10th lord in Kendras or Konas gives Raja Yoga, which could mean a decent employment/occupation. However, quite often we come across many natives with ordinary credentials but their charts contain such combinations. On the contrary there are people immersed in affluence but their charts do not directly reveal any prominent Yogas. To explain his paradox, astrologers are forced to define bhavas (or houses) in different ways and use only those bhavas, which offer proper explanation. In a rasi when two planets are together in a particular Nakshatra and also in the same navamsa, the so-called Yuti or conjunction has the full impact to give the expected result fully. Even when they are in different navamsas but in the same Nakshatra, the Yuti is considered quite good and effective. On the other hand if they are in the same rasi but placed in different Nakshatras, they behave as if they are as far away from each other as possible and the socalled Yuti does not exist. An in depth perception is required to understand what constitutes a Yuti. For example, BU in Punarvasu Nakshatra in Mithuna rasi and GU in Aslesha Nakshatra in Karkataka rasi: these are neither in the same Nakshatra nor rasi. But their link is so strong due to the exchange of their Nakshatras that they are AS GOOD AS TOGETHER in YUTI. Further, if BU happens to be in the fourth quarter of Punarvasu Nakshatra, which falls in Karkataka rasi, then as GU is already in Aslesha in the same rasi, it is wrong to assume that they ARE NOT CONJUNCT. On the contrary they are treated as conjunct by virtue of the exchange of their Nakshatras. Rahu and ketu fully represent the lords of the rasis in which they are placed. Other planets also do so but not to the same extent as Rahu and Ketu. If RH or KE is placed in Mesha or Vrischika rasi, then it represents KU as the lord of Measha and Vrischika and both the bhavas associated with these rasis. If RH or KE is placed in Mesha rasi and say GU is in Vrischika rasi, then RH/KE is capable of acting as a representative of GU also. However, if RH/KE and GU are together in the same rasi, then RH/KE would not be able to work for GU unless they are present in the same Nakshatra. The Yuti of RH and GU in a rasi is considered as Guru-Chandala Yoga. This Yoga manifests only when both of them are in same Nakshatra. Or even when they are not together in same Nakshatra, if RH is in GU Nakshatra and GU in Rahu’s, thus Guru-Chandala Yoga gets manifested. If RH and GU exchange their Nakshatras, this yoga operates to 100% potential. Whenever planets are placed very close to RA in a rasi depending on the planet if it with in a specified distance from RA, it is said to become combust and loses its potential. For instance if CH is with in 12, KU with in 17, GU within 11, SA within 15, BU with in 14, BU(R) within 12, SU within 10and SU(R) within 8of RA are said to become combust. But in practice, this observation is rarely found to be valid and hence can be safely ignored. TRANSITS Astrologers have a tendency to resort to transits of planets to find out when a native will get married or when will he promoted in the profession etc. Can a transit tell whether there is Raja Yoga or Daridra Yoga? Or a marriage Yoga or not? The answer is an emphatic NO. One has to go back to the native’s natal chart to look for these Yogas. If the native’s chart has these Yogas, then it will also tell when they will fructify. There is no need to depend on the transits of planets for timing of the fulfillment of Yogas present in the natal chart. It should be clearly understood that the birth chart itself is the indicator of transits of all the planets at the time of birth, which decide the fate of the native. Today’s transits decide the events of today and NOT the events envisaged in the birth chart. The timing of events can be computed from the dasha period sequence that the native will have in his life. However, transits have their intrinsic value and usefulness in horary or Prasna. In all other case they have no relevance. NAKSHATRAS (CONSTELLATIONS OR ASTERISMS) AND THEIR SIGNIFICATIONS As has been mentioned earlier, the zodiac of 27 Nakshatras corresponding to 360can be divided into 3 portions of 120each. Each 120arc is made up of 9 Nakshatras each Nakshatra occupying 13:20of arc. Each Nakshatra has a planet as its lord. As there are 9 planets and 27 Nakshatras, each planet owns three Nakshatras. These are given in a Tabular form for easy reference. For a native born with his lagna bhava in Aswini Nakshatra, KE, the Nakshatra lord will have a much higher influence on his life than the lagna rasi lord KU. The Martian influence is
the dasha periods of BU would give the Raja Yoga along with those of KU and SU. 9th lord in a Nakshatra of 10th or vice versa constitutes 50% of the Yoga. then the organs of the body represented by KU would undergo some damage and the bhavas represented by KU also suffer like wise. The planet linking the lagna lord and the 7th lord or the lagna bhava and the 7th bhava would be able to give marriages in its dasha periods. This is the real Kalasarpa Yoga rather then the one traditionally defined. If KE is placed in 9th bhava in Dhanu rasi. A similar role is played by any linking planet. which would also give monetary benefits. For a Simha lagna native with 9th lord KU in 8th house in Revathi Nakshatra belonging to BU (lord of 2nd and 11th bhavas) and 10th lord SU in 12th in Aslesha nakshatra. Similar results are expected when any other planet totally comes under the control of RH and/or KE.Krishnamurthy in his book “Predictive stellar astrology”). then the dasha periods of KU shall be helpful for acquisition of wealth and so on. Vijayalakshmi Yoga (RH-KU). The 7th lord in sucg a position will make KU dasha period fruitful for marriage. In his (GU) periods GU gives the results of the bhavas for which CH is the rasi lord or the Nakshatra lord. where he is placed. Similarly the planets linking 9 th and 12th lords may be relied more for timing foreign trips than the 9th lord in 12th or so on. Dhana Yoga (2nd and 11th lords) and others give more reliable and dependable results when they are found in the navamsa chart. He loses control of the bhavas for which he is the rasi lord or of the bhava. A better understanding of the significations of these Nakshatras would definitely be more useful for appreciating the behaviour of planets when present in different Nakshatras. Nakshatras also play a significant role in delineating different Yogas in the chart of a native. The dasha periods of the planets in whose Nakshatras natural malefics are placed do give some adverse results irrespective of their lordship. The navamsa lord usually goes to the rescue of the planet placed in its navamsa rasi. Gajakesari Yoga (CH-GU). An understanding of the different connections between the planets and the bhavas through the nakshatra route is very important in the assessment of a horoscope. If they have exchanged their Nakshatras it is 100% Yoga to be enjoyed by the natives during the dasha periods of 9th or 10th lords. say GU is placed in Rohini belonging to CH. The so called Yutis such as Budha-Aditya Yoga (RA-BU). It is also one quarter of a nakshatra (13:20/4 = 3:20). It may be noted that this is one-ninth of a rasi (30/9 = 3:20) meaning navamsa. 9th lord in a nakshatra of RH and RH in a nakshatra of 10th lord makes RH a linking planet between 9th and 10th to give Raja Yoga in its dasha periods. The Yuti of 9th and 10th lords or 4th and 5th lords in a navamsa can make the navamsa lord give Raja Yoga in its dasha periods. They are able to do this to a much greater extent as compared to the rasi lords in whose rasis the planets are present.S. Conventionally it is said that when 9th lord and 10th lord are connected Raja Yoga manifests. Just as each rasi and nakshatra have their own lords. irrespective of the bhavas they are placed in. If a planet. NAVAMSAS AND THEIR SIGNIFICANCE Navamsa is an arc of 3:20of the zodiac. The Guru dashas of such a native would be full of the Karakatwas of CH rather than GU. nakshatra and navamsa routes. Visakha or Purvabhadra) the so-called Gajakesari Yoga manifests as envisaged by the sages of yore. Any planet with too many connections loses much of its power to do any job. say in Mesha navamsa. The nakshatra lords are able to make the planets subservient to them and orient their behaviour in a different direction.only secondary. then GU comes under the control of CH and acts as a servant of CH. So the placement of planets in different bhavas is not of much significance as compared to the connections they have through different rasi. If these linking planets are natural malefics then the planet totally fails to give the expected results. the native will acquire the characteristics of the 9th lord GU in abundance. also belonging to BU. (Some literature on this is given by Shri K. When RH is placed in the nakshatra of KU and KU is placed in the nakshatra of RH. The 6th or 10th lords in such a position may enable KU to find a job for the native etc. If CH in the chart is also placed in a GU Nakshatra (Punarvasu. When there is no planet in a particular rasi in the natal c . each navamsa has also its lord. For these two planets to get connected it is not necessary that they should be placed in a rasi or bhava. If the 2nd lord of a birth chart is placed.
