Hi

Note that whether (1) or (2) above, as in all dasa systems (even Vimsottari), it may be the dictum (yoga) may not fructify during the current lifetime of the individual.

Hi

Yet another way is to use the Jaimini dasa system itself. But the one uses by K N Rao is his own version of 7 temporal significators. The articles uses a Jamini dasa system of 8 temporal significators. So this way of using K N Rao's Jaimini system to see where the dicta flourish in a person's life would be problematic, so we are still leave with either pursuing option (1) or option (2).

Hi

Also note that even if the dasa period does not come to the individual whether (1) or (2) above to fructify the yoga, the fact that the individual has the yoga means the effect is always there, operating continuously throughout the lifetime of the individual in the background. We know this for a fact for small yogas like planets in Bhavas, signs or gaining aspects from which planets etc. In fact one classic mentioned that Dhana Yogas and Raja Yogas also has the same characteristic as the small yogas, operating continuously throughout the lifetime of the individual, even if the approrpaite dasa does not come in the lifetime of the individual.

Hi

Another point about this classic is that although it uses the Jaimini Dasa system, it uses MORE of PARASARA ASPECTS like 5th and 9th of Jupiter etc.

This is the only time when a classic on Jaimini turns into using Parasara Aspect.

To keep readers from suspense no longer, please read the article in Saptarishis website the title of the article being Jataka Rajeeyam Part 1.

I have decided not to put it as a separate post but going through some of the important and enlightening dicta from that article in this thread itself using my chart as an example.

Hi

While discussing Jataka Rajeeyam, I will introduce to readers another concept using specialised planetary significations. The gist of it is like this.

Take a house (call it Bhava A) from Lagna (whether Rasi chart, D11, D9 or D60 or any divisional chart). There should be a functional ruler. See where the functional ruler is placed (call it Bhava B). Note also the specialised karaka for Bhava A (this is not the general karaka, for example if Bhava A is the 12th house, the general karaka is Saturn, but the specialised karaka for the 12th Bhava for Moksha is Ketu. This article Jataka Rajeeyam is going to introduce to readers a lot of specialised significators for each of the Bhavas most of which are novel and true in my chart and yet not found in traditional classics). See where this specialised karaka for Bhava A is placed (call it Bhava C).

See the relationship of Bhava B from Bhava C noting the specialised signification that is suggest using the karaka as the anchor point for the functional ruler.

To take an example, see my D11.

11th Bhava of D11 has Sagittarius there and Jupiter the ruler goes into the 12th Bhava. Jupiter is the functional ruler. According to Jataka Rajeeyam, Saturn is the specialised karaka for profits gain for the 11th Bhava (although the general karaka for the 11th Bhava is Jupiter). This Saturn of mine also sits in the 12th Bhava together with Jupiter. Now Jupiter (the Bhava of the functional ruler) is thus 1st from Saturn (the Bhava of the specialised karaka) and from past writings on specialised planetary significations, you know 1st to Saturn rules strength. Thus the profits gained in my life is stable and sizable (could be speculation, employment etc.)

Also because we are dealing a lot of such concepts here involving specialised significations (old ones propounded by me last time and new ones introduced by the article), the concept of Karako Bhavo does not apply as Karako Bhavo only applies when the GENERAL KARAKA FOR A BHAVA IS PLACED IN THAT BHAVA (WHETHER IN ITS OWN SIGN OR NOT).

Also note that all these new specialised planetary significations introduced by Jataka Rajeekam, we can start reading the usual way which I have introduced to readers all along. Taking the same example of profits gained for Saturn involving the 11th Bhava either by lordship, placed therein (ie. Saturn in 11th) or as a general karaka, we can also read of as 11th to Saturn where saturn can be placed anywhere in the chart and observe what is the sign there, the planets there and the corresponding ruler.

The article has said that in terms of effects, lordship is most powerful ie. the functional ruler, followed by placement of planet in that Bhava and then the specialised karaka. If the karaka is also the functional ruler or the karaka is also placed within that Bhava, the effect is also correspondingly intensified accordingly. Similarly if we use the method of taking planets as Ascendants and note the relevant Bhava, the effects as shown by that Bhava the effects are most powerful for the functional ruler of that Bhava, followed by any planets placed in that Bhava and then the specialised karaka (the planet we take as ascendant). But of course in this latter case, although the karaka can be the functional ruler of that Bhava, it cannot be sitting on that Bhava for the simple fact we are taking it as an Ascendant.

The concept as expounded in the 1st paragrah enables us to gain insight into complex relationships and the one which reader has to bear in mind. Reitering here again for emphasis.

Hi

A few more additional points before I go into Jataka Rajeeyam proper.

(1) Additional specialised planetary significations can also be found in the book on Hindu Omens where each planet in a specific Bhava is given a specialised planetary signification (like Jataka Rajeeyam). There is a separate table of meanings for the male nativity and for the female nativity. I am now typing halfway the list (I did not put it in table form) under the post "Oracles Based on Positons of Planets in a Natal Chart" for the male natiivity and have completed typing yet as of now. For example, the Oracle (Book on Hindu Omens) mentioned that Mars is the specialised planetary signification for Gains for the 11th Bhava. So Mars placed in 11th Bhava, Mars being the functional ruler of 11th Bhava, 11th to Mars the planets placed there as well as the functional ruler, Mars by itself etc. all stand for gains with the last one, Mars itself, the least powerful of course. So the Oracle does list some specialised planetary significations which cannot be found in anywhere else.

(2) Note that the general karaka and the general backup karaka always assume indirect lordship of ALL specialised planetary significations whether from BPHS, from my insight, from Jataka Rajeeyam or from the book on Hindu Omens. If the general karaka and the general backup karaka are placed in the Bhava for which they are karak, then Karako Bhavo applies including those specialised planetary significations for which they assume indirect lordship.

For example, in the above example I mention that Saturn is the specialised planetary signfication for Profits Gained when it is associated in some way with the 11th Bhava or not (the effect then is less) because it is the karaka for Profits Gained in the 11th Bhava. But Jupiter is both the General Karaka and the General Backup Karaka of the 11th Bhava so it also indirectly stands for Profits Gained (whether as functional ruler of 11th Bhava, placed there, or just being itself because it is a karaka).

If Jupiter is then placed in the 11th Bhava, Karako Bhavo would apply and the specialised planetary signification "Profits earned" would be affected because Jupiter assume indirect lordship of this. But if Saturn is placed in 11th Bhava, Karako Bhavo does not apply because saturn is only a specialised planetary significator and not a general significator or backup general significator.

Note also in the above example Jupiter being a natural benefic, Karako Bhavo tend to apply more for living beings which Jupiter stand for like elder brother and not so much for mundane matters or issues. But that has already been discussed in my post on Karako Bhavo.

Hi

Alright, without further ado let's get on with the analysis of Jataka Rajeeyam proper (JK for short). Note that in the above I have mentioned about the new karakas which JK has expounded. But JK has other dictums on other issues of natal chart analysis as well. So we will begin with how JK classifies natural benefics and natural malefics.

DICTUM (1) NATURAL BENEFICS AND NATURAL MALEFICS
---------------------------------------------------------------------

(A) Guru is complete benefic, Sukra is three-fourths benefic, Buddha is half benefic, Waning Moon is one fourth benefic, Bright Moon is equivalent to Guru. From Sukla Astami to Sukla Ekdasi (ie. bright half eighth day eleventh day) and from Krishna Panchami to astami (ie. dark half fifth day to eighth day) moon rays reduced by 25% and has with 75% rays equivalent to Sukra. Half Moon is half benefic ie. equivalent to Budha. Sani and Ketu are complete malefics. Kuja is 75% malefic. Ravi is 50% malefic. Waxing moon is 75% malefic. If Budha is combined with malefic, it is 75% malefic.

Comment : Note JK has delineated the degree of maleficity and beneficity of each planet. Waxing Moon is considered 75% malefic whereas BPHS considers waxing Moon as benefic. So which is which? Actually waxing Moon as I have earlier explained in my earlier post means opportunities arise in the environment to give the person the ability to forge ahead in life. Waning Moon not so. Thus BPHS is correct in that sense. But a waxing Moon means that the person is more opportunistic as well and hence less liable to form sincere friendships and in that sense his character is less desirable. So JK is right also.

(Later on JK would say that waning Moon is benefic, I will explain that later).

(B) Budha and Sukra combined with Purna Chandra are equivalent to Guru. Rahu always move in retrogade direction. Ravi placed in Dhanur Rasi is equivalent to Guru. Combust Chandra and debilitated Chandra is equivalent to Sani. Chandra aspected by Sani is equivalent to Sani. Scorpio is debilitation sign to Chandra. If Chandra is aspected by Sani and Guru, he is equivalent to Guru. Here waning Moon aspected by malefic planets is acting as benefic, but not as malefic. Chandra placed in Guru signs is equivalent to Guru. Though Chandra placed in Karkataka hvaing malefic relations gives malefic results only. Similarly Budha having malefic relations is malefic.

Comment : In my Rasi chart, Purna Chandra and Sukra are casting mutual aspects. It is not assoication but the effects are somewhat similar. My Ravi is placed in Dhanur Rasi in D9. My Chandra in Rasi is with Sani so my Chandra is like Sani (Chandra is not aspected by Guru, we take only Parasara aspects as I mentioned this classic uses Parasara spects but uses the Jaimini dasa system). Nevertheless my Chandra is still is a benefic because it is waning and aspected by a malefic as per the dictum stated.

(Later on in the article, it also mentioned that Rahu placed in Dhanur Rasi also behaves like Guru. I have that in D60. More on that later).

Note also that although my Moon is like a beneficial Sani in the Rasi Chart, in D9, D60 and D11 my Moon behaves like Jupiter since it is aspected by Jupiter by the 7th aspect in D9 and by the 5th aspect in D60 and D11.

Rasi Chart Moon shows I am cautious. D9, D11 and d60 the Moon shows I am quite at peace with myself inwardly and I like to enjoy nature and the good things in life.

Okay, now before I go into the karakas section of the article let me list down a few preliminaries.

I have already mentioned in a few posts before, that one way to glean a karaka specialised planetary signification, is to take the functional ruler of the house with respect to the Ascendant and see how that functional ruler is placed with respect to the karaka of that house ruled by that functional ruler. This is regarless whether there are any aspect between the functional ruler of that Bhava and the karaka of that Bhava. So like in my D11 which I mention, Sun is functional ruler of the 7th house of wife, and Sun is placed 12th to Venus, Venus being the karaka for wife. 12th to Venus denote prosperity. So I will get a prosperous wife. This is regardless whether there is any aspect between the Sun and Venus.

Note also, IN ADDITION WHICH I HAVE NOT MENTIONED AS YET, the functional ruler and the karaka would each be placed in a certain Bhava (house) itself. You can bring in this extra dimension to get an extra rich reading. For example my Venus is in the 4th Bhava and the Sun is in the 3rd Bhava. Sun is the karaka for decoration/dressing when related to the 3rd Bhava. Venus in the 4th Bhava represent mother for a daytime nativity. So you can say I have a prosperous wife, who most likely dresses motherly in a very fashionable way.

Above is just a special case where there is an aspect or no aspect between planets. The aritcle list down that in terms of effects, the fllowing list is ranked accordingly in ascending order :

(a) Functional ruler has the greatest effect
(b) This is followed by placement of planets.
(c) Karaka is the weakest.

I want to add in the dimension of aspect and dispositorship. Slotting in to the appropriate place in the list above so that the descending order of effects is maintained, the resulting list would look like this :

(a) Dispositorship has the greatest effect. Here is means the functional ruler dispositing the karaka and another planet representing a third issue into the picture OR the functional ruler is together with another planet representing a third issue and the funtional ruler disposits the karaka OR the karaka cum functional ruler dispositing the planet signifying a third issue OR the karaka cum functional ruler is together with a planet signifying a third issue. Note this third planet representing a third issue is tied to the Bhava where this third planet is placed.
(b) Functional ruler without dispositorship of the karaka aspecting a karaka OR Karaka aspecting a functional ruler without dispositorship of the karaka. (Here karaka means a specialised signification karaka and not the Bhava karaka - this would make the analysis richer).
(c) Like (b) but no aspects involved like Sun placed in 12th of Venus which I mentioned earlier.
(d) Add in the placement of planets of each of the pair of planets (karaka and the functional ruler) in (a) to (c) above for extra analysis. Remember I only mentioned in (a) about the placement of the third planet. I did not mention about the placement for the karaka and the functional ruler. Need to consider this also.
(e) If (a), (b) (c) and (d) does not exist in the chart ie. the functional ruler has no relationship with karaka of the specialised signification, then look at the karaka and the functional ruler separately - see where they are each placed, the aspects they receive etc. Then come up with a summary of the results from the two sub-scenarios obtained.

Is it complicated? Re-read again.

I will go through with the example in my chart to make it easier to understand.

Hi

Besides Rules (a) to (e) above, I would also be including aspects of planets onto empty houses into the analysis as well. This act as a background effect, fine tuning the analysis further, but I would not be enshrining it into a rule.

By the wya the rules are in DESCENDING order of effects rather than ascending. My error.

I have already changed it above.

Let me take a breather before I start.

All benefics when they are in the 3rd, the 6th and the 11th houses make the native happy in his early period,
Dear Khoo,

Does this mean, that the native would be unhappy in the later part of life? Why do we not take the 10th house into consideration also?

Also, how is this yoga different from the vasumati yoga (which states the same both from Lagna and from Moon)?

I have all my benefics in Upachaya (4 of them in the violent sign of Scorpio - I took Sun as a benefic, since he is only a mild malefic IMO) and two malefics in Upachaya (if 10th is also considered Upachaya).

Thanks

Hi Anxious:

I dont think the statement should be taken verbatim. It is a very general statement and then the position of other planets also needs to be checked and so on. I myself have all benefics in the third and so it does not work for me.
So u may need to see where the malefics are placed and how they are influencing the benefics by aspects or conjunction and so on, this is what I feel.

General statements work sometimes in some cases and not for others.
It is like saying south Indians are generally dark complexioned, it may be true to some extent but is not an abolute truth.

Another thing I want to mention for rule (A) on dispositorship, classics do allow for the rule "dispositor of the functional ruler". In the above, although I mention about dispositorship, I was actually referring to the functional ruler. So for rule (A) take the analysis down further, and analyse the dispositor of the functional ruler as well.

First, let me complete the karakas from the book of Hindu Omens first, found under Other Topics.

Another point to mention is that we can also make use of the Bhavat Bhavam principle and come up with karakas on our own. This is in addition to generla karakas by BPHS or specialised karakas by Jataka Rajeet Yam or Hindu Omens or BPHS (again).

Thus for example 7th is the 2nd to the 6th. Although Sun is the specialised karaka for victory over enemies when in any ways related to the 6th (remember based on my insight 6th to Sun rules good aministrator which means able to deal with obstructions and obstacles ie. enemies) but we also know from classics 7th stands for war and victory and being 2nd to the 6th is the maraka for the 6th which further shos 7th is something like a victory flag or a defeat flag.

If Sun is in any way then related to the 7th, the kind of war-like drums being sounded within the person is significant. This is an inference from basic axioms ie. is a corollary.

Hi

To divert a bit and some correction.

Earlier on I mention this article on Jataka Rajeeyam is based on a Jaimini Dasa. I mention there are 2 ways to use it.

(1) Use the Jaimini Dasa as recommended by the article but use K N Rao's 7 chara karaka scheme.

(2) Use Vimsottari Dasa and this Jaimini Dasa to corroborate what is predicted from the vimsottari dasa.

Note
------

(1) is still correct. But make sure you use the correct Jaimini dasa - I am not an expert in Jamini and am only cognizant on 1 or 2 dasa systems in Jaimini and the article did not pinpoint exactly what is the Jaimini dasa system they are using.

(2) is incorrect. When K N Rao says to use another dasa system to corroborate Vimsottari Dasa, he is not referring to a dasa system by Jaimini but by Parasara which is not Jaimini I believe.

Nevertheless for (2), we can still use the Vimsottari dasa system (with or without corrboaration from a second dasa system of Parasara and non-Jaimini) and the dictum expounded in the article should still aplly because PLANETS RULE SIGNS. So if they talk about a Rasi Dasa, just take it more or less it is the planet ruling the sign in the Vimsottari dasa system.

In addition, all dictum expounded in this article is useful for natal chart analysis, even if we are not taking predictions into account as mentioned earlier before this post.

Again to sidetrack a bit on the expounding of karakas from Jataka Rajeeyam, I want to explain a sloaka from Jataka Rajeeyam which gives an insight how divisional charts can be made used of.

The sloaka is :

If Ravi happened to be panchamadhipati and placed there the native will be intelligent and having Pitrusoukhya, similarly 9th also to be taken into consideration.

My father currently is going to be 81 years old. And I have this Yoga in my D10! Sun is in Leo in the 5th Bhava.

Now we know D10 is used to chart our career in detail eg. once you get a job.

But look! D10 can be used to delineate certain 10th house matters because the 10th Bhava is the primary karya house for D10. I would not now say at this stage that D10 can chart ALL 10th House matters only some other than career matters. But it looks promising!

Hi

Actually all the specialised significations from the book on Hindu Omens and from Jataka Rajeeyam, one can also take it from the planet taken as Ascendant concerned.

For example in the book on Hindu Omens, they say 3rd to Mercury gives wealth (instead of writing as stated in BPHS). In Jataka Rajeeyam, 3rd to Mercury gives generation of voice (the neck).

So we can count 3rd from Mercury, taking Mercury as Ascendant and read the significations. This is in addition to the rules stated above where for each house from the Ascendant, we look at where Mercury is placed and the functional rulership of Mercury (and of course besides the karaka of Mercury itself).

Looks the combinations are exploding!!

Actually for the above concept which I just posted, it is just taking a different Ascendant.

But rules (a) to (e) plus the background rules which I have written beforehand still apply.

Okay, I think for the Jataka Rajeeyam Article on the significators for the various planets, you can read it yourself. I will not go into it.

Some significators mentioned were Jupiter related with 2nd for sweet speech, highly cultured demeanour, Jupiter related with 3rd for kitchenware/utensils, Venus related with 4th for mother for those born during day time, Saturn with 12th for trumpets/drums etc.

Thanks.

Hi Learned Members

For short posts and tips, I would still be posting on this thread.

Next insight ........

Now we know about specialised planetary significations. We also know we can get the same properties from the karakatwa of the Graha where the effects are weaker.

Now extending this principle ......

If the sign(s) ruled by this Graha coincides with some effects that are totally opposite to what the Graha karakatwa stand for, that property existing as the karakatwa in the Graha is further reduced.

For example, Jupiter rules social standing (in this example the karakatwa is strong because it is also a specialised signification 7th to Jupiter rules social standing and hence 7th to 7th ie. Jupiter itself also rules social standing) But if the signs where Jupiter rules ie. Pisces and Sagittarius falls under 10th to Rahu and 7th to Rahu (which is also a 10th to Rahu, 10th being 7th to the 7th), and these points to Rahu stand for bad reputation, Jupiter's karakatwa for social standing is considerably weakened.

To take another example if Jupiter as a karakatwa for wealth falls under the 12th to Saturn and Mercury, then Jupiter as a karakawa for wealth is weakened because 12th to Saturn signifies loss and 12th to Mercury signifies poverty. On the other hand if Jupiter falls under the 12th to Venus, then Jupiter as a karakatwa for wealth is enhanced, because 12th to Venus rules prosperity.

Hi

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

Some people from the West like Eastern culture and vice versa ie. people from the East who like Western culture. How can you roughly guage from a person's chart?

Sautrn, Moon and Venus are planets which have more affinity with Eastern culture. Saturn is digbala in the 7th house, and Moon and Venus in the 4th house. Eastern culture stresses on teamwork, tolerance, conservatism, the home and family, honesty, thinking that can be a bit clouded at times and yet because of Venus affinity with the 10th as indicated by some classical text, praise for brilliance in one's leadership and strategy as can be seen by Sun Tzu's Art of War etc.

Sun, Mars, Mercury and Jupiter are planets which have more affinity with Western culture. Sun and Mars are digbala in the 10th and Mercury and Jupiter in the 1st. Western culture stresses on individuality, honesty in one's actions ie. the process is emphasised as well as the outcome as can be seen by the judicial proceedings in the West, research, ability to speak out, career achievements, fieriness and to tell it like it is etc.

Now we know Shadbala deals with functional strength of a planet in a chart, Vimsopaka Bala is normally used when we consider divisional charts.

The best indicators to use to guage the general powerfulness of the planets as they stand alone would be then the Amsa Bala and the Ishta Phala (which measures the goodness of a planet in a person's chart ie. how beneficial it is).

Compare respectively the two groups of planets, one for Eastern culture and one for Western culture, and see which group is stronger. The wider the disparity in the difference in power of the two groups of planets via the above two indicators, the more you are likely to veer towards one culture rather than the other regardless of where you are born - in the Eastern or Western divide of the world.

it is interesting to note that since Jupiter comes under Western culture, all the Universities that we find today originated from the West. Also Moon and Venus stresses on soleproprietorships and partnershipts unlike the West which stresses on registered companies - a concept originated from Jupiter.

Mars in the West stress on roasting and grilling of food (even India which have hot food but they are curry like which has a large armount of water, Northern India with the dry curry is still a form of steaming with dry vapour). Mars also conduces to preparation of food at slaughtering time (the butcher) like sausages and goose liver. The Chines which prepare roast duck etc. requires more intensive cooking and done not near to butchering time ie. done away form the butchering site.

Hi

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

A retrogade planet is strong but do not often conform to the norms of society. How do we kow that from the evidence of astronomy?

The superior planets (ie. those planets further away from the Sun than Earth) are retrogade when they are furthest away from the Sun. The inferior planets (ie. those planets nearer to the Sun than Earth) are retrogade when the said planet comes between the Earth and the Sun blocking the Earth's view of the Sun.

The Sun represents the norms of society as set by the government - not those enshrined in laws like Jupiter nor those that are evolved by the masses themselves.

No wonder people with many retrogade planets in their chart are considered somewhat of an odd ball by the government. How it works out in individual charts depends on the placement of the retrogade planets themselves eg. are they in their own sign, are they with natural beenfics etc.

Re: Some Insights Not Found in Classics

I am now re-reading Yogis, Destiny and the Wheel of Time by K N Rao and he did mention that he does combine Parasara's dasa system (should be Vimsottari) with Jaimini Chara Dasa. He described this
technique in his book on Jaimini's Chara Dasa.

Jataka Rajeeyam's principles, however, may be using a different Jaimini dasa system altogether. Interested readers can scrutinise the article. If it is using a different Jaimini dasa system, like I mention earlier, then we can resort to Vimsottari with another dasa system by Parasari, and only those principles in that article that refer to planets and their rulerships and relatinships, we can forecast with some accuracy. Those referring to signs, we just only know that it exist in our chart, but not able to forecast when it will happen.

But scrutinise the article first.
