The use of Navamsa in Horary Astrology

Acharya V.KUMAR

AIFAS, BANGALORE CHAPTER –II Introduction : The divine science of Astrology helps us in understanding the life in a right perspective by throwing light on ‘what is in store’ for our future .It also guides us in following the right direction for a successful completion of our ‘role play’ in the present incarnation . There are many methods employed for the purpose of divining by the learned ‘Daivagnas’. Out of these, Horary Astrology has been found to be an effective one in the hands of an adept practitioner of the science. Horary Astrology is employed both independently as well as in tandem with Natal Astrology depending upon the situation. In either case , the technique of use remains to be the same . Even a horary chart cast for the time of query is analysed as per the standard principles of natal astrology and inferences are drawn. Some specific questions on tracing a lost or stolen article including as to where the same is presently available, whether the same is retrievable or not, etc, questions on the health such as whether an hospitalized person would recover from the problem and return home or not, etc, success or failure of a venture, Birth of children including its sex and timing, Tracing unknown horoscopes , and so many other important issues like longevity, Marriage, Hidden treasures, return of a person on travel, etc., etc. are effectively answered through Horary Astrology for which some special horary techniques are also employed. In cases where no natal chart is available the prediction is made based on the observations in horary chart itself with a very high percentage of accuracy in prediction. However, if natal chart is available, the natal tendencies are also counter checked and then predictions are made. Many other details such as Dasa/ Bhukthi, disposition of planets, their strengths, indications through divisional charts , etc., are also fruitfully employed in analysis of both Horary and natal charts . There are many standard texts available on Horary Astrology such as Krishneeyam, Shatpanchashika, Prashna Gnaana, Daivagna Vallabha, Prashna Marga, Jinendra Maala, Pragnyaana Deepika, Aarya sapthasathi, Prashna Vidya, etc. This article deals with the application of one of the two most often used divisional charts in Horary Astrology i.e., Navamsha ( the other being Drekkana ) as dealt with in these classics.
