“Dejected” – Placements in Astrology that makes you feel dejected


The English word – Dejected is defined as someone who is very unhappy because of a certain disappointment. In life – there are moments of unhappiness – moments of disappointments. Failure in business, failure in relationships, failure in family relations, failure in career – the source of feeling unhappy or dejected is Failure.

Mohan asked “Which astrological planet or entity is responsible for feeling dejected in life?”

I smiled and said “Mohan – you have asked a beautiful question – I will answer.”

We are born again in this human world because of our desires. Depending on the quality of our desires – our birth happens. After we take birth – it is our desires that continue to drive us. The whole story of human life is the story of desires – desires are many and when one desire is fulfilled – a new desire is born! First you desire to find a beautiful woman – then you desire to marry her – then once married – you desire to have children – then once you have children – you desire to attain certain things for your children – once you attain those things – you desire to see your children attain success – then you desire for their marriage – then you desire to see your grand children – then you desire to spend time with your grand children – then you desire that all your children take care of you when you become very old – and then when you are dying – you desire to have a successor who would carry forward your lineage – so the cycle of desires continues – after you are dead – you still have many new or old unfinished desires that drive you towards a new birth cycle!

So at the very root of human birth and rebirth is Desire. And since life never comes with a promise of fulfilling all your desires – you are bound to face disappointments whenever your desire remains unfulfilled! And these disappointments eventually makes you feel dejected! So you see – Desire is the cause of our pain, suffering and disappointments that makes us feel dejected.

“In astrology – which entity signify desire?”

Rahu. Rahu is what drives you crazy – the other name for Desire is Rahu! And why Rahu is the other name for desire? Because Rahu or Desire is born out of ignorance!

The very idea that if I become a rich man then I will be happy is the outcome of your ignorance. The very idea that if I find a beautiful woman then I will be the most luckiest person is the outcome of your ignorance. There are millions of men who have found beautiful women – ask them and they will share their miserable stories with you. The very idea that if I become immortal is the outcome of your ignorance. Reminds me of Alexandra the Great. There is a story about Alexander the Great, that he was in search to find something which can make him immortal. Everybody is in search of something like that, and when Alexander is in search, he will find it — he was such a powerful man. He searched and searched, and once he reached to the cave where some wise man has told him that, “If you drink the water of that cave — there is a stream in the cave — you will become immortal.” Alexander must have been foolish. All Alexanders are foolish, otherwise he should have asked the wise man whether he had drunk from that stream or not. He didn’t ask; he was in such a hurry. And who knows? — he may not be able to reach the cave, and before he dies… so he rushed.

He reached to the cave. Inside it, he was very happy: crystal clear the water was there; he had never seen such a water. And he was going to drink the water… suddenly a crow who was sitting in the cave said, “Stop! Don’t do it. I have done and I am suffering.” Alexander looked at the crow and said, “What are you saying? You have drunk, and what is the suffering?” He said, “Now I cannot die and I want to die. Everything is finished. I have known everything that life can give. I have known love and I have grown out of it. And I have known success; I was a king of crows, and now I am fed up, and I have known everything that can be known. And everybody I knew has died; they have gone back to rest, and I cannot rest. I have tried all efforts to commit suicide, but everything fails. I cannot die because I have drunk from this condemned cave. It is better that nobody knows about it. Before you drink, you meditate on my condition — and then you can drink.” It is said Alexander for the first time thought about it, and came back without drinking from that cave and that stream.

Life will be simply unbearable if there is no death. Love will be unbearable if there is no opposite to it. If you cannot separate from your beloved it will be unbearable; the whole thing will become so monotonous, it will create boredom. Life exists with the opposites — that’s why it is so interesting.

But people continue to live in ignorance and it is this ignorance that makes them believe that if they become immortal – they will find eternal happiness but look what the crow says to Alexander – “Stop – don’t drink the water – because I drank and now I am suffering – I will now never die and I am suffering.”

This is what happens my fellows – all that you desire for – becomes the cause of your misery. You desired for a beautiful woman – you got her – and then what happened – you start suffering because of her. You wanted to earn millions of dollars – you earned and then what happened – you got more enemies, more jealousies, more backstabbing, more fears and more insecurities! Always remember – a man who has got a very fat bank balance and many properties is more insecure than a man sleeping on the street – because he has nothing to lose – he is a Fakir!

So now – Mohan, I will share certain placements in chart that bring disappointments and the feeling of being dejected in life.

Rahu in 4th house, Rahu in 1st house, Rahu in 7th house, Rahu in 10th house – these are the most significant placements of Rahu that can bring certain failures in life – disappointments that would make you feel totally dejected in life. Additionally when Moon is with Rahu in the center houses of 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th – then definitely – the person experiences certain mental issues and at some stage of life may need some medical help. Rahu in center houses makes you a pucca Rahuish person. And when you are driven by Rahu – then you tend to become more and more restless because there are so many desires – so many illusions that you have nourished within you that these illusions and desires eventually lead you to disappointments and disappointments brings on the feeling of being dejected in life.

The only savior to such difficult placements of Rahu is Shri Guru – Jupiter. If Jupiter is exalted in your chart then you may find some spiritual guru to guide you and to help you overcome the many miseries that Rahu – meaning your desires bring in your life.

Always remember – whenever your desire is fulfilled – you start suffering. That is why the divine master says – “Think before you desire a thing. There is every possibility that it will be fulfilled, and then you will suffer.” That’s what happens to a rich man: he was poor, then he desired riches, and desire and desired and now it is fulfilled. Now he has become a millionaire. But now he is unhappy, now he is crying and weeping and he says, “My whole life has gone accumulating worthless things and I am unhappy.!” But this was his desire. If you desire knowledge, it will be fulfilled; your head will become a great library, many scriptures. But then in the end you will weep and cry and scream, “Only words and words and words, and nothing substantial. And I have wasted my whole life.”

There was one famous Godman – he was very famous in India and he preached for 32 years – and then one day he realized that instead of spending 32 years in preaching people – if he would have spend those 32 years for his own spiritual growth then he may have attained Nirvana – spiritual enlightenment. Remember – you cannot transform people into Buddhas – many have tried and all have failed miserably. Because the truth is that you can transform yourself and nobody else. You can dive within your being and attain self-realization. You can bring transformation within you. However you cannot transform others. You can become an inspiration for others to transform – but you cannot transform others. That’s why the great Sufi Saint Rumi says – When I was clever I was trying to change others. When I became wise – I started to change myself.

In your path and in your spiritual journey – many of them – especially our family members – especially the elder family members will try to ridicule you – they will try to belittle you – they will insult you – they will try to pull you back by referring to your past life mistakes – but let me tell you – all of these instances and pains are the test of your life. Always remember God tests those whom he loves the most. So all the insults and offending comments that you receive from your family members is to test your strength, test your faith in God. Always remember when you start transforming – when start progressing on your spiritual path – many people will try to pull you back – many people will try to cause much disturbance in your life – many people will try to ridicule and demotivate you – this is how God works – God will put you on more difficult tests as you move closer to God – this is how it happens my fellows – this is the way of its happening. And when you don’t give up – when you continue to walk on the path of devotion, path of love – that is when a day comes when God comes in search of you – when the Guru comes in search of you – and that is the most beautiful moment of your life – that is when the melting happens – then is when you experience ONENESS and then there is no looking back – the road is clear and you are ready to walk!

Always remember – whenever you start doing something good for yourself as well as for the society – you will have to face many negative men and women who will try to stop you – but it all depends on how strong is your faith – it all depends on how deeply you believe in yourself – it all depends on how much inner growth has happened within you – it all depends on how much efforts you have been taking towards your inner growth.

From the very beginning of time – goodness had to face many obstacles and sufferings from cheap ignorant fellows. Sai Baba was harassed by some local villagers of Shirdi. Akalkot Swami Samarth was harassed, Jesus was crucified, Prophet was forced to leave Mecca, Lord Rama was forced to prove his wife’s purity, Lord Krishna has to face insults from the Kauravas and the list in unending – the essence of the matter is that whenever you start transforming for good – whenever you start doing good for the society – you will have to face many oppositions and hurdles but you must never give up – you should continue with your mission – you should remain focused on your goal. Neem Karoli Baba used to say – that there are people who get exactly what they want . You think they are the lucky ones but they are NOT. The lucky ones are those who do what they are meant to.

And so if you are a goodhearted fellow – if you are walking on the path of goodness, path of devotion, path of love then please continue walking – because that’s why you are born – to do what you are meant to.

Love to all my close followers. Stay blessed and continue to meditate and chant every day. “Aum Ram Krishna Hari.”

Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
