Numerology in Astrology
I have a small collection of books. Since I have started learning astrology in 2012 December, I made a habit to purchase at least 3-4 books per month. This continues till now.
After going through the book a review about the book was given by me on “Amazon” [Still can be read]
At my birthday on 9th January 2016 the author wished me on Facebook and mentioned that he saw my review about his book today.
After that continued our conversation, fragments of that is presented here. For guidance of learners like me. He guided me on advancing my studies on astrology and also justified why he gave those portions in book relating to planets in houses, signs and lord of different houses in other houses. He also revealed Numerology methods to me as a hint [Will be visible from conversation] which was later on experimented by me and found to be satisfactory. It reveals very important insights into a birth chart which will be demonstrated with examples in last section of the article.
[My replies and irrelevant portions are not included, Comments made under  are my own, indented for clarifications/simplifications/translations]
Shri Rup Krishen Baqaya – I got into astrology because I had a problem in my workplace and I was not sure if I will get my next promotion, and if I get it, when?
I asked this question to thousands of practicing astrologers but none gave me correct answer even though they called themselves Jyotish [Astrology] Samrat [King] and what not [A title in India which can be purchased for few thousand rupees along with certificate and medal].
So, I started learning myself.
In the meantime I got correct answer to my problem from a computer program called Foresight Systems. [When I searched this on internet on 23rd August 2017 I found a glamorous looking website which also provides consultation. One must mind that he have referred to the computer program and not any human astrologer – Shubham] and I found that they have used in arriving at this difficult and correct prediction was Vimshottari Dasha and Gochara [Transits]
If these two things could give such a difficult prediction correct. I thought that they can give all answers. So I felt that most other things were unnecessary.
And you must have seen from my Facebook Page how successful I have been in giving all national and international predictions by just using these two things.
First you must have a very logical understanding of the basic horoscope. Next you have to collect a much literature as possible about Vimshottari Dasha. Gochara is off-course simple. But literature about Dasha is very important. No book gives very elaborate Dasha predictions, not even one tenth of what is exactly available.
Okay Shubham, Let me tell you how I make prediction. You might have heard about my first book “Analyze your date of birth” in this book I have spoken about a method of analyzing the three parameters of one’s date of birth by three different methods.
Like say my date of birth is 17 August 1946
So being born on 17 birth number is 8 and numerology tells you a lot about birth number 8. Being born in August I am Sun sign Leo by western Astrology and western astrology tells you a lot about how Leo is [I recommend using Vedic Astrology and reading effects of Sun in Leo on 17th August sun will be in Leo from Vedic perspective too] Born in 1946 by Chinese Astrology. I am born in the year of Dog and Chinese Astrology tells you a lot about personality of a Dog.
Similarly, any other date of birth.
Thus if you know just the date of birth of person such analysis will tell you a lot about person. Armed with this knowledge, if you see horoscope of a person, prediction becomes much easier. Like let us say you find Mars in 8th house of horoscope, so you will say that the person is accident prone. But not all people who are born with Mars in 8thmeet with accidents. However if you know that he is birth number 9 [Birth number is you date of birth, if more than one number then add both numbers like 11 = 1+1=2] also, chances of being involved in accident becomes much more. In fact many times, I use my knowledge of numerology to supplement the conclusions I arrive at by Vedic astrology.
Another example, somebody born on 17th means in career there could be a problem [7+1=8 Saturn’s number Karaka of Profession and difficulties in life]. Now, if you find a malefic influence on the 10th house in the horoscope also you can be sure that career will be a problem.
After you make an analysis of the date of birth in the manner indicated above you will get a broad idea about the personality of the native, his nature, the color and gems that will suit him, his financial affairs, his love life etc. The next thing we come to is the basic horoscope aimed with the knowledge you get from the date of birth it is not difficult to analyze the horoscope.
However, for analyzing the horoscope you will need to know the result of planets in signs, houses, lord of different houses in a house etc. this will help you to know the events that are possible in life of the native. Like if there will be a divorce, what disease will befall him, what kind of children he will have etc.
Remember, analyzing and understanding the basic horoscope is the most important thing. Without that no prediction is possible. Because Dasha and Gochara etc do not tell what event will happen in the life of the native? They tell only about timing of events. You must understand that unless an event is shown in the basic horoscope it will not happen, whatever the Dasha and Gochara may indicate.

Building upon guidance
This conversation stimulated my mind to synthesize both systems. Some part of synthesis is being present in this article.
Date of birth [If more than 12 subtract 12] this needs to be seen from Sun’s placement in one’s birth chart. Because Sun makes day and night by his daily movements. This will indicate internal driving force.
Month of Birth [See the number of sign sun is in from Aries] look for the same number of sign from moon’s position in birth chart. Dark and bright fortnight of Moon makes Vedic/Lunar month. This will indicate driving mental power.
Year of Birth [Divide by 12, Take the remainder: example 1996 [1996/12=166*12=1992-1996=4] look for same number of house from Jupiter. This will indicate moral values/guiding ambitions.
Total of all of them [Keep them all together. Divide by 12, Take the remainder. Example 9th January 1996 = 911996/12 = 75999*12=911988-911996=8] Look for it from Lagna as reference point. This will indicate Synchronization between Body, Mind and Soul.
Dr B. V. Raman: 8th August 1912, 19:40:00, 77E35/12N59, 5.30 East.
Date of Birth: 8th house from Sun is Lagna under aspect of Venus, Mercury and Mars. Whose lord is in 4th house with Moon who is depositor of Sun. This clearly indicates his internal driving force is himself [Self motivated person to pursue anything] He restarted The Astrological Magazine to support his family which is visible by Lagnesh being in 4th house which was shut down since long due to financial constrains which is justified by Moon being with Saturn as 6th lord. Aspect of Mercury [Astrologers] Mars [Blood Relations/enterprise] and Venus [Wife] were the people supporting him in his motivation [Lagna indicates you, it indicates what you wanted to do from your heart]
Month of Birth: 4th from Moon is 7th house with Mars, Venus and Mercury which indicates he did all this with mental support from his wife [Venus] other fellow astrologers [Mercury] and blood relations [Grandfather – Mars: This is specifically so, due to Mars being 10th lord of lineage which is represented by any elderly person of family] Due to early marriages in those times it was his wife whose support was crucial even in tough times to make what Dr. Raman was, if she was a weak lady then it was never possible.
Year of Birth: 1912/12=159*12=1908-1912=4 – 4th from Jupiter is again lagna which indicates his self values and ambitions guided him which was planet by his grandfather, his own condition [Poor conditions of family] guided and motivated him in life.
Total/Destiny Maker: 881912/12=73492*12=881904-881912=8. 8th house from Lagna is Virgo [He was an astrologer] He fulfilled his ambition by being an astrologer and starting magazine along with writing books [Lord Mercury is Karaka of them] it is with 10th lord [he was successful in that] Making Raajyoga he achieved heights. With 3rd lord he wrote books, with 5th lord his mental and observational capabilities were outstanding. 4th lord his heart was pure [Not maligned like most astrologers] 9th lord his elders guided him/supported him achieve all this.
Sai Baba: 18 May 1837, 20:24:20, 76E27/19N15, 05:30 East
Date: 18-12=6 – 6th from Sun is 11th house with Ke, Moon and exalted Saturn. Like all saints he must be inspired by bondage of human life [11th house indicates bondage which comes when wishes are fulfilled or not in both ways] with Ketu and Moon along with Saturn it indicates strong renunciation aspects over his soul. This can be termed as classical renunciation yoga.
Month: 2nd from Moon is 12th house of salvation whose lord is in 9th house which indicates his mind again was motivated with thought of salvation and Dharma for which he stands but malefic in 9th house aspected by another malefic [Rahu] indicates unorthodox in religious matters which he was in true sense. Faith in all religions.
Year: 1837/12=153*12=1836-1837=1 – Jupiter is in 8th house exalted lord is in strong Parvrajya yoga which indicates his guiding ambitions were exalted and without any deeds. Unselfish as he was. It also indicates that his discrimination [Jupiter Karaka] advised him to take path of occult [tantra] which doesn’t distinguish between human and divine.
Destiny Maker: 1851837/12=154319*12=1851828-1851837=9 – 9th house stands for Dharma which is having Mars lord of 5th and 12th that is an indicator of intellect [5th] and renunciation [12th] 9th is Dharma. He gave people intellect to progress on spiritual path by being their Guru [9th house]
Thakur Shri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa: 18 February 1836, 06:44:00, 87E44/22N53, 05:30 East
Date – 18-12=6 – 6th house from Sun is 6th house whose lord Moon is in Lagna indicates that his Avatar was to guide people to end suffering and have salvation [6th house of Shadripu] He himself was free from Shadripu and made disciples who were free from Shadripu. His renunciation of women and gold is a fine example of how weakness can be avoided. His method of Sanyasa is the most practical method of salvation and ending weakness and misery.
Month: 11th from Sun is 11th house again of bondage and freedom, his mind was guided by misery one faces due to bondage to many things. 11th lord Jupiter is in 5th house of Mantra [Naam Japa and chanting] which was his guiding force. He used to talk with Devi immersed in her. Identified with her. 5th is the house of Son/Daughter and indicates things in life which can dissolve us in itself in which we are totally submerged.
Year: 1836/12=153*12=1836: 0 is the answer which leads us to 12 [Divided by 12 remainder zero gives 12] 12th from Jupiter is 4th house of Mother, She had a dream about her birth, also Mother was her Ishta, which he worshipped loved and talked with. Mother in every form was her guiding light which overshadowed his soul/intellect and discrimination. He even saw mother in his wife.
Destiny Maker: 1821836/12=151819*12=12651*12=151812-151819=7 – 7th house is empty whereas 7th lord is in Lagna with 6th lord moon forming spiritual Amavasya Yoga [it is a dwitiya birth] it is with Mercury who is 5th lord of Mantra and 8th house of spiritual experiences.
This technique can be developed further; I have shared only a limited part of it. Sun is our soul, moon is mind whereas Jupiter is own idea of God. These three Sattwa Planets together indicate what god destined for us, what our soul lesson was and what was perceived by our mind. And in end lagna denotes what we actually did.
There can be a question. While interpretation of these charts I have taken a spiritual outlook. Why? Due to Pravrajya yoga in Case 2 and 3 and connection between Sun, Moon and Jupiter in case 1.
Jeffery Dahmer: 21 May 1960, 16:34, Milwaukee-Wisconsin
Date: 21 [2+1=3] – 3rd from Sun is 10th house [vacant] lord moon is in 6th house of weakness with Mars. Moon is vargottama whereas Mars is in Scorpio Navansha with Saturn. Strong Karmic baggage. Sun is afflicted [To know soul’s motive see the soul first] Sun is in degree conjunction with Gulika along with combusts Mercury [Mind]. His statement – He killed not out of anger or hate “But because I wanted to keep them with me”.
Month: 2nd from Moon is Venus in Martian sign Lagna and 8th lord afflicted by aspect of Rahu and a paap Madhya. AstroDatabank states “on 23rd July 1991 a 23 year old man fled from his apartment crying that Dahmer was trying to kill him. When police entered they found a freezer covered with Polaroid photos of mutilated man. Inside were two severed head; there was another in the refrigerator human skulls in the closet and a filing cabinet. A kettle holding discomposing human hands and a penis and various body parts lying around. This indicates manifestation of 8th lordship. Lagna lordship indicates works motivated by self [either for self service/self enlightment/self satisfaction]
Year: 1960/12=163*12=1956-1960=4 – 4th from Jupiter is again Moon Mars combination effects of this combination is one indulged in business of liquor. He was a heavy drunkard. His biography states “Gentle, until he was drunk” One need to see the house where yoga is formed as house being Bhava indicates the state and here being in 6th house state/mood is not happy to be one.
Fortune point: 2151960/12=179330*12=2151960-2151960=0 – 12th from lagna is vacant whose lord Mercury is in 8th house [again see Bhava] with Sun 11th lord [Attachment] being combust [Disturbed is the word used in classics for planets in combustion] with Gulika and Maandi [Most malefic manifestation]
A long series can be written on usage of Numerology in astrology. An intelligent astrologer can use it in Dasha, Transits as well as interpretation. However I will advise that all these methods [like this] are supplementary and work as an aid to prediction but not the turning point of a chart.
