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.

based on which an opinion could be expressed on a horoscope. One has to read a horoscope impartially. I am also detailing the various items of information. First and foremost. in the first six slokas of his immortal astrological classic BRIHAT PARASHARA HORA. it is but natural they get dejected and go about asking professionals How do you read a Horoscope? I shall. who was only a babe in arms then.Not only did the prediction come true 100% but the writer was able to witness how the saying BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA worked.48 How Do You Read A Horoscope ? This note is dated October 31st. detail in this note. Credit goes to a Hindu Astrologer of Bombay who at the end of 19th Century. therefore. some of the apparent causes of failure of predictions made by many. The writer knew the native of that horoscope intimately. the reasons for which they are unable to detect. with an Estate to his share of the order rupees fifty lakhs. Maharshi Parashara says. Actually. as I have been able to guess from my experience. we should not doubt the Hand of God behind each horoscope. both the student and the professional. tables etc. 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. Just as we believe that every pot of milk we buy contains ghee. 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. must have implicit faith in God. had the rare courage to forecast beggary in the 50th year of a native. with an unbiased mind and the horoscope details should be approached . this science is for those who implicitly believe in God and sayings like BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA and so on.
Leave them alone. The reasons for these discrepancies are our Panchang compilers are still following the out-of-date siddhantas. which may not come within the rules. today. Maha Bharatha. for the planetary positions are periodically verified through large telescopes. Almost three decades ago. While noting down graha-sputa. there may be a freak case. I am afraid the majority of horoscopes that we are called upon to read nowadays are wrong in certain respects. one should have firm faith in Astrology and then only. Where a horoscope does not fit in for a native or where predictions go wrong. Sun or Moon has to be taken into consideration. I once came across a case where. proceed further. Manda Gathi or Ati Seegra Gathi or Sthambana (stationary). approach the matter in a cool and dispassionate manner. Vakyas and what not. I think. unless I have checked and recast the horoscope with reference to Raphael's Ephemeris for the Year of Birth and using Prof. Other phenomena to be noted are : whether any planet is in Ati Manda Gathi. Today. there no two Panchangas (almanac or ephemeris) which tally with each other. possibly the graha-sputa (planetary positions expressed in signs. Veda. I have observed that parallel aspects many a time broadly act like a conjunction in one sign.49 in an inquiring mood with utmost respect to the planets and not as if one is going to do a simple arithmetic calculation. BV Raman's Ayanamsa. during the major period of Mars. one in a thousand. I have never read or given an opinion on a horoscope. Like the Siamese Twins or Dionne Quintuplets. The majority of the horoscopes that we see today are those erected with reference to such unreliable panchangs. Jyotishacharya CG Rajan of Madras openly admitted that the Vakya method of compiling panchang cannot be relied upon. said to be the gist of destiny. Also. locate the error and rectify the horoscope. 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). 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. I also make a note if there was an eclipse (Lunar or Solar) on the preceding and following Full Moon or New Moon days. These have their own effects. if there are any strong parallel aspects between planets. which fooled many astrologers. Almost all the Maharshies of India including those who have compiled the Maha Vakya. So. as all the secrets of God's creation cannot be known to mankind. as they forecast many auspicious events whilst nothing . where there is no possibility of error. The grahana peeda for Rahu. lord of 5 and 10 standing in good position. almost all the top-ranking astrologers use Raphael's Ephemeris. subject to making due allowance for the difference in Ayanamsa. Ramayana. Now coming to the subject proper. My fear that the Indian panchangs are not accurate is so much that in the last 15 years.
50 like that happened and the reason I found was that the Lord of major period (Mars) was stationary on the day of birth.even there. There is thus the " equal . Navamsa chakra should be drawn as the astrologer can estimate the kshetra bala of a planet from this and Rasi chakra. Broadly speaking. Where there are two or planets. so far. 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. erect the Rasi Chakra placing (within the signs) the planets. we get the bhava arambhas. through whose grand-father's books I first started my study of astrology. 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. I changed over to this Ayanamsa some 20 years ago having read a number of articles by Prof. I have explained a method of rectification based on actual events in life and adjusting Garba Sista. Further. Bhava chakra is of pivotal importance. as they actually stand on the horizon. The reason for failure of a prediction need not always be due to the difference in ayanamsa. opposites of these being descendant and Nadir. This is called for only in cases where actual readings begin to fail and not in all cases as a rule. Rectification There is almost a fancy for many to rectify a horoscope. so that. BV Raman wherein he was reading the horoscopes of natives of different continents using his ayanamsa and tallying certain personal events in their lives. Ayanamsa The Ayanamsa used by me is that followed by my Guru. Whilst its importance is realised. from Rasi Chakra itself. Navamsa is compared to the roots of a tree. of more than ordinary importance. from these. a majority of horoscopes we now handle are correct only upto Rasi Chakra . place them in the order of their positions (ascending order by degrees). Prof BV Raman. Further. Hindu astrologers merely find out the ascending degree and also the 10th bhava madhya. with the possibilities of Mercury and Venus finding their way into different signs when checked-up. I have not. 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. Subha madhyama or papa madhyama occurs rather rarely and is certainly. Having ascertained the correct graha-sputa. Remember the adage GRAHANAAM AMSAKAM BALAM.
Similarly. Aspects In many cases. whereas the astrologer would be giving predictions based on one lordship only following the Bhava Chakra drawn by him in Hindu fashion. it is converted into Nirayana. the methods of casting a horoscope and compiling graha-sputa I follow. is exactly Western. aspects are being considered as if there's a wall at the end of . Quite possibly. thereafter. For instance. I cast the Bhava Chakra using Western methods and the Table of Houses published by Raphael's . 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. with the help of which. Dasamsa (profession) and any other chakra necessary in a particular case are drawn in traditional style. in many cases. thus having two lordships. in the first navamsa of Pisces and another in the last navamsa of Virgo is taken as full. suddenly spring up causing bewilderment both to the native and the astrologer. Having worked out this type of Bhava Chakra.51 house " system followed at least for every 3 houses put together. in many major periods and subperiods. The Rasi. the astrologer sees (a) whether a planet is in bhava sandhi or Rasi sandhi. I think this is one reason why. the entire chart is converted into Nirayana by deducting the Ayanamsa. the individual cusps are obtained for each latitude. The 7th house aspect between a planet say. 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. using the same ayanamsa used for conversion of graha-sputa of the horoscope. planets like Saturn who own two signs. 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. so that while giving predictions. It happens. aspects are not assessed in a realistic manner. To ensure greater mathematical accuracy. Thus. events not forecast. 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. In other words. for major part of India. this system is good enough for Equatorial Regions and say up to 15° on either side of the Equator. that planets like Sun and Moon will be owning say half of one house and half of another. this system may not be found wanting. This system is known as Placidian. may in fact be having lordship over 3 or 4 houses. In other words.

Dasa Varga Tabulation Ascertain from the Dasa Varga table. the strength of planets on the lines of VIMSOPAKBALA as enunciated by Maharshi Parashara in his BRIHAT PARASHARA HORA. Whilst there are actually lakhs of yogas. When it does occur in some one's Surya Dasa. is the minimum requirement.52 each sign. if the lord of a house is strongly placed and the house itself is either conjunct or aspected by a benefic. assuming both are weak also ? Such insignificant Yogas should be discounted. Yogas All the yogas operating on a horoscope.Appendix E. Sayanadi Avasthas Sayana Avasthas of the 9 planets and their effects (vide BRIAHT PARASHARA HORA) have to be found out and used in giving predictions concerning Major periods/Sub-periods. but no notice is taken of them. Aspects should be considered somewhat on the lines of the graph given below : though it may not be necessary to work out the aspect strength mathematically. so that the strength of a planet can be assessed and used for determining the quantum of auspicious/inauspicious effects. Not taking note of all yogas in a horoscope. SUN in NIDRA Avastha is said to cause Oedema. consideration of the 120 yogas given in Hora Ratna Maala . the yoga effects should also be considered at all stages. For instance. The same Kesari Yoga between Jupiter as Lord of 9th and Moon as Lord of Asdt and if both are strong. should be noted along with their effects and whenever a planet is considered. the . is also a reason for failure of predictions.

What is the use of Jupiter transiting your second house from Moon Sign if there are no bindus in that sign in Jupiter's Bhinna Ashta Varga ? There is a belief among learned astrologers that future indicated by the Ashtaka Varga methodology never fail. Further. Even the dates of important events like death of father/mother. Again. birth. Find out the constellation on which the 9 planets are standing and note down their effects. Seldom do we see horoscopes giving details of this type. but he is on his own star and in Ascendant. Nakshatra Chakra Almost the whole of Nadi Jyotisha is based on the constellation on which the planets are standing. 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. These effects are given in Nadi Jyotisha published by Meena or in the Novermber 1954 issue of Astrological Magazine. for the astrologer has not worked out these avasthas and hence. Ashtaka Varga is the method by which the day to day transit effects could be deduced. there is a difference when such Mercury is standing on REVATI. Mercury is in debilitation.
