more on neecha bhanga rajayoga

there are many rules for neecha bhanga rajayogas but this is what i use, from my experience:

1) if a planet in neecha, then the lord of that neecha rasi should be in a good beneficial position in strength from both lagna and chandra.

or 2) the planet who gets exalted in the previously mentioned neecha rasi, should be in a good beneficial position in strength

eg. mesha lagna, with neecha sani in it.
for simplicity sake, lets suppose chandra is also in mesha.

then neecha bhanga of sani should be brought about by Kuja or Surya.

if it is by surya, i would prefer surya to be in 1st, 3rd, 5th or 9th,
rather than in 7th or 10th, as 7th happens to be surya's neecha rasi thula and 10th- makara- a satru kshetra.

(so, lets not get stuck to the conventionally used rules like the neecha bhanga causing planet has to be in a kendra.)

now, can navamsas act in neecha bhanga rajayoga?
yes, by helping us assess the balam of grahas.
(navamsa is only one method of assessing strength..lets not forget shadbalas..ishta phala etc...)

suppose a planet is neecha in navamsa, will neecha bhanga happen by the corresponding planets occupying the positions as mentioned before?

i strongly believe, navamsas are only for assessment of balam and not phalam.
balam = strength
phalam = result.

if you want to make life complicated go for all the navamsa based intricate predictions.
believe me, you will have a very tough time..
for each ayanamsa method you will have different navamsas!

when simple rules are applied with sense, we get good results.
why complicate?

what is the result of neecha bhanga raja yoga?
and is it possible to calculate the time of cancellation of debility?

suppose, sani is neecha what is the result?
will it cause severe lack of discipline?
vata imbalance?
a very high desire to be a leader, but still no drive to pursue it?

now u may understand why sani gets neecha bhanga through surya or kuja?
those 2 planets are high drive personalities.

if, sani gets aspected/combined with kuja or surya, then neecha bhanga gets more expressiveness (like how einstein got neecha bhanga by the yoga of exalted sukra with neecha budha.)

time period?
look out for the dasa apaharas of bhanga causing planets.

it is an exciting exercise.

Results for Gemstones

Some astrologers and jewellers assure that a gemstone will solve all the problems.
Lets see:

If anyone wears a Ruby / Manikyam will that take care of his Surya/Sun affliction?
or for that matter can any stone be a remedy for graha doshas?

it is like asking, if one chants mahamrtyunjaya 108 times, will one get cured of his diseases, will he get extension of life? or how many days/years/no of times one should chant to get results?

I answer, it is all about your mind...if you wear it/chant with poorna arpanam, (full devotion), it will surely help you in reducing the evils..will bring more positivity.

"have you tested it?"
apparently, only 5 out of 100 cases, gemstones have helped.
atleast 50 of 100 cases, regular chantings have helped.
a combination of both, better.

i suggest gemstones, when i feel the concerned person's energy is very low.
sometimes, the energy levels are so low, that you can't even pray!
travel, trekking, a good book..anything can change the mind set...
it is all about how to trigger the change...

i have seen many who have never broken daily religious rituals and yet affected by very serious mundane issues. the saying goes like: even siva and krishna had to suffer the wrath of grahas!
But the way, practitioners rebound and the in-disciplined ones suffer have to be really observed!

Let me summarize the way Gemstones have to be worn.

Keep the stone/(however u want to wear, as a ring..bracelet or whatever) at a positive energy zone, say in your pooja room..
Chant the mantra for the graha (more the number of times you chant, the better.), for a minimum of 7 days, and then only wear it.

try to wear Ruby (for surya/sun
on a Sunday btwn 6 30 and 7 30 am on rt ring finger
Pearl/muthu for Chandra/moon on monday, same time, on rt ring finger
Pavizham/Coral for Kuja/Mars on tuesday(time remains same), on rt ring finger
Maratakam/emerald for Budha/mercury on wednesday on rt little finger
Yellow sapphire//pushyaragam for Gur/jupiter on thursday on rt index or ring finger
Diamond/ vajram for Sukra/venus on friday on rt thumb or middle finger
Blue sapphire/indraneelam for sani/saturn on saturday on rt middle finger

gomedaka/hessonite garnet for rahu/dragons head on saturday  on lt middle finger
Cats eye/vaidhoorya for ketu/dragon's tail on tuesday on lt ring finger.

for graha mantras refer:

i have come to understand that a small stone with good transparency and color will work better than large stone with less clarity. Also, don't bother too much if it has to be in silver or gold or copper.
Silver is very much ok.

it is better that we wear stones after a proper analysis.
for eg. wearing cats eye during the period of chandra dasa or surya dasa may prove to be very difficult.

good luck.

Spiritual effects of Guru/Jupiter transit into Mithuna/Gemini

When we consider transits, most importance is generally given to Jupiter's and Saturn's.
Jupiter's movement into Gemini will take some more time to be fully felt as per the 2nd line of the sloka:

Dinakara rudhirou pravesa kalae
GuruBhrgujou bhavanasya madhyayathou
Ravisuthasasinou vinirgamasthou
sasithanaya: phaladasthu sarvakaalam.

who all will gain maximum?
(lagna or moon in these signs)
Rishabha rasi people will have Guru in 2nd and Sani in 6th.
Simha rasi----------Guru in 11th and Sani in 3rd
Dhanu--------------Guru in 7th and Sani in 11th

But it is Libra/Thula and aquarius/Kumbha rasi people who will feel the spiritual effects of Guru's transit more than any other signs, as Guru will be in 9th or 5th and at the same time Sani+ rahu is unsettling in janma/lagna or 9th respectively for those signs.

it goes without saying that we will have to consider the total effect of relative positions from lagna-chandra and surya rasis.

lets keep watching..

planetary combinations or states which make you feel high in your own eyes as well as in others' can be called rajayogas.

suppose, one has a raja yoga combination in one's chart but had no supporting dasa- apaharas, then, the yoga gets wasted.

As an example, lets take the case of a person with neecha Sani. He got cancellation of debility through exalted Sukra, in lagna Kendra. But he didn't get Sukra dasa or Sani dasa, in his life. This fisherman's life never really had any highs. During the apaharas of Sukra, he had small improvements, but never anything which provided neechabhanga or cancellation of debility. Sukra exalted people, will do well when art is practised with devotion, a very difficult pariharam to do as art practice, generally fills one up with negative ego.

this man's only son died, struck with lightning at an age of 16.
here's the son's data: april 18, 1978, thrissur dt, kerala. at 6 15 pm

with thula lagna, uccha surya, in 7th with lagnadhipa Sukra and 11th chandra, it was difficult to understand why the person died so, in sukra-sani period.

tried changing time of birth to 6: 01 pm and the lagna change to kannya, made things clearer.
ayanamsas...sidhantas...changed times...lot of things can contribute to the confusion..
may the new students gain something from this...
