Your chart matrimonyBy far the most important subchart is the 9th, called the navamsha. While it serves a varietyof purposes, it’s most famous as the Hindu marriage chart. Read alongside the 7
house inyour original birth chart; it indicates if and when you will marry, if and when you maydivorce, the personality, values and probable vocation of your mate and the quality of your matrimony. The navamsha is queen of the subcharts. Even if your Indian astrologer doesn’thave time to review all your amshas, nava is Sanskrit for nine. (Think of related Englishwords like “novile” or “enneagram”.)The Second Half of LifeIn parts of South India, some very traditional astrologers will scarcely bother looking atyour birth horoscope. They figure that if you’re a mature adult, by now you’ve alreadydealt with many of the issues reflected in your natal chart and have graduated to thestrengths and challenges shown in your navamsha, which they think of as your secondhoroscope.ANALYZING MARRIAGE IN THE NAVAMSHA1. Examine the navamsha’s 1st house.2. Examine the navamsha’s 7
house.3. Are these two houses aspected or occupied by planets that support relationships likeVenus and Jupiter, or that prevent or sabotage them, like Mars and Saturn?4. Examine the planet that rules the navamsha’s 1
house.5. Examine the planet that rules the navamsha’s 7
house.6. Are these two planets placed in auspicious houses themselves, like the angles (house 1,4, 7, 10) or trines (houses 1, 5, 9) of the chart?Are they strong and stable?7. Now turn back to your birth chart. Find the planet that rules its 7
house.8. Look to see where the 7
house ruler from your birth chart is placed in the navamsha.What condition is it in?Example: If these factors are strongly influenced by a malefic like Saturn, the jyotishi willcheck Saturn’s condition to see whether it contributes positive Saturnine qualities likeemotional maturity and commitment, or shows coldness, cruelty or victimization inrelationships.There’s a saying in India, “The birth chart is a tree; the navamsha is its fruit.” Thenavamsha reveals how the tendencies shown in the original birth chart are likely to actually play out. It’s the horoscope of your second half of life, when you’ve had enough lifeexperience and reached sufficient psychological and social maturity to begin enjoying (or suffering from) the “fruit” of your earlier efforts.Ever wonder why some people are incredibly famous and successful in the first half of their lives, then seem to vanish into utter obscurity just when you’d assume they’d bereaching their peak? I think particularly of rock stars, actors or athletes who were world-famous as teenagers or young adults, but after they hit their 30s, we never heard of them
again. Vedic astrologers would explain this is reflected in part by having a very strong birthchart but a weak navamsha. In the second part of their lives, the momentum of the birthchart peters out if there’s no power in the navamsha to keep the momentum going.Then there are the kids you remember from high school whom you never for a momentthought would amount to anything, who’are now multimillionaire entrepreneurs or award-winning artists. One explanation for this phenomenon is that although the birth chart wasnot especially remarkable, the namasha burns up the paper it’s printed on with success andgood fortune. Bill Clinton and George Bush Jr. both have mediocere birth charts, but their navamshas are dynamite. In his mid-40s, Clinton seemed to rocket out of nowhere to winthe U.S. presidency. Bush, who seemed unable to speak a single sentence without trippingover his words, was handed the U.S. presidency by the Supreme Court in 2000. The Work You Will DoDiscovering your navamsha is like finding out there’s a sequel to a book you particularlyenjoy, which further develops the lead character and extends the plot line of the original book. The navamsha is an invaluable tool for astrologers working to grasp the depths ohuman nature and the sometimes intriguing, sometimes baffling, twists and turns of destiny.Here’s another example of how jyothishis used this amazing subchart.Confused about your true vocation in life? Curious about the career path your daughter or son may take? In Vedic astrology we look to the 10
house in the natal chart as well asthe 10
subchart for important clues to your life work. However, one of the great classics of Hindu astrology, the Phala Dipika (“Effects of the Planets”), offers a short cut to assessing ageneral career path using the navamsha. I’ve often been stunned at how accurately thissimple technique can reveal one’s profession.My friend Bhagavan Das (whose adventures were chronicled in Ram Das’s 1970 cultclassic, Be Here Now) has Jupiter as his navamsha career indicator. Jupiter indicates(among other professions) spiritual teachers, and Bhagavan Das is indeed a highly-silledteacher of Nada Yoga, a meditation system involving sound energy.READING PROFESSION IN THE NAVAMSHA1. Check to see which planet rules the 10
house of your Vedic birth chart.2. Look to see which sign that planet is in your navamsha.3. What planet rules that sign? That planet sets the tone for your career.4. Refer to The Vedic Planets table in Chapter 7 for a list of careers associated with eachplanet.Examples: The planet ruling Bill Clinto’s natal 10
house, Gemini, is Mercury. In Clinton’snavamsha Mercury occupies Scorpio, which is ruled by Mars. So Mars becomes his career indicator.The planet ruling George Bush Jr.’s natal 10
house, Aries, is Mars. In Bush’s navamshaMars occupies Leo, which is ruled by the Sun. So the Sun becomes his career indicator.
