This world is Bhava Sagar – (Ocean of Becoming), and hence the Mother Goddess Taaraa is called Bhavaani (Aform of Paarvati, wife of lord Shiva) She who becomes everything and to save us from this world of becoming, she takes the form of Bhava Taarini (Takes us safely from this ocean of constant becoming) . And hence the Bhavaa is superimposed on Raashi. In Weastern Astrology it is called as houses. The first house is the house which rises on the Eastern Horizon you will see a particular Raashi (Assuming you know, how to identify the star constituting the Raashi) rising (Ascending or climbing) Suppose the rising sign is Dhanu, it is - Lagnaa or Ascendant Makara will be the – Second Bhaava Kumbha will be the – Third Bhaava Meena will be the – Forth Bhaava And so on … The houses are counted zodiacally.

Here if we take the Raashis to be Static aspect of the zodiac, the Bhaavas are the Dynamic aspects of the zodiac. The first house is the Rising Raashi, The forth house is the yet to Rise and is below the horizon. In fact it is right below the feet. (Represents midnight) The Seventh House is the Raashi which is setting in the west, just going below the horizon. (Represents Sunset) The Tenth House is the topmost (Represents noon) The first house is akin to Mesha, the fourth akin to Karka, the seventh house is akin to Tula and the tenth house is akin to Makara. Now take the 5th to 9th from each of these houses like 1st – 5th – 9th 2nd – 6th – 10th 3rd – 7th – 11th 4th – 8th – 12th These houses are in the harmony – firstly because they represents the same Tatwaa. The 5th from any house is its future. The 9th from any house is its past. These are the Trikona (Trines) The 1 – 4 – 7 – 10 houses from any house are the pillars of the sector. These are the Kendra (Squares) For example, the first house represents the sense of being ness the “I AM” feeling in any horoscope for the native (Jataka). (The Native or Jataka means the person whose horoscope is being read by the Jyotisha.)

The 5th house will represent the future sense of “I” And 9th house will represent the past sense of “I” The first and the other two houses will represent the same tatwaas. The 4th from the 1st belongs to the same motive force, Stira, Chara or Dwijbhaava and hence co-operate with each other. Like the example given in the Raashi Lesson – where the cars were moving in their particular lane as per the speed limit. The first house represents the self. Your characteristics, your nature etc. this represents your Dharmaa – That which you hold. The forth house is the lowest point where “I” sense will be at the lowest. Totally forgetting the “I” sense is Mokshaa or The Liberation. The 7th house is the opposite of the 1st house representing your interactions with the outside world. (This house is the doorway to the world) in other words, it is intercourse with the world hence this is Kamaa. (Desires) The 10th house is the topmost house (Directly over head). This represents, pinnacle of “I”. Feeling this is Arthaa. The trines from each of these four houses form the Trikonaas (Trines) of the particular purusharthaa. The four Purusharthaas are Dharmaa, Arthaa, Kaama, Mokshaa. And are called the Aayaanas or aims of life. Dharmaa This represents the person’s belief systems. Every person holds in him / her some belief system which is said to define him / her for the society. A person is born into a belief system by birth in a family professing it (first Bhaava). The person goes to a certain place for worship (ninth house). The person holds some book or words as sacred (fifth house). Arthaa The person has to define to the world at large. This “Trying to define himself” to the world is done through speech, food (second house), Work ethics, hard labor, and the ability to control the people (sixth house). Earn money, work hard and achieve power (tenth house). Kaama Every person has legitimate or otherwise desires, which can be fulfilled as per the norms of the society. Personal interactions i.e. person to person (third house), Business interactions i.e. buying - Selling, partnership, negotiations (seventh house) Social interactions i.e. Friends etc (eleventh house). Mokshaa

The deity of Mooladharachakra is Lord Maha Ganapthi as he is the deity of Ketu. dharma. is seen from this house of Brihaspati. In the Bhagwad Gita. This energy is represented by Brihaspati as we know that he is the significator of dhi shakti. How is father responsible for birth? The atma that is to take birth resides in the body of the father in a place called "Mooladharachakra".The 9th bhava signifies father. long journeys.

Ketu is known to expand the family in terms of numbers and is also symbolically represented by a yellow square. It is Surya. Therefore.

A strong 10th house determines whether a person will become a karmayogi or not.Kaliyug ABHIJIT NAKSHTRA – 10TH HOUSE AND THE RELEVANCE IN KALIYUG Vedic (Hindu) astrology is based on the lunar movement and is. As a matter of fact. Aries (Mesh) . centred around the movement of Moon (representing Krishna – Vishnu avatar). Saturn is the planet who keeps the account of all bad karmas of a person and punishes a person according to the deeds of the person.10 thouse . Besides the individual karma. this invisible (inter-Calary) nakshatra named “ABHIJIT NAKSHTRA” was fixed in the Makar rasi. However. Therefore.

Since this is in Capricorn – the 10th house of the natural zodiac. 2. This nakshatra is most powerful during the noon (12 noon) when Maha Vishnu is known to be on the move to ensure dharma and all good works can safely be undertaken during this period. the first action of a person born on this earth should be to wipe away the ‘pitri rina’.

Our Maharishis were such great seers that what astronomical science is proving today regarding the gradual drift or precession of the solar system towards the constellation Capricorn. The 1/3rd part of the invisible nakshatra was referred to Hari (Maha Vishnu) and this was found to be approximately 10 degrees (all other stars rule 13degrees and 20 minutes of a sign/constellation). thus. this one of the prime reasons why Mars exalts and also attains digbal in the 10th house. To wipe away all accumulated debts and to perform work one needs energy and this energy comes from the planet Mars (Mangal). Mars. Moon takes 27 and 1/3rd days to traverse the zodiac from zero degrees Cancer (Kark) and return to zero degrees Cancer. The fixation of Moon decides the fixation of other planets in the chart.

It is bhagwan Ram who decides who will be the king. Where does all the energy of Mars come from? Sun (Surya) (Narayan) is the only source from where Mars draws the strength/energy.

Sun = short term goals over shadow the long term/actual goals of the person. Saturn = there is too much of hard work with minimum of returns or very little achievement. . however. The positive sides apart. Saturn – Jupiter conjunction causes ‘Brahma Yoga’. It is. 3. the chief significator of ‘Dhi Shakti’ becomes the 3rd important planet for the 10th house. 2. which eventually strengthens the intelligence of the person and also helps the person perform only right and good karma. One of the most important aspects of doing any karma/action. lack of focus because of the broad base of knowledge. Mars = there is very high energy level and there is too much drive/passion in anything/work undertaken by the person. Sun also gains digbal along with Mars in the 10th house. This aspect can. therefore. Regular chanting of ‘Brihaspati Gayatri’ helps strengthen Jupiter. 4. Sun is therefore another chief planet for the activities of the 10th house. and (c) Destruction The planet occupying the 10th house signifies the karma/activity that would be performed by the individual. meaning renunciation. Mercury becomes a very important planet for the 10th house. This desire for doing a karma comes from the planet Mercury (Budh). Therefore. Sun in the 10th will give Rajyoga while its affliction will give the opposite – ‘Pravrajya yoga’. Therefore. It represents a king or top positions in the government. A weak and afflicted Mercury could ruin the life of a person due to lack of desire to perform any karma/activity. Thus.

External and Internal Bhavas Bhavas can be considered to have two significations, viz., External and Internal. The external ones are as mentioned before, whereas the internal ones are given by Varahamihira in Brhat Jataka. This difference is very important in the horoscope analysis. One must know that there are two aspects of significations of each house; one of which shows various expect of our own self , whereas the the other aspect is more related to the environment we are in and also the relations we are with… Strengths & Weaknesses of Bhava The Bhavas which are associated with or aspected by their lords or benefics (Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Moon) are said to thrive well. Those conjoined with or aspected by malefics suffer annihilation. (26) The Bhavas which have benefics in the 2nd, 7th and the 12th or 4th and 10th from them are considered favorable. (27) The benefic nature of Bhavas is destroyed by their connection with the lords of sixth, eighth and twefth or with the natural enemies of their lords. If the bhava, or its lord or the karaka is weak, then also the bhava suffers (28) The association of a bhava or its lord with sixth, eighth or twelfth or their lords cause suffering to the bhava. The association can be of following way: The dusthana lords are placed in the bhava or aspect the bhava The dusthana lords are conjoined with or aspect the bhava lords The bhava lords occupy the dusthanas A bhava should be considered weak under the following circumstances The said bhava, its lord or its karaka is weak The bhava is hemmed between malefics The bhava is aspected by malefics The bhava is aspected by the enemies of their lords Benefics do not associate/ aspect them Natural malefics are placed in the 4th, 8th, 12th or 5th or 9th Out of all the afflictions, if the two or three of them are present, the bhava suffers annihilation Significator (Karaka): If the different karakas are strong, then events attributed to them will be predominantly seen. If weak, then these shall exist only in name. With regard to Saturn, if he is strong, miseries and diseases decreases, however, if weak, it is felt in abundance The lords of the 9th and other favourable houses, though they may be malefics, nourish their bhava. This point has been emphasised by Varahamihira in the verse Lagnath Puthre. Benefics if strong contribute good fully, malefics if weak give their evil in full (34) A planet capable of giving rise of both good and inauspicious results, confer good results when it is strong and the the evil results when it is weak (37) A favourable planet if capable of conferring auspicious results fully, moderately according as the navamsa it occupies is vargottama, own or friendly or inimical. Similarly a malefic planet

e. On the contrary if they are weak and occupy the 6th/ 8th or 12th. however it would be feeble (40) If the two. the effect will be experienced by the native. friendly or vargottama (38) If the lord and the karaka of a bhava are strong and occupy favourable houses. then the indications of the bhava will be fully experienced.. the native will not enjoy them. These inconsistencies tend to discourage any new students of Jyotisha. On the basis of Samgnadhyaya. the various effects should be inferred. (44) Malefics in the sixth house confer all significations governed by the planet such as copper. association. then the influence should be considered to be mixed in nature (41) If the lord of a bhava occupies a favourable position from the Bhava itself.

Benefics in the 3rd. there are many inconsistencies in the books written by various authors. It is these three bhavas that benefics show their greatest good and malefics their worst evil.
