Timing With Sodhya Pindas

Parasara taught some techniques of timing events based on sodhya pindas. We can take the number of rekhas in any house from a planet and multiply the count with the planet’s sodhya pinda. We can get a nakshatra from that product by dividing it with 27, taking the remainder and counting nakshatras from Aswini. Benefics and malefics transiting in the nakshatra will give good or bad results (respectively) relating to the original house. Especially Saturn’s transit is important. Saturn’s transit in the nakshatra corresponding to a particular house makes the signified matters suffer. Jupiter’s transit is beneficial. Some people also take the 10th or 19th nakshatra from the nakshtra found above. A nakshatra and the 10th and 19th nakshatras from it are owned by the same planet under Vimsottari dasa scheme and they go together.

We can also find a rasi by dividing the product with 12 instead of 27 and counting rasis from Aries. Saturn’s transit in the resultant rasi brings misfortune relating to the original house. However, nakshatras are more important.

When we find houses from Sun, we should look at matters related to soul, inherent nature, personality, will power and father. Houses from Moon show mind, wisdom, peace, happiness and mother. Houses from Mars show siblings, land and strength. Houses from Mercury stress on business, commerce, profession, friends and good behavior. Houses from Jupiter show the nourishment of body, learning, children and wealth. Houses from Venus show marriage, comforts, luxuries, vehicles and sexual pleasures. Saturn shows longevity, livelihood, fears, sadness, dangers and sorrows.

When we want to time events relating to a particular matter, we should first fix the relevant planet. Then we should fix the relevant house. We should then find the number of rekhas in that house from that planet in that planet’s BAV. We should multiply it by the sodhya pinda of the planet (also called yoga pinda). By dividing the product with 27 or 12 and taking the remainder, we should find the associated nakshatra or rasi. Then we can time key events based on the transits in that nakshatra and rasi.

For example, suppose we want to time the good and bad periods of a native’s father. Father should be seen from Sun and the 9th house. We can take Sun’s BAV and find the number of rekhas in the 9th house from Sun. Suppose Sun is in Aq. Suppose Sun’s BAV contains 5 rekhas in Li (the 9th from Aq). Suppose Sun’s sodhya pinda is 86. Multiplying 86 with 5, we get 430. If we divide 430 by 27, the quotient is 15 and the remainder is 25. The 25th constellation is Poorvabhadrapada. So Saturn’s transit in Poorvabhadrapada is bad for father and Jupiter’s transit in the same nakshatra is good. Now let us find the rasi. By dividing 430 by 12, we get a quotient of 35 and a remainder of 10. So Saturn’s transit in Cp (the 10th rasi of the zodiac) is bad for father and Jupiter’s transit in Cp is good.
