Encyclopedia of Vedic Astrology: Planetary Transit: Fructification of Events, Chapter XI, Part - 1

Dr. Shanker Adawal

11.1 Introduction

11.1.1 The Vedic astrology can size up a chart and predict outcomes so accurately & quickly due to its use of dasha pattern and evaluating the strength of dasha lords. Each planet rules over a dasha/Antar-dasha/ Pratyantar dasha for a fixed period in a systematic sequence. The strength and nature of a planet is assessed by its placement (in sign/ house and rulership), aspects on & by other planets, and conjunction (referred to as PAC) in natal, corresponding divisional and transit chart with reference to the ascendant, Moon and dasha lord. The identification of timing and quantity/ quality of fructification can be done by analyzing & synthesis of dasha & transit of planets. Major period or dasha is further divided into Antar-dasha and Antar- dasha into Pratyantar-dasha periods as operative. Transit is always subservient to dasha/ antar-dasha and only helps to pin point the timing or to intensify reduce their results. Moreover, the two celestial heavy-weights, the Saturn & the Jupiter representing the Kaal (time), also play a significant role in timing of fructification of various events in a native’s life by influencing the concerned house and/ or lord during transit.

11.1.2 In Vedic astrology, there are two kinds of planets-benefic (auspicious) and malefic (inauspicious). Again there are two kinds of planetary states- Natural and functional. The natural benefics are Moon, Mercury, Venus & Jupiter, while natural malefics are Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu & Ketu. The functional  benefic/ malefic status depends on the ascendant, and is another reason why the ascendant is so important. Any planet ruling ascendant or Trikones (5th & 9th) is automatically good, while one ruling the 6th, 8th or 12th house is not good. If a planet simultaneously rules a good and an evil house in a chart, the planet is termed as “neutral” for that chart and lagna.
