Solstitial Strength ( Ayana Bala )
Evolutionary Philosophy & Astrology has it that each soul is in a particular
state, which can be discerned by divine vision. Divine vision, x-ray like,
penetrates into all matter. It has center everywhere, circumference
nowhere. Knowing the soul-state of the client, the divine knower
prescribes spiritual practices for the client's evolution to Godhood.
Kranti - Declination
Celestial bodies move northwards and southwards of the Celestial
Equator. Declination has been defined as the angular distance from the
Celestial Equator. If the declination is North, then it is regarded as plus
and if it is South, it is regarded as minus.
It is observed that the Sun cuts the Celestial Equator twice yearly, one in
March and the other in September. The declination is always measured in
tropical degrees, that is reckoned from the Vernal Equinoctial Point that
moves. Add to the Sidereal longitudes the Ayanamsa and you get the
tropical longitudes of planets. This has to be done before their Krantis
or declinations are found out.
After cutting the Celestial Equator on March 21, ( Aries ingress or Mesha
Sankrama ), the Sun moves northwards and his positive declination
gradually increases till it is 23 degrees and 27 minutes. Now the Sun is
at the last point of Gemini or 90 degrees from tropical Aries. 24 degrees
Uttara Kranti ( north declination ) means that the Sun has reached the
northernmost point of the Northern Celestial Hemisphere. Then his
declination falls gradually along with his Cancer ingress till it is 0
degress when the Sun will have crossed the Celestial Equator to start
his southerly course. This is the time of the Libra ingress. Now he will
have South Declinaton or Dakshina Kranti. His negative declination grad-
ually increases till it is 23 degrees 27 minutes when the Sun will have
reached 270 degrees or the last point of Sagittarius. Now its Capricorn
ingress begins. The Declinations decreases gradually till it is again Zero
when he will have crossed the Celestial Equator to start his northerly
course. Zero Declination is the Equinox.
Determination of Kranti
Maximum declination is 23 degrees 27 minutes and this was rounded to
24 by Vedic savants. We are enumerating a new set of rules for finding
the Krantis of planets
First convert the sidereal longitudes into their respective tropical
longitudes Find out their Bhujas.
Bhujamsa - Degrees traversed by the planet from the Equinoctail
Determination of Ayana Bala
The astro scholar Kesava has given the formula for Ayana Bala
Ayana Bala = 24 degrees + Kranti
In the case of Venus, Mars & Jupiter their north declinations are additive
and south subtractive.
In the case of Saturn and Moon their north declinations are subtractive
and south additive
For Mercury, both are additive. For Sun, the Ayanabala is always doubled.
