Dear Pankaj,

With Mars as the AK, in Navamsa placed in Leo.
12th from AK is Cancer - no planets placed in there - so take the lord Moon.

So your Ishta Devata would be Lord Sri Krishna.

Hi Shrikanth,

Thanks for your reply.
Can you please clarify me on one thing..?
On what basis my AK is Mars..I mean how do we know abt it ?
Also, Lord of cancer ( Moon )..ishta devata can be Lord Krishna/Shiva..
or only Lord Krishna..?
Also..what would be my dharma devata then..?

Regards,
Pankaj

Dear Pankaj,

Atmakaraka is the planet that is most traversed in a rasi within the chart - one which has the maximum longitude for clockwise moving planets or minimum longitude for anticlockwise moving planets (like Rahu).

Which planets signify which Ishta Devata is defined in the Brihat Parasara hora sastra - Using that Moon associates with Krishna.
We start by seeing the planets in the 12th from AK - if no planets then take the lord.

Dharma Devata is 9th from AK - same way planets in the 9th from AK or else 9th lord.

Dear Shiva,

If you are a hanuman devotee..it is better to continue with that.Please dont meddle with it mid way.it all depends on how you establish a communion with the deity you worship.Whom you worship does not matter in the final analysis,but just your love and surrender does.

Ramanan

Isn't Isht Devta the lord of the 5th house in the lagna chart?
For those who believe no explanation is necessary, for those who refuse....none will suffice

The 12th from the Karakamsa determines the "Istha Devata". The 12th house from the karakamsa is called the "Jivanmuktamsa". This is the house signifying the emancipation of the soul and we have to examine this house in order to find one's Ishta Devata. If there is a graha in the Jivanmuktamsa, it signifies the Devata. If there are more grahas than one, we choose the strongest. If there is no graha in the Jivanmuktamsa, we can see whether any Grahas are aspecting the 12th. If no Grahas aspect it, we can take the 12th Lord as Ishta Devata. Below are the presiding deities for each planet who will be your Ishta Devata as per your Horoscope.

Sun-- Vishnu/Rama/Shiva
Moon-- Krishna/Shiva/Parvati
Mars-- Hanuman/Subramanya/Sri Narasimha
Mer-- Vishnu
Jup-- Vishnu/Sri Vamana/Dattatreya/Sai Baba
Ven-- Maha Lakshmi/Parashurama/Maa Gouri
Sat-- Shani Dev/Hanuman/Kurma/Shiva/Vishnu
Rahu—Maa Durga/Varaha
Ketu-- Ganesh/Matasya

Lets help ourselves.

God bless

Neeraj ji

In Rasi chart my AK is in Parivartana with my BK. Will this influence the identification of Ishta devata in any way?
