Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)

Source: Wisdom Library: Brihat Samhita by Varahamihira

Upagūḍha (उपगूढ) refers to “being filled with”, according to the Bṛhatsaṃhitā (chapter 10), an encyclopedic Sanskrit work written by Varāhamihira mainly focusing on the science of ancient Indian astronomy astronomy (Jyotiṣa).—Accordingly, “If the disc of Saturn (śanaiścara) should appear glossy and if his course should lie through the constellations of Śravaṇa, Svāti, Hasta, Ārdrā, Bharaṇī or Pūrvaphālguni, the Earth will be covered with water [i.e., pracura-salila-upagūḍhā]. If his course should lie through the constellations of Āśleṣā, Śatabhiṣaj, Jyeṣṭhā, there will be prosperity in the land but slight rain; if his course should lie through Mūla, mankind will suffer from hunger, from weapons and from drought. We will now proceed to state the effects of Saturn’s course through each of the 27 constellations”.
