THE PLANETS HAVE NO CONSCIOUS BENEVOLENCE OR ANIMOSITY. THEY

MERELY SEND OUT POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE RADIATIONS. THESE ARE CAUSE &

EFFECT EQUILIBRIUM WHICH MAN HAS SET IN MOTION IN THE PAST.A

CHILD IS BORN AT THE PRECISE TIME WHEN THE PLANETARY RAYS ARE IN

MATHEMATICAL HARMONY WITH HIS INDIVIDUAL KARMA(PAST ACTIONS). THE

CHART SHOWS AN UNALTERABLE PAST AND ITS LIKELY FUTURE RESULT.

HOWEVER BECAUSE THE PERSON HIMSELF WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING

THESE EFFECTS THAT PERSON CAN OVERCOME ANY LIMITATIONS OR

DIFFICULTIES INHERENT IN HIS CHART,ALSO THE SELF HAS SPIRITUAL

RESOURCES WHICH ARE NOT SUBJECT TO PLANETARY FORCES.MAN IS A

SOUL(ATMAN) AND HAS A BODY. THE MORE HE IDENTIFIES WITH THE

LIMITLESS SPIRIT(THE SELF/ATMAN) THE LESS HE IS DOMINATED BY

MATTER.

ALL HUMAN ILLS ARISE FROM A VIOLATION OF NATURAL LAW. (THE LAWS

OF NATURE WHICH UPHOLD THE EVOLUTION OF ALL BEINGS IN THE

UNIVERSE) BECAUSE OF CERTAIN MECHANICAL FEATURES IN THE LAW OF

KARMA THE ANCIENT RISHIS(SEERS) DEVISED CERTAIN MEASURES TO

ALLEVIATE (MINIMISE OR REDUCE) THE CURRENT OR FUTURE ILLS CAUSED

BY PAST WRONGS;SUCH AS THE WEARING OF SPECIFIC GEMS/PRECIOUS

METALS, WHICH EMIT AN ASTRAL RADIATION WHICH COUNTERS THAT SENT

OUT BY THE PLANET(TO BE EFFECTIVE THE GEMS MUST BE FAULTLESS, OF A

SPECIFIC WEIGHT AND MUST BE TOUCHING THE SKIN).THE EFFECT IS LIKE

THAT OF A LIGHTNING CONDUCTOR ON A HOUSE. THE GEMS RELATING TO

SPECIFIC PLANETS ARE SHOWN BELOW. THE GEM USUALLY RECOMMENDED IS

THAT APPERTAINING TO THE PLANET WHICH IS LORD OF THE ASCENDANT.

OTHER ACTIONS WHICH CAN MINIMISE THE MALIGN EFFECTS IN A PERSONS

CHART INCLUDE YAGYAS (VEDIC CEREMONIES DESIGNED TO APPEASE THE

VARIOUS PLANETS). MEDITATION.WILL POWER.PRAYER OR CONSULTATION

WITH ENLIGHTENED MASTERS. SO JUST BECAUSE THERE IS A NEGATIVE

INFLUENCE IN A CERTAIN PART OF A PARTICULAR

CHART(I.E.RELATIONSHIPS) IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE SITUATION IS

HOPELESS!

ZODIAC

IS AN IMAGINARY SPHERE ENCIRCLING THE HEAVENS INSIDE OF WHICH THE

SUN,MOON,PLANETS ETC.TRAVEL IN THEIR ORBITS.THIS SPACE IS DIVIDED

INTO SEGMENTS OF 30Deg I.E. THE TWELVE SIGNS.AT ONE TIME THESE

SIGNS CORRESPONDED TO ACTUAL FIXED STAR CONSTELLATIONS. BUT DUE TO

THE PROCESSION OF THE EQUINOX (1deg per 70 years) THIS NO LONGER

APPLIES THERE IS A DIFFERENCE OF ABOUT 23 DEG.THE WESTERN ZODIAC

(TROPICAL) IS CORRECTED BY THIS AMOUNT TO GIVE THE SIDEREAL ZODIAC

USED IN JYOTISH. ACCORDINGLY THE SUN SIGN MAY BE IN A DIFFERENT

SIGN IN JYOTISH THAN IN WESTERN ASTROLOGY. HOWEVER JYOTISH DOES NOT

GIVE PERSONALITY/CHARACTER ANALYSIS FOR THE SIGNS AS PER WESTERN

SYSTEM- IT IS MAINLY CONCERNED WITH PREDICTED LIFE EVENTS.

(A MALIFIC PLANET IN A SIGN INDICATES A POSSIBLE WEAKNESS IN THE

CORRESPONDING BODY PART & VICE VERSA)

HOUSES:IN JYOTISH WHICHEVER SIGN IS ON THE ASCENDANT AT BIRTH

BECOMES THE FIRST HOUSE.

PLANETARY ASPECTS

ALL PLANETS ASPECT THE HOUSE 7 SIGNS ON.IE MARS IN THE FIRST HOUSE

WILL ASPECT THE 7TH HOUSE.

IN ADDITION:MARS ASPECTS 4 & 8 JUPITER ASPECTS 5 & 9 SATURN

ASPECTS 3 & 10 RAHU & KETU HAVE NO ASPECT

PRINTOUT CHARTS

THE TWO CHARTS USUALLY SHOWN ARE THE RASI KUNDALI (MAIN CHART) AND

NAVAMSHA (A CHART CALCULATED FROM THE MAIN CHART WHICH PURPORTS TO

SHOW ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS BUT WHICH ALSO HAS A MODIFYING EFFECT ON

THE MAIN CHART. IN BOTH THESE CHARTS THE TOP MIDDLE HOUSE IS

ALWAYS THE FIRST HOUSE (ASCENDANT) AND THE HOUSES ARE SHOWN 1-12

ANTICLOCKWISE ENDING WITH THE 12th HOUSE ON THE TOP RHS. THE

NUMBERS IN THE HOUSE REFER TO THE SIGN IN THAT HOUSE

I.E.4 CANCER).

DASAS PLANETARY PERIODS

IN THE JYOTISH SYSTEM EACH PLANET GOVERNS FOR A FIXED LENGTH OF

TIME FROM BIRTH CAUSING EFFECTS ACCORDING TO THE NATURE OF THE

PLANET AND ITS POSITION AND DIGNITY IN A PARTICULAR CHART.

MAHA DASA (GREAT DASA)

SUN 6yrs

MOON 10yrs

MARS 7yrs

RAHU 18yrs

JUPITER 16yrs

SATURN 19yrs

MERCURY 17yrs

KETU 7yrs

VENUS 20yrs

THE EXACT POINT THAT THIS CYCLE BEGINS DEPENDS ON THE POSITION OF

THE MOON AT BIRTH.

IN THE MAIN PERIOD OF THE DASA THERE ARE SUB DASAS OF THE PLANETS

(BUKTI DASA) WHICH LAST UP TO A FEW YEARS AND WITHIN THOSE (ANTAR

DASAS) WHICH CAN LAST FROM A FEW MONTHS UP TO A YEARS.SO THE

EFFECT WILL BE OF A MAIN INFLUENCE MODIFIED BY THE SUB PERIOD

INFLUENCES.

HOUSE SIGNIFICATIONS

1ST HOUSE SELF /EGO/BODY

2ND HOUSE=WEALTH/SPEECH/FAMILY LIFE

3RD HOUSE=BROTHERS/SISTERS/VALOUR/VITALITY/ADVENTURES/MENTAL STABILITY

4TH HOUSE=MOTHER/GENERAL HAPPINESS/HEART/BUILDINGS/FIXED ASSETS

5TH HOUSE=SONS/DAUGHTERS/KNOWLEDGE/EDUCATION/PAST LIFE

CREDITS/LOVE AFFAIRS

6TH HOUSE=ENEMIES/COMPETITORS/ILLNESS/DISEASE/JOB/FOOD

7TH HOUSE=ALL PARTNERSHIPS,SPOUSE ETC,SEXUAL PASSIONS

8TH HOUSE=LIFE LONGEVITY/DEATH/LEGACIES/PARTNERS FINANCE

9TH HOUSE=DESTINY/LUCK/FORTUNE/FAITH/PHILOSOPHY

10TH HOUSE=KARMA/CAREER/ACTION/FAME

11TH HOUSE=HOUSE OF GAINS & PROFIT

12TH HOUSE=HOUSE OF LOSS & EXPENDITURE/AFTERLIFE.SANCTURIES.

HOUSE ANALYSIS

TO ANALYSE THE STRENGTH/QUALITY OF ANY HOUSE YOU MUST LOOK AT 3 THINGS;

1/ THE HOUSE LORD POSITION

2/PLANETS IN THE HOUSE OR ASPECTING THE HOUSE( OR HOUSE LORD)

3/ THE PLACEMENT OF THE KARAKA(PLANET WHO REPRESENT EACH OF THE 12 HOUSES E.G. 7TH HOUSE =VENUS) PLANET OF THE HOUSE.

REMEMBER THE PLACEMENT OF THE KARAKA IN THE HOUSE FOR WHICH IT IS KARAKA DENIES OR DELAYS THE THING IT PROMISES. SAT IN 8TH GIVES LONGEVITY; SAT IS KARAKA FOR 8TH HOUSE OF DEATH.SITUATED IN 8TH HOUSE DENIES THIS ;GIVES LONGEVITY.

THE 27 LUNAR MANSIONS (NAKSHATRAS)

THE ZODIAC IS SPLIT INTO 27 PARTS EACH PART HAS A NAME ASWINI,KRITTIKA ETC AND IS RULED BY RAHU/KETU OR ONE OF THE PLANETS. THE NAKSHATRA ARE CLASSIFIED INTO THREE TYPES;HUMAN,RAKSHASSA, GOD. THE NAKSHATRAS ARE USED AMONGST OTHER THINGS FOR ASSESSING RELATIONSHIP COMPARABILITY BETWEEN TWO CHARTS.

 

TIMING OF EVENTS

EVENTS PROMISED IN THE CHART BY POSITIONING OF PLANETS IN VARIOUS HOUSES OR YOGAS (PLANETARY UNIONS) ARE LIKELY TO MATERIALISE WHEN THE PLANETS INVOLVED START THEIR DASA PERIOD MAJOR/SECONDARY OR THIRD OR WHEN TRANSITS OF RELEVANT PLANETS OCCUR.

I.E. TO SEE WHEN ROMANCE/RELATIONSHIPS MAY START LOOK FOR THE DASA(1/2/3) PERIOD INVOLVING (A) THE LORD OF THE 7TH HOUSE (B) ANY PLANET IN THE 7TH HOUSE OR (C) ANY PLANET ASPECTING THE 7TH HOUSE OR ITS LORD.
