There is a huge debate always going on in this scientific and non-scientific fraternity regarding our Vedic culture, rituals, and Shastras like Jyotish and other such micro spiritual sciences. The basic thing is non-believers are strongly in belief that what we see is true rest is false.
My question to them there are immense galaxies, stars, sun, and multiple universes exist in this super-spiritual world do they have seen by their own eyes or have they visited them or landed them ?? But still it is existing, do we need any proof? When things are present they are it doesn’t require any certification from any authorities.
As per Bhagavatam, there are 14 lokas of Jeevas existing, life is still there does anyone has seen? But still lokas are there and we are part of it. We live in bhuvaloka and it has existed.
Does anyone knows where comes Atma or soul goes in or out from the body ?? But still, it is the process life is following it. We take birth and then rebirth happens does anyone has seen it but still, it is happening.
So my point is the spiritual reality of this world is too huge, vast one cannot prove it by their facts, logics and scientific views. These things will exist and are existing from millions of years of the life cycle they don’t need any proof. This world of almighty is so huge and big, it is impossible for a common human being to imagine and experience it by their naked eyes and micro brain.
Life is hidden and it will remain hidden. Working in this universe is beyond human calculation and logic. So before questioning it, one should know it’s base and base should be learned from the Shastras that are visualized by the rishis and sages by Thier immense Tapasya for the human well being. The same is the case with the Jyotish majority of the scientific world claimed it as pseudoscience but in reality, it is a divine and spiritual science which needs divine vision to decode and understand it. Those who believe in their naked eyes is difficult for them to understand it’s complexity and mathematical computation. We are tiny particles in front of these Shastras knowledge.
Science has certain limitations, the more you explore, the more you practice more you can able to learn and understand it so it is in learning state but this universe is already existing before human science.
Today’s youth and non believers world behaves like a tiny microorganism that stays in a half-cut apple who believes that this is his only world as he doesn’t know what is present in below the apple and what is present in above the apple but in true reality, there are multiple apples in a apple tree where numerous microorganism lives in many apples and in many trees no one knows each other’s that they exist and there are huge forest of apple trees which again exist and no one knows to each other but certainly means human thinking is limited to its imagination and logic but this spiritual world was existing from many of millions of years. Same way karma, reincarnation, rebirth and cycle of life is working in an invisible pattern you don’t need to prove it.
Surya Sankranti means entering of Sun from one sign to the another which signifies major changes in the course of the sun in the heaven for signifying major changes occurring in nature.
According to the Hindu Muhurata System, 16 ghatis or 6 hours 24 minutes before or after the Solar Ingress (Surya Sankranti) which falls on every month in different signs should be avoided for starting any new work, as in Hindu Panchanga system it is known for surya sankramana, When Sun god travels to different zodiac signs of the Brahmanda corresponding with different regions of the earth for changing seasons or welcoming new change in nature or bringing change in weather systems and also invoking new energies linked with the signsin the form of an electromagnetic impulses which directly hits the body.
Its the phase when solar energies are immensely powerful for bringing change in nature which are not harmonical for human (Body is not capable to adapt solar energies) well being or for beginning of any new works, as per Hindu Panchanga but it is considered as good for worshiping and doing certain spiritual and religious rituals especially worshiping of different shiva forms (Rudra; as Surya is karka of Aatma and the Pratayadi Devta of the Surya is Shiva. Surya gives vitality and strength to both the Soul and body and also works for purification of both) or one can do meditate with nature to get align with electromagnetic vibrations of the solar energies which we get from both the sun and the sign ( Sign is a combination of stars- source of energies). Solar ingress in zodiac sign marks for the beginning of the change in nature and few hours before and after are immensely powerful for mantra Jaap , Worshiping and certain spiritual rites as they do the work of purification of your Atma and Jeeva shudhi.
Sankranti falls on Monday or Sunday should be chosen for Jal Abhishek for Atma, Shareera and Mana shudhi to discharge your negative electrical charge or ions from the body. This is the reason why our Maharishis were so scientific and sync with nature for the formation of any new principals of Jyotish.
Impact of Sun Transit on Libra ( Tula Surya Sankranti ) on India and general mass.
With the ingress of Surya Sankranti on Tula Rashi, the winter season has triggered or initiated which indicates that the sun has moved toward the southern sphere of the earth which we in the Vedic period called as dakashinayan period of Surya or Sharad Sampat period. As this Surya Sankranti triggered on the conjunction of Vara of Thursday – Friday around midnight from 11 pm to 1 am in Chitra nakshatra it is called as Mandakini Sankranti , it will give medium results and there will be happiness around kingdom and people those are living in it ( people those are living in western states and the globe) . This Sankranti falls on the Chitra nakshatra so people who are living around Karnataka, Bangalore, western states of India, eastern states and those of northern states will experience rainfall and good weather. As sun has conjugated with mercury and Venus, Mars is falling in 12th from it and Jupiter is falling in 2nd it northern hemisphere and northern states of India will experience cold waves, early snowfall and rainfall and weather will be good from now onward and it will trigger early winter in northern hemisphere and there are many chances that northern states of India those are living close to hills and mountain will experience early snowfall . As this Surya Sankranti triggered in night time after the sunset it will be considered as good it will favour ruling nation and Kingdom, it will restrict all sort of anti-national activities and people those are doing activities against the nation will be punished or get sentenced. It will control all the anti-national social activities and many of those people will experience sentences soon. As this Sankranti ingressed on libra sign and rainfall, the storm has triggered in northern states there are many chances that north of India will experience excessive rainfall in the winter season, there will be chances of any incident with respect to fire, bomb blast and chances of loss on Monterey gains of people living in the north.
If we look out the panchang during Tula Sankranti balava karna was rising it indicates as slept Sankranti and it is considered as good for weather and vegetables, it will increase the production and trade of vegetables, fruits and paddy. All eatables natural products prices will get stable and will be easily available in the market.
Balava vehicle is lion, and it indicates revolt creating political leaders those who keep on opposing the ruling party policies and procedures, the direction is west and it impacts the younger teenage girls, will create hurdles in Students those are going in school and collages. As Surya transited in Dahan Nadi in Chitra nakshatra ruling lord is Mangal so the possibility of fire incident will be possible.
For general mass one should do meditation, worship lord Shiva Mrityunjaya form to get a blissful and happy life, as Surya Sankranti shows the period of transition and filtering the soul silence, meditation and worshipping is must for the whole day.
Effects of Gravitational and Magnetic field based on Vedas and Scriptures
Although Saturn is much larger than the Earth, its surface gravity is only a little more than the surface gravity on Earth. This is only because Saturn is made up of mostly gases part and is not solid like Earth.
Now the question is why Saturn has such massive gravity though it is made up of a gaseous structure? What contributes to all this Saturn gravity?. The element-wise core structure of Saturn is largely comprised of hydrogen and helium, which came together at the beginning of the Solar System, gathered by their mutual mass. It’s the same composition as Jupiter and the Sun have. These primordial elements were formed at the beginning of the Universe in the Big Bang if we see modern assessment but in Hindu cosmology, Saturn celestial structure and origin has a different story. This shows that the Same power which is present on Sun is also present in the rest of the planets too including Saturn. It’s the same force that keeps on pulling every planet to each other which the sun has.
What is that Power? Is it a Magnetic Shield or the magnetic force of attraction which we called gravity or something else? Let’s understand first, What is mentioned in the Scriptures about Gravity or force of attraction, that keeps on attracting every other planet in the solar system with fixed boundaries. Science has named this force of attraction -The Gravitational force of planets.
What is Gravitational Force of Planets
“Vaishesika Sutra” discusses the role of Gravity Deeply for every object present in this solar system or in the celestial sphere that can help us in understanding how planets affect us either by aspect or by stronger magnetic attraction, everything is accountable in understanding that gravitational force:
The same thing has been explained by Bhaskaracharya on Surya Siddhanta around 400 AD;
“Vaishesika Sutra” describes that in the absence of conjunction (In an action) falling results due to Gravity.
In the absence of conjunction (Gurutvat) (is a process, defines the action or an instance of two or more events or things occurring at the same point in time or space.) falling results from Gravity. This means something that makes progress, movement, or achieving something difficult or impossible is the process of Impediment responsible for Gurutvat. Thus it clearly recognizes objects fall downward due to Gravity.
Sutra 5.1.8States that due to the absence of a particular molecular motion there arises no upward or side-ward motion in any object causes to fall down.
Why does an object throw in the air fall after some time?
Then Vaishesika Sutra discusses the role of Gravity in the falling of moving objects. It gives through the analogy of the arrow. First, it gives the mechanism of arrow projection in Sutra 5.1.17
नोदनाद्यभिषोः कर्म तत्कर्मकारिताच्च संस्कारादुत्तरं तथोत्तरमुत्तरं च
The first action of the arrow is from impulse; the next is the resultant energy produced by the first action, and similarly the next to next. Then it explains why it falls in the next Sutra.
In the absence of resultant/propulsive energy generated by the action, falling results from Gravity.
Thus from the above Sutras, we can acknowledge that Vaisheshika Sutra clearly discusses Gravity. It uses the word “Gurutwa” which is also used in the present time to represent Gravity. Gurutwa in ancient understanding means force which arises due to mass.
Further correlation on the gravitational force or guru at a has been explained in the rig-Veda Rig Veda 1.6.5, 8.12.30
“O Indra! by putting forth your mighty rays, which possess the qualities of gravitation and attraction-illumination and motion – keep up the entire universe in order through the Power of your attraction.”
Rig Veda 1.6.5 and Rig Veda 8.12.30 Says,
“O God, You have created this Sun. You possess infinite power. You are upholding the sun and other spheres and render them steadfast by your power of attraction.”
Yajur Veda 33.43 Says,
“The sun moves in its own orbit in space taking along with itself the mortal bodies like earth through force of attraction.”
Rig Veda 1.35.9 Says,
“The sun moves in its own orbit but holding earth and other heavenly bodies in a manner that they do not collide with each other through force of attraction.”
Rig Veda 1.164.13 further says that,
“Sun moves in its orbit which itself is moving. Earth and other bodies move around the sun due to the force of attraction, because the sun is heavier than them”.
Atharva Veda 4.11.1 Says,
“The sun has held the earth and other planets”
As per Rig Veda, it is been said that “There are suns in all directions, the night sky being full of them.” and same we can further confirm it from Markandeya Purana 78.8, that Blue Sky is Nothing but scattered sunlight.
From all Rig Vedic Sutras, we can confirm that Due to Sun pulling Force every planet is dire to attached and attracted toward him by a unique magnetic force, and by the same force all these planets are affecting us with some sort of Planetary attraction in the form of Cosmic rays. As we are born with the same elements the Sun and the rest of planetary structure are made of, Having on their surface, the same magnetic force keeps pulling us and influencing our mental makeup, state of mind, and power of discretion every day to day karmas. Thus Celestial bodies including Saturn do have a bigger role in our life, as Saturn mass and force are equally powerful in influencing our karmas and bodily actions.
Now! We have understood it well, what is gravity and how different planets are well connected with the sun and its gravitational force and why because of that every planet keeps affecting us. Now, The next question is what makes the Saturn Aspects are So special in influencing our karmic actions ?. As in this portion, we have studied the Saturn mathematical and astronomical aspects. In the next portion, we will try to understand how our Puranic ancient stories are well connected with the planetary aspects and structure. we will try to figure out deep answers lie in the Puranic stories that are connected with the Saturn Evolution time.

The Vaisesika sutras of Kanada Translated by Nandalal Sinha (Via Archive.org)
A Study of Heliocentric Science by Swami Abhedananda
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.
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.
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 –
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-
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 –
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.
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.
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.
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
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: –
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.
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.

With the Blessings of my Kula Guru Acharya Madhva, my Kula Devatha, My Ishta Devatha and Nadi Guru Shri R.G.Rao,I am going to write about BHAKTI YOGA as per NADI ASTROLOGY principles. To explain this I have taken the chart of Shri Prabhupada.
What is Bhakti Yoga?
There is a small chapter stresses the super-excellence of the path of loving devotion over all other types of spiritual practices. It begins with Arjun asking Shree Krishna whom He considers more perfect in Yog—those who are devoted to the personal form of God or those who worship the formless Brahman. Shree Krishna responds by declaring that both paths lead to God-realization. However, He regards the devotees of His personal form as the best yogis. He explains that meditation on the impersonal unmanifest aspect of God is full of tribulations and is exceedingly difficult for embodied beings. But devotees of the personal form, with their consciousness, merged in Him and all their actions dedicated to Him, are swiftly delivered from the cycle of life and death. Shree Krishna thus asks Arjun to surrender his intellect to Him, and fix his mind in exclusive loving devotion on Him alone.
Below mentioned verse explained in chapter 12 clearly explains about it
Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 12, Verse 3-4
ये त्वक्षरमनिर्देश्यमव्यक्तं पर्युपासते |
सर्वत्रगमचिन्त्यञ्च कूटस्थमचलन्ध्रुवम् || 3||
सन्नियम्येन्द्रियग्रामं सर्वत्र समबुद्धय: |
ते प्राप्नुवन्ति मामेव सर्वभूतहिते रता: || 4||
ye tv akṣharam anirdeśhyam avyaktaṁ paryupāsate
sarvatra-gam achintyañcha kūṭa-stham achalandhruvam
sanniyamyendriya-grāmaṁ sarvatra sama-buddhayaḥ
te prāpnuvanti mām eva sarva-bhūta-hite ratāḥ
BG 12.3-4:But those who worship the formless aspect of the Absolute Truth—the imperishable, the indefinable, the unmanifest, the all-pervading, the unthinkable, the unchanging, the eternal, and the immoveable—by restraining their senses and being even-minded everywhere, such persons, engaged in the welfare of all beings, also attain Me.
Let me take the chart of Acharya Srila Prabhupada. He was born on September 1, 1896. In most of Nadi literature, time of birth ie., Lagna is not given. Importance is given to Jivakaraka Guru/Jupiter’s placement. There is no Dasa system, instead, we follow the progression of natal Guru/Jupiter every year to the next sign or Rashi. Here no lordships are not taken into consideration but only planetary Karakattwas are important. Planets which are in 2nd,12th,11th,5th,7th and 9th are most important. There are a lot of Karakattwas allotted to each planet. Anyhow for the reader’s information, the time of birth was 4 PM at Kolkata.
Now in Acharya’s chart, Jivakaraka Guru was placed in Simha Rashi/Leo sign along with its Lord Surya/Sun and Ketu, the planet of renunciation/Tyagakaraka or Mokshakaraka. So this chart has Jeevatma Moksha Yoga ie., Jiva + Atma + Moksha Yoga a powerful Yoga which is in Simha Rashi which is Dharma Tattwa Rashi. Also please note that both Guru/Jupiter and Ketu are in the Nakshatra of Makha ruled by Kethu itself showing HE was born to renounce the world. Here Ketu will enter the next house of Karka Rashi which is the exaltation sign of Guru which is also a Moksha Tattwa Rashi indicating it was HIS last birth.2nd to these planets are Budha exalted ( being born in Budha Hora )with Shukra ( Neecha Bhanga ). This clearly indicates he had Vak Siddhi Yoga.He became a big preacher and also a praiser of Lord Krishna. Now see this combination is in Karma Tattwa and in the same direction, we find exalted Chandra/Moon with Kuja/Mars. Please note that HE was born on Tuesday and the Janma Nakshatra was Mrigashira which was again ruled by Kuja/Mars. So Kuja is powerful in His chart.
Jivakaraka Guru is with Surya who is in his own house. Surya is the Karaka for father.So Acharya’s father was also a highly religious person along with His mother as Chandra, the Karaka for Mother is exalted who was a worshipper of Lord Krishna. Karma Karaka Shani is exalted in 3rd house from Jiva Karaka Guru + Surya + Ketu.12th from Shani is occupied by exalted Budha with Shukra. So His Karma is related to religious preaching, singing bhajans & spiritual activities related to Lord Krishna. Shani’s placement in Tula Rashi which is a Kaama Rashi but the planet is Karma Tattwa based, so Acharya’s main aim/desire in HIS life was Karma related to religious preaching, writings in praise of Lord Krishna. As Guru + Surya + Ketu are in Simha Rashi, HE was a Vedic scholar, also the planets 2nd to these planets ie., Budha + Shukra + Chandra + Kuja have given HIM what is called as
Buddha in 2nd to Jiva Karaka Guru who is exalted in Kanya Rashi gave Him good education related to finance/economics etc. Also, Rahu who is in 7th to Guru indicates Foreign, so Acharya learnt the English language also and became proficient in that language.
Now 7th sign of Zodiac is Thula Rashi and is occupied by exalted Shani, so 7th house got afflicted. Also its lord Shukra/Venus is debilitated in Kanya/Virgo Rashi. So even though He is married, His married life was not smooth. Even though Shukra/Venus is debilitated, it gets Neechabhanga due to association with exalted Budha.
Jivakaraka Guru transits every Rashi for one year, so it completes 12 years when it comes to the previous house of Jivakaraka Guru/Jupiter in the chart. So when Jivakaraka Guru in his 2nd round when transiting over 9th from Shukra/Venus where Chandra and Kuja are there ie., during his 22nd year, HIS marriage took place.In Nadi literature, Surya has Karakattwa for father as well as for son also. This is mainly due to father is responsible for the issues in his family.So in Acharya’s chart, Surya is in his own place of Simha Rashi/Leo sign which is the most powerful sign along with Guru, so He had 2 male children. But now you see the longitude of Surya. He is in Simha 17 Degs.2’.He is moving to next sign within a few days where he meets Shukra/Venus. So even though He had 2 male children nobody helped Him and they were away from Him.
For renunciation, Ketu is the most important. Now see in 1922, the transits were Guru, Shani and Rahu were in Kanya and Ketu in Meena Rashi activating the natal Ketu which aspects Kataka Rashi through its previous house aspect. Shani, the Karma Karaka has decided what to do with this gentleman. He met with His spiritual Guru during this time. ( All the dates are between August and October as September 1, 1896, is His date of birth.)But He took spiritual initiation in 1933. Please check the transit of planets as on September 1, 1933.
For any spiritual initiation, Ketu’s transit is very important. Please see that during the 2nd round of Rahu-Ketu’s transit, Ketu was transiting over natal Jivakaraka Guru, Surya and especially Ketu. Karma Karaka Shani was retrograde and was in Makara Rashi. So he has to be considered from Dhanu also. Now see the planetary patterns are changed. It is like this: Shani ( R ) + Ketu acting on natal Jivakaraka Guru + Surya, the Atma Karaka and Natal Moksha Karaka Ketu. Even though He has not taken Sanyas, his spiritual activities have started from this period onwards.
So all the spiritual activities, lectures related to Lord Krishna, Bhagavatham etc.started from this period along with publications. But during 1959 ( between August and September ), He took complete Sanyas. See the planetary patterns. Transit Guru was in Vrischika Rashi, Shani ( R ) was in Dhanu and Ketu was in Meena Rashi. So these planetary positions made Him take complete Sanyas.
In 1965, September, when transit Guru was in Mithuna Rashi, Shani ( R ) was in Kumbha Rashi, Rahu was in Vrishbha Rashi and Ketu was in Vrischika Rashi ( But his progressed Guru/Jivakaraka Guru was in Vrishabha Rashi -70th year ), He travelled to the USA as per His Guru’s directives and in 1966, ISKCON – International Krishna Consciousness was started by Him.
On November 14, 1977, His Atma attained Moksha. On that day, Rahu-Kala/Mrityu was transiting over Kanya Rashi respecting its previous house where natal Guru, Surya and Ketu are there. Transit Ketu was in Meena Rashi aspecting its previous house of Kumbha Rashi which is in trine to Tula Rashi where Natal Shani is there. Thus there was the end of Karma and end of Jiva and Atma attained Moksha. Please go through His Punya chart below.
This is my 1st Nadi article written on this auspicious day of Shri Krishna Janmashtami and is completely dedicated to HIM. Without HIM,I am nothing in this Universe.
Many people used to ask me how planets having huge mass and distance of millions of light years from earth impacting our life infinitely that one cannot have any choice to change his life actions or course of the journey in any way. It’s a point to think and one needs a deep understanding of Spiritual sciences for the answers to all these questions? i.e How physical bodies have a deep impact on our Karma, on our life actions and decision making ?, Does it means that planets are controlling our karma, our power of thinking or have telling influence on our brain signals that we cannot think other than what it has been decided by the invisible power already !.
Does every planet generate such powerful electromagnetic or electrical impulses that they have an ability to control our mind, or can fix our destiny points and that there are no such other choices we have left it for changing our destiny, or it has been already decided by the almighty even before our so many journies of soul or these karmic actions points or destinies of soul already been fixed by some invisible system even before we have taken birth on this mortal earth.
Now the question remains same, can we change our course of action or it is been fixed by some boundaries or by an invisible system?
Seeking this answer I have been researching a lot in my library of spiritual books and many a time I had tried it a lot to seek answers from ancient scriptures. Mostly I failed in my attempts and this question still remained a mystery. What I have learnt from my past learning journey is that for looking exact answer. The irony is there is no clarity
Sometimes I keep on thinking how planetary rotations happening in the celestial sphere impact our lifetime. there is an infinite number of questions daily every person try to find their answers via astrologically. so much worse and everyone is feeling its effects individually. Why planets are behaving differently in everyone lives.
Questions seem very interesting because none of any explanation is mention in any of Astrological and Astronomical treaties, how planets are working in everyone human life individually.
Well if you want to understand you need to understand How Birth and Death cycle is rotating in everyone’s life, scientifically it is not an easy task to provide any logic behind its processing. Spiritually you can explain – Your Karma Cycle – Planets are bound to work relatively according to your Rebirth, Karmas and Soul action and choice cycles.
Scientifically time is working parallelly according to our current karmas, Our Current choices and those actions generate Time ripples like as of gravitational ripples created by huge mass moving body in space as we have studied in physics, same as in case of spiritual science when we make any choice or do a certain amount of some particular karmas, time used to move accordingly in that direction. It normally seems as time is uni-directional or in a one-directional scheme but actually it is working in the multidimensional framework based on our actions and choices.
More Louder the actions we perform in the mortal world, much wider will be the consequences of our karmas impact or fruits that we can See or analyze from the Navamsa Chart that an exclusively shows us fruits of all our sanchit karmas and more the soul will bound in Space-time and rebirth Cycle.
Its work like a simple phenomenon as in science, Heavier you throw a stone in silent water, much wider or deeper it will create or make ripples in silent water flow. Same as we can understand this principle in our life too, karma works like in the same process earlier we had discussed, when we throw a stone in a silent water much wider consequences and ripples it will generate and come back with same intensity, same way karmic impacts or fruits of consequences of actions of humans always come back with much power and heavy consequences of actions can be experienced in the near future of life as a result of our past actions, so we should always watch our current choices that can decide our future life shape and orientation.
Similarly, the planetary motion of planets in space plane is like the carbon copy of those Consequences or actions formed in water when we throw a heavy stone in deep silent water or they used to depict how time moves or flow in straight like flowing water that can never move back. It will always go in one direction but has choices to choose multiple paths in a different stream of flow same as like action of the water flow or the karmas of humans
In a more scientific way, Time is directly proportional to your actions and karma in society and Planets shows those time consequences which are made by past actions and reason for occurring in future life. (T = P= (K + A = C ) i.e where T = time, P = Planets, A =Action , C = Future and K = Karma.
Planets work on the basis of our Prana (Life) Energies.
Planets are rotating around the sun in a fixed orbital distance in every hour, minutes and Second in a constant speed; there is no variation in its speed same exactly as your wristwatch keep moving in Hours and Minutes as per earth Rotation around Sun in 360 degrees in 365 days.
Same as Planets are part of “ The Cosmic Clock “ located in our solar systems like a monitoring and administrative authority made by one who made us to monitor our cycle of Karma, rebirth and Soul Journey in every seconds and millisecond.
Planets are simply signification of Kaal Chakara system – The wheel of time. We are living in 3d Dimensional world and the Wheel of time represents the 4th Dimensional world – The Time – Kaal – The Eternal Changes Controlled by two Particles – The Shiva and Shakti – Two bodies who controls time and life cycle.
Time is relatively equal to the Planets Speed and Motion and directly proportional to the Human beings Life, Breadth, Hours, seconds and Minutes cycle. The Soul is bound to Live in a Body as per contractual documents to perform the cycle of Karma to finish pending karma based on previous births, one has to either suffer or celebrate the Karmas cycle based on The Sanchit and The Prarabhda Karma one had done in its previous births.
Sun Moon and are Two Supporting Pins moving parallel in a Cosmic clock in a geocentrically motion around the Earth. Shorter Pin Holds Fast-moving events ruled by Moon (Thoughts) and the Longer events are ruled by Sun (Aatma) and the 12 signs are the path of Both Sun and Moon where they rotate every day and night to indicate what and when an event has to trigger and how it will influences Mana, Jeeva and Aatma.
Rest of the planets are moving relative to Both the Sun and moon in the same clock and anti-clockwise direction to signify when an event has to trigger in everyone life, that’s why for any event we need to see each and every planet aspects and placements because all are working relative to each other.
Planetary alignments in a cosmic clock trigger the events and when both Sun and Moon pointing toward that particular individual sign. Time is moving in one direction and same as planets are moving too in one direction that’s why Time is relatively equal to planets Speeds, Motion and Distance.
That what Einstein was trying to explain in its equation of E= MC2, the Subtle Logic behind Cosmos creation of Ataman, Matter and Time.
Bramha, Vishnu and Mahesh are the three Tri Gunas present in each planet, soul and Body and in Nakashtras signifying Nature of planets and Aatmic Qualities.
Now you are able to understand how planets are working in our Physical and Spiritual plane, the next question is how Remedies are working??
How Remedies Works?
Well, Remedies work based on karma i.e The sanchit and Pradbha Karma one has done. One who is having Strong Navamsa, 9th house/Lord in D1 and D9 remedies always work for them with efforts. That indicates about Credited Karma or accumulated karma, the portion of your good Karma in total. Without putting efforts or some actions in the form karma none of the remedies will work. Only Good karma in future can mitigate the impact or consequences of the past deeds to some extent. Karma generates ripples of karmic action in the time cycle of birth and death, more the past deed is heavy more it can be felt in many births of the soul that we can figure out of the Retrograde nature of the planets present in the one chart that shows the Pending karma soul is carrying from many of the past journies. If Burden of the soul is heavy it is impossible to clear the debt of past karmic actions in current birth. To get some relaxations from these karmic actions either one need to put Intense Tapasya or One need total surrender toward the ishta devta. Another way is one can take shelter of the Siddha Yogi or a Divine guru to get a way out of these heavy karmic deeds that one has done in the past journies.If we want to understand Remedies, in general, we need to first understand consequences of the karmas.
Remedies are simply like applying for Discounts from your credited Karma, If you have Zero balance in your Sanchit Karma, won’t expect Your Application of Remedies will be approved for further processing.
If the Prarabhda is 90% and Good part of the Sanchit is 10 % – You have to face past deeds results of karma in your life as part of previous birth Bad Karma. Both the Karmas are inversely proportional to Each other and Remaining Percentage signifies, How much intense karma you have to suffer in this birth or it has to carry forward in next birth.
So before Applying for a concession from almighty Love – first look out your Praradbha Karma – your placement of the 6th house and its lord in D1,D9 and D60 shows your Deeds of the past life. In this life, 6th house shows debts, Sufferings, Diseases, enemies, weakness out of the past actions. What sort of one has done karma in the past same one has to face the one of 6 Shadripus. I.e Venus shows Extreme lust and lack of happiness from spouse and Financial stress in this life. If Sun is 6th lord one will face a lack of respect in public life and his ego always tries to dominate the native. Same way the effects of other planets can be decoded. To understand the Consequences or intensity of the 6th lord in current life one has to check 6th house or its lord strength. If it is placed in Sthira Rashi’s, or afflicted in both D9 and D60 chart Impact of karmas will be intense in the current life, and whenever there will be transit of Saturn or nodes transiting around this sign (6th lord sign) one can experiences Results of the past deeds during that tenure good or bad depending on the Strength of the 6th , and sometime the result will be hard to avoid and suffering will be intense. One has to face it or experience the consequences as it shows your Prarabdha karma. If the 6th lord is in Dual Sign, One can put efforts to mitigate it to some extent. If it is in Chara Rashi one can neutralize the impact of Karmas to much extent and burn it in current birth and native efforts will get its results and Impact of Dashas periods will be softer on the native. Moon Placement, Sign and the Planetary Dashas Shows Sum total of your Sanchit karma. Dasha Period in Vedic astrology is Sum total of your Sanchit Karma and Transits are the Carrier agent and Delivery Boy of that Karma, When will the Parcel (Fruits) of Karma deliver to you, totally depends on the Transits. That time your Old karma’s (Both good and bad) of past should get triggered or get align with your Dasha Period. Delivery boy (Transits) can deliver either good fruits or bad totally depends on your total karma (Dasha and Planetary Placements).
Remedies means – Almighty is giving you a concession, Relaxation in your total karmic account for some period of time.
If you won’t do remedies in the form of Vedic Prayers, Mantras, Homam, Daanm Punyas with the selfless approach it cannot give you 100% results. For remedies to work and its effectiveness or sincerity depends on one 5th house and its lordship in D1, D9 and D60 chart.5th bhava shows how much sincere or dedicated you are in your devotion towards your ishta Devi/Devta.It’s Your bhakti and shows your total surrendered approach towards your Ishta. Beneficial planet shows strong faith on your Ishta whereas Malefic shows One has to put more efforts, need strict dedication and discipline to get devoted toward your ishta. Placement of nodes in the 5th house shows your Inconsistency or fluctuating devotion toward multiple deities and one may not be regular in his devotion or daily prayers. The strength of the 5th lord Deities and its form depends on the placement of the 5th lord in Lagna, D9 and D60 amsa’s i.e Mercury shows Durga and Vishnu both, whereas Shukar shows worshipping of Laxmi or Devi who controls the Family households i.e Kula Devi. Same way Saturn shows the form of Narayana and worshipping of Kali as well. Only Ishta has the power to mitigate your any karmas of the past if your dedication and devotion are much stronger and consistent. If 5th House lord is well placed in Lagna and Varga charts it will act as an added advantage in worshipping and bhakti toward your Diety. Influence of the Moon on 5th house is considered as the grace of God or good for Ishta Bhakti. If there is no selfless devotion or inner feelings available in daily prayers – nothing will work. Astrologically, If there is no benefice influence on the 9th house or 9th house lord is not well placed in D1, D9 and D60 1000 tries in the form of remedies to please your Ishta Dev can go in vain.
As per Karma Principal, you have given this birth to cleanse your past deeds, improve the current life for the better next life. By the Grace of almighty, you have given concession from your total Sanchit karma to improve your future life that is seen from the 5th house and its lord. More you follow it more you can better move on the right path. If Total Karmic account is zero, Debit is more than Credit may not work.
Without the Permission of Trinities – Planet won’t change its Default path and duties even if you are Billionaire or Millionaire or even if you perform 1000’s of Hawan’s or Yagyas – Nothing will work.
Almighty need your Love and Devotion, not your Money.

The word Diwali has originated from Deepavali, and root name is taken from the Deepawali word whereas deep means (lamp) + avali means (row), putting Lamps in a row or in a sequence. Deepavali is thus a row of lamps. During Diwali, lamps are lit everywhere where darkness is there.
HistoryWhen Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after completing fourteen years in exile, His subjects celebrated by lighting lamps. Since then, the festival of Diwali has been celebrated.
The spiritual meaning of Diwali‘By killing the demon Narkasur, Shrikrushna freed people from an attitude of indulgence in worldly pleasures, jealousy, unrighteousness and negative attitudes and made them happy by giving thoughts of God (or Divine thoughts), which is what Diwali is about. We have been celebrating Diwali year after year merely as a custom. Today the festival has lost its true meaning. If after comprehending this hidden meaning our knowledge is kindled, then the ignorance in the form of darkness will reduce. Also, the domination by people with demoniacal tendencies of enjoying worldly pleasures and indulging in unrighteous attitudes, over the righteous, will reduce.Why we Celebrate Lakshmi in Deepawali
Goddess Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of wealth. She is worshipped by all households devotes and is associated with the festival of Deepawali when people offer special prayers to her to invite her into their homes. Lakshmi Puja is performed for prosperity, material abundance, and spiritual prosperity. She is worshipped to remove troubles that prevent us from starting a spiritual path or business.
Lakshmi Pujan (Sanskrit: लक्ष्मी पूजा), celebrated on Amavasya (new moon day) of the Krishna Paksha (Dark fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat, month of Ashwin, on the third day of Tihar and is considered as the main festive day of Deepawali.
The most auspicious time for the puja is decided when “Amavasya tithi” prevails during “Pradosh Kaal” or the evening time. On this day, the sun enters its second course and passes the constellation Libra, which is represented by the balance or scale. Hence, the sign of Libra is believed to suggest the balancing and closing of account books.
This Year Deepawali Muhurata : 2018 Diwali Puja Muhurat :
According to the Drikpanchang.com On Diwali, Lakshmi Puja should be done during Pradosh Kaal which starts after sunset and approximately lasts for 2 hours and 24 minutes. Some sources propose Mahanishita Kaal also to perform Lakshmi Puja. Mahanishita Kaal is best suited for Tantrik community and practising Pandits who know the best about Lakshmi Puja during this special time. For common people, one should do Pooja in Pradosh Kaal Muhurat.
According to many legends, Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and Lord Vishnu’s wife, visits her devotees in the Deepawali night and bestows blessings upon each of them and it is believed that Mata Laxmi roams around on the earth on Diwali night during Vrishbha and Simha Lagna.
Step 1: Precheck for Deepawali Pooja
To welcome the Goddess, devotees must follow below-mentioned pre-requests before going to Perform Deepawali Pooja :

2) Maintain Peace and harmony: Maa Lakshmi likes peace and harmony, So try to prevent disputes between family members. Make a loving and peaceful environment at home.
3) Give Respect to every woman at your home: Never show disrespect towards your wife and Mother, she is Grih Lakshmiji (Lakshmi of Home). If she would be happy, Dhan Lakshmiji (Goddess of Money) will be happy.
4) Wake up early in Deepwali: Get up early in the morning.
5) Offer Bhog to your Temple Ishta Dev/ Devi: Take food only after bathing and worshipping in the morning. Offer food to agni dev or keep bhog for God.
6) Respect your elders: Give respect to your elder, your parents and have faith in God.

It is believed that goddess Lakshmi likes cleanliness and visit the cleanest house first. Hence, the worshipping is done with offerings of haldi (turmeric) and sindoor(vermilion) on this day. Usually, Lakshmi Puja consists of a combined puja of five deities:
1. Ganesha is worshipped at the beginning of every auspicious act as Vighneshvara.
2. Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped in her three forms; Mahalakshmi the goddess of wealth and money, Mahasaraswati the goddess of books and learning, and Mahakali.

Grateful for your wholehearted interest in the deeper aspects of spirituality and happy that the sharings are bringing awareness among the right set of people. As you must have gone through my last V-log on “Lakshmi- The Celestial Goddess” and if you have not then do read it before you read this one as both are linked in some way.Here is the link for the last V-log:
Today’s V-log is about bringing awareness about the festival of Deepawali. So, now as you know about Lakshmi, which has no relation with money but with one’s evolution on the life journey, now we need to understand who is “Ram”, “राम”. Is it the same राम or it means something else? Is it that whole Bharat is celebrating the coming back of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile? Let’s decode this today along with few more facts.
First of all, what does the word “राम” means; “र” represents the creative energy and light, “T” represents more/abundance of that energy and giving it a pathway, “म” signifies the waking state. So, this gives us a clear meaning of “राम”, which conveys the creative energy of light which is abundant and gives pathway to reach the waking state. One thing that we must realize now is that the pure & deep ancient knowledge is lost because of which we are merely surviving on the information which is passed from one generation to another. So is the case of our festivals and rituals. Living in a pure & spiritually rich country like Bharat, we can easily access to that wisdom, just if we connect to our roots and do not follow anything blindly.
Same way, Deepawali signifies the moment when the light is powerful and it removes all darkness from within. It reflects the beginning of the days of light as Deepawali is celebrated on the dark night of Amavasya which denotes, even if there is darkness all around but still you can enlighten amidst the darkness by lightning. Burn the soft cotton wick “chitta” by pouring the oil of “samkalpa shakti” in the earthen pot like “body” and let Thy Name by the flame to illumin you from within. “Ram” inside you has to be brought back home from the exile and it must shine within. Wake up to all what is causing darkness inside and let your light shine amidst all darkness as the Amavasya night.
How long will you continue to celebrate the festival of Deepawali without the return of your Ram home? How long will you continue to clean your cemented houses and let your house body be in utter dirt and darkness created by anger, hatred, sorrow, lust and grief? Will just burning lamps on your walls bring light inside? Think on these lines!!
The same life begins as the next day comes. Same routine, same life, same people, same emotions, same everything which shows that there is still darkness and you continue to live in the middle of Amavasya. Moon might shine on the sky but you there is yet no light in your conscious. Another Deepawali, an opportunity came and went but house remained unclean, the life remained in darkness and no change. Do you think sages were not wise enough to decide and fix festivals for us? Every festival is kept with great significance but the whole essence is lost and the surfaced rituals are left which lead you nowhere.
How can you celebrate Deepawali?
– Free yourself from all the dark emotions which kill your vigour and pull you down.
– Promise yourself that you will bring your Ram back home inside with your strong will power and practice.
– Forgive people whom you could not because forgiving them is not good for them but it will only set you free.
– Bow to nature and Lord Almighty to shed light into your life through knowledge.
– Keep your body in good health by feeding good food (ahaar) in all respects, be it natural food, knowledge or truthful company.
– Spread your sweet words to one and all. Make it a permanent thing that you will gift your words to people.
– Take it as a new birth like a new moon shines the very next day to Deepawali.
Remember, until your energy does not rise above the basic functionality of life, until the first lotus at the Muladhar does not flower, till then Lakshmi can not reside.
One more hint: Govardhan (Go means senses, Vardhan means to be enhanced) Puja is performed after Deepawali, which signify that awaken your Ram (light) on Deepawali and then your senses will function in an enhanced manner, which reflects the abilities like clairvoyance & clairaudience. But, this depends upon the shining of inner light, your Ram.I hope this will help you look at Deepawali in an absolute way and it shall be prosperous for you.
