An example horoscope

By Kshitij Sharma, January 1, 2010

One of my acquaintances Example horoscope chartasked me to take a look at his horoscope. I am reproducing it here with only some information due to privacy concerns. I would like to get an opinion from other esteemed astrologers who frequent this website.

Saturn is debilitated in 10th house. It is not getting neechabhanga as it is combust. Moon, although in Taurus, is at the fag end of the rashi and the individual is not likely to see the effects of Moon’s exaltation. Sun is exalted.

To get over his problems, what gemstone should be suggested to him? Should he rather wear a stone for Moon to bring a necessary strength to his Lagna lord? Or, should he further wear a stone to fortify the position of Sun to take care of both 2nd and 10th house. In my opinion, a pearl is more important. Sun is anyway powerful being close it its highest point of exaltation. It is always more important to strengthen the foundation of the building. In any case, it will be important for this individual to pray to Hanuman to ward off the bad effects of Shani in the 10th house.

    If the subject’s 7th aspect is inflicted, ie if either the subject health or partners health is troubling then the 7th house needs to be strenghtened if no inflication is observed then Strenghtening satrun would be not effective other than making the subjects decission making unstable, influence of friendly planet on the 7th house or on the Sun/Satrun combination can be considered and strenghtned instead.

    Dear Kshitiji,

    You are right that the foundation should be strong and in that sense “pearl” the stone for Moon should be suggested to the native. But IMHO there is another point to be considered. That is, if the person is above 40-45 years old then results from Chandra lagna will be more prominent so the yoga karaka from Moon that is Saturn should be strengthened for this native. Though the age and present dasa of the native is not given, it could be found that the person may be going through or about to start the Saturn dasa now because the Moon is in the middle of mrighashira star owned by Mars leaving the horoscope with half of the Mars dasa balance at birth. As you said Sun is anyway strong so not required to strengthen him further.

    Respected Sir,
    Lgnesh Moon is in 12 house as borders of the very 12th house are from Taurus 25 to Gemeni 27. Lagnesh is exhalted so lagna is already having strength. Although troublesome it will give good results finally.
    Secondly Saturn is with the exhalted lord of 2nd house viz Sun. Although Saturn is Debiliated it can harm Sun no doubt. Jupiter has lost strength due to his being in 3rd house in Virgo. But Exhalted Venus is having its 50% straight drishti on it so it adds power to it or which is a plus point.
    Again in Sudarshana chakra dhana bhava lord is exhalted which is plus point. Person should wear Blue Saphire i.e. Nilam in right hand and should try to overcome prabdha by anarabdha.
    So far as I think he should not have financial troubles.
    That’s what I think
    Rest you know better.
    With highest regard,
    Niranjan Bhate

    Hi Kshitiji

    In my opinion lets discuss the problems first he is having because without knowing it we can’t go for remedies:

    Here is my observations:( of his problems )
    ill health, problems in youth and loss of hard earrned money;
    unreliable friends wavering like a chameleon;
    and very importantly problems to wife also.

    Please confirm on this.

    Think, pearl or moonstone should be good. Ruby in my opinion is not required – more so because it owns house # 2 and as such is a markesh.

    Major period, minor period details along with placement of Jupiter, Rahu, Ketu is required for complete solution.

    I think the person, whose chart you have given here, can wear a coral as Mars, is the rayayogakarak for his chart … I won’t suggest it if Mars is exalted or placed in its own sign in his chart.

    The given information is more than sufficient to reconstruct the horoscope. The person is running Sat-Merc from mid-January 2010, and the dasa-bhukti are operating from the 10th house. Prima facie, it appears to be an issue with superiors.

    At the time of Kshitij’s post, Mars was in Cancer and Jupiter was in Aquarius. The transit of Jupiter into Pisces in early May 2010, and Mars into Leo around the end of May 2010, would have been beneficial for the bearer of this chart.

    Personally, I don’t think gemstone is needed. I would, if forced, suggest coral set in gold on the right hand ring finger. My hesitation would be borne out of the fact that Mars in in debility in transit, and the lords of the dasa-bhukti are enemies. As such, Mars is strong in the chart and well-placed in a trine, and exalted in navamsa, where he is the 9th lord in the 11th. Moon is placed in Mars’ star, while Venus (a first rate malefic for this lagna) is in a trine and aspected by Jupiter, nodal conjunctions not withstanding. The planets that are favourable for this lagna are all well placed, though the transits are obviously not helping.

    The lords of dasa-bhukti are enemies to Mars, the ruler of the suggested gemstone. (the dasa lord saturn and bhukti lord are great friends, while the ratna-lord is inimical).

    I have a question being a Kanya Lagna/Singh Rashi born and Jupiter in 2nd House would like to know how it will act in its Mahadasha ? Will it be a Marak ? Can it produce good result since 4th House is also belongs to Jupiter which is its Mool Trikona Sign i.e. Saggitareous and also Jupiter is in Saggitareous in Navmansh D9 chart.

    Regards, Varun

    Maraka(s) are the lord(s) of 2nd and 7th house, e.g. Venus alone is maraka for Aries Lagna, Mercury, Mars will be considered together to be marakas for Vrishabha lagna and so on. The planets located in 2nd house are not Maraka. For Kanya lagna, Jupiter as a benefic planet will suffer from Kendradhipati dosha. Please refer to the appropriate article on that topic. However, in isolation, Jupiter cannot act like marak.

    Dear Friend

    Your Query of helping the native is very much appreciated as Moon and Sun both are in trouble as they both are not able to help native even it they are in exalted sign. As Moon being 29.30 is in Void position so it is in helpless state and Sun is in touch of debilitated Saturn is not free to help the native. So what is to be needed is help from the other planets aspect. To give much more power 5L and 9L can help.
