Dr. Deepak Chopra was born October 22, 1946 in New Delhi, India into a family of doctors as his father was a cardiologist. He will turn 75 years old in October of 2021.
I’ve analyzed at least 50 celebrities over the last 3 years, and I find that many of them have Jupiter either conjunct the Sun or Moon and in easy aspects to their rising or vocational houses which is the 1st and 10th. This creates good luck.
I would like to start off by saying I was deeply involved with the Transcendental Meditation organization and still do TM. I’ve been a daily, twice a day, practitioner for 43 years.
I am the founder of "Inner Grace Meditiaton".
I worked for Maharishi Ayurveda Products for three and a half years from 1990 to 1993 and left the company to work for Deepak Chopra at then a small company selling his products and signing up people for his seminars.
The reason why I bring this up is I will try to be as impersonal about my interpretation as I can, but I will add just a few things here and there that are more personal as to make it more interesting.
Dr. Deepak Chopra is a very lucky man, but I knew him to be very hard working. He did not get his recognition for free. I will say this, it’s nice to start off life with a strong father figure. My father was a full-blown alcoholic who left my mother when she was pregnant with me.
My stepfather was by-polar and almost killed my mother twice in front of me. Karma is karma and for some reason I had to go through that type of environment growing up till I was eventually raised by my Italian grandparents from age 12.
My point is it helps to have a good role model for developing self-confidence. This I saw up front with Deepak. He has confidence in himself partly from a strong father figure and I’m sure his mother was wonderful also.
I worked for Deepak and his family for only 18 months.
Dr. Deepak Chopra has his Sun in Libra in both Western and Vedic astrology. He has his Moon in the healing sign of Virgo in both systems, but his rising sign is Pisces in Western Tropical and Aquarius in Vedic.
Most celebrities that I have interpreted have Venus in a strong position, Venus rules Libra. If anyone has Sun, Moon, rising and planets in Libra, they are attractive to the public of either sex.
He has Sun, Jupiter, Mars and Mercury all in Libra in the 9th house of higher education, long distance traveling, foreign languages, the house of the Guru and the house representing his father in Vedic.
This clearly shows an emphasis in his deeply philosophical nature and that he wants to communicate (Mercury) his thoughts and feelings about the bigger story of life (Jupiter) to others. The 9th house is also affiliated with publishing books.
The 9th house is the most auspicious house in the Vedic system of astrology. It’s the good luck house. Having a stellium, three or more planets together, in the 9th gives him good luck especially from Jupiter and Jupiter is aspecting his 1st house making it easy for him to fulfill his desires. And the 9th house is not being aspected by malefic planets.
Jupiter is also ruling his money houses, the 2nd and 11th and it’s aspecting his 5th house which brings past life credit or poorvapunya. He attracts money to him effortlessly from past lives of good karma. His net worth is around 150 million dollars from online sources.
In the Vedic system there are certain periods of time called Dashas that highlight a specific planet for a certain amount of time.
His Jupiter Dasha was from October of 1983 to October of 1999. This is the period that took him from his stressful role as Chief of Staff at New England Memorial Hospital to meeting Maharishi Mahesh Yogi who gave him the foundation to his successful career as a writer.
Dr. Deepak Chopra was known to drink lots of coffee and smoke a pack of cigarettes a day during his Sade Sati period. This is when Saturn runs a 7-and-a-half-year period which eventually crosses over the Moon.
This Sade Sati period is when we experience lifetimes of karma coming at us. We can lose a lot. I lost my marriage and my wife from breast cancer during my Sade Sati.
Deepak’s Sade Sati was from September of 1977 to 1985. It was in 1985 that he met the late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi the founder of the Transcendental Meditation Technique. This is when his Sade Sati period ended.
This connection would change his life forever and it’s a shame he hardly mentions his name anymore. It is the book “Return of the Rishi” that tells the story of this meeting and at least 50% of the knowledge that Deepak Chopra writes about he learned from his interactions with Maharishi and other scientists within the TM circle.
But his Jupiter combust the Sun, within 7 degrees, would cause troubles with the Guru eventually. The song by Tom Petty “I was born a rebel” shows in Deepak’s Vedic 9th house with Mars close to Mercury.
The Sun in Libra keeps him balanced but the Sun is in its fall in Libra in the 9th house of the Guru which causes problems with other teachers who are powerful. Deepak Chopra is a man of his own making and eventually the choice to leave the Transcendental Meditation Organization was going to happen.
Deepak’s deepest desire was to teach and write books about holistic healthcare and eventually other radical ideas about spirituality and the Quantum field theories of life. Maharishi wanted someone to represent Ayurveda to the West and create interest in his services. To put it honestly, they used each other.
Deepak had an audience all set up for him to start selling his first few books he wrote from Maharishi’s efforts where he built a huge organization from 1958 up until Deepak met him in 1985.
Then when “Ageless Body, Timeless Mind” hit the best sellers list in 1993, he left Maharishi and all the drama surrounding his experience there.
After the interview with Oprah Winfrey the rest is history. Blessed the being and the path he is on.
For those who know the Indian culture you have 2 marriages. Family and your spouse. Maharishi was taking care of his family and Deepak wanted to take care of his. Money becomes the steppingstone to independence and a stumbling block to enlightenment unless most of it is given away to those who desperately need it.
Maharishi became too conservative in his approach in order to reach as many people as possible. The very rigid conservative approach by MMY a Capricorn was filled with political and religious overtones. It was too confining for a soul like Deepak who has so many planets in the 9th house. The 9th house is about freedom and independence.
It is not a mistake that the person who took Maharishi’s place as the new leader of his TM organization is also a Capricorn. Capricorn can play a more traditional role and handle the conservative energy. Saturn is the natural ruler of Capricorn.
All the planets in the 9th house in Vedic are in his 8th house in Western. The 8th house is more about transformation and creates lots of change in Deepak’s life never really feeling settled in one place or vocation.
The Moon however is in Virgo in the 8th house in Vedic but in the 7th house in Western. The Moon is not bright and wanning at 16%. It is the Moon in Vedic that is one of the 2 most important places to look for recognition from the public and fulfilling desires easily.
His Moon is spoiled in the 8th house and not bright in Vedic. In Western it is in his 7th house of public recognition. The Moon is square to Uranus, which is near the 4th house cusp, the IC, and this indicates sudden residential changes in his life.
The Moon is also sextile to Venus in the 9th giving him opportunities to publish his books as Venus and the Moon are benefices. 9th house represents publishing as mentioned earlier. The Western chart with this combination is much better for support from the public.
Jupiter in my opinion becomes the blessing for him in his Vedic chart and that is why during his Jupiter Dasha he became famous. He’s written over 91 books and 21 of them were N.Y. time best sellers. That number increases monthly so maybe it’s 100 books by now.
This is due to a mutual reception between Mars and Venus. Venus in in his 10th house of vocation and Mars in the 9th house of philosophy and religion. The Guru or the teacher. He has the chart of an international traveler who teaches the public about spirituality.
Venus is the best planet in his Vedic chart because of Aquarius rising. He gets lots of attentions without trying much. The problem with having 4 planets in the 9th is going overboard with his philosophical thoughts. I have a feeling he has issues with sleeping and in his meditations with this combination. A highly active intellect.
His secretary told me when she showed up for work one day, she smelt something funny like rubber burning when Deepak drove up. He left the emergency brake on after driving to work which took him at least 45 minutes.
His wife Rita, a lovely soul, said she didn’t like him going into the kitchen to make something because he always made a mess.
I’m telling you these short bits of information so you can realize that ALL CELEBRITES, are not the perfect person everyone paints them to be. We are all human trying to live a spiritual life.
Deepak’s Moon is in Virgo in both Western and Vedic. Virgo is the sign most affiliated with healers and those working in the traditional healthcare system or in holistic healthcare practices.
Aquarius rising is the rebel who wants to do things his own way. It has humanitarian gifts and his Pisces rising in Western would have sensitivity. I did not see this in him when I got to be around his energies. He had more male energy.
He has confidence in himself. I think this comes from the Venus and Mars mutual reception in Vedic combined with the aspect from Jupiter to the 1st house.
In Western he has Mercury and Mars trine to his rising from the 8th house and this helps with communicating knowledge of spirituality since Pisces and Scorpio are dominate. Pisces rules the media and all the glamour it can bring.
I did not see a highly evolved soul thou. Remember, I have had past lives being around prophets. I was the apprentice to the old testament prophet Samuel, a direct disciple of Lord Buddha, hired by the Roman Military to spy on Jesus and bring information back to them and adored Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for making my life so much better than it could have been.
I don’t think the late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi or Deepak are enlightened. It’s a personal opinion obviously. People expected Maharishi or Deepak and other teachers from the East to be all together or enlightened but as Pundit Ravi Shankar has said, “Enlightenment is a big Joke”.
I did not see him as being interested in helping the holistic healthcare community move from A to Z. He wanted to be a famous writer and teacher to give information to the public. The rest he feels is up to us. He doesn’t even promote The Chopra Center in California. He wants to write and talk. That is, it.
That is the problem with having so many planets in one house. You become self-absorbed and the goal of God Consciousness is lost. The emissaries of light require us to help the poor and help humanity to organize with others to create more popularity in spirituality.
It has been 25 years since I worked for him. I knew that he had the biggest named Celebrities on his board of directors at one point in 1993. What happened?
Did he really work with them to form a spiritual alliance that included all holistic healthcare practitioners and all spiritual organizations to gather in meditation regardless of what type they were practicing?
We now have America spinning out of control with drugs, gun violence, racial discrimination and even hate crimes towards Asians. The pain in the collective consciousness of the world is out of control. The health of the world including his own country of India is having troubles.
We need strong leaders like Dr. Deepak Chopra and other spiritual leaders to help organize large groups of people sitting in silence together regardless of the type of meditation they are doing or whatever teachings they are following.
Celebrities are committing their own crime (karma) by not letting the public know in a big way that holistic healthcare practices are needed to have a normal functioning life.
Obviously one man is not responsible for healing the world. That is not what I am saying. What I am saying is being in the spotlight with so many connections you become responsible too humanity not for humanity.
This is a time when technology could destroy humanity. There are thousands of nuclear warheads between America, Russia and China. I agree with the great spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle who said in an interview years ago that if humanity continues the same path of insanity, humanity could destroy itself within the next 50 years.
Climate change is an environmental issue that can only be taken care of when humans learn to connect with the home of all the laws of nature so they are AWARE in the first place of their environment.
I just came back from the beach and all i smelled was Pot. I don't think that's going to bring more awareness to the world and I did see Dr. Deepak Chopra interviewing someone in regards to the Pot industry.
I think Dr. Deepak Chopra should spend more time talking about Ayurvedic Medicine and stop wasting time. Talk about his clinic in California and New York and give his empolyee's increased work.
And, he is not getting younger and many of his celebrity friends have already passed on to the other side.
Holistic healthcare practices must be encouraged by all leaders in the fields of education, religion, politics and healthcare. It will bring balance to the laws of nature and create a peaceful environment for all children and adults to grow up in.
Andrew Lessman is an example of someone who spends all of his time educating others though HSN network and his company runs on solar energy. He also gives prenatal vitamins and minerals to country's that cannot afford it. That's the kind of leader that is enlightened. Very humble man also.
How can the world change if they don’t know how to change it? Arjuna asked Krishna on the battlefield, “How does this knowledge of Yoga get lost?”. Krishna replied, “The lapse of time Arjuna”. The soul is hidden from view. Like the foundation of a house therefore easily forgotten if not experienced directly through the deep practice of meditation”.
Deepak Chopra is highly intelligent, a healer, above average author of mind/body medicine and other philosophical topics, a good father who has sacrificed so much of his time for his own family, sometimes ego centered, able to fulfill his desires effortlessly, a world traveler, good looking and a good husband.
Dr. Deepak Chopra is in the “Celebrity Spotlight”.
