Atma-Karaka = the chara atmakaraka of the Jaimini Karaka" group.
For"chara"atmakaraka = of all the planets in all the 12 signs, one of them will have the superior degree.
Even if there is more than one planet occupying 29 degrees of any sign, within those 29 degree planets only one will be the closest to 29:29:29.
(No doubt there will be extremely rare cases where this is not so; and that fact itself would signify an extraordinary birth.)
1.Karakamsha= the navamsha rashi of the Atmakaraka.
Locate this rashi in radix
In this usage, the Karakamsa Rashi =
The navamsha rashi occupied by the Atmakaraka planet,
The karakamza = one of the 12 rashi.
The "karakamsha lagna" the Karakamsa Rashi = can be located and utilized within any varga, including radix or navamsha.
As utilized within the radix D-1 which is the varga of social and physical materialization, the Karakamsha lagna = the greatest materialization success, or most notable achievements, or behavior for which the native will become best known.
Karakamsha shows for what *actions * the native will be most productive and best known by the public.
2.Karakamsha= lord of the Arudha lagna :
To find the karakamsha lagna which = the rashi of the lord of the arudha lagna :
Q: Respected madam, Namaskar.
I am confused again about determination of Atmakarka.
Should it be Rahu in the last seconds of the rashi subtracting for the reverse motion, or Shani?
A: Normally, Rahu or Ketu are not used as atma-karaka. They are not deities. They cannot be significators of the soul. However, other respected practitioners of the vidya do say that they use Rahu-Ketu as atma-karaka. Each practitioner uses their own judgment.
Use Shani or any other graha that has mass (no upgraha).
~~ Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotishavidya
Can the Karakamsha axes be used in assessing the marriage compatibility, as you have used for cross-over matching axes with Lagnas of D-9, Chandra, and Rahu -Ketu. Can these be included for more finer compatibility matching?
My Karakamsha axis will match her Lagna axis, and her Karakamsha axis matches my Navamsha Moon axis. Is it true that the more the axes matchings is better the Compatibility? Can this be considered?
So far as I know, the Karakamsha does not have an important influence on interpersonal compatibility.
Karakamsha in every varga does show public perception about one's work and the significance of one's social role performance .
The more"personal" internal emotional and spiritual indicators are usually D-9 for"mirroring" partnership interaction, Chandra in all charts, Rahu-Ketu especially in their relationship to Chandra, and any of the specific varga charts which may speak to the specific relationship e.g. D-3 = siblings, D-12 = parents, D-4 = schoolteachers (not university professors but conventional school teachers) .
The more"public" external professional and material performance indicators are usually the karakamsha+ karmesha-10 in D-1 and D-9, the D-10 and all their cross-matchings.
Karakamsha in the usage = navamsha rashi of the graha holding the highest degree, as that rashi is positioned relative to janma lagna and chandra lagna in radix, is most specifically a predictor of the substance and style of the native 's performance in public life.
For some people, there is only a very thin boundary between one's public life and one's private life.
When the karakamsha = radix lagna, one's public destiny becomes exceptionally strong and tied to the physical appearance.
Since the radix lagna is half of the"relationship axis " formed by bhava-1 and bhava-7, there might be some nativities in which the karakamsha = lagna does indeed suggest that karakamsha characteristics do play a large role in the marriage dynamics.
However, normally the karakamsha would not figure into a marriage compatibility assessment.
radix D-1 karakamsha = Kumbha bhava-8 = fear of the unknown, occult mystery, secrets, terror, conditions of death.
Example of Jaimini karakamsha lagna = bhava-8 Conditions of dematerialization
Total Surrender 1910-1997 Mother Teresa of Kolkata death-healer of the destitute
Example: POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt = karakamsha Vrischika-1 unique personal identity
According to this method, Franklin D. Roosevelt should have been best known for his uniqueness. No other USA POTUS has served three terms of office. (After his death it was illegalized.)
Due to the ruler of karakamsha Rahu-1 being an empowered Mangala-Mithunaya + Mangala in bhava-8 + Kuja-yuti-Chandra, FDR is also well-remembered for his radio talks, press briefings, and newspaper articles during a series of catastrophic upheavals in American life: the Great Depression followed immediately by WW-2.
The injunction to follow his extraordinary example of Rahu-1 fearlessness "We have nothing to Fear but Fear Itself" is indelibly associated with FDR. It is easy to support the conclusion that bhava-1 containing Vrischika-Rahu-1 is indeed the karakamsha.
