Introduction

nnual solar return charts based on


Sun's return every year to his
exact natal position are popular in
Vedic and Western astrology.
Divisional charts of Tajaka varshaphal
never worked with any consistency for this
author with Lahiri ayanamsa. The
discovery of Pushya-paksha ayanamsa and
refinement of the definitions of some
divisional charts based on an independent
interpretation of Parasara and resulting
experimentation, made divisional charts
work reasonably well with Tithi Pravesha
charts, but not with Tajaka varshaphal
charts.
When this author broke from tradition,
went back to a teaching of Maharshi
Parasara in Vishnu Purana on solar years
and re-defined Tajaka varshaphal chart,

divisional charts of Tajaka varshaphal started showing more consistent patterns. The new
definition will be shared in this article with examples.

Acknowledgment

he basic idea of this research was inspired by a writing of Sri K.N. Rao, albeit in a
different context. In his article Jaimini Chara Dasa My approach 2 in Journal of
Astrology
(please
see
the
internet
link
http://www.journalofastrology.com/article.php?article_id=317), he wrote in 2010 November
that a particular pratyantardasa ended on Aug 17 th as per his calculations and on Aug 18th as
per Jagannatha Hora software. He showed that his calculation explained the event better.
Being also the author of the software in question, this author took a look into the
discrepancy. He noticed that Sri K.N. Rao was using mean tropical solar year (365.242 days),
while the default dasa year definition in the software (which can be changed by the users)
was true sidereal solar year (365.256 days). The gap accumulates every year and can change
dasa dates by a day as one gets older!
This made the author think of Tajaka varshaphal charts. Traditionally, they are based on
sidereal solar year (i.e. Sun returning every year to his natal position in the sidereal zodiac).
This author questioned it and experimented. That is how this research started.

Solar Calendar

solar year is of 365.242 days (tropical) or 365.256 days (sidereal). Tropical solar year
is the time period in which Sun traverses the tropical zodiac once. Sidereal solar
year is the time period in which Sun traverses the sidereal zodiac once.

For casting the varshaphal chart every year, astrologers now-a-days use sidereal solar year, i.e.
they find when Sun returns to his natal sidereal longitude. However, this is inconsistent with
the teachings of Maharshi Parasara to Maitreya in Vishnu Purana chapter 2.8.
Maharshi Pararsara taught Maitreya that a solar year consists of 2 ayanas and that each ayana
consists of 3 ritus (seasons).
This link to seasons clearly points to tropical zodiac. A solar year based on tropical
zodiac (i.e. the time Sun takes to complete exactly one rotation around the tropical
zodiac) is tied to seasons.
For example, when Sun enters tropical Aries, day and night are of equal length and it
is spring. When Sun enters tropical Cancer, day is the longest and it is summer (in
northern hemisphere). When Sun enters tropical Libra, day and night are of equal
length and it is autumn. When Sun enters tropical Capricorn, day is the shortest and
it is winter (in northern hemisphere).
If we take the sidereal zodiac, it is not tied to seasons. When Sun enters sidereal Aries
every year, he will be in the vicinity of particular stars associated with sidereal Aries,
but the season changes over the years!
Not stopping at that, Maharshi Parasara explicitly taught Maitreya that Uttarayana starts
when Sun enters Capricorn and the day length is the smallest then. When Uttarayana ends,
Sun leaves Gemini and enters Cancer and the day is the longest then. That makes it obvious
that Pararsara is referring to tropical signs here!

Sidereal vs Tropical Zodiac

s mentioned above, Maharshi Parasara clearly used tropical zodiac when defining
solar years in Vishnu Purana. When teaching divisional charts in Brihat Parasara
Hora Sastram, he taught how nakshatras are aligned to rasis and how navamsas
map to quarters of naksatras. So he used sidereal zodiac there.

This author's conclusion is that both tropical and sidereal zodiacs are needed:
Sidereal zodiac: Used for all matters related to space, i.e. definition of rasi chart and
divisional charts
Tropical zodiac: Used for all matters related to time, i.e. definition of months, seasons,
ayanas and years.

Tajaka Varshaphal Definition


Tajaka varshaphal chart is cast every year when Sun is exactly at the same tropical longitude
as at birth.

Judgment
A Tajaka varshaphal chart can be judged just like the natal chart, except that it is effective for
just one year. Rasi chart can be used along with all divisional charts. One need not use various
Tajaka methods for judging this chart and can use standard Vedic astrology methods in rasi
and divisional charts.
Rasi Chart vs Divisional Charts: Rasi chart is like a combination of all floormaps of all floors in
a multi-storey building, while divisional charts are like different floors. If the northeast
corner has something in the combined floormap, it may be in any floor. Similarly, if the 5 th
house is strong in rasi chart, it may show childbirth, promotion in job, academic distinction,
successful mantra sadhana etc and we can check the 5th house in D-7, D-10, D-24, D-20 etc
(respectively) for further insights. Indications in rasi chart may be weak, but have to be
strong in the corresponding divisional chart.
The
writeup
Unified
Nakshatra
Dasa
Approach
at
http://www.vedicastrologer.org/articles defines a method of picking the best nakshatra dasa
in a chart. This works well in natal charts and Tithi Pravesha charts, but does not work well
in Tajaka varshaphal charts. This author has not yet found a dasa system that works reliably.

Replicating Calculations
You can download Jagannatha Hora software from http://www.VedicAstrologer.org/jh
and select Pushya-paksha ayanamsa. In addition, you will need to set some divisional chart

calculation options to follow this write-up. Some divisional charts are computed incorrectly
by people now-a-days.
In the main menu of Jagannatha Hora software (version 7.67 or higher), you can select
Preferences, Related to Calculations and Set Calculation Options as recommended by
author, to set divisional chart calculations as used in this write-up.

Comparison
We will see a few examples that contrast:
(a) The old definition (return to natal sidereal longitude), Lahiri ayanamsa & standard
definitions of divisional charts
(b) The new definition (return to natal tropical longitude), Pushya-paksha ayanamsa &
reformed definitions of divisional charts
Example 1: Academic Distinction
Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He stood first in his state in 12th grade exams with a record score in May 1987 and also
got admission to Indian Institute of Technology.
Education is seen from siddhamsa (D-24) chart. Rasi & D-24 charts with the 2 approaches
above are shown below.

In the old rasi chart, the 5th house is not particularly strong, with 4th and 11th lord Mars in it.
But lagna lord aspects 5th and 5th lord is with 9th lord. There are some signs, but not strong. In
the old D-24 chart, the 5th house of distinction and recognition contains nodes. The 5th lord
Mercury aspects the 5th house, but he is debilitated. Lagna lord is weak in an adhisatru rasi.
Overall, the chart does not strongly explain academic distinction.

In the new rasi chart, lagna lord is in 5th with 9th lord and gives a raja yoga. That 5th lord and
yogakaraka Saturn has 79% aspect on 5th house. The 5th house is quite strong. In the new D-24
chart, the lagna lord Jupiter is exalted in the 5th house and that is a clear combination for
academic success, recognition and fame. Lord Moon is also placed in a mitra rasi. A
functional benefic in the 8th house gives sudden results of a beneficial nature.

Example 2: Childbirth
Birthdata: 1970 October 5, 12:32:20 pm (IST), 80e21, 15n49
Event: He had a child in 2000 September.
Saptamsa (D-7) chart shows progeny. Rasi & D-7 charts using the 2 approaches are shown
below.

In the old rasi chart, lagna lord is in 5th house, aspected by Jupiter. Though 5th lord is in an
inimical sign and not particularly strong, this can indicate childbirth. In the old D-7 chart,
lagna lord Sun is in marana karaka sthana in the 12 th house. The 5th lord of children, Jupiter,
is retrograde in an inimical sign and 5 th house does not have any strong associations. Overall,
there are no clear indications of childbirth in the year.

In the new rasi chart, lagna lord Saturn is in 5th house (longitude-wise). Though debilitated,
he is retrograde and gets neecha bhanga. The 5th lord Venus is closely conjoined with 7th lord
Moon (within 7) and gives raja yoga. Overall, 5th house is strong enough. In the new D-7
chart, lagna lord Moon and 5th lord (and yogakaraka) Mars are in own signs. The other 5th
lord Ketu is also strong in Pisces. With the strength of lagna lord and 5th lord, this chart can
very well explain childbirth in the year.

Example 3: Childbirth
Birthdata: 1972 May 14, 8:13:30 am (IST), Idar, India (73e00, 23n50)
Event: He had a child on 2004 May 22.
Saptamsa (D-7) chart shows progeny. Rasi & D-7 charts using the 2 approaches are shown
below.

In the old rasi chart, 5th lord Jupiter is in lagna and aspects 5th house. That can indicate
childbirth. In the old D-7 chart, lagna lord Venus is well-placed in the 9th house. Though 9th
lord Mercury seems to aspect lagna, his aspect is only 30% based on actual longitudes, i.e.
Mercury at 29Ar07 is actually in the 8th house from lagna at 8Li00. Lagna contains Sun and
Moon who are not strong. The 5th lord Saturn is in 12th house. There are no strong indications
of childbirth.

In the new rasi chart, lagna lord Saturn is in 5th house with yogakaraka Venus. The other
lagna lord Rahu is with 5th lord Mercury. Lagna is aspected by Jupiter. Childbirth is quite
possible. In the new D-7 chart, 5th lord Venus is well-placed in lagna in an adhimitra rasi.
The 5th house contains exalted 9th lord Saturn. Though lagna lord is placed in 12th, he is in an
adhimitra rasi. Strong 5th house and 5th lord can give a child during the year.

Example 4: Childbirth
Birthdata: 1975 July 13, 4:02 pm (IST), Eluru, India (81e06, 16n42)
Event: She had a child in 2004 May.
Saptamsa (D-7) chart shows progeny. Rasi & D-7 charts using the 2 approaches are shown
below.

In the old rasi chart, lagna lord Saturn is with 5th lord Venus and that can show childbirth.
But 5th lord Venus is in 6th house, in marana karaka sthana. That is not too auspicious. In the

old D-7 chart, lagna contains 9th lord Sun and lagna lord is exalted, though placed in the 8th
house. However, 5th lord Mars is in 6th. Overall, there are no strong indications of childbirth.

In the new rasi chart, lagna lord Mercury is with exalted karaka Jupiter and aspects 5 th house.
The 5th lord is in an adhimitra rasi with 9th lord. In the new D-7 chart, 5th lord Mercury and
7th lord Sun are closely conjoined, giving a powerful raja yoga, and aspect 5 th. Lagna lord
Rahu and 9th lord Venus are together in 9th house. Raja yogas involving all trine lords show
fortunate events in this area of life during the year. A raja yoga involving 5th lord and their
aspect on 5th house can explain childbirth.

More Examples
We have seen some comparisons of old vs new definitions. Now, we will use Pushya-paksha
ayanamsa, reformed definitions of divisional charts and the new definition of Tajaka
varshaphal and see more examples.

Example 5: Childbirth
Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)

Rahu is in lagna. In D-7 chart, the 5th house is aspected by its lord Saturn. Lagna is aspected
by an exalted planet (Sun) and yogakaraka (Saturn). Lagna lord is in own house. Yogakaraka
and 5th lord, Saturn, aspects lagna and lagna lord, in addition to the 5 th house. The strength
and lagna and 5th house can show childbirth in the year.

In rasi chart, karaka and 9th lord Jupiter is in 5th house and aspects lagna. That shows
promise. In D-7 chart, lagna lord Sun and 5th lord Jupiter are conjoined in the 7th house and
aspect lagna. In addition to this raja yoga, the 5 th house contains yogakaraka Mars. This is
quite conducive to an auspicious event like childbirth.

Example 7: Childbirth
Birthdata: 1973 July 26, 9:48:10 pm (IST), Guntur, India (80e27, 16n18)
Event: She had a child in 2003 June.

the 9th lord Venus aspects 5th. In D-7 chart, lagna contains a raja yoga between 9th and 10th
lords. Lagna lord is exalted in the 3rd house, i.e. the 11th house of gains from the 5th house of
children. Most importantly, 5th lord Jupiter is in 11th and aspects the 5th house. This can show
childbirth in the year.

Conclusion

ajaka varshaphal charts or annual solar year charts are re-defined in this write-up
based on the definition of solar years taught by Maharshi Parasara to Maitreya in
Vishnu Purana. Using Pushya-paksha ayanamsa, reformed definitions of
divisional charts and the new definition of Tajaka varshaphal charts, the efficacy of these
charts to see the major events in a year is illustrated in this write-up.
It is hoped that intelligent and sincere students and researchers of this divine subject will
take this knowledge further and contribute to a renaissance in Jyotish and other knowledge
related to rishis.
