NADI ASTROLOGY

S E C R E T   O F   N A D I  A N S H A

 

I want to be more simple defining secret of nadis about their numbers and each degree lies in the Shodasa vargas (sixteen subdivision of a sign). Looks as easy in calculation but difficult to apply practically. Simply, nadi amsa is the 150th division of an ascendant. Ascendants rise for 100–120 minutes. The shorter ones, rise for about 40–60 minutes, depending upon the  savodya kaal, means time span of a rasi. Hence, the 30 degrees of rashi divided by 150 is 12 minutes of arc. On an average, if 2 hours duration is taken for each rashi, it amounts to 48 seconds in time duration (2 hours multiplied by 3600 and divided by 150 is equal to 48 seconds). So 12 min of an arc and 48 sec is one nadiamsa.

A nadi is a vedic and specific unit of time. It is so short that no two individuals are born in the same nadi, if they are by any chance, they have very similar lives. So, nadi ansha becomes incredibly accurate as it highly distinguishes each individual. The method of nadi ansha is enough to give significant details about the life trajectory of a person along with their identifying features. Coupled with the houses and signs, the nadiamsa technique becomes capable of giving astonishing details.

The nadi anshas are numbered in clockwise direction in moveable rasi’s (aries, cancer, libra and capricorn signs) from beginning to end of rashi. In fixed rasi’s (tauras, leo, scorpio, aquarius signs) they begin from end to beginning of rashi anti-clockwise. In dual rashis (gemini, virgo, sagittarius, pisces signs) they begin from middle of rashi, to the end of rashi
then continue from beginning of rashi and counted upto the middle of rashi. Role of nadi in predictive astrology is same as of DNA in biological life.

 

This is the list for each longitude of each subdivisions under all vargas, merge them all in ascending order. All of them will submerge into 150 longitudinal units. You will get total of 150. To make things more simple, you can group the vargas which merge with each other in part or full as under.

 

30°/7  30°/16 30°/1, 30°/2, 30°/3, 30°/4, 30°/12, 30°/24 30°/9, 30°/27 30°/10, 30°/20 30°/45 30°/30, 30°/60

 

The above consist seven groups. Taking last one in each group as favourite, which covers all sub-divisions in it’s group. Let us list them individually.

FINDING NADI ANSHA OF A PLANET

 

        EXAMPLE CHART 1

ASTROLOGYastrology

Fixing The Degree

Suppose we have to find the nadi ansha of mars situated in chart at the degree 25 Sc 44. Correspond this degree, which is 25deg 44′ in table number one. In this table, 25 degree 44′ falls under nadi serial number 131 (upto 26.00′.00″).

So, first step is over after finding nadi serial 131.

Before we search nadi serial 131 in table two, we have to check the sign where mars is placed. This is placed in scorpio sign.  Scorpio is a fixed sign category. So, we will count nadi serial from the fixed sign column, which begins with number 150 as per fixed sign table 2.

In any fixed sign, first nadi ansha start with serial 150 in reverse order till the end of serial n.1

Here, you will find the name of nadi ansha of serial 131 is “mala” Check the table 2 for detail.

In similar way, we can find the starting degree of a house under study. Refer to bhav chalit chart as below. This is very important because nadi ansha of this degree can tell us which planet is having hold on this house.

  1. Moveable Signs -> Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn
  2. Fixed Signs-> Tauras, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
  3. Duel Signs-> Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

 

Vasuda nadi is the first nadi in the beginning of aries moveable rashi. This is from 0 degr to 0 deg 12 minutes, the 2nd nadi ansha is from 0 deg 12 minutes to 0 deg 24 minutes and so on till the 150th nadi ansha is from 29 deg 48 minutes to 30 deg.

Next, In taurus, a fixed rashi, 1st nadi ansha of vasuda is from 29 deg 48 minutes to 30 deg, the 2nd one from 29 deg 36 minutes to 29 deg 48 minutes and so on till the last 150th nadi ansha is from 0 deg to 0 deg 12 minutes.

In gemini dual rashi, the 1st nadi ansha of vasuda is from the middle 15 deg to 15 deg 12 minutes, the 2nd one from 15 deg 12 minutes to 15 deg 24 minutes and so on till the 75th nadi ansha is from 29 deg 48 minutes to 30 deg and then the 76th nadi ansha starts from the beginning of 0 deg to 0 deg 12 minutes, the 77th from 0 deg 12 minutes to 0 deg 24 minutes and so on till the 150th one is from 14 deg 48 minutes to 15 deg.

Thus it can be seen that 1st nadi ansha in aries, the 150th nadi ansha in taurus and the 76th nadi ansha in gemini are the same. This will be illustrated in next table. First nadi vasudha, will fall in all signs of a chart at different degrees and with different characteristics. This may give better result for cancer sign while in leo sign it may not. Result of all nadi ansha are not same for a single sign. I will try to explain later with their properties and results.

 

Basic theory of nadi ansha is the starting degree of any house, which is the important factor for the result of this house. The planets which are strong for the beginning nadi of a house has influence on that house. For example, taking chart as below, 11th house begins with 14 cap 45deg. This degree falls in nadi named mahamari. So this is the starting point of 11th house. The lord of 11th house is saturn, being a capricorn sign. In this mahamari nadi, venus, saturn and mars are strong ( i will explain later how to look for strength of planets in a nadi)  Thus, these three planets will have more contribution in 11th house matters. The growth of 11th house depends upon saturn, venus and mars and one can push more inputs related to these planets for better earnings, gains.

 

Let us take another example. The fourth house begins with the degree 17 Ge 41. This falls under serial number 90 of table number one and gemini is a dual sign. So finding this serial in table number two, the nadi of this degree will be kumbhini. In this nadi, respective strength of planets like sun, moon , mars, mercury and jupiter, venus and saturn are calculated . So for 4th house venus, saturn and jupiter are strong and these can contribute for 4th house happiness, where as lord of 4th house is mercury (4th house is of gemini sign) which is weak. The person might not get so much happiness of the home. Thus he was living and running an ashram. In SAV (saravashtakvarga), the mars has also one zero in 8th house, and also weak in nadi, so 8th house of this person lacks saving, accumulated funds, other obstructions for this house. Saturn has more power in this kumbhini nadi, so saturn will get him property, land etc.

 

Generally, we know that the ruler is karak for the sixth house from it.  If same planet is also strong for the beginning degree of any house, this means that planet is having control on that house. So karkatwa theory works here, being strong planet of initial degree, this will enhance the result of focus house. To delve deep, we have to understand bhav chalit and swodaya kaal.

 

IMPORTANCE OF BHAV CHALIT

There are many systems having their own theories how to calculate bhav chalit and fixing degree of each house. Some systems use equal degrees between first to fourth house ( 2nd, 3rd house) taking equal degrees of opposite houses (for 8th and 9th houses) . This calculation is not correct. Krushna ashtakavarga system sheds broader light and provide insight on this ancient knowledge. How this can be correct when each sign has a different sawodaya kaal ? Similarly, taking first house to tenth house in clockwise direction, there will be twelfth and eleventh houses. Opposite houses of these are fifth and sixth houses. Degrees of these two will be different as per their respective sawodaya kaal. For example, eleventh house degree should be different than it’s opposite sign fifth house, just because, every house has different sawodaya kaal. I will explain further but keep in mind this is only for quality and quantum and not for timing. Imagine if each bhav chalit house has it’s own divisional charts and finding ansha there after..!!

 

What Is Sawodaya Kaal

Sawodaya kaal is transit time of a sign at a particular place or location. Suppose you cast a chart at your town where aries lagna begins with 0 deg at 6am. Assume this aries lagna ends at 8.04 am. After ending aries lagna, taurus will  begin. Now this total time of 124 minutes (2 hours 4 minutes) of aries sign is called sawodaya kaal. This is for your particular place. Likewise, every rashi(sign) has different sawodaya kaal in natal chart. Different cities will be having different sawodaya kaal for the same rashi. For example, the above aries sign will be having different sawodaya kaal for amritsar city in punjab state and for chennai in tamil nadu state.

 

HORA CHART – DIN-MAAN AND RATRI-MAAN

For a sign, time to travel 30 degrees is equal to..??  In fact this is arround 27 degrees and not 30 degrees.  Our earth has a constant speed and it does not change. But it is tilted 23 degrees on it’s axis, so sawodaya kaal of each sign is different. From sunrise to sunset, total sawodaya kaal of all signs is called “dinmaan”. Similarly, total sawodaya kaal of all signs in night time is called “ratrimaan” . Now adding up both are called “aaho-ratro” . Ignoring “aa” and “tro” from this word is called HORA, which we used as a hora chart taking sun and moon. So this is basically  full dinmaan – time from one sunrise to next sunrise. In hora chart, the moon portion is fourth house. This will signify our net assets, the second house. Hora of sun relates to third house, which will show prakaram of a person. This chart will be D-2, reflecting net assets and prakaram. In hora, no other planets are involved except sun and moon where as in trimsansha D-30 rest of five planets are involved.
