3.0 General Observations
Humanity is divided into 3 main divisions, viz., masculine, feminine and eunuch.
There are any number of sub-divisions among them and the phenomena of
potency or vitality among the above three classes are remarkable. There are men
with perfect masculine development, but almost without powers of erection or
penetration. There are some women who have hardly any sexual excitements and
desire for copulation. They evade or reject sexual offers and applications. On the
other hand, there are Napumsakas or eunuchs who have strong sexual excitements,
and desires, but without suitable organs for such functions. Again there are men
and women, who have tremendous sexual energy and who are not satisfied with
ordinary sexual embraces and
seek gratification even in unnatural ways. Some men and women have no
inclination for sexual congress. There are some who have the development of the
masculine and feminine organs in a mild form, and there are a who have these two
organs in good perfection, so much so that as females they have regular menses
and at the same time as males, they have enjoyment with other females. Cases,
where such beings having fully developed male and female organs in one and the
same person, have been brought to notice both by medical practitioners and also
by the general public at different times.
But, whether such Ardha Nariswaras both man and woman together developed in
one and the same body, have ever become pregnant and brought forth issues, has
not been recorded. There are some more peculiar phenomena among human
beings, which deserve special mention here. While we were about 16 years old, a
man was introduced to us by our elder paternal uncle Venkatesayya who was
Sheristedar at Chickballapur near Bangalore as Obalachari, who had been
Obalamma before. The facts were these. He was born as a girl in a poor but
respectable Brahmin family, and was married in his 9th year to a Brahmin youth of
twenty. Till then the development of all organs were strictly feminine, otherwise 5
there could not have been a marriage of a girl to a young man. But from her 12th
year, the male organ began to develop and the feminine organ began to close up.
At 16 Obalamma became Obalachari with all the full development of male organs
and signs and as the phenomenon was strange, a few elders joined together in a
meeting; examined Obalamma, found in her no trace of feminine sexual organ, but
a fully developed masculine organ; the marriage was cancelled and Obalachari
married a girl and had several children from her.
One of his sons became an Amildar in the Mysore service, and there are now some
grand children of Obalachari formerly Obalamma. We could not believe such a
story but not only our uncle vouched for the truth of this, but Obalachari himself
confirmed the same. Our uncle had gone to the marriage of Obalamma first and
then again to his marriage when he became Obalachari. The history written by an
Androgyne and published by the Medico Legal Journal confirms such instances.
Only the other day a bull was brought to us by some of these Gangareddi players
which had the full development of the male and the female organs with one halfsized leg sticking above the female organ. The fellow is making a lot of money by
exhibiting this Cow-bull in different villages. When the females had no seat in the
American Senate 50 years ago, a senator was challenged as a woman not fit to sit
in the Assembly, although he was living with a wife.
The question of his sex came up before the Senate and the medical examinations
confirmed his dual sexuality. The doctors said that he had regular menses and he
had also masculine organ by which he was enjoying a woman. He also had his
lovers. In some cases the sexual organs are well developed and pronounced; in
other cases they are illformed or imperfectly developed. All astrological writers
are agreed in attaching great importance to the phenomena of menses in a female
and elaborate rules have been framed by the ancient writers on astrology to
examine the characteristics, morality, spirituality, progress, issues and prosperity of
the girl from the time and the combination of planets when she attains her puberty.
Certain events, which are common to males and females, have to be predicted by
the Lagna and Chandra at the time of their birth.

4.0 Female Peculiarities
There are certain other events which are peculiar to females and which have to be
predicted by the Arthava Lagna or the sign that rises at the time of the first
appearance of the menses. There are two Lagnas both for men and women, viz.,
the rising sign or Janma Lagna at the time of birth and Janma Rasi or the sign
occupied by the Moon. The odd signs are called cruel and the even signs are called
mild. From the birth Lagna must be ascertained the complexion, beauty and 6
genera appearance of the woman and the 8th house from Lagna must be consulted
for her marital life and widowhood. From the 7th house from Lagna her sexual
passions, her husband's character, her fortune and her general happiness have to
be found out. The 5th house from Lagna has to be examined to find out her
pregnancy, he issues, conceptions and abortions.
If the birth or Chandra falls in even signs she will have feminine characteristics. If
they have beneficial aspects or conjunctions, the female will be beautiful, will have
ornaments, and will be respected. If the Lagna and Chandra fall in odd signs, she
will be masculine in appearance and temper, bad character sorrowful; if these two,
Lagna and Chandra, are combined with or aspected by cruel planets, her character
will be bad and sinful. In judging of these results, the astrologer has great
difficulties and has to use much discretion in predicting the results. Take some
illustrations; Kataka is Lagna with Kuja there and aspected by Sani. Lagna is even
and the girl ought to be good, but the presence of Kuja in debilitation with the
aspect of Sani will make her a whore and of bad character.
There are some women, bad in morality but otherwise respectful and agreeable in
behaviour. There are some others who are moral gems, but disrespectful and
quarrelsome in behaviour. In the above case say Chandra is also in Kanya an even
sign and is aspected by Guru or Sukra. Say Makara is Lagna and Kuja and Sani are
there. Makara is an even sign with Kuja in exaltation and Sani in his own house.
Now do the planets here give the same results as they do in Kataka? Kataka as
Lagna with Kuja and Guru, with Sani and Ravi, with Sukra and Sani, with Kuja
and Sukra, with Rahu and Ravi; with Ketu and Chandra will and must produce
certainly different results. Suppose Mesha as Lagna with Sani and Kuja, Sani and
Rahu, Sani and Guru, Sani and Chandra, and Sani and Sukra they will produce
characteristics of a different kind and the student should be very careful in his
Take Kataka as Lagna with Guru in it. He will be in exaltation, and if he has no
evil aspects he will produce a woman of great majesty, excellent character, virtuous
behaviour and generous disposition. Suppose Makara is Lagna. Here both Kataka
and Makara are even signs and in both we have Guru the most beneficial among
the planets. But in Makara, Guru is debilitated and as such the woman cannot be
one of exceptional character. There is great difference in the signs themselves.
Kataka is a beneficial sign and when the Moon is full, it will be quite auspicious.
But when the Moon is weak as in Amavasya, the sign will not be so powerful.
Makara is an evil sign by nature and Guru there is bad both because Makara is an
evil sign and also because Guru is in debilitation.
Suppose Thula becomes Lagna with Sani in it and Mesha becomes Lagna with Sani
in it. The difference in the character and behaviour of the girl will be very great.
Say a female is adulterous and objectionable but will have the knack to treat her
husband with apparent love and consideration and thus give no room for 7
complaint as a wife, then he thinks he is happy. But if the woman is adulterous and
takes a defiant stand to her husband, admits her lovers in his presence an causes
him great discomfort and pain, the case is different. There is some difference
between the two women, although morally both are bad. Take a woman, not given
to much adultery, but attached to one bad man, and tries to poison or kill her
husband. Her character is certainly reprehensible and she cannot be classed with
the other two. Therefore, in judging of planetary influences, great discretion must
be used. Odd signs are cruel, Nararasis or masculine. Even signs are mild, feminine
or Strirasis. When both Chandra and Lagna fall in odd signs and evil planets
occupy or aspect them; the nature of the woman will be thoroughly bad. Even
among cruel or odd signs there is, and there must be great difference in producing
the evil effects. Mesha, Mithuna, Simha, Thula, Dhanus and Kumbha are odd and
cruel signs, but they are owned by malefic and benefic planets. Mesha is ruled by
Kuja, Mithuna by Budha, Simha by Ravi, Thula by Sukra; Dhanus by Guru, and
Kumbha by Sani. When the Lagna of a girl falls in any one of then or Chandra
occupies any one of these, her characteristics will differ.

Combinations for Prostitutes
The characteristics of girls all over the world are characterised by a surprising and
wonderful variety and these are accounted for by the permutations and
combinations of rasis, constellations, planets and the various states ascribed to
these in different places. Take Aries. Kuja in its first degree is not the same as
when he is in the second. Ravi in the first degree of Mesha is not the same as Ravi
in the 10th or 30th degree of that sign. Similarly every planet in every sign has
changes in nature. These wonderful varieties of planets in degrees, bhavas, and
signs account for the endless variety we find in the bad or good nature of the
people born under their influences. Vrishabha is an even sign and one owned by
Sukra. If Chandra is there she will be a good girl. Suppose she is born when the
Moon is in the 1st, 3rd, 10th or 30th degree of Vrishabha. Common sense tells us
that the Moon is not in Paramochha or in deep exaltation in the 1st, 10th or 30th
degree, but he is in deep exaltation in the 3rd degree. In the 30th degree the Moon
will be in Peedavastha or in a state of humiliation as he is in the last part of that
Therefore, students in astrology have heavy responsibilities in the art of prediction
whose success depends upon a very correct grasp of all these minute points. The
mathematical portion of astrology becomes an absolute necessity, when the planets
have to be taken in their various divisions and degrees they occupy. These delicate
demarcations should be carefully studied and specially remembered in predicting
the fortunes of girls, their personal appearance, modesty, dignity and other 8
characteristics. We shall now take the readers to Thrimsamsas whose influences
are minutely marked by writers in astrology on female horoscopy. Take Lagna or
Chandra and find out who is the most powerful of the two. Having done so, find
out where the Lagna and Chandra is in the Thrimsamsa. For ready reference, we
will give here how to find out the Thrimsamsas. Thrimsamsa means 1/30th of a sign
or one degree. Each sign, as our readers know, contains 30 degrees. In odd signs
the Thrimsamsas ere distributed thus.
Kuja 5 degrees
Sani 5 do.
Guru 8 do.
Budha 7 do.
Sukra 5 do.
Total 30 do.
Here the first five degrees are governed by Kuja; the next five degrees by Sani; the
next eight degrees by Guru; the next seven degrees by Budha; and the last five
degrees by Sukra. In the even signs the reverse holds good. Thus in an even sign:
Sukra 5 degrees
Budha 7 do.
Guru 8 do.
Sani 5 do.
Kuja 5 do.
Total 30 do.
The first five degrees are governed by Sukra; next seven by Budha; next eight by
Guru; next five by Sani; and the last five by Kuja.
Ravi and Chandra have no lordships in Thrimsamsa. If the Lagna or Chandra falls
in Mesha or Vrischika, and Kuja Thrimsamsa falls, the girl will become a prostitute
before her puberty. The girl will have sexual connections with men before she
attains her age of maturity. If she is born in Sukra Thrimsamsa, she will become
adulterous. In these two cases, the girl becomes wicked but with this difference. In
the first case, the combination is more cruel and she will have sexual connection
before she attains her age. This is considered more sinful than adultery after
puberty. In the second case, she will become adulterous after she attains her age.
In the first there is double sin and in the second there is a single sin. If she is born
in Budha Thrimsamsa, she becomes a very cunning woman.
The word used is Mayavi or one who is clever and cunning. She will be able to
conceal her evil actions by clever subterfuges. If the birth falls in Guru
Thrimsamsa, the girl will become virtuous, modest, dignified and respectful. If she 9
is born in Sani Thrimsamsa, she becomes a servant or a dependent. Service itself is
not evil except it is beggarly and may lead to sinful temptations. Many servant
women are chaste while many rich women are shameless. If Lagna or Chandra
falls in a Kanya or Mithuna and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises at the time, the woman
becomes cunning and dissimilating; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises , she becomes a
whore; if Budha Thrimsamsa rises, the woman will be possessed of excellent
qualities; if Guru Thrimsamsa rises, the girl becomes virtuous, graceful and loving;
if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she will become impotent, that is, she does not like sexual
operations. If Chandra or birth falls in Vrishabha and Thula, if Kuja Thrimsamsa
rises, she becomes a bad character; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a good
and learned woman; if Budha Thrimsamsa rises, the girl becomes skilful and
professor of music; if Guru Thrimsamsa rises, her nature will be noble, generous
and virtuous; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she marries another after her first marriage.
If Chandra or Lagna falls in Kataka, and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises, she will have a
free adulterous course; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes immoral; if Budha
Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes learned in arts and sciences; if Guru Thrimsamsa
rises, she will be blessed with admirable qualities; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she will
kill her husband. If Chandra or Lagna falls in Simha and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises,
she will have masculine qualities or becomes very talkative; if Sukra Thrimsamsa
rises, she becomes adulterous; if Budha Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes masculine
in temperament; if Guru Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a queen or the wife of a
ruler; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she will give up her caste and go to other castes. If
Lagna or Chandra falls in Dhanus or Meena, and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises, she
becomes a good lady; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes adulterous; if Budha
Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a clever artist; if Guru Thrimsamsa rises, she will
be blessed with all good qualities; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she will have little
sexual desires. Budha and Sani are impotent planets or eunuchs.
If Chandra or Lagna falls in Makara or Kumbha and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises, she
becomes a servant; if Sukra Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a wicked woman; if
Guru Thrimsamsa rises, she becomes a loving wife; if Sani Thrimsamsa rises, she
becomes fond of low class men.

Precautions in Predictions
The readers' attention is drawn to certain facts in making predictions about the
character of women. There are many delicacies which should be particularly noted.
In the above paras the expression used is "If Chandra or Lagna" falls in so and so.
Chandra and Lagna may fall in one and the same sign or each may fall in a
different house. Now let us take first Chandra in Vrishabha. He is exalted there, 10
and the sign itself is a beneficial and mild one owned by a benefic planet Sukra. A
woman born when Kuja Thrimsamsa rises in Vrishabha becomes a bad one.
If Mesha has Lagna or Chandra in it and Kuja Thrimsamsa rises, the woman will
have sexual connection before her marriage. Chandra in Mesha is not as good as
he is in Vrishabha. Mesha is a masculine sign and its lord Kuja is an evil planet.
Take Lagna or Chandra in Vrischika. Chandra here is in debilitation and if Kuja
Thrimsamsa rises, the girl will have connection before marriage. Then what is the
difference between Kuja Thrimsamsa rising when Chandra is in Mesha, Vrishabha
or Vrischika? In these three cases the girl becomes adulterous. Astrology lays
down this result. But the astrologer must make some difference even in such cases
of adultery. A woman sleeps with a rich and agreeable sort of man, she yields her
embraces to an ordinary man under passion before marriage, she will commit
adultery with a street beggar out of violent passion.
In all these cases, the girl is guilty of immoral actions. But even then there is some
difference. A woman going wrong after marriage and before marriage, after
puberty, and before puberty, with a rich man and a poor beggar cannot and will
not have the same sins or same happiness. The impulses will not be the same and
the measure of pleasure and pro fit will considerably differ. Suppose Sani is also in
Mesha with Chandra, and both occupy the Kuja Thrimsamsa. The girl will commit
adultery with a dirty and sorrowful loafer in the street. Suppose Chandra is in
Kataka with Guru there and both are in Kuja Thrimsamsa. The result predicted
there is that the girl will have plenty of lovers. But when Guru is there, she will
have respectable and gentlemanly lovers, if she commits adultery at all. But
suppose Kuja is there in his own Thrimsamsa. She will become a prostitute with a
street loafer. Immoral and sinful prostitution is there, but there are various grades
in it and all prostitutions cannot be ranked on the same level. A woman may err
once in her life, she may secretly repeat her sins occasionally and she may be a
shameless wretch of the first water in the open market.
Now the results of planetary positions in the rasis and navamsas will be given. If
Sukra and Sani occupy each other's navamsas in any rasi, if they aspect each other
in the navamsas or if Lagna falls in Vrishabha or Thula and the rising navamsa is
Kumbha, the girl becomes extremely passionate and not being satisfied by
masculine embraces, will seek sexual gratification from women who put on leather
male organs and engage her in such sinful embraces. Varieties of sins, both heinous
and light, have been recorded from time immemorial. If Sukra occupies Kuja
navamsa in any rasi or Kuja combines in Sukra navamsa, the woman becomes a
self-willed whore. If Ravi and Chandra occupy the 7th from Lagna, tile woman
commits adultery with the consent of her husband. If Kuja navamsa rises in the 7th
bhava and has the aspect of Sani, the woman will have a diseased sexual organ.
If a beneficial navamsa rises in the 7th bhava or has beneficial conjunction, she will
have a fine sexual organ and beautiful buttocks and will be loved by her husband. 11
If the 7th falls in Makara or Kumbha or those navamsas rise in the 7th bhava her
husband will be an old and stubborn fellow. If the 7th falls in Mesha or Vrischika,
or these navamsas rise in that bhava, her husband will be immoral and shorttempered. If Vrishabha or Thula falls in the 7th or those navamsas rise at the time
of birth, the woman will be handsome and blessed with amiable qualities. If the 7th
happens to be Kanya or Mithuna or those navamsas rise at birth, the husband will
be learned and intellectual. If Kataka or that navamsa rises at birth, the husband
will be immoral and sympathetic. If Dhanus or Meena rises at birth or that
navamsa, the husband will be blessed with good behaviour and will be highly
moral and virtuous. If the 7th navamsa rises in Simha or Simha becomes 7th house,
the husband will become engaged in various commercial concerns and will be

Sources of Strength and Weakness
In all these cases predictions should be based on a careful analysis of the various
sources of strength and weakness of the planets. If Mesha rises as the 7th navamsa
and is occupied by Guru, or if it rises with Sani in it or Kuja or any other planet,
the results will vary with the nature of the planet. Mesha navamsa may rise as the
7th in Thula Lagna and Vrischika navamsa will rise as the 7th in Vrishabha Lagna.
In other Lagnas, Mesha and Vrischika will not rise as the 7th navamsa. If Lagna
falls in any sign, there must 5e some sign which occupies the house and some
navamsa must rise as the 7th. Out of the 7th house and the 7th navamsa, find out
which is stronger and ascribe the results to it. But in doing so, there will be a tinge
of the 7th house as navamsa, which is weaker. Suppose Kataka falls as the 7th and
is occupied by Kuja and Kataka navamsa rises with Guru in it. Here it will be seen,
that between the 7th house and the 7th navamsa, the navamsa is stronger, and the
rasi is weaker. The results for the 7th navamsa should be predicted in preference to
7th rasi. In all these cases great patience; laborious calculations, high diligence, and
excellent analysing power should be brought to bear on the subject, in order to
arrive at correct results. Haste and want of patient labour will bring the man and
this noble science to ruin and disgrace.
I shall now try and give some mixed results. If a weak evil planet occupies the 7th
house from Lagna, the woman will have no issues. If evil planets occupy the 7th
house, she becomes a widow. If evil and good planets occupy the 7th, she will
neglect the first husband and marry a second one. If Mesha, Vrischika, Makara or
Kumbha becomes Lagna combined by Chandra and Sukra, the girl becomes
adulterous along with her mother. If there are no planets in the 7th from Lagna or
Chandra, and the house is not powerful and has no beneficial conjunctions or
aspects, the husband becomes a mean and hateful fellow. If the 7th from Lagna or 12
Chandra is occupied by Sani or Budha, the husband will become impotent or
without sexual potency. If the 7th falls in a moveable sign, the husband will have
much travelling. By implications, if the 7th falls in a fixed sign, the husband will
remain at home; if the 7th falls in a double-bodied or Dwiswabhava Rasi, then the
husband will have some travelling and some rest. If the Sun is found in the 7th
unaspected by benefics, the girl will be rejected by the husband. If Mars is in the
7th with the aspect of evil planets, she will become a widow soon after marriage. If
Sani occupies the 7th with evil aspects, the woman will be unmarried. If Chandra
and Sukra are in the birth, the woman becomes mean, jealous and fond of
happiness. If Budha and Chandra occupy Lagna, she will be well skilled in music
and arts, will have good children, will be happy and prosperous. If Sukra and
Budha occupy Lagna, she will be agreeable, prosperous, well skilled in music and
fine arts. The highest pleasure for man in this world is to have an obedient,
modest, loving, virtuous, handsome, agreeable and sympathetic wife and children.
Good health is the most precious gift of Heaven for man as well as for woman.
Domestic happiness, peace of mind, prosperity dignity and fair name cannot be
conceived on a higher basis. Heavenly pleasure will be on earth with such family
members. Where the characteristics are quite the reverse, the man or the woman
need not seek another Hell.

Beneficial Aspects and Conjunctions
If beneficial planets, viz., Full Moon, well-associated Mercury, Jupiter and Venus
occupy the Lagna, she will have money, good clothes, ornaments, agreeable
temper and attractive personality, happiness and prosperity. If evil planets, the
Sun, weak Moon, badly associated Mercury, Mars, Rahu, Sani and Ketu occupy
the Lagna, she will have the opposite results, viz., disagreeable personality,
repulsive manners, poverty, short and unpleasant temper and misery. Full Moon
and well-associated Mercury are classed as benefics. But when the Moon is weak
like on a New Moon day, and Mercury with Rahu, Sani, Mars and Ketu, he is said
to be evil. Here great differences must be made in the results.
Suppose Kanya is Lagna with Budha and Sani and Meena is Lagna with them. The
results will be and must be different. In Meena, Budha is debilitated, and with
Sani, he will give bad results. In Kanya, he is exalted, and with Sani, he will give
better results. Suppose in Kanya they are joined by Guru and so also in Meena,
there will be difference in results. If Sukra joins them in Kanya or Meena, the
results will be quite different. In astrology, it is no joke to make correct
predictions, for, the13
astrologer has to remember all such details, analyse them as best as he could,
balance the conflicting evidence, combine theory and practice, use common sense
and intelligence, study the environments of the parties, consider the local, the
political, the social and the religious conditions and then, after summarising all
these, draw reasonable conclusions and make predictions with care and caution.
If Lagna is occupied by Chandra, Budha and Sukra or by Budha, Guru and Sukra,
she will have excellent character, be happy, learned, intelligent, polite, attractive
and command the services of servants. If Chandra and Sukra are in Lagna, she will
be irritable, fond of happiness and have many gold ornaments. If Lagna has Budha
or Guru and Sukra, she will be skilful in arts, fond of happiness and attractive. If
Budha and Chandra are in Lagna, she will be happy and blessed with children. If
Guru occupies Lagna, she will be very wealthy and will have sons and
grandchildren. If Kanya or Mithuna rises as Lagna and Chandra and Sukra are
there, she will be fond of happiness, will have a tendency to quarrel with her
husband and will have free movements. The latter means, I suppose, she will be
free with other men. Quarrels are not happy signs of domestic felicity. If Budha,
Guru and Sukra are powerless, if Sani has middle strength and Ravi, Chandra and
Kuja are powerful and the Lagna falls in an odd sign, the girt will be masculine in
temperament and behaviour, will be free in her sexual intercourse, and will
become a reputed woman. When a woman is free in her sexual matters, I am afraid
she will be rightly entitled to become notorious rather than reputed.
Reputation always signifies right conduct and notoriety objectionable behaviour.
Good reputation can never be the property of women, free in sexual matters. It is
only a shameless woman who indulges in promiscuous intercourse. If Lagna falls in
an even sign, the powerful Guru, Budha or Sukra joins with Chandra in any sign,
she will have religious wisdom and philosophical knowledge, insight into many
sciences and will become famous. if Lagna or Chandra is betwixt powerful evil
planets, she will have all her wants supplied by her parents and she will cause
extinction of her father-in-law’s house. If two planets are in the 6th and there is
one malefic and one benefic in Lagna, the girl will become a Vishakanya. If the
lunar day is 7th failing on Tuesday and Satabhisha ruling, or if the lunar day is 12th
falling on
Sunday, ruled by Krittika, the girl becomes a Vishakanya. If Dwadasi or 12th lunar
day, Satabhisha and Sunday join together or if Saptami or 7th lunar day, Visakha
and Tuesday combine, the girl becomes a Vishakanya. If Lagna and Chandra fall
in moveable signs, aspected by feminine planets and evil planets occupy kendras,
the girl will have two husbands.
If Sani and Chandra occupy a moveable sign aspected by Sukra, her husband will
be fond of other women, fickle-minded and born of adultery. This means that his
mother is immoral and he is not the son of her reputed or registered father. If Sani
occupies an even sign and the 7th is occupied or aspected by a benefic, her 14
husband will be respected by the governing bodies and will be agreeable and
happy. If Chandra and Sukra occupy the 7th, the husband will be old.
If the 7th is occupied by evil planets, she will become a widow early in life. If Ravi
occupies the 7th aspected by an unfriendly planet, she will be neglected by her
husband. If Kuja occupies the 7th and has the aspect of an unfriendly planet, she
will become a widow in early life. If Sani occupies the 7th with unfriendly aspect,
she becomes a young widow and will live as a widow till old age. If the 7th is
occupied by good and evil planets, she will become adulterous. If the 7th is an evil
sign and is occupied by Sani and Kuja, she becomes a widow, very early in life. If
Kuja with an evil planet joins the 12th or the 8th and Lagna is occupied by Rahu,
she will become a widow and immoral. If Lagna is occupied by Ravi or Kuja, she
becomes poor. If Ravi, Kuja and Rahu occupy Lagna, she becomes a widow and
immoral. If these combine with Sukra, she will be fond of her husband. There are
extraordinary women who although they become widows at a very early age,
preserve their chastity and command the highest respect from alt classes of people.
They are domestic gems.
If there is an evil planet in the 8th from Lagna and when the subperiod of the lord
of the navamsa occupied by that planet occurs after the marriage, her widowhood
should be predicted. If the 2nd is occupied by benefics and the 8th by malefics, she
will die before her husband. Such a death is coveted by all good women and that
state or marital life goes under the name Sumangali. If evil planets occupy the 8th,
the woman becomes a widow. If there is a malefic in the 8th and a benefic occupies
Kumbha, she dies before her husband. If Lagna has evil and good planets and the
second has benefics, her death occurs before her husband. If Lagna falls in Simha,
Vrishabha or Vrischika, she will have few issues. If malefics occupy the 7th and the
9th houses, she will become a Sanyasin or one who renounces the world. If Kanya,
Vrischika, Vrishabha or Simha joins Chandra or if the 6th is occupied by benefics
or has their aspects, she will have few children. If Lagna is joined by Sani and Kuja
or by Chandra and Sukra, and the 5th is aspected or occupied by malefics, she
becomes barren.
If birth falls in Mesha, Vrischika, Makara or Kumbha and is aspected by evil
planets, she becomes barren, If Ravi and Sani occupy the 8th or if any one of them
occupies his own house other than Lagna, the woman becomes barren. If Guru and
Sukra are similarly situated, she will have dead children. If Kuja joins with such
Sukra. and Guru, she will have many abortions. If Kuja occupies the 7th and has
the aspect of Sani, she will have abortions. If Sani occupies the 7th possessing the
aspect of Kuja, the issues will be sickly. If Rahu and Ravi occupy the 7th, she will
have dead children. If Chandra and Budha are in the 7th, she will have female
children. If Guru and Sukra occupy the 5th, she will have many sons and
daughters, prosperous, with good qualities, faithful and loving to husband and will
do many charitable deeds. These results may be predicted for females, at the time
of birth, at the time of marriage, at time when marriages are settled, at the time of 15
query or questions and at the time of puberty. These results of female horoscopy
have been selected from the Vriddha Yavana and other important works on
female horoscopy. Who are Yavanas and where did they come from? What works
have they written and when did they flourish? Vriddha Yavanas are the older
ones. Yavanas are later emigration (see my History of Vijayanagar).

Characteristics of the 12 Rasis
I will now give the description and characteristics of girls born in the 12 different
rasis and these are to be taken with considerable modifications. For example, if a
girl is born in Mesha without any planet or with Ravi, Chandra, Kuja, Budha,
Guru, Sukra, Sani, Rahu or Ketu in all these ten cases the results will be
necessarily different. This should be particularly borne in mind. But there will also
be the general influences of the Rasi itself which will be strongly or weakly marked
according to the strength or weakness of the Rasi itself, its lord and the planets
who are there and who aspect it. Kuja in Mesha will be its lord. Ravi in Mesha will
have exaltation, Chandra will be in a friendly house. Budha will be emerging from
debilitation and in an unfriendly sign. Guru will be in a friendly sign. Sukra will be
in an enemy's use. Sani will be debilitated. Rahu will be powerful. Ketu will be
weak. Therefore, the results of a girl born in Mesha vary according to the strength
and weakness of these planets and rasis. Then again we have double, triple,
quadruple, multiple, sextile and separate combinations, each of which has its own
strength and weakness. Therefore, when we give the results for Mesha, Vrishabha
and so forth, the astrologer must be very careful in making his predictions.
1. A girl, who is born in Mesha, will be truthful, cruel, phlegmatic, quarrelsome
and fond of relations.
2. A woman, born in Vrishabha, will be of cultivation, agreeable, polite manners,
obey her husband, skilled in arts and fond of relations.
3. One, who is born in Mithuna, will use harsh language, passionate, bad character,
cruel temper, windy and phlegmatic complaints and a spendthrift.
4. One, born in Kataka, will have many issues, handsome, wealthy, righteous,
fondness for relations, pious, polite, attractive and happy.
5. One, who is born. in Simha; will have anger, phlegmatic, fond of quarrels and
6. One, who is born in Kanya, will have happiness, politeness, agreeable temper,
faithful servants, fond of charitable deeds, virtuous, and skilful in arts.
7. One, who is born in Thula, steadiness, laziness, few friends, proud, heart-burn,
avaricious and sinful;
8. One, born in Vrischika, will be handsome delightful, meritorious, virtuous, good
Character and truthful.
9. One, born in Dhanus, good mind, masculine deeds, amenable to kindness, cruel,
thinking ill of others and unkind.
10. One, born in Makara will be prosperous, truthful, fond of visiting holy places,
without enemies , engaged in important work, good reputation, character and
many children.
11. One, who is born in Kumbha, powerful from birth, bloody disease, fond of
religious men, pure-minded, expensive, fond of merit and grateful.
12. One, born in Meena, will have children and grand children, fond of husband,
respected by relations and friends, beautiful eyes and hairs, fond of worship,
kindness and respect to elders.
In judging of these characteristics, the reader has to be careful. When the sign is
powerful, well occupied, beneficially aspected and when its lord has good
conjunctions and aspects then the characteristics sketched above will appear in
full. But when the sign is weak and has evil conjunctions and aspects, its lord is not
powerful, then the results can only have general traces and not in full. One or two
examples will suffice to explain what I mean.
Take Kataka. If it is occupied by Kuja, if its lord Moon is both New Moon and
debilitated in Vrischika, then there will be faint traces of the characteristics
represented by Kataka. But if Guru is there and Chandra is full and exalted, then
all the characteristics given for Cancer will be prominently visible. The task of an
astrologer, if he wants to be honest and faithful to this science, is not only taxing
but also laborious. Sciences, whatever they may be, are not for lazy fools or
ignorant brains. Devotion, intelligence, patience and industry are wanted.
Results to the occupation of Chandra in the different Rasis:
1. When Chandra is in Mesha - fond of work, much skill, handsome person, leader,
fond of husband and devoted to elders and Gurus.
2. Chandra in Vrishabha - good temper, tact, education, fond of fine arts, visiting
holy places, blessed with children and grandchildren, acquisition of wealth and 17
devotion to husband.
3. Chandra in Mithuna - well developed, handsome body, good character, profits
from various engagements, good intelligence, helpful of others, charming eyes.
4. Chandra in Kataka - sickly, respected among relations, dignified, conquest over
enemies, devotion to Gods and priests.
5. Chandra in Simha - leader among her class, good temper, fond of flesh, blessed
with ornaments and clothes, engaged in large speculations, good marital life and
handsome features.
6. Chandra in Kanya - many cattle, virtue, great wealth, over enemies, patience
and righteous conduct.
7. Chandra in Thula - fond of religious rites, sympathetic and loving, virtuous, good
children, high social position and little sexual passion.
8. Chandra in Vrischika - concealing sins, steady, skilful work, agreeable. #o elders,
great wealth and unsympathetic.
9. Chandra in Dhanus - fond of religious rights, love for charities, sympathy,
musical taste, love for fellow creatures, agreeable, attainment in desires, female
issues and polite manners.
10. Chandra in Makara - terrible teeth, solar worship, agreeable, varied learning,
truthful, handsome body, conquest over passions and enemies, and righteous.
11. Chandra in Kumbha - rounded body, attractive face, charitable, issues, wealth,
good actions, reputation and self-respect.
12. Chandra in Meena - many male issues, charitable, good character, controlling
passions, skilful in arts, great modesty, careful about reputation and agreeable.
When Chandra is in any particular sign, not aspected or conjoined by good or evil
planets and the lord of the sign is powerful as has already been stated, then the
characteristics detailed for that sign will be prominently seen. But when
Conjunctions and aspects present are conflicting then there will be traces of these
results. We say a girl is handsome. In beauty there are any number of varieties and
the judgements on beauty also vary according to the tastes of nations, manners,
customs, social functions and aesthetic development. Habit also has a great deal to
do with our tastes and judgements. The darkest Negro, the Hotentat, the
American, the Indian, the aboriginals of India, the European and the Asiatic
nations all have their own ideas of beauty.18
It will be seen that the thirty degrees of any sign will not exercise the same
influences and it stands to ordinary common sense to think so. A man walks thirty
miles. The road, the scenery, the nature of the soils, the varied phenomena on the
way, the climatic conditions, the presence or absence of watery surfaces, hills,
valleys, dales, mountains, vegetation, animals, birds, beasts, reptiles, the human
habitations, their varied features, his own physical and mental changes, all these
and many more necessarily change his mind, and make him miserable or
pleasurable, according to these various influences. Similarly when a planet enters
Mesha he will be affected in the 30 degrees with various sources of beneficial and
malefic influences. Say the Sun enters Mesha in the 1st degree. We will explain the
various influences in our colloquial language. First, he enters a friendly house;
second, he enters his sign of exaltation; third, he enters his own Hora; fourth, he
enters Kuja
Drekkana; fifth, he enters Kuja Navamsa; sixth, he enters Kuja Dwadasamsa; and
seventh, he enters Kuja Thrimsamsa, we shall not go into further minor
subdivisions. Here we have to take that Ravi is alone there, unaspected and
uncombined and within respectable distances from other planets. Here again he
travels in two and quarter stars in each sign which have their own peculiar
influences. Aswini extends over 13 1/3 degrees and it does not exercise the same
influence all through those degrees. The tenth degree or the end of the 3rd quarter
is his deep exaltation where he is said to give the highest beneficial influence.
Till the 10th degree he is in the ascent and reaches the highest point in the 10th
degree. From the 11th degree he is said to be in the descent, and gradually loses his
powers. When he reaches the 30th degree he loses his power of exaltation and
when he enters the 1st degree of Vrishabha, he comes to an unfriendly territory.
From the 13 1/3 degree to the 26 2/3 degree of Mesha, he will be in Bharani which
is quite different in nature, in its results from those of Aswini. Bharani has Yama
as its Deity and has its influence. From the 262/3 degree till he passes the 30th
degree or the end of the first quarter of Krittika he travels in a star governed by
Agni. Bharani is governed by Yama or the dread judge who punishes all wicked
people after their death. These are not easy lessons which could be learnt by casual
glances. They require deep, intelligent and patient study.

Bhava Phala or the Significations of the Planets in the Twelve Houses21
Here, the results of the various planets occupying the different Bhavas are
sketched out and the astrologer will see how each house and its significations are
affected and modified. The balancing of evidence and pronouncing of correct
judgement are not such great difficulties to a judge as the balancing of the results
of the occupations of the planets in the different houses and making correct
predictions for an astrologer. Take Mesha. First there are the influences of the
sign. Then we have the Hora, Drekkana, Navamsa, Dwadasamsa, Thrimsamsa, the
stellar, and the planetary influences. All these and the influences of combinations,
aspects, debilitations, exaltations, retrogression, acceleration, friendly and
unfriendly houses, Moolathrikonas and other particulars will have to be taken into
consideration. Any brain, however intelligent it may be, reels back at the
stupendous labour which lies before it in astrological calculations. It is surprising
how educated people, themselves discontented with their heavy incomes, can
make up their minds to overlook the dignity of the herculean labour and offer to
the really learned astrologers small sums often even less than humble wages of a
street cooly. Such, however, is the logic of the learned and they have the audacity
to find fault with the astrologers for false predictions. This is something like jeering
at an Engineer for not building a tank bund properly, when he is paid ten rupees
for a work, which really costs a thousand. What would be his reply readers can
Ravi in 1 - produces hot body, heat diseases, bad temper, leanness, ingratitude,

In all these cases, the planet alone should not be consulted for results. Even here,
there are great differences. If Mesha is Lagna and Ravi is there and if Thula is
Lagna and Ravi occupies it there will be great difference in results. In one he is
exalted and in the other he has debilitation. Similarly, if Chandra occupies
Vrishabha as Lagna and Vrischika as Lagna, the results will be different. The
digestive organs of a healthy man and his organs, when he is seriously sick, will
produce different results.

been explained from the constellations, lunar influences, sign peculiarities and
influences of planets in the different Bhavas. These are specially applicable to
females. In astrology as well as in other sciences right judgement is a great factor
and weighing of evidence is important. Great patience and labour are wanted.
Chandra enters Mesha twelve times a year. Each month has its own peculiar
influence, and the various angles he forms both with reference to himself and also
for other planets are factors which have to be taken into consideration in
delineating the character of women. So also for other planets.

11.0 CHAPTER X28
Rajayogas or Auspicious Combinations
1. If Guru is in Lagna, if Chandra is in 7th or in his own vargas, and Sukra is in
10th, the woman will become the wife of a king or a ruler, even if she is born in a
poor family and inferior caste. Here it means that although a girl may be born in
humble circumstances and belong to a lower caste than that of the ruler, she will
become his wife. Beauty is no doubt a powerful weapon for women to conquer
men, but sometimes love is blind, and a woman of ordinary complexion and beauty
will be courted by a ruler, under what we may call lucky and other subtle
influences. A fair woman sometimes courts and enjoys a dark and repulsive man
and a fair man falls in desperate love with a dirty and ugly looking wench. Why
and wherefore nobody can satisfactorily explain. Lovers do not see the petty follies
they commit.
2. If Guru has all the good sources of Shadvargas and occupies 3, 4. 5, 7, 8, 9, or 10
and has the powerful aspect of Chandra, the woman will be blessed with plenty of
wealth and will become the wife of a Raja. Luxuries dependent on the royal
position will be with her. Morality has been specially mentioned when they have
any. Royal females have greater temptations to fall into immoral channels.
3. If benefics occupy the kendras or if they are in Lagna and if the 7th falls in a
Nara Rasi or signs like Mithuna, Kanya, Thula, the first half of Dhanus or
Kumbha, occupied by evil planets the girl will have great wealth, will have patient
and agreeable temper, and the conquered enemies will serve upon her as servants.
This means she will have great political power.
4. If the 11th is occupied by Chandra and the 7th is occupied by Sukra and Budha
and possesses the aspect of Guru, she will become the bride of a ruler and will
have all. the paraphernalia of royalty surrounding her.
5. If Kanya becomes Lagna with Budha in it, and Guru is found located in the 11th,
i.e., Kataka, in exaltation, she will become a queen and will command great respect
and power. Here two planets, Budha and Guru, are in exaltation and they produce
6. If Sukra occupies Lagna, Budha is in the 3rd and the powerful Guru possessed
of Shadvarga strength is located in the 4th, the girl will marry a king and will have
all royal enjoyments.
7. If one of the Sirshodaya Rasis becomes the 7th with the Full-Moon there, and if
there are no evil planets in the four kendras the girl will become the wife of a ruler,
will have many elephants, horses and conveyances, will be a loving wife to her
husband and will be able to conquer all her enemies.
8. If at the time of birth there are three planets who have good Shadvargas, she will 29
become the wife of a Raja. If four planets are so well situated with good
Shadvargas, she will become the wife of a great emperor. If five planets have
completely auspicious Shadvargas, she will become the wife of a very great en
emperor who has command over the three worlds and will travel in Vimanas.
The Sirshodaya Rasis mentioned in No. 7 are Mithuna, Simha, Kanya, Thula,
Vrischika and Kumbha. Sovereignty over three worlds-Swarga, Martya and Patalahas been casually mentioned in the Puranas, but from the Pandavas downwards we
have no historical evidence to show that any king has had jurisdiction over the
three worlds. Arjuna went to Swarga and fought there. Vikramaditya went into
Indraloka and got his valuable Throne with 35 steps guarded by 32 celestial
Nymphs to whom are ascribed 32 beautiful, interesting and highly romantic stories,
which form the theme of a separate book, called Dwathrimsat Sala Bhanjika
Vimana is derived from the Sanskrit Vi excessive or high and Mana measure of
speed and refers to Aeroplanes and all those machines which could travel in the
aerial regions (see Verse 48,1st Kanda, Amara). Vyoni means aerial regions and
that which can fly there is a Vimana. Those cars which contain Devatas are
Vimanas. Vina Pakshina Manamuhamanam Gamanay Asyatiha, or that which
when flying resembles a winged bird. Swarga is inhabited by Devatas, headed by
Indra. Martya is inhabited by human beings who are subjected to Mri - to die or
death. Patala is inhabited by the Nagas or serpent like beings headed by Adisesha.
Royal power is no doubt very covetable and desirable. When people have got
steady heads and pure minds, they can do a great deal of good. But when they
have weak or impulsive temperaments they will plunge themselves into the vortex
of sexual and sensual pleasures, and become physically as well as morally ruined.
9. If Kumbha becomes Lagna with Poorna Chandra in the fourth or Vrishabha,
aspected by Guru, she will become the principal queen of a ruler, will have many
children and will have conquest over her enemies. Generally rulers are not very
scrupulous about the moral atmosphere. They are often wicked and mischievous.
10. If Budha joins Kanya or Mithuna and aspected by Guru with auspicious
Shadvargas and the 4th has the aspect of Sukra, the girl will marry a Maharaja. The
Shadvargas are:
1. Lagna or Birth or Ascendant.
2. Hora or half of a Rasi or sign.
3. Drekkana or one-third of a sign.
4. Navamsa or one-ninth division of a Rasi.
5. Dwadasamsa or one-twelfth of a zodiacal sign.
6. Thrimsamsa or one-thirtieth division of a sign.
This corresponds to one degree in the zodiacal circle.30
These six divisions constitute Shadvargas and when all are good, the planet is
powerful. Other works mention Shodasavargas or 16 divisions and they are:
1. Lagna 09. Panchadasamsa
2. Hora 10. Shodasamsa
3. Drekkana 11. Thrimsamsa.
4. Panchamsa 12. Ekadasamsa
5. Saptamsa 13. Shashtamsa
6. Navamsa 14. Ashtamsa
7. Dwadasamsa 15. Chaturthamsa
8. Trayodasamsa. 16. Shashtiamsa
(See my notes in the Translation of Sarvarthachintamani, 5 to 19. See also A
Manual of Hindu Astrology by B. V. Raman).
The arrangement of these Amsas differs considerably and I refer my readers to
other standard works for this information.
11. If Kuja occupies 3 or 6 and Sani with auspicious Shadvargas joins 11 and Guru
aspects Lagna which should fall in a fixed sign, the woman will become a queen.
12. If Mithuna becomes Lagna with Full-Moon; Sun in the 11th Mesha in
exaltation, and Mercury in. Meena in the 10th, the woman becomes a highly
respected queen, very virtuous and faithful to husband. There are any number of
women in the line of queens and aristocrats. Many of them are shielded and
protected by their political and financial power. As regards their moral character
the less we say about it, the better it would be for them. The street prostitutes
often compare with some them favourably and appear much better. Such is the
constitution of human society. These Rajayogas give power, money and luxuries
afforde by them. But moral and spiritual considerations are different and these
have generally fewer chances of access to the royal palaces than the vices, which
not only have better access, but are fondled with great care and loved by the
aristocrats. Nemesis deals out its iron hand, catches them in its grip and gives them
plenty of diseases and a wonderful variety of sorrows. Palaces are nobly built,
richly furnished and present very inviting appearances to outlookers, but when one
enters into their precincts, the rotten smell of diseases, social scandals, immoral
impulses and horrid forms of vicious and unrighteous deeds hail the outsider and
make him reflect that his humble home is far better than the guilded
compartments, enclosing rotten human beings. In the above Rajayogas the
virtuous conduct of the women is specially mentioned so that the holy may be
distinguished from the unholy, and the healthy from the rotten.
13. If the Sun, with all the auspicious Shadvargas, occupies the 3rd and Saturn is
placed in the 6th, woman becomes the wife of a ruler, will be fond of righteous
conduct and will be loving her husband and beloved by him.
14. If the Sun occupies Mesha his sign of exaltation with all the auspicious
Shadvargas, aspected or conjoined by benefics and the birth falls in a fixed sign , 31
the girl will become a queen and will command many elephants, horses and
15. If Lagna falls in Kanya with Budha combined there, Guru in the 11 th, Sukra in
the 2nd and Poorna Chandra in the 10th, she will be an empress. She will be
charitable, generous, blessed with sympathetic speech, virtuous and helpful to the
poor and the distressed. She will be a grand woman in every way. She will
command the respect of all and will have great reputation as a benevolent and
religious lady.
