Can you ever get relief ?
Possibility of Remedy in a Horoscope
By Dr. Revathi Vee Kumar

The inherent potential of a horoscope that supports remedies to work effectively can be assessed, only after tracing and assessing the nature and scale/severity of past karmic influences, which are the main causes for our problems in present life and knowing before hand the ‘Divine Grace’ of a native, which guides and faciltates the fruition of human effort.

 
Generally, we see that some people are ‘born with a Silver spoon’ in the sense that they are always lucky and get whatever they want in life. Most often, such people are not so religious in nature as well, although there are exceptions. But, some others who are not only very devout, but also used to observing all sorts of religious practices regularly including daily prayers to Gods, fasts and festivals, etc keep complaining repeatedly about their problems in life, despite such observances. But, in many cases, we also hear that such sufferings were mitigated by the performance of certain remedial measures, recommended to them by their Guides or family Astrologers. The cause for all such varied experiences in life is nothing but the effect of our past karmas (actions), the nature of which is reflected in our horoscopes. Therefore, by examining a chart we would be able to know whether a native is destined to enjoy comforts and/or suffer in life, besides the scale of Yoga or the nature and seriousness of the problems. When there is any problem, whether there is any remedy to it or not can also be known. A careful analysis of the horoscope and a proper synthesis of all the relevant observations reveal clearly not only the nature of problems, but also their cause and possibility of making amends to them. The inherent potential of a horoscope that supports remedies to work effectively can be assessed, only after tracing and assessing the nature and scale/severity of past karmic influences, which are the main causes for our problems in present life and knowing before hand the 'Divine Grace' of a native, which guides and faciltates the fruition of human effort. Let us discuss these concepts in detail in this article.


Tracing the past karmic influences

We know that a fire cannot be put-out without knowing its source. Similarly, we can try to make amends for our mistakes, only when we are aware of our wrong doings. On the same lines, if and only if we know the actual reasons for all our problems in life, we can perform suitable remedies to them. Veerasimhaavalokanam, a classic on Ayurveda, states as -

"Karmaprakopena kadhaachidheke Doshaprakopena bhacanthi jaanye Thathaapare praanishu karmadoshaprakopajaah kaayamanovikaarah"

Meaning : Diseases of the body or mind can be the result of imbalance of the Humours or due to sins in past births (karma) or due to both. (Translation by Sri. K.Narayanan).This means that all our sufferings (as well as luck) in the present life are due to the effects of our deeds in past lives. If so, is it possible to identify these past karmic effects in a horoscope, astrologically? An emphatic ‘yes’ is the answer. Let us discuss ‘how’.

In Phaladeepika (Chapter.14, Verse. 24), it is stated that the lord of the 9th house indicates all about a native’s past birth, while all information about his future birth is revealed by the planet owning the 5th. According to Saravali, (ch.3, sl.26/27), one’s past merits should be estimated from the 9th house. The following note by Late Sri. J.N.Bhasin, an illustrious author on Astrology, to his translation of Slokas 35 to 39 of Chapter 3 of Sarvartha Chinthamani is of special significance in this context: “… The capacity to understand & know the future is given by the excellence of the 5th house & its lord, for the 5th house relates to “future” as distinct from the 9th house which relates to the past (having crossed the horizon before birth).” Hence, first let us understand the role of these two houses in a better way, as it helps us to trace the past karmic imprints in a horoscope.

Tracing the past karmic influences in a horoscope is to be done in two stages. i.e., first the 5th and 9th houses of the chart are to be examined to know the native’s overall karmic impacts in this present life and then the 5th & 9th houses to the particular house signifying the specific area of life to be assessed must be examined and all these observations have to be evaluated together and final conclusions must be drawn.

The 5th house (Poorva punya) signifies not only the sum and substance of all the past karmic actions of an individual, but also their fruits to be enjoyed in subsequent births. That is, 5th house indicates the source (Sanchita Karma), from which the birth emanates. In other words, one’s future depends on the 5th house. The 9th house signifies one’s Prarabda, which happens to be a part of the original resources brought forward at birth to enjoy as Luck in the present life. That is, what a particular native is destined to get in this life based on his own past karmas is governed by 9th house. In other words, 9th house indicates as to what is in store for a native in this present life based on his past deeds.

It follows from the above that the 5th house is the central fulcrum among the Trines, which exerts its direct influences on the Ascendant (birth of the self) on one side and the 9th house (signifying his luck and Prarabda) on the other side.
Thus, by analysing both the 5th and 9th houses, we can get a clue on the over-all nature of karmic influences in a chart.

Applying the same analogy, it can be concluded that the 5th house to any house would indicate the source, from which the results of a house originate (or the cause for a particular nature/type of results) while the 9th house from any house would indicate, as to what can be expected in respect of that house in the present birth. Thus, by examining the houses in Trine to a particular house, we can trace the karmic imprints on that particular house also.

To summarise, tracing the past karmic influences in a horoscope is to be done in two stages. i.e., first the 5th and 9th houses of the chart are to be examined to know the native’s overall karmic impacts in this present life and then the 5th & 9th houses to the particular house signifying the specific area of life to be assessed must be examined and all these observations have to be evaluated together and final conclusions must be drawn.

Fewer the sins, lesser the pains As per the basic principles of Predictive Astrology, the occupancy, aspect, conjunctional and other influences of benefic planets give auspicious results, while that of the malefic planets only create problems and sufferings in life, owing to the various types of afflictions and adverse yogas (combinations) caused by them in the chart. It is an obvious fact that the severity of afflictions is commensurate with the seriousness of the sins committed in past lives and that the strength of benefic Yogas depends on the scale of benevolent deeds (punya). As we already know, there are hundreds of benefic yogas and malefic combinations named as Doshas (blemishes), Shapas (curses), Arishtas (afflictions to longevity and wellbeing), Badhas (troubles), Avayogas like Kemadruma, Kalasarpa, Sakata, Jataka bhanga yogas, etc, which are possible in the horoscopes, depending on the past karmas. As a result of these, a person keeps suffering in life in one or the other way. When each of these special combinations present in a horoscope is examined in detail for its results, we get clear clues regarding the scale of Yoga or the severity of an affliction. If the adverse influences are more, it means that more sins are committed in past lives as a result of which, more serious problems and sufferings are encountered by a native in his present life. Lesser the adversities in a chart, fewer are the sins and lesser are the pains, problems and sufferings. Undoubtedly, absence of any blemish in the chart is an excellent thing that could happen to a native in life, as it ensures problem-free life.

Knowing the Divine Grace
According to Vedic belief, each and everything in our lives (rather, the whole universe) is controlled by ‘the Divine Will’ and, nothing happens in our lives without ‘his Grace’, although within the limits of Providence, set by our past karmas. It means to say that even if a person has to get relief from his problems in life, it is absolutely necessary that he is blessed by the Grace of the Divine, which paves way for the human effort to bear fruits. The presence of Divine Grace in a chart provides the basic strength that is required to the native to endure his pains and problems, and tide over the difficult times with more courage and confidence. Besides, it facilitates the native in getting ‘the right help from the right people’ for

Before assessing the possibility of remedy in a horoscope, it is necessary to know whether it possesses any of the combinations which promise the Divine Grace to a native, so that we would be able to understand whether the path of the remedy would be easy or difficult and whether the native would be blessed with ultimate success or not.



overcoming the difficulties. Hence, before assessing the possibility of remedy in a horoscope, it is necessary to know whether it possesses any of the combinations which promise the Divine Grace to a native, so that we would be able to understand whether the path of the remedy would be easy or difficult and whether the native would be blessed with ultimate success or not.

According to Jataka Deshmarga (Chapter 16, Verse 7&8), one’s Divine Grace should be determined through the presence of the following special factors in a nativity :
i) Birth in Vargottamamsa.
ii) Occupancy of benefics in veshisthana (2nd house to Sun).
iii) Presence of benefics in Kendra and Trikona Rasis.
iv) Karakas occupying Kendra, positions with respect to the Ascendant or Moon.
v) Presence of Vasumathi, Mahabhagya , Mahapurusha yogas, etc.
vi) Presence of strong benefics in 9th house.
vii) Strength of 9th house itself.
In addition, we find the following points in Jataka Deshmarga (Chapter 16):

i) The native in whose birth chart the lord of 9th house is posited in the Ascendant, the 3rd or the 9th house itself and is also strong or exalted simultaneously, is a shreshta manava i.e., a great person. (Verse 9).
ii) A native’s Punya (religious merit) or Papa (sin) should be determined through the presence of benefics or malefics in the 9th house or their aspect over that house respectively (Verse 10).

These clues are very useful in practical cases, in assessing the basic potential for remedy in a nativity. It is needless to emphasize that a native whose horoscope has more number of these combinations indicating the Divine Grace would eventually be a blessed person in one or the other way. Even if a problem is encountered, it would be temporary only. In other words, the presence of Divine Grace in a chart ensures remedy by ‘a smooth track’, without much pains or sufferings and hence, it is desirable in a horoscope.

Assessing the potential for remedying the problems

The possibility of a remedy depends on one more important factor i.e., the nature and gravity of the sins committed in past lives. According to Dharma Shastras, Sins (papas) are committed in three ways viz., Manasaa (with the mind), Vaachaa (with words) and Kaayena (with the body). The results of manasika papas are suffered by the mind, those of vaachika papas by word and those of kaayika papas with the body. The results of these papas are experienced either in the present birth or in paraloka or in future birth, or some now and some later. According to Prasna Marga, there will be signs such as physical or mental deformities or diseases in the human beings as reminders of their past sins (Chapter 23). The Smritis (Eg. Manu Smriti, Yagnavalkiya smrithi, Parashara smriti, etc) classify sins into 5 Maha-pa-thakas (great sins), 47 upa-paathakas (sub-sins) and hundreds of Shareeraka papas (bodily sins).

According to Karma theory, these sins are further classified into 3 types as follows :

1.Dhruda Karma : Sins, which are very serious and cause permanent adverse results, for which no remedy will be effective, in changing the adversity. The Maha-paatakas and upapaatakas may be included in this category.

2.Dhrudaadhruda Karma : Sins, which are not so serious as above, but still deserve punishment for some time and cause semi- permanent adverse results for a fixed duration of time and then allow relief from it afterwards. In such cases only, remedies work for mitigating the negative results. The shareerika and Vaachika papas may be included in this category.

3.Adhruda Karma : Sins, which are not serious and cause temporary and negligible adverse results for a short time, for which either no remedy is generally required or the problem itself occurs with a remedy also. The manasika papas, which do not cause serious physical damages, may be grouped under this category.



In KP Reader Vol. II (Pages – 30 to 33), Prof. K.S.Krishnamurthy provides the following clues for identifying these karmas in the horoscopes, based on the operating Dasa periods and Sub-periods at the time of consultancy :

  • In the horoscopes of those who have done Dhruda karma, the Dasanatha, the Bhuktinatha, Lagna and Moon will be devoid of the benefic aspect from Jupiter and from the lord of the 9th house, which indicates the virtuous deeds done in the previous birth.

  • In the horoscopes of those, who have done Dhruda Aadhruda Karma, either the Lagna or Moon or Dasanatha or Bhuktinatha will receive favourable aspects from either Jupiter or lord of 9th house or both.
  • In the horoscopes of those, who have done Adhruda Karma, Guru or lord of 9th house will be in the Lagna or conjoined with Moon or Dasanatha or Bhuktinatha. Such people will enjoy life, though they do not perform any shanthi nor pray nor donate for the good cause in this birth.

This clue is found to be very useful. But, the following rule (based on the above mentioned clue and borne out of my experience of practicing Astrology for over the past 1½ decades) is found to be very effective in assessing the potential for remedy in a horoscope: “In any nativity, if there is any connection (five levels of sambandha as per Phaladeepika (sl.30, ch.15)) among the three trines and their lords with Sun, Moon, Jupiter and the 11th house or its lord, then the native will perform suitable remedies during the associated Dasa periods and sub-periods, which either redress or mitigate effectively the problems faced by the native in different areas of his life for which those remedies are performed by him”. This rule is tested in hundreds of charts and found to be 100% correct in all cases. As corollaries to this rule, the following points are also to be remembered :

  • i) Out of the 11 parameters mentioned above, if 6 or more get inter-connected, then the remedy works fast and the native would be able to feel the difference in a short duration of time.

  • If 3 to 5 parameters get inter-connected, then the remedy works, only after a cognizable delay and the native would be able to feel the difference in a few months.

  • iii) If less than 3 parameters only get interconnected, then the remedy works, only after a long delay and the native would still be able to feel the difference when the change results to him.

  • iv) If there is no such inter-connection at all, there is a remote possibility of any remedy.

  • v) When the interconnection is purely related to the planet Moon, then the native would only derive mental satisfaction by performing the remedies although there may/may not be any material benefits from the remedies performed.

  • vi) The involvement of 11th house or its lord in the inter-connections would ensure accomplishment of the purpose, for which a purpose-oriented remedy was performed.

  • vii) The favourable link of 3rd house/its lord with these parameters would render additional support in orienting the native’s effort to the desired direction.

Thus, before examining the possibility of a remedy in a horoscope, it is advisable to first trace and understand the past karmic influences in a chart, which happen to be the trouble-makers in our lives. Also, in order to know the possibility of remedies to our problems, we must first find out whether a native is supported by the Divine Grace for performing the remedies and then we must examine whether his efforts in performing remedies would be effective or not by using the rules given above.

When one is suffering due to various reasons, an apprehension crops up invariably and keeps boggling one’s mind as to how long the problems would continue and one would certainly be longing for its end. Quite obviously, under such circumstances, the person concerned would be very anxious to know his future as well. If this anxiety is to be cleared as an Astrologer, we need to examine his horoscope for certain additional clues besides identifying the potential for relief and remedy in the chart. The factors indicating whether a native is generally lucky or unfortunate, whether there are any combinations which mar the horoscope in general, whether there is any possibility of the adverse results of one planet getting neutralized by another planet, etc need to be known in order to assess whether the native would be ultimately free from his problems or not. The following points would be very useful for this purpose :

If Jupiter,Venus and Mercury are posited in the Ascendant,10th, 5th, 4th and/or 9th houses (jointly or severally), they will remove one lakh blemishes in the chart, just as the rising Sun dispels the darkness. Jupiter cancels all the evils of the native created by the planets, if posited in the Ascendant and is powerful in Shadvargas remaining without Combustion.



1. Bhagyavan ( lucky person): Generally, some people are very lucky in life and get what they desire, if the following combinations are present in their horoscopes :

i) The Ascendant is strong by the influence of either benefic Jupiter or its lord or the occupancy of exalted/friendly planets in it, without the direct influence of any inimical or debilitated planet.

ii) There is any of the special combination like Pancha Mahapurusha yogas, Dharma- Karmadhipatya Rajayoga and other Rajayogas, etc,

iii) If the 5th house from the Ascendant and Moon-sign are Movable signs and Moon occupies the 5th house, then the native will enjoy a wealthy and comfortable life, using the riches accumulated by his father also.

iv) If 9th lord is strongly posited in the chart and its sign dispositor occupies an angular house, then the native will live happily in his house with all comforts, and his father will be a very rich and famous person.

v) All malefic planets are posited in Upachaya houses (3,6,11).

vi)Trines are occupied by benefic planets.

vii) Angles are occupied by debilitated planets with the aspect of benefics, etc.,

viii) If 9th lord is in own house or occupies 7th or 11th house along with its lord, which happens to be its friend or if 7th & 11th lords are conjoined with benefics in friendly houses or if 9th lord and Ascendant lord are conjoined in the houses of benefic planets, then the native will live as a rich and wealthy man, till the end of his life.



The native having any of the above combinations is to be considered as a Bhagyavan, as he would be generally favoured by Fate. More the number of combinations better would be his luck. The problems, if any, faced by him would be of temporary nature, as the adverse results are experienced, only in certain unfavourable Dasa periods; once the unfavourable period ends, the problems will also come to an end. Hence, it should be first checked from the horoscope whether the problems are temporary and also, as to when it would come to an end (based on Dasa periods). In such cases, the fore-knowledge that the problem is a temporary one is itself very re-assuring and will boost the morale of the native. If they perform suitable remedial measures, it would surely reduce the severity of the pains and sufferings.

2. Sadha dukkhi (always unhappy): A few persons always remain unhappy about something or the other in life. They would not be able to see the brighter side of things and would always be worried about almost everything in their lives owing to the following combinations in their charts :

i. Malefic planets posited in the Ascendant.
ii. 4th house and 4th lord under the influence of malefic planets.
iii. 4th lord posited in the Navamsa of malefics and in debilitation.
iv. Sun and Mars are conjoined in the chart with 4th lord occupying a malefic amsa, without any benefic aspects.
v. Sun, Rahu and Mercury posited in the 5th house with Mars in the 4th and Saturn in the 8th house.
vi. Saturn posited in the Ascendant, and Mars occupying the 6th house with Rahu in the 8th house.
vii. Lagnalord or Moon hemmed between malefic planets.
viii. A native will be devoid of happiness, if the Ascendant lord is in the 4th house, along with a debilitated planet or is in debility or is with Sun or other malefics.
ix. If Saturn is endowed with strength in the Ascendant and acquires 5 or 6 benefic dots in its Binnaashtakavarga, then the native will incur abundant grief, right from his birth and will lose his kinsfolk (untimely).
x. If the Ascendant, 5th and 10th house lords are


Evil effects of planets get cancelled under the following conditions :
i. If Rahu is posited in 3rd, 6th or 11th house, aspected by benefic planets.

ii. If all planets are posited in sheershodaya (rising by head) signs with strength.

iii. If a strong benefic is located in the Ascendant and is aspected by benefics.

iv. If all planets are strong and located in own houses, and at the time of birth, the sky is full of mild fragrance without dust and the clouds are glittering and also the birth time is auspicious.



friendly and are strongly posited in Trines or Angular houses in conjunction with benefic planets, then the native attains mukthi (emancipation). But, if this scheme changes and there is predominantly malefic and inimical influences in these areas, then the native is a papi (sinner), destined to suffer.
  • xi. If Kendra and Trikona lords in a chart are afflicted by the dussthana (6,8,12) lords anywhere in the horoscope, then the native becomes a Avayogi (unfortunate being) and experiences more problems and sufferings than good.
  • xii. If Venus is posited in the 4th house in conjunction with/aspected by malefics or if 4th lord and Venus are posited in dussthana (6,8,12) or in their inimical or debilitation signs, then the native becomes ‘Sada dukkhi’(always unhappy).


NOTE : The adverse results of the above combinations will be significantly reduced by the direct influence of benefic planets or trikona lords or concerned house-lords. The natives having the above combinations in their chart would be generally restless and disturbed. They may frequently try to do something or the other, in order to find some peace; but they may finally meet with despair. As a result, they would be fretting and fuming in almost every area of life. When there is any combination for providing relief, if suitable remedies are performed based on the planetary combinations, it may help in channelizing the energy properly and reduce the gravity of the problem. Otherwise, they must be suitably advised to realize and accept the superseding effect of their fate, without trying to work against it. It would be better for them to plan and concentrate their energy on progressive efforts, rather than spending it in counter-productive activities.

Dosha Nivarana (Removal of doshas) by Planets:

Each of the planets becomes capable of providing some relief to the native from the adverse effects of other planets if they are strong, well-placed and work as benefics in the chart.
The following points are also to be kept in mind while examining a chart, for knowing its potential for remedying the problems:

a) If Jupiter is auspicious in the chart & Mercury is benefic and capable of giving auspicious results, the Dosha (blemish) caused by Rahu is reduced. If Mercury is also inauspicious, then a benefic Saturn is capable of spoiling the negative effects of both Rahu and Mercury.

b) If Rahu, Mercury & Saturn are inauspicious, a benefic Mars is capable of spoiling the negative effects of these 4 planets.

c) Venus neutralises the negative effects of Rahu, Mercury, Saturn and Mars.

d) Jupiter neutralizes the negative effects of Rahu, Mercury, Saturn, Mars and Venus.

e) If Rahu, Mercury, Saturn, Mars, Venus and Jupiter are all inauspicious, Moon is capable of neutralizing their ill-effects.

f) If Rahu, Mercury, Saturn, Mars, Venus, Jupiter & Moon are inauspicious, Sun is capable of neutralizing their ill-effects.

g) Even if Ketu is inauspicious along with all other 7 planets, Sun alone is capable of neutralizing the illeffects of the 8 planets. For this, Sun should be strong and well posited in the horoscope and should be capable of giving auspicious results to the native. (Eg. Strong Sun in Kendras/Trikonas).

h) If Jupiter, Venus and Mercury are posited in the Ascendant,10th, 5th, 4th and/or 9th houses (jointly or severally), they will remove one lakh blemishes in the chart, just as the rising Sun dispels the darkness.

i) Jupiter cancels all the evils of the native created by the planets, if posited in the Ascendant and is powerful in Shadvargas remaining without Combustion.

j) The evils created by planets are cancelled, if the Ascendant is in the sign of benefic planets with benefic planets or aspected by benefics and benefics are strong and malefics are without strength in the horoscope.

k) If both the benefic and malefic planets are located in benefic Vargas (divisional placements) and are aspected by benefics, then they cancel the evil effects to the native.

l) The evil effects of planets are also cancelled under the following conditions:

iv. If Rahu is posited in 3rd, 6th or 11th house, aspected by benefic planets.

v. If all planets are posited in sheershodaya (rising by head) signs with strength.
vi. If a strong benefic is located in the Ascendant and is aspected by benefics.
iv. If all planets are strong and located in own houses, and at the time of birth, the sky is full of mild fragrance without dust and the clouds are glittering and also the birth time is auspicious.

While applying the above points, it must be remembered that the effectiveness of the planet supposed to provide relief is also subject to many conditions like its role in the chart, general dignity, relative strength when compared with other afflicting planets, etc. Hence, these points are to be applied judiciously, depending on the strength and weaknesses of the planets causing afflictions vis-a-vis those expected to neutralize their adverse effects.

4. Jataka Bhanga Yogas : In some horoscopes, certain powerful Avayogas are caused, which are capable of imbalancing even the good yogas present in the chart. Such yogas have been called as ‘Jataka Bhanga Yogas’. These adverse combinations have been grouped under the following 6 heads :

a) Rajayoga bhangas : These are the combinations resulting in either the cancellation or the neutralization of the Rajayogas present in the chart.

b) Preshya Yogas : These combinations cause servitude (i.,e., being at another’s beck and call) besides causing evil-mindedness.

c) Daridra Yogas : These combinations result in poverty and penury.

d) Reka Yogas : These combinations create undesirable effects in almost all areas of life.

e) Angaheena Yogas : The combinations create bodily deformities.

f) Roga Yogas : These combinations cause serious illnesses.


Exhaustive details of these avayogas/yogas are available in Hora Sara (ch.24), Jataka Parijata (Ch.6), Shambu Hora Prakasha (Ch.19), Uttara Kalamruta (ch4), Phaladeepika (Chapter 6, 15, 16,etc), Saravali, Jataka Tatwa, Brihat Parashara Hora, etc. Readers are requested to refer to these classics for further details. It must be noted that many of these yogas are very serious in nature and hence, they may not allow any relief to the native. However, an effort is to be made to understand the impact of these adversities on the other good yogas in the chart and it must be assessed whether good or bad yogas will finally prevail, or both are possible. The results should be pronounced, only after such evaluation. Otherwise, the conclusions may be erroneous and misleading.

Although hundreds of such combinations are discussed in classics, only the most important ones were pointed out above, under these 4 special heads for the benefit of the readers.
A thorough study of the classics would be very useful, for acquiring further depth in the subject.
Now, let us discuss a few case-studies

Case-study 1 : Suggested remedies worked within a short duration of time.



This is the horoscope of a Male. He consulted the author on 14 March 2009 in Jupiter Dasa and Rahu Bhukthi, for relief from problems in health and profession. He was suffering from stomach ulcers and stiffness of limbs and had lost his job in Hotel Industry. On a detailed analysis of the horoscope, the following reasons were identified for his problems :

1. Health : The ascendant is occupied by 6th lord Mercury in retrogression and is afflicted by Ketu there. This is one of the Roga yogas, causing ulcers in the body. Mars, lord of the Ascendant, is in the 3rd house exchanging sign with 3rd & 6th lord and aspects the Rogasthana. The aspects of Mars on the 9th & 10th houses and that of Saturn on the 10th house add to the problem. This creates a direct link between the Ascendant (body) and 6th house (disease). Therefore, the native had also developed cramps in fingers in his hands and legs, which had also affected his mobility significantly.

2. Profession : The 10th house is occupied by Moon. 10th lord Saturn (which is also the 11th lord and a Badhaka) is in the 8th house in retrogression and aspects the 10th house. Mars (Lord of Ascendant & 8th house) also aspects 10th house. The simultaneous aspect of both Mars & Saturn on the 10th house had created problems in profession, as they are directly related to the 8th house and the native had hurriedly resigned his job in a Hotel in a fit of rage, provoked by the unreasonable (as alleged by the native) instructions of his boss.

Before suggesting any remedy, its possibilities were examined in the chart and the following relevant points were noted :
  • Jupiter (9th & 12th lord) is in the 5th house in a friend’s house and aspects both the 9th house and the Ascendant. This indicates Divine Grace to the native to some extent. Also, 9th lord’s aspect on the Ascendant implies that the native had performed dhrida Adhrida karma in past lives, which means that the native is destined to have some sufferings in this life, after which he would find relief also.

  • The affliction of the Ascendant by Mercury in retrogression along with Ketu and occupancy of Mars in the 3rd house exchanging sign with Mercury makes the native a ‘sada dukkhi’. But, Jupiter, the planet of Divine Grace, aspects both the Ascendant and 9th house from 5th house. Besides, 4th lord Moon is occupying the 10th house and aspects the 4th house. Thus, the benefic influence of Jupiter on the Ascendant and that of Moon on the 4th house protect the native from such a problem. But, the badhaka Saturn (which is in retrogression in the 8th house) aspects both Jupiter and Moon, which creates a restrictive effect on both of them, which only reduces the problem without neutralizing it fully.

  • There is no combination in the chart, which helps in boosting the native’s general luck. Instead, the 9th lord (also 12th lord) is retrograde in the 5th and aspects the 9th house, along with 8th lord Mars (also lord of Ascendant). This creates a sort of affliction only to the 9th house and does not augur well for the native’s luck.

  • 5th lord Sun is occupying the 2nd house, along with its lord Venus.

  • 9th house is empty; but, it is aspected by the lord of Ascendant Mars, along with 9th lord.

  • Sun is the sign-dispositor of Jupiter. Saturn which happens to be the sign-dispositor of Moon aspects both Sun and Jupiter.



Thus, in this chart, there are multiple interlinks among the three trines and their lords with Sun, Moon, Jupiter, 11th house and its lord Saturn, which promise the possibility of performing remedies and getting rid of the problems, within a short duration of time. As such, the native was suggested suitable remedies and he started performing them immediately and found relief from his health problems within a few months. As regards profession, he was advised to change his line from Hotel Industry and presently, he is practising as a Vasthu Consultant.

Case Study 2 : Suggested remedies worked fast



This is the horoscope of a Male. He consulted the author during May 2009 in his Jupiter Dasa and Rahu Bhukthi. As reported, he was dealing with sales and service of computer peripherals and was not doing well in his business. As a result, he was facing financial problems due to the loans that he had taken. A detailed analysis of the horoscope revealed the following reasons for his problems :

  • The Ascendant is Taurus and the 3rd lord Moon and 4th lord Sun are posited in it. The remaining 3 angular houses (i.e., 4, 7& 10) are empty and are not having any aspects. The lord of Ascendant Venus is in 3rd house in parivartana (exchange of sign) with 3rd lord Moon and is conjoined with 8th and 11th lord Jupiter there. This makes the Kendras somewhat weak in the horoscope and all these combinations confer only mild benefic results.

  • Out of the trines, 5th house is occupied by a natural malefic Mars (7th & 12th lord) and it aspects 11th house, where 9th & 10th lord Saturn is posited. The 2nd &5th lord Mercury in 2nd house and 9th & 10th Lord Saturn in 11th house are causing moderate dhanayogas. Except these, the horoscope is not having any favourable interlinks among the Angles and trines in the chart, which deprives the native of any strong Rajayoga.

  • The 9th house is empty and is aspected by two natural benefics Venus and Jupiter. But, for both these planets, one house out of their dual lordships is a Dussthana which partially afflicts both the 9th and 11th houses. The 11th house is having the simultaneous aspects of the two 1st rate malefics viz., Mars and Saturn with Saturn being the badhaka. These combinations affect both the luck and income of the native.

  • The possibilities of remedy were explored and the following points were observed :
    • The presence of un-afflicted Mercury in the 2nd house (vesi-sthana) and the aspect of strong Jupiter on the 9th house, along with Venus indicate Divine Grace to the native.

    • The Ascendant and Moon are receiving the aspect of 9th lord Saturn, which means that the native has done some dhrida Adhruda karma in the past life, and the fruits of which shall be reaped in this birth.
    • Out of the 11 interlinks indicating the possibility of remedy, the following seven dispositions are fulfilled in the chart :

    • i) 11th lord aspects 11th house and also, 9th house & its Lord

    • ii) 9th lord is aspecting the Ascendant, Sun and Moon

    • iii) Ascendant lord Venus aspects 9th house. This indicates that the native would be able to tide-over his problems and that the remedy works fast and the native would be able to feel the difference in a short duration of time.



    As already said, the native was running Jupiter Dasa and Rahu Bhukthi. The Dasa lord was occupying the 3rd house and the Bhukthi lord was occupying the 12th house. Both these planets together created an inter-link among 3rd, 8th & 12th houses of the chart.
    This indicated the possibility of shifting to a new environment (3,12) for the native, along with movement/loss of the house in which he was living. The association (conjunction) of 6th lord Venus with the Dasa lord Jupiter and their combined aspect on the 9th house indicated the affliction to his luck (9th) due to loans (6th). Hence, the native was advised to sell his father’s property bequeathed to him and clear all his loans and purchase an apartment using the balance of amount from the sale, which he did during August 2009 itself and happily moved to his new flat during September 2009.

    Case Study 3: Remedies could not work fast



    This is the horoscope of a Male, who consulted the author during July 1999 in his Jupiter Dasa and Ketu Bhukti for delay in birth of children, even after 6 years of marriage. He also complained of problems in the family and finance. An analysis of the horoscope revealed the following :

    1) Delay in child birth was due to afflictions to both the Principal (5th) and Supporting (2nd & 11th) houses, governing the child birth, as follows :
    • Capricorn being the Ascendant, its lord Saturn is in own house in the 2nd house in retrograde motion. This swasthana vakra gathi (retrogression in own house) of Saturn spoils both the internal and external significations of the 2nd house fully.

    • Although 7th lord Moon is exalted in the 5th house, it is afflicted by its conjunction with Rahu (Sarpa Dosha) and aspect of 6th lord Mercury.

    • 11th house is afflicted by the occupancy of Ketu & Mercury there, with 11th lord Mars going to 12th house and aspected by the retrograde 12th lord Jupiter.

      2) Problems in Family and finance were due to the following :
    • Afflictions to 2nd & 11th houses as mentioned above.

    • 4th house (comfort) afflicted by the simultaneous aspects of 8th lord Sun and retrograde Saturn, making the native always unhappy.

    • Absence of any strong yoga in the chart. The horoscope was examined for remedial possibilities and the following were noted :
    • The horoscope has more adverse combinations than good ones.

    • All planets in the chart are either afflicted or badly placed.

    • Both the trines and angular houses of the chart do not have any significant benefic influences to give him any sort of remarkable good results, except 7th lord Moon in the 5th (which is also afflicted by Rahu) and 8th lord Sun in debilitation sign in the 10th house.

    • The horoscope does not possess any of the combinations indicating Divine Grace.

    • The Dasa lord Jupiter, Bhukti lord Ketu, Ascendant and Moon are devoid of any benefic aspects which indicates that the native had done some dhrida-karma in the previous birth, the fruits of which are to be endured in present life.
    • Out of the 11 interlinks indicating the possibility of remedy, the following three conditions are seen in the chart :

    • i) 9th lord in 11th house and aspecting 5th house and Moon posited there in. But, both Moon and 9th lord are afflicted.

    • ii) Retrograde Jupiter is aspecting retrograde Ascendant lord. As Jupiter is not a benefic planet to Capricorn Ascendant, the effective interlinks become less than three.



    In view of the above, it was felt that the native had the chances of remedy working, only after a long delay and that the native would still be able to feel the difference, when the change results to him. Despite suggesting many remedial measures, the native did not perform any of them, except the one recommended for Sarpa Dosha. After nearly five years, the native was blessed with birth of twins - a boy and a girl- on 25 Aug. 2004 and his family and financial problems continued till his death on 27 April 2011.
