If the Cuspal Sub Lord of the House, mentioned in Column1, is the significator (in the Star of the occupant or owner) of the House or Houses, mentioned in Column II, then only during the joint period of the significators of the House or Houses (mentioned in Column III) will the results of the expected matter shown in Column IV, be experienced.

Cuspal Sub Lord Event Table

Sometimes Rahu or Ketu becomes the Cuspal Sub Lord of the principal house under consideration, and it occupies neither of the house or houses under review. But the Cuspal Sub Lord, its Star Lord, and its Sub Lord, also Rahu or Ketu, are found to be "connected with" the principle house or houses under review in any manner. In such cases we have to use our discretion in determining the happening of an event. So an overall view of the Horoscope should be taken.

Strength of the Lagna Lord


In this article we will address whether the lagna lord in any given chart is determined as strong or weak. There are four indicators of strength versus weakness, as indicated below: 1. 2. 3. 4. A Middle Weak Very very levels levels weak strong of of levels levels strength the of of of lagna lagna the the lord lord lagna lagna lord. lord. strength. strength.

1. A very strong level of the lagna lord means that the lagna lord should occupy any one of the following houses: the 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 11th, or 4th, and tenant the stars of the lords of the 2nd, 10th, and/or 11th houses. 2. Middle level strength of the lagna lord means that the lagna lord is not found occupying the 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 11th, or 4th, but instead occupies the 5th, the 8th, or the 12th and tenants the stars of the lords of the 2nd, 10th, and/or 11th. 3. (a) Weak levels of a lagna lord means that the lagna lord - though occupying any one of the following houses - 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 11th, or 4th - tenants the star lords of the 5th, 8th, or 12th houses. 3. (b) A different way of looking at this would be to say that the lagna lord occupying the 5th, 8th, or 12th house and tenanting the stars of the lords of the 2nd, 10th or 11th, makes the lagna lord appear to be strong but is actually considered to be one step below that of the middle level of strength. 4. Very weak levels of a lagna lord means that the lagna lord is occupying the 5th, 8th, or 12th house and also tenanting the the stars of the lords of the 5th, 8th, or 12th houses. All birth charts you come across will not always be found to contain the positions as explained above, while certain other charts will be descriptive exactly as explained above. Other than the Sun and the Moon, all planets have lordship over two houses. One house may give pleasant results while the other house may offer unpleasant results. Keep in mind that what has been explained above with respect to a strong or weak lagna lord are only approximations. Lagna lord subjected to the 5th, 8th, and 12th houses is considered weak while lagna lord subjected to the 2nd, 3rd, 10th, and 11th houses is considered strong, but this is a general and approximate conclusion, as more synthesis is necessary before a final evaluation can be determined. For example, we have to study the house occupied by the lagna lord and the constellation it tenants, along with the aspects formed, integrate our findings, and then sort out the strength/weakness at the fundamental level before a final assessment can be made. An example would be a person born with a Leo lagna, and the lagna lord Sun occupying the the 2nd house, posited in the star of Hasta owned by the Moon - who is 12th lord. By this position alone, this information would initially suggest a weak lord. But at the same time the Sun- by virtue of occupying the 2nd house - does not make it a totally weak lagna lord. Now by the same token if the Sun occupies Cancer - the 12th house - and is posited in the star of Mercury owned Aslesha - who owns the 2nd and 11th houses, you would initially consider the Sun to be a strong lagna lord - however - Sun as as an occupant of the 12th house does not make it a totally strong lagna lord. Therefore, with a little more effort in our analysis, we should be able to determine the correct strength of the lagna lord. A chart gifted enough to have 100% favorable results all the way around will be a rare one, as the reality is that very few births are blessed to be those of great scholars, or to be blessed with both name and fame. The majority of the population belong the the middle level, or even below the middle level. So it becomes necessary to keep all of the above in mind as you assess and evaluate the strength of the lagna lord.

Narrowing Down the Significators


If the Birth or Horary Chart indicates more than three or four significators with respect to the matter that is being judged, unimportant significators may be eliminated with the assistance of the Ruling Planets. Jot down the Ruling Planets (RP's) of the moment when you begin the process of analysing and judging the Horoscope.

The common planets between the significators (of the matter/event to be judged) and the RP's may be considered as the final significators, and the rest may be eliminated.

1. An event happens during the joint period (Mahadasha, Bhukti, Pratyantardasha, Sookshma Dasa) of the significators of the houses under consideration. 2. In cases where the significators of the houses under consideration exceed more than four, the unimportant significators should be eliminated as under:

Preference should be given to Rahu or Ketu if it represents any significator. The planet whose Sub Lord is the significator of the house detrimental to the house or houses under consideration, should be eliminated first.

3. The order of the period rulers becomes fixed according to the sign position of the Moon at the time of birth in each case (Vimshottari Dasha). So one cannot avoid this. So if the period ruler is in any manner connected with the matter of the house under consideration, or if it is the chief governor of the matter under consideration, it is to be considered as an important significator of the matter under consideration.

Longevity of Native's Mother


As Ketu represents Moon, omit Moon and retain Ketu. As Sun's Sub Lord, Saturn, occupies the first house of the Mother, omit it. So Ketu, Venus, and Rahu become the final significators of the Badhaka and Maraka houses as counted from the 4th for the native's Mother.

The native's Mother died on November 1, 1923 during the joint period of Ketu, Venus, and Rahu.

Marriage
Moon is in the sub of the Sun which is posited in the 6th, so omit the Moon.

Mercury, Ketu, Rahu, and Jupiter are in the sub Rahu which is posited in the 2nd and is significator of the 7th, so retain them.

It may be noted that the native passed the periods of Mercury and Ketu in his childhood. The period of Rahu will start in his old age, and there is no scope for the period of Jupiter. So these significator planets will work as Sub Period, inter period, and Sookshma period rulers.

The Native was running the period of Venus since January 13, 1929, and it continues up till January 13, 1949. Venus is the chief governor for marriage. It is in the Star of Jupiter and in the Sub of Saturn owning the 2nd. The Star Lord Jupiter aspects the 7th cusp, Moon owns the 7th, Mercury is in the 7th, and The Rahu Native is got in the 2nd. on So Venus 13, is 1937 a strong during significator the joint for marriage.

Exaltation & Debilitation


There appears to be some prevailing confusion about exactly what Exaltation and Debilitation actually mean in evaluation of a KP chart. So below is a brief overview of the planetary interactions, followed by my attempts at explaining the effects of exaltation and debilitation, and their usage in KP, according to my understanding of the basic and primary teachings of the KP Stellar System. What we already know is that a planet moving under the influence of his Star Lord, will act according to the dictates of that Star Lord. With that in mind, we are also well aware that the planet will predominately offer the results of the house in which the Star Lord is posited, in addition to the house(s) owned by the Star Lord. Then, the planet itself offers the results of the house it occupies and the house(s) it owns. So basically each planet has a role to play, and both the Star Lord and the planet combine their influence to determine whether the event will be favorable or not. If unfamiliar with this concept, more examples of how a planet will act, or behave, can be found in my article KP: How Does the Dasha Lord Function? So what exactly does Exalted or Debilitated infer?

Several indicators are simply givens in KP, and must not only be considered, but must also be both integrated and synthesized into your analysis before a final determination is made. But according to sizing up an event, only the house results are offered - so where does that leave the sign effects that the planet is placed in, such as the planet's exalted or debilitated status? Here is where much confusion seems prevalent in KP assessments, especially when a planet is badly placed in the 8th or 12th house, but simultaneously exalted in status. Or when a planet is in a debilitated state, but posited in the benefic 11th house? How do we assess these results becomes the question. Exaltation and debilitation are "strength" and "weakness" indicators respectively, and therefore their specific job is to give us an idea of how much "muscle" (strength or weakness) the planet carries, within its environment, or on its ability to carry out its function determined by its house placement. So if a planet is strong due to exaltation, but badly placed in the 12th, the planet does not change its role and become good for the 12th house, but rather the effects are that the planet will not hasten to quickly carry out the functions for his position in any given house, and will therefore quickly bring about loss (or another 12th house function) in a very timely manner. Why? Because he has the strength to act quickly and with no delay, and he is very comfortable where he is positioned in his exalted status. He works fast because he is in a happy and exalted state, caring not that he is working quickly to bring about less than fortunate events.

He's just doing his job with the muscle provided to do it with. When the planet has established a set of results that need to be carried out due to his Star level placement, exaltation does not absolve him of the adverse results that need to be carried out, and subsequently allow him to change his ways to make the results pleasant. Not at all. This is simply not the way exaltation and debilitation work, nor is it part of their role as "strength indicators" for a planet. The planets do not give contrary results due to their strength status. So, also, do we judge the effects of a planet posited in a good house, but in the state of debilitation. This debilitated planet will still carry out the positive acts for the house in which he is posited, but his strength factor will not allow him to do so quickly or in a timely manner. So the result is that he will eventually bring the good effects about, but not in a timely manner or with speed under his wings. He only carries enough strength to respond to his mission in a slow and delayed manner because he is not happy being posited where he is, and at the degree at which he is debilitated, but he has a job to do. Therefore, he will carry it out and do his job, but NOT in a manner contrary to what his position indicates; it will simply be carried out at a snails pace. More Apparent "Strength" Confusion:

Now the KP confusion I'm seeing frequently, and the common "catch" to the exaltation/debilitation game is this...Exactly WHEN is a planet considered to be exalted or debilitated? Is is just by being posited in the respective signs of exaltation or debilitation, such as Jupiter being considered to be debilitated simply because he is posited in Capricorn? Or Venus is considered exalted just because she is posited in Pisces? The answer to this question is NO! There are refinements to strengths and weaknesses that need to be addressed before blanket statements are made due to assessing these planetary strengths and weaknesses. For example, is Jupiter, when posited at 15 Cancer, considered to be in an exalted state? No! Why? Jupiter is exalted at 05 Cancer, not at 15 degrees Cancer. Orbs must be set in place and respected for the effects of exalted or debilitated status to be truly effective; sign positions alone are irrelevant when assessing planetary strengths. So to say that a planet is exalted or debilitated simply because it is posited in its sign of exaltation or debilitation is incorrect; the degrees of the sign placement are necessary to determine whether that planet is truly in an exalted or debilitated state. The KP preferred orb allowance is 50'(minutes)* on either side of its exaltation or debilitation degree. Below is a Table showing the exalted and debilitated placements. I sincerely hope this further clarifies the positon of exaltation versus debilitation. With reference to Navamsha positions, my take on this is that in KP, this Varga has been used to further refine thestrength of a planet.

References

I had not seen an orb reference in any of the KP books but was feeling like this overall planetary "exalted/debilitation" assessment by some of the Krishnamurti enthusiasts was getting a bit out of hand, but I had nothing concrete in KP to base my gut feelings on. So I was absolutely delighted when I finally came across a KP reference addressing the acceptable orb that should be in place, for exaltation and debilitation to be truly effective. If you have the book "Astrosecrets and Krishnamurti Padhdhati" Part 1, you will find the reference on page 36 of the Fourth Edition; April 2003. If you do not have the book at hand, below is the direct quote for your reference: When he begins his sentence "From this" in the first sentence below, he is referring to the preceding planetary Star and Pada information for debilitation to be in effect. "From this it will be clear that planets in a particular sign, and in a particular pada alone should be considered as exalted or debilitated, and to speak of exaltation or Debilitation other than the said pada will not be correct. Planets moving in a star, gets its exaltation level 50 minutes before approaching the stipulated degree level to exhibit a brilliant light and again attains the normal original brightness 50 minutes after leaving before the same stipulated degree levels." The author then goes on to say: "In the same way debilitation needs to be understood. To repeat, a planet moving in a sign if it is its exaltation house, one should not be blind to say that planet is exalted. Similarly debilitation. That is a planet is exalted at a particular degree level only, and that planet is moving in it exaltation sign are two different things. Such observations contrary to the real, not only of exaltation - debilitation, but several other matters in astrology only make this Astro science a sick one. No doctor can cure such sickness. A deep search and to arrive at the truth alone can cure this malady." Later on in this same chapter, the author addresses the fact that the "devil in the astrologer" often gives a blanket reading, and that the astrologer may have made some serious errors (for what could have and should have resulted in a happy marriage), by misrepresenting the real truths behind the concept of debilitation, and thereby spoiling the marital match by declaring it an unfit match through his reading. The result was that the marriage never took place when it should have, and in fact, the union could have resulted in a happy marriage, but never stood the chance due to the Astrologer. In my opinion, these are errors that we must all, as serious and conscientious astrologers, concern ourselves with when reading for a client. Only by addressing these subtleties publicly, will we all be made more aware of the same, more conscientious, and finally more attentive to details.

Four Ways to Judge the Strength of a Planet


Strength by House

1. A planet gives, first and foremost, the results of the strength of the house occupied by the planet, and secondly by the owner of the house. 2. When determining the house strengths, the angles or angular houses are first in strength; 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th, followed by the succedent houses: 2nd, 5th, 8th, and 11th, and lastly the cadent houses: 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th. 3. The owners of houses 6, 8, or 12, (and these are counted from ANY particular house to be assessed) become weak, evil, or malefic in effects.

Strength

by

Sign

1. A planet is strong when it is in its own or exalted sign. A planet is weak when it is afflicted, and/or in its detriment or fall (debilitated) sign. 2. The nature of the sign, for example, cardinal, fixed, or movable, fire, earth, air or water sign, fruitful or barren sign, human or bestial sign, mute or voice sign, masculine or feminine sign, on the cusp of the planet posited there, influences the affairs of the house and the planet.

Strength

by

Aspect

1. A planet is in conjunction with, associated with, or aspected by a malefic. For example, the owner of the 6th, 8th, or 12th, becomes weak and afflicted. 2. An aspecting planet modifies the results of the house matters according to its natural benefic or malefic, friendly or inimical state.

Nakshatra

System

1. A planet becomes strong if its Star Lord is strong by House, Sign, and Aspect; and it will be in a position to give the results indicated by its Star Lord to the desired extent. 2. A planet becomes weak if its Star Lord is weak by House, Sign, and Aspect, and it will not be in a position to give the results indicated by its Star Lord to the desired extent.

In KP, how are we to judge how the planets will react in any given situation?
10. A planet moving in a star is primarily under the influence of the lord of that star, and the planet will predominately give the results of the house the star lord occupies, in addition to the house(s) owned by the star lord. Then, the planet itself will offer the results of the house it occupies and the house(s) it owns. Assess both the star lord and the planet to determine the nature of the event.

11.

Rasi Chart

12. For a client with an Aries lagna, Venus is lord of the 2nd and 7th houses. During a Venus dasa, we can say that marriage will take place as both the 2nd and 7th houses are significators for marriage, as is Venus. Dasa lord Venus is posited in Scorpio at 20 degrees 21 minutes, in the star of Jyeshta, which is ruled by Mercury, making Mercury the star lord of Venus. (If unfamiliar with stars and subs, please see # 160 in the Star and Sub Lord Table). Now we must determine how Venus will function, and how it will react to the prospect of marriage.

So what are the functions of Venus dasa Venus bhukti chart?

in this example

Venus is posited in the Nakshatra of Jyeshta, which is ruled by Mercury. Mercury is posited in the 5th house, and is the lord of the 3rd and the 6th houses. This means that Venus will be

under the influence and control of the planet Mercury, therefore Venus is compelled - by Mercury - to give the results of the 5th house because Mercury is posited in the 5th house. In addition to the 5th house, Mercury lords the 3rd and the 6th, therefore Venus - in her dasa will predominately offer the results of the 5th, 3rd, and 6th houses - the houses of her star lord, Mercury.

Because Venus lords the 2nd and the 7th, Venus will be very attentive to - and concerned with - the matters revolving around the event of marriage, and therefore will indulge herself to initiate the marital ceremony by engaging in a love affair. Why? Because she is under the influence of Mercury - lord of the 3rd and 6th - but Mercury is occupying the 5th house of love affairs. So Mercury influences Venus - who is lord of the 2nd and 7th houses of marriage - to submit to the matters of the 5th house first (where Mercury is posited - 5th suggests love affairs) and therefore entices Venus into a love affair that ultimately results in a marriage. However, after some time, Mercury - being lord of the 6th house (and now giving the secondary results of lordship - remember Mercury owns the 6th - which is 12th to the 7th house of marriage), so Mercury now initiates phase 2 of his plan for Venus - which is to separate the couple through 6th house matters (debts, conflict, etc.). So now Mercury's function, once again, is to lead the stage for divorce proceedings to follow.

So here you can see how several matters with respect to marriage are built in to both involve the dasa lord and the star lord, but according to the event matter, the house results are the only ones that manifest. So in summation, dasa and bhukti lord Venus is lord of the 2nd and 7th houses, and posited in the 8th. Mercury, the star lord of Venus, is posited in the 5th house and owns the 3rd and 6th houses. With all that in mind, we can now see how Venus is connected to offer the results of the 8th, 2nd, 7th, 5th, 6th, and 3rd houses. Venus will predominately offer the results of its star lord Mercury, and Mercury's position in the 5th house to initiate an affair, followed by Mercury's lordship of the 6th and 3rd houses, and then move on to the results of the 2nd and 7th houses of Venus, and also the 8th where Venus resides. So for deciding the matter of marriage, the 2nd and the 7th are the permanent residence for Venus - as Venus has lordship over these two houses - while the 8th house is where Venus takes up temporary residence. Then, the 5th, 6th, and the 3rd houses of Mercury are the ones controlling and compelling Venus to respond to the matters of the 5th, 6th, and 3rd. Therefore, when the Venus dasa and bhukti is operating in this chart, Venus will first let you know (by lordship) that the matters will revolve around Marriage because the dasha/bhukti lord owns the 2nd and the 7th houses, and then that the results will manifest according to the position and then lordship of the star lord of Venus - which is Mercury. So much falls in the hands of the planet that is star lord of the dasa/bhukti that is running. See KP: Timing: Transits and Dasas

Aspect Table

1. When the aspect is formed between Sun or Moon and another planet, a 10 orb may be allowed; and between Sun and Moon, and orb of 12. 2. When two planets occupy the same degree of declination, whether North or South, they are in parallel position. Like the conjunction, its nature is variable and an orb of 1 only is allowed. 3. A separating aspect is stronger than an applying one, because its effects have already manifested; while the effects of an applying aspect have not yet fully materialized. 4. One can resist against the evils of a separating bad aspect, but it is not possible to resist against the evils of an applying bad aspect.

Basic Preliminaries to Chart Analysis


These instructions are basic guidelines that I have used for myself when delineating a chart through the KP Stellar System. For a thorough comprehension of what follows, you should have a basic understanding and grounding in Vedic and Western Astrology principles and aspects, and this basic foundational understanding should precede any attempts at delineating a chart KP style. If you are new to Vedic Astrology, you should first begin to familiarize yourself with many of the basic principles needed to understand Vedic Astrology and then move into KP. Although many of the concepts of Vedic Astrology differ from KP Stellar Astrology, certain principles remain standard throughout (such as exaltation/debilitation, friendship/animosity, etc.). So begin by reviewing the material available in the KP Workshop and become familiar with the Star & Sub Lord Table as that is the back drop from which you will work.

For constructing a KP Chart, use the Table of Yearly KP Ayanamsha's for the Years 1900-2052, and if unsure of the correct settings in your software to enable you to construct a KP Chart, check out Constructing a KP Chart using various Astrological Software. And lastly, before investing too much time on a chart, check to make sure that both the birth time and your calculations are correct. After having the above in place, grab your chart. Keep in mind that the "time" that certain events take place in an individual's life, is during the particular activation period addressed by the Dasa, Antardasha (Bhukti), and Pratyantardasha Lords that are running at any given time and that activate those particular events/matters through their Star Lords. These time periods are based on the Vimshottari Dasa system using the KP Ayanamsha. So if you are new to KP analysis, a good starting point may be to begin the learning process by referring to your own Horoscope. Look back at any given time period in question to reflect on past events, and see if you can actually " see" their happenings during the time frame the event actually occurred, based on the running sequence of Dasas (Mahadasha, Bhukti, and Pratyantardasha, and their Star and Sub Lords, aspects, etc ..) Don't forget the aspects, as they are the modifiers! See KP Aspects: Principles of Judgment for more information.

KP

Chart

Analysis

The most promising and clearest material that I have found for covering all bases when analyzing a KP chart are from the material in Bhatt's Nakshatra Chintamani, which is what the following methodology is primarily based on:

General

Instructions

1. For judging any matter in the horoscope pertaining to any particular house, bear in mind the general principle that a planet gives the results of its star lord. See KP: How Does the Dasa Lord Function? 2. Give importance to the cuspal Sub Lord of the house to be judged, for example, treat it as an ordinary planet. See KP: Significance of Cuspal Sublords. 3. Note its Star Lord and note the Sign and House occupied by the Star Lord. 4. Remember the general rule that each sign corresponds to a particular house, for example, Aries for the 1st house, Libra for the 7th house, etc.. Also bear in mind that each house corresponds to a particular Sign, for example, the 1st house represents Aries, the 8th house Scorpio, etc. 5. Remember the characteristics, for example, personal appearance, disposition, disease, occupation, and matters governed or dominated by each Sign and Planet. 6. Combine (synthesize and integrate) the influence of the Star Lord, with that of the Sign and House occupied by the Star Lord (suitable as the case may be), and follow the suit with respect to the Cuspal Sub Lord also. 7. The strength of the Cuspal Sub Lord of the house should also be examined for the affairs or the matters pertaining to that house. See KP: General Strength of a Planet.

Joint

Period

Rulers

1. The period or Sub period ruler, meaning Mahadasha and Antardasha ( Bhukti) Lords will give results according to its natural rulership over certain affairs of life, for example, Venus is the chief governor of peace or harmony, marriage, vehicles, happiness, etc.

2. Whether these period lords give favorable or unfavorable results of their Star Lord is determined by the Sub Lord, and then according to whether the Sub Lord is favorable or unfavorable. See KP: Planet or House: Harmonious or Detrimental.

3. The Mahadasha, Bhukti, and Pratyantardasha lords may each signify matters of different houses, for example different subject matters, both desirable and undesirable. So during their joint periods, they will give the results of the common subject matter, either desirable or undesirable, as the case may be.

For example, suppose the Dasa Lord is the significator of the 2nd, 5th, or 11th, and 1st, 4th, or 10th (indicating childbirth, and also its denial), then during the Sub period ( Bhukti) of the significator of the 1st, 4th, or 10th, there will be no child birth, and if there is already a child, then separation from the child is likely; and during the Sub period ( Bhukti) of the significator of the 2nd, 5th, or 11th, the birth of a child will take place.

4. If the Star Lord (of the Mahadasha Lord) occupies the 6th, 8th, or 12th as counted from its own sign (house), then the period or Sub period ruler (Mahadasha or Bhukti Lords) will not give favorable results of this house (owned by its Star Lord.)

5. If the planet and its Star Lord are in the 6th, 8th, and 12th signs from one another, the native will not get the results to his/her desired extent during their joint period.

6. If the Star Lord of the Mahadasha or Bhukti Lord is retrograde, the native will experience ups and downs in general.

7. The joint period rulers generally give the results of the house or houses owned by their Star Lords, so their strength will depend upon the strength of their Star Lords. ( See General Strength of a Planet). 8. If the joint period rulers (Mahadasha and Bhukti Lords) are in mutual reception (exchanging signs), or in conjunction or in aspect with one another, they influence the affairs of one another. This is based on the principle that a planet in conjunction with - or aspected by the significator - gives the results of the house or houses denoted by that significator.

9. If the joint rulers (Dasa Lords) of the cusps of any house are the significators for the matters signified by that house, the combined period of these joint rulers gives the results of the same matter during the period of any other significator of that house, and in the Sub period of the Cuspal Sub Lord of that house, the results of the same matter are obtained.

Transit

and

Joint

Period

Rulers

1. An event usually happens during the joint period (Dasa/Bhukti) of the significators when the transit agrees. 2. At the time of the event, Sun, Moon, and/or joint period rulers are generally found to be transiting in: (a) The Star or Sub of the same joint period ruler or rulers, for example, in the Star or Sub of the Mahadasha, Bhukti, Antardasa, and/or Sookshma period ruler, or

(b) In the Star of the significator of that event (other than the dasa rulers) in the Horoscope.

Cuspal

Matters

and

Joint

Period

Rulers

1. (a) In the example Birth Horoscope, see Chart for Bhatt's Horoscope #1, the Sub Lord of the 2nd cusp is Mars. It is in the Star of Ketu and in the Sub of Venus. After retirement from service the native

received a good amount towards gratuity on June 27, 1970, during the joint period of Mars, Ketu, and Venus. (b) Houses 2, 6, and 11 are for monetary gain. Now the Cuspal Sub Lord of the 2nd (Mars) is the owner of the 11th house, which is vacant. Its Star Lord, Ketu, represents Moon in the 2nd, Mercury owning the 6th, and Mars (Ketu's Star Lord) owning the 11th. So Mars is connected with; see KP: A Planet or House "Connected With" the 2nd, 6th, and 11th, and promises finance to the native. Its Sub Lord Venus owns the 10th and occupies the 6th, so it is harmonious to the matters indicated by the Star Lord (Ketu) So Mars, in its Dasa period, gives monetary gain to the native, and it may be realized during the joint period (Dasa) of the planet Mars, the Star Lord Ketu, and the Sub Lord Venus. (c) It may therefore be said that if the Cuspal Sub Lord of a house is the significator of the matter signified by that house, then this matter will materialize during the period of the Cuspal Sub Lord. (d) On June 27, 1970 the Moon was transiting in Pisces at 24 degrees 00 minutes in the Sub Mars (the period ruler) while Venus in Cancer at 19 degrees 00 minutes was in the Sub of Ketu ( the Sub period ruler), and Ketu was in Leo 12 degrees 33 minutes in its own Star.

2. (a) In the example Chart for Bhatt's Horoscope #1, the Ascendant is jointly ruled by Saturn, Moon, and Rahu. They are all significators of the 1st and 6th: Saturn owning the 1st in the Star of the Sun, who is posited in the 6th; Moon and Rahu both are in the Star of Mercury which owns the 6th and aspects the Ascendant.

The native suffered from asthmatic conditions and remained in bad health during the the Dasa joint periods of Moon, Rahu, and Saturn, which was around October 16, 1957 to January 12, 1958, and again during the joint Dasas of Moon, Saturn, and Rahu from around May 1, 1961 through July 28, 1961.

(b) It may, therefore, be said that if the joint rulers of the Cusp of any House are the significators of the matter signified by that house, then the combined period (Dasa) of these period lords will give the results of the same matter.

(c) The Native may suffer from sickness or disease during the Sub Periods of the significators of the 1st and 6th, the 1st and 8th, or the 1st and 12th, in the Dasa of the significator of the 6th. He recovers during the Sub Periods of the significators of the 1st, the 5th, or the 11th. He becomes a victim to the disease in the Sub Periods of the significators of the Badhaka and Maraka houses. The Sign and House occupied by the Star Lord of the Sub Period Ruler (Bhukti Lord) show the sensitive part of the body and the nature of the disease.

In the example Chart for Bhatt's Horoscope #1 the period ruler is Moon and the Sub Period (Bhukti) Ruler Rahu is in the Star of Mercury in Cancer, while the Pratyantardasha Lord, Saturn, is in the Sun's Star in Gemini.

Gemini governs lungs, it shows bronchitis, asthma, etc. Cancer denotes stomach and it is a watery sign, so it indicates weak digestive power, cold, cough, and asthma.

Transit Observations
Using the example of KP Chart for Bhatt's Horoscope 1 (below), let us observe what we should be looking for with respect to transiting planets, and what effects they will impact through their transit placements in different areas of the chart.

Lets first track the Sun. In KP Chart for Bhatt's Horoscope 1, we note that the Sun is significator for the affairs of houses 10, 6, 3, 12, and 8. Therefore, whenever any planet transits in the star area of the Sun, it will influence the matters signified by houses 10, 6, 3, 12, and 8.

For example: Look at the KP Star and Sub Lord Table and note that the Star area of the Sun involves the Nakshatras of Krittika, U. Phalguni, and Uttarashadha. The exact degrees of these areas owned by the Sun are 26 degrees Aries 40 minutes to 10 degrees Taurus 00 minutes, 26 degrees Leo 40 minutes to 10 Virgo degrees 00 minutes, and 26 degrees Sagittarius 40 minutes to 10 degrees Capricorn 00 minutes. These are the Star areas of the Sun. So whenever a planet transits in these same Star area owned by the Sun, because the Sun is significator for the 10th, 6th, 3rd, 12th, and 8th houses in this Chart, the planet transiting through this area will have influence over the affairs of the houses that the Sun is significator for, or in other words, houses 10, 6, 3, 12, and 8. The Table below will easily give reference to what areas will be affected in the KP Chart for Bhatt's Horoscope 1 when a planet transits in the various Star areas of each planet. SeeBhatt's Effective Significator's Table below the Transit Table 1.

To personalize the Transit Table when analyzing charts - either your own or another's - just change the houses in Column 4 ('Will Impact Houses') to reflect the significators of the chart you are currently working on. I have included a link to blank Transit Tables I and II at the bottom of this article, for your convenience when working on a chart of your choice.

KP Bhatt's Horoscope #1

Transit Table 1

Using the Table above, we can see that when any planet transits in the Star of Rahu, it will influence houses 2, 6, 7, and 9 the houses Rahu signifies in this chart.

In this Horoscope, health issues are indicated, and Saturn, Venus, Moon, and Rahu are significators of ill health (house 6). Their Sub Lords are also malefic due to the fact that they are connected with either house 6 or 8 or both. So Saturn, Venus, Moon and Rahu are strongly evil for matters affecting the health.

Therefore, the planets transiting in the Star areas of Saturn, Venus, Moon, and/or Rahu will not have a good effect on the natives health.

In this Horoscope, the native is running a joint period (dasa) of Ra/Ra/Sa from October 8, 1973 through March 12, 1974. So the planets transiting in the Star area of Rahu and/or Saturn will give the same results indicated by the Dasa of Ra/Ra/Sa if the Sub Lords of these transiting planets are not

detrimental to the matters indicated by the Dasa period rulers* for example, the Dasa of Rahu. See below...

Bhatt's Book: Horoscope #1 Effective Significator Table

Therefore, the planets transiting in the Star area (Nakshatra) of Rahu and/or Saturn will give the same results that are indicated by the Dasa of Ra/Ra/Sa if the Sub Lords of these transiting planets are not detrimental to the matters indicated by the Dasa period rulers - for example - the Dasa period of Rahu.

This indicates that Rahu and Saturn are not favorable for the health of this native. Therefore, during his Ra/Ra Dasa, between the dates of approximately November 20, 1973 and December 2, 1973 when the Sun was transiting in Scorpio, between 03 degrees 20 minutes and 16 degrees 40 minutes in the Star of Saturn, and in particular during the Subs of Saturn ( Saturn is the significator for the 6th and 8th houses), Mercury (Mercury is the significator for the 1st and 6th houses), and Ketu (significator for the Maraka 7th house and the Badhaka 11th house), the native suffered a great deal from asthmatic conditions. Do pay attention to the position of the transiting planets and to the Sub Lords of these transiting planets. You can personalize Transit Table I and Transit Table II (see Tables below) for your own

chart, or the chart that you are currently working on. For your convenience, I have constructed Table Table II (below) to enable you to easily list the transit positions of the planets ( and their Star and Sub Lords), enabling you to more easily track transit activity in any given chart. Remember to pay attention to the Sub Lords of these transiting planets to ensure that they are not detrimental to the matters indicated by the Dasa period rulers.

This Table below can be used in conjunction with the blank Transit Table I that follows Transit Table II. In Table I, you only need to fill in the appropriate house numbers in column 4 - to do that just check which house each planet is significator for, and fill in column 4 " Will Impact Houses".

Back to KP Methodology for Chart Analysis


In the Horoscope, a sign is on the cusp of each house. A planet occupies the sign, and planetary strength is determined accordingly - as it occupies its own sign, exalted sign or debilitated sign. So the occupant in a sign is stronger than the owner of the sign. The sign is the 1/12th part of the Zodiac, while the Constellation or Star is stronger than the sign. Hence the planet in the star is stronger than its Star Lord (which may be either the occupant or the owner of the sign). The occupant (planet) in a sign mostly gives the results of the house occupied by it. So the planet in the star better gives the results of the house occupied by its Star Lord.

Keeping these principles (above) in mind, the order or strength of the significators of each house should 1. Planet be in the determined Occupants by: Star:

A planet in the Star of the occupant of a house is stronger than the occupant. So it should be given first preference as a significator of that house, because it is strongest to give the results of the house occupied by its Star lord. The occupant remains as a weak significators of 2. that house. Occupant:

If there is no planet in the occupants Star, the occupant becomes the strong significator of that house and it is strong to give the results of that house. So the second preference should be given to the occupant 3. Planet of in the that Owners house. Star:

If the house is vacant, the planet in the Star of the owner of a house is stronger than the owner. So it becomes a strong significator of that house and it is strong to give the results of that house. Hence the third preference should be given to the planet in the owners Star and the owner remains a weak significator 4. of that house. Owner:

If the house is vacant and if there is no planet in the owners Star, the owner itself becomes the strong significator of that house and it is strong to give the results of that house. So the 4th preference should 5. (a) be Planet given in to the owner of Or that house. Aspect:

Conjunction

A planet in conjunction or association with, or aspected by a significator gives the results of the or aspect with that significator.

house or houses denoted by that significator. So the last preference should be given to the planet in conjunction (b)

A planet aspecting the house may be considered as the significator of that house.

6. A planet in the Star of the planet aspecting the house. For example: Say Saturn in the 5th aspects the 7th, 11th, and 2nd. So the planet in the Star of Saturn will give the results of the 2nd, 7th, and 11th.

Rasi Chart

Planetary Effects
In KP, how are we to judge how the planets will react in any given situation?
A planet moving in a star is primarily under the influence of the lord of that star, and the planet will predominately give the results of the house the star lord occupies, in addition to the house(s) owned by the star lord. Then, the planet itself will offer the results of the house it occupies and the house(s) it owns. Assess both the star lord and the planet to determine the nature of the event.

Rasi Chart
For a client with an Aries lagna, Venus is lord of the 2nd and 7th houses. During a Venus dasa, we can say that marriage will take place as both the 2nd and 7th houses are significators for marriage, as is Venus. Dasa lord Venus is posited in Scorpio at 20 degrees 21 minutes, in the star of Jyeshta, which is ruled by Mercury, making Mercury the star lord of Venus. (If unfamiliar with stars and subs, please see # 160 in the Star and Sub Lord Table).

Now we must determine how Venus will function, and how it will react to the prospect of marriage.

So what are the functions of Venus dasa Venus bhukti in this example chart?
Venus is posited in the Nakshatra of Jyeshta, which is ruled by Mercury. Mercury is posited in the 5th house, and is the lord of the 3rd and the 6th houses. This means that Venus will be under the influence and control of the planet Mercury, therefore Venus is compelled - by Mercury - to give the results of the 5th house because Mercury is posited in the 5th house. In addition to the 5th house, Mercury lords the 3rd and the 6th, therefore Venus - in her dasa - will predominately offer the results of the 5th, 3rd, and 6th houses the houses of her star lord, Mercury.

Because Venus lords the 2nd and the 7th, Venus will be very attentive to - and concerned with - the matters revolving around the event of marriage, and therefore will indulge herself to initiate the marital ceremony by engaging in a love affair. Why? Because she is under the influence of Mercury lord of the 3rd and 6th - but Mercury is occupying the 5th house of love affairs. So Mercury influences Venus - who is lord of the 2nd and 7th houses of marriage - to submit to the matters of the 5th house

first (where Mercury is posited - 5th suggests love affairs) and therefore entices Venus into a love affair that ultimately results in a marriage. However, after some time, Mercury - being lord of the 6th house (and now giving the secondary results of lordship - remember Mercury owns the 6th - which is 12th to the 7th house of marriage), so Mercury now initiates phase 2 of his plan for Venus - which is to separate the couple through 6th house matters (debts, conflict, etc.). So now Mercury's function, once again, is to lead the stage for divorce proceedings to follow.

So here you can see how several matters with respect to marriage are built in to both involve the dasa lord and the star lord, but according to the event matter, the house results are the only ones that manifest. So in summation, dasa and bhukti lord Venus is lord of the 2nd and 7th houses, and posited in the 8th. Mercury, the star lord of Venus, is posited in the 5th house and owns the 3rd and 6th houses. With all that in mind, we can now see how Venus is connected to offer the results of the 8th, 2nd, 7th, 5th, 6th, and 3rd houses. Venus will predominately offer the results of its star lord Mercury, and Mercury's position in the 5th house to initiate an affair, followed by Mercury's lordship of the 6th and 3rd houses, and then move on to the results of the 2nd and 7th houses of Venus, and also the 8th where Venus resides. So for deciding the matter of marriage, the 2nd and the 7th are the permanent residence for Venus - as Venus has lordship over these two houses - while the 8th house is where Venus takes up temporary residence. Then, the 5th, 6th, and the 3rd houses of Mercury are the ones controlling and compelling Venus to respond to the matters of the 5th, 6th, and 3rd.

Therefore, when the Venus dasa and bhukti is operating in this chart, Venus will first let you know (by lordship) that the matters will revolve around Marriage because the dasha/bhukti lord owns the 2nd and the 7th houses, and then that the results will manifest according to the position and then lordship of the star lord of Venus - which is Mercury. So much falls in the hands of the planet that is star lord of the dasa/bhukti that is running. See KP: Timing: Transits and Dasas

Transit Observations
Using the example of KP Chart for Bhatt's Horoscope 1 (below), let us observe what we should be looking for with respect to transiting planets, and what effects they will impact through their transit placements in different areas of the chart.

Lets first track the Sun. In KP Chart for Bhatt's Horoscope 1, we note that the Sun is significator for the affairs of houses 10, 6, 3, 12, and 8. Therefore, whenever any planet transits in the star area of the Sun, it will influence the matters signified by houses 10, 6, 3, 12, and 8.

For example: Look at the KP Star and Sub Lord Table and note that the Star area of the Sun involves the Nakshatras of Krittika, U. Phalguni, and Uttarashadha. The exact degrees of these areas owned by the Sun are 26 degrees Aries 40 minutes to 10 degrees Taurus 00 minutes, 26 degrees Leo 40 minutes to 10 Virgo degrees 00 minutes, and 26 degrees Sagittarius 40 minutes to 10 degrees Capricorn 00 minutes. These are the Star areas of the Sun. So whenever a planet transits in these same Star area owned by the Sun, because the Sun is significator for the 10th, 6th, 3rd, 12th, and 8th houses in this Chart, the planet transiting through this area will have influence over the affairs of the houses that the Sun is significator for, or in other words, houses 10, 6, 3, 12, and 8. The Table below will easily give reference to what areas will be affected in the KP Chart for Bhatt's

Horoscope 1 when a planet transits in the various Star areas of each planet. SeeBhatt's Effective Significator's Table below the Transit Table 1.

To personalize the Transit Table when analyzing charts - either your own or another's - just change the houses in Column 4 ('Will Impact Houses') to reflect the significators of the chart you are currently working on. I have included a link to blank Transit Tables I and II at the bottom of this article, for your convenience when working on a chart of your choice.

KP Bhatt's Horoscope #1

Transit Table 1

Using the Table above, we can see that when any planet transits in the Star of Rahu, it will influence houses 2, 6, 7, and 9 the houses Rahu signifies in this chart.

In this Horoscope, health issues are indicated, and Saturn, Venus, Moon, and Rahu are significators of ill health (house 6). Their Sub Lords are also malefic due to the fact that they are connected with either house 6 or 8 or both. So Saturn, Venus, Moon and Rahu are strongly evil for matters affecting the health.

Therefore, the planets transiting in the Star areas of Saturn, Venus, Moon, and/or Rahu will not have a good effect on the natives health.

In this Horoscope, the native is running a joint period (dasa) of Ra/Ra/Sa from October 8, 1973 through March 12, 1974. So the planets transiting in the Star area of Rahu and/or Saturn will give the same results indicated by the Dasa of Ra/Ra/Sa if the Sub Lords of these transiting planets are not

detrimental to the matters indicated by the Dasa period rulers* for example, the Dasa of Rahu. See below...

Bhatt's Book: Horoscope #1 Effective Significator Table

Therefore, the planets transiting in the Star area (Nakshatra) of Rahu and/or Saturn will give the same results that are indicated by the Dasa of Ra/Ra/Sa if the Sub Lords of these transiting planets are not detrimental to the matters indicated by the Dasa period rulers - for example - the Dasa period of Rahu.

This indicates that Rahu and Saturn are not favorable for the health of this native. Therefore, during his Ra/Ra Dasa, between the dates of approximately November 20, 1973 and December 2, 1973 when the Sun was transiting in Scorpio, between 03 degrees 20 minutes and 16 degrees 40 minutes in the Star of Saturn, and in particular during the Subs of Saturn ( Saturn is the significator for the 6th and 8th houses), Mercury (Mercury is the significator for the 1st and 6th houses), and Ketu (significator for the Maraka 7th house and the Badhaka 11th house), the native suffered a great deal from asthmatic conditions. Do pay attention to the position of the transiting planets and to the Sub Lords of these transiting planets. You can personalize Transit Table I and Transit Table II (see Tables below) for your own

chart, or the chart that you are currently working on. For your convenience, I have constructed Table Table II (below) to enable you to easily list the transit positions of the planets (and their Star and Sub Lords), enabling you to more easily track transit activity in any given chart. Remember to pay attention to the Sub Lords of these transiting planets to ensure that they are not detrimental to the matters indicated by the Dasa period rulers.

Also see KP FAQ and KP Notebook

1. The significator, see KP: Order of Significators, shows the source of an event. The matters especially of the house or houses owned by it, serve as the source. 2. The significator gives the results of its Star Lord. So the Star Lord becomes the indicator of the matters of the house occupied and owned by it, and also of the house aspected by it. 3. The Sub Lord of the significator is the deciding factor regarding the matters of the Star Lord.

If the Sub Lord is harmonious to the matters indicated by the Star Lord, the significator gives favorable, desired, or expected results If the Sub Lord is detrimental to the matters indicated by the Star Lord, the significator does not give favorable, desired, or expected results.

Table of Houses for Different Subject Matters

Consider the Houses for the respective subject matter shown in the above Table. If the subject matter of the Houses shown in Column A are to be judged, then the subject matter of the Houses shown in Column B will become detrimental, and vice-versa. Suppose Sun is the significator (in the Star of the occupant or owner) of 4, 11, and 12, and the Sub Lord of Sun is not connected with 4, 11, or 12 but IS connected with 10, 5, and 3, then Sun will not be in a position to give the desired or expected results of 4, 11, and 12.

4. The significator gives during its Dasa, Bhukti, and Pratyantardasha, the results of its Star Lord, or 5. The results of the Star Lord are experienced during the joint period (Dasa, Bhukti, of the significator, its Star Lord, and its Sub Lord.

Pratyantardasha)

6. The significator denotes the time when it will give the results of its Star Lord. The Sub Lord of the significator 7. shows whether desired results or otherwise will be obtained.

The significator becomes weak if its Star Lord is weak, and more so if its Sub Lord is also weak.

Rahu

and

Ketu

as Agents or Representatives

Rahu and Ketu are not allotted the ownership of any sign. They are occupants of the sign in a house. So Rahu and Ketu work as agents, or representatives for the following:

1. The planet with whom they are in conjunction with, or aspect. 2. The owner of the Sign in which they are placed.

Example: See Birth Horoscope 1 (above) (a) Rahu occupies the 2nd house, it is conjoining the Moon, which owns the 7th and occupies the 2nd. So Rahu will work as an agent of the Moon, and will signify the matters of the 2nd and 7th houses. (b) Rahu is aspected by Mars, who owns the 4th and the 11th, and occupies the 7th. So Rahu will indicate the matters of the 4th, 7th, and 11th as an agent for Mars. (c) Rahu occupies the sign of Pisces owned and aspected by Jupiter, who owns the 3rd and the 12th, and occupies the 10th. so as an agent for Jupiter, Rahu will denote the matters of the 3rd, 10th, and 12th houses.

(d) Ketu occupies the 8th house, is aspected by the Moon who owns the the 7th and occupies the 2nd. So acting as proxy or as an agent for the Moon, Ketu will signify the matters of the 2nd, 7th, and 8th. (e) Ketu is posited in Virgo in Mercury's sign. Mercury owns the 6th and the 9th, and is posited in the 7th. Therefore Ketu, acting as an agent for Mercury, will signify the matters of the 6th, 7th, and 9th.

2.

Rahu

and

Ketu

as

Planet

Keeping in view the above rule and the rule that a planet gives the results indicated by its Star Lord, we may say that Rahu and Ketu give: (1) (2) (3) (4) The results of the Planet it is conjoined with It gives the results of the Planet(s) aspecting it It gives the results of its own Star Lord, and It gives the results of the owner of the Sign occupied by it.

Example:

From

Birth

Horoscope

#1

(a) Rahu is conjoining the Moon, so it will first give the results of the Moon - for example - the matters signified by the 2nd and 7th houses. (b) Suppose that Rahu is not in conjunction or in aspect with any planet...then Rahu will indicate the results of its star lord, Mercury, and the matters signified by houses 6, 7, and 9. (c) Ketu is not conjoining any planet, but it is aspected by the Moon. So Ketu will give the results of the Moon.

3.

Rahu

and

Ketu

as

Star

Lords

If any planet is in the star of Rahu or Ketu, that planet will signify the matters of the house occupied by Rahu or Ketu; that planet will indicate the matters of the house owned and occupied by the Star lord of Rahu or Ketu; and that planet will denote the matters of the house occupied and owned by the owner of the sign occupied by Rahu or Ketu.Example: From Birth Horoscope #1 (a) Mars is in the star of Ketu which is posited in the 8th. So Mars gives the results of the 8th house. (b) The star lord of Ketu is Mars, and Mars is posited in the 7th, and owns the 4th and the 11th. So Mars will give the results of the 4th, 7th, and 11th houses.

(c) Ketu is posited in Virgo in the sign owned by Mercury - who is posited in the 7th and owns the 6th and the 9th. So Mars will give the results of houses 6, 7, and 9.

4. Rahu/Ketu

as

Significators

Example From Birth Horoscope #1

(a) Rahu represents the Moon, Mars, and Jupiter. So Rahu should be given preference when we have to consider Moon, Mars, or Jupiter as significator for that matter under consideration, rather than the Moon, Mars, or Jupiter. (b) Similarly, Ketu represents the Moon and Mercury. So Ketu should be given preference as a significator in place of Moon or Mercury. Rahu and Ketu are stronger than any planet. So, if Rahu or Ketu represent any significator planet, then Rahu/Ketu should be given first preference as a significator, in place of that significator planet.

5.

Retrograde

Movement

of

Rahu

and

Ketu

Rahu and Ketu are not to be treated as retrograde planets, because their naturalmovement is in the opposite direction. Cuspal Sub Lord and its Subject Matter:

1. The Cuspal Sub Lord of a house indicates whether the matter signified by that house is promised or denied. 2. If the Cuspal Sub Lord of that house is the significator of that house or any one of the houses under consideration, the matter signified by that house will be promised. 3. As each house denotes several particular matters, the chief governor of the matter to be judged may be taken into consideration. If it is connected with the house or any one of the houses under consideration - especially with the Star Lord of the Cuspal Sub Lord, it is desirable. 4. The principle regarding the significators as explained in Order of Significators should always be kept in mind.

Time

of

Event:

If the Cuspal Sub Lord of a house promises the matter pertaining to that house, then only during the joint period (Dasa) of the significators of the matter signified by the house or houses under consideration, will the results of the matter be experienced.

Health Significators:
Ascendant: The degree rising on the cusp of the Ascendant is of great importance in
judging the health. It rules the body. The bodily strength and its power of resisting disease may be judged from the Ascendant. Sun: It rules the vitality, constitution of the body, and hereditary traits.

Moon: It rules the functional system of the body and the accidental characteristics arising
from the mode of living, climatic conditions, and habits. It is of primary importance in the case of a child. It is the particular significator of health in the chart of a woman.

6th House: It is a house of sickness, ailments and diseases. Disease is judged from the sign
on the cusp of the 6th, planets in the 6th, and the ruler of the 6th.

Thus Sun, Moon, Ascendant, the ruler of the Ascendant, the ruler of the 6th, and planets in the 6th are the significator's of health.

1. The signs occupied by Sun, Moon, Ascendant, the ruler of the ascendant, the ruler of the 6th and the 6th cusp denote the delicate parts of the body (each sign of the zodiac rules various parts of the body). 2. If Sun or Moon are afflicted by the malefics Mars, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, the signs occupied by the malefics indicate the delicate parts of the body. 3. The parts of the body denoted by the sign in or from which these bodies are heavily afflicted, become sensitive and easily subject to disorder. 4. If Sun is afflicted, it indicates lasting and hereditary diseases. If Moon is afflicted, ailments arise from time to time and they are more easily cured. 5. Afflictions to Moon are always serious in the chart of a female, while afflictions to Sun are serious in the case of a male.

House 4 denotes the end of life, the 8th house, death, and the 12th house hospitalization. So the signs on the cusps of these houses indicate sensitive parts of the body. If planets are afflicted in the 4th and 8th and especially in the 6th and 12th, the parts of the body ruled by the signs containing these planets will be easily subject to disorder.

If the significators of health are free from affliction, well placed by sign and house and well aspected, the health will be good. If the significators of health are well aspected by the benefics which are strong, the benefics will save the life and often ward off illness or sickness also. If they are weak by sign, house and aspect, no help can be expected from them.

If Sun, Moon, and the ruler if the Ascendant are in the 4th, 6th, 8th, or 12th, they indicate weak health throughout life. If they are in conjunction with the rulers of the 4th, 6th, 8th, or positions. 12th, these afflictions are worse than from other planets or

1. Jupiter and Venus become weak if they are rulers of 6, 8, or 12. 2. Retrograde planets whether benefic or malefic give very little help in disease.

3. Any aspects from Sun and Mars to other planets gives vitality. But if there are afflictions from Sun and Mars, there is likelihood of fever and accidents. 4. Afflictions for Uranus and Neptune have little vitalizing effect. They do not endanger life. 5. If Uranus is well aspected by Saturn, its good effect is felt in old age and not in youth. 6. Afflictions from Mars to Moon are worse than those between Mars and Sun. Afflictions from Saturn to Sun are worse than those between Saturn and Moon, because Mars and Moon, Saturn and Sun are of different natures. 7. Afflictions from a planet which is elevated are very difficult to overcome.

If malefics are placed in the houses 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, and 3 they cause accidents or acute and painful sickness. If they are placed in the houses 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 they cause long and tedious ailments.

If benefics are in the angles or in the houses 10, 11, 12, 1, 2. and 3, and if they are in good aspect to Moon, ailments will be curable.

Good aspects from Jupiter and Mars are favorable. But if they rule the 4th, 6th, 8th, or 12th and if they be in conjunction with Sun, Moon, and the ruler of the Ascendant, their benefic effect is lessened.

When fixed signs are on the angles, and planets are afflicted in common signs, disease can be overcome; when common signs are on the angles, and planets are afflicted in fixed signs, disease cannot be overcome.

Planets afflicted in fixed signs cause chronic and incurable disease: they bring with them a debt of destiny, which is usually most difficult to overcome. Disease is due to the actions done in a previous life.

Planets afflicted in cardinal signs denote acute pain. Recovery is speedy and there remains no symptom of disease. Planets afflicted in common signs denote that disease can be warded off, but it depends upon the mentality of the patient and in the course of time, the disease becomes chronic.

Significations

of

Health

and

Their

Afflictions:

The afflicting planet causes ailments according to its inherent nature. Neptune: It is abnormal and restricting in its action. When it afflicts the significator's of health (for example, Sun, Moon, Ascendant, ruler of the Ascendant and of the 6th, or planet in the 6th), it causes incurable ailments, psychic ailments, ailments arising from worry, fears, and through drugs and drinks, danger from poison or gas.

Uranus: It is spasmodic and irregular in action. When afflicting it causes incurable diseases, nervous breakdowns, sudden diseases and accidents, cramp, paralysis, ruptures. Saturn: It is limiting and obstructive in action. When afflicting it causes diseases for want of proper nourishment, chronic and lingering ailments, rheumatism, colds, chills, dull aches, falls, blows, sprains, dislocations, bruises.

Mars: It is inflammatory, energetic and excessive in action. When afflicting it causes sharp and sudden diseases, accidents, operations, ailments due to over-exertion and carelessness, fevers and inflammatory diseases, fistulas, disease affecting nose.

Jupiter: It is nourishing and expansive in action. When afflicting it causes blood disorder, ailments arising from excessive eating and indiscretion in diet, liver trouble, pleurisy, abscesses, quinsy(?), and gout.

Afflictions in Signs: Afflictions in any sign affect those signs in opposition or in square to it. If planets are afflicted in movable or cardinal signs they affect head, stomach, kidneys and skin. Diseases, for example, brain fever, epilepsy, sudden unconsciousness ( apoplexy); stomach trouble, cancer; kidney and liver troubles; rheumatism, gout and colds or chills.

Afflictions in fixed signs affect throat, heart, urine-genital organs and blood. Diseases, for example, tonsillitis, diphtheria, heart troubles, spinal ailments, piles, stones, ailments regarding urinary and generative organs; blood disorders.

Afflictions in common or mutable signs affect lungs, intestines, nerves and digestion. Diseases, for example, TB, bronchitis, asthma, intestinal diseases, rheumatism; dropsy, scurvy.

1. Only when there is a very strong desire to know the answer to a question (and it doesn't matter whether is is a question relating to something very minor or something very major), should a question be asked. Again I'll repeat - when there is a very strong urgency to know the answer, or the outcome of an event or situation, then and only then should you take it upon yourself to predict with the help of RP's (ruling planets), and at that time. Depending upon your KP skills, your prediction may just prove to be very correct. However, to be whimsical in your horary attempts, or to expect accurate results when you simply have a question, or a nonchalant curiosity arises out of the blue, and you idly follow up with an attempt to haphazardly proceed with the construction of a horary chart - and use the ruling planets to predict the status of the outcome - this is when there is a misuse of the way the RP's in a prashna/horary are meant to be referenced, and answers are faulty. So do yourself justice and wait until there is a sense of urgency, or the desire to know the answer is powerfully prevalent in your mind, and then proceed with the Horary and Ruling Planets. 2. Keep in mind that the Ruling Planet which is in the star or sub of a retrograde planet should be omitted (see overview of RP's at the bottom of the page under Ruling Planets.) The RP's which are in the stars and subs of retrograde planets should be avoided. Also, a retrograde ruling planet will only give the results when it ceases to be retrograde - or in other words - becomes direct in motion. 3. The sensitive degree (the degree of the sign on which the sign lord, star lord, sub lord, and sub sub lord all operate jointly or simultaneously) is important for the fulfillment of any question. So the question is fulfilled at the time when all of the RP's (ruling planets) are operating simultaneously or jointly. (Simultaneous or joint operation occurs when one of the RP's becomes the Sign Lord, one becomes the Star Lord, a third RP becomes the Sub Lord, and a fourth RP becomes a Sub Sub Lord). 4. If an event is likely to take place within 24 hours after the question is posed, take the transit of the Ascendant and count from the Ascending degree of the moment of the query. For example: Say that a (horary) question was asked on Thursday, August 28,

1969 at 3:25:47 PM IST and the specific coordinates were 23N02 72E35. The question asked was:

Question: When will the boss return to the office?

Horary Query

Ruling Planets: Day, Sign, & Star Lord Table Day, Sign, & Star Lord Table

Now to Delineate the Horary: "When will the boss return to the office?"

Rahu is acting as an agent for Saturn because Rahu was posited in the sign of Aquarius at this time. So the Ruling Planets for this horary question are Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, and Rahu. NOTE: (For the sake of simplicity, clarity, and for demonstration of the "timing purposes" in this example chart above and below, we will just pretend that all RP's in the charts are direct in motion and not retrograde. So in the chart below, when delineating by "strict KP rules", just pretend that Saturn is direct in motion - rather than retrograde - and Venus is therefore not in the star of a retrograde planet. This example below is fictitious, and simply included for comprehension and explanation only of the "timing" involved. If we were applying the KP written rules of a retrograde Saturn in a real case and following the KP Ruling on the same, we would have to eliminate Venus as a RP, and Saturn could only give results when Saturn went direct. However, from personal experience, my take is that the jury is still out on this retrograde verdict, so do keep in mind that in real life this "retrograde ruling" has - in all reality - become controversial by many professional astrologers - who have seen results materialize with retrogrades - many times in real life situations - myself included. So my advice to you is that you will personally need to evaluate many charts and keep a log, before forming an opinion one way or another on retrogrades. Consider this - if you take a good close look at some of the horary charts given as examples in the KP books that were written years ago, and actually calculate the example charts yourself, you will find many errors and you will also see that the KP author's were not always following this "retrograde ruling" - either because they didn't realize that there were retrograde planets involved as RP's, or their calculations - in the days prior to computers - were less than perfect. So keep an open mind on this retrograde factor until you have assessed enough charts to form a credible opinion for yourself one way or the other.) The question is a minor one, so with respect to point #4 above, the answer will be fulfilled in a short period of time. So considering that Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, and Rahu are the ruling planets for this query, the answer lies in searching for when these RP's will line up simultaneously and jointly as Sign, Star, Sub, and Sub Sub Lords for the rising cusp. So fudging around with the time that the question was asked, and counting from the Ascendant degree to the moment when this exact line-up will take place, we now can clearly see (below - Horary Transit Chart) that when the Ascendant moves from 13 Sag 29' 22" to 18 Sag 40' 59" (the sensitive degree), that this degree is exactly when all the Ruling Planets will line up perfectly. Now the horary query was asked at 03:25:47 PM in the afternoon, and we know now that the boss will return to the office approximately 22 minutes later - or between 03:47:30 PM and 03:48:47 PM. (As I mentioned above - the question must have importance and an urgency to know, in order to receive the answer...(So that is the time - [3:47:30 PM] that the employees needed to stop goofing around in the office and get back to work so they don't get in trouble with their boss why else would they be doing astrology in the office, instead of what they were hired for? :-))

5. If the event is expected to happen within a month, consider the transit of the Moon, and count from the sign being transited by the Moon at the moment of the query, to the time when the RP's line up in synchronicity - such as in the example shown above with the Ascendant, only using the position of the degree of the Moon rather than the Ascendant. Keep in mind that if the RP's line up - but the Moon is conjoined with Saturn at this time, you should reject that degree and move on because Saturn causes delays. So move ahead again. 6. Using the same principles as the Ascendant and Moon, if the event is to happen later than a month but within a year, look at the Sun's transit and count from the sign transited by the Sun at the moment of the query, to the time when the RP's line up in synchronicity, using the position of the degree of the Sun, rather than the Ascendant or the Moon. 7. Frequently, Ruling Planets are five in number. If confused about where to begin, consider the following. Out of these five ruling planets, the three RP's that you come across (at the earliest time) that are simultaneously running their joint/simultaneous

period of operation - should be considered first, and before the others. Leaving two RP's behind, the earlier time frame for the next one out of the two RP's left, should be considered first for the next position of the Sub Sub Lord. However, feel free to research this because you really must experiment and form your own opinions as to what works best for you based on your own personal experience with Horary, as there really are no hard and fast rules on this particular determination. Ruling Planets: Overview of RP's (ruling planets) can also be referenced at KP: Rectification of Birth Time & Ruling Planet: Jot down the time and day when a question is put to you or when you construct the horoscope for your analysis and judgment. The day begins from sunrise: Day Lords are: Sun governs Sunday, Moon - Monday, Mars - Tuesday, Mercury - Wednesday, Jupiter - Thursday, Venus - Friday, Saturn - Saturday.
The Ruling Planets are listed below in their Order of Preference:

1. The Star Lord of the Ascendant 2. The Sign Lord of the Ascendant 3. The Star Lord of the Moon 4. The Sign Lord of the Moon 5. The Day Lord These 5 Ruling Planets above are taken at the time of query or judgment. In addition to the above, some astrologers also consider the sub lords of both the Ascendant and the Moon. Rahu/Ketu and Ruling Planets: If Rahu or Ketu is conjoining or aspects a Ruling Planet, or if Rahu or Ketu is posited in a sign owned by one of the Ruling Planets, then Rahu and/or Ketu should be included as a Ruling Planet.

Timing
1. Events usually happen during the significator periods of the Dasas and Bhukti, and when the transit agrees. 2. At the time of the event, Sun, Moon, and/or Dasa period rulers are usually found to be transiting:

In the Star or Sub of the same Dasa Lords, such as in the Star or Sub of the Mahadasha, Bhukti, Pratyantardasha, and/or Sookshma period lords. In the Star of the significator (planetary significator) of that event (other than the joint period rulers) in the Horoscope."

The Mother of the native passed away on November 1, 1923 at about 2:00 PM IST, during the dasa of Ke/Ve/Ra/Ju. At the time the Sun was transiting 15 Libra 21' in the Star of the Pratyantardasha Lord (Rahu). Moon was at 08 Cancer 49' transiting in the Sub of Bhukti Lord Venus; Ketu was posited at 15 Aquarius 32 in Pratyantardasa Lord Rahu's Star; Venus was transiting 28 Libra 46' in the Star of Sookshma Lord Jupiter; Rahu was transiting 15 Leo 32' in the Star of Venus, and Jupiter was transiting 02 Scorpio 08' in its own Star.

Information

on

Transits

and

Charts

and

What to

Expect:

Transit in Stars: Saturn transits in one Star for approximately 13 months. Rahu/Ketu transit in

one Star for about 8 months. Jupiter transits in one Star for about 5 months and 10 days; Mars transits in one Star for about 20 days; Mercury and Venus are not very uniform in their in their motion, so tracking must be checked for them. The Sun is very regular in motion and stays in one star for about 13 days, while Moon stays put in one Star for about 24 hours.

Transit in Subs: Saturn, while transiting through one star, will remain in one sub for many weeks. Rahu, Ketu, and Jupiter remain in one sub for many days. The Sun remains in one sub for anywhere from 1 to 3 days, and the Moon remains in one sub for approximately 3 hours.

2.

Observe the influence of the transiting planets every year - most especially the transits of Saturn

because it is always of a longer duration. If the transits of Rahu, Ketu, and Jupiter coincide or cross paths with the influence of Saturn, there is a greater possibility of a particular event/occurrence.

What is not indicated in the Natal Chart cannot be expected to materialize in full or to the desired extent, during the period of the transiting planets. If it is supported in the Natal Chart, it holds more promise.

It is generally a smart practice is to observe the effects of the transits in relation to the dasas that are running, as outlined above in this tutorial.

3.

The point, is to get you to pay attention to the cumulative influence of the slow moving planets in

transit, such as, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, Jupiter, (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto also, if your preference is to include these in your assessments). Closely observe their effects during the time frame of anywhere from 5 to 13 months at a time, and familiarize yourself with their positions.

In the Natal Chart, some planets are the significators of marriage (2nd, 7th, and 11th), some are significators of money (2nd, 6th, and 11th); some are significators of loss of money (8th and 12th); some are significators of sickness (6th, 8th, and 12th), some are significators of career/occupation (2nd, 6th, and 10th), and so on. The stronger the significators are, the greater the possibility of their results materializing during a particular year under review...but you won't know this unless you familiarize yourself with the positions of the planets.

Example: Suppose all of the above transiting planets are simultaneously moving in the stars for the significators of money (like the 2nd, 6th, and 11th), and also simultaneously moving in the Subs connected with the 2nd, 6th, and 11th in the Natal Chart. It is then that they become coincided with one another in their respective ability to influence these specific matters. So your monetary condition may then improve during this part of the year. Now, consider the

same scenario with the above transiting planets moving in the Subs or connected with the 8th or 12th houses instead of the 2nd, 6th, or 11th houses of the Birth Chart. In this scenario, it is likely that you will lose money, be short of cash, or you may have heavy expenditures that need to be addressed at this time. So when this situation arises in any particular month, you will find that the Sun might be transiting in the Star or Sub of the significator of the 2nd, 6th, or 11th OR transiting in the Star or Sub of the 8th or 12th of the Natal Chart, whatever the case may be. To further elaborate, if the above situation happens to occur on a particular day, the Moon may be transiting in the Star or Sub of the significator of the 2nd, 6th, 11th, OR the 8th or12th.

Now suppose the above transiting planets are moving in the Stars of the 2nd, 6th, and 11th during a particular year under consideration, but their Star Lords remain in retrograde motion for a certain length of time. If this is the case, it will not be possible to expect any desired result/outcome until these Star Lords revert back to direct motion. This type of scenario is even more pronounced if these planets are in the Subs of retrograde planets.
