Preface
Jataka tattva or natal horoscopy is a vast and complicated subject and requires mastery of diverse range of areas. The first and most important step in that is understanding how to interpret bhvas. The term bhva cint is taken from Mantresvaras Phaladeepika who tried to present the principles in consistent way in his immortal classic. This is an attempt to present various matters used in bhva analysis in a systematic manner. This is however, not everything one must know to start analysing the horoscope. Before going to analysis of specific bhvas which have their own set of specific principles, one need to have good understanding of the general principles. This serves as a good starting point in analysing bhva. In subsequent lessons each specific bhva will be covered that will reinforce the understanding of both generic and specific aspects of each bhva. This is intended for those who have good understanding of Jyotish fundamentals such as rasis, grahas, bhvas etc. May I pray to the Gurus to make the journey through this lesson easy and enjoyable.

bhva significations
The first step in analyzing a horoscope is to accurately understand the significations of the Bhava. A Bhava governs myriad of significations and it is not possible to list down each and every significations. However, the ones given by the Maharishis and other astrological savants can guide our thinking to the right direction should we find an area that is not listed. The secret is to understand what those authors wanted to convey.

Principle 1 Effect of natural benefics and malefics

15 Apr 2014

Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

Effect of natural benefics


Phaladeepika The bhvas occupied or aspected by natural benefics or their lords bestow auspicious results that is expected from the bhva provided they are not aspected by natural malefics. Rider: If the lord of bhva is a malefic and aspects the bhva, then it will not destroy the bhva and still provide auspicious results.
Additional points: The intensity of the results due to benefic or malefic aspects is dependent on the intensity of the aspects. Planets give full aspects on certain houses and partial aspects on the others. The results of full aspect will be full, that of 3/4th aspect will be 3/4th and so on. The aspect on the natural malefics reduce the effects proportionally. The auspicious results mentioned here are manifested if the planets placed or aspecting the bhva are not placed in debilitation, combust or placed in inimical sign. This also means that the auspicious results are enhanced when the said planets in exaltation, friendly, own sign or mlatrikoa and are not combust or defeated in planetary war.

15 Apr 2014

Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

Other classics
Jataka Parijata There are 12 bhvas such as Tanu, Dhana, Shahaja etc. If benefics are placed in the bhva and if benefics or the bhva lord aspect the bhva then the bhva prospers. The auspicious results of the bhva is full if natural malefics are not placed in the bhva or aspect it. On the contrary if the bhva is conjoined with malefics or aspected by them the bhva suffers destruction. If there are both benefic and malefic influences, mixed results are produced.
Additional points:

This refutes the popular belief that benefics spoil the bhva where they are placed and strengthens the bhva where it aspects. Similarly Malefics placed in the bhva strengthens the bhva where it is placed and weakness the bhva it aspects.
This shows that placement and aspect of benefics are both good and placement of aspect of malefics are both bad.

Additional notes
Regarding Dusthanas (6th, 8th and the 12th), prosperity of the bhva does not mean increase in the negative results. This means increase of auspicious results and decrease of inauspicious results. For instance benefic influences on the 6th house cause reduction in enmity and litigations, such influences on the 8th house increases longevity and on the 12 house decreases unnecessary expenses. Balabhadra presents Satyacharya's opinion in the Hayan Ratna. He says Satyachayrya opines that "Astamastha saumya mrtyu hani kurvanti, papa mrtyu vriddhi kurvanti. Dvadase saumya vyayahani kurvanti, krura vyayavrddhim. Shasthabhvastha saumya shatruhanim krurah shatruvrddhim kurvantiti. In Saravali (34.70) Kalyanvarma mentions that Jupiter, Moon or Venus's placement in the 12th house cause accumulation of wealth Thus influences of natural benefics on any bhva manifests the auspicious results and mollifies inauspicious results pertaining to the bhva. Malefics does just the reverse, thus manifest the inauspicious results and supresses the auspicious results. Yet it is said that malefics give auspicious results in upachaya bhvas namely 3, 6, 10, 11. These are the houses of growth and need the influence of malefics as growth is essentially a selfish activity.

Sun (arka), Saturn (ani), Mars (bhputra), weak moon (kendu), Rhu, Ketu are the krra planets. The remaining are Saumya planets. If Mercury (budha) is placed with krra planets it becomes krra; however if it is placed with weak Moon, it does not become krra. Krra candra: - Candra becomes krra during Krsna dvadasi to krsna tritiya

- If conjoined with or aspected by other saumya grahas, it becomes saumya


- If krra candra is placed with Budha both of them become saumya.

Order of Beneficence and Maleficence


The order of planets in terms of decreasing beneficence and increasing maleficence is as follows:

Jupiter > Venus > Well associated Mercury > Waxing Moon > Ketu > Waning Moon > Badly associated Mercury > Sun > Mars > Saturn > Rahu
Different classics have suggest minor variations in the order, especially the order of strong and weak Mercury and Moon. Jupiter is the most benevolent and Rahu is the most malevolent planet Jaimini When a bhva is aspected by Jupiter, Mercury and its lord that bhva is rendered very strong.

Other classics Aspect of bhva by Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and its lord then the bhva is rendered very strong

Early death of father 1 Author


The natives father died in 1994 due to cancer and the native had to pass through untold hardship because of that.

The 9th house is placed with the Karaka and Bhavesha Surya, however, is also placed with Mars and aspected by Saturn. It is receiving good aspect of Lagna lord Jupiter and debilitated Rahu (75%) from the 12th house. Rahu is very negative in the horoscope because of Ayush debility in the 12th bhva. A special vimshottari dasa applies for the native as the Subhapati is the Atmakaraka i.e, Vimshottari dasa started from the Atmakaraka Mars sphuta (longitude). According to this, the father died in Mars-Rahu-Rahu.

Early death of father 2 Authors younger brother


The natives father died in 1994 due to cancer and the native had to pass through untold hardship because of that.

9th house is placed with the lagna and the 8th lord Venus. Venus being the lagna lord does not carry the maleficence of the 8th lordship. The 9th lord is placed in the 7th house with exalted Karaka Sun. These are good placement of the 9th bhva and the lord. However, Anitya Karaka (covered later) Mars is placed in badhaka sthana (which is 11th for a movable sign) and severely afflicted by Saturn and Rahu. The Karaka Sun is having exchange with Mars showing afflicting coming on the Sun. The affliction by Saturn and Rahu shows bereavement. The father died in the period of Moon Moon. Moon is the Maraka from the 9th house being the 2nd lord and is placed in the 7th from the 9th house. It will also give the results of its Jupiter which is placed in the malefic combination in Leo.

Early death of father 3 Authors elder brother


The natives father died in 1994 due to cancer and the native had to pass through untold hardship because of that.

9th house is Aries with lagna lord exalted therein showing excellent bhagya related to father. However, it is placed with 2nd and 11th lord Mercury which is a functional malefic, but a natural benefic. This is not an adverse combination. However, the 9th is aspected by Rahu from the 5th house which is an affliction as Rahu is an enemy to the karaka for the father Sun. The 9th lord Mars is placed in Aquarius which is a neutral sign (panchadha maitri) and one Anitya Karaka (Marss dispositor) is Rahu who is afflicting Sun in the 9th. Another Anitya Karaka Saturn is in the 2nd from the 9th with the 2nd lord affecting longevity (placement in maraka bhva) with Marakesh. The father died in Rahu-Saturn-Rahu.

Early death of husband Authors mother


The natives husband died in 1994 due to cancer and the native had to pass through untold hardship because of that.

7th house is vacant but aspected by 9th lord Sun- which is a good combination showing fortune after getting married. The 9th lord Mercury is placed in the 2nd house with two gurus Jupiter and Venus which is also a very good combination. However, the lord is placed in the 8th from itself which is not a auspicious combination showing trouble. 7th lord Mercury is placed with Karaka Venus showing good married life. So the bhva, Bhavesha and Karaka are well placed in the horoscope. The Anitya Karaka Saturn is placed in the 9th house (misfortune) and afflicted by Mars+Ketu (Pisacha yoga) in the 2nd from it (Ashubha yoga) and Gulika-Mandi in the 12th. The dispositor of Gulika+Mandi will be very inimical and is placed in the 4th house with Rahu (afflicting happiness- Sukha). The maraka to the 7th are the Moon (2nd lord) afflicted, the Sun placed in the 7th from it and the planets conjoining the 7th lord Merc in the 8th (from 7th) - Venus; Mercury being the 7th lord will not be a maraka (lagna lord for husband). The husband died in Venus-Rahu-Ketu. Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint 15 Apr 2014 25 v3

Principle 2 Effect of dispositor

Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

26

What is dispositor?
What is a dispositor? The lord of the place (sthana) where a planet (graha) is placed is called the dispositor of the said planet.

For instance, consider Sagittarius Lagna and Lagna lord Jupiter is placed in Aquarius, 3rd house. The dispositor of lagnesha Jupiter is Saturn and Rahu, the two lords of Aquarius.
Similarly the lord of the nakshatra where a planet is placed becomes the nakshatra dispositor of the said planet The dispositors are very important and are an important source of strength of planets. Dispositors are the owner of a place (say house/ building) while the planets under consideration are the tenants. Say, if the owner of a house is weak and poor, the tenant of that house suffer anxiety.

Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

27

Impact of dispositors
Jataka-alankara Whichever sign the bhavesha is placed, if the lord of that sign is placed in the 6th, 8th or 12th from the Lagna, then all the auspicious results of the bhva do not manifest. However, if the sign-lord is placed in exaltation, svakshetra, friendly sign, then whatever auspicious results shown by the placement of said bhavesha will manifest.

Applying the dispositor principle


Step 1: Check which planets are placed in dusthana and / or afflicted. Call this planet A. Step 2: Find out which planets are placed in the house of planet A, call it planet B. Planet B will have weaknesses. If planet B is afflicted as well, the trouble to the bhva is severe. Only those aspect of the bhva will be protected whose karaka is well placed and have good association with the bhva.

Bad health Author


The author had severe respiratory problem and asthma from very young age. Later he was diagnosed with hypertension and diabetes.

Examine Lagnesha and karaka Sun and the Moon for health Lagna is placed with poisonous Mandi and the lagna lord is placed in marana karaka sthana in the 3rd house. The dispositors of the lagna lord are Saturn and Rahu. Saturn is well placed in dikbala in kendra, however the stronger of the two Rahu is placed in the 12th debilitated (ayus debilitation) with debilitated Moon. Health is a perpetual trouble for the native and it started right from birth in Saturns antardasa. Moons placement in the 12th debilitated and afflicted by Rahu and Saturns aspect on the lagna shows severe balarista. Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

George was troubled with health problems, aphasia, in his later years. He died 7/11/1954, Los Angeles, CA. Aphasia is the disturbance in formulation and comprehension of language. This class of language disorder ranges from having difficulty remembering words to being completely unable to speak, read, or write

The dispositor of the lagnesha Mercury is placed in the 2nd house with 3 malefics Mars, Sun and Ketu and aspected by Rahu and Saturn. The comprehension of language comes from Mercury as it is the karaka for speech. Its affliction being the dispositor of the lagnesha and in the 2nd house (speech) with the 2nd lord also getting afflicted caused the illness.

Examine the 4th house and the Moon for mothers death 4th house has retrograde Saturn causing affliction to the 4th house. 4th lord is the Moon and is placed in the 10th house Capricorn with 2nd and 7th lord Maraka Venus. There is an exchange between Saturn and Moon making the yoga between 4th and 10th lord very strong. Saturn is the dispositor of the 4th lord which is afflicting the 4th house and is hemmed between Ketu and Gulika/ Mandi. Moon being the karaka is also afflicted by Sun and Rahu on either side. According to the shattrimsa-sama dasa, the mother died in Sun and Rahu, afflicting the 4th lord Moon. Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

Examine the 9th house and the Sun for fathers death The 9th house is afflicted by Rahu and the 9th lord Mercury is placed in the 2nd house Scorpio, an enemy sign with two malefics Saturn and Sun. However, since Sun is the karaka for father, its placement with Mercury gives him support. Although Saturn is the yogakaraka, it still shows his malefic nature by afflicting the planets it conjoins. It is placed very close to Mercury compared to the Sun. The dispositor of 9th lord Merc is well placed in own sign (Mars) and exaltation (Ketu) and will try to bring social help to the native when in trouble.

Impact on results due to placements


Jataka Parijata If a planet is placed in debilitation or an inimical sign then the bhva owned by them are destroyed. If however, they are placed in mlatrikoa, exaltation or own sign, it promotes the bhva it owns.
Additional points: These are mere illustrations of the impact positional strength of the planets on the results. The following slides gives more details of all the possible factors contributing to the positional strengths i.e, Diptadi avasthas. Both Satyacharya and Parara put strong emphasis on these avasthas.

Additional notes on placements


It should be noted that a badly placed planet (due to weakness and affliction) not only fails to protect the bhva it owns, but also spoils the bhva it is placed in. Destruction of a bhva does not mean that all results will be inauspicious. It only means that there will be reduction of auspicious results. The reduction is proportionally based on the benefic or malefic influences on the bhva, bhva lord and the Karaka. There will be no auspicious results if all the three factors are afflicted by malefics and they are weak. When malefics are placed in a bhva (or aspect it) in strength (in exaltation, mlatrikoa, friendly place or own sign) it does not give much inauspicious results. If the malefics are weak (debilitated, in inimical sign, or defeated in planetary war) then the inauspicious results are given without bounds. Similarly if the benefics are strong the auspicious results are given in full, however, if the benefics are weak then the results are still auspicious but their intensity is feeble. With regards to the intensity of auspicious results the order of decreasing auspiciousness is as follows: Benefic in strength > Malefics in strength > Benefics in weakness > Malefics in weakness.

Additional points: The mental state of the planets have strong say on the results given by them. Lets take real life example to understand this. The role of a teacher (Guru-Jupiter) is to teach good things in life. However, the teacher would not teach the same way every day; the teaching will be affected by the mental state of the teacher. For example, if the teacher is delighted on a day (because he received an award for his stupendous service), he may be happy to teach all his trade secrets, however, on another day the teacher is very angry (because he received a demotion in his position), he may think that teaching is not worth it and instead of teaching may get irritated and give punishment to students without much pre-text. Thus the way in which the results are given depends on the mental and emotional state of the planets.

The planet is in the house of a person who is neither a friend nor an enemy. This person does not help the planet in achieving its objectives. The planet feels hesitant in asking for any help or favor.
The planet is stranded in a enemies house and is incapable doing its activities. The enemy will keep obstructing the activities of the planet, however, the planet choses to bear with it instead of breaking free. This is akin to the bandits breaking in to the planets home and start torturing the planet and its family.

Combustion/ Eclipse by Sun/ Helical setting


When a planet (planets with body viz., Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn) comes in vicinity of the Sun, its rays a obscured (eclipsed) by that of the Sun rendering it weak. Such planets are hardly seen on the sky. They rise immediately after the Sun has risen- this makes it impossible for the planet to be spotted on the sky due to brightness of Sun-light. They can only be spotted for a brief moment after the Sun is set in the western horizon hence called Helical setting. On the other hand, when a planet is ahead of the Sun, it rises ahead of the Sun in the eastern horizon- hence called helical rising. This is extremely auspicious and represent a state where someone is out of sever penance and cleansing. However, not all planets become combust within the same distance from Sun. The orb of combustion is given belowVenus (8) > Jupiter (11) > Mercury (12) > Saturn (15) > Mars (17)

Defeat in planetary war


BPHS 79.9 There is planetary war, if Mangala, Budha, Guru, ukra and ani are together (within one degree of each other),ukra is the conqueror, whether he is in North, or South, but amongst the other four only one, who is in the North, is the conqueror and that in the South is considered defeated in the planetary war. In my opinion, this definition has a very specific use and to be used in mundane astrology as well as in the yoga of asceticism

Graha Yuddha is an advanced topic and will be covered in subsequent lessons.

At this point one need to keep in mind that planets get into war when they are placed within 10 from each other. They represent a state of fight and can represent fight in the area of the bhva affected by that. The bhva where the planets are conjoined is equally affected by the bhva whose lord is defeated in the war.

bhvas reckoned from a specific bhva


The houses mentioned are the Kendra (1, 4, 7 and 10) and Trikona (5, 9), the Lagna and the 2nd house.

The auspicious effect of the house is proportionally reduced if the


said houses are conjoined with or aspected by natural malefic (excluding the lord). Benefics on both sides of the bhva cause subha-kartari yoga and malefics cause papa-kartari yoga. If benefics are placed in either 2nd or 12th, it causes Subha-yoga and malefics so placed cause ashubhayoga.

bhvas under consideration


The 2nd house is the house of sustenance for any bhva and if they are placed with malefic, the bhva suffers destruction due to lack of sustenance. Similarly, the Kendras are the house of Vishnu and the Trikonas are the houses of Laxmi. If malefic afflict the Kendra from the bhva, it suffers due to lack of good karma (Karma = Vishnu) Similarly if the Trikona from the bhva are afflicted, the bhva suffers due to lack of blessings from Laxmi (Laxmi= fortune).

SJC Tradition The 12th from a bhva holds the trigger (start) of the significations of

the bhva while the 2nd holds the key to end.


If 12th of any bhva is afflicted, the significations either dont get triggered or there are troubles/ delay in triggering the event. Similarly if the 2nd from a bhva is afflicted then the bhva does not end well or it ends with a catastrophe.

The upachayas 3rd, 6th, 10th and 11th are the houses of growth. Planets placed here from any bhva always help in growth of the bhva. Among all planets, malefics in these places are more effective. Growth is a selfish activity as it means going ahead of others, dominating over them, getting better compared to the rest. Hence rajasic and tamasic planets are well suited for this activity. While Rajasic planets (Mercury and Venus) strive to get ahead of others without hurting others; tamasic planets (Rahu, Ketu, Saturn and Mars) try to do so by subduing,

annihilating and destroying others.


Among the upachayas, 10th is a also a Kendra which mentioned before should be placed with benefics. Hence, excluding that we arrive at 3rd, 6th and 11th which are known as Trishadaayas. Malefics placed there contribute to growth and success of a bhva.

Later, when we learn Narayana dasa, we will use this principle in determining the success or failure in a particular Narayana dasa of a sign.

Effect of 8th house


Phaladeepika If the bhva lord is placed in the 8th house or combust or debilitated or placed in an inimical sign and at the same time is devoid of conjunction or aspect of natural benefics, the results of the bhva are completely destroyed.

Additional points: Some opine that similar results happen even when the said bhva lord is placed in the 8th from the lagna. In my humble opinion depending on whether the bhva lord is placed in the 8th from the bhva or from the lagna, different matters suffer destruction. When the bhva lord is placed in the 8th from the bhva, the relations ruled by the bhva such as 4th for mother, 5th for children suffer in life, however, when the bhva lord is placed in the 8th from the lagna, the native suffers due the matters of the said bhva. For instance, if the 5th lord is placed in the 8th from the 5th, the children suffer health troubles or troubles in their career etc. (depending on their indications), however if the 5th lord is placed in the 8th from the lagna, although the children prosper (8th is 4th from the 5th and it is mentioned before that placement of the lord in the Kendra from the concerned bhva gives auspicious results), the native has to suffer on account of children due to conflicts etc.

8th from bhva vs. 8th from Lagna


Should we conclude that placement of bhva lord in 8th from itself spoils the Lagna or its placement in the 8th from the Lagna spoils it. Classics are not very clear on this. One of the interpretation is Intelligence (ability) vs. outcome in other words, what you do vs. what you get. This point is illustrated below-

When reckoned from the bhva, it shows our ability to apply intelligence pertaining to the bhva. If well placed, this shows that the person has right resources and he/ she is capable of making right decisions.
When reckoned from the Lagna, it represents the results we get pertaining to the bhva.
bhva lord is well placed from Lagna
Very fortunate (protected) Wrong decisions The results are good. Right decisions The results are also good.

bhva lord badly placed from itself


bhva lord well placed from itself

Wrong decisions The results are not good.

Zoran, SJC Serbia If a bhva lord is well placed from the bhva itself, then we can well use intelligence related to that bhva, our decisions are good. If a bhva lord is well placed from Lagna, then such decisions are good for us, whatever the resources of a bhva are. For example, take Mithuna Lagna and Buddha in 4th house. From the 4th bhva it is well placed as a lord, so our decisions related to home, property, place where we live are good. We will choose a nice house, at a right time and money. However, whether such a house will be good for us, make us happy and prosperous, is seen from the position of the 4th lord from Lagna. In this case , it is both, so good.

Very unfortunate Right decisions. The results are not good.

Clarification from Hora Shatak


Hora Shatak 19-20 If a planet be posited in his own or exaltation sign in a Kendra or any other auspicious house; but be in the 8th from his own sign and be

afflicted by a malefic, the relative


Remember- dont underestimate the afflicted by malefic statement

denoted by that house lord of which be in the 8th from it, first gets life and loses it soon
afterwards.
Example 1 Libra lagna, Jupiter in 10th Cancer exalted, Mars in the 7th in own house. The younger brother will be short

lived. Here 3rd lord is in the 8th from its house although well placed from the lagna and aspected by Karaka
Mars. The 3rd lords good placement caused birth of the younger brother, but the life is short due to placement of the lord of younger brother in 8th from its house. Example 2 Aquarius Lagna, Mars in 10th in own sign Scorpio, Saturn in 8th aspecting Mars. The younger brother will be short lived. Mars is well placed promising younger brother but its placement in 8th from its house and aspect by 1st rate malefic Saturn only bestow short life.

Impact of Dusthanas
Jataka Parijata When a bhva lord is placed in the dusthanas (6,8,12) or the dusthana lords are placed in a bhva, inauspicious results are given pertaining to that bhva. However, the inauspicious results are greatly curtailed and auspicious results are given when the bhva lord is aspected by natural benefics.
Additional notes: According to Prasna-marga chapter 14, 8th is consider as the most inauspicious. According to Prasna-marga and Jataka Desha Marga, the bhva or planets aspected by

the dusthana lords are afflicted as well. Thus if a bhva lord is conjoined or aspected by
dusthana lords, there will be some inauspicious results pertaining to that bhva.

Internal and external significations


Prasna Marga bhvas can be considered to have two significations, viz., external and internal. The external ones are as mentioned in the stanza Thanu, etc., and the internal ones are as given in the stanza Kala, etc. (20) The 'internal' always refers to the abstract while the 'external' actually refers to concrete events. Thus the external significance of the 5th house is children, a physical entity while the internal significance is pratibha which is only an abstract quality meaning intelligence. If the bhvas are in any way connected with their lords, their internal attributes are enhanced. Otherwise their external aspects are predominant. (21)

The internal significations are attributes of the native while the external significations are the external things (or relationships) related to the native. For example courage is something the native posses, while siblings are external to the native.

Dusthanas from the bhva


Phaladeepika: From a bhva if the 6th, 8th or the 12th house is conjoined with malefics, that bhva suffers destruction.
Additional points: Previously it is mentioned that natural benefics should be placed in the 2nd, kendra or trikonas from the bhva, hence we can say that benefic placed in the dusthana do not contribute the prosperity of the bhva. The aspect of the benefic from the said position on the concerned bhva does not contribute to the wellbeing of the bhva either as they bring the energies of the dusthana to the bhva. Thus no planets should be placed in the 6th, 8th or 12th from the bhva.

Dusthanas
Mantreswara If the lord of a bhva is placed in the dusthana (6th, 8th or 12th) from the lagna, the bhva is destroyed and the native suffer seriously due such destruction.

Rider: The concerned bhva is protected from destruction if the it is aspected by natural benefics.
Phaladeepika 6.57 A bhva is also destroyed if they are conjoined with the dusthana lords. If however, the bhva is aspected by natural benefics, the bhva is protected.

Additional notes: If the bhva lord is placed in the 6th house, the destruction happens due to enmity, battles, shad-ripus (6 vices) etc; if placed in the 8th house, the destruction happens due to own fault (nija dosa), debts, no return from the efforts etc. if the bhva lord is placed in the 12th house the bhva suffer due to excessive expenditure (vyaya), forced relinquishment etc.

Dusthana and troubles


Prasna Marga 29 Sages have declared that the 6th, 8th and 12th lords are malefic in nature. A bhva get destroyed under following circumstances.

(1) bhvas aspected by or associated with the lords of these


(2) bhvas, the lords of which are associated with or aspected by the lords of these houses (3) bhvas whose lords occupy 6th, 8th or 12th
What is meant by destruction? The native will have inauspicious results related to the bhva under consideration. The exact nature of the trouble will be shown by the dusthana causing the trouble i.e., conflicts (6th), diseases and debts (8th) or excessive expenditure (12th). Saturn being the karaka of Dusthana if influence the bhva by aspect or conjunction with the bhva or the lord increases the trouble.
Remember Aspect or conjunction of natural benefics is a great saving force, unless the benefics are weak due to affliction or bad placement. Influence of benefics cause good results to manifest from the bhva for example winning battles (6th), inheritance (8th) or foreign travel (12th)

Benefics and Malefics influence on Dusthanas

Placement of benefics
Phaladeepika 15.18 To judge the effect of a planet see if where the planet is placed from the Lagna; whether it is placed in a friendly sign or own sign or exalted or inimical sign.

According to Satyacharya if saumya planets (natural benefics) are placed in a bhva they bestow auspicious results related to the bhva and placement of natural malefic cause destruction to the bhva thus bringing out inauspicious results.
This is reversed in the case of 6th, 8th and 12th house.

Additional notes: Placement of benefics in the dusthanas manifests the auspicious results of the dusthana bhva. However, the natural and functional significations of the benefics may get affected unless they are strong and aspected by other benefics. Affliction of benefics in dusthanas cause tremendous harm to their natural and functional significations.
15 Apr 2014 Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3 89

Placement of malefics
Phaladeepika 15.19 If malefics are placed in the 6th, 8th or 12th house from the Lagna, they intensify the evil effects of those houses.

Benefics in these houses cause the destruction of evil signified by these houses.
Although the placement of natural benefics alleviates the evil affect of the Trika houses, they themselves get afflicted. This means that although they (natural benefics) gives auspicious results related to the dusthanas they give inauspicious results related to their natural significations and ownership.
Illustration: Say for Leo Lagna if the 2nd lord Mercury is placed in the 6th house Capricorn, the native will be freed from conflicts and enmity; however the signification of the 2nd house namely family and wealth suffer badly. The ill results of the 2nd lords placement in the 6th are felt most if there are no benefic placements or aspect on the 2nd house.

Good influence of Dusthanas


Although Dusthanas mean bad places and are primarily responsible for all the troubles that the native has to go through, under benefic influences they are empowered to bestow auspicious results. 6th house: If benefics are placed in the 6th house in strength and / or the house is aspected by strong benefics, the native is free from enemies and is protected from injuries and diseases. The person does not have to experience conflicts or fight legal battles in life. If Lagna lord is placed in the 6th under benefic influences, then such natives will do good in Army and Law as they will win many battles. 8th house: If 8th house is under influence of benefics, the native is protected from ill-health, gets wealth from inheritance or lottery (provided 2nd lord is connected). He/ she can raise fund from Banks (for business and enterprise) and can work as a fund manager (investment banker) as the person plays with other wealth. 12th house: When 12th house comes under benefic influences, the native spends on good deeds (charitable, philanthropy). Instead of incurring expenditure, he invests his wealth and accrue high returns. He relocates to a foreign land and prospers there. Remember Just by seeing a bhva lord is placed in the 6th , 8th or 12th, do not jump to conclusion that the native will have difficulties pertaining to that bhva. There could be some difficulties by the virtue of placement in dusthana, however, whether the native overcomes them or the troubles are insurmountable need to be seen from the influences on the dusthana and other salvaging factors.

Additional notes: While the 4th, 8th and 12th from a bhva is the moksha trikona and controls the happiness, the 5th and 9th from the bhva controls the blessings of Laxmi. Natural malefic placed in such position cause suffering due to lack of bliss and blessings.

bhva karaka
Phaladeepika 15.17 For judgement of any bhvas the karakas are equally important as the bhva and the bhva lord.

If the bhva and the bhva lord is afflicted but the karaka is strong, the signification of the house is still salvaged by the karaka. On the contrary if the bhva and the lord is strong by the karaka is weak or afflicted, the signification of the bhva suffers.
Hence it is important to take all the three factors into consideration namely the bhva, the bhva lord and the karaka. Affliction of one of the three factors can cause reduction of auspiciousness regarding the significations of the bhva. The karaka of the houses starting from Lagna are (1) the Sun, (2) Jupiter, (3) Mars, (4) the Moon and Mercury, (5) Jupiter, (6) Saturn (7) Venus, (8) Saturn, (9) the Sun and Jupiter, (10) Jupiter, the Sun, Mercury and Saturn, (11) Jupiter and (12) Saturn.

bhva significations and their Karakas


Each bhva signifies multiple things, however, when a bhva is afflicted not all the significations suffer equally. Some of them suffer more, some of them less and some of them do not suffer. This is because different matters in a bhva are governed by different planets (called the karakas). If some of the Karakas of a bhva is well placed and have good relationship with the bhva or the lord, then it will try to protect those significations on the bhvas. The following slides provide a high level view of the significations and which planet govern

those significations. For instance Health is seen from the lagna, but Moon controls the
physical health. Where Sun governs the level of energy and vitality. If Lagna, Lagna lord and Moon all three are afflicted, then the native will have many sicknesses from young age. However, if Sun is well placed in the horoscope, aspect the lagna and/ or Lagnesha, then the native will have vitality to carry out his work in spite of ill-health. The list is not comprehensive and meant to be a good starting point.

Einstein, Albert Source: http://www.astro.com/astrodatabank/Einstein,_Albert Rodden rating: AA German-Swiss-American scientist, a physicist who developed the theory of relativity in 1905, and the general theory in 1916, laying the groundwork for 20th century physics and providing the essential structure of the cosmos. He was awarded the 1922 Nobel Prize for his contributions to theoretical physics, especially for his discovery of the photo-electric effect law.

He learned to talk so late that his parents feared that he was mentally retarded, not until he was three, and was not fluent until he was nine. For awhile, he was considered subnormal because of his slow development, and his teachers were continually saying that he would never amount to anything. He had begun his education in 1884 at a Catholic school near his home, but in 1889 was transferred from the school to the rigid discipline at Lluitpold Gymnasium. He was kicked out of that school for disrupting class but by the time he was 13 he had read Euclid's geometry and Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, two major influences on him.

The tripod of strength


Success in any field comes when three factors work in harmony. If one of them is lacking, there is no complete success in that matter.
bhva: The influences on a bhva shows the natives attitude towards that bhva, the overall experience, positive or negative thoughts, optimism or pessimism etc. Suffering comes only when the bhva is afflicted else, the native does not suffer due to lacking of a particular area in his/ her life. Bhavesha: Bhavesha shows the abilities of the person and how strong the desire of the person has to achieve. This also shows whether the person has the ability apply intelligence in that matter. Karaka: Even if a person has very positive attitude towards something and ability to carry out the work, that does not mean that he will be successful if there are no opportunities. This is beyond persons control and represent the wish of god.

Bhavesha and Karaka


The bhavesha decides natives experiences. If the bhavesha is subjected to benefic influences (conjunction or aspect of benefics), the native has positive experiences related to that bhva. Similarly malefic influences on the bhavesha cause negative experiences. If bhavesha is well connected with the nitya karaka, the significations of the bhva flourishes. Bhavesha should be placed in the 2nd, Kendra (1,4,7,10) or Kona (5,9) from the nitya karaka. If both bhavesha and nitya karaka are afflicted, the bhva is sure to perish.
Nitya karaka shows the blessings of god. If bhavesha is weak and afflicted, it is incapable of protecting its bhva. If however, the nitya karaka is afflicted, the native is devoid of blessings and is cursed. Even if the bhavesha is strong, it will have very hard time protecting the bhva and there will be constant trouble requiring natives attention.

Anitya karaka is to deliver the fruits (results) of the bhva (from external world) and to bring forth support from the society. If anitya karaka is also weak and afflicted, social support will be missing.

Bhavesha and Karaka


The bhva represent the field of action (rasi) and is akin to the womb of the mother. The bhavesha represent a person (graha) and is akin to the baby in the womb.

The nitya karaka represent the gods will and represent the destiny of the baby in the womb.
The anitya karaka represent the social support.

There is constant interaction of the native (bhavesha) with the god (karaka). Following can be interpreted from the interaction: a. Count from Bhavesha to Karaka (Effort): Bhavesha is the focus here, this shows what the native will do (desires, direction of intelligence) pertaining to the bhva.

b. Count from Karaka to Bhavesha (Outcome): The Karaka is in focus here and show what god will give in return.

The bhavesha should not be placed in the Dusthanas from the Karaka. Placement of bhavesha in the 12th from the karaka shows suffering due to loss, however, placement in the 2nd from the karaka is a very auspicious position showing that the karaka (god) nourishing the native with all resources.

bhva and Karaka


Count from bhva to Karaka (Attitude): This represent the attitude of the native pertaining to a bhva. If the karaka is placed in a dusthana from the bhva, the native has a very pessimistic attitude pertaining to that bhva. For instance if Jupiter is placed in the 10th house which is 6th from 5th house the native has conflicts with the children. Count from Karaka to bhva (Fortune): What the native gains from the bhva is shown by houses arrived after counting bhva from the Karaka. For instance in the same example, 5th bhva will fall in the 8th house from the Karaka showing that the native does not get any happiness from the children (8th renunciation). Illustration: Jupiter in 10th: 10th is the strongest among the Kendra's and placement of Jupiter in the 10th is a great blessing. However, Jupiter goes to the 6th house of enemies from the 5th house. According to Chamatkar Chintamani, although the native is very religious (2nd from 9th) and honorable, he suffers due to wicked children.

bhva/Bhavesha-karaka sambandha
Zoran, SJC Serbia: Karaka is the final authority of a bhva. We may apply our intelligence very well, yet the luck may never come. So there are two factors: 1. Relationship of bhva and a karaka 2. Relationship of a bhva lord and karaka If a bhva lord and karaka are in good relationship, we will make such decisions which will be supported by God, and our attitude is very good. It is the sign of a good karma related to that area of life. In opposite case it is akin to a curse.

Illustration: If Shukra is in kendra to 7th lord an attitude towards sexuality and partner is normal. If Shukra is conjoined 7th lord the sexuality is pronounced. If Shukra is in 5th or 9th house from the 7th lord too many rules or regulations may spoil the relationship, though the persons relationship is purely based on purva punya or bhagya. However, the time factor becomes too important and a person may want a sex at one time, while the partner at another.

Lord of the dusthana from the bhva if they are devoid of strength Prosperity The planets causing prosperity of the bhva during its period are: a. Malefics placed in the 3rd, 6th and 11th from the bhva. Note that mentioned houses are classified as trishadaya and their lords are considered extremely evil by Parara. b.

Phaladeepika 15.12 Here Phaladeepika gives additional dictum on the circumstances that cause destruction of a bhva during their periods (dasa-antardasa)a. The planet that is adhi-satru of the bhva lord b. The planet whose astakavarga is devoid of bindus (or rekha as per Parara) in the concerned bhva. For instance in the Saturns dasa if the 5th house in

Saturns astakavarga is devoid of bindu, then the native suffers due to the
matters related to 5th house in such dasa.

The details of Astakavarga will be covered separately. This is just to indicate that current learning need to be synthesized with other techniques as well for more accurate predictions.

When bhva are spoilt? (3/3)


Phaladeepika 15.12 a. According to another view say for Leo lagna, if in the lagna lord Suns astakavarga there are no bindus in the Pisces, then in the dasa-antar of the planets placed in Pisces the

native suffer health troubles (lagna). Thus if in the astakavarga of the bhva lord there is
a sign devoid of bindus, the planets placed in that sign will give inauspicious results during its dasa-antar.

The details of Astakavarga will be covered separately. This is just to indicate that current learning need to be synthesized with other techniques as well for more accurate predictions.

122

Importance of Lagna lord


Phaladeepika 15.9 The bhva placed with the lagna lord prospers. Similarly if lagna lord is placed with a bhva lord, the concerned bhva prospers as well. If the bhva lord is placed in dusthana (6/8/12) there is predominance of inauspicious result related to the bhva. The inauspicious results are aggravated if the bhva lord is weak in the dusthana.

However, if the bhva lord is placed in strength, the inauspicious results are greatly curtailed and some auspicious results are felt.

15 Apr 2014

Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

123

Lagna lord always auspicious


Phaladeepika 15.10 Phaladeepika explains that even if the lagna lord is a natural or functional malefic, it still has the potency to give auspicious results related to the house where it is placed. For instance for Aries lagna, Mars is a natural malefic and also owns a dusthana (8th). If such Mars is placed in the 5th bhva under benefic aspects the native gets auspicious results on account of children. It is noteworthy that the auspicious results are strongly felt if the venom of the planet due to malefic nature and ownership and is greatly nullified by the aspect of natural benefics.

Whichever bhva, the Lagna lord is placed or whichever bhva lord the Lagna lord is conjoined or whichever bhva lord is placed in the Lagna, that particular bhva gains high importance and attention in the life of native

Lagna lords periods


Phaladeepika 15.27 The lagna lord gives results of the bhva whose lord it conjoins or the bhva where it is placed in.

If the bhva or the bhva lord is strong, the native gets auspicious results pertaining to the house.
If however, the bhva or the lord is weak then adverse results are bestowed on the native. This indicate the matters of life that heavily influence the life of the native.

Illustration: If lagna lord is in the 5th house or the 5th lord, children will be a very prominent thing in the natives life. If the 5th house is strong the native will be very happy regarding the children and vice-versa.

Principle 11 Impact of dual lordship

15 Apr 2014

Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

127

Extent and sequence of results


Phaladeepika 15.11 When a planet owns two bhvas then the result of the bhva falling in the mlatrikoa of the planet is predominant (100%) and the result of the svakshetra will be felt half (50%) during the period of planet . With regards to the sequence of results during the dasa of the planet, reckoned from the lagna the bhva which comes first, the result of that bhva will be felt in the first half of the dasa. Similarly the result of the bhva which comes later while reckoned from the lagna will be felt in the latter half of the dasa.

Illustration Consider Jupiter dasa for Leo lagna, Jupiter is the 5th and the 8th lord; here 5th sign Dhanu is Jupiters mlatrikoa while 8th sign Pisces is Jupiters own sign. Thus the result of the 5th house will be felt in full and that of 8th house will be felt in half during Jupiters dasa. In addition, the 5th bhva results will be felt in the first half and that of 8th bhva will be felt in the latter half.

15 Apr 2014

Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

128

Sequence of results (others opinions)


Phaladeepika further mentions the opinion of others regarding the sequence of manifestation of the results. He says that if a planet is placed in an odd sign then the result of the bhva falling in its odd sign will be felt in the first part and the result of the bhva falling in its even sign will be felt later. Similarly if the planet is placed in an even sign, the result of the bhva falling in a even sign will be felt in the first part if the planet is placed in a odd sign will be felt in the latter half.
Illustration: Consider Pisces lagna with 3rd and 8th lord Venus is placed in the 2nd house Aries. Since Venus is placed in an odd sign Aries, the 1st part of the Venus dasa will confer the results of 8th bhva (coinciding with odd sign Libra) and in the 2nd part of Venus dasa the results of 2nd bhva (coinciding with even sign Taurus) will be felt

Phaladeepika 15.29 When a planets owns two signs one of which is auspicious and another one is inauspicious, if the planet is placed in the auspicious house, then the results of the auspicious house will be predominantly felt (during the dasa of the planet). On the contrary if the planet is placed in the inauspicious house, that result will be predominantly felt.

Phaladeepika 13 Even if a planets is full of strength due to placement in exaltation, friendly sign or very high in shadbala, however, if placed in a bhva sandhi then the planets becomes ineffective in giving the results (either auspicious or inauspicious) of the bhva under consideration.

Additional notes: This always needs to be taken under consideration while predicting results due to placement in a bhva in a dasa or antardasa. One should note that the strength of the result conferred by a planet due to its placement in a bhva is proportionally reduced as it is moved away from the bhva Madhya.

bhva sandhi
Definition: A planets is supposed to be in bhva sandhi if the planet is placed in the 5th Navamsa from the bhva madhya reckoned in zodiacal or anti-zodiacal manner. bhva Madhya The bhva madhya of all the bhvas are in the exact longitude of that of the lagna according to the equal house system.

Determining planets in bhva sandhi Step 1: Note the longitude of the lagna Step 2: Add 15degree to the longitude of the lagna.

Step 3: Find the planets which are placed within 1degree either side of the longitude arrived at step2.

Implication of bhva madhya principle


By implication, natural malefics should be placed in bhva sandhi and the natural benefics should be placed in bhva madhya. If this happens, the negativity due to placement of the malefics on a house will be greatly curtailed. Similarly such planets in bhva sandhi will also not be influence any bhva due to its aspect as the point of exact aspect will be far from the bhva madhya. However, malefics so placed can aspect a planet and influence its natural as well as functional significations (due to ownership) if the said planet is placed in the orb of aspect. Orb of aspect need elaborate mathematical computation and is not covered in this lesson.

Principle 13 Effect of two planet combinations

15 Apr 2014

Sarajit Poddar, SJC | bhva cint v3

138

Introduction
When two planets conjoin they undergo transformation. For instance when a person is with ones mother his/ her behaviour or disposition will be very different from when he/ she is alone and similarly the disposition will be very different when the person is with a dear friend. Hence, once should not treat them as they are individually placed. There are many aspect to this transformation. One important aspect is all planets carry their rasi and bhva significations in addition to their own natural significations. When planets conjoin they bring forth their rasi and bhva significations in the conjunction and influence each other. For instance we understand that Jupiter gets exalted in Moons sign Cancer. So when Jupiter is

placed with Moon, its behaviour will be akin to his placement in Cancer. So when Jupiter and
Moon conjoin the energies of Cancer prevail. Lets say they conjoined in Capricorn; such Jupiter and Moon combination cant be equivalent to either Jupiter in Capricorn or Moon in Capricorn. Conjunction of planet can be compared to a soup whereby although we can identify which vegetable (similar to planets) are present, we cant distinctly identify the

individual tastes of the vegetables distinctly. Its the combination of tastes of each vegetable
which defines the taste.

The bhva suffers due to many battles and conflicts. This cause unmada-yoga or madness. The signification of a bhva may suffer due to madness. If well placed this yoga shows high achievement. This brings the blessings of Mahalaxmi to the bhva. This goes by the name yanavanta yoga and confers prosperity and leadership. However, this is not good for longevity matters. This cause breakage of bones as Ketu indicate accidents and Mercury represent the body framework. This is Gaja-Keshari yoga and is very auspicious yoga.

This shows loss of morals and independence. This is Pisacha yoga. The house impacted by this combination of planet is affected by negative spirits (or energies) This is parampara yoga, showing learning from the Guru. The native belongs to a parampara if Lagna lord / atmakaraka or Arudha Lagna is associated with the yoga. This is guru-chandala yoga showing falls of dharma and extreme evil to the bhva associated with this.

144

bhva as Lagna
Phaladeepika 15.20 Whichever bhva is under consideration, reckon that bhva as the lagna and judge the results of the house as it is judged from the lagna.

For instance if the results of the daughter-in-law need to be judged then consider the 5th house as the lagna and take the 7th therefrom for the daughterin-law.
Take another example, if the wifes wealth need to be judged, then considering the 7th house as the lagna, the 2nd therefrom need to be judged for that. Thus any bhva can be considered as lagna and the results of 12 bhvas can be ascertained therefrom.

Considering a bhva as lagna for a relation, the other relations can be derived by counting others bhva therefrom. For instance considering 7th as the lagna of the spouse, the 3rd from the 7th i.e, 9th house signify spouses siblings. The relationship need not be blood relations. For instance 3rd house rules cousins and good friends who are like brothers; 4th rules anyone whom we treat as mother, 5th rules anyone whom we treat as our children such as students, followers, 9th rules anyone we treat like our father.

Where to use it?


Although this method can be used in rasi chart with fair degree of accuracy, however since Rasi chart is an accumulation of myriad of indications there is a limit to which one can be accurate. This however gives very accurate results in the divisional chart. For instance using this principle one can accurately predict everything related to siblings for instance, Siblings spouse, children, career etc.

More of this will be covered during study of the divisional chart.

Karaka as Lagna (1/3)


Phaladeepika 15.21 Yet another method of judging the result of various relations from the karakas. Considering the Sun as the lagna, various aspects of the father can be judged from the 12 houses therefrom; for instance fathers younger brother can be judged from the 3rd house from the Sun. Similarly various matters related to Mother can be judged from Moon, Mars for brother, Mercury for maternal uncle, Jupiter for children, Venus for spouse, Saturn for servants.

Additional notes: One need to combine the techniques of considering bhva as lagna as well as Karaka as lagna to arrive at fairly accurate results. For example, Fathers mother need to be checked from both 4th from the 9th house as well as 4th from the Sun. This method gives very accurate results in the divisional charts.

From the 5th of the Sun fathers wisdom and status need to be judged. The 6th house from the Sun should be judged for his vices, enemies and the diseases. The 7th from the Sun should be judged for fathers relationships (sexual relationships) and business acumen should be judged. From the 8th house from the Sun judge fathers sorrows, longevity and death.

Karaka as Lagna (3/3)


Phaladeepika 15.24 From the 9th house from the Sun judge fathers righteous activities, auspiciousness and good fortune and paternal grandfather. Business and profession should be judged from the 10th from the Sun. The 11th from the Sun should be judged for fathers gain and the 12th therefrom should be judged for the loss and expenditure. Like the various aspects of the father are judged from the 12th houses from the Sun, similarly the judgement for Mother can be done from the Moon and so on.

Pt. Sanjay Rath
Karaka Jupiter bhva from Lagna 5th house: Children 5th from Lagna shows the children we have. bhva from Karaka 5th from Jupiter shows how we love and care for them. 5th house or lord from Jupiter shows the kula devata who is responsible for the continuation of the lineage In female horoscopy, the 5th house/ lord from Venus shows Kula devata whereas the same from Jupiter shows the Kula devata of Spouse family or that deity who brings about the marriage.

Venus

7th house: spouse Wife is seen in the 7th from the Lagna 8th house: Death 8th and 12th bhva from Lagna shows when we will die

7th house and lord from Venus determine the place and direction from where the spouse will come from. 8th and 12th bhva from Saturn shows our attitude and experiences when we die. The responsibility of Saturn is to make us renounce the world (Sanyasa). 12H from Saturn indicate those which we must lose to go towards Sanyasa.

Karaka bhva Naya


Phaladeepika 15.26 dharme srya tagurbandhubhve aurye bhauma pacame devamantr kme ukracame bhnuputra kuryttasya kleamityhuranye || 26|| Some opine that Surya in Dharm (9th)a bhva, Sita (Venus), Guru (Jupiter) in the bandhu (4th) bhva, Bhauma (Mars) in the saurya (3th), devamantri (Jup) in the 5th, Shukra (Venus) in kaama (7th), bhanuputra (Saturn) in the 8th cause troubles and distress.

There are some difference in opinions among other savants. For instance many believe that Saturn in the 8th house gives long life. More will be covered in lessons on effect of placement of Planets in bhva.

Example: Jupiter in 5th


Sanjay Rath COVA, Chapter 8 , Page 171 If Jupiter is in the fifth house, there will be five sons of which three will survive. If the Jupiter in the fifth is in Pisces, very few children are seen while stronger Jupiter in Sagittarius (mlatrikoa) children are obtained with difficultly. If Jupiter is even stronger by being in Cancer or Aquarius (Jupiter in Aquarius gives result akin to being in exaltation) in the fifth house, children will be denied. This is based on the principle Karaka bhva Nashaya i.e., a natural significator placed in the house damages the significations. Other authors: Vaidyanath: Minister, virtuous, wealthy, few children; in cancer or Aquarius no children; Pisces less children; Sagittarius- beget children with difficulty; Manasagari: wealthy, ardent following by friends, knowledgeable of many disciplnes, contented pleasant appearance. Mantresvar: Intelligent, minister, troubles on account of children

Details of this will be covered in placement of planets in bhvas and Rasis

3 factors coming together


Hora Shatak 1.4 If a planet be posted in his own house and be also the significator of that house, the result will either be very destructive or extremely good, because if any good or band influence falls on that house, all the three viz., the house, its lord and its significator are affected at the same time. The result will be either extremely good or extremely evil as the case may be.

Sambandha meaning (1/2)


Exchange This sambhadha happens when two planets are placed in each other signs. This is the strongest of all sambandhas. In this case the planets give results due to their lordship as if they are placed in their own bhva. However, their results due to placement in a rasi is unaltered and their natural result due to placement in a bhva is also not altered. Mutual aspect When two planets mutually aspect each other, they like to engage in a partnership to do

some constructive (or destructive work) based on their nature.


Placement aspect (partial exchange) When planet A is placed in planet Bs sign, however, planet B instead of going to planet As sign aspect planet A or its sign.

Sambandha meaning (2/2)


Conjunction When two planets are placed together this sambandha happens. This is not considered to be an auspicious sambandha as both planets affect each others rays. They also being naisargika shatru (enemy) being placed together. Mutual kendra When two planets are placed in kendra from each other, they actively involved either supporting each other or opposing each other. They are very active and dynamic as Kendras

are governed by Vishnu representing Karma Yoga. The result of this yoga comes after hardwork. Mutual Trikona Planets placed in trine to each other behave similar to each other as Trine represent same

nature (same tattva). The result of this yoga is based on sharing the fruits and comes due to
blessings of Laxmi who governs the Trine

Case 1
One of the greatest men of Europe; born in humble circumstances as a blacksmiths son; often starved without food; was a great revolutionary; has a sudden downfall and a violent death. Examine Lagna for the birth circumstances; Kendra and trine for rise in life.
Lagna: See planets in Lagna see Lagna lord see the karaka for Lagna see aspect on the Lagna see the houses from the Lagna.

Rahu is placed in the Lagna Libra in a friendly sign. Lagna lord Venus is placed in the 9th house with 3rd and 6th lord Jupiter. Venus when placed with Jupiter becomes very strong and the sign is akin to Pisces. In addition, Jupiter aspects the lagna from the 9th house. This is a very beneficial placement causing overall success in life. Why born in humble family? The karaka for birth circumstances Moon is placed in the 8th afflicted by malefics Mars and Saturn and the Lagna lord is placed in the 12th from the resource karaka Sun, indicating scarcity of resources.

Case 2
Father died in the 2nd year, great strides in life; two wives; lost two sisters early. Examine Lagna for the birth circumstances; 9th for father; 3rd for siblings.

bhva: See planets in bhva see bhva lord see the karaka for bhva see aspect on the bhva see the houses from the bhva.

bhva: See planets in bhva see bhva lord see the karaka for bhva see aspect on the bhva see the houses from the bhva. 9th house Pisces with no planet. The lord Jupiter is placed in the Lagna defining the focus of the natives life (that is revolvi ng around matters of father). This is a good placement of the 9th lord which is also aspecting the Lagna. Why father died early? See the karaka! The karaka Sun is placed in the 12th house of loss (also in Marana Karaka sthana) showing that the native will suffer due to loss of father (or father going away). Sun is placed with friend Mars but afflicted due to placement with Venus as Venus debilitates Sun. Sun is very close to the bhva madhya, so its placement in the 12th will certainly fructify. Looking at the kendra and trikona from the 9th house, Mars and Saturn are placed in Kendra, Moon is placed in a dusthana and Ketu is placed in a trikona. These planets do not support the 9th house. During the period of Sun-Moon, the native lost the father.

Case 3
A great politician and equal to a king in status; saved Europe from anarchy; humane and tactful.

Examine 5th bhva and Karaka Sun for the power and position.

bhva: See planets in bhva see bhva lord see the karaka for bhva see aspect on the bhva see the houses from the bhva.

Lagna has Moon showing fame and the lord Mercury has gone to the 2nd house although afflicted by Mars and Sun (Aries) showing battles in life. Lagna lord Mercurys conjunction with Sun makes the native very fortunate. 5th house Scorpio is empty but its lord Mars is well placed both from the Lagna and itself. Its placement with the Lagna lord makes the theme of the natives life revolving around it. It is also placed with the karaka of the 5th house for power and authority Sun, making it very strong.

Case 4
Female, suffered seriously from smallpox in the 8th year and also from dropsy. Hot constitution, superior airs, died in her 14th year.

Examine Lagna, 6th and 8th house for health and 8th house for longevity.

bhva: See planets in bhva see bhva lord see the karaka for bhva see aspect on the bhva see the houses from the bhva.

Lagna has exalted Moon showing fame and high ideals while the Lagna lord Venus is placed in the 7th (Kendra) in a neutral sign. In addition, the Lagna lord is placed in the 2nd from the Karaka Sun (resources) and 7th from the Karaka Moon (health). Thus the Lagna is fairly strong. So why such negative experiences?

Lets check 6th and 8th houses for diseases. 6th house has heavy affliction due to eclipse of Sun by Rahu. The 8th house is placed with Malefic, 7th and 12th lord Mars. The supporters of the Lagna are Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. While the troublemakers are Rahu, Sun, Ketu, Mars and Saturn. The small-pox could have happened in Moon-Rahu-Mars and the native died in MoonVenus as Venus is a very strong maraka being lord of 6th with 2nd lord Mercury in the 7th house.

Examine Lagna, 7th house for marriage.

bhva: See planets in bhva see bhva lord see the karaka for bhva see aspect on the bhva see the houses from the bhva.

Lagna has eclipse combination with the lord Venus placed in the 2nd house with the 2nd lord Maraka Mercury. Lagna is also aspected by Yoga-karaka Saturn who is conjoined with 3rd lord Moon. Lets examine the 7th bhva for marital experiences. 7th house has Ketu and the 7th lord Mars is well placed from Lagna and 7th. However Mars is placed in a enemys sign but it is well placed from Karaka Venus. The Karaka Venus is placed in the 8th from the bhva showing negative experiences related to marriage. The supporters of 7th house are Moon, Mars and Jupiter. The trouble markers in the order of reducing maleficence are Sun, Rahu, Saturn, Venus, Mercury and Ketu. The husband died in probably Venus-Sun. Why? When reckoned from 7th, Venus is a Maraka and Sun in afflicted in the maraka bhva.

Sri Jagannath Centre (SJC)


Sri Jagannath Center (SJC) was established in 1998 in India with the objective of teaching jyotish in the time honored tradition of maharishi Parasara and Jaimini and sages of yore. The tradition traces its lineage to Mahapurush Achyuta Dasa, the disciple of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Jyotish or Vedic astrology is taught by a panel of jyotish gurus in the traditional jyotish parampara of Sri Achyuta Dasa of Jagannath, Puri. SJC attempts to infuse the highest standards of integrity through the strict discipline of yogic practices of Vedic tradition including training in remedial measures. Meditation including dhyana, dharana, and pranayama is taught to ensure spiritual discipline while classes on scriptures and Sanskrit ensure a balanced spiritual growth along with the knowledge of astrology. SJC aims at continuing the time honoured guru-shishya tradition and is dedicated to the propagation of Vedic and Vedic Astrology learning covering the gamut of allied subjects including astrology, scriptural studies and mantra shastra, numerology, vastu shastra, shakuna Shastra, swapna shastra and yoga. It concentrates on propagating research in the highest scholastic tradition in the different areas of jyotish and aims at demystifying the subject by rescuing it from the hands of quacks, while restoring its dignity and prestige that it enjoyed previously.
