# Hello Friends, I have jumped to the predictive part, bypassing few lessons, to make this course more attractive

. And those bypassed ones we shall keep on taking in between. The other day I was travelling in a bus and met a school friend after 20 years. During our talks, after realising that I am in astrology, he asked me to predict about himself. He gave me his date and year of birth alongwith place, and also remembered his time too. I did not have any Ephemeris with me at that time, neither, Calculator, neither, used paper or pen. a) I immediately gave him his Ascendant, Sun Sign, degrees of Sun at his birth, and which house his Sun was placed in, and lot many things about him, added with flavour and polish to look impressive. And boy, he was impressed.,in fact his whole family was very much impressed, though all this is kid stuff in astrology. b) Out of 12 Houses in the chart, I was able to predict results of about 6 for him, without using any aids to help me. Do You know that by the end of this Chapter, most of You would be able to do the 'a' part succesfuly , just like I did ? Or at least after few more Lessons ? Its really easy and even many professional astrologers do not know to do this, or are not aware, or do not know the application part even if they are aware. Please read on patiently. Now read properly, patiently, and try to remember this after some more re-readings on your part. HOW TO CALCULATE DEGREES OF THE SUN AT BIRTH APPROXIMATELY WITHOUT REFERRING EPHEMERIS 1) Every Planet is moving for us who are on Earth as we see them. So is The Sun (Actually not a Planet but treated like one. Its actually a star or Luminary). All these planets when they move within each sign, the starting point is measured at 0 degrees and ending

Which also means that on 15th the Sun would be at 0 degrees.at 30 degrees Which means that if we count the 12 signs and multiply by 30 degrees we get the figure of 360 Degrees. HOW TO KNOW THE SUN SIGN WITHOUT REFERRING EPHEMERIS .. In this way one can know the degrees of the Sun at birth approximately. and 1 degrees on 16th and 2 degrees on 17th and so on till next 15th when it is at 30 degrees and then has to cross over to the next sign and again would be starting at 0 degrees. all these planets have their daily motions. It takes therefore one month to stay in a sign and cross over to next sign. some have very slow speed like Saturn which takes two and a half years to enter and leave a sign. For example a native born on the 28th of January of any year would be having Sun at approximately 14 degrees ( 0 degrees on 15th + 14 days ). (Remember this) The Sun changes sign every month approximately on 15th or 16th 0r 17th (Remember this). At the moment we will concentrate on The Sun. Dont we say that My Moon is at 6 degrees Sagittarius or Jupiter is at 25 degrees Cancer etcetra ? Well. (Calculate Your own Sun degrees first in mind then check Your Chart). like we know that each planet travels daily at this speed (This knowledge comes from past observation from Observatories and astronomical Statistics) Some planets have very fast speed like The Moon which takes around 2 and a half days to enter and leave a sign. We will come to the daily motions of the Planets in our forthcoming chapters. in any sign which it has just entered. The Sun travels approximately at speed of daily motion of 1 Degree.

Sun remains in Libra Nov 16th to Dec 15th.The Sun would be in 10th House .Sun enters and remains in Capricron Feb 15th to March 15th -Sun remains in Acquarius March 15th to April 15th.if I am born on June 28th as per above table. (The above are approximate dates -maybe not exactly same days as mentioned 1-2 days here n there) (The above position would be shown in Charts made for all those staying in India or who have made their charts calculated here-for western people the Sun sign may be one sign ahead and they have to deduct the ayanamsha to get the above Sun sign.Sun remains in Taurus June 15th to July 15th . my Sun sign would be Gemini.Sun remains in Gemini July 16th to Aug 15th .Sun remains in Scorpio.Sun remains in Aries May 15th to June 15th .(When any of Your friends is born on say 15th or 16th dont predict his Sun sign without referring the Ephemeris) HOW TO PREDICT WHICH HOUSE SUN WOULD BE WITHOUT REFERRING TO THE ACTUAL CHART OR EPHEMERIS. (Remember this By Heart) If the Birth is at time ofSunrise.Sun remains in Cancer Aug 16th to Sept 16th.Sun remains in Leo Sept 17th to Oct 16th .which is why I have asked all members to download the Software and put KP Ayanamsha and then subsequently make all charts) Example . Note.Sun remains in Virgo Oct 16th to Nov 16th .then Sun would be in 1st House or Ascendant. At Noon .Giving below the Dates each Month when The Sun normally changes and to which Sign? (The best way to remember this is to first remember your Own Sun sign and start from that month ) Jan 15th to Feb 15th . Dec 15th to Jan 15th -Sun remains in Sagittarius.Sun remains in Pisces April 15th to May 15th .

we can roughly take the following slots as position of Sun for Local birth time .Sun would be in 7th House Evening 7pm to Night 9 pm . Birth time at :Morning 5am to 7am .Sun would be in 11th House Morning 11 to 1 Noon .30 am for a person in Bombay and for a person in Calcutta too.The Sun would be in 7th house At Midnight . in Bombay'.Third House Early morning 3am to 5 am . The above is a very crude method of predicting. you can immediately tell him safely that Your Sun is in 11th House. and still night for a person in Bombay. but the sky would show Sunrise for a person in Calcutta in Summer.Sun would be in 10th House Noon 1 .00pm Midnight to 1.Sun would be in 2nd House.4th house Late night 1 am to early morning 3 am . or once in a while when You are sure about the results. Thus if someone says that ' I was born on February 28th at 10am morning.Sun would be in 4th house.Sun would be in 9th House Evening 3pm to 5 pm . . (In above.00 am after midnight . That is known in crude language as local Mean time.3 pm .Sun would be in 12th House Morning 9 to 11am .But will explain in short. not to be used unnecessarily.take the movement of The Sun as clockwise and not anti-clock wise) In India when the Sunrise is almost at same time throughout the year (Except at winter time nearing December when it may be late by 1 hour or so).9am .Sun would be in 1st House Morning 7 .At Sunset . Though the clock will show 4. but when you are travellng or sitting in a group with no means of equipment like Ephemeris. Local Mean time or LMT we would be talking in later lessons .Sun would be in 6th house Night 9pm to 11 pm Sun would be in 5th House Night 11.Sun would be in 8th House Evening 5pm to 7pm (Sunset). Computer etc.

now to the last part of this Chapter. not as per India. solving a childs puzzle and gaining the same happiness and joy. in their cities of residence. finding the Ascendant is easy. Okay.am or pm to the computer chart maker or he does not listen properly and feeds in wrongly. That would really amaze him and make him a fan of Your prowess. HOW TO FIX ACSENDANT WITHOUT REFERRING TO THE CHART OR EPHEMERIS. You should be able to guess this one for yourself by now. and prepare such a chart for themselves .You may try out making a chart on a piece of paper. filling in whatever you know or have found out. One more advantage .For those people in whose country/place and that particular season or time of the year.When You happen to see the chart of the native. but let me explain. so better avoid predicting mentally for those cases. then You have to shift the timings backward. . (The foreign students can check their Sunrise and Sunset timings throughout the year. and then ask your contact to open his chart and match the same.as per the time of birth he mentions. with nothing matching his own life. if the Sun rises late. Once You know the position of the Sun. and check the position of The Sun. you also immediately realise whether the chart is printed rightly or wrongly. cause at times people forget to say rightly. yet. But do not forget certain countries and places have bizzare (A wrong word actually) Sunrise and sunset timings. I do not think that this is necessary to explain.or early.after little bit deductions or additions in timings. for their use). . or the Sun forward accordingly after some study. I have myself detected a few wrongly made charts by this method. and then the poor native shows around the wrong chart to all astrologers.

Now count anticlockwise till you reach the 1st house.Sign No. Take another exampleBirth on 10th February Time 10.Sign No.Answer Leo. 3 12 th house Cancer . You can do this in your mind without the use of Writing Pad or Pen. 5th House Capricorn 6th House Acquarius 7th house Pisces 8th house Aries 9th house Taurus 10th house Gemini 11th House Cancer 12th house Leo and There You are 1st House Virgo.00pm night. .30 am in month of June of say day 20th. You will count thus11th house Gemini .5 Therefore the ascendant is Leo.Sign No.Suppose one was born at 10. What is the Sun Sign ? .00pm after Noon. Sun would be in 5th house as per previous table given. Sun would be in Capricorn as per previous table given.4 1st House Leo . Start counting anticlockwise .9th House. Therefore Sun would be in Gemini and in 11th house. Now we will take one example which will incorporate all that we have learnt uptil now in this ChapterBirth New DelhiDate .24th August Time 2. What is the Degrees of The Sun ? Answer 7 Degrees ( From 17th till 24th its 7 days therefore 7 degrees) Which house is Sun Placed in ? Answer .

Etc.by heart and probably right. thus. If You use same timings given above and change only the month to January. Suppose we presume that the above birth statistics was right. b) I know the effects of Sun in Leo what it can be . if You make a chart in the computer.What is the Ascendant ? Answer Counting anticlockwise I reach to the Ascendant as Sagittarius. That would take care of predictions of further 3 houses.then. For advanced predictions a) I know the constellation in which The Sun is placed in this chart and can give the effects in narration. . and ascendant is not Sagittarius but Scorpio. you will find. Therefore. and not in the 9th . (The above is wrong results actually. Why did I make a mistake ? Because in August the Sun rises 1 and a half hour early than the Sunrise of January. Therefore the timings have to be changed accordingly in my table. you shall find that the Sun has moved now to 9th House .which I have made. Sun is placed in 10th house. How could I make predictons after arriving at above statistics ? Because a) I know what are the characteristics of The Ascendant Sagittarius and can talk in flowery language about the positive points of this Ascendant rising and the nature of the native. c) I know also the effects of the Sun in 9th House. and hence even the noon comes earlier. e) I know that Sun is aspecting (we will learn about this later) the 3rd house and what effects would this produce. b) I may also be knowing which sign Saturn would be in the year of birth whatever it may be . Etc. please tread carefully in such matters). d) I know which house Lord ship The Sun has in this chart (The Sun is coincidentally Lord of the 9th house in this chart and also placed in the 9th).
