Garbshishta Planets play prominent roles in life
By Anil Aggarwala

Garbshishta planets are the Mahadasa and the Antardasa lords at birth. Garbshishta planets assume a lot of importance in a chart, indicating what we are going to attain in our life, any disease with which we are going to suffer, the span of life, achievement , the losses, etc. All these are decided by these planets only. They therefore acquire a special dimension and are the seeds of our life.

ASTROLOGY is a scientific study and application of the language of heavenly bodies .These heavenly bodies determined on the basis of astronomy and mathematics, are mapped in the form of a sky-map called the Horoscope. At the time of birth of a native, the planetary configurations in the transit are freezed, and the soul enters from the 5th house carrying a bag having different compartments with Sanchit Karmas in the form of Dasas. The different Dasas, which are dependent upon our previous karmas, generate the heat to stimulate the different planets to give the results. The Transit planets add heat to the planets to be activated and stimulated. The study of the 5th house/lord therefore acquires a special dimension along with Garbshishta planets (Mahadasa and Antardasa lords at Birth).

After the 5th house, it moves in the 4th house, where the development of the Body of the child takes Place The Atma, after completing its cycle in the human body, exits the body from the 9th house; hence life is like a Pendulum of clock, which vibrates between the 5,7 and 9 houses, its fulcrum being the Lagna. When the Atma exits the body from the 9th house, the Clock comes to a standstill and connects the Lagna and the 7th house (maraka house). Our Maharishis have therefore given importance to the houses -- lagna, 5, 7 and 9 as follows:

Being the Fulcrum of the Pendulum in the Clock, it is the most Important house and governs the life of the human being, Lagna is also the Shooka shamsthan of the Lagna. It is the 9th house from the 5th house and 5th house from the 9thhouse. It is the strongest Kendra and the strongest Trikona (Shookshamsthan acts like the reservoir of the Concerned house, like 7th house is the 10th from the 10th house and shows the reservoir of the 10th house, reordering levels of the house).

5th House
As mentioned above, Atma enters the Horoscope from the 5thhouse and the Pendulum keeps on touching the 5th house at regular intervals of time (in Seconds). 5th house is also the shooksham house of the 9thhouse. Since it governs the Poorva Janma Karma , the Pendulum of the Clock shows that our Life is connected to our Poorva Janma Karma It represents the Sanchita Poorva Punya i.e. is accumulation of past life Karmas. It should be well fortified and it reflects the ĎBank Balanceí, as far as our Karmas are concerned. Our Poorva Karmas effect our present life in every respect; hence 5th house acquires a special dimension. The number of progeny one will get is also decided by this house and for this reason, it is also called the Putra Bhava.
5th house also shows how far our Atma is advanced in the realm of spirituality, not only this, it can further reveal how far a person is capable of enhancing the spiritual stature (learning, mantras, etc.)

Intelligence :
5th house indicates how intelligent a person is and how sharp is the grasping power

Pitru Bhava : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa Since the 5th house is the 9th from the 9th, it is also the house of forefathers. Presence of malefic in this house shows Pitru Dosh.

Sacred knowledge: It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa 5th house signifies sacred Knowledge one can acquire in this Life, since the Trikonasthan of the Triangular Point of the Triangle of Dharma.

Inclination towards studies : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa 5th house is the Home of Learning.

Affliction to Mother : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa Since 5th is the 2nd house from the 4th house , which is the House of mother, it causes affliction to mother. Any malefic Influence to this house and Moon increases the affliction for mother.

Younger Brotherís success and associations : 5th house being the 3rdfrom the 3rd house, it signifies success through own efforts.

Spirtual Commitments : The 5th house indicates the belief one has towards oneís religion, The influence of malefics and benefics will sway accordingly.

Mantra Shakti and Siddhi : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa Evocation to God, for invoking Higher powers and attain Siddhi.

Sacred Journeys : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa Being the 9th house from the 9th house, which is also connected to pilgrimages.

Holy Dip : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa If the 5th house is associated with Watery sign or a Planet and at the same time associated with the 9th house , then the native is inclined towards taking Holy Dips in Tirthas.

Devalaya Pratishta : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa 5th house indicates whether the Native will be able to erect a temple or instrumental in making a holy sanctuary.

Devata Pratishta : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa Pious Person, who would install a Idol in a temple and not the Temple as above.

Speculation : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.DasaEarning out of Speculation is seen from the 5th house.

Pad-chuti : It is also the house of Pad-chuti.Dasa of afflicted 5th house, 5th lord and Mid Cusp Lord of 5th Lord brings adversity in life and profession. If well fortified, then success and status would rise and fame, education, self-respect etc. would all come from this house. (Pad-chuti is rise or fall in profession, since 5th house is the 8th house from the 10th house. Therefore, 5th lordís dasa acquires more importance, depending on good or bad influences on the 5th house/lord).

Strength of the 5th house
The following parameters are indicative of a well fortified 5th house/lord
1.5th house should have maximum number of Ashtakvarga Bindus and strong in Shadbala.
2.5th lord should be well placed, not connected to 6, 8 or 12 houses.
3.5th house should be occupied / aspected by benefics.
4.5th house is the seed of success and failure in our life. The ultimate achievement depends upon the 5th house, 5th lord, Mid Cusp Lord of 5th house. This Mid Cusp Lord of the 5th house should be connected to a Yogakaraka planet. In case 5th lord is not a yogkarkaplanet, then it should be connected to Lagna lord, or the 5th lord.
5.If Mid cusp Lord of 5th house connected to 3,6,8 or the 12th house or conjoined with enemy or lost in planetary war, then it becomes evident of the person having Poorva Punya Dosha.
6.Third house is also taken into consideration, as benefics in the 3rd ,6th,8th and 12th house get set and are the negative signs for benefics to be placed in these houses from the Natural Zodiac, from the MoolTrikona sign and in the Rasi Chart.
7.If 5th lord is debilitated, or 5th house has a debilitated planet, then it become weak and afflicted.
8.If 5th house is a Dagdha Rasi, then affliction arises.
9.If 5th house has a Avyogi planet, then also it gets afflicted.

The native will not have success or happiness and will strive hard in life, if the 5th house is not strong. For the purpose of Parihar for Poorva Punya dosha, one has to see the Navamsa and see where the 5th lord of the Rasi chart is placed; then that Lordís deity is to be propitiated. Rahuís placement in the signs 3,5,6 and 8 is not good for a female. These are Aputrabhav and not considered pious for the family. 5th house is the Shooksham-sthan of the 9th house, being the 9th from the 9th; it signifies the Pitru Dosha, if it has any malefic influence. It means that the native had in some way or the other had performed an act, that was not good and therefore, incurred the wrath of the forefathers. The magnitude of this wrath can be analysed by the gravity of the bad influence on the house and the 5th lord.

Afflictions to the 5th house
Affliction in respect to Sun-Pitru Dosha. Affliction with respect to Rahu-Putra Dosha.
Affliction in respect to Jupiter - Putra dosha and Deva Dosha.
Affliction in respect to Saturn-Kuladevata Dosha.
Affliction due to Venus - Matru or associated Goddess' Dosha.

5th house has affliction as stated above, then the native has Poorva Janma Dosha. Through Dasa at birth and the connection of the 5th house / 5th lord to the Lagna / Lagna Lord, one can come to know if a native is immedaitely born after previous Janmaís death or not. If there is no connection, then the soul was wandering and this is not a good indication in this Janma for success and tranquility.

7th house
The Clock Pendulum crosses to and fro from this point .This house gets permanantly connected to Lagna, when the Atma exits the world and then the Pendulum of the Clock stops its movement. 7th being the Shooksham-sthan of 10th from 10th house and 4th from 4th house. As per age and longevity of the native, the 7th house works as Maraka-sthana.

9th house
This house, where the Pendulum of the Clock touches at regular invervals of Seconds, is the Shookshmasthan of the 5th house, being the 9th from the 9th and also the house from where the atma exits the body. It is the House of Dharma.
From the above, we can come to a conclusion that the Atma is connected to the Dharma Triangle of the 1, 5 and 9 Houses and the Shooksham-sthans of the Kendras, If these houses are placed well or afflicted, then the rewards one will get vary accordingly. Hence, the Shooksham-sthan, Lagna, 5th house, 9th house, 7th house are the most important houses in the horoscope, since they cover all the Kendras as well as the Trikonas.

The Motion of the Pendulum keeps on connecting the above Shookasham-sthans of the Kendra and the Trikona, thereby indicating that our life is connected to these houses and also coonetced to our Poorva punya and the Dharma in this Life. Hence the strength of these houses is of utmost importance, specially the 5th house, for good fructifications, if connected to the 10thhouse. Atma enters from the 5th house; the PoorvaJanma Karma therefore acquires a special dimension; for this reason the Garbshista planets depict the PoorvaJanma Karmas which acquire a lot of importance in our life and play a major role. They are the seeds of our life and longevity in a capsule form. Whatever is promised by these planets (good and bad) the native has to go through the same. Garbshishta planets are the MahaDasa and the Antardasa lords at birth.
These planets have to be analysed in the following Varga charts:

1. Rasi Chart D1: I have explaind above the importance of the Rasi chart.
2. Navamsa D9: the Shookasham of the Rasi chart.
3. Drekkanna Chart D3: The heights a native can reach, Genetic Problems, Growth, Penance one has to do in this life, medicine, Coborns etc.
4. Dwadasamsa-D12: Genetic conditions, energy, Potential, destination this life, road map in this life, Lotus Feet of Lord Krishna.

Garbshishta planets assume a lot of importance in a chart, indicating what we are going to attain in our life, any disease with which we are going to suffer, the span of life, achievement, the losses, etc. All these are decided by these planets only. They therefore acquire a special dimension and are the seeds of our life.
1.Connection of these 2 planets (lords of mahadasa and bhukti at birth) with the 6th,8th,12th lords and malefics or sandwitched between malefics or losing strength in the Rasi chart and Vargas, then the native will have a very miserable and uneventful life. By this, we do not mean that Rahu or Saturn or a Krur graha or Paap graha spell doom for the native. If these grahas own good houses and get associated with good planets or yogakarakas, then they attain immense strength, and life will therefore have prosperity and upward movement, though there could be initial hindrances.


Garbshishta Dasa-bhukti-antara period at birth:
Mercury-Saturn-Rahu: 7 months 29 days [Less than one year is not good, since Moon is in Gandantha] Saturn and Mercury are in miserable condition. But Saturn gets relief, as in Pushkar Navamsa and also as a Malefic in Sandhi. Mercury also is in Pushkar Navamsa.

Mercury, Saturn and Rahu are neither connected to Lagna or the Lagna Lord, Moon, 5th house or 5th lord Mars. (Rahu aspected by lagna lord Moon) Hence the native will not get any success and tranquility in life, though he may be born to very rich parents, Since there is association between Mercury and Jupiter (Exchange of Houses), the native will progress after the death of the father. (Native's father might have prospered, when he is born).

The Garbshishta Planets are ill placed from the 4th house and 4th lord as well; hence there will be no permanency in life

The native has PoorvaPunya Dosha 5th house is like a door entering a house or a castle
1. Moon in debilitation in the 5th house
2. 5th lord in PaapKartari yoga
3. 5th lord Combusted
4. 5th lord in Gandantha

10th lord Mars is not connected to the Dasa-bhuktiantara lords at Birth and Mars is 2/12 from all these 3 planets. Hence, the native will suffer in his career in the dasa of Mars for 7 years, since Mars is also the 8th lord from the 10th house and also the lord of the 5th house and is afflicted badly. Mars dasa will be very Crucial. For Cancer Lagna, Mars being a Yoga Karaka, and not connected to dasa lords at birth and afflicted badly show that the native will suffer due to Poorva Janma Dosha in the Dasa of Mars. All his efforts will go in vain and he may lose the Commercial Properties in this dasa, since the Dasa Lord Mercury at Birth is also afflicted badly and 2/ 12 from the Mars, Karaka for Property. Mercury also denotes Commercial Properties.

Moon Dasa was also not good, since it is afflicting the 5th house, but placed well from the Dasa lord at Birth. Hence this Dasa was not very bad, but Moon- Sun period gave him losses. Since Sun and Saturn are in Bhandan Yoga in the 9th house and are in 2/12 axis with the 10th house and 10th lord Mars.

8th house (Aquarius) of Rasi chart is rising in Navamsa(D9) Such natives are unconventional in their approach in life and face miserable events in life till around the age of 42+3.

The native suffered huge losses in the periods of Moon-Mars and Moon-Sun. During Dasa of Mars, the native suffered huge losses and the business came to a standstill and had to close the business.

Rahu is connected to the debilitated Moon in the Rasi Chart and the Dispositor of Rahu i.e.Venus, is placed in the 8th house in the Rasi chart, which is also ill placed from the Garbshishta planets in the Rasi chart.Also Rahu is ill placed from the 10th house and its Lord Mars. Hence there was total closure of business in the dasa of Rahu. The native is presently running the dasa of Rahu. His children only earn for the family.

Rajyoga at Birth :
Jupiter and Mercury being in Kendra from each other, and in Exchange of Houses, conferred rise and fall of the native after fatherís death. It is considered very auspicious, when the Jupiter, Mercury, Venus are in the Kendra from the Garbshishta Planets and placed well in the Chart

Yogi Point :
(29:27:04 Aquarius) Addition of the Longitude of Sun, Moon and Pushya Nakshatra Point should not be in the 7th and 8th house (since the highest point in the Horoscope). If Placed in the Lagna, there are Rajyogas. The native rises to the highest levels in life. Dhirubhai Ambani of Reliance Group had Yogi Point in the Lagna, with lot of planets in the Lagna forming the Rajyogas.

Navamsa :
Only the 4th house is well placed. Jupiter aspects the Mars. The father of the native buys a huge property at his birth. With Sun posited in the Lagna, which is the 8th house of the Rasi Chart, the native lost his father, when he was only 24 years old.

(D3) Drekkana (happiness siblings)

Lagna has debilitated planet Mercury, showing that the native has Poorva Punya Dosha. The native will not be successful in life, without the Guidance of a Good Guru or his Spouse, who has to be virtous, since the Lagna Lord Jupiter is with Venus, the Karaka for spouse and marriage.

9th house is also in Rahu-Ketu axis along with Sun. 9th lord is badly afflicted in the Rasi chart. The native lost his father in the dasa of Venus-Mercury. From the 9th house, Venus is the 12th lord in the Drekkana chart. In the Rasi chart, Venus is placed in the 12th house from the 9th house and Sun, and is also the 8th lord from the 9th house.

Mercury is the 7th lord from the Sun and the 9th house in the Rasi Chart and is debilitated. In the Drekkana chart, Mercury is the 8th lord from the 9th house and Sun.

Hence from the above, we can say that the Role of the 5th house is immense along with the Garbshista Planets and are the seeds of our Life and must be seen in the Drekkana chart especially.

(D12)-Dwadasamsa Chart (Parents)

Rahu-Ketu in the 1/7 axis shows no happiness from parents. Lagna has Rahu and is aspected by Saturn the maraka for father. Ketu is aspected by Marsí 8th aspect, confirming that happiness from parents is missing. Again the role of Mercury and Saturn as Garbshishta planets.

2nd house has benefics indicating good tradition and social status of parents.
3rd house is Maraka house for parents and is aspected by Combusted Mars. 3rd Lord Moon is also aspected by Mars, specially signifying father.

5th lord Mercury is debilitated and is with Saturn (maraka lord for father) and aspects the Lagna. Saturn is the 2nd lord from the Sun and the 9th house. Hence from the above, it becomes crystal clear that the 5th house, along with Garbshishta Planets, play a major role in the life of a native.
