BPL Commentary

Parivartamsha yoga increases the power of the two bhava involved. 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 papagraha = 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.

Her stadium-size audience noticed no loss of luster in her performance. She starred in and produced numerous highly praised films.

Three varieties of parivartamsha yoga:

  1. growth-challenging
  2. smooth
  3. 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.

  • POTUS-pair-06 Adams Family 1775-1852 Louisa Johnson Adams * Ketu-yuti-Zukra * Budha-yuti-Surya * Budha-6 parivartamsha Shani-1. LJA's life from childhood demanded nearly constant dealing with war, debt, and ailment (6) First her father's business misfortunes in times of war, and then her husband's JQA's governance and diplomatic duties in times of war. The nature of the travel experiences was never pleasurable; usually cold and miserable (Shani-1 Kanya). Despite her chronic health problems and ongoing bouts of severe depression = Budha-yuti-Ketu, LJA was able to summon the discipline (Shani-1) to conduct most of the required entertainments (Shani-1 rules 5). However, she was often overwhelmed by problems both public and private, and demurred from social duty, which brought criticism upon her. Shani-Budha are friendly but the Kumbha-Kanya angle is 6/8 disjointed. The parivartamsha did contribute Shani-stamina (she lived to age 77) Yet, it also generated a heavier workload, as typical of parivartamsha yoga involving Shani.

rogesha -6 ++ dhanesha-treasurer-2

Rogesha increases the learning curriculum of ongoing sickness and conflict. Nevertheless, this parivartamsha yoga occupies a mutual trine angle. The capacity to attract treasury funding (2) for a ministry of service (6) is enhanced. One speaks the truth (2) regarding perpetual conflicts (6) regarding exploitation of marginalized ethnicities and cultures (Chandra), regarding poverty and its miseries (6), regarding the stories (2) of the servants (6).

Under his guidance, his community achieved a much higher standard of living due to their improved values (2) and conflict-management skills (6).

  • Be Here Now 1931-2019 Baba Ram Dass * Chandra-6-nichha parivartamsha Kuja-2-nichha * RD took his spiritual comedy routine (2-storytelling) on the road in the late 1960's. Drawing from the endless foibles of his own life (6) RD taught about the hypocrisies of human character with a legendary humor.

  • Lipstick 1954-1996 drama-model Margaux Hemingway * Zukira-6 parivartamsha Shani-2-uttama * the exchange was itself exceptionally beneficial. A stunningly beautiful young woman due to her splendid bone structure and balanced features (Zukra-Shani), MH was awarded a 1-million-USD modeling contract at age 19. By age 20, she had also enjoyed an early success in cinema-drama. Once touted as "the face of a generation" her career collapsed under the weight of Zukra-6 (+Budha+Surya) addictions, bi-polar disorder, and PTSD from childhood sexual abuse. A tradition of suicide in her family (2) perhaps encouraged her own suicide in despair over a failed career (Ketu-10) her age 42.

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 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-bhratru-pati-3 partner cannot be also a dusthamsha ruler. (If the non-bhratru-pati-3 partner would be a dusthamsha lord, the yoga would be Dainya, above.)

The non-bhratru-pati-3 partner = lord of 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, or 11.

The bhratru-pati-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 = bhratru-pati-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.

However the first years were hopeful due to his communications abilities. FA initiated an unprecedented series of radio addresses (3) from His Royal Highness speaking to the people (Shani rules 4-citizens, subjects). This charming style of public outreach was hailed as the sign of better engagement with the folk (never done by his regal predecessor father, who did not speak Arabic.)

Profit from writing (3rd-from-Guru) and from real-estate (Guru occupies 11th-from-Shani).

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.

Pasteur's life was both energized and frequently overwhelmed by a challenging double parivartamsha yoga . His uttama-Kuja-yuti-Rahu-12 (research) joined an exchange between Shani-3-nichha . LP was uncollaborative (nichha-Shani-3) and prone toward internecine feuds with other scientists arising from his dominating behavior.

With his wife's family assets (uttama-Zukra), adult Jackson purchased his first slave in 1787. He bought a slave-labor plantation in Tennessee called The Hermitage. Profits (11) from agricultural property and human-slave property (4) were substantial. The image of The Hermitage was widely used on AJ's political campaign materials, marking him as a frontier planter (4) of financial achievement (11).

Ruler of 4-9 (Zukra) exchange with ruler of 2-11 (the moneymaker, Guru) with boost from Rahu-Chandra. Extraordinary patriotism mixed with economic improvements both personal and national.

vidya-pati-5 ++ ruler of 7, 9, 10, or 11

Maha-Parivartamsha of vidya-pati-5 exchange with yuvati-pati-7 or dharma-pati-9 or karma-pati-10 or the Labhapathi-11.

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, matters of celebrity, politics, children, creative arts and literature, gamesmanship and winnings from speculation are enhanced.

Regardless of potentially humble circumstances of birth, Exchange of the ruler of 5-and-10 may indicate extraordinary political (5) and governance (10) empowerment

vidya-pati-5 ++ yuvati-pati-7

Benefits expressed via the business-mind for contracts, deals, bargaining, arrangements (social, financial, musical).via 7 ++ performance genius, scriptwriting, creative producer roles (5)

vidya-pati-5 ++ karmesha-10 ** see below

vidya-pati-5 ++ dharma-pati-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.


vidya-pati-5 ++ karma-pati-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.

During her 63 year reign, the Divine Right of Kings was whittled down to a budgetary allowance for elite royalty under the Constitutional Monarchy. QV successfully petitioned (7) many times (Guru multiplier) for continuing payments from Parliament. Although her requests were often delayed, they were never denied. There was enough weight (Shani) in the old worldview (9) for the common people (Shani) to agree (7) to be taxed in order to sustain (Shani) her luxury lifestyle.The legal subsidies (7) continued uninterrupted until her death.

In 11th-from-11th = Zukra + (mother) Chandra-yuti-Guru (9) ++ while in the economically profit-seeking 11th itself = Surya (father) ++ Budha-yuti-Ketu (11). (Additionally, uttama-Rahu occupies 10th navamsha). Many of the individual factors of the nativity are growth-challenging, such as the pitrikaraka. However, the profitability produced by this parivartamsha = remarkable.

Karmesha-10 exchange with Vriddhi-pati-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

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter * Surya-Kanya-12 exchange with Budha-Simha-11. JEC engaged in a multi-decade community (11) service ministry (Kanya).

  • General Electric CEO 1935-2020 Jack Welch * Guru-10 exchanges with Mangala-11 ++ Kuja-yuti-Rahu . JW career was marked by extraordinary ascents up the corporate hierarchy which seemed to leapfrog (Rahu) over the established ranking (10). His tenure was marked by aggressive innovation (Mangala) expansive optimism (Guru) and a fascinating pattern of barrier-bending, taboo-twisting risks (Rahu)

An important difference:

Parivartamsha vs. Mutual-Aspect.

The Yoga of Pari-varta -amsha = re-vers -al of amounts

Parivartamsha yoga strengthens both graha -- even if they are both papagraha. Increases their capacity and their activity.

Activity and effectiveness is increased because the Vimshottari Dasha period of graha-partner-1 can produce the effects of graha-partner-2.

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 life challenge. It may be associated with repressed anger which threatens to consumes one's life force, eventually blocking the accomplishments for which Shani expends His greatest efforts.

  • Chronic tension via the oppressive mutual drishti of Shani-and-Mangala. Mangala insists on vigorously moving forward yet Shani staunchly resists change

Yet, parivartamsha yoga between Shani and Kuja , no matter how much it might repress the animal vitality ,

  • provides full discipline from Shani

  • provides full productivity from Mangala .

One may accomplish social-material aims in life despite a personal propensity to take the longer, harder road toward each 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.

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

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

  • POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon * Zukra-2 parivartamsha Shani-5-lagnesha. Nixon was not an easy social being. His wife Pat Nixon was a tremendous aid to his political career, contributing her gracious, non-confrontational (Zukra) efforts (Shani) in attending political-social functions (Shani-5) and staying in touch with supporting community organizations (Shani). 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,

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 * comforted by remedial service * sensitive to logical argument * needs to help* in bhava-3. When Bush entered the Budha-Budha svabhukti 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 bhratru-pati-3 function.

  • But that didn't happen. 43 attended fewer meetings than ever, and accomplished just as much == by delegating most of his decisions to VPOTUS Military Weapons Contracts 1941- Dick Cheney. 43's approval ratings did drop but he didn't disappear from view at all.
  • Lagnesha Chandra-3 in parivartamsha with Budha-1 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 bhukti 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 bhukti began, 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

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-electro-magnetic 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 Svamsha.

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 calendar 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 Mahadasha-pati

Wishing you and your family every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, and success in all of life’s endeavors,

Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotishavidya


India-PM 1917-1984 Martial Law Indira Gandhi = Double Parivartamsha

The basic kundali reveals a strong and disciplined personality.

  • Kumbha radical lagna (rare for women)

  • Dhaniztha nakshatra rising - ruled by Mangala - makes a "social engineer" pursuing change in government and large corporations

  • Somana-yuti-Zukra * Somana-yuti-Rahu = highly complex, self-indulgent, and Mula-Rahu the Annihilator seeks opportunity through Risk

Consideration of her double parivartamsha yoga - involving Rahu and bhava-10 - adds even more to her story!

  • India-PM 1917-1984 Martial Law 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 4 with 11 ++ 7 with-10

Kuja casts drishti to 10-1-2-and-Guru casts drishti to 8-10-12

Due to the exchange impact of the Parashari graha-drishti, bhava-10 authority leadership receives not only normal drishti of Kuja and Guru, but also invoking the parivartamsha powers bhava-10 gets effects of Rahu-amplified Zukra and a double-power Surya.

That is a lot of political, economic, and communications power!

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! 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, Jyotishavidya

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 yoga 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 Dhanuzya 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-Dhanuzya.

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

Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama Jyotisha
