Re: Dasha Periods?

Hello

Dasa system takes a person's life span to be 120 years and divides the time span into nine unequal and nonlinear spans each representing onw of the nine planets.
Sun has 6 yrs, Moon has 10 yrs, Mars has 7 yrs, Rahu/North node has 18 yrs, Jupiter has 16 yrs, Saturn has 19 yrs, Mercury has 17 yrs, Ketu/South node has 7 yrs and finally Venus has 20 yrs.

Manual calculation is also possible. Here's the technique:
First and foremost, the longitude of the Moon is to be noted. Thus we can analyse out of the 27 birth constellations, which constellation is Moon occupying "exactly" at the time of birth. Now each of the constellation is ruled by one of the nine planets. Now whichever planet's constellation Moon is occupying, that planet's dasa is the one in which the native is born ,i.e, meaning that dasa is to be taken as the first dasa. Say, Moon is occupying Mars' constellation, then the first dasa of the native would be Mars dasa and others ,in the non-linear fashion, will follow after this (Rahu, Jupiter and so on). For this, you need to find out the lordship of the constellations which can be easily done with the use of search engines.
Now, knowing the exact degree of Moon would tell us that how much distance has Moon already transversed through that constellation at the time of birth. Now you need to use MOD operator for the calculation. In simple terms, lets say Moon is at 167 deg. Using MOD here, 167 MOD 13.333 remainder would come out to be 7.004.
WHY 13.333 ? Because this is the "zone" occupied by each constellation under the zodiac signs. And as we know, 167 degree would be Virgo and under that it would be Hastha constellation owned by Moon.
Now 7.004 is the distance tranversed by Moon in Hastha. For the total distance in constellation, we have assigned 10 yrs to Moon dasa as you know. Now if already 7.004 was transversed, to convert this to yrs we do a simple unitary calculation (10/13.333)*7.004. The result would be further converted to years, months and days. Now this remainder would tell the time elapsed of that dasa prior to birth, so just subtracting this from the total time period allotted to that planets' dasa, would tell you the dasa at the time of birth. Now rest life time dasas are to be followed according to the abovesaid manner. Say birth took place when five years of Moon dasa were left, so after those five years, next 7yrs would be said as Mars dasa.

I hope you get this, otherwise try posting, taking any example and we can further rectify if you go wrong anywhere.

Re: Dasha Periods?

@Rachna94

Thanks a lot for explaining this.
It is little bit difficult and time consuming, and the software you suggested me is awesome. I have download that software it calculates MAHA dasa with in seconds wow. I haven't find any option of sub dasa in that software, does that Jafannatha hora calculates sub dasa as well???

I mostly use western charts (tropical time zone) but when I generate my chart on http://www.vedicscholar.com I got my all planets which are in 10th house they move in 11th and those planets which are in 11th they move in 12. I thought that difference between western and vedic's chart is just approx 22degree but why my planets also move to other house??

Re: Dasha Periods?

That software does calculate antardasas/sub dasa to the minutest levels. You just need to left click on the mahadasa period (ex. left click on Rahu's period, it'll get divided further) for which you want the antardasa. Then if you again left click at the antar dasa, you'll get pratyantar(sub-sub) dasas and so one till deha antar dasas. Its a complete Vedic tool.

Regarding why the planets also shift the sign and house, the reason is that we use sidereal zodiac, which is different from tropical. There are two terms "nirayana" and "sayana" which I think you must be familiar with. We consider Zodiac to be fixed in nirayana rather than moving as in Tropical. Now the exact difference is 23 degree 39 minutes. Now the cusps of the signs will also move. Like someone with Sun at 29 degree pisces on 11th in tropical, will have (29 minus 23 degree 39 minutes pisces) in sidereal. So this will entirely change the scene. Change in cusps, so is the relative change in position of planets.

Re: Dasha Periods?

Thanks Racha 4 all this info.

I was studying western astrology for many months but I was interested in vedic, unfortunately I didn't any enough material to study vedic, that's why that software looks little complicated to me. There are too many dasa etc in vedic I thought that vedic is much simple than western.

I have sun in 11th house in vedic If I read this in vedic style than general meaning would be "
Sun in 11th house

You probably possess a desire to raise goals to a higher level and to
seek ideas which would be of benefit for the group. Or you may desire
to place your own goals and desires above the wishes of the group.
You have the ability to make friends, many who are influential and
wield power. You enjoy your work with groups. You are responsible,
liberal and broad-minded. You are a humanitarian who would rather be
popular than powerful. You have organizing ability and probably take
the leadership role in group activities or friendly get-togethers."

But I have sun in 10th house in western if I read in westen style than general meaning is "shine in career, well known for his career"

I chart generated on http://www.vedicscholar.com

and in vedic I have mars in 10th means I have career of police,military,security related and in Western I have sun,moon,mercury in 10th and mars in near MC (overall meaning of this career should be related to "commerce"

Why these results are different?

Re: Dasha Periods?

I think you should start with basics if you want to learn Vedic astrology. Don't just go for general meanings, they are bound to confuse you even if you just read your western chart. As you know, a planet's placement alone decides nothing. In Vedic astrology, we look into deeper things like the various divisional charts for predictions not only the natal ones.

So start slowly step by step first learning how to erect a vedic chart, then understanding the system of reading it, then lordship of houses and signs etc.

Re: Dasha Periods?

hmm, U r right. First I have to make my strong base of vedic astrology, without having a base of basic knowledge it would be very difficult for me to learn anything advance.

Can u suggest me a basic vedic book which is easily available on http://ebookee.org or any other site at free of cost .
