What is Karma? Karma has been understood in various ways since Vedic times: The most basic as per our Vedas is a person's action or deeds in present or previous birth. These actions are believed to decide their destiny or fate in all the birth. Some people say that it is not just your physical action but also your intentions, thought process and emotions. And as we take birth our past life karmas also get ingrained into our present life. Hence to put it simply, it is our Karmas that get etched or recorded in the cells or memories.
The Planets position at the time of birth results in our karmas or nature of actions we perform in life. And as we leave one birth we carry a certain prerecorded set of karmas to the next birth. This could also be an incomplete task from previous birth. However, the soul in transit can take the next birth only when according to his karmic deeds planetary alignment takes place. And thus the soul again carries the same Karma to the next birth.

What is Karma? Karma is your ‘karm’, it is your actions, thoughts and intentions. The Hindu God of Justice Chitragupta (also known as Dharamraj) keeps complete records of every human being’s Karma during their time on Earth. Based on these records the destination of the soul is decided. A. Karma and Actions 1. Nishkama Karma / Karma yoga / the Discipline of Action : karma that is performed for the welfare of others without attachment. 2. Yoga : it is for one’s own self B. Karma and Thoughts Thoughts and actions are divided into three categories: Sattwic, Rajasic and Tamasic. Sattwic thoughts are the ones that a person should aspire towards, Rajasic and Tamasic state of being should be avoided. 1. Sattwic: Thoughts that are righteous, pure and inclined towards knowledge are called ‘Sattwic’. This state of being is attained by following ‘karma yoga’ and living without attachment. Actions done here are for the greater good and within the confines of Dharma. 2. Rajasic : thoughts that are geared towards action, the future, greed and activity are called ‘Rajasic’. It is a very ‘I’ centered state of being where the individual is primary and should always be first, desires should always be met but desires are also insatiable. 3. Tamasic: thoughts that learn towards maleficence, evil, and ill-will are called ‘Tamasic’. In Ancient Hindu texts this state of being was usually seen in ‘rakshas’ and ‘daityas’. It is a state of being where you let life happen to you, it is a life of inaction/inactivity. Types of Karma 1. Sanchita Karma: It is the sum of all our karma in previous lifetimes. 2. Praarabdha Karma: the portion of Sanchita Karma which will present itself in this lifetime. It is the agreed upon karmic debt of the lifetime you are experiencing right now. The faster you work on your karma in this lifetime the more past life debts will keep unraveling until all of Sanchita Karma is dissolved. It is very difficult to experience all past life karmas in one lifetime, therefore we keep having rebirths to burn away our Sanchita Karma. 3. Aagami Karma: It is the Karmic Map that is coming as a result of the merits and demerits of present actions of your current birth. Karma that is created by actions in the present life and will be added to your Sanchita Karma. 4. Kriyamana Karma: Daily and instant karma created in this lifetime and that we crate in our life because of our free actions. Kriyamana is the most intense form of karma, the one we see in our daily lives, where we have immediate consequences. Karma and Hindu Astrology / Vedic Astrology The first facet taught to any novice astrologer, for without karma the purpose of Vedic Astrology is naught.
Planets and Karma: Sun: It represents your father, an authority figure. If Sun is well placed you will receive respect and be treated with dignity, if it is weak or malefic your father in this birth might face problems, your relationship with the father and authority figures might be problematic. You could even get into trouble with the government. If your Sun is good it is because you treated the karakas/significations of Sun with due respect in the past life. If it is bad then there may have been issues with your father /authority figure in the past life. - Pitru Dosha - it is a strong indicator of past life misdeeds and the sufferings of your ancestors. This dosha occurs when Sun is malefic / is with a malefic / placed in a house that is malefic. Pitru Dosha can be removed only through three generations of prayers for the peace of your ancestors. It is not a curse of the ancestors, it is their bad karma troubling them in the afterlife and you were specially selected by them to pray for their relief. Moon represents your mother, your mind, your emotional resilience, how lonely you will be (Kemdrum yoga) or how you can be in touch with rich and powerful people (Gaj Kesari yoga). Depending on your past life if you ill-treated your mother your dynamic with her in this life will not be good, if there were good karmas then the relationship with her will be excellent. - Matru Dosha - like Pitru dosha remedies and prayers are done for the maternal lineage. Jupiter - Guru/teacher/knowledge/wisdom/religion/spirituality/marriage. Venus - Wife / women / art/ beauty / luxury / attraction Mars - younger brother / husband / following orders / strategies / arguments / debate / war Mercury - little children / memory / speed / wit / humor / speech / communication Saturn - elderly / masses / underprivileged people / the poor, and cast out from society Rahu and Ketu are special because they aren’t planets rather they are ‘shadow planets’. They don’t exist in our University but in ancient texts it is said that solar and lunar eclipse used to happen because of the influence of Rahu and Ketu. They play a key role in Karma and rebirth: Rahu – Rahu is the reason that you are reborn. It is the pending desires of your past lifetime that you have come back to Earth to fulfill. You are a novice in the house Rahu occupies and are learning everything from scratch. Ketu – Ketu is also called the ‘Liberator’. Ketu Dasha lasts for 7 years but in a short duration it causes massive discernment and spiritual inclination. It is somewhat similar to Mars in the sense that it is aggressive and doesn’t have time, but unlike Mars that wants to conquer Ketu has already conquered the field. Ketu wants to let go of everything as soon as possible, he leads to Moksha. Vedic Houses and Karma: We have 4 main combinations of houses. These combinations tell an astrologer in a glance where the heaviest influence of the chart will lie. These combinations are: 1. Dharma Trikona houses - 1, 5, 9. · the first house is your present · The fifth house is your future - your children · the 9th house is your past, your father, your blessings from past life This clearly shows a link between past, present and future, all three influence the present life. Your past life house is also called the house of ‘blessings’, blessings from the God’s and your ancestors. The 9th house is of prayers, the 5th house is of mantras. 2. Artha Trikona Houses – 2, 6, 10 · 2nd house: your income, bank balance, savings and investments · 6th house: your career and ability to work hard · 10th house: your name and fame in career These houses represent the material comforts you will experience in life, and your capacity to work for them. ‘It is a sin to preach spirituality to a starving person’, without fulfilling your basic needs you won’t be able to rise to the next stage of karmic development. Keep in mind that your Artha Trikona houses are able to provide your family the nourishment they need, and will be the foundation upon which you will be able to do charity work to improve your karma. Money shouldn’t always have an evil connotation. 3. Kama Trikona Houses – 3, 7, 11 · 3rd House: Courage, motivation, your desires. This is the house of the seed of your desires. It is also the house of free-will. · 7th House: Your partnership/marriage, ability to have close and committed relationships, and sexual relationships. This is the blossoming of your desires. · 11th House: The gain of your desires, or the fulfillment of your desires. Kama Trikona houses are the houses of desire and its fulfillment. Our desires are influenced by past life unfulfilled wishes, and by societal expectations of what is ‘trending’. Our desires grow with time and so do the 3rd and 11th houses. These houses are tricky and tend to wrap people into its web, stopping you from attaining moksha. If you manage to break free from the Kama Trikona houses you step into the next and final stage of life which is Moksha Trikona houses. 4. Moksha Trikona Houses – 4, 8, 12 · 4th House: It is the house which shows the beginning of the journey towards liberation. It is the house that denotes your innermost emotions and deep intentions. · 8th House: A deep dushthana house represents occult studies, research, mysteries and secrets. It also represents the seeds/beginnings of spiritual inclination. · 12th House: Also known as the house of ‘exit’. On a higher level it represents isolation, long journeys, spiritual people that meditate in isolation such as monks in monastaries, yogis in mountains, or nuns in churches.
In astrology, the concept of karma is closely linked to the idea of reincarnation and past lives. The theory suggests that our actions and deeds from our past lives can affect our current life. Some of the indicators of bad past life karma in astrology are: Afflicted Saturn: Saturn represents karma, and an afflicted Saturn in the birth chart can indicate bad past life karma. If Saturn is in a weak position, it can lead to challenges, delays, and difficulties in life. Afflicted Saturn can also indicate a lack of discipline, responsibility, and accountability. Retrograde planets: Retrograde planets can indicate unresolved issues from past lives. These planets may bring up challenges and obstacles that relate to past karmic debts. Malefic planets in the 6th, 8th, or 12th house: The 6th, 8th, and 12th houses are associated with challenges, obstacles, and hidden enemies. If malefic planets like Saturn, Mars, or Rahu are placed in these houses, it can indicate bad past life karma. Difficult aspects to the Moon: The Moon represents the mind and emotions, and challenging aspects like squares and oppositions to the Moon can indicate unresolved emotional issues from past lives. Debilitated planets: Debilitated planets in the birth chart can indicate a lack of strength and vitality related to past life karma.
planet which is responsible for past life is Ketu. So any planet in your chart if overlap ketu in another person chart than it indicates past life connection. now what do i mean by this? Lets say if in your chart moon is in cancer, so look at the chart of the other person whose chart you are concerned about and see if ketu is siting in the sign of cancer in his/her chart also. Then yes we can say that this ketu is overlaping your moon. or vice versa. if this connection is also showing in the navmansha chart then it is confirmed. now what different types of past life connection may be there which is continuing in this life. if someone’s moon overlap to another person’s ketu: moon is emotions, if this synastry is there then we can say that the person have past life emotional connection with you which is continuing in this life. and due to that you both are connected in this lifetime also. it can be any kind of emotional bond that you are sharing in this life. mars overlap ketu: some past life fight or passion you share with that person due to which you both are connected. it may be the case that the person may be your sibling in your past life. and due to certain pending karma you both are sharing this bond in this life. venus overlap ketu: this is soulmate connection or say past life love connection. you will feel instant connection with this person. due to some reason you are continuing your love in this life also. jupiter overlap ketu: the person may be your guru from the past life or you are a guru or a guiding angel in his/ her life in your past lives. saturn overlap ketu: some heavy pending karmas are there between you too. it can be some past life setbacks or loans, pain etc you are sharing with this person. but it is not a good overlap. mercury overlap ketu: this person may be your child or vice versa or he / she may be sharing some intellectual or friendly journey with you which is continuing in this life. sun overlap ketu: sun is soul , it is showing may be this person is your father in the past life or have some soul lesson are attached to this person. your souls are connected in this journey of life. its a good connection. Illusion that someone is connected to you from the past: Rahu is the main reason for illusion. If someone Rahu is overlapped by other person moon: the person with moon will be greatly affected by this overlap. Rahu is illusion or say a snake which will bite and spread the poison of illusion in the mind of person whose moon is overlapped by the Rahu of this person. He/ she will not get rid of the thoughts of the person, the person will feel that there is some connection i share with this person but that’s not true. its just an illusion nothing more than that. If someone Venus overlap other person Rahu: Instanct attraction, physically , mentally and sexually. this combination consider good in case of partnership. as it gives a great attraction towards each other. people will think that ohh! he/ she is my soul mate. but that’s not true its a type of attraction that two people are sharing.
