The Inquisitive Mind
It is human curiosity to attempt to know the unknown and in these attempts man is able to makeconsiderable progress in unraveling the secrets of nature. Astrology is also a branch of science where oneattempts to monitor the progress of the life pattern of an individual based on the position of the planetary clock at the time of the arrival of that individual into this world.Many techniques are in vogue to enable one to peep into the future. To start with, it may be tossing of a coin or asking one to hold one out of two fingers. Many times these techniques do give results miraculously.But unfortunately one is not able to understand and explain why and how they are working. For a seriousscientist,
the why and how
is important than the success of the method. The study and research on astrologygains important from this point of view. Otherwise, even a layman can get hold of any book on predictiveastrology containing some basic ground rules and pronounce spot predictions, irrespective of whether theycome true or not.They are many alternate methods in astrology for comprehending events. Some of these are:(i)
 
Transits: This is the most common in practice. Predictions are made depending on the transitpositions of the 9 planetary bodies with reference to the moon in the birth chart, the most commonpractice in India. Some look into this with reference to lagna also. Westerners do the same withreference to the sun-signs. Transits are also seen in a similar way with reference to many otherpoints in the birth chart.(ii)
 
Ashtaka vargas: This concept of assigning some benefic points for each of the seven planets incertain houses or bhavas relative to the positioning of that planet has been propounded by the seersof yore. Off late this has received a critical re-look by the current day astrologers. More number of points in a particular house, the more will be the beneficial effects while a planet is transitingthrough that house and vice-versa.(iii)
 
Progression: The movement of the signs and planets away from the positions they occupied in thebirth chart of an individual constitute the progressive chart. The relative positions of theprogressed planets and signs with respect to those in the birth chart form the basis of predictions.Again there are different schools of astrology practicing various calculations to arrive at theprogressions. These include, the sun cycle, moon cycle, annual cycle etc.(iv)
 
Prasna or horary: This system is based on predicting the happening of a particular event posed bythe questioner to the astrologer. Based on the time of query or a number given by the questioner,the ascendant is found out and the horary chart is cast with the planetary positions at the time of query and the predictions are doled out.(v)
 
Varshpahal: This is similar to the progression method. Based on the exact day and time of everyyear, when the sun returns to its natal position in the birth chart, predictions are assayed.(vi)
 
Jaimini: This school of predictions was supposed to have been enunciated by the sage Jaimini, inwhich variable “karakatwas” are assigned to different planets depending upon their relativelongitudes in a Rasi. The planet with maximum value becomes Atma karaka and the one withminimum value, the Daara karaka. This is in contrast to the fixed karakatwas of the planets asenvisaged by the sage Parasara, where the Ravi is always the Atma karaka and Sukra is always thedaara karaka etc.(vii)
 
Krishnamurthy: This is based on the concept of finding the star-lord, sub-lord and sub-sub lord of any planet or the bhava. Depending on their inter-relationships among themselves and also withrespect to the particular bhava(s) signifying the event, the astrologer assays the predictions.(viii)
 
Parasara in different manifestations: This is the most ancient and a thorough source of allastrological predictions in India. Almost all astrologers in the country are initiated into this sciencethrough Parasari and at one time or other take recourse to this system for predictions.In fact most of the students of astrology are familiar with something of everything and explain awaythe events by referring to any of the above-mentioned systems. The prevalence of so many predictive systems isthe result of failure on the part of any astrologer to base his predictions on a single sure-shot method. This is notto undermine any system or the astrologer. But it is indicative of one’s mind-set and more often than not,suggests an ambivalence attitude and a concerted effort on the part of the astrologer to explain each and everyquery instantaneously thus making the questioner satisfied. No rational explanation exists as to why a particular

system works in one case and the other in another case. Despite having reviewed all these methods for severalyears, it is still not possible to understand the rationale behind the adaptation of any particular system.We believe strongly that astrology in general cannot give direct answers to many queries that arefrequently addressed to it. It only suggests certain possibilities, which may or may not come true. One can onlysuspect something based on the natal chart on one side and the experience and knowledge of the astrologer onanother side in dealing with predictions.
 A definite answer for any query, in our opinion is worth suspecting.
 With a view to achieving a comprehensive understanding of the subject as a whole, in a more scientificway with less scope for surprise and superstition, we have collected and tried to analyse a large number of birthcharts along with the most significant events in the lives of the contemporary living natives, with whom we arefamiliar. The astrological guidelines given in the ancient texts to arrive at the conclusions are followed morerigorously than dealing with them superficially. It should be clearly understood that the entire ground rules andthe theories are available in our ancient texts. As the literal translation and application of the predictive portionsof the ancient texts could not give satisfactory results, the rules are reinterpreted and reframed in such a waythat they become easily comprehensible. The dasha periods were calculated based on the reinterpreted rules andan attempt has been made to explain why a particular dasha sequence lords are connected to an event occurredin the life of the native. A set of rules has emerged in the process. The rules, which are exclusive and notcommon to all the charts, were discarded. In this process it was found that the most of the rules given in manytraditional texts are more exceptions rather than the rules. What we are trying to do is to provide a direction,based on which, with a little experience, one may venture peeping into the future more confidently. We urgeupon the readers to carefully go through what is given here and extend the logic to other charts and otherproblems so that one may be able to make one’s own rules. After comprehending each event and the successfulexplanation based on the dasha sequence, then only one should venture into the field of prediction. There isnothing wrong if a prediction fails. But when it comes out successful, that is the time to consolidate the gainsand gain more confidence.

1. FUNDAMENTALS
Names of the planets (Grahas) and their symbols are given in Table 1-1. Table 1-2 gives thenomenclature used for zodiac signs, their relative positions in the cosmos. Each Rasi is ruled by a planet. EveryRasi has a unique nature. These are listed in Table 1-2. The different types of neighbourliness among the planetsare listed in the form of aspects in Table 1-3. Table 1-4 lists the 27 Nakshatras, their space co-ordinates, and theplanets ruling them. Table 1-5 gives the internal relationship between Rasis and Nakshatras.Table 1-1.
