                                                        Om Gurubyo Namaha
                                     SAPTA SHALAKA CHAKRA
  • To identify Nakshatra Veda
  • To predict transit results of planets traversing different Nakshatra vis-à-vis Janma Nakshatra.
  • Draw seven horizontal lines from West to East and seven vertical lines from North to South as shown in the diagram below.
  • Staring from North East corner place all 28 Nakshatras including Abhijit at each consecutive ends commencing from Krittika (see diagram)

Sapta Shalaka Chakra

  • Nakshatra opposite to each other causes Nakshatra Veda. For example, Krittika causes Veda to Shravana and vice versa.
  • If the star occupied by the Sun at the time happens to be:
    • The Vedha star to the Janma Nakshatra, there will be apprehension of danger to life.
    • The Adhana Nakshatra (19th from the Janma Nakshatra), there will be fear and anxiety;
    • The  Kharmaksha (10th from the Janma Nakshatra), loss of wealth will take place.
    • If the Sun in the above position be also associated with a malefic, death alone has to be expected.
  • If any one of the three Nakshatras mentioned above be thus afflicted by association of other malefics (other than the Sun) then death may occur;
  • If with benefics, there will be no danger to life. Everything should be judged in the same manner.
  • If the 19th, 10th, 3rd, 1st, 23rd, 5th or 7th (all reckoned from the Janma Nakshatra) are afflicted by malefics during their transit, there will be danger to life. If the planet be benefic, failure in undertaking will be the only result.
  • If the three Nakshatras, namely, the 1st, the 10th and the 19th happen to coincide with the Sun’s entry into a new sign, or with the transit of any other planets from one sign to another, or with an eclipse, planetary war, or a fall of meteors or any other unexpected occurrence, there will be likelihood of death of the native or he will face some similar disaster.

    Dear Sir,

    Namaste! I have a question on the topic Saptha Shalaka. I am learning Astrology and in very initial stages of my learning.

    Sun, Venus, Mercury and Saturn are transiting Scorpio as on date (26-Nov-14).
    Since these planets transited into Scorpio in “Visakha” nakshathra, does it mean
    there is a Vedha to Dhanishtha born natives due to transit of the above planets?

    Do we always say Vedha being there based on entry of planets in the nakshathra causing vedha or does it mean these vedha causing planetary transits to the next nakshathra removes / nullifies Vedha.

    For example, right now, Sun / Mercury are in Anuradha nakshathra and Venus in Jyesta. Would we still consider Vedha being there for Dhanishta born natives or not.

    Request your guidance in this regard.

      As long as those planets are in Vishaka Nakshatra they will block all good effects of those planets if are in good places from natal Moon i.e.people born in Dhanista Nakshatra.

      Once they move out, blockage is removed and good or bad effects as the case may be will happen.

      Remember this is for Transit effects only.

    In this sapta shalaka chakra. What means janam nakshatra…sun in which nakshatra at the time of birth..or moon in which nakshatra at the time of birth .. please clarify it

    • Jyothishi August 10, 2020 at 22:00 #

      Moon’s Nakshatra at the time of birth.

      If you were a serious student of astrology, you would not have asked this question.
