                                                                               Benefits of Vedic Mantra ChantingWhen a mantra is chanted in rhythmic tone with ups and downs, they create a melodious effect in the body . This effect can be defined as the Neuro-linguistic effect. If you know the meaning it has got an additional effect which is known as Neuro-linguistic (NLE) + Psycholinguistic effect (PLE). Lot of Research studies have been carried out by many and important… results derived by one of the famous professors Dr. T. Temple Tutler, of the Cleveland University, USA on these effects are remarkable. The NLE and PLE effects are due to the production and spreading of curative chemicals in the brain. These curative chemicals give smoothening and curing effect in the body. Thus mantra chanting is no way a superstition. It can also be directly called as mantra therapy in modern words.

Listening to mantras directly lowers blood pressure, normalizes heart beat rate, brain wave pattern, adrenalin level, even cholesterol level. That is the reason why modern doctors advise the people under high tension to sit and listen to music or mantras for few minutes. This has become an accepted procedure just like the yoga and Pranayam practices. Even chanting the kirtans, melodious bhajans, songs, etc., have the good effect almost similar to the NLE and PLE. How ever there should a melodious pattern for that. The music/ song/mantra should never be hard/ harsh/rough/ etc. The speed also should have a smoothening effect for example even Gayatri mantra chanting should be done at the range of 4 – 8 numbers per minute, Om Namo Narayanaaya at 38 -62 and Om Namah Sivaaya at 42 – 68 range per minute.

Chanting the mantras everyday is excellent and important at a particular time. In physics the time, space and observer are the three important factors. Exactly like that the time, space and the person connected with chanting/listening mantras are three important factors for deriving benefit of mantras. Hence sareera shuddhi, aahara shuddhi, mana shuddhi, vaak shuddhi and karma shuddhi are essential for deriving the full benefit of chanting the mantra. Also the place where you are sitting should give calming effect, comfortable feeling etc. The ideal timings are the prabhata sandhya and saayam sandhya. (Morning & evening) Group chanting is excellent. Absolutely no mistake is expected in Vedic mantra chanting. When you are sick due to ill health or old age, one need not worry too much about his incapability of chanting the mantras. Mantras are chanted for solving our problems and for positive effects but mantra chanting/ not chanting should not become another problem for us. The ideal sound for mantra chanting can be maintained if possible at radius 7 meters. Vedic mantras chanting is not easy so it is advised not to chant without the guidance from a guru.

The law of Karma

 (written by mr jitender kumar)

The law of Karma:There is a universal law of divine justice called the law of karma. All our good or bad actions are stored as Sanchita Karmas (accumulated effects of our actions). A part of this long accumulated karmas, which is destined to fructify during the present incarnation is known as Prarabdha Karma, which is indicated in the form of the birth chart of a native. Some part of the Prarab……dha Karma, is not very strong and the ill-effects due to this can be partially or fully cured by some remedial measures. An expert astrologer needs to pinpoint the offending or weak planet and then prescribe an appropriate remedy.Navagrahas and other Grahas by their different position in Birth chart only represent the destined path and they deliver the results according to Sanchit Karmas. Now the question “If every thing is fixed, then whats the use Remedies?”. Bramha ji has blessed blessed Navagraha that who worship Navagrahas, Navagrhas should fullfil the native’d desires. Whenever a remedies is performed, by that in actual we do new karmas or try to please mahaprakriti in one or other form. The new Karmas in the form of remedies results in auspicious things which help to over the difficulties.

Dasha Phal

1. A planet shall give the results of the house it owns. For example, if a planet if fifth lord, then it will give progeny or power in its dasa.

2. A planet gives results (either good or bad) as per the functional significations as per the following guidelines:

a. Whichever house the planet is placed

b. Whichever house the planet aspects

c. Whichever house lord it is placed with

d. Whichever house lord it aspects

During the dasa of a planet, the natural significance (naisargika karakatva) gains or suffer based on whether the placement of the planet is auspicious or inauspicious.

The results will be auspicious if

i. the planet is placed in Exaltation, Mulatrikona, Own house, or friends house

ii. placed with benefics/ friends

iii. aspected by benefics

iv. hemmed between benefics

The results will be inauspicious if

i. the planet is placed in debilitation, enemy sign

ii. placed with malefics

iii. aspected by malefics

iv. hemmed between malefics

3. A planet is capable of giving results as per its functional or natural significations either in the dasa or antardasa or smaller periods. The functional significations are based on the lordship, placement and yogas this planet would have in the horoscope. The natural signification is based on what they signify naturally such as Venus signify marriage and relationship, Jupiter signify progeny etc.

4. Normally a planet would not confer the result (either auspicious or inauspicious) in its own antardasa. They do so in the antardasa of the planet associated with it. By association following things are meant.

a. Conjunction

b. Planet aspecting the dasa lord

c. Planet having subha-argala on the dasa lord

d. Planet exchanges position (either rasi, nakshatra or navamsa) with the dasa lord

e. Any planets who share the same dharma as of the dasa lord. The following planets share the same dharma as of the dasa lord.

i. All saumya grahas (Jupiter, Venus, well associated Mercury and strong Moon (in paksha bala) have the same dharma

ii. All papa grahas (Saturn, Mars, Sun, badly associated Mercury and weak Moon)have the same dharma

iii. Yogakaraka- The other planet involved in the yoga, leaving the yogakaraka under consideration

Note: In all the cases, if the yoga is auspicious, then the auspicious results of the dasa lord is felt and vice-versa

Thus the mahadasa lord gives its results only in the antardasa which is suitable.

5. The dasa of the yogakaraka shall have following results in different antardasas:

a. Antardasa of a related auspicious planet (yogakaraka or lord of trines), the results will be auspicious

b. Antardasa of related yogakaraka, the results will be very auspicious

c. Antardasa of related functional malefic planet (lord of the trisadayas and the eighth), the effect of the rajayoga would be extremely feeble

d. Antardasa of a related marakesh, only minor results would be present

e. Antardasa of a unrelated auspicious planet, the results would be moderately auspicious

f. Antardasa of unrelated functional malefic planet or marakesh, the results would be extremely inauspicious- however, some good results of the auspicious dasa lord shall also be felt

6. During the antardasa of a functional malefic (planets suffering with kendradhipatya dosa or the lords of the trisadaya or the eighth lord) planet, following results are felt:

a. The antardasa of a unrelated functional benefic/ yogakaraka, the results of would be inauspicious

b. The antardasa of a related functional benefic, the results would be inauspicious- lesser of the inauspicious dasa lord and more of the auspicious antardasa lord

c. The antardasa of the neutral planet shall give inauspicious results

d. The antardasa of related or unrelated functional malefic would be terrible- more so in the case of related planet

e. The antardasa of functional benefic in dasa of a marakesh, the person would not die, however the antardasa of an unrelated functional malefic can cause death.

f. In the dasa of Kendra lord or Trikona lord, the results of different antardasa would be:

g. If Kendra and Trikona lord are associated, the in the dasa of the Kendra lord, Trikona lord’s antardasa would be auspicious and vice- versa

h. If Kendra and the Trikona lords are not related, then in the dasa of Papa Kendra lord, the antar of Subha Trikona lord would be little auspicious, whereas the antar of papa Trikona lord would be inauspicious.

7. In addition, during the dasa of a subha Kendra lord, the antar of a papa Trikona lord would be little auspicious and the antar of a subha Trikona lord, the results would be predominantly auspicious.

8. In the dasa of Papa Trikona lord, the antar of subha Kendra lord would be auspicious and antar of papa Kendra lord would be little auspicious (provided the Trikona lord is not eighth lord simultaneously)

9. In the dasa of Subha Trikona lord, the antar of subha Kendra lord would be auspicious and the antar of the papa Kendra lord can be little auspicious, if it is associated with the Trikona lord. If there is no association between them, then the antar would be predominantly inauspicious.

10. The results of Antardasa in Dasas of the Nodes:

a. If the nodes are placed in Trikona, then the antar of the Kendra lords confer rajayoga. This is also true during the dasa of Kendra lord and antardasa of the nodes so placed in Trikona

b. Similarly if the nodes are placed in Kendra, the antar of the Trikona lords confer rajayoga. This is also true during the dasa of Trikona lord and antardasa of the nodes so placed in Kendra

c. If the nodes are placed in auspicious houses, then their antardasas in the dasa of a yogakakara or during the antardasa of a yogakaraka in their (nodes) dasa, the results are extremely auspicious

d. If the nodes are associated with the 8th / 12th house/ lords, then their dasa/ antardasa would be inauspicious

11. According to Phaladeepika, the dasa of a planet becomes inauspicious, if they fall in a particular sequence as mentioned below:

a. Saturn’s dasa happens to be 4th dasa

b. Mars’s dasa happens to be 5th dasa

c. Jupiter’s dasa happens to be 6th dasa

12. Dasa of planets placed in the Rasi Sandhi/ Gandanta is terrible to the house lorded by the planet and the natural significations of the planet. The trouble would pass by in a malefic antar and would be lesser during the benefic antar.

13. The dasa of sixth, eighth or twelfth is troublesome. The trouble is lesser if the lord is well placed in exaltation, mulatrikona, own sign or friend’s sign and would be more if badly placed in its debilitation sign or enemy’s sign.

14. During the dasa of a planet, the native is endowed with the nature and complexion of the dasa lord. The fiery planets would give brilliance, the watery planet would make one emotional and compassionate, the earthy planets make one hard working and the air planet would make the person thoughtful and philosophical. Along with this, the native would partake the guna of the dasa lord. Thus during the Jupiter, Sun and Moon’s dasa the native becomes sattvik, during the dasa of Venus and Mercury, the native becomes Rajasik and during the dasa of Mars and Saturn, the native becomes tamasik. More effect of the guna of planets on the native can be learnt from BPHS and Saravali.

15. The result of a planet going towards its exaltation increases as the dasa progresses and similarly, the dasa of a planet diminishes with progress of the dasa, if the dasa lord is going towards its debilitation (one sign behind the sign of debilitation)

16. Malefics give their results of its placement in a rasi during the first third part, the results of its placement in a bhava in the middle third and the results of its aspect in the last third of the dasa. Similarly Benefics give their results of their bhava in the beginning third, the result of rasi in the middle third and the aspects in the last third of the dasa.

17. When the dasa and the antar-dasa lords are placed in the 6th/ 8th or 12th from each other, these shows enmity, physical troubles, troubles from unknown sources etc. If the antar lord is a friend to the dasa lord or the Lagna lord and well placed in the sign, then the trouble would be lessened. On the contrary, if the dasa- antar lords are badly placed and the antar lord is an enemy to the dasa lord and/ or the Lagna lord then the antar would be very troublesome.

18. During the dasa of a planet, the house where the antar lord is placed the results of that house would be specifically felt. For example, if someone is running the dasa- antar of Sun- Moon; and Moon is placed in the 5th house from the dasa lord, them the 5th house effect would be specifically experienced. The good or bad results to be experienced related to that bhava would be based on whether or not the dasa and antar lords are well placed.

19. If the dasa lord is capable of give both good and bad results (such as a planet becoming an yogakaraka as well as maraca at the same time) by the virtue of its placement and yoga, then the good results would be felt during the antar of planets beneficially disposed and the negative results would be felt during to the antar of negatively disposed planets.

20. During the dasa of a planet, whichever house it transits from the Lagna, the result of that particular house would be specifically felt during such transit.

21. The results of the dasa are modified based on the transit of the dasa lords in different signs. If the dasa lord goes to an enemy’s sign or the sign of debilitation or the sign having lesser bindus (less than 4) in the dasa lord’s astakavarga, or the sign having lesser bindus in the sarva-astakavarga and in addition having transiting a malefic house (reckoned from Moon), then the effect would be extremely negative if the dasa is of an evil planet or if it is of an auspicious planet, then its auspiciousness would be greatly reduced.

22. On the contrary, if the dasa lord moves to its sign of exaltation/ mulatrikona/ own/ friend’s sign and / or in a sign with high astakavarga in the dasa lord’s astakavarga, then the effect of the dasa during that time would be extremely good, if the dasa is of an auspicious planet or lesser troublesome, if the dasa is an evil dasa.

23. The effect of the dasa planet can be seen in different areas of life from the Divisional charts related to that particular area of life. To understand this, one needs to study the divisional charts and then intelligently apply the dasa rules in those charts.

24. In the mahadasa of a planet, the antar would be good if:

a. The antar lord is a friend to the dasa lord

b. The antar lord is a friend to the lagna lord

c. The antar lord is well placed as reckoned from the dasa lord

d. The antar lord is related to the dasa lord

e. The antar lord is well placed as reckoned from the Moon.

25. The dasa of the 2nd and 7th lord from a bhava becomes the marakesh dasa for that bhava. If these planets are weak and afflicted then it would surely cause trouble to the significations of the bhava under consideration.

26. Similarly during the dasa of the 12th lord from a bhava, the native suffers losses related the bhava under consideration

27. During the dasa of the 8th lord from a bhava, the relations ruled by the concerned bhava suffers ill health, if the said planet is weakly placed and/ or afflicted

So you’ve had your horoscope done, and are dealing with the information you’ve gotten from the astrologer. There are strengths in the chart, and also weaknesses, and you’re wondering, “now what”? What can you do about it? Is there a way to counterbalance certain weaknesses, or increase strengths as much as possible? Indeed there is, and one of the easiest methods Vedic Astrologers use to derive noticeable results in a relatively short period of time is through the wearing of natural, untreated gemstones.

Gem therapy, or planetary gemology, dates back to ancient Indian, Greek, Egyptian, and Jewish cultures. Men and women would wear gems for the potencies they imparted to them, and not solely for their monetary value. Kings and Queens would wear gemstones in their crowns and elsewhere on the body as a means of expanding their influence throughout their kingdoms. Of course the gems royalty wore were extremely large, and of the highest quality imaginable to have such extremely powerful effects, but gems are still be utilized today by the general populace at large for all kinds of beneficial effects in life.

The Indian scriptures called the “Vedas” contain the most complete descriptions and scientific, as well as practical knowledge, of gemstones. These sacred Sanskrit texts give specific details about various gems’ potencies, as well as the method of prescription for their proper medical and astrological usage. In ancient Vedic culture, as well as other advanced cultures, gems became the means for directing certain subtle forces of nature. Particular properties of gems have also been recognized in today’s modern technological world, such as in quartz crystals that are used in timepieces, and diamonds that are being used in lasers and supercomputers. As a matter of fact over a billion people in the world today have taken advantage of Vedic gem therapy to enhance their lives physically, mentally, or spiritually. Only in the west does this seem to be a “new age” concept, for realistically speaking there is extremely little verifiable textual knowledge of this science from the ancient cultures of the western world. In many eastern countries this science has been practiced for thousands of years, dating back to the earliest recorded histories.

Planetary gemology, or gem therapy used in conjunction with a person’s Vedic horoscope for gem prescription, is based on the ancient system of Vedic astrology, an extremely accurate and enlightening system based on the fixed positions of stars and constellations (the sidereal zodiac). This system is very precise in determining a person’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as the present direction of one’s destiny for this lifetime. The positions of the planets at the time of our birth reflect the karma that we bring with us into this life from our past actions and experiences in previous incarnations. They represent the multitude of energies in the universe, each planet controlling a different form of cosmic energy that is transmitted throughout the solar system. These transmissions of energy are responsible for formations of life on this planet, as well as our own bodies and even minds. The orbiting planets receive and give specific wavelengths of energy that maintain the order of the solar system. These energies are transmitted as light.

Another name for Vedic astrology is “jyotish”, or the “science of light”. There are seven basic visible cosmic rays emanated by the seven major planets, Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn and two invisible rays (ultraviolet and infrared) emanated by the Moon’s north and south nodes, called Rahu and Ketu. The signs of the zodiac, as well as the different houses in the astrological horoscope, represent the different fields that the planetary energies react and move within, thereby giving us information of how these energies will let us “read” what our life experiences will be in this incarnation. We are able to understand the quality of this birth in the same way as the nature of a tree can be read from the seed it is born from. This karma is what will determine how our lives will manifest themselves. The planets will show inherent strengths in certain areas of life, as well as weaknesses that may inhibit our growth and indicate success in specific areas of life.

There is a complex system of remedial measures used in conjunction with Vedic astrology that allows one to increase the energies vibrated from certain planets to balance and bring harmony into one’s life. They are twofold, utilizing sound vibrations such as in the chanting of mantras, and increasing specific wavelengths of vibrations of light, which is the basis for gemstone therapy.

Different gemstones receive their potencies from the cosmic energies of different planets, thereby having different effects on the wearer. These gemstones are transmitters of electromagnetic energy from the different planets, depending on the stone, thereby having different effects on the wearer. They do this by absorption and reflection of light frequencies. The electromagnetic energy emanating from the gemstone reacts with the electromagnetic energy of the body to produce certain very specific effects. Which gems should be used must be determined through a careful analysis of the astrological horoscope (sidereal zodiac, equal house system only) by a qualified astrologer or planetary gemologist.

The new age practice of indiscriminately placing gemstone crystals all over the body can be extremely dangerous if the practitioner is not both well educated and sufficiently experienced in this science. Gem crystals are very powerful, and as easily as they can positively enforce electromagnetic fields of the body, they can disrupt them giving the opposite effect. This can cause physical and mental debilities, so one must be cautious as to how and which gemstones are used in this manner. Used incorrectly there can be disturbances on a subtle, astral level, as well as a physical one. Used correctly they can give a lift and greater potency to our lives in many ways, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Once you have had a careful analysis of your Vedic horoscope by an experienced and qualified astrologer, or planetary gemologist with the knowledge and expertise to correctly diagnose the weaknesses and strengths in the horoscopic chart, they will usually recommend a gemstone, or several gemstones, that will be beneficial for wearing throughout your life. The chosen stone/s may then be set in a ring, or pendant, so that the stone comes into contact with the skin. This allows them to best transmit these frequencies of light, or electromagnetic energy, to the cells in our bodies. This is done through the ions and electrolytes of the body on a cellular level. On a “subtle” level the cosmic colors of the gems are absorbed through the chakra system of the ethereal body. The reason the fingers are the best places to wear gems is the location of many physical and ethereal nerve centers there. We have seen amazing results in people’s lives through the use of gemstone therapy, the bottom line being greater energy and strength to combat negative karmic influences in their lives, and to maximize positive ones.

A word of caution: In order to be effective gems must be natural (not synthetic) and be untreated by heat or irradiation to improve their appearance, as is commonly done on most gems used in the jewelry trade for commercial purposes. Therefore you must know for sure that your source for your purchase has untreated gems and will guarantee this. The treatment of gemstones to enhance their physical beauty has long been an accepted practice in the gem and jewelry trade (especially heat treatment), and is not considered a deceptive practice unless a jeweler does not disclose the fact that the gem has been enhanced, if asked by a customer. We have had the unenviable engagement at times of explaining to a client that although the gem that they purchased is beautiful, as well as costly, it has no ability to transmit the planetary/cosmic energies, nor have any beneficial use whatsoever, except as a weaker form of color therapy alone. (The modern science of color therapy was derived from the ancient science of gemstone therapy.) It is not necessary to spend a fortune to obtain a gem that will give us the desired effects, and the wonderful thing about utilizing the potency of gemstones is that it is a one-time investment that requires no further “maintenance”, but for setting into a ring or talisman. Its potency will never diminish, and you have the gem working for your benefit for your entire lifetime.

The Planets are the main activating forces of karma and freewill in Vedic Astrology. The planets are called Graha, they are sun, moon, mars, mercury, jupiter, venus, saturn, rahu and ketu. Their sanskrit names are surya, chandra, kuja, mangala, muruga, budha, Guru, brihaspati, shukra and shani.

 
The Sun – The higher Sun is the Self or Soul, the lower is the expression of our false self or ego. Every heartbeat, thought, inspiration, act of photosynthesis or anything else real or imagined on Earth has been fueled by Sun’s power. His is the energy of confidence and power, consistency and inspiration. The strength of the Sun will show our inherent capacity for truth and transformation. The Sun is the only light in the chart, or in life. The other planets merely reflect the Sun’s Light. It is the ONE that connects all things – the ocean of light that is our true nature. As such it illuminates the path of truth, giving the strength to sacrifice our smaller desires so that we may purify and reclaim our Self as the highest truth.
Keywords: Soul’s energy, Confidence, consistency, Power, Self-growth and development, Ego, Father
The Moon – The higher Moon reflects the joy and sharing that comes with having peace of mind, the lower Moon shows the neglect and withdrawal we experience when faced with losing that peace. The Moon is the Soul as it descends into matter, and it is our connection to this soul through sense mind and body.  It is where we are the most easily hurt and the most vulnerable. The Moon shows the quality of our nurturing and our capacity to nurture others. It shows the clarity of our perceptions and how they are distorted as well as our basic desire to have peace of mind. The Moon is like the window we are looking through. Whatever affects the Moon, deeply affects our life and outlook.
Keywords: Peace of mind, connection or neglect, other people, the public, Mother, nurturing

Mars – The higher Mars is the spiritual warrior, stopping at nothing to know the truth so as to free the soul from bondage. The Lower Mars is the combative and opinionated nature to which we can be reduced. Mars gives us the discipline and focus to improve and transform our life through right action based on our principles. When his principled energy is directed inward toward higher purposes, he brings the courage to face our internal weaknesses and improve our lives. When directed toward outer and lower purposes he is the very energy we are struggling against. This lower nature creates a paradigm of security based on our opinions, not on God’s law (Dharma). These limiting opinions will bring us into conflict with others and takes us further from the truth he is seeking.     
Keywords: Physical strength, Focus, opinions, aggression, logic, discipline, recklessness, friends and Brothers

Mercury – The higher Mercury is the God of discrimination, and the capacity of the mind to be fair and balanced. The lower Mercury can drain our mental energy through over stimulation and trivia, leaving us unable to recognize the important details to focus on and strengthen. Mercury is discrimination, for either good or bad. Proper discrimination implies neutrality; such is the nature of Mercury. This neutrality can lead to a disconnected, ungrounded intellect or one prone to bad influences.  His nature is also to play, be curious and experiment, as it is through these activities that we hone our skills and through proper speech and clear communication that we are able to manifest something tangible from them. He governs the detail-oriented nature of the mind. Mercury shows if we will become ensnared in the details or organize them into a paradigm of truth, which leads to our freedom.  
Keywords: Speech and communication, skills, intellect, dexterity, equanimity, neutrality, curiosity, playfulness

Jupiter – The higher Jupiter is God’s grace, wisdom, ethics aligned with right behavior and optimism. The lower Jupiter can be a haughty showman, concerned with appearance, status and the admiration of others. Jupiter is our capacity to do good, and to always wish to choose the good over the bad. He is where we expand in life and want to share God’s grace. Through wealth, children and education we expand externally; through faith and valuing God’s grace we expand internally. Jupiter rules all of these domains. We all have a higher vision of ourselves that we are expanding toward -Jupiter shows that vision and how we would like it to play out in our lives. Jupiter gives us the hope that things will get better. A weak Jupiter will either lack hope or be unrealistic in expressing it. A foolhardy optimism is possible. Jupiter aligned with our sense of duty will allow for our higher vision to not only lead us externally but also expand internally.
Keywords: Knowledge, Expansion, (children, education, spirituality) teachers and teaching, Optimism

Venus – The higher Venus is Divine Love and devotion through surrender, the lower Venus is hedonism and over indulgence in sensory pleasures. Much of our human life is learning to transmute our physical desires, from the animal (sensory pleasure) to the human (human love) to the God (Spiritual devotion). Venus is key to this transformation as she rules all three of these important qualities of life. Her Sanskrit name means “sperm”, as it is she who shows how much vitality we will ultimately have. In truth we all want the same thing in life, which is to be happy.  Venus is the planet that gives us happiness, but maturity with Venus is learning to find happiness in the things that replenish our energy, not drain it. The main issue with Venus is how high of a price we are willing to pay for our happiness. Part of this discipline is learning to think of the needs of others, thus the first lesson of Venus is to respect and value others needs as much as our own. A strong Venus will not pay too high of a price for happiness and thus not leave our selves and others feeling devalued through the selfish pursuit of our desires. From this point of selflessness a deeper devotion to God emerges. 
Keywords: Pleasure, love, sex, happiness, sensual desire, service, devotion, courtesy, manners, vitality, respect, improvement

Saturn – The higher Saturn is a Monk in meditation, the lower is a cold, ruthless individual, disconnected from his feeling nature and other people. It is through Saturn that we come to experience ourselves as a separate being and make peace with our limitations or not, the ultimate limitation being death itself. Saturn rules the nervous system and through it creates painful complexes that reinforce our separation from God, through form and concept. Anxiety, fear, sorrow, insecurity, loss and life’s painful lessons are all ways Saturn teaches us to give up attachment to form and not take things so personally. His neuroses will teach us perseverance and Self-control, as we will hide behind a wall of self-sufficiency to avoid being seen in our state of weakness. However, at some point something much bigger than what we can control will force us to our knees, like the death of a loved one, a chronic illness or an excessive amount of responsibility that was our distraction. These crises force our pain into the open where we must face them. Those who cannot learn from life and the hard lessons of Saturn will be reduced to bitterness and foolishness in old age. The greatness of Saturn is that he teaches us sensitivity to others and a respect for all; for once we have suffered we become sensitive to all who suffer. Once his ability for control is properly aligned with dharmic purposes, Saturn gives the perseverance and concentration to put into practice what we have learned, not just acknowledge it mentally. He allows us to be alone to work through our salvation, which is the only possibility. 
Keywords: Ambition, fear, responsibility, the perseverance and capacity for hard work, stress, isolation, Old people

Rahu – Rahu, the north node of the moon, shows the main forces of desire that have compelled us to take a body in this lifetime. Rahu represents material desire, but because he is not a physical planet he operates on the subconscious level. He distorts our perceptions and colors the world according to his desires. He tends to obliterate the essence of things, focusing on their material substance. He is our deepest subconscious material desire. Rahu obsesses over the things we need to learn so we can eventually be freed of them. There are certain lessons we can only learn in a physical body, in the physical world, and rahu’s obsessions indicate those things. Rahu will tend to feel like Saturn in that both of these planets bring stress and fear. The stresses of Saturn are based on the tangible known things in the universe that can go wrong, the health, the income, etc.; rahu feels stress and worry about the many unknown, undeveloped qualities of our mind and experience. His obsessions are all attempts to assuage the undeveloped part of our consciousness. Yet Rahu can be very spiritual when powerful and aligned with dharmic planets. When we desire truth, Rahu can bring Spiritual progress very quickly. Rahu affects all Spiritual growth in one way or another, as it is he who represents matter and the purification of matter.   
Keywords: Obsession, attachment, distorted perception, blowing things out of proportion, psychic ability 

Ketu – Ketu, the south node of the moon, is the other half of the demon, the headless body. Where Rahu obsesses over the things of this world, Ketu seeks to be freed from them. Rahu is material and loses the essence of things in their substance. Ketu perceives the essence of things but is unsatisfied with anything substantive in the world. Whereas Rahu shows where we are obsessed to grow and experience new things, Ketu is where we may want to fall back on familiar patterns and become stuck in them. Ketu brings doubt and a sharp criticism to the areas of life that he sees, resulting in us looking ever higher to find the truthful answers to them. Yet he is eternally unsatisfied, noticing only what is missing from whatever he is influencing, thus those areas of life will be especially hard to “work on” as we will be filled with our deepest levels of doubt and self – loathing where Ketu is concerned. Ketu will tend to feel like Mars in that both Ketu and Mars are critical and opinionated. Ketu has the same sharp and focused nature. His criticism is based on past skill and it is where we will fall back on a set of ideas of how things should or should not be. These ideas close him off to the greater and necessary possibilities that must be considered in order for the karmas with him to be completed. Ketu is the completer of karmas and shows where we must “lose our head” around what we have experienced and mastered, in order to eventually be freed of it. 
Keywords: Dissatisfaction, detachment, solitude, intense scrutiny, liberation, explosive nature.

THE POINT OF DEEPEST FALL NOTE: What we are discussing is more philosophical than practical, and application should be tempered with the proverbial pinch of salt. INTRODUCTION In an ideal world, nobody wants to have any afflicted graha in his chart, but then again, we do not live in an ideal world. Among all the possible afflictions, perhaps nothing scares a person more than knowing that some graha is neecha in his chart. Immediately, people start looking out for neecha bhanga or better still, neecha bhanga raja yoga. If one may compare a graha to one’s own eyes, then a neecha graha is like an eye incapable of seeing clearly. Neecha bhanga may then be compared to using spectacles to improve one’s vision, but, just as spectacles cannot give perfect vision, similarly, neecha bhanga can never completely overcome all ills. Neecha bhanga raja yoga is like using binoculars, but just as one cannot go around with a pair of binoculars always pressed to one’s eyes, similarly, even neecha bhanga raja yoga cannot always deliver good results. BEYOND THE BASICS What is it that makes a graha neecha? We need to understand this thing first. For this, we must look beyond the obvious fact of “graha X is neecha in rasi Y.” To get to the heart of the matter, we should look at the point where a graha is at its lowest ebb, and study the related issues carefully. While the relationship between the neecha graha and the lord of the rasi in which it is neecha is of paramount importance, we could gain further by studying the relationship between the neecha graha and the nakshatra in which it is neecha. This helps us to finetune the results, and enhances our lucidity. At another level, we could consider the nakshatra pada in which a graha is neecha, and study the lord of that pada, which will correspond to the lord of the navamsa in which the said pada falls. For additional illumination, we could also consider the drekkan in which a graha is fallen. Why, some might wonder, are we studying the drekkan after studying the nakshatra and the navamsa? The reason is simple – of all the divisions, only the drekkans have descriptions, and an understanding of these visual metaphors can perhaps enable us to understand the true affliction of a neecha graha that much better. The descriptions of the drekkans given herein have been taken from Shri BV Raman’s book “Hindu Predictive Astrology.” FEAR IS THE KEY To understand a neecha graha, it is best to assume that some form of fear possesses it. In a way, this may seem funny—after all, what could perhaps cause fear to Sani, who himself causes fear to all men? Technically speaking, a graha many not be “afraid” in the sense people are afraid of tigers or the Inspector of Taxes, but there is an affliction caused by the fact that something that the graha stands for is not in good shape. If this were not the case, then there is no reason to pronounce that the graha is neecha! Understanding the cause of the fear of the graha may take us one step closer to comprehending what is actually wrong. Therefore, we will start with the fear concept, not because a graha is “afraid,” but because fear is something that we all understand so well. After all, does not knowing that we have a neecha graha in our chart make us feel scared? THE NEECHA GRAHAS 1. SURYA Surya is at the point of deepest fall at 10 degrees, Tula rasi. This corresponds to Swati, which is ruled by Rahu, in the 2nd pada, which is ruled by Sani, and in the 2nd drekkan, which is also ruled by Sani. Both Rahu and Sani are inimical to Surya, and their combined might means that Surya feels very low indeed. Sani is humble and relates to equality, and so does Rahu as per “Sani vad Rahu,” and Surya, as the king, cannot digest this! The description of the 2nd drekkan of Tula is: “A man hungry and thirsty, with the face of a vulture, and attached to his wife and children.” In the above context, it is worth noting that Sani is Surya’s son, and the vulture is said to be Sani’s mount. 2. CHANDRA Chandra is at the point of deepest fall at 03 degrees, Vrichaka rasi. This corresponds to Vishaka, which is ruled by Guru, in the 4th pada, which is ruled by Chandra, and in the 1st drekkan, which is ruled by Kuja. It is easy to understand Surya’s neechatva, but Chandra’s is more perplexing. Why is he neecha in association with Guru and Kuja, with both of whom he forms the Gaja Kesari Yoga and the Chandra Mangala Yoga respectively? Guru represents wisdom, and Chandra, who personifies the mind, doesn’t like wisdom, and prefers pleasurable pursuits. Chandra in his own pada means the mind dwelling on itself, not positively as in the “I consciousness” but in terms of trying to fulfil the pleasures that the mind suggests. Chandra is also afflicted by the rashness of Kuja. The description of the 1st drekkan of Vrichaka is: “A beautiful young woman, quite naked, emerging out from an ocean towards the shore, feet bound up by a serpent.” This is a sarpa drekkan, and the snake allusion indirectly links it to Rahu and Ketu, the nodes, whom Chandra fears. 3. BUDHA Budha is at the point of deepest fall at 15 degrees, Meena rasi. This corresponds to Uttarabadra, which is ruled by Sani, in the 4th pada, which is ruled by Kuja, and in the 2nd drekkan, which is ruled by Chandra. Budha is a highly intellectual graha, and it cannot stand the gloom of Sani, or the anger of Kuja, or the fickleness of Chandra, all of which are inimical to rational thought. No wonder it is neecha! The description of the 2nd drekkan of Meena is: “A beautiful woman, sailing in a boat with long flags towards the other coast.” The flag is particularly interesting because it flies at the highest point, and represents the acme. Ironically, with Budha fallen, intelligence, which differentiates humans from beast, no longer reigns supreme! 4. SUKRA Sukra is at the point of deepest fall at 27 degrees, Kanya rasi. This corresponds to Chitra, which is ruled by Kuja, in the 2nd pada, which is ruled by Budha, and in the 3rd drekkan, which is ruled by Sukra himself. Sukra represents highly refined things, and this is the good aspect. The negative thing about Sukra is his excessive pursuit of pleasure, which leads to a lowering of morals and general dissipation. In particular, Kuja corrupts Sukra and turns love to lust. The fact that Budha owns the concerned pada is also inimical to Sukra though Budha is friendly with Sukra because those who love pleasures do not like listening to reason. The drekkan being owned by Sukra implies a vortex of pleasure, which can only lead to lassitude. The description of the 3rd drekkan of Kanya is: “A fair woman, with a yellow cloth on her body and exposing her breasts and going to a sacred place.” What an apt description! Sukra is feminine, yellow represents prosperity, and as a Brahmin graha, the visit to the sacred place is also appropriate. The vulgar reference to the breasts implies the profaning of the sacred, caused by Sukra being neecha. 5. KUJA Kuja is at the point of deepest fall at 28 degrees, Kataka rasi. This corresponds to Aslesha, which is ruled by Budha, in the 4th pada, which is ruled by Guru, and in the 3rd drekkan, which is also ruled by Guru. Kuja is a warrior, and doesn’t like to heed either Budha’s intelligence or Guru’s wisdom. All he wants to do is fight meaninglessly, and this makes him neecha. The description of the 3rd drekkan of Kataka is: “A man in a boat amidst an ocean, with a serpent around his waist.” This is a sarpa drekkan, and indirectly refers to Rahu and Ketu, who, being daemons, are inimically disposed towards the commander of the Gods. Since there is no reference to a storm, we may safely assume that a boat in an ocean depicts serenity and perhaps boredom because there is nothing to do but steer the boat. Since there are no prospects of war, Kuja is highly frustrated! 6. GURU Guru is at the point of deepest fall at 05 degrees, Makara rasi. This corresponds to Uttarashada, which is ruled by Surya, in the 3rd pada, which is ruled by Sani, and in the 1st drekkan, which is also ruled by Sani. Guru is a unique graha in Jyotish because it is the only graha that is not treated as an enemy by any of the other grahas. So, it is a little intriguing to consider why it is neecha. Perhaps, it is neecha because both the grahas concerned, Surya and Sani, can’t stand each other. Also, Surya is arrogant and Sani represents humble activities, and neither of them seems too capable of appreciating the wisdom that is so dear to Guru. The description of the 1st drekkan of Makara is: “A man with much hair, pig-bodied and faced, and carrying a rope and a net.” Nothing threatening about the above, but it hardly seems to be the height of wisdom! 7. SANI Sani is at the point of deepest fall at 20 degrees, Mesha rasi. This corresponds to Bharani, which is ruled by Sukra, in the 3rd pada, which is also ruled by Sukra, and in the 3rd drekkan, which is ruled by Guru. Sani is responsible for grief, and as such, he doesn’t appreciate Sukra’s propensity for merrymaking. Guru symbolises wisdom and so may be called a good teacher, but Sani is more practical. The lessons he teaches are learnt in the University of Life, and not from books. Thus, Sani may not be very pleased by Guru’s teachings, because he likes to teach people by humbling them with sorrow and suffering. The description of the 3rd drekkan of Mesha is: “A cruel hearted man, red in colour, active, wearing red garments, unprincipled and angry.” The above description seems to fit Kuja, who is inimical to Sani, to a T! AFTERWORD It would be arrogant to presume that the above descriptions are accurate, and represent the only way of looking at the neecha state of a graha. However, it is a good starting point, and the author hopes that even points above that are not agreeable to the wise will promote thought, and lead all of us to greater clarity and to the light, which is Jyotish. * * *

• Dear friends,

The pratikool-anukool theory making rounds and giving certificates to each and all on payment of some money, does not hold ground, as you will read in the following lines submitted by me.

a) Should we recommend gemstones for functional malefic planets? functional benefic planets only? or Both?

None.

b) Should we recommend gemstones for planets placed in 6th, 8th and 12th Houses? In which conditions?

Normally not. But essentially if these planets placed in 6th, 8th or 12th are placed in nakshatras who are owners of the wealth giving houses or desire fulfillments(2nd and 11th ). (Which is what one requires in Life, so lets be honest here).

c) Should we use Divisional charts for recommending gemstones instead of Rashi chart? For example: Dashamsha for Career?

No.

d) Should we recommend precious and semi-precious gemstones and leave the decision to the user to decide which one to wear?

Yes. (I personally do not recommend semi-precious)

e) Should we recommend gemstone only for the lords of Lagna, 5th and 9th? If so, why not others, if they are benefic and placed well?

The 9th if a badhaksthana for a Fixed Lagna must not be recommended. One must not suggest Lagna Lord Gem if it is placed in nakshatra of the planet owning 8th or 12th. Because then the Lagna Lord will be actually giving the results of these negative houses. For a person who is in service the Gemstone for the 5th lord should not be recommended because then he may begin facing problems in his job, since the job is signified by the 6th house and by wearing the Gemstone for the 5th Lord one is actually strengthening the 12th house from the 6th.

BUT for a person looking for good health , he must be suggested a Gemstone for the 5th Lord, because the 5th signifies Cure.

So there are Gemstones to be recommended for a specific purpose too depending on the current problem. For instance one not getting a job if badly looking for one, may be suggested a Gemstone for the planet signifying the 6th Lord, but eventually after acquiring one, has to remove the same, or else would also increase the ill health propensities in his nativity.

Even the Lord of the 8th can give superb results if well placed, and even the Lord of the Lagna can give bad results, so there is nothing like some mandatory rule to be followed in this matter.

f) Which gemstones do you recommend for each planet? Example: Red Ruby and Red Garnet for Sun. Emerald, Peridot, Green Jade for Mercury.

The Original Gemstones. Ruby and Emerald. If the person cannot afford this, then let him keep the objects of the planets in his Shirt Pocket, like piece of Haldi , or some sugar for the Moon etc.

Gemstone recommending is an intricate science but now has become a like a Duplicate Rolex watch in hands of one and all.

At times Gems have to recommended for a temporary time, keeping the end(Result) in mind and once that is achieved,the Gem must be removed.

At times if one is not able to marry then one has to be suggested Gemstone for Planet signifying 2nd and 7th but would you allow the person to wear this, till he becomes old, when this same Gemstone would tend to strengthen to the maraka propensities for the native ?

The there are other problems to contend with too. For a newly married couple a green Emerald will not be favourable. Why ? Because it will reduce the sexual desires. Remember the basics ? Mercury is a Hermaphrodite Planet .

Then there are people who at the drop of the hat suggest The Pearl or the Moonstone immediately. Now if the Sun is the Lord of the Kundli or having Lordship of an imposrtant house in the Horoscope, would it make sense to wear a Pearl ? Or else if one is born on a Amavasya or a Poornima one should certainly note what would be the effects of wearing a Pearl before jumping to suggest this. There are other factyors like waning Moon and the waxing Moon the implications of which must be understood well before suggesting this Gem. Instead of bringing stability to mind, on the contrary it may cause depressions too. And by the way nobody in Real Life is so unstable that we need to suggest Gems for such frivilous matters which most astrologers do. “Your mind will become calm. You will be able to make better decesions. You will have peace of mind”. This is logicless talking. Because the other problems which may affect in a horde, would not be foreseen or one may not have the foreseight to observe these.

Even the above made suggestions would change strictly speaking if one goes for Original Cosmic colour therapy ,on which I wil put a note some other day or may not put up because its too exhaustive and technical. For Instance we think that the Pearl means white, but actually its Cosmic rays are made of Orange colour. We think Diamond as White but its Cosmic rays are of Indigo colours. If one has excess of Red(Pitta) Cosmic rays in his body then one has to counter it with Orange/Green(Kapha) Rays. This is related to the various Chakras in the body. For instance the Red Colour (Fire Element) represented by Ruby, rules the Manipur Chakra in the body , also known as the Solar/Abdominal Plexus. This will be affecting the Pranamaya Kosha. All the Gems are nothing but a Concentrated form of the Cosmic rays (like Gulab Jala made of Rose, or Vanilla Essence), and each Ray is linked to a particular wavelength (For ex. Red has a Wavelength Mu of 800-650) which affects the body, so wanton suggestion of Gems is a dangerous habit and carries a lot of rinabandhan on the Astrologer suggesting so.

When a person is born the Potential (Prarabhdha) is decided according to the PurvaPunaya and Purva Karma So It is also the Sanchit Karma. The Place and time and date are pre decided and it is absolute. Thro the shastras, the time and date and place of birth also gives clear indication of the environment in which the birth has taken place. This is very much decided by the Ascendent or the lagna which is the Most important and the single most important factor of the chart at Birth.

The person is born and he goes thru different phases of life.
1st Bhav Lagna gives the birthplace,
2nd Bhav gives the indication of family in which he is born, The place of his family (Rich Poor large small etc.),

7th Bhav is the first time in his life after birth he has a choice there is another person whose fate is also related to his life which gives indication of Partner’s birth place,

Upto 7th Bhav are the place where the native has his ownership of Home or place of living.
Bhavs from 1 to 7 represents the Mother earth herself. So these all are important in deciding the natives relation with the place.

12th Bhav represents the place of Spendings for Charity(Temple) or pleasures(theatre or Bed)  or Treatment (hosipitals) or Punishments(Jail) or exile(leaving the Country).
11th Bhav represents the place in which his all the gains or the Banks, Accumulations of wealth.
10th Bhav represents his actual working place in the public and society.
9th Bhav represents the long distance places for visiting for leisure or for higher knowledge for pilgrimage or long distance place for work, Also Called as Bhagya sthan.

9th to 12th are the Represents place of work and achieving providing for what is the aim of the life.

8th Bhav is the most important Bhav It is the balance between the work life and the home life. It decides the inheritance and life Longivity factors for the native. The Bhav also represents legal Matters or courtships, Marriage itself. So it legalizes the Native’s Whole life.  Justice.

In Nirayan astrology : 3, 6, 10, 11 are called as Upchaya sthan (means these are changeable, Improvable).

The Above condition changes with Place and time.The Bhav Chalit Kundali can further make it clear that which Rashi Occupy respective Bhavs .The influence of the Rashi in the Bhav is important and the planets deposited in that Rashis become lord of which Bhav is important.

It can be stated from above if the lords of 3, 6, 10, and 11 are deposited in various Bhavs.The changes those different Bhavs can take place

if it is related to 4th Bhav than change of home or living conditions 2nd house suggests family, 10th Bhav change of office or working conditions,11th house gains

The Part of Fortuna also plays a very important role to decide the timing of the change

The Change of place can be advice for those people which have Good/strong Planets placed in bad Bhav.
The positive Change is only possible, if 9th house supports it (Bhagya sthan).

The Best indication comes from 9th House.
The Dwiswabhav rashis (temporary change of place, According to planetery positions/strength)
Char Rashi (Frequent change of place or country)
Sthir rashi (No change of Country and stability)

So we select the time and place of change such that it sychronises with the natal chart.
The 9th house with sthir rashi gives long term stability. The help of Tajik chart can be taken for time for the shift.

The Place can be decided with the help of natal chart. The Change should be made so that the natal planets are in good houses. We can move the natal chart such a way that there is sthir rashi with subha graha aspecting it or deposited in it would be on the 9th house. Part of fortuna should be in good house prefef\rably 11th, 9th.

And through calculation conclude on longitude of the place. This can be further refine by latitude.

The hemisphere can also give a twist to the chart as the north/south hemisphere helps malefic and benifics according to differen lagnas.          
Conclusions:

The change in place can bring about changes in the life of a person fortune for following :
The natal chart has strong planets, The Dasa supports it, There is clear relation ship with upchay sthans, part of fortune and 4th and 10th house involved, All will be considered so that 9th House the Bhagya sthan can be Made strong.

MANGAL : Everyone needs energy for every aspect be it any work and for this reason it is given additional drishti. The main work of mankind is to live and to protect himself and since 8TH HOUSE is of life / death, it is given that drishti. Any person who does any work, does for his satisfaction (sukh) and since 4TH HOUSE is of sukh, it is given that drishti. Thus 1 – 7 – 8GURU : Everyone needs education and one has to implement whatever he has studied in education. Whatever knowledge you have acquired, that should be implemented in the right manner for the betterment or ourselves and mankind. For eg : a sword has been given for fighting. We have a sword and now we will learn how to fight with it and that also as per one’s ability in using the right weapon at the right time and thus a teacher will help to learn. 5th HOUSE is the Prapti Stan and 9th House is the destiny/dharm and therefore 5 & 9 house. Thus 5 – 7 – 9

SHANI : We have learnt how to use weapons and now we need to implement them for self defence or for any other reason and for that we have to work and Shani helps to work. Parakram / Purusharth is done through 3rd House. Now it is also important to know where we have to use our weapon and for that 10th House – karyashetra. Thus 3 – 7 -10.

WHY SATURN IS EXALTED IN LIBRA, various reasons, but let’s understands basics first……

About Tula rashi

Tula Rashi-Vayutatva sign-Venus lord (Jaltatva, Jalgrah)-Padjal(25% water content)- Chara rashi(movable)-The Balance-Air with 25% moisture content-Rules Winds above high population density areas, male sign, southern sign, semi fruitful, human representation, has the age of 33 and a half years, have 2 rays, sirashodaya rashi, biped sign(2 legs), a surya sadga sign, represent entrance place, money lender caste, kama rashi, west direction, place of business, ruled by goddess saraswati, it’s a rajsic sign and rules cold disease, have variegated color, a long rashi, it is deaf during the day, rules bhutkal (past tense), a fast moving sign, rules dhatuu, of a balance shape, rules trader caste(vysya),a violent sign, in body parts rules hip, responsible for brain fever and typhoid.

Profession ruled by it:

Jewelry shop, fancy shop, handicrafts, perfume shop, cloth merchant, money lending, commission agents, bank, Life insurance , law dept., hotel business, bar and Restaurant, Dancing Hall, Beauty parlor, Music, Dance ,Cinema.

General character of rashi:

Good talker, judicious in dealings

Saturn’s two rashi’s are of Bhoomi(earth) (makar) and vayu(air) tatva (kumbh).
Venus two rashi’s are of Bhoomi(vrish) and vayu tatva.(Tula)
Mercury two rashi’s are of Bhoomi(virgo) and vayu tatva.(mithun)

Hence Saturn, Venus and Mercury are friends

Like wise…

Sun’s Leo is of pure Agnitatva.(fire element)
Moon’s Cancer is of pure Jaltatva.(water element)
Jupiter’s two rashi’s are of Jal and Agni tatva.
Mars two rashi’s are of Jal and Agni tatva

Hence Jupiter, mars, sun and moon are friends.

But still all Rashi’s are different w.r.t to their water content.

Saturn:-
Makar – Bhoomi(earth) tatva- 100% Jal(water), Kumbh – Vayu(air) tatva- 50% Jal.
Venus:-
Vrish – Bhoomi tatva- 50% Jal, Tula – Vayu tatva- 25% Jal.
Mercury:-
Kanya – Bhoomi tatva- 0% Jal, Mithun- Vayu tatva- 0% Jal.
Jupiter:-
Dhanu – Agni tatva- 50% Jal, Meena- Jal tatva- 100% Jal.
Mars:-
Mesh- Agni tatva- 25% Jal, Vrishchik- Jal tatva- 25% Jal.
Sun:-
Simh- Agni tatva- 0% Jal.
Moon:-
Kark- Jal tatva- 100% Jal.

Before going ahead lets also understand that…

Grah gives rise to “Iccha Shakti”
Rashi gives rise to “Gyana Shakti”
Nakshatra gives rise to “Kriya shakti”

NOW THE REASONS:

1) Saturn has control over Air, so primary significator of the Air; hence called as vayu tatva grah (Mithun(Gemini), Tula(libra) and kumbh(aquarius) are the vayu(air element) tatva rashi therefore falls under the jurisdiction of Saturn).

As a result Saturn is more comfort table in Vayu tatva rashi.

Now why Saturn is not exalted in other vayu tatva rashi’s like Mithun and kumbh?

2 basic reasons:

a) Relationship of Saturn with Venus is stronger than Saturn’s relationship with Mercury, though Saturn is friendly to both but Venus is the favorite chap of Saturn, hence Saturn is not exaltated in Mithun. As per lal kitab, there is an inherent connection between Saturn and Venus, they both comes to each other rescue when caught in a problem. You all must have seen that the most eventful antardasha dasha in the mahadasha of Saturn is that of Venus, now whether it’s GOOD or BAD, it depends on many factors.

Kumbh is Saturn’s own and mooltrikond sign, hence this possibility is also ruled out for Saturn’s exaltation.

So Saturn is exalted in Tula.

Note: Saturn is not exalted in Venus other sign, i.e. Taurus because that is a bhoomi tatva(earth sign) and also not the mooltrikond sign of Venus.

b) Another reasoning is, Mithun rashi is a nirjal rashi (0% water content), kumbh is a ardhjal rashi (50% water content) and Tula is a padjal rashi (25% water content), Tula is preferred by Saturn also because Saturn is the enemy of moon i.e. jal tatva planet, since kumbh has 50% water content, it manages that by owning it but is not completely delighted over there, on the other extreme Mithun is a nirjal rashi which is also not preferred by Saturn. Hence exalted in padjal rashi tula….now why exactly Saturn does not prefer Nirjal rashi(0 % water content sign)….the answer lies in the formation of our planet where water’s share
is itself 70 %…only few planets like sun(which itself is fire element) prefer the Nirjal sign……and that is the reason why Moon gets uncomfortable in Mithun and virgo signs…if not aspected by shubh planets… more so because for moon mercury is the enemy…anyways lets move ahead…

2) General character of Libra rashi matches with that of Saturn i.e. both are judicious in dealings, hence Exalted in Tula.
3) Libra is the sign of balance and Saturn is the Planet of balance or Justice, hence Exalted in Tula.
4) Libra rules the west direction and Saturn gains Directional strength in 7th house which coincides with west direction. This could be understood as per the kalchakra too, hence exalted in Tula.
5) Libra is the southern sign and Saturn’s both rashi’s Makar and kumbh coincides with south direction (10th house and 11th house) as per the kalchakra system, hence exalted in Tula.
6) Both Tula and Saturn rules dhatuu (or metal)
7) Libra rules past tense and Saturn is famous for giving the results of the past karma bluntly.
Note: Icha shakti of Saturn (Planet) gains maximum Gyan shakti in Tula Rashi.

There are many other reasons and point of views, for instance;

1) Saturn turns exalted where sun turns neech, to understand this is deep, I have to write another article on why sun gets neech in Tula…again there are many reasons…but main ones are Swati nakshatra ruled by rahu (most dreaded enemy of Sun) lies in Tula rashi, lord venus is the shatru of sun (this shatruta aggravates in the mooltrikond sign of Venus) etc etc…anyways lets remain focused on Saturn exaltation factors.
2) For many the answer lies in the nakshatras of Tula rashi, 2 padas of chitra(lord mars), 4 padas of Swati(lord rahu) and 3 padas of vishakha(lord Jupiter)….will explain from this angle in detail…ASAP.

WATCH PREDICTIVE TECHNIQUE             The small Hand (Hour Hand) in the clock/watch is called Udhaya (Lagna).
The big Hand (Minute Hand) in the clock/watch is called Aruda (Moon)
There are 12 divisions in the clock/watch which are equal to 12 Rasis/signs

                        1 Hour = 1 Udhaya
                        5 Minutes = 1 Aruda

HOUR DIVISION
IN CLOCK/WATCH
RASI
From 12 To 01
Mesha
From 01 To 02
Vrishaba
From 02 To 03
Mithuna
From 03 To 04
Kataka
From 04 To 05
Simha
From 05 To 06
Kanya
From  06 To 07
Thula
From 07 To 08
Vrichika
From 08 To 09
Dhanus
From 09 To 10
Makara
From 10 To 11
Kumba
From 11 To 12
Meena

The count from the division where the small hand is positioned to the division where the big hand is positioned in the clock/watch will indicate the success or failure of an event.
If the count is an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11) the answer to the question is YES
If the count is an even number (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12) the answer to the question is NO
The counting should be in clockwise direction
With this technique all YES or NO questions can be answered

Example-1

In example-1 the small hand is in vrichika, the big hand is in Mithuna.
From Vrichika to Mithuna the count is 8 which is an even number.
If any question asked at this time the answer will be NO

Example-2

In example-2 the small hand is in vrichika, the big hand is in Kanya.
From Vrichika to Kanya the count is 11 which is an odd number.
If any question asked at this time the answer will be YES.
