FROM THE ANNOTATOR
Sri N.N. Krisna Rao, the astrologer and scholar from Mumbai,
collected many classics on astrology from South India and after
editing important points, translated them into English.
Here are the three important works of Kerala astrology. In
the original classics, the slokas were not in order. Sri Krisna Rao
serialised the slokas and thus did a yeoman's work. We have
tried to enrich the original translation by adding important notes
and quotations from the other famous classics. Points of
contradiction have been elaborated and majority opinion has been
upheld. The example charts have been added in support of the
principles.
There is enough material in the book for the beginners to
consolidate their knowledge and comprehend the principles. The
advanced students will find the book useful in the sense that there
is enough material for research purposes and something new can
be churned out in the form of principles. We suppose our readers
will be enlightened by these illuminating pearls of Kerala
astrology.
The publishers M!s. Ranjan Publications have presented
this unique work in a decent manner. Hence they also deserve
our thanks.

KERALA JYOTISHA
FIRST HOUSE
(1) In a birth horoscope the trikonas or trine houses
are the abode of Laxmi, the goddess of wealth and the
kendras or quadrants are the abode of Vishnu, the god of
existence. The trikonas bestow wealth by one's own merits
and the kendras are the seat of material gains or prosperity.
Therefore the combinations or relations of lords of trikonas
and kendras bestow royal life or Rajayoga on the native.
Notes- Two planets are related when
(a) they aspect each other,
(b) one planet aspects the other planet,
(c) the two planets are in each other's signs,
(d) the two planets are in each other's nakshatras
(constellations),
(e) the two planets are in kendras or quadrants to
each other.
(2) If in the same sign or rasi one planet is debilitated
or neecha and the other planet is exalted or uchcha, then the
neecha planet loses his debilitation according to Maharishi
Parasara and Maharishi Vashishta.
8 A Glimpse of
Notes :-If Mercury and Venus are in Pisces, then
Mercury loses his debilitation because he is with exalted
Venus, thus Mercury bestows good results.
(3) If a planet is debilitated, then he loses his
debilitation, if his lord of debilitation or exaltation is in a
kendra or quadrant from the ascendant or Lagna. Thus the
planet loses his maleficence.
Note :-'Phala Dee pika' (7 /26) says in this respect-

tf II
If a planet is debilitated at birth, then
(i) if the lord of debilitation sign is in a kendra from the
Lagna or
(ii) if the lord of his debilitation sign is in a quadrant from
the Moon or
(iii) if the exaltation lord of this debilitated planet is in
kendra from the Lagna or
(iv) if the exaltation lord of this debilitated planet is in a
kendra from the Moon, the debilitation of this planet
is cancelled by any one of these conditions and the
native enjoys Neecha Bhanga Rajayoga.
'Phala Deepika' (7 /27) again says-
rR" I
g 'tl';flqdf II
If the exaltation and debilitation lords of the debilitated
planet are in quadrants to each other then it is a Neecha
Bhang a Rajayoga.
See "Phala Deepika" translated by Dr. G.S. Kapoor, published by
MIS Ranjan Publications, 16 Ansari Road, New Delhi- 2
Kerala Astrology
Again 'Phala Deepika' says (7/28)-

If the debilitation lord of a planet aspects this
debilitated planet then it is a rajayoga called Neecha Bhang a
Rajayoga. It is not as good in the 6,8 or 12 house as is in an
auspicious house.
(4) The native gets wealth and prosperity after the age
of 16 years, if the Lagna lord is in the sign of a benefic planet
aspected by or conjoined to another benefic planet.
(5) The native becomes prosperous and wealthy
after the age of 20 years, if the Lagna lord is in the 2nd
or the lOth house and the 2nd lord is in the ascendant or
Lagna.
(6) The native becomes prosperous and wealthy after
the age of 30 years if the strong Lagna lord or his navamsa
lord is in his sign of exaltation, in a quadrant or in the 11th
house.
(7) The native enjoys prosperity and wealth
throughout life if the Lagna lord is in his own navamsa, in
his exaltation navamsa, in vargottama or in a friend's
navamsa and is also influenced by a benefic planet.
(8) The native does not enjoy long life, if any planet
other than the Lagna lord is exalted.
(9) The native is of mediocre wealth if any planet other
than the 9th lord is exalted.
(10) The native enjoys prosperity, fame, honour, wealth
and estates if the Lagna lord is in his extreme exaltation
degrees, is in a quadrant or trine and is aspected by or
conjoined with a benefic or the Lagna lord conjoined with

example of this combination.

Notes- The combinations at (8) and (9) do not seem
to apply by any angle and we do not agree to them.
(11) If there is a strong malefic planet in the Lagna
lord's sign of debilitation or in the12th to the Lagna then
the native passes his whole life away from his birth place.
(12) If the Lagna lord is in his friend's sign, own sign
or exaltation sign and is aspected by a planet also in one of
these states, the native passes his life at his native place.
Notes- The combinations at (11) and (12) have enough
reasons for their usefulness.
SECOND HOUSE
(I) The 2nd house signifies constitution of the face,
right eye, vocal ability, education, wisdom, gold, ability to
learn mantras etc.
(2) The 2nd lord conjunct the lOth lord and both
posited in the 5th house, then the native is a rich man.
(3) The native is wealthy if the Lagna is Gemini or
Virgo and Mercury in the Lagna is aspected by or conjoined
to Venus and Saturn.
(4) The native is wealthy if the Lagna is Sagittarius or
Pisces and Jupiter there is aspected by or conjoined to the

Aquarius and Saturn is there, aspected by or conjoined to
Mercury and Venus.
(6) The native is wealthy if the Lagna is Taurus or Libra
and Venus is there, aspected by or conjoined to Saturn and
Mars.
Notes- In all the above combinations the Lagna lord,
the 2nd lord and the lords of the trikonas or trines are
functional. We know that trikonas or trines are the seat of
Laxmi, the goddess of wealth.
12 A Glimpse of
(7) If the 2nd lord, the 9th lord and the 11th lord are in
quadrants from the Moon, while Venus is the 2nd and 9th
lord, then the native is the king of an empire.

only where the 9th and the 2nd lord is Venus and the llthlord
is the Moon.
(8) If the 2nd lord is exalted or in own sign in a
quadrant aspected by a benefic, then the native not only
commands honour and prestige but his face also glitters

endeavours and effortsifthere is exchange of signs between
the Lagna lord and the 2nd lord.
(10) If the Lagna and the Lagna lord both are in chara
or cardinal signs, then the native may earn through foreign
contacts.
Kerala Astrology 13
Notes- The yoga at (10) might had been true in olden
times but now a days it rarely gives such an earning.
Therefore this yoga seems to be a hypothetical product.
(11) If the Lagna and the Lagna lord both are in sthira
or fixed signs, then the native may earn in his own
country.
(12) The native is financially well off if the 2nd lord,
the planet in the 2nd house, the planet aspecting the
2nd house and Jupiter, the karaka of 2nd house, all are
strong.
(13) If the two planets in the yoga at (12) are strong
and the two are weak or all the four are weak, then there is
no fructification of the combination or yoga.
(14) If the 2nd lord with a malefic is in the 6th, 8th or
12th house or the 2nd lord is in a malefic sign aspected
by a malefic, then the native possesses a low. financial
status.
(15) If the planets in the 2nd house, the planets
aspecting the 2nd house or the 2nd lord, then in their dasa
when the dasa lord contacts Jupiter, the native is benefitted

house, the Lagna lord is in the Lagna and the 11th lord is in

the 6th, 8th or 12th house, the 12th lord is in the 2nd house
and the 11th lord is also in the 6th, 8th, or 12th house.

conjoined with the malefics and devoid of benefic aspects,
is in the 6th, 8th or 12th house. If the 2nd lord is in friendly,
own or exaltation sign in these houses then there is no such
defect.

18 A Glimpse of

others for the food if the 2nd lord is in an enemy sign or in

Notes- The important point here is that even though
the 5th house and its lord are spoilt but the karaka of
children, Jupiter is giving enough number of progeny by
being influenced by benefics and occupying a quadrant or
trine.

is with Rahu and the 9th lord is in the 9th house.

A Glimpse of
Notes-Mars in the 5th aborts or destroys children
but in the end the native succeeds due to the aspect of
Jupiter and thus, resorting to remedial measures. Aries and
Scorpio happen to be own signs of Mars and when Leo
and Pisces are on the 5th cusp, Mars is the Lagna lord and
he refrains from doing the mischief.

by the benefics or the 5th lord is aspected by Jupiter.

as we have seen in the chart above.
(31) The native does not get progeny in spite of

had two issues but neither of them could survive. The 5th
lord is in 8th from the 5th in conjunction to the Sun
and Mars and Jupiter is also aspected by the Sun and Mars.
Thus the lord of the 5th and the karaka of the 5th both are
afflicted.

in a male sign. Similarly the issue is a daughter if the female
5th lord is in a female sign.

to elder brother. If this yoga falls in the 8th house the native

and unrest if the 6th house is occupied by the Sun; the same
results to mother if the Moon is in the 6th; to brother if

(a) In the eighth lord's dasa and bhukti if the 8th
lord is in the 6th, 8th or the 12th house.
Kerala Astrology 49
(b) In the dasa of Saturn's dispositor and the

(c) In the dasa of the lOth lord's dispositor and
the bhukti of Rahu.
(d) In the dasa and bhukti of Lagna lord if it falls

(e) In the dasa of the weakest planet with the
Lagna or the 8th lord posited in a quadrant or

(f) If Saturn is in the 8th, then in his or the Lagna
lord's dasa.
(g) If the 7th and the 8th lords exchange signs,
then in the 8th lord's dasa and bhukti of the
7th lord.
(h) If the 8th and the 9th lords are in the 11th then
in the dasa and bhukti of one of the two.
(6) If Jupiter is in the 7th combust or debilitated and
Saturn aspects the Lagna, then the native is short lived.
Notes- The 2nd and the 7th lords are the classical
marakas or death inflicting planets and it is surprising the
author has not said any thing about the two.
(7) If the 5th lord is conjunct some planets, add the
dasa years of the 5th lord and the other planets and divide
it by 12, note the remainder. If the 5th lord is alone, divide
his years by 12, note the remainder. In both the cases the
remainder points the year of death of the parents, or count
the sign from Aries for the remainder, the dasa of the lord
of that sign is fatal for the parents.
Note - Our experience does not approve the above
results.
(8) If the 9th lord is conjunct with Rahu in a sign, the
father of the native dies in that sign lord's dasa.
50 A Glimpse of
(9) If a benefic planet is conjunct with Rahu, then the
parents of the native may die in this benefic planet's dasa.
Note-We are unable to catch up this, perhaps this is
peculiar to Kerala Astrology.
(10) If the Sun is in the 5th or the 9th and Saturn dasa
is current at birth, then the native's father may die in this
dasa.
(11) Count (i) from the Lagna (ii) from the sign where
the 9th lord is or (iii) from the sign where the 5th lord is, to
the sign where the 8th lord is and divide it by 3. If the
remainder is 1, then infer that the father of the native is not
alive. If the remainder is 2 or 3, then the father is alive.
As example we take the chart No.16.
Lagna
Rahu
Sat Ketu
Mars Sun
Venus Jup
Moon Mer
In this chart the 8th lord from the Lagna is in the 8th.
Counting from the Lagna, the number is 8 which divided
by 3 gives 2 as remainder. This shows the father of the native
at birth was alive which is correct.
The 9th lord is Saturn, who is also the 8th lord,
therefore the number is 1, which is indivisible by 3 or the
remainder can be taken as 1. Therefore the result is not
correct. The father of the native was alive at his birth and is
still alive.
Kerala Astrology 51
Counting from the 5th lord the number is 4, which
gives remainder 1 which also gives incorrect result.
Below is another chart No. 17, where the 8th lord is in
the 9th house.

Counting from the Lagna, the number is 9, which
divided by 3 gives 0 as remainder. We don't have any clue
for 0.
The 5th lord is in the 6th. Therefore the number is 4
which gives remainder 1. The result is incorrect, as the father
of the native was alive at his birth.
The 9th lord is in the 11th, therefore the number is 11.
So the remainder is 2, which gives the correct answer.
We deduce from these examples that the principles
enunciated are not fully correct.
(12) For finding the aliveness of mother, count from
the tenanted sign of the 4th lord to the sign of the 8th lord
and proceed as told at (11).
Note- Readers may work on some charts for the
efficacy of this principle.
(13) If Mars dasa is the 5th from the birth dasa or
Jupiter's is the 6th or Saturn's is the 4th or Rahu's is the
52 A Qlimp;e of
5th, then the native may die in that dasa.
(14) The life span is short up to 32nd year, from 32 to
70 years it is medium life span, above 70 it is full life span
and above 100 it is grand life span.
(15) Scholars estimate the life span from the yogas
present in the chart and from the dasas and bhuktis. There
is no definite method to assess the life span

NINTH HOUSE
(I) The ninth house signifies father, preceptor, grand
children, emotions, good qualities of the native, worship,
meditation, leadership, sacrifices, religion, maternal uncle,
fate etc.
(2) If Jupiter is in the 9th, the 9th lord in a quadrant
and the Lagna lord is strong, then the native is highly
prosperous. As an example we look at the following chart

native prospers after the 20th year of age.

and the Moon is in the 9th, then the native is highly
prosperous and lucky.
(6) If the Lagna lord is in the 9th, the 9th lord is in the
11th and Jupiter in the 7th, the native is extremely rich and
has comforts of all types of conveyances.

benefic, the native's good luck descends through his father.
(8) If the 9th lord is aspected by a benefic and this
benefic is in a benefic navamsa and associated with the 3rd
lord, the native prospers through his brothers.
(9) If Mercury is in deep exaltation and the 9th lord is
in the 9th, the native is prosperous after 36 years of age.
(10) If the 4th lord is in the 9th, Jupiter and Venus are
in benefic signs and the 9th lord is in 1st, 5th or the 9th
house, the native enjoys fast moving conveyances.
(11) If the 4th lord or Jupiter is with a benefic in the
9th in a benefic sign, the native enjoys conveyances.
Chart No. 19 is of the famous actor Shivaji Ganeshan

(12) If the Moon with a benefic is in a benefic sign in
the 2nd or the 4th house, the native enjoys and owns
conveyances.
(13) If Jupiter and the 4th lord with a malefic are in a
malefic sign in the 6th, 8th or the 12th house then the native
does not own conveyances.
( 14) If the 9th lord is in the 11th, Venus in the 9th
and Jupiter in a quadrant, the native prospers through his father.
(15) If Mars and Ketu are in the 2nd or the 9th and the
9th lord is in Capricorn or Aquarius, the father of the native
is extremely poor.
(16) The native will never be prosperous, if the 9th
lord or 9th house is related to more than one malefics and
the 9th lord is weaker than the Lagna lord.

56 A Glimpse of
(23) If the 9th lord or the Sun is aspected by a malefic
and also conjunct Saturn or some malefic, the native dies
soon after birth.
(24) The same result follows if the 9th lord or the Sun
is in debilitation or cruel navamsa and conjunct Saturn.
(25) The same result follows if the 9th and the 4th lords
are in the invisible half of the natal chart and are conjunct
with or aspected by malefics without any benefic aspects
and the Lagna lord is weak.
(26) If the Lagna lord and the 7th lord are in
quadrants/ trines and their dispositors are in the Lagna, the
father of the native dies soon after the native's birth.
Notes- We are unable to understand the logic behind
the yoga at (26).
(27) If the Lagna lord, the 4th lord and the 9th lord are
in quadrants/trines, the parents of the native die in their
dasa bhukties.
(28) If the Sun in deep exaltation is related to the 9th
lord and Jupiter, the native worships his father.
See the chart No. 20. The Sun is in exaltation and is conjunct
the Lagna and the 9th lord in a quadrant aspected by Jupiter.
We have seen the native abusing his fathermany times, perhaps
due to the aspect of Saturn on the Sun and Mars being in Taurus.

(34) If the 11th lord is in the 4th aspected by the benefics,
the native gets a heavy amount of money effortlessly.
Notes- This may be by some speculative deals.

(36) If the 9th lord and Jupiter in a benefic sign or
navamasa are in the lOth aspected by a benefic, the native
is wealthy and noble person.
(37) If the Lagna of the native is the 6th, 8th or the
12th sign of his father, then there exists enemity from the
native towards the father.
If the Lagna of the native is the 2nd or the 1Oth from
the Lagna of the father, then there is harmony.
(38) If the lord of the 3rd conjunct the 5th lord is in the
invisible half of the chart, the native is breast fed by a

Note- This yoga seeks attention of our readers.
(40) The native is issueless if the 5th lord is in a malefic
sign aspected by Saturn, though he may be strong being
aspected by a benefic.
(41) Ifth_e Lagna lord, the 6th lord and Saturn together
are in a quadrant/ trine, then in their dasa-bhuktis the native
may be imprisoned.
.TENTH HOUSE
(I) Ability, profession, state, prestige and honour, place
of residence, fame, charitable disposition, travels, means
of earning etc. are judged from the tenth house.
(2) If the Lagna and the 1Oth lord are in these houses
and one of the two is exalted, the native can achieve a lot
through his endeavours.
Notes- This yoga can only be present in Virgo and
Sagittarius Lagnas. Late-President Dr. Radhakrishnan's
chart has exalted Mercury in Lagna and he rose to such a
position due to his literary endeavours.
(3) If the 1Oth lord is conjunct the Sun, the Moon, Mars
and Mercury, the native earns through the king, government
or rich persons. If the 1Oth lord is conjunct Jupiter the native
earns through the king or government. If the 1Oth lord is
conjunct Saturn he may earn through Mlechhas (the persons
of low caste or other religions). If the 1Oth lord is conjunct
Rahu, the native may become rich by unscrupulous means.
(4) If the Sun is in the 1Oth or conjunct Mars and the
lOth lord is in a quadrant, the native is an authority to
punish cruelly the culprits. (Perhaps the native may be a
judicial officer).

quadrants/trines they bestow auspiciousness to the native.
(14) The native gives a lot in charities if the navamsa
lord of the 1Oth is related to the 6th lord or Saturn. Same are

(15) The native is a vagabond, without any profession
if the lOth lord is in a malefic sign and Saturn in the 1Oth is
conjunct a debilitated planet.
(16) The native is mischievous if the lOth and the 8th
lords exchange signs and one of the two is conjunct a malefic.
(17) The native is highly sexy and lascivious if the lOth
lord is in the 2nd aspected by Saturn and Mars and the 7th
lord is under malefic influences.
62 A Glimpse of
(18) The native takes a dip in holy rivers like the
Ganges if Rahu or the Moon is in the lOth house.

is in a cardinal navamsa. Fixed navamsa does not make
one to travel and in common navamsa the results are mixed.

Note- The above yoga may be inferred in the context
of profession. The travels may be on professional demands
otherwise one has to be at his job in a city daily by some
means of travel.
(25) If the exalted lOth lord is conjunct Jupiter and the
9th lord is in the lOth, the native is of charitable disposition,
prosperous and self proud.
(26) The native leads a comfortable life, if the Lagna
lord is in the quadrant other than the Lagna.

(2) If the planet in the 11th is exalted, in own sign or
friendly sign then there are various sources of income.
(3) The native gains from the father or paternal
relatives if the Sun is in the 11th house. If the Moon, through
mother and maternal relatives. If Mars, through brothers
and courage. If Mercury, through maternal uncle, wisdom
or logical approach. If Jupiter, the native gains through
persons in authority, through religious deeds or study. If
Venus, through women or through silver or pearl trading.
Saturn gives money by servants or by employing people.
Notes - These terms may be used in present context.
(4) The native gains from the person of the caste of the
planet in the 11th or the planet aspecting the 11th house.
(a) Royal planets-The Sun/Moon, gains from the
king/ government.
(b) Priestlyplanets-Jupiter/Venus, gains through
priests or Brahmins.
(c) Trading planet-Mercury, gams through
business or traders.
Kerala Astrology 65
(d) Low caste planets-Mars /Saturn, gains through
low caste people or Mlechhas.
Notes- Authorities on Astrology consider Mars a
warrior planet. Above indicated castes should be
interpreted professionally, not by the caste of birth.
(5) The Sun gives gains through distant relatives, the
Moon through mother and maternal relatives, Mars from
enemies. Mercury from maternal uncles or traders, Jupiter
through religious scriptures or religious activities, Venus
through women, poetry, acting and music and Saturn gives
gains through servants and agricultural pursuits.
(6) A benefic in the 11th gives income by the codified
means. A malefic in the 11th induces the native to earn
through the cruel and unscrupulous means. The native
adops fair as well as foul means to earn money. A strong
benefic in the 11th makes one wealthy by providing various
means of livelihood.
(7) If the lords of the 2nd, 11th and the Lagna and the
planets aspecting these houses are benefics, the native earns
money in a codified manner and spends the money for
charitable and social cause. If these planets are weak,
defeated in war, combust or debilitated in the sign or
navamsa, the native is poor.
(8) If the Moon or the Sun is the lord of the llthhouse
and is strong, the native is like a king. If Mars is in the 11th,
the native gets wealth through elder brother or agricultural
pursuits. Mercury in the 11th gives the wealth through
education or relatives; if it is Venus through wife and
precious gem stones and the Saturn gives earning through
low caste people.
(9) If the 11th lord is in a quadrant/ trine from the
Lagna or some malefic is in the 11th and these planets are
exalted or in own signs, the native is extremely wealthy.
66 A Glimpse of
For wealth we should not only judge from the Lagna
and 11th house but also by considering the sign occupied
by Jupiter as Lagna because Jupiter is the karaka of wealth.
Here are some of the quotations of "Sarvartha
Chintamani" how the native gets wealth or earns-
(i) The native gets wealth from his father if the Sun is
in the lOth from the Moon or the Lagna; from the mother if
the Moon is in the lOth from the Sun or the Lagna; from
enemies if Mars is in the 1Oth from the Lagna or the Moon
(Whoever is strong); from friends if Mercury is in the lOth
from the Moon or Lagna; from elder brothers if Jupiter is in
the lOthfrom the Lagna or the Moon; from women if Venus
and from servants or low caste people if Saturn is in the
lOth from the Moon or the Lagna.
(ii) The native gets monetary gains from the sources
mentioned, in the dasa and bhukti of these planets. If more
than one planets are in the 1Oth house then the native gains
in the dasas/bhuktis of all those planets.
(iii) If none of the planets is in the lOth from the Lagna,
the Sun and the Moon, then consider for the gains the lord
of the 1Oth sign and the navamsa he is placed in. If the 1Oth
lord or his navamsa lord is-
(a) The Sun-The native has monetary gains or
earnings through medicine, gold, water, travel for the cause
of war, ships, gems, pearls, gamble, speculation, advisory
capacity or counselling etc.
(b) The Moon-The native earns by the trade of
precious goods, agriculture, theatrical activities, grace of
authorities, trading of cloth etc.
(c) Mars-The native earns through dealings in metals
and tools, businesses involving fire and heat, promoting
Kerala Astrology 67
quarrels, acts of bravery, theft or black marketing etc.
(d) Mercury-The native earns by arts or drawing,
writing books, flower garlands, theatre business, recitation
of religious texts, astrology, business of flowers, teaching
etc.
(e) Jupiter-The native earns by consultancy, officiating
at government offices, the grace of learned and preachers,
teaching, pilgrimage, religious lecturing etc.
(f) Venus-The native earns by the sale-purchase of
precious gems, gold, trade of cattle and flowers, trade of
sweets and milk, from the grace of rich women etc.
(g) Saturn- The native earns by the low grade
professions, trade of wood or leather, craftsmanship, killing
birds and animals, labouring, creating discord and quarrel
etc.
.TWELFTH HOUSE
(I) Expenditure, sins, abode to the hell or heaven, left
eye, being handicapped, imprisonment, etc. are to be
considered from the twelfth house.
(2) If Jupiter in the 12th is aspected by his dispositor a
benefic, the native attains final emancipation.
(3) If the 12th lord is exalted, the native attains heavens
after death and goes to hell if the 12th lord is debilitated.
(4) If the 12th lord is between benefics, native's soul
proceeds for heavenly abode after death and if between
malefics then to the hell.
(5) The soul settles in the heavens after death if the
12th is aspected by the benefics and if by malefics then in
the hell. There is rebirth if the 12th is aspected by the
malefics as well as the benefics.
(6) The native spends on immoral activities if a malefic
in the 12th is aspected by a malefic (like gambling, sexual
gratification, visiting brothels, wine and women etc.).
(7) The native spends according to the karakatwa or
significations of the planet in the 12th. The malefics in the
12th induce the native to spend on immoral acts.
(8) The native suffers monetary loss through women,
if female planets (Venus, the Moon) are in the 12th and if
Kerala Astrology 69
male planets are there then through men folk.
(9) The monetary loss is through the caste and class of
planets in the 12th house.
(10) The lord of a particular house, its karaka, the
planet in the house and the planet aspecting that particular
house, if all the four are strong, there is boost in the results
of that house.
Notes- Following are the karakas or significators of
12 houses.
(1) The Sun, (2) Jupiter, (3) Mars, (4) The Moon and
Mercury, (5) Jupiter (6) Saturn and Mars, (7) Venus, (8)
Saturn, (9) The Sun and Jupiter, (10) The Sun, Jupiter, Saturn
and Mercury, (11) Jupiter, (12) Saturn.
(11) If the planets described at (10) are weak or
debilitated, the results of that particular house are partially
destroyed.
(12) The birth chart is the mirror of auspicious or
inauspicious future trends. If a person does not have the
birth chart he is the like a room without light.
SOME MIXED COMBINATIONS
(I) The native wins over his enemies if Libra,
Sagittarius or Pisces rise with Saturn therein.

are capable of creating Rajayogas.
(3) Planets in 6, 8 and 12 houses cause slavery.
Notes - If in 6, 7 and 8 houses are Mercury, Jupiter
and Venus, a very powerful Lagnadhi yoga is caused. If
the benefics are in the 6, 7 and 8 houses from the Moon, a
very beneficial Chandradhi-yoga is caused.
(4) If the Lagna lord is in the 6th and the 6th lord is
conjunct the 1Oth lord, the native is wealthy and is honoured
by the king or the government.
(5) If the Lagna lord and 11 thlord exchange signs and
Venus is in the 5th or 9th, the native is extremely famous
and honoured by the rulers or government.

cardinal sign and the lord of that cardinal sign is in the
Lagna, the native is learned and honoured by the rulers.

king, if Mercury and Jupiter are conjunct or aspect each
other.
Kerala Astrology 71
(8) The native leads a comfortable married life if Venus
is in the Lagna and Jupiter in the 7th house.
(9) If the Moon is in the 7th and her dispositor is in a
quadrant /trine with Venus, the native enjoys many kinds

house.
(11) If Saturn (in exaltation navamsa) is in 8th to the
9th lord, the anscestral property of the native recedes.
(12) If as the 2nd lord Venus is with Rahu or Ketu, the
property of the native is destroyed.
(13) If the 2nd and the 6th lords exchange signs or they
are in the 6th, the wealth is considerably lost.
(14) If the combust or debilitated lOth lord is in the
6th, 7th or the 8th house, the native's brothers are destroyed.
Notes -the lOth house is the 8th to the 3rd house
therefore destruction of brothers is said in yoga (14)
(15) The evils of Jupiter are destroyed if Jupiter and
Mercury are in the 7th house.
(16) If Venus and the bright Moon are in the 2nd or
the 7th (the karaka houses), the evils of Venus are destroyed.

KERALA SUTRAS
LAGNA BHA VA (First House)
(I) The body, colour, constitution, beauty, stature etc.
are to be judged from the first house.
(2) If the Lagna lord-
(a) is in the 6th, 8th or 12th, the native does not get
comforts of life and happiness,

debilitation, is conjunct the malefics or
combust, the native has to face sorrows,

(3) If the Lagna lord is in a quadrant/trine good result
accrue. Similarly, if he is in exaltation, own sign, exaltation
navamsa, benefic divisions, conjunct the friendly planets,
in friendly sign or aspected by or conjunct benefics, the
native gets good results.
(4) IftheLagnalord-
(a) is conjunct the strong Moon, the native has
beautiful eyes, his eye sight is good, his nature
is calm and his behaviour is good enough,
(b) is conjunct the weak Moon the native's eyes

to deceive others, is a beggar, is ready to
renounce the world and is without any fixed
profession.
78 A Glimpse of
Notes- The Sun is the karaka of the Lagna and the
above results accrue, if these planets conjunct the Sun. For
more detailed list of karkatwas of planets and significations
of houses see 'Uttara Kalamrita' translated by Prof. P.S. Sastri.
(5) The nature of planets in the Lagna, the nature of
the Lagna lord and the planets influencing him and the
Lagna, all should be considered for delineating the Lagna
results.
(6) Out of the Lagna, the Moon sign and the Sun sign
whichever is strongest should be considered for describing
the Lagna results.
(7) Consider the house whose ~ s u l t s are to be
described as Lagna. For example, if the house under
consideration is 7th then take 6th house of the chart for
12th house considerations of the 7th house. If the 7th lord
is in the 6th, he will give bad result for the 7th house being
in the 12th from the 7th house.
(8) For describing the results of a house its karaka
should also be judged. Take the placement of the karaka as
the Lagna and judge as usual. According to
1
Brihat Parasara
Hora Sastra
1
translated by R. Santhanam published by
M/s Ranjan Publications the karakas of 12 houses are-
Lagna The Sun 7th Venus
2nd
3rd
4th
5th
Jupiter
Mars
The Moon
Jupiter
8th Saturn
9th Jupiter
lOth Mercury
11th Jupiter
6th Mars 12th Saturn
According to
1
Jataka Parijata' the Moon and Mercury
are the karakas of the 4th house. Mars and Saturn are the
karakas of the 6th house. The Sun and Jupiter are the
Kerala Astrology 79
karakas of the 9th house. The Sun, Jupiter, Saturn and
Mercury are the karakas of the lOth house. These are only
the variations and in our own view 'BrihatParashara Hora
Sastra' should be more relied upon.
DHANA BHA VA (Second House)
(1) From the 2nd house the gains of wealth are
considered along with grand family, speech, right eye and
vedic knowledge etc.
As said for the Lagna, the 2nd house should be
judged in the same way for auspicious and inauspicious
results. The main features are aspects, associations and
placement of the 2nd house, the 2nd lord and the karaka
Jupiter.
(2) If the 2nd lord or Jupiter is conjunct the Sun etc.
the results are following-
The Sun-Vedic knowledge, medicinal knowledge,
proficiency in valuation of gems.
The Moon-Pious nature, Pauranic and historical
vocabulary, tendency for religious sacrifices, oratory.
Mars-Knowledge of philosophy, unreliable, warrior,
addiction to theft, liar, logician, big industrial schemes.
Mercury-Scarifices and offerings to goddesses,
recitation of mantras, proficiency in handicrafts,
professional ability.
Jupiter-Grammatical ability, religious bent of mind,
worship, earnings in codified manner, leadership ability,
in good books of the rulers.
Venus-Knowledge of medicine (to be a physician),
proficiency in cooking, good worldly knowledge, interest
in music and literature and proficiency.
80 A Glimpse of
Saturn-Fool, low nature, sufferings from windy
diseases.
Rahu-Courage, knowledge of worldly affairs and
means of material progress.
Ketu-Foreign travel, mental bent towards tantra and
mantra, cleverness, unscrupulousness.
(3) If the 2nd lord is linked to the 6th, 8th or the
12th lord by any way, the eye sight is badly affected. The
native has protruding eyes if Venus or the Moon is related
to the 2nd lord. The eye sight is weak if related to the
Sun.
(4) The weak 2nd lord produces defective speech.
A very weak or afflicted 2nd lord may make the native
dumb.
(5) The 2nd house is of family lineage. If the 2nd lord
is weak, the native is unable. to enjoy the family life (the
native is unable to get comforts from wife, perhaps he may
even not be married). The full Moon in the 2nd gives a
beautiful wife. Mars in the 2nd gives a crooked and
adultrous wife. Mercury in the 2nd makes the native to
adopt foul practices. Jupiter in the 2nd gives a faithful wife.
Venus in the 2nd makes one extremely sexy. Saturn in the
2nd makes one to establish immoral relations with low caste
women.
(6) The 2nd lord in the 2nd drekkana in the 6th, 8th or
12th house causes impediments in acquiring education
(This means that the 2nd house represents education).
If Rahu or Ketu are in the 2nd, the education does not
help the native in his profession.
The planets in the 2nd, with the 2nd lord or with the
karaka of the 2nd house are the clue of the source and
amount of wealth the native receives.
Kerala Astrology 81
The number of planets in the 2nd or with the 2nd lord
indicate the number of wives a native has (This yoga is not
found correct in practice).
BHRATRU BHAVA (Third House)
(1) Scrutinize the 3rd house for brothers and sister.
Notes - According to 'Phala Deepika' M/s Ranjan
Publications, the 3rd should be studied for chest, right ear,
army, warriorship, courage, strength and coborns. This
house is also called 'Dushchikya' house.
(a) The native is denied coborns if the 3rd lord and
karaka Mars are in the 6th, 8th or the 12th.
conjunct the malefics.
Notes - It has been experienced if benefics are in the
3rd but karaka Mars is ill placed, the coborns are there but
of no good to the native.
(b) The native gets comforts from coborns if the
3rd lord and Mars are in quadrants/trines, in
exaltation, own or Moolatrikona signs.
Notes- The 3rd lord, the 3rd house and Mars, all the
three should be in good situation to get favours from
coborns. But if the 3rd lord and Mars are happily placed
and malefics are in the 3rd house, the coborns are not
harmonious to the native.
(c) If the 3rd lord and Mars conjunct with the
malefics are in quadrants/ trines, there is birth
of coborns followed by their death after
sometime.
(d) If the 3rd lord and Mars are in female signs,
only female co horns are born and if these two
are in male signs, only male co horns are born.
If one out of the two is in male sign and the
82 A Glimpse of
other in a female sign, both male and female
coborns are born.
(2) The third house represents the coborns born after
the native. The 11th house is judged for the elder coborns.
If the 3rd and the 4th lords are related, the native gets
a house as property.
(3) If Mars or Rahu are related to the 3rd house the native
is courageous and sticks honestly to the work assigned.
MATRU BHAVA (Fourth House)
(1) The fourth house and its karaka the Moon are
studied for the mother, relatives signified by the 4th house,
comforts, home, furniture, conveyances, society and for
water in the house.
For all these the 4th house from the Lagna or the Moon
or the Sun should be scrutinized. The results should be
studied from the strongest 4th house out of the three Lagnas.
The lords of the three Lagnas and the planets they are
conjunct, the planets in the 4th house, the planets aspecting
these houses and their lords should also be taken for
judgement.
(2) If the lords of three Lagnas are the malefics or
aspected by the malefics, the malefic results are experienced.
If the Lagna lords are in the benefic signs aspected by the
benefics, auspicious results are experienced. If the Lagna
lords being in the 6th, 8th or the 12th are in enemy or
debilitation signs .the malefic results are experienced. If
some are in the benefic and other are in the malefic signs,
then malefic results are experienced for a short time.
(3) The conjunction of the Moon and the 4th lord is
auspicious in the Lagna, 4th or 1Oth house. If Rahu or Ketu
join this yoga, the yoga is destroyed.
Kerala Astrology 83
(4) If the Moon and Jupiter are in one sign, the native
purchases a vehicle in their dasas or he gets it some other way.
(5) If auspicious yogas are formed in the Lagna, 4th,
9th or lOth house, the native gets extreme comforts and
prosperity.
(6) The Moon in the 4th gives happiness and comforts.
Mars in the 4th, makes one look older than his age. Mercury
in the 4th, creates interest in fine and beautiful clothes.
Jupiter in the 4th, makes one kind at heart and the native is
installed in the position of power and authority. Venus in
the 4th, makes one lead a life full of enjoyments. If Saturn
is in the 4th house, the native is of low life values.
Notes- The author has not given results of the Sun,
Rahu and Ketu in the 4th house and whatever he has given
is very concise. According to 'Phala Deepika' the 4th house
represents house, fields, maternal uncle, sister's son,
relatives of the same family, friends, water, river and bridge.
See 'Phala Deepika' by Dr. G.S. Kapoor, M/s Ranjan
Publications.
According to this classic various planets in the 4th
house give following results-
The Sun-No comforts, no relatives, no friends, no
lands and house. The native loses his ancestral property
and serves the king. (For Taurus Lagna, the Sun being lord
of the 4th house gives good results when in the 4th house.)
The Moon-Happy, fond ofluxuries, emotional, good
friends, good conveyances, prestigious.
Mars-Without mother, friends, comforts, conveyances
and estates. (This does not apply to the 4th lord and the
yogakaraka Mars for Leo ascendant.
Mercury-Learned, one who praises others to get his
work done, one who has friends, lands, wealth and
property, luxuries and comforts of all sorts.
84 AG!imp;eof
Jupiter-Comforts from mother, friends, wife, progeny
and property.
Venus-Comforts from and of conveyances, good
house, ornaments, clothes and articles of fragrance.
Saturn-Devoid of house, prestige, mother, comforts,
and be disease sticken (For Libra ascendant Saturn is
yogakarka and in own house gives all kinds of comforts).
Rahu (a malefic)-A fool, inflicts sorrows, with many
friends; such a native is short lived and is sparingly happy.
Ketu (a malefic)-Residence in other's house and loss
of lands, estates, mother and happiness. One has to leave
his mother land.
(7) For conveyances the author gives followingclues,
Venus gives horse and boat, Mercury gives boat, Jupiter
the four wheeled chariot, Saturn gives elephant or camel
and the Moon gives chariot, the conveyance used by kings.
PUTRA BHA VA (Fifth House)
(1) If Jupiter, the karaka for progeny is in a quadrant
or trine, there is expansion of the family.
(2) If Jupiter or the 5th lord or both-
(a) are in the 6th, 8th or 12th cause destruction of
progeny.
(b) the same result, if these planets are debilitated.
(c) conjunct the 9th lord, extremely good results
for progeny.
(d) conjunct the 7th lord, the native acquires a
position of authority.
(e) conjunct the Sun and Saturn, the native
succeeds after impediments.
(f) conjunct the Sun and Jupiter, there are more sons.
Kerala Astrology 85
(g) conjunct the weak Moon or female planets,
there are more daughters.
(h) conjunct Mars or Ketu, destruction of progeny.
(i) conjunct Saturn, the native is less intelligent.
G) conjunct Venus, the native is contented.
(3) Jupiter in the 5th gives goods advisory capacity.
Mercury gives higher education and lust for knowledge.
RIPU BHAVA (Sixth House)
(1) The enemy and disease are judged from the 6th
house. Normally the malefics give good results in the 6th
house and the benefics harass the native. The 6th lord is
called the lord of diseases.
Notes- The classic 'Phala Deepika' ascribes following
results to the planets in the 6th house.
The Sun (A cruel)-Valorous like a king, with grandeur,
famous, wealthy, winner and endowed with good qualities.
The Moon (a benefic)-Short lived, less wisdom,
stomach ailments, gets insult and defeat.
Mars (a malefic)- Wealthy, famous, winner over
enemies, valorous like a king.
Mercury (a benefic)- Lazy, harsh speech, destroyer
of enemies.
Jupiter (a benefic)-Destroyer of enemies, reciter of
mantras, clever and gets insulted.
Venus (a benefic)- Without enemies and wealth.
Saturn ( a malefic)-Voracious eater, wealthy, ego
conscious, destroyer of enemies.
Rahu (a malefic)-Wealthy, long lived, troubled by
enemies.
86 A Glimpse of
Ketu (a malefic)-Generous, with good qualities,
strong willed, famous, winner over enemies.
From this discussion it may be inferred, though the
malefics in the 6th are generally auspicious, the benefics
also do not leave their beneficence completely.
(2) The Sun gives diseases of the head and the brain.
The Moon, Mars and Mercury cause diseases of the throat.
Jupiter gives heart ailments. Venus gives venereal and
urinary diseases. Saturn gives leg ailments like arthritis.
Rahu and Ketu are leprotic in the 6th house.
JAYA BHAVA (Seventh House)
(1) From the lord of the 7th house, the planets in the
7th and the 7th sign; the nature, habits and look of the life
partner can be judged. The malefics in the 7th speak of
multiple marriages.
(2) If Venus or the 7th lord is in the 6th, 8th or 12th
house, the wife remains ill and is short lived.
(3) The 7th lord also infonns about travels and progeny
along with the wife.
If the Sun is in the 7th or as the lord of the 7th, the
wife is adultrous. The full Moon in the 7th or as the lord of
the 7th gives extremely beautiful wife and if the Moon is
weak, the wife is not beautiful. Mars in the 7th or as the 7th
lord, the wife is adultrous. Mercury in the 7th or as the 7th
lord makes wife ill natured. Jupiter in the 7th or as the 7th
lord gives a loyal and good charactered wife. Saturn in the
7th or as the 7th lord or Rahu in the 7th, the wife seeks the
cohabitation with other men.
(4) If Venus or the 7th lord is in with benefic vargas,
the wife of the native is from a wealthy family. If the above
two with the benefics are in quadrants/trines, the wife gives
Kerala Astrology 87
birth to good sons. If the above two are in the malefic vargas,
in bad houses or conjunct malefics, the native gets
inauspicious results about wife and sons.
(5) If the 7th house and its lord are under the influence
of the malefics and its karaka is weak, the native remains
unmarried.
(6) If the Sun is conjunct the 7th lord or karaka Venus,
the wife of the native is of reddish colour, bilious
constitution with heavy voice and good conduct. If the
Moon is conjunct the 7th lord or karaka Venus, the wife of
the native is extremely beautiful, sweet natured and likes
ornaments and good clothes.
MRITYU BHA VA (Eighth House)
(1) If the 8th lord and Saturn are in the bad (6th, 8th,
12th) houses, the native is short lived.
Notes- It is well known that Saturn in the 8th
gives long life. The 8th house is the house of longevity
and the 12th to it, the 7th house is maraka house. The
8th lord in the 8th does not harm the longevity but increases
it.
(2) If the 8th lord and Saturn or both conjunct the Lagna
lord (a benefic) or the 8th lord or Saturn are in quadrant/
trine to the Lagna lord and both are strong the native enjoys
full life span. If both are moderately strong the native has
medium longevity.
(3) If the Lagna lord and the 8th lord are conjunct or
related to each other, the death occurs due to disorders of
wind, cough or bile. The disorder may be determined by
the concerned planets.
(4) If the Lagna lord and the 8th lord are in the 11th or
trine to the Moon or Saturn, the native enjoys full life span.
88 A Glimpse of
If the Lagna lord and the 8th lord are in some other house
the longevity is medium.
(5) If the Lagna lord, the 8th lord and the lOth lord
(conjunct or related to Saturn) are in a benefic sign, the
native acquires full longevity. If these planets are in
exaltation, Moolatrikona or own signs and are benefics, the
native dies without suffering.
(6) The disease which causes death is known from the
sign occupied by the strongest malefic as seen from the
Lagna. Usually the planet in8thfrom the Lagna or the Moon
is the indicator of the disease.
(7) The Sun causes death due to high fever. The Moon
causes death due to low blood quality or tuberculosis. Mars
causes death due to cancer or hurt from a weapon. Mercury
causes death due to throat ailments or poison. Jupiter causes
death due to indigestion or cough, Venus due to excess of
urine or diabetes and Saturn causes death due to windy
disorders or arthritis. Rahu-Ketu cause death due to
disorders of all the three humours.
Notes- This is a very important issue and the author
has taken it very lightly and shortly. This issue oflongevity
has been discussed by other celebrities at length. The reader
may consult the following works in this context with
advantage.

Kerala Astrology 89
BHAGYA STHANA (Ninth House)
(1) The prestige, a native acquires is judged from the
9th house, the 9th lord and by the Sun, Jupiter and Venus
(Whoever is strong).
Notes-According to 'Phala Deepika' 9th house is
judged for preceptor, deity of worship, father, worship,
destiny, grand children, grand family lineage.
The 9th house is also called the house of fortunes and
the house of religious codes or righteousness.
(2) The sign exchange between the lords of the 9th and
the lOth is a very fortunate Rajayoga and the native acquires
great honour and prestige.
(3) Here are the results of various planets in the 9th house.
The Sun-Slow but certain acquisition of fame.
The Moon-Increase of knowledge and good deeds.
Mars-Higher status in the society.
Mercury-Sharp intellect.
Jupiter-Increase of wisdom.
Venus-Gains of all kinds of comforts.
Saturn-A messenger or ambassador.
Rahu-Ketu-Meagre fortunes.
Notes-According to 'Phala Deepika' various planets
give following results in the 9th house.
The Sun-Devoid of paternal happiness in childhood,
happiness from progeny and social contacts, worshiper of gods.
The Moon-Progenial happiness and good religious
conduct.
Mars-Jealousy on the part of the native, even if
he may have royal contacts, such a native is the killer of masses.
Mercury-Learned, wealthy, religious and of good
conduct. Extremely talkative and clever.
Jupiter-Wealthy, has sons, famous, eager for religious
activity and the minister of king.
90 A Glimpse of
Venus-Fortunes through the grace of king, comforts
from wife, sons and friends.
Saturn-Misfortunes, without wealth, without
progeny, without father, irreligious, scarcity of all comforts.
Rahu-Irritating speech, no charities, leader of some
sect, village or town.
Ketu-Ill nature, ill thoughts and ill deeds, without
father and fortune, poor, ill thinker about the noble.
(4) The native is not in the good books of his preceptor,
if the Moon conjuncts Saturn is in the 9th house.
(5) The native achieves status by his own endeavours,
if Jupiter is in the 9th house. If Saturn is in the 9th, the native
causes his fall due to his own deeds. Venus in the 9th under
malefic influence makes one of questionable character. The
native donates in charities and is of sound character if Venus
is under the benefic influence in the 9th house. The native
asks for other's help if the benefics are weak in the 9th being
combust or debilitated. The benefics in the 9th in strength
help the native to achieve final emancipation or to achieve
the ability of future vision.
The chart No.26 is of Maharishi Arvind. Here the exalted
9th lord Jupiter is in the Lagna with the 5th and lOth lord Mars.

(6) If Jupiter the karaka of charitable and religious
nature is in the 9th with the Moon, the native is known for
his charitable and social disposition.
(7) The native remains engaged in evil deeds, if strong
malefics are in the 9th house.
(8) The strong Sun in the 9th indicates a prosperous
father.
(9) Jupiter in the 9th strongly indicates that the native
advocates untouchability and even he may be cooking his
food himself. Mercury in the 9th makes one fond of
delicious food. Saturn in the 9th shows that the native
consumes whatever he gets to eat.
(10) The chart where the 9th house is tenanted by
watery planets (Venus, the Moon) and is aspected by the
Sun, Mars or Mercury, the native is engaged in the
expansion and preaching of some religious thought and
establishes a religious institution.
KARMA STHANA (Tenth House)
(1) The occupation or profession of the native is judged
from lOth house from the Lagna or the Moon (whoever is
strong).
Notes-According to 'Phala Deepika', lOth house is
judged for business, position, status, honour, prestige,
profession, fame, yajna, methods of earning, eagerness for
the work, conduct, merits, sky and ability to rule.
(2) The native adopts an honourable profession, if
Jupiter or Venus is in the 1Oth house and he is of charitable
disposition.
(3) If the 1Oth lord related to Saturn and Mercury is in
the 9th house, the native has tendency to acquire final
emancipation. If these planets are in the malefic vargas or
92 A Glimpse of
divisions his desire remains unfulfilled. If these planets
are in the cardinal sign vargas, the major part of native's
life goes in travelling. If these planets are in fixed sign
vargas the native remains at one place for the most part of
his life.
(4) If the strong 9th and the lOth lords are related to
each other, the native acquires a responsible position.
If there is exchange of signs between the 9th and the lOth
lords or both are in their respective signs in the 9th and the
lOth, the native is liked by the king and thus acquires a
position of authority to rule. If the 9th and the lOth cusps
fall in the vargas of their exaltation signs, the native is
honoured by the high officials of other countries. If with
this yoga the other planets are also exalted, the native is
sure to be a king.

the 1Oth house and the significations of these planets
(Satvika, Rajasika or Tamasika) and the sign at the lOth
house decide the profession, where the native will succeed.
If these planets are weak, the native faces impediments,
hindrances and breaks in his profession time to time.
(6) If the Sun and Mars are strongly related to the lOth
house, the native can progress in defence forces and may
acquire a commanding position. If Mars and Saturn are
similarly related to the 1Oth house, the native can be in the
army but cannot progress to a high position.

FIRST HOUSE (Lagna Bhava)
(1) The benefic results of a house are realised, if the
house lord is placed in the concerned house or the house is
aspected by its lord or benefics. Contrarily, if in a house
the malefics or the lords of the 6th, 8th or the 12th are
situated, then the complete results of that house are not
realised. If a house is completely spoilt, ho good for that
house can be expected. If a house lord is debilitated,
combust or in the 6th, 8th or the 12th from that house, the
house gets weakened. The house lord who is exalted, in
Moolatrikona signor in own sign boosts the house he owns.
Notes- These principles are generally applicable to
all the houses. For judging the house results we give below
some principles from 'Phala Deepika'-
(a) The house tenanted or aspected by the benefics
give good results. The house tenanted by its
lord gives good results though he may be a
malefic.
(b) If from the house under consideration, there
are benefics in the 1st, 2nd,, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th
100 A Glimpse of
and the lOth, the good results of the house
occur and if there are malefics in these houses
from the concerned house inauspicious results
occur. Mixed planets give mixed results.
(c) If a house lord is in the 8th, combust,
debilitated, in an enemy sign and unaspected
or unassociated with the benefics, the results
of that house are destroyed. This principle is
applicable to both type of house lords, ie
malefics or benefics.
(d) The malefics in the 6th, 8th and 12th from a
house, destroy the results of that house.
(e) A house is harmed if its lord is placed in the
6th, 8th, or 12th to it.
In contrast we cite here the sloka from another classic
'J atakadeshMarga' -
I
d"'llciilil"'ll;;f V ' : I I
If a house is aspected or associated with its strong
malefic lord, the results of that house are inauspicious. If
this malefic lord is weak, the inauspicious results are less.
Most of the authorities do not agree to this. Most accepted
view is that, if a house lord, be a benefic or malefic, he joins
or aspects his own house, the auspicious house results get
boosted. The following sloka of 'Jatakadesh Marga' clarifies
this-
I
'!lm\ifriffif' err II
(2) If the Lagna is aspected by or conjoined to the Sun,
the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter or Venus, the native is
handsome. He is not handsome, if Saturn, Rahu or Ketu
Kerala Astrology 101
conjoin or aspect the Lagna. If both type of planets influence
the Lagna, the results are of mixed character. The native
may not have fair colour but his features are sharp.
(3) Jupiter and Venus indicate phlegmatic constitution.
Saturn and the Moon represent windy constitution and rest
of the planets represent bilious constitution. The propensity
of these humours can be determined in the native's
constitution, if these planets are in the Lagna.
(4) Following are the results of the aspects or
conjunctions of various planets to the Lagna-
Saturn and Jupiter Satvika nature
Mars and Rahu
Ketu
Tamasika nature
Knowledgeable
Rest of the planets Rajasika nature.
Notes- No authority declares Saturn as of Satvika
nature. According to 'Brihat Jataka' 2nd chapter, sloka 7
('Brihat Jataka' translated by Prof P.S. Sastri) the Sun, the
Moon and Jupiter represent Satvika nature. Mercury and
Venus represent Rajasika nature and Mars and Saturn are
of Tamasika nature.
According to 'Jataka Parijata' chapter 2, sloka 8, the
Sun and the Moon give light. Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus
and Saturn are Tara planets. Rahu and Ketu are of Tama
nature. The 26th sloka says the Sun, the Moon and Jupiter
are Satvaguna, Venus and Mercury are Rajoguna and Saturn
and Mars are Tamoguna planets.
Ketu has been accepted by many as the significator of
knowledge but according to 'Phala Deepika' 2nd chapter,
sloka 35 Ketu is lean, cruel in nature and causes atrocities.
He is of down caste.
There is saying ~ ~ ~ . ~ ~ ~ ~ ie. Rahu is like
Saturn and Ketu is like Mars in effects.
102 A Glimpse of
(5) If the Lagna is conjunct the Moon or Saturn, the
native is of plump body. If the Lagna is with or aspected by
the Sun, Mercury or Jupiter, the native is of ordinary body.
If the remaining planets are in or aspect the Lagna, the
native is lean and lanky.
Notes- We do not agree to the author, according to
'Phala Dee pika' 2nd chapter, sloka 8-14, the Sun is of square
body, his arms are big. The Moon is bulky. Mars is thin at
the middle means his waist is thin. Mercury has
proportionate body ie all his body limbs are proportionate.
Jupiter has a strong, elevated chest, a big body, and
the body parts are bulky. Saturn has long and lean body.
Sloka 35 declares Rahu with a big body. Ketu has lean body.
According to 'BRIHAT JATAKA' 2nd chapter, sloka
8-11, the Sun has square body. The Moon has thin and round
body. Mars is young with thin waist. Nothing is said about
Mercury. Jupiter has a big body. Venus has beautiful and
well proportioned body. Saturn is long and bony.
(6) If the Lagna lord is exalted, in own or friendly sign
and is placed in a quadrant/trine, the native achieves fame
and honour. If Jupiter is in the Lagna or the 7th or in Aries,
Cancer, Scorpio or Capricorn sign, the native besides being
of charitable disposition, is also an honourable citizen.
Notes-Such results do not occur for Jupiter unless
and until he does not getNeecha Bhanga.
(7) The native gets physical comforts, if the Lagna lord
is a benefic or the Lagna is conjoined to or aspected by a
benefic, or the Lagna lord is in a quadrant/trine identical
with his exaltation, own or friendly sign.
Contrary results occur, if the Lagna lord a malefic is
in debilitation or enemy sign, aspected by a malefic and is
in the 6th, 8th or 12th house or a malefic is in the Lagna.
Kerala Astrology 103
(8) If Saturn, Mercury or Ketu are in the 2nd, 5th or
7th house or aspect these houses, the native is weak in sex
act or sexual performance.
Notes -The 2nd and 5th houses have nothing to do
with sexual performance. The 7th house and Venus are only
concerned with sexual performance. The readers however
can experiment with this combination.
(9) If the Lagna is with or aspected by Saturn, the
native suffers from gout or excessive sexual desire and he
ultimately becomes weak.
(10) If the Lagna is under the influence of Mars, the
native suffers of hurts, wounds, small pox or fire. Mars
afflicting the Lagna may also cause Prameha, a disease
which causes weakening of the body due to the excessive
urination.
(11) If Saturn in own drekkana is in the Lagna along
with Rahu and Mars, the native is lame and limps due to
defective leg).
(12) If three planets the Sun, the Moon and Mars
collectively are in the 4th, 6th, 8th or 12th houses, aspected
by a malefic or enemy planet, the native becomes deaf.
Notes- These yogas can have some significance,
if proved true in the light of experience, otherwise the
4th, 6th, 8th and 12th houses have nothing to do with
ear.
(13) If the Sun, the Moon, Mars and Saturn collectively
are in the 5th house, though aspected by a benefic, there is
possibility of ear or nose being amputed.
(14) If Mars, Saturn and Rahu are in the 8th house,
according to Kerala classic there is possibility of the nose
being amputed.

(15) If Mars in the 8th house conjoined to or aspected
by Saturn, the native may die in the battle.
(16) If Saturn and Jupiter together are in the 7th or

(17) If the Lagna lord is in the Lagna or 4th house and
the 9th lord in the 9th or Lagna is conjunct to or aspected
by Jupiter and Venus, the native will always lead a life of
prosperity.

these are author's own experiences and hence do not require

one wealthy and happy and one has beautiful
eyes.
Notes- The 2nd lord from the 8th aspects the 2nd and
the 2nd lord in the 3rd is happy, because of the principle of
"Bhavat Bhavam". The 2nd lord in the 6th or 12th may
destroy the 2nd house.

by any means.
(9) If the exalted 2nd lord conjunct the Moon is in a

there is a malefic in the 3rd house, then also this yoga is
formed.
Notes- It is strange how could the 3rd lord in the 11th
destroys brothers as the 11th is the 9th to the 3rd house and
conducive for brothers. For Libra ascendant, the 3rd lord
Jupiter aspects the 3rd house, if he is in the 11th. How could
he would destroy brothers ?
(2) If the 3rd house, the 3rd lord, Mars and the
dispositor of Mars all are afflicted, the native does not have

should also be strong to get maximum auspicious
results.

the 4th lord and is related to the 7th lord, then in the dasa

9th lords exchange aspects the woman is barren.
Notes- We are unable to understand what principle

(3) Saturn in the 5th delays conception. The Sun gives
the only son. Mars aborts or gives two notorious sons.
Jupiter and Venus provide 4 well cultured children. Rahu
and Ketu give progeny from the unmarried beloved.
Longevity of progeny depends upon the strength of
the 5th lord.

Mars and Jupiter) male issues are born and if with the
female planets (Venus, Moon and Rahu) first issue is female.

daughter or twins (one son and one daughter).
If the 9th house is aspected by Jupiter, the native does
have sons.

the 12th is aspected by Jupiter, even then she (Venus) was
not able to save the only two daughters. The first daughter
was still born while the 2nd died just after birth.
'Jataka Parijata' gives following views about twins-
( a) If the Moon and Venus are in even signs and
Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and the Lagna are in
odd signs, a son and a daughter as twins are
born.
If the Lagna and the Moon are in even signs
and the male planets aspect these two, the
twins are a male and a female.
The same is the result, if strong Lagna, Jupiter,
Mars and Mercury are in even signs.
120 A Glimpse of
If the above planets and the Lagna are in
common navamsa and Mercury aspects them
from his own navamsa, there are three embryos
in the womb.
If Mercury is in the male navamsa (Gemini)
aspects the above planets in common
navamsa, two males and one female, if
Mercury is in female navamsa (Virgo) aspects
the above planets in common navamsa, two
females and one male are born.
If Mercury from Gemini navamsa aspects the
above planets in Gemini or Sagittarius
navamsa then three males are born.
If Mercury from Virgo navamsa aspects the
above planets in Virgo or Pisces navamsa then
three females are born. (chapter 3, sloka 24).
(b) If the Lagna is last navamsa of Sagittarius and
the above yogakaraka planets are in Sagittarius
navamsa and the Lagna is aspected by strong
Mercury and Saturn, there are more than three
embryos in the womb. (chapter 3, sloka 25).
(c) Ii Mercury from the Virgo navamsa aspects the

above planets m common navamsas (3,6,9 and
12) and the Lagna, there are three embryos in
the womb, two females and one male (chapter
3, sloka 26).
(d) If Mercury from Gemini navamsa aspects these
planets and the Lagna, then there are two males
and one female. If Mercury from Gemini
navamsa aspects these planets in Gemini
navamsa, then there are three males (chapter
3, sloka 27).
Kerala Astrology 121
(e) If these planets and the Lagna are in Gemini
or Virgo navamsa and are aspected by Mercury
in Gemini navamsa say three males and if
Mercury aspects from Virgo navamsa say three
females.

(c) the 5th lord is in Taurus, Cancer, Virgo or Libra

(d) the 5th lord is aspected by Venus, the Moon
and Rahu.
If the 5th lord is in a male sign and is conjunct or
aspected by a male planet or Jupiter is in the Lagna or the
5th house, the male issue is certain.
122 A Glimpse of
(6) If the Lagna and the 5th lords are conjunct
themselves and aspected by or conjunct the Moon, there is
only one son. If conjunct or aspected by Venus, there is only
one daughter. If conjunct or aspected by Jupiter, there is
one daughter and one son. If conjunct ~ aspected by Ketu,
there are only daughters.
Notes - What principle lies behind is not known,
however if there are afflictions to the 5th house, 5th lord
and Jupiter, there may be hindrances in begetting progeny.
It is ultimately up to the readers to decide the usefulness of
these yogas.
(7) If the 5th lord is in a quadrant, in the 11th, in
exaltation, own sign or Moolatrikona sign and is with or
aspected by a benefic, the birth of children is certain.
Benefics in the 9th ascertain the birth of children.
(8) If the Moon or the Sun is in the 5th or the 11th, the
native is dependent on others' will. If the Lagna and the
5th lords are hemmed between the malefics same results
may be predicted.
(9) If the malefics are in the 5th or 7th and the 5th and
7th lords are in the malefic houses, there is possibility of
pains in the heart or stomach.
Notes-It is strange how the 7th lord is related to the
heart or stomach and how the Moon or the Sun in the 5th
or 11th makes one dependent on others.
SIXTH HOUSE (Ripu Bhava)
(1) If Mars and Rahu are in the 6th, the native suffers
of hydrocele (a disease where the scrotum sac is filled by
some fluid). In such a yoga there is possibility of the wife
to have menstrual disorders.
Notes- This yoga has been found to be correct in
practice.
The given chart No. 40 is of a person whose wife
suffered of menstrual disorders for many years and was
operated upon for the same.

(2) If Ketu is in the 6th or 7th house, the native has
defective lungs and spits blood mixed with sputum.
124 A Glimpse of
Notes - The native can have defective lungs, if the
sign Cancer, the 4th house, its lord and the Moon are related
to the 6th house or its lord.
(3) If the 6th house is tenanted or aspected by the
benefics there is increase of the enemies. Malefics here
destroy the enemies.
This is a very delicate issue and the reader may consult
'PhalaDeepika' translated by Dr G.S. Kapoor, 'Brihat
Jataka' by Prof. P.S. Sastri and 'Saravali' translated by
R. Santhanam.
However, we give much importance to 'BrihatJataka'
and reproduce the results here-
If the Sun is in the 6th, the native is strong but is
defeated by his enemies. The Moon in the 6th makes one
weak and suffer from stomach ailments and has a lot of
enemies, the native is also lazy with less power of sexual
performance. Mars in the 6th is like the Sun. Mercury in
the 6th makes one free of enemies. The native is also devoid
of enemies, if Jupiter is in the 6th house. Saturn is like the
Sun in the 6th house.
(4) Rahu in the 6th causes danger of poisoning and
serpent bite. Saturn causes danger of fever and theft. Mars
results in piles. The Moon in the 6th creates danger from
water. Jupiter here in the 6th causes diseases which continue
for a long time. Diseases of bile are ascribed to Mercury in
the 6th house. Venus in the 6th is the cause of distress
between the husband and wife.
(5) If the 6th and the 9th lords conjoin Rahu, Ketu, the
native keeps illegal relations with low caste women. If the
6th lord is conjunct Saturn, the native is fond of very low
caste women. If with Mercury, then the native has sexual
intimacy with women of traders. If Jupiter and Venus
conjoin the 6th lord, the native involves in sex act with

women of Brahmin community. The Sun with the 6th lord
is indicator of mtimacy with women of .Kshatriya or warrior
community.
The exalted 6th lord indicated that the native has a
large number of relatives.
If Jupiter and Rahu are in the 2nd or 7th house, the
native has relation with the wife of a sweeper like person
or with a lady of that community.
(6) If the 6th lord with a malefic is in the 9th house,
the native suffers on account of enemies. He may attain a
little prosperity.
(7) The native suffers of hernia, if Jupiter and Rahu are
in the 6th house. He may also protrude his anus while at stools.
Following is the chart no. 41 of person who protrudes

this condition is called piles. ..,

(8) If the 6th lord in the 7th house is aspected by Mars,
the native downs with diseases like small pox and if
aspected by Rahu, the native gets some organ amputed. If
the 6th lord in the 7th is aspected by Ketu, the native is the
victim of leprosy.
SEVENTH HOUSE (lava Bhava)
(1) Mars and Rahu in the 7th house indicate that the
native will be ousted of his caste after he marries the woman
of other caste. If the Moon and Jupiter aspect the
combination, he will be taken in after sometime.
If Jupiter and the Moon are in the 7th, the native sticks
to his religion strictly .
./'
(2) If three planets are conjunct the 7th lord and Mars,
Rahu and Venus conjuhct or aspect them, the wife of the
native is from other ~ s t e or the one who has been ousted
of her caste.
(3) If the Moon and Jupiter are in the 7th, the wife
of the native is very beautiful. Saturn in the 7th gives a wife
who is not beautiful and is older than the native. If the
Sun and Mercury are in the 7th, the native also cohabits
with the women other than his wife. Mars in the 7th
makes one very sexy and the native is ready to perform the
sex act with many women. If Venus is there the results are
the same.
Notes- The readers are referred to other classics also
for more clarifications. The classics recommended are
'Saravali', 'Brihat Jataka', 'Phala Deepkia' and 'Jataka
Parijata'.

(4) If the 7th lord is conjunct the 5th lord and Jupiter,
native enjoys the association of two wives and gets
progeny from both of them.
If the 7th lord is conjoined to Saturn and Rahu, the

the 2nd wife.
(6) The native marries again after the death of his first
wife if-

is in the 6th, 8th or 12th and is also aspected
by a malefic,
(b) the 7th lord is combust or debilitated,

beautiful but short in stature.
Notes-The yo gas at (6) and (7) are of value, we have
no experience about these, the readers will do well to test
them in the light of their experiences.
(8) If the 7th lord is exalted arid a benefic aspected by
I
Venus is in the 7th, the native has many wives.
IfRahu also conjoins this yoga, the native is engaged
in discarded and unnatural sex acts.
Notes-In modern times no body can have many
wives rather one can keep relations with many women n
thus is involved in vices.
(9) See how many planets are with the 2nd and the
7th lords and Venus, out of them the strong planets indicate
the number of wives.
(10) If the 2nd and -the 7th lords are conjunct or
aspected by a malefic and their dispositors are weak, the
native marries again.
(11) If there is a planet in the 4th house and the 7th
lord is conjunct or aspected by a malefic, the native is of
questionable character.
(12) If the Lagna lord is conjunct or aspected by a
malefic and the 2nd, 7th and lOth lords are together, the
native is ofloose moral character.
(13) If the 7th lord is in the sign of Mars or Saturn
and is conjunct or aspected by Mars, the native is not of
sound moral character and may drift from one woman to
other.
If the 7th lord is in the 8th or the 7th house and is
aspected by Mars, the native's wife is of questionable
character.
Kerala Astrology

indicates that the wife of the native is of loose moral
character.
(15) The native is morally weak, if Mars and Venus in
Saturn's sign are aspected by Saturn.
(16) Rahu in the 7th makes one to have relations with
widows. Mars and Venus in the 7th addict one to maid
servant.
(17) The planet with Venus indicates the caste of the
woman in illegal relations with the native.
Venus with Rahu shows that the native has illegal
relations with a washer woman. Mercury idicates a
woman of trader community, Jupiter shows a Brahmin
woman and Mars directs towards the woman of warrior
community. ....
(18) Planets in the 7th also indicate the caste of the
beloved.
The weak Sun with Rahu in the 7th indicates the

woman. The Moon in the 7th a bulky woman.

(1) Up to 32 years is short longevity, above 32 years is
medium longevity and more than 70 years is full longevity.
(2) If the Lagna lord and the Sun are natural enemies,
the native is short lived. If both are natural friends and
temporary enemies ie neutrals, the longevity is medium. If
they are friends both ways, the native is long lived.
Notes- The Sun observes enemity with Saturn and
Venus. Then all the individuals with Taurus, Libra,
Capricorn and Aquarius Lagna must be short lived and this
is not feasible. Mahatma Gandhi and scientist C.V. Raman
were natives of Libra ascendant and both of them attained
long life. Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru and scientist Jagadish

Saturn's conjunction restricts the functioning and
significations of the planet he is conjunct with.

the exalted 9th lord Jupiter from the Lagna. The Lagna lord
and 9th lord are not afflicted.
(7) Yo gas for the destruction ofBalarishta -
If Jupiter is exalted or is in the 6th, 8th or 12th house
then most of the bad yo gas for longevity are vanquished. If
the Lagna lord is strong, the Balarishta is destroyed. If
Jupiter, Venus and Mercury are in quadrants/ trines, the bad
yogas for longevity get vanished and the native acquires
long life.
(8) Following yogas also abolish the bad yo gas for
longevity-
(a) Strong Jupiter is in the Lagna.
(b) Benefic Rahu is in Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Leo,
Scorpio or Capricorn.
(c) Jupiter and Venus are in quadrants/trines.
(d) The birth is in the night of bright half or in the
day of dark half and the Moon is in the 6th,
8th or 12th aspected by Jupiter, the balarishta
is destroyed.
(9) Saturn being the lord of the Lagna or 8th house
forms an auspicious yoga, the native acquires full longevity.
(10) If the Sun is in the Lagna and Mars in the 8th, the
Raja yoga is formed and the native acquires full longevity
and leads the life like a king.
(11) The 2nd and 7th lords are marakas or death
inflicting planets and the planets posited in these two
houses also acquire the same character.
Notes -Some scholars believe that the planets
aspecting these two houses are also marakas.
(12) The lord of the 12th and the planets in the 12th
come next in the list of marakas, but if they are aspected by
a benefic, they don't acquire the seat of maraka.
Kerala Astrology 139
If the 3rd and 8th lords are not in their own or
exaltation signs and are also not related to a benefic, they
then become marakas. If these two planets are malefics, they
surely then become marakas. If the Sun or the Moon become
the 8th lord, they are not marakas even then, but if they are
exalted, they become marakas.
Notes- At one place it is said if the 8th lord is exalted
he is not a maraka and in contrast to it the author tells us if
the Sun and the Moon are exalted as 8th lords they become
marakas. We are unable to understand this. The accepted
principle is that the evil of the 8th lordship does not apply
to the Sun and the Moon.
(13) In this way by serialising the marakas, the dasa
of death should be fixed.
If a planet does not acquire the maraka properties then
choose the maraka from the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 12th and 11th
lords if not aspected by a benefic. The benefic aspect takes
away the maraka property while the malefic aspect
confirms it. The death will occur in the dasa and bhukti of
such planets. If Saturn along with other planet acquires the
maraka property then Saturn will do it, not the other planet.
(14) Full, medium and short longevity has already
been discussed. Selection of maraka has been discussed in
(11) to (14). If there are yogas for full life or medium life,
the native will not die even if the dasa of a maraka is on.
The native does not die before the expiry of the longevity
prescribed by different yogas oflongevity.
(15) If the 8th and 12th lords are extremely strong
besides being marakas, they cause death in their bhukti. If
they are weak, they do not inflict death but in their bhukti,
the native and his relatives experience physical and
financial distress, fear from enemies, fear of ghosts,
government penalties etc.
140 A Glimpse of
(16) If Venus is in Cancer Lagna, Jupiter is in Pisces
then Saturn in Scorpio would become a maraka. Venus is
in the Lagna aspected by Jupiter even then Saturn will kill
the native in his d a ~ a
(17) According to Maharishi Jaimini, the planet in the
8th or the 8th lord is a maraka.
(18) If there is a wall it can be painted, similarly if there
is longevity, the native can enjoy good or bad results of
yo gas. Therefore longevity of a chart should be ascertained
first.
(19) If there is short longevity in a chart and there are
also strong yo gas of marriage and progeny then it should
be made clear, if such yogas help in the extention of the
longevity.
NINTH HOUSE (Bhagva Bhava)
(1) The lords of trines are auspicious planets. If they
also happen to be the lords of the 3rd, 6th or 11th house
then they are not fully auspicious but still there remains
some auspiciOusness.
Notes- For all the Lagnas no planet is the 3rd and
11th lord besides being the trinallord. However he can be
the 6th lord. The essence of the statement seems to be that
the trine lord if at the same time is the lord of the bad house
he is not fully auspicious.
(2) If Jupiter and Venus are the lords of quadrants they
do not give auspicious results due to kendradhipatya dosha
(the evil acquired by being the lords of quadrants).
The full Moon has less kendradhipatya dosha.
Mercury acquires this dosha ifunassociated with a malefic.
Jupiter has this evil more than Mercury if he happens to be
the lord of quadrants. Venus is more evil than Jupiter in
such a situation.
The Moon is fully strong or benefic from the 8th of
bright half to the 8th of dark half, otherwise she is weak
and evil. Malefic associated Mercury, the Sun, Mars and
Saturn are evil planets and give auspicious results being
the lord of quadrants.
142 A Glimpse of
If a planet besides being the Lagna lord is also the 8th
lord, he gives good results e.g. Mars for Aries Lagna and
Venus for Libra Lagna. For Libra Lagna Venus being lord
of a quadrant is a bit inauspicious but for Aries Lagna Mars
being lord of a quadrant gives only benefic results.
(3) If the 10thlord is exalted in own sign or in a friendly
sign, the native is successful in his profession. If the lOth
lord is in the Lagna in a friendly sign or is in the 4th or the
5th house, the auspicious results are 50%. If the lOth lord is
in the 2nd, 3rd, 7th or 11th the auspicious results are 25%.
If he is in debilitation in the 6th, 8th or 12th the auspicious
results are 12
1
12%.
(4) The conjunction of the 9th and 1Oth lords creates a
Rajayoga (combination for prosperity). This is an accepted
principle.
If the 9th and 1Oth lords exchange signs (even being
the lords of the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th or 12th) the results of this
special Rajayoga are still present. In the absence of sign
exchange, if the concerned planet/planets are lords of the
3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th or 12th the auspicious results are absent.
In this context we must remember that in the above
circumstances there shall be no Rajayoga, but out of the
two planets, the planet who is not the lord of the 3rd, 6th,
8th, 11th or 12th house, still remains a Rajayoga planet.
For Aries Lagna Saturn and Jupiter besides being 1Oth
and 9th lords are also the 11th and the 12th lords, if Saturn
is in Sagittarius and Jupiter, debilitated in Capricorn, the
Rajayoga will be there but not as auspicious as formed for
the other Lagnas. There shall be no Rajayoga if both these
planets are in one sign.
(5) For Leo and Aquarius Lagnas Venus and Mars are
the lords of the 1Oth l)ouse but are not considered auspicious
because they are also the lords of the 3rd house.
Kerala Astrology 143
For Capricorn and Cancer Lagnas, Mercury and
Jupiter are not auspicious because they are also the lords
of the 6th house.
Besides being all this, if there is exchange of signs
between the 9th and lOth lords, the Rajayoga is still present
to some extent. In such a situation the evil of ownership of
being the lords of the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th and 12th is lessened.
For Taurus Lagna Saturn is fully auspicious being the
lord of the 9th and lOth houses. If the 5th lord is conjunct
the lOth lord, he becomes a Rajayogakaraka planet.
(6) The lords of the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th and the 12th
houses are inauspicious planets. If these lords are related
to a Rajayogakaraka planet, then in the dasa and the bhukti
of the Rajayogakaraka planet, the results of the Rajayoga
are felt.
(7) If a planet (auspicious by lordship) is conjunct a
Yogakaraka planet, then in the dasa ofyogakaraka and the
bhukti of that planet auspicious results occur.
(8) Strong quadrant and trine lords form Raja yoga. The
conjunction of the 4th and 5th lords, the 9th and 10th lords
forms Rajayoga.
(9) Rahu and Ketu in quadrants if are with the lords
of trines or in a trine are conjunct the quadrant lords then
they become the Rajayogakaraka planets.
(10) If the 9th and lOth lords are conjunct but some
way are related to the 8th and 11th lords, the Rajayoga is
weakened.
(11) Rahu-Ketu in auspicious houses become
Rajayogakaraka planets, if unassociated with other planets
give auspicious results in their dasa and bhukti.
(12) If the 11th lord is in a quadrant, the native achieves
valuable goods in his dasa and will be happy all the way.
144 A Glimpse of
(13) If the Moon is in the constellation Rohini aspected
by Venus and the malefics are in the 3rd, 6th and 11th houses
then an exceptional Rajayoga is formed.
(14) If the Lagna and the 2nd lord exchange signs, the
native feeds thousands of people (means he is very rich).
(15) If Mercury, Venus and Jupiter together are in the
7th house a Rajayoga is caused.
Notes- This yoga is called Lagnadhiyoga.
'JatakadeshMarga' has described this yoga as-

'llCI'fij II
(chapter 8, sloka 30)
When the benefics (Mercury, Jupiter, Venus) are in the
6th, 7th and 8th houses unaspected or inconjoined to the

these houses, the native is devoid of all the happiness.

For Lagnadhiyoga it is not necessary that all the
benefics should be in the 7th. This is formed even if they
are in the 6th, 8th and the 7th house or in one house only. It
is our view as Mercury is usually with the Sun, the yoga
has its strength due to Mercury and the Sun combination.
(16) If the 9th lord with the Moon is in the 2nd house,
a Rajayoga is caused.
(17) The planets have ten kinds of avasthas or
situations which are given below. Planets give results in
their dasas according to their avasthas.
Swastha A vastha-A planet in own sign is swastha. In
the dasa of such a planet the native gets honour, fame,
comforts of home, prosperity, happiness from wife and
happiness from family.
146 A Glimpse of
Deepta Avastha-An exalted planet is deepta. In the
dasa of such a planet the results of swastha avastha are
enhanced. Besides this he gets comforts of conveyances,
stately honour, respect from relatives, authority and long
life etc.
Mudita Avastha-Ifa planet is in the sign of his extreme
friend he is in mudita avastha. The native gets good food,
good clothes, ornaments and progenial happiness in the
dasa of such a planet.
Shanta Avastha-If a planet is in his friend's sign he is
in shanta avastha. The native gets love from friends, mental
peace, peace around, education, comforts, contentment and
financial prosperity in the dasa of such a planet.
Dukhita Avastha-If a planet is in enemy sign then
he is in dukhita avastha. In the dasa of such a planet, the
native experiences fear of fire, government penalties, fear
of theft/ death of near relative, quarrels and troublesome
JOurneys.
I
Vikala A vastha-If a planet is debilitated or in the sign
of his extreme enemy, he is in the vikala avastha. In the dasa
of such a planet, the native has to face diseases, all kinds of
troubles, separation from the family, impediments,
hindrances, cropping up of enemies etc.
KhalaAvastha-A planet defeated in waris in the khala
avastha. This planet gives financial losses, discord with the
wife, misunderstanding between the father and son and
mental distress in his dasa.
Kupita A vastha-A planet conjunct a malefic is in
kupita avastha and in the dasa of this planet the native is
unwise, diseased, financially troubled, feared of death and
relatives, feared of quarrel with the enemy, feared of
poisonous insects and of punishment from rulers etc.
Kerala Astrology 147
Peedita A vastha-If a planet is combust he is in peedita
avastha. In the dasa of such a planet the native experiences
disease, defeat, shame, insult, demotion etc.
Shakta A vastha-A strong planet is in shakta avastha.
The native does auspicious works in the dasa of such a
planet. He also gets prestige and increase of happiness in
this dasa.
(18) The 9th house is judged for the father, preceptor,
worship of deity, fortunes and prosperity. If the 9th house
and 9th lord are under the influence of the benefics, the
native achieves good fortunes and prosperity.
(19) If a malefic is conjunct the 9th lord, then in the
dasa of this malefic and the bhukti of a maraka or of the
lOth lord the father of the native dies.
(20) For the natives of Aries and Cancer Lagnas, the
father can die in the dasa of Jupiter placed in the 6th, 8th or
12th house and aspected by some planet.
The death of the father can occur in the Dasa of the
Sun or the malefic conjoined to the Sun. '
(21) If the 9th lord with the karaka of the 9th house
and also with a malefic or with the lords of the 6th, 8th or
12th is in the 9th or 5th house, the father of the native dies
before the birth of the native.
(22) If the 4th and 9th lords together are related to the
malefics, the father of the native dies soon after his birth.
(23) If the 9th lord is exalted, in Moolatrikona or own
sign, the native adds to the prestige and honour of his father
by his charities and good deeds.
(24) If the 5th and 9th lords exchange signs and both
are exalted, the father as well as the children of the native
are fortunate.
148 AG!impseof
(25) If the lords of the Lagna, 4th and 9th together are
in the 11th in a friendly sign, the native is fortunate in all
respect.

Notes-In old books the author generally takes up the
unrelated matter while he is in a certain chapter. This author
has also taken many points under the 9th house which are
unrelated to the 9th house. We have followed them as they
are because these matters are important and will prove
enlightening our readers.
TENTH HOUSE (Karma Bhava)

sign, weak, or placed in the 6th, 8th or 12th, the native is
either unemployed or does not get success in his profession.
