DASHA OF PLANETS
Maitreya said. O Maharsi Parashara! You have told me about the different kinds of Dashas. Now be kind enough to enlighten me with the effects of Dashas.2. Maharsi Parashara replied. O Brahmin! There are two kinds of effects of Dashas: general and distinctive. The natural characteristics of the Planets cause the general effects and the distinctive effects are realized by their placements etc. 3-4. The effects of the Dashas of the Planets are in accordance with their strength. The effects of a Planet in the first Dreshkan are realized at the commencement of the Dasha. The Planet in the second Dreshkan makes its effects felt in the middle of the Dasha. The effects of the Planet in the third Dreshkan are experienced at the end of the Dasha. If the Planet is retrograde, these effects would be in the reverse order. The Dasha effects of Rahu and Ketu, who are always retrograde, will always be realized in the reverse order. 5-6. The effects are favourable, if at the commencement of the Dasha the Dasha Lord is in Lagna, in his exaltation, own, or a Shant Rasi. The results are unfavorable, if the Dasha Lord is in 6th, 8th, or 12th House, in his debilitation, or in an inimical Rasi. 7-11. During the Dasha of Sun there is acquisition of wealth, great felicity and honors from the Government, if at the time of birth Sun is in his own Rasi, in his exaltation Rasi, in a Kendra, in 11th, be associated with the Lord of 9th, or the Lord of 10th and strong in his Varga. The native will be blessed with a son (children), if Sun is with the Lord of 5th. The native will acquire elephants and other kinds of wealth, if Sun is associated with the Lord of 2nd. The native will enjoy comforts of conveyances, if Sun is associated with the Lord of 4th. He attains a high position, like that of Army Chief, by the beneficence of the king and enjoys all kinds of happiness. Thus during the Dasha of a strong (and favourable) Sun there are acquisitions of clothes, agricultural products, wealth, honors, conveyances etc. 12-15. During the Dasha of Sun there will be anxieties, loss of wealth, punishment from Government, defamation, opposition by kinsmen, distress to father, (in)auspicious happenings at home, distress to paternal and maternal uncles etc., anxiety and inimical relations with other people for no reason whatsoever, should Sun be in his Rasi of debilitation, be weak in 6th, 8th, or 12th, or be associated with malefic Planets, or with the Lord of 6th, 8th, or 12th. There will be some favourable effects at times, if in the above situations Sun receives a Aspect from benefic Planets. The effects will always be unfavorable, when malefic Planets give a Aspect to Sun. 16-22. O Brahmin! After describing the effects of the Dasha of Sun in brief, I will now come to the effects of Vimshottari Dasha of Moon. During the Dasha of Moon from its commencement to the end there will be opulence and glory, good fortune, gain of wealth, auspicious functions at home, dawn of fortune, attainment of a high position in Government, acquisition of conveyances, clothes, birth of children and acquisition of cattle, should Moon be in her exaltation, in her own Rasi, in Kendra, in 11th, 9th, or 5th, be associated with, or receives a Aspect from benefics, be fully powerful and is associated with the Lord of 10th, 9th, or 4th. There will be extraordinary gains of wealth and luxuries, if such a Moon is in 2nd House. 23-26. Should Moon be waning, or in her debilitation Rasi, there will be loss of wealth in her Dasha. If Moon is in 3rd, there will be happiness off and on. If Moon is associated with malefics, there will be idiocy, mental tension, trouble from employees and mother and loss of wealth. If waning Moon is in 6th, 8th, or 12th, or is associated with malefics, there will be inimical relations with Government, loss of wealth, distress to mother and similar evil effects. If a strong Moon is placed in 6th, 8th, or 12th there will be troubles and good times off and on. 27-32. If Mars is in his exaltation, in his MulaTrikonaa, in his own Rasi, in Kendra, in 11th, or 2nd House with strength, in a benefic Ansa (Navamsa) and is associated with a benefic, there will be during his Dasha acquisition of kingdom (attainment of a high administrative, or political position in Government, gain of wealth and land, recognition by Government), gain of wealth from foreign countries and acquisition of conveyances and ornaments. There will also be happiness and good relations with co-borns. If Mars with strength is placed in a Kendra, or in 3rd, there will be gain of wealth through valor, victory over enemies, happiness from wife and children. There will, however, be a possibility of some unfavorable effects at the end of the Dasha.
If Mars is in his debilitation Rasi, weak, in an inauspicious House, or is associated with, or receives a Aspect from malefics, there will be in his Dasha loss of wealth, distress and similar unfavorable effects. 34-39. In order to cl6thfy the effects of the Dasha of Rahu I shall first mention the exaltation and debilitation Rasis of Rahu and Ketu. The exaltation Rasi of Rahu is Taurus. The exaltation Rasi of Ketu is Scorpio. The MulaTrikonaas of Rahu and Ketu are Gemini and Sagittarius. The own Rasis of Rahu and Ketu are Aquarius and Scorpio. Some sages have expressed the view, that Virgo is the own Rasi of Rahu and Pisces is the own Rasi of Ketu. Should Rahu be in his exaltation Rasi etc., there will be during the Dasha of Rahu great happiness from acquisition of wealth, agricultural products etc., acquisition of conveyances with the help of friends and Government, construction of a new house, birth of sons (children), religious inclinations, recognition from Government of foreign countries and gain of wealth, clothes etc. If Rahu be associated with, or receives a Aspect from benefics, be in a benefic Rasi and be in 1st, 4th, 7th, 10th, 11th, or 3rd, there will be during his Dasha all kinds of comforts by the beneficence of the Government, acquisition of wealth through a foreign Government, or sovereign and felicity at home. 40-43. If Rahu is in 8th, or 12th House, there will be during his Dasha all kinds of troubles and distress. If Rahu is associated with a malefic, or a Marak Planet, or is in his debilitation Rasi, there will be loss of position, destruction of his residential house, mental agony, trouble to wife and children and misfortune of getting bad food. There will be loss of wealth at the commencement of the Dasha, some relief and gain of wealth in his own country and distress and anxieties during the last portion of the Dasha.
Now I am going to describe the effects of the Dasha of Jupiter, the great benefic and preceptor of the Gods. 45-48. If Jupiter is in his exaltation, his own Rasi, his MulaTrikonaa, in 10th, 5th, or 9th House, in his own Navamsa, or in his exalted Navamsa, there will be during his Dasha: acquisition of kingdom, great felicity, recognition by Government, acquisition of conveyances and clothes, devotion to deities and Brahmins, happiness in respect of his wife and children and success in the performance of religious sacrifices (oblations. 49-51. If Jupiter is in his debilitation Rasi, combust, associated with malefics, or in 6th, or 8th, there will be during his Dasha loss of residential premises, anxiety, distress to children, loss of cattle and pilgrimage. The Dasha will give some unfavorable effects at its commencement only. During the later part of the Dasha there will be good effects, like gain of wealth, awards from and recognition by Government.
Now I will describe to you the effects of the Dasha of Saturn, who is considered the vilest and most inferior amongst all the Planets. 53-56. If Saturn is in his exaltation, in his own Rasi, or in MulaTrikonaa, or friendly Rasi, in his own, or exalted Navamsa and in 3rd, or 11th, there will be during his Dasha recognition by Government, opulence and glory, name and fame, success in the educational sphere, acquisition of conveyances and ornaments etc., gain of wealth, favours from Government, attainment of a high position, like Commander of an Army, acquisition of a kingdom, benevolence of goddess Lakshmi, gain of property and birth of children. 57-60. If Saturn is in 6th, 8th, or 12th, in his debilitation Rasi, or combust, there will be during his Dasha ill effects from poison, injury from weapons, separation from father, distress to wife and children, disaster, as a result of displeasure of Government, imprisonment etc. If Saturn receives a Aspect from, or is associated with a benefic, is placed in a Kendra, or in a Trikona, in Sagittarius, or in Pisces, there will be acquisition of a kingdom, conveyances and clothes.
Now I am going to describe the effects of the Dasha of Mercury, who is called a Kumar (in his teens) amongst all the Planets. 62-65. If Mercury is in his exaltation, in his own, in a friendly Rasi, or in 11th, 5th, or 9th, there will be during his Dasha acquisition of wealth, gain of reputation, improvement in knowledge, benevolence of Government, auspicious functions, happiness from wife and children, good health, availability of sweetish preparations, profits in business etc. If Mercury receives a Aspect from a benefic, is in 9th, or is the Lord of 10th, the aforesaid beneficial results will be experienced in full and there will be great felicity all-round. 66-70. If Mercury is associated with a malefic, there will be during his Dasha punishment by Government, inimical relations with kinsmen, journey to a foreign country, dependence on others and the possibility of urinary troubles. If Mercury is in 6th, 8th, or 12th, there will be loss of wealth, due to indulgence in lascivious activities, possibility of suffering from rheumatism and jaundice, danger of thefts and malevolence of Government, loss of land and cattle etc. At the commencement of the Dasha of Mercury, there will be gains of wealth, betterment in the educational sphere, birth of children and happiness. In the middle of the Dasha, there will be recognition from Government. The last part of the Dasha will be distressful.
Now I will tell you about the Dasha of Ketu, who is a headless trunk (Kabandha) amongst all the Planets. 72-77. If Ketu is in a Kendra, a Trikona, or in 11th, in a benefic Rasi, in his exaltation, or in his own Rasi, there will be during his Dasha cordial relations with the king, desired headship of a country, or village, comforts of conveyances, happiness from children, gain from foreign countries, happiness from wife and acquisition of cattle. If Ketu is in 3rd, 6th, or 11th, there will be in his Dasha acquisition of a kingdom, good relations with friends and opportunities for the acquisition of elephants. At the commencement of the Ketu Dasha there will be Raja Yoga. During the middle portion of the Dasha there will be possibilities of fearfulness and in the last part there will be sufferings from ailments and journeys to distant places. If Ketu is in 2nd, 8th, or 12th, or receives a Aspect from a malefic, there will be imprisonment, destruction of kinsmen and residential premises and anxieties, company of menials and diseases.
Now I will describe the effects of the Dasha of Venus, who is the incarnate of intoxication, ecstasy, delight and pride amongst all the Planets. 79-82. If Venus is in his exaltation, in his own Rasi, or in a Kendra, or a Trikona, there will be during his Dasha acquisition of fancy clothes, ornaments, conveyances, cattle and land etc., availability of sweet preparations every day, recognition from the sovereign, luxurious functions of songs and dances etc. by the benevolence of Goddess Lakshmi. If Venus is in his MulaTrikonaa, during his Dasha there will definitely be acquisition of a kingdom, acquisition of a house, birth of children and grandchildren, celebration of marriage in the family, attainment of a high position, like the Commander of an Army, visits of friends, recovery of lost wealth, property, or kingdom. 83-84. If Venus is in 6th, 8th, or 12th, there will be during his Dasha inimical relations with kinsmen, distress to wife, losses in business, destruction of cattle and separation from relations. 85-87. If Venus is in 4th, as Lord of 9th, or 10th, there will be during his Dasha attainment of rulership of a country, or village, performance of pious deeds, like building of reservoirs and temples and giving grains etc. in ch6thty, availability of sweet preparations every day, vigor in work, name and fame and happiness from wife and children. 88-89. Similar are the effects of Venus in his sub-periods. If Venus is Lord of 2nd, or 7th, there will be during his Dasha physical pains and troubles. To get alleviation from those troubles the native should perform Shatarudriya, or Mrityunjaya Japa in the prescribed manner and give in charity a cow, or female buffalo.
