The Horoscope Explained in kp

A horoscope (also called Chart or Kundali) is a map of heavens seen at a particular time from a particular place. The KP horoscope is slightly different from the traditional horoscope as it contains comparatively more information. A KP horoscope typically contains position of 12 planets (including Rahu, Ketu, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) and 12 houses. There are various ways in which a horoscope can be drawn. In India two most popular formats are „North Indian format‟ and „South Indian format‟.

The second box from the top left is fixed for Aries. This is the box where “I 001 -23-55” is written on the chart. From that box onwards, in the clockwise fashion, we can read other signs i.e. Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces respectively. So keeping this chart in mind, we can say that first house starts from Aries (because „I‟ is written in the box fixed for Aries) 1 degree, 23 minutes and 55 seconds. The second house starts from Taurus 3 degree 46 minutes 54 seconds. The starting position of second house is also ending position for first house. Third house starts from Taurus 29 degree 19 minutes 19 seconds. Fourth house starts from Gemini 23 degree 2 minute 49 seconds. As we see Ketu in Cancer 16 degree 24 minute 10 seconds between „IV‟ and ‟V‟ number, we can say that Ketu is in fourth house. Similarly, Saturn is between „VI‟ and „VII‟, so we can say that Saturn is in sixth house and so on.

This is the sequence used in Vimshottari Dasa. Rahu. Sun. Mars. the third sub lord will be of Sun and so on. first sub lord is the planet that owns the star and then it is followed by the remaining eight planets in Vimshottari Dasha planet sequence. What we are mostly cocerned about is the lord of that sub i.3333 = 1 degree 53 minutes 20 seconds Above can be summarized in a tabular format as follows - Sub Lord Ketu Venus Sun Moon Mars Rahu Jupiter Saturn Mercury TOTAL Sub Span 0°46'40" 2°13'20" 0°40' 1°6'40" 0°46'40" 2°0'0" 1°46'40" 2°6'40" 1°53'20" 13°20' . In each star. the first star of the zodiac. Jupiter. For example. Ketu is listed first here because Ketu owns Ashwini star. Moon.6666 = 0 degree 46 minutes 40 seconds Rahu = (18 / 120) X 800 = 120 = 2 degree 0 minutes 0 seconds Jupiter = (16 / 120) X 800 = 106.6666 = 2 degree 6 minutes 40 seconds Mercury = (17 / 120) X 800 = 113.6666 = 0 degree 46 minutes 40 seconds Venus = (20 / 120) X 800 = 133.

By a strong significator we mean that the planet has more chances of giving the result of the house than other significators We can tabulate house significators in our example chart as follows – House Level 1 (in Occupant's star) 1 2 3 4 5 Mercury. These are shadow planets and do not have any physical existance. Jupiter. Rahu Moon Sun. but even less prominently than Jupiter and Mercury. . Jupiter. In other words. Rahu also signifies 5. Rahu conjoins Mercury and Jupiter in Capricorn sign. Rahu signifies houses 5 and 10 by its own.Rahu & Ketu Rahu and Ketu are not planet in true sense. Planets conjoined or aspected by the above significators (level 1 to 4) are also the 5th level (weakest) significators. though Rahu acts an agent of Mercury. 6. Jupiter. Capricorn is the sign owned by Saturn. Sometimes 'Node act as an agent of planet planet X' is also written as 'Node represents planet X'. Moon. we need to understand the 'agent' nature of these two. Rahu 6 Ketu 7 8 9 10 Sun. 12 by being agent of Saturn. so it will also act as an agent to Saturn. we will take Mercury only otherwise we will be confused with too many houses signified.

The ruling planets in a star or sub of retrograde planets should be discarded from the list of RP. Method 1: Detrimental House Method The significators of houses detrimental to the aspect under consideration are weaker. if we have to find out. when you are judging particular aspect of life. house number 1 (12th to 2nd – negation of 2nd) 5 (12th to 6) and 9 (negation to 10th) are detrimental houses for the job. So. you have to check significators of the group of houses related to that aspect of life. Mars. Venus. and 9 are as follows – 1 – Mars 5 – Mercury. So. For example. you get many significators for judging an aspect of life. 10 and 11. Venus. Saturn. you need to find out significators of house number 2. When the person will pass through the dasa of significators of house 2. Saturn. Jupiter. So these are the planets that have the possibility of dropping from the significator list of job.

As we need to eliminate less powerful significators and keep more powerful significator. we have to judge 2. level 1 significators are powerful than level 2 significators as so on. In the example chart. we will left with the following – Sun. we need to find out the signifcators which are more powerful that others for that particular aspect of life. 7 and 11.

These three houses together will be called conductive house group (or simply house group) for marriage. The person will definitely marry. Method 3: Ruling Planets method Check the ruling planets for the time of judgment of the horoscope.11 for marriage. If the sublord of primary house under consideration is signifying house group related to the matter under consideration then the matter is going to fructify and the answer is positive. But. If sublord of 7th house is signifying either 7th or 2nd or 11th then the marriage is promised. 6th and 10th house being 12th from the mentioned house group are detrimental for marriage. if it sublord of primary house is signifying house group as well as detrimental houses then the native will get both the results in different dasa period. 1st. 7th house is the primary house for marriage.7.
