Introduction

It is well-known that nakshatra dasa systems of Vedic astrology are essentially progressions. This author will share a technique he discovered, which throws up objective longitude correlations between:

  • Transit positions at the time of major events
  •  Progressed planetary positions as per a nakshatra dasa at the time

Dasa as a Progression

Let us take Vimsottari dasa to explain this idea. As one goes through mahadasas, antardasas and pratyantardasa, we can progress Moon through the zodiac and find the corresponding position of Moon.

Example: Suppose Moon is in Krittika nakshatra at birth and Sun dasa is running. When Sun dasa finishes and Moon dasa starts, progressed Moon enters the next nakshatra, i.e. Rohini owned by Moon. When Moon dasa finishes and Mars dasa starts, progressed Moon enters the next nakshatra, i.e. Mrigasira owned by Mars. At any given

Some astrologers judge transit positions of planets at the time of important events with respect to progressed Moon at that time, instead of natal Moon. Though that is logical, this author did not find any compelling objective correlations that way. He thought that other natal planets should also be progressed and not just Moon and that could throw up better correlations.

Progressing All Planets

This author tried in the past to progress all planets assuming that they were the seeds of dasa. But that is not logical. We pick Moon as the dasa seed in most charts, lagna in very few charts and Sun in even fewer charts. It makes no sense to progress all bodies independently by starting dasa from them. There ought to be a way to find dasa from one seed (e.g. Moon) and progress all planets consistently based on that one dasa from that one seed. That alone can be logical. But how that should be done was not obvious to this author for a long time.

The answer, when it finally came, was so simple and yet elegant and logical that this author was awestruck why nobody had ever thought of it!

The idea is simple and yet powerful: Simply rotate the entire natal chart! Rotate the entire natal chart so that natal Moon moves to his progressed position! Wherever other planets and mathematical points end up in that rotation, take those as their progressed positions.

In other words, progress all planets and mathematical points by the angle between progressed Moon and natal Moon.

In other words, a dasa progression is a way to rotate the whole zodiac in a non-linear fashion as time progresses!

Calculation of Progressed Chart

Find progressed position of Moon as per Vimsottari dasa from Moon. If Moon is weak and dasa should be initiated from lagna or Sun, use the progressed position of that seed. Apply the difference between the progressed Moon (or other seed) and natal Moon (or other seed) to the natal positions of all planets and mathematical points. That is the progressed chart. Then find the corresponding divisional chart positions in the divisional chart relevant to the matter of interest.

If one uses just rasi chart and ignores divisional charts, it is actually possible to mentally calculate the progressed positions of planets approximately.

Correlation with Transits

If any important planet in natal chart (rasi chart or divisional chart) for the matter of interest closely conjoins or aspects, in its transit, a relevant planet/house or a luminary in the progressed chart, it can bring an event related to the matter.

We can focus on the transit of Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu (and perhaps Mars).

This will become clearer after being illustrated with a few examples in the rest of this write-up.

Replicating Calculations

You can download “Jagannatha Hora” software from and select Pushya-paksha ayanamsa. In addition, you will need to set some divisional chart calculation options to follow this write-up. Some divisional charts are computed incorrectly by people now-a-days.

In the main menu of “Jagannatha Hora” software (version 7.67 or higher), you can select “Preferences”, “Related to Calculations” and “Set Calculation Options as recommended by author”, to set divisional chart calculations as used in this write-up.

Examples

Example 1: Academic Distinction

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He stood first in his state in 12th grade exams with a record score on 1987 May 28 and also got admission to Indian Institute of Technology a few days later.

Natal rasi and D-24 charts are shown below.

 

Natal Moon of rasi chart is at 29º 43′ 37″ in Aq and that corresponds to Jupiter-Moon-Rahu pratyantardasa at birth. At the time of event, Saturn-Mars-Jupiter pratyantardasa was running. That corresponds to a longitude of 12º 37′ 46″ in Pi. The longitude progression is 12º 37′ 46″ Pi – 29º 43′ 37″ Aq = 12º 54′ 9″. Adding the same longitude to all planets and mathematical points, we get the following progressed rasi chart.

Finding D-24 positions of all planets and mathematical points above, we get the following chart.

Jupiter, 9th lord of natal D-24, was transiting at the time of the event at 27Pi34! He closely aspected (and activated!) progressed Moon (lagna lord in own sign in natal D-24!) at 26Vi54 and progressed Sun (lagna lord in progressed D-24) at 27Sc59!

Rahu, 8th lord in 7th in natal D-1 (i.e. a maraka), was transiting at the time of the event at 12Li48! He closely aspected (and activated!) progressed Jupiter (6th lord of accidents in natal D-1) at 13Ge16. In addition, Jupiter, 6th lord aspecting 6th in natal D-1, was transiting at the time of the event at 18Sc27! He closely conjoined (and activated!) progressed Venus (badhaka lord aspecting badhaka sthana in natal D-1) at 19Sc42.

Progressing Divisional Vimsottari Dasa

There is another way to find progressed planets in divisional charts. If we want to time events in career, obviously Moon in dasamsa is also relevant as the dasa seed and not just Moon in rasi chart. So we can find dasa from Moon in dasamsa and use that dasa to progress Moon in dasamsa. That angle can be applied to the dasamsa positions of all planets and mathematical points and corresponding progressed positions can be found.

Example 15: Academic Distinction

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He stood first in his state in 12th grade exams with a record score on 1987 May 28 and also got admission to Indian Institute of Technology a few days later.

D-24 shows education. Natal D-24 is shown below.

Natal D-24 Moon is at 23 Cn 26′ 54.75″. That corresponds to Mercury mahadasa, Mars antardasa, Rahu pratyantardasa. That was running at birth (as per Vimsottari dasa from Moon of D-24).

At the time of academic distinction, he was running Venus mahadasa, Venus antardasa, Jupiter pratyantardasa. Of course, in natal D-24, Venus is 4th lord exalted in the 9th house of fortune and Jupiter is the 9th lord in 10th house. Both planets are associated with a quadrant and a trine and Venus is strong in exaltation sign. Thus, they can give fortune in education. But let us see how transits combine with this.

Venus mahadasda, Venus antardasa, Jupiter pratyantardasa running at the time corresponds to a progressed longitude of 14 Le 11′ 00.35″. Thus, Moon has progressed by 14 Le 11′ 00.35″ – 23 Cn 26′ 54.75″ = 20º 44′ 5.60″. We add the same angle to the natal positions of lagna and all planets to get corresponding progressed positions.

Here are the natal and progressed positions in D-24:

 

Body                 Natal Longitude                            Progressed Longitude

Lagna                3 Cn 15′ 48.53″              23 Cn 59′ 54.12″

Sun                    11 Aq 40′ 55.65″           2 Pi 25′ 01.25″

Moon                 23 Cn 26′ 54.75″           14 Le 11′ 00.35″

Mars                  7 Ge 32′ 04.64″              28 Ge 16′ 10.24″

Mercury           12 Sc 25′ 14.90″            3 Sg 09′ 20.49″

Jupiter (R)       21 Ar 35′ 00.73″            12 Ta 19′ 06.33″

Venus               7 Pi 18′ 31.72″               28 Pi 02′ 37.32″

Saturn              29 Le 44′ 41.30″            20 Vi 28′ 46.90″

Rahu                  12 Sc 34′ 25.95″            3 Sg 18′ 31.55″

Ketu                  12 Sc 34′ 25.95″            3 Sg 18′ 31.55″

 

Progressed D-24 chart is shown below.

Venus is the 4th lord exalted in 9th in natal chart and shows fortune in education. The 9th lord Jupiter was transiting at the time of the event at 27Pi34! He activated progressed Venus  at 28Pi03 and gave fortune in education.

If we use the natal longitudes, 27Pi34 is not close to any interesting longitudes. But, if we use progressed longitudes, 27Pi34 is quite close to progressed Venus at 28Pi03!

Example 16: Foreign Travel

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)

Event: He left his motherland on 1991 August 15 and went to USA for masters.

Charts: Natal & progressed D-4 (based on Vimsottari dasa from Moon of D-4).

Ketu is the 9th lord in 12th in natal D-4. He is also in the 12th house in natal rasi chart. So he shows going abroad. He is at 10Pi27 in progressed D-4. Transit Saturn (12th lord of natal D-4) at 9Cp32 had a close aspect on progressed Ketu and activated him.

Example 17: Foreign Travel

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He left his motherland on 1994 November 10 again and has been living abroad since then.
Charts: Natal & progressed D-4 (based on Vimsottari dasa from Moon of D-4).

Mars is the 9th lord in 12th house (longitude-wise) in natal D-4. He is at 16Aq08 in progressed D-4. Transit Saturn (12th lord of natal D-4) at 13Aq02 had a close conjunction with progressed Mars and activated him. Also, transit Rahu (12th co-lord in natal D-4) at 22Li09 had a close conjunction with progressed Sun at 22Li56. Luminaries are important in a chart.

Example 18: First Job

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He joined his first job on 1993 December 10.
Charts: Natal & progressed D-10 (based on Vimsottari dasa from Moon of D-10).

 

Jupiter is the 5th lord of poorva punya and recognition in natal D-10 and occupies the 6th house of service along with yogakaraka Mars. He is an important planet for getting a job or getting recognition. Transit Jupiter at 13Li25 had a close aspect on (and activated) his own progressed D-10 position at 14Aq04.

Example 19: Job Loss

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He lost job on 2002 August 12 when the start-up he worked for cut most operations & went into survival mode.
Charts: Progressed D-10 (based on Vimsottari dasa from Moon of D-10). Refer to example 18 for natal D-10.

Saturn is the 7th lord in 2nd and a maraka in natal D-10. He can give breaks in career. Transit Saturn at 3Ge16 had a close aspect on (and activated) progressed D-10 Venus (10th lord of career in natal D-10) at 5Le21. In addition, Rahu is the 7th co-lord in natal D-10 and can also give breaks in career. Transit Rahu at 22Ta51 had a close aspect on (and activated) progressed D-10 Sun (lagna lord in natal D-10) at 24Cp41.

Example 20: Job Promotion

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He received a job promotion in 2008 September.
Charts: Progressed D-10 (based on Vimsottari dasa from Moon of D-10). Refer to example 18 for natal D-10.

Jupiter is the 5th lord of poorva punya and recognition in natal D-10. He is an important planet for getting recognition. Transit Jupiter at 20Sg22 had a close aspect on (and activated) progressed D-10 Venus (10th lord in natal D-10) at 16Le40.

Example 21: Job change (survival)

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)

Saturn is the 7th lord in 2nd and a maraka in natal D-10. He can give breaks in career. Transit Saturn at 2Li35 had a close conjunction with (and activated) progressed D-10 Rahu (7th co-lord in natal D-10) at 2Li13. This can show a break in career.

Jupiter is the 5th lord of poorva punya and recognition in natal D-10. He is an important planet for getting recognition. Transit Jupiter at 8Ar44 had a close aspect on (and activated) progressed D-10 lagna at 8Li21. That safeguarded his career and he started a new job.

Example 22: Marriage

Birthdata: 1973 July 26, 9:48:10 pm (IST), Guntur, India (80e27, 16n18)
Event: She got married on 1999 January 25.
Charts: Natal & progressed D-9 (based on Vimsottari dasa from Moon of D-9).

Yogini Dasa Progression

This method can be extended to several other dasa systems apart from Vimsottari dasa, though we used Vimsottari dasa to illustrate the concepts. In fact, it may apply even better in Tribhagi variations of Vimsottari dasa and short dasas having 3 cycles naturally, e.g. Yogini dasa. What is outlined in this writeup is the tip of the iceberg and potentially the key to discovering a lot of interesting objective predictive techniques.

Let us illustrate a simple Yogini dasa principle as another application of the basic idea.

Confusion Due to An Imagined Problem

Some astrologers have considered Yogini dasa progression in the past. They only progressed Moon and not all planets as done in this writeup. In addition, they were confused by the fact that Yogini dasa has 8 planets and 27 is not a multiple of 8. Some elaboration may clarify this.

When defining Yogini dasa, Parasara defined the first dasa based on Moon’s nakshatra:

Aswini – Mars, Bharani – Mercury, Krittika – Saturn, Rohini – Venus, Mrigasira – Rahu, Ardra – Moon, Punarvasu – Sun, Pushya – Jupiter, Aslesha – Mars, Magha – Mercury, ……, Poorvabhadra – Mars, Uttarabhadra – Mercury, Revati – Saturn.

Once the first dasa is identified based on Moon’s nakshatra, dasas follow in the order of Moon, Sun, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Venus, Rahu (and then repeat the same 8).

If one is born in Aswini, first dasa is of Mars. If one is born in Revati, first dasa is of Saturn and the second dasa is of Venus. But Aswini, which comes after Revati, is associated with Mars and not Venus. This caused some confusion. When you map 27 stars to 8 planets, obviously there will be a “discontinuity”, to use mathematical language.

Some astrologers saw this as a “problem”, because they expected each nakshatra to be linked to a unique planet like in Vimsottari dasa. They claimed to have “solved” the problem by mapping the last 3 naksahtras back to the first 3 nakshatras and sharing the same 3 planets.

This is an unintelligent solution to an imagined problem and alters Parasara’s basic teaching.

Vimsottari dasa is one of the few dasa systems where the number of dasas (9) is a factor of 27. In many other dasa systems, we have 7 or 8 dasas. Each dasa system maps each nakshtra to a planet when it is the first dasa. When a nakshatra corresponds to a 2nd or 3rd dasa, it may give dasa of a different planet. Why should there be a unique planet for each star? 

Correct Progression Method

The way to progress Moon based on Yogini dasa is simple. Moon will be in the birth nakshatra in the first dasa. He will be in the 2nd nakshatra from it in the 2nd dasa (whichever planet it may belong to). And so on. This is the only logical and cogent way to progress. Also, we progress other planets by rotating the whole zodiac so that natal Moon moves to his proper progressed position.

We will see some simple examples that use only rasi chart. If transit Jupiter aspects a progressed planet associated with the house corresponding to an event in natal rasi chart, an auspicious event can occur. If transit Saturn or Rahu aspect, an inauspicious event can occur.

Example 23: Marriage

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He got married on 1993 August 1.
Charts: Natal & progressed rasi (based on Yogini dasa from Moon of rasi).

Moon is in Aquarius in Poorvabhadra at 29Aq44. Dasa calculations are shown below:

Mars:  1967-05-05  –  1971-05-05

Merc:  1971-05-05  –  1976-05-04

Sat:  1976-05-04  –  1982-05-04

Ven:  1982-05-04  –  1989-05-04

Rah:  1989-05-04  –  1997-05-04

The 5th dasa was running on 1993 August 1. This corresponds to the 5th star from Poorvabhadra, i.e. Bharani. It was close to the beginning of the 6th antardasa in Rahu dasa. Finding longitude based on the progress in dasa, progressed Moon is at 21º 56′ 27″ in Ar. The angle by which Moon progressed is 21º 56′ 27″ Ar – 29º 43′ 37″ Aq = 52º 12′ 50″. We add this angle to the natal longitudes of all planets and get the progressed chart (see below).

At the time of marriage, Jupiter was transiting at 17Vi14. In natal rasi chart, Sun is alone in the 7th house and can show marriage. Progressed Sun at the time of marriage is at 14Ta14. Transit Jupiter closely aspects progressed Sun and activates him. This can result in marriage.

Example 24: Job loss

Let us revisit example 19 using Yogini dasa progression of rasi. Progressed rasi chart is shown below.

In the natal chart, Moon and Rahu are in the 6th house of livelihood. Progressed Moon at 2Ge12 was conjoined by transit Saturn at 3Ge18. Progressed Rahu at 21Ta44 was conjoined by transit Rahu at 22Ta49. As transit Saturn and Rahu activate 2 planets in the 6th house in natal chart, matters shown by 6th house can be negatively affected at that time. Job loss is one possibility. Note that we are looking at just rasi chart here. Looking at divisional charts may give more finer insights.

Example 25: Vehicular accident

Birthdata: 1970 April 4, 5:50:40 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08, 16n10)
Event: He had a vehicular accident on 1996 December 5, in which his car was totalled (he was fine).
Charts: Progressed rasi chart (based on Yogini dasa from Moon of rasi).

Transit Saturn at 7Pi56 had a close aspect on (and activated) Jupiter’s progressed position at 7Sg28. In natal chart, Jupiter is the lord of the 4th house of vehicles, which is empty. Transit aspects of Saturn and Rahu on progressed Jupiter can cause issues related to vehicles.Again note that we are looking at just rasi chart here. Looking at divisional charts may give more specific insights.

For example, one can find Yogini dasa from Moon of D-16 (chart showing vehicles) and use that progression. If one does that, one wil find that progressed Jupiter at 10Sg28 and progressed Saturn at 5Pi55 (6th and 8th lords of natal D-16) were closely aspected/conjoined by transit Saturn at 7Pi56. That can be a clearer indication of a vehicular accident than what we saw above in rasi chart. Aspect of transit Saturn on progressed 4th lord of natal rasi chart can show many negative possibilities.

Thousands of factors come together to bring events. Multiple techniques of Jyotish attempt to capture some of them, so that an astrologer can be more confident of one’s conclusions.

Conclusion

Two methods were explained to progress all longitudes in a natal divisional chart, one based on Vimsottari dasa of rasi chart and the other based on Vimsottari dasa of divisional chart. Using both methods, interesting correlations between progressed positions and transit positions trigger events.

This method can be extended to several other dasa systems apart from Vimsottari dasa. It was briefly illustrated with Yogini dasa too. What is outlined in this writeup is the tip of the iceberg and potentially the key to discovering a lot of interesting objective predictive techniques. Ashtakavarga analysis of progressed and transit positions may also be interesting.

It is hoped that intelligent and sincere students and researchers of this divine subject will take this knowledge further and contribute to a renaissance in Jyotish and other knowledge related to rishis.
