Arudhapada and Upapada

              Arudhapada and Upapada

Jaimini has mentioned with the Arudha Pada System in Vedic Astro world. Though Sage Parasara has originally seeded in B.P.H.S later on Maharshi Jaimini dig deep and located many pearls out of his wisdom and intuition leading to invent the system known as by the name of Jaimini astrology rather than Parasara.

The Arudha Pada system is a based on degrees of Planets , has Karakas . While Vargas of signs, mathematical calculations are not considered. Only the natal chart is enough in Jaimini system . The predictions promised by Lagna Arudha, Bhava Arudha and Graha Arudha take place during the currency of periods of those planets in their Dasha Antar Dasha.

Perception Do Matters !!

Arudha Lagna is the reflection of the self (how others perceive it) same goes with other bhava(house) too Arudha of a house represents the Maya (reflection or illusion) connected to it. Arudha of the houses will represent others illusions about that house or karaka related. 
Arudha of the planets ,on the other side will represent your illusions about others like from Moon and Sun will show about them.

Calculation Of Pada :

The Pada of the ascendant will correspond to the sign arrived at by counting as many no. of signs from the ascendant lord as it ahead from the ascendant. In SameWay Padas for other houses be known through their lords. 

Special Exceptions:-

• If the lord of a bhava is in the 4th from the bhava, no counting is required. The house occupied from the bhava by the lord itself is the Arudha (i.e. 4th from the bhava). 
• When a planet falls in the same house, the 10th in question there from be treated as its Pada. 
• When the 7th becomes the Pada of a house, the 4th from the original (i.e. the 10th House from 7th) be treated as its Pada.

The same house as the 7th from it does not become its Pada. When the Pada falls in the same house, the 10th then exception should be followed

Similarly when the 7th becomes the Pada of a house, the 4th from the original house (i.e. in the lOth from the 7th house) be treated as its Pada. If the ruler of a bhava be in the 4th from the bhava, then the very house occupied be noted as its Pada.

Arudha lagna and Wealth (11th From Arudha) :

  • If the 11th from Lagna Pada is occupied or aspected by a  planet, the native will be happy and rich, wealth will come through Virtuous means if a benefic is related . 
  • A malefic will confer wealth through questionable means. If the planet in 11th house ( or to the 11th from Lagna Pada) be in exaltation/ in own sign there will be plenty of gain.
  •  If all the planets aspect the 11 house from Lagna Pada, the native born surely becomes a king or equal to a king.
But the condition to be satisfied is if the 12th from Lagna Pada is unaspected, as the 11th from Lagna Pada is being aspected by a planet then the gain will be uninterrupted. 

The Amount of gains will correspond to the number of planets in or aspecting the 11th from Lagna Pada. If there is Argala for the said 11th, there will be more gains while a benefic Argala will bring still more gains. If the said benefic causing Argala be in his exaltation, the gains will be still higher. If the said 11th is aspected by a benefic from the ascendant, the 9th etc. gains will increase in the ascending order. In all these cases, the 12th from Pada be simultaneously free from malefic association, as 12th simply implies to loss . Virodha argala will create obstruction in acquiring wealth.

Financial Losses (12th From Arudha) :-

  • If the 12th from Lagna Pada is aspected by or conjunct with both benefic and malefics, there will be abundant earnings but plenty of expenses, benefic will cause through fair means, malefics through unfair means and mixed planets through both fair and unfair means.
  • If the 12th from Lagna Pada is conjunct the Sun, Venus and Rahu, there will be loss of wealth through the King. The Moon aspecting (the said trio in the said house) will specifically cause more such losses.

  • If Jupiter· is in the 12th from Lagna Pada, aspected by other planets, the expenses will be through taxes and on one's own
  • If Saturn is in the 12th from Lagna Pada along with Mars and is aspected by other planets, the expenses will be through one's co-borns

Note strength of the planet need to be just here its mandatory to have planet in exaltation or   Mooltrikona and forming Subhargala(benefic argala) without Virodhaargla(obstruction)  formation.

Nature and Circumstance of Death 3rd from Arudha:
  •  3rd sign from AL shows place of death. The planets in it or aspecting it by Rasi aspect show the cause of death. Arudha Lagna represents the body. The 3rd from it is the 8th from the 8th, thus showing the end of life or circumstance of death 
  • Look at the 3rd and 8th from AL as well. Usually the 3rd will determine death, but if the 8th is stronger then 8th one. 
  • Benefics like Venus and Jupiter shows native was already knowing the death period has came.
For Example, many times question comes in mind what condition/combination in chart is killing people with Covid19 Pandemic generally noted them with  Moon , Jupiter in the 3rd from AL. This is a sure combination for death due to Tuberculosis and Pneumonia. Moon points to pulmonary diseases, lungs, chest Complaints while and Jupiter throat choking. Sun can shows due to government or the authority Misleaded .

  • Only Benefics or exalted benefic in 3rd as well 6th Shows native is very Spiritual
  • 3rd and 6th house are the ParaKarma houses So Malefics here helps native to be strong enough to fight while benefic will make them passive.
8th from Arudha Pada 
  • Karka of 8th is Saturn Shows Health and Longevity
  • Benefic will Shows Positive Perception of Health 
  • Sattvic(Sun Jupiter ) and Rajasic(Mercury Venus) planets will make one be perceived as healthy, while tamasic (Sat, Mars Rahu and Ketu) will let everyone know your bad health issues. 
  • The only Moon being benefics still  won’t give good results as it is the karaka of the Arudha Lagna, to be placed 8th from it will not have good effect for the overall Arudha. also its would be MKS position of Moon will shows native has mental illness . 

Relation between Dara Pada(A7) and Arudha Pada (AL) in Match Making:

  • The A7 must be well placed from Asc and Arudha Lagna. A7 must not be in dusthana or conjoining malefic in Synastry

Upapada Lagna

Upapada means Pada of 12th house is also called Gauna Pada. 12th  house represent  marriage, spiritual inclination, and direction of life path. 12th house is the house of sacrifice and without any kind of sacrifice marriage wont happen. Bride leaves her Home and Groom shares all his belongings. So Upapada (UL) represents the nature of one’s giving.  12th house also represent giving and sharing.

Upapada is the 12th house’s reflection and manifests it. A person may get married or renunciate, it all depends on 12th house, so its Pada will tells further qualities. UpaPada is helpful in determining qualities of the Spouse ,relationship and its duration, Progeny.

Affliction to Upapada, also means trouble to get married or troubled relationships, fights, divorce, separation or cheating. We get a complete idea of a person’s marriage or relationship through Upapada.

If the Arudhal Lagna(AL) and Upapada Lagna(UL) are in 2-12 Relation, there can be lack of understanding between the couple. They can try to ignore each other. If the Arudha Lagna and Upapada Lagna is in 6-8 position from each other then also trouble is predicted. Kendra and Trine makes life easier. If Arudha Lagna and Upapada Lagna is conjunct, this is a Indication of Love marriage and Good relationship. It also indicates good understanding and compatibility.
  • UpaPada is conjunct or aspected by a benefic planet/benefic sign, one will obtain. full happiness from progeny and spouse. 
  •  UpaPada be in a malefic sign or is aspected by or is conjunct a malefic, one will become an ascetic and go without a wife. 
  • If  there be a benefic aspect (on UpaPada or the related malefic) or conjunction, these will help native in positive way.
 2nd from Upapada:-
  • If the UpaPada (or 2nd ) has a malefic planet or its ruler be a malefic planet, the person renounces his house or loses his wife.
  • The Second House from UL is very important for the Longevity of the Marriage as its 8th to the 7th house.
  • If there is Malefic Influence in UL2, there is possibility of breaking the marriage or that Karaka will bring obstacle in marriage .
  • If the UpaPada or the 2nd from it has a planet is in debilitation, the person loses his wife. 
  • If the UpaPada or the 2nd from it has a planet in exaltation, the person has many wives. 
  • If the Upa Pada or the 2nd from it be the third Rashi Mithuna(gemini) may have two spouse as gemini is the sign of mating ,dating ,duality.
  • Benefic like Jupiter placed in the 2nd from UL can  break as well if its not in god dignity. But Can Give Wealthy Spouse

Planets Like Mars, Rahu is most detrimental in the 2nd House/7th house of Upapada Lagna. It can give break or Separation in Marriage.

Rahu and Saturn the man abandons his wife on account of public scandal or loses her. 

Saturn Moon Combo can also make Seperation if dasha antar dasha comes .

8th from Upapada(Loss or other)

Upapada Lagna UL in Match Making

The matching of Upapada is very crucial as this shows, how the images of the partners are related to each other and hence has a strong say on the marital affairs and harmony. 
𝑳𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒊𝒔 𝒎𝒆,  𝒍𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒊𝒔 𝒚𝒐𝒖.
𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝒔𝒆𝒆, 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒏 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒔𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒆 𝑰 𝒔𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒆 𝒕𝒐𝒐.  𝑾𝒉𝒆𝒏 𝒚𝒐𝒖’𝒓𝒆 𝒂𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒅, 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒌𝒊𝒆𝒔 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒃𝒍𝒖𝒆

  • The Natal lagna of the native should be in trine or 7th from the Upapada
  • The Upapada and AL should be placed in Kendra or Trine or 3/11 to each other.
    Otherwise, this shows a lack of harmony in the relationship.
  • The 2nd of Upapada rules the longevity of the marriage. If the 2nd house or the lord is afflicted by malefic such as nodes, then the marriage can be in serious troubles. This is also true if the lord is debilitated and aspected by malefic.

  • Both the native and the partner should have UL and Lagna compatibility for long run.
  • The remedy of all marriage troubles is to fast on the day ruled by the Upapada lord. Know as Upapada fasting.
Clue of Spouse :
  • The planets strongly connected to the UL of the native should match planets strongly connected to the partner’s lagna to show a karmic connection in the compatibility.
  •  For example, if the UL is in Leo, with a strong Sun, the partner should have a strong Sun in lagna or trines to it.
