The relationship between Chakras and Panchanga

Chakra, a Sanskrit word, is meant wheel or force center. The explanation of Chakra is found from Panchanga is meant five elements of the body. I will explain Panchanga later.

Their relationship is on the attachment.


Karaka is meant who or what does or produces or creates or acts. In Vedic astrology, it is meant significations of Grahas or Bhavas. Some significations of Grahas you can find at my previous post "Grahas I". The significations or Karaka of Bhavas are on the attachment.

The Sun presents the body, th health, anything related to ourselves. The karaka of the first house is the Sun.

The purpose of the life on the earth

We came to the earth to train ourselves and learn for our souls. We may meet some challenges and blocks in the front of us, but they are our trainings and are the purposes why we came to this world. We have chosen our ways before we came to this world. You have the rights to not to believe and this is your chosen to learn it.

An astrologer can not tell you your future without your permissions. Even you want to know yours, you have to pay to get the your own future information. This is given a earning chance for astrologers, but there is another important reason. An astrologer have to pay for what he said if you and your higher soul do not agree to know. How do you know your higher soul agree to know? When you and your higher souls get ready, you will find your answers by any way (included consultation, etc.).

Please try to help the person to finish his purpose on this life.

Mode of rising

There are three types of mode of rising.

1. Shirshodaya (rising with the head) - (signs of the zodiac) 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11.

2. Prishodaya (rising with the hind) - (signs of the zodiac) 1 (Aries) , 2, 4, 9, 10.

3. Ubbayodaya (rising with the both) - (signs of the zodiac) 12.


Argala is meant a bolt or lock or an intervention. None of the activities in the world is happened alone. There are many factors, each activity, in our life.

Argala is a Jyotish tool to analyse how the argala influence our activities. Argala is like the planetary interventions.

Argalas are, two types, called Subhargala and Paapargala.
Benefics planets (Subha Graha) cause Subhargala and Malefic Planets (Paapa Grahas) cause Paapargala.

Let's take an example. We look for a short journeys from the 3rd house. What are the necessary things during a journey? One needs a vehicle (4th). One may need someone to serve one by driving the vehicle. The service is seen from 6th. So, no wonder the 4th and 6th houses cause argala on the 3rd house. If one has papargala on 3rd from 4th, it may show trouble to the journey because of the vehicle. If one has papargala on 3rd from 6th, it may show trouble to the journey because of the driver.

So, we can classify these indications in the following houses:

Our Attitudes and Personlity, Job-Satisfaction, etc.

11th house:
Income from the Job, Friends Circle

Virodha means opposition. Here we may see the strength of opposition on existing argala. More planets or stronger planets in the virodh-argala causing house show one of the following situation.

1. If Virodha is stronger and the virodhargala planet is favourable, whereas the argala in unfavourable
2. Virodha is unfavourable whereas the argala is favourable to the karaka of the house under consideration

In Western Astrology Bhāva are called houses.
The first house is the house which rises on the Eastern Horizon you will see a sole Rashi rising (Ascending).

The first house is the Rashi which is rising from the east.
The forth house is below the horizon and it is right below the feet. In Western Astrology, it is called Nadir.
The Seventh House is the Rashi which is setting down the west, going below the horizon.
The Tenth House is above the horizon and it is on the top of our head. In Western Astrology, it is called Zenith.

The first house represents the yourself, your characteristics, your nature etc. It is your Dharma.

The fourth house is the lowest point of yourself. It is Moksha or The Liberation.

The 7th house is the opposite of the 1st house representing your interactions with the outside world. It is Kama. (your desires)

The 10th house is the topmost house. It is Artha.

You can think these four houses on the right, left, bottom, and top of yourself.

This represents the person’s belief systems.
The person goes to a certain place for worship (ninth house).
The person holds some book or words as sacred (fifth house).

The person is trying to define to the world at large.

Every person has desires, which can be fulfilled as per the norms of the society. Personal/Business/Social interactions.

This is the end point of all human existence "Freedom".


In Jyotish, the zodiac signs are called Rashi. Rashi is pronounced like RA-SHE.

The whole zodiac belt is divided into twelve equal parts and each part is 30 degrees.

The Rashi starts from Mesha (Aries) to Meena (Pisces) and also maps to our bodies.

Karmic code and Vedic Astrology IV

There are some difficult karmic coded we can read the chart on the following junctions.

The following junctions will bring us a deep issue which we are trying to become reconciled.

Meena in Revati and Mesha in Ashwini, Karkata in Ashlesha and Simha in Magha, Vrishchika in Jyeshta and Dhanus in Mula.

It reveals a soul accepting with past karma and there may be many debts we have to pay. But, it is usually happened in the childhood and we do not have resources to deal with it. That's why it is so difficult.

Karmic code and Vedic Astrology III

We can see the following planets to find out our soul missions.

Mercury - The orientation to the world

Saturn - The journey to personal truth

Mars - Controling/Handling anger widely.

and so on.

Astrology has its limitations. A honest astrology can not foresee everything. He accesses the limited information. He only read the information from the chart or He can not give you one hundred percentage accurate report/prediction to expect to have the psychic power because he does not "know/see" your previous/past life's karmic debts. If you have solved your karma in this life and an astrology do not know it, you may feel his explanation is your past experience because you already have escaped from your fate and created a new life.

Karmic code and Vedic Astrology II

What is Rinanubandhana? Rina means the karmic debts and bandhana means bondage or attachment. Rinanubandhana means the roots of our repeated lives. Karma brings rina and rina also brings karma. That everything we do in this life will store in the memory as karmic debts. Thememory of karmic debts can be happy or sorrow, sweet or bitter and so on.

Some Rinanubandhana is reflected on the relationship. Some people with whom having the strong rinanybandhana become our parents , children, and enemies in this life. A couple who are husband and wife may come back again as husband and wife if their Rinanubandhana are very strong. The bitter enemies can be born as husband and wife and they will always fight. Two people who created positive karmic debts come back as husband and wife and live in the happy life.

Karmic code and Vedic Astrology I

Our souls can be defined as "karmic being". The soul carries the karmic tendencies called Samskaras from one body to another. Our karmas are the DNA of our souls.

The soul’s karmic code is based on the life patterns, the habits, tendencies, desire and so on. We may think the karmic code is the code of the mind and heart.

Why two children, even twin, in the same family share with the same genetic pattern, education and environment, but they have the different futures because they have the different karmic codes.

In the Hindu tradition, Time itself is God. Each time's moment contains its specific karma or destiny and everything happening at that precise moment shares the nature of the moment. Vedic Astrology focus on interpreting the possibilities contained in that moment of time. Because of Hinduism, Vedic astrology focus on the karmic code more than other astrology.

The purpose of astrology does not only emphasize on fate, but also helps us to escape from our fates.

Benefits and pressures hit on April, 2009

Mars is going to the exact opposite angle of Saturn on April 04th. It will bring tensions and stresses. We can see it around G20 taking place in London. The person of ascendant or lagna of Aries, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Aquarius, sepcial for Aries and Scorpio, will feel the pressure. They will be in the form of delay or disappointment. The best way is to be patient. You may deal them after transit unless you can't avoid the issue.

Venus is still retrograde and turns direct on April 17th. Its strength still gives us the benefit. The stimulous in US is taking effect and Venus will bring some corrections in the market. Mars will catch Venus on April 21th. The people of ascendant or lagna of Aries, Taurus, Libra and Scorpio will find the relationship issues. It, Venus Mars conjunction, tends to deliver quick passions which is not good on long term.
Because of Venus motion, it gives us the time to think about living and do not make any decision in hurry.
On April 27th, it is the good time to start a new project.

Most of the issues are going to the past and the cyclical nature of life and it will be an enjoyable month after first week of April.
