vargottama - vargantya
graha occupies identical rashi in both radix D-1 chart and navamsha D-9 chart
Vargottamsha graha will give strong effects during its dasha period. The reason for these strong effects is that when something affects the radix graha it also affects the navamsha graha, in the same way.
Usually vargottamsha graha are noticed in the radix + navamsha. (However vargota-amsha graha may match as radix + dashamsha, radix + Dwadashamsha, radix + any other varga chart.)
Budha-Kumbha = vargottamsha in radix + navamsha. What are the implications?
The effects = that whenever gochara Shani transits Kumbha, or Dhanushya, or Vrishabha, or Simha - that not only the native but also the spouse will have the experience of Shani oppressing Budha.
When the native enters a period of Budha, there will be highlighted effects of Budha-Kumbha noticed not only in the native 's life, but also in the spouse's life.Anything which affects radix Budha, also affects the other Budha.
In terms of the interior world of the native , the lord of the graha in both its radix function (material life) and its navamsha function (psycho-spiritual life, intimate partnership) is the same.
Therefore the personality gets much stronger and clearer in focused articulation of the traits of the Budha-Kumbha (e.g., scientific mentality, likes to think about networks, rather abstract, conceptual style of speech-vocabulary which is nevertheless quite social, the native may have many friends but few intimates, etc.)
Vargottamshagraha = less diversity and flexibility in the personality, and more focus on a handful of traits. Events are most vivid and singular; also things get out of balance more quickly because of inability to find any alternative method.
For example if Shani = Vargottamshain Makara, the native may be unable to conceive of non-hierarchical social arrangements. The spouse will also have a highly traditional and rule-ordered view of society. the native will marry the partner who completes a conservative-behavior couple. The couple (D-9) will have little tolerance for those who practice moral customs different from those they were raised with, and who will have a great preference for orderly procedures, respect for elders, rule of law, etc. When difficult transits or Vimshottari periods affect the VargottamshaShani, the husband and wife are equally distressed. When beneficial events happen, they are equally happy.
The upside is that the particular behaviors represented by the Vargottamsha graha are quite uniform throughout the key relationships in life. Vargottamsha graha in the D-10 are a great indicator of finding support and validation in a professional culture that does not challenge one's way of working; in fact, one's professional colleagues will display nearly identical values in reference to the role of that Vargottamsha graha. But, when innovation or alternative viewpoints are needed to make a healthy change, the Vargottamsha graha is not a resource for diversity. It only knows one way of doing things.
Most people are quite different on the inside (D-9) than they are on the outside (D-1). The psycho-emotional reality (D-9) is different from the social-material reality (D-1). Vargottamsha graha eliminate this difference. for the karaka values of the graha, in the joint lives of spouses, or professional colleagues, or parents-children, etc. .
Effects of the Vargottamsha graha's dasha period will be stronger than if they were not Vargottamsha. Vargottamshagraha have a similar effect upon both the native and one's partner.
The pressure of gochara Shani upon this graha will affect not only the native (from radix) but also one's spousal relationships (from navamsha). Any impact upon the primary graha (in radix) will also dramatically affect the role of that graha in the vargo-tt-amsha varga charts.
Some planets are Vargottamsha in both radix and navamsha. Vargottamsha= powerful.
Vargottamsha planets gain their power from being completely "reflexive" during their periods, having no secondary psychic dimension, giving strong and direct results. If the atmakaraka is also Vargottamsha, the native may become very famous. (Elvis Presley.)
Vargottamsha planets will give beneficial results in their periods if they are benevolent by rashi and sthana, but they can also give doubly negative results if occupy a hostile rashi or dushthamsha.
Q: What does it mean that I have uchcha Rahu in both D-1 and D-9?
A: The power of a vargottamsha graha is that not only oneself but also the agents who act via the varga will be affected by anything that triggers the vargottamsha graha. Triggers can be a transit or a bhukti period of the vargottamsha graha or the lord of the vargottamsha graha.
A vargottamsha between D-1 and D-9 suggests that both you and the life-partner, as well as you and the business partner( s) enjoy the high material-accumulations entitlements of the uchcha Rahu. But when that uchcha Rahu is affected in your own nativity you will notice that ALSO in reference to Rahu's ambition and acquisitiveness, that the energy in the people around you goes up very high when your own gainfulness goes up very high, and goes down similarly low when yours goes very low.
Often found in people who play the financial markets together, speculate in business together, etc. They share an environment with dramatic, high-ambition shared rise-and-fall elements. Remember that Rahu's ambitions are intense but He is often exposed for fraudulent methods of achievement and He can lose much of His valuation due to getting caught for ethical violations.
Q: I have been told that the Vargottamsha status of the lord of my mahadasha will protect me from any ill effects during the period.
A: Vargottamshagraha do not have inherently "protective" effects.
Vargottamsha graha are simply stronger,, for good or for evil, because the graha creates an identical experience for both the native and spouse (D-1 + D-9), or the native and parent (D-1 + D-12), or the native 's material external life and the native 's interior spiritual life (D-1 + D-9) -- whichever are the varga's that are Vargottamsha.
If the Vargottamsha graha is auspiciously placed in both D-1 and D-9, expect beneficial effects during its periods./p>
If it is problematic in one varga, the fact that it is Vargottamsha = it will also be problematic in the matching varga.
Also, bhava-2 = 8th-from-7th = conditions of the spouse's death. Ms. Gandhi's husband was affected just as she was by his death in her Vimshottari period of Guru/Budha/Mangala, when gochara Surya and gochara Rahu contacted her Vargottamsha Mars. Mangala enjoys parivartamsha yoga with Surya, making Mangala particularly sensitive to Surya's movements.
Questions from a student of Jyotisha:
Q: 1. What is the real effect of a vakri planet (malefic / benefic)? Some say a planet in vakri is not good and some say its okay and fine. Some say that retrogression makes a planet strong Some say a neecha planet or a malefic being vakri is very good and vice-versa (so does this mean a benefic like Guru being exalted and vakri becomes weak?)
Q: Is vargothamma concept applied only w.r.t. D9? Can we use vargothamma concept also to other divisional charts? Can we say that, for example, if Venus being 10th lord in rasi and vargothamma in D10 then its good for professional rise?
Q: Somewhere i read that vargothamma is equivalent to exaltation and it shows innate talent of a person. Is that true?
A: No. You might be confusing vargottamsha with the atmakaraka.
Q: What is the effect of a neecha planet in vargothamma? Is it good or bad? Can it be also considered to be exalted? Please give an example. Because i have a chart with Mars is neecha (with neecha bhnaga) in 12th house in both D1 (leo lagna) and D9 (leo lagna).
A a neechcha vargottamsha graha provides the same neechcha effects to both the native and one's "partnership environment" = spouse and business partners as well as other more spiritual types of partner such as certain types of collaborating ancestor guides. Whenever that particular neechcha graha is triggered, most of the important equal-partners in your environment are affected (if neechcha, rather negatively affected, via weak life-force) in the same fashion as oneself. There is no opportunity for the spouse to balance one's deficiency in this area since the partners carry the same deficiency.
