Lajita (ashamed) Avastha

Lajjita Avastha is in effect:

# when a Graha that is joined with the Sun, Saturn or Mars is in the 5th

#or joined with Rahu or Ketu.

The stronger the Sun, Saturn or Mars, the greater is the shame of the Lajjita Graha.

Whenever the Graha is in the 5th Bhava of any divisional chart AND also is joined with Sun/Mars/Saturn/Rahu/Ketu in the RASI, it's in Lajita Avastha in respect to THAT division.


Garvita (Proud) Avastha

Garvita Avastha is in effect when a Graha is in exaltation or Mulatrikona.

The Graha in Garvita Avastha feels a healthy sense of pride and confidence in respect to its accomplishments.

Garvita Avastha is also known as Nirvishamka “fearless/confident” Avastha.


Kshudhita (Starved) Avastha

Kshudhita “starved” Avastha is in effect when:

#a Graha is in an enemy’s Rasi,

#joined with an enemy,

#planetary aspected by an enemy

#or when joined by Saturn

What is worth to say is that when the enemy aspecting/joining is a papa (malefic), the avastha isn't Kshudhita, but Kshobita, another worse kind


Trishita (thirsty) Avastha

Trishita Avastha is in effect whenever a Graha:

#is in a water Rasi

#AND aspected by an enemy.

Additionally, a Saumya Graha aspecting combats the Trishita.

An inimical Graha joining a Graha in a watery rasi will cause Kshudhita, it is ONLY the aspecting enemy that will cause Trishita.

Trishita Avastha lets us know that a Graha in a watery Rasi can still be productive even when aspected by enemies, though it will not be happy.

As the name Trishita “thirsty” implies, Trishita Avastha indicates the lack of emotional fulfillment that a Graha experiences.

Unlike Kshudhita Avastha, however, a Trishita Graha can be productive, but never fulfilling of happiness.


Mudita (delighted) Avastha

Mudita Avastha is in effect when a Graha is in:

#a friend’s Rasi,

#joined with a friend,

#Graha aspected by a friend

#or joined by Jupiter

Note that Saturn and the Sun should NEVER be treated like friends in that Avastha when they're joined with the Graha in question.


Kshobita (Agitated) Avastha

Kshobhita Avastha is in effect when a Graha is joining the Sun or aspected by a Kruura Graha who is also an enemy.

So, anytime a Graha is aspected by an enemy which is also a Papa, the Avastha changes from Kshudhita to Kshobhita.


Effects of Kshudhita and Kshobhita Avasthas

The two Avasthas: Kshudhita and Kshobhita are the two most damaging Avasthas.

When a Graha has only Kshudhita and Kshobhita influences, and no Garvita or Mudita influences, it will not only be completely unproductive, it will entirely destroy the Rasi in which it is placed and thus any Bhava cusps falling in that Rasi.

If it has more Kshudhita and Kshobhita influences than Mudita and Garvita influences, it will be productive at times only to loose everything at other times and significantly damage the Rasi it is placed in, though not destroy it completely.


Effects of Mudita and Garvita Avasthas

A Graha with only Garvita and Mudita influences will reveal a most healthy Rasi and be extremely prodcutive. If the Garvita and Mudita influences are greater than the Kshudhita and Kshobhita influences, then the Rasi will fare relatively well and the Graha itself be relatively productive.


Jagrad (Awake) Avastha

A Graha in exaltation or own Rasi – also include Mulatrikona.

Effect: Full – A Jagrad Graha has its full strength to affect its own affairs as well as to affect the affairs of the Grahas it joins or aspects.


Svapna ("sleepy") Avastha

A Graha in a natural friend’s Rasi or in a natural neutral’s Rasi.

Effect: Half – A Svapna Graha has half its strength to affect its own affairs as well as to affect the affairs of the Grahas it joins or aspects.


Sushupti (“sleeping/unconscious”) Avastha

A Graha in debilitation or natural enemy’s Rasi.

Effect: Empty – A Sushupti Graha has no strength to manage its own affairs as well as no strength with which to affect the affairs of the Grahas it joins or aspects.


Effects of bad Avasthas in the Karma (10th) Bhava

“The person partakes of sorrow when Lajjita, Trishita, Kshudhita or Kshobhita are in the Karma place.”

The 10th Rasi from the Lagna is the Karma Sthana, the place where one’s actions are concentrated and manifested. To have these ill Avasthas destroy the 10th Rasi and thus spoil one’s capacity for significant fruit bearing actions is very disheartening.

A Graha in one of these ill Avasthas in the 10th Rasi indicates a source of sorrow and pain that destroys the person’s capacity to actively be productive.


Effects of Lajita Avastha in the Putra (Child) Bhava

“And also a Lajjita Graha in the child place causes loss of children though always one remaining.”
Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra: Graha Avasthas, 22

Lajjita Avastha in the 5th Rasi is considered to cause greater trouble than in most other Rasis. The wellbeing and successful raising of children was considered very important, and is still considered as the most important duty for a householder to fulfill. Inability to do so, whether through bad luck or simple negligence, was considered a stigma. Lajjita Avastha in the 5th Rasi indicates the unsucceful or improper use of one’s intelligence and creativity.


Deepta “radiant” Avastha.

A Graha is radiant when in its exaltation Rasi.
This is the highest Deeptaadi Avastha and indicates a very exuberant and happy Graha along with radiant feelings of happiness in respect to its involvement with the Rasi in which it is placed.

Include the Moon in its Mulatrikona portion of Taurus in this Avastha as well.


Svastha “self-abiding” Avastha

Svastha literally means “self-abiding” and refers to the idea of being sound, healthy, confident, comfortable and in its natural state.

A Graha is self-abiding when in its own Rasi. A Graha in SvasthaAvastha has a confident involvement with its Rasi and provides a secure and healthy feeling.


Pramudita “delighted” Avastha

A Graha is delighted when in a great friend’s Rasi. Just as we become happy upon being invited to our best friend’s house, so is a Graha in Pramudita Avastha. Just as we feel comfortable and free at our best friend’s house, like we can do anything there, so feels a Graha in Pramudita Avastha.

A Graha in Pramudita Avastha finds happiness and satisfaction as it delightfully gives its effects. Even if the effects are not as great as desired, the Pramudita Graha is able to find some happiness with it.


Shanta “serene” Avastha

A Graha is serene when in a friend’s Rasi. Shanta Avastha is similar to Pramudita Avastha, but to a lesser degree. Rather than feeling delighted about its involvement with the Rasi in which it isplaced, the feeling will simply be one of peace and serenity.


Dina “scarce” Avastha

A Graha is scarce when in a neutral’s Rasi. Shanta Avastha indicates a Graha who feels that it just barely manages due to its involvement in the Rasi in which it is placed.


Dukhita “miserable” Avastha

A Graha is miserable when in an enemy’s Rasi, whether in a great enemy’s or simply an enemy’s.Just as we feel miserable when in a place where we are undesired and provoked, so feels the Grahain Dukhita Avastha.


Vikala “impaired” Avastha

A Graha feels impaired when joined with a Papa Graha: the waning Moon, Mars, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu. The burden of the impairing Graha makes the impaired Graha feel unable due to stresses,exhaustion, inability, etc. Such a Graha struggles to operate at its best and thus the affairs of the Rasi in which it is placed are also a struggle. For instance, if Venus is in Vikala Avastha the spouse will be impaired. The spouse not feeling well at times will then impair the Rasi in which Venus is placed.


Khala “low” Avastha

A Graha is low when in debilitation Rasi. Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra uses the term “Khala” Rasi in the Sutra, Khala meaning low and being another name for debilitation, for which the commonly used Sanskrit word is Neecha, also meaning low.

The Graha in Kala Avastha feels down in the dumps due to its involvement with the Rasi in which it is placed. Dura the Dasa of such a Graha, one is certain to feel low and down and out


Kopi “angry” Avastha

A Graha is angry when joining the Sun. Kopi also refers to the idea of being in contradiction with, or incompatible with something.

The Graha in Kopi Avastha is, therefore, bothered, unable and frustrated. Other Graha’s are incompatible with the all exclusive one Graha the Sun and feel akward and unable when joined with the Sun. The inability is frustrating and so an angry feeling is the result.
