Planets And Their Influence On Decision Making Capabilities

Planets And Their Influence On Decision Making Capabilities

From deciding what to eat for breakfast the next day to deciding on a career path, our life is full of decisions and is the result of those decisions. No matter how big or small, our life moves forward through our daily decisions. While it is a very easy job for some, it might seem like a daunting task for others. It is easy to give advice, but even those people dread making significant decisions.

According to an astrologer, the decision-making capabilities of an individual are highly dependent and influenced by their natal chart or horoscope. Astrology states that the exact positioning of the celestial bodies at the time of an individual’s birth is a deciding factor for everything in life. Everything is determined at the time of birth, whether it is the characteristics, temperament, nature, career, interests, or marriage.

As per astrology, an individual can make wise decisions if the planets and celestial bodies are in a favorable position in the natal chart. However, if there are bad planetary combinations in the natal chart, the individual is likely to dread the task and, in turn, make bad decisions.

The 1st house out of the 12 houses in the natal chart affects the decision-making potential of the individual. The science of astrology believes that if the ascendant lord is placed in the good houses, the individual will be able to make wise decisions and be clear in their thoughts. However, if the case is reversed with the ascendant lord placed in the wrong house, the individual may be hesitant and unclear about everything in life.

Bad decisions are nothing but the result of our bad deeds, and when we make wrong decisions, situations tend to become tougher for us, and we cannot help but blame fate for it. But humans don’t realize that these are the fruit of our doings.

Following are the reasons why some people find it hard to make decisions or struggle with it very often.

  • According to an astrologer, people struggle with decision-making and cannot help but feel indecisive if the 1st lord is placed in a dual sign. These people will likely go back and forth over their decisions and feel very unclear.
  • The presence of many planets in the 1st house indicates an emotional and confused individual. The energies of all planets leave the individual perplexed, making it difficult.
  • The placement of the sixth lord in the 1st house indicates that the person will make poor decisions that will make them their enemy as the results will be too bad.
  • The positioning of the eighth lord in the 1st house means that the individual will suffer from depression and may also feel suicidal.
  • The presence of the 10th lord in the 1st house suggests that the individual is practical, and it won’t be hard for them to get their way.

Below is the effect on an individual’s decision-making power when the ascendant is placed on the following planets.

  • Sun: The individual will not face any difficulty in making decisions and will be quick to do so. These people feel their best in the mornings and can manage almost everything except relationships which are a little hard for them to manage.
