5 Bhaav-Kaarak

The main objective of astrology is to tell the native about his nature, future events, warning about any calamities and suggesting remedies if possible. This is done by drawing a chart. It can tell not only about him but also about his whole family too. Since it has only 12 distinctive divisions and 9 planets, the astrologer has to manage with this information only. These 12 Houses represent everything, how and what, let us see --

Always remember possibility and necessity of Bhavat Bhavam principle, counting houses from houses. And apply Argalaa scheme - do not isolate a single Bhaav. Effects are depending on the 2nd, 4th, 5th and 11th Bhaav from a particular Bhaav - these effects can be destroyed or counter parted by the 12th, 10th, 9th and 3rd Bhaav from that Bhaav.
