Conditions for social connections
What leads to someone becoming active on social media and getting recognized?
Are there certain indications in a birth chart which make an individual gravitate towards connecting with a large group and networking?
If yes, how would they be wanting to connect and on what subject?
And, how and when do these conditions get activated? Is there a right time for the theme to manifest?
Does Jyotish or Vedic Astrology indicate potential of such experiences coming about in an individual’s life. Every chart is unique.
I became curious about this theme and started scanning for any well known examples.
Lets get social through this article.
The Internet and Social Media
Example : Zoella aka Zoe Elizabeth Sugg
Sugg was working as an apprentice at an interior design company when she created her blog, “Zoella”, in February 2009.
By the end of the year it had a thousand followers and as of September 2015 it has received over 540 million total visits. The fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog expanded into a YouTube channel in 2009.
Below is the birth chart from Astrodatabank.
Disclaimer. The birth chart is from a public source and hence not completely verified.
Does the chart show inherent potential – Let us take a look at the main D1 birth chart:
Static potential in the birth chart
Ascendant or Lagna and its ruler
Zoella has a Pisces Lagna and the Lagna ruler is Jupiter placed in the 4th house of home. Jupiter exchanges signs with Mercury, the 4th lord placed in the Lagna. This gives a Raja Yoga for success.
This 1-4 exchange or a parivartana yoga is one of the powerful ways of graha association and it shows an inclination towards home and home related aspects for the individual.
Mercury in the lagna will make the individual eager to communicate.
Jupiter is the 10th ruler of career too. There is also a 4-10 exchange suggesting a focus on a profession which is home related or conducted from home.
Jupiter gets strength being in its own sign of Sagittarius in the Navamsa which gives it further strength.
From the Chandra Lagna, the theme repeats. Moon as the 4th lord goes to the lagna and Saturn as the 10th lord aspects the 4th house.
11th house of social network and community
One of the meanings of the 11th house is that of social and friend circle. A heavy concentration of energy through Placement or aspect in this area, means the native experiences such themes at an appropriate dasha or planetary period begins.
In her case, Saturn, Mars and Venus along with Rahu -Ketu (which act as amplifying agents) are connected with the 11th house.
Saturn is placed strongly as the ruler of the 11th house in its own sign along with an exalted Mars (2nd and 9th ruler), forming a strong Dhana Yoga for wealth.
Saturn gets strength being Vargottama or in the same sign in the Navamsa which gives it further strength.
Moon, as the 5th lord, gives Dhana Yoga and is exalted in the Navamsa.
On the challenging side, Venus is debilitated in the Navamsa.
Feb 2009: Venus – Saturn Period
Interior Designing: Zoe begins her career as an interior designer in the major period of Venus, sub period of Saturn.
Venus as the major period is likely to bring about all things Venus like. Including artistic inclinations.
From the Chandra Lagna, Venus and Saturn are in the 10th house of career aspecting the 4th house of home. Venus as the natural karaka or significator of all things artistic and luxury confirms the interior designing route.
Social Media Presence:
What begins immediately, is the activation of the 11th house with Venus and Saturn placed there. They are with Rahu the natural karaka for space and all things innovative including the internet.
Rahu gives overnight mass fame.
The picture starts forming.
Debut Novel: Interestingly, she also authors her first book in Nov, 2014. The period: Venus – Ketu.
Ketu gives the result of the 5th house. One of its meanings is that of authorship. Venus aspects the 5th house.
This by no means is a full analysis, however demonstrates how the activation of time periods can bring social media presence in ones life.
I am still open about how a debilitated Venus can bring such a success however in this case it does seem to.
Thank you for patiently reading and for your constructive feedback and insights.
