If Moon is not visible on the day month has to start, it will be started from the next day only when moon becomes clearly visible. Understanding Place of Birth, Time Zone and Time Correction In astrology place of birth is equally important as date and time of birth.
This lesson tells you how the place of birth affects the calculations and how much precise we should be in specifying the place of birth - whether a street, a colony, a city or a country.
Some important formulas to compute distance are described when longitudes and latitudes are known. The lesson also explains importance of time zone and time correction. If it is day in India, it is night in America. So the effect of Sun is reversed. Similarly effect of other planets also change. Let us understand what is longitude or latitude; how we measure it and how much distance has how much effect in calculation of horoscopes.
This change in effect is more prominent longitudinally and is comparitively much less latitudinally e. But there is N. The equator represents zero degree latitude. North pole is N and South Pole is S. These are imaginary vertical lines parallel to the prime meridian, which pass through Greenwich where the British Royal Observatory is located. The prime meridian is at 00 longitude and we count E in East, to W in West.
Unlike parallel of latitude, all meridians are of equal length. Any place on earth can be uniquely assigned a longitude and latitude and any such coordinates define a single point on earth. Delhi has a longitude of 'E and latitude of 'N. Since earth is spherical, every degree of longitude does not represent equal distances.
Span of 1' of Longitude or Latitude:. Let us determine the distance represented by 1' of the longitude or latitude; that is, how much distance changes the coordinates by 1'. For all practical purposes, in India we can consider 1 mile, making a difference of 1' in longitude or latitude or combined difference of both.
From formula 1 and 2 it is obvious that the distance in North or South makes a variation in latitude, which is constant for all places on earth. However the longitude at least changes as much as latitude and the variation becomes more and more prominent as latitude increases.
This is obvious because of the fact that equator the circumference of earth is maximum, where as it reduces as latitude increases and rate of change of circumference also increases with the increase in latitude.
A table can be drawn for distance covered by 1' of longitude at different latitudes. For latitudes like in India a city, which has span of 40 Kms. This is particularly so in case of Delhi and Mumbai, where the city stretches to over 40 kms. For example Nangal in South-West of Delhi has coordinates 28 'N and 77 'E, whereas Vikas Kunj in North-East coordinates of 'N and 'E, thus reflecting a difference of 12' in longitude and 12' in latitude, with a total difference of 24'.
Similarly in Bombay Dahisar in North has coordinates 'N and 'E, whereas Colaba in South has coordinates 'N and 'E, making a difference of 22' in latitude and 2' in longitude, again making a total difference of 24'. However small cities are normally only half or even less than half the size of Delhi or Bombay. Towns are only a few kms. If a centre point is chosen then the difference does not exceed more than 1' or 2' in latitude and longitude combined.
For this reason for most of the towns and places, 1' accuracy in longitude or latitude is just sufficient, whereas in metropolitan cities a further breakup into small area is advisable. We find it is equivalent to s of time. And from a centre point it is only 50s. Thus when time of birth is accurate only to a minute level, taking the centre point of even the metros for longitude or latitude is not going to add much to the inaccuracy in results.
Computation of Distance:. We have seen above that there is a direct relationship between distance and the longitude or latitude. We can easily compute the areial distance between the two points on earth if we know their coordinates accurately.
For rough computations of distance, we may simply add up the difference of longitude and latitude and equate that to miles. Calculate the distance between Delhi and Mumbai approximately.
Distance between two points on the earth's surface having longitude and latitude L1, f1 and L2, f2 respectively can be computed accurately by first computing the angular distance between the following points by the following formula: Cos L1-L2.
The formula does not work well for very small values of d Example: Calculate the distance between Delhi and Mumbai, taking the following coordinates. Cos '' on solving, Cosd so, or. Some countries have a great longitudinal extent and so they adopt more than one standard time. For example USA has as many as 5 standard times. The earth has been divided into 24 time zones of one hour each. A few countries like India adopt a time zone in between the two, like 5 hour zone. Time Correction.
In countries with high latitudes, day duration changes drastically from say 6 hours in winters to 18 hours in summers. At poles this difference becomes so large that there is day for six months and night for six months.
The result is accurate up to a few Kms. The inaccuracy is mainly due to flatten- In Northern latitude May, June are longer, ing of the earth, which has been ignored in the whereas in Southern latitude December January are longer and they have summer at present formula.
In summer the sun rises very early. Longitude and Time To take the advantage of sun light, the clocks Sun is the best time-keeper throughout the are advanced by one hour during summer for world. It Sun regularly rises and sets every day. This advanced time is cast by the sun. All the places on a meridian called "summer time" or "day light saving have midday at the same moment. If the earth time". At some places the correction is done rotates from West to East, places East of for 2 hours and it is called as "double sumGreenwich are ahead of Greenwich time and mer time".
Similarly sometimes it is only half those in the West behind it. Since the earth an hour correction. Since this adjustment is rotates in 24 hours, every there is a only to save light, it is substracted before we do any astronomical calculation.
Standard Time. Local time of places which are on different meridians differ. In India there will be a time difference of about 1 hour and 45 minutes in the local time of Dwarka in Gujarat and Dibrugarh in Assam.
It will be difficult to prepare a time-table of trains which move from one corner to another. It is therefore necessary to adopt the local time of some central meridian of a country as the standard time for the country. In India 'E is treated as the standard meridian. The local time at this meridian is taken as the standard time for the whole country. For astrological purposes we need date, time and place of birth.
City of birth is normally sufficient as place of birth. Alongwith this one should know the standard time zone and the day light saving time correction to know exactly and correct the time of birth.
With the knowledge of coordinates we can even determine the distance between two points. Longitudinal distance play vital role in time gap compa red to latitude. Calculation of Sidereal Time and Ascendant In this lesson we are describing sidereal time and are listing the formulas to derive 10th house and ascendant degree accurately using sidereal time. Oral computation of ascendant is also described. Attention is drawn towards the common error committed by most of the fellow astrologers in the computation of ascendant or planet degrees.
In astrology, we are interested in motion of stars. We want to know the time period of earth when any star is observed to return to the same position. Such a clock is called a sidereal clock and its time, being regulated by stars is called sidereal time. There are During this period, the earth makes one revolution around the Sun. If we look from remote stars,. Each sidereal day is thus: GMT and Greenwich sidereal time coincide at one instant every year at the autumnal equinex around.
September Thereafter, the difference increases until half a year later it is 12 hours around March After one year, the times again coincide.
To compute sidereal time manually, please refer to Tables of Ascendants by N. The 10th House or MidHeaven: The point of intersection of the ecliptic of the given time with the meridian of the place is the tenth house for that moment.
If A is the sidereal time expressed in degrees and B is the tenth house, then tenth house can be computed as:. Approximate computation of Ascendant: The ascendant can also be computed approximately orally from date of time of birth. It does not vary much because of latitude or longitude, if local time is taken.
Take the date of birth and estimate the Sun degree, using the fact that it is 00 on 14th April and it advances by 10 everyday or 1 sign every month. The ascendant is the point of intersection of the ecliptic with the eastern horizon of the place. The value of the ascendant as calculated above is the sayan value.
Subtracting ayanamsa we get nirayana ascendant. The above formulae gives accurate values of ascendant. However, calculation of ascendant using tables gives rise to errors because of tables not available for the given place or for the given sidereal time. This error some times goes upto many minutes of arc. If the date of birth is December 13th, then as per table given Sun enters into Sagittarius on 15th Dec. Hence it is approximately on 28 0 scorpio on 13th December in any year.
Since at Sun rise, Sun is at the eastern horizon, so the Sun degree matches with the. Hence at Sun rise on 13th December any year, the ascendant is approximately Scorpio. After that it increases by the sign every 2 hours or 10 every 4 minutes. More accurately, it crosses six signs from Sun rise to Sun set and next six signs from Sun set to Sun rise.
So if time of birth is 1 PM and since sunrise is approximately at 7. Actual calculations show that ascendant on Traditionally, we calculate ascendant from Ishta Ghati using Palabha, Lankodaya, Udaymaan and Sun degrees for different signs. However because of better trignometric methods described above we are not putting it down here. To make the task easy, Panchangs give ending time of ascending signs on daily basis for a given place.
These tables can be directly used to get fairly correct ascendant sign. An interpolation of time Ascendant calculation for foreign births: This is mainly because they convert the time of birth to Indian Standard time. This way if a birth has taken place in the morning in New York, it. This is mainly because they convert the time of birth to Indian Standard Time.
Then when we calculate the horoscope, we find sun placed in the 7th house, whereas it should be in the ascendant by virtue of the definition of ascendant itself. The trignometric method above holds good for any date, time and place of birth. You do not have to change anything anywhere. However, if you want to compute ascendant orally, then also. It will give approximately correct value of ascendant for any longitude or latitude south latitude also.
To make the task further easy, take any Panchang which gives ending moment of signs for given local time of birth. Compute the local time by making oral correction for longitude to time zone and look into the table to get ascendant accurate to few degrees. This works because of the basic fact that ascendent varies only by a few degrees due to latitude.
Further note that to calculate planet positions using ephemeris or Panchangs, it is necessary to convert time from other time zone to IST since the Panchangs are giving values at IST only. This is the common mistake done by most of the astrologers that they convert time to IST for calculation of ascendant and take the time as it is for calculation of planet degrees.
So, remember: Do no convert time to IST for ascendant calculation of foreign births but convert the time to IST for planet degree calculations. Cast Your Horoscope The chart is pictorial representation of earth. The planets that revolve around earth are placed in the chart indicating their respective position. This lesson describes the method of calculation of planetry positions. Different system of presentation of charts is described so that one may cast his horoscope in the desired fashion.
Now we need to place the planets in the chart. To compute the planet degrees, we recommend the readers to follow Ephemeris by N. You can get these ephemeris from till date. You can also get advanced ephemeris by other authors for up to or However, if you want to compute horoscope for a date before or after then you can get it through a computer which are normally available from year 1 to year However for dates even beyond.
The ephemeris or Panchang is a collection of daily or weekly position of planet positions in a tabular form. The position for a given date and time can be obtained simply by taking average.
For more accuracy one can go to interpolaxtion techniques using more data available in the ephemeris. The deviations occur be-. The speed increase or decreases with time. If the speed of the planet is more in the beginning and less towards the end, the values obtained are slightly more than the actual longitudes because, in actual the planet moves a little more than what it moves on average.
The problem of speed of planet occurs mainly for Moon only because Moon plays the maximum Role in astrological computations. Compute planet degrees for Native born on We get the following degrees listed in the ephemeris.
Note that - Sign in the calculation indicates the backward or retrograde motion of the planet The planet degrees are given for 5hr 30min in the morning and time of birth is 11h 30 m.
So on average we find the planets movement as under. Mon x 6 hr 24 hr. Ura - ' x With this the Planet degrees at the time of birth becomes as under: Mon 0s' '. The above example shows the planet degree computation for places in India using Lahiri Ephemeris which are made for IST.
There is no time rectification required for places in India. The tables are to be used as such without correcting time to local time. If the place of birth is out of India, e.
New York is equivalent to Knowing the ascendant and the planet degrees, we can cast the horoscope. The chart that we draw is representation of earth. The planets revolve around earth.
For the pictorial representation of planets position around earth, we place them in the twelve divisions around earth. The pictorial representation of planets around earth is different at different places. Mainly it is represented in four ways. In the North Indian style ascendant is always fixed at the top and the zodiac moves anticlock wise. In western style the ascendant is fixed and placed on the left hand side whereas. Similarly if we are using tables made for GMT or any other time zone, we must convert time in IST to that time zone and then use such tables.
This is one of the common mistake made by most astrologers. Since this mistake does not make much difference in planet degrees, it gets overlooked. However, this does change the Moons position by few degrees and thus related computations, specially Dasa gets changed. A cross sign has been marked with planets those are retrograde similarly other marks like combustion or shifting of house in chalit can also be placed depending upon the. All the charts represent the same horoscope.
However, with practice, an astrologer gets accustomed. Calculation of House of a Planet It is very important to consider the house division for correct predictions. The planets show their behaviour according to the house they occupy.
This lesson describes the method to calculate the dimensions of the house and thus determine in which house the planet lies. It also describes the Western or K P Method of house division. The circle of the zodiac is divided into 12 divisions called houses. Each house does not necessarily extend to - it is either less or more. According to the Vedic astrology, ascendant is the mid point of the first house and mid heaven is the mid point of the tenth house.
A house starts approximately before the mid point and extends about beyond the mid point. The point at which the first house ends and next house starts is called "Bhava Sandhi" and the house extends from first Sandhi to the next.
However, the whole sign does not fall in one house. A house normally extends over two signs. Using this data, we shall now determine the span of a house and in which house a planet is posited. Indian system of House Division planet, depending upon its degree, falls in one sign and one house.
The house as visible in the Lagna chart is not the planet's actual house position. For any date, time and place, there are some stars rising in the eastern origin and some stars setting in the western horizon.
This is because of the earth's rotation around its axis. The eastern horizon is called the first house, whereas the western horizon is the Mid heaven.
The point above the head of the person is called the mid heaven or the 10th house. In Indian system of house division the rising point, the setting point and the mid heaven point are considered the centre of the 1st house, 7th house and 10th house respectively, whereas in the western system these are considered the starting points of the houses.
In astrology, we describe the planet's results in a particular house.
The planets are known to give results according to the house in which they live. The Lagna chart only tells us in which sign a planet is posited. It also tells us about the aspects of a planet on the other planets. However, it does not confirm the house in which a planet is situated. So we make another chart called Chalit, which gives us the information about the house in which a planet is posited. To draw the Chalit chart, determine the starting point of the twelve houses as described and if the planet degree lies in the extent of the house, then place the planet in that house.
Normally the house position derived in such a manner and the house occupied by the planet in the Lagna chart are same. But they To represent this situation, sometimes we place the planet in Bhava Sandhi. We draw a chart with twelve houses and twelve Bhava Sandhis. The planet which is in the same house in Lagna or as per house degrees, it is placed in the house; else it is placed in the Bhava Sandhi.
In the South Indian style where each box represents a sign not a house we mark the houses with degrees and place the planets and houses in the order of the degree they own. If a planet is beyond the limit of the house we take it in the next house.
Different methods are in vogue to determine the extent of the house. However, only two systems of house division are common. Indian system of house division: In this system ascendant and the mid heaven are calculated and the difference between them is divided into six equal parts. The mid heaven is the centre of 10th house. Adding the sixth part gives the ending of 10th house or starting of 11th house. Adding of sixth part again and again gives 11th house middle, 12th house beginning, 12th house middle, 1st house beginning and 1st house middle.
In a similar way adding to the ascendant successively the sixth part of the difference between 4th house and the ascendant, longitudes of the 2nd and 3rd houses are obtained. The remaining houses can be calculated by adding 6 signs to each of the opposite house. Compute house degrees for native born on From the previous lessons we have: Pisces ' Tenth house: Sagittarius ' Subtracting 10th house degree from ascendant We get.
Adding this to 10th house degree we get 10th house 11th house beginning 11th house middle 12th house beginning 12th house middle 1st house beginning 1st house middle. Similarly computing other house degrees we get: Western system or placidus system of house division: In this system, the star rising in the eastern horizon is on the ascendant.
It then passes over the 12th house, the 11th house, the 10th house etc. The ascendant and mid heaven are taken as start of the respective house and not the centre. The exact method of calculation of house degrees is difficult and tables are available to compute it on the basis of the sidereal time or the 10th house. Krishnamurthy System uses the above system of house division only. The values calculated for the model horoscope for the twelve cusps, as per placidus system, are: Cusp 1.
The planets Sun and Pluto to move to previous house as per Indian system of house division, because Sun is at Cap ' and the 11th house starts from Cap ', hence leaving Sun in the 10th house. Similarly Pluto is at Virgo ', 7th house starts from Virgo Hence Chalit chart is as shown. Mon Sat Dhan. If we do a comparative study we find the house of the planets in the given horoscope in Lagna, Chalit and cuspal charts as follows:.
In the Chalit Chakra, it is clear from the placement that Sun and Pluto to have moved out from their house to the previous house. Chalit Ind. Cusp Wes. From the table we notice that many planets change their cuspal position compared to Lagna chart whereas only a few change in the Chalit chart.
This is because in the cuspal chart ascendant degree is taken as the start of the house and not the middle. So the probability of change of house is increased. Secondly, in cusp more planets move to the previous house, again because the start of house in cusp is higher than in chalit.
It is very important to consider the house division for correct predictions. The behaviour is enhanced depending upon its strength, which is determined depending upon the sign or Nakshatra it occupies.
Hence use Lagna chart only to know the sign in which a planet is posited and use Chalit chart to confirm the house position of the planet.
Do not take the aspects as per the house or Lagna chart. Look at the degrees to determine if there is any aspect between two planets. Know Your Dasha In Astrology it is understood that at any point of time nature is governed by a planet and the position of that planet in the horoscope determines how the native will feel or behave.
This chapter details the calculation of the planet acting at any point of time and the period for which the planet rules. Any planet influences someone more than others at some point of time, than the other planet takes over and so on. Many Dasha systems have been described as many as But the most common and popular Dasha system is "Vimshottari".
As the name suggests, the complete cycle of Dasha is of years. All the nine planets take part in this system. The periods and the constellation assigned to them is as follows: Table Sun Krittika, U. Bhadrapada Saturn Pushya, Anuradha, U. Phalugni, Purva Ashada, Bharani. At the time of birth of the native, the constellation occupied by the Moon determines which planet will rule at that time. The fraction of the constellation balance at that time determines the "balance of Dasha", that is the time period for which the planet will rule after birth.
After the end of the ruling period of that planet, other planets rule one by one in the cyclic order as listed in table 1.
Let us understand it by an example. In the model horoscope in the previous issue, we have date of birth , time 4. On this date and time Moon's degree is Aries 90 , that is, it is in Ashwini Nakshatra.
Ashwini starts at 00 Aries and extends upto Of Aries. From table-I we find Ashwini is represented by Ketu having a period of 7 years.
Hence the native was born when ketu was ruling and it had a balance of Note that the period of 1 year 11 months 16 days is called the balance of 7 years of Ketu 20 years of Venus etc. Thus we compute the Dasha periods for nature as follows: Balance of Dasha: Thereafter, according to table 1, was under the influence of Venus for 20 years upto ; followed by Sun for 6 years upto , then by Moon for 10 years and so on.
No one will be satisfied if we tell him how he will go through his next 10 or 20 years in nut shell. He would want to know the effects of events in detail. So the above Dashas are further subdivided into sub periods or Antar Dashas.
During the planet's Dasha, Antar Dasha starts from planet itself, followed by the same sequence as given in table I. The period is also subdivided into the same fractions as assigned in table No.
In brief Sun rules for 6 years. After this will come Moon's sub period. Moon represents 10 years out of total span of years of Vimshottari dasa. Thus Moon will have sub period of. In a similar manner we can compute sub periods of all the planets while major influence of other planet is there. To compute the table 2, the basic formula is: Since 1 year contains 12 months, the above formula reduces to Sub period.
We multiply the two periods and put a decimal after one digit from the right. The whole number so obtained gives in the months for the Antar Dasha and the traditional part multiplied by 3 gives the number of days for of the sub period. Sub-Sub Periods: For further refining the results, we can divide the sub periods into sub-sub periods Pratyantar Dasha and sub-.
The formula for sub-sub period will be: Sub-sub period Pratyantar Dasha. While computing Dasha dates we add days to days, months to months and years to years.
If days are more than 30, we take a carry over of 1 to months and similarly if months are more than 12 we take a carry over of 1 to year. Here we do not take into account the actual number. It seems that we are taking a year as days only - 12 months x 30 days per month. However, this is a wrong understanding. Actually, we are dividing the year into months by multiplying by 12 and further converting into days by multiplying of We add up in the same manner. So it is not correct to add by taking actual days of months into consideration.
This simplicity of calculation takes the year as The actual dates computed by rigorous calculations by taking actual days of the months and by this simple method differ only by a few days; accurate practically for all astrological purposes.
Though mathematically it seems to be viable to go even further down the step, however these, calculation is highly susceptible to errors because of inherent errors in time of birth and we do not suggest at all to go beyond 5 levels. Even 5th level is normally inaccurate enough to make it absurd. Whereas the entire Pran Dasha of Sun is only x 4 hours, the difference of 33 hours further gets amplified to hours, that is 5 days if the Moon is in the constellation of Venus at the time of birth.
For a thought: There are many inherent problems with Dasha calculation. Dasha changes very fast with the absolute value of Moon's position. It does not depend upon any other value and doubt in the value of Ayanamsa makes it almost useless. Secondly, there are so many Dasha systems and it is not known which Dasha should be applied when. Thirdly, the periods assigned to different planets seem to be quite adhoc and no reasoning is available anywhere.
This makes the Dasha system very doubtful and the transit of planets seems to give a much better method of timing an event. Yet, it is difficult to deny the system of Dasha. Often it seems to be giving results with undoubted accuracy. The Art of Prediction By now we have learnt how to cast horoscope.
Even the best casting is useless if we can not use it for prediction. In this lesson we describe how to start predicting a horoscope. Rashi sign. Twelve Rashis are spread over twelve houses; on an average one Rashi occupies one house. However, Rashi is exactly , whereas a house may vary in size and the starting of house may fall at any Rashi at any point.
It is equivalent to placing one circle over the other, both having same dimensions, but any one point on circumference of one circle can be made to align with any point on circumference of the other circle. The rest of the circle gets automatically placed. Similarly in a horoscope we determine the Lagna first house position and place the Rashi circle over the rest of the twelve houses.
After fixing the signs over houses we place the planets in the various houses. Since The planets possess some intrinsic properties and when mixed with the colour of sign and house they occupy, they change their colour, leading to different behaviour, at different time of births. Study of this change in behaviour of the planets is basic astrology.
There are three basic reasons why planets behave differently, like 1. Once the planet's behaviour is ascertained because of its placement, the results are changed with time, depending upon Dasha operating at that time. Dasha tells us. To understand what the horoscope has in store for a native, let us study how the planets have co-relation with life.
We give below the basic nature of planets and houses and also what they signify. Signification of Planets Sun: Sun is the king, soul, father, will power, life, glory, health, sovereignty and clothes.
Its colour is pink or red. It has anger but momentary. Its element is gold and gem ruby. East is represented by Sun.

It represents death, politics, gas, aeroplanes poverty, servants, electronics and legs. Its colour is blue, element iron, gem blue saphire and direction is west.
Rahu is an expansionist planet and represents smoke, mental disturbance, loss, theft, death of a family member. It also represents sudden gain through lottery, gambling or speculation. Its colour is black, element mixed metal and gem gomed. It has tail but no head and represents broken relationships, changing events, accidents. It represents electronics, brown colour.
Gem is cat's eye. It specifically signifies the head. This house is also called 'Dhan' house and deals with money matters, one's deposits, income tax, customs, computers. It represents one's family and face, speech, food habits and left eye. Called 'Bhratra' house, this is the house of brothers and sisters, signifies courage, boldness, short journeys and throat. One is made singer by this house only. It is also called 'Matra Bhava'.
It represents chest, particularly lungs. This house is. It indicates stomach and gives professions of teacher, principal and gynaecologist. This house is called 'Ripu Bhava', that is house of enemies. It governs digestive system, quarrels court and jobs done by hand, like typing.
Also called 'Kalatra Bhava', it represents wife, business partner, marriage, business or employment in a private firm. It governs sexual organs and diseases thereof. Called 'Ayusthan' it represents death, reasons of death, underground wealth, historical things and monuments.
It represents accidents, parental property, life insurance, mining and anus. Called house of luck and religion, it represents pilgrimage, higher studies like doctorate, long journeys, languages like Sanskrit, Roman and Hebrew. It also indicates grand parents and mental aptitude towards Yoga and Sadhana. It represents hips. This house is called 'Karma Sthana' and represents the acts one does. It signifies father, government, politics, management. It governs knees and defines the profession of a person.
Taurus Scorpio. The house of loss and expenses is called 'Vyaya Sthana' and covers bad habits, hospital, jail, long journeys and quests. It also indicates export and import, also feet. They show different relationships with different planets. Planets own certain signs. Sun and Moon own one sign and other planets own two signs each. Rahu - Ketu, being pseudo planets, do not own any sign. Planets get exalted or become powerful at certain points and get debilitated exactly 0 away.
For any ascendant, some planets become Yogakaraka or Maraka, depending upon the house they own. This is one of the most important factor in prediction. A Yogakaraka planet shows good results in its Dasha or Antar Dasha. Stones are suggested only for a Yogakaraka planet. If a planet is benefic only then it is good to make it strong ; else it will harm the native.
Planets which are Yogakaraka for each ascendant is given in the table below. Benefics - Lords of 1,5,9 Yogakaraka and lords of 4, 7, 10, if natural malefic. Malefics Lords of 3,6, Maraka 11and lords of 4,7,10, if natural benefic Neutral Lord of 2,8, In the next lesson we shall study how to use these data for predictions. Art of Prediction -2 To predict horoscope, consider the houses one by one and see the planets placed in the house, the planets aspecting it, the placement of its lord and the planets aspecting it, or associated with the lord.
Amalgamation of the effects of these units give, us the complete prediction about the horoscope. Lagna is Leo. So the native can be identified by a lion. The lion is bold by nature and has confidence to win over anyone. It is normally passive and becomes active only when required. It does not harm until disturbed.
It normally has a robust health. It is aspected by Saturn from 4th house, which makes the native hard working. The lord Sun is placed in 4th house in Scorpio, a friend's house, but with Saturn and Rahu, which are its enemies. It gives native health problems, like blood pressure. Now consider 2nd house. Dhanasthan or house of.
It indicates native will acquire wealth by own earnings. Jupiter in 2nd house also gives soft and impressive voice. But there is aspect of Mars on 2nd house. So sometimes words are lost while speaking. This aspect also gives a tendency that people misunderstand or misinterpret his words. The lord Mercury is placed in 5th house, so the native is a professional, who earns by his knowledge.
Look at 3rd house. Venus is there in 3rd house - its own house. Mars is having 8th aspect on 3rd house. Also Moon has 7th aspect on this house.
A benefic planet in 3rd house gives younger sister and good relationship with co-borns. Mars' aspect disturbs writing power and Moon's aspect gives good throat and voice. It also gives lot of short journeys in life. This situation is further aggravated by the presence of 4th lord Mars in 8th house.
So many planets in 4th house ensures comforts at home, but the malefics indicate one does not pay attention to home. It also indicates bad health of mother.
Saturn and Rahu indicate good education for the native. It is also in exchange Yoga with Jupiter from 2nd house. This gives very good calculation power. It also ensures son to the native. This also gives knowledge of astrology and computers to the native. This gives native a working wife.
Saturn gives a wife with fair complexion belonging to an orthodox family. It also indicates business partnerships that will not be smooth.
Presence of Mars indicates many accidents in one's life, but Jupiter saves from all such accidents. He will also be benefitted from insurance. He will get property from his parents. Mars in 8th gives medium longevity, but Jupiter stretches it. The benefic planets in the house of religion also make the native religious.
He also undertakes long travel because of these two planets. The Karmasthana 10th house is occupied by Ketu and has aspect of Jupiter from 2nd house and Sun and Saturn from 4th house. Jupiter's aspect makes the native a businessman, Ketu brings him into computers, Saturn associates him with industry and Sun ensures that he is at the top of affairs in.
Since the house is ruled by Mercury and its lord is in 5th house aspecting it, the native earns by intellect, but aspect of Mars from 8th house reduces profits into losses too. So the over all success is not at par with the work done by the native. Export and import will give him gains.
It also ensures many foreign tours for the native. This way we see that to analyse the horoscope we interpret the house one by one, or interpret the house whose subject matter we want to know.
First we see what are the planets posited in that house. Then see the aspects over these planets, or this house and then see where the lord of the concerned house. Proper amalgamation of the properties and a little practice of linking things together gives you the best of prediction. The special effects in the horoscope can be seen by looking at the various Yogas formed in the horoscope. The powerful Yogas take away the attention from other aspects and they become more effective in life.
For example, in this horoscope Jupiter and Mercury are in exchange Yoga, that is, Jupiter is in the house of Mercury and Mercury in the house of Jupiter. This exchange gives the native a strong liking for calculation and astrology, since the exchange is between 2nd and 5th houses.
It increases the intelligence level and gives him a professional career. Similarly Moon is pressed between Mars and Ketu from both the sides, forming Durdhura Yoga, which gives native wealth, fame and power. Absence of any strong Dhana Yoga makes him a man of normal means. Individually the Yogas sometimes reverse the effects of the planets completely.
More and more knowledge of Yogas makes a man better and better astrologer. In the next lesson we shall see how to time the events in ones life by using Dasha and transits.
Art of Prediction-3 To time the events in ones life, we use Dasha and transits. Dasha tells which planet is affecting the native at a particular time, whereas transit tells us which natal planet is vibrating because of the transiting planet.
A combined result of Dasha and transit gives us the behaviour of the native at a particular time. Date of Birth Lagna Kundli is as given. The native has the following Dashas:
