•  The planets signifying the particular Bhavas under consideration
•  Determine the effect of the different aspects upon the Bhava as well as on the signifactors concerned. This will include whether the aspecting planet is in benefic or malefic longitudinal difference, whether it is in retrogression etc. as enunciated in Chapter-4.
1. 1. Having obtained the signifactors, ascertain the conjoined signifactors that will operate upon the particular Bhava under consideration.
2. 2. Finally determine the Dasha, Bhukti and Antara when the signifactors will conjointly operate.

#### Example :

Ketu Dasha balance 0 yrs 5 months 23 days. Lord of lagna is Sun: no planet is in lagna. Sun’s stars are Krittika, Uttaraphalguni and Uttarashadha. Planets, if deposited in these stars will refer the matters signified by the first house. If there is no planet, Sun gives lagna bhava results.

Lagna Kundali

This is similar to a Secretary who has 3 Deputy Secretaries & are given 3 rooms to carry out the instructions of the Secretary. If all 3 rooms are vacant, if no deputy is found, Secretary does the job. Even when they are there, Secretary can do other than what the Deputys do.

There is no planet in Sun’s star. Hence Sun gives lagnas results. Sun is in Moon’s star.

Moon is in 9 and owns 12. Hence Sun mostly refers to the matters signified by 9 and 12, i.e., long journey; staying outside; loss of father: permanent possession of father, separation from father. Judge the death of his father.

Note the sub occupied by Sun. It is in Jupiter’s sub. What can Jupiter do to the 9th house. What can Jupiter do to the 12th house?

Jupiter is in Saturn star. As Saturn is the Badhakasthana Adhipathi to 9, Jupiter indicates Badhaka to father. Therefore, if a constellation indicates father, then the sub of Jupiter in that constellation indicates danger to the father.

Therefore Sun in the constellation of Moon in 9 and sub of Jupiter-the Badhaka to father, promises danger to father.

9th house is owned by Mars. It governs Mrigashira, Chitra and Dhanishtha stars. Rahu and Mercury are in Mars' star, Rahu is in the sub of Mars who denotes longevity to father. Mercury is in the sub of Saturn, Badhaka to father. Hence Rahu is a benefic whereas Mercury is evil.

To the longevity of father, houses 2 and 3 counted from 9th is evil. Both are owned by Venus. Rahu occupies 2 to 9; Mars occupies Venus star; none in Rahu star. Mars is in the sub of Venus. So it is harmful; Rahu is in the sub of Mars. It is good.

Therefore Sun, Mercury and Mars are evil. Venus is in Jupiter sub. Venus is also evil. (Venus is in the constellation of Ketu who represents 4th and 9th houses. Therefore Venus indicates the houses 9, 10 and 3, danger to father)

His father died during Sun Dasha, Mercury Bhukti, Venus Antara in July 1952.

Let us judge 4th house. It is occupied by Saturn and Ketu. It is owned by Mars. So planets in Saturn’s stars, Ketu stars and Mars stars are those which refer 4th house matters.

Venus in Ketu star, Jupiter in Saturn star, Mercury in Mars star indicate 4th house matters.

Venus is in the sub of Jupiter, Marakasthana adhipati and Venus is in Marakasthana to 4.

Jupiter is in Venus sub. It is evil. Mercury is in Saturn sub. As Saturn is in rapt conjunction
