Amsha Rulers and Motivations for Karmas

Amsha Rulers in Dashamsha (D-10) to track one's inner motives behind his/her Karmas.


The focus of the write-up is on grahas in Nirriti Amsha in Dashamsha (D-10).


Amsha Rulers are the Gods, Rishis and other good or bad mythological characters (of Hinduism) who govern the primary motives of planets and hence they govern the motives and karmas of a person. 


The 10 Amsha rulers or Devatas of Dashamsh kundali (D10) are: Indra, Agni, Yama, Nirriti, Varun, Vayu, Kubera, Ishana, Brahma and Ananta.


In Dig Charkra the Nirriti Kona is situated in the South-West corner, the graha lording this direction is the demon Rahu and DigPal (guardian) of this direction is Nirriti/Rakshas. It is situated right opposite to Ishana Kona, which is North-East ruled by DevGuru Brihaspati and its DigPal is Lord Shiva (as Ishana or righteousness).


Nirriti or Rakshas some say is the God of Adharma (non-righteousness), terror and terrible suffering. Their presence only is terrifying and unwelcoming. They are Asuras (demons), reluctant to adhere to naturally acceptable laws hence they constantly challenge and discover novelty in nature/their affairs also.


If one has grahas in Nirriti Amsha in Dashamsha (D-10) then the motivation of the grahas will be towards its Devata, Nirriti. These planets can give following two kinds of results.


~In the negative context, native may be self-motivated to get involved in corruption or he will be compelled to do non-righteousness karmas/acts in his work environment.


These may involve deceitful negotiation, manipulation, cheating, bribing, generating threat or terror, breaking all of the laws etc.


~ In the positive context the graha gives the native inspiration and ability to transgress existing knowledge base and build a new one. So native may contribute to totally new ideas/concepts, never heard before or never completely explored previously.


To read the result: say one has Mercury in 10th House in Dashamsha in Niritti Amsha. Then native will either do some adharma or do out of the box contribution in counting, accounting, communication, negotiation, broker, as a middleman, selling, medicine (in combination with the moon) etc.


Thus we can extract the inner motives behind the actions one does with the help of Amsha Rulers.


Every good software tells us about the Amsha Rulers (Devatas) of Grahas and Lagna in every Divisional Chart.


Example of Sun in Kubera Amsha in D10

For example, We all know that Sun is the naisargik karaka (natural significator) for leadership, politics, ruling and heading or leading an institution/organization.

If the Sun is placed in 10th House (of achievements) in Dashamsha Chart (D-10) of a native, then it guarantees leadership roles for the native in life. In other words, native will finally be head of an organization/group he is contributing for.

NOW: If this Sun is placed in Kubera Amsha (Shri Kubera is also the deity for wealth and money in Vedic system), then the primary focus of the native is on wealth generation and money creation. Consequently, this leader will be very good in generating wealth and money or creating the financial prosperity of the entire organization.


In the negative context, it can also make a native entirely focus on money depending up on how selfish he is (seen from many other aspects). Therefore, Sun in Kubera Amsha in the 10th House in Swargamsha (D10) can also make a leader who just wants to amass huge wealth for his personal motives, while contributing for leadership positions in the society.


Likewise, we can study the Amsha Rulers of planets in different Divisional Charts (Varga Chakras) for deeper meanings.


Note: any good Jyotish software lets one know the Amsha rulers in every Divisional Chart.
