12.8 Example Chart No. 9; Accident of Mohan Singh

Transit Chart as on 30th Apr 2003

In the natal chart, the dasha is of Mercury-Mars. Mercury is 9-12th lord in 6th house and Mars as a Markesh, being 2-7th lord is in 12th of Mercury & aspected by Rahu. Venus, the karaka of accidents, is retrograde, in Rahu-Ketu axis and in inimical sign of Mars. In transit, on 30 Apr 2003, Saturn has just begun transit in 4th from natal Moon (Dhaiya) and Sun, Moon & Mercury are again placed in 11th (6th from 6th) house aspected by Mars from 8th house.

In Sarvato Bhadra Chakra, the relevant components are: - 1st Letter- Ma Vowel- O: Moon sign- Pisces: Birth Nakshtra – Uttar Bhadrapad Lunar Tithi – Rikta (14th); Day of birth – Friday; Only Saturn has fast speed.

In the Chakra, the Moon is placed exactly over natal Venus (R), which is in 2nd from natal Moon and 7th from the Ascendant, both being Marak sthan. Transiting Mercury (R), being in Bharini, has Vedha on Tithi (14th), day (Friday), vowel (O) and on Sign Pisces. Thus three out of five components are afflicted. The native had a serious vehicular accident and his right arm was fractured. He also had injuries on his head & face as Moon & Mercury were both in Aries. However his life was saved as there was no vedha on the letter and the Nakshtra of the native.

12.9 Conclusion

The Sarvato Bhadra Chakra is a very useful tool with the astrologers to study transit planets vis-à-vis natal chart. Along with dasha system, it can be gainfully used to fix an auspicious Muhurat, in timing important events in a native’s life, in horary, in mundane astrology, or predicting rise & fall of market prices or for natives whose natal chart is not available. However remember that Sarvato Bhadra Chakra as normal transit is subservient to natal chart and should be studied accordingly and not in isolation.
