The term Brihaspati means lord of expansion (growth). We all need expansion in our life. We always desire expansion in our career, education, health and prosperity.
Brihaspati is celestial teacher of gods and goddess. He is their friend philosopher and guide.
Being an educator, he tries his best to bless us. Unlike modern day teacher, he is not limited to your career but overall progress. Eastern wisdom declares that a true teacher never leaves his or her disciple in lurch.
Those who have poor or debilitated position of Brihaspati in their horoscope are advised
-To wear yellow sapphire (though its expensive).
Show respect to teachers, saints and philosophers.
-Respect their father.
-If possible, then donate turmeric, yellow flowers and sweets to a saint.
Being a sign of progress, he is always benevolent to all who seek his blessings.
Brihaspati ji can also be appeased if you pray to Lord Krishna who has been eulogized as jagat guru in sacred texts (Universal teacher).
Skeptics who ignore Brihaspati be assured that being lord of expansion, Brihaspati will also bring negative conditions in your life.

It hardly takes your time or resources but all you need is to do well to others.
Brihaspati ji will bless you if you are in a right path.
