Divisional [Harmonic] Charts

Wikipedia: Varga

see Ernst Wilhelm's free video Introduction to Parashari Varga

**Accuracy of divisional charts depends entirely on accuracy of birth time .**

Varga charts can be exceptionally useful.

However, if accurate birth time is not available, divisional charts are misleading, and should be ignored.

Q:Should I predict events from the behavior of the lords of the radix bhava alone? Can I use the effects of the lords as they rule the "bhava" of the navamsha D-9 or dashashamsha D-10? A:

The blooming of the seeds of expectation produces that which we experience as conscious, external, material events. Material experiences are mapped in the radical nativity * not in varga. Vargabhava are extrapolations from positions, not the original positions

The timing of the Vimshottari dasha should be expected to produce effects of radix mainly.

However one exception due to its intensely psychic nature is the timing of marriage which is determined via the lords of navamsha 1-7 and the transit of Rahu-Ketu across key axes is either radix or navamsha.

BPHS Ch. 7, Shloka 1-8:

Parashara says,

"Now, I will explain the use of these sixteen divisions.

  1. The physique from Lagna

  2. wealth from Hora

  3. Happiness through co-born from Drekkhamsha

  4. fortunes from Chaturthamsha

  5. sons and grandsons from Saptamsha

  6. spouse from Navamsha

  7. power (and position) from Dashamamsha

  8. parents from Dwadazamamza-10

  9. Benefits and adversities through conveyances from Shodazamamza-10

  10. * worth-ship * worship from Vimshamsha

  11. learning from Chaturvimshamsha

  12. strength and weakness from Saptavimshamsha

  13. evil effects from Trimshamsha

  14. Auspicious and inauspicious effects from Khavedamsha

  15. All indications from both Akshavedamsha and Shashtyamsha

  16. These are the considerations to be made through the respective vargas.


  • The bhava whose lord is in a malefic Shashtyamsha will diminish, so say Garga and others.

  • The bhava whose lord is in a benefic Shodazamamza-10 flourish.


This is how the 16 vargas are to be evaluated."

This chart is from Das Goravani at www.gorvani.com :

About Varga Information:

Varga characteristics reflect a more subtle astral patterning that is ultimately determinative: like the iny spring which has the programming (destiny) to eventually become a great river.

It is the same with the human mind. Changes made to the small thoughts, embedded within one's total belief system, can yield huge material improvements through the"trickle down effect"

  • That tiny spring is not physically big or heavy like the full-grown river. At the source, it is fairly easy to redirect it. Yet, intentional changes made to a small originating and determinative thought can have massive"downstream" consequences ".

  • Changing the nature of that tiny spring can change the course of a great river!

  • With that awareness in mind, let us approach the study of varga charts with an interest in isolating some of the more subtle and mentally"manageable" thoughts that are more easily amenable to positive adjustment.

  • Expectations revealed at the varga level are purely thoughts and they are absolutely amenable to conscious control.

The logic of divisional ["harmonic"] charts :
  • All of the divisional charts show the field of psychic expectations created by the accumulation of one's past-life experiences. There are specific, largely subconscious, fields of expectation which we act out as if they were a script.

  • OK, they are a script! As always it is possible to re-write the script but only if one becomes conscious of the deep-seated psychic patterns lodged in the depths of the subconscious mind.

  • Most people walk through these scripts - good and bad, easy and difficult - like robots. The field of expectation is simply the result of accumulated experience which predisposes one to react in predictable ways.

  • Usually there is a repeat of the expected behaviors, the treatment we receive as children. Then, it is repeated again in adulthood vis--vis all the adult roles - marriage, career, raising one's own children, handling parents and siblings, etc.

  • There is a set of expectations for each of life's basic undertakings: marriage, children, career, wealth, parents, home, education, etc. You name it, it is the fruit of something which happened in parallel lives . Therefore, everything can be assigned some role in some varga!

The three most psychically complex relationships we have in this life involve the partner, children, and parents.

Therefore the most frequently used divisional charts are:

Some of the varga separate the portfolio of one radix house into several specific micro-focus charts. E.g., matters of radix bhava-4 which includes all types of protection and support, are distinguished by

  • D-4 Chaturamsha expresses the general state of social, emotional, physical, and economic security - food, clothing, shelter, cultural acceptance, and basic manners

  • D-16 Shodazamamza-10 is concerned strictly with vehicles,

  • D-24 Chaturvimshamsha (Siddhamsha) is concerned specifically with access to the power of Education, as the strongest method of gaining security and strengthening one's cultural roots.

Varga characteristics do not override radix characteristics.

Rather the role of the radix graha within the varga which are relevant to the question, will supplement and confirm the radix prognosis for the matter in question.

  • Exempli gratia, for matters of education , radix bandhupathi-4, ruler of bhava-7 and radix Budha are is the primary karaka.

  • bandesha-4 is usually the strongest of these, and bandhupathi-4's radix character will likely set the paradigm for foundational schooling in this lifetime while yuvatipathi-7 ruling 4th-from-4th and diploma-karaka Budha contribute thematic variations within that paradigm.

  • For Thula lagna and Vrizchika lagna bandhupathi-4 = Shani. This native works hard to utilize whatever educational opportunity is allotted to them. Shani's character as defined by Shani's rashi, bhava, yoga, and drishti received, is determinative in predicting education for the native .

  • However, to fully understand the limits and achievements regarding education for the native, we must see not only the obvious role of Shani (and Shukra yuvatipathi-7 and Budha) but also we must check the role of Shani (and to a lesser extent Shukra yuvatipathi-7 , Budha, and any graha involved in a parivartamsha yoga with Shani) within D-24.

  • (Note that other varga related to bandhusthana need not be consulted to answer a question about education. D-4 which is for the shelter and prosperity aspect of bandhu, and D-16 which is for the vehicles, are not relevant.)

Varga charts do not *define* the native 's experience in the assigned area, but rather provide *confirmation* of radix and navamsha significations. If confirmation of radix/navamsha strength does not occur in appropriate varga, career expectations drawn from D-1 and D-9 should be reduced.

When the lord of any varga is empowered in radix (whether a powerful benefic or a troublesome powerful malefic)

one has programmed highly significant spiritual information into the web of relationships that one expects to encounter in the environment described by that varga.

  • E.g., if the lord of D-20 is strong, spiritual practice is a site of profound self-revelation to the native . The spiritual path in this case may be smooth (as in a wonderful benefic) or ragged (as in a violent malefic) but the path is crucially important in this lifetime.

  • If the lord of Dreshkhamsha-3 is strong in radix, then teamwork, siblings, group mental process, competition, and self-made financial well-being are powerful venues for self-realization.

  • Mahadasha of the varga lord and its bhukti periods will emphasize matters of the varga whose lord is strong in radix.

  • Self-revelation is required to connect us with missing (subconsciously concealed) aspects of ourselves.

  • When we get all the pieces of the Self puzzle, we are whole and at that moment of wholeness we know God. It is possible to advance on the path toward realization using any environment, any set of relationships, any mirrors we choose.

  • If dazamamza-10 lord is strong in radix, the native is choosing career, public service, and earthly power as a vehicle for self-knowledge on the road to God-realization.

  • The dazamamza-10 may also be read"internally" that is, the same method as reading the radix, to very finely tune the profile of profession.

How to read the varga charts:

One method of approach is to read the vargas the same way you would read the radix chart, using the standard meanings of the bhava and yoga. E.g.,

  • he intra-D-3 7th house of the D-3 [Drekkana] confirms your sibling's marriage, business contracts and capacity to make agreements.

  • he internal 10th house of the D-9 [navamsha] confirms your spouse's career and public standing.

Also read the role which the radix house lords assume within the varga.

radix karmesha-10 should be strong in dazamamza-10 to confirm maximum public leadership

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points George W. Bush * radix karmesha-10 uttama-Kuja in 7th dashamamsha

  • ruler of bhava-7 should be strong in navamsha to confirm a happy marital situation

  • radix vidyapathi-5 should be strong in saptamsha to confirm benefits from children

Also in reading the varga's also pay special attention to the karaka house.

  • the 10th dazamamza-10 is especially important for career. World leaders in Politics almost uniformly have a powerful 10th dazamamza-10 .

  • the 7th navamsha is key to spouse's personality.

  • the 12th dwadazamamza-10 reveals character of parents.

  • Etc.

A few practice rules for reading varga charts are quite different from the way we read radix charts:

  1. the intra-varga configurations (relative yogas etc.) are significant in the interior psychological and reflective life of the native, and they do rather precisely map out the interactive mechanisms on the material, astral, causal and spiritual planes (and subdivisions of those planes).

  2. But frankly most people do not possess the level of reflective awareness to realize that they are subconsciously causing their own effects!

Except for the lagna lord of each varga, whose relative position intra-varga is so prominent psychologically that the native will often recognize its effects, reading intra-varga bhava-lordships will not produce much useful insight regarding actions on the material plane.

the Jyotishi can described in great details the subtle belief-system interactions defined by D-27 Bhamsha -- but one who does not objectively observe one's own paradigm of belief will hardly recognize any truth to this Bhamsha analysis.

  1. For a more vivid and real-world explanation of the event-triggers and their material consequences, read the effects of varga lordship from the behavior of that varga bhava-lord in radix.

Exempli gratia, the ruler of the 6th navamsha is a trouble-maker in marriage. Periods of the rogesha-6 in navamsha causes the spouse to create or experience a loss of marital agreement. If, within the navamsha only, the native would have rogesha-6 occupying the D-9's lagna, then this native is probably an instigator of one's own marital conflict. However the native is unlikely to recognize this pattern because he very much perceives the conflict to originate with the spouse.

The nature of the trouble-making behavior is more vividly described by the lord of the 6th navamsha's behavior in radix. , The explanation provided by reading the navamsha as if it were an independent chart like radix and evaluating the behavior of rogesha-6 within navamsha only, will be much more psychological and too ephemeral for most natives to comprehend. and much less by his behavior inside the navamsha.

  1. Varga planets are seen only as natural challenger papagraha or natural pleasure-givers subhagraha.

    • Budha, bright Chandra, Guru and Shukra are always benefic.

    • Dark Chandra / Surya / Shani / Mangala / Rahu-Ketu are always troublesome.

    If the dasha/bhukti lord = lagnesha of a kendra of a varga = the period of this lord will give strong results in matters of the varga. E.g. in periods of the Moon, varga with Karkata rising are activated. Or, if Chandra rules the 10th dazamamza-10 or the 10th navamsha, career can be expected to intensify. A key method for predicting whether any undertaking will fare well = determine whether the mahadasha pati and bhukti-pati will prosper in the relevant varga.

  2. All the usual yoga apply in varga readings, except for those yoga which depend on bhava-lordship.

  3. Planets that gain strength in the radix also benefit their varga position. Exempli gratia, a planet which is retrograde * vakri in radix or Vargottamshain radix-varga carries good auspice. Bright Moon in radix does well in all varga.

Marriage timing is (normally) predicted to occur during the bhukti of ruler of navamsha-7 or lagnesha-1 or Shukra or Rahu, simultaneous with gochara Rahu-Ketu visiting a key partnership axis = lagna of Chandra, lagna of R-K, or 1st bhava lagna of the D-1 or D-9.

First of course, the wedding must occur. But once the marriage is sanctified, will it fare well?

That depends largely on the health of the navamsha, and the strength of current mahadasha and bhukti lords. Probably more influential is the mahadasha pati, although a very long-running bhukti, such as Shukra/Shani might also be very influential in marriage.

If the mahadasha pati occupies a comfortable bhava within the navamsha* and is also a natural pleasure-giver (Chandra Shukra Guru) then all is well. A papagraha in a kendra or trikona is generally manageable with normal adult intelligence. A natural challenger (Mangala Shani Surya) in a navamsha dushthamsha may present a challenge to craft a balanced environment within the conditions of that amsha . If circumstances in the navamsha are bad enough, it would be wise to delay the marriage or, if that's not possible for family reasons, be exceptionally cautious in all marriage communications, whilst the less benevolent mahadasha remains in effect.

  • So, look to the navamsha first and foremost for predicting the prosperity of any undertaking. An event might well occur, but its effects can be good or ill.

  • For matters of career, a new position may well be obtained, during the bhukti of 10th lord or Surya.

The current mahadasha lord must be favorable in the dazamamza-10 for true excellence in public service and full recognition of leadership to flower.

IMO, the deepest insights available in Jyotisha come through recognition of the matching energies that link us into various other people, environments, and experiences.

Jyotisha has the remarkable power to show us how we are creating our own reality in real time.

It is like a movie script, showing not only the character's lines but also their motivation and history!

This insight comes from the INTERACTION BETWEEN THE RADIX AND THE VARGA CHARTS.

to locate the point of origination of any situation or relationship, find the psychological "seeds " of matching energy within ones own character. Find the expectations, preconceptions, or other subconsciously driven reactive patterns which cause repeating situations in life. If you can consciously alter the seeds, you can change the fruit! Karma is resolved through this knowledge.

  • to see the energy in YOU that IS CREATING YOUR REALITY - children, career, wealth, education, spiritual development, parents, siblings, etcetera - follow these three steps:

  • the radix shows real-time material life. Locate the ruler of the radix house which signifies the matter at hand - bhava-7 for marriage, bhava-10 for career, etc.

  • the Amsha (varga) shows the fruits of that reality. Find that ruler in the relevant amsha (D-9 for marriage, D-3 for siblings, D-12 for parents, etc.)

  • see the lord of that amsha sign within the radix. This is the part of YOU -- the seed of the projection -- that is creating the reality seen in the amsha.

  • If this planet is doing well in radix, expect a smooth ride in the matter at hand.

  • If this planet is troubled, the amazingly good news is that YOU CAN FIX IT. All skandha, the accumulated heaps of past karma, can be improved through CONSCIOUS attention.

  • Under supervision of a therapist, psychic counselor, guru, meditation instructor - or just by personal self-discipline and commitment to remain"awake" to the action-reaction patterns dominating our lives - these compulsive patterns can be released and replaced with positive energy.

the key, as any Buddhist will confirm, is to PAY ATTENTION to the reactive pattern.

In practice this method applies to any varga. However, perform this study on the navamsha FIRST, for all questions. Navamsha reveals the underlying dharma, or reality, of the situation. After examining the neutral facts of the dharma or"phenomena as-it-is ", then proceed to the individual vargas and do the radix-to-varga-to-radix method there.

From: the writings of the eminent Jyotishi, Rohini Ranjan :

"VARGA-CLASSIFICATION

Vargas are grouped in sets of six, seven, ten or sixteen.

These are known as Shad, Sapt, Dasha orShodasha-vargas .

SHAD (SIX)

  • Rashi,

  • hora,

  • dreshkana,

  • navamsha,

  • dwadazamamza-10 and

  • Trishamsha.

If planet is in 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 good vargas (exaltation, moolatrikona, own, friendly signs,

or a sign that is owned by a planet ruling an angle (1,4,7,10) from the arudha,

then it is called kimshuka, vyanjana, chaamara, chatra, kundala.

SAPTA (SEVEN)

Add saptamamsha to the above six.

Planets in good vargas in 2 to 6 vargas are called the same as above.

If in good vargas in all seven, it is called Mukuta.

DASHA (TEN)

To the above seven, add

  • shodazamamza-10 (khalamsha),

  • dazamamza-10 and

  • shastiamsha.

Planets in good vargas in this classification are from 2 to 10 vargas:

Parijaat, uttam, gopur, simhasan, parvat, devlok, brahmalok, shakravahan, shridham.

SHODASHA (SIXTEEN)

To the above ten, add

  • chaturthamsha,

  • vimshamsha,

  • chaturvimshamsha,

  • bhamsha,

  • khavedamsha and

  • Akshavedamsha.

  • Planets in 2 to 16 good vargas: (according to BPHS)

    • Bhedaka, kusuma, naga pushpa, kanduka, kerala,
    • Kalpavriksha, chandanvana, poornachandra,
    • uchcheshrava, dhanvantari, suryakaanta,
    • vidruma, shakra simhasana, gauloka
    • and shrivallabha."

Q:Namaskar.

I was wishing to understand the difference of Divisional Charts of D-5 and D-7.

  • 5th house in a birth Chart denotes, Fame, Children, Creativity, Love, Romance. The 5th house is again sub divided into D-5 and D-7.

  • For Love do we need to consult the D-5 or D-7? Since both are sub-divisions of Fifth house?

  • Where to look for Radix vidyapathi-5 in sub-chart for success in love and romance?

Do the Divisional charts give such results also? Kindly tell.

A: Great questions! Many Jyotisha beginners struggle with the correct interpretation of varga charts. When I began my studies years ago, I found the matter of interpreting the varga to be a great conundrum. However they do make sense upon reflection.

What follows is my viewpoint. You will find other viewpoints from other Jyotishi, so please do keep an open mind.


D-5, D-7, and D-9 in relationships

Building a knowledge base

  • As with all Jyotisha practice, looking at a variety of charts is the best path to understanding of varga significance.

    Avoid fixating On one or two emotionally charged nativities.

  • As with all Jyotisha practice, looking at a variety of charts is the best path to understanding of varga significance.There is too much anxiety associated with the nativities of persons regarding whom one has powerful expectations . Rather, study a variety of nativities of persons well-known to you such as parents and grandparents, siblings and cousins, co-workers and neighbors, in order to establish a neutral and data-driven knowledge base.

  • Since the vidya engages both lunar intuition and solar reasoning, Jyotisha is not exactly empirical science. Yet it is important to see a wide variety of Jyotisha nativities in order to validate the teachings of the classics. Otherwise, unfortunately, the whole enterprise falls into conflict and superstition.

  • Read lots of charts! Even a beginner offer a brief, positive reading.


Regarding D-5, D-7, and D-9:

D-5 Panchamsha

  • D-5 Panchamsha is not too much used, except for answering questions from those seeking Fame, Celebrity, Applause, or other ego-flattering effects of natural 5th house = individual creativity. These questions usually come from actors, politicians, and those in the entertainment or amusement industries.

  • For Romance or Idealization(which is what I think you mean by 'love') of Self and Other, look to the D-5.

  • D-5 provides an accurate psychological view of idealized, poetic love, including the love of children. It is nearly impossible to see the negative attributes of one's own beloved children, unless one suffers a projecting personality disorder!

  • D-5 shows fine-tuning of one's ability to channel true genius.

  • Everyone has "genius " which is the purest expression of divine intelligence channeling through one's unique character. But not everyone has permission to express that genius. The D-5 will give a closer view of the Surya-driven "Self-expression". D-5 at maximum can confirm brilliant creative genius, but always rational-ego-driven.

  • In the Idealization mechanism, one develops a temporary charisma which causes the "falling in love" vis--vis the Other or vis--vis the Public. The idiom refers to "falling" because romantic idealization is indeed falling out of normal balance.

  • D-5 gives a clear view of the idealization-divinization mechanism in the life of the native .

  • If radix L-5, radix lagnesha, the arudha lagna, and the lord of the Lagna of D-5 all point in essentially the same direction --

  • or if the Jyotishi looks across the full range of 16 vargas and sees perhaps Shukra or the auspicious radix vidyapathi-5 in all or most of the varga lagnas --

  • then of course the native is set up for a lifetime of charismatic fame.

One will"fall in love"and"be fallen in love with" frequency and with intensity, when the Idealization (Surya) mechanism is strongly empowered.


D-7 Saptamsha

  • Procreativity or the production of children is typically read through the D-7. What is the logic of using the D-7 saptamsha rather than the D-5 for children? It is that children are not the product of individual's creativity as much as they are the"fruit" or achievement of the physical union of marriage.

  • Production of children, although indeed a function of divine intelligence channeling through the bodies of the parents, is not considered to be primarily the result of individual self-expression (Surya). Rather, a child is typically the fruit of two people joined in sensual union (Shukra).

  • In the radix, bhava-5 = 11th-from-yuvati = fruits of marriage.In terms of physical creativity ("procreativity") matters of bhava-5 constitute the material outcome Of bhava-7.

  • "Barren" graha (Budha, Shani, Surya) which have other strengths (Exempli gratia,, in lagna, with Chandra, in lagnesha) when prominent in D-7 will indicate successful gain of children through adoption.

  • In reality, the desire to produce children for self-justification - rather than as a service to the divine -- can have a significant ego-membrane motivation. Nevertheless, the conception will originate in some type of contract or alliance, whether moral or sensual, whether simple or complicated (as some adoptions are quite complex and multi-party).

  • In the case of strong ego-motivation for acquiring/producing a child, Surya the Self will be in D-7 lagna or similar rationalizing configuration.

  • Therefore always consult D-7 for children, regardless of complexities in the child's situation.
  • Children are considered a function of the marriage contract, at the physical, social, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. But children are not a purely spiritual undertaking - they have a solid physical dimension! - so children are not seen as clearly through the D-9. For children, the D-7 is quite reliable.

  • In addition to predicting children, D-7 may show more details about contracts, agreements, negotiations, commercial transactions, legal advice, counseling, pursuit of shared sensual experience (Zukra) and other social balancing and design functions within a marriage or other partnership.

  • At the human level, D-7 describes exchanges, trades, agreements, and alliances for mutual benefit.

D-7 is a useful varga to consult for professional practice in the contract-making and alliance-building professions, such as commerce and law; also interpersonal counseling and all forms of professional advising including int'l diplomacy and peace-making roles.


D-9 Navamsha

For the true, non-rationalizing and non-idealizing, wise and inclusive, divinely guided love of sacred *marriage*, ruled by Brihaspati (not Surya's D-5 and not Shukra's D-7!) look to the D-9. The essential"complete and all-inclusive" mirroring function of established marriage relationships is reflected in the D-9.

  • Why D-9 and not D-7?

  • The D-9 shows fine-tuning for All relationships sealed with a sacred vow , including vows of Holy Orders (monastic vows of poverty, chastity, etc.) and promises made to Sacred Spirits.

  • 9th-from-lagna represents one's ability to Hold onto Heaven, or to connect with the divine aspect of the human self. Dharma bhava is the house of priesthood, of making and keeping the connection with Divine Truth. The life partner provides a mirror image of that connection.

If the graha are favorable, The life partnership becomes the most vital and demanding spiritual practice of the entire incarnation.

Q:My friend has a difficult chart with lord of Vrishabha lagna in eighth house. Also he has a nishturabhashi yoga in D-9.

One astrologer gave my friend a remedy for eighth house, Laxmi mantra for correcting Sukra in eighth house.

But I think it is more important for him to do a remedy for that difficult yoga in D-9.

What is the best approach?

A: all significations of Jyotisha nativity must be read first and foremost from the D-1.

If the nisturabhashi yoga exists in D-1 then it is important.

If the yoga exists only in D-9 it is not a material effect; it is only something in the psychic background. D-9 evidence can only confirm what is seen in D-1.

All varga except the D-1 are secondary and confirming. The D-1 is always the primary predictor of social-material outcomes.

D-9 shows astral background. D-9 is more subtle and not a direct producer of material outcomes. D-9 shows our subconscious beliefs about reality which we are not expecting to enact for ourselves. We need other people to dramatize these beliefs for us, in order to push the subtle D-9 expectations into consciousness.

The D-9 is a good predictor for marriage and career because the spouse and the boss are highly empowered"Other People" who enact our beliefs, so that we can see those subtle beliefs in a clear mirror. Although it often seems like they are not doing what we want them to do, in fact they are doing exactly what we * expect* them to do!

D-9 shows what the native has programmed other people to do. Look into D-1 to see what the native has programmed himself to do. Typically we cannot change other people's actions. However we can change our own programming by changing our intention.

Therefore, focus the remedy upon the D-1 configuration.


Remedy: Best remedy is always seva. No gem, no mantra, no money donation can equal the power of seva.

If the lord of lagna occupies bhava-8, he should do seva of helping people cope with sudden unexpected changes, disaster (natural financial social marital medical etc.) or emergency or sudden eruption of unexpected force such as attack.

If he can help others with their fears and trauma, then he can learn the truth of his own healing powers.

Lord of lagna in 8 indicates a healer. It is a supportive placement when properly understood and properly deployed. But they must learn to use their powers to help when needed and not to meddle uninvited or unnecessarily mystify things.

So your friend should say the Laxmi mantra if he enjoys that nice sound, but then he should do something practical and offer seva to people who have been shocked. When he learns more about shock (shakti) he will be a better healer.

wishing you every happiness and success in Jyotisha studies,

Sincerely, BPL
