Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA)Anukul / Pratikul
Anukul means a planet that is either beneficially disposed either by being strong inown sign, good house, ruler of houses which will bring positive results, or otherwisenot malefically disposed nor inclined to produce evil influence. A planet which is goodfor the chart either naturally or by house ruler ship yet somewhat weakened byplacement may be strengthened through the gem, or a planet which already isstrong and giving benefic influence may be further strengthened for gains inparticular areas of life by wearing the gem.Pratikul means a planet that causes evil influence or suffering to the native as seenthrough the horoscope. This may be a debilitated planet who is in a dusthana andenemy of the lord of the lagna, or otherwise disposed that the influence simplycauses suffering.It is NOT possible to appease a planet which causes suffering by wearing the gem.This is the heart of the pratikul philosophy and causes increased suffering for thepersons who are recommended by this method. Mantra, charity, etc. should beadvised in such cases solely.For example if one had a Sag lagna and lord of the ascendant were in the 6th housein Taurus yellow sapphire would be of help in strengthening Jupiter, regardless of thehouse being a dusthana and an enemy's sign. For the same lagna, say Sun was inthe 8th house in Cancer along with Mars, and there was no correction of debilitationin the horoscope for this. Ruby could be recommended with good results as beneficlord of the 9th, adding that Sun is also a planet that does well in the 8th house.On the other hand to recommend red coral for Mars would only increase the maleficeffects of Mars and cause increased suffering to the native. Were Saturn alsodebilitated in the 5th, it would be especially foolhardy to recommend blue sapphireas the terrible effects would be even more devastating to the person's life. Yet wereSaturn in Virgo in the 10th, blue sapphire may be worn for increased power inmatters of status and career, especially during the Saturn dasha or bhuktis.An experienced jyotishi must examine the chart from many perspectives beforemaking pronouncements on how a person's prarabdha karma will manifest in thislifetime and when the effects will be felt. It is not that we quickly see a planet'sposition in the rasi chart and make a pronouncement. Careful consideration is alwaysthe hallmark of an experienced practitioner of both jyotish and ayurveda in analysisand making recommendations. The same must be true for recommending agemstone to increase particular influences in a chart. It is true that sometimesincreasing a benefic influence may help to overshadow a negative one coming fromanother quarter, but a bad influence can never be lessened nor curtailed by using thegem for the planet producing it.It is not becoming to the persons who are learning, experiencing, and practicing thisbrahminical science to be stubborn about increasing their knowledge in planetarygemology nor any other facet of jyotish science. We are all students, regardless of
