Transits and natal references

Introduction
P.V.R. Narasimha Rao, B.Tech, M.S.
By transits or gochaara, we mean the motion of planets in the skies. By the transit or chaara or
gochaara position of a planet, we mean the position occupied by a planet at a given time. By the natal
or radical or birth or janma position of a planet, we mean the position occupied by a planet at the time
of one’s birth.

By correlating the transit positions on a given day with the natal positions of several reference points,
we can draw some conclusions about the nature of results experienced by the native on that given day.

Transits from Moon

The most popular natal reference in transit analysis is Moon. Moon is the significator of mind and
analysis of planetary positions with respect to Moon shows the mental state. Depending on the houses
occupied by transit planets with respect to natal Moon, they exert different influences on one’s mental
state. The transit of Vimsottari dasa lord is particularly important, because he is the one who has the
greatest influence on one’s mental state during a period.

Other Natal References

We can analyze transits with respect to lagna and paaka lagna. Lagna is the hub of vitality and one’s
personality in a chart. Using the ashtakavarga tables, we can decipher whether the transit of a planet in
a house from lagna is favorable or not. We can see which house a planet is transiting in, with respect
to natal lagna, and expect the planet to influence the matters of that house. The influence exerted by a
transit planet on the house occupied by it depends on its inherent nature and its significations in the
natal chart. For example, Jupiter transiting in the Ta may give marriage to someone born in Sc lagna,
because Ta is the 7th house from Sc. Saturn transiting in Ar may give relationship problems or marital
problems for someone born in Li lagna, because Ar is the 7th house from Li.

We can also look at the aspects cast by transiting planets. Suppose Jupiter is transiting in Vi and
someone has lagna in Sc. Jupiter aspects Ta, the 7th house from Sc, when he is in Vi. So Jupiter can
give marriage during his Vi transit also. We can look at the aspects cast by transiting planets on the
rasis containing the natal houses and the natal planets. Suppose someone has lagna in Sc and Venus in
Pi in natal chart. Then the 7th house is in Ta and Venus, the significator of marriage, is in Pi. Jupiter
transiting in Vi aspects both Ta and Pi and hence he may give marriage.
Thus we should look at the rasis occupied and aspected by planets in their transit and find out which
houses and planets occupy those rasis in the natal chart. Based on that, we should guess the results
given by the planets. A planet occupying or aspecting a rasi in transit influences the matters
signified by the houses and planets stationed in that rasi in the natal chart. The exact nature of the
influence exerted by a planet depends on its inherent nature and the matters it stands for in the natal
chart. For example, if the 5th lord in the natal chart is occupying the 8th house from natal lagna in
8
transit, some troubles related to children may be expected. If Mars is the 8th lord in the natal chart
and aspects, in transit, the rasis occupied by Venus and 7th lord in the natal chart, then some
disturbances in marital life may be expected.

Sahams are useful in transit analysis. Sahams are the significant points in the zodiac. For example,
when the 7th lord or Venus transits close to vivaha saham, one may get married. When the 6th lord or
8th lord or Mars or Rahu transits close to kali saham, one may have an accident.

A malefic planet transiting in janma rasi may give mental worries and a malefic planet transiting in
natal lagna may affect the vitality of the native and create obstacles in his efforts. On the other hand,
paaka lagna explicitly stands for the physical self and a malefic planet transiting in paaka lagna may
give bodily complaints. Similarly planets occupying or aspecting arudha padas in transit may give
relevant results. For example, Saturn’s transit in A10 (arudha of the 10
th
house) can be bad for career,
Jupiter’s transit in A9 is good for fortune and so on.

Transits and Divisional Charts

Though the motivation for the approach described here comes from some principles described in
classics, the actual approach is essentially based on this author’s own researches. This author heard
about “Bhrigu transits”, which correlate the transit positions in navamsa chart with the natal positions
in rasi chart. However, he does not know much about the tradition of Bhrigu transits to conclude
whether or not his findings are loosely related to that tradition.

Though this author prefers to teach only those approaches that have the sanction of maharshis, he finds
this particular approach superior to most other techniques of transit analysis. Moreover, this approach
does not violate any teachings of maharshis. This is also a fertile area for research and deserves our
attention. Hence it will be covered here. However, readers are advised to keep in mind that what
follows is a product of the very limited intelligence of this author and hence prone to errors. Readers
are encouraged to question and to conduct further researches in this area.

We said that a planet occupying or aspecting a rasi in transit influences the matters signified by
the houses and planets stationed in that rasi in the natal chart. For example, we said that Jupiter
transiting over Venus may give marriage. However, we know that navamsa is the chart that shows
marriage. So, is there any significance for Jupiter’s rasi chart transit over the navamsa of Venus? In
other words, if Venus is in Cancer in navamsa, can Jupiter transiting in Cancer in transit rasi chart
bring marriage?

We do not have different zodiacs for different divisional charts. All the divisional charts use the same
zodiac. So Cancer in natal navamsa chart and Cancer in transit rasi chart are not different. They are
one and the same. If Jupiter transiting in Cancer can influence the house and planets stationed in
Cancer in rasi chart, he should be able to influence the house and planets stationed in Cancer in
navamsa chart too [for example if Venus is there this signifies marriage]! We can extend this logic to
all the divisional charts.

Rasi chart shows everything that exists at the physical level. Divisional charts show various areas
of life. The interaction between the two decides how events in various areas of life materialize at
the physical level. Natal chart shows the innate potential. Transit chart shows the temporary
influences. The interaction between the two decides how temporary influences convert innate potential
into actions and life events.

So the most important interactions are those between
9

(1) a natal divisional chart and the transit rasi chart, and,
(2) the natal rasi chart and a transit divisional chart [D-x ; where D-x is divisional
chart of interest ; x=1(Natal); x=2 (Wealth); x=4 (Net Assets) etc.]

Here (1) shows how innate potential in a particular area of life is influenced at a given time to result in
action at the physical level. This helps us in coarse timing of events. We can fine-tune the timing of
events with
(2), which shows how the potential at the physical level is transformed into an event in a particular
area of life.


Example for (1) :

Natal Divisional (D-2) Transit Rasi Chart (of D-1)


In the Transit Rasi Chart above (see example 2 for Rasi D-1 chart) when does Jupiter exactly transit
the Punya Sahama point (Fortune, good deeds etc.) after the date of 2
nd
April 2008 @ 10:44 am. The
computer calculations show that this occurs on the 31
th
August 2016.
Analysis: The 8
th
house (from birth Lagna) in the D-2 chart is occupied by malefics (Ma, Ju, Mo). The
early adolescent life of the native was one of want, misfortune and eventual residence away from his
place of birth. The punya sahama prediction is that by 31 August 2016 the wealth of Jupiter, benefic
Venus and Mercury in the 9th house from radical Lagna, is house of luck and fortune and cause for
poorvapunya, or effects of good sanchita (seed) karma, taking fruition as kriyamana (future) karma.
These karmas will be expressed by intelligence, spiritual knowledge, devotion, japa of mantras,
authority/power, fame, etc. So all the physical activites has the potent life.

Also from table on page 10, Jupiter in the 5
th
house from radical Moon gives prosperity by this date.











Transit (D-1)
10
Example for (2) :



In the 2
nd
part of above two-part principles, the D-2 transit search of the rasi chart (D-1) for the Punya
Sahama point as by way of example, gives the potential in principle (1) now revealed as a realty in
principle (2) during the period 31 August 2016. A view of the chart reveals why this is so. Jupiter and
Venus along with Mercury give wealth, luxuries and knowledge while salvation and livng away from
birth place are represented by Ketu and Rahu, all in the 3
rd
house from radical Moon. Travels,
expenditure on house and vehicle and communication are indicated by this house during 2016. the 4
th

house results should also be noted : vehicles, land, immovable property, relatives, wealth, comforts
and pleasures. However, the effects from planets from radial Moon sign on page 10 should also be
noted in particular, Jupiter and Saturn; they are obstructions in work and stomach troubles.

Ashtaka Varga

Influence of transiting planets have to be understood only from the astaka varga of the natal Moon and
of the planet concerned. If we ignore the two asktaka vargas (of the natal Moon and the concerned
planet), the transit influences do not come out accurately. The luminaries and planets transit all the
twelve signs in a sequence. Their placement from the natal Moon, natal lagna and themselves gives
varying results at different times. These have to be noted carefully. Each planet has such favourable
places from itself, from the natal Moon, and from the five planets. These being eight in number, it is
called Astaka varga. The benefic places are marked in South India by a circle called a bindu. The
favourable bindus come to 337. All the good and bad effects have to be declared with reference of
these eight. Also note which planet contributes a bindu in a sign. Count from the natal lagna and the
concerned planets.
There are two types of reduction or shodhana of the individual planets Astaka varga. They are Trikona
and Ekadhipatya shodhana. The individual planets Astaka varga is the Binna astakvarga chart (BAV)
and the total chart is called the Sarva astakavarga chart (SAV).
After two reductions of the BAV’s the resulting charts are called Samudaya Astaka Varga or Sodhita
(reduced) Astaka Varga. From these reduced charts we find the important Shodhya Pinda chart. This is
found by taking the reduced charts for each planet and multiplying the rasi (signs) from Mesha
onwards by 7, 10, 8, 4, 10, 5, 7, 8, 9, 5, 11, 12. This gives the total Rashi Pinda for each planet in the
birth chart. Then in each planets case consider the planets in signs and multiply them by the planet

multipliers: Sun 5, Chandra 5, Kuja 8, Budha 5, Guru 10, Shukra 7 and Shani 5. This gives the total
Graha Pinda. Add the two pindas together to get the Shodhya Pinda chart of all the 7-planets from a
birth chart.
Note: Most jyotish computer programs give the Sodhya Pinda chart instantly.

Summary:
Transit influences are always related to Ashtakavarga of the natal Mo and of the planet concerned.
• Transit effects are generally reckoned from the natal Mo.
• Each planet transits all the twelve signs. Its influence varies from sign to sign.
• The transit results of Ju and Sa are very powerful.
• Sadesati - Sa transit in 12, 1, and 2 - comes once in thirty years. It is not always harmful.
× If it harms in the first period (0 - 30 years) , it harms only in the third period (= > 60 years ),
not in the second (30 – 60 years) .
× If it harms in the second (30 – 60 years ) it does not harm in the third period ( = > 60 years).

Basic Significators
Mundane astrology
In mundane charts, we can use arudha padas, divisional charts etc, but we have to re-interpret the
significations of various charts, houses and arudha padas judiciously. For example, D-9 may show
relations with other nations and the role played in international polity. D-30 may show internal
disturbances and violence. D-11 may show wars and terrorist activities. D-8 may show unexpected and
sudden external troubles like natural calamities. D-10 may show political activity. D-24 may show
universities, science, technology, arts, research and activities of intelligentsia. Arudha lagna may show
how a nation is perceived in the world. A3 may shows its weapons. A6 may shows its enemies. A7
may show its allies.

Planet Significance

Sun
When we find houses from Sun, we should look at matters related to soul, inherent nature, personality,
will power, expenses for bad causes, significator for the day-born and father. The Sun is seen in Vedic
thought as the buddhi or intellect.

Moon
Houses from Moon show mind, wisdom, peace, happiness, diseases (waning) and mother.

Mars
Houses from Mars show siblings, land and strength.

Mercury
Houses from Mercury stress on business, commerce, profession, friends, karaka for the father in
general and good behavior. In psychology it is the indicator of buddhi (intelligence), mentality,
rationality and power of perception, as well as capacity in communication and speech, thus also
relating to education. Mercury connects one with the communicational mind. Mercury should be
examined along with the Moon and the 4
th
house in rasi.

Jupiter
Houses from Jupiter show the nourishment of body, learning, children, expenses for good causes and
wealth. In psychology Jupiter relates to higher consciousness within the framework of the sadhana’s,
includes Vedhanta philosophy or philosophy in general, and charitable acts. Jupiter connects one with
the soul. Jupiter should be examined along with the 5
th
house in rasi.

Venus
Houses from Venus show marriage, comforts, luxuries, vehicles, truthful speech, eyes, mother for the
day-born, fortune, pilgrimages, expenditure, profit and loss and sexual pleasures.

Saturn
Saturn shows longevity, livelihood, gains, fortune, significator for the night-born, brothers, partner,
fears, sadness, dangers and sorrows.

Rahu
Houses from Rahu show wickedness, emigrating , harsh speech, diseases, snakes, unclean body,
falsehood, gambling, an irreligious person, a sinful woman.

Ketu
Final salvation, renunciation, divine knowledge, prosperity, tapas, doctors, knowledge of Sastras,
diseases of eye, luxury, fortune, grandfather.

Functional Nature of Planets

We learnt that Jupiter, Venus, waxing Moon (Waning Moon is from the 8
th
day of dark fort-night, or
asthami Krishna Paksa, to 7
th
day bright fort-night, or saptami Sukla Paksa) of and well-associated
Mercury are natural benefics. We learnt that Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, waning Moon and ill-
associated Mercury are natural malefics. In addition, we have the concept of functional benefics and
functional malefics.

The lords of trines from lagna are functional benefics {1, 5, 9}. The lords of the papasthana houses {
3rd, 6th and 11
th
} are functional malefics. These Papasthana Bhavas -houses {3, 6, 11}- are malefic
when occupied by benefics and this is how planets become functional malefics in these houses. If
occupied by malefics they bring about favourable results.
The lord of a quadrant is a functional malefic if he is a natural benefic and functionally neutral if he is
a natural malefic. The lords of 2nd, 8th and 12th are functionally neutral. Of these, the 8th house is
more malefic than the other two.

Planet owning a quadrant and a trine becomes a yogakaraka (excellent planet).

In the case of planets owning two rasis, we need to judiciously combine the two indications. The list of
yogakarakas, functional benefics, functional neutrals and functional malefics for each lagna is given in
table . Moon is not listed for movable rasis, because his functional nature depends on whether he is
waxing or waning. Waxing Moon is a natural benefic and he becomes a functional malefic with
quadrant ownership. Waning Moon, on the other hand, is a natural malefic and quadrant ownership
makes him functionally neutral.

A functional benefic is a favorable planet in a chart. Placement of a functional benefic in quadrants
(sustenance) and trines (prosperity) brings good results. Placement of a functional malefic in these
houses is not good, unless it is very strong. A functional malefic placed in the 3rd house and dusthanas
(6th, 8th and 12th houses) brings good results, by spoiling the significations of the bad houses.

A planet in a bhava-sandhi, is the point when one house ends and another begins, is powerless.






Summary
The lords of trines from Lagna are functional benefics { 1, 5, 9 }.
The lord of the 8
th
house from a Bhava, the lord of the 22
nd
Drekkana from that cusp, and
those situated in the 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
houses (= Dusthana houses) from that Bhava are
likely to give malefic results as far as that Bhava (the dasa period) is concerned.
The lords of a Kendra (=1, 4, 7, 10 houses) is a Functional Malefic if he is a natural
benefic and Functionally Neutral if he is a natural malefic.
The lords of the papasthana houses (=3, 6, 11) are Functional Malefics. Benefic planets in
the papasthana houses become Functional Malefics. Malefic planets in these houses
become Functional Benefics (they will bring about favourable results).
Benefic planets in the trines and kendras of a bhava will bring about favourable results.
Natural malefic planets (Mars, Sun, Saturn, waning Moon) in these houses is not good,
unless it is very strong (5 bindus or more or greater than the strength of the lords of those
houses.)
Lord of the Lagna- is both lord of a Quadrant and a Trine. It will give good results
irrespective of it’s inherent nature. Planets are thus subservient to the Lagna. If it is not
only the lord of the ascendant, but also of a malefic house like the 6
th
or 8
th
, its character
of a benefic remains because of its ownership of the 1
st
.

If a planet aspects or conjoins or owns HL and lagna, it becomes a yogada (giver of yoga) in money
matters. If a planet aspects or conjoins or owns GL and lagna, it becomes a yogada in the matters of
power and authority. Irrespective of their functional nature, planets that become yogada bring
goodluck. Similarly, planets involved in important yogas also bring good luck.

We should consider the inherent nature and the functional nature of planets. Whether a planet is a
natural benefic or a natural malefic is analogous to whether a person is inherently good or bad.
Whether a planet is a functional benefic or a functional malefic is analogous to whether a person does
good or bad to one. Just as a nice person may harm one and a bad person may do good, natural
benefics can become functional malefics and natural malefics can become functional benefics.










20
Baadhakas

For a house falling in a movable/fixed/dual rasi, the 11th/9th/7th house (respectively) from there
becomes baadhaka sthaana (troubling spot). Its lord is called a “baadhaka” (troublemaker) for the
original house. The list of baadhaka sthaanas and baadhakas corresponding to each rasi is given in
Table 11.

For example, suppose lagna in someone’s D-10 is in Ge. Then Jupiter is baadhaka for lagna. The
periods of Jupiter and planets in Sg can create some obstructions and troubles in career. Let us take
another house. Aq is the 9th house and the 9th house in D-10 shows the guidance one gets in one’s
career. It can show manager and elders giving guidance. Baadhaka sthana for Aq is Li. So the periods
of Venus and occupants of Li can create some troubles related to the guidance one gets. There may be
some troubles related to manager. Thus we can consider baadhaka from every house and arudha pada
in every divisional chart.

Timing with Transits

Transits and Ashtakavarga in Examples:
Though one of the purposes of ashtakavarga is to assess the strength of planets and houses in natal
charts, its most important purpose is the interpretation of transits. Just as we look at the house
occupied by a transit planet with respect to natal Moon and natal lagna, we can look at the houses
occupied by a transit planet with respect to all the eight references used in ashtakavarga. Transit
planets Sani and Guru give most powerful effects.

If a planet is benefic in its transit rasi with respect to 5 or more natal references, out of eight, then it
will produce good results. If a planet is benefic in its transit rasi with respect to 3 or less natal
references, out of eight, then it will produce bad results. Of course, the exact nature of the good or bad
results given by a planet depend on its natural significations and its significations in the natal chart.

To see this, we look at the number of rekhas in the transit rasi in the transiting planet’s BAV
(Binnastakavarga=Individual Planets Astakavarga). If, for example, Saturn’s BAV of the natal rasi
chart has 5 rekhas in Ta, then that means that Saturn is benefic with respect to 5 out of 8 natal
references in Ta. So he produces good results when he transits Taurus. The same logic can be extended
to the divisional charts. If Jupiter has 8 rekhas in Ar in natal D-10 chart, then his transit in Aries in rasi
chart invariably brings excellent results in career. The matters that benefit depend on Jupiter’s
placement and ownership in the natal D-10 chart. Basically, Jupiter’s rasi transit in Aries activates the
manifestation of Jovian energy at the physical level in Aries. If Jupiter has many rekhas in his D-10
BAV, it shows that Jovian energy in Aries goes well with most sources of energy in D-10 and thus it
can have a significant impact on a native’s career.

A planet with 6 or 7 bindus or rekhas in its transit rasi in its BAV invariably brings excellent results. A
planet with 1 or 0 bindus in its transit rasi in its BAV invariably brings very poor results.
Bhinnashtakavarga (BAV) - Individual Planets Ashtaka Varga
8- Outstanding
7-Acquisition of kingdom (property) or high office –CEO etc. (Excellent)
6- Gain of wealth or property (Very Good)
5-Good
4-Accomplishment of the object (Average)
3-Fear (Poor)
2-Expenditure (Bad)
1-Destruction or loss
0-Catastrophic











22
Kakshya For Closer Timing
Kakshya is used to pinpoint the exact timing of an event using the transits through the signs/houses. If
Saturn is transiting a sign that has high (8) points/bindus, then you will want to narrow it down to the
exact month within that 2 ½ year period the good results will take place; noting that Saturn remains in
a sign for 2 ½ years. In figuring the Prastarchakra (table for each planet) each sign receives benefic
points from the 7 planets and the ascendant. Therefore there are divisions of 8 parts to a 30-degree
sign. Each division is called a kakshya and is assigned a ruler. Each kakshya is approximately 3 ¾
degrees. From the beginning of a sign they start with Saturn the slowest moving planet, and continue
on down to the fastest moving planet ending with the ascendant. The order for all the signs are the
same:
1.Saturn, 2. Jupiter, 3. Mars, 4. Sun, 5. Venus, 6. Mercury, 7. Moon, 8. Ascendant.
The number of bindus/points in a sign, (Bhinnashtak) is the sum total of single bindus/points
contributed by each planet. If a planet has contributed a point/bindu to Saturn’s Bhinnashtak (totals)
then Saturn will produce a good result while passing through the Kakshya of the planet that
contributed a bindu/point.

The transits through kakshyas applies to all the planets, but this application is more useful for the
slower moving planets. The average time a planet will transit a kakshya (3 ¾ degrees) is listed,
retrograde motion can cause this to vary.
Saturn: 112 days
Jupiter: 45 days
Mars: 7.1 days
Sun: 3.8 days
Venus: 2.3 days
Mercury
Moon: 6.8 hours
Ascendant
Rahu/Ketu: 70.8 days
Principles of Kakshya Application
1. The karakas or indications for that planet: Sun-Father, Moon-mother, Mars-brothers, etc.
2. House the transit is transiting from Ascendant
3. Location from the kakshyas lord’s natal position to the planet in transit :
The number of houses from the natal planet to the transiting planet will give the results of the house that the
number relates to. Ex. 2 houses away-2
nd
house matters, 3 houses away- 3
rd
house matters etc.

Example: If it is nine signs away it will give 9
th
house qualities such as luck and fortune. If transiting
Saturn is in Sagittarius in the 6th kakshya of Mercury [Mercury is the 6
th
planet in the above order
and the 6
th
kakshya is 22.5/3.75=6 degrees as Sa is 22.5 degree longitude into Saggitarius], and
Mercury has contributed a bindu/point to the sign Sagittarius this time will be a fortunate or lucky
time. This is due in part to the 9
th
house influence since Mercury is natally in Aries and the sign
Saturn is transiting is Sagittarius; natal Mercury is nine signs away from transiting Saturn giving 9
th

house results viz. fortune and luck.
Goto: Example 1.


23
Important Points
The ashtakavarga points cannot give results that are not promised in the natal chart. Also the transits
cannot produce fabulous results if the dashas of that time do not condone it.
Ashtakavarga is for finely tuning the transits of the planets through the signs/houses. The primary
importance of ashtakavarga is attributed to the house/sign the planet is located, lordship is secondary.
A planet influences the house/sign to the degree that planet has contributed to that house in its own
ashtakavarga (BAV).



Sadhe Sati
During this period that Saturn is approaching the Moon, either 12
th
, 1
st
or 2
nd
from the natal Moon
when Saturn enters a kakshya of a planet that has contributed a point to Saturn’s ashtakavarga the
period will be favorable otherwise it will not. If the sarvastakavarga points (SAV) are high above 33
the results will be good.
Goto: Example 2.

Dasha
Find the kakshya occupied by the dasha lord in the natal chart D-1. If the kakshya lord has contributed
a bindu/point to the dasha lord’s ashtakavarga in the sign occupied by the lord in the natal chart, then it
will produce good in this entire period.
Look to the dasha lord’s transit through the kakshya and if that planet has contributed a bindu/point in the sign
being transited from the natal chart there will be a good event.
Goto : Example 3.


SAV - Sarvashtakavarga (Samudaaya Ashtakavarga)

In addition to looking at the transit planet’s natal BAV, we should also look at the natal SAV –
Samudaaya Ashtakavarga. If, for example, SAV has 40 bindus in Pisces, then it means that Pisces is
very strong in the chart. Planets transiting in Pisces, tend to give good results irrespective of their
strength. Of course, if a planet with 6 bindus in Pi in its own BAV and a planet with 2 bindus in Pi in
its own BAV are transiting Pi, the former planet will produce better results than the latter planet.
Bindus in the individual BAVs of planets also matter, but SAV will dominate over the BAVs if it has
too many or too few bindus.
Planets transiting in rasis with more than 28 bindu in SAV usually bring favorable results. Planets
transiting in rasis with less than 25 bindus in SAV usually bring unfavorable results, e.g. danger or
sorrow, the intensity proportional to the no. bindus.
Timing with Sodhya Pindas
Parasara taught some techniques of timing events based on sodhya pindas. We can take the number of
rekhas or bindus in any house from a planet and multiply the count with the planet’s sodhya pinda. We
can get a nakshatra from that product by dividing it with 27, taking the remainder and counting
nakshatras from Aswini. Benefics and malefics transiting in the nakshatra will give good or bad results
(respectively) relating to the original house. Especially Saturn’s transit is important. Saturn’s
transit in the nakshatra corresponding to a particular house makes the signified matters suffer.
Goto: Example 4

24
Jupiter’s transit is beneficial and important. Some people also take the 10th or 19th nakshatra
from the nakshtra found above. A nakshatra and the 10th and 19th nakshatras from it are owned by the
same planet under Vimsottari dasa scheme and they go together.
We can also find a rasi by dividing the product with 12 instead of 27 and counting rasis from Aries.
Saturn’s transit in the resultant rasi brings misfortune relating to the original house. However,
nakshatras are more important.


When we want to time events relating to a particular matter, we should first fix the relevant planet.
Then we should fix the relevant house. We should then find the number of rekhas or bindus in that
house from that planet in that planet’s BAV. We should multiply it by the sodhya pinda of the planet
(also called yoga pinda). By dividing the product with 27 or 12 and taking the remainder, we should
find the associated nakshatra or rasi. Then we can time key events based on the transits in that
nakshatra and rasi.

For example, suppose we want to time the good and bad periods of a native’s father. Father should be
seen from Sun and the 9th house. We can take Sun’s BAV and find the number of bindus in the 9th
house from Sun; the 9
th
house is chosen because one of its significance is righteousness, fortune, luck.
Suppose Sun is in Aq. Suppose Sun’s BAV contains 5 bindus in Li (the 9th from Aq). Suppose Sun’s
sodhya pinda is 86. Multiplying 86 with 5, we get 430. If we divide 430 by 27, the quotient is 15 and
the remainder is 25. The 25th constellation is Poorvabhadrapada. So Saturn’s transit in
Poorvabhadrapada is bad for father and Jupiter’s transit in the same nakshatra is good. Now let us find
the rasi. By dividing 430 by 12, we get a quotient of 35 and a remainder of 10. So Saturn’s transit in
Cp (the 10th rasi of the zodiac from Aries) is bad for father and Jupiter’s transit in Cp is good.

Taras (Stars)
By Jyotisha Guru P.V.R. Narasimha Rao
Basic Tara Classification
We can count constellations from the constellation of natal Moon to the constellation occupied by a
planet in transit. Suppose natal Moon is in Makha and transit Moon is in Swaati. Counting
constellations from Makha, we get (1) Maksha, (2) Poorva Phalguni, (3) Uttara Phalguni, (4) Hasta,
(5) Chitra and (6) Swaati. So Swaati is the 6th constellation from natal Moon’s constellation. From
table 15 the 6
th
is in the group:
{6th, 15th, 24
th
, Saadhana Tara, Achievement (good) }; thus this transit is good for initiating an event,
at this time, during the Moon’s transit of Swaati, given the birth chart.

Different constellations from the constellation of natal Moon stand for different things, as shown in
Table 15. If a planet is in a bad tara in its transit, it cannot give its full results. If dasa lord and
antardasa lord as per Vimsottari dasa are in bad taras, bad results can be expected.

launched, transit Moon should not be in a bad constellation with respect to the natal Moon’s
constellation.

Murthis (Forms/Idols)
To judge the results given by a planet during its transit in a particular rasi, find exactly when the planet
enters the rasi. Find the house occupied by transit Moon at that time with respect to his own (Moon’s)
natal position. Based on the house, we say that the planet is a golden or silver or copper or iron form
during its transit in the rasi. The list of houses and murthis is given in Table 13.

circumstances:-
If a planet yielding adverse effects is aspected by a benefic, his evil effects are cancelled.
A benefic planet is deprived of his beneficial effects if he is aspected by a malefic.
A planet loses his capability to do good if he is aspected by an inimical planet or planets.

Rasi Gochara Vedha (Sign Transit Obstructions)

When a planet is transiting in a favorable house from natal Moon, it may be “obstructed” by another
planet transiting in the vedha sthana (house of obstruction). In that case, the planet cannot give its
good results. The vedha sthaanas of all good transits of all planets are listed in Table 14.

Table 14: Vedha Sthaanas
Transiting planet Auspicious houses from natal Moon (Corresponding vedha sthanas in parantheses)
Sun 3 (9), 6 (12), 10 (4), 11 (5)
Moon 1 (5), 3 (9), 6 (12), 7 (2), 10 (4), 11 (8)
Mars 3 (12), 6 (9), 11 (5)
Mercury 2 (5), 4 (3), 6 (9), 8 (1), 10 (8), 11 (12)
Jupiter 2 (12), 5 (4), 7 (3), 9 (10), 11 (8)
Venus 1 (8), 2 (7), 3 (1), 4 (10), 5 (9), 8 (5), 9 (11), 11 (6), 12 (3)
Saturn 3 (12), 6 (9), 11 (5)

Vedha points: this is an obstruction. If the Su is in the 11
th
it does good. But if at the same time there
is a planet in the 5
th
, its capacity to do good is obstructed.
• For the Su there is no vedha from Sa and vice-versa.
• Me does not cause vedha to the Mo.
Vedha - Points of Obstruction – summary:
Planets, when transiting from the natal moon, give good and bad results as per the normal rules of transits.
However, sometimes it so happens that a planet transiting a favorable house from the natal moon, is unable to
give its normal good results due to obstructions of some other transiting planets in particular positions from the
natal moon.
For example, in the case of the sun, the sun gives you good results in the 3rd, 6th, 10th or 11th houses from the
natal moon. However, should there be a Vedha taking place for the sun, then the sun is not able to give good
results. Therefore, the points of obstruction for the sun’s favorable result is 9th, 12th, 4th, and 5th; respectively.
Therefore, when the Sun is passing through a favorable point say, 3rd house from the natal moon, if at the same
time any other planet is passing through the 9th house from the natal moon, then the expected good result of the
sun may not come true. Vedha (obstruction) points for each planet are opposite the corresponding number of
good points shown in the table.
The table works backwards in a converse fashion. The numbers above the line are houses of benefic transits of
the planet and the numbers below the line correspond as mentioned above. We can also look at the numbers
below the line as houses of malefic transits of the planet, and the corresponding numbers above the line
represent the points of obstruction to the malefic transits. Conversely, if the sun is passing through the 9th house
and at the same time, there is a planet in the 3rd house (all from the natal moon), the negative result of the sun is
obstructed, thereby canceling out the negative results.
There are two very important exceptions to the rules here. The transit relationship between the Sun and
29
Saturn, and the transit relationship between the Moon and Mercury are not applicable to this Vedha
table of obstructions.
Understanding Vedha points gives insight into expected results due to planets transiting good houses unable to
show which is due to obstruction houses being occupied by other planets at the same time.

Special Nakshatras/Taras

There are a few special nakshatras for each person:

· The constellation occupied by natal Moon is called Janma nakshatra. Janma means “birth”
and this nakshatra shows general well-being.
· The 10th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Karma nakshatra. Karma means
“profession” and this nakshatra shows profession and workplace.
· The 18th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Saamudaayika nakshatra.
Saamudaayika roughly means “related to a crowd” and this nakshatra shows group activities.

· The 16th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Sanghaatika nakshatra. Sanghaatika
roughly means “belonging to group” and this nakshatra shows group/social activities.
· The 4th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Jaati nakshatra. Jaati roughly means
“community” and this nakshatra shows one’s community. To be more correct, one’s jaati
shows people who belong to the same class, nature and profession.
· The 7th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Naidhana nakshatra. Naidhana means
“death” and this nakshatra shows death and suffering.

· The 12th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Desa nakshatra. Desa means “country”
and this nakshatra shows one’s country.
· The 13th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Abhisheka nakshatra. Abhisheka means
“coronation” and this nakshatra shows power and authority. This is also called Raajya
nakshatra (kingdom).
· The 19th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Aadhaana nakshatra. Aadhaana means
“epoch/conception” and this nakshatra shows well-being of family.

· The 22th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Vainaasika/Vinaasana nakshatra.
Vainaasika means “destructive” and this nakshatra shows one’s destruction.
· The 25th constellation from janma nakshatra is called Maanasa nakshatra. Maanasa means
“mind” and this nakshatra shows one’s mental state.

Benefics or malefics situated in these constellations in their transit bring good or bad results related to
the area covered by the nakshatra. However, it should be kept in mind that the results will be with
respect to the native. For example, malefics transiting in desa nakshatra may not ruin one’s country.
After all, any country has almost the same number of people with desa nakshatra in each constellation.
When many malefics are transiting in desa nakshatra, one may be driven away from one’s country or
start hating one’s country. Similarly, many malefics transiting in jaati nakshatra may alienate one from
one’s community. Many benefics transiting in karma nakshatra may give success at workplace. This
is how these special nakshatras should be used. Sometimes, using these nakshtras gives special
insights that cannot be gained by looking at any divisional chart.

Sarvatobhadra Chakra

From Jyotisha Guru Narasimha Rao-

Definition: Sarvatah means “everywhere” or “entirely”. Bhadra means “auspicious” or “well”.
Sarvatobhadra chakra is a chart that shows all-round well-being and all kinds of auspicious and
inauspicious results.
There are 9 x 9 = 81 squares in the chart. Middle 7 squares on the outer borders contains 7 nakshatras
each. Abhijit (the last quarter of Uttarashadha) is included among the nakshatras. The innermost 5
squares contains weekdays and tithis (lunar days). The notation regarding tithis is:
(1) The entry Nanda represents 1st, 6th, 11th, 16th, 21st and 26th tithis.
(2) The entry Bhadra represents 2nd, 7th, 12th, 17th, 22nd and 27th tithis.
(3) The entry Jaya represents 3rd, 8th, 13th, 18th, 23rd and 28th tithis.
(4) The entry Rikta represents 4th, 9th, 14th, 19th, 24th and 29th tithis.
(5) The entry Poorna represents 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th and 30th tithis.
Rasis are also included in the chart. Some consonants are listed in the squres just inside the border
squares. All the squares lying on diagonals of the chart, except the central square of the chart, contain
vowels. There are 16 vowels and 20 consonants that are covered. We see that 16 (vowels) + 20
(consonants) + 12 (rasis) + 28 (nakshtras) + 5 (tithis and weekdays) = 81.
Vedha: When a planet occupies a nakshatra, it causes vedha (obstruction) on the contents of the
squares along 3 lines. We can draw one vertical or horizontal line and two crossward lines starting at
the nakshatra. Contents of the squares on the lines have vedha from the planet.

Example : Let us say Saturn is in Punarvasu. We see that Punarvasu is on the eastern border.
Drawing a horizontal line to the west from it, we see that the consonant h, rasi Cn, vowel au, tithis
Bhadra (2nd, 7th, 12th, 17th, 22nd and 27th), weekdays Monday and Wednesday, vowel am, rasi Sc,
consonant y and constellation Moola are on this line. So Saturn in Punarvasu causes vedha on all
these.
Drawing a crossward line to the northwest from it, we see that the consonant k, rasis Ta and Ar,
consonant d and constellation Poorva Bhadrapada are on this line. So Saturn in Punarvasu causes
vedha on all these.
Drawing a crossward line to the southwest from it, we see that the consonant d (alveolar), consonant m
and constellation Uttara Phalguni are on this line. So Saturn in Punarvasu causes vedha on all these.

There are some special principles:
(1) A planet in the first quarter of Krittika or the last quarter of Bharani has vedha on the vowel
“a” which is in the northeastern corner. A similar thing applies to all the vowels in corners.
(2) If an vowel has vedha, its similar vowel (e.g. a and aa, i and ee, u and uu) also has vedha from
the same planet.
(3) Some consonants are not covered in this chart. Planets in Ardra have vedha on g, chh and ng
(nasal). Planets in Hasta have vedha on h, n (alveolar) and th (alveolar). Planets in Poorvashadha have
vedha on dh (dental), ph and dh (alveolar). Planets in Uttara Bhadrapada have vedha on th (dental), jh
and nch (nasal).
(4) If a planet has vedha on one of the following pairs of consonants, it has vedha on the other one
too: b & v; s & sh (palatal); kh & sh (alveolar); j & y; ng & tr.






33
Using Sarvatobhadra Chakra: We should find the following in the natal chart:
(1) the constellation occupied by Moon or any special tara
(2) the rasi occupied by lagna or any house of interest
(3) the first/prominent consonant and vowel in the native’s name
(4) the tithi of birth (janma tithi) or a special tithi
(5) the weekday of birth (janma vaara)

We should study the vedha caused on these by different planets in their transit. Vedha by benefics
(Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus) is favorable and vedha by malefics (Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and
Ketu) is unfavorable. If several transiting benefics have simultaneous vedha on several natal points
listed above, then good results may be expected. Malefics, on the other hand, give bad results.

In addition to considering janma nakshatra, we can consider special nakshatras related to the matter of
interest. Suppose we want to find the transit results related to career. Then we can take karma
nakshatra of natal chart [take the planets position in the D-10 chart and enter them in the
Sarvatobhadra chart. See the vedhas on them for that day in yiur career] and see the vedhas on it in
transit chart.

Similarly, we can take the tithi corresponding to the matter of interest. For example, we can take
“karma tithi” (lunar day of profession) instead of janma tithi when finding transit results related to
career.

Karma tithi is a little different from normal tithi. To find karma tithi, we multiply the difference
between Moon’s longitude and Sun’s longitude with 10 and reduce the product to a value between 0º
and 360º (by adding or subtracting multiples of 360º). We divide it by 12 and add 1 to the quotient.
That gives a number between 1 and 30 [the lunar day] and that represents “karma tithi”. Karma tithi
changes 10 times as fast as normal tithi. Similarly “dhana tithi” (lunar day of wealth) changes twice as
fast as normal tithi. We can find a tithi for several matters. The tithi relevant to the matter of interest
[the divisional charts from D-2 to D-60 ] should be used when finding vedha of transiting planets on
tithis (Nanda, Bhadra, Jaya, Rikta and Poorna).
Let us take an example. If the 10th house, karma nakshatra [D-10 chart], karma tithi [the lunar day of
auspicious career growth] and janma vaara all have the vedha of a couple of transiting benefics, then
some good developments may take place in the native’s career. If they have the vedha of a couple of
malefics (instead of benefics), then we can expect setbacks in the native’s career. In this manner, we
study the impact of transits on important tithis, janma vaara, important nakshatras and important
houses in natal chart. If just one natal reference has vedha from just one planet, we cannot make any
predictions. But, if 2-3 natal reference have vedha from a couple of benefic/malefic transit
planets, then we can be more confident. However, a prediction should be made only if dasas and
Tajaka charts also show an event.

Examples

(1) - Kakshya Timing for Events :
Reference: 1. Saturn, 2. Jupiter, 3. Mars, 4. Sun, 5. Venus, 6.
Mercury, 7. Moon, 8. Ascendant; Transit chart follows:
Saturn is transiting 7 42’ Leo on 30 April 2008 in the D-1 transit
chart (right). This is the 2nd Kakshya viz. 7.70/3.75 = 2 ; which
is Jupiter who is in natal D-1 chart in Taurus, 4 houses away (see
natal chart below); 4th house signification is: House, vehicles,
property, Ed. Institutions, well-being, etc. Going to the
Ashtakavarga chart (BAV) Jupiter contributed 5 bindus to the
transit house, Simha. The dasa period is Me/Ve 3/10/2008 to
7/4/2011 and Mercury and Venus are both benefics. Saturns
transit will produce good 4
th
house results during this Dasa
period. The SAV for Simha is 25.
Jupiter is transiting 28 16’ Dhanus; Kakshya is 28.26/3.75= 7 or
the Moon. In the transit natal chart the Moon is in Taurus - 6
houses away from Sagittarius. The 6
th
house significance is :
troubles, instability, death, debts, disease etc. What has Moon
contributed to the transiting house Dhanus? In the BAV of Moon
to Dhanus there are 6 bindus; 6
th
house effects can take place as
Dasa of Mercury (all shown above) is favourable.

(2) - Sadhe Sati : In transit chart below right, Saturn is 12
th
to
the radical Moon as he enters Aries 0:0 in below chart. (radical
Moon is 18:57 Taurus). For 7 ½ years the native starting in 17
April 1998 will be in Sadhe Sati i.e until Saturn exits Gemini
the 3
rd
sign: 2005-05-26. This period was extremely bad for the
native. There was business loss’s and quarrels with the family.

(3) - Dasha Karaka for a Planet:
The Dasa lord for the above transit chart was found to be
Mercury. The kakshya for Mercury in rasi chart (middle right)
is 2:09 or 2.15/3.75=0.5733 or 1= Saturn, 11 houses away.
Saturn contributes 3 bindus to the sign of Mercury.The period
of Me/Sa 1/09/2019 will be good for 11
th
house variables:gains
39
(4) - Sodhya Pinda Event Timing:
Chose the event you want to test for a good or bad result e.g. {event= planet-significance and house-
significance}; viz. marriage= Jupiter and 7
th
house, luck for father= Sun and 9
th
house, career= planet
and 10
th
house, luxuries = Venus and 11
th
house, communications= Mercury and 3
rd
house etc.
• Choose the event you want to test.
• Look at the transit chart for that day.
• Find the Sodhya Pinda for that event-planet and look to see in the transit chart if Saturn or
Jupiter or an auspicious planet is transiting the Nakshatra of that event-house.
• Test the event-sign for good or bad (Jupiters transit or Saturns transit of that sign or another
planet of significance to the event).
• The results will be conducive to acceptance or rejection of that day to do a chosen event.
o Example: Suppose one wants to test the 8
th

July, 2009 for looking for a job in the field of
communications. Mercury is the planet for
communications and its sodhya panda is 182.
Mercurys BAV in Kumbha (Aquarius) the 10
th

house for careers is 5 bindus; thus 182*5=910;
dividing by 27= 33; remainder=19. From
Ashwini the 19
th
constellation is Mula (0:00-
13:19 Sag). The Moon transits this nakshatra.
The Moon is the mind which governs
communications and speech and the Moon on
this tithi, Krishna Pratipat, is waxing or
benefic. The result is that this day in
Melbourne, Florida U.S.A. is a good day to
look for a job in this chosen field.
o The event sign is found by dividing the sodhya panda by 12 and taking the remainder. Note
the planet if any which transits that sign. Is it a benefic or a malefic planet?
Dividing 910 / 12 = 75; remainder 10. The 10
th
house from Aries is transited by Rahu.
Rahu could spoil things during the job interview on that day. One must be cautious.

(5) - Taras Timing for Events:
On Thursday 29
th
November 2007 is it a good time to start a
temple building project in the city of Nelspruit, South Africa
given the transit chart on the right ?
Natal Moon is in Taurus-Rohini, transit Moon is in Karka-
Pushya (3:20-16:39 Can), the 5th constellation from Rohini.
From table 15 of the Taras, the constellation from natal Moon
(Rohini) to the transit Moon in Cancer (5 houses away) is
found in the sequence {5th, 14th, 23
rd
} or Pratyak Tara =
Obstacles. This is a bad day to break ground for the new
temple given that his transit Moon is in a bad Muhurta.








40
(6) - Murthis (Forms/Idols) for Labeling Effective Planets:
Although a planet like Saturn and Jupiter transits a sign or house in a transit chart we may ask : How
effective is that planet in bringing about its significance (karaka), what is its strength (bala)? Vedic
astrologers use the Murthi table to gauge the probability that the house results will take place.
Using the transits of example 4 above for Saturn and Jupiter, lets see how strong Saturn and Jupiter
really are:
(a) Using tuhe Muhurta Tool Search for Transit in Jagannatha Hora 7.1) advance Saturn into the rasi
of Simha to be 00:00’. We then note Moons transit house, at that time with respect to the Moons
natal position. The house from natal Moon to the transit Moon is then taken from the above table and
the Murthi of that transiting planet reveals itself.
Thus : At the entry of Saturn into Simha 00:00 , transiting Moon is 16:42 Karka on 15/7/2007. This is
the 3
rd
house from natal Moon and the Murthi is Taamra/Copper-form, unfavourable. This means
Saturn does not give its results.
(b) Advancing Jupiter 00:00 into its rasi of Aquarius on 01/05/2009 transiting Moon is in 12:45 Can.
This is 3rd from natal Moon and the Murthi is Taamra/Copper. Jupiter does not give its results.

(7) - Planet Effects Based on SAV
Note the houses from the natal Moon which contain benefic planets, their effects
become promoted if their SAV is more than 28; from rasi chart Ex. (5) above.

Moon in Taurus Benefic Planets SAV-bindus Effects
4
th
House Saturn 26 Poor
5
th
House Venus 38 Excellent
7
th
House Mercury 22 Very Poor
Mercury’s significance is: stress on business, commerce, profession, friends and good behavior.

(8) – Planets in Special Signs Giving Effects Based on SAV
From Rasi D-1 chart page 39 middle chart, Mars is in his own house Aries but because it ‘s SAV is
27 it cannot promote its results.
(9)-Longevity of the Father
Using the natal chart-1 below of the son. The house of the father is the 9
th
house Taurus from the Sun
in Kanya. The benefic bindus in the 9
th
house Taurus are: 26. Multiply it by the sodhya pinda of the
Sun; 26*180=4680. Divide by 27: 4680/27=173.3333; R=27*0.3333=9, the nakshatra is : Ashlesha
(9
th
from Ashwini). Saturn passing through this nakshatra will bring a bad result to the father. Death
occurs when Saturn transits the trines {1, 5, 9 } i.e; Ashlesha, Hasta, and Anaradha.
















Dates of the Trines of Saturn in Fathers Nakshatra:
a) Ashlesha: 16:40 – 29:59 Cancer
b) Hasta: 10:00-23:19 Virgo
c) Anaradha: 3:20-16:39 Scorpio

Saturn (transits)
a) On 2035/08/17, 15:51:00, Saturn 16:40 Cancer.
Age: 93
Dasa: Ve/Ma
b) On 2039/10/11,11:59:34, Saturn 10:00 Virgo.
Age: 97
Dasa Ve/Ju
c) On 2044/01/14, 6:26:17, Saturn 3:20 Scorpio.
Age: 102
41




















(10)- Longevity of the Mother of the Father
From the son’s chart-1 multiplying the benefic bindus the 4
th
sign of the Binnastakavarga of the Moon
which is 5, by the sodhyapinda of the Moon which is 179 and divide by 27 : 5*179/27=33.1418
R=.1418*27=4.
Thus 4
th
nakshatra from Aswini is Rohini, Pushya, Uttara-Phalguni being the trine nakshatras. The
transit of Saturn in Pushya is shown below. The date when Saturn transited the end of Pushya 16:39
Cancer in 27/04/1977 was close to the date of death. See the chart below for details:

Son
Chart 1
Father
Chart 2
42


11)-Number of Children
From the son’s chart-1 above (13/10/79) The Binnastakavarga of Moon after the trikona and
ekadhipatya reductions are: 6-benefic-3 malefic=3 children. There are two child at the moment.

(12) Death of a Native From the SAV of Saturn (Questionable Method)
The 8
th
house from the Binnashtakavarga lagna of Saturn has 2 bindus. Multiplying this by the
sodhyapinda of Saturn and dividing by 27 gives: 2*196/27=14.5185 R=0.5185*27=14; this is the
nakshatra Chitra. Using the Muhurta Tool and advancing Saturn and then Jupiter the years of
longevity are indicated below:

Saturn: 23:40 Virgo in Chitra – 23/09/2011
Jupiter: 23:40 Virgo in Chitra- 06/12/2016

Note: These figures are to low and this method should be avoided. The method of Sri Mantreswara
using the sons Janma Rasi to find longevity of the parents is applaudable as is his Exit from the World
method. Then there is JaiminiSutra - Sthira Dasa, Trikona Dasa of the Planets; another good method
is Span of Life by Varahamihira given in Brihat Jatak. Examples of these methods are given in the
section on Longevity.

(13) Number of Years of Distress, Danger or Disaster of a Native:
In the fathers chart-2 above, the Ashtakavarga of Saturn the benefic bindus from Saturn to Lagna are:
21 In the Ashtakavarga of Saturn the benefic bindus from Lagna to Saturn are: 4
Thus there are between 4 to 21 years of difficulties.

(14) Transit of Planets in Binnastakavarga Charts:
In the houses which have more benefic bindus than others, for the planets which transit those house’s,
one would expect better results. The dushtana houses {6, 8, 12} from the lagna give only bad results,
and should be discarded.
43
In the transit chart left for 9 June 2009 the planet transits following
this rule that are in the 6th, 8
th
and 12
th
houses from the As are :
Mo and Ju should be rejected as their transit results in these bad
houses cannot give good results. The other planets SAV are: 24
bindus in Aries: Ve/Ma; 32 bindus in Taurus: Me/Su; 22 bindus in
Leo: Sa.
Thus it is expected by Sri Mantreswaras rule that Mercury and Sun
would result in the best event timing for this transit day as they
have the higest bindu score for their transit in the house of Taurus.
This is the 11
th
house from transit Lagna and yields gains. Mercury
the significator of speech and communications and Surya
representing the father and inherent nature could possibly be a day
for speaking to ones father on some important matter. The results
could be auspicious.
RULE: All auspicious functions and ceremonies should be performed during the transits
through the signs which contain greater number of benefic bindus.

(15)- Divisional Chart Analysis:
Given the native chart below, one can judge the strength of the planets in the divisional charts. Using
Sarvastakavarga charts and the Binnestakavarga charts with the individual planets for each divisional
chart the Vedic astrologer can assess the natives chances of achieving the object of each divisional
chart viz. health, wealth, children, career, etc.
Rule: Use the rasi lagna as the reference for each planet and house position in the divisional
charts and not the ascendant lagna of these charts; aspects of planets and signs are normal. The
divisional charts are a mapping over the D-1 chart.

D-1 chart – Rasi :
The Rasi chart gives physical traits and personality when
viewed from the Lagna and Mental propensities when viewed
from the Moon.
The 2
nd
house from Lagna shows among others, wealth, assets
and family. Significant is the deposit of Jupiter there, who is
beyond the aspect of spoiler Rahu. The 10
th
house for
profession and careers contains Saturn but he does not spoil
careers or money making ability because his BAV is only 3
bindus in Scorpio. Jupiter gives good effect to wealth in Pisces
at 6 bindus in a house which has a strength of 26 bindus.
Chandra aspects Pisces and contributes 5 to that house’s
strength and he will along with Ketu give good mental ability.


D-2 chart on Wealth:
The course view of wealth in Rasi is now fine-tuned
in the D-2 chart. The benefic planets Jupiter, Mercury
and Venus contribute 3, 6, 6 bindus respectively in Simha at 30
bindus while Saturn the spoiler is weak. Mars a trine planet
in rasi gives strength to commercially strong Mercury, and the
Moon is obliging at 5 bindus. All these planets in D-2 aspect
the rasi Ascendant. Much wealth can be expected in this
young mans life.


D-1
18/11/1987
12:55:00
44
D-6 chart on Health:
Jupiter and Moon (Body and Mind) contribute 4 bindus
each to Meena, Saturn at 2 bindus is weak. They are in the 2
nd
maraka position from rasi Lagna. Their Dasas can kill during
there periods but their strength is weak, especially Saturn, the
significator of longevity.
From rasi the papasthana houses 6, 8, and 12 are empty of planets
indicating good health.Venus is in Lagna and this means good
healthy ability to have children






D-7 chart on Children:
The significator is Jupiter. In Rasi Jupiter is not in the
5
th
, which signifies children in a males chart. Instead he is in a
Kendra in D-7 and in his own house and as functional malefic at
a strong 6 bindus confirms the natives ability to have children.
But the waning Moon in the 8
th
from D-1 rasi and an aspect on
Jupiter, could create an unhealthy mental state and a small family
may be the result.




D-10 chart on Career:
The 10
th
house in rasi D-1 is ruled by Mars; Mercury the planet of
business is in the rasi lagna. This should assure a good career
except that the BAV of Mercury is only a weak 3. Saturn and
Venus which are in the 10
th
house in rasi are in the 2
nd
commercial
bhava in D-10. He will have a commercial career possibly in the
Government. The Sun also in the 10
th
rasi is in the 6
th
in D-10 a
bad house which could cause him to waiver in his duties if he does
not perform the Gayatri vrata every morning and evening.





Example (16) Sarvatobhadra chart
Sarvatobhadra Principles:
Data:
The natal points from the rasi chart-2 (page 41) above are noted in the following list:
· The janma nakshatra in natal rasi chart is Rohini.
· The natal lagna rasi is Saturn.
· Rasi bhava significances from lagna are to be noted.
· The first prominent vowel in name is v (va).
· The natal tithi of birth is Shukla Ekadashi = Nanda

45
· The natal janma vaara is Tuesday.
· The special nakshatras (e.g. Naidhana which is 7
th
from janma nakshatra and means death or
suffering etc.) are to be noted
Drawing-Line Rules:
· Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn and Venus move in all directions (i.e draw lines: right, straight
or left)
· When the above planets are retrograde then movement is always to the right.
· Rahu and Ketu are always retrograde, movement is always to the right.
· Sun and Moon movement is direct, therefore lines drawn always to the left.

Procedure :
(a) Enter the transit planets into each Savatobhadra chart (Sb) for the following interests:
• daily transit as per request for an event timing.
o Note: daily transit calculation are from the Janma Nakshatra.
• divisional charts (Career; Net Assets; Health; etc) for special interests.
o Note: Divisional chart calculations are from Janma Nakshatra.
(b) Draw the lines from the benefic planets in the Sb charts above and note the good and bad
vedhas.
(c) Draw the lines for the malefic planets as in (b) above.
(d) Two benefic planets or two malific planets must cross a sign, a vowel, a vaara, a tithi etc.,
before a vedha can be taken.
(e) Form the tables of good and bad vedhas:
(f) if there are more than 2-3 vedhas of each good and bad table, make a prediction as per the
point of interest in that SB chart.

• Suppose we want to find if the timing is auspicious for native of chart-2 above for the laying of
a slab for the foundation of a temple being built in Nelspruit, SAFR, at 0900hrs on Friday 7
th

December 2007.

Example (17)

• If the star occupied by the Sun at the time of a transit 13/12/2007 in chart below happens to be the
Vedha star (Naidhana Nakshatra) to the natal star (Janma Nakshatra), there will be apprehension of
danger to life.
• If the Adhana Nakshatra (19
th
from Janma Nakshatra) there will be fear and anxiety.
• If to the Karma Nakshatra (10
th
from Janma Nakshatra) loss of wealth.
• If the Sun in the above position be associated (conjunction within 6-degrees)
with a malefic, death has to be expected.


1. The Vedha star to Janma Nakshatra in Rohini is the 7
th
constellation called Naidhana
Nakshatra and this is Magha. The Sun is in Jyestha so there is no danger to the natives
life on this transit day.
2. The Adhana Nakshatra is the 19
th
from Janma Nakshatra; the 19
th
from Rohini is
Shravana; the Sun is in Jyeshtha, thus no effect to cause fear and anxiety.
3. The 10
th
from Janma Nakshatra is the Karma Nakshatra; this is Hasta, the 10
th
from
Rohini. The Sun is in Jyestha so there is no loss of wealth on this day.
Conclusion: this day appears auspicious for activity, gain of wealth and a healthy mindset.

Example (19)


Note the following Lattas for the transits on a particular chosen day in the chart above:
Forward Latta (count is forward):
12
th
nakshatra from the nakshatra occupied by the Sun is Bharani.
3
rd
nakshatra from the nakshatra occupied by Mars is Pushya.
6
th
nakshatra from the nakshatra occupied by Jupiter is Satabhisha.
8
th
nakshatra from that occupied by Saturn is Jyestha.
Rear Latta (count is backward):
5
th
nakshatra from that occupied by Venus is Purva-Palguni.
7
th
nakshatra from that occupied by Mercury is Uttara-Phalguni.
8
th
nakshatra from that occupied by Rahu is Vishakha.
22
nd
nakshatra from that occupied by the Moon is Ashwini.

Exampla (20)
In the town of Nelspruit South Africa the building of a temple continues on Friday, 14
th
December,
2007. The following are the Lattas for the day of transits in the above chart from Example (19):

The Latta effects of the above are:
o If the janma Nakshatra happens to come as the Latta Star the native will suffer from illness
and mental anxiety:
- the Janma Nakshatra is Rohini from chart-2 and the Latta star is different being the 22
nd

from transit Moon or Ashwini.
o During the Sun’s Latta there will be financial loss in every venture:
- Bharani is the Sun’s Latta. All activities that fall in Bharani will be a loss.
o During the Latta of Rahu there will be grief and unhappiness.
- Vishakha is Rahu’s Latta. All activities that fall in Vishakha will bring grief and
unhappiness.
o There will be death of the native, destruction of kinsmen and fear during the Latta of Jupiter.
- Satabhisha is Jupiter’s Latta. Death to the native will occur when activities are in this
star.
o Quarrels will take place during the Latta of Venus.
o Loss of position may be expected during the Latta of Mercury.
o The native will suffer excessive financial loss during the Latta of the Moon.

Example (21):

Principle :
The most important interactions are those between
(1) a natal divisional chart (D-x) and the transit rasi chart (D-1), and,
(2) the natal rasi chart (D-1) and a transit divisional chart D-x, where D-x is divisional chart of
interest ; x=1(Natal); x=2 (Wealth); x=4 (Net Assets) etc.

(1) shows how innate potential in a particular area of life is influenced at a given time to result in
action at the physical level. This helps us in coarse timing of events.
(2) We can fine-tune the timing of events when the potential at the physical level is transformed into
an event in a particular area of life.

Problem:
· The spouses want to know when will there be children in the marriage.
· The husband wants to know their net assets at a future date

From Rshis Parasara, Saravali and Jaimini the following is true for children;









Analysis :


(1) The wife (B.B.) natal divisional chart for children (D-7) is above left. Her Rasi chart is right and
has her Ascendant in Taurus. Her transit rasi chart for Jupiter 0:0 degrees in the 9
th
house Makara
from her birth Lagna is below:
Note- the date is : 09/12/2008 and the time is : 17:46:38 the height of her potential fertility.




Children, childlessness, and adoption are found within the lords of 2, 5, and 11 houses from
the As. Also in the case of women the 9
th
house has to be considered – this is the house of
children for women if Ju is positied there. The 5
th
house is the house of children for men
– if Ju is also posited there. We also have to consider the lord of Lagna as well as Ju. The
weakness of these houses can bring about the loss or denial of children.
51













Principle (1)
Is the 9
th
house, signifying children for women, strong? Note the ashtakavarga of the house’s SAV
(Sarvashtakavarga). It is 35 bindus a very strong house. What is Jupiter contribution to that score ? It is a 7 out of
8 bindus in the BAV-transit D-1 chart. This is also very strong, but Venus is a weak 4 bindus. Rahu and Venus is
in a bad conjunction and the Vimshottari Dasa is MD: Rahu: 10/12/2007- 10/12/2025 and antardasa Rahu/Rahu :
10/12/2007 – 23/08/2010 is a bad period as Rahu destroys health, or in this case fertility. Nevertheless a strong
Jupiter and a strong house in the 9
th
will bear her children in this maximum period of fertility; but prayers to Rahu
in the Navagraha temple are needed.

Principle (2)
The natal rasi chart (D-1) and a transit divisional chart D-7 is found from the Jh 7.4 Program Search
(www.vedicastrologer.org/jh) for Transit of Jupiter 0:0 degrees into the 9
th
house from the lagna of this chart;
the Lagna is in Taurus so Jupiter is to transit Capricorn. This gives the same date and time 9/12/ 2008 : 17:46:38
because it is the same zodiac and in this case the Ascendant in the transit divisional chart of D-7 remained the
same.
Analysis
Jupiter in the 9th is as before in principle (1). Only the SAV and BAV charts have changed strength in principle
(2). The house occupied by the significator of children Jupiter is only 21 bindus strong, but Jupiter is a strong 5
bindus in this house. As before Rahu is the spoiler of passion, conjunct with Venus. The Dasa periods are the
same and in this fine timing of her events Rahu must still be propitiated.













Note: the devotee is expecting her first child during the year 2009!

Analysis
Principle (1) is course timing of events and give potential results.
Principle (2) is fine timing of events and give predictable actual
results.
The husband’s charts show that he is not compatable with the
wife’s fertility periods as his date of maximum fertility in 2017.
His Jupiters BAV in the 5
th
however is a strong 6 bindus and the
SAV of that house is a good 28 bindus. Note in rasi his Jupiter is
in the 10
th
house of careers. His incessant work, even taken home,
is perhaps unbalancing his doshas where his sukra dhatu is
compromised. This passion is evident by Venus aspect of Jupiter
from the 7th in rasi. Jupiter in the 8
th
from D-7 lagna shows
incapacity for children and ailments. The late date of 2017
however can be changed if he changes his domestic life style.
Worship is key to early success. Say the Abhilasastaka Mantra.

Remedial Measures :
Given the diagnosis of the above and the fertility problem’s our ancients have prescribed the aushadha
for their condition of childlessness- mani, mantra and medicine:
· Mani:
Rahu
Hessonite (Gomedh) 6 ratis in silver on the ring finger
· Say thrice daily the Abhilasastaka Mantra and Purusha Sukta, for one-year.
· Rice mixed with black gram and Kalhara flowers at the feet of Rahu in the Navagraha temple.
· A child will be conceived before his late period and near or soon after her time as noted above
in her chart.

Principle:

Jupiter the planet of wealth etc. and Mercury the planet of commerce,
business etc. are the major grahas that have the effect on the point of
interest divisional chart D-4 viz. Assets and Wealth. When Guru
aspects Budha the native can expect from that period on to have good
assets, the building-up to wealth. The 9
th
house from the ascendant is
fortune, the 10
th
is exports and foreign trade. When Mercury is there
check when Jupiter aspects Mercury (from 1
st
, 5
th
, 7
th
and 9
th
) and the
Astakavarga strength of the house. See if the Dasa period is favourable
at this time.

Male-Spouse:
In the Muhurtha chart above for 2008-07-06, Jupiter aspects Mercury from the 7
th
in Saggitarius. And
can expect to have some assets and wealth. There are no malefic planets in the transit Muhurtha chart
to destroy Mercury’s position. The Ashtakavarga strength where Mercury is depositied is 31 bindus-
very strong, but Mercury only contributes 4 out of 8 bindus to that total. Mercury yields moderate
strength to commerce, while Jupiter is in a strong house of 29 bindus and contributes a strong 5
bindus out of 8 to this bhava. Thus it can be predicted that the Muhurta date of 2008-07-06 is a good
starting period for wealth and accumulation of assets. However in the Dasa peiod of Moon/Rahu,
Rahu is the enemy of the Moon and this period ends on 2009-10-10. The Moon is the ‘mind’ and Rahu
is the spoiler. Caution is advised until the period ends. Poor decisions influenced during this period
could destroy wealth. One must be on guard with ones expenses. The next Moon/Jupiter period starts
thereafter. These are two powerful planets which yield much wealth and resulting accumulation of
assets.

Both his parents were diabetics. He has already lost a large toe from his foot during 2007. What is

Data-Base :

Rahu and Ketu are the nodal points of the Moon. As nodal points they are astronomical facts, not
shadows, one is the enemy of the other since Ketu as the giver of salvation is a benefic, Rahu should
be a malefic. In Jaimini’s system Ketu is auspicious. Parashara is better.
Ra is bad in {8, 12 }. Excepting in Saturns period in the other major periods he gives mixed results.
Both Jamini and Parashara state :
Aquarius is owned jointly by Saturn and Rahu. Mantreshwara staes that the results given by Rahu are
similar to those given by Shani. They are integrally related to each other, and this relationship is
astronomically presented as their uniform constant distance of 180-degrees. They are bound up with
Chandra and the Moon is dependant on the Earth. Consequently, the earth-borns have to take into
consideration the influence of Chandra and also the influences of these two nodes

The following tables are for the planetary ailments and the remedial measures that can be taken.

Whereas the subtle body is treated from these tables by Jyotisha , the Ayurvedic therapy can treat and
cure the gross body. Thus the whole person, spiritual, mental and physical will benefit.The analysis of
the rasi, divisional charts and transit charts of rasi and D-6, follow these tables.

From the Data charts above the onset of Diabetes is seen in the Birth Divisional-Chart on Health.
There Rahu (Ra) is in the 12
th
house from rasi Ascendant. According to Maharishi’s Parasara and
Jaimini, when Rahu is in the 8
th
or 12
th
house from the Ascendant (As) he does bad.
Rahu is responsible for feet and stomach. Diabetics suffer greatly from feet pains.
Jupiter (Ju) is responsible for Diabetes among other ailments.
Sani (Sa) is responsible for legs etc. and acts like Rahu in giving pain and misery.

Rahu in the 12
th
house counting clockwise from As. Is aspected by Jupiter in Mesha in the Health
Chart. Thus the diabetic aspect on Rahu who is responsible for feet is evident. Jupiter also aspects Sani
who is 5 houses away from him. The diabetic aspect of Jupiter also acts on the legs aspect of Sani. All
this is taken from the chart of ailments the D-6 Health chart. This is the fine tuned divisional chart of
the natal rasi chart (D-1).

When to predict the time when debilitation takes effect, the date and time after his birth? The
Combinations are:
1. A strong malefic in the 8
th
or Lagna while Venus and Jupiter, or the Moon and
Jupiter are afflicted.
2. Malefic Sukra in Lagna or in a malefic place.
3. Sukra in the 8
th
with a malefic aspect.
Result:
(i) Using no. 3 combination, advancing Ve from D-1 (rasi) lagna in Makara to the 8
th
Leo, where he
lost a toe from diabetes during 2007 note the planetary aspects, date and time: 2007-07-04 @
midnight. Rahu is in the 7
th
and Shani is in the 12
th
! Conclusive proof of these diabetic malefic planets.

(ii) If one advances Rahu to his other bad position , viz. the 8
th
house from the Ascendant in
Capricorn, to Simha where retrograde Sani is in D-1. The time given in the Muhurtha chart is the time
given for the next debilitation. Rahu is thus 00 00-degrees, minutes in Simha on 2017-09-08.
Combination no. 1 is applicable because: the 8
th
from the Ascendant is malefic Rahu. Jupiter is lord
of the 3
rd
Papasthana house in rasi and in the Muhurta chart is in the house of his enemy Budha in
Kanya. The Moon is waning and afflicted in the 3
rd
house in rasi and Rahu is in the 6
th
from him in
Muhurtha!
Note: view the Muhurta chart as an overlap of the D-1 rasi chart.


58
Principle:
• The rasi D-1 transits from sign to sign are the same in the divisional transit chart noting they
are from the rasi D-1 positions. Thus the advanced (or retarded) predicted time in the birth
chart is the same in the divisional chart. The advantage of the divisional chart is that it fine
tunes the rasi D-1 chart.
• For example note the planets positions in D-6 given the results from the above combinations.
Thus what holds true for D-1 holds true for D-6 because there is only one Zodiac.
Summary: What is true for all predictions in D-1 are true for all the special point of interest
charts.

Commentary:

The purpose of Vedic Astrology is to find a fault and then offer the remedial measures that negate that
fault. This is done on both levels: spiritual and bodily. Vedic astrology is a divine science to be taken
seriously. It is above the medical sciences because it is derived from Rshis and an arm (Vedanga) of
the Vedas. It is one of the six vedangas.

Predicting the Future Health:

By artificially advancing Rahu into his bad positions from the Ascendant (the 8
th
position) in the
Divisional D-6 Health rasi Chart we can predict with good certainty the nature of ones health at that
time. This is done by computer which works out all the calculations of the positions required.
Therefore advancing Rahu into the 8
th
from As, the Muhurtha chart (Time-Chart) is given above.
Is Jupiters and Saturns aspect from the houses of Aries and Simha in the Sarvastakavarga chart (SAV)
strong enough to effect Rahu in the Muhurta chart? There SAVs are 26 and 23 bindus, thus below
average strength. Jupiter and Saturns strength are 2 and 3 bindus in the BAV chart, seen below. Thus
debilitation due to diabetes during the muhurtha year 2017-09-08 is unlikely. There are no further
combination years for Rahu, Saturn and Jupiter after 2017 that would cause further ailments due to
diabetes.

Say the Vishnu Sahasrara Nama on the ekadasi once every fortnight.
Say the Purusha Sukta Wednesdays and Siva Ashtottara Sata Nama on Sundays and on the

Say the following mantras to Sani, Rahu and Guru.

Guru:

Sani:
Om Pram Prum Praum Sah Shanisacaraya Namaha

Rahu

Worship in the Navagraha temple when possible the nine planets:

· Put flowers at the feet of Sani, Rahu and Guru : Girikamika, Kalhara and Champaka Flowers.

· Offer in order Sani, Rahu and Guru: sesamum, black gram and chana dal.

· Wear a gold ring on ring finger with stones: blue sapphire, hessonite and white topaz.

Example (23)

The chart is of a young Hindu girl from the time of her first cycle. Parasara says this chart of first
cycle of a young girl is best for female horoscopy. The native would like to study towards qualifying
as a school teacher. Does this career suit her and when? Is this predictable in her divisional chart on
Career, D-10? This chart is cast below :

Data


Principle
The house for Educational institutions and students is the 4
th
house. The planet significators are for
Mercury- profession and Jupiter-learning. The Moon-mind also has to be favourable to study or learn.

Analysis
In rasi D-1 , the 10
th
house from Lagna are deposited Guru and Chandra- both functional malefics.
From the D-10 chart Jupiter the planet of learning is mapped in the 3
rd
house from radical Lagna. This
house yields communication skills, journalism and the media. The Moon mapped in the 9
th
from D-1
Lagna is in the house of Ananda or Divine Grace. This godly house gives righteousness or Dharma to
her cause in career choice.
Since the D-10 chart was cast when the native is still a girl of only thirteen years, when will Jupiter be
in a good house, for the start of her learning towards a career in teaching?
Cast the Muhurta D-1 chart by moving Jupiter into the 4
th
house of educational institutions and note in
the D-10 chart where Jupiter lies in relation to the radical lagna. Test the strength of houses and
planets in the SAV and BAV charts. Test for vedha obstructions to these planets, if none they can give
their good effects.

The Muhurta time for start of possible study in an educational institution to become a school teacher is
2012-5-17. But Jupiter is in the 12
th
the house of loss in D-10. Mercury is in the auspicious 9
th
with
Venus and Rahu. The Moon is in the peaceful-minded 4
th
. All these positions are mapped from radical
lagna. Are these houses and planets strong enough to give good results? What is the Vimshottari Dasa
period? Is it good or bad ? Can a parent recommend Teaching as a career? What would be a good
career choice based on this chart?


61




















Results
In the 2010 transit D-10 chart above Guru is in the 12
th
Makara and a strong 5 bindus with no vedha
obstruction; Kuja is a weak 2 bindus and no vedha; Budha is a strong 6 bindus and no vedha; Chandra
in Vrishabha is an average 4 bindus and no vedha.The SAV chart gives the house of Makara a weak
23; Vrishabha a weak 26 and Tula a strong 32 bindus. The Vimshottari Dasa period is Saturn/Rahu
1996-2015. The antardasas are Mercury and Venus in 2012 and Mercury as noted is conducive to
professions, business and commerce; Venus, gives luxuries and comforts.
Mercury can give its results to the career of Teaching while Venus is expressing passion. Jupiter
though strong is in a house of loss from the birth lagna and the Moon is an average mind.
Conclusion: after a struggle to learn this profession she can succeed.

Example (24)



The native of this birth rasi is a Professor of the Biological Sciences, married with two children. He is
verbally abusive to his wife and anti-social, remaining within his house ignoring one and all including
neighbors. His wife is not allowed to have friends with neighbors and he is suspicious of her
conversations with them and demands the verbal content.
That he has Kuja Dosha in the 2
nd
from Mars, without her having Kuja Dosha and his having
Kemadruma yoga explains a lot of his behaviour to her and others. A Divisional chart analysis of the
five special interest areas D-20, D-30, D-45, D-60 and the marriage chart D-9 will reveal the
personality and mind of the professor. Taking the personality from the Lagna and the mind from the
Moon’s position the following, chart by chart, was found and the Muhurtha periods given for positive
and negative future periods :

Analysis D-9 Spouses

In general, when Jupiter is in the 7
th
house from Venus
marriage may take place. But in this chart Guru is in the 12
th

from Sukra a house of loss, Saturn the planet of fear, danger
and sorrow is with the Moon (his mind) and the 4
th
from
Venus, the planet of marriage. This is to be a sad marriage as a
feeling of well-being (found in the 4
th
house) cannot exist
because of the Moon/Saturn conjunction viz. the mind is
wanting. Also notice the Mars, Saturn asterism the 7
th
from
each other. This is a direct hit. Parasara has this to say: ‘This
aspect is highly critical and dangerous. Great physical
suffering and skin troubles and accidents are indicated. One
may suffer outwarldly or mentally. He is too selfish and may
face physical violence. Burns, wounds, stabs, accidents,
inflammatory fevers are likely.This aspect indicates a life of hardship. There is great courage. The
native does not pay enough personal attention to his personal safety or happiness. The native has
practical powers and leads a disciplined and restricted life.’
63

His marriage, the most auspicious date, taken from the above Muhurta Chart is : 21/08/1966. This is
when Jupiter is 00-degrees in Karka the 7
th
from Sukra in Makara (in the Navamsha chart).
The wife here is very submissive because his Kuja is in dosha from the 2
nd
(birth Lagna in Mithuna)
and is in conjunction with the significator of marriage Venus and the physical body Jupiter. This
marriage was doomed from the start. As for Kemadruma yoga this is what our Maharishi Parasara
says: ‘Kemadruma yoga destroys all benefic yogas. Results of this yoga: denies happiness from
money, children , spouse; and he becomes a servant, lives away from his place, is dirty or shabby, and
has a perverse mind.’

Analysis D-30 Miseries
The Miseries D-30 chart immediately shows Kuja/Chandra
conjunction in the 4
th
(from radical Lagna) and aspected by fearful
and dangerous Sani. Malefic Rahu is in conjunction with benefic
Ketu and aspected by Kuja. Thus the mind is discheveled,
miserable, sad , fearful etc. Sukra in the 12
th
(from radical Lagna)
denies comforts, luxuries, and the gains in name and fame made at
the University where he works ( 4
th
house significance is
educational institutions) by the aspect of Sani in Pisces. Guru and
Sani have swopped houses but this benefit is destroyed by
Kemadruma joga.


Analysis D-45 Character :
Kuja aspects from the 4
th
in Kanya an afflicted Moon with Rahu in
Mesha. Shani soils the character by aspect of the Moon from
Kumbha. The functional malefic Sun also directs its malefic nature
on the mind (Moon) of the professor from Tula. Although this is a
house of gain (11
th
from radical Lagna), the profession succeeds
while the character is wanting. His passion is only for education as
seen from exalted Mercury with Venus.


64
Analysis D-60 Auspiciousness:
The 9
th
house , the house of temples, dharma, judiciary, fortune
and luck is empty in this chart. The Moon in the 2
nd
house
gives speech ability as a professor but is bounded by malefics
Kuja and Surya. Theses malefics bind his mind on both sides.
Thus his karma does not admit to good behaviour. Guru is
aspected by malefic Kuja and Shani in Mithuna and is in the 8
th
house of troubles, loss of friends etc. which all will bear on his
present life from this past life chart. The passion for learning is
present as Guru aspects exalted Budha with Venus but they are
in the 12
th
house of loss. Although he may succeed
academically in Biology as a subject he may not fulfil his
dreams of finding a cure for AIDS in his research at the
University where he teaches.
Analysis D-20 Worship
When Guru is in the 9
th
house, from the janma lagna, the
native could become enlightened and practice Jnana Yoga. In
the D-20 chart Guru is there. Also in the D-1 chart Ketu, the
planet of renunciation and worship is there.
When will the planet and house be strong enough to convert
his mind when Jupiter is in the 9
th
from the Moon? Will the
Dasa period also be beneficial then?




Method :
From the Muhurta-chart place Guru in Scorpio (the 9
th
from Chandra in the D-20 chart). Read the
SAV and BAV charts and note the Vimshottari Dasa period.
65


Results:
The dawn of enlightenment occurs in the above Muhurta chart on or around 11/10/2018. The Dasa
period is most favourable, Jupiter/Mercury with Guru showering his profession, his friends, and giving
him good behaviour from the period 11/10/2018 to 08/01/2019. From the beginning Dasa period all
the planets are in a favourable position and the Moon is no longer isolated or aspected by malefics.
Saturn, the planet of renunciation, in Saggitarius, ruled by Guru, aspects the Sun in the 10
th
Kanya
ruled by Budha in a kendra. Budha signifys profession, commerce, friends and good behaviour, and
Sun the soul. Budha is with Mercury and the Moon at this time. Although these positions are very
favourable what are the strengths and weaknesses of these planets and houses? Can they yield there
good results.

The SAV, BAV –chart, taken from the Moon’s birth position in Pisces, has 24 bindus in Scorpio;
thus the house of divine knowledge is average during this Muhurta. Guru also contributes an average 4
bindus to this strength. But Venus, and Mars contribute a strong 5, 4, bindus each while Mercury a
weak 3. These planets are necessary to elevate him to Jnana Yoga. The question is: if Guru is average
and Mercury is weak and the house is of average strength can he become a Jnani? No predictions can
yet be made.

Example (25)

Chart of a Brahmin with an Alcohol Addiction:-














A devout Brahmin living in the Householders Ashrama has a trouble with spirit alcohol. In rasi D-1
malefic Sun – in a watery sign-is controled by the 2
nd
house - speech, eyes, mouth, face and family.
Shani in Pisces- a watery sign – is in a Kendra to his birth lagna in Gemini. Jupiter the lord of this
watery sign is in lagna (in conjuction with malefic Mars) and aspects the Moon. His mind is fixed on
watery substances and Surya and Shani cause his dependence on spirit alcohol which effect the body
parts above. His D-9 chart taken from his birth chart reveals his dependency on several key grahas and
the resulting abuse of spirit whiskey to himself and his family.

· Guru is in the 12
th
house to radical lagna – this is a house of loss to the physical graha Jupiter.
Shani aspects Guru and brings dangers and sorrows to his physical body. Jupiter is the
nourishment of the body. But when aspected by the want and negating effects of Sani this
causes the nourishment of Guru to turn sour and act as an intoxicant.
· Rahu is conjunct with malefic Ravi and aspects Chandra-the mind in the Navamsa chart. Rahu
is a spoiler of will-power. The Sun represents will-power and he is with Rahu. They also
aspects the Moon or mind of the native from the powerful 7
th
. This breaks down resistance and
Shani has his way with Guru creating demand for non-nourishing substances with a lowered
will-power and mind, the negation of nourishing substances that Guru signifys. Thus there is a
want for alcohol. Rahu, Shani, and Ravi must be pacified and worshipped in the Navagraha
Temple.

Commentary (Bhashya):
Transits on a chosen day when correlated with natal reference points like the Moon or natal Lagna can
cause auspicious or inauspicious events. The moon is ‘mind’ and references to ones mental state can
be used to draw conclusions about special interests on a projected day.
The divisional charts are essential special interest tools. They catagorise areas of interest. Thus one
should use the reference point depending on the required outcome, be it towards one’s personality or
be it towards one’s mental disposition.
The Vedic astrologer should decide which reference point gives the best physical results. The natal
divisional ‘D’ chart is overlapped by placing a transit in the required position. For example:
For children the 5
th
from Ascendant with Jupiter deposited is for the male native and the 9
th
with
Jupiter is for the female native. In the natal divisional health chart, Rahu is placed in the 8
th
and 12
th

positions and then the required planet of disease aspects the overlapped Muhurta chart. The
Ashtakavarga in all cases is of the special interest D-divisional chart and not the natal (Rasi, D-1) chart
if the results are to come out right. From the ascendant or the Moon of the special interest D-chart ,
place the overlapped transit and find the strength of the house and the strength of the planet in that
house. The strength of the transit is determined to be good, medium or bad. The strength from the
Ashtakavarga charts and the Vimshottari dasa period is used to validate the results. Finally find if the
planet has a vedha. Vedhas cancel the good or bad effects of a planet.





68
In summary, the Ashtakavarga of transiting planets, the SAV and BAV charts of the houses and the
planets use the rule of twenty-eight or more bindu points and up to eight bindu points respectively, to
determine the strength of houses and transit planets. Two references : natal Lagna and natal Moon are
used depending on the special interest.
The Sarvatobhadra chart is another very useful tool it correlates transiting planets to their vedhas
points for overall transit effects on a specific day. The result may be benefic or malefic. The rule of
two or more planetary crossings to give a vedha in the Sarvatobhadra chart ensures good predictive
results.
Vedic Jyotisha is a divine science, a Vedanga of the Vedas and is to be taken seriously.
If used according to the rules one can enhance the natives life, give peace of mind, and set him or her
on the right path, given the results and remedies from their janma rasi.
Om Nama Sivaya.





Dasa Principles

In predicting events in a Dasa a Bukti or still in an Antardasa, the general results due to the planet
should be weighed and incongruous results, whenever they occur, should be avoided. The result
should be consistent with the person for whom it is intended, under the condition of life in which he is
brought up as well as the physical possibility at the time. For instance political success may be
predicted in the Dasa of the Sun, if he is in Aries in the 10
th
house. This political success will be at its
maximum provided the Sun is not aspected by malefics and his position is equally strong in the
Navamsa. If the Sun is aspected by Saturn who may be in Aquarius, then in spite of the Sun being in
Aries, complete political success cannot be and ought not to be predicted.
The lord of the Dasa has a quality of his own stamped upon him. This will be modified by the nature
of the house, the nature of the sign, the nature of the aspecting bodies, the nature of the lord of the
constellation the Dasa is in, the favourable and unfavourable situation of the lord of dasa in the
Navamsa and various other factors.
In general:
1. the dasa period of Saturn, if it happens to be in the 4
th
Dasa will be unfavourable.
2. the Dasa period of Jupiter will be unfavourable if it happens to be the 6
th
Dasa. If
Saturn and Jupiter are strong and favourably disposed, the evil effects get considerably
modified.
3. the Dasa periods of the lords of the 6
th
and the 8
th
produce harmful effects unless they
aquire Funtional Beneficence.
4. in the course of a Dasa , a planet produces such results as it indicates by virtue of
ownership, association, location and aspect. For instance, favourable position of the
lord of the 2
nd
will give good income and wealth during its Dasa.
5. the Dasa results in a period stand to be modified by the effect of Gochara of transiting
planets.
6. when Lagna is powerful, during the Dasa of lord of Lagna, favourable results can be
expected to occur – such as rise in profession, good health and general prosperity.
7. lord of the 2
nd
in his Dasa gives wealth.
8. lord of the 3
rd
during his Dasa gives new friend, help to brothers, leadership and
physical pain if afflicted.
9. if the lords above are weak (test with BAV) or ill-placed (look at gochara chart), he
will inflict misery.
69
10. the period of the lords of the 5
th
and the 9
th
are said to be good, so much so that the
periods of the planets, which are conjoined or otherwise related with them, are also
supposed to give rise to good.
11. the general effect of the Dasa (major period) get modified by the planet that rules the
particular Bhukti (sub-period). In such a case, however the influences of both the
planets are to be compounded and the relation between them taken into account.
12. during the Dasa period of a malefic planet when the sub-period of a planet ruling the
3
rd
, the 5
th
or the 7
th
star (reckoned from the natal star or nakshatra) is in progress , the
subject will have a period of trial and tribulation.
o Suppose a native is born in Capricorn under Rohini, then from the
Nature of Planets in Lagna Table, the malefic planets are Jupiter, Mars. If in the
Vimshottari Dasa in the major period of Rahu is the time period, then the 3
rd
, the 5
th

and the 7
th
stars from Rohini are Ardra, Pushya and Magha and their rulers are Rahu,
Saturn and Ketu, respectively. Then the rule states that during Rahu/Rahu, Rahu/Saturn
and Rahu/Ketu periods, trials and tribulations will occur. Similarly use, Jupiter and then
Mars to find other periods of trial and tribulations, but apply the necessary
modifications if found.
13. unfavourable results will be realised when the sub-lord and the major lord
are situated in the 6
th
and the 8
th
or the 12
th
and the 2
nd
from each other,
respectively.
14. the sub-period of the lord of the 5
th
in the major period of the lord of the
9
th
or vice-versa is supposed to produce good effects.

Nakshatra Dasas :
Vimsottari dasa
Events of the Mind -
Vimsottari dasa is the most popular dasa system among Vedic astrologers of today. Sage Parasara
mentions in “Brihat Parasara Hora Sastram” that this dasa system is the most suitable dasa system in
Kali yuga.

Vimsottari means 120. Vimsottari dasa is a dasa system where the total duration of the dasa cycle is
120 years. Dasas of different planets are for different number of years, but the sum of all dasas is 120
years.

In Kali yuga, paramaayush (maximum longevity) of human beings is supposed to be 120 years.
Consequently, Vimsottari dasa is the most suitable dasa in Kali yuga.

When to Use Vimshottari dasa:
o A person born in the dark fortnight must have his lagna in the hora of the Sun;
o A person born in the bright fortnight must have his lagna in the hora of the Moon.

Dasas are reckoned here based on the constellation occupied by Moon. There are other variations that
are more applicable in some cases. Many contemporary Vedic astrologers ignore these variations and
always reckon dasas from the lord of the constellation occupied by Moon. However, this may not
result in the best predictions always. In this book, we will look at some of the variations.

Vimsottari Dasa Variations
From Jyotish Guru P.V.R. Narasimha Rao, BTech., M.S.
Computation of Variations

We always compute the fraction left at birth in the first dasa based on the fraction of the constellation
occupied by Moon, that is yet to be traversed by Moon. However, we need not always take the lord of
Moon’s constellation as the planet ruling the first dasa. We can take the lord of the 4th, 5th or 8th
constellation from Moon’s constellation to start the first dasa. These 3 stars are called kshema, utpanna
and adhana stars.


Example 6: Let us calculate Vimsottari dasa from 4th, 5th and 8th stars.
The 4th star from Moon’s star is Uttarabhadrapada owned by Saturn. Using the 4th star to start
Vimsottari dasa, we get the dasa sequence as — Saturn, Mercury, Ketu, Venus etc. Dasa lengths are
the same as before, but the part of Saturn dasa left at birth is 19 x 0.32125 = 6.10375 years. Then
Mercury dasa is for 17 years, Ketu dasa is for 7 years and so on.
In the same example, the 5th star from Moon’s star is Revathi owned by Mercury. Using the 5th star to
start Vimsottari dasa, we get the dasa sequence as — Mercury, Ketu, Venus, Sun etc. Mercury dasa
left at birth is 17 x 0.32125 = 5.46125 years. Then Ketu dasa is for 7 years, Venus dasa is for 20 years
and so on.

In the same example, the 8th star from Moon’s star is Krittika owned by Sun. Using the 8th star to
start Vimsottari dasa, we get the dasa sequence as — Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu etc. Sun dasa left at birth
is 6 x 0.32125 = 1.9275 years. Then Moon dasa is for 10 years, Mars dasa is for 7 years and so on.
Dasa from Lagna

71
Some authorities have also recommended Vimsottari dasa from the longitude of lagna instead of
Moon. In practice, this will give better results only when lagna is considerably more powerful than
Moon.

Using Dasa Variations

If the sign containing the 5th star from Moon is stronger than the sign containing Moon, Vimsottari
dasa started from utpanna star may be preferred for general results. If the 5th star spans across 2 signs,
take the sign containing the same quarter as occupied by Moon in birthstar. If Moon is in Makha 3rd
pada (quarter), for example, 5th star is Chitra and it starts in Virgo and ends in Libra. So we should
take the 3rd quarter of Chitra and we then get Libra. So Leo’s strength should be compared to Libra’s.


How do we know which sign is stronger? There are no clear guidelines in the literature to compare the
strengths. A sign aspected by Jupiter and occupied by more planets may be taken to be stronger. We
can also use known events to see which dasa is working better.

Vimsottari dasa started from the 4th and 8th stars is used mainly for the purposes of longevity
determination. Look at the signs containing Moon and these 2 stars and find the strongest sign. Here a
sign aspected by marakas and malefics becomes stronger. Start Vimsottari dasa from the star in the
strongest of these 3 signs and use it in longevity analysis. If Moon is in Makha 3rd pada in Leo, 4th
and 8th stars are Hasta (Virgo) and Anuradha (Scorpio). We should compare the strengths of Leo,
Virgo and Scorpio.

Rath’s “Tripod of Life” Principle

Sun, Moon and lagna form the “tripod of life”. Parasara clearly said that we should analyze all charts
with respect to the positions of Sun, Moon and lagna. He advised drawing Sudarsana chakra with the
innermost chakra representing the houses with respect to lagna (body), next chakra representing the
houses with respect to Moon (mind) and the outermost chakra representing the houses with respect to
Sun (soul).

The results experienced due to soul (Sun) last long and change slowly. The results experienced due to
mind (Moon) last shorter and change fast. The results experienced due to body (lagna) change even
faster.


Sun is an important reference point in rasi and divisional charts when judging the results
of a mahadasa. Moon is an important reference point when judging the results of an
antardasa. Lagna is an important reference point when judging the results of a
pratyantardasa.


If a planet takes part in a Ravi yoga (solar combination), it gives the results of the yoga in
its mahadasa. If a planet takes part in a Chandra Yoga (lunar combination), it gives the
results of the yoga in its antardasas. If a planet takes part in other yogas (e.g. a Raja
Yoga), it gives the results of the yoga primarily in its pratyantardasas.
In addition, dasa lord can be taken as a reference point when interpreting antardasas.



72
Ashtottari dasa
Events related to sustenance, achievements, raja yogas and moksha -
Ashtottari dasa is perhaps the most popular dasa system in India after Vimsottari dasa. Sage Parasara
listed it as a conditional dasa applicable only in some charts. The conditions for its applicability are
highly controversial.

In this system, the sum of all dasas is 108 years. Ashtottari means “ashtottara sata”, i.e. one hundred
and eight. Because poornaayush (full life) of a man is 108 years, some scholars have suggested that
ashtottari dasa is best used as an ayur dasa, i.e. a dasa that shows longevity.

There are three different views on the applicability of Ashtottari dasa:
(1) Ashtottari dasa is applicable in all charts.
(2) Ashtottari dasa is applicable if Rahu, who is not in lagna, is in a quadrant or a trine from lagna
lord.
(3) Ashtottari dasa is applicable for daytime births in Krishna paksha (darker fortnight) and night
time births in Sukla paksha (brighter fortnight).

Some people use Ashtottari dasa as an ayur dasa and see longevity in it. Some other people use
Ashtottari dasa as a phalita dasa. Because only chara karakas, i.e. Rahu and the seven planets, have
dasas under the Ashtottari dasa scheme, it may also be suggested that it shows events related to
sustenance, achievements, raja yogas and moksha (just like chara karakas do). Some people, however,
prefer to see all matters in Ashtottari dasa.

Kalachakra dasa
Life Events -
Sage Parasara said in his classic “Brihat Parasara Hora Sastram”:
It means, “there is another dasa called Kalachakra dasa, which is the most respectable of all dasa
systems”. Kalachakra literally means “the wheel of Time”. It shows how the wheel of time unfolds
events in the life of an individual. Parasara said that Lord Shiva explained this dasa to Goddess
Parvati.
Note: Sage Sri Mantreswara said: “Kalachakra dasa system has to be resorted to only when the
lord of the navamsa occupied by the Moon is strong”.

Basics
Dasa of a rasi gives the natural results of the rasi. For example, dasa of Pisces may give sattvik
religious activities. Dasa of Aries may give enterprise or quarrels or wounds.
More importantly, dasa of a rasi gives the results of the house and planets in that rasi. If Aries
has the 5th house in D-7 [i.e. Aries is the 5
th
house from D-7 lagna], its dasa may give children. If
Pisces has the 8th house in D-6, its dasa may give diseases. If
Gemini has lagna in D-24, its dasa may give all-round progress in the accumulation of knowledge. If
Sc has AL in D-10 and its lord Mars occupies it, its dasa may bring good developments related to
career and status. Dasa of a rasi containing the 8th from AL in D-10 may give a fall in status at
workplace. Dasa of a rasi may also give the results of its lord. If Mars is in the 5th house in D-7, Aries
dasa may give children.

Samudaaya Ashtakavarga (SAV) plays an important role in deciding the results in a dasa. If a rasi has
too many or too few bindus in SAV of a particular divisional chart, then its dasa may bring favorable
or unfavorable results, respectively, relating to the significations of that house in that divisional chart.
Usually dasas of rasis with 30 or more bindus in D-10 SAV bring the best phases in one’s career and
dasas of rasis with 30 or more bindus in D-24 SAV bring the best periods for learning. One should
keep SAV of various divisional charts with one when interpreting Kalachakra dasa.
73

Deha and Jeeva Rasis [Body and Spirit]

Listing the deha and jeeva rasis of different nakshatra padas, however, these hold for one born at the
beginning of the nakshatra pada. One can have different deha and jeeva rasis based on the elapsed
portion in the nakshatra pada.

Deha and jeeva rasis are simply the rasis of the first and the ninth dasas in the case of one born in a
savya nakshatra : Savya Group: (15)
Group(a): 10 nakshatras, viz. ,1,3,7,9,13,15,19,21,25,27
Group (b): 5 nakshatras, viz., 2, 8, 14, 20, 26
In the case of one born in an apasavya nakshatra : Apsavya Group: (12)
Group (c): 4 nakshatras, viz., 4, 10, 16,
Group (d): 8 nakshatras, viz., 5, 6, 11, 12,17,18,23,24 ; deha and jeeva rasis are the rasis of the
ninth and the first dasas.

Suppose the first dasa is Sc and the ninth dasa is Sg. Since Rohini is an apasavya nakshatra, Sc
becomes jeeva rasi and Sg becomes deha rasi. Suppose the first dasa is Pi and the ninth dasa is Ar.
Since Punarvasu is a savya nakshatra, Pi becomes deha rasi and Ar becomes jeeva rasi.

Deha rasi shows body and jeeva rasi shows the spirit. Benefics and malefics transiting in them
affect them positively and negatively (respectively). If Jupiter, Mercury and Venus are transiting in
one’s jeeva rasi, one may exhibit a positive spirit and be cheerful. If Mars, Sun, Saturn and Rahu
are transiting in one’s jeeva rasi, one may be without any enthusiasm. If Mars, Sun, Saturn and
Rahu are transiting in one’s deha rasi, one may face accidents or death.


Gatis (special movements)

We see that dasas progress in a regular fashion in Kalachakra dasa. We either go as Ar, Ta, Ge etc or as Pi, Aq, Cp etc.
However, some irregularities can be found. The rasis whose dasas come after an irregular leap go by special names and
special results are attributed to those dasas in classics.

(1)A trinal leap (from Sg to Ar or vice versa; from Pi to Sc or vice versa) is called “Simhaavalokana gati” (lion’s leap).
(2)Temporary reversal of the direction is called “Markati gati” (monkey’s leap). When we go as Sc, Li, Vi, Cn, Le, Ge, Ta,
Ar etc in savya nakshatras, we temporarily reverse the direction when we go from Cn to Le. So Le is a markati gati rasi.
Similarly, when we go as Ar, Ta, Ge, Le, Cn, Vi, Li, Sc etc in apasavya nakshatras, we temporarily reverse the direction
when we go from Le to Cn. So Cn is a markati gati rasi.

(3)Leaving one rasi and jumping over it is called “Mandooki gati” (frog’s leap). When we go as Sc, Li, Vi, Cn, Le, Ge, Ta,
Ar etc in savya nakshatras, we have 2 jumps – (i) from Vi to Cn and (ii) Le to Ge. So Cn and Ge are mandooki gati rasis.
Similarly, when we go as Ar, Ta, Ge, Le, Cn, Vi, Li, Sc etc in apasavya nakshatras, we have 2 jumps – (2) from Ge to Le
and (ii) Cn to Vi. So Le and Vi are mandooki gati rasis.












74
The results attributed to various leaps are given in Table 12.

Table 12: Results of gatis (leaps)
Leap Savya nakshatras Apasavya nakshatras
Lion Fear of animals, loss of friends, Death of father or elders, loss of
distress to near relations, fall in position
dungeons, danger from poison
and weapons, fall from a vehicle,
fever, destruction of house
Monkey Loss of wealth, agriculture and
animals, death of father or elders Danger from water, distress to father,
loss of position, anger of rulers,
wandering in the forests
Frog Distress to relatives, elders and father,
trouble from poison, weapons, enemies,
thieves. In Le-to-Ge leap, death of mother
or, death of native, trouble from rulers
and diseases are possible. Distress to wife, loss of children,
fever, sickness and loss of position


In addition, Parasara listed the directions to prefer and the directions to avoid, while travelling and
relocating, during different leaps.

(1) In the leap from Vi to Cn, east will give great results. One can take up an auspicious journey in the northern
direction.
(2) In the leap from Le to Ge, east should be avoided. A journey to the southwest will be fruitful.
(3) In the leap from Cn to Le, a move in the southern direction results in losses. West is favorable.
(4) In the leap from Pi to Sc and in the normal movement from Sg to Cp, there will be troubles in the northern
direction.
(5) In the leap from Sg to Ar, journeys should be avoided, as they may result in sickness, imprisonment or death.
(6) In the normal movement from Sg to Sc, journeys will bring comforts, wealth and sexual pleasures.
In the leap from Le to Cn, western direction should be avoided.

Conclusion
Kalachakra dasa was called “the most respectable dasa of all dasas” by Parasara. There are many
controversies regarding its computation. This book follows the approach that this author found the
most acceptable based on his study of “Brihat Parasara Hora Sastram” and his practical researches. A
significant percentage of this author’s successful long-range life-phase predictions were made
using Kalachakra dasa and that is his favorite dasa.

When we learn a new dasa, the first question we should ask is “when should it be applied and what
results should be seen in it”. It is illogical to use 10 different dasas interchangably. Mixing up various
dasas without knowing the subtle differences between them results in vague explanations. An
intelligent astrologer will realize that different dasas are good at showing different kinds of events.
Even when different dasas show the same event, they show it from different angles and focus on
different aspects of the same event. Without appreciating this, one cannot understand why maharshis
described tens, if not hundreds, of dasa systems.
Hence it is important to learn when a dasa can be applied and what kind of results it shows. Some
authors suggested that Kalachakra dasa applies only when Moon is stronger in navamsa chart than in
rasi chart. However, this author opines that Kalachakra dasa is applicable to all people, as Parasara did
not impose any conditions on its applicability and went to the extent of calling it “the most respectable
dasa”.


75
Kalachakra Dasa is primarily used for determining the timing of death, and of physical
afflications and difficulties of different sorts. The focus in Kalachakra dasa is state of the
inner self and the sense of connectedness in one’s mind. It shows how connected one is with
respect to the events in one’s life. [compassion, humility, empathy for others, seeing ones Self
as the Self in all ]

Difference Between Nakshatra and Rasi Dasas

· Nakshatra division of the zodiac is ruled by Moon and it shows the mental level.
o Thus Vimsottari dasa throws light on the state of the native’s mind as time progresses.
It focuses on mind. Vimsottari dasa is based on the nakshatra of Moon.

· Rasi division of the zodiac is ruled by Sun and it shows the physical level.
o Narayana dasa shows the progress of lagna in one’s life and it shows the direction
taken by one’s life. The focus is no longer on mind, but it is
on the real happenings. Of course, one’s mental state directly depends on the direction
taken by one’s life and the real happenings in one’s life. In that sense, Vimsottari dasa and
Narayana dasa show the same events. But the focus is different.

Kalachakra dasa depends on Moon’s navamsa. Navamsa (D-9) shows one’s adherence of dharma or
duty and throws light on the inner self. So the focus in Kalachakra dasa is state of the inner self
and the sense of connectedness in one’s mind. It shows how connected one is with respect to the
events in one’s life. For example, a political leader may be running D-10 Narayana dasa of a
yogakaraka rasi and he may land political power. He may be running the Vimsottari dasa of Sun who
may be exalted in D-10 and so he may be feeling powerful. However, if Kalachakra dasa of a weak
and afflicted house in D-10 runs at the same time, his inner self may not feel connected with the events
in his career and he may feel a void. On the other hand, if Kalachakra dasa rasi is strong and occupied
by benefics in D-10, then one may be successfully involved in activities that keep his inner self
engaged.

Narayana dasa specializes in showing what happens in one’s life;
Vimsottari dasa specializes in showing how one’s mind views what happens in one’s life; and,
Kalachakra dasa specializes in showing how one relates to what happens in one’s life and
how connected one feels. It shows the inner motivation behind what happens.
These three are the most important of all general purpose phalita dasas.

Different dasas do not provide different alternatives that can be used interchangeably to understand
what happens in one’s life, but they provide different angles – or vantage points – to view the same
kaleidoscope that life is.










76
Rasi Dasas
Narayana dasa
Life from the Lagna -
Narayana dasa is a very important rasi dasa. It is a phalita dasa. It shows general results. Narayana
dasa is computed differently for different divisional charts and we can use Narayana dasa of a
divisional chart to predict matters related to that divisional chart.

Narayana dasa is based on the progression of lagna in one’s life. As one dasa ends and another starts,
one rasi stops being the progressed lagna and another rasi becomes one’s progressed lagna. Using the
progressed lagna as the reference, we find out the events that happen in that dasa. Thus we get twelve
charts for each person, with each chart applicable in one dasa.
Narayana dasa gives the progression of lagna in life. During the dasa of a rasi, that rasi acts as
lagna. If dasas are started from the 7th house from lagna, then Narayana dasa gives the
progression of the 7th house. So the 7th from dasa rasi gives the progressed lagna, i.e. the rasi that
acts as lagna during the dasa.
· Treat the dasa rasi or the 7th from it – based on whether dasas start from lagna or the 7th house
– as lagna and analyze the chart, to see fortune in a dasa. We will denote it with “dasa lagna”.
We will denote the rasi containing the lord of dasa lagna with “paaka rasi”.

Just as the strength of lagna lord is very important in a natal chart, strength of the lord of dasa lagna is
the key to interpreting a dasa. In addition, a lot of principles were mentioned by Parasara:
· Natural malefics in the 3rd and 6th from dasa lagna give success in ventures. Natural benefics
in those houses give failures.
· Natural benefics in trines and 8th from dasa lagna give happiness and success. Natural
malefics in those houses give failures, obstructions and unhappiness.
· Situation of a planet – benefic or a malefic – in the 11th house ensures gains.
· Rahu in the 8th and 12th houses from dasa lagna gives constant fear.
· If the lord of dasa lagna or the lord of a trine or a quadrant from it is exalted or in own house, it
gives excellent results.
· If the lord of a dusthana {6, 8, 12 } from dasa lagna is debilitated, it gives good results.
· If the 4th house from dasa lagna has malefics, there will be discomfort and lack of happiness.
Benefics in the same house give happiness, well-being and pleasures.
· Benefics in the 2nd and 5th houses from dasa lagna give good name, fame and favors from
authorities. Malefics in the same houses bring bad results in the same areas.
· If the 7th house from dasa lagna and paaka rasi is afflicted by malefics, there may troubles in
marriage.
· Raja yogas and dhana yogas with respect to dasa lagna bring success.
· If dasa lagna or paaka rasi is associated with an exalted planet or a planet in own house, there
will be all-round success and accumulation of wealth in that dasa.

In addition to interpreting dasas taking dasa lagna as lagna, we can interpret dasas from the natal
references also. For example:
· dasa of raajya pada gives success in career.
· dasa of upapada may bring marriage.
· dasa of the 2nd house or the 7th house from upapada may bring troubles in marriage.
· dasa of GL may bring power.
· In particular, antardasas aspected by GL may bring promotions.
· Antardasas aspecting upapada may bring marriage. Arudha padas aspected by antardasa
rasi are important in deciding the results in an antardasa.
We also judge the results given in antardasas by looking at the house occupied by antardasa lord from
dasa rasi.

Conclusion

Narayana dasa may be said to be the most important phalita dasa. Its versatility lies in the fact that it
can be computed separately for each divisional chart for precise timing of specific matters. In fact, we
can compute more than one Narayana dasa for each divisional chart:
- Narayana dasa of D-12 seeded from the 12th lord is native-centric. It shows events in a native’s
life that are related to parents.
o e.g.: 1. open the D-12 chart of the Rasi chart (D-1); 2. find the lord of the 12
th
house in the
D-12 chart and note what rasi he is in; 3. find the Narayana dasa starting from that sign.
Note: use the Options tab to make the changes.
Even when looking at the events in the lives of parents, it takes the native as the reference. To
see events in the lives of parents directly, we can use different seeds.
- Similarly, 12th house (lord of) used as the seed in D-24 Narayana dasa shows the learning from
the point of view of one’s evolution.
o One can use the 4th house [lord] (formal learning) as the seed in D-24 Narayana dasa to
see formal education. Hence start the Narayana Dasa from Aq as the 4
th
house lord in
D-24 was Venus who is in Aquarius. Dasa periods for each sign will relate to formal
education and self taught periods in ones learning evolution.
By using a different seed, we can examine the events related to the chosen divisional chart from a
different angle. Readers should try to master this fantastic dasa system.

Lagna Kendradi Rasi dasa
Sri Laksmi -
Lagna Kendradi rasi dasa uses the movement ruled by Lakshmi. Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and
prosperity. So this dasa shows the periods of prosperity. It shows the progression of lagna using the
movement ruled by Sri Lakshmi. It shows the fructification of yogas.


Sudasa
Wealth -
Sudasa is a rasi dasa. It is also called “Sree Lagna Kendradi Rasi Dasa” or simply “Rasi Dasa”. Its
computation is based on kendras etc from Sree Lagna.
· Sudasa is important for materialistic things like money, power and authority. It can be
used to predict financial matters and matters related to status and power.
If a political leader occupies a post of power, he must be enjoying a favorable dasa as per Sudasa. If a
businessman sees increasing profits, he must be enjoying a favorable dasa as per Sudasa. If someone
struggles with tight finances, he must be going through an unfavorable dasa as per Sudasa.

o Eg: in Visvesvaran chart D-10, the tenth house (Le) contains SL and Ma. That period for the
fruits of ones work and wealth will only occur in the period of Leo 2016-2023. In a past period,
the 7
th
house in D-10 shows long journeys. These work activities actually took place in several
countries during the period of Ta : 1996-2004.
Interpretation
· Dasas of HL, 7th from HL and the signs aspecting HL bring financial prosperity.
· If the lord of the dasa sign occupies or aspects HL, it will improve the chance of financial
prosperity.
o Eg: continuing with above D-10 chart, the dasa of HL in Li is the period 1990 -1993. This was
a time of enjoying wealth brought by past business activities; Exalted Venus aspects the house
where HL is located in Li. Many luxuries were experienced during this time.
78
· Similarly, if the lord of HL occupies or aspects dasa sign, it will also improve the chances
of financial prosperity.
o For example, say HL is in Aries, Mars is in Leo and Sun is in Scorpio. Then (a) Leo
aspects HL, (b) lord of Leo aspects HL and (c) lord of HL occupies Leo. So Leo dasa is
triply likely to bring financial prosperity.

· Same thing holds for GL and the prescribed results are power and authority instead of financial
prosperity.
o Eg: Note again the D-10 chart of rasi, where GL is in Cancer, occupied by Mo and
exalted Ju. The period of Cn 1993-1996 was one of business ownerships!
· Upachayas from any house stand for the growth of matters signified by that house. AL stands
for one’s status. So dasas of upachayas from AL bring growth of status.
o Dasa of the 11th house from AL is particularly favorable.
· The 8th and 12th houses from AL bring setbacks to one’s status. Their dasas can be
unfavorable.









Important Notes

· Sree lagna is the residence of Lakshmi in a natal chart.
· Sudasa sign is the residence of Lakshmi at a given time.
It shows what area of life prospers. For example, Lakshmi coming in contact with Jupiter or
5th house or 5th lord may bring the blessings of Santhana Lakshmi and bring the well-being of
progeny. Lakshmi coming in contact with Sun or 5th lord may bring the blessings of Rajya
Lakshmi and bring power. Lakshmi coming in contact with Ketu or 12th house or 12th lord
may bring the blessings of Moksha Lakshmi and bring spiritual activities. And so on.
o Eg: Sree Lagna in the Visvesvaran chart D-10 is in Leo on 11 March 2008. When will Ketu
transit Leo and occupy this house? Using ‘Search for Transit’ in Jagganatha Hora computer
program Ketu is in Leo on 29 October 2024! Note: exalted Saturn, the planet of want and
longevity is with Ketu and SL at this time aspects Leo from Kumbha. Based on these
parameters, Self-Realisation is possible.

· Narayana dasa is based on the progression of lagna and it shows the changing physical
environment that the native is placed under.
· Vimsottari dasa is based on the progression of Moon and it shows the changing mental situation
· Sudasa is based on the progression of Sree Lagna, which is based both on lagna and Moon. It
shows prosperity, which is partly physical/real and partly mental/perceptive!







79
Drigdasa
Spiritual Awakening -
Drigdasa is a rasi dasa. Drik means vision and drigdasa is a dasa based on aspects. It shows how
spiritual vision develops in a native and steers one’s life. If a native’s chart promises spiritual growth,
this dasa shows religious and spiritual activities and the evolution of one’s soul.
Interpretation:
(1) Dasa of arudha lagna can bring renunciation if there are parivraja yogas in the chart, indicating
renunciation.
(2) Dasas of signs aspecting arudha lagna can bring external activities that are important for one’s
spiritual evolution.
(3) Dasa of lagna and the 7th house can bring internal awakening and self-realization.
(4) Dasa of lagna can also bring fame and power related to spreading spiritual knowledge. A monk
may, for example, become the Chief Pontiff of a monastery.
(5) Dasas of signs containing or aspecting mantrapada (A5, arudha pada of the 5th house) can bring a
religious initiation or sadhana (rigorous practice) of a mantra.
(6) Dasa of the sign containing mrityupada (A8, arudha pada of 8th house) can bring yogic sadhana. It
can activate Kundalini sakti.
(7) Ketu is the significator of moksha (final liberation). Dasa of the sign containing Ketu can bring
spiritual activities that take one towards liberation. Ketu is the only planet who can give real spiritual
awakening and liberation.
(8) Dasa of the sign containing Rahu can create progress after internal turmoil if Rahu is favorable. If
Rahu is unfavorable, it can take the native in the direction of materialism.
Niryana Shoola Dasa
Death -
· Niryana means death and shoola is a weapon of Lord Shiva, who is the lord of destruction.
· Niryaana Shoola dasa is one of the most reliable dasa systems for the timing of death.
Parasara simply called it “Shoola dasa”, but some scholars use the name
· Shoola dasa to denote a different dasa.
Interpretation
Dasa of strong maraka rasis and dasas of rasis containing strong maraka grahas can bring death.
- Usually death occurs in the dasa of a Trishoola rasi. There are three Trishoola rasis and we can
identify the correct rasi based on the longevity category (short, middle or long life).
- If Trishoolas don’t bring death, the rasi containing Rudra in the 12th house can bring
death.
Antardasa at the time of death can be the 6th, 7th, 8th or 12th rasi from dasa rasi. It can also be a rasi
that aspects the rasi that, in navamsa, contains the owner of the 8th house from dasa rasi.
o Suppose dasa rasi at death is Ta and Jupiter is in Le in navamsa. Then the antardasas of the
6th, 7th, 8th and 12th houses from Ta (i.e. Li, Sc, Sg and Ar) can bring death. Also the
antardasas of Ar, Le, Li and Cp – rasis that aspect Le, which contains Jupiter in navamsa –
can bring death. If there is a common rasi between these two principles, it can be a strong
candidate.










80
Shoola dasa

The dasa called Shoola dasa is used for timing death. It shows death, diseases, suffering and death of
relatives.

Interpretation
Like in Niryana Shoola dasa, dasa of a Trishoola rasi can bring death. Because the 2nd and 8th rasis in
the natural zodiac are owned by Mars and Venus, rasi aspect on either of them by Moon generates
Rudra yoga and rasis aspected by Rudra yoga planets can give death.
· AL or the trines from it can give death. If malefics or marakas occupy or aspect the 3rd from
AL or the 8th from AL, those 2 houses can give death.
· Lagna and 7th house both show the self of a person. They stand for the invisible and visible
selves. Niryaana Shoola dasa starts from the 8th house from one of them.

Niryaana Shoola dasa essentially shows the progress of the 8th house. It shows the motion of praana
(life). That is why it has an uneven motion. It goes forward in some charts and backward in some
charts. Also the lengths of dasas can be 7, 8 or 9 years. All this shows that different people have
different motion of praana. When praana reaches Shiva’s Trishoola or a powerful maraka rasi, the
native can die. In Shoola dasa, however, the motion has a constant rate of 9 years per dasa and the
order of dasas is always fixed. This fixed motion is like the motion of a quartz crystal. It is not the
motion of praana and it must be a universal motion. It is suggested that Shoola dasas show the force of
Lord Shiva. The force of Lord Shiva starts from one’s self and moves at a constant rate in a fixed
direction. So Shoola dasa rasi hitting Trishoola rasis is less significant than Niryaana Shoola dasa rasi
hitting Trishoola rasis.

· In the case of Shoola dasa, death occurs when Shiva’s motion hits AL or the trines from it or
the houses of vitality from AL (3rd and 8th).
· AL is involved instead of lagna, because our existence is a maya (illusion) and what Lord
Shiva destroys is the illusion of our existence. The physical body (lagna) simply merges with
the material universe, when burnt or buried, and the perceived self or the maya of existence
(AL) is what is completely destroyed by Lord Shiva.
Lesson: Niryaana Shoola dasa shows the motion of praana (life). Death occurs when praana hits
maraka rasis and the trines from Rudra (Trishoola rasis). Shoola dasa is the reverse. It shows the
motion of Shiva. Death occurs primarily when Shiva’s motion hits the trines from AL or the 3rd house
from AL or the 8th house from AL.
We have listed several rasis above. How do we choose one answer from the list? There are 2 criteria:
(1) Usually a rasi occupied or aspected by AK or Jupiter does not kill a native, unless that planet
happens to be Rudra. (2) Based on whether the native is of short/middle/long life, we are limited to
just 4 dasas. The first 4 Shoola dasas (0-36 years) bring death to a person of the short life category.
The middle 4 Shoola dasas (36-72 years) bring death to a person of the middle life category. The last 4
Shoola dasas (72-108 years) bring death to a person of the long life category. We should choose a
good candidate from those dasas.









81
Death of Near Relatives

Shoola dasa shows Shiva’s punishment. It shows misfortune, suffering and death. Using it, death of
near relatives can also be timed.

For each relative, we treat the house that shows him/her as lagna and find Shoola dasa based on it.
Shoola dasa starts from the stronger of that rasi and the 7th from it. We have different names for
Shoola dasas started from different houses. For example:
· Pitri Shoola dasa (pitri = father) starts from the stronger of 9th and 3rd houses. It is used in the
timing of father’s death.
· Bhratri Shoola dasa (bhratri = brother) also starts from the stronger of 3rd and 9th houses and
it shows the death of younger siblings.
· Matri Shoola dasa (matri = mother) starts from the stronger of 4th and 10th houses.
· Dara Shoola dasa (dara = wife) starts from the stronger of 7th and 1st houses and it shows the
death of wife (this dasa will be identical to the native’s normal Shoola dasa).
· Putra Shoola dasa (putra = son) starts from the stronger of 5th and 11th houses and it shows
the death of a child.


We mentioned earlier that sthira karakas are useful in timing death. Sthira karaka of father represents
father in a chart, for the purpose of matters controlled by Shiva (i.e. suffering and death). Pitri Shoola
dasa shows the motion of Shiva’s force for the father. When Shiva’s force strikes trines from sthira
karaka of father, father’s death can take place. Trines from the corresponding arudha pada can also
give death.






Other Dasas

Moola dasa

Moola means “root”. Moola dasa shows the root cause of the events. It is the link between the events
of current life and the past life (which is the root cause of events). At the time of Varahamihira and
Kalyana Verma, this was a very popular dasa system.


If a planet shows sins in past life (shashtyamsa, D-60), his Moola dasa in this life may give
punishment for those sins. If a planet shows learning in a specialized subject in past life, the native
may learn that subject relatively easily in that planet’s Moola dasa in this life. And so on.

This is a very sacred dasa and should not be abused.






82
Rasi Dasas

· Narayana dasa ( D-1 chart)
Narayana dasa is a very important rasi dasa. It is a phalita dasa. It shows general results (such as
effort and environment). Narayana dasa is computed differently for different divisional charts and
we can use Narayana dasa of a divisional chart to predict matters related to that divisional chart.
Narayana dasa is based on the progression of lagna in one’s life. As one dasa ends and another
starts, one rasi stops being the progressed lagna and another rasi becomes one’s progressed lagna.
Using the progressed lagna as the reference, we find out the events that happen in that dasa. Thus
we get twelve charts for each person, with each chart applicable in one dasa.

· Navamsa dasa
Navamsa dasa is a very important ayur (life ) dasa. Unless Navamsa dasa sign contains or aspects
Yama (lord of death) in the 3
rd

spiritual activites, etc. impact on ones image and status with changing time.
· Sudasa (Laksmi’s Blessings)
Just as Narayana dasa tracks the movement of lagna with time, Sudasa is a rasi dasa that tracks the
movement of Shree lagna with time. Shree lagna is the residence of goddess Laksmi in ones chart.
Sudasa tracks the changes in Laksmi’s residence with time and shows Her blessings. It shows
prosperity, fruition and well-being. It can show everything from power (Rajya Laksmi’s blessing)
to money (Dhana Laksmi’s blessing) to child birth (Dhana Laksmi’s blessing) to vehicles (Vahana
Laksmi’s blessing) to Moksha (Moksha Laksmi’s blessing). While Narayana dasa shows effort and
environment, Sudasa shows well-being and prosperity. For timing wealth and power, it is
particularly indespensible.

· Chara Dasa (a popular phalita rasi dasa)
This dasa was taught by Maharishi Parasara. It is part of the Narayana dasa system. Some scholars
suggest that Chara dasa applies only to natives with lagna in a chara (movable ) sign.
Summary of signs:
• Movable signs {1, 4, 7, 10} – chara - have a duration of 7 years each.
• Fixed signs {2, 5, 8, 11} –sthira - have a duration of 8 years each.

day-time births in Krishna paksha and night-time births in Sukla paksha. Some apply it when Rahu
is in a trine or Kendra from lagna (but not in lagna). As it is based on an 108-year cycle, some use
it as an ayur dasa and time death from it. As only chara karakas figure in it, some use it as a dasa
that shows sustenance and raja yogas.

Mula dasa is a general purpose planetary dasa that is good at showing various phases in life. This
was the most popular dasa at the time of Varahamahira and Kalyana Varma (author of Saravali).
This dasa shows the root (mula) of events, i.e. past karma. Use D-60 (past-life) and D-1 rasi (this

events in a dasa. It is commonly used in Tajaka and monthly charts. The special feature of this
dasa is that lagna has dasa along with planets. In a dasa pravesh chart, dasa sign is the most
important reference and lagna of the chart joins planets and becomes a useful parameter. So it also
has a dasa.

· Sudarsana Chakra Dasa of D-1 (Lagna:Moon:Sun)

Predictive Principles

From Paala Deepika by Sri Mantreswara : A Fundamental Principle of Astrology
Any house (bhava) will bring good results if it is occupied or aspected by a benefic, or its own
lord, or one owning a benefic house, and if it is free from any kind of association with a
malefic.
· This principle takes into consideration not only a natural benefic but a planet that becomes
a benefic by virtue of its ownership of houses in a given chart.
· Thus Mars for Leo (Sun is friend of Mars) and Saturn for Taurus (Venus is friend of
Saturn) are benefics, even if they are natural malefics.
· This result does hold good for a malefic also if it is the owner of the house concerned.
· Negatively the house concerned must not be the debilitation sign, and the planet must not
be in the house of its enemy.
· The planet must not also be eclipsed.
This is a Fundamental Principle and a good deal of misinterpretation of charts rests on failure to
recognise the importance of this truth.
In assessing the results of any house, one must consider that house as if it were the ascendant
and then to proceed to examine it. Similarly one should take up the karaka (signification) of the
required bhava and treat the place it is situated in as if it were the ascendant.
Only use the rasi D-1 chart in applying this rule and never the divisional charts which are
only after all a mapped reference of planets in division to the birth lagna.



· Example:
The 10
th
House from the ascendant is in Taurus and it is to
be treated like the ascendant, call it : dasa lagna. The 2
nd

house from dasa lagna is karaka for wealth, assets, revenue,
aristocracy and family and its ruler Me is karaka for business
and profession. Ju is there with Ve spoiled by Sa. They are
all of weak strength 4, 3, 2 bindus, while the house itself is a
respectable 29 bindus. The house will thus give its results.
In the Kalachakra dasa of this chart the second from dasa
lagna is Gemini which has the period 1989-08-19 to 1998-08-
19. This was a good period for career development. The 10
th

from this 10
th
house is Meena ruled by Ju. Wealth of
professional acumen is assured by Guru. Notice also in Rasi, Me is aspecting this house from the 7th–
the planet of commerce, business and profession. From all these benefic houses and aspects he will
succeed in his professional career.

· To bring about good results the house, its owner and its karaka must all be strong and benefic.
Vedha obstructions must be noted if a successful prediction is to be made. One must consider the
Arudha and Chandra lagans also.
o In the above chart the AL is in Sagittarius. The status of a native is determined by the lord
of the arudha lagna. This lagna is ruled by Guru and occupied by Me, the professional
planet. Benefics only modify his career. Exalted Yogakaraka Ma(R) in Virgo give success,
achievement, strength and character to Me in its aspect. Notice also Ju, Ve, Ma, Me are in a
Kendra from the 2
nd
house and this makes one happy , learned and blessed from this
Brahma yoga.
Rasi D-1

· One more principle is that of the famous Astakavarga. This system is usually applied to find out
the longevity and to ascertain the transit influences of the planets. But the ashtakavarga is also
capable of telling us, along with Shadbalas, which planet in a given chart is strong or weak. This
point cannot be too often repeated.
o The ashtakavarga used for the above example illustrates this important principle.

A Bhava is strong and beneficial if the trines and squares and the 2nd from that bhava are
occupied by benefics or by the lord of the bhava.


o Example:
The chart is that of a great saint-

If the lord of a bhava occupies 6, 8 or 12, or is combust, or is in a depressed or enemy house,
and if there is no counter-balancing (benefic) force, then the bhava will suffer i.e. the dasa of
that lord will be a bad period and all the bad significations of that house will come to bear..
A bhava suffers if the bhava, its lord and its karaka are weak and are between malefics, or are
associated only with malefics.
If the 4, 8, 12, 5 (children) and 9 (father) houses from the Bhava are occupied by malefics, the
result will be the same.
The planets that cause the malefic results of a Bhava during their periods (dasa) are:
i. the lord of the 8
th
house counted from the Bhava concerned; ii. the lord of the 22
nd
drekkana
from that Bhava; iii. the planets in 6, 7 and 8 from that Bhava.

Example: How to Find the 22
nd
Drekkana.
i. The chart on the left has the dasa periods from
Vimshottari dasa below:
The 8
th
from the 4
th
house, from Ma/Sa conjunction, is
Scorpio ruled by Mars. In the MD of Mars, (the
Vimshottari dasa below) and during this entire period, the
native was in foster-care to a family that was soon to
abandon him, the foster-mothers compassion did not
feature. The 4
th
house signifies mother, childhood etc.

ii. From Parasara the drekkana is a 3
rd
division of a sign.
Thus 0-10 degrees; 10-20 degrees; 20-30 degrees is three
divisions of a rasi. Use the Ascendant longitude to see
where in the division lies. If lagna longitude lies in the 1
st

division, the 22
nd
drekkana lord is the 8
th
from the first (lagna) bhava. Note the 22nd Drekkana
is 7*3=21 +1=8
th
. If lagna lies in the 2
nd
division (10-20 degrees) the 22
nd
drekkana lord is the
8
th
from the 5
th
house. If it lies in the 3
rd
division the 22
nd
Drekkana lord is the 8
th
from the 9
th

The 2
nd
Venus; the lord of the 1
st
, the
lord of the 5
th
in Meena and Ketu in the
9
th
complete the trines; The 1
st
Venus,
the 4
th
lord in Meena, the 7
th
occupied
by Guru and the 10
th
occupied by its
benefic lord, complete the strength to
the janma lagna.
89
house from the lagna. In any other bhava take the strongest planet in that house and
determine which division its longitude lies in i.e. the 1
st
, 2
nd
or 3
rd
and apply: 8
th
from the 1
st
, or
8
th
from the 5
th
house or 8
th
from the 9
th
house to find the 22
nd
Drekkana lord. In chart on the
left the 4th house has AK, Sa, at longitude 28:36 , the 3
rd
division . Thus the 8
th
from the 9
th

house is Cancer or lord Mo.

The thirteenth verse states: a planet may be exalted or may be in a
friendly Sign and endowed with all the six kinds of strengths
(Shadbalas). Yet if it is in a Bhavasandhi (the point where the last
house ends and the first house begins), it is powerless.
The planet that occupies the exact cuspal degree (8-degrees) brings
forth the full effect of the Bhava concerned.
Jaimini’s statement: if the lord of a Bhava happens to be in the 6
th
,
8
th
or 12
th
house from that Bhava, or if he is in a depression or an
inimical sign (enemy of the lord of the Bhava) , the results will not
be benefic. This principle has to be modified considerably when
such a planet is associated with or aspected by a benefic, or is
exalted.








Summary of Predictive Principles

· The lord of the 8
th
house from a Bhava, the lord of the 22
nd
Drekkana from that cusp, and
those situated in the 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
houses (= Dusthana houses) from that Bhava are likely
to give malefic results as far as that Bhava (the dasa period) is concerned.
· The lords of a Kendra (=1, 4, 7, 10 houses) is a functional malefic if he is a natural benefic
and functionally neutral if he is a natural malefic.
· The lords of the papasthana houses (=3, 6, 11) are functional malefics. Benefics in the
papasthana houses become functional malefics. But malefics in the 3
rd
, 6
th
and 11
th
houses (=
Papasthana houses) and benefics in the trines and kendras of a bhava will bring about
favourable results. Nevertheless placement of a functional malefic planet in these houses is
not good, unless it is very strong (5 bindus or more or greater than the strength of the lords
of those houses?)
· The cusp where the lord of the ascendant is positied becomes stronger for good or evil.
Generally such a planet proves favourable to the house he is in.This provides a key to the
entire nativity.









90

Parasara say’s about trines and kendras occupied by malefic or benefics.
· Lords of the trine houses {1, 5, 9 } give good results no matter if their inherent
nature is malefic or benefic.
· If a planet has a square (kendra) or trine on another planet that is a strong
aspect.
· Kendras /Squares/Cardinal Houses- {1, 4, 7, 10 } are important houses in a
chart, represent significant aspects of an individual’s life
· Placement of a Functional Malefic in these houses is not good , unless it is very
strong.
· Natural Benefics in these houses, Kendras and Konas, give good results.
Planetary Aspects
· Any planet aspected by the Sun gets strengthened and is active.
· A planet aspected by the Moon or Mercury will become benefic or malefic depending
on the Moons phase (waxing or waning) and the associations with Mercury (strong
conjunction or aspect by a malefic or benefic).
· A planet aspected by Venus becomes like Venus – benefic, if Venus is strong.
· A planet aspected by Mars becomes strengthened- i.e. more benefic or more malefic.
· One aspected by Jupiter aquires a wider scope and becomes benefic.
· Saturns aspect on a planet limits the planets activities- i.e. makes the planet weak and
reserved in its effects.
Even if the lord of the ascendant be a malefic by nature it will not harm the house it
occupies. If it is not only the lord of the ascendant, but also of a malefic house like the 6
th

or 8
th
, its character of a benefic remains because of its ownership of the 1
st
.
o Thus planets which occupy the 6
th
or 8
th
houses in this circumstance, occupy benefic
houses.

Foreign Residence
To find when one will go abroad use the D-4 chart :
· The 9
th
and 12
th
houses show foreign residence in the D-4 chart.
· Rahu signifies foreign residence
In D-4 chart below:




The 9
th
and 12
th
houses in D-4 is Sagittarius and Pisces. Rahu is with Mercury in Aquarius. Using the
Search Transit window in Jagganatha Hora 7.32 find when Rahu transits 0:0:0-degree into
Sagittarius and Pisces after 27 Janurary 1942, the birth date of above rasi chart.
(i) The first transit of Rahu into 9
th
house Dhanus is the date 19
th
August 1955. The native left his
foster home to live in another borough of New York with his reunited parents.
(ii) The second transit of Rahu into the 12
th
Pisces took place on 30 July 1969. After emigrating to
South Africa the native returned to the U.S.A. due to the Viet Nam War draft.
All these dates show how Rahu can determine ones residence in another country or area from birth.
(iii) the Trikona Dasa a Rasi dasa shows how the last period of residence can be broken up into the
four purusahartha’s (D-dharma, A-artha, K-kama, M-moksha) – Pi: 27-01-1962 to 27-01-1972;
62’ – 64’ : D ; student at a university
64’ – 67 : A ; graduated University; emigrated to work in South Africa
67’ – 70 : K ; the wealth during this period would fructify later in life after theViet Nam War
70’ – 72 : M ; released from military service (liberated), returned to South Africa.

Sanchita (Seed) Karma
Bhashya
Karma that comes to fruition in this life time is the seed we brought with us from our past life, these
are the vasannas , the mental temperaments, that come with the vital airs that envelope our soul. In the
gestation state we can remember all our past life experiences. But once we exit through the vaginal
passage into Maya we forget everything and become deluded by Maya. This tirobhava or hiding of
Brahmans spititual presence is part of Brahmans fivefold activities. We see and feel through the
jnanaandriyas and karmandriyas the effects of shakti , the material cause, but are denied the bliss of
the efficient cause, through lack of merit. Nevertheless we are given the tool of Jyotish to bridge
between the two causations and reveal our immediate past life, from the D-60 divisional chart. That
chart shows the karma of our past life, the sum of all previous lives. By using the sacred Moola dasa
we can predict when the sanchita karmans will bear fruit in our present activities, the prabdha
karmans.
Below a birth chart will illustrate, involving the planet Shukra.
92

Chart no. 1 Chart no. 2





Venus in chart 1 is a yogakaraka in Makara which will bring much happiness and prosperity to the
native. The Sudasa – a rasi dasa for Venus appears late in the native life: 2025-2029. Why?
One has to look to past life for the answer. In chart no. 2, Venus is in Saggitarius and exalted
(retrograde). But this house in the past life is the 12
th
house of loss in the present life - Chart 1. This
gave bad results for sustenance and prosperity early in his life but on the spiritual level this house is
the divine 9
th
house from rasi lagna in Chart 1. Material manifestations were important to the native
and the Mula Dasa for fructification of Venus does takes place during the periods 2004-2013. This was
a period of much spiritual development. Mercury the planet of commerce shined upon Venus during
the past life and Mercurys period in the present Mula dasa for 1982-1992 saw much commercially
successful businesses for the native.

Conclusion
The knowledge of Jyotisha has revealed a yogakaraka planet in the present life to be coming from a
disadvantaged position in the last life. By looking into the past through the D-60 divisional chart and
finding the periods for Sudasa and Moola Dasa one can reveal ones karma acting in the present from
the planets karaka or significance in the past.

How To Time An Event
The Birth Star, the Birth Moon and the Panchaka:
In fixing auspicious times there are three factors which are common to almost all elections and which
require utmost attention:
Tarabala (nakshatra strength): In the janmanakshatra is situated the birth Moon. On the
elected day of activity count from the birth constellation to the constellation of that elected day
and divide the number by 9- if the remainder is 1 (janma) it indicates danger to the body; if 2
(sampat) wealth and prosperity; if 3 (vipat) dangers, losses and accidents; if 4 (kshema)
prosperity; if 5 (pratyak) obstacles; if 6 (sadhana) realisation of ambitions; if 7 (naidhana)
dangers; if 8 (mitra) favourable; and if 0 (parama mitra) very favourable.
o 100% strength- when the days nakshatra falls in the first Paryaya or cycle,i.e., within the
first 9 stars, the activity holds good or evil - 100%.
o 50% strength- when in the 2
nd
Paryaya i.e. from stars 10-18 only 50% is the evil or good
effects. In fact the evil is centred only in the first quarter of the 3
rd
(Vipat), the 4
th
quarter of
the 5
th
(Pratyak) and the 3
rd
quarter of the 7
th
(Naidhana) of the 2
nd
cycle.
o 0 % strength- stars falling in 19
th
-27
th
in Nakshatra chart have almost no effect, good or
bad. But in my humble experience it is better to avoid Vipat and Naidhana stars for all
important undertakings.the 22
nd
is always sadhana and the 27
th
para mitra and hence they
can be considered as auspicious.
Chandrabala (Moon strength): the consideration and the position of the Moon and his
position is most important in Muhurtha (auspicious election of time). The Moon should not
occupy in the election chart, a position that happens to represent the 6
th
, 8
th
, or 12
th
from the
person’s Janma Rasi (birth sign).
Panchaka (Five Source Energy): For very important occasions such as marriage, nuptials,
entry into new houses, travel, etc. add Panchaka as a required test of strength to Tarabala and
Chandrabala. If the muhurtha is free of defects, perform the ceremony, or take the travel date
as safe.
o Take the number of lunar days (from the 1
st
of the month)
o The number of the weekday (Sunday-1, Monday-2 etc.)
o The number of the constellation (fron Aswini)
o The number of the Lagna (Ascendant from Aries).
o Add the above together and divide by 9:
- If the remainder is 1 (mrityu panchakam), it indicates danger.
- If 2 (agni panchakam), risk from fire
- If 4 (raja panchakam), bad results
- If 6 (chora panchakam), evil happenings
- If 8 (roga panchakam), disease
- If the remainder is 3, 5, 7, or 0, then it is good.


Example: A couple want to celebrate their wedding anniversary with a homa and prayers at a temple.
The devotee was not born in the janmanakshatra of Rohini, the constellation day of the puja. The lunar
tithi is Sukla Shasthi (7
th
) and the rising sign is in Bharani a Sunday: The date is 2010-03-21 and the
time set for the puja and homa is 09:30:00. Is this date and time auspicious or evil? Use Tarabala,
Chandrabala, and Panchaka to test this muhurtha or election time.





94


















• The time is unfavourable; but to make it
right if the As-ascendant or rising sign is
moved to the next house i.e., make the time
for the ceremony to start at 10:12, fourty-
two minutes later, there is no bad result-
because the zodiacal sign 2 (Taurus), gives a
remainder of 5 in Panchaka.

• The general rule of avoiding unfavourable
Panchaka has exceptions:
1. when an election has to do with occupation,
avoid Raja Panchaka.
2. in elections bearing on house building, avoid both
Raja and Agni Panchakas.
3. in regard to travel, Chora Panchakra should be
rejected.
4. in marriage and upanayama (sacred thread) Roga and Mrityu Panchaka should be avoided.

· For Tarabala in above example , the nakshatras ruled by the 1
st
, 3
rd
, 5
th
and 7
th

constellations were avoided; he was not born in Rohini which would have made it the
1
st
constellation and that would be danger to the body, etc.
· When the day is favourable, the negative parts of the unfavourable constellations may
be avoided. Thus in the Janma, Vipat, Pratyak and Naidhana constellations, the first 7,
3, 8, and 6 gathis, respectively may be considered evil and avoided. Note: this may be
necessary when urgency is required for performance of an occasion on a certain
day.
· A day ruled by one’s Janma Nakshatra is ordinarily held to be unfavourable for an
election. But in regard to nuptial’s, sacrifices, first feeding, agriculture, upanayanam,
coronation, buying lands, Janma Nakshatra is favourable without exception. But it is
inauspicious for war, sexual union, shaving, taking medical treatment, travel and
marriage. For a women, Janma Nakshatra would be quite favourable for marriage.

Calculation: Panchaka

Number of constellation 4
Number of weekday 1
Number of zodiacal sign 1_

13/9= 1 4/9 – 4 as remainder.
It indicates raja panchakam or evil
and hence the time selected is not
favourable.
95
Travel-
o The most essential factors to be remembered in selecting a suitable day for travel are (a)
a good lunar day, (b) a favourable constellation, (c) a well fortified Lagna (place Jupiter
or Venus), (d) the absence of Panchaka Dosha.
o The best lunar days are the 2
nd
, 3
rd
, 5
th
, 7
th
, 10
th
, 11, and 13
th
tithi’s.The 14
th
lunar day
and Full and New Moon days should be avoided at any cost.
o No journey should be undertaken on days ruled by: Krittika, Bharani, Aslesha,
Visakha-beyond 14 ghatikas-ok, Punavasu, Purva Bhadra-beyond 16 ghatikas-ok and
Arida. For sure do not travel on Krittika or Bharani ruled days. Do not travel on a
Tuesday.
o Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Sagittarius are favourable signs for starting a
journey. Journey should not be undertaken when the transit-lagna is in the 5
th
, 7
th
, or
the 9
th
from ones Janma Lagna.
o Let Jupiter or Venus be placed in transit-lagna and the Moon in any place other than
the 8
th
at the start of the journey to make the travel successful.
o The Moon should be in the 3
rd
,6
th
,9
th
,or 12
th
and Jupiter in a Kendra from Lagna.
o Avoid days of vernal and autumnal equinox and the days on which the Sun enters a
new sign every month.
o Start when Moon is in Lagna fortified by the disposition of Jupiter or Venus in a
Kendra.
o Mercury placed in the 4
th
and Jupiter in the maraka 2
nd
and 7
th
will neutralise any
adverse effects on travel.
o Benefics in the kendras and trines act as powerful antidotes for all evils.
o Jupiter in transit-Lagna, malefics in Upachayas and Venus in any house other than the
7
th
would be an ideal combination.
o Air Journeys-take due note of Tarabala. Let the transit-Lagna be an air sign
{Gemini, Libra and Aquarius}. Avoid Mars in transit-Lagna, the 7
th
and the 8
th
.
Moon is to be waxing and as far from Rahu as possible. Place Jupiter or Venus in
transit-Lagna, if possible, or aspecting transit-Lagna.

Example-Travel

Air travel was elected on Friday, 24 Sept. 2010, @ 14:15:00 hrs from Orlando International

above requirements for safe air-travel after
rejecting other dates?
parameters:
• Janjma Lagna= Mesha (Aries)
• Janma Nakshatra= Moon in Vrisha (Taurus)
• Lunar Day- Moon is Waxing in 2

• Weekday - not a Tuesday, but a Friday
• Constellation-Revati-Good
• Fortified Lagna – aspected by Jupiter and Moon
• Panchaka Dosha = 5 (good)
• Transit lagna is Libre an Air-Sign and not 5

Vastu Siddhi’s- Building Laws
o No temple or house-building to commence in the lunar months of Jyestha, Ashadha,
Bhadrapada, Aswayuja, Margasira, Pushya and Phalguna as they connote respectively,
death, destruction, disease, quarrels, misunderstandings, loss of wealth, incendiarism
and physical danger.
o Lunar months of Chaitra, Vaisakha, Sravana, Kartika and Magha are the best.
o Sun should occupy fixed signs {2, 5, 8, 11} or at least movable but not {3, 6, 9, 12}
dwisdwabhava or common signs.
o Foundations are best laid in Nakshatra’s : Rohini, Mrigashira, Chitra, Hasta, Jyestha,
Uttara Phalguni, Uttara Ashadha and Sravana. Mediocre Nakshatras are Swati, Pushya,
Anuradha, Ashwini, Satabhisha, Uttara Bhadra and Revati.
o All the odd tithis (lunar days) except the 9
th
(Navami) are good. Even tithis 2, 6, and 10
are auspicious.
o Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are the best. Saturday should be rejected as
it connotes theft. Sunday should be avoided unless strong.
o Fixed signs of planet occupancy are the best. Movable signs should be rejected.
Common signs may be preferred provided they are occupied by strong benefics.
o The rising sign at the time of laying the foundation should be highly fortified by the
disposition of malefics in 3
rd
, 6
th
and 11
th
houses and benefics in kendras and trines.
o The 8
th
house must be vacant and not aspected by malefic planets.
o Varahamihira says after finishing the Puja the first foundation-stone shall be laid on the
north-eastern corner of the site. If a temple is the foundation, then place a jewel for
each Deity under the first foundation-stone.
o See Appendix, Example: How to Time Laying a Foundation Corner-Stone for a
Building or Temple.

Ailments

Diabetes
Combinations are:
1. A strong malefic in the 8
th
or Lagna while Venus and Jupiter, or the Moon and Jupiter are afflicted.
2. Malefic Sukra in Lagna or in a malefic place.
3. Sukra in the 8
th
with a malefic aspect.
Example
The birth chart on the left belongs to a middle age man in late fifties. He suffers from type 1 diabetes
and recently lost a toe to the disease. It is easy to see from his chart the presence of his disease. The
question is when will he suffer loss of body part again?


× From no. 3 combination, advancing Ve from D-1 (Rasi) lagna in Makara to the 8
th
Leo,
malefics Sa and Ke are in conjunction and the date of 29 September 2007 is his next possible
debilitation. However no major dibility takes place because Venus has a strength of 3-bindus in
BAV and the house of Leo in SAV is only 21 bindus. This weakness caused little effect for
ailment due to diabetes for September 2007. Also the Vimshottari dasa Venus/Mercury starts
on 26/08/2007 and both planets are benefic to each other.

Epilepsy and Neurasthenia
Combinations are:
1. The Sun, Moon and Mars in Lagna aspected by a malefic.
2. The Sun, Moon and Mars in the 8
th
aspected by a malefic.
3. the Moon and Mercury in a Kendra aspected by a malefic
while a malefic is in the 5
th
or the 8
th
.
4. Mars and Saturn in the 6
th
or th 8
th
, with Jupiter in a Kona.
5. the Moon and Mercury in a Kendra or in the 5
th
while all
malefics are in the 8
th
.
6. the Moon in a malefic house with Rahu, Keth, Saturn or
Mars.
7. Afflicted Jupiter in the 3
rd
.
8. the Moon and Rahu in Lagna, and malefics in konas.
9. weak or afflicted Moon and Rahu, or Saturn and Mercury.
10. afflicted Moon amd Mercury.
11. the Moon , Mars, and Saturn in the 8
th
.



98
Example
The young man with the chart on the right suffers from alcoholism and seizures. His birth chart
satisfies combination no. 7. He has afflicted Jupiter in the third. Jupiter is a functional malefic in
conjunction with Ravi, aspected by Rahu, 5
th
from him, and waning Moon in the 7
th
. His seizures
occur from time to time.



Gout or Rheumatism
Involve one or more of the following:
1. Both luminaries afflicted in a watery sign : Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
2. luminaries in conjunction with or in opposition to malefics in Mesha Vrishabha, Karka,
Vrischika, Makara, Kumbha or Meena.
3. Saturn in Pisces opposing Mars or the conjunction of the Sun and the Moon.
4. Saturn in Kanya, Dhanus or Makara identical with the 6
th
or 12
th

Example
The chart on the right is of a woman who has inflammation of
the legs and especially the knees. Her Venus is in the 8
th

aspected by malefic Saturn. Number 19 above applies.

• Result
Her SAV chart for the house of Chandra, where Venus is deposited is of strength 25 bindus.
This is average strength. But her Venus is at 6 out of 8 bindus in that sign. This is strong and
cause for the painful effects of inflammation or pitta dosha in the tissues of her knees and
possibly the joints in her feet. Saturns kalapurusha is legs and knees.

99
• Remedial
Propitiate Lord Sukra and Lord Sani in the Navagraha temple. Say mantras to them daily, offer
flowers and appropriate prasadam. Use Ayurvedic therapy for pain in the joints. Follow the
correct diet for constitution of Pitta Prakruti.
Cancer
Cases of cancer can be diagnosed from the Moon, Mars, Saturn and Rahu;
cancer is directly connected with Rahu, afflicted (waning) Moon, afflicting Jupiter or Sani; and the
signs, Virgo and Pisces. Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn can be involved. Any relation
between the lords of the 6
th
and the 8
th
makes for a high intensity of the ailment leading to cancer. In
any chart the 6
th
is the house of disease, and the 8
th
that of the nature of death. Cancer is an infection of
the blood, and blood comes under the Moon and Mars, also under the Sun. The maintenance of the
cells is regulated by the Sun, the Moon and Jupiter; and any affliction to these comes from Mars and
Saturn. Rahu governs any form of malignant growth.

Summary on Cancer:
This analysis reveals the importance of the lords of the 6
th
and the 8
th
house, Lagna. At the same time
Mars, Saturn and Moon and Rahu play a major role. Moreover each part of the body refers to a
specific house and to a particular planet which have to be considered along with other factors. One
should not run into a judgement simply because these factors exist in a given chart. One should also
carefully examine the divisional charts D-6 (health troubles), D-8 (sudden and unexpected troubles)
for longevity, D-16 (happiness, comforts and discomforts) and D-30 (diseases, punishments ). Above
all one must ascertain the Shadbala strength of the planets- SAV and BAV. [And then the Dasas too
for benefic or malefic Mahadasa periods ]. Then only one can predict with accuracy. Otherwise the
prognosticator will condemn the persons consulting him to unnecessary worry and mental torture.

Timing Marriage for Most Auspicious Periods by Sri Mantreshwara Method
· Marriage takes place when Venus or the lord of the 7
th
house comes to transit in a
trine to the sign occupied by the lord of the Ascendant in Rasi or in Navamsa. It is
alright if the lord of the 7
th
happens to be a slow-moving planet like Jupiter or
Saturn. Otherwise many troubles will crop up during any given year.
· Marriage takes place in the periods of the planet in the 7
th
house, planet aspecting the
7
th
house, and the lord of the 7
th
house. It can also take place when the lord of the
Ascendant comes to the 7
th
house in his transit -
108
Method: Find out where the lord of the 7
th
house is in Rasi and in Navamsa then
ascertain the relative strength of the lords of these houses. The major period of the
stronger one gives rise to marriage.
· When Jupiter transits a trine to the sign in Rasi or Navamsa occupied by the lord
of the 7
th
house, marriage can take place.
Other Marriage Timing Factors
· A favourable period appears when Jupiter in transit aspects or passes through the sign
occupied by radical Venus, the 7
th
house or the lord of the 7
th
. If this position is not
afflicted by transiting planets, marriage can take place.
Matching Rasi’s and Navamsa’s of Couples
· A strong well balanced and unaffected Venus gives a balanced marital life for a man, a
similar Mars governs the balanced sex life of a woman. These are the two basic planets.
· Venus is to be examined with the Sun in a mans chart - are they benefic or inimical to
each other? Mars is to be examined with the Moon in a womens chart – are they benefic
or malefic to each other?
· The position of Venus in a males chart is to be compared with that of Mars in the wifes
chart; a similar comparison between the Sun in the husbands chart and the Moon in the
wifes is necessary- are they (the planets) inimical (malefic in conjunction or aspect) or
complementary (benefic in conjunction or aspect) to each other in the trines or kendras
or in papasthana houses ?
· The Navamsa chart of the wife does it agree with these planets positions above (trine,
square, sextile) with the Rasi chart of the husband? And whether the Navamsa chart of
the husband agrees with the Rasi chart of the wife in the same manner as vise-a-versa.

Timing a Marriage Chart by Transiting Planets


Seven Laws of Marriage:
1. Venus in the marriage-chart and the 7
th
lord from the rasi chart should not be aspected by malefics
or be in a malefic house in the marriage transit chart and the navamsa-chart’s of the other spouse.
o In the marriage- transit-chart: Rahu in Simha a malefic aspects Venus in Khumba on the
day of marriage: 30 March 1979 at 11:30, 31E22, 26S29 (see below).
In the male rasi chart the 7
th
lord= Moon, is in the marriage-transit-chart in the 12
th
Aries, a house
of loss. Moon in the marriage- transit-chart is aspected by malefic Rahu in the 4th. In the navamsa
of the bride the Moon is conjuncted by malefic Venus-there are mental conflicts imposed by her on
him in the marriage. In the female rasi chart the 7
th
lord=Mars is in the 11
th
Pisces in the marriage-
transit-chart. Mars in this same chart is aspected by malefic Jupiter from the 3
rd
. Her Mars in his
navamsa is in the 6
th
a bad house. The elected day of marriage was not chosen by astrological
principles and could have been much better if done so. The navamsa conflict was not serious
enough to deny marriage and did not make a bad marriage.
2. The lord of the 7
th
in rasi should be free from malefic association or aspect from its position in
the other rasi chart of marriage.
o The lord of the 7
th
=Moon in the mans rasi is in lagna in the female rasi chart. The Moon
although in lagna is aspected by Rahu and functional malefic Jupiter. Her 7
th
lord=Mars is
in a kendra or square to his rasi lagna.
3. The transiting Functional Malefic lords of: 3
rd
, 6
th
and 11
th
houses should not be in the
Lagna of both rasi charts or their 7
th
house :
o Moon (FM lord of 3
rd
in transit chart) is in lagna in female rasi chart and Jupiter (FM lord
of 11
th
) is in 7
th
house.This was not a good chosen day for her marriage.
4. Venus in transit should not be in a malefic house from the ascendant of the boy; and
Mars in transit should not be in a malefic house from the Ascendant of the girl.
o Mars is in the 11
th
in the transit house from her rasi Ascendant position.
5. The Moon at the time of marriage must be in a benefic house from the Lagnas of both.
o Moon is in a trine from his janma lagna and in the lagna of hers.
6. The boy is to be married in an odd year from the date of his birth, and the girl in an
even year.
o Man: 1979-1942=37 odd number; Woman: 1979-1959=20 even.
7. The Moon must transit through one of the following constellations: Rohini,
Mrigashira, Makha, Uttaraphalguni, Hasta, Swati, Anuradha, Moola, Uttarashadha,
Uttarabhadrapada, Revati.
o In the marriage-transit-chart below Moon is in 15-degrees Aries = Bharani, not above.

Timing Marriage by Stars (Taras), Lunar Days, Weekdays, Yoga and
Karana
1. Karthari Dosha- This yoga occurs when there are natural malefic planets on either side of the
Lagna; in the transit chart this muhurtha should be rejected for good timing, in particular, in regard
to marriage.
2. Shashtashta Riphagatha Chandra Dosha-the Moon should not be in the bhavas 6
th
, 8
th
, and 12
th

from the Lagna rising in a transit timing chart.
3. Sagraha Chandra Dosha- The Moon’s association with any other planet, benefic or malefic ,
should be avoided, especially in regard to marriage.
4. Udayasta Suddhi- the Lagna and the 7
th
lord should be strong. The Lagna should be occupied by
its own lord and the Navamsa by its own lord or lord of Lagna should aspect Navamsa lord and
vise versa. The strength of Lagna by aspect or deposit of Venus or Jupiter and the 7
th
by
deposit or aspect by Venus or Jupiter is necessary in all timing charts but especially so in
regard to marriage.
5. Bhrigu Shatka-the position of Venus in the 6
th
is injurous. This is especially so in
marriage.
6. Kujasthama-Mars in the 8
th
house is a disaster in muhurtha charts and more so in a marriage
timing chart.
7. Ashtama Lagna-in selecting a time for marriage, the Lagna ascending should not happen to be
the 8
th
from the Janma lagna of the bride and the bridegroom.
8. Krura Samyuta Dosha- the constellation occupied by the Sun at a given moment, and the one
immediately preceeding and succeeding it have to be rejected for purposes of marriage.
When any of the Yogas above come to play in any given Muhurtha Marriage chart, the following
antidote is used to nullify the unwanted effects:
Venus, Mercury or Jupiter in the ascendant will completely destroy all other adverse
influences.
Jupiter has the power of dispelling all the evils due to the Lagna, Navamsa and
malefic aspects and render the time highly propitious.
The mere presence of the Moon or the Sun in the 11
th
will act as antidote for other
evils obtaining in the horoscope.
If the angles or trines are well fortified, evil influences are countered.
A planet exalted in Lagna will nullify the other adverse influences.
Jupiter or Venus in a Kendra (quadrant) and malefics in 3, 6, or 11 will remove all the
flaws arising on account of unfavourable weekday, constellation, lunar day and yoga.

Example of : Timing Marriage for Most Auspicious Periods by Sri Mantreshwara Method
Lets see how the marriage of the above spouses could have avoided the obstacles they
encountered if they woul have chosen a time and period following Sri Mantreswaras methods.
1. Marriage takes place when Venus or the lord of the 7
th
house comes to transit in a trine
to the sign occupied by the lord of the Ascendant in Rasi or in Navamsa. See the
following muhurta charts starting on the actual day of marriage and then when this
dictum is satisfied. Then would that be the correct day, month, and year for the
marriage?
Use either Jyotisha Tools or Jagannatha Hora 7.02 for the calculations. Using the
sahama for Vivaha (marriage) in ‘Search Transit’ in Jagannatha Hora 7.01 this puts
Venus in Dhanu (Sagittarius) the 9
th
from Saturn in Mesha from the male Rasi chart
and this trine position occurs on 8 December 1979 @ 21:15 hrs. and is shown in below
chart on the left. But this is the wrong year for marriage from the above injunctions
given in our Shastras on marriage. If one carries the process to the following year and
use the 2
nd
trine postion (5th) from the lord of Lagna in the Rasi chart we get the chart
112
on the right. Here Venus the significator of marriage is in the 5
th
trine position from
Saturn in Rasi.
This should have been the date of marriage of the spouses and obstacles of importance
could have been avoided. Nevertheless in spite of all obstructions the couple are still
married by Gods grace.






Other dates can be found using Mantreswara :
2. When Jupiter transits a trine to the sign in
Rasi or Navamsa occupied by the lord of
the 7
th
house, marriage can take place.
The lord of the 7
th
house in Rasi is the
Moon in Vrisha (Taurus). The chart for
this position shows slow moving Jupiter
only in a trine to Moon in Rasi on
11/09/1992 ! This auspicious date is to far
advanced for most young couples who
wanted to marry in 1979. Venus position
is better. One must use the required law
as is needed, if for an earlier marriage.
Matching Rasi’s and Navamsa’s of Couples
1. Venus is to be examined with the Sun in a mans Navamsa chart - are they benefic or
inimical to each other? Mars is to be examined with the Moon in a womens Navamsa chart
– are they benefic or malefic to each other? Note: the results are better from the Navamsa
charts than from the rasi (birth) charts of each spouse. See next page.
o The Sun the enemy of Venus is in the 3
rd
inimical Navamsa sign, while
malefic Venus is in the bad 6
th
sign from the Navamsa lagna. Although these
papasthana sign positions of Surya and Chandra are bad they do not make
them inimical to each other.
o The Moon is in a trine from Navamsa lagna of the female and Mars is in a
6
th
bad house position. They do not effect each other adversely.
2. The position of Venus in a males chart is to be compared with that of Mars in the wifes
chart; a similar comparison between the Sun in the husbands chart and the Moon in the
wifes is necessary- are they (the planets) inimical (malefic in conjunction or aspect) or
complementary (benefic in conjunction or aspect) to each other in the trines or kendras
or in papasthana houses ?
Left-Chart= 8/12/1979 Right Chart = 29/09/1980

) to Saturn in Rasi Venus trine (5
th
) to Saturn in Rasi
Jupiter trine (5

113
o Venus in the male Navamsa chart is the 11
th
sign from Mars in the
female Navamsa chart. The 11
th
sign is auspicious to gains and realisation of
hopes.
o The Moon is Trine to the husbands Sun in the Navamsa charts. Thus her
Moon is in an auspicious sign in her Navamsa. A happy marriage is
predictable, mental and physical.
3. The Navamsa chart of the wife does it agree with these planets positions trine, square,
sextile with the Rasi chart of the husband? And whether the Navamsa chart of the husband
agrees with the Rasi chart of the wife in the same manner as vise-a-versa.

The wifes Navamsa chart is on the left. Her Moon in D-9 is in the 9
th
from his birth lagna
(Capricorn). This house of Brahman is the also the bhava for children in a womens chart.
She can expect many children. There were four. Her Mars in Navamsa is the 10
th
from his
radical lagna. She will partner the wealth from his business and give strength.
















The husbands Navamsa chart is on the right. His Sun is in her rasi lagna. They have the same physical
abilities and connection to the soul. His Venus is in a Kendra to her radical lagna. They will enjoy the
pleasures of married life.

Q. From which house or planet do you predict a second marriage?
Answer: Venus & the 7th house indicates marriage. If you are sure that the first will either die or
separate from the husband, take the planets in the 7th or associated with Venus. The strongest will
determine the second wife. In a female horoscope, take Saturn in the place of Venus.

116
Kuja Dosha Effects for Mars in Houses : { 2, 4, 7, 8, 12 }.

Mars in the 2
nd
house- He creates discord in the family.
Mars in the 4th house - The planet of battle is in the house of family life, so battle in family! Mars deprives the native from
domestic harmony, there are misunderstandings among the family members. Mars will cast his 4th aspect on the 7th house of
spouse and marital life. In 4th house Mars loses his strength for direction and creates more and more trouble in family life.
Mars in the 7th house - There will be clash and unhappiness in married life and this is perhaps the worst of Kuja Doshas - a
direct hit. Mars is a planet of abuse and violation and Mars being in 7th house very possibly can give violation in married
life. In a female chart it might give physical or excessive mental torture from the husband. There will be also fight for the
dominating power, and there might be lack of harmony in the sexual issues. The sexual and emotional needs of the partners
might not match or might have a great difference. Mars might give over sexual desire / sickly sexual desire to the native or to
his spouse and create mess in marital life for this issue. It might give a short tempered wife.
Mars in the 8th house - The 8th house rules marital tie, fromthe 8th house we see the possibility of death of the spouse.
Mars is the planet of accident, operation, assult from weapons and bleeding etc. - all of the things are rules by 8th house. So
being in the 8th house, Mars will be very eager to develop these tendencies. He might cause death of spouse, possibly
through accident, operation or any other mishaps. Thus it can indicate an early death of the spouse. 8th house is also a house
of hidden issues / immoral acts and Mars here can make the native / spouse be involved in hidden and sinful acts. When they
come forward, storm blows in married life.
Mars in the 12th house - 12th house rules all kinds of losses and also the bed pleasure, i.e. sexual enjoyment. Mars here can
give a native sickly desires, or illegal unions with other people. Again, Mars will aspect the 7th house with it's 8th aspect.
























Bhashya
Kuja Dosha
One should hold to the principle of Kuja-dosha as absolutely and universally valid; only the
interpretation of this dosha is different in each case, and it depends on the Navamsha chart and
on matching charts. Death, divorce, separation, denial or delay of marriage, ill-health and the
like are the possible results. Care should be exercised in watching the charts and in evaluating
the aspects. We have to accept square, trine, conjunction, opposition, sextile, and semi-square
aspects for all planets. Except in the case of the Su and the Mo , the orb of the aspect extends to
8-degrees before and after. The luminaries have an orb of 12-degrees. The astrologer should
not try to console or to eye-wash the anxious parents of girls. If he cannot speak out truly, he
should observe silence. There are no exceptions to Kuja Dosha. While matching, if we find
similar Kuja Dosha the results get modified and never completely cancelled.

• Seventh and eighth house’s in marriage charts must be both mutually strong and well disposed
with appropriate planet(s) and is usually the first parameter to consider before continuing with
suitable compatability of partners.
o The 7
th
house in male chart is unoccupied but aspected by Venus and Saturn. Both these
planets are malefic in his birth chart and disappointment may occur in marriage.
o The 7
th
in female is empty of planets but aspected by Functional benefic Mars. She has
auspicious strength in her marriage for positive good.
o The 8
th
house of the male chart is unoccupied and is aspected by malefic Mercury. His
emotions could be roused by others in his marriage.
o The 8
th
house of the female chart is the house of Venus also aspected by Mars. The
strength of her marriage union is assured by powerful Mars.

Summary
Based on her 7

the strength of her marriage houses, a successful marriage is thus assured.

A comparison of the couples rasi and marriage charts (Navamsa) follows:
• The Navamsha of the female-person is in the below chart and his Navamsa is on the next page.
o His 7
th
house in rasi -lord Venus is in the 6th house in her Navansha chart. This house
indicates disease’s , accidents or mental afflictions, these problems of the spouse could
become an issue.
o Her 7
th
house ruled by malefic Mercury in her rasi chart is in his 5
th
house Navamsha
aspected by his benefic Mars. This is an auspicious trine house and although Mercury is
a Functional malefic it is strong with BAV at 5 bindus. This brings good results to the
marriage in communications and agreements within the couple’s relationships.

o His 8
th
house in his rasi chart is ruled by Mars.
Mars in her Navamsa chart is in a quadrant and
as a benefic in her rasi now becomes a malefic
meaning there could be disagreements in desires
of both couples even domestic quarrles.
o Her 8
th
house in rasi is ruled by Venus in her
chart is found in his Navamsa Ascendant. Venus
in the Ascendant brings good to marriage;
luxuries, fondness for wife, long life, ambition,
skilled in sexual science, practical, scents and
flowers.
• In the male rasi chart if the lords of the 7
th
and
the 1
st
are friends there will be marital harmony
otherwise not. Venus and Mars are neutrals,
meaning, he can determine the domestic
harmony by will.
• In the male Ashtakavarga chart of Venus the signs Aries (North) and Scorpio (South) have the
greatest number of bindus (5). The bride should come either from the North direction or from
the South direction of the male person’s home. The marriage is said to bring real happiness as
she comes from a home South (Honduras) from him (United States).
• In the male chart Mars aspects Venus in the 8th from Kanya. In the female chart Mars aspects
Venus from his Ascendant in Pisces. Mars is the
strength in marriage and Venus is the happiness and
pleasures in marriage. But Mars abounding in energy
and in association with Venus has a tendancy to
excess of sensual gratification. Therefore it is
necessary in the horoscopes of the couple that Jupiter
provide a benefic steadying effect by its favourable
disposition or in the alternative the aspect takes place
in the constellations of Jupiter, Mercury or even
Venus.
o Venus is in Aries 23:52 in the Constellation
Bharani ruled by Venus. There is a
Mars/Venus interaction of energy experienced
by planets which inhabit or aspect this
asterism remembering that Mars rules Aries.
The female symbol of this constellation is the
yoni, the organ of female reproduction. The
benefic steadying effect of a favourable disposition of a malefic Venus in its own
constellation is not disposed to excessive behavior when aspected by energetic Mars.
119
This is a way of saying that the marriage partner will not be looked upon as an
object of sexual desire but as a co-partner of mutual loving consent in conjugal
relationships. Compatability is thus present in the male chart to a partner for this
parameter.
In the female chart Mars aspects the Su and the Moon in Gemini and Mars and Ketu in Virgo
in the male birth chart. The Sun is in Mrigashira and the Moon in Ardra. Lord Shiva married
Parvati under the star constellation Mrigashira. It is auspicious for both spouses to be married
under this asterism, especially since her temperate Mars beckons marriage to him at this time
by way of her aspect on his Sun (soul) and transit times when the star Mrigashira rises with
Venus inside is a most auspicious time for this marriage.
Bhashya:-
Marriage is a large subject in Vedic Astrology. It provides scientific knowledge in pre-marital
relationships. The high rates of divorce are the result of unions driven by mere material desires
and misconstrued marriage goals. But mostly marriages are not checked for compatability by
Vedic astrologers in the Western nations as they have no system or traditions in marriage
matching through Divine means (of the Vedas). Marriage is really ‘made in heaven’ and the
Divine Union is possible if the rules of Vedic astrology are followed when partners are sought.
However, no one parameter can decide a favourable outcome. No decision can be made until
‘all the votes are in’. Even then to there are challenges between the Vedic Astrologers from
North India and those from South India to which these marriage compatability parameters
come from. This is not disagreement but like the disciples of the Rishes who ask the questions
and the Guru who gives the answers in the Upanishads , truth comes from enquiry and
discussion with an underlying tradition in scripture and philosophy that comes from a
beginningless uninterrupted source - which is the Vedas.

• When Venus, Mars and or Jupiter are in trine {1,5,9} or in 3, 11 positions to each others charts
and the Sun and Moon have similar positions , except {2, 12} it is a favourable position and
strong attachment for the marriage of both.
o Venus is in the 3rd to each other in their rasi charts and the Sun and the Moon are in 1
and 9 to each other, i.e., their Suns are both in the first house to each other and their
Moons are in trine by their 9 houses separation from each other. This is a very
favourable match.


Commentary:-
The human embryo is a reincarnation or development of past stages of life depending on the
merit (poorvapunya) one achieved from each life time, whether from mammals, quadrapeds,
etc. The tendencies of certain animals can predominate in the succeeding life. Some Maharishi
Vedic astrologers of the ancient past, like Sri Mantreswara in his treatise Pala Deepika have
given us a method for determining from a birth chart what type of animal or otherwise one was
from a previous life. Fasinating as it is, it is not relevant here. But the animal symbols assigned
to the nakshatras (constellations) indicate the sexual suitability of partners before marriage.
Thus for example one born in Leo will have the characteristics of a lion, while one born in
Aries will be timid and mild. Remembering that Vedic Astrology is millions of millenniums
old as time itself, as it is an arm of the Vedas, these comparisons of symbols of animals to our
present human form is to be taken seriously in determining what we desire from the
information.
This word ‘caste’ has been much maligned and misunderstood in the West to mean a kind of
degradation of a human. Noting the words of lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita which talks about
the classification of mankind into catagories of natural abilities and temperment: Brahmin,
Ksatriya, Vaisya and Sudra, Lord Krishna advises that it is best if one works within ones natural
120
ability (caste), even if one works perfectly outside of ones ability in another area of seeming
ability. Meaning it is stressful to perform ones duty if it is not natural to do so. Performing
karmayoga or devotional performance of our natural abilities to the Divine Mother acting as her
instrument is Dharma, our duty. He therefore says we cannot perform activities properly and with
full consciousness if we are not following our natural born temperments. These mental
temperaments or vasanas come from the sum of all of our previous lives. This is called the Law of
Karma. Classifiying all living being into the varnas or castes notifies one of where ones duty lies.
Lord Rama performed his duty as a Kshatriya – warrior and king. Others do so as priests, gurus,
etc. It is advisable for a man to marry in his caste as determined by astrological principles.
Remember, ones ability comes from the sum of all past lives and Vedic Astrologers are able to tell
what class one is from: Priestly, Noble, Merchant or Worker. Thus if he is a priest he may marry
all classes of women . But if he is a Merchant for example he may only marry a women from the
Merchant (Vaisya) or Worker (Sudra) class if he wants his marriage to succeed; and so on. If a
woman, she may marry up but never down the classification scale. These Laws of Manu are made
to prevent misery and perfect harmony in our society.
However, as one moves up the ladder of classifications by performing worship, penance, spiritual
knowledge and meditation one’s caste is elevated to higher consciousness, even in the same life
time. Thus many Saints whose charts showed that at birth they were Sudras, ended their lives as
Brahmins, performing as Gurus and priests in the temples and ashrams. Continuing with this
comparison test, however the base class at birth will be used.
The Brahmins come from the Ascendent in the houses: Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer; Kshatriyas:
Leo, Saggitarius and Libra; Vaisya: Aries, Gemini and Aquarius; Sudra: Taurus, Virgo and
Capricorn or use Rishi Jaimini’s rules. By Jaimini’s Rules - caste is from the 11
th
house ruler from
lord of the Ascendant. Result of example:

Timing of Wedding Summary: -
As no serious conditions exit in the analysed chart of both couples the time of marriage is the most
important, if not the most important parameter in marriage.

Annual Solar Return
By Vishveshvara
The methods of Kalidasa as outlined in his work Uttara Kalamrita is a simpler method than that of
the Tajaka system of astrologers like Nilakantha. The Tajaka system was probably Arabic in origin
and known as a Yavanesvara (non-Hindu) work to which Sphujidhvaja was the most famous
Yavanesvara. Other Yavanesvara’s were ancient Greek philosophers and astrologers like Ptolemy
and Manittha. They were all taught by the Indian Vedic astrologers. Western influences of non-
Vedic character crept in when the minds of the followers of the Yavanesvara’s turned away from
the East and turned toward the West and materialistic cultures.

From: Uttara Kalamrita-by Kalidasa
Sutra 6.34 and 6.35 from
Note the exact position of the Sun at the time of birth. In any year find when the Sun returns to the
same degree, minute and second. That is the solar return day of the year for the native. Calculate
the lagna and the positions of the planets and houses for that time of the year. Calculate the Sapta
Vargas (Rasi, Hora, Drekkana, Saptamsa, Navamsa, Dvadasamsa and Trimsamsa) strength of each
planet. The results show what will happen to the native during that solar year. Count from the natal
star (janma nakshatra) the constellation in which the Moon is located on that day. Divide this by 9
[ exterpolate multiples of 9]. The remainder is counted from the Sun in the order given in the next
verse. This gives the first dasa for the solar year.
Note the exact position of the Moon at the time of the Sun’s return to the position at the time of
birth. Find out how many more ghatikas and vighatikas are yet to elapse in that constellation. This is to
be multiplied by the number of days given to the planet and divided by the total duration of the
constellation i.e. 800 minutes. This gives the balance of the first dasa in days, ghatikas and vighatikas.
Then follow the other dasas in the sequence given below.
The days in serial order are:
Su- 110, Mo- 60, Ma-32, Me- 40, Ju– 48, Ve- 56, Sa– 4, Ra– 5 and Lagna- 10 .
The subsequent dasas follow this sequence only.
The benefic or malefic results of any dasa are to be interpreted with reference to the strength of the
planet concerned, the strength of the lagna for the year, the strength of the Bhava having the
planet, and the various aspects on the various planets and houses.

Example Charts : 2009-1-27
Only the narayana (sidereal) position of the Sun at birth is used.
Calculating the Sapta Varga’s is a time-consuming process but has excellent results as scholars have
found using Kalidasa’s method of Solar Return. Using the strength of the planets in the 7 divisions and
the predictions that follow for the given year will yield the predictive results. There appears to be no
computer programs available which can do these calculations.
Besides the Table of Mutual Relationships given, kthere are Temporary Relationships for each planet
from the natal place it is situated.
A review of how to find the Mutual Relationships is helpful before the Temporal Relationships can be
found. First note the mulatrikona of a planet. Counting from there the planets in the sequence
{2, 12, 5, 9, 4, 8} signs from that sign are friends of that planet (use the lord of sign as the planet). But
such a sign must own two planets i.e within the above sequence. If not, that lord of the sign in the
sequence becomes its neutral. The exceptions are Ravi and Chandra as they own only one sign. Thus
they can never be a neutral. The planets that are not in the sequence from the natal planet in question
are that planets enemy, with the exception that if they are mulatrikona or exalted they become neutral.
How to find Temporal Relationships: There are temporary friendships for each planet from the place it
is situated. Planets in the sequence {2, 3, 4, 10, 11, 12} from a planets transit (tajaka) natal position
Kalidasa’s Theorem :
(i) Distance of natal Moon in Rohini to tajaka Moon in Dhanishtha = 20
(ii) 20/9= 2 2/9; R=2 ; Moon is selected from sequence and has 60 full dasa days.
Balance of Moon Days; Dasa Sequence
(i) 800 Minutes span a constellation ; 13:20 degrees per constellation
(ii) Moon in Makara 28:56 , Nakshatra: Dhanishtha 23Cap20-6Aqu39
(iii) Balance of Nakshatra in degrees: 28:56-23:20= 5:36-degrees; 13.33- 5.60 = 7.73
(iv) Balance of Nakshatra in minutes: 800/13.33= x/ 7.73 ; 464.10 minutes
(v) Balance of Moon days in 1
st
Dasa: [464.10/800]*60= 34.81 days
(vi) Sequence : Mo-35, Ma-32, Me-40, Ju-48, Ve-56, Sa-4, Ra-5, As-10, Su-110 days.
(vii) Dasa: Mo: 2009-1-27/2009-3-3; Ma: 2009-3-4/2009-4-4; Me: 2009-4-5/2009-5-14;
Ju: 2009-5-15/2009-7-1; Ve: 2009-7-2/2009-8-26; Sa: 2009-8-27/2009-8-30;
Ra: 2009-8-31/2009-9-4; As: 2009-9-5/2009-9-14; Su: 2009-9-15/2010-1-2

are its temporary friend; the temporary enemy is thus {1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 }. Combining those in the
sequence with the natural (Mutual Relationships) will give the results of the sixfold relationships

Analysis of Data:
The strongest planet is Venus and the period 2009-7-2 /2009-8-26, was very favourable to the native.
Health was no longer an issue, personal relations were good, another grandson was born, and finances
were steady. The temple building site was to begin during this period.
Interesting, was the previous strongest planet Mars and its period. This time was a building up of
physical well-being using ayurvedic herbal treatment and panchakarma, this after the Moons period
saw surgic removal of a skin mole basil cell melanoma and lumbago problems. By the time the Venus
period started all health problems cleared up. The method of Solar Return by Kalidasa has a lot of
merit.


Kalidasa’s Sutras:
• Sutra 6.38 [F] = favourable; [UF]=unfavourable
Surya - [F] If the Su is strong during his period there will be the acquisition of money, ornaments and
clothes. [UF] if he is not strong, sins and foes, money is lost, and many troubles and sufferings appear.
E Su is of weakest strength - 9
th
place out of 9.
Chandra- [F] if the Mo is strong during his period one has royal favour, an ever increasing wealth and
honour. [UF] but if he is weak there is an increase of enemies. The native suffers from disease, is
unhappy by wandering or changing the place, and has quarrels with his own relatives.
E Mo is of good strength – 3
rd
place out of 9.
• Sutra 6.39
Kuja - [F] when Ma is strong one is favoured by the King (Society), has success and is happy during
his period.[UF] if he is weak one has the fear of the king [government], has quarrels with his own sons
and enmity with his/her spouse.
E Ma is of powerful strength – 2
nd
place out of 9.
Budha- [F] when Me is strong, the native is valorous, has benefic results, is extremely happy, and has
many gains.[UF] but if Me is weak there are misunderstandings or enmity with brothers and the like.
He/she will follow evil or sinful ways and prove trecherous to the Brahmanas.
E Me is of ordinary strength – 5
th
place out of 9.
• Sutra 6.40
Guru- [F] if Ju is strong during his period one has vehicles and wealth. [UF] if he is weak one
wanders from place to place, has loss of memory, takes the evil ways and evil associations.
E Ju is of weak strength – 7
th
place out of 9.
Sukra- [F] if Ve is strong during his period there is amassing of wealth along with fame, white or
refined clothes and happiness from his wife or women. [UF] if he is weak he faces loss of wealth, fear
from foes, bad name and diseases through contact with women.



126

E Ve is of powerful strength- 1
st
place out of 9.
Sani- [F] during the period of a strong Sa one has a house and other forms of happiness. He will be a
leader. [UF] if he is weak the person faces loss of weaslth, emaciation of the body, diseases and a bad
name.
E Sa is of weak strength- 8
th
place out of 9.
Rahu- [F] during the period of a strong Ra the native performs virtuous and good acts, has gains, does
good things and finds a rise in his profession. [UF] if he is a malefic there are inauspicious results,
death of the father, and has associations with bad ones and with his foes
Ra is of good strength- 4
th
place out of 9.
Lagna -During the period of the lagna the results are good, average and bad according to the nature of
the drekkana of the lagna, association of the lord of the lagna, and the yoga formed by the lord of
lagna.
As (Ascendant) is average – 6
th
place out of 9. The Drekkana (D-3) of the Lagna has Astakavarga
of 31. Venus and Moon are in a kendra to the Lagna and Mars is in the auspicious 9
th
. The lord of
lagna is Guru in the inauspicious 6
th
with Rahu. But the effects of this sign may get cancelled as
this bhava is the Shree Lagna (SL). In that case the Dasa will be favourable from 2009-9-5/2009-9-
14.
“Thus we have given the annual results in a brief but elegant way, of the various planets and lagna.
Taking into consideration the strength or weakness of the planets based on their association with
the benefics, the wise one should predict the results.” –Kalidasa (16
th
century).
Notes: The Jagannatha 7.32 program Tajaka strengths are closest to the above method using the
Pancha-Vargeeya table in part. The Dasas differ widely. Use whatever method gives the best results.

Rasi’s
Odd and Even

1. Ar, Ge, Le, Li, Sg and Aq are called odd rasis or vishama rasis or oja rasis. They are also
known as male rasis.
2. Ta, Cn, Vi, Sc, Cp and Pi are called even rasis or sama rasis or yugma rasis. They are also
known as female rasis.
This division is used in some dasas and in the determination of the sex of children.

Movable, Fixed and Dual Signs

1. Ar, Cn, Li and Cp are known as chara rasis or movable rasis. They are ruled by Brahma, the
Creator. Their nature is to move and to be dynamic.
2. Ta, Le, Sc and Aq are known as sthira rasis or fixed rasis. They are ruled by Shiva, the
Destroyer. Their nature is to be stable and constant.
3. Ge, Vi, Sg and Pi are known as dwiswabhava rasis or dual rasis. They are ruled by Vishnu, the
Sustainer.They are stable sometimes and dynamic sometimes.
Five Elements

According to Hindu philosophy, this world is made up of 5 elements – fire, water, air, earth and ether.
Water is a substance with a flexible state. Air is a substance with a varying state. Earth is a substance
with a constant and solid state. Fire is a substance that transforms the state of things. Ether is
something that is present everywhere.

1. Ar, Le and Sg are called agni rasis or fiery rasis.
2. Ta, Vi and Cp are called bhu rasis or earthy rasis.
3. Ge, Li and Aq are called vaayu rasis or airy rasis.
4. Cn, Sc and Pi are called jala rasis or watery rasis.
5. The 5th element of aakaasa or ether is present in every rasi.

128
Exalted, Mulatrikona and Debilitated Planets

Each planet has a sign where it is exalted (uchcha), a sign where it is debilitated (neecha), a sign that is
called its moolatrikona and one or two rasis that are owned by it. A planet is said to be strong in its
own rasi or exaltation rasi or moolatrikona.
Table 3 shows own rasis, exaltation rasis, the degree of deep exaltation, debilitation rasi, the degree of
deep debilitation and the moolatrikona of each planet.

Table 3: Dignities of Planets
Planet Own Exaltation Debilitation Moolatrikona
Sun Le Ar (10º) Li (10º) Le
Moon Cn Ta (3º) Sc (3º) Ta
Mars Ar & Sc Cp (28º) Cn (28º) Ar
Mercury Ge & Vi Vi (15º) Pi (15º) Vi

Venus Ta & Li Pi (27º) Vi (27º) Li
Saturn Cp & Aq Li (20º) Ar (20º) Aq
Rahu Aq Ge Sg Vi
Ketu Sc Sg Ge Pi

Some special points regarding the results given by planets:
1. Sun gives the results of being in moolatrikona in the first 20º of Le and the results of being in own rasi in the
remaining 10º.
2. Moon gives the results of being in exaltation rasi in the first 3º of Ta and the results of being in moolatrikona in
the remaining 27º.
3. Mars gives the results of being in moolatrikona in the first 12º of Le and the results of being in own rasi in the
remaining 18º.
4. Mercury gives the results of being in exaltation rasi in the first 15º of Vi, the results of being in moolatrikona in
the next 5º and the results of being in own rasi in the remaining 10º.
5. Jupiter gives the results of being in moolatrikona in the first 10º of Sg and the results of being in own rasi in the
remaining 20º.
6. Venus gives the results of being in moolatrikona in the first half of Li and the results of being in own rasi in the
second half of Li.
7. Saturn gives the results of being in moolatrikona in the first 20º of Aq and the results of being in own rasi in the
remaining 10º.













Natural Relationships




Vargas (Divisional Charts) –
The divisional charts play an important part in predictions. There are 16 vargas. Ten are generally considered.
• Lagna – General well being, nature, constitution.
- rasi : the lord of sign where lagna is situated is the lord of that rasi.
• Hora – wealth; divide a sign into two equal parts (D2).
- Odd: The first half of an odd sign is ruled by the Su. The second half by the Mo.
- Even : The first half of an even sign is ruled by the Mo. The second half by the Su.
• Drekkana- siblings ; divide a sign into three equal parts of 10-deg. each (D3).
- The 1
st
decante is ruled by the lord of that sign.
- The 2
nd
by the lord of the 5
th
from it.
- The last by the owner of the 9
th
from it.
• Navamsa – the spouse’s chart (D9).
• Dvadasamsa – the parents chart, higher consciousness, past and future lives (D12).
• Trimsamsa- troubles and sorrows, some diseases (D30).
• Saptamsa- children (D7).
• Dasamsa-profession (D10).
• Shasthamsa-health and diseases (D6).
• Ashtamsa-longevity (D8).
129



















































Aspects :
All planets aspect the seventh from
where they are posited by 100% power.
In addition Kuja (Mars), Guru (Jupiter)
and Shani (Saturn) have special aspects.
Kuja aspects 4 and 8 from his natal
position. Guru aspects 5 and 9, Shani
aspects 3 and 10. Actually all planets
aspect 3,4,5,7,8,9,10 and 11 from where
they are positied.

The aspect on 3 and 10 is a quarter; on 5
and 9 it is half; on 4 and 8 it is three-
quarters and on the seventh it is full.
Rahu aspects on 5, 7, 9 and 12 is full;
at 2 and 10 it is half; and on 3 and 6 it is
quarter. Shani has a shadowy aspect on
2 and 12, while Guru has it on 3 and 11.
Note: A constellation is called a
Nakshatra( lunar mansion) in Sanskrit.

SHADABALA
The 6 kinds of planetary strength
recognized under the Parashari
system of Vedic astrology.These are:
(i) Sthanbala, or positional strength,
(ii) Dikbala, or directional strength,
(iii) Kabbala, or temporal strength,
(iv)Chestabala,or motional strength,
(v) Naisargikabala, or inherent
strength, and
(vi) Drikabala, or the strength
derived from aspects of planets.
Zodiac- It is a band in heavens extending to 9-degrees on each side of the
ecliptic. This is called Bhachakra. It contains all the twelve signs. It revolves
on its axis once a day. The planets and the moon move within this belt.
Ecliptic- It is the path of the Sun. It passes through the centre of the Zodiac.
It is a great circle cutting the celestial equator at an angle of 23 ½-degrees.
This angle varies from 21-degrees 59’ to 24-degrees 36’.
Mutual Relationships (Friends , Enemies etc) of Planets & Exultation, Mulatrakona, Debilitation in degrees:

Note: The debilitation sign is 180-degress away from the exalted sign. Planets 2, 12, 5, 9, 4 and 8 signs from that sign
are friends of that planet.But such a planet must own two houses. If it owns only one sign it is neutral (sama). The
exceptions are the Sun and the Moon because they own only one sign each. If houses 2, 12, 5, 9, 4 and 8 are not owned by
any, such a planet is its enemy.

Retrograde planets by Kalisada -
Retrogression gives greater Chesta-bala. A planet in retrograde has the
strength of that of exultation. A retrograde planet in his debilitation has the
strength of exultation. When a retrograde planet is exalted in Rasi and debilitated
in Navamsha it is debilitated and has no strength. Also the debilitation gets
cancelled when such a planet is associated in the same sign with an exalted one.
If that planet is conjunct with a debilitated planet it stays debilitated.
These rules are from Uttara Kalamrita chapter 2 sutra 5- by Kalidasa.

• The debilitation of Ve is cancelled if it is with Me. Also: Su with Sa,
Ma with Ju .
• Debilitation gets cancelled if a planet in that sign is in square to Mo.

Aspects
Conjunction- when two celestial bodies
are in the same longitude.
Opposition- when two celestial bodies are
180-degrees apart.
Trine- when they are 120-degrees or 240-
degrees away.
Square – when they are 90-degrees or
270-degrees apart.
Sextile- 60-degrees or 300-degrees.
• conjunction and opposition cover 8-
degrees before or after the longitude
values.
• Trine or square cover 8-degrees.
• Ascendant or M.C. have 5-degrees.
• Sextile covers 6-degrees
Summary of Benefic and Malefic Houses :
The lords of trines from Lagna are functional benefics { 1, 5, 9 }.
The lord of the 8
th
house from a Bhava, the lord of the 22
nd
Drekkana from that
cusp, and those situated in the 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
houses (= Dusthana houses)
from that Bhava are likely to give malefic results as far as that Bhava (the dasa
period) is concerned.
The lords of a Kendra (=1, 4, 7, 10 houses) is a Functional Malefic if he is a
natural benefic and Functionally Neutral if he is a natural malefic.
The lords of the papasthana houses (=3, 6, 11) are Functional Malefics.
Benefic planets in the papasthana houses become Functional Malefics. Malefic
planets in these houses become Functional Benefics (they will bring about
favourable results).
Benefic planets in the Trines and Kendras of a Bhava will bring about
favourable results. Malefic planets (Mars, Sun, Saturn, waning Moon) in these
houses is not good, unless it is very strong (5 bindus or more or greater than
the strength of the lords of those houses.)
Lord of the Lagna- is both lord of a Quadrant and a Trine. It will give good
results irrespective of it’s inherent nature. Planets are thus subservient to the
Lagna. If it is not only the lord of the ascendant, but also of a malefic house
like the 6
th
or 8
th
, its character of a benefic remains because of its ownership of
the 1
st
.
Dusthana houses {6, 8, 12} When the lord of a Bhava is in the 6
th
, 8
th
, or 12
th

house from it, or when the bhava is occupied by the lord of any of these houses
it suffers. This principle has to be modified considerably when such a planet is
associated with or aspected by a benefic, or is exalted. While these houses,
their lords, as well as the planets that associate with these houses and their
lords are productive of adverse results, they are particularly adverse in relation
to health. 6- indicates disease and accidents; 8 – cronic disease , incurable
disease or death ; 12- suffering, hospitalisation.

Longevity

Jaimini’s Methods : from Jaimini Sutram

Sthira Dasa

Jaimini called this dasa Sthira
because the number of years in each
dasa is fixed. This dasa is important
in fixing also the time of death.
• Movable signs {1, 4, 7, 10} –
chara - have a duration of 7
years each.
• Fixed signs {2, 5, 8, 11} –
sthira - have a duration of 8
years each.
• Common signs {3, 6, 9, 12}-
dvisvabhava -have a duration
of 9 years each.

+ The Sthira dasa starts from the sign where Brahma is located.
- When Brahma is an odd sign, the dasas follow the clkwise pattern
- When Brahma is an even sign the dasas follow the anti-clkwise pattern.
⇒ Example Chart : Brahma is Me. This is an odd sign so the sequence is clkwise. Me
in Kumbha is a fixed sign: 02:15. For 8 years this is 30-degrees.
Thus: (2.25/30)*8= 0.6 years
- Thus in Janma Rasi each planetary transverse and sign is totaled from the 12 signs to give an age of
longevity.
- As there are 12 signs, there are 12 antardasas in each dasa.
- The sub-periods of movable, fixed, and common signs have a duration of 7, 8, 9
months
- The antardasas of a sign are clkwise if odd sign or anti-clkwise if even sign.








Rule:-
• For Clockwise rotation : use x- longitude value (unchanged) when Brahman is odd.
• For Anticlockwise rotation: use (30-x) longitude value when Brahman is even.








Calculate Brahma:
E Example: in D-1 chart , the strongest sign between Lagna (27 SAV) Mesha and the 7
th
sign Tula (30 SAV) is Tula .
The lords of the 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
(from Tula) are : Ju, Ve and Me; counting is clkwise as Tula is in an odd sign. Me
is the strongest, behind the lagna (7
th
-12
th
signs) and in an odd sign (Kumbha). Brahma is Me. Sa is the
Atmakaraka.

Trikona Dasa
Sutra 3.4.22 : now the Trikona dasa is being explained. In Sutras 1.1.25 and 26 it is said that in the
case of odd signs the counting is clockwise and that in the even signs the counting is anti-clockwise.
Sutra 1.1.27 stated that this principle does not apply sometimes:
According as the sign in question belongs to the Vishamapada or Samapada group, the years given
by a sign are derived by counting in the clockwise or anit-clockwise manner. The numner of rasis
intervening between the sign under consideration and its lord give us the years. (thus maximum of
12-years per sign ). This is the same as the method of Chara dasa. There we divided by 30-degrees
( for 1-year) into the total degrees given to the distance from a sign under consideration to its lord,
taking into consideration the sign’s grouping.
i. The exceptions are in the case of Simha and Kumbha which follow anti-clockwise
sequence, and the case of Vrischika and Vrishaba which have a clockwise
sequence.
ii. the Vrishamapada–odd group of signs thus are : {1,2,3,7,8,9} follow clockwise;
iii. the Samapada–even group of signs are : {4,5,6,10,11,12} follow anti-clockwise.

If the 1
st
dasa rasi belongs to the Vishama pada group, the subsequent dasas will be those of
133
the signs: 5, 9, 2, 6, 10, 3, 7, 11, 4, 8, and 12 from it in this order.
o For example if Vrischika is the strongest trinal sign that is no. 1 in the above sequence-
clkwise to its lord; the 5
th
from that sign (Vrischika) is Meena –anticlkwise to its lord; the
9
th
sign is Karka-anticlkwise to its lord; the 2
nd
from that sign (Vrischika) is Dhanush-
clkwise to its lord; the 6
th
from that sign is Mesha-anticlkwise to its lord; the 10
th
from
that sign is Simha-anticlkwise to its lord; the 3
rd
is Makara-anticlkwise to its lord; the 7
th

is Vrishaba-clkwise to its lord; the 11
th
is Kanya-anticlkwise to its lord; the 4
th
is
Kumbha-anticlkwise to its lord; the 8
th
is Mithunia-clkwise to its lord; the 12
th
is Tula-
clkwise to its lord. Hence the sequence {1,5,9,2,6,10,3,7,11,4,8,12} is satisfied.

If the 1
st
dasa belongs to a sign of the samapada group, the subsequent dasas will be those of
the signs 1, 9, 5, 12, 8, 4, 11, 7, 3, 10, 6 and 2 from it.
Example:
The strongest trinal sign from the Lagna ( 1
st
, 5
th
and 9
th
) is the 1
st
at 27 SAV+2-planets, the sequence is
clockwise starting from Mesha. The sequence of signs is: Mesha, 5, 9, 2, 6, 10, 3, 7, 11, 4, 8, and 12 from
it in this order. Mesha, Simha , Dhanush, Vrishabha, Kanya , Makara, Mithunia, Tula, Kumbha, Karka,
Vrischika, Meena.
1-from Mesha to its lord Kuja in Mesha is Lagna-clkwise to Kuja= (15:03)/30=0.5016 years
5-from Simha to its lord who is Ravi in Makara-anti-clockwise, the distance is :
[7*30+30-14:02 (Sun)]/30 = 7.5322 years
9- from Dhanush to its lord Guru-clkwise, the distance is:
[5*30+18:28 (Ju)]/30 = 5.6155 years
2-from Vrishabha to its lord Sukra-clkwise, the distance is:
[8*30+23:50 (Ve)]/30 = 8.7944
6-from Kanya to its lord Budha-anticlkwise, the distance is:
[7*30+30-02:15 (Me)]/30 = 7.925 years
10-from Makara to its lord Shani-anticlkwise, the distance is:
[9*30 + 30-28:36 (Sa)]/30 = 9.0466 years
3-from Mithunia to its lord Budha-clkwise, the distance is:
[8*30+02:15 (Me)]/30 = 8.075 years
7-from Tula to its lord Sukra-clkwise, the distance is:
[3*30+ 23:50 (Ve)]/30 = 3.7944 years
11-from Kumbha to its lord Shani-anticlkwise, the distance is:
[10*30+ 30-28:36 (Sa)]/30= 10.0466 years
4-from Karka to its lord Chandra-anticlkwise, the distance is:
[2*30+30-20:42 (Mo)]/30 = 2.31 years
8-from Vrischika to its lord Kuja-clkwise, the distance is:
[5*30+ 15:03 (Ma)]/30 = 5.5016 years
12- from Meena to its lord Guru – anticlkwise, the distance is :
[10*30+30-18:28 (Ju)]/30 = 10.3844 years
Total = 79.5273 years - Indications are that Sthira Dasa is more accurate.

Sri Varahamihira Method
Span of life from - Brihat Jatak
Tables and Formulae by Visvesvaran – Computer Program by S. Sanmugunathan
Sloka 7.1.0
Ancient masters like Maya, Yavanacharya, Manithacharya, Shakti, Parasara etc have laid down as
under the maximum number of years for the maximum exalted strength of the various planets as the
years of longevity contributed by them in a birth chart :
Sloka 7.1.1 when a planet is in its maximum degree of exultation its span to a natives life is in table 1.
Longevity in Birth Chart from Exalted Planets in Maximum Degree of Longevity=Table 1
Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn
19 25 15 12 15 21 20
Sloka 7.2.0 When a planet is in its maximum degree of debilitation its span to a natives life is in table
2.
Longevity in Birth Chart from Debilitated Planets= Table 2
Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn
9.5 12.5 7.5 6 7.5 10.5 10
Sloka 7.2.1 But when a planet is between exultation and debilitation than in the intermediate position a
planet contributes its span of life to a native proportionally.
Sloka 7.2.2 In this scheme of determining span of life the ascendant also contributes life years. A
navamsa (3:20-degrees) of ascendant elapsed is equal to 1-year of life contributed, fraction of a
navamsa giving the months etc. proportionally.

* Planets in Sign of an Enemy :
take 1/3 off the years given in above tables except when exalted or in retrogression, then
the full years of longevity remain.
* Planets in Combustion :
Take ½ off the years given in the above tables except when Venus or Saturn are combust,
then the full years of longevity remain for these two planets.

* Satyacharya’s View:
In case any one of these six houses is occupied by two or more planets, whether malefics or
benefics or mixed ones, only one of them who is the strongest will lose as a malefic or a
benefic. A waning Moon and a weak Mercury conjoined to a malefic, is normally considered
as a malefic i.e. Mercury, but in this context these two planets would be treated as natural
benefics and would lose as benefics if placed in the stipulated houses.

Years of Loss for Lagna with a Malefic Planet
Sutra 7.4.0
Find the number of navamshas in the lagna (divide the numerical longitude of the Ascendant by
3.3333) .Multiply the result by number of proportional years (base years) contributed by a natural
malefic in lagna and divide it by 108 (the total no. of navamsas in the 12 signs). The result would
be the number of years lost by the natural malefic located in the lagna.

Formula: As_loss= (L/3.3333)*(B_malefic planet/108)
Where L= numeric longitude of planet; B=base years of malefic planet

Example chart below: Years loss in As=02:56; 2.9333/3.3333=0.8800;
0.8800*11.7895(Mars)/108=0.0960 years lost

If the natural malefic planet is aspected by a benefic it will lose only ½ of the calculated loss in
years.
Note: in case there are 2 or more than 2 natural malefic planets in the lagna, the process of
calculation of the loss should be undertaken only in respect of a single malefic planet that is
nearest to the longitude of the lagna.
× Notes: The following formulas can be used to find the base years for each planet in a birth chart.
The rotation is clockwise or anticlockwise determined from the sign of exultation to the planet to
its debilitation sign.

Calculating Strength of Planets and Signs in Jaimini
System

Strength of Signs:

Sutra 2.3.6 : the first source of strength for a sign is the placement of karaka (Atmakaraka
Strength) in it.
Sutra 2.3.7: the more the planets are with a given planet, the greater the strength of the sign
(Sthira Strength).
Sutra 2.3.9: next we have the permanent source of strength (Chara Strength).
Sutra 2.3.14: the second source of strength for a sign arises if it is aspected by its own lord, by
Ju, or by Me, or if it is associated by any of these (Aspect Strength).
Notes: In Jaimini’s system there is no distinction between a sign (rasi) and a house (bhava).
The calculation of strengths is very simple in this system:
E The Atmakaraka is the most important planet in this system. The sign where he is situated becomes
strong.
E A sign having a planet is stronger than one having none.
E The sign with the larger number of planets is stronger than the one having a smaller number.
E A signs strength is determined by :
Movable (chara) - { 1, 4, 7, 10}
Fixed (sthira) - {2, 5, 8, 11}
Dual or common (dvisvabhava) - { 3, 6, 9, 12}
E A sign becomes stronger when it has Ju, Me, or its own lord, or when it is aspected by any of these
three.
E Note the sign in the natal chart where the Atmakaraka is located.
E The Strength of a Sign is finally determined by 4- factors.
* Chara strength
A movable sign - 0.25 unit
A fixed sign - 0.50 unit
A common sign – 1.00 unit
* Sthira strength
A sign having no planet ( Ra and Ke included) - 0.00 unit
A sign with 1 planet – 1.00 unit
A sign with 2 planets – 1.25 unit
A sign with x-planets = (x –2)/4 + 1.25 (units)
A sign having 8 planets – 2.75 units
* Aspect Strength
A sign with its own lord in it, Ju, Me, or aspected by Ju or Me, 1- unit of strength. If all three
aspect the sign, 3-units of strength.
* Atmakaraka
1unit of strength for having Atmakaraka in it.

Strength Of Planets

O The Strength of a Planet is determined by 3- factors:
1. Amsa strength
This depends on the longitudes of the planets in a sign. It refers to the karaka and their strength is to
be calculated as per the karaka strength below.
2. Mulatrikona strength
This is given below.
139
3. The third source is the Kendra, Panaphara and Apoklima positions of the planet from the
sign occupied by the Atmakaraka.
* Mulatrikona Strength:
Sutra 2.3.8 : exaltation and others are the next source of strength.
· 1.00 = exaltation
· 0.75 = mulatrikona
· 0.5= own house
· 0.375 = friends house
· 0.25= neutral house
· 0.125 = house of foe
· 0.0625 = debilitation

* Kendra Strengths :
Sutra 2.3.16 : the planets in the Kendras, Panapharas and Apoklimas from the Atmakaraka
have declining strength.
· The planets in {1, 4, 7, 10} from Ak have 1-unit of strength.
· The planets in {2, 5, 8, 11} from Ak have 0.5 - unit of strength.
· The planets in { 3, 6, 9, 12} from Ak have 0.25 – unit of strength.

O The various karakas have the following strengths: (the higest longitude to the lowest is given
following values)

* Amsa Strenghts are :
Sutra 2.3.11 : the planet which has advanced to the higest number of degrees and minutes is the
most powerful.
· Atmakaraka – 1.0
We can read about the general health, constitution, nature, outlook and fortune of the
native.
· Amatya – 0.75
Refers to the intellect and mind.
· Bhrathru – 0.50
Refers to a Guru, brothers and sisters
· Matra – 0.375
Indicates the mother
· Putra- 0.25
About children
· Jnati – 0.125
About relatives
· Dara- 0.0625

Calculating Jaimini’s Symbolic Figures on Death

Calculating death under Jaimini is unconventional and involved. The results are however excellent.
Finding the Symbolic Figures involves many factors. There are conditional relationships that need
noting if one is to find the correct symbolic planets that signifies, Brahma, Mahesvara and Rudra.

Significators of Death - Brahma:
Sutra 2.1.49: find who is the strongest amongst the lords of the 6
th,
8
th
and 12
th
house from lagna
and from the seventh house. The planet behind this strongest one is to be considered. If that is an
odd sign he is designated as Brahma.
Sutra 2.1.50: if Sa, Ra or Ke becomes Brahman, then take the 6
th
from them as Brahma.
Notes: Thus if Sa becomes Brahma, the 6
th
from him is Kuja. [Days of the week start with the
Su, Mo, Ma, Me, Ju, Ve, Sa, Ra, Ke]

Sutra 2.1.51: if more than one comes out as Brahma, take the one who has the highest number of
degrees in the sign.
Sutra 2.1.52: in the case of Rahu consider his degrees and minutes by deducting them from thirty
degrees.
Sutra 2.1.53: the lord of the 8
th
from AK and the one occupying the 8
th
can be Brahma.

Notes:
1.
o First determine whether As is stronger or the 7
th
house.
o From the stronger house, note the lords of the 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
house.
o Note who is the strongest among these. He should be behind. This means , if the lagna is
stronger than the 7
th
, the planet should be in the signs from 7
th
to 12
th
of lagna. If the 7
th
is
stronger, it should be in signs 1 to 6 from lagna. And if the sign is an odd sign it can be
Brahma.
2.
o If this Brahma happens to be Sa, Ra or Ke, then count the 6
th
planet from the concerned one-
the sequence is that of the week days followed by Ra and Ke. (viz. weekdays- Su, Mo, Ma,
Me, Ju, Ve, Sa, Ra, Ke)
o This 6
th
planet becomes the true Brahma.
o If there are 2 or more such planets qualified for this position, take the one who is more
advanced as per the degrees and minutes; and he becomes Brahma.
3.
o The lord of the 8
th
from the Atmakaraka (in rasi) can be Brahma.
o The planets occupying the 8
th
from the Atmakaraka can also be Brahma.
o If any candidates are found take the one who is advanced in degrees in the sign.
o If the Brahmas have the same advanced degrees, the one in a stronger sign, becomes Brahma.

Sutra 2.1.55 : longevity extends from the sign occupied by Brahma to the dasa period of the sign
occupied by Mahesvara.
Sutra 2.1.56 : even in the Sthira dasa of the sign occupied by Brahma, take the lord of the 8
th
from
Mahesvara sign. The signs in trine (kona) to him will be the sub-period when death takes place in
the period of the sign occupied by Mahesvara.
Sutra 2.1.57 : from the Ak or Janma lagna take the lords of the 3
rd
, 8
th
, and 12
th
houses. The
strongest of these brings about death.

141
Notes: in all these cases we have to determine first the term (kakshya) of life as short,
middle and long. Then we have to find the sign causing maraka.

Sutra 2.1.58 : of the death inflicting planets generally the lord of the 6
th
(Chittanatha) causes death.

Notes: this can be 6
th
from from the janma lagna or the Ak.

Sutra 2.1.60 : even in the periods of the signs connected with the death inflicting planets, the sub-
periods wll be those of the signs occupied by the lords of the 6
th
, 8
th
, and 12
th
counted from the 7
th

of janma lagna or AK.



Significators of Death – Mahesvara :
Sutra 2.1.46 : the lord of the 8
th
from AK is called Mahesvara.
Sutra 2.1.47 when the Ak is exalted or in his own house, then note who is stronger among the lords
of the 8
th
and the 12
th
from AK. The stronger one will then be Mahesvara.
Sutra 2.1.48: when the AK is with Rahu or Ketu, or when Ra or Ke is in the 8
th
from AK, then find
out the lord of the 8
th
from AK. He then becomes Mahesvara.


Significators of Death – Rudra :
Sutra 2.1.35 : whoever is stronger among the lords of the 8
th
house from lagna and the 7
th
house is
know as Rudra.

Notes : i.e. from the lords of the 2
nd
and the 8
th
houses from lagna , who is stronger?

Sutra 2.1.36 : even the weaker one can become Rudra, if he is aspected by a malefic.
Sutra 2.1.37 :If the stronger one who is Rudra is aspected by a benefic, the longevity is up to the
end of Shula dasa.

Notes: Shula rasi’s are the trikona signs {1, 5, 9}. If one has a short life, death comes before
the period (dasa) of 5
th
sign from Rudra begins. If it is medium life, death is between the
periods of the 5
th
and the 8
th
signs from Rudra. If there is long life, death is in the period of the
9
th
to the 12
th
signs. Or one can mean merely the period of the 1
st
, 5
th
and 9
th
signs from Rudra
respectively.

Sutra 2.1.38: even when the weaker Rudra is aspected by a benefic and is with a benefic, longevity
extends up to the end of Shula rasi period.
Sutra 2.1.39:The above result is not to be predicted if a malefic other than the Sun is associated
with the condition mentioned in the previous sutra.

Notes: the Su must be in conjunction or aspect with the 1
st
, 5
th
or 9
th
signs for the Shula rasi
periods to be predicted

Sutra 2.1.42 : Sometimes death can take place in the period of the sign occupied by Rudra. It can
even be in the sub-period of this sign.
Sutra 2.1.43 : when the lagna is Meena (Pisces), death will definitely take place in the major and
minor periods of the signs occupied by Rudra.
Sutra 2.1.44 : if Rudra is in the 8
th
from lagna death generally comes in the period and subperiod of
the sign occupied by Rudra.
142
Sutra 2.1.45 : depending on the short, medium or long life death comes in the periods of the 1
st
,
2
nd
or 3
rd
Shula signs respectively.

Sthira Dasa Periods
Notes:
1. Sa, Ra, or Ke in the 7
th
from Janma lagna or AK will cause death in the first, second or third parts.
If the Chart shows medium life, Sa puts an end in the first part, Ra in the second and Ke in the
third.
2. The 5
th
and 9
th
signs from the 8
th
house can bring about death.
3. If Shani is in the 8
th
house, death comes in the Navamsa of the sign.
4. The period of the 8
th
sign can cause death if it has both benefic and malefic association.
5. Death is possible in the dasa of a sign which has malefics on either side or which has malefics
in the 8
th
or 12
th
from it.
6. Death is likely in the dasa of the 8
th
or 12
th
sign if it is aspected only by Ve and the waning Mo.
7. If a malefic or Rudra is in the 2
nd
or 8
th
from lagna, AK or the Mo, death comes in the period of
the sign prior to it.
8. The sign in the 8
th
from Su or Ve also can cause death.
9. Longevity in Sthira dasa is from the period of Brahma rasi till the period of the sign having
Mahesvara.
10. The period of the sign having Rudra can bring about death.
11. Death can come in the periods of the 3
rd
, 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
houses from AK. The strongest of these
signs causes death.

Sthira Dasa Sub-Periods
Notes
1. The sub-period of death are in the 5
th
and the 9
th
signs from Mahesvara in the dasa of
Mahesvara rasi or in Sthira dasa
2. The strongest of lords of the 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
from AK gives the sub-period of the sign occupied
by them. This is the su-period of death.
3. The sub-period of death is the sign occupied by Rudra.
4. The sub-period of death is the Navamsa sign occupied by a maraka planet and the 6
th
from it in
Navamsa lagna.
5. When the dvara and bahrya rasi’s are afflicted, the navamsa dasa of the former, and the sub-
period of the latter.
6. The sub-period of death is when the lord of the 8
th
is exalted. Death comes in the Navamsa
dasa of the 5
th
and 9
th
lords from lagna and the 8
th
house.

Sutra 1.26 : in all odd signs the counting is to be in the right (clockwise ) direction. In even signs
the direction is to be in the reverse (anit-clockwise) direction.
Sutra 1.27 : in some cases this procedure is not applicable.
Calculate Brahma:
E Example: in D-1 chart , the strongest sign between Lagna (27 SAV) Mesha and the 7
th
sign Tula is Tula
(30 SAV). The lords of the 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
are : Ju, Ve and Me; counting is clkwise as Tula is in an odd
sign. Me is the strongest, behind the lagna (7
th
-12
th
signs) and in an odd sign (Kumbha). Brahma is Me.
Sa is the Atmakaraka.
E Note: Compute these values without a computer program as they are likely to be in error as the Jaimini
system is unconventional. See Jaimini Sutram by Prof. P.S. Sastri, PhD. , D.Litt.
144
Mahesvara:
• The lord of the 8
th
sign from the Ak (Sa-28.6) is Mahesvara .
Ma is the Mahesvara.
Find Rudra. Whomever is stronger among the lords of the 8
th
house from Lagna and the 7
th

house is Rudra
Ma is the lord of the 8
th
, Ve of the 7
th
. Ma: 5BAV; Ve 4BAV
Ma is also Rudra

Short, Medium and Long life Determinants by Kendras, Panapharas and Apoklimas:

Sutra 2.1.19 : if the lords of the 2
nd
and the 8
th
from lagna are strong and occupy Kendras {1, 4, 7,
10}, Panapharas {2, 5, 8, 11}, or Apoklimas {3, 6, ,9,12}, they cause respectively long, middle and
short lives. In the same way we have to consider the lords of the 2
nd
and the 8
th
house from the AK
also.

Notes: of the lords of the 2
nd
and the 8
th
, we have to find out who is stronger. It is the stronger
one we have to consider and see whether he is in the kendras, panap1haras or apoklimas. If the
lagna is odd, the 8
th
house is counted clkwise; and if it is an even sign the 8
th
is taken in the
anti-clkwise manner.
The 8
th
house lord is Ma @ 5BAV and occupies the Lagna and in his own sign, this is a
Kendra. The 2
nd
house lord is VE @ 4BAV. Mars is stronger.
Ma in a Kendra gives long-life.


Notes: Shoola rasi’s are the trikona signs {1, 5, 9}. If one has a short life, death comes before
the period (dasa) of 5
th
sign from Rudra begins. If it is medium life, death is between the
periods of the 5
th
and the 9
th
signs from Rudra. If there is long life, death is in the period of the
9
th
to the 12
th
signs.

Sutra 2.1.38: even when the weaker Rudra is aspected by a benefic and is with a benefic,
longevity extends up to the end of Shula rasi period.
Sutra 2.1.39:The above result is not to be predicted if a malefic other than the Sun is associated
with the condition mentioned in the previous sutra.

Notes: the Su must be in conjunction or aspect with the 1
st
, 5
th
or 9
th
signs for the Shula rasi
periods to be predicted.

o The Sun is in Makara thus in aspect with the 5
th
sign (by Jaimini’s Aspect Chart). For Jaimini
a Bhava and a Rasi are the same thing. The Shula Dasa is applicable thus from sutra 2.1.39.
The Shula Dasa follows using Jh 7.33 :

Pi: 2041-01-27 (19:55:49) - 2050-01-28 (3:19:40)

Sutra 2.1.45 : depending on the short, medium or long life death comes in the periods of the 1
st
, 2
nd

or 3
rd
Shula signs respectively.
o The 3
rd
Shula sign from the interval given is long-life so Aq: 2032-01-28 (12:26:50) -
2041-01-27
2032-01-28 : age 90








o Use the various dasa methods by Jaimini to fine tune for a reliable predictable date. Use Sri
Matreswara’s Exit from the World time and date method or his chart of a son for determining
date of death of the father. Also use Varahamihira’s Span of Life to determine age. He states
that maximum life for man is 120 years. The Veda’s say 100 years is the span of man’s life -
“Jivem Sharadah Shataam” and this may mean the average life of man. Choose the date from
the method which gives the highest age and most auspicious Dasa.












Sutra 2.1.58 : of the death inflicting planets generally the lord of the 6
th

(Chittanatha) causes death.
Notes: this can be 6

Death
• The disease from which a person dies is predicted by the nature of a planet which aspects the
8
th
house and the part of the body to be affected would be that represented by the 8
th
house in
the division under Kalapurusha.the humour belonging to the planet in the 8
th
house causes the
particular disease which produces death. If there are many planets then the body will be
subjected to many attacks resulting from the excess of the various humours indicated by such
planets and death will ensue.
Kalapurusha :
o Each sign of the zodiac represents a certain part of the human body and the diseases
peculiar to it and each planet also indicates certain types of diseases. Disease and death
are due to the disturbances in the laws of proportion and conjunction of natural forces
emanating from the planets and the times which these disturbances occur, can be
previously ascertained and adequate provision made to arrest or minimise such evil
influences.
o The planetary positions at birth clearly indicate the nature of the diseases one would
suffer from, when and how they would affect us and how best to alleviate them.
o The 12 signs of the Zodiac start from Aries in general but apply them from the
Ascendant in a casted birth chart. Thus for Organs and Governance of the Organs:
× Aries (1
st
house)=Head – brain, nerve centres ; Taurus (2
nd
house)=Face-gullet,
cerebellum; Gemini (3
rd
house)=Chest-lungs, breath, nerve fibres; Cancer (4
th

house)=Heart; Leo (5
th
house)= Belly-blood and liver ; Virgo (6
th
house) =
Waist-bowels and solar plexus; Libra (7
th
house)= Lower Belly-kidneys;
Scorpio (8
th
house)= Sexual organ-excretory system and bladder; Sagittarius (9
th

house)=the two thighs-arterial system; Capricorn (10
th
house)=the two knees-
bones and joints; Aquarius (11
th
house)= Buttock-eyes, breath; Pisces (12
th

house)= Feet-lymphatic system
× Refer to page 175 for Signs, Houses and Disease Tendencies for the anatomical
structures and diseases for each sign and house.
• The ruling planets significance of disease follows:
Sun: cerebellum, brain, blood, lungs, heart, stomach, breasts, ovaries, seminal vesicles,
diseases of the heart, appendicitis, fistula, inflammatory complaints.
Moon-pericardium, veins, lymphatic vessels, intestinal functions, eyes, alimentary canal,
membrane-genito and urinary derangements, testicle, wind and colic, bronchial catarrah,
dropsy, tumours, insanity, defective eye sight.
Mars-Muscular tissue, muscles, carebral hemispheres- inflammation of the lungs,
heoemoptsis, haemorrhage from the lungs, tuberculosis, hypertrophy, typhoid and enteric
fever, HIV and other contagious diseases.
Mercury- Nerves, breath, air cells, sense perception, hair, tongue, mouth-nasal disorders,
impediments of speech, brain and nervous disorders- cancerous brain tumour, asthma,
bronchitis, delirium, neurasthenia, headaches, neuralgia, palpitation, worms, genitor-urinary
troubles.
Jupiter- Arteries, veins, auricle and ventricle, the pleura, ear, blood apoplexy, pleurisy, piles,
tumours, diabetes.
148
Venus- Kidneys, aorta, flesh, marrow, skin, cheeks, cutaneous eruptions, throat diseases,
digestive troubles, venereal complaints.
Saturn- Spleen, upper stomach, endocardium, ribs, bones, hair, nails, colds, catarrah,
hypothermia, rheumatism, tuberculosis, bronchitis, asthma, gout.

Some of the Ailments have to be Assessed from the Planets
Responsible for them.
Su Right eye, heart, circulatory system, spleen, stomach,

Besides the 8
th
house, the 6
th
house and its ruler, the planets therein,
the aspects on the 6
th
house, and the navamsa the lord of the 6
th

occupies, should all be considered for predicting diseases. The actual
nature of the disease is found in the 8
th
house and the severity from a
malefic 12
th
house.
Example. The chart left is from a native who died from a cancerous
brain tumour:
(i) the 6
th
house is ruled by Moon, the 8
th
by Mercury, and the
12
th
by Saturn.There is some probable disease to the waist as
the 8
th
sign from the ascendant is Virgo. He first had his
spleen removed.


(ii)The navamsa where the 6
th
lord resides is the Moon which aspects from that position the
Ascendant in Rasi. The physical body that is the Lagna implicates a physical Moon or the brain.
149
The 2
nd
maraka house in Pisces indicates Cancer from above table and Jupiters occupancy, and
a tumour from Jupiters significant diseases in the list of planets. As Jupiter aspects the physical
Moon from the 7
th
position in Rasi , Cancer of the brain is possible (see table above).
(iii) the 12
th
house ruler is Saturn which is conjoined with the Sun. In his Rahu/Sun period he was
hospitalised.
(iv) the 8
th
ruler Mercury causes brain disorders and Rahu in the 2
nd
kills during his Dasa, Rahu
also aspects the 8
th
house and the Moon the ruler of the 6
th
. Mars conjunct with Mercury intensified
the rapid growth of a diseased brain and in his 20
th
year the native collapsed after complaining of
headaches and died during his Ra/Mo period!
• If the 8
th
house is a moveable, a fixed, or a common sign, death occurs in a foreign place, own
place or while travelling.
• In predicting the cause of death, first take the planet occupying the 8
th
house; if no planet is there,
consider the one that aspects the 8
th
house; if no planet aspects it, then give preference to the lord
of the 8
th
house.
• The 22
nd
drekkana (decanthe) , which lies the 8
th
from the 1
st
, the 8
th
from the 5
th
or the 8
th
from
the 9
th
bhava, depending on the tri-division of the Ascendants longitude (0-10; 10-20, 20-30), and
declares the cause of death and the lord of that drekkana kills the person by that disease which is
attributed to him taken from the Kalapurusha.

Example : Chart of Sri Ramakrishna


The kalpurusha of this Saint shows he died of kidney, thyroid and
throat diseases and the cause of these ailments are found from the
22
nd
drekkana, which is in 10-20 degrees (Ascendant: 17 degrees)
or the second drekkana, so we look to 8
th
house from the 5
th
house.
That places the cause with the lord of Capricorn or Saturn and the
sign occupied by Mars. Saturn is indicative of cronic diseases like
Cancer. Mars is specific to the neck and throat.





• The place, the time and the next world one goes to is illustrated by an example on the next
page. Some scholars refute this method, while others accept it. It appears to have merit.





150
Time and Place of Death (From Varahamihira–Brihat Jatak)
Sutra 25.12
The time of death is to be known from the number of navamsha yet to rise after birth. If the lord of the
lagna aspects it, the time must be doubled. If it is aspected by benefics, the time must be trepled.
Notes: the navamsha lagna has an owner. Find the place occupied by him. This sign
gets modified by the aspects on it, association of planets with it, and the Moon.
The places indicated by the signs are:

Mesha Vrischabha Mithuna Karka Simha Kanya Tula Vrischika Dhanush Makara Kumbha Meena
Goats
or
farm
Grazing
lawn
House Watery
place
Wilder
ness
Well
or
water
Store or
shop
Low
places
Farm Marshy
places
House swamp

The following factors are considered to find the place of death:
i. the nature of the sign occupied by the lord of the navamsha rising.
ii. The nature of the navamsha sign occupied by the lord of the navamsha.
iii. Planets in the sign occupied by the lord of the navamsha.
iv. Planets aspecting the sign occupied by the lord of the navamsha lagna.
The following factors are considered for the time of death:
i. take the total time of the navamsas (3 20) yet to rise = time of death.
ii. If the lagna is aspected by the owner this time must be doubled.
iii. If a benefic is in lagna or aqspects navamsa lagna this time must be trepled.
iv. If lagna is aspected by its lord and if it also has a benefic, the time must be multipled by six.



Day signs which are
strong :
Simha Kanya Tula Vrishchika Kumbha Meena
Night signs: Mesha Vrischabha Mithuna Karka Dhanush Makara

The lagna referred to may be the navamsa lagna. The time given is the time when the native will be
unconscious before death.

Place: Navamsa lagna is Mesha owned by Kuja; Kuja is
in Simha. By above table Simha is a Wilderness.
Time : degrees remaining in lagna are : 30 –2:56=27:04;
navamsa’s yet to rise =27.06/3.33=8.12; Ketu is in Lagna,
the time must be trebeled. 8.12*3= 24.36 The navamsa
lagna falls in Mesha a night sign.
Every 30 degrees of longitude is 2 hours which is 0.2222
hr per navamsa. The total time is 24.36*0.2222=5.4132 hrs
or The native dies : 05:24 hrs at night in a Wilderness.

Sutra 25.14
Guru, Chandra and Sukra; Ravi and Kuja; and Shani and Budha; bring persons respectively from
Devaloka, Pitriloka, Tiryogloka and Narakaloka. As per the drekkana occupied by the most
powerful between the Sun and the Moon we have to find the high, middle or low status of the
native in his previous birth.
Notes: find the stronger between the Sun and the Moon in D-1. Note the drekkana. The
owner of that drekkana reveals the worlds from which the native has come.
Devaloka belongs to the world of the Gods. Tiryogloka belongs to the world of the animals, Pitru
to the Manes and Naraka to Hell.


* The following is from the author of this e-book :
Varahamihira proclaims the Varnas with the above planets.
Maharishi Parasara too uses a similar classification.
Maharishi Jamini son of Vedavyasa and his desciple uses a
classification that takes into account the gunas of the
Siddhas who have been given the suzernity of their planet
by Brahman. Thus Guru (Brihaspati), Chandra (waxing),
Sukra and Budha all have sattvik natures which classify
them as Brahmin. Kuja and Ravi have rajasik natures which
classify them as Kshatriya. Sani has a tamasik nature
which classifies him as Sudra. However whenever Sani is
aspected by Budha his nature is between rajasik and tamas
a mixture of the two and is Vaisya. Thus all the Varnas are
a Dharmic reflection of their natures or gunas. Thus Sutra
25.14 taking this change into account could accurately reveal ones past world that one came from
before rebirth on earth.

Sutra 25.14 (reclassified)
Guru, Chandra (waxing), Sukra, and Budha; Ravi and Kuja; Shani-Benefic and Shani-Malefic,
bring persons respectively from Devaloka, Pitriloka, Tiryogloka, Narakaloka . As per the drekkana
occupied by the most powerful between the Sun and the Moon we have to find the highest, high,
middle or low status of the native in his previous birth.
Example chart . The arudha lagna of the rasi chart is ruled by lord Shani. The native was a
Sudra in his previous life. From the strength of planets the Moon = 5 BAV and the Sun= 6
BAV. The Sun is in the stronger sign also 29 SAV ( Mo, 22 SAV). Surya is the stronger.
Surya 14:02 Cap is in the 2
nd
Drekkana. The 5
th
house lord from him is the lord of that
Drekkana = Venus. From above caste of planets, the native came from Devaloka, the
world of the gods.

Sutra 25.15
The lord of the drekkana of the 6
th
or the 8
th
house or the planets in the 6
th
, 7
th
or 8
th
house indicates the
natives existence after death.
Notes: If there are no planets in 6, 7, or 8 find the lords of the rising drekkanas in 6 and 8.
Find the stronger of these and note the world referred to that lord. If there are planets in 6, 7
or 8, find the strongest.
Example chart : Me 2:16 is lord of the 6
th
who has a strength of 6 BAV. Lord of the 8
th
is Ma
15:03 who has a strength of 5 BAV. The stronger Me is in Kumbha and the 1
st
drekkana (02:16) is
ruled by Shani. The native will pass through Narakaloka and the City of Justice, ruled by
Dharmaraja after death.

152
+ Death, Past and Future Births - from Phala Deepika by
Matreswara
Chapter 14 verses 22-29

22. if the lord of 12
th
house be posited in his sign of exaltation, a friendly sign or a varga of a
benefic planet, the native after his death goes upward to heaven. If he is depositied in his sign of
debilitation, in an inimical sign or in the varga of a malefic planet, he after death goes to hell.
Some interpret this as a result of the nature of the sign (of the 12
th
house) i.e. heaven if the sign is a
shirshodaya one and hell if it be a prishtodaya one.
Notes: Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Aquarius = Shirshodaya signs.
Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Sagittarius, and Capricorn = Prishtodaya signs.
Pisces =Ubhayodaya sign.
Example 22: the 12
th
is Pisces a Ubhayodaya sign. He can go either way to Nirvana or Narakaloka.

23. the refuge after death is indicated by:
(1) the planet or planets deposited in the 12
th
house.
(2) The planet occupying the Navamsa of the 12
th
house, or the planet or planets with which the
lord of the 12
th
be connected.
If: (i) the Sun or Moon be such a planet the abode of the soul after death will be Kailash.

Example 23: The lord of the 12
th
sign is Guru, he is conjunct with benefic Chandra. He will go to
Kailash of lord Shiva.

If (ii) Mars be the planet concerned, the native will take birth on the Earth immediately after
death.
If (iii) Mercury be the planet in question, the next world for the native will be Vaikuntha.
If (iv) Jupiter takes the native’s soul to Brahmaloka.
If (v) Saturn takes the soul to the abode of Yama.
If (vi) Rahu to other islands and Ketu to hell.

24. it is from the lord of the 9
th
that all is ascertained about the native’s past birth and all information
about
his future birth is signified by the lord of the 5
th
house. The particular caste, country and the
direction of the person concerned in his past and future births should be deduced from the lords of
the 9t
h
and the 5
th
houses respectively.

Example 24: the lord of the 9
th
is Guru, this is the divine house of Bhagya. He was a Brahmin in
his previous life and lived outside of India. The 5
th
house lord is Surya. He will act as a Kshatriya
for occupation.

25. if the planets referred to above be in their sign of exaltation, the abode should be declared as that
of
Gods (Devaloka). If they be in their sign of debilitation or in an inimical sign, the abodes of past
and future births should be declared to be foreign countries. If the above planets be in their own
sign or a neutral's sign, such place would be India alone.

Example 25: Guru in past life is in an inimical sign Vrishabha; Surya in future birth is in an
inimical sign Makara. He will live outside of his birth country, namely South Africa.

26. the parts of India covered by the various planets are as under:-
153
(1) Sun- mountains and forests
(2) Moon- tracts watered by the holy rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, Narada Godavari etc.
(3) Mars- Bihar
(4) Mercury- all sacred places.
(5) Jupiter- Aryavarta bordered in the North by Himalayas, in the south by Vindhya, and which
extends to oceans in the East and the West.
(6) Venus- same as the Moon’s places.
(7) Saturn- prohibited places like those inhabited by Mlechchas (non-Hindus).
27. (i) if the planets referred to in verse 24 (lords of the 9
th
and the 5
th
), are posited in a fixed sign or
Navamsa which is Prishtodaya and Adhomukha along with malefics, the past and future births
of the native should be taken as trees, plants and the like.

Exahmple 27: Guru is in Taurus a fixed sign, and Pristodaya and with a benefic; Surya is in a chara
(moveable sign) Makara and a Prishtodaya sign with a malefic Sukra. The future birth is in a
human body.

(ii) If the lord of the 9
th
and the 5
th
houses occupy a Shirshodaya and an Urdhvamukha sign or a
movable sign or navamsa, and be associated with benefics, the past and future births will be of an
animal kind.

28. (i) if the lord of the 9
th
or the 5
th
be in a sign of exaltation or own sign to the lord of Lagna [i.e the
9
th
or the 5
th
lords is a depositor in the lord of Lagna’s exultation or own sign], it would mean
that the native’s previous birth (9
th
) or the future birth (5
th
) birth will be that of a human being

Example 28 (i): The lord of Lagna is Ma whose exultation sign is Makara occupied by Surya the
lord of the 5
th
. This satisfies sutra 28 and the native is to be a human being in future birth.

(ii) If the lord of the 9
th
occupied a sign neutral to the lord of the Lagna, the native in the past birth
was born as an animal.

Example 28 (ii): the lord of Lagna Ma is neutral to Sukra the lord of Vrishabha to which sign the
lord of the 9
th
Guru is deposited. The native in his past birth was an animal.

(iii) If the lord of the 5
th
be in a sign neutral to the lord of the Lagna, the native in his future birth
will be born as an animal.
(iv) If the lord of the 9
th
occupies the sign of debilitation of the lord of the Lagna or in an inimical
sign, the native was born as a bird in his previous life.
(v) If the lord of the 5
th
be in such a situation, the native will be born as a bird in his next birth.

29. (i) if the lords of the 9
th
and the 5
th
be in the same sign, the past birth was in his own country and
the future birth will also take place there.
(ii) If these two planets be of equal strength, the past and future birth would be of the same caste.
(iii) The colour and quality will also be similar to these belonging to the lords of the 9
th
and the 5
th

houses.

E Example-chart -verses 22-28: Summary

Example 22: the 12
th
is Pisces a Ubhayodaya sign. He can
go either way to Nirvana or Narakaloka.
Example 23: The lord of the 12

Brahmin.

5112 Method of Longevity-

Exit from the World -
Sutra 28: the death may take place when Saturn, Jupiter Sun and the Moon in course of their transit
pass through:
(i) The house occupied by the lord of the 8
th
.
(ii) The house occupied by the lord of the 12
th
.
(iii) The house occupied by the lord of the 6
th
.
(iv) The house occupied by the 8
th
house Decante i.e. the 22
nd
drekkana.

E Using Jyotish Tools computer program www.jyotishtools.com and using the Muhurta Tool in the
Tool Menu the following transits can fix the time of death, when the native becomes unconscious
before passing, the soul being released only during cremation, unless there is evidence in the chart
of a Meritorious Soul or Saint.

Sutras-
(i) If all the Trik house lords {6, 8, 12} and the 22
nd
-Drekkana lord are in the rasi or Janma
Lagna and at least one of the transiting planets : Saturn, Jupiter, Sun or Moon are there then
this 1
st
Muhurta chart is the time when bodily debilitation starts.
(ii) If all of the above lords cannot form a conjunction in rasi lagna then place as many of these
transiting parameters as possible in lagna and place the balance in powerful aspecting
positions.
o Then this 1
st
Muhurta chart is the time of life when debilitation of body starts.
o If after the 1
st
Muhurtha is taken, the astrologer finds Jupiter already in Revati (sign of
Pisces) then that is the time of death. Jupiter already in Revati is found in the charts of
meritorious souls, or jivanmukta’s.
o See Example 8
(iii) If Jupiter is not in Revati, place Saturn in the star Bharani in 13:20 degrees Mesha (Aries).
Saturn is rotated clockwise to this position in the Muhurtha chart if his position is greater than
13:40 Leo (end of Magha). If Saturn is located less than this rotate Saturn anticlockwise to the
nakshatra Bharani. i.e., if Saturn is behind Simha in houses 9 to 12 - rotate anticlockwise. If
Saturn is in front in houses 1 to 8 and greater than 13:40 Magha in Simha , rotate clockwise.
o This is the 2
nd
Muhurtha time.
o If after the 2
nd
Muhurtha is taken, the astrologer finds Jupiter has moved to Revati - the
star in the sign of Pisces, then that is the time of death. Jupiter in Revati in 2
nd

Muhurtha is found in the charts of meritorious souls.
o See Example’s : 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
o If Jupiter is not in Revati; after the 2
nd
Muhurtha, move Jupiter clockwise or
anticlockwise - depending on the stage of life taken from the chart above - to the first
trine position to the Divine Mother in Revati.
⇒ Jupiter is moved clockwise if age is in 1
st
or 2
nd
stage to the first trine
position ( 5, 9 ) - 16:40 Sign to Revati in Pisces.
⇒ Jupiter is moved retrograde (in exultation) anti-clockwise if age in 3
rd
stage
of life -over 66.7 years- to the first trine position 16:40 Sign to Revati in
Pisces.
o This is the 3
rd
Muhurtha time and the time of death. See Examples 1, 2, 3, 4, 10.
o Note: In the data box for each example, the Statistical Age details is found in the Statistical
Section of this manual.
o The Varahamihira Ages are from his method.







156
Bharani is said to be the Nakshatra where Yama guides the soul to the astral plane , where it
can experience the result of its karma and vasanas from the samskaras and prepare for the next
life. This is Yama’s first visit. This is the time when one asks Yama to extend life further or
complete it soon. Bharani starts in 13:20 Aries. This is the 1
st
Muhurta or time.
Magha is ruled by the ancestors. Magha Nakshatra causes a change of state or condition, a kind of
death. Usually it shows that we are coming to the end of a cycle. This nakshatra is a marker on the
movement of Saturn either to extend or to retract, the years of one’s life cycle. Magha ends in the
sign of 13:40 Leo.
Revati is the great womb of the Divine Mother, revealing the end as well as new beginnings. This
is the 2
nd
Muhurtha given in life charts.The primary motivation of this asterism is moksha. It is
also associated with deep faith and devotion to Brahman. Meritorious souls end their life cycle in
this star. Pushan the protector of kine is invoked in the Vedas for safe travel and protects the soul
in its travel to the world of the Deva’s. Pushan the deity of Revati guides the soul to the third
world. Revati starts in 16:40 Pisces.
Finally the 3
rd
Muhurtha date of punya chakra or passing away time is Guru or Jupiter in trine to
the Divine Mother in Revati. After the body is destroyed by the loss of Prana- the vital force, the
soul with its attributes (Avaranas) is to transmigrate away from the dissoluted material body, pass
in auspicious proximity to the Tara Revati- the womb of the Divine Mother of the Universe and
journey either in the northerly (uttarayana) or southerly (dakshinayana) direction, in its astral
body of light, to the region of its merit. Some will pass through Surya to Satyaloka others to the 3
rd

plane of Chandraloka . Lord Krishna explains this process in the Bhagavad Gita (chapt 8, verse
22-26) and Muni Vayasa in the Brahma Sutras.

• The worlds beloved Gurudeva had colon cancer resulting in
Prayopavesha MahaSamadhi. Rahu in the 7
th
in rasi aspecting
Lagna indicated some type of cancer. Any relation between lords of
the 6
th
and 8
th
houses make for a high intensity of the ailment. In
above rasi chart (upper left), lord of 6
th
house = Venus, and lord of
8
th
house= Moon. Note Moon/Venus conjunction in the 2
nd
maraka
house in Capricorn aspected by malefic Saturn in Scorpio. In any chart the 6
th
is the house of
disease, and the 8
th
that of the nature of the disease. The Moon is responsible for, among
others, tumors and the digestive system. In the SAV charts of rasi the Moon and Venus scored
3 and 4 bindu and Saturn only 3 bindus. This relative weakness (out of 8) of these planets
means the disease progressed slowly. Benefic Mars aspect on the 6
th
and 8
th
houses also helped
to defer their evil effects.
• His great works, like Lemurian Scrolls , inspired us to see the Universe differently. Through
his meditations and subsequent writings we became enlightened to the working’s of the divine
world all around us. He revealed the great library of lord Skanda in the 3
rd
world and read from
it the early history of life on earth. Cosmologists should take note of his revelation’s and find
the meaning behind the apparently real but unreal universe, that is always in flux, but blessed
nevertheless with the great abiding bliss of the immortals, like Gurudeva.
• Jaimini Medium-life is indicated ; 1

lords are both in common signs, and when one is in a cardinal
sign and the other in a fixed sign, there is medium longevity.
Sutra 2.1.4:if the lords of the 1

houses are both in fixed signs and when one is in a
cardinal sign and the other is in a common sign, there is short life.

1= Movable signs : { 1-Aries, 4-Cancer, 7-Tula, 10-Capricorn}
2= Fixed signs : { 2-Taurus, 5-Leo, 8-Scorpio, 11-Aquarius }
3= Common signs :{ 3-Gemini, 6-Virgo, 9-Sagittarius, 12-Pisces }

Medium life (1, 2) (2, 1) (3, 3)
Short life (1, 3) (3, 1) (2, 2)

Sutra 2.1.1 : longevity is to be determined from the lord of lagna and from the lord of the 8
th
house
from lagna.
Sutra 2.1.5 : the rules given to Sutras 1 to 4 are to be applied also to janma lagna (As) and Chandra
lagna (Mo).

Unknown Birth Time

The importance of the exact moment of birth need not be stressed. And one of the toughest jobs of an
astrologer is to find the exact moment of birth before venturing to make any predictions. In most cases
the exact time of birth will not have been recorded. From my own experience there are two methods to
use to find the birth time and which one you use depends on the exiting parameters of time :
DATA 1, birth chart that is formed when only the place of birth, year and month of birth are
known.
DATA 2, birth chart that is formed when the place of birth, year and month of birth and day of
birth are known.

According to Varahamihira, there is an intimate connection existing between the planetary positions at
conception and those at birth. Therefore it is possible to rectify the time of birth by adjusting the Moon
and Ascendant at birth and at conception (prashna).
• The number of dwadashamsha (D-12) present in the longitude of Moon at the time of
conception (prashna) added to the said longitude of the Moon will give the sign in which the
Moon will be at the time of birth in the 9
th
or 10
th
month of conception – sutra 4.20, Brihat
Jataka.
DATA 2:
A devotee does not know her time of birth but she thinks it was before sunrise.
The time of the Prashna (query) was 12:30 hrs @ 80W36, 28N5, +5:00 GMT on the 18
th
Janruary,
2009. Her date of birth was 21
st
June 1973 in Puerto Cortes, Honduras.- 87W57, 15N50, Time:
Unknown
The Prashna and D-12 charts follow:











o To find janma Nakshatra:
In the Prashna-Rasi chart the prashna Moon is in Libre and Swati constellation (11:46 Li). In the
prashna-Dwadasamsha D-12 chart the Moon is in Aquarius (21:23). The Dwadasamshas are found by
diving the Moons longitude by 2.5. Therefore 21.3888/2.5= 8.55 or counting 9 from 15 (Swati’s
position in Nakshatra table) one gets Dhanishtha, the proposed constellation of her birth. This is
only true if the Prashna chart is a reflection of her birth chart because when casting a birth chart when
three parameters of year, month and day are known, the true janma nakshatra must be the same.
o The birth time of the querist will be the Prasna Lagna, or the 5
th
or the 9
th
from it, whichever is
the most powerful.
· The Prasna Ascendant lagna has a strength of 23 SAV; the 5
th
sign from that has a
strength of 28 SAV and the 9
th
sign 29 SAV. The 9
th
sign-Dhanush is the strongest.
o The Hora for daytime and night-time are:
170
Hora –; divide a sign into two equal parts (D2).
Odd: The first half of an odd sign is ruled by the Su. The second half by the Mo.
Even : The first half of an even sign is ruled by the Mo. The second half by the Su.
· the Moon must be in Dhanishtha from 23:20Cap –6:39Aqu.
o The degrees rising on the Prasna Ascendant or the strongest trinal sign indicate the gatikas
(time) of birth .
· The lord of the 9
th
sign is Jupiter who is rising 9:05:17 degrees in Makara, an even sign
and in the first half of sign. Thus the sign is ruled by the Moon at night; therefore the
native was born anytime from midnight, to before sunrise, or from sunset to midnight
on the 21
st
June 1973.
o The amount of time is represented by the transverse of longitude of the lord of sign, in the
strongest trinal sign. Therefore using the rule of three: [9.0880/30]*13.33=4.0391 degrees into
the constellation of Dhanishtha. Note: there are 800 minutes and 13:20 degrees in a Nakshatra.
Adding 4.0391 (4:2:21) degrees to Dhanishtha which starts at 23:20 Cap = 27:22:21 Cap.
o In the Muhurtha chart move the Moon to 27:22:21 Cap and note the time of this chart to find
the birth time. The final birth chart is below.
Note : Moving the Moon to 27:22:21 Cap brings time to 07:42hrs 20
th
June 1973, the previous day;
this cannot be as the native was born on the 21
st
June 1973. As Dhanishtha ends 6:39 Aqu on the
21
st
June 1973, the native must have been born between midnight (0:0:0hrs) and 01:46hrs (the end
of Dhanishtha). A solution is to translate the syllable of a name and note which pada it falls in.
Name and form constitute the whole universe of existence (Sat). Therefore a persons name given
by ones parents is intuitive knowledge taken from the cosmic memory of that parent. The syllables
of that name form the mental cognition of that childs existence
There are four padas for the night, two from midnight to sunrise and two from sunset to midnight
of the same day.
The naama for padas 1 -4 in Dhanishtha are : gaa (i); gii (T); guu (ch); ge (g).
The name is VICTORIA and the syllable ‘vi’ with the vowel ‘i’ [gaa (i)] , the first pada.
The persons syllable falls in the first pada and this correlates to her Nakshatra. Taking the end of
the Nakshatra in the first pada as her birth time:

Victoria was born on the 21
st
June, 1973 at 01:46hr in Puerto Cortez, Honduras.

To Find the Constellation at Birth
DATA 2
The number of dwadashamsha (D-12) present in the longitude of Moon at the time of conception
(prashna) added to the said longitude of the Moon will give the sign in which the Moon will be at the
time of birth in the 9
th
or 10
th
month of conception – sutra 4.20, Brihat Jataka.
• Example:
A devotee does not know his time of birth. The time of the Prashna (query) was 12:28 hrs @
80W36, 28N5, +5:00 GMT on the 9
th
August, 2009; His date of birth was 29
th
December 1951 in
Miranda (Simla) India- 77E09, 31N06, Time: Unknown
The Prashna and D-12 charts follow:

In the Prashna-Rasi chart the Moon is in Meena and Uttara Bhadrapada nakshatra (3:20 Pis – 16:39
Pis). In the Prashna-Dwadasamsha D-12 chart the Moon is in Mesha 17:38:47. The Moon in Meena is
23:52 which is 23.8666/2.5 = 9.5467 dwadasamsas Counting 10 from 26 (Moons position in Uttara
Bhadrapada and the Nakshatra table) one gets Pushya, the proposed constellation of his birth. To
check to see if the prashna chart is accurate to predict the correct birth time the following chart is cast
from the above birth parameters:

By Varahamihira’s method the Moon cannot be in the constellation of Pushya because the date of
birth is on the 29 December and moving the Moon to there would change the year of birth, month
of birth and day of birth.

172
+ 5112 Method of Finding Birth Time

(i) Find the Constellation:-
A devotees date of birth was 29
th
December 1951 in Miranda (Simla) India- 77E09, 31N06, Time:
Unknown

• The range of the constellations on the 29
th
day of December, 1951 @ 00:00h and 23:59:59h are
illustrated in the following two charts:




• Note that the Moon is in 17:03 Sagittarius, constellation of Purva Ashadha in the first chart and
Moon is in 2:19 Capricorn, constellation of Uttara Ashadha in the second chart.
• Note the AK (Atmakaraka planet), Mars in both charts.
• In the Sarvatobhadra chart find the vowel-consonants of each constellation and note the set
which has most vowel-consonants in the natives full name : ‘Dinesh’. That will be the birth
constellation. Purva Ashadha= {bh, k, j, ai, s, y, e, r}; Uttara Ashadha= {j, ah, o, v, bh, p, kh,
173
g}. Most of the vowel-consonants are in ‘Dinesh’ {s, e} a subset of Purva Ashadha. Purva
Ashadha is chosen!

(ii) Finding the Period (day or night) of Birth Time by Hora:-
• The Hora for daytime and night-time are:
Hora –; divide a sign into two equal parts (D-2).
Odd: The first half of an odd sign is ruled by the Su. The second half by the Mo.
Even : The first half of an even sign is ruled by the Mo. The second half by the Su.
• From the sign occupied by the Moon is it an odd sign or an even sign? What half of sign does
the Moon lie in?
o the Moon is in Purva Ashadha from 13:20Sag –26:39Sag. Moon is in an odd sign
and his longitude is in the second-half of the sign. Therefore from the Hora rules:
Moon is the ruler of this sign, indicating the night time. Dinesh was born at night.

(iii) Find the Pada Period of Birth Time from Syllables of a Name:-
A chart is used for each Nakshatra to translate the syllable of a name and note which pada it falls
in (see appendix chart)
Note: Name and form constitute the whole universe of existence (Sat). Therefore a persons name
given by ones parents is intuitive knowledge taken from the cosmic memory of that parent. The
syllables of that name form the mental cognition of that childs existence.

Pada 1 Pada2 Pada3 Pada4
PurvaAshadha: bhuu (ai) dha (T) pha (dh) Dha (g)

Note: the navamsa name is in brackets.

• From the chart of Naama (sounds) find the pada (time) from the sarvatobhadra chart vowels
and consonants that are in a square formed from the Moon (Mo) to the Ascendant (As). The
syllable set is : {i, bh, y, au, am, n, e, t~, p, r, n, t} the subset for Purva Ashadha is :
{i, bh, p, t}.
• The strongest vowel-consonant is the intersection of the Mo and the As. Which is {i}, but there
is no {a} to combine with it. Therefore only {t} is found in the subset above. Pada 2 is
chosen!
• Each pada has a time of 6 hours running from midnight to 06:00hr for the 1
st
period; 06:00-

(iv) Find the Complete Birth Time from Transverse of Longitude:-
• To find the complete time use the Naam-pada and Hora and find the degrees of transverse
of the lord of the strongest trinal sign.
• To find the complete time use the Naam-pada and Hora and find the degrees of transverse
of the lord of the strongest trinal sign from the strongest Moon-lagna or Ascendant-lagna.
From above, the Ascendant was stronger.
o The Ascendant lagna has a strength of 35 SAV; the 5
th
sign from that has a strength
of 29 SAV and the 9
th
sign 21 SAV. The Lagna is the strongest trine.
o The amount of time is represented by the number of degrees transversed by the lord
of the strongest trinal sign. The lord of the Lagna is Budha. Mercury at 23:00
degrees Scorpio was found to be the strongest transversing planet and using the rule
of three: [23/30]*13.33=10:13:19 degrees in the constellation of Purva Ashadha.
174
Note: there are 800 minutes and 13:20 degrees in a Nakshatra. Adding 10:13:19
degrees to PurvaShadha which starts at 13:20Sag= 23:33:19 Sagittarius.
o In the Muhurtha chart move the Moon to 23:33:19 Sagittarius and note the time of
this chart to find the birth time. The final birth chart is below. Time 10:12:19.

Ayurvedic Astrology

The main correlation between Vedic medicine and Vedic astrology is that between doshas and the
planets, with three doshas corresponding to each of the three planets. The doshas are not faults but the
constituent part of ones Prakruti or constitution. They are necessary for life function and are in balance
when one is considered healthy. When they go out of balance due to improper life style and wrong
diet, disease results. Ayurveda does not treat or name a disease or treat its effects. Our ancient Seer’s
gave us this science from the Vedas to enable the physician or patient to self heal by Trividha Pariksha
(The three Catagories of Clinical Examination) – darshanam, visual inspection of the site of the
disease; sparshana, examination by touch and prashna, which is questioning by an Ayurvedic
physician. In the context of Astrology the planets influence is considered in Ayurveda. As the body is
composed of more than sixty-percent water and as the earth in its sojourn through a stormy celestial
sphere passes through nine planets and twenty-seven constellations, they great effect on the body and
the tridoshas which determine ones mental and physical well-being.


Signs and the Doshas
• Vata dosha – Saturn, Rahu, Mercury
• Pitta dosha – Sun, Mars, Ketu
• Kapha dosha- Moon, Jupiter, Venus



Saturn, is a Vata dosha planet, light, dry, cold, mobile and slow moving in the birth charts. Saturn as
such indicates redemption through renunciation, fasting and abstemsion. Life term is shortened if
aggravation of this dosha occurs as Saturn is key to longevity in the Ayurvedic sciences. As a planet of
loss interpreted as physical disabilities, the vata disorders are: stiffness and pain in the arms, neck,
chest, back, legs, thighs, kness, calfs and ankles. Bradycardia, tachycardia, arthritis, astringent taste in
the mouth, earache, tinnitus, deafness, pain in the jaw, pain in the eye, amaurosis (eye loss), ptosis of
eyelid and eye brow, headache, pain in the abdomen, prolapsed rectum, pain around the pelvic girdle,
mass peristalsis, dandruff, asthenia, delirium, insomnia and unstable mentality.
Sun, is a Pitta dosha planet, hot, sharp, light, liquid with spreading rays which increases pitta.
Aggravation of this dosha by excess sun can cause heating, dizziness, fainting, hemorrhage, bitter taste
in the mouth, nausea, diarhea, rashes, hives, urticaria, jaundice, eczema, conjunctivitis, stomatitis,
pharyngitis, herpes, acne, skin allergies and skin cancer.
Moon, is a Kapha dosha planet, slow/dull, cold, liquid, slimy and smooth. In the psychology of the
mind the Moon is key to the Manas. On this level the aggravation of Kapha Dosha creates depression,
anorexia nervosa, excess sleep, heaviness of the body, laziness, sweet taste in the mouth, mucous
expectoration, loss of strength, indigestion, obesity, hardening of vessels, urticaria, whiteness of eyes,
urine and feces.
Rahu-the north node side of the Moon, is similar to Saturn in its doshas but more severe. In the 8
th
or
12
th
position in a birth chart much damage to a natives long lasting health can occur. See the table of
diseases for Rahu.
Mercury-is a Vata dosha planet, and its quixotic mobile nature aggrates the psychology in the Vata
humour. Mercury corresponds to the nervous system, communication (speech, mind and intellect).
• Disease Factors: weak lungs and a sensistive nervous system.
• Diseases: Bronchitis, Allergies (skin and food), Hay fever, Speech defects, Dementia, Growth
–Endocrine. All these diseases are likely in childhood.
176
Mars-is a Pitta dosha planet second only to Saturn for causing diseases and indicates fever,
inflammation, infection and acute conditions.
• Diseases: Liver disease = Hepatitus A,B,C, Jaundice, Cancer, Acne, Boils, Skin Ulcerations,
Herpes Simplex, STD’s.
Ketu-is a Pitta dosha planet and the heating nature of this dosha causes inflammation of diseases of
the nervous system and brain tissue, in a subtle way. Ketu involves coordination or strength of the
muscular system, including the onset of neuro-muscular diseases. It can also indicate accidents,
injuries and wounds particularly those owing to collective factors like wars or catastrophies.
Ketu in Mundane astrology should be the planet chosen for study in predicting such disasters.
• Disease Factors: psychological imbalances, neuromuscular disorders, febrile diseases, cancer.
• Diseases: Dementia, Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis.
Venus-is a Kapha dosha planet and causes diseases through indulgencies or luxurious living styles.
The reproductive systems may be involved.
• Disease Factors: the kidneys and reproductive system.
• Diseases: Menstural Cramps, PMS (post menstrual stress), Prostate disfunction, Impotence,
Infertility, Renal inclusions (stones), Urinary tract infections. Venereals.
Jupiter- is a Kapha dosha planet that creates bulk in the body. It is like Venus, it can cause diseases
through self-indulgencies. Overweight, obesity are some self-made afflictions.
• Disease Factors: overweight, excess fluid, high blood-sugar.
• Diseases: Diabetes, Edema, Obesity, High LDL, Hyperglycemia, Liver conditions.

The Signs and the Five Elements (Bhutas)
• Air Signs- Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
• Fire Signs- Aries, Leo, Saggitarius
• Water signs- Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
• Earth Signs- Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Air Signs are like Vata dosha- afford good development of the mind and the nervous system, but give
no endurance so a native can suffer from overwork or over exertion.
Fire Signs are like Pitta dosha- endow a native with good vitality, strong digestion, good circulation
and excellent resistance to disease, owing to the ability of the fire element to both nurish the body and
burn up pathogens.
Water Signs are like Kapha dosha- provides a good development of the bodily tissues, which consist
primarily of water, but have a tendency toward disease through excess water or weight, so their
resistance to disease can be limited.
Earth Signs are like Kapha dosha- have the weakest potential in terms of health, because they keep
ones energy on a physical level, and can increase entropy or the forces that cause decay. On the
positive side they can give athletic, healing or creative powers.


The Qualities of the Signs by the Dosha of the Ruling Planet
• Aries, Leo, Scorpio ruled by Mars and Sun are Pitta in quality.
• Taurus, Cancer, Libra, Saggitarius ruled by Venus, Moon and Jupiter are Kapha in quality.
• Gemini, Virgo, Capricorn, Aquarius ruled by Mercury and Saturn are Vata in quality.

Note: In some Jyotisha systems, viz. Parasara system, the planets are more important than the
signs, in others the signs are more important than the planets viz. Jaimini system. Use the required
system for its important properties.

Good and Bad Planets for Various Lagnas

♦ Ju and Sa as lords of signs 9 and 10 prove auspicious only in 9 and 10. Sa is the lord of a Kona
{10}. Me as lord of 3 and 6 is a malefic. Ve owns two maraka houses {2, 7}. Some authorities
hold that Ve for Mesha Lagna (Aries, sign -1) and Ma for Tula Lagna (Libra, sign -7) are not
marakas.

O Mesha Lagna , Aries – sign 1

For those born in this lagna Me is a malefic. In this Lagna Su and Ju are benefics; if they are
together Su/Ju they are Yogakarakas. Ju/Sa in conjunction in Lagna is benefic. Ju and other’s in
conjunction in lagna is not good. Ju/Ve is a maraka. Sa/ in conjunction with others in lagna may
be malefics, but they do not kill.

O Vrishabha Lagna,Taurus – sign 2

Sa owns the strongest kona and kendra (Square and Trine). Sa can do good for Vrishabha lagna.
Even if Ju and others prove marakas, if they are alone (not conjoined with other’s) they do not
cause death. The mulatrikona of Ju becomes the sixth and hence he is a malefic. Similarly Ve for
the same lagna is not a benefic as he owns the sixth as his mulatrikona.

O Mithuna lagna , Gemini – sign 3

Sa, Ma and Ju are malefics. The effect of their conjunction gives adverse results. The Mo by
himself will not cause death; the rest can kill (Sa/x, Ma/x, Ju/x ).

O Karkataka Lagna , Cancer – sign 4

Ma is a yogakaraka, as he owns a kendra (10) and kona (5). Other than the Su the rest can cause
death. These are the effects for those born in the Cancer (Karka) lagna. For those born in
Karkataka Lagna , Me and Ve are malefics as Me owns houses {3, 12}. Ma and Ju are benefics.
Ma is a yogakarakas.
Planets in the House of an Enemy
Su Gives up the happiness of his father, serves
others.
Mo Afflicts his mother, has heart disease
Ma Defective limb, ungrateful, unclean
Me Miserable, follows evil ways.
Ju Speculator about the future.
Ve A labourer.
Sa Suffers sorrows.
Ra Results of Sa apply to Ra. Enemy of Ra is
the Mo
Ke Results of Ma apply to Ke. Enemy of Ke
is Su
Planets in debilitation
Su No friend or relatives; lives abroad
Mo Ailing, little religious merit of wealth
Ma Indigent, ungrateful
Me Base, offends to relatives
Ju Censured and disgraced, wicked
Ve Sorrows
Sa Without wealth, wife, or luck,
mischieveous
Ra Rahu is like Sa; his debilitation is in
Sagittarius.
Ke Ketu is like Ma, and his debilitation is
in Gemini
182

O Simha Lagna, Leo - sign 5

Ma and Ju are benefics. Ma and Ju are jogakarakas, because they own a kendra and a kona.The
conjunction of Ju/Ve is not beneficial. Me and others can bring about death in this Simha
lagna . Ve owning a kendra becomes a functional malefic (FM). Ju owning his mulatrikona as
the 5
th
house is a benefic.

O Kanya Lagna, Virgo - sign 6

If planets Ma, Ju and Mo are in this lagna they are malefics. Ve is the only benefic. Ma owns
{3, 8}, while Ju owns a kendra; these two are malefics. It is debateable weather the Mo
becomes malefic.


O For Tula Lagna, Libra - sign 7

Ju , Su and Ma, are malefics. The Mo with Me causes Rajayoga. Ma is a maraka, Su and Ju do
not cause death. Sa and Me are benefics.

O Vrischika Lagna, Scorpio – sign 8

Me and Venus give inauspicious results. The Mo and Jupiter ( who owns a kona)are the only
benefics. Su and Mo give good results when they are separate or together. Ju by himself is not a
maraka. The mulatrikona of Ma falls in the sixth, and hence he is a malefic. The conjunction of
Su/Mo in this lagna is not at all favourable as it takes place around the time of the amavasya (new
moon) . Me gives good result in this lagna.

O Danush Lagna, Saggitarius – sign 9

Ve alone is a malefic. Su and Ma are great benefics. Kuja’s mulatrikona and Ravi’s are in 5 and 9.
They are great benefics, but Kuja must be ahead of Ravi. Me/Su is a benefic here.

O Makara Lagna, Capricorn – sign 10

Ma and Ju are malefics. Me and Ve are benefics. By himself Sa will not kill. Ma and others can
kill. The best yogakaraka is Ve. Ve mulatrikona falls in a kendra (square), thus benefic. Me is a
benefic as his mulatrikona falls iin a kona house {1, 5, 9}. Experience does show that Ju give good
results for Makara Lagna. Sa is not a maraka as he owns the Lagna. But in lagna he can cause
death.

O Kumbha Lagna, Aquarius – sign 11

Mo, Ma and Ju are malefics. Ve is a benefic. The combination (conjunction) of Ma/Me causes
a benefic yoga. Ju is not a maraka. Su, Ma and other can kill.

O Meena Lagna, Pisces – sign – 12

Ve and Sa are malefics. Ma and Mo are benefics. Ju/Ma in conjunction cause Rajayoga. Ma is
not a maraka but Me is a maraka. Ve is a first rate malefic for Meena lagna. Sa’s mulitrikona
falls in the twelfth.
183

Effects of the Moon on the Mind (Manas) in Different Houses-
The Ascendant- represents the physical and spiritual native, the false-ego and the meditative ego, one
true self. Odd lords of the Ascendant show a masculine type of personality while even lords show a
more personality. Thus this house is often called the house of ones personality and karmic nature.
The Moon- where its position from the Ascendant reveals the emotional nature or vasana-mental
temperament brought with us from our previous life activities is determined to be strong or weak
depending on a waxing or waning Moon in the janma rasi. For example an isolated waning Moon in
rasi with no planets or malefic planets in adjacent houses (2
nd
and 12
th
and malefics in the kendras) is
cause for Kemadruma yoga, a severe mental condition that could arise in a natives chart due to karma.

Moon Sign Svadharmas (Behaviours)
The Moon is a powerful centre of radiation of energy in a horoscope. It is even said that after one
completes 32 years of life, all predictions must be based on the fact that his Ascendant is the sign
occupied by the Moon.

Aries Moon- is ruled by Mars. The leadership role of Mars is imposed on an otherwise calm Moon.
This can cause agitation and anger. During the waning period, especially during the Amavasya new
Moon phase, emotions, anxieties and egos are rife but during the Moons waxing Purnima period, a
happy leadership role with peaceful state of mind and a general feeling of well-being occurs. The 4th
house rulership of the Moon from this position can create in waxing or waning periods positive or
negative energy towards mother, relatives, places of study, and nation.
Taurus Moon- exalted up to 3-degrees and mulitrakona from 4 to 20 degrees, has the association of
ruling Venus. A creative mind is stimulated when the Moon is in Taurus and produces many luxurious
and comfort effects (house building, vehicles, truthful speech, partnerships, relationships etc). The 3
rd

house is ruled by the Moon and gives a person vitality, introspection, creativity, courage,
communication skills and mental strength among other positive attributes.
Gemini Moon- the house of friendly Mercury, shows an intelligent, expressive, sensitive and
changeable emotional nature. The 2
nd
house Karka is a house of wealth of speech and an aristocratic
nature. Emotions change during the Moon phases.
Cancer Moon- a native becomes friendly, careing and oriented towards family life. If Saturn aspects
Cancer the native is more centred on public life or even in politics.
Leo Moon- As the Moon rules the 12
th
house from Leo the native here is native-centred with a strong
capacity for renunciation and spirituality. A strong personality subordinates emotions providing
strength, nobility and character.
Virgo Moon- The 6
th
house is a house of potential disease. The Moon here could found a healthy
mind or cause a type of cerebral dementia later in life.This is true because the 11
th
house is ruled from
Virgo which is a house of realisation of hopes. It all depends on 8
th
house outcome with a strong ruling
Mars.
Libra Moon- associates the Moon with career as it rules the 10
th
house. Ruling Venus influences the
natal Moon here toward building social and work related relationships, which could produce fame and
recognition, even awards.
Scorpio Moon- debilitated up to 3-degrees Vrischika, the native here may have a troubled mind. This
may result in an introvertic personality and a deep seated frustration or anger towards the
unfullfillment of hopes and desires. Yet when one recognises the cause of desire as nothing more than
the false-ego and hope as like a future unborn child, hunger and thirst diminishes as spiritual
awakening rises. The 9
th
house is ruled from this position of the Moon and as this is the house of
Brahman, the native will eventually pursue sadhanas and with a discriminative mind move towards
enlightenment.
184
Sagittarius Moon- the down side of the Moon in this position is 8
th
house ownership with its
instability, disease, ill-fame, loss of friends, unexpected troubles etc. But when the Moon is waxing
here good luck from unearned income or inheritance or other windfalls is possible. Psychologically
one may become zealous or a fanatic, this flip side not very much better than the down side. Natives
with this Moon in Sagittarius need to activate their spiritual natures and through penance and
propitiation raise their Self by their Self.
Capricorn Moon- under the influence of lord Vishnu and the eight Vasus, the ruling deities of the
constellations of Shravana and Dhanishtha, the natal Moon is bent toward a mind of sustenance and
provision for all types of social responsibilities, for the home, the business, ones temple or church,
marriage and family, from the ruling 7th house. The ruling lord of sign Saturn may increase or
decrease the wealth of sustenance depending on how the native propitiates him, especially during the
periods of Sadhe Sati.
Aquarius Moon- The Moon from this position rules the 6
th
house of potential diseases, wars, mental
afflictions, injuries and accidents. Aquarius is an airy sign and this mobility may be the cause of ones
debility or dementia. If viewed positively the minds mobility may enhanced by meditation ones
spiritual progress towards Samadhi, savikalpa or nirvikalpa. This is a good house to recognise ones
spititual nature when ones radical Moon falls there in the birth chart.
Pisces Moon- as a watery sign ruled by the expansive planet Jupiter, ones emotions either heightened
by anger or lowered by complacency, from a resident Moon, can be tempered by the ruler of the 5
th

house of children, of emotion, devotion, poorvapunya, intelligence, knowledge and scholorship. Our
Guru can always guide us to the light of Jnanayoga.



Mercury and Jupiter Svadharmas
Mercury and Jupiter are Brahman planets that influence our speech and communication skills and
our higher nature to perform virtuous actions.
• Mercury in conjunction or aspect with the Moon and the 4
th
house can determine the natives
behaviour.
o Conjunction of Moon/Mercury or aspect shows an auspicious intellect. If afflicted, an
emotionally confused mind, poor mentality, communication and judgements results.
o Mercury Factors:
- Indicates our basic mentality
- Indicates capacity for communication, especially speech.
- Relates to schooling, particularly during childhood.

• Jupiter the planet of higher consciousness, brings about vairagya , discrimination, piousness,
virtuosity, and sattvik nature. Jupiter along with the 5
th
house is used to determine the qualities
of a native mind: religious consciousness, creative intelligence and capacity to learn.
o Conjunction of Moon/Jupiter or aspect from the 7
th
results in Istarishta Yoga- One then
leads a life achieving many mixed goals. When Mo and Jupiter are square: Gaja-Kasari
Yoga- This makes the native good, virtuous, generous and capable. Becomes famous as a
constructive or creative power. When the Moon is exalted or is in his own house and is
aspected by Jupiter auspicious results of good judgement, ethical, charitable etc . Jupiter in
the 9
th
from the Moon creates much wealth, learning, wisdom, strength and fame.
Generally the conjuctions or aspects of Jupiter/Moon give good yogas and the astrologer
can determine the virtuosity of a native in the rasi chart by their positions. If afflicted in
these positions the opposite is true.


185
The Natures of the Signs or Houses

Importance of the Fourth House in Examining Manas-Mind
• The examination of the Moon and its relationship with the 4
th
house by deposition of
planets or planetary aspect and conjunction will reveal the state of happiness, home life,
relationship with the mother and general feeling of well being of the native in a birth chart.

Importance of the Fifth House in Examining Buddhi- Intellect
• The examination of the Moon and its relationship with the 5
th
house by deposition of
planets or planetary aspect and conjunction will reveal the state of capacity for children
(Male spouse), intelligence, scholarship, dharma, mantra and other attributes relating to the
Buddhi.

Importance of the 10
th
House in Examining Karmayoga -Work/Career Related Activities
• The examination of the Moon and its relationship with the 10
th
house by deposition of
planets or planetary aspect and conjunction will reveal the state of capacity for work related
activities and abilities in the different chosen fields. One should use caution when choosing
a career as given by our Lord Krishna who discusses the importance of ones nature in
choosing a career or work activity as opposed to our unnatural nature or desire in choosing
a career or work related activity.

× Bhagavad Gita – Lord Krishna says “It is better to engage in one's own occupation, even
though one may perform it imperfectly, than to accept another's occupation and perform it
perfectly. Duties prescribed according to one's nature never return adverse results. (18.47)
Every endeavor of work is covered by some fault, just as fire is covered by smoke. Therefore
one should not give up the work born of his nature, O son of Kunti, even if such work is full
of fault. (18.48) One who is self-controlled and unattached and who disregards all material
enjoyments can obtain, by practice of renunciation, the highest perfect stage of freedom from
suffering. (18.49)

Importance of the 9
th
House of Brahman in Examining Ones Divinity
The 9
th
house and its ruler is an indicator of our spiritual advancement in this lifetime. Our sanchita
karma (past life actions) is revealed in this house. Our examination of the planets there, their
association and the association of the ruler of this house can measure our spiritual nature. For example
a benefic aspect or benefic conjunction between the Ascendant lord and the 9
th
house lord or the aspect
of the Lagna sign and the 9
th
house sign in opposition (7
th
) or by Jaimini’s Rules of Signs reveals a
natives state of Grace and Dharma. Benefic planets in the 9
th
house not aspected by malefic planets
indicate a natives ability to raise his Self by the Self. Thus ones vasana’s (mental temperments) from
last life and present life can be read from this house and the D-60 shashtyamsa chart can show the
Dasa period of fructification. Planets in this house is summarized below:

Note: Intermittant can be success, failure or compromise. V= Vata , P= Pitta , K= Kapha – prakruti
constitutions. Use Prakruti Test to find your dominant constitution type (V, P, or K).

Ancient Indian sexology insists that individuals of like constitution (prakruti) be paired together-Vs
with Vs, Ps with Ps, and Ks with Ks- because of their inherent sexual proclivities. Ayurvedic wisdom
adds that types make better mates because of similar mental processes and attitudes. Dual doshas, VP,
PK and VK add a different dimension to marriage compatable types. A VP mated with a PK form one
of the most stable of relationships. A VK and a PK can also to a lesser degree form a good match.

Summary
Stable relationships are formed from common constitutional types. The mutual excess that occurs in
dual dosha pairings is easier for a couple to endure than the strained dynamic inherent in a pairing of
two people whose constitutions differ radically. Two constitutionally similar individuals involved with
one another intuitively understand the forces that motivate them. But be aware that marriage alliance is
not a simple act of choice based on only a few principles. The method of pairing by constitution is
only one of the many tools to use in choosing a life partner. This method of Prakruti pairing is based
on ones constitution or body type with sensual mental overtones. True marriage is based on spiritual
vows like one takes during the seven steps around the homa during the wedding ceremony. So it is
best to use the above table as a guide only and apply all the dharmic marriage injunctions given in this
reference manual to find ones spiritual match, really made in heaven by the Devas.

How to Time the Laying a Foundation Corner-Stone for a Building or Temple.

Rules:
o No temple or house-building to commence in the lunar months of Jyestha, Ashadha,
Bhadrapada, Aswayuja, Margasira, Pushya and Phalguna as they connote respectively,
death, destruction, disease, quarrels, misunderstandings, loss of wealth, incendiarism
and physical danger.
o Lunar months of Chaitra, Vaisakha, Sravana, Kartika and Magha are the best.
o Sun should occupy fixed signs {2, 5, 8, 11}, or at least movable signs {1, 4, 7, 10}, but
dwiswabhava or common signs {3, 6, 9, 12}, should be rejected.
o Foundations are best laid in Nakshatra’s : Rohini, Mrigashira, Chitra, Hasta, Jyestha,
Uttara Phalguni, Uttara Ashadha and Sravana. Mediocre Nakshatras are Swati, Pushya,
Anuradha, Ashwini, Satabhisha, Uttara Bhadra and Revati.
o All the odd tithis (lunar days) except the 9
th
(Navami) are good. Even tithis 2, 6, and 10
are auspicious.
o Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are the best. Saturday should be rejected as
it connotes theft. Sunday should be avoided unless strong.
o Fixed signs of planet occupancy are the best. Movable signs shoulod be rejected.
Common signs may be preferred provided they are occupied by strong benefics.
o The rising sign at the time of laying the foundation should be highly fortified by the
disposition of malefics in 3
rd
, 6
th
and 11
th
houses and benefics in kendras and trines.
o The 8
th
house must be vacant and not aspected by malefic planets.
o Varahamihira says after finishing the Puja the first foundation-stone shall be laid on the
north-eastern corner of the site. If a temple is the foundation, then place a jewel for
each Deity under the first foundation-stone.

Example 1 : To Find the Date of Commencement of Building a Temple in Nelspruit, South Africa to
the closest time to the New Year of 2008:

Using the Muhurtha Tool in Jyotish Computer Program (www.jyotishtools.com ) manipulate the
planets and constellations to form a Muhurtha chart; such that a Muhurtha chart incorporates all the
principle above, as close as possible. The Lagna was placed in Simha so as to have the 8
th
house
empty. The Papasthana Houses {3, 6, 11} were to have malefics and only Rahu in Makara was able to
be in the 6
th
. For Simha Lagna the following chart of Benefics and malefics was found:

Planets Malefics Benefics Neutral
Mercury Sun Moon
Venus Mars
Saturn Jupiter



The rules above show:
1. the month of Vaisakha was the first favourable month to the new year 2008.
2. the Sun was placed in the 2
nd
,Vrishabha, a fixed sign.
3. the Moon was placed in Uttara Phalguni a favourable nakshatra.
4. the tithi was odd – Dashami (3
rd
).
5. the day was a favourable one – Wednesday.
6. the time of laying the first foundation-stone should be 13:00 hrs on 14
th
May 2008 with benefics
195
fortifying the Lagna. Saturn is in Lagna and a malefic. The Moon is waxing so a Benefic in
Lagna.
Guru (Jupiter) in his own house is auspicious and aspects the Lagna in the 9
th
. This aspect by our
ancient astrologers of either Guru in Lagna or aspecting Lagna defeats all evils in the chart.
7. the 8
th
house is vacant as required.
8. after the Puja to Pritivi is made, place gem stones for each Deity i.e., pearl, diamond, coral, emerald,
etc. under the north east corner- stone that is to be laid first of the foundation bricks.

Checking for Vedhas and Ashtakavarga
(i) Jupiter is 5 from radical Moon. The Moon should be from the Contractors or Engineer’s birth chart.
We will assume in this example it is the same as transit Moon’s position. Then there is no Vedha from
the 4
th
house.
(ii) Jupiter is very strong at 6 bindus out of 8 and gives excellent results.
Summary: this is the best, closest time in the new year, 2008 to build a temple foundation.



Example 2: To Find the Date of Commencement of Building a Temple in Melbourne, Florida, U.S.A.
to the closest time of July, 2009.

Procedure:
To find the date of commencement of temple building proceeding from date 29 April 2009 ( the date
the chart was drawn ). Use the Muhurtha Tool in Jyotish Computer Program www.jyotishtools.com
and manipulate the planets and constellations to form a Muhurtha chart; such that this chart follows all
the injunctions of Vastu Law.



The siddhi’s above give the parameters for-



196

Date For Ground-Breaking :

1. the month of Sravana (7/21/09 to 8/19/09 ) is the first favourable month from the above proceeding
date.
2. the first possible date of commencement (ground-breaking, fence erection) is 26 July 2009.
3. the time is not to be before 07 21hrs EST for commencement (+1 hour for American Daylight
Savings Time).
4. the Sun was placed in the 4
th
sign Karka (9:39 Cancer), a moveable sign. It may be noted that
Surya is in the Nakshatra of Pushya, the most auspicious and atmakaraka of the constellation’s.
5. the Moon was placed in 10:00 Virgo (Kanya) in the nakshatra Hasta, and is most auspicious.
6. the tithi is even – Shasti (6
th
lunar day), and is most auspicious.
7. the weekday day is Sunday and a strong day because of the celebration of the festival of Naag
Panchami. A Puja to the Naga’s of the temple plot could be done and milk poured into any snake
hole found.
8. the 8
th
house is empty as required by Vastu Law. Thus the Lagna was placed in Simha (As 00:02)
so as to have the 8
th
house empty. The Papasthana Houses {3, 6, 11} are occupied by malefic
planets: Moon,
Rahu, Venus. The kendras {1, 4, 7, 10} are occupied by benefics : Jupiter and Mars. For Simha
Lagna the
following summary chart of Benefics, Malefics, and various Houses are found:


Planets Yogakaraka Malefics Benefics Neutral {3, 6, 11} {1, 4, 7,10}
Mercury Sun Moon Moon Jupiter
Venus Mars Rahu Mars
Ascendant
in Leo
Mars
Saturn Jupiter Venus



Checking for Vedhas and the Ashtakavarga of the Planets and Signs :
(i) In the above chart none of the planets in the above signs effect any vedhas. This is quite remarkable
as some always occur. This date of commencement is blessed for groundbreaking.
(ii) The strength of the planets (BAV-Binnastakavarda) are in Bindus out of 8:
Jupiter/Mars/Venus/Ascendant = 5; Mercury/Sun = 4; Moon= 6; Saturn= 2.
The strength of signs (SAV-Sarvastakavarda) are out of 35:
Vrishabha = 35 (occupied by Mangala/Sukra); Karka = 25 (occupied by Surya/Budha); Simha= 23
(Occupied by Sani, Lagna); Kanya=25 (Occupied by Chandra); Kumbha= 27 (Occupied by
Guru).



Results (Bhashya) :
There is sufficient strength of the major planets and signs to effect there positive asterisms against
any doshas. Kuja and Sukra are particularly strong planets. Mars is the yogakaraka and these
planets are in a strong rasi. They show that the strength of the administration of the temple will be
strong, positive, fair and have good mental and emotional aisvarya’s. The planet Guru in Kumbha
reveals that the Hotri of this temple will be of strong virtue of good conduct and shower
compassion on all the devotees. Sani aspects Guru from the rising Lagna. Sani always signifys
dispassion or vairagya in his positive role. In this case Sani in a negative role is weak and unable
197
to effect any negativity on the Hotri or devotees of the temple, even if they were in Sade Sati.

The Following is the Ground-Breaking Muhurtha Chart:




Date for Laying the Foundation Stone :
1. After ground-breaking date the latest possible time to lay the foundation stone is 28 July 2009
before
07:13hrs EST(+1 hr.). If this date is missed the only next possible date is 18 October 2009.
2. The Moon was placed in 6:41 Libre (orTula) in the mediocre constellation of Swati (6:40 Libre to
19:59 Libre) rather than the more auspicious Chitra (23:40 Virgo to 6:39 Libre) to give more time
to trenching after groundbreaking on Sunday the 26 July 2009. This will afford the laying of the
first foundation stone
on or before 28 July 2009.
3. After the Puja to Pritivi is made, Rishi Varahamihira says the first foundation-stone shall be laid
on the north-east corner of the site. Place gem stones under the first foundation-stone for each Deity
(i.e. pearl, diamond, red-coral, emerald, ruby, cat’s eye, blue sapphire, yellow sapphire and
hessonite).
4. Except for placing of the Moon all the other siddhi’s follow from the above ground-breaking chart.

Birth Nakshatra or Constellation in Ardra (Explained Below). Those born in Ardra have Human
Ganas (Bodys), Ruled by Rahu, Devata=Rudra and are Vata (mostly) Prakruti (Constitutions). The
Yoni is the Dog.

Attributes:
Atmakaraka Guru aspects the sign Karka- ruled by Chandra. Chandra is the 12
th
house from the divine
9
th
Chandra Bhava. This aspect gives a medatative mind, divine knowledge and worship,
emancipation/liberation, leading to Moksha. The tithi is just into a waxing Moon 50.22% remaining in
the highly significant Krishna Chaturti period of Lord Shivanataraja, during Ushas rise @ 6:23 hrs.
Rahu is with the benefic Moon in the 8
th
house of longevity with all its negative attributes, like Lord
Rudra assumed, when he drank the kalakuta poison during the churning of the Mandakini galaxy. Is
not Satya Sai Baba like this assuming into himself all the negativities and woes of mankind, purifying
those in the process? Mulitrikona Kuja, in his own house, aspects with great power, Satya Sai Babas
Lagna. This makes him almost invincible. Dispassionate Ketu in the 2
nd
house of speech gives him
powers to enunciate the Sastras to his devotees; Guru in the 3
rd
house gives him divine communicative
powers that infuse the mantras into their minds and purify them. Surya-Atman, Budha-Buddhi, Sukra-
Rudraguru, Shani-vairagya, are all in the birth Lagna forming the saguna and nirguna-body, the
203
svarupyam and naama that is Satya Sai Baba. Sri Lagna in the 12
th
house is Laxmis blessing to the
Lagna and his birth. Yet we must not be deceived by his jaati or varna for its fall in Kumbha ruled by
Shani and Rahu indicates his birth was for Seva, service to the devotees, and not for any other purpose
in the varna indicated by Shani. He is here renunciative of all personal wealth and has not Satya Sai
Baba opened up hospitals, clinics, and schools all free of fees and tuition to the poor?
Finally the key to the interpretation of this divine chart is to be found in Jaimini analysis of the D-9
Navamsa chart of Satya Sai Baba. If the above view was from Maharishi Parasara, and the following
chart from Jaimini corrolates then there can be no doubts to Satya Sai Babas divinity and truthful
nature.

Jaimini Analysis
The D-9 chart follows:

The atmakaraka was stated to be Guru. He forms the
karakamsa lagna (KL) in D-9. He is in Kanya . The

The longevity charts follow:
Sutras-
(i) If all the Trik house lords {6, 8, 12} and the 22
nd
-Drekkana lord are in the rasi or Janma
Lagna and at least one of the transiting planets : Saturn, Jupiter, Sun or Moon are there then
this 1
st
Muhurta chart is the time when bodily debilitation starts.
(ii) If all of the above lords cannot form a conjunction in rasi lagna then place as many of these
transiting parameters as possible in lagna and place the balance in powerful aspecting
positions.
o Then this 1
st
Muhurta chart is the time of life when debilitation of body starts.
o If after the 1
st
Muhurtha is taken, the astrologer finds Jupiter already in Revati (sign of
Pisces) then that is the time of death. Jupiter already in Revati is found in the charts of
meritorious souls, or jivanmukta’s.
(iii) If Jupiter is not in Revati, place Saturn in the star Bharani in 13:20 degrees Mesha (Aries).
Saturn is rotated clockwise to this position in the Muhurtha chart if his position is
greater than 13:40 Leo (end of Magha). If Saturn is located less than this rotate Saturn
anticlockwise to the nakshatra Bharani. i.e., if Saturn is behind Simha in houses 9 to 12
- rotate anticlockwise. If Saturn is in front in houses 1 to 8 and greater than 13:40
Magha in Simha , rotate clockwise.
o This is the 2
nd
Muhurtha time.
o If after the 2
nd
Muhurtha is taken, the astrologer finds Jupiter has moved to Revati - the
star in the sign of Pisces, then that is the time of death. Jupiter in Revati in 2
nd

Muhurtha is found in the charts of meritorious souls.
o If Jupiter is not in Revati; after the 2
nd
Muhurtha, move Jupiter clockwise or
anticlockwise - depending on the stage of life taken from the chart above - to the first
trine position to the Divine Mother in Revati.
⇒ Jupiter is moved clockwise if age is in 1
st
or 2
nd
stage to the first trine
position ( 5, 9 ) - 16:40 Sign to Revati in Pisces.
⇒ Jupiter is moved retrograde (in exultation) anti-clockwise if age in 3
rd
stage
of life -over 66.7 years- to the first trine position 16:40 Sign to Revati in
Pisces.
o This is the 3
rd
Muhurtha time and the time of death.




205
Bharani is said to be the Nakshatra where Yama guides the soul to the astral plane , where it
can experience the result of its karma and vasanas from the samskaras and prepare for the next
life. This is Yama’s first visit. This is the time when one asks Yama to extend life further or
complete it soon. Bharani starts in 13:20 Aries. This is the 1
st
Muhurta or time.
Magha is ruled by the ancestors. Magha Nakshatra causes a change of state or condition, a kind of
death. Usually it shows that we are coming to the end of a cycle. This nakshatra is a marker on the
movement of Saturn either to extend or to retract, the years of one’s life cycle. Magha ends in the
sign of 13:40 Leo.
Revati is the great womb of the Divine Mother, revealing the end as well as new beginnings. This
is the 2
nd
Muhurtha given in life charts.The primary motivation of this asterism is moksha. It is
also associated with deep faith and devotion to Brahman. Meritorious souls end their life cycle in
this star. Pushan the protector of kine is invoked in the Vedas for safe travel and protects the soul
in its travel to the world of the Deva’s. Pushan the deity of Revati guides the soul to the third
world. Revati starts in 16:40 Pisces.
Finally the 3
rd
Muhurtha date of punya chakra or passing away time is Guru or Jupiter in trine to the
Divine Mother in Revati. After the body is destroyed by the loss of Prana- the vital force, the soul
with its attributes (Avaranas) is to transmigrate away from the dissoluted material body, pass in
auspicious proximity to the Tara Revati- the womb of the Divine Mother of the Universe and journey
either in the northerly (uttarayana) or southerly (dakshinayana) direction, in its astral body of light, to
the region of its merit. Some will pass through Surya to Satyaloka others to the 3
rd
plane of
Chandraloka . Lord Krishna explains this process in the Bhagavad Gita (chapt 8, verse 22-26) and
Muni Vayasa in the Brahma Sutras.

• Satya Sai Baba ends his life cycle here on Earth in Ashlesha. The significance of his birth
in the Ardra star and end in Ashlesha cannot be more emphasized than this:
Lord Shiva starts the Maha Shiva Ratri when the Ardra star is bright on the horizon during the
month of Phalguna on the cathurdashi of krishna paksha, then the Moon is in Sravana.
Satya Sai Baba had his birth in the nakshatra of Ardra on the chaturdashi of krishna paksha in
the auspicious month of Margasira and ends his life in the Rahu/Sun Dasa of the star
representing the coiled snake or kundalini (Ashlesha) as its deity is Sarpa or Seshnaga and lies
completely within the Zodiacal sign of Karka (Cancer). This sign of Cancer is ruled by
Chandra (Moon) which as the Mother, a female sign, is Devi Seshnagi the mother of
Laksmana the mighty brother of Lord Sri Ramachandra. The Nakshatra Ashlesha is ruled by
Budha (Mercury). Budha as the divine Mother Saraswati gives the power of speech and divine
knowledge. Notice in the chart Jupiter is with Mercury. This is highly auspicious. Sri
Ramakrishna ended his life cycle in Hasta the star that promotes the practice of meditation and
yoga to which he was an exponent of, so to Sri Satya Sai Baba ends his mission on Earth in a
constellation that promotes the power of the kundalini that sits at the base of the spine that
gives energy when awakened during meditation and spins the wheels at each chakra of the
body. as it moves up to the sahasrara chakra of Lord Sadashiva; thus the electrifying shakti to
elevate the mind and intellect to the outer body superconscious state- the dharana of elevation
to the metaphysical enlightened state to which the 5-elements cannot affect even the body left
behind, is represented by Satya Sai Baba leaving the earth or reentering the earth during 2026.
The dictum of Satya Sai Baba is,’ Love All, Serve All’. By practicing this and learning from
Satya Sai Baba how to elevate our mind out of our mundane body existence, for by raising the
kundalini, we will experience the enlightenment, the bliss of the Self.
“Om Sayeeshwaraya Vidmahe Sathya Devaya Dheemahi Tannah Sarvah Prachodayaat.”

The Shiva-Shakti Mahasamadhi Chart


In 1960 Satya Sai Baba said he had 59 years left to live because he was to give up his body (tyage
kshepani shakti) to make way for the third incarnation in the trinity of Shrdi Sai Baba-the dharma of
work, Satya Sai Baba-the dharma of worship and become Prema Sai Baba-dharma of wisdom. He said
this third incarnation will take place about 8 years after his death (7yr. 1mo. 6 days from above chart).
Shrdi Sai Baba was the avatar of Shiva, Satya Sai Baba is the avatar of Shiva-Sakti and Prema Sai
Baba would be the avatar of Shakti although he said he will be in the male gender.
The natural chart of his mahasamadhi during 2026 fits in well with his divine nature and purva punya
(passing). The star Ashlesha represents the kundalini – electrifying shakti and spiritual enligtenment.
Then what attributes does the chart hold when he gives up his prana earlier in a 2019 mahasamadhi?
Since the parameters of the 2026 chart must also be the same as the 2019 chart for mahasamadhi - the
question is, is this possible? Absolutely!! Look at the 2019 chart in the sign of Karka (Cancer)
compared to the 2026 chart. Budha is still there, retrograde and exaulted! Guru (Jupiter) must still
aspect the tara (star) Revati in Meena (Pisces) for the chart to be a Mahasamadhi chart and it does so
retrograde and exalted) in the sign of Vrischika-Scorpio!
Thus the Avatar takes the form of Prema-Shakti and conquers evil through Prema and Vijnanam-Love
and Wisdom. This will be a great awakening for non-devotees and a blessing to devotees from Prema
Sai Baba in the world after 2019 and the 2026 chart would be the birth chart of the next and final
incarnation.

Astrology and Cancer:
Cases of cancer can be diagnosed from the Moon, Mars, Saturn and Rahu;
cancer is directly connected with Rahu, afflicted (waning) Moon, afflicting Jupiter or Sani; and the
signs, Virgo and Pisces. Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn can be involved. Any relation
between the lords of the 6
th
and the 8
th
makes for a high intensity of the ailment leading to cancer. In
any chart the 6
th
is the house of disease, and the 8
th
that of the nature of death. Cancer is an infection of
the blood, and blood comes under the Moon and Mars, also under the Sun. The maintenance of the
cells is regulated by the Sun, the Moon and Jupiter; and any affliction to these comes from Mars and
Saturn. Rahu governs any form of malignant growth. The 6
th
and the 8
th
house lords are Shani and
Kuja, who are in the 6
th
house of disease. The significance of Kuja and Shani in this regard are
summarised:
• Mars – blood, blood pressure, marrow (Leukemia), neck, uterus (ovarian cancer),
inflammations (that lead to cancer), osteoporosis (bone decay).
• Saturn – legs, hands and mouth.

The fact that these planets are in the chart in bad signs and conjoined does not mean one
will get cancer. One has to examine all the factors; the periods of the planets, their
strengths, and the divisional charts D-6 (health troubles), D-8 (sudden and unexpected
213
troubles), D-16 (happiness, comforts and discomforts) and D-30 (diseases,
punishments). Prognosis can be determined by the strengths or weaknesses of Kuja, Shani
and the sign they are in:

Kalapurushas:
• Face – the factors to be considered are : Moon, Venus, the 2
nd
house and Taurus, besides
Mars, Saturn and Rahu.
• Lungs – come under the 3
rd
house, Gemini, Aries, Libra and Mercury.
• Throat – is mostly governed by houses the 2
nd
, the 7
th
and the 11
th
.
• Shoulder – involves houses, the 2
nd
, the 12
th
, the 3
rd
and the 5
th
, Atmakaraka, Jupiter, the Sun
and Ketu.
• Breast Cancer – refers to the 3
rd
house, Gemini, Mercury and the Moon.
• Cancer of the Stomach – comes under the houses the 5
th
, 6
th
and the 8
th
, Leo the Sun and
Jupiter as the lord of the Drekkana occupied by Saturn.
• Cancer of the Spleen – as that of the lungs is indicated by the Moon and Rahu.
• Cancer of the Hips- is controlled by houses the 6
th
, the 9
th
, the 4
th
and the 10
th
, Sagittarius, and
Jupiter.
• Cancer of the Spine – is indicated by Karka, Capricorn and Saturn.
• Cancer of the Blood (Lukemia) – is indicated by the Moon and Mars, and also by the Sun’s
relation to these and to Saturn.
• Cancer of the Gall Bladder – refers to the 8
th
house and to Scorpio and Pisces.
• Uterine Cancer – refers to the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and the 7
th
house.

Analysis:
• Use the Chara Paryaya Dasa in Jagannatha 7.33 to diagnose for Cancer.
• The period from the Chara Paryaya Dasa of D-6 Health Chart below is:
Ma/Sa in Gemini on to 2057-01-15 to 2057-11-17. the cancers that can take place from
Gemini during this time are the Lungs and or Breast taken from the list above. For the planets
Saturn and Mars to give their malefic effects they have to be strong and without opposition
from other planets in the birth chart (vedhas). The planet strengths are: Shani= 2 (weak),
Kuja=5 (strong) and the sign strength = 30 (strong). There are no vedhas.

+ Cancer is possible because Kuja is strong in Chara Paryaya Dasa of the health chart.

+ Treatment is prevention by palpation and observation of the breast area throughout life and
especially leading years up to 2057.














214


• The period from the Chara Paryaya Dasa of D-8 below is:
Ma/Sa in Pisces on 2081-03-16 to 2087-03-16. the cancers that can take place from Pisces during
these times are cancer of the gall bladder. The planet strengths are: Shani= 1 (weak), Kuja=3
(weak) and the sign strength = 27 (below average strength). There are no vedhas. Cancer of the
gall bladder is unlikely due to weakness of planets giving effect.


















• The period from the Chara Paryaya Dasa of D-16 below is:
Ma/Sa in Aquarius on 2011-03-16 to 2016-03-15. The cancers that can take place from Aquarius
during this time are none.























215

• The period from the Chara Paryaya Dasa of D-30 below is:
Ma/Sa in Saggitarius on 2048-03-15 to 2054-03-16. The cancers that can take place from
Saggitarius during this time are cancer of the hips. The planet strengths are: Shani= 2 (weak),
Kuja=2 (weak) and the sign strength = 26 (below average strength). Cancer of the hip is
unlikely due to extreme weakness of planets .There are no vedhas.

Jaimini Sutram
by Maharishi Jaimini

+ Summary of the Sutrams for Birth Chart Analysis:-

Aspecting signs and aspecting planets within those signs follow the twelve signs of the Zodiac
beginning with Mesha (Aries). They are classified sequentially into Cardinal signs {1, 4, 7, 10},
Fixed signs {2, 5, 8, 11}, and Mixed signs {3, 6, 9, 12}.
Sutra 1.2 : The Cardinal signs aspect the Fixed signs; the Fixed signs aspect the Cardinal signs; the
Mixed signs aspect themselves.
Sutra 1.3 : The planets occupying a sign have aspects similar to those of the sign concerned.
Notes: This means that planets in signs aspecting a sign is the same as if the planet was in
the aspected sign.

Sutra 1.26 : in all odd signs the counting is to be in the right (clockwise ) direction.
In even signs the direction is to be in the reverse (anti-clockwise) direction.
Sutra 1.27 : in some cases this procedure is not applicable.
E Example: in sthira dasa method of longevity the Vrishamapada – odd group of signs are
: {1,2,3,7,8,9} the Samapada –even group of signs are : {4,5,6,10,11,12}

Unknown Birth Time –Vishveshvaran

The importance of the exact moment of birth need not be stressed. And one of the toughest jobs of an
astrologer is to find the exact moment of birth before venturing to make any predictions. In most cases
the exact time of birth will not have been recorded.From my own experience there are two methods to
use to find the birth time and which one you use depends on the exiting parameters of time :
Data 1, birth chart that is formed when only the place of birth, year and month of birth are known.
Data 2, birth chart that is formed when the place of birth, year and month of birth and day of birth
are known.

According to ancient astrologer Varahamihira, there is an intimate connection existing between the
planetary positions at conception and those at birth. Therefore it is possible to rectify the time of birth
by adjusting the Moon and Ascendant at birth and at conception (prasna).




+ 5112 Method of Finding Birth Time

(i) Find the Constellation:-
Note the range of the constellations on the 27th day of Janruary 1942 @ 00:00h and 23:59:59h from
the following two charts:The number of dwadashamsha (D-12) present in the longitude of Moon at the
time of conception (prasna chart) added to the said longitude of the Moon will give the sign in which
the Moon will be at the time of birth in the 9
th
or 10
th
month of conception – sutra 4.20, Brihat Jataka.

• The Nakshatra at birth is the Moon in Rohini or Mrigasira Nakshatra.
Mo in Taurus, 15:29 Rohini @ 0:0:1hrs on 1942/01/27
Mo in Taurus 27:24 Mrigasira, @ 23:59:59hrs on 1942/01/27

• Note the AK (Atmakaraka planet) = Shani
• In the Sarvatobhadra chart find the vowel-consonants of each constellation and note the set
which has most of vowel-consonants in the natives full name : ‘Vishveshvaran’. That will be
the birth constellation.
Rohini= { a, u, lu, ai, kh, v, au, r }; Mrigarsira = { a, l, v, o, ah, j, k, p}. Most of the vowel-
consonants are in ‘vishveshvaran’ {v, r} a subset of Rohini. Rohini is chosen!
Note: From Varahamihira, in the dwadamsas D-12 chart there are 7 dwadamsas and that from
Rohini moves the constellation to Purva Phalguni from which the Muhurtha chart would give
another date in February. This cannot be as the native was born in Janruary. Rohini must be
the fixed Nakshatra as it is in the month of Janruary.

226
(ii) Finding the Period (day or night) of Birth Time by Hora:-
• The Hora for daytime and night-time are:
Hora –; divide a sign into two equal parts (D-2).
Odd: The first half of an odd sign is ruled by the Su. The second half by the Mo.

Even : The first half of an even sign is ruled by the Mo. The second half by the Su.
• From the sign occupied by the Moon is it an odd sign or an even sign? What half of sign does
the Moon lie in?
o The Moon lies in an even and second half of sign, indicating the day time.

(iii) Find the Pada Period of Birth Time from Syllables of a Name:-
A chart is used for each Nakshatra to translate the syllable of a name and note which pada it
falls in.
Note: Name and form constitute the whole universe of existence (Sat). Therefore a persons
name given by ones parents is intuitive knowledge taken from the cosmic memory of that
parent. The syllables of that name form the mental cognition of that childs existence.

Pada 1 Pada2 Pada3 Pada4
Rohini : o (gh) vaa (n~) vii (Dh) vuu (Sh)

Note: the navamsa name is in brackets.

• From the chart of Naama (sounds) find the pada (time) from the sarvatobhadra chart vowels
and consonants that are in a square formed from the Moon (Mo) to the Ascendant (As). The
syllable set is :
{a, lu, v, o, ah, k, h, au, am, luu, d, uu, m t~, p, r}; the subset for Rohini is {d, h, v, aa, uu}. The
combination set is: {dh, dv, daa duu, hv, haa, huu, vaa, vuu}. The set {dh, vaa, vuu} is
possible. Which one is it?
• The strongest vowel-consonant is the intersection of the Mo and the As. Which is : {aa}.
Therefore vaa is the strongest combination. Pada 2 is chosen!
• Each pada has a time of 6 hours running from midnight to 06:00hr for the 1
st
period; 0600-
12:00 for the 2
nd
period; 12:00-18:00 for the 3
rd
period and 18:00-24:00 for the 4
th
period.

(iv) Find the Complete Birth Time from Transverse of Longitude:-
• To find the complete time use the Naam-pada and Hora and find the degrees of transverse
of the lord of the strongest trinal sign.
• To find the complete time use the Naam-pada and Hora and find the degrees of transverse
of the lord of the strongest trinal sign from the strongest Moon-lagna or Ascendant-lagna.
In tha Ashtakavafga chart the Moon –lagna is 21 and the Ascendant-lagna is 34.The
Ascendant is stronger.
o The Ascendant lagna has a strength of 34 SAV; the 5
th
sign from that has a strength
of 31 SAV and the 9
th
sign 27 SAV. The Lagna is the strongest trine.
o The amount of time is represented by the number of degrees transversed by the lord
of the strongest trinal sign. The lord of the Lagna is Venus at 24:05 degrees Tula is
found to be the strongest transversing trinal planet and using the rule of three:
[24.08/30]*13.33=10:42:12 degrees in the constellation of Rohini. Note: there are
800 minutes and 13:20 degrees in a Nakshatra. Adding 10:42:12 degrees to Rohini
which starts at 10:00 Taurus= 20:42:12 Vrishabha.
o In the Muhurtha chart move the Moon to 20:42:12 Taurus and note the time of this chart to
find the birth time. The final birth chart is below. Note the time 10:32:12

Symbolic Points : Brahma, Mahesvara and Rudra are used to determine the time of death.
Brahma:











Mahesvara:
• The lord of the 8

Ma is the Mahesvara.
Find Rudra. Whomever is stronger among the lords of the 8

Short, Medium and Long life Determinants by Kendras, Panapharas and Apoklimas:

Sutra 2.1.19 : if the lords of the 2
nd
and the 8
th
from lagna are strong and occupy Kendras {1, 4, 7,
10}, Panapharas {2, 5, 8, 11}, or Apoklimas {3, 6, ,9,12}, they cause respectively long, middle and
Calculate Brahma:
E Example: in D-1 chart , the strongest sign between Lagna (27 SAV) Mesha and the 7
th
sign Tula is Tula
(30 SAV). The lords of the 6
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
are : Ju, Ve and Me; counting is clkwise as Tula is in an odd
sign. Me is the strongest, behind the lagna (7
th
-12
th
signs) and in an odd sign (Kumbha). Brahma is Me.
Sa is the Atmakaraka.
E Note: Compute these values without a computer program as they are likely to be in error as the Jaimini
system is unconventional. See Jaimini Sutram by Prof. P.S. Sastri, PhD. , D.Litt.

short lives. In the same way we have to consider the lords of the 2
nd
and the 8
th
house from the
AK also.

Notes: of the lords of the 2
nd
and the 8
th
, we have to find out who is stronger. It is the stronger
one we have to consider and see whether he is in the kendras, panap1haras or apoklimas. If the
lagna is odd, the 8
th
house is counted clkwise; and if it is an even sign the 8
th
is taken in the
anti-clkwise manner.
The 8
th
house lord is Ma @ 5BAV and occupies the Lagna and in his own sign, this is a
Kendra. The 2
nd
house lord is VE @ 4BAV. Mars is stronger.
Ma in a Kendra gives long-life.


Notes: Shoola rasi’s are the trikona signs {1, 5, 9}. If one has a short life, death comes before
the period (dasa) of 5
th
sign from Rudra begins. If it is medium life, death is between the
periods of the 5
th
and the 9
th
signs from Rudra. If there is long life, death is in the period of the
9
th
to the 12
th
signs.

Sutra 2.1.38: even when the weaker Rudra is aspected by a benefic and is with a benefic,
longevity extends up to the end of Shula rasi period.
Sutra 2.1.39:The above result is not to be predicted if a malefic other than the Sun is associated
with the condition mentioned in the previous sutra.

Notes: the Su must be in conjunction or aspect with the 1
st
, 5
th
or 9
th
signs for the Shula rasi
periods to be predicted.

o The Sun is in Makara thus in aspect with the 5
th
sign (by Jaimini’s Aspect Chart). For Jaimini
a Bhava and a Rasi are the same thing. The Shula Dasa is applicable thus from sutra 2.1.39.
The Shula Dasa follows using Jh 7.33 :

Shoola dasa (troubles and death):

Maha Dasas:

Ar: 1942-01-27 (10:32:13) - 1951-01-27 (18:04:13)

Pi: 2041-01-27 (19:55:49) - 2050-01-28 (3:19:40)

Sutra 2.1.45 : depending on the short, medium or long life death comes in the periods of the 1
st

Shula signs respectively.
o The 3

Sthira Dasa
Jaimini called this dasa Sthira because the number of years in each dasa is fixed. This dasa is
important in fixing also the time of death.
• Movable signs {1, 4, 7, 10} – chara - have a duration of 7 years each.
• Fixed signs {2, 5, 8, 11} –sthira - have a duration of 8 years each.
• Common signs {3, 6, 9, 12}-dvisvabhava -have a duration of 9 years each.

+ The Sthira dasa starts from the sign where Brahma is located.
- When Brahma is an odd sign, the dasas follow the clkwise pattern
- When Brahma is an even sign the dasas follow the anti-clkwise pattern.
⇒ Example Chart : Brahma is Me. This is an odd sign so the sequence is clkwise. Me
in Kumbha is a fixed sign: 02:15. For 8 years this is 30-degrees. Thus:
(2.25/30)*8=0.6years
- Thus in Janma Rashi each planetary transverse and sign is totaled from the 12 signs to give an age of
longevity.
- As there are 12 signs, there are 12 antardasas in each dasa.
- The sub-periods of movable, fixed, and common signs have a duration of 7, 8, 9
months
- The antardasas of a sign are clkwise if odd sign or anti-clkwise if even sign.

Children
Having Children (i) :
* Ju the significator of children is in the 5
th
the house of children for male
natives.

Parashara’s combinations for having children :
• Su, Ra, Me, in the 5
th
while Ju is well associated (aspecting these planets,
conjunct, in a kona, etc.)
• 5
th
lord in a benefic sign with a benefic aspect while Ju is in a kendra.
• Interchange of the 1
st
and 5
th
lords, when Ju is in a kendra or kona.
• The lord of the 5
th
or Ju in the 5
th
aspected by or associated by benefics.
• A very strong Ju in the 5
th
, while the lord of lagna is also strong.

Having Children (ii) :
= Parashara’s combination for children- these give many children:
− Exchange of houses by the lords of the 1
st
and the 5
th
, while Ju is in
a trine or in an angle;
− Lord of the 5
th
or Ju in the 5th and associated with benefics;
− A powerful Ju in the 5
th
and a powerful lord of lagna;
Ju in vargottama and in the amsa of a benefic lord of lagna associated with the lord of the 5
th

* Dr. P.S Sastri, Ma, Phd. , D. Litt ;
− From our experience we find that Ju gives more daughters than sons.
− Ju at times denies only sons (daughters are given only); this depends
on whether such a Ju has the aspect of or conjunction with masculine
planets { Su, Ma , Ju } or feminine planets { Mo, Ve, Me , Sa }. [
Note: {Me , Sa } are also the eunuch planets. ]
234
− Our experience falsifies the view that the significator Ju denies
children by placement in the 5
th
. If he denies children, it is because
Ma, Sa, Ra or Ur is associated with him.
− Ju or Ve in the 5
th
, or Ma in the houses of Me gives sons.
Some combinations :
= If the 5
th
house or its lord is a male rasi or amsa, or is associated with male
planets, there are sons. If it is a female rasi or amsa, or is associated with
female planets, there are daughters. We have to reckon the 5
th
house from
Ju also.
= Lord of 5 with a benefic in a benefic kendra or kona – a son early in life.
= Strong Ju in 5 aspected by the lord of lagna – son.

Twelfth House :

= When it is not clear from the 5
th
, 9
th
or 11
th
houses that sons or daughters can
be predicted, looking to the 12
th
house can show probable cause for a birth of
at least the first child in a natives chart.
= The feminine or masculine aspects of a sign or a planet determine the gender
of one or more children from the 12
th
house; if several planets are in the 12
th

determine the strength of each and choose the strongest to deceide gender.
The 12
th
house is ruled by Ju. A son will come first.
= When Ve is in his own house having a relation to the house of children { 5, 9,
12 } , he definitely gives a son.
= Look to the 5
th
, 9
th
and 12
th
from the Mo if the Mo is stronger than the As
when determining children.
From the Mo stronger than the As ( Mo=5BAV+ longer longitude; As=5BAV) the 9
th
house is
occupied by Ve and Su – a son and daughter will be born.



Calculating Sputha:
From the husband’s chart add the longitudes (from Aries) of Su, Ve and Ju.
− The remainder after expunging multiples of 360-deg. is the resultant sign and degree –
Bija sphuta.
From the wife’s chart add the longitudes of the Mo, Ma and Ju.
− The result gives the sign and degree of Kshetra sphuta.
• Calculating the degrees of longitude of the planets Mo, Ma and Ju will determine the
ability for a women to have children.
• The results gives the sign and degree of Kshetra sphuta.
• There will be children if these points are associated with the lords of 1, 5, 7, or 9.
− These two sensitive points should not be associated with the 8
th
lord, or with Me or
Sa or Ke.
- There should be no malefics in the kendras or konas of these points, otherwise there
will be no children.





235
Add the longitudes of the Su, Mo, Ma, Ju and Ve.
− If the result falls in a kendra { 1, 4, 7, 10 }a child is born in the first part of life.;

− if it falls in {2, 5, 8, 11}, it is the second part of life;
− and if it falls in { 3, 6, 9, 12 }, it will be in the last part of life.

5. 378.3833-360 =18.3833
6. 18.3833 =18 22’59”
7. Result: Aries the 1
th
house is in {1, 5,7, 9} – There will be children in the first part of life

Number of children (NOC) :
• Examine the 5
th
( 9
th
) house or its lord from the sign occupied by Ju or the sign
representing the navamsha having the Su.
• The number of children is to be asertained from the lord of the 5
th
in a man’s chart and from
the lord of the 9
th
in a women’s chart - if there is a child continue calculating from the
sequences below until a value < 0.50 is obtained. The total is the NOC.
• Mens: the sequence of possible houses are : { 5, 7, 9, 11, 1, 3 }
• Womens: the sequence is { 9, 11, 1, 3, 5, 7 }.
• Multiply the elapsed navamshas (in minutes) of the house by the benefic aspect in Rupas.
Divide this by 200. The quotient gives the number of children. The elapsed navamsha’s of the
required house are found by dividing the degrees of longitude of the planet found in that house
by 3 20’ (one navamsha) , and converting this result to minutes by multipling by 60.
• Formulas for finding Rupas
Noting that 1 Rupa is equal to 60 Virupas-
The first step is to find the angular distance counting from the aspecting planet forwards
zodiacally to the aspected body. The exact degrees of both should be known for this. Let’s call
this difference D. Obviously D will always be between 0° and 360°. If D<30° or D>300°, then
the Sphuta Drishti [degree aspect] is always zero. i.e S=0 for 300<D<30. For the rest of the
values there are different rules of calculation depending on the value of D as follows (S means the
value of Sphuta Drishti expressed in Virupas):

Regarding Varna: (caste etc. ) judge them from the 11
th
house from the Swakaraka ( lord of As)
• If the 11
th
is owned by Ju, the native is a Brahmana.
• In the case of other planets, following Krishniya and Jaimini and judging the
planets, determine the caste on the basis of the lord of the 11
th,
count is clkwise
irrespective of odd or even signs.
• When the Svakaraka and the lord of the 11
th
from him have the association (aspect
or conjunction) of Ra , the native is a Chandala.
• If such a Ra is with Sa, the native is a Mlechcha (Westerner).
• The association of Ma indicates that he is a Nishada or Pulinda (forest tribe).
• The association of Ve makes him a member of the royal family.
• When Sa is exalted in this combination, the native is a Sudra and if Sa is
debilitated, he is an outcaste.
• When Budha aspects or is in conjunction with the lord of the 11
th
or when the lord
of the 11
th
is the signs Mithuna or Kanya and is aspected or with Budha the caste is
Vaisya. If there is no association and the 11
th
sign is Mithuna or Kanya the caste is
Brahmin.
• If there is more planets, the caste is determined by the strongest.

1. Ist sequence=5
th
from Ju in D-1 chart, lord of sign is Me ;
2. Thus in rashi the distance D is from Ju to Me.
3. Aspect degrees are : Ju : 30 00 -18 28’= 11 32’
Houses in between : 8*30 = 240 00’
Me : = 02 15’
D= 242 15’
From formulas for Me : 240<D<270 : S= 150-D/2
S= 150-242 15’/2
S= 28.875virupas
Thus R=0.48125 rupas
Me elapsed in minutes is :
T=02:15=2.25/3.333=0.675 navamsha’s *
60=40.50 min.

th
house from the lord of lagna (Mars) is Kumbha ruled by Shani. Mercury is in
the 11
th
house. By Jaimini Sutra 1.2 and 1.3 the 11
th
house and the planets therein aspect the
first house or Lagna. The Lagna is occupied by Mars and Saturn. Thus Mercury aspects Saturn.
The native is a Vaisya.



Jaimini Sutras
The karakamsa is the position of the Atmakaraka in Navamsa.
Jaimini says that if Ketu the moksa käraka is in the twelfth house
from kärakamsa (or aspects the 12th house), then the native has
final emancipation. Further, if these signs are Pisces or Cancer
(the natural mokña trines), or as some commentators observed
that Moksha is assured if the karakamsa lagna is Mesha or
Dhanush and there is a strong benefic in it or a strong
benefic aspecting it.

The 9
th
Divine House of Bhagya (D-9 Navamsa)
Thus, the ninth house from the AK , in the navamsa chart,
reveals the tendancy of the native to be righteous, truthful and
devoted to his teachers and elders - this is the House of Dharma
of Bhagya of Tapas . Benefics must be there to guide the
devotee. Malefics there misguide him. If Shani and Rahu are associated with the 9
th
house the
native betrays his teachers and elders. From the Kärakamsa, the deity seen in the twelfth house
becomes the Ishta Devata as it guides thesoul towards the high spiritual ideal.

Results

• Sutra 1.2.70- The natives karakamsa lagna is in Dhanush and aspected by a strong benefic planet Guru (5-BAV). Shani
is only a 3 BAV and cancelled by strength of Guru - Moksha is assured.

• .Sutras 1.2.48 and 1.2.49 . The natives 9
th
house from AK in Navamsa has Ma and Ve. Venus is a Malefic and Mars is a
Benefic and the lord of janma rashi.

o Only sutra 1.2.49 applies as Ma strength 3-BAV and Ve strength 5 BAV is greater.

Notes:
Ma, Ve, Ke are in trine to the Ak= Sa a malefic planet. Thus this implies that mantra, tantra
and yantra knowledge is used by the native to invoke supernatural powers, and since this
planets is deposited in that positions 50% of its spititual energy is available. Papadrste
nigrahaka applies and the native has the powers to summon spirits, grahas etc by using
magical formulae.

“Trikoëe päpa dvaye mäntrika” implies that if two malefic planets are in trines to kärakamsa
the person is a mäntrikaimplying knowledge of mantra çastra and/or powers of invoking the
supernatural by magical formulae (Sutra 1.2.83). Ke and Ve are in trine to karakamsa lagna.
The maximum number of malefic planets influencing the trines can be four and give this 100%
strength. This will decrease to 75% for three, 50% for two and so on. The knowledge grades
can be täntrika, yäntrika and Mantrika respectively. Täntrika is derived from the word “tan” or
Body and “trai” to control. Thus, a täntrika can control the bodies of others or influence them
in a positive or negative manner. Yäntrika is one who uses implements and drawings (yantra).

Mantrika is one who uses Mantra alone. These are also grades of knowledge of the occult.
The point to be noted is that this only gives the extent of occult and spiritual knowledge. How
is this knowledge going to be used is the next question.
“Päpadåste nigrahaka”: if malefic planets also aspect these malefic planets in trines (or if at
least three malefic planets are in trines), then the native has the powers to summon spirits,
grahas etc by using magical formulae (Sutra 1.2.84).
Whatever planets are in trines to the kärakamsa, they will take the native towards spirituality
(Sutra 1.2.85) Natural malefic planets are normally inclined to take the native away from the
higher spiritual truths, but if they are in trines to the kärakamsa, they will follow the diktat of the
ätmakäraka and steer life towards realization of the spiritual self. Consider Mars in a situation of
extreme anger – if such a Mars is in trines to kärakamsa, the native will never use violent
methods, and will instead look for magical formulae or other means like a coral ring to
counter the negative influences.

Trikona Dasa
Sutra 3.4.22 : now the Trikona dasa is being explained. In Sutras 1.1.25 and 26 it is said that in the
case of odd signs the counting is clockwise and that in the even signs the counting is anti-clockwise.
Sutra 1.1.27 stated that this principle does not apply sometimes:
According as the sign in question belongs to the Vishamapada or Samapada group, the years given
by a sign are derived by counting in the clockwise or anit-clockwise manner. The numner of rasis
intervening between the sign under consideration and its lord give us the years. (thus maximum of
12-years per sign ). This is the same as the method of Chara dasa. There we divided by 30-degrees
( for 1-year) into the total degrees given to the distance from a sign under consideration to its lord,
taking into consideration the sign’s grouping.
iv. The exceptions are in the case of Simha and Kumbha which follow anti-clockwise
sequence, and the case of Vrischika and Vrishaba which have a clockwise
sequence.
v. the Vrishamapada–odd group of signs thus are : {1,2,3,7,8,9} follow clockwise;
vi. the Samapada–even group of signs are : {4,5,6,10,11,12} follow anti-clockwise.

If the 1
st
dasa rasi belongs to the Vishama pada group, the subsequent dasas will be those of
the signs: 5, 9, 2, 6, 10, 3, 7, 11, 4, 8, and 12 from it in this order.
o For example if Vrischika is the strongest trinal sign that is no. 1 in the above sequence-
clkwise to its lord; the 5
th
from that sign (Vrischika) is Meena –anticlkwise to its lord; the
9
th
sign is Karka-anticlkwise to its lord; the 2
nd
from that sign (Vrischika) is Dhanush-
clkwise to its lord; the 6
th
from that sign is Mesha-anticlkwise to its lord; the 10
th
from
that sign is Simha-anticlkwise to its lord; the 3
rd
is Makara-anticlkwise to its lord; the 7
th

is Vrishaba-clkwise to its lord; the 11
th
is Kanya-anticlkwise to its lord; the 4
th
is
241
Kumbha-anticlkwise to its lord; the 8
th
is Mithunia-clkwise to its lord; the 12
th
is
Tula-clkwise to its lord. Hence the sequence {1,5,9,2,6,10,3,7,11,4,8,12} is satisfied.

If the 1
st
dasa belongs to a sign of the samapada group, the subsequent dasas will be those of
the signs 1, 9, 5, 12, 8, 4, 11, 7, 3, 10, 6 and 2 from it.
Example:
The strongest trinal sign from the Lagna ( 1
st
, 5
th
and 9
th
) is the 1
st
at 27 SAV+2-planets, the sequence is
clockwise starting from Mesha. The sequence of signs is: Mesha, 5, 9, 2, 6, 10, 3, 7, 11, 4, 8, and 12 from
it in this order. Mesha, Simha , Dhanush, Vrishabha, Kanya , Makara, Mithunia, Tula, Kumbha, Karka,
Vrischika, Meena.
1-from Mesha to its lord Kuja in Mesha is Lagna-clkwise to Kuja= (15:03)/30=0.5016 years
5-from Simha to its lord who is Ravi in Makara-anti-clockwise, the distance is :
[7*30+30-14:02 (Sun)]/30 = 7.5322 years
9- from Dhanush to its lord Guru-clkwise, the distance is:
[5*30+18:28 (Ju)]/30 = 5.6155 years
2-from Vrishabha to its lord Sukra-clkwise, the distance is:
[8*30+23:50 (Ve)]/30 = 8.7944
6-from Kanya to its lord Budha-anticlkwise, the distance is:
[7*30+30-02:15 (Me)]/30 = 7.925 years
10-from Makara to its lord Shani-anticlkwise, the distance is:
[9*30 + 30-28:36 (Sa)]/30 = 9.0466 years
3-from Mithunia to its lord Budha-clkwise, the distance is:
[8*30+02:15 (Me)]/30 = 8.075 years
7-from Tula to its lord Sukra-clkwise, the distance is:
[3*30+ 23:50 (Ve)]/30 = 3.7944 years
11-from Kumbha to its lord Shani-anticlkwise, the distance is:
[10*30+ 30-28:36 (Sa)]/30= 10.0466 years
4-from Karka to its lord Chandra-anticlkwise, the distance is:
[2*30+30-20:42 (Mo)]/30 = 2.31 years
8-from Vrischika to its lord Kuja-clkwise, the distance is:
[5*30+ 15:03 (Ma)]/30 = 5.5016 years
12- from Meena to its lord Guru – anticlkwise, the distance is :
[10*30+30-18:28 (Ju)]/30 = 10.3844 years
Total = 79.5273 years - Indications are that Sthira Dasa is more accurate.

The karanas should always be taken into consideration either for an in-depth study of the nature of the native or
for fixing up a Muhurta.
e.g. The distance between the Su and the Mo is divided by 6 then +1 to find the Karana position in the table. The first
seven karanas are beneficial , while the next four are not good.

Thithis and Effects
Thithi can be found from any horoscope if we know the positions of Sun and Moon in the natal chart. Find out the
longitudes (degree) of the Sun and the Moon. Each Thithi constitutes 12 degrees. Therefore, divide the difference in
longitudes between the Sun and Moon by 12. You will get the number of the lunar day.

Time and Place of Death (From Varahamihira –Brihat Jatak)
Sutra 25.12
The time of death is to be known from the number of navamsha yet to rise after birth. If the lord of the
lagna aspects it, the time must be doubled. If it is aspected by benefics, the time must be trepled.
Notes: the navamsha lagna has an owner. Find the place occupied by him. This sign
gets modified by the aspects on it, association of planets with it, and the Moon.
The places indicated by the signs are:

Mesha Vrischabha Mithuna Karka Simha Kanya Tula Vrischika Dhanush Makara Kumbha Meena
Goats
or
farm
Grazing
lawn
House Watery
place
Wilder
ness
Well
or
water
Store or
shop
Low
places
Farm Marshy
places
House swamp

The following factors are considered to find the place of death:
v. the nature of the sign occupied by the lord of the navamsha rising.
vi. The nature of the navamsha sign occupied by the lord of the navamsha.
vii. Planets in the sign occupied by the lord of the navamsha.
viii. Planets aspecting the sign occupied by the lord of the navamsha lagna.
The following factors are considered for the time of death:
v. take the total time of the navamsas (3 20) yet to rise = time of death.
vi. If the lagna is aspected by the owner this time must be doubled.
vii. If a benefic is in lagna or aqspects navamsa lagna this time must be trepled.
viii. If lagna is aspected by its lord and if it also has a benefic, the time must be multipled by six.



Day signs which
are strong :
Simha Kanya Tula Vrishchika Kumbha Meena
Night signs: Mesha Vrischabha Mithuna Karka Dhanush Makara

The lagna referred to may be the navamsa lagna. The time given is the time when the native will be
unconscious before death.


E Example chart - place and time of death is :
Place: Navamsa lagna is Mesha owned by Kuja; Kuja is
in Simha. By above table Simha is a Wilderness.
Time : degrees remaining in lagna are : 30 –2:56=27:04;
navamsa’s yet to rise =27.06/3.33=8.12; Ketu is in Lagna,
the time must be trebeled. 8.12*3= 24.36 The navamsa
lagna falls in Mesha a night sign.
Every 30 degrees of longitude is 2 hours which is 0.2222
hr per navamsa. The total time is 24.36*0.2222=5.4132 hrs
or The native dies : 05:24 hrs at night in a Wilderness.
Note: this is the Brahma Muhurta time.






248
Sutra 25.14
Guru, Chandra and Sukra; Ravi and Kuja; and Shani and Budha; bring persons respectively from
Devaloka, Pitriloka, Tiryogloka and Narakaloka. As per the drekkana occupied by the most
powerful between the Sun and the Moon we have to find the high, middle or low status of the
native in his previous birth.
Notes: find the stronger between the Sun and the Moon in D-1. Note the drekkana. The
owner of that drekkana reveals the worlds from which the native has come.
Devaloka belongs to the world of the Gods. Tiryogloka belongs to the world of the animals, Pitru
to the Manes and Naraka to Hell.


* The following is from the author of this e-book :
Varahamihira proclaims the Varnas with the above planets.
Maharishi Parasara too uses a similar classification.
Maharishi Jamini son of Vedavyasa and his desciple uses a
classification that takes into account the gunas of the
Siddhas who have been given the suzernity of their planet
by Brahman. Thus Guru (Brihaspati) , Chandra (waxing),
Sukra and Budha all have sattvik natures which classify
them as Brahmin. Kuja and Ravi have rajasik natures which
classify them as Kshatriya. Sani has a tamasik nature
which classifies him as Sudra. However whenever Sani is
aspected by Budha his nature is between rajasik and tamas
a mixture of the two and is Vaisya. Thus all the Varnas are
a Dharmic reflection of their natures or gunas. Thus Sutra
25.14 taking this change into account could accurately reveal ones past world that one came from
before rebirth on earth.



Sutra 25.14 (reclassified)
Guru, Chandra (waxing), Sukra, and Budha; Ravi and Kuja; Shani-Benefic and Shani-Malefic,
bring persons respectively from Devaloka, Pitriloka, Tiryogloka, Narakaloka . As per the drekkana
occupied by the most powerful between the Sun and the Moon we have to find the highest, high,
middle or low status of the native in his previous birth.
Example chart . The arudha lagna of the rasi chart is ruled by lord Shani. The native was a
Sudra in his previous life. From the strength of planets the Moon = 5 BAV and the Sun= 6
BAV. The Sun is in the stronger sign, also 29 SAV ( Mo, 22 SAV). Surya is the stronger.
Surya 14:02 Cap is in the 2
nd
Drekkana. The 5
th
house lord from him is the lord of that
Drekkana = Venus. From above caste of planets, the native came from Devaloka, the
world of the gods.

Sutra 25.15
The lord of the drekkana of the 6
th
or the 8
th
house or the planets in the 6
th
, 7
th
or 8
th
house indicates the
natives existence after death.
Notes: If there are no planets in 6, 7, or 8 find the lords of the rising drekkanas in 6 and 8.
Find the stronger of these and note the world referred to that lord. If there are planets in 6, 7
or 8, find the strongest.
Example chart : Me 2:16 is lord of the 6
th
who has a strength of 6 BAV. Lord of the 8
th
is Ma
15:03 who has a strength of 5 BAV. The stronger Me is in Shani in Kumbha and the 1
st
drekkana
249
(02:16) is ruled by Shani. The native will go to Narakaloka to the City of Justice after
death if papa is greater than punya and there is absence of the wisdom of the Self.


5112 Method on Finding Age on Death:-
Sutras-
(i) If all the Trik house lords {6, 8, 12} and the 22
nd
-Drekkana lord are in the rasi or Janma
Lagna and at least one of the transiting planets : Saturn, Jupiter, Sun or Moon are there then
this 1
st
Muhurta chart is the time when bodily debilitation starts.
(ii) If all of the above lords cannot form a conjunction in rasi lagna then place as many of these
transiting parameters as possible in lagna and place the balance in powerful aspecting
positions.
o Then this 1
st
Muhurta chart is the time of life when debilitation of body starts.
o If after the 1
st
Muhurtha is taken, the astrologer finds Jupiter already in Revati (sign of
Pisces) then that is the time of death. Jupiter already in Revati is found in the charts of
meritorious souls.
(iii) If Jupiter is not in Revati, place Saturn in the star Bharani in 13:20 degrees Mesha (Aries).
Saturn is rotated clockwise to this position in the Muhurtha chart if his position is
greater than 13:40 Leo (end of Magha). If Saturn is located less than this rotate Saturn
anticlockwise to the nakshatra Bharani. i.e., if Saturn is behind Simha in houses 9 to 12
- rotate anticlockwise. If Saturn is in front in houses 1 to 8 and greater than 13:40
Magha in Simha , rotate clockwise.
o This is the 2
nd
Muhurtha time.
o If after the 2
nd
Muhurtha is taken, the astrologer finds Jupiter has moved to Revati - the
star in the sign of Pisces, then that is the time of death. Jupiter in Revati in 2
nd

Muhurtha is found in the charts of meritorious souls.
o If Jupiter is not in Revati; after the 2
nd
Muhurtha, move Jupiter clockwise or
anticlockwise - depending on the stage of life taken from the chart above - to the first
trine position to the Divine Mother in Revati.
⇒ Jupiter is moved clockwise if age is in 1
st
or 2
nd
stage to the first trine
position ( 5, 9 ) - 16:40 Sign to Revati in Pisces.
⇒ Jupiter is moved retrograde (in exultation) anti-clockwise if age in 3
rd
stage
of life -over 66.7 years- to the first trine position 16:40 Sign to Revati in
Pisces.
o This is the 3
rd
Muhurtha time and the time of death.

Bharani is said to be the Nakshatra where Yama guides the soul to the astral plane , where it can
experience the result of its karma and vasanas from the samskaras and prepare for the next life.
This is Yama’s first visit. This is the time when one asks Yama to extend life further or complete it
soon. Bharani starts in 13:20 Aries. This is the 1
st
Muhurta or time.
Magha is ruled by the ancestors. Magha Nakshatra causes a change of state or condition, a kind of
death. Usually it shows that we are coming to the end of a cycle. This nakshatra is a marker on the
movement of Saturn either to extend or to retract, the years of one’s life cycle. Magha ends in the
sign of 13:40 Leo.
Revati is the great womb of the Divine Mother, revealing the end as well as new beginnings. This
is the 2
nd
Muhurtha given in life charts.The primary motivation of this asterism is moksha. It is
also associated with deep faith and devotion to Brahman. Meritorious souls end their life cycle in
this star. Pushan the protector of kine is invoked in the Vedas for safe travel and protects the soul
in its travel to the world of the Deva’s. Pushan the deity of Revati guides the soul to the third
world. Revati starts in 16:40 Pisces.
250
Finally the 3
rd
Muhurtha date of punya chakra or passing away time is Guru or Jupiter in trine
to the Divine Mother in Revati. After the body is destroyed by the loss of Prana- the vital force,
the soul with its attributes (Avaranas) is to transmigrate away from the dissoluted material body,
pass in auspicious proximity to the Tara Revati- the womb of the Divine Mother of the Universe
and journey either in the northerly (uttarayana) or southerly (dakshinayana) direction, in its astral
body of light, to the region of its merit. Some will pass through Surya to Satyaloka others to the 3
rd

plane of Chandraloka . Lord Krishna explains this process in the Bhagavad Gita (chapt 8, verse
22-26) and Muni Vayasa in the Brahma Sutras.

E Death, Past and Future Births - from Phala Deepika by Matreswara
Chapter 14 verses 22-29

22. if the lord of 12
th
house be posited in his sign of exaltation, a friendly sign or a varga of a
benefic planet, the native after his death goes upward to heaven. If he is depositied in his sign of
debilitation, in an inimical sign or in the varga of a malefic planet, he after death goes to hell.
Some interpret this as a result of the nature of the sign (of the 12
th
house) i.e. heaven if the sign is a
shirshodaya one and hell if it be a prishtodaya one.
Notes: Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Aquarius = Shirshodaya signs.
Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Sagittarius, and Capricorn = Prishtodaya signs.
Pisces =Ubhayodaya sign.
Example 22: the 12
th
is Pisces a Ubhayodaya sign. He can go either way to Nirvana or
Narakaloka.

30. the refuge after death is indicated by:
(3) the planet or planets deposited in the 12
th
house.
(4) The planet occupying the Navamsa of the 12
th
house, or the planet or planets with which the
lord of the 12
th
be connected.
If: (i) the Sun or Moon be such a planet the abode of the soul after death will be Kailash.

Example 23: The lord of the 12
th
sign is Guru, he is conjunct with benefic Chandra. He will
go to Kailash of lord Shiva.

(ii) Mars be the planet concerned, the native will take birth on the Earth immediately after
death.
(iii) Mercury be the planet in question, the next world for the native will be Vaikuntha.
(iv) Jupiter takes the native’s soul to Brahmaloka.
(v) Saturn takes the soul to the abode of Yama.
(vi) Rahu to other islands and Ketu to hell.

31. it is from the lord of the 9
th
that all is ascertained about the native’s past birth and all information
about
252
his future birth is signified by the lord of the 5
th
house. The particular caste, country and the
direction of the person concerned in his past and future births should be deduced from the lords of
the 9t
h
and the 5
th
houses respectively.

Example 24: the lord of the 9
th
is Guru, this is the divine house of Bhagya. He was a Brahmin
in his previous life and lived outside of India. The 5
th
house lord is Surya. He will act as a
Kshatriya for occupation.

32. if the planets referred to above be in their sign of exaltation, the abode should be declared as that
of
Gods (Devaloka). If they be in their sign of debilitation or in an inimical sign, the abodes of past
and future births should be declared to be foreign countries. If the above planets be in their own
sign or a neutral's sign, such place would be India alone.

Example 25: Guru in past life is in an inimical sign Vrishabha; Surya in future birth is in an
inimical sign Makara. He will live outside of his birth country, and live in South Africa.

33. the parts of India covered by the various planets are as under:-
(8) Sun- mountains and forests
(9) Moon- tracts watered by the holy rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, Narada Godavari etc.
(10) Mars- Bihar
(11) Mercury- all sacred places.
(12) Jupiter- Aryavarta bordered in the North by Himalayas, in the south by Vindhya, and
which extends to oceans in the East and the West.
(13) Venus- same as the Moon’s places.
(14) Saturn- prohibited places like those inhabited by Mlechchas (non-Hindus).
34. (i) if the planets referred to in verse 24 (lords of the 9
th
and the 5
th
), are posited in a fixed sign or
Navamsa which is Prishtodaya and Adhomukha along with malefics, the past and future births
of the native should be taken as trees, plants and the like.

Exahmple 27: Guru is in Taurus a fixed sign, and Pristodaya and with a benefic; Surya is in
a chara (moveable sign) Makara and a Prishtodaya sign with a malefic Sukra. The future
birth is in a human body.

(ii) If the lord of the 9
th
and the 5
th
houses occupy a Shirshodaya and an Urdhvamukha sign or a
movable sign or navamsa, and be associated with benefics, the past and future births will be of an
animal kind.

35. (i) if the lord of the 9
th
or the 5
th
be in a sign of exaltation or own sign to the lord of Lagna [i.e the
9
th
or the 5
th
lords is a depositor in the lord of Lagna’s exultation or own sign], it would mean
that the native’s previous birth (9
th
) or the future birth (5
th
) birth will be that of a human being

Example 28 (i): The lord of Lagna is Ma whose exultation sign is Makara occupied by Surya
the lord of the 5
th
. This satisfies sutra 28 and the native is confirmed to be a human being in
future birth.

(ii) If the lord of the 9
th
occupied a sign neutral to the lord of the Lagna, the native in the past birth
was born as an animal.

253
Example 28 (ii): the lord of Lagna Ma is neutral to Sukra the lord of Vrishabha to which
sign the lord of the 9
th
Guru is deposited. The native in his past birth was an animal.

(iii) If the lord of the 5
th
be in a sign neutral to the lord of the Lagna, the native in his future birth
will be born as an animal.
(iv) If the lord of the 9
th
occupies the sign of debilitation of the lord of the Lagna or in an inimical
sign, the native was born as a bird in his previous life.
(v) If the lord of the 5
th
be in such a situation, the native will be born as a bird in his next birth.

36. (i) if the lords of the 9
th
and the 5
th
be in the same sign, the past birth was in his own country and
the future birth will also take place there.
(ii) If these two planets be of equal strength, the past and future birth would be of the same caste.
(iii) The colour and quality will also be similar to these belonging to the lords of the 9
th
and the 5
th

houses.

E Example-chart -verses 22-28: Summary

Example 22: the 12
th
is Pisces a Ubhayodaya sign. He can
go either way to Nirvana or Narakaloka.
Example 23: The lord of the 12
th
sign is Guru, he is conjunct
with benefic Chandra. He will go to Kailash of lord Shiva.
Example 24: the lord of the 9
th
is Guru, this is the divine house
of Bhagya. He was a Brahmin in his previous life and lived
outside of India. The 5
th
house lord is Surya. He will act as a
Kshatriya for occupation in the future.
Example 25: Guru in past life is in an inimical sign Vrishabha;
Surya in future birth is in an inimical sign Makara. He will live
outside of his birth country, namely South Africa.
Example 28 (i): The lord of Lagna is Ma whose exultation sign
is Makara occupied by Surya the lord of the 5
th
. This satisfies
sutra 28 and the native is confirmed to be a human being in
future birth.
Example 28 (ii): the lord of Lagna Ma is neutral to Sukra the lord of Vrishabha to which sign the
lord of the 9
th
Guru is deposited. The native in his past birth was an animal but benefic as he was a
Brahmin.

Yogas Leading to Asceticism-Chapter 27- Phala Deepika
1. When the lord of the 10th house in association with four planets be posited in a Kendra or trikona,
the native attains emancipation.
2. If at the time of birth four or more planets are posited in a single house, he will become an ascetic
of the order indicated by the strongest among the planets.
Some of the learned are of the opinion that if the lord of the 10
th
house be one amongst those
planets, the person will take to the order of ascetics signified by the lord of the 10
th
house.

Notes: according to Brihat Jataka if at birth four or more planets possessed of strength
occupy a single house, the person born will become (and according to the definitions
given in Jataka Parijata) an ascetic from the position of :-Mars, Mercury, Jupiter,
Moon, Venus, Saturn or the Sun respectively:
(i) Sakya - an ill behaved ascetic of the Buddhist class.
(ii) Jeevika - a garrulous and gluttonous mendicant.
254
(iii) Bhikshu - is an illustrious ascetic with a single staff for his symbol engaged ever and
anon in the contemplation of the truths of the sacred scriptures.
(iv) Guru or Vriddha – a celebrated teacher endowed with royal splendour.
(v) Charakha – a religious mendicant wandering over many countries.
(vi) Vivasa – a naked ascetic dwelling in hills and forests.
(vii) Vanaprastha - a religious man engaged in the practice of rigourous and devout penance.
3. if the Moon be posited in the Decanate of Saturn and be aspected by Saturn and Mars, the native
will turn into an ascetic. If the Moon be in the Navamsa of Mars and be receiving the Aspect of
Saturn the person will take to the order of asceticism signified by Mars [ a Sakya].
4. If the lord of the sign occupied by the Moon at birth be aspected only by Saturn, the native will
become an ascetic of the particular class indicated by the Janmadeepa :
Sun – will make the native a chief or lord amongst contemplative saints or one who has taken to
asceticism.
Moon – will make the native an ascetic who is traveling to various places of pilgrimage.
Mars- will cause the native to become an ascetic of the Buddhist order and an expert in base
spells.
Mercury – will enable the native to become a mendicant with no knowledge of the various
schools of philosophy.
Jupiter – will cause the native to become an ascetic of high class possessing knowledge of
Vedanta philosophy.
Venus – will cause to make an ascetic who is a hypocrite, outcaste and public dancer.
Saturn – will produce an ascetic who is an outcaste or a heretic.

Example: The lord of the sign of the Moon is Venus in Makara. Venus is aspected not only by
Saturn but also by Jupiter. Since that excludes Saturn from the Yoga as he is not exclusive,
Jupiters yoga is left: Jupiter – will cause the native to become an ascetic of high class
possessing knowledge of Vedanta philosophy.


5. the Moon is very strong in Shukla Paksha or bright half of the month. But if the Moon be weak
(waning) and be aspected by the lord of the Lagna, the native will become a miserable, distressed
and wretched ascetic devoid of wealth and company and one who will get his meals with
difficulty. If however, in the above Yoga, there may exist a Raja Yoga , all the bad effects will be
removed and the native will become a lord of the earth initiated into asceticism and inclined
virtuously, receiving respect and reverence from other Kings.
7. if four planets including the lord of the 10
th
be posited in a Kendra or trikona or three planets be
quartered in an auspicious house, the native will seal admission to the holy order and will become
a successful ascetic.If there be more benefic in amongst the planets mentioned above occupying
auspicious houses, the holy order will be one revered by the great. If it be not so, the holy order
will not command reverence.

Span of life Under Varahamihira’s Method in Brihat Jatak

Sloka 7.1.0
Ancient masters like Maya, Yavanacharya, Manithacharya, Shakti, Parasara etc have laid down
as under the maximum number of years for the maximum exalted strength of the various
planets as the years of longevity contributed by them in a birth chart :

Sloka 7.1.1 when a planet is in its maximum degree of exultation its span to a natives life is in table 1.

Longevity in Birth Chart from Exalted Planets in Maximum Degree of Longevity=Table 1
Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn
19 25 15 12 15 21 20

Sloka 7.2.0 When a planet is in its maximum degree of debilitation its span to a natives life: in table 2.

Longevity in Birth Chart from Debilitated Planets= Table 2
Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn
9.5 12.5 7.5 6 7.5 10.5 10

Sloka 7.2.1 But when a planet is between exultation and debilitation than in the intermediate position a
planet contributes its span of life to a native proportionally.

Sloka 7.2.2 In this scheme of determining span of life the ascendant also contributes life years. A
navamsa (3:20-degrees) of ascendant elapsed is equal to 1-year of life contributed, fraction of a
navamsa giving the months etc. proportionally.

* Planets in Sign of an Enemy :
take 1/3 off the years given in above tables except when exalted or in retrogression, then
the full years of longevity remain.
* Planets in Combustion :
Take ½ off the years given in the above tables except when Venus or Saturn are combust,
then the full years of longevity remain for these two planets.
* Planets in Special Houses :

* Satyacharya’s View:
In case any one of these six houses is occupied by two or more planets, whether malefics or
benefics or mixed ones, only one of them who is the strongest will lose as a malefic or a
benefic. For example a weak Moon and a weak Mercury conjoined to a malefic is normally
considered as a malefic, but in this context these two planets would be treated as natural
benefics and would lose as benefics if placed in the stipulated houses.

Years of Loss for Lagna with a Malefic Planet
Sutra 7.4.0
Find the number of navamshas in the lagna (divide the numerical longitude of the Ascendant by
3.3333) .Multiply the result by number of proportional years (base years) contributed by a natural
malefic in lagna and divide it by 108 (the total no. of navamsas in the 12 signs). The result would
be the number of years lost by the natural malefic located in the lagna.

Formula: As_loss= (L/3.3333)*(B_malefic planet/108)

Where L= numeric longitude of planet; B=base years of malefic planet

Example chart below: Years loss in As=02:56; 2.9333/3.3333=0.8800;
0.8800*11.7895(Mars)/108=0.0960 years lost

If the natural malefic planet is aspected by a benefic it will lose only ½ of the calculated loss in
years.
Note: in case there are 2 or more than 2 natural malefic planets in the lagna, the process of
calculation of the loss should be undertaken only in respect of a single malefic planet that is
nearest to the longitude of the lagna.

× Notes: The following formulas can be used to find the base years for each planet in a birth chart.
The rotation is clockwise or anticlockwise determined by the rotation from the sign of exultation to
the planet to its debilitation sign.

Moon (20:42): 20.7000 degrees; In sign of exultation : Ex. 3 Vrischika – Deb. 3 Vrishabha = 180 deg.
B= 25- [ (20.7-3)/180]*12.5=23.7708

Mars (15:03): 15.05 degrees;clockwise : Ex. 28 Makara – Deb. 28 Karka = 180 degrees;
B=15- [ (30-28 + 2*30+15.05)/180 ] * 7.5 = 11.7895

Mercury (02:15): 2.25 degrees; clockwise: Ex. 15 Kanya – Deb. 15 Meena=180 degrees;
B= 12- [ (30-15+4*30+2.25)/180 ]*6 = 7.4250

Jupiter (18 28): 18.46 degrees; anticlockwise: Ex. 5 Karka – Deb. 5 Makara= 180 degrees;
B= 15 – [ (5+1*30+30-18.46)/180 ]*7.5 = 13.0608
Venus (23:50) ; 23.83 degrees; anticlockwise: Ex 27 Meena – Deb 27 Kanya= 180 degrees;
B= 21 – [ (27+ 1*30+30-23.83)/180 ]*10.5 = 17.3150
Saturn (28:36):28.60 ;anticlockwise : 20 Tula-20 Mesha = 180 degrees;
B= 20 – [ (20 + 5*30 +30-28.60)/180}*10 = 10.4700
B=base years of age

Y= years at exultation

X= degrees of exultation

From Mantreswaras Pala Deepika:

In the Horasara-by Prithuyasas (son of Varahamihira) from Phala Deepika:
24.1,2,3 - The 9
th
sign reckoned from the sign occupied by the Sun is called house of the father.
Multiply the benefic bindus in that house by the figure denoting the Sodhyapinda. The figure

so
arrived at should be divided by 27 [take the remainder and count that number from Ashwini]. When
Saturn passes through the nakshatra represented by that figure, in course of his transit, something bad
will happen to the father. Death will occur when Saturn passes through the nakshatra in trine to this
nakshatra.An example follows:

Longevity of the Father


Sutra 24.1,2,3:
Using the natal
chart. The house of
the father is the 9
th

house Taurus from
the Sun in Kanya.
The benefic bindus
in the 9
th
house
Taurus are: 26.
Multiply it by the
sodhya pinda of the
Sun; 26*180=4680.
Divide by 27:
4680/27=173.3333;
R=27*0.3333=9,
the nakshatra is :
Ashlesha (9
th
from Ashwini). Saturn passing through this nakshatra will bring a bad result to the
father. Death occurs when Saturn transits the trines {1, 5, 9 } i.e; Ashlesha, Hasta, and Anaradha.
