Astrology Of Spirituality - Why some people renounce the world and become monks Part II

Free Vedic astrology article 

Continuation of the previous Blog part

The three planets of separation
Sun, Saturn and Rahu are three planets that represent separation; in as much as they tend to separate the person from the traits represented by that house. Which ever planet or house they influence, a person becomes devoid of the results of those houses.

The lord of the twelfth house also acts as a separating planet and should be given the same weightage as three planets mentioned above.

Dharm, Arth, Kaam and Moksh

The terms Dharm, Arth, Kaam and Moksh translate as righteous duty, production of wealth, enjoyment of life and freedom from the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. The first house in a chart is the house of Dharm, followed by Arth, Kaam and Moksh in the second third and the fourth houses. This cycle repeats thrice. The ascendant, fifth and the ninth houses become the Dharma houses. The second, sixth and tenth houses become the houses of Arth. The third, seventh and eleventh houses become the houses of Kaam, and fourth, eighth and twelfth houses that of Moksh. Which ever category has the maximum number of planets becomes the over riding concern of the person. Thus if someone has more planets in the Moksh houses, the chances are that s/he will be interested in Hinduism or Buddhism. A preponderance of planets in the Dharma houses will make a person religion minded.

The three Lagna or ascendants


We all know that Ascendant is the most important house in Hindu astrology, but equal importance is attached to Chandra (Moon) and Surya (Sun) Lagna as well. Accuracy of prediction demands that results be seen from all the three ascendants and then combined to come to a definite prediction.

Yoga for renunciation

If the Lagna, the second, the fourth and the seventh houses are heavily influenced by any two or more of Sun, Saturn, Rahu and the twelfth lord, a person loses interest in the world and becomes a renunciant. It is important that this happens in at least two out of the three ascendants.

The chart given here is of Swami Ram Krishna Paramhansa who is one of the greatest saints of modern times. Let us apply the rules for renunciation mentioned above to this chart. Venus becomes the dispositor (lord of the sign occupied by Saturn) for exalted Saturn in the ninth house, as also for Ketu in the 4th house. This Venus is placed in exaltation in the second house of family disrupting family life. 

Rahu - a planet of separation - aspects both Venus and the second house from the tenth house. In addition to this Rahu aspects the fourth house of home, and hearth. It must be noted here that Rahu is the dispositor of exalted Mars placed in the 12th house. Saturn placed in the 10th house from Mars also influences it negatively.Rahu thus separates Swami Ji from The domestic life for good.

The seventh house gets the 8th house aspect of Mars while 8th lord Mercury also aspects it. The seventh house thus also becomes afflicted.

Sun, and Moon are placed in the ascendant so all three Lagnas are one and the same. The conditions for renunciation or Sanyas are thus fulfilled from all Lagnas.

If we look at the distribution of planets in the horoscope we see that five planets are placed in Dharma houses, and two in the Moksha houses. The overwhelming majority of planets thus favor renunciation.

There are three exalted planets in the chart and Jupiter is very close to exaltation. The energy of these planets made him a spiritual giant of his time, and he is still revered all over India.
