Is ours an ideal democracy!! Hardly so, it is far from being an ideal democracy; where there should be  two equal opponents, like Conservative and Labour party in Britain; like Republican and Democratic party in USA. As for India, for the two major parties here i.e. Congress and BJP there has never been a state of relative equilibrium. There was a time when Congress was all powerful for a long time, BJP had not come into existence then. BJP came into existence and gradually spread its wings and the status now of present election result on 23 May 2019 is that BJP alone bagged 303 seats and 353 seats along with its NDA Alliance. Congress on the other hand could muster only 52 seats; along with UPA, Congress got 91. Other parties won 98 seats. What to talk of equality, Congress party could not win even 55 seats which is the requisite 10 % to become the official opposition. read more...

Medical doctor by profession, the writer is a very active member of the research group which he joined after passing our two year course in astrology.– Editor

Our ancient classics on astrology have condemned the debilitated (Neecha) planets while all exalted (Uccha) ones have been praised. But in practical horoscopes sometimes results are to the contrary. We see a lot of horoscopes of many persons with debilitated planets and they have achieved high status in life, while many with horoscopes with exalted planets have not done well in life.

Why it is so? It is because no horoscope should be analysed just on the basis of single positive or negative factors. The over all disposition of the horoscope and the inter-knitting of planets and rashis in the various houses of the horoscope is the most important factor in delineating a horoscope.

Given below are the horoscopes of a couple in which the 10th lord is debilitated, and destiny took them to Indian Revenue Services in the same batch and also to marry happily. It is a romance of debilitated 10th lords Indeed.


The Horoscope at a glance (Jan 10, 1956, 0100, Delhi)

This person is born with vargottama Tula lagna with a balance of Mercury dasha at birth and Ketu and Venus to follow which are yogakarkas in this horoscope.

A prominent feature that would need close look is that in this horoscope all the yogakaraka planets are well placed and are inter-connected through conjunction, inter-change or aspect. It can be seen thus.

1. Venus, the lagna lord, with Mercury, the 9th lord, is in 4th house with digbala.It is a combination of the trikona lord (Mercury) and the kendra Lord Venus which as lagna lord is both, trikona and kendra lord. So here Mercury and Venus are well placed in 4th house in sign of Saturn, another yogakarka. The 4th house is the house of simhasana, which literally means the throne of a king. In modern parlance, it should mean a good status in life.

2. Further, these two planets, Mercury and Venus, are being aspected by its dispositor, Saturn, who is the lord of 4th and 5th and, is the best yogakarka for this lagna. In this way Saturn is also connected with Mercury-Venus and, in fact three planets (Saturn lord of 4th and 5th, Mercury lord of 9th Venus lord of lagna) are well connected to each other forming a strong Raj yoga.

3. The Moon, the 10th lord, is with Saturn in the 2nd house, along with Mars lord of 2nd and, of the 7th another, kendra, Since malefic lord of the kendra are good. So conjunction of Mars with Saturn is another less potent rajayoga. The Moon is lord of 10th is again conjunct with Saturn and Mars and is again involved the rajayoga.

So in fact, all the rajyoga planets, Saturn, Moon, Mars, Venus, Mercury are related to each other by conjunction and aspects and are involved in causing a powerful Rajyoga and Dhanyoga combinations.

Further, with all the rajyoga planets are connected with Rahu in Vrishchik who will behave like Mars and other planets associated with it. So in a way, Rahu will also act under the direction of yogakarka plants.There is also exchange of 3rd and 11th which, among other things, indicates that the native will earn money through his own efforts.

Saturn and Jupiter lord of 5th and 6th and Jupiter and Mars lord of 6th and 7th are in kendra from each other which is further a Rajyoga and Dhanyoga combinations.

Then the royal planet Sun is placed in Dhanu rashi aspected by Jupiter (also in exchange) so the Sun is under great benefic influence of Jupiter. Further there is Uoobhayachari yoga, which is a good yoga for prosperity and happiness.

In this horoscope the Moon the 10th lord a yogakaraka planet is debilitated with a clear-cut Neechabhanga rajyoga, as Mars its dispositor is associated with the Moon. So the Moon is further involved is Neechabhanga Rajyoga. Gaja Kesari Yoga, Amla Yoga, Vishitsha Yoga, Kedar Yoga, Vasumati Yoga, Chandra-Mangla Yoga are also present. These are all benefic yogas for happiness and prosperity.

According to Bhavaratha Ratnakar for Tula lagna, Jupiter the lord of 3rd and 6th is also a yogakaraka planets. Mutual position of Moon/Venus at 3/11axis is another Rajyoga according to Parashara. Further, if Karka rashi is aspected by Venus and Jupiter the native will earn great fame as per Jataka Tatwa. Here the Karak rashi falls in 10th house and is aspected by Venus and Mercury.

Examination of horoscope from Moon Lagna

The examination of a horoscope, when done from the Moon, helps in the analysis of a horoscope. The conjunction of Moon and Mars lord of 9th and 1st, exchange between Jupiter and Sun lord of 2/5 and 10th and the aspect of Mercury Venus to the 9th house are the few good points to note from Moon lagna

In the Navamsha the above said rajyoga are little diluted but present is other forms.

The lagna is vargottama. The lagna lord Venus is debilitated and is in the 12th house, but in exchange with Mercury in 8th house so there is an exchange of 8th and 12th house lords coming under Vipreeta Rajyoga, On the other hand this is again a combination of lagna and 9th lord as in birth horoscope.

Mars and Saturn again yogakaraka planets are well conjunct in house of gains, the 11th house, the house of Sun, where Sun is in exchange with Mars lord of 2nd. So there is a strong dhanayoga of exchange between 2nd and 11th, which is further strengthened by the presence of Saturn and Ketu.

Moon in the navamsha has improved and is in Jupiter's sign and is also aspected by Jupiter, causing gajkesari yoga both in the birth horoscope and the navamsha.

Rahu is also well placed in the 5th house in a sign of Yogakaraka and is further aspected by Saturn/Mars/Jupiter.

Now comes the Dashamsha, for the fructification of the above said rajyogas it is necessary to examine dashamsha, the chart of profession.

In the dashamsha the lagna is again Tula, vargottama*. The best part of it is that all the yogakaraka planets which we have discussed above will remain the same and if they are well placed the person will shine well in his profession. Let us examine.

Mercury and Moon lord of 9th and 10th are well placed in the 4th house aspecting the 10th house.The dispositor Saturn, lord of 4th and 5th again a rajyoga karaka planet is in exchange with Mercury. Lord of 9th, 10th, 4th and 5th are in association, a very stong rajyoga indeed. The lagna lord Venus is well placed in 9th house and is aspected by Saturn by 10th aspect, So here again Saturn/Mercury/Moon/Venus are very well associated.

The Mars and Sun lord of 2nd and 11th are conjunct together in 11th house so the very well formed rajyogas are being reinforced by strong dhanyoga combinations in rashi, navamsha and dashamsha charts.

No wonder the native was selected for Indian Revenue Services in 1981 and may reach to the top in the hierarchy of Taxation.

There are other good and bad combinations in the horoscope pertaining to other aspects of life, but I have not discussed them here as this article is limited to the 10th house of the person.The other events explained here are to see the correctness of the horoscope and to demonstrate the composite approach in anlaysing a horocope.

Examination of the horoscope – Jaimini

There are strong Jaimini rajyoga, which are marked in the chart they are 6 in the birth horoscope and 3 in the navamsha and again 4 in the dashamsha. The AK and Amatya Karak are 2/12 in birth chart but 3/11 in navamsha and dashamsha.

The Amatya Karaka is in exchange with Putra Karaka the Jupiter the natural benefic. The Amatya Karaka is well placed and is not in any bad aspect, which indicates good rise is life and service. The effects of all these rajyogas will be analysed through the Jaimini Char Dasha also in composite approach.

Selection in Indian Revenue Service (IRS) in May-June 1981

1. In Vimshottari Dasha Ven/Mon/Sat all the 3 planets are yogakaraka for this horoscope and are well placed and connected in Rashi, Navamsha and Dashamsha Venus is with Mercury lord of 9th and Saturn and Moon are together in 2nd house.

2. In Chara Dasha Mina/Mithuna, the dasha is of Mina in 6th house, the house of competitions. It is aspected by Amatya Karak Sun. Thre are no bad aspects on it from here the Amatya Karak is in 10th house i.e in Dhanu so this rasi dasha is good for career.

3. The antar dasha is of Mithuna the 9th house which is again aspected by Amatya Karak with no other bad aspects. The 10th house from here is again Meena rashi which has already been explained. As all the rashi are well apsected by Amatya Karaka, and the Amatya Karaka is in 10th from rashi dasha. This dasha is quite competent to give the benefic results. Hence the native was selected for civil services.

Note that the Amatya Karak is in relation with Jupiter the Putra Karak.

4. In transit Saturn was in Kanya, 11th from Moon with 36 points in SAV and 5 points in BAV. Jupiter was also in 11th from Moon i.e the Kanya with 6 points in BAV and 36 SAV. From here Jupiter aspects the dasha lord Venus and the Mina rashi hence gives good result.

5. Both the main planets viz Saturn and Jupiter are in 11th from Moon, hence are expected to give over all good results in reference to the running Dasha.

Marriage on 22nd April 1982

1. In Vimshottari dasha Ven/Mon/Ven was running. Venus is natural karaka and Moon is in 2nd house along with Mars the 7th lord.

1. In Vimshottari dasha it was Ven/Jup/Jup, Venus the lagna lord associated with Saturn the 5th lord is fully competent to give children. The Antar Dasha lord Jupiter is natural significator placed in 11th house aspecting the 5th house and is being aspected by Saturn the 5th lord.

1. In Vimshottari dasha it was Ven/Jup/Mon running. This is same as explained above but here Moon is posited in 2nd house along with Saturn the 5th lord.

2. In Chara Dasha Mesha/Karka the Jupiter natural significator and also Putra Karak is placed in 5th house so the child birth is quite possible. Again the Karka rashi is aspected by Saturn the 5th lord from Karka, the 5th house is occupied by Saturn himself.

3. In transit Saturn was in Dhanu in 3rd house is aspecting the 5th house.

2. In Char Dasha Mesha/Kanya, from Mesha the 10th house is Makar where Atma Karak is posited aspected by Dara Karaka, Putra Karaka and 5th lord Saturn. So a strong 10th house. Antar dasha rashi Kanya is aspected by Amatya Karak and the 10th from Kanya in Mithuna which is again in aspect to Amatya Karaka. Antar dasha rashi is 10th from Amatya Karaka. Here therefore promotion is explained.

3. In transit Saturn was in Dhanu over the 10th lord from Moon viz Sun. Jupiter was in Mithuna aspecting the Sun.

* I have expanded the vargottama concept to the other divisional charts also like Navamsha.
