Shad Bala – Dig Bala

Spread the love

DIG BALA – This is the directional strength of a planet.

Dig Bala (or reverse Dig) – When planets are in certain angled the planets become very strong in their ability to take us in that “Direction”. When they are in the reverse position that planet may move us in the opposite direction.

  • 1st house – Mercury (intelligence and humor) and Jupiter (hope and optimism)
  • 4th house – Moon (trust our heart) and Venus (feel naturally happy)
  • 7th house – Saturn (We are realistic with others | carefully assess experiences)
  • 10th house – Mars and Sun (Willingness to compete and strive for our goals)

I have a very special announcement. I’m teaching a major course on Shad bala, the sixfold system of planetary analysis in Vedic astrology.

My students have been asking me to teach this course for years, and I had until now.
I describe the system of Shadbala here

Shad Bala – Sixfold Assesment of Strength

1. STHANA BALA – This is the positional strength of a planet.
2. DIG BALA  – Directional strength based on residence in an angle.
3. KALA BALA – It is strength of time. It consists of different factors:
4. CHESTA BALA – Planets which are relatively slow (among them retrograde planets) get a high Chesta Bala value.
5. NAISARGIKA BALA – Strength based on natural brightness.
6. DRIK BALA – Drik Bala is called aspect strength – gives a reward based on benefic aspects and detriment for malefic aspects.
7. TOTAL SHADBALA – The points are added up and quantized.

You will learn:

  • To recognize the posture of every planet and how well it “stands up” to many forms of pressure. This often shows how anger and frustration can become strength and discipline.
  • How the stance of Venus shows a natural state of “feeling valued” when we interact and compromise with others. This is important in our sexual life, married life and business life.
  • Finding a great teacher or guru and “stance of Jupiter”​.
  • The “inner force” of retrograde planets and how they lead us astray and back to the source.
  • The science of aspectual strength and how to measure multiple aspects and measure their affects.
  • How aspects to planets affect work, relationships and other life events.
  • How to interpret the “Directional strength” of each planet and each angle. This will show you if the planet leads you where you want to go or leads you astray.
  • The “planetary war” calculations and what they mean. These have been debated for centuries. I will show you how and why I use the system I use.
  • The important astronomy that you must know in order to do astrology correctly. It also will prove to you once and for all that Vedic astrology is CLEARLY a sidereal based system.
