Accurate and powerful rules for reading horoscopes

Rule 1: How will you know that you would gain wealth from a particular relative? Simple, firstly 2nd lord should be strong enough, Secondly, 2nd lord should establish powerful linkage with:

  • 3rd lord in an auspicious house (to gain wealth through brother or friends),
  • 4th lord in an auspicious house (to gain wealth through through mother),
  • 5th lord in an auspicious house (through children),
  • 6th lord in an auspicious house (through enemies),
  • 7th lord in an auspicious house (through spouse),
  • 9th lord in an auspicious house (through father)

Rule 2: Strength of an EXALTED planet (UCHCH bal) = Strength of a planet in 1st house (KENDRA Bal) = Strength of planet having directional strength (DIG bal) = Strength of planet having HORA bal = 1 RUPA or 60 VIRUPAS. Hence even if a planet is placed in a 1st house or have dig bal or have hora bal, it has the strength equivalent to an exalted planet which is 1 RUPA. 

Rule 3: When Moon has complete Paksha Bal (at the time of Full Moon and New Moon), it is actually DOUBLE EXALTED as such Moon gets 2 RUPA of strength, an exalted planet has only 1 RUPA of strength.

Rule 4: 1st house is the most powerful Kendra. The strength of the planets occupying the 4 Kendras (1st, 4th, 7th and 10th) has been distinguished by the astrologers in the following manner; It is ¼th i.e. 25% in the 4th house; ½ or 50% in the 10th, ¾ or 75% in the 7th and full or 100% in the 1st or Lagna, thus increasing it by ¼ or 25% in each stage. Another reason being that 1st house is also a trikona.

Rule 5: You may be having very powerful planets in your chart, but that power is of NO USE, if the Mahadasha of that planet, do not come in the peak time (16 to 50 years of age) of your life.

Rule 6: Mahadasha of any planet have antardashas of 9 planets [8 Different planets + 1 antardasha of the same planet]. In other words, if you really want Mahadasha of any planet, to give you completely auspicious results, then you inevitably need the support of 8 other planets, since those 8 planets will also come in the antardashas. Crux of the matter is, if out of 9 planets 8 or 7 planets are very weak in your birth chart after considering all the shad bal and non shad bal factors, THEN EVEN 1 or 2 STRONG PLANET’s (In Isolation) cannot give you auspicious results in its Mahadasha. Understanding of this rule requires nothing more than a common sense.

Rule 7: Planet that occupies 3 continuous houses on either side with respect to any planet are considered to be his temporary friends. Rest are temporary enemies. For example if a planet is placed in the 1st house, then planets present in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 12th and 11th houses will become its temporary friends. Please note that the concept of temporary friends is different from the concept of permanent friendship or natural friends. (Like Saturn and Venus are natural friends or Jupiter and Mars are natural friends)

Rule 8: The native lives for 108 years, if the 8th House is not occupied, while Ascendant is free from malefic residence and Jupiter is in an Angle. A span of over 108 years is granted, if Jupiter and Venus are in an Angle, while there are no malefics in Trines and the 8th. Predict 120 years of life, if Venus is in the Ascendant, Jupiter is in an Angle other than the Ascendant and the 8th House is not occupied by malefics.

Rule 9: If Jupiter is in Cancer Ascendant along with Venus, or the Moon, while Angles, Trines and the 8th House are not occupied by malefics, one’s longevity is comparable to that of Gods.

Rule 10: The person will live for MORE THAN 120 Years, if only Jupiter, Moon are placed in the Cancer ascendant, only Venus, Mercury are placed in other Kendras, trines are free from malefics and 8th house is unoccupied.

Note Rules 7, 8 and 9 can be understood in a nutshell like this: If no malefic planets occupy 4 quadrants (i.e. 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th houses), 5th, 9th and 8th houses, 8th house is unoccupied, Jupiter and Venus are in quadrants especially in the 1st house (preferably exalted or in own sign or in Mooltrikona sign) then Native will be free from diseases and will live for as many years as he/she wants or native will have a boon of “Ichamrityu”. (Note, all these planetary house placements should be taken as per the cusp chart). You May study the birth chart or Shri Ganga Putra Bhishma as an example who lived for 162 years during the times of Mahabharatha. His birth details are given in this article of mine, just click on this link.

Rule 12: The lord of the 1st house in close conjunction with the Sun and Venus will make the native BLIND from his very birth. Similarly, if the lords of the house signifying the father or the brother or the mother or the son or the wife of the native are in close conjunction with the Sun and Venus, an intelligent astrologer should predict blindness to the respective relative concerned with the native. (Here overall auspiciousness status of Sun, Venus and the house lord must be checked before declaring the result).

Rule 16: Whenever Ketu is placed close to any planet, it will always give native a great understanding about the parameters as well as actual purpose of that planet. Hence Ketu helps in enhancing the qualities of that planet.

Rule 17: 1st house is our own self and the reflection of your own self in the eyes of the world is our reputation. 7th house is the reflection of the 1st house. 7th house also represents our spouse who makes us complete. If the 1st house is lord Shiva who can destroy the world, then 7th house is the Maa Parvati or Maa Shakti, who represents the power or energy through which the world can be destroyed. If the 1st house is lord Vishnu who sustains the world, 7th house is the Maa Laxmi who represents the wealth and prosperity through which the world is sustained. If the 1st house is lord Brahma who creates the world, 7th house is Maa Saraswati who represents the knowledge through which the world is created. 7th house represent our CHARACTER. If someone has a great character, he or she will surely have GREAT STRENGTH (Maa Parvati), WEALTH (All forms of Maa Laxmi, not limited to dhan laxmi) and KNOWLEDGE (Maa Sarawati) at his/her disposal.
