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.
