As shown in the ghataka chakra, based on the position of natal moon, one of the specific element of time namely Moon sign (rasi), Lunar day (Tithi), Weekday (vara), Lunar Asterism (Nakshatra) or the Ascendant (Lagna) can be inauspicious. Following priciples can be used in the analysis of the Ghataka Chakra:
1. If at any moment, there is preponderance of the ghataka elements, then there can be some injury/ pain inflicted on the person. So one must regularly checkout the Lunar Transit through the sign and the Nakshatra, the solar and lunar days and the Lagna of the moment to carry out some activities or remain cautioned about some impending danger. If many of the ghataka elements come together, then there can be indications of danger during that time. For example, I am born with Scorpio Lagna and I must be careful on the days when Moon is transiting through Taurus or Revati Nakshatra and that day happens to be a Friday and the lunar day happens to be a Nanda Tithi (pratipada-1, shasthi-6 or ekadasi-11).
2. The relationship of a person can also be checked using the Ghataka Chakra. To check this out, we need to check the presence of the Ghataka elements in the other person's horoscope. Thus for me (born in Scorpio Rasi), the natives with Taurus Rasi, Revati Nakshatra, born on Friday, in the Nanda Tithi and/or with Scorpio (Male) or Taurus (Female) Lagna can inflict injury. The presence of more ghataka elements confirm this.
3. The nature of injury can be seen from the nature of ghataka element and the lord of the element. If the ghataka element happens to be Moon, then the injury is on reputation, if they happen to be Weekday or the Lagna, the injury is more physical and if they happen to be Tithi or Nakshatra, the injiry is more mental and emotional. The lord of the ghataka element which caused the injury can say more on the exact nature of the injury based on its lordship, placement and yogas.
