Applications/ Use of Shashtiamsa:

  • Knowledge of states of various planets/Grahas in Shashtiamsa gives an indication for the current life including Karmic intent for payback this life time etc.
    • For ex: Ghora or Kula Naasa are negative states of grahas and if the lagna or any planet in these states may manifest their respective avasthas in the current life.
    • It represents the sixtieth division and hence the time has to be accurate else the chart and the Amsas will not be valid
    • Also, shashtiamsas can indicate if a retrograde/ Vakri planet will manifest itself in the current avatar based in malefic or benefic influences.
    • Can get an idea of the previous lives and any indications (positive or negative) from past lives including type of death, human being etc.
