Third Siddhamsha

According to Pt Narasimha Rao, " The 3rd house in D-24 (chart of learning and knowledge) and D-10, (achievements in society) may show one's writing skills.

A3 shows the maya associated with one's writing skills. One may have excellent writing skills, but not write any book.

  • In such a case, people may not really appreciate one's writing skills.
  • One may be an average writer, but end up writing 20 books.
  • In such a case, people may perceive him as a great writer.
  • Thus the exact books written by one decide the perceptions of the world about one's writing skills.
  • So A3 in D-24 and D-10 may show the books or articles written by him.

In this author's [Pt. Narasimha Rao's] D-10, for example, A3 is in Pisces. This can mean that he will be known for some books on saattwik and traditional subjects and astrology certainly fits the bill." ~~ Pt. Narasimha Rao [end quote]

Fifth Siddhamsha

According to Pt Narasimha Rao, In D-24, the varga which offers a microview of the skill of learning, bhava-5 may show intelligence.

  • Rao writes, " Arudha of bhava-5 in D-24 shows the things based on which the world forms an impression about one's intelligence in learning.

  • These impressions are usually formed based on one's performances in examinations, one's scores in tests and one's academic distinctions. So that is what A5 in D-24 shows."
