Auspicious and Inauspicious years

E-mail Print PDF

The quality of the year is defined by the transit of Jupiter through the Rāśi or signs. Each Rāśi occupied by Jupiter is said to symbolise one of the twelve rivers which gets blessed by the presence of Jupiter in it. Jupiter stationed in this Rāśi makes the river auspicious for visits and during the first twelve days of Jupiter’s entry into these Rāśi the auspicious event of Puṣkara Tirtha is held where the river is bathed in and worship performed to attain salvation.

Notably twelve days corresponds to the average motion of Jupiter through one degree of a Rāśi. Similarly one Navāṁśa or 3º20’ takes fourty days for Jupiter to cover, giving us deeper insight into the importance of spiritual rites performed for the length of forty days.

Ramblings on Ayanamsa

E-mail Print PDF

A topic which brings much doubt and tests the faith of newcomers in Jyotish is the topic of Ayanamsa. Where our western counterparts who use the tropical zodiac aren’t affected by this problem, those who use the sidereal zodiac, or a zodiac based on star positions are cast into a deep dilemma as to which ayanamsa to use. Where western sidereal astrologers are almost forced to take the plunge into learning the intricacies of the ayanamsa and thereby choose the ayanamsa they like the best, vedic astrologers are presented with a peculiar situation where faith tends to be the compelling factor in choosing ayanamsa.

This writeup doesn’t claim to ascertain a correct ayanamsa, but tries to shed light on the many different facets of the ayanamsa, and some possibilities within the same.

Grahana - Pata Gochara (nodal transits)

E-mail Print PDF

Solar and Lunar eclipses occur every six months, with both eclipses ocurring within fifteen days of each other. These two close eclipses, their time of ocurrance and the rasi/nakshatra of the luminaries during both events, are most relevant for analysis.
The analysis of eclipses adds significant relevance to the use of nodes transit in the zodiac.

हरे राम कृष्ण॥

Published on the Srijagannath forum.
Dear Ramesh, Namaskar
This is aiming towards a more advanced understanding of retrogression. Consider this he NEXT level of understanding of the topic.

When we go deeper into retrogression we can no longer settle with simply recognizing two motions of planets, namely Direct vs. Retrograde, but must now consider THREE motions namely:
Direct - Chara (rajasic state)
Stationary - dvisvabhava (sattvic state)
Retrograde - sthira (tamasic state)
