faculty of man but it is an appeal to his hidden powers and
capacities. Astrological predictions canoot be simply based
upon .trict hypothetical principles or vague guesses but a
certain amount of intuitive must be brought to bear
upon sucb attempts. The various rules given for future

Astrology relies more upon the skill and intuitive capacities

Necessity for the Study of Astrology
Various theories have been set up to discover the influences
of planets upon the terrestrial phenomena. While some people
admit the intimate relationship tbat exists betwixt tbe move
ments of tbose "mysterious intelligences" in tbe beavens and
tbe fortunes and misfortunes of men, rise and fall of Empires,
ebb and flow of human passions and the regeneration and
degeneration of Arts, Sciences, Literature and Philosophy,
there are others who always deny tbe existence of any sort of
connection between tbe stars 'and the inhabitants of this eartb.
This attitude is due to the fact that they do not approach the
subject with an unbiassed and unprejudiced mind. Dispassio#
nate enquiry alone can enable one to appreciate the truth
~ h i n d any branch of knowledge. In any field of enquiry.
the student will find it useful to remember. it is a major error
of the intellect to attempt to oppose prejudices based on
Q priori arguments to tbe evidence afforded by facts. The fiDal
test of a tbeory is that it should work satisfactorily in prac
tice. Tbis is the test by which astrological theory sbould be

perfection in India tbousands of years ago.
While the modern scientists acknowledge astronomy. some
of them sneer at astrology and reject it with' charg-
ing it with the dogmatism of charlatanry aDd superstition.
They preaca frankness and research as fair and reasonable;
but sbow the greatest bigotry, when the subject of astrology is
taken up or introduced.
Astrology is the science which comprises the foretelling of
tbe regular movements of the planets, the fortunes and mis-
fortunes of men, fates of nations. inundations, eartnquakes.
plagues. volcanic eruptions. pestilences, and other incidents
relating to terrestrial phenomena. In Sanskrit it is called
Bora Sastra meaning the science that treats of Time. It il
also called Jyolisha or the .!"lJwledge of Lighl from Jyoti or
Light which is the root-cause for aU known creation. Accord-
ing to the Western interpretations. Astrology is derived from
Asler-a star, and Logos-reason or logic.
No sane brain could ever deny the infiuence of planets
upon man and how they affect , deter and facilitate bis future
career on the three planes of human existence, vit., pbysical
characteristics, mental peculiarities and spiritual aspirations.
That a certain subtle power , derived from nature. pervades
the entire universe, and the earth we inbabit is also subject to
this mysterious and subtle power 1s evident to aU. The various
elements, encompassing all matter, arc altered by tbe motions
of tbis ethereal power. The acts of creation (sr/.Jhll), protec-
tion (slhltil and destruction (Joyal are embedded in the womb
of the All-Powerful Time and these variations are brought
about as a consequence of this subtle power. The Sun by his

earth eIercises much influence on it and as she wanes and
WaIes rivers swell. the tides of the sea are ruled and the plants
and animals aOected.
The Sun as the central figure predominates over the entire
arrangement of the celestial system and the other planets aod
stars arc directed by his rays.
'rhus, it invariably follows , that all bodies in nature,
wbether animate or inanimate, are subject to tbe motions of
the celestial bodies. Not only those that are already in exis-
tence are influenced by tbe movements and configurations of
planets. but also the impregnations and growth and develop-
ments of tbe seeds from which all bodies emanate are moulded
by the quantity and quality of these infiuences 'at the time of
impregnati on.
Astrology must!.iJ ..
Ie interprets what it conceives
to be the future of man as moulded by his previous Karma
and indicated by the planetary positions at the time of birth.
The greatest men of the world believed in and practised
astrology. Dante declared it to be " the highest. tbe noblest
and without defect". Kepler. Bacon, Pythogoras and Demo-
crates were masters in astrology. The ancient Hebrews called
the astrologer Asphe meaning " the mouthpiece of the star".
It is recorded that Newton was attracted to the study of
mathematics and astronomy by tbe contemplation of an
astrological figure of the beavens

Hindu. Predictive AslrololY
When one bas acquired a thorough knowledge of the ever-
lasting and ever-changing influences of the stars, he will be
able to prognosticate correctly the mental and physical
qualities of any man and the fortunes and misfortunes that
await him and his progress in the world whose actual moment
of birth is accurately known.
By thus knowing the future correctly, man can so create
an environment tbat, he can cope with the adverse periods of
his life and alleviate the evils, indicated by the planets to a
great extent. The human will is free to a certain extent and
advance knowledge of the future can enable one to mitigate
many evils. There is a proverb: "Fools obey planets while
wise men Control them."
The Zodiac and the Solar System
The zodiac is a broad band or belt in the heavens extend-
ing 9 degrees 00 each side of the ecliptic. The ~ l i p t i e or the
path of the Sun passes exactly through the centre of the wdiac
longitudinally. It is an imaginary circle of 360 degrees and
tbe ancients divided this zodiac into 12 equal parts of 30
'degrees each, each being named after the constellation.
Though each of these signs differs considerably from the
other, yet there is a sort of continuity tbrough all the twelve.
The quality of each sign is oat equally spread, but every
degree io a sign has its own peculiar qualities. The zodiac,
known as the Bhachakra in Sanskrit , revolves on its axis once
in a day from east to west.
The planetary orbs. which the ancients recognised as
baving the most powerful inOueoces on our earth are seven,
leaving aside the shadowy planets, Rahu and Ketu, and the
so called newly di scovered planets Uranus, Neptune and
Pluto whicb Hindu astrology does Dot recognise.
As inhabitants of the earlh, we are concerned with tbe
inHuences of these celestial bodies on our planet. All the
planets perform the double function of not only revolving on
their own axes once in a day (from west to east) but also
round the Sun, According to Surytlsiddhanltl, Saturn is the

Hindu Predictive AtJtoIOl)'
most distant planet Crom tbe earth. Jupiter. Mars, the SUD.
Venus, Mercury and tbe MOOD come next in the order of their
distance from tbe terrestrial globe. Thus wt' see that the
nearest planet to our own orb is the MOOD. The velocity of
each planet diminishes as its distance from the earth increases.
The SUD moves at the rate of rougbly 1 degree of tbis
Circle of Light (zodiac) in one day composed of 24 hours or
boras, and takes 365 days and 6 hours to complete a circuit
round the zodiac. The MOOD takes the average rate of 41
ghatis or I hour and 48 minutts to traverse througb a degree
of tbis space. Mars moves at the average rate of 45 days for
30 degrees 0" takes Ii days per degree. Mercury moves at
the averagc rate of 11 degrees a day; but on account of his
closenel! to the Sun and due to tbe solar influence, he is very
unsteady. He completes his average rUn in 27 days. He gets
into forward aDd backward motions from tbe SUD and attain a
wbat is called astam or combustion. He bariUy takel a day
to move in each degree, but mOVes on more rapidly for some
time. geta in front of the Sun and tben begins to move slowly
and goes backwards from the Sun. These two states of
combunion, viz., moving forwards and backwards
from tbe position of the SUD, are designated in the astro-
nomical works .s p,agaslhambha and
jndicatina towards the East of Sun, and pasclrod indi-
catiDg towards the West of tbe Suo. In these dou.ble motion.
of backwards and forward., Mercury never gets away more
tban 28 degree. in either direction (rom tbe Sun. Though the
time aUotted to Jupiter i. one year in eacb sign of 30 degrees,

.Iowest moving planet of the lot. He talces about 2\ years or
30 month. to move in a sign of 30 degrees and thus he talces
1 month to move in a degree. Rahu and Ketu wbich revolve
in tbe Apo$O'YO order, i.e., from east to west, take 18 montbs
to travel through each sign of the zodiac.
All the planets, excepting the Sun, tbe MOOD and tbe
shadowy planets Rabu and Ketu, undergo retrogression or
10kra and tbi s will be fully explained in a future chapter.
This much of tbe explanation of the solar system seems to be
to facilitate comprehension of the astrological terms
described in tbe subsequent chapters. For further details
about tbe astronomical peculiarities. I must refer tbe readers

The zodiac is a circle of light and consequently it knows
no beginning or end. In order to measure the di stance an
astronomical point (end of the constellation of Revati) is
established which is called the first point of Aries. The zodiac
i. marked by 27 constellations or naksbatras. The first point of
tbe Aswini, tbe first constellation, synchronises with tbe first
point of Aries, wbich is the starting point of tbe fixed zodiac.
Eacb Dabbatra measures 13 20' of arc and consists or four
quarters or padas of JO 20' eacb. Thus 2l constellations or

Peculiarities of the Zadica. Signa
Eacb zodiacal sign has certain peculiarities attributed to it
by ancient Maharishis. For instance, each sign represents
some element in nature, such as fire, air, earth and water.
Moveable signs ( Chara RasiV are Aries, Cancer. Libra
and Capricorn. Taurus, Leo. Scorpio and Aquarius
signs (Sthira Rasis). Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces
are said to be common signs (Dwiswobhara Rasis). Aries,
Gemini, Lro, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius are odd signs.
Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces are
classified as even signs. All odd signs are cruel mascu-
line and all even signs are mild and feminine. Again, we have
an account of fiery signs (Agflltat wa Rasis). lliz., Aries, Leo
and Sagittarius. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are earthy
signs (Bhutatlm Rasis). Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are
(Vayulatwa Ras;s). And finally Ca'ncer, Scorpio
and Pisces are classified as watery signs (Ja/atatwa Rasls).
Cancer, Leo, Virgo. Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius are signs
of long ascension and tbose of short ascension are Capricorn,
Aquarius. Pisccs, Aries, Taurus aDd GemiDi.- Cancer, Scor-
pio and Pisct:s are fruitful and Gcmini. Leo and Virgo are
barren. Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Aquarius

A8trological Terminology
The allocation of sign rulersbip does not appear to be
arbitrary. For instance, the Suo rules Leo. If we replace
the SUD by the earth, then we find that the nearest planet to
the Earth, y/z., the Moon, rules the nearest sign to Leo. Viz. ,

Planetary Strengths and Avasthaa
Planetary conjunctions play an important part in tbe
dtermination of tbe various sources of strength and weak-
ness of the planets in a horoscope. Conjunction of good
planets always produces beneficial results while the reverse
holds good when malefic planets join together.
Planets on account of their incessant movements get into
eertain states of existence called avas/has which are ten in
number. Each avastha produces its own results. In tbe

The Shadbalas or Six Sources of Strength and Weakness
of Plane/S.- Each planet is supposed to get a particular shale
of strength when it occupies a particular position. The source
of strength can be numerically measured by a certain unit
called Rupa. (For full details. see my book Graha and Bhava
Balas.) There are six kinds of strength considered in Indian

aspect to wbich each planet is subjected to by the other. The
houses of aspect are given in the next chapter. Aspects of
benefics give full Drugbala or strength, and aspects of male6cs
take away the Orugbala
6. Naisa,glkabala.-This 'means permanent or
strength. Each planet is supposed to produce a particular
measure of strength permanently irrespective of its positioD.
The Sun, tbe Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Mercury. Mars and
s..turn are strong in order. The SUD is the most powerful and
Saturn is the least powerful.
Tbe .trengths of planets can be numerically calculated as
per my book G,aAa and Blul'D &11l3.
Hindu Method of Casting the Horoscope
The horoscope is simply a scbeme or a plan representing
an accurate pict ure o f the beavens, of the positions of tbe
planets and the stars for the time at wh ich a child is born or
at any particular moment. The map of tbe heavens cont ain-
ing the 12 divisions is drawn in either a square or circular
form. J give below the Inost common kinds of diagrams now
in vogue in India and abroad.
For tbe benefit of my Western readers. and such Indian
readers who h'avc no accesS to almanacs. I have also explained
tbe method of casting the boroscope according to the Western
system and its reduction to tbe Hindu, in the next chapter.
The following are some of tbe maps used by different
countries :-

Hindu Predictive: Astrology
For all practical purposes almanacs publisbed by competent
Hindu astroDomers, giving the planetary positions, can be
used by beginners, and after acquiring a thorough familiarity
with the various rules fOf the computation of horoscopes on
the basis of such almanacs, the student may refer to modern
epbemerides for greater accuracy.
Western Couatries
Find out the date of birth in the almanac in the particular
year and write on a sheet of paper all tbe details given for
that day. In most of tbe almanacs, the positions of the
planets 8rc given in Nakshatra Padas (Constellational
quarters) and by merely copying them, one would be able to
mark the Rasi (zodiacal) and Navomsa (one-ninth division)

it must be taken as belonging to the previous day as among
the Hindus a day is reckoned from sunrise to sunrise.
Ascertain how many hours after sunrise tbe birlh has occurred -
and convert this into ghatis.
In the almanac. if there are any planets marked on the
day of birth and if the ghat is given against eacb or
any of them are below the time of birth, reproduce them
as they are; otbcrwise trace back and find out tbe positions
of planets nearest to the date of birth. For the Moon
some calculations are necessary. Find out the constellation
on the day of birth which can be readily sl!e n in the
almanac and note down its duration. If it be the one that
ends on the same day. then add to this duration, tbe number
of ghatis and vighatis obtained by subtracting from 60. the
extent of the preceding asterism on the previous day. The
sum represents the entire duration of the constellation in
question. One-fourth of this gives the duration of a quarter
or pada. Add birth time to tbe duration of the constellation
on the previous day. This gives bow much of time has
elapsed in the constellation at Ihe time of birth. Dividing
this by the duration of each quarter, we get the particular
quarter of the constellation in which the Moon is.
In case the constellation be tbe one that ends on the next
day, the duration of the asterism on tbe day of and that
on the next day must be obtained tbus :
Let us assume tbat tbe sunrise on the day of birth of the
following illustrative boroscope is at 5-35 a.m. Tbe birth has
taken place at 5-35 p.m. Deducting sunrise from birth time
(5-35 p.m. == 17 hours, 35 minutes) we get 12 hours. This
converted ioto gbatis at 2, gbatis per one bour gives 30
ghatis as the time of birtb after sunrise. From the almanac,
3. Hindu Predictive Amolol1
we fi nd tha t on the day of birth the constellation RohiDi ruled
for 21-59 ghatis . Subtract fr om 60 ghatis. the number of
ghatis and vigbatis at which the Moon Jeft tbe previous
constellation. Add to this, the number of gbatis and " ighatis
when this constellation terminates , the next day. The total
durati on of the constellation is obtained . Subtract fr om tbe
time o f biub (in gbatis) the t ime when the Moon left tbe
previous a sterism. Tbe time elapsed from the beginning of
the constellation to the moment of the birth is obtained. Now
it will be easy to find io wbat quarter the Moon is placed.
The foll owing illustration enableS the student to grasp the
principles enumerated above easily.

Ta ke the Sun. He is in the second quarter of Aslesha .

(one quarter is equal to 31/3 degrees of ecliptic arc); 8 )( 4 = 32.
Add tbe two quarters already passed by the planet in Aslesha.
32 plus 2 - 34. Since 9 padas make one Rasi, di vide tbis by
9 ; 34/9 _ 3 7/ 9. The remainder is 7. That is, the Sun passed
three signs from Aries and is in the fourth sign, namely
Cancer. All tbis troubl e can be saved by referring to the
Hindu Predictive As1toiolY
Table of constellations given on page 14. The SUD. as we
know. is in the 2nd pad a of Aslesha. FroID the table, it will
be seen that the last quarter of Puoarvasu, the four quarter.
<.I f Pushyami and the four quarters of Aslesha constitute tbe
sign Cancer. As the Sun is still in tbe 2nd pada of Aslesba.
we can readily place him in Cancer. Similarly, fix all the
other planets in their respective signs.
Ascendant or tbe Lagna
The next step after fixing the planets is the correct determi-
nation of Lagoa or the Ascendant. The earth is egS-shaped
and rotstes once a day on its altis aDd thus all the zodiacal
signs are invariably "clt posed" to the sol ar inlluence. As tbe
earth is egg-shaped, certain signs arc exposed to a greater
extent of time than others; The 12 solar months are named
after the 12 signs of the zodiac. On tbe first day of Aries the
first degree of that particular sign ri ses in the eastern horizon
at sunrise a nd the rema ining signs gradually ascend till tbe
next day a t sunrise when the sunrise takes place in tbe second
degree of Aries, The sunrise takes place in the last degree of
the 7.odiac on tbe 30th day of Pisces, when the solar year
c'nds. Thus the LagRa or the Ascendant is that particular
point of the ecliptic considered with reference to the particular
horizon. Therefore, certain periods of time are allotted to
each of the zodiacal signs to rise, the duration of such periods
depending upon the latitude o f the place. The duration of
the signs varies in accordance with the del!ree of the latitude
of the pla(.'(: and the student is referred to Appendi x B at the
end of the 'book by means of which the rising periods of the
.. arious aigns for the different degrecs of latitude can easily
be ascertained.
Hindu Method or Casting the Horoscope
'The degree and the sign in which the Sun rises will be
the ascendant a t the particular time. The solar date of birth
is readily found out in the almanac. fn the illust ration given,
tbe solar date is the 24th of Cancer. The rising sign in that
montb will be Cancer itself. But the Sun rises in it on the
first day in the first degree of CaRcer. The per son was born
on thc 24th even ing and therefore the Sun has passed 23
degrees of Cancer nnd rose on that morn ing in the 24tb
Therefore the Sun on the day of birth was in Cancer 24
degrees. Time of birth is 30 ghatis. Catlctr extends for
about 531 ghatis (see Appendix B) at Lat. 13 N. There-
fore eacb degree requires 5-31 x 60/30 - i fU' vighatis to rise.

Each sign is composed of 30 degrees. In the illustration.
Capricorn is tbe ascendant. Its duration is 3122/ 3 ' vighatis

are to 30 degrees , so art /38 1/3 vighatis to the degrees

(Bhavamadhya, etc.) may be made to my A Manual
of Hindu AstroloRY. For ordinary purposes, it may be sup-
posed that Bhavs extends J 5 degrees on either side of the
mid-point . In the illust rati on, J3 Capricorn is the
Bhavamaclhya of fin;t house and it roughly extends from
29 degrees of Sagittarius t o 28 degrees of Capricorn. The
second from 28 degrees Capricorn and so on.

Western Method of Horoscope Casting
and Its Reduction to the Hindu
A short account of the difference eXisting between the
Hindu and Western zodiacs seems necessary before explaining
tbe method involved in the erection of the heavenly map
acconJ ing to the Western system and its reduction to the
Hindu zodiac. The Hindu astronomers of the Nirnyana
school trace their observations of planet s to the fixed zod iac
while the Western ast ronomers. belonging to the Sayan a
system, conside r the moving zodi ac commencing from the
ever-shifting vernal equinox. The exact period when boltt
the zodiacs were it: the first point is doubted by a number of
astronomers a nd accordingly the Ayanamsa-precessional
distance-or the inc rement between the beginning of the fixed
and moveable zodiacs. varies from 19 to 23 degrees. This
Ayanamsa is reckoned roughl y at 50 ' /3 seconds of arc per
year (see Appendix A).
Erect the boroscope as per rules given below. Subtract
the Ayanamsa for the year of birth from sucb positions and
tbe Hindu horoscope is obtained. In one year the Ayana msa
gains by.50 1/3 seconds of arc so that preceSSion for odd days
may conveniently be omitted.
In an - ephemeris (Rapbael's or Die Deut sche' s or any
Itandard one) the longitudes of planets a re calcu la tt:d daily

for Greenwich Mean Noon. Therefore Local Mean Time oftbc
place of birth must be turned into its equivalent Greenwich
Time. Add to the Local Mean Time of birth. if the birthplace
is west of Greenwich, four minutes for every degree of
longitude. Subtract four minutes from the Local Mean Time
of birth for every degree of longitude. if the birthplace is
east of Greenwich. Havi ng converted this Local Mean Time
of birth in to Greenwich Mean Time the planetary longitudes
can be calculated fr om the ephemeris easily. To fin d out tbe
e"act longitude of the planet for a given time the difference
of longi tude between the previous noon (if bi rth is a.m.) and
the noon of tbe birtliday or tbe difference between the noon
of the day (if birtb is p.m.) and the next noon must be noted.
(In sOlne publications the daily movemer.ts of planets will be
given in a separate section) . This difference is the motion of
tbe planet in 24 hours . Then the following rule mu st be
applied: A.s U hours arc to tfl e daily motion so is the difference
between the given t ime and noon to the motion required.

is governed by the lord of tbe Rasi; the second by the lord of

Take Aries: tbe first dre.k:kaoa is governed by Mars, its lord;
the second is r uled by the Suo, t he lord of the 5tb from Aries;
aDd the third Jupiter rules over. as be is the lord of the 9th

governed by J upiter, lord of the ninth from Aries. Now divide : . ;
Taurus i nto nine equal divi sions . We have left tbe counting
of tbe navamsa at the 9th from Aries, viz., Sagittarius. There-

On Birth Verification and Rectif.ic8.tion
The importance of tbe exact moment of birth need not be
stressed. And onc of tbe toughest jobs of an astrologer is to
find the exact moment of birth before venturing to make any
predictions. In most cases, the precise lime of birth will not
have been recorded for it is natural tbat considerable time will
lravc elapsed from the moment of birth to that of recording it.
While tbe importance of the correct instant is so much. we
cannot lay any hard and fast rules which will cnable us to
find out this exact instant. It is accepted by eminent astro-
logers tbat the time of birth means the time of the fir st cry of
tbe child which generally accompanies the first breath.
According to Varabamibira, there is an intimate connec-
tion existing between the planetary positions at conception
and those at birth. Based on this, the Wester'ners have
developed their so-called "Prenatal Epoch Theory". The
Moon is the ,ource-of impregnation. Therefore it is poss ible
to rectify the time of birth by adjusting the Moon and ascen-
dant birth and at conu plion. Varabamibira observes tbus
in StaDza 26 of Cba ter IV of Brihat Jatoko Eng. Trans. by
B. uryanaraln ao) :
"Find the number of Dwadasamsas occupied by lhe Moon
at the time of conception. Note the zodiacal sign whose name
I the Dwadasamsa bears. Count from the next sign as many
I signs' as the number of Dwadasam5as by which the Moon may

bave advanced in any particular sign. When the Moon comes
to such last sign, the birth of tbe chi ld will occur ...
The author has beeo investigating into this theory and
proposes to place before the learned readers, the fruit s of bis
labours in due course. This branch of astrology does not
come within tbe scope of a beginner or an amateur. And birtb
times can be rectified only by men of experience by a conside-
ration of pronounced life events.
The followi ng are some of the rules which are generally
employed by astrologers:-
J. Multiply the time of birtb in by 4 and divide
the product by 9. The remainder must give the ruling constel-
lati on when counted from Aswini, Makoa or Moola.

means Pusbyami. In such a case adjust the remainder in such
a way as to give tbe Jaoma Nakshatra and rectify the time of
birth accordingly.

The position of the Moon at birth is important in the
calculation of tbe Dasas. Every constellation Cover$ l.lj

consideration tbe balance (in ghatis) of the ruli ng constel-
an The Moon is in the first quarter of
Mrigasira in the example horoscope given in Chapter IX.
Therefore, Mars' Dasa rules the native at birth. If the Moon
were in the very beginning of Mrigasira, Mars would control
tbe native for the full period of 7 years assigned to bim. But
8 gbatis and I vigbati have already passed io Mrigasira out of
the total duration of 57/16 gbatis which means the corres
ponding period must be deducted out of the Dasa of Mars.
By ascertaining tbe duration of the naksbatra or constel
lation in question, we say in this case-if 57f16 gbatis give 7
years, what will 8 1/60 ghatis give;

Similar reBulh .::an also be obtained by knowing the exact
degree in which the Moon is liiluated.
To gip, an expmel, . Take a birth when tbe MOOD is in
Taurus 2S deges. 10 minutes. Reference to the table on
page 14 shows that the sign Taurus is composed of the last
tbree parts of Krittika. (our of Rohini and tbe first two of
Mrigasira. Each quarter is equal to 3} degrees in extent.
Therefore. 3 of Krittika aod 4 of Robioi = 23 degrees, 20
minutes ; and 2S degrees, '10 minutes minus 23 degrees, 20
minutes = 1 degree, SO mioutes should be accounted for a.
Moon baving passed in Mrigasira at tbe time of birth. We
know that Mrigasira is ruled by Mars whose period is seven
y ~ a r s . Each asteri sm being 13 degrees and 20 minutes we
must find out what will be tbe period for 1 degree and SO
13 degru.J an.d 20 min.utes : 1 degree and 150 mlnute.J : 11
months /6 @ys.- This period has expired before birth and
from the time of birth only the balance of (1 years-II months
and 16 days) = 6-0-14 days of Mars Dasa will go to the benefit
of the native.
After finding out tbe Dasa. the subperiods in each of the
particular period must be determined :

sub-periods (Bbuktis) can be independent ly calculated.
Muhiply tbe Dumber of years of the Oasa period of the
planet by the number of the years of the Dasa period of tbe
planet whose sub period is desi red. Then cutting ofT the last
di git of the product, multiply it by 3 and keep that figure as
days, the ot her figures in the product will be months. Suppose
we ... 4nt to find the sub-period of tbe Sun in the major period
of 'I' e nus. Mul tipl y the Oasa term of Venus 20 years by that
of the Sun 6 years, i.e., 20x6 -= 120 - 12 months. Thereisa
zero for the last digit of tbe product and therefore the sub-

Find the sub-period of Rahu ill Jupittr 's major period - -
Rahu' s period being 18 years and that of Jupiter 16years,
18 x 16 = 288 = 28 months a nd 24 days.
The Bhukti s are further sub-divided into still more minute
divisions called the antarams or inter-periods ; these into
antarantarams and so on, till swara or the peri od necessary
for the inhaling and the exhaling of breath is reached. Never-

On Aspects
Tbe power of a planet to produce good or inDict evil. on
an individual, is modified to a great extent by tile natural
sympathies or antipathies of the aspecting and the aspected
According to Hind", astrology, all aspe.cts are impersonal
and the aspects are counted feom sign to sign. An aspect is
good or bad according to tbe relation between the aspecting
and the aspected planet. All the planets aspect tbe -3rd and
10th houses from their location with a quarter sight; the 5th
and 9tb houses with half a sight : tbe 4th and 8th houses with
tbreequarter of a sight and the 7th bouse with a full sight.
Saturn, Jupiter and r.brs have special aspects. Saturn power
fully aspects 3rd and 10th houses; Jupiter, 5th and 9th
houses; and 4th and hOl!.ses.
It will bc seeD that laimini and Tajak writers consider an
altogetber different method of reading aspects. Beginners
should never mix the one system with the otber. According
to laimini all moveable signs aspect all fixed signs, except
the adjacent ones. Similarly. all filled signs aspect all move-
able signs except the ones . . Common signs aspect
each otber. 10 this book we tire devoting ourselves exclusively
to Parasara.

The aspect is signified "by referring to the number 01 signs
from the significator which the aspectiog planet may hold.
Thus if the Sun is in Cancer and Saturn is in Taurus, we say
tbat tbe Sun is in the third from Saturn and consequcDtI;
receives tbe aspect (ltd house aspect) of Saturn.
The opposition aspect becomes extremely good when it is
produced by Jupiter and the Moon . It is held to be good
when benc6es aspect each olher (7th bouse aspect) . A planet,
aspecting its own house, whether by tbe 7tb hOll se aspect or
special aspect, will naturally increase the signification of that
said that Mars aspects tbe 4th 8!ld 8th hQuses in
addition 10 the usual 7th bouse aspect . . The !ltb house aspect
is a square aspect and sometimes tbis is evil and sometimes
beneficial. For iostance, if Mars, as lord or the 4th and the
9th houses (sec Chapter on Key Planets) in which circum
stance he gets special qualification as a Yogokaraka to
produce good, aspects by the 4th house aspect a friendly
planet, the significations of the aspected planet and the house
are greatly enhanced. The same principle applies even in
case: of the 8tb house aspect.
Jupiter aspects the 5th and 9th houses which. in Western
astrology, are aspects. The results according to
the naturalaDd temporal i:ligoities of the aspecting and the
aspected bodies. Jupiter'l aspect over any planet al a natural
benefic is of weigbty importance apart from tbe fact tbat be
may be temporarily iIIdisposed.
S'i,D aspects tbe 3td and the 10th housci. As a natural
malefic. his aspects arc bad. But the aspects produce lood
in case Saturn acquires beoeficence by temporal situation.
Here some observations on aspects have to be made. The
euct quantum of an aspect cast by an aspect ins body on an
aspected body can be mathematically mealured by following
On ASpects 61
the method given in Graha alld Bhava Dalas. But for the.
general purposes of predication, until the reader is quite
familiar with astrologi cal mathematics, it will be in order if
full aspects (7th house or 180) for all planets and special
aspects of Saturn. Iupiter and Man are taken into account.
In the chart illustrated on page 42 the following aspects
are present: Saturn aspects the Sun (Jrd house), Jupiter
(7th house) and the ascendant (10th bouse). The Moon
aspects Jupiter (7th house). Mars. Mercury and Venus
aspect the ascendant. Mars also aspects Jupiter (4th house),
and Rahu (11th house). Jupiter aspects Rallu (5tb house),
Saturn and the Moon (7th house) and the Sun (9th house) .
According to Western astrology, aspects are reckoned
from mutual longitudinal distance$ (: f planets. When one
planet is at a certain Dumber of degrees away from another
body. they are said to be in aspect.
The following are the major aspects >-
Conj unction:-Two heavenly bodies in the same longitude.
The distance between the two bodies is
Trine: do,
Square: do.
SeItile : do.
Paralie''declination : When two bodies have the same
declination (Kraoli).
Tbe effect of an aspect is felt even if tbe planets are not
cuctly in the mutual distances mentioned above. Therefore
a so-called orb of aspect-and this var ies in each aspect-is
allowed. The orbs of aspects are:

The influence of an aspect (e.g., sextile) starts when tbe
planets are 53 away from each otber, gradually increase
(applying) and it will be maximum at 60; it tben decreases
(separating) when the effect is almost nil at 67.
Take for instance Saturn and the SUD in the example
chart. The angular distance between the two planets is
49. The sex tile aspect ceases at 67. Therefore there is no
aspect between them. Take again Saturn and Mercury. The
mutual distance is 13
It is a square aspect (separating)
between Saturn and Mercury. There are also other variations
of aspects brought ahout by two planets remaining in tbe
same sign and Dot in conjunction but another planet occuPY-
iog a trine in respect of the two. Readers will do well to
refer to aoy telttbook 00 Westero astrology for more details.
The good or bad nature of aspects depends upon the angle
of aspects. Foe ins.tance, opposition (1110") and square (90)
are always held to be evil irrespective of the nature of the
planels forming the aspects. The trine and selttile are gene-
rally held to be good.
Such a classification of aspects is erroneous. If for
instance Jupiter is in Cancer and Mars in Aries, Western
astrologers hold this bad. Commonsense suggesls this is an
exceJlent aspect and Hindu astrology say:; so. Why should a
square be always bad unless planets involved are
malefics 1 I am not'convinced of the soundness of this view.
The reader need not worry with these controversial points.
But he may take it that aspects as considered by tbe Hindu
system have a sound and scientific basis.
Ayurdaya or Longevity
Many advantages can be derived by ascertalOlng before-
hand, the presence or otberwise, of combinations, indicAting
early death of the child We know very well that despite tbe
utmost care on the part of the parents, diseases of a dangerous
nature and violent accidents do happen to children
their lives in jeopardy. Astrology can forewarn the parents
of such times of danger to their children. Astrologers, not
the rank and file, those really well-versed in the science. do
hold that they can afford the physician a certain prognosis.
An astrologer's work in this respect is priceless in value when
compared to that of the doctor.
After the horoscope is cast, the primary question is
necessarily tbe probable duration of life. For, wben a child
bas a poor longevity to its credit, it would be unnecessary to
ellamine the other favourabl e combinations. However promi
sing the horoscope may be, it will be futile 10 study the
future. unless long life is assured.
Tbe span of human life can be brought under four impor
tant divisions. They are:
J. Balarishta (in fant mortality).- The combinations of
planets rendering the child die before it is 8 years.
2. AlpaJu (short lifd .-Death between 8 and 32 years .

4. Pumavu Cfulllifel.-From 75 to 120.
Some authors hold that Madhyayu extends from 32 to 70
and Purnayu extends to 100 years But this classifi cation
does not seem to have won general acceptance as tbe nalural
span of life is 120 years according to Vimshottari Dasa and
consequently. Purnayu must extend to this limit.
I shall take the reader tbrough all these various divisions
in separate paragraphs. First, the nature of the horoscope,

After ascertaining to which class a particular horoscope
belongs, the marakas or the death-inDicting planets must be
determined and the death predicted under the Dasas of such
Marakas or Death inflicting Planets
Marakas arc planets possessed orlhc power of infl icting
death. Death generally occurs during the periods and sub
periods of such planets. Suppose a horoscope indicates
midd le life or Madhyayu. whereas t he Dasa of a most powerful
rnaraka comes into operation after 80 years . In such a
circumstance tbe period of a planet, no matter even if it is
les s malicious in causing death which comes within the
ma1timuID number of years allotted for must be
considc-rcd as bringing ahout death, in preference to tbe most
malicious one. Ascertain beforehand, whether a horoscope
indicates short. middle or long life; det ermine the maraka
planets and the times when their influences will cQme to
The 8th house from Lagoa (ascendant) and the 8th from
that, i,e., the 3rd from Lagna arc termed bouses of life. The
7th house ano the 2nd bouse are called houses of deat!!.., The
2nd ho-;s;-isal;aysstroo'ger in deatb tban tbe 7th.
Planets wbo occupy the 2nd are stronger tban the planets wbo
own it, in tending to cause death aod the planets who arc in
association with tbe lord of the 2nd are tbe most powerful in
causing death.
Thus the lords of the 2nd and tbe 7th, tbeir occupants
and the planets who are in conjunction with them arc tbe
maraka planets. If marakas cannot be found out of these
three, then the planet in conjunction witrdhc lord of the 12th,

even if it is a benefic, causts death in his Dasa (period), in tbe

12th) does not come, tben one most powerful among the lords
of tbe 3rd, 6th and 8tb becomes maraka. If the Sun and
SlIkea (Venus) or lords of the 2nd and 7th get Kefldradhipalya
(lordship of quadrant)-tbey arc sure 10 become ma ra kas.
Summari sing tbe above, death will be caused by:
I. Planets who occupy the 2nd and 7th houses.
2. PlanelS who afe lords of the 2nd and 7tb houses.
3. Planets who are not owners of the 2nd and the 7th
houses, and who are not occupying tbose bouses but wbo join
with the lords of tbose bouses, I.e., tbe 2nd and tbe 7th.
4. If tbe periods of tbe planets occupying or owning
deatb bouses do Dot come in time, tben death may occur in
tbe Dasa of planets who arc not Yogakaraka3 but who
become evil and conjoin lords of tbe houses of death.
5. Lords of the 3rd and the 8th arc also probable causers
of death if death docs not occur in tbe Oasas, etc., mentioned
in iteD\ 4.
6. If tbe Dasa of a death-inflicting planet docs not at all
come into operation, then the most malicious planetS in the
horoscope will cause dellth.
Saturo. inclined to produce evil by his conjunction with
the lords of death houses, will cause death in preference to
aoy of those planets.
There arc many rules to ascertain the probable lime of
death knowing beforeh9nd MaTaka Dasas. Any detailed
informatio'n in regard to Ibis would increase the bulk. or tbe
book beyond reasonable proportion ..
. Add together the longitudes of Saturn, Jupiter, the Sun
and the Moon. This gives us a point in the zodiac after

Judgment of 8 Horoscope
The notable triumphs in Hindu astrology SO far as the
predictive portion is conceroed are entirely due to the great
scrutiny tbe plaoetary inHueoccs are subjected to in the
analysis of a horoscope and the relative values of the good
and evil sources of strength ofrlitrerent planets and bhavas.
The following points are noteworthy in the consideralion
of a horoscope :-

The greatest assets of a man in tbis life, apart from the
shadowy wealth and fa me. arc selfrespect, courage and
frowes!. In a horoscope tbese can be determined by consider-
ing Mars and tbe cha racteristics attributed to him which are
di scussed in the future chapters. But bere I shall confine
mysel f t o tbe discussion of the most salient points involved in
the judgment of a horo3cope. The lord of the also must
be considered ; both o f them must occupy a friendly house
and must be fouod not in a BhallasandhiQunctioo of two

must occupy the 10th for good courage and the lord of tbe
3rd and the 11th occupy favourable and friendly

greatness will come before the world when they are quite

able and extraordinary. They are intuitive and good judges
of character. They bave no organising capacity and are
capable of acquiring very fine education. They will be much

Interests of even their enemies, when trust is placed in them.

moderately tall. They are reserved in their manners and are
liable to draw premature conclusions on any matter. They
are God-fearing. They are generall y supersti tious and

and can forego anything but tbeir orthodoxy; or they can
be exactl y the opposite. They are somewhat stubborn, ratbh
timid . and ambitious to exercise authority o'Yer others. They
a re true and are proud of odler
attainments. If the lord of the 7th is badly amicted, they will
ba'Yc double marriage. ' They are restless and fond of history,

fru gal in spending money and though generally dependent
upon others throughout their life still bear a mark of inde-
pendence. They are just in their dealings and fear to transgress
the laws of truth With all thi s. tbey lack self-confidenc.
Judgment of Bhav (Housea)
The twelve bbavas or bouses represent tbe entire bistory
of the individual. By a careful ICfotiny of tbe planetary
combinations aud aspects in tbe twelve bouses, tbe
whole life of a Iperson caD be predicted with sufficient
accuracy. The combinations given below are not chosen at
random hut arc choscn from a study of the boroscopes of
persons of vari.ous ranks and eminences. Many have been
ptbered from tbe best and tbe most standard works on
Hindu astrology. 10 applying these rules to practical boro-
scopes, tbe student must definitely bear in mind that they-arc
merely for his guidance. In addition to tbis, be must also
exercise discretion and common sense coupled, of course,
with a certain amount of intuition. For instance, the astro-
logical principles say tbat if the 4th house is occupied by
benefi cs and its lord well situated, tbe native gets high edu-
cation. This is quite sufficient for an intelligent student to
anticipate certain otber things not meotionod here. In fact
they strike themselves to the student. In a boroscope. a
bene6c may be found in tbe 4th-whicb may be bis house of
exaltation. debilitation, or enmity or a friend's sign. Even
though a benefic may be in the 4th, the resuits it gives
apparently vary according to its disposition towards the lord
of that sign. If Jupiter is in exaltation in tbe '4th house,
religious learning may be predicted. If he is in debilitation,
in the 4th bouse the kind of education mult neccJ'Sarily

differ. Still in both cases, it is Jupiter that occupies the 4th
house. Similarly, with regard to other combination, ODe
must consider all these problems carefully and then venture
a prediction. Tbe relations and . inten-elations of planetary
placements must be carefully scrutinised and tben
ventured. Deterministic interpretation of the combination'

Some Specie I Yoga.
Yogas in Sanskrit astrological nomenclature special
planetary combinations for the production of higb P.9litical
power and influence, great wealth, philanthropy. asceticism,
misery. debt s, demoralisatioo and curruption. III all boro-
scopeS, these yogas must be properly scrutinised aloog witb
tbe application of tbe usual astrological rules. These impor.
taot yogas make or mar a man for. if special arisntQ$ or
misfortunes are fouod in a horoscope, tbe person will be
always miserable, even tbough according to ordinary 3'1tro-
logical rules, such a boroscope is a promising one. The word
Yoga is quite indigenous and such a system canoot be found
io the astrological principles of other nations. These reveal
a flood of information to the astrological student. when pro-
perly studied and applied. Tbe Western reader must clearly
comprehend tbe technicalities iovolved in tbe application of
these yogas and try to understand their significance thoroughly.
There are differeot types of yogas-RajoJ'oga-producing
higb political power; Dnanayoga or combinatioD for great
wealth; Gnanayoga or combination for real bigber knowledge
and renunciation of the world; and Arishlayoga-series of
misfortunes orthe most baneful oature. There are thousands
of lucb yogas given in the original Sanskrit works and tbeir
reproduction bere would mean firstly a great slrain on tbe
comprebending powers of tbe reader and secondly, increase
of tbe bulk of the book beyond proportioo. The results
Some Spec..ial yo,as

Sip YOI!
Gnana means knowledge which may mean for the aCQuisi-
tioo of power and wealth or the kind of knowledge which
makes a man " know thyself" as Socrates says In acquiring
knowledge tbere are two aspects to be considered. One is
scholarship, culture, literary power and imagination and the
other is spiritual knowledge and the realisation of Self.
Literary power and scholarship ate obtained from the
posi ti on of Venus and Mercury and this is also controlled by
Jupiter. .

Vargotlarna (occupying the same sign in Rasi and Nayamsa),
the person become, a great lecturer and orator.

any particular rules which will apply in all cases. Therefore,
we give some of the important rules by way o f example, The
reader may draw si milar canc1usions. bavi ng all the time
regard to tbe strength and propensity of the planet. The
result sbould be consistent with the person for whom it is
intended, under the condit ion of li fe in which he is brought
up as well as the physical poss ibil ity at the time. For instance
political success may be predicted in the Dasa of the Sun, if
he is in Aries in the 10th house. This political succeSS' wili be
at its maximum provided the Sun is not aspected by malefics
and his pOSit ion is equall y strong in the Navamsa. If he is
aspected by Sat urn who may be in Aquarius, then in of
tbe SUD being in Aries, complete political success canhot bl..
and ought not to be predicted .
The lord of t he Oasa has a quali ty of his owo stamped
upon him. This will aga'in be modified by the nature of the
bouse, the nature of tbe sign, the nature of the aspectU"ag
bodies, the nature of the lord of the constella ti on tbe Oasa
lord is in, tbe favourable and unfavourable situati on of t.he
lord of Oasa in tbe Navamsa and va ri ous other fac tors .
In general we may say:
1. The Oasa period of Saturn, if it happens to be the 4th
Oasa, will be unfavourable.
2. The Oasa period of Jupiter will be unfavourable if it
happens to be the 6th Oasa.
. If Saturn and Jupite r are strong and favourably disposed,
the evil effe..:ls get modified.
3. The Oasa peri od of the lords o f the 6th and the 8th
produce harmful results unless they acquire beneficence
4. The Dasa periods of planets in Shava sandhis (junc-
ti onal poi nts) will be unable to produce their full result s.

. S: I,D the course of a Dua. a planet produces sucb resultl
as It indicates by o f ownership, association, location
and aspect. For Instance, favourable position of the lord of
tbe 2nd will give good income aod wealth during his Dasa.
6. The Dasa results stand to be modified by the effect of
GocharQ or transiting planets.
1. When LAgna (Ascendaot) is powerful, during theDasa
of lord of Lagna, favourable result s can be expected to occur
as ri se in profession, good health and general pros-
8. Lord of the 2nd in his Oasa gives wealth.
9. Lord of the 3rd during his Dasa gives new friends
belp to brothers, lea,dership, Hod physical pain (if afflicted).
',D. If the lord IS ,;eJl placed as already explained above,
he will do good regardmg tbe house or houses with wbich he
may do by way of ownership or aspect
or locauon dUring hi S period, while if the lord is weak and iII-
placed, he will inOict misery.
11. The periods of lords of the 5th and the 9th are said
be good, so much so that the periods of planets, which are
or Otherwise related with them, are also supposed to
give rhe to good.
'.2. The general effect of the Dasa (major period) get
by the planet that rules the particular Bhukfl (sub-

I J_ During the Dasa period of a malefic planet when
the sub-period of a planet ruling tbe 3rd, the Stb or the 7th (reckoned .from the natal star) is in progress, the subject
will have a period of trial and tribulation.
14. Unfavourable result s will be realised wben the sub-
lord and th.e major lord are situated in the 6th and the 8th or
the 12th and the 2nd from each other respectively.

Source and Nature of Death
Fatalists and atheists lDay indulge in the hallucination s
that death is accidental . that it is merely the resolution of the
('omponent elements of the human body into their former
states and that it signifies an end to tbe activities of the soul
as it becomes incorporated with the general ethereal currents;
but in it does not seem to be so. There is much signifi-
cance attached to this by the Hindus as well as other people
believing in the existence of a Creator without whose
ledge "not even a sparrow faUs to the &round'"
Death doc;s not come all of a sudden; neither does birth
take place so . . Man does not come from nothingness and
disappear into the regions of annihilation. Some mysterious
and subtJe power seems to control reaulate the various phases
of human exi stence, like birth, life and death. operating in a
definite order and often transcending reason. logic and com-
monsense. The presence and operation of thi s power is
demonstrable by everyday occurrences.
Here comes the importance of the laws of Xarma and tbe
laws of continuity and eyolution. The Hindus grant the
existence of worlds other than our own and the possibility of
the soul migrating into good or bad states of future existence
after death. according as the KJJrma done in this world is lOad
or bad. As Socrates puts it. death is either the cessation " of
all human activities or tbe migration of tbe soul into a happier
sourt'e 3Dd Nature of Death I7J
Philosophers say that death is a stale of for
the soul to enter into more subtle forms of t'l xi stence and
duration of life in such states of exi stence depends upon the
balance sheet of Karma at onc's credit at the time of dealh
By ascertaining the length of life beforehand, and
nature and source of death. it may be possible to prevent
many and family strifes in thi s life. Some aver
thai it may also be poss ible to\ong the life. by recourse
to yoga and other remedies prescribed by the ancient Mahar-
sbi s.. Many times the !li udden death of a person lea\'es his
widow. children and other dependents in a slate of abject
poverty. Adequate provisiot)" could ha ve been made for

divide the product' by 27. Note the consleiJalion that is
arrived at by counting the re mainder from Aswini. When
Satu rn passes through thi s constell ation or its triangular ones,
the death of the person's father or paternal uncle must be
predi clcJ in such a constell at ion if the particular Dasa is
inclined tu clrcel maraka (death) to the respective parties.
Taking the illu,; tration: The total of the Sun's Ashtaka-
va rga will be 14. This multiplied by the figure in the 9th
from the Sun. i .e. , 2 in Pi:sces, we get 14 x 2 :- 28. This
product , divided by 27, yields I as remainder. So in this

obtained by dividing this product by 12. when counted from
Aries, gives the sign tbrough which or througb one of its
triangular signs, when the Sun passes, the native dies if
that is his nlaraka period.
The total of the Sun's Ashtakavarga after all reductions
made is 14. This multiplied by 2, the figure in the 8tb from
tbe SUD in bis Ashtakavarga, gives 28. This divided by 12
gives 4 as the remainder. So we have to take, that when
tbe Sun passes through Ca!,cer, Scorpio or Pisces he will
die, in. case the Dasa period al so indicates tbe same.
23. Add together the figures in Arin, Leo and Sagit-
tarius ; in Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn; in Gemini, Libra

SorvDshtaka,arga mean. the Asbtakavarga of all tht-
planets considered together. So rar we have considered the
BhinnQshtakavarga, I.e. , the Asbtakavarga of each individual
planet and that too after each has been subjected to two
k:nd" of reducti ons.
We shall now dispense with the Ashtakava rga Table
obtaineJ after reductions and pitcb our attention upon the
Table obtained before To obtain
t he Sarvas ht akavarga, add together all tbe 8.R. bindus in
each separately. For example. tbe 6gure in tbe sign Aries
o f the Sar'lashtakavarga will be the aggregate of the bipdus
or figures in the sign Aries in the several Bhi1JJUJsIt.
(i ndividual Ashtakavarga Tables) . Similarly, tbcn. .' tal
bi nd us in Taurus, Gemini. etc.) must be obtained.
As a lready stated above, tbe student must bear in mind
t hat thi s addit ion or bind us must be carried out before the
two reductions are applied.
We Shall take the illustrated horoscope gi ven at tbe
beginning of this chapter as an example.
Adding togetber all tbe bindu! found in Aries in each
table alvcn a bove ("'before reduction" figures), we get the
Slin's Ashtakava rga 5, p llU the Moon's Ashlakavarga 4, pillS

plus Venus' 5: plus Saturn's 4-29 total, whieb is of course

Praana Saltra or Horary Astrology
Horary Astrology deals exclusively with the aoswering of
questions in Itbe ligbt of planetary ioflucncCJ. relating t o
important events in I the daily transactioDs of human life.
This branch indeed form. a mOlt useful and prominent aspect
of science inasmuch as it helps us 10 foretell tbe
occurrence of many important future eveDts beforehand.
how and when sucb eVeDts will lake place, what their exact
nature is whether or Dot they terminate favourably, who is
instrumental for tbem and how far such events 8rc beneficial
or detrimental to the interet!s of tbe party concerned, witbout
reference to the birth chart.
Supposing a perSOD wants to know whether bis It'?.lcn
property can be regained or Dot. whether an individual
suffering seri ously recovers from bis illness or not, w.bether
if would be profitable to invest money in any business
tion wbether a man would be ,uccessful in any speculation.,
whe;ber tbe land5 be is planning 10 purchase would bring
him luck and whetber, in fact, so many everyday human
events would be beneficial or not, then all these can
fully be answered with tbe aid of Horary Astrology. The
predictions based on its principles seldom go wrong unless
the \lery foundation is shaky.
If any obstacles are tbrown on tbe way of luccessjn a ny
undertaking or enterprise. by ascertaining these beforehand by
meaDS of H6rary Astrology, we can resort to remedies to
rra-a Sallrl or Horl ry AltroJoay
minimise or completely overcop1e such evils, aod augment
tbe good, so tbat the future way for ODe', progress and
prosperity may be smootbened. .
In tbe case of Prasne or Horary Astrology, first ascerlaln
dic e-act lime at whicb aquestion or query is put and for
iliitiime the positions of planet s and tbe A.sccndant
and determine tbe balanc;e of tbe Dua and Bbukti : Mark
ar.o tbe Navamsa diagram". In fact construct a map of .lhe
beaven. for the question time just-as you would do for
time. A Dumber of typical questiflns are also given in my
Astr%lY Jor Beginners.
Thi s Asccndant is called tbe Prasoa lagna or the rising
silO at the time of tbe question.
I . The success and failure in any unaertaking, sucb as
starting of business, examination result s, , be
pr'edicted with reference Tbe of
the querist will succeed if a bcne6clal sign rases and JOIOS a
favourable navamsa, or if tbe rising sign be io a Sfrsh,QdQ'ya
Rasi. If tbe beneficial rising sign is aspected , by malelics
and its lord has also a similar position tbe querist will
after some effort.
, Whetber a particular query refers t o mineral s,' vegetables
or ani mals must be lint asccrtained as per rules given below
and then, its success or failure prognosticated.
2. If, at tbe of a query, the r ,sing sip be 1st, 4tb
and 7tb ' 2nd 5th and 8tb ; alld Jrd, 6th and 9tb nanmsas,
tbC que; tion 'refers to minerals, and animals
respectively in an odd sign, and in an e\len SlgO , the reverse
bolds good .
o 3. If, at the time of query, Saturn is fouod in ao odd
sip from tbe Pruna Lasna, the woman will ba\le a male
and if Saturn occupies an even sign, a female cbild
_ill be born. lfmale planets occupy masculine Shathorgo3
Hindu Predictive AstrolOlY
a male child will be born ; if male planets are in female
ShQdvargQs a female child will be born.
4. tr Saturn is in the 7tb bouse, the querist will be
married within 3 montbs from the date of question. If the
Moon in 3, S. 6, 7 or II is aspectcd by Jupiter. tbe Suo aod
Mercury, and if benefics o,,-cupy quadrants or trincs, tbe
quedst will have marriage vcry carly.
S. If at tbe time of query it is found that tbe SliD,
Venus or Mars joins tbe 7th bouse, it means tbe querist bas
committed adullery with another mao's wife. in the
7tb i ndicates bis own wife. Mercury, a prostitute, and Saturn
a very low-caste woman.
6. Predict the safe rcturn of the person gone to foreign
land,., if the query refers to tbis point , if tbere is any planet
retrograde between tbe 8tb bouse and the Asceodant.
7. If a query refers to the advent of enemies in a war
or otberwise, such enemies would retreat, even if they have
come some di stance, .hould be predicted when the 4th 5th
and 6th hOUSe' from tbe Prasna Lapa are occupied by' evil
planet.. The enemy even if be has com.: for an attack would
return back within that period (in months) obtained by
reckoning from t he Prasna Lagna to the planet fully possessed
of strengtb. If such a powerful planet falls in a fixed sign,
double the number of months, ifhe occupies a common sign,
treble the Dumber of month .
Say at the t ime of a query Cancer rises and Jupiler
possessed of full strength is in tbe 8th, ,;z., Aquarius. Count
from Cancer to Aquarius. Tbis is 8. Since Aquarius is a
fixed sign . double 8, you will get 16. That is, if this query
relates 10 It ny war, the enemy would return within 16 months
or peace efforts would be successful within 16 months from
date of tbe commencement of regular hostilities.
8. Success in speculation. etc . should be predicted when
benefics are in 3, 5, 7 aod II and losses when malefics are

Unknown Birth Times
The birth data of many people will not have been recorded
properly. In many a case, even the date of birth will be
unknown . In such cases it is possible to find out, rather
create, a horoscope on the basis of certain fundamental

enuncIated herein are conclusive. An attempt is made in
the following pages to give the reader an idea of the methods
recommended by ancient Hindu astrological writers for
erecting boroscopes of persons whose birth dates arc not
known. And these methods merit further research and
investigation of astrology. It is boped
that workers In thIS field wtll continue investigations and
carry views herein outlined to a more extended issue since
this work is intended to merely lay down general principles.
.The rules involved are laborious and take away the
patience of the reader. I have given only one important
process and have illustrated the same with an eumple so
tbat tbe reader may not find it difficult to understand these
principles clearly.
The astrologer, as soon as a person, who will not have
recollection of his birth date or time, comes to him for
consultation. must record the exact time, the direction and
other details of hi, coming and find out the exact positions
of planets and the bhavas for that time; or the time at which

be the otber half, the birtb will have occurred in
yana (Sun's southernly course).

be easily dt!termined and in such cases, find out the number

Here tbe maximum life is'1aken to be 120 yeara., and this is

Medical Astrology
Medical Astrology is a part of the grand celestial scieoce
dealing with the several zodiacal. planetary and stellar
which affect tbe health, constitution, funclions
and habits of life. In faci. Medicine is a branch of astro-
logy. This conclusion is clear on its very face . Configurations
of plaoets in the heavens in certain angular positions emanate
certain forces or energies, which , when they are not in
harmony with the energies of an individual, bring about
certain disturbances in his physical and mental dispositions.
To avert the evil in8uences of planets, tbe ancients contem-
plated upon discovering remedies, and the science of Me.dicine
was gradually founded and developed in this manner.
Each sign of the zodiac a certain part of the
human body and the diseases peculiar to it and each planet
also indicates certain types of diseases. Disease and death
are due to the disturbances in tbe laws of proporti9n and
conjuncti on of natural forces emanating from the
and the times which these disturbances occur, can be
previously ascertained and provision made to arrest
or minimise such evil influences.
The planetary positions at clearly Indicate the nature
of the diseases one would suffer from, wben aod how they
would affect us and how best to alleviate tbem.

In the astrological nomet1c1ature. Virgo is referred to as the
sign representing sickness. Mind has a tremendous inOuence
on health and when it is free from agonies and distractioDs.
the health also remains unimpaired. When the mind is

filler and ,the intestines are situated. The Sun, when be

Female Horoscopv*
The combinations hitherto treated of in tbe previous
chapters 8re applicable to botb the sexes but the information
given in tbi s chapter is peculiar to the members of the female
For instance. there is puberty in girls which indicates that
they are fit for entering the state of motherhood. This is a
peculiar characteristic belonging to the feminine sex. The
importance of first menses has so much of physical, mental
and spirit ual signi fi cance that it will be impossible to bring
them home unless we devate special attention to its study. So
many otber things such as conception, delivery. etc., are
peculiar to the women.
Some of the ancient writers held that even though tbe
horoscopes of the women indicate any Raja Yogas-Iike
bestowing political power, etc. , such yogas must be applied to
their husbands. Today the order has been rapidly changing.
Advocates of sex equality have been springing up like mush-
rooms. They want to see that no barriers exist between the
males and the females, God knows for what purpOSe. Women
have been competing wi th men in aU walks of life. The type
of equality, which we have lKen aiming at seems to be similar
to that whicb the West bas realised zlready and for the results

replaced by commercial love. And divorce courts are being
resorted to on flimsy grounds or pretexts for getting rid of

The Lagna or the Ascendant of a country will he the
part icular sign that rules over it. For instance, the Lalna of
England is Aries ; that of India is Virgo and so On . The
exact rising degree is not definitely known.
Tbe twelve houses from the Ascendant in a national boro-
$Cope represent the followi ng important significations:
EfTSI houu. General affairs in tbe State, public health,
tbe conditions of the Cabinet.
Second house.-State revenue, aristocracies in the State,
wealth or the people, Stale imports and commercial tran-
sactions. allies and revenue.
Third house.-Tdephones, telegrams, railways, aeroplanes,
journals and newspapers and the disposition of the neigh-
bouring nations.
Fourth house.-Scbools, colleges and other educational
institutions, pupils. landed estates, general happiness, trade
and agriculture.

In giving the natiooal predictions, the folloWJDg factors
must be carerully considered :_

3. Consider the lunations every mont h and the plan.clary
positions and bow they stand with rererence to the particular
nation or nations.

Saturn and Mars arc there with otber malefic influences.;

---rho most impartaal aspect io Muodanc Astrology is tbe
Planetary Cabinet which will be changios . portfolios every
-year and thus the results wlll also be chanling. Planctary
Cabioct means simply tbis-All tbe leven planets will become
king, prime minister, commander-in-chief, lord of vegetation,
lord of minerals, lord of juices, lord of grains, cattJe, etc.,
and tbese offices will be changing every year. Tbe planet
which becomes king in one year becomes prime minister in the
next year and so on. These details can be ascertained by
looking into any standard almanac.
4. The Sun and the Moon are generally royal planets; if
in any year either of these does oat become, then during
tha' year, the royalty will greatly suffer. Similarly, Mars is
tbe permanent commander-In-chief. Ir, however, in any
particular year he docs not become the commander-in,chief,
the army and navy during that year must suffer. All tbese
details must be considered.
S. The appearance of eclipses pl ays a great part in
national astrololY. The influences will be exerciled for a
period of 6 months before and 6 months after the appearance.
The effects of the eclipse will find manifestation in the
countries tbroush which the eclipse passes. Jf two eclipscs-
of course one solar and one lunar-occur within 14 days, tbore

England on account of some disease. All these came to pas:3.
Mr. Roosevelt's election for the Presidential Chair of
America, for the tbird time, was clearly predicted in the
September 1940 issue of THB ASTROLOGICAL MACAZINB.
Thus eclipses have great significance in Mundane Astro
6. The appearance of comets and the directions in which
they appear sbould also be considered. The country repre-
sented by the signs, in which comets appear, suffers, and tbe
health of tbe people will be affected.

hal been expounded at considerable length. In tbis chapter
we shall deal with a simple method of ascertaining annual

to be necessarily brief in our exposition. FulJ details with
copious explanations and a Dumber of illustrations will he

results. The method adumbrated in tbis chaptet I? be
advaotqeoully used if a snapshot assessment of ayeac's
outlook i. desired.
Before prcdictio, evcots according to rules it propounds,
one sbould devote some thoulht for properly comprehendinl

below, all technicalities have been omitted and one caD easily

however, be hinted tbat our bOok Yarshapha/ enables one to
mate more correct and more detailed prr;diction. as tbe
procedure employed therein is certainly more comprehensive
Ind altolether different, thouah the principle is more or less
tbe1ume. The boroscope for an)' particular year depends
the time cirt6e Suns return' to the i batJl.e

General Estimates

mg to the subject is baving 7, years' Saturn and
both and Saturn are in tbe 12th and Rahu in the 5th-
all these being had. As tbis is tbe second time tbat the native
been undergoing 7, years Saturn, tbe evil effects will only
e modenlle .. tbe above two sets of influences
tbe resultant IS still favourable. Now let us examine tb;
yearly horoscope.

JOOd by ownership and liberation. to general, tbe relults will
be middling in the course of this year, but tetidinB towards
good. Lord of the 10th has oeechabhaoga. ]0 the navamsa,
Saturo has Shubhakarthari Yoga. Thus, the 10th bouse indi
cations will be normal, aod financial conditions will be
bettered. As Mars occupies the 4th, general happiness will be
lacking. Lord of the 2nd aod 5th io the 3rd suue.ts help to
relatives while tbe Suo and Mercury in tbe 11th from the
Moon is indicative of good reputation, name and contact with
high circles. Lord of tbe 10th (from tbe Moon) in tbe 11th
and tbe parivarthana or exchange of houses between lord of
Lagoa (Moon) and the 11th i. favourable for business
improvement. Tbe Sun and Mercury in the 3rd in a move
able sign (Cancer) produce travels in connection with business
which will prove profitable to the native. The 7th lord Mars
in the 10th from the 7tb assures domestic happiness but his
being aspected by Jupiter . lord of the 8th (in the . Navamsa>
gives rise to quarrel s and friction. On the whole, financially
and professionally, the year will be good wbile the conjunction
of the Moon and Rahu does not give mental happiness.
Tbe first Dasa is that of the Sun. Tbis extends from
8.8. 1940 to 14101940. The Sun is lord of the 4th and is in
the 3rd with lord of the 5th forming a yoga. Mercury is the
planet for business, trade and speculation. As tbe Sun is in a
moveable sign and moveable Navamsa in conjunction with
lord of tbe 2nd and 5th and in tbe 2nd from tbe 2nd, be gives
loog travelling in connection wi th business. As everyone
knows Cancer indicates North and the journey will be in tbe
Nortbern countries. In MQrs Dasa, expenses will be great and
income good, friction and journeys.

It will be ken that in the preparation of a horoscope,
planetary positions will be fixed in their respecti ve longitudes.
They are tbere and they will continue to be fixed. But tbere
is no stoppage of planetary movements. Pluets take varying
. periods for moving from one sigo to anotber. Sucb move-
ments give rise to the stimulation of radioactive disintegration

It must be noted that when passing tbrough tbe first 10
degrees of a sign, Mars and tbe Sun produce results. Of the
different planets, tbe Gochara results of the slow moving
planets, Jupiter and Saturn, are held to. be the most powerful.
Tbe triennial results may be ascerta10ed from Saturn, the
yearly effects from Jupiter. the monthly results from other
planets and the daily influences from tbe Moon.
We shall first enumerate tbclikely results tbat are supposed
to accrUe on account of transits of tbe different planets in the
different signs from the Moon and tben describe the special
rules governing Gocbara. When the Moon transits the sign
ccu ied b her at the time OIhirth of a perSOD, tbe native wlli
get excellent food, bed and clothes. When t e MOOD passes
through the 2nd hOlUe, loss of respect and of money and

financial equilibrium. The MOOD transiting the 8tb produces
misery, ill-bealth and fear from unexpected sources; ib tbe 9th
from herself, pain of mind, chest pain, fatigue of body and
the like arc caused. WheD the Moon passes throagh the 10th
house, success will attend in every sphere of activity; in the
11th house. tbe persoo will enjoy prosperity. will set ' wealth
and new friends; when the Moon transits through the 12th
t!&L. he suffers from accidents and injuries.
It may be remarked in passing tba, uoless Gochara is
combined with Ashtakavarga, results cannot be predicted with
appreciable accuracy. suppoa'e the Moon is transiting the
sign occupied by her at birth. The Moon produces beneficial
results provided tbe benefic dots tbere are above 4. If they
are below 4, tben tbe Moon cannot certainly do a. much good
as is ascribed to ber. Planets produce good, bad or indi8'erent
results during tbeir transits at any particular moment, in
accordance with the number of benefic dots which the planets
obtain in tbeir respective Ashtakavargas (see my book A8htakti-
varga System of Prediction for more details regarding
Agaio, we have to conlider what is called Vedha <an
obstructing force or point) when delineating results according
"to Oochara. The Sun, for instance, tranliting tbe Ilth, 3rd,
IOtb and 6th signs from the radical Moon is suppoted to yield
good results. The Imooth flowing of luch good results will
be obstructed if there are aoy other planetl (simultaneously)
transiting the 5th. 9th, 4th' and 12th silns from the Moon

respectively. To be more explicit with refeccnce to. tbe S.un.
ifbe transits tbe 11th .the Vedhuthana johstruchng
will be the 5th; if he transits the 3rd, the Vedastban.a will be
the 9th; if be transits the 10th ; tbe Vedhastba?a Will be tbe
12th. Suppose the Sun is in the 11 th ; accordlDg to Gochara.
tbe results will be honour and. health, wealth and success.
Tbese good effects arc produced only when the 5tb (a house
. ( of Vedha) is not simultaneously transited. any otber ?Ianet

Gochara rcsults should be Judged by reference to Vedba-
sthanas (obstructing points), Tbe prescot-day astrologers
seldom consider Ihese minute details with tbe result that most
of the predictions made by them are being fal sified. thus
bringinl tbe fair name of ast rology iOlo utter disgrace. In
the delineation of Gochara (transit) results, there does not
appear to be a uniform method in tbe whole of Iodia. Some
rest content with describing results on tbe of the
motions of Man, Saturn and Jupiter, irrespective of the part
played by the prevailing Dasa (period) and Bbukti (sub-
period) . There is no denying tbe fact that tbe birth boroscope
affeCts Gocbara results. Astrologkal predictions can
be accurate when the influences of birth cbart are blended
witb those of Gochara and Asbtakayarga, together with Vedba
or obstrocting forces ,

Calculation of the Ayanamae
There are two systems of Astronomy in India-namely,
tbe Nlrayana aDd the Sayana. The former traces observations
of planets to a fixed zodiac. while the latter considers the
moving zodiac commencing from the shifting, vernal equinox.
It is certain that the greatest Hindu Astrological writers
referred to the bed zodiac for predictions. And this fact is
borne out by experience.
The increment between the beginning of the "fixed" and
thl!. "moveable" zodiacs or the Nlrayana and Sayana positions
is referred 10 as Ayanamsa which about 50-Ijl
seconds every year. Western astronomy is based upon tbe
Sayan a system so that it considers the moving zodiac
commencing from the shifting verna) equinox as has already
said above. This. if we deduct this Ayanamsa from tbe
positi ons of planets and cusp. of the bouses obtained accord-
ing to tbe Western system. we will arrive at the Hindu
Wben exactly the two zodiacs were in tbe first point is
doubted by a number of astronomers and accordingly the
Ayanamsa-precessional distance-varies from 19 to 2). I
do not wish to enter into elplaining tbe complicated processes
of astronomy at large wbich centre attention on tbe discussion
of the exact nature of Ayabamsa. but merely confine myself
to giving a suitable aDd simple method for determining the
Oo,,",.Uoo orth. ", amn
First of all. cast tbe boroscope of birtb according to tbe
European manner and convert it into tbe terms of Hindu
zodiac by tbe following process:
( I) Subtract 397 from tbe year of birth (A.D.).
(2) Multiply tbe. remainder by SO 1/3 seconds; and
reduce the product into degrees, minutes and scco?ds.
(3) Subtract tbis Dumber of degree" mmutes and
seconds from the cusps of the bouses and tbe planets'
positions in the figure of. birth and tbe figure tbus
obtained will be a..:cordlOg to the Hindu system.
Example :-
Dctermine tbe Ayanamsa for 1912 A.D.
1912-937 = 1515 x 50l .... = 76255".
76255" ..; 21' 10' 55"
This is the Ayanamsa for 1912 A.v.
