Argala: Advanced Rules for Argala-VirodhArgala

Some Advanced Rules for Argala and Virodh Argala used in Vedic Astrology

In this last post of this series we will see some advanced but very important rules used in Vedic Astrology which are must to know before we reach final conclusion.

BPHS says:
Or, if the number of Argalas are more than the obstructing Grahas, then also the Argala will prevail.

When calculating the net results of argala and Virodhargala we have to see which house has more planets. If argala house have more planets then results of Argala will prevail and if Virodhargala house has more number of planets then Virodhargala effects will be stronger

BPHS says:
If the Argala causing Grah is stronger than the obstructing one, the former will prevail.

Means, When there number of are planets equal in both Argala houses and Virodhargala houses. then we will have to see that which planet is stronger. If Argala planet is stronger then effects of Argala causing planets will pervail and vice versa. In Vedic astrology, there are many parameters for strength. And there is controversy that whic parameter to use. Some use Shadbala, some use sthanbala etc. Personally, in coarse perspective, I use that the Exaltation > Mooltrikona > own house > friend's house > Enemy's house > Debilitation formula. But you can use whatever you feel suitable or any other.

BPHS says:
If there are 3, or more malefics in the 3rd they will cause Vipreet Argala (more effective intervention), which will also be harmless and be very favourable.

If there are more than three planets in 3H then they will cause Vipreet Argala which will me more effective intervention and will be harmless and favourable. As this condition will make the person more courageous for that house and person will be more hardworking.

BPHS says:
As Rahu and Ketu have retrograde motions, the Argalas and obstructions be also counted accordingly in a reverse manner.

This is also a controversial rule. Some Astrologers believe that this rule is applicable to Rahu only, some says Ketu only and some says both.

Another contorversys is that some people says that the argala and virodhargala caused by nodes should be counted in opposite direction (for example if Rahu is in 4H from Lagna then the rahu will cause the Virodhargala and not the Argala)

Also some people says that the house which accomodate Nodes should be counted in opposite direction for argala and virodh argala (for example, If Rahu is in Lagna, and planet in 4H, then the planets in 4H will cause virodhargala and not argala)

BPHS says:
Maharishis say, that the Argala, caused by one Grah, will yield limited effect, by two medium and by more than two, excellent effects.

If Argala house have one planet then the effect will be less and more planets will cause more effect. Means more the merrier.

BPHS says:
Argalas should be counted from a Rasi, or a Grah, as the case may be. The Argala, which is unobstructed will be fruitful, while the one duly obstructed will go astray.

Argala should can be counted from the house or planet whatever is needed in interpretation.

BPHS says:
The Argala, caused by placement of a Grah in the first one fourth part of the Rasi, is countered by another, placed in the 4th quarter of the respective obstructive Rasi. Similarly 2nd quarter’s Argala is eliminated by the 3rd quarter placement of another Grah.

Another important rule indicates that divide each house in four equal parts of 7 degrees 30 minutes each. so if planets causing argala and virodhargala are in corresponding quarter of the houses then the obstruction will be effective otherwise the obstruction may not be that effective.

For example If the Argala causing planet is in the first quarter
(or first 7 degrees 30 minutes of the house), while the obstructing planet is
in the 4th quarter (22degrees 30 minutes to 30 degrees), the obstruction
indeed will counteract the argala.Similarly when the Argala planet is in the 2nd
quarter of the House (i.e. 7 degrees 30 minutes to 15 degrees), the
obstruction (planet in 15degrees to 22 degrees 30 minutes i.e. 3rd quarter)
will counteract the Argala."

I had tried to explain this confusing topic in very simple language and in a interesting manner altogether. I know I was not much successful in my attempt. So please forgive me for this and also for my grammatical mistakes.

Argala: Basic concepts of Argala-Virodhargala

Some Basic concepts of Argala and Virodhargala

Before progressing to our last post in this series I will like to answer some very basic questions that are arising in your minds and I had received emails asking those.

Ques: Does all argala have different effects or same effects?

Answer: All Argalas have different types of effects. Which we will see in detail in answer to next question.
Ques: Why Planets in 2nd house, 4th house, 11th hosue, and 5th house have so decisive effect on a particular house?

Answer: 2nd house from a specific house signifies resources available for that house. And planets posited in 2nd house will have effect on the resources available for that houses. So a malefic in 2nd hosue from a house will effect the resources badly and benefics in 2H will effect the resources in a good way. This Argala is also called "Dhanargala"

Similarly 4H from a specific indicates comforts, mother, learning related to that specific house. So planets in 4th hosue from a house will affect these factors related to that house. This 4th hosue Argala is also called "Sukhargala"

5th house from a specific shows abilities, knowledge, romance (affection/interest towards that specific house). And planets in 5H from a specific house will affect knowledge related to that house. 5th house Argala is also called "Sutargala"

11th house from any house shows gains related to that specifc house. And planets posited in 11th house from a specific house will effect gains from that specific house. This Argala is also called "Labhargala"

Ques: Why 3rd H malefics cause Argala on a specific house?

Ans: 3rd house shows initiatives. And malefics in 3rd house from a specific house indicates that the person is very ruthless in initiating and will take risks and will be daring when it comes to significations of that house.. Hence they will be causing a specific effect on that house and hence told to cause argala.

Ques: If Argala is obstructed by equivalent virodhargala then the results of that how and to much extent results of that planets will be felt?

Answer: when the periods of planets causing argala will come then the person will cause effects of Argala causing planets come true. But when periods of virodhargala planets will come then the effects that were triggered in Argala planets will come to an halt.

For example, In Lord Shrirama horoscope. He have cancer lagna. And have exalted saturn in 4H and exalted Sun in 10H. Saturn (7L,8L in 4H - indicates staying away from home) is causing Argala on 1H (own existence) and Sun is causing Argala (2L in 10H indicates becoming a king, enjoying all success in career, being good in politics and ruling)

During Saturn's period, Lord Shri Rama had to leave home and had to face many hardships physically. But when the Sun's period came then the effects of Argala came to an Halt and the effects of Sun were felt

Ques: Will Shubhargala obstructs Paapargala and vice versa only? or there is any other rule?

Answer: Shubha Argala can block papargala and Papaargala can block shubhargala. Again Shubhargala can block shubhargala and papargala can block papargala. Hence all four combinations are possible.

Some advanced questions were also asked which I prefer not to answer here as they will become clear as we advance further. If still some soubt will remain I will be happy to clear those in coming in our forum.

Argala: Virodhargala and General Characteristics

Virodhargala and general Characteristics

BPHS says: while obstructors of the Argala will be those in the 10th, 12th and 3rd from a Bhava, or a Grah. The 5th is also an Argala place, while the Grah in the 9th will counteract such Argala.

Means, the Argala caused by 2H, 4H and 11H is opposed by 12H, 10H, and 3H respectively.In Simple words. The planets in 12H from a specific house will obstruct or counteract the effect of planets causing Argala from 2nd hosue from that specific house. Similarly effects of planets in 4H will be obstructed by planets in 10 H, and that of 11H will be obstructed by planets in 3H.

Similarly, Effect of planets in 5H (secondary argala) is opposed by planets in 9H.

Let us see this by pictorial example.Add Image

Some Characteristics of Argala and Virodhargala to be kept in mind at this stage:

1) Effects of Argala and Virodhargala are felt in Dasha periods and sub dasha periods of the planets causing Argala/Virodhargala

2) If Obstruction is weak, the result of Virodhargala may not be felt at all and similarly if obstruction is too strong then effect of Argala may not be felt at all.

3) Effects of Argala planets (Planets causing Argala) will be triggered in their periods/subperiods. Which may continue to effect the whole life if there is no obstruction.

4) Even when there is obstruction. Effects of the planets causing Argala can still be felt in their dasha periods which will be stopped and obstructed in the periods of planets causing Virodhargala.

5) If a planet have more than one relation with a specific house (Say Argala + Rashi Drishti or Argala + grah drishti) Then the effect of Argala causing planet is more strong and conducive.

6) If a house is empty and that house is one of Argala causing house, then that house will have negligible effect.

Argala: Argala and General Characteristics

Argala: What is it?

In vedic Astrology, Argala plays a very important role. In general term Argala means "Obstruction" or it means "Bolt on a door". But in vedic astrology it is meant by a decisive caused on a planet and/or on the house.

Argala is a decisive effect on a planet or a house. In Simple language we can call it 'House Aspects' It is different from Sign aspects (Rashi drishti) and Planetary aspects (Grah Drishti).

Some characteristics of Argala:

1) It is casted by House and planets in that house on a house and planets in aspected house.

2) It has more decisive effect on a house and significations of that house. On the contrary, Rashi Drishti show permanent effect and Grah Drishti shows the desire of a planet to effect the significations of a house.

3) It's effects are seen in the periods and subperiods of that planet and Rashi. On the other hand Rashi Drishti have a permanent effect which is independent of Dashas.

4) Argala can be "Shubhargla" or "papargala" (Malefic effect and Benefic effect respectively)

5) Argala can be and should be used in all divisional charts.

General Principles of Argala used in Vedic Astrology:

For this I will like to stick to Maharishi Parashara's Teachings in Brihat Parashar Hora samhita. Parashara Describes Argala in Chapter 31 of BPHS. I will use those teachings and will try to explain those teachings in a more simple language. Infact I will try to make it as simple as possible so that everyone can understand. Some advanced readers may find it too stretched or boring. I request them to forgive me.

BPHS Says: Formation of Argala. Maitreya, I explain below Argala to know the definite effects of Bhavas and Grahas. Grahas in the 4th, 2nd and the 11th cause Argalas,
In other shaloka: The 5th is also an Argala place, while the Grah in the 9th will counteract such Argala.

Means, Planets in the 2nd house, 4th house and 11th house from a specific house will cause Argala on that specific house. Parashara also described that 5th house from that specific house will also cause argala.

Parashara described Argala of 2,4,11 at different shaloka. and that of 5H is different shaloka. Because the argala cause by 2nd, 4th and 11th are more important and more decisive and in modern terms it is also called "Primary Argala". Whereas Argala from 5H is not that important Hence it is called Secondary Argala. But it doesnot mean that we should not use this in interpretation. It also plays very important role.

In other Shaloka Parashara says: If there are 3, or more malefics in the 3rd they will cause Vipreet Argala (more effective intervention), which will also be harmless and be very favourable.

Means, If there are 3 malefics or more in 3H from o house then they will also act as Argala on that specific house. Normally 3H is of Virodhargala (We will discuss in coming para) But in such a condition it will act as Argala itself.

Let us see the example of Argala in this diagram

As we can see, on lagna, 2nd house (saturn and jupiter) is causing argala so effects of Jupiter and saturn will be carried to 1st house. But as 11H is empty. It will not have any evident effect on 1st house.

Avasthas: Shayanadi Avasthas: How to calculate

Avasthas: Shayanadi Avasthas: How to calculate

Each avastha type is given a number

1) Shayan (lying down),
2) Upavesan, (sitting)
3) Netrapani, (Eyes and hands)
4) Prakash, (glowing)
5) Gaman, (On the move/walking)
6) Agaman, (coming)
7) Sabha, (attending an assembly)
8) Agam, (Returning)
9) Bhojan,(Eating)
10) Nritya Lips,(Desirous)
11) Kautuk (Eager)
12) Nidr (Sleeping)

Similarly each planet is given a number from 1 to 7 (sun to saturn), each sign is given a number from 1 to 12 (Aries to Pisces) and each nakshatra is given a number from 1 to 27 (From Ashwini to Revati)

The formula for calculating the Shayanadi avastha is

Number of the Nakshatra (occupied by that planet)

X (Multiply)

Number of the planet


Number of sign in navamsha that planet is in

+ (Add)

Janam Nakshatra (constellation occupied by moon)


Number of ghatis of birth


number of Lagna Rashi (Sign occupied by Lagna in Rashi chart) = Total

Now divide this total by 12. You will get a reminder. This reminder will give you the corresponding avastha.

To get the Sub state,

Take the square of the number of avastha of planet + Anka value of the person's name's
first syllable (hindi varnamala) = Total

(Anka value is 1 for a, ka, cha, ? a, dha, bha and va, 2 for i, kha, ja, ?ha, na, ma and sha, 3 for u, ga, jha, ta, pa, ya and sa, 4 for e, gha, ? a, tha, pha, ra and sa, 5 for o, ca, ?ha, da, ba, la and ha.)

Divide the total by 12 = Remainder


Remainder + Constant additives of that planet ( Surya 5, Candr 2, Mangal 2, Budh 3, Guru 5, Sukr 3, Sani 3, Rahu and Ketu 4.) = Second Total

Now divide second total by 3 = Second Remainder

For second remainder

1 = Drishti
2 = Chesht
3 = Vichesht

In Chesht sub state planet gives full result, In Drishti sub state planet gives half results and no results in third state.

Another simple method to calculate these avasthas (The method which I use usually) is to use a good Horoscope making software. :))

Avasthas: Shayanadi Avasthas- General Description

Avasthas: Shayanadi Avasthas- General Description

Besides three types of Dasha Discussed by us in previous posts. There is another types of Avastha. This is called Shayanadi avasthas. These avasthas indicate the mood of the planet.
and which result will it give. Parashara says this type to be most important of all. Parashars discussed these avasthas in very detail. But these avasthas are one of the best kept secrets in astrology. And one of the less known types of avasthas. In coming posts we will discuss these avasthas. The reference is mainly from BPHS.

Shayanadi Avashathas are of twelve types,

1) Shayan (lying down),
2) Upavesan, (sitting)
3) Netrapani, (Eyes and hands)
4) Prakash, (glowing)
5) Gaman, (On the move/walking)
6) Agaman, (coming)
7) Sabha, (attending an assembly)
8) Agam, (Returning)
9) Bhojan,(Eating)
10) Nritya Lips,(Desirous)
11) Kautuk (Eager)
12) Nidr (Sleeping)

There are further sub types of these.

1) Drishti
2) Chesht
3) Vichesht

General effects of sayanadi avasthas as told in BPHS.

If a benefic Grah is in Sayan, then that benefic planet will give benefid results in all his dasha and antardasha period. Because at that time planet is lying down and is in relaxed mood. he is feeling comfortable enough in that house that he can laydown and rest there.

If any malefic planet is in Bhojan avastha, then that planet will destroy every happiness of that house. Bhojan means eating and a planet is eating that house and it's significations.

When a planet is in 7H in the state of Nidr (sleeping) and is not getting any malefic aspect then native will feel auspisious effects related to that house. This is because that planet is sleeping there and is not in mood to harm. Similar effects can be described for 5th house

But if a malefic is in 8th house in nidr then person will have untimely death due to punishment from the government. But if that planet is getting aspect from benefic and/or is in conjunction with benefic then that person will die untimely at sacred places/shrines. Parashara described the place of death as Ganga nadi specifically.

If moon is in Kautuk or prakash avastha then person will have a great Rajayoga. If a malefic is in 10th house in sayan or bhojan avastha then that person will have to face problems due to his own bad deeds of present life any many past lives.

These are just general effects of these avasthas as told by Parashara. In coming posts we will discuss how to calculate these avasthas and what are the effects with respect to different planets

Third House: Planets in third house

Planets in the Third House

A question was asked to me with regards to last post. That, Third house is a upchaya house. Malefic planets in upchayas (3,6,10,11) are good. But in our last post we discussed that malefics in third house is bad for brothers. There are two reasons for this confusion

1) 3H doesnot show only brothers, but courage, initiatives. A natural malefic in third house may not be good for brothers, but a well placed natural malefic can give a person enough courage for starting new things and take risks. If other planets are supporting person can benefit from the risks taken. Malefics in Upchayas make "Kubera Yoga" Now the questions arise why Kubera Yoga is formed by malefics? This is simple than complex interpretations but a little complex than simple interpretations. Third house show initiatives, malefics (kroor graha literally means harsh planets or emotionless planets or bold planets) in 3H gives person boldness to take risks and start new initiatives withour emotions or fears. Sixth house show obstacles and malefics in 6H show that a person will overcome obstacles with boldness, without emotions and the harsh way and viceversa with benefic planets. 10 House indicates Profession. Malefics in 10 House show that a person does his karma with discipline (saturn) and is hard working (saturn) with courage (mars) ruthlessly (rahu) but there is a catch again. A planet carries the result of the house it owns so a planet can also do bad if it owns dusthanas. In this case both results prevails. A person can be a hardworker but may not get the results as expected or deserved. But if malefic own good houses then the results will be opposite. Relationships also matters. Similarly for the 11H.

we will discuss this when we will discuss effects of different planets in third house in this post.

2) Actually no planet is good or bad. the words used like 'malefic', 'kroora', souwmya, benefic, dusthana etc actually holds different meanings than derived from a single word. We will try to discuss the basics of astrology in coming time as and when we think is required.

Astrology is such a vast subject that everything was not be written in books as there were no priting presses in ancient times, copies of books were made by hand. So in ancient times books were used just like short notes and most of the knowledge and skills were transferred from teachers to students by oral method. So we should not take meanings of the sentences written in books as it is instead we should take the meaning what they actually want to say.

Another thing asked was "The effect of Shani + Rahu in Leo" For gemini Ascendent, Saturn owns 9H and 8H and rahu own 9H. They are friends to each other, but Leo is not a favourable sign for them. Saturn being 8L will cause separation from siblings and rahu will cause some misundertanding with each other. His relationship with brother may see sudden outbursts of anger sometimes. Although the person will be disciplined and will like to learn new things. Saturn from 3H will aspect 5H (may cause trouble with progeny, hardworking progeny), 9H (since own house, person will be sceptical, ), 12H (some problems in relations and fear of thefts and losses, a willingness for spiritual uprise. If connection with ketu and venus, spiritual upliftment is more)

Rahu in 3H will aspect 7H (problems in relationships), 9H (Disbeliefs in traditions and religion, poor prudence), 11H (courage, losses).

The Sun-—Sun in the third house makes the person courageous and authorative. Person have illuminating ideas and person's mind is resourceful and creative. But if Sun is afflicted then it is considered bad for brothers. Here we can see a very clear example of what we discussed earlier in this post. Sun in 3H may not be good for relationship with younger brothers but it will make the person "vanquisher of enemies" in the battlefield. Person will like to accept the challenge and overcome the obstacles with courage and person will always try to safeguard his followers and family in favourable and unfavourable times.

So sun will carry both good and bad results with him. Now relationships of sun and the sign third house occupies also play a role. If Sun is exalted and in own house then sun will not be bad for the brothers. On the other hand if Sun is placed in enemy sign or debilitation then person may have skin disorders (If in watery sign and with combusted mercury). His brothers will be non-cooperative and he may not share a good relation with brothers.

Sun in 3H will have full aspect on 9H which will make the person religious and fortunate.

Third House: Effects of third house

Effects of The Third house

If third house is influenced by benefics, the person will be endowed with siblings and will be courageous. If 3rd lord is related with Mars and/or both planets are in 3H, the person will get good results in Dashas of Mars as Mars is Karaka of 3H and courage. Sibling will face problems if these two planets are heavily influenced by malefics.
If third lord and/or Mars is in Dusthana siblings may have to face trouble. On the other hand if these two lords are in Trines/Quadrants then siblings will prosperous in dashas of these planets and in dashas of their dispositors.

BPHS says, "14. Adverse Grahas. Sūrya in Sahaj Bhava will destroy the preborn. The afterborn will be destroyed, if Śani is found in Sahaj Bhava. In the same situation Mangal will destroy both the preborn and later-born." ... Now this statement seems contrary to what we read earlier. This statement is applicable when these planets are functional malefic and/or own 8H, 6H,12H. Also in next shaloka He writes:
"15. After estimating the strength and weakness of such Yogas, the effects, related to brothers and sisters, be announced."

If 3L is well placed, is placed in trines or quadrants, is aspected by benefics, If 3H is occupied by good planets and is devoid of malefic argala and drishtis then person will have many well to do brothers. Similar results can be expected with 3L and Mars is in navamsha of benefics and/or friend. If 3L is in Trine or quadrant from Lagnesh, Person will share a good relation with his brothers.

3H is for younger brothers. The elder brother, his prosperity and his adversity should be judged by a consideration of the 11th house.

Respected Astrologer Sh. B.V. Raman in his book 'How to judge horoscope' writes

"The number of brothers has to be judged by measuring the number of Navamsas gained by the lord of the 3rd house, Mars, or the planets in the 3rd, whichever is powerful. Kalidasa in his Uttara Kalamrita suggests that the number of elder brothers should be ascertained by the number of Navamsas passed by the 11th house. The number of Navamsas (of the 3rd bhava) yet to pass indicates the younger ones."

Courage, boldness and initiatives a person takes is also indicated by the third lord. If third lord is strong and well placed and is aspected by benefics the person is courageous and bold and vice versa.

3) Lagna is strong and well placed

Then the person is a blessed with "Guna" of saraswati. Such persons are very good poet, mathematician, speaker, intelligent, well known in society. But for fulfillment of this Yoga all the planets involved should be strong and well placed.

Jupiter gives intelligence, good memory, sattvic approach to education. Mercury gives learning ability, mathematical ability, good analytical and logical abilities and venus blesses one with passion, creativity, arts and enjoyment. Which ability will be dominated in the person having above yoga depends on positions of planets and strength of the planets.

Types of Drekkana Varga (D-3 Divisional chart)

Types of Drekkana Varga (D-3 Divisional chart)

Drekkana Varga or D-3 divisional chart is one of the common charts used for predicting about siblings of a person. But this is a very less known and ever lesser discussed fact that there are four types of Drekkana charts described in different texts. These four types are calculated by different methods. I do not know the exact methods to calculate them but you can get them in "Jagannath hora Astrology Software" (commonly known as jhora) by right clicking on the chart > select Parashari Drekkana > Right click on same chart again > Choose Drekkana > Select the type you want. J hora is the best software that calculate these types for you very precisely (I don't know whether anyother software do this or not).

As I told you I donot know the exact methods to calculate them, but I will like to discuss the importance of these different drekkanas. All these Drekkanas show different aspects of life.

These four types of Drekkanas are as follows:

1) Parashari Drekkana
2) Jagannath Drekkana
3) Somnath Drekkana
4) Pravritti-traya Drekkana

1) Parashari Drekkana: This is the most commonly used Drekkana in Vedic astrology. Infact when you read about drekkana anywhere without specific reference then it is understood that the author is refering to this drekkana by default. Parashari Drekkana is used to know about the sibling of a person. Like how many siblings does the person have, what are the sex of those siblings, what does this these siblings do (obviously in a crude manner), and gross luck of those siblings and other aspects related to siblings.

2) Jagannath drekkana: This Drekkana reflect karma of previous life of a person. This drekkana describes the previous life karma of a person in a very physical manner. D-60 analysis must also be used along with it. This drekkan is used to know what karmic load a person is carrying (Obviously D-60 must also be used along with this)

3) Somnath Drekkana: Somnath Drekkana is used to know about the sexual drive of a person. This describes the attitude of a person towards the sexual matters, his libido and his attraction towards the subject.

4) Pravritti-traya Drekkana: This chart is used to see the drives and initiatives that leads the person to apply it's determination toward a specific subject. It tells about the direction where a person will put his efforts and where will he apply his intelligence and determination.

If you have any further query or want to know more about these types feel free to email or leave a comment here.
