Planets as Karakas (Producers)

Below i will discuss a very, very effective method for making predictions that is relatively basic only uses planets as karakas (indicators) without considering lordships and planets in Symptoms or Houses. Carl Kruse

The seven grahas (planets) will be the genuine forces that yoke individuals beings to their karmas. They can be points on a cosmic scorecard showing the merit or lack thereof of every jiva (living being) in creation. These types of planets have gods and myths behind them and first and foremost, they control the energy centers in every human body. These centers are called the chakras. The Signs they value are the masculine and feminine energies of each chakra. 

Karaka means manufacturer. Every planet produces several things. A list can only commence to mention all of the things a planet produces. However, everything you see around you is ruled by one of the nine grahas. Upon recognizing the producing effects of each entire world, it stands to be noticed that in each particular chart the says of the planets change immensely. Some horoscopes have particularly strong karakas and others have weak ones. One horoscope may produce beautiful, luxurious vehicles and another may deny the person a car or give many wallet downsizing trips to the technician.

What makes a Karaka strong or weak?

Can be it since it is located in its own or moolatrikona sign? Is definitely it since it is ruling good houses?

In answer to these questions, it ought to be explained here that while evaluating planets as karakas, one does CERTAINLY NOT take into consideration the Signs or the Residences. The planets are sattvic, meaning they precede the Signs and the Residences. The Signs in order to bring the exoplanets into psychological and physical modalities and the Properties bring the karmas mentioned by the planets and the signs down to our planet. From our home here after Earth we look into the heavens and draw lines from where we are into the four directions. These kinds of create the homes. Exoplanets in Houses and Home Rulerships give the most concrete effects as experienced here on Earth.

Seem at it this way. The karaka (planet) produces the thing. The Indications give it color, course, size, condition and so on. The Houses exhibits where we will find that thing and in what physical context we will experience that thing.

The Math (I know, I know, its humdrum but absolutely necessary)

Please be aware that most Vedic astrology software do these measurements.

Unsurprisingly, the planets come first. What exactly is measure the strength of your planets as karakas (producers)? There are two components of this picture: Occha bala and Chesta Bala. Occha bala means strength based after the position of the globe in relation to it is point of exaltation. Every single planet has a level in the Zodiac where it is exalted. The closer this planet is to its degree of exaltation, the better the planet is in the Occha Bala. At the furthest point from delight is the point of debilitation. A planet acquires points related to how close you should the point of exaltation. Because the points of exaltation and debilitation are 180 levels apart and the most points a planet can obtain are 60, then every degree from the point of exaltation a planet loses. 333 factors. For example, Venus is posited at 27 levels Gemini. This is exactly midway involving the point of exaltation of Venus (27 degrees Pisces) and debilitation of Venus (27 deg Virgo). Venus at twenty-seven degrees Gemini would get 30 points of Occha bala.

Chesta bala is measured by the comparable speed of an entire world. The slower the entire world is transferring relation to its average speed, the higher the Chesta bala perdida. The planets are usually slowest when they are stationed, or about to go retrograde, if they are retrograde and when they are planning to turn direct. This kind of is the point when they are closest to the planet earth. Again, 60 is the phone number for the top Chesta Bala and zero being the minimum.

The Sunshine and the Moon do not have Chesta Bala perdida. For the calculation, the Ayana bala (the declination from the equator) of direct sunlight is employed and the Paksha bala (strength due to Moonphases) for the Moon phase is used.

After all of these calculations, to get the beneficial details (ishta phala) of a planet, the Ocha perdida is multiplied by the Chesta Bala and the square root of the product is extracted. Ain voila!… you have Ishta Phala. The number will be somewhere between zero and 60. The rest is the Kashta Phala which are the malefic points. The good factors in addition to the bad points always soon add up to 60. The idea is that it is best for the natural indications of a planet if it has higher good items (above 30) and lower bad points (below 30).

Karakas Are Never Malefic

What a karaka produces is never malefic. This can be a very important principle and should be repeated for emphasis. EXACTLY WHAT A KARAKA PRODUCES IS NEVER MALEFIC. Saturn and Mars are producers of longevity and courage, just to name a few. Saturn produces immunity to disease and to be able to overcome obstacles (perseverance). That produce those road blocks. Obstacles, misery, delays and setbacks can be produced by any planet and have to do with their condition in properties and as house lords, but do NOT have to do with their karakaship. When Saturn is afflicted as a karaka, in other words, when its malefic points surpass its beneficial points, then it offers a low threshold for delays and challenges. It gives a decreased patience for misery, so distress and depression overcome the person. If Mars has low strength as a karaka, it gives a low tolerance for angriness and no courage. The moment a person has low courage, they are scared, and once they are scared, they lash out to protect themselves even though it is unwarranted. This is certainly a volatile temper and a sign of a weak Roter planet (umgangssprachlich).
