Chapter 1.

Birth of Horasastra

1. Glory to the Sun-God, whose very breathing causes Creation in this world, with whose rising all

the animals (living beings) wake up (from the sleep of their ignorance), whose state at the

head (zenith) accentuates all activities (throws the brightest light on ones wisdom) and whose

setting (absence, weakness) causes all to sleep. Such Sun-God has his efficacy spread (all

over).

2-4. Varaha Mihira in his Horasastra, i.e. Brhat Jataka, stated briefly the essence of the teachings

of the learned sages viz. ten divisions of the Zodiacal Sign, Raja Yogas, longevity, effects of

planetary periods etc. This could not be done elaborately by him and hence I am conveying in

this work such useful essence, as called out from Yavanas etc., rejecting other un-useful

portions, which may be appended to the said Brihat Jataka.

5. I, Kalyana Varma, whose fame on account of patronizing Gods and administering villages and

cities is brilliant, like that of a female swan in the cage of the universe, who is the king of

Vyagrapada region, present this Saravali, an astrological treatise, with a chaste heart.

6. Saravali is a river with chilly water, which has taken its birth in the mountain called Kalyana

Varma, to ward off the thirst for astrology of those interested.

Thus ends the 1st Ch. Birth of Horasastra in Kalyana Varmas Saravali

Chapter 2

Meaning of Hora

1-5. The Creator Brahma has written on the foreheads of all living beings their fates, which are

deciphered by the astrologers through their pure insight. The first and last letters in the word

Ahoratra are removed and the word Hora is thus born and has come to exist. The Zodiac and

the planets are therein, as discussed. Some scholars say Horasastra is indicative of effects of

ones Karma, i.e. fate. Some call Lagna, or half of a Rasi, as Hora. In practice the science

relating to horoscope is called Horasastra. Hora is capable of analyzing the destiny. Barring

this Horasastra there is no device to help one earn money, to help, as a boat, to cross the

ocean of unexpected situations and to serve, as an advisor in journey.

7

Thus ends the 2nd Ch. Meaning of Hora in Kalyana Varmas Saravali

Chapter 3

Rasi Description

1-2. At the time of Pralaya (Destruction) the Universe plunged into darkness and was flooded with

water, when all of a sudden the Sun-God with his brilliant rays appeared in the Universe. He

created all the planets and the 12 months.

3-4. Description of the 12 Rasis. The names of the 12 Rasis are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer,

Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. The Sign Aquarius

resembles a man holding a pot, while Gemini is compared to a couple holding Veena and

mace. A pair of fish is the imagination about Pisces. Sagittarius is compared to a man having

a hip, like that of a horse and holding an arch in his hands. Deer-faced Sign is Capricorn.

Virgo resembles a virgin sitting in a boat with a lamp in her hands. A male holding Scales in

his hand represents Libra. The other Signs are identical with their names.

5-6. The Limbs of KalaPurusha and their Use. The Signs Aries etc. represent the limbs of

Kalapurusha, as under: Aries head, Taurus face, Gemini arms, Cancer heart, Leo stomach,

Virgo hip, Libra space below navel and private parts, Scorpio private parts, Sagittarius thighs,

Capricorn knees, Aquarius ankles, Pisces feet. If at birth one has benefic planet in a

particular Sign, the particular limb will be strong. A malefic makes such a limb weak.

7. Synonyms of Rasis. Kriya, Tavuru, Jutuma, Kulira, Leya, Pathona, Jook, Kaurpika, Tauksha,

Akokera, Hridaya Roga and Anthya are the other names given, respectively, to Rasis from

Aries onwards.

8. Synonyms for Houses. Riksha, Rasi, Kshetra, Bha and Bhavana are identical names given to a

House by the sages.

9-10. Zodiacal Halves, their Lords and Effects. The Rasi Chakra with 12 Rasis is called Bhagana.

Six Signs counted from Leo to Capricorn consist of Solar Half and the Sun rules this Half-

Zodiac. Six Signs in the reverse order from Cancer to Aquarius are Lunar Half and ruled by

the Moon. Barring Cancer and Leo, planets from Mars to Saturn get one Rasi each in each

Half. If at birth more planets occupy the Solar Half, the native is brilliant and, if more planets

are in Lunar Half, he is soft, good and lucky.

11. The Rulers of Rasis and Navansas. Mars, Venus, Mercury, Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus,

Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Saturn and Jupiter are the Lords, respectively, of Aries to Pisces. The

Navansas for these Rasis are calculated from Aries, Capricorn, Libra and Cancer in their

order.

8

12. Sub-Divisions Essential. The effects of a horoscope should be predicted according to the

divisions of Houses. Without knowing the strength of such Lords, one cannot lay even a step

forward in the direction of astrology.

13. Vargothamamsa. The first Navansa of a Movable Rasi, the 5th one in a Fixed Rasi and the 9th

one in a Common (Dual) Rasi are called Vargothamamsa. Should the natal Lagna be in such

Vargothama Navansa, the native becomes an important person in his circle. The rulers of

Dwadasamasas start from that Rasi itself.

14. Lords of Decanates and Horas. The Lords of decanates are first Lord of the same Rasi,

second Lord of the 5th Rasi therefrom and third Lord of the 9th from the Rasi in question. The

first Hora of an odd Rasi belongs to the Sun, while the second one is ruled by the Moon. In

the case of an even Rasi the first Hora is ruled by the Moon and the second by the Sun.

15. Lords of Trimsamsas. In odd Signs 5, 5, 8, 7 and 5 degrees are Trimsamsas of Mars, Saturn,

Jupiter, Mercury and Venus, respectively, while the arrangement is reverse in even Signs.

16. Lords of Sapthamsas. The Sapthamsas for the 12 Rasis from Aries onwards are,

respectively, counted from Aries, Scorpio, Gemini, Capricorn, Leo, Pisces, Libra, Taurus,

Sagittarius, Cancer, Aquarius and Virgo. The Lords thereof are those, in whose Rasis they

fall.

l7. The total of the number of Horas and that of decanates is sixty (24+36) in the entire Zodiac.

The figure is increased by 72, if the total of Horas + Navansas is required, i.e.

60+72=24+108=132. Each Rasi has 1800 Kalas (30?, each of 60).

18. Different Vargas. To know any kind of Varga (Hora, Navansa, Drekkana etc.) adopt the

following method. Convert the longitude into minutes of arc and multiply by the Varga figure

concerned. Divide the product by 1800. The resultant figure will reveal the required Varga.

19. The malefic and benefic effects of such Vargas are explained in detail in the Nashta Jataka

chapters (at the end).

20-21. Rasis Benefic and Malefic, Gandanta and its Effects. From Aries onwards alternatively the

Rasis are known, as malefic and benefic on the one hand and male and female on the other

hand. These are also classified, as Chara (Movable), Sthira (Fixed, Immovable) and

DvisvaBhava (Ubhaya, Dual, Common) Rasis. The ending portions of Cancer, Scorpio and

Pisces are called Gandanta. It is said, that one born in Gandanta will not survive. He will

either lose his mother, or he will end the dynasty, i.e. he is the last of his descent and will not

have any children. If, however, he survives, he becomes a king with many elephants and

horses.

22. Directions of Rasis. The four Rasis from Aries onwards indicate East, South, West and North,

while the remaining Rasis repeat in the same way. A journey undertaken by a person towards

the direction indicated by the Lagna, or the Moon (at the commencement of journey) yields

fruitful results.

9

23. DigBala and KalaBala. Human Signs, quadruped Signs, Scorpio and watery Signs are,

respectively, strong in the directions commencing from the East. Further during night-time

quadruped Signs, day-time human, or biped Signs and the second half of Capricorn, Scorpio,

Cancer and Pisces are strong at the time of daybreak and of nightfall.

24. Gemini, Cancer, Capricorn Aries, Taurus and Sagittarius are night Signs. Leo, Libra, Scorpio,

Aquarius, Pisces and Virgo are day Signs. The Signs Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Sagittarius

and Taurus are called Prishtodaya, which rise with hind part. Sirshodaya Signs (rising with

head) are Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Virgo, Aquarius and Gemini. The Sign Pisces is Ubhayodaya

(rises with both head and hind part).

25. Strength of Rasi. If a Rasi is aspected by its Lord, or by a planet, that is friendly to its Lord, or

by Mercury, or by Jupiter, it is said to be strong. Planets other than the above do not lend

strength by aspect.

26-27. Synonyms of 12 Bhavas. Lagna Thanu and Sakthi, Second Artha and Dhana, Third

Sahaja and Parakrama, Fourth Bandhava and Griha, Fifth Putra and Pratibha, Sixth Ari and

Vrana, Seventh Stri and Kama, Eighth Vinasa and Dehavivara, Ninth Punya and Guru, Tenth

Karma and Mana, Eleventh Aya and Bhava, Twelfth Vyaya.

28-31. Additional Synonyms. The 4th (Vesma) and the 8th are called, as Caturasra Houses. The

9th is known, as Tapa, i.e. penance. The 4th has names, like? Sukha (happiness),

Jala(water), Patala (nether-world), Bandhu (relatives) and Hibuka. The other names given to

the 10th House are Karma (deed), Agna (command), Gagana (sky, zenith) and Meshurana.

The 5th and 9th are Trines. The 5th is the only House connected with Dhi, while the 9th is

Tritrikona, the Trine of Trine. The 7th House is called Dyuna, Astha (setting), Jaya and

Jamitra. The 6th is Shatkona, 3rd is Duschikya and 12th Rippha. Kutumba is the 2nd.

32. Kendra, Apoklima and Panaphara, Effects thereof. The adjoining Houses with reference to

Angles (Kendras) are Panaphara. The Houses next to Panapharas are Apoklimas. The

planets in Angles give effects in ones boyhood. The effects of planets in Panapharas are felt

in the middle age, while the planets in Apoklima give result at the conclusion of the natives

life.

33. Upachaya and Anupachaya. The 6th, 10th 11th and 3rd are called Upachaya Houses, while the

1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 12th are Anupachayas.

34. Mlatrikonas of Planets. Leo, Taurus, Aries, Virgo, Sagittarius, Libra and Aquarius are the

respective Mlatrikonas for the planets from the Sun onwards.

35-36. Exaltation and Fall. Aries, Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo, Cancer, Pisces and Libra,

respectively, are the Signs of exaltation for the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus

and Saturn. These are deeply exalted at 10, 3, 28, 15, 5, 27 and 20 Degrees in the respective

Rasis. The Rasis opposite exaltation are the places of debilitation for the planets concerned.

And the respective degrees are of deep fall.

10

37-38. Long, Medium and Short Ascensions of Signs. Pisces, Taurus, Aries and Aquarius are

Signs Of short ascension. Gemini, Sagittarius, Cancer and Capricorn are of medium

ascension. The long ascension Signs are Scorpio, Virgo, Leo and Libra. The head and other

organs of the native will be similar to the Sign ascending at birth and other relative Signs. The

planets occupying such Houses will also influence the form and shape of the various organs.

39. Favourable Directions for Journeys. The direction ruled by the Lord of a Rasi becomes Plava

direction for that Rasi. This is Yavanas school of thought. If the king undertakes his journey

towards such direction, indicated by the Rasi concerned, he attains quick success.

40-4l. Colours of Rasis. From Aries onwards the following 12 colours are allotted to the various

Rasis, respectively, red, white, green, pink, brown, gray, variegated, black, golden, yellow,

deep-brown and white. If an idol of the Lord of the Ascendant is made in the colour allotted

and is worshipped, the native will destroy his enemies, just as Lord Indra destroyed the

demons.

Thus ends the 3rd Ch. Rasi Description of Kalyana Varmas Saravali Ch. 4.

Chapter 4

Planetary Characters

1-2. Kalapurushas Soul etc. and their Use. The Sun is the soul of the Zodiac personified, the

Moon mind, Mars strength, Mercury speech (voice), Jupiter intelligence, Venus comforts,

Rahu ego and Saturn grief. If at birth planets indicative of soul etc. are strong, these

significations will equally be strong. If these planets are weak, the effects are only meagre.

But in the case of Saturn it is different.

3-6. The counting of limbs according to the decanate rising at birth should be identified, as under.

If the first decanate rises, count from head. If second, from neck and, if 3rd, from pelvis. The 6

Rasis backwards from the Ascendant denote the left side of the body, while the 6 forward

Rasis from Lagna indicate the right side of the body. Should the first decanate of a Sign

ascend, the lapsed part of the Ascendant denotes left side of the head and the part to rise yet

indicates the right side of the head, the 2nd and 12th denote right and left eyes, respectively,

3rd and 11th right and left ears, 4th and 10th right and left nose, 5th and 9th right and left cheeks,

6th and 8th right and left chins and the 7th left side of the face (area yet to rise) and the 7th right

side of the face (portion already descended). If the 2nd decanate rises, neck, shoulder, arms,

side, heart, stomach and navel are to be understood in the same order. Should the third

11

decanate rise, pelvis, anus, penis, testicle, thigh, knee, calf and feet will be counted in the

same order. The decanates occupied by malefics denote wounds etc., while the ones by

benefics indicate marks (moles) on the limbs concerned. Should these planets be in their own

Rasi, or Amsa at birth, then the wound, or mole are right from birth. Otherwise these will be

caused later on (in appropriate periods).

7. Planetary Portfolios and their Use.

and Venus ministers, while Saturn is servant. The native acquires such qualities, as of the

materialization of the objective concerned will be, as per the period allotted to the Lagna

Lord. This should be understood according to the Ascendant passed.

28-29. Natural Friendship, Neutrality and Enmity between Planets. The Suns friends are Jupiter,

Mars and the Moon. The Moons friends are the Sun and Mercury. The Sun, the Moon and

Jupiter are friendly to Mars. Venus and the Sun are Mercurys friends. The Sun, Moon and

Mars are friendly disposed to Jupiter. Saturn and Mercury are friends of Venus. Mercury and

Venus are Saturns friends. The Suns enemies are Venus and Saturn. The Moon has no

enemies. Mercury is inimical to Mars, while the Moon is Mercurys enemy. Venus and Mercury

are the enemies of Jupiter. The Moon and the Sun are enemies of Venus. Saturns enemies

are the Sun, the Moon and Mars. If a planet is neither a friend, nor an enemy of another one,

there exists neutrality among them.

30. Temporary Friendship and Enmity between Planets. I

If a planet is in the 12th, 4th, 2nd, 10th, 11th and 3rd from another planet, then there is temporary

friendship between the two. If the position is in the 6th, 7th, 8th, 1st, 5th, or the 9th, then there is

temporary enmity among them. (This may be applied to a birth horoscope, horary horoscope,

or any such other context)

31. Five Kinds of Considerations of Relationship.

14

Should there be temporary friendship and natural friendship between two planets, then they

become extremely friendly. If there is natural neutrality and temporary friendship, there exists

only friendship between two planets. If there is natural enmity and temporary friendship, they

are neutral in relationship. Should they be naturally neutral and temporarily inimical, they are

only inimical. If there is enmity both naturally and temporarily, then they are greatly inimical to

each other.

32-33. Planetary Aspects. Planets lend ? aspect on the 3rd and 10th, half aspect on the 4th and 8th,

? aspect on 5th and 9th and full aspect on the 7th from their positions. Saturn has special full

aspect on the 3rd and 10th, Jupiter on the 5th and the 9th and Mars on the 4th and 8th. All

planets aspect the 7th fully.

34. Planetary Strengths. To assess the auspicious and inauspicious effects of a planet, its

directional, positional, temporal and motional strengths are important, for without these it is

considered to be weak.

35. Directional and Positional Strengths.

Jupiter and Mercury have directional strength, while in the Ascendant (East), the Sun and Mars in

the 10th (South), Saturn in the 7th (West) and the Moon and Venus in the 4th (North). If a

planet is in exaltation, Mlatrikona, own House, friendly House, or own Navansa and aspected

by a benefic, it assumes strength. The Moon and Venus are strong in even Rasis, while the

rest are so in odd Rasis. This is called positional strength.

36. Temporal and Motional Strengths.

The Sun, Jupiter and Venus acquire strength during day-time, while Saturn, theMoon and Mars

become strong during night-time. Mercury acquires vigour at all times. The Hora Bala goes to

Hora Lord, Masa Bala (Masa – month) to the Lord of the month, Dina Bala to the Lord of the

week-day of birth and Abda (year) Bala is credited to the Lord of the year of birth. Malefics

get strength in Dark Half, while benefics become strong in Bright Half. The planet, that is

victorious in war, that is in its retrograde motion, or, that is not combust become strong. The

Luminaries get strength in northern course. This is how Satyacharya detailed motional

strength.

37. Ayana Bala. Venus, Mars, the Sun and Jupiter are strong in Uttarayana, while the Moon and

Saturn are strong in Dakshinayana. Mercury is strong in both the cases. This is called Ayana

Bala.

38. Drekkana Bala. Male planets are strong in the first decanate, female planets in the third

decanate and neutral planets in the second decanate of a Rasi. Planets are strong, only

when they are away from the Sun, as per Yavanas.

39. Tribhaga Bala, or Triamsa Bala. The Moon, Venus and Mars get this strength in the first,

second and third parts of the night, respectively. This is similarly enjoyed by Mercury, the Sun

and Saturn in day-time, while Jupiter has it always, irrespective of day, or night.

15

40. Naisargika Bala (Natural Strength). Saturn, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Moon and Sun are

stronger than the other in the ascending order. Should there be similarity in other strengths,

then the one with greater natural strength prevails.

Chapter 5

Miscellaneous Matters

1. After discussing the Ch. Rasi Prabheda (Ch. 3) and Graha Yoni Bheda, or Graha Gunadhyaya

(Ch. 4) I now explain Misrakadhyaya (Miscellaneous Ch.), which is the most supreme of all.

2-4. Avasthas, or States of Planets. Planets have nine states of being, viz. Dipta (radiant),

Svastha (confident), Mudita (rejoiced), Santa (peaceful), Sakta (strong), Nipidita (oppressed),

Bhita (alarmed), Vikala (mutilated) and Khala. A planet in its exaltation is said to be in

Diptavastha. In its own House, it is in Svasthavastha, friendly House Muditavastha, in

beneficial Vargas Santavastha, with bright rays Saktavastha, in combustion Vikalavastha, if

defeated in planetary war, Nipidita, in malefic Vargas Khalavastha and, if in fall, in

Bhitavastha.

Notes. There are 27 Graha Samayas, i.e. planetary conditions. These will help us know, as to

what a planet is doing at a particular moment with reference to either birth, or query. Such

positions reveal specific results. How to calculate these positions and the effects thereof are

noted below. Find out the number of Signs from Aries to Ascendant. Again find out in what

number of Sign is the planet, for which (Samaya) is required, counted from Aries. Multiply

these figures mutually and again the latest product be multiplied by the total number of Dasa

period years of the planet, as per Vimsottari Dasha scheme. Divide this by 27 and the

remainder indicates Graha Samaya (some scholars, however, advise, that the planets

position is to be counted from Lagna instead of Aries. It is wrong counting the planets position

from Lagna, as the Sloka clearly says, vide Jyotisharnava Navanitam). Let us assume, that in

Virgo Lagna chart the Moon is in Sagittarius. Hence we count six Signs from Aries through

Virgo Ascendant and get 6. Again from Aries to Sagittarius we get 9. Multiply 9 by 6 to get 54.

The Dasha period of the Moon is 10. When we multiply 54 by 10, we get 540. This, when

divided by 27, yields no balance and hence the 27th Samaya is denoted.

Now the scheme of Samayas and their effects (1-27). Snana: good family, children, respect,

success and position. Vastradharana: precious stones, money, position and clothes.

Pundradharana: dear to people, gains in foreign countries, hard work and honour. Upadesa:

16

lands, conveyances and happiness. Siva Puja: fond of lands, royal wrath, expenses and

litigations. Aposana: wealth, fond of wicked people. Vishnvarchana: bile, grief, highly learned.

Vipraradhana: fortune, gains from lands, success over enemies, rich relatives. Namaskara:

soft-spoken, conveyances and capability to speak on either side in arguments. Adri

Pradakshina: bilious diseases, dysentery, litigations and penalties. Vaisyadeva: position with

king, good family, perennial progress. Athithi Satkara: cheat, jimminks and monetary gains.

Bhojana: sick, dismissed from the circle, cheating. Ambhapana: bad meal, bad acts.

Ahamkara: egoism and enmity with people. Tambula: good position, high learning, money

and fame of high order. Nripalapa: respect, pious disposition, diviee cows. Kiritadharana: big

position in Army, learned, wealthy. Ekanta Sambhashana: lazy, soft-spoken. Alasya:

abundant education, lazy, careless. Sayana: very short-tempered, sick, disputes in family.

Amritapana: foolish, harmful, blaming elders, destruction (some texts prescribe good results,

which only seem to be sensible). Madhupana: health, good children, beautiful wife, rich food.

Dhanarjana: respect, much wealth, skilful. Bhikshatana: loss, bad teaching. Nidra: longlasting

diseases, drunkard. Sambhoga: attached to base women, cunning and revengeful.

5. Effects of a Radiant Planet.

Should a planet be in Dipta state at birth, the native burns his enemies with the fire of his valour.

He gathers all kinds of wealth. His (band of) elephants soak the surface of the earth with the

juice, or ichor exuding from their temples. (That is the native will own a large number of

elephants. See the simultaneous literary ability of Kalyana Varma. A number of such

comparisons can be found in this work)

6. Effects of a Confident Planet.

Should a planet be in Svastha state at birth, the native acquires gold, family etc. He will be a

justice in a kings employ. He will own houses and will amass grains. His family will prosper.

7. Effects of a Rejoicing Planet.

If a planet is in Mudita state at birth, the native will be pleasingly disposed, will have wife, gold,

diamonds etc., will win the entire band of his foes and will enjoy all kinds of comforts in life.

8. Effects of a Peaceful Planet.

If a planet is in Santa, or peaceful state at birth, the native will have peaceful mind, comfort and

wealth. He will be a kings minister, will be learned, helpful to others, religious and fortunate.

9. Effects of a Sakta Planet.

If a planet is in Sakta state at birth, the native will have wife, clothes, scents, garlands etc. He will

be famous, liked by all and have his name spread all-over.

10. Effects of a Hurt Planet.

If a planet is in Pidita (hurt, oppressed) state at birth, the native will be subjected to grief and

sickness and will have enemies. He will be deprived of his own people and wander from one

country to the other. 11. Effects of an Alarmed Planet. Should a planet be in Bhita state at

17

birth, the native, even, if he were a king with varied paraphernalia, will be troubled by

enemies. He will lose his men. He will be defeated and will become poor.

12. Effects of a Mutilated Planet.

If a planet is in Vikala state at birth, the native will be deprived of his place, or position, dirtyhearted,

poor and will wander here and there. He will be frightened by his enemies.

13. Effects of a Planet in Khalavastha.

Should a planet be in Khalavastha, the native will grieve in sorrow, due to maintaining his wife

(the native cannot maintain even his wife), will lose all his wealth, will have an impure mind

and be never free from miseries.

14. Retrogression in Exaltation.

If a planet is retrograde, while in exaltation, it produces no effect (nothing good will happen). This

is the view held by some. Even, if it is in exaltation by its entry in retrograde motion from the

next Sign (for example Jupiter entering Cancer from Leo), the effect is same, for it takes

unduly long time in such trajectory.

15. Different Effects.

A planet in exaltation is considered highly strong. It is medium in strength in its Mlatrikona Rasi,

or own House. Its strength is only nominal, if it be aspected by a friendly planet, or be in a

friendly Rasi.

16-17. The elders among Yavanas say,that the Moon is of medium strength for ten days

commencing from Sukla Padyami, i.e. first of Bright Lunar Half. During the following ten days

(from the 11th day, or Ekadasi of Bright Lunar Half through the 5th day, or Panchami of Dark

Lunar Half, or Krishna Paksha) she is exceedingly strong. And during the third ten-day period

(from the 6th day, or Shashti of Dark Lunar Half through the New Moon day, or Amavasya)

she has very little strength. If at birth the Moon has brilliant rays, is bright circled and full, it

makes the native an un-encounterable king.

18. Good Results in Mid-Life.

If at birth the Lord of Moon Sign, or the Lord of the Ascendant, or Jupiter be in Kendra, the native

is happy in the middle of his life.

19-20. The effects revealed by various Rasis will correspond to the strengths of their Lords.

Should two planets have identical strength, the one with higher Naisarga Bala will prevail.

According to Chudamani Acharya the Ascendants strength equals that of its Lord.

21-24. Swakshetra, Mlatrikona etc.

In Leo up to 20?, it is the Suns and the rest is his own House. The Moons exaltation zone is the

first 3? of Taurus, with the remaining portion being her Mlatrikona. Up to 12? in Aries Mars is

in Mlatrikona, the rest is his own House. Mercury in Virgo has the first 15?, as exaltation, the

next 5 (15?1-20?), as Mlatrikona and the remaining portion is termed, as own House. In

Sagittarius first 10? is Jupiters Mlatrikona, with the rest being own House. The first 5? in Libra

18

is Mlatrikona of Venus and the balance his own House. Aquarius is Mlatrikona for Saturn in

the initial 20? portion and the last 10? in Aquarius is his own House.

25. Effects of Exalted Planets etc.

If a planet is exalted, it gives auspicious results to full extent. It is futile, if in debilitation. The

results are limited in an enemys camp. The auspicious effects given by a planet are ? in a

friendly House, ? in own House and ? in Mlatrikona Rasi.

26. Inauspiciousness of Planets.

A planet is fully inauspicious, if it is in its debilitation; it is somewhat better in inimical House. Its

inauspicious effects are nil, if it is exalted, ? in friendly House, ? in own House and ? in

Mlatrikona Rasi.

27. The planetary combination,

that produces Utpata, the planet, that is combust by the Sun, with less brilliance, which is in

debilitation, in enemys camp, or, that is defeated in planetary war: such a planet not only

loses its potency to be auspicious, but also becomes capable of bestowing malefic effects in

full.

28-30. Effects According to Exaltation etc.

A planet in exaltation gives all kinds of wealth. It confers ministerial-ship, or leadership over Army,

if in Mlatrikona Rasi. If it is in own House, it gives happiness, money, grains, wealth etc. In a

friendly House, it gives fame, splendour, abundant good fortune, long-lasting wealth and also

wealth through king. A planet, that is in its own Hora, makes one courageous.

31-33. A planet in its own decanate confers virtues, while the one in own Navansa makes one

famous. Courage, wealth and fame are bestowed by a planet occupying its own Sapthamsa.

One becomes devout and helpful, if a planet is in its own Dvadasamsa. A planet in own

Trimsamsa gives happiness and good qualities. When a planet is aspected by a benefic

planet, the native becomes wealthy, famous, fortunate, chief of all, beautiful and happy.

34-35. If a planet is with Ojha, or Yugma Bala

(strength by being in male, or female Rasis), the native is worshipped by the public, expert in arts,

pleased, immune to sickness and prone to fear of other Worlds. A planet with positional

strength gives perennial happiness, friendship, courage, fixity of mind and independent

profession, or work.

36-38. A planet with directional strength takes the native to the direction ruled by it and gives

clothes, jewels, conveyances etc. And the native is happy in such a direction. A planet with

Ayana Bala similarly takes the native to its direction and confers various kinds of wealth apart

from fame. In both the cases, the planets should not be combust, or debilitated. If a planet

has Cheshta Bala, it sometimes gives kingdom, sometimes respect, sometimes money and

yet sometimes increases the fame of the native.

39. Effects of Retrograde Planets.

19

A benefic, if retrograde, is strong and is capable of conferring kingdom. If a malefic is retrograde,

it causes grief and purposeless wandering.

40. Auspicious Planets.

A planet with clear rays, or, that is conjunct with the Moon, or, that has won in a planetary war, is

capable of bestowing complete happiness and kingdom, that cannot be seized.

41. Diva Bala and Ratri Bala.

A planet, that has Diva Bala, or Ratri Bala, is capable of conferring lands, elephants etc. Such a

native defeats his enemies with courage and achieves kingdom and wealth.

42. Effects of Lord of Year etc.

The Lords of the year, month, week and Hora improve two-fold in their Dasas happiness, wealth

and fame. That is the Lord of the month gives two-fold results, as against year Lord, the week

Lord two-fold of month Lord and the Hora Lord two-fold of week Lord.

43. Effects of Paksha Bala.

A planet with Paksha Bala destroys enemies and confers diamonds, robes, conveyances, wife,

gold, land and fame.

44. Effects of a Planet with all Sources of Strengths.

Should a planet have all kinds of strengths stated so far and be bright with unobscured rays, it

confers kingdom exceeding the desires of the native.

45. Benefic Planets with all-round Strength.

If at birth benefic planets possess all-round strength, the native will have good habits, be truthful,

upright, beautiful, splendourous and be an expert in all deeds, respectful towards the wise

and Gods and will be blessed with scents, garlands, robes, ornaments etc.

46. Malefics with all-round Strength.

Should malefics be with such all-round strength at birth, the native will be a miser, will do bad

acts, be selfish, jealous of virtuous people, intent on promoting quarrels, wicked, torturous,

dirty, ungrateful, slanderous and ugly.

47-50. Planetary Stages and Effects thereof.

It is boyhood, if a planet is in its own House, or friendly House. In Mlatrikona Rasi, it is in youth

and in adolescence in exaltation. It is said to be in old stage, if it occupies an inimical House.

A planet in debilitation is in extremis. The corresponding effects are felt in the respective

planetary Dashas, i.e. periods. The results for such stages are, respectively, happiness,

virtue, kingdom, sickness with debts and death, or expenses.

51-52. Effects of Planets in Odd and Even Rasis.

A planet in odd Rasi with strength makes the native courageous and a warrior. If it is weak in odd

Rasi, the native is cruel and dull-witted. A planet in even Rasi gives soft nature, fear for

quarrels, love for water, flowers and clothes, good fortune, health and protection of own men.

Thus ends the 5th Ch. Miscellaneous Matters in Kalyana Varmas Saravali

Chapter 6

(Yoga) Karakas

1. Karaka Planets. Planets posited in own House, Mlatrikona, or exaltation and simultaneously in

Angles become mutual Karakas, or significators. Such kind of Yoga Karakas (co-workers) are

counted only in regard to Lagnas Angles. This view is held by Acharya Hari.

2. For example Saturn in Libra, while Cancer Ascendant containing Jupiter and the Moon and

Mars with the Sun in Aries become mutual Karakas.

3. Planets posited in exaltation, friendly Rasi, own Rasi, or Amsa also become Karakas. The Sun

in the 10th, as above, becomes greatly significant. This is Chanakyas opinion.

4. Planets though not in Vargas, like own House, become Karakas, if they are in Lagna, 4th, 10th,

or even the 11th. But this view is not acceptable to great sages.

5-6. Effects of Karakas. Even though a person may be born in base strata, he will become chief,

if he has Karaka Grahas. One born in royal family without doubt becomes a king in such a

case. While analyzing the Yogas, such Karakatwas are along important and effects should be

declared only on that basis.

Thus ends the 6th Ch. entitled Karakadhyaya in Kalyana Varmas Saravali

Chapter 7

Planetary Indications

1. Lord of Week-Day etc. The Sun, the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn rule the

week-days etc. Whichever planet becomes the Lord of the first week-day in the month of

Aswina in the year of Aswina, will become the Lord of month and year.

2-3. The fourth planet counted from the Lord of the first year rules the second year. Similar

counting of fourth Lords for the subsequent years should be made to know the Lords thereof.

There are 24 Horas (planetary hours) in each day (from one Sun-rise to the next). The first

Hora is ruled by the Lord of the week day, while the subsequent ones are ruled by the Lords

of the sixth week-days thereof. Thirty (Savana) days make one (Savana) month. To know the

Lord of the week-day in particular month, the months past should be multiplied by 30,

increased by one and divided by 7. The remainder represents the Lord of the week-day

counted from the earlier week-day Lord.

21

4. A Savana month has 30 days and each month, viz. Chaitra, Visakha etc., commences with the

first day of Bright half and ends with the 30th Tithi (Amavasya).

5-6. Bhava Effects. The good effects relating to a Bhava can be better reaped, if an enterprise

relating to that Bhava is started in an Ascendant ruled by the Lord of that Bhava, or, when the

Lord thereof is in an Upachaya House, or on the week-day, Hora, year, or month ruled by that

Bhava Lord. The good effects will be 25% by year Lord, 50% by month Lord, 75% by Lord of

week and 100% by Hora Lord.

7-13. Planets Rulerships. The Sun rules snakes, wool, hills, gold, weapons, poison, fire,

medicines, kings, Aryas (foreigners in general), river banks, forest, wood and Mantras. The

Moon indicates poets, flowers, eatables, beads, silver, conch, salt, water, arrow, robes,

ornaments, females, Ghi, sesamum, oil and sleep. Mars rules blood, copper, Army, red cloth.

Mercury minerals, earth, king, destruction, swooning, bile and thieves. Mercury rules Veda,

writing, sculpture, medicines, expertise, ministership, speech, jokes, birds, couples, fame,

Vanaspathi (a large forest tree, which bears fruit apparently without any blossoms) and gold.

Jupiter rules auspiciousness, virtue, physical stoutness, prowess, preceptorship, deputation,

city, state (province), gold, bed, conveyance, position, grains, residence and sons. Venus

rules diamonds, ornaments, marriage, scents, friends, wreaths, females, cow dung, diagnosis

(apart from meaning diagnosis also indicates end, purity, rope to tying up a calf etc.),

education, sexual enjoyment and gold. Saturn is Karaka for lead, zinc, black metals, inferior

grains, dead relatives, fools, servants, mean women, saleable goods, poor people and selfrestraint

(apart from meaning self-restraint also means investing with sacred thread, which is

in vogue to give second birth to Brahmins).

14-15. Planetary Places. The Sun rules Kalinga (a Coromandel district), the Moon Yavana

(Greek, Mohamedan, or European countries), Venus plain river banks, Jupiter Sindhu

(Indus), Mercury Magadha (southern part of Bihar), Saturn Saurashtra (Gujarat), Mars Ujjain

and the nodes Dravida country (five tribes: Dravida, Karnataka, Gurjara, Maharashtra and

Tailanga).

Thus ends the 7th Ch. entitled Karakadhyaya in Kalyana Varmas Saravali.

Chapter 8

Conception

1-3. A Female Menstruation.

Without the knowledge of conception time one cannot understand the effects of the various

divisions, like Rasi. That is why I explain below about conception, which is the cause of births

of all animals. As a result of Moons transit in Anupachaya Rasis and in aspect of Mars, a

female obtains her menses. The Moon is water and Mars is fire. Water produces blood and

fire produces bile. When blood is enraged by bile, the women gets her menstruation.

4-7. The menstruation so caused makes the female capable of conception. If the Moon is in

Upachaya, it makes the menses defunct for conception. However, if the Moon in Upachaya is

aspected by Jupiter, or her friends, or especially Venus, the woman affectionately cohabits

with the male. If the Moon is aspected by Mars, the female unites with a person other than

husband. The Sun, if aspecting the Moon, indicates a king, while Saturn aspecting denotes a

servant. Similar inferences should be made, if the Moon is aspected by malefics only, without

aspect of benefics. If the Moon is aspected by malefics, like Mars, then the female gives up

her home and becomes a prostitute.

8-10. The 7th House from Lagna at the time of copulation indicates the disposition of the couple. If

there is a malefics aspect to the Lagna at the time of copulation, the couple unites angrily and

with quarrel. Should it be benefics aspect, then the sexual enjoyment will be (pleasing), as

enumerated by Vatasyayana Maharsi. If there be both malefic and benefic aspects on the 7th,

the sexual act is mixed in nature. According to ones past deeds, to ripen its fruits the semen

enters the womb and conception ensues.

11-12. Occurrence of Pregnancy.

If the transit Sun and Venus be in Upachaya Rasis with strength with reference to the male

partners nativity and occupy even Navamsas, there is scope of pregnancy to be caused by

the particular intercourse. Similar effects follow, if strong Moon and strong Mars be in

Upachaya Rasis in transit with reference to the females horoscope and be in even

Navamsas. Alternatively Venus, Sun, Mars and Moon should be in Upachaya Houses in own

Amsas, or Jupiter be in Lagna, 5th, or 9th with strength to cause pregnancy.

13. Disposition of Foetus. The child in the womb will be according to the mental disposition of the

couple and their desires and according to Tridoshas (bile, phlegm and wind) prevailing.

14-15. Sex of the Child. Should Lagna, Moon, Jupiter and the Sun be strong and be in male

Rasis and male Navamsas, birth of a male child be predicted. If they are in even Rasis and

23

even Amsas, predict female child. If strong Jupiter and Sun be in male Rasis, male child will

be born. Female child should be expected, if Venus, Moon and Mars are in even Rasis.

16. Twin Birth. If the Sun and Jupiter be in Gemini, or Sagittarius in aspect to Mercury, birth of

two male children be predicted. Two female children will be born, if Venus, Mars and the

Moon be in Pisces, or Virgo in aspect (of) Mercury.

17. Male Birth. If Saturn is in odd House other than Lagna, a male child will be born. Such Yogas

and strengths at the time of Adhana should be properly assessed to predict birth of male, or

female child.

18-20. Birth of Hermaphrodite.

Birth of a hermaphrodite should be declared, if the Sun and the Moon be in odd Rasis and be in

mutual aspect, or, if Mercury and Saturn be in mutual aspect from odd Rasis, or, if Mars

aspects the Sun, who is in an even Rasi, or, if the Moon is in Lagna in odd Rasi. These are

the views of sages. If Mars aspects Mercury in odd Rasi and simultaneously the Moon in

even Rasi, same effect follows. Alternatively if Lagna, Moon and Mercury be in odd Rasi and

odd Navansa and aspected by Venus and Saturn, eunuch birth is indicated.

21-22. One Male Child and One Female Child to be Born. Should Lagna and Moon be in even

Rasis and be aspected by a strong planet, then there are twins in the womb (one male child

and one female child). Similar results follow, if the Moon and Venus are in even Rasis, or

Common Signs and be strong.

23-26. Birth of Triplets.

The following Yogas prevailing at the time of Adhana lead to births of triplets. Mercury remaining

in Gemini Navansa aspecting a planet, who also falls in Common Navansa (a), Mercury

remaining in Gemini Navansa aspecting a Sign, which ascends (b), Mercury in Virgo

Navansa aspecting a planet falling in Common Navansa (c), Mercury in Virgo Navansa

aspecting a Common Sign, which ascends (d), Mercury in Gemini Amsa aspecting a planet in

Gemini Amsa, or Sagittarius Amsa (e), Mercury in Gemini Navansa aspecting the Lagna,

which falls in Gemini Navansa, or Sagittarius Navansa (f), Mercury in 7th aspecting a planet in

Kanya, or Meena Navansa, or aspecting such Lagna Navansa (g). Combinations (a) and (b)

lead to birth of triplets – one female and two males. Combinations (c) and (d) cause birth of

triplets consisting of two females and one male. Combinations at (e) and (f) cause three male

children, while the ones at (g) indicate three female children.

27. Mother, Father, etc.

If births take place in day-time, Venus indicates mother, while the Sun indicates father. In the

case of nights the Moon and Saturn, respectively, play these roles. Similarly the Moon

denotes mothers sister and Saturn paternal uncle for day-time births, while Venus and the

Sun take over these portfolios, respectively, in the case of night births.

24

28. Effects of such Planets. If the planets denoting father and paternal uncle are in odd Bhavas,

their well-being is assured. If the planets denoting mother and maternal aunt are in even

Bhavas, their well-being is to be predicted.

29-31. Process of Growth of Embryo and Lords thereof.

The embryo in the womb improves, as under. First month coagulated blood, second mass of

flesh, third limbs, fourth bones, fifth skin, sixth hair, seventh movement, eighth feeling of

hunger and thirst, ninth excitement and tenth ripens, like a fruit and ready for coming out of

the womb. These ten months are ruled, respectively, by Venus, Mars, Jupiter, the Sun, the

Moon, Saturn, Mercury, Lord of Nisheka Lagna, the Moon and the Sun. The dispositions of

these Lords indicate good, or bad of the respective processes.

32-33. Miscarriage. Should a planet be affected by celestial portents, or defeat by malefic at the

time of intercourse, miscarriage may take place in the month ruled by the planet concerned.

The Ascendant ruling at the time of intercourse can also become cause of miscarriage. If

Saturn and Mars be in the said Ascendant, or the Moon be in a House of Mars, or Saturn, the

results mentioned will come to pass.

34. Comfortable Carrying. Should the Adhana Ascendant be occupied by Moon, or should there

be benefics in the 5th, 9th, 7th, 2nd, 10th, 4th and malefics relegated to 3rd and 11th aspected by

the Sun, the carrying female is safe.

35-41. Adversities to the Pregnant Woman.

If at the time of Adhana the Sun and the Moon are hemmed between two malefics, while the

Ascendant has no benefic aspect, the female concerned dies. The same effect prevails, if the

said Ascendant and the 7th are occupied by malefics and be without benefic aspect, or, if the

said Ascendant is occupied by Saturn and weak Moon aspected by Mars. Again similar

effects shall come to pass, if weak Moon and the Sun are in 12th, Mars in 4th, while Venus is

between two malefics. Both the child in the womb and its mother leave this world, if malefics

occupy the 4th from the said Ascendant, or from the Moon, while Mars is in the 7th, or Lagna.

The same result follows, if Mars is in 4th, Sun in 12th and the Moon be decreasing and be with

malefic aspect. If the Sun is in Lagna, while the Moon is weak, or, if Mars is in Lagna, while

malefics are in 12th and 2nd without benefics aspect, death occurs of the mother along with

child. The Sun in the 7th at Adhana, while Mars is in Lagna, takes away the child along with its

mother through instruments.

42-43. Progress of Pregnancy.

Should there be aspects from Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, or the Sun to the Lagna, the process of

pregnancy goes on well. The embryo develops according to the state of the Lords of various

months (in transit). In the third month the pregnant woman develops tastes to eat various

things according to the disposition of the various monthly Lords and Lagna Lord and the

Yogas caused to them.

25

44-45. Time of Delivery.

If at the time of Nisheka (i.e. Adhana) the Sun is in a Movable Sign, delivery takes place in the

10th month, if he is in a Fixed Sign, delivery in 11th month is indicated and in a Dual Sign it is

in 12th month. If a Movable Rasi ascends at Adhana, delivery takes place in 10th month, a

Fixed 11th and Dual 12th.

46-47. The matter of delivery can be guessed through the Vargas of Nisheka Lagna. The natal

Moon can be in the 10th from Adhana Moon. This view is held by many Acharyas. According

to Badarayana the natal Ascendant will be in the 7th from Adhana Lagna and natal Moon will

be in the 7th from Adhana Moon. Since there are several views on this, I explain below a view,

which is acceptable to all.

48. View Acceptable to all about Natal Moon.

Note the Dwadasamsa of the Moon at the time of Adhana. When Moon is so many Signs away

from her Adhana position (in a month, when delivery is normally possible), delivery will take

place.

49. Should a Navansa of Saturn rule the Nisheka Lagna and Saturn be in the 7th, the delivery

takes place after three years. If Cancer be the Navansa Lagna with the Moon in the 7th (from

Rasi Lagna), delivery occurs after twelve years.

50. Fraction of Day, or Night for Delivery. According to Nisheka Lagna being a day Sign, or night

Sign, delivery will be after so much of fraction of night, or day having passed.

51-52. Thus should be understood the possible time of birth in day, or night and the Lagna at

birth. In similar manner the difference between sunrise and birth, i.e. natal Ascendant and

(week)day, fortnight, Muhurta month etc. should be guessed. Such details relating to birth

should first be ascertained and then predictions should be issued with reference to nativity by

astrologers.

53-55. Yogas for Eye Defects. If at the time of Adhana (or at birth) the Sun and Moon are in Leo

identical with Lagna, the child born will be blind. There should be aspect of Mars and Saturn

on Leo. A bubble on the eye should be predicted, if Mars and Mercury aspect the said Sun

and Moon in Leo Lagna. I shall further explain Yogas affecting the eyes. Should the 12th be

occupied by waning Moon, left eye is destroyed and, if by the Sun, it is the right eye. If,

however, benefics aspect (the said 12th and the Sun/Moon), then by (suitable) efforts the eye

can be repaired.

56. If malefics are in Rasi Sandhi and the Moon is in Taurus aspected by Mars, Saturn and the

Sun, the native born will be dumb. If, however, there is benefics aspect, the person speaks

later on.

57. If malefic planets are in Rasi Sandhis, while there is no benefic aspect on the Moon, the

native born is dull-witted. Should Saturn and Mars be in a Navansa of Mercury, the birth is

with teeth.

26

58. Should Mercury be in 5th, or 9th from the Ascendant, while all other planets are devoid of

strength, the child has 2 faces, 4 hands and 4 legs.

59. If the last portion of Capricorn rises with aspect from Saturn and the Luminaries, the native is

short-statured. The same effect prevails, if the Moon is in Cancer identical with Ascendant

and aspected by Mars and Saturn.

60. If Pisces rises at birth with aspect from Mars, Saturn and the Moon, the child born is lame. If

there is a benefics aspect to the said combination, then relief can be expected after making

efforts.

61. Should Mars be in the Ascendant and fall in the ascendant decanate, or a trinal decanate,

receiving the aspect of malefics, while benefics are devoid of strength, the child in the womb

develops no head, no legs and no hands, respectively.

62. Whatever is stated in this Ch., should be suitably applied to natal Ascendant, if applicable.

And the rules stated elsewhere in regard to nativity may be used with reference to Adhana

also, if need be.

Thus ends the 8th Ch. entitled Adhanadhyaya in Saravali of Kalyana Varma.

Chapter 9

Conditions at Birth

1. To know the time of delivery I have explained the Adhana Ch. Now I explain the natal Ch., as

below.

2. If natal Lagna is in Sirshodaya Rasi, birth is with head foremost and a Prishtodaya Rasi at birth

indicates birth with legs foremost. The birth is with hands in such a position, if an

Ubhayodaya Rasi ascends. Should Lagna enjoy benefic aspect, delivery would have been

comfortable, otherwise difficult.

3-4. The place of delivery will correspond to the Rasi Lagna, or Navansa Lagna at birth. If it is a

Dual Rasi, or Navansa, delivery will be on the way. A Fixed Rasi/Ansa indicates delivery in

ones own place. Should the Navansa be of the same Rasi, the delivery is in ones own house,

otherwise it is otherwise. The delivery will be in the house of father, or mother according to

the indicator concerned being strong.

5-7. If benefic planets are in full, then the birth is in an enclosed place, under a tree, or on the

banks of a river. Should all planets be together and not aspect Lagna, or the Moon, then the

birth is in a thick forest. If a watery Sign is on the Ascendant and aspected by Full Moon from

a watery Sign being 4th, or 10th, birth is in water (river etc.) and similar results be predicted, if

Lagna and 4th are occupied by benefics and Full Moon is in watery Sign, or in own House.

27

8-11. If Scorpio, or Cancer ascends with Saturn and is aspected by Moon, birth is in a deep

place. This view is held by Yavanas and Maniththa. Should Saturn be in watery Rasi rising

and aspected by Mercury, birth is in playground. If the planet aspecting is the Sun, it is

temple and the Moon aspecting indicates barren lands. Should an Aranya Rasi (for example

Leo) be on the Lagna, the birth is in hills, forest, fortress etc. Should a human Rasi be

ascending and is aspected by Mars, it is burial ground, if by Mercury, sculpture home and, if

by the Sun, cowshed, royal palace, or temple. If the aspect is from Venus and Mercury, it

indicates pleasing location and, if from Venus and Jupiter, it is Brahmins place, or where

sacred rites are performed.

12. Should Jupiter be exalted in 10th (Libra Lagna), delivery is in a 2-, 3-, or 4-storied building. If

benefic planets are in Saturns Rasi, or Navansa, coinciding with the 4th, or 10th, the delivery is

in a veranda, or balcony.

13. To know the direction of the delivery room proceed thus. One of the Dual Signs ascending

denotes the quarter (of the direction), in which the room is situated. The other Signs from

Aries on indicate the directions of the room.

14. Should there be a (strong) planet in the Angle of a Sign, the direction, represented by that

Sign will prevail. If Sagittarius ascends with strength, it is 3-storied building, while Capricorn

denotes a spacious house.

15. If Venus is strong at birth, it is a new and painted house. Jupiter in strength denotes a strong

house, while Mars indicates a burnt house. The Sun stands for house constructed of wood. It

is a new house, if the Moon is strong. Saturn in strength indicates an old house.

16-17. The direction of the planet occupying an Angle denotes the direction of entry for the lyingin-

chamber. The planet, that is conjunct with the planet denoting house of birth, indicates the

direction, in which another house related to delivery is located. The Sun indicates temples,

the Moon watery places, Mars fire-houses, Jupiter treasury, Venus parks etc., Saturn filthy

corner and Mercury bedroom etc.

18-20. Now explained is the situation of the cot, on which the delivery took place. The 3rd, 6th, 9th

and 12th indicate the four legs of cot. The first two relate to southern side legs and the other

two denote the northern side legs. If the Ascendant is aspected by a benefic, the kind of cloth

relating to that benefic was spread on the delivery cot. The Ascendant leads to know the

direction, in which the mother was having her head. The depression in the cot corresponds to

the Common Sign occupied by malefics.

21-23. If the Moon is in her debilitation Sign identical with the 4th, or Ascendant, the birth is on the

ground. The number of attendants can be known by the number of planets posited between

the Moon and Lagna. The number of attendants inside the chamber is known by the number

of planets posited in the invisible half and the number of attendants outside the chamber will

correspond to the number of planets in the visible half. If the concerned planets are benefic,

28

the attendant ladies are with attractive features, beautiful and bedecked with ornaments.

Malefics similarly indicate, that such females are ugly, unfortunate and dirty. If the planets are

of mixed disposition, but with strength, the attending women are in between the said two

accounts. All these should be accordingly understood.

24-25. Out of the 12 Rasis the one occupied by the Sun will indicate the portion of the delivery

chamber, where light is kept. If it is Fixed Sign, the light burns steadily and, if it is a Moving

Sign, it is unsteady. The portion, that expired in Lagna is indicative of the content, to which

the wick has burnt already. The quantity of oil in the lamp will correspond to the waxing, or

waning state of the Moon.

26-27. There were many lights, if the Sun is aspected by Mars. Should other planets be all weak,

light was obtained by burning grass. Should the Moon be in a Navansa of Saturn, or be in

watery Navansa, or in the 4th House and be in aspect to, or in the company of Saturn,

delivery was in a place of darkness. There is no doubt about this.

28-30. Should the Ascendant be without the aspect of the Moon, the birth is behind the father, i.e.

the father was absent from the place. If the Sun is in the 9th identical with a Movable Rasi, the

father was in a foreign place. The Sun in the case of day birth and Saturn in the case of night

birth, if aspected by Mars, delivery is out of fathers sight. If the said Sun, or Saturn be in a

Movable Sign, death of father (in a distant place) should be declared. If the 5th, 6th and 7th

from the Sun are aspected, or occupied by malefics, the father was under confinement.

Movable, Fixed and Common Signs here indicate confinement, respectively, in foreign place,

own place and on the way.

31. Should the 7th House and the Trines be occupied by malefics, the delivery is not without

trouble. Benefics in 10th and 4th cause easy delivery in a large room apart from giving wealth.

32-33. The following lead to birth outside wedlock: Moon, or Lagna sans Jupiters aspect;

Luminaries being together without Jupiters aspect; Luminaries along with malefics not

receiving the aspect of Jupiter; Sun, Moon and Jupiter simultaneously in fall, while Saturn is

in Lagna and Lagna, Moon and Venus not being in aspect to Jupiter.

34-36. If the Moon is in 4th, or 7th along with malefics, it is evil to mother. The natives mother dies

(immediately after delivery), if there are malefics in 7th from Moon and aspected by Mars. Sun

in 10th from the Moon along with malefics indicate death of the mother. The same effect

prevails, if Sun is in 5th, or 9th from Venus (?) and with Saturns company, or aspect. If birth

takes place during night-time, while Saturn occupies 5th, or 9th from the Moon, the mother

soon leaves the world. For a day birth, if Mars is 5th, or 9th from Venus and aspected by

malefics, the mother dies (early).

37-40. If Mars and Saturn join in 5th, or 9th from Ascendant, while the Moon is in 7th, the child is

forsaken by the mother. Jupiters aspect in that case bestows happiness and long life. The

child given up dies, if the Moon is in Lagna and Mars in 7th in aspect to malefics. Mars and

29

Saturn in 11th bring similar effects. Should a benefic aspect such combinations, the child is

rescued by the respective relative. Both malefics and benefics aspecting indicate death in the

hands of others. Saturn and Mars joining in the same Ansa indicate, that the child will be

forsaken by the mother. Mars in 7th from the Ascendant in aspect to Saturn produces similar

effects.

41. The child acquires the qualities corresponding to the benefics aspects. Should the Sun be

strong, it resembles the father. If the Moon be so, resemblance is that of the mother.

42. When Leo, Aries, or Taurus rises with Mars, or Saturn, there will be coil around the limb, as

indicated by the Navansa Lagna Rasi.

43-44. If the Lagna falls in a decanate of Mars, or Saturn, while malefics, or Moon occupy Lagna,

with benefics relegated to 2nd, or 11th denote, that the child was born with navel cord coiled

around. Should the Sun be in a Quadruped Sign, while others with strength remain in Dual

Signs, it indicates, that twins were born coiled by same navel cord.

45-46. The physical appearance will correspond to the Navansa Lagna, or the strongest of

planets. It may also correspond to the Lord of the Navansa occupied by the Moon. If many

are strong, appearance and complexion will be mixed. Race, caste and country of birth

should be considered, while estimating features and character of a person.

47. Sages say, that the nature of the native will correspond to the Trimsansa occupied by the Sun

at birth.

48. Other information must be understood according to the friendship, enmity and debilitation,

exaltation, or placement in between of the planets at birth.

49. If weak Moon be with malefics, mothers death takes place, while the Sun being so causes

fathers death. These planets indicate sickness (to the concerned parent), if aspected by both

benefics and malefics. Benefics, however, cause auspiciousness.

50. The Moon, being bright, if be in her exaltation Rasi, or in her own Rasi along with Jupiter and

Venus in aspect to Mercury, or the Moon in 5th is capable of giving extreme auspiciousness in

respect of the natives mother. The Sun so placed proves auspicious for father.

Thus ends the 9th Ch. entitled Janma Vidhanadhyaya of Kalyana Varmas Saravali

Chapter 10

Evils at Birth

1. In the absence of knowledge of longevity, attempts to know other information are futile. So I

explain below Arishtas (evils) in order to determine longevity.

30

2. Male planets are strong in odd Rasis, bright lunar half and day-time. Female planets are strong

in even Rasis, dark lunar half and night-time.

3. There are three kinds of evils, explained by astrological expounders. These are preordained,

accidental and Yogaja (arising of planetary combinations). The third kind is dealt with below,

while others are explained later on.

4. Should Jupiter be in 8th and in a House of Mars and aspected by Sun, Moon, Mars and Saturn,

the child dies in 3 years.

5. If Saturn is retrograde in a House of Mars, while Moon is in 6th, 8th, or an Angle and aspect

Mars, the child born lives for two years.

6-7. If Saturn joins Sun and Moon at birth, the life-span is only nine years, according to

Brahmasaunda. Should Mars, Sun and Saturn be in Taurus identical with 8th, the native lives

for one month even though Lord Yama may try to save him.

8-9. Even, if there be a single malefic in 8th House, owned by Venus and aspected by other

malefics, the native lives for one year only in spite of the fact, that he may drink nectar. If

Venus is in 12th, 6th, or 8th, owned by Sun, or Moon and is aspected by all benefics, the lifespan

is six years.

10-11. If Mercury occupies Cancer identical with 6th, or 8th from Ascendant and is aspected by the

Moon, life is only up to 4. The efficacious Raja Yogas expounded by Yavanas may produce

persons of high descent. Even such children are subject to premature end in this case.

12-13. If the birth star is identical with the one, in which Ketu rises, the native lives only for two

months. Should the Sun be in 10th House identical with that of Mars, or Saturn and aspected

by strong malefic, the native faces immediate death.

14-15. Should the Ascendant fall in Nigala, Sarpa, Pakshi, or Pasa decanate and be occupied by

malefic planets, without the aspect of the decanate Lord concerned, the native lives up to 7

years only. If Rahu is in an Angle and aspected by malefics, the longevity is only 10, while,

according to some, it is 16.

16-17. If malefics are Angles and Trines, while benefics are relegated to 6th, 8th and 12th, one

born at the time of sunrise dies at once. If the three planets, viz. the Lords of Navansa Lagna,

Moon Sign and natal Ascendant, are combust, the person lives just for a few years.

18. If the 6th is occupied by the Ascendant Lord, death occurs in the year corresponding to Rasi

concerned. If the occupant is the Lord of rising decanate, death occurs in the month

corresponding to Rasi concerned and, if it is Lord of Navansa Lagna, the Rasi concerned

causes death in so many days.

19. If Saturn is in the Ascendant in aspect to malefics, longevity is only 16 days. If Saturn in the

Ascendant is in the company of malefics, death occurs in a month and, if he is alone in the

Ascendant without malefic connections, the child lives for one year.

31

20-22. If weak Moon is in the Ascendant excepting Cancer, Taurus and Aries and is aspected by

malefics, the child passes away (soon). The Moon in 6th, or 8th, if aspected by malefics,

causes death in one year, while, when aspected by benefics, she kills in the 8th year. Should

the aspect be from both benefics and malefics, the life-span is only 4. This should be decided

according to the strength of such bodies.

23-24. Should benefics be in 6th, or 8th and be aspected, or conjoined with retrograde malefic,

without the aspect of benefic, the child lives only for one month. If malefics are in 12th, 2nd, 6th

and 8th, without connection of benefics, the child dies in 6, or 8 months.

25-26. If the Lords of Lagna and the Moon Sign are together in 6th, 8th, or 12th and be combust,

the child dies in the year corresponding to the Rasi. Should the Lord of the Ascendant be in

7th, defeated by a malefic and be without a benefics aspect, death occurs in a month. Similar

clues should be drawn from Moon and her dispositor.

27-28. If Moon is conjoined with Mars and Sun and be in 2nd, or 5th unaspected by benefics, the

child doubtlessly dies in the 9th year. Sages declare, that, if the Ascendant Lord is in 8th in

aspect to all the malefics, who are with strength, the child dies in the fourth month.

29-30. If the Lord of Moon Sign, the Sun and his son are in 8th, the child dies in the year

corresponding to the Rasi concerned. Should the Moon be with malefics, be in 12th, 8th, 6th, or

Ascendant and be not aspected by benefics, while benefics are non-angular, the child dies at

once.

31-32. If malefics are in the oriental half of the Zodiac (from 10th to 4th Bhava Madhya) with

benefics relegated to the occidental half, birth in Scorpio Ascendant causes what is Vajra

Mushti Yoga. One born in such a Yoga does hardly live. According to Yavanas, if weak Moon

is in Lagna, while malefics are angular, or in 8th, (instant) death is caused.

33-34. One born in twilight does not live long, if the Ascendant falls in lunar Hora, while malefics

are posited in the end of the Rasis, which are angular, along with the Moon. Should the Moon

be amidst two malefics and be in 7th, 4th, or 8th, even Gods cannot save one from (instant)

death.

35-36. If the Moon is hemmed between two malefics, be in the Ascendant, 7th, or 8th and be in

aspect to weak benefics, (infant) death follows. Should malefics be in 7th and 8th and be

aspected by malefics, the child dies along with its mother. If there be aspect from benefics in

such a case, the mother becomes sick (there will not be immediate death).

37-38. If the Moon be eclipsed and be in the Ascendant along with malefics, while Mars is in 8th,

the child quits the world along with its mother. The mother dies of weapons along with the

child, if it be a solar eclipse with Sun and malefics in the Ascendant, while Mars is in 8th.

Should weak Moon be in the Ascendant and malefics be angular, or in 8th, without benefics

aspect, death is imminent. This view is of Satyacarya.

32

39-40. The undermentioned combinations cause death soon. Sun in 7th, while Saturn, or Mars is

in Ascendant. Sun in Ascendant, while Saturn, or Mars is in 7th. Saturn, or Mars joining Moon

and she not aspected by benefics. Malefics in Ascendant, 8th, 7th, 4th and 10th, the Moon be

decreasing in 12th.

41-42. Moon, Sun, Saturn and Mars are capable of inflicting infant death, if they are together in

Ascendant, 12th, 9th, or 8th, unaspected by Jupiter. If Ascendant is tenanted by Sun, or Moon,

while malefics are in Trines, or 8th and be not aspected by, or conjoined with benefics,

according to Yavanas, infant death is caused.

43-44. Venus joining the Sun and Saturn causes instant death. This combination doubtlessly

gives death in the 9th year, if aspected by Jupiter. Death in childhood occurs, if Moon is

conjoined with Mars, Sun and Saturn, provided unaspected by benefic planets.

45-46. If Sun is aspected by Mars and Saturn in the case of a day birth, it soon leads to death of

the father. The Sun joining malefics (for day birth) also indicates the same effect. The childs

father and paternal grandfather will face early death, if Sun is in Ascendant along with Mars

and Saturn, but unrelated to Mercury, Jupiter and Venus.

47-48. If Sun is hemmed between two malefics, or is conjoined with malefics, one born during

day-time loses his father early without any doubt. The childs father at once quits the world, if

planet Sun has Mars and Saturn in 8th from him unaspected by benefics.

49-50. If at birth Sun is in a Movable Rasi along with malefics, the father of the child dies of

poison, weapons etc. Malefics (or even a malefic) in 8th, 9th, or 7th from Moon can cause

death of the child along with its mother.

51-52. The father of the child was away at the time of birth, if Sun is in a Movable Sign, in case of

day birth and aspected by Mars. Saturn in a Movable Rasi and in aspect to the Sun in the

case of night birth denotes same results.

53-54. In the case of night birth, if Saturn is in a Movable Sign along with Mars, the father

undoubtedly dies in a distant place. If Sun joins Mars and Saturn in any Rasi, the father dies

before the birth of the native.

55-56. If malefics are disposed in Ascendant, 8th, 7th, 6th and 12th, the child dies along with its

mother. There is no doubt in it. Should only 6th and 8th be occupied by malefics, the mother

does not die, but the child dies. The reverse is true, if malefics are in Ascendant, 8th and 7th.

57-67. Mars, or Saturn in 12th can deprive the native of his eyes. Saturn right and Mars left eye.

The native becomes blind, if Sun and Moon are in 12th, while 6th and 8th are occupied by

malefics. Even, if one among the Sun and the Moon is in 12th, damage to eye is indicated

(Sun affects the right eye, while Moon affects the left one). If Rahu is in Ascendant, while Sun

is in 7th, the native is blind by birth. Should 2nd and 12th be occupied by Moon and Sun, while

malefics are in 8th and 6th, the person born is blind. If Moon is in 6th, Sun in 8th, Saturn in 9th

and Mars in 2nd, simultaneously, the native is blind. Should Moon be in the company of Mars

33

and Saturn and be posited in 8th, or 6th, the native looses his eyesight due to bilious and

phlegmatic imbalances. Should the said Moon be conjunct other malefics, apart from Mars

and Saturn, in this combination, if the House involving Moon is the 8th, the damage is to the

right eye and, if it be the 6th, the left eye is damaged. Should, however, this combination be

aspected by benefics, the damage is not at birth, but will be later on. If Moon is in 8th, or 12th

along with Saturn and be aspected by malefics, eyesight is lost due to windy and phlegmatic

complaints (here also 8th indicates right, while 12th the left eye). And, if benefics aspect the

said Moon in 8th/12th, the loss is not at birth, but in the course of time. If Moon is thus

associated with Saturn and Sun (in several ways), damage to eyes is to be predicted.

68-70. YOGAS ADVERSE FOR EARS. Moon in 11th, 3rd, or Ascendant along with malefics

causes defects of the ears. If she is aspected by malefics, the effect is along with birth (i.e.

immediate). Should 9th and 5th be aspected, or occupied by malefics, ear defects at the time

of birth exist. Malefics in 9th affect the right ear, while in 5th they damage the left ear. Benefics

aspecting, or occupying these Houses cause on the other hand good in respect of ears.

71-73. Whatever Rasi is indicative of a disease shall be treated, as the limb to be afflicted by

such disease. The Moon Sign can also be similarly considered. Benefics cause birth marks

on the right, or left side of the body, according to their occupation. Should malefics aspect

these benefics, loss of concerned limb should be expected. Malefics and benefics according

to their association with Moon and the visible and invisible halves (counted from Lagna)

cause bad and good results in this respect.

74-76. DEATH IN FEW DAYS. The Sun and the Moon in the 3rd House identical with Pisces

cause illness from birth and the child lives only for three days. If the Moon is in the 10th from

the Ascendant, while the Sun singly, or with all others is in the 3rd asterism from that occupied

by the Moon, the child lives only for one night. The life span is just one week, if the Sun and

Mars are in the 7th from the Moon.

77-82. EFFECTS OF TIME OF STARTING OF DISEASES.

The following combinations prevailing at the time of a disease cause death in so many days, as

indicated: 1) Malefics in 4th and 8th from Lagna-10 days. 2) Malefics in 2nd and 12th from

Lagna10 days. 3) The Sun in 5th, while Moon is in 9th from the Ascendant12 days. 4) The

Moon in Angle, while the Sun is in 4th, or 8th 3 nights. 5) The Moon in the 4th, while the Sun is

in the 6th 18 days. 6) The Sun in the 5th, or 9th from the Moon20 days. 7) The Sun in the

Ascendant, or the 8th and in aspect to Saturn and Mars will finally inflict death on the patient.

83-88. Mars in Lagna, or other Angles, while Jupiter is not so causes death. The Sun in Lagna,

Jupiter non angular and malefics in the 8th cause immediate death. Similar results should be

predicted, if the Moon is in the Ascendant, while Jupiter is in a place other than Angles and

malefics are in the 8th. Malefics in the 7th from the rising decanate, while the Moon is in the

Ascendant will also cause death at birth. (In this case, the Moon shall be in the rising

34

decanate, while malefics shall occupy the l9th decanate). A majority of planets in the

8thprimarily maleficsindicate longevity ranging from seven days to one month. A dead child is

born, if Saturn is in the Ascendant, while Mars is in the 8th, with Jupiter being not in an Angle.

89-9O. MALEFICS IN RISING DECANATE AND TRINES THEREOF. Saturn in the rising

decanate, while a malefic is in the 5th and another in the 9ththe latter two should be exactly

on trinal decanates, as Saturn indicates disease. Mars in the place of Saturn in the said

combination denotes (infant) death, while the Sun so placed indicates disease, deformity, or

death.

91. DEATH. If at birth Mars is in the Ascendant, while Venus is in an Angle, Mars causes death,

when he resumes the same point in the next round in his transit.

92. If Jupiter is in a Trine, Ascendant Lord in the Ascendant and Mars in an Angle to one of them,

it can cause immediate death.

93-97. EXCEEDINGLY LONG LIFE. The native lives for 108 years, if the 8th House is not

occupied, while Ascendant is free from malefic residence and Jupiter is in an Angle. A span

of over 108 years is granted, if Jupiter and Venus are in an Angle, while there are no malefics

in Trines and the 8th. Predict 120 years of life, if Venus is in the Ascendant, Jupiter is in an

Angle other than the Ascendant and the 8th House is not occupied by malefics. Similar span

of life is given, if Jupiter is in Cancer Ascendant along with Venus, or the Moon, while the 8th

House is not occupied. If Angles, Trines and the 8th House are not occupied by malefics,

ones longevity is comparable to that of Gods.

98. ELAPSED LONGEVITY. Weak Moon along with malefics, if posited in the 8th, 7th, 12th, 1st, 5th,

or 9th and un-aspected by benefics will only grant elapsed longevity, i.e. immediate death.

99. TIMING INFANT DEATH. When the child with powerful infant mortal combinations is in its first

year, death will come to pass, if the Moon with strength passes over the natal position of

another qualified planet, or on its own natal position (i.e. Janma Rasi), or natal Ascendant. In

all these cases, the Moon should be aspected by malefics.

100-103. DEATH IN CHILDHOOD. Any one group of the following planets joining in one House

will cause death in five years: d) The Sun, the Moon, Mars and Jupiter, 2) Mars, Jupiter,

Saturn and the Moon, 3) The Sun, Saturn, Mars and the Moon. Even, if a child is on the Gods

laps, it will die in 11th year, if the Sun conjunct Mercury is aspected by malefics. Death within

7 years of age will occur, if the Sun is in the Ascendant along with Mars and Saturn, while

declining Moon is in the 7th House in a House owned by Venus, provided this combination is

not aspected by Jupiter. Should the Sun and the declining Moon be in Angles and be

conjunct with, or in aspect to Mars and Saturn, the child has a longevity of only 4 years. In

these cases, i.e., where child mortality is indicated, there is no use of making any

calculations.

35

104. DEATH IN THIRD YEAR. If waning Moon, or Lagna Lord be in the Marana Pada and

aspected by all the malefics, but not benefics, the length of life is only 3 years.

Notes: Marana Pada has been interpreted, as 8th House by some. But it actually means the Rasi

counted so many Signs away from the Rasi, in which the 8th Lord is, as he is away from the

8th. Note how many Signs away the 8th Lord is from the 8th. So many Rasis away from the 8th

Lords Rasi is Marana Pada.

105-107. If all benefic planets are in the visible half of the Zodiac, while malefics are relegated the

invisible half Rahu be specifically in the Ascendant at the time of birth, the longevity is only 3

years. Should Rahu be in the 7th House in exclusive aspect to the Luminaries and be unaspected

by others, death before the age of 12 is denoted.

108-110. If Rahu is in Aquarius, Leo, or Scorpio identical with the Ascendant and is aspected by

malefics, the life span is only 7. If Dhuma Ketu rises followed by fall of meteor and strong

gale and, if birth occurs in Raudra Muhurta, or Sarpa Muhurta, the subject invites early death.

111-114. FATEFUL DEGREES OF THE MOON. The Moon is capable of inflicting death, if she is

in any of the following degrees at birth: Aquarius 21, Leo 5, Taurus 9, Scorpio 23, Aries 8,

Cancer 12, Libra 4, Capricorn 20, Virgo 1, Sagittarius 18, Pisces 10 and Gemini 22. If the

Moon is in such degrees at birth, death is indicated in the corresponding year and the native

cannot be protected by even God Yama.

115-118. Assess the strengths of Ascendant, Angles etc., at birth. Jupiter is life spirit of all

natives. The time of death should be known through Jupiter. If he is in the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th,

10th and 11th, or Ascendant, he proves fatal at the age of 5 10, 46, 20. 30, 40 and 50,

respectively.

Thus ends the 10th Ch. entitled Evils at Birth in Kalyana Varmas Saravali

Chapter 11

Evils and the Moon

1-2. I now explain the combinations, that are capable of nullifying the said evils, for these are

important in the Science of Horoscopy and initially explained below are the Yogas to

counteract the evils emanating from, or afflicting the Moon, as done by expounders, like Lord

Brahma.

3-4. If the Moon is Full and is aspected by all heavenly bodies, all evils are countered, just as

lawbreakers are destroyed by the king. Venus aspecting the Full Moon, while the latter is in

36

friendly divisions is capable of obstructing evils, just as abdominal remedies are able to cure

windy diseases.

5-6. Should the Moon be in her deep exaltation and be aspected by Venus, evils are countered,

just as phlegm and bile are controlled by induced vomiting. If the Moon be in the divisions of

benefic planets and be aspected by benefics, she will not prove evil though she may be

waning, just as nutmeg bark treats dysentery.

7-8. Benefics in the 7th, 8th and 6th from the Moon remove all adversities, just as madness is

removed by Kalyana Grita. Same is the case, if the Moon is conjunct benefics and be in the

decanates owned by benefics, just as saline water controls ear diseases.

9-10. Should the full Moon be in a benefics Dwadasamsa, all evils are removed, just as buttermilk

checks piles. If the Moon occupies a benefics Rasi and receives the Lagna Lords aspect,

adversities for short-life are counteracted, as even a noble housewife can destroy the fame of

the descent, if she seeks union with other men.

11-12. Even though the Moon may be in a House owned by a malefic, or in such Vargas, she

does not prove evil, if aspected by her dispositor. This is comparable-to a miser protecting his

money. If the dispositor of the Moon is strong and be in aspect to benefics, or friendly

planets, the Moon is not capable of harming, in comparison to a timid person, who cannot

face others even though he may be in war field.

13-14. If the Lord of the Moon Sign is in Lagna and is aspected by all planets, all evils are

removed, just as the ointment of holy fig and bamboo bark removes whiteness. The Moon in

her exaltation, own, friendly, or benefic Vargas, aspected by benefics, but not malefics

counteracts all-evils, as the Sun does remove fog.

15. Just as quartan fever is removed by inhaling Agashya flower, all evils are checked by Mercury

and Venus in the 12th of Moon, malefics in the 11th and Jupiter in the 10th.

16-17. Should the Moon be in the 6th, 3rd, 10th, 11th, or 4th from the natal Ascendant and be

aspected by benefics, evils are removed, as though a king destroys his opponents. The Lord

of the Moon Sign is singly capable of removing all evils, if he is with full strength and

aspected by benefics, similar to an inebriated tiger throwing away a thousand deer.

Thus ends the 11th Ch., entitled Evils and the Moon in Kalyana Varmas Saravali.

37

Chapter 12

Evils Canceled at Birth

1. A very brilliant Jupiter (i.e. not being devoid of rays) is capable of counteracting all evils, if he is

in the Ascendant, just as a single sincere Prostration before Lord Vishnu, the wearer of

Sudarshana Chakra, relieves one of the greatest sins.

2. Benefics with strength and malefics without it remove all evils, if Ascendant falls in a benefics

House and is aspected by benefics, just as those, who worship planets will have no sins left

to their liability.

3-5. If malefics occupy the Rasis and Amsas of benefics (i.e. such benefic divisions) and be in

aspect to benefics, evils are removed, just as a dejected lady remains away from her

husband. Should Rahu be in the 3rd, 6th, or 11th from the Ascendant and be aspected by

benefics all evils are destroyed, as though wind carries away a heap of cotton with it. If all

planets be in direct motion and in Seershodaya Signs, all blemishes are removed, just as

ghee is burnt out in fire.

6-7. A benefic planet victorious in planetary war at birth and essentially aspected by another

benefic, destroys all evils, just as a gale can uproot trees. If a planet has a halo (in the sky)

and is aspected by a malefic, evils are countered, just as the solar eclipse day bath in

Kurukshetra does.

8-9. If there is a pleasant breeze at the time of birth and the sky is with pleasing clouds and the

heavenly bodies be with splendour, the evils disappear in a fillip, just as rains settle dust. If

birth takes place, when Agasthya and others of Saptharshis (Alfa Carini, or Great Bear) rise,

all evils are destroyed, just as darkness disappears, when the Sun rises.

10-11. Rahu in the Ascendant identical with Aries, Taurus, or Cancer protects the native from the

clutches of all evils, just as a pleased king forgives the crimes of a person. If all the planets

(not of course the nodes) arc in their own decanates, all evils are removed, just as the Sun

removes darkness.

12. If at birth many planets are capable of giving benefic results, even then there is no blemish,

just as the king gets success in journey undertaken, when the Moon is in a Trine to the Sun.

13. Should Jupiter and Venus be in Angles, evils arising out of the various Rasis (i.e. Bhavas)

and of the Moon are countered. And the native lives for hundred years.

14. If Jupiter and the Moon be in Cancer, identical with 4th, 10th, or the Ascendant, Mercury and

Saturn be in Libra, while others are in the 11th, 3rd and 6th, one has illimitable longevity.

15. I have thus explained the Yogas, that are capable of countering the evils, as laid down by our

great ancestors May the astrologers please the king with the knowledge of these.

Thus ends the 12th Ch. entitled Cancellation of evils at birth in Kalyana Varmas Saravali.

Chapter 13

Lunar Yogas

1. SUNAPHA, ANAPHA AND DURUDHURA YOGAS. Excepting the Sun, any other planet in the

2nd from the Moon causes Sunapha Yoga, in the 12th Anapha Yoga and in both the 2nd and

the 12th Durudhura Yoga.

2. KEMADRUMA YOGA. Kemadruma Yoga is formed, if at least one of the said three Yogas (viz.

Sunapha, Anapha and Durudhura Yogas) is not present, or, if the Moons Angles are devoid

of planets, or, if she is un-aspected by all the planets. Such Yoga causes extreme difficulties.

3. DIFFERENT PERMUTATIONS. By all possible permutations and transmutations, one can see

30 kinds of Sunapha Yoga, 30 kinds of Anapha Yoga and 180 kinds of Durudhura Yoga.

4. EFFECTS OF SUNAPHA YOGA. One born with Sunapha Yoga will be wealthy, will have selfmade

prowess (or will reach an exalted position of his own efforts), be very virtuous, be

learned in Shastras and their meanings, be very famous, virtuous (like Lord Rama), be

peacefully disposed, happy, be a king, or a minister and be highly intelligent.

5. EFFECTS OF ANAPHA YOGA. One born in Anapha Yoga will be eloquent in speech,

magnanimous, virtuous, will enjoy food, drink, flowers, robes and females, will be famous,

calm in disposition, happy, pleased and will possess a beautiful body.

6. EFFECTS OF DURUDHURA YOGA. One born in Durudhura Yoga will be famous on the earth

for his speech, wisdom, valour and virtues. He will enjoy freedom, comforts, wealth and

conveyances. He will be liberal, but will come to grief by maintaining his family members. He

will have good behaviour.

7. EFFECTS OF KEMADRUMA YOGA. The native with Kemadruma Yoga will be deprived of life,

drinks, food, residence, robes and friends, though he may belong to regal scion. He will suffer

from poverty, grief, sickness and be dirty. He will live by hard labour, be wicked and be

inimically disposed to one and all.

8-9. OTHER KIND OF SUNAPHA ETC. The kind of Sunapha Yoga etc. arising from the Moons

Angles are (also) important. These Yogas give effects according to the state of the Moon (i.e.

depending on her rays, being Full, New etc.). The strength of the planets, viz. Mars etc.,

causing these Yogas, natives country and the race he belongs to must be properly

understood before evaluating Sunapha etc.

10-11. RESULTS OF SUCH YOGAS CAUSED BY MARS ETC. If Sunapha Yoga is caused by

Mars (by being in the 2nd of the Moon), the native will be valorous, wealthy, cruel in speech,

be an Army chief, will be fierce, torturous, proud and inimical. If Mercury be the cause of

Sunapha Yoga, the native will be expert in Vedas, Shastras and music. He will be virtuous

39

and a poet. He will be high-minded, intent on thinking of good for all and will possess a

brilliant physique.

12-14. Should Jupiter cause Sunapha Yoga, a person so born will have high learning, will be

famous and himself be a king, or dear to a king. He will have a good family and have plenty

of wealth. Venus will give wife, lands, wealth, prowess, quadrupeds and valour. The native

will further be honoured by king and will also be courageous. Should Saturn be in the 2nd of

the Moon causing Sunapha Yoga, the native will be skillful, be worshipped by the people in

his village and city and will have wealth galore. He will be devoted to his work and be brave.

15-19. ANAPHA YOGAS EFFECTS GIVEN BY MARS ETC.

If Anapha Yoga is caused by Mars-being in the 12th from the Moon, the native will head a band of

thieves, will be arrogant in disposition, be honoured, fond of war, given to anger, good,

praiseworthy, good-bodied and proud. If by Mercury, the native will be an expert in singing,

dancing and writing, will be a poet and an able orator. He will be conferred honours by tile

ruler. will have a brilliant body and will perform famous deeds. Should the Yoga be caused by

Jupiter, the native will be majestic, strong, intelligent, fond of assembly, famous through a

king and will be a poet. Venus causing this Yoga gives an exceedingly great liking for women.

The native will be dear to the king and will enjoy pleasures. He will be splendourous, famous

and will have abundant gold. If Saturn causes this Yoga, the subject will be broadshouldered,

be a leader, be indired to keep up his commitments, be rich with quadrupeds,

devoted to an infamous lady and be virtuous.

20. EFFECTS OF DURUDHURA YOGA CAUSED BY MARS ETC. If Durudhura Yoga is caused

by the pair of Mars and Mercury, the native will be a liar, be very wealthy, expert, very

wicked, greatly miserly, addicted to an old lady and be chief in his race.

21. If Durudhura Yoga is caused by Mars and Jupiter , one will be famous by his deeds, be mighty

(or wealthy), inimically disposed to many and disposed to anger, will protect his men and will

gather money.

22. If the Moon has Venus and Mars on either side, the native will have a virtuous wife, will be

fortunate, argumentative, pure, skilful, will like doing exercises and be bold in war.

23. If Saturn and Mars flank the Moon, the native will be the husband of a bad lady. He will save

a lot of money. He will have vices. He will be given to anger and be a tale bearer. He will win

over his enemies.

24. Should Jupiter and Mercury be on either side of the Moon, the native will be virtuous, learned

in Shastras, garrulous, be a good poet, be wealthy, capable of making sacrifices and be

famous.

25. If Durudhura Yoga is caused by Mercury and Venus, the person will be a sweet speaker, be

fortunate, splendourous, beautiful, be fond of dance, singing etc., be served, valiant and be a

minister.

40

26. If Mercury and Saturn flank the Moon , the native will move from one country to the other to

earn money. He will not be much educated, will be worshipped by others, but be inimical to

his own men.

27. Should Jupiter and Venus cause this Yoga , by being on either side of the Moon, the native

will be courageous, intelligent, will have political wisdom, will possess gold and gems, will be

famous and be in the employ of a king.

28.1f Jupiter and Saturn be such planets, as to cause Durudhura Yoga the native will be happy,

will have knowledge of politics, will be sweet in speech, learned, peaceful, wealthy and good

looking.

29. One, who has Durudhura Yoga caused by Venus and Saturn will conduct himself, like an old

man (i.e. so mature), be chief in his race, skilful, dear to women and will have plenty of

money. He will be honoured by the king and gather abundant wealth.

30. LUNAR YOGAS FROM THE SUN. If the Moon is in an Angle from the Sun, little effects will

be felt in regard to money, wisdom, skill, learning and modesty. These are medium, if the

Moon be in Panaphara (i.e. 2nd 5th, 8th and 11th) and exceedingly good in Apoklima (i.e. 3rd,

6th. 9th and 12th).

31. MOON IN VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE HALVES. In the case of a night birth, if the Moon is with

Parivesha (halo) and be declining in the invisible half of the Zodiac (i.e. being posited

between Lagna Bhava Madhya and the center of the descendant7th House), or declining

Moon in day time be in the visible half (i.e. between the centres of the descendant and the

Ascendant), even results will be felt in respect of fear, grief etc., (that is these positions confer

bad results). The Full Moon gives kingdom, if she be contrarily posited.

32. DHANA YOGAS. If all benefics are posited in Upachayas i.e. 3, 6, 10 and 11, the native will

acquire much wealth. Two benefics confer moderate wealth, while one confers little wealth in

the said Upachaya. These can be deduced from the Moon also.

33. There are other Raja Yogas, like Adhi Yoga arising from the Moon. I have not dealt with them

here which I have done infra.

Thus ends the 13th Ch. entitled Yogas from the Moon in Kalyana Varmas Saravali.

41

Chapter 14

Yogas from the Sun

1. VASI, VESI, UBHAYACHARI YOGAS FROM THE SUN. Excluding the Moon (and nodes) a

planet in the 12th from the Sun causes Vasi Yoga, in the 2nd Vesi Yoga and in both the 12th

and the 2nd Ubhayachari Yoga.

2. RESULTS OF VESI YOGA. One born in Vesi Yoga will be weak-sighted, firm in his word, be

hard working and will have a bent body. So say Yavanas.

3-5. EFFECTS OF VESI YOGA CAUSED BY DIFFERENT PLANETS. Should Jupiter cause Vesi

Yoga, the native will accumulate money, be learned and be good-hearted. If Venus produces

this Yoga, the person will be timid, will face obstacles in his missions, will have pleasant (or

swift) movements and will be defeated. Mercury causing this Yoga indicates, that the native

will be a servant, will suffer penury, be soft-spoken and be modest. He will be bashful. Mars

denotes, that the native will resort to base means, but be helpful to others. If it is Saturn, that

causes Vesi Yoga, one will join others wives, be wicked, will resemble an old person in

appearance,-be fraudulent in disposition and be contemptuous. He will, however, have

wealth.

6. EFFECTS OF VASI YOGA. One born in Vasi Yoga will possess excellent speech (voice), good

memory, be employed, will have looks towards, sideways, will possess a strong physique

about the waist, will be equal to a king and be a genuine person.

7-9. EFFECTS OF VASI YOGA BY DIFFERENT PLANETS.

If Jupiter should cause Vasi Yoga, the native will possess courage, strength and wisdom. He will

keep up his word. In the case of Venus, the person will be valorous, famous, virtuous and

reputed. Mercury emanating this Yoga will make one speak sweetly, be beautiful and obey

others orders. The Vasi Yoga caused by Mars indicates, that the subject will be victorious in

war, famous and will live with his own fortunes. If by Saturn, the native will be a businessman,

wicked, will steal others money, will hate elders and will be the husband of a pious lady.

10. The strength of the planet Sun and that of the planets causing these Yogas and their

association with various Rasis and Amsas should be understood and all results be declared

accordingly.

11. EFFECTS OF UBHAYACHARI YOGA. One born under Ubhayachari Yoga will have

forebearance, will be very fortunate, even bodied, firm, profoundly strong, not very tall, full of

everything, learned, happy, will have many servants, will protect his relatives, be equal to a

king, ever enthusiastic and will enjoy all pleasures.

Thus ends the 14th Ch. entitled Yogas from the Sun in Kalyana Varmas Saravali.

Combinations For Renunciation

1. Various sages have explained widely the combinations of four, or more planets producing an

ascetic. I now explain below such of the Yogas.

2. One born with the conjunction of the Sun, the Moon, Venus, Jupiter and Mars; or the

Luminaries, Mercury and Mars; or the Sun, Mars, Saturn, Mercury and Venus becomes an

ascetic.

3. The native having the combination of Mars, the Luminaries (i.e. the Sun and the Moon),

Mercury and Jupiter; or the Luminaries, Saturn and Mercury; or the Luminaries, Mars and

Saturn takes to renunciation and become a mendicant.

4. The Sun, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury-being together, or Mars, the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter

joining denotes a mendicant.

5. Should Venus, the Sun, Mars and Saturn; or Jupiter, Mars, the Sun and Saturn; or Mars, the

Moon, Jupiter and Saturn with strength be in conjunction at birth, native takes to asceticism.

6. One will be initiated into a religious vow, if anyone of the following group of planets be found

together at birth: d) Mars. Saturn, Mercury and Jupiter; 2) Mars, Saturn Mercury, the Sun and

Venus; 3) the Luminaries, Mars Saturn and Venus.

7. One becomes a mendicant to live in forests and hilly areas, if the planets group themselves in

conjunction at birth, as under: 1) Venus, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and the Sun; 2) Mars, the

Moon, Jupiter, Mercury and Saturn; 3) Venus, Mercury, Saturn, the Moon and Mars.

8. The native will become a sage, giving up (even) his food and be honoured by the people, if the

heavenly bodies form conjunction, as under: 1) The Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and the

Sun; 2) The Luminaries, Mercury, Venus and Mars.

9. The native will be initiated into a religious vow, if 1) the Luminaries, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and

Saturn, or 2) The Moon, Mars, Saturn, Mercury, Jupiter and the Sun, or 3) Mars, the

Luminaries, Saturn, Venus and Mercury, join together at birth.

55

10. A famous sage is indicated by the combination of 1) the Luminaries, Jupiter, Saturn and

Venus, or 2) Venus, the Luminaries, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury.

11. Note the conjunction of the following planets: 1) Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and

the Sun. 2) Venus, the Luminaries, Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury. It indicates an ascetic.

12. If conjunction is found among the planetary group, viz. 1) the Luminaries, Jupiter and Saturn;

2) Saturn, the Luminaries and Venus; 3) Sun, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter, the native will

become an ascetic living on roots and fruits.

13. The native will become an ascetic with bark garments, if Mars, the Sun, Mercury and Venus

are found together at birth. The same effect follows the conjunction of Mars, the Moon,

Jupiter and Mercury.

14. A patient ascetic (awaiting the blessing of the Supreme) is indicated by either the combination

of the Moon, Mercury, Mars and Saturn, or of Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

15. A sage living only by eating fruits is denoted by the combination of the Luminaries, Venus and

Mercury; or Mars, Mercury, Venus and Saturn; or Saturn, the Moon, Jupiter and Venus.

mentioned planetary conjunctions: 1) The Sun, Mars, the Moon and Venus, 2) the

Luminaries, Mars and Mercury, 3) Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and the Sun, 4) Venus, Jupiter, the

Moon and Mars.

17. Find the planets together in individual groups, as under 1) Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter and

Saturn, 2) the Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus, 3) The Luminaries, Mars, Mercury

and Jupiter. The result is, that the ascetic will be sorrowful (Unsuccessful mendicant).

18. Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury with strength, or Saturn, the Sun, Mercury, the

Moon and Mars with strength in conjunction produce one with clotted hair and bark-garments.

19. The Luminaries, Mercury, Mars and Venus, or the Luminaries, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, if be

together, the native certainly will become an ascetic.

20. If the Sun denotes asceticism (i.e. being the strongest in the Yoga), there will only be faith in

the religious order, while competence (to fulfil the order) will lack. If the planet, contributing to

such order is overpowered by another planet (i.e. in eclipse, planetary war etc.) the native will

give up the order after being initiated into it. Should many planets denote such an order, there

may be many kinds of religious orders, but these will depend on the order of the planet.

21. If the planet indicating asceticism is combust in the Sun, or is aspected by another heavenly

body, the native will only have an earnest desire to be initiated into the religious order, but will

not attain fruition of his aim. So say Yavanas.

22. The native will attain religious order, if the Moon, posited in a decanate of Saturn, is aspected

by Mars and Saturn. The same effect is produced, if the Moon occupies the Navansa of

Aries/Scorpio in aspect to Saturn.

56

23. If the Lord of the Moon Sign receives the sole aspect of Saturn (i.e. unaspected by others

than Saturn), one will enter religious order. Even in this context, the earlier Yogas, if present

will only prevail.

24. If the Lord of the Moon Sign, bright with rays, lends his aspect to Saturn, while Saturn is in an

Angle, the native will lose his fortunes only to enter into a religious order.

25. If one among the Sun, the Moon and Jupiter be devoid of strength and occupy the Ascendant,

or the 10th, or the 12th in aspect to strong Saturn, the native will become distressed ascetic.

26. Should the Moon with strength be in the 10th, falling in a benefics Navansa, while others

occupy their exaltation marks and all being in aspect to strong Saturn, the native will become

the Lord of the earth to only become an ascetic.

27. If waxing Moon, with superior strength, aspects the Ascendant Lord, the latter being bereft of

strength and being alone (in that Rasi), the native will be devoid of wealth and own men, be

miserable, sorrowful, will take to asceticism and will obtain his food with great inconvenience.

28. One will become a religious mendicant, if Saturn occupying a benefics Navansa aspects

others including the Moon. The Moon in this case should only be in Aquarius Navansa.

29. If the Lord of the Moon Sign aspects all the other planets, while these are all together in one

Rasi, the native will become an ascetic.

30. The Sun rules the ascetics of the following orders: Those, who worship the Fire God in

forests, or on river banks, those, who worship (the omnipotent) Sun-God, Elephant-faced

Ganesa and His benevolent mother Parvati, those, who recite the hymns of Gayatri (which

are very sacred), those, who are vowed to bathe in the sacred Ganges everyday and those,

who maintain (absolute) celibacy.

31. The religious order belonging to the Moon attracts the following various persons: Those

disciples, who smear their bodies with sacred ashes, those, who worship the Feet of Lord

Shiva, those, who are abandoned by the society, those, who are devoted to Bhagavati, those,

who give up company of others, those, who take to Soma Siddhanta and those, who carry

bowls in their hands (for begging alms).

32. The Buddhist monks, the tonsured, those, who wear white apparels, those, who beg wearing

good robes, those, who wear blood-red clothes and those, that have conquered their five

senses-all these mendicants are ruled by Mars.

33. Mercury denotes an alm-seeker, a conjurer, a snake poison curer and one, who eats the flesh

of a peacock.

34. The ascetics ruled by Jupiter are: those, who hold a single sceptre (or mace), those, who hold

three sceptres, those, who wear red coloured apparels, those, who are in the third stage of

their religious life, those, who pull on their lives with fruits and water (alone), those, who still

are attached to family ties, those, who maintain celibacy and those, who take to visiting

shrines etc.

57

35. Venus rules the mendicants of Saivite and Vaishnavite sects.

36. Religious hypocrites, bare mendicants and the ascetics, who sit under shadowy trees in

forests are ruled by Saturn.

37. Should Raja Yogas be simultaneously present along with the above ascetic Yogas, all the evil

results are nullified and the native will become very virtuous, will be adorned by all the kings.

himself becoming a king and will take to religious order.

Thus ends the 20th Ch., entitled Combinations for Renunciation in Kalyana Varmas Saravali.

Chapter 21.

Nabhasa Yogas

1. NABHASA YOGAS.

Yavanas have explained 1800 kinds of Nabhasa Yogas, out of which I detail below 32.

2-4. KINDS OF NABHASA YOGA.

The following are the 32 Nabhasa Yogas Nau, Chatra, Koota, Chaapa, Sringataka, Vajra, Damini,

Pasa, Veena, Kamala, Musala, Vapi, Hala, Sara, Samudra, Chakra, Maala. Sarpa, Ardha

Chandra, Yava, Kedara, Gada, Pakshi, Yupa, Yuga, Sakata, Soola, Danda, Rajju, Sakthi,

Nala and Gola. The Asraya Yogas, viz. Musala, Rajju and Nala are dealt with by Acharya

Manitha.

5-6. Gola, Yuga, Soola, Pasa, Veena (Vallaki), Kedara and Damini arc the seven Sankhya

Yogas. The two Dala Yogas viz. Sarpa (Bhujanga) and Mala are explained by Parasara

Maharishi. Savitracharya dealt with remaining 20 Yogas.

7. One born with an Asraya will obtain the good effects, viz., happiness, advantages and

qualities, provided there is no other kind of (Nabhasa) Yoga present in the horoscope. If other

(Nabhasa) Yoga is present in addition to an Asraya Yoga, then the effects of Asraya Yoga do

not come to pass, but the other (Nabhasa) Yoga prevails.

8-10. EFFECT OF AKRITI, SANKHYA AND DALA YOGAS.

One born in Akriti Yoga will be satisfied with his own fortunes, will earn through a king, be dear to

king and be famous. Should there be a Sankhya Yoga, the native will be happy only with

others wealth, will live only through others help and be always not peaceful. A native with

Dala Yoga will sometimes enjoy his own fortune, yet sometimes that of others, will pick up the

fruits thrown on the ground by others, be sometimes happy and sometimes sorrowful.

11. NAUKA, KOOTA, CHATRA AND CHAPA YOGAS.

If the seven planets occupy continuous Houses starting from the Ascendant and the other three

Angles, Yogas called Nauka, Koota, Chatra and Chapa are, respectively, formed.

58

12. YUPA, SARA, SAKTHI AND DANDA YOGAS.

If the seven planets occupy for continuous Houses counted from the Ascendant and its Angles,

the resultant Yogas are known, as Yupa, Sara (or Ishu-arrow), Sakthi and Danda,

respectively.

13. ARDHA CHANDRA AND GADA YOGAS.

If the seven planets occupy continuously seven Houses commencing from a House, which is not

angular to the Ascendant, the Yoga produced is known, as Ardha Chandra (Ardha Sasi)

Yoga. Gada Yoga forms, when all the seven planets occupy two successive Angles from the

Ascendant.

14. VAJRA, YAVA, PADMA AND VAPI YOGAS.

If benefics occupy the Lagna and 7th, while malefics are in the 4th and 10th Vajra Yoga is formed.

Conversely, if malefics are in the Lagna and 7th, while 4th and 10th are occupied by benefics,

Yava Yoga is produced. If all the planets are disposed in four kendras, Padma (Kamala)

Yoga is formed. Should the seven planets be relegated either to Apoklima Houses (3, 6, 9

and 12th), or to Panapharas (2, 5, 8 and 11 Houses), Vapi Yoga is formed.

15. SAKATA, VIHAGA, HALA AND SRINGATAKA YOGAS.

If all planets occupy only the Ascendant and the 7th House, Sakata Yoga is formed. Similar

participation of all the planets in the 4th and 10th Houses constitutes Vihaga (Pakshi) Yoga.

Should all the planets be in mutual Trines, avoiding the Ascendant, Hala Yoga is formed. All

planets relegated only to the Ascendant and its Trines give rise to Sringataka Yoga.

per the schools of thought of senior Garga etc.

18. ASRAYA AND DALA YOGAS.

Should all the planets be in Dual Rasis, Nala Yoga is formed. Similarly, if these are in Fixed

Rasis, Musala Yoga takes place and in Movable Rasis Rajju Yoga is formed. All Angles

occupied exclusively by benefics cause Maala Yoga, while malefics in all Angles produce

Sarpa Yoga. These two are Dala Yogas.

19. SANKHYA YOGAS.

If all the seven planets occupy one Rasi, Gola Yoga is formed. Similarly in 2 Rasis-Yuga Yoga, In

64. MALEFICS AND EFFECTS. Malefics in the 3rd, or in the 6th with reference to either the

SARAVALI.

Chapter 34.

Different Houses and Worldly Affairs

1-7. EFFECTS OF SEVERAL PLANETS ASPECTING THE ASCENDANT. If the Sun aspects the

Ascendant, the native will be valorous, will be irascible with females, be cruel, will gain wealth

from paternal side and will serve the king.

If the Moon aspects the Ascendant, he will be under the control of women, fortunate, be very

courteous, be very wealthy, softly disposed and will gain by dealing in water-born articles.

If Mars lends his aspect to the Ascendant, one will be fond of valorous acts and battles, irascible,

will have severed relationship, be very righteous and will have a long penis.

Should Mercury aspect the Ascendant, the native will have rich knowledge of arts and will thereby

gain and be quite intelligent, famous and honourable.

If Jupiter be the aspecting planet with reference to the Ascendant one will be interested in

religious observations, be honoured by the king, be famous and will be endowed with (the

company of) virtuous people, elders and guests.

Venus aspecting the Ascendant denotes, that he will be addicted to many prostitutes, be youthful,

will have happiness of wealth and pleasure and will be beautiful in appearance.

If Saturn aspects the Ascendant one will be troubled by heavy loads, travels and diseases, be

irascible, will be attached to aged women (i.e. will be fond of seeking union with aged

females), be devoid of happiness, be dirty and foolish.

8.GENERAL ASPECTS TO ASCENDANT. If a planet (whether natural benefic, or natural malefic)

aspects the Ascendant identical with its own Sign, that confers happiness and wealth, apart

from close relationship with the king. If the Ascendant is not owned by the aspecting planet, a

benefic then confers auspicious effects and a malefic evil results.

9.UNASPECTED ASCENDANT. Should the ascending Sign be not in aspect to even one planet,

the native will be devoid of (other) qualities and will acquire exclusive qualities of the Sign

concerned.

126

10-11. SPECIAL EFFECTS. If two, or more planets aspect the Ascendant, the native acquires

happiness and wealth. Even one benefic aspecting the Ascendant is auspicious, while a

malefic so aspecting is inauspicious. If the Ascendant is aspected by all the planets one rules

over the earth. Should all the planets be endowed with strength, he will enjoy all kinds of

happiness, be free from fear and be long-lived.

12.PLANETS CONJUNCT IN THE ASCENDANT. If three planets are together in the Ascendant,

the native will be devoid of miseries and will lord over the earth. But, if these are (exclusively)

malefics, he will be distressed due to fear, grief etc., will eat much and will be disregarded by

one and all.

13.ADHI YOGA FROM ASCENDANT. If benefics exclusively occupy the 6th, 7th and 8th, without

the company of malefics, Lagnadhi Yoga is caused. This Yoga confers ministership,

leadership over Army (justiceship) and kingship, lordship over many women, long life,

freedom from diseases and miseries, possession of virtues and happiness. So say Yavana

kings.

14. A planet in own Sign, or in exaltation/friendly Sign, according to sages, confers its effects

fully. If it is in fall, or is inimically placed, it is incapable of giving the results (due to the above

mentioned Yoga).

15-20. PRINCIPLES RELATED TO THE 2ND HOUSE. If Mars, Saturn and the Sun occupy the 2nd

House, the natives wealth is destroyed.

If weak Moon aspects the 2nd House, such effects are more pronounced.

Mars and the Sun in the 2nd cause afflictions to skin apart from causing poverty.

If Saturn, posited alone in this House, is aspected by Mercury, he will be greatly rich.

Even, if the Sun is posited in the 2nd House in aspect to Saturn, without aspect of others,

pennilessness will come to pass.

Benefics in the 2nd House cause advent of money in many ways.

But, if Jupiter posited in the 2nd House remains under Mercurys aspect, or Mercury so posited in

the 2nd House in aspect to the Moon, the entire wealth earned by the native will be deprived.

Weak Moon in the 2nd House in Mercurys aspect denotes, that even the ancestral property will be

destroyed; not only this, other sources of income will also be hindered.

Should the 2nd House [from the] Moon be aspected by Venus, plenty of wealth will be earned.

Same is the result by aspect of another benefic (i.e. Jupiter).

21-24. PRINCIPLES RELATED TO THE 3rd HOUSE. When the 3rd House is owned by a malefic

and is occupied by a malefic, the co-born are destroyed. Conversely, a benefics Sign being

the 3rd and occupation of benefics therein will cause happiness thereof. Now explained below

is the method to ascertain the number of co-born. The number of Navansas past in the 3rd

House denotes the number of brothers following the native. If other planets aspect the 3rd

House, the said number (caused by Navansas) stands increased. Saturn placed in the 3rd in

127

aspect to Mars causes destruction of co-born. But Venus in the 3rd and in aspect to Jupiter

increases happiness thereof. Mercury placed in the 3rd House, in aspect to Mars (or in aspect

to the Sun, as some texts read Bhaskara Drishtah instead of Angaraka Drishtah), the natives

friends are destroyed. Rest (relating to the 4th House) may be understood from Bhavadhyaya

(Ch. 30).

25-26. ABOUT THE 5th HOUSE. If the 5th House contains a benefic, or is aspected by a benefic,

or be a benefics Rasi, the native will surely beget children. If it is different, he will not obtain

progeny. If the 5th House counted from the Moon, or the Ascendant, the stronger prevailing,

has at least one Jupiters division in the various Varga calculations, or has a benefics Rasi in

it and is aspected by a benefic, the native will have legitimate issue.

27.NUMBER OF CHILDREN.

If the Navansa of the 5th falls in a benefics Rasi the number of children equals the number of

Navansas past in the 5th House. The aspect of a benefic on the 5th Bhava doubles the

number, while malefic Rasi, as 5th House Navansa and the said House receiving a malefics

aspect confers progeny with difficulty.

28. AUTHORIZING OTHER KINSMAN TO RAISE PROGENY FOR THE NATIVE. If the 5th

House falls in the divisions (like Rasi, Navansa, drekkana etc.) of Saturn and be with

Mercurys aspect, but without that of Jupiter/Mars/Sun, the native obtains progeny by

authorizing his kinsman to raise the same for him from his (the natives) wife. Similar result

prevails, if Mercurys Rasi be in the 5th House containing Mercury in it and is in aspect to

Saturn, but without the aspect of the others, as cited above.

29. ADOPTED OR BOUGHT PROGENY.

If the 5th House belongs to Saturn and be occupied by Saturn himself with the aspect of the

Moon, one procures a child by adoption, or by an act of purchase. Identical effect follows the

position of Mercury in the 5th House owned by him receiving the Moons aspect.

30. ADOPTION SANS CONSENT.

Should the 5th House contain Saturn un-aspected by others and fall in a Sapthamsa owned by

Mars, the native will adopt a grown up child without the consent of its natural parents.

31-32. BASE CHILDREN.

If the 5th House contains the Sun and falls in the divisions of Saturn receiving the aspect of Mars,

the children so obtained will be abject. Should the Moon be in the 5th House and receive

exclusively Saturns aspect, while the 5th House falls in a Navansa of Mars, even then the

progeny will be foolish and base.

33. If the 5th House is occupied by Mars falling in many of Saturns divisions and be in aspect to

the Sun, one will obtain a son, that is adopted by a stranger after its being cast off by its

original parents, so says sage Karuna.

34. ISSUE BY A REMARRIED WIDOW.

128

Should the 5th House fall in Saturns Vargas and contain both the Moon and Saturn therein, in

aspect to both the Sun and Venus, progeny will be begotten by a widow given to the native in

remarriage.

35. PROGENY BY A VIRGIN.

Should the Moon be in the 7th along with the Sun, or the Moon being in the 5th in aspect to, or in

the company of the Sun, one will obtain issue through an unmarried girl.

36. PROGENY BY A WOMAN PREGNANT AT MARRIAGE.

If the 5th House falls in the divisions of the Luminaries and contains the Moon and the Sun in

aspect to Venus only, one will have progeny by a woman, who will already be pregnant at the

time of marriage.

37. ISSUELESSNESS.

If the 5th House falls in a malefics Sign and be occupied by strong malefics without benefics

aspect, the native will be childless.

38. PROGENY BY A FEMALE SLAVE.

If the 5th House be in a Navansa of Venus and be aspected by Venus, one will beget progeny by

a female servant. Some scholars opine, that even, if the Moons Navansa and the Moon so

come in the picture, the said effects will come to pass.

39. SONS AND DAUGHTERS.

When the 5th House has exclusively the divisions of the Moon and Venus and be with aspects of

Venus and the Moon alone, or be occupied by these two alone, or, when the said House has

the divisions of only even Signs, the native will beget only female children. In a contrary

situation, (i.e. 5th House falling in divisions of odd Signs only and be excluded from the

occupation, or aspect of Venus and the Moon but others), there will be birth of only male

children.

40. CHILDLESSNESS.

When the Moon occupies the 10th House, Venus is in the 7th and malefics are in the 4th, the

natives dynasty does not descend any further.

41. LOSS OF CHILDREN.

Should Mars be in the 5th, the children of the native will pass away, as they are born. However, if

Jupiter, or Venus lend aspect to the said position, the loss relates only to the first child. If all

planets aspect (the said Mars), then there is no loss at all of children.

42. SPECIAL EFFECTS.

Should the 5th House be occupied exclusively by malefics, the native will be devoid of wealth,

own men and happiness. If Mars is in the 5th House, he will be distressed (or deformed).

Saturn so posited denotes sickness. The occupations of Mercury, Jupiter, or Venus will

confer abundant happiness and wealth.

43-44. ENEMIES.

129

If the 6th House is aspected by Saturn and occupied by Mars, the native will have fear from

enemies. Occupation, or aspect of benefics will keep one free from such fear. The number of

enemies (causing trouble) will correspond to the number of planets posited in the 6th House.

Rest of the related matters may be understood from the previous pages, (Ch. 30).

45 ABOUT THE 7th HOUSE. If Jupiter, Moon, Venus and Mercury be in the 7th, in any manner

(i.e. one of them, two, three, or all of them in the 7th), or other divisions falling in the 7th

House, or, if the 7th House be in aspect to these, one will procure a wife corresponding to the

planet/s and Rasi/s in question.

46. Should the 7th House contain malefics, or fall in malefic planets divisions, the wife of the

native will be destroyed (i.e. adversely affected). These results can be deduced from the

Ascendant and the Moon, the stronger of them having more significance. If the Moon be in

the 7th (from the Ascendant) along with Saturn, the native will marry a widow.

47. The number of wives will correspond to the number of heavenly bodies aspecting the 7th, or

the Navansas part in the 7th House. There will be a single wife, if Leo, Aries, or Scorpio rise in

Navansa, or, if Mercury and Jupiter join together in the 7th House.

48. If the 7th House has many divisions of Venus and the Moon, or is occupied by these two,

there will be plurality of wives. Specially Venus in the 7th will cause such an effect.

49. Jupiter and Venus related to the 7th House will confer a bride of the same caste, while the

Sun, Mars, Saturn and the Moon denote a female belonging to a mean order. As per

Ketumalacharya, Venus and Moon related to the 7th House will cause relationship with

whores.

50-51. Mars in the 7th House will make one go devoid of wife.

If he is, while so posited in aspect to only Saturn, the wife will certainly pass away.

Should Mars and Venus be together in the 7th, or 5th, or 9th, the native will beget a languid, or

deformed wife.

52. It is the unanimous opinion of all the sages, that, if the Moon and the Sun are, respectively, in

the 12th and the 6th, both the native and his wife will be one-eyed.

53. If Saturn occupies the Ascendant, while Venus is in the 7th identical with Ganda Rasi and the

5th is bereft to beneficial aspect, the person acquires a barren wife.

54-55. One will be devoid of a wife and an issue, if malefics occupy the Ascendant, 12th and 7th,

while decreasing Moon is in the 5th. Both the native and his wife will be immoral, if the 7th

House falls in the various divisions of Saturn and Mars, while Venus is posited in the 7th in

aspect to Mars and Saturn.

56. When the 7th House is occupied by Mercury and Venus, the native will be bereft of both wife

and progeny. If however this combination receives the aspect of a benefic, there will be

obtainment of a wife at an advanced age.

57. Should the Moon, along with even one of Mercury,

130

Jupiter and Venus, be in the 7th, the native will be opulent.

58. ABOUT THE 11TH HOUSE.

The native will gain through kings, wars, thieves, forests, quadrupeds etc., if the Sun is placed in

the 11th House, or, if the 11th House is aspected, or owned by the Sun.

59. Should the Moon be in the 11th House, or her division so related to the 11th House the native

will gain through females and through sales of elephants. If the Moon is declining, these are

not much, but an increasing Moon increases these gains greatly.

60. Mars, or his divisions related to the 11th House, as above denotes gains through gold, coral,

ornaments, ruby, money, valour, coming and going (i.e. travels), fire and weapons.

61. Should Mercury, or his divisions be related to the 11th,

as above, the native will gain by writing, arts, literature and arguments.

62. Jupiter, or his divisions so related to the 11th House

indicates gains through headship of a city, royal mercy, Sacrifices (religious), meritorious acts,

gold and horses.

63. When the planet Venus, or his divisions are so connected with the 11th House, one will gain

through connections with prostitutes, travels, pearls and silver.

64. Saturn, or his divisions so connected with the 11th House indicates gains through towns and

villages, acts of lasting nature, iron, donkeys and buffaloes.

65. The effects attributed above stand increased, if benefics aspect the 11th House, will decrease

by malefic influence and will remain mixed with the interference of both benefics and

malefics.

66. If the 11th House is aspected by (or associated with) all the planets, advent of wealth will be in

several ways. The strongest of those will have the highest influence.

67. A planet in its own Sign, or in a friendly Sign will give half of the effects attributed. These

effects are full, if it is in its exaltation Sign, very meagre, if it is combust and just one fourth, if

inimically placed.

68. The effects relating to the 11th House, as mentioned above will be experienced right from

birth, according to Yavanas. But according Lokaksha (a preceptor by that name), kings and

heads of zones stand to enjoy abundant gains (as against a common man).

69-70. ABOUT THE 12th HOUSE.

If the Sun, or weak Moon is placed in the 12th, the natives wealth will be lost to the king. Mars

posited in the 12th in aspect to Mercury, will cause losses in several ways Jupiter, the Moon

(with increasing rays) and Venus in the 12th will cause growth of wealth, provided there is no

aspect from Mars on them. Rest may be understood from the previous portion (Ch. 30).

71. MISCELLANEOUS MATTERS.

Even a person born in regal scion will become an artisan, if the Ascendant in Mercurys decanate

receives the aspect of the Moon from an Angle.

131

72. Should Venus be in the 12th House in Virgo

identical with Saturns Navansa, while the Luminaries are in the 7th in aspect to Saturn, the natives

mother though belonging to a noble race will become a slave.

73.Should Saturn occupy the 2nd House

counted from the Sun, while the Moon and Mars, respectively, are in the 10th cusp and 7th House

with reference to the Ascendant, the native will always be distressed.

74. The native will suffer from pulmonary and spleen disorders apart from tuberculosis, if the

Moon is hemmed between malefics, as Saturn occupies the 7th House.

75. Should there be an exchange between the Sun and the Moon in the Navansa, the native will

suffer from phlegmatic disorders. Should the Sun and the Moon be in one Rasi having

identical longitudes, the native will be emaciated at all times.

76. Should the 8th, 2nd, 6th and the 12th be, respectively, occupied by the Sun, Moon, Mars and

Saturn, the native will lose his eyes due to the affliction caused by the strongest of the tour.

77. If malefics occupy the 6th, 11th, 3rd and 5th, the native will suffer from ear defects, provided

there are no aspects from benefic planets. Malefics in the 7th un-aspected by benefics will

produce dental afflictions.

78. There will be diseases of the mind, if Saturn occupies the Ascendant, while Mars is in the 5th,

or the 9th. Alternatively, Saturn, while being in the Ascendant should be conjunct decreasing

Moon to cause the said effects.

Thus ends the 34th Ch. entitled DIFFERENT HOUSES AND WORLDLY AFFAIRS in Kalyana

Varmas SARAVALI.

Chapter 35.

Raja Yogas

1. This science is mainly useful to rulers. Hence I explain in this Ch. the configurations, that make

one a king.

2. KINGLY/WEALTHY YOGAS.

One born in a royal scion will become a ruler, if 3, or 4 planets, with strength, occupy their

exaltation/Mulatrikona Signs at birth. If 5, or 6 planets be so placed, even a person of mean

birth will attain rulership. If one, or two heavenly bodies be so, the native will only be rich,

being equal to a king, but not really be a king.

3. According to Yavanas, if only malefics are exalted , the native will become a king indulging, in

cruel deeds. But, as per Jeevasarma, such planets will make one valorous, but not a king.

132

One with such a Yoga (according to Kalyanavarma) will be honoured and will become the

head of a region.

4. Explained below are the Yogas, that will make even a person of base birth a king, according to

Shastras.

5. If all the four of the Sun, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter, or three of them, be exalted and one of

them be simultaneously in the Ascendant, a total of 16 kinds of Raja Yogas are formed. One

born even in a mean caste with such a Yoga will become a ruler. Again a different group of

16 Raja Yogas are formed, if one, or two out of the above four planets are in exaltation, while

one of the exalted planets occupies the Ascendant, as the Moon remains in Cancer.

According to great sages, these 32 Yogas will make one a ruler, who reigns the whole earth,

as though it is just a garden.

6. If at the time of birth either the Ascendant, or the Moon be in Vargottama Navansa and be in

aspect to 5, or 6 planets other than the Moon (when the Ascendant being considered) one

will become a king in spite of his having taken birth in a mean family.

7. If at birth Aries be the Ascendant containing the Moon, Mars and Jupiter one will become an

emperor of the whole earth encircled by the seas and the Udayagiri (i.e. the mountain, from

which the Sun etc. are supposed to rise) and will roaringly destroy his enemies.

8. Should Jupiter be in Cancer, while Mars occupies Aries identical with the Ascendant, or should

both Jupiter and Mars be in Aries Ascendant, the native will become a ruler whose enemies

dare not approach him, while his minister will be favourable to him.

9. Should the Moon be in the 11th House along with Venus and Jupiter, while Aries, Capricorn

and Virgo are occupied by their Lords, one born in Virgo Ascendant will doubtlessly become

a very knowledgeable king.

10. If Cancer Ascendant contain the Moon with full bright rays, while the 7th, 6th, 4th, 10th and 3rd

are, respectively, occupied by Mercury, Sun, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn, the native will

become a ruler. Simultaneously Mars should be conjunct Saturn.

11. Should Taurus ascend at birth with the Full Moon, as Aquarius, Leo and Scorpio are

tenanted, respectively, by Saturn, the Sun and Jupiter, the native will become a king with

abundant riches and with conveyances.

12. If Capricorn Ascendant birth along with Saturn, while Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius

are, respectively, occupied by the Moon, Mars, Mercury and Jupiter, one will become a ruler

equal to Indra, Lord of the Lords.

13. If the Moon is in Pisces identical with Ascendant, while Capricorn, Aquarius and Leo are in

their order occupied by Mars, Saturn and the Sun, one will become a ruler well versed in all

arts.

14. One will become an unconquerable king, with knowledge of the Vedas, if he takes birth in

Capricorn Ascendant with exalted Mars, if it opposed by Full Moon in Cancer.

133

15. If exalted Sun is in the Ascendant along with the Moon, the native will become a ruler, who

will be endowed with pleasing appearance and with whose very reminiscence the enemies

will shed tears and will sparkle fire of grief in their hearts.

16. Should Venus, Mars and Jupiter by respective]y placed in Aquarius, Aries and Cancer, one

born so will become a king spreading his fame to all the directions.

17. If the planet Jupiter, with the splendour of heated yellow metal, be in Cancer identical with

Ascendant, while the Sun is in the 10th in Aries and the Moon, Mercury and Venus are in

Taurus (in the 11th), one will conquer the entire earth with his own prowess.

18. The native will become a king, if the Moon occupies Sagittarius along with Jupiter, while Mars

occupies Capricorn and Mercury in Virgo in Ascendant.

19. If the Luminaries occupy the first half of Sagittarius, while Saturn is exalted, with exceeding

strength, in Libra Ascendant and Mars is in Capricorn, one will become a ruler whose valour

will provoke only honour from his foes.

20-21. CHANDRADHI YOGA. Adhi Yoga is caused by all benefics being in the 6th, 7th and 8th

from the Moon. These Houses should exclude the Sun and not receive any aspect from

malefics. One born with this Yoga will become a king possessing a kingdom boundaried by

seas whose band of intoxicated elephants will eke out ichor, which the black forest bees will

drink (mistaking the ichor to be flowers honey). Such a native will be immune to senescence

and sickness, be bereft of fear from enemies, be valorous, fortunate and happy.

22. Mercury in exaltation in the Ascendant, the Moon and Jupiter in Pisces, Mars and Saturn in

Capricorn, while Venus is in Gemini: this configuration will produce a ruler destroying his

enemies. The dust formed by the movements of his elephant Army will darken the entire

earth.

23. One will become a king with the following planetary configuration prevailing at the time of

birth: The Sun and Jupiter in Leo, Saturn in Aquarius, the Moon in Taurus, Mars in Scorpio

and the Ascendant in Aries.

24. A famous king will be produced, if Aries be the Ascendant at birth along with the Sun therein,

Jupiter be in Sagittarius and the Moon with Saturn is in Libra.

25. If the three planets, viz. Jupiter, Mercury and Venus occupy such Rasis, which are angular to

their respective own Rasis and be in the process conjunct Saturn, Mars and the Sun, while

the Moon is in Taurus, the native will become a king purifying the (four) directions with his

unstained fame. The native born in Aries Ascendant with the Sun in deep exaltation will rule

the earth boundaried by the seas.

26. Should the Moon be in the 4th House simultaneously falling in a watery Navansa and be with

all her splendour, while a benefic is in its own House identical with the Ascendant and

malefics are away from Angles, a king is born.

134

27. The Moon in the state of her Fullness, if be in aspect to Venus, Jupiter and Mercury, while the

Lord of the Ascendant is endowed with strength, one so born will become a king. The

Ascendant in question should be in a Dual Sign and be in Vargothamamsa.

28. The native, who has three, or four benefic planets in Vargothamamsa will become a king.

These planets should be in Angles, not combust, be not weak and be free from the company

of malefics.

29. Even, if a single benefic is in Vargothamamsa, the native will become a king, provided the

planet in question is strong and be in aspect to a friendly planet.

30. The Full Moon in Cancer Ascendant not falling in inimical subdivisions, will make one a king

endowed with gems elephants and horses, provided he has a benefics aspect, while all the

other planets occupy Seershodya Signs.

31. If the dispositor of the Moon is in the 3rd, 6th, 10th, or 11th counted from the Moon herself, one

born so will become a ruler comparable to Lord Indra provided malefics are bereft of strength

and benefics be in Angles identical with Rasis owned by benefics. Alternatively, these

benefics instead of falling in such Rasis may be in such Navansas ruled by benefics.

32. The native will become such a valorous king whose Armys very roaring will quake the earth, if

in his radix all planets, being strong, occupy their respective deep exaltation points in aspect

to friendly planets and without inimical aspects.

33. Should the Moon be in her deep exaltation degree in aspect to Venus, while all malefics are

relegated to 3rd, 6th, 9h and 12th Houses, one will become a king.

34. If the Ascendant Lord and the Moon Sign Lord are together in an Angle at birth, in aspect to

auspicious and friendly planets, unaspected by malefics and not being defeated by enemies,

the native will become a plentiful king. Alternatively the Moon should be in Lagna and the

Lagna Lord in the 9th thereof. The black forest bees consuming the ichor of his Army

elephants will sing the glory of such native in all directions.

35. Find out, if the Ascendant is the exaltation Sign of any planet. If the planet in question is

aspected by a benefic from an Angle a king is born. However, the first mentioned planet

should be in own Navansa, or friendly Navansa, or exaltation Navansa.

36. Saturn with strength, the Sun, Mars, the Moon, Venus and Mercury, respectively, positioned

in the second half of Capricorn, Leo, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Virgo will make one an

emperor, who will be endowed with spotless fame protecting his population.

37. If all the planets are in Vargothamamsa and are radiant the native will become an emperor of

the whole earth subduing all his enemies.

135

39. Should Jupiter and the Moon be in Taurus identical with the Ascendant, while its Lord

(Venus), is in his Moolatrikona (or in a Trine from the Ascendant) unaspected by the Sun,

Saturn and Mars, the native will be a famous ruler controlling all his foes.

40. If at birth all planets, avoiding inimical and debilitational divisions, occupy their own, or friendly

divisions in aspect to friendly planets, while the Moon is Full with her rays, the native will

become a ruler.

41. If the Full Moon is exalted and is in Vargothamamsa, in aspect to a benefic planet, the person

while the Moon occupies a watery Sign identical with a Trine, the native will become a king.

43. Should all the planets at birth be in their own Rasis and in friendly Navansas, or vice versa,

the subject will become an emperor.

44. Should all the other planets be in their deep exaltation points, while Mercury is in his

exaltation Amsa, the native will rule over the three worlds, receiving honours from Gods and

Demons.

45. One will become an emperor devoid of any foes, if the 4th, 1st, 7th and the 10th are,

respectively, occupied by Vasishta (one of the Saptharishis), Jupiter, Venus and Agasthya

(again one of the Saptharishis).

46. If the Full Moon is in her exaltation Rasi, or in own Rasi, or in own Navansa, while Jupiter

posited in an Angle is in aspect to Venus, the native becomes a great emperor provided the

Sun is in the Ascendant with strength identical with his own House.

47. Should the Full Moon receive the aspect of all the planets the native will live long and will not

be subjected to adverse results, that may be caused by Kemadruma and such other Yogas.

48. The Sun approaching his exaltation Sign (i.e. being in the end of Pisces), while Jupiter and

the Moon are in Cancer, the native will become a king endowed with various precious stones.

In this Yoga, the Sun should be simultaneously in a Trine from the Ascendant.

own Navansas, with strength, the native will become an emperor comparable to Yayati,

Sagara and Vena.

50. Should all the benefics with radiant rays occupy the Ascendant, being not combust and

unaccompanied by malefics, the native will become a ruler, who will take to penance in

forests and hills. The benefics in question should occupy the Rasi and Navansas of benefics.

51. If all benefic planets be in benefics Rasis identical with Panaphara Houses (i.e. 2nd, 5th, 8th

and 11th), while malefics occupy Dual Signs, the native so born will become a king, destroying

all his enemies and be equal to Brihaspati (Jupiter) in terms of intelligence.

136

52. If the Lord of the Ascendant is in the Ascendant itself, or is in a friendly Sign in aspect to a

friendly planet, the native will become a ruler, destroying his enemies, provided there is a

benefic in the Ascendant.

53. If the Full Moon is aspected by Jupiter and be unaspected by others, while there is no planet

in debilitation, the native will become a ruler. The said Moon should occupy Aries Navansa.

This Raja Yoga is conceived by Yavanas.

54. If the Full Moon occupies an Upachaya House, i.e. 3rd, 6th, 10th, or 11th in exclusive aspect to

Jupiter, while the Lord of the Moon Sign occupies the 10th, or 7th, the native will become a

ruler.

55. If the Full Moon be exalted and aspected by all the planets the native will become a famous

in fall in Rasi and be in their own Navansas, one will become a king with everlasting fame. In

this Yoga, Mars and Mercury should be in the 12th and, or the 3rd without combustion.

emperor endowed with physical splendour.

60. If the Moon is in a watery Sign/Navansa, while benefic is in the Ascendant and in his own

whose horses kicks will spread dust making even the brilliant sun in the sky look, like an early

mornings Moon.

62. If at birth all planets are endowed with roles of Yoga karaka, the native will become an

emperor. If one planet be so, he will rule a province.

63. Even, if one planet occupies its own Panchamsa, the subject will become a ruler. If all are

endowed with strength he becomes an emperor. Notes: Panchamsa division is a little bit

different from Trimsamsa. In odd Signs the Panchamsa (i.e. 6 degrees in length) rulerships

137

are in order: Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Mercury and Venus. The reverse holds good in the case

of even Signs.

64. If the Moon is aspected by Jupiter from Taurus, the native will rule over the entire earth.

65. If the Moon is aspected by any planet from its exaltation/Moolatrikona/own Sign, even a

simultaneously a benefic is endowed with strength, the native will become a great king.

67. Should the Sun be in his own Navansa, while the Moon is in Cancer Rasi, the native will

become a king, endowed with elephants.

68. Even a villager will become a king, if he has Saturn in the Ascendant and Jupiter in the 7th,

one of them being in aspect to Venus.

69. The native will doubtless become a king, if Venus rises in a Rasi of Jupiter in aspect to Jupiter

himself, while Mercury is in exaltation.

70. If the Sun, the Moon and Venus occupy one single House in exclusive aspect to Jupiter, the

native will become a ruler.

71. One will become a ruler, if Mars, Mercury and Venus are in the Ascendant, while both the

Moon and Jupiter are in the 7th in aspect to Saturn.

72. If strong Jupiter be in aspect to Mars, while the Sun is in the 10th in Aries, even a base person

will become a ruler. However, it is necessary, that the said Jupiter be in Aries Navansa, or in

Scorpio Navansa.

73. If the Moon, the Sun and Venus are in the 3rd House, while Mars and Jupiter are, respectively,

exalted, one will become a ruler of the earth. The benefic in question should fall in a friendly

Navansa also.

82. Should the Sun, the Moon, Mercury and Mars occupy the 10th House and also friendly

Navansas, while Venus is in the 9th House, the native will become a ruler, whose elephants

Chapter 36.

Planetary Rays

1. The rays possessed by a planet are important (in delineation of a horoscope) according to

Manindhacharya. I explain below the same.

2. When in exaltation, the number of rays possessed by the Sun are 10, the Moon 9, Mars 5,

Mercury 5, Jupiter 7, Venus 8 and Saturn 5.

3-4. ANOTHER SCHOOL OF THOUGHT.

The above view is held by Manindha, Maya and Badarayana, as enunciated by Mahendra

Shastra. However, according to another school of thought, all planets uniformly possess 7

rays each, while exaltation. While these two are authoritative schools, majority lean towards

equal distribution of 7 rays. All agree, that at debilitation, the figure is zero for each planet.

5. ABHIMUKHA AND PARANMUKHA RASMI.

When a debilitated planet transits towards its exaltation Sign, the rays are Abhimukha (i.e. facing

upwards) and, when an exalted planet goes towards its debilitation Sign, the rays are

Paranmukha (facing downwards). For the intermediary positions, the rays should be

calculated by rule of three process.

6. TO ARRIVE AT NUMBER OF RAYS.

Note the position of the planet in Rasis, degrees etc., for which the number of rays is to be

computed. Deduct from this its (deep) debilitation point. If the remainder is in excess of six

Signs, reduce it again from 12. Multiply the product by the maximum number of rays allotted

to the planet concerned and divide by six. The resultant figure will represent the number of

rays obtained by the planet by virtue of its position at birth.

7-9. RECTIFICATION OF RAYS.

If the planet is in the dwadasamsa of its friend, double the product, as obtained above. If it is in its

own dwadasamsa, own Rasi, retrogression/exaltation Sign the product should be trebled. If it

is in its enemys dwadasamsa, 1/16th of the rays will be lost. The same applies to a debilitated

planet. A combust planet, excepting Venus and Saturn, loses all the rays. A planet, that has

just begun to retrograde will have two-fold rays, while the one, that has just assumed direct

motion from retrogression will lose only 1/8th of the number of rays.

10-11. EFFECTS OF NUMBER OF RASMIS TOTALLY CONTRIBUTED BY THE SEVEN

PLANETS.

If the rays be a maximum of five, the native will be miserable, is of ignoble descent, will depend

on others, be indigent and will join base men, Should it be from 6 to 10, he will be a servant,

will be intent on going to places other than of his birth (for living), be devoid of good luck and

be dirty.

146

12-16. If the rays are between 11 and 15,

one will be, respectively, very learned, virtuous, righteous, beautiful and will possess merits due

to his descent. If the rays are between 16 and 20, he will be, respectively, supreme among

his men, be wealthy, be famous among men, be glorious and be honoured by his men. The

effects stated apply to the number of rays in the ascending order. If the rays are from 21 to 25

in number, the effects, respectively, are: honour, fortune, courage, scholarship and kingship.

26 rays denote a person, who will have all-round success in his efforts. 27 to 32 rays,

respectively, denote: a dependent on the king, wealth and gains through the king, minister

ship, honours from the king, royal patronage and rulership over fifty villages. 17-20. If the total

number of rays is 33, he will rule over 1000 villages, while with 34 rays he will obtain

leadership over 3000 villages. 35 rays denote abundant wealth, strength, provincial rulership,

fame, fortune etc. One will head over a lakh villages with 36 rays. Three lakh villages will

come under his control with 37/38 rays.

21-25. If the total rays be 39, he will become a ruler causing happiness to all. With 40 rays he will

rule over vast lands and the wives of the enemies crushed by him will reach their cries all

over, so that he will become prominent. One, two and three seas will be the

boundary/boundaries of the kingdom of the native/s with 41/42/43 rays. One with 44 rays will

be an emperor, will honour Gods and Brahmins, be long-lived and be mighty. According to

the rays crossing 44, one will rule over other islands, be free from obstacles, be honoured by

one and all and be equal to Indra in valour.

26. SPECIAL EFFECTS.

If the total rays are 45, or 46, the native will always enjoy auspicious effects and will lord over the

entire earth.

27. If the rays are 47, the native will undertake the responsibility of maintaining the whole earth,

be devoid of enemies, be an emperor akin to Indra and be honoured by all.

28-29. ABHIMUKHA AND PARANMUKHA.

If a planet has Abhimukha rays the good effects stated will increase, while Paranmukha rays will

reduce the good effects. More number of rays will multiply the results, while less number of

rays will diminish the effects. According to rays only, ones baseness, or excellence will come

to pass.

Thus ends the 36th Ch. entitled PLANETARY RAYS in Kalyana Varmas SARAVALI.

22. LUMINARIES IN MAHAPURUSHA YOGAS.

Though Mars etc. may be strong in the respective cases of Pancha Mahapurusha Yogas (vide

Sloka 2 of this Ch.), if the Sun and the Moon are weak, the person will not attain kinghood,

but in the period of the concerned planet will be endowed with children and wealth.

Thus ends the 38th Ch. entitled GUNA TATWA PHALA in Kalyana Varmas SARAVALI.

Chapter 39.

Obstructions To RajaYogas

1. Earlier, the Yogas of kinghood have been explained. There can be some factors, which prevent

the effects of such Yogas, which I explain in this Ch..

2. Out of Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and the Sun, if two, or more be in fall and one of them

simultaneously be in the Ascendant, as the Moon is in Scorpio, the RajaYogas will become

futile.

3. The RajaYogas in the horoscope are only name sake, if the Moon being weak is in the last

Navansa of a Movable Sign, or in the 8th Navansa of a Fixed Sign, or in the first Navansa of a

Common Sign and is without aspect from any other planet.

152

4. Same effects will come to pass, if all malefics occupy Angles identical with debilitation/inimical

Signs, while benefics are shunted to the 12th, 6th and 8th Houses.

5. If the Ascendant is in Vargottama position without aspect to any planet, the Raja Yogas will

only be a failure.

6. Even a hundred kingly Yogas will be of no avail, if Aquarius rises, while 3 heavenly bodies are

in their Signs of fall.

7. If there is no benefic in an Angle, or with the Moon, while 4 planets are either in fall, or in

combustion, or in inimical Signs, the RajaYogas are marred.

8. Should the Sun be in his own Navansa, while the Moon is in combustion and in aspect to

malefics without the aspect of benefics, the native will enjoy rulership (with the help of other

Raja Yogas) only to relinquish the kingdom soon and will become miserable.

9. Should the Moon lend her inimical aspect to the Ascendant Lord, while the Sun, Mars and

Saturn are in their order in the 3rd, 6th and 7th, the RajaYogas will become ineffective.

Benefics should in this case be not in Angles, but suffer combustion.

10. If five heavenly bodies are in fall at birth the RajaYogas will not come to pass.

11. If meteor, noise of contending winds in the sky (or earth quake, or thunder), Vyatipata, or

Upaketu be seen at the time of birth, the good RajaYogas stand nullified.

12. If Trisankhu Nakshatra (Trisankhu was a monarch of the solar race, who remained

suspended with his head towards the earth, as a constellation in the southern hemisphere)

rises at the time of ones birth, while the Ascendant is occupied by Saturn, as there is fall of a

comet, the Raja Yogas do not come to pass.

13. If the planets capable of causing Raja Yoga are inclined to enter in war, or are becoming

splendourless, or about to lose their strength, the Raja Yogas will stand cancelled.

14. If weak Moon is in her deep degree of debilitation the Raja Yogas get destroyed, just as a

king going against an astrologer.

15. The Sun in the 10th degree of Libra will destroy all Raja Yogas, just as miserliness eclipses all

the good attributes of a person.

16. This Sloka is repeated in the original. The meaning is identical with that of Sloka 15 above.

17. Even though other planets may be in their Mulatrikona, exaltation, or own Signs, while the

Sun is singly in deep fall, the Raja Yogas will be unavailable.

18. If Jupiter occupies Capricorn, as Ascendant, while the Moon is not in Cancer, the native will

become miserable, just as a penniless lewdster in the place of a courtesan.

19. If in the formation of Kemadruma Yoga, the Moon is without the aspect of another planet, the

Raja Yogas lose their existence and the native will be devoid of good conduct.

20. If 3, or more planets be in fall even the son of an emperor ruling over the entire earth will take

to begging, be miserable, be dirty and penniless.

153

21. If 5 planets occupy inimical Signs, or are in combustion, while the Sun, or the Moon is not in

exaltation, the kingly Yogas will become ineffective.

22. If Venus occupy his debilitation Navansa, even a vast kingdom is deprived from the native.

23. RajaYogas have been explained earlier. The combinations marring such kingly states are

given in this Ch.. The stronger one of these two will only prevail.

24. RAJA YOGA.

The Sun in Virgo, Mars in Scorpio along with Jupiter, as the Moon is in Aries: this configuration

will produce a king the dust of whose elephants will darken the-skies.

Thus ends the 39th Ch. entitled OBSTRUCTIONS TO RAJAYOGAS In Kalyana Varmas

SARAVALI.

Chapter 40.

Calculation of Longevity

1. The people all over remain perplexed over the question of longevity. So I narrate the relative

principles based on the Shastras here under.

2-3. SELECTION OF SYSTEM FOR LONGEVITY COMPUTATION. Out of the triothe Sun, the

Moon and the Ascendant, if the Ascendant is the strongest, Amsayurdaya should be resorted

to. Pindayu is the best, if the Sun is predominant, while Nisargayu is the apt choice with

Moon prevailing. If the three in question are bereft of strength, then Jeevasarmas system can

be used.

4. AMSAYURDAYA CALCULATIONS.

The longitudes (counted from Aries first point) of the (seven) planets and the Ascendant should

be divided by 200 to get the number of years. The quotients in later processes should be

multiplied by the respective multipliers to get months, days and Ghatis.

5. ADDITIONS FOR ASCENDANTS CONTRIBUTION.

If the Ascendant is strong the number of years equal to the Rasis it has traversed should be

added. Months etc. thereof should be guessed by rule of three method.

6.RECTIFICATIONS FOR PLANETARY CONTRIBUTIONS.

The contribution made by a planet, that is in Vargothama, own Sign, own decanate, or own

Navansa should be doubled. If it is retrograde, or in exaltation the figure should be trebled.

7. If a planets contribution gets doubled by virtue of position in own Sign, own decanate etc. (as

per Sloka 6 above) and further warrants trebling by virtue of retrogression/exaltation, the

trebling should also be done. So say the learned.

154

8. According to Chudamani Acharya, if a planet is in Angle contributions by each rectification shall

be considered. If it is in Panaphara (2nd, 5th, 8th and 11th) only two multiplications be done. If it

is in Apoklima (3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th) only one (i.e. the highest) should be taken.

9. According to Varaha Mihira, if many multiplications are warranted, only the highest be

considered. But this view is not acceptable to ancestors.

10. REDUCTIONS FOR AMSAYURDAYA CONTRIBUTIONS.

If a planet is in its inimical Sign, a third of the earlier (final) figure should only be taken. If it is

combust in the Sun, only half need be computed. The contributions by Venus and Saturn do

not suffer reductions on account of their combustion.

11-12. VYAYADI (CHAKRARDHA) HARANA.

A malefic in the 12th loses all his contribution. If in the 11th half, in the 10th a third, in the 9th a

fourth, in the 8th one fifth and in the 7th one sixth of the contribution suffers. Benefics in these

places lose just half of what malefics lose. Further, if there are two, or more planets in one

and the same House, only the strongest suffers reduction.

13-15. PINDAYU.

In this system the planets from the Sun onwards through Saturn contribute, respectively, 19, 25,

15, 12, 15, 21 and 20 in their order, when they are in (deep) exaltation. From the longitude of

the planet (for which the contribution is being computed) deduct its highest exaltation degree

(counted from Aries first point). In case the minuend is greater than the subtrahend, then

increase the former by 12 Signs i.e. 360 degrees). Multiply the latest product by the number

of years allotted for the planet and divide by 12 to get years. Dividers for months equal to

Amsas (or degrees i e. 30) and for days Vikalas (i.e. 60).

16. In the case of Pindayurdaya also the same multiplications and rectifications apply. Leaving

aside a retrograde planet, one in inimical Sign loses a third, while the one in fall retains only

half of the contribution. The planet in exaltation retains the entire contribution.

17.ASCENDANTAL CONTRIBUTION IN PINDAYURDAYA.

If the Navansa Lagna Lord is strong, then the years contributed will equal the Navansas past, If,

however, the Lagna Rasi Lord is stronger, then the Rasis past up to Lagna (counted from

Aries) will be the number of years.

18-19. REDUCTION FOR RISING PLANETS.

If malefics occupy the Ascendant, convert the Ascendant into degrees, minutes etc. Multiply this

by the number of years contributed by the malefics in question. Then divide the product by

21,600. Respective products should be reduced from the earlier contributions of each of the

malefics occupying the Ascendant. (This will be the net contribution by each malefic in case

he occupies the Ascendant). If the malefics in Ascendant are aspected by the benefics suffice

it to say half of the reduction need only be done.

20. NISARGA YURDAYA.

155

In the Nisargayu scheme, the planets from the Sun to Saturn contribute 20, 1, 2, 9, 18, 20 and 50,

respectively.

21. FULL SPAN OF LIFE.

The full span of life (120 years and 5 days) will be enjoyed by the native, who has Pisces

Ascendant with its 9th Navansa and Mercury in 25 degrees of Taurus, while others are in their

deep exaltation points.

22. UNLIMITED LONGEVITY.

Jupiter along with the Moon in Cancer identical with the Ascendant, Mercury with Venus in an

Angle (or separately in Angles), while the rest are in the 3rd, 6th and 11th: One with this

combination will enjoy a limitless life span.

23-24. SPAN OF FULL LIFE FOR VARIOUS ANIMALS.

The full span of life of elephants and men are 120 years and 5 days. For horses it is 32 years, for

goats etc. 16 years, for camels and donkeys 25 years, for cows and buffaloes 24 years and

for dogs 12 years. Just as for the mankind, the longevity for the various animals can be

computed. The computations should be done, as explained supra, multiplied by the figure

representing full life span and divided by 120.

25. Only those, who consume wholesome diet, those, who are virtuous, those, who have good

conduct and those, who conquer their senses will enjoy the longevity, as laid down by the

sages.

Thus ends the 40th Ch. entitled LONGEVITY CALCULATION in Kalyana Varmas SARAVALI.

Chapter 41.

Moola Dasa

1. The Dasa duration of a planet is equal to the number of years it contributes (as per Moola

Dasa scheme). All planets yield in their Dasas pleasant, or unpleasant results according to

their (natal) dispositions.

2. ORDER OF THE SCHEME.

According to Manitha, those, who are born during day time will have the Dasas commencing with

that of the Sun, while the night-born will have it from that of Venus. But this view is not

acceptable to other preceptors.

3. SATYAS VIEW.

The first Dasa will be of the strongest of the Ascendant, the Sun and the Moon followed by the

ones in Angle, Panaphara and Apoklima. This is the view held by Satyacharya.

156

4-5. The first Dasa will be of the strongest of the Ascendant, the Sun and the Moon. Then the

planets in Angles will be Dasa Lords. Thereafter the planets in Panapharas (2nd, 5th, 8th and

11th Houses) will lord over the major periods, while the last Dasas will be headed by the

planets posited in Apoklimas (3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th Houses). If Angles etc. are occupied by

more than one planet, the strongest will have its Dasa first. Even, if the strengths of these be

identical, then the order will be according to maximum years donated by these planets

Granting, that these durations are also similar, then the risings of planets will prevail, Even, if

one of the triad, viz. the Ascendant, the Sun and the Moon, is strong, then Satyas scheme, as

above should be resorted to. If none is strong enough, then the Dasa scheme of other

preceptors may be considered.

6. AUSPICIOUS PERIODS.

Planets in exaltation, own Rasi, own Navansa, friendly Sign, possessing full rays and those with

full strength prove auspicious in their Dasas. At the commencement of a Dasa a planet, that

is strong, or is in a friendly division, or is in aspect to a benefic will also yield similar good

results.

7. INAUSPICIOUS PERIODS.

The planet, that is in its Sign of fall, Sign ruled by an enemy, Navansa of an enemy, combust in

the Sun, devoid of splendour, or is in aspect to malefics will yield inauspicious effects in its

Dasa.

8. If a planet has departed from its exaltation, its Dasa is known, as Avarohini (stepping down)

Dasa. If, however, it is in own, or friendly divisions, the effects will be medium, i.e. neither

good nor bad. The Dasa of a planet approaching its exaltation, departing from debilitation, is

known, as Arohini (climbing) Dasa. If the said planet is in inimical, or debilitation divisions, it

will inflict difficulties.

9. The Sun is the ripener (or baker) of the effects of a Dasa, while the Moon is the sustaining

agent. That is why the Moons transit position at the time of the commencement of a Dasa

should be duly considered.

10-14. EFFECTS OF THE MOON.

If the Moon at the commencement of a Moola Dasa is in Virgo, the native throughout the period

will be related to courtesans and be associated with them. This view is held by Yavanas. If

she is in Cancer at the beginning of Dasa, the native will gain wealth through virtuous ladies.

If in Aries, or in Scorpio he will injure the honour of virgins and also bring evils to his own

female. If the Sign in question be of Mercury knowledge of Shastras and acquisition of friends

will come to pass. In a Sign of Venus, it brings plenty of food and drinks, happiness and

destruction of enemies. In a House of Jupiter, it brings happiness, wealth, honour and

commandability. Saturns Sign endows with association with old ladies. Leo denotes

157

movements in forts and forests, agriculture and misunderstanding with wife and children.

These are the effects accruing out of the Moons placement at the commencement of a Dasa.

15. ASPECTS TO MOON AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF A DASA. If the Moon at the

commencement of a Dasa receives the aspect of Mars, or Saturn there will be loss of

relatives and of wealth followed by diseases. Mercurys aspect confers learning, while the

aspects of other planets will give effects according to their nature.

16. MAJOR LORDS PLACEMENT AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF A DASA. If the Lord of the

Dasa is in the Ascendant prevailing at the moment the Dasa begins, or in the 3rd, 6th, 10th, or

11th from the said Ascendant, the Dasa then proves excellent.

17-18. AGAIN MOONS PLACEMENT.

If the Moon at the commencement of a major period occupy a friendly Sign, exaltation Sign, or an

Upachaya House (3rd, 6th, 10th, or 11th House), 5th, 9th, or 7th counted from the major Lord,

good effects will come to pass in the Dasa in question. If the Moon is otherwise placed, even

a planet in exaltation at birth will give inauspicious results in its Dasa.

19. SPECIAL EFFECTS BASED ON NAVANSA.

Even though a planet may be in friendly Sign, if it occupies simultaneously a Navansa belonging

to its enemy, or be in fall in Navansa, the effects in the Dasa concerned will be mixed. A

weak planets Dasa will be futile.

20. LAGNA DASA. The Ascendants major period will prove auspicious, if it is in the first decanate

of a Movable Sign; medium in the second decanate and poor in the 3rd decanate. The reverse

is true with a Common Sign ascending, i e. third, second and first decanate will, respectively,

be auspicious, medium and poor. As for a Fixed Sign ascending first, second and third

decanates will, respectively, give poor, auspicious and medium effects.

21. NAISARGIKA DASA. The Naisargika Dasa follows in the order of the Moon, Mars, Mercury,

Venus, Jupiter, the Sun, Saturn and the Ascendant.

22-24. If the planet is exalted, or is endowed with temporal strength, or full strength, in its Dasa

incomparably auspicious results will come to pass. The planet, that is in its own Sign,

Moolatrikona Sign, own Navansa, or hemmed between benefics will yield moderately

auspicious effects. The planet, that is going towards its exaltation (departing from Sign of its

fall), or is placed in friendly Signs etc., feebly auspicious effects will be felt. Similar deductions

should be made in regard to planets otherwise placed.

25-26. EFFECTS OF FAVOURABLE SUN’S DASA.

If the Sun is favourable, in his Dasa, there will be gains from forests, medicines, travels, poison,

evil friendship, forests, ivory, skin, fire and royal association. Courage, diligence, intelligence,

fame and valour will be on the increase. Excellence and kingship will be achieved by the

native.

27-28. EFFECTS OF ADVERSE SUN’S DASA.

158

If the Sun is adverse, in his Dasa there will be grief on account of servants, wealth, theft, eyes,

weapons, fire, water and king and the native will be tormented by children, wife and relatives

He will be interested in sinful acts and be troubled by hunger, thirst (or morbid fever), heart

ailments, bilious diseases and bodily damages.

29-30?. EFFECTS OF FAVOURABLE MOON’S DASA.

If the Moon is favourable, in her Dasa there will be gains through female association, soft

disposition, journey, water, ice, milk, juice, jaggery, sugar, sports, initiation into Mantras

through Brahmins, flowers, robes, sweet food etc. He will achieve success in his

undertakings out of his intelligence, will receive honours from elders and the king and will be

endowed with increased courage and wisdom.

31-32. EFFECTS OF ADVERSE MOON’S DASA.

If the Moon is evil, in her Dasa there will be fear in family, misunderstanding with ones family

members, difficulties, loss of wealth, enmity with royal assembly, sleep, indolence, evils

through women and grief.

33-34. EFFECTS OF FAVOURABLE MARS’ DASA.

During the Dasa of favourable Mars, one will gain through kings, fire, thieves, enemies, snakes,

poison, weapons, confinements, fictitious articles, lands, goats, buffaloes, copper, gold,

prostitutes, gambling, intoxicants, pungent articles/juices, wealth and grains.

35-36 EFFECTS OF ADVERSE MARS’ DASA.

During the Dasa of evil Mars, there will be enmity with friends, wife, children and brothers,

sufferance from thirst, swooning, bloody defects, loss of limbs and wounds. There will be

attachment to others wives and irreligious acts, followed by aversion to elders and to truth.

Bilious excesses will trouble the subject.

37-39. EFFECTS OF FAVOURABLE MERCURY’S DASA.

In the Dasa of favourable Mercury, there will be gains via friends, children, wealth, king,

businessmen, priests, gambling etc. The native will acquire horses, lands, gold, fame,

ambassadorship, limitless happiness, fortunes, high intelligence, fame, success in religious

activities, fond of amusement, destruction of foes and enthusiasm in mathematics and

drawings.

40. EFFECTS OF ADVERSE MERCURY’S DASA.

If Mercury is evil, in the concerned Dasa the native will be tormented by imbalances of the three

temperaments (viz. bile, phlegm and wind), hard disposition, imprisonment, mental grief and

excitement.

41-43. EFFECTS OF FAVOURABLE JUPITER’S DASA.

If Jupiter is favourable, the native in that Dasa will gain through ministers (or advisers), kings,

dances and statesmanship. He will gain honours, virtues, courage, wide friend ship, life

159

partner, gold, quadrupeds, conveyances, auspicious acts, destruction of enemies, royal

acquaintance and will obtain wealth through public, king, businessmen and elders.

44. EFFECTS OF ADVERSE JUPITERS DASA.

If Jupiter be inauspicious one will in such Dasa have physical defects, excessive grief, lameness,

diseases of the stomach and ears, loss of semen and marrow and fear from kings.

45-46. EFFECTS OF FAVOURABLE VENUS DASA.

If Venus is auspicious one will in the Dasa be successful and will gain lands, residences, bed

comforts, wife, garlands, robes, good food, fame, happiness and treasure. He will have liking

for music, will develop acquaintance with females, will gain through kings and lands, will

derive wisdom, desired happiness and friends and gains through articles used for sexual

enjoyments.

47. EFFECTS OF UNFAVORABLE VENUS DASA.

If Venus is inauspicious the native will in the Dasa have litigations with virtuous people, will have

troubles from conveyances, furniture, females and kings and will develop intimacy with

unsocial elements.

48-49. EFFECTS OF FAVOURABLE SATURNS DASA.

If Saturn is favourable in his Dasa the native will gain camels, asses etc., association with

unchaste, or old ladies, gain through pulses, sesamum and grains eaten by poor people,

leadership over villages and iron etc. His people will acquire a permanent position.

50-51. EFFECTS OF ADVERSE SATURNS DASA.

If Saturn is adverse, there will be loss of conveyances, excitement, enmity, separation from wife

and other family members, loss in battles, liking for intoxicants and gambling, windy diseases,

loss of meritorious acts, confinement, lassitude, affliction to limbs and enmity with children

and servants.

52.The good and bad effects for the Dasas have been explained above in a general manner.

Narrated below are the effects arising out of special considerations.

53. SUNS DASA. There are five kinds of placements, which enable us to derive five different

types of Suns Dasa. These positions are: exaltation, fall, Moolatrikona, Angle and enemys

Sign.

54-59. The Sun in Ascendant gives kingdom during his Dasa; while posited in other Kendras

ruled by inimical planets there will be disorders of hip, throat and eyes. Debilitated Sun in his

Dasa causes destruction of eyes, fever and head disorders, confinement, leprosy and other

disorders. If the Sun is exalted, there will be gain of kingdom with royal insignia in such Dasa.

Apart, there will be acquisition of elephants, steeds etc. The Dasa of the Sun placed in his

Moolatrikona will indicate destruction of all kinds of miseries and leadership of large

provinces. In the Dasa of the Sun placed in inimical Sign, one will incur affliction of eyes,

hump-back, disorders caused by fire, facial diseases and humiliation due to misconduct. The

160

8th House placement of the Sun will cause in his Dasa affliction to the entire body and

wanderings in various countries.

60-65. MOONS DASA. The Moons Dasa is generally differentiated in six categories, viz. exalted,

debilitated, friendly Sign, inimical Sign and diminishing and increasing Moons Dasas. The

different dignities of the Moon give following results in the Dasa concerned: exalted kingdom,

debilitated death, inimical Sign confinement, friendly Sign association with own men,

decreasing Moon fever and disorders of abdomen, head and eyes. If the Moon is full and is

endowed with strength, in such Dasa the native will be surrounded by thousands of superior

females. If she be relegated to the 8th House, the native in such Dasa will be humiliated by his

own men, will live through machinery, grass, firewood, cowdung, bamboo, medicinal plants,

fruits and water. He will acquire only deteriorated food and rags and even a king will have to

resort to servitude.

66-68. OTHER PLACEMENT OF PLANETS.

Those exalted in the Ascendant confer rulership of a province in their Dasas, while those in

exaltation in other Angles will bestow, wealth, conveyances and rulership of a country. If a

planet is in the 6th, the native will be subjected to evils, misfortunes etc. In the Dasa of a

planet placed in the 8th, death will be inflicted. There will only be confinement in the Dasa of a

combust planet. The Dasa of a retrograde planet will cause wanderings, like that of a wheel,

evils and enmity. This applies only to malefics in retrogression, but not to benefics.

69. Though one may be a king, he will become a servant of his own servants in the Dasas of a

planet devoid of strength, a planet totally devoid of strength, a planet in fall, a planet in deep

fall, a planet in inimical Sign and a planet in dead enemys.

70. In the Dasa of a planet placed in enemys Sign, there will be circumstances to leave ones own

country (in distress), diseases, loss of position, frequent quarrels and confinement.

71. Even a king with vast number of elephants, that can wet the earth with their ichors, will surely

wander in difficulty in the Dasa of a planet occupying an inimical Sign.

72-73. In the Dasas of the planets placed in the 6th, 5th, 9th, or 7th Houses identical with inimical

Signs, there will be troubles to limbs and secondary limbs (like the nose), while the Dasa of

the planet in the 8th House identical with its inimical House will cause beheading (or afflictions

to head), fear from enemies, wanderings in foreign places, troubles of confinement, diseases

etc. If the Dasa of a planet, that is in fall be in operation humiliation from royal sources will

follow.

74. The Native will derive (good) effects of a weak planets Dasa in dreams and thoughts. The

effects due to Pancha Maha Purusha Yogas will come to pass in the Dasas of the concerned

planets.

75. The planets in Seershodaya Signs will give their effects in the beginning of the Dasas; those

in Ubhayodaya will give in the middle of the Dasas effects due to them and those in

161

Prishtodaya Signs as well, as those in fall will reveal their effects in the concluding parts of

their Dasas.

Thus ends the 41st Ch. entitled MOOLA DASA in Kalyana Varmas SARAVALI.

Chapter 42.

Effects Of Sub Periods

1. DISTRIBUTION OF SUB PERIODS TO PLANETS IN MOOLA DASA. A planet, that is conjunct

the Dasa Lord will sub rule half of the period. The sub rulership further goes to planets, as

under: one third to that in the 5th/9th from the Dasa Lord; one seventh to that in the 7th from

the Dasa Lord and one fourth to that in the 4th/8th with reference to Dasa Lord.

2-3. The sub-Lords will ripen the sub-period effects according to their own nature. Should there

be more than one planet in the Houses specified above, the strongest of them will rule over

the sub period (and not others). The sub periods of benefics will yield benefic results, while

those of malefics will give inauspicious effects. According to some authorities, planets in

Angles will first lord over the sub-periods followed by those in Panaphara (2nd, 5th, 8th and

11th) and Apoklima (3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th)

4. According to Satyacharya, the sub periods will rule according to the orders of strength in case

there is more than one planet in one House.

5. Take the fractions (as mentioned in Sloka 1) and reduce them to equivalent fractions with a

common denominator. Add up the aliquot parts of the Dasa representative of the various

numerators leaving out the denominators. The sub periods will be arrived at, when the

various aliquots are converted into years within the main Dasa and divided by a common

factor.

6-7. Planets, that are conjunct the major Lord will cause confinement and loss of wealth in their

sub periods. If, however, the major Lord is in an Angle, or in a Trine from the Ascendant,

there will be great happiness. If a planet conjunct 2, or more planets be in an inimical House,

in such sub period, only diseases, evils, quarrels and royal displeasures will come to pass.

8. In the sub period of a planet in the 7th from the Mooladasa Lord, death of wife, or the wifes

becoming a servant of an enemy, or getting attached to another man is denoted.

9-10. Death, destruction of wealth, or imprisonment will result in the sub period of the planet in

the 8th from the Moola Dasa Lord. If 2, or 3, or 4 malefics join in one House other than an

Angle, or a Trine, imprisonment, destruction and poverty will be the order of the sub period.

Chapter 44.

Antidotes For Evils Of Dasas

1-3. If at the time of commencement of a Dasa, even, if one planet occupies the divisions of a

benefic, or of an intimate friend and is aspected by a benefic, the evils due to come out of the

said Dasa will disappear. If the Lord of the Dasa is not strong enough to cause evil, while the

planet functioning, as an antidote (as stated in the previous Sloka) is stronger, the evils are

then surely destroyed. Even, if a single planet occupies its exaltation Sign, Moolatrikona Sign,

or own Sign and is aspected by a benefic, or is conjunct a benefic, at the start of a Dasa the

evils of the Dasa are nullified.

Thus ends the 44th Ch. entitled ANTIDOTES FOR EVILS OF DASAS in Kalyana Varmas

Chapter 46.

Female Horoscopy

l. Whatever horoscopic effects have been stated for males are equally applicable to females too.

Explained in this Ch. are rules peculiar to the fair sex.

2. IMPORTANT HOUSES.

From the 8th House, her widowhood can be deduced, while the Ascendant deals with her

physique, the 7th House with her husbands good fortunes and the 5th House with her

offspring.

3-4. THE MOON AND ASCENDANT.

If the Moon and the Ascendant are both disposed in even Signs, the female will be virtuous and

extremely good-looking. Should these two be in aspect to auspicious planets, she will be

endowed with ornaments and virtues. In case these two occupy odd Signs, she will be akin to

a male in appearance and in disposition. With these two receiving aspects of malefics, she

will be sinful and bereft of virtues.

5. TRIMSAMSA POSITIONS.

Note the stronger of the Moon and the Ascendant. Whoever of the two is placed in the

Trimsamsa of Mars, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, or Saturn, such effects will come to pass, (as

detailed below).

171

6-10?. EFFECTS OF THE MOON/ASCENDANT IN VARIOUS TRIMSAMSAS. If it is a Sign

owned by Mars, the Trimsamsa of Mars denotes a harlot, that of Venus a female devoid of

virtuous history, that of Mercury one with cunning disposition, that of Jupiter a chaste lady

and that of Saturn one in servitude. Should a Sign of Mercury house the Moon/the Ascendant

in the Trimsamsa of Mars, the female will be cunning, in the Trimsamsa of Venus one with

high degree of lust, in the Trimsamsa of Mercury a chaste girl, in the Trimsamsa of Jupiter a

virtuous housewife and in that of Saturn impotent. If it is a Sign of Venus, the Trimsamsa of

Mars denotes a female with wicked nature, Venusian Trimsamsa one with fame for her

virtues, Mercurial Trimsamsa skilful, Jupiterian Trimsamsa a virtuous female and Saturns

Trimsamsa a woman given in marriage, as a second wife. In the Sign owned by the Moon the

Trimsamsa of Mars bestows her freedom not due to a housewife, Venusian Trimsamsa will

make her unchaste, Mercurial Trimsamsa will bestow skill in arts, Jupiterian Trimsamsa will

make her quite virtuous and in Saturns Trimsamsa she will betray her husband. In Leo the

Trimsamsa of Mars will make the female garrulous, Venusian Trimsamsa chaste, Mercurial

Trimsamsa male-natured, Jupiterian Trimsamsa a queen and Saturn s Trimsamsa fallen.

11-13. TRIMSAMSA EFFECTS (continued).

In a Sign of Jupiter the Trimsamsa of Mars will make her a gentlewoman with many (of the seven

principal) virtues, the Trimsamsa of Venus a female with evil speech, the Trimsamsa of

Mercury one with knowledge, the Trimsamsa of Jupiter one with many virtues and the

Trimsamsa of Saturn a female desiring limited physical union. Lastly in a Sign owned by

Saturn, a Trimsamsa of Mars will make one servant, that of Venus intelligent, that of Mercury

cruel and devoid of conduct, that of Jupiter a chaste lady and that of Saturn himself one

addicted to base men.

14. BEASTLY LUST OF A FEMALE.

When Venus and Saturn are in mutual aspects in the case of a birth in Taurus, or Libra

Ascendant with Saturns Navansa, the female concerned burnt with sexual lust will unite with

a woman playing the role of a male. Venus and Saturn should simultaneously be in exchange

in Navansas owned by them.

15-17. THE 7th HOUSE.

Should the 7th House be vacant, her husband will be a contemptible fellow. With the said House

bereft of aspect of a benefic, he will be bereft of strength. He will be disposed to living in other

places, if the 7th House is a Movable Sign. He will be a eunuch with Mercury, or Saturn in the

7th House. She will be discarded by her husband, if the Sun is in her 7th House. Mars in the

said House will cause early widowhood, while Saturn in the 7th with malefic aspects will make

her old soon. Again she will be given up by her husband with malefics being weak and

combust in the 7th receiving aspects from malefics. Benefics and malefics combust in the 7th

will give away the woman native in second marriage.

172

18. UNCHASTITY.

If Venus and Mars exchange their divisions, the female will go after other males. If the Moon be

simultaneously in the 7th House, she will join others with consent of her husband.

19. MOTHER AND DAUGHTER.

If a Sign of Mars, or Saturn be ascending with Venus and the Moon in it in aspect to malefics, the

female along with her mother may be deemed unchaste.

20. MISCELLANEOUS.

If the 7th House falls in a Navansa of Mars and be in aspect to the Moon (Saturn, according to

some texts), the female will have a diseased vagina. A Navansa of Venus denotes a

fortunate female, who will be dear to her husband.

21-24. EFFECTS OF RULERS OF 7th HOUSE/NAVANSA.

If the 7th House, or its Navansa be ruled by Saturn, the females husband will be old and foolish.

The ruler ship of Mars in such a case will give a husband, who will be addicted to other

women and be irascible. If Venus heads the 7th House, or its Navansa the husband will be

very beautiful and be fortunate. The husband will be skilful and knowledgeable, if Mercury be

such a planet. A sexually tormented husband, who will, however, be soft in disposition will be

bestowed by the Moon in such circumstances. The husband will be virtuous and be a

conqueror of the five senses, if Jupiter rules the 7th House, or its Navansa. Leo, as the 7th

House, or the 7th Navansa will indicate an industrious and a very intelligent husband. Thus

the effects relating to the rulership of the 7th House and 7th Navansa be declared in respect of

males.

25-26. EFFECTS OF PLANETS IN THE ASCENDANT.

She will be jealously disposed and be happy with Venus and the Moon in the Ascendant. Mercury

replacing Venus in the said Yoga will make the female happy, skilful in arts, virtuous and

modest. If Mercury and Venus are together in the Ascendant, the female will be beautiful,

fortunate and skilful in arts. Benefics in the Ascendant will endow a female with servants,

happiness and robes, while malefics give adverse effects in regard to these.

27. EFFECTS OF THE 8th HOUSE.

Malefics in the 8th will cause widowhood. This will occur in the Dasa periods of the Lord of the

Navansa occupied by the 8th Lord. A benefic in the 2nd will, however, cause the females death

in this Yoga, instead of widowhood.

28. LIMITED PROGENY.

If the 5th House be one of Virgo, Scorpio, Taurus and Leo receiving the aspect of a benefic, there

will be limited number of children Alternatively, the said 5th House may be conjunct a benefic,

or the Moon.

29. FEMALE WITH MASCULINE DISPOSITION.

173

Should Mercury, Venus and the Moon be in the Ascendant and be weak, while Saturn has

moderate strength, as the rest are strong, the female concerned will be akin to a male in

appearance and in acts. The Ascendant should in this case necessarily be an odd Sign.

30. TAKING TO RELIGIOUS ORDER.

A female will be initiated into a religious order, if a malefic is in the 7th House, while the 9th House

is occupied by any planet. The order will relate to the planet in the 7th House.

31. VEDIC EXPONENT.

If strong Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, or the Moon be in the Ascendant identical with an even Sign,

the female will be a teacher/exponent of Vedas (or be a follower of Vedanta Philosophy). And

she will be an expert in interpretation of various Shastras.

32. APPLICATION.

Whatever has been stated in this Ch. should be wisely applied to females relating to their births,

selection of grooms, marriage and query. These effects are applicable to their husbands also.

Thus ends the 46th Ch. entitled FEMALE HOROSCOPY in Kalyana Varmas SARAVALI.

Chapter 47.

Aphorisms of Death

1.REASONS OF DEATH.

If the 8th House is occupied by any planet from the Sun to Saturn, the reason for death in the

same order will be fire, water, weapon, fever, indigestion (or constipation), thirst and hunger.

According to the 8th House being a Movable, Fixed, or Dual Sign, the place of death will be a

foreign place, own place, or on the way.

2. Death may be due to the imbalance of that humour belonging to the planet aspecting the 8th

House. If there is no planet in the 8th House, the aspecting one may indicate the kind of

death. If many are thus related, the strongest one will prevail.

3. DEATH BY DROWNING, FALL ETC.

If the 10th and 4th are occupied by the Sun and Mars, the native will die due to fall from hills. If the

10th, 7th and 4th Houses are occupied by Mars, Mercury and Saturn, it may be due to fall in a

well. Death due to imprisonment will follow, if the Luminaries are placed in Virgo in aspect to

malefics. The end will be by drowning, if Pisces is occupied by the Sun and the Moon.

4-5. DEATH BY FIRE ETC.

If the Moon and Saturn, respectively, are in Capricorn and Cancer, death will be due to affliction

of stomach. If the Moon be hemmed between malefics and occupies a Sign of Mars,

174

fire/weapons will cause death. Death will be certainly inflicted by dryness of blood, if the

Moon is in Virgo hemmed between malefics.

6-7. DEATH BY HANGING ETC.

If the Moon in Capricorn, or Aquarius be hemmed between benefics, death will be due to

hanging, fire, or fall, which is doubtless according to Chanakya. The same effect will come to

pass, if the 5th and 9th Houses are occupied by malefics in aspect to malefics. If the drekkana

of the 8th House be one of Pasa, Sarpa and Nigala, death will be reticent.

8. DEATH DUE TO A FEMALE.

If the Sun be in Pisces Ascendant, while the Moon is in the 7th (in Virgo), or in the 2nd in Aries, or

in the 5th in Cancer, a female will be reason for the natives end.

9. DEATH DUE TO A TRIDENTS HIT.

If the 4th House is occupied by Mars, or the Sun, while Saturn is conjunct weak Moon in the 10th

House and malefics are in the Ascendant and its Trines, hit of a trident will cause the end.

10. DEATH BY HIT OF WOOD.

If the Sun is in the 4th, while the Moon devoid of strength is in the 10th along with Mars, or in

aspect to Saturn, the native will be hit by a log.

11. DEATH BY HIT OF A CLUB etc.

If weak Moon, Mars, Sun and Mercury along with Saturn are in the 10th, 8th, 4th and Ascendant (in

any way), the subject will have his end due to a club beat. If these planets fill the 10th, 9th, 5th

and Ascendant, death will be by smoke, fire, confinement, or a blow of fist.

12. DEATH DUE TO ROYAL WRATH.

If the 4th, 7th and 10th Houses are occupied by Mars, the Sun and Saturn, death will be due to

weapon, fire, or royal wrath.

13-14. DEATH DUE TO INSECTS, INTOXICANTS AND MACHINERY. Ones end will be due to

insects, if the 10th, 4th and 2nd Houses at his birth are occupied by Mars, the Moon and

Saturn. If the 10th House is constellated by the Luminaries and Mars, the native will end his

life on account of intoxicants, or fall from height. Machinery will be the source of ones death,

if the 7th House is occupied by Mars, as the trio of weak Moon, Saturn and the Sun afflict

Ascendant by occupation.

15-16. DEATH IN FILTHY SURROUNDINGS.

One will die amidst ordure, if Mars is in Libra, the Sun in Aries/Scorpio and the Moon in

Capricorn/Aquarius. The Sun, weak Moon and Mars in the 8th, 10th and 4th Houses, will kill

one amidst excrement. So says Siddhasena.

17-18. DEATH BY THIRST, WEAPONS AND BIRDS.

If the 8th House contains both the weak Moon and Saturn in aspect to strong Mars, the subject

will die due to spleen disorders, colic, thirst, or weapons. The Sun and Mars in the 7th, while

Saturn occupies the 8th and the Moon the 4th, ones death will be caused by birds.

175

19. If the Ascendant, 8th, 5th and 9th Houses are occupied by the Sun, Mars, Saturn and the

Moon, death will be due to fall from a hill, hit of a weapon, or fall of a wall etc.

20. Yavanas indicate, that the place of death will correspond to the Navansa Lagna Lord. The

aphorisms stated in this Ch. should be suitably interpreted according to other aspects and

other conjunctions.

21. The duration of the state of loss of consciousness (or insensibility, delusion, pain etc.) will

correspond to the portion elapsed in the radical Ascendant. The duration will remain doubled

and trebled according to the Ascendant Lord, or a benefic aspecting the Ascendant.

22. KHARA DREKKANA.

The 22nd decanate from the Ascendant will denote the nature of ones death. For example, by the

nature of its Lord, (i.e. the humour, place etc.)

23-24. EFFECTS OF ARIES DECANATES AS RELATED TO DEATH. If the first decanate of

Aries be the 22nd decanate from the Ascendant and be in aspect to a malefic the natives

death will be due to water (i.e. drowning etc.), snake, poison, or bilious imbalances. If the 2nd

Thus ends the 51st Ch. entitled EFFECTS OF NAVANSAS (lost horoscopy) in Kalyana

Varmas SARAVALI.

Chapter 52.

Lost Horoscopy

1. THE NATAL AYANA.

If the Ascendant at the time of query (related to tracing the lost birth data) be within the first

15 of a Sign, the birth was in Uttarayana and beyond these degrees Dakshinayana.

2-3. BIRTH RITU ETC.

The strongest of the planets in the Prashna Lagna indicates the Ritu (season) at birth. Should

there be none in the Ascendant, the Lord of the ascendant decanate is the ruler of Ritu at

birth. Should there be a clash in the Ayana and Ritu arrived at, the Ritu Lords arrived should

be interchanged thus: the Moon for Venus, Mercury for Mars and Jupiter for Saturn. The

respective month of the Ritu is decided depending on the first, or second half of the decanate

being Ascendant. The degrees elapsed in the decanate will be to the knowledge of the natal

Tithi. Some say, that this will lead to locating the natal Sun.

4-9. OTHER NATAL FACTORS.

The query Ascendant be multiplied by 2 and divided by 5 to get the natal Jupiters placement.

This should be adjusted to actual placement guessing the natives age approximately, by

increasing, or decreasing multiples of 12. If the query Ascendant is in a day Sign, declare

birth during night. Otherwise, the contrary prevails. The degree elapsed in the query

Ascendant will lead to the knowledge of elapsed portion of night, or day, as the case may be.

Out of the query Ascendant, the 5th and the 9th therefrom will indicate the natal Rasi (Moon

Sign), the strongest of the three prevailing. The parts of the body, viz. head etc. touched by

the querist at the time of query will also indicate the Moon Sign at birth. Alternatively the

distance between the query Ascendant and the query Moon may be added to the query Moon

195

to get the position of the natal Moon. This does not apply to the Moon in Pisces at the time of

query, (i. e. the natal Moon is in Pisces itself). The Navansa Lagna at the time of query may

also be the natal Ascendant. The number of decanates between the query Ascendant and

query Sun, when added to the query Sun, will yield the natal Ascendant. The longitude of the

planet in the query Ascendant should be multiplied by the figure indicated by Chayangula

(length of shadow) at that time. This should be divided by 12, the remainder of which will

indicate natal Ascendant.

10-11. POSITION OF THE QUERIST.

The following positions of the querist will indicate the natal Ascendant. Standing, lying on the

bed, sitting, or getting up will, respectively, denote the first, 4th, 7th, or 10th from query

Ascendant becoming natal Ascendant.

12. PERSONAL NAME. The name formally given by parents to the native will indicate the

natal star. Multiply the Matras (units) of the given name by 2 and add to it the Chayangula

length. Divide this by 27 and the remainder, when counted from Dhanishta will lead to the

knowledge of birth star.

13-15. ANOTHER METHOD. Note the longitude of the query Ascendant. It should be

multiplied by 10, if the Ascendant is Leo, or Taurus, by 8 in case of Gemini, or Scorpio by 7 in

case, or Aries, or Libra, by 5 in case of Virgo and Capricorn, while for the rest of the Signs by

the number denoted, when counted from Aries. (That is 4 for Cancer, 9 for Sagittarius, 11 for

Aquarius and 12 for Pisces). If the Ascendant is occupied by Jupiter, the Ascendant

converted into minutes of arc be multiplied by 10, if occupied by Mars by 8, if by Venus by 7

and, if by others by 5. Both the products so multiplied be added together. This product by

multiplied again by 10 to know the year, Ritu and month; by 7 to know the Tithi and by 5 to

arrive at Navansa Lagna and Ishta Ghati (birth time) and be, respectively, divided by their

individual dividers (i.e. 120 for year, 2 for Ritu, 15 for Tithi and the like). Addition, or reduction

of 9 may be made in case of anomalistic answers.

16. I have explained lost horoscopic rules, as expounded by Yavana, Bhadasana etc. But

some of their rules are ambiguous. The student better understand using his judgement.

17-21. LOST HOROSCOPY BASED ON MOON.

Just as the ascending degree helps trace back the lost details, the Moon Sign may also be

used. If the Moon Sign at the time of query be a night Sign, natal Moon was in a day Sign and

vice versa. Note in what quarter of the Sign is the Moon at the time of query. Proportionately

understand the natal Moon during day, or night, as the case may be. Multiply the query Moon

by the same Rasi multiplication factor, as explained supra and, if necessary by planetary

multipliers, as applicable. Multiply the resultant product (arrived by adding the two) by 7 and

divide by 27. The remainder will represent the birth star counted from Aswini. In case of

rectification by adding 9 the counting is from Moola and, if subtraction of 9 is done count from

196

Makha. The pre-division product (i.e. the product before dividing by 27, as above) should be

processed variously, as suggested earlier to know the Ritu, month, Tithi etc. at birth.

Sign in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 10th and 11th Signs.

9-10. The places mentioned above are auspicious for the various planets and the others are

inauspicious. Planets transiting Signs with more benefic dots will reveal auspicious results,

while inauspicious results will come to pass in case of transits in Signs with less benefic dots.

Benefic results will be predominant, if these Signs happen to be exaltation, own, friendly etc.

and malefic effects will be ordinary. Similarly in debilitation/inimical Signs, malefic results will

be more and benefic effects will be ordinary. In giving transit effects, the Sun and Mars will be

effective, while in the beginning of the Sign, Jupiter and Venus, while in the middle of the

Sign and lastly Saturn and the Moon, while in the end of the Sign. Mercury is effective in his

transit through the whole Sign.

Thus ends the 53rd Ch. entitled ASHTAKAVARGA in Kalyana Varmas SARAVALI.

10-12. May the astrologers be pleased with the Science of Astrology thus described by Kalyana

Varma. Ancestors, like Paulasa, Vasishta, Romasa, Yavana, Badarayana, Sakthi, Atri,

Bharadwaja, Viswamitra, Guna, Agnikesa, Garga, Parashara, Jeevasarma and a host of

others have authored elaborate texts on astrology. The science of astrology thus deals with

200

the good and bad in stock for an individual with Chitragupta (the official record keeper of

Yamathe God of Deathnoting down the virtues and vices of mankind).

Thus ends the 54th Ch. entitled EFFECTS OF ASHTAKAVARGA in Kalyana Varmas SARAVALI.

Chapter 55.

Manifold Births

1. Acharya Kanakas school of thought dealing with Manifold Births is narrated in this Ch. for the

pleasure of the astrologers and the common folk.

2. Lord Brahma created this Universe at a time, when Cancer was ascending with its Lord and in

aspect to Jupiter, while the other 5 planets were in their own Signs. Should one have a

similar radix, he will rule over the three worlds enjoying the company of the celestial dames.

3. The Science of astrology delineates the immovable and the movable through respective

differences of time, omens, form etc.

4-5. If all the malefics be with strength, while benefics be bereft of it, one of the Viyoni (Viyoni

Rasis are Rasis other than Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Aquarius and the first half of Sagittarius) be

Signs ascending with Mercury and Saturn be in Angles, or in aspect to the Ascendant, the

birth will be of a creature other than human being. The birth will correspond to the

Dwadasamsa of the Ascendant, or of the Moon prevailing at Adhana, or in the radix.

6-9. The sages have explained the hue, form etc. of the manifold births based on planetary

conjunctions and aspects, which I narrate below. The Zodiac personified signifies the several

limbs of non-human species, as under: Aries face, Taurus neck, Gemini and Pisces

shoulders and forelegs, Cancer and Aquarius back, Leo and Capricorn forelegs, Virgo and

Sagittarius hind legs, Libra anus and Scorpio tail and genital organ. The right side limbs are

denoted by Signs Gemini to Libra, while left side by Signs Scorpio to Pisces.

10-12. The strongest Sign, or the strongest Navansa ascending will indicate the hue of such birth.

If the Ascendant has a strong planet in it, the hue of the animal and the wounds on its body

will correspond to such planet. If a planet is in its own Rasi/Navansa, such effects will be

unmixed, while the one in others Sign/Navansa, will give a rough version of the hue. The

animal will have a mark on its back corresponding to the hue of the planet in the 7th House, or

the one aspecting the 7th House. If there are many related thus, the hues of the mark will be

equally many, the prime effects being from the strongest of the lot.

13-14 The hue of the animal based on the occupant of the Ascendant will be: Jupiter yellow,

Moon white, Venus variegated, Sun/Mars red, Saturn black, Mercury grass-green. If the

201

planet aspecting the Ascendant be in its own Sign and others Navansa, or vice versa, the

hue obtainable will be golden.

15-16. The planet in the Ascendant will be capable of giving such hue corresponding to the

phenomena it is influenced by, viz. Parigha, rainbow, cloud, Parivesh etc. Otherwise, the

planet will give the hue due to its nature alone.

17-18. If the Ascendant has in it a bird decanate (the first ones of Aquarius and Leo and the

second ones of Gemini and Libra), or a Movable Navansa (Aries Navansa and the Navansas

angular thereof), or Gemini Navansa/Virgo Navansa and be in aspect to Saturn birds residing

on lands will be born. In a similar case, the aspect of the Moon denotes births of birds

dwelling in water. If a water resorting Sign be on the Ascendant in aspect to a strong planet,

birds related to water will be born. Similarly land-resorting Signs in aspect to strong planets

indicate birds of land. The hue of the bird will correspond to the planet concerned.

19. Birth of trees is indicated, if the Ascendant, Sun, Jupiter and the Moon are devoid of strength,

while others are with strength. Land resorting Signs in the Ascendant indicate trees growing

on land, while water resorting Signs indicate plants etc. coming out of water.

20-21. If the Lord of rising Navansa be the Sun, trees (or plants in this context) with hard, or

strong trunk/stem will be born. The Moon denotes ones milky and soft; Jupiter fruitful, Mars

bitter and thorny, Saturn unproductive and useless (to mankind); Venus the ones yielding

flowers and Mercury unfruitful.

22-23. If the said Lord of Ascendant in Navansa be a natural malefic being in the company of a

benefic, a sub-standard tree on excellent land is denoted, while in the case of a benefic being

Ascendant Lord in Navansa and being in the company of a malefic, the reverse is true i.e., an

excellent tree on waste land. If there is a mix in the above planetary description, both the land

and the born will be of a mixed nature Watery planets indicate plants growing in water, while

land-resorters denote trees etc. growing on earth.

24. Note how many Signs away is the Navansa Lagna Lord from the ascending Sign. So many

will be the trees in number to be born. Similarly infer by the number denoted between

Navansa Ascendant and the planets Navansa position.

25-26. Manifold birth is indicated, if benefics are in their own Navansa being bereft of strength,

while malefics with strength are in their own/other malefics Navansas. Such birth is

destroyed, if the said Navansa Lord occupies a weak planets Sign, is defeated in planetary

war, conjunct with, or aspected by a malefic.

21.Explained now is four kinds of manifold births, viz. those born of seeds (like plant, tree etc.),

those born of womb (like quadrupeds etc.), those born in dirty places (like mosquitoes etc.)

and those born of eggs (snakes, birds and the like). These are based on planetary Yogas etc.

at birth.

202

28-29. A quadruped is born, if the Sun is in a quadruped Sign, while a weak planet is in a weak

Sign. I have explained the relative rules in a brief and general manner. Now told are

something surprising (more interesting) and detailed.

30-35. Should the Sun, the Moon and the Ascendant be strong in a Dwadasamsa related to a

Viyoni Sign, the birth will correspond to such Dwadasamsa. If the Moon is in Aries

Dwadasamsa in Aries Ascendant, birth of goats, rams etc., will take place. The other

Dwadasamsas related to Aries Ascendant will give following effects: Taurus cow, buffalo;

Gemini akin to a human being (like monkey, ape etc.); Cancer crab, tortoise etc., Leo tiger

etc., Virgo human beings; Libra resembling human beings, Scorpio snakes etc. Sagittarius

asses, horses etc., Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces Crocodile/human?being/fish etc. Similarly

one can guess about trees, grass etc. Just as the various Dwadasamsas of Aries have been

described, the effects for other Signs can also be understood.

36-37. The Dwadasamsa effects of the manifold births will depend on the first Dwadasamsa of a

Sign and the remaining Dwadasamsa should be understood based on the first division cited.

Just as a Dual Rasi with male Navansa causing birth of twins in the case of human beings, in

the case of other births male planets in the first Dwadasamsa being in Dual Sign etc., the

number of births be decided.

38-40. In case of a living being yielding multiples at a time (like snake, hen, bitch etc.) the number

of births will depend on Dwadasamsas past. Male/female should be decided by the

Dwadasamsas distributed in such Signs. If the Ascendant is tenanted by the

Moon/Saturn/Mercury, tortoises etc. will yield such number equaling the Dwadasamsas

elapsed. Venus, Mars, Moon, or Saturn being with strength will denote Sattva, Rajas and

TamoGunas of the births according to the Amsas.

41. If a (qualified) planet occupies other Navansas than of its own, the birth will be unnatural.

42-44. Should Scorpio ascend with a biped Navansa birth of snakes, rats, insects, mongoose,

scorpions, snakes without poison, deer, cows etc. will take place.

45-46. The divisions of Sagittarius with aspect from Jupiter denote birth of horses, asses, camels,

buffaloes etc.

47-48. Capricorn and its divisions indicate birth of forest animals, like tiger, rhinoceros, swine,

wolf elephants (Sarabha apart from meaning an elephant also denotes a fabulous 8 legged

animal said to be stronger than even a lion), eagles and the like.

49. Pisces (and its divisions) enjoying Jupiters aspect relates to creatures living in deep waters,

like giant fish, whale etc.

50. Aries (and its divisions) with the aspect of Mars portends births of goat, ram etc., while Taurus

(and its divisions) with aspect from Venus denotes cow, bull, buffalo etc.

51. Thus have to be deduced the possibilities of births of the various creatures depending on the

rising Sign with aspect of its own Lord and the divisions of the rising Sign.

203

52. If a Sign resorting to towns/villages (like Gemini) Ascendant with Navansa of

Leo/Scorpio/Capricorn, such animals, though wild, as bred in villages, or townships (like

elephant, bear etc.) will take their birth.

53. In the process, Navansas of land-resorting Signs will indicate births of animals moving on

land and water-resorting Signs. , animals/creatures dwelling in water.

54 If Libra be the Ascendant in aspect to Venus, a decanate of Libra denotes birth of parrots,

flaming, partridge etc.

55. Peacock, cock/hen, francoline partridge, turtledove and birds living on (only) rain drops, are

born, if Leo rises with Suns aspect and with various own divisions.

56. If a Fixed Sign with aspect to Saturn obtaining various divisions of the same classifications

rises, births of temples, houses, choultries etc. begin. The colour, structure etc. will have to

be guessed with the help of aspecting planets, as explained earlier.

Thus ends the 55th Ch. entitled Manifold Births in Kalyana Varmas Saravali.
