When A planet is in own Navamsha or vargottama, ,the results if benefic will be experienced to full , if malefic the result will be reduced in effect ,sometimes fully nullified. So it is always better to have planets well placed in Navamsha and trimshamsa rather than Rasi. For a women trimshamsa and Navamsha results are more pronounced. SITADEVI HAD ALL THE PLANETS EXALTED IN NAVAMSA.
Pandavas went to exile , popular notion is of pandavas in valkal clothes ,making their way alone through thick forest ,as along with Draupadi and five brothers. Wrong.
There were 10000 sanyasis [yati] .88000 grahasthas ,each had 30 dasa dasis .nearly a crore people were always with Yudhisthira all through his Vanavasa[exile] . He was worried about their food and other necessities. Thus Yudhisthira prayed Surya and got AkshayaPatra ,which could feed everyone till Draupadi ate .So when all had eaten Pandava brothers except Yudhisthira ate and then Yudhisthira ate ,and lastly Draupadi ate. Yudhisthira was donating 20 kg’s of Gold everyday. Whole day was spent in the discussion on Spiritual topics and discourses by holy men and a sumptuous meals with fearless dwelling due to protection from worlds mightiest Bheema and Arjuna. [can this be called exile] he had virtually a kingdom of his own even in exile. it was a dwelling that could put to shame greatest of cities.
Of the 12 years exile , a year in Indrakeel parvat to amass astras, 5 years were spent by Arjuna in Swargaloka by the side of INDRA[ where he spew the advances of Urvashi] . Bheema and others spent four years in the gardens of city of KUBERA in the gandhamadan parvat .Last four years together all the six spent on MERU parvat with Bramha and others .Last year[13th] was spent in matsya desha in Virat raja’s Palace in disguise.
Thus even in exile these lived as royally as ever. with no touch of sadness[natural yogis as they were by the grace of Krishna] . All this is the blessing of a shubha amsha planets. They ensure happiness even in bad phase. Rightly it is said that Pandavas were as happy as in mukti even in Vanavasa.
