Customised Composite Annual Chart Analysis/ Tithi Praveśa (Pravesha) Chakra Analysis

The technique of the Tithi Praveśa (Pravesha) Chakra is especially useful in evaluating the course of a given year. Earlier when this technique from the esoteric traditions of East India had not been revealed to the people at large, people tried to travel deeper into the sub-divisions of the Vimśottarī Mahādaśā (Vimshottari Mahadasha) to try and develop a 'finer'  picture. Needless to say this caused some strain as the increasingly finer sub-divisions of the periodicity depend in direct proportion to their basic efficacy to the accuracy of the birth time.

The other popular option was to resort to the Arabic Tājaka (Tajaka) taken from the Tājaka Nīlakaṅthī (Tajaka Neelakanthi), a hybrid text resulting from some sort of collaboration. With the Varṣa Tithi Praveṣa Cakra (Varsha Tithi Pravesha Chakra), these issues are resolved and we can replicate the natal analyses in depth and scope so that a given year can be evaluated much as the life of the native is. It is like a life analysis compressed into the duration of the year.

The horoscope is derived on the basis of the replication of the Jaṅma/ Janma Tithi in the transit chart when Ravi/ the Sun revisits the Jaṅma Sūrya/ Janma Surya Lagna. In other words the horoscope is cast for the moment when the exact Tithi or the angular distance between the Sun and the Moon is repeated as at birth when the Sun is in the natal Sun sign. The Tithi denotes the element of water/ Jala and therefore shows connection, social events, the flow of things, love, romance, marriage, feeling, wealth, comforts and money. Therefore many of the nicer things in life can be quite accurately studied from this horoscope.

The dynamic aspects of the horoscope are studied through the Mahādaśās/ Mahadashas in the Tithi Aṣṭottarī Daśā (Tithi Ashtottari Dasha) scheme and the year is divided and studied through the various periodicities. Ketu being the overlord of the Daśā (Dasha) does not have a Daśā (Dasha) assigned in the system.

Note: This work details the horoscopic evaluation for three years each for a couple subsequent to a prior evaluation. The Analysis thus results in a customised work where three successive years in the lives of a couple are evaluated through the Tithi Pravesh Chakra Analysis. This is especially useful once the initial work on the horoscope has been done through the device of the Detailed Chart Analysis or the Detailed Dual Analysis as in this case.

Dear Consulter,
One had the chance to delve into the previous work done for your family. Specifically, the Detailed Dual Analysis that I had written for you and your husband contains some very crucial information in this regard. Regarding your husband, one could see two very dominant factors, one the Matri Shrapa/ the Curse of the Moon and the Pitri Rina/ the debt to the forefathers. In this light it is very heartening indeed that the remedial measures in the form of Shraddha have been performed as without Tarpan and such remedies, these life areas remain afflicted. I must reiterate the overriding and overwhelming importance of the remedial measures suggested for his horoscope previously. The other dominant factor was the Sade-Sati running in the horoscope which still continues. I must reiterate the background importance of continually reciting the Sri Rudra Chamakam which is the most profound remedial measures for this Gochar/ transit of Saturn. Once these natal afflictions are addressed, the positive features of the horoscope have greater play.
One has found frequently that the positive indications of annual horoscopy give immaculate results once the remedial measures for the birth horoscope and the Rashi Chakra are performed diligently. At the cost of repetition I am highlighting these facets so that there is no confusion at all about their importance. The technique of the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is very sophisticated and works very well in furnishing a picture as to the following distinct facets: (i) the overall nature of the Hindu year: whether the year is likely to demonstrate an overall favourable tenor or an adverse one; (ii) the most dominant themes for the year: this aspect tends to focus on the life areas that emerge in some prominence during the course of that year. This facet of the technique can help us in understanding the focus of the Karmic forces for the year so that we might align ourselves better with them; (iii) the vitality factor/ Prana can also be evaluated to judge the health situation at the outset.
Quite apart from the outline factors enumerated above, the horoscope is to be and shall be evaluated in detail much like the natal horoscope. The Varga Chakra and other areas will be investigated identically as in the natal horoscope. The Dasha applicable to the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is the Tithi Ashtottari Dasha.
With this background information, let me start by looking at your husband’s Tithi Pravesha Chakra for the Hindu year 2008. I will combine some of the facets of the analysis for the three years with standout features from the natal horoscopic Analysis so that the fundamental traits of the Karma to be experienced are rendered explicit.
The Vedic New Year for Your husband in 2008 starts in late January. The Tithi Pravesha Chakra for 2008 is cast for the following data: (Omitted to protect the privacy of the client)
The Lagna/Ascendant rising this year in the Rashi Chakra in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is Tula/ Libra which is neither a Trikona/ trine or Kendra/ quadrant from the natal Lagna in the Rashi Chakra which is Kanya/ Virgo. It is the 2nd House therefrom. So this year cannot be said to be either outright favourable or unfavourable. If the Lagna was in a Dusthana from the natal Lagna in the Rashi Chakra, that is, in the 6th, 8th or the 12th Houses, then it may be said that the year carries an unfavourable tenor. But this is not the case. So, in view of the ongoing Sade-Sati, this may be said to be a middling year of a temperate nature.
The next important determinant in annual horoscopy is the judgments of the various factors relating to the Hora Lord who is akin to the ruler of the year in Hindu annual horoscopy. The Hora Lord for the year 2008-2009 for Your husband is Saturn/ Shani. As Tula Lagna rises in the Rashi Chakra in this year’s Tithi Pravesha Chakra, Shani is the Yogakaraka planet for the Lagna and is capable for giving Rajayoga on its own. Given the fact that the overall nature of the year is not outright positive, Shani being the Hora Lord and Yogakaraka for the rising Lagna offsets much of the lack of outright benefit. This is a positive feature in the Rashi Chakra for the year.
Further, Shani is placed in the 11th Bhava from the Lagna as the 4th and 5th Lord of the chart and can help Your husband advance in order to fulfill his ambitions and desires. Shani is joined Ketu in the 11th Bhava from the Lagna which takes away somewhat from the positive placement of Shani; this is a variant of Jara Yoga and he must refrain from succumbing to an all-suffering attitude as this may interfere with his annual prospects this year. One must point out though that this tendency of checked and curbed at the outset is not likely to prove to be much of an impediment as Shani and Ketu are naturally benefic planets and are considered well-placed in the Upachaya Bhavas denoting natural growth through Parakrama/ self-effort. The 11th Bhava from the Lagna is one such Bhava.
The overall indications as to health can be gleaned from the Vara lord. The Hindu weekday on which this year’s Vedic birthday falls is Ravivar/ Sunday and the Sun is the lord thereof. The sun is placed in the 4th Bhava and is Badhak for Tula Lagna. It may bring unexpected troubles to health but these are very unlikely to be serious. The sun in the 4th House carries the minimum Digbala/ directional strength and therefore, the risk lies in neglect. The symptoms of discomfort must not be neglected this year otherwise this can lead to both visits to hospitals as Budh/ Mercury joined the Sun in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna is the 12th Lord of nursing homes and hospitals. Further, the 4th Bhava from the Lagna is also the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna and trading, stocks, mutual funds and personal health can be sources of significant expenditure.
In this regard I would like to reiterate that as pointed out in the Detailed Dual Analysis, the Curse of the Moon must be remedied otherwise speculation will lead to losses. This is what has come about also. Though I was informed, I think, that remedial measures for the Shrapa have been carried out, there was nothing intimated about actual performance of the remedial measures for the Matri Shrapa. You must attempt to perform these as if I recall correctly upon my revisiting the previous work done, the adverse Moola Dasha for Your husband indicating the fructification of the Shrapa is coming to an end and there is no reason at all why the remedial measures should not be done as they will bring unhindered and immediate relief.
I am certain that you would also try hard to address the Sade-Sati and what remains of the 7 ½ years period of this life-altering Gochar/ transit of Shani through the recitation of the Sri Rudra Chamakam. Despite these ongoing challenges in the horoscope and also despite the fact that the Hindu year has not promised to be outright positive, it is very clear that if the remedial measures including the Ratna/ gemstones advised previously are adhered to, this year also has significant positives.
The Arudha Lagna in the Rashi Chakra this year, showing your husband’s manifest personality lies in the 5th House. The 5th House denotes children and new beginnings. The manifest image can be associated with these life areas this year along with associated factors such as expression of intelligence, fame and attainment. The 5th House is lorded by Shani, the Hora Lord and shows the dominant themes for the year. Rahu is placed here in Kumbha/ Aquarius Rashi which it lords along with Shani. The placement of Rahu in the 5th Bhava can show some non-conformist moves this year. Rahu in the Arudha Lagna cautions against anything rash and mired in confusion so let him take important decisions only after careful deliberation. Chandra is the Karaka for all Arudha Padas and Rahu is opposed to the gentle luminary, therefore, even in its own sign, Rahu poses the danger of giving an unpleasant surprise in external, social, financial and manifest life. If the unconventional energies of Rahu are channeled well then the year can bring in enormous bounty. In fact, if these placements occur in a year which is not conditioned by the Sade-Sati, it is certain to be one of financial windfall.
The 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna shows the source of gains. Jupiter and Venus are placed in Dhanu/ Sagittarius in the 3rd Bhava from the Lagna, which is the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. Guru shows gains from consultancy and this is a strong facet as the planet is placed in Dhanu Rashi. This is the best year for your husband to begin the project you have mentioned. Guru is the Karaka for lengthy writing, teaching, wisdom and expression of something meaningful. Guru is placed very powerfully in Dhanu Rashi which is its Moolatrikona sign and the Graha feels as if it would be best served by following the work that it likes. The 3rd Bhava from the Lagna relates to self-expression and to writing in particular as it also shows working with the hands. Shukra placed with Guru adds to the aesthetics and finesse of the work contemplated. Both these planets in the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna sow the seeds for massive gains. There is Rashi Drishti/ sign aspect of other Grahas to this 3rd Bhava from the Lagna which is also the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna.
Moon/ Chandra and Mars/ Mangal form the Shashi-Mangal Yoga in the 9th Bhava from the Lagna. This in itself is a great combination for significant wealth. As these planets are in Mithun/ Gemini Rashi, they aspect the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna with Rashi Drishti, adding to the source of gains. Thus real estate and public dealing also shape up as avenues for gains. I cannot stress the performance of remedial measures previously communicated to you strongly enough in the light of these promising combinations.
Before I dwell more on these positive combinations from the view point of financial gains, I must pause in the light of some of your specific concerns about your husband. Both the Shashi-Mangal Narayan Dasha Shukra-Chandra Yoga also go by the name of Rudra Yoga. Both of these are adverse for health and specifically cause disturbances in blood pressure. Apart from that Guru governs the blood sugar and it is Shukra who causes imbalances in the ability to handle the blood sugar. Thus diabetes is usually precipitated in the Vimshottari Dasha of Shukra in the radix. Shukra opposes the effective handling of blood sugar because it is naturally inimical to Guru.
The Rogapada/ A6 is the manifest expression of illness. The Shashi-Mangal Yoga in the 9th Bhava from the Lagna is conjoined the Shatrupada/ A6 in the 9th House. Symptomatic appearance of both the conditions you have mentioned can happen this year. Guru though in its own sign is placed in the 3rd Bhava which is its Marana Karaka Sthana placement: it is quite uncomfortable there. The Yoga of Guru and Shukra aspects the A6 with Rashi Drishti.
There is Gajakesari Yoga formed by the excellent mutual aspect of Guru and Chandra. This can make the year very positive even given the limitations stated at the outset.
The year is adverse for the mother as seen from the Rashi Chakra for this instant Tithi Pravesha Chakra. The Karaka Bhava for the mother is the 4th house. The Badhak Surya is placed there with the 12th Lord Mercury. Reckoned from the 4th Bhava as Lagna, Sun is the 8th Lord and Budh is the 6th Lord. This does not bode well for her as seen from Your husband’s chart. Chandra is the Karaka for the mother. It shows Your husband’s mental experience of the mother this year. Chandra is joined Mars and is aspected by Venus, which forms two Rudra Yogas making this an extremely tough year for her health. Ordinarily, the aspect of Guru could have salvaged the situation but Guru is in Marana Karaka Sthana and hardly able to better the situation. The manifest expression of this facet can be seen from the Arudha Pada of the 4th House, the A4. This is placed in the 6th Bhava from the Lagna and in the 2nd Bhava from the Arudha Lagna, aspected by Rahu by Graha Drishti/ planetary sight. The lord of the Arudha Pada is Guru placed in Marana Karaka Sthana. All indications seem to point at a worsening of the situation with regard to the mother.
Unless he remedies the factors I have stated speculation and investment even in mutual funds is unlikely to be productive. Especially this Hindu year, this area should not be ventured into as he will most likely lose the money: the reason I have stated before. Budh the Karaka is in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. However, hospitality and investment in real estate are also good areas to think about, as is the hotel/ motel business as Shukra, Mangal, Chandra and Guru are all involved with the source of gains in the Rashi Chakra this year. For more specific details regarding career choices for the year, let us look at the Dashamsha Chakra for the year.
The Hora Lord Shani is placed in the 10th Bhava in the Dashamsha Chakra showing significant events relating to career. Shani in the 10th House is otherwise not welcome as it can threaten a sudden rise and fall. It is joined Venus, the 3rd and 8th Lord. Shukra is a bad planet for this Dashamsha Chakra. The Dashamsha Chakra reveals that your husband must avoid adventure the professional ventures at all costs this year and take extremely conservative and well-thought out steps no matter how inhibited they might seem. This ties in well with the pressures of the Sade-Sati. The 5th Lord Moon is placed in the 8th House in Marana Karaka Sthana showing that emotional and radical new beginnings are earmarked for failure and disappointment. The Lagna Lord Guru is placed in the 2nd House of motivation and future. It is Jupiter he must rely on this year as in the Rashi Chakra this planet promises gains. Rahu is in the Lagna as the 12th Lord and Ketu is in the 7th Bhava as the 9th Lord. I would not recommend partnership this year as the person would be bossy and might want to take a leadership role.
The best option appears to be research based work such as writing. Anxiety and impatience must be avoided as this Dashamsha Chakra warns against any sudden moves in the career. Regarding his writing and book he will be best advised to include distant and foreign sources, publishers and others who might be involved with his work. The placement of Rahu, Saturn and Venus points to that. If the Dashamsha Chakra was more supportive, then the Rashi Chakra was showing heavy quantum of gains. In this sense, this year is more about laying foundations.
The Tithi Ashtottari Dasha applicable to the chart is given below for a view of the timelines operating in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra.
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):
Maha Dashas:
Ven: 2008-01-15 - 2008-03-30
Sun: 2008-03-30 - 2008-04-20
Moon: 2008-04-20 - 2008-06-12
Mars: 2008-06-12 - 2008-07-10
Merc: 2008-07-10 - 2008-09-09
Sat: 2008-09-09 - 2008-10-15
Jup: 2008-10-15 - 2008-12-20
Rah: 2008-12-20 - 2009-02-02
Ven: 2009-02-02 - 2009-04-18
The year starts off with the Dasha of Venus which will tend to give the results of Guru due to Yuti. The theme of gains and overall optimism and width will come but Jupiter will give adverse events related to mother, being the lord of A4 in Marana Karaka Sthana. In the Dashamsha Chakra, Shukra Dasha will give the results of the Hora Lord Shani and your spouse may take some important career decision. Let him do so with the caution I have recommended hereinabove.
The next period of the Sun is likely to lead to expenditure as the planets are placed in the 12th from the Arudha Lagna. The period may also bring some unforeseen troubles. Your husband may want to work for someone in this period.
The next two Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Moon and Mars run the risk of precipitating the health related issues that I have written about previously but will also likely bring mass exposure and interaction with sources of gains. The Guru-Mangal Yoga will prompt the spouse to make strong plans for the year with greater clarity and forthrightness. He should be especially careful to not attempt any Greenfield project at this time because new projects undertaken in the Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of the Moon shown by the 5th House lordship of Moon are susceptible to damage and loss, shown by the 8th Bhava placement of Chandra. The only exception is research which is a signification of the 8th Bhava. The placement of Venus, the 8th Lord, in the 10th House also suggests this and only this.
Budh Tithi Ashtottari Dasha will precipitate heavy expenditure as it is placed in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. Foreign lands and learning, communication and the like could become dominant themes during such a phase. The next Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Shani will be the most crucial and important phase of the year as this will be the Dasha of the Hora Lord, placed in the 11th Bhava from the Lagna and in the 7th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. He would try and emerge out of the shell of the past few years imposed by the Gochar of Shani and may feel susceptible in some manner. Otherwise Shani is well placed and will give a very realistic idea as to what needs to be surmounted in order for life to fully fructify. Mercury Mahadasha prior to Shani will also give some intermittent and independent work of a contractual sort. Shani Mahadasha as that of the Hora Lord will give some important events pertaining to the career and this will likely involve foreigners and foreign lands. Shani is also the 12th Lord of the Dashamsha Chakra.
Guru Tithi Ashtottari Dasha is likely to be extremely good as the planet is placed in the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna and also in the 2nd Bhava of the Dashamsha Chakra as the Lagna Lord. Financially the period will be very promising and motivation and specific direction in the career will emerge. The future patterns and directions in working life will emerge in this Dasha. Consultancy and writing etc will reveal their true import in this period. Rahu is in the 5th Bhava in the Arudha Lagna and shows some unconventional out-of-the-box thinking at the social and manifest level. As suggested, he ought to guard against moves that may cause anxiety at the overt and visible level.
The next Hindu year starts on (data omitted for reasons of privacy). The first factor to be noticed for the year is that the Lagna rising is Dhanu/ Sagittarius which is the 4th Bhava/ quadrant/ Kendra from the natal Lagna in the Rashi Chakra, Kanya/ Virgo. This indicates that the overall tenor of the year is positive. This basically means that if we take the Hindu year to be an independent entity then it promises to favour us. The more specific factors must be examined from the Yogas obtaining in the horoscope for the year.
The Hora Lord/ the ruler of the year is again Shani and it is retrograde, placed in the Bhagya Sthana in the 9th Bhava from the Lagna. This placement of Shani is not entirely welcome as it interferes with luck and fructification of destined positives. Again Shani happens to be in the 7th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. The 7th from the Arudha Lagna is the Dwara through which the Jatak emerges into the world and the placement of Vakra Shani here shows that your husband still has to wait for plans to fully fructify. You must note at this stage that if the Karmic Dashas as judged in the natal horoscope show that adverse Karma is basically over and the positive time has started and still one runs into a heavy and problematic Tithi Pravesha Chakra, the in the ultimate analysis what shall happen is that the better features from the radix will not fructify fully in that year.
Conversely, if the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is excellent and there are some issues to iron out in the radix then the native shall feel that his troubles have been mitigated to a considerable extent. If, however, both the radix and the Tithi Pravesha Chakra show undiluted positives then the native can reap a rich harvest due to the auspicious confluence of Jyotish factors.
There are five planets in the 2nd Bhava from the Lagna with Guru Neecha and Surya in Parivartana with Shani. These are not very good factors at all. Further, all these planets are in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna showing losses and expenses. Guru gets Neechabhanga/ cancellation of its debility due to exalted Mars but specifically real estate consultancy must be completely avoided this year as it may make a very heavy dent in the finances. Mangal exalted will show extreme expenses on commercial property. The planets are joined the A6 and continue to show challenges to the health and some other issues to iron out.
Stocks, mutual funds and the like should be avoided this year but if he is able to make beginnings in the hotel/ motel business in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for 2008, then this will be an extremely rewarding avenue. The reason is that Shukra, the Karaka for this business, is exalted in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna and in the 2nd Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. This planet can bring in immense gains for the year because it also aspects the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna, which happens to be the Lagna itself in the Rashi Chakra. His own resources, effort and intelligence will bring the fruits in this business and for that reason it will be very rewarding. He should limit himself to this professional avenue for the year as anything else will be prone to extreme losses and expenses as seen from the Rashi Chakra. The other details can be had from the Dashamsha Chakra.
His mind is likely to be very troubled through the year since the Naisargika Karaka for psychology, the Moon, is placed in the 8th Bhava in Grahan Yoga with Ketu. The 8th Bhava is Marana Karaka Sthana placement for Moon and the only saving grace is that the Graha is placed in its own sign. The worst experiences of the emotional mind are avoided due to this. The Gajakesari Yoga persists this year as well but the fullest benefits do not come, just as in the preceding year. In the preceding year, Guru was in the 3rd Bhava in the Marana Karaka Sthana while this year it is debilitated in Guru Chandala Yoga with Rahu and also in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna.
The Dashamsha Chakra reveals that this year he can think of partnership as the same would be on a more equal footing. Independent enterprise would be rewarding. Writing and communication can be positive as Budh is exalted in the 7th Bhava from the Lagna. The 5th Lord Moon in the Lagna shows new beginnings. The foreign influence continues this year and this is intriguing as your family is already settled abroad. The Lagna Lord is debilitated and placed with Rahu in Guru Chandala Yoga. Debility in Varga Chakra related to finances and work is not bad and can bring new openings. This can specifically be in writing. Shani is also debilitated in the 2nd House but retrograde showing that this is a year of serious effort towards securing a more reliable future work profile.
Your husband will show a more independent streak in work due to Mangal placed in the 9th Bhava in the Arudha Lagna in the Dashamsha Chakra this year.
The Tithi Ashtottari Dashas for the year are given below:
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):
Maha Dashas:
Ven: 2009-02-03 - 2009-04-12
Sun: 2009-04-12 - 2009-05-02
Moon: 2009-05-02 - 2009-06-20
Mars: 2009-06-20 - 2009-07-17
Merc: 2009-07-17 - 2009-09-10
Sat: 2009-09-10 - 2009-10-13
Jup: 2009-10-13 - 2009-12-14
Rah: 2009-12-14 - 2010-01-23
Ven: 2010-01-23 - 2010-04-01
The Shukra Mahadasha is the best for starting the year because it is the single best placed planet in the Rashi Chakra. It is exalted and placed in the 2nd from the Arudha Lagna: it will sustain and feed the external image in society and in financial and working life. It is also likely to bring valuable realisations regarding aesthetics and such other inputs which may prove to be important from the viewpoint of the business he is contemplating. The following Sun Tithi Ashtottari Dasha will bring sporadic work opportunity interspersed with short breaks as the 6th Lord Sun is in the 3rd Bhava in the Dashamsha Chakra. At the mainly physical level, the Graha is part of the cluster in the 12th from the Arudha Lagna so not much might be expected of it.
The Moon Tithi Ashtottari Dasha, though afflicted in the Rashi Chakra and likely to bring intense emotional experiences and some unrest, is well placed in the Dashamsha Chakra and could open fresh avenues in work as this planet is the 5th Lord placed in the Lagna. Mars Tithi Ashtottari Dasha which follows can be impressive if Your husband does not succumb to a burst of misplaced drive and aggression: Mars is exalted in the Rashi Chakra. In the work arena it can give independent thoughts of how to proceed. This period may also be one of the most important through the year as it will define the working image for the year.
Mercury Tithi Ashtottari Dasha will be excellent for communication and writing in the work sphere but it is yet again in the 12th from the Arudha Lagna in the Rashi Chakra, therefore investments in the stock market or in mutual funds is not recommended during this period. Independent work and meeting very suave potential partners in work could be a feature of this phase.
The Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of the Hora Lord Shani will be the most crucial period for the year and because it will first bring a sense of being locked in and not being able to bring out of the grip of circumstances due to its placement in the 9th Bhava from the Lagna, Your husband will try hard to open the Dwara/ doorway to the image and emerge in his own right. This will take serious effort and it will be in this period he will try and make this effort. Shani is debilitated in the 2nd House in the Dashamsha Chakra and shows motivational factors regarding the future of his work. He will strive out of concern for the future of his work, seen from the 2nd House from the Lagna because it happens to be the 5th House (future) from the 10th Bhava of Karma. Both Guru and Rahu Tithi Ashtottari Dashas that follow will try and continue the theme of effort as Guru is the Neecha Lagna Lord placed in the 11th Bhava of gains, income, opening up and extroversion: as indicated, planets in debility in the Dashamsha Chakra are as good as exalted ones.
The chart for the Hindu year for 2010 is cast for the following data: (data omitted for privacy reasons).
Even though one wishes fervently that easier Karmic patterns visit you and your family at the earliest, there is no getting around communicating the fact that testing times do not appear to be entirely over for Your husband. The Lagna rising for the year is Simha/ Leo which is the 12th Bhava from the natal Kanya Lagna. The 12th Bhava is considered a Dusthana/ evil Bhava and therefore, the year must be deemed to be less than favourable. The astonishing thing is that Shani is the Hora Lord for the third straight year in a row and this is a very surprising feature.
The Hora Lord is a functional malefic for Simha Lagna and is placed in the 2nd Bhava from the Lagna. The Lagna is in a Papa-Kartari Yoga formed by Shani in the 2nd Bhava and Mangal in the 12th Bhava. Your husband may feel trapped between the realities of dependant family and expenses. Shani in the 2nd Bhava cautions against bad speech and junk food. He must avoid stimulants through the year. The thing about Mangal for Simha Lagna is that it is a Yogakaraka planet and can give Rajayoga on its own without the help of any other Graha.
There is a specific rule about Yogakaraka planets. Mangal is Neecha in the 12th Bhava from the Lagna in Karka/ Cancer Rashi. This can give a powerful Rajayoga. The best thing is that it is not conjoined any other Graha else the significations of that conjoined planet would have been destroyed. This is not the case here. In its Tithi Ashtottari Dasha Mangal can give great material benefits despite the ordinary overall nature of the year for your husband.
The year shows marked improvement in health as the Vedic weekday on which the year commences is Guruvar/ Thursday. Guru is almost exalted in Kumbha Rashi and aspects the Lagna. It will protect the health. The Moon is again afflicted in the Rahu-Ketu axis but it is placed in the Arudha Lagna. He may tend to be slightly more sociable this year but must avoid mistakes as Ketu in the Arudha Lagna threatens the same.
Guru shows the most dominant source of gains as it aspects the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna with Rashi Drishti. It does appear that Jupiter has been providing the saving grace through the preceding years and it would be advisable for Your husband to work with the opportunities relating to consultancy and writing apart from the avenues in hospitality which also appeared positive in the first annual horoscope that we worked with.
Once again the foreign angle and the unhindered flights of the mind appear dominant as Guru is in Parivartana/ exchange Yoga with Neecha Rahu in Dhanu Rashi in the 5th Bhava in the 7th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. Due to this exchange the spouse has a realistic chance of emerging into the world on his terms this year because Jupiter will aid this effort. This year learning, reading and broadening his horizons will be very important for him as the Lagna Lord showing applied intelligence is in the 6th Bhava of growth through effort and is conjoined the 3rd lord Shukra. This forms Dhimantah Yoga which is indicative of notable intelligence and this shall be visible through the year.
Despite the fact that the Lagna rising is in the 12th Bhava from the natal Lagna, this year would prove to be full of opportunity which is evident from a look at the Dashamsha Chakra. Ketu the 10th Lord is placed in the Lagna forming Simhasana Yoga: there is a real chance of attainment this year. Please have him perform the remedial measures by this stage fully and without exceptions.
Once again own work and independent enterprise appears to be the dominant work theme. It is very interesting that nowhere through this extensive study of three years has the 6th House of service in the Dashamsha Chakra been stronger than the 7th Bhava of partnership, business and independent work. There are three Grahas in the 7th Bhava including Mangal and Shani: this shows some prospects of working with real estate through the year and given the Rajayoga formed by the Yogakaraka Mangal, Neecha in the Rashi Chakra in the 12th House there is a strong chance of heavy financial gains through land and commercial property and dealing in such areas this year.
Venus is the Yogakaraka in the Dashamsha Chakra for the year and is exalted in the 2nd Bhava from the Lagna. Whatever he wants to accomplish in hotels, motels, aesthetics and hospitality will come easily and with success and these areas will motivate him strongly through the year. Given the great strength of Venus I would recommend pursuing all these avenues without fear. Now, this is a very fine look at the Karmic trends through the three years for the spouse and you must combine this with the findings in the radix and how the days unfold in the three years. This would require frequent reference to this paper from time to time and also to the Mahadasha dates given hereinabove and below as well.
The Tithi Ashtottari Dasha for the year is given below:
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):

Ven: 2010-01-23 - 2010-04-01

Venus Mahadasha again triggers the Hindu year and since the Graha is joined the Lagna Lord in the 6th Bhava from the Lagna it shows heavy thinking and other characteristics of the Dhimantah Yoga. Crucially, in the Dashamsha Chakra, the planet is exalted in the 2nd Bhava from the Lagna and can show future guidance and plans taking shape especially in the domains ruled by the planet such as cultural settings and the hospitality sector. It is also the 10th Lord of the Rashi Chakra and is quite likely to give important events pertaining to professional matters in its Tithi Ashtottari Dasha. The next Dasha of the Sun, while good for intellectual pursuits will show a scarcity of resources in the realm of work as the planet is placed in Marana Karaka Sthana in the 12th Bhava in Dashamsha Chakra and since it is Karaka of that Varga Chakra, caution would be well advised in career matters during such a phase.
The Moon Tithi Ashtottari Dasha is much like the Sun in work related matters as the two are conjoined in the Dashamsha Chakra in the 12th Bhava. In the Rashi Chakra, of course, the Graha is placed in the Arudha Lagna but is joined Ketu and the social interaction is likely to be curtailed by the possibility of mistakes in action.
He can look forward to the next Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Mars as being one of the phases for the year since the Graha is Yogakaraka for the Lagna and is debilitated in the 12th House giving Rajayoga. Even in the Dashamsha Chakra, it is placed in the 7th House of own work and is likely to be a fine period to strive in the area of real estate etc.
The Budh Mahadasha can give new openings in the realm of career but is afflicted by Rahu in the 5th House in the Rashi Chakra, so lack of clarity should be guarded against. The Mahadasha of the Hora Lord can give painstaking advances in the career as it is joined the Rajyapada/ A10 in the Rashi Chakra but in the Dashamsha Chakra it is well-placed so the avenues opened by the Mangal Dasha can be continued during this phase.
Guru Mahadasha will support the external life as it is placed in the 9th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna but these effects will be felt more in the succeeding Rahu Mahadasha due to the exchange between the two Grahas. It is quite evident that the road is not completely clear for Your husband just yet and the benefits of the better phase shall take some time in registering as the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for the three years are fairly ordinary. Having said that, with the Sade-Sati abating, relief will be discernible and in order to maximize the positives, at the risk of repeating myself many times over, I must again remind you that the remedies must be performed.
The Hindu year for 2008 starts for you on (data omitted for reasons of privacy).
Just as with the Tithi Pravesha Chakra of the spouse, we must first evaluate whether the rising sign in the Lagna in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is well placed from the Lagna in the Rashi Chakra in the radix. The Lagna rising in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is Makar which is the 4th Bhava from your natal Tula Lagna. This promises an overall favourable year.
The Hora Lord is Venus and this planet is placed in the 7th Bhava with the Sun and Ketu. The 7th Bhava relates to marriage and shows a focus on marriage this year. Shukra is also the 5th and 10th Lord of the chart and also shows some developments in the expression of intelligence seen from the 5th Bhava and also skills in work seen from the lordship of the 10th Bhava.
This is a sensitive year for the marriage though as the 8th Bhava showing the source of the Mangalsutra is occupied by both Mangal and Shani. These planets also aspect the 2nd Bhava from the Upapada Lagna showing the issues facing the marriage. You must be aware of these facets and conduct yourself accordingly. These things are easier said than done but since you know the finer details about the annual experience based on the Tithi Pravesha Chakra in your husband’s horoscope, maybe this can turn out to be slightly easier.
The fact that Shukra lords the 2nd from the Upapada Lagna and is joined two malefics, the Sun and Ketu makes these issues notable. Of course we have already examined this factor from the natal chart so all that is needed is to minimize the disquiet that may result from trials and stresses in daily life.
I am stating this because even otherwise the 8th Lord Sun is in the 7th Bhava and the Naisargika Karaka for marriage is cursed. The 7th Lord showing the spouse is also joined Rahu and aspected by the Sun in the Lagna pointing at some emotional upheavals due to the experience in the marital realm.
Mangal and Shani in the 6th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna in the Rashi Chakra for the year promise excellent prospects and drive in the social, financial and material realm. You would be in the mood to ruthlessly overpower all challenges in work. Mangal and Shani in such a location bring Kshatriya attributes of fearlessness and there may be an element of fixity of purpose and ambition through the year.
These indications are also confirmed by the placement of Guru in Dhanu Rashi. However, this planet is retrograde and indicates three times Cheshta Bala or the desire to put in effort in order to succeed. The energy with such a planet is kingly in scope and you are likely to work tirelessly and with incredible energy towards your professional goals. Guru is the lord of the Arudha Lagna and placed in the 10th Bhava therefrom in Simhasana Yoga. Through sustained and directed effort you are likely to attain a position of prominence in work and the pressures that you may have been facing after the change you have made at your place of work is largely a product of the Kantak Shani operating. You have been advised Upaya to deal with the same and once you do that the Rashi Chakra this year is capable of delivering very good things in the career.
Recognition of merit will also not pose a problem though to attain this it will take some doing. The Mantra Pada/ A5 is placed in the 7th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna showing that this recognition will open the Dwara for you this year and the recognition of your working abilities will properly allow you to emerge as a professional in the new field. There is no Graha in the A5 but the lord Mercury is powerfully placed in Mithun Rashi showing computers and software writing and the A5 is aspected both by a strong Budh and a strong Guru, assuring good returns in this direction.
The Dashamsha Chakra likewise shows good things. The 6th Bhava is the house of service and has an exalted and Vakra Guru joined Venus therein. Guru is akin to debility and being the 2nd Lord shows that this year you would form the foundational framework for future growth. It does appear that you have made the perfect career move and if the progress is slow then it is only because of the Kantak Shani operating. Guru shows immense work load and effort and Shukra also makes it clear that a corporate environment and management strategies form the fulcrum of the work profile.
Consulter, the Dashamsha Chakra for the year is very conclusive because Shukra and Chandra are in Parivartana/ exchange in the Dashamsha Chakra showing the product (Moon) management (Shukra) will sow the seeds for independence in the work profile due to this choice being made. I say this because Chandra is placed in the 9th Bhava of independence and the boss. It could also mean very fortunate and career-furthering interaction with your superiors in work. The effects of Gajakesari Yoga resulting in fame and excellence in work shall also come about due to this.
Your other work with children etc is fully supported by the Karma shown in the Dashamsha Chakra as Guru is the Karaka for children and has a powerful Yoga with Shukra and Chandra. Guru is also the 11th Lord of gains and you can take it that all this facets will finally lead to financial gains as well. These gains are also supported by the Yoga between Shukra and Chandra which always leads to heavy money income and is very welcome in Varga Chakra that deal with Artha or matters of finance and material.
Rahu is the Lagna Lord and is powerfully placed in the 4th Bhava: it may lead to slightly erratic and long working hours but the same would be conducive to growth. This is also supported by the fact that Mangal is exalted and forms Guru-Mangal Yoga. The only think to check would be that if you feel something is not being done right do not compromise your position because it offends you. If it is possible for you to take a mellow view of the same, then do so as it will diffuse some aggressive interruptions in the excellent work situation for the year.
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):
Maha Dasas:
Sun: 2008-07-12 - 2008-08-02
Moon: 2008-08-02 - 2008-09-25
Mars: 2008-09-25 - 2008-10-23
Merc: 2008-10-23 - 2008-12-23
Sat: 2008-12-23 - 2009-01-28
Jup: 2009-01-28 - 2009-04-05
Rah: 2009-04-05 - 2009-05-18
Ven: 2009-05-18 - 2009-07-31
Sun: 2009-07-31 - 2009-08-21
The Sun is likely to be a malefic period because it is the 8th Lord placed in the 7th Bhava and may stress the marriage. The Moon Tithi Ashtottari Dasha though likely to persist with the emotional issues and maybe intensify them would be quite good for the career and you would be able to forge ahead. The independence and happy working relationship with the bosses and superiors would come about fairly early in the year. In fact, this Dasha could be said to be formative of the working image for the rest of the year.
The Mangal, Budh and Shani Dashas are all good for matters material and for professional growth. Especially the Mangal and Shani Dashas are very fruitful due to their good placement from the Arudha Lagna in the Rashi Chakra. They will help you in driving forward and forging ahead with your plans. However, the Mangal and Shani Dashas are adverse for marital matters as they are badly placed in the Mangalya Bhava showing a lot of domestic issues and tensions.
Guru Mahadasha in the Tithi Ashtottari Dasha scheme will be the best for the year as it is the lord of the Arudha Lagna placed in the 10th Bhava therefrom and it is also well-placed in the 6th Bhava from the Lagna in the Dashamsha Chakra showing very potent work and service profile for the year. The results attributed to the work and job in the preceding paragraphs will accrue in this Mahadasha of Guru.
Rahu Tithi Ashtottari Dasha is not good for the personal front as it will precipitate much of the anxiety and delusion that is likely to come in the Chandra Tithi Ashtottari Dasha referred to above but on the professional front apart from the erratic working hours it would be a good period as the Lagna Lord is placed in Vrishabh Rashi in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna.
The Venus Dasha would be that of the Hora Lord and would show the most important events for the year. You must be cautious regarding the experience from love and marriage while the working life shall continue to prosper due to the fortunate exchange between Shukra and Chandra: this appears to be a very positive and heartening year for the profession.
True Copy of the Hindu Year, cast for the following data (omitted for reasons of privacy).
This year, the Lagna rising is Tula/ Libra itself, showing a favourable year again. This is the same as the Lagna in the Rashi Chakra in the radix and shows positive forces emanating from the Hindu New Year. The Hora Lord is Guru who is the ruler or the king of the year and this planet is placed in debility in Makar Rashi: this detracts from the overall positive nature of the Hindu year. Further, the planet is in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna and joined Rahu in Guru Chandala Yoga. This really weakens the chart and the Hora Lord. Even otherwise, Guru is a functionally malefic Graha for Tula rising and this too takes away from the benefits of this rising sign for the year.
The Lagna Lord Shukra is placed in the 9th Bhava is a friendly Rashi In Mithun and this is a good Rajayoga of application of intelligence and decision making to benefit one’s own self in a Dharmic and well-considered way. Mangal just as the previous year is placed in the 8th Bhava stressing the marriage somewhat due to arguments and fights and it is also the 7th Lord of the Rashi Chakra in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra. Thus, the cautionary stroke struck in this direction for the past year must be continued to some extent through this year as well. The Guru Chandala Yoga and the presence of Moon with the combination can again lead to some serious emotional unrest and psychological difficulties especially as these Yogas occur in the Sukha Bhava of the chart showing meddling and interference with the happiness and sating factor. The Rashi Drishti of Budh and Mangal to the 7th Bhava of intimacy might make for an element of indifference and neglect in domestic harmony.
These indications are corroborated and confirmed by the mutually 6-8 position of the Arudha Lagna and the Upapada Lagna in the chart as too the affliction of the Upapada Lagna by the Yuti of Surya and Ketu while the 2nd Bhava from the Upapada Lagna shows the presence of Budh and Shani aspected by the terrible Guru Chandala Yoga. You must guard against coldness and absence of interest in the other facets of the marriage for the year as they can bring friction into life.
The Hora Lord is excellently placed in the Dashamsha Chakra in the Lagna showing independent growth in the profession and a lot of optimism and wisdom manifesting in official decisions taken by you. The 6th House of job and service is again stronger than the 7th Bhava of independent enterprise as Budh the Karaka for computers and software is placed there. It specifically indicates software writing and codes. In Vrishchik/ Scorpio you would do well to involve yourself with research aspects of work or those that involve depth and study; of course one is not advocating a return to development but you would probably know how best to apply this information to your work.
Budh is also the Lagna Lord for the Dashamsha Chakra in this Tithi Pravesha Chakra and shows complete immersion of the self in work. It is also the 4th Lord and working hours would depend on you and how you chose to pace yourself. The 5th Lord Venus is placed in the 5th Bhava with Rahu, the 9th Lord and these are excellent indications for exploring fresh avenues and new frontiers in work. The debility of Shani is also good for finances in the 11th Bhava from the Lagna.
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):
Maha Dashas:
Sun: 2009-07-31 - 2009-08-20
Moon: 2009-08-20 - 2009-10-09
Mars: 2009-10-09 - 2009-11-04
Merc: 2009-11-04 - 2009-12-30
Sat: 2009-12-30 - 2010-02-01
Jup: 2010-02-01 - 2010-04-04
Rah: 2010-04-04 - 2010-05-14
Ven: 2010-05-14 - 2010-07-21
Sun: 2010-07-21 - 2010-08-10
The Sun Tithi Ashtottari Dasha is positive for accentuating the skill structure in overall work and also for an intellectually fuelled drive to participate through the year.
Moon Mahadasha is bad for the mind and emotional peace due to its involvement with Guru Chandala Yoga in the 4th House and due to its gross affliction in the Rahu-Ketu axis. In the Dashamsha Chakra it brings fulfillment of desires only after a detached submission to work.
Mangal Mahadasha stresses personal relations and marriage and due to these issues you may have to take a short break from work or even disassociated from the personal front, work may register a minor hiatus through the operation of this Mahadasha. All of Budh, Shani and Guru Dashas are positive for work and though Guru is the Hora Lord, I must say that at the physical level of the Rashi Chakra this year, its bad affliction in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna shows a very stressful time. Do be careful regarding children and expenses and the consequent loss to mental peace as this happens in the Sukha Bhava.
Both Rahu and Venus Tithi Ashtottari Dasha are unambiguously positive for the work but the Rahu Mahadasha will be poor for happiness due to the formation of the Guru Chandala Yoga.
True Copy of the Tithi Pravesha Chakra cast for the following data: (omitted for reasons of privacy).
The Lagna rising in the Rashi Chakra for the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is again Tula/ Libra showing that the intent of the Hindu year as an entity is to favour and can be considered positive. The rest shall depend on the Hora Lord and the individual Graha placements for the year in the horoscope. The Hora Lord Shani is the Yogakaraka for Tula Lagna and as this Yoga happened with another Graha for one of the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for Your husband, so too the Yogakaraka Hora Lord Shani is placed in the 12th Bhava of the chart giving a profound Rajayoga.
There is a rule that a malefic Yogakaraka gives Rajayoga in the 12th Bhava from the Lagna or another Dusthana/ evil Bhava therefrom. The bad thing is that Mangal is joined this planet and the natural significations of this latter planet are stressed in some way; the Naisargika Karakattwa of Mangal is siblings. If I recall correctly I have spoken to one of your brothers over the phone. So the sibling (s) ought to be careful in matters that could be identified based on their own charts. The Lagna Lord Shukra is well placed with the 9th Lord Budh in the 11th Bhava of fulfillment of desires. This is also a straight forward Rajayoga as a Kendra lord is joined a Trikona lord: this also goes by the name of Lakshmi-Narayan Yoga and shows a fortunate union of effort shown by Kendra lordship and divine blessings shown by the 9th Bhava lordship of Budh. However, the theme of aggression that had been running in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for the past two years is absent in this final year of analysis. In fact this shows itself to be a year of changes and inner transformation as the two benefic planets Shukra and Budh are joined the A8/ Ashtama Pada in the 3rd Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. The transformation will not be severe in nature but will accompany a gentle manifestation is society rather than the undiluted ambition and drive that your charts usually exhibit. Ketu debilitated in the Arudha Lagna also shows an introverted and spiritual or reflective image through the year in the eyes of those who know you: you yourself, friends, family and acquaintances.
Despite the gentleness, the very Grahas causing inner transformation also show themselves to be the main sources of gains. Budh shows software and those connected with computers while Shukra show the private sector.
This is a much better year for the marriage and there is focus on the relationship and romance shown by Shukra in the 7th Bhava in the Navamsha Chakra. In the Rashi Chakra, the Upapada Lagna is well fortified and the 2nd Bhava from the Arudha Lagna is occupied by great benefics sealing the marital bond strongly. Hardware and mathematics and computation become string factors in the Dashamsha Chakra shown by the placement of Ketu in the 6th Bhava of job and service reckoned from the Lagna. This is the 3rd straight year in which the 6th Bhava of service is stronger than the 7th Bhava of independent practice and business.
Contractual nature of work is indicated or work spaced by short breaks as the 6th co-lord Mars is placed with the Sun in the Lagna. Venus gives a fresh line of work and a new break in the best possible way since it is the 5th Lord exalted in the 10th Bhava of attainment, growth and excellence in work. Maybe product management will yield its richest harvest through the year or it would be the positive influence of Venus in some way.
The exaltation of Budh in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna shows excellent working hours to your liking where optimum output accrues. Health would be good through the year as the Vara lord Moon has Digbal in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna in the Rashi Chakra in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra. Both the 6th and 8th Lords are also well-placed. In the 2009 Tithi Pravesha Chakra you need to take special care of your health as the Vara Lord Guru is badly afflicted in the 4th Bhava in Guru Chandala Yoga. It is also the 6th Lord and so sugar, weight, calm evaluation of the trials all need to be watched due to the affliction of Guru. The chest region and the mind are vulnerable areas for manifestation of illness for that year. In 2008 gynecological issues are likely to manifest as there is a blemish in the year caused by Shukra being the Vara lord and the Hora Lord and afflicted in the 7th Bhava of the privates.
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):
Maha Dashas:
Sun: 2010-07-20 - 2010-08-11
Moon: 2010-08-11 - 2010-10-04
Mars: 2010-10-04 - 2010-11-01

Ven: 2011-05-26 - 2011-08-08
Sun: 2011-08-08 - 2011-08-30
The Sun Tithi Ashtottari Dasha will heighten the skill structure in work just as the previous year because the Graha has Digbala in the 10th Bhava from the Lagna. Do not take any drastic professional decisions in the Chandra Mahadasha as the Graha is placed in Marana Karaka Sthana in the 8th Bhava in the Dashamsha Chakra relating to the career. Mangal can bring some short breaks in the career and will be an unusual period. Either the challenges relating to the siblings will come in this period or in Shani Dasha. I would think they would come in the Shani Dasha but the same remains to be seen. Budh Mahadasha is likely to give excellent results and be creative of the working image through the year which would be of a very talented software profession due to the exaltation of Budh in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna in the Dashamsha Chakra. Despite the gentle manifestation of the personality, it would contribute to the gains in the Rashi Chakra as well.
Shani Dasha would be that of the Hora lord and would give the most conspicuous events for the year. The Rajayoga promised will either come in this Dasha or in the preceding Mangal Tithi Ashtottari Dasha. I would predict Rajayoga in the preceding Mangal Tithi Ashtottari Dasha.
Jupiter is likely to be an excellent overall period both at the overall physical level and also at the working level.
Venus Tithi Ashtottari Dasha ending the year can rid the times of some of the confusion fostered by the Rahu Mahadasha and the Shukra Dasha appears to be very promising for the career despite the gentle mannerisms created due to the 3rd Bhava placement from the Arudha Lagna.
It does seem that I was distracted enough to completely ignore the size and nature of this consultancy. You can see the sheer size of the Report. I do not know what I was thinking at the time you commissioned it. In any case, having once begun I could not have compromised on the task and have gone through with this rather massive task.
I trust this will afford a reliable blueprint for the coming years for both you and your husband and give you a realistic impression of what is to come Karmically from year to year. Both the challenges and positives have been sought to be communicated with diligence and frankness.
Best Wishes,
Anurag Sharma.

Composite Chart Analysis-Combining Various Astrology Services in One Analysis

Note- Even though this website contains work which is directly based on the ancient astrological classics and scriptures of India, the effort is to present observations, discussions and conclusions in common parlance as well aso as to make the papers/ analyses composed immediately comprehensible and meaningful to the lay consulter without advanced knowledge of Jyotiṣa.

This and other papers on this website do not contain any reflections on the papers coposed with a specific view to delving deep into the life of  that particular consulter since those are very individualistic in nature and cannot be revealed. However, the focus is always to apply each principle to draw out its direct significance in the life of that person so that the impact is direct and personal and it is not a dull interpretation of a static Yoga.

The periodicities/ Daśās, Ārūḍha Padas, Graha Dṛṣṭi or planetary aspects, Rāśi Dṛṣṭi or sign aspects, Argalā or intervention of astrological entities on other such entities, and so many other factors, to propel these natives of the various Lagnas, with their own characteristics and life paths, are used together and then we can begin to understand the basic framework which results for the purposes of elaborate astrological analysis.

These factors are then carried over to each Varga Cakra of interest and studied with the many, countless tools of esoteric classical Vedic astrology/ Jyotiṣa in order to arrive at specific understandings about the person's life. This is crucial. Humanity has advanced and nations have advanced as far as empirical and material life is concerned and such focused and elaborate work must distinguish between the varying characteristics of people's lives so as to astutely explain to them the reasons and the background and the future propensities about their own lives and not just some general trends that might broadly apply to anyone with similar Yogas. This sort of attention to detail and personalised adherence to the horoscope at hand has to be the hallmark of all consulting.

Central and focal areas of one's life such as health, career, finances, marriage, career, job and business, property, children, parents,foreign travel, spirituality, Mantra, past life and sum total of Karma, and much more such as the co-relations between abilities and their manifestation, timing of important events can all be evaluated and understood with Jyotish. But once again the level of expertise and attention and the unique gift of bridging the gap between the ancient and the contemporary should be such so as to write an in-depth paper/ Analysis for the specific consulter.

What do the various types of Analyses and papers described and reproduced on this website do? A lot of classical references and interpretations are route-maps travelled in order to arrive at advisory conclusions and in all my consulting, they are there also for the reading pleasure of advanced Jyotiṣa enthusiasts and consulters. This is deep and profound knowledge at its core drawn from the unique and renowned mystic heritage of India, and a vast number of consulters are also dedicated Vedic astrology enthusiasts-this elaborate journey in each consulting paper is also undertaken for their benefit. But the ultimate objective is always to gives reponses that directly and unambiguously address the realities, needs and requirements of the person approaching me for solutions.

Note 2-In customised composite astrological work, there are levels and there are levels. There are basic modules where individual horoscopes such as this one are being evaluated. There are advanced modules where corporate entitites desire deep and specific evaluations of inter-personal roles in a given project where some distinct techniques are given for selection of personnel and/  or their suitability for a certain job profile. This sort of investigation cuts to the bone and can solve intricate HR dilemmas as well as streamline group dynamics both in an intra and inter corporate  reference frame.

*Available Jyotiṣa Services/ Vedic Astrology Services and Analyses

Dear ABC,

As discussed in our correspondence prior to this Analysis, the focal areas have to be remedial in nature so that effective techniques can be isolated to better the difficult facets of life in this incarnation.

In order to do this effectively, we will have to study the chart from the points of view, inter alia, of inherent weaknesses/ Doshas as described by Parashar and other Sages in the ancient Jyotish classics as well as the challenges precipitated at various levels by the Mahadasha lord of the Vimshottari Dasha scheme.

Right at the outset, one can see that the birth has occurred on the Amavasya Tithi. The Tithi is of overwhelming importance in Hindu Jyotish and forms an Anga/ Part of the Panchanga/ the Five Parts used to study the Quality of Time in Indian astrology.

Tithi is the mathematical measure of the angular distance between the natal Sun and the natal Moon at the time of birth. We are discussing this so that you know what is causing the problem, to what degree and how it is proposed to be remedied. If you do not know this, you cannot understand your own life and its challenges. Tithi is composed of the Jala Tattwa/ the Watery element. The Jala Tattwa symbolizes prosperity and overall well-being. The overweening importance of the Tithi in the life of the Jatak is the reason for casting the Tithi Pravesha Chakra to study annual propensities for the native in the given Hindu year. It shows the levels of
overall well-being and prosperity. Correct? You understand how important Tithi is?

This is the reason why Parashara listed some Tithis as being struck by inherent flaws in the quality of time at birth. This is specifically listed in the Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra, the immortal classic given to us by the Seer. Your birth on the Amavasya Tithi ought to have been remedied at birth; this is what is recommended but very frequently it is found that the remedy is not done at birth. In fact, sometimes it is not done at all. The reason is not far to seek. If the remedy is done, the misery and difficulties shall be alleviated and the Dosha shall stand rectified. If the Dosha is rectified, then one of the avenues to fulfill Karma shall be exhausted.

In fact, your astrologer was also born on the Amavasya Tithi and apart from the classical exposition and interpretation, also speaks to you from direct personal experience of birth on this malefic lunar date.

Amavasya Tithi is ruled by Rahu. This planet is diabolically opposed to both the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, and is forever trying to gobble them up. Since the Tithi is based on the motion of the Moon relative to the Sun, the luminaries are of tremendous importance here. The Moon indicates the mind, social interaction, the image, prosperity, overall well-being and the flow of money. When Rahu lords the Amavasya Tithi, the Moon becomes very severely and doubly afflicted. Firstly, the major source of lunar strength is its position relative to the Sun. The closer the Moon gets to the Sun, the weaker it gets. On the Amavasya Tithi, the Sun and the Moon are practically conjunct and the Moon is at the weakest junction of the Dark Fortnight. Secondly, Rahu, the arch-enemy of the Moon rules this lunar date. All these factors are immensely adverse for the Moon in the chart.

The vulnerabilities of the Moon in the Rashi Chart will not be elaborated as they have been discussed earlier. Suffice it to say that the Amavasya Tithi Dosha and the fact that the Moon is also the Lagna Lord in Rashi Sandhi is indicative of mental torment and success eluding the native. This Yoga affects the prosperity and well-being and things do not fructify despite the best efforts.

The Amavasya Tithi is stated to rule hell and thus hellish suffering is associated with birth on this date. These things are certainly not meant to foster despondency but to facilitate recognition and acceptance of the destined features of life, so that they may be remedied. One the remedies for the Amavasya Tithi Dosha start working then gains are made from foreign lands, especially relevant in your case (!) and also from underground activity like mining in certain other cases. Notably, both foreign lands and mining are the natural significations of Rahu, the planet afflicting the luminaries due to the lordship of the Amavasya Tithi.

It is unambiguously stated that this is the most important and primary Remedial Measure that you have to perform so that the chart/ life may be released from the very malefic clutches of this Duryoga/ bad combination in the chart.

The remedy is as follows: Find out from the local priest when Amavasya Tithi is falling in a given month; the remedy is to be performed at that time. Have two small idols of the Sun and Moon made: they can be images inscribed on discs, like small coins or just any idols of the Sun and Moon that can be obtained with ease and without undue expenditure. The Sun and the Moon have to be worshiped with the Mantra 'Savita' and 'Aapyayasva' respectively. Just chanting these two single words can be enough. The native must face in the South-Western direction ruled by Rahu while chanting the Mantras.

If the idols cannot be had then the native can just pray to the luminaries in the South-Western direction and pray for their grace freed from Rahu. In Ganga Jal/ water from the Holy Ganges can be obtained, then a pot containing it must be installed at the place of the worship and after the prayers, the water must be poured over one's own head, as well as that of the parents (the Sun and the Moon).

Another simpler Upaya/ remedy is to donate a black cow (NOT a buffalo) on the Amavasya Tithi with the thought that one is giving away all the tainting of Rahu. There are certain other things but you cannot do that in ...Do what you can out of this procedure given above on every Amavasya Tithi till you feel discernible relief, which you most certainly will. The cow has to be donated only once. It is preferable if the cow is not fully grown and of milk-yielding stage.

With this remedy, the chart will be freed to a great extent to begin to legitimately expect returns commensurate with the effort put in. All your financial and business concerns linked with prosperity have their root in the Amavasya Tithi Dosha and the magnitude of this Flaw in the Quality of Time is the reason why the Sage suggested that it be remedied at birth.

The astrologers who may have suggested that wealth and finances pose no problem have failed to notice the Amavasya Tithi Dosha in the chart.

The next thing to do is to work with the remedial aspects of the ongoing Saturn Mahadasha in the Vimshottari Dasha scheme. I wish to immediately refer you to the earlier document that I had drafted for you. Please revisit the parts about the Shani Mahadasha and the Charakaraka replacement. These are important to understand the manner in which your life will change in this Mahadasha. Please refer to the Dasha results as laid down in that Analysis. The main points will be reiterated and summarized herein as well for the sake of your understanding and continuity of interpretation.

Saturn is a debilitated malefic in a Kendra from Lagna and it will give Rajayoga due to this placement. There is also cancellation of debility. Thus, as far, as material issues go, Shani Dasha will give good results after the remedies for the Amavasya Tithi Dosha are done. The latter are like opening to prison gates, so that the person may go out of the captivity of his Karma and then strive (Saturn) and reap the benefits of his efforts. Still, Neecha Grahas are troublesome in their natural significations and matters that they lord temporally in the chart. Therefore, subordinates (natural signification), sexual partners, partners in business (7th Lord), chronic illness (8th lord) are all troublesome areas. The debility of Saturn has and will impact these areas adversely. Therefore, we have to pause and take notice of this problem and address this as well.

The intense focus that Saturn places on the 10th House due to failure and delay will be the driving force in achieving mastery over the work domain and this will give prosperity. But debilitated and Vargottama Saturn afflicts many other crucial parts of the chart. The fact that Saturn occupies its sign of debility Aries in the Navamsha and the Dashamsha Chakras renders it very weak. Its weakness is magnified several times over due to the repeated occupation of Aries/ Mesha in the Varga/ the divisional charts. Saturn is also in Rashi Sandhi in Aries/ Mesha at 0 degrees, in fact it is in a malefic junctional region called Gandanta between a Water sign and a Fire sign, the two elements being opposed to each other rendering the planet even weaker.

Apart from work and overall life at the mental level at a level of receiving and reacting to social stimuli, due to the lordship of the Vimshottari Dasha sequence, Saturn rules some other specific factors in the chart. For example, Saturn is also sitting atop the Darapada/ A7 in the 10th House. The Darapada has to do with our partnerships at a manifest level. It is the precipitate of the 7th House of marriage, sex, partnerships and desire. It is a crucial reference point for relationships. The Darapada is conjoined the Mrityupada/A8. This latter is the manifest, risen facet of the 8th House of sudden events, transformation, suffering and inheritance issues. Some of these attributes and qualities would have been interlaced with the relationships. The Roga Pada/ A6 is also conjoined the A7. This makes the situation loaded. The Karma is such that relationships don?t end easily and enmity and bitterness comes in, this being a function of the A6. To add to it all, Neecha Shani is conjoined this combination and the Shani Mahadasha has begun. In the light of all this, remedial measures have to be done to appease Shani.

The attention drawn to the Charakaraka replacement that is occurring helps the scenario of relationships because Venus will take over as the Char Darakaraka. The women who will come into life now will be prettier, gentler and generally relationships will be more versatile. The inflexibility and rigidity that may have characterized women thus far will be a thing of the past quite soon. You can look forward to positive changes on this front.

Venus also has Digbala/ directional strength from the Arudha Lagna and the South-Eastern direction will be good for material success. The Charakaraka replacement may be announced by the arrival of a woman from the South-East.

To prevent relatives and competitors from becoming a real problem also Saturn has to be appeased.

The thing to do to alleviate the debilitation of Saturn throughout its Vimshottari Dasha and to aid the best results due to the Charakaraka replacement, we need to lift the sign placement of Saturn. This is done best through the device of the Jyotirlinga Mantra. There are 12 Jyotirlinga or forms of Lord Shiva that are full of all His attributes and contain the divine light to obliterate Karmic darkness, to burn evil Karma seen through poor planetary placements and debility etc of Grahas, to shine forth in external life and to inculcate optimism in a meaningful way in life. The 12 Jyotirlinga (Dwadash Jyotirlinga) are mapped directly on to the 12 Rashis/ signs of the zodiac.

When we seek to work with the debilitation of a crucial planet, like Saturn in your chart, the Jyotirlinga Mantra is very useful. The correct mantra can lift the Graha out of its debilitation and rid the native of some of the more stressful aspects of a planet?s debilitation. We need to lift the planet out of its debility. Saturn is exalted in the sign opposite its sign of debility, namely, Tula/ Libra. We need to work with the Jyotirlinga Mantra for Tula so that Saturn can be lifted out of its debility.

The Mantra is:

"Om Namah Shivaaya Namo Mahaakaaleshaaya"

As Saturn is in the 10th House, you should do 10 Malas (10* 108) everyday starting on Saturday. If you find this onerous in the beginning, start with 1 Mala (108 repetitions). Mahakala is the Shiva form corresponding to the zodiacal sign Libra.

This will be the most important remedy to safeguard you during the Saturn Mahadasha that shall continue till 18.1.2025. Not only to safeguard but also to help bring out the Rajayoga potential of the Saturn Mahadasha.

The Lagna and the Lagna Lord are responsible for the health and intelligence of the native. The placement of the Lagna Lord/ Paka Lagna is very important in this regard. As communicated to you earlier, the Lagna Lord Moon, responsible for the health, is very weak in Rashi Sandhi. The Moon is in its exaltation Rashi and gets the strength to receive remedial measures. You must wear a pearl set in silver on Monday after the Moon comes out in the sky. If you can get hold of Ganga Jal, then first wash the ring with the gemstone set in it with raw cow's milk and then with the holy water. Offer some incense and white flowers and then wear the ring.

The weight of the stone is to be 2, 4, 6 or 9 Rattis (not 7/8 Rattis). As the Moon is the Lagna Lord, the gemstone should be worn in the ring finger. The ring finger is symbolic of the Dharma Trikona: the 1st, 5th and the 9th Houses and as the Moon lords the Lagna, the ring should be worn in the 3rd finger.

With these remedies, I am quite optimistic that your life will begin to turn right around it the various troubled areas discussed thus far.

However, to let you have a complete picture, I am going to advise you of specific deities that can be approached for specific areas of life. The first is the Ishta Devata. This deity is responsible for taking the native towards emancipation. This deity is seen from the 12th House from the Atmakaraka planet in the Navamsha Chart. The Navamsha Chart pertains to Dharma. The Atmakaraka planet signifies the soul of the native and the 12th therefrom shows the release of the soul.

The Atmakaraka is placed in Virgo/ Kanya Navamsha and the 12th therefrom is Leo/ Simha which is vacant but aspected by the lord of Leo, the Sun by Rashi Drishti. This shows that the Ishta Devata is Lord Shiva as the Sun is the Graha representative of Lord Shiva. For matters of the soul, you can pray to Lord Shiva.

The next deity and perhaps more pertinent for you at this stage is the Palan Karta. This planet is seen from the 6th House from the Amatyakaraka Graha in the Navamsha Chart. The Amatyakaraka is the planet responsible for the career and so the Palan Karta shows our sustenance and livelihood in this world. The Amatyakaraka planet is Venus and the 12th therefrom is occupied by Mars. Mars shows the Palan Karta. Skanda/ Kartikeya or Lord Hanuman is the Palan Karta in this incarnation. This deity can be approached for relief in financial matters.

The final deity is the Dharma Devata. This planet is seen from the 9th House from the Amatyakaraka in the Navamsha chart and shows us the path that we have to follow in this incarnation.

The 9th House from Venus, the Amatyakaraka, is occupied by the Moon. The Moon is exalted in the Rashi chart, showing Gouri/ Parvati as the specific form of the Goddess which shall guide you to your true and righteous path in this incarnation.

Let us now see some of the specific features as they obtain in this Hindu year. The Tithi Pravesha Chakra this year is cast for the following data... The Hindu birthday, as it were, varies a little from the Western birthday according to the Gregorian Calendar but the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is astrologically and astronomically very astute. True Copy of the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is annexed herewith and marked as ABC TITHI PRAVESHA CHAKRA.

Some specifics have to be checked in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra. Vrishabh/ Taurus Lagna rises in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for this year. This is a malefic house in the natal Rashi Chart, being the 11th from the radical Lagna Cancer. But this also denotes financial gains. The material positives appear to outweigh the malefic potential of the 11th House. Health has to be bolstered by the remedies detailed above because the Hindu birthday falls on the Vedic (not western) weekday of Saturday which planet is a functional malefic for the Lagna.

The Hora Lord for this year?s Tithi Pravesha Chakra is Jupiter, retrograde in the 6th House as the 8th Lord, forming the auspicious Vipreeta Raja Yoga indicating advance and unexpected gains after adversity, stresses and trials. If you are able to do the remedies, this chart shows the possibility of quite significant material and monetary gains this year. The Hora Lord is in many ways the most important planet for the Tithi Pravesha Chakra and indicates focal areas and crux outcomes for the year.

Ideally, you may want to use the esoteric information contained in this Analysis as some sort of a turning point to understand the trials of this life and as a fulcrum to change it all around for your benefit. The forces also seem amenable to such a venture.

You have apprised me of the investment opportunity relating to the venture involving Digital Camera Photo processing/ printing photographs (Rahu) in kiosks through memory sticks (sophisticated gadgets: Ketu). Therefore, the Nodes have to play the correct supporting role in order for the venture to give results.

Taurus Lagna rises in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra. Venus and the Moon conjoin in the Lagna. This is an extremely positive Yoga for monetary advantage accruing to the native. The fact that Venus is also the 6th Lord and the Moon is the 3rd Lord makes this Vipreeta Raja Yoga. This indicates that the native is in a state of dissatisfaction and from this situation he shall surmount heavy odds to achieve financial success. Venus in the Lagna in its own sign also makes this a Malavya Mahapurusha Yoga making the native acquire luxury items and conservative success, things of beauty and grace, music, vehicles and the like. Both the Moon and Venus
have Digbal / directional strength from the Arudha Lagna in the 10th House. The indications of help or positives accruing from the South East can manifest this year. In addition, due to the similar strength of the Moon, help can also come from the North-West ruled by the Moon.

Both Venus and the Moon are conjoined the Labha Pada/ A11 showing tangible gains. This also goes by the name of the Vahana Yoga. People will see you as opulent and immersed in the enjoyment of Bhoga or sensory/ hedonistic joy. There will be recognition of your individual merit and creative intelligence, as too very good investment. This is seen from the A5/ Mantra Pada conjoined the Lagna and the A11 in the 4th House from the A11. All these indications show financial well being, prosperity and gains from investments.

Rahu is placed in the 11th House promising gains from photography. It also aspects the 11th House from the Arudha Lagna, along with Ketu, with Rashi Drishti confirming gains from photography with the use of gadgets. The aspect of the Sun to the 11th from Arudha Lagna by Rashi Drishti also shows that market leaders or other people at the apex of their respective fields could also contribute to the incoming funds this year. All these are straight pointers to a go-ahead for this investment opportunity showing that the native must avail of it.

Two malefics in the 2nd and the 8th Houses from the Arudha Lagna show poverty. This can be interpreted to mean that the native starts the year on a dim financial note. It is a good thing that the Moon does not aspect the Nodes for that would have let this dissatisfaction linger throughout the year. This is not so, indicating again that the positive combinations in the chart will have the native come out of this state and achieve relative financial heights.

Unlike the financial scenario that forms the focus this year, the area of relationships does not emerge as quite so conspicuous or promising. The broad tendencies pertaining to relationships are seen from the Darapada/ A7 in the Rashi Chakra. This is in the 11th House from the Uday Lagna showing that investment in this project could introduce you to an enigmatic person. Care is needed here because the Arudha Lagna is in the 12th House from the A7 showing a mismatch or inherent incompatibility. The lords of the Arudha Lagna and the A7 are also quite opposed to each other, being Rahu and Jupiter respectively. However, it will not be easy to maintain one?s sense of discrimination as the 7th Lord Venus is exalted in the 12th House, showing that the person will be very pretty, sensuous, artistic, elegant and difficult to understand and gauge. Even in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra Navamsha, the chart pertaining to relationships, the lord of the 7th House is in the 12th House from the Lagna and in the 8th from the Arudha Lagna. You are best advised not to get into a serious relationship this year.

Focus on the remedies designed to improve the radical Karma in this direction and wait for the correct time. This year does not furnish the requisite correct time for this sort of a thing. There should be no confusion in this regard. All arrivals should be welcomed but to plunge headlong into anything romantic is not advised this year.

It is the self and self-confidence that will undertake endeavour with initiative and drive as the Lagna Lord Venus (Self/ Personality) is conjoined the Moon, the 3rd Lord of initiative and courage, in the Lagna itself.

The 6th House from the Arudha Lagna in any Rashi Chakra shows the situation relating to the competition and competitors. Malefics are considered well-placed here. Mars, the 7th Lord of the Tithi Pravesha Chakra, indicating partnerships and relationships is debilitated in the 3rd House from the Lagna, which is also the 6th House from the Arudha Lagna. While this is another clue that very serious romantic relationships are best avoided this year, the very same placement also ensures a heady competitive energy and the willingness to surmount the challenged thrown up by those who oppose and contend with you in life.

Saturn causes the Neechabhanga Rajayoga of Mars and the weakness of the latter planet is quelled to a large extent. You must guard against the instinctive lack of initiative and grasping drive caused by the Sadhu Yoga in the natal chart and utilize the combinations in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra to attempt to attain what appears plausible this year.

The combination of the three planets in the 3rd House from the Lagna and the 6th House from the Arudha Lagna is a Rajayoga that shall fructify with travel, communication, courage, initiative and coming on top over competitors and enemies. Let us the study the Tithi Pravesha Chakra Dashamsha/ D-10 chart to look at the specific tendencies prevailing in the environment for work and achievements this year.

Taurus Lagna rises in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra D-10 chart with the lord exalted in the 11th House of gains showing that the expectations and desires in work will be completely fulfilled, even beyond expectations. However, the Badhak for the chart is placed in the 4th House showing that you need to be painstakingly careful about the specific implementation of the project strategies and merely delegating this aspect will not do. As Ketu is in Gemini in the 2nd House it shows that the investment project involving memory cards (Ketu) and printing (Gemini) really motivates and attracts you this year.

The 6th House relates to service and has the Moon placed in Libra. This shows that even though this is an investment proposal, the question of access of the public (Moon: masses) to the kiosks in the market place (Libra in the 6th House) must be carefully addressed as this will be important for the success of the project. You must have all the information pertaining to this aspect.

You may not feel very comfortable with the actual work till about August 1 because the Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Rahu shall be on in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra. Though Rahu is well-placed in the Rashi Chakra, it is debilitated as the 10th Lord in the 8th House of the D-10 Chart. From August 1 to October 13 it will be a very satisfactory period in the business subject to the Sade-Sati. Thereafter, till November 4, market leaders and people in positions of authority can come up with newer ideas, all of which would be favourable.

Till December 28, you will need to focus on the functional aspects of the work you are doing and this attitude will reap you a rich harvest and satisfaction in work as the Moon forms Shashi-Mangala Yoga in the 6-12 axis with Mars, showing satisfaction arriving from foreign lands.

The exaltation of Mercury shows a lot of apt creative working intelligence and success in ventures resulting therefrom.

There is a very strong Rajayoga in the 5-11 axis in the D-10 chart showing success from enterprise.

As discussed with you earlier, this question is also going to be analysed through a Horary/ Prashna Chart cast for the purpose. The chart was cast for the time when the query was put to your astrologer and when he received it in India. The data for the chart is as follows: ...; New Delhi, India.

True Copy of the Prashna/ Horary Chart is annexed herewith and marked as ABC INVESTMENT QUERY.

Right at the outset it becomes apparent that the Prashna Chakra is not as impressive and favorable as the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for the investment opportunity. This is always a pointer to the fact that the Karma in this incarnation has been of such a nature so as to alter the natal indications. At the cost of repetition, it is once again stated that Remedial Measures attain the utmost importance in this nativity due to the peculiar and destined vulnerabilities as shown by the Amavasya Tithi Dosha and the placement of crux Grahas in debility, Rashi Sandhi, Gandanta and the nature of the Prashna Chakra. Once the Karmic fallibilities are addressed, many good things can be attained.

In the Prashna Chakra cast for the purpose of looking at the potential of the investment opportunity, Vrishchik/ Scorpio Lagna rises. Very interestingly, it is the 5th House as reckoned from your natal Karka/ Cancer Lagna. The 5th House, along with the 8th House is the Karaka Bhava/ significator house for investment. Thus, the Prashna Chakra clearly deals with the question of enterprise and investment.

The Lagna Lord of the chart showing the Querent is Mars (along with Ketu). Mars is debilitated in the 9th House showing that the native is not confident as the luck factor/ Bhagya (9th House) has not been favouring him and this has sapped vigour and confidence. However, Saturn causes the cancellation of the debility of Mars, showing that remedying Karma (Saturn) holds the key to greater self-belief, energy and vigour.

The Arudha Lagna in the Prashna Chakra is in the 5th House showing that the end result of the investment (10th from 8th) is the reason for putting forth the query. The 9th Lord Moon is placed in the 5th House from Lagna which is also the Arudha Lagna. Rahu is placed along with the Moon showing that the shocks of the past make the psychological state suspect and riddled with doubt, the emotional cognizance fearing the worst. The Rashi Chakra in a Prashna Chakra evaluation is primarily indicative of the present of the consulter.

The Karya Bhava of the Prashna Chakra is the 5th and also the 8th House. The Karyesh/ significator of investment is Jupiter, which is retrograde in the 12th House from the Lagna and the 8th House from the Arudha Lagna. This does not show a happy situation for the native ?at the time? the query was posed. This has to be distinguished from ?what will be the end result of the query? as the latter shall be seen from the Drekkana/ D-3 chart of the Prashna Chakra. As the 10th Lord of the Prashna Chakra (Rashi Chakra) is the Sun and it is placed in the 8th House, it shows that despite the surrounding factors, you are willing to go ahead and involve yourself with the investment.

As the 9th Lord of Bhagya is in the Nodal axis with Rahu and Ketu, it points at remedial measures shown by the Karmic control planets: Rahu and Ketu to better the luck in this venture. As Saturn, the planet of Karma itself is the Mahadasha planet in the natal chart in the Vimshottari Dasha scheme, the remedial measures and their requirement are seen even more clearly.

The Navamsha Chart/ D-9 of the Prashna Chakra is seen for the past. In this chart, Kanya/ Virgo Lagna rises and the Yogakaraka Venus is placed in the 5th House. This shows that the projects in the past have been grandiose. The lord of the 5th House is Saturn and it is badly afflicted by the 12th Lord Sun and the 3rd and the 8th Lord Mars showing very trying experiences in these matters in the past. However, as all the three planets lord a Dusthana and the conjunction occurs in yet another Dusthana, the 3rd House, it forms Vipreeta Raja Yoga. This would have allowed the native to come away with something and to stay afloat.

The Karyesh Guru/ Jupiter is placed in the 6th House in the nodal axis. The 6th House is Maraka/ Killer for the 5th and indicates service rather than entrepreneurial attainment. The Nodes once again indicate that the want of success has not been due to any personal deficiency but due to accumulated Karma. This is confirmed by the fact that the Lagna Lord of the Navamsha Chakra is placed in the 11th House, the 11th being the Bhava of optimism and fulfillment of hopes, desires and ambitions.

Let us study the future propensities through the Tithi Pravesha Chakra Drekkana/ D-3 chart. Here, the chart used is from a Jyotish tradition of Orissa, India. The Lagna rising is Cancer/ Karka and the Lagna Lord Moon, showing the self is placed in the 9th House, the Bhava of luck and fortune. This is important and quite positive as it shows blessings destined for the native through luck and grace, the latter attributes being seen from the 9th House. Mars is a Yogakaraka for Cancer Lagna, owning both a trine and a quadrant, becoming capable of conferring Rajayoga on its own. Here, Mars is very well placed in the 5th House of investment which it itself lords. It is conjoined the 7th and 8th Lord Saturn which gives a harsh image to the business image as someone who drives a hard bargain.

Jupiter the Karaka is well placed in Kumbha/ Aquarius where it can give results akin to exaltation in the 8th House of speculation. This is also a Vipreeta Raja Yoga as Jupiter is the 6th Lord placed in the 8th House.

Regarding the health situation, the Nakshatra Pravesh Chakra furnishes a better picture. This is cast for the time when at the time of the solar return, the Moon enters the Nakshatra where it was placed at birth. Nakshatra Pravesh Chakra is based on the Vayu Tattwa/ the air element and better shows the health situation. True Copy of the Nakshatra Pravesh Chakra is annexed herewith and marked as ABC NAKSHATRA PRAVESH CHAKRA.

There is need for caution in this area as the Nakshatra Pravesh Chakra shows considerable affliction. The Lagna is afflicted by the 3rd Lord Sun in Gemini/ Mithun Lagna. Mithun is the 12th House from the natal Karka Lagna. This is a Dusthana and shows an unfavourable year with respect to the health. Rahu and Ketu afflict the Sun, the Naisargika Karaka for the body by Rashi Drishti from the 10th and the 4th Houses respectively. The Lagna Lord of the Nakshatra Pravesh Chakra is badly afflicted by debilitated Mars and Saturn. The symptomatic predictive diagnosis will depend also upon the condition of Venus, the Karaka for blood sugar. Venus is in the 12th House, placed with the 2nd Lord, the Maraka Moon. The saving grace is that Venus is in Taurus, its own sign. Guard against eye-sight being impacted by the health condition as the 10th Lord is placed in the 8th House from itself and both the Sun and the Moon are somewhat afflicted.

However, this is unlikely to be dangerous or severely problematic as Venus is exalted in the Navamsha Chart in the Nakshatra Pravesh Chakra. The exaltation of the Moon in the 12th House also augurs well for the treatment working. There may be expenditure and visits to the doctor/ the hospital shown by the 12th House but you will respond to the treatment. Till 7th July, you must take the fullest care as the Mars compressed Vimshottari Dasha is on and Mars is a debilitated, afflicted natural and functional malefic in the 2nd House.

This chart makes the need for the pearl very crucial.

Just looking at the foreign takeover possibilities over the next 3-5 years, though the time frame is quite broad based, and the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for a more specific year should be looked at, generally some things can be stated. In view of all that has been stated about Saturn and the quite focused manner in which remedial measures have been prescribed, all these ventures are to be looked at positively.

Career and business are likely to look up. As you get out of the Sade-Sati and into the Rajayoga of Saturn, having done what is required to quell the debility and the Gandanta status of this Graha, you would be well on the way to expansion. Also, the pressing triple Saturn caused by a bereft-of-remedies and afflicted planet in the Vimshottari Dasha Mahadasha as well as the Antardasha, plus the ending Sade-Sati will abate. Mercury Antardasha in the 12th House will also aid foreign ventures.

Precisely how far the Grahas respond in fact to remedial measures is always to be seen from life events. Most often we find that these focused and highly task specific measures work very well and a lot of benefit and positive change is felt in the area that are being addressed. It is for this reason that the ancient classics are so particular in laying down Doshas and astrological situations that are in need of remedial measures.

I trust you have a blueprint of what is to come this year, including in isolated and specific areas. Perform the remedial measures with faith and with awareness of precisely what they are being done for. I have very little doubt that you will be aided in your life journey with these inputs.

Best Wishes,
Anurag Sharma.

Charts Compatibility Analysis in Vedic Astrology- Studying Two People and Their Lives Together

The following is a Detailed Charts Compatibility Analysis drafted for a client. Birth data, names, places and any references to factual details are being omitted for reasons.

What does a paper of this sort do? It comes up with answers as to whether two persons are suitable for one another as partners, whether having become partners they ought to continue being partners and whether anything in the interim which makes them think otherwise is probably only a transient issue, whether two persons are going to lead to a better life together than separately or with other people..and so on and so forth. Compatibility Analysis work varies a lot depending on the consulters. A lot of classical references and interpretations are route-maps travelled in order to arrive at advisory conclusions and in this type of work and all other, they are there also for the reading pleasure of advanced Jyotiṣa enthusiasts and consulters. This is knowledge and a vast number of consulters are also dedicated Vedic astrology enthusiasts-this elaborate journey in each consulting paper is also undertaken for their benefit. But the ultimate objective is always to give reponses that directly and unambiguously address the realities, needs and requirements of the person approaching me for solutions.

Note-Compatibility related work is often misunderstood in Vedic astrology/ Jyotiṣa and this is due to the misinformation prevalent on the subject. The foremost of this relates to Guṇa-Milān or the technique of matchmaking. For each set of two horoscopes that are being matched, the practice appears to be simply to mechanically add up the scores that come from the Aṣṭakūṭa Milān or the eight-fold matching. This is absolutely erroenous. Marriage and relationships were always complex and are all the more so in the current climes. Esoteric techniques tell us the relevance of the eight-fod matching where there is no complusion to add up the Bindus in the various criteria as if they arose from the same astrological matrix. They are disparate figures and are not meant to be added up. Apart from this the Ārūḍha Padas such as the Upapada/ UL, the Dārāpada/ A7, the Ārūḍha Lagna (AL) and such determinants have to be studied. Kuja/ Māṅgalika Doṣa is to be taken into account.

The idea is to arrive at an elaborate and healthy set of indices between two individuals which can study and advise on the behavioural, social, emotional, physical, financial, familial and Kārmic aspects of the compatibility or the lack of it, among other factors. Times change and so the dynamic interplay between the horoscopes has to be studied from the various Daśā systems. Divisional charts/ Varga Chakra are crucial and none more so that the Nāvāmśa Cakra which is in the fact the chart which relates to and deals with the area of marriage and sexuality.


Dear XYZ,

Just looking at your chart and that of your wife, PQR, very many features spring into focus about some of the misconceptions in Jyotish, apart from the sheer complexity of the situation at hand. The greatest damage has been caused by the erroneous opinion rendered to you about the Manglik Dosha (The Blemish of Mars in Marital Matters) in the chart of your wife. In certain Jyotish circles the opinion is current that Mangal (Mars) in Karka Rashi (Cancer) does not cause Manglik Dosha. I suppose you have already found that this does not hold in actual practice! Moreover, the Dosha occurs in the 7th House (H) of PQR?s chart and this Bhava pertains specifically to marriage as it deals with our intimate relationships, partnerships: whether sexual or otherwise, marriage itself, sexual intercourse and our personal interaction with others at an individual level. Thus, the strength of this Bhava is absolutely central in the area of partnership whether in the realm of business or marriage. Affliction of this house leads to difficulties, the severity of which is contingent on various factors in the Kundalis at hand. While Mangal resides in the Kalatrabhava (house of marriage) in PQR?s chart, the situation does not repeat in your chart and thus there is no Dosha Samya or cancellation of affliction. As a result, Mangal is free to create havoc in marital life.

Mangal is the Naisargik Karaka (natural significator) of rage, violence, power, lust, passion, heat and anger. It triggers impulsive behaviour and insatiable desires and appetites. Its names are Kruradik, the cruel one and Vakra, the Graha that adopts twisted and unconventional means to get what it wants. The 7th H is so delicate that in Jyotish it is considered the best situation if there are no Grahas at all here, whether benefic or malefic. The militant and aggressive nature of this Graha violates the delicate nature of the marital bond and hatred, violence and trigger-happy mentalities begin to invade the domestic harmony. In other words, there is no place for the valiant and furious Commander-in-Chief of the Cosmic Cabinet in the Yuvati Bhava or the house pertaining to marriage. To add to the factors that I have enumerated here, Mangal is Neecha or debilitated in the 7th House of PQR?s chart, making her marriage suffer due to a serious affliction of all attributes pertaining to Mars. It is not natural for police, a natural signification of Mars (!), along with the armed forces and other uniformed services, to invade a Hindu-Indian home, even though it may be in the STU (name of country of residence omitted for reasons). All matters pertaining to a Neecha Graha suffer in their significations and the inherent fury of Kuja will rage unabated in a scenario where Manglik Dosha is not annulled in the chart of the spouse and this Mangal is in the sign of its debility as well.

Another interesting feature of the two charts exposes the real worth of the system of Gunamilan or Ashtakoota Milan, which has traditionally and mistakenly been relied upon as the sole means of matching charts. Traditional matching reveals that there is excellent compatibility in the two charts. In this so-called Matchmaking, a total of 36 points is possible. Out of this an outstanding score of 28.5 points has been achieved. It is not the contention that this area of matchmaking is without value; rather it must be viewed in the light that it merits. The various components that comprise the eight divisions of this analysis elaborate on various aspects of the relationship but the focal point is that all of these are based on the natal Moon?s location in the two charts. In other words, it is a Nakshatra based compatibility and can mainly indicate psychological parameters since Chandra is the Naisargik Karaka of emotional mapping and psychological characteristics. While Moon is a focal point in Jyotish and can reveal many things as an alternate Lagna, especially since this Graha is the representative of the Mother Goddess and indicates manifest reality, it cannot be the sole or even the dominant criterion for judgment of results. For example, the Bhrakoot in Gunamilan shows the egoic and family understandings between the spouses and their respective families. The Kundalis score a maximum of 7 out of 7 points in this area showing that the match was psychologically adaptable with the views of the two families and the ego at the level of the perceptive mind was unlikely to become a hindrance. The most important Nadi compatibility shows a maximum score again, 8 out of 8, showing that there is not much chance of the progeny being genetically deformed or otherwise unhealthy. Though this is sometimes taken to affirm the absence of any physical aversion between the spouses, the Yoni more directly pertains to sexual attraction and physical compatibility. Here, the score is only 50% with 2 points scored out of 4 showing some vulnerability in this direction, which needs further investigation in the charts. The other criterion is Graha Maitri, which shows the mental attitudes directly and here the lords of the Chandra Rashi are Shani (Saturn) and Guru (Jupiter) respectively. These Grahas are neutral to each other in the scheme of Natural Friendship and show adequate compatibility, if different in the view they take of the world at a level of emotional perception. Even the other factors show adequate compatibility scores showing that out of educational and private understanding of the world, no majorly discordant notes are likely to crop up.

However, it is beyond doubt that there are serious pressures in the marriage and this ought to waken us to the real value of Ashtakoota Milan. It cannot and ought not be taken as the final or dominant theme while judging charts and this fact is being universally recognized in elevated Jyotish circles. Loose and irresponsible attitudes of astrologers regarding the Manglik Dosha or affliction of areas significant to marriage by other malefic Grahas has contributed to discredit the genius of the Vedic seers. Anyhow, the mistake of an astrologer has hardly anything to do with the validity of eternally true Jyotish dicta. Therefore, it must be recognized that PQR?s chart has a serious Manglik Dosha in the 7th H directly affecting the marriage with sporadic violence, argumentation and intolerable atmosphere in the marital home. Mangal is your Atmakaraka (AK), the Graha farthest advanced by degrees in any chart, and it is teaching your soul lessons pertaining to violence and letting impulsive rage get the better of you. This is the avenue your Atman has chosen to advance the incarnate personality on the path to evolution and advancement. The effort on your part has to be to eschew anger, no matter how serious the provocation and this is said with the full realization that such a thing is easier said than done. Furthermore, when a natural malefic is the AK, it shows the propensity for a high degree of spiritual development. These trials are being visited upon you to understand some deeper significance of yourself and the underlying metaphysics that governs the world.

Kalsarpa Yoga is formed when all Grahas are between Rahu and Ketu. Kalamrita Yoga is formed when all Grahas are between Ketu and Rahu. Since the nodes are always retrograde or Vakri, in your chart, all Grahas are between Ketu and Rahu and thus there is no Kalsarpa Yoga but there is Kalamrita Yoga. The Rahu-Ketu axis is known as the Karmic axis and shows subtle Karma that must be experienced; the subtlety of the situation can be gleaned from the fact that Rahu and Ketu have no material existence so their lessons are also devoid of immediate rationality and always partake of a strong element of destiny and inevitability. When all Grahas are in the grasp of the Cosmic Dragon, of which Rahu is the head and Ketu is the tail, you can appreciate the strong fate that drives all the Graha energies in the chart. The natural age of the maturity and abatement of these Yogas is 43 years and till that age, Prarabdha or the active element of fate guides all events in life. The positive feature is that since in Kalamrita Yoga, fiery and unpredictable Ketu forms the apex, as it were, in accord with the nature of Ketu, the reason behind the suffering is the spiritual growth of the native. This is not so in Kalsarpa Yoga where material concerns obliterate the secret cause behind the destined torment and thus this is a preferable Yoga if a choice exists between the two. Further, the nodes are Neecha being in their signs of debility. This happens in the 4-10 axis and is a Rajayoga at a material level, including the area of career, achievement, societal status, actions in society and reputation seen by the 10th H, the Karma Bhava, but debilitated Ketu again shows that there is a need for you to curb the violence and sudden eruptions of anger. This is crucial, since at a pragmatic level, opinions matter and Ketu in Mithun Rashi (Gemini) rules the opinions of those around you to a great degree. This is so since Mithun is your Arudha Lagna (AL), the external or Mayik personality showing the way you are perceived by others around you, as distinct from the Lagna (Ascendant), which is Kanya (Virgo). So while actually you are a worrying person, sensitive to your own faults and those of others, careful about your health and interested in knowledge in a reserved way for it own sake, you are perceived as an outgoing and vivacious intellectual who is highly instinctive in decision making and ideas, if also enigmatic and difficult to understand. Also, since AL is in the 10th H from lagna, the external personality at the work place and in interaction rules the way you are perceived. It is your own actions that make your image and this is not the case in all charts. Thus with awareness and understanding, you can modify your perceived image to a degree.

Apart from your specific query about Kalsarpa Yoga, the Rahu-Ketu axis is also crucial in that Rahu is debilitated in the Upapada Lagna (UL). Like the AL, this is the Mayik counterpart of the factors pertaining to spouse. Thus, it shows the external attributes of the wife in your case and the way she is perceived by you and others. Neecha Rahu in the UL shows significant affliction to the area of marriage and this affects your peace of mind directly, as you have also indicated in your communication, since this is the 4th H of happiness and emotions. There is great turmoil here shown by the debilitated Demon Rahu and while it has given Rajayoga in relation to inanimate possessions like residence and immovable property, it must give illusion (a natural signification of Rahu) to the personality in the matters pertaining to wife, indicated by UL. It is clear that the destined suffering pertains to the AL and UL since the Kalamrita Yoga covers AL in the 10th H and UL in the 4th H; so while we must view the opinion ignoring the Manglik Dosha in PQR?s chart as being irresponsible, this has only come about due to the inevitability of the Karma shown by the Karmic nodes in the relevant area. It would have adopted any means to visit you. Such strong fate cannot be averted. So some distant comfort can be derived from the fact that all this is not the result of some unfortunate mistake but is destiny in full flow. While in some cases the AL and UL being in mutual Kendras (Quadrants) might have been interpreted as favorable, here due to the afflictions already studied and some yet to be delved into, it shows opposition. Grahas or Padas in the 7th or 12th from UL show the opposition to the alliance and here driven by the Karmic nodes, your wife has been led to file for divorce while you threatened her with precisely this consequence at a prior time. This is a clear-cut manifestation of opposition to each other and reflects the somewhat undesirable Karma that actuates the marriage and has always formed a permanent theme in the relationship right from the beginning. It was studied whether Rahu in your UL received any saving grace, as it were, from a benefic or Shubh Graha to save the day. Rahu is aspected by the Rashi Drishti (Sign Aspect) by Budh (Mercury) but Budh is Himself Neecha in the Kalatrabhava.

This position of Budh is not entirely welcome in the 7th H. Budh along with Shani is a neuter or sexless planet and while no Graha is really desired in the Kalatrabhava, the location of these two is particularly conspicuous. Budh does not aid sexual intercourse or physical attraction especially if other factors are detrimental or challenging. It is a youthful and superficial Graha that likes amoral behaviour and a playful attitude to sexuality, which is perceived as laxity of morals by people at large. Thus, strict watch is to be maintained over one?s conduct; any unwarranted indulgence with women of easy virtue or things of that nature will only aggravate the situation further since it is caused by Budh in the first place. The most crucial thing is to realize that even if some of the cutting remarks of the spouse pertain to the incompatibility and frustration precipitated by Budh, the resultant anger must be channeled with the thought that the situation is after all destined and evoked by Graha energies rather than some sort of a fault. There is yet another indication that Karma has chosen a particularly carefully crafted Graha scheme to work out some Karma pertaining to marriage. PQR?s chart has Mangal in the 7th H in debility while you have Budh in the 7th H in debility. There is only one Graha in the hierarchy of Grahas that Mangal is opposed to in the scheme of Naisargik Graha Maitri and that Graha is Budh. Thus marriage for both partners is assailed in this way as well by affliction of expectation and reality by two bitterly opposed Grahas or what works as an opposition since one of the direst malefics is inimical to the other Graha. In this manner, the first marriage seen by the seventh Bhava oscillates between rage, passion and unbridled desire on the one hand and a sense of frigidity and physical dissatisfaction or intimate incompatibility on the other; this is a pendulum of completely opposite tendencies and must precipitate great pressures and tensions in the relationship.

It was mentioned earlier that it might be more prudent to view the event of this marriage as destined rather than as a mistake that could have been averted with right counseling. This was said with reference to the Karmic focus of Rahu-Ketu. This destined element of marriage, especially as far as you are concerned is reflected in the principles pertaining to selection of spouse as they relate to UL. It is a principle that the Lagna of the spouse should be the UL, the 7th Rashi therefrom, or the signs in Trikonas or trines from UL. In addition, the Paka Upapada Lagna or the sign occupied by the lord of UL can furnish the Lagna of the spouse. In your case, Guru is the lord of UL in Dhanu (Sagittarius) and is placed in Makar (Capricorn). The Lagna of PQR?s chart is Makar suggesting that this marriage has happened due to inevitable Karma. However, for a lasting marriage, a reciprocal arrangement is usually requisite in the chart of the wife. UL in PQR?s chart is in Mesha (Aries) with lord Mars debilitated in the 7th H. Thus the Lagna of husband ought to be Mesha, Karka (Cancer), Simha (Leo) or Dhanu. Your Lagna is Kanya and this is not a linked Rashi. Thus the Karmic bonding essential to cement a lasting marriage is absent here.

The areas pertaining to marriage the first time around are seriously afflicted. In your chart, Guru the lord of the 7th House is Himself Neecha in Makar Rashi. A debilitated Budh placed there weakens t the 7th House and since Budh is the significator of thinking, this brings nervous torment relating to spouse and marriage. The 7th Lord (L) Guru is Neecha in 5th H afflicted by the worst Graha for Kanya Lagna, Mangal. Mars is the highly malefic lord of two Dusthanas, the 3rd and 8th. Since the 3rd H pertains to arms and hands, Mangal made you hit your wife. Though there is Neechabhanga Yoga or cancellation of debility for Budh and Guru both, this will not help in marital matters. Likewise, the exaltation of Mangal renders it very potent to bring violence and fear into the marriage. Mangal affects the Neecha Guru in the 5th House of love, creativity and fascination with the opposite sex and aspects by Graha Drishti, the Kalatrakaraka Shukra (Venus) placed in the potentially most malefic 8th H in combustion with the Dusthana (Evil 3rd, 6th, 8th and 12th Houses) lord Surya, the lord of the 12th H of separation from the first marriage. Surya is exalted but carries seperative tendencies as the Trika lord of the 12th House. The adverse station of Shukra in the 8th H further weakens characteristics of marital matters. The aspect of Mars to Venus in the 8th H of secret sexuality triggers Venus and thus restraint in these areas is a good idea for peace and harmony. The debilitation of Guru takes away a lot of auspiciousness from both 7th H and UL, most important determinants of the first marriage. The 2nd House from any Bhava relates to the fruits of that house and the 2nd H from UL is very crucial in determining the extent of longevity of the marriage. The 2nd H from the UL is Makar with Neecha Guru, Moon and exalted but highly malefic natural and functional Pap Graha Mangal. The 2nd L from UL is Shani (Saturn) well placed in Mitra Rashi (Friendly Sign) Vrishabh (Taurus). This also happens to be the most benefic Trikona from Lagna, the 9th H of fortune and luck. This auspiciousness is the feature that makes you contemplate carrying on with this marriage in spite of numerous challenges. But Shani also happens to be in the 6th H of nuisance, violence, anger, enemies, divorce: being 12th from the 7th, indicating the loss (12th) of the features pertaining to the matters of the 7th H: marital alliance. Thus Shani actually indicates a court decree showing separation from the UL. This is also the 12th H from AL and has the Shatrupada (A6). A6 is the Arudha Pada of the 6th H of enemies and separation and denotes the external and visible acts in this direction. Though Shani in the 12th from AL is excellent for career as is the 12th L Surya in the 6th in a Vipreeta Raja Yoga (VRY) but this is not central to the purpose at hand, which is determination of marital compatibility or otherwise. Just like UL is aspected by Neecha Budh by Rashi Drishti, the 2nd from UL is also aspected by Shani by Rashi Drishti. Thus Neecha Guru, Mangal and Shani afflict the 2nd from UL. For Rashi Drishti, all mutable Rashis aspect each other and all movable and immovable Rashis aspect each other except the one juxtapose. Further, A7, the Darapada, the external realities pertaining to partnerships whether sexual or otherwise, is in the 6th H from AL, and this shows adversity and inimical tendencies proliferating in relation to the external image when partnerships of an intimate or personal nature are brought into focus. This also suggests limited physical felicity between the couple.

In PQR?s chart, the 8th H is called the Mangalya Bhava or the area showing the nature and duration of the marital bond. There is a Guru-Chandala Yoga formed by the conjunction of Guru and Rahu. Guru is the Karaka for husband for women, particularly for Indian women where some tradition is still considered of value. Shani-Rahu combination also afflicts the 8th H of the marital bond. This added to the functional and natural malefic Mangal debilitated in the 7th H once again reflects the shaky nature of this marriage. The dispositor of the 7th L Moon is Guru and He is placed in the 8th H afflicted by two great malefics Rahu and Shani. Shani and Rahu are bitterly opposed to Surya and the latter is the lord of the Simha Rashi that falls in the 8th H. The lord of the 8th is in the 9th H with Neecha Shukra. Shukra is the permanent Karaka of marital bliss and domestic harmony and its debility almost seals the issue. Here too, apart from affecting the 7th H Mangal is the UL lord showing multiple afflictions to the area of marriage. Like in your chart, the UL falls in the 4th H of the chart showing that Neecha effects shall be felt in the domestic home. The 2nd L from UL rules the longevity of this marriage in your wife?s chart and Shukra is the lord of this house placed in combustion with Surya in its sign of debilitation. The second house from the UL is aspected by debilitated Mangal by Rashi Drishti and Budh also aspects it. The UL receives the aspect of Guru Chandala Yoga from Sthira Rashi Simha in the 8th H and also Ketu, another natural malefic. The aspect to 2nd from UL might be that of a natural benefic in Budh?s case but Budh is also the Lord of the 6th H, which rules the loss of the 1st marriage through a court decree. This has also brought in legal intervention as 6th is the house of law and punishment. The aspect of Guru to UL is that of a great natural benefic but it loses a lot of its protective grace due to the lordship of two Dusthanas, the 3rd and the 12th for her Makar Lagna which is aspected by full Graha Drishti by a Neecha and functionally malefic Mangal which makes her speak with unusual bitterness at times. Mangal also aspects Budh, the Karaka for speech, with His 4th Graha Drishti; the 2nd Lord Shani is in the 8th H with Rahu. All this points towards incendiary and bitter utterances. The UL and AL are Dwirdwadasha or in 2-12 positions and are mutually dissipative of each other. PQR?s 7th L Chandra is placed in a Dwiswabhava Rashi showing multiplicity and the Kalatrakaraka Shukra is Neecha in another dual sign. Thus a possibility of more than one marriage or romantic alliance cannot be ruled out. Shani Gochar (Transit) is also important and in your case it will be transiting through the 8th H from UL forming a kind of Kantak, threatening dissolution of what the UL stands for, since the Ashtam Bhava stands for endings and beginnings. In your case, this is also A8, showing the manifest events relating to end of marriage shown by the natal 8th H; A8 is also called Mrityupada but it just shows hidden and sudden events in life rather than necessarily evils in other directions. A2 shows the visible things relating to Kutumba or the immediate family. For PQR, Shani will be in the 7th H in Gochar over Neecha Mangal and this too shows some upheaval in marital life. PQR?s Mangal is also in Maran Karaka Sthana (MKS), which is an adverse station for Grahas. For you Budh is in Maran Karaka Sthana. For Budh and Mangal the 7th, for Guru the 3rd, for Chandra the 8th, for Surya the 12th, for Shukra the 6th, for Shani the Lagna and for Rahu the 9th are MKS placements. Grahas in MKS tend to give poor results for the houses they own as well as their natural significations and their placements especially if other factors point to the same results. The placement of 7th L Chandra in the 3rd H of desires and copulation gives desires that are not directed very well and since Guru is in the 8th H, Shani-Rahu and the malefic features of the 8th H vicariously afflict the 7th L. Mangal is the lord of the A7 and UL both in her chart and placed in the 7th H it gives a nature that is not centered on self-control. The need for interaction on her terms and her intensity is relentless due to the unbending nature of Kuja. UL lord in MKS will give adverse results pertaining to the marriage. The location of A7 in the 9th from AL suggests easy interaction with the opposite sex and this area will not show affliction. This is Srimantah Yoga and shows adequate blessings of Sri Lakshmi. There is a Sarpa Yoga in PQR?s Navamsha chart shown by the presence of three malefics in three different Kendras and is broken by the Moon in Chandra-Mangala Yoga which exists in your 5th House in Rashi chart as well. So blessings at a material level are assured. Sarpa Yoga shows passions that are not controlled and the breaking of the Yoga is due to Chandra and psychology and emotional restraint will be the hope for a containing of the affliction of Sarpa Yoga in Navamsha, which shows subtle realities of life and especially describes marriage. Chandra-Mangal Yoga, the link in your chart of Mars and Venus and Budh in 7th H in Rashi and Chandra-Mangal Yoga in PQR?s Navamsha show impulsive and passionate discharging of emotion and deep-seated feelings whether through anger or in some other manner and thus there is a sort of battleground atmosphere created due to the destined and Karmic disturbances shown by other factors. Thus in mutual appreciation, these afflictions are rendered serious.

In Navamsha, Mars is the 8th L placed in the 7th and the 7th L Shukra is debilitated once again and that too in the 6th H, the house of loss of matters of the 7th H of marriage. The Neecha Vargottama (Same Rashi in Lagna and Navamsha Chakras) Shukra shows debilitation of marital matters since Shukra is Kalatrakaraka. You can see, XYZ, that the area of first marriage is at least equally afflicted in PQR?s case as well. That there are subtle strands of Karma connecting her to you as well since Kumbha (Aquarius) is 9th from her UL in Mithun and Kumbha is your Navamsha lagna. Her UL is in the 6th H from AL in Makar, showing tendencies to separation. Shukra in the 6th, as mentioned before is a MKS placement and adds to the seperative characteristics of both the charts. The lord of the Upapada in PQR?s Navamsha chart is Budh and this is placed in the 8th H from Lagna. The 8th from UL has Ketu and the 2nd from UL has Rahu, both the areas governing the longevity of the first marriage are curtailed by these two malefics. Rahu-Ketu aspect the lord of UL Budh in the 8th H by Rashi Drishti, showing Karmic factors that indicate a splitting. The concept of Argala or planetary and sign intervention is also helpful in understanding influences in the chart and this technique of Parashara can illuminate areas effectively. You will recall, XYZ, that Shani?s placement in your Rashi chart was considered semi-favourable. Grahas in the 3rd from any Graha or Rashi have special Argala on that Graha of Rashi. Thus Shani in the 9th H in the Rashi chart has Argala on the 7th H that cannot be obstructed. Shani is a traditionalist and despite perversion and torment will do anything in its power to preserve the status quo. However, since Shani is a sexless, old and bachelor and miserable Graha, its Argala on the 7th H of first marriage, especially with Neecha Budh there will not aid harmony at a physical level with the first mate. It is upon such careful occult examination that the sacred nature of sexuality, like everything else in existence, comes through and it becomes apparent that many factors like destined and Karmic harmony of the partners with each other, emotional understanding, restraint and mutual help play a huge role in this field. Interestingly, Saturn also has special Argala on the 7th H in PQR?s chart in Navamsha and whether she is aware of it or not, there are desires that would like to have the marriage carry on if at all possible. But this is at a very subtle level in her personality and may not manifest visibly since Navamsha tendencies are subtle in nature. Also, Shani?s conservative Argala is not enough to counter the tremendous affliction caused by other Argalas. For example, exalted Surya has Argala on the 7th H in your chart from the 8th and ego and pride will make things really difficult. Neecha Guru, Uchcha Mangal and Chandra have Argala from the natal 5th H and Guru?s protective grace is eroded by debility while exaltation of malefic Mangal infuses so much rage in your mind pertaining to marriage that violence and serious damage are very likely. Neecha Mangal in PQR?s chart in the 7th makes sure that there is no letting up in this perpetual conflict. It is again a mistake to suppose, just like Mangal in Karka, that Mangal will not damage beyond 28 years of age. This is just the maturity age of Mangal and the worst effects of this bitterly hostile Graha are felt before this age. But that is no ground for saying that Mangal will magically disappear after this landmark. No such illusion ought to be harboured; there is some reduction in Mangal?s malefic nature but in view of the very extensive damage to the area of first marriage, this is unlikely to be of much import. As for Argala, Grahas and Rashis in the 2nd, 4th and 11th from any Graha or Rashi have primary Argala. The 5th and 8th have secondary Argala and the 3rd has special Argala that cannot be obstructed.

In your Navamsha chart, the 7th L Surya is in the 6th H of divorce and separation with the 7th itself afflicted by Shani and Shukra, the latter forming Karakobhavanashaya, namely, that the significator of a particular matter damages the affairs of the significator house if placed there. Simha is an inimical Rashi for both Shani and Shukra since they are enemies of Surya. UL is in Meena (Pisces) in Navamsha and Guru is placed in the 5th H and this is a favourable factor that imparts wisdom-oriented tendencies to somehow carry on and hope for things to get better. Guru also has Argala from the 11th H from the 7th on the afflicted Yuvati Bhava in Navamsha chart, trying to pour Gangajal on troubled wounds. UL is in the 12th H from the AL in Navamsha showing that the visible personality seen by the AL will be forced to reject the spouse. UL has Grahan Yoga with Chandra-Ketu in it showing that the spouse?s mind will not be clear and that delusion laced with impulsive rage will feature prominently in marital conduct. The 2nd L from UL is the lord of Arudha Lagna and is placed in the 8th H of the destruction of the subject matter at hand, namely the longevity of the marriage; to add to the adversity, this is also the 6th H from the AL, showing separation from the precipitate personality. Mangal is in the Rashi of Budh, its archenemy, afflicted by Rahu. Mars-Rahu have Argala on Shani in the 7th and Surya in the 6th tries to obstruct it. Thus pride and dignity try to keep it going but two Grahas overpower Surya and rage and anger and nervous torment coupled with meaninglessness and confusion overpower the marriage in Navamsha.

The Vimshottari Dasha sequence in your chart is Rahu-Shukra-Shani. Rahu is Neecha in the UL and shows a marriage that does not stand on a firm footing. The dispositor of Rahu is also Neecha and thus the foundations are further weakened. Rahu aspects by Graha Drishti, Surya and Shukra in the 8th H of termination of the marital bond. It covers and assails the brilliance of the exalted Surya. Though Shukra is an excellent Graha for Kanya Lagna it is the lord of Bhagya placed in the 8th H of loss of Bhagya with the 12th L. So Shukra Antardasha (AD) has brought this facet to the fore. The Gajkesari Yoga in the 5th H is virtually defunct due to the debility of Guru and while exaltation of the AK Mangal is very good for occult advancement, it is adverse for this marriage. The affliction of Guru is at once the affliction of the UL and the 2nd therefrom. Shani Pratyantardasha (PD) tries to make you somewhat cautious and conservative but as Shani is the 6th L of court decree, it does not deny the prospect of separation. Shani is conjoined A6, the manifest part of courts and legal proceedings. Budh PD from mid-Feb next year will probably speed up events and they will be undeniable. Debilitated Budh suggests that getting out of this dangerous situation is a better idea even if such an idea is inherently more difficult for Indians and Hindus.

In the Narayan Dasha scheme proposed by Maharshi Jaimini, the Dasha since 2003 is Makar. Narayan Dasha is a Rashi Dasha and is one of the most potent tools to time events. Makar is the 2nd House from UL and its affliction has been described earlier. Since Narayan Dashas have begun from the 7th from Lagna, let us ponder over the 7th from Makar. This is Karka in the 8th H from UL and 11th from Lagna. The lord of Karka is placed in the 7th with debilitated 6th L Guru from Dasha Rashi. The 7th L from Dasha Rasi is Shani placed in the 6th from UL conjoined A6. Karka is conjoined A8 and Shani will be transiting Karka over the next two and a half years. Meena AD has begun on 24th August and will go on till 25th April. You know that Meena is the 7th H from Lagna with Neecha Budh. In 2005, Moon the lord of Dasha Rashi (actually 7th from Dasha Rashi Makar) will give results and placed with a Guru who disposits Rahu in debility and is in debility Himself paves the way for a separation.

In PQR?s chart, the Vimshottari Mahadasha of Ketu operates. Ketu is in the 2nd H of Kutumba and 8th from the 7th H of marriage ruling its termination. Ketu is conjoined A6 and aspects the 7th H and Mangal by Rashi Drishti. According to the dictum Kujavad Ketu, Ketu acts like Mars and inflames the 7th H. The dispositor of Ketu is Shani in the 8th H afflicted by Rahu and Guru where Guru is the functionally malefic lord of the 3rd and 12th. Shukra is the Yogakaraka Graha for Makar Lagna but it is debilitated with the 8th L. The Narayan Dasha of Kumbha operates in the chart of your wife. Since, in her case as well, the Narayan Dashas start from the 7th H from Lagna, let us consider the 7th from Dasha Rashi, which is Simha, the afflicted 8th H of the Lagna chart, showing an afflicted Mangalya Bhava. This is the 6th from the AL showing that her external personality shall be involved in litigation and court work. The lord of Simha is placed with a Neecha Karaka of marital life and must give its results. Since Simha is a malefic Prishthodaya Rashi, rising feet first, its results shall be felt in the last one-third of the Dasha period. The Narayan Dasha period of Simha is 1999-2005. Thus there are divisions of two years each. The last is 2003-2005, which is running now. Simha will give the results of the most malefic 8th H from Lagna and 6th H of court decree from AL. In 1999-2001, the results of the aspecting and conjoined Grahas would have accrued. In 2001-2003, the results of the Lord of Simha would have come about. The most pertinent fact is that the malefic results of the Rashi are being felt in this phase. From the Dasha Rashi (actually the 7th from Dasha Rashi), Guru is the 5th and 8th L showing that love (5th) is causing ruination (8th) and Shani Rahu in Dasha Rashi make her feel that the spouse (7th L Shani: you) is trying to overpower her personality. Rahu adds delusion, fear, phobias and other malefic manifestations in the sign of the king of the Grahas, the Sun, to whom Rahu and Shani are bitterly opposed. The AD sequence in Narayan Dasha is also quite adverse. Mithun AD is running now and this is the 6th H from Lagna showing violence and court intervention, as too police and physical force. From October, Karka AD will start which is the badly afflicted 7th H from Lagna and the 12th from Dasha Rashi with Neecha Mangal. Violence, rage and injury are more likely than ever in this Antardasha, which lasts till 5th April 2005 when Leo starts which is the 8th House from Lagna and its afflictions have been elaborated upon earlier. From both charts, the actual physical distancing seems most likely around April or thereafter and before that the sole idea should be to avoid further violence and injury, at all costs.

In sum, having studied the Graha tendencies in both charts pertaining to first marriage, the scenario is very seriously afflicted and in such cases it might be most prudent to attempt to minimize the damage from this Karmic event. Divorce appears the best option to try and counteract any possibility of an even greater calamity from affecting the lives at stake. There is a conspicuous want of protective features that might have otherwise helped. It is hoped that this Jyotish analysis will aid a clear vision of the difficulties at hand and offer a reasonable way to step out of this imbroglio too.
