Hi, 

 

I have not been into astrology for a while and I had a reading with Laura Bharat recently. 

Is there  a new ayanamsa I need to know of? How do I set this in my current Kala software?

Laura is experimenting with putting krittika on the vernal equinox and so using a type of tropical ayanamsa. If you want to try that, you need to set the custom ayanamsa to the persons birth day and then put 333:20 into the other box. You have to change the birthday for each chart you look at.

@stefaniefernand I had a reading from Laura as well and have been playing with the user defined / 333:20 ayanamsa on Kala. Have you experimented with it as well?

@mona Is using a different ayanamsa that's causing my vimshottari dasa to be slightly off? On different forums I see that my dasha periods are 6-8 months off even with using Kala software. I was wondering why would is generally used/

@arjstere yes, it will change your Vimshottari dasa depending on the ayanamsa you use since your first Dasa is determined by your moon’s Nakshatras lord. I believe most Vedic astrologers are using Lahiri ayanamsa and Ernst uses Dhruva Galactic center, middle of Mula (I think), and some are experiencing with the Krittika Ayanamsa (user-defined / 333:20). Personally, I use Lahiri but it seems to be a never-ending debate from what I gather 😉

@mona absolutely. The reason is that one of my close friends, who happens to be an astrologer, mentioned that the strongest possible time for me to get married based on the 9th house factors is when I am running the ME/JU/SA Maha/Antra/Prat Dasha (Ernst ayanamsa for this is ME/RA instead). Right now I am Me/Ma or Me/Mo (depends on the ayanamsa). So I am thinking now which one to follow 🙂

But one thing to note though, I feel more like ME/MA now instead of ME/MO. My ME/MA changed mid-Dec and I could feel an immediate shift in my willpower and competitive attitude. Until mid-Dec I was unmotivated and slightly depressed owning to ME/MO maybe

@mona hmm... I am not able to find that option, maybe it has defaulted.  My BD is 16/10/85; 06:24 AM; Bangalore, India. though. ME/MA change on 14/12/2020 seemed appropriate for me.

@arjstere 

When you say "am not able to find that option", are you referring to finding how to change the Ayanamsa on Kala? If this is what you mean: you go to "options", then "calculation options", "Ayanamsa" tab, you will find all the ayanamsa options.

Otherwise, the default/recommended by Ernst is Dhruva Galactic Center, middle of Mula, then "Use Dhruva Equatorial longitude for Nakshatra position" is checked (as well as the use of tropical rasis).  I checked your data and with the defaulted/recommended, it looks like Me/Ma dasa is on July 25, 2021 and, that you are now on Me/Mo as you mentioned. Not sure which option would place Me/Ma on Dec 12, 2020 indeed. Lahiri places it in April 2023... As you can see on Kala, there are a LOT of options;)

For marriage and best timing, maybe you can look at Jaimini's dasa. Am not an expert at this, I only dabbled into it but it sounded quite effective and a good way to double-check/back-up Vimshottari.

@mona Got it. I was using Astrolada to get the Dasa, not sure which Ayanamsa is being used behind the scenes, but that timeline seems to be relatable based on the current Dasha I am going through. 

Thanks for the tip on using the Jaimini technique for marriage and best timing. Super helpful

Thats the same as the krittika ayanamsa.
