Chapter 22

How to interpret the benefits of a Mahadasa or grand period of a planet has already been clarified in Ravi Vichar. The same rules apply here too.

If the person’s birth star is Ashlesha, Jyeshta or Revati: Mercury’s Mahadasa is from birth to age 17. At this time the person does not get much personal benefit but the person’s father’s life sees some improvement. If Mercury is in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Libra or Sagittarius, the person’s teeth erupt soon. He starts speaking early in life and his interest is in playing and sports. In Virgo, Capricorn or Aquarius the person’s teeth erupt late and he does not start speaking very early in childhood. In Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, the person’s speech and eruption of teeth are even more delayed. If Mercury is not impacted by a malefic Saturn, the person’s studies get off to a good start and there is no possibility of failure. He has younger brothers. He starts preparing for college and he makes many good friends. If mercury is impacted, the person suffers from childhood ailments, is dehydrated, and suffers diseases in the liver, spleen and colon from eating mud. He fails repeatedly but eventually completes his studies.

In Pushya, Anuradha and Uttarabhadrapada: The Mahadasa is from age 20 to 37. He completes his education and gets married. He has children and begins his career. His mother or father may die. If Mercury is malefic the person remains unemployed throughout the Mahadasa. His education is incomplete. His senses are lost. He has to suffer a prison sentence for having borne false witness or for having written something wrong and defamatory. He does not get married and has to wander around aimlessly. He suffers from headaches, madness and other ailments of the head.

In Punarvasu, Vishakha and Purvabhadrapada: the Mahadasa is from 36 to 43 years of age. In this Mahadasa the person gets stability, children, wealth, glory, prestige, friends and happiness from the wife.

In Aardaa, Swati and Shatataaraka: the Mahadasa last from 43 to 60 years of age. The person’s sons grow up and manage the house. This is the age for introspection. His intellect remains sharp till the end. All his wishes have been fulfilled and the person dies a sober death.

Irrespective of which sign of the zodiac Mercury is in, if it is not malefic or impacted by any evil influence, the person’s life is very ordinary and peaceful. There are no radical developments in the person’s life. But if Mercury is impacted by Mars, the person’s life is full of upheaval. There are constant ups and downs. The person remains unemployed and seeks shelter from others. He contemplates suicide because of the upheavals in his life. Some of them do actually commit suicide.
