Re: Ketu and Rahu in same house?

ChandraLagna, what do you mean by "there are no houses in any Vargas/divisionals" ? There is plenty of evidence to the contrary in BPHS. Besides, if there were no houses in vargas, what would be the use of divisional charts ?

Re: Analysing Jeffrey P Bezos Chart Again and Verifying its Good Proxmity to His actual Birth Time

Mass is a purely physical attribute and it has nothing to do with effects on Jataka. Unless you think that planets are just chunks of rocks floating in space and magically influencing people on Earth through gravity or whatever, of course. Graha is a transcendental phenomenon and there are only nine...

Re: Analysing Jeffrey P Bezos Chart Again and Verifying its Good Proxmity to His actual Birth Time

"We will take Pisces as his Ascendant point as advocated by AstroSage and put in an additional planet, Chiron, ruling his 10th house Sagittariua going into his 12th house - Chiron was in Aquarius when Jeffrey P Bezos was born."

Chiron ? Seriously ? I thought this was a forum about vedic astrology.

Re: Different perspectives on Bhav Chalit explained

The correct question to ask in this case - is there solid evidence in favour of using any system other than "rashi equals house" that comes from rishi ? In BPHS there is none except a vague verse in a chapter about ashtakavarga as far as I know. Neither is there any such evidence in Jaimini sutras.

Re: Ascendant as start of first house.

[quote=coffeeday post_id=268235 time=1536063448 user_id=20048]
What I am given to understand is Parasara gave a dictum , that the ishtakala is the rising degree and first house starts with that degree .

How did you come to such understanding ?

Re: Vipareeta Raja Yoga doubts

VRY is one of the many modern myths in Jyotish. Planets give results according to the houses they rule and the houses they are situated in. The results of such combinations were described by Parashara in the chapter about the effects of bhava lords. E.g. 6th lord in the 12th house: the native will a...

Re: Panchmahapurush yogas Versus other yogas

Any yoga functions within the limits set by a horoscope. Panchmahapurush yoga is not an exception. If the birth time you provided is correct, it is not a surprise that this person is not religious or spiritual as you say, qualities that one would expect from a person with such a yoga in a birth char...

Re: Rahu/Ketu have 3rd and 11th house Aspect?

They have usual aspects - 100 % on 7th, 75 % on 4th, 50 % on 5th, etc. in addition to rashi aspects. I believe they do not have special aspects, like Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. People who try to devalue Rahu and Ketu on the basis of them being "shadowy", do not understand that these grahas possess al...

Re: Exaltation in true sense

If we take avashtas, exalted graha is considered to be in awakened state (which can be linked to sattwa guna) whereas debilitated graha is in deep sleep, which is tamas. I believe that is what Parashara meant in his chapter about predominant gunas in a horoscope, though there may be other factors as...

Re: Dr. Shanker Adawal - Some Rules Through Astrological Practice

I like how some people just invent rules easily. If you look closely though, some of them hardly make any sense. Moon in 4th harmful ? Nevermind it has high digbala in that house. Same case with Saturn. How can it be powerless in 7th, if it is the most potent house for Saturn ? Mercury in 4th - weak...

Re: Lords and Houses

"Could you please elaborate on this point? How are they different? For example, What is the difference between being the 6th Lord and being placed in 6th house?" 6th lord will always act as a functional malefic, bringing obstacles, diseases and enemies into one's life. Graha, placed in 6th house may...

Re: Lords and Houses

In BPHS in the chapter about yoga karakas it is explained that any planet owning 3, 6 and 11 houses will give evil effects. 3 and 11 are cruel houses because they promote one's ego, hence leading to illusions and suffering. That being said, it doesn't mean they are totally bad, - from a material sta...

Re: Bhava / Chalit Chart

Bhava chart is most likely a relatively recent invention. Nowhere does BPHS refer to it directly (at least in versions that I've come across). For me the most significant argument in favor of whole sign - house system is that if one uses houses based on degree of lagna, the same concept should be ap...

Re: Kemdrum Dosh

Hi, aquarian.sun. In order for Kemardum yoga to occur, there must be no planets (except Rahu/Ketu and the Moon itself) from Lagna or the Moon. Simply not having planets either in 12th or 2nd from the Moon is not enough for the formation of this yoga. It is worse to have malefic planets or planets in...

Hello, fellow astrologers ! In Hora shastra, maharishi Parashara explained how to create bhamsa (or saptavimsamsa) chart, also known as d-27. After explaining how to find deities for every of 27 divisions he said that "The bhamsa distribution commences from Aries and other movable signs for all the ...
