Reference Books on Vedic Astrology

Brihat Jatakam

Name of the book Brihat Jatakam
Author Acharya Varahamihara, translation and editing Dr. Suresh Chandra Mishra
Publisher Ranjan Publication, New Delhi, India
Amazon Link Brihat Jataka of Varahamihira

This classic of Indian astrology, authored by Acharya Varahamihira is accorded the same level of importance as that of Brihat Parashara Hora Shashtra. I have this book in Hindi explained by Dr Suresh Chandra Mishra, who calles it भारतीय ज्योतिष का सर्वमान्य संविधान, translated as "universally accepted constitution of Indian astrology". Varahamihira’s family is mentioned to be pioneers in Indian astrology. His son Prithuyashas authored the book on Hora Sara, which I will talk about later.

Although I consider Uttarakalmarita to be a much easier read that any other books that I have, and that could be purely due to the effort of the translator and editor of the book, this book Brihat Jatakam should be one of the first picked up by a student of astrology. The book starts with the description of rashis and planets, shodhashvarga, hora, exaltation and debilitation of planets, bhava and their characteristics etc. Another chapter talks about various types of birth times, those that are the ones meant for human birth and those that aren’t etc. and the general conditions around the time of conception and birth etc. In the second part of the book, the author explains the about the arishtas around the time of birth for the new born and how to ascertain balarishtas and calculation of longevity for the newly born baby. There is a commentary on rajyogas, multiple planets combining on one house etc and various other types of planetary yogas in a horoscope. The final part contains information and explanation on how to predict death and cause of death for an individual. In this part, the author introduces the basics of Prashna astrology where we need to predict the future of an individual who does not his/her time of birth. In this case, the time of asking the question should be used for calculations.

Sir my name is Bijon Chakraborty.42years male DOB is 03/08/1971,Tuesday.Birth place Siliguri(West Bengal)time is evening 5.30pm.

I am a finance professional.Earlier I was the Branch Manager of Axis Bank and done my special papers on Investment consultancies and stock Market.It was my boy hood dream to setup a college on financial markets studies and left the Bank job eight years ago to coup up with the situation of early business ups and downs.It was my calculated judgement.But I till date I am almost financially bankrupted but I do not consider myself as a failure man because I achieved connections,contacts explored opportunities but unable to give shape the plans.Pressure from the family in this hand to mouth conditions.But I am fighting with that hope perhaps one day.
I am also a keen observer of astrology.
my personal details are as follows;

Lagna Makar,Rashi Dhanu,Gon Debari,Janam nakhshatra Mula.

Lagna Rahu+MangalDhanistha(25Degree in Makar)Ananta Kalsarpo or shani Bhanga !
second house nil
third and fourth nil.
Fifth(Brisha)Sani nakshatra Rohini(Chandra)(Lakhmisthan)
sixth,seventh Karkat=Rabi,sukra and ketu
Eight house Sinha Budh nakhatra Ravi
Ninth and tenth no planets but karmapati sukra with Ravi and ketu in karkot the 7th is,Malific or life long Daridra yog?

11th House Brischik Aaya pati mangals place,Jupiter in Bishakha nakhastra.
12th house Dhanu.Chandra is there as Bayapati.
I have consulted with astrologers but they said my chart as a whole malefic and not prosperous.

Sir please give your suggesstion.

Should I charge as per my own remedies the following.

1.A neelam with a pokhraj.
2.Or should I strengthen Venus with few cents with an emerald of 7to 8carats.
3.I am wearing a Coral,just now mangal dasha started.Mangal is my atmakarak should I increase the power.I am suffering a lot with my family and started loosing faith even upon God.Will you please help me with your advice.Thanking you Bijon Chakraborty,Siliguri,West Bengal

hello Priti

Name: Amitkumar Surwase
DOB:30 ,OCT,1985
time: 1.30PM
Place: Solapur(Maharashtra)
india

I think he should go to medical line, he can become a doctor or surgeon or can go to a medical related line.
he can get married in young age. 2009-2015 period will support to become stable. Rahu mahadasha is started so he should wear a good quality GOMED for 17 years from now, and he can wear a Emethist/Neelam also. He can have knowledge of music and may have interest in playing musical instruments. I think his “Budh/Mercury” and Saturn combination can give him some Astrological Knowledge also. He should have fund of good food and traveling. He can go for M.Sc. chemistry etc. or can take interest Botny/zoology also. his maths should also be good.
