Sudarshan Chakra’ Periods & Sub-Periods

It is an experimentally 'modified' form of CHAKRA DASHA – which has been mentioned in the list of Dashas in Brihat Parashara Hora Shashtra (Vol.- 2). For maintaining a clear distinction, and also for the fact that placement of planets reckoned from three different points – Ascendant, Moon, and Sun – as these are in the popularly used Sudarshan Chakra, the name had been suitably changed.

In this method, there are 12 Major Periods of equal duration – of 10 years each. There are 10 Sub-Periods in any Major Period, and every Sub-Period is of equal duration – of 1 year each . Starting from the respective signs of commencement, the Sub-periods run in regular zodiacal order.

For the commencing Major-period, the 'Effective' Ascendant is the sign occupied by Jupiter (as considered in certain Nadi-grantha). It will remain the same for 10 years. Thereafter, the next sign from the position will become the 'Effective' Ascendant, and it will remain so for 10 years (from the 11th year to the 20th year), and so on.

The commencing Minor-period signs are the combination of (Ascendant-sign, Moon-sign, and Sun-sign). Then regardless of the operating Major-period, the succeeding Minor-periods of 1 year each will follow in regular zodiacal order – starting from each of the commencing Minor-period signs.

Minor-period Sign from Ascendant = Expunger12 (Ascendant + Elapsed Age-period – 1)

Minor-period Sign from Moon = Expunger12 (Moon Sign + Elapsed Age-period – 1)

Minor-period Sign from Sun = Expunger12 (Sun Sign + Elapsed Age-period – 1)

The planets situated in these three Minor-period signs are the 'Influencing Planets', and the results of their influences will be gleamed with reference to the 'Effective Ascendant' operating at that age-period (that is, till the age of 10, it is the sign occupied by Jupiter; then up to the age of 20, the next sign from it; then up to the age of 30, the further next sign, and so on).

If for a particular age-period, it is seen that there is no Influencing planet as mentioned above, then the results will be determined from the Secondary Influencing Planets – which are:

(1) The Lord of the 'Effective Ascendant'.

(2) Planet(s) conjoined with the lord of the 'Effective Ascendant' – if any.

(3) Planet(s) situated in the 'Effective Ascendant' – if any.

(4) Planet(s) aspecting the 'Effective Ascendant' – if any.

(5) Planet(s) aspecting the lord of the 'Effective Ascendant' – if any.

In case of the below given Example-1, during the period of the 30th (Varhaspatya) year, it is seen that there are no (Primary) Influencing Planets. As such, the Secondary Influencing Planets will indicate the results to expect:

(1) The Lord of the 'Effective Ascendant' (Pisces): Jupiter.

(2) Planet(s) conjoined with the lord of the 'Effective Ascendant': Venus.

(3) Planet(s) situated in the 'Effective Ascendant': None.

(4) Planet(s) aspecting the 'Effective Ascendant': Moon.

(5) Planet(s) aspecting the lord of the 'Effective Ascendant': None.

Example-1: Male; DOB 18/ 12/ 1973; Virgo - Ascendant & Moon, Scorpio – Mercury, Sagittarius – Sun & Rahu, Capricorn – Jupiter & Venus, Aries – Mars, and Gemini – Saturn (R) & Ketu.

For the person with the Lagna-Kundali as given above, the Major-periods and Sub-periods for a few years will be as under:
