(A Powerful Predictive Tool)

G.K. Goel B.Sc., B.E. Maharishi Parasara, Sage Satyacharya and Acharya Varaha Mihira have unanimously indicated that the following conce ts and rinci les rovide the !asic foundation and structural strength for "udgment and redictive ur ose of a nativity# $. Vargottama %. E&altation of the lanets. '. Planets in their Mool()ri*ona and own signs. +. Placement of the Planet ,s- in Kendra ,angular- houses. .. Strong lacement of the dis ositors. /. Strong and aus icious influence on Vesi house i.e. %nd house from the Sun. )his is in fact applicable, for 2nd houses from any sensitive points or Yoga-Karta planets which plays pivotal role in the furtherance of Yoga. The Concept of Var otta!a lead" the li"t and i" a ver# i!portant and powerful tool in predictive A"trolo #$ This Concept can only be applied and adopted if method of judgment of the nativity is based on divisional charts. )he redictive astrology is !ased on three main illars, namely, $. Planets %. Signs '. 0ouses Maharishi Parasara has recisely e& lained this conce t to his disci le Maitraye in cha ter ', slo*as +, . and / of BP0S# 1)hose, celestial !odies are called the lanets ,Grahas- that move through the 2a*shatras ,or asterisms- along the 3odiac ,Bhacha*ra-. )he 3odiac com rises of %4 asterisms from Aswin to 5evati and also devided in $% e6ual arts *nown as signs ,5ashis- from Aries to Pisces. The Zodiac sign which contains the rising (ascending) point at the time of Birth is called Lagna (ascendant). Based on the ascendant and the lanets "oining and se arating from each other, the native7s good and !ad fortune is deducted8. Parasara has given the concept of Bhavas (houses) along with 12 signs in the a ove narration. This is called the compartmental s!stem of houses. "n this# s!stem the whole sign in which the degree of ascendant falls is considered the first house and su se$uent sign as 2nd house and so on. The longitude of the ascending point ecomes Page 1 of 3

the most sensitive points of the ascendant i.e.1st house# and the sensitive points of other house will e %& apart. The sensitive point of 1&th house will fall in 1&th sign from ascending sign and will have the same longitude as that of the ascending point in Lagna. %n thi" "#"te! M$C$ i" not con"idered a" the Mid&point or cu"p of '(th hou"e$ M$C$ i" however iven pri!e&i!portance due to it and i" widel# u"ed for !an# other i!portant purpo"e"$ )he a!ove mentioned 0indu ,Vedic- Method, advocated !y Sage Parasara, seems to !e more rational and worthy of !eing followed in all astrological calculations articularly in the casting of a nativity. )his method has universal a lica!ility. 9n this system either the longitudinal duration or mid( oint : cus al degree of houses does not get distorted at higher latitudes. Parasara continued to narrate the descri tion of the lanets, signs, various Kinds of ascendants, u (Grahas and im ortance of ;ee tamsa of $. on either side of sensitive( oint of ascendant and other houses etc. ,;ee tamsa means an effective 3one of $. on either side of the sensitive( oint of ascendant ,or sensitive oints of other houses-. After listening to the a!ove narration, Maitreya en6uired from Sage Parasara#
