Preface

F
or the last 2 years we have been flushed with
emails, phone calls from all quarters as to the
source of the magical Bhrighu Saral Paddathi
which as per many have re-christened astrology but
one question remained unanswered the logic of these
magical sutras. Mentor a year back had asked us to
find out the logic behind it and our limited mind had
given up on it. As if to answer mentors questions
Abhishekha on his own has worked and created the
logic. As per us his work exhibits sheer GENIUS

He was introduced to jyotish by his but what is Genius to some is not so to others
especially those who can’t see others prosper, a trait
Kulguru at the age of eight. After the initial common among astrologers. Abhishekha’s logic
might not be the Rishis logic/ might not be the logic
trigger early in life, he has pursued the of the writer of BSPs yet it speaks of a genuine
study of jyotish with utmost passion ever logical approach in unraveling the mystery of BSPs.
since. He writes with the pen name – SA Editor/Publisher

S
aptarishis Astrology Research
Team did a splendid job in their
recent volume (volume 7) of the
magazine. One of the key article
series in all their volumes were Bhrigu
Saral Paddathi (Bhrigu is the Sage, Saral
means Easy, Paddathi means Method). I wrote
an article today (Dec 5, 2009) on the same
with a different perspective titled – “A
Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy
1
Methodology” . In this current article I
would summarize the findings of the last
article and try to do a comparative study of
BSP with BCP (Maharshi Bhrighu’s Chakra
Paddhati).

The columns defined in the table above are described in detail below –

Rule # – This is the BSP (acronym for Bhrigu Saral Paddathi) Rule number as given in the
Volume 6 & 7 of the SA magazine.

Planet – The rule is about the planet in this column.

House – The effect of the planet is faced in this house relative to the placement of the planet
in the natal chart.

Aspect – The particular aspect of the planet that falls on the mentioned house.

Age – The age of the native in which he/she experiences the effect of the planet.

Transit – The transit period of natural of the planet to return to its placement in the natal
chart.

Position – The approximate position of the transit planet with respect to the natal position
of the planet in the time specified by the Age column.

Aspect from Transit Planet – The aspect from the transit planet at the age of the native
mentioned with respect to the natal planet.

BCP House Activation – According to Maharshi Bhrigu’s Chakra Paddhati, the house that
is activated in the natal chart in the age of the native specified.

BSP Rule # 6 and BCP


BSP Rule states that in the 27th year of the native, Mars implements 10H from itself.

622
In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”, I discussed the possible
reasoning behind this rule.

When transit Mars would be in the 3H from natal Mars, it would aspect the 10th from natal Mars by
its 8th Aspect.

When transit Mars would be in the 4H from natal Mars, it would aspect the 10th from natal Mars by
its 7th Aspect.

When transit Mars would be in the 7H from natal Mars, it would aspect the 10th from natal Mars by
its 4th Aspect.

As per BCP, the house activated in one’s chart in the 27th year is the 3rd house.

Readers who are not familiar with BCP (Maharshi Bhrighu’s Chakra) are requested to refer
to SA Volume 3.

Mars is the karaka of the 3H and is the natural signification of Agni tattwa (element). Mars
gets digbala in the 10H. The 10th from Mars will be zone for status, work and position where
Mars will punish or reward depending on one’s karma in the 3H of urges.

Readers are encouraged to read the “Publitorial” of SA Vol7 on “Unlocking of Karma”


where the connection between 3H and 10H is indicated.

Why 27th year for this activation?

As per BCP, the 3H of urges gets activated in the years – 3, 15, 27, 39 etc. However, why did
Maharshi Bhrigu mention 27th year specifically?

The reason is also very simple. In a human life, there are two planets that give the energy or
Agni to execute a task. They are Sun and Mars. Sun gives light and Mars gives heat. Both
these planets get digbala (or directional strength) in the 10H. Now, Sun matures in the 22nd
year and Mars in the 28th year. Between 22nd and 28th year, 27th year is the only year when
according to BCP, the 3H of urges gets activated in the native’s life. Thus, the 27th year is
when the native will be tested on matters of the 3H and rewarded or punished accordingly
by the 10th House from Mars. This is the age when we are put to test by the planet of energy
– Mars.

BSP Rule # 8 and BCP


BSP Rule states that in the 38th year of the native, Rahu implements 6H from itself.

In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”, I discussed the possible
reasoning behind this rule.

623
When transit Rahu would be in the 12H from natal Rahu, it would aspect the 6th from natal Rahu by
its 7th Aspect.

When transit Rahu would be in the 12H from natal Rahu, the 6th from natal Rahu would be conjunct
transit Ketu.

As per BCP, the house activated in one’s chart in the 38th year is the 2nd house.

The rule given here by Maharshi Bhrigu is nothing less than work of pure genius. The house
that implements at the 38th year is the 6th house from Rahu. It is widely known by all that
the 6th house from any planet signifies its enemy zone or weakness. Rahu’s biggest enemy is
also known by all – it is none other than shower of light Jupiter. Jupiter is also the karaka of
the 2H. Thus, in the 38th year, Rahu implements its enemy house and thus works as an agent
Jupiter.

Why 38th year for this activation?

As per BCP, the 2H of wealth gets activated in the years – 2, 14, 26, 38 etc. However, why did
Maharshi Bhrigu mention 38th year specifically?

Jupiter matures at 16 years of age. The next 2nd house cycle should have been 26th year of the
native. However, Venus matures in the 25th year and thus over shadows the effect of Jupiter
in the 2nd house. The human mind, in very generic terms, at the age of 25 is more focused on
Venus than Jupiter. The next cycle of 2H comes at the age of 38 and this is when the 6th
from Rahu gets activated (or in other terms Jupiter).Thus, the 38th year is when the native
will be tested on matters of the 2H and rewarded or punished accordingly by Jupiter (also
indicated by the 6th house from natal Rahu).

BSP Rule # 9 and BCP


BSP Rule states that in the 24th year of the native, Ketu implements 12H from itself.

In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”, I discussed the possible
reasoning behind this rule.

When transit Ketu would be in the 10H from natal Ketu, it would aspect the 12th from natal Ketu by
its 3rd Aspect.

When transit Ketu would be in the 10H from natal Ketu, transit Rahu would aspect the 12th from natal
Ketu by its 9th aspect.

As per BCP, the house activated in one’s chart in the 24th year is the 12th house.

The rule given here by Maharshi Bhrigu is nothing less than work of pure genius. The house
that implements at the 24th year is the 12th house from Ketu. Ketu is the planet for
detachment and thereby death. It is a known fact that people with Ketu in their Ascendant

624
would have surely faced death face-2-face in their lives. Also, people with Ketu in Lagna
(and/or aspecting the 5H) are prone to have childbirth issues than people without the
combination. The 12th from Ketu would be indicated by a planet that does just the opposite
i.e. give life. The only planet that can do so is the Moon – the mother.

Thus in the 24th year, the 12th from Ketu gets implemented as it acts as an agent of Moon.

Why 24th year for this activation?

As per BCP, the 12H of loss gets activated in the years – 12, 24, 36, 42 etc. However, why did
Maharshi Bhrigu mention 24th year specifically?

Moon matures at 24 years of age. Thus, the 24th year is when the native will be tested on
matters of the 12H and rewarded or punished accordingly by Moon (also indicated by the 12th
house from natal Ketu).

BSP Rule # 10 and BCP


BSP Rule states that in the 40th year of the native, Jupiter implements 9H from itself by its 9th aspect.

In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”, I discussed the possible
reasoning behind this rule.

When transit Jupiter would be in the 5H from natal Jupiter, it aspect the 9th House from natal Jupiter
by its 5th Aspect (Relative trine placement of natal and transit Jupiter).

As per BCP, the house activated in one’s chart in the 40th year is the 4th house.

4th house of the horoscope is the Vidya sthana (the seat of knowledge). The three houses of
moksha (Moksha Trikona) in a natal chart are 4th, 8th and 12th Houses. In the natural 4H of
Cancer it gets exalted. Apart from this, the cycle of 12 years of Jupiter has a relation with 12
houses of a chart stressing the connection of Jupiter with the moksha trikona of any chart.

Jupiter is the karaka of the 5H and the 9H and is also the natural signification of Akash
tattwa (element). In a chart, Akash Tattwa gets merged with Jala Tattwa (Moksha Trikona)
with time. In childhood, Moon is the primary karaka of the 4H but Jupiter shares this
responsibility with the Moon as one grows up. However, the 9th from Jupiter indicates
dharma and it is a very clear connection with the 4H. Only a person clean at heart can
follow his dharma. The 9th from Jupiter will be the zone for righteousness, luck and dharma
where Jupiter will punish or reward depending on one’s karma based on one’s 4H of purity
at heart.

Why 40th year for this activation?

As per BCP, the 4H of knowledge and learning gets activated in the years – 4, 16, 28, 40 etc.
However, why did Maharshi Bhrigu mention 40th year specifically?

625
In a human life, the primary karaka of 4H is Moon. Jupiter matures at 16 but it is said that
Jupiter truly is man of 30 years of age. Moreover, out of pancha tatvas (five elements one is
made up with), man takes considerable time to comprehend the influence of Akash Tattwa.
4th and 16th year are very tender years of native so Moon would primarily function there. 28th
year is when Mars matures so the focus would be Agni. 40th year would then perhaps be the
only age when the 9th aspect of Jupiter can be completely experienced.

Even in BSP-8 we say Jupiter (as the significator of the 6H from Rahu) giving effect only in
the 38th year.

In BSP-11 as well Jupiter’s 5th aspect will give result only in the 32nd year.

In BSP-10, we see Jupiter’s 9th aspect giving result in the 40th year.

BSP Rule # 11 and BCP


BSP Rule states that in the 32nd year of the native, Jupiter implements 5H from itself by its 5th aspect.

In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”, I discussed the possible
reasoning behind this rule.

When transit Jupiter would be in the 9H from natal Jupiter, it aspect the 5th House from natal Jupiter
by its 9th Aspect (Relative trine placement of natal and transit Jupiter).

As per BCP, the house activated in one’s chart in the 32nd year is the 8th house.

8th house of the horoscope is the Gupta sthana (the seat of hidden/occult knowledge). The
three houses of moksha (Moksha Trikona) in a natal chart are 4th, 8th and 12th Houses. Apart
from this, the cycle of 12 years of Jupiter has a relation with 12 houses of a chart stressing the
connection of Jupiter with the moksha trikona of any chart.

Jupiter is the karaka of the 5H and the 9H and is also the natural signification of Akash
tattwa (element). In a chart, Akash Tattwa gets merged with Jala Tattwa (Moksha
Trikona) with time. In childhood, Saturn is the primary karaka of the 8H but Jupiter shares
this responsibility with the Saturn if one has the promise in one’s chart to know hidden
knowledge. It also shows Tapasya or severe penance without which true knowledge cannot
be gained. However, the 5th from Jupiter indicates creativity, innovation, knowledge
assimilation power and it is a very clear connection with the 8H for an occult knowledge
seeker. Only a fertile mind can grasp the mysteries of the occult. The 5th from Jupiter will be
zone for knowledge, intellect and purva punya and this is where Jupiter will punish or
reward depending on one’s karma based on one’s 8H of austerity and penance.

Why 32nd year for this activation?

626
As per BCP, the 8H of occult knowledge gets activated in the years – 8, 20, 32, 44 etc.
However, why did Maharshi Bhrigu mention 32nd year specifically?

In a human life, the primary karaka of 8H is Saturn. Jupiter matures at 16 but it is said that
Jupiter truly is man of 30 years of age. Moreover, out of pancha tattwas (five elements) one
is made up with, man takes considerable time to comprehend the influence of Akash Tattwa.
8th and 20th year are years where longevity is very critical and important so Saturn would
primarily function. 32nd year would then perhaps be the only age when the 5th aspect of
Jupiter can be completely experienced.

Even in BSP-8 we say Jupiter (as the significator of the 6H from Rahu) giving effect only in
the 38th year.

In BSP-10, we see Jupiter’s 9th aspect giving result in the 40th year.

BSP Rule # 13 and BCP


BSP Rule states that in the 20th year of the native, Saturn implements 3H from itself by its 3rd aspect.

In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”, I discussed the possible
reasoning behind this rule.

When transit Saturn would be in the 9H from natal Saturn, it would aspect the 3rd from natal Saturn
by its 7th Aspect.

As per BCP, the house activated in one’s chart in the 20th year is the 8th house.

8th house of the horoscope is the Gupta sthana (the seat of hidden/occult knowledge).
It is also Ayus sthana (the house of longevity).

It was clearly mentioned in “BSP Rule #11 and BCP” that how the primary karaka of the same
8H changes from Saturn to Jupiter as the age of a person progresses. In ages 8 and 20,
longevity is the primary concern of the 8H.

The karaka of the 8H is Saturn and its 3rd aspect is indeed deadly. Saturn’s 3rd aspect is
sometimes compared to the 3rd eye of Shiva. Saturn’s 3rd aspect would indicate work, labor,
bondage, slavery, constricted feeling, also position, social status, karma. Saturn is a giver of
social marriage as well. It can also signify travel, separation, poverty, sorrow and solitude.

Why 20th year for this activation?

As per BCP, the 8H of longevity gets activated in the years – 8, 20, 32, 44 etc. However, why
did Maharshi Bhrigu mention 20th year specifically?

The primary karaka of 8H is Saturn. Although Saturn reaches maturity at 36 years but in
case of longevity he is the primary karaka. Moreover, Sun the primary karaka of the 1H of

627
health matures at 22 years. Thus if any major event related to Saturn has to happen to the
native especially with matters of the 8H, 20th year would seem the best time.

The Mystery
Of
Planetary Deaths - 1
By
Abhishekha, USA
Copy editor: Andree Leclerc

Introduction

M arana Karaka Sthana is a very


familiar term in popular Vedic
Astrology culture. However,
one might wonder what the origin of this
term is.
Many courses in Vedic Astrology teach
this concept, many books use this concept
but not many actually try to trace back its
origin.

He was introduced to jyotish by his I want to begin this journey by first


analyzing the term Marana Karaka Sthana.
Kulguru at the age of eight. After the initial Marana means death. Karaka means one
trigger early in life, he has pursued the which causes. Sthana means place. In
study of jyotish with utmost passion ever other words a planet when placed in a
since. He writes with the pen name certain place causes death.
Abhishekha and is the Editor/Publisher of I personally found this concept a little too
AIAC Times, Chicago. farfetched so I went on to do my little
research on this.
A definition I found about this term and
concept is provided below –
“The specific most malefic positions of
planets capable of causing death-like
suffering are as follows: - Sun in 12th house,
Moon in 8th house, Mars in 7th house,
Mercury in 7th house, Jupiter in 3rd house,
Venus in 6th house, Saturn in 1st house and
Rahu in 9th house from the Lagna (or dasa
Rasi). Such positions of the planets are
called Marana Sthana (death inflicting) and
the planets become Marana

629
Karaka (death inflictors). When such a death inflictor is in conjunction with or aspected by
malefics or in inimical or depression signs, great grief is sure to come.”
(Chapter IV, Judgment of Results, Page 76, Narayana Dasa by Sanjay Rath)

However, with absolutely no offence to senior modern astrologers, I wanted to get to the
root of the concept. Unless substantiated by a classical reference with ample modern charts,
I personally have a difficulty accepting any theory. This is just my own limitation so I
request the readers of my article not to get too influenced by my mode of thinking. Mine is
rather a questioning one.

Whenever in doubt, I personally refer to the bible of Vedic Astrology called – “Brihat
Parasara Hora Shastra”. I looked it up but was unable to find the term Marana Karaka
Sthana in there. However, in the Atharishtadhyaya (About Evils at birth) I found some
relevant verses.

For readers who have the BPHS Volume I by G.C. Sharma, I am talking about Chapter 11,
page 171.

Shashtashtarishphagachandrah krura khetaishcha vishchita |

Jatasya mrityuda sadhyatvashtavarshay shubheksheetah ||

~ Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra, Atharishtadhyaya, Shloka 3

This translates to – “If Moon is placed in Trik Houses from Lagna (6th, 8th or 12th) and
receives aspects from krura planets (natural malefics), then such a native may die soon after
his/her birth. However, if shubha planets (natural benefics) aspect the Moon, the native
may live to be eight years of age.”

The said chapter from where the verse has been quoted has many such combinations
detailed out by Parasara which relates to early death of the native or his/her parents.

However, my search was for the word “Marana Karaka Sthana”. I did consult some scholars
on this and reached a conclusion that such phrase doesn’t exist in BPHS.

I was told about another classic which exists in three parts and is referred by many scholars
and was called “Jataka Parijata”.

The Term
Vaidyanath Dikshit (15th century CE) wrote a great classic called “Jataka Parijata”. Jataka
means that the work deals with natal horoscopy.

630
Parijata is a flower with some very interesting stories about it. In the book “Brahma's Hair -
The Mythology of Indian Plants”, Maneka Gandhi & Yasmin Singh give a beautiful description
about the origin and stories related to Parijata.
All the details given below on Parijata are taken from the Maneka Gandhi and Yasmin
Singh’s book.
Parijata (Sanskrit) is called Coral Jasmine.
Latin Name: Nyctanthes arbortristis
English Names: Queen of the Night, Coral Jasmine
Indian Names: Shephalika, Siuli (Bengali); Harashringara (Hindi); Parijata, Kharsati
(Marathi); Parijata (Sanskrit); Parijata, Paghala (Tamil)
Family: Oleaceae
Nyctanthes means Night Flower and arbortristis the Sad Tree. Parijata, the Sanskrit name,
means descended from the sea. Harashringara means ornament of the gods or beautiful
ornament.
The flowers are gathered for religious offerings and to make garlands. The orange heart is
used for dyeing silk and cotton, a practice that started with Buddhist monks whose orange
robes were given their color by this flower.
The Parijata is regarded in Hindu mythology as one of the five wish-granting trees of Devaloka.
Vaidyanath Dikshit would have named his book Jataka Parijata to emphasize the fact that
just like Parijata is a wish-filling tree of heaven, Jataka Parijata would be of similar caliber
when dealing with the literature of jyotish.
In Kalachakradasadhyay, Shloka 34-36 is the only place in the 3-volume book where I got
something closest to “Marana Karaka Sthana”.
Bhratristhangato Jeevo Darasthangatoh Kujah |
Tatha Janmogato Mando Rahurnavamarashigah ||
Chandroashtamagrihah Yatah Suryo Riphahgrihah |
Budhah Saptambhavasthah Bhargav Shatrurashigah ||

631
Etwevam Maranasthanah Tasmin Paapyuteshthava |
Paapdrashtewarinichasthe Durvaley Dukhamanuyat ||
The English translation of the above verse as given by V. Subramanya Sastri is given below:
Jupiter in the third house, Mars in the seventh, Saturn in the natal star, Rahu in the ninth
house, Moon in the eighth house, Sun in the twelfth house, Mercury in the seventh and
Venus in an inimical house are in their Maranasthana (or dead place). When such a planet is
in conjunction with or aspected by a malefic planet or occupies an inimical or depressed
house or is destitute of strength, the person concerned comes to grief.

The Analysis
Maranasthana and Marana Karaka Sthana, though similar sounding, doesn’t at all mean the
same thing. Maranasthana would mean a dead zone for a planet whereas Marana Karaka
Sthana would mean the place where a death inflictor is placed (in this a planet).
Also, in the verse above, one needs to carefully study the choice of words of Vaidyanath
Dikshit.
Janmogato Mando
The above is interpreted by Sastri as Saturn (Mando) in natal star (Janmogato). However,
Sanjay Rath has mentioned Saturn in the first house. Which interpretation should one select
to be correct? The answer lies in the rest of the three volumes classic of Vaidyanath Dikshit.
Over and again when referring to the first house, Vaidyanath Dikshit has used the word
Lagna or its variation. The word Janma is always used for birth star. Janma nakshatra is the
nakshatra of the Moon at the time of birth; janma rasi is the Moon sign. Janmogato can
never mean the first house.
Another very important aspect of this verse also needs attention.
The chapter (or adhyaya) deals with Kaalchakra. In fact from Shloka 13 to Shloka 31 every
verse deals with the effect of the Deha and Jeeva in the Kaalchakra. The Shloka 32 & 33 also
seem to be connected to Shloka 31 but Shloka 34-36, the last two shlokas of the adhyaya seem
totally out of place with respect to the current adhyaya of Kaalchakra. One can of course
argue that nothing is out of place in jyotish but that argument would be stretching things too
much. One could also put in a Vimshottari dasa verse in the adhyaya and take it to be part of
the adhyaya but that would not “look” correct.
We know that ancient knowledge has gone through the dark ages of misinterpretation and
abridged and modified editions have taken birth from such alterations. This verse seems to
be one such case.

Mercury’s MKS position changed Seventh or Fourth– A Research


Another version of MKS that recently surfaced among the jyotish cult was assigning the
fourth house to Mercury along with the seventh to be its MKS position.

632
The reference of the verse given was again from Jataka Parijata, Volume I, Adhyaya 2
(Grahakharupagunadhyaya), Shloka 52 & 72.
I am producing the shlokas below for the reader’s reference-
Kamavaninandanrashiyata Setenduputramaravandhyamanah |
Arishtadasteykhiljatakeshu Sadashtamastha Shanirishtidah Sthyatah || (52)
Translation by Sastri - The position of Venus in the seventh house, Mercury in the forth
house and Jupiter in the fifth house from the Ascendant is harmful. Saturn in the eighth
house from Lagna gives invariably what is agreeable.

This Shloka (52) has to be studied in conjunction to Shloka 51 which clearly mentions the
karakas of the various houses and assigns the fourth house to both Moon and Mercury, the
seventh to Venus, the fifth to Jupiter and the eight to Saturn. This shloka clearly mentions
the exception to the shloka 51 and is in other words affirms the statement “Karaka bhava
nasha” i.e. some karakas when placed in the houses they rule ruin them.
Samanurindu Shashijarichturthey Guru Sutey Bhumisuteh Kutumbhey|
Bhriguh sapatey Ravijah kalatrey Vilagnatwastey Viphala Bhawanti || (72)
Translation by Sastri - When the Moon is in conjunction with the Sun, Mercury is in the
fourth house from Lagna, Jupiter in the fifth house, Mars in the second house, Venus in the
sixth house and Saturn in the seventh house, they becomes barren of effect.
Sastri writes in his notes that it is difficult to reconcile with the statement since Saturn gets
directional strength (digbala) in the seventh house.
The condition of this verse is the conjunction of the Moon and the Sun, or in other words
New Moon. This now relates to “Paksha bala” (strength of planets based on the fortnight –
dark and bright). Benefics will be weak near New Moon and malefic will be strong. Thus
Mercury, Jupiter and Venus will be weak and Mars and Saturn will be strong. In such a case
Mars and Saturn’s malefic influence will be felt in the maraka houses of second and the
seventh house.
However, none of the above verses mention Mercury in fourth house to be its death place.

Case Studies
Case studies are the best answer to any theory in Jyotish (Vedic Astrology).
Jupiter in the 3rd House – The karaka of the 3rd House is Mars. The natural 3rd sign is Gemini
ruled by Mercury. The third house is the house of initiation of the urges, the first house of
the kama trikonas. The kama houses are 3, 7 and 11. Jupiter is the karaka for 11th House since
it deals with the results which give us joy. Jupiter in the 7H aspects the first house by graha
drishti. Moreover, the karaka for the seventh house is Venus. Jupiter in the 7H can give
excessive sexuality but if Venus is well-placed and aspected by Jupiter, things remain under

633
control. Moreover, Jupiter supports marriage for the continuation of the lineage in form of
children. In this way, it is not that bad in the 7H. However, the third house is the house of
initiation of urges. Energy is the language in the 3H to set things moving. If Jupiter has to
control the activities of this house, he has to forego of his usual duties of dharma. We shall
see cases where, in charts of people with Jupiter in the 3H, their sexuality and urges are
undoubtedly questioned in the light of righteousness or dharma. The ripples of this will be
felt in the houses whose karaka is Jupiter – 2H, 5H, 9H, 11H.
Mars in the 7th House – The karaka of the 7H is Venus and the house signifies marriage and
partnership. The natural seventh sign is Libra which deals with equality (in marriage) and
balance. Mars is the karaka of the 6H of celibacy and service. In the 7H, it will bring in ego
and battles. War is fine with enemies but not in marriage. Adjustment is the key to a
successful marriage and ego has no place in this house. Mars is the planet of individuality,
the primary significator of Agni Tattwa. Mars being in 7H, the person’s adjustment
capabilities will surely be questioned. The ripples of such a placement of Mars will be felt in
the houses whose karaka is Mars – 3H, 6H.
Saturn in the 1st House – The karaka of the 1H is Sun and signifies health, creativity and
energy. Saturn is a slow planet and does indicate lethargy. However, Saturn is also the
significator of health by virtue of being the karaka of the 8H. Apart from being slow and
cautious, I don’t see any reason why Saturn in the 1H should be in its death zone. Case
studies can show better results. However, if Saturn in 1H is in its death zone then the ripples
will be felt in 6H, 8H, 10H and 12H.
Saturn in the natal star – On the other hand, if Saturn is with the Moon in the birth star,
such a placement of Saturn can really be its death zone. Moon is the primary karaka for
nourishment and life. It also cures diseases and is the natural karaka of the fourth house.
Saturn is the karaka of the 8th House of longevity and is the primary significator of the
Vayu Tattwa. Moon doesn’t rule any Tattwa but rules motion (“Gati”). With Moon, Saturn
becomes very disturbed and this exhausts the vayu tattwa in one thereby drastically
disturbing one’s rest, sleep, leisure and personal space (all signified by Saturn). The ripples
of this can be felt in the houses whose karaka is Saturn - 6H, 8H, 10H and 12H.
Rahu in the 9th House – The karakas of the 9H are Sun and Jupiter. Rahu signifies the North
node of eclipse or the mean point of total absence of luminaries. It stands for absence or
reversal of dharma. In the 9H, it will reverse the route of dharma that the person should
normally be initiated in. It will make a sage’s child a sinner and a sinner’s child a sage. This
is the reason why Rahu is associated with things which are foreign to us. However, in this
reversal, Rahu invariably gives a dharma to the native. Rahu, who is supposed to spoil
dharma, starts giving it and thus it falls short of its significance and hence such a placement
is Rahu’s death placement.
Moon in the 8th House – The natural karaka of the 8H is Saturn. Moon is the natural
significator of 4H and cure. When Moon is in the 8H, it tries to bestow long life but in the
process exhausts the 4H and in such cases, invariably, the native suffers from some illness or
the lack of cure. The ripples of this placement will be felt in houses whose karaka is Moon –
4H.
Sun in the 12th House – The karaka for the 12H is Saturn. It is the house of resting and sleep.
Sun is the karaka of creativity and health. Although it doesn’t rule any tattwa, it rules the

634
light of Agni (whereas Mars rules the heat related to Agni tattwa). When placed in the 12H,
the native will face issues in health, children, parents and profession. The ripples of this
placement will be felt in houses for who Sun is karaka – 1H, 9H, 10H.
Mercury in the 7th House – The karaka of the 7H is Venus. It is the house of marriage and
partnership. The only reason why Mercury could be uncomfortable in this house would be
based on the fact that it is an adolescent planet, not completely matured to understand
sexuality. However, Mercury is a very flexible and easily influenced planet as well, so if
with another planet, the quality of Mercury changes considerably. I would not agree to the
fact that Mercury in the 7H would be in its death zone. However, case studies can show
better results. If 7H is the death zone of Mercury, then ripples will be faced in finances of
the native relating to the 10H.
Mercury in the 4th House – The karaka of the 4H is Moon. It is the house of emotion and
feelings. 4H is also the house of initial education and understanding. However, 10H is an
emotionless house indicating that emotion should never be applied at work. If Mercury is in
the 4H, the ripples will be felt in the finances of the 10H as it is the co-karaka of the 10H.
Venus in the 6th House – The karaka of the 6H is Mars. It is the house of celibacy and
service. Venus is the karaka of the 7H and deals with companionship. When in the 6H, the
ripples will be felt in the 7H.
One has to carefully note a few points before he/she reaches any conclusion on planetary
death places. The points are mentioned below –
1) Shadbala of planets
2) Association of benefics, malefic, lagna lord, Moon and Sun
3) Aspects – malefic aspects only will create havoc, if unaspected or benefic(s) aspect
then there will be no/negligible damage to the karakwatta of the planet (e.g. Venus is
the karaka of the 7H)

Jupiter in 3H Cases
Case I - Adolf Hitler

In case of Hitler, although in Moolatrikona sign, Jupiter is aspected by Rahu in


the 9H. Not only is Jup in 3H but also Rahu is in 9H, Mars in 7H and Mercury in
7H in Maranashthana as well. Jupiter rules 3H and 6H, Rahu rules 5H, Mars rules
2H & 7H. We cannot say that these three planets were dead in his chart. The
maranasthana implication may be understood in this case as Jupiter giving lack
of humanitarian aspect, Mars giving lack of stable relationship and Rahu giving
lack of dharma.

635
Case II - Sathya Sai Baba

In case of Sathya Sai Baba, the Jupiter in the 3H is debilitated and aspected by
Saturn in Lagna by Rasi drishti. The blemish that this brought on Baba was
charges of sexual abuse which hits the authenticity and genuineness of a sadhu.
Moon is also in Maranasthana with Rahu in the 8H which indicates that a large
section of the masses will be hurt by such accusations and their belief will be
questioned (Rahu with Moon).

Case III - Pamela Anderson

In case of Pamela, Jupiter is exalted in the 3H in maranasthana. However, Jupiter


is exalted having Rasi drishti on the Lagna. The only area of life this Jupiter could
have hit was the 3H and did give excessive indulgence in relationships and not
the lack of it.

Case I
In case of Hitler, Jupiter is with Moon and Ketu and is being aspected by Rahu (rasi drishti).
It is in its Moolatrikona sign but in the 3H. By my initial definition, this placement of
Jupiter will hit the following houses – 2H, 5H, 9H, 11H.
2H – Family and wealth. This house is also what one considers to be his/her own
community. The 2H is strongly influenced by the planets in the 7H by rasi drishti which
guards the damage to this house. Sun and Mars both are extremely protective planets and he
will guard his nation like a father and a fighter. Venus although retrograde along with
Mercury will give him wealth by means of war (Mars). This also indicates extreme
possessiveness about one’s own community. Moreover, Mars, Saturn and Sun have rasi
drishti on the 2H which indicates that wealth will be taken from others by means of force
and malefic means.
5H – children, followers and love. This house will suffer since malefic influence of 5H will
keep him devoid of love and affection, although he will long for it. Adolf Hitler’s romantic
relationships always ended in death (his niece). However, sexuality will be an issue with
him due to such malefic influence in his 5H and he will believe in force in relationship.

636
9H – dharma, society, principles. This house will suffer greatly since Rahu is placed in this
house in maranasthana (dead zone). Moon, Jupiter, Ketu have rasi drishti on the 9H and it is
marred by the malefic position of Rahu. It indicates that his principles of humanity will be
marred by greed.
11H – malefic planets aspecting 11H indicates that wealth will be acquired by malefic means
(in this case authority – Sun, force – Mars).
Case II
In case of Satya Sai Baba, Jupiter in maranasthana is aspected by Mercury (R), Venus, Sun
(malefic) and Saturn (malefic).

2H – community, wealth, food. This has Ketu aspected by Moon, Rahu indicating surplus
wealth as well as detachment towards the same. Rahu’s aspect does mean that some ill-fame
will be associated with the community. In 2000, UNESCO withdrew its co-sponsorship of
an education conference in Puttaparthi, explaining that it was deeply concerned about the
allegations that have been leveled at Sathya Sai Baba. However in 2006 it was reported that
UNESCO withdrew its media advisory on Sai Baba from the archive website. In a
statement sent to the Sathya Sai Organization, UNESCO stated, "I do appreciate this
concern and wish to inform you that following your personal intervention, the media
advisory in question was immediately withdrawn from the archives of the UNESCO's

637
website for education". The Guardian and DNA noted that a travel warning was issued by
the US State Department based on allegations.
5H – children, followers, disciples. This house has aspect from Ketu, Moon and Rahu and
suffers greatly. Jupiter’s maranasthana will surely affect this house. In 2004, the BBC aired
the documentary entitled ‘The Secret Swami’ in the United Kingdom and also on BBC
World in its series 'The World Uncovered'. BBC World has long been broadcast to most
countries of the world. One central theme of the BBC documentary was based on a disciple,
Alaya Rahm's, sexual abuse allegations about Sathya Sai Baba. The documentary
interviewed him together with Mark Roche, who had devoted 25 years of his life since 1969
to the movement and alleged that Sathya Sai Baba took oral sex from him. A previous
documentary, ‘Seduced By Sai Baba’, was produced by Denmark's national television and
radio broadcast company, Danish Radio (DR), carried interviews of serious sex abuse
allegations by three former male devotees. In October 2007, an official of the Sai Trust
announced that Sathya Sai Baba would make a 'moon appearance' and asked devotees to
proceed towards the (Puttaparthi) airport. The IANS reports "the 'miracle' did not happen"
and his devotees "waited for an hour before dispersing." No explanation was offered by the
Sai Trust on "why the 'miracle' failed to materialize." Rationalists claimed this was an
attempt by the Sai Trust to boost the Baba's waning popularity, while others felt the clouds
played spoilsport in hiding the moon (it was overcast in Puttaparthi). Across the globe,
however, many reported seeing a 'moon appearance' by Sai Baba.
9H- dharma. This house has rasi drishti from Sun, Mer (R), Sat and Venus from Lagna and
considerable support. The karaka of the 9H Sun aspects this house and Jupiter aspects by
Graha drishti which means that, in society, he will still be accepted as a Guru.
11H – gains. This house is also aspected by Moon, Rahu and Ketu and does indicate a lot of
income from people (Moon), obsessed people (Rahu) and fanatic followers (Ketu).
Case III
In case of Anderson, Jupiter is exalted and un-afflicted by any planet. However, by virtue of
being in the 3H, it will create issues in the 2H, 5H, 9H, 11H unless otherwise supported.

2H-Well supported by Sun and Mer (R), aspected by Saturn and Mars. However, Saturn
and Mars aspect on Sun and Mer (R) will show her attitude towards the community and her
fight for violence (Mars) against animals and her views on animal rights (Sun, Saturn).

638
5H-Mars aspected by Sun, Mer(R), Saturn shows a lot of issues in her love life and issues
with becoming a mother. She has had a miscarriage already.
9H-Aspected by Venus shows her dharma as a celebrity and her support for animal rights
and her vegetarian views.
11H – Saturn in the 11H confers gains from masses (by watching her films) and aspected by
Mars, Sun and Mer.

Case Studies

Mars in the 7th House – The karaka of the 7H is Venus and the house signifies marriage and
partnership. The natural seventh sign is Libra which deals with equality (in marriage) and
balance. Mars is the karaka of the 6H of celibacy and service. In the 7H, it will bring in ego
and battles. War is fine with enemies but not in marriage. Adjustment is the key to a
successful marriage and ego has no place in this house. Mars is the planet of individuality,
the primary significator of Agni Tattwa. Mars being in 7H, the person’s adjustment
capabilities will surely be questioned. The ripples of such a placement of Mars will be felt in
the houses whose karaka is Mars – 3H, 6H.

One has to carefully note a few points before he/she reaches any conclusion on planetary
death places. The points are mentioned below –

1) Shadbala of planets
2) Association of benefics, malefic, lagna lord, Moon and Sun
3) Aspects – malefic aspects only will create havoc, if unaspected or benefic(s) aspect
then there will be no/negligible damage to the karakatwa of the planet

Mars in 7H Cases

Case I – Clint Eastwood

In case of Clint Eastwood, Mars is placed in maranasthana in mooltrikona sign of


Aries with Rahu. The karaka of 7H Venus is with Jupiter in the 9H. Relationship
problems related to adjustment issues will surface in his life and there will
invariably be separation from spouse, if married. Clint married twice and had
many partners. However, since the karaka Venus is with a benefic Jupiter, his
love life will not be a disaster even after his multiple relationships.

639
Case II – George H W Bush Sr.

In case of Bush Sr., Mars is with Ketu in Aquarius and the karaka Venus has the
benefic rasi drishti from Moon. However, adjustment with partners would be an
issue and he would like to resolve things with a war (Mars) and it may be
sometimes not instinctive (Ketu).

Case III – Sean Connery

In case of Sean Connery, Jupiter is with Mars in Gemini. However, the karaka
Venus is debilitated in Virgo with exalted Mercury and benefic Moon. This
combination does indicate trouble with spouse but also indicates many
relationships.

Case I
In case of Clint Eastwood, Mars is placed in maranasthana in mooltrikona sign of Aries
with Rahu. The karaka of 7H Venus is with Jupiter in the 9H. Relationship problems related
to adjustment issues will surface in his life and there will invariably be separation from
spouse, if married. Clint married twice and had many partners. However, since the karaka
Venus is with a benefic Jupiter, his love life will not be a disaster even after his multiple
relationships. The ripples of this should be felt in – 3H, 6H

3H – Social Interaction. Mars is the karaka of this house in maranasthana and retro Saturn is
in this house, zodiac sign Sagittarius. Eastwood was not interested in academic pursuits and
records indicate he attended summer school. Although he had many friends, many of them
rich unlike himself, he was something of a rebel, and despite having athletic and musical
talents, he shunned playing on school teams and in school bands. Because of his height and
athleticism, Eastwood was told he would make a good basketball player, but he was more
interested in individualistic middle-class sports like tennis and golf, a passion he retains
today.

640
He then enrolled at Oakland Technical High School, where he caught the attention of
drama teachers who encouraged him to enlist in school plays, but he showed no interest, and
according to Clint, "fast cars and easy women" were all he had on his mind. These events
clearly indicate an afflicted 3H.

6H – service, celibacy/separation from partner and enemies. We see Mars in Aries in the 7H
with its dire enemy Rahu. This surely indicates a military bend of mind and service thereof.
Eastwood had intended to go to Seattle University to major in music but in 1950, during the
Korean War, he was drafted into the U.S. Army. He was posted to Fort Ord where his
certificate as a lifeguard saw him appointed as a life-saving and swimming instructor. The
karaka Mars with Rahu indicates some kind of accident in service life. In October 1951, he
was aboard a Douglas AD-1 military flight that crashed into the Pacific Ocean north of San
Francisco (Drake's Bay). He escaped serious injury, and with the help of an inflatable raft,
swam to shore. The crash hit headline news on October 1, 1951 on the front page of the San
Francisco Chronicle. Eastwood left Fort Ord in the spring of 1951 and moved back up to
Seattle where he worked as a lifeguard for some time. However, as he had little money and
few friends in Seattle, he moved down to Los Angeles.

Multiple break-ups and divorces are traits of this combination of Mars. Eastwood married
model and fellow college student Maggie Johnson on December 19, 1953, six months after
meeting on a blind date. They had two children: Kyle Eastwood (born May 19, 1968) and
Alison Eastwood (born May 22, 1972). During the marriage, he fathered a daughter, Kimber
(born June 17 1964), by Roxanne Tunis. Johnson filed for a legal separation in 1978. Eastwood
and Johnson finalized their divorce in May 1984. Eastwood had a long-running, public
relationship with actress Sondra Locke. Their relationship ended acrimoniously in 1989.
Locke filed a palimony suit against Eastwood, and the litigation continued for a decade.
Locke and Eastwood finally resolved the dispute with a non-public settlement in 1999.
During his cohabitation with Locke, Eastwood had a relationship with flight attendant
Jacklyn Reeves, with whom he had a son, Scott, and a daughter, Kathryn. The fact that Scott
and Kathryn Reeves were the actor's children was not publicly known until it was reported
by the National Enquirer in the mid-1990s. Following his breakup with Locke, Eastwood
moved in with Frances Fisher. Fisher moved out of their shared home in 1995, but later
appeared with Eastwood in True Crime. Eastwood married anchorwoman Dina Ruiz, 35
years his junior, on March 31, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The couple's daughter, Morgan

641
Eastwood, was born on December 12, 1996. The karaka of 7H, Venus is with Jupiter (karaka
of 5H) in the 9H. This assures children from marriages.

Case II
In case of Bush Sr., Mars is with Ketu in Aquarius and the karaka Venus has the benefic rasi
drishti from Moon. However, adjustment with partners would be an issue and he would like
to resolve things with a war (Mars) and it may be sometimes not instinctive (Ketu).

3H – Social Interaction. Just like Clint, Bush Sr. also has Saturn (R) in the third house.
However, the sign is Libra which is aspected by Mars and Ketu. Mars is the karaka of 3H in
maranasthana. Bush began his formal education at the Greenwich Country Day School in
Greenwich. Beginning in 1936, he attended Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts,
where he held a large number of leadership positions including being the president of the
senior class and secretary of the student council, president of the community fund-raising
group, a member of the editorial board of the school newspaper, and captain of both the
varsity baseball and soccer teams. This does prove that the 3H proved extremely well for
Mr. Bush.

6H – service, celibacy/separation from partner and enemies. Mars aspecting the lagna lord
as well as the lagna by graha drishti will have give the native a military bend of mind.
Following the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, Bush decided to join the US Navy,
so after graduating from Phillips Academy earlier in 1942, he became a naval aviator at the
age of 18. After completing the 10-month course, he was commissioned as an ensign in the
U.S. Naval Reserve at Corpus Christi, Texas on June 9, 1943, just three days before his 19th
birthday, which made him the youngest naval aviator to that date.

George Bush married Barbara Pierce on January 6, 1945, only weeks after his return from the
Pacific. Their marriage produced six children: George Walker Bush (born 1946), Pauline
Robinson Bush ("Robin", 1949–1953, died of leukemia), John Ellis "Jeb" Bush (born 1953), Neil
Mallon Bush (born 1955), Marvin Pierce Bush (born 1956), and Dorothy Bush Koch (born
1959).

642
Apparently, there doesn’t seem to be any issue with this placement of Mars in the 3H and
6H as well as in the 7H. This could be because Mars is involved in the Tapaswi Yoga with
Saturn, Ketu and Venus in trines.

Case III
In case of Sean Connery, Jupiter is with Mars in Gemini. However, the karaka Venus is
debilitated in Virgo with exalted Mercury and benefic Moon. This combination does
indicate trouble with spouse but also indicates many relationships.

3H - Social Interaction. Although not much is known about his early life, it is known that
Connery shot to international fame by playing the role of James Bond. The character of
James Bond is all about courage and dare devil acts to save the world.

6H - service, celibacy/separation from partner and enemies. Connery was married to actress
Diane Cilento from 1962 to 1973. They had a son, actor Jason Connery. Connery has been
married to French painter Micheline Roquebrune (born 1929) since 1975. In her 2006
autobiography ‘My Nine Lives’, as well as in subsequent interviews on radio and in print,
Diane Cilento claimed that Connery had beaten her on several occasions. Connery
vehemently denied the accusations. In a December 1987 interview with Barbara Walters, he
stated that it would be acceptable for a man to hit a woman with an open hand, if she
continues to provoke the man after he concedes an argument to her. Connery had made
similar remarks in a November 1965 interview with Playboy magazine on the set of
Thunderball: "I don't think there is anything particularly wrong about hitting a woman ... If
a woman is a bitch, or hysterical, or bloody-minded continually, then I'd do it." In 1993,
Vanity Fair quoted him saying there are confrontational women who "want a smack". This
does show the effects of a maranasthana Mars aspected by rasi drishti by a debilitated
Venus.

In part 2, I will deal with Saturn in 1H and Saturn in natal star case studies.

Thy Notes – 3

Saptarishis Astrology

Combining Bhrighu Ascendant & Pending Karma Technique

In the last issue we had revealed in BSP-14 the Bhrighu Asc and how to see
the Past Life Trait that one brings into this life. Let us see Deepak Chopra’s
Chart

1) His Asc is Aq which is number 11 so to get Bhrighu Asc you go to the


11H of the chart which becomes the Bhrighu Asc, which is the 3rd house of
writing from 9H of Higher Knowledge and also from Guru and his
writings, made him a popular Guru of Spirituality.
2) The lord of his Bhrigu Asc is Jup placed in the 9H of Guru and Higher
Knowledge where Sun is placed in the sign of Venus. So one can
presume that dasa of Jup, Sun or Ven can give what he is ordained from
the past to give
3) His Jup MD Ven AD and Jup MD Sun AD ran from 1991 to 1995,
Chopra produced the following titles which were runaway success and
made him an international guru of spirituality especially the 1994 title. It

644
is important to note that his Sun1 is debilitated in the 9H of bhagya but
still he achieved Bhagya (Fame Fortune).

Bhrighu Pending Karma Technique

In Last Issues Editorial/Publitorial a Pending Karma Technique was


revealed which is observe the 6H, its planets and its lord and the story of life
will reveal. See in the case of Deepak Chopra, the Eternal Immortal Yogi
Saturn is sitting there who is BK (writer in Jaimini) in the 6H of Disease and
being the 12L of spirituality, note disease and spirituality and Saturn’s deep
thinking attitude. Its lord Moon is GK (disease) in the 8H of Chronic
Disease. So the clues you would get is something to do with diseases and
healing and writing. Incidentally, Chopra had an illustrious medical career,
also did Ayurveda and has authored more than 45 best seller books (Saturn is
BK) with 20 million sales worldwide translated into 35 languages and his first
book was on health (6H Saturn and 6L in 8H of chronic disease, which most
importantly is the 3rd of writing from the 6th house – mark this) which was
titled, Creating Health, and is credited with helping to create initial,
international recognition for Chopra. 2

Divisional Charts & Bhrighu Astrology

1
Sun is swagrahi (own house) in D 60

Reference: Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deepak_Chopra

645
Dasamsa shows the Karma for which one is born. Now, although Astro Data
Bank gives only an A rating for the 15.45 time it also says another time of
‘Linda Clark quotes him (Rose Marcus, assistant to Susan Miller, has 3:51 PM
from the Chopra Centre. They sent his vedic chart out in one of the mailers
last year)’

Even this new time does not change his D-10 divisional, now see Dasamsa
Asc is Number 7 so the Bhrighu Asc in D10 comes as to the 7H of Aries
which is the house of public limelight/public platform and the sign Aries
denotes the body/health of an individual and ‘Everything Else’. Its lord is
Mars in the 9H of higher knowledge & publishing and Mars denotes Ink,
Mars is conjoined with Moon the mind and emotions who is the 10L of karma,
no doubt he wrote books on health and spirituality (Moon disposits Saturn
Mer Rahu) and all this happening in the 9H of Guru made him one.

The Pending Karma technique is clear here, the 6L is in the 5H of authorship


and the planet is Guru/Jupiter, he became a Guru by writing, period.

Tiger Woods

Ψ 6H and its lord shows pending karma, use Bhrighu Asc – his normal Asc
is Virgo, which is 6 number sign and so see 6H of sports, 10th from it
contains Moon Venus combo in 3h of hands, 6L is Saturn and its co lord
is Rahu, both Saturn Rahus dispositor conjoins in the 3H of hands where

646
debilitated Moon with Venus (lot of money) is involved, he made his
mark in Golf.

Ψ Again use here Bhrighu Asc and Pending Karma Technique. Now see
his 6H its lord is Saturn in the 11H of wife and children, he owes
something to them. Moon, the dispositor of this Saturn goes in the 3H of
hands (golf is played with hands) and this Moon is with Venus, a
combination for cheating in the sign of Scorpio which is the 8H of the
natural zodiac of sex. He had some sexual affairs while married and this
caused shame to his wife. The other co-lord of 6H is Rahu placed in the
second house of one’s name and family. As soon as it became apparent
that what he did was true, he immediately released a press statement
that he had lead down his family (2H), some pending karma here
towards his name and family which he had to pay back.

P From London & Usage of BCP

T his call came from a family members close friend saying that one of
her students is in trouble and he is based in London and without our
permission, she passed on our mobile number to her student in
London. She said he is in deep depression and for a student to call up her
teacher after so many years and ask for help it must be something important.
Within 15 minutes the call came saying that he is facing lot of mental agony
due to his parents & family members. He said he is not sure of his birth time
but it must be around 11.30 pm. He was instantly asked the status of his
marriage life for which he replied that his marriage was over long back and
the child is also not with him, but his immediate problem is his family back in
India. He was asked if he went abroad before 1990 or after for which he replied
that ‘Gone Abroad to UK - 10th Sept 1988.

647
1. Very traumatic period right now (26th Apr 2010)
2. Father is a chronic alcoholic, he hit his father as his father had destroyed the
entire family due to his drinking and tortured his mother, now his mother is
depressive in nature, this is from last 12 years. Not sure when he beat his
father but heard that around 11-12 years back he did it. Note Rahu with Moon
in 10H of father, afflicting Mother (moon), rahu denotes drinking and his
father was an alcoholic which is further ratified due to Sun being in the 4H
with Ketu. We asked him if he is also drinking he said he started since 2
years.
3. See his Saturn dasa is running along with Ashtam Saturn.

Vimsottari Dasa:

Sat MD: 2006-12-14 - 2025-12-14


Merc AD: 2009-12-17 - 2012-08-26

Now see 5H in all the 3 notes


a) He is running Ashtam Shani - Saturn is in the 5th house, 8th from natal
moon (called Ashtam Shani) so 5H of mind is affected
b) He is running Saturn MD and Mer AD and Mer is placed in the 5H (note)
even though exalted but conjoined with 8L Jup. Note Mer is the 2L of family
and he is facing troubles due to them for which he called from London
c) Most important he is running 41st year now, which means 5H is activated
(36+5=41) via Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi.

In our very first article we had mentioned that in order to effectively use BCP
when coupled with dasas and transits, its most most effective and the above is
an example of how BCP combined with Dasa combined with Gochar has
given the above result wherein he is too depressed and is calling from London
at length due to family problems (2L of family in the 5H of BCP focus year).
His family problem is the focus of the year.

Mentor & This Chart

A part from many remedies he was advised to feed Moong (for


Mercury) to pigeons on a Wednesday and to go and serve old people
(for Saturn) on Saturdays for the next 19 years. Two of our writers
U.K.Jha & Babban Singh have been constantly behind us to make mentor
write articles and why mentor does not practice astrology, our reply to them

648
regards this is mentor has done the mistake of reading Gita, the Holy Book
Of Indians and he considers even one incorrect article, one wrong prediction a
great sin for the astrologer. He knows that current level of astrological
knowledge is not even 10 % so it is not correct to misguide others by free or
paid predictions or any sort of article. He constantly professes in the most
humble manner that he does not know astrology and after speaking to him
daily for minimum 1 hour for the last 5 years we know for sure that even we
do not know astrology.
After the above chart reading after 2 hours we had our daily chat with
Mentor to whom we started describing the Rasi chart details on the phone
house, first we said Ta lagna Venus in the 3H, mentor said without knowing
the whole chart that he must be in a good position (he was born in India and
moved to London). Then we said Jupiter Mercury in the 5H, he said bad
combination there (note his Mer AD has given him problems), then we
described the whole rasi chart only, no degrees no divisionals. Mentor said
‘Yeh Admi Apne Baap Ko Bhi Maarega’ (this man would beat his own father).
The carpet was removed from our feet since just 2 hours back the man had told us that
he has beaten his own father and this phenomenon is not even 0.5 % in a society
like India so the prediction from mentor gains more weight age. We
immediately asked mentor the reasoning behind his prediction he joking said
that we should employ him with a job in Saptarishis Astrology. Later he gave
some logic of Rahu Moon in 10H and Sun in 4H with Ketu and Saturn
retrograde but to make such a kind of prediction is too much, the logic given
by him is not graspable by us.

Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi -3


BCP & Vimshottari Dasa
By
Saptarishis Astrology
Language Editor: Andree Leclerc, Canada

I
t’s been long since we wrote on Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi (Bhrighu
Circle System) and our attention has been dragged into the BSPs
(Bhrighu Saral Paddathi). In Saptarishis Nadi Gemini Lagna Chart 6
commentary, we introduced a system of using BCP and Vimshottari Dasa.
There are many variations of it; the Late Shri Narendra Desai1 wrote on one
of them many years back and we will try to write on it at a future point.
Technique:
1. Take the year of native, note it down mentally and
2. Observe where the Mahadasa lord is sitting
3. Then rotate the year noted as per BCP keeping Vimshottari Mahadasa lord as the Asc.
4. The house obtained & its lord will give clue as to what is going to happen in that particular
year.

1
Our efforts to bring out his work has failed so far in spite of high costs incurred and now only one lady
is left who can help us in that effort. May Shri Desai’s soul bring it out via her. Americans who tasted
the greatness of this man with whom the Rishis would communicate owe it to us Indians, and also to
the Astrological community to bring out the greatness of this master whom Indians ignored and the
young ones do not bother to find out.

650
This can be termed as over romanticization of a technique too.
Chart 1: John F Kennedy
Take chart of John F Kennedy (Vi Asc) who died on 22nd Nov 1963 in his 47th
year during Jup MD. Taking Jupiter as Asc, the 47th year will be the 11th house
from it, which means that Jupiter, who is placed in the 9H will activate, as per
BCP, the 7H of the chart.

BCP
A8 Vim
Focus
Yr

The 7H is a maraca house. Its lord Jupiter becomes badhakesh & maraca
lord & is also 4L of vehicles and assasination. So, such a Jupiter is sitting in
Vimshottari Jup Asc with 12L Sun along with Venus who is the 3 & 8th lord of
D6 (enemies chart) and 3L of short travel of D6. So something while
travelling can happen to his life and his wife and children can be with him
(Jup karaka for children and 7L of wife). He died while on a short trip in that
year.

Master Key:
Take the BCP- Vim Focus Year as the central Point for a second. From there,
the 11H contains A8 (death) whose lord is Saturn; Saturn is also the 12th lord
from BCP Vim Focus Year, so if by ‘any chance’ within that 47th year when
the BCP Vim Focus year is in the 7H, if Saturn AD comes in with this Jupiter
MD, this Saturn will be triply activated to give result of exit and accident.
Note that Saturn is in the 3rd house of short trips from MD Jupiter and on 22nd
Nov 1963, a month prior to his death, Saturn AD started in the Jupiter MD

651
getting triply activated and he died while on a short trip. The issue is always
who is getting activated and how much.

Chart 2: Marilyn Monroe

If you speak of Kennedy, one remembers Monroe and vice versa. Let us
examine the 37th year of the native, the date being 5th Aug 1962. During that
period she was running Jupiter MD. Now take Jupiter as Asc and the 37th
year, rotate it as per BCP and you will get the BCP Focus year in the 1H of
Jupiter Asc itself – which happens to be the 8H of the natal chart, the house of
death/longevity. The 8L goes in the 4H of home & assasination & its co-lord
becomes Rahu the cause of mysterious deaths and drugs who sits in the 12H of
exit. Now get the cue: further in the 8H you have the 6L of doctors and
accidents Jupiter sitting with the 5L of addictions Mars – this Jupiter Mars is a
yoga so something should happen when Jupiter MD & Mars AD is running;
incidentally, she died on 5th Aug 1962 when Jup/Mars had just started. See the
beauty of this technique though its not necessary everytime it should happen
so dramatically. With this Vimshottari BCP Combine, one gets more accurate
hints to determine how the Vimshottari Dasa is deciphering the results.

BCP

In the above chart Lagna lord Moon is in the 7H so some will say that Dwi-
saptati sama dasa is applicable.

652
Dwi-saptati sama dasa (applicable if lagna lord is in 7th or 7th lord is in
lagna):
On date of her death, 5th Aug 1962 Sun MD:/Moon AD/ Sun PD: 1962-07-16
- 1962-09-05. Sun is the MD, so take that as the Asc and rotate BCP years to
37th year which would be the Asc itself since this is where Sun is placed.
Incidentally, Sun disposits Gulika (poison) – note this clue – and Sun is
conjoined with Mer who is the 12L of exit: she died during this dasa in her 37th
year and Moon was the AD who is lagna lord (body) with Sun again as the
PD.
Chart 3: Obama

He was running Jup MD when he won the Election and became President on
20 Jan 2009 which was his 48th year. Now take Jup as lagna and 48th year
would be the 12H; the lord of it is again Jupiter sitting in the Lagna (a trikona
and kendra) with Saturn forming a Rajayoga: he became a Raja (King) by
defeating someone (since Jup is debilitated and getting neechabhanga raja
yoga) and Saturn is involved in Sasa Mahapurusha Yoga.

How to Really See this

T he difference between a predictor and a theoretician is how they apply


the same technique: the predictor reads theory or articles and looks at
it differently – he sees what the author has not written or how he has
not presented and how to really use a technique in prediction. First he will
identify the yoga in a chart, e.g. in above he would note the powerful

653
Neechabhanga Raja Yoga that too in the lagna of Obama and then he will
note that Sasa Mahapurusha Yoga in the chart caused by Saturn but he will
quickly see the other karaka of Masses Moon and note that it is in the 5H of
power. Then he will use the BCP Vim Dasa Combine and see when this
Jupiter and Saturn both are activated and he would come to the conclusion
that 48, 49, 50 and 51 years from this Jupiter MD are activating both these
yogas. He will then strike Gold with his prediction with Jup MD Moon AD
power in hand. This author has spent time with writers / theoreticians and
has seen how they take a simple article and criticize it showing acceptable
logic (note acceptable) whereas the predictor in front of them also criticizes it
but goes back home and tells us how to use it. When we ask the predictor why
he did not correct the theoretician, he said if he does how will he (predictor)
make money.

Chart 4: Dr Raman

The legend of legends died on Dec 20, 1998, at the age of 87 when his Venus
MD had just started. 87th year would be as per BCP in the 3rd House. So take
Venus as Asc and the 3rd from it will be the 9H of Libra. Since Libra’s lord is
Venus, we come back to Venus Asc making it a double strong year – note
this. Then this Venus Asc who has got doubly activated in the 87th year is
being conjoined with 8L of death Mer and 3L of death Mars. The BCP Vim
Combine Lord Venus of 87th year is also the 4L of heart and he died of heart
disease as his grandson had told us.

654
Chart 5: R Teachers SIL

Currently the native is in her 40th year and is running Jupiter MD. So taking
Jup as Asc, the 40th year will be 4H of house: she is right now trying to split
up from her house and the 4L Saturn sits in the 7H of marriage so something
should happen to her when Jupiter MD is running during her 40th year. She
has approached the police station and filed case against her husband and put
some case of domestic violence which is non-bailable.

Chart 6: R Teacher

The native is currently in her 56th year running Saturn MD

Sat MD/Moon AD: 2008-12-08 - 2010-07-09

So take Saturn as Asc and rotate as per BCP the 56th year which would be 8th
house of death from Saturn as Asc. In the 8th from Saturn sits Ketu which
signifies someone’s death and change of life; Ketu’s dispositor is Mer who is
also the 4L of mother sitting in the 5H of children with Saturn, the MD lord,
thereby making it doubly powerful.

655
So in the 56th year taking Saturn Dasa into account, we can expect something
to do with children, mother and change of life incidents; by the way, during
Saturn Moon, her mother expired in the 56th year, her daughter went through
lot of mental (Mer) problems and she was recommended 1008 recitation of
Vishnu Sahasranaam which she got done at the Narasimha wadi, the siddha
kshetra of Lord Dattatreya, after which her daughter became better and passed
her board exams.

Chart 7: Sex Scandal Of Bill Clinton

Haven’t worked on the time of birth of Mr. Clinton as his birth time has been
the debate of astrologers; have therefore above taken the time of birth as per
ADB which gives only an A rating http://www.astro.com/astro-
databank/Clinton,_Bill

A8 A3
A3

A8

656
News of the scandal first broke on January 17, 1998, on the Drudge Report
website, which reported that Newsweek editors were sitting on a story by
investigative reporter Michael Isikoff exposing the affair. The story broke in
the mainstream press on January 21 in The Washington Post. Said story
swirled for several days and, despite swift denials from Clinton, the clamor
for answers from the White House grew louder.

He was running Jupiter MD on Jan 21st 1998 (52nd year) when the scandal
broke out, so take Jupiter as Asc and rotate BCP to 52nd year which will be the
4th from it that is the 5H of one’s reputation & ones name aspected by Saturn
(troubles – peeda) who is 6L of court cases. He went into court in a way. The
next year that is after Aug would be the 53rd year of A8 (scandals) and court
cases again. Now take 52nd year from Jup which is the 5H as the Asc, see 5th
from it is ones name for that year and it has Rahu (sex scandals) and AL
(ones name), so some scandals will come out is what can be seen in the 52nd
year.

Another unique way we have discovered is to just create an Arudha Chart


with MD or AD Planet as lagna and see the result of the Mahadasa vis-à-vis
it. To explain

a) See arudhas from natal Asc


b) Construct arudhas keeping the MD or AD lord as the Asc

Part A:

1)Jupiter is Asc being MD lord, 5th house from it denotes ones name and fame
and over there A8 (sex scandals) of natal chart is placed in the 6H of debts and
court cases, so that will be the flavor of the Jupiter MD which is what
happened in Clintons Case.

2) The 8H is the house of darkness, sex is something that you do in the dark,
for those who are into something sinister or un social in terms of sex need to
be careful whenever Rahu is in the 8th from the Dasa Planet, here Rahu is in
the 8th from Jupiter the MD. AL being in the 8th from Mahadasa lord is bad
especially if it is with malefics or scandal causing graha like Rahu. Here 8th
from MD lord Jupiter is Rahu with AL, UL and A7 and worst Uranus (it will
rock the world), which is what happened in Jupiter MD this sex scandal
rocked the world.

657
Part B:
1) Jupiter is Asc, now computing arudhas from this Asc, the AL goes in the
12H of sex and expenses and exit, over there a prakashit graha (giving
light) Sun is placed so these sex exploits will come out and spoil ones
name (AL). You can note that during Sun AD within Jupiter MD on 21
Jan 1998 the scandal broke out in the open (just like Sun’s rays shine
out).
2) The Upapada shows ones 12th house matters (very generally speaking)
and taking Jupiter as Asc the Upapada of the 12H of Virgo will be
Taurus where original UL is also placed with Rahu and this occurs in the
8th from Jupiter MD lord thus causing major harm to the dasa.

Chart 8: Volunteer and Writer for Saptarishis Astrology

In May 2010, he would be running his 42nd year and he is running Jup MD.
Taking Jupiter as Asc, the 42nd year would come to the 6th (job) from it which
is the 4H of Throne bringing us to the sign of Capricorn. Its lord Saturn sits
in the 7H of limelight, whose dispositor Mars sits in 10 H of career and
aspects the BCP Vim Combine House here which is the 4H. So one can
deduce that in the 42nd year, something concerning his career can happen and
he can get a significant post due to it. Native is a govt servant and has had
double postings in the 42nd year and given independent office to administer.
He wrote:

Dear …..,

Your prediction has come true. You said that mars is getting activated in my chart on
26-04-2010 and i may expect some change in my job. It so happened that on last

658
Saturday i was shifted to a more responsible post from the earlier one. Previously i
was to monitor 5 people now i have to monitor 20 people and which is in the limelight.

Although our prediction was off by some 15 days, it is still to be noted that we
had used BCP Part 2 and Jay Weiss Excel sheet on it which is available in our
download section under Misc Downloads. One must observe that BCP Part 2
is rarely to be used in practice due to various vedhas and transits phenomenon
that all of us are not masters of.

The above technique is just a part technique and readers are requested to
aggressively test it and fine tune it further.

We offer it to the holy feet of Lord Ganapati & Sage Bhrighu who is most
merciful and the finest of astrologers ever.

Graha Sutra Series – Mars Reveals
By
Saptarishis Astrology
Readership Level: Basic To Advanced

O ne can, if one is honest to oneself observe after spending 50-60 years


in astrology that somewhere down the line we have missed the basics
and our understanding of grahas, rasis and houses is grossly
incomplete. This is not meant as an insult to our current senior astrologers or
of yesteryears but as a plea that Jyotish is such an ocean that even basics are
not learnt in several life times and the Grahas ‘keep on subtly modifying their
own results’ which is hinted by Parasara Rishi in the first two chapters of
BPHS. It is this writers humble submission that if he is able to understand 10
% of the basics of planets in this life, forget houses, signs, dasas and
divisionals, he would have feel it is the greatest achievement for him. This is
again a Mota Mota Technique (Broad Technique) and should be used
diligently considering ‘other modifying factors’ which comes with experience
and at the same time many of this modifying factors are still unknown to us
all. Astrologers below 20 years of experience & sound knowledge of various
classics are requested to be very careful using such broad thumb rules to
predict.
With Obeisance to Lord Ganapati, to beloved Mars who is the
Controller of Earth and all activities on Earth including the life of
Underground Earth, whose role in longevity is not known to us all .We
submit this technique at the holy feet of Sage Bhrighu, the founder of

660

dedicated to our team member Rushikesh Deshpande in whose presence it was
re-remembered and thus he became lucky for us in bringing it back from
memory otherwise this technique was forgotten.

Graha Sutra Series – Mars Reveals

Mangal (Mars) - says ‘The house where I am given shelter where I can, I repeat I
can & not will (100 %) contribute to the following

a) Marriage life of ‘One’ of the relative represented by that house will be spoilt or
challenged or difficulty in getting married.
b) Dowry taken or given by that relative or used as a tool to score points/revenge
c) Some evil done in respect to money by that relative i.e. tax evaded or unethical
means of money possession.
d) Some aspect of that house will be hidden and possibility of it to come out in the
open later
e) That relative can also have sexual disfunctionality/abnormality/obsession.
f) Chronic diseases or bad end to life.

He further says ‘Ofcourse all this will depend and heightened/modified if I am in my


friend’s house or enemies house and if I am under influence (aspect) of enemies or
krura (harsh) grahas or position in Vargas’.

We humbly request pardon & forgiveness if our(SA’s) interpretation of the above


rules are incorrect, but what is important is to test it out and all are requested to test it
and send us feedback only on charts whose complete life story they know and the chart
owner has crossed 70-80 years of age. Sometimes a technique works on 20-25 charts
and astrologers tend to believe & propagate it is a thumb rule even if the original
author did not intend it to be so. This technique even if it works on 30 charts one must
be careful and use it with maturity, as is the case with every BSP methods, the
important point is not predicting with BSPs but to know that BSPs help in
understanding what the grahas are doing in a chart. Every rule in jyotish has riders
and is not clearly known to most of us and it is the case even with this rule is what is
noticed by us. It is felt that the 3rd from this Mars is very decisive.

Our reading is limited and hence others might have mentioned it before us but we feel that
this is the first time a clue on the graha for dowry has come out, a specific study is on right
now on dowry cases which show direct relation of Mars in 12 cases and indirect relation of
Mars. These findings will be presented in the coming issues.

661
Chart 1

Mars is placed in the 10H in sign Virgo, now 1oH is house of father or wife’s
mother. The native is unmarried as he is only 26 so he was asked how is the
married life of his uncles/relatives children since 6H is relatives & uncles and
5th from there would be the children of relatives and uncles. The chart holder
instantly replied that their marriage life is in ruins. He said his uncles elder
child is a girl who married out of the community (not accepted in India still
inspite of our progress) and she married a drunkard who died at a very early
age and had a terrible marriage life and later she married again and is happy.

Then the 2nd child of the uncle is a male who married again out of the
community and became a drunkard and did all things which are not
acceptable in decent society, he then divorced the woman and got killed at a very
young age in a vehicular accident. You can additionally note that Mars is in
the sign of Virgo which is the 6H of accidents and divorce and thus has also
given the results more strongly apart from what the BSP rule implies. In
conclusion as per the rule the marriage life of the relative denoted by the
house should be spoilt and it is so in this chart.

One should note that this event could not have happened and hence the
other relatives or relation of that house with respect to other relatives must be
looked for e.g. in the above chart Mars is in 10H which is the 8H from the 3rd
house of brothers, his elder brother is not getting married and tensions abound
in his family due to this, why 8H since it shows the Soubhagya of marriage as
per traditional astrology, which means in poor translation easy happiness out

662
of marriage or easily gain of marriage, in this case there is difficulty in gain of
marriage of the brother as translated for this chart.
Chart 2

The chart belongs to one of the most innocent souls we have ever met. This
reading was done on the phone and the native was asked where his Mars is
sitting and he said in the 12H so we asked him how is state of affairs of
marriage life of his father’s siblings/brothers, he retorted instantly & with
sharpness that it was in ruins. You can see that 10H and 9H both show father
and 3rd from 10th shows the brothers of father. Later that evening we called
him again and asked the full story he said his father’s brother has not seen his
wife for 12 years, they live separate.

Chart 3

Mars is in the 9H of father placed in an enemy sign aspected by Saturn.


He was asked if the marriage life of his father was in ruins and of that of his
wife’s siblings/brothers. Native reported back that marriage life of his father

663
was not smooth at all. 9H shows wife’s brother i.e. native’s brother in law and
placement of Mars ‘in enemy sign aspected by Saturn’ shows his bro in law will
not have good marriage. His bro in laws marriage was in ruins by the time
native got engaged & he had already separated from his wife and was going
through a legal divorce which is now completed, thus the Mars BSP 16 rule is
working in this chart.
You can see 9H is the 3rd from the 7H of wife thus showing brother in
law, one must note that the oft mistake committed so far by astrologers in our
humble view is they take 3H for younger siblings and 11H for elder siblings which in
our humble view should be 3H is ‘total/all’ siblings and when one has to fine tune it
then you split up 3H for younger and 11H for elder, this was repeated in the last issue
editorial of Vol 7 Dec 2009. In this case as correctly pointed out the case of
marriage ruins was of elder brother as 9H shows all siblings of wife in general.
One can also note at the start of this article that Mars says the house where he
sits can show the relative doing “gadbad” (wrong things) in money or money
through dowry. This Mars is in the 9H of wife’s brother and for the wedding
ceremony he took several lakhs of money from his wife’s parents to spend on
the ceremony without putting any money from his end for the ceremony, this
indirectly means dowry and is a smart way adopted by today’s generation
especially since dowry is a legal offence. After the divorce the elder brother
had to pay back that money to the wife as per court orders thus proving the
sayings of Lord Mars as stated at the start of the article. Lord Mars also says
chronic diseases to the relative of that house, both the father and brother in
law suffers from chronic diseases, father suffers from atleast 6 chronic
diseases since 25 years and brother in law suffers from chronic back pain since
many years inspite of leading a healthy life style.

Now in certain charts all the above need not be applicable for example there can
be no brother to ones wife, then search for other relatives. Lets take the above chart
where Mars is in the 9H it shows the marriage life of his brother, as it is the
7th from 3rd house of brother and shows the wife of his brother, their marriage
life is not smooth and full of fights, thus exhibiting this rule of Lord Mars.

Chart 4

The chart belongs to a team member from North America, we asked her if
‘Do u have elder siblings or uncles that is fathers brothers, if so how is their marriage
life (bad in ruins i mean)

664
Her reply: If you are talking about my dad's brother he had a good marriage
until the death of his wife when he was 89 years old. My older brother has
been married 4 times and seems happy now....but the story isn't over because he
hasn't died yet. ha ha. He does drink a lot and smoke a lot and he is 61 so who
knows. My brother just gets bored with his wives and has affairs and moves
to the next one. He usually has wonderful wives, very nice except for this
last on that keeps us all away from him.
As you can see Mars is sitting in the house of elder brother and one relative’s
marriage is spoilt.

Chart 5

Here Mars is placed in the 10H of father, so we asked the team member whose
partners chart this as to ‘How was the married of his father, bad ?’
Her reply was ‘From what J.... tells me his mother was awful and took to her bed all
the time and was mad at his dad all the time also.’

665
Chart 6

In the chart above Mars is in the 2H of family. The natives marriage is ok-ok
with the husband becoming obedient to wife and does all chores of wife, the
woman has indicated to husband that she married him for his money. The
issue is as the above case of husbands becoming slaves of wife’s is common in
70% of households it cannot be termed as a failed marriage. So look at Mars in
the 2H of family and native was asked in one’s own family was 2 peoples
marriage spoilt, she replied her parents’ marriage was terrible (described
history which cannot be printed here) and her elder brother’s marriage was
divorced after 1 month of marriage. Note Mars is in Saturn’s sign.

Chart 7

666
4h shows ones mother and one’s own home life (also one’s own marriage life)
and also many other things, this native is in her early teens. Mars is in the 4H
of mother and this Mars is in the sign of enemy this be noted. Her mother
married a man who already had a son from previous marriage due to not to be
mentioned circumstances, would not like to comment on their marriage life
and the girls home life is only filled with fights from morning to evening.
They had 6 properties and now all is sold due to dwindling fortune and her
mother’s step son has filed court case against them wanting all of whatever
property is remaining.

Chart 8

Mars is placed in the 9H aspected by his enemy Saturn. 9H shows the legality
of your marriage as it is the house of dharma and normally marriage done as
per rites is a legal marriage in any society. Thus it shows ones marriage. Now
if one does not know the nature of married life or chronic diseases of a relative
of a chart holder, then one can see where this Mars is placed from Lagna, in
this case it shows 9H of dharmic marriage or as per existing rules of one’s
society. It has been the observation of scribe that 9H Mars also shows some
trouble in marriage or it can even show the legal-ness of one’s marriage or if
ones marriage is following the dharmic pattern of society. In the above chart
the Mars is placed in the 9H of marriage and the natives own marriage has
undergone trouble and the natives wife recently filed a case against him and
his parents for domestic violence thus showing that the marriage has gone for
a toss and exhibiting the rules of this BSP technique.

667
When using any traditional method one must always remember the
either or principle, if one point is not spoilt then another would be and that is
how the situation in the chart is to be judged before venturing out predictions,
hence an astrologer at times of making fast predictions is forced to ask some
queries and then he arrives at the conclusion. At the same time when it comes
to marriage area never should one work on the marriages of Indians or their
relatives since being a conservative society the whole truth of their marriage
is never revealed unless the full story is too evident to be hidden from society.
A broad and general thing observed by us is at times, pls note at times
Mars in the 9H can give a live in relationship or not so ideal marriage, it’s still
a slight deviation from the above rule.

Chart 9

Mars is placed in debilitation in the 11H which is 3rd from the 9th house of
father. The native’s fathers 4 brothers and sisters were unmarried inspite of
great wealth and education and 1 of them suffered from mental problems right
from early age (chronic disease given in BSP 16 rule) and another suffers from
rheumatism and other various diseases. From the above it is evident that the
siblings of his fathers have had ruined marriage areas. As the Mars is in
debilitation in the 11H of wife in the case of the native itself (BPHS Chapter
12 Shloka 12) this native was asked how his own marriage life is, he had a
pitiful look on his face and said there are certain areas of life which if one
images does not exist then one’s life becomes easy so why even speak about it
thereby giving it existence.

668
For long we have posted on our website and on forums for cases of dowry which
is a menace to India and so many suffer due to it, one takes or gives dowry in one
lifetime and in the next he is made to suffer due to karma cycle, this goes on and on.
The astrologers & spiritualists who are responsible for cleaning up of karma of a
society have failed here in India & that is a unwritten truth as dowry is still existent
in India displaying our pseudo spirituality and religiousness. After writing the above
article we searched in our database for dowry cases and found only 15 charts. Two are
presented below.

One can note that Mars is in the 9H it shows the marriage life of one brothers
and sisters as it is the 7th from the 3rd house and obviously it shows the spouse
of one’s siblings. As per the Bhrighu Saral Paddathi (Bhrighu Easy
Methodology) rule of BSP 16 b) which was pointed out at the start of the
article it indicates dowry taken or given by the relative indicated by that
house. Here Mars is in the 9H of sister’s husband and as per the mail posted
in Jyotish Remedies he has taken dowry.

What is of prime importance here for astrologers is this is not the ‘Only’ way to
see dowry but maybe it could be ‘one’ of the ways, as one must not forget that grahas
are extremely creative.

Chart 11: Dowry

670
Mars is in the 7H debilitated & with Saturn, 7H shows wife of the native.
This chart was provided by one of the volunteers Mrs Kundan Desai of
Mumbai and she wrote on this chart....

woman given dowry to above person


woman suffered alot.
he took away all her money, she was working,
even all the earnings were taken away by him.
he purchased house, with the help of bank loan.
he has one son, staying abroad,
he had bad habits of playing cards and loosing.
he was too much after money, and lady had to struggle a lot;
i think this will help you,
the girl tried to commit suicide, but saved.

Let us see where Mars is in the above chart holders wife. Does that Mars
indicates fights, harassment, is it in a house that indicates fights due to
marriage. Pls see chart below

You can see that Mars is in the 6H of fights, disputes, and divorces and also
in the sign of Virgo the natural 6H. The lady has suffered due to dowry as
Mars is in the 6H, thus showing the rule of BSP 16 b of Mars having relation
to dowry. It is not prudent and would be insensitive to comment here as to

671
why this lady is born with Mars in the 6H but readers are requested to see the
Vol 7 Editorial which had revealed the pending karma technique and use it in
the above chart to probably see Gods play.

Regarding dowry problems in charts of male or female a specific research is to be carried out and if
readers can send in charts to admin@saptarishisastrology.com regarding dowry where true incident is
known and not cases where someone is trying to punish someone and falsely implicating dowry cases.

BSP rule is where Rahu sits it gives
effects more in the 37th year of one’s
life for that house (at times) and its 9th
aspect implements itself in the 37th
year.

Sp. Note: When it comes to retrograde planets and especially Rahu always
remember that event can be round about and being retrograde event can
happen before or later than the appointed time. Basically it will not follow
any fixed rules.
Chart 1: Marilyn Monroe

Date: June 1, 1926


Time: 9:30:00 am
Time Zone: 8:00:00 (West of GMT)
Place: 118 W 14' 34", 34 N 03' 08"
Los Angeles, California, USA

37th year would be June 1962 to June 1963, Rahu is placed in the 12H of Exit and
it’s 9th aspect would fall in the 8H of death where 6L of disease/accident
Jupiter (Jeeva – Life) is placed, thus the scandal and mystery signification of
Rahu implemented itself in the 37th year of Marilyn Monroe’s life and she
reportedly died of a drug overdose on August 5, 1962.
Chart 2 : Dick Cheney
Date: January 30, 1941
Time: 7:30:00 pm
Time Zone: 6:00:00 (West of GMT)

674
Place: 96 W 40' 00", 40 N 48' 00"
Lincoln, Nebraska, USA

Richard Bruce "Dick" Cheney (born January 30, 1941) served as


the 46th Vice President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 under George.
He briefly served as Acting President of the United States on two occasions
during which Bush underwent medical procedures. His 37th year would be
from 30th Jan 1977 to 30th Jan 1978.
Rahu is sitting in the sign of Virgo which is the natural house of diseases, the
BSP rule says that where Rahu sits it implements itself in the 37th year and
Rahu is the karaka for smoking and drinking. Once a heavy smoker, Cheney
sustained the first of five heart attacks in 1978, at age 37.
Rahu is sitting in the 2H of administration and its 9th aspect would be on the
10H of career which would implement itself in the 37th year with some
important ‘administrative profession’ carrying the influence of 2H and Rahu to
it. ADB & Wikipedia gives that in 1978 (37th year), he was elected to the U.S.
House of Representatives from Wyoming, and subsequently reelected five times
and from which he was selected to be Secretary of Defense by George H. W.
Bush in 1989. As the date of his election in 1978 to the U.S House of

675
Representatives is not given in both ADB and Wikipedia it is assumed that it
might have been in 1978 but probably after Jan 1978, technically making it the
38th year (active year) thus this BSP rule is not working very soundly on this
chart though the difference would be only of few months which is possible
considering that transit influences might have delayed it & so on.
Chart 3: Alan Leo

Natal Chart
Date: August 7, 1860
Time: 5:49:00 am
Time Zone: 0:00:00 (West of GMT)
Place: 0 W 09' 00", 51 N 30' 00"
London, United Kingdom

Data given in his book "Esoteric Astrology." In his book, “The Progressed
Horoscope,” he published his chart with the word “approximately” after the
time. Rodden’s Ratings gives a B rating to the birth time.
37th year will be from Aug 1896 to Aug 1897, his Rahu sitting in the 6H aspects
the 2H of family life whose lord is Mercury, and also is the 11th lord of wife.
He married in 1896 (date not known), a relationship that was said to be
platonic. Although his time of birth is given a B rating and hence Navamsa

676
cannot be depended upon, for the sake of theory lets visit his Navamsa and
apply this BSP method of Rahus 9th aspect in the 37th year.

Rahu sits in the 12H and aspects the 8th house by his 9th aspect and there in the
8H one finds Mars the 7L of marriage, which is what happened to him in the
37th year. By seeing this combination one can broadly also say that there
would have been rise in his occult knowledge or gain of status in occult fields
after this event of marriage.

Chart 4: Volunteer

677
Chart belongs to one of our volunteers, Rahu sits in the 7H of marriage and 37th
year would be from May 2009 to May 2010. As per the BSP rule Rahu
implements itself in the 37th year where he sits, so you can find that as here Rahu
sits in the 7H of marriage he got married at this late age. Several stalwarts in
astrology had predicted his marriage with predictions ranging from 28th year
to 36th year except 2-3 astrologers. Rahu’s 9th aspect will implement itself in
the 3H where Moon is placed who is the 2nd lord of family life. A child was
also born to him in the 37th year of life thereby indicating gain of family. The
natives Navamsa is suspect but just for the sake of application procedures we
would use it.

If we use true nodes the Rahu goes in 6H whereas with mean nodes Rahu is in
the 7H with Moon, earlier you saw the connection of Rahu Moon and it is to
be noted that he got married in Moon AD. Coming back to Rahu it
implements itself in the 37th year and here in D9 it sits in the 7H of marriage
with Moon.

Chart 5: Volunteer of Saptarishis Astrology

Chart belongs to one of our volunteers, 37th year would be from Sept 2004 to
Sept 2005. Note here that Rahu sits in the 5H aspecting the 1H and the 1st lord
Mars goes in the 9H of father.

He was asked ‘37 year of ur life what happened re 1st house, 9th house and did it have
flavor of Rahu’ ?

678
His reply

if u r referring 2005 the 37th year, then in Feb 8, 2005, I lost my father and the same
year my wife business partner left her after doing some fraud regarding money in
April-May.

If you notice the 1H where Rahu aspects, would be the 7th house of business
and business partner from the 7H of wife. Thus Rahus flavor was
implemented by its 9th aspect and her business partner cheated her. The lord of
this 1H where Rahu is aspecting is disposited in the 9H of father so some
event can happen in the life of father.

Chart 6: John F Kennedy

679
American author, politician and the 35th U.S. President from 1961-63, the first
Catholic and the youngest man to win the nation's highest office. The 37th
year would be from May 1953 to May 1954. Rahu sits in the 4H of home life,
Rahus dispositor Jupiter who is the 7L of marriage goes into the 9H of a
Dharmic Event with Venus (woman). Rahus 9th aspect goes to the 12H where
Moon is placed who is the 11th lord of wife of D1 and also in D9 he is the 11L of
wife. Kennedy married Jacqueline Bouvier on 9/12/1953, 11:00 AM EDT,
Newport, RI which will be in the 37th year of his life. It is to be noted that
Rahu aspects J in Sarvatobhadra Chakra and his wife’s name is Jacqueline.

Chart 7: Another Volunteer of Saptarishis Astrology

Chart of another volunteer, Rahu is in the 6th house of job whose lord Jupiter
is in the 8th (of change) from 4H of residence. Rahus 9th aspect would be on
the 2H whose lord is Mars placed in Cancer in the 10H of one’s career, so an
event regarding his career can happen in his 37th year which would be from
Aug 2004 to Aug 2005. Native works in Defense and he had a transfer from
Visakhapatnam to Hyderabad.

Application on Divisional Charts

680
In his D60 this Rahu BSP technique can be applied, his Rahu is in the 12H its
9th aspect will fall in the 37th year in 8H of change whose lord Sun is in the 3H
of change of residence with Venus the 10th lord of career so he changed his
location to Hyderabad due to career.

Chart 8: Montgomery Clift

Natal Chart (ADB – rating “AA”)


Date: October 17, 1920
Time: 2:30:00 am
Time Zone: 6:00:00 (West of GMT)
Place: 95 W 56' 15", 41 N 15' 31"

Omaha, Nebraska, USA

681
Rahu the karaka of drugs & alcohol abuse sits in the 3H of travelling aspected by
4th Lord of vehicles co-lord Ketu, note this and also the fact that it is conjoined
with body lord Sun.

37th year is October 1956 to October 1957.


Rahu’s 9th aspect is in the 11th House which is the 8th (dangers) from the 4th
house of vehicle & chastity and in the sign of Gemini which signifies hands &
travelling.

Well known Hollywood actor and friend of Elizabeth Taylor (co-starred in


three films together including Raintree County in 1957). He crashed his car
into a telephone pole (communications Gemini) on May 12, 1956 (before the 37th
year) after he left the home of Elizabeth Taylor, leaving him disfigured (note
lagna lords involvement). The subsequent long months of recovery occurred
during the 37th year, which he did not handle well. As a result, his drinking
increased heavily (rahu) and he began stockpiling thousands of pills, both
legitimate and recreational. His substance abuse (rahu) and related relationship
problems plagued him until he died in 1966.

In the navamsa below, Rahu sits in the 8th House in Aquarius aspected by it’s
lord and 7th house lord, Saturn in the 6th (health) substantiating long term
health issues exacerbated by relationship issues. Rahu’s 9th aspect is the 4th
House wherein lies the Sun (health karaka) who is debilitated in 4th house of
vehicles. So in the 37th year he should be careful of vehicles and health.

682
Chart 9: Franklin Roosevelt

Natal Chart (ADB – rating “AA”)


Date: January 30, 1882
Time: 8:45:00 pm
Time Zone: 4:55:44 (West of GMT)
Place: 73 W 56' 01", 41 N 47' 05"
Hyde Park, New York, USA

37th year is January 1918 to January 1919.


Rahu’s 9th aspect is the 11th house (Cancer) whose ruler is in the 10th (Gemini)
with Mars (R). Natal Rahu is in the 3rd in Scorpio the natural 8th house of sex
scandals, note this & also the Aroodam of the 8th house. 3L Mars is karaka of
the 3rd as well as lord and sits in the 10H of career, so some major event in his
career should happen.

Life changing (and career changing) relationships were initiated and


developed. In 1918, Roosevelt visited Britain and France to inspect American
naval facilities and during this visit he met Winston Churchill, his future ally
in World War II, for the first time. Also, in 1918 (37th year), his wife Eleanor
learned that her husband was having an affair (rahu) with her secretary, Lucy
Mercer. Eleanor found letters revealing the affair in Roosevelt's luggage when
he returned from World War I. Their marriage survived, but in name only.

683
Note that Lucy was a secretary who is involved in typing and taking notes (3H matter
where Rahu sits) and Roosevelt’s wife discovered letters (again a 3rd H matter where
Rahu sits).

In the navamsa below, by Rahu’s 9th aspect to the 7th House of marriage and
relationship ruled by Moon who is in the 2nd house of family life, we see
confirmation for Lucy being his family. Note Rahu is karaka for cheating and
scandals and it has given the result by splitting up the marriage and family life
of the President.

Chart 10: Writer & Volunteer of Saptarishis Astrology

684
The chart belongs to one of Saptarishis Astrology’s team members. Her 37th
year would be from 13th March 1998 to 13th March 1999. An event happened in
her life on 9th March 1999 5 a.m which would be her 37th year of her life. Now
notice that Rahu sits in the 8H of death in the sign of Cancer which is the
Natural sign of Mother in the zodiac, get the hint. The 9th aspect of Rahu as
per this BSP rule will be on the 4th house of Mother, 4L Jupiter goes in the 12th
from it & in 4H sits Venus the 8th lord of death (from the 4H of mother). On
9th March 1999 her mother died in her 37th year thus showing the applicability of
the BSP Rahu’s 9th aspect rule.

The event happened to her parents so let’s check D-12 the chart for parents and
lineage.

Rahu sits in the 3H of exit of mother, being 12th from it and implements itself
in the 37th year thus giving heavenly passage to her mother in the 37th year.
For those who would want her Rahu to be in the 4th house of mother and go
about rectifying it, one can note that as per Shambu Hora Prakashika, mother is
attributed to 3rd house. Rahus 9th aspect would be on the 11th house which is the
8th from 4th house of
mother; this is 8th of death of mother which is what happened.

ThyExperiments Towards Truth
The Sex Scandal Experiment
By
Saptarishis Astrology
Copy Editor: Andree Leclerc, Canada

I
n the last issue we brought out an old manuscript on Jaimini called Jyotish
Phalaratnamala translated by Chandrashekhar Sharma – its series will
continue in coming volumes of Saptarishis Astrology. This work of Krishna
Mishra (probably 6th Century) remained unknown outside of Andhra Pradesh
and it was preserved within Andhra Pradesh by Jaimini astrologers mainly.
Astrologers outside this place did not hear of it or were never able to quote a single
verse from Phalaratnamala though this work is supposed to be from the Ujjain area
– and no further clarity was brought on it even though the author, Krishnamishra,
mentions King Vikramaditya. Many in Andhra Pradesh consider this work to be a
work on Jaimini Astrology but actually it is a ‘Complete Shastra In Itself’ containing
even Parasari Astrology and the verses in it just cannot be ignored. Some of these
verses are so rare that it is astounding to note that this work was hidden for so
many centuries with maximum one or two references to it.

Background

R ecently, when Tiger Woods came back into limelight, simultaneously this
verse from Phalaratnamala was thrown at our face – a new verse is like a
new born baby, all of us fall in love with the kid. This love enabled some
interesting observations and experiments to follow. These experiments are non
conclusive but aim at reaching the truth. It is being shared with others so that
someone cleverer and gifted among you can take it forward and further, most
importantly, share with everyone. If it misguides you we are sorry as these are only
‘Rough Notes’. May Mahatma Gandhi guide us in our experiments with truth.

Translation: In this manner should be seen good and bad results from position
of grahas. When Rahu is in 12th from dasha rasi he tends to destroy everything
(wealth and property).

The Sex Scandal Technique

Some Observations & Thoughts


a) Use Chara Dasa1 of Vemuri Shastry as propagated by K N Rao
b) Observe the Dasa or Antar Dasa (Main or Sub period) of Chara dasa
and if Rahu is placed 12th from it.
c) See if some scandals happened or loss of fame.
d) Same is the case if 8th from Dasa/AD sign there is Rahu
e) At the end of the day see this for defamation and some kind of loss of
money.
f) Do not predict with this technique for sex scandals since you have to
first use Yogas to find out if scandal is written in a chart or not.2
g) Use this technique to time it along with transits.
h) It has also been observed that AD or MD of sign containing Rahu also
brings in scandals
i) Same is the case if 8th from Dasa/AD sign there is Rahu

Common Sense Approach


Although some of the charts below show sex scandals, it does not mean that
for every sex scandal chart, the event would have happened when Rahu was in
the 8th from the dasa sign. Some ‘Other Combination’ would have been active.
One thing we learned from C S Patel is called the ‘Common Sense Approach’ as
often we find in forums and private conversations with astrologers that they

1 Here we have used Chara dasa, but ideally it should be the dasa best applicable for a
particular chart & situation. Next to Chara Dasa is what is recommended is
Padanaathamsa Dasa but we await software programmers to program Irangantiji’s
version and also Y. Krishna Rao’s version of Padanaathamsa Dasa so that one can test it
aggressively.
2 This is not meant for senior astrologers as it can be demeaning to them but meant for

the young ones who use a technique/dasa without checking yogas and predict fast. It
has been observed that in forums even senior astrologers forget this and behave like
young ones without checking yogas.

687
criticize the techniques of writers stating that so and so did not happen under
a given combination in an article. It is to be noted that some other
combination could have given the result as the Rishis have given various
combinations for a single event of life.

Unconditional Apology
Astrologers like journalists create bad karma ‘at times’ by using lives of people
like guinea pigs to sensationalize their articles. Using charts of bad periods of
people or celebs or their sex scandals is so easy with astrologers but when
someone else writes about the astrologer’s bad periods or scandals, astrologers
find it offensive. Our intention here in this or any other article of ours is not
to make judgement on anyone’s life or sexual habits or his bad periods – yet
we do apologize to the celebs whose charts are taken here as guinea pigs to
exhibit a technique. Only those who go through tough periods in life know
the feeling when they are talked about by others, astrologers forget this.

Chart 1: Tiger Woods

Chara dasa of K.N.Rao (modified version of a phalita rasi dasa):

Pi MD: 2002-12-30 - 2014-12-30


Sc AD: 2009-12-30 - 2010-12-30

Sc sign is in the 3H of one’s actions & unlocking of Karma, 12th from it


one would find Rahu in Libra, 12th from Dasa sign, this satisfies the verse of
Krishna Mishra and as per the above verse it should destroys one’s everything.
Also note here Rahu is in the 2nd House of one’s status and name and that’s

688
what happened in the case of Tiger Woods whose name was spoilt as he
became the joke of the sporting world when his sexual affairs came out more
intensely during the above Sc period. It started just few days before the Sc
period started when Li AD was ending which had Rahu in it and it coincided
with the Bhrighu Saral Paddathi Rule that Rahu implements its 7th aspect in the 34th
year and Ketu’s 7th aspect in the 34th year. Rahus (scandal) 7th aspect would be on
the 8H of sex scandals. It is reported that many companies dropped him from
their advertisements which has probably resulted in some monetary loss, not
sure as we do not follow news minutely.

On November 25, 2009, supermarket tabloid The National Enquirer published a


story claiming that Woods had an extramarital affair with nightclub manager Rachel
Uchitel, a claim she denied. The story began to attract media attention when Woods
had a car accident a day and a half later. He was leaving his home around 2:30 a.m. in
his SUV, a 2009 Cadillac Escalade, when he collided with a hedge, a fire hydrant, and
finally a tree down the street. Woods was treated for minor facial lacerations, and
cited for careless driving. He refused to speak to the police and the accident fanned
intense speculation for the following two days until he released a statement on his
website. He took blame for the crash, but said it was a private matter; he also praised
his wife Elin for getting him out of the car.
Woods announced a short time later that he would not play in or attend his own
charity golf tournament, the Chevron World Challenge (two weeks after
Thanksgiving), or any other remaining tournaments in 2009.
Interest in the story grew, until San Diego cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs publicly
claimed in the gossip magazine US Weekly that she had a two-and-a-half-year affair
with Woods.
After over a dozen women claimed in various media outlets that they had affairs
with Woods, media pressure increased. On December 11, he released another
statement, admitting to infidelity, offering another apology, and announcing an
indefinite hiatus from professional golf.

Chart 2: Bill Clinton

689
Chara dasa of K.N.Rao (modified version of a phalita rasi dasa):

Ar MD: 1997-08-18 - 2002-08-18

Antardasas in this MD:

Ta: 1997-08-18 - 1998-01-17


Ge: 1998-01-17 - 1998-06-19

The sign of Gemini is in the 10th house of profession and 12th from it there is
Taurus where Rahu is sitting, satisfying the verse of Krishna Misra and our
derivation that it can give sexual scandal or defame. You can read below and
notice that the Gemini antar dasa started on 17th Jan 1998 and exactly on the
same date the scandal broke out.

MonicaGate Scandal
News of the scandal first broke on January 17, 1998 on the Drudge
Report website, which reported that Newsweek editors were sitting on a story
by investigative reporter Michael Isikoff exposing the affair. The story broke
in the mainstream press on January 21 in The Washington Post. The story
swirled for several days and, despite swift denials from Clinton, the clamor
for answers from the White House grew louder.
During the deposition, Clinton was asked "Have you ever had sexual relations
with Monica Lewinsky, as that term is defined in Deposition Exhibit 1, as
modified by the Court?" The judge ordered that Clinton be given an
opportunity to review the agreed definition. Afterwards, based on the
definition created by the Independent Counsel's Office, Clinton answered "I
have never had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky." Clinton later stated
that he believed the agreed-upon definition of sexual relations excluded his
receiving oral sex.
President Clinton was held in contempt of court by judge Susan D. Webber
Wright. His license to practice law was suspended in Arkansas and later by
the United States Supreme Court. He was also fined $90,000 for giving false
testimony which was paid by a fund raised for his legal expenses.
Thus you can see that during this period he lost some money and also name
fame.

690
Chart 3: Woody Allen – Film Maker

American comedian, writer, actor and film director, screenwriter, playwright


and musician, gifted and appealing. He was the writer and director of the 1977
film "Annie Hall" which won four Oscars in 1978. On 4th August 1992 Woody
Allen was accused of Incest Perpetuation with his step daughter, please note that
he was running the Chara Dasa of Capricorn, 12th from it is Rahu placed in the
5H of children, she was his step daughter.

Chara dasa of K.N.Rao (modified version of a phalita rasi dasa):

Cp MD: 1983-12-01 - 1994-12-01


Pi AD: 1992-03-01 - 1993-01-30

The antardasa was of Pisces who is the sign of the 8H of sexual scandals; its
lord is Jupiter (children) who is also 5L and dispositor of Rahu.

Chart 4: Child Molester from Astro Data Bank

691
Child molester who was attracted to young teenagers and indicted in 1974 for
molesting his own daughter. When his wife reached the age 32, he lost sexual
interest in her. An alcoholic, he was drunk two-three nights a week.

Chara dasa of K.N.Rao (modified version of a phalita rasi dasa):

Cp MD: 1964-02-04 - 1976-02-03


Aq AD: 1974-02-03 - 1975-02-03

He seems to have been indicted in 1974 as per the above report of


AstroDataBank. It is presumed that it must have happened after Jan Feb of
1974 and this presumption is a fixology in a way due to the exact date of
indictment not given. Aq is the dasa rasi AD sign and 12th from it there is
Rahu placed thereby creating the defamation and scandal.

Chart 5: Michel Arth from Astro Data Bank – The Aspect Parameter

692
The more parameters used in any article, the more fixology can be done; the more
divisional charts or sign aspects you use the more fixology happens as per critics of
simple astrology and they are right, yet this case is presented keeping in view the
experiment attitude.
Belgian retired school teacher, living on an invalid’s pension and
astrology readings. He was interested in the occult and particularly, in black
magic. From 1978 to 1993 he raped, tortured, filmed and even lent to other
abusers, a young 12-year-old, her twin brother and their little sister - and this with
their parents’ knowledge and complicity! Arth was arrested on 12/13/1995 and
sentenced on 11/14/1996 to ten years in jail.

Now during 1995-96 he was running the Chara dasa of Aries. 12th from Aries
no Rahu is found but, if one uses sign aspects of Rishi Jaimini, Rahu and
Saturn sitting in the 8H of sex scandals aspect (carry their energy) to the sign
of Pisces which is the 5H of children (he did it with kids) and it is 12th from
the sign of Aries, the Dasa rasi.

Chara dasa of K.N.Rao (modified version of a phalita rasi dasa):

Ar MD: 1991-05-24 - 2002-05-23

693
Note that the Dasa was of Aries and in Navamsa, Rahu is in the 12th from
Aries in the 5th house of children, one may note that he raped tortured children
and also one may note that Navamsa is defined as ‘Fruits of One’s Life’ in
Bhuvan Deepika if we are not wrong.

For 5 years we have used D60 in our experiments as a lone chart and most of
the times it becomes much clearer in D 60.

D 60 of Arth Michel

A8
A8

694
For effectively using D 60, everyone claims that the time of birth should be
perfectly correct but, incidentally, that’s not totally true as we found out. See the
Dasa rasi under consideration is Aries and Rahu is placed 12th from it along
with A8 (sex scandals) thus giving him defamation during this period. It is
also aspected by Jupiter (karaka for children) from the 5H of children showing
his crimes against children. Please note in D60 nodes change instantly and in
this case go to the 2H if you take mean nodes. D 60 is the place where mean vs
true nodes can be easily tested. You need to decide yourself whether to use
true nodes or mean nodes. Also as we have repeated before, most of the time
there is no need to correct D60 yet most westerners land up spending
hundreds of dollars on getting their D 60 lagna corrected while Indian
Parampara astrologers are more than happy to receive these dollars.

Chart 6: Arnold Schwarzenegger

Allegations of sexual and personal misconduct

During his initial campaign for governor, allegations of sexual and personal
misconduct were raised against Schwarzenegger (dubbed Gropegate). Within
the last five days before the election, news reports appeared in the Los Angeles
Times recounting allegations of sexual misconduct from several individual
women, six of whom eventually came forward with their personal stories.
Three of the women claimed he had grabbed their breasts, a fourth said he
placed his hand under her skirt on her buttock. A fifth woman claimed
Schwarzenegger tried to take off her bathing suit in a hotel elevator, and the
last says he pulled her onto his lap and asked her about a particular sex act.
Schwarzenegger admitted that he has "behaved badly sometimes" and
apologized, but also stated that "a lot of [what] you see in the stories is not true".

695
This came after an interview in adult magazine Oui from 1977 surfaced, in
which Schwarzenegger discussed attending sexual orgies and using substances
such as marijuana. Schwarzenegger is shown smoking a marijuana joint after
winning Mr. Olympia in the 1975 documentary film Pumping Iron.
Not knowing the exact dates of the allegations but vaguely remembering it was
during the time of his election as Governor of California, just before this
event which happened on 17th Nov 2003, when he took oath. So around that
period the sexual allegations would have come out. Some search got us the
date of the scandal

October 2, 2003 (five days before the gubernatorial election) the LA Times ran the story and he issued
a subsequent apology. Here is a link for that story:

http://www.cnn. com/2003/ ALLPOLITICS/ 10/02/otsc. arnold.statement /index.html

Chara dasa of K.N.Rao (modified version of a phalita rasi dasa):

Li MD: 1996-07-29 - 2005-07-29

From Libra Mahadasa Rahu is in the 8th house as pointed out in Point (d) at the start
of this article.

After this article was written some friends and contacts chipped in with the
exact dates of the allegation. Let us use Chara Dasa in D 60, and see what
some astrologers had to write about the Mr. Schwarzenegger and, though it
might be gossip, it’s proper that we should not always write against celebs and
use their sex scandals in articles. We must also portray their good sides.

I kept running into Arnold, Maria and the children as I spent a lot of time in Santa Monica and
enjoyed his Schatzi restaurant (the whole family has riveting, beautiful blue eyes, in person). They
seemed really lovely. I was also friends with a lady who dated one of Arnold's buddies before he was
married. He had a colorful life, from what I understand. After he met Maria, his friend didn't
have Arnold to party with anymore. So, I honestly believe he had his bachelor days and then found a
new life with Maria. I'm sorry they had to endure a scandal with children. But then, if you're a
Kennedy child, I guess you understand how public life works.

Arnold married Maria on April 26, 1986, time unknown.

Astrologer

696
Chara dasa of K.N.Rao (modified version of a phalita rasi dasa):

Li MD/ Le AD: 2003-04-29 - 2004-01-28 (date of scandal is 2nd Oct 2003)


The 12th from it in D60 is empty for the Mahadasha is of Libra, but its lord
Mercury has gone with Rahu in the 11 H (true nodes), the AD period was of
Leo and 12th from it is Rahu satisfying our derivation of the verse of this
ancient Jaimini work called Jyotish Phalaratnamala of the Great Krishna
Mishra.

Chart 7: Chart posted on Forum

****
The complete picture is as follows.
My elder sister used to teach in a computer institute where she had fallen in
love with a fellow student, the affair as told by her started in 2005, and on 1st
2007,she got married in a run-away situation from her institute for few hours, with the
support of office colleagues, and returned back. We had no knowledge
about all this when a 3rd person informed us, and it was too late then. We were much
scared about the defamation in family, so we along with my sister and parents left the
city and moved to Bangalore. Her marriage was unregistered. Since 2007-till 2010 now,
we wished that she would change her mind. Reasons-the person she has married, we
have never met, nor talked.
Some astrologers at that time told us that it was a Tantric trap, by the group on my
sister, but the truth is that she is very much attached to the person.
We have no idea what to do, because marriage in such situations can be very
exploitative, because it was done in antisocial way. So currently since past 3 yrs, me my
sister and parents are all staying under one roof, unknowing what to do. There is a
complete criss-cross situation within the 4 of us.
Since the person she has chosen is not properly settled in education or
professionally it makes a tough choice to accept, just on basis of love, even we
do not know whether it is true from both sides.
Please guide, what exactly we can do because my parents are worried about my marriage
also, I am 31 now. They cannot do that also nor can I without the sister life getting
properly settled. No one would wish to marry in a family with such a
critical situation.
WE ARE LIVING A NOMADIC LIFE IN A DIFFERENT CITY, AS A TENANT,
THOUGH WE HAVE OUR OWN HOME BUT WE CANNOT GO THERE TOGETHER.
When will we return our home happily back again?
Best Regards
Ashish.

Namaskar.

698
Below happens to be the birth details of my elder sister. Her chart is an example of
secret Love Marriage in 2007, with disreputation in society after marriage. Also rejection
by our family, followed by separation distancing, the marriage happens to be a person of
very low status, in terms of caste and financial.

DOB 25 jan 1976.


TOB 2:35 am.
Place :Lucknow
Country:India.
KINDLY GUIDE WHAT STEP WE SHOULD TAKE, MORE THAN 3 YRS HAVE PASSED,
WITH NO DECISION.
WHOLE LOT OF TENSIONS IN FAMILY ARE BECAUSE OF ABOVE EVENT
best regards

Ashish .
Namaskar.

Marriage was 1st of February 2007 time around 12-2pm., Lucknow


We left city on 15 March 2007, 6:30 pm., Lucknow

****

In India brothers have to undergo lot of stress on account of their sisters whereas it is
not severe in western countries. During her marriage on 1st Feb 2007 Gemini MD of Chara
dasa was running.

Chara dasa of K.N.Rao (modified version of a phalita rasi dasa):

Ge: 2007-01-24 - 2014-01-24 (note the Gemini dasa just started and event happened)

The stress to the family on account of bad reputation is experienced from 2007 onwards
where Ge dasa is running, there is Mars in the 12th from Ge in Rasi chart and this does not
conform to the Krishna Mishra rule but if one observes the Navamsa which in India is
primarily considered for marriage, 12th from the sign of Gemini is Rahu placed with Venus
(Rahu Venus– scandal/disrepute in love). Thus the family is suffering due to Rahu being in
the 12th from Dasa Rasi Gemini.

Conclusion

A t times we have even found in other charts that Rahu is in the 2nd or 6th from dasa
sign or even 5th but that brings in more parameters and parametric astrology has
been rejected by practising astrologers in many circles hence it was not presented at
the start of this article.

ThyExperiments Towards Truth
The Essence Of Life Technique Or The Blue Lotus Technique
By
Saptarishis Astrology

W
ith obeisance to Late Shri C.S.Patel who was the first to
expound on the technique of Pushkar Navamsa in the last
century, we start with this experiment. There are many
techniques which show the snap shot of one’s life or Essence Of One’s Life, at
times what ‘A’ would consider as the Essence of ‘C’s life, would not be the
same as what B considers it. At the same time normally any great human
being would have minimum 3-4 areas of life or events which would later on
form the Essence of his life as viewed by outsiders and it might not be
similarly viewed by what he considers it. In this experiment we would use
Pushkar1 Navamsa signs on Ones Ascendant Sign and try to find out the
Essence of One’s Life. With this article we fulfill a soft promise given to one
SJC Guru from Africa few years ago when she had requested us to teach in
her forum something new on usage of Pushkar Navamsa due to our close
proximity to Patel Saheb. As every word given by a jyotish must be fulfilled
though it is practically not possible but the spirit must be there to fulfill every
word this article is dedicated to her in love of humanity. The following article
provides a brief hint to the young astrologer as to the areas of life which will
dominate out and to a clear cut tool to the ‘real’ astute astrologer.
Readers are requested to memorize the below table:-

Type Of Signs Signs Pushkar Navamsas


Fire Signs Aries, Leo, Sagi Li & Sg
Earthy Signs Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn Ta & Pi
Airy Signs Gemini, Libra, Aquarius Ta & Pi
Watery Signs Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces Cn & Vi

Readers are requested to kindly refer to the books of Late C S Patel to find out more on Pushkar
Navamsa.

700
The Essence Of Life Technique
Step 1: Note the sign of the Ascendant in any chart, take the sign and note its
Pushkar Navamsas, this would be 2 in number.
Step 2: These two signs which are the Pushkar Navamsas of the Asc, super
impose it on the Rasi Chart.
Step 3: These two houses will be called Pushkar Houses akin to ‘A Blue (rare)
Lotus that blooms in mud’.
Step 4: Pushkar House Lords if form ‘strong’ Yogas2 coupled with right dasas
form in giving this Essence of Life out as a glowing Lotus.
Step 5: These two signs & the houses it is placed in the Rasi chart will
dominate one’s life and/ or
Step 6: The lords of the two signs where the sits, with whom they conjoin or
get aspected will spring out the ‘Essence Of One’s Life’.
Initial Conclusion:
1. These Pushkar houses would be where maximum mud would be slung to you and
where you can finally emerge out as a Beautiful Lotus, this would be the Essence
that you take out of your Life.
2. Yogas need to activate at the same time when respective dasas of yoga concerned
planets are simultaneously active, this is rare and those who get it are the
destined ones.
3. Timing of when a particular yoga will get activated is hugely debated and so far
none have is a virgin area for study, dasas activating yogas is an old view and
works in practice but not 100 %. Years back when this question was posed by us
as to how to find out when yogas will become active, some paramparas came out
with a technique which can be marked as theories until it is properly statistically
investigated by unbiased scholars.
4. Further areas to be unearthed are Yoga Bhangas of which classics are silent in
most cases. These Yoga Bhangas (destruction of promised results of
combinations/yogas) are of minimum three types natal and of transit and dasas.
2
Yogas formed out of the Pushkara House Lords is most important and will show the essence of life.

701
E.g. a good yoga like Gajakeshari Yoga is to be active strongly at the age of 27,
33, 40 but if at that time a bad transit hits the Yoga giving planet like Moon or
Jupiter via Sade sati or Ashtham Rahu (8th Rahu) or if a functional malefic dasa
or yogini dasa is operative then results are delayed or denied and it would not
match with the below mentioned technique
5. Readers are requested to practice this over 25 charts of celebrities whose life
story is known to them and then practice this over 25 charts of commoners who
are 70 years old.
6. Are vedhas or bad transits blocking the results when the yogas of Pushkar
houses lords are active in dasas is something to be methodically researched.
7. Observe if at times Pushkar Houses or its Lord is indicating Profession of the
native, if so then it can be the easiest tool till date to give a clue on determining
profession.

Chart 1: Swami Vivekananda

There has been some recent controversy on his time of birth. Right now lets
follow what others follow. Rodden gives AA as ratings with notes as Modern
Astrology 11/1908, data from F.C. Dutt (great astrologer of earlier times) in
Calcutta who quotes B.R. (PC gives 6:45 AM as "recorded.")

Type Of Signs Signs Pushkar Navamsas


Fire Signs Aries, Leo, Sagi Li & Sg

702
Sagittarius Asc means Libra and Sagi are the Pushkar signs, in Sagi sits Sun
the 9L of religion and dharma and higher knowledge, this was the Essence of
his Life. In another Pushkar sign of Libra, sits a Pushkara House Lord Jupiter
which also signifies Gyan for which he became known. Pushkar House lord
Venus goes in the 2nd house of speech (remember his Parliament of World
Religions address) and 2nd house of administration, he formed the
Ramakrishna Math popularizing the teachings of his guru (again Jupiter &
5L).
Parliament of World's Religions
The Parliament of Religions opened on 11 September 1893 at the Art Institute
of Chicago. On this day Vivekananda gave his first brief address. He
represented India and Hinduism. Though initially nervous, he bowed
to Saraswati, the goddess of learning and began his speech with, "Sisters and
brothers of America!". To these words he got a standing ovation from a crowd
of seven thousand, which lasted for two minutes. When silence was restored
he began his address
Something should happen during his Pushkar House Lord Jupiter’s dasa
which ran from 1892 to 1906, the Parliament of World Religions Speech
happened on 11th Sept 1893, Chicago when he was running Jupiter MD &
Jupiter AD and he formed the Ramakrishna Math (1st May 1897 at Calcutta)
during Jupiter MD and Mercury AD (who is with Venus his other Pushkar
House Lord). A great yogi goes at a great time in a great way, he died during
his meditation when he was running Jup MD and Ven AD on 4th July 1902,
fulfilling his own prophecy that he would not live beyond 40 years. According
to his disciples, Brahmarandhra— the aperture in the crown of the
head must have been pierced when he
attained Mahasamadhi. The crown chakra is described as a
1000 petaled lotus. You will note that both Jupiter and
Venus are his Pushkar House Lords which is called the
Lotus Blooming, if you go by the concept of Mahasamadhi; Shri
Vivekananda’s lotus had bloomed completely on that day when he was
running Jup/Ven dasa.
Vimsottari Dasa:

703
Jup MD: 1892-06-13 - 1908-06-14
Antardasas in this MD:
Jup: 1892-06-13 - 1894-08-01
Merc: 1897-02-11 - 1899-05-20
Ven: 1900-04-26 - 1902-12-26
His Pushkara House Lords Jupiter and Venus are forming Tapaswi Yoga,
Sadhu Yoga, Rajayoga, Guru Mangala Yoga thus giving ‘real’ power to the
yoga.

The Asc rising is Aq, the Pushkar Navs of Aq would be Ta & Pisces, note the
houses it occupies in the natal chart which is the 2H of speech & 4H of Vidya
(education), note the planets sitting in it, the aspects on these houses and the
lords of these two houses. These Pushkar houses i.e. 2H & 4H would be where
maximum mud would be slung and where you can finally emerge out as a
Lotus, this would be the Essence of your Life. As to the 2H of family, money
and 4H of Education, the mud that was and is still slung on to Dr Raman, is
to be ignored by us and let us see how the Lotus blossomed. The 2H is the

704
house of speech where the karaka for ‘Rare Astrology’ Rahu sits, he made
stunning predictions that was noticed by the world and which gave him
prominence as its lord Jupiter (Pushkar House Lord) sits in the 10H of
achievements apart from being the 11th lord of Jyotish. It sits in the sign of Sc is
an additional benefit of bringing out rare astro knowledge.
The next Pushkar House is the 4H of education where exalted Moon and 12L of
previous life’s work Saturn is sitting, he removed a magazine that broke the
slavery of Parampara and gave that Vidya (4H) to the masses (Saturn Moon).
The lord of this Pushkar House Venus sits in the 7H of prominence. The
yogas formed by the lords of Pushkar Houses are of most significance, one
lord Jupiter forms the Gajakeshari Yoga, Saraswati and Kahala yoga and
Venus being a natural yogakaraka for Aq Asc is also involved in several
rajayogas apart from Dharma Karmadhitpati Yoga. As per the article of Shri
Ashok Upadhaya, for Airy Asc’s Pushkar Navamsas give the result of
Vipareet Raja Yogas, incidentally it is doubly fortified here that Moon &
Saturn (6th and 12th lord) form a VRY in the Pushkar House. People attribute
the success of Dr Raman to his Gajakeshari Yoga, Saraswati Yoga &
Vipareeta Raja Yoga, you can notice that all of this is being formed via
Pushkar House Lords whereas in other charts such yogas are hardly giving desired
results. Thus you can see the Essence of his Life played out via the Pushkar
Houses & Pushkar House Lords.
Chart 3: Barack Obama

705
Type Of Signs Signs Pushkar Navamsas
Earthy Signs Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn Ta & Pi

Obama is Cp Asc, so Ta & Pi becomes his Pushkar Houses and in the Rasi
chart it would be the 3H of communication and writing and 5H of power of
seat. Let us see the first Pushkar House, which is the 3H is the house of
writing, his books became super hit and influenced Americans, the Pushkar
House Lord is Jupiter debilitated but its debilitation is being cancelled by
Saturn who is forming a Sasa Mahapurusha Yoga. Everyone attributed his
rise to this Sasa Mahapurusha Yoga but you see it is very closely conjunct by
Jupiter who is the Pushkar House Lord. The next Pushkar house is Taurus
which is the 5H of power and Rajyaabhishek, over there sits an exalted Moon
but with Mandi Gulika which means it won’t come without a fight. Note the
2nd Pushkar House lord is Venus sitting in the 6H of competition and enemy.
An election is like a competition and observe the role of his two Pushkar lords
(Jupiter & Venus) and occupant of Pushkar house (exalted Moon) on 20th Jan
2009 in the scheme of Vimshottari.
Vimsottari Dasa:
Jup MD/Moon AD/Ven PD: 2008-12-09 - 2009-02-28
He was running Jup MD, Moon AD and Venus PD when he fought a
competition (Venus in 6H), sat on seat of power (highest office) and became
famous (Jupiter in lagna) and thus became the President of Unites States or
actually Lord of the Earth. All 3 have relation with Pushkar Houses and all 3
are also involved in several yogas like Sasa Mahapurusha Yoga, VRY &
Mountain Yoga (Parvata yoga)
Parvata "mountain" Yoga
The dispositor of the lagna lord is in its exaltation rasi or own rasi, and in an
angle or trine.
"Doing acts causing eternal benefit, one will have everlasting wealth and happiness,
and become the lord of the Earth."

- Taken from Ernst Wilhem’s Kala Software
http://www.saptarishisastrology.com/kalasoftware.php
Note the dasas and antardasas of Pushkar House Planets & Lords, they can give
the opportunity to ‘become a Lotus from the mud’, you will note that a lot of mud was
thrown on Obama regarding his nationality and other things during his Moon AD
(Pushkar House Occupant) and Jupiter MD (Pushkar House Lord). Also observe the
position of these Pushkar Houses & their Lords from the Dasa Sign.

Chart 4: Mahatma Gandhi

Type Of Signs Signs Pushkar Navamsas


Airy Signs Gemini, Libra, Aquarius Ta & Pi

When you think of Mahatma Gandhi what was the Essence of his life you
can come to the conclusion ‘non violent fight’ (6H) , leadership (1H), public
figure (7H) transformation (8H) into his life from Gandhi to Mahatma and
struggle for sex control (8H) . Summarizing it you get 6H, 8H which are his
Pushkar Houses and 1H, 7H where his Pushkar House Lords are placed
forming. The two Pushkar House for Libra Asc becomes Taurus and Pisces
which are the 6H and 8H and as per Ashok Upadhaya Vipareet Raja Yoga
becomes very important for Airy Asc (in our view as per our learning from
him it is more important for Libra Asc’s) and this is more the case with
Mahatma where you can see VRY playing full, which means someone’s
downfall and your success, which means the down fall of the British Empire

707
and rise of the Gandhi to become the Lotus called Mahatma. The Pushkar
House Lords Jupiter and Venus both are involved in several yogas (thereby
really giving power those yogas) like Malavya Mahapurusha Yoga (Great
man yoga loosely translated), Parvata Yoga, Gajakeshari Yoga, VRY, Guru
Mangala Yoga, Kalpadruma/ Parijata Yoga.
Vimsottari Dasa:
Jup MD: 1939-12-01 - 1955-12-01
Antardasas in this MD:
Ven: 1947-10-13 - 1950-06-13
His Jupiter Mahadasa ran during 1939 to 1955, Jupiter is the 6H of
fighting/disputes and placed in the 7H of public platform, it was during this
period he grew more and more stronger as an undisputed public figure even in
the west and he won the freedom for India in 1947, Jupiter as you would see is
his Pushkar House Lord.
During the Venus Antardasa of this Jupiter MD, he was assassinated (mud
slung on him) which created a huge uproar in India and the west as it was no
ordinary leader, as a leader like him was never before born who in turn had
inspired leaders around the world to create social movements. You would
notice that Venus is the Pushkar House Lord of the 8H of death. One should
observe in many charts the MD and subsequent AD in that MD of both
Pushkara House Lords and do further research on it. Observe the same
technique of Pushkara House Lords in the yogas of Shri K N Rao like
Gajakeshari Yoga, Malavaya, Hamsa, Parvata yogas etc and past and
immediate coming Pushkara House Lords dasas.
Often you would find that many yogas in the chart if linked to Pushkara
House Lords give fabulous strength to these yogas.

708
Chart 5: Indira Gandhi

Type Of Signs Signs Pushkar Navamsas


Watery Signs Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces Cn & Vi

For Indira Gandhis Cn Asc, the Pushkara Signs are Cn and Vi, one her Asc
itself and other 3H of communications, Vi is the sign of 6th House of enemies
and fights in the natural chart and she was well known to crush brutally her
opponents. Anyways quickly see the Pushkara Lords Moon and Mer, one sits
in the 7H of public platform and other sits in the 5H of power
(Rajyaabhishek) which is what the Essence of Her Life was. Note that both
these houses are signifying children and married life and at both these places
confirming to the Pushkar House Lord results mud was thrown at her
a) due to her married life and relations b) due to her son Sanjay Gandhi’s
supposedly notorious lifestyle.
She became P.M for the first time on 24th Jan 1966 (took office) when her Jup
MD (Jupiter aspects her Pushkar House lord Mer) and Sun AD (Sun is
conjunct Mer her Pushkar House Lord who is also involved in the VRY), this
ensured a 11 year run (something not seen these days in Indian Politics or
World Politics). Due to lack of space not mentioning the various yogas
formed, but note that Mercury is involved in Vipareeta Raja Yoga happening

709
in the 5H with Sun and Jupiter and Mercury is a Pushkara House Lord
making it doubly powerful and after the death of Morarji Desai, thus keeping
with the true spirit of VRY (Vipareeta Raja Yoga).
Then the 2nd time she took to the post of P.M it was on 14th Jan 1980 when she
was running Saturn/Ven/Saturn, you can see that Saturn sits in the Pushkar
House of Cancer aspected by its own lord Moon. In her whole dasa of Saturn
which started from 1970, the Iron Lady was formed and became a world
leader.
Before publishing an article Saptarishi team members/volunteers share
their understanding of it and exchange their experience of how that technique
has worked in their chart, and this can be time consuming. Often we use team
member’s/volunteers charts in published articles as this allows us to answer
queries about the technique when team members phone, or write to ask for
further clarification as to how to apply it on their charts.
Below is presented some team member’s charts with explanations in brief at
times in order to conserve space.

Chart 6: Canadian Core Team Member

710
For an Indian to study astrology in India he still has to go through a lot of
social stigma and most face problems in marriage as spouse do not agree to the
science, imagine how much it would be tough for a Westerner who has to
fight the religious dogma there in the West against astrology. Note the Asc is
Aries, the time of birth is a bit uncertain but still it remains Aries only. Now
use the Mud & Lotus Technique, for Aries the Pushkar houses would be Libra
and Sagittarius, in her case it would be 7H of marriage and 9H of children,
higher knowledge like Astrology. Now note the 7H Pushkar House Lord goes
in the 9H of higher knowledge and marriage and also the other Pushkar
House Lord Jupiter goes in the 1st house of self and it is also the house of
marriage of the ‘Spouse’. Jupiter signifying Higher Knowledge is combined
with Saturn who is 11th lord of Astrology and Saturn also signifies ancient
things and Astrology is an ancient higher knowledge sitting in the house of
marriage of spouse (1H). Thus mud would be slung in that house and she
wrote ‘my mother never accept my love for astrology.....my constant fight, my
children, my 1st husband that give me a choise, astrology or him, and of course i choose
astrology with all the problems later with children and special money problems for a
divorced woman... i pay until now a very very high price for Astrology’. The rest is
self explanatory like 9H of Sagi signifying higher knowledge which is the
Pushkar House is 6th (dislike) from the 4th house of mother & 8th from the 2nd
house placement of Moon (mother). Her mother does not appreciate daughter
doing astrology. 1965 onwards her Jupiter dasa started, she was absorbed in
astrology full dasa and Jupiter is Pushkar House Lord, this Jupiter is involved
in Dharma Karmadhipati Yoga (caused when 9L and 10L combine) in powerful
Kendra Trine House (1H is both). So doing astrology became her Dharma
(righteous action) and also Karma, so she made such a big decision of letting
go of her husband and not astrology since astrology is her Dharma and
Karma. She was the one who successfully predicted Obama’s victory months
in advance before even Hilary was not out of the race, this prediction was
done in an international magazine. The common Buddha Aditya Yoga (Sun
Mer combo) is found in her chart and is found in many hundreds of chart but
this lady is extremely intelligent and hard working, you give her one
technique, she would spend the full night and next day she has already super-
improvised that technique, so why is this Buddha Aditya Yoga so powerful in
her chart since it sits in a ‘Pushkar House of Higher Knowledge Sagi’. You give
her an article or Saptarishis Astrology magazine, she removes full print out
and takes it in her car, wherever she goes she reads, re-reads and reads, if she
is waiting at the doctors she is reading the magazine, and the best part is
inspite of so many successful predictions which we have privately observed
over the past 5 years she just does not exhibit an iota of ego, such kind of

711
dedication and egoless state is possible only when benevolence of Gods is
there and Gods is 9H which is her Pushkar House.
Chart 7: South Writer of Saptarishis Astrology

Observe Asc as Libra, so Ta and Pisces will be the Pushkar Houses, note it is
in the 6th and 8th houses. One of them contains Rahu the graha of Rare
Astrology and research, he spent so far only 5-7 years in astrology yet teaches
in ICAS (Dr Ramans Institute) and has produced some of the finest
researches in astrology which have been published in Saptarishis Astrology
and SA had the honor of introducing him as an author. This is the power of
not just his Rahu but of Rahu sitting in his Pushkar House. Now note the
Pushkar House Lords Venus and Jupiter are both conjoined in the 11H of
Astrology, so something spectacular should happen when his Jupiter dasa
starts, he wrote this ‘ my Jupiter dasha started somewhere during 2005. i started
teaching astrology some time during the mid of 2006. i received lots of encouragement
from the students as they liked my lectures. During the process i could refine my
knowledge in astrology. Which may be the result of the conjunction of the lords of 6, 8,
12 in my chart in 11th house.’
Vimsottari Dasa:
Maha Dasas:
Jup: 2005-01-23 - 2021-01-23
You can see that during his Jupiter dasa his articles were also published in
Saptarishis Astrology and people used to write to us asking us from where the
above author is getting BSP methods. In coming Venus AD and or Sun AD

712
one can expect a spectacular book from him. You can note the Yogas formed
by the Pushkar House Lords and see the greatness of it.
Chart 8: A Core Team Member

Type Of Signs Signs Pushkar Navamsas


Watery Signs Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces Cn & Vi

For Cancer Asc the Pushkar signs are Cancer and Virgo, in Cancer the 9L of
Dharma and Higher Knowledge sits and he is Jupiter doubly fortifying it and
now twice since it is a Pushkar House, the native is a sanskrit scholar,
astrologer and his father was a great astrologer, the native is very dharmic and
is into higher forms of mantra shastra and has performed free Yagyas for
people worldwide, this is the essence of his life as astrology and occult
sciences both dominate his life. His other Pushkar sign of Virgo contains
exalted Mercury (accounts) with Rahu (going deeper) and is with 2nd lord of
one’s profession who is Sun, so lets combine Mer, Rahu & Sun, the native
works in the Income Tax Dept and he is in accounts (Mer), unearthing things
(rahu) in a Govt job (Sun). That sums up the essence of his life Jyotish,
Higher Knowledge & Accounts.

Chart 9: Another Volunteer

713
Note Gemini Asc, so Ta and Pisces are the two Pushkar houses, Ta is
sitting in the 12H of charity containing the 9L of higher knowledge Saturn
who is also the 8L of occult, so this charity of knowledge must happen in the
form of Jyotish since Jupiter also aspects it by being placed as Pushkar House
Lord in the 8H of ‘Gupta Shastra’. Now who is Jupiter it is the lord of Pisces
(Karma being 10H), so this native contributed in giving in charity some
higher Jyotish knowledge. See the Pushkar House Lords, it is Venus sitting in
the 12H of spirituality and sex and Jupiter sitting in the 8H of occult,
spirituality and Jyotish studies dominate his life, charity of knowledge is the
Essence of his life, bringing rare knowledge out is his mission. Now see the
yogas, there is a Rajayoga in Venus Saturn, then RajaSambhandha in Jupiter
Saturn, Vipareeta RajaYoga with Venus Saturn, Venus in a Malavya Yoga
from Moon, all these mentioned planets are associated with Pushkar Houses
and Pushkar House Lords, thus doubly fortifying the yogas. So during Venus
or Jupiter dasas or antars these results will come out. Now Venus MD went
in childhood and Jupiter MD will be in his mid 50s by that time he won’t be
alive probably. Now during Venus AD in
Vimsottari Dasa:
Mars MD/Ven AD: 2007-12-06 - 2009-02-04
He did some major charity work with Jyotish and especially of Bhrighu
Astrology (note Venus in Malavya Yoga) and this Venus being involved in a
VRY, a major Jyotish Publication was closed down and this native out of no

714
choice of his own donated some Bhrighu manuscripts and Bhrighu articles to
the jyotish world. All this you can see what the Pushkar Venus has done,
other VRYs come and go but a Pushkar VRY we should not ignore though it
is tough to predict in one sec which particular Venus AD will give the
promise of the chart but probably experienced astrologers would be able to.
For example what was not mentioned is that Mars aspects this Venus Saturn
combo and during Transit Saturn the biggest planet in that combo was
aspecting both Saturn and Venus and Mars together. Saturn is called Kaala
(Time) and he triggers some say which probably he did right around the age
of 36 his natural age. Tr Jupiter was back in his natal position further
activating the Yoga & that’s when the Bhrigu knowledge hidden for centuries
was revealed. We asked him the stupid question if he practices any mantras
he said no, only once he prayed in English to the Sages.3
When natal yoga planets activate the yoga in transit and dasa of their respective
planets runs that’s when Destiny Strikes It Hardest.
You see the above transits, age of planets and then see if a Pushkar House Lords
dasa/antar dasa is about to start and you predict bang on, remember it is not an easy
task to combine all parameters without getting lost.
Chart 10: Volunteers Brother

3
The reason this line is written since many in the West are sold mantras & now in India
they are indirectly sold to gather sishyas (students) & thus indirectly attend courses.
Mantras do not guarantee revealing knowledge or success in predictions, clean heart to
help others is the only mantra. God or Sages understands all languages and not only
Sanskrit, the most Universal Language is feelings it generates vibrations more powerful
than anything.

715
Type Of Signs Signs Pushkar Navamsas
Watery Signs Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces Cn & Vi

On phone the volunteer was trying to understand how this technique works,
so he just mentioned the Asc of his brother, we said what are in Cn & Vi his
Pushkar Houses and where are its lords. Note that his Moon the 9L of Bhagya
(prosperity) and Pushkar House Lord goes in the 6H of health issues, we
asked him if his brother has an health issue or does he deal with health, he
replied that his brother has put up a medical shop (chemist) in his native place
and is now making Rs 50,000 per month which is a big amount of money. One
may note that subconsciously we knew that his brother was into something to
do with health since the volunteer has surely mentioned it in the last few
years and this is not a prediction). What is to be noted is that Pushkar House
Lord has given way to a profession as otherwise 9L in the 6H is termed a not
so great combination. His note afterwards via email is
My brother started medicine shop on 28 feb 2002 after running a hardware shop 5-6 years. But
actually he has rosed monetarily after starting medicine shop.
Before that his life was full of low and high not only in monetarily but other aspects also. Once he
was in clutch of very very bad habits and my family was very much disturbed due to his bad
habits.

Pushkar House Lord, Bhagya & Vimshottari Dasa


He started the shop on 28th Feb 2002 and his Moon PD started on 10th Feb 2002
Moon PD: 2002-02-10 - 2002-03-11
BCP, Pushkar House Lord & Bhagyodaya (Rise of Fortune)
The native’s birthdate is 7th Jan 1960, so on 28th Feb 2002 he has just finished
his 42nd year and just started his 43rd year. 42nd year means 6H as per BCP and
there the Pushkar House Lord of Fortune is sitting in the 6H of natural Badha
(Block/Obstacles). Thus he had to complete the Badha (Block) and his lagna
(self) got risen (7H) in the 43rd year.

Conclusion

I t is no doubt so easy to see the Essence of Life on blind charts but what is
also at times tougher is seeing it on known charts. Some examples follow
in micro brief. Take Leo Asc, Li & Sg Pushkar, in Libra suppose Ketu sits

716
then intuition, prediction, communications & computers is your Essence and
lets take retro Jupiter sits in Sagi then Higher Knowledge like Jyotish is the
Essence, if this Jupiter is debilitated in Vargas then you did not share in
previous life your knowledge so this knowledge will elude you once in your
life when you need it most (this is often the case with deb Jupiter). If this
Jupiter is in Sc in one of the vargas then its surely this Jupiter will be to do
with occult. One has to look at various divisions at times to arrive at micro
levels or just use intuition on Rasi chart and you can click it.

Further Thought
Any article in any book or magazine always lands up taking the most easily
applicable cases to demonstrate the efficacy of the technique but practical
applicability is lost due to the difference of young vs experienced astrologers
and also at the same time even an experienced astrologer is always biased in
his own chart especially if he has not written that article he rarely likes the
techniques of others and will often say it does not work on his chart.

Further Research Areas


a) Note the transits on Pushkar Houses
b) Note the transits on Pushkar House Lords
c) Note the SAV of Pushkar Houses or Lords
d) Note the AV of Pushkar House Lords
e) Observe if the two Pushkar Houses or Lords point to profession in an
easy manner as compared to other techniques of profession
determination.
f) Using Each House as Lagna but it can lead to forced complication or
over romantisization of the technique. Try atleast taking M.C as the
focal point in above technique.
g) Note the signs of the Pushkar Houses that you get in the natal chart
with Asc as the Focal Point as used in above article. Now take this Signs
in the Navamsa and see which planets in it and the lords of it. The
dasas, antardashas of them will become meaningful. E.g Obamas
Pushkar Houses signs are Ta & Pi in natal, put them in Navamsa, see

717
that Jupiter and Rahu sits there in exaltation rasi of Moon and its
dispositor Venus goes in the 5H of power. On 20th Jan 2009 when he
became the President he was running Jup MD/Moon AD/Ven PD. In the
chart of Michael Jackson the Pushkar Houses are Ta & Pi, take them to
Navamsa, its empty there, the lords Venus and Jupiter must be
observed. Venus the 3rd lord of singing and dancing is conjoined with
Saturn (his natal Asc lord) in the 12H of feet and international fame, he
attained international fame in his Saturn MD as a phenomenal singer
and performer. As mentioned in the article one need not shift to the
Navamsa always though Rasi & Navamsa are inseparable, quickly see
Elvis Presley has Sc Asc, so Cn & Vi, lord of Vi is Mer and in his Mer
AD he got his big break with release of his first album titled ‘Elvis
Presley’ which topped the Bill board charts, the album was released on
March 23rd 1956 when his Mer AD the Pushkar House Lord was running.
Obviously Mer will be the Pushkar House lord in the Navamsa also as
per above technique. Indira Gandhi has Cancer Asc, so its Pushkar
Houses signs are Cn & Vi, in Cancer sits Saturn and her Saturn dasa ran
from 1970 to 1989, that’s when she was made the King (example repeated
here). Rajiv Gandhi is Leo Asc, Li & Sg are his Pushkar Houses, their
lords Ven Jupiter combine together in Asc forming an incredible yoga,
no chance of him becoming PM and suddenly on 31st Oct 1984 as soon as
his Jupiter AD (Pushkar House lord) started he was crowned the king
(note the Pushkar house lords combine in Leo the King). Why using it
in Navamsa too is given here in Further Research Areas since by adding
10-12 examples it does not become a dictum, readers are requested to test
it aggressively and come up with a more defined methodology than what
we have done so.

Feedback Before Publishing Article


Dear SA
I follow your idea, I did for important moments in my life, i take a look the transit in the
Pushkar Houses and lords

i send you here only one that impress me, the day my son was born.( my 4th kid) the
doctor prognostics were very bad, they told me after the birth "he is not going to
survive". He was born with heart problems, jaundice, was premature and other little
things. He passed this cap, and today has 31 years old in very good health

I always ask myself how was possible that he survive. here i tell you here what i find.

718
my Pushkar houses are Libra and Sagg., the rulers Venus in sagg and Jupt, JU with Sat in
Aries -

transit for the Oct 7 1978 at 8.pm in Geneva Switzerland

Sun in Virgo where is my natal Ra, in the 12H of Libra.


Moon in Sagg, Ra in Virgo VE in Libra, Ma in Libra, JU in Cancer 11* and Sa in Leo.

Then Venus ruler of Libra in Libra, and Jupiter exalted in Cancer. Was not possible
something going wrong here, is a very positive transit.
Jupiter Dasha 1965-79

now is clear for me

thank you my friend to give me new stuff to learn

A fter mentor read this article (he was presented till Chart 5/6 only as
this was not complete), he said Pushkar has symbolism of the Blue
Lotus, Neela Kanti and the Vishnu Nabhi4, he said till date Pushkar
Navamsa was used only in Navamsa chart and now a deeper meaning giving
ones Mission and Crux of Life can be understood with this new technique, he
called it the Jyotish Nabhi.

4
Neela means Blue, then out of Lord Vishnu’s navel cord the Lotus came out on which sits Lord
Brahma and also Mahalakshmi Maa the consort of Lord Vishnu sits on a Lotus. It must also be clarified
here mentor and this scribe both do not subscribe to over romanticization of techniques which has
become the trend these days. As this scribe was a product of internet forums where some intellectuals
try to over parameterize and over romanticize astrology techniques in the name of brilliance this scribe
also has caught the improper habit and the above article can be deemed as over romantic technique. This
scribe on a personal level feels articles or techniques without quoting shlokas is un-shastriac and one
should not deviate from the classical approach in the name of research or being called a great researcher
unless that approach has been taught by a pure Guru.

ThyExperiments Towards Truth
The How Of Death – A Clue
By
Saptarishis Astrology
Copy Editor: Andree Leclerc, Canada

W
ith Obeisance to Lord Ganapathi, Lord Saturn and Bhrighu Maharaj, this
method is presented at the holy feet of Sage Sukracharya for him to accept and
bless it with longevity and most important workability. In ancient and not so
ancient India, the first job of an astrologer was to ascertain the longevity and
predict that as the first prediction. But this is no longer done as paramparas have failed in this
respect of longevity determination. Hence, the astute astrologer has not found a single
dependable technique inspite of thousands of researches done in astrology though one should
look at Dr. Raman’s clue on Dwadasamsa which is still not totally dependable as per his own
words, though we feel it is worth experimenting further. The next step was to predict how
death will happen. Usually in Nadi readings this can be found at the end of the prediction.
In this aspect, many also have written but, so far, one can’t remember a simple and
repeatable methodology in this regard. Few years back we had worked on a clue (not the one
on Dwadasamsa mentioned above) given by Late Dr B. V. Raman in his lecture given in
London, which was printed in one of his old issues – but the technique derived by us was
lengthy and cumbersome and now that technique is unfortunately forgotten & the article
was lost in PC formatting. After the advent & feedback on Bhrighu Saral Paddathi, the
mission of Saptarishis Astrology became more clearly to spread and bring out simpler
methods of prediction for simple minded astrologers so that they, like us, can use methods
effectively and not rely on ‘Romantic or Statistical Astrology’ both of which do not work with
accuracy in ‘real’ practice or are too cumbersome for any real benefit except impress
temporarily the scientific-mathematical-astrology oriented modern student who does not put
his head under the blade for each of his prediction but only tests an article on charts. Testing
parameters and real predictive capability of the technique are two entirely different things.

Should the How Death Will Happen Be Predicted

N
O, it should not be predicted but it becomes a vital tool to rectify charts. Yet our
sages presented in their works the How & Why of Death. Even in Nadi readings one
can observe that the how & why of death are predicted by the Sages which shows
that astrology was used in the past to predict the nature of death – there was a
purpose to it which would be hinted below. A warning must be given that such techniques
should not be used by astrologers for:

a) Fame or Money
b) Scaring the client directly or indirectly
c) To Show off one’s predictive ability

It can be used for

720
a) Someone who is wanting to progress in his spiritual journey and for whom knowledge
of the future just acts as a tool to help him ‘Accept’ whatever has been ordained by God –
this acceptance attitude, when truly developed, becomes a great spiritual tool in going to the
next level or raising your Kundalini. Yet rarely the client or even astrology students have
used astrology this way.

This technique is another Mota Mota Technique (Broad Technique) and not a ‘so be
it’ pin pointed technique. It is a technique in experimentation & in working still. It also
depends on the astrologers’ ability to use it and after having shared with some team
members, it was found that their having better basics than this scribe enabled them to use it
fantastically on blind charts. It has also been observed that in some charts we have
completely failed. Furthermore, like any technique mentioned in our books, there is not only ‘One’
technique mentioned by the sages for a single event like poverty, wealth, death but various techniques
mentioned and this is like that One of those many techniques and not the one and be all, a mistake often
committed by obsessive critical cum vocal astrologers.

Objection To Revelations of Such Techniques


There will surely be objection from senior astrologers of the pre - 11:11 spiritual event.
Here is what must be understood very carefully and to grasp it would take some time if true
effort is made. Here is what ‘Last Book of Astrology’ says ‘Astrology is a vidya of the saints and
not the common man, its final goal within the astrologer is de-attachment from what he sees in his own
chart (and of others), it is only when he has burnt his chart he can be taught Astrology’. This work is
supposedly a dialogue between a man and a Yogi (in ethereal plane) who is supposed to be in
charge of astrology on the earth plane. We have followed many of the views of the yogi in
the last 4 years and our astrology has changed phenomenally. He says tools need to be given
to astrologers by which they get used to their problems and accept it, by accepting it they
will surrender more to the divine and to the 9 grahas and when they do that, the 9 grahas
will start teaching in return more deeper astrology than what has been revealed till now in
the last thousands of years. He says unless this mass consciousness is not changed among
the world wide astrological community the 9H of the zodiac will not get balance and the
result will be the 8th from it which is earth and thus earthquakes, natural calamities etc will
happen. He says this transformation in the mass consciousness will happen in religion
(many religions are slowly changing itself in last few years and accepting their mistakes),
gurus and other areas of the 9H which includes astrologers, that’s the plan of God otherwise
destruction of the earth (8th from it) is certain. Some will say this technique will be misused
by others but one can’t predict solely with this technique, it only offers a clue and most
important the working of how the chart is functioning in the area of finding out how death
will happen, which was probably a total mystery till now.

Warning

R
eaders with more than 15 years of experience are requested to read this article and if
the reader is still at the stage of astrology where he reads a technique and first
applies it in his chart or his near one’s and gets ‘worried’, then you are requested to
delete this article. The Astrology of the Saptarishis can only be learnt when we
have thrown our own charts in water – only when good or bad events don’t matter to you,
then you are allowed to read astrology articles or books. This was the one of the only reasons
why astrology was kept a gopniya (hidden) shastra, the rest of the reasons were made along

721
the way to guard against competition but it became the source of racism and slavery
(parampara).
The technique at times will sound too simple but, in real practice, it is not so simple. The more
experienced astrologer and simple human being you become, the more simpler this technique will
become to you in time - this must not be forgotten.

How Death Will Happen


Methodology
a) Observe the Sign and the Lord of the 8th House
b) Observe the Planets in the 8th House
c) Observe aspects/associations on point a) & b)
d) Now see where the 8L or Planets in 8H of Rasi Chart have gone in the Navamsa
Chart – this will be the House of Death
e) The sign, house of this House of Death ‘In the Navamsa Chart’ will play crucial role
& give you clues.
f) Note the above various contenders of death, at times during their dasas death ‘can’
happen if they are strong enough. (First determine longevity through calculations then see if
nearby dasa also matches or not).
Please re-read the above few times to grasp it. How exactly to apply this will be displayed in
analysis of the various charts presented. In the above methodology, it is the 8th house from
lagna, in actual practice it is 8th house from the strongest among Asc or Moon or Sun or AL
or Ayur Lagna and this will depend on which Varga is strongest, D1, D9 or D45 or D60. In
order not to complicate this by presenting too many parameters which land up increasing the
possibility of a technique working during testing (but land up messing and using of that
technique) this approach is not presented for now.

Chart: John F. Kennedy – Assassinated while in car on November 22, 1963

8H has 8L Mars (metal) and Mer (travelling) now get the clue with aspect from Saturn
the 6L of accidents and enmity. Note the position of these planets in the Navamsa, Mars is
in 3H of travelling with another karaka of short travels Moon so he should be told to be

722
careful while travelling as that could be ‘how his death will happen’ - he was shot (metal
mars) while travelling in a car during Saturn AD. Note the Saturn that was pointed out as
one of the contenders in the Rasi Chart has gone in the 12H of exit in the Navamsa chart.

Chart: John F. Kennedy Jr

Son of the U.S President John F. Kennedy. 8H has very watery sign Pisces and its lord
is Jupiter in the 5H which is in the arudha of the 3H of flying with the 3L of flying Venus
and 6L of accidents Saturn. Note these contenders of death in D9. In D9 Jupiter the Rasi 8L is
in the 11H which is the 8th (death) from the 4H of vehicles and is with A3 showing flying.
He died in a plane crash in water. The other contender Saturn is in 2H of family in D9, he
was with his spouse.

723
A3
A3

On 7/16/1999, while he and Carolyn were flying to Martha's Vineyard, he reported at 9:39
PM that they were 13 miles off the coast and coming in for a landing. Moments later the
radar showed the plane dropping. After a full day of searching, debris was found in the
water the following afternoon, but no survivors.

Death Technique when Activated by BCP


On 16th July 1999 when the accident happened he was at the age of 39, which means 3H of
flying and short travels. It has Neptune over there in the 3H – Neptune signifies water and
the dangers from it; anyone who sees his chart and who has used outer planets would advice
him not to fly OVER water. Now the BCP Focus year being 3H its lord Venus is with the
8L of death Jupiter and 6L of accidents 'Activated' the above death contenders to deliver the
results.

Chart: Indira Gandhi – shot at home on 31st Oct 1984

Our team member, writer and friend Babban Kumar Singh loves to play the Devil’s
Advocate for some reason. When we called him saying that we might have stumbled upon
how to see how Death will happen, he gave us a blind chart to test us – he said on phone that
the native had Cancer Lagna so we asked him where Saturn and Rahu were placed and he
said Saturn was in lagna in Cancer (home) and Rahu was in the 6H with 4L of home Venus.

724
In addition we asked who aspected 8H he said Mars so in total Mars, Rahu & Saturn are to
be looked in the Navamsa. So we got that Saturn was in the 11H, Mars in the 6H of
accidents or police along with Sun (police) and Rahu in the 4H of home. We thought for a
second and asked him if the native died due to some health issue at home or due to police
firing by mistake. He said in a way it was police and then said it was the chart of Indira
Gandhi.

You can see the 8L Rahu denotes cheating and is sitting in the 4H in Navamsa showing
someone close to her heart (4H is heart) in her home (4H is home) will be the cause of her
death, she was shot by her bodyguards (Sun – police) and it happened during Saturn MD and
Rahu AD the two contenders of her death as previously pointed out.
Sat MD: Rah AD: 1984-06-26 - 1987-05-03

Till the writing of this article, we were perplexed as to the role of Rahu being placed in
Gemini, then in Wikipedia we found this

On 31 October 1984, two of Gandhi's bodyguards, Satwant Singh and Beant Singh, assassinated her
with their service weapons in the garden of the Prime Minister's residence at 1, Safdarjung Road, New
Delhi as she was walking, past a wicket gate guarded by Satwant and Beant, to be interviewed by the
British actor Peter Ustinov, who was filming a documentary for Irish television.

Rahu denotes film/tv and 3H denotes Tv specifically and Gemini is the 3rd H in natural
zodiac. What is to be gathered here is that the surroundings will always match with the
chart, the drama will first be enacted in the chart which is what is so difficult for us
astrologers to see.

Chart: Mechanics Chart from ADB

725
American mechanic. He went to work at a Lincoln-Mercury dealership in mid-1997
on a work release program from jail where he had been incarcerated for alcohol abuse. After
two weeks he was released and rented an apartment. He was very mentally disturbed. At
the Christmas party, he brought his ex-wife, but did not enter in the festivities. On
12/24/1997 he took a pistol and killed himself with a gunshot to the head.
Use our technique, see 8H is empty and its lord is Mercury signifying intellect or loss
of it sitting in the 1H of Head with Sun Saturn Rahu, so all these 4 become contenders in the
Navamsa chart. Which out of these 4 will give the real result is the job of a Master
Astrologer or a Rishi and not us. Now note Sun, Rahu, Saturn and Mercury in the Navamsa
to determine how the native will die.

Sun & 8L of death of Rasi Mercury is with Mars (bullet) aspecting Aries via Mars the very
Lord of Aries which stands for head; this Aries is in turn aspected by Saturn (our other
contender) by its 10th aspect doubly fortifying it. The AD or MD can be of any of the
above 4, so we can note. He died on 24th Dec 1997 by shooting himself in the head when his
Mer AD was running who is one of our contenders for death.

Chart: Rajeev Shahi – Death by hanging on ceiling

This chart was supplied by Babban Kumar Singh, saying that the native died on 10th Nov
2005 by hanging on his house ceiling. Note the 8L Venus comes to the Asc which is head and
is conjoined with Mercury which makes Venus and Mer as contenders for death in the
Navamsa chart. Mercury sits in the 4H of one’s home in the D9 with Ketu (exit) and
becoming headless or doing headless action.

Venus the other death contender goes in an airy sign Gemini in the 6H of accidents or
unnatural death so it can be presumed that he would die in an unnatural death fashion. He
died by hanging himself on the ceiling when Venus/Saturn/Venus Dasa was running.

Chart: Bruce Lee – Cerebral Haemorrhage on 20th July 1973

727
On 7/20/1973 while at the apartment of an actress friend discussing the possibility of
her co-starring in a movie with him, he suffered a severe headache. When he stretched out
on her bed, she offered him the prescription drug Equagesic for his pain. Lee was declared
dead an hour after he arrived at the hospital. First reports indicated that Lee suffered a
cerebral haemorrhage brought on by the Equagesic. Since he hadn't taken enough to do
more than cause an upset stomach an inquest was held. The coroner testified that Lee may
have died of cannabis poisoning because traces of "pot" were discovered in the actor's
stomach and intestines. Friends and associates maintain that Lee was murdered and theories
range from angry Elders of the Manchu Dynasty to the CIA and jealous film rivals bumping
him off. Wikipedia offers ‘Black Belt magazine in 1985 carried the speculation that the death
of Bruce Lee in 1973 may have been caused by "a delayed reaction to a Dim Mak strike he
received several weeks prior to his collapse". As well other authors have said the death of
Bruce Lee may have been due to a "Vibrating Palm technique".
Theories abound and astrology can only indicate roughly. Note the 8L is Mer with 3
planets aspected by Saturn and so is the 8H aspected by Saturn. Note Mer and Saturn for
now in order to avoid too many contenders and see Mer is in Aries (Head) in Navamsa
giving some direction towards cerebral haemorrhage being the case of death but at the same
time Mer is in the 7H of relationships and business partners (that day he was with a woman
actress and business partner Mr. Raymond Chow, the scenario is set). At the same time,
Mercury is the 3L of hands in natural zodiac and the Dim Mak Strike or Vibrating Palm
technique cannot be ruled out. Saturn aspects the 8H from the 6H of unnatural death
becoming one of our contenders and he died during Saturn/Rahu/Saturn. As you know
Rahu defeats Mer in war and here Rahu has created the mystery of his death.

728
Chart: Gorlewski, Dennis

This is taken from Astro Data Bank

729
The 8th lord is Moon (travel) placed with Sun and in the 8th house there is Mars
(significator of accidents). So Moon Mars and Sun become the contenders to give death,
Mars is placed in the 6H of accidents in the D9, Sun carrying the highest shadbala can maybe
become a bigger contender & is placed in the 3H of short travels in D9 in the sign of Sagi
owned by Jupiter. Well he was an American motorcycle cop; he died after being hit by a
dump truck while on duty February 1987. During Feb 87 he was running the antardasha of
Jupiter who is the lord of the Sun in D9 being the contender of death as per the proposed
theory.

Chart: Patrick Swayze – Died of Pancreatic Cancer

A8

A8

8L is Mars in the 3H in sign Scorpio with Gulika, the sign Scorp shows incurable disease.
8H hosts Jupiter – incidentally Jupiter is regarded as karaka for pancreas1.
So there are two major contenders of death Mars (8L) and Jupiter (in 8H). Observe this in
the navamsa: Mars is located in the 7H of maraka and Jupiter is in the 12H of exit with A8
(chronic disease), aspecting the 6H of pancreas region. The native is actor Patrick Swayze
who died of pancreatic cancer.

1
As our knowledge of medical astrology is not of mastery level we asked dear friend Master K S Charak on the
phone regarding pancreas. He said take 5H & 6H and Jupiter & Venus as karaka. Readers can read his medical
astrology classics which are available in every book store.

730
Transgressing for a bit, those who use Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi, observe A8 in the Rashi
chart, note that he died in the 58th year, take A8 as the Asc and the 58th year would be the 7H
whose lord Jupiter signifying pancreas is in the 8H of death and its dispositor Mars is in the
3H which is the secondary house of death.

Chart: Adolf Hitler


2
His time of birth has been suspect and Indian Astrologers of one era have failed to
dig deeper into it. It does not matter here as to what is his time of birth, we have not worked
on his chart to rectify his time of birth but as an example of the technique just use the time
of birth as rectified by Sumeet Chugh in his books.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler#Defeat_and_death

On 30 April 1945, after intense street-to-street combat, when Soviet troops were within a block or two of the Reich
Chancellery, Hitler committed suicide, shooting himself in the temple while simultaneously biting into a cyanide
capsule. Hitler's body and that of Eva Braun were put in a bomb crater, doused in gasoline by SS Sturmbannführer
Otto Günsche and other Führerbunker aides, and set alight as the Red Army advanced and shelling continued.

Astrodata bank gives this

At 3:30 PM on April 30, he and his bride committed suicide. The dictator shot himself through the mouth and Eva
took poison. Their bodies were carried to the courtyard where they were doused with gasoline and torched.

Note 8L Venus is in the sign Aries (head) with Mars (bullet) with Gulika Mandi (poison), a
clue is given, take these contenders of death Venus Mars in the D9 and observe. Note 8L

AstroDatabank says Zenit 11/1933, quotes B.R. BJA same "from a gentleman acquainted with Hitler's sister-in-
law," 7/1938 (The Editor of BJA, 4/1932, rectifies to 6:17 PM. Sabian Symbols No.462 gives 6:14 PM)
(In 6/1989, Claudia von Schierstedt confirmed the data to LMR, from research of archives. Austria at that time
did not have the time of birth on the certificate but Heinz Noesselt, a co-worker at "Zenit," asked at the rectory,
as the church did keep a notice of the birth and christening, and published the information in Zenit 11/1933, p. 431.
Hitler was born 20April 1889 6 1/2 in the evening, at Salzburger Vorstadt 219, Branau."

731
Venus is in the Navamsa in the lagna which is 1H and denotes upper head (he shot himself
in the temple) and Mars (bullet) is there in the 1H in Navamsa.

D 60 Confirmations

Obviously his time of birth would not be accurate to the minute but it does not matter just
use D60 signs as at times it gives superb clues. See the contenders of death as listed above that is
Ven (D1 8L) and Mars both are in the sign of Aries (Head), he supposedly shot himself in
the head. One must note that recent newspaper reports speculates other means of his death
and for decades some have speculated that Hitler escaped to a region called the Center of the
Earth.

Chart: Christopher Reeve – Superman

On May 27, 1995, while riding at the Commonwealth Dressage event, which is a three-
day competition in precision horsemanship, he was thrown forward and hit his head,
suffering multiple fractures of the first and second cervical vertebrae in his spine. The
trauma left him paralyzed and unable to breathe on his own.
Battling a systemic infection stemming from a pressure wound, Reeve suffered cardiac arrest
and slipped into a coma on October 9, 2004 at his New York home. He passed away of heart
failure the following day.

732
8H has Aquarius it has two lords Saturn and Rahu, note these as the primary contenders of
death, see 8L Saturn is in the 3rd house of riding he had a riding accident which paralysed
him. He died due to heart failure, heart is Cancer sign and some even take Leo sign, Virgo
sign is the sign of disease (natural 6H of diseases/accidents). Now see in D9 Saturn is placed
in the sign of Cancer (heart) and in the 6H of accidents, Rahu the other contender is placed
in the 8H of death in the sign of Virgo (accidents and diseases).

D60 has one contender Saturn in the sign of Gemini (riding) and Rahu in Cancer (heart).
He rode got paralysed (Saturn) and it was an incurable disease (Rahu) – and he died of heart
failure (Cancer). If you take mean nodes in D60 you get Rahu in Taurus. D60 lagna could be
accurate as Jupiter in D1 is the 6L of accidents, in D60 it is 3L of riding and 6L of accidents

733
and it is placed in Asc (whole body) effected and on the day of the accident, May 27 1995, he
was running the AD of Jupiter.

Chart: Jerry Garcia

http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Garcia%2C_Jerry

American musician and popular leader of the top rock group "The Grateful Dead." Together
since the mid-'60s, the group had an incredible following and Garcia is a cult figure with
popularity approaching worship by many "Deadheads." Death by Heart Attack on 9 August
1995.

See 8L Mars is with Rahu in the sign of Leo (heart). Note these two contenders of death in
D9 where Mars is in the 11H of Navamsa (8th of death from 4H of heart), Rahu is in Cancer
(heart) in the 12H of exit. He died of heart attack. This chart was illustrated to show another
method which needs to be probed further and fine tuned.

Jerry’s father died of Drowning when Jerry was 5; in Nadi readings you would always find
death details of many members of the family from one chart. See 9H is father, 8th from it

734
(4H) shows the longevity of the father. In the 4H sits A8 (death) – maybe early death. Now
see that the lord of this house is Jupiter and note its position in the Navamsa – it is sitting in
the 8H (natural water house) and in sign of Pisces (very watery sign) with Venus who is
exalted. The death of father happened due to drowning.

Chart: Adolf Eichmann


Double AA rating on birth time by ADB

German Lieutenant Colonel in the SS who drew up a "doomsday book" of 11 million Jews scheduled for
extermination. At the time, he was a hero in Nazi Germany. However, Eichmann went down in
history as an unspeakable monster. He escaped in 1945 and was hunted for years. After he was
captured, Eichmann went through a lengthy trial and was convicted as a war criminal.

Note the 8L in Natal chart is Mars in the 8H and it is placed in the 2H of neck in the
Navamsa. Eichmann was hanged on 5/31/1962, 11:30 PM, Ramla, Israel. Usually hanging
happens on the neck which is what the technique shows.

Chart: Brandon Lee – Not So Easy

735
American actor and noted family, the son of martial arts star Bruce Lee. His dad died on
7/20/1973 of a cerebral haemorrhage. Brandon, who followed in his dad's footsteps to make
action-films was also killed at an early age, on 3/31/1992. While filming "The Crow," he was
struck by a bullet lodged in the barrel of a gun that was supposed to have contained only
blanks, Wilmington, NC.
8L Moon is with 3 planets Venus, Mercury & Sun. Finding out which contender will hit where
is not easy, longevity needs to be calculated by mathematical formula and Yoga and then see
the dasa; if the MD or AD hits one of the contenders then you see where that Contender is
placed.
Let’s take the above example where there are 4 contenders. Which one to choose is a
million dollar question but if you did maths, then take yoga, then take one BSP rule of where
Saturn sits, it implements in the 6th from itself in the 28th year & then know that the native is
doing a film in which he portrays the character called Eric Draven… then you quickly check
Sarvatobhadra Chakra and see which planets aspect E – you would see it is the planet Saturn
of Bhrighu Saral Paddathi striking it in the 28th year… What a coincidence, since Saturn sits
in the 3H of death and E is aspected by Ketu who sits in the 12th house of Exit and Ketu
signifies Mistake. Then you got to check the name of the movie too which was ‘The Crow’ –
so in Sarvatobhadra Chakra3 you see ‘T’ & ‘C’. The letter ‘T’ is aspected by Saturn again and
C is aspected by 8L of death Moon & again Ketu. Worst is Crow is signified by Saturn in
Vedic Astrology and Saturn is natural karaka of death.
Coming back to the technique 8L of death Moon is placed in the 2H with Mer who is
in the 5H of stomach where he was hit by the bullet – and it is with Mars which is metal and
signifies bullet in this case. In D60 also Mer, the contender of death, is with Ketu (showing it
was a mistake) in the 12H of exit – if the D60 is accurate, this takes place in the sign of Leo
showing the stomach where he was hit. He died in Moon AD who is the 8L of death in Rasi.

Father From The Son


Any technique is sometimes very easily evident in a chart & sometimes not so easily
seen – every experienced astrologer knows this fundamental principle of Universe but the
critical astrologer fails to accept & becomes blind to the above fundamental. Father is 9H, 8th
from it is the sign Pisces whose lord is Jupiter (expansive) sitting in the 8th from the 10H of
father again (double whammy) and is with A8 (some death) and is in the sign Aries
(head/brain), all this aspected by the 3rd aspect of Saturn so his father’s death should happen
all of a sudden and it would have something to do with his brain. His dad died on 7/20/1973
of a cerebral haemorrhage.

This is one of our most favourite charts, his life, his story is what real men are made up of.
American author, one of America's favourite short story writers and one of the top
selling writers of the early 20th century. His career was largely compressed into the final
nine years of his life. His adaptation of his pen name, like his refusal to allow his photo to be
printed and his habit of giving out false biographical information, was intended to hide from
the world, and especially from his daughter Margaret, a criminal record. He had been

indicted for embezzlement of bank funds in Austin, Texas and sent to a prison in Columbus,
Ohio 1898 to 1901. He spent his three years in prison writing so he could earn money to support his
daughter.

On the evening of June 3rd, 1910 he was overcome by pain. When taken to the hospital
he emptied his pockets, finding that he had a total of 23 cents. His diabetes and cirrhosis of
the liver were both far advanced. On the morning of June 5th, he stirred and said, "Turn up
the lights. I don’t want to go home in the dark," and died at 7:06 AM. His headstone does not even
mention the name by which he became famous and beloved, but reads William Sydney Porter, 1862-
1910.

Rashi 8H is empty and 8L is Jupiter in the sign of Virgo (Disease) with exalted
Mercury and Saturn (Peeda karaka - disease karaka & poverty karaka also). The 8L Jupiter is in
the 4H in D9 with A8, (death, chronic disease) and A6 (disease). Medical astrology says
Jupiter represents Liver and also causes diabetes (one broad rule, Jupiter aspecting 4H or 4L can
cause diabetes if other factors support as per some). So his death could be either due to heart
disease (Jup in 4H in D9) or due to Liver related issues.

737
On the evening of June 3rd, 1910 he was overcome by pain. When taken to the hospital
he emptied his pockets, finding that he had a total of 23 cents4. His diabetes and cirrhosis of

Ironically at the end of his life he said ‘I don’t want to go 'HOME' (Jupiter in 4H of home in
D9) in the dark (Jupiter is the light).

Data is from Astro Data Bank with Rodden’s AA rating. To predict how death has
happened in this case is just not possible by us though we have seen a stunning prediction on
death from the Legendary Parampara Maharashtrian Astrologer Shri Bhatkhandheji by
using Outer planets (who probably never read western astrology) to predict from a chart
that ‘natives relative would have died by committing suicide in the well in the house’. Let us see this
current chart with Outer planets.

6L in Lagna strikes you first and then you notice the affliction to all the watery signs.
Astrologers must always break up a chart into which of the Tatva signs are afflicted – this
has not been highlighted in the above article but this is a must for every chart that is often
ignored by astrologers. 8H has Uranus who is lord of Aquarius which is sitting in the 4H of
home and well. The 8th Lord of death is Mercury who is with Gulika5 (poison) and Neptune
signifying water is in the 8th house of ghatak from the 4H of well with 4th co-lord Saturn.
Some take 4H for well since in olden days, the well was inside your compound; and some
take 3H for well if the well is outside your compound. Do not forget that this Mercury is the
dispositor of Neptune (water).

4
Usually there is a loose dictum that whenever 8L is with Saturn at the very moment of one’s end, one
won’t have money, this obviously needs to be tested.
5
We are using Jhora settings of Gulika rising at beginning of Saturn’s portion & Mandi at middle of
Saturn’s portion, Parasara’s Light shows it in the 11H so does Shri Jyoti Star but it does not give the
calculation of Gulika Mandi. Even if it is in the 11H house this Gulika (poison) would be with Neptune
(water).

738
Now the contenders of death, Mercury and Uranus in Navamsa, are in the 8H of
death thereby being doubly fortified in the sign of Taurus signifying throat & oral
consumption. Then piece together throat, water, well and poison and read below.

Nep

Nep Ur

American female born into a traumatized black family. She died from poisoned well
water on 12/22/1969, Houston, TX.

In chara dasa of K. N. Rao, it was the AD of Virgo where Neptune (water) is sitting in
D1 – it is the 8th house of Ghatak from well in D1 and the 12H of exit in Navamsa where
Neptune and Rahu (poisoning) are placed; in D60, this Virgo is in the 12H of exit with Rahu
(poison) & Moon (water), death due to poisoned water. One may note that Rahu is the co-
lord of Aquarius & in D60, where the real test of true or mean nodes is seen, it often remains
ignored by astrologers to test the nodes true or mean position in D60 – by verifying, you
would find that if one takes mean nodes, then Rahu is no longer in Virgo but in Cancer.
Sometimes by not using Outer Planets it becomes a bit difficult to see subtle things.

Wells & Classics


Transgressing into classical sources, lets look at what is said about wells in general in
classics:-

Ψ Jataka Parijata Chp 1 Sh 10-12


The seat of Cancer or the Crab is a lake, a pond or a sand-bank in the midst of water.

Well is not mentioned here but let’s assume that Cancer shows water body of a well,
Pisces is river, sea. Now note the signs of Cancer in some of the divisionals of this chart.
Ketu (Exit) occupies Cancer in D1, 4L of well Saturn (disease karaka) is in Cancer in D9,
Rahu (poison) dispositor Mer is situated in Cancer with Venus the 8L of death in D60. The
native must be warned to be careful of water bodies like ponds and wells.

Ψ Brihat Jataka Chp 2 Shl 12


Moon presides over wells and water

739
Ψ Sanketa Nidhi Ch 4 Shl 108
If Moon be in 11H, the man digs wells and succeeds in getting sacrifices and other rites performed.

8th house is the hidden/underground house, now 8th from 4th house of home will be
11H, and this will be what is underneath/ hidden like a well and Moon signifies Water and
wells and thus with Moon in the 11H, man digs wells.

Ψ Saravali Ch 23 Shl 23
The Moon In Cancer: If the Moon is in Cancer at birth, the native will be fortunate, valorous, be
endowed with residence, friends, journeys and astrological knowledge, be sensuous, grateful, be a
minister, be truthful, will live abroad, be passionate, hairy bodied, fond of water and flowers,
interested in construction of houses, wells etc., and will have a prominent neck.

Ψ Satyajatakam Ch 4 Shl 4
If the lord of the 4th house be in its own house, and be strongly placed there, it is extremely auspicious.
(If it be any one of the 5 major planets, Mahapurusha yoga will be caused). All the significations of
the 4th house will thrive to a great extent. This is true even when the lord of the 4th house be placed in
Kendras or trikonas with strength. The native will get higher education, gains and happiness through
his conveyances, buildings and mother. He will build new houses plant fruit trees and dig wells.

Ψ Satyajatakam Ch 4 Shl 13
In general, if the lord of the 4th house be in a Kendra or a kona, or in his own sign and be strong, its
significations i.e. happiness, education, conveyances, lands, agriculture, etc., will thrive well. The
native will dig wells and construct new houses.

Ψ Bhrighu Sutram Chapter 2 Shl 33-40


‘Moon placed in 6H with Rahu or Ketu. In this disposition, watery places like wells or ponds may
prove dangerous for his life’.

Moon is water, Rahu Ketu shows the evil that can come in one’s life and 6H is the
house of diseases, accidents & natural badhak house.

Finale

Y
ou are requested to look at the 9th divisional (D9) of the above chart, Verna Bradly,
and see that the verse quote above of Bhrighu Sutram Chp 2, Shl 33-40 & combine it
with Angihotri Maharaj, Banaras reference of Vol 2 Publitorial. Bhrighu Rishi, the
greatest of all, says that Moon in 6H with Ketu signifies wells might prove dangerous to life
which is what happened. Some writers have spent a lot of time on internet forums like
Jyotish Group trying to argue that houses placements are not valid in divisionals charts –
they are requested to re-look at this chart and combine Bhrighu Rishi’s statements with that
of Agnihotri Maharaj’s.
After going through the above classical quotes (especially Sanketa Nidhi) one is
tempted to think that well might not truly be denoted by the 4H but by the 11H as it is the
the 8th house of underground from the 4H of home/land and water is found underground.
Readers are requested to probe further with charts where natives have comitted suicide in
well or faced dangers in well and these verses will shed more light. At the same time, one is
tempted to re-think more deeply & re-evaluate on :-

740
a) Verses of Sages do not work verbatim
b) One can’t soley depend on blind interpretation of verses
c) Ancient books were written thousands of years back – those verses and yogas do not
work in present times of Kaliyuga

Some of the charts presented in this article work to the T in giving hints; in some one
has to go in a roundabout manner. There were many more cases which have not been
presented here as they were too simple and would add up space but they worked to the T. As
stated earlier, this is not the only technique available to arrive at clues as to how death can
occur. In some blind charts we have failed and only when the manner of death was told
could we see it in a split second using this technique – what that means is the amount of
practice one does greatly helps. It’s like going to the gym and exercising with 20 repetitions
of 3 sets daily for 6 months before fat starts to reduce and faint visibility of cuts of muscles
start to appear. We all need to develop our Jyotish muscles and, using a technique on 5 charts
and forming judgement, is like insulting the gym of astrology.

Navamsa & Clue to Death – More Charts
By
Saptarishis Astrology

A
fter we had written that article on one of the techniques of how to see death, we
had forwarded it to some team members and some of our esteemed writers. Some
feedback we received in terms of more charts and request for explanations on some
charts and if the technique worked on the chart or not.

Navamsa chart which as per Bhuvan Deepika is called the ‘Chart of Fruit of Life’ a huge clue
on what the navamsa is that has been missed. If one misses this Fruit of Life techinque then
for rest of our life one would miss the cruz of astrology. Not only death but many other
things can be seen from the Navamsa. Some have taken this shloka from Bhuvan Deepika
and passed it on as Parampara knowledge (knowledge from tradition) but that is the sad part
of astrology today where teachers do not like to quote shlokas whereas just a few decades
back it was not possible to write an article or discuss in an astrologers assembly without
quoting shloka or an authority.

The following three charts were presented by Sandro Basilioli from Italy, a fantastic
researcher on longevity techniques to whom Indians should be indebted for reviving the
Pravin Jagad technique.

Chart 1: Gilles Villeneuve – Formula 1 Race Driver

742
Before we test our technique, lets see some classic combinations, 8H of death has Mandi
Gulika it shows something sinister, then 6L of accidents with 8L of death is in the 2H of
profession along with kendradipathi dosha planet Mer and host of other combinations.

Now use the technique, 8L of death Moon is with Venus the 6L of accident with Mer,
Jupiter , making all of them the death contenders. See these death contenders in the
Navamsa chart and in order to keep it brief, one of the death contenders Venus is in the 3H
of vehicular accidents, Jupiter another death contender is in the sign Gemini (vehicular
accidents) with Ketu (accident karaka) and another death contender and karaka of
communication Mercury is in the 8H of death. Moon the natal 8L is aspecting the Venus the
other death contender in the Navamsa chart and he died on 8th May 1982 in the Antardasa of
Venus.

Chart 2: Hubbard, L. Ron

743
Hubbard, L. Ron the founder of the Scientology Religion. A controversial man during his
times which makes his chart a wonderful study for astrologers.
Now use the technique 8L in Rasi chart is Mer sitting in the 4H of heart with karaka of
heart Sun, aspected by Moon who sits in the house of Sun thereby giving the Sun Mer
combination more power. Moon is also the 6L of diseases from the 4H of heart. Thus Mer,
Sun and Moon become contenders of death in the Navamsa and their you would find two of
them Sun and Moon in the 4H of heart. The other contender Moon 8L of Rasi is with
Jupiter in D9.
Hubbard suffered a stroke on 1/17/86 which left him debilitated and bedridden, with
his speech badly impaired. He died at his Creston, CA ranch at 8:00 PM on 1/24/1986. He
got his heart attack in Jup MD and Sun AD and died in the same.

Chart 3: James Dean, American Actor

A6 Pluto

A6 Pluto

744
American actor, an instant star in 1955 who was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for his
role in "East of Eden," which was followed by "Giant," 1956. He became a timeless cult
favorite for "Rebel Without a Cause," 1955,a title which he apparently accepted as his
personal banner.

8H has Moon and 8L Venus is with Saturn (8L from 4H of vehicles) and aspected by Jupiter
who is dispositor of 8L and is sitting with A6 (accidents), Pluto (dramatic accident) in the
sign of Gemini (vehicular accidents). Now see these contenders of death Moon, Venus,
Jupiter and Saturn in the Navamsa chart. Jupiter (note) sits in the 4H of vehicles, Moon is
with kendradipathi dosha graha Mercury (note) & True Rahu (note) aspecting the 8H thereby
forming relation, Saturn is in the 12H of exit and bad accidents and Venus the Rasi 8L of
death is in the 7H of maraka house in Navamsa in sign Gemini which indicates loss through
vehicles.

He was killed in a wild auto accident caused by speeding in his Porsche Spyder on 9/30/1955
(25th year) on the highway near Cholame, CA. He died in Jup/Rahu/Mer. Jupiter, Rahu and
Mer have been shown as contenders as death in the above paragraph.

BCP
If he had a Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi Astrologer seeing his 25th year, he would have
calculated it and seen that the BCP Focus year for the 25th year comes in the 1H and its lord
Jupiter is in the 4H of vehicles with A6 (accidents), Gulika and in sign Gemini (loss via

745
vehicles) then James Dean would have been adviced to stay away from vehicles but can an
astrologer change Fate with has been associated with the planet Pluto.

Chart 4: Writer

This chart belongs to one of our writers.

A8
A8

746
The 8H has Ketu and the 8L Mars is with Jupiter and Rahu in sign of Libra which denotes
sexual organs. The dispositor of all this is Venus who is with A8 (chronic). These
contenders of death Ketu, Mars, Jupiter and Rahu must be observed in the Navamsa, Jupiter
again is in the sign of Libra (private parts) aspecting the 8H where the 8L Mars of Rasi has
gone in the 8H of very private parts. The native was detected with Testicular Cancer in the
year 2003/2004 when Venus/Venus was operative.

Chart 5: Dharu Peene Se Liver Kharab Hota Hain

It means ‘The Effects of drinking alcohol spoils the liver’ – this was a famous dialogue said
by the Superstar Amitabh Bachchan in a movie. The dialogue delivery was a masterpiece
which caught the fancy of the nation and everyone till date repeats it. This chart was sent by
another team member of man whose liver has been removed and is a medical miracle. We
have so far not put in charts where karaka is to be seen for death and was waiting for it to be
in the next issue.

Some debate that Jupiter is not the karaka for liver, but liver is spoilt due to heavy drinking
and alcohol is represented by Rahu and Rahu infact gets debilitated in Jupiters sign. See the
natives chart the 8L is Jupiter and debilitated and Moon is placed who is dispositor of A6,
Saturn aspects the 8H. Thus there are 3 contenders Jup, Moon and Saturn, see it in the
Navamsa. Jupiter is placed in the 8H of death in D9 and Saturn is placed in Libra denoted
lower stomach region with Mer who denotes the 6H regions of ones body. He was detected
with Liver Cirrhosis and since last 2 years his liver has been removed and he is still alive, a
medical miracle among doctors who are confused as to how he is still alive. As you can see
Jupiter and Saturn are two contenders and both in Rasi and Navamsa Jupiter is in Saturn
sign making the dasa of Jupiter/ Saturn or Saturn/Jupiter an event marking dasa. In
Jupiter/Saturn he was detected with Liver Cirrhosis and in May 2009 within that same AD
his liver was removed.

Lomesha Degree Methodology Experiment
Lomesha Rishis Application of Using Degrees of Planets For Predictions

Saptarishis Astrology

W

ith prayers to Lord Ganapathi & submission at the holy feet of Lomush Rishi
we start this work to give us success in this venture of understanding his work,
as it was he who ‘first’ revealed the usage of degrees to Sujanma, though at this
stage we are unable to discern the methods mentioned by him. We pray to
Lomush Rishi to kindly grant us knowledge on this by the end of this paper or to the readers
who can in turn decipher and decode a correct understanding of the works of Lomesha Rishi
as mentioned at the end in the Appendix.

Background

T
2
wo yrs back in July-Nov 04, when we had finished working on Patel Sahebs
3
exposition of the Hora Sara Method, we had tangentially then thought of the usage
of degs. At that time due to no encouragement from seniors very little testing on
1
Some call Lomesha, some Lomesh, some Lomush Rishi
2
Right now it is 2010 May, this article was written many years back, most of the things have been
retained except some editing done, rough language removed and explanations made more simpler than
what it was though a better writer would explain it more lucidly for sure.
3
Not yet published anywhere except circulated in private to close friends Jay Weiss, S V Shastry,
Norah Nasturas, Juliana Swanson, Robert Koch, Finn Wandhal, Phyllis Chubb, Margaret George,
Vinay Patwardhan & so on years back. Also most of our articles before the start of Saptarishis
Astrology were always circulated to the above mentioned astrologers & many other friends so that we
could get feedback of theirs. If some does not give feedback positive or negative, we never bother to send
them any material ever as feedback is what helps growth in astrology.

749
this theory was done. What was the basis of the testing?. Say why is Ven or any other
planet at only 17 degs or 20 degs why not at 19 or 24 degs, at cases navamsa (the Fruit of a
Chart) also doesn’t change so what’s the use e.g a planet in 2 deg Aries or 3 deg will still be in
Aries Navamsa but do the planets behave differently at different degs. John Thomas
4
(Charubel 1826-1908) & Sepharial have done valuable work in their books on nature of
different degs, but here we had a theory which as usual was rejected instantly by great
astrologers who had spent 30-40 yrs in astrology. The theory was simple as we were working
on nadi for a long time in everything we could see years, so our theory was ‘The degree of any
planet represents the years of one’s life’. There are only 30 degs in a sign so all years of life
cannot be covered, there might be a method to go beyond the 30 yrs but is not the scope of
this paper though it has been adequately touched in this article.

One of the reasons astrologers of repute do not share their techniques is due to the fear
of constant criticism betted out in forums and astrological circles and often these criticisms
get personal at the end of the day. As a result many good techniques have never come out.
Few years back in 2006 we sat with mentor in one of the 5 star hotels in Mumbai with a
session that normally lasts 12-14 hours. When we presented this very same article to Mentor
he dismissed it saying that’s not the full technique it’s already there in BPHS. We said we
have not found it in BPHS, he said Venkateshwar Press BPHS, but as it is in Hindi our lack
of the language has till date restricted us from reading it or other works in Hindi. Scribe still
remembers Mentors words ‘If you cannot read Hindi you will miss out great many things in
astrology’ – this is so true since today most astrologers on forums and websites are products
of English books of astrology of last 20 years and they do not have the real knowledge base
of what Hindi belt astrologers in India have, something this scribe also lacks.

Finally we got a friend to translate that chapter in BPHS but by the time it came to us
our interests were drawn to other areas of astrology. The story goes like this, that particular
chapter in BPHS of Venkateshwar Press (one of the oldest BPHS and Venkateshwar Press
was one of the most reputed publishers in olden days), has been rejected by scholars since
that chapter is supposed to be by Lomesh Rishi to Sujanma and how can it form a part of
Rishi Parasara’s BPHS. We like mentor likes to look at it the other way, if there is a verse
even if it was wrongly inserted in BPHS by the writers of BPHS of Venkateshwar Press, a
verse needs to be looked at it from its astrological point of view and not to spend decades
discussing whether it was a part of BPHS or not. That’s the difference between Mentor and
Scholars, scholars waste time arguing mentor spent the last 25 years going from master to
master trying to understand that chapter. As per mentor the late authority on astrology Shri
Nanakchand Sharma from Delhi who was originally from Lahore knew the secret of this
chapter and knew how to use it in practice. He promised to mentor that he would teach him
this but it never happened. Late Shri Nanakchand Sharma had learnt astrology from his
Guru in Lahore and mentor once asked him that timing of events is not properly happening
via dasas. The old man then replied that the original purpose of dasas is not entirely timing
of events (this is contrary to popular knowledge till date) and for timing of events he told mentor
that mentor should study the chapter of Lomesh Rishi given in Venkateshwar Press BPHS
(this was prior published to Sitaram Jha’s BPHS). Sharmaji said that this chapter was actually
from Lomesha Samhita and his own Guru had taught him many things from Lomesha

shop.saptarishisastrology.com

750
Samhita and BPHS (that was published in Lahore much before Venkateshwar Press edition5), the
chapter in Venkateshwar Press BPHS on Lomesh Rishi was just the tip of the iceberg and
the real thing is in Lomesh Samhita which is a super fine method for timing of events than
any known. Must digress here and talk more on Sharma ji, well Mr. K N Rao & many old
timers know of Shri Nanakchand Sharma and one of our team member Mr Anuj Bahl from
Delhi, at a very young age of 8 or so was saved by Sharmaji via remedial measures. Mr
Sharma knew by memory all verses of BPHS & Jaimini Sutras and as per authentic sources
he was the finest in Jaimini Sutras, mentor had actually gone to him for studying cure for
cancer as a Lama from Tibet who had done similar work was staying with Mr Sharma.
Sharmajis knowledge of Ayurveda and tantra was so great & he was often consulted by the
ministers of Delhi, he was also appointed by Govt of India for the Ayus Project and given
land in Delhi for Ayurveda. The end is he could never share the real secrets of this chapter
of BPHS with mentor and mentor says that after travelling all over India he never met a
person who had even dwelled on this chapter in a serious form.

Coming back as the original idea was written by Lomesha Rishi and there is no
original idea or original research though many claim it since everything that is to be is
already there in the Ethereal Universe we are just antennas grasping it hence the title of this
article is given as ‘Lomesha Anshak Paddathi’ giving credit to the Rishi though the
technique matches with only one or two verses of the Rishi. Anshak means degree and
Paddathi means Methodology. The reason this is being released now is since due to some
grace we have been successful in removing few chapters of the most ancient manuscript ever
which is the Lomesha Samhita which has been duly translated by Veneet Kumar and
manuscript donated by a great astrologer friend who truly believes in serving the rishis
rather than himself, he hails from outside of Maharashtra and wishes to remain anonymous.

Lomesha Anshak Paddathi


Theory 1
1. ‘The Degree of every planet corresponds to a specific Age in the life of a native & would
give results according to either its main karakatwa or lordship from Asc/Moon/ Arudha
Lagna/Specific Point in the Horoscope’

Theory 2
2. ‘The number corresponding to the deg of the planet is the age in actual i.e based on
formula 1 deg is 1 yr e.g. 25 deg of Ven is the 25th year of life, 0 deg is 1st year & so on’

Theory 3
3. ‘The Deg of a planet is to be treated in 3 ways
a) If planet is at 25.30 degs it is the 25th year in ones life event concerning it will happen
b) If planet is at 25.30 degs we round off the degs to also the 26th year
c) The minutes of a planet can be calculated into months e.g 60 mins = 365 days, so 1 min
= 6.08 days but for simplicity we shall ignore this for now.

5
We have tried for long to get this Lahore edition of BPHS but all our efforts via our friends in
Pakistan have failed and do not even know if such an edition existed.

751
If an event is seen in 25th year then we predict it as 25/26th year a similarity often
found in nadi readings
Theory 4,5,6,7
4. ‘Yogas’ have to be fruitfully used with the degs
5. ‘Planets’ in different houses are in a constant state of chemical reaction of plusses & minuses
– this has to be understood subtly & well.
6. ‘Couple of Planets in a single house will function in an intricate manner of pluses & minuses
e.g. Ven, Mer, Sun all 3 in one house then Ven deg will denote age at one event & so on
for Mer & Sun and at the same time Ven deg + Mer deg= another event, Ven deg +Mer
deg + Sun deg = another event & so on. Use aspects on planets also to give another event.
7. ‘A malefic when used in addition (above) either delays event by corresponding year (deg)
so we add malefics deg and/or like in Longevity concept of traditional astrology it
reduces the years of ones life – this has to be used judiciously.
8. Retrograde planets are to be treated differently, since they are moving backwards. Rahu
Ketu are constantly retrograde so it has to be treated 2 ways e.g. if Rahu is at 0.30 deg then
it is in its 1st deg and/or also it has already covered 29.30 degs in that sign so it is in its 30th
deg= 30th year.

There are many more rules which we shall see in the examples to follow, also in the
examples one would see a fine mix of ‘Fixing Astrology’ (Match fixing astrology!!!) & ‘Fast
Food Astrology’ but the intention of this write up is to induce further research & fine tuning
in this topic. Match Fixing Astrology has two sides to it one the obvious for which most
astrologers are accused & other side is it helps in ‘Development or Discovery of Techniques at
times’ – the mixture of it can at times become ‘Observational Astrology’ which is far greater
than any form & is the Guru of Gurus.

The following is not a mathematical method but an intuitive method hence a more advanced
student can get greater success & precision in this is scribes experience.

Degrees are everywhere but finding the planet/s that cause the event is the key to any
prediction & even in this method. More the mastery of this science the better one would be than this
attempt below.

Logic can be the greatest asset of an astrologer and yet the greatest enemy of an astrologer,
honest brilliant predictors know when it is the greatest enemy of an astrologer whereas the scholar
only lands up misguiding himself and others with logic whose base is 200 books & not 20,000
manuscripts of our ancients. Only when you learn at the feet of the Guru by giving your life to the
Guru you learn when to use or ask for logic and when not to. Extreme Usage of intuition is only
required when full clarity on technique or full technique is not there (like this one).

Once you master this technique you can use this technique to fine tune the time of birth very
accurately is our experience since years, this technique and our D 60 technique has proved to us a
superior technique than any other birth time rectification technique.

752
Example 1: Kerala astrologer & Saptarishis Astrology Team Member

We shall deal with only one or two planets in each charts (except detailed in Ex.8) to illustrate
method & also to add variety. Native of this chart is an advanced sadhak, his father &
grandfather were well known, both were excellent Vedic scholars adept in mantra shastras.

Mantra initiation at age 13 & 10.


™ Jup is exalted in lagna, its deg is 12:01 so it is in the 13th deg of the sign, which means
either 13th year of life or after the 12th year a event concerning Jup should happen

™ 5H is the house of mantra, the 9th house (5th from 5th) is the house of Advanced Mantra,
Jup is dispositor of father (9H) & Ketu who is 5L of mantra sits in 9H, Jup is also exalted
so the native in the age of 136 was passed a very secret (ketu) & advanced (9L Jup)
mantra (Jup) by his father (9H). This was reported to scribe as a turning point in natives
life.

™ Now see rule/theory 6 & apply here, as Jup is in 1H & Asc deg is also there, so we can
add or subtract both to get some event. Asc-2.50=3 years & Jup is 12.00. Subtract both &
we get 12-3=10, in the 10th year the native was given the first mantra initiation by father
(Jup is 9L & Jup is mantra)

Death of Father – 3H – 18th year


™ 3H is maraca for father from 7H of father, for those who use 10H as father, 6H from 10H
is the house of ‘Unnatural Death or Akala Mrityu’ a concept not utilized by astrologers for
3H.

™ Sun stands for father & it is at 21.36 deg which means 22nd year & from 9H of father it is
6L in 7H of maraca & 3H of death from lagna

™ Rahu stands for dramatic event & is in maraca house for father & is also 8L in 3H
signifying someone’s death & 12L in 7H from 9H of father (we can also use 10H for
6
You can use BCP and 13th year will come in the 1H where exalted Jupiter sits & it is lord of 9H of
advanced mantra.

753
father). Rahu is in 3.04 deg so either 3rd year or 4th year, minutes being only 0.04 it leans
more towards 3rd year

™ Mer is 12L & 3L from Asc & 7L in 7H of maraca from 9H, Mer is 27.38 deg=28th year

™ So out of these 3 one of them or all of them in various permutations & combinations the
event for father will happen i.e Sun(22)+Rahu(4)+Mer (28) or Sun – Rahu(malefic) or
various other combinations

™ Sun = 22nd year


- Rahu= 4th year
==========
Total = 18th year (19th July, 1996)of this natives life his father expired suddenly which
was in a fashion only true astrologers do it, he did his evening prayers, said GoodBye
to his family members who were curious as to why he is saying that & then he slept
never to wake up. The native further adds that “We used to do the Nithyapuja to the
goddess. The puja ended at 8.30 pm as usual. He sat in the swing and started to speak
with my younger sister on a particular stotra "Vishnubhujangam". It is one of
beautiful poems composed by Shankaracharya on his mother's deathbed. It is mere
coincidental that, on that day, we recited the same shloka. :)”

Cancer to Mother

™ Ven is the 4L in the 4H with maraca Mars 7L & 2L from 4H & 4L, Mars is blood among
many things, Ven deg is 27.37 which means 27th year or 28th year an event in the life of
natives mother is expected

™ If we add year of birth Oct 1978 to 27th (year) we get Oct 2005, well in Nov 2005 (28th
year) this scribe received emotional call from a Loving Son that his mother is suffering
from Blood Cancer & he is rushing to his native place. The chart owner performed a
special Mrityunjaya pooja himself & miraculously within 2 days his mother was out of
danger to the astonishment of doctors.

™ Sat powerful 3rd aspect which either destroys or growth aspect is on this Ven Mars in
4H, if we take growth aspect then the white blood cells growth happened which is blood
cancer. {The chart bearer after reading this added ‘Why this Saturn's 3rd aspect is growth
oriented? an explanation came to my mind is Saturn is aspecting from the 11th an upachaya or
house of growth (3, 6, 10, 11)}.

We can spend lifetimes arguing as to why we didn’t add the degs of Ven & Mars or instead
simply use this technique & predict spectacularly with intuition, this scribe has no answer to
the above dilemma except that one event will be at the age of Ven & another at the age of
Mars & another two by adding or deducting Ven & Mars degs. The issue is how an astrologer
uses intuition with the above technique, stares at the grahas and the grahas will talk back otherwise
why does anyone write ones intuition has to be strong and at the same time ask for logic as to why this
or why this not ?

Gain of Job

754
™ Scribe knows that the native works for Govt in a state away from his home state, so
scribe asked him on the basis of degree of Sun (21.36) if he got this stable job in govt at
the age of 22, he confirmed it. Note Sun is the 2L of income placed in the 3H of away
from home & 12th from 4H.

™ Additionally the native said that at the age of 18 he got his first job, scribe immediately
looked at his D10 & saw 5L of new opportunity Moon is placed in the 2H of income with
swagrahi Mars, forming a chandra mangala yoga with A6 (service) & Gulika
(unhappiness/change) & Moon is in D10 is at 17.45 deg7 = 18th year alongwith being Amk
(career) so an event in career can be expected at the age of 18 (Job timing with this method is
more intricate & complex than simplified version above, young readers should not get impressed
with the above.)

Note: Jaimini Karakas is to be ‘Only Last’ as an aid in determining nature of event, every time it
won’t work the same way it is to be used in vim dasa.

Example 2: Just Married & Divorced

Before we go on to the next chart, let us think that to master just one method of timing like
say Vimshottari Dasa it takes one years if at all one masters, that too with so many books
and commentaries to our aid, so to master any new method of timing for e.g. this Lomesha
Anshak Paddathi how long will it take especially if we have just touched the tip of the iceberg
& the remaining sutras (at the appendix) remains to be interpreted by masters.

7
Years back only Goravani software had divisional degrees, do not know if Parasara Light had it or not,
the writer of this column had used Goravani Software which was considered as one of the finest
softwares ever, nowadays many softwares are trying to give divisional degrees. There is a very
important logic of using degrees in divisionals. Suppose a planet say Moon is in Aries Navamsa at the
edge, then say if it moves by even one second it would be in different Navamsa in Ta Navamsa that is.
Which means that a slight change in degree in the Rasi changes the position in divisional which means
the degree of divisional is important.

755
Event 1: Divorce

™ Ven is exalted but retrograde, retrograde is Past life issue & can also mean reversal of
path. Ven is with 6L of divorce Sun & 7L of marriage. Of all the 3 planets Ven is closest
to the Asc deg (self) making it more powerful.

™ Ven is 8L & 3L & from 7h it is 2L of sustenance of marriage along with being the
controller of Bhagya (9L from 7H) of marriage so this planet becomes a bigger key than
Mer.

™ Ven deg is 29.43 so either the 29th year or the 30th year will give a Big Event in marriage
area or any other area connected with Ven & Associated Planets.

™ Birth date is Mar 1977, so 29th year of natives life will be from Mar 2005 to March 2006,
now in Mar 2005 (29th year) natives wife left him & in Jan 2006 they were legally
divorced – all this a shock to the native. Thus the degree of Venus being 29 gave him event in
the 29th year.

Event 2: Brother

™ Taking the above discussion forward we see that an event in 29th or 30th year can be
seen.

™ Now 3H is siblings in GENERAL & we narrow down to 3H for younger siblings & 11H
for elder siblings, but we cannot forget that 3H is still siblings in general. 3L is Ven so an
event in the life of Brothers should happen in the 29th/30th year.

™ On 31st Aug 06, in the 30th year of native’s life, his elder brother died due to heart attack
under mysterious circumstances, natives brother was only 36 yrs old.

Pls note that Ven is AK (atma karaka – soul significator) so whatever happens due to Ven
would be soul shaking events or/and very very karmic which is what happened in the years
indicated by Venuses degree in the chart.

756
™ Another interesting observation is in D3 Ven (involved in our yog) is at 29.09 deg =30th
year, Ven is the 7L of maraca & 12th lord of Exit of life placed in 1H of body, so exit of
brother circumstances happened in the 30th year of natives life.

Event 3: 27th Nov 2004 Marriage i.e. in 28th year

™ Here 5L is Moon placed in 2H of family (addition in family) but it is with ketu (breaks).
Moons deg is 27.41=28th year

™ Lagna degree is 27.51=28th year, again indicating a specific event to self in the 28th year.

™ Lets see D9 & degs in D9 – Mer the 7L in D9 is only in the 10th deg again too low for
marriage, lagna deg is again low, but lagna has Ven (the Amk in D9 showing karma of
D9) & it is in 27.27 Pisces =28th year, 7H has Sun (AK- soul, karmic angle to marriage –
remember he got divorced within 1.5 yrs from Indian standards point of view) in 28.00
Vi= 28th year.

™ So far 28th year has repeated 4 times, so something concerning his marriage event can
happen in this year which is what happened.

Theory 8: Retrograde planets are to be treated differently, since they are moving backwards.
Rahu Ketu are constantly retrograde so it has to be treated 2 ways e.g. if Rahu is at 0.30 deg
then it is in its 1st deg and/or also it has already covered 29.30 degs in that sign so it is in its
30th deg= 30th year.

Example 3: Worlds Favorite Superman

Event 1: Romance with the ‘S’ Emblem

When Superman starring Christopher Reeves was released people fell in love with the Man
of Steel, for the first time we could see a man really flying – it was Wowwww. Reeves the
eternally handsome man became embedded in the hearts of women & men alike world over,

757
every one wanted to be him – Reeves fame was immortal as if he alone was born for this role
they said.

™ Ketu (accident) in lagna is what strikes first, but then we see Moon the famous
debilitated moon often found in the charts of famous men, this moon is in the 5H of
fame with swagrahi mars, involved in powerful Gajekeshari Yoga in D9 with swagrahi
Jup in 5/11 axis of fame, in another GKY yoga in 3H of rides/flying (Superman) in D10
& another GKY yoga in D60.

™ This Moon is with Yogakaraka Mars (Yk being 5L in 5H), so Mars can further give the
results too in a combined manner.(Mars is further in 5H of fame/films in D10)*

™ So we see the deg of this Mars 25.03 Sc= 25th year or 26th year, adding it to yr of birth,
1952+25=1977 & with 26th year we get 1978. In 1977 he got the greatest role of his life that
would give him fame (Moon Mars in 5H two kendra lords in 5H), shooting began in
March 1977 (25th year) & movie was released in 1978 (date not known)

Event 2: Directional Debut in 1997 with HBO film ‘In The Gloaming with Glenn Close,
Whoopi Goldberg, Bridget Fonda, won 4 Cable Ace Awards, was nominated for 5 Emmy
Awards including ‘Outstanding director’

So obviously his 5th house should be activated

™ Earlier we calculated that Mars gave him 1977 (1952+25 deg of mars), now lets add Moon
which is also there in the 5H in the 20th deg giving us 1977+20= 1997 the year of the film,
fame etc a 5H activity where both Mars & Moon are placed.

Event 3: Fatal Accident while horse riding on 27th May 1995 (43rd year) which paralyzed him.

An event must be as usual corroborated by many dashas, many types of transits & many
methods within this deg method to get confirmation of rough year

™ Another innovative way of seeing horse accident is see 6H shows accidents, the sign
here is Sagi which denotes a man on a horse merged, lord is Jup who is retrograde in
Karma Sthana, since it is retro it is past life event & also is 5th (past) from 6th house. Jup
is with A8 (chronic accidents). Now from Jups placement, the 6H has 3 malefics
showing accidents so our attention is more on 3H now.

™ 3H is secondary house of chronic accidents (8th from 8th), & also important in our
context it carries the karma of the 6H of accident (10th from6th) , there are 3 planets in
3H, 2 of them dreaded enemies of each other (remember he suffered from asthma &
allergies –3H effect). One can refer to wikipedia to see the problem in concerned body
parts & corroborate with the chart. Now 3H becomes focal point, add the degs of all
planets in the 3H the total arrived is 42 degs = 42 yr, whereas the accident happened in
the 43rd year of his life.

758
™ D6 shows the accidents in depth, 2nd & 7th houses are maraca houses & lagna of D6
shows the body.

In D6 Asc shows self (body) & Ven is the 8th & 3L of chronic accidents in 2H of maraca
(death) & 7H of maraca has Jup lagna lord (body) & 10L of karma of D6

Asc = 5.22
Ven=22.55
Jup=14.19
=========
total=42.36 = 43rd year = 43+1952= 1995 – year of his fatal accident
=========

Confusion will always prevail and it is left to the most intuitive astrologer to decipher to
choose the planets which to add with his experience, to arrive at as a confirmatory tool &
use the right dasa to pinpoint further.

Event 4: Death on 11th Oct 2004

™ Ketu in the lagna usually shows some fatality, lagna is body so adding lagna + ketu
Asc: 25.53 (26th year)
Ketu 27.28 + (28th year)
========= ========
53.21 i.e. 53 or 54th year
rd

========= =========

53rd year would be from 25th Sept 2004 to 25th Sept 2005 & he died within this year in Oct 11th
2004.

If we take 0.21 as balance out of 53.21 gotten above, we would get it as 127days or 4.1 months
which will add up to Jan 05, if the lagna deg is deducted by 1 min one gets near Oct 04 when
he expired

759
Food for Thought: It is common sense that all those who have ketu in lagna cannot die in the year
indicated by adding both, but what it indicates is some event can happen to the body (lagna) in that
year of non-good nature (ketu), when one gets the event year then one can check with 3 dasas minimum
& transits to get conclusion.

Event 5: ‘Nothing is Impossible’ by Christopher Reeves on New York Times bestseller for 10
weeks

™ Mars is ink & is powerfully disposed in 5H of writing (3rd to 3rd), Mars is Yogakaraka too
in 5H of buddhi, add Ygk to lagna (25.03+25.53=50.56=51st year) & we get 51st year i.e. from
Sept 02 to Sept 03 when his book was published called ‘Nothing is Impossible’ (did mars
suck energy out of the moon).

Example 4: Bush Jr – Timing Traditional Yogas

Event 1: Texas Governor (49th year)

™ Much has been written about his Gajakeshari Yoga so we omit that. Let’s time when
(all) his GKY will fructify with this method.
™ Jup-25.02 deg & Moon-23.36 – Gajakeshari Yoga in 3H, which shows the karma (action
also) of the 6H of contesting. For lovers of Jaimini kindly note Jup is Amk – career, i.e.
start of real career.

Jup 25:02
Moon 23.36
==========

760
48.38 = 49th year i.e. from July 94 to July 95
==========
& in this period on 17th Jan he became governor of Texas. (note by other method of roundoff
we get 50th year). But when we predict we should always predict 49th or 50th year of life event
can happen i.e. in 1995 or 1996.

Event 2: Presidency

™ Sat delays the real fruit (doesn’t deny), now this Sat aspects this GKY (Jup Moon
combo) & this delay can be either of 1-2 yr (traditional way of seeing) or by 4 years as
Sats deg is 3.24=4th year.
Sat + GKY=4+1995/1996=1999 or 2000 year an event concerning his bhagya (Sat 9L) &
Jup (amk) can happen and it was in this period of 1999/2000 he ran for the most powerful
office in the world & won elections in 2000 Dec.

Example 5 : J.S – a predictive attempt

In brief
™ Scribe predicted in 16th year looking at D10 Amk deg & was wrong in predictions (no
dashas), but then we came back to D1 & saw another planet in the 16th deg that is Moon,
who is PK (love) , 5L of D9 & in 4H of mother, so it was asked if in the 16th year was
there a love affair & if there was something to do with mother or property matters (4H
matters), lady replied that in 16th year she fell in love with her first boyfriend & her
mom had some health problems. First love is a significant event.

™ Then she was asked if in her 28th year of life i.e. from Feb 1982 to Feb 1983, what
happened in terms of career & 8H matters & Jup matters, she replied that ‘’ Feb. 1982-
Feb. 1983 I continued working in the same job that I had since 1978 but was offered a

761
significant job raise to operating room supervisor (which I declined). In Dec. 1982 I
decided to leave my first marriage and we divorced in April 1983.’’
See, this was asked for two reasons Jup & Sat are both in the 28th deg, so 28th year
should give results of 2H of family, end of marriage & also Jup is in the 8H of
sustenance of marriage & career matters as Jup is amk. Now Sat also being in the
same deg and is AK so some soul level deeeep karmic event can happen (combine this
with Jups significations) & in Dec 1982 she decided to leave her first marriage,
correspond this with Nav lagna deg which is in 28th deg so we get another
confirmation that something re marriage can happen in 28th /29th year

™ Now see D4, the D4 lagna in 29th deg, both for Parivritti Chaturthamsa & also Parasari
Chaturthamsa so obviously an event concerning House/Residence can be seen & she
shifted in the 29th year from West Virginia to California.

Example 6: Ambassadors mothers’ death in his 6th year

™ Lagna is at 6.27 which means 7th year, 2 mins earlier time can always be possible (if
major divisionals are not changing) and the deg would be 5.59 which is 6th year hence a
significant event effecting self can always happen.

™ Now 4H is mother, 3rd from 4th & 8th from 4th house shows longevity of mother and it is
lorded by Ven who is combust closely with Sun. This Ven is in 5.26 deg that is 6th
deg=6th year hence we can say that in the 6th year there is some possibility of an event
effecting the life of mother & that is what happened, his mother died in the 6th year in
the dasa of badly associated Moon who is also MK & Tr Sat® was aspecting 4H & natal
Sat

Example 7: Mother dies on March 6th, 1977.

Chart belongs to a dear astrologer friend from Europe, who had a tragedy in life when his
mother died due to mysterious circumstances of suicide. Before we see his chart, let’s

762
remember the great Prithyuyasas whose Navamsa method in Hora Sara is scribes favorite,
where we see that he has shown us to deduct from a sign, that is reverse counting. Say if
planet is in 3 deg, we deduct from 30 to get 27 deg and corresponding year.

™ Now Mother is Moon & in 18th deg so in the 18th year of his life some event to mother8
should have happened or to his mind or as it is in 9H of higher education with a powerful
GKY in creative watery sign, and it should be at the fag end of his 18th year as Moon is at
17.50 minutes, he is born in Nov so in Oct – sept of his 18th year something should happen
which is what happened. Higher education in classical music started in September 1972 at the
Royal Danish Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen.

™ Coming back to Moon the MK (Maa) is with Jup who is GK (showing


accidents/diseases) & this Jup in D1 is a maraca to 4H (from 4H it is 2L of maraca in
6H). In D12, this Jup is in the 12H from 4H along with the 4L of mother Ven. Jup in D12
is 6L of accidents & from 4H it is 3L of death & 6L of accidents placed in 12H of exit

8
Do not know what happened to mother in this age.

763
so this way Jup becomes a very stronger contender to play spoilsport, its deg is 6.43 in natal,
deducting this from sign deg of 30, we get 22.17 i.e. 23 i.e. 23rd year and in his 23rd year from
Nov 1976 to Nov 1977, she committed suicide (Mar 6th 1977)

Example 8: Using Curses & Yogas

™ Ven is at 5.04 = 6th year, Ven is DK, Ven is woman, Ven is in 12H of bed pleasures, Ven
is with Sat (servant), so at age 6 an event regarding woman should happen but native is
very young so can we predict with confidence, we can’t. But at the age of 6 native was
sexually molested by a female servant (servant karaka is Saturn).

™ Sat is Amk (career), in nadi Saturn is Karma karaka (career), Sat is 8th lord of change &
9L of bhagya, Sat is in 12H of spirituality, Sat the 9L is with 5L & 12L a yoga for
spirituality in the 12H of spirituality, Sat is 26.10=27th year which is May 99 to May 2000.
In this year he changed his profession (8L of change) then re-entered it in new capacity
& joined a spiritual outfit. This was also the year of sudden shift in his spiritual outlook
& met many spiritual teachers of high order.

™ Moon is mother, Moon is also Jaimini MK (significator of mother), Moon is in 3H of


karma of accidents, Moon is aspected by 6L & 11L of accidents Mars, Mars additionally
also signifies accidents, Moon is in 18th deg, in the 18th year of the native which is 1991
natives mother suffered a very bad accident which even till date troubles her.

™ Asc deg is 19.24=20th year, Asc shows body & is trine to Mars & Ketu (accidents) in 1H
debilitated. In 20th year of life, native did high physical work, outshone others by
winning championships & suffered heavy injuries. LL has gone in the 11H of elevation
and awards, native won some awards in this year.

764
™ Ketu is accidents & injuries, Ketu is obstacles, Ketu is co-lord of 6th house of fighting
spirit & accidents, Ketu is gyanakaraka (knowledge), ketu is in 15.26 i.e. 16th year, in the
16th year all this happened potently.

™ Mars is GK (quarrels) & 6L too, Mars is in 9H of father, Mars is in 9th deg, so in the 9th
year native’s father had huge quarrels resulting in semi-split in family.

™ Lomush Rishi says that the deg of the Sun corresponding to that year one would get
great fortune to father (as Sun is karaka of father). This is the only point of Lomush
rishi that matches with our theory of co-relating karakas to degreecal years, now see Sun
is 26.51 & exalted, so in the 27th year we can say that his father had great fortune, but the
opposite was the case, though the year was the same but his father suffered heart
problem, had to undergo bi-pass operation & developed complications which ruined his
health & wealth for the next 4-5 yrs, this is since Sun is aspected by Rahu (roga) & sun is
the dispositor of moon who is close degree trine to rahu & rahu is also close deg trine to
Mer who is with Sun. Note Sun is the AK, so soul searching experience, due to this &
another incident the native went through intense hardships in this year.

™ Ven is 5L of love, Ven(DK) deg is 5.03, now apply hora sara sub method, deduct it by 30
degs of a sign, balance is 24.57=25th year, in his 25th year he fell in love with a girl & was
close to getting married to her.

™ When Will Curses Act Out: Ven is DK (woman) & Sat is amk (career) Ven is involved
in curse of spouse by being in association with Sat & aspect of Mars (Gk-
quarrels/health). This curse happens in 12H of abroad & Sat is older woman. Mars is in
the nak of Rahu which means foreigner & this mars aspects Ven-Sat. Now see Ven is at
5.03 & Sat is at 26.10, the minutes added up is only 13 min, so can be ignored if wished,
add 5+26=31st year or add Ven –5.03=6th year + Sat 26.10=27th year = 6+27=33rd year . So we
get two years to predict that either in the 31st or 33rd year the curse of spouse will happen.
The native was involved in both the years with two different women who were
foreigners, older to him & resulted in wreckage of his life & professional life (sat is
amk), native was abroad (all this happens in 12H of abroad) & resulted also in the health
of native going down very badly (Mars is GK & 6L), finally the curse acted itself out.
Mars being in Rahus nak where sarpa dosha is there, there was certain element of black
magic involved in all this drama that happened in native’s life.

™ Yoga: In the 33rd year of native’s life, he was abroad in a new job (amk) in a creative
field (5L) at a top position; we can see it with basic yoga of 5L (creative) & 9L (bhagya)
in 12H (of abroad).

™ Jup is at 18.02 – so 18th or 19th year should given an event related to Jup, Jup is 7L of
private parts & in house of darkness that cannot be seen even when Sun falls on it, Jup
is expansive in nature and above that it is placed in nakshatra of Moon (water). Jup is
12th from 6L Mars, now in the 18, 19th year native a student of Martial arts & an ardent
fan of Jackie Chan esp in those years of 1990s when Chan came out with his brand of
Comedy Kungfu, the native emulated a daring stunt of Jackie Chan on jumping on a
riding bicycle – Project A Part 1 & landed on his testicles on the seat of the bicycle,
which resulted in grave injury and Huge Swelling of the testicles for days – Jup is
expansive.

765
Example 9: S.C – ex SJC Guru
Event: Death of Father - Brain Hemorrhage during a train travel (traveling alone - at a
Hospital, far away from home) - Apr 24, 1978, early morn

Scribe was given broad range of 1972 to 1981 as the event period of Death of father and scribe
fixed it to two dates with dasas but failed maybe due to scribes lowering level of
understanding of these dasas.

Jupiter is karaka for 9H of father, Jup is 3L of Akala Mrityu for father placed in the 12th from
father and is in 23.12 degrees so 24th year or 24th /25th year something can happen to father.
His father died in 24th year plus 2 months. Ketu is headless so something to do with head can
happen and it is in 10H of fathers head, he died of brain hemorrhage.

Event 2: Brothers death - Suicide - hanging by rope; at home - Dec. 21, 1997 (44th year)

™ See D3 shows siblings, 8H in D3 shows death/ longevity of siblings, over there you see
Sun & Venus.

766
™ To keep this brief add Ven + Sun (degs of D3)=25.50 + 18.46=49.96=44th year an event will
happen in brother’s life of a grave nature (Yk +Maraca) & that is what happened he
hanged himself at home (Ven is 4L of one’s residence)

Conclusion

A fter you read the Appendix 1 (a more scholarly translation might be needed as one of
our friends did it for us years back on an informal basis and now does not wish his
name to be revealed) it would be clear to you that what we have written above is
nothing as compared to what Lomesh Rishi is suggesting, scholars need to put their mind to
this and kindly educate us the system that Lomesh Rishi is employing. If they can teach us
that or write an article on it we would be indebted and so would mentor be to them as he has
spent decades on this. Provided below in Appendix 1 is English translation and below that in
Appendix 2 the pages that we received containing the Sanskrit and Hindi translation.

Appendix 1 – English Translation from BPHS

Lomesh Rishi on Usage of Degrees in BPHS (Venkateshwar Press Edition)

T he English translation that our friend from Rajasthan had done was earlier produced
here but was deleted as one of Saptarishis Astrology’s translators Mr Veneet said
that the translation done by our friend was from Hindi to English and there was
flaws in the Hindi translation itself. He then suggested that since simultaneously SA was
getting Lomesh Samhita translated via him, this same chapter that appears in BPHS of
Venkateshwar Press is their ditto as Chapter 10 in Lomesh Samhita, the Chapter 1 to 6 has
been produced in this issue of SA. Hence in order to give as much as correct meaning of the
shlokas Veneet’s translation. If the learned find any flaws kindly correct us. Another
unstructured thought comes to one’s mind after seeing the translation of Lomash Samhita
and comparing the BPHS of Venkateshwar Press one of the first BPHS’s that have the
creators of BPHS (in the past many scholars have said it to be a compilation) created it out
of Lomash Samhita ? even if one gets BPHS in manuscript form one would find a lot of
similarity in BPHS and Lomash Samhita and it should be borne in mind that the manuscript
would normally be not more than few hundred years since regularly these texts were copied
to maintain longevity. The only reward we would want from the readers is to take each
shloka of this chapter, get to its correct meaning and implementation, test it and give us
feedback of these results via emails or write articles and show us how to use this chapter
since one finds mention of some techniques in this which has never ever come out.

The sage said: Add the amshas of Sun, Mars, Rahu and Saturn and normalize the sum. Find
the ratio of this sum (and the full life span) and use the fraction to predict the results.9
Misfortunes should be indicated at the age represented by the result. If one is obtained then
some physical pain, if four is obtained then some happiness, if six then disease connected
with the three humours, if ten then pain in the heart, if sixteen then medical remediation, if
twenty then boils in the body, if twenty four then distress in the ear, if thirty then small-pox
etc, if forty two then fear, if forty nine then fear from water, if seventy then one is affected
by spirits, if seventy three then kidnapping, if eighty then mild injuries, if ninety then
purity, if hundred then birth of son, if one hundred eight then disease, if one hundred
sixteen then marriage (in the family), if one hundred twenty then death shall happen in the
middle, beginning or end. In this way happiness and sorrows of beings is determined
depending upon the degrees of the planets.
Chandrashekhar’s comment: I think something is missing here. There does not appear to be any indication of how to obtain
the numbers for which the results are indicated. One possibility is that if we treat shara to be equal to 5 and divide the
amshas of the grahas then the modification occurs and the resultant number will show what can happen to the jataka.

Veneet’s comment: The shloka asks to add the amshas of four planets. Maximum value of the amsha of a planet can be 30.
Hence the maximum value of the sum can be 120, which is nothing but the paramayusha or full life span of human beings.
Hence the sum of the amshas, which is to be used in the calculations mentioned ahead, may directly indicate the longevity of
the native.

ु भु ं िनरीक्षयेत।् तेषां योगे िभे वा ौ बाणाः ूयतु ौ दलौ॥९॥

9 The results mentioned ahead are with respect to the full age of human beings of 120 years. As an example if the age
indicated by the sum of the amshas of the four planets is 60 then small-pox which is indicated at age 30 will actually happen in
age 60/120 * 30 = 15 of the native. This is what scaling of the ages means.

One should study good and bad results from the difference between 30 and the longitude of
the planet in the sign (see comment). Add this value of the four planets and multiply by
two. Add two and add five to get two numbers respectively even and odd. At the age one
third of them indicate injuries and misfortunes, boils in the third amsa (skipped words)
death of mother in the fourth amsa, stealth of wealth in the in second part, death of brother
in the third amsa, death of mother or maternal-relatives, in the fourth amsa, death of son in
the fifth amsha, death of enemy in the sixth amsa, death of wife in the seventh amsa, death of
the creditor in the eighth amsa, death of prabhu(?) in the ninth amsa, death of father in the
tenth amsa, loss of livelihood in the eleventh amsa and O dwija!, death of animal or enemy is
certain in the twelfth amsa.

VK: After some though I have come up with the following meaning. न्यूनांक may mean 90 (न्यून is 0 and अंक is 9) भागन्यून
may mean 30 minus the longitude since bhaga means degrees and there are 30 degrees in a sign. न्यून means difference. So
भागन्यून indicates the part of the sign remaining to be traversed by the planet.

तेषां योगे िभे वा ौ बाणाः ूयतु ौ दलौ॥९॥ पूवरौ िह भवतः समासमौ सखास
ु खौ।

Here it is asking to get two numbers – former being even and the latter being even. Then it asks to use both these numbers
for the computations indicated next.

Chandrashekhar’s comment: What is being told is that from the number of grahas that give less years of life etc. the good
and bad of the kataka is to be assessed. Add all such aMshas and divide by 2 or multiply by 10 (I think this indicates that one
should average out the life span depending on the number of planets having lesser life span giving degrees, Then in the
manner similar to what is done earlier, if the balance is even the jataka gets happiness and if odd he gets sorrow.

Death of friends, teachers and co-habitants is certain in the amsa of the ascendant, in the

769
one should indicate injuries from stones etc in the seventh amsa, in the ascendant and second
house one should indicate injuries from stones, in the third and fourth amsa one should
indicate injuries from water, in the fifth and sixth amsa one should indicate injuries from
trees, in the seventh amsa one should indicate injuries from four-footed animals or objects, in
the ninth and tenth amsa one should indicate injuries from crabs etc, in the eleventh amsa
from serpents – in this way one should indicate the results from the planets in the seventh
amsa. In the eighth amsa one shall gain friends, in the ninth amsa indicate gada, in the tenth
amsa indicate religious merits and donations, in the eleventh amsa indicate sorrows, in the
twelfth amsa indicate large expenditures, in the thirteenth amsa indicate loss of respect, in
the fourteenth amsa indicate quarrels, in the fifteenth amsa indicate robbery, in the sixteenth
amsa indicate relations with the wives of others, in the seventeenth amsa indicate restlessness
in the mind, in the eighteenth amsa indicate purity, in the nineteenth amsa indicate travels
and in the twentieth amsa indicate bondage etc.
Chandrashekhar’s comment: The shlokas of last two paragraphs also seem to miss something and that could be how to arrive
at the amshas. The shloka talks of yoga and then division by 2 etc. This must be deciphered to know what is meant here.
Veneet has done a great job and some of the other scholars may like to give their inputs so that the meaning of the shlokas
becomes clear.

mother where Saturn is placed. In this way one should indicate happiness and sorrows

Compute the difference between the degrees traversed by the two lords. Divide the degrees

the year indicated by the remainder.
CS: I think he is saying that the rasi numbers are not to be considered.
VK: The shloka is confusing since it uses thr words लब्ध and शेष seeming to imply that some division is being carried out.

The results of the planets from the ninth house upto the eighth house are now being spoken
of. The lord of the ninth house is always benefic and never cruel. It gives strength. The lord
of the fifth house is also auspicious; if it is cruel even then it grants happiness. The lords of
the third, eleventh, sixth and eighth houses give sorrows. Such planets, even if benefic, do
not give benefits in their periods or transits. Lordship of the eighth house is not malefic for
Libra and Aries ascendants. Lordship of the sixth house is not malefic for Scorpio and
Taurus ascendants.
Commentary: Natural benefics and malefics are indicated in BPHS 3.11 as follows:

ु क्षीणेराके तवः। बू राः शेषमहा सौाः बू रः बू रयतु ो बधः॥


तऽाकर् शिनभूपऽाः ु
Sun, Saturn, Mars, waning Moon, Rahu and Ketu are natural malefics. Mercury is benefic if in the company of benefics and malefic if in

772
the company of malefics. Rest (Jupiter, Venus and waxing Moon) are natural benefics.

What is being said in these shlokas is that if a natural malefic happens to own a trine, the fifth or ninth house then he does
not give malefic results. Similarly if a natural benefic happens to own the third, sixth, eighth or eleventh house then it sheds
its beneficience and gives malefic results. Additionally, ascendant being both a quadrant and a trine, its lord is always benefic
even if he owns a malefic house. This is what the last shloka indicates. For Libra and Aries ascendants the same planet owns
the first and eighth house and for Scorpio and Taurus ascendants the same planet owns the first and sixth house. Here
beneficience because of lordship of the ascendant is said to override maleficience because of lordship of a malefic house. The
case when the same planet owns the ascendant and the third house or ascendant and the elevent house does not arise in any
sign. Hence it has not been mentioned in the shlokas.

Chandrashekhar’s comment: BPHS also mentions the functional beneficence and maleficiance at length as is done by
Lomasha, but in more depth.

The houses first and second, second and third, third and fourth, fourth and fifth, fifth and
sixth, sixth and seventh, seventh and eighth, eighth and ninth, ninth and tenth, tenth and
eleventh, eleventh and twelfth, twelfth and first give rise to yogas named Pushkala Labha
(enormous gains), Rajmrityu and Amatya (death in a royal place and ministership of a king),
Daruna Karma (harsh deeds), Raja Yoga (kingly combination), Roga (disease), Priya (gain of
beloved), Mriti (death), Bhagyavyaya (loss of luck) Rajyoga (kingly combination)
Bhumidravya (wealth related to lands) Rinavyaya (expenditure of debt) Vittahani (loss of
wealth) respectively. When the lords exchange places or are placed together in the same
house or if they aspect each other fully or are in the same varga then they give rise to these
yogas. If weak then they do not give rise to these yogas. If conjoined with enemies or if weak
or if aspected or conjoined with malefics then they do not give rise to these yogas. If placed
in the twelfth, eighth, sixth or eleventh houses or if conjoined with their lords or if their
lords are in these houses then also the yoga is not created. If retrograde then also the Raja,
Amatya etc yogas are destroyed.

Preface to Secrets Of Shastiamsa

T he credit of inspiring scribe to learn about D-60 goes to 3 lines from Shri K.N. Rao in
an email reply dated Sept/Oct 04 (reproduced below) – we worked on it and
established more than 20 techniques of D-60. His mail confirmed what we had
understood in BPHS & confirmed our belief in Parasara. Then, in March/April 2005, when a
young astrologer by the name of PVR Narasimha Rao1 had entered in the territory of K.N
Rao’s Jyotish Group and gave an analysis of past life via D 60, then as a response K. N. Rao
revealed in the Jyotish Group list to P. V. R. Narasimha Rao & all what Parasara has said on
D-60: that it is not a chart for past life as was the misconception of the parampara knowledge
of Narasimha. This opened the eyes of many though anyone who has read BPHS knew it or
just did not understand it.

An honest confession is that at that time we felt” Ohh why did KNR reveal it to them/al!” We were
jealous as if something that we only knew from him was known by everyone. This jealousy was due to
functioning of the old energy and the 11:11 global spiritual event had still not set in us.

It was an email from Shri K. N. Rao to one of our team members, a mere few lines which
opened the Pandora’s box. We worked hard on it and shared with many in our private chats
– later, our Jodhpur friend said that some Gurus in the west from the Internet Parampara
who were also our friends then, and who were following D-60 for past life had now shifted
to D-60 as a normal chart. What’s unique is that we were using Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi on
D-60 and our friend Vinay Patwardhan, an ex-SJC guy, was using BCP and D-60 ‘Only’ for
2 years after we shared our methods with him and he had reported stunning results.

The article Part 1 was earlier named as ‘Movement of Kala’ and we had presented it in 2006
to BAVA (British Astrological Vedic Association) and then CVA (Council of Vedic
Astrology, America) for publication.…..

Releasing this article has been a long pending task – with each issue, we would feel guilty
that, apart from Bhrighu methods, we did not publish our old methods. Now we do so.

Note for warning is, in those days we followed analysis via the ‘complicated methods of
internet forums’ and now we no longer do so. Also, the charts would have true and even
mean nodes, now we feel more confident on true nodes though at ‘few’ times mean nodes
have given great results. On this, we have realized our mistake that astrologers’ intuition
should not be mixed from the scientific background of calculating true nodes. We have not
tried to correct the birth time and the charts are to be used only as illustrations. We dedicate
this article and great methodology to Shri K. N. Rao.

The following mail below is K. N. Rao’s response to our friend upon his request to show him
the secrets of how to use Shastiamsa as K. N. Rao has had the advantage of learning
astrology from yogis. Our friend did feel, after 2 years, that the D-60 past life theory was all
misguiding and theoretical - in fact, he learnt later in life that these days Indian writers and
Gurus offer a lot of theory on forums or in their articles as Westerners love to grab these

1
His now free software Jhora has always been used by us for chart delineations in this magazine and we are indebted to him.

781
theories and sell it in conferences or private tuitions. Indian Gurus know the American and
Modern Youth obsession for explanations and use it as a tool to fool them either to make
money or grab fame.

4 September 2004
My dear ____,
Try 9/49/21 (9 hours 49 mins 21 secs) with Mesha navamsha, Dhanu dashamansha with Venus in
the third house, Kanya Vimshamsha (D-20) and best of all Tula Shastiamsha (D-60) which shows
Tula lagna (in D-60) with fifth lord, Saturn receiving the aspect of Venus and association of Sun
giving Venusian education which is technical in nature, something like textiles, and Moon in the tenth
house giving the artistic (commercial) with technical skill provided by Mars and advisory role and
consultancy by Jupiter aspecting it.

K.N.Rao.

Words in the above email in maroon italics are ours for the readers’ understanding. The
above explanation and analysis of D-60 taking Tula Lagna and explaining the textile
education, media/bollywood career is only from the native’s D-60. One can note (if we
understood it correctly) that KNR uses the word lagna and 5L of D-60 that means he uses
houses in D-60. This is intended for those who have spent countless days discussing on
forums that K. N. Rao does not use houses in divisional charts and they claimed intimacy
with him & quoted him wrongly without properly reading his books. Also, in 2007 in a
discussion with one of the closest friends of K. N. Rao, we realised that K. N. Rao had kept
this methodology of D-60 ‘Complete Chart Delineation’ to himself and worked on it secretly
like Tithi Pravesh ,knowing full well that certain techniques when revealed can be misused
by those hungry for fame.

Warning

D o not get misguided by those who tell you that time of birth always needs to be
corrected. Most astrologers are in the herd mentality, if 5 astrologers repeat one line
it becomes a dictum and often we see in forums that everyone is correcting birth
time. This has become an obsession with westerns and now Indians to get their birth time
corrected. In the past 6-7 years of working with D60 and making numerous successful
predictions we have realised that in 95% of the cases the birth time as reported was correct.
In some cases when indications are too confusing, ascertaining the D 60 Lagna is difficult
but it will be truly not so with someone else whose basics are more stronger than ours.
Always remember that there will always be one event that will clinch the deal of the correct
Asc, looking out for that event in the client’s life is what an astrologer who is trying to
correct the D 60 must be vigilant about as that event would not be possible to explain via
any other Asc of D60. Everyone has shares of failures here is one short example of a great
American Astrologer where we failed in basics. Arudha Lagna is in the 9H of Guru and
maximum Westerners from all over the world learn Parasari and now Jaimini Astrology
from him as he is a great teacher and a humble being.

782
Today his worth has expanded to India too where his books costing Rs 2500 are still being
bought. We saw his D60 for 2 seconds and then seeing Ketu in the second house of family deity
and (even though he is an American) we asked him if he has a ‘Huge Idol of Lord Ganapathi in
his house’. He said no, he has a medium size Idol in his house plus 2 big pictures of Lord
Ganapati’. We realised we had failed and we had used the Indian word Jyaada (More) which
means anything from huge to more number in colloquial parlance here and had failed
ignoring that Saturn limits which is basics of astrology. Use mean nodes and Ketu
disappears from 2H to the 12H. Can Ketu and idols via 12H be explained ?

ThyExperiments Towards Truth


Secrets of Shastiamsa – 1
Kaala’s Movement (as written in 2006)
By
Saptarishis Astrology
Copy editor: Andree Leclerc

Part I
Exploring Kala’s Movement in Shastiamsa (D60)

T
here are many methods to use Shani’s Transit & Aspect of Shani has been used in most
novel manners in Nadi Granthas like Bhrigu Nadi & Deva Kerelam (Chandra Kala Nadi)
which are different from the traditional 3,7,10 aspect.

Legendary late astrologer Shri C.S. Patel has shown Nadi methods of Shani’s transit aspects
in many unique manners, one among them being Saturn aspecting 6, 8, 12 & 3rd houses from
its transit position. We shall limit ourselves to only 3, 7, 10 in this article.

Our write up deals with Shani & will try to achieve few things:

a) To Remove ‘subtly’ the misconception that Shani is always bad


b) Shani is also called as ‘Kaala’ or TIME as it is he who discharges Karma, good or bad.
We as astrologers deal with Time so the movement of Shani for us is most important to
watch. As the famous ‘Saharampur’ Pandit known for his secret Bhrigu Techniques

784
once said, nothing moves in anyone’s life without Shani & Jup both coming into play –
please note it can be a good or bad event.
c) Judging if Sadesati is good or bad is tough for even experienced astrologers & many
known methods fail – and some experienced astrologers have observed that for 2 people
born with same Natal Chart within a gap of 40-50 minutes of each other – one of them
experiences Sadesati & other does not. This leads us to the final divisional chart of D60
where Moon changes sign in approximately 50 minutes.

D60 or Shastiamsa, as it is called, is tough to see due to inaccurate birth times because it
changes lagna every 2 minutes although most planets do not change signs in D60 for many
hours.

The subsequent question gotten is: Should we use Divisional Transits? Have our ancient books
sanctioned it? 99% of astrologers spend lifetimes arguing that it has not been mentioned,
whereas some ‘Just Do It’ (that is just use it).

Divisional Transits
We came across a verse in Chandrakala Nadi Part 1 P.314, verse 3124 (below is translation by
Shri C.S. Patel).

Verse 3124: When Saturn transits Chandra Navamsa Rasi (Rasi represented in the natal
chart by the Moon’s occupied Navamsa Rasi) or the sign occupied by the Moon (in Natal
Chart), the native suffers from enemies, mental anguish & humiliation from secret blemish.
Note 3 words: 1) Enemies 2) Mental Anguish 3) Humiliation from Secret Blemish
Verse 2044/45: When Saturn transits the 8th from Chandra Navamsa Rasi, the native will
suffer great calamity during Rahu’s period and will have termination of some running
favorable yogaphala or yogabhanga results.
Verse 2385 talks about bad results for Saturn’s transit in the 7th from Chandra Navamsa
Rasi

Conclusion From Above Verses


1) Ancient texts sanction the use of Divisional Transits that can be strongly accepted or
loosely accepted
2) Or Ancient Texts like Chandra Kala Nadi are asking us to super impose the Divisional
Chart position on the natal chart and check transits on it.
3) The interesting part for those who use Navamsa only for Marriage Matters is they can
see that the verses do not talk about anything to do with Marriage

Chandra Navamsa Rasi cannot be ignored but, while reading the above, it struck us to integrate
the same in our vast Shastiamsa (D60) researches that we have been carrying out for some time
‘even with inaccurate birth times of 20-25 mins’.

Important
The moon sign in Shastiamsa (D60) is to be referred to as ‘Chandra Shastiamsa Rasi’ & it is
significant to note that the Moon doesn’t change sign in D60 for a period of approximately
50 minutes.

785
The Usual Suspects:

™ When it comes to the D60 chart, most ignore it using the excuse of the birth time not
always being accurate hence, most astrologers do not even go beyond D10 & the mental
block continues for lifetimes.
™ Of late, D60 has became popular to see for Past (Previous) Life Karma1
™ BPHS (Chp 7, shlokas 1-8) gives clear instructions on the exact usage of D60; to limit its
usage to see the previous life of a native is limiting the astrology of Parasara. Sage uses
् everything is indicated for D45 and D60
the word षायंशऽे िखलमीक्षयेत।-

Methodology in this Write Up


™ Ignore the Lagna of D60 (for now) & just note down the sign position of Moon in D60
(Shastiamsa)
™ See Sign of Tr (Transit) Sat in Rasi (natal) & superimpose it on D60 vis-à-vis
Shastiamsa Moon
™ Sat in houses 12, 1, 2 from Moon, or 4th & 8th from Moon is considered bad (though not
always) but can also given spectacular rise as Shani is ‘Time Personified’
™ Divisional SAV & BAV of Moon – Sat is important to map any transits but it can only
be depended at the rate of 75% & is not the end all
™ Note this statement from an old astrologer ‘Saturn is a Old Courier Man who carries the
letters (containing past karmas – good or bad) & where he stations (houses) he drops
those letters
™ D60 lagna changes every 2 minutes approximately & that’s one of the reasons its value is
highest – while at the same time being a big deterrent for even seasoned astrologers to
use it. But, we will see that even without the correct Asc, we can get some clues with Sat
Tr in respect to D60 Moon to interpret results profitably.

Note: (those who do not believe in Ascendant of a divisional chart or authenticity of exact time can
ignore the house explanations)

Let us study some charts to see if during these transits the natives went through bad times or
good times.

Example 1: Tony Blair (Rodden’s Rating AA)

1Previous life cum Future life of native can be clearly seen in D1 if one knows how to see it & the exact detailed
methodology is lost or many techniques exist with the astrological community divided over it.

786
Event 1: 19th Oct 2003 – heart problems

™ On Oct 2003, Sat was in Gemini. Sat was in the 6th from Moon (Chandra Shastiamsa Rasi)
indicating health issues
™ Now superimpose this in D60 chart where Tr Sat comes into the 3H and looks at the 5H
of heart & Leo (heart) sign also & directly at the 5L Sun himself
™ It was noted as some minor problem though other doctors said it was serious
™ Tr Jup in 5H of heart & aspecting the natal D60 Sun as 5L saved him.
™ Lastly, Tr Sat in D60 SAV has 29 bindus

Event 2: 1st May 1997 elected British PM

™ Tr Saturn is in Pisces, 3rd from Chandra Shastiamsa Rasi


™ Tr Jup is in his 10H of career right on his D60 Moon sign & Sat aspects the 2H of
Administration & 5L Sun is in the 9H of Kingdom
™ Tr Sat has 33 bindus in D60 SAV, in Moon BAV 3 points and in Sat BAV of D60, it is
transiting over 6 bindus which is very high. Sat shows masses.

Event 3: 2005-2006 – Problems & disloyalty

™ Tr Sat in Cancer, 7th from Moon, is in the 4H of parliamentary career so 4H (homeland)


matters will shake (London train bomb episode) & so will his parliamentary career (4H)
™ Tr Sat also aspecting LL (self) & 8L of downfall, Mars, & 4 L Moon. Most importantly,
Tr Sat occurs on D60 natal Sat - time for major changes in career.
™ D60 SAV 28 (average) with zero shodita points, Moon D60 BAV 4 bindus & Sat BAV
only 3 – three points will show unpopularity with the Masses (for Sat)

Event 4: Nov 06 onwards

787
™ Tr Sat is in Leo, 8th from his Moon, causing Astham Sani & in 5H of power/seat which
will also be effected since there is GL (Power, Fame, etc.) causing defame thereby
effecting all these significations and resulting in loss of it to a certain extent, showing
problems with the Law/Govt of a country as it is in sign Leo (Govt) and in trine to Sun
the 5L.
™ D60 SAV is only 28, Moon BAV 3 & Sat BAV only 2 (very little contact with the
masses)

Example 2: Prince Charles

As the aim of this article is not to establish the correctness of the D60 Lagna & due to
shortage of space, we shall look at only one chart as an example showing ‘How to See a D60
Chart’ in its entirety (though not detailed here).

D60 Short Analysis of Prince Charles

a) Lagna is occupied by 4L Ven (female) so the self will be dominated by the Mother &
the native will love women (numerous affairs). With LL (self) with 5L (interests) in
12H of charity, he could be involved with lot of charity.

b) 5L of education Mars in the 12H of abroad would mean some education abroad (he did 2
terms in Australia)
c) 6L of accidents Jup is debilitated in the 7H in sign Cap (the 10H of Kaalapurusha
signifying knees) so problem with knees can be seen with aspect of Mars (knife/speed) –
and in 1998, he underwent surgery (Mars) to repair knee cartilage. Mars aspecting the 6H
will give accidents while doing speeding activities – in 2001 he fell from horse and broke a
bone.
d) 7L in 2H (8th from it) with Sun – see that Sat & Sun do not get along so, won’t get along
in marriage & it would break. Merc in the 7H would create frigidity in marriage & extra
marital affairs (Mer) and both Diana and Charles confessed to this.

788
e) Rahu in the 9H will give lots of foreign travel & an attraction to foreign religions or
support of them (he favors Dalai Lamas struggle)
f) Love (5L) in the 12H uniting with self (LL) Moon will indicate many things like love in
one’s life will come from a previous life with a very deep pending karma attached to it or
that his real love will manifest after someone’s death (12H is house of exit) and only after
Diana (5L) died they could unite ---
g) 7L Sat is in the 2H with Sun, so one person in the family is a Miser and/or the family is a
fallen family from position; the native’s 1st wife won’t get along with a family member or it
could even be 2nd wife (8th from 7th – some take 11H for 2nd marriage too) who won’t get
along with Mother (11th from 4H and 2nd from 4L).

One can go on and on but someone’s personal tragedies are only a case study for astrologers.
The Chart with Cancer D60 Lagna sounds so far correct.

Event 1: Wikipedia says: By 1992, it was obvious that the marriage (with Diana) was over in
all but name…

™ Tr Sat is in Cp, 8th from D60 Moon in the 7H of marriage


™ Tr Sat in the 7H of marriage creating separation (Sat is separative) between partners &
as it is happening in the 7H of public platform, it means public will know it
™ D60 SAV is 20 (very low) & Shodita SAV doesn’t support it with only Zero points; and
with Sat BAV being only 1 point, this was not popular with the masses (Sat)

Event 2: 28th Aug 1996 divorce with Diana

™ We need to stress again that Sat in 10th from Moon or aspecting 10H from Moon is indicative of
MAJOR events
™ Tr Sat ® in Pisces, 10th from Moon indicates significant events
™ When Sat will retrograde, it will look reverse (ref. Bipin Behari) at his 7H with his 3rd
aspect and there sits Jup (DK) – Sat is separative
™ Tr Sat in 9H of institution/religious things like marriage – Sat in 9H would break the
Institution that was bonded by religious ceremonious thread
™ Bhrigu Method is to see a planet’s effects from the previous house Too if a planet is
retrograde
™ Tr Sat in 8H will aspect the 7H of marriage & 8H of scandals/bad name – what stars
earlier promised is full filled now
™ Sat Retro seen from the 8H would break the marriage, as it causes Sadesati to 7H & 8H
which shows sustenance of marriage; D60 SAV of 8H has 21 bindus only whereas the
9H has 30 bindus

Event 3: 9th Apr 2005 marriage with Camilla Parker

™ Tr Sat in Ge, 1st from Moon & in 12H of D60 – should this be treated like a usual bad
transit or a delivery of Karma on self (LL)
™ In 12H, Tr Sat (7L) & Jup bless 9H of union. Tr Sat (Kaala- Time) unites/activates self
(Moon LL) & Love (Mars 5L). The whole drama being played in the 12H would show
undue delay or changes even the last minutes before marriage or someone's death (12H or

789
8H if involved) – the Pope’s death delayed by few days & Diana's death delayed by few
years the supposedly Twin Flames from uniting.
™ D60 SAV has strong 33 bindus & Shodita has 12 which is very strong supporting the
event; in BAV of Sat it has 5 bindus, again very strong.

Example 3: Top Post in Media

This native held a topmost post in one of the biggest media houses in India. In such
positions, has to do less work & engaging more in corporate games. Unfortunately & once
our luck runs out, Lord Shani becomes free to strike.

Event: In Sept 2001, the native was shown the pink slip and till date has not risen to the
glorious influential position he once commanded.

™ Tr Sat in Sept 01 in Ta, 7th from Moon (D60) who is 8L in D60 & debilitated
™ Tr Sat is in the 6H of service & Sat is 3L of change of service (6th from 10H); it is also on
6L Ven (native is in the TV field). Sat activated the 8H of downfall, 12H of abroad & 3H
of change of job cum travel
™ Native resigned on his own (corporate form of pink slip) & shifted abroad with family
immediately
™ D60 Sat with 26 SAV & zero Shodita, SAV added to it but didn’t cause major upheaval
by maintaining dignity (BAV of Sat has 5 bindus)

Example 4: Divorce – March 05

790
™ Mars 2L of family in D1 is in Mrityubhaga. Meanwhile, in D60, Jup 2L of family is
debilitated in the house of loss – both charts indicate some loss of family (not touching
D9 due to want of space)
™ 7H has Gulika & Mandi, poison will flow out of it giving tensions; D60 Pramaana
Gulika dispositor is Saturn (note this in mind); 7L is Sun is debilitated in the 9H of
institution (religious ceremonies of life) & Blessings of Gods aspected by debilitated Sat
(with UL) from 3H of free will or own act happening in the 6/12 axis from AL indicating
the nature of the event.
™ Do not forget Sc Rahu with debilitated Moon in 10h of sukha of marriage.
™ He says ‘ I seeked advice from top astrologers who said divorce wouldn’t happen’, scribe
wonders if they saw D60 of the native too. Recently on famous internet lists, top
astrologers are rectifying his chart by changing his birth time which, according to
scribe’s humble opinion, is not needed at all if we follow what Parasara said on how to
see D60. But since only 1 event of the native’s life is known, it is tough to rectify D60 –
especially chart rectification shouldn’t be started with marriage as it would be most
disastrous.
™ Now see Tr in Mar 05, Sat ® was in Ge in 8th from Moon causing Ashtam Sani & in 5H
of D60 causing separation in romance of marriage, plus aspecting the 2H of family & 7H
of marriage
™ Sat is separative & if Bhrigu’s Method is used, then Tr Sat being Retro would be in the
4H of happiness aspecting the 6H of separation or legal divorce
™ D60 SAV of the 5H has 31 points ‘BUT’ in the previous house, 4H SAV is poorest at
only 25 bindus – explaining why Bhrigu Nadi method cannot be ignored.

Example 5: Sonia Gandhi

791
Very Short D60 Analysis
The reason this chart is explained here is that months were spent on internet lists discussing
the correct time of Sonia Gandhi’s birth.

™ 7L Moon in Cp with Sat, husband could be connected to the masses (Sat Moon) & in 2H
Mars, the bomb, is sitting in an enemy’s house and aspected by Rahu (terrorist) from the
6H while 12L Jup aspects from the 8H of Sudden End who is also 3L of short travel –
Rajiv was campaigning then.
™ 10h is the mother-in-law (Indira) & Ven is in Malavaya Yoga with AL (mother-in-law
should be a famous person) aspected by Rahu, known for her fighting spirit.
™ 5L of romance in Mahapurusha yoga in Kendra to self (Sat) & 7L Moon shows their
(Rajiv-Sonia) Soul Mate Love for each other as reported by the press.
™ 9H is the house of younger brother of husband (3rd from 7H); the sign is Virgo aspected
by maraka Mars, Virgo’s lord is Mer in a Venusian sign (the hint is clear as to who he
was) aspected by Sun (Sanjay Gandhi was known for his firebrand nature). 8th from Mer
(lord for younger brother) will show his death – there exalted Ketu sits in the 12H of exit
in the sign of Sagittarius, a fiery sign : the plane crashed and went up in smoke.

Event 1: Mother in law, Indira Gandhi's Death on 31st Oct 1984

™ Tr Sat in Libra, 10th from the Moon indicates Dramatic Change Time
™ Tr Sat (maraka lord) in 10H of mother-in-law & on Ven the 10L
™ D60 SAV is 27 (low), Moon & Sat BAV in D60 are only 2 for both – that’s very bad
™ Observe Tr Sat with Tr Sun & Tr Mer – see the lordships of Sun & Mer from lagna &
also from the 10H of mother-in-law – and the picture is clearer
™ Tr Rahu in the 8th from the 10H shows that there is something Sudden (Rahu) &
Terrorist (Rahu) awaiting the mother-in-law. Rahu is a maraka co-lord too.

Event 2: Rajiv Gandhi Assassinated on 21st May 1991

792
™ Tr Sat® in Cp on natal Chandra Shastiamsa Rasi & also 7L Moon
™ Tr Sat ® (maraka lord) in 1H aspecting the 7H of husband & on the 7L Moon (he was
known as the soft one) & Hara (end) lord Mars (11L) in the 7H with 12L of exit Jup by
Tr. Something surely has to happen to the husband or their marriage or the children as
Tr Sat ® aspect on the 10H where the 5L is posited shows that children would be affected
badly
™ At the end, husband and marriage both were over & the children were obviously effected
™ One can see the position of Tr Rahu from the 7H of husband to know who the culprit
was
™ SAV is only 27 in D60 & Shodita has dropped drastically to Zero

Event 3: 18th May 2004 declined from becoming Prime Minister

™ Tr Sat is in Ge in the 6H of D60 chart, 3rd from Moon – both good places by Tr i.e. from
Moon & Lagna for Saturn
™ D60 SAV is 33 (very high) in 6H indicating the defeat of enemies possibility, BAV of
D60 Moon is a whopping 7 & Sat BAV is 6, the masses were with her
™ When she declined to be PM, her supporters tried committing suicide – her victory was
a slap to the opposition party BJP & was incomprehensible

Event 4: 2005-2006 had to resign from Parliament, continuous Mud Slinging on her &
Revenge Time

™ Tr Sat in Cancer, the 7th from Shastiamsa Chandra Rasi & also the 7H of relations
spoiled her relations with some loyalists & frontal attacks by Opposition
™ Accusations were hurled at her, post of profit issues – she resigned and won the elections
again
™ One of the toughest times for native one could say, with poor performance of her Govt
& Chief Ministers

Example 6: Amitabh Bachchan, Most Famous Man of the Millennium – BBC Polls

Event 1: Fatal Accident in Film shooting that moved millions to pray for him as he was
fighting death – July 1982

™ Tr Sat with Tr 12L Mars in Virgo – in the 4th from D60 Moon causes Ardha Shani in the
5H of fame while also aspecting the 6L of accidents Ven & LL (self)
™ Tr Sat & Mars both aspect the 11H (Hara – 6th from 6th of accidents) & natal Mars placed
in the maraka 2H along with Karma of accidents, 3L Moon
™ Please note Mars Tr in 4H from Moon results in stomach problems (Phaladeepika
Chapter 26) & he was HIT IN THE STOMACH damaging internal organs there
™ D60 SAV has 21 points in Vi where Tr Sat & Mars are and also Mars BAV of D60 has
only 1 point. Indeed a time to fight for life.

793
The usual mistake by astro enthusiasts is that whenever we read a method in articles,
we apply it as the SOLE criteria, whereas the particular author might be trying to
demonstrate the method in a way to make stand out the principles he is trying to explain.
Another factor is to apply the above method to it’s fullest; other factors of D60 have to be
taken into account which deserve much wider space, for transits cannot be above dasas. Even
if one’s D60 lagna is not accurate, we can apply this profitably by only seeing its position
from the D60 Moon (without using SAV) and see some meaning to it – and it becomes one
More Tool in our arsenal of Tools that we’ll refine with continuous usage of it.

As one old Master once said to scribe ‘Complex methods are just a state of the mind, an innocent
(Jup) student of this science will understand it easily & profitably, whereas an advanced biased
student might never’ is what this scribe ends this paper with as yet, I have to understand what
he said in its entirety. His parting words were ‘U have been given the highest Key for
learning astrology in that statement Beta (son).

The credit of inspiring scribe to learn about D60 goes to 3 lines from Shri K.N. Rao in an
email reply dated Oct 04, we worked on it and established more than 20 techniques of D60.

SJC Gurus D-60 Analysis via BCP

The following as an analysis done via email to an SJC Guru from America who had
provided some of his life events earlier.

These are the comments on your D 60

1. If Capricorn Asc is correct, LL Saturn is in the 8H of occult with 9L in the 8H


(change of religion or religious beliefs) along with Venus the 10L of Karma, so your
karma was and is in fields of the occult and religion. In the dasa of Saturn/Venus
(ruler of the 5H of mantra) there has to be transformation as both Saturn Venus are in
the 8H of occult and transformation sitting with Mer (Vishnu), the dispositor of this
being in the 12H of abroad. You traveled and joined Guru’s ashram (9L is Mer with
Saturn Venus) and got diksha of mantra. Venus the AD is 5L of mantra aspected by

795
Mars from the 5H and this 8H has A5. Ketu the planet of Spirituality was in transit in
your 8H during June 5, 1970 and in your own words “I Received Hari Nam Diksa from
my guru - Age 23”. Age 23 would mean the 11H of the chart as per BCP & in the 11H
Jupiter (Guru) is placed and its lord Mars is in the 5H of mantra so you got mantra.

SJC Guru: Yes, everything is very good so far. Age 23 was the most important year of my
life, given the meeting with my guru and receiving Diksha from him. This, by the way, was
very, very disconcerting and difficult for my mother, as she had no idea who Hare Krsna’s
were, and thought I had gone mad. See Jupiter/Sc in the 8th from Moon, with both rulers of Sc
having Papa-kartari with 4th house and Moon.

2. Jup is in the 11H of jyotisha making you an astrologer apart from 10L in the 8H which
is one (not necessary) of the combinations for astrologers along with Rahu in the 9H
for foreign influences. The karakatwa of Jupiter is Guru and, as it is in your 11H, it is
Jyotish Guru – this Jupiter is the 3L of writing and 12L of spirituality aspecting the 5H
of authorship where 11L of Jyotish, Mars, is sitting causing Guru mangal Yoga. As Jup
is in the 11H, the ages of 47 and 59 (as per BCP) give something to do with Jyotish
writing and authorship and spirituality and you wrote: “October 5, 2005: Book on __
dasa was released”. The book on __ dasa was on spirituality but since Mars is
aspecting this 11H of 59th year, there has to be some jealousy involved and some
blockage. To be noted: the sign of Jupiter is Sc – of the occult. The Chara dasa of
KNR was Cancer Dasa. 5th from there is Jupiter making you an author – and during this
Cancer dasa, you would become a bigger Guru since Jupiter is the 9L sitting in the 5H
from Cn Dasa, also making you a sishya and making you meet your guru. The only
unfortunate thing is this Jupiter is aspected by Rahu (remember the article I wrote on
Rahu implements itself in the 3rd from it Vol 2 or 3) and it is unfortunate that
whenever you become a guru or get a guru, some cheating or bad name will happen
eventually (I am using true nodes, but if mean nodes were used, then Rahu will be
conjunct Jup which explains it easily I presume). Jupiter in the 11H, jyotish or guru
can become a badha (big obstacle) in life at some stage.

SJC Guru: This actually happened in the earlier two rounds, i.e. in the 47th year, and earlier
than that, in the 35th year. In the 35th year (again 11H as per BCP where Jup the priest is
placed) I became the head Pujari at the Seattle temple of ISKCON, and as a result had to deal
with jealousy and anger from one of the leaders in that temple. I persevered in spite of it. In
the 47th year (11H as per BCP), I started teaching Jyotish and that aroused envy from a well-
known local Jyotishi who lived in Seattle at that time (still does). So in this ways, Mars’
influence showed itself strongly in those years. The latter effect also continued in the following
year too, i.e. 48th.

3. Sun is in the 12H so something to do with 12H matters would have happened in the
25th year, please see if it happened. Any feedback would be nice

SJC Guru: Yes, during the 25th year – right at the beginning of it in fact – my guru asked me
and 4 other brahmacaris to go to Salt Lake City and open a temple there. This was a difficult
task, as I was still a new devotee, and we had to go two states over from where I was (LA,
California). That was a tough year, as the winter in 1970 was extremely harsh and we chanted
Hari Nam in the streets every day in spite of the cold. At first there was no place to stay, and

796
we stayed in the homes of sympathetic people. Finally we got our own building and started a
temple (SUN)!

4. An event regarding your mother or 4/5H in the 32nd year

SJC Guru: I don’t remember anything specific. Then again, I was not in touch with my
mother at that time, having renounced family.

5. May 20, 1989: Left temple life for good and started supporting myself doing Jyotish
readings - Age 42, this would mean the 6H: its lord Mercury is in the 8H of
transformation along with the 10L of karma and 2L of vocation so something new
started in your life related to Mer (9L of dharma) and 2nd series of your dharma
started.

SJC Guru: In the following year (43rd), which began 9/18/1989, a significant relationship
started, and this corresponds to the 7th house/Cancer. Cn and its 7th are aspected by DK as
well as natal 7th lord Mars. This, however, did not last more than 6 months. See 12th lord
Jupiter aspecting 7th lord, and also Bandana yoga forming onto the 7th house by Mars and Rahu.

6. March 12, 1986: Started illicit affair while still pujari in the temple - this lasted a year
and 1/2 - Age 39 – this would be the 3H where Ketu (mistake) and AL (image) is
placed and its lord Jupiter is in the sign of Sc (sex scandal) and in the 11H of wife
(woman) and Jyotish. This relationship would eventually lead you to Jyotish I guess,
think you mentioned that earlier, many years back to me. Ketu the 39th year is in the
3H of new karma opposite the 9H of temple and aspected by Rahu (scandal) – you
mentioned that this lasted 1.5 years which makes it 40th year where Moon (one’s
name) and A8 (scandal and sex) is placed in the 4H of ones prestige, causing some
scandal. The woman must have been feminine I presume.

SJC Guru: Not sure what you mean by “woman must have been feminine”. She was very
beautiful, if that is what you mean. Anyway, up until that time she worked in the Deity
department of the temple and we became friends. At the time, Saturn transited Scorpio, which
is where DK and lord of Pisces is placed.

7. July 3, 1994: Met Sri K.N. Rao and Jyotish reached a new level as a result - Age 47 –
this would be the 11H of Jyotish as per BCP where Jupiter (Guru) is sitting who is 3L
of travel and 12L of abroad. K. N. Rao traveled from abroad (to where you were
placed) and you met him and this changed your life since 3L is the house of unlocking
of Karma (mentioned this in the previous editorial Vol 6 or 7). You should have stuck
to K. N. Rao as this was Jupiter’s 4th round – the result would have gone into the 8H
and he might have unraveled quite a few secrets, especially since you have the
intelligence to understand.

SJC Guru: What do you mean “this was Jupiter’s 4th round, the result would have gone into
the 8thH? But yes, in retrospect I feel that I got distracted when I joined the parampara. Now I
am back to using all of KN Rao’s techniques, especially with regard to Jaimini, and it is
working wonderfully well.

797
8. January 1, 1995: Started relationship with ___ at - Age 48 – it is 12H of bed pleasures as
per BCP and 8L of sex, Sun, is sitting there and this is a very very past life karma for
you.

SJC Guru: It was also the Chara dasa of Ar/Sg, Aries being 7th from lagna, and Sg being 7th
from 7th lord and UL. Me/Ju/Ma Vimsottari dasa was very appropriate. On this date, when
we consummated the relationship, transit Venus was in the exact degree conjunction of DK
Jupiter.

9. March 16, 2005: Life-threatening illness started: I was sick until July that year –
almost died - Age 58 –
See Age 58 would be 10H where A6 (disease) is sitting and its lord Venus has gone in
the 8H of chronic diseases – remember in last issue I revealed a Bhrighu Technique:
where Venus sits one has to spend on diseases/health issues; using that with BCP, the
lord of the 58 year has become Venus so you spend on disease and it being in the 8H,
it would be chronic and concerning your longevity (since 8H is house of longevity as
you know and you wrote that you almost died).

SJC Guru: This was a very bad situation, as not only was I deafly ill, but I started to have
serious problems in my relationship with Dana also. Transits of nodes + Saturn all converged
strongly onto the natal 7th lord which is also the AK at this time.

10. 7L is Moon sitting with A8 (bad) and 6th from it is Rahu – the 6H is the natural house
of black magic and Rahu is spirits. This Rahu from spouse 7L Moon becomes badha
and also 6H is the house of badha. Around age of 62 (2nd house) the spirit problem
would have enhanced as Rahu lord of Aq sits in the 6th of badha of 7L of wife.

SJC Guru: It actually started getting really bad the year before when the dasa rasi was in the
12th house. There you see Venus’ dispositor in the 12th aspected by nodes + Mars also. There
were some very unhappy events, crises in fact, which became very intense in the summer of
2007. This indeed continued to be bad in 2008. Now, recently this has become even worse, now
with Rx Saturn transiting on natal lagna lord Venus. There are, however, good signs as of
today. Yesterday she went into a new Tithi Pravesh year and which is altogether better than it
was in the previous two years. So already improvements are being felt and I am thankful for
it. Still, she is unstable, but becoming more desirous of approaching God for shelter.

11. Based on our article presumably titled ‘Timing Kala’ written few years ago on D60
and sent to ACVA and BAVA to be published there we used that same technique and
asked the chart holder what happened when Tr Saturn around 17 Ar 27 transited the
Moons degree in D60 (earlier only one software, Goravani, used to give (years back) and
now Jhora also gives this option of degrees in Shastiamsa – obviously this is a hypothetical
degree and not the actual degree of planet). Moon is with A8 (occult) and it is the 7L of
PadaPrapthi (Public Platform and Status) & 7L of wife/partner. The lord of Moon is
Mars and goes in the 5H of fame in D60 and is aspected by Jupiter (being Guru).

"Also when Saturn was at 17Ar 27 what happened in your life"?

798
SJC Guru: This occurred on 2/14/2000, and I was in the Ketu MD and Moon AD (Vim.). It
was in this month/year that I travelled to Sedona, AZ for the ACVA conference and gave a
lecture there. I was also a guest speaker at a workshop on spirituality at the same conference,
as a result of which I gained great ground in reputation as a "spiritual" astrologer. My wife
also met me in Sedona afterward, and we had a vacation. Shortly thereafter, however, in May,
2000, I declared bankruptcy. (note A8)

Secrets of Shastiamsa – 111
D 60 & BCP cum BSP
By
Saptarishis Astrology
Copy editor: Andree Leclerc

The following mail was sent on one of the forums.

Dear Visti, all SJC Gurus and learned members, namaste. Please, kindly clarify the question bellow.

As Maharishi Parashara says, D-60 is everything. I wanted to know more about this subject.

This question arose while studying my own Shastyamsa: if I pick Lahiri Ayanamsa, Ketu would be in
twelfth house Mithuna sign with Guru, Sani and Surya. On the other hand, if I chose Jagannatha
ayanamsa, Ketu would be in Karka (Which is the lagna) and fifth from AL.

Knowing how the curse (of twelfth house) would work on this life and how to make it at least a little
bit less painful if possible is very important, right? With Lahiri ayanamsa, the nodes would take part
on the curse in the twelfth house. With Jagannatha, it is different, as the nodes would change position
to other signs and Rahu and Mars would be affecting Moon.

Please, clarify: which ayanamsa to chose, and based on which judgment should we do so? The results
from picking one or another would differ much in many vargas and ultimately could mislead the
astrologer in applying the right remedy for each situation. Should we choose the ayanamsa based on
intuition, or the tradition is the final word on which one should be chosen?

Best wishes,

Rap

The following is a discussion on chat with an astrologer from Brazil. It is presented in chat
form and shows our approach and also its vulnerability. Readers can use various ayanamsas
and check his D 60, play with his Ketu with the ayanamsas and see the significations of Ketu
which means obstacles, fights, hosting ones flag, who shows non attachment or not direct
relation (use it with his sisters) who is with A6 (fights) and see the clues on how we found
out if his D60 is correct.

SA: Hi
Ra Si: hi there
SA: this is with reference to your mail on Sri Jagannatha forum, I seem to have done some
work on D60 since 2004 and wanted your chart details if its ok with you, the message posted
did not contain DOB
Ra Si: oh sure, it'll be of great help, thanks
SA: most welcome
Ra Si: i was born in 09/02/82
SA: is it 9th Feb 1982?
Ra Si: yes
SA: Time, location and country
Ra Si: 07:00:10, Brasilia/ Brazil at 2:07:00:10 am

801
SA: what is the 10 seconds ? in the time of birth
Ra Si: this tob i found by rectification
SA: no, no rectification please
SA: what is there in your birth certificate
Ra Si: ok, 7:00:00
SA: oh ok thanks
Ra Si: ten seconds changed the D-24 chart
SA: Sir you would be male female (for dasas)
Ra Si: male
SA: there are many latitudes & longitudes - which one should I take please guide
Ra Si: 47w54 / 15s47
SA: time zone too
Ra Si: time zone 3
SA: ok please hang on I will check in other softwares too
Ra Si: ok
SA: Jhora gives 1 time zone ?
Ra Si: its wrong, its 3 time zone
SA: in which name should I save the chart (full name please if possible)
Ra Si: u should save the chart as Raphael Silva
SA: next to Brasilia, I get Acre, another option Maranhao and many others. Which state
would it be?
Ra Si: its Brasilia DF
SA: distrito federal
Ra Si: yes
SA: got it
SA: 8 Aq 42 Asc?
Ra Si: yes – you see, ten seconds later would fit better on D-24 chart and also fits on kunda principles
SA: kunda principles do not work; I am sure you are told that by experienced astrologers,
meaning if you are using kunda for birth time rectification
SA: re D24 let’s see
Ra Si: ok
SA: your Navamsa lagna is Sagi ?
Ra Si: yes
SA: D-60 lagna is Cancer ?
Ra Si: yes
SA: do you have younger brothers sisters?
Ra Si: yes, both
SA: do you get along with them ?
Ra Si: but sisters are just related by father – I'm not close to sisters and have some kind of enmity
towards my brother. Sisters live in another city
SA: so Ketu is in the 3H of siblings in D-60 is confirmed
Ra Si: well, I love my brother
Ra Si: Ketu in D-60?
SA: you said earlier you got enmity towards your brother ?
Ra Si: we have lots of arguments but I don’t hate him or anything like that – I just get too angry at
him
SA: that’s ok. Anyone of them having any Mercury related problems? Like skin diseases or
too Mercurial in nature – or some accident happened to them

802
Ra Si: ok, they don't have skin disease as far as I know. From Jhora I see Ketu as being in Gemini
twelfth house? Oh ok, you see rashi dhristi from there
SA: no, I am using True nodes in D-60 (at times mean nodes work) but mainly true nodes
work far better – with true nodes Ketu should be in the 3H in D-60
Ra Si: ok
SA: Rahu should be in the 9H of higher vidya (knowledge) and that should give you either
learning of some knowledge that is foreign to you (Rahu) or a foreign Guru kinds
Ra Si: in this life?
SA: yes, this life. Did you do any technical education? I see some problem regarding father
on a broad sense
Ra Si: I study social history at master's degree level – Yes, u see right
SA: ooh history… Is it related to war and fights and struggles (I do not know meaning of
social history)
Ra Si: hmm, it’s a pretty broad field of history – you can say I started studying it to understand about
my own identity
SA: at the age of 25 anything happened concerning 12 H matters? (in D-60) 1
Ra Si: well, I felt like a huge weight was taken of my shoulders – my first relationship ended
SA: in your 25th year?
Ra Si: yes, and I started searching for spirituality
SA: please wait
Ra Si: ok
SA: 25th year would be Feb 2006 to Feb 2007, so did that spirituality search start during this
period ?
Ra Si: yes, it increased in this period
SA: when did it start?
Ra Si: I think I broke up with the first spouse in 2005 not 2006 – then it was a year being single
SA: ok. When did the spirituality search start
Ra Si: I think in 2005 up till now – it was not so much like now
SA: in 2005 after Feb 2005?
Ra Si: yes, certainly but I wanted to know more about philosophy and things like that; the nature of
men, etc
SA: when did God start?
Ra Si: 2008
SA: it’s the key to your D60
Ra Si: end of 2008 I started searching for Him – since I started learning Jyotish
SA: bang on your Ketu is in the 3H confirmed
SA: end of 2008 means your 27th year which means 3H of your chart and in 3H there is Ketu
(spirituality real one) and also Jyotish since Mer Ketu are there. In 25th year I see some
Peeda (internal strife), Sun (soul) is activated and suffering (Saturn) and internal search, 9L
in 12H
Ra Si: nice, it fits a lot
SA: 28th or 29th year I see some women related activity or education activity strongly. Let
me see your age now – you are in your 29th year now
Ra Si: 28th sir – 28th to 29

1
The method by which 25th year was arrived at was seeing Sun in the 12H, what we remember vaguely is one BSP method
not yet written which was where Sun sits, it implements itself in the 25 th year. While editing this article we tried to locate it
from our notes but could not find it.

803
SA: but in 28th year since there is A8 I see a lot of occult (Jyotish) activity
Ra Si: I got it
SA: 28th year what u got?
Ra Si: I understand what u say of me being in 29th year
SA: ohh ok – it’s the Nadi way, that’s how it is calculated
Ra Si: ok
SA: 25th year something to do with wife or children? 25th year lord is in the 5H and
retrograde hence it could be a year of mental turmoil. I can be wrong2
Ra Si: hmm… I met my actual wife when I was 24 years
SA: 24th year running?
Ra Si: yes
SA: that means Feb 2005 to Feb 2006 ?
Ra Si: I met her in 2006
SA: month?
Ra Si: May 2006
SA: that is not 24th year but 25th year
Ra Si: ok
SA: reproducing what I wrote above, that’s how it is calculated. 25th year something to do
with wife or children?
Ra Si: oh yes, indeed.
SA: since 25th year is 1H and its lord Moon is in the 11H of wife and children and it is
aspected by Venus from the 5H
SA: is she round faced or calm composition, am trying to assess how much the Moon is
spoilt by Venus retrogression or not – or is she motherly?
Ra Si: she's very hot minded in disposition
SA: Moon being with Neptune could give fleeting thoughts
Ra Si: but yet she's motherly in nature – but she complains on that
SA: ooh so Venus being the dispositor of Mars aspecting this Moon has done it, I was
hoping it did not
Ra Si: it's not an issue; we can get along well most of times
SA: that’s nice, we must be thankful to God for the good things he has given. Well my job is
done, your Asc is Cancer in D-60 there is no doubt about it
Ra Si: do you see curse in 12th house? And I didn’t know it was possible to see such things on D-60
SA: D-60 is the chart of past, present and future
Ra Si: it’s great sir
SA: what was not possible to see in D-60?
Ra Si: I thought it was related to previous birth (AL) and the embodiment of all life you passed
through (Lagna itself) but I didn’t know it would have such weightage in prediction as you showed
SA: the above statement is difficult for me to comprehend as it sounds a lot of theorization
if you don’t mind me saying
SA: K. N. Rao has done phenomenal work on D-60 some decades back when no one was
even looking at D-60. Full life predictions can be done via D-60 dear Raphael
Ra Si: that's very nice to know, will keep that in mind
Ra Si: sir, mind asking you
SA: your 30th year would be a very important year

2
25th year lord as per BCP would be the 1H whose Lord is Moon, the sentence is erroneous by us in the chat as Asc Lord is in
the 11H and not in the 5H. – SA Editor

804
Ra Si: related to spirituality?
SA: 30, 31, 32, 33. Lot of changes, lots and lots in all areas
Ra Si: maybe I’ll have a kid by then? I think a kid would trigger many changes
SA: yup a kid does. You wrote mind asking you ? What did u want to ask? Please ask as I
will have to take your leave in few minutes
Ra Si: do u see if I have any chances of learning more on Jyotish? And if my previous assumption that
I studied it in previous life is correct
SA: an advice I give to everyone when they ask this question is not to do more Jyotish – its
not good for everyone except a select few and householders should generally avoid is my
honest advice
Ra Si: ic
SA: the problem is your D-60 shouts loud on spirituality and occult so I can’t stop u (nor do
we try to change Karma): 9L in 12H with Sun and Saturn; in D1 u see 11th lord of Jyotish in the
9H
Ra Si: do u think if I further on it I could leave my family or something like that?
SA: please do not ask that
Ra Si: ok
Ra Si: yes, depending on the answer
SA: I wish you well but do not worry about if you did Jyotish in previous life from D-60 –
it’s not easy to see that from Rasi or D-60, all else is theorization and many of us on the
internet forums have wasted years and more than a decade on such theorizations; wouldn’t
want you to waste yours
Ra Si: I see, your very responsible sir
Ra Si: sir, I’m completely into Jyotish anyway
SA: if I am permitted to give any good advice
Ra Si: and about past lives, my only objective is to know them so I can get rid of them and be forever
in the present; Jyotish is a mean to achieve that I think
SA: actually Jyotish is a means to learn about one’s pending karma so that we execute it in
this life and move on in our soul cycle. Predictions about future was only a tool to attract the
common man to learn about his pending karma. Unfortunately it has now become a tool to
make a person addictive towards the astrologer and obsessive to know about the future
(today we do not find astrologers who kick out regular clients, the astrologer who does and is not
making you addictive towards astrology is the real astrologer)
Ra Si: yes, that's not what I seek, I just want to be in peace and to that I need to learn about myself -
and my pending karma – rather my Self
SA: one of the Bhrighu’s methods of finding One of the major pending karmas is by
observing the 6H and its lord
Ra Si: on rashi?
SA: see it in the D-1 and D-60, observe it and mull over it for some time and you yourself
will be able to decipher it
Ra Si: thanks a lot sir
SA: now I must take your leave, I rarely come on chat or on forums but I somehow managed
to see only one mail which was yours and I am pleased to having seen it. Wishing you all
the best. You have 3 retro planets so take it easy in life Raphael
Ra Si: I think it’s a great niimita that we met sir – what about the 3 retro planets sir?
SA: that is kind of you to say that and I wish I had more time and knowledge to give you
more predictions via D-60 without using transits or dasas which is what I do. I should not be
saying this but when 3 retro planets are there, there are many many indications one of them

805
is a tough life or a superb successful life, Venus in your 5H in D-60, you would have suffered
a bit in love
Ra Si: I did, learned a lot from it
SA: something to do with love would have happened in the 16th year of your life or the 17th
year of your life
Ra Si: exactly sir, 16 and 17 were major years in love matters
SA: I am sorry you went through that but all of us need to go through that
Ra Si: yes...
SA: see your D-60 lagna is no doubt correct. I hope you did not spend money trying to figure
out which is your D-60 lagna or trying to correct your birth time
Ra Si: nope, not at all
SA: good good. Unfortunately everyone I meet lands up spending some 200-500 dollars
trying to rectify their birth chart and I feel so bad hence I felt I should help you before you
land up spending that kind of amount
Ra Si: I don’t even have this kind of money with me atm
SA: Saturn aspects your 2nd house so be careful of negative events you predict, they can
come correct
Ra Si: but I felt I’d be able to do that on my own sooner or later
SA: good
Ra Si: ok sir
SA: Jupiter is in the 12H and it will implement itself in the 10H of career, so be careful that
you don’t do too much Jyotish or it will spoil your career – or too much spirituality
Ra Si: it might happen indeed
SA: I rarely advise anyone to become an astrologer due to what I see happening in the name
of astrology - that’s a non Jyotish advice I give and then I discourage people who are about
to get fooled by the astrology of curses
Ra Si: lol
SA: there is no such thing as strong as curse, for curses there are different combinations,
what you see if a benefic is aspected or in association with 2 malefics is just pending karma
regarding it
Ra Si: ic ic
SA: struggles very hard due to malefics that’s about it. But then it’s easier to fool foreigners
with jargons like curses and they feel so strong about it, but its unfair to play with someone’s
feelings and emotions. Anyways this is not the intention of this discussion and not needed
so I must take your leave
Ra Si: ok sir
SA: May the Force be with you
Ra Si: I appreciate your concerns
SA: you are most welcome
Ra Si: and also what you said. May the force be with you too
SA: thanks
Ra Si: have a nice time sir
SA: you too – bye for now
Ra Si: bye

ThyExperiments Towards Truth
The Exalted Jupiter’s Punch
By
Saptarishis Astrology
Copy editor: Andree Leclerc

W
ith deepest respect to our elderly astrologers present and now gone, this new
revelation is being done. On internet forums or conferences, one often finds
egoist astrologers who often ridicule young ones saying ‘Oh so and so is basic
Astrology, learns your basics first’. This habit of ridiculing the young student has been carried
over for centuries but only an honest astrologer will admit privately and also openly that
‘Basics’ is the ‘Toughest’ area to master. What elders and famous astrologers forget is that
6-8 year old boys can & will, one day, come and show that none have understood astrology
& that, perhaps, all researches are zero so far? Humility is the toughest part of astrology
Sadhana.

It is easy to read books and analysis of authors saying such and such is the result of
Jupiter Exalted but so difficult to grasp what that Jupiter who is sitting there is doing. Over
the years, the favorite confession between us and mentor is to admit to each other that ‘We
do not know astrology / I don’t know basics’. When initially mentor would say it, we would
think is he joking – this man is so well read he can quote classics left and right, he has met
thousands of astrologers and numerous rare masters whom none in India would have ever
meet and, at the same time, C. S. Patel Saheb spoke of him as the finest man astrology could
ever get and a scholar far superior as compared to many famous scholars in India. So why is
he saying he does not know astrology basics after 48 years in astrology? Today his
humbleness and honesty has shown us that what he meant by basics is the real basics that
have been ignored by all till date & he has inspired us to go deeper into the toughest subject
in astrology called ‘Basics of Astrology’. It is easier to write articles on dasas or divisional
degree transits (refer to our secrets of Shastiamsas) since for doing so, one just requires an
educated brain coupled with engineering degrees and the recipe for complicated techniques
to impress the young kids on the block and misguide them for centuries – but more difficult
is to ‘Understand What a Graha is doing sitting at one Place’.

Planets & The Unknown Master

Y
ou go to him to learn what has not been learnt by anyone – is what would be told to
you. You would also be told that he will not reveal any technique but the Master
Key which none bothers to give. He will not give you the dish but show you how
to cook. Silence fills in the room as you enter and you bow and ask like an Apprentice
‘Master, please reveal to us the meaning of the planet Jupiter, what is the meaning of its exaltation and

807
debilitation? Kindly reveal to us so that we understand astrology. Have mercy since predicting with
astrology is so easy but understanding it is impossible.’

He does not reply for 3 minutes and looks into your eyes and says ‘what a tough question you
have asked for it is not easy to understand even after many lifetimes in astrology what is the meaning
of a planet sitting in a particular sign or house. Let me teach you how to find the answer for it, by
yourself. Create a chart, put in the 4H Jupiter and now stare at it for days asking that Jupiter to tell
you what he does and gives in that position. Stop asking after some time and just stare, merge with
that 4H Jupiter, merge completely. First, you will not get answers, then some questions will come
which will create confusion, then in between, you would feel like Jupiter is asking you a question, the
answer to which if you tell him, he would then reveal to you what he is doing ‘really’ in Cancer or the
4H of a chart. Your intention in asking him the question should be clear as still pure water, your
vibrations can’t fool him, you have to be that toddler who just loves what he likes with his innocence,
he does not love it for fame or money or greed remember that.’

The questions after a few weeks would be something like this:

a) Oh Jupiter! Please tell us what is that karma of a native to get an exalted Jupiter or debilitated
Jupiter.

b) Do tell us the exact story / exact karma behind your exaltation in this native’s chart

c) Even though you are exalted and as per scriptures are supposed to give great results –
nevertheless – is there any hidden agenda of yours in exalted position which we are unable to
decipher? Do you spoil something by being exalted and do you ever give something nice by being
debilitated.

d) The question that will be asked by the planet back to you would be ‘Why are you learning
astrology, answer me ohh jatak!’

One should note that the toughest question is d). Very few can reply with honesty and most
answers are usually the parrot philosophical answers, which do not fool the higher energies
of the Universe.

Exalted Jupiter

The accepted norm with Jupiter exalted, everything in life will happen good in the chart, it
is the panacea for all evils in the chart. This has been repeated for centuries but it is not so;
in a series of 3 articles which was supposed to be originally titled ‘Myths of Exalted Jupiter’ a
new light will be shown.

The Exalted Jupiter’s Punch


If Jupiter is exalted, then it implements its sensitive strongest energy in the sign of Aquarius & it
might even destroy one of the significations of the house hosted by Aquarius.

808
Nutshell

a) Jupiter in Cancer implements its strongest energy in the moolatrikona rasi of Saturn
that is Aquarius

b) It sometimes ends up destroying very badly one of the significations of the house
represented by Aquarius Rasi.

The logic of this is not given here as any logic would only be our theory and not the Rishi’s
logic. Somewhere in the middle of the article a warning would be given which is a must-read.
We will take simple cases where this is easily evident – and also complicated cases where
this is indirectly evident.

Chart 1: Judith Richardson

A8

A8

See Jupiter is exalted in the 6H of diseases with Rahu (psychic or metaphysical or spirit
issues karaka) who are with A8. As per the proposed theory, exalted Jupiter will implement
itself in the sign Aq which is in the 1H of head/brain. Now read below from ADB…

American psychic, world famous. In early April 1979, she filed a lawsuit against her doctor and the
hospital for $2 million in damages, claiming that a cat-scan she received in 1976 robbed her of her
powers, she now gets headaches instead of revelations when she tries to concentrate. On 3/27/1986,
the jury awarded her damages of $600,000.

One gets headaches in the head which is the 1H where Aquarius is situated.

In early Apr 1979, she was running the KCD of Cancer antardasa where Jup is exalted and
her Chara Dasa of Can had started while simultareously being in Vimshottari
Rahu/Ven/Mer. Rahu is with Jup, our focus planet, and Mer is with Aq our focus sign in
the 1H of head/brain.

Chart 2: Graveyard of Indian Astrologers

809
Internet forum astrologers (including this writer) would look at the above chart and say
Exalted Jupiter in Lagna, what more do you want, the 9L of fortune/ bhagya in the 1H is
exalted, aspected by exalted Mars who is also 5L of good deeds of previous life – 5L and 9L
aspecting each other combined with exalted 7L Saturn who aspects this Jupiter… ohh what
status, everyone will be running behind you giving you lot of power.

Now use the proposed theory, Jupiter is exalted in Asc which denotes one’s character and it
implements itself in the sign Aq which is the 8H of sex and hidden things. Now read what
ADB gives about the chart:

American sexual escort who made herself available to Hollywood producers and directors. She is
employed as a stockbroker.

Chart 3: S.I.D.S 14737

Jupiter is exalted in the 1H of body and Jupiter is Jeeva Karaka (life significator); it will
implement itself in the sign of Aq which is the 8H of Longevity. The data of the above chart
is found in astrodatabank.com and is labeled as a S.I.D.S (sudden infant death syndrome)
chart. Australian Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The baby died on 3rd May 1979, when he was
in his 8th month; ironically Aq is in 8H, 8th from exalted Jupiter.

810
Chart 4: Sexual Abuse Victim from Australia

Jupiter is in the 5H of mind, children and love affairs; it will implement itself in Aq which is
in the 12th of bed pleasures with planet of sex Venus who also disposits 9L of children, which
is also the 3L of younger brother & 8L of darkness and sex; so, something to do with younger
brother, sex, darkness, love affairs, children can be presumed. Now read below:

Australian victim of child abuse. She was age two when her brother was born and for the next three
years she lived in the kitchen cupboard whenever her mom wanted a break, which soon became most of
the day. Her younger brother became a tormentor as they grew up. He beat her, sexually molested her
and tortured her. As her brother reached puberty, his sexual assaults became more frequent and
violent; he "owned" her, and her sense of self-worth was endlessly battered. She had so little self-
esteem that she could not run away.

Amy eventually escaped with a "nice" man, who seemed to care for her. His girlfriend soon moved in
with them and when Amy had a baby, they threw her out and kept the child. When she fought to keep
her daughter, her brother joined in the fray, grabbing her by the hair, and they took her screaming to
the local psychiatric hospital. She was by then completely irrational, psychotic and destitute, an empty
shell.

During treatment, further horrors were revealed. She was sexually assaulted by other patients and
staff at the hospital. While still living at home, she had been prostituted by her brother for his friends.
Amy was afraid of the dark, of going outside, of enclosed places, of being stared at, being seen by the
television; the damage to her psyche was inestimable.

She met a man, a Vietnam vet who was as psychically wounded as she, consumed by the pain of
experience and existence. They moved in together; though they hardly spoke, they turned to each other
in mute anguish. Amy screamed and cried every day. She began therapy in a psychiatric hospital,
though her brother created obstacles to her continued treatment.

Chart 5: Fatality by Vehicle

811
A6

A6

Jupiter is exalted in the 2H and it will implement itself in the sign Aq which is the 9H but
9H is 6th of accidents from 4H of vehicles and also containing 4L Mercury and 6th co-lord
Ketu while A6 (accidents) is also present in Aq. So one can say something to do with
vehicles and accidents can happen. Now read this:

British male accidentally killed by wheels of a cart running over him 10/12/1866. This was in Mer
MD which is placed in the sign Aq and the AD was Venus who is in the 3rd from Aq and
also in the 8th from 4H of vehicles.

Warning & Notes

a) One cannot blindly predict using this technique though an experienced astrologer can.
What is important here is not to keep in mind that the technique teaches us what the
Graha is doing sitting in Cancer, its exaltation sign.

b) Suppose you see Jupiter in 1H in Cn , then Aq will be 8H so in all charts it would not
mean 8H of sex, in some it would make one an astrologer and in other will give
inheritance issues, in other charts it could mean father’s death issues and so many
things. Only the obsessive critic astrologer looks at a chart result and asks -why the
same results do not happen in other charts?-

c) Never use charts of people whose complete history one does not know and, preferably,
use charts of people who are dead as sometimes longevity is say 70 – while the result
of any combination could happen in the 69th year; if we keep on looking at that chart
from age 20 until the age of 68, one would feel the combination has not given result.
The biggest graveyard of egoist astrologers is what has been observed and yet not
forewarned by previous teachers of the science.

d) One needs to be careful and discreet with this technique. Sometimes the sign of Aq or
its lords would be in the house of dowry or underhand dealings – no Indian would
accept he took dowry whereas 98 % of Indians give or take dowry despite the fact that
it’s illegal. Suppose Aq is in the 9H of racism or 7H of gain of public platform position

812
from racism (11th from 9th) – no one will admit that his Aq sign is spoilt. For e.g. use
this technique in the D-9 (dharma) chart of a famous Indian leader who was a
nobody, then one day he razed down a religious structure, created riots where
hundreds were killed, gained national importance, and after few years he said sorry.1
The astrologers who analyzed his chart praised his chart for great yogas as if the
leader has done great karma but, knowing this technique, if you saw his chart, you
would know that the evil part of Jupiter’s exaltation has implemented in his utilizing
religion to kill innocents and gain power.

Chart 6: Connie Grippo

Suppose you saw this chart in 1931 and continued seeing it till Oct 1987 – which is 56 years –
and use the above technique, you would feel the technique is failing. But if you see it at the
end of Nov 1987, then the truth might emerge. Jupiter is exalted in 8H, Aq is 3H of lungs or
upper lungs as some use it. Now read below…

A6

A6

American astrologer, a member of ISAR. She was married with a family and had a home in Los
Angeles. She had surgery for a lung tumor that was cancer on 11/11/1987 that was followed by
radiation treatment. She died a year or two later.

In 1987 she was running Can MD and Can AD in Kalachakra Dasa. Where Jupiter is placed,
it implemented its energy in Aq in the 3H of lungs. Her date of death is not known but ADB
says a year or two later – a year later would be her Moon AD (Oct 88 to Mar 90) in
Vimshottari Dasa who is placed in Aq our sign of Focus. Moon additionally is the dispositor
of exalted Jupiter and is with A6 (diseases) thereby confirming the event.

Chart 7: Stephen Gruning

1
For those unaware of Indian political scenario - In India you can create riots in the name of religion, racism and
still be called a national leader who loves your country. India has great history.

813
Jupiter is exalted in the 9H of Dharma and aspected by its own ruler Moon – everyone will
say fantastic chart, will do great dharma in life as it is not aspected by a single malefic. Now
using the proposed technique, Jupiter will implement its sensitive energy in Aq which is the
4H that has two lords: Saturn and Rahu; Saturn is in the 5H of love affairs and Saturn, in
turn, aspects the 7H of relationships. 7H is 3rd house of brother of the loved one. Or, if you
take the 7H as relationship then 9H where exalted Jupiter is placed is her brother. Rahu, the
other co-lord, is sitting in Aries in the 6H of jealousy and fighting. Now see how this has
manifested, ADB says:

American homicide: jealous and controlling, he stormed into the apartment of his former girl friend,
Rhonda Stuart, with a shot-gun, sledgehammer and revolver on 2/12/1995 at 6:00 AM. He shot and
seriously wounded her and killed both her brother Richard and her present boyfriend. He was
convicted of murder in March 1996.

The Dasa AD was of Aries (where Rahu is placed) in chara dasa and, in Vimshottari, it was
Rahu/Ketu/Moon. One can note that it is Rahu who is dispositor of Aq and Moon who is
dispositor of exalted Jup. In Kalachakra Dasa, it was Can AD from 1994 Apr to 1996 July –
Cancer is where Jupiter is placed.

Chart 8: Roccia, Nadia

814
Jupiter is exalted with 8L of death and 11L of friends (contacts/network of friends). Aq is the
5H of one’s school, its two lords Saturn and Rahu are together in the 11H of one’s network of
friends/contacts. Saturn is also the 4L of best friend. One does not know if the story
involved one’s best friend but read below:

Italian homicide victim, strangled to death at 18 by her school mates, girl friends Ana Maria Potticelli
and Mariena Sica, at Castelluccio dei Sauri. The reasons were never made clear for the crime on
3/14/1998, but it appeared to be part of a Satanic ritual. (Saturn Rahu)

The event happened in Rahu MD which is co lord of Aq. Note as soon as Aq dasa in
Kalachakra Dasa started in Sept 1997 it gave results and this event happened in 1998. In chara
dasa, it was Sg MD/Sg AD/Cn PD of 14 days when the event happened – Cancer contains
our exalted Jupiter and from Sag, Ketu (exit/exorcism) is in the 3H of ‘one’s own mistake’.

Chart 9: Richmond, Timothy

A6
A8
A6
A8

Jupiter is exalted in 3H with A6 (diseases) , it implements in Aq where A8 (death/chronic


diseases) is there, lord of Aq Rahu goes in 8H of death cum chronic diseases and other lord
Saturn goes in 6H of accidents or disease and is exalted and retrograded so something big
concerning accidents or chronic diseases can happen in his life. Now read below:

American race car driver whose career began in 1982. In 1986 he had his best year, winning seven
races, the most of any driver in the Nascar Winston Cup circuit. He always liked speed and living on
the edge, along with clothes, parties and pretty women. He died of AIDS at age 34 on August 13, 1989
in West Palm Beach, FL.

He died in Moon/Ketu/Sat – Saturn is the lord of Aq our focus sign, Ketu is opposite Rahu
the co lord of Aq, Moon is with Rahu the co lord of Aq. In KCD it was Libra MD where

815
Saturn, the lord of Aq – our focus sign – is placed. It was the MD of Sc in Chara Dasa who
is hemmed between Rahu and Saturn, both owners of Aq, our focus sign.

Chart 10: Squitieri, Claudia

Jupiter is exalted in Lagna so Aq would be 8H of great troubles or chronic diseases – we do


not know about any disease to her. The lord of Aq is Saturn with Rahu (cheating) in the 2nd
house of money and is the 6th of cheating from the 9H of father. Now read below:

Italian noted family and daughter of Claudia Cardinale. Her dad was a film producer who went to
jail for fraud.

Aq is the 12th house of jail from 9H of father.

Note: In cases where Jup is in Asc, we have to observed that the longevity of the father.

Chart 11: Greiner, Mother

A5

A5

Jupiter is exalted in the 2H of family, it will implement in Aq which is the 9H of children in


female natives and also has A5 (children in general) – so something concerning her child

816
should happen as the Lord of Aq, Saturn, is in the 8H of death and other co-lord Rahu, is in
the 2nd (maraka) from 9th and 6th from 5th. Now read below:

American nurse, the mother of Richard. At 13, Richard disappeared 1/17/1972 with no trace.

This happened in Cp MD where Saturn lord of Aq – our focus sign, is placed and in Pisces
KCD where Rahu, the co lord of Aq – our focus sign is placed. In Vimshottari, it was
Mars/Mer/Moon – Moon is dispositor of Jupiter and Mars Mer are placed in the 3H of
death from 9H of children and Aq.
BCP - See 9H is children for female nativity this everyone knows, here 9th lord Saturn is in
the 8H of death, 12th from 9H. Now her son Richard was born on 15th Aug 1958, so when he
disappeared on 17th Jan 1972 he was in his 14th year which as per BCP would be 2nd house
where our exalted Jup is sitting so see its dispositor Moon looks at the 9H of children so
some event concerning children will happen and at the same time as per our preposition
Jupiter implements its special energy in the sign of Aq which here is the 9H of children so
some event in the life of children will happen.
Chart 12: Aaron, Dave

Jupiter is in Asc so Aq will be the 8H of occult, hidden and mysteries.

American UFO researcher, owner of the largest inventory in the world of UFO videos (25,000 hours)
and tapes (6,000 hours) which he sell from his home office in Yucaipa, CA, the UFO Audio-Video
Clearing House, established c. 1990. He supplies videos of alleged UFOs to films and TV.
He had an UFO sighting in 1965 when his dad called him outside to see a radiant disk that had landed.
When he approached, a beam of light burned his chest, leaving a scar.
In 1965 he was running Moon AD – Moon is dispositor of Jupiter of Cancer. Dispositor of
Aq, Rahu, is in the sign Leo of chest; he burnt his chest leaving a scar.

Chart 13: Amitabh Bachchan

817
This is one of the most favorite charts; Jupiter is in the 6H of stomach/lower stomach. If
one gets a mighty punch on the stomach then obviously it affects ones 1H of body. Now see
the chart: Jupiter is exalted in Cancer and it implements itself in the 1H where Aq is placed
having Ketu (note Ketu); also note the dispositor of Jup which is Moon and note Saturn and
Rahu the lords of Aq our focus sign. In July 1982 he was hit on the stomach during shooting
of the film Coolie (means porter at a railway station), was hospitalized and was not to
survive. The whole nation prayed for him. Now note the dasas and remember what you
noted, the planets and the signs. It was the Chara Dasa of AD Li where Moon is placed,
Moon is the dispositor of exalted Jupiter bringing our planet of focus in the picture and the
MD of Leo where co-lord of Aq, Rahu, is placed. In Kalachakra Dasa it was Li MD and Li
AD where Moon, the dispositor of our exalted Jupiter, is placed. In Vimshottari, it was the
MD of Saturn the lord of Aq and AD of Sun who is dispositor of Rahu owner of Aq. Thus
the role of Aq is being established.

Chart 14: Santucci, Raymond James

Exalted Jupiter occupies the 11H whose lord Moon is in the 8H of sex and chronic diseases –
Jupiter will implement itself in the sign Aq which is in the 6H of diseases containing Mars
who is the 8L of chronic diseases. Now read below:

818
American homosexual male; met his partner 8/22/1990 at 10:15 PM; by 10:55 PM they had sex and he
contacted AIDS at that time. By 1993, they are still together, both HIV+. He is an astrologer, a fast
talker.

Chart 15: Addey, John

Jupiter is exalted in Asc and Aq is the 8H of chronic diseases.

British theorist and researcher, the founder and developer of modern harmonics and author of
"Harmonics in Astrology" 1976. At 23, he was struck down overnight by ankylosing spondylitis, a kind
of acute rheumatism (check Vimshottari and Chara dasa during this period). Raised as a Quaker and
a pacifist, after a year flat on his back, he joined a mystery school and moved into his life position of
being a mystic, a philosopher and a mathematician. A permanent cripple with calcified spine, he
walked with canes.

Conclusion

R
eaders are requested not to use this technique blindly especially if you have not
practised astrology for more than 30 years. You might have learnt it for 40 years but
practising it on a professional basis gives the astrologer some special skills in
implementation which are missed out by the theoretician. Aquarius in any house can give 12
different possibilities of events plus the event can be on any relative. The mistake most
astrologers make of using the natal chart just to judge one’s life is a non productive approach,
even though one knows that the natal chart signifies many relatives which is often forgotten
while testing a technique.

Late HaNamantasa
Nemasa Katwe - 1
A Tribute To An Astrologer
Par Excellence
by
Chandrashekhar Sharma.

C
entral India is known as the land
which has given Vedic astrology
many renowned writers of
astrological classics that include
Neelkantha, Jeevanatha, Vaidyanātha,
Chandrashekhar Sharma, from Nagpur, Varāha Mihira, Narāyana Bhatta,
GuNākara Kālidaasa, DhunDhiraj and
has good knowledge of sanskrit and a well
many others. Another such great
known name in the internet forums for his
humbleness & kindness to teach each and astrologer, of relatively recent times, was
everyone. He has been an ardent student of Late H. N. Kātwe who came from
this science from decades with deep Karnataka and stayed for the last part of
thoughts into various disciplines. He is the his life in Nagpur, which is at the heart of
author of the book "Vedic Astrology Vidarbha, the center region of Central
Demystified", published by Parimal India. He stayed with Mr. D.M.Dhumal of
Publications Delhi ". Nagpur publications for about 10 to 12
years and left this world on 11th August
1949. An ardent devotee of Lord Hanuman,
his spiritual guru was Gondavalekar
Mahāraj. He learnt jyotish from
Krishnānand Saraswati Yati (sage), whose
commentary of Jaimini sutra is a valuable
manuscript and who was guru of
“Vyankatesha” the author of
“Vyankatesha Vyākhyā”.

820
Late Kātwe was known for his forthright nature and accuracy of predictions. He stayed with
Mr. Dhumāl, who later on prevailed upon Katweji to write books on various aspects of
astrology. Kātweji wrote 18 books, about his thoughts on various aspects of astrology,
1
including one on the philosophy of astrology which is titled “Adhyātma Jyotish Vichāra ”.
Other books that he wrote are:

1) Ravi Vichār
2) Chandra Vichār
3) Mangal Vichār
4) Budha Vichār
5) Guru Vichār
6) Shukra Vichār
7) Shani Vichār
8) Rahu/Ketu/grahana Vichār
9) Bhava Vichār
10) Bhavesha Vichār
11) Yoga Vichār
12) Adhyatma Jyotish Vichār
13) Daiva Vichar
14) Teja Vichār
15) Prashna Vichār
16) Gocara Vichār
17) Daiva Rahasya
18) Shubhaashubha Graha NirNaya.

He has quoted, liberally, from Brihadayavana Jātaka, Garga Jātaka, Lomasha SaMhitā
MānasāgarI PārāsharI, texts of GaNakabhāskara Nawāthe, Moghe, Rigveda, BhagvadgItaa,
Kālidaasa, JIvanātha, Jayadeva, Vaidyanātha, DhunDhirāj, Kalyānverman, Shirnivāsa
Sharmā, Ăryagrantha, Hillāja Jātaka, BrihatpārāsharI, HarivaMsha, VashiSTha,
Kāshināthāchārya, Jāgeshwara, Mantreshwara, NārāyaNa Bhatta, Abdul Rahim
KhānKhānā, Gholapa, Gopāla Ratnākara, Bhrigu, GYārNava Tantra,
yogakuNDalaupaniSada, yoga shikhopaniSada, Bhairava Yāmala etc. It is also interesting to
note that he has also quoted from Rafael and thus has taken into consideration opinions of
western astrologers. He has indicated his reservations about some of their assessments, but
has nonetheless quoted the results of the outer planets like Herschel and Neptune without
any reservation. At the same time he has said that as he did not get confirmed results of
Pluto, he would not comment on its efficacy in astrological predictions. This gives an
insight into his nature. He would only accept different results given for a yoga when he
experienced them in real life charts and not otherwise. He has also given information about
the aspects that are considered to be from Tajik or western astrology. This gives an
indication of his being open to new ideas, though of an earlier generation that is presumed to

821
have closed mind to any new idea. He has also been forthright in putting forth his own
opinion which might, sometimes, be thought to be at variance with the generally accepted
norms. So the picture that emerges is that of a great soul, and astrologer, who is open to new
ideas but is never afraid to give his honest opinion on the science of astrology even if it is
against the popularly held beliefs.

When we read Kātweji’s books we find his being unsparing of even himself, when analyzing
his own chart from an astrological perspective, which is worth emulating by modern
astrologers. It is also interesting to note that he puts his name as Jyotish student H.N.
Kātwe, a sign of a realized soul whose very humility ensures that knowledge of the divine
shall never desert him. I am giving below the chart of Late Kātwe, here for the benefit of the
students of the divine science of astrology. The readers may find that degrees of some of the
planets differ, somewhat, from those given by Late Kātwe, in his book but that is, perhaps,
because a different almanac used by him. However here is no change in the placement of
even Navāmsha position of the planets.

Late Katwe analyzes this chart in following manner.

Ascendant: Dhanu lagna (Sagittarius Ascendant) jātakas (people) are born astrologers. They
can remain unmarried and though he got married, he lost his wife early and never remarried.
Dhanu lagna is seeker of higher knowledge and so was Late Katwe.

2nd Bhava: Lord of the 2nd is retrograde and occupies the 10th and Sun and Mercury occupy
the 2nd bhava which according to Late Katwe leads to his being bereft of wealth. This also
makes one speak truth and gives less happiness from family.

822
3rd Bhava: Jupiter and Venus in the 3rd bhava and its lord Saturn being retrograde gave him 3
brothers. He lost his elder brother early and the relations with other brothers were strained.

4th Bhava: Lord of the 4th (Jupiter the Lord of Pisces) is placed in 3rd bhava and hence he lost
his mother when he was 4 months of age and could not accumulate wealth.

5th Bhava: Aries arises in 5th bhava and its lord Mars is in 12th bhava, leading to his not
having any progeny. Rahu in the 5th gave an analytical mind and also made him an author.

6th Bhava: Jupiter the lord of the 4th (happiness) and Venus (Karaka for spouse) occupying
the 3rd did not allow happiness from spouse as she died early in his marital life. Life after
marriage was full of sorrow.

7th Bhava: Lord of the 7th being in 2nd (8th from 7th) did not allow him to do any business.
Lack of happiness from wife as last life’s wife also became his wife in this life and died early.

8th Bhava: Moon the 8th lord being in its rasi of exaltation should give longer life but death
could occur in forest as Taurus is related to forests (He died at home of Mr. Dhumāl in a city
when about 57 years of age which for those times was longer life).

9th Bhava: Jupiter and Venus aspecting the 9th made him undertake many pilgrimages but
Moon and Neptune (Neptune is in his 6th bhava but the software used by me does not allow this to
be shown in print) being in 6th bhava did not pursue worship with dedication.

10th Bhava: Sun and Mercury in 2nd allowed him to write 24 books on astrology (this includes
translations of Marathi books in Hindi). This gives happiness from father till 41st year of age
but differences were there as Saturn occupies the 10th bhava. He quotes Chamatkāra
Chintāmani for 10th bhava Saturn and says that 10th bhava placed Saturn did not allow him
to get milk from his mother.

11th Bhava: Lord of the 11th Venus occupying the 3rd did not allow, much, gains to accrue to
him, 3rd being a dusthana.

12th Bhava: Rahu in 5th indicates some benefit from quest of almighty and Mars being in 12th
caused him to be jailed for some time.

This is a different method of analyzing a chart and students of astrology could benefit from
this.

823
Late H. N. Kātwe is perhaps the only Vedic astrologer, of modern times, who has written
extensively about the connection of Jyotish with Vedanta. In his book “Adhyātma Vichāra”
Late Kātwe has mapped the planets to the various charkas on the path of rise of kundalini
and proposed that Yoga shāstra was developed by Dravidians, and Ăryans learnt it from
them. The learned in ancient sciences might disagree with him but his proposition is
certainly not without logic. He has also quoted from scriptures and tantra texts to support
his theory.

He has opined that one can find out the chart of the previous birth of a Jātaka by casting the birth
chart, with the Rāsi depositing Saturn as rising lagna. He has analyzed his own chart in this
manner to find out what he had done in previous life. He has called Sun as Brahma, Moon
as Māyā, Saturn as related to renunciation and liberation related to Rahu. He connects
Mercury and Rahu to Mulādhāra chankra, Venus to SwādhiSThāna chakra, Sun to
MaNipura chakra, Mars to Anāhata chakra, Moon to Vishuddha chakra, Jupiter to Adhnyā
chakra and Saturn to Sahasrāra chakra. He has written extensively on various aspects of
spirituality in this book which would certainly be of interest to those who would like to
pursue the connection between Vedanta and jyotish.

His other books that deal with his thoughts (vichāra) on different planets, Bhavas and so on
are written in the style of “Chamatkāra ChintāmaNi” and he has given opinion of different
authorities on each planet in each grahas and followed it up with his own thoughts about
them. He has held that exalted planets rarely give only good results attributed to them while those in
debility give good results. He has given some charts to support this theory. I tend to agree with him
but only in respect of the natural malefics. Astrologers may like to read more of Katweji’s books
to understand him fully and benefit from his wisdom. His books in Marathi and Hindi are
available with the publisher “Anil Digambar Dhumal” Nagpur Prakashan, opposite Shri
Ramkrishna Math, Dhantoli Nagpur-440012.

In a jataka’s chart the yoga of the lord of the rasi occupied by Chandra (with other grahas or
bhavas) is capable of giving rise to yoga (good results). Thus does one suffer the results (of his deeds
in past life) in this loka (life).

Or

The good or bad results that a person gets in this loka (life), is controlled by the yogas caused by the
Lord of the rasi occupied by Chandra who is the granter of yogas (different results) to a Jataka.

If the lord of the 8th bhava (lord of the rasi occupied by Chandra) is Surya the Jataka is friend of a

secretary of a King, if it be Mangal with strength he is leader of people.

If Budha, is the 8th lord the person may be king in young age, if Shani be the 8th lord, he becomes a
servant (does work for others), thus do surya and other grahas give their results in accordance to their
nature when in yoga (with the rashinath).

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: The above two shlokas could also mean that the above results will ensue
when either the grahas indicated conjoin with the Rahsinath or when the Rashinath is also the 8th lord.
Personally I think this may indicate what happens when the Rasinath has any of the variations accepted
as sambandha, with the 8th bhava owned by the graha indicated or the 8th lord.

If many grahas are involved in yoga the results are those indicated by the strongest of the planets,
according to its nature. Should there be aspect of Rahu on such yoga; the person is of a cruel/ruthless
temperament.
Chandrashekhar’s Comment: The pathabheda of this shloka says that the person will be very learned
and I think that may be right as Rahu absorbs other planet’s strength and expresses it through himself)

If it is conjunct Ketu the jataka is pious but ugly to look at (may be not so good looking). If it is
aspected by planet in exaltation or aspected by the 6th lord he is very fortunate and when more than
one (such) planets aspect (the lord of rasi occupied by Chandra) the jataka earns much honours.

When conjunct Sun (the malefic rashinath aspected by a malefic) , the jataka has a temper (hot nature
is actually said, here), he sweats much if with Moon, when with Mars he has itches and scars or
injuries, with Mercury he is bulky and with skin like an elephant (ruddy and rough skin that has
wrinkles on it).

When Guru so conjoins him, he is good looking with brown hair on his head, with Venus he is
libidinous, with Mars he has a scar on head or there is some disease to the head (like severe head ache
or feeling of top portion of head being under constant pressure), if Saturn so conjoins he is slim or thin
with curly hair and when Rahu so conjoins, he is old looking with joint problems and weak.

When Ketu is so conjunct, he is of small stature and not good looking (ugly it says), so say the sages
about the physique of the Jatakas. In this fashion should be found the effects of the lords of the dasha
(The problems indicated may arise during the course of the planets that conjoin the Rasi nath). This
should not be forgotten (when predicting in) king’s court.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: As indicated, by the last shlokas, in this yoga phalam sub-chapter of the
4th adhyaaya, the results of the various conjunctions that are being talked about here under are with
respect to conjunction of various planets with the planet giving Yoga that is the rasinath as given in
earlier shlokas. So the results are to be read together with what has been said earlier, and not in
isolation.

Lord Shiva).

The Guru (sages) opine that other grahas give their results taking shelter of the yoga causing planet
and also based on the strength of the lord of the 11th. (pathabheda 1 says the results are based on its
strength and pathabheda 2 says it is based on the strength of its bhaga meaning the bhava occupied by

832
it.) In causing yogas the yogada (lord of rasi occupied by Chandra) is strong as is Rahu in causing
death (during its dasha).

such an argala.
Chandrashekhar Comments: It seems that, in matter of argala, Krishna Mishra gives importance to
argala of yogada planet only (which according to him is the lord of the rasi occupied by Moon/ or
planets conjoining it), and this aears to distinguish his interpretation of Jaimini.

Even less number of planets in dusthanas cause harm (to argala). The planets in trines (which are
dusthanas) from Yogada planet also can cause such harm. If (simultaneously) there are planets in
saumya or good sthanas there could occur yoga (good results), sometimes.

Or, by pathabheda:

When less number of planets are in trines to yogada planet, they can harm the argala cast by the
yogada planet if they occupy dusthanas and if such planets in trine to yogada be saumya (benefic) they
can, some time, cause yoga (good results).

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: I think the first meaning is more appropriate.

(Even) Shubha grahas are bereft of strength if in exaltation but occupying dusthanas (trika) and those
in debility are also weak (in good places). Rahu gives full results, in dusthanas, according the grahas

Another meaning- or as much distance as he is from lagna that is the Arudha lagna). It is said that the
strength of the graha (lagna lord, here) is similar to the strength of Chandra.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: I think Lagnesha in lagna is more likely to make the Jataka self-centered,
than being friendly with spouse and the children, especially when it is a malefic.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: I think that such a Chandra conjunct the 5th lord as one of the eunuch
grahas occupying the 5th could also give adopted son/daughter. When a eunuch occupies the 5th it is
possible that the person may have one son and one daughter, either of whom might be adopted.

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: I would doubt Shani will give a dead son by occupying 5th or conjoining
Chandra as being Ayushkaraka he is likely to sustain life, though there could be some health problems
to the progeny.

However if the navamsha occupied by such a Rahu in Karka rasi is occupied or aspected by a shubha
graha he succeeds in such worship malefics similarly aspecting or conjoining that navamsha will

Shukra and Shani conjoining one is only interested in worship for gaining worldly success and is
devotee of Goddess Durga. When the grahas Guru and Mangal join in the 5th one becomes a
renunciate.
Chandrashekhar’s Comments: Devi, besides referring to bright objects in female form, also means a bird
and could mean Surya who is said to be having the form of a bird. So it could mean Guru Mangal and
Surya together in the 5th makes one a renunciate. This appears to be more correct in keeping with the
principles of astrology.

When Ketu occupies the 5th is a regular performer of religious rites (generally passed on from the

be problems with his spouse and the jataka might be used to dressing shabbly.

However, when such a fifth bhava is aspected by Guru, the jataka is detacched from wordly pleasures
or is one who has his senses under sontrol and is a renunciate. When Guru is conjunct Rahu (in the
above case) he is worshiper of Kaula marga (worship with a woman indicated by use of “ai”)

When there is sambandha between lord of the 6th and the yogada graha one becomes commander of
army. The 6th lord becomes yoga giving planet yoga arises in the dasha of the 6th lord and its aspect
(the 6th bhava, in gochar).

When a papagraha occupies it (6th bahva) one lives by occupations like agriculture. When Shani,
Manal and /or Rahu occupies (aspects of Shani and or Mangal only, per pathabheda) the 6th one goes
to or dewlls in different province/ country (than that of his birth), to hills and forests (for his
livelihood).

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: The pathabheda also indicates aspect of these grahas, which seems t be
appropriate as the next shloka does talk about aspects of other grahas.

When 6th bhava is aspected by Chandra, the jataka works a country that is near sea. Same is the case
when Shukra aspects the 6th bhava, say the sages. When the aspect is of Guru conjunct Chandra he
works in a place/ country that is close to some body of water. Rahu ( with Guru) indicates that he
will work in area that is rocky.

When the yoga conferring graha ( yogada) is in a kendra (square) the 6th lord (having sambandha
with such a yogada0 is capable of granting much favour to the Jataka. It is said that if he (6th lord) is
also in a trikona (while yogada occupies a kendra and has sambandha with the 6th lord) he makes the
jataka powerful and wealthy and destroys the Kemadruma yoga.

If the yogaprada graha (yogada) is having sambandha with the 7th lord the jataka has many wives.
The number of such wives should be understood by the navamsha number past by the 7th lord (in the
rasi occupied by it).

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: Bahudarapa does mean one who is lord (implying husband) of many
wives, but it is also good to rememer that in ancient times having many wives was the measure of one’s
wealth, so before giving blanket predictions as above one should also check the 5th and 9th bhava for
good influence of planets in which case the persom may have many partners or be having many
businesses (both indicated by 7th bhava) and be wealthy.

If the 7th bhava is occupied by Chandra (while 7th lord has sambandha with Yogada or himself is
Chandra) the spouse is of good character and beautiful, Shukra, in the 7th bha va also gives identical
results. When Guru conjoins Chandra (in 7th) the lady has all the good marks (qualities and physical
indicators) and some times is also artistic or patron of arts.

It is said that when Shani is so placed, the spouse is ugly and sickly or one observing severe austerities.
If Ketu or Rahu are so placed she is without husband ( may not marry or may loose her husband) and
is ugly.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: The word Kurupini may not mean ugly and could meam one who has
homely looks. It also seems that the yogada has to have sambandha with the graha concerned. It is also
implied that there shold not be aspect of any other benefic on the 7th.

Surya (in 8th) conjunct Rahu, indicates death due to King’s displeasure whereas Chandra in the 8th
indicates death by kinglike disease, Mangal cangive death through a wound and Budha conjunct Ketu
gives death through Vishuchikaa (severe stomach disorder resulting in both vomitting and loose
motions like Cholera) disease.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: In case of Chandra patha bheda indicates Rajayakshma [Tuberculosis]


causing the death of the jataka and that appears to be more in keeping with the astrological principles.

When a weak Chandra aspects Mangal in the 8th and Rahu also aspects it there is a possibility of

When shubha grahas aspect the 8th bhava the dosha of disease does not arise and the results are

In this manner one should think from the Lagna and the Yogada graha as well as from the lagna lord.

As the graha that aspects Rasi lagna, Navamsha lagna and Dreshkana lagna is called yogada,
the graha that aspects the Rasi lagna and Navamsha lagna or Rasi lagna and Dreshkana

If the aspecting graha occupies rasi (of chandra) and aspects the lagna, it is called Kevala and is also
capable of giving yoga (good results) as the graha that aspects lagnas (as above) gives yoga.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: Krishna Mishra seems to say that a graha occupying the Chandra rasi
and aspecting the lagna is called Kevala whereas generally the commentators have called the rasinath of
Chandra rasi aspecting the Lagna (and/or 7th form it) as the Kevala. The definition of Krishna mishra
of a yogada is also restrictive as in earlier chapter he seems to indicate that only the lord of the Chandra
rasi is capable of being called Yogada. However in this chapter he adds other definition to the word
yogada and that is of the graha who aspects the Lagna and Navamsha lagna and Dreshkana lagna.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: I have also included those of low caste, as in the earlier shloka Krishna
Mishra indicates that the sages have given the results based on the castes governed by the aspecting
grahas.

When Rahu is conjunct or aspected by krura grahas like Mangal etc. sometimes he becomes lord of all

If Rahu is conjunct a krura graha the results are medium if otherwise (when conjunct or aspected by
more than one krura graha) the results are otherwise. When Rahu is aspected by a shubha graha he
gives good results for those who are brahmins.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: The results of more than one krura graha conjoining or aspecting rahuare
said to be vipareeta. This could mean either that the results are bad or that they are very good.In view of

868
the shloka above I think it means that his becoming lord of all universe depend on other yogas in the
chart as the word used in earlier shloka is “Kwachit” .

When Mangal, though yogada, is aspected by two or three grahas one may sometimes become the
King. When Shani, Mangal or Rahu cast an argala from an odd rasi (on the yogada), the yoga for
being a king is partially realized.

Chandrashekhar’s comment: The argala reference could also be to argala on Lagna or dreshkana lagna

In other cases the jataka’s penury disappears as if submerged in sea and he gets wealth after that (end
of penury). When the lagna lord is in 5th from the Lagna or in Drekkana lagna he makes the Jataka
rich.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: I have translated Gara as 5th since that is the the name of 5th karana.

If more than one graha become yogada (by virtue of their aspect of Lagna, Navamsha Lagna and/or
Dreshkana lagna, their conjunction caises a Rajyoga. As the argalas received by them is of shubha
grahas he becomes a good or pious king.

If the argalas are of mixed grahas (both shubha and krura) the results are mixed and if that of a graha
in debility, the results are contrary (raj yoga shall not be caused or destroyed). If he graha casting
argala is in exaltation it is a high degree of rajyoga. When the argala is of graha conjunct a krura
graha one is a cruel king.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: The last line could also mean that when the graha aspecting the
three/two lagnas is conjunct a krura graha the king is strict or cruel.

When Chara rasi are involved in yoga the yoga is variable (the results occur to different intensity at
different times in the life of Jataka) in a Sthir rasi the results are steady ( the yoga lasts the life time)
and the yoga is strongest when it occurs in an Ubhaya (dual rasi).

870
Chandrashekhar’s Comments: I think Krishna Mishra is talking about the results obtained by argalas
cast upon the Yogada from different rasis.

When this occurs in 8th bhava the yoga is destroyed, when Krura graha are in kendra or trikona, the
yoga is stable and when in Vyaya (12th) the yoga is lost (does not happen).

Lord of the 10th becoming yogada one is wealthy and always busy doing his work. 11th lord makes one
very wealthy whereas the 12th lord makes one live in penury is the opinion of the learned Gurus.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: It is possible that the reference is to the lordship of grahas causing the
argalas since the shlokas follow the reference to argala causing grahas and their results. Personally I
think that could be the case.

In this manner should one observe the nature and conjunction and placement of grahas and give their
results after taking into consideration their strengths. As one looks at the yogada from its aspect on the
lagna one should also think about the grahas that aspect the trines to lagna.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: Iranganti Rangachari advises that if there is no graha that aspects the
Lagna, Navamsha Lagna and Dreshkana lagna, then one should look at the graha aspecting their trines
in the three charts, Krishna mishra however does not think that this is to be done when no graha aspects
the three lagnas but seems to indicate that the grahas that aspect the respective trines in the three charts
also be considered for yogada status. I tend to agree with him.

If (one) graha aspects Hora, Ghati and/or Rasi lagna a rajyoga occurs. When exalted and/ or
debilitated grahas aspect (the yoga) the learned say that the yoga is harmed.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: The logic of exaletd or debilitated graha aspecting the yoga is not
apparent. I think the reference may be to a krura graha in exaltation or debility aspecting the yoga or
yogada harming the yoga which is more logical, astrologically.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: Dushta sthana can mean all dusthanas too. However as 6th is already
comented upon, I think here it means the 8th bhava as the lord of 12th is already being considered and the
8t is the only bhava out of the primary dusthanas left and 12th lord aspecting the 12th will strenghen the
bhava and can not lead to penury.

for the yoga to fructify.

When Chandra occupies the 7th and is in aspect of a malefic, Mangal is conjunct Rahu in lagna and a
weak Shukra occupies the 2nd bhava one looses eyes due to anger of the King.

Chandrashekhar’s Comments: In my opinion, in modern days this could only happen in Muslim
countries of the middle east where such punishments are given. In other part of the world, one may
loose eyesight due to some wrong operation conducted in a Government hospital.

In this manner one should look at yogada from lagna, lagna lord, Drekkana rasi (drekkana lagna) with
due analysis and declare the results occuring in the relevant dhasas. However when this combination
of grahas are in aspect of shubha graha the results will be good ( the bad results should not be
declared).

The Nature of True charity

Once Arjuna asks Krishna, when every king, including the Pandavas are doing great charity
and giving away things to the poor generously. Then why Karna alone is praised for his
generosity.

Krishna, the next day, takes Arjuna to the outskirts and by his powers
creates a Golden and a silver mountain, and asks Arjuna to donate the
mountains to others, before Sun set. Arjuna, seeing the small
mountains, laughs and says, it’s not a big deal. So he calls everyone
from the surrounding villages and gives them a piece of the mountain
by breaking the mountain. But to his shock, he sees that the mountain
grows by the same size he breaks it and its almost sun set and even
after distributing to everyone and tired of the act, he almost gives
up, saying it’s his maya (illusion) and he can’t win over it.

Then Krishna sends for Karna just before sunset and asks Karna to
donate the mountains before sunset. Karna just calls two passerby,
asks one to take the golden mountain and the other to take the silver
mountain and walks away.

Krishna says to Arjuna - this is generosity. You were not liberal to


give away everything but Karna can give away anything to anyone and
that’s why he is great.
