Agni: Supreme light of the Holy Father as Brahma (Mars: Brahmacārya), Śiva (Sun: Ātmā Jyoti) and Viṣṇu (Jupiter: Satya Jyoti)

The lords of akṣavedāṁśa [45th division], are reckoned regular and direct for movable signs starting from Aries, for fixed signs starting from Leo and for dual signs starting from Sagittarius.

  • Just as Khavedāṁśa (D40) followed the prākṛti principle of 1st-7th, the akṣavedāṁśa follows the agni-trikoṇa considered most auspicious (kṛta yuga)
  • Ākāśa tattva descends through this varga and holds everything together – parts of the body, as well as parts of family, parts of life etc. are all held together in place
All signs start in the Agni rāśi in Kendra called ‘Agni-Kendra’ and end in the 9th house (father).These Agni Rāśi in Kendra are Rājayoga initiators and have the power of Sūrya Deva
  • Chara Lagna > Aries | Mars
  • Sthira Lagna > Leo | Sun
  • Dvisva Lagna >Sagittarius | Jupiter
Dictum: [Rāśi Chart] If Sun is alone in Agni-Kendra sign the soul is extremely powerful [Rāśi Chart] provided it gains other strengths
  • Gāyatrī mantra flows through the Agni Kendra rāśi to the Lagna because Gāyatrī only works through the kendra that mark the four saṅdhyā
  • What one does with this power is seen from two factors (1) Lord of Sun sign and (2) Moon (mind that directs the use) …study these video lessons which introduce the depth of the D40-Chart


Know that the lords of catvāriṁśāṁśa [40th division previously called Khavedāṁśa], for odd signs are reckoned from Aries while for even signs they are reckoned from Libra. Recall the hora division associated with this type of division, the male-female explanations.

  • This is not parivṛtti division.
  • The count starting from Aries ends at Cancer but the first khavedāṁśa of Taurus is Libra indicating discontinuity.
  • Aries, Libra are 1st-7th houses of natural zodiac; this principle of starting from 1st or 7th is extensively used in Jaimini Sutra and also by Parāśara in Rāśi daśā

It is evident then that the first sexual impulse of masculine or feminine gender comes from this divisional chart. It sets the tone for the development of a male or a female – in the super consciousness plane. It also shows the genetic code that develops into the male/female being. It is not necessary that every male must have a masculine khavedāṁśa or every female must have a feminine khavedāṁśa. We study this in advanced classes in the future, and please do not start speculating. This is the tip of the iceberg of knowledge that the khavedāṁśa holds, after all it is a “veda-aṁśa” that connects to the ‘ख’ (kha) meaning ‘spiritual sky’. Let us get started with the lessons.

Lesson#1: Khavedāṁśa Defined

Know the Earth Mother, they lovingly call Her Kali, Durga, Mary, Petka, Tara, Fatima and by so many other names that portrays Her moods and various forms.

Lesson#2: Serial Killers

Sorrow of the Earth Mother

Lesson#3: Booming Billionaires

Smile of the Earth Mother

Lesson#4: Blessed Bhakti

Love of the Earth Mother


This is a peculiar division as the one-twenty-seventh portion of a sign equals 1°06’40”. Now the one-twelfth portion of a nakṣatra equals the same 1°06’40”. Thus the 27th part of a rāśi = 12th part of nakṣatra. This is the meeting point of the solar energy of the rāśi and the lunar energy of the nakṣatra. When we use the word Bhāṁśa. We are specifically referring to the 27th part of rāśi as in D27 Chart. On the other hand, while the nakṣatra is the same and maps exactly the same, it specifically refers to the 12th portion of the nakṣatra.

Bhāṁśa Shakti

Introduction

Bhāṁśa is from the word (and letter) भ (bha) referring to the bha-chakra or the zodiac composed of 27 nakṣatra. The letter भ (bha) also refers to the number 27. Therefore bhāṁśa means D27 or the 27 divisions of a sign. It also means nakṣatrāṁśa. Bhāṁśa = भ (bha) + aṁśa

Instead the word भा (bhā) with the longer ‘ā’ refers to Venus and is from Bhārgava or Bhṛgu.

Each bhāṁśa is a twenty-seventh (27) part of a rāśi (30°) thereby measuring 1°16’40” and the bhāṁśa tables are made counting all the divisions in parivṛtti method – regular, zodiacal without any jumps

A Students Notes

The Twenty-seven division

There are various ways to calculate the D-27, and interpretation will depend on the type of calculations used. General theory of the D-27 is connected to the Moon, it is called the bhāṁśa or nakṣatrāṁśa. The traditional calculation should be called the bhāṁśa and is connected to the strength of the Moon. The nakṣatrāṁśa has a different calculation, which no program as of yet calculates. It has more to do with nakṣatra.

Sanjay Rath gave a small talk on the bhāṁśa at the East Coast workshops 2003 as a side note to the “Steps in Horoscope Interpretation” workshop. This information comes from my notes, so is only my understanding of what was taught.  The CD should be available soon from SJC USA.

Bhāṁśa

Planets in the bhāṁśa show the planets consciousness level. For example, if the Moon is strong it makes the horoscope stronger, if the Moon is weak, it makes the horoscope weaker. It also shows the strengths and weaknesses of a person’s mind. Two things most important to judge are the (a) kendra and (b) the Yuga rāśi. Planets in Kendra will give results easily, they are your strength, what you get easily. Weaknesses are what you don’t get easily or at all. As regards Yuga rāśi, fire signs-what you get easily (100%)-Satya Yuga; water signs- 75%; air signs- 50%; earth signs- 25% weaknesses, flaws, Kali Yuga.

Predictive ability is based on Jupiter: the results you’ll get. If Jupiter is in the 7th house in a fire sign then the relationship will come easily whereas in earth sign then mantras and work are needed to achieve.

One should do what the strengths (strong planets) indicate and avoid weaknesses. Success is the path of strength, failure is the path of weakness.

Position of Venus will show your mental abilities for romance and relationship. For a Saṅnyāsi, Venus in an earth sign is good as it brings the power of Venus down to a bare 25%; look at Ramana Maharishi and Swami Vivekananda. If Venus is in a fire sign it would not be advised to take saṅnyāsa. First look at the natural significations and the tattva, study the karakas in the tattva. The tattva is the independent strength of the mind. Note that any planet in D-27 Capricorn, Kali Yuga sign, will have its naisargika karaka weakened.

The Moon

Studying the Moon has its own separate rules.

Step 1: When studying the Moon, look at the rāśi it occupies in D27 Chart. For example, in the chart of the great saint Ramana Maharishi, Moon was in Scorpio in D27 conjoined its dispositor Mars. Always study the Moon from the rāśi to know the strength of the mind.

Step 2: Look at where the nodes are in relation to the Moon as these are actually lunar nodes and show the extremities of the mind. Rāhu shows Bhoga mārga, and Ketu shows Mokṣa mārga. Judge which one of these has a better relationship or influence on the Moon.

The stronger of the two will show the primary mental impulse as it will show the stronger path, and where the individual’s achievement will be. This is the direction of the mind. For example, Ramana Maharṣi had Ketu in Cancer in trines to the Moon in Scorpio. Further, Moon and Ketu are in Parivartana Yoga, he had perfect spiritual discrimination and completely chose the mokṣa mārga. Don’t look at the houses as there is no Mother, Father or brother in this division. Vivekananda had Moon and Rāhu in a 2-12 relation and Moon and Ketu in a 6-8 relationship. He didn’t want to become a saṅnyāsi but his guru made him.

Step 3: Your lives best achievements will be seen from the Moon. What, where, and how this achievement needs to be done will clearly be seen.

Vivekananda had Sun in trines to the Moon in Gemini, Sun shows a spiritual lineage (esp. as it is in lagna in his rāśi chart D1), and in the bhāṁśa D27, it is in Gemini showing Mercury’s want to teach. His greatest achievement was setting up the Ramakrishna Mission for teaching spirituality.

In the bhāṁśa D27-chart of Prabhupada, Moon in Cancer with the Sun. It was trines to Rāhu, and he tried to succeed in the world many times but failed; Rāhu is in Scorpio in debility. So the Sun became the most powerful factor and had him set up a spiritual organization (Sun). In both charts of Vivekananda and Prabhupada, the Sun dominating the influence on the Moon confirms spiritual leanings of a very strong, traditional kind. Bear in mind that Sun is anti-Rāhu and exalts in a nakṣatra of Ketu.

People with one planet trine to Moon succeed easily because there is only one direction. When there are many planets trine, the person has many wants and will tend to spread themselves out in many areas. So that is the Bhāṁśa. This is the general chart to be used in normal analysis.

Nakṣatrāṁśa

The nakṣatrāṁśa is to be used by psychologists, not the average person. It shows the foundational field of the mind, the inner psychology behind thoughts and actions. There is a link behind the rāśi, drekkāṇa, navāṁśa, and nakṣatrāṁśa: D1, D3, D9, D27 …see the progression of numbers. You can see that D-27 is the drekkāṇa of the Navamśa or the navāṁśa of the drekkāṇa! It is very important for psychology.

  • Rāśi is the environment
  • Drekkāṇa is the plan to act on the environment
  • Navāṁśa shows how fortunate this was to you in the past
  • Nakṣatrāṁśa (D-27) shows whether you act on the impulse or not

One can follow the rāśi to d-3, d-9 to d-27 to see the impulse from the environment to the inner mind. Once the decision is made, the impulse arising in the deeper mind goes through the evaluation back to the rāśi where it is enacted on the environment.

How to study the Trimsamsa Chart? {tab=Method} Method-1

  1. Treat this like any other chart. In spiritualism we are taught of a “SHADOW SELF” called PAPA_PURUSHA which is a reflection of our own self, but the darker side which includes all the negative things we have done for ages and many births. This is the trimsamsa..the shadowy world of our self. Hence, the Sun and Moon do not own any trimsamsa as they have light.
  2. Second thing is to study this chart for all the bad things we have done for which we deserve to be punished or taught lessons. The 12th rules hospitals and is the 5th (Mantra) from the 8th (Diseases). Hence the 12th house shows the way to get out of diseases and other such bad karma. It is the future (5th) of the 8th house.
  3. A Saturn placed in such a place is not good as it delays the recovery from diseases, makes the effect of the mantra nil due to mistakes or “NOT WORSHIPPING GANESHJI” before starting a mantra can render it useless unless Guru is very strong. In this manner study the houses with focus on the 8th house (ROGA: Diseases & RINA Debts) and the 6th house (SHAD RIPU: Six kinds of weaknesses). In this manner the houses should be studied.
  4. The 9th house (Dharma) from the 8th house is the 4th house. Thus, happiness and laughter (ruled by the 4th house) are the best natural medicine to get out of the cycle of disease and debt. A clean heart is the key to happiness & laughter. Venus (fulfilment of desires) gives happiness & Mercury gives laughter. Moon is the natural significator for the 4th house and becomes the Controlling planet for good health and freedom from diseases. In this manner the planets should be studied.
  5. The Arudha pada of the sixth house gives the body part that shall be afflicted due to the diseases.
  6. Venus rules the Mritunjaya Mantra and the strength of Venus in this division is important for recovery from diseases. The Sun and the Moon represent the Atma (Soul) and the Mana (Mind) respectively. Affliction to the Sun will result in suffering, poverty and misery while affliction to the Moon will cause ill health and death. Since Mars and Venus rules the signs of exaltation of the Sun and Moon, they represent the Physical and Mental strength of the native to cope with distress, disease and other evils respectively.

The following are my teachings to a student (Shiv Pujan) for presenting a paper at the Hyderabad Conference. {tab=Tattva} Introduction Trimsa means thirty and amsa means division indicating the one-thirtieth division of a sign. The Sun progresses at the rate of about one degree everyday and its progress in 120 days is analogous to covering a span of 120 degrees in the zodiac. Manu smriti teaches us that ‘a year of the human beings is equal to a day of the Devas’. So, 120 days of the Sun is equal to 120 years of the human beings, which is the full life span. This indicates that the one-degree motion of the Sun has relevance to longevity and suffering. Accordingly, Parasara advises the use of this ‘Trimsamsa’ for determining the evils that the native has to suffer due to past karma. The Trimsamsa (D-30) chart is used to delineate various kinds of evils one is likely to face. In a female nativity, it shows her moral character, and this can be extended to all charts as well. Trimsamsa and Tattva The Trimsamsa lords are Mars (5°) Saturn (50) Jupiter (80), Mercury (70) and Venus (50) for odd signs and the reverse for even signs. The deities accordingly are Agni, Vāyu, Indra, Kubera and Varuṇa for odd signs and the reverse for even signs. Pt. Sanjay Rath writes, “The deities are based on the five elements of Fire (Agni), Wind (vāyu), ākāś or Ether (Indra the God of Gods – the Sky), Prthivī or Earth (Kubera the lord of wealth), and Jala or Fluid (Varuṇa the God of Water). Whereas each of the four elements of Agni (Fire), Jala (Water), Vāyu (Wind) and Prthivī (Earth) rule the trines of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn respectively, the fifth element ākāś (Ether) pervades all signs and hence, Indra becomes the God of all these Gods. This is mentioned in the Vedic Hymn “śaṁ no indra vṛddhaśravāḥ” wherein all the peoples from time immemorial have been taking shelter (asraya) under Indra for their welfare and protection from evils as the Trimsamsa represents the evils that befall man.” Table: Trimsamsa & Tattva

Odd Signs Even Signs
Degrees Trimsamsa Tatwa Deity Degrees Trimsamsa Tatwa Deity
5o Aries Agni Agni 5o Taurus Jala Varuṇa
10o Aquarius vāyu vāyu 12o Virgo Prthivī Kubera
18o Sagittarius ākāś Indra 20o Pisces ākāś Indra
25o Gemini Prthivī Kubera 25o Capricorn vāyu vāyu
30o Libra Jala Varuṇa 300 Scorpio Agni Agni

{tab=Weakness} Pancha Makara Fall in character or weaknesses show due to the affliction to the ruling elements. The weaknesses are called Pancha Makara or the five M’s. If a planet is placed in a certain Trimsamsa, which is ruled by a particular tatwa, then affliction to the planet will show in the form of affliction to the tatwa causing the rise of a particular weakness or bad habit. Other weaknesses or bad habits generally follow this first weakness. Table: Pancha Makara

Weakness Description Tattva Planet
Madya Alcohol (Intoxicants) Vayu Saturn
Mamsa Meat Agni Mars
Matsya Fish Prthvi Mercury
Mudra Palm/ hand posture Akasha Jupiter
Maithuna Copulation Jala Venus

Shadripu – Six Weaknesses The Parashari Trimsamsa chart is used to know about diseases. The Trimsamsa chart shows ṣaḍripu (six weaknesses). These are acquired and are represented by Saturn who is Karaka of sixth house. In addition, it is used in delineating moral character in a female nativity. One of the five Tatwa (primordial elements) comes under heavy affliction and shows the kind of health problem one is likely to face. It also shows kind of character one has and the time of manifestation of such character. Six planets show six acquired weaknesses as per table below. It is noteworthy that the Satwa Guna planets do not contribute to the ñaòripu or the six weaknesses. The Satwa Guna planets are the Sun, Moon and Jupiter. The rajas Guna planets Mercury & Venus cause Ego/jealousy and lust related weaknesses while the Tamas Guna planets cause anger (Mars), greed (Rahu), intoxicant addiction (Saturn) and illusions and mistakes (Ketu).

Table: Shadripu

Planet Weakness
Hindi Translation
Mars Krodha Anger
Rahu Lobha Greed
Saturn Mada Intoxication
Venus Mamsa Lust (Kama)
Mercury Matsarya Ego & Jealousy
Ketu Moha Illusion

Trimsamsa shows the number of ṣaḍripu acquired by a person. Diseases can be of two types: Nija (self / internal) and Agantuka (External). Each of these has two sub-categories. Nija disease can affect either the body (eighth house) or mind (eighth house & fifth house). Agantuka can be of two types, i.e. Driṣṭa (known causes sixth house) and Adriṣṭa (unknown causes, Badhak and Badhakesh). Here we are dealing with Driṣṭa type of diseases, which are acquired and should be seen in sixth house. Trimsamsa chart falls in the second harmonic of sixth house. The following formula below shows its level of working.

30 = 12 + 12 +6
Division number First cycle (Physical level) Second cycle (Consciousness) Third cycle (Sub- consciousness)

The above formula shows that D/30 chart works at the sub-conscious level and we can find out the weaknesses an individual has acquired in this life. If one were conscious of forces at work in D/30 chart, one would not have any weakness at all. {tab=Bhava} Lagna The lagna of any chart shows the native himself. The lagna of D/30 chart shows his weaknesses. It shows what has been defined as Avishnu (i.e. not Vishnu or against Vishnu). In this it is opposite of what is shown by a D/3 chart. We have to focus on Lagna, tenth house and eighth house to know the weaknesses (shadripu) of the native, as these are important houses while considering the longevity of the matter in focus in any chart. Planets in Lagna will show weaknesses acquired during current birth directly related to bodily weaknesses. If any of the Shadripu coming from any planet is in Lagna, this is a weakness that has developed in this birth due to inherent weakness of D/30 Lagna itself (which means intelligence, learning etc.). In addition to planets in Lagna, the Lagna Lord of this chart will indicate the Tatwa that has become strong or weak. The Lagna Lord of D/30 chart shows the exact disease. Tenth house Malefics in tenth house denoting Shadripu shows mental weaknesses where weaknesses develop due to various pressures, which the mind fails to counter. Eighth house Planets afflicting eighth house shows weaknesses inherited from past incarnation. Important considerations in Delineation If the Rasi chart is in Agni Tatwa and the D/30 chart shows Jala Tatwa (opposite of Agni Tatwa) or vice- versa, there is sure to be plenty of problems. Dasa and Antar Dasa lord who are mutually hostile by owning opposite Tatwa create many serious problems (For example, Saturn Dasa-Venus Antar Dasa or Venus Dasa-Saturn Antar Dasa or Mercury Dasa-Mars Antar Dasa or Mars Dasa- Mercury Antar Dasa) When D/30 chart shows contradictory influences on any pair, bad results are likely to follow. Five planets (leaving aside the non-luminous planets Rahu and Ketu and the Sun and Moon, having no lordship in Parashari Trimsamsa, are omitted) rule five Tatwa (primordial elements) as below. The Mahapurush Yoga each one of them forms is given along with the presiding deity, as per the table given below.

Table: Planetary Tattva

Planet Tatwa Mahapurusha Yoga Deity
Mars Agni (Fire) Ruchaka Surya
Mercury Prithvi (Earth) Bhadra Ganesha
Venus Jala (Water) Malavya Devi
Saturn Vayu (Air) Sasa Siva
Jupiter Aakash (Ether) Hamsa Narayana

The 12 signs of Zodiac are also divided into four groups as below: Table: Rasi Tattva

Rasi Tattva
1,5,9 Fiery signs
2,6,10 Earthy signs
3,7,11 Airy signs
4,8,12 Watery signs

The fifth element namely Ether keeps these four elements together. Use of Naisargika Dasa Naisargika Dasa (natural period) is a wonderful tool for finding out the negative experiences one is likely to go through in this life. The natural ruler of a person’s age between 5-12 is Mercury, between ages 13 – 32 is Venus and between ages 33-50 is Jupiter. Any afflictions to these planets will show negative experiences in the corresponding age group. In particular, curses on these planets should be checked in D-30 chart. {tab=Remedy} Remedies based on D-30 chart A remedy can be suggested based on the Trimsamsa Lagna. As Trimsamsa Lagna shows one’s weaknesses, a proper remedy would do away with these weaknesses.

  • If Lagna rising in D-30 chart is a sign of Saturn, do Pranayama.
  • If it is in the sign of Jupiter do meditation.
  • If it is in the sign of Mars, light a lamp.
  • If it is in the sign of Venus perform Pooja, donation etc.
  • If it is in the sign of Mercury do Japa

In this context, Mahidhara opines that one who worships the Pancha devata, everyday (as per the table above) shall have a smooth life and shall always be protected irrespective of evils. This is so because all Trimsamsa are covered by this worship. In Pancha – Upachara Pooja the items given under the following table indicated against the planet should be offered. Table: Planetary Remedies

Planet Remedy Panchopachar
Mars Lamp Deepa
Mercury Perfume Gandha
Jupiter Flower Pushpa
Venus Food Naivedya
Saturn Incense Dhoopa

Best Remedy: The best remedy for any planet is to worship the deity concerned with the planet in Trimsamsa. For example, if Sun is in Saturn’s Trimsamsa, then worship Shiva (see table above) for relief from the negative Sun. Also see Dasa/Antar Dasa and then decide the remedy. Similarly if Saturn is in Mar’s Trimsamsa, worship Sun. {tab=Video}
