Mahadasha’s more often then not are the ones’ that hold the key to many intriguing facets of our lives and what we beget to experience. There are though some certain aspects around the Mahadasha and this article is all about trying to bring together the elements that go on to create the dynamism what a Mahadasha presents and also an attempt to know what all one needs to factor to ensure that we are able to decode the arriving events with more accuracy and greater details.
To begin with even the great classical texts and eminent writers and exponents of have made it amply clear that even as we try to decipher the Mahadasha, we ought to consider the overall attributes of the planet whose Mahadasha we are aiming to decode. It’s position in the chart, the sign it occupies, the aspects that it receives and provides, not to forget the nakshatra, it’s energies and yes of course the ongoing transit of the said planet! Seems a handful, sure it is and to this not to forget the transits of other planets and certainly the whole understanding of the antardasha lord as well! It’s relationship with the mahadasha lord , through tatva, position and sign placement.
Mahadasha’s are always serving a sum total of all the net positive and net negative that the interplay of the Mahadasha lord, the Antardasha lord and the pratyantardasha lord bring alongside the houses that are influenced through placements, aspects and transit. Not to forget one also needs to factor the Ashtakavarga score of the houses where this play is being witnessed and based on that the intensity of the events that arrive will be felt proportionally!
In a few cases wherein the attribute of a planet gets greatly altered between the D1 and the D9 chart, also has thrown up sudden developments and more intense developments for individuals- whether these help or create an impediments largely is a factor of who these planets are in consideration and what their specific attributes are for a given specific chart under study!
From a Jaimini stand point the karakatva of the Mahadasha planet also will bring to play energies associated with that space and there certainly will be events associated with that karaka signification as well.
During an ongoing mahadasha, the impact and intensity will also vary based on the transit of the concerned planets (mahadasha and antardasha importantly) in the chart- the signs and houses through that they transit and the inter planetary aspects will also bring in considerable significance and in some cases cause sudden major developments for individuals.
Another simple observation of mine has been that seeking the grace of important planets in your chart- could be the strongest or the Atmakaraka and the Deity associated with them will provide much relief, at times even through a simple nama-smarnam!
Each chart, is as unique as each one of are, needless to say the energies from the higher divisional charts will also come into play in one or the other way, for some its’ more and for yet others the impacts are nominal- but the overall taste and tone can always be gauged from the D1 and one can know what to expect and prepare as much for what is coming their way!
I leave you here with this short post, will come back with some other topic soon, for Jyotisha is such a wonderful ocean to witness, even standing by it’s shores each wave brings along a new learning experience!
