Jaimini Astrology - 7 Step Method
quoting these letters, among hundreds I have, only to show that unless you have healthy respect, with healthier
skepticism, for the pandits, you cannot break new ground and rescue astrology from its primitive state in which
it still thrives.
students bring instances of shocking, primitive meaning of some shlokas from jyotisha books, I tell them to
observe these in many horoscopes and see if it is fitting into the pattern of life as it is in twenty first
century. Otherwise you will go back to primitive astrology because publishers all over the world know how to
sell the rubbish they publish. And there are writers who pay for publishing their books which suits many
publishers. There are writers who tell the publishers that they will not demand any royalty. The truth is that
they are more anxious to announce their arrival through dubious methods.
will not easily come across writers who can synthesize these and put them in proper perspective for modern
life. Ask yourself, as a very intelligent woman
student of ours, asked me after reading a latest version of Phaldeepika and reading the results of the seventh
house and planets placed there, if all this was to be accepted as gospel truth. For some women the seventh house
is entire horoscope.
Placement Of Planets In 7th house Wrt
He suffers mental tension, physical pain
and distress from the wife.
Moon in the 7H gives ample conjugal
comforts and pleasure. The wife is very charming with a chiseled physique.
He may lose conjugal happiness and live a
disharmonious married life.
7th Mercury would tend to bestow a wise and pretty wife to the native.
Jupiter in 7H bestows a beautiful and sagacious wife.
Venus in 7H gives a pretty wife but along
with comes an almost insatiable sexual appetite which may lead to extra marital affairs and marital disharmony
with eventual dire consequences of separation or even divorce.
the 7H gives a serious wife of few words, who is often sad looking and disappointed. This increases the
possibility of separation and marital disharmony.
Rahu directly controls the serpent power
hidden in a man. Rahu is impulsive and must work through the extremes. Rahu in 7H can either inflame the passion
in a man to a point of instability or may extinguish the sex flames completely - either of the way is not good
for conjugal bliss.
Ketu in 7H spoils the conjugal harmony,
creates all kinds of fears.

'Phaldeepika' by Sage Mantreshwara translated by U K Jha Will you accept the view of Mantreshwara or modify it and take a more
composite view in the sociological context of modern life? UK Jha has only translated, contributed nothing
original, not being a commentator. But you
will not easily come across writers who can synthesize these, after deep research, and put them in proper
perspective for modern life.
1.) Take up
the horoscope of Amitabh Bachchan with Rahu in the seventh house with no aspect of any planet and association
with any planet. In interpreting it, remember that he belongs to the glamour world.
Bush 4 Nov 1946, 18:00:00, Midland, Texas, USA with six planets in the seventh and eighth house and remember
that her husband continued to maul English language even after becoming a born again Christian.
Gandhi and her ruined married inspite of Moon being in the seventh house.
Devegowda 18 May 1933, 10.09 Hassan Karnataka with Karka Lagna and Saturn in the seventh house.
5) Bush Sr.
12 June 1924, 10.43 Milton, MA USA with Simha lagna and Mars and Ketu in the seventh house.
I can reel
off instances after instances to show why astrology which had been rescued from the hands of primitive half
literate pandits who had kept alive the tradition of jyotisha somehow (we are grateful to them) was modernized
by B. Suryanana Rao, Dr. B.V.Raman and some of their contemporaries to the extent it was possible. These days
with very intelligent, well educated and argumentative students who do not have respect for
all teachers, the challenge of modernizing
astrology is being met more satisfactorily than ever before. This is to be seen and experienced to be
what Ambica meant when she wrote “I thought I should thank you for grooming me to handle the position I do
today. Your research pattern is so well thought out that it can beat even the best of
produced it here because when I was defending the case of astrology in the Supreme Court on 3 Nov 2003, I was
aware of the vicious arguments against astrology and its primitive interpretations taking us to primitive age
and leading to “saffronization” which was the pet communist argument. While other astrologers who could have
joined as petitioners-in-person and argue in English chickened out, I was left alone, the only astrologer, to
fight the battle against India’s top lawyer, Shanti Bhushan. Because my astrology is modern not primitive,
interpretative in approach, non dogmatic in conclusions and methodical in vast replication, I won the battle.
That is what our students do and shine brilliantly, some of them appear to be super brilliant and are the
future greats of Hindu astrology. Some of the
crooked ones will become Kaal Sarpa Yogis also.
Same is the
case with the ayanamsha. We use, Lahiri’s. If some ayanamsha lunatics come out with different values, let them
battle it out with modern astronomer to prove their point and not run away from the battle. Since I rely on
Jaimini’s karakas, I have found that Lahiri alone gives them correctly for correct results. Other ayanamshas
sometimes convert the Atmakaraka into Darakaraka and the whole sequence and ranking of karakas is turned upside
down. One very sattwick swami from south India, Tamilian or Keralite, by the name Sadashiva Giri had met me many
years ago and asked me to see his ayanamsha. I told him that we were not interested in any astronomical
discussion or even Surya Siddhanta. He said that his ayanamsha was based on divine inspiration (Deva Dutta) and
that publishers in Delhi and the late R. Santhanam had insulted him.
woman, Deborrah Ress said that she would finance the publication of his book if I wrote the preface. I did it
neither accepting his ayanamsha nor rejecting. I asked readers to judge it themselves as I did not want to
insult a swami who was not boastful at all like ayanamsha lunatics I have met often and so many
fought this battle for fifty years and now the new generation of educated astrologer will do it better than what
quote from the research.
in Simha – successful marriages
“In the end, it must repeated that researches must be produced in astrology with evidences to rescue it from
fraudulent, foolish and frivolous astrologers. It must also be remembered that in the case of the Ramayana and the
Mahabharata and other Puranas, the Bhandarkar Institute of Pune has done researches to remove interpolations from
various versions. In the case of astrology such work has not been done. Different publishers have published
different versions of many of these books. For instance, one can see different versions of the Brihat Parashara
Shastra and see some conflicting versions and contradictions in them. It is not difficult to assume that in the
Muhurtha books similar interpolations may have taken place. The prejudice attached to Simhastha Jupiter and
marriages may be an interpolation. At any rate, through our astrological research we see no reason to accept it as
an astrologically valid objection to marriages.”
K.N. Rao 10 September
Let me here
also refer to my argument in the Supreme Court as a petitioner in person in 1990 and 1991 when the reservation
issue was being discussed. I had shown to the court that in both Backward Classes Commission reports of Kaka
Kalelkar 1955 and of B.P.Mandal 1978, astrologers were classified as backwards! The jocular argument I had put
was that in Mandal list of Andhra Pradesh’s backward classes, Vaidiki and Niyogi were mentioned (such was the
abysmal quality of his investigation) and I am a Niyogi Brahmin of Andhra. And known as an astrologer also, I
could claim to be backward doubly. Why do
astrologers want to remain backward now when we can rescue it from narrow and irrational interpretation and make
it a subject higher than any being taught in the universities, more scientific and more helpful and bafflingly
encountered both types of pandits: one who knows some astrology but has a ferocious pride of pedigree and
obnoxious family hauteur and the other immensely likeable scholars with winning humility like Sri Madhura
Krishna Sastri who earn our eternal gratitude for their enormous scholarship and lack of pride and
