The term Argala means \u2018bolt\u2019 which fastens objects together for good or ill. In a birth Argala shows
how each planet influences every area of our lives, quite beyond the connections usually seen via
Argala clearly shows how each planet will influence different areas of our lives leaving no stone
unturned. This explains how it is that we continue to eat throughout life, though few planetary
periods seem to have anything to do with the activity of eating.
Argala also explains how one area of life affects another. Just as our choice of spouse may cause peace or peril to the family or our job may take us away from home, the patterns of Argala effect our lives.
a) Primary Argala \u2013 support that is felt immediately and directly.
b) Secondary Argala \u2013 support that is felt subtly, but noticed with time.
c) Primary Virodha \u2013 obstruction that is felt immediately and directly.
d) Secondary Virodha \u2013 obstruction felt subtly, but noticed in time.
Primary Argala will have a direct bearing on the affairs of the house it gives Argala to.
The Secondary Argala will have a subtle bearing, in the form of things which are not brought to our
A Sign or Planet receives Argala from the following positions taken by other planets or signs and
reflected back to it.:
Primary Argala: 2nd, 4th and 11th signs from its position1. These are known as Dhaanaargala,
Sukhaargala and Labhaargala respectively.
Secondary Argala: 5th and 8th signs from its position2.
The planets or signs in the 12th, 10th and 3rd respectively, will cause Virodha, or obstruction, to the said houses. i.e. the 12th house will obstruct the Argala of the 2nd house, as the 10th house will cause obstruction to the 4th house.
From the above we can infer that the sign Pisces receives Primary Argala from: Aries (2nd), Gemini
(4th) and Capricorn (11th). This Argala is obstructed by: Aquarius (12th), Sagittarius (10th) and
If a malefic is in the 3rd sign from a planet or sign, then it causes \u2018Vipareeta Argala\u2019, or
\u2018Reverse Intervention\u2019. This means that an objective is initially obstructed and then gained
later on through some extra effort, which is called Parakrama.
The 7th sign from any sign or planet will cause Argala or Virodha depending on whether the
sign or planet is friendly or adverse to the natural significations (Karaka) of the house or
planet receiving the \u2018bolt\u2019. For example, a friendly planet will benefit the house, while a
malefic planet will do the opposite.
The mutual placement of the houses from each other gives a better understanding of Argala.
Everyone needs to eat to sustain the body and the 2nd house from Lagna has a direct bearing on the
health of the native. Similarly the 4th house will show the home of a native and his or her mother
who is responsible for carrying and nurturing the child to maturity.The 11th house shows the hopes
and the fulfilment of dreams which are essential for the natives journey through life.
The 5th from the Lagna shows the future of the Lagna, namely the children and followers who may
shape the natives fortune. Malefic\u2019s in the 5th may cause lack of support from the same. Whereas
malefics placed in the 8th from the Lagna would indicate longevity and sudden events influencing
the life of the native.
Above is a chart showing the Argala interactions the 4th house as the focus. The 4th house rules
primary education, mother, home, vehicles and happiness. Focusing on the topic of education the
following can be seen.
The 4th house receives Argala from the 5th house (2nd from it) and shows that the intelligence of the
native is necessary to sustain the education.
The 4th house receives Argala from the 7th house (4th from it) indicating that social-capability, and
partners, may enhance the comfort of one\u2019s education.
