Various points

 

Today many books both classical texts and modern books give effects of grahas in bhavas. Unfortunatelly, they prove useless in most cases to all readers, and worthless in practical use. Many modern authors critisize the classical authors as discarding the effects of planets in houses useless. I am not going into details here, but tradition teaches the correct method as how to use these results, and with a proper explanation from a Guru all effects will prove correct and everything will fall into a place. For example, Saravali teaches that Chandra in Lagna gives happiness (Sukha). However Shri Ram has Chandra in Lagna and he was unhappy in the middle part of the life. Why was it so? Shani was placed in 4th house in his chart which indicates dukhada or sorrow and banishment from home. That implies that Chandra in Lagna gives happiness only in childhood, while in middle age it will give happiness provided that benefic planet is placed in 4th house. In this manner, all classical texts should be examined. On the other hand, modern authors do nothing to improve it and give better description and effects of planets. So, to again, modern books either copy-paste the classical text and again give information which again prove usless and incorrect in practice. If you do not trust me, check the number of editions and books and see yourself.

Where is the clue? Tradition teaches certain effects of planets in houses, where very grounded and common-sense rules underline the principle. Once these principle are revealed, evertyhing starts beautifully to unfold and fall into a place and in practical use in horoscope, the picture starts to emerge. Let us give some effects of planets in 12th house to show the point:

1.Surya in Marana Karaka Stana in 12th house, though it gives good health. It prevents losses and punishment, makes person stay at home (will not go abroad), prevents from bad luck, bondages, and gives strong mind, emotions as a result of blessings of Shiva. General tendency is that a person will marry a powerful partner and the reson for marriage may not be as obvious as shown.

2. Chandra in 12th house is the blessing of Devi. A person is strong in body and mind, healthy, easily recovers from disease, has good sleep and rest, powerful subconscious mind and intuition, good mind reader, and prevents from serious bodily damages. Mother will bless the person, though she may be unhappy around the birthtime of a person. A person will give to family and children, yet will not care too much for friends, unless they are close as family members.

3. Mangal in 12th house- Marriage is damaged as well as marital happiness, chooses a bad partner, troubles on long journeyes, bad or slow recovery from sickness, bad sleep, subconsicous anger, physcological issues, loss of initiative and executive ability, a lot of properties which may be lost or wasted away, may be defeated by enemy, unless 6th house does not show otherwise. There are a lot of acquantances but hardly any true friends. If there are some, a person will loose them. Death of a sister or close female friend. IF a person worships Devata of Mangala, a person is blessed with sharp mind and good speech, intelligence and learning, which may prove so particularly during the dasha of Mangal. Depending on the strength of Mangala, this dasha would give litigations, bad luck due to fights, a lot of money which may be spent away, rash decisions which may invovle a person into trouble, marital disharmony and troubles with children etc. If a horoscope is well inclinced for spirituality, this dasha may give a lot of learning and blessings of powerful Guru. In this way, a completelly novel apporach is required for understanding grahas in bhavas...

To be continued...

Let us examine one among many principles to be used here. We all know or should know two important significations of the 5th house which we shall use as an example. These are Mantra and Chitta.

1. Mantra is the sound which can invoke certain Devata and protect the mind.

2. Chitta is the use of database of the mind

Now, we can see the impact of all 9 grahas on these two significations of the 5th house. We can do it by Guna, Nature, Tatva, karakatva etc

Surya is satva guna graha so by default all satvic Grahas will use the mantras in a positive way, and be attracted to it, while chitta will function well and mind will use the awareness in a positive and nice manner. Among these, Guru is Shabda (sound) and he is a real vachaspati or commander of Mantra. No wonder, each classical text suggests Guru placement in this house as related to blessing or worship of Lord Shiva. Chandra as chitta graha among satvic grahas will act very good for future and use the resources for excellent future planning. Shukra as a karaka of affection and mental image, can use mantra in a visual manner, and create an image of devata with a bhakti or worship towards it. However, regarding Mantra, Shukra can use all kinds of mantras being Rajas graha for selfish use. She has to learn the Mantra Shastra from Shabda Brahmin Guru, as in puranic story. So Rajas grahas need the touch of Guru to be able to understand the mantra shastra. Among Satva graha Chandra in 5th house does not have respect for Mantra Shastra, as Tara who was thinking about Chandra while her husband Guru meditated. Being illigitimate child fo such union, Budha is not conducive to Mantra, unless he is accepted and taught by Brihaspati (touch of unafflicted Guru over 5th house Budha). In this way, we cannot except the mere fact that some classical texts state that Budha in 5th house is to give knowledge of mantras. We should ad- Yes/ But Unafflicted guru has to give dristi or yuti to it. Tamas grahas are apsoulutelly bad in this house. Mangal will do sadhana only out of anger, and frustration and he does not beleive in mantras but in weapons. However, due to agni tatva, Mangal with good guidance *influcenc of Guru, can give considerable knowledge in Mantra Shastra. As far as the chitta is concerned, the mind will be led towards fighting, rashness etc. Normally, Tamas grahas cannot do anything good, since they damage chitta, cause a loss of memory (shani) or subconsious mistakes and wrong judgment (ketu and mangal) or delussions (Rahu),unless they are in own sign, multrikona sign or exaltation sign. In this case, there is a consciousness and awareness which is higher than ordinary placement, however the quality of the guna is not goint to change...

 

There are many different and opposite opinions about these yogas today. Some astrologers discard the existance of this Yoga, while those who accept them disagree about their formation and effects. In my tradition, we do beleive that the Yoga exist, however, there are very secret teachings whitout which this yoga becomes impossible to understand. There are places on the net, where the effects and formation of the Yoga was correctly explained, yet the proper use of yoga was not correctly explained, or it was given in a very superficial manner. Also, kindly do not confuse this yoga with Sarpa (Bhujanga) Yoga which is a part of Nabhas (dala) yoga, which has altogether different meaning and explanation, and cannot be understood without understanding of what is nabhas.

1. Kalasarpa Yoga is formed when Rahu leads the group of planets (all planets are between Ketu and Rahu)

2. Kalamrita Yoga is formed when Ketu leads the group of planets (all planets are between Rahu and Ketu)

Most astrologers agree that Yoga is broken when a planet is with the node, and when there are planets in lagna or 7th axis/satya peetha/

Misconceptions about the Yoga

1. When seen the Yoga, most astrologers autmotaically declare that in the case of broken yoga, a person will come to the satya peetha point and become spiritual (kalamrita) or materially prosper (kala sarpa). This is unfortunatelly wrong, and it will never work in all cases. If you do not trust me, take 20 horoscopes of people with these yogas, and examine their life. You will definitelly fail. However, please, keep something in your mind. When these Yogas exist people would normally in one way or another be intereseted in what is so commonly defined as " sprirituality" today. Today, it is enough that people take interest in phylosophy or read some book, or even do some Yoga and meditation and people have an image of this person to be spiritual. This is far from it, and please go into shastra definitions of spirituality first.

2. There is a trick in this Yoga, so it can reverse, so what we see as a Kalasarpa, may in reality function as Kalamrita and vice versa. This segment is taught in detail in Devaguru Brihaspati centres. This can altaughether mislead an astrologer and all predicition and remedial measures may go in vain

3. The term "broken" Kalasarpa and Kalamrita Yoga also carries a lot of different interpretations and misconceptions. I was taught that the broken kalasarpa may actually mean that a person start going towards bhoga or material direction and then leave it and turns spiritual. On the other hand broken Kalamrita may imply that a person turns towards spirituality and end up leaving it , changing direction towards marriage ets. These two paths may alternate depending on several factors which need to be checked in the chart.

4. If the Yoga is not "broken"  , the big puzzle remains as what is the way out. Astrologers are mostly silent about it.

The timing of this Yoga is impossible unless this rules are known. Very helpful tool in timing this Yoga is Rahu-Ketu Gochar, Guru progression, Kala Chakra, Navamsa and Shula Dasha.

4. There are certain grahas in particular chart of KSY and KMY which need to be focused. By examining their strength, the whole effect of Yoga may be reversed and changed. Without this knowledge, a reading a KSY and KMY chart can be superficial without real understanding. I have been told not once by my Guru to keep silent about the nodes, until the right time comes. Nowdays, the nodes are not in a good mood towards Guru, so I will continue in a near future...

My intention to initiate this is to draw more attention to these specific chart, where a real effort to understand them is required by all of us.

Character

There are a few steps to quickly see whether a person is a good or bad person. This is not only useful in judgement of a character and remedial measures suggested, but I was prompted to write on this subject, since many people contacted me privately asking how to see whether a person is really sincere and good or not

FIRST STEP

1. Malefic planet in lagna gives bad personality. Choices and decisions are bad and intelligence is misguided.

2. Surya in Lagna will show the satvic nature fully if aspected by Guru. If Surya is aspected by malefics a person will be knowledagble and intelligent, yet he or she will be of bad tamper, cruel, sadistic and of abusive nature. They will always think that they know of everything, which is of course wrong.

3. Benefics in lagna are good. Budha and Shukra create a bit selfish and overenjoying nature (greedy rajas grahas), yet theyb will never hurt others delibratelly, as is the case with malefics. Budha also becomes excellent if aspected by Guru. Waxing Chandra, and Guru are excellent.

IF THERE ARE NO PLANETS CHECK THE SIGN IN LAGNA AND PLACEMENT OF LAGNESHA. Meena, karka and dhanu are satvic signs of pure akash tatva and are the best. Rajasic signs are good but greedy, tamasic signs are bad for the character of a person.

NEXT STEP

1. Check the 4th house of purity and faith. Benefics in 4th house give good heart, tolerance, faith, while malefics give the opposite.

2. Chandra and Shukra are excellent and give compassion and love for people. Guru is best in the value of tolerance, while other malefics are bad. Surya gives cruelty and selfishness unless influenced by Guru.

3.If there are no planets check the signs as per the same procedure.

Now with these two steps we can have the following combination.

1. Benefic infleunces on Lagna and 4th house, good nature and personality. If there are no planets, then signs will give the same.

2. Malefic infleunces give a bad character. If both lagna and 4th house have a malefic inside, or one has a malefic and another has malefic sign, a person is a cheater, cruel and abusive.

3. If there are mixed infleunces, in the Lagna, judge the  stronger. Strengten the benefics since it will block the negative traits of a malefic.

4. If there are mixed infleunces in the 4th house, and Lagna has no malefic in it nor is of a malefic sign, then a person is of good character, but is cheated by others.

Single Benefic planet in Lagna or in 4th house is sufficent to block the malefic infleunces.

THIRD STEP

1.Check the placement of the moon in the Sign and position of Dispositor. If it is debilitated a person has bad and negative thoughts. The same holds true if it is badly placed or in dustana.

2. Check the planets conjoined Chandra. If they are only malefic, a person had bad thoghts and character.

This is the simple procedure where in three steps one can judge the quality of a character. These concepts are based on Gunas and Nitti.

There are only three satva grahas and they are: Surya, Chandra and Guru.

Surya is not the absolute truth and its truth is based on Yama, Niyama and other rules created by the governance. For example, in some countries, women may be stoned by people for certain acts, and the law or government approves of it. The Surya which follows the law and sends Mangal to enforce the law can approve of this since the rule and law must be obeyed. Can we say then that Surya infleuncing the character of a person gives wise and good character. No..

Surya truth is only two pada, or 50 % where purity and intelligence is seen, yet a person may approve of very bad things if the law or rule says so. The houses ruled by Surya will be the places where person will enforce the rule. The sign where Surya is placed will modify the attitude towards the rule. If Kumbha or other malefic sign is there for Surya, a person may accomodate rules to suit their own appetite.

Chandra truth is only eka pada or 25 %, as it is based on the truth of society. SOme society will allow four women, while in certain societies in history people did not have a bath or were allowed to eat human flash. These types of truth are subject to social needs and governance and are ruled by Chandra. Only Purnima Chandra has a value to go beyond this rule

Guru is absolute and pure truth where God's law is obeyed. This is the only rule and only graha where God can show his face through (Prasna Marga), so unless this Graha has connection with lagna, a person can hardly understand the proper and pure concept of truth and being truthful.

Budha and Shukra follow the concept of Rajas truth, the truth of money, sex and enjoyment. Tamas grahas follow the shady concept of truth, or rather to say untruth. Mangal enforces his own truth by force and gun. Shani's truth is based on lies as well as Rahus. To be continued...

 

You will see many web sites where Lagna of divisional charts was discussed. Yet, most of the informatiom offered is quite useless and confusing. The reason lies in terrible lack of understanding the basics nature of the signs or rashis.

My focus here will be on specific signs which will serve the rule of general principle.

Navamsa chart- The best lagnas are Karka, Dhanu and Meena for relationships where high level of tolerance, sacrifice and mutual goals with people and associations are achived. However, for marriage, only Karka Lagna in Navamsa chart is favourable. Dhanu Lagna is very unfavourable to marriage particularly if Budha is there, while Atmakaraka in Dhanu navamsa (Particularly if atmakaraka is Budha) can even cause the curse of Dharma and Ishta Devata. The only solution will come from a strong and unafflicted Guru placed in trines to lagna or Karakamsa Lagna.

Meena Lagna navamsa or karakamsa have a major failing for marriage. They want to marry Krishna, as it was nicely illustrated in the story of the princess Mina. If Meena is Navamsa Lagna or Karakamsa in a male chart, there can be a lack of progeny, unless there is a nulifying factor.

Vrishaba Navamsa Lagna is SUPERB for marriage. There is a high level consciousness about relationships, and if Chandra is well placed a person will handle partners with a great care and conscious efforts. Of course other karakas should not be afflicted

Thula Navamsa has a major problem since there will be too much fighting in relationships, particularly if mangal aspects. A person will trully suffer the curse of Subramanya

Vrischika navamsa is the worst lagna to rise in Navamsa Chart as far as marriage and dharma is concerned. A person is fully unaware of their destiny and needs of a spouse. Their intelligence has gone in this area. If chandra is there or Budha is there one of them being Atmakaraka, the soul cannot see their destiny and a high level of immorality and corupt character will be there.

Mithuna Navamsa is also bad particularly if Shukra is in Lagna in mithuna. A person may remain childless and due to insatiable lust and conflicts, and huge ambition in this area will be cursed by Laksmi Devi. There will be all kinds of financial problems too.

Simha NAvamsa is excellent for knowledge and spirituality and Atmakarak there will surely confirm it (in simha rashi). However, for marriage, early widowhood is a threat.

Kanya Navamsa is horrible, since even LORD BRAHMA cannot create a partner a person desires. If Shani is there or in trines, a person may remain childless /unmarried. In any case Strong Shani is undesirable or Atmakarak in kanya navamsa (Shani in particular) will have a negative say on person's progeny.

Kumba Navamsa is bad for relationship too. A person will terribly lack emotions and will be too punishing. Chandra in Navamsa lagna or in Kumba will specifically mark the same, and wrong thinking will be there. There own mother will suffer or a person will marry a spouse without a mother or with suffering mother.

Mesha Navamsa is very good for both marriage and knowledge. A person is full of knowledge and light particularly if Surya and Guru are strong and well placed (for spirituality) or Chandra and Shukra for marriage.

Makara Lagna is very bad, all kinds of enjoyments in marriage and relationships will lack. A person lacks faith terrible or loose it easily, particularly if Guru is placed in such Navamsa Lagna.

In this way, one can see all lagnas in divisional charts and see the general tendency even before getting deeper into analyses of planetary positions. Try to think in the same lines and guess why Kumbha lagna or Chandra in Kumbha for female charts is horrible for chidren in D-7? In male chart Meena Lagna or Dhanu Lagna can live the person childless under the circumstances and are the causes the same? Kanya Lagna can leave the person complete childless or their children will remain childless if other planetary combinations give children to a person...
