I have read the chapter on Argala in the BPHS, but I couldn't understand anything. Could You please explain the principles of Argala to me?



Argala means intervention in the affairs of a sign (Rashi) or graha by another rashi or graha. Argala can be of two types viz., (i) Shubhargala (good intervention) caused by benefic rasi/graha, and (ii) Papargala (bad intervention) caused by malefic rasi/graha. However, such Argala is also obstructed by other rasi/graha. The strength, effect and prevalence of the Argala or obstruction to the argala is determined from the strength of the rasi/graha (determined by the standard methods) causing the Argala and obstruction. The result of the stronger of the two causes it (Argala/obstruction) to prevail. The following rules explain the cause of Argala and the obstruction to it: Cause of argala RULE - I The rasi or planet(s) in the 2nd, 4th and 11th houses from a rasi/graha intervene or cause ‘ Argala’in the affairs of the latter. (UPSJ: 1.1.4) RULE – II Malefic rasi/planet(s) in the 3rd from a rasi/graha also cause ‘ Argala’on the said rasi.

RULE – III The rasi/graha in the 5th also cause secondary level ‘ Argala’on the said rasi." Is it "caused by" or "caused on"? I have so far been under the impression that the exception applies when we find argala *on* the sign containing Ketu (not *by* the sign). Thus the presence of Saturn in the 2nd. The planets in these signs also cause Argala on Ketu.e. As regards Ketu. 4th and 11th counted in the reverse is Scorpio. Thus. my AL is Sagittarius and has Ketu in it. However. 4th and 11th from Sagittarius or Capricorn. Let us say Ketu is in Libra. The primary ones the 2nd. Sun in the . the reckoning of both Argala and Obstruction caused by the said rasi/Ketu is always done in the reverse direction (anti clockwise). the reckoning of both Argala and Obstruction caused by the said rais/Ketu is always done in the reverse direction (anti clockwise).(Note: A malefic/malefics in the 3rd not only cause obstruction of the Argala of the 11th rasi/graha.SANJAY RATH Your understanding is correct. ? FOLLOW-UP QUESTION BY MR. Cn and Sg. Pisces and Libra intervene in its affairs. But. but they themselves cause Argala simultaneously. "EXCEPTION REGARDING KETU In the case of a sign occupied by Ketu.e the 2nd. Exception regarding Ketu In the case of a sign occupied by Ketu. i.NARASIMHA RAO ON KETU EXCEPTION You said. RULE – II The rasi/graha in the 9th obstructs the Argala caused by the rasi/graha in the 5th (Rule – III above). Obstruction of argala RULE – I The rasi/graha in the 3rd. by Vi. 10th and 12th from a rasi/graha obstruct the Argala. Argala means planetary or sign intervention and they are caused on signs and planets alike. 4th and 11th counted in reverse. Libra and Ketu cause argala being in the 4th from Cancer. 10th and 3rd respectively. when we find argalas *on* Libra. for example. Virgo and Aquarius that cause Argala. the AL is Sagittarius and the Argala on the AL is reckoned in the regular order i. This is the way I understood it and possibly it is wrong. 4th & 11th and they are obstructed by the 12th. the reckoning is always in the reverse. When we find argalas on Cancer. => ANSWER BY PT. they are caused by 2nd. Thus for Ketu the 2nd.

Likewise while the Argala planet is in the 2nd quarter of the sign (i. 7 degrees 30 minutes to 15 degrees). the Mokshkaraka Ketu has Subha Argala in the 11th in Aquarius and due to my Ketu related activities I have received gifts and donations to improve my lot. What is the difference between primary and secondary Argala? Regarding Exception of Ketu. ? ANOTHER FOLLOW-UP QUESTION BY DINA-NATHA DAS 1. Thus in Leo Dasa Aquarius Antardasa my elder brother gifted me a Car!! (We should also see the aspect of Aquarius on the A4 in Libra for this not ignoring its Argala on the 4th house as well.e. Later in the notes on the same verse he is giving an example where he is counting in reverse order to reckon the Argala of Rahu which confirms the above verse from BPHS. while the obstructing planet is in the 4th quarter (22degrees 30 minutes to 30 degrees). Santhanam's translation. Also there is very important rule about Argala in the verse 10 of ch 31. the objective is not gained and the person has to use PARAKRAMA BALA to achieve the objective. .) Moon aspected by Venus can be a Dhana Yoga.What is the secondary level Argala? I couldn't find any explanation about secondary level Argala in BPHS. that would indicate that wants to say that we should use reverse counting for reckoning Argala for both nodes. the obstruction indeed will come to pass. the gain is initially denied and the native fights for it and gains it at a later stage." => ANSWER BY PT. Thus. 3rd quarter) will combat the Argala.. the obstruction (planet in 15degrees to 22 degrees 30 minutes i.What does that mean that malefic(s) in 3rd cause Argala themselves simultaneously? 2. Fortunately.SANJAY RATH Malefics in the third suo-moto cause Argala as they also simultaneously obstruct the Argala of the 11th house. In BHPS ch.: " The Argala caused by placement of a planet in the first one fourth part of the Rasi is countered by another placed in the 4th quarter of the respective obstructive Rasi.8th and Ketu in AL causes Kemadruma (Poverty) Yoga which has resulted in taking up a service which can never make the two ends meet!! I guess all honest Govt." Santhanam explains: "If the Argala causing planet is in the first quarter (or first 7 degrees 30 minutes of the sign).. it is said: "As the nodes have retrograde motions.e. Rahu and Ketu. 31. Similarly 2nd quarter's Argala is eliminated by the 3rd quarter placement. the Argalas and obstructions be also counted accordingly in a reverse manner. servants in India will be in such a predicament." Since Santhanam used plural for words node and motion. Since the 11th is the house of Gains. Verses 2-9.

Ketu is the ONLY planet that is working like Ganapati (Tapasya) to take us to Narayana i. in the real sense after death. I accepted that argala caused *by* Ketu and his sign are counted in reverse. Because of Ketu is in AL.DINAKARAN Two malefic planets occupied in each two bhava 5th and 9th . Hence Ketu's Argala is in the reverse as it indicates the planets favouring or disfavouring the attaining of Moksha. I am not satisfied by the explanation you gave and will wait for more explanation later. he can say: "see . BY This is a convenient example with Ketu in the arudha lagna. I still cannot see any logic behind this.e. No.the 11th from Ketu (directly counted) has Moon and 3rd from AL also has Moon. However. Thus. I am not questioning "vipareetam ketoh" exception.NARASIMHA ON THE ABOVE EXAMPLE. The same number of planets occupied in each house now is the obstruction . I am referring to the concluding remark quoted above. 9th bhava obstructs the argala. I have Ketu in the AL in Sagittarius with the Moon in Aquarius and no planet in Libra. Moon in Li and AL in Le. Thus on the one hand the Moon gives death. ? RELATED QUESTION BY MR.As regards the Chaturthamsa usage for determining the efficacy of the Argala and its obstruction. I still can't see the relation between reverse counting for Ketu and Ketu being Moksha karaka. This is not always true. I have already explained earlier that the reverse counting is for Ketu ONLY and not for Rahu as along with the other planets Rahu is the cause of rebirth and the fruits. If someone has Ketu is in Sg. Moksha. For example. 3rd from AL and 11th from Ketu (in reverse) coincide and you have nice logic. ? ANOTHER FOLLOW-UP QUESTION MR. this is Bhagya (fortune/Destiny) and we shall discuss this later. because Jaimini maharshi and you taught so. So Moon gives death and helps in the gain of the objective of Moksha" and present a case for forward counting for Ketu also. Moon is also in the 11th from Ketu counted in the reverse direction and helps in the gain of the objective of Moksha and this Argala is unobstructed. and on the other it aids Moksha which can be achieved. the Moon in the 3rd from the AL shows the nature of death and this is unobstructed. I hope with this example it is amply clear that the reverse count is only for Ketu because it is the Moksha karaka.

Saturn's argala on lagna can make him humble.SANJAY RATH Nice question. Each planet's influence on each house can have a positive spin as well as negative spin. I don't think I understand argala. then this can cause actual physical bondage like kidnapping or jail. Does it depend on the planet causing the argala. How does it conclude? Does any remedy to remove the obstruction? Please clarify with need example. i. you can see both these qualities in him depending on dasa and transit influences. What is a good argala and what is bad argala.e. ? ANOTHER RELATED QUESTION ON ARGALA BY MR.SATISH Appreciate if someone can answer the questions on argala. Murli Manohar Joshi's D-10 has lagna and Venus in Gemini.e. How can one be humble and authoritative? Well. If the Argala and its obstruction are equally strong. because Saturn is debilitated and weak. Why did I say Saturn's argala gives humility. Let me give an example. A positive influence.removed or not removed. can be exerted when it has . why did I say Sun's argala on dasamsa lagna makes him forceful and authoritative in his movement in the society (which is somewhat negative)? Why can't it make him a charming and charismatic leader (which is positive)? The answer has to do with benefic/malefic argalas. it constitutes a bandhana Yoga (Bondage). Think of this question: What is a good aspect and what is a bad aspect? Argalas by malefics are bad and argalas by benefics are good. What are the results? Mercury's argala shows that he may be intellectual in nature. Sun's argala may make him forceful and authoritative. which have a negative spin? Similarly.NARASIMHA RAO Yes. Let us take the argalas on lagna. => ANSWER BY MR. and if this is in the 2-12 or 5-9 houses. Dr. servile behavior etc. consistent with the nature of the planet. Sun casts an argala and so do Mercury and Saturn. inhibition. which is a word with a positive spin on it? Why not introvert nature. That is why I always look for natural benefics in these places. This world can be very evil for some people depending on their karma. If malefics alone are involved. But the dominating influence will be Sun's. Sun in Cancer and Saturn and Mercury in Aries. in career). Have any rules to cancel " The Karaka bhava nasa" ? => ANSWER BY PT. Rahu and Saturn involved gives being beaten with chains or other forms of torture while Gulika afflicting shows the use of poisonous substances. Lagna in D-10 shows one's true nature when moving in society (i.

different divisional charts and different lagnas cover different dimensions of human life. power and authority). he is a humble person because of Saturn's benefic argala on lagna (despite Saturn's debilitation). So yogakaraka Saturn's benefic argala on ghati lagna made her popular among masses. They have specific purposes. can be exerted when it has a malefic argala. As I keep trying to show you again and again. Parasara wasn't fooling around when he defined special lagnas and divisional charts.Sept 1999. Lagna shows true nature. it must be that you misunderstood him! While on the topic of strict adherence of Parasari principles of functional nature of planets. OTOH. look for my article on "Kendradhipati dosha" (the malice of a benefic's ownership of a quadrant) in Surya Prakash memorial issue of "The Astrological Magazine" . Saturn signifies popularity among masses. Sun. Final example: Sanjay's D-24 (chart of knowledge) has a benefic argala of Saturn on lagna and benefic argala of Sun on ghati lagna. In matters of knowledge. he is popular among politicians and powerful men. If it doesn't make sense to you or if it doesn't work for you. As far as matters related to ghati lagna (fame and power) are concerned.. In the case of lagna. Saturn signifies mass following and Sun signifies following in the ruling class. Hope you have learnt something from these freewheeling thoughts.. introvert and inhibited nature (negative). because of Sun's argala on ghati lagna. A negative influence. In matters of knowledge. we were dealing with lagna. the positive quality Saturn gives is humility. This is why classics give many qualities for the same planet. In the case of ghati lagna (fame. consistent with the nature of the planet.. is a functional malefic as he owns 3rd house and he gives a forceful and authoritative nature (negative) and not a charismatic and charming personality (positive). [Note: To find functional benefics and malefics for a lagna.a benefic argala. So his argala on lagna can give humble nature (positive) and not servile. Here Saturn owns 8th and 9th from lagna and he is a functional benefic. They too have a purpose. arudha lagna shows perceptions and ghati lagna shows power and authority.] Another example: Madonna's D-10 has ghati lagna and Venus in Taurus and Saturn causes argala on ghati lagna from Pisces. follow Parasara and not modern day savants! What Parasara taught is perfect. Also he did not mention argalas for fun. we have to choose what they stand for based on the varga (divisional chart) at hand and the reference point at hand (lagna. arudha lagna. Attempting to cover all those with one lagna and one chart results in ambiguity and eventually loss of confidence in classics. What does it give her? Humility? In the previous example. ghati lagna etc). . his argala is benefic. When we consider planets and houses. With Saturn being a yogakaraka (owner of 9th and 10th) from Taurus.

while the grahas in graha drishti need not necessarily give such results even though indicative of the same. when graha dristi. at the analysis of a horoscope.all the three being Chara Rasis and does not aspect Aries (also a Chara Rasi) as it is adjacent to it. here it is. Similarly.SANYAY RATH Argala is an intervention of outside influences on a house or significator. Example: Taurus (Sthira Rasi) aspects Cancer. Sagittarius and Pisces aspect each other. The basic rule is (1) All Chara (Moveable signs) Rasis aspect the Sthira (Fixed signs) except the one adjacent.all the three being Sthira Rasis and does not aspect Taurus (also a Sthira Rasi) as it is adjacent to Aries. (3) All the Dwiswabhava (Dual signs) Rasis aspect each other. if a bad element (say Rahu) were to live in the opposite house the negative influence is bound to take place disturbing the peace and harmony of all. NICHOLAY When. ? QUESTION BY Mr. (2) All Sthira Rasis aspect the Chara Rasis except the one adjacent to it. Scorpio and Aquarius . Thus. apply Argala. I hope you get the idea know. These are normally inanimate like a beneficial Ketu argala on Jupiter can give assets like . when rasi dristi? => ANSWER BY PT. Rasi dirshtis are more permanent in nature while the graha drishti indicates only the desire for the significance. Good or bad aspects of a Rashi dirshti are bound to fructify while those of graha drishti only indicate a possibility. Assume a very pious and dharmic person (say Jupiter) living in the opposite house. Rasi Drishti is called sign aspects.Rasi Drishti ? QUESTION BY MR. Example: Gemini. Virgo. His pious and peaceful disposition is certainly going to influence everybody in the neighbourhood. The positive and negative influences of the people living in the opposite house is bound to influence the very living of ours. Libra and Capricorn .SARAJIT Can You please tell me something about the rasi dristi? => ANSWER BY MR.SARAT CHANDER I don't know if Narasimha has already replied to this as I have not followed the mails closely. the grahas occupying the rasis casting rasi drishti are bound to give the results (good or bad) during their periods. Example: Aries (Chara Rasi) aspects Leo. However. Rashi drishti can be said to be akin to two houses opposite each other (or even as stated in points (1) (2) and (3) above) in the neighbourhood and the grahas in such rasis can be compared with the people living in the houses.

this could be with regard to family and so on. One surprising thing is that Varaha Mihira mentions only the planetary aspects. He says that Mars aspects the 7th with one foot. And usually we consider opposition and the special full aspects by Mars. Both Rasi and Graha dristi are to be applied simultaneously. the planets stationed in these signs are like people staying in the houses. Graha's are animate or movable objects like men and Graha dristi indicates desire of individuals or the native himself. because I'm confused. What happens if someone tells you that a Criminal has come to live in the house opposite yours? You have not met the criminal. yet there is going to be an apprehension. What happens if these people are friendly to each other. It ended as expected when Jupiter entered Aries and broke the sarpa yoga. while the vice-versa is not assured. Jupiter with two feet and Saturn with three feet. => ANOTHER RELATED ANSWER BY PT. . This is the effect of Rasi Dristi. Saturn's aspect brings sorrow. Now. Now. the Mantras he says in the morning is going to be beneficial for the house in front as well. For example. it has dristi in its own house and the reconstruction of the place has begun as Mars favours its sign. Argala means intervention while Dristi means aspect. how should I use the aspects.aeroplanes! (This is an extreme position and experience is the best teacher in handling argala). Jupiter and the nodes and on other aspects. ? QUESTION BY Mr. They decide your reaction to information and other inputs from the Nature.GAURANGA DAS I have read the chapter on planetary and sign aspects in BPHS. Saturn. If Saturn aspects the second. These are permanent aspects caused due to the signs. For example. Application of Rasi Dristi is vital in Jyotish. These are very qualitative as the sorrow always comes due to an incorrect perception or desire. you will recall how I had explained the Sarpa Yoga and the war in Yogoslavia. when Mars moved into Scorpio. Argala may have dristi. Rasi dristi are permanent aspects of the signs. Let us call one Aries and the other Scorpio as these houses aspect each other. while other planets give a full aspect on the 7th. As the house and its occupants also benefit from the association with their front door neighbour. like a priest Jupiter in Aries.) Please guide me. Rasi dristi is a permanent aspect while Graha dristi only moulds the desire of the object. (I deduct one foot meaning 1/4 aspect. Does this mean that these are the most important or strong aspects? Another thing is that Parasara not always gives a full aspect to a planet on the opposing sign.SANJAY RATH Imagine two houses facing each other in the opposite sides of a street. 2 feet as 1/2 aspect etc.

Saturn & Jupiter have special aspects. it is because the DESIRES of Jupiter are good. Even Bill Clinton was punished during Jupiter dasa-Ketu Antardasa for his affair with Monica Lewinsky. Eg. Thus. who does not have a head and hence cannot aspect the 7th house.=> ANSWER BY PT. Recently while rereading BPHS bumped against a seeming contradiction. Hope this explains. At the end of the Rashi Dristi chapter Parasara does discuss the 1. 2. Imagine the two rasis as two opposite houses. Thus. Jupiter has slightly more (50%) desire while Saturn has 75% desire. These special aspects are FULL 4pada or 100%. if we say that the aspect of Jupiter is good. Ketu is always punishing people so they become perfect Brahmachari. This is the effect of Rashi Drishti. All planets aspect the seventh. Obviously. which look at each other and the planets. if a dacoit or Rahu were to live there. renounce their wrong desires and attain Jagannatha. They are to understood as two buildings standing in front of each other. But at the same time you cannot escape seeing or ignoring this house or the people living in it as it happens to be just opposite in the immediate neighbourhood. ? FOLLOW UP QUESTION BY Mr.SANJAY RATH A very valid point has been put forth by you. On the other hand. What comes first "the chicken or the egg". WHAT IS SEVENTH HOUSE ASPECT? This is the seventh or KAMA Iccha or the desire for having union with the opposite sex etc. Your point about the quantum of aspect is very Vital. a good neigbour in the opposite house will be most welcome to you.YASOMATINANDANA DAS You were discussing about 7th graha aspects with Sanjay Prabhu. Mars is akin to Hanumanji the Brahmachari who has very little desire (25%) for these things. The lower aspects show that the aspect/ desire is very low. as will have good neighbourly relations and the vibrations of such a relationship will have a good effect. . Obviously the pious qualities of the neighbour will spell good effects on you too. These are the inanimate aspects indicating the fructification of the desires in the forms of physical or material changes on the universe.YASOMATINANDANA DAS Could you explain the difference between Argala and Rashi-drishti? => ANSWER BY Mr. The sign aspects are permanent aspects and do not change with time. imagine Jupiter living in the opposite house. disposited in these rasis as people living in the opposite house and yourself living in the other. you will live fearing the worst constantly. but the outer planets Mars. All the other planets have 100% desire. thus all planets (representing people can be said to be perverts to some degree or the other.SARAT CHANDER I will attempt the reply to rashi drishti. and 3 pada 7th aspects for Mars.. The only exception is KETU. ? ANOTHER RELATED QUESTION BY MR. Thus Ketu becomes a perfect Brahmachari and strives for Moksha. Planetary aspects are like the desire of the planets/ people they represent.

these houses will also show the strong desires the person will have and that these desires will be the cause of sorrow (Saturn's aspect).Cancer is on the other? So really regardless of where Gemini is.12thbed pleasuresbut also because TAURUS itself.so do the qualities of cancer . => ANSWER BY PT.etc .e. Can you help understand in which circumstances are those statements should be applied to avoid seeming contradiction.LAKSHMI DEVI Someone please answer this question. Its aspect on the gains (third aspect -another Upachaya and desire to show Parakrama is next priority with saturn) reduces gains and brings misfortunes. I saw the posts regarding rashi dristi. the aspect on the 3rd house is full in the sense that Saturn knows all that happens out there and that it can fully influence the third house. Thus all planets aspect the seventh or they have the knowledge of the happenings of the house in the seventh from their station. Let us say you have Saturn in the ninth house. Argala ? QUESTION BY MS.etc. about the pada's of dristi while the first part applies to the ability to see things or "have knowledge of". Saturn aspects the 11th (income).. This applies to the second part of the quote i. Its aspect on the sixth gives rise to enemies and desires to win in conflicts (10th aspect-Upachaya aspect is top priority with Saturn the Labourer). So to understand Libra we see they are influenced by scorpio/virgo influence in general-of course to be modified by house placement and planets.This is probably basic/ stuff that I missed somewhere but please answer My question is.. Since Saturn can give very strong desires due to depriving the person from the items it aspects. third and sixth houses. Maharshi Jaimini has also expressed a similar opinion when he assigns the seventh from Lagna and the Moon for Hridaya (Not physical heart.-is its very nature influenced by the signs on either side of it namely cancer/taurus.can the SIGN in question be influenced by the SIGNS on either side of it ? For example.Jupiter and Saturn respectively. To what extent they desire these things in the seventh house is seen from the "Dristi Pada". So. but emotional desires).However this is a little different.SANJAY RATH I have mentioned this thing about desires earlier. but this is not the priority of Saturn. Thus. in the ninth Sani is bad both by placement and graha dristi as well. is on one SIDE. and taurus help make up/influence the Gemini lagnas nature? Mithuna is supposed to have weakness for romance. But in the beginning of the Graha Dristi chapter Parasara says that it is a well-known fact that all planets have full 7th aspect.my lagna is Gemini.Is this not only because Venus rules house of romance 5th.

ANSWER BY PT. CAN ASPECT THE SIGNS NEXT TO IT. EXCEPT THE GREAT CAUSE OF REBIRTH I.ANANTARUPA You wrote: ". fourth and 11th do influence its significations.E. This causes rebirth again and again as RAHU HAS A SPECIAL ASPECT ON THE 12TH HOUSE RECKONED IN THE REVERSE AS RAHU IS RETROGRADE. then the PARAMJYOTI awakens and you shall have the power to see the past present and future or to see Bhagavan wherever He wishes to reveal Himself..E. then you cannot back out also. CAN ASPECT THE SIGNS NEXT TO IT. Thus the natural benefic nature is important but the natural relationship is even more important.The influence on the 2nd/12th is by way of ARGALA and this is planetary/sign intervention. For instance: If Jupiter is in house two. Saturn in the second gives impure or petrified food and this argala need not be good for health indicated by . it is difficult to go ahead by ignoring its intervention.. Is this due to Argala? Is the following understanding of argala correct? That: Benefic planets in the second. Durdhura yoga (Moon with planets in both houses adjacent to herself). thus counted directly this is the 2nd house. The second is to be understood as the Dhana Argala.. If the planet is inimical to the natural significator then the argala need not be beneficial. The 12th house has to do with Moksha and the ONLY real obstruction to all of us getting Moksha is Rahu.. almost touching it (like the signs next to each other touch each other). . fourth or eleventh from a house boost its significations and promises.. tenth or third from the house. ? REPLY QUESTION BY MR. The influence on the 2nd/12th is by way of ARGALA and this is planetary/sign intervention.SANJAY RATH Yes the planets ans signs in the second. RAHU.SANJAY RATH "NO BODY. In this manner try to visualise the influence of the argala in real life." Papakartari yoga. If a Car is standing right in front of your Car. For example the second from the Lagna is the Dhanargala on Lagna and gives excellent food that influences health. RAHU". If there is another Car Behind. WHETHER PLANET OR SIGN. Rahu represents the Various desires and other evils which have eclipsed our Dharma (Sun) from the very time our Atma had an independant existance from the Paramatma.. When you try to visualise. EXCEPT THE GREAT CAUSE OF REBIRTH I. it boosts the prospects of the first house by way of argala but if Rahu is in house twelve at the same time then Jupiter can only benefit house 1 if it is stronger than Rahu. WHETHER PLANET OR SIGN.NO BODY.. Sunapha and Anapha (planets in the second or twelfth of Moon) as well as Veshi and Voshi yogas (planets in twelfth or second from Sun) are examples of planets influencing the sign next to it... Is this correct? => ANSWER BY PT.. Such supportive influence can be obstructed by malefic planets in the twelfth.

the planet WHICH causes argala interferes in the matters of the respective houses. my (mis-?)understanding of argal would be that one's longevity interferes into the affairs of the above mentioned houses .like "One's longevity and turmoil in life will influence one's happiness.YASOMATINANDANA DAS I am somewhat confused about how Argala is used in some places in COVA. Similarly. Karma and gains have a direct bearing on longevity. fiths. Then there is no Argala on Lagna and the benefic is not going to contribute to the good health of the native. Can you please clarify my confusion. 5th) extend tehir life as per their desire. Thus it is vital to bear in mind that the birth chart alone is not the final say in determining longevity.the lagna. children and supporters. It seems. Generally. And benefics in the 3rd would have counterargala because of lack of physical action. The . To me it would be to interpret it vice versa . spouse. Similarly many people tend to lose longevity due to their karma (10th)" Again. To understand the relationship between mutual 3 & 11. This can give wealth and thus augment the artificial image of the person in the world. How then can I understand the statements like: "The ascendant (being the eleventh from the third) has argala and shows that such short joneys have a direct bearing on the health and status of the native". The texts say that the saints and spiritualists (mantra. the conditions of one's wife. If another malefic is in the 12th to ruin the sleep then the Papakartari and Asubha Yoga on lagna can damage health. mantra. => ANSWER BY PT. children and friends as well as the karma he manages to do". another passage: "The eight house has argala on the fourth.something like "the condition of one's health and status will influence the ability (and neccesety) of short joneys" (1st causes argala on the 3rd). we should first consider the a benefic in 3.SANJAY RATH The concept of Argala can get confusing. Similarly the second house from the arudha Lagna should be strong with planets naturally friendly to the Moon or the 2nd Lord itself being there. tenth and eleventh houses showing ones general state of happiness and living coditions. I still have a wrong understanding of the argala concept. And the above statement would be true in the sense that if there are malefic in the 3rd (argala on the 1st) then the native would be fond of such excercise like jogging and this would have a positive bearing on the health. Argala ? QUESTION BY MR.

If the short journey is being made in an ambulance. The 3 & 11 have a mutual relationship in Argala. OM TAT SAT . it can indicate a serious fall in health. The making of the journey from home to office is going to "show" to the people who "see" the transport means the status of the native. The question arising is interpreting this influence of the third house on lagna (or AL). but at what cost is the question. then the Lagna has to lose the same. the 11th house does influence the matters of the house concerned. In interpreting Argala. The clerk may use a public transport like bus to make the journey. Since the 11th is a house of gains.point raised is with reference to the third house as the focus. the 11th from the third i. Here the reference is to the third from Arudha Lagna (/Varga) as status is a part of Maya. Vice-versa. Junior officers will use smaller cars and the Managing director uses a Mercedes Benz.e. the third house rules short journeys and this has the Lagna being in the 11th house from the third. Take an example of a short journey that one makes from the house to office. Thus short journeys require expenditure of energy that may or may not be very good for the lagna. Now. Thus if the third house is gaining something. That is the point. A person who has to travel a lot in connection with the work may have failing health (if the journey becomes very tiresome). Lagna is the house of gains for the third house. the journey itself will have an impact on the person. Thus the status is reflected through the means of transport used. say energy from the Lagna.
