Kaal Chakra Dashaa

Note: Kaal and Chakra Dashaa are two independent Dashaa systems and have nothing to do with Kaal Chakra Dashaa.

This is another diagnostic tool for astrologers. Kaal Chakra Dashaa to be applied if the Moon's Navaansh Lord is strong. (Kaal Chakra
Dasagneyam Chandraanshese Balanvite). In other cases Udu Dasa can be applied. (Sada Nakshatra Margena Dashaa balavatee smritah). This tool is followed by some experts. When the Moon's Navaansh  Lord is more powerful this Dashaa should be applied intoto to get the correct prognosis.

[BPHS, Ch. 46]
52-53. Maharshi Paraashar said - "O Brahmin! Now, after making obedience to Lord Shiva, I shall describe the Kaal Chakra Dashaa. Whatever was related by Lord Shiva to Goddess Paarvatee, is being explained by me for the use of sages to be utilized for the welfare of the people.

54-55. By drawing vertical and horizontal lines, prepare 2 Kundalees, Savya and Apsavya, of 12 apartments (Koshthas) each. From the second Koshtha in each Kundali fix the Raashis Mesh, Vrishabh, Mithun, Kark, Sinh, Kanyaa, Tulaa, Vrischik, Dhanu, Makar, Kumbh, Meen. Then Nakshatra may be incorporated in the manner, indicated hereafter. These Kundalees, indicative of the 12 Raashis, are called Kaal Chakra.

56-58. Write Ashwinee, Bharanee and Krittikaa in the Savya Chakra and Rohinee, Mrigashiraa, Aardraa in the Apsavya Cgakra. Then incorporate the three following Nakshatra - Punarvasu, Pushya and Aslesha in the Savya and Maghaa, P-phaalgunee and U-phaalgunee in the Apsavya. Then incorporate the three following Nakshatra, Hast, Chitraa and Swaati in the Savya Chakra and Vishaakhaa, Anuraadhaa and Jyeshthaa in the Apasavya Chakra. Then incorporate Mool, P-Aashaadhaa and U-Aashaadhaa in the Savya Chakra and Shravan, Dhanishthaa and Shatabhishaa in the Apsavya Chakra. Finally incorporate the last three Nakshatra - P-Bhaadrapad, U-Bhaadrapad and Revatee in the Savya Chakra. Now there will be 15 Nakshatra in the Savya Chakra and 12 Nakshatra in the Apasavya Chakra, (because for the 12 Raashi there are 12 Pad of 3 Nakshatra, the Navaansh). The Pad of Ashwinee, Punarvasu, Hast, Mool, P-Bhadrapada, Krittikaa, Aashleshaa, Swaati, U-Aashaadhaa and Revatee of the Savya should be reckoned in the same manner, as the Pad of Ashwinee.

59. Now I shall describe in detail, how the Deha and Jeeva should be reckoned in the Pad (quarters) of the Nakshatra.

Sequence of Mahaa Dashaa in Kaal Chakra Dashaa

[Ashwinee, Punarvasu, Hast, Mool, P-Bhaadrapad, Krittikaa, Aashleshaa, Swaati, U-Aashaadhaa, Revatee]
60. In the first Pad of Ashwinee, Mesh is indicative of Deha (body) and Dhanu is indicative of Jeev (life). And the Lords of Mesh, Vrishabh, Mithun, Kark, Sinh, Kanyaa, Tulaa, Vrishchik and Dhanu are Lords of the Dashaa in the order, as described before.

61. In the second Pad of Ashwinee, Makar is Deha and Mithun is Jeev and the Lords of the 9 Raashis - from Makar to Mithun are Lords of the Dashaa.

62. In the third Pad of the 10 Nakshatra, beginning from Ashwinee, Vrishabh is Deha and Mithun is Jeev. The Lords of the Raashis Vrishabh, Mesh, Meen, Kumbh, Makar, Dhanu, Mesh, Vrishabh and Mithun are Lords of the Dashaa in that order.

63-64. For the 4th Pad of the 10 Nakshatra, beginning from Ashwinee, Kark is Deha and Meen is Jeev and the Lords of the 9 Raashis from Kark to Meen are the Lords of Dash as.

[Bharanee, Pushya, Chitraa, P-Aashadha, U-Bhaadrapad]
65. In the four Pad of the 5 Nakshatra, Bharanee, Pushya, Chitraa, P-Aashaadhaa and U-Bhaadrapad, Deha and Jeeva are the same, as for Bharanee.

66. In the first Pad of Bharanee, Vrishik is Deha and Meen is Jeev and the Lords of the Raashi Vrishchik, Tulaa, Kanyaa, Kark, Sinh, Mithun, Vrishabh, Mesh and Meen are the Lords of Dashaa in this order.

67. In the 2nd Pad of Bharanee, Kumbh is Deha and Kanyaa is Jeev and the Lords of Kumbh, Makar, Dhanu, Mesh, Vrishabh, Mithun, Kark, Sinh and Kanyaa are the Lords of Dashaa in that order.

68. In the 3rd Pad of Bharanee, Tulaa is Deha and Kanyaa is Jeev and Lords of the Raashi Tulaa, Vrishchik, Dhanu, Makar, Kumbh, Meen, Vrishchik, Tulaa and Kanyaa are the Dashaa Lords in this order.

69. In the 4th Pad of Bharanee, Kark is Deha and Kumbh is Jeeva and the Lords of the Raashi Kark, Sinh, Mithun, Vrishabh, Mesh, Meen, Kumbh, Makar and Dhanu are the Dasha Lords in this order.

[Rohinee, Maghaa, Vishaakhaa, Shravan]
71-72. O Brahmin! I have thus given you the description of Savya Chakra. Now I shall give the description of Apsavya Chakra. Prepare a similar chart of 12 apartments and from the 2nd apartment onwards place the Raashi from Vrishchik onwards in the reverse order. In this chart Deha and Jeev would be the same for Rohinee, Maghaa, Vishaakhaa and Shravan, as for Rohinee.

73-76. In the first Pad of Rohinee, Karka is Deh and Dhanu is Jeev. The Lords of the Raashi Dhanu, Makar, Kumbh, Meen, Mesh, Vrishabh, Mithun, Sinh and Tulaa will be the Dashaa Lords in this order.

In the 2nd Pad of Rohinee, Tulaa will be Deha and Kanyaa the Jeev and the Lords of the Raashi Kanyaa, Tulaa, Vrishik, Meen, Kumbh, Makar, Dhanu, Vrishchik and Vrishchik will be the Dashaa Lords.

In the 3rd Pad of Rohinee Kumbh will be Deha and Kanya Jeeva. The Lords of the Raashi Kanyaa, Sinh, Kark, Mithun, Vrishabh, Mesh, Dhanu, Makar and Kumbh will be the Dashaa Lords. In the 4th Vrishchik will be Deha and Meen Jeev and the Lords of the Raashi Meen, Mesh, Vrishabh, Mithun, Sinh, Kark, Kanyaa, Tulaa and Vrishik will be the Lords.

[Mrigashiraa, Aardraa, P-Phaalgunee, U-Phaalgunee, Anuraadhaa, Jyesthaa, Dhanisthaa, Shatabhishaa]
77. In the 4 Pad of the Apasavya Nakshatra, Mrigashiraa, Aardra, P-Phaalgunee, U-Phaalgunee, Anuraadhaa, Jyeshthaa, Dhanishthaa and Shatabhishaa the Deha and Jeev and the Dashaa Lords will be the same, as for Mrigashiraa.

78-81. In the first Pad of Mrigashiraa Kark is Deha and Meen is Jeev and the Lords of the Raashi Meen, Kumbh, Makar, Dhanu, Vrishchik, Tulaa, Kanyaa, Sinh and Kark will be the Dashaa Lords in this order.

In the 2nd Pad of Mrigshiraa, Vrishabh is Deha and Mithun is Jeev and the Lords of the Raashi Mithun, Vrishabh, Mesh, Dhanu, Makar, Kumbh, Meen, Mesh and Vrishabh will be the Dashaa Lords.

In the 3rd Pad of Mrigshiraa, Makar is Deha and Mithun is Jeev and the Lords of the Raashi Mithun, Sinh, Kark, Kanyaa, Tulaa, Vrishchik, Meen, Kumbh and Makar will be the Dashaa Lords.

In the 4th Pad of Mrigshiraa, Mesh will be Deha and Dhanu Jeev and the Lords of the Raashi Dhanu, Vrishik, Tulaa, Kanyaa, Sinh, Kark, Mithun, Vrishabh and Mesh will be the Dashaa Lords.

82. Maharishi Paraashar said. O Braahman! The description of the Deha and Jeeva of the Pad of the Apasavya Nakshatra and the Dashaa Lords is the same, as narrated by Lord Mahaadev to Goddess Paarvatee.

Spans of Dashaa Periods
83. Maitreya said. O Venerable Maharishi Parashara! Now please guide me about the Dashaa spans of the Dashaa Lords, described by you. Please also demonstrate, how the commencement of the Dashaa, its expired and the remaining periods at the birth are to be calculated.

84. Maharishi Parashara said. 5, 21, 7, 9, 10, 16 and 4 years are the Dashaa spans of Soorya, Chandra, Mangal, Budh, Guru, Shukra and Shani.

Dashaa Commencing from Nakshatra Pad

85-86. The span of life of a person is determined from the Pad Ansh) of the Nakshatra at the time of birth, or the time of query and the years allotted to the 9 Raashi, commencing from it (the Pad of the Nakshatra). Some sages are of the view, that the person will enjoy full span of life (Poorn Aayu), if his birth is at the commencement of any Pad, will have middle span of life (Madhya Aayu), if the birth is in the middle of the Pad and short span of life (Alpa Aaayu), or will face death-like sufferings, if the birth is at the end of the Pad of the Nakshatra.

Calculation of Dashaa
87-88. According to this principle, we should be acquainted with the Pad of the Nakshatra. Now I shall tell you, how the calculations are made, according to the proportion of the Pad of a Nakshatra. The number of Ashwinee etc, whichever may be the past Nakshatra, should be divided by 3. Thereafter the remainder should be multiplied by 4. To the figure so made available the Pada of the present Nakshatra should be added. The product will be the Navaansh from Mesh onwards.

89. The number of years (Poorn Aayu) are, as under. For the Amsa in Mesh 100 years, in Vrishabh 85 years, in Mithun 83 years, in Kark 86 years. The number of years will be the same for Raashi, situated the 5th and 9th to them.

90-91. Multiply the past Ghatikaa, Pal etc. of the Pad of the Nakshatra, in which a person is born, by the existing Dashaa years and divide it by 15. The result will indicate the expired period of the Dashaa in years, months etc. By deducting it from the total number of years allotted, we get the balance of Dashaa at birth. The Dashaa should be taken, as commencing from that Raashi.

92. Multiply the past Ghatikaa, Pal etc. of the present Pad of the Nakshatra by the number of years and divide the product by the fourth part of Bhabhog. The years etc. so obtained may then be deducted from the total Dashaa period. The result will be the balance of Dashaa at birth in years, months etc.

93. The past Kalaa (minutes) of the Navaansh, in which Chandra may be placed, should be multiplied by the years, allotted to the Dashaa and the product should be divided by 200. The resulting years etc. will be the expired portion of the Dashaa. By deducting them from the total number of years the balance of the Dashaa at birth is obtained.

Deha and Jeev for Savya and Apasavya Chakra
94-95. In the Savya Chakra the first Ansh is called Deha and the last Jeev. The opposite is the case in the Apasavya Chakra. Therefore the calculations should be based on the Deha etc in the Savya Chakra and on the Jeev etc. in Apasavya Chakra.

Gati of Raashi in the Kaal Chakra
96-98. There are three kinds of movements (Gati) of the Raashi in the Kaal Chakra, namely Mandukee, Markatee and Sinhaavalokan.

The movement of one Raashi by jumping over one Raashi is known, as Mandukee Gati.
Backward movement to the previous Raashi is called Markatee Gati.
The movement of a Raashi to the 5th and 9th Raashi is said to be Sinhaavalokan.

99-100. Movement from Kanyaa to Kark and from Sinh to Mithun is Mandukee Gati.
Movement from Sinh to Kark is Markatee Gati.
Movement from Meen to Vrishchik and from Dhanu to Mesh is called Sinhaavalokan Gati.

Note by Revati:
Effects of these Gati are described in Shlok 101-119; Shlok 120-146 describe effects of Dashaa periods in various Ansh, whole chapter 49 of BPHS as well.

Kaal Chakra Dashaa

[Phal Deepikaa, Ch. 22]
1. (A) Three Nakshatra from Ashwinee, viz. Ashwinee, Bharanee and Krittikaa comprise of 12 quarters. Aries, Taurus, Gemini and Cancer are the four Navaansh of Ashwinee. Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio will be the four Navaansh of Bharanee. Sagittarius Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces will be the four Navaansh of Krittikaa. In this order (Apasavya or Apradakhina order) divide the three Nakshatra by the 12 Navaanshs.

(B) There will be 12 Navaansh of three Nakshatra from Rohinee viz, Rohinee, Mrigashiraa and Aardraa counting them in reverse order from Scorpio i.e. Scorpio, Libra, Virgo, Leo, Cancer, Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn and Sagittarius, divide them by the 12 Navaansh. Scorpio will be the Navaansh of the first quarter of Rohinee, Libra will be the Navaansh of 2nd quarter of Rohinee and so on ultimately finding that in this order Sagittarius will be the Navaansh of the fourth quarter of Aridraa. (This is known as Savya-reverse, A-Pradakshina or anticlockwise order).

2. These are the trends of Nakshatra reckoned in their order (from Ashwinee) to be distinguished as Apasavya and Savya. The years assigned to a planet constitute the Dashaa period of the sign owned by that planet. This is the peculiarity in the Kaal Chakra system, say the wise.

3. The Sun's Dashaa period is 5 years (Leo is the sign owned by the Sun, therefore Dashaa period of Leo will be 5 years).
The Dashaa period of the Moon is 21 years (the Dashaa of Cancer owned by the Moon will be the same).
The Dashaa of Mars will be of 7 years (the Dashaa of Aries and Scorpio will be the same).
The Dashaa of Mercury will be 9 years (the Dashaa period of Gemini and Virgo owned by Mercury will be the same).
The Dashaa of Jupiter will be 10 years (the Dashaa of Sagittarius and Pisces owned by Jupiter will be the same).
The Dashaa of Venus will be of 16 years (the Dashaa period of Taurus and Libra owned by Venus will be the same).
The Dashaa of Saturn will be of 4 years (the Dashaa period of Capricorn and Aquarius owned by Saturn will be the same).

The effects of Kaal Chakra Dashaa are to be declared on the basis of the sign whose Dashaa be in progress and its Lord.

4. In this Kaal Chakra system consisting of Dashaa, Antar-Dashaa, etc, I shall now expound the formula for the several Nakshatra Pad from Ashwinee onwards. Every such formula consists of nine syllables indicating by their number (as per Katapayadi memories) the particular Rasyapaharas composing the Dashaa of the Nakshatra Pad under consideration and consequently by total life period appertaining thereto by means of the years allotted to the several owners of the signs.

Described an order of Dashaa for the 4 Pad of Ashwinee, Bharanee, Rohinee and Mrigshiraa, there are in all 27 Nakshatra. For the remaining 23 Nakshatra (each has four Pad) the order of their Dashaa will be the same as for the above four Nakshatra as explained below:
(a) The order of the Dashaa of the four Pad of Krittikaa, Punarvasu, Aashleshaa, Hast, Swaati, Mool, U-Aashaadhaa, P-Bhadraa and Revatee will be the same as for Ashwinee.
(b) The order of the Dashaa of the four Pad of Pushya, Chitraa, P-Aashaadhaa, U-Bhadra will be the same as for Bharanee.
(c) The order of the Dashaa of the four Pad of Maghaa, Vishaakhaa and Shravan will be the same as for Rohinee.
(d) The order of the Dashaa of the four Pad of Aardraa, P-Phaalgunee, U-Phaalgunee, Anuraadhaa, Jyesthaa, Dhanishthaa and Shatabhishaa will be the same as for Mrigashiraa.

1st Mahaa Dashaa
10. The initial Mahaa Dashaa of a life belongs to the Lord of the sign owning the Nakshatra Pad occupied by the Moon at the time of birth, being so much of the sign Mahaa Dashaa as corresponds to the Ghatikaa that yet remain of the Nakshatra Pad and the order of Mahaa Dashaa follows the natural order of the Nakshatra Pad reckoned from the aforesaid one. This is the opinion, say the sages, held by some learned in Astrology.

Note by Revati:
According to Mantreswara, the first Maha Dashaa of Kaal Chakra Dashaa is directly started from the Navaansh in which Moon is posited and its Lord.

11. There are number of formulas each composed of a number of mnemonic syllables, referring to the several nakshatra Pad beginning with the first Pad of Ashwinee and giving signs in a certain order. It is with reference to the order of sign in these formulas that the Raashi Mahaa Dashaa of which a life is to consist should be determined. The Vaakya Kram, men of one school say, should be adhered to.

12. In the order of sign Vaakya Kram, the function at the end of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces give rise to (1) Mandook Gati, (2) Ashwa or Turag Gati and (3) Sinhaavalokan respectively and the Dashaa of those intervals cause woeful effects.

13. The sub-period of any of the planets constituting a Mahaa Dashaa is thus obtained. Find out the mnemonic syllable (out of the nine syllables) composing a formula whose sub-period is wanted and find out the owner of the sign signified by that syllable. Multiply the number of years assigned to this planet by the number of years fixed for the planet whose Mahaa Dashaa is under consideration and divide the product by the total of years constituting the entire Ayus of the formula chakra. The quotient in years etc., will represent the sub-period required.

14. The total number of years indicated by the Sun of nine mnemonical syllables of any formula represent the number in years of Param Aayus for that formula. Thus the Param Aayus in years for the 12 Raashi Amsas reckoned from Aries in an Apasavya Chakra will be 100, 85, 83, 86 repeated thrice while those for the 12 Raashi Amsas reckoned from Scorpio in a Savya Chakra will be the same but in the reverse order, that is 86, 83, 85 and 100 repeated thrice.

30. Kaal Chakra Dashaa system has to be resorted to only when the lord of the Navaamsa occupied by the Moon is strong. The Dashaa calculation as per nakshatra method is always considered as the best.

Kaal Chakra Dashaa

Kaal Chakra Dashaa is based on the Navaansh in natal chart in which the Moon is placed in and follows very special and complicated rules. It is a very complexly calculated Dashaaa with a very particular sequence of Mahaa Dashaas and Antar-Dashaas (main and sub planetary periods.) There is discussion about the correct calculation of Kaal Chakra Dashaa, and JHora offers six options to use - but only one is correct.

Kaal Chakra is the 'wheel of time'. It is part of the three most important Dashaas - Mool, Vimshottaree and Kaal Chakra Dashaa - and very time sensitive: One minute in birth time variation results in three months in Mahaa Dashaa cycle! This means, only 20 seconds variation in birth time results in one month in MD cycle, 5 seconds in one week. Therefore Kaal Chakra Dashaa is very suited for final birth time rectification.

Note: Next important Dashaa are Conditional Dashaa (and one CD is always applicable!) , Naaraayan or Chara Dashaa and Kaal Dashaa. Varnad and Niraayan Shool Dashaa are Aayur-Dashaa, related to longevity in general and endings/problems of all kinds in particular.

Use
Kaal Chakra Dashaa - as based on Navaansh - is closely connected to 9th Bhaav themes. It is the Dashaa of our Dharm, our life purpose and goals we have to achieve. It points at new experiences we have to make in order to fulfill our Dharma. This way it shows chances and problems, opportunities and obstacles.

Kaal Chakra Dashaa shows the evolution of our Self, our personality and individuality and the development of our hidden potential due to our Dharma. It shows evolution of your hidden potential and experiences enabling it, the development of your personality - it shows opportunities and fortunes, but dangers and problems as well, - you have to look at first in your D-9 chart, then in your D-1 to make correct predictions.

Kaal Chakra Dashaa - a highly reliable Dashaa - in fact indicates nothing but the evolution of your Dharma in this incarnation! See next paragraph for more indications of 9th Bhaav, Navaansh and resulting thereof for Kaal Chakra Dashaa.

D-9 Navaansh
A Navaamsh of a Rashi comprises of 320', Navaamsh Varg follows a regular mapping to signs throughout the whole zodiac.

Navaansh are identical with Nakshatra Pad, which divide a lunar mansion (Nakshatra) into four equal parts. Therefore they have a particular relationship with the Nakshatra they divide and are generally related to the Bhaav Kaarak of the 9th Bhaava, Jupiter.

All indications from 9th Bhaav can be derived from Graha's placements in Navaansh: Dharm (life goals, life purpose), fortunes, growth in life, success, potential, hidden forces and strengths (of Graha), unconscious disposition and direction of the mind (with regard to one's own Dharm, potential, which normally is more unconscious than conscious), spirituality and religiosity, philosophy of life.

A planet posited in a particular Amsa of D-9 (Nav-ansh) hints at our future and points at the direction of the planet in which he wants to go. It is a traffic sign indicating us the direction where to go - and this for each single planet, regarding his natural and functional significations.

A planet placed in the same Raashi in D-1 and D-9 is called Vargottam and is comparable with a Graha in Swasth Avasthaa - very strong, confident and happy. Extending this rule, all planets in same Raashis (or even exalted) in D-1 and a particular Varg are endowed with strengths and quality with regard to the topic of this Varg.

Introduction to Kaal Chakra Dashaa

Kaal Chakra Dashaa is based on Nakshatra Pad/Navaansh. Each Navaansh is linked with a very particular sequence of Raashis in Kaal Chakra Dashaa (KCD). In Kaal Chakra Dasa, Nakshatra are divided into two types or 'cycles': Savya and Apasavya. The sequence of Savya and Apasavya cycle occurs in the normal counting of the Nakshatra throughout the zodiac, with the sequence 3 Savya Nakshatra - 3 Apasavya Nakshatra - 3 Savya Nakshatra - 3 Apasavya Nakshatra - 3 Savya Nakshatra - 3 Apasavya Nakshatra - 3 Savya Nakshatra.

Savya I: Ashwinee, Bharanee, Krittikaa
Apasavya II: Rohinee, Mrigshiraa, Aardraa
Savya II: Punarvasu, Pushya, Aashleshaa
Apasavya III: Maghaa, PPhaalgunee, U-Phaalgunee
Savya III: Hast, Chitraa, Swaati
Apasavya III: Vishaakhaa, Anuraadhaa, Jyesthaa
Savya IV: Moola, P-Aashaadhaa, U-Ashaadhaa
Apasavya IV: Shravan, Dhanisthaa, Shatabhishaa
Savya V: P-Bhaadrapadaa, U-Bhadrapadaa, Revatee

The first Dashaa period in KCD is called 'Deha' (body) in Savya cycle and 'Jiva' (life) in Savya cycle.
The last Dashaa period in KCD is called 'Jiva' (life) in Savya cycle and 'Deha' (body) in Apasavya cycle.
Reference and starting point of KCD is the Moon Nakshatra and Nakshatra Pad/Navaansh in your Natal chart.

Calculation and Sequence of Maha-dashaas
There are four different Mahaa Dashaa cycles in KCD:

(1) Sequence of Ashwinee (Savya Cycle)
This sequence is valid for Ashwinee, Punarvasu, Hast, Mool, P-Bhaadrapad, Krittikaa, Aashleshaa, Swaati, U-Aashaadhaa and Revatee Nakshatra.

Ashwinee etc, 1st Pad: Deha Aries, Jeev Sagittarius
Dashaa Sequence: Lords of Aries (Deha), Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius (Jeev)

Ashwinee etc, 2nd Pad: Deha Capricorn, Jeev Gemini
Dashaa Sequence: Lords of Capricorn (Deha), Aquarius, Pisces, Scorpio, Libra, Virgo, Cancer, Leo, Gemini (Jeev)

Ashwinee etc, 3rd Pad: Deha Taurus, Jeev Gemini

We see lot of irregular Dashaa periods, changing the directions of periods and jumping signs back forward and backward. These jumps are called 'Ghatees', movements of Pad. Each movement has its signification and will be explained later on.

Mahaa Dashaa Spans:
Sun (Leo): 5 years
Moon (Cancer): 21 years
Mars (Aries, Scorpio): 7 years
Mercury (Virgo, Gemini): 9 years
Jupiter (Sagittarius, Pisces): 10 years
Venus (Libra, Taurus): 16 years
Saturn (Aquarius, Capricorn): 4 years

Regarding Mool Trikon as the respectively roots of planetary energies, this table gets slightly modified:
Leo (Sun): 5 years
Taurus, Cancer (Moon, Venus) : 21 years
Aries, Scorpio (Mars, Ketu): 7 years
Virgo, Gemini (Mercury, Raahu): 9 years
Sagittarius, Pisces (Jupiter, Ketu): 10 years
Libra, Taurus (Venus, Moon): 16 years
Aquarius, Capricorn (Saturn, Raahu): 4 years

Calculation of the first Mahaa Dashaa Period
BPHS seems to be misunderstood, Mantreswara explains it in clear words:
The first (initial) Mahaa Dashaa of Kaal Chakra Dashaa starts with the sign where the Moon is posited in. With other words: "The Navaansh Sign of the natal Moon" is the very first Mahaa Dashaa Period.
This proves: Calculation method Ranghacharya (in JHora) is the only correct one.

[Phal Deepikaa by Mantreswara, Sloka 10)

The initial Mahaa Dashaa of a period (a native's life) belongs to the lord of the sign owning the Nakshatra Pad occupied by the Moon at the time of birth, being so much of the sign Mahaa Dashaa as corresponds to the Ghatikaa that yet remain of the Nakshatra Pad and the order of Mahaa Dashaa follows the natural order of the Nakshatra Pad reckoned from the aforesaid one. This is the opinion, say the sages, held by some learned in Astrology.

Calculation and Sequence of Antar-Dashaa
Antar-Dashaas of Mahaa Dashaa follows the same sequence as given above for Mahaa Dashaa, with all its irregularities.

This means: Antar-Dashaa in KCD does not start with Mahaa Dashaa Lord (as in all other Nakshatra Dashaa, called 'Udu Dashaa') but with the particular Lord/ Navaansh Sign as explained above. I will post related effects ofAntar-Dasa periods in BPHS, there you'll see each Antar-Dashaa sequence for each Mahaa Dashaa.

BPHS in Ch. 46, 49, 50 and 65 gives examples of correct Antar-Dashaa cycle for each Mahaa Dashaa (and each Mahaa Dashaa has another Antar-Dashaa cycle!), which proves that Antar-Dashaas in Kaal Chakra Dasa do *not* start with Mahaa Dashaa Lord, as generally usual in Dashaa.

BPHS, Ch. 46, 49 (especially this one!), 50, 65, Effects of Aquarius/Kumbh Dashaa
'In Kumbh in the Dashaa of
... Vrishabh Ansh there will be financial gains,
Mesh - diseases of the eyes,
Meen - journeys to distant places,
Kumbh - increase in wealth,
Makar - success in all kinds of ventures,
Dhanu - more enemies,
Mesh - loss of happiness and enjoyment,
Vrishabh - death,
Mithun - well being.

Dashaa of Kumbh Ansh.
Shukra - many kinds of educational attainments, gains of property, happiness from wife and children, sound health and increase in wealth.
... Mangal - fevers, danger from fire and from enemies, distress from enemies and mental agony.
... Shani - danger of troubles from wind, bile and phlegm, quarrels, foreign journey, danger of suffering from tuberculosis.
... Guru - freedom from ill health, happiness, honors from the king and joy.
... Budh - happiness from wife, children and wealth, joy, increase in good fortune.

Kumbh Ansh
Vrishabh - increase in wealth,
Mesh - eye troubles,
Meen - travels to distant lands,
Kumbh - increase in wealth,
Makar - success in all ventures,
Dhanu - increase in knowledge and learning,
Mesh - loss of happiness,
Vrishabh - danger of death,
Mithun - gains of property, happiness.'

Therefore, taking Aquarius (Kumbh) as an example, "the only correct sequence of AD for Aquarius/ Kumbh MD" can be:
[Aquarius/Kumbh MD:] Taurus/Vrishabh - Aries/Mesh - Pisces/Meen - Aquarius/Kumbh - Capricorn/Makar - Sagittarius/Dhanu - Aries/Mesh (Sinhaavalokan Gati, 'lion's leap', and change of direction to forward!) - Taurus/Vrishabh - Gemini/Mithun

Interpretation of Kaal Chakra Dashaa

There are two ways of interpreting Kaal Chakra Dashaa:
1. The normal way you analyze Graha in Raashi Ansh.
2. The particular way of Kaal Chakra, including the concept of Deha/Jeev and the three Gati (leaps) possible in Antar-Dashaa. This approach will be explained in the following paragraphs.

Interpreting the KCD in the standard way, we have to include in our interpretation:
- the Dashaa Navaansh (D-9) (equal to a Nakshatra Pad) of a MD / AD / PD Period: Sign, Graha in it, Graha in Kendra and Trikon to it, Raashi Drishti to it, Lord of the Sign with planets in it
- the Nakshatra where this Navaansh is placed in
- the Raashi where this Nakshatra is placed in natal chart (D-1), placements of Graha in Varg
- the 'divisions' of the Navaansh: Bhaansh (D-27), Nava-Navaansh (D-81) and Akshaved-Ansh (D-45) with planets in them
- the Horaa and Drekkan the Navaansh is placed in Bhaansh (106'40") divide a Navaansh (320') by 3, Akshavedaansh (040') by 5 and Nava-Navaansh (022'22") by 9 (they are a real subdivision of Navaansh).

For Very Beginners:
Mahaa Dashaa (MD) are the main planetary periods, divided by sub-periods called Antar-Dashaa (AD). Sub-periods are divided by sub-sub-periods called Pratyantar Dashaa (PD), which are subdivided by sub-sub-sub-periods called Sookshm Sashaa (SD), which can be further subdivided into Praan Dashaa (PrD).

General Dashaa Analysis Structure
1. Natural significations of the Dashaa Lord
2. Functional significations of the Dashaa Lord (lordship over Bhaava(s), Dashaa Lord as Chara Kaarak)
3. Attributes and qualities of the Nakshatra the current Dashaa Lords are posited in (MD, AD, PD Nakshatra)
4. Attributes and qualities of the Raashi/Bhaav where this Nakshatra is posited in, and Drishtis on it
5. Attributes and qualities of the Nakshatra which this planet rules
6. Attributes and qualities Ansh of the Nakshatra/Raashi where this Nakshatra is placed in (MD, AD, PD Lord in Varg)
7. Strengths (Shad Bal, Vinshopak Bal) and Avasthaa of the Dashaa Lords (MD, AD, PD)

- and -
8. Position of Antar-Dashaa Lord with regard to Mahaa Dashaa Lord, of Pratyantar Dashaa Lord with regard to Antar-Dashaa Lord, of Sookshm Dashaa Lord with regard to Pratyantar Dashaa Lord: the Dashaa Lord of the higher level is to be seen as Lagna for the subsequent sub-period)

9. Position of Dashaa Lord to various references: Moon, Lagna, Arudhaa Lagna, Sun, Horaa Lagna, Ghatee Lagna and (perhaps) Bhaav Lagna

Bhaav are structured in
Kendra (1st, 4th, 7th, 10th house),
Trikon (1st, 5th, 9th house),
Dusthan (6th, 8th, 12th house),
Upachaya (3rd, 6th, 10th, 11th house) and
Maarak (2nd, 7th house).

Trikon are the houses of Lakshmee, of fortune and provide more auspicious periods.
Kendra are the houses of Vishnu, of sustaining, the backbone of our horoscope and our life and provide normally auspicious periods (but not as auspicious at the best houses, Trikon, in a chart).
Dusthaan are Shiv's domain, providing lot of problems and obstacles in our life.
Upachaya are houses of development, therefore indicating some life struggle and need for development, therefore providing problems and challenges as well.
Maarak are "houses of death" and can lead to endings.

Look, what kind of lordship a Dashaa Planet obtains: Is he Lord of a Trikon (Lakshmee) House - then it is auspicious.
Is he Lord of a Dusthaan, or Upachaya - then more difficult. (To repeat this, there are of course lot of exceptions due to very individual constellations in a chart!)

This is to be done from various references: MD/AD/PD Lord, Moon, Lagna, Arudhaa Lagna are the most important references, then Sun, Horaa Lagna, Ghatee Lagna and Bhaav/Graha Arudhaa.

For Kaal Chakra Dashaa, the first look must go to D-9 - Navaansh with its 'divisions', Bhaansh (D-27), Akshavedaansh (D-45) and Nava-Navaansh (D-81). Dwadashaansh-Navaansh (D-108) probably has some importance as well.

Special Analysis of Kaal Chakra Dashaa
Narasinh Rao's software 'JHora' provides the Nakshatra names of each Mahaa-, Antar-, Pratyantar Dashaa - therefore we get to know which Nakshatra and Navaansh (Nakshatra Pad) are activated.

Example of a Kaal Chakra Dashaa Cycle:
Kaal Chakra Dashaa (Moon, Savya group, Paramaayush = 85 years):
Mahaa Dashaa: Le (Chitraa 1) MD: 2036-09-16 (6:12:29) - 2041-09-16 (12:57:46)
Antar-Dashaa in this MD: Scorpio (Maghaa 1) AD: 2036-09-16 (6:12:29) - 2037-01-19 (17:14:20)
(1st) Pratyantar Dashaa in this AD: Sagittarius (Jyeshthaa 4): 2036-09-16 (6:12:29) - 2036-10-01 (5:11:47)

Mahaa Dashaa activates Chitraa Nakshatra, First Pad/Navaansh. Attributes and significations of this Nakshatra and sign of Pad/Navaansh are significant, the next look must go to the Raashi/Bhaav where this Nakshatra/Navaansh is posited and all interpretations steps given above are to be done now.

Same applies for the sub-periods of the main planetary period:
Antar-Dashaa activates Maghaa Nakshatra, 1st Pad/Navaansh;
Pratyantar Dashaa activates Jyesthaa Nakshatra, 4th Pad/Navaansh.

Deh and Jeev
'In the Savya Chakra the first Ansh is called Deha and the last Ansh is called Jeev. The opposite is the case in the Apsavya Chakra.' (BPHS). This means the last Dashaa period in KCD is called 'Jeev' (life) in Savya cycle and 'Deha' (body) in Apasavya cycle.

Explanation:
Deha means 'body' and Jeev means life or spirit. The Raashi becoming Deha is closely related to our body and obtains therefore Lagna qualities, the Raashi becoming Jeev is related to our mind and obtains therefore Moon qualities.

Sub-periods (Antar-Dashaa, Pratyantar Dashaa, Sooksm Dashaa) and transits of Benefics provide positive influences, sub-periods and transits of Malefics are generally bad influences.

Quoting PVR Narasinh Rao (Astrology - an integrated approach): "Deh Raashi shows body and Jeev Raashi shows the spirit. Benefics and Malefics transiting in them affect them positively and negatively (respectively) . If Jupiter, Mercury and Venus are transiting in one's Jeev Raashi, one may exhibit a positive spirit and be cheerful. If Mars, Sun, Saturn and Raahu are transiting in one's Jeev Raashi, one may be without any enthusiasm. If Mars, Sun, Saturn and Raahu are transiting in one's Deh Raashi, one may face accidents or death."

Description of Effects of Influences to Deha, Jeev and in General:

[BPHS, Ch. 46]
120-122. According to the above-mentioned Kaal Chakra, the person, born in the Ansh of the various Raashi, will be, as under.
Mesh Ansh - brave and a thief; Vrishabh Raashi - wealthy; Mithun Raashi - learned; Kark Raashi - king; Sinh Raashi - respected by king; Kanyaa Raashi - learned; Tulaa Raashi - minister or adviser;  Dhanu Raashi - sinful; Kumbh Raashi - businessman, and Meen Raashi - wealthy.

123-128. If the Deha, or Jeev Raashi are Yuti with Soorya, Mangal, Shani, or Raahu, the native will die. Worse results may be expected, if the Deha and Jeeva Raashi are Yuti with two, or all of them. If there is a Malefic in Deh Raashi, the native suffers ill health; a malefic in a Jeev Raashi will make the native very timid. If the Deha and/or Jeev Raashi are Yuti with two Malefics, there will be distress and diseases. Three Malefics in the Deha and/or Jeev Raashi will cause premature death. Four Malefics in the Deha and Jeev Raashi will cause definite death. If both the Deha and Jeev Raashi are occupied by Malefics, there will be fear from king and thieves and death of the native. If Soorya is in the Deha, or Jeev Raashi, there will be danger from fire. If Chandra is in the Deha, or Jeev Raashi will cause danger from water. If Mangal is in the Deh or Jeev Raashi there is fear from weapons. If Budh is ion Deha or Jeev Raashi, there is fear from windy troubles. If Shani is in Deha or Jheev Raashi, there is fear from Gulma (a disease). If there are Rahu and Ketu in Deh or Jeev Raashi, there is fear from poison. If the Deha, or Jeev Raashi are occupied by Budh, Guru and Shukra, the native will be wealthy, will enjoy all kinds of comforts and will have good health. Mixed results may be expected, if the Deha and Jeev Raashi are occupied by both Benefics and Malefics.

129-130. In the Dashaa of the Raashi, owned by Malefics, the body and soul will be in distress. The effects will be favorable in the Dashaa of the Raashi, owned by Benefics. If a Malefic Raashi is occupied by a Benefic Graha, or, if a Benefic Rashi is occupied by a Malefic Graha, the effects will be of a mixed nature.

Gati (movements)
We have seen in the Mahaa Dashaa paragraph the irregular movements of Navaansh Signs. These movements have their specific meaning and are of course not due to mere coincidence.

The three main Gati are:
(1) Mandooki Gati (frog's leap): Movement of one Raashi by jumping over one Raashi
Example 1 - Movement from Virgo to Cancer: natal Moon in Ashwinee (etc.), 2nd Pad: Deha Capricorn, Jeev Gemini,
Dashaa Sequence: Lords of Capricorn (Deha), Aquarius, Pisces, Scorpio, Libra, *Virgo, Cancer*, Leo, Gemini (Jeev)
Example 2 - Movement from Leo to Gemini: natal Moon in Bharanee etc., 1st Pad: Deha Scorpio, Jeev Pisces
Dashaa Sequence: Lords of Scorpio (Deha), Libra, Virgo, Cancer, *Leo, Gemini*, Taurus, Aries, Pisces (Jeev)

[BPHS, Ch. 46]
'101-102. The effects of the Dashaa of the Raashi with Mandookee Gati in the Savya Chakra are distress to friends, relations, parents and elders and there is likely to be cause for trouble from poison, weapons, thieves and enemies. In the Mandookee Dasha of the Gati of a Raashi from Sinh to Mithun there is the likelihood of the death of the mother, or self, trouble from Government and possibility of brain fever.

106-108. In the Dashaa of the Raashi with the Mandooki Gati in the Apasavya Chakra the effects will be distress to wife and conditions, loss of children, possibility of feverish conditions and loss of position.

In both above mentioned examples these results are to be expected in Cancer and Gemini period.

(2) Markatee Ghati (monkey's leap): Backward movement to the previous Raashi
Example - Movement from Leo to Cancer: Natal Moon in Rohinee etc., 3rd Pad: Deha Aquarius, Jeev Virgo
Dashaa Sequence: Lords of Virgo (Jeev), *Leo, Cancer*, Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius (Deha)

[BPHS, Ch. 46]
'103. The effects of the Dashaa of Raashi with Markatee Gati in the Savya Chakra are loss of wealth, agricultural products and animals, death of father, or an elderly close relation and feeling of lethargy.

In the Dasha of the Raashi with the Markatee Gati there may be danger from watery places, loss of position, distress from father, punishment from Government and wandering in the forests; with the Sinhaavalokan there may be destruction of the dwelling and death of father etc.'

In above mentioned example these results are to be expected in Cancer period.

(3) Sinhaavalokan Gati (lion's leap): Movement of a Raashi to the 5th and 9th Raashi
Example 1 - Movement from Pisces to Scorpio: Natal Moon in Bharanee etc., 3rd Pad: Deha Libra, Jeev Virgo
Dashaa Sequence: Lords of Libra (Deha), Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, *Pisces, Scorpio*, Libra, Virgo (Jeev)
Example 2 - Movement from Sagittarius to Pisces: Natal Moon in Bharanee etc., 2nd Pad: Deha Aquarius, Jeev Virgo
Dashaa Sequence: Lords of Aquarius (Deha), Capricorn, *Sagittarius, Aries*, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo (Jeev)

[BPHS, Ch. 46]
'104-105. The effects of the Dashaa of the Raashi with Sinhaavalokan Gati in the Savya Chakra are possibility of injury from animals, loss of amity with friends, distress to near relations, drowning in a well, fall from animals, possibility of harm from poison, weapons and diseases and destruction of residential dwelling.

In both above mentioned examples these results are to be expected in Scorpio and Pisces period.

Description of the Effects of Gati (movements):
[BPHS, Ch. 46]
109-111. If the movement is from Meen to Vrishchik, the native may suffer from fever; if from Kanyaa to Kark, there may be loss of brothers and kinsmen; if from Sinh to Mithun, there may be ill health of the wife; if from Sinh to Kark, the native may die; if from Dhanu to Mesh, there may be death of uncles and similar relations. If the Raashi is Yuti with a malefic, adverse conditions may be expected in the Dashaa of the Raashi. Favorable effects will be felt in its Dashaa, if the Rashi is Yuti with a Benefic.

112-113. O Brahmin! In the Kaal Chakra Dashaa favorable and unfavorable effects may be predicted, after taking into account the directions of the Raashi and Graha.

114-119. If the movement is from Kanyaa to Kark, good results are realized in places, located in the East and at that time journeys to the places in the North prove fruitful. Unfavorable effects will be felt in places, located in the West and the South. It will be advisable not to undertake journeys in those directions in the Dashaa of these Raashi. If the movement is from Sinh to Mithun, no journey should be undertaken to places, located in the East. However, the journeys to the South-West will prove fruitful in the Dasha of those Raashi. If the movement is from Kark to Sinh, journeys during that period to the South will prove unfavorable and result in loss and the native has to return from the South to the West. If the movement is from Meen to Vrishchik, there will distress, if the native goes to the North. The same would happen, if the movement is from Dhanu to Makar. There may be ill health, imprisonment, or death, if the movement is from Dhanu to Mesh. There may be gains, comforts and property and marriage, if the movement is from Dhanu to Vrishchik. It will not be advisable to undertake journeys to the West during the related period, if the movement is from Sinh to Kark. Favorable results should be predicted, if the Raashi are Yuti with Benefics and adverse, if the Raashi are Yuti with Malefics.

Addition:
P.V.R. Rao explains this leaps shortly in his book 'Vedic Astrology: An Integrated Approach':
Lion's Leap - [Savya Nakshatra] Fear of animals, loss of friends, distress to near relations, fall in dungeons, danger from poison and weapons, fall from a vehicle, fever, destruction of house
[Apasavya Nakshatra] Death of father or elders, loss of position
Monkey's Leap - [Savya Nakshatra] Loss of wealth, agriculture and animals, death of father or elders
[Apasavya Nakshatra] Danger from water, distress to father, loss of position, anger of rulers, wandering in the forests
Frog's Leap - [Savya Nakshatra] Distress to relatives, elders and father, trouble from poison, weapons, enemies, thieves. In Le-to-Ge leap, death of mother or, death of native, trouble from rulers and diseases are possible.
[Apasavya Nakshatra] Distress to wife, loss of children, fever, sickness and loss of position.

In addition, Paraashar listed the directions to prefer and the directions avoid, while traveling and relocating, during different leaps.
- In the leap from Virgo to Cancer, East will give great results. One can take up an auspicious journey in the Northern direction.
- In the leap from Leo to Gemini, east should be avoided. A journey to the southwest will be fruitful.
- In the leap from Cancer to Leo, a move in the southern direction results in losses. West is favorable.
- In the leap from Pisces to Scorpio and in the normal movement from Sagittarius to Capricorn, there will be troubles in the Northern direction.
- In the leap from Sagittarius to Aries, journeys should be avoided, as they may result in sickness, imprisonment or death.
- In the normal movement from Sagittarius to Scorpio, journeys will bring comforts, wealth and sexual pleasures.
- In the leap from Leo to Cancer, western direction should be avoided.

Dashaa of a sign just after the above 3 jumps usually results in important often bad) changes in life.'

Chakra Dashaa

Chakra Dasa is described in BPHS, Ch. 46, Sl. 50-51. It is a very easy to calculate Dashaa (at least the Mahaa Dashaa of it):

1. If the birth is at night, the Dashaa will commence from Lagna Rashi.
2. If the birth is during the day, the Dashaa will start from the Raashi, in which the Lord of Lagna is placed.
3. If the birth is during Sandhyaa, the Dashaa will begin from the Raashi of the second Bhaav.

The Dashaa of each Raashi is 10 years. As it is the Dashaa system of the 12 Raashi in the Zodiac, it has been named, as Chakra Dashaa.

Sandhyaa is the time span when Sun is ascending (we can track this verifying if Sun is posited in the first Bhaav in Chalit Chakra) or descending (Sun in 7th Bhaav in Chalit Chakra). The time span of Sandhyaa is 5 Ghatikaa or two hours.

This Dashaa isn't included in any software, nevertheless Paraashar mentions in at a very early chapter in BPHS and therefore we can assume that it is a very fundamental and important Dashaa - in fact he rejects all other Rashi Dasa systems ('not appropriate' ) except Varnada, Niraayan Shool and Chakra Dashaa (this includes most known and used Chara Dashaa as well!). He really denotes Chakra Dashaa as the Dashaa system of the 12 Raashi in the Zodiac'! (Varnad and Niraayan Shool Dashaa are Aayur-Dashaa indicating longevity, death or at least severe problems.)

Each Raashi period is of 10 years leads to a total sum of 120 years, the maximum life span of human beings in Kali Yug, like in Vinshottaree Dashaa.

Lagna is related to night births, Lagna Lord to day births. This is logical because planets are carrying activities with regard to the Raashi/Bhaav they are lording, *they* are the active energies and principles. Sandhyaa is a time of transition and transformation: The Sun is wandering from day into night (from the upper half - the bright half of the day above the Ascendant - into the lower half - the dark half of the day below the ascendant). Starting Mahaa Dashaa for natives born during Sandhyaa time are started from 2nd Bhaav/Lagna.

Note: This principle could be referred to two conditional Dashaa as well, Shodashottaree Dashaa and Shat Trinsh Sama Dashaa. I do not use them - even if applicable - when the native is born during Sandhyaa.

Interpretation: Due to Parashara's highest estimation of Chakra Dashaa it must be a Phalit Dashaa, a Dashaa suitable and applicable for all themes and topics.
