Pub/illhed by R. Santhanam Associates
It is with great pleasure and mercy of Goddess Sarasvathi
and Nava Grahas that I am hereby able to place before my
esteemed readets, this rare jewel of Astrology .
. This is rather for the very first time that this work appears
in print with Sanskrit transliteration of the original slokas and
English translation. That way, many of the works brought out by
me are for the first-time for the pleasure of the English-knowing
public and this fact gives me some kind of inexplicable happiness.
Except Hora Sara ofPrithu Y asas, each and every work brought
forth by me enjoys this credit:
The present work may have been named as Jyotisharnaua
Nauanitam by some ancient scholars of mortal coil but the
9riginal contents are attributed to Lord Siva as taught to Devi
Parvati. This fact can be understood by the reader when he holds
the pulse of the instructions. There is some kind of authority arid
some kind of divine touch at every step. The level of intuition
exhibited in revealing the principles wili speak for themselves.
Apparently, this work is older than the oldest text-books on
astrology by Garga, Vasishta, Parasara etc.
On going through the work, the reader will surely feel that
most of the aphorisms found herein are coming to his knowledge
for the very flrst time and are not repetition as available in other
texts. Except for a negligible number of rules, the contents are
being known by us for the first time.
There are 670 slokas in this work distributed in flve chap-
ters in all.
The first chapter is a Miscellaneous one dealing with
preliminaries including Balarishta Yogas, their cancellation,
N akshatra Dosha, 27 special kinds of Graha Samayas and their
use. There is incomparable uniqueness even in these aphorisms.
A word on Graha Samaya may serve the purpose effectively.
Srunayas or Avasthas are many kinds. Sayanadi 12 Avasthas,
Deeptadi ten (nine according to authorities) Avasthas,
Baladi six Avasthas and so on and so forth. With our experience
becoming more and more intense and fruitful, we will not ignore
even the simple ones like Deepta. Each classification has its own
use in a specified context. All do not work in all circumstances
alike. It is like a store-house of household ingredients. Where
salt is needed, you cannot do away with sugar, and vice versa!
Thus, where one of the SayanadiAvasthas work, BaladiAvasthas
need not necess8.rily work. No Avastha is futile for that matter.
The astrologer should have Sookshma Buddhi(i.e. be brainy) and
not Manda Buddhi (not be a dunce) while using th!l various
implements of his workshop.
Then, each of the 27 Graha Samayas as discussed in our text
was also discussed in Sukra Nadi. These offer a great deal of
opportunities for wider use in horary astrology as well, apart
from natal horoscopes. Their beauty lies in that these are directly
linked to Vimsottari dasa. Thus, it seems to be imperative that
effects ofSamayas should be restricted to Vrmsottari dasa when
it comes to natal horoscopes. These Samaya effects should not be
jumbled up with Ashtottari, Y ogini, KCD etc.
(Graha Samayas or 27 Avasthas are linked to the 27
N akshatras. Sayanadi Avasthas are linked toN avainsas. Deeptadi
Avasthas are linked to visible planetary dignities. Baladi
Aavasthas are linked to degree zones. Thus various authorities
described various Avasthas. Naturally, the subtler one is always
better. Hence the Navamsa-based twelve Avasthas
assume a lot more importance in many contexts.)
I understand that each Samaya is again divided into six
different sub-states. Although I have known of their calcula-
tions, I am not able to lay my hands on the effects of six sub-states
for each S;1maya, I may know of it one day and hope to place such
information before my esteemed reader, nay my patron.
The second chapter keeps the reader glued to the text,
dealing with Bhava analysis in a charming manner. The way the
twelve houses have been covered is a solid proof of the work's
greatness. This is another most important chapter of this work.
Here, we lmd rich techniques in respect of each and every
house in a very enlightened manner. Various kinds ofyogas or
combinations are brought forth in many contexts. What happens
when two different planets join together, what is the role of their
activities in the nativity, who is the real Maraka or killer,
dangerous dasas for certain important Nakshatras of birth and
the like. This chapter is also a fertile land for deep studies.
The third chapter gives instructions on analysis of plan-
etary transits on our lives. The reader will specially stand to gain
by the elaborate notes given by me, after consulting a number of
rare and authoritative works.
Since my notes on ''Transits"' form a pivotal base for this
work, some explanations are necessary in this preface. Even a
minor planet like the Moon and Mercury may appear to be
granting major events of life, viz. marriage, death and acquisition
of a property. But one does not experience these so oftenly. An
intelligent reader should value the transit of Saturn as the most
important one, to start with, followed by that of Rahu/Ketu,
Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon in that order.
For each and every major event, a certain planet is in charge.
Without that planet's direct involvement, the minor planets
though indicative of an event will not that event.
Further, transit effects are to be ascertained in clear union with
the help of dasa periods in currency at a given time. If these two
factors do not coincide, then the transit event may not come to
surface in reality.
There are two more conditions, of. importance. One is
different kinds ofVedhas or obstacles to a transit planet. Once
this is ignored, we will be going in an utterly wrong direction. The
other one is use of Prastara and other Ash taka Vargas. These,
help us to fine-tune the possibilities to the nearest time period. I
have explained various kinds ofVedhas in the notes. It has not
however been thought necessary that I explain Ashtaka Varga
techniques here. These can be seen in a reliable form, the way
ancients wanted, in my English translation of Sambhu Hora
Prakasa, which is already available.
-The fourth chapter discusses some fine techniques of Ash
taka Varga. A study of some Raja Y ogas with the help of Ash taka
Varga could be said to be for the first time.
The fifth and concluding chapter enlists some important
combinations of interest.
Throughout the course of this translation, I have retained
my characteristic commitment to explain each and everything to
the reader and supply lucidly explanatory notes. This could be
of a great deal of assistance to all, as usual.
I have employed every special care to properly transliterate
the text in Sanskrit, and more special care to decipher the
meanings in English, and yet more special care to give suitable
guidelines aS and when required. I may have to some extent or
even to a great extent failed in my task and may not have been
an apt person for this great work. This may be an onerous burden
for my weak shoulders. Hence the reader will forgive me for my
lapses and insufficiencies, if any, and accept only such portions
which are logical and correct, and reject the rest that are
meaningless and erroneous to his mind. I know that all my
readers are more intelligent than e
Of one thing, fm quite confident with this work. It will
convince evety reader of the need to have many more wonderful
and enlighterung techniques as uniquely laid down ih the present
work, for rather the first time.
It is as a result of this firm conviction of mine that in
succession of this. work, the reader will soon have an English
translation from us of Hora Ratnam of Balabhadra, the most
elaborate and voluminous classical text, of its kind, on predictive
astrology. This is again for the first time in English language.
I shall only be glad if the reader finds the present work as
one giving real satisfaction.

tell me of the nectar (i.e. essence) of the Jyotisharnava (the sea
of astrology). To be merciful to the world, be kind to tell me of the
essence of predictive aspects of astrology.

on subjects like Jyotisha, Tantra, Mantra, Agama, Natya and

such many other From His lotus mouth, many gems
were born in these branches of knowledge. The present work is
a collection from the Great Lord's instructions.
Naturally, the aphorisms listed i.i1 this work are found to be
original (but for a re-composition), authoritative and in
conformity to _truth if judiciously applied. There is equally a great
element oflogic in these assertions.
If the reader compares these aphorisms with certain other
compiled worl.q;relatingto astrology, a kind of rarity will be found
in the present instructions. Many of these are not generally seen
in every text book. Hence these are inestimable addition to our
Almost all His teachings are through the Divine Mother
Parvathi, an ardent disciple of Her lord.
From times immemorial, knowledge in fields like astrology,
which are not mortal-invented subjects, came forth from divine
sources like Lord Siva, Lord Surya, Brahma Rishi N arada,
Garga, Parasara and Vyasa. That is the reason why, Hindu
astrology, has been held in high esteem and has always stood the
test of the time.

3-4. Signs: 0 Devi, listen attentively.
I am narrating below (the predictive aspects of astrology).
Twenty-seven Nakshatras make for the twelve Rasis (in the
zodiac), thus: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra,.
Scorpio, S8gittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
Jyotisharnava Navanitant
2 Chapter 1
5. Planets: The planets Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter,
Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu traverse in the signs Aries and
others through the Nakshatras (viz. Asvini and others).
Notes: N akshatras are part of a Rasi and the Rasi concept
is as old as astrology is. In recent times, .some scholars have
started saying that originally "astrology of the Hindus was
Nakshatra-based and the Rasi concept is only a later one". I do
not frankly understand what such assertions essay to convey:
Anyway without entering into such controversy, let me
state that the. present verse throws light on the Rasis constituted
by N akshatras like Asvini.
Even the Hindu Puranas of equally remote past have
discussed about the existence of Rasis according to which, each
time the Sun.transits a particular Rasi,.he assumes a certain
name. (Cf. Dvadasa Adityas such as Mitra, Vishnu, Gabhasti,
Divakara, Hiranyareta etc. during the various solar months like
Margasira, as mentioned in Padma Purana).
Even ifRasis were a much later invention or wisdom lately
dawned on the Hindus(!), Rasi is the primary point in Hindu
astrology. Right from the beginning, only Rasi is divided into
Navamsa, Hora, Drekkana and the like. Narada Purana, one of
the oldest works attributed to Brahmarishi Narada, contains
over a thousand slokas on astrology where the Rasi-concept has
been oft-repeated. '
Some of the western scholars have inaugurated a malicious
and venomous propaganda, coming under the pressure of
handsome rewards by alien interests, that astrology came to
India the Greek channels. They want us to believe that
heavens are under the earth!

7- 10. Duties of Father: I now speak of the good and bad
following the birth of a child. As soon as a son is born, the father
should see its face whereby he wiUgetrid ofhis (ancestral) Debts;
After this, he should obtain the orders of a Brahmin and take bath
with clothes on his body, in a tank, well or river, facing the north.
He should give away cows, lands, gold etc. in charity and get the
ascendant ofbirth examined. For, those learned in astrology say
that the ascendant of birth is of prime importance.
Notes: The importance of arriving at the exact degree,
niinute etc. of the natal ascendant cannot be overlooked in a
horoscope. This can be understood through the following two
authoritative slokas collected from elsewhere.

These verses praise the ascendant thus: "The ascendant is
divine (that is beyond mortals' commands), mighty (difficult to be
subdued), !he master (making the person its slave), the Great
light (or principle of light, the source of intellectual energy), the
great lamp in the world (helps the person choose a right path
within the limits of destiny or commands of the Cosmic
Master), for the preceptors held the same view."
According to sage Narada: "The ascendant (in the heavens)
Jyotisharnava Navanitam.
Chapter 1
remains in rule for a thousandth part of even the minutest space
of time. It is impossible even for Lord Brahma to know of this.
Then what of ordinary mortals?"
These highlight the importance of the ascendant and the
need to calculate the same very minutely. Rough estimation of
the ascendant based on approximate time, defective astronomical
and geographical co-ordinates will never lead to the knowledge
of divine truth.

(a) In One Year: The child will live for one year only, if
Saturn is in a Navamsa of Mars with an aspect either from Mars
(b) Three Years: If Saturn is in a Navamsa ofVenus and
earns the aspect ofKetu or Venus, the new-born will live for three
(c) Three Years: Should Saturn be in a Navamsa of
Jyotisharnava Navanitam

Mercury with the aspect of the Sun or Mercury, the child will live
for three years.
(d) 4 Years: Four years will be the life-span of the child
which has Saturn in the Sun's.Navamsa with the aspect of the
Sun or Venus. '
(e) Six Years: Saturn in Cancer Navamsa with the aspect
of the Moon or the lord of the ascendant (that is, the planet ruling
the ascendant in the Rasi chart) indicates a life-span of six years.
Else, the child will quit the world in its 8th year.
(f) Four Years: If Saturn is found in aNavamsa of Jupiter
with the aspect of Jupiter or the Moon, say that the child will live
for four years.
Notes: "Instant death" referred to in the present chapter
need not be always interpreted so. These are Balarishta
combinations and are capable of causing early loss of life to the
child in question.
Further,.the relevant planet's position in Navamsa should
be known and aspects should be estimated in the Rasi chart only.
I shall give just one example, taking the aphorism under "a"
Say Saturn is in Leo 24th degree while Mars is in the sign
Taurus. Mars aspects Saturn. Saturn in turn begets Scorpio
N avarnsa ruled by Mars. This way, all such combinations should
be understood.
The very first thing an astrologer should do in respect of an
infant's horoscope is to scan the pre5ence of such Yogas that are
specially capable of killing the child quite early ..
Once such Yogas are present, the other Yogas that are
related to longer life-span will remain at bay.
A careful assessment of the strength of Balarishta Yogas
should be done considering number of such rules given here and
elsewhere and we must investigate if such Yo gas as pre :;ant are
surmountable by remedial measures.
As the. reader could see, some of the ensuingslokas point out
impending danger to the child's kinsfolk as well.
The reader may refer to cancellation of yogas mentioned
from sloka 68 onwards in this chapter.
We have to specially note that the aspect of Navamsa
dispositor of a planet on the said planet .proves evilsome for

cases of superior and favourable Y ogas which become relev:ant
after a certain age, past the phase Balarsihta, the same dispositor's
aspect'may prove an asset for the planet in question. ,

17. If Rahu is in the 4th house with malefic planets'
aspects, the child concerned will die either in the 1Oth year or in
the 16th year.
Notes: Once the Balarishta phase is over due to other
countering Yogas, the present Yoga will turn its attention
towards bringing forth evils concerning the native's mother.

18. Danger to Father.
(a) Instant: As the two planets- Saturn and the Sun - are
in the 12th house, and the weak Moon is in the 7th hou8e, the
child's father will die instantly.
(b) In Third Year: If this Yoga (i.e. of the Moon, the Sun
and Saturn as above) is aspected by a benefic; he may live till the
third year of the child.
Notes: (a) The life-span of the child in this case is' far less
than three years.
fiW 'l:l'1ai II II
19. Dap.ger to, Child & Parents: The Sun, the Moon and
Saturn placed in the 5th, 7th and 12th in order will cause danger
to father, mother as well as the child.

'ilij&B'I II II
20. (a) Dangerous: Any (relevant) planetin the 8th house
Jyotisharnava Navanitani
7 Chapter 1
will take away the life of the child (i.e. there will be Balarishta
effects till the age of 12).
(b) Particularly Mars in the 8th house will endanger the
maternal uncle of the child.
Notes: (a) "Sarve Grahah" is the term used in the original,
meaning "all the planets". But it does not indeed mean that all
the 7 planets should be in one go found in the 8th house. It only
means "any relevant planet".
"Any plane tin the 8th house" should not again be interpreted
that one in any condition will endanger the child. The planet in
question should be duly blemished, like afilicted by bad aspects,
bad associations, adverse divisions, adverse lordship, weakness
etc. If the occupant of the 8th is well-placed and is strong in terms
of Shadbala, no Balarishta effects should be foreseen.
2l.Instant Death of Child: The ascendant being occupied
by Mars while the Sun and Saturn are in the 7th house will cause
instant death of the child.
Notes: This condition should be applied to Aries, Leo,
Scorpio and Aquarius ascendants with additional caution.
22. Same Effect: The Moon in an odd Navamsa will
instantly consign the child to the Abode of Death Personified.
Notes: On the surface, this one-line aphorism seems to be
of doubtful origin. Or possibly some lines are missing.
1Jflll: I
23. (a) Same Effect: The Moon in the 12th house and
Saturn in the ascendant with all other malefics will be a source
ofBalarishta or infantiledeath.
(b) Same Effect: The Moon and Saturn joining Mars in the
Jyotisharnava Navanitam

8th or 12th house will also lead to the same result.

of the child.

combination will also lead to -instant death.
Notes: Venus cannot be in the 6th or 8th during Sun rise.
Hence, the position of Venus in the 12th is only relevant for this
Thus, it will form as under: The Sun in the ascendant,
Venus in the 12th thereof, a malefic in an angle and another
malefic in a trine.
Result - instant death of the child.

27. Importance of Navamsa Ascendant: Should both
the lords of the rising sign and Navamsa ascendant be in
JyotishiU"Dava Navanitam
Chapter 1
combustion, the child born will instantly pass away without any
Notes: This kind of a rule throws light on the real utility of
Navamsa ascendant. How important is the Navamsa lord even
in regard to life-span can be hereby understood.
There is an interesting classical rule using Navamsa in
respect of instant death of father, thus: Note the Navamsa
ascendant and the Moon's Navamsa at the birth of a child. If its
father also has the same yoga in his natal horoscope, he. will pass
away on "the very first day" of the said child's birth.
CIT CIT 'lf&ld&l I
28. Importance of a Trine: Whenever the three planets,
viz. lord of the ascendant, that of a trine (i. e. either the 9th lord
or the 5th lord) and the lord of the rising Navamsa, are found at
birth in the 6th or the 8th house from the natal ascendant (as seen
in the Rasi chart), Balarishta effects should be foretold.

31. More Such Yogas Nodes: The child. will
bring forth immediate death of father ifKetu is in an angle, or
in the 5th or the 9th house. Rahu in these houses (i.e. in an.angle
or a triile) will destroy "parental kinsfoik within three days of
birth. In case ofboth the!ie Y ogas by the nodes, a malefic's aspect
is also essential.

32. (a) Father Away: Saturn placed in the 7th bouse, and
being in direct motion (i. e. not being in retrogression) with the
aspect of Mars denotes that the father had gone away to a foreign
land at the time of birth of the child.
(b) Father's Death: The Moon, joining Mars who is just
past his retrograde motion, in a sign of Saturn will cause
destruction of father, i.e. father will face instant death.

33. Father's Death: Saturn aspectingthe ascendant which
is a malefic sign, while Jupiter is not in an angle, will cause
instant death of father. The ascendant should, however, be free
from benefic's occupation.
Notes: Malefic signs are better interpreted as. tlie Of?.es
owned by Mars, the Sun and Saturn" instead of all odd signs
becoming Kroora or malefic.
34. Same Effect: The Sun, Saturn and Mars in the 8th
house without the aspect of a benefic will also cause immediate
death offather.

occupation by the Sun, the Moon and Saturn, without receiving
Jupiter's aspect.

manner, that is two planets in the ascendant and the other in the

Notes: The 5th house occupied by a certain planet as und':!r

The Sun - father
The Moon -mother
Mars - co-born
Mercury - maternal uncle
Jupiter - maternal grand-mother
Venus- maternal grand-father
Saturn - the child itself.
By simply seeing a planet as above, the noted event should
not be feared. The planet should be ill-placed, without relief from
counteringsow;ce&. Proper dasa periods and transits should also
be simultaneously checked.
Since Jupiter has been referred to in the text in the context
of maternal grand-mother, obviously both and younger co-
born in this context come under Mars.
Paternal grand-father comes under Jupiter and paternal
grand-mother comes under Venus, the opposite of eachother,.for
this purpose only.

exaggeration. It should be construed that strong Jupiter or
Venus, or auspiciously disposed Rahu, in an angle will give long-
. life. However, in caSe ofRahu being in ascendant it may not be
always so. Rahu in the ascendant which is one of Vugo,
Cap\icorn, Aries, Taurus and Cancer will give longevity (and
wealth). In other ascendants, he may not be indeed so good.

in night time in dark lunar half, and for a'birth in day time in
bright lunar half, she will have no blemish. In such cases,

Notes; For purpose of overcoming Balarishta Yogas, the
strength of the ascendant should be gauged as under.
a) He should enjoy more than stipUlated Shadbala, avoiding
Gandanta points or Riksha Sandhis ..
b) He can be conjunct the Full Moon.
c) He should avoid the face of a node, i.e. be not with a node
with a. lesser longitude in comparison to the node in question.

88 - 89. Graha Samayas: Following is the method to find
out Graha Samaya (Avastha) or Planetary State. Count from
Aries to the natal ascendant and call the figure "A". Count again
from Aries to the sign occupied by a planet (for whom Samaya is
required) and call the factor "P". Note the relevant dasa years as
per Vimsottari scheme, for the said planet and call the factor. 'Y".
Now multiply "A" by "P". The resultant figure should be again
multiplied by the factor 'Y". Divide the latest sum by 27 and the
remainder will denote the planet's Samaya (or Avastha) as given
in the following verses ..
Notes: The 2nd line of sloka No. 88 is defective. The
rendering is provided after ascertaining correct method of
calculation from elsewhere.
These Samayas are also known as Avasthas which are 27
in number.
The formula given above can be simplified as below:
(Ax P x Y) ... 27 = R, i.e. Samaya of the planet.
Example: Assume Sagittarius (9) is the natal ascendant
and the Samaya for Mercury is to be found out who is in Leo (5).
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
Chapter 1
Mercury's Vrmsottari dasa is for 17 years. Hence:
. (9 x 5 x 17) + 27 = The planet's Samaya as
indicated by this remainderisNamaskara Samaya. Similarly for
.any planet, this process is to be applied.
Some texts again divide each Samaya into six different sub
divisions. But nowhere detailed effects are available for these
sub divisions. The formula for reaching sub division iS: Samaya
multiplied by 27 and divided by 6.
For example, take the first Satnaya, known as a planet's
state ofbatlllng. This 'bathing" has six sub-states, viz. Mrittika
Saucha (Cleansing the body with a kind of fragrant earth), Vanta
Dhaavanam (cleansing teeth), Mukha Prakshalanam (washing
the face), SeetOdakaSnana (bathing with cold water), Ushnodaka
Snan.a (bathing with hot water) and Abhyanga Snana (rubbing
with unctuous substances). These are the six preliminaries
involving daily bathing as noted in the traditional sastras.
There are a couple of more methods ofSamaya calculations.
But standard and reliable texts use the present formula.

24. Sallapa Samaya (chattering together)
25. Bhoga Samaya (enjoyment)
26. Nidra Samaya (sleeping)
27. ;Ratna Pariksha Samaya (testing of diamond!;!)
Notes: Each ofthe nine planets undergoes these Samayas
during various intervals of the day. At a given moment, the
planet is expected to be in a certain state ofSamaya (or Avastha)
as above. That particular Samaya is said to influence it to give
certain results as note'd in the ensuing ~ o k a s For an easy
understandingand application, the meanings ofthe Samayas are
given by me in brackets.
A careful grasp shows that a planet undergoes minimum of
12 of 27 San;1ayas listed above. With every change of ascending
sign, the Sarilaya changes.
These Samayascan be applied to natal and query horoscopes.
For example in a query relating to some litigation, the ascendant
lord is in J apa Samaya, as noted at S. No. 4 infra. This indicates
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 29
Chapter 1
that t}:le querist will win over his enemies. But if the 6th lord is
in Japa Samaya, the querist will lose as his enemy is to win.
Take a natal horoscope. Say the 9th lord is in Sailakramana
or Adri Pradakshina Samaya (S. No. 10) or Sayana Samaya (S.
No. 21). Then the native's fortunes will be mauled badly. The
lOth lord in Vastra Dhruti Samaya or Vastra Dharana Samaya
(S. No.2) will give a, superior position to the person. The 5th lord
in Vidya (or Pratibhashana) Samaya (S. No. 14) will make the
subject highly intelligent, as noted in the ensuing slokas.
The present method of knowing a planet's Samaya is a
unique proof of our ancient's divine wisdom and is based onSukra

II '111
1. Bhava's Effects: (a) The house (i. e. Bhava) that is
occupied by the concerned signifcator (i. e. Bhava Karaka) will
yield limited effects (concerning that house). .
(b) If there is a malefic in a .certain sign, the indications
concerning the house owned by its dispositor will be destroyed.
Notes: (a) There is a well-known aphorism that a Karaka
(orsignificator) in that Bhava will"destroy" its effects. Our text
stipulates ;'limited flowing from that house, which is
often found to.be the truth. To wit, as an example, Mars in the
3rd house may not completely destroy that.Bhava but will give
"restricted effects". Further, there are many aphorisms elsewhere
where Jupiter is said to be favourable in the 5th house for
progeny, Venus in the 7th house favourable for spouse and so on
and so forth.
(b) Here we get a rarely known clue. This kind of
interpretation is clearly made in works like "Saptarishi Nadi".
This implies that a malefic will cripple the Karakatva
effects ofits dispositor. For example, a malefic in a sign of Venus
will reduce the good effects concerning marriage. One in a sign
of Jupiter will affect progeny adversely. This way, an
understanding should be made with the overall disposition of the
Jyotisharnava Navanitam.
dispositor as well.
The above aphorisms should '!:>e extended to the various
houses of the horoscope and not just to the 1st house.
2.Auspicious& Inauspicious Planets:.(a)Those planets
that are related to the lords of the 9th and 5th houses by aspect
or conjunction will prove auspicious.
(b) Planets deliver grief and death if they are conjunct with
the lords of the 8th, 6th and 12th houses.
Notes: (a) If a planet joins or is aspected by the lord of the
9th or the 5th, he will deliver favourable effects. Even planets
with bad lordships can considerably improve themselves in the
said Yoga.
(b) The three planets cited are known as Trika lords or lords
of evil houses. Others related to evil lords will prove harmful So
also when in evil houses. For example, the 4th lord in the 6th, 8th
or 12th or being related to such lords will adversely affect the 4th
house indications.

3. Royal Features: The person will be endowed with royal
features if Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and the Moon are in the
ascendant or in an angle therefrom.
Notes: All the 4 planets need not be so placed. Even one
of them alone with strength, and without :t;ninus points in the
ascendant or in an angle will give the native such auspicious
physical features as due to men of royal clan. As a result, the
subject will enjoy abundant happiness.

4. Emaciated: If the ascendant is occupied by Rahu in
aspect to Mars and Saturn, the subject will be thin and warm-
bodied and be ever lazy. So also when the lord of the ascendant
is either Saturn or the Sun.
Notes: Though this sloka has three lines, the meaning is
The condition of Saturn's being the lord of the ascendant (i.
e. Capricorn or Aquarius) giving the said effects is understandable
to some extent. But its applicability to Leo ascendant is not
generally practical. Apparently some more conditions might
have been enjoined in the context. For example, such ascendant
should be ill-disposed by adverse occupation or aspect.

5. Umbilical Cord:-Ifthe ascendant is occupied by Rahu
and Saturn as both the sides of the ascendant are surrounded by
Jupiter, Mercury, the Moon and Venus.

6. Parents: The Sun and the Moon in one and the same sign
with conjunction in one and the sarrie N avamsa will give three
mothers and two fathers.
Notes: The two planets can join in a sign and can be again
together in Navamsa (not necessarily Vargottama). As a result,
the subject will be brought up by so many people as cited, like

7. Physical Felicity: It has been decided by the learned
that the person will be endowed with physical felicity if the lord
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 34 Chapter 2
of the ascendant is in the 5th house in the company of the lord of
the lOth house.
Notes: This combination is capable of making the subject
immune to physical ill-health.

8. If the Sun is the lord of the ascendant, is placed in the
5th house along with Jupiter and is in aspect to Venus, the native
will be a Brahmin.
Notes: This and the following verses need not be interpreted
as indicative of birth in such castes. With such combination as
prescribed in the present sloka, one's deeds, way of living,
conduct etc. will be such as due to a Vedic Brahmin. For example,
a '"Brahmin'" means one who is learned in the Vedas and the like;
his deeds will relate to knowledge, priesthood etc. A "king" will
be an administrator etc .. etc ...

9. Royal Clan: The lord of the ascend:mt joining Jupiter
and begetting the aspect of Mars indicates th. t the native is a
Kshatriya (i.e. of royal clan).

19. Business Community: Should the ascendant lord be
found with Mercury in aspect to Rahu, the person belongs to the
community of traders.

12. Equal to Kubera: The native will be equal to Kubera,
the Hindu god of wealth, if Jupiter is in the 2nd house being its
lord, along with the pltinet Mars.
Notes: This combination applies to Scorpio and Aquarius
ascendants only.
In the former case, i. e. for Scorpio ascendant, Jupiter
should be in Sagittarius in the company of Mars who is the lord
of the ascendant and of the 6th. As a result, one will be extremely
opulent. But the Yoga is not free from causing debts, if Mars is
not weak. If he is strong, he may burden the subject with debts.
In case of Aquarius ascendant, Mars need not be weak
when he occupies Pisces along with Jupiter. Mars is the lord of
the 3rd and 9th. As the lord of the 9th reltited to 2nd lord, he will
keep one's financial status at a good height, free from minus

'<4'1il"'laiil II II
13. Wealthy Person:
(a) The lord of 2nd house in the 11th house while the 11th
lord is in the 2nd bouse will make one equal to Kubera, the lord
of wealth.
(b) So also when these two pltinets are in an angle from the

along with Jupiter and Venus, or begetting their aspects will give
rmancial gains.
(b) So also when the 11th lord is in a trine with the aspect
or association of Jupiter and Venus.
<lf6: I
'8: II II
15. Poverty: The person will be penniless if the lord of the
2nd house is in the 12th house or the 6th house, as the 11th lord
is in combustion, and malefics occupy the 2nd and 11th houses.
Notes: The 8th house is not included in this process. When
the 2nd lord is in the-8th house he will aspect the 2nd house,
which is a favourable Yoga to some extent.
Among other things, one particular text describes the 2nd
lord's position in the 8th house, as under:
The native will be devoid of happiness from older co-born.
He will perform such acts which prove harmful to his ownself. He
will be honourable and will acquire wealth hidden under-ground.
He will enjoy various kinds of fmancialgains and pleasures, will
be able to improve his fortunes, be averse to quarrels, will steal
others' wealth, will have troubles on account of his own progeny,
will help others and become wealthy.
From the above quotation, it will be seen that the 2nd lord
'in. the 8th is not bad for wealth.

'It'; II
16. Penury & Beggary: Should the lords of the 2nd and
11th houses be with malefic planets, the native will be poor right
from his birth and will obtain food by begging.
Notes: This Yoga should be carefully applied .. "Food by
begging". means a very difficult survival marked by poverty.
When the 2nd and 11th lords join together with malefic
planets who are functionally favourable for the given ascendant,
the degree of financial acquisition will be in fact abundant. For
example, Mars and the Sun together with Saturn in case ofLibra
ascendant. Or Venus and Saturn together with the Sun for an
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
Chapter 2
Aries native.
But when the malefics are functionally adverse, bad effects
will come forth. As an example, one born in Cancer ascendant
with the Sun and Venus joining the 8th lord Saturn will have
unsatisfactory finances.

17. Loss OfWealth: The subject will lose his wealth due to
royal punishment if the lords of the 2nd and lith houses are
placed in the 6th, 8th and 12th houses, as the 11th house and the
2nd house are in order occupied Mars and Rahu.
Notes: In modern days, these losses will occur through
fines, penalties, interests etc. payable to government and other
related institutes.

"<lifltc".%"1 II 'lr; II
18. Charitable Deeds: Jupiter should be the lord of the
11th house and Venus should be in the 2nd house while the lords
ofthe 2nd and 11th houses are with a benefic planet. Further, the
12th house shol,lld also contain a benefic planet. Such a native
will spend his wealth on charitable deeds.
Notes: It will be clear that this Yoga is not indeed
practicable as we do not have so many benefic planets to meet
with the requirements in full. This Yoga in principle applies to
Taurus and Aquarius ascendants.
From a practical angle, this Yoga, agai.nst the spirit of the
original; can be split into three different ones.
(a) Jupiter should be the lord of the 11th house, i. e. the
ascendant should either be Taurus or Aquarius, with simply
Venus in the 2nd house.
(b) The lords of the 2nd and 11th house (for any ascendant)
be associated with benefic planet/s.
(c) The 12th house should contain a benefic planet.
Each of these t_!lree Yogas will give expenditure on account
JyotiSharnava Navanitam
38 Chapter 2
of charitable deeds.

19. Protecting One's Fanuly: A benefic owning the 2nd
house and placed in an angle, or in own sign, exaltation, or a
friendly sign, in union with another benefic planet will make the
native a protector of his family, endowed with eloquence in
Notes: The lord of the 2nd house, the house of family
responsibilities, being himself a benefic planet should join
another benefic planet in an angle, or with specified positional
dignity. Such a person will. fulfil his family responsibilities, like
protecting his parents, co-born, spouse and progeny and will.
possess excellent powers of spee_ch marked by eloquence. In
terms of good placement, we can also take into account an
unsullied position of the lord of the 2nd house in a trine, i.e. the
5th and the 9th houses.
Conversely if the 2nd lord is ill.-placed as in debility,
inimical sign, evil house and the like, and is related to a malefic
planet, the subject will abandon his family responsibilities, be
devoid of power, of wealth, of impressive speech etc.

20. Protecting A Thousand People: Should the lord of
the 2nd house be in deep exaltation and beget the company or
aspect of Jupiter, the person will protect thousand men (i. e. will
protect many people) and be valorous.

21. Helping Others: One of Jupiter, Venus and Mercury
becoming the lord of the 2nd house and occupying own, exaltation
or friendly sign indicates that the native will. be helpful to others
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 39 Chapter2
and protect them.
Notes: This applies to Aries, Taurus, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio
and Aquarius ascendants. AB a result of the said 2nd lord in own
or exaltation or in a friend's sign, the person will be an
instrument in others' survival and progress.

22. Eyes: If the lord of the 2nd house is endowed with
strength,. the person possesses beautiful eyes. Should the 2nd
lord be in the 6th, 8th or 12th house, there will be defect in eyes.
Notes: If the 2nd lord is exalted, or is in own sign, or in a
natural benefic's sign, attractive and broad eyes are indicated.
When the saidplanet is consigned to an evil house (6th, 8th or
12th), particularly in association with Venus, the Moon or the
Sun, there will be danger to eyes including loss of vision.
The 2nd house occupied by Jupiter, Venus or the Full Moon
will also give large and charming eyes. The Sun or Saturn in
relation to the 2nd house will give small eyes.
'"-l"l414e11PC48 1
23. Untruthful etc.: With the lord ofthe 2nd house joining
a malefic planet as the 2nd house itself is occupied by a malefic,
the subject will be untruthful, a tale-bearer and will acquire
diseases due to his sinful deeds.
Notes: The 2nd house and its lord reflect various aspects of
one's speech, like eloquence, fluency, courteousness, truthful or
untruthful nature etc. A well-disposed 2nd house and 2nd lord
will ensure positive effects in these matters. Otherwise, negative
effects will follow. ,
The 2nd lord being with malefic & C giving diseases is an
interesting clue. These do not necessarily relate to diseases of
tongue, teeth, face etc. These could be any disease for that

24. Royal Fortunes etc.: ffthe 2nd lord is in the company
of the lord of the 5th or the 9th, the subject will enjoy fortunes
akin to that of a king. He will be kind to others, will commit many
sinful deeds, be highly edueated and will enjoy happiness through
ownership of housing properties.
Notes: Here again the 2nd is related to sinful deeds which
is worth a note. The 2nd is the 6th from the 9th. The 9th house
isthehouseofone'smeritoriousacts. The 6th house is the house
of debt or negative influence for that matter. Thus the 2nd house
gives a negative or a debit entry for the 9th house in the register
of Destiny.

25. Loss of Quadrupeds: Note. if Rahu is placed in the
2nd house while. the 2nd lord is with his enemies. Then the dasa
of the 2nd lord will lead to loss of quadrupeds, wealth and grains.
Notes: This is a Yoga for loss of properties, wealth etc. in
the dasa of the 2nd lord. Even the sub period of such 2nd lord in
' other dasa can cause losses.

26. Limited Education: The lord of the 2nd house in the
6th, 8th or 12th house in the company of or aspect to a malefic,
or in such a house identical with a malefic's sign will cause limited

27. Mathematician: (a) If Mars is in the 2nd house along
with the Moon and receives Mercury's aspect, the subject will be
a mathematician.
(b) The same effect is indicated by Mercury in an angle.
28. Same Effect: One will be a mathematician if Mercury,
as the 2nd lord, is in own sign or in exaltaion, while Jupiter and
Saturn are in order in the ascendant and the 8th house.

29. Same Effect: Jupiter in an angle or in a trine while
Venus is in exaltation denotes a mathematician.

30. (a) Logician: Jupiter, Venus and the lord of the 2nd
house, placed in their Moolatrik:ona or exaltation sign, in aspect
to Mars and the Sun, will lead to birth of a logician.
(b) Grammarian: The native will be a grammarian if
.Jupiter is endowed with full strength as the 2nd lord is in aspect
to the Sun and Venus.
Notes: (b) this context refers to the lord of the
2nd house, and not the dispositor of Jupiter.

:n. Vedic Expert: The native will be an expert in the
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 42
Chapter 2
Vedas and be interested in Sastras if strong Jupiter is in the 2nd
house as benefic planets aspect angles and trines.
4rct;:c&;:j 1
32. (a) Liar etc.: Mercury without strength in the 2nd
house in aspect to a malefic planet denotes a liar.
(b) Poisonous Words: If the lord of the 2nd house is
aspected by a malefic planet, the subject will employ poisonous
words and will be disposed to cheat others.
33. Logics & Expedients: The Sun or Mars becoming the
lord of the 2nd house and being in aspect to Jupiter and Venus
will make one interested in Logic and Expedients. So also when
the said Sun and Mars are in Paravathamsa.
Notes: When a planet obtains six favourable Vargass-or
divisions in Dasa Varga scheme, it is known as being in
The 3rd House:

the lord of the 3rd house or its significator (that is, Mars) is
related to a benefic by conjunction or by aspect, orifthe 3rd house
is endowed with full strength.

35. Aqcuisition of Co-born: The subject will acquire co-
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 43 Chapter 2
born if the lord of the 3rd house or Mars is in an angle, a trine or
in exaltation or fnendly divisions.
Ui I
37. No Co-born: The subject will be bereft of younger co-
born if the 3rd house contains its own lord along with Rahu as the
lord of the ascendant is in combustion.
Notes: The meaning suggested in the original may be
logical but there seems to be some composition or transmission
error in the words "Tadeese Bhaua Samyuthe". Originally
"Bhaua Samyuthe" could have read as ''Papa Samyuthe"
requiring the 3rd lord to be with a malefic. The actual concept
should be: The 3rdhouse occupiedbyRahu, lord of the 3rdjoining
a malefic, and the lord of the ascendant in combustion.
It is unlikely that the 3rd house was referred to in one and
the same quarter with two different designations.

3.:; II
38. One Sister: The native will have one younger sister if
the 3rd house is occupied by Venus, as the 3rd lord is in angle from
the ascendant, and Mars is with Saturn. .
Notes: This verse suggests existence of only one younger
sister and no other younger co-born.
(?j Cff
39. Of Twins: The native has a twin co-born (i.e; he is a
twin-birth) if the lord of the 3rd house is in the ascendant, or if
the lords of the ascendant and the 3rd house are in the 3rd house.
Notes: In applying this combination, it should be ensured
that the lord of the 3rd house is in close position to the cusp of the-
ascendant. If he is far off, and yet is in the ascendant, the effect
will not come to pass. Similarly, in respect of the other Yoga
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
mentioned above.
40. Younger Brother: (a) If the Moon is in the 3rd house
identical with a malefic Rasi, younger sister(s) will be destroyed
(that is, will face early death).
(b) The Moon in Gemini with a position inN avamsa in signs
identical with human Rasis, will cause birth of a younger brother
following "the native.
Notes: (b) Virgo; Libra, Gemini, Aquarius and first half of
Sagittarius are human signs or biped signs. Since there is no half
in Navamsa Rasi, we should treat the whole of Sagittarius, as
N ara Rasi or Dwipada Rasi, in this context only. For purposes of
divisional chart, Sagittarius can as well become a quadruped
sign. Thus the. Moon in the sign Gemini with one of these 4
Navamsas will give younger brothers to the native.

41. Many Sisters: The person will acquire many younger
sisters if the 3rd house belongs to a female planet and is aspected
or occupied by female planets. So also when the 3rd lord is in
aspect to a female planet.
Notes: Female planets are the Moon and Venus. Ketu is
also a fell).ale planet among the nodes. Thus there are three
female planets out of the nine.
The 4th House:

Jyotisharnava Navanitrun
Chapter 2
42. Happiness & Conveyances: Should the lord of the
4th house be in his own sign, in own N avamsa or in exaltation or
in the 4th house itself, there will be increase of happiness and
conveyances. Further, conch and musical drums will remain in
play (as a mark of his social status).
Notes: Own sign and 4th house are separately indicated.
Hence own sign indicates the other sign owned by a planet from
Mars to Saturn.

11 11
43. Huge Buildings: The native will acquire beautiful
palaces (say superior buildings) if the 4th lord occupies an angle
in the company of the lOth lord and Saturn.
Notes: Satu.rn is known to give generally inferior and not-
so-attractive houses. But his disposition changes when he joins
the lords of the 4th and the lOth houses in an angle and the native
will own giant and beautiful buildings.

at&a> II gg II
44. Honour from Relatives: Should Mercury be the lord
of the 4th house and be aspected by a benefic planet, or ifMercury
is endowed with strength, the native will be respected by his
Notes: In case of Mercury's strength, it is not important
that he should he the lord of the 4th house. The concept suggested
is that for any ascendant, the strength ofMercury will bring forth
honours from kinsfolk. For Mercury is the significator, in
general, of kinsmen.

45. Long-lived Mother: The person's mother will enjoy a
long lease of life if there is a benefic in the 4th house, its lord is
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 46 Chapter 2
in exaltation and the signifcator (the Moon) is strong.
Note:;;: There are three conditions stipulated in the text.
With each condition singly available, there can be longevity for
one's mother, and it is not necessary that all the three conditions
should simultaneously be present.

46. Wealth & Other Benefits: One will be ever rich with
varied kinds of garlands, robes and ornaments and will take food
in such vessels due for a kingly person if the lord of the 4th lord
is in an angle or in a trine, or in own, friendly or exaltation
Notes: This verse implies the benefits accruing to the
native in respect of clothes, eating comforts, ornaments etc. with
the dignity of the 4th lord as above. In a nutshell, an exalted and
opulent status is indicated.

47. Best in the Circle: (a) The native will be the best
among his kinsfolk if Jupiter is in the 4th house while its lord is
endowed with strength.
(b) So also when the 4th house is aspected by Jupiter.
8ct51q'J'j'!:O<I: II B" II
48. Principal Among Men: (a) Jupiter or another benefic
planet is to be found in the 4th house.
(b) Mercury should be the 4th lord, and the 4th house be
hemmed between benefics.
(c) When the lord of the ascendant is in the 4th house,
Jupiter is endowed with strength.
With anyone ofthe said yogas, the subject will be principal
among men, that is, he will occupy a supreme position of
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 47 Chapter 2
49. Merits of Past Deeds: The 4th house should be owned
by one of Venus, the Moon, Mercury and Jupiter who is endowed
with full strength. Further, the said 4th house should be related
to a benefic planet by occupation or aspect. This Yoga indicates
that the person born is meritorious. (That is, he would have to his
credit the merits of good deeds of past birth and will enjoy many
good things in the present life.)
Notes: As an illustration, assume Cancer is the ascendant
iri which case Libra is the 4th house, owned by Venus. The 4th
is occupied by Mercury, another benefic, while Venus is elsewhere
with full strength. Jupiter is in Aries and aspects the 4th house.
Such a person is born with the credit of good deeds of the past
birth and his present life will be an excellent one.

fc#l4'1Ci1&41fd II II
50. Strong Person: The native will be (physically) strong
if the ascendant lord, rich in strength, occupies the 4th house,
while the ascendant is also strong, and the 4th lord is related to
a benefic planet by aspect or conjunction.
Notes: The strength of ascendant lord is to be seen from the
view point of Graha Bala while the ascendant's strength is from
the point of view ofBhava Bala.
The 4th features in this yoga, as it is "Sukha Sthana" or
house of general happiness which includes physical well-being.

51. Helpful to Relatives: Should the lord of the 4th house
be in the 2nd, 11th, 1st, 4th, 7th, lOth, 5th or 9th house or be
aspected by a benefic planet or be in the divisions of a benefic

planet, the person will be inclined to help his relatives.

52. Abundant Landed Properties: The subject will have
abundant lands if the 4th lord is in the lOth house while the lOth
lord is in the 4th house, and Mars is found in full strength.
Notes: "Landed properties" can also interpreted as
immovable properties.
q(q(pq(l I
53. Loss ofLands: There will be destruction of one's lands:
(a) If the 4th house, indicating landed properties, be
hemmed between malefic planets.
(b) Or if the 4th house be occupied or aspected by malefics.
(c) Or if the 4th house falls in a malefic planet's sign and
begets malefic divisions.
Notes: These three particular Yogas can be used in the
context of some adversities concerning mother, education and
the like.

54. Selling Away Lands: One's landed properties will be
sold away (in distress) with anyone of the following four
combinations available at birth.
(a) The 4th lord is in the 2nd house along with a malefic
(b) The 4th lord is in debilitation.
(c) The 4th lord is in an enemy's sign.
(d) The 4th lord is in exaltation but with a malefic.
Notes: The o.ombinations at 'b" and "c" should be applied
only after it is ensured from other horoscopic sources that the
person is destined to own landed and such other properties.

55. Intelligent: Should the lord of the 4th house be in the
ascendant or be with the lord of the ascendant, the subject will be
intelligent and be involved in acquiring education.

56. All :Kinds of Learning: (a) One will be endowed with
various kinds oflearning, if the 4th lord is in an angle or a trine
in aspect to a benefic planet.

planet's sign begetting benefics' divisions .
II \(\9 II
57. Limited Education: (a) The subject will have a
limited education if the lord of the 4th house is in the 6th, 8th or
12th house along with a malefic.
(b) So also when the 4th lord is in an evil house that is
owned by a malefic planet ..
Notes: (a) In this case, the 4th lord can be in an evil house
which is owned by even a benefic planet like Jupiter etc. If then
he is with a weak malefic planet, the education of the native will
be restricted. The 4th lord, without a malefic planet, in an evil
house need not spoil one's learning.
(b) Without getting the company of a malefic planet, the
said 4th lord could be in 6th, 8th or 12th house which is owned by
the Sun, Mars or Saturn. Because the sign of occupation itself is
a malefic one, additiomil involvement of a malefic planet is not

house receiving the aspect of the Moon and of the lord of the

the signifcator is in the 12th house from the ascendant.
Notes: Mercury is the 8th lord for Scorpio and Pisces
The significator of the 4th house in terms of general
happiness is Jupiter. Hence according to the current dictum,
Jupiter should be in the 12th house.
The native concerned will not live stably in one place and
will keep on changing from place to place for his livelihood, at the
cost of general happiness.

91. Cheating One's Relatives: Should both the lords of

while the 4th lord is in the 11th house, the subject will acquire
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 58 Chapter 2
conveyances in his twelfth year of age.
Notes: This Yoga with an exchange oflords of the 4th and
11th denotes early acquisition of comforts of conveyances, if not
exactly in the 12th year of age. Timing of such yogas for
conveyance, marriage etc. should be seen from a different angle
as against the specified age periods for death of mother and the

94. Many Children: Elders indicate acquisition of many
children if the 5th house is aspected or occupied by Venus,
Jupiter, Mercury.or the 5th lord. All these, i. e. matters relating
to progeny, should be estimated on the basis of the strength of the
lord of the 5th house.
eata&loi 11 11
95. Acquisition of Progeny: The lord of the 5th house
should be strong and be related to the lord of the ascendant by
aspect or conjunction. The 5th house should be bereft of malefic
influences. A$ such, the person will acquire progeny.
Notes:"'Horadhipa" denotes the ascendant lord, and not
the lord of the Hora.

96. Progeny: The lord of the 5th house in exaltation, (or)
occupying an angle or a trine from the ascendant (or) being
related to Jupiter either by aspect or conjunction will bless one
with sons.
Notes: Keeping in line with experience, the three conditions
stipulated above should be interpreted as independent ones.
Further the Sanskrit word "Putra" appearingin astrological
texts could be generally grasped as progeny (including daughters)
although it strictly means a "son". In some specific cases,
however, it only means a son to the exclusion of a daughter.

97. Progeny: The 5th house being a benefic's sign, being in
aspect to or in conjunction with a benefic planet or with the 5th
lord will be a cause of acquisition of progeny.

98. Childlessness: !fall of Jupiter, the ascendant lord, the
7th lord and the 5th lord are devoid of strength, childlessness is
to be declared.
Notes: Four planets as above are required to be without
strength to totally. deny progeny. If one of them is weak and the
other three are not, progeny will be acquired after some
disappointment or delay. With more of them being weak, the
delay will be greater.
Jupiter is the general signifcator for progeny. The ascendant
lord denotes the native, and the 7th lord his spouse. The 5th lord
is in charge of progeny. Thus, the weak planet should be properly
located and suitable remedies (medical or otherwise) should be
resorted to. For example, if the 7th lord is weak, the spouse of the
native needs some remedies, the native's other combinations for
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
60 Chapter2
progeny will be ineffective. !fit is the lord of the ascendant, or the
5th lord or Jupiter that is weak, the pe.rson himself is responsible.
These hints should be further judged with the help of
Kshetra Sphuta and Bija Sphuta (as given in Prasna Marga)
which are more important. A judgement without these special
Sphutas or degrees could be a misnomer.

of acquiring progeny.

limited number of children.

begetting progeny.
Notes: By merely seeing the 5th lord in the 7th house or
the 7th lord in the 5th house, childlessness should not be
concluded. The planet _in question should be a natural malefic. If

Notes: Mars is a constant planet in this Y while the 5th
lord differs from case to case.
'Take Capricorn as the ascendant, for example. Mars, or the
lOth lord Venus should be in the Navamsa of Mercury (the 9th
lord). As a result, the native will acquire a child after fifty.

has GeminiN avamsa, will cause birth of twins. When the aspect
is from Rahu or from a female planet (i. e. Venus and the Moon),
birth of female children will occur.
Notes: In the first combination, Gemini ascendant with
Gemini Navamsa in relation to Mercury will give twin children.
In the second case relating to Rahu or a female planet, the same
ascendant will give daughters.
Rahu is not a female planet, but his giving daughters
indicates his ability to deny a male issue.

121. Hihgly Intelligent: Should the 5th house be occupied
-by a benefic or by the 5th lord with the aspect of Venus and (or)
Jupiter, the person will be highly intelligent.

native will be a giver of intelligence to all. Thus the Yoga denotes
a high degree of intelligence on the part of the native.

Vishnu, i.e. Sattwika.
Notes: Skandha means Kartikeya, the younger son ofLord
Siva and younger brother of Lord Ganesa. Skandha is also
known as the army chief of gods in their Battle against demons.
Bhall:ava denotes a particular form of Lord Siva.
Sattvika represents Lord Vishnu who is known for the
predominance of Purity. Puranas exalting Vishnu. are also
known as Sattvika Puranas. This term Sattvika has further
meanings like Durga and Brahma. Since Jupiter is referred to in
the present verse, Vishnu is the right meaning as added in the
original verse.

beget a son early, getting freed from the evils ofYakshini.

141. Destruction of Enemies: If the lord of the 6th house
is in an evil house (i. e. in the 6th, 8th or 12th house), or is
debilitated, or is in combustion, or if the ascendant lord is
endowed with strength, one's enemies will be destroyed.
Notes: These are better understood as four different
conditions, as under.
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 71 Chapter2
The 6th lord in an evil house;
The 6th lord in debility;
The 6th lord in combustion in the Sun;
The 6th lord (indicating enemy) enjoys less strength as
against the lord of the ascendant (the native).
These individual yogas will eliminate enemies, or stall
occurrence of enmity.

contradiction to what has been already mentioned as a right
condition, in sloka 141 supra.

but he will also cause health problems, troubles through litigations

tne lord of the ascenaant is in a friend's sign, the subject will have
a wide circle of kinsfolk and will be free from enemies and
Notes: "Injury" does not only mean that, but the Yoga
covers abSence of diseases to the native. Thus, the simple idea
that the Sun (or a malefic planet) in the 6th house removes
diseases is a The Sun or any malefic in the 6th house will
only cause danger to health. The Sun, for example, causes
troubles to heart, skull and bones, diseases ofblood (like anaemia)
The proteCtion here is the position of the lord of the
ascendant in a friendly sign.
Thqugh not mentioned in the original verse, we should
ensure that the Sun, as above, is not exceedingly strong in
Shadbala. It is better that he enjoys average Shadbala, or still
Letter, lesser Shadbala than the lord of the ascendant.
146. Relatives: If Jupiter becomes the lord of the 6th
house, and is related to other benefics by conjunction or aspect,
the native has many relatives.

of maternal kinsfolk. That is, the mother's side will have large

aspects, or in one another's signs, or Navamsas will get the
person killed in a physical duel.

physical combat or encounter. When a combination like this

subject can be a boxing champion.

148. Small-pox: (a) The Sun in the ascendant, the 7th or
the 2nd house aspected by Mars lead tc trouble from sn1all-
(b) So also when the planet Mars is aspected by the Sun.
Notes: (a) This combination occurs in the ascendant, 2nd or
7th house which should be occupied by the Sun. The aspecting
planet should be Mars. It can be the special aspect. of Mars (4th
or 8th aspect) and he need not be in turn aspected by the Sun.
(b) In this Yoga,a specific house is not mentioned. However,
it seems to me that Mars should be in either the ascendant, the
6th or the 8th house. It is Mars that is to be aspected by the Sun,
who has only the 7th aspect. That is, the Sun will also receive
back the aspect of Mars. Some may like to interpret this part
placing Mars in the ascendant, 2nd or 7th as per rule "a" above.

149. Tumours: The subject will be .troubled by tumours in
his 30th year or in 15th year if Saturn is in the 8th house while
Mars is either in the 12th or the 8th house.

house (with the Moon and Saturn).
Notes: The term "Mandi" refers to Saturn and not Mimdi,
i.e. not to Gulika.
The term "Rasi" in the 2nd lines denotes the 6th house in
the present context.

Roga in the 3rd year or in the 19th year of his age if the 6th lord

the Moon is required to be in such space in any sign .

urinary disorders in his 22nd or 18th year of age ifRahu is in the
8th house while the 8th lord is in the 5th or 9th place from the
said 8th house. /
Notes: Rahu should be in the 8th house as the 8th lord is
in.the 12th or 4th from the ascendant. As a result, the native will
have problems of blood vessels or of urine in 18th/22nd year of
age. Alternatively, in my opinion, these diseases can occur in the
dasa of Rahu or of the 8th lord.

Notes: 7th house in a benefic's N avamsa is better understood
with the following example.
Suppose, the 7th cusp falls in Libra 8 degrees, for an Aries
Lagna horoscope. The N avamsa of the 7th cusp is Sagittarius.
Thus the 7th house is in the Rasi and Navamsa owned by benefic
planets. In these cases, benefic means a planet who is naturally

be ugly and will lack virtues.

house, or the lord of the ascendant, or the dispositor of Venus
occupying an.Upachaya house (i.e. 3rd, 6th, lOth or lltli house)
in aspect to a benefic will cause prosperity to the native after his
Notes: Four different positions each for the ascendant lord
and the 2nd lord are discussed apart from four for the dispositor
ofVenus in an Upachaya house. That is 12 different positions are
implied in a brief expression.
The following notes for the ascendant lord and the 2nd lord
may be useful additions from other angles.
Ascendant lord: (a) In the 3rd - the subject will enjoy
excellent friends, excellent kinsfolk, excellent intelligence,
happines::;, liberal and heroic disposition. He will have two
marriages, be quite opulent, will have excellent co-born and will
be highly fortunate.
(b) In the 6th house- The native will be blessed with wealth,
health, progeny, co-born, happiness from maternal kinsfolk and
quadrupeds. He will be long-lived, will have enemies and will
possess landed properties.
(c) In the lOth house- The subject will gain from high-ups,
be devoted to his mother and elders, be exceedingly wealthy, will
perform good deeds and will enjoy all kinds of pleasures.
(d) In the 11th house - One will acquire progeny, be famous
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 79
Chapter 2
in foreign lands, physically energetic, devoid of grief and be long-
lived. The only minus point in this position is troubles to the
native through disorders of throat.
The 2nd lord: (a) In the 3rd house - One will be bereft of
happiness from co-born, be egoistic, thievish; unjust and
immodest. On the positive side, the person will be stable in
disposition, will enjoy family happiness, be fond of befriending
the king (or the likes), and be endowed with gold and gems (i.e.
(b) In the .6th house- He will incur rectal disorders, be able
to eliminate his f9es, fond of gathering (or accumulating) wealth,
be exceedingly skilfulin thievish deeds, and will cheat others. He
will, however, receive respect from others but will perform
or unlawful deeds. He will gain wealth from his foes
as well as will lose his wealth on account of foes.
(c) In the lOth house - He will beget wealth through the
king, will increase his opulence and will be associated with many
females (or will beget many wives). He will be honoured by the
king, will incur disappointments in acquiring progeny, be
associated with gentle folk, be widely famous and will possess
superior rcioos and gems. He will be quite libidinous in disposition.
(d) In the 11th house - The person will have the blessings
of the goddess of wealth, will enjoy various pleasures and
happiness, will have gainful ventures, be a king's adviser, will act
according to his own will, be sacrificial in nature and will protect
his dependants. He will be widely famous.
These quotations are from a reliable ancient source. Of
course there is no such reference to the dispositor ofVenus in
available texts and so I could not give such information.
The reader will see many advantageous results in U pachaya
position of the lord of the ascendant imd that of the 2nd. There
are here and there some minus points for the of the 2nd and
ascendant which is all in the game.
Thus our text indicating prosperity after one's mariiage is
quite meaningful. A benefic's aspect p1entionedin the original is
certainly a good addition. Even without that, the results will
come forth as reflected in the sourced annotations.

170. Wife from an Exce1lent Caste: One's spouse will
hail from an excellent caste (or family) if the 7th lord is stronger
than the lord ofthe ascendant and is dignifl.ed with V aiseshlkamsa
division and (or) iii deep exaltation degree.
Notes: Vaiseshikamsa means . a planet with all ten
favourable divisions in Dasa Varga scheme.
Hence the 7th lord should enjoy more strength as against
the. ruler of the ascendant and beget favourable divisions in all
the Dasa vargas.
His being in deepest degree of exaltation should be an
independent condition and separated from Vaiseshikamsa.
This can also be applied to Venus.
That is, if the 7th lord (or Venus) enjoys better strength in
terms ofShadbala and occupies more and more good Vargas, or
is in deepest exaltation degree, one's spouse will be endowed with
still an excellent or better family background as against the
native himself. Possibly, such 7th lord or Venus can form part
of a happy and prosperous marriage. In the process, the planet
concerned should not be in combustion, or in evil or inllnical

strength as against the lord of the ascendant, and is in an foe's
Navamsa, or is combust, or in debilitation in Navamsa, or is in
association. with a debilitated planet by conjunction or aspect, the
native's spouse will hail from a lower caste:

fortunes to the person, in case the 7th lord is in deep exaltation
as the 7th house is aspected by a benefic planet or Venus, or if the
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
Chapter 2
7th house falls in the exaltation sign of Venus (i.e. Pisces).
Notes: The condition that 7th house falling in the sign
Pisces needs some improvement for actual gains, for, as per my
experience, it has simply not been true. To beget the stipulated
effect, the said Pisces should be well-aspected by Jupiter or the
Full Moon. In fact 1 have seen some Virgo ascendant horoscopes
with Full Moon in the ascendant (and the Sun in the 7th in Pisces)
enjoying fortunes (through spouse or after marriage).

178 - 175. Physical Union: One will physically join a
barren woman if the 7th house contains the Sun;
with a young woman if it is the Moon;
with a woman in her monthly periods (or a marriageable
woman) or a barren woman if it is Mars;
with a prostitute or with a girl of traders' community if it is
with a Brahmin woman if it is Jupiter;
with a pregnant woman if it is Venus or Rahu, and
with a wicked and dwarfish woman if it is Saturn.
This kind of illicit associations will also occur if these
planets are alternatively in the 4th house from the ascendant.
Notes: The above Y ogas will pass the test only when
Venus, 12th house, 12th lord, ascendant and its lord are ill-
reflected. If these are chaste enough by good associatiQns and
aspects, the combinations for illicit physical association should
be set aside. Of course the Shadbala strength of these will only
pave way for some such results and hence I have not qualified
these with the term "strong".

176-180. (a) If the 7th house has Mars, the native's spouse
will have weak brea8ts. Saturn, Rahu or Ketu denotes long
breasts. The Sun causes hard and elevated breasts and the other
planets sof.t and excellent ones. Breasts of the spouse' will be even
if the 7th lord is with a benefic planet. If the association is with
a malefic planet, her breasts will not be even. Heavy breasts are
denoted by the 7th lord who is not a benefic but is a watery
pll;met, or is in a watery sign or is aspected by Jupiter.
(b) The lord of the 7th house being either Jupiter or Venus
and falling iii a benefic planet's Navamsa indicates even
pudendum muliebre for the spouse. Amalefic thus featuring will
cause a long one. If the 7th lord is in a dry sign, or the 7th house
is being a dry one or the 7th house receiving the aspect of a dry
planet denotes dry pudendum muliebre.
Notes: (b) Dry signs are Aries, Taurus, Leo, Capricorn,
Virgo and Sagittarius. Gemini, Cancer, Scorpio, Libra, Aquarius
and Pisces are wet signs, Sambhu Hora Prakasa, Ch. 14,
sloka 93. The view that Capricorn is a dry sign and Sagittarius
a wet sign is however not correct. Jyotisha Tatva reverses these
two. Sagittarius, like Aries and Leo is fiery and hence is dry.
Capricorn is partially watery and hence be treated as wet. (This.
kind of rare errors need not undermine a text. Particularly
Sambhu Hora, I can confidently assure the reader, is one of the
rarest gems in astrology.)
Jyotisharnava Navmiitam 83 Chapter 2
These classifications could be intelligently applied in relation
to health of a person also. Diseases caused by sweat, drying up of
bodily liquids, excess discharge of liquids including tearing of
eyes and the like can be. known through dry and wet signs.
(Watery Tatva signs are again different and should not be
mixed with. the above. These tatvas give different characteristics
to a person.
Again water-resorting signs are different which show the
inclination of a person to live in such places.)
Our text refers to dry planets also. These are known as
Sushka Grahas and are Mars, the Sun and Saturn. Venus and
the Moon are watery planets or Jala Grahas. Mercury and
Jupiter are watery planets in the above-noted wet signs, and dry
planets when in the above-noted dry signs.

and Mars be in the 7th house or should the 7th be owned by
Saiurn or Mars, the spouse of the person will be a prostitute or
a questionable woman.
Notes: Merely the 7th house ownership going to Saturn or
Mars should not lead to such a conclusion. We should in such a

case locate more afflictions to the 7th house, or to Venus.

184. Places of Union: According to the occupant of the 4th
house being the Sun, the place of union will be a forest, the Moon
a residential house, Mars a deserted house, Mercury a picnic spot
(or sports-ground), Jupiter temple and Saturn a watery land.

particularly Mercury's Navamsa or with Mercury's aspect.

a watery N avamsa, or begets the aspect of a watery planet, the
subject will enjoy milk and jaggery water.

jaggery is considered to be superior for a strong digestive power.
Such verses only indicate that the native will enjoy
comfortable and superior food.

(i.e. there will be no re-marriage) if the 7th lord is exalted or is
with a benefic or if Venus is in an angle from the ascendant.

190. Re-marriage: The subject will have another marriage
if the 7th and the 2nd houses are related to malefic planets by
occupation or aspect; or ifthese two lords are bereft of strength.
Notes: The involvement of both the 7th and 2nd houses
should exist for a re-marriage.
Moreover, the 9th or the lith house, or their lords, should
hold promise for re-marriage; without a sanction. from one of
these two houses, another marriage may not be easily possible.

191. Remarriage: Note if one of the 7th, 8th or the 12th
is occupied by Mars and is without the aspect of the lord of the
concerned house (i. e. lord of the 7th, 8th or 12th as the case may
be). In that case, there will occur a re-marriage to the subject.
Notes: This verse gives some useful instruction to some
extent about Mars dosha. At least one can emphasise that.Mars
dosha in these 3 houses is dangerous for the first marriage in that
it leads to a remarriage, if there is aspect on Mars from the
concerned dispbsitor.

Jyotisharnava Navanitam 86 Chapter 2
192. Urinary Disorders to Spouse: The native's spouse
will incur severe urinary disorders if the 3rd and 8th counted
from one's 7th house are occupied by the Sun and Mars without
benefic planetary aspects.
Notes: To be clear, if the 2nd and the 9th houses are in
order occupied by the Sun and Mars,.the native's wife will have
problems relating to kidney, urine etc;

193. Diseased Vagina: If the 4th,.3rd and the 8th houses
counted from the 7th house are occupied by malefics, without
aspect or conjunction of benefic planets, the native' spouse will
have some in her vagina. A beneficial aspect will bring .
forth help through 'remedial measures.
Notes: 3 malefic planets should participate in this Yoga to
cause vaginal problems to one'll wife. Counted from the native's
ascendant, locate these malefic planets in the lOth, 9th and the
2nd houses.

from or association of a benefic planet.

195. Strangury: The subject will suffer from urinary
disorders like strangury if the 7th, 6th or the 8th house is
occupied by inany malefic planets in evil Shahstiamsas.
Notes: This is a combination for painful discharge of urine,
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 87 Chapter2
or frequent urination with burning sensation. Our ancients have
enlisted about eight kinds of strangury.
In a horoscope, the 7th house denotes the process of
urination. Malefics in the 6th and 8th cause Papa Kartari Yoga
to the 7th house.
In .the natural zodiac, Libra is the sign of kidney and
urination. It is significant that we find Ketu in Libra Navamsa
causing some problems relating to. urine or kidney vide Deva
Evil Shahstiamsas or Krura Shashtiamsa are spoken of in
Parasara l[ora, Sarvartha Chintamani etc. For detailed
information and meanings of the 60 Shashtiamsas, the reader is
referred to the notes on the subject in part 1 ofBrihat Parasara
Hora Sastra,. translated in English by me.

196. Many Wives: Should the lords of the 5th and 9th
houses be in-an evil house along with the 7th lord and be bereft
of strength but with beneficial aspect or conjunction, the subject
will have many wives. Further, where is the question of progeny
for him? (To wit, he will be childless.)
Notes: I believe this verse has a partly wrong text
particularly in view ofthe stipulation that progeny will be denied
to the person. Instead of "benefic planet", the association or
aspect should be of a malefic planet. Then both the effects seem
to be logical in occurrence.

197. (a) Attachment to Others' Wives: The weak Moon
in a:;sociation with a malefic planet and placed in the 7th house

in their own (respective) houses will cause one wife.

many good qualities by occupation of a planet that is exalted,
retrograde etc. or should it be a dual sign, the subject will beget
many wives.
Notes: About dual sign being the 7th house, a word of
caution is. necessary. Merely, Gemini or one of its angles
becoming the 7th house will not cause many. marriages. The

spouse in case Venus is hemmed between malefic heavenly
bodies while in addition, the 7th house or.itslord is also similarly
placed (i. e. between malefics).
Notes: The implication is Venus and the 7th house or
Venus and the 7th lord should be between malefics. Only one of
them so placed will not lead to early loss of spouse.

203. Spouse & Progeny: The native will lose his progeny

Notes: This idea is a repetition, vide sloka 113 supra.
When the lords of the 5th and 7th join, it is found to be a
disadvantage for happiness concerning marriage and children.
Even if the 7th lord is in the 5th house, it will spoil happiness in
marital life.
Regarding progeny, the following verse collected from
another rare source will be of interest.

two or more marriages sbould be noted with advantage. If only
one of them is strong, there will be good effects concerning first
marrriage, like happiness, long-living spuse etc. etc. The moment
such strong planets increase, more chances of remarriage will

Alternatively, when the ascendant is Libra or Taurus, Venus in
a sign of Saturn (Capricorn or Aquarius) will also give marriage
in an early age." For other ascendants, Venus in a sign of Saturn
is a delaying factor. This is the correct meaning of the verse
which is however open to a different interpretation.

native's fortunes will end with his marriage if the significator of

218. Relevant Dasa for Marriage: One's marriage and
such other auspicious functions will take place in the dasa of the
strongest of the following planets: the lord of the ascendant, the
lord of the 7th house, the lord of the 9th house; Jupiter and Venus.
(That is one of the 5.dasas will give marriage.)
Notes: This instruction deserves our special attention.
When well-applied, this can guide us truly. For a better
understanding, the actua). lords of ascendant etc. should be
known. Let us say it is a Capricorn ascendant horoscop.e. The
dasas then involved will be of Saturn, the Moon, Mercury,
Jupiter and Venus. Suppose the native is running the Moon's
dasa in an appropriate age for marriage. Naturally, in a case like
this, one will eliminate the distant dasas like that of Jupiter,
saturn, Mercury and Venus. .
Once the dasa is capable of giving assurance, then the
relevant sub-period coupled with major transits, viz. of Saturn,
Jupiter and nodes, will give better guidance.

220. Progeny etc. : In analysing acquisition of progeny
etc. one should think in the same way (as instructed for the 7th
house in respect of marriage).
Notes: In respect of marriage the principal involvement is
of Venus, the 7th house, 7th lord; .. ascendant and its lord.
Similarly, for progeny, Jupiter, the 5th house and its lord should
be analysed on. the same lines with suitable modifications.
221. Loss of Spause at 28/33: The native will lose his
spouse in his 28th or 33rd year if the 7th lord is in debility whUe
Venus is iri the.8th froui the a.sc'endant.
222. Loss of Spause at 19: Should the 7th lord be in the
8th house while the 12th lord is in the 7th house, the subject will
lose his spouse at the age of 19.
Notes: The age of occurrence of marriage, loss of spouse
and the like should be suitably modified in the modern context
based on one's practical observations. For example, the present
verse need not be applied to death of spouse at 19 itself. The age
of marriage should be intelligently arrived at as generally
marriages do occur much beyond that age. However, this is a
yoga for early loss of spouse, though not at 19.

223. Death of Wife at 24: The subject will lose his spouse
at the age of24 if the lord ofthe ascendant is in debility while the

just at 24.

Notes; The lord of the 8th house, placed alone iil the
ascendant ill a delaying factor marriage. Even when he joins the
lord of the ascnedant and Venus, marriage will be delayed. The
above ancient combination timing the event at 25 or 35 only
shows the delay. The purpose of this Yoga is to highlight the
possible year of marriage .

229. Three Marriages: If the lord of the ascendant is in the
7th house, the native will have three marriages, the first one at
the age of 10, the 2nd one at the age of22 and the 3rd one at the
age of33.
Notes: This only indicates a poRsibility of early loss of
spouse and a consequent re-marriage, if not literally 3 marriages
at the specified years of age.
Balabhadra in Hora Ratnam adds that the lord of the
ascendant in the 7th house will make the native virtuous and
brilliant. He will acquire a charming and spouse. But
there is no mention of re-marriages.
One of the rare classical aphorisms in my collection avers
that such a person will lose his wife, that is the spouse will pre
decease the native. Hence the principle given by our text should
be used, only by adding some more specifics, like the ascendant
lord in the 7th in aspect to or conjunction with 9th or 11th lord,
or the said ascendant lord being related to Mercury and the like.
There is bound to be some danger to marriage if the lord of
the ascendant is in the 7th house, as seen by me in certain
horoscopes. In fact, such natives acquired attractive spouses.
Threat to mari:iage is all the more certain in such cases if the
ascendant is a duhl sign.

230. Planets in the 8th Bouse: Malefic planets in the 8th
house will make one sickly, short-lived and weak-sighted. Benefics
therein will give plenty of money, longevity and much courage.
Notes: Malefics except Saturn in the 8th house will give
adverse effects concerning life-span. Saturn (without
retrogression, combustion or debility) or the owner of the 8th
house (without combustion) in the 8th, and not ill-associated,
will give a long lease of life. Saturn, however, will affect one's
financial progress if he is in the 8th and will check his bodily
growth and family ties.
Whatever may be the combinations for long-life, the
following conditions should always be included as a ritual.
(a) Strong ascendant lord.
(b) Strong 8th lord.
(c) Strong Saturn.
231. Hundred Years: The lord of the 8th house in an angle
or in dignity with a position in own sign or in exaltation and in
association with Jupiter or Venus by aspect or company will bless
the subject with a hundred-year lease of life.
Notes: A combination like 100 years of life-span should not
be casually applied. Moreover, in this case, the lord of the 8th
should enjoy dignity of own sign, or exaltation or angular
position. He should be also related to Jupiter or Venus which is
a part of the Yoga. Otherwise, the lord of the 8th in dignity can
give longevity but not as long as 100 years.
Further, the angular position should not be blindly applied
to 8th lord's being in the ascendant, though ascendant is also an
angle like the 4th etc. When the lord ofthe 8th comes to singly
occupy the ascendant, the factor of life-span suffers severely
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
Chapter 2
This should not be forgotten.
The exceptions however for this particular line of argument
are: Venus in Libra ascendant and Mars in Aries ascendant.
Classicals have rightly exempted these two cases from the
blemish of 8th lordship.
Given below are some more combinations that can give
hundred years (or so) of life to the native:.
(a) If an angle contains five planets (excluding a node), the
subject will enjoy a hundred-year lease of life.
(b) With all the seven planets (from the Sun through
Saturn) in the 9th house (not slipping to the 8th or lOth Bhava),_
the same effect will come to pass.
(c) If the f!th, 8th and 9th houses are simultaneously
occupied by pl.8nets enjoying strength, the sai:ne effect will occur.

digitally strong Moon (vide sloka 86a, chapter 1
supra), and not ill-associated Mercury} are placed in the first
four houses, i.e. from the ascendant through 4th house, they will
give long life. IT placed in the next four houses, viz. from the
5th house through the 8th house, they confer sixty.years of life.
Should they all be in the last four houses, that is fr.om the 9th
house through the. 12th house, the native will be short-lived.
(b) If the lord of the 8th house is in retrogression, and such
other states, without being in exaltation, know that the person
will be long-lived. With the 8th lord placed in inimical sign,
debility or combustion, short-life will come to pass.
Notes: (b) The two combinations given here should be
intelligently put together and correctly understood.
That the lord cif the 8th in retrogression without occupying
his exaltation will give longevity should not mean that in debility
with retrogression, he will grant a long life. For debility (as well
as position in inimical sign or in combustion), a minus point is
reflected by the text. Similarly 8th lord's retrogression in an
enemy's sign, or retrogression in combustion shall also go in. vain.
(Venus and Mercury can be combust while in retrogression.)

236 238. Other Yogas for Life-span: (a) The lord of the
8th house in the 8th house itself will confer long life.
(b) Malefics in the 8th house will not constitute a blemish
for life-span if Jupiter or Venus is in an angle from the ascendant.
(That is, life-span will not diminish.) But (in spite of Jupiter/
Venus being so), the native will be troubled through frre, water,
weapon, distress, fever, thirst, hunger etc. The Sun etc. related
to the 8th house by aspect or occupation will cause danger to the
Jyotisharnava Navanitaui 100
Chapter 2
person through the above mentioned relevant means.
(c) The lord of the ascendant being inimical to the Sun will
reduce one's life-span (in general). If there be neutrality between
them, medium life-span will come to pass. If they are friendly,
long-life will occur to the native.
Notes: (b) Malefic planets in the 8th house will not affect
the person's longevity if JupiterNenus occupy an angle. But if
the 8th house is connected with a malefic planet by virtue ofits
own nature or lordship (for example, Venus is a malefic in case of
Pisces ascendant), troubles through specified sources will occur
as enlisted in the sloka itself. The sources of trouble thus are:
The Sun fire.
The Moon water.
Mars weapons.
Mercury mental distress.
Jupiter fever.
Venus thirst.
Saturn hunger.
(c) The relationship with the ascendantlord (or the 8th lord
as mentioned in sloka 232) are only a general clue and should not
be casually applied without noting Panchadha Sambandha or
five-fold terms. .
239. Strong Saturn: Should the lords of the ascendant,
the 8th and the lOth houses be disposed in angles, trines or the
11th house (in any manner) while Saturn is endowed with vigour,
the person will be blessed with long life.

cause early death.
Notes: .The f"rrst condition is clear. Normally this is applied
to Vimsottari dasa. Intelligent and experienced astrologers can
extend this suitably to other relevant dasa systems also.
The second condition needs some explanation. If these two
planets join in an angle from the ascendant; and if the opening
dasa is ruled by one of them, the very first dasa will kill the

by Saturn is. a malefic. Should the said malefic planet be in the

Notes: The sub period ofthe.dispositor of Saturn will rule
in each dasa. Only in the Maraka dasa, his sub period should be
considered inauspicious for life-span. Some such clues about
Maraka dasas are given below. The reader should collect such

2nd, 7th and 11th when in rule can also kill a person.
Notes: So far, no known text, has noted the 11th lord to be
a killer. The11th lord's dasa as Maraka dasa is an exclusive
concept of the present text. Although the 11th house is known as
the of gains, its power to kill is an eiligma, but the dasa is
generally found to be a troublesome one. Brihat Parasara Hora
also attributes evils to the 11th house.
And the present concept is a worthy clue.
Also see the following verse where the 11th lord is specially
referred to as a killer for a dual sign ascending.

253. Immovable & Dual Ascendants: (a) In case of an
immovable sign ascending (viz. one of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and
Aquarius), the dasasofthe lords of the 3rd, 8th, ascendant and
the 9th will be a source of death.
(b) Whereas one born in a dual sign (viz. one of Geinini,
Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) will fall to his death in the dasas
ruled by the owners ofthe 11th and the 7th houses.

254. Dasas ofRahu & Saturn: (a) The dasa ofRahu who
Jyotisharnava N,.vanitant
is placed in the 8th. house from the ascendant will end one's
mundane journey.
(b) The dasa of Saturn ruling the 12th house (in case of
Aquari;. s ascendant) will alSo end one's life.
Notes: (b) Saturn is the lotd of the 12th and his dasa will
cause death only when he is ill-placed or ill-associated. If he is
well-placed and associated with good planets, his dasa will be a
source of gains, happiness etc. and not death. However, the
implication is that Saturn can easily turn a killer for Aquarius
ascendant, tha:n for Capricorn ascendant.

255. Dasas of the Sun & Mars: (a) Should the Sun beget
the lordship of the 7th house from the ascending sign, his dasa
will kill the subject.
(b) Mars becoming the .lord of the 6th house from the
ascendant will in his dasa kill the subject.
Notes: (a) The Sun is the 7th lord fJr Aquarius ascendant.
Hence his dasa will be inauspicious for this native if the Sun is
(b) Mars rules the 6th in case of Gemini and Scorpio
natives. Thus, the dasa of weak Mars for these two ascendants
will be a death-dealing one.
We should remember while applying this kind of.rules lis:
Calculation of life-span through mathematical principals should
first be done. And it should be ensured that such dasas like Mars
dasa for Gemini and Scorpio, the Sun dasa for Aquarius, the dasa
of the 2nd lord & C should occur in critical years of life coupled
with bad transits of major planets. However, the best way is to
use one of the important four Dasas, viz. Amsa dasa, Pinda dasa,
N aisargika dasa and Ash taka Varga dasa, as thoroughly explained
in Sambhu Hora Prakasa, English translation by R. Santhanam.
it is possible that sometimes these dasas like that of Mars,
Saturn, 11th lord, 2nd lord & C will only give troubles equal to
death and not actual death.

263. Place of Death: One will die in a foreign place if the
8th house is a movable sign; in his own place if an immovable sign,
and en route if.a dual sign.
Notes: The 8th house is a movable sign for a dulil sign
ascending, viz. Gemini and its angles. An immovable sign is the
8th house for a movable ascendant, viz. Aries and its quadrants.
A dual sigil is in the 8th for an immovable ascendant, viz. Taurus
and its angles.
But this evaluation is confined to a surfacial understanding
of a horoscope. The actual cusp of the 8th house should be seen
for all practical purposes in which case the understanding
reflected in the above notes may not always be true.
264. Note if the lords of the 7th and ascendant are in an
angle and or in a trine. Their dispositor/s should in turn be in the
ascendant and or the 8th house. Then, the dasa of the lord of the
ascendant.or the 7th house (as the case may be) will inflict death.
Notes: The lords of the ascendant and the 7th can either
join in one of the said places or be Separately disposed. Their
dispositor/s should in turn be in the 1st and or 8th. Then only the
dasa of the 7th lord or of the ascendant lord as the case may .be
will be a death-dealing one. The lord of the ascendan-t or the 7th
in one of the specified places will not just bring forth the. said
effect but will inflict serious reversals
Here we have an example thus:
Suppose Cancer is the ascendant. The Moon and Saturn,
ascendant lord and 7th lord respectively, are placed in the 4th in
Libra and 9th in Pisces. Their dispositors are Venus and Jupiter.
Assume that Jupiter and Venus are in the 8th house. Then
Saturn, the 8th lord will be a true killer ofthe native.
As per the requirement, suppose the lords of 1st and 7th are
in an angle and a trine. Their dispositors joining will bring Raja
Yoga. Even !;0, Marakaeffects implied here will not vanish.
Jyotisharnava Navanitam

265. The 8th Lord: Should the lord of the 8th house be in
the 6th, 8th or 12th hQuse, his dasa or sub period (in some other
relevant dasa) Will cause death.
31l'!Jffl!IHJ!Iil ClT I
266. Saturn's Dasa: If Saturn is found in the ascendant or
the 8th house, his dasa will inflict death upon the subject.
Notes:.The dasa.ofSaturn who is in the 8th house causing
death is not a contradiction to the aphorism that Saturn in the
8th gives longevity.

267. TheAscendant Lord: Note if the lord of the ascendant
occupies the ascendant itself, and if the initial dasa is ruled by
him: Then his own sub period will endanger the person.

268. Chidra Dasa: The dasa of a malefic planet, that of a
debilitated planet, and the dasa of a planet placed in a house other
than the 3rd, 6th, lOth and 11th (i. e. the dasa of a planet placed.
in the ascendant, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th or 12th) are known
as Chidra -Dasas.
Notes: Tci have a better perspective of this most important
and most misunderstood term, our own text's view needs to be re-
interpreted though it may be against the original's tenns, thus:
The dasa of a malefic or debilitated planet which is placed
in Ol<e ofthe eight places, viz. the ascendant, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th,
8th, 9th or 12th houses is to be known as Chidra dasa or death
dealing dasa. Simply calling the dasa of i. planet seen in one of
these eight places in one. breath may not fit the truth, except in
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
case or such planet in the 2nd and 8th house.
Chidra Graha dasa or Chidra dasa or "'Dasa Chidra"' has
unfortunately remained with the greatest misinterpretation at
the price of real concept behind it. Chidra dasa is not the
junction of two dasas but that of a Chidra Graha.
There is some more detailed and additional information on
this term, vide Jyotisha Tatwa of late Sri Mukunda Raina
Daivagna; of Gharwal.
Chidra graha is to be located among one of the following
seven planets:
a) The planet in the 8th house._
b) The planet ruling the 8th o ~
c) The planet associated by aspect or conjlmction with the
lord of the 8th house.
d) The dead enemy (by 5-fold relationship) of the 8th lord.
e) The lord. of the 22nd decanate.
f) The lord ofthe 64th Navamsa..
g) The planet aspecting the 8tl,l house.
These planets ruling Chidra dasas are uniqt.Je trouble-
makers and everyone of them may not always thrust death, for
in a horoscope we may generally find more than one Chidra
Generally, the ways of Destiny are inscrutable indeed!
However, another worthy point to be noted is this: If two Chidra
Graha dasas come in succession, there could be great danger to
one's life-span.
I have the two following examples for this.
(a) Gemini ascendant- Venus in the 4th in debility arid the
Sun in the 5th in Libra, with the chidra dasas of Venus and the
Sun occurring one after the other.
(b) Pisces ascendant- The 7th, 8th and 9th in order occupied
by Venus, the Sun and Moon in their debility spaces, with the
chidra dasas of Venus, the Sun and the Moon coming in tailor-
lllade succession. .
Such chidra dasa patterns throw the entire good Yogas out
of operation!
In this whole chapter, and in other texts dealing with this
subject, Maraka planets are oftenly pointed out. - It is quite
possible that sometimes, more than one planet may emerge to be
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
a "Mar aka". Then "the. real Maraka or killer is the weakest of
them. The weakest is the one who is devoid of prescribed
Shadbaia: to qualify for a strong planet. .
Maraka dasa apart, the (ll"Bt and. foremost thing to be seen
concerning death is .the greeri signal from SatUrn should
be in appropriate space in the horoscope. InAlpayu horoscopes
indicating short-life' the very first round of transit will take away
the life ofthe native. In Madhyayu horoscopes (showinglJ!.edium
life-span), Saturn's second round will bring foi-th end of life. In
PoornayU horoscopes (shoWing full or long life), Saturn's third
round will he relevant .. The sigit of Satu,rn's transit in thiS
co,.,text should be located with the help ofcbieslike Rasiindicated
by 64th Navamsa or 22nd decanate and sensitive
With a suitable transit of Saturn in the most appropriate aign in
the round concerned,- and with the relevant Chidra dasa only,
death should be declared.
JRUn!G:: II II .
269. A Maraka planet will kill the subject during the
operation of a Chidra dasa (as in sloka 268 above). That is, one
of these dasas in operation will be dangerous for the native'slife.

277-280. Wealth etc.: (a) Note the lords of the 9th and
the lOth from a,ny of the following places- the ascendant, the 9th
house and the loth house. The two planets of any one of the
three groups should be in exchange of signs, or in mutual aspect,
or in mutual company or m mutual angles O:t: should be related to
the ascendmg sign by being therein. As a result, the native will
be opulent.
(b) If the pair is related to the 4th lord, one will enjoy the
fortunes of conveyances.
(c) The saidpair,s association with the significator of the
5th house viz. Jupiter will give many long-living sons.
(d) With the said pair related to the 7th lord (or Karaka
Venus), one will enjoy happiness concernmg spouse and will
beget many children.
No'tes: (a) A very interesting secret concerning the 6th
lord, who is generally dubbed as a condemned malefic, is brought,
inter alia, to light by this verse, if the reader takes pains to scan.
The lords of the 9th and lOth from the ascendant as above
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
giving wealth is found in almost every text. But the lords of the
9th and lOth from the 9th house are the lords of the 5th and the
6th noted from the ascendant. Similarly, the lords of the 9th and
the lOth from the lOth are the lords of the 6th and the 7th. Thus
a relation, as specified, for the 6th lord with either the 5th lord or
the 7th lord will cause wealth. The combinations listed under "a"
above should be individually expanded as under concerning the
native becoming wealthy:
1. The lords of the 9th and lOth, or that of the 5th and 6th,
or that of the 6th and 7th should be in exchange of their respective

2. The two given planets can be in mutual aspects.
3. The two _given planets can be together in one sign
(preferably good places).
4. The two given planets can be angular to each other.
5. The two given planets can occupy the ascendant.
When these five positions are indicative of wealth, it does
not mean that other inherent ills are surrendered by these
planets. For example, a relationship between lords of5th and 6t_h
will cause enmity with progeny. That between lords of 6th and
7th will be adverse for marital aspects.
(b) The association oflords of the 9th and lOth, or the lords
. ofthe 5th and 6th, orthelordsofthe 6th and 7th with the 4th lord
will grant conveyances. The 6th lord although is capable of
giVing conveyances will not fail to give the other malefic effects
because of the present Yoga alone.
(c) Similarly the 6th lord getting related to Jupiter, not
alone, but in the companyofeitherthe 5th lord or the 7th lord will
give niany children. The 9th and lOth lords jointly related to the
planet Jupiter is also favourable for acquiring progeny.
(d) So also when the'6th lord is related to both, repeat both,
the 7th lord and Venus will give the specified effects .. If he gives
up the company of the 5th/7th lord and joins Jupiter or Venus,
adverse results concerning progeny or spouse as the case may be
foretold. A conjunction ofVenus or the 7th lord with both the 9th
and lOth lords, good effects about will occur.
It should be noted that the association with a specified
planet is of both the planets in a particular group, and not alone.
That is why, I have Italicised the word "pair" in the English
Jyotisharnava Navairltam

rendering. Needless to mention, if we choose any one p_lanet in
a given pair; there will be not only decay of the good effects
suggested but rutogether reverse effects in some cases ..

ascendant can easily achieve the results mentioned. When

death of the native in 7th or 19th year. Actually the death should
be of father during the native's 7th or 19th year of age. Thus,

should beget debilitation or malefic Navamsas.

324. Fortunes: If there be an exchange between the lords
of the 9th and 6th houses, the native will enjoy his enemy's
fortunes while that of his will go away to his enemy.
Notes: Sometimes there could be only enmity but no
fortunes through enemies, by this exchange, when these two
planets are of nominal strength. To enjoy fortunes from foes by
destroying them, the 9th lord in the 6th should be quite strong,
and the 6th lord in the 9th should not be ill-associated.

Notes: In a generic sense, the abcive is the translation for
the verse. But seeing the slokas before and after, the implication
is that one's religious rituals (Yagnas and the like) will bring
forth desired merits for spiritual upliftment. In fact, for such
attainments, the lOth lord should be exceedingly strong and be
well-related to a favourable Jupiter or Venus.
In an ordinary context, the lOth lord well-placed will give

335 - 338. (a) The 4 angles (ascendant, 4th, 7th and lOth)
and the trines (5th and 9th) are auspicious ones. Even malefic
planets turn auspicious by occupying these houses.
(b) Out of the four angles enjoying fame among sages, the
4th and the lOth are (particularly) auspicious. The lords of the
4th and the lOth are Yoga Karakas or the planets producing
Yoga .. The others (i.e. all other houses in a nativity) partake the
character of these two (particular) angles .
.(c) The trines are known as Lakshmi Sthaana or the abodes
of Lakshmi, the goddess of fortunes. The angles are known as
Vishnu Sthaana, the abode of Lord Vishnu, the Supreme Lord.
The native will be a ruler by a mere conjunction of the lord of an
angle and a trinP (in an appropriate house).
Notes: (a) That the angles and trines are auspicious houses
is well-known; there is no need to over-emphasise this aspect.
But as for a malefic placed in an angle from the ascendant turning
auspicious is not to be over-rated. It is true that a malefic will be
helpful if he is placed in a Kendra.
(As regards a malefic owning an angle to become favourable,
he should additionally own a trine. Only then will he prove to be
a superior planet to give prosperity of a high order; see Saturn
owning an angle and a trine for Taurus and Libra or
Mars for Leo ascendant.)
(b) According to our text, the 4th and lOth lords are the most
imP,ortant planets and their good disposition, with strength, is
capable of helping the native rise in prosperity. If these two are
adverse, the lords of the other 10 Bhavas or houses will not be of
much help on their own.

<Fiit4\:ii\ II II
342. Raja Yoga: If the 9th lord is in the 9th and the lOth
lord is in the lOth, in aspect to the lord of the 5th house, there will
arise a Raja Yoga leading to professional fortunes.
Notes: Mars is the only one planet that can aspect two
successive houses. Instead of applying this condition literally, it
is sufficient even if one ofthe 9th and lOth lords placed as above
is aspected by the 5th lord.
As a matter of fact, the 9th and 10th lords simply in their
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 129
own houses- that is in the 9th and lOth respectively - will cause
Raja Yoga. The present Yoga as such is a much superior one.
343 - 344. Kingdom: Note the following two Yogas giving
kingdom to the native.
(a) The lord of the 4th in the 5th house as the 5th lord is in
a trine therefrom (i. e. the 5th lord in the 9th or in ascendant).
(b) The lord of the lOth in the 9th house as the 9th lord is
in a trine therefrom (i.e. the 9th lord in the 5th or the ascendant).

345. Raja Yoga: The lords of the 5th, 9th and lOth should
also be the lords of the 8th and 11th. Then their mere mutual
relationship will produce a Raja Yoga.
Notes: Any of the 3lords, viz. lords of the 5th, 9th and lOth
should additionally get lordship over either the 8th or 11th house
as the case may be. Then, if there is a recognized relationship
between these planets (i.e.-between two of them or the three of
them), they will cause a Raja Yoga.
For Leo ascendant, Jupiter gets the lordship of 5th and the
8th house. As such if he is related to 9th lord (Mars) and or the
lOth lord (Venus), he gives a Raja Yoga. Thus, Jupiter and Venus
relationship for Leo ascendant is a Raja Yoga, whereas Mars -
Jupiter connection being favourable is already well-known to the
readers in this context.
For Gemini ascendant, Saturn is the lord of the 9th, and
gets 8th lordship. Hence his association with 5th lord Venus and
or lOth lord Jupiter will give a Raja Yoga.
For Aries ascendant, Saturn is the lord of lOth and also gets
the 11th lordship. Hence his association with 5th lord Sun and
or 9th lord Jupiter will cause Raja Yoga.
These are the three ascendants specially implied by. the
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
Chapter 2
original verse which does not however mean that the 5th, 9th and
lOth lords if in mutual association will not give Raja Yoga if they
do not own 8th/11th house. This is just to show how the 8th/11th
lordship can also turn favourable for a good Yoga.
The SaTJtbandhas or relationships generally .recognized
are: two planets in mutual exchange ofRasis, or in mutual aspect,
or in conjunction, or in mutual .
. As stressed by me in my various writings all these years.
Raja Yogakaraka planet does not mean that he will be free from
other inherent maleficence. For example, if the 6th lord gives
Raja Yoga effects, in specific conditions, it does not mean that he
will not give diseases.
346. Final Rites to Mother: If the lords of the lOth, 3rd
and ascendant join the Moon and be in one sign, the .native will
perform imal rites to his mother during ''Karma Dasa".
Notes: If we expand the scope of this verse, we will stand
to gain more in understanding a horoscope: If the natal Moon is
transited by a major planet the lord of the 3rd, lOth or the
ascendant, during the currency of Karma dasa or the dasa
indicating fmal rites, one will perform .the final rites of his
mother. .
Karma dasa is the dasa of a planet related to the lOth lord
or to the lOth house at birth. The lOth is the Karma sthana, the
house of final rites a person performs.

Notes: (a) Such slokas as indicating "dips in Gnages" can
also be seen as the ones causing pilgrimages etc.
(b) Sanyasa Yoga- the one leading to asceticism -involving
Saturn should be analysed in association with other major Yogas
of such nattire and his position in Vimsamsa (1/20th) division. By
merely locating Saturn in the lOth house, the result need not be
expected without checking these pre-requisites.

360. Sanyasa Yoga: If the ascendant lord aspects Saturn
or receives Saturn's aspect, is also weak unaspected by any
other planet, Sanyasa Yoga (Yoga for asceticism) is formed.

361. Obstruction to Asceticism: One's order of asceticism
will be interrupted if the planet causing Sanyasa Yoga is with
Rahu or with Gulika, or is in a malefic N avamsa, as the ascendant
is devoid of any benefic planet's occupation.
Notes: In the commentaries on Goladhyaya of Varaha
Mihira's works, his. commentators have rightly identified the
Sanskrit term ''l1cf". (Bhava) as the 11th hou.se only. But in the
interpretation of the vide.the 2nd line of
the present sloka, the term "Bhava" - signifying the process of
"cQming into existence"- is interpreted by me as the ascendant
only. The lith bouse does not go well with Sanyasa. Those who
wanttoreplace "the ascendant" with the "11th house" can change
the context accordingly.

through men of mean order etc.

368. If the lord of the lOth house is with the 7th lord or with
Venus, will be acquired through spouse or females. This
way, the source of acquisition should be guessed based on the
association the lOth lord has.
Notes: The lOth lord's conjunction with a planet will
indicate source of income. See some basic examples given below.
With the Sun -. through father, government service,
politicians etc.
With the Moon - water, textiles, mother, females etc.
With Mars- co-born, enemies, landed properties, litigations,
weapons et<;.
With Mercury - through cousins, maternal relatives,
learning etc.
With Jupiter - through astrology, money lending,
speculations, stock market etc.
With Venus -through spouse, female_s, cows, jewellery etc.
With Saturn - through oil, steel, labourers, buffaloes etc.
With Rahu - through Muslims, foreigners, fraud etc.
With Ketu - through men of low caste etc.

malefic planet, there will be interruption to one's heroism.

371. Jupiter, Saturn in the lOth House: Jupiter in the
lOth house will bless one with lordship of a city or a village or will
make him a judicial officer. With Saturn in the lOth house in
aspect to malefic, the native will ruin or seriously injure his
adversaries (i.e. will eliminate his enemies).

372. Rahu etc. : (a) IfRahu is in the lOth house, the native
will inc1.1-r colic or gout pains, will have the wealth ofMlechchas
-and be a wicked man.
(b) Chandala Mercury, the Moon or Venus in the
lOth house along with Rahu causes Cha.ndala Yoga. One born
with this Yoga will not perform his duties.
Notes: (a) "Mlechcha" in Sanskrit means- a foreigner, a
barbarian, one belonging to an outcast race, one who does not
conform toHindu traditions, one who is ignorant of Sanskrit, a
wicked or a bad man, a sinner. In general, we can conceive that
Rahu in the lOth will give money through non-Hindu sourc_es.
This planet may cause wealth through sinful or bad means. In
fact, the term "Mlechcha" is often used in astrological texts to
denote one of a foreign origin, for example Arabians, Yavanas
and the like.
(b) Chandala Yoga has generally been misinterpreted to be
a dreaded Yoga by some recent writers, giving originally
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
unimplied dimensions to its concept.
Actually, this Yoga produces one who does not follow the
codes prescribed for the religion of his birth, particularly an
Aryan, violating the rules ofhiscaste. "KarmaRahita" in the text
does not mean "without work, without employment".
373. of Head: If the lOth lord is in the 7th house
while Saturn is.conjunct Mars, one's head will be severed.
Notes: In the 2nd line, the condition of Saturn's aspect is
not clear. It is not known as to whom Saturn should aspect. Or
there is something missing.

the company of Jupiter, the person will acquire prosperity of a
huge order.

(o<liC::'* II II
375. Planets in 11th House: The Sun and others in the
11th house or in exaltation, friendly sign or own sign will cause
:wealth, fame, eloquence in speech, intelligence of high order,
wealth and longevity.
Notes: This is an important verse giving prominent results
in specified respect, by the Sun etc. in the 11th house. Such a
position in the 11th house should additionally be a dignified one,
like exaltation, friendly sign or own sign. That is, a planet in the
11th with debility or inimical sign or with bad association of
planets and divisions will not produce the good effect originally
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
Further, in the original, only six individual results are cited
whereas the Sun etc. mean the seven planets. Apparently, the
effect for Mars is missing. Thus, the list will be as under:
The Sun - wealth
The Moon - fame
Mars - courage
Mercury- eloquence in speech
Jupitei:- intelligence of a high order
Venus- riches
Saturn -longevity. .

in a watery N avamsa while the ascendant or its lord is in a watery
Rasi, the native will gain articles from other islands. That is, the
person will financially gain from foreign sources.
Notes: Watery Rasis or signs are- Cancer, Pisces and the
second half of Capricorn. Watery Navamsas are Cancer and
Pisces. Scorpio is Keeta Rasi or insect sign.

interpreting others' internal sentiments and will have a high
opinion of his own self if Jupiter or another benefic is in the tenth
house. So also when the tenth lord is related to a benefic planet
or is benefic planets.

a distant land is ill-placed, the person will only move from place
to place without any success.

Transit Effects of Planets
The Sun's Transits:
't II
I. In the Moon Sign: During the transit ofthe Sun on the
natal Moon, the native will incur physical troubles and mental
distress. He will take untimely food and earn the displeasure of
his relatives and friends.
Notes: In this chapter, the text gives instructions
concerning analysis of planetary transits with reference to natal
Moon. Generally, for effects oftransits, the Moon sign is the basis
whereas we must use advanced classical techniques to scan
transit effects from various other natal_ sources, viz. from the
ascendant, the Sun, Mars etc .... etc ... including the lords of dasa,
sub period, Bhava; Moorthi Lakshana of transit planet, Prastara
Ashtaka Varga and the like for obtaining a real picture.
In order that transits as mentioned in this chapter are
reasonablyunderstoodbythe reader, I am appending in this part
of the text four different tables on Vedha (or points of
obstacles), Viparita Vedha (i.e. obstacles turning auspicious),
Nakshatra Vedha based on birth star positions, and Vedhas for
:malefic effects with further information on the subject at relevant
fplaces, resting on my gloss and studies. Without taking into
! consideration these extra information, an analysis of transit
t effects may not be fully paying in all cases.
When a transit planet is in a certain place from the natal
Moon is said to be positive, it should not incur what is called
'Jyotisharnava Navanitam
Vedha or obstacle from another transit planet at one and the
same time. If an obsttuctive transit exists, the good effects
suggested will go in vain. Following is the table ofVedhas.

Jyotisha.rnava Navanitam 147 Chapter3
Opposite each planet, there are certain figures above the
line and certain other figures below the line. For example, take
the Sun. He is auspicious in the 3rd, 6th, lOth and 11th from the
natal Moon. Below these figures, we find 9, 12, 4 and 5. That is,
the Sun's benefic effects in transit in the 3rd will be nullified by
anothtJr simultaneous tran"sit in the 9th from the Moon. He is
benefic in the 6th from the natal Moon, but another transit in the
12th from the Moon will remove good effectR. He is good in the
lOth from the Moon but another transit in the 4th from the natal
Moon will eliminate the good. The Sun gives good results in the
11th from the natal Moon provided the 5th from the natal Moon
is free from transit. These obstructive transits are known as
Vedha. This way, the auspicious plac"es and the Vedha points for
the other planets be understood.
However in regard to the Sun and Moon there are
exceptions. The Sun and Saturn do not cause Vedha to each
other. So also there is no Vedha between the Moon and Mercury.
There is another technique called Viparita Vedha. Even
many classical texts do not explicitly carry this information,
except one or two. I shall explain this for the benefit of the
readers. For example, we find 12th, 2nd and 5th as Vedha points
against the respective auspicious places of 3rd, 6th and 11th for
the planet Mars. When Mars moves in to the Vedha point, with
another planet moving in the respective beneficial place indicated
for Mars, there will be good but not bad effeCts from Mars.
That is, Mars moving in the 12th from the natal Moon when
another planet is in transit in the 3rd from the natal Moon, will
give auspicious effects. To wit, Mars who is otherwise not a
benefic in the" 12th from the natal Moon will turn benefic because
of simultaneous transit of another planet in the 3rd from the
natal Moon.
If we do not know this condition ofViparita Vedha, we will
wrongly declare evil effects for Mars in the 12th from the natal
Moon. T_o obtain a table of Viparita Vedhas (see next page),
reverse the figures noted up and down in the Table of Vedhas
given earlier. That is, those obstacle places should be marked on
the top and those obstacle-removal places (converting relevant
bad effects into good) should be marked underneath.

The third kind of the Vedhas is Nakshatra Vedha, caused
by certain planet in transit in certain Nakshatra counted from
the natal Nakshatra position of another planet. These are 16 in
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 149 Chapter 3
all (two each for the 7 planets and 2 jointly for the nodes) and are
as under:
Natal Nakshatra Transit in: Vedha causing
Occupied by: Transit by:
The Sun 9th N akshatra Rahu/Ketu
The Sun 15th

The Moon 7th Mars
The Moon 12th

Jupiter 6th
Jupiter 12th
Venus 8th Saturn
Venus 18th
Saturn 9th Sun
Saturn 12th
Rahu/Ketu 9th Moon
Rahu/Ketu 13th
The above column should be understood thus. Suppose the
Sun iS in Asvini Nakshatra in the birth horoscope. The 9th
Nakshatra therefrom is Aslesha. When Rahu or Ketu moves in
Aslesha N akshatra, most of the good effects indicated by other
planetary transits will be suspended and only malefic effects will
come to pass. Again, the 15th Nakshatra from Asvini is Svathi.
When Ketu, as per the above table, comes to move in Svathi
N akshatra, all good effects of the Sun will vanish and adversities
will be on the dawn. Similarly, the other Nakshatra Vedhas as
above should not be ignored in considering any transit effect. It
is somewhat a different matter if the directional influences are
puissantly favourable to the native.
The last of the Vedhas, i.e. the 4th one is somewhat akin to
Viparita Vedha but it covers other evil houses for the various
planets. This is not less important for it gives check-points for
malefic places. This way the bad influences are obstructed and
Jyotisharnava Navanitrun
150 Chapter 3
the.planet is mellowed down. Suppose the Sun is in transit in the
4th from the natal Moon sign. He is supposed to give bad effects
but he will be checked by another planet's transit in the 3rd from
the Moon sign. Or say Venus is in the 6th house ready to give evil
effects. He will be checked b); any planet in the 12th from the
natal Moon. Venus in the 6th is one of the worst transits and
V araha Mihira describes the fearful effects in the following poetic
terms: !::ili{M"''iJ.. "like that of a tiger". Such evils can be
stopped by another planet simultaneously moving in the 12th
from the natal Moon. These are all shown below.

In regard to Graha Vedhas mentioned in the table showing
check-points, supra, ."4/ uh urta Martanda ofN arayana Daivagna,
has added a confusion that Vedha points are to be seen from the
transiting planet in the region between Himalayas and the
Vindhyas, and for places other than these from the Moon sign
itself, through the following sloka.
fctW o4Htt>&J I
This is highly illogical and of a spurious origin. Standard
texts of ancients cannot and would riot make any such unitelligible
exceptions of this nature for counting check-points. Vedha points
are tg be seen from the natal Moon sign only, as auspicious places
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
151 Chapter 3
for a planet are counted from the natal Moon. My belief is: Apiece
of wisdom even in a village dialect should be honoured as against
an abuse in Ranskrit language. The concept, not the medium, is
Relel'ance ofVedha: According to sage Narada, verifying
the existence ofVedha is a pre-requisite. He states:'
4 I

QlBi ;:ft: BGJ II
These two slokas mean: "The planet subjected to Vedha (or
obstacle) will not produce even an iota of good effects. Hence,
Vedha should be assessed suitably and only then good and bad
effects of planetary transits be declared. The predictinns of an
astrologer who does not.consider the various Vedhas will be false
and he will become a laughing stock."
The following condition relates to Vedhas, based on an
aphorism of Manu, as found in the Jaganmohanam.
The aphorism is:

The instruction concerned means: if the Vedha causing
planet is weak, its Vedha will be ineffective. That is the auspicious
or inauspicious planet will go ahead unchecked.
h Years Saturn checked: The table given for Viparita
Vedha will be helpful in tackling evil planets' effects. More so, it
will be specially helpful in Sade Sathi (or 7Y.a years Staurn),
Saturn in the 4th or 8th, Jupiter in the lOth, Venus in the 6th
I all from the Moon) and the like. For example, Sade Sathi effects
are checked by another planet (except the Sun, Rahu etc.) in
simultaneous transit with Saturn himself. Jupiter in the lOth is
by another planet in transit in the 9th from the Moon
There is another most important condition to see whether
a planet in transit will give good effects attributed to it or not.
This is called Moorthi Lakshana. A transit planet assumes
certain form or Moorthi when it enters a particular sign. The
Jyotisharnava Navanitant 152
Chapter 3
same Moorthi Lakshana is valid for its journey in the sign in
question. This is dependant on the transit Moon and natal Moon
as well. The classical verse in. this regard is:

'fiGJ am<fl 1
This verse suggests different MoorthiLakshanas as under:
At the time of a planet's entry into a given sign, the Moon in
transit in the following places with reference to the natal Moon
will make the said transit planet as a certain Moorthi thus:
Swarna Moorthi (golden form): 6, 1, 11.
Rajata Moorthi (silver form): 5, 2 9.
Tamra Moorthi (copper form): 7, 3, 10.
Loha Moorthi. (iron form): 8, 4, 12.
For example, say Jupiter enters Sagittarius on a certain
date and time. At that particular time, if the transit Moon is in
the 6th, 11th or the 1st with reference to natal Moon, the planet
,Jupiter in transit becomes Swarna Moorthi. Other three
Lakshanas may be accordingly understood.
The terse results for these four Moorthi Lakshanas are:
Swarna Moorthi: the transit planet will be auspicious .
Rajatha Moorthi: moderately auspicious effects.
Tamra Moorthi:somewhat grievous effects.
Loha Moorthi: highly grievous eff(lcts.
Planets in Parama Maitra Taro: Another of the essential
points of study is to see if a planet is placed in the Parama Maitra
Tara at birth which are, for elementary purposes, the 9th, 18th
and 27th Nakshatras from the Nakshatra occupied by the Moan
at birth. Assume that Bharani is the Janma Nakshatra. Then
planets at birth in Makha, Moola and Asvini are said tobe in
Parama Maitra Tara or extremely favourable Nakshatras. In
this context, Bhattasri Lakshmanacharya quotes the following:
...... -al'U: vide sloka 1, chapter 34,
Gocharadhyaya of his work Jaganmohanam.
Thus, when we see a planet at birth in such specific class of
Jyotisharnava Navanitam. 153 Chapter3
Nakshatras, we should not attribute too much ofmalefic effects
for such planets in transit. This applies to transit effects like
Sadesathi, bad Jupiter, bad Venus and the like and also in
estimating the nature of a planet's effects concerning Bhava etc.
as for birth horoscope.
Universal importance of the lOth lord in transit: The
transit of the planet ruling the lOth from the natal ascendant is
held in high esteem in respect of transit of all other planets. If a
transit planet is inclined to giving adverse effects, its maleficence
is generally or to a great extent controlled by the lOth lord's
transit. That is if the natal lOth lord, while in transit, gets in
touch with another ill-disposed transit by aspect or conjunction,
evil effects will be minimised and auspicious effects will
These special influences of the lOth lord in transit will
vanish the moment the lOth lord abandons the relative aspect
or changes the sign. That is, for example, if the Moon is the lOth
lord, the propensities of good, and check on other evils will be just
temporary. If major planets like Jupiter or Saturn be ruling the
lOth, the duration of effects as above will be longer in this case.
Effectiveness of Planets in Transit: SageN arada emphasises
on two specific aspects in transit, thus:
Ptbw1 11
en 1
en 11
These verses mean: (a) Malefic planets aspected by benefic
planets will be auspicious whereas benefics in aspect to malefics
will become inauspicious in respect of their transit effects.
(b) Whether it is a benefic or a malefic, if it is placed in
inimical sign, it will fail to give results. (That is, good results will
not forthcome and bad results will progress.)
(c) The planet that is in debility, or inimical sign, or is in
combustion will remain ineffective concerning its good and bad
About malefic planets not giving evil effects when in debility
& C, the right approach is to see refusal of the planet to improve
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
154 Chapter3
easily for the better. It is improper to say that one in debility,
inimical sign or combustion will fail to be active for the malefic
purpose it is originally intended to. N-either sage Narada would
have meant that improper concept.
Though these two verses are enlisted. in the chapter on
transits, these apply to birth horoscopes too.
Effectil'e phase for transi.t effects: A planet's behaviour in
transit is not going to be the same in the whole sign. It will give
specified good or bad effects in a certain part of the sign only.
When a planet is not in the specified effective part of the sign, it
may not be really relevant for good or bad effects.
. Prasna Marga, in chapter 22, sloka 42, in this connection
lays down the following condition:
That is, the Sun and Mars reveal their transit effects
whether good or bad, in the initial part of the sign, i.e. when in
first ten degrees, Jupiter and Venus when in the 2nd ten degrees,
the Moon and Saturn in the last ten degrees, and Mercury in the
whole of the sign. (This yard-stick, however, is not applied to
natal positions.)
For example, Jupiter's transit in the 3rd from the natal
Moon is highly inauspicious. These effects will be felt only when
he is in the 2nd one-third of the sign, and not before and after.
The same Jupiter is very favourable when in transit in the 7th.
Here again, he will be auspicious in the 2nd one-third part of the
sign and not before and after. These rules about effective phases
in transit should be well-applied so that a planet's ephemeral
disposition is profitably estimated.
So far, I have given several important tips on Graha Vedha,
Nakshatra Vedha etc. which should be invariably used in wisely
estimating transit effects.
I have closely observed one special character of planetary
transits, although I have no classical authority for this statement.
When two planets indicating auspicious effects join in one sign
(for example, any two planets in transit in the 11th from the natal
Moon sign), both the planets fail to give the stipulated good
effects. As soon as one of them leaves the sign, the remaining one
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
155 Chapter3
is free to be auspicious. The reader may try with this suggestion
for whatever worth it is.
I am not going to discuss at this point of time many other
details like Bhinna, Prastara Ashtaka Varga etc. lest we should
deviate from the present text's analysis as I have already covered
a lot of special aspects in respect of transits.
Authorities considered for my commentary from now
onwards in this whole chapter are:
1. Jataka Sagara
2. Sphuji Dhwaja's Brihad Yavana Jataka
(under translation by R. Santhanam)
3. Jaganmohanam (Vol. 1 -Sanskrit)
4. Sripathi (Sanskrit)
5. Narada (Sanskrit)
6. Vasishta Samhita (Sanskrit)
7. Vidhi Ratna (Sanskrit)
8. Mukunda Daivagna's Jyoti.sha Tatvam (Vol. 1)
Now see, what some such other texts speak of the Sun in
transit in the natal Moon sign.
(a) The Sun in the Moon sign: The subject will turn more
irascible. His body will decay or will incur weakness. He will be
more cunning and unstable in disposition. He will wander for
nothing. His eyes will be sour.
When the Sun comes in transit to the Moon sign,_ patients
of cardiac and blood diseases will fall to an unkind time.
(b) The Sun in Janma Nakshatra: If the Sun enters the
,Janma Nakshatra (occupied by the Moon), there will be decline
in one's enjoyments, happiness, prosperity and honour. His
undertakings will be checked. He will incur losses, aching of the
eyes and head, and will have change of place.
<c) The Sun in JanmaNakshatrajoined by Saturn or Rahu:
If Saturn or Rahu joins the said Sun simultaneously, the person
will be troubled by thieves or base men, will be humiliated and
will earn a bad name. He or his spouse or his in-laws will be
exposed to danger.
(d) The Sun in ,Janma Nakshatrajoined by Mars: If Mars
joins the said Sun, one will wander with his friends fruitlessly.
He will incur disorders caused by excessive heat .
}yotisharnava Navanitam 156
Chapter 3
In respect of points "a" to "d" above, we have to note the
following. Saturn of course unehecks the evil effects of the Sun.
But Rahu or Mars should not fail to check the evils of the Sun as
such. These have to be thus treated as limited exceptions.
(e) The Sun in. Janma Nak.shatrajoined by Jupiter: When
Jupiter joins the said Sun, the subject will undertake an important
rcit n u
2. In the 2nd: When the Sun transits the 2nd place from
the natal Moon sign, mean,mittdedness, evil associations, mental
distress, head-aches, and unfruitful phases in agriculture and
trading activities (i.e. professional debaCles) will be experienced
by the subject.
Notes: In addition to the above, the following effects will
come to pass. The person will have additional expenses. He will
be impatient. There will be a possibility of being cheated by
others. He will be will lack in decisions and will
be disposed to speak untruth. His eyes will pose some problems.
If Saturn or Rahu simultaneously transits the 2nd sign
from the natal Moon, the native will be deceived by his spouse, in-
laws, friends etc. He will lose his money due to his own harsh and
hasty speeches (or decisions) and through journeys outside his
place of living.
3. In the 3rd: The native will enjoy health, continuous
happiness, financial gains, association with kinsfolk and friends.
and happiness from progeny during the movement of the Run in
the 3rd place from the natal Moon.
Notes: When the Sun is in transit in the 3rd from the Moon
sign, the subject will be happy with his friends, will earn respect
from others and will enjoy more and more pleasures.
This will be a favourable transit for recovery from diseases
and major treatment thereof.
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 11>7 Chapfrr :'1
The native will have profitable professional changes and
progress. He will be kind others and will win over his enemies.
Some female in the family may conceive. He will enjoy happiness
through siblings,and servants (or subordinates) and will earn
more friends but be disposed to lose his anger in a fillip.

Notes: The following are additional effects in this context.
The native will incur damage of bones. He may be injured and.
lose blood. Diseases will worry him. His general enjoyments and
sexual dalliances will be impeded.

mentally distressed, will incur enmity with his friends, spend
away his money and be of unstable disposition.
Notes: The said transit will also bring forth pressure from
high-ups, and unpleasant events for progeny and kinsfolk. The
native will be a victim of stomach, blood and heart disorders. He
will be specially after sexual pleasures.

enemies. He will be famous. His spouse may conceive. He will
do good even to those who are ill-disposed toward him. His
desires will be fu.lfllled with his own tact. He will be charitable
and will earn respect from others.

7. In the 7th: The native, during the Sun's movements in
the 7th place from his natal Moon, will incur the displeasure of
hisneighbours. Hiswifeandprogenywillfallsick. Hisenthusiasm
and undertakings will be crippled.
Notes: Additionally, the subject will be endangered by
poison and such other substances. He will lose blood through
some injwj or a disease. He will lose his energy and will often
feel tired. This will be a special transit for head-aches and head
disorders. His profession will involve him in some quarrels. His
honour and fame will be lost. He will be cruel in speech.
In appropriate cases, there will be danger to the pregnancy
of spouse. (Particularly if the 7th from the natal Moon iS occupied
by Mars, Saturn or Rahu, or by ill-placed Jupiter or the 5th lord.)

Notes: Moreover. one's status will decline. He will start
hating his elders and preceptors. He will be involved in some
danger and will be in utter dejection. His religious pursuits will
be obstructed. His financial dealings will produce
misunderstandings with others. Ear and eye disorders are also

from one's natal Moon, he will gain through precious gems, be
healthy and will enjoy continuing happiness and the company of
good people.
Not.es: For this transit, most of the authors prescribe good
effects like our text, while one or two have cited adverse effects.
Most acceptable is, the transit ofMercury in 2nd being auspicious.
Although I have numerous authorities, showing favourable
effects for Mercury's transit in the 2nd from the natal Moon, I am
quoting just three of the irrefutable authodties among these.

transit, according to sage Narada, Sripathi, Jaganmohanam
and Vidhi Ratnam.

Jataka Sagara strangely attributes the following effects:
The .native will be garrulous, will lose his money and will incur
blemishes concerning his spouse. He will have various kinds of
fear and will face troubles as a tale-bearer.

40. In the When Mercury journeys in the 4th from the
natal Moon, happiness to mother and self will prevail. He will
experience gain of grains and wealth. The undertakings
conceived by him will attain success.
Notes: The native will in addition enjoy much happiness
with his men. His words will carry weight. He will acquire
women and wealth.
Some of the good effects attributed to this particular transit
can remain marred due to the native's own sinful acts. To wit,
there could be a slip between the lip and the cup in the nick of the
moment and special efforts will be required in case some major
plans are on the anvil. But in no way, this transit should be
treated as a malefic.

haunted by fear.
Notes: Our ted attributes evil effects to the transit of
Mercury in, the 8th from the natal Moon, whereas generally this
transit is stated to be highly auspicious by other authorities.
According to one source, the person may acquire a child.
His wealth will increase and he will be more and more enthusiastic
concerning his profession. Happiness of a great order and
auspicious effects Will form part of this transit.
As per Sphujidhwaja, this transit will bring forth help from
wise men. The native will enjoy status, joy and others' favour.
Vide Brihat Samhita, itis informed that Mercury in the 8th
will give gains, success, children, clothes, money and skill that
brings joy to one's heart.
According to another text ofYavanas, such Mercury will be
helpful in various ways and will cause intelligence, favours,
position and happiness. (See: f41&1'!1Jfai't

transit and our text's view is not tenable.

sign will give the following effects - calumny, abuses from others,
lack of food comforts, laziness and distress.
Notes: Here again, our text gives negative effects for this
transit. With the help of the following quotations, we can say the
text is incorrect.
One source states that Mercury's said transit .will help the
person achieve his undertakings. He will attain more learning,
will visit pilgrim centers and will enjoy increased prosperity.
Success in honour and money are seen in
this connection, bySphujidhwaja's work.
Varaha Mihira states: "It destroys enemies and bestows
wealth, a beautiful on a couch, her house, property, sweet
words and spread-sheets". So to say, the native will not only gain
a woman but also her properties.. In a simple seiiSe, this transit

to fear and will lose his wealth to others. His fmancial decline
may also be due to females.- His place ofliving will change; he will
incur danger to his life and unexpected evils.

Jupiter's Transits:
(i5i<t>)lj\ I
lti'"<nA44 II II
49. In the Moon Sign: When transit Jupiter a,ttains the
natal Moon sign, the subject will incur the wrath of the rulers.
IUs fame will be endangered. His work will produce enmity. He
will be mentally Unbalanced and be in the grip of fear.
Notes: In estimating. transit effects, prime importance is
given to the major planets, viz, Saturn, Rahu/Ketu and Jupiter.
The roles other planets viz: Mars, Venus, Sun and Mercury
depend on these major transits. That is, a major planet's say is
more on the native' a life than that of Mars & C.
As an example, say Jupiter denotes obstacles to getting
marriedand Venus indicates a positive opportunityformarriage.
In such a case, only Jupiter will prevail, and Vfi!nus cannot alter
the situation.
One Paryaya for a planet is complete when it completes one
round ofthe zodiac from its natal sign. For example, sayJupiter
. is in. Gemini at birth. From Gemini, he will cover Cancer, Leo
eie . reach Taurus iri the end, and come back to Gemini. As soon
as be enters the sign Gemini, the secorid Paryaya commences.
Degree positions are not seen .in such cases.
Some classical books specially give important effects for
each "Paryaya'" or a round of the zodiac by these planet& .. '!'bus
it will be relevant for us to know now. of Jupiter's Paryaya results
whereas special results for Saturn and the nodes are appended
at the end of this chapter.
First Roun:d: During the trrst round of transit, Jupiter's
arrival in the 8th or the 12th from the natal Moon will increase
father's fmancial status: Such hints do not always mean that the
.evil effects of a planet for a specified evil place will be inoperable.
When Jupiter reaches the 9th from the natal Moon, it will be
auspicious for elder brothers and elder sisters. In the frrstround,
Jupiter. will be auspicious in general in Aries and Taurus
irrespective of the Moon sign at birth.
Second Round: When Jupiter attains Aries and Taurus,
Jyotisharnava Navanita.In
174 Chapter3
h,p.ppiness and auspicious effects will prevail in the 2nd round.
Third In thlil" anq lOth from the Moon sigri.
Jupiter in the thfrd round will give wealth, whereas generally
Jupiter in the lOth is not otherwise auspicious. Although he is
stated to be welcome iii the 11th from the natal M.oon, he. Will
produce with government, high-ups and like during this
ID. the 12th and in the Moon sign, he is otherwise deemed
to be harmful by general standards. But in the third round he will
give happi.itess in the 12th from the Moon sign. The native will
experience good effects for himself when the Moon sign is
transited by Jupiter in the third round, but some ofhis kinsfolk
will lose a child in their family.
Fourth Round: When Jupiter comes to. Pisces, he will be
inauspicious in many ways and will give mental distress which
applies to his progress in the first and last ten degrees. That is,
in the middle ten degrees, he will not be harmful in Pisces.
There will be great calamity when Jupiter progresses
through the sign Taurus in the fourth round. If during this
transit, the dasa of 8th or 7th lord is also in progress, the troubles
will be compounded miserably. In case of such a bad transit,
Jupiter should not get the conjunction of Saturn.
If Jupiter moves in the Moon sign during his fourth round,
the subject will incur the wrath of the-king and be involved iit
quarrels. He will have gaiils of money and robes when Jupiter
moves in the 2nd from the sign. Some amount of distress
and a mix of good and bad effects will exist when Jupiter. is found
in the 3rd from the natal Moon. In the 4th, happiness and
acquisition of progeny will come to pass. When in the 5th from
the natal Moon, the planet will cause anguish and royal wrath for
some time which will improve later. If he reaches the 9th, he will
bring forth wealth. In the lOth from the natal Moon, he will
destroy the native's enemies. In the 11th as well as in the 12th,
one's wealth will increase.
Fifth Round: When in the Moon sign, he will cause anguish.
In the 2nd from the sign, wealth Will flow. Transit in the 3rd from
the Moon will produce happiness.
In the 4th from the natal Moon, Jupiter will increase one's
prosperity and fortunes, more so in abundance for one born with
Jyotisharnava Navanitam
the Moon Gemini.
In the 5th round, Jupiter in the initial part of Aries will give
wealth. In Taurus, the prosperity will be much higher.
Thus, the five Paryayas or rounds of transits have been
specially treated in certain special respects.
Without taking into consideration any particular round,
Jupiter's transit on the Moon sign is described as under by texts
in general. The person will have some change of place. He will
be ever wandering, will incur enmity with mother, spouse;
progeny and co-hom, and go through bad patches of health. He
will nearly be humiliated. His articles will be lost. He will face
opposition at each and every step.

50. In the 2nd: The native will enjoy mental happiness,
increase of fame, good fortunes and acquiSition of money. He will
spend on charities. These will be when Jupiter transits the 2nd
place from the natal Moon sign.
Notes: With Jupiter in the 2nd piace from the Moon, the
subject will additionally be respected by others. He will enjoy
family happiness. His plans will be fruitful and he will
professionally stand to gain. One may also acquire an off-spring.

51. In the 3rd: Jupiter's transit in the 3rd froin the natal
Moon will cause a lot of anguish, enmity with relatives, utter
financial debacles, physical sickness, interruption of work, and
Notes: "Let one survive the transit of Jupiter in tne 3rd
from the natal Moon" is the cryptic remark made by one of the
ancient au,thorities, bringing to light the intensity of
accompanying evils just as Varaha Mihira sees Venus in the 6th
from the natal Moon sign as a horrible tiger! (It is a different
matter, he used the word tiger to fit in tactfully
Jyotisharnava Navanitam 176 Chapter3
the class of meter of his poem, Sardula Vikriditam.)
In detail, classical works speak of this transit in the following
manner. The person's place will be destroyed. Some of his near
and dear will pass away. His spouse will incur dangers. He will
face obstacle after obstacle in his work, but in the end will see
suc.cess. He may lose health, progeny arid quadrupeds. His
relatives. will blame him. He will be in the height of dejection. He
will foolishly trust others and will stand to lose.

52. In the 4th: During the transit of Jupiter in the 4th place
from the natal Moon, the person will go abegging. He will be not
mentally stable. His splendour (or physical energy) will be lost.
He will spend away his money, will go away to a distantland and
be involved in quarrels.
Notes: With this transit, additional results .will be as
under. The subject will experience grief due to his kirisfolk.
There will be danger to the person through quadrupe<ls and the
like. He will serve others or be a subordinate to them. For most
part, he will be in."exile" and earn displeasure of his mother,
spouse and progeny. His wealth will be endangered and there
may be a death in the family.

Saturn and Mars. The Sun's not obstructing Saturn does not
anywayy apply to the nodes.

chosen whereaS the.se are not a part of the Yoga. Only an angle
or a trine can form the basis of Yoga. Or it may mean that in the
2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 11th it gives similar results as per verse 35

placed in such a trine, the native will incur effects equal to death
or will lose his wealth. .
Notes: This verse is to be understood thus. For example,
in a Cancer Lagna horoscope, Saturn is in Scorpio or Pisces and
there are no Bindus in the particular sign in Bhinna Ashil;lka
varga of Saturn. Then the effect stated.will materialise.

43 - 44. Three Khandas or Zones: The three zones as
being explained hereunder should f"rrst be examined (before
declaring Ash taka Varga effects). The f"rrst zone is from Pisces to
Gemini; the second one is from Cancer to Libra; and the third one
is from Scorpio to Aquarius.
Notes: There are three different schools of thought on
Khanda Traya or three A V zones.
Our text takes Pisces through Gemini, and the like as three
different zones.
Some texts classify the f"rrst four houses from ascendant as
IJISt Khanda, 5th to 8th houses from the ascendant as second
Khanda, and 9th to 12th houses as third Khanda.
There is yet another view. The 12th, 1st, 2nd and 3rd are
f"rrst Khanda, 4th to 7th are second Khanda, and 8th to 11th are
It is difficult to say which one is right.
For effects ofKhandas as per our text, see notes under verse
45 below.
''11311'!'fo4<i Si'bc-441:_ I
gx 11
45. Effects: Ignore the three houses, viz. the 6th, 8th and
12th houses from the ascendant in these three Khandas or zones.
The zone having predominant malefic occupation will yield
malefic results. Benefics will increase favourable effects. Both
benefics and malefics in a zone will give mixed results.
Notes: The reference here is to Sarvashtaka Varga Hindus,
i.e. the"gross Hindus in the various planets' Bhinna Ashtaka
Vargas added up together.
Note down the total Bindus in the 4 signs from Pisces to
Jyotisharnava Navanitrun
Gemini which is the first zone. The ones in the 4 signs from
Cancer to Libra denote the acquisition in second zone. Lastly the
third zone comprises of the total Bindus in the 4 signs from
Scorpio to Aquarius.
The first zone represents first l/3rd oflife-span (calculated
through mathematical means, viz. one of Ashtaka Varga Ayu,
Amsayu eic. ); the s_econd zone represents the 2nd slab oflife-span
and the third zone represents the last 113rd of life-span.
If benefic planets are predominant in a particular zone,
that part of life will bring forth good effects. The zone having
more midefic influences will give adverse effects in that particular
one-third part of life. Mixed planets will give mixed effects.
In seeing occupation of malef"Ics and benefics, the 6th, 8th
and the 12th are to be ignored. It is understood that one zone will
have no evil house, one zone have only one evil house, and yet
another one will have two of the three evil houses. Our
suggests exclusion ofBindus in the three evil houses, viz. 6, 8 imd
12 whereas some texts do not add the 6th house "to the list of
exclusion. The addition of" 6th house is only correct.

formed if there are more Bindus in the first and third zones (as
in the three zones mentioned in the previous slokas) while the
middle zone (Cancer to Libra) has less number of Bind us. One
having this yoga will enjoy prosperity in the first and last parts
of life. In the middle part of life, there will be reduced prosperity.

second one having more Bindus than the first one, a:ad the third
one having still more Bii!.dus than the second one will cause a
Yoga called Kaahala Yoga. One born in this Yoga will enjoy less
happiness in the fu-st part of life, mediocre happiness
in the middle of life and a kingdom (or exceeding happiness) in
the last one third part of life.

following circumstances: There should be maximum Bindus in
the frrst zone, the second one should have lesser Bindus, and the
third one should have the least number ofBindus. One born in
this Yoga will enjoy maximum fortunes in the frrst one third oflife
which will gradually decline iq. the next two slabs of life.

52 53. Sarvanga Yoga: If there are equal number of
Bindus in all the three zones (i. e. in all the three Khandas),
Sarvanga Yoga is formed. One born in this Yoga will
uninterruptedly enjoy wealth, cereals etc.
Notes: The total numberofBindus contributed by 7 planets
will always be 337. (The ascendant's contribution of 49 points is
not used in general Sarva Ashtaka Varga but in life-span
calculations.) Thus, there may not be mathematically
number of Bindus in the three zones. There will be one Bindu
more in a particular Khanda, than the other two.

11. A subordinate king, a king, wide kingdom and lordship
of the world are respectively granted by 2, 3, 4 and 5 planets in
exaltation degrees.
Notes: Results as mentioned above to a "great extent"
though in a modified form in modern days, can be seen if one
strictly adheres to locate exalted planet/s within the degrees
specified for exaltation: Merely being in. a relevant sign, the
results suggested will never come to pass.
For example, the Moon is not exalted in the whole of
Taunts. Only the first three degrees are her exaltation zone.
Once the Moon enters the 4th degree of Taunts, she is bereft of
exaltation strength.
Take Saturn as another example. He is beyond exaltation,
and is no more exalted, the moment he enters the 21st degree of
Libra. Unless this m'uch of care is taken, we will not see the
effects in real terms: The purpose of ancients in fixing deep
exaltation points should not go in vain.

exist in classical text-books.
Jyoti.<;ha Tattvam ofMukundaDaivagna has the following:

'GI'jji"<WOSC:U: II
This stipulates the following. For Rahu, Virgo is the own
sign; Aquarius is Moolatrikona and twenty degrees of Gemini are
exaltation space. As regards Ketu, own sign is Pisces; Leo is
Moola trikona, and twenty degrees of Sagittarius exalt him.
According to this, debilitation spaces should be understood
to be opposite exaltation. In these cases, twenty degrees mean
the 3rd and 2nd decanates of the sign.
Keeping this as a basis, the reader may correlate the views
of other texts and come to a definite conclusion with extensive
practical application.

Notes: This is a very important combination. Although the
first house is included to the list of angles, the conjunction of Mars
and the Moon should not be given importance in this context.
Their conjunction has more inherent evils. Further, the Moon
debilitated as Mars is in her angle will cause great harm to
mother. Similarly, with Mars in Cancer in debility while the
Moon is angular thereof, harm to brothers and sisters will be
experienced. These are some practical exceptions.

Notes: A careful study of the rulership of Jupiter as above
will reveal that this Yoga applies only to an immovable ascendant.
For an immo.vable ascendant, even one of the 3 planets, viz.
the lords ofthe 2nd, 9th and 11th in an angle from the Moon C!lll
cause this yoga. That excludes the conditional participation of
Jupiter. The Yoga is formed as under:
In case of Taurus ascendant, one of Mercury, Saturn and
Jupiter, can be in an angle from the Moon. In case of Leo
ascendant, one of Mercury and Mars can be angular to the Moon.
In case of Scorpio ascendant, one of Jupiter, the Moon and
Mercury can be angular to the Moon. In case of Aquarius, either
Jupiter or Venus can be angular to the Moon. It will be seen that
except for Leo, in the other three cases, Jupiter can be a participllllt
of this Yoga.
Deva Keralam, p. 76, Book II, does not refer to the 9th lord
but to the lOth lord.
