INTRODUCTION
In spite of the fact that numerous authoritative classics Hindu Astrology areavailable,we have taken on the liberty to present this small volume on the subject. We have felt it very necessarydue to our experienceof several years that we discovered that certain basic concepts Astrology that had lost sight of and had not of found place in the books of Astrology at present available. As will be seenby the readersafter a perusal of this book, there is a good number of special aspects and principles brought to light in this book, which will prove to be of immense practical utility not only for personswith an elementary knowledge of Astrology but also for those engaged in research and are in dn advanced stage of their studies. The basic concepts of Astrology dealt with in this book are such which ascribe great significance and importance to the connectionsbetween a house,its lord and its significator (Karnka).We have found in our prolonged study and researchthat basicrules for proper analysis of Yogas in Astrology, which cause certain events in the lives of the natives have not been dealt with in the available astrologicalclassics. have tried We to fill this gap to the best of our ability by analysing and demonstrating such principles logically because is our it firm belief that logic is the soul of the science of Astrology. We have often observed that the students of Astrology while dealing with certain aspects in a nativity keep only a limited or partial vision on the

of principles of assessment a horoscope.We have, therefore,made an attempt to deviserules to examinea certain human aspectfrom a number of housesand we ardently hope that the methodsdemonstratedherewill and recognition. receiveuniversal acceptance A seriousconsiderationof factswill inevitably lead to the conclusionthat symbology plays a very important part in predictive Astrology. It will be very difficult for one to successfullystudy and correctly understand the subjectof AstroloW,if he is ignorant of significanceof symbology.How important is the useof symbology will be app a r e n t f r o m a p e ru sa l o f sl o k a 47 which demonstratesthat all matters related to the Ascendant (Lagna)can be easily analysedand determined through the principles of symbology. Similarly another example of the practical utility of symbology will be found in the case of Mercury who has been described as 'Kumara' (a boy of tender age).We have found that as Mercury representsvery young age therefore he gives his results in the early part of life (seesloka 30). With due respectsto the learnedand very proficients in Astrolo1y, we humbly submit that the generally accepted theory that a planet when retrograde gains more strength, is not wholly acceptable to us. We, however, agree that the theory is true partially. While dealing with this subject, we have fully discussed the principles laid down in Uttara Kalamrita fbr retrograde planets in exaltation and in debilitation alongwith other situations in which a planet is retrograde. We are confident that all those engagedin the serious study of Astrology, after practical applicaton of our views, will support us. We are perhaps the first in the field of Astrology to discover,me-+ion and put to practical use the special

t(.

effectsof the aspectsof planets,on either side of a house or the planet situated in it (qrlffi Eful. We are of the view that specialeffectsof such aspects only prove not the validity of Yogaslike Adhiyoga (for example, see Sloka28) also enable us to correctly interpret the effects of the concernedplanets. The method of determining the times of events like marriage, dawn of fortune (Bhagyodaya)by calculating the average period of planets like Mercury etc., describedby us here has been devised after prolonged researchand will not be found in any other work on Astrology. This method could also be usefully applied for determination of the length of academiccareer,etc. We have only indicated the results of our research and their applicability on other mattersconcerninga nativity, will depend on further research our readers. by The authors of various astrological works \ave generally laid stresson the examinati6n of the 8th hduse for determining the causeof death but we feel that it is also important to take into accountthe disposition and strength of the Ascendantand its lord for this purpose. (Seesloka 64 and the illustration given by us). Although we do claim that many of the conceptsof predictive Astrology discussedin this book, have been brought to light for the first time, but we are quite sure that none of them is againstthe establishedprinciples of Hindu Astrology. All the principles mentioned here can be authenticatedby referenceto classicaltexts but we have not found it possibleto do so for want of space. While we are confident that meticulous application of principles contained in this book will enable our readers to make amazingly accurate prediction. We would feel more than satisfied if even appreciable success achievedin this direction. is

Elementary Knowledg" of Astrology


Before we take up the subject proper, we propose to impart in this sectionsomeelementaryknowledge of the basicsof Hindu Astrology. This will help those who have very little knowledge but are keen to study this subject.It is a matter of common knowledge that there are many persons who have no elementary grounding in this subject but are keen to study books on Astrology. The birth chart is the map of the heavensat the time of birth and containsplanetsin the positionsasthey are in the zodiac at that time. Zodiac The first thing we should know is"Zodiac". It is an imaginary broad belt in the heavensextendingabout 9 degreeson eachside of the ecliptic. Ecliptic is the path of the Sunwhich (path) passes exactlytfuough the centre of the Zodiac. The Zodiac is an imaginary circle of 360 degreesand our learned ancientsdivided this circle into twelve equal parts of 30 degreeseach.Eachequal part of 30 degreesis known as a sign (Rasi).

Signs or Rasis and Planets There are twelve signsand nine planets.Out of the nine planetsthere are only sevenwho are lords of the twelve signs.The Sun and the Moon own only one sign each, the remaining five viz., Mars, Mercury, Jupiter Venusand Saturn own two signs each.The remaining two planets Rahu and Ketu do not own any signs as they are termed as shadowy planets representingthe lord of sign in which they areplaced.The following table shows the 12 signs and their lords.

The differencein the two forms is that while in form I will always be at the locations(houses)as signs (Rasis) slio*n in the form. If the rising sign or the Ascendantis Aries, the housecontaining the sign Aries will become the Ascendantand also the firsthouse' Thenin clockwise elevenhouses'If direction, we will have the subsequent the Ascendantfalls, say,in the sign of Sagittarius,the house containing this sign Sagittariuswill becomethe houses Ascendantand the first house and subsequent will be counted in the clockwisemanner further. In form II that is the one followed in North India, the housemarked I (first)will always be the Ascendant whateverbe the rising sign.For example,the rising sign is Libra (No. 7) or in other words the Ascendantfalls in the sign Libra, we will put the Ascendant in the first house marking it as 7. Thereafter we move in anticlockwisedireclion and the secondhousewill be in the on' sign Scorpio(No. 8), the third in Sagittariusand._s-o in Leo, (No' 5) tf-the rising sign is Leo, the Ascendant housewill be in Virgo will be the first house.The second (No. 6) the third in Libra (No. 7) and so on.

Another differenceis that in the form used in South India, the number of the sign is not written in the chart, and one has to rememberthe placesreservedfor Aries and other signs which would always remain the same. In the form used in North India we show the Ascendant by putting the number of the rising sign in thefirst house and the eleven signs subsequentto the rising sign in other elevenhouses.This will be better understood by the following birth chart.

Benefic and Malefic Planets The Sun,Mars, Saturn,Rahu and Ketu are natural malefics.Jupiter and Venusare natural benefics. The Moon is a benefic when strong and a malefic when weak. On'the Amavasya day the Moon losesall her lust re o n a c c o u n t o f n e a rn e ssto th e S un and is renderedabsolutelyweak.Thenbeginsthe bright half of the lunar month and Moon starts moving away from the Sun. When she is 72 degreesaway, she is supposedto be in some strength.When the Moon is L80 d e g r e e sa w a y fro m th e S u n sh e a ttains full strength.Thus the Moon is a beneficwhen more than 72 degreesaway frorn the Sun and a malefic when within 72 degreesof the Sun. Mercury is a benefic when aloneor is associated with benefics. becomes He a malefic, when conjoinedwith malefics.

The figures1.,2,3,4within bracketsadjacent the to namesof the constellations their quartersor padas. are The following method is adopted for calculatingthe balanceof major period at birth. Supposethe longitude of tlre Moon at birth is 3-13'-12'(that is Cancer13"-12'). Canc e r i s c o m p o se d o f o n e q u a rte r o r 3"- 20' of Punarvasu, four quarters(13'-20')of Pushyamiand four quarters of Aslesha.As the longitude of the Moon is Cancer 1.3o-1,2', has passed the 4th quarter of it Punarvasuin this sign and is in Pushyami.To find out how much the Moon has moved in Pushyami,we will deduct 3"-20' of Punarvasufrom the Moon's 13". 12'. Thus the balance remains 9".32'. The extent of the '1 .3 " -2 0 '. whole o f P u s h y a mi i s T h e l or d of this constellationis Saturn, whose total major period is L9 years.Therefore 1.3'-20'being equal to 19 years, 9"-32'will be equalto L4 years,6months and 22days this indicatesthat 1.4years,6months and22 days of Saturn's major period are already over at birth and balancethat would remainin credit at birth will be L9 years minus 14 years,6 months and 22 days, that is, 4 years,5 months and 8 days. According to order given by us earlier about the major periods followed major periods, the subsequent will be of Mercury, Ketu, Venus,The Sun, The Moory Mars etc.

After finding out the major period at birth we have to find out the sub-periodsor Antardasas the major in period of eachplanet. The sub-periodsof all the nine planets are in proportion to the years of their major periods. The first sub-period always belongsto lord of t h e m a j o r p e r io d a n d th e su b -p e ri ods of the remaining eight planets will be in the order given in the table for major periods subsequently.

The following are the significations (Karkatwas) of variousplanets. The Sun : Father,govt, religion, body The Moon : Mind, mother,body Mars Youngerbrother,violence Mercury Education Money matters, children, elder fupiter brother, husbands for women, religion. Venus : Pleasures, wives for the males Saturn : Longevity,diseases,lands.

There is no doubt about the importance and efficacy of the above rule laid down in SarvarthaChintamani for consideration of all astrologicalproblems; but we find it necessary add that when we give consideration to to a particula4problem of subjec! it is not sufficient to confine our analysis only to the house concernedbut extend it to the examina\ionof other concernedhouses also. For example,if we have to considerany problem about speech,we should not restrict our examination to the secondhouseonly; but should pay due attention to the disposition of the fifth house also.Similarly all problems about gain and loss of money shouli be examined with reference to both the second and ele v e n t h h o u s e s .

But the actual

fact is that thesefive planetsare always in direct motion; but because their relative movement with respectto of earth they sometimeslook like moving backward.This can be explained by the exampleof two trains moving in the same direction on parallel rails.

In this relation it must always be kept in mind that in Astrology what we see is more important and acceptable than the factual position and the effects of the planetsshould be judged accordinglyby using logic and symbology.For example,accordingto scientists the Sun is a star like other stars in the sky and does not rotate like the Earth and other planets.Yet we on the earth see the Sun rising in the East and setting in the West. Therefore in Astrology we acceptthe Sun as a planet rotating like other planets. Tfi.r& wqh dffi, gqRqd: Rgftqlh-rn'Ift, Tqfiqtretq.ffirdlttd||nII '

According to principles of Astrology, the character of planets located on either side of a house has to be its taken into account to assess results. If a house is hemmed in betweennatural maleficsits advancement. is destroyed. (In this connection the view of the author of 'fatakadesa Marga' is as follows : If all the malefics surround a Bhava on both sides,occupy the 4th and 8th housesreckonedfrom the same,the annihilation of the Bhavawill be the result.But if, the beneficstake the place of the malefics, the prosperity of the Bhava is assured.)

Adhiyoga has been acclaimedas a very beneficial Yogaby almost all authoritative astrologicalworks, for affluence, good health and longevity. The Chandraadhiyoga is formed when benefics(Mercury,Jupiter and Venus) are posited in the 6th,7th and the 8th houses with referenceto the Moon. (There is an Adhiyoga known as Lagna-adhiyogafor the formation of which haveto be insimilar positionswithreference the benefics to the Lagna).The result of Adhiyoga hasbeendescribed as under"The personwill be polite and trustworthy, will have an enjoyable and huppy life, full of luxuries and affluence,will inflict defeats on his enemies,will be healthy and will live long." In this Yoga the Lagna or the Moon is not actually surrounded by the benefics on both sides but they (Moon and Lagna) receivebenefic influence on both sides(i.e.on the 2nd and L2th housesto them),because of the aspectsof beneficsfrom their position in the 6th

and 8th houses.This principle can be advantageously applied for the judgement of any of the house in the horoscope.If there are beneficsin the 6th and the 8th housesfrom a Bhava (house)they will be aspectingthe to 12th and 2nd houseswith reference that housewhich will be tantamount to their being present there-and by such disposition the significationsof the house will get boosted.If, however, there are malefics in the 6th and 8th from the Moon, the Lagna or any other house, the resultswill be quite opposite. Comments-The presenceof Jupiter in the 6th or 8th with referenceto the Moon, Lagna or any other house will servethe purpose of this principle. Though suchdispositionwill not go under the term'Adhiyoga', the houses2nd and 12th to the Moon, Lagta or any other house with referenceto which Jupiter is in 6th or 8th, will receive his benign aspect (the 2nd and L2th will receivethe 9th and 7th housesaspector the 5th and 7th houseaspectof Jupiter,when he is in the 6th or 8th house respectively. Here I cannot help raising one very important point. It has been mentioned in almost all classicalworks of Hindu Astrology that if there are no planets in the 2nd known and 12th from the Moon, a very inauspiciousYoga as'Kemadruma (fuql is formed. The result of this Yoga has been given by'JatakadesaMarga' as under"The man born in Kemadruna Yogawill always be intent on other people'swives, desirousof other's food, engaged in doing wicked and unrighteous deeds, plunged in debts and indulging in sensualpleasures." There will be no Kemadruma Yoga if there is any planet in Kendra from the Moon or if the Moon is in Kendra from Lagna.My view is that thereshould be no

44

Basic concepts prediclive of astrology

Kemadruma Yoga also when there is ChandraAdhiyoga. Otherwise how qan the extraordinary good resultsascribedto this Yogabe realised? We would like to mention one more point to the principle given under sloka 24. The beneficresults of the aspectsof beneficsin the 6th and 8th with reference to the Lagna, Moon or any other house will materialise only when the L2th and 2nd houses from them are vacant or occupiedby somebeneficplanet only. Even the Lagna-Adhiyoga and Chandra-Adhiyoga are" said to be vitiated if any of the planets in the 6th, 7th or 8th are aspectedby or associatedwith any malefic.

The author, therefore, strongly advises that while the assessing strength or weaknessand auspiciousness of or inauspiciousness a house or planet, the aspects falling on the 2nd and L2th house to them should be have the sameimpact on kept in view as such aspects the concernedhouse or the planet as if the aspecting planetsare presentin thosehouses(2nd and 12th).We have chosenthe name of theseaspectsss 'qlQffi EF' (ParshwagaminiAspect).

A planet is renderedweak when he is placed in an enemy sign. Predictions about the results of a planet are alwaysbasedon his strength.Thus to determinethe strengthof a planet we should always take into account by whether he is in conjunctionwith or aspected a planet inimical to him or not. As many enemy planets he is conjoinedwith, as much weak he is rendered. Illustration erdlE|6tu[{-

The Moon is consideredweak if she is very near to the Sun. From the 6th Tithi before Amavasya (in Krishna Paksha)up to the 6th Tithi in Shukla Paksha after Amavasya, the Moon is treated as weak and lacks PakshaBala.Therefore,even if the Moon be in a Kendra to Lagna in his sign of exaltationbut be weak in PakshaBaIa,she will be devoid of strength.Thus inspite of occupying an auspicioushouseor being in his own sign or sign of exaltationthe Moon would be weak if she is not strong in Paksha Bala. In other words Paksha Bala is of supreme importance than Rasi Bala or Bhava Bala for the Moon. For example, if in any nativity the Sun be in the 10th in his sign of exaltation (Aries) and the Moon also be in her sign of exaltation (Vrishabha)in the 1Lth, the Moon inspite o f b e i n g i n a n a u s p i c i o u sh o u s e i n h e r s i g n o f exaltation wouid be weak (in Paksha Bala) because of her nearnessto the Sun.

To or darkness as their distinguishing characteristics. us it appears that Jupiter and the Sun in all the three horoscopes moulded the qualities of the natives.It will be seenin the horoscopeof MahatrnaGandhi that ]upiter aspectsthe Lagna and Mercury the lord of the 9th. In the horoscope of Swami Vivekananda the important roles are played by the Sun in the Lagna, Jupiter in the 10th and the Moon and Saturn in the 9th. But for Jupiter in the LOth,he would not have been able to reach the dizzy heights of fame and spirituality which he achieved in his short span of life. The Moon and Saturn in the 9th becamethe cause of his renunciation of the worldly comforts. In the horoscopeof Sri RamakrishnaParamahansa it is Jupiter, the Satvik planet and real significator of universal Dharma and spirituality, who played the most significant role. It is evident in the chart that Jupiter aspectsthe 9th (houseof Dharma) and Lagna, lord of the 9th Mercury and the Atmakaraka Sun. Ketu in the 4th also lent its full support to religious and ascetic inclinations of this great saint as the significator of deep meditation. In the chart of Mahatma Gandhi, the Sun is in the L2th house powerfully aspected by ]upiter who, though a natural benefic,is lord of the 3rd and 6th. Jupiter is in the 10th from the Moon aspectedby Saturn. This gives considerablespirituality. fupiter here may be taken in the 8th house in the bhava chart. The soul of Gandhiji, with all its egoism,self-love and deep seateddesiresis vested in the Sun. As he is in the 1.2th,he gives him spirituality. Mercury in the Ascendant produces keennessof mind. The 10th is Karmasthana.Rahu's location there is indicative of g o o d w o r k a m o n g s t m a s s e s .G a n d h i j i a l w a y s advocatednon violence or ahimsa.

For example, if the lord of the Llth house conjoins with the lord of the 2nd, it becomes a powerful Dhana Yoga (wealth giving combination) as both the lords of the 2nd and 11th are significators of gains of wealth ( lord of the 2nd is accordinglycalled Dhanadhipati and lord of the 1Lth is known as Labhadhipati). On the basis of this principle, we are of the view that when Venus and the lord of the 2nd conjoin in the 12th house, there will be abundance of luxuries, comforts and plea s u re s .A s t h e s e ca n n o t b e o b ta i n e d without money, the Yoga provides plentiful money for such enjoyments.This will be further discussedin the next sloka.

From the rules enunciatedby us in the previous sloka, it becomesquite clear that if Venus be in the L2th house and lord of the 12th be also there, Venus will become a wealth giving planet (errcr+-o). The reason for this is that Venus, the significator of luxuries in such circumstances, will not only have closerelationship with the houseof luxuries, comforts and pleasuresbut also with its lord. Our view that the placementof Venus in the 12th is very beneficial and gives rise to Dhana yoga is supported by the

If Leo or Virgo be the Ascendantand Saturnaspects the Ascendantas well aslord of the Ascendant,namely the Sun or Mercury, the subject suffers from a long lasting disease. The reasonfor suchan effectis obvious. Saturn, in Astrology has been named as Rogakaraka (one who causesdiseases). Therefore,Saturn's aspect on both the Ascendant and its lord will cause some disease. When Saturnbe the lord of the houseof disease, namely the 6th (which is the case in Leo and Virgo nativities), there can be no doubt at all about Saturn's role in causingdiseases. One more thing to be noted in this connectionis that if Rahu or Ketu be posited in the 6th, Saturn will representtheseshadowy planets also. In such circumstancesit should not be surprising if Saturn as Rogakaraka,lord of the Roga (frr)house and

Our purpose in drawing attention of the readers to this sloka is that sincethe fact of being a bastard is concerned with the birth, such matters should be examined from the Lagna. It is for this reasonthat the learnedsin Astrology h a v e a d v i s e d t h a t t h e s o u r c e so f l i v e l i h o o d o r professionof a personshould be determinedfrom the 10th housewhich is most powerful as reckonedfrom the Lagna, Chandra Lagna or Surya Lagna. As an extention to this a particular house is to be adjudged from the Lagna, Chandra Lagna or Surya Lagna, the outcome,should be predictedfrom the strongestout of the three Lagnas or from the majority of the three Lagnas.

Shri B h a s i n h a s sta te d th a t a h o u se i s to be evaluatedwith referenceto all the three Lagnas.The outcome should be predicted from the strongest of the three Lagnas or from the majority of the three Lagnas. This is becausethe dispositions of planets would be d i f f e r e n t fro m th e th re e L a g nas. For example,while analysing a horoscopefrom the Lagna we find that lord of the Lagna is in the Sth house, a very good position for him. But if the Moon is in the 6th house, lord of Lagna may be in the 12th to the Moon. Actually what we shouid do is that we should examine all matters concerning the horoscopewith referenceto all the three Lagnas, and then decide by analysing all the results.For example,if longevity is poor f rom t h e L a g na , i t i s D e e rg h a A yu ( good longevity) from Chandra Lagna and fairly good from Surya Lagna we should conclude that the native will have long life. If longevity is very good from the Lagna, hnd poor from both the Chandra and Surya Lagnas, we should declare that it would be about medium. The Lagna is of first importance becauseit is fixed for the exact time of birth. The Chandra L a g n a o c cu p i e s th e se co n d p o sition of importance as the Moon remains in a sign for about 21/z days.The Surya Lagna should be given the third place of importance as the Sun remains in a sign for about a month. As the duration of a Lagna is about two to two and a half hours and all persons born during this period will have the same Lagna. The number of persons born with the sarne Chandra Lagnh will be around 24 times more and the number of personswith the sameSurya Lagna will be around 700 times more. Thus we can understand that the birth Lagna is of prime importance amongst the three Lagnas.

From the Chandra Lagna the 5th house falls in Scorpiothe lord of which is Mars, who is associated with malefic Rahu.The 5th houseis aspectedby Saturn and Rahu.Thus the 5th houseand its lord areboth incapable of giving any child. As for ]upiter, though he is in his own sign and is regrograde, he is in the 6th from Chandra Lagna. Thus there is little possibility of the native having any child. If Jupiter helps for any child to be born, the malefic influenceswhich are many, would not let them survive.

The 5th lord is not very badly wounded because the aspectof Jupiter.Only of the Karaka Jupiter remains unscathed.

So we may assume that the Lagna is influencedby Mars. (b) The lord of ChandraLagna the Sun is in the 3rd along with the lord of 3rd Mercury.

Brihatfataka-The Moon and Venusin even signs with Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and the Lagna in odd signs causethe formation of a twin embryo. The rising sign and the Moon being in even signs aspectedby any male planet also cause twins. Mercury, Mars, ] u p it er a n d t h e La g n a b e i n g i n e ve n signs and possessed strength likewise lead to a twin foetus of being conceivedin the womb. There will be a trio of embryos conceived when Mercury in his own Navamsa aspectsall planets (this is not possible as Mercury can never aspectthe Sun) and the Lagna if the Lagna and all the planets occupy Navamsas belonging to dual signs. Saravali- If the Sun and Jupiter be in Gemini or Sagittarius in aspect to Mercury, birth of two male twins be predicted. TWofemale twins will be born if Venus, Mars and the Moon be in Piscesor Virgo in aspectof Mercury. Should the Lagna and Moon be in evensignsand be aspected a strong planet,then there are twins in the by womb one male and onefemale. Similar resultsfollow if the Moon and Venus in evensignswhile JupiteaMars, are Mercuryand the Lagnabe in odd signsor commonsigns and be strong.

Similarly if Saturn be in the Lagna in the sign Pisces and be aspectedby the Sun and Mars, the native will be lame. The rule given in the above sloka is operative in both the cases. When the malefics aspectthe Moon in his own sign, the fourth sign's part of the body gets affected adversely and the curvature of the chest (causedby Mars) is quite understandable. man with curvature A of the chestis called a hunchback.The reasonis that the sign occupiedby the Lagnarepresentsthe relevant part of the Kalapurusha and when that sign and its lord fall under malevolent influence,it gets diseased or deformed. The same rule will apply if lord of the Lagna may not be occupying the Ligna; but both the Lagna and its lord be under malefic influences.

If Aquarius (Kumbha) be the Ascendantor Lagna with Jupiter in the 12th conjoined with or aspected by Rahu, the native will be devoid of wealth and moral character.The reasonfor this is that Jupiter is a natural significator of wealth (Dhanakaraka) lord more so for AquariusAscendantbeing and becomes of the 2nd and 1Lth house.When such a Jupiteris in the 1.2thin his sign of debilitation, there is no doubt that the native will be deprived of wealth. A debilitated Jupiter with the depraved planet Rahu in the house of will make the native loss, expenditure and excesses, depraved and perverted.Sucha personwill commit the most'sinful and immoral deeds. In this connection it is important to note that the 12th is the house of loss and expenditure (<<).

The housewhich signifieslongevity, should also be treated as the house of death because the end of longevity is death. Therefore,when we are to ascertain a s t o h o w a p e rso n w o u l d me e t h i s death, the dispositions of both the eighth house and the Lagna should be taken into consideration.

Saturn who is in the 8th aspectsMars who is lord of the Sth as well as of the Lagna. Thus Saturn has influence on the 8th, lord of the 8th and lord of the Lagna. No other palnet has so much influenceon the factors which could be responsiblefor the death of the native. Thus it is Saturn who indicatesthe mode of death.Such a Saturn whose metal is iron and steel being lord of the 10th (Zenith) indicates that the death would be caused due to fall from a great height. SecondlySaturn also being the lord of 11th (which is significatior of a costly conveyance)also indicates a conveyanceas another cause of death. As the L0th house (Zenith) is under the evil influence of Saturn, Rahu and the Sun, therefore, there is indication of fall from the great height. Thus Saturn demonstratesthat the death was caused by the fall of an aircraft which was flying at a great height. That it is important to take the Lagna into account to determine the caUseof death, is also confirmed by 'Sarvartha Chintamani' -

There is mutual aspectbetween DhanakarakaJupiter and Yogakaraka Venus, the latter being lord of the 4th and 9th from the Chandra Lagna. The Lagna is also aspectedby Mars lord of the L0th,the planet which forms RuchakaYoga. There is also mutual aspectbetween Saturn and Mars the creators of Sasa and Ruchaka Yogas. There is VipareetaRajayogaalsoasa result of conjunctionof the lord of L2th Saturn and the lord of 8th Mercury (reckoned from the Chandra Lagna), in the Lagna. Saturn in his own sign in Lagnagivesrise to a powerful Rajayoga(accordingto Brihat |ataka). Phaladeepika-The author of this work has called VipareetaRajayogaby three different namesbased on the lordship of the 6th, 8th and 12th house.

If there be benefics in the 6th,7t!rrand 8th (all the three houses) from the Moon, the Yoga so formed is called Adhiyoga or Chandra-adhiyoga'This is one of the most beneficiyal Yoga and makes the native wealthy, famous and longlived.

Shri Bhasinvery rightly claimsthat Adhiyoga is based on the'Parshavagamini Drishti' (wvffift gfu), that is aspects either side of the Lagnaor Chandral^agna. on If there aremaleficsin the 6th,Tthand 8th from the l,agna or Chandra trg a the resultswill be quite opposite. Adhiyoga is not formed when there are benefic planetsin the Lagna or ChandraLagna or around them although every houseprospersbecause the strenght of of the Lagna (that is, on their either side). Similarly a planet gets more beneficence it has benefic planets if with it or on his either side, or in 6th, 7th and 8th to him.

On this very principle are based the well known Yogaslike Anapha, SunaphaDurudhura, Shubhavesi, Shubhavasiand Shubhakartari. These Yogas are in of respectof the Moon and Sun and the presence these Yogasimprove the structure of the horoscopeand the native getslong life and prosperity. Sunapha Yoga is formed when there are planets (exceptingthe Sun) in the 2nd house from the Moon. The results are self earned property, kingly status, or his equal,intelligence,wealth and good reputation. Anapha Yoga is formed when there are planets in the L2th to the Moon. The resultsof this Yogaare-well good reputation, formed organs,majesticappearance, politeness,generosity,respect,fondness of dress and In sensualpleasures. later life renunciation and austerity. Durudhura Yoga- If thereareplanetson either side of the Moon, this Yoga is caused.The result are-the native is handsome. He will be blessedwith much wealth and conveyances. According to "Brihat lataka" edited by P.S.Sastri, published by I\a/sRanjan Publications if'the planet in the 2nd or L2th be Mars, the person will be energetic, powerful, wealthy and bold. If it be Mercury,he will be skilful, eloquentand proficientin the arts.If it befupiter, he witl be wealthy, virtuous, happy and honoured by the sovereign.If it be Venushe will be very rich and a sensualist.If Saturn be the planet in the 2nd or 12th house from the Moon, the person will enjoy other people's wealth, clothes etc., will engagehimself in various occupationsand will be the leader of men.

Similarly we should consider such position with referenceto the Lagna. If there be malefic planets in the 2nd and 12th from the Lagna, the yoga so formed will be Papa Kartari Yoga. If there be benefics in these positions the Yoga so formed will be Shubha Kartari Yoga. If there be a benefic in the 2nd from the Lagna, the Yogawill be known a Sushubha.If there be a benlfic in the 12th to the Lagna,there is no yoga as the 12th is treatedas an inauspicioushouse. The results of various Yogas according to phala Deepika by Dr. G.S.Kapoor, published by I\{s Ranjan Publicationsare as underShubha Vesi - Handsome,huppy, learned,religious minded and ruler. Shubha Ubhayachari-Good speaker,renowned, honoured, wealthy and well formed limbs. PapaVesi - Defamesothers,without any lustre, bad company and objectionable morals. Papa Vasi - Back-biter, treacherous,friend of notorious personsand of bad character. PapaUbhayachari -No education,unfortunate and poor/ unhappy and ill famed. Shubha Kartari-Longlived, huppy, wealthy and famous and free from enemiesand diieases. Papa Kartari-Poor, unhappy, deformed limbs, shortJived and deprived of wife and children. As already stated above, the evaluation of other housesand planets should be done in similar manner. We know we have deviatedfrom the main subject,but it will be very useful for the readersto know the effects of planets and their influencesby aspect on either side of a house or planet. A house or a planet with benefic influenceson its both sidesgainsstrengthfor the good. The results will be opposite if the house or planet is surrounded by malefic influences.

A Yoga for imprisonment is formed when Rahu aspects occupies 12th houseor if he aspects or the lord of the 12th or be associated with him, and lbrd of the 12th be weak. The 12th house inter alia signifies imprisonment and Rahu is Karakafor imprisoiment. As the L_agna representsthe body, the yoga would be strong if Lagna is also involved in it. In this connection the horoscopeof Dr. Rajendra Prasadmay be seenunder Sloka43.In this horoscope 53h" being 10th from Mars, the lord of 1,2thisexerting his malefic influence on the Lagna. The occupation of the 12thby the Sun also harmi the house.The lord of 1.2this aspectedby Saturn also. Thus the yoga for imprisonment is quite strong but since Jupiter-is in the 10th from the 12th, the imprisonment was for a good cause,that is, for the serviceof the Motherland. Similarly in the horoscope of Mahatma Gandhi under Sloka35, Rahu is in the 10th from Mercurv the lord of 12th. Further the 12th is occupied bf the malefic Sun, lord of the 12th is associated with Mars and is hemmed in between the Sun and Saturn.Here also lord of the 12th is aspectedby Jupiter, so the imprisonment was for a good cause.

Dalmia died very disappointed.Dr. B.V.Raman in his book 'Notable horoscopes'has given the reasonfor imprisonmentasfollows-without any rich inheritance, t o bec o m e a b u s i n e ssma n w i th su ch colossal commitments, is not an easy joke. This remarkable achievement was rendered possible by the unique disposition of Saturn, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, causing a formidable set of Dhana and Raja Yogasof a dynamic nature. In the Navamsa Jupiter's exaltationin the 10th houseis of immensesignificance Though in further enhancingthe worth of the horoscope. he (Jupiter)is exalted in Navamsa,he could not save the native from incarcerationbecauseperhaps of his quardrangular ownership (Kendra-adhipatiDosha), with Rahu and being subjectto KartriYoga association by the lords of 6th and 12th." Dr. Raman has not given any importanceto the 12th houseand the L2th lord for being involved in getting him imprisonment. This should have been done. We are inclined to agreemore with the theory of Shri Bhasinthan that of Dr. Raman. for Jupitercould be surely responsible his inappropriate deeds but involvement of the 12th house,Saturn and for Rahuis very necessary thenativebeingsentto prison asthe 12thhouseis undoubtedlya very vital significator of confinementand imprisonment.
