CHAPTER 1 PRASNA AND ITS UTILITY
Prasna is a very important part of astrology and is very useful. In some cases, only the prasna astrology is helpful. The Prasna means when we reply a question based on the horoscope prepared for the date and time when a querent has approached for astrological help. Generally, the prasna is made when the querent does not have a birth horoscope. It is very important that whenever a querent has approached for the first time, the time and date are noted. The place would be the location of the astrologer. In case of a telephonic or an e-mail query the place remains as the location of the querent For the researchers and advance learners noting down the time of the first query is helpful in timing of events and rectification of the birth charts. Even the astrological remedial measures prescribed according to the ascendant of the prasna have proved to be helpful in majority of the cases, wherever a response was available. The study of prasna is very useful : When the querent or the person about whom the prasna is being made does not have a birth chart. -To ascertain the ascendant when the ascendant is either in the ending degrees or the beginning of a new sign. In such cases, the ascendant rising in the prasna generally matches with the ascendant of the birth chart. The correctness of the ascendant of the birth chart is very important to figure out the true functional nature of the planets in a particular nativity. Not only the functional nature of planets plays a key role in the analysis of a chart

To predict success of nctv ventures. If the astrologer is not avail-able at the time of the approach made by the querent. The events are timed with the help of the operating planetary periods and the transit influences. Such a question should always be replied according to the birth chart of the querent. it so happens when a person is introduced to an astrologer.To predict recovery of stolen or misplaced items. both formative and separative. the essential predictive techniques of the Systems' Approach have been mentioned in this book so that the case studies included in this book are properly understood by the readers without referring to other books of the Systems' Approach. Even at the cost of some repetition. In case the querent does not have a birth chart. The only requirement for the success of the prasna astrology is that the querent approaches the astrologer without any appointment for the sole purpose of a query. Sometimes.To time return of missing persons. aspects. . Prasna brings out the main question(s) of the querent based on the conjunctions. then the time of approach should be noted and should be used for preparation of a birth chart.To time recovery of patients. then the time of the telephone call is noted for the prasna while the actual meeting for the consultation may take place at the appointed time. . . then he/ she should be asked to contact the astrologer after a week or ten days without fixing an appointment.2 Application of Prasna Astrology but also it is necessary for prescribing the astrological remedial measures.

All the conjunctions. the question may pertain to spouse or marital affairs or foreign visit or foreign stay. placements and the operating planetary periods are to be studied with reference to the ascendant and not treating the house pertaining to the relation about whom the question is made as an ascendant for replying the question. If the lord of the seventh house is afflicted. if one wants to know about the spouse then the influences on the seventh house are considered and the seventh house is not treated as the ascendant of the spouse. . If the lord of the fifth house is afflicted.P r a s n a and its Utilit♦~ ets.

When planets are indicating tragic happenings then people usually do not perform astral remedies to protect themselves against the expected losses and the weakness of Jupiter and the lord of the ninth house is always a contributing factor in this regard.

1.

Identify the malefic influence of the afflictor(s) on the most effective points of various houses and the weak planets. Identify the sub periods of the afflicting and afflicted planets. Examine the transit pace of slow moving or stationary functional malefic planets on the most effective points of various houses and the weak and afflicted planets. PRIME DETERMINANTS OF PRASNA

2. 3.

Afflicted Planets: Those planets that have close influence of the functional malefic planets (afflictors as mentioned above) either by conjunction or aspect are treated as afflicted planets. The close influence of the lord of the sixth house and Rahu causes diseases, disputes, losses through theft and fire and strained financial position. The close influence of the functional malefic planets ruling the eighth and twelfth houses and the planet Ketu gives chronic diseases, major setbacks, termination of relationships, accidents, obstructions and if the afflicted planet is weak and badly placed, the native suffers from long lived problems, fatal diseases and may have to undergo surgery, etc. Weak Planets: The weak planets are not able to protect their general significations and the significations of the houses containing their mooltrikona sign and therefore the nano e sutlers because of mal-functioning of health ruled by the weak planets. Needless to add that the badly placed planets are included in the weak planets.

afflicted planets as mentioned above and the sub periods of the planets placed in the malefic houses. These sub periods lead to the trends that continue throughout the sub periods and the trends can be reversed if the afflicted planets are strong and the following sub periods are of strong, well placed and unafflicted planets. Transit Influences: The study of transit influences on the Prasna. Sometimes, the problem is inordinately prolonged due to the close transit influence of slow moving planets of the prasna planets. If the afflicted planets of the prasna are strong, the problem ends after the transit impact is over. If the natal afflicted planets are weak and badly placed and the sub periods of the afflictors are in progress then the problem turns into constant problem. TIMING OF EVENTS The prasna may pertain to the significations ruled by the planets and the significations of the houses containing mooltrikona signs of the afflicted and/or badly placed planets. Timing of the results is worked out as per the strength of the operating or forthcoming well placed lords of the sub periods and or separation of the malefic transit afflictions. If the problem has been caused by the operating sub period then the span of the problem may be for a longer duration and can only be reversed in the sub period of a well placed strong functional benefic planet. If the problem has been caused by a transit malefic influence on a well placed or strong planet, the span of the problem may be when the causing transit malefic influence separates. For desired results, application of astrological remedial measures detailed in Chapter 8 are prescribed. If the native has a natal chart then the remedies are suggested as per the natal chart. If the native does not have a natal chart and he/she has contacted for the first time, the remedies are suggested as per the ascendant of the Prasna.

CHAPTER 8 THE APPLICATION OF ASTROLOGICAL REMEDIES
To help people come out of their problems the qucrents are advised appropriate astrological remedial measures. The problems in life are caused by weak planets and/or afflictions to them. Therefore, two way application of astral remedies is administered after diagnosing the problematic planetary influences in a chart. Firstly, the strength is provided to the weak functionally benefic planets. The strength can be provided by various methods, e.g. stones, colour therapy, KAVACH (the protective shield containing mystical numbers of the planets) in an auspicious time. Secondly, the malevolence of the functionally malefic planets is reduced by offering propitiatory charities concerning these planets. The two way application helps in reducing the impact of malefic planetary influences to a large extent. The preventive use of astral remedies is much more useful than the curative astral remedies. Generally, people resort to astral remedies in the end after trying all other therapies ignoring the distinct advantage of preventive diagnostic power of the astrological science. Needless to stress the benefit of preventive medicine/redressal measures as against those of the curative measures. For both - curative and preventive remedies - the judicious mixture of the following astral remedies is applied. COLOUR THERAPY: This is a very potent preventive remedy for epilepsy, mental retardation, psychic problems_ etc. and is practised through the use of favourable colours in the matters of dress and furnishings in one's living room.

VASTU: Again this is preventive as well as curative therapy for solving the problems in physical and spiritual areas. space and aura conducive to the main functionary.
