Someone asked me if atmakaraka Mars in the 8th house was as bad as other websites have described. My answer to that is you have to know what this principle actually represents. What is a good or bad atmakaraka anyway? My experience is that you cannot determine details like the quality of relationships, financial security, charisma, intellect, or unfortunate events with this alone. This is a technique for looking into specific soul-qualities of a person, and how in tune they are with their soul nature.
