In a human’s life, according to Vedic astrology, there are three vital things that are responsible for an event to take place. One of the aspects of an event to take place in astrology is “Dasha”. There are different planets which are responsible for influencing different aspects of our life. There is a perceived lifetime of an individual which is counted in 120 years. Every single planet has been assigned a specific amount of time in an individual’s life. Everyone in our life is divided in Mahadasha into 9 planets and these further divided into 9 Antardashas each. The following sequence is followed by Mahadasha – Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter, Rahu, Mars, Moon, Sun, Venus, Ketu. The lord of Nakshatra initiates Mahadasha, at the place where Moon is positioned at the place and time of birth. If you want to know the duration of Mahadasha exactly, you need to determine the degree of Nakshatra at the time of your birth.
The time periods of various Mahadashas are:
Ketu Mahadasha- 7 years
Venus Mahadasha- 20 years
Sun Mahadasha- 6 years
Moon Mahadasha- 10 years
Mars Mahadasha- 7 years
Rahu Mahadasha- 18 years
Jupiter Mahadasha- 16 years
Saturn Mahadasha- 19 years
Mercury Mahadasha- 17 years
Mahadasha may be defined as the calendar of our life according to Vedic astrology. A Mahadasha is favorable or unfavorable depend upon many factors mostly by the position of several celestial bodies at the time of birth and that is mentioned in our Janamkundali charts. Each planets Mahadasha have a time period for several years and you may not get the results related to only one single planet. Antadasha determines accurate results. Mahadasha is divided into 9 Antardashas in the same sequence of planets. Both the Mahadasha and Antardasha are responsible for the events that happen in your life. For instance, Rahu’s characteristics and power will follow you if currently, you are under the influence of Rahu Antardasha with Rahu Mahadasha. However, the characteristics and influence in your life events can change if the Mahadasha and Antardasha are mixed.
