CHART INTERPRETATION FOR ABC
Meena (Pisces) Lagna (Ascendant) rises in the chart. Meena is the 12th House of the chart of the Kalpurusha, or the Cosmic Man. It is a mystic Rashi (sign) and indicates propensities to Moksha or liberation, since this is one of the sterling features of the 12th House (H). Since the 12th H is also of emigration, foreign travel, loss, meditation, seclusion, house of the Guru or the Ashram, expenditure, secrecy, secret suffering, dissipation and pleasures of the bed among other significations, these themes are likely to attain prominent focus in life in some manner or means. The applicability of each signification will be modified by the other factors relating to such significations. Meena is a Jala Tattwa Rashi, meaning that this sign has a watery disposition. Such natives have a tendency to retain weight easily. Of course, physical changes, like other changes are contingent on Dasha (planetary periodicity). However, since Guru (Jupiter) is placed in a malefic sign, Mesha (Aries) and also since Kumbha Rashi (Aquarius) rises in the Navamsha (Ninth Harmonic) chart, with the Navamsha Lagnesh (Lord of Lagna) placed with Shani (Saturn) in the 12th H, in the Graha (Planet) Dashas of malefics, this tendency may not manifest fully. Even otherwise, the inherently retentive nature of Meena will be modified by the other influences named.
Since Moksha, or a spiritual yearning is associated with this Rashi, it is only fitting that it should be a female Rashi. These signs are capable of tapping into the hidden truths inherent in Existence since they have intuitive ability and enhanced sensitivity. Having said this, three Grahas: Shukra (Venus), Rahu (North Node of the Moon) and Ketu (South Node of the Moon) aspect the Lagna Rashi by Rashi Drishti (sign aspect). Shukra is the Daitya Guru or the Preceptor of the Demons. Thus, Shukra is associated with the material and sensual impulse and all things that are desirable in life. In other words Shukra stands for all that provides the gloss to the extant world. It is the Karaka (significator) of luxury, vehicles, spouse, perfumes, women, sex, developed countries, travel, enjoyment, poetry, entertainment, cinema, apparels, design and like matters. Its Rashi Drishti on the Lagna ensures that the spirit in Meena is subjected to a lot of material inputs in this incarnation. Further, Shukra is conjoined an exalted Rahu in Mithun (Gemini) Rashi, thus giving a tendency to psychological compulsiveness. The 4th H is the nadir of the chart, where latency manifests and the person?s seeds and roots lie. It is also the house of the emotional, not cognitive, mind and deals with the psychological mapping of the person. Since the domestic environment and the mother shape our emotions, this Bhava (house) also quite fittingly shows these significations also. Now, the aforementioned Rashi Drishti of Shukra, apart from giving the effects named will also make for ill-health since it is a dire functional malefic for Meena lagna as the 3rd and 8th Lord of the chart, placed in the delicate 4th House. The 4th House of the chart is the Hiranyagarbha or the Cosmic Storehouse where all the latent possibilities of the person in a given incarnation lie. Thus, Rahu and Shukra have assailed both the emotional structure of the personality as well as affected the bodily health by their location and aspects.
The hints at emotional hurt and mental turmoil that are visible due to Shukra and Rahu being in the 4th House are also confirmed both at a transient level as well as a general tendency. Shukra being the 8th Lord (L) brings a tendency towards the experience of adverse events of a sudden nature. The 8th H is potentially the most adverse house of the chart and rules, amongst other things, Adhi and Vyadhi: physical and mental distress. The 3rd H is also a malefic house. Rahu is the Karaka of doubt, delusion, fear of a calamity happening, compulsive behaviour, obsession and the like. It gives a certain level of illusion in the psychological structures. The lord of the 4th House, Budh (Mercury) is placed in the 3rd House, which is the 12th House of loss from the 4th House. This also shows that the mental situation is somewhat assailed. The strength in this direction comes from a well-placed Chandra (Moon) in Karka (Cancer) in the 5th House. This will lend a lot of positive grace to the mind.
The Lagnesh is also the 10th Lord of the chart and is placed in the 2nd House forming a Simhasan Yoga, which usually takes the native to greater heights in the chosen line of work. The term Simhasan implies throne and Guru will aid the accumulation of wealth as the Karaka for wealth placed in the 2nd House of savings. This placement is conditioned by two immediate factors. Ketu in the 10th House in exaltation can give genuine thirst for spirituality and a feeling that working life is headless, so to speak, since Ketu the demon does not possess a head or it will make for a career that requires involvement with software and the most sophisticated gadgets. Ketu Vimshottari Dasha has also been going on since 19-12-1998 and will culminate in 2005 on the same date. The spiritual upsurge and certain amount of bewilderment would have arisen in this period though the placement of the dispositor (Lord of the Rashi in which Ketu is placed) is located in a good Bhava. Further, Shani is the lord of both the 11th and the 12th Houses in this Kundli (Horoscopic chart) and is placed in the 12th House. The 12th House is also that of expenditure and loss and as a natural malefic, Shani may show spending of money on the inappropriate sort of things. The association of Shukra with Rahu also points at this outcome. Since this Bhava also shows sleep, as a malefic Shani may give some disorders or difficulties in sleep. The lord of the 2nd House is Mangal (Mars) and is placed in the 3rd House of hard work and communications with the 6th Lord Surya (Sun) of daily work and job. The location of the 7th Lord in the 3rd House might predispose the nativity to some stresses in the marriage, as he may not approve of the mannerisms of the spouse. The spouse may be somewhat headstrong and intent on following her own way in life, which may be unconventional and prone to disapproval. The image of the spouse is seen from the Upapada Lagna (UL) and this is also in the 8th House of adversity, delay and difficulty, sometimes unforeseen impediments. The lord of the UL is Shukra and it is placed in the 4th House of the heart and deep seated emotions, thus it can be surmised that the marriage might bring heartache or That there may be some trials and challenges imposed on the native in this regard. It is also seen that the 7th L Budh is with the 6th L Surya in the 3rd House with the natural malefic Mangal. Thus an element of separation is shown by the affliction of the 7th L.
The stresses and strains in the marital area are confirmed in the Navamsha chart where the 7th L Surya goes to the malefic 8th House and the lord of the 6th House Chandra moves to the 7th House of marriage or the spouse. This is the involvement of two malefic factors in the realm of marriage. In the Rashi Chakra (Natal Chart), the Arudha Lagna (AL) is in the 3rd House showing that the perceived image in society is centered on communication and Parakrama or effort. The image will be built up by hard work and art, pithy writing, hobbies, magazines and journals modes of communication like the telephone, Internet and others furnishing areas of interest and leanings. In the discussion on the matters pertaining to marriage, it is important to note however that the UL is placed in the 6th House from the AL. This again hints at the element of an inimical relationship with the spouse and that there are fissures in marital areas or some difficulty and pressures in this direction.
The Arudha Padas of the houses are the mounts or the risen parts of the Bhavas. Thus, they display the manifest indications of the various aspects of life at a visible level. The AL has Mars, Mercury and the Sun, making for a proud and fiery image with intellectualism also becoming a prominent theme. The presence of Surya indicates that the native is perceived as a person with self-respect and pride and that there will be an aura of authority. Yet, since this happens in the 3rd House of hard work, the image in society will be built up only with hard work and striving of some import. Interestingly, since Chandra is in the 3rd Bhava from the AL, you are thought of as a kind a gentle person who is not too keen on pursuit of goals by hard and rigid means. In truth however, you possess enormous resilience to battle odds as two potent natural malefics are in the 3rd Bhava from the Lagna. This is also a good placement for fighting ill health and showing recuperative ability after bouts of sickness. In other words, this placement of Krura (cruel) planets in the 3rd House is a good placement and shows certain backup strengths in the Kundli.
The location of the Lagnesh Guru in the 2nd House gives speech laced with wisdom and also allows the native to have good food. The fact that Budh is a bad Graha for the chart in that it carries the Kendradhipati Dosha and also because it owns the adverse and malefic station of the 22nd Drekkana or the 8th House in the Drekkana chart shows that it will be speech itself, ironically, that will be the cause of many a trouble in this incarnation especially since Budh is the Karaka of speech and is placed with the 6th Lord of violence and abuse and also Mangal that does not hesitate to use coarse speech whenever certain thresholds are crossed. Thus, even though Guru shows that many excellent tools like Sattwa are at the disposal of the tongue, there are equal opportunities to display the malefic influences on Budh. Interaction, be it at a social level or at the level of intimacy is not a problem for you since the A7, or the Darapada is placed in the 11th House of friends and is placed in the 9th House from the AL. The Darapada or the A7 is the external manifestation of the 7th House and indicates business partners or sexual partners both of which are likely to have been furnished by the networks of friends shown by the 11th House which is also the area that shows fulfillment of desires. Shani in the 12th House impedes Bhoga and the pleasures of the bed and brings slowness and delay in the fructification of a compatible romance. This is sometimes an added factor for personal dissatisfaction.
The life matters pertaining to the mother are also fraught with a certain degree of difficulty as the 4th House is rather strongly afflicted by the malefic 3rd and 8th Lord Shukra and Rahu, both of whom are highly inimical to the Sthira (Fixed) and Naisargik (Natural) Karaka for the Mother, namely, Chandra. Chandra is quite well placed in Karka but happens to be in the 2nd Bhava to the 4th, which is a Maraka place for the 4th and indicates adversity. The 4th House from the Moon is Tula (Libra) and the Lord thereof; Shukra is afflicted by the malefic Rahu and is placed in the 12th from the Karaka Moon. To further aid this interpretation, the A4 or the external manifestations pertaining to the mother is placed in the Maraka Bhava from the Lagna and 12th from the AL, showing that the Jatak (Native) shall experience elements of loss, distancing and separation pertaining to the mother at a visible and manifest level.
The Budhaditya Yoga that occurs in the 3rd House shows versatility and talent. It shows refined communication skills subject to anger, peer pressure, humiliation and outright rage but the Sun gives the power and courage to tide over these challenges since it is placed in a Vipreeta Raja Yoga in the 3rd House as the 6th Lord. Though it is conjoined good planets, the same does not diminish its resilience. The fact that Guru occupies the 12th H from AL and the 7th from the UL can indicate two possibilities, the latter of which can be confirmed from the chart of the spouse. Guru in the 12th from AL shows expenditure on spiritual subjects as too the likelihood of having to pay tax penalties at some pint in life. Regarding the location of the Graha in the 7th from the UL it shall tend to oppose the marriage in the form of the elder brother of the spouse not being entirely supportive of the marriage. This could be dependent on whether the spouse does have an elder brother and whether this indication is seen in her chart as well.
The fact that Shani is in the 10th from the AL and this in addition to the fact that AL lies in the 3rd House shows that the image in society and working life will be attained painstakingly but solidly. Shani in this position in Gochar (transit) is called Kantak Shani, which literally means thorn, implying thereby that even a lion is compelled to walk with a limp. Notably, though Shani is placed in Kumbha, which is its own Rashi and is thus potent in its own right. Conjoined the Mrityupada, A8, which is the Arudha of the 8th House it implies several things at once. 10th House from any reference point is the zenith of the Jatak. From the AL, the 10th H shows the zenith or the peak of the powers of the perceived societal image. This can include work proper as well as the native himself at the peak of his individual powers. A8 will show that it has been perceived by those who are acquainted with you that the Karma you perform including the work itself has been conditioned by several ups and downs, even startlingly so. This can also imply an overt involvement in mystic and spiritual arts like Jyotish to refurbish your image. Thus only might sound far-fetched but harbours a deep truth. Once the occult has been assimilated in desired fashions, the image can undergo amazing transformations of a positive sort and can lead to an overwhelming transformation in the way a man is perceived by those around him. This is no mere fancy but a quite pragmatic truth.
The 11th Lord from the AL, Guru is placed in the 12th H from the 12th House. This usually indicates that earnings tend to succumb to expenditure or that the native earns from foreign sources. In your case, both tendencies could manifest. This opinion is rendered based on very many factors. One is that you are an Indian born and based in a foreign land. The other, more Jyotish oriented factor is that Shukra aspects the 11th H from AL along with Rahu and Ketu by Rashi Drishti. Rahu and Ketu are considered Mlecchhas or outcastes. Since the abolition of the Caste System in India, this is usually taken to imply foreigners, as the Nodes are Karakas of foreigners. You may have had to conquer a sense of misplaced or injurious sensualism in your personality since Rahu and Shukra apart from having Rashi Drishti to the Lagna, have unobstructed Argala to the Lagna. Argala is intervention of factors; in this case it is the intervention of the said Grahas in the matters of the overall personality. Likewise, the Argala of Guru to the Lagna attempting optimism and wisdom is seriously curtailed by a meditative and detached Shani, Who seeks to teach through drastically different means, namely depression and secret suffering. In this Report, it is plausible to assert that the influence of Shani is likely to assert itself more, in tune with His nature and also since the power acquired by His placement in Kumbha cannot be ignored. Argala of the Primary sort is caused by the factors pertaining to the 2nd, 4th and 11th Bhavas from the point of reference and it is obstructed by the 12th, 10th and 3rd respectively. 5th and 8th Bhavas cause what is caused Secondary Argala to a reference point. It is also obstructed by the 9th and 6th respectively. Of course effective obstruction may only occur when these factors are stronger than the Argala itself. Surya and Mangal cause a Special Argala to the Lagna making for pride, Atman (Higher manifestation), anger, action-orientation and quickness and nobility in disposition. Pettiness will be virtually intolerable to you unless you rationalize it, which enters the picture since Budh conjoins the two natural malefics. It is probably a good thing since the Parakrama in 3rd from Lagna might have interfered with societal smoothness because of does and donts. The latter may yet influence the person but these effects shall be curtailed.
Chandra imparts an unobstructed Secondary Argala to the Lagna since there are no Grahas in the 9th H. Chandra will impart sensitivity and a heightened emotive perception to the Lagna from the 5th H of creative intellect.
It appears, ABC, that Prakriti (Existence) has chosen this very time to test your fibre. It is a Karmic time for you. Apart from the fact that Ketu Dasha is going on, Shani?s Sade-Sati (SS) has also been going on for the past two years. The first phase of the SS was also an Ardha-Ashtam (Half of 8th Saturn) Shani in the 4th House from Lagna. This makes for a doubly testing time. While the 4th House of Sukha (Happiness) is already natally afflicted by the malefic couple of Shukra and Rahu, the Gochar of Shani in the same 4th House adds to the challenge to emotional peace. This also assails the domestic environment and makes for the atmosphere to become cloistered, restrictive, perverted, unshakably hurtful, depressing, anxious, slow and unyielding. That this is also the first phase of the SS, that enormously heavy Gochar of Shani that lasts for seven-and-a-half years which completely transforms the personality by the time it is over. SS is a time to learn, sometimes in compulsory and hard ways, that which does not come naturally to us. In the first phase, the character of the native is brought into question and especially since Shani was in Gochar over the Shukra-Rahu combination, there may have been allegations of this sort. This Sade-Sati might prove to be a test of your mettle since the Ashtakvarga (Eight-fold counting) Bindus (Dots) in the three relevant houses, namely, 4th, 5th and 6th from Lagna, are below average, the average score being 28. The weakness of these Bhavas will render the transit presence of Shani in these Bhavas somewhat more severe. At least the traumatic sensations that Shani imparts when He transits over the radical Moon would have eased off somewhat since the 12th of January as Shani has moved back into Mithun Rashi. Over Karka it was assaulting your natal Moon making for extraordinary anxiety and feelings of dread and helplessness at an individually emotive level. Things are not much better psychologically, since Shani is over two malefics, whether functional or natural in the delicate 4th House but in my estimate this shall operate as a breather till May 25 when Shani finally moves in to Cancer for about two years. You must observe proper caution in this period and fight off desperation with neutral conservatism. The 5th House of the Rashi Chakra is where the radical Moon is placed and this is also the Bhava of children and creative intelligence making for a need for caution in these areas of your life.
Just as the Rashi Chakra is the overall situation of the native as he progresses through life, the Navamsha Chakra is the subtle nature and the underlying tendencies that the native possesses. In that sense, the two charts may be compared to a photograph and an X-Ray picture. In the Navamsha, the Grahas are not in their Rashis of debility, which is a good thing. The nodes are debilitated and this weakens some of their malefic intensity. At the same time, since Ketu is posited in the 10th Bhava in the Rashi Chakra in its sign of exaltation, and goes to its Neecha Rashi in the Navamsha Chakra in the 5th House from the Navamsha Lagna, which also happens to be the 8th House from the 10th in Navamsha, it makes for a situation of Pada Chyuti according to Maharshi Parashara, which implies a fall from position in career or sudden and unexpected changes. Shani in the 12th House again Navamsha shows the importance of foreign countries and meditative and spiritual outlooks. The fact that Mangal is exalted in Navamsha bodes well for the chart since the planet is a Yogakaraka for Meena Lagna charts.
Moon in the 5th House in the Rashi Chakra usually shows more chances of female progeny though quite obviously, the chart of the female is far more important or at the very least ought to be studied together with the male nativity. Ketu in the 5th Bhava in the Navamsha Chakra also hints at the same possibility. In the Saptamsha Chakra, D-7 chart, which is the specific Varga Chart for children, an odd Rashi, Kumbha rises in the Lagna and so the counting for children shall be in the regular direction. The Lord of the 5th Bhava in the Saptamsha is Budh and is placed in the 12th House from Lagna in Makar Rashi, which again shows that the first child, at least from this nativity, is likely to have been a girl. In the Rashi Chakra, since AL is in an even Rashi, the counting for the progeny shall be in the reverse. Shani in Kumbha also shows a daughter since Mithun and Kumbha, even though they are male Rashis are exceptions in that they indicate female progeny, much in the same manner as Karka and Meena Rashis indicate male children even though they are female Rashis. These operate as exceptions.
Regarding siblings, the Rashi Chakra shows a situation that is not easy to decipher. From the Lagna, Mangal is forming Karakobhavanashaya, which means that the significator of the matter is placed in the significator house. But Mangal is not alone. There is a research principle that if Mangal is placed afflicted in the 3rd House from the Lagna, it does give siblings. From the AL, the 3rd Bhava shall be counted in reverse as Vrishabh or Taurus is an even Rashi. As AL, Vrishabh would give an element of conservatism in the perceived image, whether it is financial appreciation or even otherwise. The anger, at a level perceived by people, will not be easy to control once it rises, just as with a bull, since this animal is but the symbol for Vrishabh Rashi. The 3rd House counted in reverse is the Ascendant Pisces and the lord of this Bhava is placed in the 12th House from AL showing some differences with the immediately younger sibling. The sibling is likely to be male since Guru is a male Graha placed in a male Rashi Mesha or Aries. In the Parashari Drekkana, the D-3 chart, specifically referred to for clarity regarding siblings, another female, even Rashi rises in the Lagna, Vrishchik or Scorpio and the 3rd House shall be counted in reverse where Budh is placed in exaltation in Kanya Rashi. Exalted Grahas indicate males while debilitated Grahas indicate females. Thus this sibling is likely to be a brother with an acute intelligence and should be using a great deal of communication skills, rationality and intellectual equipment, not so much as a casual habit but as a means to further the career.
In the realm of career, Ketu once again occupies the 10th House in its Mooltrikona Rashi. Guru, the 10th Lord is in the 5th House of consultancy but also threatens discontinuity in the realm of career due to the 5th being 8th from the 10th as mentioned before. The debility of the Sun in the 5th House at once shows that there will be times when without the requisite hard work but then it will also show assault on the ego and hurt to the self-respect. Ketu being in the 12th from the AL shows again an element of dissipation of the image or working in a distant land as the 12th is also a foreign land. A10 is the external manifestation of work, namely the office and this is in Vrishabh in the 12th House from Lagna with Shani and Budh placed herein showing hard intellectual work in a private sector luxurious setting indicated by the conservative Vrishabh lorded over by Venus.
The real framework to be deliberated upon at this stage of the Report is the next level of Periodicities that will operate along with the Sade-Sati and beyond. Shukra Mahadasha will operate from 19th December 2005 for 20 years. Extreme emotional caution is required in this period since Shukra is opposed to the Naisargik Karaka Chandra and is further afflicted by Rahu. To add to all this, Shukra is also the functionally malefic 3rd and 8th Lord for Meena Lagna. As a natural benefic in the 2nd House from the Arudha Lagna it shall have a tendency to provide sustenance to the external image but due to the unsavory association with Rahu, you must avoid a tarnishing of the aforementioned image by indulging in excesses pertaining to the significations of Venus.
Somehow, the Dasha sequence has been of such a nature in your life that the best features of the chart have not been allowed to bear fruit. Shani MD operated at the start in the 12th House and would have led to a distancing from yourself and to situations that involved isolation and certain difficult indications of the 12th H, a Dusthana or an evil house, albeit the least baneful of the three Trika Bhavas. Budh is a Badhak Graha for Meena Lagna and acts as an obstructing agent. Though it may have brought marriage as the 7th L in its Mahadasha, overall the period would have carried its own share of difficulties. Ketu is a deluding Graha and its Mahadasha has been running in the 10th House. That is the reason for the overall judgment that Dasha sequence has not been the best thus far.
Vimshottari acts primarily at a psychological level in that it indicates the stimuli that are acting on the native at a given point in time. Parashara termed it the most efficacious Dasha in Kaliyug. The reason would have been that the psychological status of a person couldn?t be divorced from his reality except in the situation of a mental disorder where there was a schism in the two entities. Having said all this Narayan Dasha is a far more deterministic indicator of what will happen despite a prevalent psychological setup. Narayan is the Sustainer of the Universe and actually indicates what is likely to visit the person in actual fact. Thus, we must consider it along with the Vimshottari of Shukra. The Narayan Dasha of Makar (Capricorn) will start from 13th June 2005 to 12th June 2016. That is a long period of 11 years and must be divided into three equal parts. The first part will yield the results of the Grahas aspecting the Rashi by Rashi Drishti since this is a malefic Prishthodaya Rashi, which rises hind first. Three Grahas from the Arudha Lagna aspect this sign from the Arudha Lagna. Also this sign is the 9th from the Arudha Lagna. The image shall come into the picture far more than anything else. Sun as the 6th L will bring daily work, illness, financial issues, peer pressure and inimical people into play. Marriage and intellect as too personal interaction and communication will be important in this first period since Mercury is also involved along with the Sun. Mars? aspect will mean action and cutting argumentation as too some element of fortune as this is the 9th Lord from the Lagna.
In the next one third of the Narayan Dasha the placement of Saturn in the 12th House shall give the result and you may feel the secret sorrows that you attempt to hide in your bosom a bit more than usual. Saving money might be something of a task since this happens in the 2nd House from the Dasha Rashi and also since this is the 10th House from the Arudha Lagna, the effects of Kantak Shani will be discernible. Career as far as the perceived image is concerned in society might pose a challenge and you will be seen to compromise and struggle. However, a sort of reversal can be justifiably expected in the last third of this Makar Narayan Dasha since this is the 9th House from the Arudha Lagna and any planet in the 9th tends to protect the mage and fortune of the persona of the nativity. The same parameters must apply to the Rashi in the 9th House from the AL. Since this is also the 11th Bhava from the Lagna, this will bring increased contacts, gains, and fulfillment of desires. Thus, the culmination of the period is likely to be bountiful. Since A7 or the Darapada is also in this Rashi, increased interaction and partnerships with others are also indicated in this period.
This is a rounded assessment of the overall features of your chart and has been composed keeping in view a certain delicate balance in chart analysis. You must combine the broad features that will emerge as actual events exist and unfold in your life to extract the maximum advantage. Jyotish is a study in probability. There is certainly an element of free will but more often than not you will find that this shall operate within destined frameworks.
I do hope you will find the elaborate information in this Report helpful.
