    Astrology And Assisted Methods Of Conception

    <a href=Dr. E. S. Neelakantan TODAY, ASTROLOGY IS looked upon as a science capable of delivering us solutions to many of the present day problems. One of the common problems we come across in the world today is infertility. Due to advances in science and technology it has now become possible for childless couples to have children through techniques such as In-vitro Fertilisation (IVF). The first human birth resulting from IVF was on 3rd February 1984. Prior to this, infertile couples had only one path to parenthood, namely adoption. This technique of IVF initially brought it with it various legal and ethical issues but gradually over the last two and half decades, it has gained widespread acceptance. Although menopause puts a natural barrier to further conception, IVF has allowed women, a fresh lease of life to court pregnancy in their post-menopause life. It is significant to note that the uterus of a female is capable of supporting pregnancy, even after menopause. Ethical Issues Some of the ethical issues which arose after the introduction of IVF techniques were: 1. Conception is a matter involving only the husband and wife. These new techniques introduced technology as well as third parties into the picture, 2. Women could not conceive after menopause. But the possibility exists with this technique. 3. Barrenness is attributable to the will of God. Artificial methods could defeat God’s will. 4. Marital act is the source of pregnancy but in this method fertilization takes place outside the human womb and therefore immoral. Astrological Basis of Conception If the lord of 5th, sign dispositor of 5th lord, navamsa lord of 5th or the karaka planet Jupiter is strong, birth of issues is certain. Birth of issues is ruled out only if all the above mentioned factors fail. It is also said that a strong 5th lord can successfully ward off the ill-effects of vamsa vicheda yoga.

    technique of IVF initially brought it with it various legal and ethical issues but gradually over the last two

    and half decades,

    it

    has

    gained

    widespread

    acceptance.

    Although menopause puts a natural barrier to further conception, IVF has allowed women, a fresh lease of

    life to court pregnancy in their post-menopause life. It is significant to note that the uterus of a female is

    capable

    of

    supporting

    pregnancy,

    even

    after

    menopause.

    Ethical

    Issues

    Some of the ethical issues which arose after the introduction of IVF techniques were:

    • 1. Conception is a matter involving only the husband and wife. These new techniques introduced technology as well as third parties into the picture,

    • 2. Women could not conceive after menopause. But the possibility exists with this technique.

    • 3. Barrenness is attributable to the will of God. Artificial methods could defeat God’s will.

    • 4. Marital act is the source of pregnancy but in this method fertilization takes place outside the human womb and therefore immoral.

    Astrological

    Basis

    of

    Conception

    If the lord of 5th, sign dispositor of 5th lord, navamsa lord of 5th or the karaka planet Jupiter is strong, birth

    of issues is certain. Birth of issues is ruled out only if all the above mentioned factors fail. It is also said that

    a

    strong

    5th

    lord

    can

    successfully

    ward

    off

    the

    ill-effects

    of

    vamsa

    vicheda

    yoga.

    A client wished to know whether the time would be ripe for adoption since he had no issues. On going through the birth chart, I noticed that not only the 5th house was strong in both the charts (of the husband and the wife) but also the running period was conducive for conception. Instead of giving them assurance

    that they will have a child soon, I told him that they should not adopt a child for the next couple of years.

    Within

    a

    year

    they

    were

    blessed

    with

    a

    child.

    Another way of determining whether conception could take place is by casting a chart at the time of the raised. A prasna chart has to be given the same treatment as a natal chart. As a rule only one query should

    be answered using a prasna chart. The Ashtakavaraga chart too can throw enough light on issues related to conception.

    Assisted modes can be adopted if

    • 1. The 5th house comes under benefic influences and the 5th lord is strong,

    • 2. The lagna and 5th lords are related to each other,

    • 3. Jupiter is well placed,

    • 4. Sufficient number of bindus are there in the 5th house in Ashtakavarga chart,

    • 5. Dasas and bhuktis conducive to conception are in progress.

    If yoga for childbirth exists but hindrances or obstacles are foreseen then it is a clear indication that “Purushakara” (human effort) rather than “Daiva” (destiny) can give the gift of a child to the native. In such cases assisted reproductive techniques may be suggested.

    Astrology is not a science of fatalism. For instance “Muhurtha” as a science, makes Man on a par with God, because whatever can happen due to time of birth (which solely rests on God’s will) can be made to happen by choosing an auspicious Muhurtha. But the silent catch in this theory is that even an auspicious Muhurtha gets fixed and acted upon only under a higher energy. As is rightly said, not even a blade of grass moves in this world unless ordained by that higher power.

    If the whole process of IVF is started under an auspicious Muhurtha, it can only give beneficial results. This is one of the major areas where people who are involved in this technology, need to focus upon. A prasna chart can determine chances of pregnancy. If the “chance” could be expressed as a percentage, then those whose chances are below 50%, may be dissuaded from resorting to such expensive and time consuming measures.

    The birth charts of the couple may be assessed to find out whether prospects for children exists. If yes, then these methods could be suggested. If not, they may be advised not to brood over this but focus on other good areas in their life and derive satisfaction out of that.

    “Assisted Technology” in producing children is one area where Astrology could prove to be a boon. Even in an advanced and well developed country like Canada, the average pregnancy rate reported in IVF may be just about 35%. Now the question is, which 35% is likely to succeed? Astrology as a science can help identify the unsuccessful 65% and assist them in employing their time, money and energy for better use.

    MARRIAGE - AN ASTROLOGICAL STUDY

    MARRIAGE is an institution with varied association. In Hinduism and in the Catholic religion at least, marriage is taken to be an indissoluble and sacred institution. To these faiths, marriages are literally made in heaven. In some countries marriage is a contract and it is therefore capable of being dissolved. Even where the law of divorce is found on the statute book, some countries like the United Kingdom do not allow a divorce as far as the royal family is concerned. When we turn to astrology, we only know that marriages are largely governed by planetary dispositions. We do not think that astrology would sanction divorce or oppose it, since astrology is neither a legislature nor a judge. Astrology only enables us to make a marriage happy or otherwise.

    Since the zodiac begins with Aries (Mesha). the natural seventh is Libra (Tula). The main indicators of marriage are Libra and its lord, as far as men are concerned. The seventh from Libra being Aries, the chief indicators of marriage for a woman are Aries and Mars. In a woman's chart, the Moon too must be taken into consideration since the menstrual period is regulated by Moon and Mars; and in a man's nativity Sun too must be examined carefully.

    In a man's chart, we have to consider Libra and the 7th from the ascendant, Sun and Venus; and in a woman's we must note Aries and the seventh from the ascendant, Moon and Mars. The eighth houses from these govern the sex life; and therefore Scorpio for the men and Taurus for women have to be added to the list. Then the extra marital life is determined by the twelfth house from the ascendant; and in a man's chart, Pisces too need scrutiny while in a woman's Virgo too deserves a study. This might terrify one since all the houses and planets appear to get into the picture. But what is needed is to findout the strongest among the ascendant, Sun and Venus in a man's chart, and among the ascendant Moon and Mars in a woman's. The major scrutiny should be from this point only. The others are needed as corroborating or strengthening aids only.

    An afflliction to a planet or house arises from a conjunction with or an aspect by a planet who is a malefic by nature or by ownership or by both. If a conjunction with or an aspect by a benefic also operates, then we get mixed character of the house or planet.

    A strong, well-placed and unafflicted Venus gives a harmonious and balanced marital life of man. A similar Mars governs the balanced sex life of a woman. These are the two basic planets. Venus is to be examined with the Sun, and Mars with the

    Moon. The position of Venus in a male chart is to be compared with that of Mars in the wife's chart; and a similar comparison between the Sun in the Husband's chart and the Moon in the wife's is necessary. Whether they aspect one another, they are in square or trine to one another, or they are inimical to one another must be carefully noted. The next step is to see whether the Navamsa chart of the wife agrees with the Rasi chart of the husband, and whether the Rasi chart of the wife agrees with the Navamsa chart of the husband. These preliminary observations will be taken up for a scrutiny and a later stage. Now we have to consider the possible effects resulting from certain positions of the planets. In the following , he means and includes she also.

    The Sun in the seventh indicates a successful marriage; and in the eighth a successful interest in the affairs where the strongest feelings are involved and in matters of sex. The moon in the seventh makes one change his attitude frequently towards those intimately related to him; and he hopes the marriage partner to be motherly. The eighth house position stimulates these interests. Mercury in the seventh can either advance or related reciprocity of feelings and emotions; and in the eighth he affects the emotions roused by others. Venus in the seventh is a very good indication of happy marriage and of the ability to live with others in peace and happiness. If this Venus is afflicted, there may be disappointment in this direction. In the eighth Venus secures a balanced sex life if it is not afflicted. Mars in the seventh makes one forceful in intimate relationships. If afflicted, it might bring about irritation and quarrels. In the eighth it makes sex life very important for the native. The seventh house Jupiter is very good for marriage life. In the eight it brings prosperity through marriage. Saturn in the seventh brings about frustration and disappointment in marriage, if it is afflicted. In the eighth, it makes one serious in matters concerning sex.

    Of the various signs involved in a consideration of the problem of marriage, there are a few sensitive degrees which may be noted. All these refer to the Nirayana of Sidereal Zodiac only.

    Aries : 1°, The sexual need is an inescapable necessity. It might be almost fatal. 2°, one is fierce, restless and selfish, whimsical , and tyrannical, without any sign of

    chivalry.

    4°, one is sensuous and generous. 6°, one may be ruined by the

    partner. 9°, it is likely that one may have untimely love. 11°, It makes one lack

    the ability to live in harmony with the person he or she loves.

    13°,

    one is

    passionate to access or is completely detached and isolated. 14°, it speaks of deep-rooted lust. 17°, it refers to many a love affair and an artless and coarse behavior. 19°, it suggests an ideal partner. 22°, one is indifferent to love. 23°, marriage can be lucky. 26°, one has a very good feminine nature. Gentle and sweet, she will be least self-assertive.

    Taurus : 3°, one loves peace and spreads around himself comfort and harmony. 6°, the woman would order her husband and bully him. There may be bigotry and

    vulgarity. 8°, one gives himself or herself up wholly to friendship and this might lead to strife in family and unhappy married life. This is likely to ruin one's self

    respect. 10°, it gives rise to chaos and disorder in the household. 11° ,14°, It

    offers a happy marriage. 15°, one is fond of family and home, and yet faces domestic strife. 18°, one is fond of his family, but is really despotic and unscrupulous. 25°, there is a likelihood of being divided from the partner.

    29°, it

    indicates happy marriage and perfect sociability. 30°, it is likely that estrangement from the partner and children follows.

    Libra : 3°, it gives a generous heart. 8°, one allows himself or herself to be ruled unconditionally by the person he or she loves. In some cases we may find lust and

    delinquency. 15°, his behavior is determined by his sexual urge. Intrigues and adventures dominate his love affairs and she will quarrel over very paltry things. Sometimes lust may make him a criminal. 18°, one is unable to live without love; and there is faithfulness along with jealousy. 19°, there is strong sex urge which may develop into lust. 22°, it offers neither joy nor pleasure in life. 24°, on his private life he is selfish and lustful, shameless and sensuous. 26°, there is an unbridled lustfulness, and he becomes a prey to wine, women and gambling. 29°, he is deeply attached to home.

    Scorpio : 10°, one is dominated by sex urge, love of family and home. 12°, it indicates loneliness, sorrow and widowhood. 14°, it offers a steady domestic happiness. 19°, one becomes a deeply attached lover lavishing his affections. Sometimes excess of lust may bring home to trouble.

    PLANETARY COMBINATIONS FOR ADMINISTRATIVE AND HIGH JUDICIAL OFFICERS

    Often there is a question as to how people having different horoscope enter the same profession. The simple answer to this could be that their horoscopes must bear some similar factors.

    To locate such factors, an investigation into the nativities of those coming under the same profession would be necessary on the following lines :

    • 1. The nature and related characteristics of a particular profession should first be

    ascertianed and analysed.

    • 2. Likewise, the indications of the Zodiacal houses should also be balanced in the

    features of the profession (e.g., 6th house in a horoscope is the house of

    government service as explained hereinafter.)

    Thus the planets and the Zodiacal houses, so established for a particular profession, would go to make the common or similar factors for each profession.

    An attempt is made here in respect of administrative officers in public administration. Public administration has been defined as the "Art and science of Management as applied to the affairs of the state" and also as "that part of science of asministration, which has to do with the goverment and thus, concern itself primarily, with the executive branch, where the work of the govermnment is done."

    The functions of the administrative officer (I.A.S.) are rather undefined and unlimited. However, in various capacities , they are of different natures. In one capacity, one of his important function is to tender advice to the political executives with his inherent talent, knowledge of technicalities of administration and his reservoir of information and thus, help in formulation of policies and enactment of laws. His task in this respect goes even further. In order to execute the laws and the public policy, he sets-up the work of programme-planning; and thus, arranges to maintain co-ordination.

    It will not be out of season to mention that instead of considering the planets in their individual capacity, an astrologer may normally, focus on looking for Raja Yogas. One, two or more such Yogas in the horoscope may lead one to mistake them as qualified for the I.A.S. job.

    The view is not dependable for the following reasons :

    • 1. Firstly, a Raja Yoga is different from Rajya Yoga, and the former is not be

    confused for the latter.

    The Raja Yoga in a horoscope indicates health, happiness and comforts and

    luxuries of life as per their constituents, and also certainly indicates political power but it would require a good deal of study and investigation before one could definitely in what manner a Raja Yoga is likely to manifest.

    • 3. The Raja Yoga in different horoscopes are generally, of different type and

    strength (vide horoscope under review for ready reference), except one or the other of them being common, but that too, not in all cases.

    • 4. The Raja Yogas are not always dependable, rather are ineffective, if the

    component planets suffer from any inability due to maleficence, and thus, are rendered powerless to give results of the Yoga.

    • 5. Moreover, it is also to be noted that the Raja Yogas, no doubt, have a generial

    impact on the horoscope, but they fructify mainly when the Dasa-Bhukti of the palnets forming the Yoga come to operate in the life-time of the individual concerned, which may not necessarily coincide with the time of entrance into the profession.

    • 6. Over and above all, it is also very pertinent to see whether there is any malefic

    or evil Yoga in the horoscope, in addition to the benefics ones, which if it exists, will mar the results of even the benefics Yogas, just as a drop of poison in a jar of milk spoils all the milk.

    As such the Raja Yogas do not, in themselves, justify the making of an administrative officer and cannot be accepted as common factors.

    We have to search for planetary influences, in the individual capacity of planets and the Zodiacal indications by assessment of :

    • 1. The status of the planets amongst themselves;

    • 2. Inherent features, nature, qualities and tendencies of planets;

    • 3. Residential strength of the planets in the relation and association with other

    planets;

    • 4. Functional value of the planets with reference to a particular Lagna; and

    • 5. The nature and tendencies of the Zodiacal signs or houses.

    Status of Planets

    According to Jataka Parijata (II - 2) ----

    2. The Raja Yoga in a horoscope indicates health, happiness and comforts and luxuries of life

    meaning, that the Sun and the Moon are sovereigns; Jupiter and Venus are counsellors; Mercury is the heir-apparent (young prince); Mars is the commander- in-chief; and Saturn is the servant. In saying that the Sun and the Moon are sovereigns, it must be understood that the Sun is the king, the Moon being the Queen. Similarly, Jupiter is the minister (External Affairs) and Venus is his wife (Minister for Internal Affairs or the matters inside the house).

    Further, the Sun rules the six signs from Leo taken in the negative side while the Moon is the lord of the other six signs, from Cancer counted in the opposite side. It is by these two luminaries that the supremacy over the other 10 signs has been given to Mars and the other planets. That is to say, the 2nd place from the Sun in Leo, his throne-seat, (negatively) has been alloted to Mercury, the heir-apparent. The 3rd place has been given to Venus who is the Minister of Internal Affairs. The 4th house has been given over to Mars who is the commander-in-chief. The 5th house is the house of knowledge and External Affairs, and has been alloted to Jupiter. To the servant Saturn, has been alloted the 6th house.

    A similar order would follow in the case of the Moon with reference to the signs under her sway counted from Cancer (her throne - seat).

    As explained above, the 6th place from the sovereign's throne, (the Sun in Leo) has been alloted to saturn. In other words, the 6th house is the house of government service and Saturn is the government servant.

    The 6th house becomes all the more significant as it stands identical with the 9th (Bhagyastana) from the 10th (Karmastana); and also the 10th (Karmastana) from the 9th (the Bhagyastana); again, it is the 5th from the 2nd house and the 2nd from the 5th house. Further, no less important is the position of the 11th house, the house of gains and income, as it stands 6th from the 6th house. Hence, in this context, the 11th house also plays an important role.

    Further in consideration of the status of the planets amongst themselves, Jupiter (minister for sovereign), Mars (commander-in-chief i.e., possessing executive powers) and Saturn (servant of the sovereign), represent fitness for the administrative job. Accordingly, for the purpose of investigation, we proceed ahead to evaluate these three planets with reference to their natural, residential, functional and other properties.

    Saturn

    Amongst other indications, Saturn signifies servile duty, whole sovereignty

    (Uttarakalamrita

    V -- 47-50); further, Saturn controls longevity, livehood, cause

    of death, prosperity and adversity. Besides, he represents general masses, public responsibilities, mass contact and political diplomacy.

    Ordinarily, as a general dictum of astrology, any planets in his own, exaltation,

    friendly house or Moolatrikona Rasi or Varga and Amsa, will promote the happiness of the person concerned. (Uttarakalamrita, IV -- 13). Besides, Saturn is predominant in his own Drekana, especially, when in Upachayas (3,6,10,11) and also in all the signs when retrograde (Jataka Parijata II -- 67). Again, in case Saturn acquires beneficience by temporal position, its aspects are productive of good.

    Saturn in the 1st house (Ascendant) identical with Libra, Sagittarius and Pisces signs, according to Garga is capable of conferring royalty (i.e., power, authority and prosperity) on the native.

    Saturn in the 1st is capable of conferring authority and power.

    friendly house or Moolatrikona Rasi or Varga and Amsa, will promote the happiness of the person

    It is apparently so because Saturn in the Ascendant aspects the 7th (house of diplomacy) and the 10th (the house of livelihood, respect and dignity). And, he also aspects the 8th, the house of vocation. He sends exceedingly powerful rays in his 3rd and 10th aspect , his quarter glance (J.P. II - 31). Again, in the case of Pisces Ascendant, he is the lord of the 11th (Capricorn), in which sign he indicates honours, authority, position and financial gains.

    An almost parallel view is also expressed in Jataka Parijata (VII - 57)

    friendly house or Moolatrikona Rasi or Varga and Amsa, will promote the happiness of the person

    It means that when Saturn is in the rising sign identical with Sagittarius, Pisces, Libra, Aries, Capricorn or Aquarius, the native will be lord of men, handsome and intelligent, and will lead a town or village.

    When in the 4th (Simhasana or house of authority), he aspects the 6th, the 10th and the Ascendant. One becomes a great diplomat or high-positioned government servant and wields immerse power and gets success in foreign countries.

    When in the 7th, where Saturn gets Digbala, he becomes very powerful and promises a prominent high position in public life. In the 10th, normally, he gives reversals in life and causes sudden downfall if afflicted; but when exalted and

    aspected by a benefic 10th lord, he extends splendour, honour, grandeur and reputation. He is the Karaka for the 6th house (J. P. II - 51).

    Assuming lordship of the 9th and the 10th from Lagna, in the case of Taurus Ascendant, he becomes highly auspicious. Saturn, when he bestows blessings, has no limits and can take one very high in all areas of life.

    aspected by a benefic 10th lord, he extends splendour, honour, grandeur and reputation. He is the

    meaning, that Saturn always gives all desirable things when in the 8th.

    Mars

    As regards Mars, he is called 'Vakra' (crooked) also, meaning diplomat. He also represents kingship, royal aspect, authority and power to punish, magistrate, criminal cases, energy, courage, tact, action, executive capacity, service under a king, commander, land, lord of men and mounting a vehicle. He also indicates treasure and litigation.

    What an administrative officer needs in the performance of his duties is, mainly the executive capacity, tact and diplomacy, timely and effective action and determination to assert authority , to take wrong-doers to task for maintenance of law and order and to secure the welfare of the people by exercising magisterial powers vested in him. These are the qualities of Mars. He is, thus, the strong indicator for executive service under the government. Like Saturn, the magnitude of his strength will have its say in raising the position of the native high.

    As regards the strength of Mars, he is also the Karaka for the 6th house, (the house of service under the government). He has abundant strength in his Drekanna, in the 12th, the 8th, the 11th, the 10th and the 1st signs, in retrogression, in his navamsa and gives prosperity when he is in the 10th from Lagna and also when he is in Cancer (J. P. II - 63). Besides, like others planets, he is strong in his exaltation, own house, in a friendly house and Moolatrikona Rasi and bestows immense benefits and makes one a leader. He is mighty strong in Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius when without the Sun. He gets strong even in his enemy's camp. (Uttarakalamrita V -

    15).

    He gets auspicious in the 8th in the matter of service,as in the case of Mr. Morarji Desai who started his career as an administrative officer with exalted Mars in his 8th. The 8th house is the house of vocation as well; and Mars is the Lord of 8th of the Zodiac (Kalapursha). Hence, Mars in the 8th as lord of the 8th is very significant

    in service matters; from the 8th, he aspects the 11th also.

    Mars enjoys Digbala in the 10th and gives prosperity. He gets exalted in the 10th sign of the Zodiac. Mars in the 10th makes one the beacon light of the family.

    in service matters; from the 8th, he aspects the 11th also. Mars enjoys Digbala in the

    Mars in the 10th house gives executive ability, capacity for leadership and prosperity. He becomes specially strong as lord of the 9th in the 10th and makes one a judge or magistrate.

    In association with Saturn, he gives brilliant results. According to Kalamrita (IV - 8),

    in service matters; from the 8th, he aspects the 11th also. Mars enjoys Digbala in the

    Meaning, if Mars and Saturn be strongly placed i.e., exalted, in own or friendly house with benefic aspect, and occupy the 2nd and the 10th houses from the Lagna, the native will be highly praised in public and will be a great personage.

    According to Jataka Parijata (VII - 9) :

    in service matters; from the 8th, he aspects the 11th also. Mars enjoys Digbala in the

    When full moon in the 9th occupies exaltation, own or friendly house; and Mars and

    Saturn occupy the 2nd and the 10th, a ruler of the earth is born. Jataka Parijata (VII - 44) says :

    Further,

    in service matters; from the 8th, he aspects the 11th also. Mars enjoys Digbala in the

    If Saturn and Mars be in the 10th, 5th or 1st house and full Moon be in a sign owned by Jupiter, the person born will be a king.

    Jupiter

    Jupiter holds supremacy over all other planets as the preceptor of the gods. He represents the throne, treasure, royal honour, intellect, brilliancy, moving in village, travelling in a vehicle bordered on four sides (Uttarakalamrita, V- 38-41); legal affairs, diplomacy, power of discussion, respect and reputation, guardianship, wisdom, minister also knowledge and dignity. Jupiter is the giver of health, wealth and progeny. His aspect and association are said to be extremely beneficial.

    All of these qualities of Jupiter have close identity with the status and duties of an administrative officer. He holds high supreme position in the government. He stands strong like other planets in his own, exaltation, friendly house and Moolatrikona Rasi.

    He assumes power in Pisces, Sagittarius, Cancer, Aquarius and also in his debilitation sign. He is auspicious in the rising sign, in the 4th as well as th 10th from Lagna and gives much wealth.

    If Saturn and Mars be in the 10th, 5th or 1st house and full Moon be

    He gets Digbala in Lagna; and thus gets strong, aspecting the 5th, 7th and the 9th with full aspect. He is auspicious in his oblique aspect (Jataka Parijata II - 31).

    Jupiter's aspect over any planet as a natural benefic is of weighty importance apart from the fact that he may be temporarily ill-placed. The opposition aspect with the Moon is extremely good.

    Jupiter in conjuction with Mars makes the native loving, revered, wealthy and acquainted with the science of computation (Jataka Parijata VIII - 4). If the combination happens to be in the 10th house, it makes one a judge or magistrate.

    In relationship with Saturn, both being philosophical planets, Jupiter tends to give

    philosophical views or an ability for impartial assessment of things. Thus, Jupiter in strength and especially, having to do anything with the 6th or the 11th, promises strong indications for an administrative job under the government.

    Conclusion

    Now, in order to find the common astrological factors, the status and duties etc., of the I.A.S. officers (first stage of the investigation) on one side area, in the first instance, to be balanced with the planetary influence and Zodiacal indications (the second stage) on the other. The close study of the details on both sides in the foregoing paragraphs, shows the two sides are found quite balancing. That is to say, that the duties of the I.A.S. officers are duly contained in and corresponding to the status, nature and the tendencies of the three planets, Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. It is further to be seen how far the influence of these planets is contained in their horoscopes. The details of analysis therefore are shown in Appendix A. These details go to show that these planets are duly

    placed in the horoscopes, in auspicious and benefic and strong positions and are also simultaneously associated with and related to the 6th or the 11th or both houses.

    Needless to say, the stronger and more beneficially the planets (Jupiter, Mars and Saturn) are placed in a horoscope, the higher would be the position of the native concerned, even going to the level of I.A.S. officers or equivalent, depending upon the degree of beneficence and strength of the planets.

    Tenure of Service

    As regards the second phase or the tenure of service, it is the stage when these officers work in different assignments. Here, the difference in the careers of the IAS officers begins when they are appointed as such and have come to the actual field of service. They are then alloted different assignments that carry work and amenities of different natures. Some of these carry facilities like conveyance, glamour of supreme authority and power with all paraphernalia and insignia of royalty; whereas in other cases, such as secretariat assignments or, the like, they carry compartively few amenities and little splendour.

    IPS Officers

    Now as regards the IPS officers, they are also likewise administrative officers in the public administration, governed by the same system of recruitment as IAS officers. They are similarly responsible for law and order and well being of the people in general. So naturally, the same planetary combination of Jupiter, Mars and Saturn associated or related with the 6th and/or the 11th house of the Zodiac, as in the case of IAS officers, would apply to them. The only distinguishing point between the two classes of officers is that Jupiter in the case of IPS officers will be a bit weaker compared to IAS officers.

    High Judicial Officers

    As regards judicials officers, they too are recruited to the job through competitive examinations like administrative officers. They are also officers under the government, with status and authority, and they are empowered to punish the evil-doers. By exercise of law in the public interest, by way of their jufgements (of law), they create a sense of law in the public to make then law-abiding and also on the other hand, providing a sense of security under law to the public in general.

    The distinguishing point in this case in that their place and system of work in the performance of their duties differ from those of the administrative officers. They have

    not to work practically in the field but they exercise law in their office or court rooms by pronouncing the judgement of law. In fact, they put the law of the country into action. It is very well said that law is a silent judge, whereas a judge is a speaking law.

    This specific aspect require further probe into the nature etc., of the planets to locate the particular planetary influence concurring with it.

    In this context, excluding Saturn, Mars and Jupiter, we should look at Venus out of the remaining four planets, namely, Venus, Mercury, the Sun and the Moon. Venus is the minister (counsellor for internal affairs i.e., matters inside house), rules the kingdom or government authority, literacy composition, government seal (Uttarakalamrita, IV - 42 1/2 - 45) and furnished rooms. On the other hand, the judicial officers administer justice having authority vested in them by the government, through judgement of law (i.e., legal literacy compositions) in their well furnished judgement halls. Thus, very obviously the distinguishing features of their working system and place fall in with the qualities and tendencies of Venus.

    Venus is auspicious in his exaltation sign, in his varga in the 3rd, the 4th, the 6th and the 12th houses from the Lagna, in conjuction with the Moon; in retrograde motion and when he is in advance of the Sun (Vide, Jataka Parijata II - 66). Venus in the 12th will prove auspicious except when he is in the Rasi or Navamsa owned by Saturn. Venus as well as Jupiter become fully favorable, when in the house of a benefic and in conjuction with the lord of the same.

    Venus will do good when in the 6th house (Uttara Kalamrita IV - 9) and does not lose strength even when eclipsed. He has Digbala in the 4th. When Venus in strong

    occupying the 11th or the 12th, a king's peer takes birth (J.P. VII - 10).

    When Venus occupies the Lagna in Aswini Nakshatra and is aspected by all other planets, the person will be senior in the family destined to destroy the whole host of enemies (J.P. VII - 6).

    In the Appendix A, B and C have been detailed the positions of the planets (Jupiter, Mars Saturn in case administrative officers, IAS and IPS and also Venus in the case of judicial officers) forming the common factors for a common career.

    Tapaswi Yoga

    How is Tapaswi Yoga formed?

    When Ketu, Venus and Saturn are in Trines to each other then it is called Tapasvi yoga.

    Sometimes, when two planets are together and third have a strong relation with them, say rashi drishti, then also tapaswi yoga can manifest.

    If Atmakaraka is involved in or with Tapaswi Yoga then Tapaswi yoga is much stronger as soul is involved in the yoga and hence the yoga is more fruitful.

    Why Tapaswi yoga work?

    Trines are Ruled by Lakshmi and Quadrants are ruled by Vishnu. Quadrants show efforts and trines show fruits. Planets in mutual trines are conducive to each other and help each other's significations prosper.

    Saturn is a planet of Hardwork and discipline. Saturn shows doing a thing again and again in routine without wanting for fruits. Saturn in this yoga gives discipline and ability to work hard.

    Ketu is a headless graha, it is above wants and selfishness. it denotes selflessness, evolution towards ananta and raise a person above the material world. It gives an urge to know the hidden truth. Ketu in this yoga gives a person selfless devotion towards an aim and a strong urge to find the truth.

    Venus gives passion, involvement and enjoyment. Venus make person enjoy the discipline, hardwork and selfless devotion given by Saturn and Ketu.

    Tapaswi yoga gives person a strong mind which can endure lot of sufferings.

    when does Tapaswi Yoga manifest?

    Tapasvi Yoga can be triggered in overlapping periods of favourable Nakshatra dashas and Rashi dashas. Although once triggered it's results can be lifelong even after that particular dasha ends.

    What are the effects of Tapaswi yoga?

    Tapaswi Yoga doesn't mean a Sanyasi or Sadhu always or a spiritual person. It means a dedicated and austere pursuer of something. Tapaswi means a person who does the 'tapa'. Tapa means pursuing an aim single mindedly (Sanskrit tapah, tapas- , heat, austerity) With hardwork, discipline and without any selfishness.

    As respected PVR Narasimha Rao says "Tapaswis usually dedicate themselves to research and uncover the secrets of the world. A Tapaswi can be into yoga, mantra, tantra, astrology or even physics or chemistry."

    A person having Tapaswi Yoga dedicates his life to a area. Does hardwork and achieve success in that are. The dedicaiton can be towards materialistic inclinations or spiritual inclinations or profession or religion or any other area of life. For example, an atheistic scientist who spends 16 hours a day in finding a cure for a disease can be a tapasvi. Albert Einstein had Tapaswi yoga in his chart.

    In which area or life and by which method will the person becomes a yogi will be determined by in which trikona (Dharam, Arth, Kama, moksha) and in which divisional chart does the yoga is taking place.

    What are the effects of tapasvi yoga in different divisional charts?

    Effects of Tapaswi yoga depends on in which divisional chart it is taking place

    In D24 (siddhamsha) Tapaswi Yoga give dedication towards learning In D10 (dashamsha) Tapaswi yoga gives dedication in Profession In D9 (navamsha) Tapaswi yoga means dedication in Dharma (Duties) In D20 (Vimshamsha) tapaswi Yoga means dedication in spirituality and religion

    Similarly Tapaswi yoga gives different results in differnt charts.

    Below is the Rashi chart of Albert Einstein which have Tapaswi Yoga. two planets are together in 9H and ketu is in lagna. He had Tapaswi yoga in D24 also.

    Namaste Richa, Honestly, I have received few requests from some members to write on the Balarishta

    Namaste Richa, Honestly, I have received few requests from some members to write on the

    Balarishta area so I thought of sharing my a little knowledge with you all taking an example too.

    • I have learned the following Balarishta assesment method and principles from

    Visti Ji's (teaching from 2004 West Coast confernce), and also my own study on this area. If I am making any wrong application of the principles, please take them as my shortcoming in my understanding rather than their teachings. Having said that, let us get started. First of all let us understand what is Balarishta. After taking the birth it is not uncommon that some newly arrived native's are met with terrible circumstances in the form of dangers, disease or even death. The possibility of premature death follows the native, until the 24th year has passed from the time of birth. The methods of ascertaining the longevity of the native are inapplicable to a person below this age. These 24 years are termed as: Balarishta from 0-12 years, and Yogarishta between 12-24 years. Sage Parasara later states that the Balarishta span is 8 years and Yogarishta is 12 years (9-20 years of age).

    Hence for a native of 8 years of age or younger the principles of Balarishta are fully applied, and the normal methods for calculating longevity such as Pindayu, etc, do not apply. Having understood what is Balarishta, now let us explore principles which causes the Balarishta and also those principles which cancles Balarishta.

    • I have considered the following birth details for this analysis, and I have

    attached the chart also for your convenience too:- Date: October 18, 2004Time: 2:57:00Time Zone: 5:30:00 (East of GMT)Place: 77 E 12' 00", 28 N 36' 00" New Delhi, India In this Chart, in Rasi, Leo Lagna is rising and its lord Sun is placed in 3rd house. Lagna is aspected by Rahu, Mer, Sun and ketu by Rasi Drishti. Rahu (7th lord) is also aspecting lagna by Graha Drishti. Ven the 3rd and 11th lord is placed in Lagna. First of all we have to see the Sun's placement in the child's chart to assess the vitality. Suns placement in the Dustna's (8th and 12th houses) the worst placements in any chart. 3rd and 6th houses are a bit OK. Here in this chart, the Sun is placed in the 3rd house is not too bad and also there is a parivartana between the Sun and Ven. So Sun is basically in the

    Lagna, so this indicates the native has a strong vitavitality towards diseases and should be fine. The next thing, we should see is the, the Lord of the weekday and this native was born on Sunday and Vaara Lord is Sun. You will notice that, this Sun is placed in the 3rd and Lagna ( after the Parivartana) house indicating that a strong vitality again. But Rahu is aspecting the Lagna and 3rd and 5th houses, hence some health problems are seen in this native's chart. Janma Nakshatra is Hasta and I am not going into the various Gandhanta's as that would be a separate reading itself and I am focusing on balaraishta's and let me continue from that point of view. Among the most important factors in judging balaraishta, the Moon is the key point of focus. So, next we have to see the sustenance of the native from Moon's placement.Here the Moon is 12th lord and placed in 4th house, so that is a good placement. But Rahu and Sat are aspecting Moon by Rasi Drishti. This Rahu is in Marana Karaka Sthana, so the overal this indicates some minor issues with the health of the native but not threat to te life at all. Jupiter is also known as Jeeva, which means life force. The weakness of Jupiter in the chart can prove detrimental towards the life force of the native, if neither the Sun nor the Moon is strong in the chart. But here Sun is strong and Jup is placed in 2nd house and aspecting the own singns too. So Jup is considerably stong,hence confirming the jeeva is strong. Having seen the Sun, Moon, Jup and Lagna lord are promising a good health, now let us see the 8th and 10th houses to see the balarishta too. 8th lord is Jup is placed in 2nd house. 10th lord is Ven who is placed in lagna. So these are showing no problems to threat to the native's life. On the top of the above good indications, the placement of Venus in the Lagna will eliminate any or all evils will be destroyed just as the Sun eliminates darkness.” Here Parasara is clearly stating that the Kendra’s to the lagna if occupied by benefics Venus (Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra) will protect the native. So in this Chart, Ven is placed in Lagna which will protect the native and nothing to worry at all. Having said that, may I request Gurus and learned members to correct me if I am wrong in applying the principles.
