Interpretation #1: śukra+āt gauṇa pada+astho rāhuḥ sūrya dṛṣṭo netra+hā
Translation: “Further, Shukra associating the Gauna-Pada with Rahu and Surya aspects causes damage to the eye [sight]”

The dictum that affliction to the fifth house from Venus leads to Netra Roga from BPHS is based on a totally different yoga called Acchadana Drsti of Graha. There is just no need to extend this to the ninth house nor to trines from Lagna.

Chart1Gemini Lagna with (1) Venus as Lord of 12th house

(2) Upapada UL is in Pisces conjoined Sun and aspected by Rahu by graha drsti

Since the problem was caused by a Graha Drsti, the eyesight improved with the help of medical intervention. Benefic Jupiter in Upapada also made a big difference, especially in Pisces

Shukra Acchadana: If we examine the fifth house from Venus is Leo, it has only the aspect of Rahu (graha drsti). But when we examine the Rashi drsti, we find the aspect of a debilitated Saturn from Aries and Mars from Libra is on Leo. It is wrong to stretch the rule to 9th house from Venus or trines to Lagna. There is no need for that as we can see that the fifth from Venus is quite afflicted. However, Leo has the conjunction of the Moon and its lord Sun conjoins Jupiter in Pisces promising recovery.

Of course there is one tiny point to consider – Pisces Lagna does have the Janma Dosha of the Sun which rules eyesight.

Chart2Gemini Lagna with Sun and Rahu in the 12th house in Taurus as the 12th Lord Venus is in Lagna. Note that all three factors of Venus, Rahu and Sun associate with the 12th house. Check the Upapada in Cancer. This has the rashi drsti of Rahu and Sun.

Shukra Acchadana: The fifth from Venus in Gemini is Libra which is vacant. However it has the rashi drsti of Rahu and Sun.

Of course there is one tiny point to consider – Gemini Lagna does have the Janma Dosha of the Venus which rules eyes.

Chart3The twelfth Lords are Saturn and Rahu. ULSat is in Taurus owned and aspected (rashi drsti) by Venus and Rahu from Libra.

ULRahu is in Gemini aspected by Sun. Fortunately Jupiter conjoins Gemini but its Lord Mercury has also gone to 12th house and is afflicted by Mars.

Shukra Acchadana: The fifth house from Venus is Taurus which is afflicted both by Saturn in it and rashi drsti of Rahu from the eighth house of chronic diseases.

The graha drsti of Mars on Taurus is only going to add fuel to the problems already there without much mitigation.

We do not see any reason to examine the 9th bhava from Venus or trines to Lagna for eyesight.

Of course there is one tiny point to consider – Pisces Lagna does have the Janma Dosha of the Sun which rules eyesight.

Chart 4: Page 104, COVA by Sri Sanjay Rath.
Chart4Lagna is Pisces with the 12th lord Rahu in it aspected by Sun and Venus from Gemini (rashi drsti. This is sufficient but we need to examine other conditions.

The twelfth Lords are Saturn and Rahu. ULSat is in Taurus with Lord Venus conjoining Sun in zero digbala. But an exalted Moon with Mercury does provide relief.

ULRahu is in Aries conjoined a debilitated Saturn and its lord Mars is also in debility. The aspect of Jupiter is expected to provide relief.

Shukra Acchadana: The fifth sign from Venus is Libra owned by Venus conjoining the Sun but the affliction by the joint aspect of debilitated Saturn and debilitated Mars is quite terrible. This graha drsti will cause damage to the eyesight in time.

Of course there is one tiny point to consider – Pisces Lagna does have the Janma Dosha of the Sun which rules eyesight.

Chart5Leo Lagna with Ketu; 12th Lord Moon is exalted in Taurus with Upapada in Pisces conjoined Sun and aspected by Saturn and Rahu (graha drsti). This is a kind of Pitris dosha. Rahu also afflicts Venus.

Both Rahu and Venus have rashi drsti on Cancer, the 12th house

Shukra Acchadana: The fifth sign from Venus is Gemini and its lord Mercury is debilitated and afflicted by Sun and Saturn. Saturn also afflicts Gemini along with Rahu drsti. Debility of the fifth lord from Venus is really unfortunate in any chart.

While prima facie it may not show any Janma dosha, we can consider Ketu as a co-lord of Pisces (mulatrikona of Ketu is Pisces). Then there is parivartana between Sun in Pisces and Ketu in Leo. But thats another issue altogether.

Chart 6: Page 105, COVA by Sri Sanjay
Chart6Virgo Lagna with 12th house Leo; Prima facie it may seem that the 12th lord Sun placed in its own sign is good but we must bear in mind that this is the marana karaka sthana of the Sun. Further the Sun is also afflicted by Rahu

Upapada is in Taurus with Venus as its lord conjoined a debilitated Mars. Taurus also has the graha drsti of Rahu and Saturn. The rasi drsti of Moon conjoined Ketu (eclipse kind of yoga) is only adding further fuel to the fire. The benign rasi drsti of Jupiter and Mercury on Taurus are good.

Shukra Acchadana: The fifth sign from Venus is Scorpio and once again we have the unfortunate combination of the fifth lord Mars in debility. The co-lord of Scorpio is Ketu and it is not in any better place in battle with the Moon.

The rashi drsti of Rahu and Mars on Scorpio does show the problems related to eyes. To what extent can an exalted Jupiter cause the cancellation of debility of Mars, especially when influenced by Mrcury, the terrible enemy of Mars.

Chart 7: Page 106, COVA by Sri Sanjay Rath

Chart7This is a straight copybook case – Sagittarius Lagna with Rahu debilitated in 12th house starts the evil rolling.

Upapada is in Leo conjoined Sun and Venus to complete the Netraha Yoga. That Moon in UL is not really going to help as it is 8th lord of chronic diseases and is also too weak, without light to behave like a benefic.

Shukra Acchadana: The fifth sign from Venus is Sagittarius which is afflicted by the graha drsti of Rahu and Mars. Mars would not have been so malefic except for the fact that is conjoins a debilitated Ketu. Mars also aspects the UL in Leo and Venus.

These are some interesting cases. Readers will appreciate the clear lines and do’s and don’ts in case study.
