#6 Equinox -Uttarayana and Dakshinayana on the Birth Chart

We know that the Birth chart or the Kundli actually the SKY represented on PAPER.

So lets see how the Sun travels in NORTHERN – UTTARAYANA and SOUTHERN – DAKSHINAYANA in the Birth Chart:

img_1532

The Numbers shown here are NOT the House Numbers BUT RASHI – So When the Ascendant is ARIES this is how the UTTARAYANA and the DAKSHINAYANA is represented on the Birth Chart.

Notice:

  1. Sun is actually in Cancer Sign when it is at Tropic of Cancer (Summer Solstice)
  2. When Sun enters Capricorn (10) Uttarayana or Northward Movement of Sun starts.(Tropic of Capricorn)
  3. Transit of Sun from CANCER (4) to SAGITTARIUS (9) Represents Dakshinayana or the Southward Movement of Sun or the Winter/ Fall/ Autumn Season.
  4. Transit of Sun from CAPRICORN (10) to GEMINI (9) Represents Uttarayana or the Northward Movement of Sun or the Summer and Spring Season.

 

ASTROLOGICAL INTERPRETATIONS:

  1. Say you were born when Sun was in Leo..What Can you interpret ASTRONOMICALLY ?
    1. Ok, So You were born when the Sun was in Daskinayana moving from Tropic of Cancer to Equinox.
    2. Being Leo Sign – the month would be around August
  2. All Malefic planets like Mars, Saturn are active during Dakshinayana and Benefic planets are active during Uttarayana. (there is more – but at present lets limit here)

How to learn the Art of  Prediction through Retrograde Research ?

(For knowers of Astrology)

Do you often look at Birth charts and end up giving wrong predictions ?

And how often do you loose confidence on wrong prediction ?

Why not convert the Prospective way of Prediction to a Research of Retrograde type ?

This is also a way told as the best way to learn astrology by Mr. K N Rao.

Heres an insight that changes the attitude of Learning the Art of Prediction from whether the Prediction went Right/Wrong to focus on Why and How things happened…

Take a look..

Instead of directly predicting things and going wrong. Convert prediction to astrological research of Retrograde Nature

Start with :

To Predict: write your prediction

Explaination: write why you predict so based on astrological principles


Observation
: observe the event when it happens at a later date.

Inference: Infer why you went wrong or how far your prediction proved correct. If wrong why it went wrong and if correct – see what principles you used to arrive at your predictions

Try your approach of Prediction this way – RETROGRADE RESEARCH and see the advantages:

1. Helps you learn

2. Helps you to apply Astrological Principles

3. Helps you understand analytically where you went wrong on which principle and why.

4. Does not make you loose confidence.

Birth Chart and Sky: Planetary Motion -4

The second type of the motion that planets show in sky is PROPER MOTION or their actual motion. This Motion is from WEST TO EAST and from one sign to the other (From Aries then Tauras and then Gemini ….till Pisces and from Pisces back to Aries)

Refer Previous Blog..Continued…

2. PROPER MOTION:

All planets stay in a rashi/sign (Note Rashi is different from House – the house contains a rashi) for a particular period of time. This is the actual time the planets take to revolve around sun. BUT, we are seeing all this from Earth as center.

So, following are planets and time it stays in a Rashi/ Sign:

1. Saturn: 2 and half years in a Sign

2. Jupiter: 1 year in a sign

3. Venus approx 35 days in a sign

4. Mercury approx 15-16 days in a sign

5. Mars, Sun, Venus approx 1 month. Its not exact one month…varies for each planet but is fixed. The exact values I am not giving here as it will make too much jargon to memorize. Understand the concept first.

6. Moon takes 2 and half days to cross a sign/house.

Look at the diagram:

img_1083

NOTICE for PROPER MOTION:

  1. All planets move from WEST TO EAST (From 1st to 7th via 4 – See previous Blogs)
  2. All planets move in ANTI CLOCKWISE MOTION
  3. This is the true motion of planets as they move – irrespective how they appear to move form earth.
  4. Saturn is currently (in diagram) is in Scorpio (8) – 4th house.
  5. After 2 and half years it will move to Sagittarius (in diagram) – 5th House
  6. Jupiter is in 7th house in AQUARIUS (11) and will move to 8th House – Pisces (12) in one year. This is actual motion of planets.
  7. This proper motion is slow – compared to DAILY MOTION.

Ayanamsha

What is Ayanamsha ?

We saw Zodiac in the last blog. Remember there is only one Zodiac. Do not confuse the term Zodiac with Zodiac Signs.

But to locate the Zodiac Belt – there are 2 ways. A zodiac belt may be located by:

  1. Fixed Stars called as SIDEREAL ZODIAC or
  2. Based on apparent Sun position (Equinox) at about spring. (Mar-Apr) called as TROPICAL ZODIAC

We know that Tropical Zodiac is based on Sun placement and it changes by 1 degree by every 72 years.

Remember the old diagram from Last blog on Zodiac Belt:

img_0780

This is simple straight forward Zodiac Belt.

Now consider – for example today i want to locate the Zodiac Belt. I would be locating Both by fixed stars (SIDEREAL) and Sun’s apparent position (TROPICAL). It would be found that THESE TWO WILL NOT COINCIDE. That is because Sidereal Zodiac is Fixed based on stars/constellation. But Tropical Zodiac Belt is based on Sun’s Position in spring (Equinox) and it changes by 1 degree every 72 years. So its not fixed. Therefore, the two cannot coincide.

IMG_0790.jpg

In the above Diagram – Orange belt is the SIDEREAL ZODIAC and the Green belt is the TROPICAL ZODIAC. Note that Zodiac Belt is the same but since they are measured differently there is some difference in their origin. Here the difference is exaggerated in the diagram, just to show the difference.

THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE 2 ZODIACs – SIDEREAL and TROPICAL at any given time is called as AYANAMSHA.

The Sidereal and Tropical Zodiacs coincide in some 28000 to 29000 years.

img_0789

Currently there are many ayanamsha developed by different individuals. Based on dating the time when the coinciding of the Sidereal and Tropical Zodiac happened there are different AYANAMSHA. Like: According to:

  1. Lahiri – Chitra Ayannamsha: 
    1. According to him – Coincidence happened in some 285 AD
    2. Most Commonly used for predictions
  2. Krishnamurti Ayanamsha:
    1. According to him – Coincidence happened in 291 AD
  3. Raman Ayanamsha:
    1. According to him – Coincidence happened in 397 AD

 

Importance of Ayanamsha:

Since planets play in Zodiac Belt wrong calculation of Ayanamsha will result in wrong placement of Planets since zodiac origin is only wrongly calculated. Thereby giving all wrong predictions.

Conversions:

A sidereal zodiacal position can be converted to tropical by adding ayanamsha(Distance) for the year in question to the sidereal zodiac position

Example for year 2000, Ayanamsha was 23 degree 51 minutes as per Lahiri Ayanamsha means distance between Sidereal and Tropical Zodiac was 23 degree and 52 minutes.

As per Raman Ayanamsha the distance was 22 degree 24 minutes. in the year 2000.

If you dont understand give  a reading of previous blogs. This is BASIC. But now-a-days Computer does all calculations so dont worry… You just have to click on the Ayanamsha and the calculations will be done.

Astronomy – The Zodiac Part 2

Please read the previous blog before reading this one.

img_0780

What to See?

  1. See the horizon (labelled in diagram). Horizon is a plane where earth and sky seem to meet.
  2. See where EAST and WEST are placed in the Diagram
  3. Notice the Sun position (it may be around 10 am). See ECLIPTIC – Sun’s path as Solid line with arrows.
  4. See the Zodiac – Area between dotted lines (See previous Blog)
  5. Note that All constellation/Signs and Planets will always be seen IN the Zodiac in the Sky.
  6. See the 1st sign rising in the east – It is CANCER. SO if you are born here at 10:00 am with Sun in Gemini your ascendant is Cancer. So, Ascendant is SIGN RISING IN THE EAST at Birth.
  7. Also Notice planets in the Zodiac – Moon in Tauras, Jupiter in Aries,Venus and Saturn in Pisces, Mars in Sagittarius.
  8. Note that other 6 signs and remaining planets are not visible here. It means that they are visible to other half of of earth which is under Sun’s Shadow that is in Night time.

Important Concepts:

  1. Note that Signs/ Constellation APPEARS TO MOVE as actually earth rotates. Each sign moves after 2 and half hour approximately. So, after 2 and half hour the next sign in East will be LEO. (Actually the signs/constellation forming the Zodiac are fixed – but they appear to us moving as Earth is rotating. Planets also move – they are not fixed but seen on earth as moving in Zodiac along ECLIPTIC.
  2. Each Sign is basically a group of fixed stars called as Constellation.
  3. Signs APPEAR to move as Earth Rotates
  4. Planets Move But within the Zodiac only. They have their own orbits around Sun which is Oval/ elliptical as we know. But here we are Seeing it FROM EARTH AS CENTER. So things change and movement appears within Zodiac.
  5. Don’t Confuse the term ELLIPTICAL (its shape of orbits of planets around Sun) and ECLIPTIC (Orbit of Sun around earth as it appears from Earth)

Astronomy – The Zodaic

Well, understanding of ASTRONOMY is the most important for Astrology.

Our ancestors looked at the sky from earth and made predictions based on planets and their positions.

Though the Earth moves around the Sun.On Earth, Sun appears to be moving around the Earth in a particular orbit called as “ECLIPTIC”

8 degrees north and 8 degrees South of this orbit (Ecliptic) as seen from Earth is a region that forms a band/belt called as ZODIAC/ ZODIAC BELT.

From Earth all Planets and Fixed stars are to be seen in this ZODIAC BELT only. 

Thus, the Zodiac belt may be said to have all fixed star groups – constellations/signs and all planets seem to be moving along this direction.

img_0777

See the diagram – The Solid line around center earth is ECLIPTIC – Sun’s orbit of movement as it appears from earth. (This is a diagrammatic representation). It is a circle though shown here as Oval. Therefore it is of 360 degrees.

This Ecliptic orbit circle with 8 degree North and 8 degree South to ecliptic as seen from earth is referred to as Zodiac is a CIRCLE. Therefore has 360 degrees. Based on constellations found they have been divided into 12 equal parts. Each Part is of 30 degrees. 

Note that Zodiac is of 360 degrees and each degree is 60′ minutes of arc and each minute of arch is divided into 60″ seconds.

ZODIAC has 2 Names though it is ONE ONLY but is measured by different means:

  1. TROPICAL ZODIAC – Commonly used by Western Astrology
    1. Here Sun’s position is calculated based on its apparent position at the start of the Spring which is called as EQUINOX (Vernal Equinox).
    2. It is seen that it changes in 72 years approx by about 1 degree.
    3. Also Known as Movable Zodiac
    4. The 12 divisions of Tropical Zodiac is referred to as “SIGNS”
  2. SIDEREAL ZODIAC – Commonly used by Vedic Indian Astrology
    1. Here the Zodiac Belt is identified based on fixed stars that are seen from earth
    2. It is also known as Fixed Zodiac
    3. The 12 divisions of Sidereal Zodiac is referred to as “CONSTELLATIONS”

 

img_0778

E – represents Earth and Sun is shown in orange. The solid circular line with arrows is the Sun’s apparent orbit around the Earth called as ECLIPTIC. The dotted round circle represents ZODIAC  (the area within inner and outer dotted/dash line circles). The 360 degrees circle is divided into 12 equal parts of 30 degrees each.

#10 What is this House stuff ???

Well you are told there are 12 houses but what are they ?????

Its entire SPACE / SKY represented on a paper in the form of box…

See earth is a sphere. Therefore it has 360 degrees of dimensions. Any circle/sphere in short has 360 degrees.

Our ancestor viewed stars and planet from earth and used them for predictions. So earth is considered as center. So supposing you are on earth and seeing Venus the morning star – how will you tell others where Venus is located in this particular place ?

Well you would say its in the East .. but where in east ??? So to pinpoint with accuracy we have degrees. Know the GPS Co-ordinates to locate a thing like 24 N 12 E ?? yes that’s a location.

unit8l1-1_graph1-img_assist_custom

Consider, the center of this circle as EARTH. Lets say NORTH is at 90 degree, South at 270, West at 180 and east at 0 degree. So you could say that Venus is located at 30 degree in the East. So others could pinpoint it also and you have a place located with respect to earth.

 

So, we all know there are 12 ZODIAC SIGNS. So if we  divide the earth’s circle of 360 degrees by 12 Zodaic Signs… What do we get >>>> 12.

So, there are 12 house in birth chart and each house as an extent of 30 degrees. 

Lets consider an example diagram:

housesegments

So this kind of how a circle around the center on earth is divided. Each house is of 30 degrees. Horizon is a place where earth and sky appear to meet. This diagram is an EXAMPLE AND NOT actual House placement.

So this 12 houses are represented on Birth Chart in the form of box with 12 divisions.

new-kundli

So consider, this Birth Chart as a SKY and you are the earth and you are observing the sky. 

love-marriage-7th-house

See, from earth by looking at the Sky (Birth Chart) where is Venus is placed.

Well, Now you can say – Venus is in 9th house  and placed in Sign of Virgo (6) with Sun.

Amazing isn’t it ??

See yourself as a Sage observing the Sky (Birth Chart) and predicting future.

Can you tell me where moon is placed ???

Answer: Moon is in 5th house in the sign of Tauras…

TAKE-AWAY POINTS:

  1. Your Birth Chart actually represents the SKY at the time at which birth took place with placement of planets
  2. Each house is 30 degrees (Degrees vary – its not exact 30 but for understanding keep it to 30)
  3. Using the Chart as SKY you can tell the Exact location of Planets in the sky
