My father spent the past few days hunting for a jatakam like Sri Rama’s in the recent past.
The Chaitra Suklapaksha SriRamanavami of 1956, yielded pretty interesting results.
A person on born on that day has Surya (Uccha) and Budha in Mesha , Chandra (Sva) and Guru (Uccha) in Karkataka, Kuja (Uccha) in Makara, Sukra (Uccha) in Vrishabha… so 5 planets in sva – uccha sthanas.. only thing is nakshatra is not Punarvasu.. so that is a major difference. (If you know some one born on that day, demand a treat!)
Using the Tithi Calculator at this Site, I verified the tithi durations from Amavasya to Sri Rama Navami of that year. As anticipated, the tithi durations are not uniform. If you remember my calculations here : Casting Sri Rama’s Jataka Chakram! I had stated that I had assumed uniform degree separations for each tithi (12 degrees between the sun and the moon) and an average value for tithi durations. I had said that maybe if we fine-tune the calculations, the sun might be present in Mesha even though the Navami chandra was in karkataka. (This is not possible using “average” values in calculations)
Data as per Tithi Calculator at this Site showing varying tithi durations.
