What is your Karmic Destiny Part 1

What is your Karmic Destiny?

Among planetary Nodes, Moon’s Nodes are most important the Moon being the closest light near the Earth. As the influence of the Moon is very strong in a natal chart, so the influence of Moon’s Nodes is very important in the life of a soul.

The basic concept is that the Moon’s Nodes work as a vacuum tube connecting the past Karmas with the present Destiny. In other words, Moon’s Nodes bridge the gap between the previous form of soul to the present soul structure. Moon’s Nodes also help to correlate the present soul structure with its possible connection to the future soul form. This automatically brings us to the Hindu concept of some form of reincarnation process. During the course of our visit to foreign countries to speak on Hindu Astrology, we found that more and more persons in the West started in believing the process of Reincarnation and Hindu philosophy of life.

In Karmic Destiny, the first stage is to find out where Rahu and Ketu are placed in the natal chart by Signs and Houses and delineate them by taking into consideration the elements of Signs and Houses. Next we are to find the controlling planets (Planets ruling the signs occupied by Rahu and Ketu. The third stage is to see the aspects between Rahu and Ketu with the natal planets. For conjunctions and opposition, we have the orb upto 10 degree, but for other aspect, the orb is not allowed for more than one degree.

For illustration, let us study the following horoscope. The native’s birth details are : Place of Birth: 77E30, 30N00, Day of Birth: Tuesday (In Hindu Astrology, day is from sunrise to sunrise. He was born on 10th March 1920, before sunrise, so his day of birth will be Tuesday and not Wednesday), Date of Birth: 10th March, 1920, Time of Birth : 4h 34m 38s a.m. I.S.T.

As a simple rule, Ketu tells us about our past Karmas brought in this incarnation and Rahu will tell how we are to redeem them. The redeeming network of Rahu consists of the Grand Trine houses that include the positions of Rahu in the natal chart. Grand Trines are: 1-5-9; 2-6-10; 3-7-11; and 4-8-12 houses. For example, if Rahu is in the 7th house, its distribution network will consist of houses 3-7-11. The areas covered by Rahu are quite important in the Karmic growth during your life time.
