Char Dasha part-5 (final) with Shool Dasha and case study of Nelson Mandela.



In other 4 parts of this series of articles we have seen use of char dasha as given by sage Parashara in his Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra. As given by K.N.Rao and as given by Mr. Irangnati Rangacharya. In this article in this chart I will use all 3 of the Char Dasha variation naming them Char Dasha – 1, 2 and 3 respectively. A caution that I will give here is by no means it is a decisive article. All of them are masters and I am no one to say someone right or wrong. My only attempt will be to see by which method results are more clearly visible. We will use normal rules of interpretation of Char Dasha as given by Sage Parashara and Jaimini in their immortal classics. But here one should keep in mind that different masters use different techniques to analyze the same. Parashara have only given rules no example chart for demonstration. K.N.Rao uses Karaka’s a lot. And Rangacharya Ji Uses all rules but as their demonstrations are very less. We will use normal analysis method and will try to find out which one is easy to use and snapshot to find event. We will be using 7 char karakas only. As Mr. Rao says it as their own original research and Rangacharya Ji also seems to be saying the same. But in Arudh Pada Calculation we will be taking exceptions into account with dual lordship of Scorpio and Aquarius.

Debilitated AK in 6th house in D9 made his soul’s journey difficult.

Gemini is 7th house with SL and GK showing end of Job (6th house matter) being 10th from 10th it shows something important related to job and as in politics their career never ends but just gets a new turn.

End of job and a new status in society. Lord of Virgo that is Natural 10th house is in 8th house that shows retirement. For better results concerned divisional charts should also be used, here I am leaving that but readers are advised to do the same.

Char dasha 3 – Pisces dasha – aspected by Shree Lagna and 10th lord from dasha sign Jupiter along with PK and 5th lord showing coming into politics but AK in 3rd there from and AmK in 8th isn’t favorable that also shows no great achievement in that period. But aspected by AL it shows the event clearly along with other factors.

1957 divorced with 1st wife

Char Dasha 1, 2 and 3 – Taurus dasha – AK is placed here debilitated. Having Venus and Ketu in same sign it shows marriage. Applying the same principle pervasively we can expand it to something related to marriage. Venus being 3rd lord from UL 8th from 8th and marriage significator that is afflicted as well as debilitated in D9 and in Maran Karak Sthan Shows Divorce. Lord of UL is in MKS (Maran Karak Sthan) from UL that have considerably damaged his UL. Being 12th from 7th it also shows the event. Taurus is also in 2nd house from Navamsha Lagna being Marak for Navamsha Lagna.

Second marriage June 1958, - 2 Daughters.

Char Dasha 1 and 3 – Taurus/Gemini - Taurus as we have seen have both Venus and Ketu Jaimini says the sign having Ketu as the most benefic sign. The sign having Ketu or Venus shows marriage and as it is in the same sign it shows very much potential for marriage being in 10th from UL it shows some marriage karma in form of divorce from one wife and marriage to another. Taurus being in 2nd from Navamsha Lagna shows end of first marriage and start of second marriage. Gemini is 7th house having A9 2nd that shows 2nd marriage being 3rd from 7th. Younger sister of first wife as Indian society takes second wife of a man. It also has Shree Lagna showing coming of shree or Lakshmi in his life. Only this Lakshmi gave him bliss of progeny that Jupiter shows naturally. Shree Lagna is very vital to time Marriage.

Char dasha 2 – Taurus/Virgo - Virgo is 2nd from UL with Mars in it that is raajyogkarak from UL and also PK showing his 2 daughters only from this marriage. This sign have Venus and Ketu in Navamsha.

Separated in 1992

Char Dasha 1 and 2 – Sagittarius dasha – being 10th from 2nd UL that is 8th from 1st UL and 12th from 2nd house that is 8th from 7th house it shows separation. As it is 10th it shows distance from home 4th house opposite showing separation for some time and being in 12th from 2nd house it shows loss of pleasures of 2nd house.

Char Dasha 3 – Pisces Dasha it is 2nd UL that is afflicted by GK and maandi but also helped and supported by Shree Lagna and PK and Jupiter but despite all these. Its affliction by Rahu in D9 (The concerned divisional chart for marital life that being 12th lord of separation from 2nd UL) shows the event.

Divorced in 1996

Char Dasha 1 and 2 – Scorpio dasha – here Rahu is placed in D1 chart that is lord of 7th marak from 9th house lord of 2nd marak from 2nd house and lord of 12th expenditure from 2nd UL and as it is not aspected by SL it failed to save the marriage and the fateful event happened. See till the time dasha of the house aspected by SL was going on it was separation not divorce. The same sign in navamsha is 8th house showing bad event related to marital life. It is also aspected by Afflicted DK and 7th lord in D1. And by afflicted DK in D9 too.


Char Dasha 3 – Pisces dasha – here it happened even after being aspected by Shree Lagna. Why so is it because next time he was going to marry his “sweetheart” Shree is manifestation of Lakshmi and what she have decided for the native only she knows. Here the same interpretation from the last analysis under separation can be used. Keeping in mind that it is also 12th from Navamsha Lagna. And if we don’t take progression of UL it will be 8th there from. Readers should think on the same to get a clear picture.

Celebrated his 80th Birthday by marrying his “Sweetheart” 52 years old “Graca Machel” on July 18, 1998 (28 Year younger)

Char Dasha 1 – Scorpio/Aries/Virgo – Scorpio is 12th house Having Rahu in it “Nest Graha” is very important in love marriage. It is 9th from 2nd UL and 2nd house of sustenance from 3rd UL. Aries is 7th from 3rd UL and 2nd from 2nd UL. In navamsha Aries is ascendant. Virgo is the 10th house 2nd from Primary UL and 12th from 3rd UL. Virgo also has Venus and Ketu in Navamsha.


Char Dasha 2 – Scorpio/Taurus/Taurus – Taurus is 6th house with Ketu and Venus in it is 8th from 3rd UL and 10th from 1st UL and 11th from DK.


Char Dasha 3 – Pisces/Leo/Taurus – Pisces is aspected by SL in D1 and also it is 8th from 1st UL and 6th from 3rd UL. From Pisces there is MKS Mars in 7th house and for this reason this dasha have shown him divorces and re-marriages too. Leo is the sign having UL and A7 showing Love marriage as well as normal marriage. Taurus is having Ketu and Venus combination.


· On January 6, 2005. Mandela’s 54 Year old son died of septic shock and pneumonia associated with AIDS. He was only surviving son of South African Leader.


For death and related matters Char dasha can be used but it being an Falit dasha is not appropriate for this work thus we will use Shool dasha for this and next event.


Middle life – taking 5th house as ascendant Lagna lord in 6th house is weak. 8th lord in 6th house is powerful making Vipreet Raajyoga. And 10th lord in 4th house in cancer with friend Mercury and 5th lord Sun are powerful also for the reason that his aspects on his own 10th house and for this reason 2 factors being powerful out of 3 he had middle life 40-80 years. He was 54 years old.


Shool dasha for 5th house – Cancer/Aquarius/Taurus – cancer is having afflicted 10th lord Saturn, aspected by 11th lord Rahu that shows punishment and also death. “Tanu tanou danda harah” lord of cancer being in 7th house from 5th house made it more Marak. Aspected by Rahu it was to produce bad event. Also it is in trine to 8th house from 5th house. Lord of Aquarius Rahu is in 8th from 5th house and another lord is in 4th house there from afflicting ascendant lord Mars by his 3rd aspect. Trine from Aquarius has Rudra Yoga with Moon aspected by Venus that is essential for death in shool dasha. Taurus is 2nd house where Prani Rudra Venus is placed in and it is also in trine to Aprani Rudra Mars and is making Rudra yoga all conditions fulfilled.

Mandela died on 5th December 2013 at his home, after several moth of fighting with Pneumonia (aged 95)

Age determination – Lagna + Hora Lagna = Long Life, Lagna Lord + 8th lord = Short Life, Moon + Saturn = Short Life. As two things shows Short life but as Jupiter is in 7th house it show Kakshya Vriddhi. And as Saturn or moon is not in 1st 7th house. Lagna and Hora Lagna shall prevail. Lagna lord is in 7th house powerful. 8th lord is in 11th house powerful and 10th lord is in 8th house weak as two factors is powerful it shows middle life, but as 10th house is strong under virtue of a Dikbali planet we can take 10th house as powerful too. Making it to long life.


We will also use char dasha here to time death but readers should keep in mind that there are longevity dasha in Jaimini and that should be used for this purpose.


Char Dasha 1 – Virgo/Capricorn/Virgo – Virgo is 10th house only whose lord is weak in the pairs and also its lord is in 8th house. Saturn is aspecting Virgo that is 3rd lord. 8th form 8th and Virgo have 12th lord mars. Capricorn is 2nd house that is a marak house.


Char Dasha 2 – Cancer/Pisces/Gemini – Cancer is 8th house, Pisces is 4th house afflicted by 12th lord Mars and Maheshwar Jupiter. Gemini is 7th house Marak where Maheshwar Jupiter is placed in and Pisces is Marak from AL being in 7th there from.


Char Dasha 3 – Scorpio/Pisces/Sagittarius – Scorpio is 12th house with Rahu in it. It is also in trine to 8th house and Pisces and Sagittarius both are aspected by Maheshwar Jupiter and 12th lord Mars.


Shool dasha – Aries/Taurus/Cancer – Aries is trine to Lagna but also trine to UL and A7. Lord of Aries is in 10th house afflicting the 3rd cornerstone of 3 longevity builders. It Is in 8th from Arudh Lagna. Taurus is 6th house with AK this should not kill but that AK is malefic being debilitated in Navamsha and is with Ketu the karaka of emancipation and forming Rudra Yoga in the sign that is important for death in shool dasha. Cancer is 8th house where Aprani Rudra is placed in along with 10th lord the weakest among 3 longevity building blocks.


Conditions around death have to be seen in 3rd from AL there is Rahu in Scorpio Rahu being like Saturn shows disease surrounding death. Pneumonia is also a Rahuvian disease. It is in a fixed sign Scorpio showing death in his own home.
