Jupiter is the greatest benefic among all planets in Vedic Astrology. Jupiter owns Sagittarius and Pisces signs. Both of them are dual in nature but Sagittarius is fiery and Pisces is watery.
Atmakaraka is the planet which has highest degrees in any sign in a birth chart. It’s the planet suggesting mission of a birth. Atmakaraka placement in the subtler ninth division of radix chart suggests some pronounced tendencies for various nativities.
Two such placements i. e. Atmakaraka in Sagittarius and in Pisces have intrigued me for some time and I have kept observing them in all charts I have found. Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra is the classic treatise by sage Parashara and Jaimini Sutras were written by his pupil Jaimini. Both of them suggest that Atmakaraka placement in Sagittarius suggests a fall from a conveyance or a height. They also suggest that Atmakaraka in the Pisces suggests a native doing meritorious deeds and then getting final emancipation.
In many horoscopes I have studied so far, I have observed that Sagittarius placement suggests role models. Sagittarius is the ninth sign. Ninth house is house of Dharma(religion.) Sagittarius is the fiery sign which inspires change in society for greater good and it is exuberant. It’s office of Jupiter. The placement suggests many religious leaders or leaders who carry forward spiritual values.
Pisces is not only a watery sign but also the final sign in Moksha or liberation signs. It suggests end of all things. In most mythologies deluges suggest end of times. Pisces is a more relaxed sign of Jupiter and apart from emancipation also suggests dreams, visions, meditation and parenting. Pisces placement of Atmakaraka suggests some ripe souls who are inclined to do meritorious deeds and when radix chart also supports they might become cultural icons.
