Amsha * Amshaka


Dwad-Amsha = 144 Portions

"One-twelfth Portions " of each bhava

disambiguation: the D-12 varga "dwadazamamza-10 " the varga"chart" which represents each graha in the 12th portion of its natal rashi

this dwad-amsha table lists the characteristics of each of the 144 portions of the 360 circle

Each of the 12 rashi have been divided into 12 equal portions and each of these 144 portions = assigned a description.


From: The Brihat Jataka Of Varaha Mihira ", by N. Chidambaram Aiyar:
  • "The name of the first Dwadasamsa of a particular sign is the name of the sign itself.
  • So that the 12 Dwadasamsas of Mesha are Mesha, Vrishabha, Mithuna, etc, ending with Meena.
  • Those of Vrishabha are Vrishabha, Mithuna, Kataka, etc, ending with Mesha.
  • Those of Mithuna are Mithuna, Kataka, Simha, etc, ending with Vrishabha and so on."


Each house divided into Twelfths = table of Meanings

  • Individual meanings assigned to each 1/12th portion of each of the 12 houses

  • Division of the 360-degree radix chart into 144 sub-sections

  • Each amsha (portion) = 2.5 degrees

The dwadamsha of the atmakaraka in navamsha

  • may reveal the spiritual purpose of the present lifetime

Certain of the Dwadamsha are highly benevolent

:

The 9th portion = 20.00 - 22.30 of each bhava = nearly always beneficial. (less so for the 9th portions of dusthamsha)

  • the best of these is naturally the 9th amsha of the 9th bhava = " yogic practices such as Ashta Siddhi, like Anima, Mahima, etc. = makes one a Super Being"

Also the portion matching Dhanushya = the 9th rashi = usually quite beneficial. For example,

  • the 9th rashi of the 3rd bhava brings jewels (9) for the ears (3)

Certain of the Dwadamsha = less benevolent:

for example,

  • the 3rd rashi of the 8th bhava is associated with murder

  • the discordant 6th rashi of the 8th bhava AND the 12th portion of the 6th bhava = associated with imprisonment

  • the discordant 6th rashi of the 12th bhava is associated with legal punishments

  • the deadly 7th portion of the 6th house = "Physical incapability + death-inflicting pains + Incurable diseases "


Dwadamsha = table of meanings assigned to 144 subsections counted from the radix lagna.

  • Disambiguation : different from dwadazamamza-10 , which is the 12th harmonic varga chart specific to parents.

  • Column Headings = 1/12 portion of each 30 degree Bhava


Longevity (Ayur, age, years)

  • Traditionally, the ruler of the 88th Dwadamsha (the 4th Dwadamsha of the 8th house) is considered important in longevity analysis.
