DIRECTIONS OF CHARA DASH
Following this information we are now able to divide the zodiacal signs into the following four quadrants of Savya (forward) and Apasavya (backward) counting: 1) Savya forward counting: Aries, Taurus and Gemini 2) Apasavya backward (REVERSE) counting: Cancer, Leo and Virgo 3) Savya forward counting: Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius 4) Apasavya backward (REVERSE) counting: Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces

THE PATTERN OF CHARA DASHA PATTERN:

For determining the length of Mahadasha, there is concept of counting in forward and backward order for particular sign. Once we determine the starting Chara Dasha of a Rashi, the duration is that Rashi dasha is assessed by counting in forward (if the sign of SAVYA) or backward ( if the sign is APAVASAVYA) as follows: LAGNA DURATION OF DASHA SAVYA Aries Count Forward to Mars' location, then subtract 1 SAVYA Taurus Forward to Venus' location, then subtract 1 SAVYA Gemini Count forward to Mercury's location, then subtract 1 APASAVYA Cancer Count backward to the Moon's location, then subtract 1 APASAVYA Leo Count backward to the Sun's location, then subtract 1 APASAVYA Virgo Count backward to Mercury's position, then subtract 1 SAVYA Libra Count forward to Venus' location, then subtract 1 SAVYA Count forward to Mars' (or Ketu's) position, then subtract 1 Scorpio Sagittarius SAVYA Count forward to Jupiter's position, then subtract 1 APASAVYA Capricorn Count backward to Saturn's position, then subtract 1 APASAVYA Aquarius Count backward to Saturn's (or Rahu's) position, then subtract 1* APASAVYA Pisces Count backward to Jupiter's position, then subtract 1 Counting the Dasha period: If a planet is in its own sign, it is assigned twelve years.
In Jaimini system Aquarius and Scorpio have two lords. - Aquarius: - Saturn and Rahu - Scorpio : - Mars and Ketu To solve this issue - whether to take Saturn or Rahu for lordship of Aquarius. Sage Jaimini discuss all the possible answer to find the actual lord. Different possibilities are: a) When both conjunct in the same sign. Subtract 1 from the distance; it will give you the period of that particular sign. b) If one placed in own sign and other in different then opt the second option. (If Mars is in

Scorpio, and Ketu is not, then, Ketu is selected. If Ketu is in Scorpio and Mars is not, then Mars is picked)- Dasha period is dependent on position of lord from its sign. Now if the sign is
savya then count the distance between the sign and its lord, in case of upsavya rashi count the distance but in reverse direction. c) If both are in different sign then choose the lord having more companion. d) If both are having same numbers of planets with themselves then choose the lord placed in dual sign. (Dual Sign - Fixed Sign - Movable Sign) e)Despite this, if still there is a problem of selecting among them, the planet at higher degree is the winner.

e) A similar method is to be used for Saturn and Rahu in the case of Aquarius.

Chara Dasha calculation for the above horoscope:

1. As the 9th house from Leo is Aries, it is a Savya rasi, hence counting is direct- in the clockwise direction from Leo:
Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer.

2. As the dasha is of Savya rashi, the sub period will be the second house from Leo, i.e., Virgo with the last sub period ending up with the Ascendant, i.e. Leo. 3. Rashi Dashas: For Savya rashis – count forward
Rasi from Asc. Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius Nature apasavya apasavya savya savya savya apasavya apasavya

For Apasavya rashis count backwards or reverse.
Dasha in years 12 2 – 1= 1 11- 1 =10 3 –1 = 2 9–1=8 8–1=7 9–1=8 From 20.8.1944 to 20.8.1956 to 20.8.1957 20.8.1967 20.8.1969 20.8.1977 20.8.1984 to to to to to To 20.8.1956 20. 8. 1957 20.8.1967 20.8.1969 20.8.1977 20.8.1984 20.8.1992

Rasi lord placed in Sun – in ascendant (own sign) Count backward from Virgo to Mercury Count forward to Venus Count forward to Ketu Count forward to Jupiter Count backwards to Saturn Count back to Saturn

4. Periods of sub- period –antar dashas: Rashi Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius Dasha period for rasi 12 years 1 year 10 years 2 years 8 years 7 years 8 years Sub dasha (antar) for each rasi 12 months for each rasi 1 month for each rasi 10 months for each rasi 2 months for each rasi 8 months for each rasi 7 months for each rasi 8 months for each rasi
