Chakshushi Mantra and health of your Eyes

Our ancient Rishi-s had gone into such inner depths that they have given us mantras for everything. (I remember reading a certain tantra book, was surprised to find a cure for hair loss and also the process of calling the Ati-Ugra very terrible Smashan-Kali in the same book!) Mantra is energy-medicine which goes into your deepest energy body and rebalance things from there. Mantra are only in Sanskrit/ Devbhasha Samskrutam, no other language. And mantras from the Ved which were seen by Seers/ Rishi-s are effective.

There are 3 lines of checking if something is correct or wrong.

  • The Ved should say it is correct.
  • A seer-Rishi or a Guru must say that is correct.
  • And finally the over-riding, your own conscience should say that it is correct. Never do anything that is against your conscience, it creates the worst karma!

Chakshushi Mantra and health of your Eyes

In our modern world, most of us have some problems with the eye-sight. From the everyday eye-strain to the more serious ailments. Spectacles are very common right from childhood and after the 40’s most people get spectacles compulsorily. (An exception was my Mom, she didn’t need specs ever till she died in her 70’s.) 

A quick run-down on the astrological combinations for eye-sight problems,

  • The Sun or Moon afflicted
  • The 12th house or the 2nd house or their planetary lords afflicted
  • Signs of Cancer or Leo afflicted
  • The Sun combusting more than 1 planet in the chart.
  • In very brief, Sun is the right eye and the power of sight. Moon is the left eye and the power of sight. Mercury is the nerves and the sense of sight. Venus is the clarity and brightness of vision. Mars is vitality and energy of the eyes. Jupiter is overall health and especially the fatty nutrition. Saturn is darkness, pain and prolonged disease. Rahu is smoky and lack of nutrition or over-growth. Ketu is smoky and dryness. Depending on which planet gets involved you can draw a conclusion about the eye problem.

Now by ‘afflicted’ I mean, 

  • Debilitated, retrograde, combust or eclipsed.
  • Influenced by malefics, either conjunct or aspected by them
  • Placed in the 6th, 8th or 12th houses. 6th house is the chronic diseases, 8th is the acute diseases and 12th is loss of vitality or can indicate hospitals.
  • Influenced by the lords of the signs of the 6th, 8th or 12th houses
  • Placed in the navamsha of the signs located in the 6th, 8th or 12th houses of the D1 (for the advanced student).
  • The Ashtakvarga shows very low scores. The total of the signs of the 2nd and 12th houses low. The score of the identified planets from your above analysis in the sign they are placed in is low. (Do read the two posts on the Ashtakvarga, and for the advanced student)

Now these will be so very many many combinations. All of us will have at least one of them! But for the actual problem to manifest, there should be at least 3-4 combinations from the above list capable of giving the inauspicious result. Then, remember the inauspicious effects will be reduced if,

  • the ascendant sign, ascendant lord, Moon, Sun are placed well and capable of giving good results 
  • And the other planets/ signs/ houses under consideration are aspected by benefic planets. Also check the chart-specific benefics and yogkaraks influence.

Do not underestimate these two positive factors. So before scaring yourself with possible eye related medical issues, analyse your chart in detail. (For the advanced student, do start referring to the Navamsha and Ashtakvarga for more pointers)

I know a chart. Saturn in 12th house. Mercury combust. Venus+Ketu. Rahu+Mars+Jupiter in Leo. Moon aspected by Saturn. He had myopia as a child. In his Venus-Venus antardasha period his suffering started. There was no clear precipitating factor (Ketu), he started getting spots (Ketu!) in his vision. These patches increased (Rahu) throughout his Venus mahadasha. There was no physical abnormality in the eyes so the doctors thought he was going nuts, undiagnosable diseases are Rahu-Ketu. Then as his Venus-Jupiter sub-period started, he met a really good shaman/ tantrik who told him the problem was due to an ill-wishing, a black-magic done on him (typical Rahu-Ketu item), and the nadi-pran (Mars) of the eyes was twisted. The eyes were not getting enough nutrition (Jupiter), ‘drying up’ (Ketu). Left eye (Saturn) was more damaged than the right. This shaman did something in his way to help his eyes. There was a slow improvement in the vision. Then he did more personal targeted mantra/ pujas. Now he has reached his Venus-Mercury sub-period and the spots etc have gone away and his vision is clear.

Chakshushi Mantra and health of your Eyes

Now for ensuring your vision remains good, connecting with the Sun and the Moon always works. Sun related stuff read in this post. And the best way for taking in the Moon’s energies is this, in silver cup, take milk (from Desi Indian Humped-cow), keep it in the light of the full-moon/Pournima at night, recite any Moon stotra or mantra or beej mantra or just ‘Om Chandraya namah’ over it and drink it.

Now the Chakshush-mati vidya. This is for keeping your eyes and vision healthy

This mantra is also called the Chakshushi Upanishad. This mantra is in Sanskrit, which cannot be translated, but here is the generic meaning for basic understanding.

Om, the Ultimate reality, your and my real name. Every mantra starts and ends with Om. ‘Chakshu’ is the physical eyes, the third eye, the act of ‘seeing’ and everything connected to ‘seeing’ and ‘sight’. In this mantra you are using the power of the Sun and unlimited power the internal Sun both. ‘Rog’ is disease, infirmity, imbalance and inability. The intention is to remove all the Rog that have got associated with your 3 eyes. You intend that your power of ‘seeing’ becomes more stable, firm, more brilliant and radiant. Your three eyes become capable of seeing what they are supposed to see. You intend protection for your eye-sight. You desire that all possible inabilities of your eyes and vision end immediately. The eyes become perfectly able. You want to see the pure conscious brilliance of the Internal Sun. ‘Andha’ is another Sanskrit word here, it means physical blindness, spiritual darkness, ignorance, un-coordinated movement of energy etc. You intend that you should never be an ‘andha’. Your perfect spiritual self should be visible to you. On the physical planes too, you should have perfect sight. You intend beauty, excellence, luck, happiness, perfect working, illumination, welfare, auspicious fortune, etc for yourself.

If there are any heavy-duty karmic acts from your past lives which are affecting the power of your Eyes now, you intend that these all are removed from their very roots. Empathetically, all of them, removed from their very foundations from you.

You acknowledge the glittering light of the internal and also the external Sun. He gives your Eyes the power of fire, brilliance and the ability to See. This infinite, beloved, Source of everything, gives his blessings out of kindness and compassion. The Sun in all his power, grants you the vitality/ fire in your physical body. You also acknowledge the internal Sun as he grants the divine connection to your individual soul. The Consciousness who resides unsupported in the skies and also in you. The great primordial Intellect, the source of all movement, the most highly desired, the highest superlative, the cause of all illusion and also illumination. You address this energy with its real name Om, which is also your name. You bring in all these qualities within yourself.

You want to move from the non-real to the real. From the state of immobility caused by ignorance to the movement caused by illumination. You intend to move from the cycle of birth-death-rebirth to the Ultimate Enlightenment. Brilliance or warmth or movement is the quality of pure Reality manifested in this creation. ‘Hamsa’ is the quality of the pure Reality which brings you back to the Reality (Read my post on Soham and Hamsa).

If this ‘Chakshush-mati vidya’, ie the pure science of Sight, is regularly recited by the one who knows its real meaning, he will never have any Rog/inability to his 3 Eyes. His ‘Kula’ will never suffer from being ‘Andha’. ‘Kula’ is translated as family or lineage, but the spiritual meaning is the Chakras of your body. These lower Chakras are called the ‘Kula’, while the top-most perfection of the Bindu is called the ‘A-kula’.

This mantra rebalances a lot on the inner levels.

Chakshushi Mantra and health of your Eyes

Now the practical part, there are several ways to use this Chakshushi mantra. And everyone can benefit from it.

  • Recite it 1 to 12 times a day, or once a week on Sundays or when you have time, as per your convenience.
  • Recite it in front of the rising Sun or in front of your household deities/altar. 
  • While reciting the mantra, keep some water in a silver bowl or in a glass bowl and put a silver or gold coin in it. After you finish, some of this energised water is applied to the eyes and the forehead. The remaining water is drunk. 
  • You can do a Homa with it. One drop of ghee is to be put in the fire/Agni with the last ‘Swaha’. (Read the basic homa post is here.) The vibhuti/ energised ash, from the Homa is applied to the forehead and a bit of it is eaten. This vibhuti will remain energised for about 15 days, store it in a glass bowl. If you can do a 108 repeat of the Mantra with 108 Swaha offerings to the fire, it will take about 1 hour. This highly potent Vibhuti can be put into a talisman/ amulet and worn on the body. This in case of severe problems with the eyes.

Now this is not a replacement for proper professional medical advice. But if you are taking some treatment for your eyes, you can do this energy rebalancing while you take your medicines, it will help. Also if you energise the water using this Chakshushi mantra, you and your family can apply this to the eyes before going to bed. It works.


Remedies for combust planets

Combust planets have their energy directed inwards. This combust planet will give more results on the internal spiritual levels rather the outer material levels. This is not a punishment, nor a thing to be afraid of. It simply is. This combust planet indicates a lesson in life which is to be learnt intensely. Maybe we didn’t appreciate this planet’s gifts in our past lives, so in this life our divine connection is intimately intertwined with this planet. This planet can give very good results if used consciously. If you remain unaware of its potential and not use it actively, it will manifest as imbalances of the physical life and as medical conditions. Often ‘over-heating’, ‘over-activation’ type of medical problems or surgeries are possible. Issues with the eye-sight are also frequently seen here. Depending on which planet is combust there can be other symptoms too. I have written about these topics in several past posts.

Eg Mercury combust is very common. But people with this combination also make for excellent writers, public speakers. (eg current Indian PM Narendra Modi. His birthdate is 17th Sept 1950, time unknown. But the Sun and Mercury are on the same degree, Caizmi Mercury.) So those, about 25%, of us with Mercury combust should write, learn skills, paint, knit, do something with those hands! Then depending on the position, placement and power of Sun+Mercury combo, you will be given more skills of other types too, including doing ‘magic’ or tantra if your horoscope permits. The dreams states and other sub-conscious states will give valuable cues which you will then use in your physical life. Mercury is about thought, action and use. And he has merged with the Sun. So you will use your creativity in every possible way!

The Sun now is not just ‘Sun’, he is the ‘Sun+the combust planet’ combination energy. In your chart, this combo now rules all their combined houses/signs. ie Leo and the signs of the combust planet. Eg if Gemini ascendant, Mercury combust, the ‘Sun+Mercury’ combination will together control the ascendant sign, is together the ascendant lord, the combined ruler of the 4th house-sign Virgo and 11th house-sign Leo. They together will subtly influence the 3rd house-natural sign Gemini, 5th house-natural sign Leo and 6th house-natural sign Virgo. So this combo becomes very important in this horoscope.

Remedies for combust planets

Now how to balance these combination energies? First of all focus on your Sun.

A good option is to do the Surya-namaskar. It improves physical fitness, mental strength as well as spiritual strength. If you are not physically fit, do it as you can, imperfectly, slowly. Start with one repeat per day and gradually increase as per your fitness levels. Do not strain yourself. Sit in the early morning/late evening sunlight, when the sun is yellow-orange and try to expose your skin to this sunlight. Never sit in the white bright Sun, it is very harsh.

Next option is to give Surya Arghya. This is how everyone is supposed to start the day, but now most of us have forgotten. In one small copper pot, take water. Add one pinch kumkum/ vermillion or a strand of saffron if you can afford, one red/orange/yellow flower, some grains of raw rice. Even one of these things is good enough if you cannot find them all. Stand in your balcony, barefoot, look at the rising sun, hold the pot in your hands, rise your hands and pour the water out in a thin stream. The stream will be at your eye level, between you and the Sun. See the light of the Sun reflected in the water stream. After you pour out the water, touch the water fallen on the ground with your right hand fingers and touch them to your eyes.

A mantra for the Sun is recited as you pour out the water. Options are

  • Surya arghya mantra – But might be too long for beginners (youtube from 0.25 secs to 2:12 seconds)
  • Mahamrutyunjai mantra ‘ Om tryambakam yajamahe sugandhiṃ pushti-vardhanam urvarukamiva bandhanat mrutyor mukshiya ma amrutat Om’
  • Gayatri mantra ‘Om Bhuh Bhuvah Svah, Om Tat Savitur Varenyam, Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi, Dhiyo Yo nah Prachodayat Om’
  • Surya beej mantra ‘Om Hraang hreeng hrowng sah Suryaya namah’ Om
  • Or simply ‘Om Suryaya namah’ Om three times
  • Or at least, when you see him in the morning, do a simple Namaskar. Fold your hands in gratitude to the early morning Sun.

Then a fun option is adding Sun’s energy in the form of the food which links to him. The fragrances and spices with his energy. Or wear the colors which are linked to him.

If you are a Hindu, you can do a Satya-narayan puja or a Rudra-abhishek or a Nava-graha Shanti puja once a year on any auspicious day or your birthday etc. But do this only if you can afford to. This would be an extra thing but it is good as the entire family can participate and benefit from its energy.

But the best remedy is giving yourself at least 15mins everyday. You have to do personal mediation ie Dhyan. Look into your third eye and simply breath in and out slowly. The Ajapa mantra of Soham/ Hamsa will automatically take over and you will be more in connect with your internal sub-conscious self. The energy gets a safe channel to express itself. You should not be scared of the Sun or the combust planet. From my personal experience, unless you give your Sun+planet combo this inner level opening, you will face physical problems. Accept what is being offered to you by them, don’t worry. Once you start your Dhyan, the physical problems will lessen and your inner benefits will start becoming tangible. (My own horoscope’s most important benefic is exactly on the Sun. I give him a channel for expression so that I benefit on the inner levels. There were some unpleasant medical issues on the physical levels, but they got resolved as I allowed him an outlet. And in any case, what I gain from this Sun+planet combo is immense).

Remedies for combust planets

Now a quick look on the 5 Tara-graha, planets which can get combust. You have to do something about them too. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. These are some thought processes for you to think about and if necessary change within yourself.

Mercury – The mind and the mental-processes are stuck. So exercise your mind, solve puzzles, write, read something new every day. Meet with your same-age people, eg join a creative arts club. Give your mental processes enough rest, sleep is important. Avoid over-stimulating your mind, avoid drugs etc. Do not argue or speak bad words unnecessarily. Healing of the Vishuddhi chakra helps.

Venus – Be fair in love, give and receive from your loved ones. Appreciate what you have. Avoid criticising. Do not be caught up in external beauty of cosmetics and expensive clothes. Venus is actually the Teacher of self-love. So meditation is important. Spend some time with yourself to know the inner you. If you know yourself, you will also love yourself. Secure in your self-love, you will radiate positivity, good vibes and everyone will reflect this. Healing the Anahata chakra is a good option.

Mars – Form your opinions, avoid being influenced by others. Do not get involved in unnecessary emotional drama or arguments. Try to develop patience, do not react unnecessarily or over-react. Develop courage, do not be afraid of life and its events. Your vital energy is stuck somewhere inside, let it out. Do healing on your Manipur chakra.

Jupiter – Read about religious or philosophical subjects. There are several ways to approach the inner divinity. Think or write about your personal philosophy. Find a source of faith which appeals to you. Personal meditation is very important to know your innermost thoughts, so start a regular spiritual practice. Healing the Swadhishthan chakra helps.

Saturn – Avoid being selfish, individualistic behaviour cannot sustain. Always follow your conscience. Try to help others, there is always someone who needs help. Be kind. Affirm that you are secure, do not fear or grieve. Open yourself to new things are coming in. Take a calculated risk sometime. Do smile, take a break from being so serious. Do healing on the Muladhar Chakra.

Healing the chakras linked to the planets always helps. I have written about doing chakra healing in this post. It takes about 10-15 mins for your entire chakra system, and it works beautifully. You can do it once a week if you have time. Or do it quickly a minute per chakra before you go to bed. Or you can do it as your daily ‘spiritual practice’. But do it. ‘Energy goes where attention goes’, is very true. When you consciously ‘look’ at every chakra for 1-2 mins, you are channelising tremendous energy inwards specifically for each one of them. It makes a very big difference. If you are doing this daily, try it for 21 days before you analyse its effects.

There are simple activities which you can do (post here) to balance the planetary energies. These are one-time remedies but if the adverse effect was intense you can repeat them 1-2 times a year. Or do their Homa (post here), this is also a one-time remedy, but you can do the Homa whenever you feel like it, it is quite an enjoyable experience in itself. Or just recite their mantra on their corresponding week-days, this would be a weekly thing then. Do what you feel like, all methods are equally effective. When you do these remedies, visualise blessings ie golden-silvery-shimmery light around you. Whatever you do, keep your intentions strong and focused. Also be grateful to these conscious energies represented by the planet. Use your will, the planets are but a reflection of your own self, they are not something separate from you. When you heal them you are actually healing yourself.

Rahu and Ketu in the 6th 12th house axis

Both Rahu and Ketu represent extremes of material prosperity/adversity and the corresponding extremes of spiritually nil/evolved persons. Both are capable of giving spiritual and material results. The 12th house is the house of mysteries and losses and its mirror is the 6th house of imbalance. Both are dusham-sthan, houses of turmoil. But the 6th is also a upchaya house, meaning that it’s results improve with age.

Rahu in the 12th house and Ketu in the 6th house

Rahu here desires to experience the strangeness of the 12th to the maximum. This Rahu in the 12th teeters on the edge. He is on the bridge of the conscious and the sub-conscious, the astral and the physical, the spiritual and the material. This can get quite strange and quite fast. Rahu here will want to experience foreign, strange, new, past lives, other dimensions, isolation in different ways, fantasy, sorrows, luxury, deprivations, dreams, visions, imprisonment and also liberation. Information from visions and past lives might be available. He wants to experience both sides of the coin and also the edge between. He wants to experience the privilege of privacy.

The house occupied by Rahu becomes the focus house. The personality desires its experiences, this house becomes the engine which pulls your entire chart behind it. Rahu in the 12th house is a placement difficult to judge. If he is aspected by even more malefics it can indicate imprisonment, confinement, addictions, drugs, to create fantasies and the desire to get lost in them. There can be a strangely fatalist mind-set, morbid even. There might be some irregularity in the marriage. The 18yrs of Rahu mahadasha can give extreme results of the 12th house keywords. During this period the Rahu-things become irresistible and fascinating. If you have a strong 5th house too, use your energy sensibly.

But if he is directed properly, he can generate interest in meditation and spiritual growth. A 12th house Rahu is subtly influenced by Pisces sign and Jupiter in your chart. Guru-s and spiritual teachers often show this placement. The desire then turns to coming out of this Maya enveloping the Inner Reality. So if you have this placement, keep away from drugs, alcohol etc. Avoid following an established religion without thinking about it. Such people can become fanatics! Personal prayer is always a better option. If you can discipline your mind in this aspect, 75% of your problems will be done with.

The positive aspects of this placement are relocation to a foreign land, or earnings from foreign lands. The profession might be away from the public eye, researchers, scientists are very much possible as Rahu here gives a piercing intuitive intelligence. New discoveries or more effective ways of doing work, automation etc. Healers, doctors, nurses, tantriks and occultists can also be successful with this Rahu. There is at least one dramatic rise in life. You might get opportunities for behind the scene deals and secret gains, use them only if your conscience approves.

A Rahu in the 12th house is complemented by Ketu in the 6th house. This Ketu if aspected by benefics can give very good results. However he finds it difficult to take orders from his seniors and cannot give orders to his juniors. Can work better in a self-employed or an independent business environment. However beware about over-extending yourself. Think logically about how much you can do often alone. You might find your workers quitting, so try to automate your business. You have very clear ideas on how you want to work and will not deviate from your personal work ethic. You have a very strict sense of moral behaviour and expect everyone around you to follow the same. Even if there are conflicts with your co-workers and boss you will stick to what you think is right. You are not diplomatic in the least and have quite a temper if roused. Enemies will be around you, ghosts and astral problems often exist. Ketu will grants unawareness and a strange immunity to these issues. But being too unaware can result in them exploding in typical dasha periods or transits.

However if this Ketu is incapable of auspicious results then this will result in irregular jobs, diseases of unknown nature, afflictions from ghosts, past life karmas will make their presence felt, there will be opposition in the lifepath, enemies and debts can overpower the personality. Overwork can lead to health issues. Medical help may not be available, or diagnosis may not be correct. One cannot mentally reconcile to failures in this Ketu position, hence depression type of issues can result.

One thing you should guard against is being too trusting. As Rahu ‘the trickster’ is in the 12th house, your own awareness of cheating and being cheated is rather less. You are incapable of cheating others. But you might get moved by someone’s sob-story and get into a mess yourself. Do strike a balance between the 12th house Rahu and 6th house Ketu energies. Rahu and Ketu are natural malefics, so can function well in the dushamsthan combo of 6th and 12th houses but it is better to be consciously aware of what they are upto.

Rahu and Ketu in the 6th 12th house axis

Rahu in the 6th house and Ketu in the 12th house

This is considered to be a good placement. Rahu is a natural malefic so works well in the 6th house. Rahu and Ketu mature late, so their effects are more understandable only after the late 40’s. Ketu is the agent of dissociation so has a natural affinity to the 12th house of secrets and losses. But if there are more malefic influences on them, with no supportive benefics, this can give perhaps the worst results.

Rahu directs the energy of the chart where he is placed. So the choice of service or suffering is brought strongly to the forefront. Work, health, enemies, debts, karma, imbalances, medical issues, etc are more in focus, a career-conscious mind-set. The 6th is the maha-dusham, the highest turbulence in life comes from here. It is a very sensitive house. Rahu here can indulge in activities which can have life time repercussions, so benefic aspects on him are necessary.

Be very careful about selecting your profession, if you are still in your school/college do think carefully on what you would like to do in life. You are ambitious, capable of hard work, quite fearless and can take risks. There are always inimical energies in this position. Enemies will always pop up. So you should be alert, also develop some philosophical background which will help you come to terms with this aspect. Be calculative and do not over-reach.

You can gain from foreign sources, import/export, shipping, long journeys etc. Quite analytical and methodical, if you can take up professions where you help others, doctors, healers, astrologers, etc you will also help yourself. Political career is also possible as you are quite capable of dealing with unsavoury and behind the scene things. A spy or a clever criminal is also possible here. You can exploit loop-holes or anything/anyone else too. Working with drugs, poisons, chemist type of professions. There will be challenges in your life, profession and karmic debts too, but Rahu does not run from them, but faces them head-on. This often gives very good material results. You can use Rahu intelligently to significantly reduce your karmic burden to meet with and work with a lot of people. Such a big chunk of desire-energy in the house of karmic payback can work both ways.

Rahu in the 6th is complemented by Ketu in the 12th. But this Ketu often works by neutralising Rahu’s over-arching behaviour. So you might ignore important things in your work which might cause trouble. There will be some strangeness in the marriage, divorce or affairs outside marriage. Ketu here desires privacy which he does not get. A sense of dissatisfaction may prevail over all relationships. There will be psychic experiences, dreams, visions, meditative states etc which may cause restless sleep. But again these experiences also do not satisfy. There is an underlying sense of grief.

Health remains good overall but death by mysterious or by unknown causes or suddenly without any illness etc is possible. The feet, skin and nerves can cause medical problems. This Ketu can give a spiritual outlook only if the rest of the horoscope allows it. In the 7yrs of Ketu Mahadasha there can be a possibility of a spiritual retreat or a stay in an ashram etc. But in your daily life, try to get some time alone, meditate or something for just 15mins. This will give your Ketu and your past life karma a safe channel. Rather than organised religion, personal approach to faith will be better.

Rahu and Ketu in the 6th 12th house axis

This Rahu-Ketu axis in the 6th – 12th houses requires a lot of balancing between the demands for service and material prosperity and the inner desire for solitude and spiritual growth. Too much of Rahu’s materialism will suppress Ketu’s asceticism which will in some transit/Dasha period burst up and over-whelm the personality. Or the other way around depending on the rest of the chart. This tilt towards the extremes will happen at least once, after which there is a back-lash from the other ignored energy. After this the personality balances better between Rahu and Ketu.

The 6th and 12th axis is, in my opinion, the most sensitive axis as it involves two houses of turmoil. Of these one is the maha-dusham and the other is the house of the unknown. So be very careful in analysing Rahu – Ketu placed here. Extreme or unexpected results are more likely than not.

So before interpreting Rahu’s or Ketu’s position, first check the ascendant sign, the ascendant sign lord and the power of the birth Moon. These three indicate your personality, your surrounding environment and your ability to coordinate between these two. The Moon is your mental strength and the power of your astral self. If these are capable of giving auspicious results, you are consciously more aware and confident about dealing with life and its challenges. Rahu/Ketu here need to be guided by other planets if placed here, if they are let loose they can be quite problematic. So also analyse the signs, the sign lords, other planets if conjunct or aspecting this Rahu/Ketu. Look into Rahu/Ketu’s Nakshatra characteristics for more cues on how they are going to manifest their energies. If you are confident about the Navamsha, do go through it to analyse your planet’s inner potentials.

If your chart as a whole is able to give positive results then this positioning of ‘desire and apathy’ in the most sensitive axis of your chart can be quite good.

How to plan your day using Nakshatra

Newspapers have a section for daily astrological predictions which most of us read very avidly every morning. But have you wondered how these are calculated? Here is an easy method which you can use to gain an insight into your day today.

Vedic astrology is about the Nakshatra, the 27 lunar mansions. The lunar mansion in which your birth Moon was placed is quite important. This indicates your mind-set programmed at birth. Open any Vedic software and put in your birth details, check your Moon Nakshatra also called the Janma/birth Nakshatra and read on.

  • Suppose your birth Moon Nakshatra is Rohini.
  • Check the Nakshatra which the current Moon is transiting in today. Check it for the sunrise time. Suppose it is Chitra for today.
  • Count from Rohini to Chitra both inclusive, it comes to 11.
  • Use this formula: (Count) X 7 / 9
  • Here in our example it will be 11 X 7 / 9
  • The Quotient is 8, we are not bothered about the Quotient, discard it
  • The Remainder is 5, we use this figure further like this,

This remainder figure will give you the following indications,


Remainder = 1 Saturn will influence your day. You might be over worked. The day will be busy in a tiring way. You might miss your lunch-break. Emotionally disturbed with anxiety and nervousness is possible. Or you might need to take your parents to the doctor today. So plan your day properly and try to stick to your schedules. Saturn likes routine and work, so be prepared.

Remainder = 2 Jupiter will influence your day. There is a possibility of monetary gains. Your day will be busy but in a nice way. You might meet people you like talking to, or learn/read something new, or teach something interesting. Might go to a temple or do a good deed today. Good time spent with the family or spouse or elders or people whom you respect. Overall a nice day.

Remainder = 3 Mars will influence your day. You might end up arguing with someone. Be careful driving, you might see accidents on the road. Or get cut or injured while working. Interaction with the police or authorities is possible. You might argue with your siblings/brothers. Your temper may be at the tipping point today so be aware. If you can divert your Martian energy in some sensible way do it first thing in the morning, eg go to the gym.

Remainder = 4 Sun will influence your day. Some typical results will be conflicts created out of self-ego and selfish behaviour. Self-opinions will matter more than coming to a mutually favourable compromise. Can result in overheating or headaches, pitta can go out of balance. If you can put your self-ego aside and focus on the more creative and intelligent facets of the Sun, you can function better today. To unwind try spending time with your children today.

Remainder = 5 Rahu will influence your day. A disturbed schedule today. Arguments are possible, you might be bothered by cheats or persistent salesmen. Avoid taking decisions about major deals or finances today, avoid speculation. Do not try to misguide or cheat someone else too. Sleep might be disturbed and bad dreams are possible. So be on guard today. If you can light one sesame-oil lamp in front of your puja ghar/altar before leaving for the day it can balance out the Rahu-energy. You will be high on energy today, jus remember to use it after consulting your own conscience.

Remainder = 6 Venus will influence your day so a good day can be expected. Office work will be good. Pleasure in relationships. Either with your loved one or in your spiritual practices. You might go shopping, new clothes or cosmetics or on a date or a movie. Read a nice book or buy something which makes you happy even it its as simple as an ice-cream. You may gain in financial transactions and speculations. Try to make the most of your day.

Remainder = 7 Mercury will influence your day. Will be a good time to be creative or learn some skills. Reading or writing is possible. You might get some financial benefits, so can consider investing in stocks etc. May go out with siblings/friends or a short journey is possible. Avoid letting small issues become bigger, use your good humour and willingness to negotiate. Teamwork and communication will be good. Try to make the most of it.

Remainder = 8 Moon will influence your day. You might have good interactions with your mother or aunts. If your boss is a woman you can ask her for that raise today. New things can be initiated, new business or buying a new house or a car. You will have a good time with your family in your house. A good night’s rest and relaxation. Overall the day will be good use it constructively.

Remainder = 0 Ketu will influence your day today. Be careful about whom you meet with today, read your office papers before signing them. You might be absent minded at work today which can cause confusion and issues. There is less interest in materialistic things. But if you pay attention this day can go quite well with religious or spiritual overtones. If you can visit the temple or do some spiritual activity before you leave for office this Ketu energy will be balanced out.

Now sometimes your daily horoscope in the newspaper says that the day will be better after the evening. This is also easy to see. If the currently transiting Moon changes his Naksahtra in the evening, the calculation can be redone to get a new remainder. Eg if the remainder was 1 for the morning’s transit Nakshatra the dominant energy was Saturn. Suppose the Moon shifted to the next Nakshatra in the evening, and suppose the remainder became 2 ie Jupiter dominated. So the energy around you will shift from Saturn-dominant to Jupiter-dominant. Obviously your evening onwards time will be more relaxed than the morning time!

This is based on your birth Moon nakshatra and the transiting Moon’s nakshatra. This calculation will reflect your perceptions. If you are aware of how your emotional context changes, you can control your perceptions. This decides how you react to the issues which you face through out the day. Use Astrology as a tool in your hands to live a happier and more balanced life.



The 12th house, foreign and mysterious

The 12th house does not link to the material life but to the inner growth. It is the house of material limitations but conversely inner limitless-ness. It shows how intricately we are bound by our past lives. Its energies are also linked to liberation either from the physical body or from the manifested creation and attainment of the final enlightenment Moksh.

Of the 12 signs, generally Aries, Taurus, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, Aquarius do not fare well in the 12th house. Then Gemini, Cancer, Virgo and Pisces do face negative situations but with time and patience can come out as an average placement in the 12th house. However Leo and Sagittarius can fare reasonably well in the 12th house.

Of the planets placed in the 12th house, in very brief. Sun can indicate power over enemies but internal fire is weak. Mercury can indicate friends often being hidden enemies, dislike for the seniors. Venus can indicate deviant or too many material desires, often multiple mindless intimate relationships. Moon can indicate secret enemies but generally can overcome them, there is danger to the mental/emotional stability. Mars can indicate bondage, confinement, sadism, suppressed rage, illness, enemies, over-expenditures. Jupiter can indicate deep knowledge, turbulence in family and a spiritual bent of mind. Saturn can indicate internal grief, guilt, fear, sorrow, defeat, obstacles. Rahu is then a deep desire for all things foreign or the  occult. Ketu generates intense desire for spiritual practice and Moksh in the 12th house.

The 12th house, foreign and mysterious

The 12th house is used for determining travel or residence in foreign lands. There is an attraction among young men/ women to settle abroad. In astrological terms having to move away from the birthplace, for whatever reason, is considered an inauspicious result. But in the craze for foreign jobs and green cards, perhaps this generation wants to go through this karma. ‘Foreign’ land means some place different from the place of birth or ancestral land. How far will someone relocate will depend on the power of the 12th house, eg someone may be born in a family in Tawang but live, work and ultimately settle in Mumbai. Or someone born in Chennai will settle in Moscow. To analyse all this, we need a heavy, powerful 12th house capable of giving auspicious results. A significant percentage of the person’s energy must be diverted into the 12th house. First and foremost a strong 12th house and its lord is a must.

  • Earnings from foreign lands. For this, check if the 2nd house or 7th house is in any way connected to the 12th house/ruler. Such placements can also give professions like import/export.
  • But if the 10th house/ruler is also linked here, it can indicate actual work and a life in foreign lands.
  • Relocation and residence to foreign places. Check if the 4th or 9th house/ruler planet are linked to the 12th house/ruler. This will indicate that the residence is away from the place of birth.
  • If especially Rahu is placed in the 12th house or linked with its ruler, he will be attracted to other towns or even other dimensions. Travel or residence to these foreign lands is always indicated. Even if Rahu crosses your 12th house in transit he can give this result of temporarily shifting to a foreign land. Just remember that Rahu is insatiable, so keep his energies directed with your will-power.
  • If there are at least 2-3 of these patters in the chart, the life in foreign lands will be successful.  In this connection, Rahu’s aspect on the 12th house can also act as a catalyst.

Now the 12th house also indicates our repressed passions. But because it is the 12th there will not be a conscious attachment to these comforts. The need is on the sub-conscious or spiritual levels, possibly that is why it is said to represent ‘secret pleasures’. But be careful about interpreting charts like this because this is a comment on the most personal aspects of someone’s life. These aspects are his secrets perhaps secret even from his conscious self.

Sexual matters and intimacy are seen from the 8th and 12th houses together. 8th is the reproductive organs and 12th is the pleasures that drive us on our inner sub-conscious levels. If the 12th house is more powerful in giving results in this regard the person may not be emotionally linked to the act of physical intimacy. This is a tricky analysis and can either indicate mindless disinterest or mindless over-indulgence. Especially if the 5th lord or the 7th lord get involved here or if the 12th lord gets placed in the 5th or 7th houses do read the charts with due care. In fact if there are malefics associated with them then it can lead to deviant behaviour. So do not jump to conclusions, check the birth moon chart, the navamsha also to get a more balanced judgement. Now physical intimacy with someone else is the lower energy version of a person’s spiritual connection with his own higher self. So such a placement with benefics can grant significant spiritual growth too. A strong 12th house and benefic powerful 12th ruler planet can indicate a strong personality who can leave his personal ego, personal desires and personal satisfaction and grow spiritually. So to judge the spectrum from several mindless intimate relationships without much emotional involvement, to disinterest to spiritual growth, you should read more charts and practice more.

Ketu in the 12th grants detachment from the manifested created on the innermost levels so is conducive for Moksh if the rest of the horoscope allows it. He is apathy in the house of losses so somehow works quite well. However can cause non-interest in physical relationships and loved ones and cause unexpected losses in money etc. Both Rahu and Ketu are very subtle and are considered malefic. If not directed with firm intention these two forces are quite capable of causing havoc in your life so analyse them properly and use their energies as you want to.

The 12th house, foreign and mysterious

Finally some not so good combinations related to the 12th house. A damaged 12th house often indicates a cruel mindset. Malefics in the 12th house almost always indicate eye troubles, with the left eye suffering more. If the 7th house ruler is placed in a damaged 12th house, problems from spouse always. Ascendant lord in the 12th house, weak body prone to hidden diseases which might erupt suddenly. Similarly lord of 12th in the 12th house can indicate hidden weakness of the body. If the 12th house is damaged, pay particular attention to Rahu’s transits over it as it can trigger the weakness.

New students in astrology will now read the worst possible meanings in their 12th house placements. But do not judge yourself so harshly, you chose this placement at your birth, trust your higher self. Every placement brings you more firmly on your spiritual path, especially the 12th house. These lessons are from your own past lives. There is always some unfinished lesson or some unfinished duty which you have chosen in this 12th house pattern. So remain calm and dispassionate, look for the good in every event, there is always something positive.

Delve Deeper into the D9 Navamsha

There was a question on Navamsha analysis so this post is one step deeper into it. I like breaking things down so that the topic does not get over-whelming. With time all these patterns and analysis become very routine and you see it all in one glance sometimes intuitively. But first practice, you need a pencil paper and time. If you break the whole concept into small parts it is quite easy. Navamsha analysis can get quite detailed with several standard authors giving even more techniques for use. The entire life story can be seen only with the navamsha chart, but then you will need to read about all the rules for interpreting the 108 individual navamsha. (I would recommend CS Patel’s book for the more advanced student to start with.)

The Navamsha is a very important divisional chart and one should be aware of the basics at least. I have written about the first step in Navamsha analysis here. Read it first and then continue reading this post. This concept of Rashi-tulya navamsha is used only in the divisional chart 9. The birth chart signs are compared to the Navamsha in this method.

Our example chart, Aleister Crowley, the genius occultist of recent times, the creator of the Thoth tarot deck. His birth details are 12th Oct 1875, 11:43 pm Leamington UK. The birth horoscope and Navamsha are as follows

Birth chart Aliester Crowley

Navamsha Aleister Crowley
Navamsha Aleister Crowley

Now break up the birth horoscope and the Navamsha like this.

  • Ascendant degree – D1 – Cancer and D 9 – Scorpio
    • Scorpio is the 5th house of the D1
  • Sun – D1 – Virgo and D9 – Virgo
    • Virgo is the 3rd house of the D1
  • Mercury – D1 – Libra and D9 – Aries
    • Aries is the 10th house of the D1
  • Venus – D1 – Libra and D9 – Libra
    • Libra is the 4th house of the D1
  • Moon – D1 – Pisces and D9 – Cancer
    • Cancer is the 1st house of the D1
  • Mars – D1 – Capricorn and D9 – Capricorn
    • Capricorn is the 7th house of the D1
  • Jupiter – D1 – Libra and D9 – Aquarius
    • Aquarius is the 8th house of the D1
  • Saturn – D1 – Capricorn and D9 – Virgo
    • Virgo is the 3rd house of the D1
  • Rahu – D1 – Pisces and D9 – Scorpio
    • Scorpio is the  house of the D1
  • Ketu – D1 – Virgo and D9 – Taurus
    • Taurus is the 11th house of the D1

In the birth chart, check the signs placed in the 1st 4th  9th 10th 11th houses. If there are planets placed in these signs Navamshas they will give good results – eg in our example chart, planets placed in the Navamsha of Cancer, Libra, Pisces, Aries and Taurus navamsha have added positivity. ie the planets Moon, Venus, Mercury and Ketu.

In the birth chart check the signs placed in the 6th 8th and the 12th house. Now check if there are any planets placed in their Navamshas. In our example chart these signs are Sagittarius, Aquarius and Gemini. The planets placed in these sign navamshas will add negativity, ie Jupiter in Aquarius navamsha. In your birth chart and Navamsha do analyse these positions carefully. Any planet in these positions will add to your misery. They might seem good in the birth chart but their hidden weakness will be evident in the Navamsha. They will give some negativity, mental or physical illness is possible, or disrepute depending on the position of the planet in the birth chart-D1 and the keywords of the planet.

While reading a chart there are nothing like an accurate yes/no, there are always gradations depending on the other placements, eg if the planet is in 6th house in the D1 and the navamsha owned by the 6th house sign ie vargottam and is exalted too. So how do you interpret this? There will be uncomfortable results there is no doubt the 6th house placement of the D1 will give its results. But the personality will accept them and grow. You might have seen such people who roll with the bad times and seem to come out stronger. The negative results will manifest but there will be some saving grace to the situation. Seeing this also comes with practice and observing people around you.

If your birth chart has no planets in the 6th, 8th or 12th houses. Dnd if you are suffering from specific issues linked with the keywords of these houses. Check out if there are any planets placed in the navamshas owned by these signs of these dushamsthan houses. You might get some pointers here.

Especially the 8th house sign in the birth chart is the one responsible for the most traumatic catastrophic changes in our lives. In our example this is the Aquarius sign. The nine Navamshas owned by the 8th house sign are called the Nidhan-amsha. The planets placed in these Navamsha give quite inauspicious results.

In our example it is Jupiter in Aquarius navamsha, the Nidhan-amsha for this chart. If you analyse Crowley’s life, the organized religion around him was Christianity. He was called the most evil man by Christians. He followed all sorts of non-Christian concepts in life, from Hinduism, to Egyptian philosophy to everything else. He had several messed up marriages, affairs etc. He was into weird occult stuff from calling in spirits etc which a regular Jupiter would shy away from. This Jupiter granted him things of the occult which otherwise he wouldn’t have been able to access. His public fame and groups were all liked to this Jupiter in Aquarius navamsha, as the Nidhan-amsha.

And the signs of the birth chart placed in the rest of the houses ie 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 7th houses. The signs are respectively, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio and Capricorn. Check if there are planets placed in their navamshas. Ie, Sun, Saturn, Rahu, ascendant degree and Mars. These planets will give neutral results.

So now you have your second layer of interpretations from the Navamsha. The Navamsha is getting to know your planet better. You have to overlay this on the first layer which has come from the initial analysis. Will write some more about Navamsha analysis in my next posts.



The 12th house, support or sabotage

The 12th house and its energies are often glossed over in readings. It can be an uncomfortable house and needs to be understood in the right perspective. The sign/ planets connected to it secretly and unconsciously support or sabotage your mind/ body. The energies move inwards, so if there are several planets or major planets here or the house is as a whole incapable of giving good results then selfish behaviour and unhealthy self-obsession can result. If this sign/ planets is unable to give good results, then there may be depraved behaviour, unnatural or self-destructive patterns, disturbed spiritual energy, restlessness, inability to rest or insidious damage to the self/environment. If you can consciously work through these and come to terms with their expression, you can achieve a lot in in the inner worlds.

The 12th house is the karmic imprint of your immediate past life. These are your strength/ weakness from that life which you used as your current life’s base. Inauspiciously placed sign/ planets here indicate that you have decided to repay the negative karmic debts from your past lives. The 1st house is derived from the 12th house, so you are compulsorily required to rebalance them now. One way you can make sense of a painful 12th house is, to understand that you are repaying negative debts owed from past several lives to a large number of people. It will ultimately be for the good.

The 12th house, support or sabotage

Isolation is a very common motif of the 12th house. Banishment from the home-town even under the guise of better prospects elsewhere is still an internal problem. Your work may require isolation, you work in a research laboratory but you are still isolated from your society. Or punitive, you might be confined in prison or places apart from society because of your own actions. Prisons are meant for those who misuse their physical abilities and engage in criminal actions. This is the retribution in this life administered by the legal system of the society. The mentally challenged are those who misused their intellect in their past lives and in this life are denied access to their mental processes. These are also isolated from the society and/ or confined in mental asylums. This is karmic retribution administered by their own conscience at the moment of death of their past life. Similarly for physically handicapped people who do not have or cannot use their limbs. Here presumably the individual is required to reflect and regain their perspective and rebalance themselves.

The experiences of your mother as you were being created in her womb and your early childhood upto 7yrs are also linked to the 12th house things. If you have major planets in your 12th house try to think back on what your parents told you to not do, ‘don’t cry, don’t be late, don’t be a baby, don’t.. ‘. This is an expression of your 12th house energy. This ‘don’t..’ has shaped your life in a very deep way and even as an adult trying to do those forbidden things can cause internal stress and discomfort. But you are an adult now and these things need to be resolved else you might carry them onwards to your next life. So try to bear through the sub-consciously felt terror and let these 12th house impressions systematically out in the open. If you try to deny them and push them again beneath the surface they will continue creating problems.

If you were told ‘don’t be a crybaby’, you might have problems expressing your genuine emotional hurts. It is a deep automatic compulsion which you cannot overcome. If you even think that you will tell your friend that you are feeling hurt, your BP will shoot up, fingers go cold, heartbeat accelerates, it is a in-built compulsion to stay silent, there is fear. This is an extreme example, but people do feel like this about their 12th house things. Eg Saturn in 12th house, you will never be late, if you even think of being late, you will get an anxiety attack. Try to consciously examine this in-built behaviour and gradually reduce its hold over you. If you think about these things, analyse them and gradually understand them, your fear of them will reduce.

The 12th house is energies which are not allowed expression in your conscious life. So these churn and accumulate below the surface and at the critical point explode spectacularly.  The more something is denied expression, the more severely it bursts out. This can manifest as a disease which is detected at the very terminal stages. Or can be an emotional breakdown. Or a break in whatever keywords of the sign/planets associated. Over-reactions. So do pay attention to the transits and the Dasha periods. Also give yourself an outlet once in a while.

Eg a Mars in the 12th house won’t let you lose your temper much. This is called a Manglik placement. So give him an outlet, go to the gym and bring out all your inner aggression there, learn a martial art perhaps. Regulate these energies before they erupt in disorganised dangerous and damaging forms. Now what happens when you do explode. Eg you have 12th Mars and your husband is at the receiving end. He has forgotten your birthday and the last time you raged was a more than a year ago. So now in an instant, you will remember every tiny thing your husband did to irritate you in the past year. Everything which you didn’t react to in that long time will come to the surface in one red flash. That entire anger will be like lava pouring out. Your husband is in shock because he thinks you have perfect temper, you do not rage like this. And you feel your every word to be justified. You rage till you are drained, now you might cry as this is a form of release. Result, possibly an irrevocable break in the relationship. Your 12th house has sabotaged you. This can happen triggered by typical transits/ Dasha periods.

Now the 12th house is the resource from which your persona/ environment has been sourced. So even if you are not aware of its energies you radiate them! Eg Saturn here will make you appear very strict and disciplined. As a senior you will be feared by your subordinates. You will come across as a fair but rigid boss. And all the while you might have a very different idea of what image you are projecting as you are unaware of this Saturnine aspect of yourself! Now what you project, you will attract too. So here, you will attract even more Saturnine energies which do not support but will suppress you even more, a vicious cycle will start. If you ever become aware of the Saturn in you and balance it, you will find life becomes subtly less restrictive.

The 12th house, support or sabotage

Now a damaged 12th house will spill over most on the 4th and 8th houses, the Moksh trikon. The 12th and 8th houses are the dushamsthan, houses of turmoil and the biggest dushamsthan, the 6th house, is the mirror of the 12th house! So you can rebalance your 12th house by directly working on it or indirectly through these other houses.

The 4th is the astral depths, comfort, safety, emotions, residence, vehicles, lands, mother, nutrition, traditions, home-culture etc. If you actively increase these energies in your life either by experiencing them yourself or giving them to others as charity you support your 12th house too. Heavy energies in the 12th house often deny or restrict nurture, and the person often repeats the same with his child. but if he can become aware and change, get involved and nurture his child, this helps him balance his own energies too.

Most effective remedies are helping out at orphanages and old-age homes (it is a second childhood in a way). We help the most vulnerable in the society thus address the deepest vulnerability within our own selves.

The 6th is karmic service, debts, diseases, enemies etc basically serve or suffer. Your understanding of karmic debts and your ways of repaying them is all here. There are two options, either fall ill yourself or help those who are ill. This is free will, you choose. So if you choose to proactively study your 6th house and work on ways to repay the energy debt this will help channelising your 12th house energies too. Eg you see people with Rahu in the 12th house often settling in foreign lands. These people choose to get disconnected from the land and everything of their forefathers and go serve in a strange land. From the energy point of view leaving the homeland is always a problem. (A friend lives in the USA, has non-stop dreams of her ancestors. The easiest solution is to feed a cow, give her a chapati and a lump of jaggery. In India, desi humped cows are all around. There in the USA there are no desi humped cows and she says if she feeds an animal like this she might get put in jail! But her ancestors want the energy so the dreams continue.)

The 8th house can also be used to link to the energies of the 12th house. This can range from occult practices, tantra, private meditation, manipulation of pran/ vital energies or the other extreme being several sexual affairs.

Then the planets connected to the 12th house can naturally be used to channelise their energies in a proper way. Eg If you have Mercury there, write as much as you can! Another very effective way of rebalancing the 12th house energies is to use your dreams. I have written about using a dream journal, this can be a very good way of channelising your dreams or doing targeted dreaming which helps rebalancing the energies of the sub-conscious states. So the 12th house is a very important house and you should be consciously aware of it. Being aware of your own vulnerability is a big thing. Do not shy away from it, analyse it and the planets placed in it carefully. Too many planets in the 12th house or the ascendant lord or the Moon or the Sun in the 12th house always indicate physical and mental weakness. Be careful of the health of your body and mind. Always remember to put yourself, your concerns and your interests first. This is important. If you feel exhausted or drained, take care of yourself first. How much ever, difficult it is to communicate, seek professional help too.
