The topic of 64th navamsha is very important for any serious students of vedic astrology. It is a sensitive area in your birth chart which can trigger some bad events in your life, its lord is also known as Chhidra planet and as Khara Navamsh also. Khara was a demon in Hindu epic Ramayana and was associated with evil. This particular name of 64th navamsha shows how negative it can be. This article deals with everything about 64th navamsha.
METHOD TO CALCULATE 64TH NAVAMSHA
Since we all know how important is navamsha and planetary movements when seen through navamsha can reveal many things. As the name suggests 64th navamsha is calculate from navamsha . As per BPHS it should be calculated from both Lagana & Moon chart whereas Jataka Parijata recokns it from Moon only. For better results one should reckon it from both ascendant and Moon. One more addition can be done here, as per K.N Rao you can calculate 64th navamsha for each house and can know when negative events are going to happen with significations of that particular house.
For example if you want to calculate the 64th navamsha for ascendant than check which sign is rising in 4th from it. Suppose I have Pisces ascendant and Capricorn navamsha, then for 64th navamsha for ascendant will be 4th sign from Capricon which is ARIES. Now sign Aries will be 64th navamsha for my ascendant and its lord Mars will be called as Chiddra planet. Same way you can calculate 64th navamsha for planets like VENUS, MARS etc and when malefics transits over their 64th navamsha then the house they rule suffers and significations which they represents also suffers.
APPLICATION OF 64TH NAVAMSHA
As per classics “when 64th navamsha lord is with Satrun, Rahu , Ketu or Mars and is placed in 6th, 8th, or 12th house in the birth chart, then the person dies a unnatural death without any blood relatives on his side”.
This can be seen in chart of Indira Gandhi who was killed by her own security people with no relatives on her side.
Following rules can be applied on 64th navamsha to:
1. Transit of malefics over 64th navamsha can give severe negative events especially when a malefic is posted there already.
2.A malefic placed in 64th navamsha of any planet creates harms to signification of that planet and the house they rule. In indira gandhi horoscope, Ketu & Saturn are placed in 64th navamsha from Venus and her husband died at very young age.
3.Death becomes imminent when a planet who is by chance lord of 64th navamsha from ascendant or moon and 22nd drekkana are same planet , transits a sign which don’t have any asthvarga bindus.
Note” 22nd drekkna is also a sensitive point in horoscope which acts samee like 64th navamsha. Will talk on this in Drekkana chapter.
4.Native will have shot age when lord of navamsha occupied by Moon is inimical to its 64th navamsha.
5. Native will have medium age when lord of navamsha occupied by Moon is neutral to its 64th navamsha.
6. Native will have long age when lord of navamsha occupied by Moon is friendly to its 64th navamsha.
For example of application of 64th navamsha you can look into horoscope of great astrologer DR B.V Raman. He died on 20th December 1998. In his horoscope the 64th navamsha from ascendant is Aries which contains Saturn in it. On day of his death Saturn was in Aries sign and in Aries Navamsha.
Same way you can also check 64th navamsha for your ascendant and other planets and check when malefic are going to pass over them. Those periods will prove bad especially slow moving malefics like Saturn, Rahu and Ketu.
