Combinations For Successful Astrologers

By N. Sundara Rajan, India.
[Publisher: This article first appeared in Oct 1967 in the Astrological Magazine and for a year fan mails were published by Dr Raman in response to this article. Finally Dr Raman was forced to publish a letter stating that he will no longer publish the fan mails as it was more than a year than the articles publication. Kindly note the author uses his own ayanamsa, also for recent studies one can study Terri McCartney’s article titled ‘The Astrology for Astrologers’ in this issue]

hat makes one a successful astrologer? Scientists there are plenty but there was only one Newton or one Einstein. Likewise, among astrologers there was only one VarahaMihira and in modern times we had the one and only B V Raman. Our ancient authorities on astrology like Brihat Jataka, Phaladeepika etc deal with a number of Raja Yogas for success in different professions and various spheres of life, but they are strangely silent or speak very little about the planetary combinations which make for a successful and eminent astrologer. This was perhaps why Varaha Mihira and brilliant astrologers, who came after him, were symbols of humility. But these great ancestors have not failed in their duty to us and we find hints here and there scattered, on the combinations which make one an eminent astrologer. The rarity of mention of these rules can be imagined from the fact that after spending much time and energy on more than a dozen ancient astrological treatises, I was able to lay my hands on only

’ Rule E: Kiranur Nataraja. he says ‘If the Moon is in Leo is aspected by Mercury. Venus and Saturn in the 5th will have knowledge of Jyotisha. the lord of the 2nd Bhava is in exaltation. in Phaladeepika (Ch. in his Tamil astrological treatise Jatakalankara while describing the effects for natives born under four quarters (padas) of the 27 asterisms says: ‘A person born with the Moon in the 3rd and 4th quarters of Aswini will be fond of astrology. the native will make his livelihood by astrology and allied Shastras. Varahamihira says: ‘The native with the Moon in Cancer will have knowledge of astrology.’ Rule F: He again says: ‘A person with the Moon in the 3rd quarter of Rohini will be versed in mantras and astrological mathematics.2) says. in his famous Brihat Jataka (Ch.’ Rule B: Varaha Mihira. the native will earn his livelihood through knowledge of the planets. the native attains the siddhi of a particular God or Deity associated with that benefic and becomes a friend of powerful persons in authority. the native will be an astrologer.17. Sh.2.18 rules which I list below and place before the enlightened readers. while describing the effects of the Moon in various houses. describing the effects of Tri‐Graha‐Yogas (combinations of three planets) in the 5th Bhava. says that if the Moon is in Leo aspected by Mercury. like Varaha Mihira.’ Rule G: Kiranur Nataraja again says that one who is born with the Moon in first quarter of Visaka will be an astrologer. He also.15. Rule A: Jataka Parijata (Ch. Venus is in a common (dual) sign.5. amsa or asterism. Also I have appended in illustration horoscopes of seven of the worlds eminent and leading astronomers and astrologers of the last century.18. ‘If the Sun is in Gemini.’ Rule D: Again in Ch. the native will be an astrologer. Rule H: He further states while dealing with the 2nd Bhava and its effects: ‘The native in whose natal chart Mercury is in a Kendra.

Not only that. the above. shadbala.’ Again. But usually in practice. Further the native will enjoy wealth through Divine Favor. the native will be well‐versed in Jyotisha. the native will be a scholar and an astrologer. it is clear that all the treatises on astrology stress the importance of Mercury primarily and only next in importance come the Moon. based on a system similar to that of the Nadis. if the lords of 2nd. 2) the strength of the 2nd and 5th Bhavas and their lords.

Combination 1: ‘If no malefics are placed in kendras from the Sun.’ From. while describing various professions from the 10th Bhava. he will recite the Vedas or holy scriptures and compose them. occupants. mostly spiritual.’ Rule R: Jambunadeeyam.’ Combination 3 (Rule P): ‘If Jupiter is in a kendra or trikona and the lord of the ascendant is in exaltation and in conjunction with the lord of the 2nd or with Mercury. by himself. In the Bhava Karakatwa for success in astrology. states thus: ‘If the lord of the 4th house is a malefic and is placed in a trine. the native will be a poet and an astrologer. and 3) the interrelation of these two factors to other planets and Bhavas in the nativity. the famous treatise by Sage Jambunada. that lys down four sets of distinct combinations which go to make an expert astrologer. etc. etc) he is capable of making one an eminent and outstanding scholar in astrology.’ Combination 4 (Rule Q): ‘If the lord of the 2nd is the Sun or Mars and is aspected by Jupiter or Venus. 141 . 8th and 12th and Mercury join together or if Jupiter joins them. etc. it is found that Mercury receives help from the other planets by association. if the lord of the 2nd is Jupiter or Venus and is in exaltation and aspected by the Sun or Mars. but just to impress on the readers how this single planet. Therefore it is seen that the requisites for a successful and eminent astrologer are: 1) the full strength (by shadvarga. the Sun. the native will be an astrologer and will write treatises on astrology. is quite capable of bestowing on the native astrological caliber of a high order. This is said not to play down the significance of other planets.

The first four are the charts of the world’s most famous astrologers: Cheiro. the Moon to the 9 th and Rahu to the 10th 142 . but who in my humble opinion. In Bhava. Last but not least. In addition to the above. Prof B V Raman and the late Madras scholar Prof C G Rajan. It is needless to say though many persons may possess knowledge of astrology and some may even be adepts in reciting in whole or part the classics on astrology.) The birth star is in the 3rd quarter of Magha nakshatra ruled by Ketu. that of the late Count Louis Hamon. They require him to be a religious. Ketu to the 4th. sincere. Mars to the 8th. In deference to his wishes. The sixth is the horoscope of a very successful Madras astrologer. is the chart of an erstwhile Office Superintendent of mine. popularly known as Cheiro (chart taken from Page 391 of The Astrological Magazine. the Shastras impose on the astrologer certain spiritual duties. eminence and accuracy of an astrologer will vary according to the percentage of the sum‐ total of the above factors. yet they may not make the grade in point of accuracy of predictions. Jupiter comes to the 2nd. An analysis of the charts of some of the world’s most famous and successful astrologers confirms the above conclusions. I am not mentioning his name. truthful and honest person. Now let me take Chart no. should be ranked among the world’s foremost astrologers for accuracy of predictions and mastery of the classical texts. who was my preceptor. famed in India and some Far Eastern countries. due to deficiency of any one of the above factors. April 1967 and modified by me for Ayanamsa 22° 59'.The success. who shunned publicity and who was an amateur. The fifth is the horoscope of an eminent Indian astronomer who is very well known in India and abroad and who has a number of publications and ephemerides to his credit.1. Prof B. Suryanarain Rao.

according to 143 . Cheiro went on in his own uncanny way. He was worried for the life of the culprit and his reputation was at stake. Cheiro was restless and when midnight approached. Mercury and Venus are in lagna kendra (1st house) and Venus is exalted in Navamsa in the 2nd from Navamsa Lagna. Meyer escapes chair – Supreme Court finds flaw in indictment’ and ‘Sentence reduced to Life’. Cheiro was not told about the identity of the doctor. Also note that these two planets exchange aspects being lords of the 2nd and the Ascendant. The murderer filed an appeal to the Federal Court which was turned down. The day of execution came and he was ordered to be executed at midnight. Jupiter and Mars are both debilitated but obtain Neechabhanga due to the Moon being in the 10th from lagna. The saint. Both are Vargottama and hence very strong. ‘Dr. since Makha is the Anujanma star of Aswini. since his prediction had not come off. He will be sentenced to death. Cheiro has written in one of his books that he owes all his success to a Hindu saint whom he met in the Himalayas. Cheiro examined his hands and said he would live as there was no break in the Life‐ Line. but after an examination of the palm‐prints. Rule H of Kiranur Nataraja aptly applies to this chart and no doubt Cheiro proved to be an expert in this art. he was parting his hair and pacing up and down the room. The man had read about Cheiros predictions and he wanted to have an interview with him. the convict got hold of both his hands and begged him to say if he would live. This man will be arrested and there would be a sensational trial. The clock struck twelve and Cheiro heard the paper‐boy shout in the street below. Cheiro writes. press reporters showed him the hand‐prints of a Dr. An interview was arranged by the reporters and when Cheiro met him. Meyer who was at that time arrested on a charge of murdering a rich widow after insuring her in his favor. When Cheiro was in New York. Cheiro has to his credit a number of such hair raising predictions. the court‐room was packed and the culprit was finally sentenced to die in the electric chair. but at the last minute he will escape the chair. Satyacharyas Rule L applies to the letter and it is known throughout the world that Cheiro’s predictions came true with unerring accuracy.Rule E applies to this chart.’ There was a sensational trial as predicted by Cheiro. he told the reporters that the print was that of a man who had started his career normally but who became a pervert later.

Venus and Mars are associated with the Moon in Amsa (D9). have joined hands in elevating the native to his pre‐eminent status. Lord of the 12th Mars aspects both Mercury and Jupiter and Prof. Rao was a scholar and astrologer. grandfather of the late Dr B V Raman. took him to his hermitage and kept him for one month where he taught him the laws of palm reading. Note that the Sun is lord of the 5th from the Moon in Rasi and lord of the 5th from Lagna in Amsa. in India. I reproduce the chart given in his own book. Cheiro told his attendants: ‘The mystery of Life. Henceforth you will be world‐famous. where we are going.’ Just before his death which he had predicted to the hour. the secrets and answers to all these questions lies in the Orient. Then while bidding him farewell the saint told him ‘Go forth to the world and give predictions. though mutually inimical by nature. in the Far‐East. A peculiar feature of this horoscope is that the Sun and Saturn. the land of the Hindus. He occupies the house of Saturn and Saturn is in the 2nd from Asc and the Sun. therefore. Suryanarain Rao. why we came here. Mercury occupies the house of Jupiter in Navamsa and is aspected by Jupiter. Lord of the 4th the Sun is a natural malefic and is in the 9th Bhava. No wonder. The Astrological Self Instructor with modification for ayanamsa for 21° 49' Rule M of Veemkavi is applicable to this chart.’ Chart No 2 is that of the late Prof B. that Prof Rao was the recipient of the Suns 144 . Lord of the 2nd Mercury is joined by Jupiter.Cheiro.

Rao a great and prolific writer and he wrote many books not only on astrology but also on other subjects. Mercury and Jupiter are in Kendra from the Lagna in Rasi while Jupiter occupies Lagna in Amsa and Mercury is in trine. which accounts for his versatility in Mantra Shastra also. Saturn in the 2nd aspected by Venus from the 8th Bhava gave Prof Rao success in his predictions to an amazing degree and Rahu in the 11th from the 2nd evoked for him appreciation even from the Britishers and other Westerners.Raman.V. that of our beloved Late Prof B. I remember to have read in one of his books that Prof. Rao’s father when he was childless had a dream one night when the Sun‐God appeared and blessed him with a child. I reproduce the chart given in the Astrological Self Instructor with modifications for Ayanamsa 22° 38' 145 . That takes us to Chart No 3. Jupiter is strong by position. etc. The relative strength of Jupiter over that of Mercury made Prof. as a result of which he was named after the Sun.blessings in full measure which accounted for his success in astrology. Rao an expert in the predictive aspect of astrology to the detriment of the mathematical part which was left for his famous grandson to take over and elaborate on. These made Prof.

Incidentally it may be stated that the inter‐aspects and associations in Rasi and Navamsa between Saturn. author. 4 is that of the late Jyotirbhushana C. while in Navamsa they occupy a Kendra and Trikona respectively have made Prof Raman publisher. the Hindu system of medicine. Rahu’s position in the 2nd and aspect of the lord of that house Jupiter from a Kendra have made Prof Ramans predictions remarkably true. Jupiter and Mars would have made Prof Raman an equally eminent lawyer or surgeon had he taken to those studies. Prof Ramans success in astrology is too well known and to dwell on it too long is like carrying lignite to Neyveli. Chart No. Actually Prof Raman has written a book on Ayurveda.G.Rajan of Madras 146 . Rule N of Jataka Choodamani also applies to Prof Ramans chart if the 2nd house is interpreted as 2nd house from the Sun. Jupiter and Mercury occupying Kendras in Rasi. editor and journalist. Rule H of Kiranur Nataraja also applies since Mercury is in a Kendra and Venus is in exaltation and in a common sign in Navamsa.Rule C of Varaha Mihira applies aptly to this chart since the Moon is in Leo Navamsa is associated with Mercury.

Not only the Moon is in Cancer but is associated with Mercury the Karaka in the 9th Bhava. Rajan published more than 30 books on astrology in easy flowing and lucid Tamil and some books in English. Rule J of Satyacharya also applies very aptly. and among them Mercury gains maximum strength which has accounted for his phenomenal success as an astrologer. On the predictive side I can personally vouch from a number of letters from natives in the country and abroad. The predominant strength of Mercury has accounted for his eminence as a mathematician and astronomer of the first order. Jambunadeeyam . it would be published in subsequent issues. from which one can calculate the longitudes and latitudes of the planets for any epoch from 3200 B. the ascendant.D (about 6000 years) is a masterpiece. Also since Mercury has lordship over the Tamil language. etc. 1 Publisher: Few months back Mr Karthikeyan from Australia with the assistance of Mr Rahul Vedi. 147 .Rule D of Varaha Mihira applies to this chart. Mr. gave him indefatigable energy and until his last breath. For the more advanced research student in astronomy and astrology. Mr. subtraction.

And he has not deviated from Sripathi’s Jatakarma Paddahati.

All the planets except Saturn and Rahu‐Ketu‐the shadowy planets‐ are endowed with full strength by varga.C to 3100 A. He has rendered colossal service to the cause of astrology and also to the Tamil speaking public by publishing hitherto secret works in astrology. Naradeeyam etc.

For an astronomer. who has a number of ephemerides and other astronomical publications to his credit. But surprisingly enough. something automatic and natural.Chart No. the reasons for a lack of interest in astrology in the native of this chart are as follow: astrology. he does not know much of astrology beyond the bare fundamentals. This is a very peculiar thing. He is a scholar in both Hindu and modern astronomy and well versed in Sanskrit. Unless a person has got a Shastraic outlook and a flair for spirituality.5 is that of a famous Indian astronomer. he did not take an interest in it. astrology is swimming to a fish. In my humble opinion. Or rather. His ephemerides are famous for their accuracy and he is the author of several astronomical publications which are used by most Indian astrologers and even by some foreigners. Karaka for knowledge of the Shastras and Venus are both affected in this chart considerably while Mercury is very strong 148 . as he himself confessed to me. as ordinarily all successful astrologers right from Varaha Mihira down to B V Raman are good astronomers also. The Moon occupies Aswini 4th quarter satisfying Rule E of Kiranur Nataraja. he is not likely to be interested in Jyotisha. Jupiter. in its purest form. has more spiritual roots and it is Shastraic in its origin.

we have seen how Jupiter was considerably stronger than Mercury. In Prof. in my opinion makes a native concentrate on either astrology or astronomy exclusively. The imbalance between the strengths of Jupiter and Mercury relatively. I personally feel he will achieve success in his noble ambition. However Rules A and Q apply to the Navamsa. aspect. In this chart peculiarly none of the given astrological rules apply to the Rasi association. Jupiter and the Moon with the lord of the 2nd in the 11th (in Rasi chart) and lord of the 5th (intuition) in the ascendant and the 5th occupied by Mokshakaraka Ketu and aspected by Mercury. The ambition in life of the native is to achieve unanimity in the different systems adopted by the Hindu Panchanga makers. He looks forward to the day when a single ayanamsa will be adopted by the entire community of Hindu astrologers and Panchanga makers. etc and is exalted. Jupiter and the Moon from the 11th have made the native an extraordinarily capable and talented astrologer. The native is well versed in ancient Shastras and an adept in Tantra and Mantra Shastras. Suryanarain Raos chart. The association of Mercury. Note that almost all planets occupy the two houses. Chart 6 is that of a famous Madras Astrologer. leading to a dominance of the astrological side over that of the mathematical. according s Jupiter or Mercury (relatively) gains predominance over the other. I think Saturn who occupies the asterism of Ketu and who is in the 11th being lord of the Ascendant and the 2nd house with Ketu in the 5th accounts for the natives specialization in the occult and mystic side of astrology. thanks to the strength of the Ascendant lord and the Moon (karaka for ambition). the 11th and the 12th. This is confirmed by the fact that Jupiter and Venus occupy the asterisms of Rahu and Saturn respectively. He is noted for remedial measures and preparation of Talismans and Kavachas according to Shastras. In the present chart the process is reversed with the predominance of Mercury over Jupiter leading to a neglect of astrology. 149 .

Rahu is in the 5th from the Ascendant in Rasi and Ketu in the 5th from the Moon in Navamsa. Incidentally it may be observed that in Charts No 1 to 3. Let us test this further please.P is one. leads on to attainment of super human powers or Siddhis. As this publisher has in his possession a chart where the said native has displayed minor stunning predictive abilities like twice on blind charts he predicted the name of chart holder and at times gets intuition that in 5 minutes so and so person will call up.In passing. 2 Publisher: It has been observed that this 5th house ketu might be working on Ketu in the 5th from Arudha Lagna (AL) too. I may be permitted to add here one more function of Ketu in the 5th assigned in the ancient Hindu treatises: Ketu destroys issues or children either wholly or partly in the 5th and the Shastras attribute this to serpents curse. Thus Mr Huggins findings are confirmed in 6 out of 7 horoscopes discussed herein. Buel D Huggins that Kethu in the 5th bestows on the native psychic abilities and extra‐sensory perception. This assignment of Ketu is fulfilled amply in all the six charts mentioned above where he is in the 5th. it is destructive to the 5th Bhava in so far as it relates to issues or children.6 Ketu is in the 5th from the Ascendant and in Chart No.S.7. it happens multiple times in a day and it has been happening since 2001. In Chart No. I may state here that I agree fully with the views expressed in the April 1967 issue of The Astrological Magazine by Mr. 150 .S.P developed well and whose psychic capabilities were remarkable. who had the power of E. The Hindu Hatha Yoga Shastras describe that the Kundalini Shakti or Serpent Power in man. Ketu is in the 5th Bhava from either the Ascendant or the Moon while in Chart No 4. Perhaps destiny compensates for the efficiency in one sphere of activity by deficiency in another! Chart No 7 is that of an erstwhile Office Superintendent of mine. if developed fully. Ketu is in the 5th from the Moon. of which 2 E. Thus while the serpent power represented by Ketu bestows on the native the power of extra sensory perception or occult and mystic gifts of intuition.

News came that the Chinese had crossed the Sela Pass and were on the threshold of the plains of Assam. Myself and my colleagues were sitting opposite to the Superintendent in the office. He had mastered all the classical texts on astrology and when you had a doubt and asked him. followed by his inimitable definition and explanation which could do credit to an ancient commentator like Bhattotpala. 151 . therefore. In Parliament there was a big uproar which was echoed in the Congress Working Committee. was an amateur and. His achievements will speak for themselves and I was myself witness to some of his outstanding and uncanny predictions.The native. in my humble opinion. Uttara Kalamrita or Phaladeepika. in addition.

Naturally as any other patriotic Indian. we were worried over the outcome of the war. he would come out with the appropriate shloka from such diverse and varied authorities as Jataka Chandrika.

Rule M of Veemakavi also applies. The Moon. And we all received a pleasant shock. that success in astrology. Saraswathi Yoga is present since Mercury and Jupiter are in Kendras and Venus is in the 2nd and Jupiter occupies his own house. and none of us could possibly leak out the information in such a short time and even if it had leaked out.

Yet. my friends. on every Tuesday I have performed Subramanya Sahasranama and on every Friday I have performed Lalita Sahasranama without fail. I have carefully selected. Instances such as this are numerous and for want of space I have given only two. From these it appears to my humble self. especially since none of the group except myself was known to him. First. in a mystic tone: ‘For twenty‐five years now. will be the outcome of the war?’ He casually threw a file in an outgoing tray and pat came his reply: ‘Don’t worry. The next morning at 10 a. when. the marriage was settled exactly in two moths and he attended and blessed me. what in your opinion. as soon as I sat opposite to him the next morning. since he lived in a place some 25 miles away. At other times he used his tongue as a weapon with bitter sarcasm and felled many a powerful opponent.’ Believe me. 152 . Rule Q of the same text applies to the letter.’ We took it lightly. We asked him: ‘Sir. my marriage negotiations were taking place and the bride’s party had only the previous night visited us and after talks. though debilitated in Rasi. Rule O of Jataka Choodamani applies partly except for the conjunction of the Moon with Saturn. with his forehead bedecked with lines of the sacred Vibhuti with a spot of Kum‐ Kum in the centre.I can still vividly picture him sitting there. obtains Neechabhanga. as in any other walk of life. exactly in four weeks.7) there are some good yogas for an astrologer of gift and intuition. the rules which deal with success in astrology. the native is a Devi‐Upasaka.

On another occasion. after much time and energy. The negotiations of the previous night were known only to the members of our family and to the bride’s family. I attended the office as usual. Negotiations for your marriage are under way and you will get married in two months. It may be seen that one or more of the rules apply to all the horoscopes under reference. When he spoke in a lighter vein his speech was replete with alliteration and similes.
