FORMULA FOR CALCULATION OF VARGAS

What are Vargas?

Vargas are numerical divisions of a Sign also called Amsas. Varaha Mihira mentioned Six Vargas; Kalyan Varma Seven Vargas; Mantreswar and Vaidyanath Ten Vargas; and Parasara Sixteen Vargas. They have mentioned descriptive methods to Calculate these Vargas. Kalyan Varma has given in addition a mathematical formula given below:-

“लग्नादीनां लिप्ता ञेयाः स्वग्रुहादि वर्ग स्ंगुणिताः

सष्टादश शत भक्ता लब्धः स्यादीप्सितो वर्गः”

Vargas Meaning:

Convert the longitude of a planet, Ascendant, etc., into minutes and multiply it by the number allotted to Concerned Varga. Divide this product by 1800. The quotient gives the number which indicates the Sign in which the requisite Varga falls. If this number is more than Twelve, divide it further by 12. Reject the quotient and take the remainder which represent the sign of the Varga. This can be expressed in the form of an equation as given below:-
Longitude of a Planet in Minutes × Number allotted to a Varga / 1800 = Sign in which the Varga falls (Equation 1)
Number allotted to Vargas are as follows:-
Sign 1
Hora 2
Drekkana 3
Saptamsa 7
Navamsa 9
Dasamsa 10
Shodasamsa 16
Trimsamsa 30
Now, see the derivatives:-
1. In case of Hora, Equation 1 becomes
Longitude of a planet in minutes × 2 / 1800 = Sign in which Hora falls
OR Longitude of a planet in minutes / 900 = Hora sign
2. In case of Drekkana, Equation 1 becomes
Longitude of a planet in minutes × 3 / 1800 = Sign of Drekkana
OR Longitude of a planet in minutes / 600 = Drekkana sign
3. In case of Saptamsa, Equation 1 becomes
Longitude of a planet in minutes × 7 / 1800 = Saptamsa sign
OR Longitude of a planet in minutes / 257.14285 = Saptamsa sign
4. In case of Navamsa, Equation 1 becomes
Longitude of a planet in minutes × 9 / 1800 = Navamsa sign
OR Longitude of a planet in minutes / 200 = Navamsa sign
5. In case of Trimsamsa, Equation 1 becomes
Longitude of a planet in minutes × 30 / 1800 = Trimsamsa sign
OR Longitude of a planet in minutes / 60 = Trimsamsa sign
This formula is not applicable in case of Dwadasamsa because cycle of 12 signs is completed in sign Aries itself. In this case the starting point is the starting point of sign itself and we move in regular order.
This formula can be extended to Dasa Varga (Ten Divisions). The additional three Vargas are Dasams (10 Divisions), Shodasamsa (16 Divisions) and Shastiamsa (60 Divisions). This formula is not applicable in case of Shastiamsa for reasons similar to those mentioned above in case of Dwadasamsa. In this case, the starting point is the starting point of the sign itself and we move in regular order completing five cycles each of 12 sign. In the remaining two cases, the derivatives are given below.
6. In case of Dasamsa, Equation 1 becomes
Longitude of a planet in minutes × 10 / 1800 = Dasamsa sign
OR Longitude of a planet in minutes / 180 = Dasamsa sign
7. In case of Shodasamsa, Equation 1 becomes
Longitude of a planet in minutes × 16 / 1800 = Shodasamsa sign
OR Longitude of a planet in minutes / 112.5 = Shodasamsa sign
