Mahadasa of Planets – Vedic Astrology

Analysis of Main and Sub Periods of planets in vedic astrology Birth Chart is of as much importance as the Birth Chart itself.  This is so because the results of planetary placement in vedic astrology horoscope are conferred upon the native during the operation of main and/or sub period(s) of relevant planets.

Many times it does happen that the native is deprived of having positive results of benefic planetary placement and Raj Yogas in his vedic astrology horoscope.  This is simply because the Operating planetary period may not be having any direct or indirect relation with the planet(s) creating auspicious yoga or combination in the vedic astrology birth chart.In order to have absolute clarity on this issue of vedic astrology readings, let me site one beautiful example to help you understand it in a better way.

Vedic Astrology readings – Shri Amitabh Bachchan  Birth Chart


This is the vedic astrology horoscope of famous Indian Celebrity Shri Amitabh Bachchan. The ascendant is Aquarius and four planets namely the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus are in eighth house of the birth chart, which is not an auspicious placement of planets as per vedic astrology. Out of these four planets, Yogakarka Venus is debilitated and combust.  Mars and Mercury are also combust.   Apparent placement of these planets indicate troubles and problems in the life of Shri Amitabh Bachchan on account of professional and financial problems.

But, nothing like that seemed to have taken place in the life of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan.  The reason behind this was the operation of Jupiter and Saturn’s mahadasas during prominent years of life.

Shri Amitabh Bachchan was born on 11th October 1942 during the mahadasa/main-period of Rahu, which remained operational till Feb 1955.  As Rahu is well placed in the seventh house and not having any other influence over it; nor having any relationship with badly placed planets.  There were no significant negative results during that period.

Vedic Astrology readings for the mahadasa of Jupiter: The mahadasa/main-period of Jupiter, which is placed in sixth house of birth chart, remained operational till February 1971.  As per birth chart astrology readings, Jupiter is a malefic and non-supportive planet for Aquarius Lagna/Ascendant. During Jupiter’s MD Shri Amitabh Bachchan was struggling in his career.

Astrology readings for the mahadasa of Saturn: The MD of Saturn started from March 1971 and remained operational till February 1990. And, it is needless to mention the success and rise that Shri Amitabh Bachchan achieved in his career during this period.

As per birth chart astrology readings, the reason is simple.  Saturn as lagna lord is strongly placed in fourth house of the birth chart devoid of any malefic influence over it.  In addition to this, Saturn aspects the lagna and Ketu, which is also placed in Lagna/Ascendant. Strong and well placed Saturn, not having any relation with negative planets, was quite capable of giving the enormous rise in his career.  This MD of Saturn was also helpful in dealing with the injury which troubled him severely during the antardasa of malefic Moon in the year 1982 while he was doing the stunt in the movie, “Coolie”.

Vedic Astrology readings for mahadasa of Mercury: After Saturn’s mahadasa, the mahadasa of Mercury started from March 1990 to February 2007.  In vedic astrology horoscope of Shri Amitabh Bachchan, Mercury is combust and  rules over fifth and eighth houses.  As per the vedic astrology readings, the dasa of combust planet causes lot of problems in life; and therefore, during the mahadasa/main-period of combust Mercury, Shri Amitabh Bachchan had to face the extreme negative situations in his life.  The problems were severe during the antardasas of Venus, Sun, Moon and Mars i.e. from August 1993 to August 1999.  It was only during the antardasa/sub-period of well placed and strong Rahu (September 1999 to March 2002) that he could find some solutions for the acute problems.

Therefore, while doing the birth chart astrology readings, one has also to analyze and conclude, if the operational planetary period is supportive for the native or otherwise.  Operation of mahadasa/main-period of a planet which is not favorable in the birth chart during youth time of a native (18 – 36 years); may deny the native of the auspicious results, which are otherwise present in the birth chart.

The birth chart astrology readings can help you to take appropriate action in accordance with the operational main period in your birth chart.  The vedic astrology readings include use of Gem Therapy, specifically designed and easy to perform astrological remedies, expected future insights and personal counseling on almost all aspects of your life.  Vedic Astrology readings can work as a life savior during unfavorable situations; while during favorable situations in your life, the vedic astrology readings can safe-guard your interest for future.
