Jaimini Astrology is another major branch of Parashara astrology which was lost for 3000 years and was revived in the 20th century by the efforts of gurus like K.N. Rao and P.S. Sastri. Jaimini astrology.
When looking at a horoscope and analysing the aspects of Parashara, only 80% of the results are encountered. Hence, it is recommended and advisable to use Jaimini aspects including chara dasha also in order to arrive at the results and confirm events in life.
One important fact to remember is that planets really become active in Jaimini when their sign based dasha becomes active, but in any chara dasha they will give their results based on how far they are from the sign dasha.
In Jaimini astrology signs aspect other signs unlike parashara astrology where planets have aspects. In other words, planets do not have aspects in Jaimini astrology.
Further, the signs have been classified under 3 heads : cardinal signs, fixed signs, and mutable or common signs.
Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricon.
Mutable sings are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
As discussed above, in Jaimini astrology, it is the signs that have aspects and not planets. The way that signs aspects other signs are :
1. Cardinal signs only aspect the fixed signs, other than the one sitting next to it. It can be seen as under :
2. Fixed signs only aspect the cardinal signs, other than the one sitting next to it. It can be seen as under :
3. Mutable signs only aspect each other as under:
Note : It is clear that in Jaimini Astrology, signs aspects each other. But if a planet is sitting in a certain sign, that planet, too, will aspect all the houses that the sign is looking towards. In such a method a planet will have multiple aspects, combining Prashara and Jaimini together.
For instance: If Saturn has 3 aspects in Prashara then in Jaimini it may have additional 3. This is why in one single mahadasha, Saturn can put delay on many things but no matter what, there will always be some "Chara dasha" running simultaneously with Vimshotri dasha. If Mahadasha of Saturn is running while the chara dasha of the sign where Saturn is placed that's when Saturn will began to aspect all the other respective houses.
