A National Conference on Futurology and Astrology was organized by Bharat Nirman in New Delhi in December 1993. I was invited to deliver a talk on the subject of TECHNIQUES OF PREDICTIONS. Well, while there are various techniques including application of Parashari System, Jaimini System, Tajak System, etc., I chose the subject "HOW TO ANALYSE A HOROSCOPE IN THREE MINUTES". I am sharing my views with the readers, which will help them in their efforts of helping the humanity with minimum use of time. I will discuss the matter in a step-wise manner.
Transform (Fill in) the horoscope in the following format:
|Date of birth||12th December, 1946|
|Time of birth||2026 HRS|
|Place of birth||XYZ, Long 71E30 Latitude 30N15 Time zone - 5.30 Hours.|
Balance dasa of Saturn at birth: 14 years 6 months 24days.
Dec 93 presently running sub-period of Rahu in the main period of Venus.
THE ASCENDING DEGREE IS TO BE TREATED AS MOST EFFECTIVE POINT OF ALL HOUSES.
Note down the functional malefics for the ascendant as per SYSTEMS' APPROACH. For the sample horoscope the functional malefics, as per SYSTEMS' APPROACH, are as under: RAHU, KETU, JUPITER AND SATURN
STEPIII. NOTE DOWN THE WEAK PLANETS.
WEAK PLANETS IN THE SAMPLE
|- In Infancy (i.e. longitude less than 5 degrees in a particular sign)||MARS|
|- In old age (i.e. the longitude more than 25 degrees in a particular sign)||SUN|
|- In debilitation||NIL|
|- In combustion||MARS|
|- Debilitated in navamsa||NIL|
|- Bad placement (i.e. in the 6th, 8th or 12th houses)||MARS|
|- In the mooltrikona sign of a weak planet. i.e. weakness of dispositor||NIL|
IDENTIFY AFFLICTED & SEVERELY AFFLICTED PLANETS.
Afflicted planets are those that are closely conjunct with or closely aspected by functional malefics noted above. (Step II).
Close conjunction/aspect as per Systems' Approach means location within a longitudinal difference of 5 degrees.
- Venus (closely conjunct with Jupiter)
- Saturn (closely aspected by Ketu)
SEVERELY AFFLICTED PLANETS
Those planets that are weak, badly placed and afflicted are treated as severely afflicted planets. Sample Horoscope.......... NIL
Identify close auspicious conjunctions/aspects, placements i.e. of functional benefics amongst themselves or to the mid-points of houses.
- The Moon to the mid-point of the ascendant.
- Mercury to the mid-point of the fifth house.
- Mars to the mid-point of the sixth house.
- The Moon receiving aspect of Mars.
In own sign The Moon and Venus
In exaltation sign NIL
GAUGE STRENGTH OF PLANETS
placement but weak, being in old age.
MOON Good placement, bright and own sign.
MARS Bad placement, combust and in infancy.
MERCURY Good placement
JUPITER Good placement, conjunct with functional benefic Venus
VENUS Good placement, own sign but afflicted by close conjunction of Jupiter.
SATURN Good placement, close aspect of malefic Ketu
Noting down the strength of functional malefics is also necessary because as explained earlier, every planet has many roles to play.
If a Mooltrikona sign rises in the ascendant pay special attention to the longevity by seeing the strength of planets and the functional nature of the operating planets i.e. the main and sub-period lords. Most of the planets being weak and severe, afflictions to the ascendant or to the ascendant lord with operating period of functional malefics give short life. Similarly placed planets with operating period of functional benefics give middle span of life.
Weak planets keep the significations to a lower level, if unafflicted. Severely afflicted planets cause tragedies or fatal diseases. The operating periods reduce/increase the impact. Pay special attention to the transit strength of operating planets.
Two way astral remedies are suggested. Charities or propitiatory methods for functional malefics. Strengthening measures for weak functional benefic planets through KAVACH made of mystical numbers, Color and Gem Therapy.
Effective remedial measures have been suggested for various ascendants at the end of each Chapter on the twelve ascendants. These remedial measures help in warding off the evils and generating good results for the native concerned.
PREDICTIONS/INDICATIONS IN CONCERNED PLANETARY PERIODS
The sign Cancer rises, which is ruled by the Moon. The Moon is personified as a queen in the planetary cabinet. With strong, well-placed and unafflicted Moon, the native was born in an affluent family.
The Sun rules the house of status and is well placed and unafflicted. The Sun gave a senior position to the native in a governmental organization.
The weakness of Mars created many tense moments in his professional career. During the sub-period of Mars in the main period of Venus he could not be promoted in spite of the authorities intending to promote him because of the representation of other officers. The circumstances changed at the eleventh hour. The native's dynamism was thereby reduced.
The good and unafflicted placement of Mercury indicates his intelligence, initiatives, good communication skills and sharp intellect. This is one of the reasons of his acquiring his present status.
Good placement of Jupiter indicates and has given graceful and pleasant personality. He has been blessed with children including a son. He enjoys good physical health with slight problem of hypertension because of Jupiter's conjunction (as a functional malefic) with Venus, the lord of the fourth house ruling the heart and its functioning.
Strong but afflicted. Due to affliction gives mental tension in its operating period, which generated the problem of hypertension. Strong Venus rules the fourth house and gives comforts, pleasant disposition of wife and affluent assets. Gave good education in the fields of finance and law ruled by Venus.
Rules the eighth house and the longevity in particular as its mooltrikona sign is placed in the eighth house. Eighth house rules inheritance, longevity and marital tie. The good placement of strong Saturn enables it to bear the affliction of functional malefic Ketu to a large extent. During the operating periods of Saturn and Ketu some amount of tension generates for the significations of the Saturn in general and eighth house in particular
Occupies its sign of exaltation in the eleventh house. This gives material affluence and as it is unafflicted and quite away from the mid point of the eleventh house, there are very remote chances of a sizable loss. However, in its operating periods it delays and denies the fulfilment of desires.
It does not form any close conjunction/aspect other than the Saturn, discussed above, under the planet Saturn.
During transit, whenever functional malefics form close conjunction/aspect with the weak/afflicted natal positions, which are the Sun, Mars and Saturn in the sample horoscope, problems with regard to the significations ruled by these planets, may be expected to be triggered.
The author is confident that the above example will provide the students with an extremely simple, yet accurate, method of comprehension of the horoscopes being studied by him. Further enrichment of the analytical faculties and skills will be achieved by going through the numerous case studies included in this book as well as other books by the same author, which are all based on the Systems' Approach propounded by him.
