The rule regarding thoughts ||63||
1Hence the wise (astrologer), controlling his inner self, first enumerates properly the classes of minerals and so forth; having studied the verses (rg) of the sages, he desires (to fathom) the boundless ocean of variations in thoughts.
2Having added together (the numbers) of the Sun’s (sign) and of the ascendant-sign and having added one, he divides the sum (a) by seven; from the remainder he obtains the multiplier of the (corresponding) planet, and he multiplies the sum (a) by the multiplier (indicated by) the remainder.
3(The multipliers) are: 14 for Mars, 5 for the Sun, 21 for the Moon, 9 for Mercury, 8 for Jupiter, 3 for Venus, and 11 for Saturn.
4If (the planet) is in a cardine, one divides (the multiplier) by the navamsas in the cardine; if in its house, by (those in) its varga; and if in its base-triplicity, by (those in) its triplicity;
5(…) The rule which has been described is to be performed thus with the remainders of the divisions of the multipliers by the aforesaid divisors.
6Some (astrologers) desire that a planet in its own varga in a cardine should cause the fruition of such things as thoughts; if a planet is in a cardine in its own house or in the sign of its exaltation it indicates (the influence of) the qualities of that varga.
7If any mineral, etc., is received without a quarrel, it is to be known as having been produced with the characteristics of both the sign and the planet; with respect to minerals and so forth the ascertainment of this has been declared by means of the planets as they are in the series of signs,
8Thus has been described this whole rule for knowing the appearance of the thought of a man who is meditating. After this I will establish the rule regarding thoughts of lost things for the sake of glory and power in the world.
