3.0 General Observations

Humanity is divided into 3 main divisions, viz., masculine, feminine and eunuch.

There are any number of sub-divisions among them and the phenomena of

potency or vitality among the above three classes are remarkable. There are men

with perfect masculine development, but almost without powers of erection or

penetration. There are some women who have hardly any sexual excitements and

desire for copulation. They evade or reject sexual offers and applications. On the

other hand, there are Napumsakas or eunuchs who have strong sexual excitements,

and desires, but without suitable organs for such functions. Again there are men

and women, who have tremendous sexual energy and who are not satisfied with

ordinary sexual embraces and

seek gratification even in unnatural ways. Some men and women have no

inclination for sexual congress. There are some who have the development of the

masculine and feminine organs in a mild form, and there are a who have these two

organs in good perfection, so much so that as females they have regular menses

and at the same time as males, they have enjoyment with other females. Cases,

where such beings having fully developed male and female organs in one and the

same person, have been brought to notice both by medical practitioners and also

by the general public at different times.

But, whether such Ardha Nariswaras both man and woman together developed in

one and the same body, have ever become pregnant and brought forth issues, has

not been recorded. There are some more peculiar phenomena among human

beings, which deserve special mention here. While we were about 16 years old, a

man was introduced to us by our elder paternal uncle Venkatesayya who was

Sheristedar at Chickballapur near Bangalore as Obalachari, who had been

Obalamma before. The facts were these. He was born as a girl in a poor but

respectable Brahmin family, and was married in his 9th year to a Brahmin youth of

twenty. Till then the development of all organs were strictly feminine, otherwise


there could not have been a marriage of a girl to a young man. But from her 12th

year, the male organ began to develop and the feminine organ began to close up.

At 16 Obalamma became Obalachari with all the full development of male organs

and signs and as the phenomenon was strange, a few elders joined together in a

meeting; examined Obalamma, found in her no trace of feminine sexual organ, but

a fully developed masculine organ; the marriage was cancelled and Obalachari

married a girl and had several children from her.

One of his sons became an Amildar in the Mysore service, and there are now some

grand children of Obalachari formerly Obalamma. We could not believe such a

story but not only our uncle vouched for the truth of this, but Obalachari himself

confirmed the same. Our uncle had gone to the marriage of Obalamma first and

then again to his marriage when he became Obalachari. The history written by an

Androgyne and published by the Medico Legal Journal confirms such instances.

Only the other day a bull was brought to us by some of these Gangareddi players

which had the full development of the male and the female organs with one halfsized

leg sticking above the female organ. The fellow is making a lot of money by

exhibiting this Cow-bull in different villages. When the females had no seat in the

American Senate 50 years ago, a senator was challenged as a woman not fit to sit

in the Assembly, although he was living with a wife.

The question of his sex came up before the Senate and the medical examinations

confirmed his dual sexuality. The doctors said that he had regular menses and he

had also masculine organ by which he was enjoying a woman. He also had his

lovers. In some cases the sexual organs are well developed and pronounced; in

other cases they are illformed or imperfectly developed. All astrological writers

are agreed in attaching great importance to the phenomena of menses in a female

and elaborate rules have been framed by the ancient writers on astrology to

examine the characteristics, morality, spirituality, progress, issues and prosperity of

the girl from the time and the combination of planets when she attains her puberty.

Certain events, which are common to males and females, have to be predicted by

the Lagna and Chandra at the time of their birth.


4.0 Female Peculiarities

There are certain other events which are peculiar to females and which have to be

predicted by the Arthava Lagna or the sign that rises at the time of the first

appearance of the menses. There are two Lagnas both for men and women, viz.,

the rising sign or Janma Lagna at the time of birth and Janma Rasi or the sign

occupied by the Moon. The odd signs are called cruel and the even signs are called

mild. From the birth Lagna must be ascertained the complexion, beauty and


genera appearance of the woman and the 8th house from Lagna must be consulted

for her marital life and widowhood. From the 7th house from Lagna her sexual

passions, her husband’s character, her fortune and her general happiness have to

be found out. The 5th house from Lagna has to be examined to find out her

pregnancy, he issues, conceptions and abortions.

If the birth or Chandra falls in even signs she will have feminine characteristics. If

they have beneficial aspects or conjunctions, the female will be beautiful, will have

ornaments, and will be respected. If the Lagna and Chandra fall in odd signs, she

will be masculine in appearance and temper, bad character sorrowful; if these two,

Lagna and Chandra, are combined with or aspected by cruel planets, her character

will be bad and sinful. In judging of these results, the astrologer has great

difficulties and has to use much discretion in predicting the results. Take some

illustrations; Kataka is Lagna with Kuja there and aspected by Sani. Lagna is even

and the girl ought to be good, but the presence of Kuja in debilitation with the

aspect of Sani will make her a whore and of bad character.

There are some women, bad in morality but otherwise respectful and agreeable in

behaviour. There are some others who are moral gems, but disrespectful and

quarrelsome in behaviour. In the above case say Chandra is also in Kanya an even

sign and is aspected by Guru or Sukra. Say Makara is Lagna and Kuja and Sani are

there. Makara is an even sign with Kuja in exaltation and Sani in his own house.

Now do the planets here give the same results as they do in Kataka? Kataka as

Lagna with Kuja and Guru, with Sani and Ravi, with Sukra and Sani, with Kuja

and Sukra, with Rahu and Ravi; with Ketu and Chandra will and must produce

certainly different results. Suppose Mesha as Lagna with Sani and Kuja, Sani and

Rahu, Sani and Guru, Sani and Chandra, and Sani and Sukra they will produce

characteristics of a different kind and the student should be very careful in his


Take Kataka as Lagna with Guru in it. He will be in exaltation, and if he has no

evil aspects he will produce a woman of great majesty, excellent character, virtuous

behaviour and generous disposition. Suppose Makara is Lagna. Here both Kataka

and Makara are even signs and in both we have Guru the most beneficial among

the planets. But in Makara, Guru is debilitated and as such the woman cannot be

one of exceptional character. There is great difference in the signs themselves.

Kataka is a beneficial sign and when the Moon is full, it will be quite auspicious.

But when the Moon is weak as in Amavasya, the sign will not be so powerful.

Makara is an evil sign by nature and Guru there is bad both because Makara is an

evil sign and also because Guru is in debilitation.

Suppose Thula becomes Lagna with Sani in it and Mesha becomes Lagna with Sani

in it. The difference in the character and behaviour of the girl will be very great.

Say a female is adulterous and objectionable but will have the knack to treat her

husband with apparent love and consideration and thus give no room for


complaint as a wife, then he thinks he is happy. But if the woman is adulterous and

takes a defiant stand to her husband, admits her lovers in his presence an causes

him great discomfort and pain, the case is different. There is some difference

between the two women, although morally both are bad. Take a woman, not given

to much adultery, but attached to one bad man, and tries to poison or kill her

husband. Her character is certainly reprehensible and she cannot be classed with

the other two. Therefore, in judging of planetary influences, great discretion must

be used. Odd signs are cruel, Nararasis or masculine. Even signs are mild, feminine

or Strirasis. When both Chandra and Lagna fall in odd signs and evil planets

occupy or aspect them; the nature of the woman will be thoroughly bad. Even

among cruel or odd signs there is, and there must be great difference in producing

the evil effects. Mesha, Mithuna, Simha, Thula, Dhanus and Kumbha are odd and

cruel signs, but they are owned by malefic and benefic planets. Mesha is ruled by

Kuja, Mithuna by Budha, Simha by Ravi, Thula by Sukra; Dhanus by Guru, and

Kumbha by Sani. When the Lagna of a girl falls in any one of then or Chandra

occupies any one of these, her characteristics will differ.


Combinations for Prostitutes

The characteristics of girls all over the world are characterised by a surprising and

wonderful variety and these are accounted for by the permutations and

combinations of rasis, constellations, planets and the various states ascribed to

these in different places. Take Aries. Kuja in its first degree is not the same as

when he is in the second. Ravi in the first degree of Mesha is not the same as Ravi

in the 10th or 30th degree of that sign. Similarly every planet in every sign has

changes in nature. These wonderful varieties of planets in degrees, bhavas, and

signs account for the endless variety we find in the bad or good nature of the

people born under their influences. Vrishabha is an even sign and one owned by

Sukra. If Chandra is there she will be a good girl. Suppose she is born when the

Moon is in the 1st, 3rd, 10th or 30th degree of Vrishabha. Common sense tells us

that the Moon is not in Paramochha or in deep exaltation in the 1st, 10th or 30th

degree, but he is in deep exaltation in the 3rd degree. In the 30th degree the Moon

will be in Peedavastha or in a state of humiliation as he is in the last part of that


Therefore, students in astrology have heavy responsibilities in the art of prediction

whose success depends upon a very correct grasp of all these minute points. The

mathematical portion of astrology becomes an absolute necessity, when the planets

have to be taken in their various divisions and degrees they occupy. These delicate

demarcations should be carefully studied and specially remembered in predicting

the fortunes of girls, their personal appearance, modesty, dignity and other


characteristics. We shall now take the readers to Thrimsamsas whose influences

are minutely marked by writers in astrology on female horoscopy. Take Lagna or

Chandra and find out who is the most powerful of the two. Having done so, find

out where the Lagna and Chandra is in the Thrimsamsa. For ready reference, we

will give here how to find out the Thrimsamsas. Thrimsamsa means 1/30th of a sign

or one degree. Each sign, as our readers know, contains 30 degrees. In odd signs

the Thrimsamsas ere distributed thus.

Kuja 5 degrees

Sani 5 do.

Guru 8 do.

Budha 7 do.

Sukra 5 do.


Total 30 do.

Here the first five degrees are governed by Kuja; the next five degrees by Sani; the

next eight degrees by Guru; the next seven degrees by Budha; and the last five

degrees by Sukra. In the even signs the reverse holds good. Thus in an even sign:

Sukra 5 degrees

Budha 7 do.

Guru 8 do.

Sani 5 do.

Kuja 5 do.


Total 30 do.

The first five degrees are governed by Sukra; next seven by Budha; next eight by

Guru; next five by Sani; and the last five by Kuja.

Ravi and Chandra have no lordships in Thrimsamsa. If the Lagna or Chandra falls

in Mesha or Vrischika, and Kuja Thrimsamsa falls, the girl will become a prostitute

before her puberty. The girl will have sexual connections with men before she

attains her age of maturity. If she is born in Sukra Thrimsamsa, she will become

adulterous. In these two cases, the girl becomes wicked but with this difference. In

the first case, the combination is more cruel and she will have sexual connection

before she attains her age. This is considered more sinful than adultery after

puberty. In the second case, she will become adulterous after she attains her age.

In the first there is double sin and in the second there is a single sin. If she is born

in Budha Thrimsamsa, she becomes a very cunning woman.

The word used is Mayavi or one who is clever and cunning. She will be able to

conceal her evil actions by clever subterfuges. If the birth falls in Guru

Thrimsamsa, the girl will become virtuous, modest, dignified and respectful. If she


is born in Sani Thrimsamsa, she becomes a servant or a dependent. Service itself is

not evil except it is beggarly and may lead to sinful temptations. Many servant

women are chaste while many rich women are shameless. If Lagna or Chandra

falls in a Kanya or Mithuna and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises at the time, the woman

becomes cunning and dissimilating; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises , she becomes a

whore; if Budha Thrimsamsa rises, the woman will be possessed of excellent

qualities; if Guru Thrimsamsa rises, the girl becomes virtuous, graceful and loving;

if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she will become impotent, that is, she does not like sexual

operations. If Chandra or birth falls in Vrishabha and Thula, if Kuja Thrimsamsa

rises, she becomes a bad character; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a good

and learned woman; if Budha Thrimsamsa rises, the girl becomes skilful and

professor of music; if Guru Thrimsamsa rises, her nature will be noble, generous

and virtuous; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she marries another after her first marriage.

If Chandra or Lagna falls in Kataka, and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises, she will have a

free adulterous course; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes immoral; if Budha

Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes learned in arts and sciences; if Guru Thrimsamsa

rises, she will be blessed with admirable qualities; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she will

kill her husband. If Chandra or Lagna falls in Simha and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises,

she will have masculine qualities or becomes very talkative; if Sukra Thrimsamsa

rises, she becomes adulterous; if Budha Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes masculine

in temperament; if Guru Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a queen or the wife of a

ruler; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she will give up her caste and go to other castes. If

Lagna or Chandra falls in Dhanus or Meena, and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises, she

becomes a good lady; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes adulterous; if Budha

Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a clever artist; if Guru Thrimsamsa rises, she will

be blessed with all good qualities; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she will have little

sexual desires. Budha and Sani are impotent planets or eunuchs.

If Chandra or Lagna falls in Makara or Kumbha and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises, she

becomes a servant; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a wicked woman; if

Guru Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a loving wife; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she

becomes fond of low class men.


Precautions in Predictions

The readers’ attention is drawn to certain facts in making predictions about the

character of women. There are many delicacies which should be particularly noted.

In the above paras the expression used is “If Chandra or Lagna” falls in so and so.

Chandra and Lagna may fall in one and the same sign or each may fall in a

different house. Now let us take first Chandra in Vrishabha. He is exalted there,


and the sign itself is a beneficial and mild one owned by a benefic planet Sukra. A

woman born when Kuja Thrimsamsa rises in Vrishabha becomes a bad one.

If Mesha has Lagna or Chandra in it and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises, the woman will

have sexual connection before her marriage. Chandra in Mesha is not as good as

he is in Vrishabha. Mesha is a masculine sign and its lord Kuja is an evil planet.

Take Lagna or Chandra in Vrischika. Chandra here is in debilitation and if Kuja

Thrimsamsa rises, the girl will have connection before marriage. Then what is the

difference between Kuja Thrimsamsa rising when Chandra is in Mesha, Vrishabha

or Vrischika? In these three cases the girl becomes adulterous. Astrology lays

down this result. But the astrologer must make some difference even in such cases

of adultery. A woman sleeps with a rich and agreeable sort of man, she yields her

embraces to an ordinary man under passion before marriage, she will commit

adultery with a street beggar out of violent passion.

In all these cases, the girl is guilty of immoral actions. But even then there is some

difference. A woman going wrong after marriage and before marriage, after

puberty, and before puberty, with a rich man and a poor beggar cannot and will

not have the same sins or same happiness. The impulses will not be the same and

the measure of pleasure and pro fit will considerably differ. Suppose Sani is also in

Mesha with Chandra, and both occupy the Kuja Thrimsamsa. The girl will commit

adultery with a dirty and sorrowful loafer in the street. Suppose Chandra is in

Kataka with Guru there and both are in Kuja Thrimsamsa. The result predicted

there is that the girl will have plenty of lovers. But when Guru is there, she will

have respectable and gentlemanly lovers, if she commits adultery at all. But

suppose Kuja is there in his own Thrimsamsa. She will become a prostitute with a

street loafer. Immoral and sinful prostitution is there, but there are various grades

in it and all prostitutions cannot be ranked on the same level. A woman may err

once in her life, she may secretly repeat her sins occasionally and she may be a

shameless wretch of the first water in the open market.

Now the results of planetary positions in the rasis and navamsas will be given. If

Sukra and Sani occupy each other’s navamsas in any rasi, if they aspect each other

in the navamsas or if Lagna falls in Vrishabha or Thula and the rising navamsa is

Kumbha, the girl becomes extremely passionate and not being satisfied by

masculine embraces, will seek sexual gratification from women who put on leather

male organs and engage her in such sinful embraces. Varieties of sins, both heinous

and light, have been recorded from time immemorial. If Sukra occupies Kuja

navamsa in any rasi or Kuja combines in Sukra navamsa, the woman becomes a

self-willed whore. If Ravi and Chandra occupy the 7th from Lagna, tile woman

commits adultery with the consent of her husband. If Kuja navamsa rises in the 7th

bhava and has the aspect of Sani, the woman will have a diseased sexual organ.

If a beneficial navamsa rises in the 7th bhava or has beneficial conjunction, she will

have a fine sexual organ and beautiful buttocks and will be loved by her husband.


If the 7th falls in Makara or Kumbha or those navamsas rise in the 7th bhava her

husband will be an old and stubborn fellow. If the 7th falls in Mesha or Vrischika,

or these navamsas rise in that bhava, her husband will be immoral and shorttempered.

If Vrishabha or Thula falls in the 7th or those navamsas rise at the time

of birth, the woman will be handsome and blessed with amiable qualities. If the 7th

happens to be Kanya or Mithuna or those navamsas rise at birth, the husband will

be learned and intellectual. If Kataka or that navamsa rises at birth, the husband

will be immoral and sympathetic. If Dhanus or Meena rises at birth or that

navamsa, the husband will be blessed with good behaviour and will be highly

moral and virtuous. If the 7th navamsa rises in Simha or Simha becomes 7th house,

the husband will become engaged in various commercial concerns and will be



Sources of Strength and Weakness

In all these cases predictions should be based on a careful analysis of the various

sources of strength and weakness of the planets. If Mesha rises as the 7th navamsa

and is occupied by Guru, or if it rises with Sani in it or Kuja or any other planet,

the results will vary with the nature of the planet. Mesha navamsa may rise as the

7th in Thula Lagna and Vrischika navamsa will rise as the 7th in Vrishabha Lagna.

In other Lagnas, Mesha and Vrischika will not rise as the 7th navamsa. If Lagna

falls in any sign, there must 5e some sign which occupies the house and some

navamsa must rise as the 7th. Out of the 7th house and the 7th navamsa, find out

which is stronger and ascribe the results to it. But in doing so, there will be a tinge

of the 7th house as navamsa, which is weaker. Suppose Kataka falls as the 7th and

is occupied by Kuja and Kataka navamsa rises with Guru in it. Here it will be seen,

that between the 7th house and the 7th navamsa, the navamsa is stronger, and the

rasi is weaker. The results for the 7th navamsa should be predicted in preference to

7th rasi. In all these cases great patience; laborious calculations, high diligence, and

excellent analysing power should be brought to bear on the subject, in order to

arrive at correct results. Haste and want of patient labour will bring the man and

this noble science to ruin and disgrace.

I shall now try and give some mixed results. If a weak evil planet occupies the 7th

house from Lagna, the woman will have no issues. If evil planets occupy the 7th

house, she becomes a widow. If evil and good planets occupy the 7th, she will

neglect the first husband and marry a second one. If Mesha, Vrischika, Makara or

Kumbha becomes Lagna combined by Chandra and Sukra, the girl becomes

adulterous along with her mother. If there are no planets in the 7th from Lagna or

Chandra, and the house is not powerful and has no beneficial conjunctions or

aspects, the husband becomes a mean and hateful fellow. If the 7th from Lagna or


Chandra is occupied by Sani or Budha, the husband will become impotent or

without sexual potency. If the 7th falls in a moveable sign, the husband will have

much travelling. By implications, if the 7th falls in a fixed sign, the husband will

remain at home; if the 7th falls in a double-bodied or Dwiswabhava Rasi, then the

husband will have some travelling and some rest. If the Sun is found in the 7th

unaspected by benefics, the girl will be rejected by the husband. If Mars is in the

7th with the aspect of evil planets, she will become a widow soon after marriage. If

Sani occupies the 7th with evil aspects, the woman will be unmarried. If Chandra

and Sukra are in the birth, the woman becomes mean, jealous and fond of

happiness. If Budha and Chandra occupy Lagna, she will be well skilled in music

and arts, will have good children, will be happy and prosperous. If Sukra and

Budha occupy Lagna, she will be agreeable, prosperous, well skilled in music and

fine arts. The highest pleasure for man in this world is to have an obedient,

modest, loving, virtuous, handsome, agreeable and sympathetic wife and children.

Good health is the most precious gift of Heaven for man as well as for woman.

Domestic happiness, peace of mind, prosperity dignity and fair name cannot be

conceived on a higher basis. Heavenly pleasure will be on earth with such family

members. Where the characteristics are quite the reverse, the man or the woman

need not seek another Hell.


Beneficial Aspects and Conjunctions

If beneficial planets, viz., Full Moon, well-associated Mercury, Jupiter and Venus

occupy the Lagna, she will have money, good clothes, ornaments, agreeable

temper and attractive personality, happiness and prosperity. If evil planets, the

Sun, weak Moon, badly associated Mercury, Mars, Rahu, Sani and Ketu occupy

the Lagna, she will have the opposite results, viz., disagreeable personality,

repulsive manners, poverty, short and unpleasant temper and misery. Full Moon

and well-associated Mercury are classed as benefics. But when the Moon is weak

like on a New Moon day, and Mercury with Rahu, Sani, Mars and Ketu, he is said

to be evil. Here great differences must be made in the results.

Suppose Kanya is Lagna with Budha and Sani and Meena is Lagna with them. The

results will be and must be different. In Meena, Budha is debilitated, and with

Sani, he will give bad results. In Kanya, he is exalted, and with Sani, he will give

better results. Suppose in Kanya they are joined by Guru and so also in Meena,

there will be difference in results. If Sukra joins them in Kanya or Meena, the

results will be quite different. In astrology, it is no joke to make correct

predictions, for, the


astrologer has to remember all such details, analyse them as best as he could,

balance the conflicting evidence, combine theory and practice, use common sense

and intelligence, study the environments of the parties, consider the local, the

political, the social and the religious conditions and then, after summarising all

these, draw reasonable conclusions and make predictions with care and caution.

If Lagna is occupied by Chandra, Budha and Sukra or by Budha, Guru and Sukra,

she will have excellent character, be happy, learned, intelligent, polite, attractive

and command the services of servants. If Chandra and Sukra are in Lagna, she will

be irritable, fond of happiness and have many gold ornaments. If Lagna has Budha

or Guru and Sukra, she will be skilful in arts, fond of happiness and attractive. If

Budha and Chandra are in Lagna, she will be happy and blessed with children. If

Guru occupies Lagna, she will be very wealthy and will have sons and

grandchildren. If Kanya or Mithuna rises as Lagna and Chandra and Sukra are

there, she will be fond of happiness, will have a tendency to quarrel with her

husband and will have free movements. The latter means, I suppose, she will be

free with other men. Quarrels are not happy signs of domestic felicity. If Budha,

Guru and Sukra are powerless, if Sani has middle strength and Ravi, Chandra and

Kuja are powerful and the Lagna falls in an odd sign, the girt will be masculine in

temperament and behaviour, will be free in her sexual intercourse, and will

become a reputed woman. When a woman is free in her sexual matters, I am afraid

she will be rightly entitled to become notorious rather than reputed.

Reputation always signifies right conduct and notoriety objectionable behaviour.

Good reputation can never be the property of women, free in sexual matters. It is

only a shameless woman who indulges in promiscuous intercourse. If Lagna falls in

an even sign, the powerful Guru, Budha or Sukra joins with Chandra in any sign,

she will have religious wisdom and philosophical knowledge, insight into many

sciences and will become famous. if Lagna or Chandra is betwixt powerful evil

planets, she will have all her wants supplied by her parents and she will cause

extinction of her father-in-law’s house. If two planets are in the 6th and there is

one malefic and one benefic in Lagna, the girl will become a Vishakanya. If the

lunar day is 7th failing on Tuesday and Satabhisha ruling, or if the lunar day is 12th

falling on

Sunday, ruled by Krittika, the girl becomes a Vishakanya. If Dwadasi or 12th lunar

day, Satabhisha and Sunday join together or if Saptami or 7th lunar day, Visakha

and Tuesday combine, the girl becomes a Vishakanya. If Lagna and Chandra fall

in moveable signs, aspected by feminine planets and evil planets occupy kendras,

the girl will have two husbands.

If Sani and Chandra occupy a moveable sign aspected by Sukra, her husband will

be fond of other women, fickle-minded and born of adultery. This means that his

mother is immoral and he is not the son of her reputed or registered father. If Sani

occupies an even sign and the 7th is occupied or aspected by a benefic, her


husband will be respected by the governing bodies and will be agreeable and

happy. If Chandra and Sukra occupy the 7th, the husband will be old.

If the 7th is occupied by evil planets, she will become a widow early in life. If Ravi

occupies the 7th aspected by an unfriendly planet, she will be neglected by her

husband. If Kuja occupies the 7th and has the aspect of an unfriendly planet, she

will become a widow in early life. If Sani occupies the 7th with unfriendly aspect,

she becomes a young widow and will live as a widow till old age. If the 7th is

occupied by good and evil planets, she will become adulterous. If the 7th is an evil

sign and is occupied by Sani and Kuja, she becomes a widow, very early in life. If

Kuja with an evil planet joins the 12th or the 8th and Lagna is occupied by Rahu,

she will become a widow and immoral. If Lagna is occupied by Ravi or Kuja, she

becomes poor. If Ravi, Kuja and Rahu occupy Lagna, she becomes a widow and

immoral. If these combine with Sukra, she will be fond of her husband. There are

extraordinary women who although they become widows at a very early age,

preserve their chastity and command the highest respect from alt classes of people.

They are domestic gems.

If there is an evil planet in the 8th from Lagna and when the subperiod of the lord

of the navamsa occupied by that planet occurs after the marriage, her widowhood

should be predicted. If the 2nd is occupied by benefics and the 8th by malefics, she

will die before her husband. Such a death is coveted by all good women and that

state or marital life goes under the name Sumangali. If evil planets occupy the 8th,

the woman becomes a widow. If there is a malefic in the 8th and a benefic occupies

Kumbha, she dies before her husband. If Lagna has evil and good planets and the

second has benefics, her death occurs before her husband. If Lagna falls in Simha,

Vrishabha or Vrischika, she will have few issues. If malefics occupy the 7th and the

9th houses, she will become a Sanyasin or one who renounces the world. If Kanya,

Vrischika, Vrishabha or Simha joins Chandra or if the 6th is occupied by benefics

or has their aspects, she will have few children. If Lagna is joined by Sani and Kuja

or by Chandra and Sukra, and the 5th is aspected or occupied by malefics, she

becomes barren.

If birth falls in Mesha, Vrischika, Makara or Kumbha and is aspected by evil

planets, she becomes barren, If Ravi and Sani occupy the 8th or if any one of them

occupies his own house other than Lagna, the woman becomes barren. If Guru and

Sukra are similarly situated, she will have dead children. If Kuja joins with such

Sukra. and Guru, she will have many abortions. If Kuja occupies the 7th and has

the aspect of Sani, she will have abortions. If Sani occupies the 7th possessing the

aspect of Kuja, the issues will be sickly. If Rahu and Ravi occupy the 7th, she will

have dead children. If Chandra and Budha are in the 7th, she will have female

children. If Guru and Sukra occupy the 5th, she will have many sons and

daughters, prosperous, with good qualities, faithful and loving to husband and will

do many charitable deeds. These results may be predicted for females, at the time

of birth, at the time of marriage, at time when marriages are settled, at the time of


query or questions and at the time of puberty. These results of female horoscopy

have been selected from the Vriddha Yavana and other important works on

female horoscopy. Who are Yavanas and where did they come from? What works

have they written and when did they flourish? Vriddha Yavanas are the older

ones. Yavanas are later emigration (see my History of Vijayanagar).


Characteristics of the 12 Rasis

I will now give the description and characteristics of girls born in the 12 different

rasis and these are to be taken with considerable modifications. For example, if a

girl is born in Mesha without any planet or with Ravi, Chandra, Kuja, Budha,

Guru, Sukra, Sani, Rahu or Ketu in all these ten cases the results will be

necessarily different. This should be particularly borne in mind. But there will also

be the general influences of the Rasi itself which will be strongly or weakly marked

according to the strength or weakness of the Rasi itself, its lord and the planets

who are there and who aspect it. Kuja in Mesha will be its lord. Ravi in Mesha will

have exaltation, Chandra will be in a friendly house. Budha will be emerging from

debilitation and in an unfriendly sign. Guru will be in a friendly sign. Sukra will be

in an enemy’s use. Sani will be debilitated. Rahu will be powerful. Ketu will be

weak. Therefore, the results of a girl born in Mesha vary according to the strength

and weakness of these planets and rasis. Then again we have double, triple,

quadruple, multiple, sextile and separate combinations, each of which has its own

strength and weakness. Therefore, when we give the results for Mesha, Vrishabha

and so forth, the astrologer must be very careful in making his predictions.

1. A girl, who is born in Mesha, will be truthful, cruel, phlegmatic, quarrelsome

and fond of relations.

2. A woman, born in Vrishabha, will be of cultivation, agreeable, polite manners,

obey her husband, skilled in arts and fond of relations.

3. One, who is born in Mithuna, will use harsh language, passionate, bad character,

cruel temper, windy and phlegmatic complaints and a spendthrift.

4. One, born in Kataka, will have many issues, handsome, wealthy, righteous,

fondness for relations, pious, polite, attractive and happy.

5. One, who is born. in Simha; will have anger, phlegmatic, fond of quarrels and



6. One, who is born in Kanya, will have happiness, politeness, agreeable temper,

faithful servants, fond of charitable deeds, virtuous, and skilful in arts.

7. One, who is born in Thula, steadiness, laziness, few friends, proud, heart-burn,

avaricious and sinful;

8. One, born in Vrischika, will be handsome delightful, meritorious, virtuous, good

Character and truthful.

9. One, born in Dhanus, good mind, masculine deeds, amenable to kindness, cruel,

thinking ill of others and unkind.

10. One, born in Makara will be prosperous, truthful, fond of visiting holy places,

without enemies , engaged in important work, good reputation, character and

many children.

11. One, who is born in Kumbha, powerful from birth, bloody disease, fond of

religious men, pure-minded, expensive, fond of merit and grateful.

12. One, born in Meena, will have children and grand children, fond of husband,

respected by relations and friends, beautiful eyes and hairs, fond of worship,

kindness and respect to elders.

In judging of these characteristics, the reader has to be careful. When the sign is

powerful, well occupied, beneficially aspected and when its lord has good

conjunctions and aspects then the characteristics sketched above will appear in

full. But when the sign is weak and has evil conjunctions and aspects, its lord is not

powerful, then the results can only have general traces and not in full. One or two

examples will suffice to explain what I mean.

Take Kataka. If it is occupied by Kuja, if its lord Moon is both New Moon and

debilitated in Vrischika, then there will be faint traces of the characteristics

represented by Kataka. But if Guru is there and Chandra is full and exalted, then

all the characteristics given for Cancer will be prominently visible. The task of an

astrologer, if he wants to be honest and faithful to this science, is not only taxing

but also laborious. Sciences, whatever they may be, are not for lazy fools or

ignorant brains. Devotion, intelligence, patience and industry are wanted.

Results to the occupation of Chandra in the different Rasis:

1. When Chandra is in Mesha – fond of work, much skill, handsome person, leader,

fond of husband and devoted to elders and Gurus.

2. Chandra in Vrishabha – good temper, tact, education, fond of fine arts, visiting

holy places, blessed with children and grandchildren, acquisition of wealth and


devotion to husband.

3. Chandra in Mithuna – well developed, handsome body, good character, profits

from various engagements, good intelligence, helpful of others, charming eyes.

4. Chandra in Kataka – sickly, respected among relations, dignified, conquest over

enemies, devotion to Gods and priests.

5. Chandra in Simha – leader among her class, good temper, fond of flesh, blessed

with ornaments and clothes, engaged in large speculations, good marital life and

handsome features.

6. Chandra in Kanya – many cattle, virtue, great wealth, over enemies, patience

and righteous conduct.

7. Chandra in Thula – fond of religious rites, sympathetic and loving, virtuous, good

children, high social position and little sexual passion.

8. Chandra in Vrischika – concealing sins, steady, skilful work, agreeable. #o elders,

great wealth and unsympathetic.

9. Chandra in Dhanus – fond of religious rights, love for charities, sympathy,

musical taste, love for fellow creatures, agreeable, attainment in desires, female

issues and polite manners.

10. Chandra in Makara – terrible teeth, solar worship, agreeable, varied learning,

truthful, handsome body, conquest over passions and enemies, and righteous.

11. Chandra in Kumbha – rounded body, attractive face, charitable, issues, wealth,

good actions, reputation and self-respect.

12. Chandra in Meena – many male issues, charitable, good character, controlling

passions, skilful in arts, great modesty, careful about reputation and agreeable.

When Chandra is in any particular sign, not aspected or conjoined by good or evil

planets and the lord of the sign is powerful as has already been stated, then the

characteristics detailed for that sign will be prominently seen. But when

Conjunctions and aspects present are conflicting then there will be traces of these

results. We say a girl is handsome. In beauty there are any number of varieties and

the judgements on beauty also vary according to the tastes of nations, manners,

customs, social functions and aesthetic development. Habit also has a great deal to

do with our tastes and judgements. The darkest Negro, the Hotentat, the

American, the Indian, the aboriginals of India, the European and the Asiatic

nations all have their own ideas of beauty.


It will be seen that the thirty degrees of any sign will not exercise the same

influences and it stands to ordinary common sense to think so. A man walks thirty

miles. The road, the scenery, the nature of the soils, the varied phenomena on the

way, the climatic conditions, the presence or absence of watery surfaces, hills,

valleys, dales, mountains, vegetation, animals, birds, beasts, reptiles, the human

habitations, their varied features, his own physical and mental changes, all these

and many more necessarily change his mind, and make him miserable or

pleasurable, according to these various influences. Similarly when a planet enters

Mesha he will be affected in the 30 degrees with various sources of beneficial and

malefic influences. Say the Sun enters Mesha in the 1st degree. We will explain the

various influences in our colloquial language. First, he enters a friendly house;

second, he enters his sign of exaltation; third, he enters his own Hora; fourth, he

enters Kuja

Drekkana; fifth, he enters Kuja Navamsa; sixth, he enters Kuja Dwadasamsa; and

seventh, he enters Kuja Thrimsamsa, we shall not go into further minor

subdivisions. Here we have to take that Ravi is alone there, unaspected and

uncombined and within respectable distances from other planets. Here again he

travels in two and quarter stars in each sign which have their own peculiar

influences. Aswini extends over 13 1/3 degrees and it does not exercise the same

influence all through those degrees. The tenth degree or the end of the 3rd quarter

is his deep exaltation where he is said to give the highest beneficial influence.

Till the 10th degree he is in the ascent and reaches the highest point in the 10th

degree. From the 11th degree he is said to be in the descent, and gradually loses his

powers. When he reaches the 30th degree he loses his power of exaltation and

when he enters the 1st degree of Vrishabha, he comes to an unfriendly territory.

From the 13 1/3 degree to the 26 2/3 degree of Mesha, he will be in Bharani which

is quite different in nature, in its results from those of Aswini. Bharani has Yama

as its Deity and has its influence. From the 262/3 degree till he passes the 30th

degree or the end of the first quarter of Krittika he travels in a star governed by

Agni. Bharani is governed by Yama or the dread judge who punishes all wicked

people after their death. These are not easy lessons which could be learnt by casual

glances. They require deep, intelligent and patient study.

Bhava Phala or the Significations of the Planets in the Twelve Houses


Here, the results of the various planets occupying the different Bhavas are

sketched out and the astrologer will see how each house and its significations are

affected and modified. The balancing of evidence and pronouncing of correct

judgement are not such great difficulties to a judge as the balancing of the results

of the occupations of the planets in the different houses and making correct

predictions for an astrologer. Take Mesha. First there are the influences of the

sign. Then we have the Hora, Drekkana, Navamsa, Dwadasamsa, Thrimsamsa, the

stellar, and the planetary influences. All these and the influences of combinations,

aspects, debilitations, exaltations, retrogression, acceleration, friendly and

unfriendly houses, Moolathrikonas and other particulars will have to be taken into

consideration. Any brain, however intelligent it may be, reels back at the

stupendous labour which lies before it in astrological calculations. It is surprising

how educated people, themselves discontented with their heavy incomes, can

make up their minds to overlook the dignity of the herculean labour and offer to

the really learned astrologers small sums often even less than humble wages of a

street cooly. Such, however, is the logic of the learned and they have the audacity

to find fault with the astrologers for false predictions. This is something like jeering

at an Engineer for not building a tank bund properly, when he is paid ten rupees

for a work, which really costs a thousand. What would be his reply readers can

In all these cases, the planet alone should not be consulted for results. Even here,

there are great differences. If Mesha is Lagna and Ravi is there and if Thula is

Lagna and Ravi occupies it there will be great difference in results. In one he is

exalted and in the other he has debilitation. Similarly, if Chandra occupies

Vrishabha as Lagna and Vrischika as Lagna, the results will be different. The

digestive organs of a healthy man and his organs, when he is seriously sick, will

produce different results.

been explained from the constellations, lunar influences, sign peculiarities and

influences of planets in the different Bhavas. These are specially applicable to

females. In astrology as well as in other sciences right judgement is a great factor

and weighing of evidence is important. Great patience and labour are wanted.

Chandra enters Mesha twelve times a year. Each month has its own peculiar

influence, and the various angles he forms both with reference to himself and also

for other planets are factors which have to be taken into consideration in

delineating the character of women. So also for other planets.



Rajayogas or Auspicious Combinations

1. If Guru is in Lagna, if Chandra is in 7th or in his own vargas, and Sukra is in

10th, the woman will become the wife of a king or a ruler, even if she is born in a

poor family and inferior caste. Here it means that although a girl may be born in

humble circumstances and belong to a lower caste than that of the ruler, she will

become his wife. Beauty is no doubt a powerful weapon for women to conquer

men, but sometimes love is blind, and a woman of ordinary complexion and beauty

will be courted by a ruler, under what we may call lucky and other subtle

influences. A fair woman sometimes courts and enjoys a dark and repulsive man

and a fair man falls in desperate love with a dirty and ugly looking wench. Why

and wherefore nobody can satisfactorily explain. Lovers do not see the petty follies

they commit.

2. If Guru has all the good sources of Shadvargas and occupies 3, 4. 5, 7, 8, 9, or 10

and has the powerful aspect of Chandra, the woman will be blessed with plenty of

wealth and will become the wife of a Raja. Luxuries dependent on the royal

position will be with her. Morality has been specially mentioned when they have

any. Royal females have greater temptations to fall into immoral channels.

3. If benefics occupy the kendras or if they are in Lagna and if the 7th falls in a

Nara Rasi or signs like Mithuna, Kanya, Thula, the first half of Dhanus or

Kumbha, occupied by evil planets the girl will have great wealth, will have patient

and agreeable temper, and the conquered enemies will serve upon her as servants.

This means she will have great political power.

4. If the 11th is occupied by Chandra and the 7th is occupied by Sukra and Budha

and possesses the aspect of Guru, she will become the bride of a ruler and will

have all. the paraphernalia of royalty surrounding her.

5. If Kanya becomes Lagna with Budha in it, and Guru is found located in the 11th,

i.e., Kataka, in exaltation, she will become a queen and will command great respect

and power. Here two planets, Budha and Guru, are in exaltation and they produce


6. If Sukra occupies Lagna, Budha is in the 3rd and the powerful Guru possessed

of Shadvarga strength is located in the 4th, the girl will marry a king and will have

all royal enjoyments.

7. If one of the Sirshodaya Rasis becomes the 7th with the Full-Moon there, and if

there are no evil planets in the four kendras the girl will become the wife of a ruler,

will have many elephants, horses and conveyances, will be a loving wife to her

husband and will be able to conquer all her enemies.

8. If at the time of birth there are three planets who have good Shadvargas, she will


become the wife of a Raja. If four planets are so well situated with good

Shadvargas, she will become the wife of a great emperor. If five planets have

completely auspicious Shadvargas, she will become the wife of a very great en

emperor who has command over the three worlds and will travel in Vimanas.

The Sirshodaya Rasis mentioned in No. 7 are Mithuna, Simha, Kanya, Thula,

Vrischika and Kumbha. Sovereignty over three worlds-Swarga, Martya and Patalahas

been casually mentioned in the Puranas, but from the Pandavas downwards we

have no historical evidence to show that any king has had jurisdiction over the

three worlds. Arjuna went to Swarga and fought there. Vikramaditya went into

Indraloka and got his valuable Throne with 35 steps guarded by 32 celestial

Nymphs to whom are ascribed 32 beautiful, interesting and highly romantic stories,

which form the theme of a separate book, called Dwathrimsat Sala Bhanjika


Vimana is derived from the Sanskrit Vi excessive or high and Mana measure of

speed and refers to Aeroplanes and all those machines which could travel in the

aerial regions (see Verse 48,1st Kanda, Amara). Vyoni means aerial regions and

that which can fly there is a Vimana. Those cars which contain Devatas are

Vimanas. Vina Pakshina Manamuhamanam Gamanay Asyatiha, or that which

when flying resembles a winged bird. Swarga is inhabited by Devatas, headed by

Indra. Martya is inhabited by human beings who are subjected to Mri – to die or

death. Patala is inhabited by the Nagas or serpent like beings headed by Adisesha.

Royal power is no doubt very covetable and desirable. When people have got

steady heads and pure minds, they can do a great deal of good. But when they

have weak or impulsive temperaments they will plunge themselves into the vortex

of sexual and sensual pleasures, and become physically as well as morally ruined.

9. If Kumbha becomes Lagna with Poorna Chandra in the fourth or Vrishabha,

aspected by Guru, she will become the principal queen of a ruler, will have many

children and will have conquest over her enemies. Generally rulers are not very

scrupulous about the moral atmosphere. They are often wicked and mischievous.

10. If Budha joins Kanya or Mithuna and aspected by Guru with auspicious

Shadvargas and the 4th has the aspect of Sukra, the girl will marry a Maharaja. The

Shadvargas are:

1. Lagna or Birth or Ascendant.

2. Hora or half of a Rasi or sign.

3. Drekkana or one-third of a sign.

4. Navamsa or one-ninth division of a Rasi.

5. Dwadasamsa or one-twelfth of a zodiacal sign.

6. Thrimsamsa or one-thirtieth division of a sign.

This corresponds to one degree in the zodiacal circle.


These six divisions constitute Shadvargas and when all are good, the planet is

powerful. Other works mention Shodasavargas or 16 divisions and they are:

1. Lagna 09. Panchadasamsa

2. Hora 10. Shodasamsa

3. Drekkana 11. Thrimsamsa.

4. Panchamsa 12. Ekadasamsa

5. Saptamsa 13. Shashtamsa

6. Navamsa 14. Ashtamsa

7. Dwadasamsa 15. Chaturthamsa

8. Trayodasamsa. 16. Shashtiamsa

(See my notes in the Translation of Sarvarthachintamani, 5 to 19. See also A

Manual of Hindu Astrology by B. V. Raman).

The arrangement of these Amsas differs considerably and I refer my readers to

other standard works for this information.

11. If Kuja occupies 3 or 6 and Sani with auspicious Shadvargas joins 11 and Guru

aspects Lagna which should fall in a fixed sign, the woman will become a queen.

12. If Mithuna becomes Lagna with Full-Moon; Sun in the 11th Mesha in

exaltation, and Mercury in. Meena in the 10th, the woman becomes a highly

respected queen, very virtuous and faithful to husband. There are any number of

women in the line of queens and aristocrats. Many of them are shielded and

protected by their political and financial power. As regards their moral character

the less we say about it, the better it would be for them. The street prostitutes

often compare with some them favourably and appear much better. Such is the

constitution of human society. These Rajayogas give power, money and luxuries

afforde by them. But moral and spiritual considerations are different and these

have generally fewer chances of access to the royal palaces than the vices, which

not only have better access, but are fondled with great care and loved by the

aristocrats. Nemesis deals out its iron hand, catches them in its grip and gives them

plenty of diseases and a wonderful variety of sorrows. Palaces are nobly built,

richly furnished and present very inviting appearances to outlookers, but when one

enters into their precincts, the rotten smell of diseases, social scandals, immoral

impulses and horrid forms of vicious and unrighteous deeds hail the outsider and

make him reflect that his humble home is far better than the guilded

compartments, enclosing rotten human beings. In the above Rajayogas the

virtuous conduct of the women is specially mentioned so that the holy may be

distinguished from the unholy, and the healthy from the rotten.

13. If the Sun, with all the auspicious Shadvargas, occupies the 3rd and Saturn is

placed in the 6th, woman becomes the wife of a ruler, will be fond of righteous

conduct and will be loving her husband and beloved by him.

14. If the Sun occupies Mesha his sign of exaltation with all the auspicious

Shadvargas, aspected or conjoined by benefics and the birth falls in a fixed sign ,


the girl will become a queen and will command many elephants, horses and


15. If Lagna falls in Kanya with Budha combined there, Guru in the 11 th, Sukra in

the 2nd and Poorna Chandra in the 10th, she will be an empress. She will be

charitable, generous, blessed with sympathetic speech, virtuous and helpful to the

poor and the distressed. She will be a grand woman in every way. She will

command the respect of all and will have great reputation as a benevolent and

religious lady.


Other Kinds of Yogas

1. If the lord of the 7th joins Lagna with its lord and is aspected by Sukra.

2. If the lord of 7th occupies the 7th and joins the lord of Lagna and is aspected by

Guru and Chandra.

3. If the lord of 7th joins exaltation, and the lord of Lagna occupies Lagna.

4. If the lord of Lagna occupies deep exaltation and if the lord of 7th aspects 7th

and benefics occupy Kendras.

5. If the lord of 7th joins exaltation, in his own houses, Moolatrikonas and

auspicious Shadvargas.

In all these cases a combination arises called Saubhagya Yoga or a favourable,

lucky and long marital happy state. Saubhagya and Nirbhagya are opposite terms

used in the Sanskrit literature. The first means happy, fortunate and favourable

conditions in life, good married career, children and delightful existence.

Nirbhagya means, unlucky, poor, marriage miseries, unhealthy issues and

sorrowful surroundings. These are peculiar to womankind.

12.0 Sahacharya Yogas

1. If the lord of 7th occupies 6th or if the lords of 6th and 7th are combined in 12 or

if they are in one Navamsa or in one constellation.

2. If the lord of 7th joins Lagna, if the lord of 6th combines in 12 or 7, and have

mutual aspects, or, are combined in one Navamsa.

3. If the lord of 7th is Chandra and joins the last Navamsa and is aspected by the

lord of the 6th.

4. If the lord of 7th combines in 1, 4, 7, 10 or Kendras, and is found in the Navamsa

of the lord of 6th with its lord, and has the aspects of the lord of the 12th.

In all these four combinations, a special yoga called the Sahacharya arises and the

results are – the woman will be virtuous, modest,


righteous in conduct, beloved by all people and commanding respect even from

Gods. A modest and virtuous woman is a precious gem and one who marries such

a woman or who is born to such a woman may reap the highest blessings. No gem

can adorn a man or woman, more than their love, morality and chastity. The

present combinations of planets are driving out such human beings, year after year

into the background.

Material civilisation accounts much for this state. Earn money by any means is the


12.1 Vydhavyayoga or Widowhood

For a respectable, loving, chaste and modest woman, nothing can be more dreadful

than the loss of her lawful lord, and this is specially held in great fear among the

higher caste Hindu women. For an adulterous, unsympathetic, immoral and

quarrelsome girl, nothing can give her greater pleasure than the death of her

husband at an early age. This event gives her greater liberty and licence for her

immoral behaviour and independent conduct and she will be only too glad to do

what she likes. Widowhood, therefore, is an event, which is looked at from various

mentalities. I give here the most formidable combinations for the widowhood. We

know there are some angelic and modest women who love their husbands more

than a Deity and we also know there are some who treat their husbands with the

greatest contempt. There are some dirty women, who conspire with their lovers,

and poison and kill their husbands. There are some godly women, who cannot

brook the idea of widowhood, and even kill themselves before their husbands.

Human Psychology is a great puzzle.

1. If the lords of 7 and 8 join and occupy the 8th, aspected by evil planets, there will

be widow hood.

2. If Rahu joins 7th, if the lord of 7th has con junction with Ravi and has the aspect

of the lord of the 8th, widowhood will befall.

3. If the lord of 7 combines with Sani, is aspected by Kuja, Chandra and Rahu are

in the 8th, there will be widowhood.

4. If Kuja is in 8th, in combination with the lord of 8th, and Lagna falls in an evil

Navamsa, widowhood Will befall on her.

5. If Rahu combines with Sani and Kuja and joins 7th or 8th house, early

widowhood is indicated.

6. If the lords of 7 and 8 join together and fall in the 12th, and the 7th has evil

aspect there will be widowhood very early in life.

7. If the lord of 7th is unfavourable and Kuja and Sani are in the 7th or 8th, she

becomes a widow very early in life.

In all such cases beneficial aspects relieve the rigours while malefics enhance the



8. If the 7th is betwixt two or more evil planets, as also its lord, without beneficial

aspects or conjunctions, widowhood is threatened.

9. If the lord of the Navamsa, bhava is in, or its lord is debilitated, eclipsed, in

combustion or between evil planets and unfavourable Shadvargas, she will become

a widow.

10. If a planet occupies a debilitated sign and it happens to be a cruel one, and if its

lord is in an inauspicious position without beneficial aspects or conjunctions, the

girl becomes a widow.

There are a variety of wonderful types of widows and a little explanation here will

not fail to be interesting to our masculine and feminine readers. Strijataka or

Female Horoscopy is an absorbingly interesting subject. Humanity cannot have

existence and continuance, if males and females, as at present created, do not mix

and reproduce their species. The productivity of mankind presents strange

contrasts. Peace and prosperity lead to luxury and sexual excesses. The latter

produce enervation. Enervation produces impotency and weak children. To

remove these undesirables, famines, plagues, pestilences, wars and other forms of

destructive agencies are let loose by Nature. Some marry for love, others for

money, yet others for titles and estates.

From a girl who becomes a widow on the day of marriage or soon after that

function to a woman, who lives a Sumangali life, all through her long life and

becomes a widow for a few minutes or a few hours, the gulf is very wide and the

states of life to which they will be subjected will be curious, romantic, interesting

and instructive. A poor girl marries a poor man and he dies and she lives to a long

term of widowhood. A girl marries on ordinary man, and lives with him for some

years agreeably, then she becomes a widow and may have to live on reduced

circumstances. A wicked girl marries an old but rich man and becomes a widow

after the marriage. She leads quite a comfortable and jolly life with a large estate

for her pleasurable expenses. A woman voluntarily becomes a widow by

despatching her legal lord to an early grave. Some do not like scandals.

Others take delight only in the midst of scandals. Some remain maidens, though

they are greatly dangerous to society. The proverb, old maids are most dangerous,

is well founded on facts. Sexual passions are imperious sensations and they seek

satisfaction under the most honourable as well as under the most dishonourable

conditions. Some lay down their lives for the sake of chastity and honour, while

others cut the throats of others for the sake of their bestial sexual gratifications.

The History of Prostitution written by the American Company of medical men,

from the earliest times, is a curious narration of how men and women have

behaved and what disgraceful excesses they have committed in the name of love

and sexual passions. Strict moral discipline and good early surroundings from the

earliest times of children will have some good effect on their subsequent conduct.

Platonic love is a mental hallucination that has no practical existence with many.



Puberty and Menses

For a male, the Janma Lagna is sufficient for all purposes and there is no particular

time at which any event like puberty or menses in a woman, can happen to him.

Among the generality of womankind, they are considered fit for sexual enjoyments

only after they attain puberty. There are, of course, some wicked and crooked

girls, who resort to sexual indulgences even before they have menses, but these

cases arise more from morbid sexuality, than the real desires of physical

promptings. These are trained in the dens of iniquity, decoyed into evil habits by

dirty maids or old prostitutes and some of them are also spoiled early in life by the

constant evil company of unprincipled boys even before they attain the proper age

of majority.

For a woman, have to take into consideration three important Lagnas; viz., Janma

Lagna or the ascendant at birth, the Lagna for the first appearance of the menses

in her and Lagna or the sign in which she had the first sexual contact with the man,

be he her husband or lover or raper. All the astrological writers in Sanskrit have

attached the greatest importance to the appearance of the first Menses in a girl, so

much so that not only have they explained the influences of the constellations,

signs, planets, lunar and solar days, special occasions and aspearances of

phenomena, eclipses and omens, but they have also elaborately explained about

the direction the place, the cloth, the time, the number of drops of menstrual fluid

which has come out, and also about weekdays, Yogas, Karanas and other

peculiarities connected with the appearance of the first Menses.

One would be surprised to see such a vast elaborate literature about a natural

event like the menses in a girl, if they had not by their Divya Drishti or Divine

Vision seen the subtle influences of all these on the future destinies of herself, her

husband, her children and all that pertains to her career and prospects in life. This

one point should effectually seal the mouths of all those ill-informed and

superficially read critics that the noble science of Astrology had never been

borrowed from any foreign nation, that all these ideas explained here are

completely indigenous and that 4 lacs of Sutras sprang up from the comprehensive

brains of the Maharshis and that India, as a whole, had never the misfortune to

borrow her scientific ideas and researches from the surrounding nations who have

always been in a hopeless condition of intellectual poverty; but who were ever

greedy to borrow from, but never had the means to lend to the Indian scholars.

Have they any references to such events in their astrological publications? Have

they suggested any remedies for averting, softening or modifying the planetary

influences indicating the evil results from the past births? Can their hillocks be

compared to the grand Himalayan ranges? Can any other river in the world claim


rivalry with the purities of the Ganges floods? So many details and with surprising

minuteness about the appearance of the first Menses have been given. That I

would earnestly request the readers to pay particular attention to them and apply

them all practically to the time given for the menses, so that they may be able to

draw proper inferences and make correct future predictions about the girl and all

her prospects in life. I challenge, if any astrological publications in England,

Continental countries or America have given any references to these details or

even to this subject of the appearance of the first. menses. If only we are willing to

collect all the stanzas bearing on this particular subject of menses, they will at least

come up to 13,000 verses. The dabbling and shallow brained critics cannot commit

a more grotesque blunder than to say that the great grandfather of a child is the

offspring of that infant. Sane men take a hearty laugh over these idiosyncrasies and

let these egotists to dance in their own hallucinations. I shall now come to the

subject proper. Puberty or Menses is a physical change in the constitution of a girl,

where a reddish fluid called shonitha is suddenly expelled from the sexual organ,

and changing the whole of her future life according as it appears on an auspicious

or inauspicious time. The details are very interesting and instructive and throw a

flood of light on the subtle influences, which mark that event and which have such

a direct influence on the future destiny of the girl.

Puberty in Sanskrit is called Ruthu or phenomenon which will have regular

monthly appearances. When Chandra is not in upachayas, viz., 3, 6, 10 and 11 and

when the Lagna is powerfully aspected by Kuja the appearance of first Menses

should be predicted. Such combinations may occur when the girl is young, when is

old, when she suffers from various diseases which cause irregular menses or stop

them altogether. But there are special combinations with which menses app ear

and also disappear. I shall not expand on this subject, any further here. It will be

explained in its proper place (see my notes on Brihat Jataka).

13.1 Effects of Tithies or Lunar Days

If the first Menses occurs on.

1. Padyami – Issueless.

2. Dviteeya – Little happiness.

3. Thriteeya – All wealth and prosperity.

4. Chaturthi – Sinful and wicked.

5. Panchami – Sons and daughters, happiness and , good enjoyment.

6. Shashti – Unpleasant words and cruel mind.

7. Saptami – Riches, cattle, ornaments, happiness.

8. Ashtami – Bold and reckless.

9. Navami – Troubled by sorrows and anxieties.

10. Dasami – Happy and a leader.

11. Ekadasi – Pure and clean.

12. Dwadasi – Fond of spreading scandals about others.

13. Trayodasi – Joyful and happy.

14. Chaturdasi – Fond of sinful acts.


15. Poornima – Well-developed and strong body.

30. Amavasya – Poor enjoyment, little comforts.

13.2 Inauspicious times for the appearance of the First Menses

1. Amavasya or the New-Moon day.

2. Rikta Tithies.

3. The 1st, 6th, 8th and 12th lunar days in both halves of the lunar months.

4. The first half of the Parigha yoga.

5. Vyathipatha and Vyadhriti.

6. The two twilights.

All these considered to be unfavourable for the appearance of the first Menses in a


13.3 Results of Weekdays

Sunday – She will suffer from many diseases.

Monday – Virtuous and good.

Tuesday – Suffering from sorrows.

Wednesday – Good married life and enjoyment.

Thursday – Virtuous and polite.

13.4 Auspicious Constellations

Hasta, Chitta, Swati, Visakha, Anooradha, Uttara , Uttarashadha, Uttarabhadra,

Sravana, Moola, Revati, Dhanishta, Satabhisha, Aswini, Pushyami, Rohini and

Mrigasira. These 17 stars are considered good for the appearance of the first


13.5 Evil Constellations

Pubba, Poorvashadha, Poorvabhadra, Bharani, Aslesha. If the first Menses

appears in these stars the girl should not chew betel leaves, should have no oil

baths, wear no flowers, use no yellow or red powders, Haridra and Kunkuma, and

should not see the face of the husband for the special periods mentioned for each

of those stars.

Proper remedies ordained by Sastras to avert these evil influences should at once

be adopted in interest of the girl’s future.

If she attains age in Aridra and Makha she becomes sorrowful. She becomes

adulterous, it she attains puberty in Punarvasu and Jyeshta. If the girl attains

puberty in Bharani, 10 months; if in Krittika, Aslesha and Jyeshta, 4 months; if in

Pubba, Poorvashadha, Poorvabhadra, 8 months; if in Aridra, 6 months; if in

Makha, 12 months; and if in Punarvasu, 5 months should be allowed to pass before


nuptials could be celebrated and she must not see during these months the face of

her husband and should avoid using leaves, flowers and other luxuries.

13.5 Remarks for Serious Reflection

The safety of human society entirely depends upon the sexual purity, the times of

enjoyment, and the health of the parties concerned. Among many of the animals,

there are instinctive impulses in masculine and feminine creatures which restrict

the sexual enjoyments and they preserve good health, because they have a gift of

nature, the great and unerring instinct which guides the animals in all these

operations. Nature is not partial to them. As a compensative gift to mankind,

nature has been graciously pleased to implant in man a wonderful power, the great

intelligence and for its protection, reasoning powers and practical knowledge.

Great as man is, with his intellectual powers and lofty comprehension, he often

degrades and debases himself, lower than the lowest of brutes. The colossal and

appallin venereal complaints prevailing in the most enlightened and civilised

centres are unmistakable monuments, showing the amount of moral filth which

surrounds the lofty intellects of human beings and drags them to the level of brutes

and sometimes even to lower levels than brutes in their social and sexual

transactions. Their horrible sexual ideas can have no comparison or parallels in the

animal world, whom man has the barefaced audacity to call as senseless beasts.

There is no question that the animals are far below the mark of intelligence, which

humanity possesses to its credit when properly directed.

But abuse of intelligence is his motto and excessive and untimely sexual

indulgences are his beneful practices. Astrology shows his weakness in these

matters and warns him to be careful in his sexual fransactions. In the flush of

passions he forgets his intelligence and reason, rushes on the mad career of sexual

excesses, falls into the folds of hopeless diseases, racks his brain to discover and

invent remedies to remove these complaints, suffers all excruciating pains from his

own body, grows degenerate in health and mind, produces unhealthy and syphilic

issues and corrupts society in so many ways that an enumeration of all the evil

effects of these sexual irregularities is not possible in such short treatises. None of

the other departments of knowledge can help humanity in the selection of

marriage couples, how the couple should. cohabit, and when and what should be

their future conduct in the way of these sexual matters on which depend the whole

prosperity of the nation, the strength of the armies, the vitality of all industries,

and the progress and health of the future generations.

A girl attains her age. The husband or some other man enjoys her sexually. There

will be discharges of electrical, ethereal and other subtle forces, and when they are


bad and unfavourable, the result will be death, danger, sorrows or diseases. Go to

an electric generating and distributing station. Suppose the off officers concerned

had not put the warning notices on different knobs or other machinery, which are

dangerous and a touch of which will kill a person at once, or send him to nervous

prostration. The man goes in utter ignorance of the dangerous effects of the

electric power and touches any one of these dangerous instruments. What would

be the result? He may die straight, or may be afflicted with some nervous

destruction which would incapacitate him for future work and enjoyment of

normal health. Will he not be ruined by his rash act, touching a knob although

done in the most innocent mood? The nut may have a very fine external


Man is a bundle of Electrical energy and other various subtle agencies. Some of

them are very deadly in their effects, so much so that as a breath of some

poisonous gases will kill a human being instantly so also will these unfavourable

electric and ethereal currents cause destruction to the parties concerned. I will give

an illustration which proved quite correct. A rich gentleman in Madras wanted me

to see the marital agreement of his son with the daughter of his wife’s brother. The

female horoscope stood thus. The girl was 12 years and the boy about 20 years in

the B.A. class possessing a fine specimen of developed athletic body. I warned

both the parents not to have the marriage. They neglected my advice and through

the influence of the boy’s mother, the betrothal was celebrated. Then came the

nuptial day and it passed off well. From that night,

2 – Kuja, Ketu

3 – Sani

7 – sukra, Ravi, Budha

8 – Lagna, Rahu

9 – Chandra

10 – Guru

the boy went on losing blood and in a month he was on his death-bed. He

expressed his great anxiety to see me and I saw him. When I questioned him he

frankly told me that he had only two connections on that fatal night, felt a sort of

electric shock through his organ, and fell sick. The case was hopeless and the poor

boy was sacrificed for relational and financial considerations. The girl is now a


The human body is a strange and mysterious combination of various forces or

energies, some of which are demonstrable and others are invisible, but all the same

real. How do the temperaments change for good or bad? After some years of love

and friendship people begin to quarrel and even try to kill each other. Sometimes

the electric, magnetic and ethereal currents suddenly change from causes, some of

which are known and many of which lie concealed behind the mysterious folds of

nature. If the first appearance of menses changes the whole course of a girl’s

career, then all the causes, which produced that result, will have to be examined,


their influences must be ascertained, their intensities should be properly gauged

and all reasonable attempts should be made to remove them, and secure

happiness. Therefore, this chapter of a girl’s history should receive the best

attention of all sensible men and women and no amount of time and labour spent

upon an examination of these details should be considered as wasted. The labour

involved in the examination of these details should be considered as the most

beneficial which a man could render to the service of humanity in the upliftment of

mankind, in their health and prosperity.

26. Uttarabhadra – Commanding general respect, blessed with children, dignified,

affable, fond of husband, respected by relations, charitable disposition.

27. Revati – Determination, doing charities, blessed with children and riches,

happy, religious faith.

I have named the general results produced by the constellations, when the first

Menses appears and when it rules on the day and at the time. Great caution and

discretion should be used in the delineation of characteristics. Take some

examples. Aswini rules at the time of Sani there in that star, Sani is debilitated in


Mesha and when he occupies the star, he produces evils, and his conjunction with

Chandra becomes malicious, producing sorrow, worries, immorality and social

scandals. Take Ravi there. Ravi produces altogether different results. The

influences of the star and the planet are mutual and undergo changes

consequently. Ravi is exalted in Mesha and with Chandra the chemical changes in

the body and the mind of the girl will be different from what they would be when

Moon joins with Sani in debilitation.

Therefore, the student must be very careful in predicting the results. Take a

traveller in a forest road. The time, the fatigue, the health of the person, his powers

of endurance, the distance he has travelled, the state of the scenery all round and

all along the atmospherical conditions, his dullness or intelligence to the aesthetic

impressions and the fullness or emptiness of his stomach, the pleasurable or the

painful mission he has before him and other surroundings have to be taken into

account, before we can say how he feels and how he works. Similarly with

reference to planets, houses, stars, aspects, conjunctions, yogas, karanas, lunar and

solar days, weekdays and so many other forms of visible and invisible agencies, in

these combinations must be considered.

Astrology is meant for the whole world in all its complicated phenomena and

therefore, as it comprehends all the phenomena in nature, the intellect that is

engaged in its pursuit, must be very comprehensive, keen, piercing capacious

enough to hold all its complicated principles and possess an excellent analysing

and logical judgement which will be able to weigh the conflicting evidence, and

draw correct inferences which would forecast the future in all its details, with

accuracy and to the points. The ladies who read this book must study the

principles, get good practice and see how beautifully they tally with their

innermost promptings of body, mind and spirit. Some of their secret sins may so

well be concealed that they may never see the light of the day in the ordinary

course. They may deceive others in the world by their cautious and careful

behaviour, but they can never deceive their consciences which reflect all their

virtues and vices as in a clear mirror. Thus they will have a certain index to their

true character by the application of the astrological principles and they will see

how wonderfully they tally with facts. I have already mentioned in the above paras

about some of the inauspicious times. Now I will give them in full, collecting the

information from eminent works like Kalamrita, Narada Samhita, Jyotir

Nibandha, Jyotisha Ratnamala, Muhurtha-Marthanda, Muhurtha-Darpana and

other authoritative works on the subject.

3. Koulava – Passionate and joyful.

4. Thythula – Good temperament.

5. Garaja – Loss of children.

13.10.0 Influences of Time.

13.11.0 Results of the Zodiacal Signs

When the girl attains her age, it must fall in some Lagna or sign. The results will be

foretold here:

1. Mesha – Adulterous.

2. Vrishabha – Happy and prosperous.

3. Mithuna – Children.

4. Kataka – Very adulterous.

5. Simha – Good and happy children.

6. Kanya – Fortunate and wealth.

7. Thula – Happy and prosperous.

8. Vrischika – Immoral.

9. Dhanus – First half adulterous, second half virtuous.

10. Makara – Shameless and immodest.

11. Kumbha – Wealthy, happy and lands

12. Meena – Many children.

In all these cases the same precautions have to be noted. A girl attains age when

Mesha rises as Lagna. Suppose Sani and Kuja are there, she will become a _


regular prostitute. The planets by their conjunction in Mesha have added their evil

influences to the evils of Mesha and will make the girl a terrible whore. Suppose

there is Full-Moon and Jupiter unaspected or uncombined by evil planets, they

soften the influence of the sign Mesha and though the girl will have an inclination

to commit adultery, she will do not so for various considerations and reasons.

Therefore in predicting the influences of Rasis the influences of planets should

also be taken into careful consideration. Kataka makes her immoral, Kuja adds

greater facilities for the sinful work. Guru there averts the evil.

13.12.0 The Influence of Places on the Appearance of the First Menses

If the time of puberty falls in Mesha, Simha or Kanya, the menses appeared

outside the town; in Vrishabha in Places where cattle are kept or in cattlesheds; in

Dhanus in the house; in Thula in the same village or in another house; in Meena;

Kumbha, Makara or Kataka, near watery surfaces such as tanks, rivers, ponds,

lakes; in Mithuna when the girl was naked; and in Vrischika the girl attains her age

in the midst of the forest or wilderness or in grooves of trees. The question time of

menses may also be taken into consideration and all these details can also be

correctly predicted by the astrologer.

Menses; as a compound, is composed of so many physical and mental

characteristics, that all the causes which produced that compound will have their

individual influences and effects, and an analysis of all these becomes necessary to

find out what results may be reaped from it as a whole and from the individual

causes. All these are chemical in nature and astrology is a huge chemistry. As in

other departments of knowledge differences of opinion on some facts are often

found in astrology. How they have arisen are matters on which we as Alpatmas or

with narrowed vision, are not in a position to explain. Whether the Maharshis

found out the planetary influences by deductive methods, or by long and laborious

observations or by developing their intellectual powers and mental vision by the

practice of severe yoga, are points on which we can only make guesses but we

cannot say definitely that they have done so and so.

They say that the Sun in 10th house is good, Jupiter in the 2nd gives wealth, that

Saturn in the 1st produces nervous complaints, that Ketu in the 2nd produces short

temper, that Mercury in the 5th gives high order of intelligence, that Venus in the

7th causes great sexual passions and so forth. How did they know it and what

reasons or knowledge enabled them to say so? These are difficult questions to

answer. From the most perfect astronomical instruments we have now, not one

scientist is able to say why wheat has been ascribed to the Sun, rice to the Moon,

dall to Mars, Bengal-gram to Jupiter and so forth. Are they able to say why these

different planets govern the different organs of the body, different temperaments,


different professions, different branches of arts and sciences, etc.

I make a challenge to them and they must ignobly say that they cannot give me a

proper answer or they must seek shelter under their usual mean and shameless,

bulwark of calling all these productions arising from superstition and ignorance.

They will not have the nobility to say that they have not studied this branch of

knowledge and that they are therefore unable to speak on a subject in which they

are utterly ignorant. Can superstition and ignorance produce a huge literature of 4

lacs of sutras or 16 lacs of stanzas, and go into the minute details of human

conduct, characteristics and its future and past experiences. If they can do so, then

those superstitions and ignorances must indeed be very grand and colossal in

themselves. Why talk nonsense, when you are yourself, ignorant, and prejudiced?

It is indeed a grand phenomenon which changes the whole nature and career of

the girl.

Whatever may be the subtle causes which produce the phenomenon of Menses; the

event shows great physical and mental changes. The spiritual changes are natural

consequences of mental alterations. The minuteness with which they have gone

into the details of the appearance of the first Menses in a girl are indeed very

surprising. The must either be prodigal fictions of great brains or facts which have

been carefully ascertained by their expanded and Divine Vision. I leave the

readers to draw their own inferences on the facts I have adduced and the

arguments I have given. A handful of experience is worth ten cart-loads of

theories. The modern scientists are quite unfit to pronounce opinions on subjects

in which they are ignorant.


Results to be Predicted from the Directions of the Questioner

If the man questions the astrologer and stands to his East, the girl will have 7

children, three drops of menstrual fluid and she has worn an old cloth at the time

of first Menses. If he is in South-East, predict that the girl will have one issue,

seven drops of menstrual fluid, and the cloth she wore was black or blue. If the

questioner is in the South, 8 children, four drops of menstrual fluid and red cloth

should be predicted. If he stands in South-West, 4 children, two drops of menstrual

fluid and white cloth should be predicted. If in the West predict 6 issues, four drops

and dirty cloth. If in the North-West predict 2 children, three drops and rosecolored

cloth. If in the North, predict 9 children, one drop and varied coloured

cloth. If in the North-East say she will have 10 children, one drop and cloth

prepared from fibres or silk. If a girl attains her age in the constellations Moola,

Sravana or Dhanishta, she will have five issues. If she gets menses in Mrigasira,

Uttara, Uttarashadha, Uttarabhadra, Chitta, Hasta and Satabhisha, she will bear

10 children. If she attains puberty in Visakha Swati, Anooradha or Aswini, she will


have 8 children. If she has menses in Rohini predict 7 children and in Revati 9


14.1 Remedies for Evils

Give rice for weekday evid, ghee for Nakshatra or constellation, fruits for yogas

and cloth for Karanas. These should be given by the girl to holy men, after she

bathes on the fourth day of the menses, with religious faith and accompanied by

the Sastraic Mantras and suitable cash presents. When she follows this procedure

the evil indicated by the above planetary influences will be greatly minimised.

Some of the principal remedies mentioned here are for ready reference. These

must be selected according to the local customs and those ordained by the Vedic

persons and astrological experts in those places and suitable to the religion

professed by the girl, her husband and her parents. Remedies are Pujas to

Vighneswara, unyahavachana, Rudrabhisheka, Navagraharadhana, Homas to

suitable Deities, Nakshatrasanti, visiting holy shrines and baths in sacred rivers;

ponds and lakes, Surya Namaskaras, feeding of holy Brahmins and services to

family Deities.

The girl or her husband should not see each other till the periods mentioned for

the evil stars in it are over. Then when she gets again menses in an auspicious star,

she and he may look each other. If by chance or accident they look each other

before the time, remedial measures should be undertaken immediately for their

future welfare and prosperity. If they do not do so, then they will suffer, for their

negligence. The commentators and other writers on this subject observe thus. If a

poisonous cobra bites a person, sensible men should take immediate measures by


Mantras and Medicines to give him relief and save his precious life. If not the

poison works its own mischief. Similarly when a girl has her first Menses appearing

in evil times, those concerned in her welfare should at once take suitable remedies,

before the poison of the evil influences takes root and kills her, her husband or

both. The danger here is double.

This is more dangerous than the bites of the most poisonous reptiles. Here the

person bitten, if neglected,; will die himself, or herself, but in the cases of girls

discharging their menstrual fluids, and through them subtle electric and ethereal

currents, the dangers will spread over a larger area and if the stars, signs, Yogas,

Karanas and planets are all bad, then the girl brings ruin and destruction not only

on herself but also on her husband, her children and even on her parents and

parents-in-law. Such cases are unfortunately large and people should not allow

such poisons to work ruin unchecked by them. In certain constellations, particular

number of months are prohibited for sexual union and nuptials. I say the

temperature of an iron ball is 200 degrees centigrade. Will I be superstitious or

wrong when I tell a man, as having the correct knowledge of the heat of the iron

ball, not to touch it for some time till the heat subsides and does not prove


dangerous? Not only the sexual organs, but the whole body of a human being, go

on sending continuously electric, magnetic, ethereal and other subtle forms of

sparks or energies.

By a careful knowledge of these various forces, working for and against a person’s

interest Maharishis have laid down a large number of rules by a careful observance

of which he will be able to conserve his energy, overcome the obstacles and make

sure of success in his undertakings. The conservation of the right kind of physical,

mental and spiritual energies and forces is at the bottom of all Hindu Sastras, and

the terrestrial, celestial and electrical and other forces should not be dissipated to

the great prejudice of the persons concerned in any acts. Please examine all our

Sastras, rituals, and methods prescribed and sanctioned by the Vedas and then say,

after due performances and experiences; whether they are senseless or you are

stupid, not to understand and analyse them.

Ill-founded opinions are highly prejudicial and lead to dangerous results. I have

offered remarks which should set every man a right thinking. The minuteness into

which the Maharishis have descended and described, as if they have all the causes

and results before their mental vision, speak wonderfully for their comprehensive

powers, and show clearly that they were not drawing on their imaginations but

were describing the actualities enacted before their eyes. Can a huge literature of

four hundred thousand sutras spring upon the basis of clear falsehood? Can the

greatest Intellects in the world be guilty of propagating such vast literature when

they were not satisfied about their truth? This is not a theoretical philosophy, to be

indulged in wild mental excesses or simple flights of imagination. A girl, who

attains her age in Mesha, in Bharani, and with Sani there, must prove a terrible

whore, and it will be so. This is a practical and demonstrable science. Take a

woman with Kuja and Sani in Lagna without beneficial aspects and see if ever she

remains virtuous. Her passions are excitable and she will yield to them. All

evidence is either simple or complicated. In simple matters, the facts are easily

grasped or demonstrated, but in complicated cases, where the evidence is

confusing and confounded, even the best judges find it difficult to probe into truth.

Contradictions confuse them.

Human nature is so varied in temperaments that no safe inferences can be drawn

from the same premises. A kills B. The causes for this may be many. There is

always a tug-of-war between knowledge and ignorance, between prejudice and

truth, and between pride and faith. A knows about a fact. B does not know it.

Where is the common ground for them to meet? One has seen a phenomenon, the

other has not. What is the authority of the latter to deny about an event which the

former has seen and known? Exceptions to natural laws or admitted. When and

how they come, are not known. Judgements are not uniform or sound. The best

judges are often faulty. Therefore, it would be silly on the part of the so-called

scientists to deny truths in a science in which they have not even the elementary

knowledge. It may be argued that some of the statements made in the Indian

Sciences are found in India, and not in many European or other Asiatic countries,

and that the Science of Astrology cannot be called a science, since it cannot be

applied to the whole world. They cannot commit a greater blunder than holding


such crooked views.

All the details about the girls attaining puberty are applicable to the whole world,

and not to any particular sections of communities or countries. In India, as well as

in Europe, there are very large number of girls who remain unmarried till about 16

to 30 years, and some in Europe and America remain as old maids and are

generally dangerous to society, as they are not only corrupt in themselves but draw

towards them a large number of innocent girls and spoil them in various ways. But

provision is made for all these cases in the Astrological works, whose sutras have

only to be read carefully to find out the principles to apply to such cases. As

regards religious remedies mentioned in them, they may be so adjusted as to suit

the local conditions and customs prevalent there. Prayers, though different in

different religious systems, have the same aim or goal like medicines prescribed. in

different countries vary in effecting cures for the same diseases or same classes of

14.5 Purifications after Menses

On the first day, the impurity will be intense and she is compared to a Chandala,

on the second day, she will have the pollution of injuring a holy Brahmin, on the

third day she will be compared to a washer-woman and on the 4th day she will be

compared to a Sudra woman. Sristam Guna Karma Vibhagasa. Meaning, I have

created four castes – Brahma, Kshatriya, Vysya and Sudra, according to their gunas

– Satwika, Rajasa and Tamasa and Karma – the work they do. The above

injunction in the menses refers to the girls of the highest castes. But among the

lower orders, 3 days are observed and they hardly do any domestic work or touch

any sacred objects. After she bathes on the 4th day, she will not be permitted to

touch any holy objects nor can she prepare and serve meals. But she can and must

have sexual union with her husband if the flow has ceased. On 5th day, she should

take a clean bath and can attend to all domestic work and also touch the holy

objects. If she gets menses again within 18 days of the first appearances of menses,

she has simply to take a bath and get into the house as usual. If she gets menses on

the 19th day; she must remain one day in pollution. After 20 days she will and must

be in pollution for 3 days as usual.

In the rest of the houses, viz., 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 the results will be reverse

of those which have been mentioned above. She will suffer from Bhootas, Pretas,

Pisachas and other evil spirits. There are 56 varieties of Devils or evil spirits

mentioned in the Sanskrit Sciences and each has a nature and characteristics of its

own. All these or incantations which extend over 9 crores, some of them may be

mentioned here for ready reference Bhoota, Preta, Pisacha, Sakini, Dhakini, Jalini,

Mohini, Kamini, Malini, Bhetala, Rakshasa, Prarabdha, etc. The females are more

apt to be troubled by these evil spirits than the males. They are said to relish much

the drops of menstrual fluid and the urine which flows during menses period and

they will be waiting to catch their prey in lonely, dilapidated and neglected watery

surfaces. They are said to have easy access to unclean females when they are nude

or ill covered over their bodies. Pisachas are of two kinds. Those from the world

called Pisachaloka where they flourish in large numbers and are created by God as

Pisacha and those human beings who become devils and evil spirits after their

death as the result of their evil Karma, fondness, for worldly objects and from

various revengeful feelings, greed and avarice.

They are subtle in form and some of them are Kama. Rupas or those which have

the power of assuming any form, animal, bird, reptile or human as they like. They

can change these forms at their sweet will and pleasure, some of them are very


troublesome and cannot easily be exercised by ordinary mantras. Some of the

European scientists are opening their eyes to the existence of these Pisachalokas

and admit that there are many spirit worlds, about which they have yet to explore

and investigate and that their present scientific knowledge is still in an infantile

stage, about these matters. Saptakoti Mahamantras or seven crores of good

mantras and Navakoti Kshudra Mantras or nine crores of evil ones are completely

sealed letters to them and they have yet to sit at the feet of Indian Mantrics and

learn the mysteries of Mantras.

16.0 CHAPTER XV Special Rules

In all the horoscopes, belonging to males or females – Lagna plays an important

part and if Lagna, its lord, the combinations in it and the aspects it has are all good,

powerful and beneficial, the person, male or female, will be well formed,

developed and attractive, will live long in good position and comforts, will

command many servants, great wealth, landed and house properties, will be

educated and intelligent and will be a man of great financial resources. If on the

other hand it has combinations and aspects quite the reverse of the above, the

results will be quite unfavourable. He will be defective in limbs, ugly or illdeveloped,

unattractive, poor and distressed, neglected by relations and friends,

will be ignorant and will. be neglected by his society and community. For other

events in life other Bhavas and houses have to be consulted.

There is a large section of astrological writers, who have treated elaborately on the

appearances of first Menses in a girl, and who seem to attach even greater

importance to this phenomenon than to the birth time. I have, therefore, treated

this subject exhaustively in the previous paragraphs. A few points, however, may

be noted here. For personal appearances, character, general health, position and

happiness, Lagna as well as Chandra Lagna should be consulted for a female; for

the husband his appearance, position and behaviour, the 7th from Lagna should be

consulted. For conception, pregnancy, delivery, married life, prosperity, jewels,

ornaments and for the prosperity and adversity of children, the 5th from Chandra

or Lagna or from both has to be examined. For the longevity of the husband; for

the married state and widowhood the 8th house should be consulted.

There are few sections of females, who remain without marriage, who are not

threatened with widowhood, and who have no domestic surroundings to cause

them anxiety. These exceptions are also treated in the astrological works and we

draw the attention of our readers to carefully study the problems connected with

female horoscopy, analyse all the facts in the light of instructions from the Gurus

or elderly persons, utilise the recorded experiences of the past ages and masters in

this subject, use their own experience and intelligence and then after studying the

conditions of life in each country, community and family about their customs and

manners, pronounce such judgements, as will prove correct and unerring.

Women all over the world are rapidly progressing on various lines and in curious


manners. We have now no marriages, half-marriages, quarter marriages, civil

contracts, marriages for getting one child, companionate marriages, Hostel and

School marriages, marriages on railways, buses, ships and aeroplanes, on trees, on

rocks and so on that it is difficult to enumerate all of them. Modesty and sacred

marriages are receding before the fury of material civilisation. The women, as well

as men, are not very particular about the permanent bonds. They imitate Nature

and she points to birds and beasts. Once in the Medico-Legal Journal a cultured

woman observed thus: “In the Intellectual and Political Republic I have a right to

select any man, at any time, in any place, and under any circumstance, and join

sexually with him or with anybody else; as often as I please and reject him or them

whenever I like.”

This is a bold statement and a challenge to society on the part of a woman. But

times are treading in such directions, and the ancient ideas of modesty, chastity

and womanly virtues may be wrecked on the growing rocks of modern civilisation

and materialistic comforts. Whatever the forms of marriages there may or may not

be, one thing is certain, that the women and men are joining in sexual contacts, and

the menses results explained before in this treatise due to planetary, zodiacal and

constellational influences, will happen to them both individually and also

collectively. Fire burns all the same whether you touch it with the faith and belief,

that it is a deity or simply a physical phenomenon.

Take a venereal woman. It is immaterial whether you have her for sexual purposes

as a wife, as a concubine or as simply a woman for that single occasion. Will she

not give you her property of disease after you enjoy her? The name and form are

immaterial, but the fact is material, and the venereal complaint is demonstrable, as

you get it positively. I have known several women and men sending to hell, their

sexual co-operators, in quick succession. They may not become widows and

widowers, but they will suffer all the same from their venereal vagaries, and their

subsequent consequences. Take a boy’s horoscope: If he has Venus, Mars and

Saturn, Rahu or Ketu, in Lagna or 4th or 7th or 6th, even the purest girl who has

the misfortune to unite with him sexually will fall a prey to venereal complaints

and pay heavy penalties for such indiscretions. Similarly for females.

The subject is very interesting and instructive and I have done my best to present it

in as inviting a manner as possible. This interesting and instructive work Strijataka

or the Female Horoscopy, has been completed by me on Thursday, 28th May 1931

at 4 p.m., in my residence Hunsamaranahalli, Bangalore District, S. India, on the

Dwadasi of the bright-half of the lunar month Jyeshta, in the cyclic year

Prajotpatti, in Salivahana Saka 1858, in my 75th year, through the grace and mercy

of the Almighty, who has been graciously pleased to grant me full vigour and

vitality to my brain, to achieve this translation without any break or hitch. The

following are the combinations of planets in Rasi and Navamsa Diagrams at the


English, 28th May, 1931

Kaliyuga – 5033

Samvat or Vikramasaka – 1989.


17.0 Rasi chart: (from Mesha)

Solar month Taurus or Vrishabha, date 15th. Completion time 24 ghatis after

sunrise. Constellation – Chitta ruled at the time with the balance of Kuja Dasa for

2 years, 3 months and 21 days. I have made it a point to give the time of

completion of all my works as _ my own age so that my readers will be able to

judge the merits of my works and find out what measures of success will attend on

these publications ‘and how long I will be able to live through my works, as an

author. God’s glory is shown through the planetary combinations. Eminent

authors live after their physical death. Others die long before they are actually


19.0 Zodiacal Signs

2. Dakshinayana – Composing the six months commencing from Kataka and

extending to Dhanus.

In the Uttarayana, the Sun takes the Northern course, reaches the Northenmost

point in Meena and comes to due East in the end of Mithuna. In the

Dakshinayana, he takes the Southern course , reaches the Southermost point in

the end of Thula and comes to due East in Makara. Kataka and Makara are called

the equinoctial points or the equinoxes.

9. Margasira – November and December.

10. Pushya – December and January.

These lunar months are named so because on the Full-Moon day or Pournima of

each month, the constellation of such a name occurs thus: Chitta falls on the

Pournima of Chaitra, Visakha falls on the Pournima of Vaisakha, Jyeshta falls on

the Pournima of Jyeshta, Poorvashadha occurs on the Pournima of Ashadha.

Sravana falls on the Pournima of Sravana. Poorvabhadra in Bhadrapada. Aswini in

19.6 Periods and Sub-periods of Planets

There are various methods of calculating periods and sub-periods of planets but all

of them cannot be detailed here. The easiest and the most familiar is given below

for the benefit of our readers.

Take the 27 constellations and 9 planets and divide them. We get 3 constellations

for each planet. There are 120 shares in the planetary company and the shares as

given below are allotted to the planets.


Sun 6 years

Moon 10 do.

Mars 7 do.

Rahu 18 do.

Jupiter 16 do.

Saturn 19 do.

Mercury 17 do.

Ketu 7 do.

Venus 20 do.


Grand Total 120 years

These shares are permanent and hold the same proportion in all periods, subperiods

and other minor divisions. The shares are constant and unalterable and the

student will have no difficulty in allotting years, months, days.

will be found simply invaluable.
