place ourselves in relation to the universe, and we can see our whole existence and relate this life to a continuous whole. It is very seldom that this knowledge can be vouchsafed to
any individual, and this chart should not be lightly read."
Dwadasamsa : From the following a few combinations of various houses we can know the guide lines of delineating the Dwadasamsa Chart.
If the lord of the rising Dwadasamsa occupy the ascendant, the person concerned will have the same luck or prosperity as that of his father. But should the said lord occupy 6th,
8th or 12th house, the person will not have bodily happiness. So all be the case with regard to his parents. If the above referred lord be in 11th house, gain through ancestral
property is denoted. If however, the said lord be depressed, eclipsed, be a malefic or occupy inimical house, reverse results are indicated.
Find the Rasi and the Dwadasamsa occupied by the lord of 8th houses. When the Sun in his orbit transits the said rasi on the Dwadasamsa or a rasi to it, death may come to pass.
If at birth the Moon occupy (1) a Dwadasamsa owned by a benefic or a rasi or a benefic and be aspected by the lord of lagna or (2) though posited in the malefic rasi be aspected by
the owner of the said rasi and be not aspected by any other planet, the evil that would have otherwise be fallen will be completely warded off.
Of the lagna and the Moon, find which is stronger. Note the Dwadasamsa of this stronger signification when the Moon transits through a rasi which is as many signs removed from the
sign indicated by the Dwadasamsa, the birth of the child may be predicted.
If a person is born in Dwadasamsa owned by Aries, he will be mischievous, robber and take to the evil way and practices of such a vicious class of people, if in a twelfth portion of
a sign owned by Taurus, he will have plenty of women and will suffer from diseases, if in Gemini, one will be a gambler but well conducted.
If born in Dwadasamsa of Cancer, one will be addicted to bad practices. If born in Leo, one will be virtuous, wealthy, attended and association of brave men. If in-Virgo, one will he

Thrimsamsa of Jupiter, one will be wealthy, if in Mercury, he will have great respect from his preceptors, God, elders, enjoy the society of virtuous men and be attended by relatives.

When planets that are in their own Thrimsamsa will do all that have been ascribed to them as karkas or significators. If there be atleast one planet in his own or exaltation house
and at the same time aspected by or associated with a friendly planet, the native will become a king endowed with riches, long lived, will be famous, possess children and happiness.
