If is multiplied by 27 it gives you which is the total equal to the twelve houses referred to earlier. There are two methods of tabulating these Nakshatras. One method shows the degrees of Nakshatras from 0 to and the other shows thedegrees occupied by each Nakshatra in each sign. If these twelve houseswhich are to be allotted to seven planets each planet will get 1. The solution given in Hindu astrology is: the Sun owns only one house or rashi, Leoor Simha and the Moon owns only one rashi, Cancer or Karka. Solution Now thereare ten houses and five planets awaiting allotment.

The easy solution that emerges out now is allot two houses to each of the fiveplanets. There is a very easy way to remember it. Divide these twelve rashis into twodivisions six belonging to the Moon and six belonging to the Sun. The rashi number of the Moon is four Karka proceed in backward direction fromhere 4, 3, 2, 1, 12 and The rashi number of the Sun is five Simha and proceedin forward direction from here 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and Repeat it from Simha in forward direction. Happy and Unhappy Conditions of PlanetsHindu astrology which deals with the happy and unhappy conditions of human beingswho are happy or unhappy or indifferent or very comfortable in some surroundings,comfortable in some, less comfortable in some, uncomfortable in some andmiserable in some, so too planets have different conditions and different moods.

Thecondition of planets in a horoscope reflects it. Note: Do not take it literally because there are many brilliant exceptions to theserules. If that is not remembered, only a gloomy and fatalistic view of a horoscope willhave to be taken, as many astrologers do. Just as the company of different human beings and different surroundings createdifferent moods in you so do planets in a horoscope. Planets are happy in someconditions and unhappy in some other conditions. There are varying emotionalstates. CautionBefore you learn the following lesson, overcome the mechanistic attitude of the agewe live.

Astrology of Hindus is not a set of formulae to be applied in a push-buttonway. What is being given here is for a quick understanding of the fundamentals only. Do not take them as final pronouncements. If you commit that mistake, you willbecome dogmatic. Hindu astrology is worlds most developed astrology because India is the land whereastrology originated and, was developed over a period of thousands of years. Heremany astrological experiments have been done and many techniques tested and re-tested. Avoid dogma but follow the steps given below.

The more flexible but, notromantically stupid, you are in learning astrology, the better are the chances of yourdeveloping proper astrological ability. When and upto what degrees in a signis a planet exalted is the first lesson you learn. Note : Except Mercury who is exalted in Kanya no other planet gets any exaltedstatus in its own house. Note: All exalted planets get debilitated in the seventh house from their points ofexaltations. For instance the Sun is exalted in Mesha. Now count in this way — Meshafirst, Vrisha second, Mithuna third, Karka ending with Tula which is the seventhhouse from Aries.

MoolatrikonaThe second best condition for planets is called as the Moolatrikona. Remember it. Sun in Simha upto 20 degreesMoon in Vrishabha upto 27 degreeMars in Mesha upto 12 degreesMercury in Kanya upto 20 degreesJupiter in Dhanu upto 10 degreesVenus in Tula upto 15 degreesSaturn in Kumbha upto 20 degreesNote: Except the Moon all other planets get the Moolatrikona condition in one oftheir own houses. Own House 7. The third best condition for a planet is to be in its own house other thanMoolatrikona house which, except in the case of the Moon is of course its ownhouse.

Remember it thus:Note : Sun, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn recognize the same house inwhich they are in a moolatrikona condition, as their own houses. But their otherhouses are also their own houses. The only exception is the Moon. These are three of the happiest conditions for planets in different housesLagnaYou were born on some day of some month of some year at a particular time and ina particular place with your lagna being one of twelve: Mesha,Vrisha, Mithuna,Karka, Tula, Vrishchik, Dhanu, Makar, Kumbha or Meena.

To arrive at a Lagna somecalculations are to be done. Since, we are, however, avoiding mathematics, only arough method of checking the horoscope in a Hindu chart is explained. In Hindu astrology the Sun changes from one rashi into another in the middle ofEnglish months.

If you remember this, you will know where your Sun should be atthe time of your birth. Keep calculating at this rate, the lagna changing after every two hours. Four cardinalpoints are useful to do this exercise easily. At sunrise the Sun will be in the Lagna. During the mid-day in the fourth house from the Sun. At sun-set in the seventh house from the Sun. At mid-night in the tenth house form the Sun. Do not apply this blindly. It is a very rough method made use of by astrologers toanswer questions horary or prashna astrology when they are required to answerquestion while in a train or an aeroplane where they cannot calculate with the toolswhich they keep with them.

Sunrise and sunset change from place to place and country to country. Still thismethod will be found to be working satisfactorily. The calculation wasdone mentally while sitting in the football stadium, watching the World Cup Football in USA they call it soccer matches. My prediction was that Brazilwould win and one of the Italian players would be injured. This prediction too cameout correct, exactly. But how can we apply this to arctic regions where there are six-months of day andsix-months of night. I have no answer but I am confident I can solve this problem, ifgiven some astrological data.

I am not aware if any Indian astrologer has an answerto it. After making such mental calculations see your computer cast horoscope for ananalysis. Keep doing the exercise. It will help you concentrate on a horoscope, which inturn, will sharpen your predictive powers. See the examples given here. It is a rough method of mentally calculating the lagnawhen the duration of day and night are more or less equal or do not have muchdifference.

The position, month by month for almost all years will be as follows —1. January 14th, Makar or Capricon at 10 am. Februay 12th, Kumbha or Aquarius at pm. March 14th, Meena or Pisces at pm. In India the day begins at sunrise 5. June 15th at am. July 16th at am. October 17th at am. November 16th at pm. For a birth in the U. A good computer programme will solve this problem. Calculate your Lagna or the Ascendant of the Rising SignYour should still be able to calculate mentally on the basis of your Sun-sign as givenin Hindu astrology the birth ascendant of yours, at least approximately.

It is donethus. See where the Sun is at the time of your birth. Roughly each ascendant lasts for two hours. Therefore start form your Sun-sign andproceed thus —2. Sun at birth is in Mesha or Aries, so for two hours in the morning the ascendant orLagna will be Mesha. After two hours, the Lagna will be Taurus or Vrishabha. Another easy way of remembering it is, If you were born at sunrise your Sun willbe in your Lagna.

After two hours it will move to next sign. Your Moon SignFrom the foregoing discussion about your Lagna, it must have become clear to youwhat your Sun-sign Hindu is. But in Hindu astrology you must know your Moon-sign also. If a specific question isput to you, tell me your lagna, the Moon-sign and the Sun-sign, you now know thatthey are three different points in your horoscope to be made use of for predictions. So the answer can be. Your may have sometime or the other read about your life on the basis of Sun-signsor the Moon-signs and may even have been reading daily, weekly, monthly or even Now can the patterns of destiny of the entire mankind be dividedonly in twelve signs, since there are only twelve rashis?

Have you seen the absurdityof the situation? So do not get addicted to such prediction. Your Janma NakshatraOn the basis of your Moon, you can see what was your Janma nakshatra or birthconstellation. It has to be one of the twenty-seven constellations mentioned earlier. Your janma-nakshatra is important for calculating the time-cycle described as theVimshottari dasha of years. Depending on your janma nakshatra what period ofwhich planet your are passing through is the most vital factor for predictions. If you were born in the nakshatra of Ketu 7 years it will be followed by that ofVenus 20 years etc.

See the chart on nakshatras. These are called mahadashas. Each mahadasha is sub-divided into nine antar-dashas or sub-periods. This five-fold division of dasha is the mostextraordinary and unparalleled system of timing events in the history of astrology. Do not be surprised if I tell you that though the Vimshottari dasha is the mostpopular, in Hindu astrology there are forty-five Jaimini dasha-systems and anotherfifty-four nakshatra dasha systems of Parashara, the greatest astrological genius theworld has ever produced.

Divisions of Dashas for Timing Events5.


We will be using only the Vimshottari dash in the book and all our illustrations willrefer to a The Mahadasha the major period b The Antar dasha the sub-period and c The Pratyantar dasha the sub-sub-period only. No use of the fourth division sookshma dasha or the fifth division prana dasha isbeing made use of here. But in two cases when I made use of where I was absolutelyassured that the birth time noted was without any error and the calculation of thehoroscope was cast hundred percent correct. Do not jump to any conclusion, generally pessimistic or optimistic, only on thebasis of the dasha-antardasha etc.

But rest assured the sixty percent of correctpredictions are based on it. This is the best ever method of timing events everdevised by mankind. After you have become familiar with the use of the dasha system, use transits ofplanets. Those who over-emphsise the role of transit of planets without firstexamining the promised results of dasha, are like people who are measuring the sizeof an elephant on the basis of the length its tail. But first revise what you have beentaught so far, step by step. AspectsAfter revising it now the first preliminary step takes you into predictive astrology. This is the aspect of planets.

These aspects are general and special. Let me first takeup general aspects. All planets aspect the seventh house form their position. It can tabulated thus. Keep practising this lesson first. Take up any horoscope and see which planets, Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter,Venus and Saturn are aspecting the 7th house from its location in a horoscope. Thismust become a natural habit with you.

You must remember that planets give their effects not merely from where they are ina horoscope but also produce these effects in the house which they aspect. Three planets Mars, Jupiter and Saturn have special aspects. Mars has two additionalaspects the fourth and the eighth. Jupiter has two additional aspects the fifthe andthe ninth. Saturn has two additional aspects the third and the tenth.

So Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will have three aspects, one general and two special. These are being given in a tabular form here. Note — Mars will influence four houses, the first the house where he is positioned inand then three other houses through his general and special aspects. Remember — Even when Mars is in transit he will be aspecting three houses andis positioned in one house. How this P is applied is being shown here.

After this try any other horoscope. Why you must start with P first? Remember by doing P you start your astrological adventure of collectinginformation, intelligence and clues about the lord of each house of a horoscope. Aparticular lord may be excellently placed while another may be in a bad condition. Now you begin to see that life is never a story of all round joy or total sorrow. But P is only the opening chapter of a seven layered story of your life which thisbook will teach. So proceed patiently first by doing this exercise intensely.

InstructionsThere is no book on Hindu astrology in which such tables have been given to over-simplify the understanding of aspects and earlier, of friendships and enmities ofplanets, as here. It has been done mainly with the intention to help people avoidmemorizing. The traditional subject, late in their lives, and have no capacity tomemorise. When learning through rote memory is not possible, what is surelypossible is to learn through associative memory.

My Advice1. Never start the analysis of any horoscope without applying the MemoryTablet coined by me to make learning of astrology easy, methodical and scientific. As you will see in the given example of John F Kennedy, the tragedy of his careeris well explained by wrong placement of many lords of different houses3. You can develop your own astrological skill when you apply the first of twoMemory Tablets, I am teaching and keep repeating it In the state of Uttar Pradesh there is a special branch of police known as PACcreated to control communal riots.

But the astrological PAC is meant to control anarchical and chaotic analysis of ahoroscope. Therefore I have evolved a memory tablet, the first part of which is :PAC — P stands for the position a planet has occupied in a horoscope. Instead oftaking fragmentary, confused and unsynthesized view, it is better, to proceedsystematically so that you are able to arrive at a meaningful conclusion.

In all horoscopes first of all see how the lord of a particular house is placed. Therefore let me read a sermon to you first a dangerous sermon, which if youremember, you will not take a fragmentary, muddle-headed and jumbled view of ahoroscope. C Practice Horoscopes The memory table will be expanded now to make it a complete scheme. But beforelearning them, it is necessary to understand some technical terms of astrology whichare used more commonly. Kendras Quadrants — The Lagna, the fourth, seventh and the tenth houses ofthe lagna are called kendras and the lords of those houses are called lords ofkendras, wherever they may be placed in a horoscope.

Trikonas Trines — The lagna and the fifth and the ninth houses from the lagnaare trines. The lords of the fifth and ninth houses have been described as trikonaswhich is a fallacy. The word tri in Sanskrit means three. In what is known as theashtakvarga, in trikona shodhana , the lagna, the fifth and the ninth houses aretaken.

Thus lagna lord is both a kendra lord and also the trikona lord. Panapharas Cadent — The second, fifth, the eighth and the eleventh housesare known as panapharas. Then a special term used is Upachaya house which arethe third, sixth, tenth and eleventh houses and their lords. Apoklimas Succudent — The third, sixth, ninth and the twelfth houses areknown as apolklima. But since the ninth house is trikona, it is generally omittedfrom this category. Points to RememberIn understanding the meaning of P.

It is an area of ever-expandingresearch, very simple apparently, but very complex. In the example horoscope, kendras are Kanya, Dhanu, Meena and Mithuna. Trikonas are Kanya, Makar, Vrisha. Panapharas are Tula, Makar, Mesha, Karka. The permutations and combinations of these, lords of kendras, trikonas, panapahars,apoklimas and upachayas are used for predictions.

Persons whom these Planets Represent inDaily LifeNow, if we take the normal day to day, mundane affairs, these very planets representthe following worldly persons. The SunThe king of the solar system, is the king always and everywhere. The level of regalsplendour he shows will depend on his condition in a horoscope. Family — The father in a family and paternal relations, the Sun is also a dignifiedadministrative authority.

Society — The King in a monarchy, the Sun is the dignitary in modern democraciesand represents highly placed persons whether in government service or privatefirms. The Moon Like the Sun, the other planet representing royalty is the Moon. Family — Represents the mother and everything connected with mother. Society — The wise men Dwija of the society, popular person and indemocracies, the Moon aspected by Saturn represents the charisma somepersonalities develop.

MarsMars is the natural commander-in-chief in astrology. Family — Brothers, sisters. While many astrologers do not acceptthis, there is strong enough reason to go deeper into this aspect as some of myresearches prove this to be very valid. Society — Mars gives an important marital point which pertains to marriage whichis why in Hindu astrology so much stress is laid on Mangalya happiness of amarriage and also Kujadosha Kuja is a synonym for Mars.

In social life, Marsrepresents the army, the police and men in uniform, administrators, men in highposition, rulership, estate agents etc. MercuryIn astrology Mercury is the prince. Family — Cousins, maternal uncles. Notable — In Uttar-Kalamrita, Kalidas attributes to Mercury some other specialsignifications: maternal grand-father, and younger coborns and or brothers andsisters.

Society — Mercury represents knowledge and in modern life, business. So thisplanet has many great significations of very wide variety. Mathematicians, sculptors,astrologers, astronomers, scholars, speakers, writers, men who know the secrets ofmantras and yantras. In modern age, Mercury is the financial expert, accountant,auditor, journalist, newspaper man, paper merchant etc. Notable — The association of Mercury with certain planets in some rashis from thelagna is the clue to finding it out. Lot of new researches will have to be done in thisarea. JupiterJupiter who is given the honored place of being the guru of gods, represents, thedivine, the sacred.

Family — Children, elder brother, respected elders in the family whoseintervention and advice helps solve family problems Notable — In Uttar Kalamrita, the other significations given to Jupiter aregrandsons and also grand-father. Notable — In Bhrigu astrology, Jupiter is said to represent the husband of awoman just as Mars is said to represent the wife of a man. Society — Traditionally, the priest, the scholar, the adviser to the king in ancienttimes , Jupiter represents many new modern professionals.

Notable — The judge, the teacher, the lawyer, the adviser in new modern formsbecome legal experts, the management experts, the psychologists, the bankers etc. VenusVenus, traditionally the guru of asuras monsters , is described as the lord of sixty-four arts, meaning that Venus represents, culture and sophistication. Family — Represents the sex-life of married partners in a tradition-bound societyotherwise, the sex-life of an individual. Generally Venus has been treated as wife. Forthose born after sun-rise Venus is said to take the place of Moon and becomes themother. Notable — Generally Venus represents family prosperity, conveyances, jewellery,and precious possessions.

Upasanamsa/Vimsamsa (D-20)

Society — Venus being representative of arts, all form of arts, fine or commercial,dance, song, drama, literature, poetry being its sole domain, dramatists, poets,dancers etc. Notable — In modern context, the perfumers, hoteliers, owners of restaurant,computer-software men and even those who deal with flesh-trade fall under the vastVenusian umbrella. SaturnHindu astrologers are mostly superstitious in their understanding and treatment ofthe significations of Saturn. True, Saturn represents, trouble, sorrow, old age,sickness. Yet in all the great classics of Hindu astrology Saturn has been given someother beneficent roles which are overlooked.

My best research given in my booksemphasise the positive side of Saturn with many illustrations. Family — Old men and servants in the family. Old, dilapidated houses speciallymade of bricks. For those born at night Saturn represents father, taking the place ofthe Sun, the natural significator of father.

Society — If the Sun is the aristocrat, Saturn is the democrat while Mars is thedictator. These hints help us in making predictions about the type of government anation will have at a given point of time. Lower classes, democrats, crippled persons,old men, are represented by Saturn in traditional astrology. In the changed socio-economic times of ours, Saturn is the seeker of powers throughelections to democratic bodies, iron-smiths and also industrialists in cooperationwith Mars , a psychologist in cooperation with Jupiter, an artist in cooperation withVenus, a sculptor in co-operation with Mercury etc.

Notable — Astrologers who fail to seek the very wide and sweeping range of allnew professions created by Saturn will fall into thousands of errors of judgments. RahuNext to Saturn the most condemned planet is Rahu.

vimshamsa – Fourth Dimensional Astrology

Unless astrologers do newresearches and see the positive side of these planets, more damage will be done toastrology than has already been done so far. Family — Paternal grand-parents though Uttar Kalamrita also uses Rahu formaternal grand-parents , old, sick person in the family and those that become non-conformists. Society — The foreigner, the engineer, the architect, the space engineer, thepolitician, air hostesses, aeroplane pilots and manifold new technical and semi-technical professions fall in the domain of Rahu.

KetuKetu is the most baffling planet in astrology, spiritual, divine on the one hand andbaffling in a medical sense. Family — Represents maternal grand-parents though Uttara Kalamrita takespaternal grand-parents , the slightly unorthodox members of the family. Society — Ketu is the planet which plays key role in shaping a doctor or other menin semi-medical or alternative systems of medicine. Ketu, combined with otherplanets, produces inventors, men dealing with subtle secrets of nature around ourworld.

Notable — Some hints have been given here about the persons represented bydifferent planets some of them are traditional and some of them are additional. Forinstance Ketu represents languages and linguists. These days when people learncomputer it naturally falls under Ketu because there is computer language to belearnt. If planets combine, aspect each other in certain houses from the lagna, the meaningof this should be interpreted with an open mind.

The classical principle should neverbe overlooked and the new meaning must be discovered otherwise astrologicalresearch will remain stagnant.

The Spirituality Associated With HousesIn delineating the effects of each house, the start should again be made with thespiritual promise of each house. By each house from the Lagna which is always thefirst house. Thus, for a person born with Meena lagna the first house is Meena, thesecond house Mesha and the twelfth house Kumbha etc.

Since spiritual astrology is generally kept a secret and astrologers do not payattention to it, emphasis should be laid on this aspect both for the spiritual guidanceof the person concerned and for preparation for a fine spiritual era into whichmankind will enter after A. The First HouseThe first house representing oneself, shows the beginning of awareness of spiritualside of human life. If three or more planets are in the first house, such persons,inspite of all distractions, can practice self-control with determination, andsuccessfully.

From the first house springs the desire to enjoy peace generally and the tendency torenounce because the first stage of renunciation is physical. To understand it, theFour Purusharthas of classical Indian tradition should be understood. The first one isDharma religious conduct , the second is Artha the desire to earn money , thethird is the karma to enjoy life physically and the last is Moksha to make efforts toget salvation.

The scheme of division is the same as in the earlier trines. Brahmacharya Grihastha Vanaprastha Sanyas The first house SecondhouseThird house FourthhouseFifthe house SixthhouseSeventhhouseEighthhouseNinth house TenthhouseEleventhhouseTwelfthhouseIn judging the spiritual importance of each of these houses, these trines should bekept in the mind. It is always important to remember that the lagna and lord must not be ill-placed inthe eighth house, the sixth house or the twelfth house and must not be afflicted bySaturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu particularly through conjunction or aspect.

In such a casethe health may be bad. It is in rare cases thata person with ill health but strong sense of renunciation can be spiritually exalted. But we must proceed on the premise that it is sound health that is the foundation ofeven good spiritual life. The Second HouseThe family environment gives to one some spiritual tendencies, which is what thesecond house represents, being the house of Kutumba or the family one is broughtup in. Faith in religious and spiritual traditions are inherited and also acquiredgenerally from parents.

The second house represents it, besides, also being thehouse of speech. See the planets particularly Jupiter, Venus, Mercury withoutaffliction to examine whether one has the tendency to speak truth or falsehood. Thesecond also being the house of earnings, monetary gains etc. Note — In this respect the role of the twelfth house is more important. The Third HouseThe third house known as the house of valour and courage becomes favorable ifthere is a malefic like Rahu, Saturn, Mars, Ketu in it.

It shows a determination to applyoneself to spiritual practices with strong will. Note — The third house, according to Maharshi Parashara, is the house of upadeshaor religious preaching. The third house also is to be seen for short and quick pilgrimages. According to the Uttrta-kalamrita, the third house represents the part of the palmwhich is between the thumb and the index finger with which many rituals areperformed. The Fourth House The fourth house representing buildings, represents the religious-philanthropicinstitutions one builds and also the trusts one creates or religious, philanthropic andother good trusts with the money one has.

Chart Creator

In the life of an individual the fourth house represents his desire to pursue hisspiritual life in the quiet surroundings of a place, house or ashram with rhythmicregularity. In the case of a yogi it can represent pranayama or breath-control. But ifsuch a house is disturbed, such persons find that by moving from one place toanother only they can follow their spiritual pursuits.

The Fifth HouseAn important principle of Hindu astrology is that if a planet aspects its own house,that house gets strengthened. This should be seen very closely in the case of the fifthhouse around which revolves the realization of the potency of mantra, yantra,because this house is important in two ways: in the case of the individual whosehoroscope is being examined, it represents the spiritual merit of his past life and inthe case of his father, it is the house of his spiritual merit of his present life.

It is a good fifth house that bestows viveka or a sense of discrimination and deepspiritual wisdom born both of the reading of scriptures and spirituals practices. The Sixth HouseIn the life of a spiritual practitioner fifteen types of distractions are normal. Moreoften than not these take a person away from the desired spiritual path. To overcomesuch distractions, a malefic in the sixth house is always good. As it is, a malefic in thesixth house is good for ensuring sound health and the tenacity to overcomeobstacles. In spiritual life this house helps in developing one pointed concentration.

The Seventh HouseThis house of sex is also the house of sex-sublimination. It is when the kundalinipower rises high that sexual lust gets transformed into love and a sadhak feel thespiritual vibrations of the rising kundalini. The Eighth HouseIt should be noticed that the fourth house is the house of spirituality and salvation inthe trines given before. It is true that this house also represents agonieswhich must include spiritual disappointments in the act attaining a blissful state ofsamadhi.

The Ninth HouseNext to the fifth house, the house on which all astrologers lay greatest stress forspiritual development is the ninth house. Yet, there is a controversy amongastrologers whether it is the ninth house or the fifth house that is to be seen for thespiritual merit of the past life. While majority of astrologers see the fifth house for the The ninth house therefore is to beexamined for all acts of penance, pilgrimage, worship of gods.

It is the house which represented the last stage of full spiritual development, afterwhich one can become a guru or a spiritual guide. This house also is for father, whois one of the early gurus of a child. It is for this reason that the Sanskrit saying, "Matri devo bhava" let mother be thegoddess and "Pitro devo bhava" let father be the god is the eternal lesson childrenare taught to lay poper foundation of their spiritual life.

Inferentially, those who arecruel to their parents cannot hope to be spiritually successful in their practices. Thisis a harsh spiritual reality which will not be palatable to many modern young people. Yet an astrologer cannot afford to overlook this. The Tenth HouseThe tenth house is the house of those deeds which are noticed. A person who haspotentised a mantra and has become a guru, wins social recognition through hisdeeds even misdeeds.

It is for this reason that Jupiter, the greatest benefic ispreferred most in this house for holy deeds because the tenth house is the house ofreligious, spiritual and ritualistic deeds. Note — In the case of a guru the tenth house shows the quality of his deeds, alongwith the lord of the tenth house. The Eleventh HouseIn a spiritual sense, the eleventh house is a very enigmatic house. Benefics in it willattract one to worship of many gods and great scriptural scholarship and authorship.

Many planets in it will bring, as donations to a guru, lot of money as the eleventhhouse is the last of the kama triangle or desires.

ॐ गुरवे नमः

Such desires can be good and evil. The eleventh house is thus the house of the last of the temptations a religious personhas to face, which must be overcome to reach the final destination, salvation. The Twelfth HouseThe twelfth house, the condition of the twelfth lord and Ketu are the salvation givingfactors.

A bad twelfth house can ruin all the spiritual promises of an otherwise goodhoroscope. Note — What has been given so far here is only a bare outline of the spiritualpromise inherent in a horoscope. These very promises are to be examined in greaterdetails through many other finer analysis. The use of Vimshamsha one-twentiethdivision horoscope will have to be brought into use.

Note — A safe and sound method which an astrologer can adopt is to make aproper use of the navamsha one ninth division of a horoscope and examine thefifth and the ninth lords and houses of navamsha and then the twelfth lord. Togetherwith all this, the most important factor in the spiritual evolution of a person is to seewhat dasha in Vimshottari sequence one has got in life. The most favourableperiods are the periods of the fifth and the ninth lords.

What is to seen from which HouseSo far what has been given is the spiritual aspects associated with each house fromthe lagna. These days more and more people have generally two additional questionsto ask, the first about their spiritual life and the other about their ailments. The other traditionally associated significations with the houses have been given indetail in many books, fortunately now available in translation in English, But it isnecessary to sound a warning here, do not take any of the interpretations given inthem as being dogmatic and unalterable.

This mistake is committed by some Indianswho do not make an in-depth study of astrology and study other techniques. Whatare given in these classics are aids to predictions, not predictionsthemselves. Keeping this forewarning in the mind it will be useful to know what eachhouse represents. The LagnaOne is born in a particular sign, which is his lagna and therefore the first house. Hispersonality will partake of the characteristics of those signs, which will be discussedlater. The First HouseThe first house represents the physical body, good or ill-health, the early part of life,the personal development of the child and the character as a whole.

The Third HouseTraditionally, this house is to be seen for brothers and sisters, short journeys, lettersand quick writing. But these days it is necessary to examine it for sports, artistictalents, and business agencies also. Mother, land, conveyances, happiness are the traditional subject to be seen from thefourth house. The Fifth HouseIt is the house of education though some take the fourth house as education intelligence, children and the power of discrimination. The Sixth HouseDiseases, opposition, debts, injuries are the negative factors associated with thishouse.

The Seventh HouseTraditionally, marriage but these days living together, therefore wife, lover, sex lifeare associated with this house. These days, it should be seen for business and business partnership, foreigncountries, and even settlement abroad and death. The Eighth HouseLegacies, inheritance, sudden financial gains, wills are the positive side of this housewhile the negative side is long illnesses, cause of death, sexual and conjugal life.

The Ninth HouseThe father though the tenth house should also be seen spiritual tendencies,devotion, learning, pilgrimages, association with legal and religious personalities arethe commonest factors seen from this house. It being the house of luck, a good ninthhouse improves a horoscope. The Eleventh HouseAll types of gains, titles, honors, elder brothers and sisters, business profits are to beseen. The Twelfth HouseLoss, expenditure, waste etc. These days, foreign journeys, getting settled in a foreign country, trade with a foreign For spiritual practitioners this is the most important house for the promise of spirituallife and salvation.

As has been stated, a long list of events and things to be seen from each of thehouse can be compiled in hundreds of pages. What has been given here is for day today use only. Useful Information About RashisIn making predictions about various events the most essential information that mustbe made use of is being given in descriptive form partly and in chart-form, partly.

In making subtle predictions, the information is made use of but at an advancedstage of an astrological career. More than seven decades ago, an old astrologer hadgiven in writing to a famous Indian not to go to hills for some years. But that couldnot be avoided as the Indian had to go there to perform his duties. His car slid downthe hill and he received multiple fractures. That Indian was running the sub-period ofa planet in Simha. Similarly, the rashis are given directions, colour, caste and it is also explained howthey rise.

The last bit of information about the nature of their rise is made use of forpredicting how quickly any work is done when a question is put in prashna astrology horary how soon a work will be done or not and whether there is any promise ofauspicious results. Similarly the quality of a rashi, Sattwic Spirituality Rajasic activity and Tamasic inertia is also useful in psychological-spiritual, mental and other characteristics thatmanifest in the mahadasha and the antardasha running at a given time.

Expanded Memory TabletD. Earlier, part of Memory Tablet was given, P. Now the full Memory Table is beingwhich I have taught successfully to thousands of students in India and in U. The second half of thememory tablet is D. D for Dhana or wealth, monetary gains, the lords that should be seen for this are ofthe first, second, fifth, ninth and eleventh and of course cords of those houses.

Soagainst five malefics there are only four benefics, Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and theMoon.

There are manyways of examining it.

The simplest principle is to see the combination of the lords oftrikonas trines and kendras quadrants. First remember the following three points It has been stated earlier that trines are known as Lakshmi sthanas or houses ofwealth. It has also been stated the quadrants are Vishnu sthanas or the houses ofprotection. It has also been stated that the lagna lord is the lord both of the trikona and thekendra. Therefore the Rajayogas for each horoscope will have to be seen thus.

Lagna lord and the fourth lord. Lagna lord and the fifth lord. Lagna lord and the seventh lord. Lagna lord and the ninth lord. Lagna lord and the tenth lord. The fourth lord and the fifth lord.

Importance of the NavamshaIn Hindu Astrology what is apparent in the birth horoscope may improve ordeteriorate in the navamsha. It is never safe to make any prediction without usingthe navamsha. So we will go deeper from here onwards. Herethe so-called evil houses must have new meaning.

What is necessary to stress is notto undermine the importance of houses other than the kendras and trikonas. Directional StrengthOut of the six-fold strength of planets popular in Hindu Astrology, we shall make useonly of directional strength here, which is to be seen as follows Jupiter and Mercury are strong in the lagna.

The Moon and Venus are strong in the fourth house. Saturn is strong in the seventh house. The Sun and Mars are strong in the tenth house. Rahu and Ketu in the kendras behave like kendra lords and in trikonas behave liketrikona lords. If they are aspected by Jupiter they acquire beneficence. Importance of the DashaIn view of the importance of making careers early in life, it is of utmost important tosee what dasha one gets at the right time for achieving what one has achieved.

Acheck-list is being given here. See what are the Rajayogas in a horoscope, by which what is meant is thecombination of kendra and trikona lords. See whether the planets promising high things in the birth horoscope havedeteriorated in the navamsha or have improved. Look out for new meanings in the changed times in which we are living. Note the planets with directional strength.

See what is the mahadasha and antar-dasha or major and sub-periods running ata given time. Wherever necessary use the sub-sub-period also. Some illustrations will be givenin the book. Last will come transit of planets. To give exaggerated importance to transits is tomistake the feather of a bird for the bird itself. Note — A planet which remains at the same place as in the birth horoscope is calledvargottama planet also. Therefore add vargottama planets also. Do not forget to examine "A" arishta first, before launching into a prediction.

Note — An astrologer is not infallible. Yet a sound and detailed analysis of ahoroscope will give to him a life average of eighty percent correct predictions. Often,I have given predictions about big events, overlooking the "X" element and gonewrong. In USA those who expect one hour of reading from an astrologer arethemselves responsible for driving an astrologer into a wrong position. Sometimes, ahoroscope may take hours of verification for its correctness.

This fact is forgotten bymany people who blame the astrologer without being sure that their horoscope iscorrectly cast. Rajayoga IllustrationsExample One In this horoscope all planets not given , note the following feature The Moon is in his own house. Mars is exalted. Venus has acquired directional strength being in the fourth house. Navamsha —1. In the navamsha Saturn gets exalted. Jupiter also gets exalted. Venus is in its own house. Dasha Sequence —He got the dasha of Venus of twenty years from the age of fifteen years.

No wonderhe has made a very good career as a big government officer in Government of India. Example Two Rajayogas —1. Mars the lagna lord combines with the fifth lord Jupiter and forms a Rajayoga. The exchange of the exalted Moon, with Venus is another Rajayoga. Mars and Mercury are in their own houses while the Moon the lord of ninth house luck , is exalted.

Rahu and Ketu and the Sun the tenth lord of the birth horoscope arevargottama, as they have not changed their positions. Saturn and the Moon occupy their own house. Dasha Sequence —From the age of eight he got the dasha of Rahu of full eighteen years. Rahuwith exalted ninth lord, involved in an exchange with Venus, joins in promoting theRajayoga. More important is the fact that Rahu is vargottama. He next got the full sixteen years of Jupiter who is involved in the Rajayoga as wehave seen. He made his career in the period of Rahu and went on rising higher andhigher in the period of Jupiter.

Saturn again contributed to his rise but at the very last stage halted his progresswhen he could not reach the topmost position. Saturn with Ketu aspected by Mars the sixth lord opposition gave him sinceexalted Moon also aspects Saturn technically, a higher post but it was not thecoveted post which he wanted.

Why did this happen? Here comes the importance of the sub-sub-period. In February when thiscrucial decision was to have been taken he was passing through:The major period of SaturnThe sub-period of Jupiter andThe sub-sub-period of Mercury. Sanyasa yoga : This yoga happens in when 4 or more planets are present in a horoscope while one of the planets is connected with the 10th house known as karma sthan.

Karam meaning work, duty. Mostly this combination should occur in 1st, 4th, 8th, 11th and 12th house. Muni yoga : this is yoga occurs when ascendant of the navamsa chart and ascendant lord of the birth chart are together in the birth chart. This is the yoga of Munis. Muni simply means spiritual person. Someone who is naturally attacked to life of spiritual desire and has no desire for money, home, family or status.

Moksha yoga : This yoaga occurs when Sun, Moon and ascendant lord along with Ketu are in 1st, 8th or 12th house. This is the yoga of a person who is living their last physical life and will gain access to the 64th dimension. Virinchi yoga : This yoga occurs when Jupiter and Saturn are in kendra in good strong signs while 5th lord is in the trikon or kendra houses. Such yoga gives indication of spiritual life and wanting to leave material world behind.

But, not all planets may give promised success as a spiritual soul. Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and Sun are 4 planets that extremely disciplined regarding spiritual practices. Jupiter is the spiritual guru, Saturn is the planet that breaks the ego down and humbles a person, Mars shows great solider like discipline to wake up each morning, do proper yoga, meditation, and sticking to a strict diet while Sun is the atmakaraka and the karaka of the soul which is everything for spiritual evolution.
