The three numbers (including zero) under each asterism covers the whole year from 13 April 2016 to 13 April 2017 i,e; each number rules for four months. For example, for Aswini borns, seven rules from 13 April 2016 to 16 August 2016; Number 1 rules from 17 August 2016 to 15 December 2016, 4 rules from 16 December 2016 13 April 2017. Zero in the beginning indicates nishphalam and illness. Zero in the middle points to loss of peace of mind and also frequent financial worry. Zero in the end may cause loss of money, agony and misfortune. If three zeros rule one after another in a year there may be risk to one’s life. Odd Numbers bestow prosperity and monitory gain. Even Numbers give mixed results
