- In Horary astrology omens have of very much importance. Modern society however believes it is Superstition. Main reason for this is very less people observe omens, amongst them very few people are able to interpret it. In modern society so many omens are added in different society without giving due considerations to the principals. Finally when it gives no results conclude it as superstition. But our ancient saints clearly declared that omens are the answers given to our puzzled mind when we sincerely pray for it. Or it is the caution given to the devotee when he tries initiating any work or traveling etc. I am describing it as given by Saint Varahamihira. Varaha says “Shukra, Indra, Bruhuspathi, Kapisthala, Garuda, Bhaguri, Devala, who have described omens in detail and he is collecting them and along with the opinions of Vrushabhacharya and Bharadvaja saints, and also of the King of Avanthi Rajavardhana, and Saptarshi’s and also of the Maharshi Garga etc, and giving them in a schematic form since they are too vast for the readers.”
- Normally Omens appear at the beginning of travel. It may appear during or when something good or bad is going to happen to the traveller. Omens appear by their sound, movement, aspect, and talk etc. of the living beings in forest, in water, on the earth, in the sky, during day or night or at both times, which are around us in our village or town.
- Gender:-first one has to ascertain whether they are male, female or of common gender because it plays an important role in judging omens. Just by seeing deciding these factors is a difficult task. So our saints described the ways and means to decide these factors. If the animal or living being is of fat body, large arms or legs, high neck, wide chest, and beautiful but serious looking, courageous, it should be decided as male. Similarly of thin body, small chest and neck, small face, fearing type, sweet voice, should be decided as female. If both characters are mixed then it is of common gender. Here one must remember that what people living around say about that type of living being must also be honored.
- Who gets affected: – If humans and animals are travelling together, results of the omens is applicable to humans. If Army is travelling results of the omens is applicable to the king. Results of the omens appearing in the town affect the temple in the town. Results of the omens appearing over the Group of people or in village affect the leader. More than the leaders’ effect will be on the community, more than the community effect will be on the learned savant of the community and over the learned savant, on the aged people of the community.
- Stages of Sun:-During the day from Sun rise to Sun set, effectiveness of the Sun light changes continuously. Our ancients divided the full day in 8 parts and each part of 3 hours is called Prahara. Sun’s effective ness changes in each Prahara. So they have given him separate names for each Prahara. It is as follows. Here from twilight Sun up to Sun rise is called Mukta Surya ( like 8th Prahara)
|Prahar||NorthEast||East||South East||South||South West||West||North West||North||Rset of
- Results of Omens: – During travel or when one is posited in any place, omen which appears in any of the above directions respective animals or persons will meet him. For e.g. if the omens appear in the first part of the three divisions in East to South east native will meet Treasurer, if in second part he will meet Agnihotri, if in 3rd part meat ascetic.
- Residents: – In the old city concept, according to Vastu particular category people are allotted particular places in a city. Following is the detail.

Similarly omens of eunuch animals, omens by diseased, omens by feared, omens indulged in quarrel, omens by animals ready to eat meat, omens by animals on the other side of the river, omens of animals on estrum should not be considered. That is one should not consider irrelevant or omens of unnatural animals.

- Benefic Omens: Omens appearing on or from palatial buildings, Temples, holy places, (residence of godly persons, Brahmins, cows) delightful places, sweet, beautiful fruits and flowers, trees which secrete milky juices, are beneficial. Amphibians, living beings which live in forest as well as in villages if show omens in own places, during their natural time, they are also beneficial.
- Omens appearing in above 10 varieties, if living being lives on vegetation it is called mild omen. If it is living on nonvegetarian food, it is called Wrath omen. If the living being lives on both varieties then it is treated as mixed omen.
- These above five deepta’s are stronger respectively. Among ten deepta’s described above, if any two deepta’s appear in a day, it should be applied to the persons as described in Para 4 above.
- Chesta deepta: – If omen of any living being is tone deepta and its starts from low voice to high pitch or vice versa, it is called Chesta deepta.

- The Mukta Sun is firy. ( Anagarini) Prapta Sun is glorious and Dhoomini Sun is said to be surrounded by clouds. Shanth Sun is calm. Omens appearing in the west of Firy or Angarini Sun ( or Mukta Sun) are indicating the events of the past. Omens appearing in the west of glorious Sun ( Prapta Sun) are indicating present events. Omens appearing in the west of Cloudy Sun ( dhoomini) are indicating the events of the future. Similarly omens appearing in the west of Shanth or Calm Sun should be decided accordingly that direction is firy, glorious, or cloudy.That is at the time when omen appears note whether Sun is Angarini, Prapta or dhoomini. Fifth direction from there, that is clockwise west or opposite direction, reasult applicable to that direction is applicable to past, present and future. For e.g. Good Omen appearing in Angarini Sun, that is 5th from it, shanth Sun gives good results only. If the Omen is bad and appears in angarini Sun but anticlockwise 5th direction result is little good. Similarly for Deepta Sun good omen in clock wise gives good results and in anticlock wise gives little good results. It applies to Dhoomini Sun also. If Omen appears in low level places one will get the results immediately. But if the Omen appears at higher level places one will get the results belatedly. Results of the omens appearing at higher levels go incresing while results of the omens appearing at low levels go on decreasing quantitatively. Saint Parashara opines that if the omen appears in plane ground it results last long. For e.g. if the owl cries by 7AM at North East direction at low level place, the direction which indicates the result is South East, Sun at that time in South east is considered as Dhoomini. This shows in very near future somthing bad is going to happen and it will end soon.

- If during travel one omen says that it is good to travel and another omen says it is inauspicious to travel, inauspicious omen definitely gives bad results. In such cases it is better to judge which omen is strong and do accordingly.
- At the time of travel one omen says it is good to enter, later at the middle of the travel another omen says it is good to travel, it shows fulfillment of desires and success in the travel. But during house warming etc. if first the auspicious omen “for the middle of the travel” appears and then later auspicious omen to start the journey appears, it gives good results. Because for such ceremonies omens should be in reverse order.

- After going through the above details of the omens we get bewildered. Because much of the bird and animals mentioned are not available now a days. So what is the use of learning such omens. But our ancients know about the happenings in future. So they have first described the general principals. They can be applied to the present conditions. e.g. Elephant, Horse, chariot are out dated but we can apply them to modern conveyances with their normal horns and sound and unusual ones. Mild and sweet sounds are always benefic. Omens of animals and humans agitated, or worried are result less. If we properly understand and apply the omens coming across, we can get the amazing results. I will describe the further details given by shri Varaha in next chapter.
