Power in the Vedic horoscope-
From the Vedic astrology horoscope, just like all other things in life, proclivities to great power, and sometimes unanticipated power, can be seen.
The Rāśi Chakra is extracted below for immediate reference.
Just at first glance we can see that it is not an ordinary horoscope. Exalted Sun (Surya) is in the Lagna in Aries (Mesha). Sun indicates royalty and political power and authority.
Nature of the power-
The individual was amongst the highest ranking government functionaries in one of the States in India. The Sun is the 5th Lord of power and he was known to be extremely close to several executive heads of State in succession.
There is Parivartana Yoga between the Sun and Mars as Sūrya is in a Rāśi lorded by Mangala and Maṅgala is in a sign ruled by the Sun.
Mars is the lord of the Ascendant and in exchange with the 5th Lord produces a Rajayoga of great magnitude.
When we see the Charakarakas in this horoscope we find that Mars is the Ātmakāraka and the Sun is his Minister, the Amātyakāraka and a huge Rājayoga is formed even in this manner by the exchange. When the Ātmakāraka promises something, it cannot be thwarted and if it is promising unbridled power then so it shall be.
The entire bureaucratic machinery was under direct orders from the native of this horoscope, for a long time and despite all sorts of machinations, he could not be dislodged from his high perch.
In this horoscope the phenomenon of Lopa or the disappearance of the Charakāraka is happening as Mars and Sun are exactly at the same degrees of longitude of arc traversed and the difference is not even in the minutes but in the seconds of arc! Even so, the original Ātmakāraka Mars being the Agrakāraka or the planet which is ahead, shall be replaced by the Sun as the Aṅtyakāraka and the slot of the Amātyakāraka shall fall vacant.
When the Ātmakāraka is replaced, the entire life of the person changes, and the very hue of the soul that characterises him, undergoes a change. While Mars shows a military bearing, the Sun is pure power and the desire to rule as a matter of right.
The nature of work-
Ordinarily Jupiter is the fixed Amātyakāraka and would show advisory work when the change occurs but if we look closely there is another Parivartana Yoga between Jupiter in Aquarius and Rahu in Pisces.
The work indicated by Jupiter is actually going to come from Rahu, which it did. He was catapulted into close proximity with the political powers of the day. The political powers came and went but he survived with each regime and while his power oscillated slightly he was always extremely significant in matters of governance.
The Gurū Chānḍāla Yoga effect is definitely formed owing to the tenuous exchange between the completely opposing tendencies of Jupiter and Rahu. When the heads of State tumbled, the native was seized with massive anxiety as to his own prospects.
Manifest Power in Life-
As I often write, houses from the Ascendant show the potential of things to manifest but not the manifestation itself. The Bhāvas from the Lagna contain the metaphysics of the Karma. What will happen in the world of Maya can only be gauged from the ĀrūḍhaLagna.
As the Lagneśa Mars is in the Pañcama Bhāva from the Lagna, the Ārūḍha Lagna is in the 9th House from the Lagna in Sagittarius. We see exalted Sun in the 5th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna showing that the native will find the peak of executive power. Mars and Saturn in the 9th from the Ārūḍha Lagna protect the image with ferocity and great reserves of power and the possibility of punishment in the event of things being amiss or going awry.
A very powerful Vahana Yoga is formed by the conjunction of Venus and the Moon in the 4th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna. Every luxury and enjoyment was available to the native. Both the Moon and Venus have 100% directional strength in the 4th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna. He was a leader of men and a very powerful personality shown by this Yoga. The Yoga is sullied by the presence of Rahu and that too in a sign of Jupiter giving rise to rumours and so on. The exchange with Jupiter does not help this.
Well, the Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh Away-
The problem with Jupiter is also that it is in the 3rd Bhāva from the Ārūḍha Lagna. The 3rd Bhava from the Ārūḍha Lagna indicates the manner and place of demise as it is the 8th from the 8th House.
Jupiter is debilitated in the Navāmśa Chakra and is in exchange with Rahu. Where Jupiter is expansion, Rahu is uncontrolled expansion. The native was suddenly afflicted by a major incurable illness and died in a matter of months.
Badhaka and Badhakesha-
For the Cara Lagna in Meṣa Rāśi, both Śani and Rāhu are Bādhakeśa and the Kumbha Rāśi is the Bādhaka Sthāna.
The Bādhekeśa causes severe afflictions. Firstly, the lord of the Ārūḍha Lagna is in the 3rd from the Ārūḍha Lagna in the Bādhaka Rāśi from the Lagna showing a terrible self-undoing. Śani aspects the 11th House which is again not good. Śani as the Bādhakeśa is with a dire malefic in Mars. The Bādhakeśa is a first-rate killer and the combination of Rāhu and Saturn worked their effect on the 3rd from the Ārūḍha Lagna which is also the Bādhaka Rāśi.
We also cannot ignore the impact on the progeny as the 5th House is badly afflicted and the problems pertaining to Jupiter the Naisargika Kāraka for children have already been pointed out. The Putrkāraka Śukra is in the 8th from the Ātmakāraka Mangala.
We can therefore see that almost exclusively from the Rāśi Chakra we can decipher the entire life of an individual, and that too one who rose very high in his career in terms of power and status.
Of course, with the divisional charts all the minutiae and the specific details in every realm of life can be accurately identified.
In this horoscope, the birth data is being kept back but the planetary placements are given below for reference.
Pisces Ascendant rises and the Lagnesha Guru is in the 9th House in Scorpio Rashi.
The 11th House has exalted Mars and Rahu in Capricorn. The 7th House is populated with an exalted Mercury, the Sun and debilitated Venus.
Saturn is in Taurus in the 3rd House from the Lagna, the Moon is in the 12th in Aquarius and Ketu is in the 5th in Cancer.
The native hails from an ordinary background but had high ambitions with Lagneśa in the Bhāgya Sthāna. The ambitions may have extended to the global stage.
The drive can also be seen from the special intervention caused by Śani in the 3rd Bhāva from the Lagna through the Viśeṣa Argalā. Two dire malefics in the 11th House cause Lābha Argalā but the gains are likely to be through questionable means when they are brought by malefics.
Land and Immovable Property-
Exalted Mars indeed gave dubious dealings in land which led to a police complaint being filed against the individual. Rāhu is the 12th Lord in war with Mars in the 11th House and the complaint cited cheating against the individual which is a signification of Rāhu.
Badhaka and Badhakesha-
The main problem though lies elsewhere. Exalted Mercury in the 7th House may give great business but actually it is in Maraṇa Kāraka Sthāna and can give death-like suffering. What appears to be abundance and riches is actually less than proper transactions as Mercury is akin to Rāhu, being the Bādhakeśa. It is causing tremendous obstruction being exalted in its own house.
Mercury being the 7th Lord also indicates the spouse who apparently did not notice anything amiss when the riches were being piled up with vehicles (Mercury is also the 4th Lord of vehicles) and houses (4th House is also home) and attributed it to business. According to her, every vehicle and property was seized one by one showing the work of the Bādhakeśa in Bādhaka Sthāna.
Venus is also debilitated in the 7th House as a functional malefic being the 3rd and 8th Lord for Pisces Lagna and afflicts the Bādhakeśa Mercury. With marriage these activities may have spiralled out of control.
The Sun is the 6th Lord and further afflicts the 7th House of marriage and business very badly and all these planets in the Bādhaka Sthāna worked to the great detriment of the native.
When Saturn aspects the 11th House it wants the native to adhere to orthodoxy and tradition and if this does not happen then Saturn becomes adverse. Here Saturn aspects the malefics in the 11th House with sign aspect making this a permanent requirement in life. This aspect has also gone missing in the life of the individual and he would be required to adhere to his faith and religion strictly.
Rahu aspects the 7th House with Graha Dṛṣṭi or planetary aspect and further poisons the situation in the 7th House.
Ultimately the native was arrested. It may be that a lawyer friend may have tried to help him with exalted Mars in the 11th House but Rahu did not permit this to happen as the native did not have the wherewithal to put essential processes into motion. It also may be that the attitude to camaraderie exhibited by the native may have suffered due to the influence of Rahu on the house of friends. Rahu as the dispositor of the 5th Lord Moon spoils the future of friendships and the future generally.
The Ārūḍha Lagna is in the 5th House from Lagna with Ketu in Cancer. The Moon appears to be in the 8th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna but is not. It is in the 6th as the counting is reversed by Ketu. Ketu is aspected by Saturn with both Graha Driṣṭi and Rāśi Dṛṣti and it is doubtful if Ketu continued to be spiritual in the Ārūḍha Lagna with this influence. It causes Jara Yoga and the native may exhibit false religiosity with this. Ketu bereft of spirituality is a first rate malefic in the material world and indicates a very poor image, including a criminal image.
Gains from the Ārūḍha Lagna-
Owing to the reversal the three planets in the Badhaka Sthana in the 7th House from the Lagna are in the 11th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna indicating huge gains. We have seen that these gains have not always been through the proper channels and have sent the native to jail.
Dwara or the door-
The native thought that he had to break down the doors with the Mars-Rahu combination to emerge properly into the world, little realising that this would become his image in the world and he would have to fight Ketu (criminality and arrest) to come out of this Karmic trap.
Change in the Image-
What will happen now is that the image will change to Jupiter and the native will continue to strive with Mars and Rahu in the 3rd House from Jupiter. Jupiter may well be the purpose of the birth of the native. But then the 7th House continues to be the 11th House from Jupiter and the dangers persist. Now, Saturn, the planet of tradition and orthodoxy is in the doorway from Jupiter and will require strict compliance especially since it is retrograde.
Before his arrest, the native stated that he saw the folly of his ways and had turned spiritual. This shows the move to Jupiter in the Ārūḍha Lagna.

Mercury is in direct motion in Virgo-
Mercury has now turned direct in Virgo in Vedic astrology transits, and is therefore now simply exalted. Earlier in retrogression, it was giving the results of Pisces which is the sign of its debilitation. I discussed some of these facets in this article- http://planetarytransformation.blogspot.in/2015/09/exaltation-of-planet-mercury-in-virgo.html. This paper discusses the exaltation of Mercury in Virgo, which is the situation obtaining at the present time.
The effects of Mercury retrograde, as it was at the time, in Virgo and approximating to placement in Pisces are discussed in my article at this link- http://planetarytransformation.blogspot.in/2015/09/mercury-retrograde-in-virgo-on.html.
What’s new with Mercury direct-
As Mercury turned direct, we embarked on an exercise of interpreting two Vedic horoscopes and dispatched the findings to our consulters, readers and subscribers through our Newsletter.
Our Vedic astrology Newsletter periodically communicates esoteric content at an advanced level to those who are on the list, and this content is usually not available for reading on this website.

Synopsis of the contents of the Newsletter-
In this edition of the Vedic astrology Newsletter, we explore the theme, through practical real-life examples, as to how the contemporary person and understand and transform their lives, avoid the pitfalls and heighten the positives through the higher echelons of Vedic astrology.
In the first example, we survey combinations and Yogas which define the personality and the moment, holding sway over the thought-processes and guiding the intelligence of the individual through placement in the Lagna or the Ascendant.
We get into the peculiarities of planets as lords of houses and how their dignity and strength or weakness can dictate the course of life through events which can be seen readily through the systems of Vedic astrology.
The importance of the Moon is in clear evidence here in this Vedic horoscope as is that of the Arudha Lagna, the image of the person in the world. We see how planets can make a person change his jobs time and again and how the image of the person as seen in the Rashi chart, dominate the choice of career at a given point in time.
The area of marriage is yet another pillar in the life of a person and this is also studied in the example horoscope. We evaluate the inherent strength of the marriage and the factors which might lead to its cessation. The crux principles are brought into sharp relief so that the readers may clearly discern the fabric of Karma laid down by the combinations and placements in the horoscope.
In the second example horoscope also we examine the life and times of an individual whose tenor of life experience underwent a major change owing to a Vipareeta Raja Yoga. This combination is the source of much curiosity and we have made some essentials quite clear through the scrutiny of the Yoga in this horoscope. Typically, this Yoga is not founded in consistency and longevity and is short-lived. While in this chart, the Yoga transcends itself to attain considerable length, since it is an unexpected success which has come, we have to always keep our investigations open to the possibility of a weak link, especially when the Yoga is required to be strong.
In this horoscope, the transit of Saturn in Scorpio is important and has been analysed. My other papers on the subject may be read here-
In this horoscope, as in the previous one, we again survey marriage. The marriage involves the Badhakesha or the obstructing agent for the horoscope which often introduces the foreign element into marriage (this is slightly different from the usual situation where each spouse visualises the other as some sort of alien or foreigner in any case). The challenges brought about by the transit and placement of Saturn, the Rajayoga which has already manifested and future prospects are all discussed here.
All previous issues of the Vedic astrology newsletter, including the one discussed above in the preceding paragraphs may be read here- http://us8.campaign-archive2.com/home/?u=2a35fd1592b50f218c342eba7&id=ea5dc9a013
Apart from Mercury, it is important to note that Venus and Jupiter are both moving in direct motion in Leo. They are joined Mars. It at once forms the Guru-Mangala Yoga and triggers Venus into action. There are major reserves of pragmatic and esoteric knowledge both and certain people will give forceful expression to these. Mercury and Sun are together in Virgo and are joined Rahu and there is a great deal of focus on the actual work that you do.
I have already discussed the stressful alliance caused by the mutual planetary aspect between Mars and Saturn, which can be accessed by visiting the following link here- http://planetarytransformation.blogspot.in/2015/09/implications-of-current-transits-of.html
