Vedic Astrology  Lesson 60   

                                                              Definitions of the Great Equations of Horary Astrology



We have said that there are 3 Formulae in Horary.

They are Life Formula - Jeeva Sutra, Disease Formula - Roga Sutra and Death Formula - Mrityu Sutra


Repercussions of the Three Formulae


If we get Life Formula or Jeeva Sutra, it is excellent. There will be increase of longevity, wealth, fame etc

Ayur Veeryam Dhana mapi Yaso Vardhathe Jeeva Sutre

If we get Disease Formula, it is medium. There may be blocks in the financial sphere, mental rut and physical affliction.

Ruk Sootram cheth Dhana Hathi mano bhanga deha prapeeda

If we get Death Formula, it is very bad. Indicates increase of fear, disease, hindrance in profession  and death.

Bhee ruk vriddhi mrithir api mana karma bhangyothya Sutre


Relationship between the Three Ascendants


The relationship between the Aroodha and the Udaya Ascendants are of prime importance.

If they are 6/8, stop the Horary or Prasna.

If they are 2/12, stop the Prasna or Horary.

If they are in trines or angles, it is Life Formula or Jeeva Sutra

If they are powerful, it is Life Formula.

If the Aroodha Ascendant is powerful and if the Udaya Ascendant is powerless, it is Roga or Disease Formula.


If the Udaya Ascendant is in the debilitation Sign or inimical Sign of the Aroodha lord, it is Mrityu or Death.

If the three Ascendants, Aroodha, Udaya and Chatra are in trines, Life or Jeeva is the result.
