Vedic Astrology Lesson 54   

                                                                Zodiacal  Total Longitude Method




Create the Zodiacal Total Longitude and see whether it falls in the negative or positive regions of the Zodiac.

Certain numbers  are given for certain signs and certain planets. If we multiply the Rasi numbers and the Graha numbers into the longitude of the Ascendant lord, we get the Zodiacal Total Longitude. This Total Longitude is known in Sanskrit as Guna Pindayana.
This is the equation for computing the Zodiacal Total Longitude.
Zodiacal Total Longitude = Long Asc lord * Rasi Gunakara * Graha Gunakara + Long Fifth Lord * Rasi Gunakara * Graha Gunakara


These are the Negative Regions of the Zodiac.

We compute the Doshas or negativites by our Software and an example result is as follows. At one glance, we can know how many negativities are there. Since this program computes the longitude of the 5th lord, it is for Progeny Horary and if positive, we can predict positivity !
