Dr. Shanker Adawal

The Ashtakvarga system is very useful in the predictive astrology for predicting the results of planetary Mahadashas and Antardashas and the transits of the planets through various signs of the zodiac. This system is based on the eight constituents and in this system the eight constituents are the seven planets and one Ascendant of the horoscope. Rahu and Ketu are not taken into consideration in this system and these two are excluded while analysis as per this system.

The term Ashtakvarga is a combination of two Sanskrit words, the first is `Ashtak’ which means eight and the next word is `Varga’ which means section. It is a unique system which considers eight sources of energy to which each planet in a horoscope is subjected to.

As per Ashtakvarga system each of the eight constituents, namely the Ascendant, Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn, cast the auspicious rays, which is represented by the Shubha Bindus, or the auspicious points or the Shubha Rekhas at certain fixed places or the houses with respect to its position in the horoscope.

Based on the information of these auspicious effects of these constituents the Prastarashtak Varga tables of all the eight constituents are prepared with reference to the horoscope chart. After applying the certain reductions, the sign wise auspicious points of each constituents are added and these points are called Bhinashtak Varga points.

And finally, the Sarvashtak Varga table is prepared which shows the Bhinashtak Varga points for each the constituent. The Sarvashtak Varga points are obtained by sign wise addition of the Bhinashtak Varga points.

The Bhinashtak Varga points and the Sarvashtak Varga points, thus obtained as per the above system, are used in accordance with the following manner in the interpretation of the horoscope charts:

a) The Bhinashtak Varga points of a planet as per its position in a particular sign in the horoscope determines the type of result it will give during its Mahadasha and the Antardasha periods and during its transit across the various signs of zodiac.

b) The Sarvashtak Varga points of a house based in the sign of zodiac falling in it in a horoscope determine the relative strength of the house for general assessment of a horoscope and predicting the results during the planetary Mahadasha and the Antardasha periods and during the transit of the planets across these signs of zodiac.

Application of the Bhinashtak Varga points

Using the Sarvashtak Varga table of the horoscope, Bhinashtak Varga points of all the planets must be noted as per the signs in which the planets are positioned. The maximum number of Bhinashtak Varga points a planet can have is eight. Planets with more than 4 points give comparatively better and favourable results than those planets which have less than 4 points, and they give comparatively poor results to the native.

The indications or the results of the Bhinashtak Varga points, in regard to the various planets, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn, are discussed below:

1. Moon:
The Moon having 6 or more Bhinashtak Varga points and particularly when it is placed in the 6th 9th or 11th house then it bestows the native with riches, wealth and financial prosperity. The intensity, extent and the strength of the result depends upon the lordship of the Moon, its auspiciousness and strength.

The waxing Moon even with 5 Bhinashtak Varga points makes the native rich, wealthy and prosperous in life.

If the Moon gets positioned in the Kendra houses, namely the 1st 4th 7th or the 10th house, and has more than 6 Bhinashtak Varga points, then the native becomes learned, scholarly, intellectual, rich, wealthy and financially prosperous in his life.

Moon placed in the 4th house with 6 Bhinashtak Varga points in the horoscope of a Cancer Ascendant and at the same time Jupiter is placed in its sign of exaltation I the Ascendant then it gives learning, intellect, riches, wealth and financially prosperity to the native in his life.
