The Unknown Pending Karma Technique of Sage Bhrighu


Where the 6th Lord in a natal chart sits or the Planets in the 6H indicate the Pending Karma of this Life that must be Crossed to go to the Next Cycle of Birth’. This is the Block that must be cleared & wiped out in This Life. This is the thing that will always Stop your Progress and Haunt you in this life’.

One must use this as a broad technique as this is not the only technique to find out pending karma, use it intelligently combining other tools and from various ascendants various things will be shown. Also if there is a planet in the 6H then see it is lord of which all houses and what it disposits, see the planets basic significations. Even though this technique is simple it can only be used by an expert who is master of houses, planets and house significations – if you are not widely read then don’t use this technique nor judge it – make no mistake about what we have written above.

MJ Chart & Pending Karma

MJ Chart & Pending Karma

 See in his 6H the planet of Music & Entertainment Venus is placed, his pending karma was to sing and entertain. It being in the sign of Cancer it shows that it was very creative as it’s a watery sign. Who does Venus disposit, it disposits the 9H of Father and Mentor, his pending karma was with his father and his Mentor Quincy Jones. At the same time Venus is womenfolk and some of his female friends were very close to him, whom he helped out financially thus his pending karma was towards them. Venus is also Money and Wealth and whatever sits in the 6H one tends to lose or let go. He let go of a lot of money for charities and eventually he got into further debts since 6H is the house of debts.  Coming back Venus disposits the 9H where Jupiter (children) and North Node (Rahu-Scandals), his Karma was pending towards these children where he got into scandal and also other world children whom he loved as it was his Pending Karma. Now where is his 6L placed, it is right in his 1H of self. These diseases, accidents and facial changes all were his Pending Karma and it had to happen. Now if you read BSP-15 that is revealed in this issue in the Indian section you will notice that the technique of where Venus sits it gives medical expenses and can at times indicate death. Venus is in the 6H of diseases his medical expenses were phenomenal and Venus is in the 4H of medicines and 4th sign of heart. He died due to drug over-dose and due to final heart failure (4th H and sign Cancer indicates heart). As the 6L is Moon who is lord of the sign Cancer and heart, he was considered most compassionate and as a mother to several children, why so, since it is the 6L of Pending Karma and thus he was most compassionate, the one with a lonely heart as that was his pending karma.

Let us see few more examples:-

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D. (July 8, 1926 – August 24, 2004) was a Swiss-born psychiatrist and the author of the groundbreaking book On Death and Dying, where she first discussed what is now known as the Kübler-Ross model. She is a 2007 inductee into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. She was the recipient of twenty honorary degrees and by July 1982 had taught, in her estimation, 125,000 students in death and dying courses in colleges, seminaries, medical schools, hospitals, and social-work institutions.

Now use the Sage Bhrighu method of Pending Karma and you can see how beautifully it works in this chart. The lady did original work on Death and Dying and became world famous, see the planet in 6H it is the planet of communication and writing Mercury who is the 8L of death, she wrote ground break work on Death and Dying. Now see the 6L it is Moon – she was a psychiatrist, they deal with the mind, this Moon is in the 5H of authorship – she wrote the groundbreaking book Death and Dying, it is with Sun the natural zodiac lord of authorship and real knowledge and life giver. She gave new life to the concept of death and dying, this 6L Moon is with Rahu and rahu is the underworld and dark things significator, death is considered a dark subject in most cultures. Thus you can see how Sage Bhrighus rule of Pending Karma works so well in her chart, in some charts it will not be too obvious until we know the full story of the person so it’s no use speculating it on a chart which is only 30-40 years old.

Sylvester Stallone – It Ain’t Over Yet

They say if you work in the Hollywood or Bollywood industry you will not like the celebs, you won’t be in awe of them and this was the case with us and we were not at all impressed with Sly Stallone who just seemed like any other fame hungry guy who is in Hollywood until one reads about this man in a book by a Sage and it seems this man was in demand back there in the Himalayas and the people there seems to think that Stallone has done a great service to mankind.  Why ? Since this man taught USA and the world to ‘Never Think Anything is Impossible’ ‘To Fall and Get Up, But Get Up’. When we researched on the net and talked to few oldies in the west they said that Stallone’s Rocky taught you that even though you are the underdog, even if you are a nobody just don’t give up, if you fall in life you make the fastest comeback and win the heart of your enemies. Generations have grown on the Rocky Series, each learning to fight with life’s impossible circumstances just the way Rocky did and as they say Rocky was made for Stallone and no one else could do it, he wrote it and did not get go even when he had few dollars left in his pocket.

Now use Sage Bhrighus 6H rule, over there sits Rahu the planet of Cinemas, the 6L is Venus a planet of entertainment in the 8H of the Underdog and the Dark Horse, who is with the 3L of acting Saturn and hands and with Mercury, the natural lord of hands and pending karma and this Mercury is also the 10L of profession and the 7L of public limelight and so it was his boxing (hands) movie that gave him the famous name of the Italian Stallion and his phenomenal left punch (11L of left hand – is the same 6L Venus of Pending Karma). All this energy in 8H with Saturn aspects his 5H of acting and thus the man who became John Rambo – the forgotten dark horse went on to create history as the greatest underdog who could not deliver a single dialogue on camera, who was born physically handicapped to become the Messiah for all underdogs in the world.

Lets relook this, North Node (Rahu- obstacles) is in the 6H where the sign Taurus is there, it is the 2nd house of the natural zodiac signifying face and speech (note the 1H is classically the skull and brain), so this 6H Rahu should show pending karma and what he ‘needs to overcome’ . Doctors used forceps during his birth that severed a nerve and caused paralysis in parts of Stallone’s face, resulting in his signature slurred speech and drooping lower lip. There are two kinds of people one who cry and the other who use their disadvantage into an advantage, Stallone used his slurred speech to get into the best quotes ever on screen, remember “Yo, Adrian” – Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa – Rocky. Then you see the 6L again and you see it goes into the 8H of sex with Saturn, whenever Venus Saturn are in 8H or 12H then it can lead to sexual scandals it what has been our limited observation. In Stallone’s case it show pending karma in the sexual dept and it is only when that is finished his Karma will be Unleashed. Now read this from Wikipedia ‘Stallone had his first starring role in the softcore pornography feature film Party at Kitty and Stud’s (1970), later re-released as Italian Stallion (the new title was taken from Stallone’s nickname since Rocky and a line from the film). He was paid US$200 for two days’ work. Do you see how he had to finish this Karma which later re-surfaced in 2007.

Mahatma Gandhi – Father of the Nation

Mahatma Gandhi – Father of the Nation

Let us see the Pending Karma of Mahatma Gandhi, Father of India Nation. 6th Lord is Jupiter, and we all know that Jupiter means Guru, the one who shows the way and light to his students. Jupiter is also the 9L of Father in natural zodiac and thus here in the case of Gandhi it is in the 7H of Public Life. Thus he became the Father of the nation, showing the way to the whole nation and the world. His teachings are still followed worldwide and he inspired revolutions from Martin Luther King to the current Obama. Now this is for Indians, Jupiter as a planet is categorized as a Brahmin – caste which is a scholarly class and does not fight and loves to eat. Jupiter here is retrograde so it will show some qualities of a normal Jupiter and some of a retrograde and he showed here his quality of non-violence, scholarly works and as it is retrograde he created his system of fasting. If he fasts for a cause the Britishers would throw him in jail, then he would fast again in jail and the Britishers would be forced to throw him out of jail. What a way he showed.

Barack Obama – The King

Mahatma Gandhi – Father of the Nation

In his 6H there is Venus and the 6th lord Mer is placed in the 7H of ‘Public Life’. It is placed with Sun which signifies Govt and is the King of the Planetary Cabinet, so he got the position of the King of Earth (US President is considered the most powerful man) and this sun is the 8L of suddenness, which is what happened to him. Now who is there in the 6H it is Venus which means money, so it was during a time of economic recession he was the chosen one, now see the lordship of this Venus, it is the 10L of Govt and 5L of power, this is what has happened in his life and this is what is his Pending Karma. Come back to his 6L it is aspected by Saturn and Jupiter, which means he must take care of the common man (Saturn) and also the affluent (Jupiter) and as this Jupiter is the 12L of previous karma, this 6L is further fortified by Jupiter’s aspect. See the whole chart from Moon as the Asc, the 6L is Venus placed in the 2H of administration from the moon and in the 2H of speech. He rose to power due to his speeches (more so as it is in the sign of Gemini- communication) and got into the most affluent administration of all (Venus is affluence). This was his pending karma and you can see this is happening in the 4H of education or for those who take 2H as primary education, he is doing reforms there in the education field – again his pending karma. You can use the natural zodiac of Aries Asc and see that his 6L is Mercury sitting in the 4H of Throne with Sun the King and he is no doubt sitting in the seat of the King.

Abraham Lincoln – Father of USA

He needs no introduction, from astro point of view his time of birth is suspect. So as we don’t have his exact time of birth let us look at his chart in this broad technique from Moon Asc and Natural Zodiac Asc which is from Aries Asc. From Moon Asc his 6H is empty and its lord Mer who is the natural lord of 3H in zodiac which as you read in this article 3H is the house of ‘Unlocking Of Karma Through Actions’ and it is with Sun (King of Planets) in 2H of administration, thus he became the President of United States. He successfully led his country through its greatest internal crisis, the American Civil War, preserving the Union and ending slavery.

Now look from the natural Asc which is Aries and the 6L will always be Mer (use this hint for all charts) and it is with Sun the King in the 11H of Accomplishments of Desires & Power. This is only being spoilt by Saturn whose 4th aspect spoils this Sun Mer combination of Power. It was during Saturn/Mer period he got assassinated if we take the B rating given by ADB, thus you can see how Saturn spoilt this Mercury (Pending Karma) combination by giving death in Saturn/Mer period.

Abraham Lincoln – Father of USA

George Lucas – Star Wars Film maker

6H is vacant but the 6L is Mercury the planet of communication in 1H (whole life) and with planet Venus the planet of entertainment and magnanimous wealth. So he communicated via his movies which were big budgets. The lord of this Venus Mer conjunction is Mars (wars-fighting) and is conjoined South Node (Rahu- Movies) and thus he made movies of the unknown (South Node-Rahu) which were huge and big movies (it is with Jupiter who is also expansive). This was his pending karma.


Although in some of the above examples one can clearly see how the Pending Karma technique is working, in some cases one need to just see where Mercury is placed and in some cases you need to go to the stronger of planet as reference or the asterism lord (nak lord) as co-association to come to the conclusion. If there are requests then in a separate article would take up other cases of how to use this simple looking technique but extremely complex at times and only superb mastery of astrology coupled with great intuition can help one use this technique to see the Pending Karma. Just so that when readers try it on many charts and not find it working smoothly, the need arises to mention two points

1)  There are in total as of now 4 methods that Saptarishis Astrology is aware of which are concrete techniques to find out the Pending Karma that must be done in this life to go the next level – which is the real reason behind astrology and not prediction

2) At times it is better to switch the zodiac from Indian to Tropical (western) or Sayana System (which is also Indian and some Vedic astrologers still use it and was in vogue in 20th century in Maharashtra) or at the same time to use both the zodiacs and then use this technique. Right now we are unable to comment on which zodiac to use on ‘which’ type of chart as a work called Krishneeyam (dated around 4th or 6th century) contains a verse on the zodiac and we have been unable to decode it exactly.

Still let us take the two zodiacs as a case study on Elvis Presley’s chart and though one must not study this Pending Karma technique on charts of singers as classics are not clear on singers and the houses of singers but still let’s venture into it.

Indian Zodiac – Elvis Presley

With the Indian Zodiac Chart 6H is empty and 6L Mars has gone into the 11H of highest achievements. Some ancient texts give a clue on singers but mostly scared and confusing

Garga Hora Chapter 12 Verse 1248

1248 The Sun, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn in the 11th house: will be truthful, be chief in his race, be very wise and be skillful in singing.

Garga Hora Chapter 4 Verse 298

298 Jupiter, Venus, Saturn in the 3rd house: interested in singing, be not sinful, be interested in women’s wealth, be prosperous, will locate hidden treasures, be dear to  young women, and will be firm in  friendship.

Let’s see again 6L of pending karma has gone into the 11H whose lord Mercury has gone in the 2H of speech and is with Sun the King of Planets, he was called the King. But still the pending karma is not so easily seen and crystal clear. Now use Western Zodiac

Western Zodiac – Elvis Presley

The 6H is empty and the 6th lord (owner) is Venus the planet of entertainment and performance, it is in the 2H of voice with Sun (The King & natural 5th lord of performer in the natural zodiac) and is conjoined with Mercury, the singer and communicator and natural 3rd lord of singing. The dispositor of this 2H is Saturn who is in the 3H of singing with North Node (Rahu) the natural planet of immortality and the groovy planet, his songs were groovy and one would go round and round about him. He had the capability of making you drunk over him and his songs without drinking at all. This was his pending Karma which he completed and which is the job of the astrologer to prescribe and unlock. Thus you can see that in this particular chart of Elvis, it is more easier to use the Tropical (Sayana) zodiac to decipher his Pending Karma than the Indian Zodiac or better it is to combine both for e.g. a Gemini Asc with Indian zodiac will have 6L Mars in the 9H of Guru, Teacher and Higher Knowledge and this natives aim is to spread higher knowledge in jyotish and his pending karma was to serve his guru.

Western Zodiac – Elvis Presley

If we take the same chart via the western zodiac the Asc comes as Cancer and the 6L of Pending Karma is Jupiter in the 8H of occult and astrology in the sign of Aquarius, the native has been successful in bringing to light some rare hidden knowledge and manuscripts freely to the Astrology world, why so since Jupiter is a planet of Light and where it sits it brings light to the house, whereas 8H of occult is a dark & hidden house and here Jupiter brought out (light) the hidden knowledge in astrology unknown so far to the astrology world right into the outside world. So you combine both and you would safer, at the same time it is easier to predict even for us when a known celeb chart is given to us but on unknown charts that easily it is not decipherable – only experience is the best teacher.

Inability to Predict – Pre-Release of Publitorial

As a practice the Publitorial is not shared before release with even the core team members except Mentor. This time we made an exception and shared it with some friends wanting to understand their view point on some of the controversial points of the Publitorial. Presented here is an ICAS[1] teacher, a voracious teacher, unbiased individual and one of the most novel researchers in modern astrology. His response to the Publitorial is reproduced here with his permission.

Dear S,

1) At the outset the editorial is really excellent. After reading this I would admit that I do not know the real astrology.

2) My opinion is there is nothing in this editorial to be edited or removed. But it has become very lengthy and people may lose interest/track in reading it. If possible try to make it a two part. One part can be article on “unlocking the karma”.

3) Please go through the incident I am narrating here. On December 25th 1998 one person as a regular routine started to go for morning walk at around 6:00 AM. As the climate was very chilly he wore sweater and covered his face except eyes with muffler to beat the cold. After walking for sometime one car came and stopped in front of him from back side and the person driving the car was shouting at him with anger. Without knowing the mistake he committed he asked the man why he was shouting. Then the man came out of the car and said why you tried to misbehave with my wife when she went for morning walk. By this time one lady came out of the car and told her husband that this is the person who caught her from back side when she was walking. Failing to understand what was happening to him this person (who went for walk) tried to convince them the he is not the one who misbehaved with the lady and probably she had mistaken identity and mistook him for someone and try to think twice before blaming someone for no fault. But the lady and her husband were firm and sure about the person.

This story did not stop here and both the parties trying to prove their point. The lady gave a police complaint on the person she identified for his mis behavior. The other side is the person was in a very respectable post and he had a proven track record and none of his acquaintances believed that he could do such thing. Every one supported him and some of the lady colleagues went and spoke to the lady who had lodged the complaint and persuaded her to withdraw the complaint. Though the lady accepted to his colleagues that she may be wrong but she does not want to withdraw the complaint as she was afraid of her husband as he may take her to task for wrong identification.

Ultimately the person got rid of the complaint by the involvement of a very senior police officer with the help of his boss. The person was unnecessarily involved in this scandal for no fault of his. Here the lady also cannot be blamed as she had mistaken the identity. But the mental agony the native had was enormous.

Can u guess who the person is? Its’ me.

DOB: 26-08-1968 TOB: 09:44a.m POB: Hyderabad. I have Rahu in the 6th house. 6th lord Jupiter is in the 11th house (Leo) in the star of Venus. I was running Rahu – Venus dasa. Venus is Lagna lord and posited in the 11th house. If we go by BCP method I was 30years old at that time so my 6th house has to operate in the 30th year. [SA: Going into it minutely the event is 4 months past 30 but still Rahu will operate due to 12th aspect of Rahu]

Why I narrated this is whether you can link the unlocking karma for this incident.


Post mortem is always easy but let us answer to Mr. K’s query as to how to see pending karma. First and foremost pending karma is not one but obviously many and in many areas of one’s life. The 6th house has Rahu, if he is an astrologer he is not an astrologer from this life but from previous life[1] and it is his deepest desire to be a great astrologer (sign is Pisces), apart from that the 6L is Jupiter (knowledge) goes in the 11H of Jyotisha (astrology) in the sign of Leo (author) with Sun Mercury, seeing this we have encouraged him to become a writer and his articles have created history so far. Now see the sexual scandal, the 6H has Rahu that is South node and that denotes scandal as such and it is in the 12th sign which signifies bed pleasures and sex so again something to do with that can happen. Then see 6L has gone in the 11H with Sun (Govt/boss) and Venus (woman) and Mercury (colleagues) with A8 (scandals) and this Venus is the 8L of scandals. It was his boss (Sun) who called up senior police officers (Sun) and with help of colleagues (Mercury) that the problem (Venus) got solved. This was his

pending karma that he had to face unfortunately. Also since 11H is that of wife and children, either he must have gotten married or have had a child and after some time this scandal would have erupted in his life, we don’t know re the same but will have to check. What we must admit is though we had this chart since one year we could ourselves not see this scandal pending karma since the native is one of the straightest men we have ever known and only thing that we saw was his pending karma of an astrologer and writer that’s it. Technique no doubt works to the T but every time applicability with 100 % accuracy only a Sage can do and let us astrologers start admitting it for a start.

        The moment more amount of astrologers come to know of a technique the planets who are constantly creating & have consciousness come up with new methods to decipher and deliver their results thereby making the task of astrologers difficult, this is an unknown secret but that is the reason one of the sages like Parasara said around 3000 years back that even great sages[1] cannot easily decipher the movement and results of the planets
