• Amatya karak (AmK)- is the planet with the second highest degree.
  • Bhrati Karak (BK) is the planet with the third highest degree.
  • Matrikarak (MK)- is the planet who is the fourth in this order.
  • Putrakarak (PK)- is the planet who is the next in this order.
  • Gnati Karak (GK)- is the planet with the second lowest degree.
  • Dara Karak (DK)- is the planet with the lowest degree.

If two or three planets in the horoscope are with the same degree, then we need to differentiate between the karakas according to the minutes and seconds.

At this point one controversy needs do be mentioned. Some Astrologers favour the use of eight karakas instead of seven. They claim that there are eight karakas including Pitrukaraka. Rahu becomes the eighth planet to be considered. Most astrologers However, favour the use of seven karakas. Parashar favours the use of combination of Char and Sthir karak instead of eight Karakas.
