5. How to Analyze Married Life.

6. Systems' Approach for Interpreting Horoscopes.


Existence of confusions and contradictions, lack of a systematic approach for interpreting horoscopes and the repeated requests of the students of the divine science of Vedic Astrology impelled us to take us the subject and present it to the lovers of Astrology in the form of a book based on techniques developed for systematic interpretation of horoscopes. The Systems' Approach presented is based on the synthesis of valid principles enunciated in the classical texts, commentaries and the empirical studies undertaken by the authors.

The objective of this book is to equip the students and practicing astrologers of the divine science of Vedic Astrology with tools to:-

1. Clearly delineate the results of planetary influences in a nativity.

2. Identify the purpose of the querent from the horoscope without its being disclosed.

3. Increase probability of correct predictions.

4. Apply the principles on uniform basis.

5. Suggest effective astral remedies.

The job looks so tedious and time consuming whereas the Systems' Approach helps one in delineating the planetary positions to one's satisfaction and to realize one's objective to help mankind through analysis of planetary influences in the natal chart in an easy manner. The perfection in astrological analysis comes with experience but with application of the Systems' Approach one achieves success comparatively, very fast.

The basis of Vedic Astrology is the Karma theory based on the premise that the planetary influences inn 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.

For understanding concepts and to apply them, the first and foremost requirement is concentration. The concentration can only be achieved when a person is mentally at peace. The said state of mind helps the creative faculties of a man to develop, which is god gifted. However, efforts can be made to achieve the same by following the teachings of our ancient rishis (spiritual and learned persons). Those who have no lust, anger, arrogance, pride; are without greed, excitement, attachment and are free from fraud, hypocrisy and deceit can attain mental peace and spirituality which are necessary for learning and mastering the divine science of Vedic Astrology. The other attributes are developing feeling of contentment practice of kindness, generosity and not to hanker after materialistic pursuits. The divine science of Vedic Astrology propounds and believes that the actions/deeds of human beings known as operates in the form of strength of the significators of spirituality - ninth house, fourth house and the planets, the Sun and Jupiter.

While for comprehension of the Systems' Approach the matter has been taken up in an exhaustive manner through various case studies, the prominent delineations taken up are only illustrative. The book brings up some unique deviations from the traditional approach, which will show their relevance when applied to the real life case studies by learned readers. The studies will surely help the learned readers in achieving the objectives set forth by the book. The book has a separate chapter devoted to the methodology of initiation of astrological remedial measures from deriving the full benefits from the knowledge of astrological interpretive sills and the remedial measures.

In the first edition, the analysis of case studies had been based primarily on the functional nature of the planets. In the second edition the other features like the applicability of conjunctions and aspects, transit and multi-dimensional role of planets were included. The third edition included the advanced predictive techniques and the FAQs. The current edition includes the updated predictive techniques and multidimensional significators involved in interpreting the planetary influences for various facets of life.

Some fundamental changes have been suggested in the background of solid reasons. The aim is to achieve predictive accuracy and for this, the Systems' Approach is dependable. Moreover, fundamental changes have been suggested to simplify analysis. This approach is universally applicable to all horoscopes with one single technique of analysis. This enables one to identify the area of a problem, the positive traits, the strengths and weaknesses of various planetary configurations right at birth without any explanation given by the person seeking astrological consultation.

Birth particulars have been withheld in some case studies out of respect for the privacy of the natives, even though the inclusion of such charts has been considered necessary.

We acknowledge with thanks cooperation extended by various astrological journals, officers of International Institute of Predictive Astrology, Fairfield, USA and Mr. Jorge Angelino from Portugal in putting forth our views before the learners of the divine science of Vedic Astrology.



The divine science of Vedic Astrology is one of the most useful bodies of knowledge available to the mankind. We all know prevention is better than cure. The divine science of Vedic Astrology helps us in giving dependable indications in the fields of maintaining good health, learning, acquiring professional knowledge, choosing the professional venture and becoming useful to the family, society, country and humanity at large. The premise of Vedic Astrology is that the planetary influences in one's natal chart or horoscope fake shape based on one's deeds of past lives. The strong planets bless the native with all happiness including birth in a resourceful family, good opportunities for education, comfortable life and opportunity for spiritual development. The weak or afflicted planets cause delays, troubles and setbacks in life. The divine science of Vedic Astrology gives us opportunity to mould planetary influences through good deeds, propitiation of planets and strengthening of planets.

The major constituents of the divine science of Vedic Astrology are the signs, houses, planets and planetary periods. These have been discussed in the book, "Self - Learning Course in Astrology" and to keep brevity, we 'are not repeating the same in this book.

With this background in mind to make use of the divine science of Vedic Astrology for various aspects of life we are bringing out this book.

Essentials of A Horoscope Analysis Natal chart or radical chart or horoscope or natal positions are the positions of the ascendant and planets in various signs as noted for the date, time and place of the birth. Natal positions, therefore, are fixed. The planetary positions noted with reference to a particular chart for subsequent periods are known as transits or transit positions.

2. 2. First of all we prepare a horoscope. Thereafter, we have to identify the functional benefic planets (favorable planets) and the functional malefic planets (unfavorable planets) for a particular person from the horoscope. The birth data can/ should be checked with the help of some questions regarding the native's background based on the planetary influences in the chart.

3. 3. Check the strength of strong planets in the birth chart or horoscope. The main factor for correct predictions is the real strength of the planet. We come to know about the weakness of a planet, when analyzed in detail, though apparently it may be very powerful. This weakness cannot be detected in a superficial analysis. The weakness may be of any type that is occupying a debilitated sign, being combust, positioned in malefic houses, aspected/ conjunct with the functional malefic planets, joining a debilitated amsa or divisional chart, being in the ending/ beginning of a sign, joining the sign of a weak and/ or afflicted planet, joining an afflicted mooltrikona sign, etc.

4. The weakness of natal planets cannot be made up fully even by joining good houses or exaltation signs in Vargas (divisional charts), obtaining maximum benefic points iri ashtakvarga and participation in good combinations with the lords of the benefic houses. Analyzing the role of a weak dispositor in creating weakness to a particular planet requires special mention here. Whenever a particular planet occupies apparently sound or even an average position and at the same time its dispositor is weak, the particular planet also becomes weak and it fails to protect or promote the significations rules by it. The strength of the planet is dependent on the strength of its dispositor.
