Speedy and Correct Chart Analysis
DAC (Dashaa Arambha Chakra), as mentioned in Dashaaphala-adhyaaya of BPHS, requires millisecond-accuracy for making Vimshottaris of divisionals, which is extremely difficult and cannot be used in day to day jobs. The practical method of natal astrology most reliable and time saving is presented here, based mainly on BPHS.
Take three charts at first : (1) D1 (SSS bhaavachalita), (2) relevant divisional (eg, D10 for achievements or career, D24 for Vidyaa, and (3) VPC (Varsha Pravesha Chakra, and if time permits then MPC or Maasa Pravesha Chakra too).
Then, find out the five Vimshottari planets of D1 and relevant divisional. Thereafter, compare the main strengths of Vimshottari planets of D1 and relevant divisional. Main strength is given at right hand side of each enlarged chart in Kundalee software, indicating main strengths in numbers : 9 = exalted, 8 = in moolatrikona, 7 = svagrihi, 6 = in fast friend's sign, 5 = mitra-grihi, 4 = samagrihi, 3 = shatrugrihi, 2 = atishatrugrihi, 1 = neecha. Neecha (debilitated) planet sometimes gives good and strong results because it gets controlled easily by strong relatives due to its weakness. A neecha planet can neutralize one exalted planet, but if such strong planets are more than one, then the neecha planet will not be able to neutralise all of them and will give very good and benefic results if the strong relatives are benefic. While comparing main strengths, use Shadbala ONLY when the main strenght of two competing planets are same, because main strength is scaled on a logarithmic scale of base two (cf BPHS, which uses log-base two, although Europeans falsely claim that logarithmic scale was invented by Napier in modern era), while Shadbala has a maximum scale of approximately double. In other words, main strength doubles in each consequetive stage, eg a planet in Fast Friendly sign is twice stronger than a planet in friendly sign, and an exalted planet is roughly 30 times stronger than an atishatrugrihi planet (cf. page Ishta-kashta-vivechana chapter in BPHS, verses 7-9). When D1 is to be compared with VPC or MPC, use Min Strength only, and if two planets have same Main Strength then use Shadbala. But when D1 current Vimshottari planet's strength is to be compared with the Vimshottari planet of the required divisional, then multiply Main Strength with Vimshopaka Strength of the divisional to get final strength. D1, D9 and D60 have high Vimshopaka strengths. D60 is not to be used if birth time is not tested to be accurate with reference to at least five or ten significant events. Due to high Vimshopaka of D1, divisional charts should NOT be used unless their current Vimshottari planets have very high strengths with respect to the current Vimshottari planets of D1. In the absence of DAC, the best tool is SC (Sudarchana Chakra). If Sun or Moon is in lagna, then only Lagna Chakra should be used, otherwise Surya KUndali and Chandra Kundali should also be analyzed and results should be added. For instance, add up the house lordships of a particlular planet in all three charts of SC to find out the domains of that planet and its functional beneficence or maleficence. Try to avoid other dashaas unless you are confident in handling them. This shortcut will help in correct analysis of over 90% cases. Use relations, aspects and friendships always.
The rules of Natal Astrology are difficult to learn because of the complexity of this branch of Predictive Astrology. It is because Natal Astrology has many problems which few astrologers can resolve :
- Dozens of dashaa systems pose a problem of selection of correct dasha system for a particular field ;
- DAC (dashaa aarambha chakra or dashaa onset chart) requires birthtime accuracy in milliseconds which was easy in bygone days due to garbhaadhaana samskaara chart and sootikaa griha details which no one preserves now ; dashaa-phala should be made through DAC and not through birthchart according to BPHS (Brihat Parashara Hora Shaastra) ;
- Role of various tools like kaarakaamsha, ashtakavarga, varshaphala, etc which modify the results of birthchart.
Therefore, Medini Jyotisha is the easiest approach to learn the fundamentals of Predictive Astrology , and once these fundamentals are learnt, they can be applied to Natal Astrology so that the aforementioned difficult fields of Natal Astrology can be dealt with greater confidence and reliability. Medini Jyotisha does not need dashaas, DAC, ashtakavarga, kaarakaamsha, etc, and is therefore far simpler than Natal Astrology. But Medini Jyotisha requires casting horoscope on map, and some easy rules for interpreting those charts on map which is out of use now. Influenced by Western Astrology, many Indian astrologers are also now making national chart of India from New Delhi and argue that India did not exist before 1947 as a nation. This political definition of India is correct but it is a definition of the political STATE of India, not of the Indian NATION which is essentially a cultural entity and not a political entity.
Those who want to solve these issues through mere discussions should not read my articles. Jyotisha is a practical science, and proof of the pudding lies in tasting it.
Now, I find there are some astrologers and learners online who are really interested in testing the ancient techniques of Medini Jyotisha. That is why I have decided to put online the forthcoming series of articles illustrating the technique of chart interpretation which will help in Natal Astrology (Jaatak) too. For such persons, from Version 6.8.9 onwards 97 years international rainfall data and 135 years Indian rainfall data arranged in Financial Year beginning from Apr-1 has been integrated into Kundalee Software so that the users of Kundalee could see the rainfall data on World's and India's maps together with astrological chart, so that comparison of rainfall data with astrological chart could be feasible. Drik (physical astronomy) mode will soon be activated in Kundalee, which will help the users of Drik to make comparative study of Drik versus SSS (Shri Surya Siddhaanta) with reference to the actual rainfall data.
I requested all internet astrologers since Dec 2008 when I joined internet astrological forums to test Drik vs SSS issue through comparative study, but no one was interested, hence I lost interest in adding these features into Kundalee Software. Now, I find there are some unbiased and sincere persons, and that is why these new features have been added to Kundalee Software, and that is why this new series of illustrative articles is being started.
Secrets of Chart Analysis : World Rains Data Analysis of 1956-7
1956 was the year of highest rainfall in India's entire recorded history, with total annual rainfall beginning from Apr 1, 1956 being +25% above average. Let us start with analyzing the World Rainfall Data and World Astrological Chart to understand how the rules of Phalita Jyotisha work. The following webpage illustrates it :
