Vimshotri Dasha Results Planetary Period
IDENTIFYING RESULTS OF MAIN OR SUB-PERIOD LORDS
Events fructify in the sub-periods of indicative planets.
Therefore, it is very important that we understand the method of
analysing the dasa (main period) and bhukti (sub-period) results.
Though various types of conditional planetary periods for specific
combinations in a nativity are mentioned in classical texts,
Vimsottari dasa system has been mentioned for general applications.
Based on the longitude of the Moon in the natal charts, the balance
of operational Vimsottari dasa is calculated. Thereafter, the
planets have their main periods in seriatim. The order of the main
periods (dasa) under the Vimsottari dasa system is the dasa of the
Sun followed by the Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury,
Ketu and Venus. The following are the major period of planets under
the Vimsottari dasa, which they have in seriatim: Sun 6 years Moon
10 years Mars 7 years Rahu 18 years Jupiter 16 years Saturn 19
years Mercury 17 years Ketu 7 years Venus 20 years During the major
period of each planet all other planets share periods proportionate
to their period in the Vimsottari dasa. This share of period is
known as sub-period (bhukti) and the first sub-period in any
planets own main period is always its own, followed by other
planets in the seriatim mentioned above. 1. During the main period
of a FM, the sub period of a FM will cause sufferings. 2. During
the main period of a FM the sub period of a strong FB will bestow
3. During the main period of a FM the sub period of a weak
functional benefic will give only hopes which may not get
fulfilled. 4. During the main period of a FB the sub period of a
strong FB will bestow very good results. 5. During the main period
of a FB, the sub period of a weak FB will bestow average results
with mishaps during unfavorable transit influences. 6. During the
mainperiod of a FB, the sub period of a FM will cause mild
sufferings. 7. During the main period of a FM or a FB the sub
periods of a FM (if involved in close conjunction or aspect with
weak planets) will cause grave concerns and/or tragic happenings.
If the main period lord is a functional malefic, the sub-periods of
the other functional malefic planets cause lot of sufferings while
the sub-periods of functional benefic planets bestow good results
if they are strong. In the main period of a functional malefic
planet, the sub-periods of functional benefic planets create only
hopes if these functional benefic planets are weak. In the main
period of the functional benefic planets, the sub-periods of strong
functional benefic planets bestow very good results while the
sub-periods of weak planets bestow just average results with
mishaps during the unfavorable transit influences. During the main
period of the functional benefic planets, the sub-periods of
functional malefic planets cause mild sufferings. During the main
period of the functional benefic planets, the sub-period of
functional malefic planets involved in close conjunctions or
aspects with weak planets cause grave concerns and/or tragic
happenings. The results of the significations of the sub-period
lord depend upon its strength and conjunction(s)/aspect(s) to the
same, either natally or in transit. The significations of the house
of placement are touched when transit planets create benefic or
malefic influences on the sub-period lord. In the sub-period of any
planet other than Rahu or Ketu, the following significations are
touched:- (1) The general significations of the sub-period lord.
For example, the Sun rules father, social status, position with the
government, male child, digestive system, heart, blood pressure,
etc. (2) The significations of the house where the mooltrikona sign
of the sub-period lord is placed. In case some other functional
malefic planet influences the most effective point of this
mooltrikona house, during the sub-period of the ruling planet the
significations of the mooltrikona house shall not prosper and will
face problems indicated by the afflicting planet depending upon its
lordship. (3) The significations of the house(s) where the
sub-period lord is placed either natally or in transit. Similarly,
in the sub-periods of Rahu and Ketu, are touched not only their
general significations but also the significations of their houses
of placement as well as the
- significations of the planets that influence or are influenced
by Rahu or Ketu, either natally or in transit. The transit
influences supersede the sub-period influences.
Suppose 23 degree rises in the Ascendant. Therefore, the most
effective point of all the houses will be 23 degree. Any planet
conjunct within 5 degrees on either side i.e. within 18 degrees to
28 degrees in any house would be influencing the significations of
the house in question in a pronounced manner depending upon the
functional nature of that planet. The planet Moon is placed at 24
degrees in the third house in the sign Aquarius ruled by Saturn.
The Moon is most malefic planet (MMP) as it rules the eighth house.
Since the Moon is conjunct with the most effective point of the
third house, it not only mars the initiatives of the person but
during the sub-periods of both the Moon and Saturn it will not
allow any ventures/initiatives of the persons to succeed. The
aspect of the Moon to the most effective point to the ninth house
would also cause obstructions to the significations of the ninth
house during the sub-periods of both the Sun and the Moon. The Sun
is lord of the ninth house while the Moon is aspecting and
malefically influencing the ninth house. In such cases if the
planet Sun is placed and strong as in this case, the impact of the
influence of the Moon would be a little bit milder than if the Sun
is badly placed and weak. As the Saturn is badly placed in the
sixth house and is weak due to its being in the state of infancy,
the malefic impact on the third house and during the sub-periods of
the Moon and Saturn would be quite grave.
INTERACTION BETWEEN THE SUB-PERIODS AND TRANSIT"
During the course of the sub-period of a planet the
significations of the house ruled by the sub-period lord, the
general significations of the planet and the significations of the
house where the planet is placed would be touched.
The transit means when the planetary position on any given date
subsequent to the date of the birth is studied with reference to
the ascendant and the position of the planets in the natal
For example, let us take a chart with the sign Sagittarius
rising in the ascendant. In this chart the lord of the eleventh
house, Venus, is placed in the twelfth house, ruling losses. During
the sub-period of the Venus loss of elder brother, income and
trouble to friends is indicated. Now, in the transit the functional
malefics Rahu/Ketu may form close conjunction/aspect with any of
i) most effective point of the eleventh house. ii) the natal
position of Venus iii) the transit position of the sub-period lord,
The example chart pertains to a lady born 22nd December 1964, at
0850 hrs at Copenhagen 55N41' 12E'35 CE TIME (GMT + 1). In her case
Venus main period (dasa) Venus sub-period (bhukti) started on 24th
Oct 1981 and was to run up to 23rd February 1985. Now from the
horoscope we would see that an incident like loss of an elder
brother is seen in the sub-period of Venus as Venus ruling the
elder brother is placed in the house of losses. The transit Venus
was of 1 degree in the sign Capricorn on 2nd February 1982. It
apparently retrograded and came into contact with transit Ketu at
29 degrees in the sign Sagittarius on the 7th February 1982. Up to
the 21st February 1982, the transit Venus and transit Ketu were
within 3 degrees range. The sub-period lord was not only weak due
to its being in the state of infancy but it was in close
conjunction with Ketu. Ketu is also placed in the
house of losses in the natal chart and is having the
inclinations of causing loss with whatever planet it forms close
conjunction or aspect with, the native lost her elder brother.
(To understand previous discussion click here to see the
The sub-period lord sets the trends as per the lordship and the
placement of the planet, besides the other influences on the
planet. The transit planets cause influence whenever they come into
contact with the natal position or the transit position of the
We hope this gives better understanding into the interaction
between the transit results and the sub-period lord results with
the help of the above example.
Planets and Dasas by Mu'Min Bey, guest writer
One of the reasons Vedic Astrologers can size-up a chart and
predict outcomes so quickly is because each planet rules certain
houses depending on the Asc. So, for a Libra Asc, the best planet
is Saturn, because of its lordship of houses 4 and 5, whereas
Jupiter is not so good for a Libra, due to its rulership of houses
3 and 6. This is a very important principle
to remember, as the first planet a Vedic Astrologer should look
for is the best planet for a Lagan and then the not-so-good
planets. I cannot stress enough how important this procedure
Vas (Vedic Astrologers) can also size things up quickly based on
how a planet is placed - by sign, aspect, house
placement/rulership, and so on. Once you have been doing VA (Vedic
Astrology) for awhile, it just sort of comes to you in a flash; I
know that's how it works for me. When I look at a chart, and I see
Mars placed in the 5th house for a Sag Asc,
and I see that the person is due for a Mars Dasa in a minute, it
all comes together for me, and it takes about a minute or two. It's
really that simple.
Dasas, in a major way, are better at evaluating the overall
tenor and tone of a person's life than Western Astrology,
especially if that Dasa's a long one. Say, for example, you have a
person in a Saturn Dasa, and that Saturn is in Aries (very bad) in
the 7th house, for a Libra Asc. Now, keep in mind that Saturn's
Dasa will last for about 19 years, and in
this case, it started in the early 1990s. Right off the bat, you
can expect there to be a lot of pain associated with relationships
- loneliness, heavy burdens, frustration, a hard time getting into
or keeping relationships going, will be a big theme. Things like
this are very important.
The easiest way to evaluate Dasas are to just roll with what the
natural significations of that planet are, along with the house
that it sits in these are the areas in which you will be able to
see clearly how Dasas will operate for that person, and you will be
able to see the effects right away, especially if that planet
stands out somehow.
There are a lot of subtleties of Dasa interpretation and in due
course, I will write more about this. But I will say right now,
that your ability to correctly assess a Dasa is solely dependent
upon the nature of the relationship you make and have with the
The closer you become at one with the meanings of the Planets,
the better you will be able to feel their ebb and flow.
Now, what we have to remember, in Vedic Astrology, is that there
are TWO kinds of planets: benefic (good) and malefic (bad). On top
of that, there are TWO kinds of planetary states:
1. Natural Benefics and Natural Malefics 2. Functional Benefics
and Functional Malefics
The Natural Benefics are: Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. The
Natural Malefics are: Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu.
Functional benefic and malefic status depends on the Asc, and is
another reason why the Asc is so important. Really, it is the only
reason why most Vedic Astrologers want this kind of info, so they
can get a handle on what planets are good and which ones are not so
good. For any Asc, planets ruling the 6, 8, or 12 houses are not
ANY planet ruling the Asc is automatically good; planets ruling
the trines (5 and 9) are also good. Planets ruling the Kendras
(angular houses) are usually good as well. Planets ruling the 2 and
11 houses can be mixed, depending on other factors.
When Planets run their Dasas, what has to be kept in mind is
whether the planet is inherently good or bad, and whether it rules
a good or bad house. This is the first thing you should look
This is when a Planet either just begins its Dasa, or is nearing
the end of its Dasa. Classical books say that a planet that runs
both its major and minor periods at the same time is not good; for
example, Rahu/Rahu. This is because that Dasa is just getting off
the ground, and is like the dawn or the sunset - it's neither day
or night, and there is an
intermingling of energies going on, so it's not considered good.
Same goes for the end of a Dasa, like Rahu/Mars, because the Dasa
is losing strength.
How Planets Placed in Dasa Lord's Signs Impact the Quality of
Benefic planets that are placed in the Dasa Lord's signs can
greatly improve the overall strength and significations of said
Dasa. On the other hand, malefic planets occupying said Dasa Lord's
signs can greatly harm the Dasa, and the results it can give. Take
for example, Venus Dasa running in a chart, with Mars in Taurus,
and Rahu in Libra. On top of that, Venus is placed in the 12th
house, and Mars is placed in the 6th. Now, Venus, here, is greatly
damaged by both the occupancy of malefics in its signs, as well as
naturally malefic Mars aspecting Venus. This means that, although
there may be a great deal of sex going down here (12th house
placement of Venus, the aspect of Mars, Mars is a sexual
Rahu is in Venus' signs, and Venus also rules sex), trying to
get into a stable relationship is going to very difficult, and if
any of these planets has a tie-in to the 7th house from either the
Asc or the Moon, then it could be disastrous for the native.
Take another example, Jupiter Dasa with Mercury in Sag and Venus
in Pisces. Now, because there are two natural benefics placed in
Jupiter's Signs, Jupiter's Dasa will be very good, especially along
educational/intellectual and romantic lines. This is a simple rule
that cannot be overlooked.
Dasa of Rahu and Ketu...
Rahu and Ketu don't own any signs, and as such, can be difficult
to interpret. One way I have found helpful is to see whether Rahu
occupies signs of Mercury, and if Ketu occupies signs of Jupiter.
They tend to do better in these signs, and, if other factors agree,
can even bring very good and pleasant results. But even when the
Nodes are excellently placed,
they still have to give some trouble and confusion, because they
are, after all, natural malefics.
If Rahu and Ketu are angular, their effects will really be felt
during their Dasas; so a lot will depend on other factors in the
horoscope, as well as the Node's dispositors.
Rahu can, under certain conditions, give Raja-Yoga results. If
Rahu is placed in a Kendra (angular house) while at the same time,
it is aspected by the ruler of that Kendra, it will give Raja Yoga.
Same will be true if a natural benefic aspects Rahu in the same
position. Many famous people have such combinations - just last
night, I spoke of Vanessa Del
Rio's chart, she has this. So did Princess Di.
The Importance of Planetary Distances in Dasa
The way in which planets are placed from each other is vitally
important; if they are 1/1, 1/7, 5/9/, or 4/10, chances are good
that Dasas will flow into each other with little problem. However,
if planets are 2/12 or 6/8 from each other, their Dasas will be
very rough - one will end and another will start "off-key" so to
speak. This accounts for why some
people just seem to go off into something all together different
in their lives, from one path to another. This is also why people
can be doing very well in their lives and all of a sudden, things
go haywire, even if that planet isn't all that badly placed in the
horoscope. Planets being in good relationship to one another is
very important in Dasa analysis.
House Placement of the Dasa Lord...
The house a planet is placed in will really come to the
forefront during its Dasa. Additionally, certain houses are better
than others. Planets placed in the Konas (trines, 5 and 9) will
tend to do better than planets placed in the Triks (6, 8, or 12).
Planets placed in Kendras will really exert a lot of power during
their Dasas, as the Kendras are the Power
Zones of the Horoscope. Planets placed in the 2 and 11 houses
will give results dependent on whether they are naturally benefic
or malefic, and on other factors.
There are other factors, but the above should help you out in
learning how to analyze the strength and overall trend of a
As the Vimshottari dasa follows a 120 year cycle one will not
experience the mahadasa of all the planets in ones life. Depending
on by how many degrees,
moon has traveled in the nakshatra at the time of birth, the
first dasa gets reduced proportionately. In every mahadasa of a
planet there are sub
divisional dasas of other planets called Antardasas. The first
antardasa is that of the mahadasa planet, followed by the other
planets in sequence.
Following the same principle, the antardasas are further sub
divided into Pratyantardasas and so on till we can arrive at the
dasas at a daily basis or even
hourly basis. The chart of the dasas of the example horoscope,
given here to the left illustrates this.
The predictions and the timing of events is done by taking into
account the planets involved in the dasa, the antardasa,
pratyantardasa etc., their
strengths, nature etc. as studied before. The following
principles are kept in mind while analyzing a horoscope for dasa
Let us say that we want to see when the native will get a house.
The 4th house rules the house and property related matters. Hence
examine the 4th lord,
in whose house he is placed, with whom he is placed, who is
aspecting him. Then examine the planets placed in the 4th house or
the planets aspecting
the 4th house. Then the placement of the above in the Vargas,
their strengths etc and whether well placed in houses or not and
whether involved in any
raja yoga combinations etc. When the native is going through the
dasa or antardasas of any of these favorably placed planets, good
results for the house
can be expected.
However the timing of event cannot be done only on the basis of
dasa. The Gochara or the transit of planets must also be studied.
Some times in spite of
favourable results, if the Gochara is very adverse then the
favourable results may not take place and vice versa
Mahadasa of Planets Vedic Astrology
Analysis of Main and Sub Periods of planets in vedic astrology
Birth Chart is of as much importance as the Birth Chart itself.
This is so because the results of planetary placement
in vedic astrology horoscope are conferred upon the native
during the operation of main and/or sub period(s) of relevant
Many times it does happen that the native is deprived of having
positive results of benefic planetary placement and Raj Yogas in
his vedic astrology horoscope. This is simply
because the Operating planetary period may not be having any
direct or indirect relation with the planet(s) creating auspicious
yoga or combination in the vedic astrology birth
chart.In order to have absolute clarity on this issue of vedic
astrology readings, let me site one beautiful example to help you
understand it in a better way.
Vedic Astrology readings Shri Amitabh Bachchan Birth Chart
This is the vedic astrology horoscope of famous Indian Celebrity
Shri Amitabh Bachchan. The ascendant is Aquarius and four planets
namely the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus
are in eighth house of the birth chart, which is not an
auspicious placement of planets as per vedic astrology. Out of
these four planets, Yogakarka Venus is debilitated and
combust. Mars and Mercury are also combust. Apparent placement
of these planets indicate troubles and problems in the life of Shri
Amitabh Bachchan on account of
professional and financial problems.
But, nothing like that seemed to have taken place in the life of
Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. The reason behind this was the operation of
Jupiter and Saturns mahadasas during
prominent years of life.
Shri Amitabh Bachchan was born on 11th October 1942 during the
mahadasa/main-period of Rahu, which remained operational till Feb
1955. As Rahu is well placed in the
seventh house and not having any other influence over it; nor
having any relationship with badly placed planets. There were no
significant negative results during that period.
Vedic Astrology readings for the mahadasa of Jupiter: The
mahadasa/main-period of Jupiter, which is placed in sixth house of
birth chart, remained operational till February
1971. As per birth chart astrology readings, Jupiter is a
malefic and non-supportive planet for Aquarius Lagna/Ascendant.
During Jupiters MD Shri Amitabh Bachchan was
struggling in his career.
Astrology readings for the mahadasa of Saturn: The MD of Saturn
started from March 1971 and remained operational till February
1990. And, it is needless to mention the
success and rise that Shri Amitabh Bachchan achieved in his
career during this period.
As per birth chart astrology readings, the reason is simple.
Saturn as lagna lord is strongly placed in fourth house of the
birth chart devoid of any malefic influence over it. In
addition to this, Saturn aspects the lagna and Ketu, which is
also placed in Lagna/Ascendant. Strong and well placed Saturn, not
having any relation with negative planets, was
quite capable of giving the enormous rise in his career. This MD
of Saturn was also helpful in dealing with the injury which
troubled him severely during the antardasa of malefic
Moon in the year 1982 while he was doing the stunt in the movie,
Vedic Astrology readings for mahadasa of Mercury: After Saturns
mahadasa, the mahadasa of Mercury started from March 1990 to
February 2007. In vedic astrology
horoscope of Shri Amitabh Bachchan, Mercury is combust and rules
over fifth and eighth houses. As per the vedic astrology readings,
the dasa of combust planet causes lot of
problems in life; and therefore, during the mahadasa/main-period
of combust Mercury, Shri Amitabh Bachchan had to face the extreme
negative situations in his life. The
problems were severe during the antardasas of Venus, Sun, Moon
and Mars i.e. from August 1993 to August 1999. It was only during
the antardasa/sub-period of well placed
and strong Rahu (September 1999 to March 2002) that he could
find some solutions for the acute problems.
Therefore, while doing the birth chart astrology readings, one
has also to analyze and conclude, if the operational planetary
period is supportive for the native or otherwise.
Operation of mahadasa/main-period of a planet which is not
favorable in the birth chart during youth time of a native (18 36
years); may deny the native of the auspicious
results, which are otherwise present in the birth chart.
The birth chart astrology readings can help you to take
appropriate action in accordance with the operational main period
in your birth chart. The vedic astrology readings include
use of Gem Therapy, specifically designed and easy to perform
astrological remedies, expected future insights and personal
counseling on almost all aspects of your life. Vedic
Astrology readings can work as a life savior during unfavorable
situations; while during favorable situations in your life, the
vedic astrology readings can safe-guard your interest
Dasa systems are a hallmark of Vedic astrology. Vedic astrology
has hundreds of dasa system. Each dasa system divides ones life
into periods, sub-periods, sub-sub-periods and
so on. All the periods are ruled by different planets or rasis.
Some dasa systems are planet-based and some are rasi-based. Each
dasa system is good at showing events of a
specific nature. For each dasa system, we have some standard
rules, based on which we analyze the natal chart and attribute
different results to different periods and sub-periods.
Each dasa system comes with rules for dividing ones life into
periods and sub-periods and rules for attributing different results
to different periods, based on the planetary
positions in the natal chart. These periods are called dasas or
mahadasas (MD). Sub-periods are called antardasas (AD).
Sub-sub-periods are called pratyantardasas (PD).
Some dasas are good at showing matters related to longevity and
death. They are called ayur dasas (dasas of longevity). Some dasas
are good at showing general results. They
are called phalita dasas (dasas of general results).
Mind is a very important part of our existence and Moon governs
it. Some dasas are computed based on the nakshatra occupied by Moon
and they are called nakshatra dasas.
Some dasas are based on the rasis occupied by planets and they
are called rasi dasas.
We will learn about 10 different dasa systems in these lessons
and many more dasas and dasa variations are available in Jagannatha
Hora software. Readers should not look at
these dasas as different alternatives to look at the same life
event. They should instead be looked at as ways to look at various
aspects of the same life event. Different dasas
systems provide different angles to look at the kaleidoscope of
Some of the dasas taught in these lessons are limited to
specific matters. For example, we should look at Drigdasa for
spiritual progress and we should look at Sudasa for money
and wealth. Like that, some dasas are limited to specific
Prediction Using the Vimshottari Dasha System
The dasha system used most commonly is called the Vimshottari
Dasha System. The dashas are the planetary cycles of a life based
on the placement of the Moon at birth.
9 Cycles of 9 Planets equal 120 years There are nine cycles
which include the seven planets, plus the north and south nodes of
the Moon (Rahu, Ketu). The outer planets are not used. Each cycle
has a designated allotment of years that combine to equal a grand
total of 120 years. The ruler of the ruling planet of each dasha is
determined by the 27 nakshatras. Each nakshatra is ruled by one of
the nine planets and follows in the same sequential order. So where
the natal Moon is placed this nakshatra, and the ruling planet of
that nakshatra, initiates the beginning of the order of the cycles
of life. The planet that rules the main cycle of the dasha is
called the maha dasha (major dasha). Within this cycle there are
sub cycles called the bhukti. The ruling planets of the maha dasha
and the bhukti are then further referred to in the chart by their
house rulerships, dispositors, and the houses they are in. Using
transits together with current dashas will prove their predictive
The first nakshatra (Ashwini) is ruled by Ketu, followed by
Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mercury. The
same sequential order is then twice repeated to complete all 27
nakshatras. Each dasha or planetary cycle has a different length
of years: Ketu is 7 years, Venus 20 years, Sun 6 years, Moon 10
years, Mars 7 years, Rahu 18 years, Jupiter 16 years, Saturn
19 years, Mercury 17 years.
Maha Dasha and Bhukti Rulers We use the nakshatras like a
western astrologer uses the signs in terms of rulership. The
nakshatras are all ruled by a planet and this ruling planet is used
in prediction for both the results of the dasha periods and the
transiting planets. The maha dasha and bhukti ruling planet will be
analyzed in terms of its house placement, house rulership but the
true result this dasha will produce will be based on the planet
that rules the nakshatra the dasha ruling planet is in. The
nakshatra ruling planet of the dasha will be assessed by the house
it is in and rules.
Transits of the Dasha Rulers The most important transiting
planets to focus on here are the dasha rulers. When you are in maha
dasha Jupiter and Mars bhukti then the most important planets in
transit will be Jupiter and Mars. Additionally the natal placements
of these two planets will be magnified when triggered by the
transiting planets in a chart.

Sub Cycles Bhuktis and Antara Dashas Within a maha dasha there
are sub cycles called the bhuktis or antara dashas. Each maha dasha
is divided into nine sub cycles that are also ruled by planets.
Again these bhuktis have sub divisions within them called antara
dashas. There are further divisions that go down to at least seven
levels. I use only the first three levels as beyond that they seem
to get more and more subtle (and too complicated) for me. The maha
dasha will always be the overall emphasis, the bhukti will be the
more immediate and the antara dasha will be more personal. I find
the bhukti will reveal the current events in a life.

of both the maha dasha ruler and bhukti, what houses are these
dispositors in. The results of the dasha will be seen through both
dispositors but especially the nakshatra dispositor. 4. Look at
the maha dasha as the new ascendant (lagna). The entire results of
this dasha can be seen through the house placements of the other
planets in relation to this new
ascendant. As an entire maha dasha is experienced an individual
will go through the experience of each planetary bhukti within that
maha dasha period.
*Assess the planets placements from the maha dasha ruler. If
there are more than 2 planets in the opposite house of the maha
dasha ruler then you know relationships will be the pressing issue
of that dasha period. Planets placed 7th from one another will deal
with relationships, marriage or divorce. If there are many planets
that are 8 houses from the maha dasha ruler then that dasha will
have enormous change and experiences involving death of loved
The bhukti rulers placement and relationship to the dasha ruler
tells what the experience will be.
Count from the Maha dasha ruling planet to the bhukti ruling
planet in forward direction (clockwise). Count the house the Maha
dasha ruling planet as house #1, then count from the bhukti ruling
planet forward back to the maha dasha ruling planet. Always begin
counting the house the planet is in as #1.
Spacial Relationships of the Bhukti Ruling Planet counted from
the Maha Dasha Ruler 1/1: concentrates on the matters signified by
the house the planets are in 7/7: about relationships/connection
with other people, marriages and divorce 2/12: gains/losses, money
matters 3/11: friendly, competitive, learning, travel and
achievement of desires 4/10: action, power, purpose, changes in
career or work and changes in residence 5/9: benefic, auspicious,
luck, travel, spiritual development 6/8: difficult, losses,
enemies, death of loved ones, health problems

How to use a house relative to a house
It simple -
Comsider the house you want to analyze as the Lagna Huse and see
its various features the same way. Take an illustration - Take 7th
house. Now 7th house is the house of the spouse. 2nd from 7th house
is the 8th house. 2nd from 7th house is the house of wealth and
speech for the spouse. Similarly 4th from 7th house i.e. your 10th
house is the house of hapiness for the spouse. And so on and so
forth. Another illustration - Consider 4th house which is the house
of Mother. Now 8th from 4th house i.e. your 11th house is the house
of age for mother. 6th from 4th house i.e. your 9th house is the
house of diseases for mother.
NAVAMSA and its Hidden Concepts
Almost all of the Indian Vedic astrologers and many of the
western astrologers too consider this chart as one of the most
important charts after Lagan chart and Shastyamsa (D-60) chart.
Reason is simple, there are many aspects of native's life which
can be seen and understood from this chart only. No other chart can
even dare to give those detailed clues which Navamsa chart can
easily provide at one glance.
Yes I know that many of the learned members must be
contemplating and assuming that we already know well about this
chart, so there is no need for us to read this post but still I beg
your pardon to write something more about this chart.
We generally have a lot of expectations from our spouse or would
be spouse but when those expectations doesn't get fulfilled or met
which is generally the case, then we tend to start the blame
Comments like you should have done this, you should not take me
for granted, why you always keep fighting with me, why dont you
respect me, you never acknowledge me.......etc
Now if you closely observe all of the above comments, which are
the part and parcel of any relationship......then you would find
that, in some or the other way we are in a habit of finding fault
with our spouse or partner....I am not saying that your partner can
never be at fault ...but the point is.....even if he or she has 1
fault then out of the 100 good points, the partner will always be
able to find or identify that one fault, focus on it consistently
keeping aside all the good habits which your partner invariably
In fact most of the times that 1 fault of your partner becomes
everything for you which in turn provokes you to blast
him/her...then and there...
NOW...coming to the point....please dont mind ...these stories
and introduction are always necessary to bring you all on my
Actually Navamsa chart operates more on an astral plane rather
than on a materialistic plane.....Its reflects all the weaknesses
which we have all-through but fail to acknowledge them....In other
words your spouse is nothing but your own reflection which you have
Couples say that we two are absolutely different
personalities...but they forget that they are the different sides
of the same coin....
Habits which your partner have....are nothing but your own
subtle expectations of which you are also unaware about......and
all these habits can be understood deeply by analyzing the Navamsa
Divorces happen because your other side of personality (unknown
to you)...when comes in front of you...in the form of your
spouse....then it gives a big shock to you....
Then you say that I never deserved this....he/she was not meant
for me....he/she has changed ......
and point is ...he/she ....has not changed but the destiny has
shown you the MIRROR......
When your own hidden negative qualities come to you through your
spouse......then you express SHOCK....... in-spite of the fact that
you were already nurturing those qualities inside you for a long
This is the irony of the concept....
CRUX is...SEE THE UNKNOWN SIDE of your personality (Good or bad)
in the Navamsa chart
People who have no hidden negative qualities or know about their
negative qualities...their...D-9 chart supports their lagan chart
or compliments their lagan chart....and we all know that when this
happens then the native RISE in life...and hence are much more
fortunate in life .......Reason is now clear......
Their SOUL matches with their actions.....as a result whatever
work they will do...will have purity......so the success rest with
them.....these people never hide anything from them....they are
open enough to know about their negative qualities and rectify
them.....people who are afraid to look deep inside
themselves.....are left behind in the race of life......looking at
you own negative qualities means you are honest to yourself...and
when you are honest to yourself...you will honest to others
too....as a result GOD will always be there at your back....
If you are doing bad deeds...then obviously ...you will not be
able to look into your own eyes.....and this would be visible from
your D-9 chart...
Few other concepts
1) Analyze your Navamsa lord of 7th lord(From lagan chart)...in
This will give you the information about, what are the qualities
which helps you to hold your relationship...or the qualities which
you and your spouse cherish...and because of which you two are
For example....take Scorpio lagan ...Venus becomes the 7th
lord(take the corrected lordship from cusp chart).....now suppose
Venus is placed in Capricorn in d-9....now the lord of this rashi
is Saturn....see the strength, placement, conjunctions...of this
Saturn in LAGAN chart...
2) See the placement of Navamsa lagan lord in Navamsa chart.
Now observe how the native inherently behaves with his/her
If it is placed in 6th house: native will tend to fight with
8th house: native will hide the things from his spouse and will
not be transparent.
12th house: The native would be indifferent for his or her
3) See the placement, strength, conjunctions of the Navamsa
lagan lord in lagan chart.
This will give you the information about, how the native behaves
with his spouse in front of the whole world...
4) Spouse should be seen from 7th house of Navamsa chart.
How will he/she behaves with the native...
Apply the 2nd and 3rd points likewise.....
Few more concepts
1) Kind of relationship between the native and his spouse can
also be judged by the intensity of friendship between the lagan
lord and Navamsa lagan lord.
But careful analysis should be done before jumping to any
For ex: If a native has Scorpio ascendant and Virgo ascendant is
in Navamsa... then though mars and mercury are enemies.....but if
Jupiter happens to be in Navamsa lagan then since Jupiter is the
freind of mars ....so the bad influence would be reduced....an
astrologer should be very careful while analyzing things...
2) If the lord of Navamsa lagan is present in 2nd or 11th house
of lagan chart then the spouse will bring wealth to the
3) If Lord of the Navamsa happens to be in lagan or 7th or 9th
house of lagan chart...then marriage would be auspicious and
But again remember...do not jump to conclusions
immediately....this Navamsa lagan lord should NOT be debilitated,
com-bust,in enemy sign,under any kind of malefic influence etc
etc...otherwise results will not come to pass....
