Sraddha saham n Eros Asteriod

I was browsing through some western astrology sites and i encounter 'Eros' the God of love and desire.
Modern astrologers has related this Greek God Eros with an asteroid # 433.

433 Eros is an S-type asteroid orbiting the Sun mostly between the orbits of Earth and Mars.
        orbit: 172,800,000 km from the Sun (average)
        size:  33x13x13 km

But if we move to old calculation, Greek astrology are based on mid-points calculation of various planets and houses. In our very popular classical text Tajik Neelkanti, Saham are obtained in similar fashion, with the help of adding and subtraction of grahas' longitude. These are 50 in number as identified in Tajik Neelkanti.
The concept of solar return charts has been extensively used by Greek astrologer and Vedic astrologer strongly valued Tithies, [the difference between moon and sun] in seen in Panchanges.
Still, Tajik charts or solar return charts has been used in our Vedic classics extensively.

The inner solar system contains the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, and moon as a satellite to earth.

A major element of our sexuality comes under the domain of Mars. The sign and house position of Mars in our natal charts, as well as the aspects Mars makes with other planets and points, gives us some insight into our personal sexual style. However, Venus, the planet of love, romance, and pleasure, plays a role as well. The Moon, representing our emotional nature, affects our sexuality. In fact, as sexuality is a powerful motivator and is part of our identities, we can safely say that all of our planets and points have something to do with our sexuality in some way.

When exploring the astrology of sexuality, I keep in mind that the entire chart of an individual is involved, but there are some factors that tend to play a larger role than others.
Mars. The sign of Mars shows us the style in which we express our sexual nature.

Venus. The sign of Venus shows us some of the important "trappings" and foreplay that helps us get in the mood for sex.

Moon. The sign of our Moon shows us some of our underlying emotional needs  that may express themselves as sexual fantasies and needs.

Eros. The sign position of the Asteroid, Eros, can reveal some of our erotic turn-ons, as well as the level of our erotic nature.
Modern western astrologer has now related asteroid #433 with Eros as it is between Earth and Mars.

I think that Greek God Eros is more related to Sraddha Saham.

Sraddha Saham is calculated as the difference between Venus and Mars and summed up with Ascendent.

Venus - Mars + Ascendent = Sraddha Saham. [for day\night births]

When our mind reached at Sattvic level this Sraddha Saham is more related to divine cosmic universal love energy, but at Rajasic level it indicate an EMPATH , hence i feel that it is more related to Greek God Eros.
This is more related to sign of 'Girdle of Venus' in palm.

There are more Saham related to love and marriage are:
1) Vivah Saham 'marriage' = (Venus Long)-(Saturn Long)+(Ascendant Long) for day births.
here if third parameter i.e. Ascendant's longitude does not fall between Venus and Saturn's longitude then add 30 degrees, otherwise dont. For night births take, Vivah Saham = Sat-Ven+Asc.  
While for parshana charts, sometimes, Vivah Saham(marriage part) is taken differently.
Vivaha Saham for Parshana = (7th house)-(7th lord)+(Ascendant)

2) Preeti Saham 'Love' = Vidya saham - Punya Saham [ for day and night]

3) Pardara Saham ' extra marital' = Venus - Sun + Ascendent [for day and reverse for night]

All these calculation are available in softwares.

Interpretation of Saham :

A) The Saham are like significant cosmic points in chart. Treat them like special ascendants. They are specifically computed for annual solar return chart (Tajik Varsh parvesh). If they fall into trik bhav(6th, 8th and 12th), they assumed to be weak. Any aspect of benefic planet on it strenghten their status, whereas malefic's aspect afflict them. Transits of benefic planets over them lead to gain with respect to related matters.

B)Note the transit of Jupiter over Saham (say for Vivah Saham sign) or its trine signs, the time of that transit will favour marriage possibilities.

C)Transit of natural malefics Saturn and Rahu over Saham result in delay, losses and troubles.

D) Find, when in the annual solar return chart, "Mantha" falls into saham sign. (or say simply when SuDarshan Dasa of House having Taurus will commence). That year will also prove favourable regarding that Saham.

E) Note the yogas in chart, involved either Saham's lord and its sign of occupation. Good yogas yield favour and arishtas obstruct.

Keeping in mind the above rules one can predict for all Sahams.

Here i am producing the results of sign-wise placement of Eros.
We can experiment and observed with similar fashion by taking the sign of Sraddha Saham and applying the results.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Aries

The placement or Eros in this cardinal fire sign is really exciting. If Eros is placed in Aries, you are likely to be a very passionate lover. Without much thought or consideration, you thrust yourself almost blindly into a relationship. Sensual and quickly aroused, you are some of the most dreamed about partners. On the down side, your passion may blow out swiftly just after a flash. Watch out or this attribute of your sexual nature can get the better of you. You can make your partner feel like an object of sexual desire. Your partner must realize your emotional intensity and sexual ardor for a healthy love life. You take much delight in dogged persuasion and relish your success after the conquest.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Taurus

Dominated by the goddess of love, Venus, Taurus is steeped in beauty, amorousness and a daydreaming. When your Eros is placed in Taurus, it's a real turn-on for passion and love. Getting intimate and finding some way to express your wildest ideas is the main driving force behind you. When aroused, you can be as romantic as the god of love. But your sexual desire is tinged with a strong wish to control your partner. You make one of the most possessive partners on earth and your partner may feel stifled. Simple and straight forward in matters of love, you are shorn of any kind of complication or superficial intricacy. Stick to a steady partner for optimum happiness in life.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Gemini

When Eros is coupled with Gemini, the sign of communication and complex thought process, you may pay heed more to intellectual compatibility than anything else. You would like to express your own views about love, passion and sexual experience rather than trying those in real life. You are curious and possess a strong yearning to know all about love matters. You would be articulate when talking about romance, a consummate writer when sending a note of love to your fiancé and never overlook any detail while experiencing physical pleasure. There is a sharp contradiction between your apparent flirtatious playfulness and your liking for idealized love.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Cancer

A person with Eros in Cancer is eager to share the joy and grief of his partner. You can be very giving in your relationship but at the same time will ask for a lot of attention. Nurturing some archetypal feminine qualities, you are capable of deep emotional as well as erotic intimacy. Supporting your partner through the ups and downs of life makes you one of the most coveted lovers. When threatened with insecurity, there is a chance to treat your lover just like an object of lust to fulfill raw passion. For you, sexuality is a viable way to awaken spirituality from the deepest realm of your being. You will want your partner to be chaste and loyal but might not uphold the same ideals for yourself.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Leo

When Eros, the God of love occupies this fiery sign, fireworks follow as an inevitable consequence. You would like to be the center of all attraction and seek humble submission from your partner. Majestic and dramatic as you are, you would radiate a lot of energy and warmth in your sexual life. You would like to be adulated or even worshipped as the hottest person. You get infatuated by the opposite sex very fast and easily indulge into romantic liaison. Despite all these drawbacks, you can be committed and loyal lovers sticking to a steady relationship. Your partner must not hurt your immense ego or the mesmerizing fireworks can turn into a blazing rage.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Virgo

Whimsical and moody at times, you are a fine combination of unsophisticated earthiness and quick wit. The same aspects are reflected in your relationship. You are prone to detailed analyzing before going for any kind of romantic affair. No doubt, this discriminating approach helps you a lot to choose the right partner but at the same time can leave your partner confused. You may appear to be critical and squeamish to others. You crave for tactile sensations. A soft touch, a kiss or just holding hands mean much to you. Sensitive, emotional and a shy lover, you can work wonders with your words. You do not like to plunge into the murky depths of physicality or try anything wild. You like to envisage love and even sexual love as pure and pristine

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Libra

Taking part in many activities with your partner is essential for Eros in Libra. You feel closely attached to your lover this way. Enjoying all that is beautiful in this world together and sharing your feeling top the list. Being an airy sign, you feel a strong need to communicate, to ask, being enquired about your own experience and giving tips or advice are important for you. With an ardent desire for romantic involvements, you can be quite flirtatious. You can give total attention to your partner's sexual needs forgetting your own. Restless and easily bored, you may feel trapped after entering into a relationship. Sociable and sensual, you are highly seductive to the opposite sex.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Scorpio

The most intriguing position of 12 zodiacs, Eros is all set to sear and bewitch you with this position. Nothing superficial can appease your immense appetite for love and sexuality. When you get attached to someone, your ardent emotions and all consuming passion may make the other one feel uneasy. The light-hearted, frivolous partner is surely not the best choice for you. When you seek heart and soul attachment with your love, social dogmas and taboos seem to be meaningless to you. You are not afraid to reveal your darker side and delve into the unknown realms of your psyche. You can attract the other sex like a magnet without much effort.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Sagittarius

If you have Eros in Sagittarius, you are keen to try something new or event eccentric with your partner. You would like to explore new horizons, face challenges and set targets to achieve in your love life. Beaming with exuberance and enthusiasm, you are a playful and happening lover. Sexuality is considered as any other game that can be played and won. You never hesitate to talk about your ideas and fantasies about sex. Openness and a lot of space are pivotal to you for a healthy relationship. You prefer having fun and a good laughter rather than indulging into passionate and amorous affairs. These lovers have an enthusiastic and exuberant appeal. Sex is meant to be fun and some roughhousing and plenty of hearty laughs are turn-ons. No matter however flirtatious or playful you may be, you want your partner to be absolutely loyal and honest.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Capricorn

Judgmental in your attitude towards others, you will never indulge in an affair without considering the pros and cons of your partner. You are opinionated and a partner who can help you in your daily affairs is likely to win your admiration. Nonetheless, you are sensual and adopt a simple approach while dealing with your sexuality. You have a strong urge for physical intimacy but that can not outweigh your rationality or calmness. Balanced and controlled you never think in abstract terms. Practical and real-life solutions are more appealing to you than obscure or distant ideals. You do not let your heart known to others easily, but when you do, your sexual life becomes a joy-ride for your partner.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Aquarius

Following the same well-trodden path is not your way of love. You have a strong desire to experience the bizarre, quirky and weirdness in your partner. Others tend to misunderstand you as unfeeling and dispassionate. You just find attachment and sensuality in most unlikely situations. You like elaborate discussions and inspire your partner to travel beyond known territories. Filled with charm and enthusiasm, you can always find a way out while others feel embarrassed. Playful and open-minded, you do not mind crossing the border to have fun and ecstasy in love. Your partner should be innovative and creative in sex otherwise you may feel bored and disinterested.

Eros or Sraddha Saham in your Chart is Placed in Pisces

In this sign, Eros loses his self assertive ego even to the extent of dissolving his own being and empathizes completely with the partner. Seeking utmost pleasure and heavenly delight, you want to take your fiancé back to the Garden of Eden where you can live happily ever after. Union to you is a sacred bond that must be sanctified and protected carefully. Physical love is not distasteful for you, but that is only a means to than the aim itself. Sensitive and mysterious, you can conveniently handle emotional baggage while others may consider that disgusting. You have a legendary mystic ability to realize the deep psychic dynamics of a sensitive partner.


I hope that this article with help in opening new thoughts and new way of interpretation.

Some pointers as collected by Shankar Hedge Ji:
1. Venus vibrates 12th from it at the age of 15.
3. (Given by admin of SA to me) Ketu implements itself in the 12th house at the age of 32 years.
4. If some jatak has the dasha chiddra on 21st year of his life (ie. After completion of 20 to beginning of 21) then on 32th year of his life he will get mritu or mritu tulya kashta.
5. If Mars & Ketu are conjunct in an angle or trine either the father or brother/sister will work for Police or Defence forces. Mars+Ketu anywhere can give troubles related to lord Ganesh. Which I learnt from my guru ji of native place. My modification is that if not related to lord Ganesh some problems in the area of spine or around that area as Mooladhara chakra is related to lord Ganesh. Many times the same combination can give litigation related to immovable assets if reflected in D-4 & D-30.
6. According to Banarasi Pundit ji, the 10th aspect of Sat is always destructive. 7th can give mixed results. The 3rd aspect always hides some hidden blessings.
7. When Jupi&Sat are together sign Aries will spoil at least 1 siginification of that house whichever the house it becomes from Lagna. My modification is, sign aries becomes sensetive if Sat is with jupiter, sign Taurus becomes sensetive if Sat is in 2nd from Jupi, Sign Gemini if Sat is in 3rd from Jupi & so on. 
8.  KNR ji's theory of, Dara Karakas attract. In case of love marriages DK of both the lovers either aspect each other or are in trine/angle to each other
