The first part of this paper has dealt with the connection between the Dasa-Bhukti lords and transiting planets covering favourable results. There are other principles which can also be applied in deciphering unfavorable results to the Dasa-Bhukti lords against the transits of planets.
1)The Dasa and Bhukti lords portending evil results in the natal chart and joining together or coming in mutual opposition in transit in malefic houses from the natal Moon or the natal Ascendant will bring about evil results.
2)When the Dasa and Bhukti of malefic planets are running and one of them transits over the other, then the bad effect suggested in the natal chart will manifest itself.
3)When both the Dasa and Bhukti lords are natural malefics and form a formidable combination in the natal chart and one of them moves on or aspects that natal combination in transit while the other moves on or aspects the natal Ascendant, Moon-sign or the 10th house from them, the native will experience very bad results and commit grave mistakes due to poor judgment.
4)The Dasa or Bhukti lord transiting his debilitation sign and suffering combustion at the same time will give very bad results.
5)If the Dasa or Bhukti lord occupies his debilitation sign in a bad house in the natal chart and transits the same sign then that period will be unfavorable.
6)When a Dasa or Bhukti lord moves over a planet debilitated in the natal chart and also joins the same planet in transit, then the period will give bad results.
7)When either the Dasa or Bhukti lords is debilitated and posited in a bad house in the natal chart and the Dasa and Bhukti lords in transit move through or aspect that house, then the native will experience bad results as indicated by that house.
8)The Dasa and Bhukti lords both moving over or aspecting natal debilitated planets will bring bad results like loss of position etc.
Inimical Signs and Planets
9)When a Dasa or Bhukti lord in transit moves in an inimical sign joined by planets inimical to him, then that period will give bad results.
10) When Jupiter is either the Dasa and Bhukti lord and joins his enemies Venus or Mercury or both in transit in an inimical or debilitation sign, then the native will experience bad results.
11)The Dasa or Bhukti lord though moving in exaltation, friendly or own sign will give unfavorable results when combust at the same time.
Malefic Planets and Positions
12)Transit of malefic planets over Dasa or Bhukti lord who is disposed badly in the natal chart will give bad results.
13)Though a planet transits his exaltation, own or friendly sign that will not preclude him from giving unfavorable results if that sign happens to be the 6th, 8th or 12th house from the natal Ascendant or natal Moon.
14)When a Dasa or Bhukti lord transits his natal position joined by transiting malefic planets, the native will experience bad results.
15)When a Dasa or Bhukti lord moves in his debilitation sign or a malefic house from the natal Ascendant or natal Moon and is simultaneously influenced by transit Saturn and Mars either by conjunction or aspect then the period indicates unfortunate events.
16)When the Dasa or Bhukti lord moves over a natal planet that owns bad houses and joins the same planet in transit also, then the native will experience bad results of the house pertaining to that natal planet.
17)When the Dasa or Bhukti lord activates a formidable natal combination in transit and simultaneously suffers combustion or affliction by transiting malefic planets, the native experiences very bad results indicated by the natal combination.
18)When Saturn is one among the Dasa and Bhukti lords and generates sadesathe in transit (moves in the 12th, 1st or 2nd from natal Moon) while the other lord simultaneously indicates bad results in transit, the native will face difficult circumstances.
The Dasa or Bhukti lord joining transit pronounced when the planet moves through his inimical or debilitation sign.
20) Rahu transiting on natal position of Dasa or Bhukti lord will be bad.
21) When transit Rahu moves over a planet whose Dasa or Bhukti is current and the planer simultaneously transits his debilitation or inimical sign or suffers combustion, bad results follow.
22) When both the Dasa and Bhukti lords move over a bad natal combination joined with transit Rahu then that period will prove to be unfavorable.
23) When Rahu or Ketu is the Dasa or bhukti lord, the transit or aspect of the node over natal Ascendant or natal moon may give bad results.
24) If the Dasa or Bhukti lord transits natal Rahu while transit Rahu simultaneously transits over the natal position of the said planet, then the native will experience bad results.
The same case discussed in Part I
of this paper is examined in the light of these principles for unfavorable results.
Male: Born May 9, 1979 at 21h. 30m. IST at 16N 17, 80E 26.
Event XIII: Father’s heart attack and bypass surgery • Rahu Dasa -Mars Bhukti
The natives father suffered a heart attack on October 2, 2002 and had undergo bypass surgery on November 11, 2002. The 9th house lodges Saturn in an inimical sign with Rahu while the 9th lord and Karaka Sun is exalted in the 5th with Mars and Mercury. The 9th is hemmed between benefics exalted Jupiter and Full Moon. Thus though the 9th house is considerably afflicted, the 9th lord and Karaka Sun is fortified and the 9th house is protected by the benefic Argala
Vimshottari: Both the Dasa and Bhukti lords are natural malefics. The Dasa lord Rahu is in the 9th with Saturn. Rahu occupies the Nakshatra of Venus who is in the 4th (8th from the 9th). The Bhukti lord Mars joins the 9th lord Sun in the 5th house along with Mercury. Mercury is a Maraka from the 9th house. Mars occupies the Nakshatra of Ketu who is in the 3rd house, the 7th from the 9th. Mars Bhukti is the last in Rahu Dasa coming under Dasa-chidram which usually gives bad results.
Transits: Dasa lord Rahu was transiting Taurus, the 9th house from the natal Moon. Bhukti lord Mars was transiting natal Saturn and Rahu in Leo, the 9th house from the natal Ascendant.
Event XIV: Father’s Hip Fracture and Operation: Jupiter Dasa-Ketu Bhukti • On October 24, 2010, the native’s father fell down and had a hip fracture which was operated upon on November 2, 2010 and a joint replacement done.
Vimshottari: Dasa lord Jupiter is in the 8th house, the 12th from the 9th and happens to be the 8th lord from the 9th house. Jupiter occupies the Nakshatra of Saturn who is in the 9th along with Rahu. The Bhukti lord Ketu is in the 3rd and should give the results of Saturn who occupies the 9th house with Rahu. Both Dasa and Bhukti lords are in Shastashtaka or mutually unfavorable positions.
Transits: The Dasa lord Jupiter was transiting Pisces, the 8th house from the natal 9th house. The Bhukti lord Ketu was transiting Gemini, his debilitation sign, aspecting the natal Ascendant.
Event XV: Heart Problem to Mother: Jupiter Dasa-Venus Bhukti • The native’s mother had to be hospitalized on September 28, 2011 as she was complaining of shortness of breath. It was diagnosed as heart failure because of reduced EF %.
Vimshottari: The Dasa lord Jupiter is the 4th lord from both the Ascendant and the Moon- sign. Though in his exaltation sign, Jupiter is in the 8th house from the Ascendant in the Nakshatra of Saturn who is placed in the 6th from the 4th in Leo which rules the heart. The Bhukti lord Venus is the 6th and 11th lord from Ascendant and occupies the 4th house aspected by 8th lord and Karaka Moon. From the 4th house Venus is the 3rd and 8th lord.
Transits: The Dasa lord Jupiter was in Aries, the 8th house from the natal Moon-sign aspecting Libra, the 8th from the 4th house from the natal Ascendant. The Bhukti lord Venus was transiting his debilitation sign Virgo where the natal Moon, the Karaka, is placed. Transit Venus was with transit Saturn, the Sun, Moon and Mercury aspecting Pisces, the 4th house from the natal Ascendant.
This case illustrates the principles given in Phaladeepika very well.
