The Vedic aspect rules are:. Planets aspect houses whether they are occupied or empty. All planets aspect the house opposite to the house they occupy and all of the planets in the opposite house. Mars aspects the houses 4 and 8 ahead of it counting the house Mars is in , Jupiter aspects the houses trine 5 and 9 to it, and Saturn aspects the houses 3 and 10 ahead of it. Moon in the 4 th or 10 th. Venus in the 1 st or 7 th. Jupiter in the 1 st or 5 th or 9 th or 11 th. Jupiter in the 3 rd or 7 th or 9 th or 11 th. In other words, if an ordinary significator happens to aspect the house that represents the same person or life theme then it becomes elevated to primary significator status.
Sensitive points for specific Ascendants. For the indicated rising sign, each of the planets below is both the significator of and house ruler for a specific person. This article also gives several examples of applying this principle. The ruler of houses aspecting or occupying their own house. This is again Ascendant based. The table on the next page shows what houses the ruler of each house has to occupy and what person it will then signify for each Rising Sign.
The table took a lot of time to construct, but will make it easier for someone not familiar with this approach to apply these principles. Look for example at the planet that represents yourself in your chart by first finding your Ascendant, and then looking to see which planet signifies you which will always be the ruler of the Ascendant , and then notice what houses it has to be in to become the primary significator of you. If it is in one of these houses, then everything about that planet in your natal chart its strength, aspects, house, sign, etc.
The Effects upon Primary Significators. Any aspect to the primary significator affects the person or life theme greatly. Any major transit to the primary significator will similarly affect the person or life theme signified either directly things get better or worse or their relationship with the native. The condition of the significator e.
Both Venus and the 7 th house are descriptors of relationship themes. And what about Rahu?
But both increase the power of the rasi planet owner as well. If ketu sits in any sign say Venusian sign and is also conjunct or trinal to venus, then the power of venus in the planet will increase a lot. Thanks VS!
Your replies are the most logical of any online astrologer I have seen! Keep up the good work! The ascendant and rasi was Aquarius. And that that is responsible for the hurdles in getting married for the native. Even more than the fact that Mars is in 7th. The owner of 7th house Sun is sitting in the 8th house with Mercury exalted , separated by about 3. Rahu-venus-mars in same trine or conjunction in the Kaam trikona will lead to a hypersexual nature and destroy relations due to the same as well.
Mars in 7th causes mrit avastha of the 7th during its dasa and bhuktis. Infact they both act as magnifiers of energy. Just to add to this…what do you think about the Rajyogas that I mentioned? Based on your articles, I think both good and bad yogas can co-exist. Good and Bad always coexist in astrology like in real life. Astrology is meant to be a means to predict real life events of people. Hello Vivek, I see scandals for Ketu and not for Rahu. I thought Rahu, given its nature would have that signification more than Ketu.
Is it possible that Rahu would be about financial and sex scandals whereas Ketu would be about spiritual related scandals like that of God-men? Ketu by itself does not give anything.
Rahu -ketu axis affecting AL can give pre disposition for scandals. Does that not make the case worse since Ketu has an unpredictability to it? What if this mars is with Rahu? What will be the affect? Different from what you mentioned? And what if this Mars with Rahu is also Retrograde. How will that modify the result if the depositor is well placed — say in 11th house?
Thanks AJ. Hi vs sir I meant to ask whether ketu increase the power of rajyoga if it is sitting in trine.
How would rahu behave for leo lagna if it is with exalted venus in 8th house of pieces and jupiter in 9th house of aries.. When it comes pratyantar dasa, how much importance is given. In case the ongoing MD — ad is not supporting, can we look at the PD for results. Regards, adi. If L1 doesnt promise something, L2 and L3 can not provide it.
A planet in good house but negative sign give good results or a planet in bad house but friendly sign gives better results irrespective of benefic or malefic planets for lagna. While the converse is true for Jupiter. Have you found this to be correct?
Hello VS: Like there are avasthas for planets, is there avastha for bhaavs? A planet in marana karaka sthana e. Jupiter in the 3rd will cause harm to the bhaav. Is this an avastha effect on the bhaav? What is the difference between this effect and the lord of that bhaav ,say 7th, posited in the 12th loss of the 7th bhaav? Hi VS. For Aries ascendant,jupiter sitting in 9th house MK ,exalted in Navamsa but very weak shadbal, no aspect on it, no conjunction, wearing yellow sapphire will be auspicious?
Dear VS, Is there such a rule that if 8th lord and 9th lord aspect each other, 9th lord dasha becomes average to negative but 8th lord dasha gives the results of 9th lord? I heard its a rule written in phaldeepika. If yes, are there any exceptions where 9th lord dasha would give its own results i. Not sure. Honestly in my research, marriage is one area I have not focussed on that much and I feel that the Point system, manglik etc are not accurate mostly.
One needs to just match overall vibrations of one chart with another more than these finer details. For example, sun and moon exalted in navamsa in d1, moon is 5th lord and sun is 6th lord but in navamsa moon is 8th lord and sun is 9th lord. Also, does the placement such as in dushtana etc matter for navamsa?
Moon will tend to give results of taurus in the effects related to D9 marriage, overall dignity of the planet etc. Your email address will not be published. The Art of Vedic Astrology.

His book, The Lunation Cycle , was a breakthrough in synthetic astrology.
He made it very clear that planets do not exist singularly, that they are in relationship at all times.
The significance of the soli-lunar cycle was found in its waxing and waning cycles - the natural laws of relationship are fluctuating all the time, manifestly and subtly. Well, when are they? Rarely, and when they are, a sense of perfect inner harmony is the result.
That it results from how we are innately and how we perceived our parents is closer, much closer to the truth. Which body, Sun or Moon, is best exemplified by mother and which is more father could vary in many ways at different times in our lives. We come back to the dialectic of nature and nurture. There are characteristics which are distinctly lunar and others which are solar - if we consider various significant aspects of our motivating forces in life, for example: conscience; habits; responsibility; relating; ego-development; creativity, and so on, we might look upon the Sun and Moon and find in which way each of these bodies have played roles in the dominant way we achieve the end result of each of those character building, individual components.
This is a list of keywords to be associated with contemplating the value of the luminaries in the horoscope. They are not definitions for each body. We have both a Sun and a Moon , and two parents. The Sun is the centre of the solar system, and in the family of planets acts in just that way. It has high expectations of the others, and in itself, the Sun is the most powerful figure in the horoscope. As the focus, the Sun represents how our life-force was received in the family and how our self and ego develops in accord with family values.
The Sun can overpower other planets in the horoscope in quite primitive ways, when the ego-nature of the individual is stronger than and disconnected from his or her conscious sense of integrity or ethics. The nature of the Sun is to radiate, outshine and expose all things to its relentless light. It is the attention seeker, the planet which defies all, even Pluto, to check its power.
The Sun has authority, but equally that authority can be undermined, thwarted or subverted by other planets, as it is a rare chart that has an unaspected Sun. The Sun is the archetypal father-image, the heroic principle, and is usually associated with the male role-models in the family and the paternal line. The Sun in the chart can appear to stand alone. This often shows an individual with an extremely unique way of being and one who finds it very uncomfortable relating to the average standards of his or her culture - particularly his or her family system!
The physical presence or absence of the father seems irrelevant in many cases, because the underlying archetypal expectation of the father is stamped in the solar figure in the horoscope. This is clearly both positive and negative - if we have to bear unrealistic expectations and must consciously overcome the failures of our father, then we can suffer undue guilt and responsibility-feelings. Our Sun can be arrested in its development in order that the issues unresolved in our father can be transformed through us.
However, even the most basic psychological knowledge shows us that unresolved complexes in the parents are passed on for the children to seek solution. We will find that the solar legacy is one which most frequently runs down through the paternal line, and is then passed on through the next generations. Both men and women can carry paternal legacies - men identify more with the male principle through the Sun with respect to their sense of male-identity and desire to build, conquer and protect, while women utilize the solar legacy in their desire to control and conduct lives independent from the emotional zones of families and relationships.
Aspects formed by the Sun to other planets are often a literal image of how we perceived our father and his influence in our heroic - productive - life. As mentioned previously, the Sun needs challenge to develop its potential characteristics and assist in the development of the ego. Usually, it is the father who enacts this kind of role-model for the children by being elusive, exciting, unpredictable in his appearances, big, strong, foreign to the nest, influential in the governing of the family, et cetera.
This structure may appear to be archaic in its description, but then archetypes are out of time and lie at the base of our social and personal lives.
Sometimes the father is strong in influence by his absence and conversely weak by his presence. Individuals with the Sun rising or in the MC of the chart experience extraordinary pressure to succeed in whatever endeavour is undertaken. This can be fun if the person is allowed to slowly develop his or her own interests and is allowed to show-off on a regular basis all that she has accomplished!
The Sun strongly placed in the angles like this does indicate a powerful psychological connection to the father and the person carries the father with them into everything that is presented to the world. An unaspected Sun is an indication that the individual will need to find a completely new way of using his or her ego to find something outside the family dynamic to pursue.
The unaspected Sun person will find it exceptionally difficult to conform to the family, but will attempt to do so until a turning point occurs, allowing them to set off in their own direction. There is usually a very strong longing for a father, or father figure, but because there is no aspect from the Sun to another planet, there is no clear image of the father in the psyche.
Hence, the person has to become their own father, or to become their own authority. All the words that stem from the Latin auctor - author, authority, authenticity, and all derivatives are especially significant for unaspected solar people. They must find inner validation rather than seeking it from without. This often means long periods of wandering, looking, seeking and searching for purpose and direction in life.
To preface this delineation, remember that these are themes , that is, they can manifest in either direction, overtly or covertly. They can also be made obvious by negation - for example, a Sun-Jupiter theme can be so inverted in one person that it results in one family member being very introverted, never travelling far from home, having narrow viewpoints and very little in the way of social energy, while another member of the same family travels widely, has a variety of activities, enacts for the others the exciting, dramatic and expansive life.
Likewise, a Sun-Saturn theme can run from being terribly successful and goal-oriented to being downtrodden and melancholic, not fulfilling his or her fullest potential. With that mind, these are two examples of the energetic solar themes of family dynamics:. The family is heroic and adventurous, and often, competitive energies flow through the family psyche. This can produce high-achievers or counter with strong conservatives and depressives if Saturn is part of the theme , executive types and self-made men and women. Wanderers, mavericks, renegades and individualists are lovingly, though occasionally grudgingly, respected.
Note: in Vedic astrology, the forward sextile of Saturn is a preeminently powerful aspect even if the orb is wide by Western astrology standards. Re: Finding your mother in your natal chart Mother can be associated with the 4th house of the horoscope from Ascendant and the Moon.. No part of the messages sent on these boards may be copied without their owners' explicit consent. I'm curious because I don't study modern astrology is the idea that the Mother, as represented by the Moon, because Cancer is considered the "natural" fourth house? Spouses of your children would be shown by the 7th partner of the 5th and additional house influence child.
If combined with Jupiter, there is a manic-depressive atmosphere where someone is always countering or balancing the extremes - this family usually produces a mediator-type who trots back and forth or who suffers because of enmity between two others in the family whom she or he loves equally.
