This is a collection of notes, prepared and compiled by Mr. A S Writer, who has been teaching both Astrology and Palmistry at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan since
1994.

Krishnamurthy Padathi and Palmistry. He has completed a thesis on Fixed Stars and has been awarded Jyotir Visharada.While compiling and preparing these notes he has referred to a vast collection of text books as mentioned in the bibliography.

This astrological year starts in the late March at the time when the Sun enters Aries . Thereafter the signs change at monthly intervals. The Zodiac is divided into twelve Signs or Rashi’s . Theoretically each sign is of 30. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac ; followed by Taurus and the others. The Zodiac chart is the map of the heavens at the time of the event is under reference. Hence the birth chart is the map of the heavens at the time of the birth at the given place of birth of the child and is known as the “Birth Chart”. The rising sign at the time of the birth is known as the Ascendant and signifies the East direction and is also the 1st . house of the horoscope. The sign opposite the ascendant is known as the descendent, is the West direction and is the 7th . House of the horoscope. The sign at the top and at right angles to the ascendant is the known as the Mid heaven ,is the South direction and the 10th . House . The sign opposite the Mid heaven is known as the Nadir , is the North direction and the 4th . House. Signs : They indicate the trend and the quality of the human mind. They confer power to resist against odd environments or circumstances. Houses: They denote the environment, circumstances and conditions of human life. Each house has its own specialties. Each sign is a content and each house is a transparent receptable . This content when put into the house gives a special quality to it. The beginning of the house is known as the Cusp of the house . The house extends from the cusp of the house to the cusp of the next house. However the Indian tradition to call cusp as “ Bhava Madhya “ is now accepted by Western Astrologers also, that being the most sensitive point of the House. Planets: The human mind is influenced by planets according to their inherent tendencies and the way their influence works in every walk in life. Desirable influence is felt under good aspects while undesirable influence is experienced under bad aspects or afflications – a planet in bad aspect is termwed as a planet in afflication or afflicated or afflicting.

Bipeds (2 legged / Human) - Gemini, Virgo, Libra & 1st . half of Sagittarius and Aquarius. Keetapeds (Reptiles) - Scorpio, Pisces & Cancer. Planets and Aspects Aspects indicate opportunities and situations, either easy or difficult, which arise in life. Good aspects bring favourable opportunities or situations; whilst bad / hard aspects create difficult situations. But they do not obstruct progress or success in life. Geometrical relationships between planets are called aspects. These relationships affect and modify the energies of the planets concerned. Some aspects have been shown to generate problematic events in our lives, while others seem to smooth the path with relation to the areas governed by the planets, signs and houses concerned. Should a planet have difficult aspects, or be in an unsympathetic position in the zodiac, it is said to be afflicted. Its negative characteristics may be exhibited on occasions through unfortunate personality traits, or through difficult circumstances arising in your life. Should it have favourable aspects, however, its effects will be more beneficial. Difficult aspects, especially to the "malefic" (dangerous) planets, are often quite problematic and can even be catastrophic in their effects. They are, naturally enough, more conducive to personal development, for they tend to generate complex results requiring considerable interpretation and self-analysis, while favourable aspects more often produce simple effects which are easy to understand. In any case, the chart must be viewed as a whole, for positive and negative characteristics may cancel each other out, or appear in mitigated forms, according to circumstances depending upon other factors.

Favourable aspects are :- trine (120°) sextile (60°) semi-sextile (30°) and parallel (conjunction in latitude). Conjunction (0°) may be favourable, difficult, or both, depending to a great degree upon the nature of the planets involved. Other aspects can be important in certain circumstances, as can the midpoints between planets, along with a number of other sensitive positions on the charts, but they are beyond the scope of the present discussion.

A separating aspect is stronger than an applying aspect. You can resist the evils of a separating aspect but it is not possible to resist against the evils of an applying bad aspect. When two planets occupy the same degree of declination, whether N or S , they are in parallel position. Like the conjunction , its nature is variable and an Orb of only 1 is allowed.

It is sometimes referred to as a “Dilemma’, in that when it is triggered – especially by a transiting planet-everything seems to happen at once. As a result, people with this tricky combination often seems to lurch from crisis to crisis as if their mettle is constantly being tested. Buy if and when they finally master their formidable energies, they may be capable of quite exceptional result. People with a cardinal grand cross have tremendous drive and energy, but also meet with a great deal of resistance in achieving their aims. While they may blame others for the frustration they experience, may of it is self – induced , for they seldom plan or think carefully before they act and insist on doing everything their own way. Those with a Fixed Grand Cross Tend to do everything within their considerable power to keep things as they are . valuing reliability and preservation above all else, they will passionately hold out against anything or anyone who tries to upset their sense of order ; when change inevitably comes it is usually dramatic and sudden. Mutable grand cross types have n o difficulty accepting change – infact, this is their problem. Rather then face a challenge they tend to alter their course in the vain hope that by changing their external circumstances, they can avoid unwanted difficulties. The lesson they have to learn is that their conflicts arise from within, as a result of a lack of consistency and tendency to spread themselves too thinly. s

Traditionally, the Grand Trine was thought to be extremely fortunate, but the modern view is that on its own it may be too fortunate. Since it shows natural talents which usually emerge early on in life, there may be a tendency to take these gifts for granted an and corresponding lack of resolve to develop them. The effects are much more positive when one or more of the planets in Grand Trine also makes a hard aspect - such as a square or opposition – to another planet. This stiffens the ‘ easy come, easy go’ attitude, urging the subject to put more effort into channeling their planetary energies purposefully. A more common version of a Grand Trine is the minor Grand Trine is the minor grand trine, which occurs when two planets trine each other and at the same time makes a sextile aspect to another planet. The effects are similar but often more dynamic since the sextile introduces a sense of perseverance that may other be lacking. 7 n

The effect is to exaggerate the qualities of the sign(s) and house (s) in which the stellium falls – although sometimes overpoweringly so, at the expenses of any planets which do not happen to aspect this relatively common configuration. 7 s r w

It is held to be easier to handle than the Grand Cross, for the empty arm offers an escape route and creates less of a feeling of being torn four ways. The tensions sets up can also be released through any planet(s) which makes sextile or trine aspects to one of the planets within it. The same sorts of dilemmas apply to the Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable qualities of the T-Square as to the Grand Cross. However, because the planetary energies are not as prone to being bottled up, people with this combination usually manage to sort out their inner problems more easily. s

The Yod takes its name from the Hebrew meaning ‘blessed’ and is reputed to have a quality of fate about it – in other words, the planets and houses involved point to a certain direction in life. This is not an easy pattern to work with, but if the tensions it shows can be resolved, great achievements are possible. z 7 1 5 0 De g. 1 5 0 De g. 60 Deg.

Because of its shape, the flow of energy may be limited to the soft aspects, missing out the hard ones altogether and leaving important issues unresolved, as with the Grand Trine. However, if the oppositions are integrated, the blend of hard and soft aspects can result in the kind of dynamic tensions that enables peoples to develop their natural abilities to the full. 7

Its effect is much the same as the Mystic Rectangle in that the many soft aspects can lead to a reluctance to face the difficulties shown by the planets in hard aspect. But again, if the issues shown by the opposition are confronted, the potential rewards are high. ns w

This can only happen when the planets involved are either very near the end or at the beginning of their respective signs. Because one of the planets in this configurati9on falls in an inharmonious sing, the flow of energy is less stable than the pure Grand Trine. The errant planet introduces a quality of tensions 0 rather like a square 0 to the aspect pattern, and offers a greater chance of using the planets collective energies assertively. Dissociate Grand Cross and T-Squares are also softer versions of their pure forms. At least one planet in the configuration falls in a different quality to the others, and consequently tones down the overall level of tension. The same principles apply to all dissociate aspect patterns. 7 n

Planets are located symbolically in the chart: the signs and houses filter their energies through the planets. The Sun passes through one sign a month on its annual passage around the Zodiac. Other planets, because they actually orbit the Sun, seem to travel rather erratically through the Zodiac. This is really an illusion, generated by our changing earthly perspective with respect to the planets' placement in their orbits, but it does have some interesting effects. From time to time, all planets except the Sun and Moon slow to a halt ("station") and then begin to move backwards through the Zodiac. This phase is called retrograde motion. The Planets can be divided as under The Sun and the Moon – also known as the lights Inferior planets namely – Mercury and Venus followed by the Superior planets namely – Mars , Jupiter and Saturn The two shadowy planets – The Nodes of the Moon – Rahu and Ketu The Extra Saturnian planets namely- Uranus, Neptune and Pluto

The body of the "energy dragon" is the fourth-dimensional path of the Moon by declination, as she weaves her web around the earth. The nodes are commonly known as the Dragon's Head (Caput Draconisin Latin), the North Node, and Dragon's Tail (Cauda Draconis), the South Node, although in Indian Astrology they are known as Rahu and Ketu. The Dragon's Head, a "shadow planet" exalted in Gemini, is considered benefic (good), whilst the Dragon's Tail, exalted in Sagittarius, is considered malefic (evil) in influence. Their motion is normally retrograde at the rate of roughly one degree every 19 days (compare the 19 year cycle of lunation); periods of direct motion are therefore considered unfortunate. The Dragon's Head (North Node): Rahu Rules: Virgo & Aquarius. Exalted: Gemini & Taurus. Detriment: Pisces & Leo. Fall: Sagittarius & Scorpio Aspects to the North Node concern or affect relationships to prevailing trends, attitudes and opportunities. The Dragon's Head represents your karmic objectives in this lifetime. It points the way towards soul growth and evolution. The sign holding your Dragon's Head reveals the flavour of your karma in this lifetime, while its house placement shows the area of life in which you need to develop, or become conscious of this karma. Positive aspects to the Dragon's Head are generally favourable from the benefics (Venus and Jupiter), Sun, Moon and Mercury, whilst sextile or trine from Mars, Uranus, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto also have beneficial effects. Square and opposition from the benefics and conjunction, square and opposition from the malefics are unfortunate, according to the matters signified by house and planet afflicted.

They tend to be separative and destructive. Any aspect to the South Node from any planet is unfortunate for matters to do with the house and planet activated thereby. Past life hangovers are represented by the position and aspects of the Dragon's Tail.

Traditionally described as the greater fortune, Jupiter governs joy, luck and well-being. When well-aspected, he provides superb opportunities for expansion and success.

Saturn, the grim reaper, rules responsibilities, restrictions and limitations you are apt to encounter, and the lessons you must learn in life.

The karmic lessons we have come to experience and overcome in this lifetime are expressed by Saturn. He spends around two and a half years in each sign, taking about twenty-nine years on his journey through all the signs. Each twenty-nine years naturally presents us with the challenge to rise to new levels of awareness, or face the consequences of having failed to gain the wisdom required so to do. • Denotes necessity for obedience to law.

It rules derangement, guilt, persecution and describes the potential for experiences related to confinement, abandonment, and addiction or physical intolerance to drugs and alcohol. Neptune, one of the outer, transpersonal planets, spends about thirteen years in each sign, taking around 164 years to move through all twelve signs. Since 164 years separate people born during its transit of one sign and those born when it returns, Neptune's significance in any sign is described as generational or historical.

The hindrances to evolution are ignorance, greed, laziness, lust, tyranny, and prejudices. Therefore, the institutions, habits or characteristics to which these vices are attached are the ones apt to be assaulted or overthrown by Uranus or Neptune. • Obstinate refusal to consider or apply spiritual principles to the life may cause these transcendental planets to act with tremendous malevolence in the life, either to limit the life from useless indulgence or to fee the life from shackles binding it to useless hindrances. Considered from a physical standpoint Uranus and Neptune may be compared to high frequency electric phenomenon, requiring for its control extraordinary precaution in insulation and proper grounding. • Neptune’s vibrations are of such high frequency that they tend to break down the insulation in the brain cells and nerve fibers of the body unless a proper outlet it found for its activities. This is cause of the chaos or confusion or frequently ascribed to Neptune.

The period Pluto spends in each sign can vary from twelve years to thirty-two years, due to the eccentricity of its orbit.
