Hi there, I'm new to this forum. Just started learning the Jaimini Basics, and kind of rushed all the way through to the focal bhavas. Will go back later to relearn, just seemed to understand the focal bhavas better. As an example, I have Lagna Lord in the 5th (in an enemy sign) and Atmakaraka (Saturn) in the 5th as well (in it's own sign). Found the meaning behind those placements but I'm confused as to what houses aspect the AK and the Lagna lord and vice versa. How do I know which houses get aspected to know a person's path and/or focus in life?
As Angela mentioned, Jaimini is about rasi aspects so you need to learn those. It's actually quite simple and easy to pick up. Jyotish BB is a must indeed and, if you want to focus on Jaimini, I would also strongly recommend the Jaimini audio courses, the Jaimini intro/basics are explained there and it's full of super useful info and techniques that you can apply right away.
