Jata Graha is a planet that can help us pinpoint the cause of our creation. It can give clues to the reason why we were born. We must study this graha along with the Atma Karaka.
How to calculate the Jata Graha
- Mark the signs that are in Kendra (1, 4, 7, 10) from the Moon
- Mark the signs that are in trines (1, 5, 9) from the Arudha Lagna.
- Now find the sign that is common between steps 1 and 2.
The meaning and purpose of our life can be understood from this sign. If there is a planet in this sign it becomes the Jata Graha if not the lord of the sign becomes the Jata Graha. Study this Graha along with the Atma Karaka. This graha becomes the tiny Jyotirlinga inside the Atma Karaka
I learned this from Zoran who belongs to the tradition of Pandit Sanjay Rath.
Example – Lord Rama and Lord Krishna
Lord Rama – The Sun
Arudha Lagna is Mesha (Aries) so the trines are
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Moon is in Karka rashi (cancer) so the quadrants are
Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, Aries
The common sign is Aries and Lord Rama’s Sun is exalted in the sign of Aries. He is an incarnation of Dharma and HE established the Jyotirlinga in Rameshwaram which is situated in Mesha Rashi (Aries).
Lord Krishna – The Moon
Arudha Lagna is Kanya (Virgo) so the trines are
Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus
Moon is in Vrishabha rashi (Taurus) so the quadrants are
Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
The common sign is Taurus and Lord Krishna’s Moon is exalted in the sign of Taurus. HE established the Somnath Jyotirlinga in Vrishabha Rashi (Taurus).
The Jata Rashi will bless us with all that we need to achieve our purpose in life. In case there are blockages you should worship the Jyotirlinga connected to this sign. If the Jata Graha is in kendra (quadrants – 1, 4, 7, 10) from the Atmakaraka then it is highly auspicious as both of them will work together to help you achieve the purpose of your life. These 2 planets should not be natural enemies.
You should also study the dispositor of the Jata graha as this graha will have the power to support the Jata Graha.
In Lord Rama’s chart the dispositor of HIS Jata Graha Sun is Mars. Mars is in his 7th House which represents Lord Hanuman who is ready to give HIS own life (Mars in Marana Karaka Sthana) to fulfill the duties of Lord rama.
The best way to study this is to understand this concept and analyze your own chart mutiple times. Each time, you will uncover a secret.
