When we talk about search engine in World Wide Web and other online technologies, no name comes to the mind other than the gigantic Google. Google was developed in 1996 by two Stanford PhD students by the names of Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Larry Page was born on March 26th, 1973 in Michigan. His father, Dr. Carl Victor Page, was a Computer Science professor at Michigan State University. Larry had a strong interest in computers all through his life, and his father did his best to encourage him. Larry Page met Sergey Brin while working on his PhD at Stanford University. Brin was born in August of 1973 in Moscow, Russia. Google was initially denominated Backrub. Google started out using the sub domain http://google.stanford.com, but registered the domain www.google.com on September 15, 1997. On September 7, 1998, they officially incorporated their company as Google Inc.
Google was officially born on September 7, 1998 as per a post on the Google Help, at Menlo Park, California. Ganesha examines the birth chart of google.
Birth Chart of Google
As per Vedic Astrology System, Google was born with Cancer Ascendant. In Google's chart, lord of the 2nd house of finance i.e. Sun is placed in Cancer, Lord of the Ascendant i.e. Moon is placed in Capricorn, lord of the 7th house of partnership and lord of the 8th house of research i.e. Saturn is placed in Aries, lord of the 10th house of career i.e. Mars is placed in Gemini, lord of the 3rd house of projects i.e. Mercury is placed in Leo. Hence, these are forming circle of exchange, which indicate that Google work is related to searching, analyzing, ordering and sorting, this planetary combination has also given original and heterogeneous activities in projects and service of Google. Ganesha feels that Lord of the 10th house of career i.e. Mars is placed in 12th house of overseas with Venus in sign of Mercury (signifying publishing, advertising, intelligence, publishing, knowledge, wit intuition, memory, logic and writing), which indicates that Google is a project based company with a lot of initiatives.
Ganesha feels that Jupiter (significator of religiousness, knowledge, advisor, optimism, perpetuation of established codes, trust and wisdom) is occupying its own sign in 9th house (house of fortune, foreign affairs, research and purity of mind) and Ketu (significator of analysis) is placed in 8th house (house of hidden nature and secrecy), which indicates business related to search engine. Google also changes his homepage image with every festival. Ganesha feels that Venus (significator of attachments to things, love, refined and polished things) is placed in 12th house with lord of the 10th house of career i.e. Mars in Gemini sign, which indicates that Google is very user friendly and is excellent in searching and extracting information (which is signify by Mercury).
Ganesha feels that in Google's chart, Moon (significator of mental condition, basic, nourishing and thinking) is placed in 7th house with Neptune in Capricorn sign (signifies hard work and moving forward), which indicates that it gives attention to all small things and detailed informations and gives good quality search results. Ganesha observes that lord of the 10th house of career i.e. Mars (significator of courage and energy) is aspecting 3rd house by its 4th house aspect and is aspecting Natal Moon by its 8th aspect, which indicates that Google is always ready for new challenges with full of energy, creative ideas, we can see Google comes with original products e.g. Gmail, Google Adsense, Google Docs & Spreadsheets, AdWords - Web advertisers, Google Labs, Google Apps Premier Edition, Google Video, Google Groups, Google Maps and Google Earth.
As per Mundane Astrology System, lord of the 6th house (house of worker, employees and working classes) i.e. Jupiter is placed in 9th house of overseas and Jupiter is star of Saturn, which indicates that Google has huge employees from all over the world. Google's employees are very energetic, sound and creative as 6th house is aspected by Mars in its 7th aspect. Sometimes, employee may feel heavy work load and may work overtime as Saturn is placed in 10th house of career.
Ganesha feels that lord of the Ascendant i.e. Moon is in star of Moon and is aspecting Ascendant by its 7th house aspect, which have given popularity to Google. Ganesha feels that it is so popular Search engine because it is very simple to operate and always ready to help its costumers. Looking at planetary strength Ganesha feels that Google is not merely a simple search engine but it is also powerful than other equivalent power search engines e.g. Yahoo and MSN and many others.
Ganesha feels that lord of the 10th house of career i.e. Mars is aspecting by its 8th house to 7th house of partnership and lord of the 7th house i.e. Saturn is in sextile aspect with Mars, due to this planetary position Google entered into partnerships with NASA Ames Research Center in 2005 and On 4th October 2005, Google also entered into a partnership with Sun Microsystems, during this period transiting Jupiter was passing through 3rd house and was in trine aspect with 7th house of partnership. In addition, transiting Saturn, which is lord of the 7th house was passing through Ascendant and was aspecting 7th house by its 7th aspect. In 2006, Google and News Corp.'s Fox Interactive Media entered into a $900 million agreement to provide search and advertising on the popular social networking site, MySpace, during this period transiting Jupiter was passing through 4th house and was aspecting lord of the 7th house of partnership i.e. Saturn as well as 10th house of career by its 7th aspect.
Google has also been criticized by advertisers regarding its inability to combat click fraud, when a person or automated script is used to generate a charge on an advertisement without really having an interest in the product. Industry reports in 2006 claim that approximately 14 to 20 percent of clicks were in fact fraudulent or invalid, during period lord of the 8th house of scandal i.e. Saturn was passing through Ascendant over Natal Sun (significator of reputation).
Ganesha feels that in Google's chart, transiting Jupiter is passing through 6th house and is aspecting by is 5th aspect to 10th house of career as well as lord of the 7th house of partnership i.e. Saturn, is aspecting its 7th aspect of 12th house as well as lord of the 10th house of career i.e. Mars, lord of the 11th house of gain and lord of the 4th house of property i.e. Venus. Considering this, Ganesha feels that Google Company may expand its business and may buy new offices or commercial property and Google may also enter in partnership with a giant corporate company during 2008 and 2009. Ganesha sees that Google's future is very bright in coming years.
Ganesha wishes Google all the best for all its future endeavors.
