Pushkar Navamsha in the D-9 chart

The navamsha chart is essential for gaining an in-depth view of the personality. If you have the correct birth time then you should analyse the following 3 types of charts, this is the basic minimum.

1.  The basic birth chart (D-1) – Manifested reality, the actual stuff which is happening/ will happen.

2. The birth Moon chart – this is easy to draw. You take the basic birth chart and re-orient it so that the house the Moon is in becomes the 1st house. e.g. If your rising sign is Taurus and birth Moon placed in 3rd house, Cancer sign, your birth Moon chart will start with Cancer as the first house. This is used to predict the emotional impact of life-events on your mind.

3. The D-9 Navamsha chart – the sum potential of your life. The things which remain behind the scene but are extremely vital.

Now the Navamsha chart is created by dividing the zodiac into 108 parts. Or simply, each sign of 30° is divided into into 9 equal parts of 3° 20″ size, thus it they are called nav-amsha, ‘9th part’. (the reason is a bit philosophical and includes the framework of the Nakshatra system). These parts are called ‘navamsha’. Each of these parts are assigned to the 12 zodiac signs in sequence. e.g. first part to Aries, the second part to Taurus and onwards till the 108th part belongs to Pisces.Pushkar Navamsha in the D-9 chartPushakar navamsha is a special navamsha /9th part. Pushkar means ‘to nourish’. Essentially a part of the zodiac where, if there are planets placed, they get more power. If you have your Vedic software with you, check if you have any planets or the exact ascendent degree, placed in these Pushakar zones. There are 24 such Pushkar navamsha zones.

The location of the Pushkar Navamsha are as follows,

If you observe the third column, the Pushkar navamshas shift to the most sensitive and benign signs in the zodiac.

e.g. If you have Jupiter placed in Aries at 22° 30″ it will be in the Pushkar navamsha and in the D-9 will shift to Libra sign. This Jupiter will give very good results because of this.

The * in the table above, represent the Pushkar navamsha which are also Vargottam, i.e. the planet will occupy the same sign in the D-1 and the D-9, which will make it doubly powerful for giving his results. e.g. if you have Mars in 14° 30″ Taurus in your D-1 he will be placed in Taurus in D-9, which makes him both Pushkar and Vargottam, doubly auspicious.

Now to use your Pushkar navamsha in predictions,

First generally analyse what this planet is capable of giving you? How powerful is he? Which sign and house does he occupy in the D-1? The signs that he owns, where are they placed in your D-1 chart? Which aspects of your life does he control? Is he exalted, debilitated, retrograde, combust or aspected by malefics/ benefics etc? e.g if he is in a Dushamsthan he will be an agent of disease, death and loss. And if he is placed in the 11th house, he will give gains and expand your material and spiritual profits. But the influence of the Pushkar navamsha is this, it will promote the auspicious results and reduce the intensity of the inauspicious effects of this planet

Continuing our example, whatever results e.g. Jupiter is capable of giving you, in your chart, they will be amplified. The potential of the D-9 is 100% converted to the active D-1 in this case. Jupiter is very comfortable, the inner potential and the outer manifested are complimentary. Your personality can focus and clearly act out whatever this Jupiter directs. Jupiter is benevolent, expansive and philosophical, you will be these things inside and out! Everyone is different on the inside (D-9) as compared to the outside (D-1). But Pushkar planets are the same, inside and out, you will no deep mental/emotional discomfort as you act under their influence. Especially in your actions with your ‘significant-others’, spouse, business partners, partners in profession, parents, children etc. A Pushkar planet affects you and your connected partner in the same way, so your inner expectations are always satisfied in the outer life.

Jupiter’s results in transit will also be modified. First calculate what results are possible by combining the effects of the birth Jupiter and the transit Jupiter together. Pushkar is ‘auspicious amplification’. In the transits of Jupiter, you can calculate the exact period when he will cross this same Pushkar navamsha again. This will occur for 1-2 months during your Jupiter return, at 12yrs, 24yrs, 36yrs etc multiples of 12yrs of life. This 1-2 month window will be poised to give you exceptionally beneficial results if you use it well.

Transits of other planets over this birth Jupiter in Pushkar Navamsha will also give auspicious results. This Jupiter will modify the effects of malefic planets in transit over him. e.g Saturn transiting over Aries in our example will give generally more favourable results and the inauspicious effects are modified by the presence of Pushkar Jupiter in Aries.

Then this will also help during the transits of the rulers of the Vimshottari Mahadasha and Antardasha. Transits of other planets over this birth Pushkar Jupiter during their Vimshottari dasha periods will give favourable results. (Vedic astrology is about patterns within patterns.) e.g if you are going through Mercury Mahadasha and within it Rahu antardasha, whenever Mercury or Rahu transits over Aries with the Pushkar Jupiter, their effects will be more auspicious.

The Vimshottari periods of Jupiter himself will be very powerful. The main Jupiter Mahadasha and also the Jupiter sub-periods in other planets Mahadashas. Your ’significant others’, especially the spouse, will also feel similar effects in this period.

Any special combinations, like house exchange, raj yoga etc formed with such a Pushkar Jupiter will be auspicious and give favourable results.

If the ascendant degree itself falls within a Pushkar navamsha, e.g. You are born at 17° 40″ Libra rising, your chart will be pulled up one level, life will be auspicious overall.

More planets placed in Pushkar navamshas, more powerful this chart will be. If you examine charts of highly successful people you will find 2 or more planets in Pushkar navamsha. Pushkar Navamsha in the D-9 chartThere is a further Pushkar bhaga within the Pushkar navamsha, an exact single degree in the zodiac where the residing planet gains exceptionally high energy. This is for academic interest as you will need the exact time of birth for calculating this degree precisely. These are as follows,

  • Exact 21st degree of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
  • Exact 14th degree of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
  • Exact 24th degree of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
  • Exact 7th degree of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

There are two other ways you can use Pushkar navamsha.

  1. These degree zones are auspicious and favourable so are used in finding out good times to do things, i.e. in calculating a Muhurt. e.g if you buy a car at the time when a Pushkar navamsha is rising in the east, it will be auspicious.
  2. These are also used in Prashna method where the client asks one single important question. e.g. If the planet defining the question in the chart is falling in a Pushkar zone, the answer of the question will be favourable.

This is a rather technical post today but useful. It is something which you can easily check from your software. If you have a planet in such a Pushkar navamsha, it will give very noticeable effects and auspicious results.

 

Pushkar Navamsha in the D-9 chart(There is little information on Pushkar navamsha, a bit in Jataka Parijat, but you can refer to Shri C.S. Patel’s book, ‘Navamsha and Nadi Astrology’. This post is from the books and also from my personal experience. I know a chart with 3 pushkar navansha, 1 pushkar bhaga and 3 vargottam placements, where despite the D1 being a bit problematic, the D-9 is strong enough to grant very good results)

Timing death for close relations,

Sometimes you will get clients whose parents or near relations are seriously ill and they do not have the correct birth time available. So of course you will use the prashana kundali to analyse the health and recovery of the client’s relative. But sometimes it can be serious and you may see no chance of recovery. Predicting death in clear words is never advisable unless you are very sure, as it can break down the will power of the family/patient. Or later there might be doubts in your own mind if you did the correct thing by telling them what you saw.

Here is a simple way to recheck your grim predictions. So you do not have the birth details of the patient, and the prashana kundali indicates death. But you have the exact birth time of the patient’s son/daughter/brother/spouse. Look up this relative’s chart and find out which Mahadasha/ Antardasha and current transits are on for this relative.

The rulers of the 2nd and 7th houses counted from the ascendant are called the natural marak /death-inflicting planets and determine the timing of physical death of the body. If we count this second and seventh houses from other houses, then their owners can be used to indicate timing of death of the close relations signified by these houses.deathFirst using the Vimshottari system,

Spouse – Period of the ruler of the 1st house can cause death of the spouse. The 1st house is located seventh from the 7th house which represents the spouse. Also the period of the ruler of the 8th house of the native’s chart. (8th is second from 7th)

Mother– Period of the ruler of the 5th house can indicate the death of the mother. The 5th house is counted second from the 4th house. Also the period of the ruler of the 10th house (10th house is counted seventh from the 4th house).

Father – Period of the ruler of the 4th house can cause death of the person’s father. It is seventh counted from the 10th house. The 10th is the house of the father. Also the period of the ruler of the 11th house can be used for timing death of the biological father. (Some consider the 9th house to be the house of the father, but I have found that the 9th is more apt for father-figures, teachers, Guru/second-father/spiritual-father, ancestors, patrons etc. The biological father is better seen from the 10th house).

Siblings – Period of the ruler of the 4th house can cause death of the siblings, cousins, brothers. The 4th house is the second counted from the 3rd house. And the period of the ruler of the 9th house (counted seventh from the 3rd house).

Children – Unfortunately this also happens sometimes, parents have to go through the pain of seeing a child leave the body. In this case birth time would be available so you can check for longevity from the child’s chart itself. But as a secondary confirmation, you will find that in the parent’s charts, the 6th and 11th house lords periods/sub-periods can indicate the death of a child.

Now from the transits,

Check out the transits of the biggest separative graha, Ketu and the agent of constriction Saturn. e.g. Last year, Ketu was in Capricorn, counted fourth from Libra. I observed 3 clients with Libra ascendants bidding farewell to their mothers in this period of 1.5yrs. So check if you have Saturn or Ketu transiting houses which indicate close relations as per your birth chart, e.g. 1st house = self, 3rd = siblings, 4th = mother, 5th = children, 7th = wife/husband, 10th = father. Then check the chart of that person for longevity, if he has neared his/her allotted life-span, then death of the body might occur. If not then this combination will give temporary separation, e.g. living away for studies or work etc.

While analysing, look for patterns which repeat, one single combinations does not make a reading. There will be at least 2-3 combinations which will confirm the reading.
