Begin DIRECT QUOTATION Chapter 45. Avasthas of Planets

1. O sage, you have earlier stated that the Avasthas (states) of planets be considered in the context of planetary effects. Be kind to tell me about the same.

2. O excellent of Brahmins, various kinds of planetary Avasthas have been expounded. Out of these, I tell you the summary of infant and other states (in the first instance).

3. INFANT STATE ETC:

Infant, youthful, adolescent, old, and dead are the states of planets placed in the ascending order at the rate of six degrees in odd signs. This arrangement is reverse in the case of even signs.

4. RESULTS:

One fourth, half, full, negligible, and nill

are the grades of results due to a planet in infant, youthful, adolescent, old, and dead states.


5. AWAKENING, DREAMING, AND SLEEPING STATES:

If a planet is in its own sign or in exaltation, it is said to be in a state of awakening (or alertness).

In the sign of a friend or of a neutral it is in dreaming state,

while in enemy's sign or in debilitation it is in a state of sleeping.

6. According to a planet being in Awakening, Dreaming, Sleeping states, the results due to it will be full, medium, or nil.


7. OTHER KINDS OF STATES:

There are nine kinds of other states, viz. Deepta, Swastha, Pramudita, Santa, Deena, Vikala, Khala, and Kopa.

8-10. If a planet is

Depending on such a state of the planet, the house occupied by it will obtain corresponding effects.

SALAJJITA

  • ashamed, abashed
  • with bashfulness and love and compassion

GARVITA

  • haughty, conceited, proud

KSHUDITA

  • hungry

TRUTHITA

  • broken, divided, chapped

MUDITA

  • delighted, joyful, glad, rejoicing in
  • a partic. sort of servant
  • joy, gladness, complacency
  • sympathy in joy
  • a kind of sexual embrace
  • a partic. Siddhi

KSHOBITA

  • shaking, agitation, disturbance, tossing, trembling, emotion
  • (in drama) an emotion that is the cause of any harsh speeches or reproaches

11-18. YET OTHER AVASTHAS:

  1. Lajjita
  2. Garvita
  3. Kshudita
  4. Trushita
  5. Mudita
  6. Kshobhita

are the other kinds of (six) states due to the planets.

Placed in the 5th house if a planet is associated with a node or with the Sun, Saturn, or Mars, it is in Lajjitavastha. (BPL: Salajjita Avastabha)

If a planet is in exaltation or in Moolatrikona, it is Garvitavastha.

The Avastha is Kshudita if the planet is in an enemy's sign, or conjunct an enemy or aspected by an enemy or even be in conjunction with Saturn.

If a planet is in a watery sign and be in aspect to a malefic but not a benefic, the Avastha is called Trushita.

If a planet is in a friendly sign, or conjunct or aspected by a benefic or is conjunct Jupiter, it is said to be in Muditavastha.

If a planet is conjunct the Sun and is aspected by or conjunct a malefic or is aspected by an enemy, it is said to be in Kshobhitavastha.

The houses occupied by a planet in Kshuditavastha or Kshobhitavastha are destroyed.


19-23. The learned should estimate the effects due to a house in the manner cited above ( with the help of various kinds of avasthas), after ascertaining the strength and weakness (of various planets).

Weak planets cause reduction in good effects while stronger ones give greater effects.

If a planet posited in the 10th house in Lajjitavastha, Kshudhitavastha or Kshobhitavastha, the person will always be subjected to miseries.

If a planet in the 5th house is in Lajjitavastha, there will be destruction of progeny, or there will be only one surviving child.

Surely the wife of the native will die if there is a planet in the 7th in Kshobhitavastha or in Trushitavastha.


24-29. EFFECTS OF GARVITAVASTHA ETC.:

A planet in Garvitavastha will cause happiness through new houses and gardens, regalhood, skill in arts, financial gains at all times, and improvement in business.

A planet in Muditavastha will give residences, clothes, ornaments, happiness from lands and wife, happiness from relatives, living in royal palaces, destruction of enemies, and acquisition of wisdom and learning.

A planet in Lajjitavastha will give aversion to God, loss of intelligence, loss of child, interest in evil speeches, and listlessness in good things.

A planet in Kshobhitavastha will give acute penury, evil disposition, miseries, financial debacles, distress to feet and obstruction to income due to royal wrath.

A planet in Kshudhitavastha will cause downfall due to grief and passion, grief on account of relatives, physical decline, troubles from enemies, financial distress, loss of physical strength, and an eclipsed mind due to miseries.

A planet in Trushitavastha will cause diseases through association with females, leading over wicked (or evil) deeds, loss of wealth due to one's own men, physical weakness, miseries caused by evil people, and decline in honor.

30-37. CALCULATION OF SAYANA AND OTHER AVASTHAS:

I'll now tell you of the avasthas viz. Sayana, Upavesana, Netrapani, Prakasana, Gamana, Aagamana, Sabha, Agama, Bhojana, Nrityalipsa, Kautuka, and Nidra, and the Chesthas of such avasthas.

Note the number of the stars (from Asvini) occupied by the planet for which Avastha is to be calculated.

  • Multiply that number by the number denoted by the planet (Sun 1, Moon 2, etc.).
  • The figure so arrived at be again multiplied by the number of Navamsa the planet is in.
  • Add to this the number of birth asterism, the number of ghatis of birth and the number of signs the ascendant gained from Aries.
  • This figure be divided by 12 and the remainder will indicate the corresponding Avastha of the planet.

The sub state in the said Avastha can be found out thus: multiply the figure denoted by the Avastha concerned ( Sayana 1, Upavesana 2, etc.) by the same figure and increase it by the figure denoted by the Anka value for the first syllable of the native's personal name.

Divide the product so obtained by 12. The remainder there of be further increased by constant planetary increments thus: Sun 5, Moon 2, Mars 2, Mercury 3, Jupiter 5, Venus 3, Saturn 3, Rahu 4 (and Ketu 4).

(Here the planet means the one for whom the the sub state is being known.) The product so arrived at be divided by 3. In the process if the remainder is 1, it is Drishti; if 2 Cheshta, and if 0 Vichestha.


38-39. EFFECTS OF CHESTA ETC:

If the sub state is Drishti in an Avastha, the results being stated for the Avastha will be medium, full in Chestha, and negligible in Vichestha. The good and bad effects of planets be deciphered based on the strength and weakness of the planets. In exaltation, the planets reveal effects in a pronounced manner due to avasthas.
