understanding and overcoming your dark sides An astrological treatise by Krishnaraj Divakaran

PREFACE

We have not seen many who have risen completely above negative emotions. (a Ramana Maharshi or a Mother Teresa or an Amritanandamayi doesn’t happen all too often!) But, we have seen people with loads of negative energy transforming into positive ones, thanks to the guidance received from within and out. Let us list a few negative emotions: expressed/suppressed. 1. The instinct to inflict physical or emotional pain onto others/oneself or to witness it, and derive pleasure out of it.


2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Anger Lust Jealousy Greed Parasitism Pride, and the desire to be respectable, by any means Gluttony and Substance addiction Laziness Obsoleteness(not enriching oneself and falling into a monotonous subsistence.)

As we know, the reason for all these being a simple but very deep reason: Lack of understanding about the interdependence of each and every existence in this nature(compassion and responsibility to be fulfilling to oneself and others naturally arise out of this understanding) This book will show you that even the most respectable of the society, the rich, the beautiful and even the greatest of saints, all have the negative traits. It just so happens that the wise ones, are in control. May be with hard effort in the beginning and later, with lesser effort. This book offers an astrological angle of the negative traits and propitiations to get over them, as much as one can. A glimpse through these pages will make us understand that we can change our destiny of future births by prayers in this birth. Another interesting angle is that the lagna is you. 5th is your son. The 5th of 5th, namely the 9th is son’s son. But then 9th also happens to be your dharma and father. Which means, your dharma will translate into your grandson! Ie. your father’s dharma is your son. This shows how much we are dependant on our fathers’ and grandfathers’ dharmas for what we are! Varahamihira has emphasized that the time of conception (adhana lagna) is the actual time of birth. The state of minds of the parents at this time plays a very important role in the formation of character of the offspring. In the modern world, when most children are just the offsprings of animal love, this awareness factor is very significant for the formation of a better future world.

Grahas


Surya, Chandra and the Lagna(or the ascendant, the rising point in the horizon, at the time of your birth) are considered to be the 3 pillars of a horoscope. Surya is the natural Atmakaraka, the actual state of the self. Chandra is the Manokaraka (mind), or the signifactor for collection of emotions and thoughts. And the lagna, signifies our perception about the self, and its projections. Sukra is the karaka for sensual pleasure, while Kuja gives the drive to seek pleasure. Sani is the karaka for delays, pain and agony while his agent, Rahu is the master deceiver who lends the streak to seek the smoky zones. (Ketu, the agent of Kuja, is more of direct destruction and detachment). Budha is sarcastically witty and playful. And, Guru, is the master of dharma, the one who helps in knowing what is right and wrong.

The 12 Rasis, can be interpreted as: Mesha- the adventurer, like a mountain goat. Rishabha- the settler, like the domesticated cattle. Mithuna- the playful, like a couple Karkataka- the withdrawn, like a crab Simha- the majestic, lion like. Kanya- the fertile, like a riverside virgin land. Thula- the measurer, symbolized by the balance. Vrischika- the self doubting, as a Scorpion Dhanus- the daring, symbolized by a Horse and Bow. Makara- the opportunist, a deer, or otherwise a crocodile Kumbha- the seeker, like the man who bears an empty pot and Meena- the transient, as a fish couplet, in the last of the signs before the start of the next phase.

The 12 Bhavas(houses) can be interpreted as: lagna or 1 = perception of the self and its projection, ie. the personality. 2 = speech and the family you administer. 3 = communications/expressions other than by speech(includes valour) and also indicates initiative. 4 = comforts you enjoy. 5 = your romantic nature and potency. 6 = the enmities you incur through your words and acts. 7 = sensuality and the vacuum you feel like fulfilling through partnerships 8 = your transparency, masked faces and love of the mysterious. 9 = your righteousness or dharma.


10 = karma and the esteem it generates. 11 = desire manifestation. 12 = frustrations, disgrace and loss of hope.

Purusharthas

As you are aware, Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha are the four Purusharthas. An attempt to translate them will be to the effect, Righteousness, Material resources, Desires and Salvation. In Bhavas(houses) 1, 5 and 9 represent the dharma triangle, 2, 6 and 10 – the artha triangle, 3, 7 and 11 – the kama triangle and 4, 8 and 12 – the moksha triangle. Likewise in Rasis, Mesha, Simha and Dhanus represent Dharma, Rishabha, Kanya and Makara – Artha Mithuna, Thula and Kumbha – Kama and Karkataka, Vrishchika and Meena represent Moksha. In Nakshatras, the classification is as follows: Aswini, Bharani, first pada of Krittika, Magha, Pubba, first pada of Uthra, Moola, Purvashada, first pada of Uthrashada - Dharma Last 3 padas of Krittika, Rohini, first 2 padas of Mrigasirsha, last 3 padas of Uthra, Hasta, first 2 padas of Chitra, first 3 padas of Uthrashada, Sravana, first 2 padas of Dhanishta - Artha Last 2 padas of Mrigasirsha, Ardra, first 3 padas of Punarvasu, last 2 padas of Chitra, Swati, Visakha’s first 3 padas , Dhanishta’s last 2 padas, Satabhisha, first 3 padas of Poorvabhadra – Kama Last pada of Punarvasu, Pushya and Aslesha, last pada of Visakha, Anuradha, Jyeshta, last pada of Poorvabhadra, Uthrabhadra, and Revathy - Moksha The Karaka for Dharma and Artha is Guru, Kama is Sukra and Moksha is Ketu.


Kama

Desire for anything gets listed under Kama. Be it for money, sex or for Moksha! Whenever there is a preponderance of Mithuna, Thula or Kumbha, or Bhavas 3, 7 and 11th, by means of Lagna’s or Chandra’s sambandha(connection), the Kama factor will be very evident. It will be accented in the Kama nakshatras. Is the Kama, for sex or Moksha or what for, has to be seen from the disposition of the rasi/bhava lords and the grahas occupying them. Eg. for a Thula lagna native, whose 7th lord Kuja is positioned in 4th in Makara, in Uccha rasi, aspected by uccha Guru from Karkataka, the sensual feelings will be very much within the moral boundaries. Whereas, for a Kumbha lagna native with Sukra in 7th who is aspected by Kuja from Rishabha, with no other compensations, will find it difficult to control his passionate desires. The general orientation of the native, is always to be kept in mind when we assess the kama aspect. Which is evident from his Lagna, Surya and Chandra. Eg. If a person has got Karkataka, a moksha sign as his lagna, with Guru in uccha and Chandra in Swakshetra posited there, even if other malefic streaks are present, his general orientation will take care of moralities, to an extent.

Artha One’s resources, inherited and accrued, and the way it builds up can be seen from 2nd , 6th and 10th houses, Rishabha, Kanya and Makara rasis and the artha nakshatras mentioned earlier. As these resources are the means by which most of the kamas can be attempted to be fulfilled, it assumes great significance in human lives. If a person has got predominance of Grahas in artha rasis, even if he is born in a moksha rasi, he will end up striving to make material resources. And, conversely, if one has Artha rasi birth, but if the lord is in dharma or moksha position, the materialization of resources will be less. A comparison: Dhanu lagna, Sani in Rishabha Vs. Makara lagna, Sani in Dhanus. In the first case, even though the birth is in a Dharma sign, the second lord Sani is in an Artha sign, Rishabha. This happens to be the 6th house, which is an artha house, which indicates that situations will so arise that continuous effort will be made for acquisition of wealth. Whereas in the second case, the 2nd lord, Sani is in 12th, a Moksha house and Dharma rasi indicating a detachment to the wealth making process.


The spiritually oriented ones have always maintained great detachment to wealth as they felt that money brings chances for more attachment. So, in a spiritual sense, an ideal situation could be birth in a moksha/dharma rasi and artha house lord posited in moksha/dharma rasi/house.

Dharma

Dharma, assumes maximum significance in Purusharthas as this is what will be determining the conscious attitude of the person. No matter how the Kama and Artha houses are disposed, if the Dharma rasis are strongly founded, it will ultimately lead to goodness. The first of Dharma houses is Lagna, which is the basic orientation or the way we would like to see our self. The second being the 5th house which is the house of wise discrimination of right and wrong. The third Dharma house in the 9th house, which is the Upasana and the way we conduct ourselves. The natural Dharma rasis in the Zodiac are Mesha, Simha and Dhanus. The Nakshatras involved are Aswini, Bharani, first pada of Krittika, Magha, Pubba, first pada of Uthra, Moola, Purvashada, first pada of Uthrashada. Illustration: A Dhanus lagna native with his 7th house occupied by Sukra will find his desires well controlled if the 9th lord(Upasana) Surya will occupy the 5th house(Viveka) Mesha, which happens to be his Uccha rasi.

Moksha

The Moksha or salvation, indicators are House numbers: 4, 8 & 12, the Rasis: Karkataka, Vrischika & Meena, and the Nakshatras: last pada of Punarvasu, Pushya and Aslesha, last pada of Visakha, Anuradha, Jyeshta, last pada of Poorvabhadra, Uthrabhadra and Revathy. And, lets not forget the moksha karaka, Ketu. The study of Moksha parameters is most complex as two of the most difficult Dusthanas, namely 8th and 12th are featuring in it. As a general rule, Dusthanas won’t hurt if they become inert zones. That is if they have no associations or aspects from/to other houses. A Dusthana lord will do well if he is posited in another Dusthana. This goes by the name, Vipareeta Rajayoga.


4th house is the house of comforts. It is also the house of simplicity or transparency you have. 8th is the house of struggle and 12th is the house of Swakshayam or disgrace / deterioration. A closer look at these 3 houses will show that Moksha is very much beyond contentment. An illustration: For a Meena lagna native, 4th lord Budha is in Thula, the 8th. Suppose the 12th is occupied by Ketu and its lord Sani is in 4th, we can safely predict that this person has very less of comforts and is in a very stressed out situation. But with support from Karkataka, the 5th lord Chandra, and Kuja, the lord of Vrischika the 9th, this native has got great chances for Moksha. Ie. even without peace of mind and contentent, moksha is possible. Another logical explanation could be that comfortable situations very rarely let us seek God. This is very much in contrast with the common understanding of spiritual masters’ teaching that, out of peace arises moksha.

Dusthanas- 6th , 8th and 12th houses

As we have seen above, two houses involved in Moksha are Dusthanas, namely, 8th and 12th. Likewise Artha’s 6th is featuring in Dusthana, but Kama’s and Dharma’s no house is featuring. But out of our experience, we need to consider 3rd and 7th houses of Kama as secondary Dusthanas. Dusthanas are houses who cause much of suffering. The show off nature and courage/timidity of the 3rd house lands us up in trouble many a time. So does the passionate nature of 7th. This is why even 3rd and 7th are included as the secondary Dusthanas. Through which factors life will turn desperate depends on which houses are related to these Dusthanas. If 2nd lord is in a Dusthana, money could be the problem or if it is the 7th, marriage or desires could be the problem. If 9th lord is associated with a Dusthana, we may have problems in Upasana. Imagine the plight of a person who is unable to pray too! But it is these Dusthanas which hold tremendous potential in leading us to Moksha. The Dusthanas will lead us to so much of frustration that we feel we are in no control at any point ot time. We reach such a helpless level that we call out loud to the God with no hope, and it just happens! May be this is what the masters say, Let go.

Trikonas- the goodness trine


The lagna symbolizes what you are and what you look to be. The 5th house denotes the Poorvapunnya and wisdom and the 9th house denotes the Bhagya arising out of upasana. 9th is also called the parapunnya or the punnya you carry over to the next birth. Another interesting angle is that the lagna is you. 5th is your son. The 5th of 5th, namely the 9th is son’s son. But then 9th also happens to be your dharma and father. Which means, your dharma will translate into your grandson! And your father’s dharma is your son. This shows how much we are very much dependant on our fathers’ and grandfathers’ dharmas for what we are! A question may arise, why this is not applicable in mother’s lineage. It is, but in a slightly material level. This could be so as Veda considers the Purusha as the Chaitanyam which sparks life in the otherwise potent but inert earth.

Significance of Wisdom

A school of thought is that a strong 5th house(wisdom) will lead to maximum utilization of the potential available. With the support of Bhagya, the 9th house and properly banking on Knowledge (the 2nd house), one can do right Karma(10th house) which will result in Moksha(12th, the last of Moksha houses)

Detailed analysis of negative emotions

The Lagna, the Atmakaraka Surya and the Manokaraka Chandra being the 3 pillars of the horoscope, play the greatest roles in the basic orientation of the person. And, whenever there is a lack of equilibrium in the Purusharthas, or to be more precise, whenever there is an excess of Kama and Artha, it results in negative emotions. Another way of putting it is, when the Dharma and Moksha houses/signs fail to perform properly, negativity results.

A word of caution here. Many a time we consider only the sthoola (apparent) and not the sookshma. Eg. we find the atmakaraka Surya in dharma rasi Mesha, its uccha rasi and pronounce the person as a very authoritative person. But if Surya’s amsaka is in a weakening sign like makara, the peron will become an egotist who would create sufferings to his associates. Or, we find a Thula lagna native with Sani in lagna, in Uccha and we pronounce him a Kroora(cruel). But suppose Sani receives an aspect from Guru in


strength, he may become a very disciplined yogi too. So before jumping into conclusions we need to be aware of all angles.

1) The instinct to inflict physical or emotional pain onto others/oneself or to witness it, and derive pleasure out of it: When the lagna lord is weak and afflicted, oneself will suffer and when the lagna lord is strong but afflicted, others will suffer. Pain is ruled by Sani. It is triggerred by Kuja. Like how wind will accent fire. It has been observed that when Kuja, Surya, Rahu, Ketu and even Budha are present in the 2 nd house, speech of the native results in hurting others. When the 10th house is so afflicted, it is the actions that hurt. Mars and Surya in 10th in an afflicted condition produces tyrannical rulers, whereas a bad Sani + Rahu combination will give rise to a backstabber. Kumbha lagna native, with Kuja occupying the lagna and Sani in 3rd in neecha. The 9th lord Sukra is in Neecha Meena and 10th is occupied by Rahu. Guru is seen to occupy 12th Makara in Neecha along with a Satrukshetra Surya. And, imagine Chandra is without pakshabala. Here the Kama lagna with Kuja in it, and the lagna lord Sani in neecha, with no friendly support from Surya and Chandra will surely make this person negative. This negativity will be expressed out as per the situations that arise during the Dasa- Apaharas. 2) Lust: The combination of Sukra and Kuja is notorious for lust. While Sukra gives the desire, Kuja gives the drive. We need to consider Rahu, the eununchs Sani and Budha too. Sukra occupying Kuja’s or Sani’s rasi generally gives too much passion. Sukra in (mouddhya) combustion will either make the native frigid or excessive. A subha drishti(aspect) from Guru wil ofcourse help in keeping things under control. 3) Pride, and the desire to be respectable, by any means:

True respect is a by-product of graceful actions. It can never be forced on. But, our natural weaknesses and our desire to be important drives us to do many things which make us feel like a rat later. The main villians here are the Lagna, 10th house, 3rd house, Surya, Kuja and Guru. An affliction to these factors will always render the person an egoist. 10th house being the house of honour and esteem attains special significance. In normal cases, Guru will compensate for most of the evils. But suppose for Mesha lagna, Guru is in neecha in makara, the 10th house, there will be many acts of pride which will hurt oneself and others. The affliction can come from other Grahas like Rahu too.


4) Jealousy: When others have what you don’t have, or when you feel you have lesser than others, jealousy results. And a worse condition is feeling bad about other’s happiness. If Surya, Chandra and the Lagna are strong and unafflicted, one will be content and jealousy is ruled out. Bhavas to watch out for are: Lagna, 3 rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 12th. As you must have observed, too many houses are involved here that the control part gets tougher. Even Guru falls in status if he is in an artha or kama rasi. 5) Greed: Insatiable need of money, love or anything else can be classified under greed. This can turn quite negative, as this could never let you enjoy what you have as you are always in the process of looking for more. Mostly greed and jealousy go hand in hand. If Sani takes the lead role in jealousy, it is Chandra in greed. Sukra, Kuja, Rahu, Ketu or even Surya fares bad if afflicted in Lagna, 2 nd, 3rd, 6th, 10th, and 11th which are the most important houses in this case. 6) Parasitism: Parasitism here is meant as: To derive one’s energy by sucking the life out of the host. Self is lagna. Generally, The descendant or 7th shows our attitude to others. 2nd house is the house of our family we administer, 3rd is our co-borns, 4th is motherly relations, uncles and relationships through marriage, 5th is offsprings, 6th is the house of dependants/servants and enemies, 7th is your love relationships and marriage, 8th is your legacy, 9th is your fatherly/priestly relations, 10th is your political relationships, 11th your elder co-borns and 12th your enemies relations. When the lagna has a healthy relationship with the concerened house, the relationships pertaining to that house will be good. Eg. if lagna and 5th lord are friendly and have a good relationship, then there will be Putra soukhyam. If lagna lord and 6th lord are in friendly terms there wont be much of trouble from enemies. Lkewise, suppose a weak lagna or its lord is afflicting Surya or 9th / 9th lord, then there wil be trouble to father due to the native. So, who is the host and who is the parasite need to be seen from the lagna and the concerned house relationship and who gets weak in the process. . 7) Anger: Look out for Surya, Kuja, Sani and Rahu. The houses to be considered are Lagna, 3rd, 6th, 5th, 10th and the 2nd. 3rd is the house of obstinancy, courage and its expression.6th is the house of enemities. 5th is the discretion and wisdom. 10th – esteem, 2nd is speech. Rasis to be considered are Mesha, Simha, Dhanus


and the above houses’ rasis. How cold or how volatile you will be depends on the nature of Grahas. Sani is cold whereas Rahu or Kuja are very aggressive. 8) Gluttony/Substance Addiction: It has been found that emotional factors behind gluttony and addiction are same. Depression, boredom, restlessness, and lack of outlet of creative energy. Physical factors include excess of bilious energy, indicated by 6th house and 2nd house being occupied by Sani, Kuja, Sukra or Surya. Rahu in 5th, 9th or lagna is also a mojor driving factor. Guru in 2nd house will make one enjoy food, but one will control the intake as age progresses. One’s tastes for food can be observed from ones 2nd and 3rd house’s satvic nature. More malefic influences in these houses lead to non-vegetarianism of all forms. Here 9th (dharma) and 5th (viveka) houses also play a significant role. Sukra in watery signs, influenced by Kuja, Rahu or Sani is a primary factor for substance addiction. With a weak Chandra, one may not be able to come back to normalcy, if addicted. Many a time, addiction has led natives with Chandra- Sani combination to insanity and even suicides.

9) Laziness and Obsoleteness (not enriching oneself and falling into a subsistence.) Other than our basic factors, namely the Lagna, Surya and Chandra, the following factors are very important: Sani has been described as “Mando alasa:” Kuja has been described as the Oja karaka, which means the driving energy. 6th house(house of lack of focus and laziness), 3rd house(the house of drive), and the 10th(the house of karma). People with Sani in lagna are supposed to be very slow and lazy unless otherwise fortified. Kumbha lagna people with an afflicted Mesha and Karkataka are seen to be the most lazy people. Guru in 6 th is another yogam for laziness. Benefic grahas like Guru or Sukra coming into 3rd, reduces the veeryam(valour or virility) of a person.

Propitiations


Normally, it is when we have the wrath of Grahas, we consult a Jyotisha. When nothing else works out, we blindly follow the Jyotisha and the Priest and do any unreaonable thing they suggest. Mostly the advices rendered will be like, “you are having such a bad period because of this and that, and there is a small chance that you may get ok if you do these propitiations.� The desperate client will do anything and everything possible as he has no other go. 70 % cases, the propitiations fail and yet there wont be much complaints, as it was previosly told that it may not work due to the severity of the bad period. Or, because by this time a new problem would have cropped up! The propitiations mentioned below are inexpensive, self do-able, surely helpful in general body and mind health. And if it works for you to rectify the bad periods, it means Astrology works. Find out for yourself:

Propitiations for an afflicted Surya

When Surya is afflicted, you need to do atleast 20 minutes of sunbath daily. Wheat intake has to be increased. Red chilly to be avoided. (Green chilly can be taken.) Copper utensils to be preferred for cooking. Drinking water kept atleast for 2 hours in Copper vessels will be very beneficial for all diseases Surya causes. Surya namaskaram surely helps. Words to be honoured, or false promises not to be given. Practice real dignity but check the haughtiness factor. Siva bhava is to be worshipped. Best mantra is Om Nama: Sivaya: 1008 times.

Propitiations for an afflicted Chandra

When Chandra is afflicted, regular sea bath helps. Fat in milk and allied products to be maximum avoided. Soya most preferred. Eating 5-6 times in a day to be avoided. 2 heavy meals are more than enough for afflicted Chandra. Liquids help more. Use more silver at home. Watering and taking care of plantlife is an effective remedy for Chandra doshas. Chandra aradhana on fullmoons and newmoons are very powerful. Gouri to be worshipped. Best mantra is Om Sivaya nama: 501 times.

Propitiations for an afflicted Kuja

Exercise helps these people more than anyone else.


The dreaded Chovva dosham can be propitiated to a large extent, by removing the congestion of negative aggressive energy through channelized exercising. Reducing Sodium salt and substituting with Pottassium salt helps. (to be done after Doctor’s consent.) Butter milk and Red Gram to be an integral part of the diet. Taking care of the earth is the greatest propitiation for an afflicted Kuja. This could be at your Kitchen garden or a service to the nearby forest land. Bhava for worship- Kumara. Hara haro hara is one of the best mantra for Kuja. Atleast 108 times.

Propitiations for an afflicted Budha

Budha loves it when people focusses on what they do. Intermittent silence and audible mantra japam work wonders for Budha betterment. Teaching younger ones without an authoritative air is well liked by Budha. Green gram not just betters the logical memory, it gives better skin too. Vishnu incarnations like Krishna and Rama are Budha’s bhava. A effective mantra being: Om Krishnaya Parabrahmanae nama: 1008 times.

Propitiations for an afflicted Guru

Here is one who appreciates orthodoxy. Respectful attitude towards fatherly people and Gurus will be well received by Guru. So is the effect of chanting Bhajans. Bengal Gram will do wonders for wisdom and taking fasting vritas like ekadasi vrita will go a very long way in Guru preethi. Om Gurubhyo Nama: 1116 times is the mantra and the bhava is Parabrahma Vishnu.

Propitiations for an afflicted Sukra

Treating all women like mother and keeping away from addictive substances(including food for which we have obession) will be good for Sukra afflicted people. Simple dressing, lesser show off and learning music and artforms will help more. Vanpayar(lobia) and honey + tender coconut water are effective for virility. Annapoorna and Lalita are highly potent bhavas of Sukra. Usable Mantra: Sree devea nama: 1005 times.

Propitiations for an afflicted Sani


Yoga is the best for the Yogiswara. All forms of disciplined physical work would be appreciated. Cleanliness(personal as well as surroundings) matters. So does being helpful to lesser fortunate. Sesame oil application under the feet and all over the body will have special effects in taking care of alasyam.(laziness) Yogeswaraya nama: 1007 times is a miraculous mantra. Bhava is Hari Hara Suta.

Propitiations for an afflicted Rahu

The ultimate deceiver will do better without garlic and with lots of turmeric in food. Kadali pazham(a variety of banana) and Milk + ginger + Jaggery is another good combination which could be taken after prayers to Rahu.

Propitiations for Gulikan

Upachayas are okay for Gulikan, but he is not good even in the best of Upachaya, 11th! Gulikan can be propitiated by reverential rememberance of forefathers. Before food and while bathing a prayer for them will do wonders. A lamp lit with reverence, every evening at the south west corner will be good. Special day for prayers being dark moon nights. Bhava: forefathers. Mantra: Pitruvae nama: 11 times.

Gandhiji was born in Kanya lagna, a very fertile artha sign. It is also known for its steady, systematic, methodological nature. A notable kanya lagna physical characteristic is drooping shoulders. Gandhiji was born in the nakshatra Aslesha. Aslesha is a star known for its slow and steady entwining/ influencing nature, be it for positive or for negative purposes. Chandra in swakshetra, karkataka with a meena navamsa is strong though it has the weakness of Krishna paksha. Lagna Surya which would have made him a fiery aggressive man, got tempered as it is neecha aaropi (going towards neecha in thula) and due to ocupation of the cool Kanya, and the navamsa in another Budha sign, Mithuna. Being the lord of 12th, the house of frustrations and losses, Surya in lagna conferred on him the temperament to suffer and to stand for a cause. Still, one can find a kind of excessive seeking of suffering also through this combination. May be this was his moksha marga. Chandra in Swakshetra in Karakataka, with its navamsa in the Gurukshetra Meena is very favourable, especially as it is posited in the Sarvabheeshta sthaanam, namely the 11th. This favours desire fulfillment, though we can find some clouding and masking of desires due to the Rahu yoga of the Krishna paksha Chandra. This also gives a kind of Unmada yoga. (tendency for hysteria) Kama(desires): Bhavas 3, 7 and 11, the rasis Mithuna, Thula and Kumbha, the grahas Sukra, Kuja, Sani and Rahu are the key indicators of Kama. 3rd lord is Kuja, who is occupying a Kama rasi, Thula, along with Sukra and Budha. Anytime there is a relationship between Kuja and Sukra, there is an accentuation of sensual passions. Here the yoga is in both rasi as well as in navamsa which strengthens the point further. A positive relief is that the yoga has the drishti from Guru(though he is the 7th lord) 3rd house, which shows the


drive, has got Sani in it, which will slow it down, but doesn't kill it. 7th lord is Guru occupying 8th, a dusthana. This indicates the denial of a platform for sensual gratification. Guru in swakshetra navamsa makes it more satvic. 11th lord Chandra has been discussed before. The goodness trine, 1, 5 and 9: Lagna lord is Budha, who is in a favourable bhava, the vaksthaana, the 2nd. (Budha here is Karmadhipa too) He has association with another trine lord, Sukra which is very favourable. Budha's navamsa from the rasi lagna's 5th house, the house of wisdom further accents the goodness. 5th lord Sani is in 3rd house, an ishta bhava for Sani and in Swakshetra navamsa. But we need to see the negative presence of Ketu in the 5th, which ofcourse brings problems too in decision making. 9th lord, Sukra is in excellent strength by being in Swaksetra in Rasi as well as Navamasa. His yoga with the lagna and karmadhipa Budha (dharmakarmadhipa yoga) has conferred on him qualities par excellence, though the desire factor is accented by the yoga with Kuja. Gandhiji constantly tried to rise above his kamas and pursue the path of Dharma to seek moksha. We have much to learn from " the small obstinate man".

Ramalinga Raju was born in Vrischika lagna, the natural 8th house of the zodiac. This rasi is a moksha sign, but with a self defeating attitude. (the infamous self stinging scorpion when defeated) The lagna lord Kuja is in an excellent position, the dhana sthaana 2nd and in the navamsa of athibandhu Surya. But the association with the shadowy planet Rahu is not desirable. The lagna has the full aspect from Guru, which reduces the negativity of the horoscope. The manokaraka Chandra is weak and makes him dependant on others for his happiness due to Krishna paksha and the positioning in 6th, a dusthana. The aspect of Sani from 12th house, further accents the negativity. This gets worse as Chandra in this case, is the lord of Upasana and Dharma also. That is when Mr. Raju gets into difficult moods, his mind doesn’t allow him to do even prayers! Being in the Nakshatra Bharani lorded by Lord Yama, there will be tremendous internal conflicts when deviating from idealistic situations. The atmakaraka Surya is occupying the 10th house(esteem), Swakshetra Simha and in Guru’s navamsa. This gives a subtly proud nature which desires respect more than money. The positive is that, he can derive tremendous atmachaitanyam through performing his duties.

Kama /desires:


3rd lord Sani, and 7th lord Sukra are both in a yoga in a kama rasi Thula. This happens to be the 12th, a dusthana. The 11th lord, the next consideration, is also occupying the Kama house 11th, but in Uccha wit Swakshetra navamsa. These points coupled with the influence of a weak Dustha Chandra and Surya posited in 10th will surely make the person desirous of worldly respect and sensual too. The influence of Guru in Uccha vargottama in Dharma sthaana will take care of all this other than when very bad periods would run, when what is required is more upasana and sticking to idealisms. Sufferings, the result of Dusthanas: 6th, 8th and 12th are the Dusthanas responsible for sufferings. In Raju’s case, 6th has Chandra, 8th has Ketu and 12th has Sukra and Sani. Which means during the periods of these grahas he may find himself in situations which lead him to sufferings. Presently Raju is running the period of 6th house Chandra in Rahu dasa. 6th is more about financial liabilities, cases and diseases. So its quite natural that he has seen himself getting into all this now. Post mortems do help. Atleast for the others around. When bad periods run, we need to depend more on the superior power and obtain grace. The goodness factors: The lord of wisdom, ie the 5th lord Guru is Vargottama in 9th, the bhagya sthaana in his Uccha kshetra Karkataka. It is aspected by lagna lord Kuja. As the 5th house is poorva punnyam and 9th is the para punnyam Raju will surely benefit from all his present birth’s struggle in his next birth. Raju is of course a worldly wise man, no matter where his Rahu dasa’s Chandra apaharam has landed him in! He will emerge stronger and wiser if he doesn’t sting himself with his self defeating attitude during the present period (upto august 2009). After June 2010, when this Guru dasa starts, Raju’s fortunes will soar high, spiritually for sure, and materially too.
