Congenital Diseases - A study from Trimsamsa varga *

by Prof. C.Sambasiva Rao , Chairman, Universal College of Astrology.Hyderabad.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Published in Annual Souvenir 2009 of Jyotirvastu Vignanasamsta Hyderabad

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Diseases are of two types, -

1) Real disease -i.e., Arising out of inherent weaknesses (congenital weakness of some body part, such as liver- diabetes, lungs- asthma, heart- blood pressure) – Real disease can affect either of the body or of mind.

2) Acquired diseases i.e., from external sources such as bacteria, viruses etc.,

Congenital immaturity: Every human body has some immaturity in their body anatomy. Such immature zones lead to various diseases. Lesser the immature zones better the health condition. Congenitally immature parts of the body become the principal factors of death in the long run. Congenital immaturity is such a natural phenomenon which can't be resisted by any means. Hence the life is dependent on the planetary influence. The reasons for Congenital immaturity were attributed to the strength of the birth star i.e., natal moon position. Congenital disease is a disease or disorder that is inherited genetically from immediate parents or some grandparents in the family dynasty. This can be either paternal side or maternal side. These symptoms of disease may be controlled in a generation, by medicines / by any other curative methods. Still the recurrence of such symptoms cannot be ruled out in any of the next generations in the family.

Astrology and Genetics - DNA is chemical material that governs inheritance in living beings. The structure of DNA in human body has a similarity to the spiraling pattern of planets in solar system. DNA contains the code of human life. Planets indicate the cosmic code of life. Planetary configurations at conception and at birth time influence the genes of the child. The natal chart gives information on genes and genetic engineering in a body.

Astro-genetical factors -Generation to generation the genealogical symptoms are carried out biologically. Natal planetary configuration give an impression on the symptoms of the genetical factors brought down to a native as well as the symptoms being carried out to the next generation. Crucial points that are responsible for transmission of genetical factors are lagna, moon and 5 th bhava and / or seventh bhavas from thereon of father or mother's birth charts. Astro genetical Influence is the ability of a parental sign to appear as the lagna / chandra lagna in the chart of the child. Such ability depends on the frequency of its appearance as 'crucial point' in the ancestral charts i.e., of parents/grandparents / great grandparents. Influences of transiting planets on the crucial sign at the time of birth of the child also indicate genetical influence. Astro genetical factor has an embedded influence in any chart to influence the next generation.

To identify congenital disease astrologically – Study of divisional charts, along with rasi chart give important indications of the diseases and more so of congenital diseases.

For a study of the divisional charts –

1) Analyze Navamsha and Shashtamsa chart like a normal chart, look at the lagna, lagna lord, the 6 th house and its ruler. 2) Analyze rasi lagna lord and see how it is placed on the navamsa, shashtamsa or other vargas. 3) Analyze karakas, significators of the body organs and see their positions in the Vargas. 4) Analyze dasha and bhukti lord and its placement in the Vargas. 5) Analyze the Moon and its placement or affliction in the Vargas.

Among the divisional charts - Trimsamsa indicates the weakness of body, mind and the soul (weakness inherited from past births). The key signification of the Trimsamsa can be known by finding out the root of the divisional chart. Trimsamsa means 30 th division and by expunging the multiple of 12, we arrive at 6 (30-12*2), which is the house of diseases, servants/ service, enemies and litigation.

Trimsamsa chart analysis is very much needed to identify congenital diseases. Trimsamsa divisional chart is related to affliction, misfortune and disease.

(i). Focus is on the planets related to the dushtana houses and their connection to the rashi chart. (ii). Planets badly placed in the Rashi and in the Trimsamsa can cause problems in their dasha periods. Congenital diseases are indicated by the 8 th house as a matter of inheritance and as a result of the debt of past life karma. 6 th house indicate the debts, diseases and enemies being acquired in the present life.

Trimsamsa indicate sub-conscious level i.e., the effect of the enemies are embedded in our sub- conscious mind and troubles our existence from within. Trimsamsa chart is used to know about diseases which are borne out of six inherent weaknesses. The biggest enemies are our six sources of weaknesses. The six weaknesses are broadly signified by Saturn, the Karaka of sixth house for diseases. The six sources of weakness can be attributed to affliction to one of the pancha tattvas (five primordial elements) and thus shall show the kind of diseases one would suffer with. Six weaknesses are governed by 1) Mars- Anger ( Krodha ) , 2) Mercury- Jealousy (Matsarya) , 3) Venus- Lust (Kama) , 4) Saturn- Intoxication (Mada) , 5) Rahu- Greed ( Lobha) , 6) Ketu- Illusion ( Moha ). In calculating Trimsamsa - the luminaries- Sun and Moon are left out as they are the sources of light. Jupiter is left out as it represents the wish of divine consciousness. Moreover, these three are of the sattva guna and capable of curing the weaknesses.

While interpreting the Trimsamsa chart – we have to observe the troubles due to enmity – 1) Among tattvas in rasi chart and in dasa, bhukti lords; 2) Among planets and tattvas, 3) Among tatvas and dieties; 4) Among four trikonas. Special Houses in Trimsamsa to be studied are 4 th house: House of Cure; and 12 th house:

Hospitals or the place of cure. If one is conscious of curing bad forces indicated in Trimsamsa, one would not have any weakness at all. This is the best remedy of any weaknesses.

Lagna of rasi chart shows the native himself. Lagna Trimsamsa shows his weaknesses. In this it is opposite of what is shown by a Drekkana chart, the chart of strengths.

The sources of weaknesses (and related troubles) can also be seen from the three houses which control the longevity, i.e., Lagna, Eighth and Tenth, whereby the strength of the lords of these three houses give the clue to the longevity of the house under consideration, affliction to these houses by natural malefics or 6 th lord of Rasi Chart. These planets also indicate the troubles in the body parts governed by them.

For timing of weaknesses: Naisargika dasa (natural period) is a wonderful tool in finding out

3

negative experiences one is likely to go through in this life. i.e.,

Mars: 2 nd to 5 th year of age,

Mercury: 5 th to 12 th ;

Venus: 13 th to 32 nd ;

Jupiter: 33 rd to 50 th ;

Saturn: beyond 50 th year of age.

Any afflictions to these planets will show negative experiences in the corresponding age group.

This is also an indication of the curses on these planets known from Trimsamsa.

For timing of the diseases or difficult periods: The effective system is the Vimshottari Dasha system. The Maha dashas of the afflicting or afflicted planets in the sub-dasha of another afflicting or afflicted planet tend to trigger the onset of the disease indicated on the chart. The transits are used to fine tune time and prediction. Difficult dashas or sub dashas of the planets debilitated/ combust /defeated/afflicted lagna lord/malefic planets/ connected to 6 th or 8 th or 12 th houses/ connected to dushtana houses / connected to malefic planets.

The transits (Gochara)-The manifestation of a disease is usually a combination of an adverse Dasha and an adverse transit happening at the same time. It is important to watch the transits of the lagna ruler over bad houses/ low ashtakavarga bindu houses/ when it is aspected by malefic planets. The adverse transits of Mars or Ketu can bring sudden or acute diseases, accidents, wounds, injuries by fire, pitta aggravation or surgery. The adverse transits of Saturn or Rahu can bring vatha aggrevation/ pain/chronic disease/ stagnation/ worries / fall from grace.

Remedies: A remedy can be suggested based on Trimsamsa Lagna lord i.e.,

if Saturn- Pranayama;

if Jupiter- Meditation;

if Mars-Light a lamp;

if Venus-Puja or Daana(charity);

if Mercury- Mantra Japa.

One school of thought suggest that one who worships all the above Panchadevatas everyday) shall have a smooth life and shall always be protected irrespective of evils, because all Trimsamsas are covered by this worship.

In Panchopachara Puja, the five tattvas can be propitiated by using the materials signified by them i.e.

for Agni- Deepa - Lighting a lamp;

for Prthvi- Gandha- Perfume ;

for Vayu- Dhoopa- Incense stick ;

for Jala- Naivaidya- Food ;

for Akasha- Pushpa.

Another best remedy for any planet is to worship the Deity concerned with the planet's trimsamsa. i.e.

if Sun is in Mars's Trimsamsa- Agni- worship Surya ;

if in Mercury's Trimsamsa- Prthvi- worship Ganesha ;

if in Venus's Trimsamsa- Jala- worship Devi ;

if in Saturn's Trimsamsa- Vayu- worship Shiva ;

if in Jupiter's Trimsamsa- Akasha- worship Narayana . That will remove negativity of that planet.

Meaning of the word 'Esoteric'

Philosophically, 'ESOTERIC' mean the one hidden from all but well know in a particular group of an esoteric cult. Great Philosophers like Plato, Aristotle were concealing the 'true' doctrines from all except to their followers mostly because the messages cannot easily be understood by one and all.

Ancient philosophies are of two types – Exoteric and Esoteric. Exoteric are those which are understandable only to philosophers whereas Esoteric are those which cannot easily be understood by all. This has profoundly affected modern thought and the exoteric matters are becoming esoteric in a course of time.

Esoteric meanings of names used in the worship of Gods in Hindu Mythology The power of the Word of 'God' is effective and predominant over the material as well as spiritual matters. God is powerful in all things, and that the verses/ mantras chanted on GOD/Goddess have exoteric and esoteric meaning. Neither their outward prevents their inward, nor do their inwards prevent their outward meaning. The greater truths are often hidden behind the veil of metaphors. 'Esoteric' is synonymous to 'mysterious'. Mystery is a hidden secret and is spiritual. Although many can see and hear many things all cannot not understand all of them as they themselves may not believe it and may not experience it. Hindus worship GOD in different forms - GOD / GODESS. Each name used in a worship do suggest an esoteric meaning.

Esoteric meaning of the names used in the worship of Lalitha devi-

Hindus, in Srividya tradition worship Goddess 'Lalitha Devi' with so much emphasis on the liturgical listing of 1000 names (Lalithasahasranam), their symbolism give much insight into the esoteric ism of this goddess. Names of ‘Lalitha’ suggests that she is beyond conceptualization, she is omnipotent, and

a single form of creator, maintainer and destroyer. On gross level she is everything that is

three-fold in this universe, including (to name a few) the three worlds, three energies, and three tattvas. On a more subtle level, Lalita is the nature of Siva, Sakti,and Atman. Thus, Siva is Sakti and Sakti is Siva; the two are one and the same in a constant union.

Pure Consciousness does not exist without the Creative Energy. Each individual Atman

is no different than either Siva or Sakti. Atman is, itself, the union of the two and is, itself,

Absolute Divinity.

1

The Sri Vidya tradition claims that these three categories do not differ from one another. Thus, once the knower" begins the "process of knowing," that "knower"actually becomes the "object of knowledge.". In this realization, one travels from the manifest world back into the Bindu Point and into the Absolute Consciousness. Translating this into "Lalita language," a devotee himself becomes the Absolute by worshiping reciting the mantra of Lalitha, the Supreme Consciousness. Knowing oneself to be God, experiencing in full the presence of Lalita is salvation (moksha)

Esoteric Meaning of the Ten Avataras in Hindu Mythology

"Asato Maa Sat-Gamaya, - Tamaso Maa Jyotir-Gamaya, -Mrityor Maa Amritam-Gamaya"

The above prayer in Hindu scriptures epitomises the purpose of the Lord’s Creation, the grand culmination of going back into that Transcendence out of which these countless names and forms have been evolved as a blissful act of play by the One without a second. The plan of the Divine Will is that out of the One infinite, names and forms may flow out and for a time there may be a blissful play of this divine multiplicity and then once again, when the Divine Wills, there may be a going back into the pristine glorious source. This cycle of becoming and perishing, birth and death, is the characteristic of this world-play. Thus, a going back into the original grandeur of Brahman means an ascent from this unreality into that Supreme Reality. This process is being worked out by all evolved beings.

From time to time great ones have come, who have systematized this Cosmic plan and formulated a method so that individuals in whom this purpose has been awakened may make use of this method and reach the goal quickly, that they may consciously achieve this process in themselves. These methods have come to the various religions of humanity. Gradually, these religions have had a greater and ever-widening group of followers. These great groups exist all over the world as the great section of Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Christians, and so on.

But the one inescapable fundamental fact about these religions remains that all these various religions are but methods which seek to work out in some way or other the ascent of man from birth and death to Immortality. The ten Avataras of the Lord, which are described in Hindu scriptures, are an order calculated to teach us a sublime spiritual lesson. Lord said in Bhagavad Gita, "Sambhavami Yuge Yuge", which mean – that He incarnates Himself, whenever necessary, to put mankind into correct path to lead Divine life. The gist of Avataras is to kill brutality in man and correct him towards Divinity.

1. Matsya (Fish) Avatara.- Fish lives in water, shut out from the two important elements for

life—pure air and sunlight. Yet, if you liberate the fish from its aquatic prison and place it in

life-giving sunshine surrounded by fresh air, it is greatly distressed and would die in a few minutes. Similarly, the man who is sunk in worldliness, who is worse than a beast, cannot bear the sunlight of godliness and fresh, pure air of divine life. He revels in his own dark region deprived of all spiritual light.

2. Kurma (Tortoise) Avatara.- The tortoise lives in water; but is able, to an extent, to live on

the shore, too. This corresponds to the first-stages of man’s career from bestiality to humanity

and from humanity to divinity. He likes to live sunk in ignorance, but does not seriously mind the light of truth.

2

3.

Varaha (Boar) Avatara. - Here the evolution has taken the Jiva completely away from this

worse-than-beast stage, away from the aquatic prison, and the boar, though considered as the lowest among the animals, is yet an animal and lives on mother earth, basking in sunshine and breathing fresh air.

4.The Nrisimha (the Man-lion) Avatara - crown of animal-creation. Integrated personality indicates the beast nature in man. Great violent with a purpose of killing. Violence and the spirit of destruction is main in this while trying to transcend the bestiality;

5.The Vamana (the Dwarf) Avatara.- No animal nature. It is completely human with a greatly limited capacity. This avatar suggests that the man is capable of transcending all limitations and realising his unity with Brahman.

6. The Parasurama Avatara – a man where the humanity has supervened. From this there are

three object-lessons.-

I) One must sub serve his will to that of his 'Guru' – His perfect faith in father as 'Guru' led to implicit obedience and perfect subservience to the higher will. As per father's order he killed his mother and when the same father granted a boon he used it with a request to get back the mother live. His father got her back to life.

II) Any can rise into divine nature only by annihilating his brutal nature and by sublimating the human nature, Unrighteous kings were killed by Parasurama much against Sattva nature of his Bramin cult. This shows that in Yoga sadhana certain amount of destruction is absolutely necessary.

III) One should nullify his brutal nature and then, he becomes a true human being. One should learn to sub serve his Guru, and then he should destroy all hurdles in the way. To please his father Parasurama has killed a king who has stolen a milk cow from his father. But, father warned him for forgetting his own dharma as a Brahmin who should not retaliate, and should only be patient as a sign of forbearance and forgiveness. Father has also punished him to undertake a countrywide pilgrimage.

7. Rama Avatara – One should serve his Guru with love, sincerity and obedience for

liberation or God-realisation. Sri Rama killed many Asuras as told by his Guru Vismamitra, and by his Grace Sri Rama followed Sattvic virtues like truthfulness, love, compassion and

purity. Similarly, we

8. Krishna Avatara, -a Purna Avatara. - Tells any spiritual aspirant with all necessary

teachings to attain one-ness with God. He must serve humanity in all respects, without distinction of caste, creed or sect. Sri Krishna was trying compromise to avert the Kurukshetra war. Sri Krishna practised and preached the selfless service, in the Bhagavad Gita.

9. Buddha Avatara. -taught that one can attain God-realisation by practicing even a

single divine virtue of non-violence (Ahimsa) in thought, word and deed.

10. Kalki Avatara. - which is meant for removing the ignorance in humanity by awaking

consciousness of Divinity.

Esoteric meaning of the Twelve signs as Ascendant.

Human soul has a wide purpose with its arenas of growth, levels of consciousness and service. Soul's purpose is reflected in the esoteric meaning of the ascendant sign in zodiac. Following are the brief symptoms of ascendant signs and are to be seen in comprehension with modifications in the light of its connection to planets.

ARIES - Replacing instant desire with will; assertively increasing the Higher Self; discerning and also by embodying Divine Will.

TAURUS – wise steward of the Earth's resources, utilizing them for the fulfillment of the Divine Plan; transmutes material attachment into spiritual aspiration

GEMINI - Giving love and applying wisdom lovingly and help to connect people and promote planet wide unity of all Humanity

CANCER - Realizing the Oneness of all manifested life, human, animal, vegetable, and mineral to mass consciousness to uplift and inspire Humanity toward the universal Love of the heart chakra

LEO - Becoming centered in God-consciousness with perfect personality with soul energy to radiate Love to others to usher to a higher planetary consciousness

VIRGO - Refining the personality to receive the energies of the soul and to sow God Consciousness to rearrange the physical plane to receive the higher energy necessary for planetary initiation

LIBRA - Seeing everyone as part of oneself to develop Wholeness through cooperation with the Higher Self and the Divine Plan.

SCORPIO - Transmuting lower desires into Higher Will as a spiritual warrior and catalyst of healing through the embodiment and transmission of Divine Power

SAGITTARIUS – With the experience of all facets of human life develops complete acceptance, understanding, and love of other. Inspires others toward greater understanding of life and of each other with a torch of Light and Love.

CAPRICORN - Working productively develops patience, persistence, and perseverance. Progresses spiritually with assumption of greater responsibilities in helping to manifest the Divine Plan on Earth

AQUARIUS – Realising the universality of Spirit, the Divine essence, Unity of all beings, interplanetary and extra planetary. Serving uniquely and in a cooperatively with others. Works under the direction of the Planetary Hierarchy. Helps the whole of Humanity to awaken in consciousness.

PISCES – Getting aware of ingrained personal attitudes, cultural thought forms, and societal institutions which hinder planetary progress. Then yielding Power to transmute them into higher forms of energy to clear the way for the new thought forms which will serve the Divine Plan of evolution for the planet and the solar system.

Esoteric nature of planetary energies as rulers of signs.

An esoteric view of zodiac signs and their lords reveal much about the soul's path in the cycle of re-births. A study of Leo and its ruler tell that Sun's energy, esoterically, has a triadic nature with three aspects i.e., Physical level; heart level; and Spiritual level. Sun rules Leo on both exoteric and esoteric levels. Neptune is the agents to carry to earth the energies of the Sun at heart level while Uranus play such role at the Spiritual level. Thus the Sun cover both Neptune and Uranus. The Sun symbolizes the personality, and in Leo the personality undergoes an evolution in self awareness from the personal to the trans personal. Selfishness, egotism, and personal will are being conquered for Universal Love. In this the Sun,Uranus and Neptune, are involved. Leo contributes to the development and expression of self consciousness, with a realisation of the existence of something greater than just physical body which binds all human being. On a next step, the Sun with Neptune one realizes and somehow helps to make life better for one’s brothers and sisters in the Family of Humanity. Then the mind increasingly responds to the Soul which dominates in awareness with supreme consciousness.

Esoteric Astrology –for the Age of Aquarius

The Age of Aquarius is just commencing. And the traditional astrology is evolving toward 'Esoteric Astrology. Thus the causes rather than effects are essential to study the path of human soul behind the outer body form. Soul is imperishable, eternal and with expanding consciousness in purpose to nullify karma in the repeated cycle of rebirths. In present astrological practices- both in personality astrology and psychological astrology- matters dealt with are of mundane, spiritual, fortune telling, and to bring about integration and wholeness. Esoteric Astrology contemplates a larger perspective of life not only as an inhabitant in this solar system but also participating as an ‘energy center’ within a greater solar life.

Esoteric Astrology & the Seven Rays

Greatest psychologists of last century developed Psycho synthesis techniques from the Seven Rays. Esoteric astrology take the help of theories of such Science of Seven Rays. The planets are simple instruments for the energies to transmit to Earth through the zodiac whose signs have special reactions with the rays. The rays can be studied by themselves and constitute what is known as Esoteric Psychology. The seven rays were attributed to the important aspects of human life. They are Will power, Love wisdom, and Active intelligence, Harmony through conflict, Concrete science, Devotion idealism, and Ceremonial order. Each of them have virtues and vices. Will power may be in destruction, Love-wisdom lead to dispassion, Active intelligence may adapt manipulation, harmony may cause forceful conflict, Concrete science may help practical application, Devotion and Idealism may bring aggressiveness, Ceremonial order with emphasis on Creative process manifests into forms. The Seven Rays correspond to many ‘septenaries’, which provide the basic building blocks of occultism. Planets ‘rule’ rays, similar to astrological ruler ships, hence the interface between rays, planets & zodiac signs is interesting. To commence the study of horoscope is to determine the rays, first and then interpret the horoscope in light of the rays. These rays

Who can seek Esoteric Astrology Readings ?

For best results those who want an Esoteric Astrological reading should be backed by the right reasons for seeking such a reading. Esoteric Astrology seekers must be at a point in their spiritual development and such reading must be of a value to them. Such seekers themselves receive more information in their Spiritual experiences than in an esoteric astrological reading. One's own spiritual practices are more useful than the esoteric astrology reading by another person.

5. Accurate and useful prediction is, in a sense, a gut feeling of a good practitioner with a

divine blessing.

6. Initiate the study of any chart with respects to Guru, Ishta daivam and Science of

Astrology and with a sense of utility to native.

7. No planet is isolated. All planets work in a concerted manner. At any given time native

gets a package deal of all planets with a leadership of one or more planets depending on their strength in dasa system and / or in transit.

8. Base is only 27 stars, 9 planets and 12 rasis, 12 bhavas - with innumerable number of

permutations

Predictive skills should be refined every time, to guard, against such complexities.

9. Basics like graha tatwa, bhava tatwa and rasi tatwa to be analyzed everytime . Graha

tatwa to be studied in relation to bhava tatwa without ignoring the background rasi tatwa

10. Longevity, Lagna and 11 th bhava strength are to be invariably considered while

reading any bhava.

11. Always elicit and use properly the environmental data like - age, aptitude, medical

reports, inheritances, social conditions etc,

and

combinations

anything

can

be

proved / disproved in astrology.

12. Do not get hurried OR hesitant to conclude prediction.

13. Express negative OR positive predictions in a useful way.

14. Do not mix different systems of astrology.

15. Do not get biased by any attachment to the native / perturbed by events under study-

Following are some of the instances where one is likely to get into an unknown bias.

i.study of chart of a relative / friend , ii.study of a chart dealt with earlier , iii.review of an earlier prediction , iv. Critical family affairs, financial crisis, medical condition, etc.

16. Mathematical calculations should be meticulous but not to the extent of eroding

predictive skills. Calculations are for quantitative analysis while predictive part is a

qualitative assessment. Both are important and are to be used in a judicious way.

17. Disciplined way of life and detailed study of the system and careful observation of

chart definitely lead to valuable readings.

18. Intuition of astrologer plays a vital role in predictions. Intuition is described, in a way,

as a sixth sense. Using all known five senses in a disciplined way is a definite base for best intuition. This is first step to reach higher levels and should be practiced by everyone.

19. Common sense is the essential element in predictive part of astrology.

1

20.

Astrology subject do have some limitations - like any other science - One should use

this science within the limitations to draw the best results.

21. Clarify to everyone what can be known / what is to be known / how to know anything

from the science of astrology - it is a divine subject - everything / anything / at any time / by anybody cannot be known without divine blessing.

22. Revelations of ‘Karma theory” cannot be ignored in the study of astrology.

Karma theory reveal the prevailing mix of prarabdha, sanchita, agami with the aid of Sun (atmakaraka), Moon (manokaraka) and other five planets (representing human body i., flesh, blood, bones etc, Just as human body is subjected to the influence of biological inheritance, environmental effects etc., the soul is subjected to the prarabdha karma. Combined action of soul and body is the result of human actions. These actions are qualified by satwa, rajo,and thamo gunas of mind. In short, the input of human actions are qualified by satwa, rajo, thamo gunas while the output get classified into dharma, ardha, kama, moksha. The output can again be, broadly, classified into spiritual (dharma, moksha) and materialistic (ardha,kama). In Predictions –bhava results do fall into spiritual/material aspect of life. In the light of this the role of Karma theory cannot be ignored in predictive astrology.

Significance of astrology is to be seen in the light of highest level of human attainment. Astrology teaches in great detail about the controls upon us. The real value of astrology is gained when the astrologer and the client are convinced of the need for spiritual progress in their lives.

Note: List of hints cannot be concluded - anytime anybody's experience can improve the list. Hence reader is requested to improve for better use and circulate.

1 Importance of TRANSIT Astrology Transit astrology (gochara) refers to the influence of a transiting planet

Importance of TRANSIT Astrology

Transit astrology (gochara) refers to the influence of a transiting planet when in contact with the birth time position of itself or of other planets in the natal chart. This is followed both in sayana and nirayana systems

Influence of transits in astrological studies is highly important as every planet is always in transit. Natal chart indicate the position of planets at birth time. Natal charts sometimes lead us to a false impression that the planets are stagnant in the natal position. But no planet is stagnant at any time. They constantly move in their respective tracks.

Transiting movement of planets indicates a probable time of an opportunity for development or otherwise with the potential promised in natal chart.

Transit astrology is the study of constantly changing angular distances of ever moving planets with the sensitive areas in natal chart.

The transiting planets happen to touch the same point at regular intervals as per their speed. The fast moving planets conjunction with their natal positions repeats at shorter intervals while that of slow moving planets repeats at very long intervals.

Transit chart: Transiting planets are shown over the natal chart, generally, in outer circle. This is to indicate the angular distance of transiting planets to those of the natal position of planets and bhava sputas.

Natal Chart: A natal chart is the snapshot of planetary configuration at a given birth time. Planets after birth time also continue to move in respective tracks while the native is growing in age - mentally and physically.

Planets are posited at specified points in a natal chart as per the past life karma of the native. Stellar astrology theories imply that in a natal chart planet(s) are hosted by star(s) as per the nature of previous karma of the native. Moon posited star is picked as Birth Star for astrological study because Moon is manokaraka. Role of mind is important in formation of

present life events. Mind is the threshold for the entry of previous life events in to this life. Negative feelings of mind like envy, jealous, anger, revenge etc., are the entry time symptoms of past life bad karma influence.

Natal chart is a zodiac of 360 degrees spread in 12 signs with 12 bhava sputas and 12 planetary sputas. Here, planets are taken as 12 including the Nodes and Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

Natal chart is analyzed on the basis of Graha Tatwa plus Bhava Tatwa and Rasi tatwa. The analysis is focused on the position of planet in a bhava and the rasi behind such a position.

Sensitive areas in Natal chart: Out of 360 0 of Zodiac the sensitive areas are only 24 points i.e., 12 bhava sputas and 12 graha sputas.

In advanced theories some points like sahamas, brigu bindu, mid points etc are also considered as sensitive areas in natal chart. These points are arrived as per certain formulae and marked in natal chart.

Sensitive time: The sensitive time is the time when a transiting planet contacts/aspects a sensitive area in natal chart.

Contacts (aspects and conjunctions): Contact of transiting planet with the sensitive area in natal chart is in many ways e.g., aspects or conjoins the natal position of all planets. Conjunction is rapt and wide. Here consider the aspects of both Vedic and Western astrology.

Natal chart indicate the opportunities and strengths of the native. Transit charts indicate the time of fructification of events as per the favorable and unfavorable angular distances of the transiting planets to sensitive areas in natal chart.

Caution: Transiting planets by NO MEANS are capable of giving any extra benefits than what is promised in the natal chart.

Transit astrology (gochara) is of different types – Some of them are given below.

1.

Lunar gochara - Based on sign wise distance of transiting planets from the natal sign position of Moon in natal chart.

2.

Tarabalam - based on the distance of transiting moon posited star from the birth star in natal chart. Mostly used in election astrology.

3.

Chandra ashtamam – based on the sign wise distance of transiting moon from the Moon occupied sign in natal chart. Mostly used in election astrology.

4.

Sadesati, kanataka sani periods based on the distance of transiting Saturn posited sign from the moon posited sign in natal chart.

5.

Lagna Gochara: Deals with the sign wise distance of transiting planets from the lagna sign in natal chart.

6.

Stellar Gochara: Deals with the distances between the stellar positions of transiting planets from the birth star in natal chart.

7. Ashtaka Vargu: Kakshas and bindus in natal chart indicate the transit results. Strength of the transiting planet is dependent on the Kakshas occupied in transits as well as the bindus in each Kaksha in natal chart.

8. Tajaka System – Vashapala chart – is cast as per the sun position in transit. Natal chart is progressed in time. The distance of transiting planets in that year and the Sahama points in Varshapal chart are used for further analysis. This is somewhat

similar to the Progression charts made very year in Western system of astrology. Progression charts made in Western astrology or Varshpal charts in Tajaka system indicate the psychological developments occurred by that age within the native. In a way they supplement the study of natal charts.

9. KP system – for fine tuning of the transit results the position of transiting planets in all 249 subs in 360 0 are studied.

10. Vimshottari Dasa system adopted in the Vedic astrology is based on the presumption of progression of natal MOON position. Progression of Moon concept is somewhat similar concept of Sun progression in Western astrology.

Suggested mode of study in transit astrology

Main concept in all the transit studies is to see the angular distances of transiting planets to the sensitive areas in natal chart just to arrive at the sensitive time. In view of this main concept the following methods are suggested to always begin a study of transit influence on the sensitive areas in natal chart.

1. Observe the natal positions of 12 bahava sputas and 9 planetary sputas in natal chart. If one is conversant with the use of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto they can include them also.

2. Observe the transit chart and the 9 or 12 planetary positions in transit chart.

3. Verify current situation:

(i)

With the current dasa bhukti and antara lords in transit chart and their angular distance with their natal positions. This indicates what the native is presently experiencing – good / bad.

(ii)

With the bhavas indicated by current dasa/ bhuti/antara lords as per natal chart and the malefic /benefic indications when interpolated with their transit positions.

4. Now come to the purpose of present study e.g., education / job/ marriage etc.,

(i)

Verify how far the current dasa / bhukti / antara lords are favorable as per their natal and transit positions. ( as per item 3 above)

(ii)

Now verify the transit of major planets like Saturn, Rahu-ketu, Jupiter- see how far they are favorable or otherwise for the bhava(s) under study.

5. Study of transits is important -

(i)

Bad transits are likely to damage the good configuration promised in natal chart.

(ii)

At the same time if a bad configuration is seen in natal chart a good transit can rarely repair the likely damage.

Caution: Transiting planets by NO MEANS are capable of giving any extra benefits than what is promised in the natal chart.

6. Natal chart indicate the strengths and weakness and the transits provide opportunities and the scope to fructify events.

7. Observe whether any natal planet is under the influence of TRIPLE transit – one from slow moving planets and other from fast moving planets. Slow moving planets provide benefic / malefic background and the fast moving planets set the time of event – good / bad. Slow moving planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu-Ketu, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Fast moving planets are Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Moon.

8. Angular distances are expressed by way of aspects. In fact, in a zodiac of 360 0 the angular distances, if measured geometrically, from a point to point result in more than 100 connections. They start from conjunction i.e, in same degree to opposite and to the other half side. But, for practical purposes, few effective angles are taken in Vedic astrology and also in Western astrology. Vedic astrology recognized 7 th aspect to all planets and special aspects to Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Western astrology recognized conjunction, sextile, square, trine, opposition etc.,

9. Approaching and Separating aspects in zodiac – Faster moving planet crosses a slow moving planet in zodiac at any time. A transiting planet while reaching an exact conjunction / aspect to a sensitive area makes an applying aspect and after that conjunction / aspect resorts to separating aspect. This cannot be ignored. Applying aspect is essential as any event in life need a gestation period to fructify. Time taken in applying aspect is likely to coincide with the gestation time taken in fructification of a life event. This is to be verified in each case and at every time. Example- Gestation time for getting a job involves getting information about availability of job; applying for it; getting an interview; getting selection and joining in a job. All these stages can be traced in phases in the duration of applying aspect. Time span of separating aspect may indicate the strengthening / worsening of the event so occurred.

10. Fructification of event always include the “happening” or “not happening” of an event.

11. Retrograde planets in transit – Transiting planets’ apparent retro motions have a deep meaning in the fructification of event. This relates to the study of natal planets direct or retro position. During retro motion a planet get stagnant twice before going to retro and turning to direct motion. An event triggered in direct /retro motion may get fructified (benefic/malefic) when the retro planet get retro / directed. Some theories have ignored the retro motion. Yet, expert observations indicate that the study of retro movements is essentially indicating minor and major changes. In the present complex life situations a planet(s) retro motions cannot be ignored.

12. Planetary return – When a transit planet touches the exact point of its natal position it is said as planetary return. Planet is beginning a new cycle in individual’s life. Important are the return of Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu-Ketu, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Half returns i.e., when the planet touches the 180 degrees to its natal position is also Contd.

important. Particularly return of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto may not occur in short life and medium life periods. So half return is important in case of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

(i)

Jupiter return – is the ideal time for growth and development. All efforts will be rewarded.

(ii)

Saturn return is often a difficult and challenging time – but the decisions taken in this period will have long lasting effect.

(iii)

Uranus return – half return or full return – as per age span – creates casual filtrations in relationships, routine life styles are broken, people develop new interests, Many women experience pre-menopause stage in half return of Uranus. Men are also likely to experience pre-male menopause.

(iv)

Rahu-Ketu return or half return to their natal positions – health care is essential.

Following TABLE show some of the broad effects of transiting planets noticed by experts. Caution- These are general indications and every one must essentially make a holistic approach to the entire natal chart and all transiting planets in finalizing the study results. No planets work isolation. At any given time, native gets a package deal of all planets with a leadership of one or more planets by virtue of their dasa periods, lordships, transits etc.,

An Introduction to Hindu Predictive Astrology*

by Prof. C.Sambasiva Rao , Chairman, Universal College of Astrology.Hyderabad.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Published in TELUGU JAGATHI - World Telugu Federation Conference Souvenir - Dec.2002 held at Singapore -pp127-130

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Introduction: Purpose of this article is to introduce the subject of Astrology to non-astrologers (i.e., who are new to the subject) Astrology is an age-old subject prevalent all over the World in some form or the other. Hindu system of Astrology is considered as a part of Vedas. A detailed study, in a formal way, is well advised for a comprehensive approach.

Purpose of Astrology: Astrology is required for everyone like mathematics. Even an illiterate is aware of mathematics. Similarly everyone is having a sense of planets and their effects on human life and on himself more precisely. Hence every one can also understand Astrology. But only learned Astrologers are able to express, in words, their findings. Knowledge of Astrology is essential to understand intricacies of life to plan for remedial actions. Planetary rays have effect on human life as evident from the effect of Sunrays on human body. The cosmic energy modifies bio-energy in a human being. Human activities are qualified by satwic, rajasic and tamasic qualities. The output of human activity is classified as dharma, artha, kama, moksha. Human life is like a coin with two sides’ i.e., materialistic and spiritualistic sides. Every day / night is good for human life. Good and bad are relative terms. A day suitable for materialistic purpose may not suit for spiritual purpose. Astrology helps to make use of time in a best way with proper planning for material / spiritual goals. Any life guided correctly is like a nourished garden.

Influence of planets on each individual is studied with the help of planetary configuration at his birth time interpolated with the transitory influence of planets on the life of that individual from time to time. A common doubt, in this, is when two human beings are born at the same time how the individual fate is differing and how it can be read from the same horoscope. Once own activities are causes of his destiny. Human being is bestowed with higher intelligence. With the acceptance of concept of rebirth and doctrine of karma it is clear that every one carries with him the memories of previous life. Those memories qualify the activities in present life. This is explained as – Sanchita (i.e., what is brought forward from previous life); Prarabdha (i.e, activites in present life); and Agami (i.e., what is to be carried over to next life).

A common doubt, again, is when cosmic rays control human activity at large how the

sanchita, prarabdha and agami differing. Here it is to be observed that every one is bestowed with ichha sakti (will power); gnana sakti (intelligence) and kriya sakti (human effort). Human being with his dominating ichha sakti, gnana sakti and kriya sakti is modifying sanchita karma / defining prarabdha / qualifying agami karma. Knowledge of Astrology is needed to understand the intricacies involved and plan human activity for better results in materialistic / spiritualistic goals. Although one need to work for materialistic goals in middle age ultimately every one has to work for spiritualistic goals. Hence suitability of time is to be seen from Astrology for timely achievement of different goals.

What is Horoscope ? - Method of Casting of Horoscope is not dealt with, in this article, for brevity and it is essentially recommended to every reader to learn detailed techniques of casting of a horoscope for comprehensive approach. Horoscope is a map of heaven at a given time, say birth time

or query time, indicating the longitudinal positions of planets in natural zodiac. A broad belt of 9° on each side of the Sun’s apparent path around earth is called natural zodiac ( Bhachakara). This is divided into 12 parts called signs or rasis each spreading to 30°. They are named as Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

In making a horoscope there are two schools of thought i.e., Fixed (Nirayana) zodiac and

Moving (Sayana) zodiac. Hindu system mostly follows fixed (Nirayana) system. Astronomical theories followed by different astrologers resulted in different systems. The mathematical difference in fixed and moving zodiac is called as Ayanamsa. Among the duration of Ayananmsa also Astronomers and thereby Astrologers differ in the time of coincidence of

moving zodiac with fixed zodiac. Prominent among the followed are Lahari ayanamsa, B.V.Raman ayanamsa, and K.P.ayanamsa.

Solar system : Planets move around Sun in their orbit in the sequence of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars,Jupiter, Saturn. Moon moves around Earth. Rahu and Ketu are not planets. They are formed with the inter-section of planetary rays – They are called shadow planets and are, however, given planetary status by classical astrologers.

Stars : According to ancient astrological cannons the zodiac is divided into 27 lunar mansions each extending to 13° 20’. They are also called as Asterisms or Stars. These mansions are grouped as triads and a planet is said to rule each triad. The names of stars, the planets that rule them and planets’ respective periods in Vimshotari dasa are as follows. No.of the star indicates its sequential place in natural zodiac i.e., 1. Aswini 2.Bharani and so on.

1.Aswini, 10.Makha, 19.Moola,-Ketu-7 years; 2.Bharani, 11.Pubba, 20.Purvashada,Venus- 20yrs; 3.Kritika, 12.Uttara, 21.Uttarashada, Sun-6yrs; 4.Rohini, 13.Hasta, 22.Sravanam, Moon-10yrs; 5.Mrigasira, 14.Chitta, 23.Dhanishta,Mars-7yrs; 6.Arudra, 15.Swati, 24.Satabhisham,Rahu-18yrs 7.Punervasu, 16.Visakha, 25.Purvabhadra,Jupiter-16yrs; 8.Pushyami, 17.Anuradha, 26.Uttarabhadra, Saturn-19yrs; 9.Aslesha, 18.Jeyshta, 27.Revathi. –Mercury- 17 yrs.

Bhavas – Bhava Tatwa : Natural zodiac marked with planetary positions is divided into 12 parts called bhavas- this is within the natural division of 12 signs. Planets marked in various signs, are thus, seen in different bhavas. The first bhava is called Lagna or Ascendant. Ascendant is the raising sign, in natural zodiac, on eastern horizon at the time for which horoscope is made. Lagna is a benchmark to commence the reading of a horoscope. Various bhavas indicate different aspects of human life as detailed below. Classical astrologers also suggest to commence reading the horoscope from the strongest among Lagna / Sun’s rasi / Moon rasi.

1 st Bhava / Lagna / Ascendent – Body, soul, general temperament,; 2 nd - Money , speech, family, eyes, ears, face, education, longevity.; 3 rd - brothers, sisters, courage, anger, idea, friends, longevity.;4 th - Mother, education, vehicles, lands, immovable property, houses, face, wells, water tanks, agriculture, cattle, crops, relatives; 5 th - Progeny, Education, Intelligence, Skills, Tantric skills, Speculation; 6 th - Enemies, debts, diseases, service matters, competitive exams., 7 th - spouse, Marriage, Lust, adultery, Comfort, longevity,. 8 th - Longevity, Death, Hell, Sorrow.; 9 th - father, comfort, meditation, devotion, pilgrimage, kindness.; 10 th - Profession, Power, Fame, Business; 11 th - Gains, elder sisters, and elder brothers, Monetary gains, success, longevity; 12 th - Expenditure, loss, Wasteful expenses, hell.

Graha tatwa – in general: By virtue of planet(s) ownership of rasis, stars, and mutual friendship among planets they transit in own signs, friendly/inimical signs, or exalted /debilitated signs or moolatrikona signs. The strength of a planet differs as per their transitory position. Quality of planet- graha tatwa- in general is as follows.

Sun: Rajasic,Atmakaraka, Pitrukaraka, Profession, Courage, Power, Eyes, Pittam.; Moon: Rajasic, Mother, Mind, intelligence, beauty, water comfort, truth, silver, Cold; Mars: Tamasic, Brothers and sisters, land, Courage, anger, logic, skill of using weapons, inimical, heat, leadership, small pox ; Mercury: Satwik, Maths, astrology, business, medicine, skills, sculpture, cousins, philosophy,

intelligence, tantric, devotion to lord vishnu ; Jupiter: Satwik, Money, Education, progeny, Astrology, Vedas, Acostics, Gold, House; Vehicle, religion, wealth, relatives, charity. Devotion to god, truth; Venus: Rajasic, Spouse, marriage, music, art, pleasures with women, lust, adultry, comfort, vehicle, wealth, power, humour; Saturn : Tamasic, Longevity, education of mean subjects, worship of mean deities, death, bondage, small pox, illegal, bad behaviour, hell, mean life, huna vidya (i.e., education of foreign language.) Rahu: Tamasic, Tanks, Maternal grand parents, Father, Poisonous medicine, mean life, mean education.; Ketu: Tamasic, Salvation, Paternal grand parents, Philosophical thinking, devotion to God, Renunciation, Knowledge.

Dasa system - Dasa/bhukti/antara periods : Dasa system is followed for timing of an event as per bhava indications. Among different systems Vimshotari system is widely followed. In dasa system each planet gets a leading role as Maha dasa (main period). Within the Main period of a planet all other planets get sub-periods in a definite proportion. Within sub-period of a planet all others planets are allotted sub-sub-periods. Main period is called Mahardasa and subsequent periods are called bhukti, antara, etc. Aggregate of maha dasas of all planets is 120 years. The starting maha dasa and balance thereon at birth time is arrived from the lord of the star where moon is posited at birth time i.e. birth star.

Interpretation of a Horoscope Principles for Prediction:

Caution: Interpretation of horoscope is a matter of decoding divine qualities of zodiac and of planets. - Objective analysis is to be made and properly worded to prevent possible errors and ill effects thereto on native’s psychology. - All efforts should be taken to see that this science of Astrology does not create wrong fears or undue confidence.- The duty of Astrologer is to follow a code of discipline to ensure that this divine science is useful to all.- Accurate and useful prediction is, in a sense, a gut feeling of a good practitioner with a divine blessing.

General reading : Bhava results are blended with rasi tatwa and graha tatwa of

associated in any way with bhava or bhava lord. No single planet works in isolation. At any given time, the native is bestowed with a package deal of all planets with leadership of a planet(s). Detailed reading of a horoscope is to be taken up after making divisional charts (shodasavargas) and arriving at the shadbala strength of planets. However, for the benefit of beginners the approach, in brief, for predictions from rasi chart is given below. A study in the following three directions is required.

other planets

1) A planet in a particular rasi e.g., Sun in Aries / Taurus/ Gemini etc., Moon in Aries, / Taurus/ Gemini etc., and so on. Sun in Aries – active, intelligent, famous etc., when in Taurus- slow and steady, hard worker, intelligent etc., Moon in Aries-likes travelling, impulsive, bold, aggressive etc., Moon in Taurus – Happy, good looking, weaving mind etc., and so on…

2) When a planet is in 1 st bhava /2 nd /3 rd , and so on. E.g., Sun in Lagna – short tempered, lives in foreign land, courageous, wealthy etc., Sun in 2 nd bhava – fortunate, poor eye sight, troubles from government etc., Moon in Lagna – if moon is waxing and that lagna is Cancer, Aries, Taurus or Libra – handsome, learned otherwise bad effects. Moon in 2 nd bhava – happy, good friends, wealthy (if full moon), etc.,

3) When a bhava lord is posited in another bhava the results of two bhavas are blended. E.g., the lord of 1 st bhava is posited in 1 st bhava – healthy, long-lived, hard-working etc., if in 2 nd bhava-Wealthy, respected, leadership etc., if in 3 rd - good brothers, courageous, religious etc.,

Predictions are to be made by observing all the above three directions. For timing of results verify dasa/bhukti/antara etc., period. Also consider the Gochara transit of leading planets and of dasa/bhukti/antara lords to quantify and qualify (benefic/malefic) nature of events.

Gochara results: Transit results are studied with reference to lagna, or Chandra lagna. Chandra lagna is the rasi where moon is posited at the time of birth. Counting from Chandra lagna is in wider practice as we see daily / weekly / monthly / yearly forecasts in various journals. One school of thought counts from birth star to a star where planet is posited in transit. By this, the transit results are

known for shorter periods. The following tables indicate the results of transit of a planet in different stars counted from birth star in nirayana longitudes.

Count the number from birth star to the star where a planet is transiting. As per that number see col. 1 of table I and pick corresponding number of the respective planet from cols. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 of same Table . Use that picked number in col.1 of Table II to check the result of that planet from col.2 of Table II.

Introduction to Palmistry

-----------

(This article is to introduce the subject of Palmistry. No exhaustive approach is made here. Reader's are expected to attend classes under an expert guidance, for further studies and practice.)

Synopsis: Introduction; Origin of Palmistry; Significance of Palm - Biological, Psychological; Right Hand and Left hand-Ancient and Modern Theories; Shape of the Hand; Medical palmistry.

Shape of one's hand-and-fingers, the way one close and open his palm indicate much of his personality.

Medical studies reveal that the nerve endings in the hands are directly connected to the brain and the lines are the graph of the brain's activity. It resembles the ECG of Heart functions. As such the mentally retarded people have limited lines or no lines. As the changes in personality and life styles occurs, in normal people, the lines in their palms also changes.

The patterns on our hands merely reflect what's already happened and how the native act or react in a given situation in future. Palms reveal the strength and weaknesses of the natives.

Origin of Palmistry

Palmistry is an age old science. As per Hindu mythology Palmistry is a part of ‘Anga Vidya’ (Physiognomy) which was first invented by Sea God ‘SAMUDRA’ – so the subject is named as Samudrika Sastra by sages like Narada and Gargya. Lord Skanda is held to be pattern deity of this science. It is also felt that all Gods, Goddesses and all sacred rivers have their symptoms shown in different parts of the palm. In an old story it is said that the Prime Minister of Dusyamtha told Sakunthala that if the palm of child to be born signify signs of royal birth the King will accept her as Queen. Napolean said ‘perhaps the face can deceive but never the hand’.

Significance of Palm:

 

It is studied in two parts (1) Biological significance, and (2) Psychological significance.

A. Biological significance of Palm – Chirognomy: Gives Biological significance – deals with Shape and development of the hand , fingers and nails.

Pale color- Weak constitution.

Fingers – signs of health troubles-i.e., short fingers indicate hasty nature

Yellow eyes- Jaundice

First finger (pointing )– lungs defects

Coated Tongue – indicate stomach troubles.

Middle finger – liver and stomach condition

Hand color- indicate vitality of person

Third – kidneys

Hand shape – Shape of brain centre and its development.

Last (little)- Genetic and Sex troubles

Nails -

Nails – Show health and vitality

1

B. Psychological significance of Palm-Chiromancy – Gives Psychological significance – deals with the interpretation of lines on the hand.

 

i. Pattern of Papillary ridges – formed in the fourth month of pregnancy (i.e., while in mother’s womb) and they do not change throughout life. These patterns exhibit physical and mental defects – kidney, rheumatism, ulcer, asthma etc., which the person has acquired prior to birth – congenital. ii. Palm is divided into three zones -

   

Conscious – will power;

 

Sub-Conscious – hidden characteristics of the person

 

Middle – social adaptability of the person

 
 

iii. Texture of hand

refinement of mind;

 

iv. Elasticity of hand

– adaptability & quickness of mind;

 

v. Color of hand

– nature and temperament of person;

 

vi.

Fingers & Nails

culture, ambitions, many angularities of mind.

 

Right Hand & Left hand- Ancient theories adopted right hand for men and left hand for women for the following reasons.

 

Right hand is active and left is passive – In olden days men played active role while women are submissive, passive and dependent on men for their livelihood.

Merits, strengths and weakness are revealed in active right hand – while they are suppressed in the right hands of passive, submissive and dependent women.

According to Hindu system indication of marriage is to be studied on the left hand on men and on the right hand of women

Left hand is to be studied for children up to 14 years.

 

Latest theories indicate that -

 

Right or left handedness is a product of evolution. In child hood both hands are used up to an age of around two years like a primitive man.

Left hand indicates one's sentiments and desires while the right hand reveal the possibility of the fulfillment of desires.

Left handedness among men may be due to faulty position in mother's womb- mostly seen in twins.

Modern theorists do accept that among generations it is proved that right handedness is considered as normal while the left handedness is considered as abnormal. As such the

 

Right hand reveal mental development and intellectual level while the left hand indicate the inner world – sub-conscious mind, hereditary characteristics etc.,

Left hemisphere in brain shows the conscious behavior and is connected to the right hand.

 

Right hemisphere in brain show sub-conscious behavior and is connected to the left hand. Hence left handed people show abnormal traits. Left handed people lack average intelligence and find difficult in reading and memorizing letters and numbers. YET it is not a rule that left handed people are of less intelligence. Many left handed people can be seen with extra ordinary life styles. Men with left handedness may aim at a successful career by developing special skills.

Papillary ridges on both the hands are formed in the fourth month of the baby while in mother's womb. In case of mentally defective persons, the papillary ridges show a complicated net work in left hand because of the defects in right hemisphere.

These papillary ridges show defective formation in right hand in case of feeble minded persons who do not have study outlook.

The Shape of the Hand -There are three main types of hands: round, square, and rectangular.

 

2

Round, you are the active type. Quick-thinking, quick-acting, always on the go, always trying to get ahead, ambitious, and goal-oriented.

Square, it indicates, as you might suspect, that you are earthy, hard-working, and capable of solving problems (especially those of a logical nature).

Rectangular, you are more of a thinker, a creative type, more in dreaming.

 

Palmistry deals with many items like skin types, hand and finger Combinations, life line, head line, heart line, fate line health line, sun line, auspicious and inauspicious marks etc., are studied to reveal various phases of life.

 

A

separate branch as Medical Palmistry is very famous to diagnose in advance the probable

ill

health and cure. For example, if three or four short parallel vertical lines are seen under

little finger the native is blessed with a wonderful healing touch. This is called the Medical Stigmata, so named because those who have it tend to cure illness much easily.

Mundane Astrology- Natural Calamities – Earthquakes *

by Prof. C.Sambasiva Rao , Chairman, Universal College of Astrology.Hyderabad. (* Published in Annual Souvenir -2011 - Jyotirvastu Vignana Samstha, Hyderabad)

Synopsis: Introduction-Types of Earthquakes-Earthquake prone areas - Effects of Earthquakes- Timing of Earthquakes- symptoms around the occurrence of

earthquakes-

Earthquakes are known from ancient times and our ancestors took considerable interest in describing the causes. Earthquake is a cosmic accident where the four elements viz., Wind, Fire and Water along with Indra cause the earth to shake. Discussion on causes of earthquakes had been a perennial topic in ancient Indian literature. Classical texts concerning natural phenomena are to be carefully interpreted. Brihat Samhita (B.S.) of Varahamihira (5– 6th century AD) and Adbhuta Sagara (A.S.) of Ballala Sena (10–11th century AD) are notable books about earthquakes. Parashara was of the opinion that eclipses and planetary aberrations could also cause earthquakes. Recent research studies on the subject from eminent scholars from India and abroad are also contributing in this area.

Types of Earthquakes - Depending on the time of occurrence and the ruling stellar configuration the earthquakes are classified into four groups. An earthquake which occurs from north in the last quarter of the night or in the first quarter of the day under any a star group belongs to the Wind group (vayavya). Similarly, earthquakes of the Agni (fire), Indra and Varuna (water) group originate from south, east and west, respectively and are governed by specific star groups. So far the effort has been only to group the earthquakes after their occurrence, according to some recognizable attributes.

Earthquake prone areas – Areas are given in classical texts like Brihat Samhita which are to be carefully identified with their present-day equivalents. Ancient writings indicate that Vayu- type earthquakes are most destructive and the Agni, Varuna, and Indra-type earthquakes are comparatively less harmful. The extent of ground shaking indicated is 200 yojanas during Vayu-type earthquake and 90,80 and 70 correspondingly for Agni, Indra and Varuna (one yojana=6miles). Varaha Mihira agrees only with the vayu-type value and for the other three, his values are Varuna-type 180, Indra -type 160, and Agni-type 110 yojanas. Varahamihira’s approach of describing earthquakes in terms of the extent of ground shaking is refreshingly scientific.

Effects of Earthquakes-Vayu-type earthquakes lead to extensive destruction of houses, towers and forts followed by windstorms within a week after such an earthquake. Agni-type earthquake induces surface fires engulfing villages and towns. Rivers and water sources dry up. Indra -type tremors, lead to rains and elimination of colonies. Varuna-type earthquake kills people living along river and sea coasts.

Earthquakes were also supposed to indicate the impending death of kings, outbreak of wars and epidemics. Buddhists believe that important persons will die at the time of earthquakes. Buddha himself said to have interpreted the earthquake occurred before his Nirvana at Kushinagara in 483 BC as the sign that he would soon pass away into Nirvana.

Timing of Earthquakes- Some remarkable events like the time of eclipses, bad aspects of malefic planets, Sun's ingress, full moon, new moon etc., can be mathematically calculated in advance – where as the exact time of earthquake cannot be so calculated. These mathematical calculations are based on the rotation and revolving of planetary bodies. The occurrence of earthquakes, tsunami etc., are the results of the sudden disorders of the five elements (pancha

1

bhutas) due to the changes in gravitational forces among the planets in certain configurations. Nature has yet to reveal to the humanity the results of the disorderly changes in gravitational forces. However, earthquake prone areas are getting identified from centuries. Hence certain areas are getting thinly populated or suitable infrastructure is made to withstand the tremors of lower/ certain higher order. However, heavy tremors are causing damages.

Classical writers and research observations reveal the following symptoms around the occurrence of earthquakes. -

(1) Earthquakes generally follow or precede the eclipses they happen near about the time of eclipse. The country/place in which the eclipse occurs may not be free from danger. ;

(2) At the time of earth-quakes, adverse connections between Mars and Saturn (conjunction, opposition, aspect etc.) have been noted.;

(3) Earthy signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) (some refer to fixed signs i.e. Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) and the planets therein also matter with regard to occurrence of earth-quakes. Saturn in a fixed sign at the distance of 45 degrees from meridian, it is stated that the earthquake will occur in that part of the world which is at the same distance from Greenwich, east or west-depending on the position of Saturn.(This is to be verified with past events);

(4) The timing of occurrence of earthquakes has been noticed between mid-day and sunset or between midnight and sunrise.;

(5) A major planet has been noted to be 'Retrograde' at the time of earthquake.;

(6) The Ruling Nakshtra has been found to belonging to earth or air. ;

(7) Moon and Mercury must conjunct and come in the same Nakshtra.;

(8) Earth-quakes generally happen when there are many planets in or near the movable (Cardinal signs) i.e. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.;

(9) Frequent happening of earthquakes is indicated when the planets like Uranus, Saturn, Mars, or Jupiter occupy Taurus and Scorpio.(this can be verified with past events in the earthquake prone areas like Japan);

(10) In Brihat Samhita, reference has been made to bad omens for causing earthquakes. Other principle is that the Moon be stretched like the yoke of a carriage from the south to the north, there would be earthquakes. An eclipse is heralded by some usual occurrences such as earthquake and terrific thunder. If the earthquake is after an eclipse there would be death of a leading king.

Research studies in this aspect of the last century are revealing the following from a chart drawn at the time of Sun's ingress into Aries sign:

(1) For an earthquake to happen in the year, severe affliction of 8th house or its lord must be indicated (8 th house denotes mass deaths and mass tragedies which do happen in earthquakes also).

(2) Eclipses falling at quadrants to Jupiter, Saturn or Mars also produce earthquakes.

(3)The area of the occurrence is generally indicated by the zodiacal sign in which the above combination occur.-Further studies are to be made in this.

Examples from Earthquakes caused in India and China -

(1) Massive earth quake occurred in Bihar on 15th Jan, 1934. It was a New Moon day and

2

seven planets were in Capricorn (Movable and Airy sign). The Sun, The Moon and Mars were in exact conjunction in Uttarashada ruled by the Sun, lord of 8th from the Moon.

(2) The earthquake caused in airy sign-Gemini ascendant - in Tangshan, (China) - Estimated death toll was as high as 655,000.Five planets in 2nd house (moveable sign). New Moon on 27th July, 1976 was in Pushyami star of Saturn. The Moon and Mercury have a significant role to play in causing earthquakes. Except Jupiter and Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) all planets were clustered within an arc of 45 degrees.

(3) On 11 th October 1737, about 4 to 5 lakh people died due to earthquake near Kolkatta. That time Saturn was in Gemini Ascendant and Mars in 4 th house with Sun and the 12 th lord Venus with Rahu in 3 rd house from ascendant and 4 th from 12 th Taurus.

(4) On 15 th Jan 1934, on a new moon day, earthquake occurred in Bihar when 7 planets were in Capricorn -earthy sign. Mars was exalted with its 8 th aspect on Leo.

(5) On 26 th January 2001 in Gujarat strong earthquake caused when Saturn -12 th lord (Aquarius lagna) was in 4 th and 4 th lord Venus was in lagna aspected by Saturn. This was preceded by two eclipses – solar eclipse on 25 th Dec. 2000 and lunar eclipse on 9 th Jan 2001.

(6) There was a configuration of 8 planets in the movable sign Capricorn on 4 th Feb.1962. Rahu in cancer, Uranus and Pluto in Leo, Neptune in Libra - all other planets in Capricorn a moveable sign. No serious incidents reported to have occurred from the earthquake prone areas. But on February 3, 1962 at 12:44 a.m. on Saturday, there was an earthquake at Fayetteville, Arkansas- It was also felt in Missouri, Kentucky, and Illinois .The earthquake was followed by a minor tremor about an hour and a half later. Saint Louis University reported a magnitude of 4.2 earthquake that was located about 150 miles south of Saint Louis, Missouri.

Example from Earthquakes caused in Japan:

The earthquakes of Japan - in 1923 there was a very devastating earthquake followed by frequent occurrences till 2011. By this Japan was considered as an earthquake prone area. Besides the earthquakes the country was also subjected to severe bomb blasts in Second World War. Yet, Japanese are known for their productive skills.

Example (1) The 1923 earthquake is also known as Great Tokyo Fire of 1923 as the fire spread from the charcoal or wood burning stoves when the many people were preparing their lunch at 11.58 local time – mid day. Many of the stoves were toppled over due to the shaking of earth and the fire spread over. A tsunami was also generated resulting into a loss of 1.5 lakh people and much property.

Example (2) Earthquake of 2011-This time earthquake and tsunami was preceded by Lunar eclipse on 21 st Dec.2010 and Solar eclipse on 4 th Jan.2011. This year in addition to the bad planetary configuration the position of SUPER MOON reappearance after about 18 years caused an increase in its gravitational pull upon the Earth leading to higher tides with consequential earthquakes. As a result of the frequent earthquakes, Japanese construction standards for public buildings were changed suitably. Tokyo was reconstructed with better transportation services and more parks were created as areas of refuge. Hence, in spite of the vast damage in 2011 tsunami - Japan is able to withstand in World Map. This indicates the man's intelligence in making use of the natural benefits despite natural calamities. Japanese are known for their productive skills round the clock.

Hope that all other countries should try to follow the Japanese dedication in building strong infrastructure with sound will power for a global prosperity.

Om Sri Gurubhyo namaha :: Om Sri Ganesaya namaha

Astrological analysis – As per KP system

Principle: Accident is indicated by 8 th bhava- if star lord of 8 th cusp sub lord – if connected to 6 th – sickness after accident; if connected to 12 th hospitalization; if connected to badhaka/maraca sthanas may result in death if no longevity is granted in natal chart otherwise it may result in permanent disability if longevity is granted.

In the chart referred above

ü 8 th cusp sub lord SATURN is posited in the star of MARS and sub of SUN.

ü At birth time MARS is occupant of 9 th Bhadhaka for Taurus (fixed) sign lagna.

ü SUN is occupant of 12 th bhava.

ü Mars aspecting 12 th and Sun aspecting 7 th .

ü Mars and Sun are also connected to 6 th bhava through Ketu who is occupant of 10 th .

ü This indicates the death of the native due to accident.

Principl for: Longevity - span of life – Lagna sub lord

if connected to first group i.e., 1/5/9 bhavas is long life – If connected to 2 nd group i.e., 6/8/12 bhavas -short life- if connected to both groups a medium life.

long life – If connected to 2 n d group i.e., 6/8/12 bhavas -short life- if
long life – If connected to 2 n d group i.e., 6/8/12 bhavas -short life- if

In the chart referred above

Lagna sub lord Jupiter is connected to both the groups i.e., 1-5-9 and 6-8-12.

ñ

1 st - Through Ketu (pco); 5 th - as pcbl; 9 th -through Ketu (pcbl) and

6 th -through Ketu (occupant); 8 th - bhava lord; 12 th - aspect on Mars Bhava lord. As Jupiter is connected to both groups medium life is granted.

ñ

But, Native died in 9 th year which is considered as in the span of short life.

Thus, the following formula is applicable in the case understudy--

ü If Star lord of 1 st cusp sub lord – connected to badhaka sthana / maraka sthana the life will be short and not for many years.

Following are the observations in the given chart:

The 1 st cusp sub lord Jupiter is in the star and sub of Mercury – who is lord of 2 nd and is Maraka- for Taurus lagna. Added to this Mercury is aspected by exalted Mars lord of 7 th – another maraka lord.- for Taurus lagna. Mercury is conjoined with Venus and is in Venus star – hence death occurred in the sub- period of Venus in the Mahardasa of Saturn – Saturn is 9 th lord i.e., badhaka lord for fixed sign -Taurus lagna. 1 st cusp sub lord Jupiter -has also become malefic with connection to maraka sthana i.e., as 2 nd as occupant and as bhava lord of 8 th bhava a dushthana.

Jupiter with 8 th lord ship

(a functional malefic) has 5 th aspect on 7 th bhava a maraka

sthana Jupiter has become benefic with 11 th bhava lordship and as star lord of Moon. With Jupiter aspect on Moon and 11 th bhava native survived during the Jupiter dasa i.e., commencing at the birth time. But Jupiter dasa was only for about 7 months

Om Sri Gurubhyo namaha :: Om Sri Ganesaya namaha

Native died on 31 st jan.2011-at 9 th year of age -during the Saturn x Venus x Venus x Saturn –

Natal and transit positions of dasa, bhukti lords are as follows.

ñ Saturn dasa is Second mahardasa from birth time. –

ñ Saturn dasa lord -in birth chart - is the lord of badhaka sthan ( i.e., 9 th lord for Taurus lagna ) and Saturn is occupant of 1 st bhava (lagna is weak); Pco of 9 th and bhava lord of 9 th and 10 th

ñ Saturn is in the star of Mars – who is 7 th and 12 th lord and occupant of 9 th a badhaka sthana.

ñ At the time of accident (25 th jan.) and at death time (31 st jan) transit Saturn was in Moon star – Sun sub – In birth chart Moon is 3 rd Bhava lord and in the star of 8 th lord Jupiter - Saturn connection with 3 rd and 8 th is indicating death due to accident.

ñ Transit Saturn in the sub lord Sun who is connected to 12 th as occupant in birth chart.

ñ Moreover, transit Saturn started retardation on 27 th Jan 2011 i.e., in between the date of accident and date of death – while the boy was in Coma due to accident.

ñ Venus is bhukti lord –In birth chart - Venus is 1 st and 6 th lord - 6 th is dusthana – Venus is in conjunction with Mercury - 2 nd (maraka) lord and both are aspected by Mars 12 th and 7 th lord Mars (4 th aspect):: Venus and Mercury conjunction is also aspected by Jupiter (8 th lord) with 9 th aspect.

ñ At the time of accident and at death time the Transit Venus was in 7 th bhava –as maraca sthana from lagna. At the time of accident Transit Venus was in scorpio in the star of Mercury (2 nd lord maraca lord in natal chart) and at the time of death transit venus was in Ketu star – 6 th occupant in natal chart and Ketu also represent Sun who is occupant of 12 th in birth chart.

Below is the analysis in a tabular form:

A brief Note on Retro Planets

{Contents :Introduction- Retrograde frequency of Planets- Retro Planet as Karmic indicator- Influence of Retro Planet on Nerve centers - chakras- in human body- Astrological mode of Study of Retro Planets- Analyzing Birth charts with and without retro planets- Effects of Retro Planets in birth charts- Effects of retro planets from different ascendants- Suggestions to be given to natives- Example of birth charts with retro planets - References in brief. }

INTRODUCTION: Horoscopes are drawn and analyzed on the basis of astronomical speed of planets. Some horoscopes indicate “Retro Planet” if the planet is going back. In real

cosmic setup no planet moves “backward” or even “slow down” in its orbit. So retrogression

is termed as an “apparent” phenomenon.

Retrograde-station-direct cycles are essentially illusions from Earth’s point of view. This is because the Earth is also orbiting around Sun with a different speed. Men on Earth do not feel the speed of Earth and feels that other planet is going back.

A retro planet is considered as away from Sun than in its normal times and so less combust.

With this low combustion the retro planet becomes more independent and their effect on Earth is more intensive. As per classical theories. “vakri balopetha” is the normal dictum.

In mathematical part - in arriving at “Shabala” and the “Avastas” of planets motional strength

(Chesta bala), Powerful motion (Saktaavasta) and accelerated movement (bheetaavasta) of

planets are calculated.

Coming to the predictive part, the impact of a retro planet is considered as different from that of its normal times. Predictive theories differed in giving importance to the retro position of planets. However, the study of retro planets is useful to know the native’s past karma influence if his birth chart has any retro planet(s). Study of a retro planet is, in fact, revealing valid information on the past karmic influence of the native.

Retrograde frequency of Planets: Following is the frequency of planets “retro” movements:

Sun and Moon never seen on retro motion. Rahu and ketu - being points of intersection are always seen on reverse motion in the horoscope.

Misunderstandings

Retro Planet - A Karmic indicator: Study of retrograde planets as a KARMIC indicator is based on its influence on native’s body and consciousness. Human body is composed of five elements (pancha bhutas). Native’s consciousness is developed through the nerve centers i.e, Chakras (nerve centers) and on body’s sense organs (Jnanendriyas and Karmendriyas). Sahsrara and Ajna chakras are under the influence of Sun and Moon. Other chakras are under the influence of other five planets as detailed below.

Retro Planet influence on Chakras-Retrograde Planets influence the primary structure of the human consciousness and its relationship with its human life. By blocking the CHAKRAS and complicating the Pancha bhutas, they create disconnection and imbalances, inability to control the senses. An individual has to understand their retrograde planets and nurture them to bring back to harmony. The following is an indication of the Planets and their connection to chakras and elements.
