Due to this planetary position, Osho Rajneesh has completed his B.A in philosophy from D.N. Jain college in Jabalpur. He cleared his M.A in Philosophy from the University of Sagar with First Class Honors. In his chart, lord of the 6th house of competition i.e. Venus is in star of Venus.

Ganesha notes that in Osho Rajneesh's chart, lord of the 10th house of career i.e. Saturn is placed in Sagittarius sign and is Vartottami. Depositor of Saturn i.e. Jupiter is placed in Cancer sign. Due to this planetary position, he got a job as a professor at Sanskrit College in Raipur in 1957. In 1958, Osho Rajneesh was appointed Professor of Philosophy at the University of Jabalpur. During this period, transiting Jupiter was passing through 6th house of employment and was in trine aspect with 10th house of career.

His most significant meditation techniques are today known as "OSHO Dynamic Meditation", "OSHO Kundalini Meditation", "OSHO Nadabrahma Meditation" and "OSHO Nataraj Meditation".
Osho Rajneesh began to initiate seekers into Neo-Sannyas or discipleship, a path of commitment to self- exploration and meditation. As per Phaladeepika
, when four or more planets are placed in one house, they make a person Sanyasi. Ganesha notes that in Osho Rajneesh's chart, Stellium of Mercury, Saturn, Venus, Mars and Moon, is placed in 8th house, which is forming Sanyas Yoga. Lord of the Ascendant i.e. Venus and lord of the 2nd house of finance are placed in same sign with Yogakaraka Planet i.e. Saturn, which is lord of the 9th house of luck and long distant travel. He had traveled in many countries. Ganesha notes that transiting Jupiter was passing through Capricorn sign and Aquarius sign during this period Osho Rajneesh went to Kathmandu, Nepal, Greece - on 30 days tourist visa, Uruguay, Jamaica and Portugal, he also visited 17 countries in Europe and America between 1985 and 1986, but as lord of the 4th house of motherland i.e. Sun is aspecting Ascendant, he returned to Rajneeshdham in Pune, India in 1987, which was renamed Osho Commune International in 1989.
Ganesha notes that transiting Sun was passing through 8th house over Natal Saturn, Mars, Venus, Moon and Mercury. Transiting Jupiter was passing through 2nd house i.e. Marak house. Moreover, transiting Saturn was passing through Sagittarius sign, during the second week in January. Osho Rajneesh's body became noticeably weaker and he was so physically weak that he was unable to go to Gautama the Buddha Auditorium. Osho Rajneesh left his body between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. on 19th January 1990.
A great mystic Nostradamus
had predicted three hundred years ago describing the teacher, the person who brings this massive change that he will be born in Asia. His people will wear red clothes; He will travel far and wide in his drive to uplift the suffering humanity and to bring peace to the world. He will come from the East, he will be arrested, his commune will be destroyed, flying birds will be his symbol, which his name will mean moon and Osho's real name is Rajneesh Chandra Mohan - the Lord of the Moon, this fits perfectly with Osho Rajneesh.
