Sarvam Aroodepi Chinthayeth - Everything is based on Aroodha in Horary, as
everything is based on Lagna in Natal Astrology.
The two Main Ascendants are Aroodha and Udaya ( Lagna).
- Longevity Factors
In Vedic Astrology Horary three types of Formulas are used
Jeeva Sutra - Life Formula -
If the lord of
Aroodha is with the Udaya Lord, in friendly houses, in Aroodha or Udaya,
Jeeva Sutra is caused.
Roga Sutra - Sustaining Formula
If the lord of Aroodha
is powerful and if the lord of Udaya is not, Roga Sutra is caused.
Lagnese Balavarjithe )
If the lords of Aroodha
and Udaya are in exaltation houses or friendly houses, without any
Roga Sutra is caused.
Mrityu Sutra - Death Formula
If the lord of Udaya is
in the debilitation sign of Aroodha lord
or in the inimical
house of the Aroodha lord
or in neutral house of
the Aroodha lord, Mrityu Sutra is caused
If Jeeva Sutra is strong, the native
will have longevity and relief to disease
Dhanamapi Yaso Vardhathe Jeeva Sutre )
If Roga Sutra ,struggle with disease
(Ruk Sootram cheth Dhana Hathi Mano bhanga deha prapeeda )
If Mrityu Sutra - death
to the native.
These are the major indications of
these 3 formulas.
The astro scholar depends on these formulas to predict the present condition
of the native in Medical Horary Astrology. Great care must be exercised while
prognosticating, as wrong reading can wreck havoc on the fame of the
Jupiter's position is
vital, as He indicates Divine Grace. He represents all Deities, all sciences
and all arts ! If he be angular, that is the Redeeming Grace. If He is badly
posited in 6,8,12 houses, it will be difficult for the native to tide over the
crisis. If He becomes the Aroodha or the Udaya lord, again it shows Grace. But
if he owns the negative houses - 6,8,12- then He can devastate ! (
Sarveshwaranaam Dhishanesthi Nithyam....)
IF the lords of Aroodha
and Udaya are 6/8, the astrologer should not proceed with the Prasna. He has
to tell the client to come after some days and to invoke Divine Grace. If they
are 2/12 from each other, the affliction is not so severe, but it is still
IF they are angular,
that sign is good. Or if they are in trines !
