Ultimate Guide To Gnati/ Gyati karaka in Vedic/ Jamini Astrology: Today I will talk about Gnati Karak and also the importance of Gnath Karak in Jaimini Astrology. As you know, the karak grahas or planets in Jaimini astrology are different from the karak grahas in Parashara Jyotish.
Your Gnatikaraka is the planet with the 6th highest degree, it sure is a signification of significance! Not just any old house but the 6th house – the house related to Service (Work), Daily Jobs, Obstacles, Illnesses (Short Term), and Health. It carries the harshness of the mundane world yet its influence can be a positive one.
When you’re running a chara dasha that has the Gnatikaraka you can get more conscious about your health, find a better job or even make your current job more exciting! Who knew that one planet could make such a difference?
In Parashara Jyotish, the karak grahas are the nasargika Grahas or Planets. Like:
- Sun is of father,
- Moon is of mother,
- Venus is of wife etc.
But in Jaimini Astrology, the Karak grahas are seen according to their degree. The grahas or planets which is of the highest degree is called Atmakarak. The Grahas or Planets which are of lower degree are called Amatakarak.
So, let us see this in this table. Like the Grahas or Planets of 28 degrees, Mars is called Atmakarak. In any kundli, any Grahas or Planets can be of the highest degree. Suppose, in any kundli,
- Jupiter is of the highest degree and it is 29 degrees, then Jupiter is called Atmakaraka.
- The Grahas or Planet of lower degrees than the above is called Amatyakaraka.
- The Grahas or Planet of lower degrees than the above is called Bhratrikaraka.
- Similarly, the Grahas or Planet which is of a lower degree than the above is called Matrikaraka.
- The Grahas or Planet of lower degrees than the above is called Pitrakaraka or Pitri Karaka.
- The Grahas or Planet of lower degrees than the above is called Gyati Karak or Gnatikaraka grah.
- The Grahas or Planet of lower degrees than the above is called Darakarak.
So, in Jaimini Astrology, the Karak Grahas or Planets are related to the seven Grahas or Planets. In this, Rahu and Ketu are not considered. When we see the degrees, they are taken in decreasing order. So, the Karak Grahas or Planets which is on the 6th number is called Gnatikaraka (GK).
Now, what is the meaning of Gnatikaraka (GK)?
The word “gnati” defines as a “paternal relation, a kinsman in general, a father, a brother, or deceased ancestor”. It is both a paternal and maternal connection. But in Jamini Astrology the word Gnati not only means relations but also represents enemies. Thus Gnatikaraka (GK) signifies obstacles, and hurdles related to the 6th, 8th, and 12th houses.
This allows us to understand the significations of all three of these houses, such as enemies, maternal relatives, diseases, debts, disagreements, competitions, legal proceedings, servitude, arguments, strife and service, conflicts, disease, healing, health, court case, courtier, uncle in relations, So, the subjects which are related to the 6th house are related to the Gnatikaraka (GK).
Similarly, the subjects of the 8th house, like accidents, longevity, chronic diseases, conspiracies, any kind of research, sudden incidents, , death and rebirth, dissolution of identity, astral bridge, physicians, druggists, surgeons, healers their relation is also with the Gnatikaraka (GK).
And the subjects related to the 12th house, like expenses, foreign trips, spirituality, and hospitalization, and their relation is also with the Gnatikaraka (GK) in Jaimini Astrology. So, the houses where Gnatikaraka is present will connect the 6th, 8th, 12 house subjects like foreign trips, hospitalization, potential imprisonment, foreign trips, foreign relations and spiritual knowledge, and all the related obstacles in life.
Now, suppose in a horoscope, the Gnatikaraka is Moon. Then we have to see
- What is the strength status of the Moon in the horoscope?
- In which sign moon is sitting and which house it is?
- Who is the lord of Moon’s placed house?
Now, the Gnatikaraka (GK) concept is related to Jaimini Astrology. But here, we have to see the Jaimini Astrology and the Parashari astrology together. If the Moon is the Gnatikaraka, then in the Moon Mahadasa or Antardasha the person will face obstacles. There can be different types of obstacles throughout the Mahadasa or Antardasha period.
If the Moon is the Gnatikaraka in the birth chart. Then there could be problems related to the 6th house, 8th house, or 12th house during the moon Mahadasa and Aantardasa.
- Since the 6th house is related to health, then in the Moon Mahadasa or Antardasha, a person can have health-related problems. There can be some diseases related to the Moon’s placement in the chart and the placement of the depositor of the Moon.
- The 8th house is related to accidents. There can be some accident or sudden change in life, good or bad depending on the chart in the Moon Mahadasa or Antardasha. Or the person can suffer from some terminal diseases.
- The 12th house is related to hospitalization, and expenses. So, if the Moon Mahadasa or Antardasha is running as per the native’s chart and then there can be some sudden rise in expenses during the period, whether it is through hospitalization, or through some other means, expenses will rise suddenly.
More Examples of House wise result
For example, If the Moon is Gnatikaraka and sits in the 4th house in a kundli and becomes the Gnatikaraka (GK) house, then it will give problems related to the 4th house. For example, there can be some problem related to the house.
There can be some case of a court case, litigation, or there can be some problem related to the vehicle. There can be some accidents related to the vehicle. So, the house in which the Gnatikaraka (GK) house is sitting, it will give problems related to the house in its Antardasha.
Now, if the Gnatikaraka (GK) house is sitting in the 6th house, it can give diseases, can bring a situation of debt, but because the 6th house is 9th from the 10th house, which is the lucky house of the career, it can give problems related to the career. The sudden dismissal from the job or facing some kind of humiliating situation, then this kind of situation can also come in the Antardasha of the Gnatikaraka (GK) house.
If the Gnatikaraka (GK) house is sitting in the 8th house, then there is a possibility of accidents. If the Gnatikaraka (GK) house is sitting in the 12th house, then there can be various kinds of expenses, and there can be cases of court cases.
The Gnatikaraka (GK) house and its lord must be identified within the horoscope to determine whether any obstacles or problems may arise.
For further example, if the Gnatikaraka planet is the lord of the 3rd house when placed in the 6th house could lead to difficulties with siblings, whereas if the lord of the 4th house is located in the 8th house then issues with vehicles could occur.
Malefic planets like Mars and Saturn in the Gnatikaraka (GK) planet’s house, either Mahadasa or in Antardasha, could indicate tough times ahead. As such, it is important to be aware of the implications of the Gnatikaraka (GK) planet.
