On Annual Solar Progressed Chart by Shivaji Bhattacharjee The Annual Solar Progressed Chart (ASPC) is a very less discussed

subject in almost all astrological research journals. The ASPC is one of the significant tools to pinpoint time of events within a particular time frame as the system r olls up vast time and space within a limit of one year. In Vedanga Jyotisha maxi mum importance has been given to the Sun, the Moon and the Lagna to read events that keep shaping human destiny. The Sun stands for the soul, the never ending s pirit, comprising of Jeevatma and Bhutatma constantly vibrating around one's phy sical existence to keep the earthly vehicle moving right from the entrance to ex ist in this world, the entire gamut of which is outlined in Karma doctrine. The Moon governs the mind containing of two allied entity of conscious and subconscious region that transmit instincts and impulses under the directive of Karma where the Lagna appears as gross physical body, the only media through wh ich Karma manifests through evolving around to promote one's position in the env ironment by establishing personality and relation till the gross body annihilate s. In Vedanga Jyotish, the radix position of the Sun interprets one's soul ev olution and appears as balance sheet of Karma so as it sets up its rapport with the Moon and Lagna as well as its elongated angles with other cosmic bodies in t he heavens which suggest fraying or fresh accumulation of Karma in this current life. The anniversary day is the day on which the Sun coincides that year with t he exact position of the radical Sun of the native. So the specific anniversary day of Solar Annual Return has certain clue to read a life for a certain span of period i.e. for the specific year of which the chart is erected. Similarly, the Moon through its mansions in terms of Dasa etc. delineates the course of one's life flow from the source to the final merger with the eternity. The eternal sou l of any nativity has its cardinal importance with the position of the Sun is th e ASPC that shapes and moulds destiny for the year in question. The Sun takes 1 year one day 6 hours 9 minutes and 12 seconds to return to the given position of the birth horoscope. So by adding the above period on any of its multiple we may get any anniversary day of any nativity and the chart wh en you put to read with the birth horoscope, unfold major events for the concern ed year, facilitate us to unfold the destiny more lucidly and clearly with less ambiguity. Now we append below a ready reckoner for the year constants from one to hu ndred years to erect a chart for any anniversary year. The week days are counted from Sunday. Sunday is 1, Monday 2, Tuesday 3 and in this way, Saturday is 7. W hen multiples of 7 is reached, the quotient should be given up and accept the re mainder to show the week day. Before we explain the clues how to read yearly cha rt, let us erect an annual chart for 88-89 period for a nativity who was born ne ar Calcutta (22N36; 88E23) on Saturday, the 15th September 1934 at 5.28 PM (LMT) (Tables could not be included with the article. Please send request tables by e mail) Fifty four years have elapsed on 15th September 1988 and the native moved on his 55th anniversary. The week day at birth was Saturday and the time was 5.2 8 pm (LMT). This is 7th day (Saturday being the 7th from Sunday) 17 hours 28 min utes (time counted from midnight) which is the chronological day of birth. Since 54th year has elapsed from the year of birth for the epoch year, we may add the period constant for that per table II Now the total comes to 5 days 13 hours 43 minutes (seconds more than ½ minut es). The 55th anniversary falls on Thursday following 15th September 1988 at 13 hours 43 minutes. The annual solar progressed chart is as under: (Ayanamsa-Lahiri) Planetary positions: Lagna 225°26'; Sun 14859; Moon 19428; Mars (R) 34508; Mercury 17533; Jupiter 4217; Venus 10444; Saturn 24226; Rahu 32
