Some Tools of Dynamic Vedic/ Indian Horoscope Predictions and Analysis


Each enthusiast of Jyotish eventually develops his own style to work with horoscope. I usually let the horoscope dictate how I will work with it. Just as people are different, their horoscopes mirror that difference as well.

Apart from this, I do have, boradly speaking, a particular way that I employ in working with charts. I start simply with the Lagna and the Lagna Lord and usually evaluate the placements and Yogas formed with the nine planets. This usually gives a basic picture of life at the physical level of the Rashi Chakra. Sometimes the horoscope does not afford combinations that reveal much and then without dwelling too much on the Grahas, Bhavas and Yogas, some peculiar combinations emerge that must catch the eye of the Jyotishi. These could be overriding features in Jyotish and the person must learn to spot them at the outset as they hold sway over the whole horoscope.

These could occur from the Lagna, Arudha Lagna, Atmakaraka or the Moon or a combination of such reference points. The Gochar of Shani is always extremely crucial to determine what sort of Karma is operating at a given time. Kantak Shani and Sade Sati must be spotted if it is operating.

The most important feature, apart from Yogas such as Kala Sarpa Yoga, Sarpa Yoga, Graha Malika Yoga, is the presence of great affliction and/ or great blessings. If these exist, there is not much point in evaluating some great Yogas that indicate otherwise. These latter will simply not happen to the extent indicated in the presence of the former and if they do occur they will be so frail so as to escape routine recognition.

Thus, blessings and curses apart from the other overriding features must be judged at the outset and in this judgment the Moola Dasha indicating the Karma is of prime importance. In a formal reading one will not evaluate the Varsha Tithi Pravesh Chakra unless requested as a part of the Composite Analysis but it may be taken that this is perhaps the most potent tool to fine tune the Dashas and Antardashas and to evaluate a given year. It is indispensable and must be used.

Prior to coming to work with the horoscope I engage with the other side to rectify the time of birth and the relevant Varga Chakras to my satisfaction as there is no point working with inexact birth time and the given birth time almost always needs to be rectified.

I use the Vimshottari Dasha reckoned from the Moon at the outset unless a conditional Nakshatra Dasha taught by Parashara and explained as is all else by Pt. Sanjay Rath, applies to the horoscope. In the latter scenario I dispense with the Vimshottari and use it at a later stage as a confirming and stimuli-oriented tool. I always use the Padakrama Dasha/ Narayana Dasha and also use it for the D-10/ Dashamsha Chakra where either specific opinion is sought on the career, which is amost always the case, or where the D-10 is conspicuous. I have found the Tithi Ashtottari Dasha to give unbelievably good results in annual horoscopy provided the natal birth time is carefully and accurately rectified.

If the Moon is in the 9th House, we must always remember to use the Vimshottari. It can be calculated from the Lagna, instead of the Chandra Nakshatra when Chandra is weak in Dusthana and not aspected by Guru, Budh or the Shubhapati with the Rashi Drishti/ sign aspect and there are more planets in the Kendra from the Lagna.

I do not use the transits of all planets in predictions but only those of Saturn, Guru, the Nodes and the transit of the Dasha lords and even these to get a crisper picture. I use the transit of the Moon in daily life but as taught qua the Arudha Pada and this will show how the day manifests and which visible areas of life are precipitated. It always works. The transit Moon is an important tool in predictions.
