Prominence of Karakamsa, Atmakaraka and Visha Yoga in Christ's chart

Jesus Christ has been worshipped as the most sacred figure in the world for the last two millennium. His teachings and preachings have mesmerized the millions of people across the world. His ideals of love, compassion and tolerance have been accepted world wide. Swami Vivekananda has rightly cited him as a source of strength and epitome of perfection.

On the eve of Christmas, Ganesha would like to analyse the birth chart of the great soul and compare the same with Indian greats.

In Jesus Christ's chart, Jupiter becomes the Atmakaraka planet and placed in the Capricorn Navmansa. Hence Capricorn becomes the Karakamsa in his chart. The placement of Ketu, Saturn and Jupiter in the Karakamsa indicates a sacred soul or a Tapaswi.

The malefic planets like Saturn and Ketu in Karakamsa can easily inspire any person to renounce the world and dedicate himself in service of the humanity and showing them the way to salvation or Moksha.

The Atmakaraka is Jupiter the planet of Gyan that is also causing Hamsa Yoga and Gajakesari yoga showing his mental and moral qualities, and his intellectual and spiritual attainments.

Atma means the soul and karaka means significator. Atmakaraka is the significator of the soul's desire. According to the Vedic philosophy, a soul is reborn because it has desires that were not fulfilled in the previous lives and it is born again to get another opportunity to satisfy them. What are these desires? Will they be fulfilled or will you struggle with them? This is revealed by the Atmakaraka planet.

Jupiter as Atmakaraka always gives person a hunger for the Atmagyana (knowledge of self) and it is found in many of the great saints. In Lord Krishna's chart Jupiter is Atmakaraka and placed in the Sagittarius Navmansa. Prophet Mahamud also had Jupiter as Atmakaraka. In Gautam Buddha's chart Atmakaraka Sun is placed in the Sagittarius Navmansa. In Adi Shakracharya's chart Atmakaraka Saturn placed with Jupiter in the Navmansa. So Jupiter as Atmakaraka or Atmakaraka's association with Jupiter leads a person to occult, philosophy and divine knowledge.

There is other striking similarity in great saints, which is Moon's association with Saturn. Moon-Saturn conjunction is generally called a Poisonous Combination or Visha Yoga. All the spiritual leaders have Moon-Saturn association in one or other way. Lord Krishna, Lord Buddha, Adi Shankaracharya has Moon-Saturn opposition whereas Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda has Moon-Saturn conjunction which is also present in Jesus Christ's chart.

The Moon symbolizes our mind, and the mind is interacting with our senses to define what is happening to our body. Saturn is the planet of discipline, which initially creates within us the faculty of discrimination and division between the self and the rest of the Whole, but when the schism is dissolved, and oneness restored through our own efforts and attitudinal changes, the higher character of Saturn can be tapped into. So we can see the acute level of introspection in the lives of all these great saints that has changed their lives drastically.
