rulerships according to the vimshottari dasha system only. For the example above, theyogi point falls in the sign of Leo at 23 degrees 27 minutes putting it into the nakshatraof Purva Phalguni ruled by Venus. Therefore, Venus is the yogi of the chart. The Sunwould be the duplicate yogi as it is the ruler of the sign in which the yogi point is placed.Jupiter is the ruler of Purva Bhadrapada which spans from 20 degrees of Aquariusthrough 3 degrees 20 of Pisces. The avayogi point is located at 0 degrees 07 minutes of Pisces making Jupiter the avayogi of the chart. In five instances, the duplicate yogi andthe avayogi are the same planet. This fact will color some of the principles detailedbelow. In two instances, the yogi and the duplicate yogi are the same planet. A shortcutmethod of finding the avayogi once you know the yogi is by counting 6 inclusively fromthe yogi planet in vimshottari dasha sequence order. For the above example, Venuswould be the starting point as the yogi and counting inclusively in the order of Venus,Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu and Jupiter, you would arrive at Jupiter as sixth from Venus.
Trinal nakshatras of the yogi and avayogi nakshatra
: In this methodology, it isalso important to be aware that each planet in the vimshottari dasha scheme rules threenakshatras. For a given chart, the nakshatra containing the actual yogi or avayogi pointis the most important. However, results can also be seen when considering the twoother trinal nakshatras for each of the respective points. In the example above, thenakshatras of Bharani and Purvashadra can also be indicative of prosperity and thenakshatras of Purnavasu and Vishaka can be obstructive in this regard.
Principles of Prosperity:
Once these calculations have been accomplished, theintriguing process of applying these points to a given chart can begin. Each principle willbe stated below with an illustration so that the methodology is clear. There will not bean attempt at any further analysis of the chart other than to illustrate the principle andcomment where necessary on the life experience with respect to prosperity. As with anyother set of jyotish principles, good common astrological sense needs to be applied.There is a vast difference between a yogi planet that is in its own sign, vargottama, in agood house and unafflicted and one that is debilitated, in dusthana, combust andafflicted. Another factor to be aware of is that it is often the tendency when introducedto a new principle to immediately examine charts for example in this case, of wealthyindividuals and see if these principles apply. A true test of the validity of these principleswould be to examine charts where these combinations exist and see if they manifest inprosperity or poverty; however, one should note that there are many significations thatcan support prosperity and it does not necessarily follow that all people who have wealthwill have these particular indicators. Still, it SHOULD be the case that people with thecombinations listed below manifest the indicated results in a comfortable majority of thecases (although this is subject to the greater context in which this work is embeddedwhich will be unfolded in future writings.)Finally, it is important to remember that the yogi and avayogi will give results according totheir condition or strength. Jyotishis evaluate strength in different ways and in accordancewith their own experience and training. It is not my purpose to elaborate on this topic in thecontext of this paper but it is important to bear in mind that for maximum expression of theprosperity indicators, the yogi and duplicate yogi should be strong and well located.Likewise, for maximum expression of lack of prosperity, the avayogi should be strong andwell placed. In this system, the weaker the avayogi, the less it will obstruct prosperity.
The charts of private parties listed below have some or all of the birth detailswithheld to maintain confidentiality.
If the ascending degree of the horoscope is placed in the nakshatraof the yogi point, the person will be predisposed towards material prosperity.This will be all the more marked if the yogi is strong and favorably placed forgood results.
