Bhava Karakas: Planets as House Significators
Speaker: Richard Fidler / United Kingdom
“Western and Vedic astrology use the houses of the horoscope in many essentially identical ways. In both systems the significations of a given house will be influenced by any planet or planets occupying that house, and in both systems the lord of a house is also an important consideration.. Jyotish adds a further notable element to the analysis of the state or condition of a house: it’s ‘karaka/s’ or significator/s.
It’s useful simply to contemplate these associations, since they illuminate the attributes and qualities of both individual houses and individual planets. However, applying this principle requires a way of thinking about the relationship between planets and houses which is not generally familiar. We are often applying thus principle accidentally or intuitively, rather than systematically.”
