  • [caption id="attachment_1263" align="alignright" width="311"] Sri Bhairava[/caption] The divisions of the signs and the construction of Divisional charts from them are based on certain principles and bear certain characteristics. Principle of equal span The divisions of the signs are normally equal in size except for two very high divisions (Nāḍi and Ardha Nāḍi aṁśa i.e. the D-150 and D-300). For example, the Navāṁśa is the one-ninth division of a sign i.e. 1/9th portion of 30° = 3°20’. The span of every Navāṁśa is 3°20’ arc.


  • Division refers to an orderly division of the 30 degrees of a sign into parts called Āṁśa. The charts constructed on the basis of the ownership of these divisions1 are called Divisional Charts or simply D-Charts. The sign is divided into ‘N’ number of parts where ‘N’ refers to the Varga number. Each part is called an Āṁśa and maps into a specific sign of the D-N Chart.

  • Lessons The one-twentieth potion of the rāśi maps to the 8<sup>th</sup> house in the second cycle and shows the path of spiritual transformation. Each viṁśāṁśa measures 1°30’ and is exactly half the dasāṁśa (D10 measure 3°) showing how the karma we do is influenced by and influences spiritual transformation. Let us learn the great secrets of the tradition related to the viṁśāṁśa.

  • Vivāha is the most important part of the navāṁśa. The greatest secret of our tradition is now public knowledge – the manner in which to study multiple marriages and individual spouses, the relationships and everything about vivāha.

  • Chandrāṁśa is the navāṁśa sign of the Moon. It is an important part of bhāgya (fortune) as fortune manifests within the human society, and society is ruled and controlled by the Moon. The Twelve bhāva from the chandrāṁśa are grouped as follows: Chandrāṁśa: The self (mind) in society, the form of ādi-śaktī that links the native to his society. For example, if in Aquarius, Kālikā Śaktī; if Aries then Caṇḍī, Scorpio shows Cāmuṇḍā etc.

  • We study the anitya bhāgya kāraka … just to recapitulate – anitya kāraka of any bhāva is the dispositor of the lord of that bhāva. Anitya bhāgya kāraka is the dispositor of the 9th lord. In matters of Dharma only Devaguru Bṛhaspati (Jupiter) is the perfect one. Every planet has its own failings and when placed in the 9th house from navāṁśa lagna, it tells us what we need to be careful about in matters of transgressing the guru.

  • Dharma, represented by the bull (of Śiva) called Nandiśvara, has four legs. These legs are Dharma Leg Yuga Lagna Bhāva Tapaḥ (austerity) Kṛta Ākāśa Karma 10 Śaucam (purity) Kṛta, Dvāpara Jala Sukha 4 Dayā (mercy) Kṛta, Dvāpara, Treta Asta Dara 7 Satyam (truth) Kṛta, Dvāpara, Treta, Kali Janma Sva 1 Satya is the only leg that has the strength to stand through all the yuga. Other legs become weak and cannot sustain the burden of sin.
