Varga charts can be exceptionally useful.
However, if accurate birth time is not available, divisional charts are
misleading, and should be ignored.
" The bhava whose lord is in a benefic Shodashamamsha -10 will flourish."
| Vocabulary for D-16
Vahana = "bearing, carrying, conveying, drawing
SoDazan = 16
KalA = 16
the 16 Shodashamamsha -10 (16th part of a Rashi, of 1deg52min30sec)
The presiding deities of these repeat in the order
four times in the case of an odd Rashi.
It is reversed in the case of an even Rashi,
that these ruling deities are understood."
D-16 = Field of Psychic Expectation for Specific Matters of:
What can be predicted?
What can be predicted?
benefits and non-benefits of vehicular transport
The ease, speed, and convenience of travel by land, sea, and air.
And also, the potential for accident and injury through vehicular travel,
which is a consequence of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy (6) in the movement.
Covers all modes of non-pedestrian travel from camels and ox-carts to F-1
fighter planes and zephyrs. (See"working animals "also in bhava-6)
First, before looking into the D-16, check Shukra, bhava-4 radix, and
Sensual Shukra = Karaka for (the luxury of) vehicular
lagnesha Shukra in bhava-9 = teaching or preaching = may be an itinerant
teacher or philosopher. one may not own a car, or even a donkey, if both Shukra
and bhava-4 are weak. However, one may enjoy the pleasures [Shukra] of world
travel (9) therefore opportunities for expression of the D-16's prognosis for
vehicles = mainly in context of world-travel (outside one's region) which is
nearly always by public conveyance - plane, train, bus, ship
shows the strength of physical grounding, how well one is in sync
with the environment of the place . Even the moving place. This is
primarily an emotional condition, not so much a condition of concentrated
awareness as of intuitive coordination with the physical, social, emotional, and
bhava-4 indicates the stability of one's
foundations in life = the basic security of the lifestyle and
behaviors. When bhava-4 is stable (not necessarily luxurious, just stable!) the
native will rarely experience major upsets in matters of shelter - fixed shelter
or moving shelter
what is the angle from the bandesha-4 to its own bhava? Is the bandesha-4 in
a friendly house? Any co-tenants? bandesha-4 indicates the same qualities as
bhava-4, However, bandesha-4 goes out of the house to mix with others, so always
check the"peer pressure" upon a bhava-lord to determine its final actions.
In the case of a pending car purchase+ bandesha-4 will help to decide whether
one should buy a luxury car with pricey embellishments (which Shukra might
crave) or stick with the basic model (Exempli gratia, a strict and
austere Shani = bandesha-4 ) or rather put the car mani-money into savings and
take the bus!
D-16 may reveal the up-side of an otherwise poor-looking planet.
The Jyotiṣika usually check the D-16 not only to ascertain akashic-memory
s , but also to balance their spot judgment.
If that nichha condition for Professor Shani seems intuitively more
subject to prolonged repetition of the key structural elements of the learning
(Usually, via constrictive drishti) than it appears, it probably is.
The D-16 will reveal the secret benefits of a planet if there are any and
send the Jyotiṣika back to the radix in search of confirming positive aspects.
bhava-4 = shelters.
In addition to D-4 Chaturthamsha, D-16
Shodashamamsha -10 = another elaboration of details broadly contained in the 4th
Shodashamamsha -10 is specific to vehicles and their good
or bad effects.
It may be useful to study the D-16 when pondering a vehicle purchase, or
making vehicle insurance choices.
Also, before embarking on a long or dangerous journey, prospects for
adventure in vehicles should be considered.
Avoid superstition and anxiety while reading D-16
People may hesitant to travel by vehicle, since the opportunity for chaos
during speedy movement does seem to increase proportional to the strength and
speed of the vehicle. Psychically sensitive persons may be especially afraid of
travel, and their anxieties may cause exaggeration of the significations of the
When the psychic grounding cord which attaches our Earth-bodies to the center
of Earth becomes disconnected due to distraction or shock, psycho-physical body
movement becomes irregular. The possibility to lose balance may result in an
accident. Vehicle operators must check their psychic grounding cord along with
checking lights, mirrors, brakes, and engine. However, we live in an age of
constant and usually profitable travel.
While it is not sensible to allow negative readings of the D-16 to prevent
travel, it is practical to add awareness of the D-16's situation to one's
existing intuition. Of course, it is always a growth-challenge to
separate Anxiety (fear of change) from intuition!
However, if there are suggestions in the D-16 pointing to some discomfort or
even calamity while traveling by vehicle, and Yet, there are not other major
Jyotisha concerns such as a time of serious injury or worse, then knowing about
an accident or severe delay in advance can actually reduce worrying.
One can say: Oh, this was forecast - I shall wait out the inconvenience or
distress, help others when possible, and know that this too shall pass.
I have a great desire to own a luxury automobile. I have
had this desire since early in my life.
Yet, the circumstances of my life seem to prevent the
acquisition of such a lovely and satisfying object.
Will I obtain the car of my dreams?
Namaste: About vehicles
Here is an evaluation process. Every Jyotiṣika has their own method, but
there is some similarity of methods according to the practitioners' degree of
adherence to the classical literature.
Kinetic Kuja strong in bhava-5 in supportive company.
Shukra = Luxmi = luxury occupies bhava-4 receiving drishti of
blessed [uchcha] Guru from the house of Private Imagination (bhava-12).
One may be able to manifest his imaginative dream of owning and operating a
beautiful luxury automobile.
D-16 = vehicles. Varga show more subtle, more astral, more
refined = higher up levels of expectation which are essentially smaller
thoughts nested inside of bigger thoughts.
D-16 reveals the presence of resistance to realizing the
dream. Luckily, this Shani-structured, apparently mandatory resistance can be
improved through self-awareness.
he astrological signature of the resistance is the presence of bandesha-4
Kuja in Kumbha indriya-lagna of the D-16.
In the hostile rashi of Kumbha, Kuja is oppressed by Shani-driven
About Varga Information
Varga characteristics reflect a more subtle astral patterning that is
ultimately determinative: like the tiny
water-spring which has the
programming (destiny) to eventually become a
It is the same with the human mind. Changes made to the small thoughts within
one's total belief system, can yield huge material improvements through
the"trickle down effect"
That tiny spring is not physically big or heavy like the full-grown river. At
the source, it is fairly easy to
redirect it. Yet, intentional changes made to a small
originating and determinative thought can have massive"downstream" consequences
Changing the nature of that tiny spring can change the course of a great
With that awareness in mind, let us approach the study of varga charts with
an interest in isolating some of the more subtle and mentally"manageable"
thoughts that are more easily amenable to positive adjustment.
Expectations revealed at the varga level are purely thoughts and they are
absolutely amenable to conscious control.
Resistance to Wealth and Well-Being
As many great philosophers have observed,
poverty is a form of mental illness.
The cause of poverty is a systematic negative expectation that kicks in at
It is caused by victim mentality sustained by negative electro-magnetic
The negative thoughts when expressed in interior language will use words like
(guilt ) and"will-not"
or"can not" (grief ).
When Shani is a dominant force in any nativity, the presence of guilt, grief,
and fear are particularly strong. However, it is important to acknowledge that
each native chooses the precise configuration of the graha at the time of birth.
The choice of graha in the Jyotishavidya nativity
reflects the person's clear and present spiritual intention to complete a
program of transforming ignorance into wisdom. A central tenet of any wisdom
program is the awareness and transformation of fear into acceptance, and
Note that radix bandesha-4 Kuja occupies a hostile rashi, the sign of Shani
who is Kuja's bitter enemy. Kuja wants to drive forward (literally here since we
are examining the topic of cars!) and Shani wants to stop Mangala at any cost.
Shani's job is to prevent change, and the tool Shani uses to do the job is Fear.
So, we see that at a higher level of mind there is a negative resistance
thought, a non-permission thought, regarding personal vehicles. You do
absolutely have the power to reverse this thought, but the D-16 exposes it for
us in the Jyotisha view.
Beneficially, now it is known where the work needs to be done in order to
clear the path of permission to allow you to possess the vehicle of your luxury
When you have time, It would be recommended to perform a close analysis of
the D-16 to find out more about the terrain of subtle subconscious
expectations regarding personal vehicles. Note that not only Kuja but also
Budha and Chandra (the radix natural 4th lord) occupy Kumbha indriya-lagna .
Shani has tremendous influence, and much of it poses a significant learning
challenge. Shanicarya = the satkona-pati = rogesha-6 = poverty, illness, and
exploitation Shan = the King of Fear. Shani has way too much negative,
scarcity-thinking power in the D-16 .
It will be necessary to move the subconscious fear and resistance into the
field of consciousness in order to perform the"mental surgery" needed to
eradicate (cut the root) of the negative expectations.
