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.

some of the apparent causes of failure of predictions made by many. with an Estate to his share of the order rupees fifty lakhs.Not only did the prediction come true 100% but the writer was able to witness how the saying BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA worked. 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. this science is for those who implicitly believe in God and sayings like BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA and so on. both the student and the professional.

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 The reasons for these discrepancies are our Panchang compilers are still following the out-of-date siddhantas.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