Astrology is founded on the “Doctrine of Karma”. Infact, destiny depends upon Sanchita Karmas, generated by one’s action in the past. Logically, destiny would depend and be commensurate with the past karmas. This makes destiny a predetermined factor and is clearly irrevocable, as past Karmas cannot be modified or erased. Even knowledge of part karmas spread over number of lives, we might have experienced, is not feasible to a normal person. Happening in lives being the result of one’s own past karmas, planets do not cause events in one’s life. Yet in Astrology, we are very much concerned with the movement of planets in predicting the future of a person and sequence of events, he is likely to face in his life. The secret of Astrology is in this paradox. Once we get to the basic truth, the contradictions disappear.
The effect of one’s action “Destiny” remains dormant till such time, it is able to manifest as a result and thus expend itself. The interval between the action and its result, we may call it the incubation period, extends over several life spans. In order to understand the nature of results, one needs to have access to the knowledge of destiny between the period of action and its results. Such an access is beyond the means of the human senses. One will have to transcend the boundary of physical knowledge to get a vision of the truth about the working of the forces of Destiny. Intution plays an important role in correct predictions.
The native is always interested to know precisely the timing of events that are likely to be happen in his life span. The importance of dasha/ antardasha cannot be over emphasized yet it remains the most important tool for timing of events. The findings achieved by dasha/ antardasha can further be improved by a combination of application of Divisional Charts, Varsha Phal, Gochar, Ashtakvarge etc. Though as many as 42 dasha system have been propounded by Maha Rishi Prashar but most commonly used Vimshotri dasha with as assumed human life span of 120 years is largely followed by scholars, students and practioners of Astrology. This is more frequently used for the inherent simplicity of the mechanism of Vimshotri system and convenience of its application resulting in precisely accurate predictions. Vimshotri dasha is also known as Nakshatra dasha, as it is the lord of the Nakshatra occupied by the Moon at the time of birth of a native that determines the initial dasha.
The birth chart of the native with the ascendant and other houses, the planetary disposition, the interaction between the planets by conjunction or aspect, the planetary yogas both beneficial and adverse generated by the planets reveal to the judicious, perceptive eyes of an experienced astrologer, the broad pattern of destiny of the native in terms of his physical stature, mental outlook, personality traits, and important events and conditions in the different periods of his life. These events both favourable and adverse manifest largely during the main/ sub periods of the planets concerned. These dasha/ antradasha indications are liable to modified by the influence of the current movements of the planets, which is known as Transit (Gochar). Therefore, for any meaningful delineation of dasha/ antarasha results, the current movement of the planets, especially those of the slow-moving planets like Jupiter and Saturn needs to be studied and their influences taken into consideration.
It is in this context, considering the importance of the transit of planets in the life of the native’s that the present work has been compiled. In transit, it is the radical Moon that is the pivot. The Moon is the significator for the mind, its various actions and emotions. The sign position of the transiting planet in relation to the natal Moon, it is considered to determine whether the transit results will be adverse or favourable. As it is logical, the relative position of various planets other than in relation to Moon has been considered and a separate chapter on Transit and Ashtakavarga has been added.
Brihat Prashar Hora Shastra, Brihat Jataka, Saravali, etc. have referred to planetary transits in a very subtle way. Phaldeepika, Kala Prakasika Jataka Bharnam, Yavana Jataka have given the techniques of Transit, in detail, where the delineation of transit results of planets is not only confined to their sign positions with reference to the natal Moon but also to the transit positions in terms of a planets transit in the 12 signs from the ascendant onwards and also in the 12 places from each of the planets including itself.
The transit results of the slow moving planets like Saturn, Jupiter and Mars are more pronounced and have a decisive role to play in predicting specific important events in this native’s life.
An effort has been made to consider all the explicit factors enumerated in classical works and present the same to the reader for effective use in day-to—day life. The role of Moorti Nirnaya in making an assessment of the affects of Saadhe saati, Mahadasha/ Antardasha in relation to transit and subsequent delineation of horoscope have been elucidated. Application of Ashtakavarga for predicting the benefic or malefic planetary effects on a particular day, a week or a month, has been explained in detail. Sarvatobhadra Chakra plays an important role in transit analysis. A detailed procedure for application of Sarvatobhadra chakra has been discussed at length, which will prove extremely useful for accurate predictions. This is an auspicious chart used for timing of events and muhurat, which is not commonly used because of its comprehend nature. The reader will find the explanations easy to comprehend and apply with precision.
