LEARN ASTROLOGY - LESSON 51
"TIMING OF EVENTS"
The analysis of case studies on this website is done with the help of Systems'Approach for Interpreting Horoscopes. The Systems'Approach (SA) propounded by Author and Astrologer, V K Choudhry, is a set of principles which gives fast, nearly accurate and clear results. SA takes you out of the confusions, contradictions and inconsistencies which have crept in the classical literature over the period of time before the advent of the printing technology. The success of astral remedies suggested as per SA, especially the Kavach as shown on this website (copyright), can be seen from the fact that today many astrologers are offering it. God only knows whether they follow the divine way of living for energising the Kavach.
Diverse applications of astrology include the aspect of timing of events. This is especially done for:
2. Birth of a child;
3. Getting a job;
4. Recovery from illness;
5. Return of missing persons;
6. Venturing into business;
7. Acquiring a house/property.
While the “Timing of events” is done with the help of the sub-periods and the triple transit triggering influence of planets in the natal chart, the natal promise is ascertained from the birth chart.
The basis of Vedic Astrology is the Karma theory based on the premise that the planetary influences in the natal chart are the results of one’s deeds of past lives. The ascendant establishes the functional nature of planets. The Moon sets the clock in motion. The type of karma, one is destined to, is deciphered from the nature of influences on the tenth house, lord of the tenth house, the Sun and Jupiter.
Birth chart analysis, as per Systems’ Approach, depend upon the following factors:
1. FUNCTIONAL NATURE OF PLANETS
The functional nature of planets is the key analytical factor in the horoscope analysis. Besides Rahu and Ketu, the planets, whose mooltrikona signs are in malefic houses (sixth, eighth and twelfth) with reference to the ascendant, act as functional malefic planets in a nativity. For this purpose, under the Systems' Approach the sign Cancer is considered as the mooltrikona sign of the Moon.
For various ascending signs, the functional malefic planets are mentioned hereunder:
ASCENDANT - FUNCTIONAL MALEFIC PLANETS
1. Aries - Mercury, Rahu and Ketu.
2. Taurus - Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Rahu and Ketu.
3. Gemini - Rahu and Ketu.
4. Cancer - Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu.
5. Leo - the Moon, Rahu and Ketu.
6. Virgo - Saturn, Mars, the Sun, Rahu and Ketu.
7. Libra - Mercury, Rahu and Ketu.
8. Scorpio - Mars, Venus, Rahu and Ketu.
9. Sagittarius - the Moon, Rahu and Ketu.
10. Capricorn - the Sun, Jupiter, Rahu and Ketu.
11. Aquarius - the Moon, Mercury, Rahu and Ketu.
12. Pisces - the Sun, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu.
The functional nature of any planet depends on the nature of the mooltrikona house of that planet. It is not related to the strength of the planet. A planet may be weak or strong but the functional nature will remain same as per the defined principle for identifying the functional nature of planets.
SPECIAL IMPACT OF RAHU AND KETU
In exceptional cases, when Rahu is well placed in a mooltrikona sign of a planet, without causing any conjunction or close aspect with other houses and planets and its dispositor is strong, Rahu gives good results during its sub-periods for materialistic prosperity. Rahu-Ketu, when exalted, give materialist benefits while debilitated Rahu involves the native in exposed scandals and acute physical sufferings.
The functional malefic planets for various ascendants, mentioned above, may appear to be at variance when seen in the context of the available classical texts, but when you analyze the charts based on the functional malefic planets brought out hereinabove, you would find that all of your confusions disappear at one stroke. The classical principles were laid down by Maharishi Parashara in Dwapara yuga and changes, mutatis mutandis (wherever necessary) have been suggested for the nativities in the Kaliyuga.
2. IDENTIFYING AFFLICTING PLANETS
It is very necessary to understand the difference between afflicting planets and afflicted planets.
All planets can become afflicted, but only the functional malefic planets can be afflicting planets.
A transit functional malefic planet will afflict always its natal position by conjunction or aspect, except when placed in its own mooltrikona house in the rasi/birth chart. A natal/transit functional malefic planet never afflicts its own mooltrikona house, except when the functional malefic planet is already afflicted and/or afflicts from a dusthana/malefic house.
3. UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACT OF PLANETARY CONJUNCTIONS AND ASPECTS:
In the case of the influence of functional malefic planets over MEPs/planets simultaneously strong in rasi and transit, the orb is one degree on either side for normal afflictions and two degrees on either side for special/multiple afflictions, while in the case of MEPs/planets either weak in rasi or in transit, the orb is five degrees on either side.
In the case of the influence of strong functional benefic planets over MEPs/planets simultaneously strong in rasi and transit, the orb is five degrees on either side, while in the case of MEPs/planets either weak in rasi or in transit, the orb is one degree on either side. Under the influence of natal/transit functional malefic planets, all planets get malefically influenced.
The maximum influence of the transit or natal conjunction/aspect is when it is within one degree on either side. As soon as the transit influence starts separating, the influence starts tapering down. It is very important to see the strength of the planet on which the transit influence is being studied. For example, if the Sun, being the lord of the fourth house and being a functional benefic planet, is placed in the fourth house and its longitude is eleven degrees and is strong, the functional malefic influence of Jupiter, the most malefic planet for the Taurus ascendant, will be effective when Jupiter is between 9 degrees and 13 degrees in the signs Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius or Aries, while the single functional malefic influence of Mars will be effective when Mars is between 10 degrees and 12 degrees in the signs Leo, Capricorn, Aquarius or Taurus, because the Sun is strong in the natal chart. Please do not forget to consider the transit strength of this Sun. If the Sun in a Taurus nativity is placed in the sign Libra at a longitude of five degrees then the transit influence of Jupiter over it would be effective whenever Jupiter transits from zero degrees to 10 degrees in Libra, Aquarius, Aries or Gemini, and the transit influence of Mars over it would be effective whenever Mars transits from zero degrees to 10 degrees in Libra, Pisces, Aries or Cancer. However, once the longitude of the transit Jupiter or the transit Mars is 5 degrees, the transit influence would start separating and tapering down but it will clear the affliction only when their longitude is over ten degrees, assuming they are in direct movement. The orb of affliction for a non-mooltrikona house is five degrees on either side of the most effective point. We hope the readers are able to understand this dimension for better analysis.
4. IDENTIFYING THE STRENGTH OF PLANETS
A weak natal planet is not capable of fully protecting/promoting its general significations and the significations of its mooltrikona house during the course of its sub-periods and during the triple transit functional malefic influences. By descending order of weakness, any planet becomes weak when:
1) The most effective point of its mooltrikona sign is afflicted by a functional malefic planet within an orb of one degree.
2) The most effective point of its house of placement is afflicted by a functional malefic planet within an orb of one degree.
3) It is conjunct or aspected by any functional malefic planet within an orb of one degree.
4) It is combust due to its nearness to the Sun.
5) It occupies malefic houses from the ascendant, except if in its own mooltrikona sign.
6) It occupies its sign of debilitation.
7) It is in the state of infancy or old-age.
8) It occupies its debilitated sign in navamsa.
9) It occupies the mooltrikona sign of a weak planet.
NOTE: In serial nos. (1) to (3) above, when the affliction is special or multiple i.e. when it comes from:
1) a conjunction with/aspect from the most malefic planet,
2) an aspect from a functional malefic planet placed in a dusthana,
3) a conjunction with Rahu or Ketu (Rahu-Ketu axis),
4) an aspect of a functional malefic planet afflicted by other functional malefic planet(s),
5) more than one functional malefic planet at the same time,
Then the otherwise "strong" planet should be considered afflicted (and weak) even when the orb of affliction is of two degrees.
5. IDENTIFYING THE RESULTS OF VIMSHOTRI DASA
Events fructify in the sub-periods of planets. Therefore, it is very important that we understand the method of analyzing the dasa (main period) and bhukti (sub-period) results. The results of the general significations of the sub-period lord depend upon its strength, placement, conjunction and aspects to the same. The significations of the house of placement are touched when transit planets create benefic or malefic influences on the sub-period lord, depending upon their functional nature whether benefic or malefic. In the sub-period of a planet, the following significations are touched:
(1) The general significations of the planet. For example the Sun rules father, social status, position with the government, male child, digestive system, heart, blood pressure, etc.
(2) The significations of the house where the mooltrikona sign of the said planet is placed. In cases where in the mooltrikona house some functional malefic planet is placed close to the most effective point, or some functional malefic planet is closely aspecting the most effective point of the said house, or some planet is closely afflicted then during the sub-periods of the afflicting and afflicted planet(s) the significations of the mooltrikona house shall not prosper and shall face problems indicated by the afflicting planet depending upon its lordship. A natal/transit functional malefic planet never afflicts its own mooltrikona house, except when the functional malefic planet is already afflicted and/or afflicts from a dusthana/malefic house.
(3) The significations of the houses where the planet is placed.
(4) During the sub-period of a planet all the impacts on the house, which contains the mooltrikona sign of the said planet, also come into force. Due to such influences on the most effective point by a strong functional benefic planet even the sub-period of a weak planet would be blessing the native with good or very good results. Similarly, a close impact of a functional malefic planet on the most effective point of a mooltrikona house may not allow the planet ruling that mooltrikona house to show good results in its sub-periods even if the said planet is strong in the natal chart.
6. APPLICATION OF ASTRAL REMEDIES
To expedite and ensure greater possibility of the desired event a two way application of astral remedies is made:
a) Strengthening of weak functional benefic planets.
b) Propitiation of afflicting/functional malefic planets.
7. CASE STUDIES: RECOVERY FROM ILLNESS
Let us take up the study of timing recovery and survival of patients. In an atmosphere of suspense when medical attendants can't assure the querent (person asking question) about the condition of the patient, one is impelled to turn to astrology to know the likely end of the suspense and the timing. The serious illness is governed by the following factors:-
(i) The sub-periods of weak and afflicted natal planets.
(ii) The sub-period of the planet whose mooltrikona sign falls in the sixth house whenever such a sixth lord forms a close conjunction/aspect with another natal/transit planet or most effective point of a particular house.
(iii) The illness is triggered by the triple transit malefic influence on the weak natal/transit planetary configurations.
To analyze recovery of the patient the horoscope is a must. Fairly accurate delineations can be worked out from a horary (prasna) chart, as well. The duration of recovery is worked out through the study of the current sub-period and separating functional malefic transit influences. When the slow moving functional malefic planets like Rahu-Ketu, Saturn and Jupiter are exercising affliction(s) and are stationary, the duration of the critical condition of the patient is generally longer. The pace of recovery depends upon the general strength of the planets in the natal chart and transit.
In this regard we have to proceed with the analysis in a systematic manner. Firstly, we have to work out the natal chart of the patient or one of the close relatives of the patient. In the absence of the birth particulars of the patient the analysis can be made from the horary chart or the chart of a close relative of the patient. After working out the chart, identify the slow moving functional malefic planet exerting a malefic influence in the chart currently i.e. in transit and/or the slow moving planet under functional malefic natal influence. Rahu and Ketu work in a malefic manner for all the ascendants. After identifying the functional malefic planet(s) causing the serious condition and the strength of the natal position of the afflicted planet/house find out if the affliction is on the most effective point of a house ruled by a weak planet or on a weak natal planet. The transit strength of the identified weak and afflicted planet should also be identified. If the sub-period of a natal functional benefic is running, the results may not be serious and the recovery depends on the separation of the functional malefic influence on the weak natal/transit positions. While the seriousness may go when the separating influence is one degree longitude apart, the recovery may be possible when the separating effect is five degrees longitude apart between the afflicting planet and the afflicted planet/house. The general strong position of transit planets hastens the recovery while the weak position delays the same. The brightness/strength of the Moon is a significant factor for consideration and transit affliction of the Moon gives the possible timing of set-backs indicating deterioration in the condition. The brief spells of transit affliction of the Moon can be avoided for major medical remedies such as starting a new medication, operation, etc. to circumvent immediate complications in the treatment.
For the benefit of the readers, we would now take up some illustrations so that the readers can comprehend the application of a systematic approach. The first three charts pertain to serious indoor patients in the second fortnight of February, 1995. The general planetary position was not encouraging besides it being a dark half. Mars was in its sign of debilitation. The Sun was weak as its dispositor was weak and the Sun was under the close aspect of Rahu. Saturn was combust; Venus changed signs and underwent the states of old age and infancy. Jupiter was weak due to its being in the debilitated in the navamsa. The general weakness of the majority of planets kept the pace of recovery of these patients quite slow and the transit afflictions of the Sun and the Moon increased the intensity of seriousness.
The readers can make free online horoscopes for the case studies mentioned below from our website www.YourNetAstrologer.com
Male born 14th October 1929, 74E18 31N35, 2305 hrs, TZ 5.30 Hrs. India.
Rahu-Ketu axis afflicts the most effective points of the houses occupied/aspected in this nativity. During the main period of Ketu and the sub-period of Mars the functional malefic planets Rahu and Ketu, exercising close influence on the fifth house in the natal chart, came under their own transit influence and gave the problem of acidity and burning sensation in the food pipe. On the 18th January, 1995, the transit Rahu formed a close conjunction with natal Mars, who was in its sign of debilitation in transit. On 13th February, 1995, when the transit influence of Rahu and Ketu further intensified on natal Mars, the person was admitted to the hospital for an operation for removal of a suspected malignant growth in the food pipe to which the person succumbed on 6th March, 1995, when the transit malefic influence of Rahu and Ketu on weak natal Mars was continuing. The speed of Rahu was quite slow and it took its toll. The sub-period of Rahu was indicative of such an eventuality in the main period of Ketu which is the most malefic planet for the natives born under the ascending sign of Gemini.
Horary/Prasna chart for 27th February, 1995, 1545 hrs. TZ 5.30 Hrs. New Delhi, India.
The query was regarding the illness of a relative admitted in the ICU. Rahu-Ketu axis was closely afflicting the most effective points of the houses occupied and aspected. The lord of the eighth house ruling death was severely afflicting the lord of the sixth house, Jupiter. The horary chart clearly indicates that the lord of the house of family is under the exact affliction of Rahu and was in the process of forming a close conjunction with the lord of the eighth house in the eighth house. The conjunction of the lord of the second house ruling family was becoming further close with the lord of the eighth house and was also continuing under the close aspect of transit Rahu.
The lord of the ascendant of the horary chart was also entering the eighth house and coming under the close influence of Rahu indicating grief to the native. The patient died in the morning hours of the 1st March, 1995. The weakened lord of the ascendant of the horary chart had also entered the eighth house and come under the close affliction of Rahu.
Appropriate astral remedies for the afflicting planets play a major role in toning down the severity of the afflictions. No astral remedies were being performed in this case.
During the second half of February, 1995, there were number of casualties in the ICU while the position of ICU patients reportedly started improving in the bright half and after the Sun was free from the close affliction of Rahu.
Male born 18th February 1952, 1630 hrs. TZ 5.30 Hrs.New Delhi, India.
The lord of the ascendant is debilitated and weak but well placed and unafflicted. Mars, the lord of the tenth house, closely aspects the tenth house which is a positive factor for the longevity in view of the weakness of the prime factor of longevity, the lord of the ascendant. The functional malefic planets, Saturn and Jupiter, closely aspect each other giving rise to possibility of death through serious illness or an accident. Jupiter rules the house of illness and Saturn rules the house of death.
The Sun and combust Mercury are placed in the eighth house and the Sun is suffering from the close affliction of the Rahu-Ketu axis. The Sun is the significator for the vitality. The planetary configurations clearly deny the full life span. The native had just completed 43 years of age.
The native was admitted in the hospital for liver cirrhosis on 22nd February, 1995, and was in the sub-period of Saturn in the main period of Ketu. Jupiter is the significator for liver. The sub-period was of a planet which is indicative of death. In transit, besides the Moon being in the dark half, the Sun was in the eighth house, Jupiter had formed close aspect with the natal position of Jupiter and Rahu-Ketu axis was afflicting the most effective point of the eighth house besides the most effective points of the other houses occupied and aspected. Transit Saturn was exactly afflicting transit Jupiter. It was considered that the recovery of the patient was almost impossible. The patient breathed his last four days later when the transit Sun came under the exact aspect of Rahu.
Male born 7th July 1994, 0705 hrs. 73E47 18N57 TZ 5.30 Hrs. India.
The lord of the ascendant is in its sign of exaltation and unafflicted but very weak as it is in the state of extreme old age. The lord of the eighth house is strong and not creating any close affliction in the chart. In this way it strengthens the longevity and indicates gains to father but causes obstructions and ill health during its sub-period. Mercury and the Sun are badly placed but do not suffer from any close affliction. The functional malefic Jupiter, too, does not cause any close affliction in the chart. The child was reported to be suffering seriously from meningitis since 21st November, 1994. The native was running the sub-period of Mercury in the main period of Mars. The sub-period of a weak functional benefic planet was not considered to be dangerous for life. Transit Jupiter was afflicting the most effective point of the fifth house and the most effective points of the houses aspected, as well. Simultaneously, the transit Rahu had also formed close aspect with natal Sun and Saturn placed in the twelfth and eighth houses, respectively. Transit aspects were separating towards the end of the year 1994. Therefore, native's parents were advised for propitiatory measures for Rahu and Jupiter and strengthening measures for the weak functional benefic planets through the use of a Yantra (Kavach). The native responded to treatment completely by the end of December, 1994.
Male born 25th March 1981, 1728 hrs. TZ 5.30 Hrs. New Delhi, India.
The lord of the ascendant is badly placed in the eighth house in close conjunction with the functional benefic planets, Mars and Venus. The Sun and Mars suffer from the close affliction of Rahu from the twelfth house. The Moon occupies its sign of debilitation.
Saturn and Jupiter are well placed and are closely conjunct with each other but both of them suffer from the close aspect of Ketu from the sixth house. Mercury is the only well placed planet but its dispositor is badly afflicted. The sub-period of Rahu robbed the courage of the native due to affliction of Rahu to the Sun and the combust Mars and the native developed a fear phobia. The treatment from different sources proved to be of little help. On 25th of August, 1994, astral counseling and remedies were sought. The native was suggested charities for Rahu, avoiding of the grey colored clothes and the use of the protective disk, Kavach, for strengthening of the weak functional benefic planets which proved helpful and indicated improvement in the general condition of the native. The full rehabilitation of the native was slow due to the following period of a weak Saturn and Jupiter, especially as both of these planets were afflicted by Ketu by way of an aspect from the house of diseases.
Female born 15th December 1982, 0835 hrs. TZ 5.30 Hrs.New Delhi, India.
The functional malefic, the Moon, is debilitated, badly placed and is closely afflicting the weak Sun. The lord of the ascendant is badly placed. The Rahu-Ketu axis closely afflicts Mercury and Venus. Rahu closely afflicts Saturn. Mars is the only strong planet. Mars is in its sign of exaltation and does not suffer from any affliction. The weak ascendant lord and afflicted planets make a native prone to ill-health. During the end of the sub-period of Mercury in the main period of Ketu the native suffered from loss of memory. The astral remedies were sought towards the end of 1994 after trying medical and psychiatric treatment of all types. As the disease had not been the result of the transit influence but is indicative due to the affliction of Mercury which is closely conjunct with Ketu, no short term treatment gave relief. The astral propitiatory remedies for Rahu, Ketu and the Moon together with a Kavach for strengthening the weak and afflicted functional benefic planets were suggested. The use of the astral remedies started giving improvement.
8. CASE STUDIES: TIMING RETURN OF MISSING PERSONS
This is another area in which no other science is helpful. A person may be missing due to a variety of reasons. It may be a willful or involuntary absence. The willful absence may be because of emotional involvement, fear psyche or because of some difference of opinion. The involuntary disappearance may be because of illness on the way, abduction or problems with means of communications.
Such types of questions are handled through prasna charts or through birth charts. These can be caused by functional malefic transit influences both on natal or prasna charts. The influence of the nodes (Rahu-Ketu) is more pertinent. The timing is done with the help of the separating transit influences. When the functional malefic transit influences are on other transit planets, the separating impact is faster compared to the stationary transit influence on the weak natal planets. The transit functional malefic influence is seen on the most effective points of the ascendant, third house, fourth house, fifth house, seventh house or the tenth house or their lords. The malefic influence caused by Ketu, functional malefic Mars and the lords of the sixth and eighth houses on the ascendant or its lord or any other weak and badly placed planet results in involuntary disappearance while the involvement of Rahu, lords of the third, fifth, seventh and twelfth houses may cause willful disappearance.
For obtaining information of whereabouts, we see when the significator planets of the information, that is the Moon, Mercury or the lord of the third house, create influence on the third house, the planets placed therein or the ascendant.
The other important factor to be kept in view is the speed of the planets in transit. The slow speed or stationary position of planets delays the return while the fast speed hastens the separation effect and results in early return/information.
The issue will be discussed further with the help of case studies.
Female born 20th August 1983, 0525 hrs. TZ 5.30 Hrs.
New Delhi, India.
The native left home on 29th November, 1996, in the early morning. The prasna was made on 30th November, 1996, at 2140 hours at Gurgaon. The strong Moon in the ascendant of the prasna chart prepared indicated that the native was physically fit. In the natal chart Mars ruling the tenth house, is placed in the ascendant and the same is under the close influence of the functional malefic planets, Jupiter and Saturn. The influence of lord of the eighth house on the lord of the tenth house and the close influence of Rahu to most effective points of the third, fifth and seventh houses make the person interested in carnal pleasures and impels for acting as per one's own will. At the time of leaving the house, the native was running the sub-period of Rahu in the main period of the Moon. Transit Mercury was under the influence of natal Rahu-Ketu in the fifth house. The sub-period of Mercury in the main period of Mercury was operating in the prasna chart. As transit Mercury was under the influence of natal Rahu and in the prasna chart its sub-period was in operation, Mercury was picked up for timing the event of return. It was indicated that the native would return around 8th of December, 1996, when transit Mercury had cleared from the transit influence of Saturn, the lord of the eighth house in the prasna chart. However, it was also thought that the information might well be received around 4th December, 1996, when transit Moon conjoined the natal Mercury in the third house. The native rang up on the night of 4th December, 1996, and returned on 8th December, 1996. In this case the involvement of Mars gave willful movements. Whenever the most effective point of the fifth house, third house, Venus and the lords of the fifth or third houses are under the close impact of Rahu, it gives uncontrolled urges for carnal pleasures.
Horary chart for 15th November 1994, 1901 hrs. 28N27 77E01, TZ 5.30 Hrs. India.
The lord of the eighth is conjunct with the lord of the fourth house and the lord of the fifth house is under the close influence of Venus. The most effective point of the third house and the weak lord of the fourth house are under the influence of Mars, the lord of the twelfth house. This girl left home on 7th November, 1994. On that day, the transit Jupiter was exerting its malefic influence exactly on the natal, Sun, the lord of the fourth house. The fourth house rules the character while the eighth house rules the carnal pleasures.
In this case, the Moon was considered as the significator for returning and the return was indicated when either the Moon transited the ascendant or the third house as the exact afflicting influence of transit Jupiter over the natal Sun had ceased to exist. The native returned on 20th November, 1994, when the Moon was close to the most effective point of the ascendant.
Female born 27th May 1970, 2200 hrs. TZ 5.30 Hrs.Ahmadabad, India.
The native disappeared on 8th December, 1994, when her marriage was fixed for the 22nd January, 1995. The lord of the third house is in close conjunction with the planet, Mercury, and both of these planets are placed in the fifth house, ruling emotions. Mercury is indicative of exercising one's choice as it rules the tenth house. Its association with the third lord in the house of emotions is indicative of strong emotional involvement. When the marriage was fixed by parents without her consent she eloped. In this case, transit Venus was under the close impact of natal Rahu. Transit Rahu was influencing natal Mercury and Saturn. She was running the sub-period of Venus in the main period of Jupiter. It was indicated that the native may return around 20th of January, 1995, when the close influence of transit Rahu would have separated by three to four degrees from the natal Saturn and Mercury. The native returned on the 18th of January, 1995.
Male born 25th June 1946, 1325 hrs. TZ 5.30 Hrs.Batala, India.
The lord of the sixth house closely afflicts the lord of the ascendant. Rahu closely aspects the lord of the fourth house, Jupiter, placed in the ascendant.
This person did not reach home after leaving his office on 24th November, 1994. A member of his family asked me about him on 25th November, 1994 at 0852 hours at Gurgaon. The transit Mercury was in Libra at 28 degrees and unafflicted. This meant he was alive. The transit Rahu was on the most effective point of the second house. As it had already crossed the natal degree of the ascendant, there was no other transit affliction and the transit Rahu was in its last phase of stationary movement. It was indicated that the native may return in a couple of days.
The native had fainted on 24th November, 1994 after leaving his office on the way home and was hospitalized. The native returned home on the 28th November, 1994.
Horary chart for 23rd April 1995, 2145 hrs. TZ 5.30 Hrs.New Delhi, India.
The native left home on 22nd April, 1995. Her engagement finalized in December, 1993, had broken after one year in the beginning of 1995. In the prasna chart the functional malefic Mars afflicts the Moon causing mental and emotional disturbance. Jupiter and Saturn are well placed but weak in the chart and at the time of her disappearance she was running the sub-period of Saturn in the main period of Mars. The Sun was in conjunction with Ketu and Saturn was under the close affliction of Mars. As there was no planet in the eighth house and there is no mooltrikona sign in the eighth house, it was indicated that physically she was alright and was likely to return in a week's time. The conjunction of the Sun with Ketu was to separate and the Moon was to aspect the ascendant after a week. Mercury was also moving to the seventh house.
In her natal chart the Leo rises with Moon, the most malefic planet, aspecting the most effective point of the fifth house from the eleventh house and with conjunction of the Sun and Mercury in the sixth house. That explains the reasons for the broken engagement. The native returned on 27th April, 95 when the Moon was on the MEP of the fifth house in the Horary chart.
Female born 5th May 1980, 1014 hrs. 74E50 24N18, TZ 5.30 Hrs. India.
Ketu afflicts Venus, Mars and Jupiter in the natal chart. The conjunction of Mars with Jupiter, lord of the seventh house, together with influence of Rahu on both of these planets in the house of initiative shows the initiative regarding marriage. The aspect of the lord of the third house on the most effective point of the fifth house is a supportive factor in this regard.
Transit Jupiter had formed a conjunction with the natal Moon on 12th July, 1996. At the time of prasna on 16th July, 1996, (with 17° ascendant rising in the sign Capricorn), the close influence of Rahu on the most effective point of the fifth house of the prasna chart had started separating and it was predicted that the native may return before 20th of July, 1996. The native returned on 18th July, 1996.
Male born 4th December 1978, 0946 hrs. 76E38 27N34, TZ 5.30 Hrs. India.
The lord of the fifth house is extremely weak. Rahu afflicts the most effective point of the ascendant, third and fifth houses. This is indicative of a weak intelligence and an interest in loafing and pleasure seeking.
In October, 1992, when transit Rahu afflicted natal Mars the native left home. The native was running the sub-period of the weak and badly placed Mercury and was unemployed. Feeling sick of the constant reprimand from his parents he left home. The father was advised propitiatory astral remedies for Rahu and Ketu. Transit Rahu was becoming stationary at 27 degree in Dec' 92. Therefore, until it created at least a longitudinal difference of 5 degrees from the natal Mars, the return was not seen. The native returned home in the last week of March 1993.
