Jupiter Mahadasha: Effects, Antardasha, And Remedies


Have you recently hit a jackpot? Have you received that social recognition in recent times which you were yearning for? Were you are blessed with a healthy kid and promoted at the same time with a good appraisal? Then it’s your lucky time because Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system is shining at you in its exalted position. This phase is called Jupiter Mahadasha. However, if it’s in debilitated position or if paired with Rahu and Ketu, then it can lead to equally destructive consequences like the loss of property, wisdom and health issues. 

Effects of Jupiter Mahadasha?

This is a phase which lasts for 16 years. The period is known as Vimshottari Dasha. Besides, it can be a beneficial or malefic time period depending on the position of Jupiter. Despite this, these 16 years are the most auspicious time in your life because even hardships will guide you to the right path. Jupiter is a Guru, the teacher. During Jupiter Dasha, a person attains luck, knowledge, wisdom, gains, education, learning, teachers, philosophy, religion, reputation, etc. You can take up and succeed in higher-level exams like IAS or medical under the purview of Jupiter. Similarly, it can lead to destructive thoughts and mental disturbances if it combines with Rahu or any other malefic planets. However, if your Jupiter is stronger than even Rahu may not be able to influence it. 

Let’s see the effects of Jupiter on human life.

  1. You will turn towards spirituality and religious activities.
  2. Devote your time to worshipping deities and obey Brahmins.
  3. It makes you mature and wiser.
