"HOW TO JUDGE GENERAL FORTUNE THROUGH ASTROLOGY" "BIN SANTOSH NA KAAM NASAHIN, KAM ACHHAT SUKH SAPNAHIN NAHIN";

This verse from "Sri Ramcharitmanas" gives us the key to happiness. Unless one feels content with one’s lot, the mind would be restless and would always be craving for something or the other. Jupiter and the Sun, when strong, indicate the overall happiness in a nativity including elevation of the soul. So to say, happiness and spiritual attainments in life are indicated by the position of Jupiter and the Sun in a nativity. The Sun is the significator of father, status in life, vitality, soul and is secondary significator for male progeny. Jupiter, the planet of "Divine Grace" is significator for all the good things in life. It is the lord of the ninth sign of the zodiac and natural significator for bhagya (fortune). Its main significations are blessing one with auspiciousness, sons, wealth, good conduct, ministership and good health by giving a healthy liver which is the factory of human body for nourishment of all its parts. It also represents charitable disposition. The learned Kalayana Verma in his book, Saravali, stated that Jupiter rules auspiciousness, virtue, prowess, preceptorship, deputation, gold, social position, gains, residence and sons. Varahamihira in Brihat Jataka says that Jupiter represents wisdom and happiness. It is moral and controls treasury. Saravarth Chintamani, states that whenever in a nativity Jupiter is in fall, the native concerned is less virile, grieved and is in adversity, mean in conduct, dunce, bad end, penury, serves others, bereft of auspiciousness, memory, purity, etc. Experience shows that one is not only grieved but crosses the border of morality/wisdom to achieve one's ends and becomes selfish and unsatisfied. One is intemperate. Efforts made do not give desired results. Both physical and mental sufferings are caused to the native. It is especially harmful in the case of females as it is the significator of "husband" in a female nativity. In Indian cultural background a female is treated as "reborn" after her marriage takes place. Her post-marital life depends on the position of Jupiter in her natal chart to a large extent. The life may seem to be settled otherwise but during the main/sub-period of a weak and afflicted Jupiter, it suddenly becomes shattered or crumbled. Jupiter, who is known for removing afflictions/weakness of other planets and houses, when afflicted itself, causes misfortunes. The lord of the ninth house when strong in the nativity, acts as an additional Sun for the person. Before citing a few charts where the natives met with misfortunes changing the course of their lives during the main period/bhukti of a weak and afflicted Jupiter, we would like to add that astrological advice does have the competence of reducing the mental and physical sufferings caused. The parents of the children born with such combinations will have to work very hard from the very beginning in forming the right attitude of kindness and helping/serving others. Righteous conduct is the key to all remedial measures. To sum up, the significations of Jupiter suffer in case it is weak or afflicted. Though in some cases the lord of the ninth house may either occupy the house or aspect it fully, yet during the sub-period of an eclipsed Jupiter the native is aggrieved on account of the significations of Jupiter.

Due to such influences on MEP by a strong functional . it is very important that we understand the method of analyzing the dasa (main period) & bhukti (sub-period) results. (3) The significations of the houses where the planet is placed. For example the Sun rules father. MOST EFFECTIVE POINT (MEP) The rising degree in the ascendant is known as the most effective point of all the houses. this most malefic planet creates tension(s) with regard to the matters represented by the house/planet involved. besides their general significations. The descending order for the weak planets is a combust planet. male child.

For example. For example. However. a close impact of a funcitonal malefic planet on the MEP of a MT sign house may not allow the planet ruling that MT sign house to show good results in its sub periods even if the said planet is strong in the natal chart. RELIABILITY OF TREATING A HOUSE AS ASCENDANT FOR SIGNIFIED RELATIONSHIP We cannot treat a house as ascendant for the relation signified by that house. children. We can't decipher educational prospects of father. it not only mars the initiatives of the person but during the subperiods of both the Moon and Saturn it will not allow any ventures/initiatives of the persons to succeed. etc. The Sun is lord of the ninth house while the Moon is aspecting and malefically influencing the ninth house. we desist from doing and recommending the same. the significations of that house will not bother the person. we can see whether the person will derive happiness from his children or at a particular time whether the child is enjoying or in trouble but we cannot identify about the educational or professional or emotional matters of a child from one's chart in details. Suppose 23 degree rises in the Ascendant. Any planet conjunct within 5 degrees on either side i. the malefic impact on the third house and during the sub-periods of the Moon and Saturn would be quite grave. In such cases if the planet Sun is placed and strong as in this case. from the twelfth house which is the fourth house from the ninth house but sometimes just for an estimation of status in general of father. The effects on a natal chart are due to fixed angular position of planets with reference to a particular place on the earth for a particular time. it can be seen from the Sun and the ninth house. Since the Moon is conjunct with the most effective point of the third house. As the Saturn is badly placed in the sixth house and is weak due to its being in the state of infancy. Therefore. so far as the natal influences are concerned. natal or transit. Let us see the application of MMP and MEP while analyzing the results of sub-periods.e. his assets. . The aspect of the Moon to the most effective point to the ninth house would also cause obstructions to the significations of the ninth house during the sub-periods of both the Sun and the Moon. parents. COMPREHENSION TOOLS The students keep on asking about the status of the house containing non-mooltrikona sign of the same planet. You will find in your experience that in the absence of benefic or malefic close influence on the most effective point (MEP) of a house. at all. The Moon is most malefic planet (MMP) as it rules the eighth house. RETROGRADE PLANETS This is only a visionary phenomenon as this occurs due to different speeds of the planets in relation to the earth. with the help of an example. within 18 degrees to 28 degrees in any house would be influencing the significations of the house in question in a pronounced manner depending upon the functional nature of that planet. the most effective point of all the houses will be 23 degree. The Systems' Approach considers a planet weak if it is placed in the mooltrikona sign of another weak planet. The planet Moon is placed at 24 degrees in the third house in the sign Aquarius ruled by Saturn. the author is of the firm view that retrograde planets are to be treated in a normal way as per their longitudes. etc. the impact of the influence of the Moon would be a little bit milder than if the Sun is badly placed and weak.Similarly. elder and younger siblings and friends. ninth house for father and the seventh house for wife.benefic planet even the sub period of a weak planet would be blessing the native with good or very good results. The detailed analysis can only be made from an individual's horoscope for his/her own self only and general indications for spouse. Though the classical as well as some of the modern commentators have ascribed different views for the results of retrograde planets.

GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF PLANETS Strong Planets A strong natal planet protects and promotes its general significations and the significations of its . However. if the Sun is placed in the sign Scorpio and the planet Mars is placed in the sign. The peak point of exaltation or debilitation has very little relevance.INFANCY When 0 degree power is zero When 1 degree power is 20% When 2 degrees power is 40% When 3 degrees power is 60% When 4 degrees power is 80% When 5 degrees power is 100% OLD AGE When 30 degrees power is zero When 29 degrees power is 20% When 28 degrees power is 40% When 27 degrees power is 60% When 26 degrees power is 80% When 25 degrees power is 100% Exaltation sign adds to the strength. the transit influences of a planet appearing to be in retrograde motion and then direct motion are prolonged on a specified degree(s). during the course of its subperiod both the positions-natal and transit-of the planet under operation are to be studied. The result of a particular house will be influenced by a transiting planet when it is near to its MEP depending upon its functional nature whether benefic or malefic. strength. then the classical works considers this as exchange of houses by the Sun and Mars. we do not recognize this concept. for its placement. EFFECTS OF EXCHANGE OF HOUSES/ASTERISMS The situation. etc. Under the Systems' Approach..However. is considered as exchange of houses or exchange of nakshatra (asterisms). For example. depending upon its strength. MEASURING CAPACITY OF PLANETS While studying the impact of a planet. the Moon is with bright rays when it is 72 degrees away from the Sun on either side. MEASURING STRENGTH OF PLANETS IN INFANCY/OLD AGE The results of the planets in the state of infancy or old age vary in degree of strength as per their longitudes as detailed below. separately. relationship with other planets. in which a planet ‘A’ is placed in a sign or nakshatra ruled by the planet ‘B’ and the planet ‘B’ is placed in a sign or nakshatra ruled by the planet ‘A’. Each planet is considered. Leo. BRIGHT RAYS Bright rays means a non-combust planet.

Any planet is considered strong when it is not in the state of weakness. it can only be considered afflicted under the exact influence of any functional malefic. 2) an aspect from a functional malefic planet placed in a dusthana. 2) The most effective point of its house of placement is afflicted by a functional malefic planet. Afflicting Planets All planets can become afflicted. 6) It occupies its sign of debilitation. Then the otherwise "strong" planet should be considered afflicted (and weak) even when the orb of affliction is of two degrees. . i. By descending order of weakness. So whenever any planet is afflicted. 3) It is conjunct or aspected by any functional malefic planet within an orb of one degree. third and ninth houses get magnified. A transit functional malefic planet will afflict always its natal position by conjunction or aspect. mooltrikona or own sign. it is treated as an afflicted planet. any planet becomes weak when: 1) The most effective point of its mooltrikona sign is afflicted by a functional malefic planet within an orb of one degree. (1) to (3) above. its longitude is between 10º to 20º in a particular sign. It can increase its strength if: a) it is young. NOTE: In serial nos. its strength would be in proportion to the strength of its dispositor. b) it occupies own or good navamsa and other divisions. The significations of the house having a mooltrikona sign of an afflicted planet are harmed. within an orb of one degree for mooltrikona signs or within an orb of five degrees for nonmooltrikona signs. But when the planet is not weak for other reasons. 5) more than one functional malefic planet at the same time. c) it is under the close influence of the functional benefic planets. However. 5) It occupies malefic houses from the ascendant. The results of planets placed in the Sun-like houses that is the second. this is a minor weakness.e. when the affliction is special or multiple i. d) it occupies its exaltation. 7) It is in the state of infancy or old-age. Weak Planets A weak natal planet is not capable of fully protecting/promoting its general significations and the significations of its mooltrikona house during the course of its sub-periods and during the triple transit functional malefic influences.mooltrikona house. It is very necessary to understand the difference between afflicting planets and afflicted planets. 3) a conjunction with Rahu or Ketu (Rahu-Ketu axis) 4) an aspect of a functional malefic planet afflicted by other(s) functional malefic planet. when it comes from: 1) a conjunction with/ aspect from the most malefic planet. 9) It occupies the mooltrikona sign of a weak planet. except if in its own mooltrikona sign. becoming a weak planet for that reason. Afflicted Planets Whenever a planet is already weak for any other reason and is under the close influence of any functional malefic. 8) It occupies its debilitated sign in navamsa. However. but only the functional malefic planets can be afflicting planets. it becomes weak.e. 10) It is the Moon within 72 degrees either side of the Sun. 4) It is combust due to its nearness to the Sun.

except when placed in its own mooltrikona house in rasi/birth chart. A natal/transit functional malefic planet never afflicts its own mooltrikona house, except when the functional malefic planet is already afflicted and afflicts from a dusthana/malefic house. Dispositor weakness or bad placement affliction is not applicable in this case. The benefit of aspect to the MT sign of FM planet is limited to the proportion of the strength of the FM planet. Dispositor According to the Systems’ Approach, the dispositor is a planet in whose mooltrikona sign another planet is located in the natal chart. Suppose in a natal chart the Sun is placed in the sign Libra ruled by Venus. In this case Venus will be the dispositor of the Sun. No planet which is in a nonmooltrikona sign will have a dispositor i.e. the planet(s) in Taurus, Gemini, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces have no dispositor. If a planet is posited in Aries, its dispositor would be Mars; if a planet is posited in Cancer, its dispositor would be the Moon; if a planet is posited in Leo, its dispositor would be the Sun; if a planet is posited in Virgo, its dispositor would be Mercury; if a planet is posited in Libra, its dispositor would be Venus; if a planet is posited in Sagittarius, its dispositor would be Jupiter; and if a planet is posited in Aquarius, its dispositor would be Saturn. When a functional benefic planet becomes dispositor of an affliction, the results of such affliction will surface during the sub period and transit influence of that functional benefic planet. Similarly, when a functional benefic planet becomes dispositor of a benefic influence or blessing, the results of such benefic influence or blessing will surface during the sub period and transit influence of that functional benefic planet. When a functional malefic planet becomes dispositor of a benefic influence or blessing, the results of such benefic influence or blessing will also simultaneiously surface during the sub period and transit influence of that functional malefic planet provided the functional malefic planet is not involved in a close or exact affliction. When a functional malefic planet becomes dispositor of an affliction, the results of such affliction will surface also during the sub period and transit influence of that functional malefic planet. Caution: Astrologers do not have a television set and cannot give running commentary. The best thing is in the shortest possible time, indicate the strong and weak areas in chart and prescribe appropriate remedies. One acquires credentials or good reputation as an astrologer with one's competence over a period of time. REGARDING TRANSIT The impact of transit functional malefics is on both the functional malefics and the functional benefics. The things governed by the planets would be their general and particular significations. Similarly, when the impact is on the MEP of a house the significations of the house occupied and the house(s) aspected, both MT and Non-MT, would be influenced by the transit planet. Transit of functional benefics over the natal position of functional malefics or close aspect of natal functional malefics on transit functional benefics also spoil the signification of the functional benefics. By transit strength we mean the planet should be strong in the transit. INTERACTION BETWEEN THE SUB-PERIODS AND TRANSIT During the course of the sub-period of a planet the significations of the house ruled by the subperiod lord, the general significations of the planet and the significations of the house where the planet is placed would be touched. The transit means when the planetary position on any given date subsequent to the date of the birth is studied with reference to the ascendant and the position of the planets in the natal chart. For example, let us take a chart with the sign Sagittarius rising in the ascendant. In this chart the

lord of the eleventh house, Venus, is placed in the twelfth house, ruling losses. During the subperiod of the Venus loss of elder brother, income and trouble to friends is indicated. Now, in the transit the functional malefics Rahu/Ketu may form close conjunction/aspect with any of the three: i) most effective point of the eleventh house. ii) the natal position of Venus iii) the transit position of the sub-period lord, Venus. The example chart pertains to a lady born 22nd December 1964, at 0850 hrs at Copenhagen 55N41' 12E'35 CE TIME (GMT + 1). In her case Venus main period (dasa) Venus sub-period (bhukti) started on 24th Oct 1981 and was to run up to 23rd February 1985. Now from the horoscope we would see that an incident like loss of an elder brother is seen in the sub-period of Venus as Venus ruling the elder brother is placed in the house of losses. The transit Venus was of 1 degree in the sign Capricorn on 2nd February 1982. It apparently retrograded and came into contact with transit Ketu at 29 degrees in the sign Sagittarius on the 7th February 1982. Up to the 21st February 1982, the transit Venus and transit Ketu were within 3 degrees range. The sub-period lord was not only weak due to its being in the state of infancy but it was in close conjunction with Ketu. Ketu is also placed in the house of losses in the natal chart and is having the inclinations of causing loss with whatever planet it forms close conjunction or aspect with, the native lost her elder brother. (To understand previous discussion click here to see the chart) The sub-period lord sets the trends as per the lordship and the placement of the planet, besides the other influences on the planet. The transit planets cause influence whenever they come into contact with the natal position or the transit position of the sub-period lord. We hope this gives better understanding into the interaction between the transit results and the sub-period lord results with the help of the above example. EFFECTIVE ORB FOR JUDGING THE INFLUENCE OF NATAL AND TRANSIT CONJUNCTIONS/ ASPECTS In the case of influence of functional malefic planets on other strong transit/natal positions, the orb is one degree on either side while in the case of weak transit/natal positions, the orb is five degrees on either side. In the case of influence of strong functional benefic planets over the strong natal/transit functional benefic planets, the orb is five degrees on either side. In the case of weak natal/transit positions it is one degree on either side. While coming into the mutual aspect/ conjunction with the natal/transit functional malefic planets, the functional benefic planets get malefically afflicted. The maximum influence of the transit or natal conjunction/aspect is when it is within one degree on either side. As soon as the transit influence starts separating, the influence starts tapering down. It is very important to see the strength of the planet on which the transit influence is being studied. For example, if the Sun being the lord of the fourth house and being a functional benefic planet, is in the fourth house and its longitude is eleven degrees, the malefic influence of Jupiter, the most malefic planet for the Taurus ascendant, will be effective when Jupiter is between 10 degrees to 12 degrees in the signs Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius or Aries because the Sun is strongly placed in the natal chart. Please do not forget to consider the transit strength of this Sun. If the Sun in a Taurus nativity is placed in the sign Libra at a longitude of five degrees then the transit influence of Jupiter within zero degree to 10 degree from the signs Libra, Aries, Aquarius or Gemini would be effective. However, once the longitude of the transit Jupiter is 5 degrees, the transit influence would start separating and tapering down but it will clear the affliction only when the longitude of Jupiter is over ten degrees. We hope the readers would be able to understand this dimension for better analysis.

During the sub period of a planet all the impacts on the house, which contains the MT sign of the said planet, also come into force. Due to such influences on MEP by a strong functional benefic planet even the sub period of a weak planet would be blessing the native with good or very good results.Similarly, a close impact of a funcitonal malefic planet on the MEP of a MT sign house may not allow the planet ruling that MT sign house to show good results in its sub periods even if the said planet is strong in the natal chart. The orb of affliction for a non-mooltrikona sign house is five degrees on either side of the most effective point of the house. CHALIT CHAKRA This is a redundant concept so far as the Systems' Approach (SA) is concerned. The SA identifies the functional nature of theplanets on the basis of the ascendant. Each planet is treated in the house in which it is placed. A planet placed in the eighth house going to seventh or ninth house as per chalit chakra can never give good results. Its periods will bestow weak results because of the position of the planet being weak due to its bad placement and there will be obstructions and mishaps. The astrologers, who consider chalit chakra fail in their predictions. IMPACT OF RAJYOGAS OR DHANA YOGAS Impact of the so-called rajyogas and dhana yogas formed with the natal conjunctions, aspects and placements accrues only if the planet(s) placed in a good house, is unafflicted and strong. Whenever the planets ruling the benefic houses conjoin or aspect closely, they form good yoga (say rajyoga) connected with the indications of both the houses involved provided they are strong and unafflicted. If they involve a house ruling income and/or wealth they produce dhanayogas. BAD PLACEMENT The book, "Self Learning Course in Astrology" gives clear-cut guidance that any planet placed in the sixth, eighth or twelfth house from the ascendant would be treated as a bad placement. The planets are not called badly placed due to their position in a particular sign. In other words bad placement is referred to a malefic house and not to any particular sign. Any planet, even if exalted, becomes weak due to bad placement. IMPACT OF PLACEMENT IN FRIENDLY/ INIMICAL SIGNS The friendship or inimical relationship of planets arising due to placement in the signs ruled by friendly planets or inimical planets only makes the planet comfortable or uncomfortable in doing its work, respectively. The planets work as per their functional nature and strength.. THE EVOLUTION OF SOUL The evolution of the soul depends on the strength of the Sun, Jupiter and the lords of the tenth and first houses. SUN LIKE PLANETS The second house rules status of the person in the society or with the Government. The third house rules the communication power of the person which is an important aspect for leadership. The ninth house is the house of fortune and rules happiness from father and preceptor. The Sun like planets do not cause combustion to other planets. The lords of the second, third and ninth houses, wherever other than the Sun, act like the Sun for the various ascendants: ASCENDANT......SUN LIKE PLANETS 1. Aries........... Jupiter
