Mathematical astrology is as important as Predictive astrology in astrology. It is a base through which astrology determines the Nakshatra and planetary positions and forecasts there by. Here in this article l will discuss Kala Bala which is a piece of Shad-Bala by which planetary strengths are measured.
KaalaBala means the time Weakness. Exactly we can say that the planets obtain Time Strength which is permanent from various sources. Time Strength is sub-divided into six parts namely, NataunnataBala (diurnal strength), PakshaBala (Moon phase strength), TribhagaBala (day night strength), Varsha, Maas, Dina Bala (Year, month, day strength), YuddhaBala (planetary war strength) and AyanBala (equinoctial strength). Here in this article, we will discuss the first three sub-divisions of Time Strength of planets.
In NataunnataBala the Moon, Saturn and Mars are stronger during midnight and weaker during midday. The Sun, Jupiter, and Venus get stronger at midday and are less strong at midnight. In Time Strength of planets, Mercury always has full strength.The Sun, Moon, and Mars acquire 60 points when a native is born at midnight. Same planets receive 0 points when a native is born at after noon time. The Sun, Jupiter, and Venus get 60 points when a native is born during midday and has 0 points when a child is born during midnight.
The PakshaBala is connected with the lunar phase. There are two Pakshas in a month; these are Krishna Paksha and ShuklaPaksha. A Paksha is 15 days. According to Shad Bala, auspicious planets are strong during Shukla Paksha. Jupiter, Moon, and Venus have an auspicious effect on Mercury for 8 days during Shukla and Krishna Paksha. These planets are strong in ShuklaPaksha. The Sun, Mars, and Saturn have an inauspicious influence on Mercury for 8 days during the two Paksha. These planets are strong in Krishna Paksha.
The Moon has 120 points on New Moon and Full Moon day. Moon becomes strong with 60 points during the Paksha and extremely effects human lives. To see the strength of Paksha the difference between the longitudes of Sun and Moon has to be found out. If the angle is greater than 180 degree then it has should be withdrawn from 360 degrees. The result is divided by 3 to get the final result which is the Paksha strength of a planet. The formula to determine Paksha strength of planet is- (Moon / Sun) = PakshaBala of the planet
In TribhagaBala the day and night are divided into three parts. Jupiter always gets 60 points in TribhagaBala. If a child is born in the first half of the day then his horoscope will have strong Mercury with 60 points. If the birth time of a native is on the second half of the day the Sun is strong with 60 points and if the birth has taken place in the third part of a day then Saturn is strong in his horoscope with same opinions.
The Moon gets 60 opinions if a child is born in the first part of the night. Venus is strong in the horoscope if a birth takes place on the second half of the night and Mars is strong with 60 points if a child is born in the third part of the night.
