Predictive Techniques of Bhrigu Nadi

Bhrigu Nadi is a classical technique if Bhrigu Maharishi. It is an important limb of Vedic astrology. It follows a different methodology, quite distinct from the Parasara system.

In Bhrigu Nadi system, the methodology to be followed in analyzing the events are (i)there is no concept of ascendant; (ii) the horoscope should be drawn with Aries as No. 1 i.e. the first Sign; (iii) importance is given to the rotation of Jupiter; (iv) Jupiter stays in each Sign for a period of approximately 12 years.

Example: Jupiter in a native’s horoscope is in Aries. Therefore, for all practical purposes, we consider Jupiter to be in Aries for a period of 12 years and its conjunction / opposition etc. with other planets will determine the broad events in the first 12 years for the native. We only take the 7th aspect into consideration and no other aspect, which is again a deviation to be remembered.

Great important is given to (a) the Sign in which the planet is posited; (b) the conjunction of the planets (c) the planet which leads in the conjunction in terms of its degrees; (d) planets which are in the 12th house of a particular planet; (e) planets which are in the next house of the Sign in which a particular planet is placed; and (f) planets which are opposite to the concerned planet. The planet will imbibe the quality of the planets, of which it is a Dispositor of Jupiter and Mercury, it will change its character accordingly and give ascribed results.

Therefore, for each 12 years, the ascendant would be the Sign where Jupiter is placed governing the event of those 12 years, and then for the next 12 years it will be rotated in the next house, which will govern the events for the next 12 years and conforms to the indications of the prime placement. Let us study here, the disposition of Mercury in detail.
