What Does Each of Your Planets Represent? (Quick Jaimini Karakas)

From highest to lowest planet degrees, ie, something at 29 degrees would be higher whereas something at 1 degrees would be lower.

The planets which are used are Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, as they are the closest to Earth, and therefore most impactual in physics.

Rahu and Ketu represent in your life cycle/vimshottari your obsession and separation. So during those time periods you will learn about your obsessions (rahu) in wherever its placed or become separated (ketu) from wherever its placed.

The Jaimini Karaka’s [your planets size, larger number = bigger, in reference to the image], are used in Vimshottari [life cycle], to tell you when these things are going to happen in your life. Ie, if you are going through a dasha time period of the 4th largest planet, you will have learning experiences about the home for the year/s that you are in that part of the cycle, etc.
