Mahadasha: The Potential Game-Changer for Your Life's Dasha
According to Vedic astrology, each individual is impacted by the position of the planet in the solar system. A planet rules a particular time frame in an individual’s life. This phase is called Vimshottari Mahadasha. There are 9 planets as per astrology, and each of these 9 planets will have its own Mahadasha, and each Mahadasha is further divided into 9 Antardasha. An individual’s lifespan is counted as 120 years. So it is unlikely that one will have a repeated Mahadasha for a certain planet. The sequence of Mahadasha is in the following order starting from Ketu, Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn and ending with Mercury. The exact duration of the first Mahadasha will depend on the degree of the native’s nakshatra.
Mahadasha follows a calendar pattern. The impact of Mahadasha can be good or bad depending on several factors like the position of the planet, birth chart, on which house the planet resides and whether the planet itself is malefic or benefic. Mahadasha generally runs for years, but the impact of the Mahadasha is decided by the conjunction of other planets as well. However, the actual results depend on the effect of Antardasha. The sequence of Antardasha is also similar to that of Mahadasha.
Types Of Mahadasha:
