Dasa System in Vedic Astrology – Part 2 – Transition Periods Between Dasas
Transition Periods Between Dasas
When these dasas change, major changes in energy occur. That’s why people seem to change overnight, the dasa are the ones who change. To prepare for these radical changes, the previous bhukti period is always a preparation time, whose energy is similar to the next dasa period. Observed:
The last Bhukti of Ketu Dasa is Ketu / Mercury. Mercury Bhukti prepares the mundane mind for the approaching dasa of Venus, as Mercury is the builder and the planet that wants to tangibly manifest a mundane life, helps unite the otherworldly Ketu with the mundane Venus.
The last Bhukti of venus dasa it is Venus/Ketu. Ketu Bhukti prepares the mind for the purgative nature of Sun dasa. After 20 years of accumulation on Venus dasa, the last 14 months Ketu begins to take away things we no longer need.
The last Bhukti of sol dasa is Sun/Venus. Venus Bhukti prepares the mind for the Moon Maha dasa, as the Moon is where we will seek worldly connection and happiness through family and public, and the Sol dasa is where we may have been secluded or interested in more soul (and unique) activities.
The last Bhukti of dasa moon It’s Moon/Sun. Sun Bhukti helps to prepare the mind for the upcoming Mars dasa, as the independent nature of the Sun is similar to that of Mars. Mars is the time when we will find our worldly strength and courage; Sun Bhukti begins that fiery transformation in the mind.
The last Bhukti of march dasa it’s Mars/Moon. Moon Bhukti prepares the material mind for the arrival of Rahu dasa and attaches him to the world. The Moon is the archetype of the Soul’s descent into form, Rahu is the subconscious attachment to materiality and his ability to eclipse the mind (the Moon), so the Moon is useful here.
The last Bhukti of Rahu Dasa is Rahu/Mars. Mars Bhukti prepares the inspired and graceful mind for Jupiter with his courage and discipline. The end of Rahu’s illusions is spent with the general of God’s army clearing a path through courage, clarity and innocence of mind so that Jupiter has the space to teach us his higher lessons.
The last Bhukti of dasa jupiter it is Jupiter/Rahu. Rahu Bhukti prepares the practical and realistic mind for Saturn by re-clinging to stress and worldly concerns. Jupiter’s optimism must give way to Saturn’s realism. Rahu represents our worldly attachments and subconsciously brings Saturn stress.
The last Bhukti of saturn dasa it is Saturn/Jupiter. Jupiter Bhukti prepares the mind for Mercury dasa through increased optimism and hope. This renewed optimism clears a path for Mercury through which it can take advantage to develop our skills, experiment and play. The Mercurial game is the way we learn about the world.
The last Bhukti or Mercury dasa is Mercury/Saturn. Saturn Bhukti prepares for the arrival of Ketu dasa by focusing and contracting the energy of Mercury. Much has been built and discovered in the 17 years of Mercury dasa, we must learn to concentrate on Ketu, Saturn teaches us to concentrate.
Then start over.
The Moon in the Dasa Scheme.
The beginning of the first planetary dasa cycle is counted from the location of the Moon at the time of birth. the lord of the Nakshatra (corresponding star in the sign of the Moon) will determine the first period of dasa. The percentage of the amount of distance traveled by the Moon through that Nakshatra is deducted from the balance of the average dasa length to determine the length of the first dasa. Example: If the Moon had traveled ¼ through the Bharani Nakshatra, ruled by Venus, then ¼ of the length of Venus dasa would be deducted from its mean length of 20 years. Thus, the first dasa would be Venus for 16 years.
Tea vimshottari dasa it is shown from the Moon because it is from the Moon that everything grows, first in our consciousness and then in the world. The Moon is consciousness; it is the mind that has been with us since time immemorial. It is where our deep mental impressions (called samsaras) reside. When a planetary dasa is executed, we first get the samsaras of that planet, based on our past karma with it, and then we act on those samsaras, creating new karma. If we have misused the energy of that planet in past lives or in this one, we get those difficult samsaras when the dasa runs, thus attracting the experiences that we must to experience our mistakes and learn from them. If we have used that planet well, we also get those samsaras.
It is important to note that evaluating dasa periods in a general way can be risky. There are as many possibilities with dasas as there are charts. Venus, for example, is a top-tier benefic, but as a lord of Dusthana or debilitated, her periods can seem like hell. This is due to the aforementioned. A weakened planet will show the difficult karma associated with it. In that case, the topics listed below will be the areas of loss and suffering experienced. As an example, if Venus is damaged, we will especially feel pain in relationships, wealth, happiness, etc., when her dasa runs away, because those are the things she rules. Planets have an innate quality and energy and when their period runs out we will feel that energy for better or worse. When we refer to these dasa periods we also refer to their sub-periods
