The Store House of Fortune

Dr. Shanker Adawal

While judging a horoscope, the first thing to decide is to see the strength of the Lagna. Just as the structure made on a Shaky foundation is bound to fall down, in the same way if the Lagna is very weak the horoscope will be valueless. It is for this very reason that the Lagna must be very strong, having combined with or aspected be benefic planets and should be devoid of evil influences. There is one principle that the Lagna should not be occupied by a dusthana lord or that the lord of the Lagna should not occupy the 8th house or afflicted by the 8th lord. It is, therefore, laid down that the lord of the Lagna should always be stronger than the lord of 8th house. If the Lagna is weak, the native there of will be of a very weak constitution, with the result that he will have no vitality, vigour and strong will and strength to earn livelihood for himself and his family.

The next important factor is the 9th house denoting Bhagya or luck or good fortune. It is a trine house wherein resides the goddess Lakshmi. This is considered to be the most powerful trine house amongst other trine houses, namely the 5th and the Lagna. The Lagna is both a Kendra and trine house. The Kendra houses, namely, the 1st, the 4th, the 7th and the 10th houses, are said to be the residence of Lord Vishnu. Hence, the association of the lords of these Kendra and kona houses results in a Raja Yoga, and the native enjoys the full-fledged result of the yoga, if strong and without any sort of evil afflictions. However, it will be most significant to note that if the lord of the Bhagya and Karma houses are placed in a shashtashtaka (6th or 8th), the native will be tossed here and there by such a position, as there will be sort of tussle between the Bhagya and Karma of the native.

In the Zodiacal circle, the sign Dhanus will be on the 9th house, ruled by the best benefic planet Jupiter, Jupiter is said to be Dhanakaraka, Putrakaraka and Vidya Karaka. He is the preceptor or Guru of the Devas and is therefore called the Deva Guru. The 9th denotes Dharma, religion and of or metaphysical knowledge. Dhanus is the sign of hope, anticipation and intuitions. The 9th house is the 5th of the 5th house (Bhavat Bhavam). If the 5th is considered to be the house of Purva Punya the 9th house too is said to be the house of Purva Punya. The 9th house denotes Sanchit karma. There is a saying that a person having no Bhagya is just like an animal. Now let us examine some Yogas in which great significance is attached to the 9th house and Jupiter.

Mukuta Yoga

Mukuta is said to arise if Jupiter is in the 9th from the 9th lord, a benefic is in the 9th from Jupiter and Saturn is in the 10th house. A person born in this Yoga is said to be a king or head of forest tribes or hunters, powerful, evil minded and a successful sportsman. In this Yoga, Jupiter is required to occupy the 9th house if reckoned from the lord of the 9th house. Not only that but there should be a benefic planet in the 9th from placement of Jupiter. Thus, the 9th house and Jupiter both play their significant role in this Yoga.

Nabhi Yoga

Nabhi Yoga is described by Prof. B. S. Rao in his Satya Yoga Manjari that if Jupiter is in the 9th from the Lagna and if the lord of the 9th is in the 11th from Guru combined with powerful Moon. A person born in this Yoga becomes happy, learned, wealthy, honoured by the kings, sympathetic, etc. In this Yoga also the importance is given to the 9th house and Jupiter.

Shri Yoga

Shri Yoga is formed if the lords of the 2nd and 9th join a Kendra and are combined with the lord of that house and aspected by Jupiter the results ascribed to this Yoga are that the native will be an excellent minister, praised by the rulers, conqueror of enemies and lord of many countries after his 22nd year.

Nagendra Yoga

Nagendra Yoga is said to arise when the 9th lord is in the 9th from the 7th house from the Lagna and is aspected by Jupiter. It will be important to note that the 3rd, the 7th and the 11th are termed as Kama Trikona houses. The 9th from the 7th will be the 3rd house which is a Kama Trikona house. So, the 9th lord will be in the 3rd house, from where he will aspect his own house, the 9th house. Moreover, he will be gaining the most benign aspect of Jupiter, the most benefic planet by nature.

Kalidasa in his Uttarakalamrita Khanda IV Sloka 4 gives us three pairs of Yogas as under:-

(1) The lords of the 9th and the 10th if reckoned from the Lagna, when combined together, or occupying each other’s house or in mutual aspects, etc. bestows high position in life to the native.
(2) The lords of the 9th and the 10th when counted from the 9th house, when combined together, etc. gives medium position in life.

(3) The lords of the 9th and the 10th when counted from the 10th house, when combined together, etc, etc. gives small position in life to the native. Let us see the following chart gives in Uttra Kalamrita, translated by Pandit Bhushan V. Subrahmanya Shastri, wherein he states as under:-

“The lords of the 9th and 10th from the Lagna, the lords of the 9th and 10th from the 9th, and the lords of the 9th and 10th from the 10th – each of these pairs being in mutual Kendra position constitute themselves strong Raja Yoga: Sloka 4 (1), (2), (3), (b).” The following horoscope of Sir K. Sheshadri Iyer is given below for reference.

In this chart please note that (1) the lords of the 9th and 10th, viz. Jupiter and Mars (2) lords of the 9th and 10th from the 9th, viz. Mars and Jupiter and (3) lords of the 9th and 10th from the 10th viz. Jupiter and Saturn – all the lords of the above said three pairs occupy Kendra positions to each other, vide IV-4 (1), (2), (3) (b).

Hence the 9th house of luck or fortunes or Bhagya plays its vital role. If the 9th house and its lord are both very weak and severely afflicted, the native’s luck will not help him in any way. The 9th denoting knowledge leads one finally to the path of salvations or to merge in the lord.
