Bruhaspathi was well versed in Vedhas and arts. So, he was nominated as Advisor (Guru) for the Devas. He was also called as Devaguru. He had two wives Tara and Sangini and a son called Kasan. Devas will not do anything without consulting him.   He takes One year to cross 30 degree on a Rasi (Zodiac). The auspicious day for him is "Thursday".
