Poets, Musicians and Venus


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

 By Dr. K. Guru Rajesh
Karaka for Art


The
sweetness of music is known immediately through hearing whereas that of literature
reveals itself slowly after progressive thinking. This is the opinion expressed
by our ancient Maharishis about the two branches of learning and culture.
Everyone has the right to enjoy the bliss of music and poetry. But only a few
are blessed with the interest and talent in either music or poetry while it is
rare to find one gifted in both. In
this article I endeavour to bring forth the important role played by Venus in
the horoscopes of poets and musicians in molding their personalities.

Music
is above all languages and beyond any recognizable words. Music forms such as alapana, instrumental music etc., are
devoid of words and are considered as pure music which can be enjoyed by
anybody including an infant, a snake or an animal-all who do not know any
language (शिशुर्वेत्ति
पशुर्वेत्ति वेत्ति गानरसं फणी). On the other hand, poetry
requires language and one who does not know the language may not be able to
enjoy it. But for those who know the
language it gives indescribable happiness as they can contemplate it over and
over again. Music when combined with lyrics of poetry becomes an irresistible
medium to convey feelings and sentiments and to motivate the people to a noble
cause. This is evident when one hears the patriotic songs brimming with sentiment,
folklore music overflowing with innocent feelings and the Kritis of
Vaggeyakaras filled with Bhakti Rasa.
According
to the classical rules of music, composers can be classified into three types.
A person who writes only lyrics (sahitya) for the songs is named as
‘Matu-kara’ while one who only sets to tune sahitya is named as ‘Dhatu-kara’.
A person who can both compose the lyric and set it to tune is called
Vaggeyakara. India is blessed with innumerable Vaggeyakaras besides many Dhatu
and Matu Karas. The trinity of Karnatic
music- Shyama Sastri, Tyagaraja and Muthuswamy Deekshitar, are typical
Vaggeyakaras besides many path setters like Purandaradasa, Annamayya and
Ramadasa.

A
person may follow established rules of Sastrakaras and develop a classical style
or one can discard these rules and follow altogether a different path both in
music and poetry. Also there are many shades between musicians and poets and
lyricists. A poet who has fluent language at his command may be gifted with a
melodious voice even though he has no training in music. By recognizing the
sound pictures of different ragas, he can effortlessly sing his lyrics.
Similarly, a bit of poetical rules will be known to the musicians also such as
Prasa,Yathi, Matra etc. The unifying features between music and poetry seem to
be the Laya or meter and the Bhava or Rasa. A comparative study of music and poetry
is beyond the scope of the present article. Readers are urged to keep in mind the
above points to appreciate the different proportions of music and poetry in both
musicians and poets.

Among
the planets, Venus is considered as the aesthetic planet ruling over sublime
feelings and cultured taste. He is called as ‘Kavi’ a celestial poet. It is
obvious to expect the powerful influence of Venus in the horoscopes of poets
and musicians. In the classical text Bhavartha Ratnakara, the following verses
can be noted regarding music and poetry.
शुक्रः चतुर्धगो यस्य गानविद्या विशारदः
द्वितीयगो यदि भृगुः काव्यालंकार शाश्त्रवान्
द्वितीयगो यदि भृगुः कविता धर्ममश्नुते
Venus
in the 4th house makes a person an
excellent singer. If he is in the 2nd house he will be a poet adept in kavyas and alankara.
These findings of our great sages hold good for most of the horoscopes in
my experience. Besides Venus, the secondary influence of other planets is
important in predicting the various sub-categories of art a person may follow.
Musicians may be classified into singers, string instrumentalists, wind
instrumentalists and percussionists. Similarly poets can be classical poets
writing according to the rules of Chandas, lyricists writing lyrics of the songs
following only broad principles of Laya and so-called modem poets without- any perceptible rules. Jupiter’s
influence is expected in vocalists while the influence of Mars and Mercury is
needed for instrumentalists. Prominence of Saturn and Mercury makes one a
percussionist. These influences will be
modified according to the nature of sign in which the Ascendant, 10th
house and Venus are posited. In the horoscopes of poets and lyricists an
inevitable influence of Mercury is expected, as he is the Karaka for writing and
publishing. The influence of the Moon cannot be ignored in both musicians and
poets as he is the Karaka for the mind, and a sensitive and responsive mind is needed for these fine
arts.
Unconventional Deviations

The
influence of Rahu and Ketu is necessary for an artiste to deviate from the
classical path and create a revolution. The combinations of Mars-Rahu,
Saturn-Rahu and Mars-Saturn are expected in such horoscopes, Venus, besides
ruling the positive aspect of sensitivity and culture, also rules over the
negative aspect of sensuality. If Venus is afflicted by in the above
combinations, it may result in moral degradation and abuse of artistic talents
manifesting in the form of addiction to alcohol, smoking and extra-marital and
immoral contacts. The association of these traits is a well-known fact among
many artistes. The influence of a powerful Jupiter coupled with unafflicted
Ascendant and 10th lords should negate these malefic influences.

Of
the twelve Rasis, Taurus and Libra ruled by Venus and Gemini and Virgo ruled by
Mercury are the important signs inclined towards music or poetry. Leo, the 5th house of the Zodiac, has a tendency to these fine arts.
Among the 12 houses, some houses have a greater say in these matters. The
Ascendant and 10th house are the deciding factors for the general life of the
native and his activity or Karma in this world. Further the Ascendant, Moon and
the Sun that form the tripod of a horoscope should be considered in all matters
of prognostication.
The 2nd house ruling speech and education is important in the
case of poetry and literature and also in vocal music. The 4th house indicating education and also being a Kendra directly
opposing the 10th house has a great influence in these matters,
especially for music. The fifth house ruling over the mind and creative urge of
the native is also important in these creative arts.

Talent
and professional success also span a wide range of spectrum depending on the
strength of Venus and the horoscope in general. If Venus is powerless, a mere interest
or elementary knowledge can be predicted while a powerful Venus makes the
native an expert in the art. Becoming an adept in the art is quite different from professional
success and recognition in society, which depend upon the Raja Yogas and the strength of the 10th
lord. A person may be an excellent musician or poet without much recognition and fame while another with average talent can be well known and
famous. One may take the art as profession or be an amateur. All these different possibilities should
be considered by studying the
horoscope as a whole while analysing the potential for music and poetry in a native.
The
following combinations are
observed in the horoscopes of poets and musicians in my
humble experience:

of Venus in bestowing artistic talents and success on these natives.

Poets

Chart 1:
Rabindranath Tagore: Born May 7, 1861 at 2h
. 51m (LMT) at
22 N
. 40, 88 E 30
The
striking feature in Chart 1 is the powerful exchange of houses between the 1st
and 5th lords Jupiter and Moon, Jupiter being exalted and Moon in a
friendly sign aspected by his sign-dispositor exalted Jupiter. Note the important combination of Venus,
Mercury and Sun in the 2nd house. No description is needed to explain the
literary genius of this great son of India which can be attributed to the above
two planetary associations. These
same combinations are also effective in the musical talents of the native
resulting in the creation of a separate branch of Indian music “Rabindra
Sangeet”. The predominance of Jupiter on the Ascendant and Moon made him
the ‘Gurudev’.
Chart 2:
Swami Vivekananda: Born January 12, 1863 at 6h. 33m (LMT) at 22 N 40, 88 E 30.
Swami
Vivekananda (Chart 2) the stormy monk of India, was also a poet with musical
talents. His poetry in Sanskrit, Bangla
and English are
of a high calibre. He had indeed undergone training in classical music in his
early youth. Note the presence of Venus, Sun and Mercury in the 2nd while
the 2nd lord is in the 10th with the Moon. There is an
exchange of houses between the 10th and 2nd lords. Also,
note the mutual aspect of the Ascendant lord Jupiter and the 5th lord
Mars. The 2nd house from the Moon is occupied by Jupiter while the 2nd
lord Venus is in the 5th house. Nothing more is required to explain
the musical, poetic and oratorical gifts the Swami enjoyed.
Chart 3: Sri
Aurobindo Ghose: Born August 15, 1872 at 5h. 17m (LMT) at 22 N 30, 88 E 20.
Leo, the 5th house of the natural Zodiac, rises in the 2nd with Venus, Mercury and the Sun in Chart 3. The Ascendant Cancer lodges exalted Jupiter and debilitated Mars, while the Ascendant lord Moon is in the 6th along with 7th and 8th lord Saturn. The association of Jupiter, Mars and Saturn with the Ascendant and the Moon explains the patriotism and spiritual achievements of the native. The combination which we are interested is the position of Venus, Mercury and Sun in the 2nd resulting in the poetic talents of the native which are coloured by Jupitarian and Saturnine influences.
Chart 4: Sri
Suddhananda Bharti: Born May 12, 1897 at 10h
. 19m (LMT) at
9 N 51, 78 E 37.

Sri
Suddhananda Bharati (Chart 4) was a patriotic poet composing soul stirring
songs in Tamil which invoked patriotic fervour in the Tamil people of those
days. Note the presence of Venus in the 10th aspected by the 9th
lord Jupiter from the 2nd. The Ascendant lord Moon is in the 2nd
house in Leo along with Jupiter aspected by Saturn from the 5th house
while the Ascendant itself is occupied by the 5th lord Mars with
Ketu. The 2nd lord Sun is in Taurus, a Venusian sign along with
Mercury aspected by Saturn. These planetary associations explain the life of
the great Kaviyogi.
Chart 5: A.B.Vajpayee: Born December 25, 1924 at 2h. 45m (1ST) at 24 N 54, 74 E 55.
Libra, a Venusian sign, rises in the Ascendant with 5th lord exalted Saturn aspected by the 2nd and 7th lord Mars in Chart 5. The Ascendant lord Venus is in the 2nd with the 10th lord debilitated Moon. The 2nd from the Moon is occupied by Jupiter, Sun and Mercury. The influence of Venus on the Ascendant as its lord and on the Moon bestowed a
sensitive and responsive mind on the
native while the presence of 5th
lord exalted Saturn in the Ascendant and Venus and Moon in the 2nd house resulted in poetic talents.
Chart 6: Male: Born February 8, 1959 at 7h.30m (1ST) at 14 N 42, 77 E 05.
The native of Chart 6 is a
famous ‘Sahasravadhani’ completing the Herculean task of “Maha Dvi-Sahasravadhanam” successfully. He is bestowed with a musical voice and has received many honours and felicitations
from the Government and different organizations. He is also an ‘Asthana Vidwan’ of a famous mutt. This highly celebrated poet has many Raja Yogas. The Ascendant is occupied by Yogakaraka Venus and Moon
(actually, the Moon is in 12th Bhava) and the Ascendant lord Saturn
is in the 11th aspecting the Ascendant and 5th houses. The 10th house is occupied by
2nd and 11th lord Jupiter aspected by the 10th
and 3rd lord Mars. Considering
the Bhava chart from the Moon, Venus
occupies the 2nd house while the Sun and Mercury are in the
Ascendant (with Moon). The powerful influence of Venus and Jupiter on the
Ascendant and 10th explains the poetic and literary gifts of the
native and his status.

Power of Transits in Vimsotri Dasha : How Transits Affect Dasa-Bhukti Lords


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

How Transits Affect Dasa-Bhukti Lords

Dr. K. Guru Rajesh



This was an article published in the JANUARY 2015 issue of the ‘Modern Astrology’. I thank Mrs. Gayatridevi Vasudev, the editor, for allowing me to share the article in social media. I hope you will enjoy reading this……..

Complete System of Prediction 

Vedic astrology is replete with many kinds of tools and techniques which aid in predicting events in the life of a native and pin-point the time of their fructification. Even a single Sloka or a small set of 3 or 4 Slokas may contain in them the germ of a complete system of prediction. While studying Phaladeepikacertain Slokas of Chapter 20 that deal with the transit effects of Vimshottari Dasa and Bhukti lords attracted my attention.

Phaladeepika Slokas, Chapter 20


Whichever Bhava from the natal Ascendant the Dasa lord moves through in his transit identical with his own, exaltation or friendly sign, the concerned Bhava will be strengthened, provided the Dasa lord is strong in the natal chart.


When the Dasa lord is weak in the natal chart and he transits a sign identical with his debilitation or inimical sign or when he gets eclipsed by the Sun, the effects of that house from the natal Ascendant will get spoiled.


When the Dasa lord during his transit moves in his debilitation or inimical sign or gets eclipsed by the Sun, the Dasa will yield unfavorable results. Contrary to this, if the Dasa lord moves in his exaltation, own or friendly signs or becomes retrograde during his transit the Dasa will produce benefic results.

During a particular Dasa, the results of the houses reckoned from the natal Moon-sign will come to pass whenever the Dasa lord transits through them.

These Slokas suggest that when a certain Vimshottari Dasa and Bhukti is running in the life of a native, then the transits of the Dasa and Bhukti lords can be utilized to confirm the event promised by them in the natal chart and also to zero-in on the time of fructification of the event. Similarly, the transits of planets on the natal positions of the Dasa and Bhukti lords also have say on the manifestation of results. As with all methods of Vedic astrology, the dicta laid down by the Rishis should be taken as a broad guideline and more precise rules with empirical analysis need to be identified. With these pointers I have analysed a number of horoscopes of people who have experienced a variety of events, both good and bad, and found that the method works amazingly.

First of all the events promised by the planets in the natal chart should be analysed minutely in order to successfully apply this method. The good or bad results which the Dasa and Bhukti lords portend from their natal positions, lordships and association should be judged properly. While doing this, both the Ascendant and the natal Moon-sign should be considered. Similarly, the lord of the Nakshatra in which a planet is placed as per Vimshottari Dasa system should also be studied as it plays a prominent role in shaping the results. Various benefic and malefic combinations enumerated in the classical texts should be applied carefully before drawing a conclusion regarding the potential events that can manifest in the life of the native during a given Dasa and Bhukti period. After that, the following rules regarding the transit of Dasa and Bhukti lords and also other planets should be applied to pin-point the event. This method is particularly helpful when at least one among the Dasa or Bhukti lords is a slow moving planet. Nevertheless, it works well for fast moving planets also.

General Principles


(a) Observe the houses transited and aspected by the Dasa and Bhukti lords both from the natal Ascendant and the natal Moon-sign. The events connected with these houses will manifest during the Dasa-Bhukti period.

(b) Observe the natal planets on whom the Dasa and Bhukti lords move or cast their aspect in transit vis-a-vis their lordships and natural Karakattwas. The events connected with these planets will manifest during the Dasa-Bhukti period.

(c) Transit Dasa or Bhukti lord moving over or aspecting a particular combination in the natal chart may manifest the results of that combination.

(d) When the Dasa or Bhukti lord moves on or aspects a house of which it has natural Karakattwa the results of that house will manifest significantly.

(e) When the Dasa and Bhukti lords move over or aspect their natal positions then the period will give the results promised by them in the natal chart.

(f) When either the Dasa or Bhukti lord is a natural benefic and indicates a happy event in transit while at the same time the other lord is a natural malefic and indicates unfavourable result in transit, then the native will experience both results during that period. For example, events like marriage followed by immediate separation, or birth and death of a child etc.

Favourable Results


Opposition and Conjunction

1) Dasa or Bhukti lord transiting the 9th house from the natal Ascendant or the Moon-sign may give happy occasions like marriage, child birth etc.

2) The Dasa and Bhukti lords coming into opposition in transit will give benefic results promised by their position in the natal chart.

3) When Dasa and Bhukti lords come together in transit in a beneficial house either from the natal Ascendant or from the natal Moon, then the native will experience the favorable results of these houses.

Transit Jupiter



4) When transit Jupiter moves on natal Dasa or Bhukti lord, the native may experience happy events. Also, Dasa or Bhukti lord transiting on natal Jupiter may indicate happy events.

5) Transit Jupiter on or aspecting both Dasa or Bhukti lords will give happy events. 6) When Jupiter is either the Dasa or Bhukti lord and transits over the other planet while the said planet aspects or moves over natal Jupiter, the native will experience happy events.

7) The Dasa or Bhukti lord in transit moving over or receiving the aspect of natal Jupiter and Venus will give benefic results pertaining to the houses owned by him in the natal chart and also the houses influenced by him in transit.

8) When the Dasa or Bhukti lord transits natal Jupiter while transit Jupiter moves over the natal position of the Dasa or Bhukti lord, the native will experience benefic results.

9) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord is a natural malefic and transits over a beneficial house from the natal Ascendant or natal Moon while simultaneously either Jupiter or Venus is transiting over the natal position of the said planet, then the native will experience happy events.

10) When both Dasa and Bhukti lords join together in transit in the natal Ascendant or natal Moon-sign while transit Jupiter aspects their natal positions, then the native will experience happy events.
11) Transit Jupiter moving over the natal position of the Dasa or Bhukti lord or aspecting them in transit bestows favourable results on the native.

I have tested these rules successfully on more than 60 horoscopes and would like to demonstrate its applicability through an example horoscope.

Unfavourable Results


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

The first part of this paper has dealt with the connection between the Dasa-Bhukti lords and transiting planets covering favourable results. There are other principles which can also be applied in deciphering unfavourable results to the Dasa-Bhukti lords against the transits of planets.

Mutual Relationships


1) The Dasa and Bhukti lords portending evil results in the natal chart and joining together or coming in mutual opposition in transit in malefic houses from the natal Moon or the natal Ascendant will bring about evil results.

2) When the Dasa and Bhukti of malefic planets are running and one of them transits over the other, then the bad effect suggested in the natal chart will manifest itself.

3) When both the Dasa and Bhukti lords are natural malefics and form a formidable combination in the natal chart and one of them moves on or aspects that natal combination in transit while the other moves on or aspects the natal Ascendant, Moon-sign or the 10th house from them, the native will experience very bad results and commit grave mistakes due to poor judgment.
Debilitation

4) The Dasa or Bhukti lord transiting his debilitation sign and suffering combustion at the same time will give very bad results.

5) If the Dasa or Bhukti lord occupies his debilitation sign in a bad house in the natal chart and transits the same sign then that period will be unfavourable.

6) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord moves over a planet debilitated in the natal chart and also joins the same planet in transit, then the period will give bad results.

7) When either the Dasa or Bhukti lords is debilitated and posited in a bad house in the natal chart and the Dasa and Bhukti lords in transit move through or aspect that house, then the native will experience bad results as indicated by that house.

8) The Dasa and Bhukti lords both moving over or aspecting natal debilitated planets will bring bad results like loss of position etc.

Inimical Signs and Planets

9) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord in transit moves in an inimical sign joined by planets inimical to him, then that period will give bad results.

10) When Jupiter is either the Dasa and Bhukti lord and joins his enemies Venus or Mercury or both in transit in an inimical or debilitation sign, then the native will experience bad results.
Combustion

11) The Dasa or Bhukti lord though moving in exaltation, friendly or own sign will give unfavourable results when combust at the same time.

Malefic Planets and Positions

12) Transit of malefic planets over Dasa or Bhukti lord who is disposed badly in the natal chart will give bad results.

13) Though a planet transits his exaltation, own or friendly sign that will not preclude him from giving unfavourable results if that sign happens to be the 6th, 8th or 12th house from the natal Ascendant or natal Moon.

14) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord transits his natal position joined by transiting malefic planets, the native will experience bad results.

15) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord moves in his debilitation sign or a malefic house from the natal Ascendant or natal Moon and is simultaneously influenced by transit Saturn and Mars either by conjunction or aspect then the period indicates unfortunate events.

16) When the Dasa or Bhukti lord moves over a natal planet that owns bad houses and joins the same planet in transit also, then the native will experience bad results of the house pertaining to that natal planet.

17) When the Dasa or Bhukti lord activates a formidable natal combination in transit and simultaneously suffers combustion or affliction by transiting malefic planets, the native experiences very bad results indicated by the natal combination.
18) When Saturn is one among the Dasa and Bhukti lords and generates sadesathein
transit (moves in the 12th, 1st or 2nd from natal Moon) while the other lord simultaneously indicates bad results in transit, the native will face difficult circumstances.

Rahu-Ketu

19) The Dasa or Bhukti lord joining transit Rahu or Ketu will be bad. This will be more pronounced when the planet moves through his inimical or debilitation sign.

20) Rahu transiting on natal position of Dasa or Bhukti lord will be bad.

21) When transit Rahu moves over a planet whose Dasa or Bhukti is current and that planet simultaneously transits his debilitation or inimical sign or suffers combustion, bad results follow.
22) When both the Dasa and Bhukti lords move over a bad natal combination joined with transit Rahu then that period will prove to be unfavourable.

23) When Rahu or Ketu is the Dasa or Bhukti lord, the transit or aspect of the Node over natal Ascendant or natal Moon may give bad results.

24) If the Dasa or Bhukti lord transits natal Rahu while transit Rahu simultaneously transits over the natal position of the said planet, then the native will experience bad results.

The same case discussed in Part I of this paper is examined in the light of these principles for unfavourable results.

Event XIV:  Father’s Heart Attack and Bypass Surgery: 

Rahu Dasa-Mars Bhukti >>  The native’s father suffered a heart attack on October 2nd 2002 and had to undergo bypass surgery on November 11th 2002. The 9th house lodges Saturn in an inimical sign with Rahu while the 9th lord and Karaka Sun is exalted in the 5th with Mars and Mercury. The 9th is hemmed between benefics exalted Jupiter and Full Moon. Thus, though the 9th house is considerably afflicted, the 9th lord and Karaka Sun is fortified and the 9th house is protected by the benefic Argala.

Vimshottari: Both the Dasa and Bhukti lords are natural malefics. The Dasa lord Rahu is in the 9th with Saturn. Rahu occupies the Nakshatra of Venus who is in the 4th (8th from the 9th). The Bhukti lord Mars joins the 9th lord Sun in the 5th house along with Mercury. Mercury is a Maraka from the 9th house. Mars occupies the Nakshatra of Ketu who is in the 3rd house, the 7th from the 9th. Mars Bhukti is the last in Rahu Dasa coming under Dasa-chidram which usually gives bad results.
Transits: Dasa lord Rahu was transiting Taurus, the 9th house from the natal Moon. Bhukti lord Mars was transiting natal Saturn and Rahu in Leo, the 9th house from the natal Ascendant.

Event XV:

Vimshottari: Dasa lord Jupiter is in the 8th house, the 12th from the 9th and happens to be the 8th lord from the 9th house. Jupiter occupies the Nakshatra of Saturn who is in the 9th along with Rahu. The Bhukti lord Ketu is in the 3rd and should give the results of Saturn who occupies the 9th house with Rahu. Both Dasa and Bhukti lords are in Shastashtaka or mutually unfavorable positions.
Transits: The Dasa lord Jupiter was transiting Pisces, the 8th house from the natal 9th house. The Bhukti lord Ketu was transiting Gemini, his debilitation sign, aspecting the natal Ascendant.


Event XVI:  Heart Problem to Mother: Jupiter Dasa-Venus Bhukti >> The native’s mother had to be hospitalized on September 28th 2011 as she was complaining of shortness of breath. It was diagnosed as heart failure because of reduced EF%.


Vimshottari:
The Dasa lord Jupiter is the 4th lord from both the Ascendant and the Moon-sign. Though in his exaltation sign, Jupiter is in the 8th house from the Ascendant in the Nakshatra of Saturn who is placed in the 6th from the 4th in Leo which rules the heart. The Bhukti lord Venus is the 6th and 11th lord from Ascendant and occupies the 4th house aspected by 8th lord and Karaka Moon. From the 4th house Venus is the 3rd and 8th lord.

Transits: The Dasa lord Jupiter was in Aries, the 8th house from the natal Moon-sign aspecting Libra, the 8th from the 4th house from the natal Ascendant. The Bhukti lord Venus was transiting his debilitation sign Virgo where the natal Moon, the Karaka, is placed. Transit Venus was with transit Saturn, the Sun, Moon and Mercury aspecting Pisces, the 4th house from the natal Ascendant.

Event XVII: Father’s Death: Jupiter Dasa-Moon Bhukti >> The native’s father died on August 24th 2015.


Vimshottari:  As explained earlier Jupiter is capable of causing harm to the native’s father. The Bhukti lord Moon is the 8th lord, 12th lord from the 9th house, and placed in the 2nd to 9th house, a Marakasthana. Further, the Moon occupies the Nakshatra of Mars who joins Pitrukaraka and 9th lord Sun and 10th lord Mercury, a Marakasthana lord from the 9th house.

Dasa lord Jupiter was transiting Leo, the 9th house from the ascendant where Saturn and Rahu are placed in the natal chart. Further, Jupiter was combust by his close proximity to transit Sun, the 9th lord and natural Karaka for father. Bhukti lord Moon was debilitated in Scorpio aspecting Taurus, the 9th house from the natal Moon-sign.

This case illustrates the principles given in Phaladeepika very well.
