Four fold level of Existence –
This is taken from Hindu Philosophy, but, applicable universally – we shall see how?
These four divisions [Four Trines in a horoscope] of life were Dharma, Artha, Kama and finally Moksha and its indications in a horoscope are mentioned below:
Dharma Trikona: The house 1st, 5th and 9th of any horoscope forms the Dharma Trikona denoting righteousness. Dharma is the duty towards self, friends, family members and society at large
Artha Trikona: The house 2nd, 6th and 10th of any horoscope forms the Artha Trikona denoting wealth, prosperity and financial well being. In order to survive we do need to earn, don’t we??
Kama Trikona: The house 3rd, 7th and 11th of any horoscope forms the Kama Trikona denoting sensual enjoyments and marital bliss. This is all about procreation and sex
Moksha Trikona: The house 4th, 8th and 12th of any horoscope forms the Moksha Trikona denoting spiritual attainment, ultimate satisfaction and liberation of soul from the worldly possessions and material gains. Having fulfilled all duties of Dharma, Artha, and Kama we are left with final approach to existence – that is Moksha or liberation. Some seek shelter in religion, some indulge in arcane practices, some seek refuge in millions of other avenues to find meaning of life and “What Next” – where do we go next?
If any of the above Trikona has ill placed planets or nodes, it causes delays, or lack of one area of our existence. For instance someone who is running around after religion and symbols, but is a trickster or hell bent on earning money at people’s belief in religion – we cannot call this as legitimate intentions, can we?? The same applies to persons seeking religion and salvation while they cannot give up indulging in carnal desires or pecuniary interests??
Astrologically Gems are not prescribed for planets placed in Moksha Trikona of a horoscope. This is where Mantras or Worship is given as a remedy. More about this later
Hint: Four Fingers of hand are also allocated one Trikona from list mentioned above.
