Pushkara Navamsha

Portions of Fortune

Pushya-karaka -- Pushkara-raja-karaka

see the Tables of Pushkara Portions lower on this page


18 Particularly Auspicious "ninth portions "

How to Match:
  • Solar divisions = rashi
  • Lunar division = nakshatra

The circle of the zodiac = 360 degrees

360 = divided into 12 Rashi

  • one rashi = 30 degrees

  • each 30 degree rashi = nine equal portions

  • 'nava' = 'nine'; 'portion' = 'amsha '

  • One-ninth of a rashi = nav-amsha = the space of an 'arc' = 3 degrees 20 minutes

  • 9 * [3 degrees 20 minutes] = 30 degrees

  • 9 portions * 12 rashi = 108 portions

There are 27 Nakshatra

  • each nakshatra = 4 pada = 4 steps (ped = feet) = 4 quarters

  • each nakshatra quarter = nakshatra pada = 3 degrees 20 minutes

  • each nakshatra = [3 degrees 20 minutes] * 4 pada = 13 degrees 20 minutes

  • 27 nakshatra * 13 degrees 20 minutes = 27 * 13.33 inf = 360 degrees = 1 circle

  • 4 portions * 27 nakshatra = 108 portions

One-ninth of a rashi = One-fourth of a nakshatra


Pushyakaraka Portions

  • 24 of the total 108 Nakshatra-quarters are considered Pushyakaraka highly benevolent.

  • 24 of the total 108 rashi-ninths are considered Pushyakaraka highly benevolent.

  • Each rashi contains two Pushyakaraka Navamsha = ruled by Chandra, Zukra, uttama-Budha, and Brihaspati.

  • of the 24 Pushyakaraka Navamsha, 3 are further strengthened via Vargottamsha

  • Each Rashi contains a specific degree of Pushyakaraka Bhaga which is maximally auspicious.


  • 1st and 3rd navamsha of water sign = jala rashi

  • 3rd and 5th navamsha of earth sign = privthi rashi

  • 6th and 8th navamsha of air sign = vayu rashi

  • 7th and 9th navamsha of fire sign = tejas rashi

What can be predicted?

The karaka must be strong at birth.

  • Then, as a general rule, karaka graha will become strong during their Vimshottari Dasha period.

  • Then, if in addition to enjoying a reign as time-lord in the Vimshottari Dasha the gochara karaka graha is also traveling (transiting) through a Pushyakaraka Navamsha -- and especially across a Pushyakaraka Bhagya degree, very strong karaka results may be expected.

For example,

Guru = karaka = Children

  • When Guru is reasonably strong in the nativity, periods of Guru may provide the blessings of children by many methods (live birth, adoption, acquisition via marriage, inheritance, etc).

Mangala = karaka = conquering and winning contests

When Angarika is reasonably strong in the nativity, periods of Mangala are known to provide competitive success against even the best qualified contenders.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points George W. Bush won the USA presidential election (via electoral college) on 5-Nov-2000.

  • Furthermore, when the election results were challenged due to an extremely close count, obvious irregularities in the Florida voting culture, and the wide opportunity for fraud in a state where his brother was the reigning governor -- despite these obstacles, GW Bush nevertheless prevailed .

  • Karkata-lagna for Mr. Bush provides a Yogakaraka L-5+karmesha-10 Mangala. 5 = politics; 10 = government leadership.

  • Mangala = naturally strong in the kundali, in friendly Simha and in bhava-2 for family history which indicates his financially privileged, powerful, athletic family.

  • On the day of the election, Mangala was transiting the Guru-ruled (Meena section) Pushyakaraka Navamsha = Kanya - 6 deg40' until 10 deg00'
