Kind of sambandha (relation) between planets or other astrological elements of the chart when these are in sixth/eigth distance from each other.
ex. if Arudhapada and Darapada (A7) are in 6/8 relation then one can suffer in i) buisness ii) finances and iii) marriage depending on other positions in the chart.
Tip: if the lords of these are in good sambandha (kendra/kona) then this is altered and fortune flows. Same with koota analysis in graha-maitram.
MARANA KARAKA STHANA
Translated as place (sthana) where natural signification of planet (karaka) are dying (maraka). Position of planet in bhava which stands for opposite direction to graha leading to afflictied signification of planet and houses lorded by it. The affliction is less if karaka of that bhava is in trikona to Surya or Lagna.
These houses form the marana karaka sthana for the planets:
Surya – Vyaya bhava (twelfth) karaka of house: Shani
Chandra – Randhra bhava (eigth) karaka of house: Shani
Mangal – Vivaha bhava (seventh) karaka of house: Shukra
Budha – Vivaha (afflicting Kanya) and Matri bhava (affilicting Mithuna) (seventh and forth) karakas of houses: Shukra and Chandra
Guru – Parakrama bhava (third) karaka of house: Mangal
Shukra – Shatru bhava (sixth) karaka of house: Shani
Shani – Lagna (udaya) bhava (first) karaka of house: Surya
Rahu – Bhagya bhava (ninth) karaka of house : Jupiter
Ketu – Matri bhava (forth) karaka of house: Moon
Remedy for above placements in Rasi Chart is pratyadi deva of planet which is bhava karaka for the house where this dosha occurs.
Yoga of grahas (combination of planets) leading to penury and financial challenges formed by yuti, drsti or parivartana between Maraka and Dusthana lord.
Karaka : Shani
Yoga of grahas (combination of planets) ensuring one’s success in career life associated with high position, authority and political power.
Usually formed by yoga between Narayana and Lakshmi houses which are kendras and konas. Brhat Parasara Hora Śastra, Saravali and other Śastras provide whole lists of rajayogas.
Karaka : Surya
Position of planet in Navamsa which grants blessings of Brahma in the form of health, longevity and strenghting the Lagna indications like fame and popularity.
For planet in fiery signs (Mesha, Simha, Dhanus) in Rasi Pushkara Navamsas are: Thula and Dhanus.
For planet in watery signs (Karka, Vrscika, Meena) in Rasi Pushkara Navamsas are: Cancer and Virgo
For planet in airy or earthy signs (Mithuna, Thula, Kumbha, Vrsabha, Kanya, Makara) in Rasi Pushkara Navamsas are: Meena and Vrsabha.
Gochara (transit) of Shani in twelfth, first or second house from Moon, Lagna or Arudha pada.
Cause of suffering durings its period is related to overexcitement caused by vayu-tattva in the manas (mind).
This can be analysed (like all transits) in Rasi and Vargas, so to judge if Sade-Sati will afflict career aspects of life we need to check Moon position in Dasamsa.
Sade Sati in Rasi is more or less connected to health aspects, and for all other aspects Tulya-Gochara should be applied.
From Lagna one is proned to commit wrong actions and wrong surrounding like vastu. From Moon bad health and lack of support from Arudhapada career problems, and social circle can go against the native.
Remedies are based on the house: twelfth – fasting; Lagna – mantra : om namo bhgavate rudraaya; second house – Ganesha worship with Glaum beeja.
Siva and every Rudra avatara can be worshipped for sade-sati. Sri Hanuman sadhana is also one of the choice.
DIG BALA – DIRECTIONAL STRENGTH OF GRAHA
Saravali (4.35) : Jupiter and Budha are stong in Lagna; Sun and Mars in tenth house. Moon and Venus in forth house. Shani in seventh house. Tradtion taught us that Rahu gets digbala in seventh whilst Ketu in the tenth house. Second and twelfth house from these points have ‘some’ dig bala. These houses seen from Arudha pada shows physical directions which are auspicious for the native. For example: If shukra is in forth house from Arudhapada then South East direction will be source of success and satisfaction for the native.
Lords of directions:
Su Indra Ve Agni Ma Yama Ra Nirrti Sa Varuna Moon Vayu Me Kubera Ju Isaana
Kantaka means nail, thorn and is what Shani represents.
Gochara of Shani in first, fort and eight from Lagna, Moon, Arudhapada. These positions make Shani aspect tenth bhava which brings chaos to career field.
If present also in Jagannath Drekkana can aflict seriously one’s karma-yoga.
The position in the eight house is considered the worst as the aspect is also on the fifth house.
When tenth house is aspected then the skills fall.
If Dasa is good during this gochara then it will give setback and if the dasa is also bad then its the cause of failure.
Remedies are Rudra worship, reciting third anuvaka of Chamakam, Baudanya Rudra Mantra with Abhishek.
GRAHAS AND THEIR LORDS
The name of 12 rashis and their lordship is as under :- Mesha Mangal Vrishabha Shukra Mithuna Buddha Karka Chandra Simha Surya Kanya Buddha Tula Shukra Vrishchika Mangal/ Ketu Dhanu Guru Makara Sani Kumbha Sani / Rahu Meena Guru

Relation of two planets which can be formed by yuti (75%), graha drsti (50%) or parivartana (100%). Shubha yoga gives auspicious events, whilst ashubha yoga brings misfortune. Among the popular one’s dhana gives wealth, daridra – penury; rajayoga brings success in undertakings and influential position; dhimanth yoga brings intellectual skills and recognition in the same; kalpavrska yoga gives fulfillness of desires; all these and many more are laid down by Rishis in the Jyotisha-Śastra
Aspect. Main important one’s are graha drsti and rasi drsti. Graha drsti shows desires and refers to internal aspects defining iccha shakti; rasi drsti is permament and refers to knowledge and strength. All planets have seventh house graha drsti except Ketu, as he doesnt have head and drsti means to see (drs). Additionaly: Jupiter – 5 & 9 Shani – 3 & 10 Mangal – 4 & 8 These are purna drstis and refer to all four pada’s (ayanas). Brhat Parasara Hora Śastra also provides informations about pada-drsti’s. In Rasi Drsti all fixed signs aspect movable signs except the adjacent one, movable signs aspect all fixed signs except adjacent one; dual signs aspect each other mutually. Rasi drsti’s are sometimes called Jaimini aspects but this is misleading as Paraśara also taught this type of drsti.
Conditions to be present are as follows:
– exaltation in Navamsa (100%)
ex. Sun in Thula Rasi and Mesha Navamsa. (being in seventh Navamsa)
– lord of debilitation sign for debilitated graha must be in kendra to either Moon or Lagna (25%)
ex. for neecha Surya it will be Shukra.
– lord of exaltation sign for debilitated graha must be in kendra to either Moon or Lagna (25%)
ex. for neecha Surya it will be Mangal.
– planet which gets exalted in debilitation sign for that neecha planet must be in kendra either to Moon or Lagna (25%)
ex. for neecha Surya it will be Shani.
Based on the above without uccha-amsa (exaltation in Navamsa) planet can be raised to 75% of strength.
1. Balaavastha – based on degrees and showing the state based on age.
0 to 6 for odd signs and 24 to 30 for even signs – Balaavastha (infant) (1/4 strength)
6 to 12 for odd signs and 18 to 24 for even signs – Kumaraavastha (youthful) (1/2 strength)
12 to 18 for odd and even signs Yuva (infant) (full strength)
18 to 24 for odd signs and 6 to 12 for even signs – Vriddhaavastha (advanced) (little strength)
24 to 30 for odd signs and 0 to 6 for even signs – Mrtyuavastha (deceased) (no strength)
A planet in own decanate gives virtues, in own Navamsa – famous. Saptamsa svakshetra bestows courage, wealth and fame. Helpfulness and devotion comes from Dwadasamsa own sign. Trimsamsa relates to qualities. (Saravali 5.31)
Branch of astrology related to time of initiating activities. Śastra provides information that when the bhava controling particular enterprise is strong at the start then it will bestow success. Connection to year lord will give 25%, month lord 50%, varesh (lord of the day) 75% and horesh 100% success (Saravali 7.6).
Branch of astrology related to analysis of chart drawn at the moment of querry known also as horary astrology.
Naisargika (natural) significator of house which describes its meaning and is useful for deciphering level of blessings & curses for the bhava and bhava lord. Below we will find the list based on traditional teachings as in other sources we will find Mangal being the main karaka for sixth house, here Shani is treated as the main karaka for all dusthana.
The strongest planet in Vivaha-bhava in Navamsa or Darapada/Upapada in R will show the type of marriage for the person.
