Planets give different phalas (results) in each of the 27 nakshatras (lunar mansions). These phalas relate to the quarter (charana/pada) of a nakshatra in which a planet is placed and the dristhi (aspect) of other planets that it receives. The beauty of Ravana Samhita is that a planet in one pada might give problematical results, whereas in the next pada of the same nakshatra it can give fortunate results. This difference is subtly highlighted and one that an intelligent student must not ignore. Here follows the fifth in this series of translations of Ravana Samhita, relating to the sixth asterism Punarvasu, which stretches from 80 degrees to 93 degrees-20 minutes of the natural zodiac i.e. from 20 deg Gemini to 3 deg 20 minutes in Cancer. The Lord of this nakshatra is Jupiter. The easiest way to interpret the result of any graha in any asterism is to note down its nakshatra lord & also the lord of the sign it is placed in, these two planets will always influence the results of the planets placed in the said nakshatra.
