1st House: Self, health, physical body, longevity, body appearance

2nd House: Accumulated wealth, kutumba(family one is born in), early childhood, speech, food you eat. It is also a maraka house.

3rd House: Co-borns especially younger siblings, self-efforts, hobbies, courage, short travels, neighbors

4th House: Happiness(on a spiritual level inner happiness), mother, home/property, vehicles

5th House: Children, education, emotions, level of intelligence, speculation, mantras

12th House: Moksha, loss, disease, hospitals, dreams/sleep, expenditure, foreign travels, export

Dhanayoga in 12th House

Combinations of Rajayogas and Dhanayogas occurring in trik houses acquire a new meaning in today’s day and age. If we apply the same principle as written in shastras we can go wrong. Therefore, as said by Sh. K.N Rao apply principles from classics liberally and not literally.

Lets us understand this with an example:

Chart of a businessman born in 1964

Notice the following yogas:

Sasha Yoga: Saturn in own house(mooltrikona) in 10th

Malavya Yoga: Venus in own house in lagna as lagna lord. Notice the degrees of Venus and ascendant

He has concentration of planets in the 12th House: Mer(R), Jupiter and exalted Sun

This concentration of planets in the 12th house forms rajayoga and multiple dhanayogas aspected by a yogakaraka Saturn which is in turn in its mooltrikona sign. Also, notice the exchange of 11th and 12th lords. This makes the 12th house very powerful.

Let us look at the dasha pattern along with navamsa:

Career: Second half of Dasha of Rahu was uneventful for him as he did a lot of hardwork but had very little to show for it. He was doing a business related to educational materials.

Jupiter Mahadasha: Post 2000 as he was in the beginning of the dasha of Jupiter he started to get contracts for exports. Notice this Jupiter participating in all the dhanayogas and rajayogas and in the 12th house of exports.

For Taurus lagna, Jupiter is a malefic as it owns the eighth and the eleventh houses and placed in the twelfth. Throughout the Jupiter dasha he got one contract after another and built a high sustaining business around it and has earned in millions.

The blemish of Jupiter came to him as a health issue in Jupiter Venus period which was very serious for a couple of years, but he overcame that and now is in good health. Therefore, Jupiter did give its effects as the eighth lord and Venus AD is the sixth lord as well.

He continues to do better in his Saturn Mahadasha which is also the yogakaraka.

This is an example of Dhanayogas and Rajayogas in the 12th house giving extremely positive results for the native.

Dashamsha confirms the rise as all the planets involved are strong and participate in multiple Rajayogas.

Foreign Travels- Example Charts

Discussion on charts that settled away from the country of birth.

Parameters: The parameters have been explained in detail in my article- Foreign Settlement, link below in case you need to go through it.

Chart 1

This horoscope is of a male from New Delhi, India and migrated to Canada in 2015 in the dasha of Saturn Venus.

He has 6 planets in moveable rasis.

Rahu is the 4th house also gives a promise of leaving home and settling away.

Venus the antardasha lord is in the 9th house of long journeys.

Saturn Venus in the 3-9 axis gave the result in its dasha.

Let us check the chaturthamsa or D4

In chaturthamsa, his 4th lord Saturn is in the 12 house and it is the Mahadasha lord.

Venus the Antardasha lord is in the 3rd house of change/resettlement.

He went on the basis of education, can you justify from his main chart the connection of his education and foreign countries.

12th Lord Mercury aspect on the 5th house is the static promise in the rasi chart. It repeats from Moon as Moon is in the lagna.

Chart 2

This male student went to a foreign country for studying Bio Technology.

Venus in the 5th house as 5th lord is also the 12th lord.

Dasha of travel- Rahu Moon

Rahu is the significator of everything foreign and Moon is in Rahu Ketu axis. Moon is also in the eighth house.

He will follow this dasha with the dasha of Jupiter, Jupiter as 10th lord in 11th is connected to 12th lord Venus signifying career in a foreign country.

Chaturthamsa Analysis: Rahu Moon again conjunct in itself is enough, they are also aspected by 9th Lord Venus.

Chart 3

4th lord and House afflicted. Left home country in the dasha of Mercury Rahu.

Mercury with 12 lord in Rahu Ketu Axis and Rahu is the significator.

D4/Chaturthamsa Analysis:

Dasha of Mercury Rahu in D4 is connected with D4’s 12th lord as well.

Chart 4

Female went abroad to study, now has a property and settled there.

4th Lord aspected by 12th Lord.

She went in the dasha of Saturn Ketu, can it get an easier than this. Saturn in the 12th and Ketu aspected by 12th lord and itself in the 9th house.

Let us check her D4

4th Lord Moon aspected by 12th lord Jupiter and dasha of Saturn Ketu gave the result.

Chart 5

Born in India and now a Canadian Citizen.

10th-12th Lords exchange depicting career in a foreign country.

12th lord aspect on the 4th house is the static promise as well.

He has excelled in his career(exalted 10th lord) and has bought a house in a foreign country too.

CaseStudy: Alpayu

ALPAYU

In this Case Study I will discuss a horoscope in which a young man died at the age of 34 with liver disease.

Birth Chart

Male born in New Delhi in 1983

 Alpayu

 

 

This is a classic example of a Balarishta Chart. Moon in 6th House with 12th lord is afflicted by malefics Sat&Mars. Moreover, Moon is also the Lagna Lord making this a severe arishta combination.

Now, let us check this moon in Navamsha and Drekkana and Dwadashamsha

AlpayuD9D3alpD12alp

In all 3 charts Moon which is also the lagna lord is severely afflicted showing no respite with regards to the health of the native.

In such cases with severe Balarishta combinations the survival of the child upto 12 years is difficult, especially since he will run the dasha of Moon from 1989 to 1999. But there is also Balarishta cancellation combinations because of which he survived during young age.

Jupiter Aspect on Lagna and ShuklaPaksha Night Birth are two of the major reasons.

Exalted Saturn as 8th Lord with 11th lord in a kendra add some years to the native’s age but only to some extent.

This Horoscope came to me in 2015 with health complications and severe career issues.

He was running Sadesati as well with Poor Ashtakvarga scores in 1st and last phase of 2.5 years.

He was warned with severe health conditions in future if he doesn’t improve his lifestyle as he had taken to drinking heavily with a faulty liver. Longevity wasn’t calculated or warned.

He passed away in Jan2017 in the dasha of RaVen. Notice Venus is the chiddra graha as it is the 8th lord of D3 placed in 8th house in D3. It is also placed with exalted 7th lord in D1 making Saturn potent maraca in this case.

Let’s use the PAM method to check his longevity.

Note: PAM method is not a full proof method, you must use other ayu calculation methods along with and the Horoscope only will show you the best picture.

For Healh/Longevity Study

Lagna/Lagna Lord

Moon

3H/3 Lord

8th House/8th Lord

10th House/10th Lord

And Saturn.

Study these combinations along with dasha and transits.

Here as we can see Lagna Lord and Moon are under severe arishta.

Only the condition of 8th lord and Saturn is good enhancing his age to 34 years.

Now let us see PAM method,

To understand this method in detail, refer to my video with link below:

LagnaLord: Dual

8th Lord: Moveable

Result: Alp

Lagna: Moveable

Moon: Dual

Result: Alp

 

Therefore, PAM method signals to Alp Ayu 0-36 years but check main Horoscope to make sure for harans and Bharans and come to a final conclusion.

How to read a Vedic Horoscope? Part 1 First House

 

In this article I am going to discuss from where to start a horoscope and how to read it and eventually predict.

Whenever you see a Horoscope always follow these steps instead of seeing all things at once and getting confused.

Remember the Desh, Kala, Patra before beginning.

Keep the following parameters in mind before judging any house:

  • House/Planets placed in the House.
  • Planets aspecting the house.
  • Lord of the House.
  • Planets Conjunct/aspecting the House Lord.
  • Significator/Karaka of the house.

 

 

  1. LAGNA/ASCENDANT/FIRST HOUSE:

 

Always see the sign rising in lagna first. The personality, physique, nature of a person will resemble that sign.

It is also the First House: First House represents Self, physical body, health, longevity, head, hair, brain.

taurus-ascendant

For e.g. If Taurus is rising in lagna then immediately think of qualities of a Taurus and those characteristics will be present in the person.

For learning the characteristics of any sign remember its image. Like Taurus is a Bull.

taurus_bronze

The person will be strongly built, will be full of energy, they are patient and steady, bulls are difficult to control once you provoke them but are mostly peaceful.

It is ruled by Venus so they love beauty, luxury and have refined taste.

Taurus is second sign of natural zodiac therefore they are materialistic and like to accumulate.

It is an earthy sign therefore making them practical.

It is a fixed sign making them rigid, and stubborn like a bull. They dislike change.

Like this you combine Sign and House characteristics for each house.

  1. Planet placed in the First House

 

After studying the sign check the planets placed in the lagna/first house. The person will majorly take on the characteristics of the planet placed.

For e.g. In Taurus lagna, if Moon is placed in the ascendant i.e.  first house. The person will have a cool temperament, will be good looking, will be creative, love music and art.

Combine characteristics of Moon and First House

Now Moon is in its exaltation sign, so all the good characteristics of Moon will be present in full effect.

Moon is the Third Lord for Taurus ascendant so he will be hardworking, will rise by self-efforts, courageous etc.

  1. Now check what planets aspect Lagna/First House

See what planets aspect lagna, are they malefic or benefic and what lordships they have. It will influence the first house of a person to that effect.

  1. Lagna Lord/ First House Lord

 

Only after checking all above parameters come to lagna lord i.e. Venus in this case.

Check where venus is placed, how is its strength in rasi chart and navamsa chart and concur accordingly. Then check the aspects on Venus and planets conjunct with venus.

For e.g. Venus is in Pisces that is its exaltation sign. Venus will be in 11th house of gains. The person will like to accumulate and will be born in a rich family and will have all the luxuries in life.

 

  1. Check the above planets strength in Navamsa Chart.
  2. Significactor/Karaka of first house: Sun

Always see the condition/strength of the significator a particular house, in this case SUN to come to a conclusion about health.

 

 Similarly, check all other houses and have a basic idea in the back of your mind about each house and planet.

 

Now this was only the Static Promise, for timing and dynamic analysis see the dasha.

See what dasha the person is running and those results will be experienced according to planet’s strength and placement.

 

Last check the Transit. See which houses the slow moving planets aspect to come to a conclusion.

 

Let’s see an example to understand this:

sj

 

This is a female chart. Born in 1966.

Aries rising: Energetic, active, full of energy.

No planet is placed in lagna/ first house.

Saturn aspects lagna: Saturn is a natural malefic and in this case functional malefic as well. Therefore, it afflicts lagna/ first house. The person will have health issues especially in the dasha of Saturn.

Lagna Lord: Mars in twelfth House in a friendly sign but a trik/bad house. Again, indicator of weak health.

Mars is conjunct with Sun and Mer(R).

Sun is the fifth lord. Rajayoga in twelfth House i.e. 5th and Lagna Lord combination. But it is an adverse house.

Mercury is the 3rd and 6th lord (functional malefic) debilited in twelfth house. Now, lagna lord is conjunct with 6th lord again indicating health troubles related to nerves, skin since mercury represents those significations.

Mars is also 8th lord. 6th 8th lords conjunction will give chronic disease.

sjd9

Now in Navamsha Mars moves to scorpio which is its own sign but eighth house of horoscope showing some long lasting disease to body.

Mercury goes to virgo in navamsha which is its exaltation sign, showing Mercury is strong and has inherent strength of giving diseases.

She is always ill and frequently gets hospitalized. It has been a tendency throughout her life since her lagna lord is in twelfth and conjunct with 6th lord.

Other things to consider:

Budh Aditya Yoga

Gajakesari Yoga

Vipareeta Rajyoga

Amala Yoga

Similarly, check all other houses and see then see the dasha and transit and predict.

SadeSati: An Easy Way to Judge Using Ashtakvarga

https://youtu.be/WRokNhOHbn0

In this article I am going to discuss an easy way to Judge SadeSati for a person.This method was taught to us by our teachers at BVB and is mentioned in the book Transit by Col A.K Gour.

Basic Ashtakvarga Knowledge is essential to understand this article.

No wonder I am writing this article on a Saturday. This method involves the use of Ashtakavarga. We need both Sarvastakvarga(SAV) and Bhinnashtakavarga(BAV) charts.

What is SadeSati?

Sadesati is a period of 7.5 years of Saturn Transit over 12th,1st and 2nd Houses from one’s natal Moon.

Saturn takes two and a half years to transit one sign. So when Saturn comes to 12th House from one’s Natal Moon, Sadesati starts. Saturn spends 2.5 years in each house which brings us to a total of 7.5 years.

Now since Saturn is a slow moving planet and is a karaka for miseries and delays its interaction with ones natal moon which represents mind, brings about mental agony and depression. Which leads to depression, frustration during this period. Now this mental agony is always due to something not happening right for you in some physical domain in your chart. The source for that reason lies in the dasha and transit influence of Saturn.

Not all SadeSatis are bad, for this you have to check Ascendant rising and Saturn and Moon’s placement and strength in a chart and also the Dasha running. But since in this article I am gong to explain to check it in  a short way I will straight away move to Ashtakvarga.

Check The Ashtakvarga points in 12th,1st,2nd Houses from moon in SAV and BAV of Moon and Saturn.

For eg: If someone’s Moon is in Scorpio, then check SAV points in Libra Scorpio and Sagittarius. If the SAV points are less then 23(28 is neutral) then the Saturn transit over that rashi is going to be bad.

Now check Moon’s BAV for that rashi. If there are less then 3 points(4 is neutral) especially if there are 0,1,2 points the period is going to be troublesome.

Similiarly check Saturns BAV as well.

Let us understand this with an example:

ss1

Presently Saturn is transiting in Scorpio. It is in second house from this person’s natal Moon. Therefore he started Sadesati when Saturn was in Virgo. His Sadesati will end when Saturn will Transit to Sagittarius in Jan2017.

Now lets understand how his Sadesati will be from Ashtakvarga method.

Tula/Libra is rising with Moon(kemdruma) in it.

Dasha running durin 7.5 years of SadeSati: SatMer, SatKe, SatVen, SatSun,SatMoon.

When Saturn was in Virgo and Scorpio, these period were terrible for him. He was depressed mentally and low on confidence.

Now let us check SAV Chart:

ss2

Points in 12th House from Natal Moon: 17

Points in 1st House from Natal Moon: 31

Points in 2nd House from Natal Moon: 22

BAV Chart of Moon and Saturn:

Points in 12th House from Natal Moon: 3

Points in 1st House from Natal Moon: 5

Points in 2nd House from Natal Moon: 1

 

ss4

Points in 12th House from Natal Moon: 1

Points in 1st House from Natal Moon: 3

Points in 2nd House from Natal Moon: 2

 

Clearly All 3 SAV and BAV charts show weak points in 12th and 2nd houses from Moon and this was the toughest period for the native.

Similarly we can check all sadesati periods from this technique and give a snapshot prediction. But start with Promise, Dasha and then only come to TRANSIT.

 

Foreign Settlement: An Astrological Study

 

How to see foreign travel/settlement in a horoscope?

Staying away from one’s birth place: affliction to 4th house.

There is always some reason due to which a person decides to shift base away from home. The reasons can be many from looking for a better future, unhappiness at home,due to education or career. This brings to our first parameter to check in a horoscope to study settlement abroad:

Fourth House: This house signifies home, happiness, vehicle, property etc. and this house should be afflicted for one to leave his home. This house can either be afflicted or Fourth Lord can be in a poor condition or in 6,8,12.

Houses which signify travel in a horoscope are:

3rd House: Short Travels

7th House: Foreign Journeys

8th House: Signifies travel by sea or in nowadays air travel.

9th House: Long Distance journeys

12th House: Everything related to foreign lands.

Now, first we have to see the promise for foreign journey in a chart:

PAC of above lords especially 4th/12th lords signify change in house or house abroad.

If one goes abroad on career basis his 10th/12th lords are related.

If one goes abroad for education his 5th/12th houses/lords are connected.

In general terms any of the above combination can lead to foreign travel.

We have to confirm all above factors in D4 as well.

 

Now the most important factor is the dasha:

It will give us the dynamic analysis and tell us WHEN?

Dasha of all above lords or Antardasha of any planet connected to 12th house/lord in D1/D4 can give foreign travel if the promise exists.

Generally, Rahu/Ketu dasha and fast moving planets dasha also gives travels.

 

 

How to differentiate between different aspects in a particular house?

Now, if a person has 10th and 12th lord’s combination and he is running the concerned dasha, how will we differentiate whether he will lose his job, change a job or just simply go abroad?

For this we need to check D4 and D10 simultaneously. If the antardasha lord signifies change in all three charts i.e. D1, D4 and D10 then we can be certain of transfer to a foreign country or job opportunity abroad.

 

Example 1:

We will understand these parameters with an example:

1

 

 

In this chart 4th house is afflicted.

4th house is aspected by 12th lord Saturn.

There is an Exchange between 10th and 12th lords, which gives us an indication that this person can have a career abroad or deal with import/export or IT, but since his 4th house is also connected with 12th lord he went abroad.

Went abroad in dashas of Ra Ven and then again in Ra Moon.

Presently settled abroad.

 14

In D4 Scorpio is rising.

Saturn which is the 12th lord of D1 is placed in 4th house of D4.

There is no direct connection of D4 4th and 12th lords independently.

His 9th and 12th lords of D4 re connected and both times he went in the dasha of these planets.

 

Example 2:

 2

4th house is again aspected by 12th lord and again 12th lord is in the 10th house.

This person went abroad in the dasha of SatMerc and lived there for 8 years.

24

12th lord of D1 again is in 4th house of D4.

12th lord of D4 aspects 4th house.

He should go abroad again in the next AD of Rahu.

 

Clearly, combination of 4th 12th houses in D1 has given its results.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Case Study 01: Vehicular Accident/D-16

Vehicular Accident

s

This individual met with a bike accident in the dasha of Jup/Mar/Rahu.

Promise: Connection of 4 and 6 Houses/lords is one of the criteria for vehicular accidents. In this case 6th lord Sat is in the fourth house.

So the promise of accident is there.

Venus the karaka is comfortably sitting in its mooltrikona sign but is in paapkartari also aspected by jup the eighth lord.

Check D-16 as 4th house in D-1 can mean many other things aswell, so we confirm in D16 as it is the chart for conveyances.

d

Here 4th lord of D1 and 6th lord of D1 are conjuct in the 8th house which is the 6th house of D1 confirming the chances of accident.

*Studying D1 lords in D16 shows us the picture more clearly in this case.

Now the question comes When?

Well, it can be in the antardashas of Saturn(6th Lord) or Mars(4th Lord). Both are in the 8th house in D16.

Dasha at the time of accident: Jupiter/Mars/Rahu. This individual met with a bike accident and damaged his left knee and feet for life and underwent 5 major surgeries.

Jupiter: Eighth lord of D1 also a maraka as it is sitting in the seventh house.

Mars: Planets do give results as per their natural karakatwas, in this case Antardasha of Mars led to an accident. Mars is the lord of fourth house of vehicles where 6th lord is placed.

Rahu’s Pd gave the final blow as it is in the 8th house in D1 and aspected by Mars/Mer.

JupMars dasha is a dasha of 6/8 axis in D16 with the 6th lord Mars aspecting Jupiter with its eighth aspect.

This individual has to be careful in Sat/Mars Dasha too as there is a chance of another accident.

On the day of transit 6 planets were in the second house from lagna of D1 i.e in Virgo aspecting the 22nd dreshkona.

New things to learn in this example:

Technically the dasha of Jup/Mars should have been excellent for him as it was his yogakaraka dasha but it wasn’t the case.

D16 gave us a clearer picture about the accident.

How to read a Navamsa chart?

“If Birth Chart is a tree, Navamsa chart is the fruit in that tree.”

K.N.Rao

Navamsa is the ninth division of a horoscope and is one of the most important divisional chart to be studied along with the  D-1/ main chart. In the Vimshopak Bala given by Parashara  it is given 3 points after shastiamsha and the birth chart. Shastiamsha/D60 is given the highest weight-age of 4 points higher than the birth chart which has 3.5 points.

Clearly D60 is the most important chart but since it changes every two minutes the accuracy of its lagna is doubtful as in most of the charts, the timing is off by a few minutes.

The Birth Chart changes every two hours and so many children are born in the same state during those two hours, each having same lagna. Their fates will change according to the paatra but not all will have similar destiny. That is where navamsa and other divisional charts come into picture.

Navamsa Chart has to be read in following ways:

  1. To check the strength of a planet: The most important use of the navamsa chart is to check if the planet is really strong. If a planet is exalted in the birth chart and debilitated in the navamsa then the planet’s inherent strength is not there. The planet will only give good results in the first half of its dasha and will give poor results in his next half and vice versa. This is the reason why we should also check the planet’s dignity and strength in navamsa before reading a chart.
  2. Read it independently: Some astrologers read it as a mirror chart to the main chart and confirm the events. If D1 and D9 show the same event for eg: In a students chart, in D1 5th lord has connection with 12th house/lord and the dasha is also running then the education can be outside the home city(one of many things). If the same combination of the D9 lords repeats then it is a certainty.
  3.  Marriage Chart: This chart is read independently to know all the attributes of spouse and to time the marriage of an individual as well.
  4. RasiTulya Navamsa: It is the super imposition of navamsa chart over rasi chart, i.e. keep the rasi chart lagna as it is and place the planets in the horoscope as per their positions in the rasi chart. It tells us how the lords have shifted in the navamsa and can be used to predict as well.

Therefore it is important to read the Navamsa Chart/D9 always along with D1.
