YSR Reddy Missing - Dead or Alive?

According to news sources Mr. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, popularly known as YSR & chief minister of Andhra Pradesh state, is missing since around 9:12 AM this morning. Search operations are going on. According to Times of India online edition, "From remote sensing satellites, fighter jets, UAVs, troops on the ground to barefoot deer-hunting tribals with bows and arrows- a mission of huge magnitude was underway on Wednesday night to trace YSR Reddy's missing helicopter." Everyone in India is asking the same question - what happened to YSR? Is YSR dead or alive?

As I don't have birth chart of YSR, natal astrology will not be of much of the use. In absence of birth details, horary astrology seemed the only resort. Horary astrology (Prashna Jyotish in Sanskrit) is a branch of astrology which is useful when birth details are not available. Some astrologers claim that horary is more accurate than the natal (birth chart) astrology.

So around 5PM today, I decided to cast horary chart to get the answer. Here are the query details for the horary chart -

Query: YSR dead or Alive?
Date of query: September 2nd, 2009
Time of query: 5:01 PM
Place of query: Agra, UP, India
Longitude: 78:00E
Latitude: 27:09N
Horary Number: 215

The detailed horary chart can be found here. Here is my analysis of the horary chart -

First house is house of overall well being. 8th house is the house of longevity. If these houses are connected with maraka (death giving) and badhaka (obstructing) houses, death is indicated.

In the present chart, ascendant sub lord is Saturn in 7th house. 2nd house and 7th house are called Maraka houses in Vedic astrology and presence of Saturn in 7th makes it Maraka. Saturn owns 12th and the 1st house. 12th house is the house of departure from this world & house of moksha etc., and indicates death if connected with maraka and badhaka houses. Saturn is in Nakshatra of Sun who is lord of 7th house and also posited in 7th house. So Saturn is a very strong Maraka planet.

Now see 8th house. 8th house sub lord is Venus. Venus is lord of 4th and 9th house and is situated in 6th house. According to Vedic astrology, for fixed ascendant, 9th house is the Badhaka house. Sixth house is the house of wound and diseases and generally gives indication of problem to the body. Venus is in the Nakshatra of Saturn and we have already talked about the fact that Saturn is a strong maraka planet.

Now let us analyze present dasa. Current maha dasa is of Moon who is lord of 6th house (disease/ wounds) and posited in 12th (departure from the world). Sub-period (bhukti) is of Venus and we have already talked about maraka and badhaka connections of Venus.

So to conclude, the chart doesn't present any good picture and chances of his survival looks bleak as per my analysis. I wish my analysis goes wrong. Quite a few of my fellow astrologers have predicted otherwise and I wish their predictions come out true. You can also read some of those analysis in the KP Astrology Discussion forum.

Note: This article is based on KP method of Horary astrology. KP Horary astrology uses an arbitrary number between 1 to 249 for calculating house positions and the above chart has been calculated using horary number 215.

What is Vidya Balan’s Date of Birth?, Today I was reading analysis of Vidya Balan’s birth chart by astrologer Sameer Upadhyay in daily news paper Hindustan. The point that attracted me is the time of birth. Sameer ji mentioned date of birth as 1st January 1978 whereas Wikipedia and Vidya Balan’s official website mention her date of birth as 1st January 1982. Recently the release of Kismat Konnection added fuel to her date controversy and it has gives me a reason to spend some time on birth time rectification/ verification.

After spending a little time, time used by Sameer ji looked more approporate to me and I made slight adjustment by rectifying her birth time as 10:25 PM (10:25:40 PM to be more precise) and able to verify many important events. I used Ruling Planet method in KP System for birth time rectification. From the Vedic astrologers perspective the change in time from 10:35 PM to 10:25 PM will not matter much because it doesn’t change rasi kundli.

Detailed birth chart of Vidya Balan can be found here.

I have found that Moon and Ascendant defines the look of a person. Moon sign lord is Mercury and Moon Nakshatra lord is Sun. Ascendant Sign lord is Sun and Ascendant Nakshatra lord is Venus. In totally Sun, Mercury and Venus will define her look. Sun gives majestic look and it adds ojas to the personality. Venus adds the beauty to it. Overall lagna and moon sign looks OK to me. Strong impact of Mercury in a birth chart makes one starting career early. Vidya started her career in 1995 when she was just seventeen it justifies her Virgo sign and strong impact of Mercury.

2nd sub lord Mercury indicates that she knows a lot of languages especially because it is lord of 2nd as well. Apparently she knows Tamil, Hindi, English, Malayalam, and Bengali.

Though Mars in neecha Rasi and strongly signifying 12th didn’t allow her to get any success in Mars dasa. Mars mahadas delayed her career. Her career kicked off after the dasa of Rahu. Unfortunately for her, Kismat Konnection released during Mars antardasa and this movie failed at box office. It looks like upcoming time is much better for her and we will see more successful movies from her.

As per this time, Venus bhukti under Rahu maha dasa has started from July 2007. How will be this dasa for her? Accordingly to classical astrology Venus is Rajyogakarak by the virtue of Kendra and trikona association. Lagna lord Sun is in 5th house with lord of 10th Venus constituting a powerful Rajyoga. Also generally Venus bhukti under Rahu mahadasa is regarded very good in classical astrology. Though as per KP, Venus is lord of 3rd and 10th in 4th. Due to the absence of 2nd and 11th involvement, I am finding it difficult to predict drastic improvement in her career.

Though there is definitely some positive. I checked the date of release of Lage Raho Munna Bhai and found that Sun was transiting in Venus’s start that time. We know that it was the biggest hit for her in her career. Which shows that if the improvement is not going to be drastic, still it should be significant. Also the impact of Venus will definitely add a lot of glamour to her and we will see more masala and mainstream films rather than films like Parinita. We have already seen this impact in Kismat Connecting where she played more glamorous character than before. Mercury is the lucky planet for her and it is the planet which helped her in giving successful movies like "Lage Raho Munna Bhai". Mercury antardasa will be there from December 2009 to May 2010 and it is the period where I see another blockbuster coming from Vidya. My best wishes to her.

Twin Births, Pregnancy & Lucky Names

What are the planetary combinations for the birth of twins? Can you predict whether the birth will be of twins?

Astrologically, Mercury is the principle planet behind twin birth. Dual signs Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces are also responsible for it. Virgo though not technically a dual sign, but owned by a dual planet mercury also responsible for some duality. Shri JN Bhasin, a famous astrologer, was of opinion that the exchange between lagna and third house produce twins if these planets also happen to be dual planets. In my forum, I have found a chart which can be a good case study for the twins. The birth details are as follows -

Date of Birth: 20/11/1968
Time of Birth: 5.29 A.M
Place Latitude: 9:14 North, Longitude: 76:13 East

Here are the charts -

Analysis -
It would be good to note the influence of Mercury and dual signs in this chart. Some of the interesting points that can produce twins can be seen from this chart -

1. Lagna and Moon is conjoining Mercury, the planet of duality
2. Lagna and Moon is also conjoining Mercury in Drekkana, the shodashvarga chart for siblings
3. Dekkana lagna is Gemini, a dual rasi
4. Lagna lord in 3rd in dual sign saggitarius
5. Third house lord Jupiter, also a dual planet due to owner of two dual signs, is in Virgo
6. Jupiter is again in Virgo in Drekkana

Similarly, if you are applying these principles from the parents charts, you need to judge 5th house, the house for children, and check the influence of dual planet and dual signs on this house. You also need to check Saptamamsa, the shodashvarga chart for children.

I have written few articles on pregnancy recently, so though to share some other views as well. Here is one article on this subject.

This article on selecting names using KP Astrology will also be an interesting read.

Indian Share Market Forecast For Year 2008 - 2009

During my analysis of varshpravesh chart for sports, I mentioned that the 3rd house is strong due to following reasons –
1. Saturn the lord of 3rd house is in Trine (9th house) with Mercury & Venus, lords of 7, 10 and 11.
2. It is accompanied by friendly planets Mercury and Venus
3. 3rd lord is aspecting 3rd house which makes 3rd house very powerful.

I concluded in the last post that 3rd house is for sports and that is the reason, India will perform well in sports in year 2008 - 2009. In Mundane astrology, other than sports, 3rd house signifies railways, postal, telegraphic, telephonic, and Internet services, stocks and shares, locomotion, transport, books, newspapers, literary undertakings etc. So it must improve if there are supporting factors. In this post, I just want to concentrate on share market.

Jupiter rules over share market. Jupiter is its own sign Sagittarius which makes Jupiter powerful. Jupiter is also with a friendly planet Moon which is another positive factor for moon. Though Jupiter I also lord of 8th house.

As per KP System (Krishnamurti Paddhati), cuspal sub lord for 3rd house is also Jupiter which is in first house owning 1st and 4th house. Jupiter is in the Nakshatra of Venus, lord of 6th and 11th in 9th. In KP, 6th and 11th are considered good for finance and hence should be good for share market.

2nd house represents overall reserves of a country in mundane chart. 2nd lord is Saturn with Venus lord of 6 & 11 and Mercury, lord of 7 and 10. In terms of finances and reserves 6th and 11th house are considered good. All this conjunction is happening in 9th house which is good for the national reserves. Presence of Rahu in 2nd though will make share market a little unstable and demonstrate unexpected ups and downs.

As per KP, 2nd house sub lord is Saturn in 9th lord of 2nd and 3rd. We already have seen that 2nd and 3rd are considered good for share market and reserves. Saturn is in the Nakshatra of Venus lord of 6 and 11 in 9th. Overall 2nd cuspal sub lord has all good things to say.

To conclude, 2nd and 3rd house seems good and we will see that the share market will flourish this year. The association of Moon with Jupiter may bring some unexpected down-trends but overall market should improve till August 2009. Jupiter and Venus together are the planets of finance, money and prosperity and association of these planets with 3rd house is definitely a positive sign for the share market.

Indian Sports in Year 2008 - 2009

Indian has done fairly well in present Olympics. India has already won three medals - one in shooting, one in wrestling, and another one in boxing. This is the highest number of medals ever won by India in Olympics. 3 medals with a country having more than a billion people is like a dew in the ocean. Nevertheless, people started calling present time a new era in Indian sports. I was just wondering what are the planetary combinations that are helping sports in India and what is the future of Indian sports.

To understand the scenario of sports in a country we need to look into the chart of the time of Independence. India got Independence on the night of 14/15th at 12:00 night. But we have to see the sports in year 2008. There are multiple options that can be used in such a situation. We can either use Vimshottari Dasa, we can use Transit/ Ashtakvarga or we can use Tajik Varshpravesh charts (Annual Horoscope). Varshpravesh charts are very popular in India for mundane predictions and used the same in this article.

62nd year of Indian Independence will start on 14th August 2008 at 15:18:58. Sagittarius (Dhanu) will be rising at that time. You can use any astrology software or for casting Varshphal/ Varshpravesh charts. Here is the charts for 62nd year -

For sports, we need to judge the 3rd house. In the present chart, Saturn is the lord of 3rd house situated in a trine and aspecting 3rd house. According to Vedic astrology, a bhava becomes very strong if it is aspected by the bhava lord. Saturn is in inimical sign (Leo) which is reducing its power. Though being with two friendly planets Mercury and Venus is helping Saturn and 3rd house in return. We can see from the Varshpravesh chart that India is going to do well in sports in year 2008.

Now let us have a look at this chart from KP System (Krishnamurti Paddhati) perspective. According to KP System, 1, 6 and 11 houses are good for sports. 1st house is generally for self confidence and self efforts. 6th house is for defeating opponent (by being 12th from 7th - the opponent) and 11th is for fulfilment of desire. 3rd house sub lord in KP cuspal chart is Jupiter. Jupiter is in lagna and also the lord of lagna which is very good for sports. As KP System is stellar astrology (Nakshatra based system) we see in which Nakshatra (constellation), Jupiter is situated. Jupiter will also influenced by the Nakshatra lord. Jupiter is in the Nakshatra of Venus. Venus is lord of 6th and 11th in 9th. As mentioned above 6th and 11th both are good houses for sports.

In general we can conclude that this year will see significant improvement in Indian sports.

I can understand that this post doesn't have much predictive value because even by common sense we can tell that Indian sports is going to improve because of the success in the current Olympics. Also. in astrology .postmortems are always easy and telling it after the happening of event doesn't make this post any valuable from prediction perspective. The only benefit that I can see form this post is that this post may have some astrological learning value. This post shows that we can use Varshpravesh charts for assessing individual years for a country. Also using these charts with KP System simplify the predictive astrology process. I have used it for prediting sports, but its utility if not limited to sports and this charts can be used in predicting any affair related to a country.

Predicting Minor Events Using Astrology

We have tons of books available on astrology but there are not many books that talk about predicting day to day events. Questions like what time power/ electricity will return, what time it will rain today and what time your son/daughter/brother will return from college are some questions those are difficult to answer using traditional methods.

One system of astrology which is very helpful in such cases is named KP System (Krishnamurti Paddhati). KP System defines a clear-cut methodology for predicting minor events (day to day events). You can predict even up to minutes and seconds. The method that is used in predicting minor events in called RP (Ruling Planets) method in KP System.

The Ruling Planets method is very simple in application. It suggests that the planets that will govern the time period when the question came into your mind will be the same as of fructification of the event. For example, I want to know what time my brother will return from the college. In this case the planets which are governing the moment when this question came into my mind will be the same as the planets governing the moment when he will return. It seems miraculous, isn't it?

I used this method a lot way back in 1995 when I started learning this system and got sufficiently good success percentage. Though I am not making regular use of this method now-a-days just because knowing such things are generally not much of practical use.

Coming to the point, yesterday I ordered one new LCD TV and few other electronic items as birthday gifts to my father. Though I made payment yesterday, they didn’t deliver it on time. Today morning I called them up and they said that it will be delivered by 4:00PM. Again I called them up around 4:30 PM and they said it will be delivered at 6:00PM for sure. Still it was not delivered and I was kind of disappointed. I waited till 7:50 and then decided to take help of RP. I asked following question to myself -

Query: What time the TV and other items will be delivered at my home?
Date of Query: August 18th, 2008
Time of Query: 7:50 PM
Place of Query: Agra

The ruling planet calculated were as follows –
Day Lord: Moon (as today is Monday)
Ascendant Sign Lord: Saturn
Ascendant Nakshatra Lord: Jupiter
Ascendant Sub Lord: Saturn
Moon Sign Lord: Saturn
Ascendant Nakshatra Lord: Jupiter
Ascendant Sub Lord: Saturn

To talk a few technicalities, few astrologers don't use Ascendant Sub Lord and Moon Sub lord, but as Ascendant and Moon were close conjunction I have used them as well. Even if we don't use them, I believe we will reach to the same conclusion. So the Ruling Planets are Moon, Saturn & Jupiter. Saturn and Jupiter are very strong Ruling Planets by appearing multiple times in the list.

Now to get the fulfillment time of event, I need to fix the ascendant for the time of fulfillment of event (in this case delivery of some items, but it can be any event). I fixed ascendant in the sign of Jupiter, Nakshatra of Saturn, Sub of Saturn and Sub Sub of Moon. I checked that Ascendant will be transiting in Jupiter’s Rasi, Saturn's Nakshatra and Saturn's sub when it will be on 3 degree 20 minutes of Pisces sign. In Agra, we will have this ascendant at 8:25 PM and this will be the time of delivery, I predicted.

You will be happy to note, the way I was happy, that I get a call exactly at 8:25PM from the delivery boy who was standing next to my door and trying to reach me for few minutes. So the prediction was correct even to a minute, which may sound amazing. Though there is nothing to be amazed about, this is "Astrology".

Will Saina Nehwal Bring Us Another Gold?

Abhinav Bindra, by winning the gold medal, has not only made us proud, but also increased our expectations. We Indians, who never expected anything from Olympics, now expecting more gold. Olympics are not over yet, so it seems a fair expectations.

I am not following Beijing Olympics closely, so I don't know who all are there in the race. Two name that news channels are talking about are Rajyavardhan Singh Rathod, - shooting and Saina Nahwal - badminton. I thought it would be good to give a try to horary astrology in figuring out what is the possibility of Saina Nahwal winning the medal? What astrology has to say on Saina Nehwal's success

In absence of birth time what to do? Astrology has provided certain tools to answer such a question. In my astrology research forum, we tried various methods and received fair bit of success. Though I must caution that the success rate is much lower than natal astrology (analysis of birth chart). The present method that I am using is called Horary astrology or Prashna Jyotish. In this method, I am asking this question to myself

"Will Saina Nahwal Win a Medal?"

In a sub-branch of Horary astrology called KP Horary (Krishnamurthi Paddhati Horary), you require one arbitrary number between 1-249 to answer any question. I have chosen '55' in order to get my answer. Also note that you can answer only one question at a time.

The query details are as follows -
Question: Will Saina Nehwal Win A Medal?
Date of Question: August 11, 2008
Time of Question: 7:07:40 PM IST
Place of Question: Agra

Now I want to talk a little technical, so if you are not an Astrologer, you can skip this section. The cuspal positions are as follows -

1st Cusp: Mercury Rasi, Rahu Nakshatra, Mars Sub
6th Cusp: Mars Rasi, Mercury Nakshatra, Mercury Sub
11th Cusp: Mars Rasi, Ketu Nakshatra, Mercury Sub

You can also cast the detailed KP Hoaray Chart from

For judging win, we need to consider house number 1 (self efforts), 6 (12th to 7th, defeating the opponent) and 11th (fulfilment of desire). I think 3rd house is also important as it shows courage.
Now you can see that Mars and Mercury are repeating quite often and I believe that they want to communicate something to me. Mars is in 3rd house (house of courage), being lord of 11 (fulfilment of desire) and 6th (defeating opponent). Mars is in Nakshatra of Sun, lord of 3rd in 2nd. So generally Mars is well placed. None of the detrimental houses viz 5, 7 & 12th are connected. 5, 7, & 12 are bad because these are good for opponent who is represented by 7th house.

Now have a look at Mercury. Mercury is in 3rd being lord of 1st and 4th. Out of these three 3rd and 1st are good for this question. Mercury is in Nakshatra of Ketu, the planet posited in 2nd, neutral to the question.

Mercury dasa, Rahu bhukti, and Mercury antardasa also looks OK to me, if not the great.

So according to my analysis, Saina Nehwal is going to win the medal. It is very difficult to predict precisely which medal it is going to be, but seeing the planetary positions, she is definitely a contender for Gold.

I wish her and India all the best.

Saina Nehwal lost and now out of the medal race. I take full responsibility of the failure of my predictions. While writing above post, I mentioned "I must caution that the success rate is much lower than natal astrology (analysis of birth chart)". Failure in above prediction also shows that more research is needed before we can predict outcome of such events. We are also looking into the reason for failure in the KP research forum and if you are interested, you can see some of the threads here -

The case of Pregnancy & KP System

Yesterday I showcased how we can use Saptamsa for doing detailed analysis on Pregnancy. Now using the same chart, I want to reemphasize the fact that divisions are very important in astrological analysis. Though this time, instead of using divisional chart, I want to use another divisions called Krishnamurti Paddhati (KP System). Krishnamurti Paddhati uses 249 divisions of zodiac and the smallest unit is called sub. (expert may differ because there are sub-sub and sub-sub-sub etc. but I want to keep it simple) The zodiac is divided similar to the division we use for Vimshattari Dasa calculation. I don’t want to go into the mathematical detail of this division, as there are many KP astrology software available for calculation purpose. is a free software which can give you detailed KP calculations.

The question under consideration was related to pregnancy issue due to hormonal imbalance and as a result of that the native is not able to conceive.
Time of Birth: 4:00 PM IST
Date of Birth: 15-05-1982
Place of Birth: Hydrabad (India)

As per KP System, 2, 5 & 11 houses are conductive for child birth whereas house 1, 4 and 12, negation of previous said houses, are not considered good for child birth.

Also in KP system all zodiac signs divided into two parts as follows –
Fruitful Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Semi-Fruitful Signs: Taurus, Libra, Capricorn, ad Sagittarius
Barren: Aries, Gemini, Leo and Virgo
Barren sings are also called sterile signs and are considered detrimental for the child birth.

Please note that I am using KP cuspal chart in this analysis. Now let us analyze the chart in the light of above mentioned KP System principles. The degree of 5th house comes under Saturn rasi, Mars Nakshatra and Rahu's sub. In traditional astrology, we generally consider only sign lord (Saturn in above case), but don’t use Nakshatra lord and Sub lord. Though in KP, we use all these planets. Saturn and Mars, cuspal sign lord and cuspal Nakshatra lord, both are gone to 12th house in KP chart which is malefic house and also 8th from the 5th house, not good for child birth.

The sub lord is the most important consideration for finding the possibility of happening the event, in this case child birth. Rahu, the sub lord of 5th cusp, is in Gemini in a barren sign, again shows the problem in progeny. As mentioned above, Barren sign are the sign which doesn’t allow child birth and should always be noted in case of the question of child birth. Rahu is in 9th house which is OK but in the Nakshatra of Jupiter who is in 1st house (12th to 2nd) and lord of 4th (12th to 5th – negation of 5th) and 7th. So even the KP system doesn’t give much hope in this case.

It is also worth noting that how all the systems give the same result. I personally prefer using multiple systems for cross-checking, though KP System is one of my favorite systems. Another point worth noting is that divisions are very important in astrological analysis and without using divisions, analysis is always going to be incomplete.

If time will permit, I'll try to demonstrate applicability and use of other astrological systems again using this chart.

Gemstones & Remedies

Which Gemstone will suit me?

Truth behind the Vedic-Jyotish kept it survived from the attacks of various races, isms and governments. Jyotish(astrology) is a divine knowledge or a Super-science handed over to Sage Garga by Lord Brahma the creator himself. Later several Rishis and Munis added their findings, which were revealed to them during the trance or Samadhi.

Ratna (Gemstone) is the inseparable part of the Vedic –Jyotish. Sages revealed the miracle and occult powers of various Ratna. They found that Ratnas have the capacity to fulfill the desire. They can help you to achieve health, happiness and prosperity including spirituality.

Naturally if somebody wears a negative Ratna he or she will suffer unluck will envelope him.

According to Vedic astrology every planet radiates particular vibrations and rays. Ratna transmit this particular rays and vibrations into the body from the cosmic world.

It is an ardent duty of a vedic astrologer to guide a seeker that what kind of rays and vibrations are positive or harmonious for an individual. In other words what Ratna is capable to bring the health happiness and prosperity to an individual.

I am sorry to say 90% of persons wear wrong Ratna and Gemstones. That cause them various kind of trouble from ordinary to serious in their life.

I can remember a day when an aged father looking sad person, approached to me for the consultation, his son was in jail for the crime of murder.

During the analysis of the horoscope, I noticed that Jupiter and Venus were extremely malefic in that chart. I found that the young must be wearing the Gemstones related to these planets. As everybody knows the Diamond represents Venus and Yellow –Sapphire represents Jupiter.
These stones were very much negative for him and may cause him havoc. I told my finding to that gentleman. He was surprised by my bold saying and confirmed the findings. I thanked to the Vedic-brahmins who passed this great knowledge of astrology to humanity.

I have observed that lot of learned astrologers are able to pinpoint the negative and positive planets in the horoscope of a Jatak( seeker). So according to their knowledge to remove the negative effects of the planets they suggest the gemstones related to the malefic planet. According to me this is highly wrong.

It is a common fact that every Ratna is a small representative of a particular planet. It is capable to transfer the rays and vibrations of that planet. If you wear, it will transfer all this to you. so if you wear Ratna or Gem representing the negative planet. It will increase the power of the negative planet in your body too. It will bring unluck, problems and misery. In other word if you are increasing the power of your enemy.

According to great astrologer late. Shri Krishnamurthy it is wrong and actually doing the harm (wearing the Gemstones related to the negative planets). He says- Suppose Venus has caused Diabetes, If one suggests that sweets are governed by Venus and one taking much of sweets, will reduce the evil effects of Venus. How far this learned astrologer will be helpful to the patient.

Again, if Mars donates arrogance, independence, disobedience, etc. and thereby Mars threatening dispute among husband and wife, what is the meaning of suggesting to put on Coral(Moonga) indicated by Mars. Suppose due to evil Mars, one’s hut is in fire. Consider how wise the learned adviser is, if he suggests to pour highly inflammable ones one the fire, since inflammable governed by Mars.

If Saturn indicated laziness, lethargic and slow in one’s action, how can there by any benefit by painting the wall with blue color( blue color represents the Saturn), purchasing the blue cloth for curtain and blue car for his use. The result will be similar to an old (Saturn) deaf(Saturn) person crossing the road the Saturn afflicted driver or owner delaying in reducing the speed by applying the brake. Readers know what the results would be.

If Moon is evil and it threatens loose motion, if one suggests a liquid purgative to the patient what will be the result? If Moon threatens, drowning in one’s horoscope and if one uses Pearl according to an advice. Do you know what will happen? Mind you, Moon will keep him for some hours by the side of the Pearls at the bottom of the sea and after a few hours, lift his body up the surface and carry the bloated dead body to the shores.

So, what is the wise suggestion? Prof. Krishnamurthy says that when a house is in fire, we throw water and sand: when one is lazy, we give stimulant: when there is diabetes, we give insulin to control. Therefore, that which will nullify the evi is to be suggested. That planet, which is auspicious, is to be taken. Its Gem alone is to be used.

So to increase the power of positive planet one should wear the gemstone related to that. In other words try to increase the power of your friends. If they become powerful they will bound to help you.

In brief find the positive and negative planets in the horoscope. Wear the gemstones connected to the positive planets and perform Graha-shanti for the negative planets.

But most important aspect of Ratna and Gemstone’s is "time to wear". All the texts of astrology are agreed on one point that the most important is the time of buying and time of wearing. If you buy and wear a Gemstone at negative time it will bound to bring you bad luck , illness, loss, and failure etc.

One should not forget the puja(worship) of gemstone, according to his or her capacity. Vedic Astrology says all planets are the representative of various Gods and Goddesses. For the benefit of our readers we are giving a brief list of the planets their Gemstones and related God and Goddesses.

Tribute to KS Krishnamurti

Today is the day when Shri KS Krishnamurti, the man behing KP System (also called Krishnamurti Paddhati), left us on 29th March 1972. This post is my tribute to that genius sole.

Astrology is a vast subject with so many books and systems. I myself have studied few of these systems including Parashari, Jaimini, Western, Lal Kitab and Krishnamurthi Paddhati. With the Internet, it has become easier to keep in touch with the latest research in this field. Shri Sheshadri Iyer, and Gopal Krishna Meena etc. are some names that we see quoted in various magazines and books as genuine researchers. We also see astrologers like BV Raman are regarded as people who revitalized astrology during the dooming period. There are others like Pt. Roop Chand Joshi, creator of Lal Kitab, who also contributed astrology with his fresh thoughts and unique approach. There are few more names that we can add to this list of astrology contributors, though it is not the purpose of this post.

Among all these learned and unique souls, I think that Shri KS Krishnamurti held one very special position. There are various reasons to say that. First of all, he is probably the only astrologer who thought fresh and innovative. Unlike Shri Sheshadri Iyer and lots of other astrologers, who tried to find answers of their questions in existing texts, KSK never feared to experiment and adopt something altogether new and different. He also never feared to use harsh language for the methods that don't work. One another important feature of Shri KSK's teaching is that he taught understanding the mind of 21st century. 21st century mind wanted a method which is well defined in nature and produce results continuously without any ambiguity of application.

I normally fear calling astrology a science because I think that astrology is much beyond the science and cannot be explained using present tools and methods of science. Though I have no fear to say that KP System has tried to bridge the gap between science and astrology. Being a software professional, I personally believe that there will be a time when we will be able to create a software programs which will be able to predict accurately certain aspects of human life. I am able to say this just because we have a system called KP System. I can not think of any other system which can take computerization of predictive astrology to that level.

Another important feature of KSK is that he never claimed that god came in his dream and told the secret of astrology or he has some divine power that helped him. He always emphasized that the practical research is required and that is the only way to improve astrology. He himself shown that approach and also cleared the path for future researches.

The researches like usage of placidus house division system with nirayan zodiac, 249 divisions of zodiac, sub lord, planet gives result of it's nakshatra, KP Horary are amazing contributions by a single person in one single life. Not only he figured these out, he also told use how to use all these collectively in a form of a system. It is not that I am being emotional due to Mahanirvana divas. In fact, these are the thoughts that come in my mind whenever I study astrology. In whatever small I learnt in astrology, based on that I can say that the KP System is the biggest advancement in astrology during a long period.

My tribute to Krishnamurti ji. You have shown light of god to us.

Fortuna And Other Arabic Parts

In our KP System discussion forum, we are having an intense discussion on the fast moving point 'Fortuna' (also called Pars Fortuna or Part of Fortune). Shri K. S. Krishamurthi, the inventor of KP System, mentioned about Fortuna in the second reader, but he really didn't given much detail. The application and examples are also missing. While doing some googling, I found this article very useful. Please check it out.

Best KP Astrology Books

We at our KP System Forum, see this query very often - "What are the best KP System Books" available in market. Due to regularity of this question being raised, I thought to write it here. In my opinion following books are best suited to learn KP System (Krishnamurthi Paddhati) -

1. Six Reades by Sri K.S. Krishnamurthi, the inventor of KP System (more details can be found at 6 readers of KP Astrology
2. Nakshatra Chintamani (3 parts) By Chandrakant Bhat
3. Books by Jyotindra Hasbe (Available in Marathi, the time I read them)
4. Astrology & Athrishta, magazine edited by Sri KSK, (old copied would be available)
5. Astrosecrets & Krishnamurti Padhdhati (3 parts) by M.P. Shanmugham & K. Subramaniam

Other than Sri KSK's KP System, there are some more systems developed on top of KP System e.g. four steps theory and cuspal interchange theory. I discourage any starter of KP System to go through these theories before understanding K P System properly. It can confuse the learner.

I am sure you will be looking for the place in your town where you can purchase the books. I have created a KP Bookshps section in our KP Astrology Community where you can find the KP booksellers around the world.

Fundamental Principles of K P System

Grouping of House
Placidus Cusp
Some other western Ideas like aspects and progression
Improtance to Nakshatra
Owner is less powerful than occupant in signifying the hosue matter
K P Ayanamsa
Only Vimshottari Dasa is acceptable
No Yoga acceptable
No Divisisional charts acceptable
Ruling Planets
More mathematical calculations required
Less importance to planets

Vedic Astrologers Directory

Today I created databases in Lal Kitab and KP System discussion groups. I think it will prove useful for finding expert astrologers in your locality. If you are either Lal Kitab or KP astrologer, you can get yourself registered in the directory. Here are the links -

Lal Kitab astrologers directory - for Lal Kitab astrologers

KP astrologers directory - for KP System astrologers

Remember that both of these databases are accessible only to group members. So you will have to become group member in order to get yourself registered.

K.P. Astrology Books

Books and Books and Books and ……. So I am writing a lot about books. I have written about books on classical astrology and books on Lal Kitab (at least you have download links now.) I am also planning to write all books available on Lal Kitab subject. Recently there are lots of books on this subject that are not just translation/transliteration.

Anyway, I am often asked about what book one should read to lean KP System. Nowadays there are many books on the subject. KP's own publications brings few new books every year in the market. But I have my own opinion. IMHO one should read only six readers by Sri K.S. Krishnamurti i.e. -

1. Casting the Horoscope (1st reader)
2. Fundamental Principles of Astrology (2nd reader)
3. Predictive Stellar Astrology (3rd reader)
4. Marriage, Married life and children (4th reader)
5. Transit Gocharapala Nirayam (5th reader)
6. Horary Astrology (6th reader)

These books will give you sufficient idea of the system. I am not very sure but probably "Astrology & Ahrishta", the magazine edited by Sri KSK, is also available in hard-bound format. If that is available, you can purchase them. Those are another good way to learn Krishnamurti Padhdhati. Other than Sri KSK's own books, there are not too many good books to learn the system. I remember two other books those are sufficient good. One is "Nakshatra Chintamani" (as far as I remember the name) by Mr. Bhat (again I don't remember the full name of author). This book is available in xerox format only. Other books are three books set by Mr. Jyotindra Hasve. Primarily these books are in Marathi and I am not aware whether Hindi/English edition is available or not. But I guess it would be available. As I told in introduction there are many books and many authors. But these are the books that I like most.

P.S.: I also receive lots of requests for available KP software. I am planning to write in detail about that. Meanwhile you can have a look on KP astrology software of the company promoting this blog.

Lack of Astrological Resources

I tried (in fact, tried very hard) to find some websites on astrology which can help serious student of astrology as well as provide some genuine information related to astrology. But as you might guess - without any success. We all know that the present world is full of hoax information related to vedic astrology. I find it extremely difficult to find genuine and reliable information on this subject on Internet. For example it is difficult to find any website pertaining to KP, Lal Kitab, Jaimini, Mundane, Varshaphal, Ashtakvarga on any other branch of vedic astrology. Forget about the genuine or false information, it is difficult to find information at all. Seeing the unavailability of resources on Internet, few years back, I started few discussion groups on yahoogroups. In those groups, my Lal Kitab and KP Astrology group has especially gained a lot of popularity. These groups are still the only source to understand these braches of astrology on Internet. Seeing the success of my technology blogs, I decided to try this concept with astrology too. I hope this blog will be able to bring genuine information to you.
