relationships reflect how our basic drives also relate to one another. Signs or zodiac signs determine the style in which any planet manifests because they give a distinction to our basic drives and urges. They represent the “how”, as in how the energy is expressed. The houses are usually the invisible divisions in the sky but are visible on our birth chart. The houses represent the “where” as in the areas of life where the energy resides. There are twelve houses, each one depicting various aspects of our social world. They give us an indication of what kind of experiences we have had with each house and our particular view of the social world around us. We get a clue on how we approach such areas of our lives.
The Birth ChartOver the millennia, astrologers had developed a system whereby the heavens are divided into twelve equal segments known as the zodiac signs, taken as a fixed backdrop. The astrological or zodiac sign’s name corresponds to the dominant constellation that is located in each of the segments. The astrologers also used a geocentric or earth-centred chart with the sun and other planets revolving around the earth. The point at the eastern horizon is called the Ascendant because it is the point that is rising or ascending from the horizon as the earth turns. It is from the Ascendant that the houses are being numbered from one through twelve. Just as there are twelve zodiac signs, there are also twelve houses.
What are the indications of Wealth in the birth chart/horoscope?Once the birth chart is studied, the indications of wealth are understood and made very clear. The primary houses that are concerned with wealth are the 2nd, 9th, 10th and 11th houses. The 2nd house depicts accumulated wealth as ancestral wealth, savings and bank balance. The 10th house portrays wealth generated through employment and other sources. The 11th house reflects profit. A few houses may not have a direct bearing, but nothing is possible without them. Such is the Ascendant or Lagna, representing our physical existence and the 9th house, which means fortune or luck. In Vedic Astrology, many combinations and yogas are considered to determine how wealthy a person can be. The strength of these houses is checked on an individual basis. Much importance is placed on your Ascendant, and the ruler of this sign is the ruler of your entire chart. A remarkable difference in strength is seen if the Ascendant is associated with any of these houses. Horoscope as a whole becomes weak if the Ascendant or the Ascendant Lord is weak. Whereas if the Ascendant or Ascendant Lord joins with the 2nd, 10th or 11th house and their Lords, it becomes a perfect combination for Financial prosperity in Vedic Astrology.
Let us consider a few reasonable indications for wealth from a birth chart:Assessing the strength of the 2nd house.
