Combinations for Fame: By yenbeeyes Written on 23.03.

2008 Published in the All India Federation of Astrological Societies – Research Journal – July-Sep. 2008 issue. The 3rd chart of Aishwarya Rai was omitted in the printed article. Being known to each and every common man is what makes a person fame. Fame comes in different spheres of life. A child born to an already famous person is known to many due to media and publicity. His/Her photographs are published everywhere. Then comes the Child prodigy-as a child some exemplary action lifts the child from an ordinary being to a famous personality. Fame also comes from some actions. Deeds – good or bad (or is it worst). Some are famous in a small circle, and some others in their own community or field. Some gain fame after death. Some others are famous even after death. Is there any yardstick by which we can measure the fame? Are there any criteria which determines that the one will be famous or will attain name and fame at a particular time and will be known to every human being for a specific time or for ever? What does Jytoisha reveals us on these points? When the above questions came to my mind I started scanning the various Vedic scriptures, hoping to find some definite results. Alas ! I ended up with hundreds and hundreds of combinations for ‘getting fame.’ If I were to list out all those findings, that alone will occupy half of this magazine pages. Then I shifted my focus on to studying some of the horoscopes of notable personalities. I went through all the horoscopes given by Dr. B.V.Raman in his beautiful book ‘Notable Horoscopes.’ Of course the collection of horoscopes by Dr. B.V.Raman is not of those persons who are famous in the sense that their names are known to each and every individualprobably famous only in a particular section or field - at least some of them. They are no doubt horoscopes having noteworthy combinations but not necessarily of famous personalities. Since the yardstick for fame is not fixed, or the yardstick too lengthy to measure having numerous permutations and combinations, how an Astrologer can predict that given a horoscope, whether the native will be famous or not ? If so in what area or what field or in what manner ? When he will come to be known to one and all ? How long will his fame last ? and so on… After careful study and analysis of various charts I came to the following conclusions:

1. The best indicator of fame is Moon. To determine the odds for fame, popularity and public

appeal, an analysis of the Lunar aspects are extremely revealing. As the second most important feature in the horoscope, the Moon reveals our basic personality traits. The amount of popularity we enjoy and the general response others have to us is shown in the condition of the natal Moon, therefore it is an ideal indicator of potential fame. If the Moon in your natal chart is in a prominent position – in a Kendra or trikona – exalted or own house or by several aspects to other planets, you could be on your way. These show a natural potential for appealing to the masses. 2. Not everyone with a prominent Moon becomes famous, but it definitely is a major factor in that direction. Some are famous without a prominent Moon, but they usually have some very heavy emphasis in a particular area of their chart, such as a stellium of planets in an angle. 3. Without a prominent Moon, and without such a stellium, you can still achieve fame, but it involves lot more work to accomplish this. With Mars conjunct Jupiter, though, you definitely have the potential energy to work hard to achieve fame, if that is what you desire.

But he cannot determine fame. 5. it is observed that Jupiter plays an important role where as for nocturnal births Saturn takes the place in determining the fame. These are the ten commandments for getting fame.4. Similar effects will come to pass. Lagna lord and 10th lord strongly placed without malefic interventions. Various innumerable combinations do bring popularity which should not be forgotten. planets posited therein as also the aspects the sign is receiving are all important factors before deciding on whether the native will attain fame or not. 4. while 10th Lord is in a trine from 10th House and Lagna Lord is in Lagnas angle. 8. while 10th Lord is strong and gives Aspect to Jupiter. For Diurnal births. Fame will come to the native. Position of lord of 10th from Moon and his associations. 1. .. if 11th Lord is in 10th House. Above all we should not forget the 1st house as it represents fame also. 6. he can only support by his placement. lord of the sign. The nature of the sign. let us call it as the HOUSE OF FAME. Placement in a Kendra or Kona from Lagna or Arudha Lagna or House of Fame is vital for this rule. Connection between 5th and 10th house as also between 5th and 9th house. If the lord of House Of Fame occupies a Kendra or Kona from the house of fame. Jupiter or Venus should have some connection with Moon-conjunction. Ashtakavarga System also throws some light on attaining fame through the bindus or dots gained by a planet due to his placement. the 9th house as well as the 5th house also represents fame. Hence Arudha Lagna and planets in Kendra/Kona to Arudha Lagna are vital. 6. The tenth house. Since the 10th house plays a major role in establishing fame. 5. 2. it is only the major influences which make a person famous. When Jupiter or Saturn conjoins or aspects the lord of house of fame or placed in an angular position fame results. Maharishi Parasara has the following to say in regard to combinations for fame: One will be endowed with fame. The next person who assists in getting fame is the planets placed in Kendra or Kona to the lord of House of Fame. Karaka for public is Moon – Hence Moon should be strong in the chart. 10. 9. aspect or placement in Kendra or trikona to Moon. as Lagna Lord is in 10th House and Moon is in 5th House. if 10th Lord is in 9th House. 3. fame is likely to come. Hence Lagna and placement of Lagna lord are also to be considered. Fame is related to image. if Moon is in 10th House. It is noteworthy to mention that an afflicted 12th house or 4th house may make one shy away from fame. 7. Now it is time to frame some rules to find out the answers to at least some of the questions raised above. That is to say that the position of lord of House of Fame in a Kendra or Kona definitely ensures support for the native in achieving fame. These are not the end of it.
