3. Karaka/Significator

1. Generally speaking, the characteristics and strength/weakness of various houses (or Bhavas), Signs and planets are the same as given in Parashari system. However in annual horoscopy or Prashna, the Karakas for various elements play a very important role in predictive astrology. In Parashari system, emphasis is given to the lordship of the houses, but in horary & annual horoscopy, emphasis is given to the significations of the planets. Every house and planet represents or signifies various elements. A planet signifies both corporal (living relations) as well as non-corporal elements. The planets are called Karakas of the elements/ matters they signify. Then there are planets who signify certain matters with respect to certain houses/ Bhavas only and their Karakatwa is relevant to these houses only.

2. Principles of judging Karaka’s effects in a nutshell are as under:

a) The positioning / aspect of a house lord in its own house, adds strength to it. The Karaka positioned in the relevant house may be bad, but its aspect it always adds dignity to the concerned house.

b) When a Karaka is in the 1 h house, its significations prosper, but lordship of the planet suffers heavily. E.g. Jupiter in the 2nd house gives prosperity to the houses (2, 5, 9, 11) to whom he is a Karaka, but adversely affects the two houses (Sagittarius & Pisces) of his lordship. Thus one is fortunate in respect of that house whose Karaka is in 12th from the lagna.

c) Karako Bhavanashaya: Significations of any house consist of two parts- corporal and non-corporal. A karaka in his own house afflicts the corporal part only e.g. Mars in 3rd house afflicts younger siblings, Jupiter in 5th afflicts children and Sun in 9th afflicts father. But non-corporal part remains unaffected such as courage in 3rd house, wisdom in 5th and spirituality in 9th house. The affliction by the Karaka as mentioned above is considerably minimized, If this karaka establishes some relationship with the house lord.

d) The conjunction of a house lord and the Karaka in a Trika house (6, 8, & 12) is bad, but their occupation of Kendra/ Trikone house, gets vitality for good if not subjected to Paapkartari Yoga.

e) The Karaka becomes ineffective in a house, if it is conjunct with a malefic.

3. The planets represent various corporal matters in houses mentioned against each as under:

1. Sun-Father in 9th, boss in 10th and paternal uncle in 11th house.

2. Moon- Mother in 4th house.

3. Mars- Younger siblings in 3rd & step-mother in 6th house.

4. Mercury- Adopted son in 5th, Maternal uncle in 6th, business partner in 7th and friends in 11th.

5. Jupiter- Father-in law in 3rd, Son (1st son in 5th, 2nd in 7th & 3rd in 9th house), Husband in 7th, Guru in 9th and older sibling in 11th house.

6. Venus- Wife in 7th house.

7. Saturn – Servants in 3rd house.

8. Rahu- Paternal grandfather in 5th house.

9. Ketu- Maternal grandfather in 12th house.

4. Conclusion

It may be stated that the Varshaphala provides a magnified and closer view of events pertaining to a given year of life of the native. It gives excellent results when integrated with a proper study of the birth chart. Years of practical experience on predictions on Varshaphala/ annual horoscopy have shown that it is basically an offshoot of Parashari system. While delineating annual charts, basic Parashari principles cannot be ignored an have to be followed for correct predictions. The knowledge of the basics of the Parashari system thus becomes essential in order to understand and apply Tajika system for the annual horoscopy. However it must simultaneously be admitted that application of Tajika system has provided a supplementary/ confirmatory role in making predictions in annual horoscopy. Therefore most of the Vedic astrologers follow a comprehensive combined approach while analyzing annual chart.
