Importance of Signs in Tajika

9. As in Parashari, the importance of signs occupying various houses has been stressed in Tajika as well. Acharya Neelkantha in his treatise “Tajika Neelkanthi”, in the 1st part, Sloka 2 to 13, has given the details of the 12 signs of the natural zodiac and brings out the characteristic features, nature and inherent qualities of each of the signs. These are similar to those given by Parashara. However in annual horoscopy and horary, they play more crucial role to influence/ indicate results/ position, especially when placed in lagna of a Prashna/ annual chart. Here also the signs are classified as males and females. All odd signs are males, that is they are passive. There is a classification based on three humours i.e. wind, bile and phlegm. In sloka 15, the author gives clue to remember about various humours governed by each sign. Aries is windy, Taurus is bilious, Gemini is bilious & windy, and Cancer is phlegmatic. Same order applies for next four signs and so on. In vedic system, all types of diseases originates from imbalance of one or more of these humours.

10. The next classification based on mental nature is movable, fixed and dual signs. The movable signs (numbering 1, 4, 7 & 10) indicate a change in activity/ status, whether for good or bad, and there is no going back. The fixed signs (numbering 2, 5, 8 & 11) indicate the nature of fixed ideas and there is no indication of any change in activity or native’s attitude. The dual signs (numbering 3, 6, 9 & 12) indicate indecisiveness of the native on mental plane and uncertainty/ delay in results. Some astrologers believe that first half of the dual signs acts as fixed signs and the second half as movable.

11. The other important classification is of fiery (numbering 1, 5 & 9), earthy (numbering 2, 6 & 10), Airy (numbering 3, 7 & 11) and watery (numbering 4, 8 & 12). The fiery signs indicate quick action, earthy signs material gains & their consolidation, airy signs increased mental activities and watery signs peace & prosperity. The Acharya further suggests that that fiery signs have an affinity towards airy signs and earthy signs towards watery signs. These help to judge mutual compatibility of two persons for marriage or business. There is a prevalent misbelieve that if two persons have same signs in their lagna, they will be friendly. However experience suggests otherwise. It is said that similar poles always repel each other, while opposite poles attract because each gives to the other what it does not possess.

12. Another classification depending on mode of rising, indicates type of results. The Shirshodaya signs (numbering 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, & 11) indicate positive results, where as Prishtodaya signs (numbering (1, 2, 4, 9 & 10) shows negative results and Pisces alone is of dual nature. Another useful classification is based on usefulness of the signs. The signs numbering 4, 8, 11 & 12 are considered fruitful signs indicating success/ good results. Signs numbering 1, 3, 5, & 6 are considered barren signs indicating failure/ serious difficulties in the way. The signs numbering 2, 7, 9 & 10 are considered semi-fruitful signs indicating that success will come only after sustained efforts/ help from others.
