How to know a yoga is Benefic or Malefic.


How to know if a yoga is potent enough to take you to heights or just another planetary combination.
There are two types of astrologers now a days one who believe that yoga’s like Raajyoga don’t work and another who believe that they still work but now their meanings have been changes as per the Country, Time, and Person rule of Vedic Astrology. I am under the latter people who believe that Raajyoga do work we only need to judge them right. Our ancient seers were geniuses and there is no doubt in it and they also have seen so many things at that timer that were yet to be discovered and as we know their intelligence in still unbeatable so I can clearly say that where they say it’s a Raajyoga then also they are not making a mistake they are just referring to a yoga which is very much potent to bestow the native, good position, wealth and status as kings had in their times, in astrology we have to dive down into meanings of words and as per watching this we will find that in earlier times who were a king, a king was someone, who have control over a army, have all type of happiness if we see that in today’s concept,  we can say that a person having Raajyoga can be entrepreneur (he will have so many person working under him) he can have lot of money and enjoyments in life so Raajyoga is something that is essential in a chart and as per I have seen at-least one Raajyoga is present in every tom dick and harry chart. As our sages said and I believe that if Raajyoga is this much auspicious and good then sure it have to be result of good deeds done in past lives, so have everyone did good deeds in past lives, yes everyone do something good but is that thing that much good that he can make a potent Raajyoga, we can see Raajyoga in almost every chart but we don’t see Raajyoga working everywhere why.

Remember that this method should only be used in Raajyoga not in Dhanyoga because as we know in dhan yoga 11th house become an auspicious house but in Raajyoga assessment 11th is considered a malefic house, but in the same way as modification we can use the same chart, like while judging Dhanyoga we can take 11th house as benefic, and so on we can made improvements in this chart,

While reading “Falit Vikas” By “Pandit Ramyatna Ojha´ I found this method and fell in love with this once again I found this in “Triphala (Jyotish) of “Pandit Gopesh Kumar Ojha” under the book “Sushlokshatak” this method was also used, in astrological treatises there are a lot of Raajyoga mentioned but which one can change the life of the native and which will be normal one (this can also be used with normal good yogas too) so many eminent Sanskrit scholars have given so many methods on how to assess result of any Raajyoga based on principles of parashara (basic astrology) but this method that was given by pandit ramyatna ojha was well supported by pandit vetal shastri too and they two are most eminent scholars of astrology so let me introduce you to the method
These are the points given to houses, remember them for usage,
1st house +1 point, 4th house +2 points, 7th house +3 points, 10th house +4 points, 5th house +2 points and 9th house +4 points,
3rd house -1 point, 6th house -2 point, 11th house -3 point, 8th house -6 point, and 2nd and 12th house -0 points,
These calculation are completely in tune with basic parashari principles as propounded by sage parashara in his BPHS (Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra) and also as elaborated in Uddadayapradeep AKA laghuparashari. Thus clearly states that
  1. Ascendant lord is always auspicious
  2. If the ascendant lord be 8th house lord then also he will be auspicious
2nd AND 12th LORD:
These 2 lords are neither auspicious nor inauspicious, the place where their 2nd rashi is placed will decide whether they will be benefic or malefic, also their results will get modified by those planets with whom they are in conjunction, basically they are neutral, and they both will also be “Marak” there is no doubt in this statement,
Trine lord are always benefic (5th and 9th lord)
But if the trine lords are 8th lord too then they will become flawed having some flaws (some maleficence will be inside the planet)
But if the trine lord is 8th lord too and situated in 5th house then he will not be malefic.
If the trine lord be 12th lord then it will remain benefic
If the trine lord be 2nd lord then he will become “Marak” but still the power to give luck will be in the planet.
If the trine lord also become lord of a quadrant house then he will become most benefic “Raajyogkarak”
If the trine lord also be 6th lord then he will have some part of maleficence inside him but if he be placed in 5th house then he will impart only good effects.
If natural benefic be lords of quadrants then they will not remain benefic and if natural malefic be lords of quadrants then they will not remain malefic (means they will become neutral) and their result have to be decided based on placement of their another sign, 7th lord will always be “Marak” there is no doubt in it, in order Jupiter as 7th lord will be most powerful “Marak” the comes Venus and then mercury then moon, moon will become the least deadly ”Marak” but he will still be “Marak” if any of these benefic planets be 7th lord and they are also placed in 7th house then they will become very deadly and potent ”Marak”
8th lord is the worst malefic in the chart, but if 8th lord is also ascendant lord then he will leave his maleficence to a big extent (but as per my own thinking a little bit maleficence will be there)
If sun and moon becomes the lord of 8th house and they are placed therein then they don’t have the bad effect of being 8th lord but if they be placed somewhere else then the bed effect of being 8th lord will be inside them, the potential to do bad as being 8th lord will be inside them both.
3rd 6th and 11th lord are malefic.
If 3rd 6th and 11th lord are also quadrant lord then if they are malefic then they will be malefic but if they are benefic then they will be benefic.
Id 3rd lord be in 3rd, 6th lord be in 6th and 11th lord be in 11th then they will be benefic now matter they are neutral benefic or malefic.
  1. Imagine horoscope is of cancer ascendant and mercury, mars and Jupiter are conjunct then
Mercury 3rd lord = -1
Mercury 12th lord = -0
Mars 5th lord = +2
Mars 10th lord = +4
Jupiter 6th lord = -2
Jupiter 9th lord = +4
Summing all those up we get +7 as remainder so we can say this yoga results in +7 benefic points thus this yoga is benefic and planets involved in this yoga will give good results of the yoga under their MD-AD-PD combinations.
  1. Imagine a horoscope of cancer ascendant Saturn, Venus, mars and Jupiter and conjunct then
Saturn 7th lord = +3
Saturn 8th lord = -6
Venus 4th lord = +2
Venus 11th lord = -3
Mars 5th lord = +2
Mars 10th lord = +4
Jupiter 6th lord = -2
Jupiter 9th lord = +4
Summing all these up we get +4 benefic points thus we can say that this is a benefic combination.
  1. Imagine a horoscope of Leo Ascendant, Jupiter and Saturn are conjunct then
Jupiter 5th lord +2
Jupiter 8th lord -6
Saturn 6th lord -2
Saturn 7th lord +3
Remaining -3 malefic results thus it is a malefic combination for the native.
  1. Imagine a horoscope of Leo ascendant and Sun, Mars and Venus are in conjunction
Sun 1st lord +1
Mars 4th lord +2
Mars 9th lord +4
Venus 3rd lord -1
Venus 10th lord +4
Summing all these up we get +10 benefic points thus this is a benefic yoga.
  1. Imagine it is Gemini ascendant and Jupiter and Saturn are in conjunction
Jupiter 7th lord +3
Jupiter 10th lord +4
Saturn 8th lord -6
Saturn 9th lord +4
Summing all these up we get +5 benefic points thus it is a benefic combination.
This is a method given by “Pandit Ramyatna Ojha” in his book “Falit Vikas” this rule seems so good and it is good to and also it can be used in so many ways, like for example this can give us a clue in how to know if a yoga is malefic or benefic or how to know if a planet is benefic or malefic, like see in Virgo Saturn will be 5th and 6th lord having +2 and -2 there Saturn can be neutral in his result and there his effect have to be decided based on his house placement, rashi placement, D9 placement and nakshatra placement but in Gemini Saturn will be 8th and 9th lord and here he will get -6 and +4 thus he will contain -2 more maleficence inside him and for making him benefic more supporting factors have to be there as compared to Virgo ascendant, but as all major astrologers say (Few of them in which books I have read that they say too much mathematics is bad for predictive ability in astrology, Dr.Suresh Chandra Mishra, Shri J.N.Bhasin, Dr. B.V.Raman, Dr. Gouri Shanker Kapoor says this) so depending too much on this method is also not suggested as we know this table only shows their malefic and benefic nature as per their house lordship but in a yoga their rashi, D9, nakshatra placement and all others things also matter and we also should take them all in consideration and then we have to come to any conclusion after thinking a lot and after assessing a matter from all point of view we have to give our analysis, I have just given this method for learning and experimentation. The person who made this rule “Pandit ramyatna Ojha” was a very learned astrologer, scholar and guru of astrology and as per me his work should not have to be ignored.
I will request all people to experiment and research over this method and then come with conclusion.

How To Judge A House(Bhav) In Vedic Astrology

This is the most important and basic question in Vedic astrology and if you know answer to this question then you can successfully analyze a chart. Well this is not an easy thing and so many more concepts have to be taken in account too but here I will tell about the basic and most important principle on how to judge a house and find results and if you use this you can easily do reading of a chart.
Whenever any question comes to you and just see three things the house from which the question is related, the position of the house its lord and its Significator.
Step 1  – find the house from which the question is connected like 1st house for self related questions 2nd house for questions related to family and money, 3rd house for question related to younger siblings, hard-work, 4th house for problem related to mother, house, land, conveniences. 5th house for things related to education, progeny and so on, in this you can also see a thing can be seen by so many houses like for education 2nd house will show your primary education till up to school level,  4th house will show you mental education 5th house will show the field that you will choose as your main education also this will show about which thing you have an inner talent to do and then 9th house will show higher education also it will show the subject in which you can get masters degree or in which you will possess good level of knowledge. So for the first and basic thing is to find the houses connected to the question.
Step 1.1 – also see the house from that house, every question have a basic house and few sub houses related to that for example 5th house is basic house for education and 4th 2nd and 9th are sub houses for education, now also see the house from that concerned house for e.g. – 5th house from 5th house i.e. 9th house will also be showing education now 5th house is basic house 9th house is secondary house and 2nd and 4th are supporting houses for education
Step 1.2 – imagine the house from which question is concerned as first house and then analyze all other things respectively, for e.g. 10th house is for profession, 2nd from 10th 11th house will show your reward that you will get from 10th house profession and that is gain (the reward for working someone is gaining something) 3rd from 10th 12th house will show hard-ship in profession, like 12th house if for sleep and if you are working too hard and trying to get successful then its obvious that your nights will be disturbed one, 4th from 10th 1st house will show comfort from 10th house that is what is the comfort or working is the comfort for yourself why you work that is for your own self and that is 1st house you work to make yourself comfortable, 5th from 10th is family and 5th house is for good deeds saved from past lives and that is the case if you father is a big businessman and if he gives his company to you then obviously it will be a good deed saved from your past live that will make you do less hardship in matters related to 10th house, this rule can be expended too, 3rd house is 6th from 10th house 6th is work 10th is profession and work of profession is hard-work and that is what is denoted by 3rd house.
Step 1.3 – see the condition of that house in all 10 divisional charts they are D-1, D-2, D-3, D-7, D-9, D-10, D-12, D-16, D-30, and D-60. In Vedic astrology planets also aspect using house aspect (bhav drishti) in divisional too. See which type of signs are in the concerned house in all these 10 divisional charts, weather they have good signs bad signs, signs of neutral friends or enemy’s. Also see the divisional chart related to that query. Like D-1 for everything, D2 For money, D-3 for siblings, D-7 for children, D-9 for spouse and luck (this is very important division equivalent to D-1-main chart), D-10 for profession/job/career, D-12 for Parents, D-16 for spirituality, D-30 for all evils, And D-60 for everything especially things related to past karma (this division is even more important than D-1 and D-9 Sage Parashara Gives this one the utmost importance). In the divisional see the position of ascendant lord of that division lord of the house concerned in the Natal chart and also the house related to that specific area. Like in D-10 see the position of Ascendant lord of D-10 see the position of the planet who is 10th lord in D-1 chart and also see the Houses 1st 6th 7th and 10th in D-10 as 10th shows the self 6th shows your job, 10th profession and 7th business. Also see the planets placed in 1st 6th 7th and 10th house and planets aspecting therein in that particular divisional chart.
Step – 1.4 – see the planets placed in all those houses connected to the question in D-1 and also in that specific divisional chart and also in the main house (related to the question) in all those 10 divisional charts. And also consider aspects of planets same as their situation therein, in rashi chart use Rashi aspect, in Bhav Chalit and all those 9 divisional charts use planetary (house aspect). In placement of planets you have to see the 5 considerations of the planet if the planet is 1st exalted, 2nd mool-trikona, 3rd in own house 4th in bosom friends house and 5th having dig bala then the planet will shower good effects related to the house he owns and related to the house he is placed in.  If the planet is in 1st enemy sign, 2nd completely deprived of dig bala, 3rd being placed with or aspected by malefic 4th is combust 5th is debilitated then it will show bad effects of the house where he is placed and bad effects of the house he owns in this remember the planet who is combust will only destroy the house he is placed in and his signification but he will not destroy the house he aspects or owns. One more thing about being exalted is if planets are exalted in D-1 but debilitated in D-9 then he will do badly but if planet is debilitated in D-1 and exalted in D-9 then he will show good effects. Also if a planet is in the same sign as in D-1 and D-9 then he will show good effects. If a planet is both exalted in D-1 and D-9 then he will be extremely good but if a planet is debilitated in D-1 and D-9 then he will show 50% good effects and 50% bad effects. This is same with planetary aspect. Planets situated in 5 favorable houses will throw good effect and planet in 5 bad conditions will throw bad aspect. Also see the house ownership of planet for example if 8th lord 6th lord or 12th lord is situated in 1st house then it will destroy the house and if the are aspecting 1st house then also they will destroy the house, if in this situated you see any house except 1st house then one more question will rise, planet owning bad house from the ascendant and from that concerned house both will destroy the house but will destroy the house more severely. Let we take example of 10th house, 3rd lord is 6th from 10th and 3rd from ascendant so he will destroy 10th house, 6th house is 9th from 10th so he will not destroy 10th house, 8th house is 11th from 10th house so he will also not destroy the 10th house as much as 3rd lord will destroy he will destroy but he will partially destroy the house not completely. 12th lord is 3rd from 10th so he will also destroy the 10th house very badly. But 5th lord is 8th from 10th and 9th lord is 12th from 10th will they destroy the 10th house no. why? “Jatak Parijat” sates that ownership from ascendant is more important as compared to ownership from that concerned house expanding this rule to the rule enunciated in “Bhavartha Ratnakar”   I can say that ownership of houses from the ascendant is more important as compared to ownership of houses from that respective house but placement of planet is more important from the concerned house as compared to ascendant. But the main thing in astrology is synchronization. So that for the sake of learning you should always see both the aspects and come to a conclusion like for e.g. 9th lord is luck and if luck is supporting then the person will not do hard work so 9th lord will give the effect of 10th house but the desire of 10th house that is obtained from working on the thing will be missing. Like in the same way 5th house is stock market and children and it’s obvious that when you children will come to work then you don’t have to work that much then it will be death of your work (8th from 10th) and you will be enjoying your old age.
Step 1.5 – now see the placement aspect and conjunction over the planets over the houses related to the question, good planets aspect and aspect of those planets who owns good houses prove beneficial but those planets that are malefic in nature and those who owns bad houses for that particular ascendant will destroy the house by their aspect and conjunction over the house and houses related to the question. Lord of 1at 5th and 9th house is always good if natural benefic be lords of 4th 7th and 10th and placed in 4th 7th   or 10th house then they will be malefic otherwise neutral, if malefic be lords of these houses then they will loose their malefic and nature and they will become benefic planets, lords of 3rd 6th 8th 11th houses are malefic, 3rd house is worst malefic 6th is more malefic as compared to 3rd 11th is even more malefic and 8th is the most malefic houses in all over the chart, 2nd and 12th lord are neutral and the planets owning these signs will effect according to the houses in which their 2nd sign is placed and if lord of 2nd or 12th be sun or moon then their placement will decide their effect as malefic or benefic. As moon is being a separate ascendant due to this reason moon don’t get bad effect of being in a bad house unless he is highly afflicted.  This is same with the sun but as being a cruel planet he can do evil at more times as compared to moon. 1st lord will never become bad if he owns 8th house too then still he will not be bad, planets will effect as per where their mool-trikona rashi is placed in, for Gemini ascendant Saturn is a benefic planet because his mool-trikona sign falls in 9th house but for Virgo Saturn will be a malefic due to the reason because his main rashi (Mool-Trikona) Sign falls in 6th house. But if Saturn is posited in 5th house then he will do good, so basically this tells us that if the planet is placed in either signs then he will do the effect of his main sign but if the planet is posited in his sign then he will do the effect of the sign in which he is placed in.
Step 1.6 – also see the yoga’s happening in the house like if Saturn is posited in ascendant in Libra, Aquarius or Capricorn then he will make “Maha Purush Yoga” in then he will confer the good effects of the hw is placed in and of the houses he owns. There are too many yoga’s in Vedic astrology and it is very difficult to remember all of them so the basic rule is the favorable placement of a planet. If a planet is favorably placed then he will do well.
House lord
Step 2 – is to see the position of the house lord, if the planet is favorably disposed in main chart or in divisional then he will do good and if he is badly disposed in main chart or in divisional then he will do evil results, also you have to see aspect and conjunction over the house lord and also you have to see the position of the depositor of the house lord. The same rules that are applied in assessing the houses have also to be applied in assessing the effect of the house lord and its depositor along with this also see the Yogas happening with the planet and see his power and strength. See six fold strength of the planet and especially see his Dig Bala. If a planet is in Dig Bala then he will do well and if he is deprived of Dig Bala then he will do bad, see the aspect over house lord and conjunction of other planets with that house lord and they will show you the complete situation of house lord. Most of the rules are enunciated in the last part use the same rules to assess the power in a short see these things to see weather a planet is powerful or weak,
  1. See the sign in which he is placed in (own sign, main sign , exaltation sign, friendly sign will do good and debilitated sign, enemy sign will do bad)
  2. The house in which he is placed in (in good houses he will do good effect in bad houses he will do bad effects see the placement in house from ascendant from the house in question and also from the moon)
  3. The planets from whom he is getting aspect (aspects of benefic planets and the planets owning good houses will do bad and aspect of malefic planets or aspect of the planets who owns bad houses will do bad)
  4. The planet with whom he is conjunct ( conjunction with benefic planets or the planets owning good houses will be favorable and if either be the case then it will prove bad for the planet in question)
  5. The position of the planet in D-1, D-9 and in other divisional (position in D-1, D-9 And D-60 is most important to consider but position in other divisional will also make a great impact over the planet and also see the conjunction and aspect over the planets in divisional too)
  6. The lunar asterism in which the planet is placed in (see the nature of the lunar asterism and nature of its lord and then decide the effects of the planets)
  7. The position of the planet who becomes his lunar asterism lord and his ownership of houses and aspect and conjunction of planet over that
  8. The position of the depositor
  9. Check strength of the planet and yoga’s he is being involved in (assess strength using six fold strength)
  10. The Avastha’s of the planet
Significator is also a planet so assess the power of the significator as same as planet, if the significator is strong then the house will flourish and if significator be weak the effect will be diminishing. House shows the possibility, house lord shows the achievement and significator shows the happiness from that thing. There are basic significator like sun for 1st house Jupiter for 2nd mars for 3rd mercury and moon for 4th Jupiter for 5th Saturn and mars for 6th Venus for 7th  Saturn for 8th Jupiter and sun for 9th Saturn mercury sun for 10th and so on now there are some houses which have more than one significator like 4th house 6th house and 10th house they show more than one thing and thus their significance can be   divided too like mercury will shows mental intelligence and moon will show emotional stability for 4th house, mars will show victory over enemy and Saturn will show job with respect to 6th house and mercury will show professional qualification, sun will show status in profession and Saturn will show work in profession in relation to 10th house also more significations can be added like for example if you are to assess about maternal uncle from 6th house then take 6th house its lord and mercury as significator because mars and Saturn don’t have to don anything with maternal uncle. If house lord and significator all are destroyed the complete results are destroyed if only significator and house is destroyed then 75% destroyed and if house and house lord is destroyed then 50% is destroyed and if house lord and significator is destroyed then 75% is destroyed. One special rule related to significator are if the house significator is in the house the he will destroy the house this is a loose rule that need some understanding. There are total 9 planets and there are 2 complete benefic planet 2 conditional benefic and 5 malefic planets if we add gulika too then it will become 6 malefic. And also only one benefic has special aspect and here all 4 malefic have special aspects. So thinking logically no house in any horoscope can be free of malefic influence and it is truth in real life too no thing is like this of which a person gets complete comfort. And that’s why if the significator is in the house and if malefic effect is there then the house will get 75% destroyed and this will be the case why they consider significator in the house as malefic.  Just imagine Jupiter is in 5th house in his mail sign being in Mool-Trikona having good aspect then why he will do evil for the 5th house…
Vedic astrology is a vast ocean and the deeper you go into it the rarest gems you will find lying there, this is your dedication and practice that will make you and good astrologer over time. Here I have given few basic principles of Vedic astrology, hope the readers will enjoy reading this and learners will get to learn more from this, this was a small effort from my side If I have made any mistake then I am sure those who are big hearted will forgive me.

Introduction – By the entry of “Arabians” I will call the yavan. (As they are called in astrology) their entry into India had huge impact over Vedic astrology too and they gave us some new methods in astrology namely as solar return that we all know and use too, it is a fantastic method used in Vedic astrology now and it works so much accurately but by their entry into India something has been manipulated too, and that was divisional chart as considered in Vedic astrology, the method that we are using right now of making divisional charts are in vogue and it works perfectly but it is not what our sages have propounded, while reading “Falit Vikas” of “Pt. Ramyatna Ojha”, “Jatkadeshmarg” of “Pt. Gopesh Kumar Ojha” and “Jaimini Mukta” of “Dr. Suresh Chandra Mishra” I get to know that the method we use are not Vedic method of casting divisional chart but they are modified by others views and as we know that in ancient times books were not published they were kept in form of notes in hand written copies so when they got published so many things that was not genuine and you will get to see about these type of things in so many great classical books like “Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra” you will get to know that so many of things was not actually said by the sage but have been added, manipulated, modified later in hand written copies and then published and people are getting not the right or we can say complete data, the same with the calculations of divisional charts, they have been changed into the time of “Varahamihira” and he have changed the thing in his book “Brihatjatak” and he also took the favor of the yavan people, and because the change have been made on very ancient time thus all the rules and have been based on that and new books also gave the calculation of divisional charts in the same way as Varahamihira gave in his book. Thus the traditional method are tested and have been used in India from thousands of years and the 2 eminent authors “Dr. Suresh Chandra Mishra and Pt. Gopesh Kumar Ojha” after knowing about these ancient method still in their books on astrology (which they have written for beginner’s) have gave the traditional method not the ancient method of sages, this shows that they knew the technique but they also know that all the astrological books Viz “Brihatjatak” “Faladeepika” “Saravali” have given the rules based on the new method so it should be studied but as per my own view we should also have to know our real method given by sages due to two main reason first by knowing them we can have more scope for research in astrology as I know that using divisional in astrology is quiet a much difficult work and I am of firm opinion that if the method of sages be used then the work will be more easy and result be more accurate and secondly this will also give us some clues to interpretation of some rules in astrology that are must to be understood in order to learn astrology completely,
Background – Our sages have taught us that in astrology there are basically 10 divisional that are mainly used in a nativity, they are D1, D2, D3, D7, D9, D10, D12, D16, D30, and D60. Under these 6 main and most essential divisions that must be considered are D1, D2, D3, D9, D12 and D30. And before giving any judgement we have to completely check the all these charts. Under all these 10 divisions, the method of casting of D2, D3 and D30 have been changed, so let me here tell you what are the method of calculating these charts in the times of sages.
The main question that arises is that why no other planet have their sign being used in D2 and why sun and moon don’t have their sign in D30 why, because it have been changed in our Vedic culture they were there, let me start with D2 as D1 is basic chart there can be no change in making that,
Hora – the shloka in “Vriddhakarika” of “Jaimini Stutra” states a shloka that:-
The half part of a sign is called hora, there are 24 horas, in which the signs Aries to Pisces gets repeated Twice. Thus calculating this way in all 12 signs there become 24 horas, the cycle from Aries to Pisces get repeated 2 times and hora circle completes, based on this the hora chart becomes like.
0 -15 degree13579111357911
16-30 degree2468101224681012
Dreshkan – The “Vriddhakarika” over “Jaimini Sutra” states that:-
1/3 part of a sign is Dreshkan in this way for 12 signs there are 36 Dreshkan, they should be counted in order from Aries to Pisces 3 times, thus calculating this method the D3 table will be,
0-10 degree147101471014710
11-20 degree258112581125811
21-30 degree369123691236912
The calculation of D7, D9. D12 is as same in both the methods but for the sake of convenience let me also make their chart,
Saptamsha – D7- chart in Odd signs they start from the same sign and in even signs they start from 7th sign therein
Navamsha – D9- chart in Movable sign they start from the sign itself in fixed sign they start from 9th sign therein and in mutable signs they start from 5th sign therein.
SignsAr, Le, SgTa, Vi, CpGe, Li, AqCa, Sc, Pi
Dwadsamsha – D12- chart in all the signs the D12 chart is counted from the same sign therein.
Trisamsha – D30- Trisamsha is 1/30th division of a sign, this is different from the tradition popular today, in ancient times it was of 1 degree each as it is with all other divisional chart, a sign of 30 degree divided by 30 thus gives 1 and one the same basis 1 degree for each D30, this is also stated in “saravali”
These were the 6 divisions in their original form as stated by our great sages, all other divisions remain the same in their computation, and I presented the real method because I think it can be more accurate and precise in prediction if used.

How to do Timing of Events Using Planetary Transit’s in Vedic Astrology, Part – 1


In Vedic astrology there are several methods of timing of events, they all can be used and if used properly give good results, but you also have to know when to use which thing in which way.

Few Methods to Time Events in Vedic Astrology are:-
Using Dasha
Using Transit
Using Natural Age of Planets.
Using Special Methods like Lomesh Anshak Paddhati, Sarvatobhadra Chakra.

Today here we will be discussing about Transit.

First this should must be understood that transit have their own limitations, transits works in respect to dasha and Antardasha, like for example transit of moon, sun, even of Saturn will be in same sign for more than once in lifetime for a person having medium life span of 60 years, so dasha and Antardasha should always be kept in mind, sadhesati in dasha of Marak will become more dreaded as compared to sadhesati in dasha of yogakarak.

Secondly under transit there is doubt whether to see transit from ascendant or from moon, I will tell you to use both the technique and give conclusion after watching them both,
Transit from ascendant will show the condition presented and from moon it will show the mental conditions of the native or the impact of the event over the mind of the native, 

After that also check the transit of planet from their own position in birth chart, this will also give very good clues about the events likely to occur. Movement of planets with respect to their natal chart position give result relating to their karkatwa (significations),
Also note the house where combined effect of Jupiter and Saturn falls that house will be activated for the time period and house in your horoscope where that sign falls will become active like right now check Leo in your horoscope where Jupiter is in transit and Saturn is aspecting using 10th aspect, see in which rashi Leo falls and in which house and you will see events related to that house have been happened or not. Like in next year when Jupiter will be in Virgo his 5th aspect will be on Capricorn where Saturn is already aspecting using his 3rd aspect and in this way next year Capricorn will be activated. 

if anyone comes to you to ask question, then put transit of that time over his chart and you will be able to know the problem of the native, the house being most afflicted will be the house related to which the native will be facing problems. 

To know if a transit will be favorable or not then see the rashi in which any planet is transiting, then see how many points that rashi gets in BAV (Bhinna Ashtak Varga) of that planet and how many points that rashi gets in SAV (Sarva Ashtak Varga) in in BAV 4 or more than 4 then good result if in SAV more than 28 then good results, if not then bad effects. 

Also see in which Navamsha planet is transiting, like Jupiter in Leo is in Scorpio Navamsa, now in your chart see where Leo is and where Scorpio is and check the same in Navamsha chart and then go to results. 

While judging the transits also see aspect of other planets over that planet, his conjunction with other planets in transit, also see if in natal chart the planet is transiting over other planets natal chart position , this can trigger few important events, like 5th lord transiting over natal Venus can give love relationship, or over natal mars can give attraction towards another sex or can give fights too, also see placement of planets to each other like Jupiter-Saturn in 4-10 axis in transit can give jobs to so many people but Jupiter in 6th house in transit from natal Saturn can give problem in professions too. 

In any sign 0 to 3.45 degree is ruled by Saturn, 3.45-7.30 Jupiter, 7.30-11.15 mars, 11.15-15.00 sun, 15.00-18.45 Venus, 18.45-22.30 mercury, 22.30-16.15 moon, 26.25-30.00 ascendant, the degree division for planets are same in every sign, now just suppose Saturn is transiting in Libra and in BAV of Saturn Libra gets 5 points, so see in BAV of Saturn which planets gave him points, let us suppose that sun, mars, Jupiter, Venus and ascendant have given point in Libra in Saturn’s BAV. 
So when Saturn will go through that portion of rashi where their degrees falls Saturn will give his effect and at other places he will be ineffective. In this case Saturn will give his effect when he will be in 3.45 degrees to 18.45 degrees and again he will give effect when he will be in 26.25 to 30.00 degree of Libra, at another degrees he will be inactive for the native. This is called kakshya, using this method timing of event using transit becomes easier. 

If dasha or a direct planet is running (who is in direct motion in birth chart) and in transit he becomes retro then his special effects will be come to felt. And if dasha of a planet is running who is retrograde in birth chart then his effects will be come to felt very powerfully when he becomes direct in transit. 

Also some special techniques should have to be used while timing events using transit like Sarvatobhadra chakra and vedha and all that on which I will write sometimes later.

Past Birth Astrology: How to know Pending Past Karma & Purpose of Birth in Vedic Astrology from Divisonal charts


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here in this article today I am going to discuss few techniques from which you can know about pending karma and life mission of the native in which direction his life will flow basically for doing which type of work and for returning which type of work any native have taken birth,
First, let me tell some basic things then I will share two techniques Pending karma finding technique given by Saptarishis Astrology. 

Using Jagganath Dreshkan for finding main life purpose given by Shri Jagganath Center

In a birth chart check the few things at first  See the house and Rashi placement of the sun and his conjunction and relationships with other planets that will show the thing in which soul will be comfortable and also see AK in the same manner in D1 and in D9 to find what soul desires. 

Check the placement of Rahu and Ketu in D1 and D9 and also check their relationship with other planets as they will show karmas with respect to the sun (soul) moon (mind) and so on, also keep remember that Jupiter and Rahu both have 5th and 9th special aspects which are for past life and future life but Jupiter shows blessings and Rahu shows curse.

Also, see all the things in D60 (only after rectifying birth chart) and also see all the things in D45and D30 too. Also, see the position of AK from Ascendant in D1 and D9 and also see the mutual relationship between AK and AmK. See the 5th house and 9th house their lords and their significations also see PK as he represents 5th house of horoscope

Techniques II.

Saptarishis Astrology technique given out by Sunil. 
Under this technique see the Rashi number falling in 6th house 8th house and 12th house and then see those houses from birth ascendant and then see planets placed therein, yoga being formed therein and aspects therein and this will show which karma is pending for the native and should have to be done. These houses become karmic houses,

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
For Aries Ascendant 6th 8th and 12th house are karmic houses, planets placed their and aspect therein will become karmic planets and also lords of that house also will become karmic planets (by the way all planets are karmic). For Taurus Ascendant 7th 9th and 1st house, for Gemini Ascendant 8th 10th and 2nd house, for cancer ascendant 9th 11th and 3rd house, for Leo 10th 12th and 4th house, for Virgo 11th 1st and 5th house, for Libra 12th 2nd and 6th house, for Scorpio 1st 3rd and 7th house, for Sagittarius 2nd 4th and 8th house, for Capricorn 3rd 5th and 9th house, for Aquarius 4th 6th and 10th house and for Pisces 5th 7th and 11th house.

See where lord of these houses are placed and which planets are placed in these house and planets placed in these houses own which house and also see which planets aspect these houses and which planets and houses are being aspected by those planets who are sitting in these houses, all this will show pending karma of the native which has to be done by the native. 

Jagganath Dreshkan method handed down by Sanjay Rath Parampara was given by Vristi Larsen.

Make D3 chart using Jagganath method, it is given in Jagganath hora, method of calculation is not being given to me as it will make it complex just open jhora and then open D3 chart and then under option choose Jagganath hora and now chart opens, under that chart see the 3rd house as Ascendant and if 3rd house is vacant then see where 3rd lord is placed and that house as Lagna. 

See rashi aspect, planetary aspect see which planets are in 3rd house, or with 3rd lord, their signification, house lordship in D3 and yoga’s they are forming all would have impact over this and will show the karma for which the native have taken birth, for example 5th lord in 3rd house and 3rd lord in 5th house and Jupiter aspecting 3rd house using rashi aspect and mercury aspecting using Planetary aspect clearly shows that native is born for becoming author and write books, subject should be decided by the most powerful planet or by combining influence of all planets and houses.

P.S.- Method of making Jagganath Drekkana:-

Among the various dreshkan, the Parashar and Jagganath dreshkan traverse the trines to the sign. Whilst with the Parashar dreshkan the allotment is to the first, fifth and ninth houses, instead, the Jagganath dreshkan traverses the movable, fixed and dual signs respectively, always starting from a movable sign.

Does Raj Yogas, Vipreet Raaj Yogas and NBR has major role in Vedic astrology

We all are familiar with these words. Now let me explain what it means. But before watching anything see what they have in common and that is one word. Raaj Yoga. They are common in all three of them. 1st one is simply raaj yoga and other 2 are their modifications, but basically all of them are raajyogas.

What is a Raaj Yoga – Raaj means kings and yoga means combinations, literally meaning those combinations which have been found in the horoscopes of kings. Now who were kings in ancient times someone who is authorities’, powerful, enjoys luxuries. Have all kinds of comforts were kings in that time, so in present context someone having these qualities in their lives can be termed as having Raaj Yoga. Now for fructification of raajyoga it should have to be backed by proper power and good dasha and Antardasha, we have so many raajyogas and almost every planet can make raajyoga. So it is very much essential to have dasha periods of that planets making raajyoga in appropriate times to enjoy the fruits of raajyoga. I will be making them clear as the topic will go on further. So let’s start.
  1. Raaj Yoga – in any horoscope quadrants 1-4-7-10 houses are known as abode of lord Vishnu, one who enjoys all type of comforts and one for whom all comforts are being made and provided, and all trines 1-5-9 are Lakshmi houses she is goddess for abundances, prosperity and money, blessings. See here that ascendant lord is both a quadrant and a trine lord and hence he is the most powerful and potent raajyoga karaka and if any type of raajyoga is happening with the help of ascendant lord or having ascendant lord then that raajyoga becomes more powerful and is bound to fructify. Because ascendant is what a native is at birth what a native has born with and raajyoga being made with having ascendant lord in (paka lagna) or in ascendant will surely give his effect to the native, whole of his lifetime. Not be bound by dasha and Antardasha, ascendant lord is that much mighty that if you read classics carefully then you will find that for fructification of any type of good thing in a natives life lagna lord must be strong if it is not so then the native will not enjoy completely. Fully. Because what will you do of a huge bank balance if you can’t stand from wheelchair. Arudh lagna is the illusion that you create of yourself in front of the world. (Only in the case where exceptions are taken for calculation of Arudh as Sanjay Rath does, if you follow K.N.Rao then this rule will not apply so you can take two views. If raajyoga are being made from Arudh lagna which have been made taking exceptions then you can say that the native have that much raajyoga that he would be able to create an illusion of it in front of the world, means having that much money that he can buy a Ferrari and can show it to the world. And if raajyogas are being made with respect to Arudh lagna being counted without taking exception then you can say that in char dasha of that rashi where raajyoga is being made or in Antardasha of that rashi person will have risen in his life, the rule can also be applied to the 1st method of Arudh lagna calculation and can also be extended to any rashi dasha or any planet dasha who is being included in the yoga, in K.N.Rao method of calculating Arudh lagna if raajyoga is forming with respect to that Arudh then you can say that the person will have raajyoga but will not show it, ( it will depend more on him)). If AtmaKarak is also in the raajyoga then it means that the soul is desiring for the raajyoga and also will achieve it, this is the parashari raajyoga  in the same way Jaimini raajyoga forms when Ak, Amk, Pk, Dk, 5th lord, is connected or have any type of connection with each other either in Rashi or Navamsha. If more in rashi less in Navamsha then there will be more possibility of raajyoga and less fructification and if more in D9 and less in D1 it shows that person will not be thinking of getting some type of raajyoga but will get and enjoy that too (Take Jaimini Aspects primarily in analyzing Jaimini raajyogas). Gk will tend to destruct raajyoga. 6th 8th and 12th lord will also tend to destruct raajyoga also taking 7/8 Char karaka’s is all your decision as Parashara and Jaimini both said it all depends on the astrologer which method to choose. Also see the position of the rashi/house in which raajyoga is being made from Ascendant, Ascendant lord, Arudh lagna, Ak, and it will show in which it will be going to work like in 12th house it will show fructification in foreign lands, in parashari raajyoga also see the placement of raajyoga making planets in D9 if they are in 6-8-12 to each other then it will be a waste in some manner. More can be written over this but for keeping it short and simple I am stopping here. More will be revealed sometimes later.
  2. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

  3. Vipreet Raaj Yoga – we all are familiar with simple mathematics in which we all have most probably learnt about two negatives makes one negative, the same is the case with VPRY. In these the lord of 6th house 8th house and 12th Are placed in these house either in their own house will make this yoga. Like 6th lord in 8th or 12th house, 8th lord in 12th or 6th house or 12th lord in 6th or 8th house make this yoga. In this one thing in very much important that the planets have to be weak this is the basic fundamental principle. 6th lord or 8th lord or 12th lord have to be weak if they be in their own house 6th lord in 6th 8th lord in 8th or 12th lord in 12th then they will not make this yoga. Lord of a bad house situated in another bad house only with another bad planet or aspected only by another bad planets make this yoga, if any benefic get included in this then the benefic planet will lose his power to do benefic and also the yoga will get nullified, but what happens when a planet connected with this yoga is also a benefic like in Aquarius ascendant mercury and moon in 12th house see here mercury is also lord of auspicious 5th house so it will create problem in matters related to 5th house but will give good in matters related to 8th house, rather than saying good most probably I will say that he will give no negativities of 8th house. The weaker they become the more powerful will be the effects of the yoga. Now see there are 2 types of weakness let me quote an example 8th lord in gandanta or 8th lord in 12th house with 6th lord aspected by 12th lord, now in the first case all the goods and bad of 8th house will be destroyed but in the latter one only negativities of the 8th house will be destroyed good effects will always come, always keep this in mind.
  4. Neech Bhang raajyoga – Neech bhang means cancellation of debility it is a state when a debilitated planet which is considered weak becomes powerful. Exalted planets can also lose their power but we will not talk about that.  In this case any planet who is debilitated becomes supported in one way or another that the weakness caused in them due to debility gets pacified and they becomes not like exalted but becomes capable of giving good, (debilitated malefic in quadrants are good –  their karkatwa will prosper but house ownership will suffer and also the depositor of the debilitated planet will become stressed) when the planet in which sign planet becomes exalted is in quadrant to Kendra or the planet who becomes exalted in the sign in which a planet is debilitated is in quadrant to ascendant or the depositor is in quadrant then Neech Bhanga raaj yoga happens. I am only taking placements in quadrants from ascendant because a planet being in quadrant to moon in a common thing that will be there for at least 2.5 days and NBRY is not this much common. So only take the position in quadrants from ascendant. Also I have left few things like being aspected by depositor gives NBRY. Because it gives power to the planet not NBRY.  This is to be understood, it is only because there is a statement in BPHS that planets in quadrants is most powerful and those are in aapoklimas are least powerful. So based on that this rule is derived. Also one more thing that I want to say here is that when an exalted planet is situated with a debilitated one then the exalted will lose his power and debilitated will gain power.
Judgement of chart is not a children’s play and so many things have to be kept in mind. Not everyone becomes astrologers very few are those who becomes. With this I conclude this writing, saying that you don’t choose to be an astrologer astrology chooses you. Be blessed and please if you are in problem consult a potent and pious astrologer.

How to do micro Root Cause analysis and Prediction from Divisional Charts

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Kalyan verma in his book on astrology named saravali wrote
The effect of a horoscope should be predicted according to the strength in divisions of houses without which one can-not take even one step in astrology.
By writing this what Kalyan verma hinted at was 2 things 1st of them is that while assessing strength and weakness of a horoscope besides seeing Shad Bala (Six Fold) strength we also have to see Sapta Vargaigkya Bala (Strength of planets in 7 Divisions). And the 2nd thing is that prediction related to planets and things have to be done in accordance to divisional charts.
What is a Divisional Chart: – it is basically sub division of main Rashi chart. Like hora is 2 division of rashi chart that’s why it is called D2, in this a rashi of 30 degree is divided into 2 parts of 15-15 degrees each. Likewise in the same way there are 16 basic divisions given by Parashara minimum that are being used are 6 divisions and maximum 20 divisions there are more divisions and very few astrologers use them. In this article basically we will be seeing 20 divisions. And they are enough for natal horoscopy. In this article I will not deal with how to make it and also will not go in how many more methods are available of making them. I will take them in some another article. In this article basically I will be dealing with 1. How to read a divisional chart. 2. How to predict using them. 3. Techniques that can be applied up to them.
Parashara and modern astrologers: – Parashara suggests us to use D1, D2, D3, D4, D7, D9, D10, D12, D16, D20, D24, D27, D30, D40, D45, and D60. Whereas modern astrologers use 4 more divisions to make then 20 divisions they are D5, D6, D8, D11, hence adding 4 more charts to the 16 charts divisions we get 20 divisional charts and we will use them in predictions.
What they stand for.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now how to predict: – house lordship of planets and their placement in rashi or houses only have to be seen from D1 not in any divisional except D9 for rashi placement and bhava chalit for house placement. Bhava chalit is a totally different concept. Placement in rashi in divisional chart is only seen for judging effect and conditions of planets like in D9 we only see rashi placement of planets to assess their strength like if the planet is in same rashi and same Navamsha then the planet is vargottam that means powerful. And will give goof effects like in the same way if any planet is in same rashi in D1 and D10 then the planet becomes vargottam for D10 and will give good results relating D10 especially in own Dasha Antardasha, natural years. Favorable Transit Time.
In any divisional chart you only have to see the ascendant of the divisional chart and concerned houses, like for siblings Ascendant of D3 and 3rd house its lord and significator. Also in this or younger brother 3rd house, for 2nd younger brother 3rd from 3rd 5th then for next younger brother 3rd from 5th 7th for elder brother 11th 9th 7th and so on.  Other houses are also used but not for making judgement but for assessing effects of dasha and Antardasha. Two type of things can be done using divisional chart first to know the deeper and detailed analysis of a specific house. The promise of fructification, and how and when it will fructify, see for prospects related to progeny. There can be 2 things 1st to know progeny is promised on not and which type of progeny it will be good in nature or bad, male female, etc. and 2nd is when will progeny come, so for the 1st thing see ascendant in D7 and then 5th house in D7 and other houses and then see position of their lords in D1 and D7 and also the position of significator Jupiter in D1 and D7, now what is the 2nd thing is when someone can expect of progeny for that see the planets placed in quadrants and trines in D7 will show that in their dasha and Antardasha things can happen related to that divisional chart. In this too there is power. Like an exalted planet in Kendra in D7 is more likely to give progeny as compared to a normal planet in quadrant in D7. See these 2 type of effects are to be seen from divisional charts. 1st thing will happen or not. 2nd in which way it will happen 3rd what it will happen. See analysis of any of the divisional chart have to be done with respect to main rashi chart. Divisional charts are here to make our judgement clear and simple in Vedic astrology. See if mars is bad in D1 but good in D10 then we can say mars will be generally bad but good for profession. As see every coin have two faces no planet is completely good or bad in the same way. A planet can be good in D10 and bad in D9 means good for profession and bad for marital life so in his dasha and Antardasha he will give lot of success in professional pursuits but bad results in marital life. Then suppose if it be dasha of 20 years of Venus then pay attention to Antardasha and judge the effects of their lords in all divisional charts. So before predicting for any dasha and Antardasha see placement of the planet in all divisional charts.
Also there are few deities related to specific divisional charts that shows spiritual aspect of that field and that can also be understood by using divisional charts. The divisional chart of utmost importance is D60 which stands for past life karmas. If any planet is having bad deity associated with him in D60 then it shows that in previous life he did something bad related to that area and now in this life that planet will give bad effect. As one aspect of our life is also spiritual so that part is signified by deities of divisional charts. And if you understand them properly then a new dimension of Vedic astrology leaning will open in front of you and the best way to learn them is to read storied about them given in various puranas and sastras.
A planet which is combust or defeated in birth chart is useless in all divisional charts. Other planets like someone debilitated in birth chart but own house in D12 means planet will be good for parents. Rashi chart is just a general view whereas divisional charts is specific detailed view.
7 things that have to be seen in divisional charts are. 1. Friendly or inimical rashi position, 2. Own exalted or debilitated houses placement. 3. Position from ascendant. 4. Position from another planet. 5. Aspect. 6. Combination. 7. Yogas. Planet in friendly rashi good for that divisional chart and good for that area in inimical rashi bad for that divisional chart and area. Same rule should be applied to own house exalted or debilitated. Position from ascendant is an important thing. Planet placed in quadrants and trines will give good effects of that divisional chart and in their dasha will give good results related to that divisional charts in which they are in quadrant or trines and if they be in 3, 6, 8, 12 houses then in their dasha Antardasha they will show bad effects related to that divisional chart. Planet in 8th shows death and 3rd shows retirement.  Any planet in 3rd house in D10 can show retirement from job in his dasha Antardasha. Any planet in 8th house can show in his dasha Antardasha death of job and birth of business or only death and planet in 6th or 12th will signify joblessness or bad times related to profession. Position from other planets is also important like if you are judging D10 then see the position of all planets from ascendant of D10 ascendant lord of D10 6th house of D10 for job 7th house of D10 for business 10th house of D10 and 10th lord of D1 chart in D10 and so on. Now aspects planets also have aspects over each other in divisional charts and based on that effects should be judged like 10th lord of D10 aspecting 10th lord of D1 in D10 can show a good career in their Dasha Antardasha. Combination also works in the same way in divisional charts. Now coming to yogas if lagna is in paap kartari meaning 2 malefic in 2-12 houses from ascendant one in 2nd and one in 12th house from ascendant will show that all significations of that divisional charts have to be lost. No significant effect will be felt also karako bhav nasay will happen in divisional like Jupiter in 1st house in D7 will show karako bhav nasay and in his dasha Antardasha and in general will show difficulty problem related to progeny and matters related to D7.
Transit and all rules related to it can also be applied to all divisional charts and also Ashtak varga can be made for all divisional charts. And then their results have to be judged.
Based on these divisional charts birth time can also be rectified and this the most potent tool for birth time rectification.

An Insight on Jamini Astrology: Basic Understanding on Jamini Aspects, Karka, Argala and Jamini Raaj Yogas in D1 and D9.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The main propagator of Vedic astrology in kaliyuga is sage Parashara and Jaimini, Parashara wrote Brihat parasar hora sastra. And Jaimini wrote Jaimini sutras where he himself very clearly wrote that I am only saying here those things which have been left by ancestors before me and the areas in which more light have to be putted in that’s the reason why what Jaimini wrote we can find nowhere and that too he wrote in an coded language. That can only be decoded by katpayadi varga that is a hard nut to crack. But in no way he was proposing a new way or tradition in astrology as he himself was disciple of son of Parashara what he wrote was just the teachings of Parashara explained in detail and that’s the reason that you can find so many things related to Jaimini Jyotisha in Brihat Parashara hora sastra.

Basics of Jaimini part of astrology known as Jaimini astrology.

Aspects – different from parashari astrology where we use aspects of planets in Jaimini astrology there are aspects of rashis. Means each rashi is watching another rashi that makes a connection between all of them. Every movable sign aspects all fixed sign leaving one adjacent to it. In the same way ever fixed sign aspects all movable sign leaving the one adjacent to it. Every dual sign aspects all other dual signs. If any planets are posited in these houses then they will also aspect each other and other signs too. Like see if Saturn is in Aquarius and Venus is in Capricorn and moon is in Leo then as per this Saturn and moon have mutual planetary aspect and Venus and moon both have mutual rashi aspect, but here Saturn besides aspecting moon in Leo is also aspecting Aries, Cancer, and Libra. And his effects on these rashis and in which houses they fall will be permanent devoid of dasha and antardasha.

Karaka – there are 3 types of karkas 1st are natural karkas, 2nd are fixed karkas and 3rd are char karkas. Natural karkas are like sun for father, government, and so on fixed karkas are like stronger between sun and Venus will be for father. These all are explained by Parashara in his book what Jaimini introduces new to us is char kakas where he guides us that planets irrespective of his rashi only take degrees and then place them in ascending/descending order. The highest of them will me Atmakarak signifying soul. Known as the king of the horoscope every activity have to be guided by him. If he is weak then all of the charts prospects will get destroyed. Atmakarak is the main thing Atma meaning soul consist everything in himself and it is the base for everything. A major lesson related to Atmakarak native is must have to learn and 12th from AtmaKarak in Navamsha will show ishta devta the deity that will guide soul towards liberation. Next in order the planet having 2ndhighest degree is called Amatyakarak is the one who will give food to the soul (AtmaKarak) he is the minister in the chart like king is incomplete without minister a powerful Atmakarak is incomplete without a powerful Amatyakarak. He is the 2nd most important planet in the order. The placement of Amatyakarak from ascendant will show how the professional life of the native will be. The 3rd one is Bhratrikarak signifying brother and guru. Based on Bhratrikarak auspicious deity is decided. Next in order comes MatriKarak signifying mother and father basically parents. Next comes Putrakarak signifying son and next in order comes gyatikarak signifying relatives and enemies and next comes darakarak signifying spouse. Darakarak will also signify death and gyatikarak relatives. Their placement in rashi and Navamsha have to be judged to know their effects on parts of lives.

Some controversies lies there is one controversy in deciding to take 8 charkarkas or 7. Parashara and Jaimini both says that users are independent in choosing to use 8 or 7 and some opine that if 2 karkas clash then use one of them as alternative karaka. Now here one question that comes in mind is that what if more than one karaka coincides. Here there are 2 things that I want to say K.N.Rao says that if you calculate planets up to minutest degrees then there are no chances of clashing of 2 karkas. Whereas Sanjay Rath and some other astrologers add one more karaka after MatriKarak as pitrakaraka. This seems right to some extent as if there is char significator for mother then why not for father. But then one thing that comes in mind is that when both Parashara and Jaimini told karkas they told about 7 karkas not 8 and also told to use rahu for replacement not for making a new karaka. Here I will leave this up to readers to choose what they want. As both the system can give amazing results.

Dashas – Parashara told us about nakshatra dasha like Vimshottari dasha, Kalachakra dasha, mool dasha whereas Jaimini teaches us about rashi dasha based on sign whereas nakshatra dasha are based on lunar asterisms. I will be writing over them in the next article.

Pad- pad means position, simply meaning position in this material world. Count the distance of rashi lord from the rashi and then count the number next to the house lord for example if 7th lord is in 11th house then 3rd house will be pad of 7th house because 7th lord is in 5 houses away from his house in 11th house and 5 houses away from 11th house is 3rd house so pad of 7th houses falls in 3rdhouse known as darapada. Pad of any house will show all the things related to that house and planets related to pad will become connected to that aspect of life. for example if pad of 6th house is in Libra and Saturn is also in Libra then it can show that there will be a strong enemy because Saturn is strong being exalted in pad of 6th house that stands for enemy’s. Pad of 1st house is known as Arudh lagna showing position of native in society and the way in which he is viewed in society and his position power and authority. 2nd pad that will be the pad of 2nd house will show family and money. 3rd house pad will show courage, bother and so on as in the series 4th house pad will show happiness etc. 7th house pad will show relationship and 12th house pad will show marriage. Planets connected to 12th house pad will be potent to give marriage and also from the 12th house pad known as upapada and 2nd from that marital bliss, marital life is to be judged. Planets associating with upapada in D1 and D9 will give marriage. Here too is a controversy some says that pad of any house can’t be in 1st or 7th house while some don’t follow this rule. Readers can choose himself as best. But what I will suggest is use exception with 8 char karkas and 7th char karkas without taking exception in calculating pad lagna.

Special ascendants – like rising ascendant in rashi chart Jaimini introduces new ascendants too and also have given some specific formulas for counting them. Like he told about Hora lagna dealing with wealth and Ghatika lagna dealing with power and authority and a planet connected with lagna and hora lagna will become special significator for wealth and a planet connecting with lagna and ghatika lagna becomes special significator for power and status and a planet connecting with all 3 of them becomes extremely powerful in giving all goods to the native in the same way there are Shree lagna showing the position of Lakshmi in horoscope and Sudasha showing her movement through the life of the native.

Argala – in these there are 2 sections 1st is argala planet supporting and 2nd virodh argala planet opposing, any planet that is in 2nd 4th and 11th house from any house becomes primary supporters and 12th 3rd and 4th becomes opposites of those supporters and will tend to obstruct the result of that house whereas the planet making argala will tend to give effect of that house and will tend to save effect of that house. Effect will be there or not that have to be judged on the basis that which one is stronger argala or virodh argala. The virodh meaning opposition will be in 12th for 2nd 3rd for 11th and 10th for 4th here there is an exception that if there are more than 1 malefic in 3rd house then rather than making obstruction they will support. 2nd argala will be made by 5th and 8th house and opposed by 9th and 6th house respectively.

Raajyoga – next and last lesson on this comes with raajyoga. Just like there are so much raajyogas in parashari astrology in the same way there are so many yogas in Jaimini astrology too and we can’t remember them all but as we remember their formula that connection between Kendra and trikona lord gives rise to raajyoga in the same manner in Jaimini astrology connection between AtmaKarak, Amatyakarak, Putrakarak, Darakarak and 5th house and its lord will give rise to raajyoga. Mutual aspect between Venus and moon is also raajyoga. Now you have to see if there are more yogas in D1 or in D9 if more in D1 then the person will see more dreams of raajyoga and less will fructify and if more in D9 then the person will expect less and will get more. Also see in which houses the raajyogas are being made as there is no use of house lords so houses in which yogas are being made will play a very prominent role in deciding. See their position from ascendant, Arudh lagna, hora lagna, Ghatika lagna, shree lagna and so on.

Jaimini astrology is a vast ocean and so many gems are also to be culled up we till now are not able to understand Parashara astrology completely then what can we say about Jaimini. We know nothing about it. Only one thing that I can say is that 100% correct prediction can be given out by using parashara+Jaimini method.
