Hi Ernst and all,
If I understand correctly, you mix both tropical and sidereal zodiac in astrology. The tropical zodiac applies to the lord and the planets, the shadbala and the planets dignity, but what about nakchatran, dashas, ashtakvargas? I have thought about these question before but they came up again when I was watching videos about Lajjitaadi Avastas and when you Ernst, talked about Shadbala.
Thanks for a great course (sorry if i chose the wrong topic)
I do not use sidereal zodiac at all. I use tropical calculations for all matters dealing with the zodiac. I currently use sidereal calculations for nakshatras, however, even that may not be correct, more research needs to be done on that.
In my opinion sidereal zodiac signs are a complete mistake, a manufacturing that resulted from lack of astronomical knowledge. And while yes, several cultures studied the stars themselves, these are not the zodiac signs. So yes, there is a huge difference if you use tropical or sidereal rectification. THe difference in my opinion being that the one done in sidereal wont be correct.
Dasas are another matter, they are based on the nakshatras, just how to calculate nakshatras is a more complex problem due to the numerous ayanamsas that have been developed over the centuries.
