There can be nothing more fearful than the 8th house which is called Randhra bhava in Jyotisa. The lord of the 8th house represents that which we astrologers call “the hand of destiny,” in a most negative sense. While many studies have been made about this house and its lord, here we are examining the effect of Rahu on the 8th house. Normally most astrologers assume that the conjunction of two malefic factors – the most malefic bhava (i.e. 8th house) and the most malefic planet in Jyotisa (i.e.

Maṅgalika doṣa is a flaw of the energy processing system in the native. Mars (maṅgala) represents agni tattva and when this is flawed, the energy gets directed to wrong purposes and the result is terrible waste of both resources and time in addition to much suffering and pain.

It is interesting to note that the ancient seers did not attribute so much flaw to the placement of other planets including Saturn as has been placed on the placement of Mars.

Āruḍha Pada
Āruḍha literally means mount and refers to the illusion (Maya) created by the reflection of a sign about its lord or vice versa (i.e. the image of the lord reflected by its sign). The first is called Rāśi Āruḍha or simply Bhāva Pada while the latter is called Graha Āruḍha. Not going into the details of usage, we shall touch on its calculation. The most important point to note is what I call the satya principle.

Argalā
Argalā means planetary/sign intervention. I consider this the single greatest teaching of Maharishi Parāśara without which we cannot explain the hidden or subtle influence of a planet in the chart. The magnificent theory of Argalā stipulates the following: –

(a) Every planet has the power to influence the affairs of every other planet or house.

Thus for example, even if a planet has nothing to do with the second house by way of ownership, aspect, conjunction etc, it does not mean that the person shall stop eating food during the daśā of the said planet.

Tattva
There are five principal elements or states of existence of all material bodies called TATTVA. These are (1) the Solid state called Pṛthvi or Earth, (2) the Liquid state called Jala or Water, the Gaseous state called Vāyu, the Vacuum state called Ākāśa or the Energy state called Agni. Each sign is assigned one of the four principle elements of Agni (loosely called Fire), Vāyu (loosely called Air), Pṛthvi (loosely called Earth), and Jala (loosely called Water).

Have you ever wondered why the order of the weekdays is ‘Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wedneday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday? The clue lies in Hora. It is the basis for determining the order of the weekdays.

List the planets on the basis of their average speeds or in the order of their dwipa (ellipsoidal orbits around the earth in the Bhu-Mandala). If we consider a heliocentric system then the speed of the Moon would be the highest followed by the order of the planets in their distance from the Sun i.e. Moon, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

Brahma has four heads from which He spoke the four vedas – the Rig Veda, Yaju Veda, Sama Veda and Atharva Veda. When the three guna (Satva, Rajas and Tamas) manifest, they do so in a combination such that either one of the three predominates or they are in a confused proportion where neither predominates.

“Sama-Saptaka” means mutual seventh and refers to the placement of two ‘otherwise friendly planets’ in mutual one-seventh houses from each other. The placement of two diremalefics in such places is not considered ’sama-saptaka’.

Graha Ārudha (required for some charts)
