planets, upagrahas and sahamas give their results. BasicallyVimsottari dasa is devided into 3 cycles of 40 years each, to getTribhagi Vimsottari dasa. Each dasa corresponds to a star and allthe 27 stars are covered in this way.5.
Rules observed to use saham in timing events
:For all conjunction, aspects etc. I have considered an orb of +/-5
to time the events. For example if a saham is at 23Cn40, then whenit’s sukhsma lord is say within 18Pi40 & 28Pi40, I have consideredit to be in trine to the saham point.1. Sukhsma lord of the saham must be either at 3
houses (Upachaya) from or in trine to or aspecting natal sahampoint by graha dristi- in transitANDTribhagi vimsottory dasa position (converted to longitude basedon elapsed time) has to be either in upachaya or trine to natalsaham or aspects natal saham by rashi dristi2. Saham’s rashi dispositor & navamsa dispositor will be conjunct intransit in rashi chart.3. Relevant bhaba lord’s rashi dispositor and navamsa dispositorwill be conjunct in transit in rashi chart. This is a Nadi methodand have been mentioned by Sri C.S. Patel in his book “NadiAstrology”In most cases it is seen that rule 1 and either rule 2 or rule 3 orboth gets satisfied.6.
How I have calculated dasa points position at the time of events
:In the case of event 1 below for case study 1, Dasa of Anuradhanakhsatra (Sa) was in operation which started on 21.2.1986 at 213.33deg in Scorpio and was running with a elapsed time of 1579 days outof 2312 days of total dasa period. So dasa point was at Scorpio at alongitude of 222.44 deg [213.33+(1579/2312)*13.333]7.
How I have arrived at the date range of events
:Say sukhsma lord is Jup and it is approaching the natal saham pointat any position and the distance from it to natal saham point is 2
Considering an orb of +/-5
, the lord has already crossed activationstart point by 3
and at yet to cross 7
to reach the end ofactivation point. Jup takes 365 days normally to cross a rashi (30
).So he travels 12.17 days per degree(365/30
). At this point lord hasalready crossed 3x12.17 = 37 days after the activation start pointand will take 85 more days to reach the end point. From this thedate range can easily be calculated based on the date – for which acheck is being done for an event.This may be noted that I have taken the normal speed of Jup, whereas planet speed always varies. If we take the actual speed of thelord at that point of time, the date range may be more realistic.
