Relationship between the Three Ascendants
The relationship between the Aroodha and the Udaya Ascendants are of prime
importance.
If they are 6/8, stop the Horary or Prasna.
If they are 2/12, stop the Prasna or Horary.
If they are in trines or angles, it is Life Formula or Jeeva Sutra
If they are powerful, it is Life Formula.
If the Aroodha Ascendant is powerful and if the Udaya Ascendant is powerless, it
is Roga or Disease Formula.

If the Udaya Ascendant is in the debilitation Sign or inimical Sign of the
Aroodha lord, it is Mrityu or Death.
If the three Ascendants, Aroodha, Udaya and Chatra are in trines, Life or Jeeva
is the result.
