In the ancient India our sages had developed by their untiring spiritual exerclses a dlvtrre eye (Dtuga drl'shtt) by whJch they could see the movements of plianets and thetr efrectson human beings. It ts on the other hand as much an exact science like physics or chemistry. deals wtth the Slddhanta and Hora. In fiact tt is a divine science which has come to us as a gift from the gods.

The Sun moves at the rate of roughly one degree of the zodiac in one day composed of 24 hours ard takes 365 days and 6 hours to complete a circle in the zodiae' The Moon takes the average rate of one hour and 48 mlnutes to go through a degree of thts sPac€.

He hardly takes a day to move in each degree. Venus moves almost at the rate of I degree per day. Jupiter is allotted one year in eactr sign of 3O degrees but generally it is found that he stays in a sign for a little less than a year. Saturn takes about 2-l/2 years or 3O months to move in a sigp of 30 degrees and thus he takes I month to move in a degree. but moves on more rapidly for sometime. his movement is very unsteady. As stated above Rahu and Kefu always move ln the reverse directlon. get backward movements and again after sometlme. Th'ls phenomenon of golng backwards is called retrogression. as a result of whlch they become statlonar5l lior a wtdle. they regain their natural courses. but in the course of thetrJourney tn the zodlac they are obstructed by eertain Invisible forces. In other words they are always in retrograde motion. Mercury is very close to the Sun and due to solar influence. Rchu and Ketu who always move tn the reverse direction take 18 months to travel through each sigtr of the zodiac. gets in front of the Sun and then begins to move slowly and goes backwards of the Sun. But in these double motions of backwards and forwards. He completes the average run in 27 days. Mercury never gets away more than 28 degrees in either dlrection of the Sun. The Sun and the Moon are never retrograde. The remalning planets are direct ln thelr motions.

AsJar as u)e are concerned we should remember that the Sun and the Moon alwogs haue dtrect mouement. The other planets have both dlrect and retogtade movements.17 planets become retrograde when they are at a certain distance from the Sun and when they move away from that distance they become direct. .

Though we do not propose to use symbols in our comin$ lessons yet tt is necessary for the students to get acquairrted with them because in many books on astrologr frequent use ls made of these symbols to save space.

As we propose to confine ourselves in these lessons to the Hindu system of Astrolory we glve you below the form of the horoscope in the south Indla ancl in NorthIndi. . the house contatntng the Mesha rashl in the form will become the lagna (Ascendant) and also the first house.la vteena (urnbha Kataka !lakara Vrlshchtka Slrnha Dhanu Tula Kanya The difference ln ttre two forms is that in Form I the rashis will always be at the locations (houses) as shown ln the form. but before we do so.27 Leccon fY NATURAL CTIARACTERISTICS OF RASHIS In thts lesson lt would be our effort to acqualnt you with detailed lnformatlon in regard to the rashls.

If the rising sign is Simha then the Lagna in Simha rashi will be the first house. the third in Dhanu rashi and so on. For example.2a Then in cloclrwise direction we will have the subsequent houses. The second house will be in Kanya rashl and the thlrd in the Tula and so on. the rising sign is Tula or in other words the Lagna falls in Tula rashi. say. the house cpntaining Dhanu rashi will become the Lagna and the first house and the subsequent houses will be counted in the clockwise manner from that house.the rising sign. Example I Example II Lagna . the one followed in North India the house marked I (First) will always be the Lagna whatever be. If the Lagna falls. Another difference is that in the form used in South Indla the number of rashi is not written in the chart and one has to remember the plac€ reserved for Mesha and other rashls would always remain the same. we mova in anti-clockwise direction and the second house will be in Vrischika rashi. In the former used in North India we show the Lagna by putting the rising sign in the first house and the eleven signs subsequent to rising sign in the other eleven houses.

Before we come to actual proc€ss of casting a horoscope, it ls necessarSr to have general information in regard to the items and terms which will be used in this regard. (ll Longltude; As the students already know longitude is the arc drawn from the North Pole to the South Pole to mark the distanc€ or location ln degrees of a particular place from a central place. Thls central place ls Greenwlch. All cities or places are located either to the west or the east of Greenwich. Let us take Delhi for tnstance. The longitude of Delhi is 77"-13' east. This mearrs that Delhi ls 77"- 13' east of Greenwich. 121 Latltude: Thls ts the arc to mark dlstance or location ln degrees and minutes of a particular place north or south of Equator. For example, latitude of Delhl ls 28o-39' north. This means tf.at the latttude of Delhl is 28o-39' north of Equator. (31SlderealTtme: Thls is the time taken by the earth to make one full rotation. It is not exactly 24 hours, but goes on changing according to increase or decrease in the durations of days and nights. It is called vernal equlnox time and it is a measLrre of earth's rotation with respect to the equinox which has avery small retrograde motlon. At the Greenwich Observatory there is a special clock which indicates the sidereal time for each moment of the day or nlght. We have mentioned this for lnformatlon only. Thefe wilf be no dlltrculty tn this respect as we

52 have ready made tables of sideral time in the Table of Ascendants by Shri N. C. Lahiri which I have already advised the students to possess, as without it, it will not be possible to cast the horoscope. For the purpose of erecting a birth chart or horosc.ope followtng information is needed: lll Date oJ Blrth: According to Hindu system of astrologr a day is counted from sunrise of one day to the sunrlse of the other day. Suppose a birth takes place at I A.M. at the night between Frlday, the 23rd March 1973 and Saturday, the 24th March 1973. Accordtng to Hindu system it will be a birth on Friday and not on Saturday, but when the date of birth is noted it should be clearly stated that the time after mid-night is between Friday, the 23rd March and Saturday, the 24th March. If we only say Friday I AM, there may be confusion whether it was before sunrlse on Friday or after sunrise. (2lTtme oJBtrth: The time of birth whether it ls A.M. or P.M. should be ascertalned. There is some controversy as to what constitutes the exact time of birth. Some are of the opinion that the exact time ls when the head or limb of the child appears. Others say that the time of birth ls when the head comes out fully. There is yet another view which we endorse that the exact ttme of btrth ts the moment when the child is completely severed from umbilical chord of the mother and becomes an independent entit5l. In spite of these, principles tn practice, we find that the correct or the exact time of birth is seldom available. Sttll people ln India particularly those in urban areas who possessed clocks, time pieces or watches and who were lrrterested tn the preparatlon of correct blrth charts of thelr ctrildren did maintaln cprrect ttme of blrth to

53 some extent. Now-a-days ln rural areas also this ls done and ln urban areas the births are generally arranged in hospitals. Our experience, however, shows that even ln hospitals on marry an occasion the enact time of birth is not noted as the doctors arrd nurses are more lnterested in the safe delivery of the child ttran the recordtng of the time of birth. (3) Place oJ Blrth: The place of btrth ls very nec€ssary to determine the Lagna at a particular place crorrectly. We should also, as far as possible, know the latitude and longttude of the place. The "Table of Ascendants'by Lahiri has given the Latitudes and Longttudes of the important cities of Indla and of many foretgn oountrles. If thns information ls not found in the book we may have to take the asslstance of a standard Atlas. Another point whlch ls very important to note that tn India the Indian Standard Time was advanc.ed by one hour from lst September, 1942 to 15th October 1945 for war purposes and was thus 6 hours and 3O mlnutes ahead of the Greenwich Mean Tlme (G.M.T.). Arry recorded tlme of thts period should, therefore, be rduced by one hour to obtaln I.S.T. for erecting the birth ctrart. For the purpose of the determination of the ascendant or Lagea we have to convert the Indtan Standard Time lnto Local Mean Tlme. There are two urays to flrd out the Local Mean Tlme-<ne from tahlng the longltudinal distance from the Greenwich whose longitude ls @ or from the Central Station of Indira the longttude of whtch has been put as 82o-3O'East. In the Lahtrt's Table of Ascendants' the Longitudes as w'ell as the time whdctr ls added or deducted to convert the varlous places ls already glven, but still we may come across places whlch are not ln t}lts ltst. In ttrat,case we shall ffrst have to flrd out the Longttude of that place-from tlre Aflas and ttren

54 cpnvert it tnto hours, minutes seconds etc., and lind out the Loeal Mean Time witlt reference to the central station ln India that Longitude of which, as has been stated above, has been fixed as 82o-3O' E or 5 hours and 30 minutes in time. We will explain this by an example. The I.S.T. of a birth at Hathras is 9-15 A.M. the longitude of Hatlrras is 78'-9' E. We have to find the L.M.T. of birth. The formula for converting the Longitude into tlme ls 15" = I hour or 6O minutes. 1o = 4 minutes. If we divide 78"-6' by 15, the time will come to 5 hours 12 minutes and 24 seconds. Now we deduce it from the longitudinal time of the Central Station, vlz., 5 hours 3O rninutes. We get the difference between the I.S.T. and L.M.T. as 17 minutes 37 seconds. Thus the L.M.T. of the above birth at Hathras would be: Hr. Min. S. OO A.M. I.S.T. 915 37 17 Minus... 57



Having explained the method of finding out L.M.T., we will now work out the ascendant (Lagna) of a boy born at Delhi at 9-15 A.M. on the l5th March, 1973. We will do this with the help of Lahiri's'Table of Aseendants'. We will go stage by stage pointing out the pages from which the relevant information ls taken. As there may be very htghly educated or mature persons amongst the students going through these lessons eagerness may arlse tn their minds to know in detail why the various processes are being followed. We would advise such students to be patient because after they have learnt the prelimtnaries they would, by thelr further advanced studles, be able to satisfy their eagerness and curtosity. Here, we

We would like to advise the students to read in thls ontext carefully pages. V. If the Lagna is Meena (whlch ls the l2th sign) 12"-15' we will not write it as 12. (2) In expresslng the longitude tlre Lagna. other bhavas and planets we use'O' for Mesha. with the Tables on pages 5-7 of the book Table of Asc.15'. This means that l lth sign viz.12". Kumbha ls over and the Lagna has gained l2o-15'in the next stgn Meena. We hope that the detailed instructions wtrlch we have given read along with those notes will make the process of worklng out the Asaendant or Lagna for any plaae whatsoever will be qutte clear to them. .59 students should not mix up tlre minutes and seconds of time with tlrc rninutes and seconds of longitude.

This means that the previous Rasi Meena is over and Lagna ls 13o-21'past Mesha or Mesha 13o-21'.endants' very carefully. In the 2nd example of working out Lagna aborve we have written the Lagna 4-19"-O5' and called it Slmha l9o-O5'. Thus if we have to say ttnt the Lagna ls Mesha 13"-21'we will write it as O13o-21'. This means that the 4th sign Kataka ls orrer and the next sign Simha has gained 19oO5'.

Lclson VIU


After working out the Lagna we have to work out the cusps of the other eleven houses. Here we may explaln that cusp means the middle point of a house or bhaua according to the Hindu System of Astrologr. We should never (as ls done acrcordtng to the western system) treat cusps as the commenc€ment of a bhaua. The longitude of the Lagna as worked out in the previous lesson is the middle point of Lagna whlch is the first bhcua in the btrth chart. In order to work out the cusps of the other houses, we may flrst work out the cusp of the X House (which you will flnd in many books being termed as M.C.) In accordance with the method given in the Table of Ascendants'. For the working out of the cusp of the Tenth House the sidereal Tlme of the Epoch (rriz. the time of btrth) would be the same as has been worked out for Lagna. Then the cusp of X house wlll be calculated in aocordance with the Table on page 8 of the 'Table of the Ascendants'. Let us calculate the X House of the naflve who was born at 9-15 A.M. on 15-3-73 at Delhi (ttre flrst orample in the previous lesson). H. M. S. Sidereal Time for the Epoch 20 24 16 Now from the Table of the Tenth House on page 8 we flnd under tlre column for 2O hours that the longitude for

6l 2O hours 24 mrnutes of Sidereal Tlme is 9-l0o-41'and that for 20 hours 28 minutes it ls 9- 1 lo-39'. Thus there is a difference of 58' in 4 minutes of time. For 20 hours ze linutes 16 sec'onds X house

For 20 hours 24 minutes 16 seconds Less Ayanamsha crorrectlon

Thus the cusp of the X House will be l@-16' of Makara After knowing the Longitude of the LaSa tf we add 6 rashls to it we get the Cusp of the seventh house whlch isJust opposite to it in the birth chart. Similarly if we add 6 rashis to the cusp of the X House we get ttre cusp of the lV house which ls opposite to the X House. Then the dillerence between the ascerrdant and X House (M.C.) i3 divtded into three equal parts and by adding t}Js thlrd pa.rt to the X House we get the I lth House and agafn addlng the third part to the I lth House we get the l2th House. By adding 6 rasls to I lth and 12th houses we get tlre cusps of the Sth and 6th houses. Similarly by addtng to the Ascendant or lagna successively the l/3rd of the dtfference between the 4th house and the ascendant, the longltudes of the 2nd and 3rd houses are obtalned. Addtng 6 rashis to tJre lon$tudes of the 2nd and 3rd we arrive at the longitudes of the 8th and 9th houses that are opposite to them. By the above method we are on$ able to obtaln the

62 longitudes of all the twelve houses; but that is not all. We have also to work out the stretch of each house. Thds we can do when we are able to find out the longitude of the ending point of a particular house and the commencement of the next house. This point of demarcation is called 'Sandhi' in Hindi. Therefore, thg simpler methocl which will give us not only the cusps of the remaining house except I, IV, VII and X, which we already know after working out the Cusps of Lagna (I) and X t{ouse, would be to divide the difference between I and X Houses by 6 and aclding successively the 6th part to the longitudes from X onwards, we will not only get the longitudes of XI and XII Houses, but also the Sandhis between X and XI, XI and XII and XII and I. In the same manner after finding out the difference between IV and I house, dividing it by 6 and by adding successively the 6th part to the longitudes of I House, we will get the longitudes of II and III Houses as well as the sandhis between I & II. II & III. and III & IV. Then by aclding 6 rashis of the available longitudes we will get the longitudes of the remaining houses and Sandhls between thern. The significance of finding out the sancthis will'be appreciated when we proceed further in our lessons. We will now work out for the sake of illustration the longitudes and sandhis in the case of btrth at Delhi at 9- 15 A.M. on 15-3-73 (the first example) ln the previous lesson.

For the sake of illustration let us prepare the bhava chart for the example horoscope. This is what we have done in chart No.73 all we have to do is to place the Lagna and other planets in the chart according to their longitudes. A planet is placed in a bhava. whatever be his rashi in the stretch of a bhava. 2. has already been explained in Lesson VIII.anets in vari_ ous bhavas. So when Lagna ls Mesha.

Navamsa means ninth part of a sign. Now with the help of this chart let us prep€rre Navamsa chakra or chart fior the example horoscope. If we see column 13. We do not propose to go into detail about these Vargas because for the bcgirmcrs it will be sufficient if they have the Rashi (along with Bhava Chart as explained earlier) and the Navarnsa charts. We have got the longitudes of the lagna and the various planets. we find this that it would fall ln the Navamsa of Kataka. For ready use I give the table of navamsa on the next page with the help of which the Navamsa Chart ean be prepared in a few minutes. The sharlvargas are Rashi (Janma kundali). If we .. six.

In the sarne way. Ravi and Shani are in the Navamsa of Chandra. Rahu in Tula and Ketu in Mesha Navamsa. Chandra and Rahu are in the Navamsa of Shukra. So we put Clrandra in Tula in this Navamsa chart. The lagna of the Navamsa Chart is Vrishchika. . we flnd that this falls in Navamsa of Tula rashi. So we will say that the lagna in the Rashi Chart is in the Navamsa of Kuja lorcl of Vrishchika Rashi.80 see column 5. Budha in his own Navamsa (he is lord of Mithuna Rashi). Guru in Mesha. Guru and Ketu are in the Navamsa of Kuja. By following thts method we will get Kuja in Dhanu' Budha in Mithuna. Shani in Kataka. we say that Kuja is in the Navamsa of Guru.

PLANETARY STRENGTH AND AVASTHAS (STATES) Planets on account of their continuous movement get into certain states of existence called avasthas. if in a horoscope Guru is in Simha rashi which is owned by Ravi. A planet in this avastha is said togive favourable results. .85 Lcsson XII . Suasthrr (healthy) or own house-A planet gets this avastha when he is in his own sign or rashi. we would say that Curu is in an enemy sign as Shukra is a natural enemy of Guru. as Ravi is a natural friend of Guru. wealth and good progeny. we will say that he is swastha. wealth. For example. Friend's sign or rashi means the rashi owned by a natural friend. fame. If Guru were in Tula or Vrishabha which is owned by Shukra. etc. Result-Fame. Each avastha produces its own result and this has to be taken into account at the time of the Judgement of the horoscope. it is said that Guru is in a friendly sign. Mudita (happy)-A planet is happy when he is in a friend's sign. 2. In a horoscope if Shukra is in Vrishabha or Tula rastri. Shanta-When a planet is in favourable sub-division (by sub-division means that he is favourably posited in various vargas mentioned in Lesson X) he is said to be Shanta. good position. The result of this is gain from conveyances. The various avasthas are as follow: Deepta (bright) or Exaltatton-A planet in hds exaltation sign is deepta. 3. respect from elders.

But then the principle as latd down by our ancients has to be remembered and judged in actual practice. it is indisputable that if a planet is in l2o to 18" in a rashi he is most powerful. becoming orphan. We have seen a number of horoscopes where planets said to be combust have given good results during thbir mahadasha.

In giving this advlce we are going against the accepted principles of Hindu Astrologl. Such planets cause losses. A planet gets sthanabala when he is exalted. 2. . (For exaltation and moola trikona signs see Lesson V). There are the following six kinds of strengths considered in Shadbalas: Hindu Astrologl<alled is the strength which a planet Sthanabala-This derfues by virtue of his occupying a particular house in a horoscope. he is in the sarne degree as Ravi he $ves excellent results. when they are postted in lagna). is in his own house. moolatrikona and friendly house or when he is in own sign in shadvargas. quarrels wlth parents. troubles.la avastha.

For our students lt will be sufficient to know the various sources of strength' Experience and practice will enable them without arithmetical calculations to Judge the strengths of planets ln a horoscope. There is a sayin$ that too much arithmetic spoils the preclictive ability of an astrologer. Believe it or not. Our classical texts have laid dovm very detatled principles to work out the strength of the planets on the basis of the sources of strength described above. this is very true.89 powerful and Shani has the least natural strength or nolsargik bala. . It is a very lengthy proc€ss and very few astrologers take the trouble of going in that much detail.

9l The following method ls adopted for calculating the baliance of maha dasha at birth. thls detailed calculation will be avoided if we obtain the balance of dasha at birth from the tables glven on pages 68 and 69 of the 'Indian Ephemeris for 1973. This tndicates that 14 years and 22 days of Shani's mahadasha are alreadv over at birth and the balance that w6uld remain at Jredit at birth will be 19 years minus 14 years 22 days. ' As the longitude of Chandra is l3o. Thus the balance comes to 9p-52'. Kataka is composed of one quarter or 3o-2O' of Punarvasu. The'extent of the whole of Pushyami nakshatra is l3o-2o'.se are concemed with the last column under which balance of dasha is glven if Chandra ls ln l(ataka. 4 years I I months and 8 days.The longttude of Chandra ls I 3o-I 2' tn the orample btrth chart. The heading of the first table ls 'Balance of Vtmshottari Dasha by tongitude of Moon'. O months and 22 days. In the example horoscope the longitude of the Moon is Kataka l3o-12'.12' in Kataka. it has passed the 4th quarter of Punarvasu in this sign and ls in Pushyami Nakshatra. In column one the longitude of Moon ls glven and in the other four columns the slgn or rashi of the Moon. The lord of this nakshatra is Shani whose total maJor period is 19 years. Therefore. 9"-52' wlll be equal to I 4 years. We flnd that we in our present ca. that is. four quarters (13'-20') of Pushyami and four quarters of Ashlesha. In column ffve the balance of dasha is given for every 2O' of longitude. 13"-20' being equal to 19 years. All. Vrishchika or Meena. For 12'we wlll have to flnd . For l3o-OO'of Katalca the balarrce of Shani dasha (maha dasha) is 5 years 2 months and 2l days. To flnd out how much it has moved in Pushyami we will deduct g"-2O'of Punarvasu from the Chandra's l3o-12'.

After Budha It will be Ketu. In the example case the first sub-period wtll be of Shani and the remaining sub-periods will be tn this Ketu. In the Maha dasha of each planet we have the sub-periods of all the nine planets in proportton to the periods of their Maha dasha. After flnding out the Maha dasha at birth we have to flnd out the sub-periods of Antardashas. 2 months and 2l days we get 4 years I I months and 8 days. This will be the balance of Shani maha dasha at birth. We hope that the students will find the method easier. order-Budha. Ravl. Guru. then Venus and so on. The order in which the maha dasha will follow has already been given in the Table of Maha dashas earlier in this lesson. 5 years. The first sub-period belongs to the Maha dasha lord himself and the sub-periods of the remalnlng eight planets will be in the order given in the table of Maha dashas. Rahu. KuJa. will be the next maha dasha lord. As this dasha system is based on Nakshatra' Budha lord of nakshatra next to Pushyami (in which the Moon is at birth in the example horoscope). Chandra.

In this manner the results have to be assessed from tlre position of a planet in a particular house-but weight hai also to be given to the natural significations as described in this lesson in coming to a final conclusion.

Budha become malefics and even killers (marakas) for c€rtaln ascendants on account of their ownership of bad houses whlle maleflcs lfte Shani and KuJa become beneflcs par excellence by virtue of the ovrnership of good or auspicious houses. Natural beneflcs llke Guru. we came to the predictive part of astrologl from Lesson KV.r43 IcsEon XVm EFFECTS DUE TO OWNERSHIP OF VARIOUS HOUSES BY PLANETS After givtng the students a general idea of the characteristlcs of rashis and planets. Because it is the ownership of a planet of a good or bad house which modifies. The trikonas are 5th and 9th houses and also Ist whtch is a trlkona as well as a kendra house. When maleflcs become lords of kendras (angles or quadrants). the efiects of hls natural good or malefic nature. When beneflcs own kendras they are sald to become evil. they are beUeved to invarlably become good. The lords of 2nd and l2th houses give good results if they are ln oonJuncUon wlth favourable planets. Ac. The present lesson is the most lmportant one from the predictive point of view and for Judgement of a horoscope. how the positions and strength etc. Thts ls what the . what is the signification of each house. Shukra. of planets are ascertained. how the vimsottari dasa. Chandra. guiding them how a horoscope is cast. to a great extent.cording to Parashari system (that is according to prtnciples of Hindu Astrologr lald down by Maharist Parashara) the lords of trines (trikonas) are always auspiclous. major periods and mlnor periods are worked out..

-4th is stronger than Ist. When Mesha will be first house. gth houses. These are three separate groups. Similarly 9th is a more stronger trine house tlnn the Sth. 3rd. Flere the 8th house will faU in Vrishabha rashi. loth houses. 6th. becomes goocl. 7th. 7th than 4th and lOth more than 7th. This is our adviee based on practical experience. So Kuja the lord of Ist and 8th for Mesha lagna will give good results in spite of his lordship over the 8th house. and amongst upachaya houses I lth is the strongest and the 3rd the least powerful. We will find this position only when the lagna is Mesha or Tula. Then another Parashari principle is that the lords of 3. In astrological terminology we call such a planet as a yogakaraka planet for that lagna. Rahu and Ketu produce good results when they are in lagna. 6. we ln actual practice find that the lord of l ltlr (llth house being the house of gains) gives monetary gains to the native according to its strength and position . the 8th house will fall in Vrishchika Rashi. In Tula lagna Shukra wtll be lord of Ist and the 8th houses. if he happens to be lord of Ist or lagna. in the signs of planets who are benefic by lordship for particular lagna.t44 Parashari principles say but in actual oiperience and working we do not consider the lord of l2th giving gootl results. The lord of 8th. When a planet is lord of a kendra as well as a trine he will be a benefic par excellence. l2th house is one of the bad houses and its lord should be treated as such. 8 and I I do evil and cause miserles in life. l lth houses. sth. 4th. Another princlple is that the good or evil planets (by lordship) becorne more and more powerful as they are lords of Ist. Rahu and Ketu produce good results when they are in benefic signs-that is. In other words. Here with due respect to the principles laid doum by the great Parashara.

nowhere in any standard classical text-book written according to the parashari system of astrologi has the I lth house been balled inauspicious. However. An easy example is of Mithuna lagna where the lord of l lth Kuja is also lord of sixth house. On the other hand. and Budha owns 7th and l0th both P. Kanya. So we do not consider the lord of eleventh house as evil. become evil. For Kanya. but Guru owns the 7th and loth the two kendras. Dhanu and Meena where we find that two kendras are 'olrned by benefics. As lord of I lth Kuja will give good results when he forms a combination with lord of another :good house such as lord of second which is the house of wealth (dhana bhaua) or lord of 9th (bhagga house) but being lord of 6th he will also create debts. diseases and enemies. It is said that benefics when they own kendra.rg . so It is possible that the lord of eleventh for a particular lagna may also be lord of an evil house. we have invariably found all such books telling us that if the lord of I lth is strong whether he be the natural benefic Guru or 'the natural malefic Shani. Budha owns the lst and the 4th. For Dhanu lagna Guru owns Ist and 4th-flrst being kendra and trikona and 4th ong kendra. the lord of l lth in a horoscope is a very beneficial partner for creating dhana Aogas (wealth giving cornbinations) with lords of other good houses. Here it is vrorth mentionlng that while the I lth lord has been called evil.i.145 in the horoscope. This is how we should follow these principles. In Mithuna lagna. Both are kendras but the Ist is trikona also. except Chandra and Ravi all planets own two houses. he will fetch enormous financial gains to the native in his mahadasha. Apart from 'this. Budha owns Ist and loth-the flrst being both kendra and trikona and loth only a kendra anJ Curu owns 4th and 7th kendras. There are four liagnas-Mithuna.

There is some controversy in this regard. The lagna represents the natlve and the lord of the lagna ls always the protector of the native. and Budha owns the 4th and 7th-both According to the strict exponents of the Parashari principles for Mithuna and Kanya lagnas.lri 'it . Budha has been treated as a neutral planet and Guru an evil one. What we have said about natural beneflcs holds good also for natural maleflcs. therefore. We are sorry to say that the contradictions of tttis nature which put the students of astrologl particularly the beginners in confusion. Whtle orthodox or strict followers of the Parashari system at one place say that if the lord of lagna being a natural beneflc owns a kendra he becomes a neutral. when assessingi the results of such planets we should attribute both good and bad results to them acoording to ttreir . they do hesitate in saytqg that the lord of lagna enhances the good results of a house where he is posited. or are aspected by them. dra.s 146 kendras.. For Dhanu and Meena lagnas Guru has been treated as a neutral planet and Budha an evil one. There is a sctrool of thought that benefics as lord of kendras do not become incapable of givlreg good results. There is no lagna in which arry maleflc is owner of two kendras. he will be good for the natlve and will not brtng any untoward results. Our view is that they are not tncapable of giving good results in respect of wealth etc. particularly 2nd and 7th whteh are called maraka sthanas (we will come to this later ln this lesson) or when they are conJoined with such planets. For Meena Guru owns Ist and lOth-the first being kendra and trikona and the lOth being only kenkendras.' but they do cause ill health and even death if they are posited in bad houses. We are also of the oplnion that if a planet is lord of lagna and also owns a beneflc house.

But when a beneflc or malefic is lord of trine and also an evil house. 6. That is. 8 and 12 are lnausplcious houses or dusthanas (bad houses). Thus our view is that 1.

who are also called luminaries. the mahadasha or antardasha coincides with the age when the death is likely to occur. There is another class of maraka planets also. therefore. these houses cause loss to longevity and are called maraka sthanas' Planets posited in these houses. Our experience and that of marry learneds is that in practice that is not true. are considered as houses of longevity.e. therefrom i. Planets Maraka or l)eath Infllctlng and the 8th. The assessment of longevity is a very intricate and complicated process and astrologers with great proficiency in arithmetic and astrologt can pinp"ir"t the period of death. The maraka planets mentioned above cause death in their mahadasha or antardasha if according to the assessment of longevity of the native. be made in case of Ravi and Chandra. but tt is possible to judge . As the l2th house to the lagna is known as the irouse of loss' sp the l2th house to every house will be house of loss to it. for lagna house isaBadhaka ln a fixed sign the 9th and for lagna in a dual sign the 7th house is a Badhaka sthana. For a lagna falling in movable sign. the l lth house or Badhaka sthana. those aspected by these planets and lord of these two houses are called marakas or death inllicting planets. are lord of the 8th house they do not become evil. On this principle 12th to 8th is the 7th house and l2th to 3rd is the 2nd house. No exeeption should. They House are those which are posited in the Badhaka (house of obstructions). its lord and the planets aspected by them.148 of the 8th house will increase.

Have we not seen cases when a person lmmediately elfter taking charge of a high position dies suddenly or after winning a large sun in a lottery is so overwhelmed with Joy that he dies of shock? According to the principles of astrologr the marriage is likely to take place in the maha dasha or antardasha of the lord of 2nd or Tthboth of whom are maraka planets also.149 w{thout much difficulty whether a person will be long lived or short lived from the structure of horoscope. We have said above that lords of 2nd and 7th are marakas-also lords of llth. The seventh house is also calledJaya bhava or the house of life partner or marrlage. 9th or l lth can give gains of wealth and also c€luse death if the time of death has arrived according to the assessment of the longevity of the native.

The lords of the 2nd. which lmprove our bhagra and which give us gains of wealth are marakas. Have we not heard of cases where the bridegrooms are ldlled soon after marriage as a result of some accldent or other causes? So both the events can take place simultaneously during the Maha dasha or antardasha of such planets. It can be argued why the lords of houses which are givers of wealth. we will deal with this subject briefly in a later lesson but detailed and complete discussion on this subJect is beyond the scope of our lessons which are lntended only for beglnners. which cause marriage.

Only when they are ncitlter conjoined rvith nor aspcctcrl by any planets. to accept the position that Rahu and Ketu are not Iords of any rashis. for the guidance of students. It is on accottttt of this principlc of astrologl that we find that while pcoplc shivcr rvherl they are told that the maha dasha of Rahu or ketu is on or is about to operate. This view is supported by Maharishi Parasara's Brihat Parasara Hora. they represent tlrc lorcl of the hottsc itr which they are positccl. until by further study and experience they are able to rorm their own Judgement.t72 Lesson XXI RAHU AND KETU We have decided. they give the results of the planets whicl-r aspect them. We would advise the students. a strong agent to the planet "arith which they are conJoireed. If they are not conJoined with any planet. but there is lot of controversy as to whether they eue owner of any rashls or not. If Rahu and Ketu occupy beneflcial houses like the . and also that Vrishabha is the exaltation rashi of Rahu and Vrishchika is his debilitation si$n or rashi. but actually when we see the results they prove very auspicious if Rahu and Ketu represent auspiciotrs planets in the chart. Similarly' Vrishchika may be accepted as the exaltation sign of Ketu and Vristrabha as h'is sign of debilitation. to have a separate lesson on these planets. All learneds in astrologl agree that Rahu and Ketu are only shadowy planets and have no physical bodies like other seven planets. Rahu and Ketu should be treated as shadowy pian'lhey represent the Iord of the sign' They also act as ets.

If Rahu and Ketu oc€upy an evil house and conJoin with lords of kendra or trikona they cannot produce beneficial results. they increase one's wealth. the latter then get power of inflicting death. 8 or 12 and if they are cpnnected with lords of kendras or trikonas. the natives will enJoy the beneflcial results durin$ the antardasha of such a lord.173 fifth or the ninth and ir they are in conjunction with or aspeeted by the lord of the maraka house 2 or 7.

In examining a house in horoscope due importance should be given not only to the Rashl. In doing so the following factors should be taken into account: ( 1) The strength. (2) The Bhava chart. almost all necessary informations with our c\omments for the judgement of a horoscope. Still we have added this lesson so that there may be no kind of confusion left. (3) The Cuspal chart. Before comir:g to the Judgement stage of the horoscope we should ensure that we have before us: (l) The Rashi chart (Janma Kundali). . Actually with this information it should be possible for a student to judge a horoscope. but also to the Navamsa and the other charts mentioned above. yoga and lagna. Each house or bhava has to be analysed carefully one by one. (6) The Navamsa chart. conJunctions and location of the lord of the house. aspects. the effects of various planets in each sign and house. in sufficient detail. (4) The longitudes of planets (Grah spast). (5) The longitudes of bhavas (Bhava spast). the auspicious and inauspicious planets for each lagna and the effects of the lords of houses when posited in various houses. We have indicated the general characteristics of persons born in a particular constellation.L74 Lesson X)ilI JUDGEMENT OF HOROSCOPE In our previous chapters beginning from lesson XIV we have given.

Thts will be Judged by the position of its lord. we shall quote principles for the judgement of bhavas as given in a very respected treatise in Hindu astrologr. in a friendly or tnimical house. We have so far abstained from quoting from arry classtcal . for the benelit of the students. in exaltation. it is avery good positionwhich in astrological terminologr is called Vargottama position.175 (2) The strength of the house ltself. 8 or 12 houses of the Navamsa chart. by aspects on the house. but hc will bc consiclered in unfavourable navamsa position if hc is in clebilitation or posited in 3.

Here. the position of planets (benefic or malefic) in the house.

(3) The position of karakas of the bhava to be judgecl has to be considercd. We should judiciously judge the effects of the Rashi in which the lagna and the Cl'randra fall. The karakas for the various houses are as undcr: First hotrse Sccond lrouse Third housc Fourth house - Ravi Guru Kuja Chandra (for mother) and Shukra (for happiness.) Guru Fifth house Kuja and Shani Sixth house Shukra Scvcnth housc Shani Eighth housc . These principles are as follows: ( I ) A horoscope or blrth chart should be judged with reference to lagna as well as Chandra. Ravi & Guru Ninth house Buclha Tenth house Eleventh house Guru Twelfth house Shani The principle to be followed ts that while Judging a bhava in addition to ottrer things like the lrcsition of the . comforts etc. (2) The effects of planets in conjunction with the bhava and those aspecting them should be taken into account.e (the sign in which Chandra is posited is Chandra lagna). but we are doing this now because the prineiples lald down are most scientific and will be of great use in the Judgement of a horoscope.lagna i. The kcrrctkas are natural significators of a house.176 texts.

the karaka of each bhava (whatever be lagna) will always remain the same.e. (8) If a bhava is aspected or occupied by tts own lord. generally destroy the advancement of the bhava. According to that author if a bhava be conJoined with or aspected by its lord who is a ..

(5) A bhava becomes completely suc-cessful and effective when it is in a beneflc rashi (this means that the lord of that rashl ls a natural benefic).e. it should lead to the extinction of the bhava. otherwlse it will on\r eause evil. (Here we mention that this is our view whlch is different from one given by the author of 'Jataka Deshmarga'. When a planet functions as a karaka for a good (auspicious) as well as a bad house it will produce good effects if it is endowed wtth strength.If there are malefics (natural) on both sides of bhava. or the 8th house. they occupy 4th and 8th houses from the same (i. (4) Beneflc planets (natural benefics) will produce good results while evil ones (natural maleflcs) will do the reverse i. the bhava ts strengthened. by its lord or a friendly planet. the lord of 6th. Thus while the functional lord will be the lord of the rashi fatting ln a bhava and may be different in the birth chart wtth difierent lagnas. The karaka is a kind of natural lord of the bhava whlle the rashi lord is the functional lord. or aspected by a planet possessed of strength. the 4th & 8th houses from the bhave under judgement). or when the lord of the bhava or lts karaka is endowed with superior strength.

8th. The same will be the position if Shani aspects bhava by his Srd. or aspects such planets. We wiU give an example. It is not logical that whether a man is goocl or bad he will never like to spoil the house belonging to him? (9) In all cases it is auspicious for any bhava to be connected with the lord of lagna by conJunction.. Our view is that by the occupation of the lst bhava by Saturn in spite of his being a natural malefic. 8th or l2th. 8th or l2th (from lagna) by conJunction. will have good appearanc€. and it ls inauspicious to have any sort of mutual Sambandha (relationship) or connection with the lord of 6th. 12th houses in any nativit5r are evil houses (In addition 3rd house ls also evil).

These adverse effects will become more and more acute when a malefic conJoins with. namely the lords of 6th. diseases etc. 12th houses. the effect of the bhava will prove mostly evil). The lord of the Saturn occupies the lst bhava which will be hls own bhava.e. aspect or by his occupation of kendra or trikona house. . good start in life and good longevity. The lord of the 12th house will cause fall from one's position. Suppose we are judging the lst bhava which is in Makara rashi.178 malefic and is possessed of strengfh. 6th. 8th. debts. while the lord of 8th will cause risk to life. the planets occupying these houses and the houses themselves are productive of evil results of the native. the native the lst bhava will give excellent results-i.

We agree with everything except ttnt if the lord of the 6th is in 6th. Therefore.

So the natlve wlll have chlldren. We find that lord of the 5th Shani is in the 4th from Sth. there are malelics in the 2nd house to Sth who will cause loss of wealth to the first child of the native. Let us treat the Sth bhava as lagna. Here the house is also aspected by its lord. Guru is in the l lth from the Sth. The position of Ketu in 8th to the Sth is also not good. But the 5th lord aspects 5th house. However. a very good position.e Sth is Guru which is very strong in the 3rd being in his own sign. . The karaka lbr tl. There is no bad aspect on the Sth house not on its lord Shani. the position of 5th lord is not good for native. but in the Sth from lagna. but not m€rny and he wtll not derlve much happiness from any chlld. The karaka for the Sth Guru is strong and there is no bad lnfluence on it by conjunction or aspect.180 In this chart we want toJudge the Sth bhava regardlng children. The results of this disposition are to be read as follows: ( 1) As lord of Sth Shani is in the 8th. the position has improved. thus strengthenlng it. As far as the child is concerned. This ls how each bhava of the horoscope ls to be judged. Sth house represents the first child of the native. Sth is also the house of progeny. therefore. he will be well off as ttre lord of 5th which is the representative of lst child aspects his own house from the 4th house to the 5th and the karaka for the 5th ls in I lth to 5th.

we should Judge its streng. of only 3o between the longitude of Shukra and the lagna cusp. Therefore. The applying aspect ls ccnsidered stronger than the separatlng aspect. When it ls beblnd the longitudinal degree it is an applying aspect and when it is after the longitudinal degree of the cusp of the btrava of the aspected planet it is separating aspect. aspects and yogas are to be Judged from the rashi chart. Yogas are only certain dispositions of the planets in the horoscope.th by the dlfference tn the longitude of aspector and aspectee whether the aspectee be a bhava or a planet. lagna is Vrishabha wfth the lagna cusp at 27'. For example. he powerfully aspects the lagna whlch is hls oum house. . Good dispositions become raJa-yogas and dhana-yogas and bad ones become avayogas (bad yogas). (2) All conJunctions. Shukra the lord of lagr" is in the Here there is difference seventh house tn Vrishchika2|. If the aspect falls within 1O or 12 degrees of the cusp (middle potnt or bhava madhya) of the bhava or the longitude of the aspected planet it is efiective. When cronsidering aspect. We would give lnformation about important yogas in one of the followlr41 lessons. Naturally the effect of the aspect wlll be more pronounced when lt is very near the cusp of the bhava or the longltudinal degree of the aspected planet.l8l Two things more remaln to be mentioned here(l) After examining the bhava in all their aspects we should examine whether there are €rny raja-yogas' dhana-yogas. darldra yogas or avayogas present in the chart and if so how strong they are. The lordship of a particular bhava should be considered from the cuspal chart and tle positton of a planet uis-a-uls another planet or a bhava should be consldered from the bhava chart or bhava chakra.

The elfects of these natural and functlonal benefics and maleflcs should be assessed as follows: (a) Natural benefics do good to the bhaua theg con(occupU) or aspect whlle so far as their natural charJoln acteristics (karakatwas) are concerned they do good whlle in good bhavas (1. waning Chandra. 3.

then as lord of 6th in 6th he is good. e. For example. if he is lord of a good house (other than 3. For Vrishchika lagna KuJa is lord of lst a good house and . he increases to a greater degree the evil significations of the house owned by him. But if he is lord of a good house also. However. if he is a functional malefic he will do more harm to the house he owns-in other words. one of which may be of a dusthana and the other a good house. if the lord of 6th whether he is Shani or Guru will.e. bring inheritance. 8 and 12) he will give excellent results of that house also. if posited in the 6th. but as lord of l lth in the 6th he will spoil the good effects of I lth house.184 In following the above principle one should not be misled by the fact that because a planet is in exaltation. For Tula lagrra. Shukra is iord of lst a gd house and 8th a bad house. Here also if a planet is lord of 8th as well as a gd house then as lord of good house in 8th he will spoil the good effects of the later house. If a natural benefic is exalted he will do more good to the house where he is posited and if he is a functional benefic also i.

Yoga is a Hindi word which means addition; but while using this term in connection with the judgement of a horoscope, yoga nreans a combination or disposition of some planets in such a way as to mar or improve the structure of the horoscope. Good disposition of the auspicious planets in the horoscope gives rise to beneficial yogas which have been given differetrt names as dhana. Aogas meaning wealth gling combinations, rajayogas meaning combinations which give name, fame, honour and wealth to the native. Still highly categorised yogas are calld maha bhagra yogas, maharaja yogas etc., to the native. Classical texts on Hindu astrolory are full of such yogas. There are thousands of them and it ls impossible to bring them all in our lessons but still we will, in order to give an idea to the students, describe in this lesson some of the goocl and bad yogas. That will also give them guidance to judge the disposition and combination of the planets in the horoscope and find out which of them could be beneficial to the native and which one would be harmful. At first we will describe how the dhana yogas (wealth giving combinatlons) and daridra yogas (poverty gling yogas) are formed. Dhana Yogas (t) When lords of 9th and I lth house are In one house (2) When lords of 9th and loth house are ln one house

These yogas will bear fruit only if they are formed in ausplcious houses i.e. lst, 2nd, 4th, sth, 7th, gth, loth and I lth. They will be of little value if they are formed in houses 3, 6, 8 and 12. Not only the association of the above planets constitutes dhana yoga but the yoga arises also if there is mutual aspect or even one sided aspect :rmongst them.

Rashi Partuartan Yoga Thls means when the lord of one sign (house) is in another sign (house) and the lord of the latter sign (house) is in the former. This yoga becomes ^ nio_ habhagga yoga if exchange is between lords of auspi_ cious houses vrz. 2, 4, 5, Z, 9, I O and I l. Such yoga gives in the maha dasha of one and the antardasha of otne, planet (who are involved in the yoga) great name, fame and wealth. However, if the exchange is between the lord of gooct house and lord of 3, 6, g or 12 it is called datnya goga which causes ups and downs and struggles in life, particularly in the maha dasha and antar dasha of plan_ ets involved in theyoga. Tlrc exchange of houses between lords of 3, 6, 8 and 12 amongst themselves is good and becomes vipreet rajayoga.

The above is the horoscope of our late prime Minis_ ter Shrimati Indira Gandhi. In this horoscope there is rashi parivartan yoga between the lord of Znd and Sth

193 and between lst and 7th. This was proved very beneflcial for Shrimati Gandhi. There was also a dainya yoga caused by the exchange between the lord of l lth and 6th. Sunapha Yoga ' When there are planets in the 2nd to Chandra this yoga is caused. It gives wealth, name and fame to the native according to the natural qualities of planet. Even a malefic is considered good in this yoga----of course he will give the benefit according to his own qualities. Ravl, Rahu and Ketu don't count in this yoga. Anapha Yoga This is formed when there are planets in the l2th house to Chandra. Here it is better if the planets are natural benefics. Malefics give trouble and benefics give the native n€rme, wealth, fame and succ€ss; but all has to be achieved by his own efforts. Here also Ravi, Ra.hu and Ketu are not considered. Durudhara Yoga Ttris is caused when there are planets both inthe 2nd and 12th houses to Chandra. Benefics give very good results and malefics cause trouble. Benefics and malefics combined give mixed results. Kemadruma Yoga This is an inauspicious yoga and is caused when there are no planets in the 2nd and 12th houses to Chandra. Presence of this yoga in the horoscope, it is said, lessens the good effects of other yogas and gives little success to the native in his life. It is believed that the evil effects of this yoga are cancelled if Chandra is posited in the horoscope in kendra to the lagna, or

famous and will enable him to be victorious over hls enemies. If the combinatlon has good aspect of Guru or Shulrra. L ag n adhl gog a and Cho.

249 above should be read along with Lesson )O( in which we have mentioned the results of the lords of various houses on aceount of their position in different houses. The lesson XVII may also be read in which we have given the results of position of planets in varlous houses. The maJor dasha of a planet lasts from 6 years in case of Ravi to 2O years in case of Shukra. The results given there will also occur in the dasha or antardasha of these plianets. Thus we lind that on account of the varieties of functions performed by planets (viz. we should study his position to see how he could act lf . So about the whole major period we can only say dasha of such a planet will be generally good or bad according to his standing tn the horoscope. In our endeavour to give as much guidance as possible in the llmited space available. While assessing tlre merits of an antardasha lord. therefore. as well as his natural qualities. to assess all results correct the varieties of the functions should be ta. For the antardasha we will have to be precise.c or malefic. his being a natural benefl. Thus in order to.

In 'order. we give some further tips for assessing ttre antardasha readings.

(l) If the major lord (mahadasha or dasha lord) is good. There will be mutual relation amongst the two planets where: (i) they occupy each other's sign. As such he gets its trait changed by the sub-lord. there will be mitigation to a great extent of the evil elfects of the sub-lord. (3) If only one of tlrem aspects. (c) A bad sub-lord reLatpL to the good dasha lord modi8es tlle dasha lord's elfecbs depending on their relaflve strengtJr in the charl (d) A bad sub-lord not related to the goocl major lord remains neutral and major lord's good effects only will be felt with traces of evil efiects of the antardasha of sublord. After this assessment the following principles may be followed to judge his effects.2to he were the dasha lord. good effects of both the major lord and antardasha lord will be felt if they are mutually related. bad effects of the sub-lord will be felt by the native. (b) A good sub-lord not related to the major lord remains neutral and the effects of the maJor lord will only be felt. (iii) 15"t are in mutual kendras. If that sub-lord be good. (a)and sub-lord (antardasha lord) is also good. If the maJor lord is also bad. If the maleflc sub-lord is weaker than the good maJor lord.

When the sub-lord is in the 2nd the posltlon ls not so bad. If they are 6. If the aspector is the dasha lord hls effects will Se more predominant and vice-versa. Practical o<perienc€ has proved thls theory to be incorrect. the antardasha will not be good ln spite of the maJor and antardasha lords both being good. (4) In the case of conJunction the effects of more powerful planet predominates. the lrcsltlon wlll be consldered bad. (6) The relative posttions of the maJor lord and antardasha lord are also of great importance. (5) There is a view that the maJor lord tn hls own sub-period (which is always the first antardasha) does not give his effects. There is a dictum ln our classical texts that dwtrdusadasha (2nd and 12th) position of tJre 'maJority of planets in a horoscope ls not a healthy stgn ln a horoscope. Such a position makes the life full of 'struggle and ups and downs. in his antardasha we should expect all good effects due from that planet. If the major lord ls good and well placed. .
