Jaimini Astrology - 7 Step Method III

Having said that let me deal with the horoscopes of some important persons which have been always a source of hot debate and acrimonious controversy. 

I will use in this article, the horoscopes of: 

1) Sachin Tendulkar 

2) Benazir Bhutto. 

and others. 

But first the controversy relating to the Karakamsha must be dealt with. 


Let me first clarify why I use Karakamsha in the birth lagna as the north Indian astrologers do, and not in the navamsha. 

I saw books on Jaimini by south Indian writers who put the Karakamsha (KL) in the navamsha while the north Indian astrologers prepared a full chart with KL in the center in the place of the lagna and put other planets as they are in the birth horoscopes. 

I tested it on horoscopes with me and found that if I used the south Indian method, it caused more confusion which I have explained in my book on Mandook  Dasha (which I do differently than other writers, with very good results) tested on many horoscopes, including mine and got results. I will explain in later.

First let me explain why putting KL in the lagna appears logical to me. 

Results of Karakamsha
B. Suryanarain Rao’s translation of Jaimini Sutras is a mere translation of the sutraswithout any illustration. It was one the earliest books to influence me along with some books in Hindi from Varanasi. It does not solve our problem. Yet some results as given in the book are reproduced here first to show the confusion that gets created as a result of a translation without illustration. Read my comments in brackets which I have added now.

If any of the planets is in the Karakamsha the results will be: 

Sun: Will be fond of public service and will be fond of political activities. (Amitabh Bachchan and all people born on 14 Oct 2010 should be government servants or fond of political activities.) 

Moon and Venus: If the full Moon and Venus are in Karakamsha the person will command great wealth and all comforts. 

Mars: Will prepare medical mixtures and will bear arms. Will live by professions involving preparations in or near fire. (GLNanda would, a stop gap prime minister twice has this. All people born on 19 Oct 2010 will bear arms or in professions involving fire. A friend of mine has this combination in his horoscope and he worked in a bank. He does not prepare medical mixtures but buys medicines only.)

Mercury: Will become a merchant, weaver or manufacturer of clothes will be clever in preparing curios, will be well versed in social and political matters. (PVNarasimha Rao. should have been a trader not a prime minister.) 

Jupiter: Will be well versed in Vedic or religious rituals, will have religious wisdom, will know the rules of sacrificial functions and will have good knowledge in Vedanta. 

(Charan Singh would not have been politician. He knew astrology but did not know Jaimini

Venus: Will become a great official, will become political personage, will be fond of many women and will retain vitality and sexual passion till the age of one hundred years. (Allpeople born in the world on 1 September 2010 will have this combination.

Saturn: Will be famous in his line of work. 

Someone showed me an article of a writer who, I was told, a very keen researcher in Jaimini. He wrote that Saturn in Karakamsha makes one famous in one’s own line. That is a well know Jaimini aphorism. Jaimini says Saturn in Karakamsha or in 2nd house from Karakamsha Lagna indicates the person will be known for his work. 

Let me give an example. 

Cast the horoscope of people anywhere in the world of 8 Sept 2009 according to the Lahiri ayanamsha and see Saturn at twenty nine degrees and 51degrees. All the people born in the world will be known for their work as they will become famous in their line. prasiddha karmajivi. Why were people born at the same time as Indira Gandhi not famous? The reason is that a prediction cannot be based on an isolated factor. 

The north Indian style of Karakamsha
Put the Karakamsha in Dhanu and retain the planets of 8 Sept 2009 as in the birth lagna and you get a different meaning which appeals to me.There cannot be a group of people born all over the world who will become famous only because Saturn will be Atmakaraka and therefore will be in Karakamsha of all the people in the world born on 8 Sept 2009 at any time and in any lagna. The sheer absurdity of taking Karakamsha lagna so mechanically and herding all the people born with Saturn as Atmakaraka must be noticed and discussed by Jaimini scholars. 

1. It should be clear that if the entire Navamsha of karakas are to be used for Karakamsha then:

(a)Anyone who has Sun as the Atmakaraka will invariably have Sun in the Karakamsha also will become public servant and will be in political activities. If such is the case we can look at all horoscopes in which
  Sun is the Atmakaraka and draw a fast conclusion that such persons will be public servants and will be interested in political activities.

(b)Similarly those who have Venus as Atmakaraka will have great sexual virility till the age of one hundred years. 

(c)All those who have the Saturn as the Atmakaraka will be famous in their own line of work. 

Can we jump to such conclusions merely on the basis of the Atmakaraka and its navamsha position in the navamsha chart? It is obvious that it is a fallacious approach. 

Some astrologers use the Karakamsha in the birth horoscope and call it Karakamsha and use the entire navamsha of all Jaimini Karakas and call it Swamsha which appeals to reason. In an article later I will give scanned copies of Karakamsha prepared by north Indian astrologers.    

There is no hint given in any book available in the market to show how the Karakamsha and Swamsha are distinguishable and which one is to be used when for predictive purposes.
