|BPL Commentary|| |
Parivartamsha yoga increases the power of the two bhava involved.
It will also increase the power of the two graha involved.
Increasing the power of these two bhava and these two graha may be helpful for the success of the nativity. If the bhava or the graha are inauspicious, the parivartamsha yoga may increase the negativity of results.
If the graha involved are natural or temporal pleasure-giver subhagraha,
then expect increase of ease and comfort in matters for which these graha are karaka = action-agents. For temporal pleasure-giver subhagraha, effects of the exchanged two bhava are also smooth and relaxed.
If the exchanged graha are are natural or temporal papagraha; results may be emphatically more difficult than the graha might separately produce.
Parivartamsha with Mangala generally produces a greater degree of vitality and more drive to win contests. Does not make the competitions easier and but may engage added skills from the other graha. Adds to the alpha, dominating energies needed to pursue a goal, and may be either helpful or exacerbating for those in controversial or conflicted situations depending on the other graha.
Parivartamsha with Shani generally produces a greater workload and more stamina to support the work. Does not make the work easier and does not provide additional resources. Simply increases the amount of effort needed to finish the work.
|When Malefic graha = pleasure-giver subhagraha bhava-pati|| |
If one or both of the graha are natural papagraha that rule sukha-bhava (Exempli gratia, Yogakaraka Shani for Vrishabha or Thula lagna ) then results will be much increased in the style of that lagna.
When Shani enters into a parivartamsha with another graha, Shani can add the empowerments of the exchange rashi to His birth-rashi empowerments. This means that He will become a "double-Shani" - doubly slow, doubly delay-causing, doubly persistent, and doubly-hard-working. Results of His efforts may be excellent, but the results are likely to take even longer, and require even more discipline, than if Shani did not enjoy the parivartamsha yoga!
Results depend entirely on the characteristics of the Graha which are exchanging their rashi.
While not a maha-parivartamsha yoga, the nativity of Esoteric Astrology 1925-2005 Bepin Behari features a professionally strengthening exchange between uttama Shani-7 and Makara-Zukra-10 which carried his career (10)into international diplomatic (7) settings.
Three varieties of parivartamsha yoga: challenging, smooth, and great.
According to K.S. Charak (p 637)
If one of the Graha within the parivartamsha yoga rules a dusthamsha (bhava 6, 8, or 12),
then the exchanged graha gets pulled into the script of a dusthamsha, which means, according to the partner-graha, either imbalance and servitude (6) or sudden identity changes (8) or social invisibility (12).
However, the dusthamsha ruler may gain dignity of purpose via its interaction with the other non-dusthamsha partner.

For Mao, the 5-8 parivartamsha strengthens matters of bhava-8 terror, trauma, sudden unexpected changes, revolution, poison AND political celebrity. Mao became an agent of massively destructive revolutionary upheaval while enjoying uninterrupted political success for many decades. His fans consider Mao as an exponent of social justice uttama-Shani while his detractors focus more on his aesthetic (Zukra) of utter devastation of the old order (Makara) and violently enforced, catastrophic social change. Whatever his legacy, in his era Mao's image was ubiquitous and his every word was enormously celebrated (5 center stage).

Parivartamsha of the 12th ruler facilitates his ongoing invisible, "under the table" deals which obtained agreement in clandestine fashion that might never have been achieved via more public boasting discourse. In particular Madison conducted invisible negotiations with the British Army (Mangala-12)
Madison also famously ruined the fortunes of hundreds of greedy land speculators whose schemes were dissolved when Madison facilitated having the lands (4) of Virginia, which extended to the Mississippi River at the time, given to the Continental Congress thus making the federal government the only legal land grantor.
vyayapathi-12 ++ vidyapathi-5
Dainya parivartamsha strengthens the ability to combine politics entertainment and divine creativity (5) with invisible, cloistered, sanctuary operations and with long periods of seclusion or interaction with guides from distant worlds (12)
vyayapathi-12 ++ yuvatipathi-7
Dainya parivartamsha strengthens the ability to combine contractual relationships such as employment contracts, teaching contracts, and commercial contracts plus work as a middleman or negotiator (7) with invisible, cloistered, sanctuary operations and with long periods of seclusion or interaction with guides from distant worlds often engaged in research(12)
vyayapathi-12 ++ dharmapathi-9
Parivartamsha strengthens matters of invisible arrangements, under-the-table deals, imagination, distant worlds, prayerful meditations (12) along with international inclusionism and global humanism (9). Often a mystic, reclusive guru, or priest.
vyayapathi-12 ++ karmesha-10
Parivartamsha strengthens matters of invisible arrangements, under-the-table deals, imagination, bedroom activities (12) along with extraordinary profits wrought by marketplace actions (11)
If one of the exchange partners is the ruler of bhava-3 , kahala yoga applies.
Nearly always these nativities are distinguished by their ability in all provinces of Budha, including writing, reporting, chronicling, announcing, explaining, describing, diagramming, drawing, painting, gesturing, signaling, teaching, skills training, and skilled handcraft.
Note: The non-bhratrupathi-3 partner cannot be also a dusthamsha ruler. (If the non-bhratrupathi-3 partner would be a dusthamsha lord, the yoga would be Dainya, above.)
The non-bhratrupathi-3 partner = lord of 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, or 11.
The bhratrupathi-3 partner infuses the parivartamsha with courage, competitiveness, communicative enthusiasm, and all of the signaling, messaging powers of bhava-3.
This yoga is considered beneficial with some limits.
The limits on benefits is that bhratrupathi-3 gives mentalization, which can be superficial and repetitive as well as distracting from wisdom.
Kahala yoga will energize the talking, writing, publishing announcing, scheming, competing mind to go out and get stuff done.
sahajapathi-3 ++ lagnesha-1
This yoga supports an outstanding personality (1) with special engagement in writing, publishing, announcements, evangelism, commercial business, message-media, information delivery (3)
sahajapathi-3 ++ dhanesha-treasurer-2
Generally, increased empowerment for mixing of resources and the face-eyes (2) with commercial business, publications, media-messaging (3). Ruler of 2 exchanges with ruler of 2nd-from-2nd, providing a supportive family that invests their assets (2) into the native. Typically creative and articulate, with a valuable face.
sahajapathi-3 ++ bandesha-4
sahajapathi-3 ++ vidyapathi-5
Extremely strong support for politically, theatrically, or intellectually influential writings, announcements, publications. May also treat topics of entertainment, celebrity, royalty, speculation, gaming, fashion, drama, literature, or performance arts.
sahajapathi-3 ++ yuvatipathi-7
sahajapathi-3 ++ randhresha-8
sahajapathi-3 ++ dharmesha-9
sahajapathi-3 ++ karmesha-10
This yoga supports a writer that obtains an exceptionally high level of social reputation for both the texts and the native's leadership ability.
Maha Parivartamsha Yoga|
K.S. Charak (p 630) says,
When the rulers of 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, or 11 get exchange of signs, Maha-Parivartamsha Yoga results.
dharmesha-9 ++ 10 or 11
Maha-Parivartamsha of Dharmapathi exchanges with the Karmapathi or the Labhapathi.
karmesha-10 ++ vriddhipathi-11
Maha-Parivartamsha Karmapathi exchanges with Labhapathi.
Presuming strength of both rulers involved in the exchange, this parivartamsha yoga may be expected to produce treasures and pleasures while matters of the two swapped bhava are enhanced.
Specifically, public respect and recognition are enhanced by economic gainfulness, and vice versa.
1-lagnesha ++ 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, or 11
Maha-Parivartamsha Yoga of lagnesha exchanges with dhanesha-treasurer or bandhesha or vidyapathi or yuvatipathi or dharmapathi or Karmapathi or the Labhapathi.
Presuming strength of both rulers involved in the exchange, this parivartamsha yoga may be expected to produce treasures and pleasures while matters of the two swapped bhava are enhanced.
Specifically, the social-attribute identity and vitality is enhanced by the characteristics of the exchange bhava.

Special Raja Yoga considerations when lagnesha exchanges with karmapathi:
lagnesha 1 with karmesha 10 * supports an outstanding personality (1) with special engagement in hierarchy, social institutions, bureaucracy, laws, policies, legal structures, rule of law, social authority (10)
dhanesha-treasurer-2 ++ ruler of 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, or 11
Maha-Parivartamsha of the dhanesha-treasurer exchange with bandhesha or vidyapathi or yuvatipathi or dharmapathi or Karmapathi or the Labhapathi.
Specifically, matters of historical conservation, savings, and containment of treasuries of wealth-and-knowledge are enhanced.
dhanesha-treasurer-2 ++ bandhupathi-4
dhanesha-treasurer-2 ++ vidyapathi-5
For Streisand, the 2-5 parivartamsha coordinates with an additional parivartamsha in her nativity (Kuja-6 exchange Budha-3) to produce a mechanism of nearly constant activity. Her various constantly-interacting skills include writing and musical composing (Budha) singing and speaking (Zukra) and an eccentric but deeply fortunate ability in performance arts Zukra-yuti-Ketu with Zukra-parivartamsha-Shani-5 lagnesha. She has been politically active (5) as a fundraiser for liberal causes for decades, and was probably not able to enter elected politics for the positive reason that her artistic skills were of such magnitude that politics would provide an insufficient scope of artistic expression. Shani-5 sometimes dislikes celebrity entitlements, but her Shani is much tempered via Guru-yuti-Shani and she appears to enjoy life.
dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 ++ yuvatipati-7
A somewhat awkward shad-ashtaka 6/8 angle exchange between the agenda of one's own family (2) and the agenda of one's marriage-or-business partner (7). The family and the partner may gain from this arrangement, but the native may feel unbalanced.
dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 ++ dharmapathi-9
A somewhat awkward 6/8 shad-ashtakya exchange between the agenda of one's own family (2) and the agenda of the doctrinal, ideological authorities or the agenda of one's father (9). The family and the father-or-sangha-or-indoctrinators may gain from this arrangement, but the native may feel unbalanced.
dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 ++ karmapathi-10
dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 ++ vriddhipathi-11 * most effective dhana-yoga
bandhesha-4 ++ ruler of 5, 7, 9, 10, or 11
Maha-Parivartamsha Yoga of bandhesha exchange with the vidyapathi or yuvatipathi or dharmapathi or Karmapathi or the Labhapathi
Specifically, matters of property ownership and the mother's culture are enhanced.
bandhupathi-4 ++ vidyapathi-5
bandhupathi-4 ++ dharmapathi-9
A somewhat awkward 6/8 shad-ashtakya exchange between the agenda of one's mother, home-folk, and cultural foundations including schooling, housing, and property ownership (4) and the agenda of the doctrinal, ideological authorities or the agenda of one's father. (9) The family and the father-or-sangha-or-indoctrinators may gain from this arrangement, but the native may feel unbalanced. Often the parents are misaligned constitutionally but they are nevertheless able to work together.
bandhupathi-4 ++ karmesha-10
vidyapathi-5 ++ ruler of 7, 9, 10, or 11
Maha-Parivartamsha of vidyapathi-5 exchange with yuvatipathi-7 or dharmapathi-9 or Karmapathi-10 or the Labhapathi-11.
Specifically, matters of celebrity, politics, children, creative arts and literature, gamesmanship and winnings from speculation are enhanced.
vidyapathi-5 ++ yuvatipathi-7
vidyapathi-5 ++ karmesha-10 ** see below
vidyapathi-5 ++ dharmapathi-9 * superb advantage * if the exchange partners a graha with Shani, there may be a very heavy workload but nevertheless one serves as a bright light engaging the paradigm of belief. If Shani is not involved, very fortunate for creative arts and literature, politics, and drama.
vidyapathi-5 ++ karmapathi-10
An extraordinary advantage for political careers but imbalanced and contentious too
A somewhat awkward shad-ashtaka 6/8 exchange between the agenda of one's own family (2) and the agenda of the doctrinal, ideological authorities or the agenda of one's father (9). The family and the father-or-sangha-or-indoctrinators may gain from this arrangement, but the native may feel unbalanced. It is nevertheless a combination for political power, kingship, and fame.
vidyapathi-5 ++ vriddhipathi-11
The mutual exchange plus parivartamsha yoga creates a substantial dhanayoga signifies a dramatic (5) increase (11) in economic participation (11) along with earnings from fashion, entertainment, celebrity, games, and other creative endeavors.
yuvatipathi-7 ++ ruler of 9, 10, 11
yuvatipathi-7 ++ dharmesha-9
yuvatipathi-7 ++ karmesha-10
double parivartamsha - exchange rulers of 5-6 and rulers of 7-10
dharmapathi-9 ++ ruler of 7, 10, or 11
9 exchange with 7
9 exchange with 10
exchange rulers of 9 and 10 brings qualities of philosophy and paradigms of belief (9) into the public reputation (10). Also Brihaspati ruler of 11 is located in 11th-from-11th = a highly productive funding yoga.
9 exchange with 11
Ruler of networks-11 located in 11th-from-11th beliefs-9. A parivartamsha yoga between the rulers of 9 and 11 generates a prognosis for high levels of economic earnings and marketplace theories along with intense engagement with ideological doctrine (9) interacting with social participation communities (11).
Karmesha-10 exchange with vriddhipathi-11
exchange rulers of 10 and 11 brings qualities of leadership and executive authority (10) into the realm of marketplace profits (11). If the two exchanging graha are mutually friendly and empowered, expect elite governance regulatory roles mixed with superb economic profits
An important difference:
Parivartamsha vs. Mutual-Aspect.
The Yoga of Pari-varta-amsha = "re-vers-al of amounts ".
Parivartamsha yoga strengthens both planets even if they are both papagraha. This condition does possibly increasing their challenging capacity, but always dignifying both.
Mutual Aspect by contrast does not normally dignify the two planets. Any two planets in opposition, 180 degrees apart, will provide mutual aspect to each other. If those two planets are friendly, the mutual aspect is a good thing, but then they will need to both rule favorable houses and occupy good signs in order to really help each other.
A Parivartamsha yoga of Shani and Kuja , no matter how much it might repress the animal vitality ,
|parivartamsha yoga involving Zukra|| parivartamsha yoga
involving Zukra generally enhances the function of Zukra-karaka personages
such as feminine-partner, sister, aunt, musicians and fine-artists,
designers, arrangers, attorneys, bankers, collectors, and historians

QUOTATION from |
Jyotishi 1912-1998B. V. Raman : A Catechism of Astrology , 4th Ed., p. 28.
When Saturn falls in Mars' Sapta Vargas, and Mars in Saturn's Sapta Vargas, do they become strong?"
You cannot lay down any hard and fast rules in judging the strength or otherwise of planets when there is an exchange of vargas between two natural malefics.
As to whether such strength expresses itself in good or bad respects depends on the horoscopic disposition of Saturn, though by virtue of Saturn's inherent malefic nature, a measure of evil is bound to predominate."
During my current mahadasha, Budha occupies 12th from the mahadasha-pati Mangala,
and it looks as if a pattern of retreat (12th) from the main business of the mahadasha (Kuja Yogakaraka 4-9 and I am in the education industry) will cause a loss of energy for professional development.
Even though Budha normally produces an upswing in my mental activities, it looks as if that mentalistic period of Budha will produce mainly interior thought and not too much result on the professionally visible level.
But Budha enjoys (as you say) a parivartamsha with Guru, and Guru occupies the 10th from Mangala. That means "virtual" Budha should display some effects in that place, the 10th from Mangala.
That means (I think) the obscurity and interiority of the Mangala-Budha 2-12 angle that normally would reduce the visibility of Budha won't be serious or maybe won't even happen due to the parivartamsha with Budha.
Am I thinking correctly here? Can the "virtual" position acquired through parivartamsha cause Budha who is normally in a poor placement 12th from the mahadasha-pati to obtain a 10th effect?
The bhukti of a graha which is engaged in parivartamsha yoga with another graha gives two different but simultaneous sets of results.
The first set of results = what we would expect normally:
Then, to complicate matters, there is usually a second set of results measured from the 'virtual' position acquired via the parivartamsha.
The second set of results may strongly evoke the 2 bhava ruled by the parivartamsha partner.
Clearly a parivartamsha yoga can mitigate some of the worst effects of a difficult bhukti . However a parivartamsha is probably not a strong enough mitigant to reverse an entire unfortunate mahadasha.
As soon as the subsequent Ketu period started, the protective effect of Chandra-Budha parivartamsha dissolved, and he left office in a state of surrender, with the worst approval ratings of any president in US history. He didn't re-emerge into public life for years after that.

Q: Hi Barbara, I am trying to learn bits and pieces of astrology and have been going through your website which is very resourceful. I have a question on parivartamsha yoga.
In a known chart, from the lagna house there is parivartamsha between 2nd house and 10th house ....
However if you look at it from Moon it is between 1st house and 9th house. Do I take it as parivartamsha only between houses 2 and 10? i.e should parivatana be considered only from Lagna? Thanks, B
Do I take it as parivartamsha only between houses 2 and 10? i.e should parivatana be considered only from Lagna? Thanks, B
A: great question!
Just about everything in a Jyotisha nativity needs to be examined from both the Chandra lagna AND the radix lagna. for unknown birth times, the Chandra lagna alone can be used, but this view alone is not nearly as detailed.
Since normal human life is governed by a combination of 5-senses material perception and 70+ senses of more subtle psycho-emotional perception (including thoughts) it is really beneficial to go through the material implications first, then read AGAIN for the emotional implications.
For example, in marriage, there is a social, legal, and property relationship between the spouses which is best read from the radix lagna and navamsha lagna swamsha.
But there is also an emotional interaction, which is very definitive of the marriage experience, and that level of reality can only be revealed by angles from Chandra.
The short answer is, examine the parivartamsha yoga from both perspectives. Start with the material reading since that is simpler. Then consider the psycho-emotional perception.
This multiple-assessment method potentially involves relationships between as many as eight separate bhava. That is much evaluation data to keep in mind at once!
But humans have complex perceptions , and a yoga which benefits a person materially can harm one emotionally, or vice versa. Also remember that the parivartamsha effects are likely to manifest mainly during the Vimshottari periods of the exchanged graha.
For predicting the effect of a parivartamsha graha during its Vimshottari Dasha period, consider
Best wishes for your success in Jyotisha studies,

India-PM 1917-1984 Indira Gandhi: Triple Parivartamsha gives extraordinary results
India-PM 1966-1977; 1980-84 Indira Gandhi = remarkable ** Triple Parivartamsha Yoga involving Lagnesha Chandra
The basic kundali reveals a strong and disciplined personality.
But there is much more to her story!
Mrs. Gandhi triple parivartamsha nativity exchanges 1-with-7, 2-with-5, 6-with-11
Due to the exchange impact of the Parashari drishti, her Shani, Kuja, and Guru will each cast drishti to six bhava, in effect doubling their normal three-glances each.
Rahu-6 amplifies not only the normal 10-12-2 but also due Zukra-6-parivartamsha-Guru-11 , Professor Rahu in effect amplifies BOTH Guru AND Zukra.
triple parivartamsha nativities are rather complex and require much reflection to sort out the two sets of effects. It may be helpful to construct a second nativity which visually shows the exchanged graha in their "virtual" places.
Creating a parivartamsha visual map will reveal a second narrative which underlies the primary ego-membrane social narrative and may provide clues to otherwise mysterious events or behaviors of the native .
Q: Namaste Barbaraji, Hope you are doing great. I was reading about parivarthamsha yoga on your website. Its a fascinating subject to study and research. Does this yoga also apply when planets exchange Nakshatra instead of signs? For eg. sun in rohini and moon in krittika. Keep writing on your site. Great stuff!! Thanks.

Great question! The answer, so far as I know, is that parivartamsha * parivartana * parina yoga applies only to sign-exchange between rashi rulers.
Thanks for your compliments on the website. I'm delighted to know that the sample materials available here are helping Jyotisha students to learn more of the vidya.

Q: Hi Barbara, Happy New Year. A quick question, is parivartana yoga possible between 3 planets?
I am thinking of this group of three:
| A: Namaste, |
Thanks for the example. OK, I see what you are thinking: that if Shani occupies a rashi of Mangala while Mangala occupies a rashi of Guru and Guru occupies a rashi of Shani, that there could be some sort of three-way triangulation.
However, Jyotisha principles state that a parivartamsha energy-exchange must be a direct exchange between two graha which are the rulers of two rashi.
Parivartamsha applies to the rashi-ruling status only Parivartamsha does not apply to any purported exchange between nakshatra rulers, nor any exchange between rulers of any other amsha portion, but only exchange between rulers of rashi * razi * race.
"Razi' = the portion that is cut-off, a 'heap' or 'stack' or 'slab'. In English: rasher, razor, race: the cut-off portion, the defined portion.
Only a pair of graha can do pari-vart-amsha. (the IE root 'vart-vert' = turn about, as in English 'invert' or 'convert')
In this scenario, none of the three graha are enjoying parivartamsha.
Wishing you every happiness and success in your study of the samayavidya,
