We all know that when lord of first house goes into 8th or in 6th house, it’s bad. Similarly when lord of 4th house placed in 12th or 8th or 6th, it is not considered good, But have you ever thought that what’s the reason behind these conclusions (based on planetary placements)

Like wise we have many such doubts, right.

In this article you will find the answers to most of your basic doubts w.r.t basic rules of Astrology, since I will be giving explanations w.r.t these doubts through Astrology.

Hence, here you will also learn how scientific ASTROLOGY is!

So just fasten your seat belts, to go for a ride, full of knowledge.

To start with, let me give you, few basic concepts of Vaastu, so that you can link it with astrology.

There are four basic “kond” or corners namely “ishanaya”—– north east (water or Jal tatva)

“Aagneya”—– south east (fire or Agni tatva), “vayvaya”—–North West(airy of Vayu tatva)

“Naeshetraya”—–south west (earth or prithvi tatva)

Basic Directions are: North east, north,North West, west, south west, south, south east

3 other directions are also possible which i will mention later.

There are mainly two types of energy, affecting us as per Vaastu i.e.. solar energy or “Saaur prandik urja” (goes out from the direction in between North east and south east”) and “jaivik urja” (comes to us from “direction in between north east and north west”)

According to our ancient scriptures; Nature is made up of 3 “gund” namely “satva”, “rajas” and “Tamas”

And we all have one prominent gund out of the above three in different proportion.

Souls which have “Tamas” in domination, ultimately goes in the ”pashu yoni” or in the category of animals.

Souls who have rajas in domination lives on earth in the form of human beings and souls who have satva in domination resides in “uchh lokas or in Gods abode”

These are the general classification but billions of permutations and combinations are possible, Giving rise to 84 lakh yoni’s (Types of living beings) on earth itself.

You all must be thinking, how all this relates to Jyotish (Astrology) or Vaastu, so here is the answer is that, first learn the basics and then we will go in deep.


Planets like Rahu, mars, sat are tamsik

Planets like Jupiter and sun are satvic.

And planets like Venus, mercury are rajsik.


Directions between north and east have “satvic gund” which means northeast is purely satvic i.e.. 100%.

Adjacent directions on other sides of north east have 50% satvic gund

All directions between (east and south) and (north and west) have “rajsik gund”

That means South east is purely Rajsik (100%) andNorth westis also purely Rajsik (100%)

Directions between west and south have “Tamsik gund”

South west is purely Tamsik (100%

Now you all can easily relate why Jupiter is very good in “north east” that is in 2nd house as Jupiter is purely satvic, so as north east.

Venus being Rajsik is very good in 11th and 12th houses as these houses correspond to “south east” i.e. purely Rajsik. Similarly it can be applied to other planets too. Ok before exposing you to more concepts, let me first tell you some other basics.

We all know that Jupiter and mercury are Dig Bali (Direction wise strong0 in 1st house, moon in 4th, Saturn in 7th sun and mars in 10th.

The reason why the above planets are Dig Bali can be interpreted from the above concept.

Now why their placements are influencing us in the horoscope reading and how is Vaastu related to that.

We will come to that but before that, you must know that our ancient rishis have observed a very basic

But most important concept which can applied in Jyotish as well as in Vaastu.

See whatever is present in this universe is dependent on the “prand” or life giving energy. If we correctly know about this “prand” our life would become prosperous. Don’t take it in a literal sense.

This “prand” is classified as a mysterious energy which resides in all of us and has no relation with “five elements” i.e. “fire, water, matter, space and air”. Its feel can be developed with the help of “high level of meditation”

Our body is the representative of this “prand” and prand is exactly opposite to the “five elements”

Indeed This prand is the only source of energy for 72000 arteries and veins in our body.

Here i am going to tell you “rarest” aspect of prand.

ITS correct way!


Since “prand” is sustained by energies from universe (consisting of all the planets), read this with rapt attention.

“This prand flows from north east corner to south west corner”

But hold on!

Its path is not straight.

“From north east it first goes toNorth Westand then goes to south west.”

Another path is “From north east corner to south east and then to south west”

Just learn and meditate these concepts because now I am going to extract whole of Jyotish and Vaastu out of it.

Take Scorpio lagan.

Now for this lagan, East direction is ruled by mars (lord of Scorpio rashi, 1st house) north east by Jupiter (lord of dhanu rashi, 2nd house) like wise, north is ruled by Saturn being lord of 4th house (for Scorpio lagan) south west ruled by mercury being lord of 8th house, west ruled by venus, south ruled by sun.

We’ll come to above example after these few sentences.

Now since “prand” enters from the north east (purely SATVIC) corner of any house, we live in.

As per Vaastu, We say that there.

1) There should be open lawns/ garden in the north east.

2) There should be water bodies/swimming pools in north east.

3) More of windows should be present in the north east (or lot of openings)

4) Any kind of obstruction like wall, tall trees etc should NOT be there in the north east.

5) Main door should be in the north east.

6) There should NOT be any gutter, toilet, septic tank or thick walls in the north east.

So all the above parameters becomes very scientific from the angle of Vaastu!

NOW what about Jyotish…???

Now coming to the example of Scorpio lagan.

If lord of 2nd house i.e.  Jupiter, who represents north east for this particular lagan is placed in 8th house (that is in Mithun (Gemini) rashi) I.e. south west direction which is purely Tamsik direction, then the result would not be auspicious as north east direction will develop a fault.


As the planet representing the satvic direction is placed in Tamsik south west direction.

Now if north east direction has developed fault.

How does it affect us????

See, we receive all the fresh (air, sun light) from the north east direction, hence all the life giving energy comes enters first from north east. This is by default, because of the spin of earth on its axis and rotation of earth around the sun. Sun moves from east to west following the route (lagan, 12th house, 11th, 10th, 9th, 8th and then 7th house) As a result, Native having the above condition in his chart would not have adequate opening in the north east direction or in case of more Ashubh prabhav (malefic influence) on 2nd house, There would be presence of toilet in north east.

Hence he will not receive adequate fresh air and sun light as a result inauspicious results will follow (for his health and then to his financial conditions)

Through astrology, we immediately say that lord of 2nd house in 8th will lead to some inauspicious effect similarly take an example of cancer lagan.

Moon is placed in lagan (moon is the representative of east for this lagan) and sun in 2nd (sun is the representative of north east for this lagan) now both of them are swarashi in 1st and 2nd houses respectively

And both of them are satvic as a result from Jyotish perspective we say its very auspicious.

Now why it is auspicious???? Its answer lies in Vaastu.

Simple, since north east direction from where “prand” enters our house and then in our body is having no fault Because of the presence of auspicious sun and moon there, As a result, The native will have adequate opening in east and north east direction of his house hence will continuously get fresh air and as soon as fresh air goes inside our body it becomes “prand” which then has no relation with “five elements”

Very mysterious isn’t it!

Here I must repeat, what i have said earlier.

North east, from where fresh air enters. This fresh air has two kind of energies in it.

First is solar energy which is available (between north east and south east) and second is Life giving energy which we call as “jaivik urja” this “jaivic urja is available (between north east and north west)

Both kind of energies are available in north east (as north is the common direction in the above two scenario’s)

That’s why; fresh air from north east becomes very important.

Take one more example, forTulalagan (Libra) if Satun is placed in 2nd house with Rahu.

Sun in 8th house with ketu, now in this case both south west and north east direction have developed fault.

What will be the scenario in this case…??? The native will have toilet or septic tanks in north east or will have thick walls with no opening in north east as well as since south west has also developed fault because of the placement of sun in it. This corner will have openings, or would be separated from the rest of the house.

Always remember that any decrease in the strength of sun and mars will lead to a fault in south direction.

(No thick walls or lot of openings)

Any decrease in the strength of Jupiter will lead to fault in north east.

Any decrease in the strength of Saturn will lead to fault in west.

Any decrease in the strength of moon will lead to fault in north.

Any decrease in the strength of mercury will lead to fault in east.

Also remember that;

Tamsik planets are more suitable for the directions west, south west and south i.e. Saturn, mars, Rahu and ketu (7th, 8th, 9th, 10th houses)

Satvic planets are more suitable for the directions north, north east and east i.e. Jupiter, sun, moon (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th houses)

Rajsik planets are more suitable in the directions like south east, north west etc i.e. venus and mercury (5th house, 6th house, 11th house and 12th house)

Now this AGAIN is General classification (which we will understand later on)

Rajsik planets can be auspicious in satvic directions also & satvic planets can be auspicious in Rajsik direction also.

Many more exceptions are also possible, which will satisfy both Vaastu and Jyotish.

I will explain how;


Meena (pieces) lagan, Sat and mercury in lagan, sun in 2nd house, Rahu in 3rd, Jupiter in 4th house, venus in 12th house, moon in 11th house and ketu mars in 9th house.

Now since Saturn is in east (that is in lagan) so a fault will exist in east.

(From the point of view of astrology we will say, decline in the auspicious qualities of lagan) why??

Saturn is dig Bali in 7th house (in lagan it has no disha BAL, hence inauspicious, secondly Saturn being Tamsik grah in satvic direction is again inauspicious, many more reasons are possible)

So here entry should be from west or south, similarly logic can be applied, 3rd house has Rahu and Saturn, and mars are aspecting 3rd house, so a major fault in “north east” that is “ishanya” kond.

Since ketu is in 9th house with mars, so strong thick walls would be there in south and south west and therefore no fault in south and south west.

                                                                                                                                                                      Fingers Interpretations In Astrology                                                                                              In the past few years, I have observed the analysis style of many palmists but unfortunately, as usual the people prefer to be more theoretical rather than practical and that is because the implementation process of those theoretical concepts goes without actually understanding them.

Let me take the example of fingers, to make you understand my point.

Palmists are generally are only interested in the length of the fingers and the comparison of their length with other fingers, some will also see the visible bents in them and some may also go to the  extent of observing vertical lines present on the phalanges. Few palmists give lot of importance to the conical or symmetrical, shape of fingers towards end (along with shape of nails). Fair enough, I am not saying that these parameters are not important, of course they are, but palmists should be very cautious that these parameters should not be the starting point of their analysis w.r.t fingers. In other words the, first note on which the analysis will start cast a thumping influence on the final outcome of the analysis.

So let me just start explaining you the approach advocated by me.

See first we need to understand very nature of fingers, calling index finger as Jupiter finger, alone will not serve the purpose.

When we see the index finger and Jupiter’s mount  , we must realize that Jupiter is nothing but Jeeva Karaka (self karaka), next, sun finger and its mount  is your atma karaka or soul karaka, I hope you people realize that Jeeva (self) is different from Atma (Soul), Saturn Finger (Middle one) is your karma karaka (action based), mercury finger (little one) is budhi karaka (Covers thinking, intelligence, memory and speech), Thumb , Mount of venus, moon and mars act as a supportive system to these fingers.

So the information w.r.t to your Self or I should say Outer self has to be seen from Jupiter finger and its mount, supported by mount of moon, mars, Venus and thumb.

The information w.r.t to your Karma (Actions) has to be seen from Saturn finger and its mount, supported by mount of moon, mars, Venus and thumb.

The information w.r.t to your Inner self (Atma) has to be seen from sun finger and its mount, supported by mount of moon, mars, Venus and thumb.

The information w.r.t to your intelligence (Budhi) has to be seen from mercury finger and its mount, supported by mount of moon, mars, Venus and thumb.

Here you can follow that Mount of Venus, Moon, mars and thumb are the common factors in all the above cases.  So you must get a very simple fact very straight that when you are looking at fingers w.r.t any thing, you just cannot leave the support system behind. Hence they should be analyzed along with fingers.  There is not doubt in that.

If this first stone is clear to you, we can move ahead.

Till now most of you must be feeling that yes we have followed the above explanation, but I am sure only few you, would be asking a question that, Nikhil is telling us w.r.t self, soul or karma etc, but why the hell, he is not telling us about the things which comes under the category of these Self(Jeeva), action(karma), Inner self(Atma) or Intelligence(Budhi).

So dear friends, here is the answer:

Self (Jeeva):

a)    General wisdom+ that reflected by support system.

b)    General self confidence+ that reflected by support system.

c)    General leadership qualities+ that reflected by support system.

d)    General behavior+ that reflected by support system.

e)    General materialism in one’s life+ that reflected by support system.

f)     General optimism level+ that reflected by support system.

g)    General self respect+ that reflected by support system.

Action (karma):

h)   General hard working nature (whether he believes in hard work or is he afraid of hard work or he just believe in hard work, forget about practicing it) + that reflected by support system.

i)     General humbleness in the nature (whether he is down to earth or not) + that reflected by support system.

j)     General consistency in ones nature (Practice makes a man perfect, suits here) + that reflected by support system.

k)    General dependability on the person (Whether the person is trustworthy or not) + that reflected by support system.

l)     General vision of the person (How big, wide and clear can he/she visualize) + that reflected by support system.

m)  General seriousness or responsiveness in his nature+ that reflected by support system.

So you can see that how important Saturn is, Saturn qualities make the person an actual, real and genuine human being, hence the support from Saturn is an absolute necessity as all other qualities will only backfire if the Saturn qualities are absent.

Reason is simple if Saturn qualities get missing, the self confidence coming from Jupiter will take the shape of over confidence.

Self respect coming from Jupiter will get converted into BIG EGO.

Hope now you all are little bit following, why initially, I was emphasizing on the approach of Fingers interpretations.

So let’s move ahead, since I can see the smile on all your faces.

Ok enough concentrate.

Soul (Inner self or Atma):

We know that both Jeeva (self) and karma(action) changes with every life but soul, as Bhagwat Gita claims, is indestructible which changes body like clothes and never changes its original form.

In other words Jeeva (outer self with body) experiences the karma phal (actions results) which gets carried over by our soul (inner self) in next birth.

Or you can say that Jeeva (self) does karma (action), which gets attached with our soul and soul would act like a carrier for those karma(action), and this would finally be called as the destiny for the native’s next life(or next birth).

Hence, all the qualities which I have explained for Saturn (karma karaka/action) finally get’s carried over through soul only (or sun finger and mount only). In other words parameters w.r.t all planets in correct form actually affects soul only. Jeeva (self) does action (karma) and Karma phal gets attached to the soul (atma). 

Hope, you all, can now understand the linkages between Jupiter, Saturn and sun fingers

Therefore, this fructification of karma, gives rises to the parameters represented by sun:

n)   Actual Inner strength or courage + that reflected by support system.

o)    Authority, name and fame in life + that reflected by support system.

p)    Purity of soul and actions+ that reflected by support system.

a)    Pure spiritualism + that reflected by support system.

b)    Creativity, Talent and divine connection + that reflected by support system.

Intelligence (Budhi karaka):

a)    Communication abilities+ that reflected by support system.

b)    Thinking ability+ that reflected by support system.

c)    Business executing abilities+ that reflected by support system.

d)    Research carrying out abilities+ that reflected by support system.

e)    Memory+ that reflected by support system

f)     Adjusting/ flexibility abilities+ that reflected by support system.

g)    Competing abilities+ that reflected by support system.

So Now you all know what exactly I meant by Self, soul, action and intelligence.

After knowing all these details and background about fingers, you must also see that fingers should ideally be:

1)    Long

2)    Straight (no bends etc.)

3)    Should have equal size phalanges.(with no abrupt lines on them)

4)    Vertical lines on phalanges are good.

5)    Length of fingers should be in proportion with palm.

6)    Ideally speaking, mercury finger should be the smallest amongst all fingers, followed by Jupiter finger, next in length should be the sun finger and finally middle finger should be longest.

7)    Mercury finger should ideally go beyond the 2nd phalange of sun finger, Sun finger should ideally go beyond the half mark of the last phalange of middle finger, Jupiter Finger should ideally reach the half mark of the last phalange of middle finger and finally thumb should reach the half mark of the 1st phalange of Jupiter finger.

8)    Breadth of the fingers should be constant all through the 3 phalanges.

For things like Skin patterns, fingers shapes etc, you may refer any book, as this would save my time.

One very essential point to note: Though I am really pushing against time but still wanted to share this last very important concept with you, as you all would not find it any where:

3 phalanges of in each of our fingers represent our journey of life.

First phalange in continuation to mount represent initial phase of our life (0-30 years) w.r.t the parameters denoted by that finger, middle phalange is about our age bracket of (30-60 years) w.r.t the parameters denoted by that finger and last phalange will denote bracket of (60-90 years) w.r.t the parameters denoted by that finger. Beyond 90 years process will repeat.

First phalange also says about the parameters of planet (corresponding to that finger) in our past life and last phalange says about our next life w.r.t the parameters denoted by that finger.

Many other concepts are also crossing my mind, but I think, that would be overdose for both you and me. So guys Bye and Take care.
