The other popular option was to resort to the Arabic Tājaka (Tajaka) taken from the Tājaka Nīlakaṅthī (Tajaka Neelakanthi), a hybrid text resulting from some sort of collaboration. With the Varṣa Tithi Praveṣa Cakra (Varsha Tithi Pravesha Chakra), these issues are resolved and we can replicate the natal analyses in depth and scope so that a given year can be evaluated much as the life of the native is. It is like a life analysis compressed into the duration of the year.
The horoscope is derived on the basis of the replication of the Jaṅma/ Janma Tithi in the transit chart when Ravi/ the Sun revisits the Jaṅma Sūrya/ Janma Surya Lagna. In other words the horoscope is cast for the moment when the exact Tithi or the angular distance between the Sun and the Moon is repeated as at birth when the Sun is in the natal Sun sign. The Tithi denotes the element of water/ Jala and therefore shows connection, social events, the flow of things, love, romance, marriage, feeling, wealth, comforts and money. Therefore many of the nicer things in life can be quite accurately studied from this horoscope.
The dynamic aspects of the horoscope are studied through the Mahādaśās/ Mahadashas in the Tithi Aṣṭottarī Daśā (Tithi Ashtottari Dasha) scheme and the year is divided and studied through the various periodicities. Ketu being the overlord of the Daśā (Dasha) does not have a Daśā (Dasha) assigned in the system.
Note: This work details the horoscopic evaluation for three years each for a couple subsequent to a prior evaluation. The Analysis thus results in a customised work where three successive years in the lives of a couple are evaluated through the Tithi Pravesh Chakra Analysis. This is especially useful once the initial work on the horoscope has been done through the device of the Detailed Chart Analysis or the Detailed Dual Analysis as in this case.

One had the chance to delve into the previous work done for your family. Specifically, the Detailed Dual Analysis that I had written for you and your husband contains some very crucial information in this regard. Regarding your husband, one could see two very dominant factors, one the Matri Shrapa/ the Curse of the Moon and the Pitri Rina/ the debt to the forefathers. In this light it is very heartening indeed that the remedial measures in the form of Shraddha have been performed as without Tarpan and such remedies, these life areas remain afflicted. I must reiterate the overriding and overwhelming importance of the remedial measures suggested for his horoscope previously. The other dominant factor was the Sade-Sati running in the horoscope which still continues. I must reiterate the background importance of continually reciting the Sri Rudra Chamakam which is the most profound remedial measures for this Gochar/ transit of Saturn. Once these natal afflictions are addressed, the positive features of the horoscope have greater play.
One has found frequently that the positive indications of annual horoscopy give immaculate results once the remedial measures for the birth horoscope and the Rashi Chakra are performed diligently. At the cost of repetition I am highlighting these facets so that there is no confusion at all about their importance. The technique of the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is very sophisticated and works very well in furnishing a picture as to the following distinct facets: (i) the overall nature of the Hindu year: whether the year is likely to demonstrate an overall favourable tenor or an adverse one; (ii) the most dominant themes for the year: this aspect tends to focus on the life areas that emerge in some prominence during the course of that year. This facet of the technique can help us in understanding the focus of the Karmic forces for the year so that we might align ourselves better with them; (iii) the vitality factor/ Prana can also be evaluated to judge the health situation at the outset.
Quite apart from the outline factors enumerated above, the horoscope is to be and shall be evaluated in detail much like the natal horoscope. The Varga Chakra and other areas will be investigated identically as in the natal horoscope. The Dasha applicable to the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is the Tithi Ashtottari Dasha.
With this background information, let me start by looking at your husband’s Tithi Pravesha Chakra for the Hindu year 2008. I will combine some of the facets of the analysis for the three years with standout features from the natal horoscopic Analysis so that the fundamental traits of the Karma to be experienced are rendered explicit.
The Vedic New Year for Your husband in 2008 starts in late January. The Tithi Pravesha Chakra for 2008 is cast for the following data: (Omitted to protect the privacy of the client)
The Lagna/Ascendant rising this year in the Rashi Chakra in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is Tula/ Libra which is neither a Trikona/ trine or Kendra/ quadrant from the natal Lagna in the Rashi Chakra which is Kanya/ Virgo. It is the 2nd House therefrom. So this year cannot be said to be either outright favourable or unfavourable. If the Lagna was in a Dusthana from the natal Lagna in the Rashi Chakra, that is, in the 6th, 8th or the 12th Houses, then it may be said that the year carries an unfavourable tenor. But this is not the case. So, in view of the ongoing Sade-Sati, this may be said to be a middling year of a temperate nature.
The next important determinant in annual horoscopy is the judgments of the various factors relating to the Hora Lord who is akin to the ruler of the year in Hindu annual horoscopy. The Hora Lord for the year 2008-2009 for Your husband is Saturn/ Shani. As Tula Lagna rises in the Rashi Chakra in this year’s Tithi Pravesha Chakra, Shani is the Yogakaraka planet for the Lagna and is capable for giving Rajayoga on its own. Given the fact that the overall nature of the year is not outright positive, Shani being the Hora Lord and Yogakaraka for the rising Lagna offsets much of the lack of outright benefit. This is a positive feature in the Rashi Chakra for the year.
Further, Shani is placed in the 11th Bhava from the Lagna as the 4th and 5th Lord of the chart and can help Your husband advance in order to fulfill his ambitions and desires. Shani is joined Ketu in the 11th Bhava from the Lagna which takes away somewhat from the positive placement of Shani; this is a variant of Jara Yoga and he must refrain from succumbing to an all-suffering attitude as this may interfere with his annual prospects this year. One must point out though that this tendency of checked and curbed at the outset is not likely to prove to be much of an impediment as Shani and Ketu are naturally benefic planets and are considered well-placed in the Upachaya Bhavas denoting natural growth through Parakrama/ self-effort. The 11th Bhava from the Lagna is one such Bhava.
The overall indications as to health can be gleaned from the Vara lord. The Hindu weekday on which this year’s Vedic birthday falls is Ravivar/ Sunday and the Sun is the lord thereof. The sun is placed in the 4th Bhava and is Badhak for Tula Lagna. It may bring unexpected troubles to health but these are very unlikely to be serious. The sun in the 4th House carries the minimum Digbala/ directional strength and therefore, the risk lies in neglect. The symptoms of discomfort must not be neglected this year otherwise this can lead to both visits to hospitals as Budh/ Mercury joined the Sun in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna is the 12th Lord of nursing homes and hospitals. Further, the 4th Bhava from the Lagna is also the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna and trading, stocks, mutual funds and personal health can be sources of significant expenditure.
In this regard I would like to reiterate that as pointed out in the Detailed Dual Analysis, the Curse of the Moon must be remedied otherwise speculation will lead to losses. This is what has come about also. Though I was informed, I think, that remedial measures for the Shrapa have been carried out, there was nothing intimated about actual performance of the remedial measures for the Matri Shrapa. You must attempt to perform these as if I recall correctly upon my revisiting the previous work done, the adverse Moola Dasha for Your husband indicating the fructification of the Shrapa is coming to an end and there is no reason at all why the remedial measures should not be done as they will bring unhindered and immediate relief.
I am certain that you would also try hard to address the Sade-Sati and what remains of the 7 ½ years period of this life-altering Gochar/ transit of Shani through the recitation of the Sri Rudra Chamakam. Despite these ongoing challenges in the horoscope and also despite the fact that the Hindu year has not promised to be outright positive, it is very clear that if the remedial measures including the Ratna/ gemstones advised previously are adhered to, this year also has significant positives.
The Arudha Lagna in the Rashi Chakra this year, showing your husband’s manifest personality lies in the 5th House. The 5th House denotes children and new beginnings. The manifest image can be associated with these life areas this year along with associated factors such as expression of intelligence, fame and attainment. The 5th House is lorded by Shani, the Hora Lord and shows the dominant themes for the year. Rahu is placed here in Kumbha/ Aquarius Rashi which it lords along with Shani. The placement of Rahu in the 5th Bhava can show some non-conformist moves this year. Rahu in the Arudha Lagna cautions against anything rash and mired in confusion so let him take important decisions only after careful deliberation. Chandra is the Karaka for all Arudha Padas and Rahu is opposed to the gentle luminary, therefore, even in its own sign, Rahu poses the danger of giving an unpleasant surprise in external, social, financial and manifest life. If the unconventional energies of Rahu are channeled well then the year can bring in enormous bounty. In fact, if these placements occur in a year which is not conditioned by the Sade-Sati, it is certain to be one of financial windfall.
The 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna shows the source of gains. Jupiter and Venus are placed in Dhanu/ Sagittarius in the 3rd Bhava from the Lagna, which is the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. Guru shows gains from consultancy and this is a strong facet as the planet is placed in Dhanu Rashi. This is the best year for your husband to begin the project you have mentioned. Guru is the Karaka for lengthy writing, teaching, wisdom and expression of something meaningful. Guru is placed very powerfully in Dhanu Rashi which is its Moolatrikona sign and the Graha feels as if it would be best served by following the work that it likes. The 3rd Bhava from the Lagna relates to self-expression and to writing in particular as it also shows working with the hands. Shukra placed with Guru adds to the aesthetics and finesse of the work contemplated. Both these planets in the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna sow the seeds for massive gains. There is Rashi Drishti/ sign aspect of other Grahas to this 3rd Bhava from the Lagna which is also the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna.
Moon/ Chandra and Mars/ Mangal form the Shashi-Mangal Yoga in the 9th Bhava from the Lagna. This in itself is a great combination for significant wealth. As these planets are in Mithun/ Gemini Rashi, they aspect the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna with Rashi Drishti, adding to the source of gains. Thus real estate and public dealing also shape up as avenues for gains. I cannot stress the performance of remedial measures previously communicated to you strongly enough in the light of these promising combinations.
Before I dwell more on these positive combinations from the view point of financial gains, I must pause in the light of some of your specific concerns about your husband. Both the Shashi-Mangal Narayan Dasha Shukra-Chandra Yoga also go by the name of Rudra Yoga. Both of these are adverse for health and specifically cause disturbances in blood pressure. Apart from that Guru governs the blood sugar and it is Shukra who causes imbalances in the ability to handle the blood sugar. Thus diabetes is usually precipitated in the Vimshottari Dasha of Shukra in the radix. Shukra opposes the effective handling of blood sugar because it is naturally inimical to Guru.
The Rogapada/ A6 is the manifest expression of illness. The Shashi-Mangal Yoga in the 9th Bhava from the Lagna is conjoined the Shatrupada/ A6 in the 9th House. Symptomatic appearance of both the conditions you have mentioned can happen this year. Guru though in its own sign is placed in the 3rd Bhava which is its Marana Karaka Sthana placement: it is quite uncomfortable there. The Yoga of Guru and Shukra aspects the A6 with Rashi Drishti.
There is Gajakesari Yoga formed by the excellent mutual aspect of Guru and Chandra. This can make the year very positive even given the limitations stated at the outset.
The year is adverse for the mother as seen from the Rashi Chakra for this instant Tithi Pravesha Chakra. The Karaka Bhava for the mother is the 4th house. The Badhak Surya is placed there with the 12th Lord Mercury. Reckoned from the 4th Bhava as Lagna, Sun is the 8th Lord and Budh is the 6th Lord. This does not bode well for her as seen from Your husband’s chart. Chandra is the Karaka for the mother. It shows Your husband’s mental experience of the mother this year. Chandra is joined Mars and is aspected by Venus, which forms two Rudra Yogas making this an extremely tough year for her health. Ordinarily, the aspect of Guru could have salvaged the situation but Guru is in Marana Karaka Sthana and hardly able to better the situation. The manifest expression of this facet can be seen from the Arudha Pada of the 4th House, the A4. This is placed in the 6th Bhava from the Lagna and in the 2nd Bhava from the Arudha Lagna, aspected by Rahu by Graha Drishti/ planetary sight. The lord of the Arudha Pada is Guru placed in Marana Karaka Sthana. All indications seem to point at a worsening of the situation with regard to the mother.
Unless he remedies the factors I have stated speculation and investment even in mutual funds is unlikely to be productive. Especially this Hindu year, this area should not be ventured into as he will most likely lose the money: the reason I have stated before. Budh the Karaka is in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. However, hospitality and investment in real estate are also good areas to think about, as is the hotel/ motel business as Shukra, Mangal, Chandra and Guru are all involved with the source of gains in the Rashi Chakra this year. For more specific details regarding career choices for the year, let us look at the Dashamsha Chakra for the year.
The Hora Lord Shani is placed in the 10th Bhava in the Dashamsha Chakra showing significant events relating to career. Shani in the 10th House is otherwise not welcome as it can threaten a sudden rise and fall. It is joined Venus, the 3rd and 8th Lord. Shukra is a bad planet for this Dashamsha Chakra. The Dashamsha Chakra reveals that your husband must avoid adventure the professional ventures at all costs this year and take extremely conservative and well-thought out steps no matter how inhibited they might seem. This ties in well with the pressures of the Sade-Sati. The 5th Lord Moon is placed in the 8th House in Marana Karaka Sthana showing that emotional and radical new beginnings are earmarked for failure and disappointment. The Lagna Lord Guru is placed in the 2nd House of motivation and future. It is Jupiter he must rely on this year as in the Rashi Chakra this planet promises gains. Rahu is in the Lagna as the 12th Lord and Ketu is in the 7th Bhava as the 9th Lord. I would not recommend partnership this year as the person would be bossy and might want to take a leadership role.
The best option appears to be research based work such as writing. Anxiety and impatience must be avoided as this Dashamsha Chakra warns against any sudden moves in the career. Regarding his writing and book he will be best advised to include distant and foreign sources, publishers and others who might be involved with his work. The placement of Rahu, Saturn and Venus points to that. If the Dashamsha Chakra was more supportive, then the Rashi Chakra was showing heavy quantum of gains. In this sense, this year is more about laying foundations.
The Tithi Ashtottari Dasha applicable to the chart is given below for a view of the timelines operating in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra.
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):
Ven: 2008-01-15 - 2008-03-30
Sun: 2008-03-30 - 2008-04-20
Moon: 2008-04-20 - 2008-06-12
Mars: 2008-06-12 - 2008-07-10
Merc: 2008-07-10 - 2008-09-09
Sat: 2008-09-09 - 2008-10-15
Jup: 2008-10-15 - 2008-12-20
Rah: 2008-12-20 - 2009-02-02
Ven: 2009-02-02 - 2009-04-18
The year starts off with the Dasha of Venus which will tend to give the results of Guru due to Yuti. The theme of gains and overall optimism and width will come but Jupiter will give adverse events related to mother, being the lord of A4 in Marana Karaka Sthana. In the Dashamsha Chakra, Shukra Dasha will give the results of the Hora Lord Shani and your spouse may take some important career decision. Let him do so with the caution I have recommended hereinabove.
The next period of the Sun is likely to lead to expenditure as the planets are placed in the 12th from the Arudha Lagna. The period may also bring some unforeseen troubles. Your husband may want to work for someone in this period.
The next two Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Moon and Mars run the risk of precipitating the health related issues that I have written about previously but will also likely bring mass exposure and interaction with sources of gains. The Guru-Mangal Yoga will prompt the spouse to make strong plans for the year with greater clarity and forthrightness. He should be especially careful to not attempt any Greenfield project at this time because new projects undertaken in the Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of the Moon shown by the 5th House lordship of Moon are susceptible to damage and loss, shown by the 8th Bhava placement of Chandra. The only exception is research which is a signification of the 8th Bhava. The placement of Venus, the 8th Lord, in the 10th House also suggests this and only this.
Budh Tithi Ashtottari Dasha will precipitate heavy expenditure as it is placed in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. Foreign lands and learning, communication and the like could become dominant themes during such a phase. The next Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Shani will be the most crucial and important phase of the year as this will be the Dasha of the Hora Lord, placed in the 11th Bhava from the Lagna and in the 7th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. He would try and emerge out of the shell of the past few years imposed by the Gochar of Shani and may feel susceptible in some manner. Otherwise Shani is well placed and will give a very realistic idea as to what needs to be surmounted in order for life to fully fructify. Mercury Mahadasha prior to Shani will also give some intermittent and independent work of a contractual sort. Shani Mahadasha as that of the Hora Lord will give some important events pertaining to the career and this will likely involve foreigners and foreign lands. Shani is also the 12th Lord of the Dashamsha Chakra.
Guru Tithi Ashtottari Dasha is likely to be extremely good as the planet is placed in the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna and also in the 2nd Bhava of the Dashamsha Chakra as the Lagna Lord. Financially the period will be very promising and motivation and specific direction in the career will emerge. The future patterns and directions in working life will emerge in this Dasha. Consultancy and writing etc will reveal their true import in this period. Rahu is in the 5th Bhava in the Arudha Lagna and shows some unconventional out-of-the-box thinking at the social and manifest level. As suggested, he ought to guard against moves that may cause anxiety at the overt and visible level.
The next Hindu year starts on (data omitted for reasons of privacy). The first factor to be noticed for the year is that the Lagna rising is Dhanu/ Sagittarius which is the 4th Bhava/ quadrant/ Kendra from the natal Lagna in the Rashi Chakra, Kanya/ Virgo. This indicates that the overall tenor of the year is positive. This basically means that if we take the Hindu year to be an independent entity then it promises to favour us. The more specific factors must be examined from the Yogas obtaining in the horoscope for the year.
The Hora Lord/ the ruler of the year is again Shani and it is retrograde, placed in the Bhagya Sthana in the 9th Bhava from the Lagna. This placement of Shani is not entirely welcome as it interferes with luck and fructification of destined positives. Again Shani happens to be in the 7th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. The 7th from the Arudha Lagna is the Dwara through which the Jatak emerges into the world and the placement of Vakra Shani here shows that your husband still has to wait for plans to fully fructify. You must note at this stage that if the Karmic Dashas as judged in the natal horoscope show that adverse Karma is basically over and the positive time has started and still one runs into a heavy and problematic Tithi Pravesha Chakra, the in the ultimate analysis what shall happen is that the better features from the radix will not fructify fully in that year.
Conversely, if the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is excellent and there are some issues to iron out in the radix then the native shall feel that his troubles have been mitigated to a considerable extent. If, however, both the radix and the Tithi Pravesha Chakra show undiluted positives then the native can reap a rich harvest due to the auspicious confluence of Jyotish factors.
There are five planets in the 2nd Bhava from the Lagna with Guru Neecha and Surya in Parivartana with Shani. These are not very good factors at all. Further, all these planets are in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna showing losses and expenses. Guru gets Neechabhanga/ cancellation of its debility due to exalted Mars but specifically real estate consultancy must be completely avoided this year as it may make a very heavy dent in the finances. Mangal exalted will show extreme expenses on commercial property. The planets are joined the A6 and continue to show challenges to the health and some other issues to iron out.
Stocks, mutual funds and the like should be avoided this year but if he is able to make beginnings in the hotel/ motel business in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for 2008, then this will be an extremely rewarding avenue. The reason is that Shukra, the Karaka for this business, is exalted in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna and in the 2nd Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. This planet can bring in immense gains for the year because it also aspects the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna, which happens to be the Lagna itself in the Rashi Chakra. His own resources, effort and intelligence will bring the fruits in this business and for that reason it will be very rewarding. He should limit himself to this professional avenue for the year as anything else will be prone to extreme losses and expenses as seen from the Rashi Chakra. The other details can be had from the Dashamsha Chakra.
His mind is likely to be very troubled through the year since the Naisargika Karaka for psychology, the Moon, is placed in the 8th Bhava in Grahan Yoga with Ketu. The 8th Bhava is Marana Karaka Sthana placement for Moon and the only saving grace is that the Graha is placed in its own sign. The worst experiences of the emotional mind are avoided due to this. The Gajakesari Yoga persists this year as well but the fullest benefits do not come, just as in the preceding year. In the preceding year, Guru was in the 3rd Bhava in the Marana Karaka Sthana while this year it is debilitated in Guru Chandala Yoga with Rahu and also in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna.
The Dashamsha Chakra reveals that this year he can think of partnership as the same would be on a more equal footing. Independent enterprise would be rewarding. Writing and communication can be positive as Budh is exalted in the 7th Bhava from the Lagna. The 5th Lord Moon in the Lagna shows new beginnings. The foreign influence continues this year and this is intriguing as your family is already settled abroad. The Lagna Lord is debilitated and placed with Rahu in Guru Chandala Yoga. Debility in Varga Chakra related to finances and work is not bad and can bring new openings. This can specifically be in writing. Shani is also debilitated in the 2nd House but retrograde showing that this is a year of serious effort towards securing a more reliable future work profile.
Your husband will show a more independent streak in work due to Mangal placed in the 9th Bhava in the Arudha Lagna in the Dashamsha Chakra this year.
The Tithi Ashtottari Dashas for the year are given below:
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):
Ven: 2009-02-03 - 2009-04-12
Sun: 2009-04-12 - 2009-05-02
Moon: 2009-05-02 - 2009-06-20
Mars: 2009-06-20 - 2009-07-17
Merc: 2009-07-17 - 2009-09-10
Sat: 2009-09-10 - 2009-10-13
Jup: 2009-10-13 - 2009-12-14
Rah: 2009-12-14 - 2010-01-23
Ven: 2010-01-23 - 2010-04-01
The Shukra Mahadasha is the best for starting the year because it is the single best placed planet in the Rashi Chakra. It is exalted and placed in the 2nd from the Arudha Lagna: it will sustain and feed the external image in society and in financial and working life. It is also likely to bring valuable realisations regarding aesthetics and such other inputs which may prove to be important from the viewpoint of the business he is contemplating. The following Sun Tithi Ashtottari Dasha will bring sporadic work opportunity interspersed with short breaks as the 6th Lord Sun is in the 3rd Bhava in the Dashamsha Chakra. At the mainly physical level, the Graha is part of the cluster in the 12th from the Arudha Lagna so not much might be expected of it.
The Moon Tithi Ashtottari Dasha, though afflicted in the Rashi Chakra and likely to bring intense emotional experiences and some unrest, is well placed in the Dashamsha Chakra and could open fresh avenues in work as this planet is the 5th Lord placed in the Lagna. Mars Tithi Ashtottari Dasha which follows can be impressive if Your husband does not succumb to a burst of misplaced drive and aggression: Mars is exalted in the Rashi Chakra. In the work arena it can give independent thoughts of how to proceed. This period may also be one of the most important through the year as it will define the working image for the year.
Mercury Tithi Ashtottari Dasha will be excellent for communication and writing in the work sphere but it is yet again in the 12th from the Arudha Lagna in the Rashi Chakra, therefore investments in the stock market or in mutual funds is not recommended during this period. Independent work and meeting very suave potential partners in work could be a feature of this phase.
The Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of the Hora Lord Shani will be the most crucial period for the year and because it will first bring a sense of being locked in and not being able to bring out of the grip of circumstances due to its placement in the 9th Bhava from the Lagna, Your husband will try hard to open the Dwara/ doorway to the image and emerge in his own right. This will take serious effort and it will be in this period he will try and make this effort. Shani is debilitated in the 2nd House in the Dashamsha Chakra and shows motivational factors regarding the future of his work. He will strive out of concern for the future of his work, seen from the 2nd House from the Lagna because it happens to be the 5th House (future) from the 10th Bhava of Karma. Both Guru and Rahu Tithi Ashtottari Dashas that follow will try and continue the theme of effort as Guru is the Neecha Lagna Lord placed in the 11th Bhava of gains, income, opening up and extroversion: as indicated, planets in debility in the Dashamsha Chakra are as good as exalted ones.
The chart for the Hindu year for 2010 is cast for the following data: (data omitted for privacy reasons).
Even though one wishes fervently that easier Karmic patterns visit you and your family at the earliest, there is no getting around communicating the fact that testing times do not appear to be entirely over for Your husband. The Lagna rising for the year is Simha/ Leo which is the 12th Bhava from the natal Kanya Lagna. The 12th Bhava is considered a Dusthana/ evil Bhava and therefore, the year must be deemed to be less than favourable. The astonishing thing is that Shani is the Hora Lord for the third straight year in a row and this is a very surprising feature.
The Hora Lord is a functional malefic for Simha Lagna and is placed in the 2nd Bhava from the Lagna. The Lagna is in a Papa-Kartari Yoga formed by Shani in the 2nd Bhava and Mangal in the 12th Bhava. Your husband may feel trapped between the realities of dependant family and expenses. Shani in the 2nd Bhava cautions against bad speech and junk food. He must avoid stimulants through the year. The thing about Mangal for Simha Lagna is that it is a Yogakaraka planet and can give Rajayoga on its own without the help of any other Graha.
There is a specific rule about Yogakaraka planets. Mangal is Neecha in the 12th Bhava from the Lagna in Karka/ Cancer Rashi. This can give a powerful Rajayoga. The best thing is that it is not conjoined any other Graha else the significations of that conjoined planet would have been destroyed. This is not the case here. In its Tithi Ashtottari Dasha Mangal can give great material benefits despite the ordinary overall nature of the year for your husband.
The year shows marked improvement in health as the Vedic weekday on which the year commences is Guruvar/ Thursday. Guru is almost exalted in Kumbha Rashi and aspects the Lagna. It will protect the health. The Moon is again afflicted in the Rahu-Ketu axis but it is placed in the Arudha Lagna. He may tend to be slightly more sociable this year but must avoid mistakes as Ketu in the Arudha Lagna threatens the same.
Guru shows the most dominant source of gains as it aspects the 11th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna with Rashi Drishti. It does appear that Jupiter has been providing the saving grace through the preceding years and it would be advisable for Your husband to work with the opportunities relating to consultancy and writing apart from the avenues in hospitality which also appeared positive in the first annual horoscope that we worked with.
Once again the foreign angle and the unhindered flights of the mind appear dominant as Guru is in Parivartana/ exchange Yoga with Neecha Rahu in Dhanu Rashi in the 5th Bhava in the 7th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. Due to this exchange the spouse has a realistic chance of emerging into the world on his terms this year because Jupiter will aid this effort. This year learning, reading and broadening his horizons will be very important for him as the Lagna Lord showing applied intelligence is in the 6th Bhava of growth through effort and is conjoined the 3rd lord Shukra. This forms Dhimantah Yoga which is indicative of notable intelligence and this shall be visible through the year.
Despite the fact that the Lagna rising is in the 12th Bhava from the natal Lagna, this year would prove to be full of opportunity which is evident from a look at the Dashamsha Chakra. Ketu the 10th Lord is placed in the Lagna forming Simhasana Yoga: there is a real chance of attainment this year. Please have him perform the remedial measures by this stage fully and without exceptions.
Once again own work and independent enterprise appears to be the dominant work theme. It is very interesting that nowhere through this extensive study of three years has the 6th House of service in the Dashamsha Chakra been stronger than the 7th Bhava of partnership, business and independent work. There are three Grahas in the 7th Bhava including Mangal and Shani: this shows some prospects of working with real estate through the year and given the Rajayoga formed by the Yogakaraka Mangal, Neecha in the Rashi Chakra in the 12th House there is a strong chance of heavy financial gains through land and commercial property and dealing in such areas this year.
Venus is the Yogakaraka in the Dashamsha Chakra for the year and is exalted in the 2nd Bhava from the Lagna. Whatever he wants to accomplish in hotels, motels, aesthetics and hospitality will come easily and with success and these areas will motivate him strongly through the year. Given the great strength of Venus I would recommend pursuing all these avenues without fear. Now, this is a very fine look at the Karmic trends through the three years for the spouse and you must combine this with the findings in the radix and how the days unfold in the three years. This would require frequent reference to this paper from time to time and also to the Mahadasha dates given hereinabove and below as well.
The Tithi Ashtottari Dasha for the year is given below:
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):

Venus Mahadasha again triggers the Hindu year and since the Graha is joined the Lagna Lord in the 6th Bhava from the Lagna it shows heavy thinking and other characteristics of the Dhimantah Yoga. Crucially, in the Dashamsha Chakra, the planet is exalted in the 2nd Bhava from the Lagna and can show future guidance and plans taking shape especially in the domains ruled by the planet such as cultural settings and the hospitality sector. It is also the 10th Lord of the Rashi Chakra and is quite likely to give important events pertaining to professional matters in its Tithi Ashtottari Dasha. The next Dasha of the Sun, while good for intellectual pursuits will show a scarcity of resources in the realm of work as the planet is placed in Marana Karaka Sthana in the 12th Bhava in Dashamsha Chakra and since it is Karaka of that Varga Chakra, caution would be well advised in career matters during such a phase.
The Moon Tithi Ashtottari Dasha is much like the Sun in work related matters as the two are conjoined in the Dashamsha Chakra in the 12th Bhava. In the Rashi Chakra, of course, the Graha is placed in the Arudha Lagna but is joined Ketu and the social interaction is likely to be curtailed by the possibility of mistakes in action.
He can look forward to the next Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Mars as being one of the phases for the year since the Graha is Yogakaraka for the Lagna and is debilitated in the 12th House giving Rajayoga. Even in the Dashamsha Chakra, it is placed in the 7th House of own work and is likely to be a fine period to strive in the area of real estate etc.
The Budh Mahadasha can give new openings in the realm of career but is afflicted by Rahu in the 5th House in the Rashi Chakra, so lack of clarity should be guarded against. The Mahadasha of the Hora Lord can give painstaking advances in the career as it is joined the Rajyapada/ A10 in the Rashi Chakra but in the Dashamsha Chakra it is well-placed so the avenues opened by the Mangal Dasha can be continued during this phase.
Guru Mahadasha will support the external life as it is placed in the 9th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna but these effects will be felt more in the succeeding Rahu Mahadasha due to the exchange between the two Grahas. It is quite evident that the road is not completely clear for Your husband just yet and the benefits of the better phase shall take some time in registering as the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for the three years are fairly ordinary. Having said that, with the Sade-Sati abating, relief will be discernible and in order to maximize the positives, at the risk of repeating myself many times over, I must again remind you that the remedies must be performed.
The Hindu year for 2008 starts for you on (data omitted for reasons of privacy).
Just as with the Tithi Pravesha Chakra of the spouse, we must first evaluate whether the rising sign in the Lagna in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is well placed from the Lagna in the Rashi Chakra in the radix. The Lagna rising in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is Makar which is the 4th Bhava from your natal Tula Lagna. This promises an overall favourable year.
The Hora Lord is Venus and this planet is placed in the 7th Bhava with the Sun and Ketu. The 7th Bhava relates to marriage and shows a focus on marriage this year. Shukra is also the 5th and 10th Lord of the chart and also shows some developments in the expression of intelligence seen from the 5th Bhava and also skills in work seen from the lordship of the 10th Bhava.
This is a sensitive year for the marriage though as the 8th Bhava showing the source of the Mangalsutra is occupied by both Mangal and Shani. These planets also aspect the 2nd Bhava from the Upapada Lagna showing the issues facing the marriage. You must be aware of these facets and conduct yourself accordingly. These things are easier said than done but since you know the finer details about the annual experience based on the Tithi Pravesha Chakra in your husband’s horoscope, maybe this can turn out to be slightly easier.
The fact that Shukra lords the 2nd from the Upapada Lagna and is joined two malefics, the Sun and Ketu makes these issues notable. Of course we have already examined this factor from the natal chart so all that is needed is to minimize the disquiet that may result from trials and stresses in daily life.
I am stating this because even otherwise the 8th Lord Sun is in the 7th Bhava and the Naisargika Karaka for marriage is cursed. The 7th Lord showing the spouse is also joined Rahu and aspected by the Sun in the Lagna pointing at some emotional upheavals due to the experience in the marital realm.
Mangal and Shani in the 6th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna in the Rashi Chakra for the year promise excellent prospects and drive in the social, financial and material realm. You would be in the mood to ruthlessly overpower all challenges in work. Mangal and Shani in such a location bring Kshatriya attributes of fearlessness and there may be an element of fixity of purpose and ambition through the year.
These indications are also confirmed by the placement of Guru in Dhanu Rashi. However, this planet is retrograde and indicates three times Cheshta Bala or the desire to put in effort in order to succeed. The energy with such a planet is kingly in scope and you are likely to work tirelessly and with incredible energy towards your professional goals. Guru is the lord of the Arudha Lagna and placed in the 10th Bhava therefrom in Simhasana Yoga. Through sustained and directed effort you are likely to attain a position of prominence in work and the pressures that you may have been facing after the change you have made at your place of work is largely a product of the Kantak Shani operating. You have been advised Upaya to deal with the same and once you do that the Rashi Chakra this year is capable of delivering very good things in the career.
Recognition of merit will also not pose a problem though to attain this it will take some doing. The Mantra Pada/ A5 is placed in the 7th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna showing that this recognition will open the Dwara for you this year and the recognition of your working abilities will properly allow you to emerge as a professional in the new field. There is no Graha in the A5 but the lord Mercury is powerfully placed in Mithun Rashi showing computers and software writing and the A5 is aspected both by a strong Budh and a strong Guru, assuring good returns in this direction.
The Dashamsha Chakra likewise shows good things. The 6th Bhava is the house of service and has an exalted and Vakra Guru joined Venus therein. Guru is akin to debility and being the 2nd Lord shows that this year you would form the foundational framework for future growth. It does appear that you have made the perfect career move and if the progress is slow then it is only because of the Kantak Shani operating. Guru shows immense work load and effort and Shukra also makes it clear that a corporate environment and management strategies form the fulcrum of the work profile.
Consulter, the Dashamsha Chakra for the year is very conclusive because Shukra and Chandra are in Parivartana/ exchange in the Dashamsha Chakra showing the product (Moon) management (Shukra) will sow the seeds for independence in the work profile due to this choice being made. I say this because Chandra is placed in the 9th Bhava of independence and the boss. It could also mean very fortunate and career-furthering interaction with your superiors in work. The effects of Gajakesari Yoga resulting in fame and excellence in work shall also come about due to this.
Your other work with children etc is fully supported by the Karma shown in the Dashamsha Chakra as Guru is the Karaka for children and has a powerful Yoga with Shukra and Chandra. Guru is also the 11th Lord of gains and you can take it that all this facets will finally lead to financial gains as well. These gains are also supported by the Yoga between Shukra and Chandra which always leads to heavy money income and is very welcome in Varga Chakra that deal with Artha or matters of finance and material.
Rahu is the Lagna Lord and is powerfully placed in the 4th Bhava: it may lead to slightly erratic and long working hours but the same would be conducive to growth. This is also supported by the fact that Mangal is exalted and forms Guru-Mangal Yoga. The only think to check would be that if you feel something is not being done right do not compromise your position because it offends you. If it is possible for you to take a mellow view of the same, then do so as it will diffuse some aggressive interruptions in the excellent work situation for the year.
Tithi Ashtottari Dasha of Janma tithi (useful especially in Tithi Pravesha charts):
Sun: 2008-07-12 - 2008-08-02
Moon: 2008-08-02 - 2008-09-25
Mars: 2008-09-25 - 2008-10-23
Merc: 2008-10-23 - 2008-12-23
Sat: 2008-12-23 - 2009-01-28
Jup: 2009-01-28 - 2009-04-05
Rah: 2009-04-05 - 2009-05-18
Ven: 2009-05-18 - 2009-07-31
Sun: 2009-07-31 - 2009-08-21
The Sun is likely to be a malefic period because it is the 8th Lord placed in the 7th Bhava and may stress the marriage. The Moon Tithi Ashtottari Dasha though likely to persist with the emotional issues and maybe intensify them would be quite good for the career and you would be able to forge ahead. The independence and happy working relationship with the bosses and superiors would come about fairly early in the year. In fact, this Dasha could be said to be formative of the working image for the rest of the year.
The Mangal, Budh and Shani Dashas are all good for matters material and for professional growth. Especially the Mangal and Shani Dashas are very fruitful due to their good placement from the Arudha Lagna in the Rashi Chakra. They will help you in driving forward and forging ahead with your plans. However, the Mangal and Shani Dashas are adverse for marital matters as they are badly placed in the Mangalya Bhava showing a lot of domestic issues and tensions.
Guru Mahadasha in the Tithi Ashtottari Dasha scheme will be the best for the year as it is the lord of the Arudha Lagna placed in the 10th Bhava therefrom and it is also well-placed in the 6th Bhava from the Lagna in the Dashamsha Chakra showing very potent work and service profile for the year. The results attributed to the work and job in the preceding paragraphs will accrue in this Mahadasha of Guru.
Rahu Tithi Ashtottari Dasha is not good for the personal front as it will precipitate much of the anxiety and delusion that is likely to come in the Chandra Tithi Ashtottari Dasha referred to above but on the professional front apart from the erratic working hours it would be a good period as the Lagna Lord is placed in Vrishabh Rashi in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna.
The Venus Dasha would be that of the Hora Lord and would show the most important events for the year. You must be cautious regarding the experience from love and marriage while the working life shall continue to prosper due to the fortunate exchange between Shukra and Chandra: this appears to be a very positive and heartening year for the profession.
True Copy of the Hindu Year, cast for the following data (omitted for reasons of privacy).
This year, the Lagna rising is Tula/ Libra itself, showing a favourable year again. This is the same as the Lagna in the Rashi Chakra in the radix and shows positive forces emanating from the Hindu New Year. The Hora Lord is Guru who is the ruler or the king of the year and this planet is placed in debility in Makar Rashi: this detracts from the overall positive nature of the Hindu year. Further, the planet is in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna and joined Rahu in Guru Chandala Yoga. This really weakens the chart and the Hora Lord. Even otherwise, Guru is a functionally malefic Graha for Tula rising and this too takes away from the benefits of this rising sign for the year.
The Lagna Lord Shukra is placed in the 9th Bhava is a friendly Rashi In Mithun and this is a good Rajayoga of application of intelligence and decision making to benefit one’s own self in a Dharmic and well-considered way. Mangal just as the previous year is placed in the 8th Bhava stressing the marriage somewhat due to arguments and fights and it is also the 7th Lord of the Rashi Chakra in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra. Thus, the cautionary stroke struck in this direction for the past year must be continued to some extent through this year as well. The Guru Chandala Yoga and the presence of Moon with the combination can again lead to some serious emotional unrest and psychological difficulties especially as these Yogas occur in the Sukha Bhava of the chart showing meddling and interference with the happiness and sating factor. The Rashi Drishti of Budh and Mangal to the 7th Bhava of intimacy might make for an element of indifference and neglect in domestic harmony.
These indications are corroborated and confirmed by the mutually 6-8 position of the Arudha Lagna and the Upapada Lagna in the chart as too the affliction of the Upapada Lagna by the Yuti of Surya and Ketu while the 2nd Bhava from the Upapada Lagna shows the presence of Budh and Shani aspected by the terrible Guru Chandala Yoga. You must guard against coldness and absence of interest in the other facets of the marriage for the year as they can bring friction into life.
The Hora Lord is excellently placed in the Dashamsha Chakra in the Lagna showing independent growth in the profession and a lot of optimism and wisdom manifesting in official decisions taken by you. The 6th House of job and service is again stronger than the 7th Bhava of independent enterprise as Budh the Karaka for computers and software is placed there. It specifically indicates software writing and codes. In Vrishchik/ Scorpio you would do well to involve yourself with research aspects of work or those that involve depth and study; of course one is not advocating a return to development but you would probably know how best to apply this information to your work.
Budh is also the Lagna Lord for the Dashamsha Chakra in this Tithi Pravesha Chakra and shows complete immersion of the self in work. It is also the 4th Lord and working hours would depend on you and how you chose to pace yourself. The 5th Lord Venus is placed in the 5th Bhava with Rahu, the 9th Lord and these are excellent indications for exploring fresh avenues and new frontiers in work. The debility of Shani is also good for finances in the 11th Bhava from the Lagna.

Sun: 2009-07-31 - 2009-08-20

The Sun Tithi Ashtottari Dasha is positive for accentuating the skill structure in overall work and also for an intellectually fuelled drive to participate through the year.
Moon Mahadasha is bad for the mind and emotional peace due to its involvement with Guru Chandala Yoga in the 4th House and due to its gross affliction in the Rahu-Ketu axis. In the Dashamsha Chakra it brings fulfillment of desires only after a detached submission to work.
Mangal Mahadasha stresses personal relations and marriage and due to these issues you may have to take a short break from work or even disassociated from the personal front, work may register a minor hiatus through the operation of this Mahadasha. All of Budh, Shani and Guru Dashas are positive for work and though Guru is the Hora Lord, I must say that at the physical level of the Rashi Chakra this year, its bad affliction in the 12th Bhava from the Arudha Lagna shows a very stressful time. Do be careful regarding children and expenses and the consequent loss to mental peace as this happens in the Sukha Bhava.
Both Rahu and Venus Tithi Ashtottari Dasha are unambiguously positive for the work but the Rahu Mahadasha will be poor for happiness due to the formation of the Guru Chandala Yoga.
True Copy of the Tithi Pravesha Chakra cast for the following data: (omitted for reasons of privacy).
The Lagna rising in the Rashi Chakra for the Tithi Pravesha Chakra is again Tula/ Libra showing that the intent of the Hindu year as an entity is to favour and can be considered positive. The rest shall depend on the Hora Lord and the individual Graha placements for the year in the horoscope. The Hora Lord Shani is the Yogakaraka for Tula Lagna and as this Yoga happened with another Graha for one of the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for Your husband, so too the Yogakaraka Hora Lord Shani is placed in the 12th Bhava of the chart giving a profound Rajayoga.
There is a rule that a malefic Yogakaraka gives Rajayoga in the 12th Bhava from the Lagna or another Dusthana/ evil Bhava therefrom. The bad thing is that Mangal is joined this planet and the natural significations of this latter planet are stressed in some way; the Naisargika Karakattwa of Mangal is siblings. If I recall correctly I have spoken to one of your brothers over the phone. So the sibling (s) ought to be careful in matters that could be identified based on their own charts. The Lagna Lord Shukra is well placed with the 9th Lord Budh in the 11th Bhava of fulfillment of desires. This is also a straight forward Rajayoga as a Kendra lord is joined a Trikona lord: this also goes by the name of Lakshmi-Narayan Yoga and shows a fortunate union of effort shown by Kendra lordship and divine blessings shown by the 9th Bhava lordship of Budh. However, the theme of aggression that had been running in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra for the past two years is absent in this final year of analysis. In fact this shows itself to be a year of changes and inner transformation as the two benefic planets Shukra and Budh are joined the A8/ Ashtama Pada in the 3rd Bhava from the Arudha Lagna. The transformation will not be severe in nature but will accompany a gentle manifestation is society rather than the undiluted ambition and drive that your charts usually exhibit. Ketu debilitated in the Arudha Lagna also shows an introverted and spiritual or reflective image through the year in the eyes of those who know you: you yourself, friends, family and acquaintances.
Despite the gentleness, the very Grahas causing inner transformation also show themselves to be the main sources of gains. Budh shows software and those connected with computers while Shukra show the private sector.
This is a much better year for the marriage and there is focus on the relationship and romance shown by Shukra in the 7th Bhava in the Navamsha Chakra. In the Rashi Chakra, the Upapada Lagna is well fortified and the 2nd Bhava from the Arudha Lagna is occupied by great benefics sealing the marital bond strongly. Hardware and mathematics and computation become string factors in the Dashamsha Chakra shown by the placement of Ketu in the 6th Bhava of job and service reckoned from the Lagna. This is the 3rd straight year in which the 6th Bhava of service is stronger than the 7th Bhava of independent practice and business.
Contractual nature of work is indicated or work spaced by short breaks as the 6th co-lord Mars is placed with the Sun in the Lagna. Venus gives a fresh line of work and a new break in the best possible way since it is the 5th Lord exalted in the 10th Bhava of attainment, growth and excellence in work. Maybe product management will yield its richest harvest through the year or it would be the positive influence of Venus in some way.
The exaltation of Budh in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna shows excellent working hours to your liking where optimum output accrues. Health would be good through the year as the Vara lord Moon has Digbal in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna in the Rashi Chakra in the Tithi Pravesha Chakra. Both the 6th and 8th Lords are also well-placed. In the 2009 Tithi Pravesha Chakra you need to take special care of your health as the Vara Lord Guru is badly afflicted in the 4th Bhava in Guru Chandala Yoga. It is also the 6th Lord and so sugar, weight, calm evaluation of the trials all need to be watched due to the affliction of Guru. The chest region and the mind are vulnerable areas for manifestation of illness for that year. In 2008 gynecological issues are likely to manifest as there is a blemish in the year caused by Shukra being the Vara lord and the Hora Lord and afflicted in the 7th Bhava of the privates.

The Sun Tithi Ashtottari Dasha will heighten the skill structure in work just as the previous year because the Graha has Digbala in the 10th Bhava from the Lagna. Do not take any drastic professional decisions in the Chandra Mahadasha as the Graha is placed in Marana Karaka Sthana in the 8th Bhava in the Dashamsha Chakra relating to the career. Mangal can bring some short breaks in the career and will be an unusual period. Either the challenges relating to the siblings will come in this period or in Shani Dasha. I would think they would come in the Shani Dasha but the same remains to be seen. Budh Mahadasha is likely to give excellent results and be creative of the working image through the year which would be of a very talented software profession due to the exaltation of Budh in the 4th Bhava from the Lagna in the Dashamsha Chakra. Despite the gentle manifestation of the personality, it would contribute to the gains in the Rashi Chakra as well.
Shani Dasha would be that of the Hora lord and would give the most conspicuous events for the year. The Rajayoga promised will either come in this Dasha or in the preceding Mangal Tithi Ashtottari Dasha. I would predict Rajayoga in the preceding Mangal Tithi Ashtottari Dasha.
Jupiter is likely to be an excellent overall period both at the overall physical level and also at the working level.
Venus Tithi Ashtottari Dasha ending the year can rid the times of some of the confusion fostered by the Rahu Mahadasha and the Shukra Dasha appears to be very promising for the career despite the gentle mannerisms created due to the 3rd Bhava placement from the Arudha Lagna.
It does seem that I was distracted enough to completely ignore the size and nature of this consultancy. You can see the sheer size of the Report. I do not know what I was thinking at the time you commissioned it. In any case, having once begun I could not have compromised on the task and have gone through with this rather massive task.
I trust this will afford a reliable blueprint for the coming years for both you and your husband and give you a realistic impression of what is to come Karmically from year to year. Both the challenges and positives have been sought to be communicated with diligence and frankness.
