In 1963, the importance of Bhavath Bhava in astrology is thoroughly analyzed by Shri H.R.Sheshadri Iyer, Bangalore. He has written a chapter about bhavath bhava in his book ‘New Techniques of Prediction’. This article was very much appreciated by renowned astrologers like Shri. B.V.Raman.
What is Bhavath bhava?
In his own words , “Lord of the Bhava moved from the Bhava at a distance equal to the number of Rashis, the said Bhava is from lagna. This Bhavath bhava rashi causes this special situation and gives a special effect.”
In simpler words, second house from second house i.e third house (count two signs clockwise from second house, including the second house), it called bhavath bhava. Another example fifth house from fifth house i.e ninth house (count five signs clockwise from fifth house, including the fifth house), it called bhavath bhava. In this way we can say bhavath bhava of fourth house is seventh house, bhavath bhava of seventh house is tenth house, bhavath bhava of eleventh house is ninth house etc.
An important concept of Bhvath bhava is
“ If the lord of a house is placed in its bhavath bhava house, then that particular house will have tremendous development and prosperity.”
Ie., if the second lord is placed in its bhavath bhava house, ie the third house, then the financial status of the native would develop tremendously in its dasha period. If the fourth lord is placed in bhavath bhava of fourth house, ie in the seventh house, native would acquire lots of immovable assets in its dasha period.
I have given the bhvath bhava of each house in the below table.
