Hi

Back to pacakadi sambandha. I think I miss out a few delineations earlier on.

Let's state the various terms in pacakadi sambandha again.

1. पाचक/pācaka Digestor, The one who creates opportunity for the graha
2.बोधक/bodhaka Informer, The one who brings the opportunity in front of graha
3. कारक/kāraka Doer, The one who does the necessary task for the graha
4. वेधक/vedhaka Vedha, means knowledge if inimical it can block knowledge hence can cause hurdle.

Mars is bodhaka to the Moon involving the 9th Bhava. The adventuresome spirit of Mars brings the opportunity to the Moon to be indulge in flights of fancy. And to think big in a daring way.

Moon is bodhaka to Mars involving the 6th Bhava. The Moo's sense of things not right in the 6th Bhava energises Mars to put things right

Sun is vedhaka to the Moon involving the 3rd Bhava. Sun in 3rd can light up the mind in the doing of mundane tasks, making the mind tackle mundane tasks more effectively. The 3rd to Sun is also 2nd to 2nd of Sun which comes with practical knowledge.

The rest I believe I have covered earlier on.

Warmest Regards
Hock Leong

Much earlier on I talked about :

Moon is bodhaka to Saturn involving the 11th Bhava which I said that the mind brings opportunities to Saturn for work which results in riches. That is provided the mind is properly harnessed. Actually the 11th of Saturn also represent structures, roles and responsibilities. The mind (Moon) can also be harnessed to create such a framework in order so that Saturn can perform his work properly.

Saturn is karaka to the Moon involving the 11th Bhava which I said the experience gained from doing work is riches to the mind. Additionally now I want to mention that Saturn's orgnisational work in creating the framework of structures, roles and repsonsbilities also helps the mind (Moon) to further think of more deeper and eclectic structures so that the organisation can furtherprogress and leapfrog ahead of competitors (11th is the 6th of the 6th and 6th deals with competitors).

I reproduce here the pacakadi sambandha table over here again for easy reference.


पाचक/pācaka बोधक/bodhaka कारक/kāraka वेधक/vedhaka
Graha House Graha House Graha House Graha House
Sun Saturn 6 Mars 7 Jupiter 9 Venus 11
Moon Venus 7 Mars 9 Saturn 11 Sun 3
Mars Sun 2 Moon 6 Saturn 11 Mercury 12
Mercury Moon 2 Jupiter 4 Venus 5 Mars 3
Jupiter Saturn 6 Mars 5 Moon 7 Sun 12
Venus Moon 2 Mercury 6 Saturn 12 Sun 4
Saturn Venus 3 Moon 11 Jupiter 6 Mars 7

I completely lost you here. Would you be kind enough to explain this with an example ???

Hi Vedavalli

For example if you have Saturn in Gemini. Gemini acts like the 3rd Bhava. But 3rd is the 2nd of the 2nd. So Saturn in Gemini can be considered to have some effects of Sautrn in Taurus ie. it gives money, innter talents, good in the arts etc. The wealth it gives is less than in Taurus because 3rd is also the 8th of the 8th. So Saturn in Gemini has some effects of Saturn in Scorpio in giving things like insurance, patnership resources etc.

But note that where style signified by the signs is concerned, Saturn in Gemini only gives Geminian style and not a Taurean and Scorpion style. Styles are strictly under the jurisdiction of the signs and do not come under Bhavas.

To give a striking example of the concept I explained to Vedavalli above, consider Aires.

The style of Aires is always straight and to the point. That does not change. Also Aires stands for 1st Bhava matters, so they are intelligent, size up situations quickly and always think on their toes. But because 1st is the 7th to the 7th, they get on quite well people also. They can be diplomatic as well because 7th Bhava rules diplomacy. Their basic style is however Airean generally and it does not take much to ruffle their feathers as they believe in standing for their own rights.

Still Aires gets on well with others because of the 7th house connotation.

Hi

Some clarification.....

A waxing Moon is benefic and a waning Moon is malefic. This is as per BPHS. It means life opportunities coming your way or the lack of it as life progresses.

The progressed Moon at a point in time shows the particular situation you are in, how good or bad, with respect to what you have expereinced so far (the sum cumulation of the previous experience) which results in your current situation.

The bright or dark Moon represents the strength of the Moon. A very bright Moon and a very dark Moon means the strength of the Moon is heightened. Bright Moon itself signifies someone able to think positively and seize opportunities coming his way. Hence a bright and waxing Moon is one of the best.

On the other hand a dark Moon itself signifies who is more cautious which if excessive can turn negative, and lack opportunities slip by.

A very bright Moon and a very dark Moon would thus signifies the exaggerated characteristics of a bright Moon and the exaggerated characteristics of a dark Moon respectively.

Then how to interpret a waning Moon whose maleficity has been cancelled.

One way is for the waning Moon to be aspected by natural benefics. It means life opportunities created by others to help the individual. Why not natural malefics? Because natural malefics only absorts other planet's energies, it never gives.

The other way is for the waning Moon to be disposited and aspected by the same natural malefic. This means the people represented by that natural malefic is taking care of the individual. This is the only time when the natural malefic helps because blood (dispositor) is thicker than water (non-dispositor). The aspect, in addition to being dispositor, of the natural malefic must also be there to show the explicit help given.

Hi

Next very good insight .....

I have alredy conversed with Nina in one of the past posts (amongst in addition what I have written on this topic) to say that :

When a planet transits, to interpret the world events, always see the planet in its light of the Tropical Sign where it is placed and the Sidereal Sign where it is placed. The Tropical Sign is something manifested on top of the thing denoted by the Sidereal Sign.

So for example now Pluto in Tropical Capricorn but Sidereal Sagittarius, it shows government changes (external) on foundational ethical issues (internal) represented by Tropical Capricorn and Sidreal Sagittarius respectively.

That is for transits.

How about for individual charts? Now we already know that signs are Bhavas. So for a chart where there is a planet in its sign, there are actually three componets :

(1) The Sidreal Sign which in this forum we normally read in the Vedic Chart
(2) The Tropical Sign which is obtained by adding 22 plus degrees to 24 plus degrees depending when you were born (if you are very old it could even be adding 21 plus degrees only)
(3) The Sidereal Sign before the one with the planet in question. This is because the 2nd Bhava to a Bhava (call it Bhava A) also is something like Bhava A. So by the same token, the sidereal sign that you have planet posited in, is in some ways mirroring the sidereal sign just before the sign which you have a planet.

Let me just give you an example that incorporates all (1) to (3) points above.

I have Saturn, Ketu and the Moon in Capricorn in the Vedic chart, what you all know normally about me. This is Point (1). This is my internal character - I am a hardworking, persevering Capricorn. Inwardly also a nice guy in the sense that I have respect of olders folks and all established rules and structures in society.

Point (2) is that in Tropical signs I have Saturn, Ketu and the Moon in Aquarius. Outwardly I usually think out of the box and quite creative (Tropical Aquarius is opposite Tropical Leo). I like to sometimes change my routine somewhat so as to make my work more interesting. I also like speculative ventures.

Point (3) is that my Sidreal Capricorn is 2nd to Sidereal Sagittarius. So I have characteristics of Sidreal Sagittarius making me inwardly I like to travel round the world and experience different cultures and I steer my life based on some basic philosophy. I like to see the big picture.

If my Saturn, Ketu and Moon had been placed in very early sidreal Capricorn like after 6-7 degrees, then Point (1) I would still have Sidreal Capricorn
Point (2) I would have Tropical Capricron instead of Tropical Aquarius
Point (3) I would still have Sidreal Sagittarius

As it stands, all my Points (1), (2) and (3) are all different signs.

Hi

Next insight.......

Now we know from D24, the 12th house is the house of unlearning with Mercury as its significator (Jupiter would be for knowledge, wisddom etc. also for the 12th house, Mercury for 12th also signififies initiation etc. - refer to the post under the Section on Divisional Charts).

In fact if we use the specialised planetary signification, the 12th to Mercury signifies authorship. You can do writing as a living if 3rd to Mercury or 5th (3rd to 3rd) of Mercury coincides with money significations like 11th to Jupiter signifying income, but unless your 12th to Mercury is strong, your writing would not have much quality - authorship encompasses everything in writing a book including planning the pace of the book, how to project your ideas, what target audience to aim at etc.

In above post, all we have to see in D-24?

If you are talking about D-24 then in my case, 12th to mercury is libra and its lord exalted placed in 9th house with jupiter. Also mercury where it is placed (scorpio), its lord exalted in 7th house. What should i infer this planetary situation?

Thanks khoo,

No, in the above post where I talk about specialised planetary signification it is more on one of the overall charts of D1, D9, D60 and D11.

If you talk about D24, it is more of the 12th Bhava itself. But I guess there is no harm studying 12th to Mercury in D24 as well but usually the focus is on the 12th Bhava. Just like in Navamsa, if we want see the attributes of your mate you look at the 7th or 1st Bhava (1st is the 7th of the 7th) but you can also see it from 7th to Venus.

So your question should focus on the 12th Bhava in D24 or the 12th to Mercury of D1 or D11 (my favourite overall chart).

Hi

One way to distinguish the effects from D1, D9, D60 on the one hand and D11 on the other is this :

If you are experiencing a trinal lord dasa in the 1st group but it is not a trinal lord in D11, the process is smooth sailing but the overall outcome can be disappointing or even fraught with difficulties, depending on the houses that planet rules in D11 including the aspects it receives, the planets it associates with etc.

On the other hand if the planet is a non-trinal lord in the 1st group but it is a trinal lord in D11, the outcomeis good but the process of getting there is more challenging.

If the planet is both a trinal lord in the 1st group and D11, both process and goal are in tandem and you find it relatively easy to reach your objectives.

If the planet is NEITHER atrinal lord in the 1st group nor D11, then excepct some VERY DISAPPOINTING moments in your life.

Note the above are just general principles. WHY? For example take the 2nd case there the planet is a non-trinal lord in the 1st but it is a trinal lord in D11. It could be that even if that is so, in the 1st group, the planet happens to satisfy one other principle of Hora Nirnaya Sangraham that makes the non-trinal lordship of that planet in D1, D9 and ^60 prove beneficial, for example by associating with a trinal lord or gets strong aspect from a trinal lord in its own sign one way ETC. All these possible cases I have already explored with you in the thread for Hora Nirnanya Sangraham. Read that.

I believe God has ordained me to gain some exceptional insights in Vedic Astrology like the recent unearth of the article of the classic Hora Nirnanya Sangraham at this juncture of time, and also Sanjay Rath's construction of the chart D11, and even Shilpa's remark about one has to be experiencing the mundane affairs of D11 to the fullest before we can be prepared to meet Moksha in the 12th Bhava. Each of them MAY NOT HAVE INTENTED for these synthesis of theories, but unexpectedly it has fallen on me to gain the insight, and present all these to the readers.

Hi

Some enlightenment on my part ..........

Mercury and Moon should always be considered as natural benefics in divisional charts other than the Rasi chart. Why?

If you have seen my post on the Transit of Saturn in divisional charts, transits in divisional charts jump signs simply because the divisional chart is composed of various slices of the Rasi Chart patched up in a quilt-like fashion. Hence the space and time of divional chart, is not the time and space in the usual sense of the term applicable to the Rasi Chart.

Thus the concept of waxing and waning of the Moon cannot be gleaned from seeing the position of the Moon with respect to the Sun. Neither whether the Moon is bright or drak. Similarly for Mercury, even if he associates with natural malefics like Mars, saturn or the Sun, he may not assoicating with them in the rasi Chart meaning he is actually not close to them.

Thus fo rthe Moon and Mercury in divisonal charts other than the Rasi Chart is given natural benefic status. This is basically their inherent character. This position is maintaine by Iyers a famous Vedic Astrologer.

I used to follow this postion and then I changed my mind. Now I am reverting back to the original position after writing the post on the Transit of Saturn.

Thus by the same logic, combusion and planetary war, we only read it at the Rasi chart level.

The only thing that can be read from the divisonal chart is that a natural benefic is found in a Bhava, then that Bhava's strength would be enhanced considerably or if a natural malefic is found in a Bhava, the Bhava's strength is reduced unless that natural malefic is the lord of that Bhava (note strength does not equal to beneficity although natural benefics do provide for beneficity but not natural malefics whether lord or not).

Divisonal charts should all emanate from the Rasi chart as well. And because of that, the temporal significators should be also from the Rasi chart as these are then used in Navamsa for readings of Karakamsa etc. as detailed in Jaimini Sutras.

The concept of how natural benefics and natural malefics interact continue to be applicable in divisional charts as expounded in Hora Nirnaya Sangraham.

We already know that we can use Nakshatras and signs in divisonal charts. We also can usel Arduahas although Arudhas should be more powerful in the Rasi as Rasi governs the physical level and others observe us at the physical level. Mrityu Bhagas which only define specific degrees of signs in each planets should be applicable to divisonal charts. How about computation of the various Lagnas? Based on classics they are to be calculated in the Rasi chart (although some steps of the calculation for some Lagnas in some classical texts, the Navamsa sign is referenced).

Hi

Something which I read in the 90s which I further enhanced and adapt for this forum :

In Tropical Astrology the cycle between Neptune and Pluto governs the Zeitgeist of the society at that time. Now since Neputne takes quite a long time to cycle round Pluto, what is the spirit of the world right at this moment? Mabye a little trip down memory lane.

Neptune Conjunct Pluto in 1892. The Victorian Age was breaking down and the dawn of the New Age appears. Around this time, Paris was having an exhibition showcasing the marvels of new technology, including missile technology for submarine warfare which the Germans developed to the hilt in the 1920s.

Throughout the 20s and 30s, Neptune was slightly ahead Pluto. We have to pass through the abyss before reaching the other side of the enbankment.

In the 40s Neptune sextile Pluto. Whenever Neptune comes ahead of Pluto by two signs, it denotes the standard of living goes up. It is not like during the Victorian age in the 19th century where Pluto was ahead of Neptune. Pluto however entered Leo the fire sign, and the atomic bomb was built and dropped. Pluto entering Pushya the Nakshatra in Vedic Astrology at this time, the New Deal was given to Europe and people start spending in the 50s, reaching its peak in the 60s where the term consumerism was coined.

Neptune would be sextiling Pluto until 2040. This is an unusual long period for this sextile and we are fortunate. The arts would flourish and so would be the good things in life. New vistas would open up for human kind and not just IT but also new forms of thought in government, business, spiritualism and of course our relationship with God.

Hi

Some insight .........

In a previous post I list each pair of planets which really render each other weak. They are enemies but more than that, their basic characteristics is simply opposite to each other. Thus each of the pair of the planets would be rendered particularly weak and their influence on each other is hardly there even if they aspect each other or are found to be associating in a chart.

How this pair of planets are derived is that :

(1) Firstly the planet in the pair are usually enemies. The exception is Mars and Venus.

(2) Secondly the other planet in the pair does not rule the 3rd nor the 11th of the sign from the sign of the planet being considered.

So for example the following are the pairs formed :

Mars-Venus
Mercury-Jupiter
Saturn-Sun
Saturn-Moon

Thus Venus and Jupiter do not form a pair because Jupiter rules Pisces which is the 11th to the sign Taurus which Venus rules. Similarly Jupiter rules Sagittarius which is the 3rd to the sign Libra which Venus rules.

Why the special consideration 3rd and 11th?

3rd to a Sign A is the Sign B that promotes the agenda of Sign A. The signs may be ruled by lords that are enemeies but the fact that there is such a relationship means the enmity can sometimes work to good effects.

11th to a Sgin A is the Sign B that gives gains to Sign A. They may be ruled by lords which are enemies but the fact that one sign gives gains to the other shows the enmity sometimes can give a good outcome.

Now we come to the specialised planetary signification. Take any planet A (excluding nodes for this discussion), work out its specialised planetary signification by counting Bhavas from the Bhava where the said planet A is placed. If the Bhava that is landed counting from where the said planet A is placed is posited the planet B where planet A and planet B forms a pair as defined above OR if the sign on that Bhava so landed has a sign overlaying it that is ruled a planet B where planet A and planet B forms a pair defined above, then predict the specialised planetary signification is going to be redered very weak. ANY OTHER PLANET other planet A or planet B posited in that landed Bhava would render the dictum correspondingly weaker. The more planets there are in that landed Bhava other than planet A or planet B, the effect expounded by this dictum would be rendered weaker to a higher degree accordingly.

Take my D11 as example.

6th to Mars has Venus in Taurus. 6th to Mars rule enemies. It renders the enemies weak. 6th to Mars also denote someone good in putting things in order. That is rendered weak also, although Venus itself is a karakatwa for ordering things as well but the way Venus order things ie. its approach is different from that of Mars.

11th to Mars denoting revolution has Libra which Venus rules. So again my revolutionary instincts is less strong. I usually prefer the tried and tested methods.

The above two cases result because Mars-Venus forms a pair.

Similarly 8th to Venus rules your attractiveness and I have Mars there. I am usually not somebody which others would want as a first choice if they need some companisonship.

7th to Venus rules sexuality and again the sign Scorpio which is ruled by Mars is there. I usually prefer bachelorhood.

12th to Venus has Aires which again is ruled by Mars. But here the prosperity is not lessened because IN ADDITION to the factor of Mars-Venus linkage, Sun is there so it overrides the dictum in this post somewhat.

So go through your chart to work out the pairs of planets and usuing specialised planetary significations, and you may realise why you behave as you do. Try D11 for a change the chart of final outcomes instead of D1, D9 and D60.

Hi

A very good insight ...........

The FASTEST way to guage whether a person will be beneficial to you in a long term relationship whether as friends, business partner, colleague, spouse etc and a VERY DETAILED AND ACCURATE MEAUREMENT is the following :

Take the person's chart and find out where all his planets are placed including Uranus (rules Sidereal Aquarius), Neptune (rules Sidereal Pisces) and Pluto (rules Sidereal Scorpio).

Superimpose his planets' positions onto your chart.

If those planets that fall in the KENDRA of your chart are those that rule trinal bhavas of your chart, then the person is good for you in terms of long term (or even short term) relationship.

Another way is that if the person's nodes fall onto one of your planet, that person will intensify that planet's characteristics in your life. So if that planet is a trinal lord in your chart, the good effects would also occur.

Hi

An insight that is electrifying ..............

I have already mentioned the non-affinity between Mars and Venus, between sun/Moon and Saturn, between Mercury and Jupiter.

Each planet of each of pair rules the OPPOSITE SIGN OF THE SIGN WHICH THE OTHER PLANET RULES.

Thus Moon rules Cancer but Saturn rules Capricorn, the opposite sign. Venus rules Libra but Mars rules Aires, the opposite sign, Venus rules Taurus but Mars rules the opposite sign Scorpio ETC.

Now what happens if Venus is placed in a sign of Mars for example? That is to say what if a planet is placed in a sign where it has non-affinity? Of course we know that it will be weak based on what was previously expounded. In Tropical Astrology there is a name for this and it is called the planet's DETRIMENT. So Mercury is detriment in Sagittarius, Jupiter is detriment in Virgo etc. In this case each is also in a its enemy's sign. In the case of Mars and Venus, Mars in Libra is in its detriment, Venus in Aires is in its detriment, Mars in Taurus is in its detriemetn and Venus in Scorpio is in its detriement etc. But they are NOT in enemy's sign. So these concepts are DIFFERENT. Just want to stress that clearly.

What information can we gleaned when a planet is in its detriment ie. opposite to the sign for which it rules?

The concept is sueful when we try to decide the planet's specialised signification, more precisely if the 7th or to the 1st of a planet means something.

Take the Sun. 7th to Sun denotes democracy. 1st to Sun denotes body.

Sun placed in its detriment sign of Aquarius (opposite Leo) shows that the person's body is not that powerful ie. his physique is nothing to gloat at. The interesting part is the 7th to Sun. 7th to Sun is Leo which the Sun rules and since that is powerful, the attribute of democracy is very strong within the person with Sun in Aquarius. But then the dispositor of Leo, Sun itself, goes into Aquarius the sign of its detriment. Thus even though the person really respects and tries to promote democracy, the outcome is usually not successful.

Thus when a planet is placed in its detriment sign, the following occur :

(1) The specialised planetary signification, 1st to that planet, if any, is rendered weak.

(2) The specialised planetary signification, 7th to that planet, if any, appears strong but the outcome is usually disappointing.

To take another example Mercury in Pisces denotes 7th to Mercury is Virgo which is ruled by Mercury means the person has strong inclination to do business because 7th to Mercury is Virgo which is a sign where Mercury rules. But since the dispositor of Virgo goes to Pisces (Mercury placed there), he is best advised to STAY OUT of business as the venture would most likely not be successful.

Same with Venus in Aires. They are usually attracted towards a mate but the outcome is usually disappointing.

You can look at the 5th and the 8th and also the 9th because 9th is the 5th of the 5th.

8th deals with speculation involving huge amounts and often conduces to losses.

5th is the main speculation house and is speculation with intelligence.

9th is speculation with great foresight whcih may involve going into a totally new business venture in overseas with huge payoffs.

11th to Rahu deals with inrodinate gains and 8th to Jupiter as well. 11th to Rahu gives speculative gains other than stocks and shares and 2nd to Mercury gives speculation in stocks and shares. If 2nd to Mercury coincides with 11th to rahu or 8th to Jupiter (especially the former), gains can be expected.

Fire signs or fire planets in 5th or 9th well aspected especially if Jupiter is involved as the mutual trines would be emphasised also gives to rise to speculative gains in stocks and shares (Bhavas involved can sometimes override the significations of planets). But presence of Mercury would make the effect more pronounced.

Hi

Next insight ....................

Rosseau believe that education cannot maketh a man. He was a French philosopher who believed that all men would always revert back to his basic ways regardless of the formal education that he is being given.

How does Vedic Astrology look at this?

4th house in Hindi Astrology rule basic education (the formal type) and 2nd house the informal education (the informal type) - the one you have when on your mother's lap. 1st house rules your basic innate personality.

2nd house to any house, call it house A, always support that house unless this 2nd house that is mentioned is very strong. 4th house to the house A always serve the said house A. In fact informal education is more important than formal education in changing a person's character and even then it is limited.

So it looks like Rosseau is right except for a few individuals (he did qualify this also I think) for example, the lord of the 1st house goes into the 4th house, then formal education can indeed change a person's character, but most of us are not born with this planetary configuration.

Hi

Once you go for higher studies, then it is a different proposition. Masters education, for example, is ruled by the 5th house which is the future of the 1st house. The person's character then have the liberty to change to that of the nature of the 5th house which can be good or bad depending on the planets there.

Hi

Then what about PhD education? It is governed by the 9th house which supports the 1st house. People who attain professorship tend to revert back to their basic innate personality. No wonder most of them have been touted by students and faculty members as someone who acts and behaves very true to their basic nature, meaning headstrong.

Hi

Form the book on Hindu Omens :

Ganesha, the Indian God of wisdom has the same qualities as Janus of the Latins. All the religous ceremonies, almost all the literary works and most of the affairs of importance of the pious Hindus begin with an invocation to Lord Ganesha. The following is an amulet for success. Here is how you go about it :

1. Ganesha being first of the Gods to be worshipped in any of the ceremonies, is considered to be the presiding deity of amulets as well.
2. Before writing or inscribing an amulet on a piece of paper or on some metal one should utter Shri Ganeshaya Namah (salutations to Lord Ganesha)
3. Due to non-availability of birch-paper, the diagrams may be inscribed on simple plain paper.
4. Where the name of a special deity is mentioned, it should also be saluted, but after the invocation to Ganesha.

The following amulet containing the mystic diagram of 20 should be written on a piece of birch-paper (or plain paper) and then put inside the cap, turban or a pocket. It will bring sure success to the wearer in all sorts of his endeavours.
Remember to draw the criss cross lines yourself with a outer perimeter of a square.

Hi

I would be coming up with another new post on another classic recently unearthed by Saptarishis Astrology. However, the dicta expounded there is based on one of the dasas used in the Jaimini System.

Now classics usually say Vimsottari Dasa should be used in our Kali Yuga age because the life span of the individual is normally 120 years as of now. So should we use the dicta that is meant for other dasa systems. There are two approaches to this problem currently in vogue.

(1) K N Rao has done extensive reasearch to show that other dasa systems also work provided it is used to verify the veracity of the Vimsottari dasa.

(2) The dictum should be true still because the yogas would fructify but we do not know when because we are using the Vimsottari dasa.

So whether (1) and (2) the dictum can still be used. In (1) we know when the dictum is going to be fructified. In (2) we do not know when, however.

Either weay, the dictum can still be very enlightening to us if it is applicable to our chart.

Stay tune for that post.

Warmest Regards
