Yogas.

1. Planets

occupying their own

signs or their exal-

tation or Moolatrikona

signs are said to be Karaka

planets

to one another, if, at the same time

they occupy the Ken-

dras from the Ascendant. In the above

case, a

planet

occupying the 10th house from another

planet is said to

be the

special Karaka of that

planet.

NOTES.

In this and in the next two

stanzas, the term "

Karaka

(helping) planets

"

is defined,

[Cn. XXII..

2.

Accordingly, if the

rising sign be Cancer and the

Moon

occupy it and if

Mars, Saturn, the Sun and

Jupiter

occupy their exaltation

signs, these four

planets are

known as Karaka

planets to one another

(a) Again, to a

planet occupying the

rising sign all

planets (b) occupy-

ing the 10th or the 4th house are Karaka

planets (c).

NOTES.

(a) In other words, Jupiter occupies sign Cancer
which is at the same time the

rising sign, Saturn

occupies

the 4th house Libra, Mars the 7th house

Capricorn and

the Sun the 10th house Aries. The Commentator infers

from this stanza that

planets occupying their

Swakshetra,

Ucha and Mulatrikona

signs are also

mutually Karaka

planets, if

they occupy Kendra

signs from one another

though not the Kendra

signs from the Ascendant.

(b) AII the

planets whether they occupy their own

signs, their exaltation

signs or their Mulatrikona

signs or

not, according to the Commentator.

(c) That is, the reverse does not hold. In other

words, the

planet occupying the Ascendant is not a Ka-

raka

planet of those

occupying the 4th or the 10th house.

3. A planet occupying its Mulatrikona and exaltation

sign (a] is also said to be a Karaka planet to one that

occupies the 10th house () from such

sign, and to the

latter, his Atimitra

planet is also said to be a Karaka

planet.

NOTES.

(a) But not

occupying the Kendra houses from the

Ascendant.

(b) This latter

planet must be in his

Swakshetra,

Mulatrikona or exaltation house. The effects of the Ka-

raka

planets are described in Varaha Mihira's work on

Yoga Yatra in which it is stated that when a

prince loses

his

kingdom, he recovers it in the Autardasa

period of a

Karaka

planet ; again, it is there said that a man

enjoys

comfort, wealth and successwhen the Moonpasses through

the house of a Karaka

planet, or

through the 2nd house

from that

occupied by the Sun. Also, that the

journey

may be a successful one, it shall be commenced when
the Moon

occupies either of the two

places mentioned
above ; otherwise, the traveller will receive blows on his

way.

4-. A person born when the

rising Navamsa is a

Vargottamaoneor when the Moon

occupies a

Vargottama

position will be

happy and

prosperous. The same remark

applies to a

person at the time of whose birth the 2nd

house from the Sun may be

occupied by benefic

planets

(a) or the Kendra houses may happen to be

occupied by no

planets at all

(b). Also, a

person at the time of whose birth

there are Karaka

planets occupying the

signs of the Zodiac

will be

happy and

prosperous.

NOTES.

(a) Mercury, Jupiter or Venus

according to the

Commentator.

(3) If one of the Kendras be

occupied the

person

will be

happy ;

if two or more be

occupied he will be

hap-

pier still, and if the

planets be benefic the

person will be

exceedingly happy and

prosperous.

5. If at the time of birth of a

person, Jupiter, or the

lord of the

sign occupied by the

Moon, or the lord of the

Ascendant

occupy a Kendra house, such

person will be

happy when in his mmhood. Again, if at the time of
commencement of a dasa

period the lord of such

period

happy to

occupy a

Prishtodaya sign, he will

produce his

effects

(a) at the end of the

period. If such lord

occupy a

Sirodaya sign he will

produce his effects at the commence-

ment of the

period and if he

occupy a Sira-Prishtodaya

sign, the eiRcts will be felt in the middle of the

period.

[Cn. XXIII.

NOTES.

() Whether benefic or malefic.

The Dasa

period is to be divided into three

equal

parts ; and the Sirodaya, Prishtodaya and

Siraprishtodaya

signs are defined in Stanza 10 of

Chapter I.

6. The Sun and Mars

produce their effects

(a) imme-

diately after

entering a

sign ;

Jupiter and Venus when

passing through the middle of a

sign ; Saturn and the

Moon before

quitting a

sign and

Mercury throughout his

course.

NOTES.

(a) Both benefic and malefic.

The sign must be

supposed to be divided into three

equal parts of 10

degrees each.
