The concepts of wealth are presented in Vedic astrology with a refined methodology. People who become rich in life possess certain qualities that help to accomplish their life goals. But one cannot overlook the element of luck as it is significant in every aspect of life. So you can't deny the fact that hard work and luck go hand in hand. These ideas are expressed beautifully in the karmic theories of Vedic astrology. It says that all our success and happiness depend on the good deeds of the previous life.
Vedic Astrology is based on the activities of seven grahas ( planets) that includes Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. Also includes two chaayaa grahas (shadow planets): Rahu and Ketu. Vedic Astrology does not include Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Out of the two planets that rule wealth and money. They are Jupiter and Venus. These planets are called as the indicators for wealth and prosperity. The houses of money in the planetary chart are 2,5,8,9,11.
The combinations of both planets( jupiter+ Venus) that rule 2nd, 11th, 5th and 9th houses will produce great wealth and the aspects of Jupiter magnifies the results of wealth and money even more. The ways of acquiring money depend on the planetary position. If this planetary combo occupies the 5th house, money can come through speculation, sports, or entertainment. If a planetary combination is in the 8th house the money may come from inheritance. Venus is the only planet that is well fitted in 12th house, will bring wealth and money. The stronger the positioning, the better the wealth.
Jupiter is the planet associated with growth, expansion, prosperity, healing, good fortune, and miracles. Jupiter regulates long-distance foreign travel, higher education, big business and wealth, religion and the law.
