I request the readers to kindly go through this book and give me the benefit oftheir interpretation to help me further in this venture. I thank Sterling Publishers for their efforts. we need a holistic approach to interpret charts which has been attempted.3S predicted the person got marriedand settled down in a job.

In chart 19. The response to the first edition has been overwhelming and has encouraged me to attempt this second edition.

if you can call it one. that is. There is the housewise analysis which is widely understood by most of us. This approach also ensures that the study gets undermined by unscrupluous people indulging in unwanted debates. There are two ways of coming in the limelight . Our active life is always spent doing some activity. since much has been written about the housewise analysis. In my own very limited experience. found these principles working very wen.V.

However. it means 11150th part. and the most scientific. in my opinion. and invariably you would be able to observe some new principles emanating from the research you have undertaken. This ensures that. Nadi in Tamil also means "to search" and it is felt by some that they are called nadi jyotisha because people go in search of astrologers having palm leaves. I would . Nandi Nadi and Bhrigu Nadi. I have found that there are many approaches to this subject. you get quick attention and come to the limelight early. This book has attempted to digest the principles found in Saptharishi Nadi. there are many astrologers who have also contributed to this state of affairs. but that would not rob you of the effort put in.. What little we know of science. The best book. irrespective of the houses involved. it would indeed be a great insult to astrology if we were to can it a science. in that. This experience is nothing but the great science of astrology .to Judg_e a Horoscope by Dr B. You can delineate a chart by referring to the tenth house or the house of karma. This is mainly behind the nadis available in South India though explicitly you will not find any nadi referring to the karakatwas but only to the houses. Raman.

The other way of getting attention is to write against people already in the limelight. In astrology. of a sign. Many people are used to debating whether astrology is a science or not. in my limited study. profession. The actual meaning ofnadi is however really different. It is my humble opinion that an effort. It may prove to be true that your research does not point to any concrete result at all. Rao are very useful in this regard.Preface to the First Edition ix PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION It is indeed a great pleasure for me to be writing about a unique experience. the term used is "karma" though this word has a wider meaning In Hindu philosophy. the position of the planet Saturn and its interaction with other planets will also be able to give you a fair idea of the profession. I remain a humble student of this vast subject. One or two readings of this book is a must to understand the basics ofa horoscope. Be that as it may. must be made to try and conduct original research and test the results of the same. There is another less-known system of interpreting horoscopes which is to understand the horoscope from the point of view of karakatwas of the planets. This activity is called profession or business or employment. This option is a painstaking exercise and often is a long-drawn process. There are yet some others who have demonstrated that the lagna and its lord has much to do with the type of profession. If the principles are amalgamated properly.

that merely because one analyses things from the point of view of Saturn. this book would best serve the purposes of being a tool in their study. Raghuraman . I have thought it my duty to bring forth what I understand ofthis subject as regards profession.carefuBy.. I confess that this thought came to me as a flash after reading the works of Paramacharya of Kanchi. so that the subsequent study of the subject becomes easier foHowing the basic principles. I have myself witnessed some stunning nadi readings which have made me deeply interested in this subject. In writing this book. Some other charts have been chosen from articles written by other authors to illustrate our approach. I request the readers to go through this publication . I thank my parents and my brothers who have always encouraged me to do my studies. I also thank the printers. it is quite likely that the discerning readers would be able to add more matter to this book or would be able to explain the chart better. This I believe is the first time that this has been done . it cannot be said that the Parasariprinciples are not valid. tried to also introduce a new concept which links Vedic purusharthas to astrology. I have drawnheavily from existing literature available in this regard and have tried to apply the same to the horoscopes that I have taken up for study. I do not claim that my analysis is unique or the only way to interpret horoscopes.Therefore. the basis of this approach is also intimately connected with the Parasari principles of astrology as would be evident to the readers as they peruse through the contents of this book I have in this book.x Vedic Nedi Astrology & Career Preface to the First Edition xi be concentrating on trying to analyse profession from the point of view of the planet Saturn. Given the limitation of my knowledge as compared to the vastness of the subject. I thank my Guru. who bas been teaching me the Vedas very patiently. Since knowledge is not anyone man's birthright. In fact. Apart from this. Sri Hariharan. I do not claim any originality of'thought. I would like to state here. I thank Shatavadani RGanesh for designing the cover page.. V. I thank the publishers for their support in bringing the book out in the form in which the readers are seeing it. For such readers. This is only to show to the readers that the ancient subject of astrology is very much useful today. 1have assumed that the readers of this book have little or no knowledge of horoscopes . I win be giving an introduction to the signs of the zodiac and the karakatwas of planets. W thank God 60r making this effort possible. I have purposelychosen mostly those charts that are of people who are living today and are in some profession or the other.

In conventional astrology. Jupiter represents the self and Saturn represents the karma. Aspects of planets must be considered. The results of the basic characteristics as arrived at in the above steps will be felt during the transit of Saturn and Jupiter. Mercury is placed in a fiery sign Leo.. we utilise the following principles: b) c) i) Planets located in the same direction results in one combination. additional e) In our analysis. His transit in the sign win bring about effects as regards your karma according to the basic characteristics of your chart. Similarly. Scorpio and Pisces will fonn yet another combination. Taurus and Virgo will form another combination. This is derived from the Parasari principle of dividing the zodiac signs into directions as detailed in Chapter 1. Aquarius and Gemini will form one combination and planets located in Cancer. Jupiter will give your persona] results according to the sign he transits and the aspects he receives. while studying education. Saturn has 3rd and 1Oth aspect besides the 7th aspect. Planets located in Libra. In the other signs denoting the eastern direction are Saturn and Rahu which are friends of . and Mars has 4th and 8th aspect besides the 7th aspect. planets located in Aries. Saturn will represent karma and win denote the activity you will be involved in.

In our example chart.1. Moreover. Since the 12th and 2nd houses have friendly planets to Mercury.0 ~XAMPL[ Vedic Nadi Astrology & Career Interpreting Charts 11 I I .. no obstructions are seen for the native in getting educated . factory through which he earned a decent sum of money . iv) Retrograde planets win have to be studied taking the previous sign also into account.Moreover. Mercury has no aspect from any planet in the 7th house from it iii) See the planets located in the opposite direction also. the cumulative effect of this is that Mercury is ina fiery sign aspected by Rahu and Saturn denoting hard work. Jupiter in the West is always there to help out the native's education. Fiery signs give engineering or factory-related learning. These studies helped him get a job ina. In fact. Mercury is located in the East Other InterestlngPeatures a) of the Example Chart Jupiter represents the self and Sun represents the father. !

In the 2nd sign. and we find Jupiter located in the West. . the education is going to lead to wealth. is located Mercury's friend Venus. This is also taken from Parasari principles only and there is nothing unique in this approach. Mercury has in the 12th house the royal and friendly planet Sun. v) Exalted and debilitated planets win certainly give differing results. This means. . Mercury I ! Satum® I II Ketu Venus I Taking our example chart. This will form one combination and will have to be kept in mind as we proceed with our analysis. Saturn is retrograde and we will have to judge the results by considering the fact that Saturnis located in Scorpio also since he is going back to that sign from Sagittarius . Jupiter and Mercury are facing each other. the native will have good relationship with his father. That means. In our example chart above. Mercury. Since Jupiter isjust behind Sun with no planets in between. The royal planet Sun located in the 12th house pushes Mercury forward towards Venus.. Leo is a royal sign.II I Moon I[ . In our example. the native was pushed by his father (Sun) to go for studies since no other person was educated in the family.

Jupiter's location in the 5th house gives children who are better placed than the native. we analyse the effect of Saturn in various signs of the zodiac. Since Mars comes into contact with Jupiter first. fact. Professions . merely analysing the tenth house is not going to help one. This is a warrior sign and. the native had no daughters but only sons. d) e) f) In this manner. it has to be remembered that while the lOth house denotes profession/business/activity. e) 3 ANALYSING PROFESSIONIBUSINESS. Characteristics of the Signs ARIES The sign Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is owned by Mars . Next. For example. the person is capable of fighting to the finish. the native (Jupiter) will be religious minded but a man of few words. In this chapter. we begin by first analysing the basic characteristics of the SIgns involved. However. This is not meant to deprecate housewise analysis but is only a presentation of an alternative way ofanalysing. the person will be wedded to his work and will gain respect. Since Moon has the enemy planet Rahu in the second who will be moving anticlockwise. . he will have to work hard in this life. Therefore. the 7th house (being the 10th from the I Oth house) wi 11 also have a tremendous say on the prospects of business.12 Vedic Nadi Astrology & Career b) Since Saturn is aspected by Jupiter. therefore. Since Jupiter and Ketu are located in one direction. if you want to study in the example chart the position of the sons/daughters of the native. Therefore. the second house has a say on the means of earnings. we can easily delineate the chart from its basic characteristics without going into detailed housewise analysis. since Jupiter is in turnaspected by Saturn. and a holistic approach to do the same would be better. the 11th house has a say on the gains or profits. Since Jupiter is between Mars and Sun. PROSPECTS Introduction In studying profession. the person will possess a bad temper. we must try to judge the horoscope from various angles before coming to conclusions. The 5th house from lagnaand Moon are occupied by male planets . This is a sign which creates dynamic and energetic people. his relationship with his mother will not be satisfactory. he will have a happy married life. Sun and Mars give egoistic tendenci es. a housewise analysis will give you an excellent picture.. Also. However. we shall analyse the effect of the combinations of Saturn with other planets. we can look at the IOth house for our analysis. Moreover. It represents great activity as per our definition in Chapter 1.

In this way.This is amply evident from the brilliant architecture of those days wherein sunlight was put to use to light up the temple. Purusharthas Paramacharya writes that dharma. The conduct of Vedic rituals had to be done at particular times and astrology was used as a guide to this. and his judgement and intuition are often his only guide. taking the basic karakatwas of planets. It . As I was reading the works of Paramacharya of Kanchi. suddenly it occurred to me that a particular concept that he had enlightened as the basis of religion was the link which should be used to interpret charts to find out on an overall basis the thrust of the individual. various combinations may be worked out.. artha. The latter combination is more effective since . Therefore. I have always been wondering whether the zodiac is intimately connected with any unique concept in the Vedas.. Moreover. kama and moksha are the four concepts that cover all facets of our life. I must say that my preliminary research in this is being used in each of the charts .it establishes the native's ability outside the place of hIS residence. Moreover. It was weU known that astrology was called the eye of the Vedas because the same used to throw light on matters relating to timing events. the person will possess intelligence first and then undertake travels to spread the intelligence to other people. This places an onerous responsibility on the astrologer.

It will be noted that fifth and ninth signs of the zodiac signify religion. Also note that Aries is the first sign. weare told that if we want to pray to our favourite God.

But cheating a person in the course of doing business or profession would constitute acquiring artha against the tenets of dharma.38 Vedic Nadi Astrology & Career Linking Vedas and Astrology 39 rollowsthat this should also be reflected in astrology.. The question arises as to why the signs of Northern direction signifying moksha should not be indicative of God? This is a good question but the answer that I propose to give is that God stands not for moksha but for dharma. Leo is the fifth sign and Sagittarius is the 9th sign of the natural zodiac signifying dharma. Artha stands for having a life which will help acquire things such as family. Dharma stands for righteous conduct. Sun is supposed to be the representative of God. we must medidate on Him placing Him in the centre of the Sun.

Kindly note that the above two charts have been taken from AM June 1995 and the actualities very clearly fit into our analysis. From the above two charts it will be crystal-clear that though Jagna changes and the 10th house changes, the position of Saturn being the same and the other planets interacting in a similar manner, the persons have got similar employments. However, Mars having a relation to Saturn (being in the 12th which as per our theory denotes the comfort levels in employment) in the latter chart has shown that the person has struggled to come up. This also denotes hard work to the native. . are Let us examine the career prospects of the native below. This chart is also taken from AM June 95. Career Prospects a) We see Saturn located in Taurus, a sign of treasury and banking. Sun and Mercury alongwith Ketu in the same direction are located alongwith Saturn. This shows that frustrations and disappointments may come to the native since Ketu and Sun are inimical to Saturn.

The preponderance of fiery signs show working in a factory-related environment and Mercury with Sun shows possible government connections. See the division of the chart into West-oriented signs (3 planets and lagna) and dharmic signs (3 planets) as also moksha signs (3 planets). This shows worldly activity with a balance struck between satisfaction of desires and self-contentment. The aspects of Jupiter and Venus will certainly ensure that the person would be able to command respect and earn money. However, Mars will ensure that the person sweats it out before he achieves success. The author who has analysed this chart in AM June 1995 tens us that this person reached a high position in a public sector organisation after starting off as a clerk. Our analysis points to this conclusion. 30

This native was born on 10.7.60 with the balance of Saturn dasa at birth of 16 years, 11 months and 21 days. Career a) Saturn is in Sagittarius and is retrogade, Saturn in a sign of Jupiter is conjunct with Jupiter with Venus and Rahu in a trine therefrom in the same direction. This indicates profession plus respect plus money plus hard work. Jupiter's aspect makes smooth riding despite some hard work. This sign of Jupiter indicates business consultancy as well as law. Mars aspects Saturn from Taurus, a finance-oriented sign. Saturn being retrogade even if'he were to come to the previous sign, would receive Mars's aspect He would also form a trine with Sun, Moon and Mercury. The Moon and Mercury combination gives good intelligence and being involved in the North direction signs can give conventional professions like law and accounts. Lagna is a commercial sign Virgo and we have already studied the position of Mercury .. The possible professions arising from the above are law and accounts as well as consultancy, This is exactly what the person is doing. The preponderance of dharmic signs makes the person honest in his profession. The Iagna, Mars and Ketu are in the South signs denoting artha. The person has been, therefore, in a worldly profession. Note the presence of three planets in the North direction which should point out to the fact that the person is content in his profession. The presence of Jupiter and Saturn in dharmic sign point out to worldly activity rather than renunciation.
