Music. Welcome you all to the Saptharishi Astrology You tube Channel. Today’s session is astrology related basic question and answers. And today we are going to meet again Shri Sunil Pandey sir, so lets welcome him. Namaskaram Sunil Pandey Sir. How are you sir? SP: Namaskar, thank you very much. Sir i’ll take first question. First question is what is the difference between rising sign and moon sign. Like if we want to understand a person what do we need to know, is it his rising sign or moon sign? Same way what’s difference between ascendant star and moon star? Sure, this is a very good question. We look signs from moon. Moon stays 2 1/2 days in each sign, which ever sign he is in at the time of birth that becomes persons moon sign. But for rising sign we take the sign which is rising on eastern horizon at the time of birth. It is known as rising sign or lagna or ascendant. Moon travels faster over few stars and over few stars his transits wouldl be very slow. That is why few sings are shorter than 2 two hours and few are longer than 2 hours. We will look persons entire life through his rising sign. but here i wish to share what is the main difference between ascendant star and moon star and which one is more stronger. I should tell you moon star is very important. Because most of the dasa’s, antar dasa, pratantar dasas, yogini dasa and chara dasa are calculated based on moon star as per Shri Parashara Muni ji. However strong is one’s chart but if current dasa is not good enough then its not going to give good results. Most of the life events happen based on moon star, that is why moon star is very very important in a chart. Yes ascendant star also important but got little less importance than moon star. One more thing if one wish to know a person and his friendships like for example Taurus, they make very great friendships with Scorpio people apart from other signs because they are in 1-7 relationship. Aries people can easily make friendships with Libra people. 1-7 friendship is a good of all friendships. First best combination for friendships is 1-7 relationship. After that 5th and 9th sings from ascendant becomes natural friends. For example if someone’s moon sign is Pieces they make good friendships with Cancer and Scorpio people because they are in 1,5,9 access to each other. But for Pisces sign first best friendship is with Virgo because they are in 1-7 access. Sir, you gave us very important information. And also ascendant sign has its own significance. Because… Please continue sir. We can make out persons life from ascendant. That is why our rushi’s consider 3 major ascendants rising sign, moon sign and sun sign. To know about a person completely by combining all these 3 ascendants in a chart is known as Sudarshana Chakra Method. We can know the strength and luck of a chart by its rising sign. Transits we know better from moon sign and from sun aslo we make few predictions. By mixing all these 3 ascendant sings we can make complete predictions of a horoscope, but birth ascendant and moon sign have more say in it. SP: Please ask me if you have any doubts. Sir, actually you cleared all my doubts. Like at early stage of making new friends we cannot ask for their horoscopes directly. With someone we feel like more connected and with some we don’t feel the same way. You made it very simply and clear by bringing this 1-7 relationship concept. It will be very useful for the viewers. Thanks for the technique sir. Now i’ll take second question. Second question is, What is angark yoga (Mars+ Rahu conjunction), what are the effects of this conjunction in 10th house? Angarak yog happens when mars and rahu conjuncts in the same sign. By name itself we can make out its something related to fire, as we all know mars represents fire. As per lal kitab it is believed that if we take rahu as elephant then mars becomes its controller. I often see in this yoga Mars becomes more stronger and rahu’s impact on mars would be very minimal. This conjunction might make the person prone to anger. Because of that the person himself ruins his life. That is why these people should keep peace all the times. Similarly Sun and Mars combination in 10th house will almost give the same result. Specially in 10th house this conjunctions gains more strength and blesses native with fame, long life, and spacial recognition among peers. To obtain best results out of this conjunction one should not to get angry or always should keep his anger under control as mars tend to trigger anger easily. Apart from this one can also recite Hanuman Chalisa and also giving water (arghya) to lord Surya also proven beneficial. Thank you so much sir. Our next question is any planet transiting through its natal position what kind of results can be expected. Like for example Saturn is in Sagittarius in birth chart and if transit Saturn also passing through Sagittarius what major effects will take place in natives life. Yes. every planet transiting through its natal position will trigger major events for good but effects may vary from planet to planet. As per my experience when Sun is transiting through its natal position, also 2,12 rasis from its natal position will always give very good results. But it also depends on other factors like current dasa, antardasa and other aspects on Sun. If everything well supported then it can bring good changes in one’s life in these transits. But if moon transits through its natal positions it gives medium results. Even mars gives normal results in natal transits. Not only mars all other planets gives medium result while transiting through their natal position except Sun. One more thing i noticed Jupiter and Venus also gives good result in their natal transits. Saturn gives nominal results. Rahu and ketu natal transits may give teeth problems to the native. Tooth troubles. Like rahu is currently transiting through Cancer Sir there is break in your voice. Only few planets gives good results while transiting through their natal position rest all give medium results. Ok sir. so any transit planet gives result based on its karakatwa, right sir? SP: Yes that is partially true but we also need to consider the other facts. But in general Sun, Jupiter, Venus gives good results rest all planets give medium results. One more thing i would like to mention. Suppose as per english calendar some one born on 15th January and when ever sun transits through same month and same sign that is considered very auspicious transit for the native. On that birth day if native performs 7000 vedic mantra japa of lord surya and after that homa gives very auspicious result for the entire year. Becaue sun is a good planet and he gives very good results in his natal position. Thank you sir, in fact i was going to ask you the same question for viewers sake. I’m also going to ask you the same question sir how to get maximum benefit out this transit. Its a very rare and auspicious moment of the year in natives life so how could one get most out of that transit. Our audience might have got the same question. You answered it very well sir. Yes, every year sun transits in the same sign, amsa and kala on one’s birth date. Based on that entire years results will be calculated. One shouldn’t miss such auspicious occurrence. Sir for our audience sake can you repeat the remedy one more time? As per one’s English calendar birth date sun will be transiting through natives natal sun position. To get most beneficial results out of this auspicious transit native should be performing vedic japa for sun or homa for sun or can also donate as per his /her capacity. Same way as per birth thithi moon will be transiting through his natal position.I also have a remedy for this transit. After doing navagraha shanti pooja native should do minimum 1000 times Mahamrutyunyaja japa and after that should do homa with neem sticks soaked in ghee. It gives native wealth and happiness for the whole year. Its very good remedy sir. All these are necessary because sun and moon are most important planets in one’s life. Monthly transit of the moon will also happen but yearly transit of the moon is considered very auspicious and one should perform all these pooja and homa on one’s birthdate and birth thithi both to get good results from both Sun and Moon. Very true sir. And also as we all know Sun is karaka for Father and Moon is for mother for them also its beneficial. Isn’t it sir? Yes its beneficial for them if all are staying together. Whole family will benefit out of this. I also want to share one more good remedy . Holi festival is coming. On Holi day when people perform holika dahan one should do 7000 japa of vedic surya mantra and homa along with his entire family which gives very auspicious results. Thank you very much sir. Now i’ll my next question. Me next question is how do we know about our second child from a chart? We tend to know about first child easily by calculations but how can we derive results for the second born. What are the yogas we should look at, please tell us sir. See every one know’s for children we see 5th house and children significator is Jupiter. 5th house represents over all kids. From 5th house alone we know how many kids are going to born and their characteristics. Like from our ascendant 3rd house will tell us about our younger siblings. Same way from 5th house we see the first child and from 3rd house to 5th (which is 7th) house represents the second child. The planet in the 7th house and aspects on the 7th house will tell us all about second child. As 5th house is the main house for kids we see the results combining both 5th and 7th in our calculations to determine the characteristics of second child. Okay sir. Now my next question is people who resides in foreign countries when will they come back to homeland? What are the combinations that bring them back to their motherland? And also please tell us what are the other combinations that will not allow them to come back? Please tell us about both combinations. See there are two different scenarios. One is a temporary visit to mother land and second one is permanent stay back at home land. Can you tell me which one you wish to know about? Sir i wish to know about both the scenarios. Some people like to visit once in a year what is the combination that supports. And few people who wish to come back permanently what would be the combination for that. Okay i understand your question. First we see the combination for foreign stay. It is believed that staying in foreign lands is inauspicious. 4th house is for house and home stay any malefic like rahu or ketu or Saturn sitting there can make the native stay away from home or homeland. Away also means foreign land. If 4th lord has got any connections with 12th house will give native foreign stay or if 9th lord is in connection with 12th house person will get lucky after he moves to a foreign (distant) land. Many times 7th lord and 3rd lord in connection with 12 house or 4th house or 8th house can also leads to foreign stay. First of all we look at how many days native is going to stay at foreign land. Suppose if 9th house or 4th house lords is in 12th house or in any relation with 12th house native might settle in foreign land itself. For them a short visit to homeland is possible when planets like Jupiter or venus transiting through 4th, 9th, 3rd or 7th house. Or currently running dasa or antardasa is good then also short trip to homeland is possible because coming back to homeland is considered good. If the planet combinations or not very strong for foreign stay and 12th lord dasa or 9th lord dasa is currently running they go to abroad for 1 or 2 years. Once the dasa is over or Jupiter transiting through 12th house then native cannot stay in foreign land which brings them back to homeland. Okay, Which means for any ascendant 4th lord connection with 3rd, 9th,7th or 12th house can also give these results. Yes most of the times i see this yoga is strongly formed when 4th lord is in 12th house. 4th lord in 8th will likely give less results same as 4th lord in 7th or 3rd house. For a longer stay in foreign lands there must be combination like 12th lord in 6th house.This combination can also give native a home in abroad. If 12th or 4th or 6th house is severely afflicted then person must go far from home or homeland. We also look at 2nd house which represents close family. If it is afflicted or planets like rahu or saturn in 2nd house may take person to foreign land, but effects are little less. Okay. Planets like mars or saturn in 4th house certainly create this yoga,is that what you mean sir? They can give this yoga but 12th house connection must be there. Ascendant lord in 12 house or 12th lord in Ascendant native defiantly travels to foreign land. I’ve also seen if 9th lord in 12th house or 12rd lord in 9th house can give this yoga. Such native luck will raise only after going to foreign land. I suppose, based on which house is making such connection that house signification might be one of the reason for travel. Suppose if 7th house is involved then spouse must be the reason. Quiet possible. Sir, our next question is how do we see transits (gochara)? Is it from moon or is it from ascendant or is it from planets natal position. ‘Go’ means planet (sanskrit meaning), chaar means moment. Which means transit of planet. Moon represents mind/heart of the native. If our mind is happy we are happy. That is why we see transits from moon as per scriptures. If mind is happy that means transit is good. If mind is not happy then transit is bad. That is why we look transits from moon. Like how we see Saturn transit Sade-sathi from moon while saturn is transiting through the houses 12, 1, 2 from the natal moon. Becasue satun impacts moon which is mind. This total transit takes 71/2 years. Same way we see all planet transits from the moon itself. Its not that we don’t see transits from Ascendant. We see transits from Ascendant, Moon, Sun and also from natal position of the planet. For example we see Jupiter’s transit from his natal position. If he transits through good houses from his natal position he will give good results. If we take moon, he gives good results while transiting through 2nd, 3rd, 5th,7th, 9th and 10th from his natal position. Same way we need to look at all other planets transits from their natal position in a horoscope. So same rule applies for every planet! Its almost same for every planet. But if we see it in percentage wise mainly 75% of transit results seen from moon rest of the percentage seen from different planets like Sun, Jupiter and Venus. Few people believe that from natal position, square aspect transit or 1-7 transit gives bad results. But we cannot believe it blindly we need to consider other aspects as well. So answer for you question is we see transits from moon itself because moon reflects our happiness as well sadness. If mind is good everything seems to be good if it is bad everything thing seems so sad. Sir now i’ll take the next question. Q: What is the meaning of Thithi? What role does it play while calculating results of a horoscope. Can you hear me sir? In lunar calendar we calculate days in thithi’s. In a month we have two 15 days portions based on waxing and waning moon. Lunar calendar is purely based on moon while English calendar is based on Sun. Thithi is the main aspect of lunar calendar. Each lunar month has 30 thithis. 15 thithis for waxing moon, 15 for waning moon. Complete zodiac has 360 degrees, if we divide it by 30 we get 12 as the result. We take 1 degree as 12th amsa. Which means on amavasya day both Sun and Moon has same amsa, rasi and in same nakshatra. But from the next day of amavasya itself moon precedes farther from sun and on purnima day moon comes exactly 180 degrees opposite to the Sun. If we look at closely even if they are opposite (1-7) to each other but in amsa they both are in same amsa. Same way after poornima moon moves closer to the Sun. Thats how 30 thithis are formed. Birth on amavaya day is considered inauspicious in a horoscope. If sun and moon happen to be in same sign that conjunction will not give good results. Like Fire and Water if we combine them both will get destroyed. Same way Sun is fire and Moon is water. If their conjunction happens they destroy each other. As per my experience and observation if sun is in 6th or 8th from moon he becomes strong and also gives beautiful results. Same way full moon also gives very good results in a horoscope. But as per my observations sun in 6th and 8th from moon gives more favorable results. Each thithi has divided into 5 parts. Thats how thithi becomes more important in astrology and daily life as well. If we want to buy a new house or if we wish to travel or if we wish to start any new thing.. to start any new / good thing we look for auspicious thithi. 1st,6th and 11th thithi’s are called Nanda thithi’s. They are good. 2nd, 7th and 12th thithi’s are called Bhadra thithi’s. Here thithi means we are considering from both the Paksha’s. Third one is 3rd, 8th and 13th thithi’s are called jaya thithi’s. As the name suggests it gives victory. If we wish to start a new business or to study further or anything you wish to progress if you start it on jaya thithi it will give you good result. And 4th, 9th and 14th thithi’s are called as ‘Riktha’ thithi. We should not do any auspicious deeds on these thithis. But there are few combinations considered auspicious like if riktha thithi comes on saturday is considered auspicious. Thithis 5th (panchami) is known as poorna thithi like pornima. This is also gives very good results we can start anything on this thithi. We consider Thithi’s much more while doing daily good karma’s rather than looking at a horoscope. Very valuable information sir. Many of us look at panchang while starting something new or important but still struggle with some doubts. You cleared them all. Now i’ll take next question sir. This question is related to Prashna chart. How do we know if the result of a question is in favour or not based on prashna chart? Very good questions are coming from the viewers. Questions are quite interesting and also going to help many. See we have 12 zodiac signs. If some one asks a question we make a prashna chart based on the time and place. Now we need to see out of these 12 sings which sign will give good results and which one gives bad result based on the native’s question. There are 3 different types of rising signs. Prustodaya, Seershodaya and Ubhayodaya signs. Prustodaya Sign’s will rise from back .Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Sagittarius and Capricorn these are all called prustodaya signs. If someone asks a question while these sings are rising in prashna chart results will be bad and not going to help native. Now Sershodaya Signi’s, they rise from head and considered good. If someone asks question while these signs are rising in a prashna chart then results will be good. Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Aquarius signs are caleds Sershodaya signs Which gives good results in a prashna chart. 3rd type is Ubhayodaya sign which rises from both sides. Only Pisces is known as Ubhayodaya sign. If this sign is rising in a prashna chart desired result will be achieved with a little difficulty. In astrology we cannot simply predict by looking at a single aspect. There are multiple combination which effects results. In prashna chart what ever sign may be rising if moon sits in lagna or in 7th house giving good aspects consider result is going to be in favor, this is 50% sure. In the same prashna chart if some good planet is alone sitting in ascendant, kendra or trikona and bad planets placed in 3rd,6th or 2nd except in 8th house then also good results will be obtained for the prashna. 8th house of prashna chart must be clean. Even if it is Sershodaya rising on prashna chart if some bad planet sitting in 8th will not give good result. Even if it sershodaya sign some malific alone in trine will ge bad results. But if it is sitting with another good planet or some good planet is aspecting it then results will be modified for good. One more thing, in prashna chart any good planet sitting in 3rd , 5th,7th or 11th house especially 11th house is strong then results will be good. All these should be taken into consideration while deciding the result of a prashna but not merely dependent on one thing. Sir what is the word yegrah bhava means. SP: 11th house. From any sign 11th sign from it gives the sign strength. Suppose if i’m looking at 10th house 11th from 10th house is 8th house. If 8th house is strong or some good planet sitting in 8th house gives good strength to the 10th house. Also malefic sitting in 8th can destroy the 10th house. If 11th house is strong in prashna chart it gives good strength to the chart and results will be good. Like how 11th house represents gains in normal chart same say 11th house of prashna chart supports is results. There is a book called ‘Shatpanchasikha’ in that book chapter 60 explains entire prashna related topics beautifully. If one wish to know about prashna its a good book. In that book marshi parashara mentioned if Gemini, Virgo, Libra or Aquarius is rising in prashna chart then the chances of getting good results will be increased. What i feel is viewers should try this technique on different charts and let their views be known in the comment section of this video. Because its a very important technique sir has shared with us. PS: I just tried my best rest all they have to try and test on horoscopes and know by themselves. Please tell the next question. If someone wants to start a new task/job what should be they looking at as per muhurtha astrology. This is also a very good question. The core of Astrology is how to improve our own luck and also help others to improve their luck by using techniques/methods/remedies provided by the science of astrology. Specially muhurtha astology is very significant one. You really asked a very important question. Its like if you are going somewhere and you made a reservation in advance then your travel is going to be smooth and comfortable. Same way if we consider a good muhurtha while starting anything new then it will give good results and also may nullify any bad effects. Panchanga consists of 5 basic elements. Thithi, vara, nakshatra, karana and yoga. All are equally important but among these five elements nakshatra got more importance. Main concern is nakshata to takeup any new job. Also consider weekday as few weekdays like Tuesday and Saturday are considered inauspicious to start any new job. Tuesday and Saturday are know as ugravaar means ferocious days. One should not start any new assignments on these days. Mars and Saturn are considered good for few specific jobs. If someone wants to do a fixed job Saturday is good for that. Some people may join a new job on Tuesady or Saturday they stay longer in the jobs. Anything started on jaya thithi that is either on 3rd thithi (trutiya), 8th (ashtami) or 13th (trayodasi) is considered auspicious. Also 5th (panchami), 10th (dasami) and 15th (pornima) thithi’s also considered auspicious to start any new beginning. Among weekdays monday is considered very auspicious and then Thrusday. Results will be good and auspicious on these days. Dhruva or Sthira stars like Uttara, Uttarashada, uttarabhadra and rohina these are good to do fixed jobs. Things like starting new construction, doing japa or shanti is considered good on those nakshatra’s. Second thing is charasangyak nakshatra. Swathi and Satabhisha both are charasangyak nakshatras. To buy a new vehicle and to go on piligrimage these thithis are considered good. Next set is ugra nakshatra purvaphalguni, purvashada, purvabhadra, bharani and magha, these are considered ferocious and sinful . One can start fire related rituals or one can do operations on these days. Earlier kings used to build their weapons on these days. Next is mixed nakshtra’s Vishakha and Krittika both are considered as mixed stars. Lumbering, fire related rituals and for doing homas also considered good. Next Kshipra sangyak stars. Aswani, pushyami, Hasta and abhijit are laghu sangyak nakshatra. To start a new business or to design ornaments or to start / release any music related things is considered good on these stars. Next is mrudu (smooth) sangyak nakshatras. Mrigarisa, Chitra, Anuradha, Revati. On these nakshtra days one can initiate into music, can also start new sports activity. Next set of stars moola, jyesta, arudra and aslesha. These are dharma related stars. One can start mantra japa, or sever austerity on these nakshatras. Urdhwamukh nakshatras like ardra, pushya, sravana and uttara always go upwards. If we start any newjob on this date results will rise day by day. On these stars one can consecrate temples, can start new construction or can also start new business which will take them to new heights. Now adhokukha nakshatras, mula, aslesha, vishakha, krittika, purva phalguni, purvabhadra, purvashada and magha they also considered good for certain things. Borewells, building ponds all these are done on these nakshatras. No 3 tiryang mukha nakshatra anuradha, revathi, mrugasira, chitra, hasta, swathi, punarvasu, jyeshta and ashwani. One can pave roads, build footpaths, can start railway related work is considered good. Means infrastructure related works Yes, because this work consists of many ups and downs. These stars suits to start such type of works. Nakshatra, tithi, vara, karan and yoga we consider all of them while considering a muhurtha. Even if the rest of the factors are not good if we are getting ravi yog on that day means it will give good results. But there are factors which can destroy ravi yoga. Abhijit muhurta also considered very auspicious except on Wednesday. Calculations for Abhijit muhurtha. Calculate time difference between sunrise and sunset and divide the difference by 2. Add this to sunrise time to get starting of muhurtha or subract it with sunset time to get the ending time. Usually abhijit muhurtha starts around 24 miniutes before mid afternoon and ends after 24 minutes .Its a mean time of noon. If to start anything new is very important then how ever bad may be the day one can still start/do it on abhijit muhurtha except on Wednesday. Two things are restricted in abhijit muhurtha. One is Wednesday and second one is travelling to south direction. Scriptures also say that in case of emergency one shouldn’t bother about good muhurtha. Its quiet natural. One more thing i was discussing with you the other day. Scriptures also say while getting out of home how good might be the muhurtha if sakuna is good then results are going to be good. If sakuna is good then you go ahead do the work it will give you good result. But however if you get bad sakunas while coming out of the house then you shouldn’t take up the job its not going to give good results. If sakuna’s are not good then you please stop that thing its not good for you. I hope viewers mind this while doing any new things. I also wish to share one more thing. Whle coming out of the house family shouldn’t be fighting with each other always come out with smiling faces. If possible eat some jaggery and drink some water before coming out of the house. Also chant ‘Om gam ganapathaye namaha” while steeping out. One more thing watch your breath carefully in which nostril breathing is dominant. While stepping out of house step out with that leg first. If it is bhadra or bharani if going out is necessary please step out with same leg from main door your journey is going to be fabulous. Very simple, very important and keen point you just shared with us sir. Everyone can easily remember this because one has to go out for different reasons on daily basis. You told us very important point sir. My only intention is people get benefit out of Astrology by using simple remedies. They can change their luck. I fell we should do one separate session for sakuna sastra. Very true. I’ll take next question. Our last question, Based on astrology can we see the forthcoming events that are fixed and we cannot change. Can we modify the results by using some remedies to intensify or pacify results. Yes it’s very true. We can see what’s coming whether its good or bad through astrology. We can see and also suggest remedies. But for that one need blessings from god. Only human being is capable of doing new things, changing his luck, he can also make his luck if he wish to. If we come to know that bad days are coming not for the single day we can actually do remedies like japa, homa for the well being of entire family. Suppose sun’s related event is going to happen like father is going to suffer then best remedy is do surya japa, poja, homa and give water to surya, do some gayatri japa.. not for one day but by doing it daily we can change the outcome. By doing all these one can increase their good karma balance. What ever is accumulate either good or bad we have to go through it. But by doing japa, tapa we can reduce our negative karma. By constantly doing pooja, japa, tapa we can gradually reduce out negative karma and its bad effects. If results are too severe even after doing japa, tap also not giving any better results consider that you must go through such events. But shouldn’t stop doing remedies, by doing constant pooja, japa will reduce the severity of events. Instead of giving strong bad effects it might go away with little disturbance. In order to get win over problems we need to fight more and put more efforts. If problem is 10% and your effort is 8% including all your poja, japa, tap,daan, blessings from elders, service to community after doing all this also you are getting 8% means you are going to lose but will lose with less painful. One will only succeed when the problem is 10% and effort is 11% or 12%. The thing is we can change the outcome by putting more effort. Our rushi’s acquired powers like blessing someone or cursing some one only with their sever austerity Earlier if you have to get kingdom means they were doing japa. Japa doesn’t mean doing mantra sadhana but it also include tapa, dana and mostly by doing internal cleansing. One should keep check on internal bad qualities and try to reduce them and live truthfully. Try to have faith. All these come under tapasya. It is said that the secret of success is self control. Mainly one who gets the blessings by their heart felt devotion for the family. One who servers their parents with utmost devotion all their bad karma will get washed away. On top of it if someone do japa, tapa that person will be uneatable. In Bhagavd gita it is said one has to fulfull his own duties first. So one’s ultimate tapasya is to fulfill his duties. I’ll tell you one short story almost 40 45 years old story. One person left everything and ran away from home to do penance. He was so much involved in tapsya he forget to change his clothes for days. Good and great people used to come and visit him. He got some problem and has to go to court as a witness for his family deal.
He never wanted to go to court somehow but had go. After that he lost all his powers of his penance. He lost his fame in the society and later he died. All i wanted to tell you is one has to perform his duties with out attachment and greed. If people around is happy seeing you that itself is a blessing. One who’s on the path of truth will never get lost. Its very true sir. We should take next question in our coming session. Please forgive me i said anything wrong or i did any mistake. All i’m trying to say is by doing good deeds and performing one’s own duties one can avoid great mishaps and also can build luck at the same time. With that we close our today’s session. Will continue in the next session for the rest of the questions. Sure. Music.
