Directory of Chandra Pages

After age 50 there is a "sea change" : the Chandra Lagna gains superior strength.

From the Chandra Lagna, the Moon occupies the horizon.

After age 50, Jyotisha nativities should be read primarily from the baseline of the Chandra lagna.

  • After age 50, the bhava occupied by Chandra as counted from the indriya-lagna becomes increasingly less important.

  • Any negative effects associated with Chandra's angle to svakshetra will disappear after age 50.

  • Negative effects of malefic drishti and other less benevolent yoga not related to bhava location will however persist.

Career after 50:

May be accurately assessed from the bhava which is the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra

  • mid-career change or "second career" after 50, specifically read from the detailed character of 10th-from-Chandra



Chandra-dushthamsha- caused bad situations get better

Marriage or remarriage, alliance after 50

matters of habitual or programmed behavior within the partnership and timing of wedding may be assessed accurately from The navamsha Chandra axis

divorce timing: look to Vimshottari dasha periods of rulers of 2nd, 6th or 8th from indriya-lagna (depending on the circumstances)

  • the 6th = strongest marker of legal dissolution of the contract

if no match, the 6th-from-Chandra can give timing of divorce

2nd from Chandra can reveal the character of second life partner

until the watershed change near the age of 50, Chandra in 6 for Tula indriya-lagna may be unappreciated in leadership roles (10), be professionally distrusted or disliked, be argumentative in the professional discourse, and move from each exploitive workplace (6) or service job to another low rank, with few improvements.

  • after age 50, chandra lagna becomes the predominant basis for predictions, and thus from a Meena-Chandra lagna the 10th becomes ruled by Guru and unless Guru is exceptionally ill-disposed the all-good dharma-pati is likely to bring a good improvement in career which is caused by an increased in optimism. The career-wise planned misalignments requiring realignment attention posed by natal karmesha-10 in 6 will be washed away by the tides of time.

  • (For Tula indriya-lagna, the salary or other income is not affected by karmesha-10 but is controlled by vriddhi-pati-11 Surya; being disliked or mistrusted one may still earn well if Surya is strong)

For Makara-Draco lagna, chandra-Dhanus-12 can signal a withdrawal of the spouse into private reverie, perhaps due to the partner's relationship with private"enemies of the marriage" (6th from 7th = 12th). Until the watershed change near the age of 50, a Makara-Draco native with Chandra-12 can be emotionally unhappy in marriage due to the poorly disposed yuvati-pati-7 Chandra.

  • The problems never completely evaporate because even from the Chandra lagna, Karkata-7 becomes the relative 8th bhava, and secrecy of the spousal behavior may persist. However, after age 50 this negative angle regarding the life union will largely relax, because the 7th from Chandra = Mithuna becomes a more accurate basis for spousal response and the spouse becomes more conversational which certainly helps the partnership.

The"magic 50" situation for Meena Chandra + Tula indriya-lagna is most dramatic because the first post- 50th-birthday mahadasha will be Chandra mahadasha.

However, "Magic 50" has beneficial results for births within all of the 12 lagna. Difficulties related to Chandra-dushthamsha for any indriya-lagna will begin to recede at age 50 and gradually dissipate into a mature understanding of The Plan.
