Some General Observations When Venus, Mars and Jupiter in one horoscope are situated in the other horoscopein a trine or 3 ancl 11 posi_ tions, that is, if in the boy's horoscope Venusis in Taurus and in the girl's horoscope,in Cancer or Virgo, it is a favourable position.

The correct determination longovity of has always been a hard nut to crack. Thereare several methodsin vogue, both astrological and astrologico-malhematical. marakavichara The (inquiry into death)on the basisof VimshottariDasa has, at least in our humbleexperience, provedquite satisfactoryas it enables one to judge fairly correctly,the probablelength of one's life on this planet. Of the mathematicalsystems, Pindayurdaya Amsayurdaya, and especiallythe latter, seerns to have receivedconsiderable attention from severalwellknown ancient writers. Varahamihira that Satyacharya,s says view that the longevity conferred by a planet dependsupon its Navamsa positionis in conformity with the views of the majority of astrological writers. The purely mathematical methods longevity of must be applied to thousandsof horoscopes befolea conclusion can be arrived as to their workat ability. One should not reject these methods basing rhe conclusions a small numberof instances. We have been on testingthesevariousmethodsand find some of them, particularlythe Amsayurdaya, yield fairly approximate results.

At intermediatepositions it givesthe periodequal to hatf the term plus the period proportionateto the planet's distance from its debilitation point. The term of life given by each of the planets in its deep exaltationis as follows : Sun-19 years Moon-25 years Mars-15 years Mercury-l2 years Jupiter-l5 years Venus-2l years Saturn-20 years The sameplanets in debilitation give the foilowing terms : __ Sun-9 years6 rnonths Moon-12 years6 months Mars-7 years6 months Mercury-6 years Jupiter-7 years6 months Venus-l0 years6 months Saturn-10 years Theseare the termsof rife each pranetgives to the native, provided,the planetsare not affectedotherwise, either by the 7

conjunctionor by the aspectof malefics. But it is very lare horoscopes, that we come across not affected in anyway by planetary positions. Out of thesetermscertain adverse deduc. tions are to be made to substitutefor the evil aspectsand other maleficinfluences. For this what is called Harana or reductionis employed. There are various kinds of Haranas which require carefulapplication and which depend upon the intengity the evils in any particular of horoscope. Fourkindsof Haranasof reductionsshould be appliecl. They aro : 1. Chakrapatha Harana, 2. Satruksehtra Harana, 3. Astangata Harana,and 4, Krurodaya Harana. Chakrapatha Harana The Lagnais the Ascendant. The 7th housefrom it or the 180th degreeis the Descenclant.The Descendant the horiis zon. The westward direction from the Ascendant the horito zon cor/ers 12th, 1 1th, 1Oth, gth, 8th and 7th Bhavas. the Planets found within 180owest of the Ascendant undergothis reduction, while planetswhich at birth are below the horizon, i.e., occupying first six Bhavas exemptfrom this reducthe are tion. Thosethat ale nearest the Lagnain its westerndirecto tion lose a greatpart of their termsof life, while planets the at farthestdistance from tlre Ascendant are not subjected so to muclrloss. This reduction or Harana varies also with the natureof the planet. In the caseof benefics,the amount of Haranais half of what it is in the caseof malefics. The Moon, Jupiter,Venusand well-associated Mercury are benefics while the Sun, Mars,Saturnand badlyafflicted ics. Mercuryaremalef

lf thereare two or more planetsin any of thesesixhouses, the reduction must be appliedonly to the strongestplanet in eachof the houses. Satrukshetra Harana Harana After the Chakrapatha Haranais made,Satrukshetra mustbe applied. This is basedon the position of planetsin theit inimical houses. When a planet occupies an inimical sign, one-thirdof the term obtainedafterChakrapatha Harana must be deducted. This reductionshould not be made if the planet is retrograde vakra. Some authors say that Mars is or exempted from Satrukshetra Harana,while othels claim only vakraplanetsmust be considered. The Sanskritword used is vakra. By this is meantboth Mars and retrogression. But for all practicalpurposes, both planetsin rettogressi,rnand Mars are not subjected Satrukshetra to Harana. Astangata Harana Asta meanscombustion. When a planet is very close to to the Sun !t seems loseal! its vitalising influencesby being absorbedby the Sun's intense power, so much so that it practicallyuseless.Therefore when a planet is within becomes certaindegrees from the Sun, it is said to be in combustion and one-half of the term left after the Chakrapathaand SatrukshetraHaranasare caried out must be deducted. When tho

Mereuryand Venus,if retrograde, get combustonly when 12 and 8o forwardsor backwardsrespectively of the Sun. But it must be noted that Venusand Saturn are exempt from Astangata Harana even when combustas almostall authorities agreeon this point. Krurodaya Harana When one or more malefics occupy the Lagna, leduction due to their presencemust be made in the term already obtainedafter the reductionsdue to Chakrapatha.Satrukshetra and Astangata Haranas have beenmads. This is done by multiplying the number of Amsas that Lagna has passed by the total of the plgnetaryterms. The product is divided by 109. The quotientso obtained is deducted from the total term of life. The remainder is converted into months,days, etc., and addedon to the quotient which represents years. lf malefic in the Ascendantis aspected a benefic, the by Haranafractionso obtained is half of what it would otherwise be. lf two or rnore planets occupy the Lagna, tho planet .Thus nearestto the Lagna_degree must be taken into account. if Lagnais 150of a sign and Mars is 20. and Saturn2boof the samesign, preference given to ths nearest is planet, namely.

According to Satyacharya,the longitude (sphuta) of a planet is first convertedinto minutes (karas). This is dlvided by 200. The quotient denotes the toiar number of Navams' passedby a planet from the first point of Aries. The quotient is again divided bv 12 to obtain the number of Navamsas passedin the sign considered. This number denotesthe years. The remainder will give the fraction of a year granted by fhe particular planet.

As Rahu happens to be a maleficassociate the 7th lord he has every qualifiof cationto inflictdeath in his Dasa.As we have already noticed, Saturnhas the largest numberof unitsfor killing next to Morcury who cannot do his job; and as Saturn himselfcar.tnot causedeath,he must naturally clelegate poweron the planet lrls occupying sign. Such a planetwould be Rahu. his Rahuis in the 8th fiom the Moon. Hence Rahu gets tho power to kill in his Dasa. MercuryDasarulesat birth with a balanceof 5 years1 month 6 days.

Astrologyis a scienceof tende,ncies predictions not and do imply fatalism ot absolute predetermination. Consequently it is only one's naturalaptitudes leanings for speci{icoccuor pationsthat can be known from the horoscope. Therefore, no definiteastrological factorscan be fixed for eachvocation. Beforejudgingthe profession is necessary ascertain it to the mental,intellectual and physical abilitiesof the nativeby a carefulexamination the strength weakness or of otthe Sun, the Moon and the Lagnarespectively. The positionof Mercuryis equallyimpoilant. For, thoughclassical astrology has assigned the mentaloutlook of a personto tho position of the Moon, yet our observations to show that as the planet Mercury go rules buddhi or intelligence,his auspiciousdispositionis in equally important orderto measureone's mental make-up. When eitherthe Moon or Mercury receives a series of evil particularly aspects those of Rahu and Saturn,one lacksthe of strength mind neededto facacritical situationsand would involvingresponsibilityand the ability be unfit for professions to meet criticalsituations.

A study of over 50 charts has revealed that it is only in statistical 15 chartsthat the 1oth lord and the 1oth Bhavawere definite factorsin determinlng the native'sprofession. But the most powerful plsnot in the chart will also havo a beadng on plofession.

For purposes study, we may classifythe variousoccupaof tions into six broad groupsor categories,viz., (1) Intellectual avocations, (2) economicavocations, (3) aestheticactivities, professions (4) routine works, (5) mechanical and (6) trades. is This classification too general because it is impossible to draw a line of distinctionbetweenthe different categories. An author, whose main work is intellectual,may spend a part of his time in composingand printing or insurance business. and economic In his occupation,therefore,both the intellectual people suddenly come in. Thereare instances when aspects change their careers from teaching to business. This is explainedby the fact that there is a specialstimulus to cettain

qualitiesat certain ages,probably depending upon the nature the directional influences (Dasasand Bhuktis) operating of then.

Takingthe first group-lntellectualavocations-historians, philosophers, scientists, mathematicians, doctors,astronomers, astrologers, psychologists,psycho-analysts, iudges, lawyers, etc., come under this group. To the economic gtoup may be politicians, bank wolkers, insurance essigned workers, actuaries, industrialists, mill-owners and manufacturers. Musicians, actors, singers, dancers, dramatists, cinema stars, artistes belong to the Aesthetic group. Routine workers include the lalge numberof clerks,shop assistants, waitors and the general staff in offices, govetnment and business organisations. Labourers, agriculturists, carpenters, attisans, mechanics, compositors, mill-workers, etc., belongto the frfth group, The sixth, vr2..traders includethe rankand f ileof merchants, bookpublishers, stationers, grocers, printers, journalists, sellers, manufacturing representatives, etc.

Eachone of these avocations can be divided into a number of divisions. For instance, an artist may be a sculptor, photographer etchet ; a musicianmay be a violinist,vocalist, or composer flutist. An engineer or may be an inventor, designer or a mechanic and so on. Hence it would be impossible to make an entire catafogue of professionsand group them to suit astrological factors

Arthoughthe pranetary configurations can give a broad outline of the future of an individuat, it is only an intuitionarperception that can herp us to assessrhe real worth of a horoscope. lt is no easyjob to draw conclu_ sions. The astrologer has a duty in dressing his predictions up in such a way that the truth is revealed without adversoly affectingone psychologically. lf the Lagna lord, the Moon or Mercury is afflicted, a negativepredictionmay drive the native to melancholiaand frustration. Henceone must be careful in revealingthe truth. On the contrary,a native with strong Ascendant,the Moon or Mercury will be abre to digest any prediction without reacring

On the other hand, the presence Venus in a kendragives some strength. Since of both beneficsand malefics are in a kendra (quadrant) and kona (trine) and 8th lord is in a malefic Bhava, the spanof life can be said to be medium or madhyayu, Another leason for medium life is the exaltation of maraka planets, namely, 2nd lord Mercuryand 7th tord Mars in trines. The Dasas that operateduring madhyayu (32 to 75 years) are of Jupiter (in pail), Saturn and Mercury. Of these three
