In Hindu tradition, it is believed that the destiny of a person is prewritten. The birth chart is a proof of this and is considered as the roadmap to one’s life events – both good and bad ones. According to Vedic Astrology, the position and movements of planets in the birth chart can decide the destiny of an individual. The major planetary movement is called Dasha and the Dasha at the time of a person’s birth can have a great influence on his or her life. Mahadasha is the period in which a planet is in its strongest state and can give both auspicious and inauspicious results based on the position of the planet in a person’s birth chart.
Vimshottari Dasha is a widely accepted and easiest system to interpret the Dashas and their effects. The duration of Mahadasha is different for the 9 planets and is as follows:
Sun – 6 years, Moon – 10 years, Mars – 7 years, Rahu – 18 years, Jupiter – 16 years, Saturn – 19 years, Mercury 17 years, Ketu – 7 years and Venus – 2- years.
Sun is the planet of the soul, Moon is for the mind, Mars is for strength and courage, Mercury for with and communication, Jupiter for luck and fortune, Venus is for love and wealth, Saturn for longevity and hard work. The influence of these Dashas is based on the date, time, and place of birth of an individual.
