Mode of rising
mode of rising signs of the zodiac
Shirshodaya (rising with the head) 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11
Prishtodaya (rising with the hand) 1, 2, , 9, 10
Ubhayodaya (rising with both) 12
Benefic of malefic
As per general parashari rule
All odd signs are malefic 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11
All even signs are benefic 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12
Another viewpoint is that signs having lordship of benefic planets are
benefic and those having lordship of malefic planets are malefic. Hence
based on lordship.
Malefic signs having malefic lordship 1, 5, 8, 10, 11
Benefic signs having benefic lordship 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 12
Strength
All odd signs are considered strong during day all even signs are considered
strong during night. However, the following classification of strength of
signs during day and night is more acceptable.
Signs powerful during night (Ratribali) : 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10
Signs powerful during day (divabali) : 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12
Ratribali signs are governed by Moon and divabali signs are governed by
Sun.
Lunar or Solar
Solar signs are 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 whereas lunar signs are 4, 3, 2, 1, 12 and 11. There is
another viewpoint to consider diurnal signs as solar and nocturnal signs as lunar signs
which are as follows.
Lunar Signs 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10
Solar Signs 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12
Male or Female
Male Signs are all odd signs 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11
Female Signs are all even signs 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12
Element of Signs
Fiery Aries, Leo Sagittarius (1, 5, 9)
Earthy Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn (2, 6, 10)
Airy Gemini, Libra, Aquarius (3, 7, 11)
Watery Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces (4, 8, 12)
Nature of Mobility
Movable Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn(1, 4, 7, 10)
Fixed Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius (2, 5, 8, 11)
Dual Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces (3, 6, 9, 12)
Movable signs indicate mobility or change of status whereas fixed signs
indicate status quo or no change. Dual signs fall in between the two and in
the context of prashna the rising degrees determine its tilt towards moveable
or fixed. A dual sign rising with 0 to 15 degress is closer to a fixed sign and
gives results accordingly. On the other hand dusl sign rising with 15 to 30
degrees is closer to a moveable sign and gives the results of a moveable sign.
Directions
Directions are determined from the sign in the rising Lagna.
East Aries, Leo, Sagittarius (1, 5, 9)
South Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn (2, 6, 10)
West Gemini, Libra, Aquarius (3, 7, 11)
North Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces (4, 8, 12)
For the purpose of Arudha Lagna however the direction are allotted in
accordance with the direction from which the querist approaches the
astrologer. Aries and Taurus represent East, Gemini South-East, Cancer and
Leo South, Virgo South-West, Libra and Scorpio West, Sagittarius North-
West, Capricorn and Aquarius North and Pisces North-East.

The duration of rising Lagna varies with sign, latitude and the hemisphere.
The duration
given above is at equator which varies with increase in latitude. Foe each
place the
duration of rising of a sign called oblique ascension must be done in mind.

PLANETS
Natural benefics and malefics
Natural benefic planets : J upiter, Venus, Mercury and Moon
Natural malefic planets : Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu
Note:
1. Mercury is malefic if associated with malefic otherwise not.
2. Moon is benefic from ashtami of shukla paksha to saptami of Krishna paksha and
malefic from ashtami of Krishna paksha to saptami of shukla paksa.
3. Sun is cruel or krura.

There are controversies with regard to exaltation and debilitation signs of Rahu and Ketu.
However, it is widely accepted that the exaltation sign of Mercury is the own sign of
Rahu and own sign of Mercury is the exaltation of Rahu. Hence Gemini is the exaltation
sign of Ketu and debilitation sign of Rahu. Virgo and Pisces are the own signs of Rahu
and Ketu respectively. Rahu and Ketu give good results in saumya rashis or benefic signs
which are the signs owned by Mercury, J upiter and Venus. In this very context it is
believed that the exaltation sign of Rahu is Taurus. This viewpoint too is acceptable and
gives results accordingly.
A debilitated planet gives unfavourable results pertaining to its lordship as well as for the
house where it is posited. Several combinations of cancellation of debilitation called
neech bhang raj yogas have been given which are summarized as below. It must by
understood that such a cancellation gives results for the house whose lordship the said
planet carries.
1. When lord of debilitation sign is in Kendra from Moon.
2. When debilitated planet’s exaltation sign lord is in Kendra from
Lagna and Moon.
3. When debilitated planet is posited in Kendra from Lagna or Moon.
4. when debilitated planets sign dispositor, which is its debilitation sign
lord, influences that planet by position or aspect.
5. when debilitated planet’s debilitation sign lord and exaltation sign
lord are in mutual aspect or kendras.
6. The planet which gets exalted in the debilitated planet’s sign is
posited in a Kendra from Lagna or Moon.
These principles of cancellations though important for natal horoscopes are
rarely used in prashna charts though they must be tried and tested to reach at
a definite conslucion.
Similarly there are different viewpoints with regard to the cancellation of
exaltation also. As per Sarvarth chintamani when an exalted planet is
retrograde it gives the result of a debilitated planet whereas a retrograde
debilitated planet gives the results of an exalted planet. In prashna however
there is an entirely different method of analyzing retrograde planets, based
on my observations. It has been enumerated in the chapter on “General
Principles of Prashna” However, this in an interesting area of research.

Note: Eunuchs must be considered to give neutral results.
Whenever mixed results are obtained, the majority influence decides the sex

Planetary Avasthas
Name of avastha Planetary position
1. Deepta avastha Planet in its sign of exaltation
2. Swastha avastha Planet in its own house
3. Mudita Planet in a friends house
4. Shaant avastha Planet posited in the vargas of benefic planets.
5. Shakta avastha When the planet is bright, heliacally rising and not
combust
6. Peedit avastha When the planet is combust
7. Deen avastha Planet in its sign of debilitation
8. Khala avastha Planet defeated in a planetary war
9. Vikala avastha When posited with malefic planets
10. Bheet avastha When the planet is heliacally set.
Planetary avasthas are classified in different ways by several learned
scholars. In the generally accepted ten avasthas, enumerated above, a planet
in retrogression does not find a place. Particularly in prashna analysis, in my
view, a retrograde planet specifically gives repetition, cancellation or failure
depending upon the overall influences. This is explained in chapter on
“General Principles of Prashana”.
Heliacally setting or rising of planets as mentioned in shakta and bheet
avasthas needs to be understood. During the journey of a planet around the
Sun, as viewed from Earth’s a planet is not visible to the naked eye when it
is too close to the Sun. A planet in such a situation is called heliacally set.
On the other hand when it becomes visible on moving away from the Sun, it
is termed as heliacally rising.

Tajik aspects
As per tajik system of astrology, which has a great bearing and value in
prashna analysis, the aspects are as follows:
Friendly aspects Openly friendly 5, 9
Secretly friendly 3, 11
Inimical aspects Openly inimical 1, 7
Secretly inimical 4, 10
Neutral aspects considered as no aspect 2, 2, 6, 8
Which aspects to use, Parashari or Tajik
There has been a debate as to which aspects should be used in prashna,
whether parashari or tajik. In the same context it is argued that before tajik
principles were evolved, whether parashari knowledge was inadequate to
analyze prashnas with excellence. This point must be understood clearly to
avoid any confusion at the stage of analytical reasoning. Tajik aspects are an
essential criteria for the formation of tajik yogas. Other than this fact tajik
aspects should not be used. In prashna analysis parashari aspects only need
be used and this emphasis has been duly illustrated in this book.
Cause of Death
Planets posited in the 8H show the cause of death. However, 22
nd
dreshkon,
64
th
navamsha or 85
th
dwadashamsha and their lords should also be
considered. To know whether the death will be peacefully or unhappy, see
the 7H from Mandi in the navamsha chart. If benefic is posited there than the
death will be peaceful otherwise not. The influence of the following planets
on the 8H indicate the cause of death, as follows:
Planet Cause of death Planet Cause of death
Sun Fire J upiter Disease
Moon Drowning Venus Thirst/sexual
disease
Mars Weapons/Accident Saturn Hunger/Sudden
death
Mercury High fever Rahu Poisons/Faulty

Planetary Friendships
Planetary friendships is of two types, natural and temporary.
Natural friendship is gauged from a planet’s mooltrikon sign Lords of 2, 4,
5, 8, 9, 12 from a planet’s mooltrikon sign are its friends and others are
enemies. When a planet is a friend considered from one lordship and enemy
from the other, then it is termed as neutral. Temporary friendship and enmity
is seen from the placement of planets. From any planet, those posited in 10,
11, 12, 2, 3, 4 are its friends and other enemies. A correlation between
natural and temporal friendship gives us panchadha maitri which is not
generally considered in prashna. Here we consider group friendship which is
as follows:
Group I : Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Ketu
Group II : Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Rahu
Planets within a group are friends and outside the group are enemies.
Parts of Body
Planets Body Parts Planets Body Parts

As per Krishacharya
Dhatu or mineral Moon, Mars, Rahu and Saturn
Mula or root Sun and Venus
J eevaor living J upiter and Mercury
There are divergent views in this classification also J upiter is J eeva, Sun,
Mars and Rahu represent dhatu, Saturn indicates mula. Some consider Sun
and Saturn to indicate both dhatu and mula, Mercury as jeeva and Venus as
mula. As per another viewpoint, Moon represents both dhatu and jeeva
whereas Mercury and Venus indicate both jeeva and mula. However the
accepted. Out of these planets, those which influence Lagna signify the
particular category of dhatu, mula or jeeva.
Dhatu
All minerals and mental extracted from the earth are dhatus. These are
broadly of two types. The first group includes gold, silver, jewel etc.
whereas the second group has soil, stones, coal minerals. For the sake of
convenience let us call them expensive and inexpensive group, although
technically it is not so because certain minerals are even more expensive
than silver and gold. They can also be classified as malleable or non
malleable metals.
Planets influencing Lagna Any of Moon, Mars, Saturn, Rahu
In the navamsha of malefics Expensive group – Gold, Silver, J ewels
In the navamsha of benefic Inexpensive group – Soil, stones, minerals.
Planet related with karyesh Type of dhatu
Sun Pearl
Venus and Moon Silver
Mars Brass, red stones, coral (moonga)
Mercury Gold
J upiter Gold studded with jewels
Saturn Iron
Rahu Bones including Ivory
Mula
All vegetation is mula. They are also of two types. Vegetation which grows
on land is called sthalaj mula and which grows in water is called jalaj mula.
Planets influencing Lagna : Sun or Venus
In the navamsha of watery : Mula or growing in water jalaj mula
Signs (4, 8, 10, 11, 12)
In the navamsha of other : Mula growing on land sthalaj mula
Signs (1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9)
Jeeva
All livings beings are jeeva. They are further divided into dwipad or two
legged, chatushpad or four legged, keeta or insects. This classification is also
on the basis or origin. The genesis of andaj jeeva is from eggs, like birds.
Keeta jeeva includes insects and pindaj jeeva are the other living beings not
falling in the above two categories.
Planets influencing Lagna Mercury or J upiter
J upiter or Venus Two legged dwipad
Sun or Mars Four legged chatushpad
In the influence of malefics Wild animals
In the influence of benefics Pet animals

Significations of houses for kingdoms and democracies
The significations of 12 houses have been dealt in considerable detail in the
previous pages. Effort has been made to group them into different heads for
practical and easy reference. The original Prashna marg verses written by a
namboodri Brahmin of Kerala in 1649 A.D. refers to certain specific
significations of houses. They can be viewed in the context of the period
when they were written or more logically the period when they were
observed, tested, researched, assimilated and applied. Raj jyotishi had all his
efforts directed towards the king and the kingdom. These have been given
here with the present context in which these significations can be effectively
used with regard to prashnas pertaining to countries, politics, mundane
affairs etc.

General characteristics of Planets
Characteristics of the Planets will be dealt in different types. But the same
planets will
have 2 or more causative effects.
SUN
For example Sun is the causative planet of, father: and this same planet will
denote sons
of father and after giving issues will become father of his children
As per Indian Astrology, Sun is the Soul and is known as the Almighty.
MOON
As per the above example Moon is the causative planet of Mother in Male
and Female
birth chart. In the chart of married women, which will guide the character of
the Mother
and Mother in Law.
According to the Nadi Reading Moon is the causative planet of Mother,
Maid, Mother-in-Law and also in some of the circumstances which will own
the place of Wife, Because the Moon is the incarnater of Parvathi, Who is
the Mother of the Universe, Mother and Mother- in-Law can give birth to
continue the general of this world, after giving birth every maid will become
Mother.
MARS
Mars indicated the native’s brother, when he will entage with planet of
Karma, it denoted partner of his career.
Whenever these planets are situated in particular sign, if the planet is
associated in friendly sign which will give the good effects, otherwise the
native will have to struggle with misunderstandings.
MERCURY
Mercury is the causative planet of younger brothers, father-in-law’, friends
education, knowledge.
But the same Planet will be considered as maid, wife, because Mercury is
the incarnation of Mahavishnu. While referring to Indian Mythology, Vishnu
had to become won form under two instances, viz., once during the
distribution of Amritha, after the churning of Meera Parvathi and again
during the Mohini Bhasmasura thus indicating that the Vishnu Karraka is a
mixture of man and woman (involved with Bhudha).
While considering the predictive Nadir-Astrology, it is observed that Vishnu
Karaka (incarnater of Mahavishnu) is indicated by the planet of Mercury.
JUPITER
Is the Planet of J eeva or causative planet of life. Sun is Soul or Atma, J upiter
is the life, combination of both in a sign of the native’s birth chart will give
knowledge of philosophy, high status and also he is the master. Out of his
male children, one is incarnator of his Grand father, J upiter is Dharmakaraka
Graha.
SATURN
The planet Saturn will denote the native; in other words he is the ‘indicator
of KARMA’. In Hindu philosophy much importance is given to Dharma
and also to Karma (J eeva +Karma); therefore generally public will give
much importance to these two planets.
RAHU AND KETHU
Although these planets having much powers, some of the authors have
omitted in their literature this aspect. But in the Nadi-system Rahu the
causative planet of Pithamah, Grand-father and Mouth (main entrance) “
KALIPURUSHA AMSHA”.
TRANSITS (Indian Method)
The method of transit was also handled by ancient Indian astrologers for the
purpose of predicting future events. The name by which this method is
known in the Indian system is Gochara. There is, however, one difference.
In the Indian system, the house of the Moon at birth is taken as the first
house for purposes of Gochara calculations. In the following paragraphs the
effects of the transits of the planets in the twelve different houses, counted
from the Moon’s house at birth are tabulated.
The following effects will be felt only when the vedha places of the planets
are not vitiated by the presence of incompatibles as tabulated here.
Here are the planets and their vedha places.
Sun 3/9; 6/12; 10/4; 11/5.
Moon 1/5; 3/9; 6/12; 7/2; 10/4; 11/8.
Mars 3/12; 6/9; 11/5.
Mercury 2/5; 4/3; 6/9; 8/1; 10/7; 11/12.
J upiter` 2/12; 5/4; 7/3; 9/10; 11/8.
Venus 1/8; 2/7; 3/1; 4/10; 5/9; 8/5; 9/11; 11/6; 12/3.
Saturn 3/12; 6/9; 11/5.
The following are exceptions: there is no vedha between Sun and Saturn;
Moon and Mercury.
The Sun for instance is good in 3
rd
house from Moon. But unless the 9
th
house is not vitiated by the presence of other planets (Saturn is an
exception), the good effect will not accure.

Rahu and Ketu wield the same influences as Mars and Saturn respectively.
Of these planets, Sun and Mars will usher their influence immediately as
they enter the houses: J upiter and Venus while half-way in the houses;
Saturn at the time of leaving the houses; Moon and Mercury all through their
sojourn.
It should be borne in mind that the effects enumerated above will be
modified by the strength or weakness by position, rulership and aspects of
their planets. For instance besides the vedha positions already explained, an
aspect between a good and bad planet neutralizes the effects of both,
whereas the bad aspect, of two bad planets will increase the bad effects. The
good effects of a weak planet will naturally become weak like milk mixed
with water.
The Moon just becomes an amplifier of the good or bad effects indicated by
the different planets with which it becomes associated during its short
sojourn in the different houses.
This method should always be handled jointly with the dasa system,
checking one by the other as it were. And however beneficent a planet may
be in its gifts during transit, the dasa period should permit the same to be
taken full advantage of. Further, while pronouncing opinions by this method,
the results of all the planets in the different houses should be considered, for
the net effect alone should be taken.
In transits too, the relative strengths of the different planets and special
aptitudes in respect of individual horoscopes should be taken into account:
or no two horoscopes are identical and each reading should be
individualized.

so all that we have to do is to calculate the longitude of the Moon from time
of birth from Raphael’s Ephemeris and subtract from it the ayanamsa of the
year of birth. This will give us the exact position to the above table, we can
immediately find what the opening dasa is. What remains for us is to find
how much of the opening dasa is outstanding at the time of birth.
It has already been shown that the measure of a nakshatra is 13 degrees 20’.
So, the total amount of the years of the opening dasa must be equated to this
13 degrees 20’ and that portion of the years which is proportionate to the
degrees yet ot be traversed by the Moon in order to complete that nakshatra
must also be found. This will be the outstanding years of the opening dasa.
The other dasas will follow afterwards in the fixed order.
ON DASAS IN GENERAL
Generally speaking the dasas or major periods, of planets who are lords of
the angles or trines produce favorable results; those of the lords of the
second, third and eleventh houses, prodice mixed results and those of the
sixth, eighth and twelfth houses unrelieved by other favorable factors are
always harmful. The Sun and the Moon are however exceptions to the odium
in respect of the eighth house rulership alone.
During the period of rule of the lord of the first house, the native will be
strongly entrenched. During that of the ruler of the second house, setting up
family and domestic happiness are indicated. When the lord of the third
house rules, unfavorable results accrue. Acquisition of properties is indicated
during the rule of the fourth house. Childbirth during the rule of the fifth
house lord, fear from foes during that of the sixth house lord marriage in the
case of the seventh, recovery from illness in the case of eighth, interest in
good undertakings in the case of the ninth, good business conditions during
that of the tenth gain in the eleventh and sickness, expenses and confinement
in the twelfth are indicated. These effects will accrue when the lords are
strong.
During the major period of a planet, its own sub-period will be
inconspicuous. Apparently the planets choose to remain neutral out of
humility.
The planets, during similar disabilities, fulfill their promises through the
medium of their colleagues which are similarly placed or aspected during
their sub-periods.
During the periods of yoga karakas the malcontents find themselves
incapable of doing any mischief. Their hands are tied as it were.

Similarly in the major period of a harmful planet, the sub-periods of good
planets which are un-influenced by the ruling planet, are hardly productive
of good results. Those that are influenced give mixed results.
The highly beneficial effects of a planet that gives raja yoga, manifest
themselves in the sub-period of the maraca (death-dealing) planet during the
major period of the former. The good results go on increasing in the sub-
periods of harmful planets during the same major period.
The major periods of those planets which are the lords of the third, fifth or
the seventh nakshatras from the janma nakshatra are also evil.
In general, the good effects of favorable planets begin to take shape when
the Sun or J upiter usher their sun-periods in the major period of the former.
YOGAS
Certain special positions of planets or Yogas which are remarkable for their
effects are described in the following paragraphs:-
Ruchaka Yoga is when Mars occupies his own place and in trine or angles to
the Lagna. The indications for the same are a long face, doggedness, wealth
by various means, victory, fame and generalship.
Bhadra – This is when Mercury is placed as above and in trine or angles to
the Lagna. The indications are long life; brilliant intellect, officership, gift of
the gab, wealthy and praise from the learned.
Hamsa – This yoga happens when J upiter is placed in the same manner as
the above. Kingship, admiration even by the enemies, charitable-
mindedness, and beautiful body are the indications.
Malava – When Venus is similarly placed this yoga is said to be formed, the
effects being great wealth, plenty of cash, large family, landed property,
vehicles, servants, etc., scholarship, charitable-mindedness.
Sasaka – This is when Saturn is similarly placed. The native will be wealthy,
enjoy life to the brim, but will be a derelict and immoral person.
Vallaki – If all the seven planets are distributed at the rate of one planet in a
sign starting from Lagna consecutively, this yoga is said to be formed. The
indications are: the native will be a lover of music, dancing and allied arts.
Dhama – This is when the seven planets occupy six signs from lagna
consecutively. Then the native will be highly charitable.
Daridra – Lord of 11
th
in 6, 8, 12 or 11
th
occupied or aspected by malefics.
He will be poor, indebted, speak and behave awkwardly, do hateful actions
and be a servant for life.
Rajju – This happens when all the planets in a horoscope occupy the
movable signs. The indications are that the native will have interrupted
fortunes but famous.
Khemudra – If there are no benefic planets in or on either side of Langa or
Moon’s place or in their kendras then the man will be a run-down even
though born rich. He will most probably live in bondage doing undesirable
things.
Chamara – This is a very desirable yoga and happens when there is a benefic
in the langa which is well placed and well aspected and the lord of the lagna
is similarly well-placed and well aspected. The effects are long life, riches
and fame in public life.
Raja yoga – If the lords of the 9
th
and 10
th
houses are in conjunction in either
of the above house or are situated in one another’s house, they produce very
favorable results in all undertakings.
Neecha bhanga Rajayoga – When a planet occupies his neecha position, (a)
if the lord of that neecha house or the lord of its uchcha house (7
th
from it)
occupies Kendra position from Lagna or Moon.
(b) If the lord of that neecha house occupies his house or exaltation or
Kendra.
(a) If the lord of that neecha house aspects the neecha planet.

RESULTS FOR EACH YEAR OF THE AGE OF
THE NATIVE
RULED BY 3 PLANETS EACH YEAR
For persons born in 27 stars, during each year of their age, 3 planets rule the
year. If all the planets are fully benefics the year troughout will be good. If
two of the planets are benefics and the other is malefic the result will be
good but at the same time there may be also bad results to a certain extent. If
one planet alone is benefic and the remaining two are with rare intermittent
good results. If all the three planets are malefic the complete year will be
bad. The native has to suffer to the maximum throughout the year. This
calculation of knowing the results is prevalent mostly in northern districts of
India. Since this quantities in a way, the results of ruling planets each year.
This is also considered here under Gochar results given here. Now we will
explain the method of knowing yearly results by this method.
1. J upiter, Venus waxing Moon, Mercury not connected with malefics
are the full beneifcs.
2. Sun, Mars, waning Moon, Mercury connected with malefics, Saturn,
Rahu and Ketu are malefics.
3. First we should calculate the present age of number of which we have
to know the results.
4. Note down the J anma Nakshatra of the person.
5. Now get down the birthday of the year of the age of person should be
noted down. From that day only the particular new year of age for
which you have to know the results begin. Now look at the tables first
from the perpendicular first column upside down all the 27 stars are
given one by one. Next you may see the horizontal colums showing
different ages. Now let us take the age of the native is at present 68.
Let us suppose that his J anma Nakshatra is Chithra. Now look down
under 68 in the horizontal column where the horizontal column cut the
vertical column. In this square you see the planets Rahu, Ketu and
Mars, all are malefics. Hence during this 68
th
year he will havce
completely bad results which means, the year will not be good at all.
However, in his 72 years you will see that Lords are Moon, and
J upiter. Hence this year will be very good. From the above we can see
that
1. 68
th
year Lords are - Rahu, Ketu and Mars a bad year
2. 69
th
year - Lords are Ketu, Mercury, Ketu ---
Moderate only 1/3
rd
good
whenever Mercury’s transit is not connected
with malefics.
3. 70
th
year - Lords are Venus, Mars and Moon.
- Here Venus will do good, Moon will do
good when waxing
that is for 6 months he will be good.
Hence this year will be
50% good for the native.
4. 71
st
year - The Lords are Venus, Ketu and Mercury.
Here only Venus
is good and Mercury is good. Whenever
he is not connected
with malefics, that is he functions as
benefic planet for 50%
of the year including Venus 1.5 planets are
good this year.
Hence he will have 50% good results and
50% bad results
With intermittent periods.
5. 72
nd
year - Now take the 72
nd
year. The Lord are
Moon, J upiter and
J upiter. Here Moon will be good when he
is waxing hence
He is 50% good. J upiter is fully good.
Hence 1/3 +1/3 +
1/6 =2+2+1 =5/6 the year will be 0.833
good with inter-
mitten good and bad periods. Hence out of
all the years
from 68 to 72
nd
years of age will be good
on the greater side
II. Now we can know the results in yet another way. For each afe 3 planets
are given. Now these 3 planets should be understood to give 4 months of
each in the year beginning from the first planet given in the order now. First
planet gives results up to 4
th
month of the age. The second planet gives
results from 3 to 8
th
months of the particular age. The third planet gives
results from 9
th
to 12
th
month of the age. Now with this in view if you look
the case of the native.
1. 68
th
year will prove completely bad.
1. 69
th
year, the middle four months will only be good, whenever
Mercury is not connected with malefic planets.
2. 70
th
year, the Lords being Venus, Mars and moon here first 4 months
will be good. 2
nd
4 months will be very bad. During the third 4 months
2 months will be good with intermittent 15 days period each whenever
Moon is waxing.
3. 71
st
year also will be limits to that of 70
th
year if not lesser good. First
4 months will be completely good second 4 months will be
completely bad (Ketu rules) During 3
rd
& 4
th
months say 50% i.e. 2
months period will be good with intermittent fap whenever Mercury is
not connected with any malefic.
4. 72
nd
year, the second and third 4 months period will be very good. The
lord being full benefic during the first 4 months period 50% will be
good with intermittent gaps when ever the lord Moon is through
waxing phase.
In this way, we can analuyse the results for each year of the age for the
native.
Now you can refer to your table and find out which years of the age of the
native will be good. In the above case from 68 to 71
st
year age results are not
good. And 72
nd
year will be very good and during this year you can start
new things, projects etc.

SARVATO BHADRA CHAKRA
SARVATO BHADRA CHAKRA is term used for predicting transit of
planet in a more precise way. The vedhas pronounced as auspicious in the
charka bring happiness but those declared as evil produce only miseries and
calamities. While considering the effect of transit of a planet, the charka
should also be used.
Refer to the diagram of SARVATO BHADRA CHAKRS (Fig). The details
of varga number and their constituents are as follows. These all pertains to
the brigh constituents are as follows. These all pertains to the brigh
constituents of the native, whose transit results are to be considered.
The main constituents are as follows:
Varga Numbers
1. Stars : 2 to 8, 10 to 16, 18 to 24 & 26 to 32
2. Signs : 58 to 60, 62 to 64
3. Lunar Tithies : 74, 76, 78, 80 and 81
4. Weekdays : 74, 76, 78, 80 and 81
5. Vowels : 1, 9, 17, 25, 33, 39, 65, 69,. 73, 75, 45, 51,77, 79,
57 & 61.
6. Consonants : 34 to 38, 40 to 44, 46 to 50, 52 to 56
Methodology
After understanding the nature and characteristics of planets, the next step is
to determine their Vedha aspect on the five important components of the
individuals. These are as under:
- Star (Nakshatra) at birth occupied by Moon
- Sing (Rasi) at birth occupied by Moon
- Lunar Tithi at birth and birthday
- Consonant – First word of the native’s name
- Vowel – swara of the native’s name
All these can be determined from the birth chart. In case the birth chart is not
available, decide on the basis of most popular latest name of the individual.
To know the star of the person from the first letter of these name, when we
do not know through birthday star, please refer to the table given below:

Before judging the results you should note the following:
1. Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are malefic planets. Mercury
associated with malefics is also malefics. Waning Moon is also
malefic.
2. J upiter, Venus and Moon are benefic.
Vedha
With inter-play of transit of planets through stars, the effect, produced in
certain stars by they aspect in any of the three aspects front, left and right
which is called Vedha. The vedha produced by suba (benefic planets) grahas
give good results. If produced by ashubha grahas (malefic planet gives bad
results). All the nine planete have three types of vedha aspect as under:
In Sarvato Bhadra Chakra, speed of a planet is of vital importance because
of types of Vedha aspects depend on speed. Usually the planets, have
following types of speed.
Motion – speed Vedha - Aspect
- Direct motion – Normal speed Front
- Direct motion – High speed Left
- Retrograde motion – Backward Right
Direct motion : When a planet moves direct in clockwise direction, without
stopping, it is known as direct motion, e.g. planet moving from Aries to
Taurus. It’s Vedha aspect is called front vedha. The anti-clockwise
movement of the planet is called retrograde.
Types of Vedha aspect
In Sarvato Bhadra Chakra, aspect of planets, is considered most important,
because Vedha depends on aspect, which may be direct, right to left,
depending on the speed of a planet. This aspect is front when in normal
speed, left when in high speed, and right vedha when retrograde.
The 9 planets have three types of Vedha aspect as under:
Sun, Moon, Rahu and Ketu can aspect in all the 3 directions.
Retrograde planet can aspect only on the right direction. Fast planet can
aspect only on the left direction. Planet with normal speed can aspect in
front direction only.
Front Vedha of a planet can only cause Vedha of star & pada in opposite
direction.
Right side Vedha aspect by a retrograde planet can cause Vedha of all the
five components.
Left side Vedha will also cause Vedha of all the five components.
Mars, Mercury, J upiter, Venus, Saturn, have Vedha aspect in one direction
only depending on their speed.
As regards fromt Vedha by a planet some Sages suggested that this Vedha
should also cover the other 4 components.
Right and left Vedha aspects is always angular at 45 degrees and causes
Vedha of all components occupying vargas in that direction.
Special Vedha Aspect
Planet in 4
th
pada of Bharani causes Vedha of 1
st
pada of Krittika and A
vowel (by left aspect).
Planet in 4
th
pada of Aslesha causes Vedha of 1
st
pada of Anuradha and ‘E’
vowel (by left aspect).
Planet in 4
th
pada of Sravan causes Vedha of 1
st
pada of Dhanistha and ‘EE’
vowel (by left aspect).
Planet afflicting Aridra Star, the ku, gha, na, Chha consonants are also
afflicted.
Planet afflicting Hasta Star, the pu, sha, na tha, consonants are also afflicted.
Planet affliction Purvashada Star, the Bu, dha, pha and da consonants are
also afflicted.
These consonants are not provided in SBC. Hence their Vedha may be
examined in this way. These (words) consonants belong to different pada of
stars.
Similarly planets occupying 4
th
pada of Bharani, Ashlesa, Visaka and Sravan
cause Vedha of 5, 10, 15, 30 Lunar Tithies and Saturday which is not
possible in normal course.
Benefic planets : Moon, Mercury, J upiter and Venus cause benefic vedha
aspect only. They are 100% benefic.
Malefic Planets : Sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu, will cause malefic
Vedha aspect only, although they may be in their own signs or even
exaltation signs. They are 100% malefic.
Moon is benefic when it is waxing.
Mercury is benefic when it is alone, specially without any malefic planet.
Vedha aspect of a planet of 2 types. Macro-when a planet aspects a
particular sign. Micro-when a planet aspect a particular pada of a Star. This
type of Vedha is less effective as compared to pada Vedha aspect.
Vedha by 2/3 planets in the same pada, the impact of victorious planet will
prevail. Mars, Mercury, J upiter, Venus and Saturn have only one aspect at a
time depending on their speed.
Malefic planet, if retrograde becomes highly malefic – 200%
Benefic planet, if retrograde becomes highly benefic – 200%.
Malefic planet when it leaves the Vedha Star and shifts to another Star, it
cannot give malefic results.
Vedha of Lunar Tithi in Bright half (Shukla Paksha) is 100%, whereas
Vedha in Dark half is only 50%.
Each Tithi has its own consonant. So when Tithi has Vedha aspect, the
consonant is also having Vedha automatically. Similarly, sign of a Tithi is
also having Vedha.
When a planet is causing Vedha of a particular sign, it’s vowel consonant &
Tithis are also having Vedha automatically.
Retrograde planet on first pada of Krittika, 4
th
pada of Magha, 1
st
pada of
Anuradha, 1
st
pada of Dhanistha causes Vedha of 4 vowels – 5, 10, 15, 30 &
Saturday.
Special Note on Vedha.
Vedha means a special relationship between the planet in motion and other
celestial bodies, which are fixed in the SBC of the native. Aspect by planet
play important role in influencing human life, nations, commerce, trade,
influencing agricultural products, market fluctuations. The benefic or
malefic nature, it’s motion (speed), its conjunction with other planets – when
2 planet occupying same longitude in a star or its pada, or aspect by 2
planets occupying 2 different signs but planets opposite each other at a
distance of 180 degree eg Sun 10 degree in Aries and Saturn 10 degree in
Libra. This aspect is most dangerous.
In addition to the above, when birth star is not known, the vedhas aspect
should be considered by the first letter of the individual name either vowel
of consonant.
Simple way of onterpreting Sarvatho Bhadra Chakra by Vedha of malefic
planets, very bad results occu if one the other hand is effect by vedha aspect
of benefic planets will be benefic.
Total effect of Vedha aspect of subha and sibha planets are to be considered
and the greater side will give good or bad results as may be indicated.
Now Simple Example
1. Let us consider that retrograde Saturn is passing through the star
“Rohini”. Hence the Saturn causes vedha through right side aspect
affecting ‘U’ Vowel and Ashwini star. Hence the transit is bad for
people having first name starting with ‘U’ vowel and also those born
under Ashwini fear.
If in the place of Saturn, Vedha is passing through the star Rohini,
then the results will be very good.
2. If in the above case, if the planet is speedy in transit namely Athichari
then Saturn will see to the Left side and the letter Va, Mithuna Rashi
and will also affect the letter ‘AA’ the people having names starting
with VA and RA, Mithuna Rashi people as well as well as people
having their name starting with ‘O’ and also Swathi born people will
have malefic results.
Now let us take that Saturn is in ordinary transit, it aspects front side. It will
affect the people born in Abhijit nakshatra. The result are as under for the
front aspect.
1. Front aspect of Sun causes worries
2. Front aspect of Mars results in loss of money.
3. Sanu similarly causes affliction of health and longevity.
4. Rahu or Ketu similarly causes impediments and obstruction.
5. Waning Moon causes difficulties and full Moon causes benefic results
(comforts, etc).
6. Venus in similar position gives dress, jewels, vahana yoga and new
vehicles.
7. Mercury in the similar Vedha gives keen intellect, progress, especially
through writing and publication of books.
8. If J upiter is causing vedha all benefic results, including comfort,
enjoying luxuries, money, marriage, children, etc will be enjoyed.
Second Example
Suppose Sun is placed in Aridra Star its aspect will be front aspect, this will
affect Poorvasadha nakshatra born people.
In the same position, if waxing Moon is transiting it will also cause vedha to
Poorvasadha people and will give them full good results. Similarly, the
results of vedha caused by other planets should be considered.
The result of planet occupying the 27 stars and how they cause vedha is

Examples
We have already given some examples in the beginning. Now we will look
into some more.
Though we can work out actual examples for transit of all planet for the
present we will consider only J upiter and Saturn.
As on date (22-12-2000) J upiter is transiting Krittika 4
th
padha retrograde
gets direct motion on 25-01-2001 and passes to the star Rohini only on 13-
02-2001. In this case, the planet is retrograde. Hence his aspect will be
towards right in creating vedha.
1. According to the standard texts in this case the J upiter create vedha to
people born in Bharani star people with the first letter of this first
name in the vowel AA people born in Rishaba Rashi, people with the
first letter of their name in the consonant THA as well as people born
in Vishaka star by right side aspect. These people will have good
results due to the vedha created. It should be not benefic planet
(J upiter in this case) give good results when they cause vedha to stars.
When they are retrograde, it gives immense good results (double
benefic results and the reverse in the case of malefic).
Now let us take the case of an individual whose birth star is Bharani.
This man should get good results now creating vedha to third star by
right side asepect due to J upiter being in 2
nd
. Now J upiter being
retrograde, will give immense good results (and the conventional if
J upiter should give bad results in the conventional dictum, the reverse
results namely very good results should happen. This is the
uniqueness of Sarvatho Bhadra Chakra.
2. Now take the case of Saturn. Saturn is malefic planet who gives
malefic results only to the constituents with which he produces vedha.
Now he is retrograde in Krittika star. He becomes direct only on 25-
01-2001, after which his malefic results will be somewhat reduced.
Saturn for that matter any planet in Krittika star produces vedha with
same instances of constituent star given above for J upiter.
Now letus take the case of some man who is born in Bharani star.
Saturn creates vedha to Bharani star with right side aspect.
For Bharani people Saturn will be in second house from their Rashi
Krittika will be the Sampath Thara from their birth star. Though this is
last 2.5 years of Sadesathi beginning in Sampath Thara, he may
minimize the bad results. But since he produces vedha with Bharani,
these will be malefic only, be retrograde in vedha, it gives malefic
results in Double Quantum (Sadesathi will be too bad for him)
As explained above J upiter producing Vedha to Bharani people being
he also in retrograde. He will give good results only being retrograde
and also benefic.
Unfortunately since both these varsha grahas peculiarly enough are in
the same star and also retrogrades and those good and bad results get
cancelled. However we can conclude that as long as J upiter will be in
the star Krittika, Saturn’s bad result as Sadesathi will not affect the
native. This is a rare consideration only. Along with this, the effects
produced by vedha caused by the planets by aspects over the Tithis,
the Rashis etc of birth of the native can also be assessed and the nature
of collective good and bad effects can also be judged. However the
prominent consideration is only of Vedas produced on rashis and birth
stars.
Similarly, Sarvatho Badra Chakra result should be judged for the
transit results of other planets.
JUDGEMENT OF HOROSCOPES
( Western Method)
HOROSCOPE reading is essentially a synthetic process, the different
components of which we have explained in some detail in the previous
chapters. All one has to do in judging a horoscope is to collect all the
relevant information revealed by planetary positions, house positions,
aspects, etc., and syhthesize them with a little imagination, remembering
always the environment of the native.
The first thing that demands our attention in a horoscope, especially when it
belongs to a new-born child, is whether the native will live long or not. For
that we must consider the nature of the rising sign, its Lord, the nature of the
planets rising, the condition of Moon and Sun and the lord of the eighth
house. If the Sun, Moon and Lord of the 8
th
house are strong predict a long
life.
The opposite will be the result when:
1. Saturn, Uranus or Mars is near the rising degree and afflicted by the
ruler of the 8
th
house without benefic aspects from J upiter or Venus.
2. The greater Sun, Moon and lord of the ascendant are afflicted, the
shorter will be the life.
3. Children born during the course of an eclipse.
For the physical description of a person, look for the rising sign, the ruler of
the ascendant, planets aspecting the ascendant, along with the signs they
occupy. The effects have been individually described in the earlier chapters.
There will be bodily defects in the following combinations: -
1. Sun and Moon afflicted in Capricorn, Aquarius or Pisces.
2. Capricorn, Aquarius or Pisces rising and malefics afflicting the rising
degree.
3. Defects in those parts of the body (represented by the house) where a
malefic is situated and badly aspected.
4. The native will be deaf when:-
(a) Mercury is in the 12
th
house or is lord of the 12
th
house afflicted
by Mars, Saturn, Sun or Uranus,
(b) The house corresponding to the ear and its lord are afflicted.
5. If Uranus occupies the sixth house and Mercury is afflicted, the native
will be subject to an ailment which will defy doctors and be possibly
incurable.
6. (a) If Sun or Moon is in Aquarius and is afflicted by Saturn or Mars
by opposition or conjunction the native will be blind; only in the case
of Moon, there is hope of remedy.
(b) Defect of the eye is indicated also when Mercury or Venus is
combust, i.e., very near the Sun.
SPECIAL POINTS
If any of Pisces, Linra, Aquarius happen to be the 2
nd
house and Mercury or
Venus be there without affliction, the native will be marked for eloquence.
If, however, Mercury afflicted by Saturn occupied either Cancer, Scorpio or
Pisces he will stammer.
For purposes of finance we look for the Moon and planets in the 2
nd
house
and 10
th
house in the case of men and Sun instead of moon in the case of
women. The place of Fortuna also has great influence on one’s wealth.
Mars in the 2
nd
house badly aspected by Venus leads to financial losses
caused by luxury. Saturn in the same, well aspected, makes for wise
economy; badly aspected, for parsimony and avarice.
For problems relating to love, children, speculation, etc., we look for the 5
th
house. Venus in that house badly aspected in women indicated strong love
life. If Uranus or Neptune be there or rule the house, and afflicted it
indicates perversion.
If the planet in the 5
th
house rules the 2
nd
house, and/or the planet in the 2
nd
house rules the 5
th
house it denotes great lcuk in gambling or lotteries.
Moon badly aspected in the 7
th
house denotes changes; if it is badly aspected
by Mars it denotes separation; afflicted by J upiter in connection with the 7
th
house denotes divorce.
An angle between the Mars of a male horoscope and the Venus of a female
horoscope makes for strong physical attraction, reciprocity of luminaries in
the 1
st
and 7
th
houses between two horoscopes denotes strong affinity
between two people.
The cusp of the 6
th
house and the cusp of the 8
th
house are the headlights of
accident. Affliction there of Mars or Uranus by another planet or for that
matter any planet occupying the ascendant afflicted denotes accident. If Sun
and Moon connected with the above danger spots are afflicted the accident
will be serious. The part of the body liable to injury can be guessed by
reference to the sign from which the malefic influence proceeds.
Sun in the 9
th
house is male horoscope and Moon in female horoscopes
denote philosophical or religious inclination. If the house, its occupant or
ruler is badly aspected, permanent residence in foreign countries is not
advisable.
Although the 10
th
house is generally considered as the house of occupation,
yet the root of occupation lies with the 1
st
house. Saturn in 10
th
house
denotes rise in the latter half of native’s life; Mars for rise through one’s
own energy; J upiter indicated occupation in connection with law or
officialdom; Uranus in the 10
th
house indicated rise by revolution, machines,
electricity, invention, etc.
Successful businessmen need strong 2
nd
house and well-placed, well-
aspected Mercury. Strong connection between Venus and other planets is
required for becoming successful artists. Strong Mars or Uranus in a
horoscope indicates an engineer to technician, while strong J upiter indicates
a politician.
A bad Mercury-Neptune combination is indicative of the criminal; Mars in
bad aspect with Saturn or Neptune points to the murder suspect; if the 5
th
house is also involved, murder by a sexual cause is indicated.
GENERAL
“It may be said, in fact, that the more the planets in a horoscope are angular
the more is the subject of the horoscope impressed with the peculiarities and
potencies of such planets, making in effect a personality strong enough to
force itself into public notice whether for good or evil. Thus, while it gives
an apparent independence of character, because of marked individuality, it
also brings them under greater compulsion and in a sense into greater
servitude. For those to attain to positions of great eminence hold them only
by continual effort, untiring watchfulness and constant anxiety. ‘They
cynosure for wandering eyes,’ they must play their elected part without
recess, or sink into oblivion. Those on the other hand in whose horoscopes
the planets are in succedent positions owe their measure of success not so
much to prominence before the world or to the compulsion of circumstances
but rather to steadfast endurance and application; being by nature plodders
than pioneers. But when the majority of planets are cadent there is seen to be
a degree of indifference to the common ambitions of life and a peculiar
inconsequence of temperament.” – Sepharial.
JUDGEMENT OF HOROSCOPE
(Indian Method)
the principles of judgment according to the Indian system are pretty much
the same as those of the Western system. The rule of thumb method will be
to take the houses one by one and examine them in all their aspects. The
effects held out by each house will depend upon (1) The nature of the house
(2) the nature of its lord (3) nature of its dispositor (4) influence of other
planets upon it and (5) the state of the particular Karaka planets.
KARAKAS
According to both the systems, certain planets are always responsible for
certain aspects of human life, irrespective of the lagans or other changing
factors in a horoscope. Below is given a list of the karakas and their charge.
Sun Karaka for father, if birth is during daytime, soul, gold, fame,
government.
Moon for Mother during night, body, mind, cold, silver, milk.
Mars Younger brother, husband, accidents, weapons, bravery.
Mercury Maternal-uncle, nephew, education, trade, eloquence, writing.
J upiter Children, elder brother, honours, priesthood, gnana.
Venus Wife, romance, art, jewels, trade, mother, during day.
Saturn Poverty, dishonour, longevity, livelihood, unpleasantness, father
during night.
Rahu Paternal grandfather, spiritual gnana, poison, pilgrimage.
Ketu Maternal grandfather, moksha, leprosy.
We can add from our experience that Uranus be taken as karaka for
electricity, Neptune for psychology and Pluto for ideologies.
GENERAL
A number of planets occupying exaltations, own houses, trines or angles and
strong J upiter, Venus and Mercury will suggest a prosperous life.
A well-placed, well-aspected Moon will also suggest the same.
Benefic, planets in Kendra, panapara and apokliha houses will indicate a
happy tume during childhood, middle age and late in life respectively. Also
good yogas.
Misery should be predicted when malefics are placed in a similar manner.
Look for the 9
th
house lord. If he is exalted or strong, or occupies 1, 3 or 9
th
house, say that this will be glorious life.
It is always advisable to consider bhavas with reference to (1) Lagna (2) the
Moon and (3) karaka. This process will go a great way in clearing doubts.
Lords of the 5
th
and 9
th
houses will do good whereas those of 3
rd
, 6
th
and 11
th
houses will not.
Malefics, if lords of Kendra houses or trines will do good whereas benefics
as Kendra lords will not; J upiter and Venus specially so.
Lords of 2
nd
and 12
th
houses will be greatly influenced by company and
aspects by other planets.
Lord of the 8
th
house (Sun and Moon excepted) will be unfavorable except
when he is lord of lagna when he is bound to do good.
The association of the lords of Kendra and trikona is capable of doing
immense good, even though they may, independently, be harmful to the
native.
An analysis of the different possible dispensations of the planets with
reference to each of the twelve bhavas is worth attempting. The result will
be found to be tabulated on a later page under the title Table of
Yogakarakas.
BHAVAS IN DETAIL
In order to have a complete picture of a horoscope, each of the twelve
houses or bhavas should be situated in all its bearings and then a synthetic
version should be put out.
The principles governing the examination of the different bhavas is simple.
Each bhava or house should be treated as lagna and tested for strength or
weakness and their sum-total would apply to the horoscope as a whole.
Those bhavas which contain the benefics Venus, Mercury or J upiter; or are
aspected by them without being vitiated by the company or aspects of other
planets will yield favorable results. This is true of lagna as of the remaining
eleven bhavas. At the same time if the lords of bhavas be similarly aspected
or joined by the said benefics, unaspected and unaccompanied by others, the
bhavas become doubly strong.
Those bhavas which contain neecha planets lords of 8
th
or 12
th
houses, will
be considerably weakened.
Bhavas occupied by own, uchcha, or friendly planets will thrive.
Bhava lords occupying 6
th
, 8
th
or12th houses or unfavorable planets
occupying bhavas are detrimental to the bhavas. But if they are aspected by
benefics, the effects will be reversed.
Bhava lords occupying Kendra or trikons positions, and aspected by
benefics, or their occupying uchcha, own or friendly positions will
strengthen the bhavas.
All kinds of prosperity should be predicted for those bhavas whose trines
and angles are occupied by benefics and not occupied or aspected by
malefics, nor containing the lords of 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
houses. A reverse
position will mean the opposite result. If mixed, mixed results will follow.
Complete destruction of bhava should be predicted when the Sun occupied
the 8
th
from it, lord of bhava be combust, and no benefic lord of the 8
th
keeps
company.
Lords of bhavas bracketed with 8
th
house lord indicate the destruction of the
bhavas.
If the lord of a bhava occupies 6
th
, 8
th
or 12
th
house position or be neecha or
in enemy’s house, then the planet occupying the bhava, however good, is
incapable of lifting it from the morass.
A similar disability in the navamsha chart, too, will indicate the same result
and vice-versa..
Although ill-placed in the lagna kundali, if lords of bhavas occupy uchcha,
own or friendly houses in the navamsha chart, or be aspected by benefics in
the navamsha chart, those bhavas are progressively productive of good
result.
It will become evident from the last two rules how important is the
navamsha chart. It may totally change the face of a horoscope. Hence it is
necessary to erect the correct navamsha kundali in each case and predictions
should not be given without reference to it.
A very important consideration in the evaluation of the strength of bhavas is
this. Suppose a bhava lord is strong by position, say in a friend’s house,
whether in the lagna kundali or the navamsha kundali. Then if that friend
happens to be weak by neecha or similar disability, then the whole bottom is
knocked out of you contention that the original bhava is strong. It follows
that when the dispositors are strong by positions like uchcha, friend’s or own
placed, then the original bhavas even when weak, become strong.
A bhava is said to be strong when friends of its lord, his uchcha lord, that
planet to which that bhava is uchcha, occupy 11
th
, 2
nd
or 3
rd
places. But these
planets should not be neecha, combust, or be enemies to the houses.
The strength of a bhava is proportionate to its navamsha.
Predominance of malefic influences on bhavas will destroy them.
The destruction of a bhava will also take place during the pendency of the
dasa or bhukti of the planet which happens to be the lord of the 2
nd
or 7
th
from that bhava or posited there.
Here are some special points to be remembered in this connection; a good
aspect of the lord of the lagana to a particular bhave will ensure its success.
But it a malefic planet happens to be the lord of bhava and aspects the same,
then success is doubtful.
One must predict the nature of a house indication from the nature of the
influence that house receives.
Suppose we are considering the first house: an aspect to this house from the
lord of the 6
th
house will cause trouble through enemies; aspects of 8
th
house
lord will cause danger to life; aspect of 12
th
house lord will cause penury.
House indications will be enlivened when the significators pass through
sympathetic planets in the horoscope, by transit or during their dasas and
bhuktis vide infra.
Two opposite indications of two different planets will not destroy each
other. Each will be felt at its own time as explained above.
One planet may have two conflicting effects to bestow with reference to a
single bhava, because some planets have double house rulership. In that
case, whichever is the stronger of the two will prevail.
The question of direction (East, West, etc.) with reference to a bhava will be
decided by one of these:-
(1) lord of Bhava (2) planet occupying it (3) the planet aspecting it (4)
the navamsha of the bhava lord (5) the navamsha of the bhava-
karaka.
A bhava fructifies when (1) the lord of the lagna or (2) lord of the bhava or
(3) karaka planet or (4) J upiter transits one of these: the bhava, the houses
occupied by the bhava lord either in the rasi kundali or in the amsa chart or
their trines.
When the eighth house lord transits any of the above places, defect to the
bhava should be anticipated.
Whenever a planet, crosses the lagna or the place occupied by the lord of
lagna by transit, you must expect at that time such effects as are indicated in
the original horoscope as being due to that planet.
The same will be the effect when the lord of the lagna behaves in a similar
manner with reference to any planet.
LONGEVITY
We have indicated in a previous chapter certain factors that are detrimental
to the life of the new-born child. We now continue to examine what other
factors contribute to balarishta.
1 Adverse planets on both sides of the lagna and the house which the Moon
occupies.
2 Moon either in the 6
th
or 8
th
house aspected by adverse planets.
3 Weak Moon in the 8
th
house and adverse planets in angles and trines.
4 Moon in lagna along with Saturn or Rahu or Mars occupying the eighth
house.
In all the above cases it is assumed that the planets receive no beneficial rays
from J upiter and that the essential planets are not strong. Otherwise the
afflictions would be considerably mitigated.
The following combinations indicate long life:-
(1) Lord of lagna strong, lord of 8
th
house a little less strong, the
dispositor of langa-dhipa strong, Moon strong, Moon’s dispositor
strong, lords of lagna, eighth house and Sun on friendly terms,
absence of affliction to Saturn (karaka for longevity); the same for
lagna, 8
th
house and 10
th
house.
(2) Benefics in Kendra and malefics in upchaya,
(3) Lord of lagna in exaltation and aspected by J upiter, at the same time
lord of 8
th
house strong.
MARRIAGE
The 7
th
house indicated marriage; hence this house must be free from
affliction for a happy marriage. Also its lord, and the lord of the house it
occupies and Venus (karaka for wife) or Mars (karaka for husband) must be
strong and free from affliction.
Affliction of wife is indicated if –
1. Sun occupied the 7
th
houses in the Rasi kundali and the house of Mars
in the Navamsa kundali.
2. Lords of second, seventh houses or Venus in the sixth, eighth or
twelfth house and/or also otherwise afflicted.
3. Venus hemmed in between two malefics or malefics situated in the
second, fourth or eighth house from that of Venus.
The number of wives a man will marry is determined, inter alia, by the
number of planets in the 7
th
house, the malefics denoting death.
Venus or Lord of 7
th
house occupying even navamshas indicate more than
one wife.
If the Lord of the 7
th
house along with anyone of Sun, Moon, Mercury,
Venus and Mars occupies the sixth, eighth or the twelfth house, the native
will not enjoy married life in full measure.
The lagna of the girl whom a man will marry will be one of these:
1. Either the 5
th
or 9
th
, from the house occupied by the lord of that man’s
lagna or his 7
th
house.
2. The houses of exaltation of the lords of the 1
st
or the 7
th
house in the
man’s horoscope.
The direction of the locality in which the girl is born is determined as
follows:
Of the lord of the 7
th
house, the occupant of the 7
th
house and Venus
ascertain which is the most powerful. The direction denoted by the house
owned by that planet will be the required direction.
The time of marriage can also be found by the following methods:
1. When either Venus or the lord of the 7
th
house transits the house
occupied by the lord of the first house either in the rasi chart or
navamsha chart of their trines.
2. According to the dasa system, marriage will take place in the dasa of
either the lord of the 7
th
house or the planet powerfully aspecting it
especially when the time is propitious by Gochara (described later)
also.
3. When J upiter transits the house occupied by the lord of the 7
th
house
either in the rasi or navamsha chart.
