The Cycles System – Aavartan Paddhati by Prabodh Purohit

Editor: Heikki Malaska, Finland


The Cycles System /Aavartan Paddhati is a very simple and easy method for predictive purpose and to assess the nature of events of one’s life.

Since my early years of study of astrology, I was thinking of developing an easy method of prediction. During of the 40 years of study of astrology one thought which struck me was that without considering Dasha or Gochar one should be able to identify and predict the timing of specific events for a native. Therefore, I was thinking about devising an easy system, in which Dasha/Gochar or Solar Return or Tithi Pravesh is not required.


The methodology is very simple. The Ascendant – 1st H/sign – and the Moon’s Nakshatra (Janma Nakshatra) are to be considered for the events of 1st year of life, and similarly, for the 2nd year, the 2nd house will be the Asc. / Varsha Lagna (VL) and the Moon will be assumed to be in 2nd Nakshatra (Sampat) which would be the Varsha Chandra Nakshatra (VCN). Thus, we have to move forward the Ascendant and the Moon by one Rashi one Nakshatra respectively for every year.

Here, for the sake of convenience we take one year as 360 days i.e., as the Sun’s traverse through 360 degrees in the zodiac takes a year. The Zodiac of 360 degrees is divided into 12 parts, and each part is a sign/Rashi so each sign has 30 degrees and the Sun’s movement in one Rashi is equal to a month.

The Ascendant /Lagna moves forward one Rashi (30degrees) in a year. It moves 1d in 12 days and 30minutes (1/2degree) in 6 days and so on.

Under the stellar scheme, the Zodiac is divided into 27 parts, and each part is a Nakshatra. Each Nakshatra has 13d 20m. A Nakshatra has been further divided into 4 Padas/ Charans (4 quarters) and every quarter of Nakshatra has 3d 20m.

As per the Cycles System, the Moon moves one Nakshatra (13d 20m) in a year (360 days) and 1 quarter (3d 20m) in 90 days, it take 27 days for 1d (60m) and 9 days for 20m.


Example 1: Mrs. Indira Gandhi: Birth date: 19th November 1917. Time: 23:12h. Place: Allahabad, 25N28, 81E52; Ayanamsha- 22-42-53; Chitra Paksha.

Ascendant- Cancer 27d 36m 45s, Balance (in Cancer) yet to rise 2d-23m-15d. The proportionate period yet to operate is 2d-23m-15d /30d X 360days = 28.65 days. After completion of 29 days of Cancer, the period of second house starts. In other words, birth date 19-11-1917+29days = On 18-12-1917, the Annual Ascendant (Varsha Lagna) Leo started.

Moon is in Capricorn 5d 35m 44s that is in Uttara Shadha, 3rd quarter. First quarter of U.Sha is in Sagittarius and 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters are in Capricorn. The balance of U.sha is (10d –5d.35m.44s) 4d-24m-16s (Bhogya). Translated to days, this would be: 4d-24m-16s /13d-20m X 360days = 118.92 days. Birth 19-11-1917+3m 29days =18-3-1918, from 18 March 1918, Shravan Nakshatra (Varsha Chandra Nakshatra) will start.
