There are 12 awastha of planet

1)Shyan

2)Upvaishan

3)Naitrapani

4)Prakashan

5)Gaman

6)Agaman

7)Sabhavas

8)Aagam

9)Bhojan

Method Of Calculations Of Awastha

Before knowing the calculations method first we understand some things.

1)We use Ashwani for 1, Bharni for 2 and so on Revathi for 27.

2)We use Sun for 1, Moon for 2, Mars for 3 , Mercury for 4, Jupiter for 5, Venus for 6 , Saturn for 7 , Rahu for 8 and ketu for 9 as number of planet.

3)As we know that every sign is dived into 9 navansh. So 1st navansh means 0 to 3°20′ is 1 at navansh and 26° 40′ to 30° is 9th navansh. You may just find it by knowing nakshatra pad. As we know that every sign has 9 pad of Nakshatras. So just knowing in which pad of Nakshatra planet is placed you may know it. For example Mars in kritika 1 pad in Aries sign means Mars in 9th navansh in aries sign.

4)Lagan sign number means Aries for 1 and Pieces for 12.

5)Estgati means in which Gati native is born. In our vedic system one days means 60 gati. Our day start from Sun rise and end at next Sun rise. Estgati means which is running at time of birth. 1 gati is equal to 24 minutes. So find out Estgati you have knowledge about Sunrise on the day of birth. Now find time eclipsed from Sunrise to time of birth. Now convert it into gati.

For example a native born in 21/07/1985 at 8:15 am where Sunrise on that day @ 5:11 am.

So time eclipsed from Sunrise to birth time is 3 hour 4 minutes. Means 184 minutes. Convert it into gati by dividing 24 then we get 7 gati and 16 minutes. So 8 gati running. So we use Estgati as 8.

6)Birth nakshatra means nakshatra where Moon is placed.
Now Method Of Calculations of finding awastha of planet

1) Multiply with Nakhshatra number (where planet is placed) with Planet number( which awastha we have to know)

2)Now multiply above results with Navansh number of planet( in which navansh number planet is placed)

3)Now add above results with birth nakshatra number (in which nakshatra number Moon is placed)

4)Now add Estgati number and lagan number with above results.

5) Now divide above results with 12 and note the reminder.

6) Number of reminder will be awastha of planet. According to below

1)Shyan

2)Upvaishan

3)Naitrapani

4)Prakashan

5)Gaman

6)Agaman

7)Sabhavas

8)Aagam

9)Bhojan

10)Nrityalipsa

11)Kaotuk

0)Nindra

In short Formula of awastha

A = [(S × P × N) + (B + G + L)]\12 = Note Reminder which gives awastha.

A = Awastha, S= Planet’s nakshatra number , N = Number of Planet, B = Birth star number, G = Estgati running, L = Lagan sign number.

Let’s take a example chart For finding awastha of planet

Sun in Pushya Nakhshatra. Moon in ashwani. Eatgati running is 8. Lagan is Leo .

[(8 × 1 ×2) + (1 + 8 + 5)]/12 = 30/12 = reminder is 6.

So Sun in Agaman awastha.
Moon in ashwani nakshatra.

A = [(1 ×2× 2)+ (1+8+5)]\12 = 18/12 = reminder is 6.

So Moon in Agaman awastha.

Mars in Vishaka nakshatra.

A= [(16×3×8)+ 14]\12 = 398/12 = remaining 2

Mars in Upvaishan awastha.
Mercury in Ashlesha Nakhshatra.

A= [ (9× 4× 9)+ 14]\12 = 338/12 =  remaining 2

Mercury in Upvaishan awastha.

Jupiter in Moola nakshatra.

A = [(19×5×4) + 14]\12 = 394/12 = reminder 10

Jupiter in Nrityalipsa awastha.

Venus in Pushya Nakhshatra.

A = [(8×6× 5)+ 14]\12= 254/12= reminder 2

Venus in Upvaishan awastha.

Saturn in Swati Nakshatra.

A = [(15×7×5) + 14]\12 = 539/12 = reminder 11

Saturn in Kaotuk awastha.

Rahu in Rohini nakshatra.

A = [(4× 8× 4)+ 14]\12= 142/12 = remaining 10

Rahu in Nrityalipsa awastha.
