This article testifies this principle with practical examples. It will help you to understand why at times dasa of a functional malefic planet yields productive output, and why dasa of a functional benefic planet sometime goes in vain. <Click to read more>

3- Bhrigu Chakra with Cycle Ruler

Subject / Abstract:  The concept of 12-year cycle is not new in astrology. Parashara’s Sudarshan Chakra, Bhrigu’s 12-year cycle (Bhrigu Chakra Paddhati – BCP), Muntha in Varshaphala and ‘Profection’ of Greco-Roman and Perso-Arabic astrology are few well known predictive tools. However, repetition of 12-year cycle does not usually show repetition of events in life. The objective of this article is to expand the horizon of Bhrigu Chakra and assign the lord of every 12-year cycle. This plain predictive technique promises astonishing results. <Click to read more>

4- Kota Chakra and Professional Setback

Subject / Abstract:  Kota Chakra (कोट चक्र), also known as Durga Chakra (दुर्गा चक्र), is a classical Jyotish technique for transit of planets through 28 nakshatras, including Abhijit. Conventionally, the purpose of drawing the Kota Chakra is to determine the affliction (ariShTa अररष्ट), battle (raNa रण), death (maraNa मरण), and other difficulties attributed to the 8th house. And it is not a coincident that Kota (as real structure) is itself related to the 8th house of horoscope. Planetary transits through Kota Chakra may be analyzed for professional setback, transfer, termination, failure and fall from the position. <Click to read more>

7- When You Fall in Love

Subject / Abstract:  Followers of western astrology assign 5th and 11th houses for love and friendship respectively. However, traditional texts of Jyotish do not endorse this thesis (except in Tajaka school of astrology). Despite, many modern Vedic astrologers have espoused this notion without any hesitation. Ancient sages of India do consider 5th house as the abode of love, however not for the mundane or carnal love, but divine love: a love for creator or beloved deity, chanting the name of deity in love, reciting god’s name etc. This article also provides astrological combinations of successful and failed love affairs.   <Click to read more>

10- Yavana on Transit from Asc and Transit from Moon

Subject / Abstract:  In Jyotish, transit is generally considered from natal Moon (Chandra Rashi). The conventional good and bad transit placements are in fact ashtakavarga points of planets with respect to Moon. Some practitioners prefer to judge transit from natal Ascendant (Janma Lagna). While analyzing transit from natal Ascendant, they mistakenly apply good and bad transit placement that are attributed to natal Moon. According to ashtakavarga concept both are different reference points. Following are the transit results and delineations of 7 planets with respect to natal Ascendant and natal Moon that are culled from classical Jyotish text Yavana Jataka. <Click to read more>

11- نجوم کیا ہے اور کیا نہیں ہے

نجوم، فلکی اثرات جاننےکا ایک قدیم علم اور فن ہے۔ یہ صرف پیش گوئی کا نام نہیں۔ پیش گوئی، علم نجوم کا ایک حصہ ہے لیکن اس کا مترادف نہیں۔ میری رائے میں یہ علم دراصل تین چیزوں کے مجموعہ کا نام ہے۔ زائچہ بنانا، زائچہ پڑھنا اور صاحبِ زائچہ کی رہنمائی کرنا۔ سمجھنے کی بات یہ کہ آسٹرولوجی یعنی علم نجوم کسی مذہب یا عقیدے کا نام نہیں۔ اس کا کسی ماورائی یا خفیہ علم سے کوئی تعلق نہیں اورنا ہی یہ کوئی تعویز، طلسم، نقش یا جادوٹونا ہے اور نا ہی یہ علم الاعداد کا حصہ ہے۔ بدقسمتی سے پاکستان میں اس علم سے متعلق بہت کم آگہی پائی جاتی ہے۔

جیوتش میں زائچہ شناسی کا ہنر بہت سے عوامل پرمنحصر ہے۔ ان عوامل میں زائچے کے گھروں کے مالکان خاص اہمیت رکھتے ہیں۔ ہر زائچہ بارہ گھروں پر مشتمل ہوتاہے۔ گھر میں موجود برج کا حاکم سیارہ “گھر کا مالک “کہلاتا ہے۔ گھر کے مالک کو ہندی میں بھاؤسوامی اوربھاؤپتی جبکہ سنسکرت میں بھاویش کہا جاتاہے۔اردو اور فارسی کتب میں گھر کےمالک کو صاحبِ خانہ اور حاکم ِ خانہ سے معنون کیا گیا ہے۔ہندوستانی نجومیوں کےمطابق کسی بھی تنجیمی حکم کا کا انحصار تین باتوں پر ہے: “گھر”،”گھر کاما لک “اور”کارک “۔ ان تینوں عناصرمیں گھر کےمالک کو اختصاص حاصل ہے۔
