The doshas derive from the Five Elements and their related properties. Vata is composed of Space and Air, Pitta of Fire and Water, and Kapha of Earth and Water. A person with a predominantly Vata constitution will have physical and mental qualities that reflect the elemental qualities of Space and Air. That is why Vata types are commonly quick thinking, thin, and fast moving. A Pitta type, on the other hand, will have qualities reflective of Fire and Water, such as a fiery personality and oily skin. A Kapha type will typically have a solid bodily frame and calm temperament, reflecting the underlying elements of Earth and Water.
The doshas are dynamic energies that constantly change in response to our actions, thoughts, emotions, the foods we eat, the seasons, and any other sensory inputs that feed our mind and body. When we live into the fulfillment of our individual natures, we naturally make lifestyle and dietary decisions that foster balance within our doshas. When we live against our intrinsic natures, we support unhealthy patterns that lead to physical and mental imbalances.
If the proportion of doshas in your current state is close to your birth constitution, then your health will be vibrant. A divergence between these states, however, indicates a state of imbalance. Vikruti is the term used to describe this imbalanced deviation away from prakruti.
In total, there are three primary doshic states:
Balanced: All three doshas are present in their natural proportions; also referred to as “equilibrium.”
Increased: A particular dosha is present in a greater-than-normal proportion; also referred to as an “aggravated” or “excess state.”
Decreased: A particular dosha is present in a less-than-normal proportion; also referred to as a “reduced” or “depleted state.”
Of the three states, the increased or aggravated state leads to the greatest number of imbalances. Such imbalances can arise from any number of influences, including following a dosha-aggravating diet or, more generally, carrying too much stress in life. You can initiate a restoration of balance, however, when you begin to understand both your unique constitutional make-up and how to harmonize your internal environment and its needs with the external world.
We are most susceptible to imbalances related to our predominant dosha. If you’re a Pitta type, for example, you may experience heartburn (a common Pitta disorder) after eating spicy foods. The key to remember is that like increases like, while opposites create balance. By simply choosing cooling or more alkalizing foods, you can avoid heartburn, while also supporting your underlying make-up.
Ayurveda offers specifically tailored recommendations for every individual, ranging from general lifestyle changes to the treatment of dis-ease (literally, an imbalance within our natural state of “ease”). For this reason, Ayurveda can truly be called a system of individualized health care, something remarkably different from the Western model’s “one-pill for all” approach. Since the doshas are used to detect imbalances before the manifestation of dis-ease, Ayurveda is also a complete system of preventative medicine.

When 7th Lord with 12th Lord in 12th house it may cause both lives in forigen country or traveling to forigen place. Native may be gets spiritual inclnation. If not well placed then both couples involving in immoral acts depending on planet natural significant.
Vedic astrology uses primarily the sidereal zodiac (in which stars are considered to be the fixed background against which the motion of the planets is measured), whereas Western Astrology uses the tropical zodiac (the motion of the planets is measured against the position of the Sun on the Spring equinox) free Vedic astrology reading Shows us this difference that becomes noticeable only over time, after the course of several centuries, as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. Synchronically, the two systems are identical, with just a shift of the origin of the ecliptic longitude by about 22 degrees or days, resulting on the placement of planets in the previous sign in Western charts about 70% of the time.
Planet Venus represents wife or girlfriend in the men chart. In women birth chart Jupiter represent husband and Mars represents boyfriend because women life is different than men life.
Women are more complicated emotionally as compared to men. In society role of men is different than women.

The Precession of the Equinoxes
The Earth doesn’t so much shift on its axis as it wobbles. The Earth’s axis is tilted at an angle of approximately 23.5° to the plane of the ecliptic. This tilt is what produces the seasonal variations. The Earth is also not a perfect sphere; it bulges in the middle near the Equator. This unequal distribution of mass causes the Earth to wobble around its rotational axis like a gyroscope. What this means is that the Earth’s axis makes its own rotation, with the North and South Poles slowly describing a circle around the ecliptic pole (which is the pole exactly perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic; the North and South poles, remember are tilted 23.5 degrees away from this plane). How slowly? Well, a complete cycle takes about 25,800 years. The precession can also be seen in terms of the North Star. Currently the North Pole of the Earth is aligned with the fixed star Polaris. This was not the case 3,000 years ago; and by the year 14,000 A.D., the North Star will be Vega, not Polaris.
This rotation of the Earth’s axis occurs at something like 1° every 71.5 years (about 5 seconds of arc per year). The wobble and the precession of the equinoxes were known to the Ancient Egyptians, although the first “official” discovery of it was made by an Ancient Greek astronomer, Hipparchus, who was born sometime around 190 B.C. It was noted because the Sun was in a slightly earlier position at the time of the Spring Equinox each year (as measured against the fixed stars). Because the movement slips backwards through the zodiac, it is called precession (as opposed to a forward-movement which would be called progression).
Now 1° every 71.5 years doesn’t sound like too much, but it certainly adds up over 2,000 years or so, and this is where we get into the different Zodiac systems.
The Tropical Zodiac and the Sidereal Zodiac
The ecliptic is a circle, and the thing about a circle is that it doesn’t have a beginning or an end. If you want to be able to measure something along a circle, you have to establish some sort of a reference point. The Zodiac as we know it today was first used by the Ancient Greeks over 2,000 years ago. Their year began with the Spring Equinox, and so it made sense to pick that point—that is, the point in the sky where the Sun appeared to be at the time of the Spring Equinox, as the reference point, and then divide the ecliptic into 12 equal segments from there. At the time, the Spring Equinox occurred when the Sun was in the band of the ecliptic that also included part of the Constellation of Aries. The first 30-degree division of the ecliptic was named “Aries,” and the remaining eleven segments were likewise named after the well-known and easily-recognized constellations that roughly corresponded in sequence. The Greeks never used the actual constellations to measure the positions of the planets, however, because the constellations did not divide the ecliptic into equal segments.
The type of astrology practiced at the time was entirely based on cycles. Each of the Signs of the Zodiac was associated with the type of qualities and energy that were experienced during the corresponding time of the year. The foundation of the interpretations of the Signs was seasonal. The Greeks were well aware of the precession of the equinoxes; however, as their system of astrology was based on the seasonal cycles, it did not concern them. Because this Zodiac begins with the Vernal Point, and the Spring Equinox, when the Sun is directly overhead at the Tropic of Cancer, this Zodiac is called the Tropical Zodiac, or the Seasonal Zodiac.
Although the vast majority of Western Astrologers uses the Tropical Zodiac, it is not the only Zodiac system. The Sidereal Zodiac (Sidereal = Star) does take the precession of the equinoxes into account, and rather than beginning its cycle at the point of the Spring Equinox each year, it begins when the Sun aligns with a Fixed Star in the Constellation of Aries. The Sidereal Zodiac is also known as the Fixed Zodiac.
While astrology was developing in the West, it was also developing in the East. Hindu astrology, called Vedic astrology or Jyotish astrology has always used the Sidereal Zodiac. Jyotish astrology has an entirely different set of techniques and interpretations for the signs and planets. The fundamentals may be the same as in Western Astrology, but the similarity ends there.
In the 1930’s, Cyril Fagan began to advocate using the Sidereal Zodiac in Western Astrology, rather than using the Tropical Zodiac. Although definitely in the minority, there are many astrologers who practice Western Sidereal Astrology, using basically the same interpretations for the signs and the planets, but an entirely different measurement system. Currently, the difference between the Tropical Zodiac and the Sidereal Zodiac is about 23°. What this means is that the Spring Equinox, which occurs at 0° of Aries (Tropical) actually occurs at about 7° of the Sidereal Sign of Pisces. Because no one can agree as to the exact location of the start of the Constellation of Aries, and therefore to the point where the Sidereal Zodiac would begin, the Sidereal Zodiac is calculated backwards from the Vernal Point, using one of many different ayanamsas.
Tropical Astrology and Western Sidereal Astrology have fundamentally different approaches to the symbolism and interpretation of the Signs. Tropical Astrology believes that the qualities associated with the signs are linked to the seasons, rather than to the fixed stars, and therefore the precession of the equinoxes and the growing difference between the Tropical Signs and the relative positions of their namesake constellations is of no consequence. Sidereal Astrologers (both Western and Eastern) believe that the qualities of the signs are not related to the seasons, but rather to the specific portions of the ecliptic as measured against the fixed stars.
With respect to the question of the accuracy of ancient charts and interpretations, we only need to remember what Zodiac system was used at the time, and keep things in context. The Western Astrological tradition, which includes the Greeks, the Europeans, the English (in the Middle Ages), and the Americans in more recent years, is based on the Tropical Zodiac. Therefore, all charts and interpretations from these times and places would be as accurate and valid today as they were then. Furthermore, the date, time and location information can be used to calculate a “modern” version of the ancient charts with no adjustments (except for the necessary conversions to translate the more ancient dates into the modern calendar).
Any charts from the Eastern tradition, however, as well as any Western Sidereal charts (post 1930’s) would require adjustments based on the precession of the equinoxes. The difference between the Tropical zodiac and the Sidereal Zodiac changes each year, and the degree of precession would have to be taken into account for the date of the chart. This would be rather nightmarish to try and calculate by hand; fortunately, most computer astrology programs that offer a Sidereal Zodiac option take this into account and can produce accurate Sidereal charts for any time or place.
A Digression: The Age of Aquarius
The precession of the equinoxes has to do with more than just the two different zodiac systems. As the equinoxes precess, they relate to the Great Ages of Man. These Ages mark different periods where significant evolutionary changes occurred. The Ages are defined by the Sidereal Sign that is the current location of the Vernal Point. Currently, the Spring Equinox (0° of Aries in the Tropical Zodiac) occurs at about 7° of the Sidereal Sign of Pisces, and we are currently very much in the Age of Pisces, where we will stay for another 150-300 years or so until the Spring Equinox precesses into the Sidereal Sign of Aquarius, which will mark the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. (Even agreeing on this definition of the “Ages” there is much dispute as to the actual year that the “Age of Aquarius” will begin. The reasons and reasoning for this aren’t terribly important to this discussion. Suffice it to say that it’s not terribly likely that any of us will still be here to witness it.)
Each Great Age is associated with a major evolutionary and cultural advancement of the species. In the Age of Gemini, language was developed. In the Age of Taurus, agriculture was discovered, and for the first time, towns, villages, and cities were formed because humans no longer needed to hunt and gather for their food and so were not required to be so nomadic. The Age of Aries ushered in wars and warfare, violence and conquest. The Age of Pisces has been dominated largely by religion, Christianity in particular, with its peculiar mixture of persecution and spiritual salvation. The general thoughts about the Age of Aquarius are that it will mark a period of enlightenment and freedom. But once again, even the most generous estimates put this off for another 100 years at least.
People with Rahu ascendant have a certain mysteriousness or unpredictability around then and like shadowy Rahu, it is very hard to understand these kind of people. They carry a cloud of ambiguity and mystery around them. This can either affect people positively or negatively. These kid of people are mainly vata in their physical and mental traits with a mixture of Saturn and Venus traits that can afford them a certain unusual or dark beauty. They are generally thin in build and quick in movement with sensitive nervous and digestive systems. Their immune systems may be weak and they are more susceptible to contagious disease than other types, as well as to degenerative and nervous system disorders. they often suffer from insomnia and difficult dreams.
On a psychic or spiritual level, Rahu types are often possessed by something , whether it is another entity, curses, unfulfilled longings from past lives or simply driven by their own imagination. While they incline towards psychic, occult and astral pursuits, tehse can be dangerous for them as they have a lot of vulnerability to subtle energies. They may become mediums, do channeling or practice Tantra but are easily caught in illusions about what they do. They often have good healing pwers and a great deal of empathy and can be very devoted. While interested in astrology, they usually do better at an intuitive level as they are seldom good at calculation.
The correct judgment of the horoscope needs a deep understanding of planetary relationships. I believe that the application of the fundamental rules of Astrology must be based on practical observation. Whatever has been said by our sages in the classics appears to be correct for different positions of planets for different Lagna. Some astrologers have said that Jupiter in the 5th gives mostly daughters while others have said this position gives more sons and some say that there will be no son at all. This is correct if properly applied and tested, eg Jupiter in watery signs gives mostly daughters, in fiery signs, male births and very bad results for Capricorn Ascendant.
The Moon and Mars are supposed to be friends but Mars is debilitated in the Moon’s sign Cancer while the Moon is debilitated in Mars’ sign Scorpio. Jupiter and Mars are very good friends but Jupiter is debilitated in Capricorn where Mars is exalted. Mars is debilitated in Cancer where Jupiter is exalted. Mars and Saturn are inimical but Mars is exalted in Saturn sign Capricorn whereas Saturn gets debilitated in Mars’ sign Aries. Suppose the Moon is exalted in the 7th house, what results should be expected? The Moon is inimical to Venus – will it give inimical results in Taurus due to ownership of Venus or will it give the results of exaltation as Moon is exalted there? We find that mostly the Moon in Taurus in the 7th house, though the 9th lord (Bhaagyaadhipati), gives inimical results.
In the 4th house the exalted Moon shows tensions with mother. Jupiter is inimical to Venus but Venus is exalted in the sign of Jupiter, Pisces. Such planetary relationships and behavior are beyond my comprehension. I can only say that both are quite different aspects and should not be mixed up.
In my opinion it is always safer not to consider the exaltation or debilitation of planets at all. Here, we are only concerned with the relationship between Jupiter and Saturn. Jupiter is debilitated in Saturn’s sign Capricorn and does not give auspicious results here. On the other hand Jupiter’s placement in Aquarius, the other sign of Saturn, is very baneful while it has been described as very good in Saravali.
In early 1987, a person dealing in drugs came to me. He was born in Libra Ascendant (Chart 1) with Saturn in Lagna and Jupiter and Saturn in opposition to each other. I had found that whenever Jupiter and Saturn are opposite each other, they exchange their characteristics. On the basis of this experience I told the native that his wife should have very ordinary complexion and she must have some kind of pain in the body, like rheumatic pain or arthritis. I also told the native, Jupiter’s placement has given him a handsome physique, delightful manners, kindheartedness, sincerity, influential behavior, generosity etc. Thus Jupiter’s influence as described for his position in Lagna could be noticed in the native.
We live in the world of success worshippers. In Kalyuga the predominant tendency of all ambitious people is to succeed and succeed ONLY. The end is important for them, whatever may be the means adopted to achieve success. The importance of 11th House cannot be over emphasised in Kalyug where the only barometer of success is money! 11th House is the house of gains, of recognition and awards.
As per Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra, an auspicious 11th house makes a person happy at all times. 11th house indicates the fructification of efforts of a person. A person is doomed to a lifetime of struggle and very limited gains if the 11th house does not show promise. The pivot around which success revolves in a horoscope is 11th lord and the 11th house. When we assess the horoscope of successful people, we find that all of them have a strong 11th House and 9th house (11th from 11th house).
Assessment of Success in a Horoscope
After assessing the strength of Lagna, promise of other bhavas in the horoscope and various yogas present in the horoscope, we assess the potential to succeed by the following:
See the placement of 11th Lord.
— 11th lord in Kendra or Trikona is good
— 11th lord in own house is good
— Exalted 11th lord is excellent
–11th lord in 6th house or 8th house is not good
Number of Ashtakvarga points between 10th house and 11th house The Ashtakvarga points of 10th and 11th houses from Lagna, Moon and Sun indicate how much a person will be rewarded for his efforts. If the points of 11th house are more than the 10th house the person will be suitably rewarded for his efforts.
Connection between the 11th lord and the 2nd lord The connection between 11th house (earning) and the 2nd house (wealth) shows the capacity to retain the money earned. See if the 2nd and 11th lords are connected, in kendras from each other or in exchange.

Warning Our Guru, Shri K.N. Rao always emphasizes that in the changing times, what is given in the astrological classics even if not interpolated have to be interpreted liberally and not literally.
Some other interesting points about the 11th house/lord-
Relation between Lagna and 11th house
The 11th Lord is neutral or enemy of the Lagna lord for each sign.
Exaltation and Debilitation For each Lagna, the house where 11th lord exalts and debilitates indicates the inclinations of that lagna. For Gemini and Pisces Lagna, 11th Lord exalts in the 8th house. (examples are Einstein and Morarji Desai). For Aquarius Lagna, the 11th Lord exalts in the 6th house indicating success after struggle (example is Amitabh Bachchan). For Aries and Libra Lagna it exalts in the 7th house of spouse and partnership. For Cancer and Virgo Lagna it exalts in the 9th house of father and luck. In case of Leo and Aquarius Lagna, 2nd and 11th lords are the same.
–It is a trishadhaya house with 3rd house and 6th house. It is the strongest among the trik houses.
–It is a part of Kaam Trikona with 3rd house and 7th house. The strongest of Kaam trikona also.
There is a saying – Control your desires or they will control you. The 11th house is the house of your desires and without controlling the 11th house significations; one cannot begin on the spiritual path. Hence the 11th house is the biggest stumbling block to salvation. The last barrier! For those leading a spiritual life the 11th house, being the strongest of the Kaam trikona is bondage and bad for salvation.
