Atma Karaka or Amatya Karaka - If Sun, Mercury or Venus becomes person's Atma Karaka or Amatya Karaka, then things can be more prominent to become a Media Professional as these planets represent creativity, talents and interests.
Mahadashas - But as always, dashas will activate houses or planets and person will have realization at that time to take up Media as Career.
Example Chart – Who else but Amitabh Bachchan’s chart!!!
- Ketu in Ascendant and Rahu in 7th house – It makes him good at acting and throwing an illusion at masses.
- But his chart’s main strength is 8th house of serving other people where he has 4 planets –
- 8th house – Most intense and dark house. He became a superstar by playing roles of Anti-Hero, the one who has anger against society and wants to change (8th house) things.
- Virgo – A sign of perfection and as we hear from media, he remained a perfectionist professionally throughout. As they say, he is Director’s Actor. Give his dues and he will give the perfect job which any Director would love to receive. He remained very professional and practical about his work.
- Sun – The Creator itself. His Atma Karaka
- Venus – Represents Creativity.
- Mercury – Represents Skills, Talents and interests. Mercury is also his 5th house lord and Amatya Karaka.
- Mars – 3rd house and 10th house lord.
- So, if we see all planets related with creativity and house lords of creativity came together in 8th house of serving other people.
- Venus was debilitated but it was receiving a Neech Bhang Raaj Yoga due to Mercury being exalted. This yoga would help in professional life at least.
- He has Rahu in Magha and Sun-Mercury (Atma Karaka & Amatya Karaka) in Chitra. That’s how a chart which prima-facie looks like the chart of an occultist, turned out to be chart of a great actor. Things could have totally changed if Rahu-Jupiter were there in 8th house.
- Last but not the least, he got his major success as soon as Saturn MD started in 1971. It is because all these 4 planets in 8th house/Virgo are 5th house away from Saturn in 4th house/Taurus. So, if we make MD planet Saturn as ascendant, all 4 planets of 8th house actually fall in 5th house and gave him results of 5th house of creativity, arts and media. Saturn MD also made him persevere through immense hard work (sometimes working in 3 shifts at 3 different locations/city within 1 day) to get life long success.
