Snapshot Method of Interpreting a Horoscope I
INTRODUCTION One of the biggest hurdle to any beginner in Jyotish that when a horosope is present infront, one tend to get lost in the multitude of factors involved in analysing a horosope. This cause frustration and devomotive one to study more and go deeper into the discipline. This article tries to address the issue and provides a guideline on how to go about analysing a horosope. This article is by no means comprehensive as there is no substitute to hardwork and studying the Jyotisha-shastras in original. However, I believe that this can give a good kick-start to any beginner in Jyotish. 1. The Nature of the person can be known by the planets placed in the Lagna and its Trine and those who are aspecting it. These planets shall confer their naisargika (natural)nature to the native. Purest quality of planets are exhibited when they are exalted and when placed alone/ isolated, whenever they are conjoined with other planets they undergo modification. Different planets signify different aspects of personality. 2. The placements and conjunctions of planets show their impact on the nature of the person. However functional nature of planets based on lordships can indicate the situations and events that the native will be placed with. 3. Kendras are houses of Happiness. Natural malefics in these house shows that the native's life shall be full of struggles and it consitute something known as Sarpa yoga, when all the kendras are occupied by Malefics. If not all the kendras are occupied, then also the yoga shall manifest partially. However under such circumstances, if benefics placed in the lagna or the 7th or aspect the lagna, then the yoga is brocken and such significations shown by the benefic shall bring bredth of fresh air in the life of the native. 4. If the malefic planets placed in the Kendras are placed in the Own house or exalation, this constitute the Mahapurusha yogas and the person shall have saintly nature based on the tattva of the planet consituting the mahapurusha yogas. 5. If the malefic planets in the Kendras are placed in debilitation, the person enjoys prosperity after periods of struggle. 6. Best place for malefics to be placed are the upachayas [3,6,10,11] among them 3,6,11 are the best positions. But if malefics are placed in 6th house 4,8 and 12 (Sukha/happiness trikona)unhappiness and misery. Specifically malefics placed in 4th gives unhappiness at home or home country, in the 8th it will curtail longevity and in the 12th house it will have asubha yoga (inauspicious combination) wrt lagna and give unwanted expenses in concurrence with the nature of the malefic. 7. Best place for benefics are kendras and trines. Benefics placed in the 6th, 8th and 12th house, do good to the significations of those houses but with the cost of destroying their natural and functional significations.
STRENGTHS 1. Any house which is placed with benefics in kendra and trikona will prosper. The house suffers if it is placed with malefics in kendra or trikona, provided they are not the lord or karaka of the house concerned. 2. If lord of a house or karaka aspects (graha drishti or rashi drishti) the significations of the house will prosper. 3. If natural benefic aspect a house, it then protects the house. 4. Protectors of a house are the Karaka and the lord. They shall always try to protect the house and its significations. If they are strong, the protection is strong, however, it they are afflicted (placed with enemies/ malefics) or weak (placed in debilitation/ marana sthana), they might fail to protect the house/ natural significations. 5. A house suffers if they are afflicted (placed with enemies/ malefics). If the lord is afflicted, the karaka comes to the rescue and if the karaka is afflicted the lord comes to rescue. If both are afflicted, none can rescue the sigifications. If the lord of any house is placed witht he karaka for the house, the house prospers.
WEAKNESS 1. Any planet aspected by a malefic, who is not a friend is said to be afflicted. [Sun and Mars do not afflict Jupiter]. Please note the natural friendship and enemity among the planets to understand this. 2. Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) afflict every other planet. Nodes cause corruption of natural significations, being a shadowy planet. Rahu-Jupiter: Guru Chandala Yoga- The native is skeptical to any form of knowledge and the guru. Also show manusya hatya (death/killing of human) Rahu-Mars: Vijaya Yoga- Win using any means available Rahu-Mercury: Causes perverted logic Rahu-Sun: Aditya Chandala yoga- Lack of conscience/ dharma Rahu-Moon: Shakthi yoga- Mentally unsettled One must see where the yoga is happening and its association with the lagna/ atmakaraka for the native's involvement in the bad yogas. 3. Malefic Enemies in conjunction or 1/7th from each other cause trouble in the house whether they are placed. For example following yogas are dangerous and shall harm the house where they are placed. Sun-Saturn Mars-Saturn Rahu-Sun Rahu-Mars etc. 4. Planets defeated in planetary war (two planets placed very near are said to be in war, a planet that loses longitude has lost the war) fails to protect, its signification and also the significations of house owned by it suffers. 5. Planet in debiliation is weak to ptotect its house and significations. A planet in Maran Karak Sthana (MKS) is weak and it fails to protect its house (s). 6. A planet who is combust is also weak. However, it is seen that the natural significations of a combust planet is enhanced due to brilliance and energy of Sun, however, the house owned by the planet suffers. 7. Debiliated planets weaken the house they are placed in and also the planets they are placed with. This is because, debilitated planet is like a resourceless guy, trying to gain from its environment. 8. Benefics and karakas placed in 2 or 12 the promote the house. Benefics either in the 2nd or 12th cause Subha yoga, whereas in both the house cause subhakartari yoga.
9. Fifth house is house of inner harmony (inner peace) 'chitta' in sat-chit-ananda. If placed with saturn or rahu person becomes restless and cannot be at peace as they are quite opposed to the karaka Jupiter. Badhakesh placed in fifth with affliction, person becomes insane. 10. If there is conflict between planet placed in fifth and lagna the native suffers due to restlessness. 11. Functional nature of any lord placed in 6,8, or 12 from lagna suffers because enemies (6th) or weakness of past life (8th nija dosha) or past debts (12th) or if those dusthana lords are placed in those houses. Badhakesh placed in any house, that house may suffer due to black magic. 12. If a house lord is placed in a Dusthana from the house itself then the external significations of the house suffers, such as the relatives ruled by the house etc. However, if it placed in a dusthana from the lagna, then the native suffers wrt to the house under consideration and the internal significations, such as dhana (2nd), parakrama (3rd), happiness (4th), power/ authority (5th) etc., shall suffer. Thus for example, if the 4th lord is in eighth and the karaka Moon is weak, then the person would be concerned about something related to his mother, however the mother might not suffer as the lord is placed in the 5th from 8th. 13. A house suffers if its lord is in rasi sandhi or Gandanta. Whenever a planet is placed in the Rasi Sandhi, it becomes very weak to protect its houses. The duration of rasi sandhi would be 1 nakshatra pada (3d 20m) each side of rasi junction. Among the Sandhi, the three gandanthas (sandhi between Pisces-Aries; CancerLeo; Scorpio-Sagittarius) are the most harmful. 14. The controller of sukha trikona is the 4th house [kendra houses control the trikona]. If 4th house is afflicted the person faces misery. If 4th house is badly afflicted, person can have suicidal tendencies. This is aggravated if the 5th house from Moon is also afflicted (with malefics). CAREFULLY JUDGE THE STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES OF EACH HOUSE AND THEIR KARAKA, THE AFFLICTIONS AND THE SALVAGING FACTORS & THEN PRONOUNCE THE RESULTS, WHICH WOULD NOT GO WRONG. ALONG WITH THIS GENERIC ANALYSIS, ONE NEED TO SEE THE NATURAL YOGAS (GURU-MANGALA, SASI-CHANDRA etc.) AND THE FUNCTIONAL YOGAS (DHARMAKARMADHIPATI YOGA, DURYOGAS) ETC. TO DO A COMPLETE ANALYSIS OF THE CHART.
Similarly.6) 4. The Trishadaya (3/6/11) lords shall give inauspicious/ malefic results. which shall define the goal the person shall be striving for.

3rd. however in the subsequent stanzas we shall see the conditions which can break such yoga formed by association of a kendra and trikona lord. If they are conjoined with Yogakaras or are aspected by them.12) The conditions given by Maharishi Parashar in verses 11 & 12 of BPHS for yogakarakas are: i. In verse 15. Exchange between the Kendra and Trikona Lords. we must see the association of the trisadaya lords as mentioned in the 15th verse. Kendra and Trikona lords having mutual aspect (graha drsti). The Kendras. whereby he says that if a planet owns both kendra and trikona. they shall confer rajayoga. if there happens to be a full Drishti between a Lord of a Kendra and a Lord of a Trikona. YOGAKARAKAS 1. then the mere association of the kendra or trikona lord shall not give yoga. 6th. if a Lord of a Kendra is conjoined with a Lord of a Trikona in a Kendra. if a Lord of a Trikona is in a Kendra.16-34. it shall cause duryoga (inauspicious combination). Saturn and Mars are natural malefics. (BPHS 34. or vice versa. The Trisadayas are stronger than the Trikonas. In beneficence. (Pt.

The eighth house is always evil and is never stronger than the ascendant. or in a Trikona. Kendra lord cojoins a Trikona lord either in a Kendra or in Trikona. Thus on the basis of lordship the planets can be placed in the following ascending order of natural strength (influence) in the chart: . Saturn and Mars are stronger in the ascending order. 12th . in the descending order 9th and 5th (the ascendant is predominantly a Kendra and then a Trikona). 4th.

Sanjay Rath) NATURAL BENEFICS AND MALEFICS Jupiter and Venus are natural benefics. It is evident that the tenth lord is the most influential planet in the chart as the tenth house is the most potent house for any planet to be placed. Maharishi says that if the lord of the kendra or trikona simultaneously own the trishadayas (the evil houses 3/6/11). due to the conjunction. Jupiter and Venus are stronger in the ascending order.10). This fact should be borne in mind while analyzing Rajayoga and Duryoga (Kendra/ Trikona Lord in dusthana) i. If they are in Kendra conjoining or aspected by kendra/ trikona lords it will become Yog Karak. ii. Kendra lord placed in a Trikona or Tikona Lord placed in a Kendra. One born in such a Yoga will become a king and be famous. 2. the effect shall be according to that order i. while Moon is mediocre in beneficence and Mercury is neutral (its nature depends on association). 1st.2nd .

However. Maharishi gives the condition for a planet becoming suo-moto yogakaraka.e. Mercury. we must remember that if a kendra lord is placed in a dusthana. This is an important condition and one must keep in mind while interpreting the yogakarakas in a horoscope.

a malefic planet owning a quadrant sheds its malfeasance and will give very good results if placed in an evil house. Subha yoga or good results are produced by the placement of the lord of a quadrant in a trine. Similarly. Similarly. Yogakaraka means capability for producing auspicious results. 7th & 10th contribute to the happiness. If the malefic is also the lord of a trine in addition to its ownership of a quadrant. The lord of the ascendant is the natural yogakaraka in any chart as it the first house is a quadrant and a trine. 10th. mutual aspect or exchange of signs. Artha. Gyana yoga (that leads to moksha) is caused by the association of the lord of the fourth house with the lord of a trine. position and a good career. For example if Saturn is the lord of the 10th house for Taurus ascendant. This yoga gives great learning and knowledge. However. the duryoga is modified if it associates with the lord of a trine. this requires experimentation as this is not specifically mentioned by the Maharishi. if the tenth lord associates with the ninth lord Dharmakarma-adhipati yoga results. For this purpose. they associate in a quadrant. However. then it becomes a yogakäraka producing auspicious results. SANJAY RATH'S COMMENT ON THE SUBJECT Kendradhipati dosa or the negative effect of the ownership of quadrants by natural benefic planets implies reduction in their beneficence. the loss of malfeasance may not occur fully. PT. Viparita Räjayoga occurs. Duryoga or inauspicious results are produced by the placement of the lord of a quadrant in a dusthäna (evil house). This loss of beneficence of a benefic lord of quadrant is called Kendradhipati dosa. its placement in the 12th house in debility will give excellent results like power. If instead. we need to consider Rahu as the lord of Aquarius and Ketu as the lord of Scorpio. This is the highest karma yoga. Kama and Moksha (Readers may refer to the Bhagavat Gita for a detailed explanation of these goals). Another form of this yoga is theassociation of the lord of the tenth house with the lord of the fifth house. a malefic planet owning a quadrant will not remain a malefic and that does not imply that the malefic becomes a benefic. the planet is placed in a quadrant or trine.6 We might also consider the lordship of Rahu ketu in finding out their functional nature. . This flaw is annulled if the planet is also well placed in a quadrant or trine. The benefic owner of a quadrant is still a benefic and does not become a malefic. The 1st. Rajabhanga yoga is caused by the association of the lord of a quadrant with the lord of a dusthana in an evil house. A weaker yoga is caused by one planet aspecting the house of the other and vice-versa or by an exchange of constellation called sukshma yoga. 7th & 4th houses/ lords represent the four ayana (goals of life) called Dharma. If instead. The lords of trines (5th & 9th houses) are important for wealth and sustenance while the lords of the 4th. The association of the lord of a quadrant with the lord of a trine results in Rajayoga producing auspicious results. Yoga has been loosely interpreted as Union/association and in astrology this implies conjunction. For example.
namely the eleventh. . Even though the lordship of 10th house diminishes the maleficence of Saturn. or a Kona own simultaneously an evil Bhava. . Here the other lordship of the Eighth lord is a Trikona and thus it gives auspicious results. One would have expected a powerful dharmakarmadhipati yoga making high status to the native as mentioned in the slokas 11 and 12. Functional Nature of Planets II: Aries & Taurus Lagna INTRODUCTION In the previous article I mentioned the effect of different lordship in a horoscope. the 3rd and 6th and hence the strongest evil planet for this Lagna. If the Lords of a Kendra.Mercury: Mercury owns two Trisadaya houses.Venus: Venus is the 2nd and the Kendra lord. although it reduces its maleficence to some extent. even if it owns a Kendra.Jupiter: Jupiter lords the 9th and the 12th sign. Now the 12th lord is by nature a neutral and for them all depends on the lordship of other houses. he does not cause a Raja Yoga by mere relations mentioned in the sloka 11 (on association of Kendra and Kona lords).7 3. In this article I shall venture into the functional nature of different planets for each Lagna based on the principles mentioned in the previous article Functional Nature of Planet I. . Being the 9th lord. Thus. thus under the influence of benefics. its association with the Kona lord. it is very auspicious. Maharishi says in sloka 15 that. Now Venus is suffering from the Kendradhipatya dosha and hence cannot be auspicious for the Lagna unless it owns a Kona too or associates with a Kona lord. he will surely give inauspicious results.The mere conjunction of Saturn with Jupiter will not produce auspicious effects. however this doesn’t happen here by the conjunction of the 9th lord Jupiter and 10th lord Saturn. however Maharishi says in the sloka 14 that a malefic. Jupiter doesn’t manifest the Rajayoga. . he will be helpful to auspicious Planets: For Aries. In sloka 6. ARIES LAGNA Even though Mars is the Lord of Eighth.Sun: Sun lords the trine and such trinal lordship is auspicious. it is least evil or inauspicious. Mercury and Venus are malefics. Maharishi says that if the Eighth lord owns any Trisadayas (3/6/11) it becomes evil however if its own a Trikona it gives auspicious results. Moreover its lordship of neutral 2nd house is not of much avail as it will give the results of the ownership of other house. . it will give auspicious results whereas under the influence of a malefic the results are quite inauspicious. . making the Sun an auspicious planet for the native of Aries Lagna.Saturn: Saturn is the lord of the 10th and 11th house. Thus the evil lordship of a Trisadaya shall dominate over the Kendra lordship and make Saturn an evil planet for this Lagna. the 7th. . Mars is the Lagna lord and the eighth lord (randhresha). However as compared to other planet. Being the 12th lord. Now why is it so? When we examine carefully. Here Saturn owns an evil bhava. Auspicious are Jupiter and Sun. even if it is a maraka being the lord of two maraka houses. Saturn.If Jupiter is at the disposal of a malefic. Mere ownership of a Kendra doesn’t make a malefic an auspicious planet. it can be influenced by other planets. owning a Kendra becomes auspicious only when it simultaneously Lords over a Kona. . Thus Jupiter is an auspicious planet for the Lagna.
namely 3rd and shall give inauspicious results for this Lagna. .8 .Venus is a direct (independent) killer.When Sun is in Lagna and Moon in Cancer. In the sloka 9 of the Marakadhyaya.Venus is a maraka . The nature of the 8th lord is dependent on the nature of the lordship over the other house by the planet. . However. he becomes a Yogakaraka.Mars will prove a benefic during his dasa if he’s in Leo. . if in conjunction with Sun and Venus in Scorpio. Venus also lords the 6th a.A Sun-Moon combination confers Rajayoga .A Mars-Venus combination can be both favorable and fatal. Venus is the lords of both the maraka sthanas and hence thus can kill independently and need not be associated with any of the marakesh (killer) to bring death to the native. Saturn will cause Raja Yoga.This is the only Lagna where it’s great if the 2nd lord is in the 12th.A Jupiter-Saturn association doesn’t confer a Rajayoga . . .Jupiter: Jupiter lords the 8th and the 11th house. there isn’t any yoga. this isn’t the case with any other Lagna.Mars. will confer some fame . even if it own a Kendra/ Kona vide sloka 15.Venus: Venus is the Lagna lord and generally we wouldn’t think of the Lagna becoming a malefic.Saturn etc.There’s a special yoga produced when Mars.

Sun and Jupiter are in Sagittarius. .A Sun-Jupiter-Venus combination in Capricorn helps the native enjoy dips in holy rivers like the Ganga TAURUS LAGNA Jupiter. he will be the first to kill in preference to other Grahas. Thus if Saturn joins Venus. with Venus and Saturn in Libra . Maharishi mentions the different grahas that can act as the marakesh.Saturn: Saturn is a distinct Yogakaraka for the natives of this Lagna as it lord the 9th and 10th houses.If Mars conjoins Mercury.An Aries native will have fear of diseases (especially smallpox). if associated with an adverse Graha (Venus).If Mars conjoins Jupiter in Cancer. implied. Maharishi says that if Saturn is ill-disposed and related to a Maraka Graha.Moon: Moon is the lord of another evil bhava (Trisadaya). RAMANUJACHARYA (BHAVARTHA RATNAKARA) . will also inflict death. death by brain disease occurs in his dasa and bhuktis . Now 11th lordship is no doubt evil as it’s a Trisadaya. .Sun: Sun is the lord of 4th bhava and loses its maleficence being a Kendra lord and also doesn’t own an . . Here. .A Sun-Mercury-Venus combination in Aquarius is a fortunate combination.Venus confers a Rajayoga if he’s in Lagna with the Sun and unaspected by Jupiter. Saturn and Sun are auspicious. the native enjoys a Rajayoga . Venus and Moon are malefics. Thus Jupiter becomes an inauspicious planet for the Taurus Lagna. its periods (Dasa/ Antar) can bring about death.A Mercury-Mars combination in Virgo gives the native skin diseases. . eruptions and wounds .Jupiter becomes a maraka if he occupies Capricorn . the combination occurs in Gemini. the same can’t be said for Venus when she’s aspected by Jupiter .The native will possess self-earned wealth if Mars and Venus are in Libra. with all three conferring riches during their dasas and bhuktis .Sun will become a Yogakaraka when aspected by Jupiter.

it is devoid of any strength. More follows below: 2. there is more use of the strengths and we get the clue of those uses from their names. neutral and enemical signs are based on the compound relationship and hence the term. Find the difference between a planet's longitude and the deepest debilitation point. this is more logical to think that. Moolatrikona Sign. One can understand their use more and more by understanding their name and their basis of calculation. Although these strengths are combinedly used for finding the effect of planets on the lives of the natives. Drik Bal (Aspectual strength) These strengths are computed for the seven Grahas from Sun to Saturn. When a planet is placed in its highest exaltation point.15 Virupas . it has middling strength proportionately dependent on the distance these planets are placed from the highest exaltation or deepest debilitation point. the difference happens to be 180 deg and hence the uccha bala for such planet becomes 60 virupa (180/3). however. Saptamsa. The strength of the planets in these seven divisional charts based on their placements in moolatrikona. might not be so for influencing all affairs in our lives. The friend's. Dwadashamsa and Trimsamsa constitute the Sapta varga. Navamsa. when a planet is placed in the deepest debilitation. Shad Bal consists of the following strengths 1. A planet which might give good status might not be good to show the direction of your life. the difference becomes zero and hence also the bala is zero. Divide the difference by 3 and the result so obtained is the uccha bala in Virupas. Although maharishi gave the strength in terms of the avasthas they are place in. Dig Bal (Directional strength) 3.20 Virupas Friendly Sign (Shant) . friendly sign etc. own sign. Kaal Bal (Temporalstrength). Sthan Bal (Positional strength) 2. STHANA BALA (Maximum: 480 virupa = 8 rupas) Sthana means place and hence the sthana bala is calculated based on the placement of the planets in different signs on various parameters. The method of their calculation is as follows: In the following rasis. So we must construe. 2. then such specific names were unnecessary. Hora. When placed at other places. However. When a planet is in highest exaltation point. For illustration.1 Uccha Bal (Maximum: 60 virupa = 1 rupa) Uccha means exaltation. Chesht Bal (Motional strength) 5.10 4. These strengths need not be used only predicting the results of the dasa. If they were to be used combinedly. The nodes are not considered. a planet when strong. constitute the sapta varaj bala. it is of full strength and when it is in its deepest debilitation point. Moreover.25 rupas) Rasi.

Jupiter and Venus is zero. Also note the formula Nata Bala+ Unnata Bala = 60 virupas The fluctuation of the Natonnata bala for the planets can be seen as follows: Diurnal Planet Nocturnal Planet Sunrise 30 30 Noon 60 00 Sunset 30 30 Midnite 00 60 3. Moon and Venus are female planets and get strength of 15 virupas each while placed in the even signs in the rasi or navamsa.) 2.

One rupa equals 60 virupa. The duration from Conjunction to Opposition is the time when the Phase of Moon increase and is termed as Waxing Moon. the natonnata bala for all the planets (excluding Mercury. while one in Panaphara (Succedent: 2-5-8-11) Bhava gets half and the one in Apoklima(Preceedent: 12-3-6-9) Bhava gets a quarter or a rupa. thus in virupas. get a quarter Rupa (15 virupa) according to placements in the first. Mars and Saturn is zero.2 Paksha Bal Paksha can be loosely translated as a fortnite. which in Jyotish parlance known as the Sukla . the unnata bala of the Sun. At other time the bala is proportionate. From this we can infer that the male planets are stronger in the beginning of a sign. respectively. whereas Sun.. Jupiter and Venus are stronger during the day. Unnata is the difference between midnight and the apparent birth time. when the day is at peak and the Sun is placed exactly on the meridian. Paksha is the duration between conjunction and opposition of the Luminaries. whose bala is always 60). other planets placed in the odd signs in both rasi and navamsa.

Maas Lord. The angle which they make with respect to the plane of celestial equator measured from center of earth is called the declination or Kranti. Now a days with the advent of computers. This strength has gained its name from the fact that the day and night are divided into three parts each. Find the angular distance between Sun and Moon.4 Varsha (Abda) . Venus. The paksha bala of the Moon is 2 rupas (120 virupas) at the end time of Full Moon and New Moon. is known as the celestial equator. whereas during the equinoxes.

at this point of time while I am writing this article. We can only eat when we are comfortable. or to take rest. If the strength was due to Hora Bala. Mercury is strong everywhere. As a result is strong in all three ages. Baladi avasthaas deal with the physical state of body systems. full of hope and high spirited. like sitting in a Jyotish class or in a conference.

Chesta bala shows what are my desires or what am I trying to do at this point of time. He rules the natural upachayas of nature (3rd and 6th houses). Jupiter. is only the tip of the iceberg. The Sun and Mars give best results as children. in the siddhamsa. Since baladi avasthas deal with the physical body (or bodily systems). Mars. Moon and Saturn are strong in each of the 6 shastamsas. We only eat when we are . The three drekannas of a rasi are divided into child. Mercury. He is always enthusiastic. What I have written. Sun is having highest kala bala and highest chesta bala. which was directed by my environment and circumstances. A car can be driven as long as there is gas. shows that I should be doing Sun's activity at this point of time. Here. Sayanadi avasthas deal with the states (awareness) of the mind. As Sun also shows that chesta as mentioned above. The baladi avasthas above depend on the drekkana division. moola Trikona (work) or in exaltation (picnic/party). writing this mail. These deal with the states of the body. Planetary Avasthas There are three fundamental types of avasthas: baladi. 5. sayanadi and deeptadi. there are 6 states from childhood to death. The kala bala is also highest that of Sun. I see that more strength (Kaala bala) is coming from the Ayana Bala. by analysing which planets are stronger at which point of time. Sun being the 9th lord shows teaching (with AK Mars shows that the desire is very strong). SAYANADI AVASTHAS The Sayanadi avasthas deal with the state of the mind. being the 6th lord in the 12th. Once again. and old age respectively. unexplored. showing that. Deeptadi avasthas deal with the light of the soul. A strong lagnesh shows someone full of energy. then I would have done something. One good use I found with these balas is find the directional influences. CONCLUSION This is still a nacent area and require more researches to find out the exact use of each of the elements of the shadbala. BALADI AVASTHAS The baladi avasthas are determined from the drekkana division of a sign. When I go further.15 10. Venus and Jupiter in middle age. just hinting. they are reckoned in the opposite order for even signs—with the first drekkana showing old age. Sun. In my rasi chart. this is also helping me achieving the direction (Ayana) of my life. rather than using the total values of the shadbala for analysing the dasas. we can examine the state of the mind. The energy of the body comes from the food one eats. it shows the attitude of service (6th) without any motivation to gain (12th). each point of time is influenced by one or other planets with varying extents and we can judge these subtle influences.

In the dasamsa it is placed in the 8th house being the 6th lord and I am here sitting. For illustration. which constantly moves between rest and activity. An analogy here will help matters. where as in the siddhamsa it is placed in the 12th house being the 6th lord. and this happens in one of three places: swakshetra (home). without going to my office.

exaltation). . We eat only when we are both comfortable and stationary. Jupiter remains in a sign for about a year. It is stationary in Sagittarius with Sagittarius lagna rising once in 144 years. and comfortable (own sign. When it occurs in Cancer. Whenever the charging of Saturn. As a result. The energy from which he succeeds in all activities comes from his exaltation. and whose very nature is contemplative will be very different from the behaviour of the fiery kshatriya Mars who is forced to remain still. By chanting the Gayatri mantra. and transits Sagittarius once in 12 years. The energy from which he executes his work comes from his Moola Trikona sign. Similarly. it is very rare for a soul to be born with this particular combination. or Mars takes place. the idol of Jagannath Prabhu at Puri is moved to a new sharira/idol. In Sagittarius. The behaviour of the sattvic brahmana Jupiter who is perfectly still.16 both at rest and comfortable. and the recharging of dharma takes place. the Sun (source of knowledge) is always in trines to it. This is the reason that trines are the definition of perfect harmony. Only when the planets are in perfect harmony with the world around them can they recharge. while the mind of the latter will be highly agitated. When this occurs in Pisces. all planets in trines to Sun are automatically energized. spiritual charging takes place. The intrinsic nature/energies of a planet come from swakshetra sign. the planets recharge only when they are stationary. Once every 12 years. Jupiter. recharging of Sukha takes place. MT. The mind of the first will be calm and at peace. when Jupiter transits Sagittarius. The sayanadi avasthas of the planet should be examined in relation to the natural lordships of caste. recharging of dharma takes place. and this combination only takes place with the Sun in trines.
Amatyakaraka The graha obtaining the second highest longitude is called Amatyakaraka. the Chara Karaka which is predominant in the Sattva guna and the the Sthira Karaka which is predominant in the Tamas guna. Based on the inhenrent gunas. Its role is that of a Minister who guides the king. Being the significator of the soul. The influence of mother on the life of the native need to be studied from this Charakaraka. the palanadevata (the deity who sustains oneself in this world) is seen from the 6th from the Amatyakaraka in the Navamsa. In the Navamsa chart. They show the influence of various atmas / souls in our life and thus means our sustainence in this material world in the form of a social life (having inter relationships with various souls in this world) and spiritual growth. The sthirakarakas are governed by by Shiva and there are 7 such karakas. being the one who has carried the soul of the native and transmitted to the womb of mother.17 6. THE CHARAKARAKAS (8 planets) Atmakaraka The graha that obtains the highest longitude in the chart is the Atmakaraka. They represent the death of various animate things surrounding us (Rahu and Ketu. While the rasis represent different parts of the Lord and the grahas represent the deities who signify a particular aspect and event in the life of a creature. The Karakas I INTRODUCTION All inanimate as well as the animate being the world are signified by the planets and hence the work karaka is associated with them. while the grahas are in motion which represent people who come and influence us. while in the rasi chart. The charakaraka is governed by vishnu and are 8 such karakas. It is the king of the chart. Karaka means the doer of certain activities.the significator of brothers and co-born who actually are expected to stand by the individual in times of dire need.the significator of mother. The utility of these karakas can be understood from the standpoint of their gunas. We know that when we talk of a horoscope we are talking of Narayana (Maha Vishnu) who is the creator and preserver of the brahmanda. in our life. Being the protector of the soul. This means that the karakas represent the influence of various things animate or inanimate. Matrikaraka is one (and the first in ascending order to the Atmakaraka) as mother is the person who has brings the atma into existence in the world. The remaining category is the Naisargik karaka governed by Brahma and there are 9 such karakas. It signifies the mind. Putrakaraka . The guru and their influence on our life and its purpose can be seen from the Bhratrikarka in the Rasi and the Navamsa chart. It is she who has the first right over the child and guides the child at all stages to do the right thing to attain glory and God. The rasis are fixed and represent the environment. Hence he comes next in hierarchy to the mother. It is the Amatyakaraka who guides the destiny of the person towards attainment of the desires of the atma. The influence of father on the life of the native need to be studied from this Charakaraka. It is also known as the Gurukaraka. as next to the Amatya it is only the Guru (preceptor) who can guide the atma towards its desired goal and God. Bhratrikaraka The graha obtaining the third highest longitude is called the Bhratrikaraka . they show the promise. it would show how the promise is fulfilled. They represent the creation process and hence all perceptible and imperceptible creation of the world are governed by them. the 12th house of liberation is seen from the Atmakaraka in the Navamsa to find out the Ista devata of the native who would guide the soul towards liberation from the bondage of life and death. Pitrikaraka The graha obtaining the fifth highest longitude is called the Pitrikaraka . Father is the one who is the cause for the birth of the person.the significator of father. Among the four karakas of prime importance. Matrikaraka The graha obtaining the fourth highest longitude is called the Matrikaraka . how the guru would influence the life of the native. Rajas and Tamas the karakas are classified in three categories namly the Naisargik karaka which is predominant in Rajas Guna. who are the shadowy planets without body cannot die and hence is excluded from the scheme of the 7 sthira karakas). Sattva. It is the significator of the soul (atma).
Any deviation in life from the desired path or objective of the atma renders it disillusioned. It is Brihaspati as the sustainer of the jeevatma and Surya as the provider of jeeva (life) who predominate the person’s Dharma bhava. Gnyatikaraka The graha obtaining the 7th highest longitude is known as the Gnyatikaraka . it has certain abilities of its own towards that direction. Children bear the future of the person. Hence he gains the sixth place of importance in the relationship of the person. While the Karakamsa itself will help see the desire of the atma. the role of Brihaspati (who represents God) becomes very vital in the Navamsa division of the person. Darakaraka The graha obtaining the eighth highest longitude is called Darakaraka . The influence of kith and kins on the life of the native need to be studied from this Charakaraka. As the atmakaraka has an objective with which it is born. which is God. both these together are called the Swamsa (Swa meaning self and amsa meaning division).The influence of children on the life of the native need to be studied from this Charakaraka. Thus.the significator of wife. then it becomes the Swamsa. As it actually performs no role in the active life of the person except to watch (as a Judge) the direction of growth of the person. therefore. thus. The influence of spouse and companion on the life of the native need to be studied from this Charakaraka. The Navamsa sign occupied by the atmakaraka is called the Karakamsa. ideals and goals of the soul for which it has born on earth. The gati in that direction may be slow or obstructed due to various other factors. as Brihaspati is the naisargika karaka for the 9th house (Dharma) significations. they gain the seventh place of importance in the relationship of the person. The Trines from the Karakamsa. Hence. which. To attain this. while the ascendant or Lagna sign of the Navamsa is called the Lagnamsa and. becomes a very vital part of vedic astrology divination. Any graha located in the 1st.the significator of relatives.18 The graha obtaining the sixth highest longitude is known as the Putrakaraka and it is the significator of children. This is one of the very important and significant reasons why the 9th house in the Rasi chart is associated with Jupiter and Sun as the natural significators of the person’s Dharma bhava. The Atmakaraka has a very vital role to play in the horoscope of a person. If the Karakamsa and Lagnamsa become the same or have any connection between them. Regular prayer to the Ishta Devta (to be determined from the 12 house from the placement of Karakamsa) and the Lord of Bhratrikarak (also called the Gurukarak) helps attain the gati for the atma to move speedily in the desired direction. the spouse (Dara) is placed last at the 8th place. Thus. the spouse is no different from the person as whatever is to happen with the person is to be shared jointly by both. The influence of father on the life of the native need to be studied from this Charakaraka. become automatically good for the spiritualism of the person and also to provide gati for his atma (known as Atmagati). in which case. It simply leaves the physical body and an Atma whose primary desire is not fulfilled has actually lived a wasted life. The spouse is the 'Ardhangini' (equal partner) of the person. the Trines from the Karakamsa will show the actual desire of the atma. A son is the one who is to perform the last rites of the person. Our atma is a jeevatma. Sattwik guna alone is the sustainer of the atma and it leads it to the lord. should perform sattwik acts so as to cleanse the soul off its impurities and lead it to God. THE STHIRA KARAKS (7 planets) . become very vital signs to determine the native’s spiritualism. it finally deserts the body in the form of death at a time when it can no longer sustain the misdeeds of the person. The relatives of the person are the ones who are expected to be near the person in times of happiness and distress. As importance to the self is always last. 5th and 9th (Trines) bhavas from the Karakamsa. thus. What are the desires of the atma? What are its abilities? Whether it has the power to fulfil its objective or utilize its abilities? Whether the abilities and the powers of the atma would be utilized in the right direction or not? Whether the birth of the atma would attain its purpose or not? All these factors are to be seen from the Navamsa (the 9th division – D9 – chart of the person). the activity of the person whose physical form the atma has obtained. the objective and the abilities of the atmakaraka are attained. It actually shows the objectives. The ultimate objective of the atma is to mingle with the parmatmamsa. No graha in the horoscope can actually give benefic or malefic results beyond what the Atmakaraka could signify.

So one must take ample caution in judging the complexion of a person belonging to a certain a certain race and geographical area. Effect of Ascendant I: General Principles & Aries Lagna INTRODUCTION The ascendant is the sign which rises in the eastern horizon at the time of birth of a person. we need to consider all the three. which is as follows: raktashyaamo divaadhIsho gauragaatro nishaakarah naatyuchchaangaH kujo rakto duurvaashyaamo budhastathaa 16 gauragaatro gururgnyeyah shukrah shyaavastathaiva cha krishhNadeho raveH putro gneyate dvijasattama 17 The slokas mentioned above gives the complexion ruled by different planets. may it be the physical feature. PHYSICAL FEATURES Principle I: The Tattva of the sign shall influence the physical features. Hence the ascendant or the Lagna Bhava defines our personality. While Lagna signify all the resources with which we are sent in this world. 3). while studying the influence on the Lagna. Though various authors have given the effect of various ascendants on the native. short stature § Mercury.Reddish complexion. while enumerating various influences on our personality. For this reason. various classics recommend seeing both Lagna and Moon for the physical features. The physical characteristics of the planets are given in the BPHS (Ch.22 7.Fair complexion with golden yellow tinge § Venus.Excellent skin and brownish complexion (like dry grass) § Jupiter. one needs to consider the influence on two more lagans. Mind and Intelligence. The effect of various Tattva on the physical features is as follows: Fire: Robust physique and strong spine. Adding to its importance.Black complexion (very dark) The color or complexion is a very relative concept and varies based on race. However. Here we shall study the influence of various Ascendants on the physical features as well as personality of the person. which defines the purpose of our birth. Since we are the product of Soul.

the Lagna has more say over the facial features. In my opinion. this is not conclusive. Various texts like Nasta Jataka. has given the characteristics of people born with different Navamsa and need to be studied. Though the placements of planets in the horoscope shall modify the horoscope quite considerably. Principle I: The Nature of a person shall predominantly defined by the planet lording the ascendant and also the trines. It is cumbersome to remember the effect all the 108 Navamsas on the physical features and we must find a common thread among the Navamsas for understanding. there is however some pronounced similarities between persons born with a particular Lagna. one must find the effect of birth in different Hora and Drekkana. my effort is more towards finding some consistent principles which would eradicate the necessity of mugging up the same. For one. the Navamsa needs to checked for better understanding of the physical attributes of person. the readers might check different combinations and form their own conclusion. Although many authors both classical and modern. This can be studied from classics like Saravali and is not included in the scope of this article. . which make this easier. Moon has its say on the physique (body) and the Navamsa Lagna over the complexion of the native. NATURE OF ASCENDANT Though the persons in this world cannot be classified under 12 categories. Prithuyasha in his monumental classic Horasara has given few dictums. Saravali etc. Principle IV: For Further Finer analysis.24 o Has Tawny hair and eyes (Pingala murdhajeksane) o Is phlegmatic (kapha prakrti) o Is Intelligent (Dhiman) o Is expert in all Shastras (Sarva shastra visharada) § Venus o Is charming (sukhi kanta) o Splendorous physique (vapusshreshta) o Has beautiful eyes (sulochana) o Is poetic (kavya karta) o Is Exceedingly phlegmatic (Kapha adhikya) o Is also windy (Anilaatma) o Has curly hair (vakra murdhaja) § Saturn o Has an emaciated and long physique (Krsha Dirgha Tanu) o Has tawny eyes (Pingala Drsti) o Is of windy in temperament (anilaatmakah) o Has protruding teeth (sthula danta) o Is lazy (alasa) o Is Lame (Pangu) o Has coarse hair over the body (khara roma) § Nodes o Rahu has smoky appearance (Dhumra akara) o Has bluish body (Nila tanu) o He resides in forests (Vanastha) o He is horrifying (Bhayankarah) o He is of windy temperament (vata prakrti) o He is intelligent (Dhiman) o Ketu is akin to Rahu Principle III: Along with the Lagna and Moon sign. However. This effort to classify humans into categories based on the underline similarities is not unique to Jyotish and is a common phenomenon in Human Psychology. these underline similarities in the way people born under a particular ascendant would tend to surprise him. have given the results of ascendants. who is a keen observer. does not diminish the importance of studying the nature of people born under different ascendant as this forms the basis for the further analysis of a horoscope. this however.
they might calmer from outside. forms the basis for interpretation of the nature of persons born in an ascendant. For example. These are some of the significations of Scorpio/ Pisces or Cancer Lagna. This is an effort to present the effect of ascendant based on sound principles. They also abhor formal learning and believing in attaining wisdom. They represent the characteristics that are found the persons ruled by that signs. For example. never dare to mess up with these persons.e. showing the strong influence of Agni (fire) on the third house and the resultant courage. it might be scheming from inside and find the opportune moment to attack its prey with its sting and paralyze it completely.25 Principle II: The lordship of the Ascendant shall get modified based on the nature of the trinal signs and the relationship of different planets with these trines. Hence it is important to study the symbols seriously. since Mercury gets debilitated there. however truly it is not. since. Aquarians are the bravest of all others. Principle IV: The progression of the zodiac represents the progression of human life through different stages from childhood to old age. For illustration. people ruled by different zodiacal signs can be identified with such characteristics. . which alleviate the need to remembering them without understanding. Hence these characteristics would be predominant in Scorpio ascendants i. the native becomes platonic in love affairs as Venus attains exaltation there.. With practice. governing the said aspect and the relationship between the sign and the karaka governing the said house. Hora and Drekkana Lagna and planets placed there in. Principle V: The symbols assigned to different signs of the zodiac have their own meaning. this however. Arians are more headstrong and determined like a small child. the 3rd from Aquarius is lorded by Mars (karaka of war) and Sun gets exalted there and the sign itself is a fiery sign. Though one cannot literally apply this. For illustration. CHARACTERISTICS OF ASCENDANTS The following section describes the physical features as well as the nature of person born in a particular ascendant. however. to know the nature of the persons ruled by it. We shall see these in more details in subsequent section. Principle III: The attitude of the native towards various aspects of life can be judged from the lordship of the houses. which gain prominence in a particular age group. if Pisces falls in trine. One must not over-emphasize the effect as mentioned here under on the nature and physical characteristics of a person. whereas Pisceans are like old wise men. since it gets blended with the effect of other planets on the nature as well as the Navamsa. a Scorpion looks very calm and quite from outside. one can find out the ascendant of a person by interacting with him/ her. Like different age groups can be identified by peculiar characteristics peculiar to that group.

Study this and try out the argala and its obstruction in your seconds house. The concept of Argala INTRODUCTION Here is a small writeup on Argala to ignite your curiosity more and give some guideline on working with Argala. Our Attitudes and Personlity 2. We shall take a step by step approach to look at that: 1. Health 5. Now lets see how to analyse the argala of a planet on a given house. Stress and Tension 9. Stress and Tension 9. Sun. Intelligence 3. Income from the Job 7. Jupiter.61 24. Find the Karaka of the House under focus. How much tiring the job is? Now we can broadly classify these indications into the following houses: Lagna: 1. Health 5. Patience and Hardwork d. they have argala on the 10th house or work. Job-Satisfaction 6. the person shall have no job satisfaction and prone to take wrong decisions at job as Rahu is an enemy to the Karaka for Intelligence and wisdom. Friends Circle 8th house 8. They are: 1. Moon. For the present case. Whereas planets placed in the 12th shall oppose the argala of 2nd. Drive and Vitality 4. Income from the Job 7. Now the planets placed in these houses shall positively or negetively affect the work. To understand thislets take an example: Lets find out what are the factors which influence our worklife or karmakshetra indicated by the 10th house. It is written in jyotisha shastras that signs/ planets placed in the 2nd. THE CONCEPT We know that none of the activities in this world happen in isolation. Lets see what is the practical use of the concept of argala. 3rd will oppose 11th and 10th shall oppose the argala of 4th.Recognition at workplace b. Like if Rahu is placed in the Lagna. Job-Satisfaction 11th house 6. 4th and 11th from a house/ karaka have argala to it. The secondary argala is caused by signs/ planets in 5th and 8th from a house/ karaka and planets/ signs in 9th and 6th from it shall oppose it. How much tiring the job is? Now we see that the common link between these three houses are that. this happens to be 10th and the karakas are: a. Mercury . Saturn . Friends circle 8. Argala is a JyotishTool to analyse how the argala influence our activities.Nature of Workplace . Intelligence 3. There are many factors which each activity in our life. Drive and Vitality 4. Our Attitudes and Personlity 2.Persistence.Intelligence and communication c.
If Jupiter is placed in the 11th. whereas the argala in unfavourable or (b) Virodha is unfavourable whereas the argala is favourable to the karaka of the house under consideration. Here we shall see the strength of opposition on existing argala. This shows that. We know that the karaka for gain is Jupiter for the 11th house. Here we have to look at two things: a. The extent to which the Argala causing planet shall promote or diminish the result of the house under consideration is based on how much support it is getting from the Karaka of the house it is placed. Because of the Subhargala. Virodhargala: Virodha means opposition. the dispositor of the Argala causing planet can support or oppose it based on its relationship with the karakas of the house under consideration and also the argala causing planet. If the relationship is friendly then that will have positive influence on the significations ruled by the Karakas under consideration. 5. 8th) causing the argala on the concerned house (10th) Lets take an example. 3. . More planets or stronger planets in the virodhargala causing house show one of the following situation. if the virodhargala planet is favourable. the native shall get due recognition at the workplace as Jupiter is a friend of Sun (point a). The influence based on the house (11th. where the Argala causing planet is placed. where the Argala causing planet is placed. Lagna.62 2. Find the relationship of the planet causing argala and the karaka of the house. Along with the Karaka. there will be some good frinds who shall help the native at his workplace (point b) and he will get pretty decent income commensurating his work (Point b). (a) Virodha is stronger. then the person's income is supported. Find the Karaka of the House. where Jupiter is causing Argala from the 11th. The influence due to the natural nature of the planet b. 4. Find the Lord of the house.
In Sagittarius.for body and health 3.e. However if Sun is exalted. Now Sun the karaka for Lagna and hence it shall make the person conscientious and full of energy and drive. The influence of Jupiter on such Sun shall be helpful in giving power and authority to the person. Step 1: Find the natural significations of the house Here the Lagna stands for Personality. When such Sun is in cancer. where Moon becomes naturally weaker. In the sign Leo. it will give such an attitude to the person. we know that when sun is debilitated in Libra. Jupiter . From 5th. Father 10th.Dharma. From 9th. Similarly. Its a friend of Jupiter and hence shall make the person intelligent and wise. Sun is placed in the 9th house. status and authority. having Sun in the Sagittarius Lagna. The cause of strength of such Sun is Sun and Jupiter both being the karaka for the 9th house. as in these houses the Karakatva of Saturn shall be stronger. They shall also have a sense of deprivation because of the debilitation of the Sun. The cause of the weakness of Sun is Saturn being the karaka for the 12th house. Sun is the most generous and in Pisces. which is a marana karaka sthana. Capricorn or Aquarius native. .power and authority 9th. Thus when Sun is placed in the first house. attitudes etc. Sagittarius and Cancer shall be more intelligent than any other signs. However. Aries and Leo native shall have lesser hair on the head than Libra. Step 3: Find the house of which the said planet is a karaka Sun is the karaka for the 2nd. You can understand the nature of the signs and then try figure out how Sun shall behave in each of the signs. It is an enemy of Saturn and hence shall reduce the significations of Saturn making the person bald or lack hair. Judging placement of a Planet in a House We could go by step by step methodology to understand this.Intelligence 4. Also Sun in Pisces. this shows that the native shall have defective eye sight. the Sun in the Lagna shall make them look for some form of support for decision making. Moon.for eye sight 5th. Now there can be variety of intensities of results such as.for vitality and drive (which comes from the soul) and conscience 2. power. a firm and stern attitude and so on. authority. Sun shall promote the significations of the Karakas with whom Sun is friendly and shall damage those with whom Sun has enmity. It is a friend of Moon and hence shall make the body free of diseases. the independence of the Sun is lost and for such people. then it becomes difficult to salvage the eye sight.Hair Now the planet under consideration. then the weakness of Sun is cancelled to some extent. and hence shall protect the 9th house of Father and Dharma. Saturn . The steps follow: Lets pick up Sun's placement in the Lagna. Step 2: Find the Karaka of the house under consideration: Karakas of the Lagna are: 1. it is the most knowledgeable. Just think of Vivekananda. status.Recognition in profession and enterprise From 2nd Sun is placed in the 12th house. Sun. Moon's karakatva is very strong there and thus the person shall enjoy good health more than Scorpio. Sun is placed in the 5th house.. it is the most righteous and protector of dharma etc. salvaging the eye sight. Thus such persons shall be having a righteous life and happiness from father.63 25. Now Sun shows independence. a trine and shall promise good position. as these are the places where the Jupiter is very strong. generosity. If Saturn aspects such Sun. i.
Step 5: Argala Read the argala article posted in this site. Sun is placed in a kendra. who debilitated Sun and snatches the independence from him but chaining him under relationships. For example. Step 4: Find the aspect of the planets on different houses. by carrying the influence of the house it is placed in. But As Sun is strongly influencing the Lagna. This can be covered in further lessons on the influences of planets on the houses. It will try to influence the affairs of the house. then the person gets his due recognition and also becomes famous. One can work out the karaka of the house on which it is aspecting and find out the relationships of those planets. The graha drsti of the planets shall show what the planet in the Lagna wants from the houses it is aspecting. Sun aspects the 7th house. The karaka for 7th is Venus.64 From 10th. it is having argala on. However this is not so strong. However the karaka for fame is Jupiter. . making the native enterprising and gain recognition for his work. Such persons will not fall into relationships easily and always try to have an independent life style. and if it influences such Sun. Try to find the influence of a planet from its position to different houses it is having argala on. when Sun is in Libra as the influence of Venus is pretty strong on the Sun.
Moon. This is the basis of all emperical sciences. challenging Newtonian theory of gravitation. He asserted that all the movements on earth and in the universe such as a planetary system like our own solar system can be explained with the laws of gravity. father should be represented by Sun. Like Sun being the guardian of the whole solar system. Here we also find a great similarity between Sun and the Father in a household. Whatever appears to be a chance can become a regularly occurring event. makes us feel imaginative and poetical. If we take the presumption that everything in this universe is connected and open our mind to the myriads of possibilities. one who spreads the cool. This made the world of physics to search for a theory which would explain everything. the similarity between the symbols such as the heavenly bodies with us and our day to day activities. Isaac Newton of classical physics genre said that everything in the universe attracts each other by the force called the force of gravity and propounded the theories on the Universal Laws of gravitation. we realise that everything is influencing some or other event in some unknown and mysterious ways. nourishes the family member and creates a homely atmosphere with her love and compassion. We can compare him with the king. we tend to associate it with the mother in a household. without any scientific basis. The physicists of the recent age are working on a problem called the unified theory or the theory for everything. Not only this. Medicine or Meteriology. We do think of someone who is righteous and praiseworthy and someone who would never run away from his duties and responsibilities of feeding the whole world and keeping them alive. Have you ever thought that whenever we think of Sun. in a family father is the guardian. the protector and the righteous one. the compassionate one. the feeling and the thoughts which immediately occupy our mind is that of something which is glorious. However. This is no wonder that we associate Sun with father and attribute the same traits of the Sun to the father. Mother nourishes. when the time frame in which we are witnessing an event is increased. the theory of quantum mechanics. we will not feel shy of expressing our wonder that there do exist some kind of connection between the heavenly bodies and the events occurring on earth or else where. Symbols of Nature I Even if the influence of the heavinly bodies cannot be explained or verified with the current state of scientific knowledge. Decades ago the great physicist. which was once upon a time considered to be either crazy or mystical.65 26. a leader who is followed by the whole planetary system in the solar system. the scientists admit the possibilities of the theory for everything. who takes care of home. I shall try showing in the following paragraphs. keep them hale and hearty. . Like father protects the household. such as Psychology. Poets of ages have praised Moon with all their might without getting tired of praising her soothing and motherly attribute. Even though most of the cases we cannot find out the connection between two events. years later great Physicist Albert Einstein postulated another theory. If we admit our limitation to understand the cause of the events or the high level of association between the seemingly disjointed events. with the current frame of knowledge and understanding. Unlike Sun which generates among us a drive to work and march ahead. Thus in symbological terms. When we think of Moon. whose responsibility is to feed all of them. You must be thinking that where did I take you to? Why am I talking of physics while discussing Jyotish? However this overview was necessary to emphasis that everything in this universe is connected and nothing happens accidentally or by chance. Our submission to the limitation brings us to the realm of symbology where we find that some symbols do have a high degree of similarity with day to day mundane things. who is responsible for the welfare of the family members and sees that everyone is following the path of righteousness. However. However. which are guided by some invisible. the bearer of the idea would have been branded as crazy or insane. incomprehensible laws of nature. whose everyone is a subject. the mere presence of high correlation between the movements of heavinly bodies and the events in our life can enable us to predict the future. they are also researching on the possibilities of time travel in past and future. resplendent. to the utter disappointment to the world of physics. Had the idea of theory for everything been speculated decades before. none of the theories could fully explain any events which are outside their realm. soothing light of motherliness to cool down the heated earth so that one sleeps under her grace and splendour. we don’t cease to observe a high degree of correlation between the events.
66 Now we see some more associations of Sun and Moon with some of the human aspects. Moon reflects the light of Sun and creates an illusion which makes us think that Moon is luminous with its own light. This is why we verily associate Sun who is resplendent with its own light with Satya or the true one and Moon who is effulgent with the light of Sun as Maya or illusion. Similar kind of associations we tend to form when we express the nature of the Atma and Mana, the Soul and the Mind. Atma is changeless, non-destructible soul which changes body from one birth to another before merging into the Parameshwara from whom it was created in the first place. When the Atma or the soul gets separated from the resplendent infinite source of energy of the Parama-Purusha, it gets attached to a Mana or the Mind, which causes the feeling of AhamKara (the feeling of “I” ness) to appear. The mind keeps on thinking that the soul is separate from others and hence have the seeking that “I am unique and I am different” When the consciousness evolves and develops with each birth, we realise our true worth as a part of the eternal and supreme Brahman, the Mana loses out the feeling of the separateness or “I” ness and eventually gets separated out from the Atma and merges with the source of its creation. Thus similar to the nature of Moon, which causes illusion that it is luminous like Sun, the Mind also causes the illusion that we are different and unique, whereas we are only a reflection of the light of the paramatma. This similarities in the Traits of Mind and Moon, makes us associate them with each other and also make us associate Sun with the Soul, both of them have the same nature of changelessness, formlessness and free from aging and death. Similarly we can find associations with the heavenly bodies namely the Luminaries (Sun, Moon), the five planets starting from Mercury (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) and the nodes of Moon (Rahu and Ketu) with various aspects of human existence. Thus studying more on the symbology can make us divine the human nature and events occurring during the life time, which is otherwise elusive.
27. Symbols of Nature II
INTRODUCTION The following paragraphs I shall delve into the associations of various planets to various aspects of human life. In Jyotish parlance, this is known as the karakatva of the planets. I shall try to explain why a heavenly body which doesn’t have apparently any relation to the happenings our planet, earth and in our lives, is associated with it. To understand and comprehend the deeper concepts of the associations, the time is personified into someone called the Kalapurusha, which literally mean time (kala), personified (purusha).
UNDERSTANDING THE SUN ***Sun, The natural Atma Karaka*** Atma means the soul. Sun represents the soul of the Kala-purusha of the time personified. Now what is soul? People try to describe in various ways and we have a whole Upadesha of Krishna to Arjuna about the journey of the soul from different births, its mission, its purpose and its destiny in the beautiful Bhagavat Gita. Thus Sun represent the knowledge of Gita too. Now when we talk about the soul its nature, then question comes to us, what is it made up of, what does it carry from one birth to another? When we wonder and think about it more and more the only answer which we get is it is the spark of the supreme divine, the source of all knowledge. Now even though it is a small spark it is no way less than the supreme divine, which is very well explained in the sloka from Ishavashyopanishad Aum Purnamadah Purnamidam Purnat Purna mudachyate | Purnasya Purnamadaya Purnameva Vashishyate || This means that if we take completeness (Infinity) out of completeness (Infinity), then also we rest with infinity nothing has decreased from it. Thus the Atma is the source of all knowledge. We don’t realise it as we are covered with various layers of ignorance. Sun being the karaka for Atma also represents the source of all knowledge. Now when we talk of knowledge, which aspect of divinity comes to our mind, who blesses us with knowledge? Now among the trinity Shiva gives us the knowledge and hence Shiva is signified by Sun as giver of all knowledge being the source of all knowledge, someone who is resplendent with brightness and glory. Now what does the Atma carry with it from birth to birth? Does it carry the material things like money, name, fame etc? Everybody would say NO, we all leave these things in this material world when we die. Then what do we really carry as a soul? We only carry our dharma with us and that makes us take different births under different circumstances to fulfil the call of the soul. Now this is why Sun also becomes the significator of the dharma. The first person from whom we inherit the dharma from after our birth is the father. This is often told that the duty of a child is to fulfil the obligations of the father. If father has committed something and left the world without fulfilling it, then it becomes the son’s responsibility to fulfil it. Now Sun represent the father from whom we inherit the first dharma after birth. Now this is a good reason to believe that the father passes on the soul with the semen whereas mother gives the body to a child. This is a natural way of world to pass down the dharma to the child from the father and not the mother. Being the karaka of the dharma, it also shows the places where the dharma is very strong, viz., the places of worship such as Temples or churches. Also being the source of all knowledge it is associated with Books which is meant to transfer knowledge. A person having Sun very strong in the horoscope and influencing the Lagna/ Lagna lord/ Navamsa Lagna likes to read a lot and have a strong desire to gather as much knowledge as possible. ***Sun the fierce one*** Sun is full of fire and energy. Why does Sun need so much fire and energy for? This can be well answered out of commonsense. If Sun didn’t had fire life didn’t exist on earth. Who gives energy to the plant? Who gives energy to the animals and all of us? It’s no surprise that we can associate Sun with the giver of health and vitality. The drive we have is given by the energy of Sun. Now lets take a kingdom, whose king is very lose and of not much concern what is happening in the kingdom, what will happen to his kingdom? No doubt it will doom. We know that a king has to be righteous and firm to save his kingdom from any evil. Thus the protection or following of the duties of the king, or for that matter the duties followed by the father in a household requires a lot of Agni or fire. Thus the Agni tattva
68 of Sun can be associated with protection of dharma. Later we see in one more article that the Agni tattva is associated with the dharma Trikona. Fire is also a necessary ingredient of the creation process. The whole process of creation started because of the energy of the Sun (although in right proportion- More or less energy cannot beget life). This is why Sun is also known as the initiator. Now who initiates or rather what we call an initiator? Leader isn’t it! Yes, Sun is the natural leader and being the karaka for the atmakaraka, the king who guides the entire human race towards the final destination; it has to be the leader. For the same reasons while Sun initiates any yoga in a horoscope, other planets just follow him in giving results. However, not everyone can withstand so much of fire, which burns too. Thus whenever a planet is near sun, it gets burnt, a phenomenon which is called combustion. Just think what a planet can do in front of the bright light of Sun. Whenever Such things happen, they become very weak in giving their own orders on the lives of we mortals but meekly listed to what Sun say, fulfilling the dicta of Sun. Now this is the same fire which burns all the dark forces, which would have captured our planet if Sun would not have risen for a single day. It tirelessly rises everyday to give life to everyone on this earth without fail for a single moment. If somebody has a strong Sun in the horoscope, then it is unlikely that he will ever be possessed by a evil forces. The rhythmic movement of the Sun’s everyday rising from East and setting in West, without a minor deviation, associates rhythm with Sun. ***Sun the King*** We are witness to the fact that the Sun is happily moving on its own axis whereas the whole gamut of planets which we call the solar system is rotating around it as if following the orders of the king. Now if Sun becomes the King, the powerful one, which caste would suit him among the four castes, the Kshatriya or the fighter class. Even if a King is a Brahmin by birth the responsibilities demand him to protect his country through any measures and that’s the duty of the kshatriyas. Now what kind of temperament would one think of for the King? I guess most of us would think like me that a king should be of a fiery, mildly angry, honest, generous and intelligent; someone who cannot tolerate injustice and someone who know how much to reward or punishment to give for what activities. I guess you all are thinking like me; am I right in thinking that. ***Sun, the socialiser*** The nature associated with Sun is a kind of person who is very jolly and mixes around with people. It shows someone who has a keen desire to associate with others and discuss on various things. A person having strong influence of Sun can be found in parties, places of gathering, places of discussions and debates. They are a bit dominating in nature and always try to make their presence felt with their attitude and ideas.
UNDERSTANDING THE MOON ***Moon, the Natural Amatyakaraka*** Once the soul has taken birth in the material world, more responsibility is delegated to the Moon, the sustainer. Now Moon is also luminous like the Sun, however unlike the Sun who has his own light, Moon only reflects the light of the Sun. Thus Moon is not fierce like Sun and an epitome of compassion and love. The other half of father in a household is the Mother. On one hand father earns the livelihood and keeps the household from starving. However the other half, the mother is responsible to make the home a place to live. She does that by cooking food, taking care of the children and the husband, taking care of their day to day necessities etc. Thus what Sun is to creation, Moon is to sustenance. Now all the food materials cereals which are used for cooking and feeding the world is associated with the natural sustainer, the Moon. Among animals, we are most dependent the cow for she gives us the milk which is responsible for our growth, development and vitality. For this reason, Cow is regarded as the Mother in the Hindu society and with respect is called "Gau Mata". However, the Milk, which gives us energy and vitality, is associated with Sun. If the whole world is assumed to be a kingdom, with a king a queen, the associates of the king and the general public, then Moon can be associated with the queen. On the one hand, the Sun protects the kingdom from invasion from either enemies or the evil forces; the prime responsibility of a queen is to look
The phases indicate different sides of human existence or the creative principle. ***Moon the Mind*** In the journey of the soul from one birth to another birth. from which everything is emanated with the play of Prakriti. then why we feel. ***Moon the Shakti*** Sun as the purusha signify the unchangeable absolute principle. the mind also changes from time to time and gets into different shades of emotions based on that. Thus is Sun is associated with Shiva. which shall be discussed on another article. An uncontrolled mind. Thus even if we admit that we are incapable in front of the might of the mind. it can be only be achieved by directing the mind to the right path. This can be verified with the fact that in lunatic asylums. it is difficult to control the emotions of the lunatics on the full moon and new moon day as. the weaknesses of Mercury shall manifest. the same energy with whose play the creation came into existence. the two luminaries responsible for our creation and sustenance.69 after the public like her own children. For now we should remember that in Rahu’s tithi (Amavasya). Amavasya shows existence of nothing when the creative principle has started it work of creation from when the phases starts increasing in brightness until it reaches the Pournimasya or the full-moon phase. the soul must take control to direct the mind to desired objective and not stay away by the temptations of the senses. This is because we have a different mind which is attached to the soul and makes us feel differently than others. Something which changes cannot be absolute as everything which changes have to have an initiation and end and thus everything which changes are transient. think and behave differently. besides the dharma one more thing which accompanies the soul is the Mana or the mind. Shakti literally means energy. the Shakti. thus master. As the phases of Moon changes. and Moon which moves in the Field of the Absolute creating the illusion of creation and destruction. neither it has a beginning and nor an end. this can be known by seeing the phase of the moon on a given day. we can make us able by taking the help of the mystical chanting called the mantras. the senses can snatch away the mind from the right path to different divergent paths and said that to protect the mind. Thus Sun can be associated with the stable and unchangeable purusha. This continues until the time when the Soul takes the rein of the mind into its own hand and makes the mind go towards the moksha. without which we don’t have any feeling of ourselves. The mind becomes very important once we have taken birth as it makes us experience various things and makes us do different things which become the passport to the next birth in particular circumstances. whereby the . Mind has given the power of memory. As for the human birth the experiences of the mind holds the key to the liberation. However. The difference between the absolute purusha and the Prakriti is the dynamism and change. Thus different phases of the moon bring to us different emotions. follows the horses of the senses and wants to dwell in pleasure. Now the same difference can be found in the characteristics of Sun and the Moon. the play of the nature is signified by the Shakti of the Purusha. for a normal mortal. finding out who lords that particular phase of the lunar phase and then see where that planet owing the phase is placed in individual horoscopes. mantra or the syllables of mystical sound principles can be employed to put the mind on the desired path and make it do things as per the objective of the soul. The lunar phase is known as tithi in Jyotish and the lord of the tithi shall show its natural influence on everyone’s mind on a given lunar day and the specific influences based on its position in the horoscope. The difference between a inanimate thing and any living being is the mind or consciousness. its we who do things in this world. Also the weakness of the mind drawn by the particular senses can be found by having more knowledge on the Kalachakra or the cycle of Mind. Moon is associated with his consort. It retains with it all the experiences of our existence and carries it from birth to birth. where after the creation starts getting destroyed until it reaches the stage of new moon or the complete destruction. Someone who has understood the true nature of the purusha and prakriti knows that whatever transient things he witnesses is only a Maya or illusion like the phases of Moon whereas the Truth is absolute and doesn’t undergo any change. The question is if the soul is made of the same thing and has the same quality in all of us which is divine. Now this absolute shall always be there as something which is beyond time and which is not affected by any change and something which is infinite. Sun is resplendent with its own light and is always the same whenever we try to it whereas the Moon changes it phase everyday and then after a complete cycle it comes back to its initial phase. whereas our soul becomes a passive observer and follows the mind wherever it takes from birth to birth. the ultimate goal for the soul. most of us are helpless and a slave in front of our mind. Now all this happens when Moon moves with respect of the Sun. The tragedy is that even many of us know this. This is only the mind which is cause of the ego and the feeling of "I" which makes us feel that. Now. This knowledge was known to the mystics and saints of yore and they said.
it shows the masculine side of the nature. ***Mars. At many places. Because of the change of Name from Moon’s to Jupiter’s. the chart of potentialities and skills. until Jupiter gave his name to him. Mercury didn’t have a father’s name. Mercury represents the change of name. angry and assertive. finding the solution of each of these smaller problems and then synthesising the solution for the complex problem. the weaknesses of Mind shall be shown by Mars. Mercury being a learner. which takes us to the true path. ***Mars. falling in lust. This yoga gives eternal quest to acquire more and more knowledge.70 mind becomes very flickering and childlike whereas in the tithi of Saturn (Pournimasya). shows the potential to learn both good and bad things. Thus wars and revolutions are shown by Mars. Jupiter being the most broadminded one. Thus in a state. This is why Mars shows education fields such as engineering etc. however. anger and aggression. When Mars is under the influence of Jupiter. accepted Mercury as his son. Maharishi verily described the highest quality of Mars can make a person very knowledgeable in Jyotish Shastra. which is represented by Mars. when the same destructive fire is controlled by Jupiter. UNDERSTANDING MERCURY ***Mercury. However. If the planetary system is considered as a kingdom then Mars can be visualised as the Commander in chief. then Mercury’s dirties side shall find expression whereas when it is influenced by Jupiter. However. As Mercury represents the child among us. once Moon elopes with Guru’s wife Tara and falls in relationship with her. hence it represents the kiths and kins and the friends circle. who can lead a large army of soldiers with his leadership and commanding abilities. Mercury represents of highest level of Purity as shown by the sign Virgo. the traits which describe the fighter class called the kshatriyas. UNDESTANDING MARS: ***Mars the Fiery one*** When seen from Earth. Mercury’s purest side shall find expression. Because of this relationship. the Devaguru or Advisor. Because of the illicit birth condition and his later accepted by Devaguru Jupiter. From this relationship Moon is born. Mercury represents the dirties things such as prostitution as signified by the sign Virgo. this . Now this can be seen from who is placed in Kendra to Mercury in Navamsa. Thus it is represents all the relatives around us. More can found by the placement of these planets in the individual horoscopes. aggressive. who law implementation and enforcement agencies such as Army and Police is governed by Mars. it forms the fruitful Guru-Mangal Yoga. Mars is seen as a Red planet. it represents the learning abilities in us. This involves breaking down a complex problem into logical smaller parts. ***Mercury the Child*** The mythology says. However. whose fire is more predominant of Sattva guna. unlike the Sun. on the other hand. Mercury represents two extremities and possesses dual nature. what would he do is based on whose influence he is in. however it is enforced by the Army of the king. it is brought under control and it can give the highest level of knowledge. the Law Enforcer*** The law is made by the King. If Mercury is influenced by Moon. the Natural Gnatikaraka*** Gnati means someone who belongs to the same clan as the native. Thus Mercury regards Jupiter with his whole heart but hate his progenitor for the condition of illicit birth. which shows tremendous agitation. the Rational Thinker*** The faculty of rational thinking and analysis is represented by Mars. the fire of Mars is more of Tamasik and is of destructive nature. On one side. which can be witnessed in Ruchaka Mahapurusha Yoga.
the wealth giver. Mercury also represents the expression of thoughts and feelings through different mediums. which shows how we present our mind before others is represented by Mercury. is also ruled by Jupiter. Thus Jupiter becomes the Dhana-karaka. Thus the articulation ability. There are many kind of intelligence. this shall make the native wander around without any purpose and low morale. To express this. However. which is important for sustenance in this material world and with the same reasoning. The concept of God. If Jupiter is weak or afflicted in the horoscope.71 ability is misconstrued as intelligence. one has in his/ her mind can be seen from the planets conjoining Jupiter. . like Shiva. Having born from the illicit relationship. Mercury represents. He can understand the secrets behind creation and the creative forces as Saturn represents Brahma or the creator of the universe. it is said that Jupiter brings Amrit or Nectar to the house it aspects.

Rule-3: If the signs have equal number of planets and they are similarly aspected by Jupiter. the sign whose lord is the Atmakaraka is stronger. Rule-5: If they are still equal in strength. we must know the stronger of the two lords of these two signs. Rule-8: If they are still equal in strength. Rule-6: If they are still equal in strength. the placement of the Lord in an even (female) sign is a source of strength. following rules can be followed. whereas Aquarius is lorded by Saturn and Rahu. which lord to be used. Rule-7: If they are still equal in strength. To ascertain the stronger of the two signs. the placement of Lord in an odd (male) sign OR for an odd (male) sign. Scorpio is lorded by Mars and Ketu. the sign which gives a higher dasa period is stronger. Hence. To them I shall say that the sequence is revised based on my interaction with the author and my experience. then the natural strengths . The dasa period is counted by computing the signs from the sign to its lord in zodiacal direction if the sign is oddfooted and anti-zodiacal if the sign is even-footed. the lagna or the 7th. since they are the seat of truth. one need to ascertain. Taurus. the stronger of the two lords are to be taken to determine the dasa period. then the degrees of their lords must be considered.Dual signs stronger than fixed signs and fixed signs stronger than movable signs is considered.

Thus Mars is the stronger of the two lords for Scorpio. the stronger of the two signs. where they are placed. the lord contributing a larger dasa period should be considered. Rule 3: If the signs occupied by the lords are of equal strength. Scorpio: Mars is placed in Capicorn whereas Ketu is in Gemini. Libra is stronger since it is aspected by Mercury and none of Jupiter/ Mercury/ house lord aspects Sagittarius. the dasa is estimated from the lord placed in the other sign. namely Mars. ILLUSTRATION CASE I: Lord Sri Rama 1. shall give the dasa period. However. Find the stronger of the two lords of Scorpio and Aquarius. using the following rules.

For example. dasa Rasi housing Jupiter or Venus gives association of learned and holy people. all planets when placed strong display the positive side of their being and when placed weakly and afflicted display their negetive side.

Only if both the factors mentioned above are favourable. 13. extremely favourable results are obtained in the said dasa. which must be well placed in the divisional chart in a kendra or trikona. however. if in own sign the finances are very good and fair in friendly signs. The following guidelines can be used for analysing the dasa sign with respect to a divisional chart. Ketu is the cause of eclipse of the Moon and hence the results of this planet in the seventh house from the Dasa Rasi are the opposite to that of the Moon indicating loss of reputation. 1. the various divisional signs of the Dasa Rasi should be studied.

DASA SIGN AND PLANETARY AVASTHAS The various Avastha of the planets should be examined as well for their results.

Similarly with exaltation/debilitation of planets. If the dasa Rasi owned by a benefic is occupied and aspected by malefics and benefics. A sign having more Ashtakavarga points will yield beneficial results. if they are owned by benefics the initial period is very fruitful. DASA PRAVESH CHAKRA All yogas should be studied from the Gochar Chakra at the commencement of the Dasa as per their natural signification. For example. The Dasa Rasi At the commencement of the dasa. TRANSITS 1. the association of Maraka planets (from the natal rasi chart) with Dasa Rasi indicates the period of ill health. fame and wealth. 10th or Dasa rasi can be a thorn (Kantaka) in the leg making the journey of life miserable. The whole of the dasa related to a benefic planet at the commencement and end. Similarly the signs having lower Ashtakavarga point suffer during the Narayana dasa of that sign. The effects of dasa are modified by the transit of planets in it during the period. During the dasa’s of Dusthanas owned by malefic planets. Rahu or Venus in the 12th house from the dasa sign. 2.96 Dasa Rasi owned by a benefic and occupied by a malefic or owned by a malefic and occupied by a benefic produces beneficial results initially and malefic effects subsequently. cheats or superiors respectively while Moon joining them ensures such losses. 3. remedial measures may not be of much avail. Jupiter in 12th house indicates payment of huge taxes. Benefics bring good news while Malefics bring distress. Ubhayodaya or Pristodaya respectively. the malefic dasa will be overcome with fortitude and remedial measures. The Moon If the Moon is well disposed in a benefic sign at the commencement of a benefic dasa. the whole period is beneficial. after initial unfavorable results. while the ownership of benefics gives some good effects in the beginning. The house transited by Rahu at the commencement of a dasa will be damaged/obstructed during the dasa. If an evil dasa commences with a benefic Moon in transit. ASTAKAVARGA AND DASA SIGN 1. Dasa Rasi owned and occupied by malefics always yields unfavorable results while Dasa Rasi owned and occupied by benefics always gives good result. there ownership of houses will be felt. Rahu transiting Dasa Rasi gives loss of name. During the dasa’s of Kendra/Trikona houses owned by malefic planets. The disposition of the lord of the Rasi should also be examined in a similar way at the commencement of dasa. The results of the Dasa Rasi itself are obtained in the beginning. . at the commencement of the dasa brings losses due to the displeasure of government. Rahu in the second house would indicate loss of wealth. The Lagna If the Lagna rising at the commencement of the dasa is beneficial and fortified. good results follow. the good effect are reduced towards the end while. Transit Moon indicates the fortune while transit of Dasa Rasi lord indicates the bodily comforts. Sun. Saturn transiting the 8th. the evils shall be within manageable limits or can be overcome with effort. DASA vs. very adverse results will be felt towards the end. will be beneficial. During the dasa of the several signs. I will be posting a detailed article on the dasa pravesh chakra in near future.

The antardasa of Rasi’s occupied by malefics will be adverse. whereas if the number of bindus contributed is less. Arudha Pada and sign/house in the sixth house from it shall be destroyed.4. The antardasa of Rasi’s in the 6th. During the antardasa of a planet contributing higher number of bindus (4 or more) to the sarva-askatavarga of the dasa sign.8.6. 4. the natural as well as the functional signification of the said planet shall flourish. For illustration. however there is one more special condition. that particular relation/ relative would prosper. Bhratri karaka (brothers) 4.

CHARA KARAKA The charakaraka represent the karmic bondage of various souls with us. If the Paka is aspected or conjoined by Jupiter.12) are the weakest. 8th. the AV of the lord of the dasa rasi also needs to be checked. while those in Panapara (2. This shall covered in details in forthcoming articles. 2.9. The strength and influence of individual planets are seen from the points they contribute to the Dasa Rasi.5. related to the natural and functional significations of the planet concerned. When the influence of a particular relation becomes strong in our life can be seen from the association or aspect of the concerned charakaraka on the dasa sign. It shows how their influence shall shape our destiny. . 3.97 2. Vedhak and Karaka from the planet placed in the Dasa Rasi shall surely give their indications. Bodhak. The antardasa is also to be rekoned from the dasa sign. Dara karaka (spouse) The Chara Karaka placed in the Kendra (1. 3. PACHAKADI SAMBANDHA Signs or planets in the Pachak. Amatya karaka (advisors) 3. Gnati karaka (kith and kins. There are 8 charakarakas and they govern eight kind of direct relationships in our existence. then misery and suffering follows.

Death could also occur if a debilitated/malefic planet also occupies the trines from an evil antardasa. they are namely: 1.11) are weaker and those in Apoklimas (3. Matri karaka (mother) 5. if the Darakaraka aspects the Dasa Rasi. The affairs related to various relatives can be studied by reckoning that particular charakaraka as the Lagna and judging the dasa therefrom. ANTARDASA RESULTS 1. financial gains will be there. the signification of the dasa sign will prosper. Along with the SAV of the dasa sign. Putra karaka (children) 7. The antardasa can be judged the same way as the dasa. DASA SIGN VS.10) to the Dasa Rasi attain strength.7. if Saturn is in Dasa Rasi. If a particular charakaraka is well placed from the dasa sign as well as well associated / aspected by benefics. the influence of various relations are to be seen from the charakaraka. If the dasa sign lord has gained many beneficial points in its own AV. For example.
it will give the results of its ownership. the start of a year needs to be reckoned from the time when the exact portion of tithi commence again after a full cycle of Sun in the zodiac. Vedic astrology widely uses the solar return chart or the surya varsha pravesh chakra to predict the event of a year and this is widely known as Varshaphala. placement and yogas the hora lord is involved in the tithi pravesh chakra. Since the Moon phase calendar or the tithi calendar is synchronised with Sun. in trikona it will bring prosperity and if placed in dusthana or badhakasthana. . This becomes the lord of the year and has the most predominating influence on the native. otherwise unfavourable. Thus there can be minor discrepancy between the weekday as reckoned as per the english calendar and the one reckoned as per the hindu calendar. if the tithi pravesh lagna is placed in Kendra to Natal lagna. somebody who is born after 00:00 hrs need to be considered to be born in the previous day. The influence on the hora lord can be seen from the different divisional charts to find the exact nature of events likely to take place in different area of life represented by the divisional chart. Thus. Lagna: The lagna is the key which chanalises the energies of the natal horoscope to the Tithi pravesh chakra. while simultaneously taking the natal chart into consideration. Lagna. The principle of the Year lord. then the year would be favourable. If it is badly placed or afflicted. the weekday becomes the current weekday. This is based on the principle that whenever a planet is strong to give results. the knowledge was given out by Pt. then the events can leave us with some bad experiences.98 35. 1. as they represent two different aspects of our self. Weekday: Take the weekday running at the commencement of the tithi new year. Thus. This article shows how to analyse the tithi pravesh chart. This is the most important factor of the three and the strengths. Lagna lord and hora lord can be applied to any other pravesh chakra such as masa pravesh chakra or dina pravesh chakra. When the event happen. it will bring happiness. If this planet happens to be a functional benefic for the natal lagna and placed favourably in the horoscope. the tithi pravesh chart can not be read independently from the natal chart. Sanjay Rath. it will bring troubles and ostabcles. The intensity of the results can be seen from how well the planet is placed in the natal horscope. what are the yogas the planet is involved in etc. The events can be seen from the ownership. Analysing Tithi Pravesh Chakra I Tithi pravesh chakra is one of the cornerstone of vedic astrology and was hidden in tradition of SJC until. placement and yogas in the natal horoscope: 2. The year lord shall activate all the yogas and results related to it in the natal horoscope during that year. since the natal horoscope has an over-riding influence over the native. 3. However. Here the day needs to be reckoned from Sunrise to next sunrise and thus. placement or ownership and the yogas it is involved in will have tremendous impact on the main events of the year. we need to see the tithi when the Sun returns back to the same sign after an year and the exact amount of the birth tithi has elapsed. since the time needs to be reckoned from both the lumeneries. However. Hora: The hora lord at the commencement of the tithi new year set the focus of the events that are going to happen in that year. from time immemorial the scholars and pundits of India used the Tithi based calendar to reckon time. Only when the birth is after Sunrise. that commences a new year in the life of native and the horoscope drawn for that moment can show the events of the year. The lagna lord in the tithi pravesh chakra needs to be studied for success or failure in different endeavours in the year.
we see that. Thus yogas happening in the houses 1/3/7/9 shall fructify in the last part of life. 4th house is also the house of creation as it is mother who can only create or give birth. this is not the exact sequence of fructification as we still do not know in the early part. This knowledge is from the tradition of SJC and given to me by my honourable Guru. So the sequences of fructification of houses are: Early : 2/ 4/ 8/ 10 Middle: 5/ 6/ 11/ 12 Late : 1/ 7/ 9/ 3 However. ruled by Rahu. 6th and 7th from it. which is not allowed. This is because. which would give the clue to when the environment would be right for the dasa to manifest. so the sequence becomes: 4-2Now while we jump the alternate house towards Lagna. Manduka Gati: Manduka or frog is indicated by Rahu and the movement it shows is in Jumps to the alternate houses. we have to pay for whatever we have done in the past births. We have to do two way counting to arrive at the houses covered based on the satyapeetha principle (1st and 7th houses). one must look at in which house the yogas are happening. This shall be more clear when we take of the exercise to finding the sequence of Jumps. Though he has not mentioned about other houses. Natural Years of Fructification of Yogas It is normally observed that at many times. To arrive at the final sequence we have to understand two concepts. where if any yoga happen shall fructify in the middle part. we have 7th and 3rd. If this is so. So we got to Jump to the 7th from the sign which happens to be the 8th house. Now the question is why do we have to go to certain experiences? This is because. which is the predominant satya peetha. So lets start with 4th house. This goal is represented by the Lagna. which shall also fall in this category. Lets add 8th house to the sequence now: 4-2-8- . This is why. who among 2/4/8/10 shall come first.99 36. 2. Now the late fructifying houses are 1st and 9th and counting 7th from them. This particular movement is applicable while arriving at the sequence of fructification of different houses in a person's life. 1. towards the lagna. Thus if yoga occurring in the 2nd and 4th is likely to fructify in the beginning. the jump shall happen to the 7th house from the house of Jumping. Movement towards the Lagna: This is the goal of all human birth to reach the stage of self-actualisation or nirvana. The remaining houses are 5th. _______________________________________ Let's start the exercise now: The first experience begins from the childhood and care of Mother. we can extend this principle to others houses too. So the jump shall always be directed towards the Lagna and if not possible due to some constraints. counting 7th from them we arrive at 8th and 10th. This is ruled by the 4th house. we arrive at the 2nd house. Rahu is the planet who makes us take this birth and bind us in this bondage and hence Rahu rules the root of this movement. this particular fructification shall show the nature of the environment/ situations at different times that you shall be placed in and the experiences that you shall be undergoing in those environment. Maharishi Jaimini suggests in the Jaimini Sutras that yogas forming in the houses 2nd and 4th shall fructify early in life and that of 1st. the dasa's require right environment to manifest its effect. different yogas happening in a horoscope doesnot manifest during the vimshottari dasa of the planet. Now why are we interested in this manduka gati. this is not possible as then we have to jump over the Lagna. In this regard. This is because. 4Jumping 3 houses (alternate house). 7th and 9th shall fructify late.
Now what does the frog do? It would Jump to the 7th from it. Adding 12th to the sequence we have: 4-2-8-10-12From 12th.e. What persuasion the frog did to the 8th house to let it though? I don't know this!. neither can we Jump alternate house nor the 7th house from 6th and we are stuck. Adding 6th to the sequence we have: 4-2-8-10-12-6From 6th we can either Jump to 4th or 8th. whereas the Naisargika Rasi Dasa shall show what we get during their natural period. We all know that during the dasa of a planet we all partake the qualities of the graha. It cannot crawl too as 6th and 8th both taken. Neither of this can happen as then the Jump has to happen over 4th or 6th. it Jumps to 5th. Adding 5th to the sequence we have: 4-2-8-10-12-6-5From 5th. :-). 5th being closer to Lagna. Hmm. A person can be in Penury or Riches. Hence now the frog has to force to 9th house through 8th. What can we do now. and 8th would not allow to Jump over it as it is already taken. which is not allowed and hence we have to Jump to the 7th from 12th. So the sequence becomes: 4-2-8-10-12-6-5-11From 11th. 3rd. the frog can either Jump to 9th or 5th.100 From 8th house. the Frog moves to the Lagna as that is the most logical thing it can do. Now what should be the difference between the Naisargika Graha Dasa or Naisargika Rasi Dasa. lets add 3rd to the sequence and end the Jumping exercise session. But 10th being near the Lagna we got to Jump to the 10th house and now the sequence becomes: 4-2-8-10 From 10th we got to Jump to 12th as that the only house left for Jumping as 8th is already gone.e. be . It can either crawl to the previous sign 5th or to the next sign 7th. it shall fructify during the appropriate age of the person concerned. i. we have to Jump over the Lagna. This is not possible as 12th is already taken and the 3rd is not allowed as 2nd would not allow jumping over it as it is already taken. 5th is not allowed. So the frog moves to the 7th house. which happens to be 6th. Whatever it is lets added 9th to the sequence: 4-2-8-10-12-6-5-11-1-7-9Now only house left is 7th from 9th. Maharishi Jaimini suggests 3rd also to be house of end being 8th from 8th house. The sequence is now: 4-2-8-10-12-6-5-11-1From Lagna the frog can either move to 12th or 3rd. either we can jump to 6th or 10th. the jump can happen to the 3rd or the 7th. The frog happily jumps on that to end it jumping sequence. to the 11th house. if we try jumping alternate houses. both of them are occupied and they would not let the frog Jump over their houses. 4-2-8-10-12-6-5-11-1-7-9-3 The above sequence show in what sequence different houses fructify in someone's life. However. With some thinking one would realise that Graha shows animate beings and Rasi shows the field of action for the animate beings.. however we can't as they are already gone.. This can also be called the Naisargik Rasi Dasa as this shows the natural period of fructification of houses. If one of the houses contains a rajayoga. The frog has to crawl now. I am not going to explaining the significance of 3rd in ending the sequence now. i. Thus the Naisargika Graha Dasa shall show what "We are" during their natural period. The sequence becomes: 4-2-8-10-12-6-5-11-1-7From 7th. Now.
This shows that the house is not so well placed. the age of the signs would be movable -7. 4.
