Why different techniques in Jyotish

A simple post today, in response to a feedback that my blog is getting too astrologically rarefied. 

We understand if a planet is going to give auspicious or inauspicious effects by analysing their natural natures, functional roles, linked signs, houses, their several strengths, the avasthas, the yogs, aspects, divisional charts and so on. There is an over-abundance of techniques in Jyotish that the student often gets confused. But these techniques are necessary as you are analysing real life. No real situation is black or white, there are always so many variables, extenuating factors, mitigating circumstances in every interaction and in every situation. 

Generally we use the ascendant sign as the centre of the horoscope for our predictions or the birth Moon or the birth position of the concerned planet. This is how we learn Jyotish, in steps, by breaking down the analysis into bite-sized portions. But real life does not work like that, it is a connected whole. Every house, every sign, every planet, is at the center of your chart. All these represent various energies that are present in you and in your life, all the time. As an astrologer, you have to be able to combine all these data to get the answer which makes sense to you. (And what makes sense to you may not make sense to me.) So we have a plethora of techniques. Every planet contributes to every situation in some way or the other. As an astrologer, you will have to judge the different principles, concepts, case-studies etc and come to a conclusion. So though there will be several Jyotish software and apps, the real predictions will always come from a human Jyotishi. 


Analysing a planet is a complex process so here are some relatable examples to help understand why we use the techniques we do.

Eg Your mother has a certain idea about your personality. You behave with her in a certain way and she reciprocates in a certain way. But your father has a completely different idea of you which is accurate from his perspective. Your behaviour with him is different from the way you interact with your Mom. Similarly your spouse, child, friends, business partners, boss, staff, everyone thinks of you in their own different way, each of which is perfectly valid from their point of view. You interact with them in different ways and they respond differently. Thus learn to see the planets in several different ways depending on the question that the client asks, the situation that we put the planet into, the environment he is in, the actions he is supposed to take. 

Eg A strong Sun will give power and a superb political reach, genius level intelligence, but most likely a limited connect with the spouse, inability to create deeply felt one-one relationships etc. You cannot reduce a planet to just ‘favourable’ or ‘unfavourable’, the context and the perception of the ‘desired result’ is crucial.

Eg Suppose your 2nd house is very strong, you are the ideal family member. In this, your 7th house is below par, so individual interactions with the spouse cause strain. And the 5th house is fortified by benefics, so your interactions with your child are pleasing. And the 4th and 10th house lords are conjunct, so you feel happier when you are interacting with both parents together. In the same family setting, there are subtly different results depending on the planets/ houses and their strengths.

Eg You want to get married, you have clear criteria for the ideal husband. You find this guy and marry him. Next you want to start a business. You have your clear criteria for an ideal business partner. You love your husband and appreciate his qualities as a ‘husband’, but you do not go into business with him as he does not have the qualities you want in your ‘business partner’. Both husband and business partner are primarily seen from the 7th house. For husband, the 5th 8th 9th etc also play an important role. For a business, the 10th 11th would be additionally relevant. Similarly for the planets. What is it that you want the planet to do?

Eg You have a job which involves working in office and going for field tours. You like the tour part as travelling feels exciting but you feel suffocated sitting at the office desk. Main reason is that 5 of your planets are in moveable signs. This is your innate nature, abilities and disabilities. Similarly a planet and the signs have several linked activities. They feel comfortable powering a particular activity and neutral/ uncomfortable about the others. Thus analyse the innate nature of the planet/sign and combine it with the functional nature for insights on channelising his energy in the work he likes doing best.

Eg You get a significant promotion, power and visibility increases, but you are posted in a different town. An enviable job profile and family time reduced to a weekend/ month. An outcome is good from one perspective but not from the other. This change occurred when the trigger planet Saturn’s transit in Capricorn was favourable from the ascendant sign, Leo but not from the birth Moon in Taurus. Same planet gives different results from different viewpoints.

Eg You do house work and office work, but enjoy the housework more. It gives you more satisfaction seeing your neat and clean house. Your 4th house lord is in Jagrut state and 10th house lord is in Sushupti. You are more aware when you are setting things right in your house rather than in the office.  The Avasthas are used to gain more insights of this sort. A planet in Jagrut avastha is more aware of the surroundings, more practical, more physical world oriented. A Swapna avastha planet is more imaginative, creative, willing to experiment etc. And a planet in the Sushupti avastha is in deep sleep, he is highly content and not really connected to the material things around him. Someone I know has all his planets in the Swapna or Sushupti avastha. He is not bothered about the material world, is genius level intelligent, creative etc but does not have the least desire to put his these things into physical form. 

Eg Your mindset is more suited for teaching small children, 4th house Mercury. But you are a officer supervising a prison, 10th lord is aspected by Saturn connected to the 12th house. This is diametrically opposite from your natural inclinations, but professional ethics require that you perform. This example is somewhat similar to what a planet feels in his Maran karak sthan.


Eg You are a sportsperson, a long distance swimmer. You dress up and get ready to compete, but you are taken to a desert and dropped into the ‘sea of sand’ and told to ‘swim’ your way across. This is the concept of debilitation. The environment of the sign is completely unsuitable to the nature of the planet. Such planets are supremely uncomfortable and unable to do much positive stuff.

Eg You go for a movie with your girlfriend. Her Dad sitting in the row right behind you staring at you. This cramps your style. Thus aspects of planets like Saturn and Mars do not allow the others to act freely, put restrictions or threaten violence.

Eg You and your business partner are meeting a client. You set up the meeting in your office room. This important interaction is happening in your own room so you are more confident during the meeting. The client is more impressed by you. Your firm gets the account and the investor insists that you personally handle it. So if there are 2 planets in a house and has one of them has more power, more confidence then he gets the deciding vote on the activities of that house. Evaluate this sort of power using the Shad Bala concepts.

Eg in a similar meeting you and your partners are trying to secure a client. You are the one seated at the head of the table and because of your leading position you aggressively push the firm’s agenda. Again the client wants you to handle the account. This is the Graha yuddha, where the planet at the top position dominates.

Eg A client is trying to decide between your and a rival firm. You tell him that yours is a 4th generation firm, in the same business for the past 100yrs. The rival firm is 2yrs old. You get the client. The power of the result is rooted in the divisional charts. If its source is deep within, then more complete results are expected. This is the Vimshopak Bala.

Eg A client is trying to find more about your firm before he engages you. He asks around and 7 different people come forward and say that you are a very good worker and your firm is the best. They also pledge to support your firm. This is the Ashtakvarga, where you analyse how the other planets support the planet in question. 

Eg Cancer ascendant, Venus exalted in the 9th house. The 9th house is the bhavat bhavam of the 11th. So he will give gains, ancestors will help, elderly female teachers will teach, female deities will give blessings, it will be wonderful. But he is the badhak lord so these 9th things fail to support unless the person understands how the Badhak energies create his life foundations. Badhak is the difference between overt and subtle results. The barrier you have to deeply understand and firmly cross.


Writing these tiny examples felt like writing mini stories. But this is what you have to do. The planets also represent real life situations. So do not always think of them to be esoteric and spiritual, they are also regular guys operating in a fixed system of rules and regulations.

The very many techniques of Jyotish are necessary and each one gives clarity on one subtle aspect of the situation. So before getting into the math and tables of the technique, try to find out what its concept is all about. This way you can avoid asking questions like, ‘ashtakvarga is good, but planet strength is low, so will be planet be favourable or unfavourable’. There is no answer to these sort of questions. Work out for yourself how this planet performs in your life by studying your chart and life situations.

An important component is the effect of these material results on the Mind. How much ever ‘good’ the result may be, if it does not give satisfaction to the Mind then it cannot considered to be auspicious. Analysing this part can be tricky as this depends on the individual perspective.

Eg. Your 4th house has your 11th house lord in it and Ketu is conjunct the 8th lord in your birth chart. In transit Ketu shifts into your 4th house. You receive a huge amount of money from your mother. But it comes after her sudden death, as a legacy in her will. Would you consider this to be a favourable or unfavourable result?


Another example, you know that the position of a planet from the Ascendant sign will give physical, tangible results. Suppose your Sun in the 4th house, this is how you will analyse. This is just a small glimpse of the very many things which this simple placement can tell.

  • Typical 4th house keywords so he will give you a job in the government set-up. The residence and vehicle will also be from the government. Your mother will be a government employee. She will be a Sun dominated personality.
  • If this Sun is aspected by benefics, your inner motivation will be to work for your homeland and protect it in some way or the other. You are a patriot at heart. 
  • If this Sun is aspected by malefics then though you work for the government you will try to put in your selfish motives into it, perhaps engage in corruption or behave in ways inimical to the nation or at the extreme become a traitor. There will be loads of self ego.
  • If this Sun is the Badhak lord for your ascendant sign, then he will give a slow growth in the profession, ie bring in hurdles from time to time. He will cause you stress from your mother, homeland, landed property etc.
  • If this Sun is the ruler of the 2nd placed in the 4th then you will earn significant money and make close connections in the governmental and political setup during the course of your job.
  • If this Sun is conjunct your 7th house lord, then you will meet your spouse in your government job or the spouse will be a government employee too.
  • If this Sun is in the Sushupti avastha, these things granted by him will not affect your ego as you go about your work. 


Finally, yes/ no questions. ‘Should I do so-and-so thing or not? Should I marry this person? Should I take up this job? Should I do this mantra?’. Yes or No, the questioner wants clear directions because he does not want to decide for himself.

And clients get addicted to astrology sessions. Following directions is more comforting than deciding for oneself. Once I heard an astrologer boasting that ‘—— person does not do anything unless he asks me first’.  Most people are scared to take decisions because if something goes wrong, they will have no one to blame for it. A practitioner should never answer Yes and No questions. eg If you tell a client, ‘yes, get married to this woman’, you take on part of his karma on the energy levels. On practical levels, if something goes wrong the client will blame you. For the client too, this sort of question is wrong. He is asking for clear direction, giving the astrologer the power to decide what he should be doing. This interferes with his free will and has karmic implications.

The astrologer and the client have different perspectives. Eg If I see problems due to ancestors, I would suggest he repay their debts. A ritual of about 3-4 hrs and some Rs5000/-. I might think this to be urgent because I may see those angry spirits standing behind the client. He may not. So I suggest and leave it at that. He knows the solution, whether to do it now or later or not do it at all is his free will, nothing to do with me.

A genuine astrologer will open your horoscope and tell you things about yourself, the situation and lay out the possible options. If the horoscope is capable of giving good results, there will be more and potentially auspicious options. If the horoscope is of lower quality, malefic influences and uncomfortable planets, the number of options are lesser and the potential benefits will be lesser. He will discuss the options and suggest remedies. But the choice on which option to act on is wholly the client’s. The client is responsible for his own life and should take his own decisions.

Everyone should take responsibility for what happens to them in life. You can ask your parents, your spouse, your teacher or your astrologer for their opinions. Also request your source of faith to give you the intelligence to choose the correct path and the courage to walk on it. But the final choice, the action and its implications are yours alone.

    Dear Tejaswini, Hari Om!

    Loved today’s write-up.

    In the cacophony of opinions, advice or expectations ….the voice of our own Atma kripa is often left unheard.

    The complex grid of changing energies in which we live moment to moment….and the final resolve that our karmic journey should and can be ours alone…. This is the summum bonum of Jyotish. Well-said!!

    Wishing you a blessed Navaratri!

    Warm regards, Vishakha

    Another beautifully written article! Great ma’am!


  3. Shala October 3, 2021 / 5:16 pm

    Hello maam.
    Extensive article on so many levels…. Cleared out a lot for most(I think)
    Was reading an observation ( presumably quoted first by a single astrologer then subsequently copy pasted by couple of dozen more as is the norm these days) …
    That any graha in cancer sign or any planet in 4 th house( house of comfort) means you can’t be doing much work , you must sit back n literally chill because it’s opposite to tenth house of profession and work.
    If you do go out to exert yourself apparently that’s worst thing native can do.
    I personally found it extremely absurd because I pulled out several charts and I didn’t see it apply anywhere.
    A top us female chef rose to the top in the dasha of 4 th house planet.
    Two top tech entrepreneur of the world established their companies in their 4 th house planet dasha.
    M. K. Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri were leading hectic political lives during planets placed in ‘cancer sign’ dasha.
    I have seen charts of people who lost jobs when running dasha of planets placed in Capricorn or tenth house
    Hence the supposed above dictum made no sense to me.
    I don’t think the single dictum of this nature can decide it. Please guide maam.


    • astrologerbydefault October 3, 2021 / 8:47 pm

      Hi there
      One dictum cant b applied everywhere like this.
      There have to b patterns in main chart, D9 and other relevant DC fr a tangible result

    Namaste Ma’am
    Great article as always, i was actually thinking of all the different scenarios you’ve explained and this article showed up at the right time – and it sums up well. Very aptly said and explained, a single planetary placement or conjunction says a lot and is important to weigh things properly and know where to apply these concepts

    Hi Tejaswiniji

    Very fascinating article.

    Recently I’ve started doing dhyan with soham and I feel like I get very angry/aggressive after doing this japa. Also, I sleep less at night when I do soham, often get scary dreams of ghosts and stuff like that. (Like last night I saw this old lady ghost touching me between the eyebrows and I could not see anything.)

    Could it be that the mantra’s energies are not suiting me or is all this psychological and I’m reading too much into it.



    • astrologerbydefault October 3, 2021 / 8:44 pm

      Hi there
      Every living being does soham with every breath.
      Being aware of it is the simplest yet the most profound sadhana.
      If u are not sure about it, if u dont want to, dont do it.
      Maybe ur past life karma are not allowing u to.


      • Aditya October 3, 2021 / 9:04 pm

        Thank you for the reply.

        Very interesting what you said about the karma, can you please elaborate it? What type of karmas can deny a specific type of sadhana?


  6. arnabc21 October 4, 2021 / 5:14 pm

    Hi Tejaswini-ji,

    Over the last 20 years, I read a lot of spiritual books, biographies of saints, vedanta and astrology. But slowly it dawned that without a personal experience of God, this will remain a theory.

    Finally the lockdown and some deep personal issues, enabled me to start sincerely with my personal sadhana. Have been following your wonderful and insightful blog for more than a year. Your writings on Devi, Mantras and Homa have been very useful, since you write from a position of realization and not intellectual understanding. Have been doing a daily japa of Navarana mantra and weekly homa using some sections from Devi Saptashati .

    I dont have a guru, nor any abilities to sense energies. Sometimes it feels, very mechanical. Do you have any suggestions that can help one understand, if the prayers reach Mother. I realize that a year of sadhana, means nothing at all. How does one become worthy of having an awareness of her infinite grace?


    PS: Apologies, for the double post. Not sure, if the last one was submitted .


    • astrologerbydefault October 5, 2021 / 7:50 am

      Hi there
      Everyone has an internal guru at the third eye.

      If intention is strong enough an instant of focus is enough.

      Ask Her this question and request Her to tell u the answer in any way she thinks fit. Eg dreams or some event


  7. Avinash October 4, 2021 / 6:14 pm

    Namaste Mam,

    When looking at the chart from the Moon’s perspective, do we still use the Bhava-chalit concept? If so, do we need to consider the degree of the Moon as the exact centre of the house just like the Ascendant?

    Thank you!


    • astrologerbydefault October 5, 2021 / 7:47 am

      Hi there
      And also frm every planet too fr planet-wise charts if u want to see how they work

    Superb write up!!! Loved all the clear examples given… especially the one on Saturn/Mars aspects…😃 literally cracked me up…😀

    Just love the way you present ideas!! Your mercury (probably dharmesh himself) & 9th house (to take your students along, with so much interest) must be strong!!

    Way to go Madamji…. onward & upward..🙏🙏

    Harih Om🙏


  9. venkateshkadali October 5, 2021 / 5:50 pm

    Hari Om,

    My ask might not be specifically relevant to this post, however want to know your view as you have expertise in understanding how this universe runs and who we are.

    Can a person/ soul who desires for liberation or moksh think that I am beyond impact of planets although they are giving results of karma by controlling 5 elements in the meat/body? The reason why I am asking this is, if birth chart of soul taken there can be numerous charts as chart varies with each birth and place where soul is taking birth, example soul taking birth in brahma lok after living body on earth, so there may be no impact of all 7 planets in brahma lok ( I am ignoring rahu and ketu as they are not real planets, rahu Maya is reason for birth and ketu for moksh). Can a person who wishes reaching vaikunt/kailash or merging in brahma jyothi can ignore all impacts of planets and just rely on guru who takes to ultimate?


    • astrologerbydefault October 5, 2021 / 7:05 pm

      Hi there
      this does happen, the awareness goes so subtle that the effects of the graha on the physical body are not perceived as ‘change’,
      the only ones who are in this state are the Jivan mukt ie the Satguru.
      wrote on jivan mukti nirgun moksh etc, use the index page

      we do not ‘take birth’ in Brahma lok,
      wrote on sagun mukti, krama mukti, devayan, the lok that you go to after physical death, use the index page

      how can you ignore Rahu Ketu? in any analysis of the spiritual these two and the two luminaries have paramount roles

      one has to rely on the Guru, else how will one reach the Self?

      if you want to go to Kailas Vaikunth Brahmalok etc then you can also rely on your deities.

        Madamji, of the 4 trikonas, if the moksha trikona scores the maximum score/rupas , does that indicate significant spiritual evolution for the native? Are there any standard numbers/ measures / proportion for these trikonas’ strength to know the level of evolution possible in this life?

        Many thanks for the guidance 🙏

        Harih Om🙏


      • astrologerbydefault October 6, 2021 / 11:05 pm

        Hi there
        a strong moksh trikon does help
        but unless you have a strong dharma trikon you will not find it so easy to start the path,

    You seem to be a very wise woman and I love reading your blog too. May I ask why don’t you want to do a good deed by adopting a stray dog and nurturing one? You’ll be changing their life and getting more blessings too.


    • astrologerbydefault October 5, 2021 / 7:38 pm

      Hi there
      i may seem to be wise or not, it is your perception of me.
      it is again nothing to do with who i am.

      i know what karma was linked to me and i have done it. done it to the limits of which no one can even imagine.
      do not suggest things for me to do, as you do not know what i do or have to do.
      if you think that this act is a good deed, do it yourself.

      even writing this blog, it is a direction from my Satguru. when i was about 20yrs old, he specifically directed me to pass on all that he has told me, and in English. if you are reading it, its coz my Satguru’s wish.

    Hari Om, thanks for your views. I am not expert of astrology, so not fully aware to comment on Rahu and Ketu, so my bad comment. If possible and if you are okay to, can you write something about how atma pradakshan helps to get rid of sins as I read somewhere that atma pradakshna helps soul.

    Madam can men wear gold rings for ears,is their any benefit astrologically.


    • astrologerbydefault October 5, 2021 / 8:39 pm

      Hi there
      yes. but wear in both ears lobes at the center.
      it will help your pineal gland and thus the entire body/mind.

      Karnabhed is a sanskar, a compulsory thing for all followers of Sanatan dharma.
      we Marathi people pierce the earlobes of a 16day baby, boys and girls.
      men in my family wear gold rings/kundal or diamonds.

    Namaste mam,

    Can we do mantra jaap, while we sit on bed? Or should we always use aasan? can mantra jaap be done while walking, travelling, in bathroom, sleeping in bed, cooking ? When I say mantra, it could be sohum, om namo maha hanumate namaha, sri sukta, siddha kunjika stotra, vishnu sahasranaama, bhagavad gita shloka. Can we say mantra when we get up early in the morning before Shuddhi.
    Please advice.


    • astrologerbydefault October 6, 2021 / 8:24 am

    Hello ma’am,
    How can we interpret interaction of planet in terms of chakra? Like if Saturn is aspecting sun then what it means to muladhar chakra and crown chakra?


    • astrologerbydefault October 6, 2021 / 8:29 am

      Hi there
      ‘Chakra’ is an over hyped word. Most people have neither felt nor seen it and cannot really do anything about it. No one really understands them.
      focus on the basics first.
      If u are doing some sadhana it will be shown to u.

      Wrote a few posts on these topics.


  15. Shala October 6, 2021 / 12:09 pm

    Hello maaam
    You have given so many examples for ppl to read and interpret it out for themselves.
    I have powerful sun in kendra and powerful placement of yogkarak saturn.
    One of the translation of that though for me personally is that I treat people equally.
    Whether it maybe janitor of my work/ study place or the director or head. Its beyond me to differentiate people based on status or money.
    So the result is the ‘ lower ranked employees’ think am most polite person to deal with, the heads of departments think am overly self respecting and unbending with authority😀 … Though I treat both categories exact same way. Not more not less.


  16. S October 6, 2021 / 9:56 pm

    Respected Madam,
    Thanks so much for this post. Countless readers have already mentioned that the knowledge you share is precious, I am one of them. I have read many replies in addition to the post that have really touched me, which prompted me to actually write a humble post request, of course to your entire convenience.

    I have read your post on Forgive yourself to heal yourself, which has helped me so much.

    If it is possible for you Madam, could you share your valuable insights on healing from psychological trauma ?

    Some traumatic events occur in life that leave people broken, and I have known people who were bereft of their will to live after this event, I myself have experienced such deep events, and the memories of abuse keep coming back.

    I apologize for my bother, and I understand very well your busy schedule, I feel so lost, hence I thought I could ask for your valuable insights.

    Dhanyawad with folded hands Madam.


    • astrologerbydefault October 6, 2021 / 11:02 pm

      Hi there
      keep doing your mantra, that is the only thing that will eventually help clear out the issue from the roots
      its all about the perspective, if your mind remains stuck in the pain of the situation it will keep on poisoning your life. so train it to focus on the mantra, it heals itself

    Namaste ma’am.

    I’m a learner and often make mistakes like most of the people learning astrology do – coming to wrong conclusions. I’m thinking of consolidating points related to various house placements and signs for ascendants – and they would be accurate key points; i’ve learnt till now. Is there a good book that i can refer that describes the results of planets going into various houses and signs ? (maybe my question is too broad)


    • astrologerbydefault October 6, 2021 / 11:04 pm

      Hi there
      i have listed out the references and most of the useful authors in the page ‘books’
      see what suits your mind


  18. P October 6, 2021 / 11:20 pm

    Dear Tejaswini,

    I had to comment here as the comment section on the specific article was closed. I have Jupiter aspecting Venus in 4/10 axis respectively (difference of 5 degrees) in D1, with Ketu’s aspect on Venus and Rahu and Jupiter mutual aspect. I wanted to read a bit more about this mutual aspect of Jupiter and Venus and I was looking for textual sources to help me understand this particular aspect better. Could you point me towards this direction?

    Interestingly, I also have my Moon in Scorpio, Rahu in the 8th in Sagittarius and Saturn in 9th in Capricorn with Ascendent Venus. My moon is in the 9th house in Sagittarius in my D9 chart and both Jupiter and Venus are exalted in D9. At the moment I’m looking for some spiritual direction through astrology and meditation but it is not so easy. Would you have some guidance for me?

    Lastly this is a wonderfully written blog and one that I keep coming back to regularly. I have learnt a lot from it and am still learning from it. I want to express my gratitude towards you. Kudos!

    Delightfully yours,


  19. S October 7, 2021 / 2:34 am

    Namaste Respected Madam,

    If you are born in a particular religion I’m assuming there is some karma attached to that culture/deities. What happens when people start resonating with a different culture/deity? I’m not talking about forced conversions – I mean people just feel attached and feel the innate pull to another culture different than their birth one and start doing pujas, chanting and worship etc. Where can we see this from a birth chart? If you are following something foreign although willingly, is Rahu related on top of it being a 9th house matter?

    Thank you for everything!

      Hi there
      Sanatan dharma is not a religion.

      People who do not follow dharma have damaged rahu jupiter 9th house/lord sagittarius sign etc. Trigger would b the dasha/transit.
      And 12th house is the attraction to foreign cultures.

    Namaste Mam,

    I wish to perform the Navavarna Mantra jaap for 9 lakh times as per your instructions in the Navavarna Mantra blog post. May I begin on the coming Friday (tomorrow)? I feel I have the pronunciation correct. Will I be guided by the divine in case I’m doing something incorrectly, unknowingly?

    Thank you!

    Hi. I am Tula Lagna and going through Mangal mahadasha. My Mangal is in 12th house. I was advised to recite Mangal beej mantra.

    However somebody told me that since Mangal is Markesh.. better to avoid making it more powerful. So I should stop chanting Mangal beej mantra.

    I am confused. Pls share your views.

      Hi there
      U decide fr yrself or get a second opinion.
      I wrote about the concept of markesh in a post, read it if u want.
      He is the 2nd 7th lord so is responsible fr so many other things than just deciding time of physical exit.
      Frm my point of view he is auspicious.

    Hello Madam,

    some people say that first antardasha period of a mahadasha period will not be good even if it is natural benefic.for example venus antardasha in venus mahadasha.

    Please give your valuable opinion regarding this.

      Hi there
      if the planet is a auspicious one for your chart then it will be a very good time.
      but if he is a malefic for your chart, then yes, double his energy will make you cry bitter tears

        For me the the first Antardasha period of the Mahadasha of my 6th house planet -who is a functional malefic for me – began beautifully. But by the time it was ending, it was very, very painful. By grace of Parabrahma, I overcame that trauma, but at time I went thru a very difficult time for several months.


  24. Jinesh k October 7, 2021 / 6:07 pm

    OK.That seems to be the most sensible answer for this question.Thank You Very Much.

    Dear madam,

    Wishing you and your loved ones an auspicious Navratri and shubha Pujas. I wanted to mention that there are so many aspects to consider as you have mentioned, but for me a few of your earlier posts and just 2 comments you had made about my natal chart placements have been enough to get me through some very tough times in the last few months…. and help me make some tough decisions. Thank you so much for everything. I hope you have a wonderful celebration in this festival time 🙂

    You’ve given a very nice example of aspects. I’d a question for a while – suppose moon is afflicted with Nodes or Saturn and suppose the native suffers from anxiety disorder or some complicated mental health issue will mars’s aspect on moon help strengthen moon or rather make it more terrified; like you mentioned “threaten violence” (from someone who is well read says it aggravates problems) – i’m assuming when mars is a yogkarak or benefic it would help it’s friend moon come out of anxiety or any emotional trouble posed by strengthening.

      Hi there
      Wrote on natures of planets.

      If yogkarak saturn or mars affect the moon or the cancer sign they will have their kroor effect on the moon/ mind but in the long term it will prove to b auspicious.
      Just coz they r yogkarak doesn’t mean tht they go saumya. But yes they will give shubh results eventually
