According to the Vedic astrology system, astrology closely linked with the past lives accumulated karmas which get manifested in the present life. The whole theory of the Vedic Astrology surrounds around the belief of karma’s, reincarnation and the concept of Moksha. Whereas karakas of the pending karmas are Saturn, Rahu/Ketu, and Ketu is mainly seen for moksha, detachment, and rejection in this life regarding material prosperity. Rahu is mainly seen for all sort of desires that are pending from the past life and Saturn is majorly seen for all sort of karmas, either it is ongoing, collected from past or it is form of new karmas whereas nodes are seen for the dispense of dynamic karmas when their transits and Dasha’s get active. According to Sideral system of Indian astrology, It is believed that a soul has to wait for the exact constellation of stars before it takes birth in this world from the mother womb. Karma theory states that type of life one person enjoy in this present life purely depends on the “Sanchit Karma” (accumulated deeds of past lives) that one soul has gathered from the many of the soul journies. Vedic astrology is only a unique science that considers the effects of accumulated deeds of the past life. It has been seen that various Dasha system’s those are devised in Vedic astrology used for “unfolding one’s karma in the past”. Any major change in the Dasha system can bring good or bad results depending on one’s karmic records or total baggage one carries from earlier lives.
For tracing past life pending karmas Vedic astrology gives much emphasis on the concept of “Rinanu- Bandhan” (past life debts) in relationships to see whom we have pending karmas attached with. This clearly indicates that the relationship we make in the form of friend’s or enemies or any sort of close relationship we keep purely depends on the upon past life debts. Which means no one comes in a person’s life without any reason. Every relationship is interlinked with each other by some means because of the past connections, some times we called them those relations as karmic relations or sometimes soul relations. If one keeps making relations and keep making contacts with people those he feels that he is so attached with somehow means that person karma is still pending and he has to finish it till it is not finished. It means, if someone keeps coming repeatedly in someone life or if one is not able to resolve some unfinished issues, then it means person or issues are linked with some karmic baggage of past lives. Even the fortune or downfall one shares in his married or career life or luck with someone, which clearly indicated that such a relationship is developing in this life because of past debts. It is also has been seen that at same times someone becomes good for the other.
Now the question arises why we human being has to face such type of situations in our life with each other ? what is the reason behind this? According to the Vedic astrology system, we have two reasons; either there is pending karma with the person which is native carried forwarded from the past or one is facing issues in this life due to the curses one get via his bad deeds. These “doshas” usually cause problems in having children, having trouble in making good relationship with either husband or wife, one may face severe career-related issues i.e no stability in the career, no financial security or stability even after having good married life or good job.
Our Scriptures has mentioned various such doshas that are mentioned in BPHS. Though in the current article we will not discuss reasons for curses or debts. our motive is to decode the reasons for pending karmas by various techniques via natal chart. some of those doshas or curses mentioned in BPHS are as mentioned below :
1) Curses of snakes: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Rahu in the natal chart. Effects of this curse give childlessness, fear from snakes and snake bites. This curse originates due to the killing of snakes in past lives. Root house for this curse is to been seen from the 5th house.
1) Curses of father: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Sun in the horoscope which gets triggered in the natal chart due to wrongs done to father or due to the suffering of souls of forefathers. It gives issues of childlessness, uneasy relationships with father in the current life, untimely death of father and lack of happiness from father. To understand this curse or debt one has to see 5th, 9th and 10th house.
3) Curses of mother: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Moon in the natal chart. This may happen due to ill-treatment with mother in past life. It gives issues of childlessness, problematic relationship with mother in the current life, unhappiness from mother, the untimely death of the mother. We have to see the Influences on the 4th, 5th house and moon with nodes to understand the curse.
4) Curses of brother: According to the Vedic astrology this curse has to be seen from the placement and strength or weakness of mars and Jupiter.whereas for younger brother planet Mars has to be seen and Jupiter for elder brother.Though in Nadi we see elder brother via Saturn. It gives problem in childlessness, difficult relationship with brothers, problems from brothers and lack of cordial relations with brother. To understand the curse we need to decode the placement of 3rd, 11th and 5th house along with affliction on Mars and Jupiter either via nodes or via Saturn.
5) Curses of maternal relations: For maternal relations, we need to check affliction on mercury and Saturn. It will give difficult relationship with maternal relations and we need to check affliction on 5th house and mercury, Saturn.
6) Curses of Spiritual Persons: To see curse of spiritual person we need to see affliction on Jupiter. It majorly gives problem in childlessness, problems from teachers, unhappiness, slow growth in life, stuck life, and general dissatisfaction in life, etc. We need to see the affliction on the 9th and 5th house along with Jupiter and their lordship condition.
7) Curses of the wife (or women): To see the curse or debt from females or wife one has to see the condition of the planet Venus. Any affliction on the planet venus via Nodes, Saturn or mars have majorly seen for the activation of the curse. The placement of Venus in the natal and divisional chart is important to understand the curse. It majorly gives effect problem in childlessness, difficulty in getting married, problems from wife or women, the possibility of divorce, defamation from women, etc. The most important house to be considered is the 7th house/lord.
8) Curses of Evil spirits: To see curse from the evil Spirits we need to see the planetary placement of the Rahu and Ketu in the natal chart. Generally, Role of the Nodes and Bhadhaka Graha, their lord and placement have key roles in identifying the curse from the evil spirits. It gives major problem in mental setup of the native, it gives fear from unknown and majorly fear of ghosts. we need to see the conditions of Moon, Saturn, the 5th house and the fifth lord in the natal chart along with Bhadhaka Graha and lord.
Techniques to Unlock the Pending Karma’s from the birth chart
” vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya navani grhnati naro ‘paranitatha sarirani vihaya jirnany anyani samyati navani dehi “”
Explanation Given By Yogananda on the above Verse :
” During our daily lives, we change our old and/or dirty clothes and put on new and/or clean clothes whenever the need arises. Similarly, the soul or atman casts off its worn-out physical body and takes residence in a newer physical body at regular intervals in time. Just like the clothes that we wear do not represent the real state of our physical body, the state of our physical body (which deteriorates over time and is hence impermanent) does not represent the truly unchangeable and permanent nature of the soul that resides within it.
The eternal does not move from place to place but the embodied soul moves from one abode to another. It takes birth each time and gathers to itself a mind, life and body formed out of the materials of nature according to its past evolution, karma, deed and its needs for the future. The psychic being is the vijnana which supports the triple manifestation of the body, life, and mind. When the gross physical body falls away, the vital and mental sheaths still remain as the vehicle of the soul. Rebirth is the law of nature. There is an objective connection between the various forms of life. “Like corn, a mortal ripens and like corn is he born again”.
This verse refers to the doctrine of reincarnation in Hinduism. Death is described here as the simple discarding of a worn-out garment for a new one. When the body becomes diseased and old, the ever-lasting soul forsakes it for a new disguise. Death is but a change of attire in an uninterrupted continuity of immortality.
few of the debts are easy to pay but some of the Rina’s are hard to clear during this lifetime.
- Debt to God for their blessings: paid by rituals and offerings.
- Debt to Ancestors and teachers: paid by supporting them, having children of one’s own and passing along knowledge.
- Debt to Guests: repaid by treating them as if they were gods visiting one’s home.
- Debt to Mankind: Mutual cooperation and serving others can help to repay this debt to mankind- such as giving money, clothes, shelter, and land, to poor people, giving food and water to hungry people and helping orphans-or any other help that is appropriate.
Repaying these five debts, called Pancha-maha-yajna, is compulsory in Hinduism. By this five yajna the worshipper places himself in correct relations with God, ancestors, spirits, men, the organic creation, nature and himself.

If BB is placed in the 10th house then one may have pending karma with the society or with the environment where he works or with the colleagues he works in society. whenever any major planet like Jupiter, Rahu/Ketu and Saturn transit on this point; BB, native experience major shift in his destiny in that particular year till that Transit is active with respect to that sign and house placement during particular years and same way vimshotri and Chara dasha of the BB lord point shows major shift one can experience in one’s destiny during their.

Technique 3 :
C) Check the house Placement and sign of the 3rd house and its lord ( Karyesha) in the natal and D3 chart ( Jaganath Drekkana) it shows your karma one is born with to fulfill in this birth by doing certain actions and karmas in the society. As 3rd house is the house of actions and initiatives done by the jeeva, and it is also directly opposite to the 9th house which shows your Past birth, father and the Bhagya, it shows your Free will (Force of karma that one perform against his destiny) and in broader sense it will show your must-have actions or karmas that you need to perform in this birth to unlock the future karma or actions one need require in this current birth.
Technique 4 :
D) Check the 6th house, Sign, planets placed in this house and its lord in the natal chart to decode the Shadripus one has to cross in this birth in order to achieve the purpose of this life. This house, planets placed in it and its lord shows what is the pending karma of this life that must be finish in order to finish or cross this life cycle barrier and reach to next life. For e.g if one has sign libra in the 6th house and there is no planet placed in the house then we have to see where 6th house lord is placed. that placement shows what sort of blockage one is experiencing in this birth with respect to that particular house placement. If we take current Example, venus is 6th lord and if it is placed in the 10th house in Aquarius sign then one may experience a problem in his career or profession because of his relationships with the female members in his office environment or one can face problem in his career via his wife or one face hurdle in his career life or performing certain karma in society due to the properties of the venus i.e problems via females, wife, wealth etc.
