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.

  • Exempli gratia, Shani is Yogakaraka for Thula lagna, but this fact does not make Shani an "easy results " graha! Thula natives have such a favorable prognosis for both cultural education (4) and individual intelligence (5) because Shani provides the lifetime discipline to shape, polish, and perfect the process.

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.

  • Yentl 1942- drama-song-activist Barbra Streisand maintained a highly regular presence in the American musical industry, selling out stadiums while losing no luster of performance for six decades. Her nativity enjoys an exceptionally strong parivartamsha yoga between lagnesha randhresha Zukra-Kumbha in bhava-5 entertainment exchanged with yogakaraka ruler-of-4-5 Vrishabha Shani in bhava-8 (yuti Guru) granting many iterations of self-renewal.

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.

Dainya Parivartamsha Yoga

According to K.S. Charak (p 637)

  • "This combination leads to a wicked nature, persistent trouble from opponents, and ill health."

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.

Maintaining linkage between the ongoing state of war (6) and the imposition of a class hierarchy upon the land (4). Taylor was a lifetime military officer. Parivartamsha strengthens matters of bhava-6 war, crime, mistreatment and matters of resistance (Shani) in the place of settlement.

Zachary Taylor was an "Indian Fighter" who helped to push Native Americans out of their historic hunter-gatherer lands so that agriculturalist European settlers could move in, build fences, and start farming. And also impose their class system (Shani) which marginalized Native Americans into an underclass. Taylor and his family lived rent-free in military border stockades (4) for most of his adult life, and by the end of his career he had either killed most of his adversaries, caused them to die of sickness, or tricked them (Rahu-yuti-Guru-6) into leaving the area.

Although Zukra-6 contributed to Van Buren's alcoholism and corruption overall, his lifelong political career (5) as a supposedly abolitionist Northerner was enhanced by Van Buren's tolerance (Zukra) for slavery and mistreatment of native peoples (6) which allowed him to maintain many political relationships.

randhresha-8 ++ lagnesha-1

randhresha-8 ++ dhanesha-treasurer-2

randhresha-8 ++ vidyapathi-5

For Streisand, the 5-8 parivartamsha coordinates with an additional parivartamsha in her nativity (Kuja-9 exchange Budha-7) to produce a mechanism of nearly constant (Shani) self-renewal (8) via her various skills of writing and musical composing (Budha) contract-making (Mangala rules-7) and an eccentric but deeply fortunate ability in performance arts (Zukra-yuti-Ketu 5) She has been politically active 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-8 sometimes has a capacity for cruelty, but her Shani is much tempered via Guru-yuti-Shani.

  • China-Dictator 1893-1976 Mao Zedong Zukra-Makara-8 exchanges with uttama-Shani-5

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.

Kahala Parivartamsha Yoga

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 writing, reporting, chronicling, announcing, explaining, describing, diagramming, drawing, painting, gesturing, signaling, teaching, skills training, or handcraft (all provinces of Budha)

Note: The non-bhratrupathi-3 partner cannot be also a dusthamsha lord. (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.

In addition to philosophical subjects, Descartes was a noted military strategist and designer of weaponry, exhibiting abilities in the more pragmatic skills of diagramming and planning (Meza-Budha-3) as well as conceptual thought.

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.

  • The mutual aspect of Saturn and Mars which can occur when those two Graha occupy at 180 deg or 90/270 deg (4/10) angle to each other, is nearly always a disaster, causing intensely repressed anger which consumes most of the person's life force, eventually blocking the very accomplishments this person works so hard for.

A Parivartamsha yoga of Shani and Kuja , no matter how much it might repress the animal vitality ,

  • will give full discipline from Shani

  • and full productivity from Mangala .

  • the native will definitely accomplish something in life despite a personal propensity to take the longer, harder road toward nearly every goal.

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 inter alia

Strongest benefits accrue when Zukra exchanges rashi with one of the great friends of Zukra who are Shani and Budha.

Zukra in parivartamsha with Surya, Chandra may yield less straightforward benefits.

Zukra-parivartamsha-Shani indicates a steady, harmonizing feminine-figure

Observers agree that Pat formed the advising, counseling (Zukra) backbone (Shani) of Nixon's lifelong political career AND of his personal life (Shani lagnesha).

Jyotishi 1912-1998 B. V. Raman : A Catechism of Astrology , 4th Ed., p. 28.

"Qu. 34:

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.

  • If it is a case of Parivarthana Yoga (interchange of places), this considerably strengthens it.

  • In cases other than a parivarthana, due weight must be given to their lordship and similar factors.

  • When Mars is a Yogakaraka and Saturn happens to be in Mars' vargas, then Saturn is automatically rendered strong.

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?

A: Namaskaram,

In my experience, 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:

  • the outcome predicted by the distance of the graha from the mahadasha pati (in this case, Budha 12th from Guru)
  • the social-material effects of 2 bhava from radical lagna as well as the psycho-emotional effects of 2 bhava from Chandra lagna.

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.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush enjoys a parivartamsha of Budha-Karkata in lagna + Chandra-Kanya in bhava-3. When Bush entered the Budha-Budha swabhukti about 2/3 of the way through his 8-year term, he should have suffered obscurity caused by dissolution-of-identity ruler-of-12 Budha and overload of petty administrative tasks like meetings and schedules due to Budha's bhratrupathi-3 function.

  • But that didn't happen. He attended fewer meetings than ever, and accomplished just as much == by delegating most of his decisions to VPOTUS In My Time 1941- Dick Cheney. His approval ratings did drop but he didn't disappear from view at all.
  • Lagnesha Chandra in parivartamsha with Budha kept Bush's presence very strong. He continued to look fit and capable, bumbling no worse and no better than before. Observers had the sense that it was the same old George (lagnesha) not impaired in any way, and he wasn't looking as exhausted even as presidents typically look during their final years in office.
  • Even with transiting Ketu moving over his Karkata lagna during the final 8 months of his term, the virtual Chandra-Karkata kept him looking vital (lagnesha) not burned out with mental tasks like we might expect from an inauspicious Budha period for the predominantly emotional Karkata lagna.

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 Computer Science professional specialized in AI. I was born in traditional Brahmin family and in childhood I learnt Jyotish as a legacy.

Parivartan Yoga is kind of my research and interest and today I read your webpage on Exchange houses and I must say you did a really good job and put lots of ref.

I want to know more about Kendra and Trikona exchange ( eg. exchange between -- 5th house and 10th house or 5th house and 9th house or 5th house and 7th house etc.) and any help from you would be highly appreciated....

Once again I must appreciate your effort in making and maintaining your wonderful website.

A: Namaste,

Thanks very much for your compliments on

Your research area is intriguing! You probably know more than I do about parivartamsha effects between kendra and trikona lords.

Some possible examples of the kendra-trikona exchange might be:

  • India-PM 1917-1984 Indira Gandhi * triple parivartamsha yoga

  • Russ-Soviet 1878-1953 Man-of-Steel Josef Stalin * yuvatipathi-7 + karmesha-10 Guru-Makara parivartamsha randhresha-8 + dharmesha-9 Shani-Meena

Other parivartamsha power-leaders:

Please keep me apprised of your research! Fascinating subject!

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

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.

In general,

  • Social-Material effects which are pre-agreed in consensus reality, such as cintamani * mani * money in the bank, bodily health, housing and vehicles, may be read from the radix lagna.

  • Psycho-emotional effects which may be uniquely personal and individualized perception and evaluation, such as family relationships, spiritual progress, and positive or negative expectations, may be read largely from the Chandra lagna.

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.

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

  1. rulership of each graha as counted from radix lagna

  2. rulership of each graha as counted from the Chandra lagna

  3. rulership of each graha as counted from the mahadashapathi

Best wishes for your success in Jyotisha studies,

Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotisha


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.

  • Yet in its original condition, before examination of the parivartamsha empowerment,

  • the nativity appears rather fixated on work, attractive but not gifted,

  • aggressive Mangala in the political Simha lagna indicates a willingness to use military force

But there is much more to her story!

  • India-PM 1917-1984 Indira Gandhi was am extremely unusual woman. One of the fascinating features of her life was her surprising popularity with the people.

  • She had a strange and wonderful emotional appeal to the common folk who envisioned her as a manifestation of the goddess Durga. She wielded a power which was absolutely unprecedented in her cultural era, when women had extremely limited permission to be involved in public activities. Over the period of 14 years of extraordinary public empowerment, she led a huge nation through several cycles of political and economic crisis.

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.

A: Namaste,

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.

Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotisha

Q: Hi Barbara, Happy New Year. A quick question, is parivartana yoga possible between 3 planets?

I am thinking of this group of three:

  1. Saturn in Scorpio
  2. Mars in Sagittarius
  3. Jupiter in Aquarius.
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.

  1. Shani in Vrizchika can only gain parivartamsha from Mangala-Kumbha or Mangala-Maraka. Saturn in Scorpio cannot enter a parivartamsha yoga with Mars in Sagittarius.
  2. Mangala in Dhanushya can only gain parivartamsha from Guru . To provide the parivartamsha, Guru can occupy either of Mangala's rashi: Vrizchika or Mesha. Mars in Sagittarius cannot enter a parivartamsha yoga with Jupiter in Aquarius.
  3. Guru-Kumbha can only gain parivartamsha from Shani. Shani can occupy either of Guru's rashi: Shani-Meena or Shani-Dhanusya.

Wishing you every happiness and success in your study of the samayavidya,

Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama Jyotisha
