Creativity and Astrology

Today I am going to talk about creativity in general and astrological combination for creative abilities. Etymologically the word creativity comes from the Latin term creo meaning to create, hence by definition creativity is the ability to transcend conventional concept, patterns, relationship or the liking  to create meaningful novel ideas, form, methods, interpretation. In simple term creativity is act of creating something new to oneself or society. Creativity starts with imagination and later it turn into tangible product (Painting, poetry, inventions etc.) or intangible object (musical composition, scientific theory, idea etc).

There has been always interest from many on how intelligence is different from creativity. Intelligence is classically defined asthe ability to acquire and utilize knowledge, Intelligent Quotient (IQ) is generally gauged by an ability to interpret information and provide solutions to same or similar problem. However creativity is the ability to create new solution to a problem by connecting information using existing knowledge. Let us see astrological aspect of creativity now.

Planets Concerning Creativity:

Venus: Fine arts, poetry, music, literature involves high level of creativity and Venus rules all these profession. Visualizing a new idea is important for creativity, 2nd house rules visual and Venus is the ruler for the same and hence Venus is the most prominent planet when it comes to creativity.

Mercury: As mentioned earlier minimum IQ is required for understanding problem and to start thinking on new idea (Imagination), in addition communication plays an important role for converting an idea into workable product. Mercury rules Intelligence, communication, research, sculpture, astrology etc.

Moon : Clear thinking and stable mind is required for translating any creative idea into workable solution.  Moon rules mind, Intelligence, mother etc.

Houses Concerning creativity:

5th house – Fifth house rules creativity, intelligence, artistic work, children, luck, poorva-punya (past life credit) etc. Venus in the 5th with benefic aspect or Venus being 5th lord and well placed or Connection of Venus with well placed 5th lord will bring in creativity.

9th house: Ninth being 5th from the 5th should also be considered for creative ability and deep understanding of concepts, 9th house rules intuition, grandchildren, religious principles, long journey etc.

Other combinations:

Though Venus and Mercury are important planets for creativity, other benefic combination of planets will decide on which field creativity will be exhibited. For example Mars is the planet for Engineering(Specifically Electrical Engineering), when Mars and Moon have connection with Venus, Mercury and 10th Bhava one will produce creative ideas on Electrical related fields. I will share detailed analysis on creativity in different fields in my next post.

Astrology and Fatalism

 

Many think that believing in astrology make one believe in fatalism and conclude that it is hindrance to progress. But this is pessimistic call, in my personal experience in this field for 40 years, astrology is other way i.e. astrology helped many individual to take better decision based on their inherent strength. To explain this with an analogy seeking astrologer’s guidance is like taking map with you during your travel which helps to reach the destination quickly with less confusion. One has to understand Karma theory to appreciate this aspect of astrology, I will touch up some portion of karma today, please refer our previous post here to know how Karma theory relates to astrology.

There are three types of Karma viz., Sanchita, Parabdha and Agami. For the present topic of interest we will consider Sanchita & Parabdha and leave Agami for now. Sanchita is stored karma based on our past acts whereas Parabdha is what we do with our present state of existence. Planetary position in the horoscope are simply indicating the karmic results that are stored based on previous karma, one can augment or minimize the past karmic results by Parabdha karma by the aid of will power.

Let me explain with a simple mathematical equation, let us consider person A is bestowed with equation 5X2+10X in one aspect of life. What outcome that person would get based on his equation is purely depend on what he substitutes to X which is complete free will of person A. Thus to conclude astrology is not about fate or destiny, it simply indicates the good or evil effects of previous karma and leaves it to man to build his future.
