Let me just give you all the basic guidelines on how to analyze the Atmakaraka planet in a very simple manner without much complications:
I will go step by step to make you understand that what all has to be seen w.r.t Atmakaraka & in what order and also how to derive logical conclusions out of it.
Let me again take my example:
02nd Nov 1984, 09:11:18am, Chandni Chowk, Delhi, India
Atmakaraka planet: Mercury, Lord Vishnu devotion necessary for the soul, It also implies that soul derives comfort in getting merged with the parameters of mercury. So now we should know all the parameters of mercury before going ahead.

Like basically you should KNOW your Atmakaraka well to understand your self well. Now let’s Move ahead:
How much it has advanced in degrees: 29 degree 53 minutes(Its advancement shows the advancement of the soul on the spiritual path towards the God, so higher the degree, the better it is for spiritual advancement)
Placed in which bhava as per cusp: 12th house.(Align its results w.r.t this bhava-Like in this case Atmakaraka is in the mode of renunciation, loss of everything).This will happen on visible level, since we are analyzing lagan/cusp chart
Which is the Planet aspecting or joining it: Ketu (again placed in 12th as per cusp), the planet joining or aspecting the Atmakaraka, imparts its qualities to the Atmakaraka, so here ketu is imparting its detachment qualities and moksha like attitude to Atmakaraka. This will happen on visible level.
In which rashi this Atmakaraka is placed in D-9 chart: Gemini happens to be in his own sign. Hence Comfortable and free to behave in his own free will on Conscious level since we are talking w.r.t D-9 chart
Which Planet is joining this Atmakaraka in D-9(aspects should not be taken in D-9): NA, if some planet is joining Atmakaraka over here, it will impart its qualities to Atmakaraka on the conscious level, not on materialistic level.
In which bhava this Atmakaraka is placed in D-9: 7th House, this house in D-9 depicts So Native has to align himself with the parameters represented by this house to move forward on the path of enlightenment. This has to be done on conscious level since we are talking w.r.t D-9 chart
In which Dreshkanda (D-3) this Atmakaraka is placed: Mithun or Gemini, its own sign, hence Comfortable and free to behave in his own free will.
Shashtyamsa (D-60) of Atmakaraka: Chandra rekha, a comfortable division for the any planet to be in. Comfortable and free to behave in his own free will on SUB,SUB SUB and Supra Conscious level ( 3 levels can be seen from D-60)
Rashi in which this Atmakaraka is placed in D-60: Virgo, Its own, Mooltrikona and exalted sign, hence Comfortable and free to behave in his own free will on SUB,SUB SUB and Supra Conscious level ( 3 levels can be seen from D-60)
Bhava in which it is placed in D-60 chart: 10th house, So Native has to align himself with the parameters represented by this house to move forward on the path of enlightenment. This has to be done on SUB,SUB SUB and Supra Conscious level
( 3 levels can be seen from D-60)
Planet Joining this Atmakaraka in D-60: NA, if some planet is joining Atmakaraka over here, it will impart its qualities to Atmakaraka on SUB, SUB SUB and Supra Conscious level, not on materialistic level or conscious level. ( 3 levels can be seen from D-60)
In this manner analysis of Atmakaraka has to be done
Though Other D charts could also be included but as per D-9, D-1,D-3 and D-60 are the most important charts for the analysis of Atmakaraka.
Raja Yoga determination from Atmakaraka:
If Venus, mars and ketu are placed in 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th houses from the Atmakaraka. It indicates raja yoga.
I hope this would be of some help to you all.
