Narasimha Rao, SJVC I prostrate before Lord Ganesa, Lord Jagannatha, Sri Achyuta Dasa and Pt. Sanjay Rath and share my little knowledge of bhava arudhas with the fellow students of SJVC.
Arudha padas of all the 12 houses (bhavas) in all the divisional charts are deﬁned as follows: 1. Take the sign containing the house of interest in the divisional chart of interest. 2. Find the sign occupied by the lord of the house of interest. [NOTE: Aquarius is owned by Saturn and Rahu. Scorpio is owned by Mars and Ketu. Take the stronger lord in the case of houses falling in these two signs. We will cover the strengths of planets in a diﬀerent lesson.] 3. Count signs from the house of interest to the sign containing its lord. Counting is in the zodiacal direction always. For example, if the house we are interested in is in Gemini and its lord Mercury is in Aquarius, we count signs from Gemini to Aquarius and get 9. 4. Count the same number of signs from the sign containing the lord and ﬁnd the ending sign. In the above example, we count 9 signs from Aquarius and we end up in Libra. 5. Exception: If the sign found thus in step (4) is in the 1st or 7th from the original sign in step (1), then we take the 10th sign from the sign found in step (4). Otherwise we don’t make any change. 6. The resulting sign contains the arudha pada of the house of interest. Arudha pada of a house is simply called arudha or pada also. We usuallydenote the arudha pada on nth house with An. For example, arudha pada of 4th house is A4 and arudha pada of 9th house is A9. There are two special cases: Arudha pada of lagna is denoted as AL (arudha lagna) and arudha pada of 12th house is denoted as UL (upapada lagna).

It shows what ”rises” in the material world out of something that lives inside a person. one’s awards etc rise out of it in the material world and the world can ’see’ them. So Mars is stronger than Ketu and works as the lord of Sc. Saturn is alone and Rahu is with another planet. houses from lagna qualify the true self. An example will make this clearer. awards in competitions etc. [Hint: Mars is with 2 other planets and Ketu is with only one planet. It lives inside one. The world uses them to form an impression of one’s intelligence. One’s intelligence is something that relates to one’s ”true” self. However. because it cannot directly see the latter. They 4 .] +-------------------------------------------------------+ | | | | | | | | Asc | | | | Sat | | Glk | | | | Ven | | | | | | | |-------------|---------------------------|-------------| | | | | | AL Mar | | Rah | | | | | | Moo Sun | | Ket | | | | | |-------------| D .

we say thatarudhas maya (illusion). 3. 8. It rises in the material world as the vehicle owned by the native. 4. A4 shows one’s vehicle and it rises in the material world. The vehicle owned by a native (e. 11. Exercise 2 Consider the following matters. 2. using which the world forms impressions. a BMW car etc) can be seen by the material world. 10. Go one step ahead: Identify which of the matters live inside a native (true houses) and which of them rise in the material world (arudhas). 12. 7.g. It lives inside one and cannot be directly seen in the material world. For example. And.SJVC LESSON 14 Bhava Arudhas show matters that live inside one. 9. 6. a bicycle. Using standard references.

So the true 4th house shows one’s happiness from vehicle and it is an internal matter. we should realize that the impressions formed by the world based on what rises in the material world need NOT reﬂect accurately on what lives inside a person. The world uses it to judge one’s happiness from vehicle. 5. one’s scores need not reﬂect upon one’s intelligence. Example 2 Consider one’s happiness from vehicle. Arudha shows illusions and perceptions of the material world. 13. you can ﬁgure out the relevant house for each of the matters. 1. a scooter. a Hyundai car.
It shows the status of the native. Usually that decides what impression people form about one’s learning. Similarly. It shows true happiness from a vehicle. One’s true happiness from vehicle has nothing to do with the type of vehicle owned. One with Mars in A10 in D-10 may work at dynamic places or engineering com6 . 1st house stands for self. Beneﬁcs inﬂuencing the 4th house in D-16 show someone who is happy with his vehicle(s). We form an impression about one’s career based on the place and environment where one’s work takes place. For example. A10 in D-10 shows the maya associated with one’s karma (action career). It shows the how the native is perceived in the material world. In D-24. As shown above. One may be very happy with a Bajaj Chetak (an inexpensive two-wheel vehicle popular in India) or even a bicycle and one owning three Mercedes Benz cars may be unhappy with them and always dreaming of owning a better vehicle. 4th house in D-16 deals with happiness from vehicles. Arudha pada of nth house shows the maya associated with the matters signiﬁed by of nth house. compared to a Chetak owner. So this is shown by A4. So A4 in D-24 shows the school or university and the environment in which one’s learning takes place. This is the maya associated with “happiness from vehicle” in this material world. So A10 in D-10 shows one’s workplace. people perceive one with 3 Mercedes Benz cars as a happier person in the matter of vehicle. However. Someone with Saturn in A4 and Venus and Jupiter in 4th (in D-16) may own a small vehicle (i. perceived to be unhappy with respect to vehicles). people may not get the same impression. A4 in D-24 deals with the maya (illusion) associated with learning. If someone studied at an obscure university. its arudha pada (AL) stands for the maya associated with self. but be happy with it. Beneﬁcs inﬂuencing A4 in D-16 show someone who is perceived to be happy with his vehicle(s). What is it? If someone studied at IIT (a top engineering institute of India). 4th house deals with learning and education. perceived to be happy with respect to vehicle) but not be happy. While the ﬁrst house from lagna stands for true self.SJVC LESSON 14 Bhava Arudhas 3 Use of Arudhas Arudha padas show the maya (illusion) of material world. So planets inﬂuencing A4 in D-16 shed light on the physical vehicle owned by a person. But it is possible that people’s perceptions are wrong and the person who studied at IIT is less knowledgable.e. people may think that he is very knowledgable.e. Someone with Venus in own sign in A4 and Saturn in 4th (in D-16) may own luxurious vehicles (i. The 4th house in D-16 shows happiness from vehicle.
If one has a mean spouse. The 3rd house from lagna and the 3rd house from Mars show one’s true boldness and the 3rd house from AL shows how bold one is perceived. It can also show an authoritative spouse. A3 shows the maya surrounding one’s boldness. Maleﬁcs like Mars. the kind of people one usually interacts with. The 8th house from UL shows the longevity of marriage and the 2nd and 7th houses from UL show the end of marriage.e. The 3rd house in D-24 (chart of learning and knowledge) and D-10 (achievements in society) may show 7 . Its arudha shows how these blessings are perceived by the world. The 7th house shows relations and A7 (darapada) shows the illusion associated with them. see the chapter on “Remedial Measures”). it may show a long marriage to an argumentative and mean spouse. So upapada lagna shows one’s marriage and spouse. In D-24. Saturn and nodes in these houses from UL can result in troubles for the marriage and even a divorce. If Mars and Saturn are in UL and Jupiter is in the 8th from UL. one is considered unlucky in this matter. The 3rd house shows one’s boldness. darapada may show professional associates. Sun in UL can show a charming spouse from a respectable family. Ketu in UL can show spiritual (when good) or short-tempered (when bad) spouse. The 3rd house also shows one’s communication skills. i. For example. Based on the kind of people one deals with. we perceive the nature of one’s relations. one may have a noble spouse but the marital life will be very rough and there can even be a divorce. The weapons one possesses may drive those perceptions and A3 may show one’s weapons. propitiating Saturn and Mars can help (for more. world will think that (s)he has the blessings for the continuation of lineage. One important arudha pada used in Jyotish is upapada lagna (UL) . If one has a friend who is a famous ﬁlm star. it may show friends at college or colleagues in the pursuit of knowledge. Nature of spouse and the length of the marriage are two diﬀerent issues.SJVC LESSON 14 Bhava Arudhas panies. One with Jupiter in A10 in D-10 may work at a university or college or a court of law or a temple. If one has a friend who is a prostitute. Planets in UL show the kind of marriage one has and the kind of spouse one gets. If one has a noble spouse. people may get a negative impression about one’s dealings. In such a case. If Jupiter is in UL and Mars and Saturn in the 8th from it. The 12th house shows the blessings of ancients and maharshis for the continuation of lineage. In D-10. It shows what drives the perceptions of people about one’s boldness. In addition. it may show colleagues or friends in religious activities.the arudha pada of the 12th house. there is some glamour associated with one’s relations. Mars in UL may show a bold spouse (when good) and a quarrelsome spouse (when bad). Mercury in UL can show intelligent (when good) or indecisive (when bad) spouse. In D-20. Thus darapada shows the kind of people one associates with and that plays an important role in forming people’s impressions about one’s relations.
They vary signiﬁcantly from one place to another. the 9th house shows one’s fortune. A5 in D-20 shows the things based on which the world forms an impression about one’s devotion. All the principles of Vedic astrology should be understood and applied in the context of “desa” (country . devotion etc. A5 in D-24 shows the things based on which the world forms an impression about one’s intelligence in learning. The mantras one recites. Similarly. In this manner. shows the following one has. One with an advanced degree is assumed to be more fortunate with respect to learning than one with a simple degree. One may be an average writer. A political leader in a position of power is assumed to have a lot of following. shows one’s devotion (bhakti) in religious activities. The things that drive the world’s perceptions can be diﬀerent based on which world we are living in. The 5th house in D-20. When we interpret arudha padas. The 5th house in D-10. It can show the guidance received by one (i. One cannot become a good Vedic astrologer by memorizing a lot of tables. the 5th house may show intelligence. guru teacher). Thus the exact books written by one decide the perceptions of the world about one’s writing skills. In such a case. So A5 can show the trappings of power enjoyed by one. but not write any book. one’s scores in tests and one’s academic distinctions. following. It can also show awards. based on the degrees received by one. But the world forms an impression about one’s fortune in learning. Intelligent use of arudhas requires an astrologer to understand the world that the native lives in. we are talking about the things based on which the world forms an impression about an aspect of the native.SJVC LESSON 14 Bhava Arudhas one’s writing skills. from one age to another and from one class to another. it may show fortune related to learning. the chart of career. Let us take the 5th house as another example. In D-24. In D-24.place).

The world forms an impression about one’s following based on the power wielded by one. It shows intelligence. In such a case. but end up writing 20 books. So A3 in D-24 and D-10 may show the books or articles written by him.e. the poojas and the religious rituals one performs control the impression of the world about one’s devotion in religious matters. A3 shows the maya associated with one’s writing skills. One needs to understand the basics clearly and apply them intelligently. One may have excellent writing skills.age) and “paatra” (nature and class of the persons involved). the chart of religious activities. the chart of learning. So A5 shows them. So that is what A5 in D-24 shows. people may perceive him as a great writer. people may not really appreciate one’s writing skills. 8 . So A9 can show one’s higher degrees. “kaala” (time .
Cn is a key sign in this dasamsa. A10 is important in analyzing his activities. It shows public activities resulting in power and fortune. A9 is in Li and A10 is in Ta. Anything that rises in the material world and that can be directly seen by the material world is better seen in arudhas. Fortune does not mean owning million or billion dollars or ten palaces. Exercise 3 Consider a native with the dasamsa given in Chart 3. So students must familiarize themselves with bhava arudhas and use them as appropriate. A10 shows one’s public activities. Cn has A5. He had a quarrel with an international organization. It shows the things based on which the world forms an impression on how fortunate one is. Dasamsa is the chart of career.SJVC LESSON 14 Bhava Arudhas 4 Conclusion Exercise 2 may have shown one how several important matters are better seen in arudhas than in true houses. Its lord Moon is in A9. Being the link of all these important arudhas. A strong house of fortune does not imply these. over which he was stripped of world championshiop in a game. Example 3 Consider Indira Gandhi’s chart. which shows the following one enjoys and the trappings of power. Suppose we are dealing with the karma (activities) of a politician.

No wonder Indira Gandhi became India’s Prime Minister during the dasamsa Narayana dasa of Cancer (during 1960-1969). Its lord Venus is in Cn. Identify which house or arudha shows a public spat with a powerful body. But what the 10th house shows is one’s true activities in society. Venus is in Cn and Moon is in Li. How one’s activities rise and manifest in the material world is seen in A10 (rajya pada). It is shows by his 10th house. Jupiter is in Ta. which shows the trappings of fortune. But a strong A9 does! A9 shows the trappings of fortune.
