How much power and authority will you enjoy in your lifetime? Your Ghatika Lagna holds the answer.
If you are familiar with Vedic Astrology, you know the term Lagna. It represents the zodiac sign rising on the eastern horizon at your birth time. Apart from the birth Lagna or Rasi Lagna, there is Chandra Lagna, Surya Lagna, Arudha Lagna (please read my blog here), and Paka Lagna, used to determine myriad aspects of the horoscope. In addition to these, Maharishi Parashara also mentions Ghatika Lagna and Hora Lagna as special ascendents. He refers to them extensively in his Brihat Parashara Hora Shatra (BPHS), the foundational work for Vedic Astrology.
Why so many ascendents or Lagnas? Vedic Astrology is an exact and complex system that understands the muti-dimensional quality of human existence. Our life is an interplay of several points in time, widely varying circumstances, outcomes, and responses, and each impacts our destiny. Ghatika Lagna is a critical player in this club of influencers.
Ghatika Lagna (GL) is calculated by noting Surya’s position at birth, birth time, sunrise, and the Sun’sSun’s longitude of the SunSun.
GL is a precise calculation based on the system of ghatis, of units of time in Sanskrit. One ghati equals 24 minutes, and each day comprises 60 ghati.
Sun changes signs every ghati or ghatika, so depending on the Sun’s position in your horoscope at the time of birth, we calculate the Ghatika Lagna.
The house and sign in which the Ghatika Lagna falls is the first house to calculate the degree of power, authority, social influence, and fame you will achieve. Ghatika Lagna is a upachaya Lagna meaning the house it occupies, and its signification will improve with time.
Ghatika Lagna corresponds to matters of the 5th and 10th Houses in a horoscope.
Why are the 5th house and 10th house integral to Ghatika Lagna?
Let’s look at what these Houses signify.
It is also known as the Putra Bhava and denotes self-expression, creativity, entertainment, the bright side of life, intelligence, wisdom, gains, principles, knowledge, astrology, and love for a spouse.
It is also known as the Karm Bhava and denotes one’s Karma, activities in life, professional success or failure, power, status, authority, foreign prospects, etc.
You can see how these attributes are linked to enjoying power and fame.
What is your mantra for success? Ghatika Lagna reveals it
Every Lagna has a mantra, and the Mantra bhava for the Lagna is the 5th House, so the 5th Lord is the Mantresha.
Similarly, based on Ghatika Lagna, the Lord of the 5th House from the Ghatika Lagna is analyzed to determine how much power you will enjoy. I have helped many politicians and wealthy businesspeople know their mantra for this heady privilege.
The issue of how much power you can wield is critical to gaining authority. For example, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a tremendous quotient of power and authority through his strong Ghatika Lagna, which is clear from his political rise. He has a great Raj Yoga, and he thrives in during crises.
Why astrologers must pay attention to Ghatika Lagna
The advantage of various Lagnas in Vedic Astrology is their ability to analyze multi-dimensional influences. The various Lagnas bring clarity on power, wealth, opportunities, and gains. They require a high level of astrological expertise to study their impact and arrive at a composite picture.
Ghatika Lagna points to power and authority as one of the most significant advantages. How it will be given, how it can be used for maximum benefit and the periods when it will work. So, it is critical to study the Ghatika Lagna.
Most astrologers simply see the 10th House (career), 11th House (gains and assets) and the 12th House (loss) in the Rasi chart to predict an individual’s prospects. It is merely the tip of the iceberg because the interplay of factors in a birth chart is deep, multi-factorial and complex.
Sage Parashara’s insights in the BPHS on Special Ascendants like Ghatika Lagna are left on the margins by astrologers leading to one-dimensional predictions. It’s the reason you feel disappointed when astrologers promise you the moon and deliver thin air. The different Lagna calculations, in tandem with the divisional charts and the maha dashas, are like a tiered cake. Every layer is integral to the final product and must be considered fully.
Do you have your power mantra? Analyze your Ghatika Lagna
Power is an elixir; few know how to take it in the proper doses. Knowing your mantra based on your birth chart and using it to evolve correctly is the purpose of achievement.
Power, authority, and influence are vital assets in business and life, and you must know when, how, and to what degree you must use them.
Ghatika Lagna reveals the secrets to this formula. So where is your Ghatika Lagna and have you taken a closer look on how can you activate it?
