Bhava and Rashi Sandhi

Sandhi or the transition zone between one bhava and another and between two rashis,

far failed to throw light on the reasons behind the peculiar nature of planets in sandhi
and their effects on peoples lives. Being transitional in nature, sandhis are fuzzy and
grey areas and planets placed in them are extremely fragile. They not only provide
troublesome lives to their natives, but continue to torment them throughout their lives
by being unable to provide the results of their bhavas or their rashis. The asymmetrical
juxtaposition of the rashi and bhava chakras complicates the situation further whereby
bhavas and rashis overlap each other and planets caught in these points, affect both
their rashi and bhava positions. Astrologers have tended to overlook this aspect entirely

where planets in sandhi occupying different rashis and bhavas will not yield results of
one or the other. It is therefore necessary to examine this phenomenon from closer quarters.

Bhava sandhi
There are two existing methods of defining bhavas. One is the universally accepted method of Parasara and the other is the
Sripati Paddhati. The Sripati Paddhati recognises the midheaven or the tenth house as a very crucial point in a horoscope and
one, which cannot be ignored. He therefore charts his path from the lagna to the 10th house, or from Prajapati (the ruler of

lagna) to Indra (the ruler of the 10th house), and divides the area into three parts. This comprises half the lagna, the 11th and the
12th houses and a half of the 10th house.

Parasaras position on the other hand begins with his object of worship, namely Surya and Brahma. Surya the sun god, the

perceptions of the different aspects of his life, as characterised by separate houses. The Sripati Paddhati therefore fails here as
it cannot be applied to the created being, but only for the devas like Indra.

A bhava or a rashi may be defined as nine navamshas. Navamshas are fixed and comprise one fourth of a nakshatra. The

Lagna being a sensitive point, any planet placed in rashi sandhi loses its power to do any good for its own house, and

The native in Chart 1 was born with an unrecorded but an approximate birth time. Upon his birth it was predicted that he would
achieve great fame for himself. On this basis the placement of lagnadhipati Jupiter in Pisces lagna was ascertained outside the
bhava sandhi boundary. For a lagnadhipati placed in bhava sandhi would not have made it possible for the native to have
written several books and acquire a name for himself as he did internationally in astrology. The lagnadhipati in this case has not
only protected the bhava, but being the lord of the lagna placed in its own house, reached the native to great heights of
intellectual creativity and fame.

The above chart is an example of rashi sandhi, whereby the planet placed in rashi sandhi has destroyed its own houses. Mars,
lord of 2nd and 9th houses is placed at rashi sandhi at 05 Taurus, the transitional point between the rashis Aries and Taurus.
Being lord of the 2nd and 9th houses, it has denied the native the fruits of these houses at a physical plane. As lord of 2nd house,
Mars at bhava sandhi has prevented the native from creating and sustaining a home and family. While as lord of 9th house it has
denied her pitrisukh, as she lost her father when she was 21 years. This is a clear example of how a planet placed in rashi
sandhi destroys the houses it owns.
The worst forms of rashi sandhis are known as gandantas. Parasara has identified 3 gandantas, namely, Pisces-Aries,
Cancer-Leo and Scorpio-Sagittarius overlapping their nakshatra gandantas at Revati-Ashwini, Ashlesa-Magha and JyeshtaMoola. Of these he considers the Jyeshta-Moola gandanta to be the worst afflicted and the Revati-Ashwini to be the least
problematic. The deity of the nakshatra lord is to be propitiated for the solution to this predicament.
One must note that a planet placed in rashi sandhi may or may not occupy the same bhava. If the planet is in rashi sandhi and
in the same bhava, it will give the result of the bhava rather than the rashi. If it is placed in a different bhava, the results of the
ownership of the house will prevail. In the case there are too many planets in one rashi, the native will be confused as to what
he truly desires. In this instance the placement of the lords of the bhavas in the different houses becomes very important.

Dear Sir,
the example no. 1 wrt bhava sandhi does not explain how a planet in bhava sandhi fails to give results. In fact,
you have explained how a planet not in bhava sandhi has given good results which is self explanatory. Example
given is not in accordance with the subject author is talking about.
