PUSHKARA NAVAMSA

Pushkara Navamsa has been discussed in Vidya Madhaveeyam, Devakeralam or Chandra Kala Nadi. Since it does not find a place in works like Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra, it, it did not gain currency in the later years. Push means nourishment and when it enables the particular Navamsa, then it is called Pushkara Navamsa. The placement of planet in Pushkara Navamsa makes it extremely powerful and gives benefits like exalted planets. Even debilitated planet when placed in Pushkara Navamsa, gives beneficial results like Mars in Cancer Rasi. However, some of the contemporary Astrologers use the concept of Pushkara Navamsa. If you are using Jagannatha Hora, you can find data on Pushkara Navamsa and Pushkara Bhaga also. Even if the houses falls in it, you can find a mention in the data.

Out of the contemporary writers only late C.S. Patel has talked about Pushkara Navamsa and Pushkara Bhaga in his works. Pushkara literally means ‘’Blue Lotus’’. Not much indication is given as to how this concept is used in predictive Astrology. However, use of this in electoral Astrology and mundane Astrology is very simple. Pushkara Navamsas are ruled by benefic planets.

A Navamsa will run to 3⁰ 20’’ in a Rashi. Now let us see in which Rashi we will get Pushkara Navamsa

All the Pushkara Navamsas fall in benefic planets only between Pisces and Taurus. They have six Navamsas whereas the Pushkara Bhaga is the exact degree in the Rasi. But care should be taken in arriving at the Pushkara Bhaga because we will need the exact time of birth. 

How to use it in prediction is a big question. Jataka Parijata says a planet in Pushkara Navamsa is equivalent to planet in Vargottama. Some of the other points are 

  1. If the ascendant is in Pushkara Navamsa, then the native will be King like. As the years goes by his fortune will swell.
  2. If it is in Trikona 1st, 5th and 9th, then it will give beneficial effects during its Dasa Bhukti
  3. If all the planets are in Pushkara Navamsa, then the native may be a successful politician
  4. Generally planets in Pushkara Navamsa give beneficial results in its Dasa/Bhukti.
  5. If Moon, Mars and Jupiter are in Pushkara Navamsa, then the person becomes very successful because of his hard work
  6. When Jupiter is in Pushkara Navamsa and 10th Lord or 10th house is making a relationship with Mars, the native remains lucky throughout his life
  7. When Jupiter in Pushkara Navamsa occupying a Kendra or kona, then the native becomes very lucky.

Generally, Pushkara Navamsas are auspicious and the native may do well if planets are in it. One more factor to remember is that all the Pushkara Navamsas are formed by benefics.

There are several other factors in a horoscope to be considered to make the ultimate prediction. The planets that are not placed in Pushkara Navamsa do not have the capacity to nourish themselves, the need to be energized.
