Secret of Maha Dasha in Astrology By Sourabh Soni

Power Of Time


Sorry guys I know this time I have taken long time for this article and this is happened only because I am also writing astrology movie script which is more important for me than astrology, but it does not mean that I have forgot you peoples... No...and even when i will quit astrology in future or you can say very soon, then too I will be with you people always, so don't think I forgot you and even it will never happen...Anyways thanku all peoples those sending me feedback's, thanks for your love and support as your feedback's are bringing me back here and insisting me to write another article...!!

Here I am going to write about Maha Dasha System of Vedic astrology and going to share my own nano experience and knowledge about Astrology Dasha system so I hope you are going to like it, anyways let’s start discussion on Maha Dasha –

Maha and Dasha both are Hindi words which means Major time Period –

Maha = Major
Dasha Time Period

Means one planet going to rule your life for long time but for specific time and will affect your life as per their karmic strength. 

Note – As we know that planets signifies our karma hence I used the word karmic strength instead of any other mathematical term of astrology.

Here the first question which comes in my mind is that “Why the Dasha system in Vedic astrology has been introduced by ancient Sages”???

So answer is, whenever you catch any astrologer or judging your own horoscope and when you see any good or bad promises in your horoscope, so the first question which comes in your mind is “When that good or bad event is going to take place in your life”  

Or your question could be anything like when I will get marry, when I will get promotion, When I will be rich, when I will get a car or house…and so many such other questions which starts from “ When “ –
So answer of your “When” is hidden in Dasha system, if there is no Dasha system in astrology then you can’t track timing of any good or bad events which is going to affect your life.
And if I clarify Dasha system karmically then you can say like, Dasha systems tells when your good or bad karma will affect you which are coming in the form of an events into your life, so timing any good or bad event without Dasha is almost impossible in astrology system

As per karma, each one faces good or bad time in their life, few becomes successful and few becomes flop, because you and your life both are associated with time, if your time is favoring you can kick the world but if your time is not favoring you, entire world will start kicking your ass, so success or failure in life just signifies power of time…!!!
Nothing comes before or after time, only we peoples are making mistakes to read events otherwise nothing wrong with astrology, everything is written in perfect manner however calculative part of astrology is so vast that everyone is not capable to handle that mathematics.

Another important point about Dasha system is, you can’t change the time of events even through astrology remedies, as Dasha is purely based on exact longitude of moon which is fixed so changes in sequences of Dasha system or event timing is not possible, so even by hook or by crook you can’t change time…!!!

Each coin has two aspect, so you can say like if life is a coin and your birth chart is one aspect of that coin then time (Dasha) is just another aspect of that coin, and that coin will work only when both the aspect are proper and equally playing their role.

People those believing on their own strength and caliber always ending up life creating their own written destiny, such peoples never waste their time to judging raja yoga, neither judging dhan yoga, nor focusing on any alluring dream promised by horoscope, they just have one specific target in life and they know very well how to achieve it, however world has varieties of people and everyone has their own mind set.

I have seen many miser people living middle or lower class life always seeking luck however throughout life they just feel blockage around them.  
Time never says that I am going to make you flop, or never making any promising for higher success for anyone, however anyone who is respecting time so time is also respecting them by fulfilling their desire and fully supporting them by open arms.  

I know you might be thinking this article is about Maha Dasha then why I am describing meaning of "Time" again and again, so my dear friends each year you get something or you lose something, so actually "Your life is nothing but journey with the time", and that time is described as Dasha system in astrology….!!!

Sages has narrated many Dasha system in Vedic astrology but most trustable system is Vimshottari Dasha as peoples are using it worldwide and getting far better results than other Dasha systems, so we are going to discuss about Vimshottari Dasha only, however I will describe rest other Dasha system also in my separate upcoming articles.  

As I said above, Dasha is purely based on exact longitude of moon which is fixed however during birth only starting point is changing as per moon position. 

Should I clarify more??.... Okay

Sign occupied by moon during birth known as your birth moon sign (Janam Rashi), Nakshatra occupied by moon at the time of birth known as Birth Nakshatra, and on the basis of birth Nakshatra lord your Dasha gets calculated, which gets denoted as balance Dasha, So basically there is no change in basic Dasha sequence which start from Ketu however due to moon position during birth in horoscope balance Dasha lord keeps changing. 

Well, do you know meaning of Balance Dasha???

I means to say there are nine planets in Vedic astrology and all nine planets have own time period but why specific planet becoming your balance Dasha lord, or in other words you can say why journey of your life starting with specific planet only???

Yes it’s a biggest birth secret and mostly peoples ignoring it because each one just want to see whether upcoming Dasha is going to give them result of raja yoga or not, whether will they get money or not…But I have seen most respected and senior astrologers always focus here first because balance Dasha is first brick of Vimshottari Dasha system.  

As per your birth details when you generate your birth chart so you also gets Dasha report along with it to track your life events, and in that report you can see that you have got birth in the balance Dasha of specific planet….  

So my question is still same, why have you born in balance Dasha of specific planet only??? 

Anyways as far as I know I am going to clarify that, as we know nobody gets full first Dasha at the time of birth and there is always something remain which is known as balance (But where that remain balance goes).

Lol… It is said that, In your previous birth you have utilized that Dasha and whatever remain comes as balance Dasha, so this theory gives another question is that “is it the same Dasha in which you died in your previous birth”???

Right now I can’t say 100 % accurately because I am still searching few more proof however still I can say my almost answer is “Yes”.

Because in any horoscope you always found balance Dasha lord associated with one of the Trikona house or with one of Trikona lord, even if you have born in the Dasha of Rahu and Ketu then too either they will be associated with Trikona houses or with one of Trikona lord (through placement, conjunction, or aspect), I am going to clarify this point more in my upcoming articles.

So whenever you are judging Maha Dasha so always check what is that balance Dasha lord doing in your horoscope, check carefully what that planet bringing for you in your horoscope.

It will reveal many of your previous life birth secrets…!!!

Now let’s discuss little about mathematical part of Maha Dasha system -

As we know constellations (Nakshatra) are the main base of Dasha system, and first Nakshatra starting from zero Aries which is known as Ashwini ruled by Ketu, so sequence of Maha Dasha system also gets start by Ketu, refer below table -

As we know there are nine planets and 27 constellations (Nakshatra) in Vedic astrology, and each planet rules 3 Nakshatra (9x3=27).

Refer table and planet section as Maha Dasha comes in same sequence which is starting from Ketu and ending with mercury, now refer ruling time period of planets in same table mentioned in last column, and if you sum up all time ruled by nine planet then it would be 120 year.

So yes, in Vimshottari Dasha system life of the person is considered 120 year, however no one lives till 120 year at present time.

So all 27 constellation completing 360 circle [Set1+Set-2+Set-3 (120+120+120) = 360].

You might be thinking when no one crossing even first set of 120 year then what is the use of set-2 and set – 3????

So answer is, each one does not born in same sequence which is starting from Ketu because it’s all depends on placement of moon in the birth chart (means dasha sequence is fixed but starting point may change due to moon Nakshatra position), and during birth time moon could be in any Nakshatra out of 27 so your Maha Dasha starts with respective set of Nakshatra and with its lord.

Like an example, if in your horoscope moon placed in Bharani Nakshatra so your balance Dasha lord would be Venus, if placed in Swati then balance Dasha lord would be Rahu and if placed in Dhanishta Nakshatra then your journey of life will start with balance Dasha of mars, like in this way you can calculate your balance Dasha lord however in modern time almost all software doing this work so you just need to check your horoscope report to refer Dasha. 
If you are still not getting then feel free to write me or do Google to understand this mathematical part of Dasha system as it’s available over internet, and here you just focus on concept only.  

So Ketu has Dasha of 7 year, after that Venus 20 years, after that Sun 6 year, after that moon 10 year, after that mars 7 years, after that Rahu 18 years, after that Jupiter 16 years, after that Saturn 19 years, and finally mercury 17 years, These are major ruling time period of the planets.

However each Vimshottari Dasha period is further sub divided into nine sub periods which are known as Antar Dasha (Also known as Bhukti), and Antar Dasha period is also further sub divided into nine more sub periods known as Pratyantar Dasha, and Pratyantar Dasha is subdivided into Suksham Dasha, and Suksham Dasha has been divided into Pran Dasha Further, So overall you can say any event whether its small or big is depends on five Dasha periods which are -  

So when these five Dasha (Or you can say planets which are also known as dasha lord and bhukti lords) meets under each other, they bring an event in one’s life.

However many astrologer using Maha Dasha, Antar Dasha and maximum Pratyantar Dasha but avoiding using Sukshma Dasha and Pran Dasha, but Why????

And to get this answer you have to understand the meaning of these five Dasha’s in astrology system and again to understand meaning of these five Dasha you have to understand first what the meaning of event is???

So let’s describe events first –

Marriage is an event, getting job is an event, death is an event, winning any award is an event, getting child is an event, meeting an accident is an event…. Getting a house or a car is an event, and other such small or big situation causing pain or joy in our life known as events…

So my first question is, for all above said events one day is enough…then what is the use of rest Dasha's (Antar, Pratyantar, Suksham, Pran) under Maha Dasha???

Because Maha Dasha is very long time but for marriage one day is enough, and even to die one day is enough, So how will you feel when astrologer says you are going to get marry in Venus Mahadasha, or you are going to die in the Mahadasha of Saturn, So Venus has Mahadasha of 20 years and Saturn has Mahadasha of 19 years, so do you think you need 20 year to get married or 19 year to die???

Note Getting die or other such events required just few min's sometime, however we are considering one day for each such events just like as approximate time. 

So answer is “No”, Basically alone Maha Dasha can’t answer any question….!!!

To minimize this long Maha Dasha time period in astrology we are using Antar Dasha system, So Venus Antar Dasha time is 3 year and 4 month (1217 days) and Saturn Antardasha is approx. 3 years and 2 month (1157 days), so finally 20 year of Venus and 19 years of Saturn time has minimized into approx. 3 yr. and few month.

But still we are not getting our proper answer because again 3 year is quite long time, So Pratyantar Dasha comes into play here and it reduces that 3 year time into few months only and to reduce this few months into specific time we are using suksham Dasha, but to get specific time of events we need to use Pran Dasha….!!!

So basically using Antardasha, Pratyantar Dasha, Suksham Dasha and Pran Dasha is nothing but system of minimizing the longer time of Maha Dasha.

Like If one Maha Dasha have many years, then Antar Dasha reducing this time into few specific years, Pratyantar Dasha reducing this time again from few years to few months, And suksham Dasha is reducing this few month to specific month, and finally using Pran Dasha you can get that exact near about time of any events.    
So finally you have to apply this deeper calculation from Maha Dasha to Suksham Dasha if you have to point out any event exactly -   

Note - I never used suksham Dasha and Pran Dasha so can’t tell ruling time of both, however if you want to know then use Google to search...!!

Now the another question which comes in mind if we can locate near about time or specific dates of any event then why many astrologers (including me) are not using sukshma Dasha and Pran Dasha??

So answer is, even difference of few second in your birth time creates huge difference in sukshma dasha & pran dasha calculation, hence non accuracy of time is main reason behind avoiding these lower Dasha’s and maximum astrologers avoiding sukshma & Pran Dasha due to inaccuracy of birth time only, as only highly expert person like Sir K.N. Rao using these sukshma & Pran Dasha because he is an expert in rectifying horoscopes till exact degree, however we people are just like a newborn baby in astrology.

However without Sukham dasha and pran dasha astrologers are still predicting “Near about time” successfully by using Mahadasha, AntarDasha, and Pratyantar Dasha only 

So here in this article we will discuss about MahaDasha and AntarDasha only.

Whenever any MahaDasha starts so first Antar Dasha of under any Mahadasha belong to MahaDasha lord itself and same happens for other bhukti's also, later one by one rest eight planets comes in sequence to give their result under MahaDasha lord.

Do you know importance of Maha dasha lord???

Yes, Maha Dasha has prime importance into Dasha system because one planet through Maha dasha rule your life for longer time period and affecting you according to their placement and position in to your horoscope.

Apart from Mahadasha lord rest 8 planets also giving their result during their bhukti’s under Mahadasha lord but still Mahadasha lord have its own importance and influence, basically Maha dasha lord is nothing but prime ruler for specific time into your life.

You can understand above concept in another way, like we have several government officers and ministers those are ruling our country but still Narendra Modi is prime minister and known as top ruler of India so power and influence of Narendra Modi is quite strong than other ministers.

Like in USA there are many other government officers and ministers but still President Barack Obama is the top ruler, and no one can go against him till the time he is on power.

Note – Narendra Modi is prime minister of India (as on 2016), and Barack Obama is president of United States (as on Apr 2016).

So same happens in astrology also, Means till the time Mahadasha is running so Mahadasha lord is in power, or you can say Mahadasha lord is main in charge of your horoscope till the time Mahadasha is going on.

Like if you have one or two good yoga causing planet in your birth chart but if they are enemy of Mahadasha lord or not fulfilling the required criteria from the angle of Mahadasha lord, then they planet can’t deliver their auspicious result just because Mahadasha lord is not allowing them to deliver.

So can you think to get higher success in life in above scenarios?? .....NO....Never....!!!
Anyways, are you aware about Mapping of Mahadasha system in astrology???

Yes, Mapping has all answer of your questions related to “success in professional life”.

Let me clarify it more –

Do you know, 50 % of your life success depends on Maha Dasha only???

Remember here I am not talking about life, here I am talking about “Success in Life”.

Now suppose, an average lifespan of each person is approx. 80 Year, and we also know that first 20 year of life cycle are reserved for study only, however actual life starts after education life when person gets degree and moving from education life to professional life.

And last 20 year also gets reserved for old age so if we are cutting 20 year for childhood and 20 year for old age from 80 year life, then what remain is only mid 40 year….So who is ruling that 40 year of midlife??, because your professional success will purely depend on them…!

Note – Politics is only a field which is little exceptions as in politics mostly peoples gets in power even after age of 70-80 (Like Atal Bihari Bajpayi) and as we know that out of billions only one become prime minister or president however for remain 99.9 % public midlife is very important, few also become business tycoon or rich in old age but again ratio is very less as its happens with only one or two from millions, hence here we will discuss about mid 40 year only.

From 21 year to till 60 year (which is approx 40 year) if you could not do anything significant in these mid 40 years of life, then you are just going to lose time, as year by year time will pass away and you will become flop in life.     
So Mahadasha coming in midlife is always very prominent, because this is only time when either person become super flop or becoming celebrity by just crossing all obstacles.  

And success and failure is just a game of planets because no matter how strong your horoscope is, if Dasha system is not supporting horoscope then getting higher success in professional life becomes questionable.

Note – Basically in each birth chart Mahadasha is always mapped correctly by destiny because it is delivering result of both good or bad karma, however I want to say correct dasha mapping means dasha of favorable planet should be mapped into midlife when person jump into professional life from education life because that is the time when each one looking higher professional success.  

I know now you might be thinking, how to check whether Dasha system is supporting your horoscope or not???  

So I would like to say again this answer is hidden under mapping system of Dasha, anyways just keep reading you will get your answer automatically. 

See basically, Lagna charts gives you promises, divisional charts confirm fulfillment of that promises and Dasha tells when they promises are going to be fulfill…!!

But here main question is, each one has own life pattern and few born in lower or middle class family remains lower or middle class man throughout life and even till the death, 
And this is happen due to incorrect mapping of Dasha and missing transit on specific point.

Note – Some time lower class person remain lower class till last age, few lives very common and similar life (Like getting education, then joining government job, then getting marry, then kids and managing their life, later retirement and final death, so nothing big in life however few comes for a purpose in earth like Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda etc, few born in lower class family achieve great height in life, so basically they have got a life pattern and each one has their own life pattern), so Judging life pattern in another concept which I am going to clarify in one of my upcoming article.

Incorrect mapping means “Dasha should be in sequence as per the promises in horoscope” 

Suppose in any horoscope yoga karaka is exalted and well placed and forming many Yoga's which means yoga karaka planet is signifying many promises for successful career in birth chart however Dasha of yoga karaka planet is either missing or in many cases I have seen that Dasha of yoga karaka planet either coming very early in life or coming very late like in old age when it has no use, because if yoga karaka planet has to perform well, then its mandatory to get Mahadasha of yoga karaka planet in mid age.

Note – Maha Dasha of yoga karaka planet or any other favorable planet coming in old age can also give you gains or success but what is the meaning of such success because if you spending entire life in poverty or misery???, actually such Dasha is known as compensation given by the destiny, so if you need a good life then focus on midlife is required.  

See basically in each horoscope, each planet have their own capability in vedic astrology –
And all planet can’t be good and strong or same time all planet can’t be bad or weak in any horoscope, so few will be strong and positive always and few will be weak and negative, So If your horoscope is promising few great yoga and that Dasha’s are coming in the right age, means if you getting two or three Maha Dasha of positive and strong planet then without any doubt you will become successful person, even one big positive Mahadasha of supportive planet in midlife is enough capable to give you great career heights.   
However no matter how professionally successfully you are since childhood, just one bad Mahadasha is enough to block success from life, and can give huge fall.

Then such promises of horoscope known as false promises of horoscope, because horoscope is promising many Yogas and success in life but the planets those causing that yoga are not coming with their Maha Dasha in midlife, and this is only a reason that maximum raja yoga does not work in modern time due to incorrect mapping of Dasha and missing transit, because if dasha is not coming so it would be like planets have got their job which they are signifying in birth chart however they are not getting time to perform.
So mapping of Maha Dasha according to promises available in your horoscope is very important and almost giving a clear indication about successful, medium class or flop life.

Because correct mapping of Dasha signifies result of your good deeds are coming in right manner and on correct time in the form of life success…!!!
I hope now you understand meaning of  “ Maha Dasha Mapping” in astrology system.

Should I share few example of Maha Dasha mapping???

Okay I am giving you two examples of celebrities, like each one knows Sachin Tendulkar and Saif Ali Khan in India and even in abroad also people recognizing them as both are indian celebrities, I am not publishing their horoscope here because article is already too long and still I have to use few more images as example here, so if you want to see their horoscopes then please refer my previous written articles where I have used their horoscope.  

Now see - Sachin Tendulkar has Mercury, Jupiter, Rahu and Ketu four debilitated planets in his horoscope, and Sun and mars exalted, Sachin Tendulkar wanted to become a cricketer, Sachin was born in 3 year, 1 month and 8 days balance Dasha of Venus (Which is sitting in 10th house with Sun and connected with Trikona lord Mars through aspect), after that sun Maha Dasha came in his life which is always very small Maha Dasha of six year, after sun Dasha, next moon Maha Dasha came in his life when he became 9 year old when he started developing interest in cricket world, when he 19 year old his exalted mars Maha Dasha (Mars is karaka for cricket) started where he got tremendous glory and worldwide recognition as mars in sitting in 7th house with Jupiter in exalted sign, After that Rahu Maha Dasha started and if you check in D-10 chart then Rahu is exalted and sitting with mars in 10th house of Dashmasa chart.

So actually if you see his life then his glory has started from mars Maha Dasha and meet an end in Rahu Maha Dasha which is going to end in 2017. Mars Dasha was excellent for his career when he got massive success and become Indian highest century hitter, however Rahu Maha Dasha given glory as being exalted in 10 house of D-10 but debilitated in D-1 so also delivered many setbacks, so that was power of Maha Dasha mapping because can you think if instead of exalted mars if he was getting Maha Dasha of debilitated mercury or debilitated Ketu in that time so can he become such a great emperor of cricket world???

Answer is no….Never…!!!

Take another example of Saif Ali khan, the Indian film star who has born in Nawab family, and wished to become a film star, Saif Ali khan was born in the balance Dasha of Moon which is sitting in 8th house of inheritance and getting an exalted aspect of mars from second house, so by birth he received large inheritance as mars and Moon connection makes Laxmi yoga in Vedic astrology, After moon Dasha he faced Maha Dasha of mars, and after mars Mahadasha Rahu Dasha was started, as if you check his birth chart where Rahu placed in 9th house in Mool Trikona sign and getting aspected by two benefic Jupiter and mercury however in D-10 chart Rahu is exalted in 3rd house of media, and after Rahu next Dasha was Jupiter which is occupied own fiery ninth sign and sitting in 10th house of D-10 and sitting in 5th house in D-1 and getting exalted aspect of Saturn.

So basically he has Saturn, Mars, and Venus debilitated in his chart, and Dasha of debilitated planet is always questionable, but as Dasha mapping was perfect and he got favorable Dasha of Rahu (Rahu is karaka of glamour), & Jupiter (which is sitting in 5th house of film in D-1) and both are well placed in D-10 so they both have settled his life.
So who is ruling your midlife means Maha Dasha after the age of 20 and before age of 60, so these 40 years is very important in life.

If Maha Dasha has been mapped properly and fulfilling the promises done by birth chart, then “Yes” you can live big or royal life. 

Because each Mahadasha lord along with sub lords signifies a plan and going to act as per placement and power in birth chart.

Hence Dasha mapping is very important in astrology, and almost in each horoscope mapping of Dasha is almost giving clear indication of “how successful your professional life would be”…so mapping always should be in sequence and as per the horoscope promises…!!!

Because each horoscope has good or bad planet both (All planet can’t be good), so if as per horoscope Dasha of unfavorable planet is coming in midlife, which is almost a clear indication of struggle, however even single one big Mahadasha is enough capable to give settlement in life. 
Now let’s discuss something about karmic system working behind Maha Dasha - 

As I always discuss little karmic part of astrology in my each article, so I would like to discuss here too, Well, do you know why people gets such a huge successful Dasha, or few only gets half profit, so what is the karmic reason behind that ???

However before disclosing this secret you have to understand the meaning of successful Dasha first along with few more little karmic concepts, so let’s discuss that first –

So if anyone gets huge money, fame, power and status in any specific time periods (In astrology this time known as Dasha), so we can say that it was result of favorable Dasha.

As we know our life is purely based on previous life karma and as I mentioned above that Dasha merely signifies time of your karma manifestation (It could be good or bad depends on horoscope).

So what brings fame, money, power & status in life???

Note I am not talking about planetary combinations here, I am just talking about karma responsible for such things. 

So answer is - The karma which you do for yourself only, reward of that karma will affect you only, and the karma which you do for others so rewards of such karma comes as raja yoga in horoscope which signifies worldly recognition and gaining respect and honor from others because your karma now affecting others life and you are gaining something through others…

Because if I ask what is basic meaning of power and status, so answer is also very simple when you get power or any status in society or in your work area so your decision will impact others life too, that is the only meaning of power and Status where you gets authority to influence others life because after gaining power you become decision maker.

I am also giving few more examples so that you can understand karmic reason of correct Maha Dasha mapping….but don’t apply it blindly as I am just giving an example for your understanding only –

Basically one MahaDasha delivering good or bad result of many karma's that is the main reason under one MahaDasha rest other planets also comes to deliver their results. So as I said the karma which you do for yourself only so reward of that karma will affect your life only but these karma is not able to make you celebrity. Like one person born in middle class family getting education, joining job, getting married, running his family throughout life, fulfilling all family responsibility and later dying (basically it’s a pattern and almost 60 % of world population gets this pattern only), so when such souls gets next birth so they become enough wealthy to fulfill their responsibility of present birth, but as he didn’t do anything for needy peoples and never helped others or in short you can say that your karma has never impacted others life so how can you expect to become super rich or getting higher fame or high power and status in your life…and your birth chart along with Dasha mapping tells all these secrets… !!!
If there are many Yogas in Kundli but if you are not getting correct Dasha in correct time in life, which signifies unfulfilled promises of previous birth, however if raja yoga is available in birth chart and correct Maha Dasha coming in at the right time in life which is known as correct Maha Dasha mapping which is promising successful or may be royal life.

Because each horoscope has raja yoga, but each one does not become celebrity or getting higher success in profession life, and this happen due to improper Dasha mapping in your horoscope.

So If you have never did any karma which are influencing others life positively then how can you expect to rule others life.

You take an example of bill gates, Salman khan or anyone who is helping others, so what are they doing??

They are just changing others life and helping needy peoples, so destiny is rewarding them also, in such cases Maha Dasha comes in right time and peoples takes advantage of time and making their life big and royal. 

Even small help of others never goes waste, and destiny rewards surely.

One more thing, “Whom you are helping and when you are helping” also makes huge difference, like if you helped 75 year an old man and donated money for his medical treatment and however after one year he died so overall your help benefited him just for a year, however if you helped an uneducated kid who is not able to get education and you paying his fees each year so overall you changed his entire life, so you will also get benefits according to it.

So Mahadasha is nothing but just a time signifying result of karma delivery, if past life positive karma is huge so Mahadasha will also rewards huge success, if karma is average so Mahadasha will be average and if karma was bad so Maha Dasha gives pain and sorrow, so correct Maha Dasha mapping in very important and it should be according to your horoscope.
Note – In any articles whatever karmic lesson I tells it’s just applicable for all, means for  male or female both, it does not matter if I am just writing “He” so female will not be affected…so karma and result of karma is same for both the genders.

Now the main article starts from here as I know everyone just want to judge their upcoming Maha Dasha and Antardasha, and whatever I have written above was just a theoretical part of this article, Now I will tell you the easy method to judging Dasha and Bhukti, but before discussing that I would like to share few important points which everyone should remember before judging any mahadasha and antardasha -

1 - Each events has a time so you will get everything on prescribed time according to your horoscope, nothing comes before or after time...!!!

2 – Mahadasha of debilitated planet mostly signifies struggle if coming in childhood, it may give you few hardship to learn lesson from the life (because there is no better teacher than life) and debilitation is just a single factor, so never afraid from bad times because it was just a bad time not a bad life.

Note – Debilitated planet may perform very good if getting Bhanga and well placed in D-9, D-10 (But should not be debilitated in D-9 and D-10 again) and Dasha of debilitated coming is coming in later age, Like Narendra Modi become PM in the Maha Dasha of debilitated Moon, however moon was placed in 11th house in D-9 and D-10 both, and moon itself sitting with Mars in Lagna chart so getting Neech Bhanga, Hence Never fear just to see maha dasha of debilitated planet because overall analysis can tell you clear picture.   

3 - Even Mahadasha of most benefic planet Jupiter may give severe hardship, so never judge Maha dasha on the basis of single factor.

4 - If Maha Dasha lord and Antar Dasha lord both are debilitated (Especially if both are enemy and debilitated in multiple Varga) then be little alert as these signifies little hardship.

5 - While judging Maha Dasha lord in Navamsha also check for Vargottam and Pushkar degree or Pushkar Bhag because it would be additional auspicious strength for Maha Dasha lord.

6 - Remember few pairs (Rahu+Ketu or Ketu+Rahu, Saturn+Venus or Venus+Saturn, Jupiter+Venus or Venus+Jupiter, Rahu+Saturn or Saturn+Rahu) whenever you are facing maha dasha or antar dasha under each other of these planets, always beware.

7 Never be frightened too much if you see Mahadasha of 6th, 8th and 12th lord is coming because it’s just a single factor and there are lot of parameters required to give final answer.

8 - Even dasha of badly placed planet may produce some good result in few area, No dasha giving happiness throughout ruling time and same no dasha giving pains throughout ruling time, because there are several bhukti’s of other planet which also delivering their result under Mahadasha lord and each planet have their own power to influence your life.

9 First Bhukti (Sub period) under any Mahadasha belong to Mahadasha lord itself, and Maha dasha is very long time (Like Saturn 19 years, Venus 20 years, Mercury 17 years etc.) even if person facing favorable dasha so in most of the cases I have seen life does not change from the first day and sometime half of the Maha dasha passes away without giving anything significant, so just wanted to say don’t make your mood to get bad or good from any Mahadasha by the day one itself.

10 - Never expect everything from one mahadasha as there is no guarantee that Mahadasha lord will give you all what you are expecting from it, it will just give you only what it has decided to give you I mean it is just delivering result as per the promises in the horoscope.

11 As lord of 2nd house and lord 7th house are known as Marak planet, however Dasha of Marak planet always does not give Marak effects, and apart from Marak effect they can also deliver something good or bad related to money, wealth and spouse or business as 2nd & 7th houses signifies many thing and dasha lord influencing everything which are coming under it.

12 – Dasha of the karaka planet during midlife is very important for the people those have specific aim, as it may trigger something prominent and desired success if well placed in D-1, D-9 & D-10, Like mars Mahadasha did for Sachin Tendulkar as mars is karaka for sports, So if anyone have specific aim then check if karaka dasha is coming during midlife. (Mercury is karaka for business, Venus is karaka for films and entertainment, Rahu is karaka for glamour, Sun is karaka for politics etc.).

13 All nine bhukti’s (Antar Dasha) under any Maha Dasha can’t be good, so always apply all required parameters to judge which Antar Dasha is favorable under Maha Dasha from the angle of Maha Dasha lord.

14 - Yoga karaka planet always favorable in Maha dasha but to get 100 percent from yoga karaka planet its required to be away from malefic association in D-1, D-9 (which is possible rarely) because affliction reduces power of yoga karaka hence its very imp that yoga karaka should be away from malefic and should be mapped in middle age otherwise in many cases I have seen even dasha of yoga karaka planet is useless and not giving expected results....however in few cases even hopeless planet may give windfall success, so always judge carefully...!!!

15 Exaltation and debilitation stage of planet is very important in Maha dasha system, because in maximum cases dasha of an exalted planet giving good result if placed in Kendra trikona however to get good result from dasha of debilitated planet (even placed in Kendra and trikona) several other good & supportive parameter required.

16 - Mahadasha of 10th lord or planet associated with 10th house of D-1 chart, if well placed in D-10 (Like occupied fire sign, sitting in 1st or 10th house of D-10) may promises great professional heights.

17 - Mahadasha of key planet is very important (key planet means which control your entire horoscope), this is something different concept which I will discuss in separate upcoming article.

18 - Retrograde planets are cruel but still Never underestimate the dasha of retrograde planet, yes this dialogue belongs to movie of Shahrukh khan and he became super star in the dasha of retrograde Jupiter only...that’s why I am using his dialogue... Even Salman khan, Amitabh Bachchan has become super star in Mahadasha of retrograde planet only, but it does not mean that each retrograde planet will do well in Maha dasha but my purpose behind writing this point is to say retrograde planet always not bad as I have seen many astrologers consider retrograde planet weak (I don’t know why) and treating them very horror.

19 Varsha Phal is bit different concept then Mahadasha, as Maha dasha is all about major time period of specific planet, however Varsha phal means role and result of nine planet in a particular year, So don’t merge both the concept as Varsha phal has its own importance and getting used to see success or fall in specific year given by the nine planet.

20 During judgement of dasha also use transit because if dasha gives an event then transit activate that event... hence dasha and transit should be used together.

21 - Never forget that One day is enough to make or break your entire life… and this one day is hidden behind all five dasha means Maha dasha, Antar Dasha, Pratyantar Dasha, Sukshma Dasha & Pran Dasha, (means unless and until you are not calculating these all so you can’t track that event exactly).

22 - Final point is, No matter how good horoscope you have if time (Dasha) is not supporting you can’t rise anyhow, however no matter how weak horoscope you have, just one good favorable dasha is enough to give you sufficient rise, even if you are facing worse since childhood and not getting way to move further in life however if Mahadasha mapping is correct and favorable time coming in midlife, so it will give you a way to cross all obstacle. 

But it’s always depends on the caliber of your horoscope whether dasha will give you windfall success or going to give an easy success which you deserve....!!!

Now let’s discuss the parameters which are require to judge any Maha Dasha and Antar Dasha, because if you are expecting good time in future then you have to judge below parameters

1 – Check Dasha lord behavior with Ascendant (whether it’s benefic for ascendant of malefic for ascendant) 

2 – Check houses ruler ship of the planet along with their influence on other houses and planet.

3 – If Maha Dasha lord is getting aspected by another planet or conjunct with other planet then check that planet behavior with Maha Dasha lord.

4Check Maha Dasha and Antar Dasha lord situation in Navamsha chart (D-9 Chart), and also judge the same from moon chart (Chandra Kundli).

Note – Overall you can say first you have to judge Maha Dasha lord position and power in D-1 and D-9 both the charts.

5 Where ever Maha lord is sitting, just make that house as ascendant and adjust remain planets in respective houses accordingly, and we are doing it just to see planetary house position from the angle of Maha Dasha lord.

6 – Now check other planetary houses position from Maha Dasha lord, whether they are sitting in Kendra Trikona places from each other, or forming any shad-Ashtak yoga.

Note – Shad Ashtak yoga means if any planet placed in 6th & 8th from Maha Dasha lord (Shad means Six & Ashtak means eight) so it means its forming Shad Ashtak relation with Maha Dasha lord, Shad Ashtak situation of any planet signifies little struggle and hardship.  

7 – 2/12 position is also considered harmful so don’t ignore that too (Means if Antar Dasha lord placed in 12th house counted from Maha Dasha lord, means that planet is forming 2/12 position from Maha Dasha lord)…!!!

8 – Check if Maha Dasha lord is forming any Raja yoga or Dhan yoga or any bad yoga because during the Maha Dasha you may experience these result too but must check power of yoga before making any prediction (If it is Raja yoga then check how strong it is, and if its bad yoga check if any saving factor is available there which is reducing malefic effect of bad yoga), one more thing is that any yoga which is repeating itself in D-9 & D-10, and if Maha Dasha lord also causing two or more good yoga, and Dasha lord well placed in D-1, D-9, D-10 then yes such Dasha may bring something booming result for you...!!!

9 – During Maha Dasha judgement, be specific with your requirement from Dasha lord, mostly males wants career heights from Maha Dasha and female focusing on marriages, few looking for power and status and few looking fame or money, So always be specific with your requirement as it will help you to focus on concern planet bhukti’s.

10 – If you are judging Maha dasha with specific aim as mentioned in rule no-9, then please use concern divisional chart to get clearer picture, like if looking for marriage then please focus on D-9 chart, if looking for professional success, must judge dasha and Antar dasha lord position in D-10, if looking for power and status please use Ghatika lagna chart, If need fame then use Arudha, and use D-4 if query is related to buying home or car etc., So overall you can say judging Maha dasha and Antar dasha lord through concern divisional chart can give you specific answer related to success.

I am giving one example for marriage as these days many wants answer related to marriage only, See basically what happened when any Maha dasha comes, take an example of Venus and suppose Venus is sitting in fifth house of birth chart and aspecting 11th house through 7th aspect and we know that Venus Maha dasha is about 20 years, During entire Maha dasha of Venus fifth house and 11th house (even all the houses which are associated with Maha dasha lord) will be fixed. And first Antar dasha lord under Venus Maha dasha will be Venus itself, so it will influence 5th and 11th house, however when next Antar dasha comes under Venus Maha dasha and if that planet is associated with 2nd or 7th or 11th houses, then they can trigger events related to involve houses and marriage belongs to these houses only. 

This happen for all Maha dasha and Antar dasha, means houses associated with Maha dasha lord will be fixed till entire Maha dasha however rest houses also comes in picture by Antar dasha & Pratyantar dasha lord and events related to concern houses comes into life.

By same method you can also judge profession like if Maha dasha lord Venus is sitting in 11th house and influencing 5th house however if Antar dasha lord also associated with 10th or 11th house so it may bring something good related to profession, and if Antar dasha lord is associated with 6th, 8th, and 12th houses along with 10th, then it may bring professional setbacks. 

So main houses of Maha dasha lord are always fixed however as per Antar dasha lords remain houses also comes in picture one by one.

11 - Apply Dasha Varga concept.

Note – Almost each horoscope has raja yoga so most peoples judging Maha Dasha to see whether they are going to get effect of any raja yoga or not, so applying dasa Varga concept can tell you the level of raja yoga, Actually sometime its only dasa Varga tells whether Maha Dasha lord bringing any raja yoga effect or just signifying fake promises in horoscope, anyways I have entire long article based on dasa Varga so will not discuss much here. 

12 - Use Isht Phal & Kasht Phal Graph along with Shadbal to see Isht Phal and Kasht Phal Level of planet.

Note – Many peoples even those does not have any big aim in life and just living normal life and want to know just one answer whether my upcoming Dasha will be good or bad, So using Isht phal and Kasht phal graph you can get that answer(however its always not accurate hence use carefully), however still I would say where ever I have seen Dasa Varga and Isht phal, Kasht phal concept working, there I am getting finest result, So please don’t ignore, however if you want to know how to get dasa Varga, Isht phal and Kasht phal chart so please use “Jagannath Hora” as its free software, you will get all details in that software. 

13 – Finally apply transit (Never ignore transit as it has its own importance).

Many astrologers avoiding transit during Maha dasha judgement (I don’t know why) but it has its own importance, because the day you come in earth so in your horoscope everything is gets denoted as per your karma which you going to get in specific time (Dasha), So basically everything is fixed since the day of your birth and your dasha mapping is been done accordingly, hence we say that promises and dasha mapping is already fixed.

Suppose if you have bought a fridge and to run that fridge you would require electricity, so getting any promises is birth chart like a fridge and Maha dasha is like electricity then transit is like a power switch, and everyone knows that fridge and electricity is useless if Switch is not on.

As I written above, sometime what happened, there are many raja yoga’s are available in birth chart and Maha dasha is also coming but not delivering the promised result and this is happen because transit is missing on concern point, Because as I said everything is fixed since the day you born, when you reach on specific age of your life transit comes and activate the events, that’s why I said “Your life is nothing but journey with the time”.

I know many peoples are looking Raja yoga activation time in internet, so whenever this activation word comes in mind so always remember it’s purely depends on dasha and transit both, because if dasha brings an events in life then transit is just activating that so transit is nothing but an activation switch as your karma become activate through transit which you gets through dasha, but remember Transit cant give you which dasha is not promising and dasha cant give you which your horoscope is not promising.

14 – Now do evolution how many parameters your birth chart is fulfilling, if its fulfilling maximum then it’s good for you.

15 – Sometime it’s happen that your chart does not fulfill all required parameters or just fulfilling minimum or you can say just one parameter –

Then too I would like to say don’t be sad, as just one day is enough capable to change your life, you just pray that one day falls under that bhukti.

Now let’s apply all above concept in one horoscope so it will make your all doubts clear -

Case Study

Refer above horoscope, we are judging Jupiter Dasha of this person as he has recently finished Jupiter Dasha so let’s apply rule number 1, 2, and 3 here, as Jupiter was the Maha Dasha lord which is ruling 6th and 9th house for cancer ascendant so as being ninth lord Jupiter considered benefic for this ascendant, Jupiter is sitting in 2nd house in Magha Nakshatra and conjuncted with 5th lord Mars and Rahu and both are also sitting in Magha Nakshatra but here we will consider Jupiter afflicted by Mars and Rahu, mars is on 00:34 degree and Jupiter is on 13:04 degree so they are bit far but Rahu is very close to Jupiter as sitting in 12:08, so forming very strong Guru Chandaal Yoga, refer his Maha Dasha table -

Person born under balance Dasha of mars (4 months 27 days) and Mars itself a Trikona lord and conjuncted with 9th lord in 2nd house.

Jupiter is sitting 3rd from moon chart which signifies self efforts, Actually Rahu should act little favorable here as connected with two Trikona lord in wealth house, however Rahu Dasha was started when he was just 4 month old and finished when he was 18 year and 4 months old however as Rahu influencing family house so during Rahu Maha Dasha person shifted to abroad with entire family, later his Jupiter Dasha started.

So till Venus Antar Dasha under Jupiter Maha Dasha nothing significant happened as he wanted to join film industry however did get desired success and started doing astrology, his main success came in Moon, Mars and Rahu sub periods so let’s move ahead and apply rest parameters, lets apply rule number 4 and judge maha dasha lord in navamsa -

In Navamsa chart, Maha Dasha lord Jupiter is sitting in 11th house with Rahu in exalted sign. Now apply rule number five here and where ever Dasha lord’s sits make that house as ascendant and adjust rest planet accordingly, In above case Maha Dasha lord Jupiter is sitting in 2nd house, So set second house as ascendant and adjust rest planets accordingly, So from the angle of Maha Dasha lord chart will be like below -

Now apply rule number 6 & 7 here and see how many planets are placed in Kendra Trikona from Maha Dasha lord Jupiter. 

So here Mars, Rahu, Venus, Mercury and Ketu are placed Kendra position from Maha Dasha lord, Saturn is placed in 2nd house from Maha Dasha lord, Sun is in 3rd house and moon placed in 11th house, no planet is placed 6th, 8th and 12th house from the Maha Dasha lord, So that is other planetary position from the angle of Maha Dasha lord.

Now apply Rule number 8 & 9 in main birth chart, and check Maha Dasha lord forming Dhan yoga as being 9th lord conjuncted with another Trikona lord mars in 2nd house in main birth chart, Jupiter is also involve in Guru Chandaal yoga, Now we want to judge his professional success so let’s open D-10 chart also -

Note – Remember guys, there is a process to judge career in astrology and there is a way to read D-10 chart, so if you are judging profession so never jump on D-10 directly, however here I am just discussing on Maha Dasha factor hence using point to point conversation, so please keep the same in mind.   

Now see his D-10 chart and check if any yoga repeating itself in D-1, D-9 and D-10??

Yes, Mercury and Venus Conjunction and Guru Chandaal Yoga is available in all, however in all three charts Jupiter is quite powerful so Jupiter have full control on Rahu, and if you see D-10 chart where Jupiter and Rahu occupied fiery sign Sagittarius in seventh house of masses.

Now use dasa Varga concept here and refer his Dasa Varga chart below -    

If you see his dasa Varga chart, so actually Jupiter occupied highest five Vargas, means again Jupiter position is quite good here, Now use Isht Phal and Kasht Phal Table -

Here Jupiter has Higher Isht phal points and Lower Kasht phal point which is again good, and Jupiter is strongest planet is shadbal also, now if you doing evaluation so you can see clearly that Jupiter is fulfilling maximum required parameters. 

Now see result of Jupiter Mahadasha on his life, As I said he wanted to join film industry, however didn’t get any desired success on starting Dasha of Jupiter, However his life started changing since 2009 when moon Dasha was started under Jupiter Dasha and he joined astrology, and Mars and Rahu Antar Dasha given him worldwide popularity along with money and Social Status in the field of astrology and person become great astrologer of modern time.

All happened due to perfect Dasha mapping as favorable Dasha of Jupiter came at right time in life and given settlement, His most of the success came in Antar Dasha of Moon, Mars and Rahu, however if you check D-1 and D-9 so all three planets are placed in Kendra and Trikona position from Jupiter (which is Maha Dasha lord), A Person who was struggling in career and didn’t get success in film industry, sudden got worldwide recognition with unexpected success in the field of astrology.  

However if you thinking why he got success with such a strong social status in Jupiter Dasha and specially in the field of astrology instead of film industry, So refer his birth chart where Ghatika Lagna falling in 9th house and getting aspected by mars, ninth house where Ghatika Lagna falls is getting ruled by Maha Dasha lord Jupiter itself, again Ghatika Lagna associated with Navamsha Lagna and if we checking his D-10 (Profession) then Ghatika Lagna falling in 8th house (House of occult and astrology) of D-10 chart so power and status came in his life through occult, Overall his life story is quite clear.

I got this horoscope through one of my Canadian friend, as I was doing practical for my Ghatika Lagna article, so I thought to publish this horoscope as an example here, I wanted to publish few more horoscope but I can’t due to length of this article which is already exceeding blogger limit, but don’t worry I have few more article based on Maha Dasha so I will cover this gap through them.

Anyways keep doing karma, as planets are also dependent on us to act, because planets always required - 

Now let’s discuss final point of this article - 

Whenever you are tracking any major events or if any event which is visible in horoscope so always cross check the same through other Dasha system apart from Vimshottari Dasha, because locating any event through Vimshottari Dasha is just like using one angle, however using other Dasha system to track same events can give you exact confirmation as almost all expert astrologers using minimum three or more Dasha system to confirm one event, Hence apart from Vimshottari Dasha, you can use Ashtottari Dasha, Jaimini Dasha, yogini Dasha, Narayan Dasha etc.  

Using multiple Dasha system is like checking one event through multiple angle, which is giving surety, because Vimshottari Dasha system is being used worldwide but still can’t answer everything with 100 % accuracy, otherwise sage Parashara had not introduced many other Dasha system in astrology if Vimshottari could answer all.

There are 3 more points about Maha Dasha which I am not sharing here right now as i would like to do little more research on them before writing so either I will update that points later in same article or will discuss on separate article.

Now conclusion, never ignore power of time because time is a real “Almighty” and have enough power to make a beggar to king and a king to a beggar. 

When bad time came even great kings Pandava’s (Characters of Mahabharata) was working as slave, King Harish Chandra became Chandaal (Chandaal means a person working in funeral place).

Even take example from modern time, richest Subrat Rai Sahara is in jail (Imprisoned), Asharam Baapu lost his all-empire, Kingfisher owner Vijay Mallya (Who is famous as a king of good times) lost his life race by time and facing riches to rag and left India with remain wealth, that’s the power of time.

So time has no friend, it’s just delivering rewards of your karma, No matter how worse life you are living if time starts favoring you so it will recover everything and when time starts acting negative even kings become slave. 
When time is powerful your biggest mistakes will be taken as joke however when time is negative even jokes will be taken as fault...

In Astrology, “Time means Dasha”, So never afraid from good or bad Dasha because either it will give you pleasure or give you pain but will surely teach you something, basically time never comes in equal format as it has zig zag nature or you can say it always signifies ups and downs and everyone knows that ups and downs are part of each never afraid by good or bad dasha because -
