CONCEPT OF VARGOTTAMA

(A Powerful Predictive Tool)

G.K. Goel B.Sc., B.E. Maharishi Parasara, Sage Satyacharya and Acharya Varaha Mihira have unanimously indicated that the following concepts and principles provide the basic foundation and structural strength for judgment and predictive purpose of a nativity: 1. Vargottama 2. Exaltation of the planets. 3. Planets in their Mool-Trikona and own signs. 4. Placement of the Planet (s) in Kendra (angular) houses. 5. Strong placement of the dispositors. 6. Strong and auspicious influence on Vesi house i.e. 2 nd house from the Sun. This is in fact applicable, for 2nd houses from any sensitive points or Yoga-Karta planets which plays pivotal role in the furtherance of Yoga. The Concept of Vargottama leads the list and is a very important and powerful tool in predictive Astrology. This Concept can only be applied and adopted if method of judgment of the nativity is based on divisional charts. The predictive astrology is based on three main pillars, namely, 1. Planets 2. Signs 3. Houses Maharishi Parasara has precisely explained this concept to his disciple Maitraye in chapter 3, slokas 4, 5 and 6 of BPHS: “Those, celestial bodies are called the planets (Grahas) that move through the Nakshatras (or asterisms) along the Zodiac (Bhachakra). The Zodiac comprises of 27 asterisms from Aswin to Revati and also devided in 12 equal parts known as signs (Rashis) from Aries to Pisces. The Zodiac sign which contains the rising (ascending) point at the time of Birth is called Lagna (ascendant)”. Based on the ascendant and the planets joining and separating from each other, the native’s good and bad fortune is deducted”. Parasara has given the concept of Bhavas (houses) along with 12 signs in the above narration. This is called the compartmental system of houses. In this, system the whole sign in which the degree of ascendant falls is considered the first house and subsequent sign as 2nd house and so on. The longitude of the ascending point becomes Page 1 of 39

the most sensitive points of the ascendant i.e.1 st house, and the sensitive points of other house will be 30° apart. The sensitive point of 10th house will fall in 10th sign from ascending sign and will have the same longitude as that of the ascending point in Lagna. In this system M.C. is not considered as the Mid-point or cusp of 10th house. M.C. is however given prime-importance due to it and is widely used for many other important purposes. The above mentioned Hindu (Vedic) Method, advocated by Sage Parasara, seems to be more rational and worthy of being followed in all astrological calculations particularly in the casting of a nativity. This method has universal applicability. In this system either the longitudinal duration or mid-point / cuspal degree of houses does not get distorted at higher latitudes. Parasara continued to narrate the description of the planets, signs, various Kinds of ascendants, up-Grahas and importance of Deeptamsa of 15 ° on either side of sensitivepoint of ascendant and other houses etc. (Deeptamsa means an effective Zone of 15 ° on either side of the sensitive-point of ascendant ,or sensitive points of other houses). After listening to the above narration, Maitreya enquired from Sage Parasara:

These Slokas are of great the significance and lay down the basis of Parasari Astrology: In this scheame, the nativity (sign chart) also acts as one of the Bhava chart. The other 15 kinds of Bhava Vargas (divisional charts) are for different purposes and these can be obtained by dividing signs (Rashis) into components and then arranging these components in a specified harmonic order. The division of any Varga chart that contains ascending degree will act first Bhava of that varga. Each Varga chart will have 12 Bhavas (with the exception in Hora-Varga chart) The each house of a varga will be identified by a Zodiac sign and will be called the abode of the sign lord. BPHS gives clear instruction for construction of each Varga. In this manner each sign is divided in 150 unequal parts (the arc 8of largest part is 30’ and smallest is 1’40”) and each part will have specific characteristics, which could be ascertained by constructing separate divisional charts. (This also laid down the foundation of Nadi Astrology).

LIST OF SIXTEEN VARGA CHARTS
Sage Parasara has narrated 16 varga charts which are given below. Each varga chart has a specific portfolio, purpose and signification: 1. D-1, 30º, Main Sign (birth) chart. This is the basic chart. Each sign is synonym to a Bhava (house). This chart indicates physical body and its related activities. The other divisional charts are sub-divisions of this chart. 2. D-2, 15º, Hora chart This chart deals with sustenance, mannerism, and attributes of the native. Parasara says this chart deals with Sampatti. The word Sampatti does not mean only material wealth but all means of sustenance including mannerism, nature and attitude towards life as a whole. 3. D-3, 10º, Dreshkanna This chart deals with Co-born and sources of happiness on account of inner posture of personality (Swaroopa). 4. D-4, 7º 30’, Chathurthamsa – Turyeeamsa This chart indicates fortune, fixed assets both in the form of property and worldly attachments. Due to this reason, this chart is also called Turyeeamsa as saints do not have worldly attachments. 5. D-7, 4º 17’ 8”.57 – Saptamsa This chart indicates progeny and cosmic creative ability to maintain cosmic order. Thus, this chart is indicative of God gifted creative imagination or destructive illusion. 6. D-9 - 3º20’ Navamsa – Dharmamsa

(Obviously if aspecting planets are friendly to the aspected Planet or sign and if these are strongly disposed.” Sloka 6 In this sloka.Sloka 5 ”A person is born with kingly status (or in the family of kings) even if one exalted planet is aspected by SUHRADYA (friendly) planet(s).(The natural friendly planets to Moon. then a Raja-Yoga of a higher order will be generated.

It may be worth nothing that the exalted planet gives good results when aspected by friendly planet (s). whenever any Vargottama planet (other than Moon or Lagan point) will be aspected by other planet(s). they become comparatively more auspicious and capable to confer Raja-Yoga provided other conditions prevail (such as aspect of other planets). when placed in same zodiacal sign in any two Vargas. if planets become Vargottama either in Sign/Navamsa charts or in Sign/Dreshkanna charts. if a planet is in same house (Bhava) in the two Vargas. and these planets are called Bhava Vargottama. as all houses in both Vargas will fall in same signs. The first two classification of Vargottama are commonly discussed in Jatak Granth’s and subsequent astrological literature. This means if a Vargottama planet is aspected by any planet(s). the concept of Vargottama may be understood as under:1. auspicious results will also accrue according to the signification of planet or Divisional Chart. Logically. The results of any planetary configuration or yogas are felt by the native through the Bhavas (houses) only. the three basic constitutes which stimulate events in a nativity are (1) Houses (Bhavas) (2) Signs (Rashis) (3) Planets. but with the active assistance of signs and planets. does not get the attention it deserves. This is not the precondition for Vargottama planet that they should be aspected by a friendly planet (s). What is the concept of Vargottama? As mentioned earlier in this article. 2. the auspicious results will accrue. The Vargottama Moon or Lagna help the native to attain the kingly status if they receive the aspect of other planet (s). this is called Varga Vargottama. The native will attain or inherit the kingly status in the directional period of most powerful planet forming the Raja-Yoga. The native obtains the results through houses. But. 3. Similarly. 5. which is even more powerful and equally important. it also enhances the auspicious results of these two Vargas according to specific portfolios of the concerned Vargas.

Similarly. These methods are at variance with the method suggested by Maharishi Parasara.e.g. The astronomical definition of Chitra Paksha Ayanamsa is given below: “When mean / true tropical longitude of star Chitra (Spica 16 – Virgins) is reduced by 180º. The method advocated by Parasara is already explained in this article . e. the remainder will be the mean / true value of Chitra Paksha Ayanamsa of the date. 8. If vargottama planet is aspected by other planet(s). each house will be owned by a planet. Signs and houses are inseparable from each other. The rising (ascending point) falling in the sign will become the ascendant of the respective varga chart. sub or sub-sub periods of Vargottama planets. 7. In all varga (divisional) charts.
