The most difficult of the classics in Vedic Astrology is the Upadesha Sutra of Maharsi Jaimini. Needless to say there are many scholars who have studied this when they reach that level where they have a fairly good mastery over the standard texts and have digested Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra to a decent level of competence. A competence that allows their minds to move through the sutra like thread in a needle stitching the various sutras into a fine cosmic diagram.

There is an endless debate on the house position of Jupiter as making the bhāva strong or weak. Recently an astrologer of Delhi stated a generic absurd dictum that “Jupiter and benefics weaken the house they occupy while malefics strengthen the house they occupy”.

Annular Solar Eclipse of May 31, 2003
Although the Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon, yet it is also about 400 times as far from the Earth than the Moon. This situation causes the two luminaries (Sun and Moon) to appear as about the same size in the sky. When the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, it casts a shadow. If this shadow falls on the earth, it causes an eclipse. The Moon passes between the Sun and Earth every month, yet it does not cause an eclipse to occur every month.

Kārakāṁśa
One of the important principles of our tradition is to treat the Kārakāṁśa as Aries and examine the planets in the houses from it. Reason being that the ātmakāraka is akin to the jīvātmā (or jaḍātmā in the case of inanimate beings) which is similar to the Paramātma in its basic nature but lacks the purity and energy of the latter. In a sense, the creature is like the creator, in almost every respect. The ātmā is a spark of light symbolized by agni tattva and the Sun as the naisargika ātmakāraka.

This is an introduction to the eight-sign zodiac called Kālachakra.
1      Introduction
Aṣṭadala Padma (Eight petal lotus) is the foundation of Hindu philosophy. It is based on the Kālachakra (wheel of time), which is composed of eight spokes and has the 28 constellations distributed in these spokes. Each of these spokes is in one of the cardinal or intermediate directions and is reckoned starting from the east and moving in the clockwise direction.

Introduction- The houses

Before venturing into the study of the finances of a nation we should be clear about the indications of the houses in the chart.

There are two methods to draw a Trimsamsa (D30) Chart. We discuss the method of Parashara.

What is the Trimsamsa, and how to draw a Trimsamsa Chart?
Trimsamsa means the one-thirtieth portion of a sign measuring one degree. Unlike other divisions, the Sun and Moon are not the Lords of any trimsamsa and the Nodes (Rahu & Ketu) also do not owm any trimsamsa. Thus the remaining five of Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn own the trimsamsa.
