RAMANUJAN KETU 22-12-1887, 6 20 PM ERODE RASI CHART SURYA BUDHA SUKRA KUJA GURU GULIKAN SUKRA KUJA SURYA GULIKAN KETU LAGNA NAVAMSA CHART GURU BUDHA RAHU CHANDRA SANI Education: th th th 4 lord, Budha is in a dusthana 6 house, in Kuja kshetra. Amsaka is in 8 house, makara, Sani th th kshetra. 4h house is occupied by Kuja the vighna 6 lord whose navamsa is in 12 . Owing to this, the native had very difficult formal education, due to family circumstances as well as disinterest in certain subjects though there are positives like: a) parivarthana yoga between Budha and Kuja nd th th and b) the 2 lord Chandra aspecting the 4 house from 10 house.. Mind: th Manokaraka Chandra, is in Guru kshetra in 10 house and in Sukra kshetra in amsaka, aspected th th by 6 lord Kuja from 4 house. Also there is a full aspect of Guru to Chandra. Ensuring an extra- ordinarily developed mind, but with the Kuja given restlessness. Knowledge: nd nd The 2 lord Chandra has been discussed above. Also, the 2 house is occupied by Sani and th Rahu, which in normal conditions curtail knowledge. But here, Sani is the lord of the 9 house and he is in Uccha navamsa. An all important drishti of Guru is again a very positive influence. Karma: th th 10 lord Guru in 6 house though in bandhu kshetram created lot of vighnams (obstacles) in his th work through diseases, financial difficulties, etc. Occupation of Chandra in the 10 house th aspected by 6 lord Kuja assured that there will be lot of support as well as animosity from people towards the native’s works. Bhagya: th nd nd Here, 9 lord Sani is in Karkataka, the 2 house. It is in Ucchamsa along with the 2 lord Chandra which will surely let him fulfill his mathematical pursuits. Its association with Rahu accented its properties of delays and frustrations. Wisdom: th th 5 lord Sukra in Swakshetra with amsaka in mesha, the 11 house. There is of course an th affliction by means of Gulika’s association with the 5 lord, in both rasi and amsa, which shows the poorva janma afflictions, to the wisdom’s lord. Summary: The all important Kendra (1, 4, 7, 10) lords namely Budha and Guru in this case, very critical as th far as health goes, are conjoined in the Roga sthana, the 6 . The native’s life was curtailed with health problems all through. Other than the TB that brought death for him, it is seen from the horoscope that he had severe intestinal issues also. nd Sani’s presence in 2 along with Rahu, did give him difficulties in learning but the budha-kuja th parivartana yoga and Kuja – Chandra association by means of drishti gave the extra-ordinary 5 house possessor, more depth.
