Maharshi Bhrigus Bhrigu Sutras Introduction The original book BHRIGU SUTRAS, which I am translating has no introduction whatsoever and hence, I am unable to say anything about the author thereof. It gives valuable hints and aids, in delineating the character amp fortunes of a native , in various walks of life. What is popularly known as Bhava Phala effects of the houses in standard texts, is dealt with a direct touch, and with particular reference, to the planets stationed in various houses, the aspects they receive and the fact, that a planet is in exaltation, own or enemy house. Even a cursory perusal of the book, would convince even a professional astrologer, that this book can enable astrologers, to predict the future of a native, and form an opinion about planetary dispositions in a horoscope, with a fair amount of ease. Sage Bhrigu, like other authors, has described in anumber of slokas, acts of sexual perversion, arising as a result of peculiar planetary mappings. With a view to maintaining literary decency, these have simply been termed as quotsexual perversionquot. It will be seen that the Sage indicates occurrence of certain important events in a natives life at specified ages. It was noticed by me, in a number of horoscopes, that, though the events forecast, have actually occurred, the years of their occurrence in about of the cases were different. I have not been able to ascertain, as to how the Sage has fixed the various ages, at which the events were to occur and why they occur late, in a number of cases. Despite this slight discrepancy, Bhrigu Sutras, will prove to be a valuable aid to practising astrologers in making decisions, on important questions concerning nativities. Part II of this book is comparable to a FirstAid Box or South Indian Cuisine Aviyal which can contain all the vegetables that a cook can lay his hands on. Important information on Bhava Phala, transits, assessment of strength of planets, major periods and their effects etc. have been included.

Many such marriages have taken place and there are cases of such couples carrying on normally. it appears that the majority do not know precisely the extent of the Yoga. the presence of Mars in th/th from Ascendant.

Quantum of Angaraka Dosha The slokas referred to above merely say that the evil arises by virtue of stay of Mars in certain houses but not the quantum of evil in the different houses. in some cases at least.

Whilst everyone is conscious of this evil. to shortcircuit spinsterhood for the girl. it operates from Asdt. Even for boys with this or similar evil. how the evil works and how it ultimately leads to premature death of the native or his partner. We personally do not subscribe to this view in full that the dosha arises from Asdt for boys and from Moon/Venus for girls. It is not uncommon to come across advertisements seeking horoscopes of boys/girls with Kuja Dosha in th. force from Moon and with force from Venus without distinction of sex. We have therefore. the quantum of evil which arises by reason of Mars staying in different signs of zodiac is also not given. to this evil and have also been witnessing cases of boys and girls remaining unmarried until well past their youth because of nonavailability of suitable horoscope with this evil. From our personal contacts with astrologers and students in the field. the horoscope with this evil is not even considered by others. How does Angaraka Dosha arise In practice.

No wonder ones life gets shortened. either clinically or through religious ceremonies. To be conscious of ones own defects.

Credit goes to a Hindu Astrologer of Bombay who at the end of th Century. How Do You Read A Horoscope This note is dated October st. it is but natural they get dejected and go about asking professionals How do you read a Horoscope I shall. Maharshi Parashara says. this science is for those who implicitly believe in God and sayings like BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA and so on. with an unbiased mind and the horoscope details should be approached . as I have been able to guess from my experience. One has to read a horoscope impartially. The writer knew the native of that horoscope intimately.Not only did the prediction come true but the writer was able to witness how the saying BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA worked. therefore. with an Estate to his share of the order rupees fifty lakhs. we should not doubt the Hand of God behind each horoscope. in the first six slokas of his immortal astrological classic BRIHAT PARASHARA HORA. Just as we believe that every pot of milk we buy contains ghee. First and foremost. tables etc. had the rare courage to forecast beggary in the th year of a native. I am also detailing the various items of information. While noting down grahasputa. Like the Siamese Twins or Dionne Quintuplets. as all the secrets of Gods creation cannot be known to mankind. one should have firm faith in Astrology and then only. said to be the gist of destiny. approach the matter in a cool and dispassionate manner. My fear that the Indian panchangs are not accurate is so much that in the last years. for the planetary positions are periodically verified through large telescopes. I have never read or given an opinion on a horoscope. BV Ramans Ayanamsa. Leave them alone. I also make a note if there was an eclipse Lunar or Solar on the preceding and following Full Moon or New Moon days. I once came across a case where. Today. I have observed that parallel aspects many a time broadly act like a conjunction in one sign. as they forecast many auspicious events whilst nothing . Other phenomena to be noted are whether any planet is in Ati Manda Gathi. I am afraid the majority of horoscopes that we are called upon to read nowadays are wrong in certain respects. proceed further. The reasons for these discrepancies are our Panchang compilers are still following the outofdate siddhantas. Also. Sun or Moon has to be taken into consideration. Maha Bharatha. Now coming to the subject proper. lord of and standing in good position. These have their own effects. Vedanta and Gita have certified and assured us that Astrology is the LIGHT with which one can read the AKSHARA MALIKA garland of letters written by Lord Brahma on the forehead of everyone. there no two Panchangas almanac or ephemeris which tally with each other. Ramayana. Where a horoscope does not fit in for a native or where predictions go wrong. during the major period of Mars. if there are any strong parallel aspects between planets. Manda Gathi or Ati Seegra Gathi or Sthambana stationary. degrees and minutes given in most Indian horoscopes do not tally with the actual positions occupied by planets on date of birth when verified with the positions given in standard ephemeris converted to Nirayana. The majority of the horoscopes that we see today are those erected with reference to such unreliable panchangs. Jyotishacharya CG Rajan of Madras openly admitted that the Vakya method of compiling panchang cannot be relied upon. subject to making due allowance for the difference in Ayanamsa. So. unless I have checked and recast the horoscope with reference to Raphaels Ephemeris for the Year of Birth and using Prof. which may not come within the rules. The grahana peeda for Rahu. in an inquiring mood with utmost respect to the planets and not as if one is going to do a simple arithmetic calculation. which fooled many astrologers. Almost three decades ago. today. I think. Almost all the Maharshies of India including those who have compiled the Maha Vakya. there may be a freak case. Veda. locate the error and rectify the horoscope. almost all the topranking astrologers use Raphaels Ephemeris. one in a thousand. possibly the grahasputa planetary positions expressed in signs. where there is no possibility of error. Vakyas and what not. from these. with the possibilities of Mercury and Venus finding their way into different signs when checkedup. Remember the adage GRAHANAAM AMSAKAM BALAM. Further.even there. The reason for failure of a prediction need not always be due to the difference in ayanamsa. Navamsa chakra should be drawn as the astrologer can estimate the kshetra bala of a planet from this and Rasi chakra. of more than ordinary importance. a majority of horoscopes we now handle are correct only upto Rasi Chakra . BV Raman wherein he was reading the horoscopes of natives of different continents using his ayanamsa and tallying certain personal events in their lives. place them in the order of their positions ascending order by degrees. Where there are two or planets. subha madhyama for a planet enables it to confer benefic effects more than what the present astrologers estimate. like that happened and the reason I found was that the Lord of major period Mars was stationary on the day of birth. Having ascertained the correct grahasputa. Hindu astrologers merely find out the ascending degree and also the th bhava madhya. Bhava chakra is of pivotal importance. Rectification There is almost a fancy for many to rectify a horoscope. through whose grandfathers books I first started my study of astrology. It may be due to wrong time of birth or not reading a horoscope with correct grahasputa or failure to do rectification of a horoscope where needed. we get the bhava arambhas. Navamsa is compared to the roots of a tree. Prof BV Raman. you could make out whether a planet is in subha madhya or papa madhya hemmed in between benefics/malefics and the proximity to one another or a malefic. erect the Rasi Chakra placing within the signs the planets. I have explained a method of rectification based on actual events in life and adjusting Garba Sista. Further. Whilst its importance is realised. I have not. found any reason to forsake this ayanamsa. Ayanamsa The Ayanamsa used by me is that followed by my Guru. There is thus the quot equal . from Rasi Chakra itself. This is called for only in cases where actual readings begin to fail and not in all cases as a rule. I changed over to this Ayanamsa some years ago having read a number of articles by Prof. so far. Subha madhyama or papa madhyama occurs rather rarely and is certainly. as they actually stand on the horizon. opposites of these being descendant and Nadir. Broadly speaking. so that. whereas the astrologer would be giving predictions based on one lordship only following the Bhava Chakra drawn by him in Hindu fashion. The th house aspect between a planet say. the astrologer sees a whether a planet is in bhava sandhi or Rasi sandhi. events not forecast. Thus. an aspect between a planet in the last navamsa of Pisces and another planet in the first navamsa of Libra is ignored for the latter happens to be in the th sign from Pisces. the entire chart is converted into Nirayana by deducting the Ayanamsa. I think this is one reason why. the individual cusps are obtained for each latitude. Navamsa. this system may not be found wanting. Dasamsa profession and any other chakra necessary in a particular case are drawn in traditional style. thereafter. house quot system followed at least for every houses put together. The Rasi. suddenly spring up causing bewilderment both to the native and the astrologer. it is converted into Nirayana. Quite possibly. that planets like Sun and Moon will be owning say half of one house and half of another. using the same ayanamsa used for conversion of grahasputa of the horoscope. Similarly. In other words. This system is known as Placidian. in many cases. I cast the Bhava Chakra using Western methods and the Table of Houses published by Raphaels . Having worked out this type of Bhava Chakra. in the first navamsa of Pisces and another in the last navamsa of Virgo is taken as full. this system is good enough for Equatorial Regions and say up to on either side of the Equator. In other words. aspects are not assessed in a realistic manner. To ensure greater mathematical accuracy. for major part of India. in many major periods and subperiods. The astrologer having a look at the traditional Bhava Chakra in the absence of Bhava arambhas reckons lordship over houses and bases his predictions on that. subha/papa graha madhya b proximity to malefic/benefic if any in same sign c the gravity of combustion if any or planetary battle and d lordship of a planet in exact proportion. The Bhava Chakra Nirayana alone is drawn by me in circular fashion in Western fashion showing the Bhava Arambha of each house in place of the cusp points and planets are inserted in the same manner as if it were a Western Horoscope. with the help of which. so that while giving predictions. may in fact be having lordship over or houses. Aspects In many cases. It happens. For instance. the methods of casting a horoscope and compiling grahasputa I follow. thus having two lordships. aspects are being considered as if theres a wall at the end of . is exactly Western. planets like Saturn who own two signs.
