For Tastes and Food from Chart
There is an ongoing discussion on certain foods and Ras / essence/ tastes which are favored or good by the owner of the Vaidik chart. I tend to avoid public discussion due to two reasons:
Taste is seen from Lagna, 5th and 9th house. Lagna gives natural taste for food, while 5th house gives preferred taste for food. The 9th House gives the food we are trained or accustomed to eat. Most astrologers make mistake by judging the preferred food from Lagna only. For example, if your father (9th House is Muslim), you will be trained or accustomed to avoid Pork meat. Therefore, one has to see the influences in trines to see the preference of food.
The 2nd House shows the food we actually eat. We may like to eat certain food, however due to various reason (health, finance, job obligations etc), we may actually consume completely another type of food. For example if Aatma Kaarak rules the 2nd House and is afflicted, one will certainly have to change the food style because of health problems, or even poverty, depending on the placement of Aatma Kaarak planet in the chart.
If it is Mangal (Mars) and is in Maran Kaarak Sthaan, eating hot food will cause serious disorders in heart, head or colon. Normally Raahu eats fish and fish products, Ketu eats red meat and pork in particular, Mangal likes birds, such as chicken, Budh likes greens, Shani eats all kinds of meat and stale food, Soorya likes honey, bread, and wheat, Chandra likes baby food, and milk, while Shukra likes sour food such as yoghurt etc. These are the basics. There is a whole list of other food ruled by the planets.
Many people tend to confuse Ras and Tastes, which is wrong and is a long subject for discussion. Also, it is a well known fact among the students of my Guru to look for Somnaath Drekkan for health. You will find in many articles and books the methods to calculate Somnaath Drekaan.
Now, there is a very important point as how to use this chart for choosing the best food for Ojas and health. Many astrologers and followers of our tradition take simply the Lord of Somnnaath Drekkan and choose the taste, which is wrong,
Do not go by it, otherwise
you will fall sick. For example, according to my friend Somnaath Drekaan is ruled by
Venus, so according to this he should eat sour food. Due to the sour food,
he developed chronic gastritis, which was cured only after he removed the
sour Ras completely from my diet. The basic point is to focus on Panchaamrit.
These are: milk, curd, honey, sugar, clarified butter or ghee. Only choose
these food for a start if any of the following Graha rules Somnaath Drekaan
or is favorably placed in Lagna or its trines. For example, for Guru choose
Ghee (though in some exceptions butter is also allowed and good). For Shukra
choose Curd or plain Yogurt, though for Vrishabh Somnaath Drekaan Lagna, Lassee
or butter milk is preferred and better, while for Tulaa it is Yoghurt. For Kark
Lagna in this Drekkan choose water and milk, while for Sinh choose Honey.
Quality type sugar like raw cane sugar or date sugar is ruled by Guru. All other
processed sugars are ruled by Venus (it is exalted in Pisces), and Venus does not
rule sugar but LIKES sugar. That is a big difference. In case of other malefic
Lagna, see the best influence on Lagna in Somnaath Drekkan by Soorya, Guru,
Shukra and Chandra, and choose accordingly.
