And hence the Bhavaa is superimposed on Raashi. In Weastern Astrology it is called as houses. The first house is the house which rises on the Eastern Horizon you will see a particular Raashi (Assuming you know, how to identify the star constituting the Raashi) rising (Ascending or climbing) Suppose the rising sign is Dhanu, it is - Lagnaa or Ascendant Makara will be the – Second Bhaava Kumbha will be the – Third Bhaava Meena will be the – Forth Bhaava And so on … The houses are counted zodiacally.

Here if we take the Raashis to be Static aspect of the zodiac, the Bhaavas are the Dynamic aspects of the zodiac. The first house is the Rising Raashi, The forth house is the yet to Rise and is below the horizon. In fact it is right below the feet. (Represents midnight) The Seventh House is the Raashi which is setting in the west, just going below the horizon. (Represents Sunset) The Tenth House is the topmost (Represents noon) The first house is akin to Mesha, the fourth akin to Karka, the seventh house is akin to Tula and the tenth house is akin to Makara. Now take the 5th to 9th from each of these houses like 1st – 5th – 9th 2nd – 6th – 10th 3rd – 7th – 11th

4th – 8th – 12th These houses are in the harmony – firstly because they represents the same Tatwaa. The 5th from any house is its future. The 9th from any house is its past. These are the Trikona (Trines) The 1 – 4 – 7 – 10 houses from any house are the pillars of the sector. These are the Kendra (Squares) For example, the first house represents the sense of being ness the “I AM” feeling in any horoscope for the native (Jataka). (The Native or Jataka means the person whose horoscope is being read by the Jyotisha.) The 5th house will represent the future sense of “I” And 9th house will represent the past sense of “I” The first and the other two houses will represent the same tatwaas. The 4th from the 1st belongs to the same motive force, Stira, Chara or Dwijbhaava and hence co-operate with each other. Like the example given in the Raashi Lesson – where the cars were moving in their particular lane as per the speed limit. The first house represents the self. Your characteristics, your nature etc. this represents your Dharmaa – That which you hold. The forth house is the lowest point where “I” sense will be at the lowest. Totally forgetting the “I” sense is Mokshaa or The Liberation. The 7th house is the opposite of the 1st house representing your interactions with the outside world. (This house is the doorway to the world) in other words, it is intercourse with the world hence this is Kamaa. (Desires) The 10th house is the topmost house (Directly over head). This represents, pinnacle of “I”. Feeling this is Arthaa. The trines from each of these four houses form the Trikonaas (Trines) of the particular purusharthaa. The four Purusharthaas are Dharmaa, Arthaa, Kaama, Mokshaa. And are called the Aayaanas or aims of life. Dharmaa

This represents the person’s belief systems. Every person holds in him / her some belief system which is said to define him / her for the society. A person is born into a belief system by birth in a family professing it (first Bhaava). The person goes to a certain place for worship (ninth house). The person holds some book or words as sacred (fifth house). Arthaa The person has to define to the world at large. This “Trying to define himself” to the world is done through speech, food (second house), Work ethics, hard labor, and the ability to control the people (sixth house). Earn money, work hard and achieve power (tenth house). Kaama Every person has legitimate or otherwise desires, which can be fulfilled as per the norms of the society. Personal interactions i.e. person to person (third house), Business interactions i.e. buying - Selling, partnership, negotiations (seventh house) Social interactions i.e. Friends etc (eleventh house). Mokshaa This is the end point of all human existence “Freedom”. Freedom from the feeling “I” As in the Mothers womb or Lap (fourth house). As in sickness or death (eighth house) As in sleep or Liberation (twelfth house) As we have seen that there is a synchronicity (as in Raashis having same motive force) as well as empathy (as in Raashis having same elements) Therefore in traditional Jyotisha, the house is a full Raaashi. I.e. suppose the degree of the sign rising on the horizon is 18 degrees, the whole Raashi of Tula will be treated as the first house. The second house will be Vrischika, the third will be Dhanu, the forth will be Makara, the fifth will be Kumbha and so on… unlike Western Astrology. There are house divisions also in Jyotish but it will be discussed later. The Lords of Raashis: The Lords of these Raashis will be the Lords of these Bhaavas. Like Tula rising will be lagna and so the Lord of the 1st Bhaava or Lagnadhipati will be Shukra. The Lord of the 2nd Bhaava will be Ketu / Mars because they are the Co _ Lords of the Vrishchika. The lord of the 3rd Bhaava will be Guru as he is the Lord of Dhanu, which falls in the 3rd house and so on.

So we have learnt that each bhaava has certain significations, each rules some compartment of life of an individual, each falls in a certain Raashi, each has a lord ruling it. Each Bhaava also has a planet (Graha) who becomes its significator. We will deal in detail with all these aspects in detail in the next posts in this lesson. Question by a student w.r.t the Tatwaas and the Purushaartha. I can understand the following. Zodiacal Kendra - Chara rasi - Lorded by Brahma - Rajo Guna - Creation Zodiacal Panapara - Sthira rasi - Lorded by Shiva - Tamasik Guna -Destruction Zodiacal Apoklima - Dwisbava rasi - Lorded by Vishnu - Satwik Guna -Protection But I cannot understand the following and correlate.

Now, come to midday when the Sun is in the tenth house and the natural sign is Capricorn. The focus is on work and Karma Yoga. The signs are earthy and materially focused forming the Artha Trikona.
