1. Introduction

Even though all parts or organs of the body are important, the heart is the most
important of all as it holds the life of a person. If the heart stops beating (stops the
pumping of the blood), the person is considered as dead. The horoscope which consists of
twelve Rasis, nine Planets and Twenty Seven Nakshatras is like a heart and the most
important part which holds the life of the horoscope is called as Lagna.

When a child is born, what is its life term? Astrology explains the Characteristics
of a person. The mode of dressing, the gait, the manner, external appearance followed by
his kith and kin, wife, children, family position, friends, health, education, profession,
marriage, wealth, finance, independence and so on and so forth are all clearly seen
through the horoscope. But to deduce and arrive at the above information, Lagna is the
foundation or the principal root.

1.1. Horoscope

For us on earth, we consider that Sun is going round in the sky. This imaginary
path of the Sun is called as ecliptic. The explanation as given in Wikipedia is worth
reading at this juncture:

The ecliptic is the apparent path of the Sun on the celestial sphere as seen from the Earths center
and also the plane of this path, which is essentially coplanar with the orbit of the Earth around the
Sun.

For about 9 degrees on either side of this ecliptic, a circular region is created and
this is called as Rasi Mandal or zodiac. For all practical purposes the zodiac is
considered to be a circle of 360 degrees. This 18 degree zodiac on either side of the ecliptic
holds within itself all the 9 planets and the 27 nakshatras.

The planets are not stationery but are constantly moving within this zodiac. Each
planet has its own speed of movement. When a child is born, the position of planets in
the zodiac is captured and that is called as a horoscope. This horoscope is called as Rasi
Chart.

1.2. Rasi
The movement of Sun around the earth is an apparent one as stated earlier. Earth
rotates around its own axis. It rotates towards the east. Based on this rotation of the earth
12

and as seen from a particular place on the earth, the position of planets in the zodiac is
determined and this becomes the basis for constructing a horoscope. The earths rotation
is opposite to that of the zodiac. The earth rotates once in every twenty four hours.

Since the zodiac is considered as a circle, there is neither beginning nor an end to
this. Hence our ancestors have considered the zero degree of the nakshatra Aswini as the
starting point of the zodiac. And this circle of 360 degree was divided into 12 parts with
each part having 30 degrees and is termed as Rasi. These 12 Rasis have been named as
below: (Only English names have been given for a better understanding)
1. Aries; 2.Taurus; 3. Gemini; 4. Cancer; 5. Leo; 6. Virgo; 7. Libra; 8. Scorpio; 9.
Sagittarius; 10. Capricorn; 11. Aquarius; 12. Pisces.
These Rasis begin in zero degree of Nakshatra Aswini and end in 30 degree of Revathi.

1.3. Lagna

As the rotation of the earth is anti-clockwise with respect to the zodiac, it crosses
all the 12 Rasis in a day. When a child is born at a particular time in a particular place that
Rasi which rises in the east at that point and place is called as the rising Rasi which is
otherwise termed as Lagna. This is also known as Janma Lagna. The exact longitude of
rising of that Rasi is called as the Lagna point. This is arrived at by taking into
consideration the longitude of the Sun at the time of birth. This Lagna is the important
Life force of the person like that of a heart to him. Based on this Lagna only, the
ownership of the Bhavas, Planets are determined.

If this Lagna is not calculated correctly, position of planets, its ownership as well as
its powers will change and hence the results will also vary. Hence the Lagna must be
worked out with utmost correctness.

1.4. Bhavas
Wherever Lagna is placed that is called as the First Bhava. The remaining 11 Rasis are
termed as- 2 - Dhana Bhava (wealth); 3 Bhratru Bhava (Co-borns); 4 Mathru Bhava
(Mother); 5 Pithru Bhava (Children); 6 Sathru Bhava (Enemies); 7 Kalathra Bhava
(Spouse); 8 Ayul Bhava (Longevity); 9 Pithru Bhava (Father);10 Karma Bhava
(Profession); 11 Labha Bhava (Gains) and 12. Moksha Bhava (Emancipation).

So based on Lagna the other Bhavas are determined as above.
1. Each planet has its own Karakatwa (Significance).
2. Each Bhava also has its own Karakatwa (Significance).
13

A planet gives its results based on its own significance coupled with the significance of
the ownership of the Bhava it gets (based on Lagna position).

bhava as well as its own significations produces the results based on its placement in the
horoscope.

With this introduction let us proceed to analyse all the 12 Lagnas.












22



2.1. General Points:

Out of the 12 Rasis the first Rasi is Aries. The 12 Rasis are considered as the limbs
of Kalapurusha. Aries is considered as the Head of the Kalapurusha. For an individual the
Lagna will denote the head.

Aries is a moveable, Odd and odd-footed (vishamapada or ojapada) Rasi. Its
symbol is a Ram or sheep. It is a male Rasi and is considered as malefic or cruel. It has a
bilious (Pitta) temperament. It is blood-red in complexion, strong during night, related to
Kings, rises with its back (Prishtodaya) and its ruler is Mars. It has a prominent (big)
physique, indicates courage, wanders in hills, a quadruped sign, resides in the east,
predominates in Rajo guna and it is fiery in nature. Aries belongs to Kshatriya Varna.
The Nakshatras included in this Rasi are Aswini, Bharani and 1
st
Pada of Krittika. This is
also the Moolatrikona house of Mars and extends up to 12 degrees. The remaining 18
degrees is considered as its own house. Aries is indicative of precious stones, forests and
minerals.

In this Rasi
Jupiter and Rahu are friends, Ketu is enemy, Moon, Venus and Mercury are equal, Sun
gets exalted and Saturn gets debilitated. Suns deep exaltation point is 10 degrees and
Saturns deep debilitation point is 20 degrees.

2.2. General results:

Native born with this Lagna have lean body, long neck. Their nose will be
prominent and they will possess beauty. They will have a majestic appearance.
Courageous, intelligent, cleverness, humbleness, eloquences, capability of argument, dear
to the general public, stubbornness, interested in Shastras, hot-tempered, will have a
helping tendency sacrificing his own benefits, capable of taking any responsible work and
finishing it are some of the qualities of persons born under this Lagna. But he often gets
excited.

23

He has a vast general knowledge. He will be following his own intentions and
thoughts. He will engage in activities which will not harm his status and dignity. Even
though he appears to be stupid person, he is capable of keenly watching what is going on
around him. His walk will be erect; his eyesight will be tender but will have keenness.
Long neck, long nose, beautiful lined teeth, bushy eyebrows, sliding shoulder, long hands,
prominent long ears, thick curling hair are the appearance of Aries Lagna people.

2.3. Results of Nakshatra:

Those who are born in Aswini Nakshatra are capable of finishing the taken work
without any shortcomings, a liberal donor, a valiant person, will not tell a lie, interested
in ornaments, famous but will get angry even for small things.

Persons born under Bharani Nakshatra are dear to their parents, intelligent,
famous, clever, and eloquent and will have less sleeping comforts.

Persons born under the first pada of Krittika will be following the assigned
customs, a highly learned and eminent person, a nobleman, a veteran warrior or hero,
wise person but will be prone to diseases.

These are the opinion of the author of Jataka Alankaram and they are only general
results.

2.4. Results of planetary ownerships:

2.4.1 Mars:

Mars is also owner of the 8
th
house besides being the Lagna Lord. As per the rule
If the Lagna Lord also becomes lord of the 8
th
house he becomes full benefic, Mars is a
fully benefic planet for Aries Lagna. If the army Chief Mars is placed in Lagna in his
own house or in the exaltation position in the 10
th
(in Capricorn), the native will have a
perennial blessings of Goddess Lakshmi. Education will be in the fields of engineering,
Science or Law. Profession may also be in the same line. Courage, very active, engaging
in anything with seriousness, always suppressing others with authority, luck in all
matters are all the results that Mars will produce. If Mars is placed in the 8
th
house, long
life, foreign journey, research activities will b the results. If Mars is placed in the 1
st
, 2
nd
,
5
th
, 6
th
, 10
th
or 11
th
houses, that will yield good results for Aries Lagna people. Mars should
be in strength. If Mars is weak, longevity will be curtailed. In addition there is a
24

possibility of getting affected by diseases like hernia, hydrocele, piles, Phlegm which will
yield bad results. Mars gets debilitated in the 4
th
house in Cancer and If Jupiter joins as
he is exalted there Mars gets Neecha Bhanga.

2.4.2. Venus:

Venus gets the lordship of the 2
nd
and 7
th
house for Aries Lagna. Aries being a
movable sign, both the places are maraka places and hence Venus becomes a worst
malefic. Further ownership of the 7
th
house being a Kendra, Kendradhipatya Dosha also
is applicable. But both the houses are important houses. 2
nd
house indicates family,
finance, education, speech and eloquence thereof, right eye, food, status. 7
th
house
indicates spouse, vigour, business, partners. Hence these should get strengthened. As the
saying goes If a bad fellow gets spoiled he will produce Rajayoga, if Venus is placed in
the bad houses like the 6
th
, 8
th
or the 12
th
, he will do good. If he is placed in the 2
nd
house
then also he will give benefic results. If he is in the 2
nd
house with Mars and Jupiter, in
the 4
th
house with Moon, in the 9
th
house with Jupiter or Mars, with Sun in Lagna, with
Sun and Mercury in the 11
th
house will give good results. If he is placed in the 12
th
house
of exaltation, that will produce good Yoga results. Venus should not be placed in any
Kendra.

The spouse of Aries Lagna native will be higher in all aspects of life or at least
equal. Fortune is expected through spouse.

2.4.3. Mercury:

Mercury owns the two bad houses the 3
rd
and the 6
th
house and as such becomes a full
malefic. For Mars, Mercury is an enemy, though Mercury treats Mars as equal. The third
house indicates acting on own, courage, capability of writing, air travel, security,
information and broadcasting. It also indicates profession in these lines. Hence If
Mercury is with strength, the financial position will improve. The higher he is spoilt, the
better will be the economy of the native. But at the same time the results of the third
house will get spoiled. It is better if Mercury is placed in the 1
st
, 3
rd
, 5
th
, 9
th
or 10
th
houses.
It is not that much good if he is placed in the 11
th
house. Being lord of the 6
th
house, if he
is placed in the 2
nd
house, the native may be a teacher or a professor.

2.4.4. Moon:

25

Mother, house, vehicle, comforts, skill, milk, cow, relations are the indications of the 4
th

house lord Moon and he becomes the Matru Karaka. Being a karaka for mind and also
because of the friendship the Lagna lord holds with Moon, he becomes karaka for
excitedness. Moon is considered as the queen of planets. Even if he is placed in his own
4
th
house, Karka Masthi Bhaveshu dosha will not be applicable and the effects on
account of this will be only less. Good education, Government job, Ship engineer, fitness,
chemistry, research will be the line of profession if he is placed in the 10
th
house. Moon
should not be placed in the hidden houses of 6
th
, 8
th
or 12
th
. He should also not be placed
in the enemy house and should not be in debilitation. (Scorpio which is the 8
th
house for
Aries Lagna is the house of debilitation of Moon. There are no enemies to Moon which
should also be borne in mind.) If Moon is placed in 1
st
, 2
nd
, 4
th
, 5
th
, 9
th
or 10
th
is good.

2.4.5. Sun:

The 5
th
house is an important house and is indicative of Purva Punya, learning,
conception, discourse of the learned, attainment of Mantra powers and Excellency of
knowledge. Sun, who is considered as the King of the Planets and also a friend of Lagna
Lord holds the ownership of the most important house. Benefits through Government or
Officers, success in examinations pertaining to the department where one is employed
and securing a higher post are some of the benefits of the 5
th
lord. He is a complete Yoga
karaka planet. If he conjoins Jupiter or Moon it will be a Rajayoga. If he is exalted in
Lagna, the native may become a Judge or a high Government official. If he is placed in
the 9
th
house, there will be fame amongst the kinsmen, writing famous books,
Government job are all possible. Children will have good education and status and will
shine well. If this 5
th
lord is in the 10
th
house, then also the above stated results will
materialize. If he is placed in the 4
th
house, happiness of mother, benevolence of Goddess
Lakshmi, fame, authoritative post and procreation of children will be some of the benefic
results that will come. Generally, being the 5
th
lord, if he is placed in the 1
st
, 4
th
, 7
th
or 10
th

house it is good. Places other than the 6
th
, 8
th
or the 12
th
and the houses which are inimical
to him as also its debilitation house (Libra) are all good.

2.4.6. Jupiter:


Jupiter owns the 9
th
and 12
th
house is a friend of the Lahna Lord, Mars. 9
th
is a
strongest trikona and hence the blemish on account of the 12
th
lordship gets minimized
and makes Jupiter a full Rajayoga planet. 9
th
house indicates father, happiness on account
of father, devotion, Dharma, doing virtuous or religious deeds, wealth. As these are good
26

results the 9
th
lord should be strong in the horoscope. If so, fame, position, income,
education, house, vehicle and such other good things will be coming in the life of the
native and on account of which superior things in life as well as status will be bestowed.
12
th
house is the house of emancipation or Moksha. Additionally bed comforts, job in a
foreign country and loss are denoted by it. Since the 9
th
house is the Moolatrikona of
Jupiter, the results of the 9
th
house will dominate and Jupiter will behave like a Karpaga
tree. 9It is a miraculous tree in the world of Indra yielding whatever desired). If Jupiter
is placed in the 1
st
, 4
th
, 5
th
, 7
th
, 9
th
or 10
th
houses good results will be forthcoming. If he is
placed in the 6
th
house his aspect will be on the 10
th
house of livelihood, if placed in the 8
th

house, the aspect will be on the 2
nd
house of wealth and the 4
th
house of comforts and if
placed in the 12
th
house his aspect will be on the 4
th
house of comforts and the 8
th
house of
longevity and hence all these aspected houses will be flourishing. If he is in the 10
th
house,
he is capable of inflicting death also.

2.4.7. Saturn

Saturn becomes the lord of 10
th
and 11
th
houses. 10
th
house is the house of profession or
business, authoritative position, true wisdom, worship, devotion to God, greatness or
honour, to wash the sins of the father. 11
th
house indicates elder siblings, gains, clothing,
collection of ornaments, knowledge, servants, younger wife (2
nd
wife). Being the Kendra
lord of the 10
th
house and the lord of the 11
th
badhakasthana Saturn becomes malefic. (For
movable Lagna 11
th
house is the Badhakasthana). Because of this blemish only the health
will get affected but the gains will not be disturbed is the thinking of some elders. If the
lord of the Badhakasthana is placed in a trikona, the Dosha gets nullified and he becomes
a benefic is the ruling given by Pulippani Sithar. This is applicable to all Lagnas. Hence
Saturn must be placed either in the 5
th
house or in the 9
th
house and if so the results of the
Badhaka lord will not happen. The profession or business will be based on his Karkatwa.
Since it is a sign of a labor or an industrious person, many times, the profession will be
such as getting a monthly salary. Business may be dealing in items like - Iron, fertilizer,
sugar-cane, grains, oil, root vegetables, old iron parts, and spare parts of machines.
Engineering education connected Vehicle, airplane, ship is also possible. May indulge in
politics also. In case Saturn is associated or conjunct with Sun and Rahu and with the 2
nd

house or lord of the 2
nd
house, the field of education may be medicine. Saturn is called as
the King Maker. If he is placed in the 10
th
or the 11
th
house with benefic strength, even a
person placed in rubbish will be lifted up and placed on the top of a tower. That is to say
even if born in a poor family he will attain the greatest heights in life. But he is also
capable of plunging the native into an abyss suddenly. The 10
th
house of Capricorn and
27

the 10
th
house from the Moon as well as the Navamsa Lord of Saturn will determine the
natives profession or business.

2.5. Other treatises on Aries Lagna:

It is worth remembering some findings in various other treatises which talk about Aries
Lagna.

2.5.1 Chandra Kaviyam ( A Tamil treatise):

According to Chandra Kavyam, even though Jupiter and Venus are malefics but will not
inflict death. Saturn and Mercury are capable of inflicting death. Out of these who will
be the maraka will have to be analysed and stated. The relevant Tamil verses are
produced here:




. (48)



.

2.5.2. Jataka Chandrika:




Meaning: A person born in Aries Lagna has Saturn, Mercury and Venus ill disposed
towards him. Jupiter and Sun are auspicious. The simple combination of Jupiter and
Saturn produces no beneficial results.

28




Meaning: But on the other hand Jupiter when combined with Saturn, not only does not
give good but will actively produce evil. Venus does not himself kill the native although
he possesses death-inflicting powers.

Jataka Chandrika goes on to add that evil planets like Saturn etc. will kill the native. He
takes Saturn first and then Mercury and occasionally includes Moon. Mercury is bad as
he owns the 3
rd
and the 6
th
and Moon because of the Kendradhipatya Dosha become bad.
Moon if he is full, he will be classified as good and his owning one of the quadrants
(Kendra) is bad and he may, by evil combinations, produce death. But if he is weak, then
his owning the quadrant is auspicious and he will do good.

2.5.3. Pulippani Jothidam:

Saturn will give lot of malefic results. If he gives home, money and land, he will cut
short longevity. On the contrary if he occupies trikonas, the native will live long with
money. On no account Saturn should occupy a Kendra.

2.6. Benefic-Malefic Explanations:

Benefics: Sun, Mars, Jupiter
Yogakarakas: Sun, Moon, Jupiter (Half benefic), Saturn (Half benefic)
Malefics: Mercury, Venus, Saturn (Half malefic)
Marakas: Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter

Lagna natives, the houses related to marriage are the 2
nd
, 7
th
, 8
th
and 12
th
. Related to
marriage, the above houses indicate the family, Spouse, Mangalya (a marriage badge),
bed pleasures respectively. Lords of these houses or the planets placed in these houses are
also capable of bringing marriage in their dasa-antardasa. Experience shows that when a

Sun Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus
Moon Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn
Rahu Jupiter, Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars
Jupiter Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars
Saturn Jupiter, Venus, Moon
Venus Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn

In the above periods beneficial and good results are likely. It will be an auspicious time to
start any new venture. If all the above planets are conjoined with benefics or placed in
benefic places or during transit occupies benefic places, it is good.

2.8. Maraka planets:

Venus, Mercury and Saturn are the maraka planets. Possible combinations are given
below:

1. Venus being the lord of 2
nd
and 7
th
becomes a maraka. But as per the general rule, if
a planet is lord of two maraka houses, it will not inflict death. Hence Venus will
not be a maraka. This fact is stated in Chandra Kaviyam, Thandavamalai and
Jataka Alankaram.

2. Mercury being lord of the 3
rd
and 6
th
, he becomes a strong maraka.

3. Saturn being lord of the badhakasthana (11
th
house), he may also be a maraka.

4. Since Jupiter owns the 12
th
house, if he is placed in the 10
th
house he will kill. If in
the 10
th
he is with Venus both husband and wife may die.

5. Since Mars owns the 8
th
house also, if he conjoins Venus, the native may die by
injury on the head.

6. If Mars joins Mercury, death may be due to diseases of the head.

7. Saturn, Mercury, Venus conjunction may bring about death in their dasas.
32


As a conclusion, we may say that Mercury or Saturn may be a maraka. But a decision is
to be taken based on the strength of these planets.

2.9. General maraka rules:

1. For movable Lagna lord of the 2
nd
and 7
th
are maraka. Lord of 3
rd
and 7
th
are the
marakas for Fixed Lagna natives. For Dual Lagna, the marakas are the lords of 7
th

and 11
th
houses.

2. Planet/s placed in the maraka places are stronger than the lords of the maraka
places in inflicting death.

3. Planets conjoined with lords of the maraka houses are stronger than the lords of
the maraka places in inflicting death.

4. Even if a benefic has conjoined a maraka lord, he may bring about death.

5. The 3
rd
and 8
th
houses are also the maraka houses. Hence lords of these places are
also capable of bringing the death. If they combine with other maraka lords, they
are empowered to become death inflicting planets.

6. The planet that has the least strength in the horoscope may also become a maraka.

7. If the Ayush karaka Saturn (Karaka for longevity) becomes a maraka lord or if he
conjoins or associates with another maraka planet, he will keep aside all the planets
and himself will inflict death.

These are all common to all Lagna.

3.4. Bhava Lords results

3.4.1 Venus

Venus is the Lagna lord and also owns the 6
th
house. The 6
th
house Libra is the
Moolatrikona place for Venus and is to be considered as a benefic. Some authorities think
that being a Lagna lord he will be a benefic. But in spite of his lordship over Lagna, he is
to be considered as a malefic only. If he is in strength, the results of the 6
th
house will
flourish but finance will get spoiled. It is better if he joins Moon or Sun or Mercury.
Normally during the dasa of Venus only mixed results are expected. It is better if he is
weak rather than gaining strength. Lower abdomen, hidden places will be affected by
Venus. Women may get trouble in the uterus.

3.4.2 Mercury

Mercury owns the 2
nd
and 5
th
house from Taurus Lagna. Since the 5
th
house is the
Moolatrikona sign of Mercury, he becomes a benefic. Be it mathematics or any other
field of education, the native will come out with flying colours. Will plan judiciously and
execute the things. Will become an author. If he joins Sun and be placed in the 2
nd
or 4
th

or 5
th
will get graduation degrees like B.Sc., B.Com, Engineering, Auditing. Children will
be with dignity and will attain great heights in their life. Is capable of speaking with
profound meanings and will attract others by his attractive words. Finance though not
will be plentiful but will not be wanting. They will get financial assistance to the
required level. The Purva Punya lord Mercury should not get afflicted. Generally the 1
st
,
2
nd
, 4
th
, 5
th
, 9
th
, 10
th
and 11
th
are the favourable places for mercury for this Lagna.

3.4.3. Moon

Owner of the Bhratru Bhava (House of siblings), the Moon even if he is exalted in
Taurus, becomes a malefic on account of the reason that the 3
rd
house is a maraka place
for fixed Lagna. Still since the 3
rd
house is an Upachaya house and the house indicating
37

courage, sibling etc. it is better if he is placed with strength. A strong Moon will give
good courage as well as siblings. Cancer (the 3
rd
house) being a female rasi and Moon also
being a female planet the natives sisters will be well disposed towards the natives of
Taurus Lagna. Good placement where Moon will do good are the 1
st
, 3
rd
, 4
th
, 5
th
, 10
th
and
11
th
.

3.4.4. Sun

A natural malefic on account of his ownership of the 4
th
Kendra becomes a benefic
for Taurus Lagna. If he is with strength, general family comforts, happiness, house,
vehicle etc are the expected results. If Sun is with strength and is placed in Taurus,
Gemini, Leo, Virgo or Aquarius, the native may get a superior house and vehicle.
Contrarily, if Sun gets afflicted fear in the mind, confusion disease, dissatisfaction with
the superiors are some of the bad results that may be experienced. When Sun is with
strength, the native will get the affection and love from mother and himself will also be
like that. Mother will be long lived.

The native of this Lagna will have basic education. If Sun is having strength,
graduation is assured. Whichever field they are working, they will work hard and will
try to get higher positions. They will have the necessary intelligence for the same. It will
be good if Sun is placed in the 1
st
, 3
rd
, 4
th
, 7
th
, 9
th
, 10
th
and 11
th
houses.

3.4.5. Mars

Mars owns the 7
th
house of spouse and the 12
th
house of loss. He is a friend of Lagna
lord Venus. Spouse will be either well educated or will be a wealthy person. Even if the
husband is of a lower status than her, she will adjust herself and will run the family
peacefully and harmoniously. But she will be subjected to angry and stupidity. If Mars is
afflicted married life will not be good. Quarrels and misunderstandings will be the results
often. Loss of money will always be there. There will be no peace in the family. If Mars
is in strength there will be increased business, advancement in industrial works, foreign
job are likely to materialize. The 12
th
lordship will not harm because of the reason that a
Kendra Lord if afflicted will yield only benefic results.

3.4.6. Jupiter
Jupiter owns the 8
th
and 11
th
houses. Even though the 8
th
house is a Moolatrikona
house, but it being a maraka house, Jupiter becomes a malefic. Jupiter being the karaka
for finance (Dhana karaka) and also owning the 11
th
house of gains, will promote the
38

finance of the native if placed in any of the houses 1
st
, 2
nd
, 3
rd
, 5
th
, 9
th
or the 11
th
. 8
th
house
is the labhasthana (House of gains) for the 10
th
house, if Jupiter is conjunct with 10
th
lord
or is associated with the 10
th
house, the native is likely to be the head of a department or
an organization. Will have long life. If placed in the 8
th
house which is the own house of
Jupiter, Sarala Yoga results. If he joins mercury or has Parivarthana (exchange) or have
mutual aspect it is a Dhana yoga. If Sun and the 9
th
lord are conjoined with Jupiter and is
placed in the 11
th
house there will be long life. Fortune will come only in the later part of
life, that is only after 40 years.

3.4.7. Saturn

Owner of 9
th
and 10
th
houses. When a planet gets the ownership of a Kendra and Trikona,
he becomes a strong Yogakaraka. But for Taurus Lagna Saturn is like that but this will
not hold good. Because the 9
th
house is the badhakasthana he also becomes a Badhaka
lord. If he is placed in the 10
th
it is good. 9
th
house placement is not good. If he is placed in
the 9
th
to the 9
th
house, i.e. in the 5
th
house, the Badhaka blemish will vanish and Saturn
will become a benefic. Saturn beneficially placed will give economic advancement, good
placement, attainment of higher posts, assistance of the Government or authorities,
betterment for father. Due to the ownership of the 9
th
as well as the 10
th
houses, there will
be benefits either way to father and self. If Saturn is exalted in the 6
th
house it is a
Rajayoga. If placed in the 4
th
house, 10
th
house matters will get strengthened. Whatever
has been stated for the karakatwa of Saturn in Aries Lagna will also hold good for this
Lagna. Generally, natives of Taurus are patient persons. Whichever field they are in, due
to their hard work, capability and indulgence, they will come up and will attain a higher
status and position. They will not be afraid to work harder and harder.

it is good.

4.4.3 Sun

Lord of 3
rd
house, Sun is a friend of Mercury. Since he gets the ownership of the 3
rd

house, the general opinion is that he is a malefic. Since 3
rd
house is an Upachaya place it
will be giving only growth. Younger sibling, courage, writing capacity, success or failure,
travel will all be denoted by the 3
rd
house and hence placement of Sun must be good and
he should be with strength. If it be so, there will be many younger siblings and there will
be good understanding with them. Ability to discussion will increase. If he is placed in
the 10
th
house it will give yoga. Finance will be better. Good placement for Sun are the 3
rd
,
4

, 5

, 6
th
, 9

, 10

or 11
th
.

4.4.4 Venus

Venus owns the 5
th
and the 12
th
houses. Being the lord of the 5
th
house of Purva
Punya, he becomes a benefic. If he is with strength, addition of children, dignity,
influence, fame, house, vehicle will the good results. If he is placed in the 5
th
or in the 5
th

to the 5
th
house i.e. the 9
th
house, in the 10
th
house in an exalted position or in the 11
th

house good results will follow. Since he is getting the ownership of the 12
th
house, at the
end of his dasa, he will take away whatever was given by him. That is to say everything
will be lost at the end of his dasa.

4.4.5. Mars

Mars owns the two malefic houses the 6
th
and the 11
th
and hence he is a malefic. 6
th

house indicates disease, enemy and debts. 11
th
house is a house of maraka for a dual sign.
If he aspects the Lagna or the Lagna lord accidents or wounds may happen. Trouble from
enemies will be there often. There will be no good things coming from the elder siblings,
but only troubles will be coming from them. Whatever it is, being the lord of the house
of gains he will give both gains and income. At the same time he will give losses and
troubles. He is better placed in the 11
th
house. As far as the 6
th
house is concerned if there
is an exchange between him and with either the 8
th
or the 12
th
lord it will give Vipareeta
Raja Yoga. If he is placed in the 2
nd
house in debilitation and aspected by Mars it will be a
good Yoga. The native may become a teacher or a professor.

48

4.4.6. Jupiter

Having Kendradipatya Dosha on account of the ownership of the two kendras the
7
th
and the 10
th
house and also the Marakathipa Dosha on account of the ownership of the
7
th
house, Jupiter becomes the worst malefic. As per the rule that if a planet is placed in
his own house, that Bhava will flourish, Jupiter if placed in the 10
th
house livelihood will
be good. If he is placed in a trikona Kendradipatya Dosha will not affect. If he is placed
in the 1
st
or the 7
th
house it is not good. If he aspects the 11
th
house livelihood will be very
good. If he is placed in the 4
th
house it will create Simhasana Yoga.

Generally, Government officer, teacher, professor, lawyer, head of a religious
institution are some of the positions this native is likely to get. Possibilities also exist for
professions in Central Bank, Banks, Income tax, Revenue department, Judicial, Religious
endowments, hospitals, Government offices, educational institutions.

4.4.7. Saturn

Owner of the 8
th
and 9
th
houses. Generally it is said that Ashtamadhipatya Dosha.
8
th
house is the house of longevity. If he is placed there, long life, good finance,
satisfactory improvements in life will be the results. If it is in the 9
th
house advancement
in business and benefits through father and such good results will ensue. If he is exalted
in the 5
th
house good results will follow.

4.5. Benefic-Malefic explanations

4.5.1. Benefics

Since Mercury is the Lagna Lord and Venus lord of the 5
th
trikona these are the
two benefic planets.

4.5.2 Yogakarakas

Many scriptures state that 5
th
lord Venus is the only yogakaraka. But in
Thandavamalai, it is stated that the 9
th
lord even if he gets any other lordship or conjoins
any other malefic he will not give malefic results. Hence Saturn and Venus are capable of
giving Yoga.

4.5.3. Malefics
49

Sun because of the ownership of the 3
rd
house, Mars due to ownership of the 6
th
and 11
th

house and Jupiter due to ownership of the 7
th
house are malefics. Mars is a full malefic.
Since Jupiter got the ownership of the 10
th
house, he is half benefic and half malefic. Mars
and Sun are malefics.

4.5.4. Maraka Lords






This is a verse (N0. 53) from Chandra Kaviyam meaning that Moon will not kill.
The rest three planets namely Mars, Jupiter and Sun are capable of inflicting death.

As per the general rule lords of the 2
nd
and 7
th
house are marakas and as per this
rule Moon and Jupiter are the marakas. For a common sign the lords of the 7
th
and 11
th

house are special marakas and hence Jupiter and Mars become special marakas. Since Sun
owns the 8
th
to the 8
th
house viz. the 3
rd
house, he also becomes a maraka. Out of these
many authors have stated that Moon will not kill. Since Sun is a friend of Lagna lord
mercury, he will also not kill. Since Jupiter becomes a maraka as per the general as well
as the special maraka rule and also the lord of the 11
th
house Mars will be inflicting death.

5.5. Planetary Lordship results

5.5.1. Moon

Being a Lagna lord is a benefic. He is karaka for bodily comforts, fame, and
livelihood through self earnings, finance, and intelligence. Moon is also karaka for
mother. Hence she should be strong. Due to a strong Moon, results of Lagna will be good
and higher. Good name amongst people, good business, sharp intellect are some of the
good results that will be coming. If she is spoiled health will suffer. Diseases related to
blood or chest will trouble the native. Disrepute and opposition will come. Ascending
Moon or Shukla Paksha Moon is considered as benefic. Being a benefic it is better if he is
hidden is the view of some others. If he is exalted in the 11
th
house it is good.

5.5.2. Sun

57

Lord of the 2
nd
house of family. For a movable sign, 2
nd
house is a maraka place and
hence Sun is considered as a maraka planet. But he will not kill is the considered opinion
of all. Family, speech, finance, education, right eye are some of the karakatwas of Sun.
Hence he should be with strength. If he is placed in own house in the 2
nd
, ability of
speech, high education, financial benefits, good family, fame will be forthcoming. If he is
exalted in the 10
th
, advancement in Government posts will be coming. Generally if he
gets strength, the results of the 2
nd
house will be good. Authority, position and fame will
be there. In he is spoiled, economic crisis, downfall in profession or business or politics
will result. Troubles in the family, separation from the family will all follow. Being a
friend of the Lagna lord it is good if he is placed in 1
st
, 2
nd
, 5
th
, 9
th
, 10
th
or 11
th
houses.

5.5.3. Mercury

Being the lord of the 3
rd
and 12
th
house he becomes a malefic. 3
rd
house is the
Moolatrikona sign. 3
rd
house indicates courage, success, younger siblings, army, friends,
servants, and prowess. Hence if he is placed in the 3
rd
house which is his own house the
above stated results will be good. Again being a malefic if he is spoiled good finance will
be there. House, courage will flourish. If he is placed in the 5
th
, 7
th
, 9
th
or the 10
th
house,
education and writing capability will increase. If he is placed in the11th house, bad effects
of the 12
th
house will diminish. If he is with strength, brathru bhava results will be good.
But the native will not get any benefit from them.

5.5.4. Venus

Venus owns the 4
th
and the 11
th
houses. 11
th
house is a badhakasthana and 4
th
house
is a Kendra place and hence becomes a malefic. Both the houses indicate important
things. Generally speaking being a malefic it is better if gets spoiled. If he is spoiled
badhakathipathya will be spoiled and health will be good. But finance will get spoiled. If
he is with strength health will suffer. But finance will be good. Normally in general for
any Lagna, if the Badhaka lord goes to a Trikona, the blemish of the Badhaka place will
leave and will result in a yoga is the opinion of Pulippani Sithar. If he is placed in the 5
th

and 9
th
it is good. Finance will be good. If he is placed in the 2
nd
or the 12
th
or along with
mercury in the 12
th
or with the Sun in the 5
th
will give yoga. According to my experience,
for the Cancer Lagna people mothers comforts will not be there. In the dasa of Venus
and Saturn Antardasa or in Saturn dasa, Venus Antardasa, there will be health problems.

5.5.5. Mars

58

Being the lord of the 5
th
trikona and the 10
th
Kendra, Mars becomes a complete
Rajayoga planet. He should be with strength. If he is placed in the own house of 5
th
,
getting progeny, support from children, writing ability, research in Shastras, oratory will
be forthcoming. If he is placed in the exaltation house of 10
th
, graciousness of Goddess
Mahalakshmi, higher posts, admiration by people, fame amongst kinsmen and similar
such Rajayoga results will be there. May be working in army or police. When he is
exalted and Moon is either in own house or in exaltation or to his 7
th
(Moon) in Scorpio
Mars is placed will produce a dhana yoga. Even if he is debilitated in Cancer, being the
4
th
from the 10
th
house and 5
th
from the 9
th
house, good results will be there. If exalted
Jupiter joins such Mars, great Rajayoga results will come. Even if the other planets are
spoiled, if Mars alone is with strength it is enough, there will be very good results after
the age of 40. Wherever Mars is placed, there will be no Mars Dosha for this Lagna.
Army, Police, Government office, Post and telegraph, Electricity department, Housing
development, Public works department, Industry, Engineering are some of the fields
where native of this Lagna may be serving. Doctor, Engineer, Village administrative
officer, Collector may also be got.

5.5.6. Jupiter

Owner of the 6
th
and 9
th
house Jupiter become a benefic. 6
th
house is the
Moolatrikona house for Jupiter and 9
th
house is a strong trikona house, only the benefic
results will be pronounced. If he is with strength it is good. If he is in the 2
nd
house,
native will be a good speaker. If he gets spoiled, normally troubles will be there. Only
when he joins Mars, he will give Rajayoga. As the ownership indicates both father and
enemy, after the death of the father, native will go higher and higher in life. A strong
Jupiter will increase the results of the 9
th
house.

5.5.7. Saturn

Saturn becomes a malefic due to the ownership of the 7
th
and 8
th
house. Karaka for
longevity, he himself becomes karaka for the house of death also. At the same time, for a
movable Lagna, 7
th
house is a special maraka place, he becomes a strong maraka. Opposed
karakatwa is there. If he is in the 7
th
he will aspect the Lagna. If he is in the 8
th
, house of
death and his own house and so he will not kill. If in the 7
th
, devotion to husband, respect
to elders, pious wife will be the results. If placed in other places, family life will always
be in trouble. If he is in own house in the 8
th
, long life, economic advancement,
abundance in life will be the good results. If he is placed in the 3
rd
, 4
th
, 6
th
, 8
th
or 11
th
it is
good.

59

5.6. Malefic-Benefic explanation




( -54)

This is the verse from Chandra Kaviyam. Meaning that for those born under Cancer
Lagan Mercury and Venus are malefics. Jupiter and Mars are benefics. If Jupiter and
Mars conjoin good yoga results.

Benefics Lagna Lord Moon, the 5
th
and the 10
th
lord Mars. Jupiter is half benefic and
half malefic.
Malefics Owner of the 3
rd
and 12
th
house Mercury, 4
th
and 11
th
lord Venus. Jupiter is half
malefic. Saturn because of ownership of maraka place as well as lordship of the 8
th
house
is a malefic.

5.7. Yogakarakas

Mars and Jupiter are the two yoga giving planets. Majority of the authors have stated
that Venus is a malefic. But Kalidasa in his Jataka Chandrika states that Venus alone
gives yoga. In Bavartha Ratnakara it is stated that if Venus is in the 2
nd
or the 12
th
house,
there will be yoga. He also says that Mercury will also give yoga results.

5.8. Maraka Lord




(-55)

Meaning that for those born under Cancer Lagna, Sun will not kill. Lord of Virgo
Mercury when he is joined with Venus will kill. In their dasa or Antardasa death will
happen.
Sun is the lord of the 2
nd
house and hence he becomes a maraka. But being lord of a
single house and also a friend of Lagna lord Moon, he will not kill. Saturn being lord of
60

the 7
th
house which is the special maraka house for movable Lagna becomes a maraka.
But Saturn is also lord of longevity and hence will not kill. Hence Badhaka lord Venus
and the 3
rd
lord Venus are the only marakas. Being an enemy to Lagna lord Moon and
giving the natural results of Saturn, Rahu also becomes a maraka.

6.1. General Points

Fifth in the zodiac, Leo represents the stomach of Kalapurusha. This is Agni or
Fire tatwa or element. Rises in the head and hence Sirshodaya Rasi. This is an Odd, fixed
and male Rasi. The Nakshatras included in this rasi are Makha, Purvaphalguni and
Uttaraphalguni 1
st
pada. Lord of this Rasi is Sun. Out of the nine planets Sun is
considered as the King and Moon is treated as Queen. The house of Raja is a palace-is it
not? Hence this sign is called as Kings rasi. As nobody can be above the King in a
country, this Rasi does not allow anybody to be exalted or debilitated in it. Hence nobody
can have any claim over it. A Kingly planet maintains its status and remains as a status
of the King.

This indicates the heart of the Kalapurusha. Some say that Cancer indicates the
heart. And Leo indicates the portion between stomach and navel. This sign indicates a
mountain without water, forests etc. Short statured rasi. Up to 20 degrees in this Rasi
Suns Moolatrikona and the remaining 10 degrees is treated as his Own rasi.

Moon and Mars are friends of Sun. Jupiter and Mercury are equal. Rest are enemy
planets. Hence houses of friendly planets which are Aries, Scorpio and Cancer are
friendly rasis to Sun. Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are equal rasis. The rest are
enemy rasis. Majority have accepted this view.

6.2. General Results

strength, character, truthfulness will prevail for those born under this Lagna. They will
not be disturbed by praise or scorn. Everything will be forgiven and they will easily

6.4. Planetary Lordship results

6.4.1. Sun

Being a Lagna lord is capable of giving yoga. Health will be good. Good name and
fame will be there. Will have administrative capability. Finance will be plenty. He can be
with strength but should not be spoiled or weak. If he is spoiled, finance and health will
suffer. Unnecessary blame and reputation will be the result.

67

If Sun is placed in own house or exalted it is a good position. He can be placed in
the 6
th
, 10
th
or the 11
th
. Generally placement of Sun in the 5
th
is not good but being a Lagna
lord it can be considered as good.

6.4.2. Mercury

Owner of the 2
nd
and 11
th
house Mercury is considered as a malefic for Leo Lagna.
Family, finance and gains are basic things required for running the life. Having got the
two most important karakatwas, the reason for branding Mercury as malefic is his
maraka powers. If he is in strength, financial gains, profits in business are likely. A
strong Mercury will give worries about health but will be favourable for finance,
education, family, speech, gains, profits etc. One surprising thing here is that if Mercury
is hidden or spoiled, health and education will not get spoiled because hidden mercury is
full of knowledge. But the other good results will be reduced. Mercury is a friend of Sun.

6.4.3. Saturn

Getting the ownership of the 6
th
and 7
th
house, Saturn is said to be a malefic. Since
6
th
house is a bad house. At the same time the 7
th
house indicates spouse, business and
friendship. The 7
th
house is his Moolatrikona place. Because of this he becomes a planet
of equality. Hence during his period diseases, debts and losses may be expected. If he is
in the 6
th
house it is called Sarala Yoga. In the 7
th
house he gets dig bala. If he in the 10
th

house Rajayoga will result. Even though an enemy of Sun, he will not crate trouble as far
as spouse is concerned. Possibility of working in the fields of Cinema, politics, drama,
dance, music, shipping, Railways, Bus transport, Airlines, glass industry, Government
office, import-export etc. In the field of business it may be dealing in ornamental and
artistic things, spices, aromatics, silver, lead, intoxicants etc.

6.4.4. Mars

Mars owns the 4
th
and the 9
th
house. Since lordship of a Kendra and Kona is there,
he becomes a yogakaraka. Comforts, maternal comforts, dexterity, house, vehicles will be
controlled on account of the lordship of the 4
th
house and father, fortunes of father,
fortune, luck, devotion and charity will be governed by Mars on account of its ownership
of the 9
th
house. All the above indications will be good if mars is in strength. If he is
placed in 3
rd
, 4
th
, 6
th
, 9
th
or 10
th
house is considered as special. Joining with Venus and
placement in beneficial bhavas will create Dharma Karmadhipathy yoga. If with these
two, if Jupiter also joins it will be one of the best yogas.
68


6.4.5. Jupiter

Jupiter owns the 5
th
and 8
th
house and is considered as a malefic. Since the 5
th
house
is the Moolatrikona place and also because he is a friend of Lagna Lord Sun, there are
benefits through him. If he is connected with the 5
th
house, there will be good progeny.
Economic prosperity will be there. Passing the departmental examinations and getting
promotions are likely. If he is spoiled above stated results will be affected.

6.4.6. Venus

Owner of the 3
rd
and the 10
th
house. It is good if he is with strength. If placed in the
3
rd
house it will give good results.

6.4.7. Moon

Even though a friend of the Lagna lord Moon is not getting good lordship as he
becomes the owner of the 12
th
house of losses. If he is in the 11
th
it will be good. Generally
for any Lagna if the 12
th
lord is placed in the 11
th
, the malefic results will be turned into
benefic ones. Hence 11
th
house Moon will give a better economy. It is better if Moon is far
away from the Sun-the farther the better. Combined with Saturn or Jupiter if he is in the
6
th
or the 8
th
or the 12
th
Moon will give benefic results.

6.4.8 Benefic-malefic explanation




. (-56)

Meaning: For those born under Leo Lagna Saturn and Venus are malefics. Sun and
Mars are benefics. If Mars and Venus conjoin there will be yoga.

Sun being the Lagna lord and Mars getting the ownership of a Kendra and trikona
becomes benefic planets for Leo Lagna. If they are in strength good results will come.
Fifth lord Jupiter will also give benefic results.

69

6.4.9. Yogakarakas

Mars As stated earlier due to ownership of a Kendra and trikona he is the only yoga
karaka for Leo Lagna. But the 9
th
house is also a Badhaka place for this fixed rasi. If the
10
th
lord Venus joins Mars, Dharma Karmadhipati yoga results.

Venus Being owner of the 3
rd
and 10
th
house, the 3
rd
house being a maraka place, losing
the karakatwas of 10
th
house, capable of bringing death. If conjoins with Mars, yoga will
result.

Jupiter On account of ownership of the 5
th
house is a benefic but the ownership of the
8
th
makes it also a malefic. But since the 5
th
house is a Moolatrikona place and with a
good conjunction will give beneficial results.

Malefics Mercury, Venus and Saturn are malefics. Mercury owns the 2
nd
and 11
th

house which are considered as good places but since the 2
nd
house is a maraka place he
becomes malefic. For Venus Kendradipatya Dosha and maraka Dosha on account of
ownership of the 3
rd
house which is a maraka place for fixed lagna, he becomes a malefic.
Saturn becomes a malefic due to ownership of the 6
th
and 7
th
.

6.5. Maraka Lords




. (-57)

Meaning: Mercury will not kill those born under Leo lagna. Saturn and Venus are the
only two marakas. Since other planets do not get maraka powers they will not kill.

Mars on account of Badhaka place lord may kill but will do so only if conjoined with
another maraka.
Saturn due to ownership of the 6
th
and 7
th
is likely to inflict death.
Venus getting the ownership of the 3
rd
house of maraka may end the life.
Mercury being the owner of the 2
nd
house of maraka will also kill.
Jupiter being the owner of the 8
th
house which is a special maraka place for fixed rasi can
also become a maraka.

7.5. Benefic-malefic explanation




(-58)

Meaning: For those born in Virgo Lagna Jupiter, Mars and Moon are malefics. Saturn
and Venus are benefics. They are capable of bestowing the yoga. If Venus and mercury
are conjoined Rajayoga will result.

7.5.1. Benefics: Mercury being lord of 1
st
and 10
th
house and also being a Lagna Lord
becomes a benefic. Due to ownership of the 9
th
house Venus also is a benefic. Saturn
being the 5
th
lord is also a benefic. Therefore Mercury, Venus and Saturn are the three
benefics.

7.5.2. Yoga Planets: Mercury, Venus, Saturn are Yoga lords. If Venus and Mercury
conjoins Dharma karmadhipathy yoga will result. If Saturn also conjoins with them the
Dharma Karmadhipati yoga will get strengthened. If Venus is placed alone he cannot
produce a Raja Yoga is known as per experience.

7.5.3. Malefics: Mars, Jupiter and Moon are malefics. Due to ownership of the 7
th
house
being a maraka place Jupiter becomes a malefic. For dual Lagna lord of the 11
th
house is a
maraka and hence Venus getting the ownership of the 11
th
house becomes a malefic. Since
Mars owns the two malefic houses 3
rd
and 8
th
, he is the next malefic.

7.5.4. Maraka



. (-59)

79

Meaning: For those born in Virgo Lagna Venus and Mercury will not kill. Moon,
Jupiter and Mars are the maraka planets

Mars, Jupiter, Moon and Venus are the 4 planets capable of brining death. Though
Chandra Kaviyam says Venus will not kill due to ownership of the 9
th
house, but being
the lord of 2
nd
house, a maraka house, in experience it is seen that Venus is also capable of
inflicting death. Also Jataka Alankaram endorses this view. Mars is the first maraka due
to ownership of the 3
rd
and 8
th
house and also an enemy of Lagna Lord Mercury. Jupiter
in addition to the Kendradipatya Dosha also gets Marakadipatya Dosha and hence he also
will be a maraka. Moon being the lord of the 11
th
house of maraka, he is also a maraka.

Generally depending on the ownership of the planets Mars, Jupiter and Moon are
the primary marakas. The dasa of the planet which comes first out of the above three and
if he is with strength, death will surely happen.

Owner of Lagna as well as the 6
th
house. Even though Lagna is an auspicious
house, the lordship of the 6
th
house indicating diseases, enemies and debt being a
Moolatrikona house, the bad ownership gets strengthened. Hence Mars is considered as a
malefic. But being a natural benefic and because of the ownership of Lagna he is
considered as a benefic. For the people of this Lagna there will be sufferings on account of
sickness or disease and there will always be some opposition. But the native will cross
those burdens and will become successful in life. If he is placed in the 6
th
house it will not
do good. But the author of Chandra Kaviyam says that is Mars getting the ownership of
the kendra houses of 1st, 4
th

th

Mars is a full benefic. If he is with strength Gods grace will be there. Progeny will be

account of speculation are some of the bad results that may come. Hence Jupiter must be
strong.

Owner of the 3
rd
and 4
th
house, though gets the ownership of a maraka place will
not be considered as a malefic as for Fixed Rasi the 8
th
lord is the maraka. He is
considered to be a benefic only. If he is placed in his own house in the 3
rd
there might be
some small distress or disease. If he is with strength, siblings, education, house, vehicles
will all increase. Generally for the people of this Lagna if Saturn Dasa should not come as
the 1
st
or the 4
th
dasa, but if it comes as the 2
nd
, 3
rd
or 5
th
dasa it will be good.

9.4.4. Venus

th
and 12
th

th
house

feelings if Venus is in strength. There will be some diseases or other either for the native
or for his spouse. Income will come without much effort. But due to the ownership of the
house of loss, at the end of the dasa whatever was given will be taken back. Generally it
is stated that if he goes into hiding it will be good. If he is spoiled, seventh house matters
will also get spoiled.

9.4.5. Mercury

Being the owner of two bad houses, the 8
th
and the 11
th
and also because of enmity
with the Lagna Lord Mars, Mercury becomes a full malefic. However, since the
ownership of the 11
th
house of gains is there, there will be gains. Hence if Mercury is
strongly placed income will be good. At the same time health and advancement in life
will not be good. If Mercury is spoiled health will not suffer but income will get spoiled.
There is likely to be loss also.

9.4.6. Moon

th
house which is a Badhaka place for the fixed rasi, he
becomes a malefic. Being a friend of the Lagna lord and also because of the ownership of
the strong trikona the 9
th
house, if Moon is placed in any trikona, the Dosha on account
of the Badhaka place will be removed and will have luck, improvement in life,
professional advancement, finance. She should be strong. If she is week, troubles to
father, separation from father, financial loss, sufferings in life will be the bad results that

th
house of karma, he becomes a yogakaraka. It is

malefic. Due to the ownership of the 8
th

th
house, Mercury becomes a malefic.

Mars and Sun are benefics. Saturn and Moon will not kill. Only Venus and Mercury will
kill. If Sun and Mercury conjoin it will give Rajayoga.

Majority authors are of the opinion that Sun and Mercury are benefics. The 5
th
lord
Mars is also considered as a benefic. But the author of Chandra Kaviyam states that
Saturn, Sun, Mars are the three benefics.

10.5.2. Yogakarakas

The 9
th
lord Sun, the 10
th
lord Mercury and the 5
th
lord Mars are the yogakarakas. If
Sun conjoins either Mars or Mercury there will be yoga. If all the three are conjoined it
106

will give rise to a strong Dharma Karmadhipathy Yoga. Hence Sun and Mercury are full
yogakarakas and Mars is a half yogakaraka.

10.5.3. Malefics

Since Venus owns the two bad houses of the 6
th
and the 11
th
, he alone is a malefic.
But the author of Chandra Kaviyam states that Jupiter and Venus are malefics. That is
because of the Kendradhipatya Dosha of Jupiter.

10.5.4. Marakas

Generally the lords of the 2
nd
and 7
th
houses are marakas. But for a dual Lagna the
7
th
and the 11
th
house lords are special marakas. As per this, the 2
nd
lord Saturn, 7
th
lord
Mercury and the 11
th
lord Venus are all marakas. This has been accepted by a majority
authors.

Saturn being a friend of Jupiter will not kill unless he is exalted in the 11
th
house.
Only Mercury and Venus will kill. Jataka Alankara author says that only Saturn will
kill. But others have not accepted this. Hence Mercury and Venus are the strong

11.5.1. Benefics
115


Venus on account of the ownership of the 5
th
trikona and the strong Kendra, the
10
th
house, he becomes a fully benefic planet. Mercury on account of ownership of the
strong trikona, the 9
th
house, he is also a benefic. This is the opinion of many authors.
Saturn in spite of being a Lagna lord is not a benefic due to the ownership of a maraka
house.

Therefore Venus and Mercury are benefics. But the author of Chandra Kaviyam
says Mars is also a benefic. It might be due to the ownership of the 4
th
house.

11.5.2. Malefics

Moon, Mars, Jupiter are the malefics as said my many. Chandra Kaviyam takes
Moon and Jupiter alone as malefics and treats Mars as benefic.

Due to the ownership of the 7
th
house of maraka, Moon gets the Apamrithyu
Dosha. The 3
rd
and 12
th
lord Jupiter is also a malefic. Since Mars is the lord of Badhaka
place, he is also considered as malefic by many except the author of Chandra Kaviyam.

11.5.3. Yogakarakas

Since Venus gets the ownership of a Kendra and a trikona he is the full Rajayoga
planet. Since 9
th
house is a strong trikona and owner of this house Mercury also becomes
a yogakaraka. Since the 9
th
house is the Moolatrikona of Mercury, the lordship of the 6
th

house will not be affected. If Mercury and Venus conjoin it will be a great Rajayoga.

11.5.4. Maraka planets

Saturn owns the 2
nd
house. Moon is lord of the 7
th
house, Jupiter owns the 12
th

house. Sun is lord of 8
th
house and Mars being owner of the 11
th
house becomes a Badhaka
lords.

Generally all these five planets are maraka planets, Jataka Alankara author says
that Saturn is capable of inflicting death. But majority opinion is that since Saturn being
a Lagna Lord and karaka for longevity, he will not kill. Sun will not get the blemish of
the 8
th
house ownership and hence he will not kill. Therefore, Moon, Jupiter and Mars
are capable of inflicting death. According to Chandra Kaviyam Moon and Jupiter are the
strong marakas.

12.4. Bhava results

12.4.1. Saturn

Owner of Lagna as well as the house of loss, Saturn is considered as a benefic.
Because Lagna is the Moolatrikona sign. If he is with strength, bodily comforts, dignity,
name, fame, income will be good. Longevity will increase. He should not be spoiled.

12.4.2. Jupiter

Owner of the 2
nd
house of finance and 11
th
house of gains, assumes importance
because himself is karaka for finance. Nut it cannot be said that he is a benefic or a
yogakaraka. But he will give the results of the karakatwa of the planets conjoining him
and also the bhavas aspected by him will flourish. For example if he aspects Mars as well
as the 10
th
house, native may get a job in Government. If he aspects the 4
th
house and
Venus (house of vehicles and karaka for vehicles) yoga for having many and high ended
vehicles may come. Hence Jupiter should be placed in a good benefic bhava and should
conjoin the lord of the bhava or aspect him.

12.4.3. Mars

123

Owner of the 3
rd
house of courage and the 10
th
house of livelihood, Mars is
considered as a benefic only. Courage, success, advantage from siblings, higher positions,
army, police, Government will be some of the departments native may get employment.
There will be always the benevolence of Goddess Lakshmi. The good placements in
profession is possible only if he is placed in his 3
rd
or the 10
th
house which are his own
houses. Since 3
rd
house is a maraka place for fixed Lagna, if Mars is with strength health
may not be satisfactory. Other aspects like siblings, courage, success, business etc. will be
good.

Government offices, police, army, postal department, medicine, industries, fire
service, building industry, engineering, banks are some of the fields the native may work.
In the field of trade Building materials, matchbox, housing plots, kerosene, electrical
appliances, gold ornaments, pearl can be mentioned.

12.4.4. Venus

As per the special rule Venus being the owner of the 4
th
Kendra and the 9
th
trikona,
becomes a Rajayoga planet. A doubt may arise that Kendradipatya Dosha as well as
badhakathipatya Dosha may come. But Thandavamalai says (as per sloka below) when a
planet gets both Kendradipatya dosha as well as a badhakathipatya Dosha that planet will
give a Rajayoga.

.

Hence Venus is a fully yogakaraka. If he is with strength, education, house, vehicle,
mothers comforts, finance, paternal property, guru (teacher), Gods gifts will be good. If
Venus is spoiled, the above said results may suffer. He should be with strength.

12.4.5. Mercury

Owner of the good bhava the 5
th
house and the bad bhava of 8
th
house. 8
th
house for
Mercury is his own, exaltation and Moolatrikona house only the malefic ownership gets
strengthened. Hence he is a malefic. If he is in his own house in the 5
th
, the results of the
5
th
house will be good. If Saturn or Venus conjoins Mercury good results will follow. If
he is placed in the 8
th
house and is not associated with other malefics that will give rise to
Sarala Yoga. Long life, strong mind, courage, good learning, finance and children will be
good. If he is placed in the 9
th
house, due to the Bhavat bhava result putra bhava will be
124

strengthened, but debts, worries and troubles will also be there. Generally it is good if he
gets associated with the benefics.

12.4.6. Moon

Owner of the 6
th
house diseases, debts and enemies, Moon becomes a malefic. If he
is with strength Asthma, cold in the chest, stomach pain, appendicitis, sinus will be the
diseases with which the native will be afflicted. If he gets debilitated in the 10
th
it will be
good. There is an opinion it will be good if he exchanges houses with Lagna Lord Saturn.

12.4.7. Sun

Owner of the 7
th
house. Even though father of Saturn, both are enemies. Still being
a Kendra lord he is considered as a benefic by many. If he is placed in the own house of
7
th
, good spouse will be coming. Wealth will increase after the coming of the spouse.
Business will increase. Will have good comforts and influence. If he is spoiled the above
said results will change. There will be losses and troubles from Government. If is
debilitated in the 9
th
house, blemish to the spouse, financial loss, destruction or loss in
partnership business will be experienced. Hence Sun should be with strength.

th
trikona. Chandra Kaviyam says that Saturn is also a benefic.
125


12.5.2. Malefics

Jupiter, Moon and Mars are the malefics as per many classics. Even though Mars

th
Kendra he is considered as a malefic because for a fixed
Lagna the 3
rd
bhava is a maraka place and Mars gets the ownership of the 3
rd
house too.

12.5.3. Yogakrakas

Thandavamalai says Venus alone is capable of giving yoga results. Mercury was
not considered as a yogakaraka since he gets the ownership of the 8
th
house. Jataka
Alankara says Mercury is also a yogakaraka. Chandra Kaviyam says if Venus and Mars
conjoin there will be Rajayoga. Hence Venus if placed alone results will be good. If
Mercury, Mars and Venus conjoin there will be good results.

12.5.4. Maraka Planets




(-68)

Meaning: Jupiter is the owner of 2
nd
and 11
th
house. Even though 2

and 8
th
house and
both being a bad house Venus becomes a malefic. Since 3
rd
and 8
th
house indicates
longevity, if Venus is with strength finance will not be good. If he is placed in own 8
th

house it will be Sarala Yoga. If he is exalted in Lagna long life, name, fame will increase.
Kendra and trikona placements are also good.

13.4.4. Mercury

Owner of the two Kendra 4
th
and 7
th
Mercury gets the blemish of ubhaya
kendradipatya Dosha and becomes a malefic. An enemy of Lagna lord. But is a karaka for
comforts, learning, mother, house, vehicles, spouse, partner in business, married life and
general comforts. If he is conjoined or aspected by Jupiter and/or Mars and is with
strength, finance will be good. If he is placed in the 2
nd
, 6
th
or the 8
th
house health will get
spoiled. If he is placed in trikona, Kendradipatya Dosha will leave and beneficial results
will be there. Placement in Lagna or the 7
th
house is not good. Dosha will aggravate. If he
is placed in the 10
th
house education and profession will be good.

13.4.5. Moon

Since Moon gets the ownership of the 5
th
house of Purva Punya becomes a benefic.
It is better if he gains strength. Finance, knowledge, intelligence, prophecy, luck will find
an upward trend. Intelligent sons will be born. Gods benevolence will be there. If he is
spoiled the above stated good results will not be there. If he is placed in 11
th
house it will
be a dhana yoga. If he is in Cancer along with Mars, Moon dasa will be a yoga dasa.

13.4.6. Sun

134

Owner of the 6
th
house of disease, enemy and debts, bad ownership results. He is a
friend of Lagna lord. As the Sun is also considered as a Lagna next to Janma Lagna and
Moon, if he is with strength, bad results will not be there. But there will be many
enemies. But capacity to win over them will be there. If he is in the 2
nd
house health and
finance will be spoiled. If he conjoins Saturn many troubles will be given by him. If he is
placed in the own house of 6
th
, he will be an independent monarch. But will be of
obstinate character and will get their work done. For the sake of fame will waste their
time and money.

13.4.7. Saturn

Owner of the 12
th
house of loss and the special maraka place of 11
th
house being the
dual Lagna which is also the house of gains, becomes a malefic. House of gains is an
important house. He should not be spoiled. If he is with strength, income will increase. If
he is spoiled income will go down and health will also be spoiled. If he is placed in the 3
rd
,
5
th
, 6
th
, 8
th
or the 11
th
house it will be good. If Saturn is Aries and Mars is in Capricorn it
will be a Dhana Yoga. Reason being there is an exchange between 2
nd
lord of finance and
11
th
lord of gains. Saturn here gets Neecha Bangha also. Industrial improvement, house,
vehicle, bondage, political improvement will all be there.

13.5. Benefic-malefic explanation




. ( 69)

Meaning: For Pisces Lagna Saturn, Mercury, Venus, Sun and Jupiter are malefics. Mars
and Moon are benefics. If Mars and Jupiter conjoin (The verse ends here and the result of
this combination is stated in the next verse) it will be a Rajayoga.

13.5.1. Benefics

Moon due to its ownership of the 5
th
trikona and Mars due to the ownership of the
9
th
trikona are considered as benefics. This has been accepted by almost all.

13.5.2. Malefics
135


Venus due to bad ownership of the 3
rd
and 8
th
house is a malefic. Mercury, owner
of the 4
th
and 7
th
house due to the blemish of maraka place as well as Badhaka place
becomes a malefic. Sun, owner of the 6
th
house of enemies, debts and diseases becomes a
malefic. Saturn, owner of the 11
th
house which is a special maraka place for the dual Lagna
and also because of the lordship of the 12
th
house of losses becomes a malefic.

13.5.3. Maraka Planets




. ( 70)

Meaning: The owner of the 6
th
house of disease, debt and enemy, Sun is a maraka.
Owner of the 3
rd
and 8
th
house Venus is also a maraka. Strength less Saturn is a maraka.
Mercury is also a maraka. All the four will inflict death in their dasa.

Above stated malefics namely Mercury, Saturn and Sun are capable of killing.
Mars even though is owner of the 2
nd
house of maraka will not kill as per Thandavamalai.
Saturn due to the ownership of the 11
th
house of special maraka place and Mercury getting
the ownership of the 7
th
house of maraka become strong marakas. Others will inflict
death depending upon their placement. That is to say that the other marakas stated above
will kill if they are placed in maraka places or other bad houses.

13.5.4. Yogakarakas

Moon due to ownership of the 5
th
house, Mars due to the 9
th
lordship and Jupiter on
account of the 10
th
lordship are yogakarakas. Jataka Alankara says that Mars and Moon
are yogakarakas and that is because of Jupiter. Thandavamalai says if Jupiter conjoins
Mars and Moon there will be yoga and Jupiter left alone will not give any yoga. Chandra
Kaviyam says that Jupiter is a malefic but if he conjoins Mars will become good.
Generally for any Lagna the conjunction of 9
th
and 10
th
lord produces Dharma
Karmadhipati yoga and if another trikona lord viz. 5
th
lord joins there will be Rajayoga.
Hence Moon, Mars and Jupiter conjunction will produce Rajayoga.

14. Explanation on timing of important events

So far I have explained about the 12 Lagnas. I feel that the timing of events given
will be of some use to all. It is enough if we know the dasa and Antardasa running for a
native when he has come for consultation. One can easily say whether the event asked
for by the native will happen or not from the Dasa-Antardasa given for each important
events.

It is stated that in a particular dasa and particular Antardasa/s, a certain event will
happen. It is also possible to happen the other way also viz. In the Antardasas stated may
become dasa and dasa may become Antardasa. For example for Pisces Lagna it is given
that In Moon dasa, Jupiter Antardasa marriage will happen. Alternately marriage is also
likely to happen in Jupiter dasa-Moon Antardasa. Likewise for all events it is to be
understood. That is to say that the dasa-antardasa are interchangeable.

Additionally, if the Gochara or the transit of planets are also taken into
consideration while pronouncing the results, there may not be any mistakes. The aspect
of Jupiter bestows many beneficial results while in transit. If Jupiter is aspecting the
Bhava relevant to the question asked by the native or the Bhava Lord, the event will be a
successful one and most likely to materialize. For example, in the above case if the transit
Jupiter aspects the 7
th
bhava or its lord then marriage is definite.

14.1 Double transit

Double transit is said to happen when Jupiter and Saturn in their transit aspect one
and the same Bhava. The results indicated by the Bhava is bound to flourish. In the
example cited above if both Jupiter and Saturn aspect the 7
th
bhava, the results of the 7
th

bhava will definitely materialize.

Jyotish has been written keeping in mind the male gender. However, it is
applicable to female also though there might be slight changes and/or deviations for
them. For example for male 8
th
house indicates longevity and for female it denotes the
Mangalya Place or the longevity of the husband also. These points have been clarified in
the book Effects of planets on horoscope. The dasa-antardasa results are of general
nature.
