ZODIACAL & PLANETARY PRODUCTS

Before we study the uses of dots in different Ashtakvargas, there are two more factors to be studied. These are Zodiacal Product and Planetary Product .

Zodiacal Products

These can be found out by the following steps :

1. Find out the no. of dots in each Ashtakvarg (after 2nd reduction, i.e. Ekadhipati Shodan,

2. Multiply each figure by the zodiacal factors for each sign. These are constant for all horoscopes and are given below :

Signs : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Zodiacal 7 10 8 4 10 5 7 8 9 5 11 12

Factors :

For example, let us find out Zodiacal Product in case of Sun Ashtakvarga for our sample horoscope. Already we have worked out the no. of dots after Ekadhipati Shodan . These are :

Signs : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Sun : 0 2 0 2 5 3 0 0 3 0 1 2

Multiplying by 7 10 8 4 10 5 7 8 9 5 11 12

Zodiacal factors

Result : 0 20 0 8 50 15 0 0 27 0 11 24

The total of these comes to 146. This is the Zodiacal Product for Sun. This way, the zodiacal products for all planets can be found out. These have been worked out and summarised in a tabular form below.

Planetary Products

These can be found out by the following steps :

1. Find out the no. of dots in the signs where different planets are posited in each Ashtakvarg (after 2nd reduction, i.e. Ekadhipati Shodan),

2. Multiply each figure by the planetary factors for each sign. These are constant for all horoscopes and are given below :

Sun = 5 Mon= 5 Mar= 8

Mer = 5 Jup = 10 Ven = 7

Sat = 11

For example, let us find out planetary product in case of Sun Ashtakvarga for our sample horoscope. Already we have worked out the no. of dots after Ekadhipati Shodan. We also find from the sample horoscope that Sun is in 8, Mon in 7, Mars in 8, Mer in 8, Jup in 7, Ven in 8 and Sat in 11. This means signs involved are 8, 7, 8,7,8,8, and 11, i.e. 7, 8, and 11. The dots in sign 8 in Sun Ashtakvarga is 0, in sign 7 also 0, and in sign 11, it is 1. Now in each Ashtakvarga find out the number(s) in the sign (s) in case of each planet and multiply the same by Planetary factors as given below :

No. of dots (after Ekadhipati Shodan) in each sign in Sun Ashtakvarga are (as already worked out) :

Signs : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Sun : 0 2 0 2 5 3 0 0 3 0 1 2

As Sun is in 8, multiply the no. of dots in sign 8 in Sun Ashtakvarga, i.e. 0 by the planetary factor for Sun, which is 5. The result will be 0 ( 0 x 5). As Moon is in 7, multiply the no. of dots in sign 7 in Sun Ashtakvarga, i.e. 0 by the planetary factory for Moon, which is also 5. The results will be 0 (0 x 5). Similarly these have been worked out for all Ashtakvargas and shown in the following table.

Sun Mon Mar Mer Jup Ven Sat

Sun in 8 0x5=0 0x5=0 0x5=0 0x5=0 3x5=15 1x5=5 0x5=0

Mon in 7 0x5=0 0x5=0 1x5=5 2x5=10 0x5=0 1x5=5 2x5=10

Mar in 8 0x8=0 0x8=0 0x8=0 0x8=0 3x8=24 1x8=8 0x8=0

Mer in 8 0x5=0 0x5=0 0x5=0 0x5=0 3x5=15 1x5=5 0x5=0

Jup in 7 0x10=0 0x10=0 1x10=10 2x10=20 0x10=0 1x10=10 2x10=20

Ven in 8 0x7=0 0x7 0x7=0 0x7=0 3x7=21 1x7=7 0x7=0

Sat in 11 1x5=5 0x5=0 0x5=0 1x5=5 3x5=15 0x5=0 0x5=0

Total 5 0 15 35 90 40 30

Thus,

After calculating these products, let us now find out how to use these products.

Examples (relating to sample horoscope)

1. Sodya Pinda of Sun : 151

No. of dots in the IXth (before reduction) from Sun in Sun Ashtakvarga (Chart No. 9) = 5

Multiply these two figures, i.e. 151 x 5 = 755

Divide this figure by 27, i.e. = 755/27 = 27 26/27. This means remainder is 26. Now count the 26th star from Aswini. This comes to Uttar Bhadrapad. Whenever Saturn passes over this star, there will be some trouble to father of the native.

2. Sodya Pinda of Moon = 110

No. of dots in the IVth (before reduction) from Moon in the Moon Ashtakvarga = 5

Multiply these two figures, i.e. 110 x 5 = 550

Divide this by 27, i.e. 550/27 = 20 10/27. This means remainder is 10.

Now count the 10th star from Aswini. This comes to Magha. Whenever Saturn passes over this star, there will be some trouble to mother of the native.

3. Sodya Pinda of Mars = 93

No. of dots in the IIIrd (before reduction) from Mars in the Mars Ashtakvarga = 2

Multiply these two figures, i.e. 93 x 2 = 186

Divide this by 27, i.e. 186/27 = 6 24/27. This means remainder is 24.

Now count the 24th star from Aswini. This comes to Shatbisha. Whenever Saturn passes over this star, there will be some trouble to brother of the native.

4 Sodya Pinda of Mercury = 110

No. of dots in the Xth (before reduction) from Mercury in the Mercury Ashtakvarga = 6

Multiply these two figures, i.e. 110 x 6 = 660

Divide this by 27, i.e. 660/27 = 24 12/27. This means remainder is 12.

Now count the 12th star from Aswini. This comes to Uttar Phalguni. Whenever Saturn passes over this star, there will be losses in the business/profession of the native.

.

8. 8. Sodya Pinda of Saturn = 126

No. of dots in the VIIIth (before reduction) from Saturn in the Saturn Ashtakvarga = 5.

Multiply these two figures, i.e. 126 x 5 = 630
