Secondly here is a chart of a Professor who is working as in the universty over 30 years . she has over 30 students who have done research under her guidance. Although i see her 10th lord of rashi in 3rd house in D-10 conjunct the 10th lord Jupiter of D-10. Would that not make her at receiving end rather than Giving end !

Dear Svati and SK, Namaskar
The provided chart:

Date: April 19, 1952
Time: 3:46:00 pm
Time Zone: 5:30:00 (East of GMT)
Place: 74 E 02′ 00″, 26 N 39′ 00″
Merta, India

We can use all points and principles in all divisional charts, but we must expect that they show different things in each division.
The rasi is our primary concern for us to see how exactly events affect us on a physical and gross level. We get the gross understanding of life from the rasi and an accurate analysis of the rasi can make up for a lot in predictive jyotish.

Varnada Lagna

Varnada lagna shows the dharma you do to sustain yourself. Venus and Jupiter are brahmana’s as are the watery signs. So see if Venus and/or Jupiter associate with the eleventh house/lord from Varnada lagna, or the planets associated are in watery signs. Specifically for teachers Jupiter is important whilst Venus is important for personal consultants.

Further, check the ninth lords (of rasi) sign in Shastyamsa for the actual dharma of life.

In the chart you have provided, the Varnada lagna is in Taurus. The lord of Taurus is Venus itself and can therefore show that she was born in a family who leaned towards the consulting line. Venus is placed in the eleventh therefrom in Pisces it promotes that this is in the academical line of teaching and consulting.


The amatyakaraka works quite differently and shows karma yoga. The Amatyakaraka takes the responsibility of feeding the Atmakaraka and therefore shows whom the Atma is dependant on in this birth. The specific form which feeds the atma is the Palana Devata (sixth from amatyakaraka in navamsa) and is the form of the mother (moon).

In Jyotish to understand the mother/moon better we must understand the udu dasas. Specifically the Vimshottari dasa relates to our sustenance in soceity and community and should be used for reference.

Here a cycle of dependency needs to be understood and if we count in order beginning from Krittka nakshatra, in modules of three, we get the following order of lordships:

1st 2nd 3rd
Sun Moon Mars
Rahu Jupiter Saturn
Mercury Ketu Venus

With this we get three working-classes of society. The upper class ruled by the politicians (sun), business men (mercury) and organized crime or unions (rahu).

The middle class ruled by public servants (moon), teachers and instructors (jupiter) and the priests and mystics (Ketu).

The lower class are the blue-collar workers, or those who have to exert brawns rather than brains (Saturn), the security force including police and military (Mars) and the entertainment sector who wish to attract and capture the minds of the public (Venus).

These class-divisions do not speak of the financial standing of those in them.
Now, as a start you can expect to find that the natives amatyakaraka is associated with one of the three grahas indicating the working-class of the native. I.e. in the chart supplied Mars is the amatyakaraka and receives the rasi dristi of both Moon and Ketu which belong to the middle class and academical sector.

Coming to the dependencies we can refine our understanding of the chart. A politician (Sun) is dependent on the unions (used to be organized crime – Rahu) to get votes. Therefore to be a politician one needs Rahu associated with Amatyakaraka – not Sun. Similarly businessmen (Mercury) depend on the laws made by the politicians (Sun) and therefore Sun has to be associated with the Amatyakaraka of a good businessmen. Knowing this you can draw a triangular dependency diagram.

Dependency Diagram

Sanyasis (Ketu) will have Moon associated with their Amatyakaraka, public servants (Moon) will have Jupiter associated with their Amatyakaraka and finally teachers (Jupiter) will have Ketu associated with their amatyakaraka as per this principle.

In the attached chart of the professor, we did indeed find Ketu having rasi dristi on the Amatyakaraka promoting the academical profession.

Raja-sambandha yoga: If the tenth house/lord or the Atmakaraka associates with the Amatyakaraka then the native will associate with the topmost people in their field and be succesful in this.

Authors comment: Check if a graha is associated with both the Amatyakaraka and the Atmakaraka/Tenth house. The profession of that graha as outlined above will surely give success.

In the given chart Ketu is having Rasi dristi on the Amatyakaraka and is in kendra to the Atmakaraka (variation of rajasambandha yoga) ensuring that success will come in the academical field.


In the chart you have given, if you add 44 seconds to the birth time she would be a teacher in a long-term profession due to Jupiter in the second house. Moon and Rahu in Jupiters signs can indicate the nature of her teaching.

हरे राम कृष्ण॥
Dear Rema, Namaskar
Before approaching the Dasamsa chart, two factors namely the Amatyakaraka and the Varnada Lagna should be perused to see 1) those whom the native depends on to do their work and therefore also the field of work; 2) the varna or dharma that the person must uphold in their work.
Through the above we should be able to fine tune that the native is working within the academical field (amk) and acts as a guide/consultant to people (varnada lagna). You will see more work on these important factors in the future.

Date: July 19, 1946
Time: 3:57:35 pm
Time Zone: 5:30:00 (East of GMT)
Place: 78 E 37′ 00″, 30 N 09′ 00″
Devaprayag, India

Now, in the dasamsa check to see if service is dominating or business. No planets are in sixth or seventh yet the sixth lord is in Lagna.
Now see if Sun (public service) or Venus (private sector) are stronger. Sun is exalted in the fifth house showing that work in public sector will dominate, but Venus in the lagna shows that the native will prefer to involve himself in work for private companies.

Next check the arthatrikona to see what the native will do in these sectors. The planets in the arthatrikona will show long term professions held for a considerable amount of time. Rahu is in the tenth in Virgo showing research and development. Its placed in a mercurial sign showing that this can be either in the educational field or economics. Jupiter is in the second house and aspects Rahu in the tenth confirming that this is focused on teaching and consulting where his primary work will be. The debility of Jupiter is good for finances but nor for stress levels.

I hope this helps.

Yours sincerely, Visti Larsen
