of the Navamsha


Nourished Portions of Fortune and Resilience

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

What can be predicted?


The karaka must be strong at birth.

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

Then, if in addition to enjoying its 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.
