The Sun in the Twelfth House

If the Sun is in the 12th house, the native will suffer from appendicitis in the 36th year of his life. He will waste his money on undesirable purposes, he will be sinful and will incur loss of wealth. He will be accused of killing a cow and will live away from his native land. If the Sun is associated with strong and auspicious planet or planets the native will enjoy blessings of God. He will also enjoy bed comforts (sexual pleasures). If the Sun is in conjunction with malefics the native will incur wasteful expenditure and will be deprived of bed comforts. If the Sun is associated with the lord of the sixth house the native will suffer from leprosy but he will recover from this disease if a benefic aspects the Sun. The presence of the Sun in the 12th also will make the native sinful and there will be aggravation of the diseases he suffers from.

Comments-The 12th is a house of loss in all respects. It. Is also a dusthana. The important significations of this house may be seen in Part I-Chapter II. When the 12th house is occupied by a malefic planet, the significations of the house play their full role. The Sun in the 12th will give only unfavourable results described above. The results will not be so unfavourable if there is a benefic planet in the 12th but whether the planet is a benefic or a malefic, the significations of the house he owns will also suffer badly. If, however, The Sun be in his own sign Leo in the 12th, the results will be good and beneficial to the native. This disposition will give rise to 'Vipreet Rajayoga'.

Other Views
Brihat Jatak-The person will suffer degradation.
Phaldeepika-The native will be inimical towards his father. He will suffer from eye troubles. He will be without wealth and childless.
Saravali-The native will have a lean body. He will be one eyed, sinful, childless, inimical to his father, powerless and mean.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will suffer from eye troubles. He will be victorious in the battlefield. He will live at only one place to earn his livelihood. He will gain wealth during journeys.

Note-All the authorities except Chamatkar Chintamani agree with the views of Bhrigu Sutras that inauspicious results follow from the placement of the Sun in 12th house according to significations of this house. They have not given the effects of the benefic influences on the Sun, as described in Bhrigu Sutras.

The Sun in the Eleventh House

If the Sun is in the eleventh house the native will have substantial income from agricultural operations. In his 25th year he will acquire conveyances. By the use of his wealth and diplomatic talk, he will be able to acquire more wealth. He will suffer from a serious kind of fever and will have cordial relations with his employees. If the Sun is with a malefic he will incur lot of expenditure and will be without any conveyance. If the Sun is in his own sign or is exalted, he will have immense wealth. If the Sun is in conjunction with the lord of the 4th house, he will have sources of income at many places and will acquire conveyances and
will be very fortunate.

Comments- 11th is an upachaya house and is very auspicious and beneficial for almost all planets unless they are lords of bad houses or there is malefic influence on them. The Sun in the 11th according to Sutra 96 gives substantial income from agricultural operations. The native also acquires conveyances and is able to gain wealth by talking in a diplomatic manner according to Sutra 97. Diplomacy is acquired by the native as the Sun aspects the 5th house which signifies diplomacy. If the Sun is in his own sign or is exalted the acquisition of wealth will be more accentuated but if the Sun is associated with a malefic there will be loss of wealth probably on account of native becoming extravagant. He will also not possess any conveyance. The conjunction of the Sun with the lord of 4th has been stated to be very beneficial to the native. Although it is not mentioned in the above Sutras, conjunction of the Sun with the lord of 2nd, 1st or 9th would also be very beneficial particularly when the Sun be in his own sign.

Other Views
Brihat Jatak-The Sun in the 11th house will make the person born wealthy.
Phaldeepika-The native will be wealthy, long lived and happy. He will have command over many persons, that is, he will be of high status.
Saravali-The native will accumulate wealth, will be powerful, will hate others, will be without servants, will stick to his words and will be successful in his ventures.
Chamatkar Chifitamani-The native will acquire wealth from the king (Government) and possess many kinds of wealth. He will destroy his enemies by his valour but will be unhappy in the matter of children.

Note-The eleventh house is a house of gains and all the authorities mentioned above agree with Bhirgu Sutras that the placement of the Sun in this house is beneficial for acquisition of wealth.

Purva Phalguni Nakshatra

Purva Phalguni "the former reddish one" 13.20 to 26.40 Leo

Symbol - Bed (the front legs), hammock, fig tree     

Deity - Bhaga god of bliss (marital) and prosperity  

Stars - Zosma, located in the back of the Lion, is a star of egotism and self-indulgence     

Mythology - The Phalgunis are the "marriage mansions". Where the power of love and attraction start with Rohini , here it results in the settling down in marriage. Bhaga protects marital happiness and bestows family inheritance. Lord Shiva started his marriage precession under this star.   

This nakshatra implies by the bed or hammock it is a time of rest and relaxation. These individuals are usually carefree, never worry and rely on their luck. They are attractive, sensual, and affectionate. They are very social, with the ability to influence others, with their communicative skills. Social events and parties are their favorite activity. This has been called the party nakshatra. They are kind, generous, and loyal, and are seldom alone. They are usually married or in a long term relationship. Their joyousness can lead to excesses, going to the extremes. They are very sexual and passionate. They have robust health. They may be lazy and indulgent, lending to vanity and narcissism. They can be very artistic and often express themselves through music and dance. There is often a substantial family inheritance.

Magha Nakshtra

Magha "the great one" 0.00 to 13. 20 Leo

Symbol  - Royal throne

Deity - Pitris, family ancestors, "The Fathers"

Stars - Regulus, the heart of the lion, gives fame, lofty big ideals, with a thirst for power.

Mythology - This is the constellation believed to be the where our ancestors dwell and await their opportunity to reincarnate back with their families on earth.

Indications - They are noble and eminent persons with leadership abilities. In this nakshatra kings or presidents are born, or simply those who rule or take charge. There is a drive for power and wealth. They are traditional with strong values and strong ambitions leading to restlessness. They are attached to their heritage and ancestry, and will usually seek out their family tree or origins. Worldly power and a need for recognition can obsess them. They have a generous heart, and deep loyalty with possible arrogance and egotism. Elitism and class-consciousness can make them quite snobby. There is a sense of emptiness that drives them towards enlightenment.

The Sun in the Tenth House

If the Sun is in the tenth house, the native will make distinctive achievements in the educational sphere by his 18th year, and will become famous and quite capable of learning well. If three planets aspect the Sun, the native will be liked by -the king (Government), he will do pious deeds, will be very brave and valorous and earn good reputation. If the Sun is exalted (that is, he is in Aries) or is in his own sign Leo, the native will become powerful and famous on account of his good qualities and achievements. He will construct reservoirs and temples and places for housing cows and Brahmins. If the Sun is in the sign of a malefic, or is aspected by or associated with a malefic, there will be obstructions in his professional career. He will indulge in evil deeds, will be of undesirable conduct, immoral and sinful.

Comments-The Sun is considered powerful in the 10th house as he gets directional strength in this house. If not afflicted by malefic influence, the Sun will give all the favourable results mentioned above. When the Sun is exalted in the 10th, the ascendant will be Cancer and the Sun as exalted .lord of the 2nd house (house of wealth) will be in 10th. This will give rise to an excellent Dhanayoga which will make the native very wealthy and prosperous and a man of high status as will be seen from the following horoscope of the late Pandit Moti Lal Nehru. If the Sun is in his own sign Leo the lord of 10th will be in 10th giving rise to a powerful Rajayoga and no achievement will be too high for him. The tenth house is also house of Karma. It is therefore but natural that benefic influences on the Sun and the tenth house and its dignity will make the native do pious deeds, and malefic influence will turn him immoral and make him indulge in evil and sinful deeds. As far as the effects of the aspect of the three planets on the Sun as mentioned in Sutra 89, we see no logic behind the conclusion arrived at. We leave it to the readers to verify this from their practical experience.

Other Views
Brihat Jatak-The person concerned will be happy and powerful.
Phaldeepika-The native will be blessed with children and will have all comfort of conveyances. He will be wise, wealthy, powerful and of good reputation.
Saravali-The native will be blessed with children and will be wise and wealthy. He will enjoy the comfort of conveyances. He will achieve success in his profession, will remain unconquered and will be noble and will attain high status.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native win achieve success in his work like a king. He will cause pain to his mother (as Sun as a malefic aspects the fourth house which is significator for mother) and will get separated from his relations. He will always be mentally worried.

Note-Readers will not fail to realise that good effects given by Brihat Jatak, Phaldeepika and Chamatkar Chintamani are of the Sun in the tenth house when he is dignified and has benefic influences. Very clear distinction has been made of the effects of such influences in the conclusions given in Bhrigu Sutras.

The Sun in the Ninth House

If the Sun is in the 9th, native will be a devotee of the Sun and other Gods. He will be religious-minded but not much fortunate and will be inimical to father. If the Sun is exalted or is in his own sign the results will be very favourable namely, the native will be blessed with wife and children. The native's father will be long lived. He will also be very wealthy, will take interest in religious rites and meditation and will be devoted to the preceptor and God. If the Sun is posited in his sign of debilitation (Libra), enemy or malefic sign or if he is aspected by a malefic, there will be loss of father (this means that this disposition will adversely affect the longevity of the father). If the Sun is aspected by or associated with a benefic, the father will be long lived.

Comments-The ninth house being house of Dharma, the presence of a Sattva guna planet like the Sun makes the native religious minded and a devotee of God, but its other significations suffer on account of the Sun being a malefic planet. He will become less fortunate and the native will have inimical relations with his, father (ninth house is a significator for father). Being 5th to 5th the ninth is also house of children. It is also house of prosperity and Bhagya. If the Sun is exalted (in this situation the ascendant will be Leo, and Sun as lord of ascendant will be exalted in the ninth house, an excellent disposition), or in his own sign Leo (this position of lord of the ninth being in the ninth will generate a powerful Raja Yoga), all the good results of the ninth house will be magnified. The native will be blessed with wife and children, he will be very fortunate-and prosperous, he will have great faith in religion, he will pay respect to the preceptor and God and his father will be well off and long lived. Malefic influence on the Sun (and consequently also on the ninth house) will not only adversely affect the longevity of the father but also other significations of this house. Benefic influence will cancel the malefic results.

Other Views-
Brihat Jatak-The person concerned will be endowed with children, wealth and happiness.
Phaldeepika-The father of the native will not be happy and be shortlived. The native will get happiness from children and relations, and will pay respect to Brahmins (religious leaders) and God.
Saravali-The native will be wealthy, blessed with children, devotee of Brahmins and God and inimical towards mother.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will be an evil person, he will always be mentally worried, he will perform religious rites unwillingly and will suffer from the hands of his real brothers.

Note-The views of the above authorities are self explanatory. It is not clear how Saravali refers to mother when the Sun and ninth house have nothing to do with her. We would prefer to give more weight to the views expressed in Bhrigu Sutras in which a very clear distinction has been in effects as a result of benefic and malefic, weak and strong disposition of the Sun and also of the benefic and malefic influences on the Sun and the ninth house. Evidently, Brihat Jatak and Saravali have given the effects of a favourably disposed Sun and Phaldeepika and Chamatkar Chintamani have given effects of the Sun according to his normal significations (that is as a malefic but sattva guna planet).

Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha ‘the embracer" 16.40 to 30.00 Cancer
Symbol - Serpent, a curled up or coiled snake           
Deity - Sarpas, or the Nagas, deified snakes 
Stars - The ring of stars that form the head of the Hydra (a serpent like creature) Acubens situated on the southern claw of the crab, is good for writing, study of astrology and public affairs 

Mythology - The serpent is the symbol of great wisdom, found in the occult sciences such as astrology or psychology. The snake has been referred to as the kundalini energy that rises through the spine in bringing spiritual enlightenment and magical powers.   

Indications - These are penetrating and intense individuals, with hypnotic eyes. They can hypnotize you with their glare and presence. It has been referred to as the "Clinging Star", implying they can squeeze the life out of you. They are profound and full of wisdom, but have been know to use it to the contrary, like black magic. They can be sneaky, crafty, devious liars. They attack when you lest expect it, are cold blooded, and dangerous. The end result is their convincing ways turn on them and they suffer the consequences of poisoning themselves. They cannot tolerate any criticism or humiliation. They are extremely sexual and may use it to manipulate and control others. When they become so distrustful, fearful and hurt they learn to turn their manipulative energy to divine wisdom and use their magic to achieve enlightenment. There can be interest in poisons in terms of medicines that heals.

Pushya Nakshatra

Pushya "to nourish" 3.20 to 16.40 Cancer
Symbol - Cow’s utter (milk producing), the lotus, an arrow and a circle 
Deity - Brihaspati, or Jupiter the priest of the gods 
Stars - Three stars in the constellation of Cancer, North and South Asellis refer to giving care and nourishment. 

Mythology - Brihaspati is the guru or teacher of the gods and is lord of speech and prayer. Shiva made Brihaspati into the planet Jupiter. Brihhaspati had his wife Tara stolen by Soma, and she bore a child from this affair (Budha). Brihaspati was taken by the charm of this child and raised it as his own. 

Indications - Those who have this nakshatra are very religious, but usually in a conventional way. There is a helping, caring nature. They are very wealthy, abundant, sometimes to the point of opulence. They have close nit families. Since they are so high minded they come to believe they know it all, and can be very arrogant as to their orthodox beliefs. They believe they know all the rules, and they must make sure others follow their laws. They can be smug and believe they are the only ones who are right and the whole world is wrong, of course this indicates insecurity. The nourishment and abundance principle can create overweight problems. They are philosophers, and spiritual with boundless devotion. They want to share their inner wealth, so they are frequently teachers, preachers and professors

Punarvasu Nakshatra

Punarvasu "return of the light" 20.00 Gemini to 3.20 Gemini - Cancer
Symbol - Bow and quiver (case that contains the arrows) 
Deity - Aditi, the mother of the gods, she is boundless, vast and limitless, goddess of abundance 
Stars - Castor and Pollux the Gemini twins; the full meaning is "the two who give back the good." Castor was the mortal twin known for his skill in horsemanship. This star suggests intellect, sudden fame and honor, sometimes followed by sudden loss. Pollux the immortal twin is known for his skill in boxing. This star gives a courageous nature but cold and heartless. 

Indications - This is referred to as the "Star of Renewal". After the bleak storms of Ardra the light appears again. Those with this nakshata have the ability to bounce back again, for they have deep limitless inner resources, and no boundaries as to what they can accomplish. They are deeply philosophical, inspirational, and spiritual with a true genuine understanding, which gives them their wisdom. There hardly seems to be a shadow side. They are likable, and charming. Because of their forgiving ways, others seem to forgive them easily. They love to travel, but just as the arrow is returned to the quiver so must these natives have a home base with family to return. There is a definite theme of return and renewal. As they give back to the world their prosperity doubles. This is a very prosperous nakshatra. They don’t have the need for a lot, they are content with little.

Ardra Nakshatra

Ardra "the moist one" 6.40 to 20.00 Gemini
Symbol - Teardrop, diamond, a human head

Deity - Rudra the storm god, "the howler" and god of destruction, another form of Shiva.
Stars - Betelgeuse is situated on the shoulder of Orion. A star of power, it gives an active mind, with ups and downs in career, and marital wealth and honors. 
Mythology - Rudra the destroyer is a form of Shiva who brought down Prajapati (Orion) to save Rohini from the sexual violation of the daughter. This destroyed the unity of the cosmos.

Indications - There is sadness as the symbol of the teardrop suggests. There is a very destructive quality here, but the destruction is necessary to save grace for the future. They create destruction and havoc wherever they go, sometimes even destroying themselves. This is the place of the dark night of the soul, for there is a new dawn or new beginning after the seeming tragedy. After the worse storms comes the beautiful sunny day, for the following nakshatra (Purnarvasu) means "return of the light." The rain the storm clouds produce brings growth and fertileness. These individuals are good at creating things out of destruction. They like to renovate old discarded things. This can refer to fixing up old houses or cars. They do have a lust for power and material things, and can appear cold and calculating. Their violent temperament causes many tears and depression, which can lead to their early destruction and death. They need to develop a sense of gratitude and appreciation for this will heal many wounds. Their real satisfaction comes as they overcome their hardships, and the truth and realization that comes through their suffering.

The Sun in the Eighth House

If the Sun is in the eighth house the native will get few children. He will suffer from eye diseases. In the 10th year he will suffer from a head injury but he will not get this if the Sun is aspected by a benefic. The native will have meager wealth and the domestic cattle, cow, buffaloes belonging to the native will get destroyed. He will suffer from chronic ailments of the body but he will be famous. If the lord of eighth is associated with strong planets, the native will become owner of the land of his choice. If the Sun is exalted (in Aries) or in his own sign (Leo), the native will be long lived.

Comments-The native will suffer from eye diseases as the Sun in the eighth house afflicts by powerful aspect the 2nd house which is a significator of eye sight and right eye. His suffering from head injury in the 10th year is a matter for verification by practical experience, but accidents is one of the significations of the eighth house and the head injury might be caused by some sort of accident. He will have meagre wealth because of the affliction by aspect of the 2nd house which is the house of wealth (Dhana Bhava). It is difficult to explain how cattle of the native will be destroyed by the presence of the Sun in the eighth house and it is again a matter for verification by practical experience. The eighth house signifies chronic diseases, so the native will suffer from such diseases on account of the malefic influence of the Sun in this house. The Sun is a planet of longevity and his being strong by being in exaltation or by his being in his own sign will enhance the span of life of the native. The native getting land of his own choice if the Sun is associated with strong planets, is not clear to us. The eighth house has nothing to do with lands. In fact if the Sun as lord of the 4th is in the 8th, the native is likely to lose the lands or the house he possesses. However, a benefic and strong Sun may bring land to the natives by inheritance.

Other Views
Brihat Jatak-The native will have a limited number of issues and will have defective eye sight.
Phaldeepika-There will be loss of wealth, loss of longevity, loss of friends, poor eye sight.
Saravali-The native will suffer from eye troubles, will be devoid of happiness and wealth, will be short lived and unhappy because of separation from near and dear ones.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will always be ready to do any work entrusted to him. He will always be in difficulty. He will have close relations with foreign women. He will be a drug addict. His money will be stolen by thieves. He will suffer from diseases of the secret organs.

Note-Except the views of Chamatkar Chintamani. the views of the other authorities mentioned above tally with the conclusions of Bhrigu Sutras. The views of Chamatkar Chintamani are also relevant to the significations of the eighth house.

The Sun in the Seventh House

If the Sun is in the seventh house the marriage of the native will take place late (that is, long after the marriageable age). He will not respect the opposite sex. He will indulge in sexual relations with women other than his wife. He will have more than one wife. In his 25th year he will travel to a place far away from his native land. He will be witty and fond of non-vegetarian food. He will not have fair dealings with his wife. He will be of unstable mind. If the Sun is posited in his own sign Leo, the native will live with only one wife. If the Sun is associated with an enemy or debilitated planet, or if he is associated with or aspected by a malefic, the native will have a number of wives (or will have sexual contacts with many women.)

Comments-It is clear from what is stated above that the placement of the Sun in the 7th house is not at all favourable for marital relations except when he is in own sign Leo. The marriage of the native will be delayed probably because of his incapability to settle down with one woman. Further being a malefic planet he will spoil the normal significations of the 7th house. The Sun is a hot planet. He also signifies vitality and virility. The native will therefore be abnormally passionate and will run after more than one woman to satisfy his carnal desires. This vice will be further accentuated when there are malefic influences on the Sun native will go away to a far off place if the Sun is in the seventh in his horoscope. We remember of one case about the correctness of this statement which was reported in one of the issues of Prof B.V. Raman's Astrological magazine. We would advise the readers to verify this by practical experience.

Other Views
Brihat Jatak-The person concerned should suffer humiliation at the hands of women.
Phaldeepika-Some part of the body of the native will be afflicted. The native will act against the interests of the Govt. He will wander aimlessly and get humiliated. The native will be devoid of happiness from wife.
Saravali-The native will be without lustre on his face, he will get humiliated in public, he will suffer from diseases and will do deeds which may lead him into prison. He will be immoral and will have no respect for women.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The wife of the native will suffer. The body of the native will be afflicted. He will always be worrying. He will suffer loss in business. Because of his jealous nature he will never get proper sleep.

Note-It is clear from the above views that if the Sun is in the 7th house, the native will be immoral in all sorts of ways. Because of his immoral nature, he will get involved in affairs which will lead to his humiliation by women. For the same reason his marital life will not be happy. He will not be patriotic and will act against the king or Government. For this reason he may have to wander here and there. As far as the immorality of the native is concerned the views expressed in Bhrigu Sutras are supported by the authorities mentioned above.

Mrigashira Nakshatra

Mrigashira "head of a deer" 23.20 Taurus to 6.40 Gemini
Symbol - Deer’s head (Antelope)      
Deity - Soma, the Moon god (Chandra)        
Stars - Orion, a group of three stars that represent the head of the hunter in the sky. Bellatrix is on the left shoulder of Orin means "female warrior" gives military honors.          
Mythology - Orion was the sky god Prajapati the world maker. He became obsessed with his beautiful daughter Rohini and chased her though this part of the sky, changing forms for swiftness. One of the forms was the antelope. To save Rohini, Shiva shot an arrow through Prajapati sending him crashing down to earth, destroying the oneness of the Universe.         

Indications - This is referred to as the "star of searching". These individuals are constantly searching or looking for something. They are restless, nervous types always traveling. They are collectors looking for one more piece to add to their collections. They love to shop and fine that special deal, and the shopping or searching never ends. Like the deer they are gentle, peaceful, tender and have large soft doe like eyes. They are seekers and are powerful investigators and researchers. Highly intelligent their quest will eventually take them to spiritual dimensions of their soul. There is a sensual provocative side that can lead to incestuous relationships as the myth suggests. The fun is in the chase or the journey not the destination, for then the trill is over. They are known for having beautiful children.            

Rohini Nakshatra

Rohini "the red one" 10.00 to 23.20 Taurus
Symbol - cart or a chariot, temple, banyan tree         
Deity - Brahma, or Prajapati, the creator       
Stars - There are five stars of the head of the Bull (the Hyades). Aldebaran is the red eye of the bull. This star gives enthusiasm, intelligence, eloquence, and public honors, but there can be sickness and violence.     
Mythology - Of the 27 daughters, Rohini was the Moon’s (Soma) favorite wife. He spent more time in this nakshatra, because of her beauty and seductive qualities. The others sisters became jealous and the father (Prajapati) cast a spell on Soma, where he becomes ill each month but recovers. This is why the Moon waxes and wanes each month.

Indications - The "star of ascent," the myth implies the suffering our intense desires may bring, for the Moon could not help his desire for Rohini. This is a passionate, sexually seductive nakshatra. These people are very attractive, alluring, and beautiful. They love luxury, art, music and all the finer things life has to offer. They are extremely materialistic and frown on those who don’t measure up to their taste and high culture. They can be spoiled, for nothing ever seems to be good enough for their high standards. They can be extremely critical of others, looking down at their seeming low class. As the myth implies, they can be over sexed, and use sex to get what they want. They can be very artistic and have an appreciation for beauty and the fine arts. This is a growth-oriented nakshatra, ruling crops and fertility. This implies they can rise to the top and achieve their desires. Also there is fertility for procreation, meaning they have children. This nakshatra gives wealth, but they must harness their worldly materialistic desires.    

Krittika Nakshatra

Krittika "the one who cuts" 26.40 Aries to 10.00 Taurus  
Symbol - a knife, or a razor       
Deity - Agni, god of fire        
Stars - The Pleiades, (The "Weeping Sisters") Alceyone one of the six Pleiades, is the star of sorrow, success and prominence. Algol is one of the most violent evil stars, which deals with decapitation or symbolically loosing your head.  
Mythology - Karttikeya, a powerful warrior, was born in the Pleiades and nursed by the six sisters who were falsely accused of infidelity.  

Indications - The "star of fire" is sharp, piercing and penetrating. People with this nakshatra have a cutting wit and can be sarcastic and critical. They are proud, ambitious and determined. They are passionate crusaders. As the nursemaids nurtured and protected Karttikeya, there is a protective influence, and they seem to adopt and care for children not their own. Their need to protect is where the warrior comes out. They are stubborn, aggressive and can be very angry. This nakshatra rules war, battles, and disputes. Since Agni is the ruling deity, these people have fast metabolisms and good digestion, and are usually good cooks. They have frequent ups and downs in life. Their passions can lead them to illicit sexual affairs, as the Pleiades were falsely accused. They are bigger than life and can rise to a place of fame and prominence.         

Bharani Nakshatra

Bharani "the bearer of new life" 13.20 to 26.40 Aries         
Symbol - Yoni, the female organ for reproduction        
Deity - Yama, god of death, or Dharma        
Stars - A binary star in the left foot of Andromenda, Almach gives honor and artistic ability.
Menkar, placed in the jaw of the whale indicates disgrace, trouble with legacies, and dishonor.
Mythology - This part of the sky was called Apabharani, which means "the waters that carry things away". This refers to all the souls that will transit here when they die. Yama is like Pluto and leads the dead to the other world. Yama was the first man sent to earth and the first man to die.

Indications - Considered the "star of restraint," this is a difficult nakshatra. It denotes struggles and obstacles that result in personal breakthroughs. It is symbolic of the birthing process where one has grown out of the present conditions and must go through the pain of a new birth to create a new life. It is about personal transformation. Since Yama was the first to come to earth, and the first to die, they may be the first to try or do things. Social reformers, activists and philosophers are prominent here. There is a tendency towards jealousy or being plagued by the jealousy of others. Because the womb is so confining, in the end there is a feeling of restriction or confinement for these individuals. They feel oppressed by others, large groups and restrictive laws imposed by the government. It can also refer to those who inflict oppression on others. Here is the mystery of life and death. They may be attracted to a position such as an OBGYN physician  or a mortician. They can be fanatical and intolerant of others who have different opinions. They are excessive and indulgent sexually. Their inner struggles can become a spiritual transformation leading to enlightenment.

The 27 Nakshatras

The nakshatras are one of the oldest references we have to astrology from the Rig Veda, dating back about 5,000 years ago. The Vedas are the religious scriptures of the great seers and sages of India. The nakshatras are like the zodiacal signs but more specific. Their meanings are derived from the constellations, fixed stars and the mythology behind these portions in the sky. They are rich in meaning and have ruling deities that reveal the stories or myths that bring to life the symbology referred to in our own lives.

The nakshatras are divisions of 13 degrees 20 minutes starting from zero Aries and ending at 30 degrees of Pisces, 13.20 divided into the 12 signs is 27. The nakshatras are referred to as the lunar mansions because the Moon moves approximately 13.20 per day, therefore, resides in one nakshatra per day. The personal planet in which the nakshatra resides will reveal deep information about the individual in relation to the meanings of the houses (area of life), and what houses the planet rules.

For example, the planet that rules the 7th house (indicating a person’s spouse), will reveal detailed information about the spouse by the description of that nakshatra. If Aries is the sign of the 7th house, then Mars, the ruler of Aries (the nakshatra where Mars resides) will describe the spouse. If Mars is in the nakshatra Magha, the spouse would have all the kingly qualities of Magha.

"The Horse Woman"  0.00 to 13.20  Aries
Symbol - Horse’s head   
Deity - Ashwini Kumaras the horse headed twins who, as physicians to the gods, perform medical miracles
Stars - El Sharatan, the horn of the Ram.
Its qualities are violent, outspoken, and brazen 
Mythology - Sanjna is the name of the goddess who disguised herself as a horse and fled from her husband because he betrayed her. He caught up with her, and their offspring produced the Ashwini Kumaras, the horse-headed twins. Each day the twins bring the dawn as their chariot speeds through the sky 
Indications - The "star of transport," they are pioneers, explorers, always ready to try something new. They have zeal, and a zest for life. Heroic and very courageous, some will want to join the armed forces. Their restless and impatient nature has them rushing off quickly without planning ahead. Speed, not efficiency, is their preference. Their speech may be quick and halting, possibly stuttering, for the words can’t match the speed of their thoughts. They are the true trailblazers, headstrong and stubborn. As the symbol for new beginnings, they can represent a baby who goes after what it wants, not considering the inconveniences to others. They can be childish, irresponsible and inconsiderate. Ashwini rules all forms of transportation and fast travel. They are probably known for getting speeding tickets. Healers performing miracle healings are one of Ashwini’s gifts.

NEECHBHANGRAJA YOGA (Cancellation of debilitation)

How powerful can this Neechbhang Raj Yog (NBRY) be? 
When In full swing, its power cannot be described, as it straight away makes the native an emperor nothing less than an emperor, i.e. many kings will report to such a person, even 4 well placed exalted planets in a chart cannot match its power. What More I can say.

Neechbhang Raj yoga comes after neech result only. Serious Problems are part and parcel of every human's life, but how many people have the ability to decimate the ongoing problems and move ahead ??. Only 0.1% people who have such ability, taste extraordinary success as a result of neechbhang Raj yoga. That's a reason why I say that NBRY is very very rare.

The root cause of the power of this yoga is the "HUGE learning which native may derive from the negative experiences of life and use those experiences for constructive purposes"

For example: A person never had enough food to eat during initial 15-20 years of his life, later DECIDED to completely decimate the hunger of all the children who are suffering just like him and with time, due to this strong will and hard work, he is now able to become the bread earner for lakhs of people.

Actually by feeding so many people he is not decimating the hunger of lakhs of people, instead he is ACTUALLY CHALLENGING the BAD DESTINY of the those lakhs of people. In a way he is telling his own destiny that "DONT MESS WITH ME" or else I will simply destroy you, just like a treatment which a tornado gives to a piece of cotton.

Hence initial 15-20 years of his life was just like experiencing NEECH effect, but he took his struggle as a challenge and decimated the hunger of lakhs of people later in his life, which EVEN A KING / Minister WAS NOT ABLE TO DO.

That's the power of Neechbhang Raj yoga. It makes the person so VERY strong willed that, even mountains cannot come in his front. He will not deflect his way due to that presence of mountain instead he would move ahead and would raise the level of his will power to such an extent that, he is able to crush the whole mountain under the thumb of his feet.

Feel my words to feel the power of this yoga. 1 NBRY can alone compete and win over 30 Normal Raj yogas.

So, IF you also have such will power to crush the mountains, you also have Neech bhang Raj yoga.

This is the reason why I am writing a full article on it.


Caution: Whole chart should be seen before giving any conclusion is astrology.
First of all let me list the rules related to this concept, as per the nadi texts:

A planet causing neechbhang will make the person emperor and that too in his youth.

a) depositor of the sign occupied by the debilitated planet in Kendra 
b) Conjunction of an exalted planet with a debilitated planet (like sun and Saturn in Libra and Aries, Jupiter and mars in Capricorn and cancer…etc)

NOTE: NEECHBHANG RAJ YOGA DO NOT FUCTION for natives with CANCER ASCENDANT.on the contrary it would obstruct the prosperity. (This is as per Devakeralam text)

Before moving ahead let me give you one more concept, the more a deliberated planet is close to its highest debilitation degree, the more powerful would be its neechbhang.

(Like in case of Sun its 10 degree of Libra)
Let me also list the applicability of this Raj yog as per other sources (right from various forums to blogs to books to general articles on Internet or as per my little humble experience)

1) Both exalted and deliberated planet in one rashi. 
Jupiter & mars in cancer, Capricorn
Sun and Saturn in Aries and Libra
Venus and mercury in Virgo or Pieces etc

2) Lord of rashi in which neech planet (debilitated Planet) is placed is in Kendra from moon or lagan for example if sun is deliberated in Libra, Then if Venus is in Kendra from moon or lagan.

3) Lord of the rashi in which the deliberated planet gets exalted, in the Kendra from moon or lagan. For example If sun is getting deliberated in Libra, then since sun gets exalted in Aries.

Therefore lord of Aries i.e. mars is in Kendra from moon or lagan neech bhang occurs.

(Note: I have few reservations regarding the applicability of the above rule)

4) When the debilitated planet gets exalted in navamsa (D-9) or shatyamsa (D-60) in the Kendra (Quadrants), trikond (Trines), 2nd or 11th houses, neech bhang occurs.

5) When a planet (in strength) aspects its own rashi in which a planet is getting deliberated, neech bhang occurs for that planet.

For ex: moon is getting deliberated in Scorpio, aspected by mars (should be in strength).

(Note: I have few reservations regarding the applicability of the above rule too as I feel that in this case Neechbhang will not be complete)
6) When a debilitated planet gets a Vargottamm (planet occupies same rashi in lagan and navamsa charts) position, neechbhang occurs., again this is will not be complete but yes planet do gain strength, when happens to be Vargottamm. 

7) Sometimes neechbhang Raj yog occurs along with vipreet Raj Yoga (VRY), In these kind of cases yoga becomes extremely powerful.

For ex: - Mercury getting debilitated in 12th house being the lord of 6th house. Now if suppose Jupiter which is the lord of 12th house gets exalted in 4th House (which is a quadrant) and obviously Jupiter is also aspecting mercury. Now in this case mercury causing both VRY and neechbhang Raj Yoga, Hence this mercury becomes extremely powerful. There could be many more.
There are few other rare conditions of neechbhang Raj yog which are hardly listed anywhere.

1) When there is a parivartan yog (Exchange) between two planets getting debilitated.

For example when moon is placed in Scorpio and mars in cancer. Here you can see that both Moon and mars are getting debilitated but still in this case a kind of neech bhang is happening due to the exchange of rashi’s happening between them. Result can further improve if there is more benefic influence on Moon and mars and also if both of them are gaining adequate shadbala. So, here none of them will give a bad result.

2) When a debilitated planet simply goes in the parivartan yog with its friend (naisargik and functional both).

For example debilitated Venus is getting in parivartan (exchange) with its naisargik and functional friend mercury in Libra, Especially for Virgo, and Capricorn Ascendant.

3) When the lord of the rashi in which a planet is getting debilitated, also gets debilitated and the latter one receives neech bhang, then former one will also get a powerful neechbhang, but here the planet which is causing the Neech bhang of the 2nd planet should be really powerful ( from the angle of shadbala).This is termed as "chained neech bhang Raj yoga"

for example: - If sun is placed in Libra and its rashi lord venus is also getting debilitated in Virgo and now If venus gets a Strong neech bhang then sun will also get a neech bhang. (SEE the chart of Prince Charles)
Assume mercury is getting debilitated in Pieces, Pieces lord Jupiter is also getting debilitated in Capricorn now if Jupiter gets a strong neech bhang then mercury would also get a neech bhang.(SEE the chart of sachin tendulkar)


Do you think that all neech bhang are of the same kind?

The answer is big no, some are more powerful and some are less, let’s understand why?

Take the example of Venus and mercury placed in Virgo (neech bhang for venus) and in Pieces (neechbhang for mercury) or Jupiter mars in Capricorn and cancer (neech bang for Jupiter and mars respectively)

In all the of the above examples COMMON point is that neech bhang (if occurring) Would be occurring with the help of a friend.

(In the above cases, Both Venus and mercury are friends; also both Jupiter and mars are friends).

But if we look at the case of sun and Saturn (in Aries for sat and in Libra for sun), [out of the these cases sun neechbhang would be more powerful as Saturn is a more malefic planet as compared to sun and is also the inherent enemy of Sun.("This is as per the rule, when more malefic planet is exalted and a comparatively less malefic planet is debilitated, neechbhang occurs in a more powerful way if they are in conjunction)

So let me take the case of sun and Saturn placed in Libra.(being more powerful), why is the Neechbhang of Sun in Libra is more powerful than in cases of Jupiter, Mars( and venus, mercury. ?

See, THEY BOTH (sun and Saturn) ARE enemy’s (Unlike the case of Jupiter & mars./ venus & mercury)...that is the reason why here neech bhang of sun would be much more powerful as compared to the neechbhang of venus, mercury, mars, Jupiter in similar Situation (exalted and deliberated planet in the same rashi).


See, even our most dreaded enemy can contribute in our success greatly, indeed, in most of the times critics have a more daunting role to play in our success story. You all will agree on this.

This explains why Saturn despite being an enemy of sun, provide huge strength to the sun in the process of neechbhang. Now way it happens?

Saturn is planet of hard work. persons who are Saturn dominated are extremely hard working, they also develop the quality of perseverance and patience due to the effect of Saturn, Saturn makes them stable in all the conditions and keeps them humble and down to earth. These people are truth driven and always look to help anyone in need.

Therefore when sun gets debilitated and Saturn is placed with it native tends to counter the odds with sheer hard work which is actually the IDEAL way. SO, this was all about the rules, now let’s come to the significance part.
Have you ever thought that why this yoga is so powerful?

Understand like this, there is a native who have all the qualities to become successful in life, right from hard work to intelligence to compassion to patience etc, but still due to some or the other unavoidable circumstance in life, he always gets tested. He again rises and again some person or circumstances pull him down and this process is happening again and again, 100’s of time.

Despite all this there is one streak in him due to which he just do not looses heart, and always tries to get up again in life. You can say that, it’s in his nature to always fight and fight. (Only few have this kind of nature)

Now in the above process this person is continuously getting sanctified just like gold achieves its highest purity at the highest temperatures and then we all know that even a “Dog has its Day”. The day his time gives him the flexibility to achieve, this person has developed the habit to extract maximum out that single opportunity. Assume a volcano lava waiting for years and years to break the shackles of earth to come out with Bang bang, assume a rocket taking time in reaching that threshold level by burning tons and tons of fuel and as soon as it gets its escape velocity nothing could stop him to straightaway touch the universe within a matter of seconds, a plane which take off in a regular manner cannot achieve a height which a rocket CAN (just like a normal raja can give the native a sky but cannot dare to give the universe which a Neechbhang Raj yoga can)
