- Prediction Rules in Astrology

Kiran Rama (kiran.rama@.co.in)






SI No Date Version Description

1 2-Feb-2008 0.1 First Cut released






Here is a honest attempt by Kiran Rama (kiran.rama@.co.in) to put together the first

version of the beginner rules in astrology

Astrology is useful only if it can make accurate predictions and not just post mortem

Based on this premise, I have made a set of rules that beginners can use to make


I thank my informal guru Sreenadhji and the discussions in ancient indian astrology group

that improved my understanding. I also thank PVR Narasimha Raoji of Jagannatha Hora

fame - which is the most magnificent astrology software in the world for calculations

This is version 0.1 of the attempts and I will soon be adding more versions with examples

and modified rules



CHAPTER 1: First decide, what you want to look at:



First see the query - which aspect of life does it tackle -



For physical body/appearance see lagna and sun



for earned wealth see 2nd house and jupiter (also see 3rd because it is 2nd from




for younger siblings and courage see the 3rd house and mars. also see 5th house

(3rd from 3rd)



for mother and wealth through real estate see 4th house (also see 7th house, it is

4th from 4th)



for children and intelligence see 5th house and 9th house (5th from 5th - relation

with children)



for enemies/diseases see 6th house and mars (also see 11th house - 6th from 6th)



for spouse/partner/travel see 7th house and 1st house (7th from 7th). also see




for longevity/mangalya see 8th house, also see 3rd house (8th from 8th) and 7th

house (house of death - 12th from 8th). also see saturn



for teacher, good luck, bhagya see 9th house and 5th house (9th from 9th). also

see jupiter



- 2 - Prediction Rules in Astrology

Kiran Rama (kiran.rama@.co.in)



for job/professional achievements see the 10th house and mercury and also see

7th house (10th from 10th)



for gains, elder siblings see 11th house and jupiter and also see 9th house (11th

from 11th)



for losses see 12th house and also see 11th house (12th from 12th) and see









Rule 1:

For each house, things signified by the house will take the "good for native/will be enjoyed

by native" colour if the house lord is in sustana.

Reverse will happen if house lord is in dustana

Rule 2:

For each house, things signified by the house will take the "good for native/will be enjoyed

by native" colour if natural benefics are in the house/aspecting the house

Reverse will happen if natural malefics are in the house/aspecting the house

This is an addition to rule 1. If both rule 1 and rule 2 are positive, then very good for

native, if one is good and one is bad, mixed results, if both bad, bad results

Rule 3:

For each house if it is good/bad also confirm by looking at primary significator and the

other house. E.g: for Spouse look at 7th house. But also look at Venus and 2nd house

(7th from 7th)

Rule 4:

Remember for rule 1 and 2: there is a modifier: No house lord will give bad results when

he is exalted or his own house.

House lord will give bad results when he is debilitated

remember exaltation is more powerful than own house

Rule 5:

No house lord will harm his friend's house if he is posited in the house

E.g: Natural Malefic in his friend's house x will not harm x because it is his friend's house

reverse occurs for enemy house

Rule 6:



- 3 - Prediction Rules in Astrology

Kiran Rama (kiran.rama@.co.in)



Malefic going to/aspecting a house destroys the things signified by the house. So malefic

in sustana is very bad because all good things are destroyed. But a catch here:

If malefic and house signify same thing it will be amplified

Sun is a sattva planet in the house of dharma - e.g: Sun is a sattwik planet and him in the

9th house is good and can make native religious minded and spiritual

So in above case, sun in 9th house though a natural malefic is a good placement

So malefics in dustana houses are good as they destroy the things signified by dustana

houses and all of that is bad - but they add their own colour to these houses and so being

malefics, still not much good is done but certainly some reduction of harm - unless the

house and the planet signified the same harm

Rule 7:

All planets/house lord significance are amplified in the 11th house irrespective of whether

they are debilitated or enemy house or exaltation or own house

Reason is that 11th house is special of upachaya houses and increases significance of

anything that is placed there

Rule 8:

Sustana house lord in any house is good for that house. E.g: Lagna Lord is the most

auspicious and his presence in any house is good for that house

After lagna lord, 10th lord is next most auspiscious.

Other auspiscious house lords are the lords of the 4th, 9th and 11th

Rule 9:

Modifier for rule 2: Natural Malefic will cease to be malefic for a natal chart if he is:

a) yogakaraka

b) exalted

c) own house

d) vargottama (same sign in natal chart and navamsa)

obviously debilitation will worsen its effects

e) he is a functional benefic lord of lagna, 10th, 4th, 9th or 11th

In case where natural malefic is lord of a sustana house or 2 sustana houses, his malefic

tone is reduced.

Opposite happens for benefic houses

Rule 10:

take nature of planet into account when you make predictions for planet house. Say Sun is

in the 7th house. 7th house is marriage/spouse adn Sun is a planet who is hot and

signifies vitality, virility. so sun in 7th house (passion) can make person extremely


passionate and run after women and immorality

I am learning astrology.

But my kundli is too complicated to predict for a begineer.

I am giving my details.

Please tell me what to predict.

Date and time of Birth : 11/10/1986 , 14:45

Place : Morbi(morvi) ,Gujarat, India

Gender : Female


Please help me in solving following questions :

1)Do I have love marriage or arrange?

2)Time of marriage

3)Do I have "kal sarpa yoga"?

4)chances of foreign travel


According to my analysis :

lagna chart :

Moon and Mars are in capricorn and in lagna.

Moon is the 7th lord.

Moon and Mars are aspecting 7th house.

Sun and ketu(in virgo) are in 9th house.

Rahu(in pises) is in 3rd house.

lagna lord saturn in 11th and aspecting 5th house.

Atmakarka is Venus.


Navamsa :

Taurus lagna and venus in navamsa lagna.

Sun at 4th but in its own sign.

7th lord mars(in pisces) is with (debilitated and vargottama) rahu.

Ketu(vargottama) is at 5th (in virgo) and aspecting mars and rahu.

There is "parivartana yoga" between 11th(lord jupiter )and 12th lord (lord mars).

hi,all i'm new member my name is ramakrishna. i want to do ph.d in astrology. i'm not completed M.A in astrology but i completed M.C.A. is there any possible to do ph.d without completing m.a in astology.

Dear Rama Krishna


How you expect to do Phd in Astrology without any basic qualificaitons?


Can any one do Phd in Computers without MCA/M.tech Computers? (Your subject)


In some exceptional cases Universities may issue Doctorates basing on their experience in their fields.


For example - Famous Indian Astrologer Sri B.V. Raman was awarded Doctrate by Pythogorean Univercity in 1947 like wise other universities also awarded him with honarary doctorates as he has done a lot of Research in Astrology.


If you have interested in Astrology do from begining.


I wish you best of luck.
