Secrets of Kerala Astrology
Introduction Sukra Kerala Rahasya by Sukracharya contains 423 slokas. Without disturbing, as far as possible, the chapters and the order of slokas have been re-arranged subject-wise, to make this publication useful as a source of reference and to enable the reader to quickly spot out what he wants. The original book has no introduction whatsoever, except that, at the end of each sloka, the author says Iti Kerala Nischayaha meaning this is the decision of Kerala Astrologers. This denotes that the author is giving out certain decisions agreed to by the Kerala astrologers. Perhaps, the title given to the book Kerala Rahasya is suggestive of the fact that the author has chosen to reveal certain secrets of Kerala astrology which are not available in other systems.
2 Almost all the slokas are on the lines of Yogas, very much on the lines of those found in the great book Sarwartha Chintamani of ri Venkatesa Daivagnya, though in substance these two books deal on separate points in the same subject. There are a number of good points in the book which are not found in others and some of them are indeed valuable Yogas on various important aspects of human life, which will assist students as well as professionals in delineating predictions correctly. No sloka has been omitted barring a few which seemed repetitive. There are a few slokas in this book which may not be understood easily. The author himself has not understood some. A literal translation of these, however, appears in the appropriate places and it is hoped that there may be personalities with higher knowledge who may know their real usage or import. Foreign readers and astrologers following Western System of Astrology may kindly note that all the Yogas (planetary mappings) given in this book are to be applied to the horoscopes cast in the Hindu fashion. How to convert a Western horoscope to a Hindu horoscope has been explained briefly on page 14 of Ashta Varga Phala & Ashta Varga Dasa by the author.

Cancellation of debilitation effects
• If in the sign in which a debilitated planet is standing, an exalted planet is also standing in conjunction, Maharshi Vasishta and Maharshi Parashara are of the view that the malefic nature of the debilitated planet will vanish.
Note : Assuming Venus and Mercury are conjunct in Pisces, the debilitation effects of Mercury here may safely be ignore for the purposes of prediction. • If the dispositor or the lord of the exaltation sign of the planet in debilitation, stands in quadrant/trine from Ascendant, the malefic nature of the planet in debilitation will vanish.

Credit goes to a Hindu Astrologer of Bombay who at the end of 19th Century. this science is for those who implicitly believe in God and sayings like BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA and so on. it is but natural they get dejected and go about asking professionals How do you read a Horoscope? I shall. in the first six slokas of his immortal astrological classic BRIHAT PARASHARA HORA. both the student and the professional. Actually. with an unbiased mind and the horoscope details should be approached . the reasons for which they are unable to detect. therefore. as I have been able to guess from my experience. this is NOT a science for those who (a) learn astrology with a view to minting money with the help of planets and thus change their present plight or (b) want to test the correctness or (c) desire to change the status of a horoscope by knowing its weakness and perform shanties to overcome such weakness and thus jump over the purpose of creation or (d) desire to go against the Will of God. some of the apparent causes of failure of predictions made by many.Not only did the prediction come true 100% but the writer was able to witness how the saying BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA worked. had the rare courage to forecast beggary in the 50th year of a native. 1961* Because many a prediction made by students of Astrology fail (the most recent and glaring one being that of election of President John F Kennedy for one reason or another.

This note is dated October 31st. must have implicit faith in God. First and foremost. detail in this note. One has to read a horoscope impartially.
Jyotishacharya CG Rajan of Madras openly admitted that the Vakya method of compiling panchang cannot be relied upon. proceed further. there may be a freak case. Almost three decades ago. if there are any strong parallel aspects between planets. Veda. I once came across a case where. I have observed that parallel aspects many a time broadly act like a conjunction in one sign. approach the matter in a cool and dispassionate manner. Other phenomena to be noted are : whether any planet is in Ati Manda Gathi. where there is no possibility of error. While noting down graha-sputa. Also. which fooled many astrologers. The reasons for these discrepancies are our Panchang compilers are still following the out-of-date siddhantas. said to be the gist of destiny. Vakyas and what not. degrees and minutes) given in most Indian horoscopes do not tally with the actual positions occupied by planets on date of birth when verified with the positions given in standard ephemeris (converted to Nirayana). I also make a note if there was an eclipse (Lunar or Solar) on the preceding and following Full Moon or New Moon days. I have never read or given an opinion on a horoscope. there no two Panchangas (almanac or ephemeris) which tally with each other. Leave them alone. So. Almost all the Maharshies of India including those who have compiled the Maha Vakya. Vedanta and Gita have certified and assured us that Astrology is the LIGHT with which one can read the AKSHARA MALIKA (garland of letters) written by Lord Brahma on the forehead of everyone. These have their own effects. Like the Siamese Twins or Dionne Quintuplets. Now coming to the subject proper.49 in an inquiring mood with utmost respect to the planets and not as if one is going to do a simple arithmetic calculation. as they forecast many auspicious events whilst nothing . Where a horoscope does not fit in for a native or where predictions go wrong. My fear that the Indian panchangs are not accurate is so much that in the last 15 years. Maha Bharatha. The majority of the horoscopes that we see today are those erected with reference to such unreliable panchangs. unless I have checked and recast the horoscope with reference to Raphael's Ephemeris for the Year of Birth and using Prof. lord of 5 and 10 standing in good position. BV Raman's Ayanamsa. Today. The grahana peeda for Rahu. Manda Gathi or Ati Seegra Gathi or Sthambana (stationary). possibly the graha-sputa (planetary positions expressed in signs. Ramayana. for the planetary positions are periodically verified through large telescopes. one should have firm faith in Astrology and then only. which may not come within the rules. today. I think. almost all the top-ranking astrologers use Raphael's Ephemeris. during the major period of Mars. locate the error and rectify the horoscope. I am afraid the majority of horoscopes that we are called upon to read nowadays are wrong in certain respects. one in a thousand. Sun or Moon has to be taken into consideration. subject to making due allowance for the difference in Ayanamsa. as all the secrets of God's creation cannot be known to mankind.
so far.even there. erect the Rasi Chakra placing (within the signs) the planets. we get the bhava arambhas. Having ascertained the correct graha-sputa. Hindu astrologers merely find out the ascending degree and also the 10th bhava madhya. Subha madhyama or papa madhyama occurs rather rarely and is certainly. It may be due to wrong time of birth or not reading a horoscope with correct graha-sputa or failure to do rectification of a horoscope where needed. Broadly speaking. Bhava chakra is of pivotal importance. Ayanamsa The Ayanamsa used by me is that followed by my Guru. This is called for only in cases where actual readings begin to fail and not in all cases as a rule. as they actually stand on the horizon. subha madhyama for a planet enables it to confer benefic effects more than what the present astrologers estimate. with the possibilities of Mercury and Venus finding their way into different signs when checked-up. Prof BV Raman. I have not. of more than ordinary importance. BV Raman wherein he was reading the horoscopes of natives of different continents using his ayanamsa and tallying certain personal events in their lives.50 like that happened and the reason I found was that the Lord of major period (Mars) was stationary on the day of birth. from these. I have explained a method of rectification based on actual events in life and adjusting Garba Sista. Further. Whilst its importance is realised. so that. Navamsa is compared to the roots of a tree. a majority of horoscopes we now handle are correct only upto Rasi Chakra . opposites of these being descendant and Nadir. The reason for failure of a prediction need not always be due to the difference in ayanamsa. place them in the order of their positions (ascending order by degrees). I changed over to this Ayanamsa some 20 years ago having read a number of articles by Prof. you could make out whether a planet is in subha madhya or papa madhya (hemmed in between benefics/malefics) and the proximity to one another or a malefic. found any reason to forsake this ayanamsa. Further. There is thus the " equal . from Rasi Chakra itself. Rectification There is almost a fancy for many to rectify a horoscope. Where there are two or planets. through whose grand-father's books I first started my study of astrology. Remember the adage GRAHANAAM AMSAKAM BALAM. Navamsa chakra should be drawn as the astrologer can estimate the kshetra bala of a planet from this and Rasi chakra.
This system is known as Placidian. Thus. using the same ayanamsa used for conversion of graha-sputa of the horoscope. Dasamsa (profession) and any other chakra necessary in a particular case are drawn in traditional style. may in fact be having lordship over 3 or 4 houses. It happens. In other words. The Bhava Chakra (Nirayana) alone is drawn by me in circular fashion (in Western fashion) showing the Bhava Arambha of each house (in place of the cusp points) and planets are inserted in the same manner as if it were a Western Horoscope. thereafter. so that while giving predictions. In other words. The 7th house aspect between a planet say. the astrologer sees (a) whether a planet is in bhava sandhi or Rasi sandhi. in many cases. The astrologer having a look at the traditional Bhava Chakra (in the absence of Bhava arambhas) reckons lordship over 2 houses and bases his predictions on that. I think this is one reason why. To ensure greater mathematical accuracy. Having worked out this type of Bhava Chakra. planets like Saturn who own two signs. For instance. this system is good enough for Equatorial Regions and say up to 15° on either side of the Equator. suddenly spring up causing bewilderment both to the native and the astrologer. Aspects In many cases. for major part of India. in many major periods and subperiods. an aspect between a planet in the last navamsa of Pisces and another planet in the first navamsa of Libra is ignored for the latter happens to be in the 8th sign from Pisces. events not forecast. is exactly Western. aspects are being considered as if there's a wall at the end of .51 house " system followed at least for every 3 houses put together. Similarly. subha/papa graha madhya (b) proximity to malefic/benefic if any in same sign (c) the gravity of combustion if any or planetary battle and (d) lordship of a planet in exact proportion. that planets like Sun and Moon will be owning say half of one house and half of another. thus having two lordships. the methods of casting a horoscope and compiling graha-sputa I follow. I cast the Bhava Chakra using Western methods and the Table of Houses published by Raphael's . with the help of which. the individual cusps are obtained for each latitude. in the first navamsa of Pisces and another in the last navamsa of Virgo is taken as full. Quite possibly. it is converted into Nirayana. aspects are not assessed in a realistic manner. The Rasi. the entire chart is converted into Nirayana by deducting the Ayanamsa. Navamsa. whereas the astrologer would be giving predictions based on one lordship only following the Bhava Chakra drawn by him in Hindu fashion. this system may not be found wanting.

In brief. two or three yogas are likely to be found in a number of horoscopes. The same Kesari Yoga between Jupiter as Lord of 9th and Moon as Lord of Asdt and if both are strong. For instance.

Another sloka by Maharshies say that it is only through the Ashtaka Varga that the impact of a malefic yoga on a horoscope or the goodness of an auspicious yoga could be be assessed or weighed. for the astrologer has not worked out these avasthas and hence.
