Your Atmakaraka is the planet with the highest degree in any sign in your Vedic Astrology birth chart. It is the significator of your soul.
The Atmakaraka works for you in this life time to fulfill the mission of your ‘incarnational life purpose’ which is mainly described by the position of the Nodes of the Moon in your Vedic birth chart, though obviously the whole chart is a statement of your destiny.
The Atmakaraka is a special planet, the most important planet in your birth chart – Your Atmakaraka’s purpose is to help you to learn about your life meaning and grow spiritually in this life.
Therefore your Atmakaraka represents not only the positive gifts and the blessing you bring into this life.
The Atmakaraka can also work in a way that seems to obstruct your life-path – but his obstructions are always full of real opportunities for divine learning and enlightenment.
The Atmakaraka may be a strong planet in your Vedic birth chart, or it may be a weak planet. Obviously your life has an easier flow if your Atmakaraka planet is strong in your chart. But even if your Atmakaraka planet is weak, it feels so good if you listen to the teaching of the events it creates in your life, and if you alter your way of life that accords more with your spiritual essence, more with your incarnational life purpose for this life-time.
I am in my Atmakaraka predictive period (Dasa) now, and the changes in my life as the Atmakaraka manifests and as he does his job are vast. But as they take root, it feels so good. It feels so right.
