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 Earth’s 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

11

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 earth’s 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).

12

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).

1.5. Planetary Significances:

A planet depending on the signification it attains on account of ownership of a 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.

2.1. General Points: Out of the 12 Rasis the first Rasi is Aries. The 12

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. Sun’s deep exaltation point is 10 degrees and Saturn’s 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.

22

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

23

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:

24

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

25

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

26

the 10 th house from the Moon as well as the Navamsa Lord of Saturn will determine the native’s 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:

2.5.2. Jataka Chandrika:

मन्दसौम्य ससतााः पापााः शभु ैगरुु

सिवाकरौ।

नशभुंयोगमात्रणे

प्रभवच्छे

सनसिवयोाः॥४१॥

परंतुतने

िीवस्य पापत्वमसप ससध्यसत।

कसवस्साक्षान्नहन्तास्यान्मारकत्वेन लसक्षताः॥४२॥

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.

In the above stated periods, marriage is likely for both the boy and the girl. Further for all 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

29

person is running Rahu dasa, Mercury Antardasa or Mercury dasa-Rahu Antardasa, marriage happens.

In the above dasa-antardasa, wife or the husband may suffer hardship, losses, some crisis, diseases or death. Experience shows that in the above periods marriage as well as separation/death/miseries have happened. Hence if marriage does not happen in the above periods it is good.

If Sun, Mercury and Rahu are conjoined and placed in Taurus, Libra or Aquarius it is doubtful whether marriage will take place. Even if it happens it is a question whether there will be any sexual relations between the couple.

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.

31

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.
