I have tried to write something on Badhaka sign and Badhakesha, as taught by my Guru to me.
Every sign has a sign of obstruction called Badhaka Rasi and its lord is called Badhakesha. Here is the list of Badhaka sign and Badhakesha :
Rasi Badhaka Rasi Badhakesha
Aries Aquarius Rahu & Saturn
Taurus Capricorn Saturn
Gemini Sagittarius Jupiter
Cancer Taurus Venus
Leo Aries Mars
Virgo Pisces Jupiter
Libra Leo Sun
Scorpio Cancer Moon
Sagittarius Gemini Mercury
Capricorn Scorpio Ketu & Mars
Aquarius Libra Venus
Pisces Gemini Mercury
For Movable, Fixed & Dual signs the sign of obstruction/evil (badhaka) is the 11th, 9th & 7th house respectively and the badhakesha is the lord of the sign of obstruction/evil.
The 22nd Drekkana: Khara
The lord of the 22nd Drekkana is the Kharesa and can cause Badhaka effects i.e. can cause obstructions and activate the badhakesha and other evils.
Wrath of Deity:
If the Badhakesha in an adverse place and afflicted, and if a malefic planet is placed in 12th house from the badhakesha, the indications are that the worshipped image has been mutilated. This brings the wrath of the deity signified by the badhakesha. Depending on the malefic planet/Upagraha involved, the following can be inferred:
1. If Gulika/Rahu: Indicates a curse of the Serpent deity or a serpent having touched the image of the deity has made it very impure.
2. If Saturn: Pollution/Dirt on the image/ temple
3. If Mars: disputes/ bad management of worship/image/temple.
1. Depending on the placement of the Badhakesha,
a) If the Badhakesha is in Lagna and associates with evil planets, then it is the idol, which has been mutilated. If Mars aspects/joins Badhakesha: breaking idol, image or any sacred object associated with the deity. A fresh idol has to be installed in a temple. If Saturn, Gulika or Rahu associates pollution and dirt have made the idol impure. If Sun associates, then it is due to birds.
b) If the Badhakesha is in the fourth house, then the temple is either broken/dilapidated (Mars affliction)and needs repairs, or has been forgotten or unclean (Saturn/Rahu) and needs to be sanctified.
c) If the Badhakesha is in 2nd or 11th house, then the deity's wealth (inanimate object), mula (grains, trees, lands etc) or Jeeva (Men, animals etc) depending on the Lagna as being movable, fixed or dual if unoccupied. If a planet occupies Lagna, then Mercury and Jupiter signify Jeeva, Sun and Venus signify mula and the others (Moon, Saturn, Rahu & Mars) signify Dhatu. Similarly the stars reckoned from Aswini are in the order of Dhatu, Mula and Jeeva.
