Interpreting Pada of the Lagna
Hi Ernst and all,
I am listening to Jaimini Pada 1 & 2 Audio #3. You explain that the Karaka is the beginning and the Pada is the end (the foot). The Pada is important because that is the end of you what you will be doing. I would like some help with interpreting the Pada of the Lagna with no planets and no rasi aspect. I am looking at a chart with Cancer Lagna with Rahu in it, and Moon is in Leo. So the Pada for this Cancer Lagna is Virgo. There are no planets in Virgo and Virgo is being aspected by Sagi, Pisces and Gemini with no planets in them. The lord of Virgo, retrograde Mercury is in the 7th house with Ketu, exalted Mars and Sun. The Atmakaraka is Mars.
So how do interpret the Pada of the Lagna when there are no planets and no Rasi aspect? Do you then have to look at the Pada's lord Mercury to see the condition of Mercury to interpret the Pada of this chart? Thx!
its common for no planets to be in teh pada. You read the pada to find out about the person just as you do the svamsa, so all those svamsa results apply to the pada as well.
Its only last lifetime on the physical plane if a person achieves liberation and even then they may reincarnate to help us stumbling blocks along. There is no last lifetime that is not liberation.
Can anyone tell me the name of the audio course in which Ernst discusses the Svamsha in each sign?
