DELINEATIONS OF SAPTA VARGAS
Rasi. The effects are full in rasi. In other vargas it is half. In an odd rasi planets are said to be an infancy or 6 degrees, in boyhood or 12 degrees, in adolescence or 18
degrees, in advanced age or 24 degrees and in extremes or 30 degrees according the first, second, third, fourth and last six degrees portions respectively advanced by them in the
sign. But in an even sign, these several divisions have to be made regularly in the reverse order.
If there will be a preponderance in strength of benefic planets in the shadvargas, the native will be very wealthy and will live for a long period. If the lagna happens to occupy
krura Amsas in the several shadvargas, the native will be poor, short lived and of a wicked nature.
The word "KRURA" is defined in Phala Deepika as "Shastyamsas or unpropitious l/60th portion of a sign. In odd sign, kruras are 1st, 2nd, 8th, 9th, 10th, 12th, 15th, 16th, 30th,
31st, to 35th, 39th, 40th, 42nd to 44th, 48th, 51st, 52nd and 59th. The result are SAUMYA or propitious ones. In the case of even signs, it is reverse, that is-the shastyamsa
portions stated in krura in odd signs are the propitious or Saumya ones in the even signs and vice versa."
If the lords of amsas are strong, the person concerned will bccome a king. If the lord (1) of rising navamsa, (2) of rising decanate or (3) of the rising ascendant or lagna rasi be
strong, the native will respectively be a person (1) endowed with happiness and comfort, (2) equal to a king or (3) a ruler of earth possessing good fortune.
Hora. The person at whose birth, malefics occupy the Sun's lloia in odd Rasi will be strong and sturdy, cruel in his behaviour and wealthy, while the one with benefics posited in
Moon Hora of even signs will be brilliant in appearance. Will speak mildly, be of a pleasant and of graceful look. If i( lie otherwise, the results will be reverse. If it be mixed,
the effects will be mixed. In the case of a nativity where the lagna and Moon are very strong and the lords of the signs occupies by them be also similarly strong, the person
concerned will be endowed with long life without any sorrow and will be widely renowned.
This chart also denotes emotions and personal emotional ties of the native during the life. It denotes also one's vitality, temperament, colour and intensity of his nature, his
behaviour towards difficulties, stresses and strains.
Drekkana or Decanates : The readings of decanates are generally useful in determining the part of sign under which a person is born, this considerably reducing the limits of
error in the construction of a horoscope. The delineations are to be modified with regards to aspects etc. The decanate indicates one's characteristics and type of a person whereas
the disposition of planets brings out the individuality and destiny from sign to decanate and decanate to degrees.
Neptune, Pluto and Uranus do not exercise specific rule over any of the decanates and they are not considered in Hindu Astrology.
But Sepharial in one of his books stated that allowing for the octave expression of each planet, Pluto will accentuate the vibrations of Mars in the first decanate of Aries and
Scorpio. Neptune will enhance the vibration of Venus in the first decanate of Cancer and second decanate of Virgo, while Uranus strengthens the vibrations of Mercury in the first
decanate of Taurus and second decanate of Aquarius.
In Phala Deepika, it is stated that if the lord of the rising decanate be in his own varga, or associated with benefic planet or be in his own, exaltation or friendly house,
the person will be endowed with all good qualities, will always be pure, clever, long lived, merciful and wealthy, will possess children, will be widely renowned and enjoy all
comforts in a royal style.
Phala Deepika provides through sages that the last decanates of Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Libra and Gemini, the first decanate of Sagittarius and Aries, the middle one of Virgo andGemini are termed Ayudha Drekkanas or Armed drekkanas. The first decanates of Aquarius and Leo and the middle one of Libra are Vulture faced. The last decanate of Taurus is a bird,
and the first decanate of Cancer has a face like a pig.
Also the first decanate of Scorpio, last one of Cancer and Pisces are termed serpent decanates. The second of Aries and Taurus, the first of Leo and last of Scorpio are called
quadruped decanates. Persons in whose case where rising decanates indicate inauspicious results as such one will be without wealth, happniness and cruel in disposition. Vile in
character and indigent. In a dual sign, the three decanates in their order will be dhama or bad, Madhyama or moderate and Uttama or good while in the case of movable signs, the
order will be reversed. In a fixed sign, the order will be bad, good and malefic.
The decanates of Moon are of special importance. The Moon if posiled in her own or a friend's decanate, will be beautiful and have good qualities. If Moon has attained Uttama varga it
will also make him very lucky. If she is posited anywhere else, she will endow the native with such qualities as belong to the planet owning the house occupied by her.
With the above guidelines, the author does not feel necessary to provide details of each decanate under each sign as these are available in many Western books written by competent
In short this chart indicates family ties and limitations which are imposed on the native's hopes and aspirations. Those ties conflict many times with the desire and career of the
native and the manner in which these are resolved or made to cooperate.
