How to calculate Lagna of Varsh

(a) [Completed year of age x3]/30 = Bhagphala or Quotient
(b) [(Completed year of age x3)+ Quotient]/12 = Remainder
The Remainder will indicate the Varsh Lagna or Ascendant for that
running year.

For Example: Say a person is running in his 34th year of age. It means
he has completed his 33rd year.
First we calculate using formula at (a)
[33x3] / 30 = 3 as quotient
Now we use formula given at (b)
[(33x3) + 3] / 12 = 6
It means Varsh Pravesh Lagna will 6th number sign which is Virgo.

How to Calculate Tithi of Varsh Pravesh

(a) [Completed year of age x11] /170 = Quotient

(b) [Completed year of age x11] + Quotient + Janam Tithi] / 30 =
The Remainder will be the number of Tithi of Varsh Pravesh.

How to Calculate Muntha Sign of Varsh Pravesh

[Number of natal Ascendant+ Completed year of age] /12 = Remainder.

The Remainder will indicate the Muntha Sign.

What is Ithasala yoga

Itthasala yoga means the yoga of 'intermixing'. The yoga is said to
occur when:

a) The lagnesha and the karyesh aare in mutual aspect. (Tajik

aspects are different from Parashari aspects: the 3, 5, 9, 11 positions
from each other are friendly aspects; 1, 4, 7 and 10 positions are
inimical aspects; the remaining 2, 12, 6, 8 positions are neutral to each
other and, therefore, do not constitute an aspect).

b) These two planets are within the orb in influence from each
other. (The orb is deterined by the average of deeptamshs of the two
planets. The deeptamshas are: Sun 15, Moon 12, Mars 8, Mercury 7,
Jupiter 9, Venus 7 and Saturn 9 degrees).

c) The faster moving planet is behind the slower moving planet.

(Planets in order of decreasing motions are: Moon, Mercury, Venus,
Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn). Retrogression has some bearing on this
third and the most important condition of the Ithasala yoga

i) Retrograde fast moving planet at lesser longitude does not

produce Ithasala yoga since its motion is in the opposite direction to
that of the more advanced slow moving planet. They are actually
moving away from each other, therefore, they are not likely to intermix.
ii) The intensity of Ithasala is increased if the slow moving
planet is retrograde and has higher longitude.
iii) When both the lagnesha and the karyesha (or even one of
them) are retrograde, debilitated, combust or otherwise weak, another
yoga takes over this yoga. It literally means 'cancellation' of the
Ithasala yoga. It is an unfavourable yoga and does not allow the event
to fructity favourably.
