Determining USA Recession Cycles Using Annual Lunar Calendar Chart Method

 

As per the USA National Bureau of Economic Research a recession is defined as “A significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales”. Americans have experienced these recession cycles in the past many years in USA, but most importantly, the business and working class people are effected by the Corporations spend  and downsizing of workforce / resources during the recession time. So, in this paper, I would like to share a method to determine USA Recession Cycles using Annual Lunar Calendar Chart casted by taking the Capital city of the USA, Washington, DC.

I have used the following pointers and illustrated the principles with USA Recession Cycles Since 1960 Charts to demonstrate its application.

Principles:

1) Rasi (D-1) Lagna Lord, 2nd Lord and their placement in Dushtana (6th, 8th or 12th) houses.

2) Hora (D-2) Lagna Lord, 2nd Lord and their placement in Dushtana (6th, 8th or 12th) houses.

3) Rahu and Ketu’s involvement and influence with the above 2 principles.

 

Note: I have used Pushya-Paksha Ayanamsa with Bhava/Chalit Charts in this analysis.

Vivah Prashna to know nature, timing of marriage and widowhood.

UDAY and ARUDA For Vivah Prashna

aruda-and-Uday

19th March 2017

12:14:53, JAIPUR. 26.55 LAT, 75.49 LONG

Uday lord is debilitated in tenth house with Venus. The lord of seventh house of marriage aspects the naisargik karka of Marriage “Venus”. Though Far way the lord of the Uday is Astangata or combust in Prasna.

It is uttarbhadra nakshatra in Vrishchika Navmansha. Shani is placed in seventh house and shani is malefic. Lord of the seventh house is placed in fourth in retrogression. Both Saturn and Jupiter are slow moving planets.

Jupiter is Badhakesh over here.

RULES FOR VIVAH PRASHNA
  • Lord of Aruda Joined to Venus is indication of success in marriage.
  • There is no malefic in the eighth house.
  • Moon and Mars are away from seventh house, which is good.
  • Mars is in sixth house from Moon. Husband quits the world in 9th year without any issue.
  • Moon and Mars are in Even and Odd signs. Therefore, the timing of marriage indicates delay.
  • The ascendant or Aruda is Odd sign but Neither Mars nor Moon aspect the ascendant, so marriage will be delayed.
  • 1,5,7,8,9 are mostly empty except seventh which has Saturn and Ketu in ninth. Both indicate minor troubles after marriage.
  • Mars is placed in Neech Navmansha, even Moon is debilitated in D-1 chart. This is not good sign for marital life.
  • Moon is debilitated in sixth and there is a malefic in seventh house from ascendant indicating widowhood of woman in 8th year of marriage
TYPE OF SPOUSE. NATURE, CHARACTER, PHYSiCAL CHARACTERISTICS

Seventh house lord and seventh house has dual signs. Dual signs rule the world of intelligence and wisdom. Saturn is placed in seventh house indicating that the person will be mature and tall in appearance. He will be qualified for finances or accounts related work. He might have whitish complexion.

He may also deal as consultant or trader.

As Venus is exalted in tenth house in dual sign and moon and Mars are in Movable and stable signs, the character of the to be spouse will not be very chaste. He might have indulged in inappropriate behaviors before marriage.

TIMING OF MARRIAGE.

Since Moon is placed in Gemini in Dwadashansha (D-12) and seventh house lord is placed in Leo in D-9, Marriage will not take place till Jupiter enters Sagittarius.

WILL REMEDIES WORK?

Ketu is placed in ninth house, Navmansha lagna is weak and Aruda lord is debilitated with Moon in main chart, Which is not good for remedies. Though Aruda lord is aspected by Jupiter, Jupiter is Badhakesh over here.

Jupiter’s placement in fourth house also indicates that the native will suffer because of dosha from Kula devta. Jupiter indicates Peetambar deities Like Sri Krishna or Vishnu Avatars. It also indicates Guru. A reptile has created Ashudhi of image and the deity needs a cleaning Pooja.

ORIGINAL CHART

Vedic Jyotish chart

The ascendant chart is having dual sign. The same is the case in Prashna chart. The lord of the seventh house is exalted with Moon but is aspected by the sixth house lord.

It is placed in 4th Pushyami in 4th Navmansha, which is enemy sign. It is having a direct aspect from debilitated sixth house lord (D-1) in D-9 chart.

Mars is placed in dual sign with Ketu having Venus in rear. Mars is placed in dual sign in D-9. A sure sign of two marriages.

The Prashna chart has similar configurations where Saturn and Jupiter are involved with seventh house. Marriage might get delayed as such.

Mars is placed in Pisces in D-9 and Saturn is placed in debilitation in next sign. Hence, the longevity of to be spouse is question in main chart as well.

REMEDIES

For remedies to work the native needs to perform Saptashuddhi poojas for Kula devta. On further enquiry the native told me that her Kuladevta is Sri Krishna only and there is an image of the deity in her paternal village.

She was told to perform Saptashuddhi of the idol in her village.

Thereafter a “Ghat Vivah” needs to be performed by the native.

For longevity of the spouse a “Mahamrityoonjay Homam” should be performed for the spouse after marriage.

Unfolding the lives by art of Prashna

Unfolding lives,The art of Prashna
 Badhakesh: Guru, Hora Lord: Buddha, uday: Karkat, Arootha: Gemini
The art of prashna is based on twin fold path of mathematical ability and a quick and subtle decipher of the situation in hand. The better we are in this art, the better is our analysis.
It off course requires a lot of experience and learning as well without which it does not work well.
The ancient chakra over here, carries rashi in innermost circle, the next carries nakshtras and padas and the final chakra is navmansha chakra. The small ganesha idol in Karkat rashi represents Uday, the brown kowri  represents the arootha sign. The planets are represented by gemstones. (The dark reddish one in karkat is Rahu and the next which is in duo tones is Gulikan). This ancient chakra is very useful as it gives a full picture in single glance.
In this case arootha and uday are 2/12 in position which indicates deva kopa. Remedies in this matter requires regular medicine. It is like chronical disease which requires a treatment like chemotherapy. A disprin will not bring any relief to the native in question. The prashna lord is in eleventh house. This indicates that the question is related to gains, property etc. The lord of badha aspects Buddha so there is a badha. Guru indicates divine curse, agyana (dosha of fifth house), curse of brahmins etc. So Jupiter is the badha. Mars the lord of the sixth house aspects Mercury in eleventh indicating that the person also suffers from debts and court cases.
There is Venus in the lagna, which is the depositor of badha lord. This carries an aspect from eighth house lord. Relationship with wife will be strained because of her nature and impassive approach to conjugal happiness (because of Saturn).
The story;
The man in question was a contractor for digging and blasting. He was suffering from debts and court cases. When I enquired about Guru (Jupiter), there were two incidents that indicated troubles. Guru the elder brother died in an accident. (He was fit and fine).
A person who was his partner has one of his relative working as Godman. The same person was cheating and did many wrong things to this native. The godmen was like a Guru to the person in question. When he informed his so called Guru about the modus operandi of his relative, the Guru got angry. Though he did not showed his anger, but he must have known about the cheating been done by his own relative.
This Godman is a tantric (Mars+ Ketu) and according to the questioner he must have done something against him.
He did not have any cordial relations with his wife as well.
He was worried about money and problems.
All these things were already present in prashna and can be seen.
Remedies:
He was told to visit Guru- Dwara or places where Guru resides.
He was also told to take his wife to a certain temple because she was suffering from some negative influence.
A donation of food to poor people on every Amavasya was also required.
These remedies have to be done regularly. An advice to keep his thinking straight was also shared.

Prashna of Sexual orientation,Distressed parents and Stree Shrapa

TECHNICAL NOTES
Aruddha: Aquarius
HL: Buddha
BL: Venus
Navmansha Uday is chandra rashi of native, so Prashna is correct.
Arudha is Chatra, Nothing is hidden. The questioner is going to reveal everything.
Prashna : The question was asked for a young female and question was asked by Parents.
A sheershodayi rashi is rising in Arudha and its lord is placed in upchaya. Saturn is placed in Dhanu so question concerns a jeeva and we are already aware of that. As Saturn is lord so there is a question related to career.
HL lord is Mercury in retrograde position just four degrees away from Venus. The sign is Scorpio. It is a hidden sign in a drishya Bhaga. Therefore, something hidden from others is visible to others. So what is it? I was wondering when I saw the Prashna.
Mercury the mind is perturbed because of a female or in short, the female in question has a problem with her sexual orientation. Venus is afflicted with Gulikan indicating that the female (the other one) is afflicted by some invisible power and she had a considerable influence on the female in question.
Therefore, the parents of this questioner were troubled by the sexual orientation of their daughter. This was confirmed as I asked them these questions. Please note that it is more on a mental level and causing troubles to everyone in family.
This is confirmed as Venus the trouble giver is sitting in rear position to Mercury.
Mercury also indicates that the question is also related to education.
Moon is placed in Tula with Mars in rear. This indicates mother asking the question troubled by hard headed (Mars) behavior of daughter who has committed some sin in past (Rahu). This atleast was a sin in her mother’s eyes.
I checked original horoscope but I cannot find any yogas related to this kind of behavior. Specially like Saturn Venus positions and Mars Venus positions in d-9 and D-3 chart. Still I was sure about my deductions.
So I started the conversation with the parents by telling them that you are here for three questions that concern your daughter.
  1. Career.
  2. Her sexual orientation and relations with other female.
  3. Education or higher education.
All three questions were 100% correct and I was stunned by accuracy of Jyotisa Vidhya.
This Prashna indicates that there is a Stree Shrapa or curse to the family causing all these troubles to this native. The ninth house is afflicted in her natal chart indicating that the curse has originated from father’s side or ancestors giving rise to such thinking pattern.
Her original chart confirmed that she is hot headed and does not listen easily. She has a Mars Venus aspect her Navmansha chart (natal) where Mars (The male quality) is predominant over female quality. Venus is debilitated in her natal chart. Unfortunately, I cannot share her birth details or natal chart.
Venus in natal chart is afflicted by Mandi as in Prashna chart. Remedies were suggested for removing the stree Shrapa.

How to Unlock your Pending karma’s of past life from the natal chart- Part 1

According to the Vedic astrology system, astrology closely linked with the past lives accumulated karmas which get manifested in the present life 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.

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

In the next section, we will discuss the major techniques used to identify the pending karma from the natal chart.so lets decoding the secrets of past life but first, we need to understand the concept of karma, reincarnation and the cycle of karma.

Lord Sri Krishna said in ‘The Bhagawad Gita’,
” vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya navani grhnati naro ‘paranitatha sarirani vihaya jirnany anyani samyati navani dehi “
As a man, casting off worn-out garments takes new ones, so the dweller in the body, casting off worn-out bodies, enters into others that are new”. He has also said, “The misdeeds of our past lives torment us in the form of illnesses or ailments”

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”.

(Katha Upanisad, Ch 1, verse 6)
(The Bhagvad Geeta by Swami Yogananda)

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.

How to Clear Debts

 

 

Although there is none another such way to understand the past birth Debts or underlying karma process and what soul has gone through in last birth and what it will bring to the new birth. God way and process of management and operations are way beyond our imagination to understand how life and souls cycle is moving around Birth and death cycle.

We are biologically a very small electrically charged energies residing in a physical bodies having limitation to the material world, our reach and understanding life cycle in a simple plain language is not an easy task. Unless and until we are able to develop our Kundalini Shakti via deep Spiritual penance unless we can’t understand how the soul’s deeper roots karmic accounts are connected with life and death cycle.

Neither we are Yogic Person nor we are born as a Godly soul having extraordinary sensory abilities to experience futuristic visions or dream and able to understand for what purpose we took birth but yes there are certain methods via we can understand how our this life is connected with the past birth Karma’s, Rinas, and curses ( Unfinished Karmas).

One of the common methods is Understanding past life impressions via Regression therapy and other is having Extraordinary astrological knowledge on studying Past Birth Astrological cases via various Astrological charts and tools by a different branch of jyotish but astrologer must be well experienced in collecting and analyzing different life experiences with natal charts.

If you are seeking a detailed guidance regarding deep understanding on Life Purpose, Spiritual awakening, Spiritual Learning, Understanding past lives curses, debts and past birth karmic sufferings, then you need to understand the deeper karmic connections which are linked with debts and pending and decode it we need to understand methodologies used for decoding Past birth rina and curses for better understanding on karma and moving toward right Spiritual.

Although, Tracing Pending karma from a natal chart is always a tough job, as many people carry those karmas from immediate last birth or some of them carrying from many of past journeys. These are hard to trace combinations. Below are few observations which I have studied from many of the charts for Pending karmas and found true and working in many of the cases.

Technique 1 :

A) Check the number of Retrograde planets in the Natal chart:  Look for the presence of a number of retrograde planets in the chart. Total number of Presence of Retrograde planets in the Natal chart shows how many pending karmas one has to exhaust in this birth. More the Retrograde planets more the total pending karmas one has to finish in this life i.e if one has a presence of 3 retrograde planets, then it means one has accumulated 3 pending karmas from many of the past journies. Each of the Retrograde planet shows, karma connected with the karakas of the planets. To see what exactly the karma is pending with the native, check the placement of the Retrograde planets in the natal chart, check, in which sign planet is placed and how many planets are aspecting it. Sign shows sufferings or delays may face in this birth and aspects show via whom you may face such hurdles, difficulties, and hurdles in this life. Dispositer lord placement of the Retrograde planet in the natal chart shows what you need to do in this life in order to fix the pending karma. To see what exactly is the pending karma retrograde planet is indicating that one has to finish in this birth or giving a clue for certain area of life, check its 12th house placement from the retrograde planet, that house placement will show the area where one has to experience the pending karma that one has to finish. for e.g if one has retrograde planet placed in the 9th house then it means pending karma is either with the guru, teacher or father and one has to experience it in this life via 8th house matter which is the 12th house placement from the 9th. 8th shows sufferings, health issues, hurdles and unknown troubles in life. now let us understand more by different planetary examples how we can judge it :
1) If Mars is retrograde, and if it is connected with the Lagna or trik Bhavas ( i.e 6th, 8th or 12th house/lord) – There will be intense Pending karmas connected with Brothers, enemies, Husband ( In Nadi), fights, Legal battles, Land, Houses, War, bravery, Kings, and Kshatriya etc. To see what exactly the karma is pending with, check the placement of the Retrograde mars in which sign and how many planets are aspecting it.
2) If Saturn is Retrograde – and if it is connected with the Lagna and trik bhavas – Then there will be deep Pending Karmas connected one’s own action in the society i,e with Karam, Actions, work, Career, debts, sins, deeds, workers, social circle, Society, Land, agriculture, and Mass, etc.
3) If Jupiter is Retrograde – then one has Pending Karmas connected with the Spiritual Guru, teacher or father he has met in the past life, or it is with the Teacher, Knowledge he has learned in past, or it is connected with one’s Learning, or there might be a karma connected with the Brahmin, Gurukul and it is the karma given by the god to finish it in this life etc. if it is connected to the trik bhavas then one has to Experience it in any case via serving people. If it is connected with the Upachaya and Dharma Bhavas then one may get success via it and one will do service to the people in the right manner for uplifting own self and other also.
4) If it is Venus – then one has pending karma connected with his wife, sister, relationships and one has to give to his Wife, Spouse, Girlfriend, elder sister and one may face hardships or some karmic debt or pending karma with respect to Relationships, wealth, luxury and majorly with the wife or lover he or she may face or experience. If the conjunction is with Sun, Nodes, Mars and Saturn, AK then the Severity would be intense and it can give hard lessons in relationships or marriage. Many a case it gives hardships, struggles in Wealth, Luxury and comfort matters. Even it gives an indication with the concerned people those are connected with the karka of Venus i.e sister in law etc. Start of pending karma depends on the Lordship of the venus in Natal chart Mool trikona rashi, that house shows the event that can trigger the past karma i,e if Venus is lord of 9th house ( then event trigger after when one starts its higher learning or enter in any institution or society).The same way you can check for other planets as well

Technique 2 : 

B)  Check where the Bhrigu Bindu is placed in the natal chart, the sign, planet placed in it and its lord shows what sort of karma is pending in this birth and whom it is pending and how one can finish it. 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. We will explain the concept of Bhrigu Bindu in detail in the next part with an example chart.

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.

Technique 5 : 

E) Check Placement and Sign aspect of Saturn and Rahu in the natal chart, shows what is the Major karma that needs to work on it in current life and if both the planets make a relation to each other or some Sambandha in a way by Mutual Aspects, conjunctions then one need to first finish this house karma in order to grow or progress in this life. for e.g Saturn is placed in 8th house and Rahu is placed in the 5th house , As Saturn is aspecting 5th house by 10th aspect then one needs to finish the pending karma wrt to 5th house matters i.e Bhakti, Stability of the chitta ( Mind) affairs, romance, children’s and basic education etc.

Note : These Pending karmas one has to exhaust in any case without any delay or without escaping point from it, Dashas, Ad, and Pd of all these retrograde planets play the main role in turning life into a major transformative events and one has to finish it in any case by experiencing it and all these planets play a major role in transforming inner conscious (Spiritual instinct) of the native. Either they teach a hard lesson or one totally get spiritual in these dasha periods.

Technique 6 :

Karma from D9 and Divisional charts :
There are also few other pending Karmas which are very intense and one cannot avoid it and those are presence in the form of curses and Karmic point. All these intense karmas one has to seen from the D9, D3, D30 and D60 chart. Whereas Planetry conjunction with either North node or south nodes in D9 shows the Deep and very intense karmas which were long pending from many of the birth and native is trying to avoid it or carry forwarding to many of birth from long via some divine help, guru blessings or Good Deeds.
As, Rahu-Ketu shows Sudden karmic point whereas Saturn shows karma that one has to improve it in this birth with own efforts and actions. Rahu-Ketu karmas have come in the form of mundane and physical sufferings and karma of Saturn comes in the form of Learning and lessons.
i.e If Rahu is placed with Venus in d9 chart – One had deep, Sudden and intense karma connected with either wife or girlfriend, Relationships (Extra or pre-marital physical relations) , some karma connected with lady love or with women whom he loves in past birth that can give either intense suffering or one may learn a hard lessons after marriage or it can starts when one person get involved in any relationship.
If Sun is with Rahu, then one may play a deep and intense relationship with Father or fatherly figure people, this conjunction can activate a Pitru curse in chart when Sun is involved with either 5th or 9th lord in D1 chart and it is in conjunction in d9 chart. this can activate it either after marriage or when some joins Job or he or she do bad deeds to any of fatherly figure native.
If Moon is with Rahu – then it gives deep and intense emotional sufferings via Mother, mother in law or eldest sister or via suffering intensely in an emotional bond. this could be very intense when the moon is lord of 4th house in d1 and same time if it is lord of 7th lord in d9. then it can get activate after marriage.
same we can check for Planetary conjunction with Ketu that shows Long pending karma connected with the past birth that one is avoiding from many of the birth. Ketu shows what is left behind, one’s rejections that have to experience and what is you have to finish in this birth to grow yourself spiritually. Ketu is a planet of detachment so here suffering and the lesson is connected in the form of detachment and one may face lots of detachment via karaka of the planet as native may have given sufferings or detachment to someone in that past birth in any of the form

Other Pending karmas are seen from the D3, D30 and  D60 chart that shows the karma of immediate last birth, that one has to face or experience in this birth that we will cover in the 2nd part of this article with example charts. It could be seen in these above mentioned divisional charts when karka of any of planet is connected with Mars, Saturn and nodes in D3, D30 and D60 chart, those having lordship with the 6th, 8th, 12th or Lagna in the D1 chart.D3 chart majorly shows about the Bott past and future karma native has to experience i.e what is the soul goal of the native or what one has to experience in this birth due to the good and Bad deeds done via the native. whereas D30 chart shows about the Suffering one has to experience in this birth because of his weaknesses, shadripus, sins and past debts.

I hope people would have enjoyed this article reading it and people will try to apply in their chart to understand it more deeply with the example charts. In the 2nd part, we will try to explain each and every technique with example charts of people those have experienced their destiny and past karmas astrologically.

Reincarnation and Astrology : Decoding Past Life of Shanti Devi

 

Article Written and Researched By

Sumanta Ghosal

Life Reincarnation is mainly a vedic philosophical concept that an aspect of living being starts a new life in a different physical body after each bio-logical death. It is a central point of vedic literature. Then other Indian religions such as Buddhism, Jainism and Shikh follows this concept.

But today I am going tfo discuss regarding Reincarnation and Astrology. We all know the twin beliefs of Karma and Reincarnation are among Hinduism many jewels of knowledge. Karma literally means “deed or act”, but more broadly it describes the pinciple of cause and effect. Simply stated Karma is a law of action and reaction which governs conscioussness. In metaphysics, Karma is the law that states that every mental, emotional and physical act, no matter how insignificant, is projected out into yhe physic mind substance and eventually returns to the individual with equal impact.

In ‘Bhagvad Gita’ Lord Shree Krishna says to Arjuna –

“वासाांसस जीर्ाासि यथा सवहाय
िवासि गह्णृ ासि िरोऽपरासर् ।
िथा शरीरासर् सवहाय जीर्ाा
न्यन्यासि सांयासि िवासि देही ॥” – Chapter 2, verse 22

It means during our day to day liles we change our old and dirty cloths and take a new/clean cloths whenever we need. Similarly, the Souls or Aatman costs off its worn out physical body at regular intervals of time. Soul is immortal but the physical body is mortal.

This sloka or verse refers to the doctrine of Reincarnation in Vedic philosophy. Death is described here as the simple process of a worn out garmentsfor a new one. Death is nothing but a chage attire in an uninterrupted continuity of immortality. In ‘Bhagvad Gita’, chapter number 2, verse number 23 Lord Krishna states to Arjuna-

“ििै ां सिन्दसन्ि शस्त्रासर् ििै ां दहसि पावकः ।
ि चिै ां क्लेदयन््यापो ि शोषयसि मारुिः ॥”

Lord Krishna states Aatman can not be harmed by weapons- and since it is formless and shapeless – it can not be cut into pieces by any instruments. In the same way, fire can not burn it or destroy it. Water can not wet it because water can act only elements which have physical description or dimensions. For the same reason, wind can not dry it or exert any force on it. Thus the Aatman is beyond the influence of all three primary forces which can affect entities having physical form and description.

REINCARNATION AND ASTROLOGY

But today I am going to discuss regarding the relation between Astrology and Reincarnation. We all know Astrology is nothing but a celestial map of our previous births deeds. Our previous deeds or Karma decides our fate in this existance. By grace and blessings of my Ishtadev Lord Shiva, I am able to collect some birth datas of those people who can remember their previous births. I have collected those datas from various books and internet. I am thankful to them.Astrologically speaking a person’s natal chart does contain indicators for knowing the past and future births.

In a classic astrology book named Phaladeepika, we come to know how to predict past and future births. The author of this book is Manteswara, in the 14th chapter there comes information on astrological pointers to know previous and future births. According to Phaladeepika, the 9th house holds the key.

If 9th lord in natal chart is exalted, the previous birth was in a high society of good people. If 9th lord in natal chart is in debility or in enemy’s sign, the previous birth was in a different country. If 9th lord is in his own house or in a freind’s house, the previous birth was in the same country where the person belongs (Manteswara states Bharat Varsha/India).

In such cases, if 9th lord happens to be Jupiter, the person was born in Aryavarta (Himalayas Vindhyas area).

If 9th lord happens to be Venus or Moon, the person was born near sacred rivers such as Ganga,
Narmada, Kavery etc.

If 9th lord happens to be Mercury, the person was born near places of God like Lord Vishnu or Lord
Shiva.

If 9th lord happens to be Saturn, the person was born in meleccha desha- outside of India or where
Vedic culture is not prevailed.

If 9th lord happens to be Sun, the person was born in a place of forests or mountains.

If 9th lord happens to be Mars, the person was born in places where living was difficult.

To detect future birth we judge 5th lord carefully. To detect future birth same rules are applicable as
mentioned above. But here 5th lord should be judged instead of 9th lord.

Now we have to judge what kind of birth we spent during last birth and what kind of birth we will spend in future birth- whether as plant life or animal life.

According to Vedic philosophy the souls are born in four forms- as Devas, Human, Animals and Plant life.

Manteshwaraclearly states in his book Phaladeepika regarding this :

If the 9th lord is placed in Bhustadhaya rashi which is fixed sign also, the previous birth was that of same Vegetarian.

If the 9th lord is placed in Seershadhaya rashi which is movable sign also, the previous birth was that of same living being, either animal or man.

If the 9th lord is placed in exaltation sign or own house or friend’s house of the lagna lord, the previous
birth was that of a human being.

If the 9th lord is placed in neutral sign of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of an animal.
If the 9th lord is placed in enemy sign of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of a bird.

To detect future birth judge 5th lord in the same way as mentioned above.

These are the rules given by the famous astrologer Manteswara in his monumental book named –
“Phaladeepika”.

We get some more clues regarding past and future births from “Brihat Jataka”- by Varahamihira.

According to Varahamihira, Jupiter,Moon and Venus, Sun and Mars, Saturn and Mercury bring people from Devloka, Pitriloka, Tiryagloka and Narakloka. respectively.

We have to judge first who is powerful among Sun and Moon is rashi chart. We have to choose the powerful one and see its position in Drekkana chart. The lord of that house signifies the key of previous birth.

In such a lord in D3 is Jupiter, it signifies that the person was in Devaloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord is Moon or Venus then that person was in Pitriloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord in D3 is Sun or Mars then that person was in Tiryaloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord in D3 is Mercury or Saturn then that person was in Narakloka before his birth on earth.

To detect future birth take 8th lord and see the D3 chart where 8th lord occupies. The lord of the 3rd
house of 8th lord signifies future birth of native.

If such lord is exalted or in benefic position, then we come to this conclusion that person has enjoyed high status in that loka. If it is opposite then reversed result is indicated.

Now I am going to discuss on some case histories regarding this. I have collected these case histories from some books and internet. At the end of my article I will mention regarding this.

1. Shanti Devi and Ms Lugdi devi –

In Delhi, a little girl was born named Shanti. She was born on 11th december, 1926 at 13:48 pm. She gave an elaborate description about her past life. Common public were astonished having heard her statements. In her previous birth she was known as Ms Lugdi, died on 4th october 1925 during delivery of her third child. All of her statements were verified carefully by respected and educated persons including Mahatma Gandhi. Shanti Devi never married due to fear of pregnancy.

A) Chart of Lugdi Devi –

D.O.B- 18.01.1902, T.O.B- 10 AM, P.O.B- Mathura (U.P)

She died in Moon dasha-Rahu antardasha.This is Lugdi Devi’s chart who died at the time of delivery. She was born as Shanti Devi in her future birth.

Now Let’s examine her chart. Her 5th lord as well as 8th lord is Mercury. We all know 5th lord is indicator of future birth. 5th house lord Mercury occupies in 12th house in Capricorn. Capricorn is Saturn’s house. Saturn here lagna lord also. 5th lord Mercury is occupied in 12th house which is friend’s house of Mercury.

It denotes that native’s future birth will be as human. As we know Manteshwara states in his book ‘Phaladeepika’ – that if 9th or 5th lord isin own house or in a friend’s house then previous and future birth forms as human being and in same country.

Here Lugdi’s 5th lord Mercuryis in 12th house that means Saturn’s house which isher lagnesh also. Saturn’s friend is Mercury. So Lugdi Devi’s future birth would be as human being in same country that is India. Lugdi Devi reincarnated as Shanti Devi in her future birth. Lugdi Devi’s 5th lord Mercury occupies in venus navamsha. Venus occupies in lagna, Venus indicates sacred river such as Ganga, Yamuna, Kaveri etc. Lugdi Devi born as Shanti Devi in her future birth in Delhi where sacred Yamuna river exists.

Now I am going to discuss on Shanti Devi’s birth chart who was Lugdi Devi in previous birth. Born in Rahu mahadasha and Mercury antardasha.

Shanti Devi known as Lugdi Devi in her previous birth. Shanti Devi’s 9th lord is Mars, occupied in own house, aries. As per Manteshwara’s ‘Phaladeepika’- If 9th lord is in own house or in friend’s house, previous birth was as human being in same country. We know Lugdi Devi is born as Shanti Devi in Mathura. Mars is in Moon navamsa. Moon denotes sacred river such as Ganga, Yamuna etc. Mathura is near to sacred river Yamuna.

Notes: –

i) We observe that Lugdi’s ascendant was kumbha where Shanti Devi’s (incarnation of Lugdi Devi) ascendant is Meen, 2nd house of Kumbha. It means where Lugdi ended her life journey from there Shanti Devi started her journey again in a different physical body.

ii) Lugdi died in Moon dasha and Rahu antardasha. Shanti devi was born in Rahu mahadasha and Mercury antardasha.

2. Another case study of reincarnation is Rampratap Singh. Rampratap Singh was born in 10th january at 10:30 am in Delhi. He could remember his previous birth. According to him, he was born in same family where he is born in this birth. He died by an accident took place on 6th february 1983. In his previous birth he was born 30th december 1958 at 8:55 pm, Delhi. Now I am going to analyse his previous birth chart and his this existance birth chart.

Previous birth of Rampratap Singh

D.O.B- 30.12.1958, T.O.B- 08:55 PM, P.O.B- Delhi

This is the birth chart of Rampratap Singh’s previous existence. Let us analyse this. 5th lord denotes future birth. Here 5th lord occupies in 10th house in Aries sign which is Mars own sign. According to Manteshwara, If 5th lord is in own house or in a friend’s house, future birth will be as human being in same country. In his next birth the native born in same country and same city.

Now we will discuss his present birth chart. In his previous birth he died on 6th february 1983. And the
native born as Rampratap Singh on -10th january 1984 at 10:30 am in Delhi.

He was born in Saturn dasha aand mars antardasha.

His 9th lord Venus and 10th lord Mars interchanges house. So no malefic results will be occured. Venus is in star of Mercury. Mercury is friend of Saturn and Venus. So it indicates Rampratap Singh’s previous birth was as human being in a same country, same city. As his Lagna is in even sign and as his ascendant is in moon’s hora, Rampratap Singh is born in same family where he was born in his previous birth.

Case Study number- 3

Another rebirth case study I am going to mention here. The name of this person is Pooran Singh. He was born on 9th december 1968 at 4:10 am, Kapurthala.This person can remember his previous birth.

According to him he was born on 19th november 1929 at 6:26 pm at Moga and died on 19th may 1966 by an accident.

Pooran Singh’s previous birth chart-

He died in 19th may 1966 in Saturn dasha and Mercury antardasha.

From 5th lord we judge future birth. 5th lord Mercury is in 6th house Libra which is Venus sign. Venus is lagnesh and 6th lord also. Mercury and Venus are mutual friends of each other. In famous astrological book ‘Phaladeepika’, Manteshwara states that if 5th lord is occupied in own house or friend house then native’s future birth will be as human being and he will born in same country and same region. Hence all the combinations are fulfilled. After death the native is born as Pooran Singh at Kapurthala. Kapurthala and Moga’s distance is not so far. Both places are under Punjab state. Now i am going to analyse his present birth chart.

Pooran Singh

D.O.B- 09.12.1968, T.O.B- 4:10 AM, P.O.B- Kapurthala

Born in Saturn dasha and Mercury antardasha.From 9th house we denotes previous birth. 9th lord is Mercury occupies in 2nd house Scorpio with Sun and Mercury both are in Jyestha star which is Mercury Star. Mars is in Virgo which is Mercury’s house.So Mercury and Mars both interchanges each others house. Mercury’s signification is prime here. As a result we come to this conclusion that native was born in human being in his previous birth in same
region.

Note:- In his previous birth he died in Saturn dasha and mercury antardasha. In his present birth he was born in same dasha and antardasha. Soul has just changed new mortal body. Soul’s evaluation is continuously going on.In his previous birth chart ascendant was Taurus that is Venus sign. In this present birth he is born under Libra ascendant which is Venus sign too.

In Shashta Kanda of Mahabharat, Lord Shiva explains to Goddess Parvati: –

“Tasmajjatismara loke jayante Badhshanyukta
Tesha Vivardhatam sangya swapanvat sa pranashyati
Parlokashya chesitatve moodhanam karanam tuidam “

It means when a person who dies suddenly somewhere and is born again suddenly, his old habits and samskaars may remain for some time. But as they grow up, their old memories disappear like dreams.In this way birth and death cycle is going on. It will never be ended until soul get salvation or moksha.

Thats why Adi Shankaracharya states-

“Punaropi Jananam Punaropi maranam, punoropi janani jathare shyanam
Tha samsare khalu dustare – kripayapare pahi murae.”

It means we take birth again and again and die again anad again, sleep again and again in the womb of
mother. The world is so difficult place to stay. Oh God! rescue me from all this anad give me salvation.

Decoding Vedic Astrology Dasha system and how does it impacts our Karma and life-cycle

Vedic Astrology Dasha Systems

 

What is Dasha period ?  How does it impact our Karma and life-cycle ?

Dasha is all about your total sanchit karma , the storage point of all the Karma’s that you have gathered from the total birth journeys. It has two major points one should always keep in mind; major portion of dasha period speaks about  your prarabdha karma that is we can only see from the placement of the planets in the natal chart, means your all the bad deeds from the portion of total accumulated karma’s rest of the Karma is your sanchit karma (Left behind) where it shows good part of karma that can be trigger at any moment in native life. Choices always depends on your prayers and good deeds, they are changeable in nature. That’s the reason whenever there is an adverse dasha running in your natal chart it is very hard to avoid the results of the dasha period  as they represents all the misdeeds in the form of prarabdha karma. But if your 9th house or its lord is well placed or there are placement of beneficial planets in the 9th house or lagnesh ( 1st house lord) or 9th lord is forming relationship with each other you can get relaxation in the form of remedies.For remedies to work there should be a good linkage between 9th, lagna and 12th house if 9th is not forming any relationship with the said houses it is very difficult for a native to get expected results for their respective remedies. 9th house is the house of higher god, dharma and prayers, if it is well disposed it is possibly a good reason one can expect the results of remedies soon. Majorly karmic remedies always start working in your life via the 9th house activation with the help of Guru or a good jyotishi guidance. Majorly Dasha period speaks about your temporary Karma’s that one has to face during the time period those are difficult to change and that can trigger at any moment in any fixed duration. But when that results can comes in your life is totally dependent on the transit of the major planets like Saturn, Jupiter and Rahu/ketu over your natal planets. Transits are the delivery boy and dasha period is your parcel of all the Karma’s. When that event has to come only deliver boy can decides it. Transits has major role in transforming your whole life as they indicates about the actions period of the karma or in layman language it shows the timing of the events. Transits are indicative of the new karmas that one can do during the dasha period. It gives you a chance to work on your self, improve your life and do good deeds in the form of kiryamana karma ( The new Karma). Generally we can know the kiryamana karma by the Prashna chart  or by the 6th and 10th lord in natal chart.

In Dasha Systems, Vimshottari Dasha is most famous among all. Vimshottari Dasha that operates in any native life explains about certain life events those are in sync with your age like if Saturn MD or AD dasha operates in the age of 36 native will learn, grows or matures a lot w.r.t to his life lessons, karma, Career and he will meet many people in his life which will totally changes his experiences, wisdom and thinking power. Same way if Mercury dasha operates at the 32 of age of he will experience certain learning experiences wrt to expanding his social circle, meeting and leaving new friends, enhancing new skills, learning new sets of logic’s, improving intelligence etc. Thing is Purpose of every dasha beginning is to teaches you certain life lessons and understanding your life path at those fixed age. Vimsotri dasha is all about understanding and experiencing your Prarabdha and sanchit karmas and when certain transits align or meet with these dasha periods native life get total change in his life and in this new life cycle and life experiences both the Rahu/Ketu plays very a major and important roles in either giving you or taking everything you have in their Dashas and transits over natal chart.

The Biggest truth of planetary motion is  that they have major role in impacting human life cycle and certain karmas. The greatest impact of planetary force on human being is it can effect your state of mind, decision making, circumstances, situations, appearance, aura, and most importantly all the personality traits are dependent on the transits and dashas and it has greater impact on human mind first. Vimshottari dasha is one such tool you can read and analyze it well and in my observation Vimshottari dasha is all about your traits and planetary placements from the moon in natal chart, which can read your mind setup, environment and circumstances. That’s the reason I prefer to see vimsotri dasha first-most for all the human traits those can impact your status of mind, thoughts and decision making.One should always gives much focus on all these parameters while analysing the vimsotri dasha and impact of planetary force on human mind setup but one of major loophole in vimsotri dasha is decision of karma is always pending in your hand in any of the dasha period. your Agami karma always decides your kiryamani karma,so do not ignore the importance and purpose of birth given to you over vimsotri dasha.Your birth is all about your current karma over previous prarabdha.

In This article we will try to learn about all the Major dashas system and we will explain each dashas in their consecutive parts in future articles. So first lets try to understand  different dasha systems we can use in natal chart one by one.Among all Most famous is Vimshottari Dasha respectively and rest of the dasha periods are used according to their requirements and condition’s in natal chart.

1)Vimshottari Dasha:

Most Known Dasha System based on Movement of Moon on the progression of Nakashtras at the time of birth (Tithi – Longitudinal distance of Sun and Moon).Total 9 Nakashtras Forms a complete 120 year of dasha system as equals as life cycle in kaliyug, as suggested by some of sages.It is presumed as total life span of human being in kaliyug would be of around about 100 to 120 years.

Total Nakashtras are 27 ( 9*3 = 27 Nakashtras – forms 3 different Nakashtras based progressive Vimsotri Dasha system). for e.g If one is Born in Jyestha Nakashtra – Dasha of the native will starts from Mercury ( Lord of Jyestha) and it goes further up-to rest of 8 Nakashtras, like Moola ( Ketu Dasha) ,Poorva ashada ( Lord Venus) and finally it will end at Uttrabhadra Nakaashtra (Lord Saturn). Every Preceding Nakashtra has Major role in Forming Mental Setup of Native during the progressions of Vimsotri Dasha lords in VM Dasha system .Starting point of Dasha system is Ashwani (Nakashatra lord is Ketu) and end of Dasha system is Revti Nakashtra.

VMD Dasha System is a Commonly used Dasha system but Less in its accuracy and timing Events, in its application & usage, if one is not aware of Usage of Nakashtras and Degree Concepts with accurate Birth time in VMD system, than its not easy to Use it wisely with perfection, VMD perfection need case studies of lots of people and in depth knowledge of Nakashtras, Degrees, Padas and art of Birth time rectification process. So, what i believe is knowledge of Degrees and Nakashtras is must while timing events in VMD Dasha system.

If during the birth, Moon is Stronger in strength; means birth In Brighter nights (Shukala Pakasha), we considered Moon as Stronger. During Brighter Nights Moon is ahead of Sun and more powerful to receive Sun Beneficial Rays which are directly gone impact people mindset, who will take birth in earth during this period of time.

Most of Beneficial Works are done in Shukala Pakasha tithis. Even in Bhagwada Geeta it is Mentioned as – Birth in Shukala Paksha leads to Heaven and people who gone die at same tithi and same Pakasha never come back to earth in material world.

Those who are Born in Krishana Pakasha they used to come back to material world again and again until and unless karmic balance is equals to zero. So, those people who are born in Brighter Nights (Shukala Pakasha tithi ), can use VMD Dasha system blindly in Natal and Divisional Charts without any 2 views.
For its applicability, Check the Strength of VMD Dasha lords by Making Moon as Reference Point and Extracts the result of VMD Dasha lord by its Nakashtra and its Lord in Natal Chart.
Those who are Born in Darker Nights ( Krishna Pakasha), we considered Moon as weaker being in darker side of Sun, not able to receive full rays of Sun. Those people who are born in Krishna Pakasha Tithi – Either they should use Yogini Dasha System or Ancient Dasha system based on 108 years of cycle (Ashtottari Dasha system) as explained by Lord Shiva for timing events and Dasha results in Kaliyug.
Moon & Nakashtras are the base for Vimshottari Dasha System & it should be given Higher Priority over Planets placement in Natal and Divisional charts while analyzing Results for any Dasha Period ( Either it is MD , Ad or PD or Sookashmaa Dasha). VMD Gives Events based on what Mind Will Show and Experience you a Picture.
In My calculation its Accuracy is 60-70%.

2) Yogini Dasha System:

Best Dasha System Used in Kalyug for timing Events based on 8 Yoginis and Starting from Moon Nakashtara.Goddess Parvati asked Lord Shiva, “There are innumerable dasha systems in astrology, but in the Kaliyuga, which dasha would tell us in a flash the results of a person’s Karma?.”Lord Shiva said, “It is the Yogini dasha.” And thus Lord Shiva revealed this dasha to Goddess Parvati. In the Kaliyuga, after careful examination of this dasha on a chart, the results do not go wrong. By knowing the mere name of the Yogini operating for a person, the things happening in the life of that person during the period of Yogini can be known.

According the Rudrayamal, the Yogini dasha gives excellent results in Kaliyuga:

There are eight types of Yoginis: Mangala, Pingala, Dhanya, Bhramari, Bhadrika, Ulka, Siddha and Sankata. It is believed that the planets Moon, Sun, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Venus and Rahu have evolved respectively from the Yoginis Mangala, Pingala, etc.

The total duration of Yogini Dasha is 36 years. Shorter the Dasha system is More accurate is the result.

It is the Best Dasha System for timing events based on Nakshtras unconditionally. Yogini dasha is a nakshatrika dasha based on the nakshatra of the Moon at the time of birth.Quite Accurate in predicting events approximately about 90 to 95 % what i believe in its usage.

3) Ashtottari Dasha System:

Ashtottari dasa is also another Dasha System based on Nakshtras but it is conditional Dasha System applicable on Some of Conditions and perhaps the most popular dasa system in India after Vimsottari dasa.Based on 108 Cycle of years.It as a conditional dasa applicable only in some charts.

Maharishi Parashar explained as: O Brahmin, the sages have recommended the adoption of Ashtottari, when Rahu not being in Lagn, in any other Kendr, or Trikon to the Lord of the Lagn. From 4 Nakshatras from Ardra commences the Dasha of Surya, from 3 after that begins the Dasha of Candr, 4 after that will bring the Dasha of Mangal, 3 after that the Lord of Dasha will be Budh, 4 therefrom will have Sani, as the Dasha Lord, 3 thereafter the Lord will be Guru, Rahu will be the Lord of the Dasha 4 Nakshatras after that and then Sukr will take over the lordship of the Dasha 3 Nakshatras from the last one mentioned above.

The Lord of the Dasha at birth will be determined by counting in this order up to the Janm Nakshatr. The duration of Ashtottari Dasha for Surya, Candr, Mangal, Budh, Sani, Guru, Rahu and Sukr are 6, 15, 8, 17, 10, 19, 12 and 21 in that order. Thus in this Dasha system only 8 Grahas play the role of Dasha Lords, Ketu having been denied this privilege.

Simply Its Working is based on , If the birth (of the native) is in Krishna paksha (or the dark half of the month) or at night in sukla paksha (the bright half of the month) and that Rahu is in a quadrant (Kendra) or trine (trikona) from the lord of the lagna ( that location is also called the paka lagna).

In this system, the sum of all dasas is 108 years.

Ashtottari means “ashtottara sata”, i.e. one hundred and eight. Because poornaayush (full life) of a man is 108 years suggested by some of sages for kaliyug, some scholars have suggested that ashtottari dasa is best used as an ayur dasa, i.e. a dasa that shows longevity.

There are three different views on the applicability of Ashtottari dasa:

(1) Ashtottari dasa is applicable in all charts.

(1) Ashtottari dasa is applicable if Rahu, who is not in lagna, is in a quadrant or a trine from lagna lord.

(1) Ashtottari dasa is applicable for daytime births in Krishna paksha (darker fortnight) and night time births in Sukla paksha (brighter fortnight).

Some people use Ashtottari dasa as an ayur dasa and see longevity in it. Some other people use Ashtottari dasa as a phalita dasa. Because only chara karakas, i.e. Rahu and the seven planets, have dasas under the Ashtottari dasa scheme, it may also be suggested that it shows events related to sustenance, achievements, raja yogas and moksha (just like chara karakas do). Some people, however, prefer to see all matters in Ashtottari dasa..Accuracy is higly depends on its usage.

4) Kalachakra Dasha system:

Kalachakra Dasa is also Nakashtras Based Dasha like Vimsottari based upon the position of the Moon in Lunar mansion.Kalachakra is based upon Nakshatra Padas (instead of Nakshatras).It is a Rasi Dasa and Rasi Dasa lords are important to Predicting events not the planets.

The Dasa is extremly sensitive for birth time and Ayanamsa changes. So it is applicable only if the native’s birth time is quite accurate. A change of Ayanamsa can result in completely different results.It is Only Applicable in Navamsa.It is Quite accurate in Predicting marriage related events and accuracy is about 90% if birth time is accurate.

5) Narayana Dasha:

One of Best Dasha System in vedic Astrology based on Movement of Rasi’s. Narayana dasa is a very important rasi dasa as It is a phalita dasa that shows all general results based on Material Success, if the Lord Naryana is Promising the material success in our Chart this Dasha will show how we Growing Materially and this Dasha works with Sudasa Dasha(Laxmi Dashsa) and Runs Parallel with Narayana Dasha if Narayana is Promising than Goddess Laxmi will shower Extensively result for Success and growth.

Narayana dasa is computed differently for different divisional charts and we can use Narayana dasa of a divisional chart to predict matters related to that divisional chart.

Narayana dasa is based on the progression of lagna in one’s life. As one dasa ends and another starts, one rasi stops being the progressed lagna and another rasi becomes one’s progressed lagna. Using the progressed lagna as the reference, we find out the events that happen in that dasa. Thus we get twelve charts for each person, with each chart applicable in one dasa.Very accurate in Predicting and timing Events in Horoscope approximately 99%.

6) Chara Dasha:

This is another very Important Dasha system based on Rasi dasha.this Dasha System is made By Jamini based on 7 Chara Karkas and Predictions are Purely timed on 7 charakarkas and their meanings.Very accurate Dasha system.This Dasha System works on the basis of 7 PlanetsSun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus & Saturn and their Proceedings Degrees.

The planet with highest degree in a Natal Horoscope is known as Atmakaraka (AK – enjoys the status of Lagna); the planet with 2nd highest degree is known as Amatyakaraka (Amk – signifies 10th house/professional matter); the planet with 3rd highest degree is known as Bhratrikaraka (BK – signifies coborns/3rd house significations); the planet with 4th highest degree is known as Matrikaraka (MK – signifies/4th house significations); the planet with 5th highest degree is known as Putrakaraka (PK – offspring/5th house significations); the planet with 6th highest degree is known as Gnatikaraka (GK – enemies/obstacles/diseases/6th house significations) and the planet with 7th highest degree is known as Darakaraka (DK – significator of spouse/7th house significations).

7) Sudasa Dasa System:

Sudasa is a rasi dasa. It is also called “Sree Lagna Kendradi Rasi Dasa” or simply “Rasi Dasa”. Its computation is based on kendras etc from Sree Lagna. Sudasa is important for materialistic things like money, power and authority. It can be used to predict financial matters and matters related to status and power. If a political leader occupies a post of power, he must be enjoying a favorable dasa as per Sudasa. If a businessman sees increasing profits, he must be enjoying a favorable dasa as per Sudasa. If someone struggles with tight finances, he must be going through an unfavorable dasa as per Sudasa.If Someone Struggles with the Tight Finances, He Must be Going through an unfavourable dasa as per Sudasa Dasha.

Narayan dasa indicates how the environment is presented to you.Vimshottari or Ashtottari Dasa shows how the native responds to the influences of the environment.the final decision of the native (Vimsottari) will depend on the resources available at hand (Sudasa) so it Shows effort and environment provided by Narayana Dasha..Lakshmi is the giver of all prosperity and it shows when you get opportunity . While Narayana governs the environment and effort, Lakshmi governs the prosperity and well-being. As Rajya Lakshmi, she gives power. As Dhana Lakshmi, she gives money. As Arogya Lakshmi, she gives health. As Vidya Lakshmi, she gives learning. And so on. She is the giver of all prosperity.

Thus we can see when Lakshmi’s blessings come in a particular matter (in terms of prosperity). Remember that Narayana governs effort and Lakshmi governs prosperity! Both together define what happens to a person.This Dasha is quite Accurate wrt to Narayana Dasha and works perfectly with 99%.

8) Drig-Dasha System:

It is also a Rasi Dasa Which Means Visions and works on Aspects of Rasi dashas.It Shows How Spritual Vision Develops in a native Move ones life.It Shows Religious and Spirituals activities and the evolution of ones Soul.

9)Niryaana Shoola Dasha:

Niryaana Means Death and Shoola is a Weapon of Lord Shiva and who is the lord of Distruction and this dasha dasha system is Works as per Mahesh destruction so it is used for timing of death , Pain and Suffering one may face during the Life last Part.

An Astrological case study: Blessing to Science, Man of Cosmos The Albert Einstein Life biography

 

Brain Behind Unfolding Secrets of Cosmos

“It is not enough that you should understand about applied science in order that your work may increase man’s blessings. Concern for the man himself and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavours; concern for the great unsolved problems of the organisation of labour and the distribution of goods in order that the creations of our mind shall be a blessing and not a curse to mankind. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations.”

Above mentioned Quotes Said by One of Famous Personality in the history of Science, None another “Albert Einstein ”

About Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was born at Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879. Six weeks later the family moved to Munich, where he, later on, began his schooling at the Luitpold Gymnasium. Later, they moved to Italy and Albert continued his education at Aarau, Switzerland and in 1896 he entered the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich to be trained as a teacher in physics and mathematics.

Early Childhood and Family Life:

 


As per the Date of Nobelprize.org based on Albert Einstein  life history he started his educations

“In 1901, the year he gained his diploma, he acquired Swiss citizenship and, as he was unable to find a teaching post, he accepted a position as technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office. In 1905 he obtained his doctor’s degree. Einstein always appeared to have a clear view of the problems of physics and the determination to solve them. He had a strategy of his own and was able to visualize the main stages on the way to his goal. He regarded his major achievements as mere stepping-stones for the next advance. At the start of his scientific work, Einstein realized the inadequacies of Newtonian mechanics and his special theory of relativity stemmed from an attempt to reconcile the laws of mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. He dealt with classical problems of statistical mechanics and problems in which they were merged with quantum theory: this led to an explanation of the Brownian movement of molecules. He investigated the thermal properties of light with a low radiation density and his observations laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. Most Important Factor is what made Einstein so much specialized in presenting his theories of cosmos and idea of his creations and how he got so many brilliant ideas for his vivid imaginations wrt to Cosmology. This is truly a most astonished and achievable point for me to understand his scientific life path.”

Even with so much brilliant intellect, there were so much up’s and down in his whole Career life -beginning from his childhood days to earlier career life – Einstein struggled a lot to get recognise his theories.

It took me so much time to understand the brilliance intellectual of Einstein.

There are two most important points one should keep in mind while analyzing any chart for career selection that what I had observed and felt during the course of my research. It’s not necessary for what subject we study in higher education we can get a job regarding the same profile. In my 90% of astrological experience what I have found people have studied something else and they are mostly doing the job in different profile and in the different industrial sector.

Point to ponder on it, why it is happening mostly ?

Do you know why ?

Answer is very simple –

It’s not necessary what we study based on 4th (Schooling), 9th (Bachelor or Higher Study) and 5th (technical and Creative studies) gives us the job and earning from same. All three houses have no connection with the wealth houses or upchaya houses (Growth Giving houses). for earning from the Educational sector, One should have strong connection ofupchaya (2nd, 6th, 10th and 11th) houses lords with all three education houses. Wealth belongs to 2nd and 11th Houses; their placement, Lord and Strength of Dhana Karka planets plays a major role in deciding prospects of Finance via Education sector planets. In General Jupiter and Karma, Karka Saturn has a major role in deciding our profession and career stream, that we can check in both D1, D9 and D10 Chart. Unless and until there will be a connection of 9th, 5th, 10th house or lord connectivity with 2nd and 11th lord we cannot earn from Same. Now coming to Main Post;

This Article Belongs to One of most Ingenious Scientist of the 20th Century ” ‪#‎Albert‬ Einstein.

 

Exceptionally Human in nature, an Ingenious Scientist who was able to decode God Cosmos Structure by his theoretical calculations and forumlated an eqation of E=MC2 for understanding Mass and Energy as one form via his Special Relative theory and further worked on visualiszing concept of theory of everything; The General Theory of Relativity. Both the Theores are considered as benchmark in decoding Higher Cosmos for understanding Structure of time and Space.

About Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was a German-Swiss-American scientist, a physicist who developed the theory of relativity in 1905, and the general theory in 1916 after a Much struggle and controversies were able to Prove it after the long gap of 7 years, laying the groundwork for 20th-century physicists and providing the essential structure for the cosmos.

Having IQ level of 160 at the age of 14 Taught himself integral and calculus and analytic Geometry from books, Because of Surya- Budh Yoga, Einstein revolutionized the basic Structure of Physics with Impossible and unimaginable ideas in the Era of Atomic age around the 19th century.

Now what are the rules to understand how planetary combinations have a major role on deciding profession in science stream:
Here is the basic understanding of planetary nature, Cracking Down Career Field in Science, being physicist’s,  Astronomer, Astrophysics or Being a Scientist? 

Introduction 


Karka of Science – Sun- Denotes Knowledge of Cosmos, Creation and Deep Knowledge.
Saturn + Jupiter + Sun Mainly seen for this career, though Karka of Physics are: Sun + Mercury if they are falls in trine to Moon.

Karka of Scientists are:

1) Ketu: – A Genius Scientist, Expert in Philosophy of High Machines, Higher Mathematics, and Art of Statistical analysis, an expert in higher Calculations and mathematics.

2) Rahu: Working with Highly Technical Machines which are highly intelligent in core structure having Huge size and big in mass i.e. Atomic and Nuclear Bombs, knowledge of Gases and Representer of true Researcher and working with Secret Societies and working Underground.

3) Mercury: Art Of Analysis, Thinking in a Unique way, Knowledge of Electronics, Communication, IT Technology & Media, Journalism, Writing, Accounting and Sharp Intelligence and logical Calculations if aspect by Rahu or by Mars and or in Rahu Nakashtra it makes a brilliant Scientist.

4) Sun: Karka of the source of Knowledge, Knowledge of Cosmos & Creation, knowledge of Godly things i.e. Geeta, Vedanta, Bhagwat Puraan etc., it indicates the clue for Source of Knowledge – where knowledge originates, Lord of Strings Based Musical instruments i.e. Guitar, violin, taan Pura etc.

5) Saturn : Knowledge of traditional Studies which have deep roots from old Traditions i.e ancient scriptures, Astrology, Vedic Astronomy, Shashtras etc and when it Combine with Jupiter or Sign of Jupiter or Vice versa (Jupiter with Saturn or in Sign of Saturn) it gives Brahma Yoga or finest knowledge of Creation and passing down to others in a traditional way or working in traditional knowledge’s i.e. Study of the Cosmos, Universe, space, time-based on Vedic Cosmology etc.

6) Jupiter: Karka of Dhi and Philosophy and power of discretion through knowledge, Knowledge of God or God Blessing and knowledge of Vedas, Shasta’s, most highest knowledge, karaka of Apara Vidya, – the knowledge which never Destroyed in the Cosmic cycle of birth and death which we called Supreme or Divine knowledge – Real Karka of Scientist and Being philosopher and Preaching Higher Cause.

7) Venus: Karka of Para Vidya and Knowledge of Shastra’s and making harmonic relation with nature and the finest author who can write with beauty and complete harmony.

When we combine all, the Finest Scientist like Albert Einstein will be born who can Present Science into new Shape and New Ideas.

Now the point is how to analyze career in ” Scientific field “, it is not an easy job to crack down career in the scientific field and having brilliant thinking like Albert Einstein, only he has that unique ability and imaginative thinking out of frame from usual physicists ideology.

He was the blessed scientist able to decode the hidden meaning of God and his nature, so giving him name “Messenger of the God ” (Jupiter in 9th house) won’t be a big thing for his notifying career in science and physics, to understand and present God Cosmos and Creation in a Unique Style to mankind.

He was the only Scientist expert in theoretical physics in 19th century, believed in Approaching and Solving Cosmological Mysteries by his ingenious mathematical abilities in paper.

Now the question is What are the ways to Analyses Career?

Coming to Post how we can analyze career and professional achievements.

 

Available detail of Albert Einstein is:

Date of Birth: 14 March 1879,
Time of Birth: Available time- 11:30 Am (Standard Time), (Fixed time, which I corrected, based on his life events was: 11:36:29 Am) Place of Birth: Ulm, Germany,
Long and Lat: 48n24, 10e00, Timezone: LMT m10e00 (is local mean time).

 

Initial Factors before analysis :

While doing initial Calculation in birth chart analysis of Albert Einstein with available birth time  @11:30 am, I was not so sure about Einstein would have such an Ingenious Career in the scientific field if we take Aquarius as D9 Lagna with Venus and Mars in Lagna. With Current Lagana it be would be an impossible deal to say that he would be having an un-matchable imagination with style of visualising things in a lucid way none other can imagine.

The presence of Venus and Mars in D9 lagan only can give Passionate nature in Music, Romanticism in an unconventional style and usually gives Natural artistic skills and talents with handsome and attractive appearance those are linked with Both Mars and Venus. Though he has a very youthful appearance that matches more with Gemini traits of 4th pada or might be having an influence of Mercury over D9 Lagana.

But if we slightly move birth time to few minutes forward, to Pisces Lagna, it can give me a clue of having an Expansive and imaginative nature with an unusual out of Box Style thinking of Albert Einstein. Rahu in D9 Lagna in Pisces clearly matches over the choice of career and traits of scientific bent of mind, looking everything in different way and style, having natural tendency for observing everything in micro point of view and adept in rejecting causal way of philosophical systems and Laws of nature, that what science has propagated at that time. Only strong Rahu over Lagana has that ability and power to accept unconventional ideas those are beyond imagination for any set of mind.

Usually, Expansive and imaginative nature ruled by Guru and out of Box thinking ruled By Rahu, but If we combine both we can get a person who can think and imagine in an unusual way, or who can dig deep with an unconventional and different set of rules till that he never gets his answer.

So, I was quite assured about Rahu in Pisces Lagna in D9 would definitely give an expansive and highly visualized thinking for the scientific career.

If we take Gemini Lagan with 4th pada, we would be having an ambitious Rahu ruling the Ascendant nakshatra and Mercury will be ruling the lagna Rashi and with Guru ruling over d9, it will definitely form a hyper-expansive pair.

Being born in Gemini 4th Padas of Ardara, It will give an extravagant, expediently generous, but not normally reckless, Huge adventure, large-scale speculation, enormous having “animal fantasy” potential for gaining tremendous knowledge if Guru is well disposed in the Horoscope.

After Approaching to final conclusion, changed the birth time to 11:36:29 AM, where the birth time would be in 4th pada of Pisces Navamasa lagan, Rahu placed in Pisces sign ( the Sign of Deep Mystery, deep imagination, Study of Deep Space and Cosmos). At the Sametime D9 lagnesh lord  is also well placed in the 9th house – Signifies house of Higher Knowledge, philosophy and Deep secrets. The Sign of Scorpio – signifies mystery, transformations, Secret knowledge and Doing Mystical research in Something extraordinary in a Scientific way also aspecting the lagna (where Rahu is placed in Pisces), Sun (also placed in 5th house) from 9th house, clearly indicating a scientist was Born with extra-ordinary knowledge,thoughts and skills and would be having an expert  understanding on Vedanta and Bhagavad  gita philosophy.Further shows that Einstein would be having an utter faith on his Teachers and Guides.

That gives final surety that D9 Lagan should be Pisces rather than Aquarius.

Now, Coming to D1 Being born in Gemini Lagan in Ardra Nakshatra in the 4th Padas of Jupiter, making Albert Einstein an extremely Ingenious, Brilliant in calculus, sharp intellect, well versed in Vedas or Sciences of gods and interested in Astronomy, Cosmos and knowledge of Creation, highly Imaginative, visually ingenious being born in sign of Pisces amsa in d9.

Being born in Gemini ascendant einstein possessing an extreme human nature and having Witty and generous disposing nature, Possess a high degree of self-esteem and brimming confidence, Capable of rising in life by dint of merit alone. Exceptional oratorical and writing capacity well versed in Literature and journalism all things which involved visually or imaginative writing or theoretic writing.

That further can be verified from the placement of the lagnesh mercury being placed in “Poorna chandra” Amsa in d60. Poorna chandra signifies ” Full Moon ” and one would be deeply related to “Pustaka – working with books”.  Nature of Works would be involving those related to printing, publication, distribution, training of Books, writing Journals, or might be work in an Publicity or Advt or Librarians etc.that further shows the life direction or where one applies his intelligence or where actually life direction lies in.

Einstein was exceptionally versed in acts of differentiation and always be misunderstood as being born as an independent & indifferent thinker in Science being born in Ardra Nakshatra. But if we see another side of the frame, it indicates an extraordinary brilliance of intellect and hall of fame, exceptional in the study of literature and science & a keen intent observer of human nature and observing behaviour and act of nature, but negatively it makes always restless.

Now coming to the main theme, how we can analyze career, well for analyzing career in right approach astrologically, there are certain rules that one should have to remember before predicting career stream:

*Rule* 1 :  While analysing Career from Natal chart is ; Most important and firstmost parameter is check the Lagan Sign, its Degree, Nakashtra lord and its placement in both D1 and D9 chart. The Padas lord, Sign being rise in D9 and its placement in D9 shows the actual trait one get naturally or it can indicate natural abilites and skills one have. Ascendant Nakashtra lord Placement in D1 and D9 shows where one applies his intelligence and how that lord influences his thought process for whole life. Most Important factor from above all is see where the Lagan and Nakashtra lord is Placed in D1 and D9. that precisely indicates see what native wanted to do in his life- the ultimate goal of life, it simply indicates about the application of  an Intelligence and where one can learn and utilise his knowledge for what purpose.

Analysis Begins:

Albert Einstein was born in Gemini Lagan in 16 Degree 40 ‘ – The mid Degree ( in 2nd Drekkena) – indicative of Young, Dynamic and revolutionary thinker and must be successful in youth age after 25th to 32 (the Natural Age of Mercury and Youth).

Lagan Nakshatra Lord (Ardara) is in 8th house in Uttrashada nakshatra (Nakshatra lord in 10th house in Pisces Sign – A urge to do something for the society ,to Expose Deep Secrets of cosmos, a help and Knowledgeable Nakashtra in the field of Deep Space and Cosmos ( Pisces)) with exalted 11th lord Mars clearly indicate wanted to do something in the field of research was his ultimate destiny or you can say having gift of aggression , obsession and passion for research, also indicates earning via research and Doing Something out of box in the field of research and finding truth Under the Shell via unique Calculative and Logical style.

Mars and Rahu in 8th house indicates Something explosive in nature, because of this combination Einstein did a major mistake   (Rahu – in the field of research) in his life by presenting his idea to the United States for the research of Atomic Bomb, he got clue his research may lead to something Destructive for mankind in later stage.

“On the eve of World War II in 1939-1940 During Mars ending and Starting Rahu MD period, he endorsed a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt alerting him to the potential development of extremely powerful bombs of a new type” and recommending that the U.S. begin similar research. This eventually led to what would become the Manhattan Project. Einstein supported defending the Allied forces, but largely denounced the idea of using the newly discovered nuclear fission as a weapon. Later, with the British philosopher Bertrand Russell, Einstein signed the Russell–Einstein Manifesto, which highlighted the danger of nuclear weapons because of his atomic theory”.

How to analyse Career: Key house for Career and Goals Accomplishments in life is the 10th house which indicates your work front, your Working environment, your role in Society and all the aspects of Work ruled by 10th house.

**Note** 2:-> Second rule to check Career of the person is to check which planet is stronger in :

1) 10th from Sun

2) 10th from Moon

3) 10th from the lagan.

4) 10th from D9 lagan in D9 – ( for advance Analysis)

5) 10th from Karkamasa in D9 – ( For Advance Analysis)

6) 10th from A10 Arudha in D10- ( for Advanced Analysis)

7) 10th from Arudha Lagna (AL) in D1 and D10 – ( for Advanced Analysis)

8) 10th from Amatya Karka in D9 – (for Advanced Analysis)

1) 10th from Lagan: Indicates what you wanted to do in life in reality, indicates what type of your current karma is you are doing in society or you wanted to do, what actually you are made of or what sort of things making you are interested in doing for the well-being of Society.

2) 10th from Moon: Indicates what are those things which you actually like to do comfortably or those things which you feel comfortable to do or it simply indicates work which sustains you or the mode of income or earning.

3) 10th from Sun: Indicates those works which bring Status and position to the native, it simply indicates Work which brings Authority and power to you.

4) 10th from Arudha lagan: What actually you are doing in society or it is the actual work you are doing in society or the work people getting perception from you. It is the actually Bread and Butter you get from Social society.

**Note** 3 :->Those planets who are stronger from 10th will indicate choice of work you will do in Society.

In Albert Einstein D1 chart 10th from Moon is Empty and having Leo sign, lord of Leo Sun is in Pisces with 5th & 12th lord Venus, 1st & 4th lord Mercury, 8th & 9th lord Saturn, 5th from Moon sign (Scorpio) and Ketu 9th from Moon Indicates an Intuitive person who can see and imagine things in reality with his power of Imagination and visualizing it. A real intellectual and Creative Mind, Having real Imagination, which can imagine with his outstanding visual power, A powerhouse of creativity who can deeply imagine and understand creator equation on Cosmos and knowledge of Cosmos.

All the planetary positions from Moon Made Albert Einstein a real Imaginary and much skilled in visualizing things.

He simply wanted to know the creation of cosmos and understand god equation while making the universe.

Here 10th from Moon is Leo Sign; no planet is there, so we can’t decide 10th from Moon for the native career.

Although 10th from Moon has Jupiter and Mars aspect – Making passionate and very logical in higher learning.

10th from Sun having Sagittarius sign ( sign of Knowledge, the lord is in 9th house 4th from Moon and 12th from Sun – indicates Higher Knowledge and doing research in cosmos will bring his name and fame in worldwide.

Now Last and most important point is cluster of 4 planets are in 10th from Lagan , Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Venus in Pisces Sign clearly indicating doing something deep, mystical and completely dominating the interest of Albert Einstein, telling me something he will do something for the Society and whole public or mass will know him by his work and he will be well known to the whole world. He will do deep for the sake of Society and will be an icon for many people for his accomplishment in higher causes, Pisces is the 12th sign of Kaalpurush – the Sign of cosmos and Deep World in modern terminology we called It Space, cosmos and universe.

Now the question is what would be career type of Albert Einstein?

**Note** 4:-> Whenever you want to see what would be career interest type , we have to see the strength of 10th house and 10th lord placement in D1, D9 and D10 and its nakshatra, nakshatra lord and its pada.

10th lord Jupiter is in 9th house ( House of Higher Knowledge, wisdom, God Messenger, God blessing, Knowledge of Ancient scriptures etc. ) in Aquarius sign ( Mystical Sign of traditional knowledge i.e. Cosmos , astronomy , Stars , space and and knowledge of Creation) , Kendra lord in trikona House – ( raj yoga means work which can give native Name, fame via Higher learning ).

10th lord Jupiter is in 9th house aspecting 1st & 5th house in D1 indicates owner of Supreme knowledge which we called Dhi Shakti – a form of Higher learning – in house of Higher philosophy , Wisdom , something connected with God and creation of God which is clearly indicative of Doing something for Higher cause or Finding truth of creation , a real knowledge of Real medium – Space and time bondage and will be self-learned (aspecting 1st house) will teach whole world via his own findings and give godly knowledge to his future Followers( 5th house).

Same can be confirmed in D9 and D10 Chart, Jupiter is lagan lord of D9 in 9th house in Scorpio sign aspecting lagan having Rahu (Indication of being in Science for out of box thinking – A restless mind) in it , aspecting 5th house having Sun in it , will be a Blessed Researcher who will extract & crack down and write down all his findings of cosmos and secret world and will present to whole world.

In D10 chart Jupiter is with Saturn in Pisces Sign in 5th forming Brahma Yoga ( higher knowledge of creation) house aspecting lagan (where sun is in it in A10 Arudha) , aspecting Venus from 5th house and 7th from AL – Will be known for His Brahma Gyan theories – Theory of Relativity – E= MC2 god equation of cosmos.

10th lord Jupiter is in Aq which is a Mystic sign of traditional knowledge lorded by Saturn and Rahu, Rahu in 8th and Saturn in 10th also indicating Albert wanted to do something in the field of Science for the sake of society for presenting a truth of cosmos for the future wellbeing of mankind.

10th lord is in Dhansitha, Nakashtra lord in 8th house with Rahu – Dhansitha is a Nakashtra of Harmony, a close connection with nature and music, Albert wanted to do research of natural laws and understanding it deeply for the prospects of nature passionately , but he did a mistake (Rahu in 8th house with Mars – Nakashtra lord of 10th lord), by suggesting research for Atomic Bomb based on his Atomic theory which he had a deep guilt in his heart & always realized till his death.

Dhanistha indicates divine power from the” eight Vasus “; its presiding deities happens to be the twenty third birth star, to sparkle in the cosmic firmament. Guided by the planetary force of Mars, Dhanishta Nakshatra stands for symphony, prosperity and adaptability from nature, the eight Vasus are the solar gods of energy and light Because of the influence of ruling Nakashtra of 10th lord Einstein was always having a deep fantasy for Light and its origination.

Native of Dhanishtra nakshatras are usually fond of Music , Symphony and Healing, reciters of rhythmical incantations and also indicates Scientist who likes to do things In fine tuning with nature and god in a perfect harmony with nature which gave him deep interest in forming its Relational theory of Light, energy and Mass is same but form of one another.

There is an Exchange yoga of 10th and 9th lord – Indicates Dharma – Karma adhipati yoga, Dharma hi Karma and Karma hi Dharma – A Sign of Saint and Satvic Soul.

10th Lord Nakashtra Lord Is in 8th house with Rahu clearly indicates native inventions or researches may lead to something destructive for Social mass by mistake(Rahu in Capricorn in 8th house).

Rahu and Mars always indicate something explosive or something is hidden behind the truth which is under cosmos or nature i.e. deep anger is burning under a body and brain.

**Note** 5 :-> Beside 10th lord and Strength of 10th house , Lagan lord placement and its nakshatra is most important and need to check in D1, D9 & D10 chart for tracking career interest and in any house indicates where you are applying the knowledge for creation purpose or destruction purpose or it simply indicates application of your intelligence.

Here lagan lord is in 10th house in D1 and 8th house (Mercury + Saturn) in D9 with 9th lord Saturn and in 4th house in Aq Sign in D10 with Moon again confirming me a Brilliant Analyzer, Deep thinker and Keen observer and the finest researcher.

Although Lagan lord is in debilitation in D1, having neech bhanga too , but being placed in 10 Degree it is away from its deepest debilitation degree of 20 deg , Mercury is in Utrabhadra nakashtra lord of Saturn, making Mercury much stronger, closely conjugated within the orbital distance of 2 degree with 9th and 8th lord Saturn who also happens to be Nakashtra lord of Uttrabhadra indicates Albert was a lover of traditional knowledge in science i.e. he was a deep follower of Isaac Newton, Max Plank, Michael Faraday etc. and he always wanted to do work of old Knowledge’s and giving understanding the concept and giving it in new shape.

Because of this he was always in Contradiction and always faced controversies whenever he presented journals of a new model of old traditional physics laws.

Beside this combination making him very much logical, and deft at skills of calculations strong determination, wisdom and experience.

He was always Penchant for calculation and acquiring wisdom by way of experience which was the essential aspects of his personality. Another interesting aspect of Albert was its changeability.

Owing to this changeability according to the varying needs of circumstances, it was difficult to attribute typical traits to his personality.

He was very attractive features and complexion; excel in attracting attention by virtue of his grace and mannerisms.

He was very much religious and drawn to a high ethical standard and always recluse within the folds of spirituality.

Saturn completely dominated the Mercury in Albert Einstein Chart Which is giving me a clear indication of having the natural bent of mind for doing calculations, logic and much skilled in Scientific hypothesis which is the clear indication of a finest of finest Scientists.

Combination of Saturn and Mercury always indicate the finest scientist who always keeps them-self busy in doing calculations and deep observing nature and Science.

Beside 8th and 9th lord conjugation with Lagnesh Mercury, Sun and Venus is also there in 10th house but not having Close conjugation with Lagnesh Mercury and Saturn, which is good if we look at deeply, all the planets are free from combustion of Sun and 7th from Al – He will be known a public Icon known for his Tremendous knowledge in abstract sciences.

**Conclusion **:-> It is Quiet clear he was a genius Scientist and a blessing to Science and mankind for his theories and Researches.
Financial and Professional Achievements :

Sun Being 3rd lord in 10th house with 5th lord Venus, and lagan lord Mercury and 9th lord Saturn also indicates Albert Einstein was very much Skilled in Music, mainly in those instruments which are having the link with strings.

Albert Einstein was a great Violinist and better than average musicians he was the lover of Symphony and Soothing music and he usually plays the Violins with Club Musicians and most of the time when he always stuck in Some puzzles or mysteries.

Because of the 3rd lord in 10th house, 6th from 3rd house, Albert Einstein had to travel Many Countries for getting Job and career prosperity, have to face many short breaks in career to achieve Professional achievements 8th lord in 10th house clearly indicating it.

Because of the 10th lord is 12th from its own place, 3rd lord in 10th He has to live for small jobs with much smaller earnings in govt offices.

He was a patent officer when he started his career and got rejected in many Institutes, universities and colleges and many Scientific Intuitions when he was trying to apply for Job of Professor or teacher.

Even he has to leave his homeland for completing his technical studies to gain More knowledge (5th and 4th lord in 10th house) to get more technical Jobs.

This was quiet Clear why he has to do many small jobs or live for small perks via his jobs , 2nd lord Moon is in 6th house – 3rd (Less Paid – Hard efforts ; Need to put many efforts in order to get satisfied jobs ) from AL in debilitation ( in Jyestha Nakashtra , Nakashtra Lord is also in Debilitated in 10th house too, he has to do job of Clerks , patent officer and those jobs which are connected with writings – Mercury (1st lord) + Sun(3rd Lord) which are less in perks ) clearly telling me Albert Einstein has to put many Efforts in order to get success and have to stay live with jobs like Clerks and Patent Officers.

His most of His income and Success he got from Fighting’s with competent members in sciences, by defeating rivalries or by proving it right.

Moon in 6th house in debilitation clearly indicating He has to earn by winning over legal Battles and also indicates Albert Einstein had no solid financial support from family and have to fight hard to earn and live , always have to compete with rivalries in order to gain wealth and money and also in personal life wise too.

Native will usually get earning via 8th house matters – if 11th lord is in 8th house with Rahu who is also 9th house – Wealth by research, a hard Earned money.

Mars – Rahu indicating a research gain via same which will give some hypotheses for something explosive which may give the foundation for Explosive matters.

**Note** 6 :-> Its the 2nd lord and 11th lord which decides your source of earning and how much wealth you can earn and what you have to do to get money or type of work you have to do , not what you have studied from 1st , 4th , 5th and 9th house/lord , unless and until both are Connected.

Major Event: Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921-22

In 1922 He got Sum of Rs 20,000 Dollar during Moon Mahadasha (2nd Lord In 6th House – Defeating Enemies and Competing all his close physicists , after Proving it true , Moon in Jyestha Nakashtra, Nakashtra Lord Mercury 7th from Al in 10th house – An Indicator of Fame , Name and Recognizance ) after Winning Nobel Price for for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect ( Effect of Dhanishtha Nakshatra) ” in Quantum physics in 1921 , even he got Rejected many time in Nobel pric e.During 1921-22 Saturn, Rahu and Jupiter all there were closely conjugated in the Virgo sign and are falling to his 4th house, 7th house from the 10th house that clearly shows about some extraordinary major breakthrough in his research career, a world wide recognition or getting name and fame via his researches. 

On November 9, 1922, he was named the winner of the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics ” for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.Albert Einstein received his Nobel Prize one year later, in 1922. During the selection process in 1921, the Nobel Committee for Physics decided that none of the year’s nominations met the criteria as outlined in the will of Alfred Nobel. According to the Nobel Foundation’s statutes, the Nobel Prize can in such a case be reserved until the following year, and this statute was then applied. Albert Einstein, therefore, received his Nobel Prize for 1921 one year later, in 1922.

His name has been synonymous with genius, and the scientific definitions of the modern age–ranging from the Bomb to space travel, electronics and quantum physics – all bear the stamp of his conceptualizations.

Using his theory of quanta (Rahu), Einstein explained the photoelectric effect (Mars in 8th house – 10th Lord Nakashtra Lord in exalted State ). He showed that when quanta of light energy strikes atoms in the metal, the quanta force the atoms to release electrons.

Einstein’s work helped justify quantum theory. The photoelectric cell resulted from Einstein’s work. This device made possible sound motion pictures, television and many other inventions.

Einstein received the 1921-22 Nobel Prize in physics for his paper on quanta.

The work of Planck and Einstein quickly established the Quantum Theory, not only in light but also in many forms of energy. Quantum physics was born.

Event 2:

In 1916 during the Beginning of Sun Mahadasha ( Indicator of Creation) and Sun antardasha He proposes general theory of relativity – still central to our understanding of the universe. Einstein changed the political balance of power in the twentieth century, through his scientific foundation in the development of atomic energy. Einstein’s theory is embodied in his famous equation E=mc². Although light photons don’t have mass, they have energy, and Einstein’s theory says that even pure energy has to behave in some ways like mass. Therefore light could be bend by the gravitation force of the sun.

Light from the background stars closely bypassing the sun on the way to the earth are being bend by the sun. The result is that the stars are seen in slightly different positions in the sky when the sun is in front of them, compared to their positions when the sun is elsewhere.

Even after Presenting General Theory in 1916 , ground work Of Theory was still missing and scientific community was not able to accept theory completely . for Proving his General theory of Relativity , Einstein has to wait for 4 Solar Eclipses from 1916 to 1919 and has to wait for The final eclipse of May 29, 1919 which confirmed Einstein’s theory that the light could be bend by the gravitational force of the sun.

An English expedition in the area of the eclipse have actually measured the deflection of starlight from the sun. The data of the expedition was presented to a special joint meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society and the Royal Society of London on November 6, 1919 , at the time it was Saturn Antardasha( Process of Working on Old trends and Traditions and giving it to new shape) was running.

The eminent Professor J.J. Thomson, discoverer of the electron and Chair of the meeting, was convinced: “This is the most important result obtained in connection with the theory of gravitation since Newton’s day.”

After long battle of 7 years via his Solar Eclipse formula He got Noble Price in 1921 and presented in 1922 during Moon Mahadasha not for his work for brilliant work on General Theory of Relativity but for the photoelectric effect which he formulated quiet earlier in research paper during 1905 in Venus Mahadasha( lord of 5th house in 10th house).

He even Donated his sum of Price to His Separated Wife as what he promised to his wife for children well being.

Einstein formulated most of His research work of Cosmos and Creation in Sun Mahadasha from 1916 to 1921.

He Presented his most of Theoretical Researches in Venus Mahadasha – dasha of 5th and 12th lord in 10th house and in AD period Rahu (9th lord in 8th – Deep Research from 1903 to 1906) , Jupiter (10th lord in 9th – Higher Knowledge and Search of Cosmos – 1906 to 1908 ), Saturn(9th lord in 10th – Revolutionizing the searches, old bottle – new Shape in 1908 to 1912) ,Mercury(1st and 4th lord in 10th – Applying , presenting , writing journals and testing process – 1912 to 1914 ) and Ketu( 6th lord in 2nd house – fighting for honor and brilliance – 1914 to 1916) .

But he got Recognition in 1922 during End of Sun Mahadasha and Venus AD and in Moon MD Starting Phase after winning many legal battles of proving his Scientific theories , 6th lord in 8th house with Rahu – always in controversies , Debilitated Moon in 6th house.

In 1905 During Venus Mahadasha ( lord of 5th and 12th house in 10th house) and Antardasha of Jupiter/Rahu( Lagna Nakashtra lord /9th lord Rahu in 8th , 9th and 10th lord Jupiter in 9th house ) Einstein contributed three papers to Annalen der Physik (Annals of Physics) based on Space and time formula , Each of them became the basis of a new branch of physics.

Einstein treated matter and energy as exchangeable. Albert Einstein became famous for the theory of relativity, which laid the basis for the release of atomic energy.

In 1905 During Mid of Venus Mahadasha , Albert Einstein formulates Special Theory of Relativity.He established law of mass- energy equivalence and in 1907 in Jupiter Antardasha, he came up with the immortal e=mc2, better known as the Special Theory of Relativity, encapsulating energy and matter as aspects of a single phenomenon.

In 1908 during Saturn Antardasha , while still at the patent office, he began work on his major achievement, the general theory of relativity, which he officially proposed in 1916 in Sun Mahadasha.

The theories were the greatest challenge to Newtonian mechanics that the modern world had ever known was a fact for Cosmos and Universe creation.

Einstein calculates how the movement of molecules in a liquid can cause the Brownian motion.

Using Max Planck’s quantum Theory he formulated the photon theory of light and explains the photoelectric effect in 1905 During Venus Mahadasha and Rahu Antardasha.

In 1916 proposes general theory of relativity-still central to our understanding of the universe. Einstein changed the political balance of power in the twentieth century, through his scientific foundation in the development of atomic energy.

Over the next decade During Moon Mahadasha Period , Einstein took visiting professorships in England and America and gave many speeches.

But his Life Become Miserable after the dasha commenced of Mars (lord of 11th and 6th lord in 8th house with Rahu , owner of two Malefic Houses with Malefic Rahu ) after 1932 , He refused to live in Hitler’s Reich, He was expelled from the Academy of Science in Germany , his citizen ship was Revoked and in 1932-33 he moved permanently to U.S.A to Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study, where he sponsored a steady stream of refugees from Nazism. He became a U.S. citizen in 1936.

During Rahu Mahadasha Einstein went on thinking , speculating all theory in one form and looked for common solution based on all his theories , unity in all nature, Rahu Even gave him Success but in 8th house it was Destructive idea , which was the result of Manhattan project based on Atomic Theory of Einstein , but later he realized He did a major mistake in his life by formulating this theory and suggesting US to Make Atomic Bomb against Nazis.

Conclusion: So this is all about the Scientific breakthrough about his research in theoretical physics and we tried to understand his major scientific changes in his profession.

The Essence of Prashna Techniques

The essence of Prashna Techniques

JyotishTeachings.com
copyright © 2015 Chandrashekhar Sharma

In Vedic astrology, there are many techniques of horary astrology which go under the generic name of Prashna. These range from “Daivagya Vallabha” of Varāha Mihira, to Kerala Ramal Prashna and encompasses in its fold, other systems like “Prashna Mārg” which derives some principles from Brihajjataka to varied forms of “nimitta” (incidents) and “shakuna” (omens) mentioned in Brihat Samhita, on to the Prashna Tājik system of astrology, which elaborates on the “Varshaphala” or annual horoscopy. Then there is the K.P. system of horary astrology that is also in vogue in modern times which is a combination of Sage Satyāchārya principles and Jātaka (natal), or Horā system of natal astrology with lordships of dashās (called subs) being allotted in proportion to their Vimshottari dashā periods.

An astrologer is justifiable confused as to which of this he should use should he need to answer a question when the birth details of the Jātaka are not available. He finds different people swearing by different systems as the final word in astrology and his confusion is compounded. I do not myself claim to be the final authority on Prashna, nor do I regularly predict on the basis of Prashna, though sometimes I do find it very useful, especially when the question is such that its answer using regular methods is difficult though not impossible to obtain and that too in a short time.
I am putting below the concept of Prashna astrology and shall try to spell out the logic, where I have been able to fathom the same for benefit of young astrologers who might want to delve deeper in to the science of Prashna. Let me reiterate here that I sometimes use one or the other system for Prashna and am not partial to one or other of them. I try to restrict myself to either of the Chart of the moment analyzed in a fashion similar to natal chart as indicated by Varāha Mihira, or Tājik system of a modified form and must confess that sometimes I do get mindboggling results. I also sometimes use nimitta system if some remarkable event happens at the time the question is asked.

The entire system of Prashna cannot be explained in one article, and there are many standard books available on the subject these are: “Daivagya Vallabha”, Prashna Tantra (English translation of chapter on Prashna from Tājik, by B V Raman) or “Tājik Neelkanthi”, “Prashna Mārg”, “Narapati Jay Charchā”, “Hāyana Ratna”, “Kerala Ramala Paddhati”, “Krishnamurthy Paddhati” primers, “Brihat Samhitā” and so on, which elaborate at length on the various systems and those desirous of delving deeper in the subject may like to read these and understand the subject in depth.
The basic concept behind Prashna is that formation of a Prashna (question) in the mind is akin to pregnancy, the question itself being similar to baby in womb, and asking of the question is similar to birth of the query. Therefore the chart cast at the time of asking of the question can be analyzed in a fashion similar to analysis of a natal chart to indicate the results of the question. This is generally followed in Daivagya Vallabha type of analysis of Prashna chart, where the Prashna chart (chart cast when a Prashna is asked) is analyzed in a manner similar to analysis of a natal chart.

Same principle can also be applied to the Tājik system of analysis. However some learned think that the chart be cast when the astrologer thinks about giving out the prediction for the question asked and the reason is the below shloka appearing in “Tājik Neelkanthi”:

ऋजुरयमनृजुर्वाऽयं प्रष्टव पूर्ं परीक्ष्य लग्नबलवत्।
गणकेन फलं र्वच्यं दैर्ं तच्चित्तगं स्फुरच्चत॥१॥

ṛjurayamanṛjurvā’yaṁ praṣṭā pūrvaṁ parīkṣya lagnabalāt |
gaṇakena phalaṁ vācyaṁ daivaṁ taccittagaṁ sphurati ||1||

 

Meaning: The astrologer should first assess if the querent is honest or deceptive from the strength of the Lagna (ascendant) because the prediction that is to be given, arises in his mind.

The argument is that since the results arise in the mind of the astrologer, only when he wants to answer the question should the chart be cast and that might be applicable in the modern times when the query could be put through e-mail or on phone. There is only one small issue here and that is how will he analyze strength of the Lagna (Ascendant), without casting a chart at the moment of hearing of the Prashna? An astrologer may choose any of the methods that he thinks is right. I have seen either of the two methods (ie Daivagya Vallabha or Tājik) give somewhat fairly accurate results, when the astrologer is truly desirous of helping the querent in distress.

There is some difference in the two methods in analysis of the Prashna chart, as Daivagya Vallabha advises to look at the nimitta and shakuna observed at the time of query, as also the first letter of the question asked by the querent, and decide whether the result of the Prashna will be auspicious or inauspicious. Tājik systems opines that one should first find out if the querent is sincere in his query or is a deceptive person who is asking the question to mock the astrologer or test his knowledge and answer the query only if the querent is sincere. Those desirous of understanding the nimitta, shakuna and assessment from 1st letter of query can read about this in depth from Brihat Samhitā, Prashna Mārg, Kerala Ramal Paddhati etc.

If we look at the Tajik system, it is advised to first verify the sincerity of the querent through analysis of the Ascendant and certain methodology is prescribed. So, how is it to be understood whether the querent is honest in query, or deceptive, from lagna?

If Moon occupies the lagna as Saturn occupies any of the Kendras (squares) while Mercury is combust and Moon occupying the ascendant is aspected by Mars or Mercury with even aspect (7th house aspect). Mercury is combust in proximity of Sun so both Moon and Lagna will be under aspect of malefic whether Mars or Mercury aspect the Lagna with 7th house aspect and Saturn occupying the Kendra will be Paraspara (mutual) karaka to them thus making the Lagna extremely weak and so the question might not be sincerely put, or put to test the astrologer, then it should not be answered. Again if any of the Jupiter or Mercury aspecting the 7th lord with inimical aspect (ie square) would mean the querent is not sincere. If Lagna is occupied by a malefic the query should be thought to be put to test the astrologer.

My personal opinion is that, though indicative of intent of the querent, it can also be indicative of the results obtainable by the querent depending on placement of other planets. We can see that even the indications where answers should not be given are later on contradicted by combinations that indicate results of malefics placed in the lagna. Now if due to malefic in lagna one is not to answer the query, why should later on the Tājik texts talk of results obtained by the querent when malefic is placed in lagna? I think the astrologer should answer the query to the best of ability, if he thinks that it should be answered as the prediction is said to arise in the mind of the astrologer and which he is said to give out, as indicated in the shloka from “Tājik Neelkanthi”, quoted earlier.

Let us now understand some of the principles used in both the systems of Prashna.

1) The lagna (ascendant) is assumed to be the querent or the person on whose behalf the question is being asked.
2) Rāshi rising by head in lagna are indicative of good results. Human rāshis in lagna also give good results, if aspected by benefics.
3) If the rising sign is a Chara (cardinal) sign the situation about which question is asked will change.
4) If the rising sign is a Sthira (fixed) sign, the situation queried about will not change.
5) If the sign rising is a Dwisvabhāva (dual) sign, the situation will change but with some difficulty.
6) If the Lord of the lagna and that bhāva about which the question is asked (known as Kāryesha) are aspecting own bhāvas, each other’s bhāvas or each other good result is assured.
7) If both lagna and Moon receive aspect of benefics the results are good.

Now the difference is in the matter of aspects. In the Daivagya Vallabha system, aspects are in accordance with the regular Vedic aspects and results are primarily based on the nature of the planets.

However in Tajik system of astrology, unlike Vedic astrology, there are no special aspects of Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. All planets aspect the 3rd, 11th, 5th, and the 9th bhāvas from themselves. These aspects are treated as benefic aspects, while their square aspects (1st 4th, 7th, and 10th) are treated as inimical aspects. Within the benefic aspects, the 3rd and 11th are treated as indirect friendly (benefic) aspects while the 5th and 9th are direct friendly (benefic) aspects. Amongst the inimical aspects the 1st and the 7th house aspects are directly inimical and the 4th as well as 10th house aspects are indirectly inimical.

The bhāvas indicate mostly the same things in both the systems and are more or less identical with the standard Vedic astrology. In some cases they might appear different but are only extended logic of the bhāvas and nothing more. We shall see some of the bhāvas related with the questions that might be asked, to understand this.

 

The analysis of the Horary chart on the basis of Daivagya Vallabha principles being similar to the natal horoscopy, we shall now try to understand how it is done in Tajik, albeit in brief.

An important factor considered in Tajik, besides the way aspects are understood, is that of orb of influence of planets and whether the aspect is applying or separating. In Tajik it is assumed that a planet can influence another planet only within certain degrees, this phenomenon is called “DeeptāMsha”, or orb of influence.

If a planet that is slow mover is in higher degrees and the one that is faster in lesser degrees, and also has an aspect on the slower planet, the results are presumed to be good if they are also within their orb of influence. Such an aspect is called “Itthshāla” or “Muthashila”, while if the position is reversed it becomes a separating aspect and is called Isārapha or Musaripha and its results are negative.

The orbs of influence (degrees from the planet on both sides that its influence is felt) are given below.

I am sure everyone who is an astrologer knows the relative speeds of planets, yet for record let us understand that their speeds are in the ascending order of Moon-Mercury-Venus-Sun-Mars-Jupiter-Saturn.

Again one has to understand that even if the fast mover planet is in earlier rāshi while the slow mover planet is in next rāshi, but within the DeeptāMsha, Itthshāla is said to take place as the fast mover is going to meet the slow mover soon so applying aspect is occurring. Now if such planets are within a degree of each other, the full or Poorna (full) Itthshāla is said to occur which promises almost immediate good results of the question asked. If the situation is reverse that is the fast mover is ahead and slow mover is behind, Musaripha yoga is said to take place which indicates negative results.

An example of both the yogas is given in the charts below. First chart indicates the Itthshāla across rāshis between Moon and Mercury and also Poorna Itthshāla between Venus and Mars when in aspect and within the orb of influence:

 

Moon 26 degrees Capricorn    Mercury 2 degrees Aquarius
Venus 15 degrees Aquarius     Mars 15 degrees 12 minutes Aries

Moon at 26 degrees in Capricorn, though not aspecting Mercury in Aquarius which is slower than Moon, as Mercury is 6 degrees ahead of Moon, thus within the orb of influence of Moon, therefore there is Itthshāla between Moon and Mercury. Again Venus has 3rd house aspect on Mars and is 12 minutes behind Mars who is slower mover than Venus who is relatively faster mover thus being in both aspect and within one degree so not only is this Itthshāla but Poorna Itthshāla.

Now we shall look at Isārapha/Musaripha yogas in the next chart. Here we can see that Moon a fast moving planet is within 3 degrees of Mercury in the same bhāva but it has more degrees (29) than Mercury (26), thus Mercury will never catch up with Moon and thus this is an Isārapha/ Musaripha yoga. Similarly Mars in 15 degrees, though aspecting Venus (15 degrees 12 minutes), Mars being a slow mover, though within 12 minutes of Venus the fast mover, the aspect being separating aspect, yoga thus caused will qualify to become Isārapha/ Musaripha yoga.
Essence of Prashna Techniques

Moon 29 degrees Capricorn     Mercury 26 degrees Capricorn
Venus 15 degrees 12 minutes    Aquarius Mars 15 degrees Libra

We must remember that though in Tajik system of astrology, there are 16 different yogas, in Prashna part of Tajik not all are used. Itthshāla/ Muthashila, Isārapha/Musaripha and Kambool (also sometimes called Kabool) yogas (formed with Moon) are the yogas that are predominantly used in Tajik system of Prashna.

Kambool yoga is formed when the Lord of the lagna and Lord of the bhāva about which query is made (called Kāryesha) are in Itthshāla yoga and Moon also is in Itthshāla with one of them. Depending on whether the planets involved in Kambool with Moon, and Moon itself, are in exaltation it is called Uttam Kambool and so on, till Moon not being strong the yoga is called ordinary Kambool. It is obvious that if Moon is in Itthshāla with both Lagnesh and Kāryesha and in strength it will be the most powerful of the Kambool yogas. Results of this yoga are good. An example of Kambool/ Kabool yoga is given below.

Here we have to understand that in Tajik, 9th bhāva is primarily related to travels, dug water wells, pilgrimages, temples and religion etc. while 10th with work of father.

In the next example, the question being about travel or pilgrimage, the planets involved will be Venus as Lagna lord and Mercury as lord of the 9th. They do have aspect between them and Mercury being in 14 degrees is behind of Venus in 18 degrees. Moon with 10 degrees is in aspect with both of them and within DeeptāMsha and therefore this comes under the definition of Kambool yoga and the query will fructify.

 

Moon 10 degrees Cancer  Venus 18 degrees Cancer
Mercury 14 degrees Aries

Here what is more important is Moon having Itthshala with at least one of the planets who are having Itthshala between them to grant strength to the yoga. This also indicates the importance of Moon in Tajik system of Prashna, and Prashna system in general. As astrologers get more interested in learning about this system of astrology they will find many yogas that indicate good results if both Lagna and Moon are gaining strength, and that is natural as the query itself arises in mind and Moon is also the child (relevant in balariishta), so early resolution of query will naturally be influenced by its strength.

Next to be understood is the concept of the planets concerned not being in direct aspect but another planet having aspect with both, placed between the two, and being within DeeptāMsha of both the planets and thus being capable of transferring the influence (called Tej) of one planet to another. In such a case also, the results are realized but through agency of someone representing the planet which transfers the influence. There are two types of such yogas called Nakta and Yamayā. In the former the planet between the two is a planet that is faster than the two, while in the later it is slow mover than the two unaspecting planets. An example of Nakta yoga is given below.

Moon 8 degrees Sagittarius   Jupiter 12 degrees Pisces
Mercury 10 degrees Leo

Here, let us assume the question is about marriage of the querist. The querist as we know is represented by Lagna and the Lagna lord Mercury a fast mover is in 10 degrees, while the would be spouse will be represented by the 7th bhāva whose lord is Jupiter, a slower moving planet in 12 degrees, so in right degrees for an Itthshāla, however there is no aspect between them. However Moon who is faster than both the planets and in lesser degrees that both of them is between the two and aspects Mercury by 9th house aspect and simultaneously Jupiter by square aspect. He is also within DeeptāMsha of both of them. Now here comes the concept of transference of power or energy/ Tej. Here Moon in 8 degrees takes the energy of Mercury (another relatively faster planet) and passes it on to Jupiter, the slowest amongst the three planets, thus giving rise to Nakta yoga. This will therefore indicate that the object of the query shall be achieved through agency of a third person. Moon being karaka for mother and a female planet, gain of spouse will be through agency of mother or some female.

Let us now understand how the Yamayā yoga operates. This yoga, as we have already learnt, has its basis on a slower moving planet than those not aspecting each other, coming between them and aspecting both being within the DeeptāMsha of both, thus being able to transfer the Tej (energy/influence) from the faster moving (amongst the two non aspecting planets) to the slower planet, thus leading to achievement of the object of query. We shall see how this occurs in the example chart below.

Moon 6 degrees Virgo  Jupiter 10 degrees Cancer
Venus 16 degrees Aries

Here the question being of gaining kingdom or position of influence or promotion at work, the Lagna lord Venus (Lagnesh) and the 10th lord Moon (Kāryesha as the question is about recognition (Man) or Kingdom (Rajya)), both of which are represented by the 10th bhava, are the planets that should ideally be aspecting each other, for enough strength in the yoga to grant the desired object. However though Moon with 6 degrees and Venus with 16 degrees are within deeptamsha (orb of influence) they do not aspect each other. However we can see that Jupiter who is with 10 degrees and slower than both is aspecting both the planets (by 10th and 3rd aspect respectively) and being between the two can get the Tej from Moon, who is behind him and pass it on to Venus whom he aspects and who is ahead of him, thus indicating fructification of the query. We can see here that Jupiter only operates as the transfer of influence of Moon to Venus. Now as Jupiter represents a minister or secretary, the object of desire will be realized through agency of minister to king or someone who is at senior position in management (in case of promotion) can be predicted.
The crux of analysis of Tajik method of Prashna is finding out the correct Bhava which is related to the query and after analyzing the Lagna, as indicated earlier. One should come to a conclusion only after finding out if the Lagna lord and Karyesh aspect own or each others house or each other and if they are in Itthashala or Musaripha. It is a good idea to find out the strength of yoga indicated by looking at whether the Lagna is Chara, Dwisvabhava or Sthira as then something happening, happening with some trouble and thing remaining static would be indicated. Sheershodaya lagna will add to the strength. And finally look for good yogas between the Lagnesha and Karyesh (the lord of the bhava relevant to query) and their fortification or otherwise by Nakta, Yamaya or Kamboo yogas, to finally arrive at the answer to the query.

Here we should also understand that though the square aspects are generally inimial, in case of benefics the malfeasance is fairly reduced and if simultneously yoga for fructification is there and should Lagnesha and Karyesh be aspecting each other, each other’s house or own house, the result will be good, even if on a bit reduced scale.

Astrologers have a different opinion on how to determine when the results will be obtained, in case of absence of Poorna Itthshala. The general guide line is that the difference in degrees between the Lagnesha and Karyesha in Itthashala will indicate the time. Some opine that in case of Chara rashis being involved in Lagna one should say the difference of amsha indicates days, Dwivabhava rashis shall indicate weeks and Sthira rashis indicates month. Some learned are of the opinion that the navamsha past (ie each rashi consists of 9 navamsa’s) in Prashna lagna are the best indication of when the object of the query will fructify and especially in case of question from a pregnant lady that does seem logical. However, all this should be applied with a sense of proportion, based on the type of query and not by rote.

There are many yogas and types of questions that can be answered using both the Daivagya Vallabha or the Tajik approach, but the most important thing is understanding of bhavas in depth and then the desire to answer the question through Prashna that will dictate the accuracy or otherwise of the prediction. I would urge the astrologers interested in learning this branch to read as much text on the subject as possible and try to understand the underlying principles before making a firm prediction only from Prashna. I generally base my predictions on natal chart, but resort to Prashna when the urge to look at Prashna gets hold of my mind on hearing some query and even after that I analyze the natal chart to be certain that answers of both converge before venturing out with the prediction. However, there are many who predict solely on the basis of Prashna and there is nothing wrong in that approach.

I would have liked to write more on the subject but then paucity of space and time both prohibit me from doing so and I trust the readers will understand this. If one really wants to write on Prashna at great depth, that would mean writing a separate book on this and that is not the mandate of this web site which is for those who already have some basic knowledge of astrology and want to know more on less commented and elaborated upon, aspects of Vedic astrology. So I close this article on Prashna here and hope this helps astrologers who read it.

Decoding Vipareeta Rāj Yoga

Vipareeta Rāj Yoga

The much talked about, and many a time much-misunderstood yoga in Vedic astrology is the Vipareeta Rāj Yoga. Let us first understand the meaning of Vipareeta, in the astrological context.

The word Vipareeta has many meanings in the Sanskrit language, and in astrological context, it would mean:

1) Inverse or reverse motion.
2) Being the reverse of anything, acting in a contrary manner, opposite, contrary to, in the matter of results.

Therefore any type of planetary combination that can give results that are contrary to expectation can fall under the definition of Vipareeta Yoga. Will it convert into a Vipareeta Rāj Yoga is something about which different Āchāryas (learned astrologers) have different opinions. It is only if we understand the underlying principles behind what is being stated by the sages, that we can apply the yogas to live charts and assess the probable results.

In case of the first meaning, Kālidāsa the author of “Uttara Kālāmrita” says:
२ ६

vakrī svoccabalaḥ savakrasahite madhyaṁ balaṁ tuṅgabhe
vakrī nīcabalaḥ svanīcabhavane vakrībalaṁ tuṅgajam |
uccasthena yuto’rdhavīryamiti cennīce tu śunyaṁ balaṁ
mitraiḥ pāpakhagaiḥ śubhai ripukhagairyukto’pi cārdhaṁ balaṁ ||

uttara kālāmṛta |2|6||

Meaning: A retrograde planet is equal in strength to an exalted planet. The planet conjunct a retrograde planet gets medium strength. A retrograde planet if also, simultaneously, in its rāshi of exaltation loses its strength (is weak as if in debility), while if in its rāshi of debility its strength is equal to being exalted. A planet conjunct an exalted planet gets half the strength (of exaltation) while if conjunct a planet in debility it loses all is strength (strength is zero).

Here, in the first part of the shloka, the learned Kālidāsa is using the Vipareeta principle for retrograde planets. He seems to suggest that since the retrograde planet is strong, being placed in its rāshi of exaltation, it should become stronger but the Vipareeta (opposite) results will ensue. Again, by same logic he says that a retrograde planet in its debility, where logically it should be weak, will gain strength due to Vipareeta principle.

The second meaning of Vipareeta is brought out, when the learned Kālidāsa says: ४ २२

randhreśo vyayaṣaṣṭhago ripupatau randhre vyaye vā sthite |
riḥpheśo’pi tathaiva randhraripubhe yasyāsti tasminvadet |

anyonyarkṣagatā nirīkṣaṇayutāścānyairayuktekṣitā jāto’sau nṛpati praśastavibhavo rājādhirājeśvaraḥ

||uttarakālāmṛta|22||

Meaning: If the lord of the 8th bhāva occupies the 12th or the 6th bhāva or should the 6th lord occupy the 8th or the 12th bhāva or should the 12th bhāva lord occupies the 8th or the 6th bhāva and should these lord be connected to each other by aspect, conjunction or exchange of house but be unaspected by other planets, the Jātaka becomes a very wealthy king of kings.

Here the Vipareeta yoga principle is applied in a different manner by the learned Kālidāsa. The basis of this yoga is two basic principles of astrology:

1) Any planet placed in the 6th, the 8th or the 12th bhāva loses its strength.
AND
2) The lords of the 6th, the 8th or the 12th bhāva harm/weaken the bhāva occupied.

Thus logically there should be an extreme loss of strength for the lords of the 6th, the 8th or the 12th bhāvas and harm to the 6th, the 8th, or the 12th bhāva when they occupy bhāva other than their own bhāva. This would mean that problems like disease, litigations, health issues or high expenditure etcetera that trouble the Jātaka should become more severe. However learned Kālidāsa opines that these results are reversed and cause the Jātaka to become a king, especially if these lords are also connected to each other, by aspect or exchange and themselves be unaspected by other planets.

Somewhat similar principle for planets in debility is enunciated by Sage Pārāshara in the 39th chapter of his astrological magnum opus “Pārāshari”, popularly known as “Brihat Pārāshara Horāshāstra”, is now being given in the shloka below:

ṣaṣṭhe’ṣṭame tṛtīye vā sva svanīcagatā grahāḥ |
lagnaṁ paśyet svabhoccastho lagnapo rājyayogadaḥ ||

39|19pārāśarī||

Meaning: When planets in debility occupy the 6th, the 8th, the 2nd or the 3rd bhāva while the lagna lord occupies its rāshi of exaltation or own rāshi and aspects the lagna, such yoga is capable of bestowing kingdom upon the Jātaka.
Sage Pārāshara gives us a different application of the Vipareeta principle when he tells that planets in debility placed in dusthāna (negative houses) give rise to Rāj yoga, with a rider that the lord of the ascendant should simultaneously aspect the ascendant. So here two different set of principles are being used.

First is the Vipareeta principle in operation:

1) It is said that planets in debility harm the indications of the houses occupied, generally giving negative results.
2) Similar are the results when planets occupy the 6th and 8th bhāvas as the planets become weak due to their placement in these most malefic of trika bhāvas, and in turn render the bhāvas owned by the planets in those bhāvas, weak.
3) The bhāvas 3rd and 2nd, when occupied by planets in debility, should, normally, reduce valour and accumulated wealth.
However due to the Vipareeta (contrary) principle, Sage Pārāshara opines these planets shall not give negative results, but on the contrary, give good results.

The second principle used is of a bhāva lord aspecting own bhāva strengthening the bhāva:

1) Here we can observe that it is the lagna lord in strength, by virtue of occupying own or exaltation rāshi, which aspects lagna making it strong.
2) The lagna bhāva, also being representative of Ātmabala, thus fortified on getting aspected by own lord gives confidence in own capability to the Jātaka.

Thus these two principles, operating in tandem, resulting in such combination of planets and bhāvas (yoga) being capable of granting a kingdom to the Jātaka.

The sage makes the principle of very weak lords of dusthāna giving good results when occupying certain bhāvas; amply clear in the next shloka that reads:

ṣaṣṭhā’ṣṭamavyayādhīśā nīcasthā ripubhe‘stagāḥ |
svoccasvabhagalagneśo lagnaṁ paśyaṁśca rājyadaḥ ||

39|20pārāśarī ||

Meaning: If lord of the lagna in own or exaltation rāshi aspects the lagna while the lord of 6th, the 8th or the 12th bhāva are placed in their rāshi of debility or enemy, or are combust the yoga grants kingdom to the Jātaka.

Again, Sage Pārāshara tells that if the lords of 6th, the 8th or the 12th are placed in their rāshi of debility, enemy or if they are combust, they confer a kingdom on the Jātaka. Here the principle is more clear as the lords of 6th, 8th or 12th would be either placed in good bhāvas or in another trika bhāva, or be otherwise very weak. This weakness will in turn reverse the ill effects of the trika bhāva lord’s occupation of good bhāvas.

The yoga is further fortified by lagna lord himself being strong and aspecting lagna resulting in the grant of the kingdom, to the Jātaka.

dusthāneśo’pi nīcastho yadi lagnaṁ prapaśyati |
tadā’pi rājyayogaḥ syāditi jñeyaṁ dvijottama ||

39|28pārāśarī||

Meaning: Oh great amongst Brahmins know that a planet in debility, even if it be a lord of dusthāna (3, 6, 8, 11, 12th), aspecting the ascendant results in a Rāj yoga.

We find Sage Pārāshara further elaborating the principle of a lord of dusthāna in debility, placed in an auspicious bhāva, causing contrary auspicious results instead of harming the bhāva occupied, by reiterating that even a lord of trika bhāva aspecting the Lagna, when in debility, shall grant kingdom to the Jātaka.

Now let us see what the venerated Satyāchārya, who is acknowledged as the final arbiter of astrological principle by even Āchārya Varāha Mihira in his “Brihat Jātaka”, tells about results given by the trika (6th, 8th and 12th) bhāvas:

॥ व्ययाष्टषष्ठभावेषु वैपरीत्यमाह सत्याचायय॥
|| vyayāṣṭaṣaṣṭhabhāveṣu vaiparītyamāha satyācārya ||

Meaning: Sage Satyāchārya told about contrary results of the 12th, 6th and 8th bhāvas, in this manner:

सौम्ााः पुष्ष्टिं पापााः ष्वपयययिं सिंष्ितााः ग्रहााः कुयुयाः।
मूत्यायष्िषु ष्िधिान्त्याष्रषु भावेषूत्क्रमात्फलिं िद्युष्रष्त॥३॥

saumyāḥ puṣṭiṁ pāpāḥ viparyayaṁ saṁśritāḥ grahāḥ kuryuḥ|

mūrtyādiṣu nidhanāntyāriṣu bhāveṣūtkramātphalaṁ dadyuriti||3||

Meaning: Benefic planets strengthen the bhāvas occupied whereas the malefic planets harm the bhāvas occupied in case of lagna and other bhāvas. However in case of planets occupying the 8th, the 12th and the 6th bhāvas contrary results are obtained.

Here Sage Satyāchārya is making the basic principle behind why planets in debility can give good results in trika bhāvas absolutely clear, by stating that malefic planets occupying the trika bhāvas shall give contrary results. This means auspicious results shall ensue.

Having so far understood the support in the astrological classics to Vipareeta principles, let us now once again try to understand the reasons for the results of these yogas. Let us also try to understand the correct interpretation of the liberally used phrase “Vipareeta Rāj Yoga”, used to describe such yogas and their variations.

When the word Rāj yoga occurs in astrological texts, the tendency of astrologers is always to assume someone being extremely wealthy, as “Rājā” does mean a king. However, we must also understand that being a king is not only about wealth. Primarily it is about being accepted as being a leader by a group of people and voluntarily being given authority to adjudicate over matters of that group, including, but not only, imposing of taxes to sustain the system, administration and so on. So, in short, a Rāj yoga should be understood to be a yoga indicative of the Jātaka rising in life to a stage of financial level, or wielding power over a group of people, much above what was expected on account the financial or another status of his family, at the time of his birth.
In case of Vipareeta Rāj yoga it is observed that many a time, the Jātaka is propelled to a higher level of recognition either unexpectedly, or for some inexplicable reason. Sometimes,

the person who was in line to get that recognition does not get it due to sudden setbacks like loss of reputation, health issues, death etc., and the Jātaka gets the recognition, in his stead. It is also possible that he changes his career unexpectedly which contributes to his rise.

We must also remember that the extent of rising will also be influenced by other strengths of the chart of the Jātaka. It may not be out of place to mention here that “Chandrakalā-Nādi” aka “Deva-Keralam” tells that in Kaliyuga (present times) in a chart with 3 or 4 planets in exaltation, it is desirable if there is also a planet in debility for the full good results attributed to the exalted planets to come through. I would also like to bring it to the notice of the learned astrologers the basic principle that if a planet is in debility in navāmsha, the results of its debility only will obtain, even if it is in exaltation in the rāshi chart. Similarly, a planet in exaltation in navāmsha shall give results of exaltation even when placed in debility in the rāshi chart.

Having seen the different ways Vipareeta yoga can operate, an inquiring mind must ask if results of all of them can be similar and can all of them give extremely positive good results? In my opinion, the placement of one trika lord in another trika bhāva, while being of a milder form of beneficial yoga may not qualify as a powerful Rāj yoga by itself. The final results will have much to do with the bhāva owned by that planet and the bhāva occupied by it, as also other strength of the chart, especially the lagna. An example would be when 6th lord occupies the 8th bhāva. While this placement, of one trika lord in another trika bhāva, can give good financial prosperity to the Jātaka, it could also indicate some acute health issue becoming chronic through neglect on the part of Jātaka. In respect of planets in debility acting as exalted, if retrograde, this seems to be right on account of the planet at such time being away from Sun and the “vakra bala” (strength of retrogression) is said to be almost equal to that of a planet in exaltation.

However, I am not very convinced if an exalted planet in retrogression will give results of being in debility. I would think it will become extremely powerful and, if a malefic, cause much harm while if a benefic give good results. The exception here is Saturn, who is said to give results that are Vipareeta (reverse) to those given by malefic planets. Even here, while fortifying the bhāva occupied, Saturn is more than likely to cause severe harm to the bhāvas aspected.

So does this mean the Vipareeta principle is wrong? No, this in my opinion means one has to apply it with prudence and the most powerful Vipareeta yoga which can rightly be called a Vipareeta Rāj yoga will occur and show its results in real life, when lord of a trika sthāna (bhāva) will occupy an auspicious bhāva in debility/being rendered weak (generally by conjunction with a node) or when a debilitated/ weakened lord of an auspicious bhāva shall occupy any one of the trika sthānas. The effect would be heightened when the auspicious bhāva involved are the trines, squares and the 2nd or 3rd bhāvas and their lords.

Having thus understood the underlying principles of the Vipareeta Rāj yoga, let us see the charts of some well-known personalities in whose charts it occurs, and whose charts and lives are out there on the net for anyone to verify.

As befits our subject of astrology, let us begin with the horoscope of William John Warner AKA Count Louis Hamon or Cheiro.

He was known for his mind-boggling palmistry predictions and has also written books on palmistry, numerology and astrology. Below is the chart.

It can be seen that the lord of the 6th bhāva (a trika bhāva), in debility is placed in the 9th bhāva an auspicious bhāva which is a trine, resulting in a powerful Vipareeta Rāj yoga.

I am sure that most of the astrologers, both budding and veterans would have studied a bit of palmistry, or more when young if not for knowledge, then at least to impress their friends and would instantly connect Cheiro with palmistry.

Cheiro is said to have been born in an impoverished family in Dublin, Ireland and not have received much parental affection. There is a story that he was kidnapped by Gypsies when young, though it is possible he fled home as a stowaway on some ship as, he has himself said that he worked on a Bombay port in India where he met his Indian guru, who is said to have taught him astrology, palmistry and numerology. He claimed he had access to ancient Indian books written in gold and learnt much of the art of prediction from it.

It appears that the powerful Vipareeta Rāj yoga in his chart which rises due to the 6th lord in debility occupying the 9th bhava, and another Vipareeta Rāj yoga caused by lord of the 10th, Sun in 12th bhava in debility, made him rise from being a noniety to the most famous Palmist in the western world who had a wide following of famous European and American clients during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He read palms and told the fortunes of famous celebrities like Mark Twain, W. T. Stead, Sarah Bernhardt, Mata Hari, Oscar Wilde, Grover Cleveland, Thomas Edison, the Prince of Wales, General Kitchener, William Ewart Gladstone, and Joseph Chamberlain. Even if he never became a king he did assume the name and title Count Lois Hamon.

Next chart to draw our interest must be that of “Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz”, known to most part of the world as Fidel Castro the Prime Minister and then President (virtual) dictator of Cuba who has ruled over the country since, and is still its de-facto head.

Fidel Castro was an illegitimate 3rd child of Angel Castro and his servant “Lina Ruiz”. His father married “Lina” only after birth of her 7th child, after divorcing his wife Maria. Thus it is apparent that none could have even dreamt that he would one day become the dictator of Cuba, who could not be dislodged even by the mighty U.S.A. and shall serve his country in that capacity till he decided to step down due to ill health and handed over reigns to his brother Raul Castro.

We can see, here, that the lord of the 8th bhāva Jupiter is in debility and occupies the auspicious 9th bhāva, giving rise to a powerful Vipareeta Rāj yoga which gets fortified as Jupiter aspects both the Lagna and the Lagna lord giving immense strength to the lagna of Jātaka (Castro), and granting him kingdom of Cuba. His journey to becoming the dictator of Cuba makes interesting reading, and does seem to support my theory of unexpected developments propelling the Jātaka of Vipareeta Rāj yoga, to a position of eminence.

On 3/10/1952, Batista seized power in Cuba when Castro formed an insurrection group. He led a small group in a revolution on 7/26/1953. Arrested, he was found guilty and jailed. While in prison, he read and studied history, philosophy and politics up to his release on 5/15/1955. On 7/07/1955, Castro left Cuba for Mexico City, where he met “Che Guevara”.

On 12/05/1956 they began the revolutionary invasion. After defeat, he fled on 12/31/1957. It is interesting that his Jupiter Mahādashā (period) began in 1955, when he had to flee Cuba which led to his meeting with “Che Guevara” and that he was able to overthrow Batista regime in 1959, becoming Prime minister the when his Jupiter-Saturn-Mars-Ketu-Jupiter period on 16th of February 1959

From those who were kings or were almost like kings in their own field of expertise, we shall move to the field of acting to round up charts illustrating the powerful Vipareeta yoga. This later chart will indicate the difference in strength of the Vipareeta Rāj Yoga when the lagna does not get further fortified (a bhāva gets fortified when aspected by own lord, Jupiter or Mercury).

Let us now see the chart of “George Clooney”, the heartthrob of many young girls, especially in the western part of the world and who was voted the sexiest man alive in a survey conducted by People magazine. I am including this chart for one dear student of mine who is enamoured of George Clooney and also since it does help illustrate the difference in degrees in various Vipareeta Rāj Yogas, in the intensity of their results.

 


We observe in this chart that lord of auspicious kendra (10th bhāva) and the 3rd bhāva, is placed in its rāshi of debility in the 6th bhāva ( a trika bhāva), giving rise to a Vipareeta Rāj Yoga, though the lagna or lagna lord does not receive aspect of its lord, Jupiter or Mercury, thus denying actual kingdom. Add to this the 2nd lord placed in the 12th bhāva in debility giving further strength to Vipareeta Rāj yoga. He also has two planets in exaltation, Sun and Venus which also helps in strengthening the chart. George, though son of a TV personality, only got a chance to work in a small role in a film on horse racing that his uncle wanted to make, though the film never made it to the screen. He took off for Hollywood with only a paltry sum in pocket to stay with his aunt who gave him lodging and job as chauffer. Later he worked as construction worker and worked in some commercials. He began getting bit parts and was part of 15 failed TV pilots. It is interesting that he was voted the sexiest man alive in 1997 when he was running Rāhu-Mars period. Later becoming extremely successful, he went on to win Academy award in 2006.

I trust these charts will help the learned astrologers to understand the finer difference between the Vipareeta Rāj yoga and Vipareeta Yoga. Though the difference is fine we can see that the results, differ in their scale and there is certainly much importance needs to be given when the lagna also gets strength along with a strong Vipareeta Rāj yoga. It is well to remember that the lagna will gain strength when aspected by its lord, Jupiter or Mercury. A strong lagna lord shall also contribute to the strength of the lagna.
