Horary is the branch of astrology, which deals with answering questions. The astrologer can make predictions
from these questions, by judging from a horoscope cast for the moment that the question is asked. One of
the differences between Horary and other branches is its reliance on a simple set of rules. These rules are
important in the judgment of the horoscope. No other branch of Astrology relies on rules to the same
extent as Horary. The person who asks the question is called querent and the question is called query.
When a person meets (it may be in phone, WhatsApp or in any social media or in person) an Astrologer and
expresses his question, the planetary positions for that moment (date and time) and for that place (the
place where the Astrologer is) are calculated and the horoscope chart is drawn. There are some rules that
usually decide the outcome to the questions. Sometimes, it may be necessary to seek further clarification
from the querent. The astrologer will be aware of the deeper meanings. It is beautifully described by
Varahamihir that, one should approach a learned Astrologer in the morning, with fruits, flowers, and
money. Facing the East, making the curtesy salutation to the Astrologer, the querent should put only one
question. But the accuracy, while still valid, will be upto the 7th question.
Minimum Consideration, before the Judgment:
There is a condition in a Horary chart that cautions
against reading the chart, because it might not be fit
to judge. A fundamental consideration is that, only
sincere questions should be produced.
Change of place
- Less than 3 degrees in rising sign, depicts a
premature question. More than 27 degrees rising
depicts a post-mature question.
- Moon or Asc in Via Combusta. (The area
between 150 Libra and 150 Scorpio is termed the
Via Combusta i.e. "Fiery Road") indiacates 'Not
safe to judge'.
- Saturn retrograde in the 1st house means matters
will generally not work out well. Saturn in the 7th
house depicts Astrologer's judgment may be impaired,
unless the question is about a seventh house subject.
- 7th house ruler, afflicted, means that Astrologer
will have difficulty in answering the question.
- Moon, Void of Course, means that nothing will
come out in the matter, unless the principal
significators are very strong. The Moon may function,
when Void of Course in Taurus, Cancer, Sagittarius,
- The Ascendant ruler being combust by the Sun
means that the querent is quite worried, and the
Astrologer may be working with inadequate
- If the Prasna Ascendant is Movable sign, there will
be change in the present position. If the Ascendant is
the Fixed sign, the position of Prasna will not be
changed; If the Prasna Ascendant is dual sign, the results depend upon the degrees of the Ascendant. If
the degrees are nearer to Movable sign, the results is
Movable sign's; the degrees are nearer to Fixed sign,
the result is Fixed sign's.
- If there is a relationship between Lagnesh (Lagna
lord) and Karyesh (the Lord of the house, for which the
Prasna is related), Prasna will give favourable results.
- The Movable sign behaves like Fixed sign and Fixed
sign acts as Moveable sign, when natural malefic planets
stays or aspects that sign.
- If there is favourable Tajika (discussed later)
yoga between Lagnesh and Karyesh, the Prasna will
be successful one.
- Lagna lord and Moon should be in good houses.
- The Prasna Ascendant and Natal Ascendant
should be in good axis.
- Transfer or disturbance from one's position has
to be determined from the Lagna, rising at the time.
- Success or prosperity can be seen from the 4th
- Absence from one's home is indicated from 10th
house; return to his place from the 7th house. The
positions of the several planets at the time of query,
should be considered. The time of return will be
synchronous, with the entry of a planet, into the 4th
conjunction or aspect of the malefic, then only the
"fall or occurrence" referred to above, will happen.
Similarly the "occurrence" does not take place, when
the Fixed sign is free from the aspect or conjunction
of malefic planets. Will the occurrence happen or
not in the case of Dual sign? If the sign is aspected
by its lord or benefic aspect is much and the malefic
aspect is less, the "fall" will come to pass else not.
Reckoning the Number of Days of Stay Abroad
- Similarly if the 4th house is Moveable and
conjuncted with or aspected by its lord or a benefic
planet, there will be acquisition of houses etc or else
- Regarding the absence of a person, analyse the
10th house. If it is Moveable and conjoined with or
aspected by a benefic, then there will be no absence.
Similarly if the 7th house be so subjected, there will be
no return from abroad. Otherwise if the 7th house is
conjoined with or aspected by a benefic or it's Lord,
return from abroad should be predicted. The number
of days that have elapsed since his return, will
correspond to the number of degrees progressed by
the planet, in the 4th house. It may also happen that the
person would return within so many days that are
required by any planet which is coming to the 4th house.
Whichever bhava is aspected or occupied by its lord
or by any of the benefics, the prosperity of the bhava
is ensured. But if the malefics should occupy or aspect
any bhava, the destruction of the bhava would have
to be predicted. Mars, the Sun, Saturn and the waning
Moon are termed as malefics. Mercury, when
conjoined with any of these, is inauspicious. The rest
are benefic. Benefic posited in the several bhavas
beginning with "Body" "Wealth" etc promote their
prosperity, while malefics in the same position cause
their decay. Benefics in the 6th destroy enemies. All
planets, when occupying the 12th and 8th places, do
not prove auspicious. The Moon with her digits full,
if posited in lagna, will indicate the safe-return.
Success or failure of the errand
When a benefic planet is in the lagna or its rising
Navamsa is a benefic one and when the lagna or its
rising Navamsa happens to be a Sheersodaya sign
success may be predicted. If the lagna be occupied
by a malefic or if the rising Navamsa be owned by a
malefic and if the rising sign or Navamsa be a
Prishtodaya, failure will be the result.
If it be
mixed, we should say that success will result, only
after great difficulty. If malefic planets be rising in Sheersodaya sign, or if Prishtodaya Rasi is with
benefic planets, success may be accomplished, only
after a great deal of difficulty. If both benefic and
malefic are there, after a careful comparison of the
relative strength of the lagna concerned or its
particular varga, result should be prediction.
Genuineness of a question:
- There will be hurdles in the results pertaining to
the bhava, where retrograde planet is posited in the
- If retrograde natural benefic planets get the
lordship of benefic houses, there will be repetition in
the work done, to get benefic result.
- If retrograde natural malefic planets get the lordship
of benefic houses, there will be hurdles and mental worry
before getting success.
- If retrograde natural benefic planet get the lordship
of 6,8,12 houses, it is difficult to get good results.
- If retrograde natural malefic planets get lordship
of 6,8,12 houses, there will be repetition in the work
done, hurdles, and the results will not be favourable.
To practise Prasna, these Tajika Yogas need to
- If a strong malefic planet is situated in the
ascendant or 7th house of Prashna, then the questioner
- If Moon is situated in the Ascendant of Prashna,
and Sun, Mercury and Saturn are situated together
in any one of the Kendra (1, 4, 7, and 10), he is putting
a fake question.
- If Moon is in the ascendant, Saturn is in Kendra,
and Mercury is combust, then the questioner is not
asking the question, reliably.
- If Mars and Mercury have their full aspect on
Moon, then the questioner is asking the question for
enjoyment purpose only. If Moon and Jupiter have
their inimical aspect (Tajika aspect planets aspecting
from their Kendra houses) on the Ascendant lord and
7th lord, then the questioner is asking the question for
- If Mars is the lord of 6th house and is situated in
the ascendant with Saturn, then the questioner is doing
- If Moon and Jupiter have their friendly aspect on
the Ascendant lord and 7th lord, then the questioner
- If auspicious planets are situated in the Ascendant
or aspected by them, then the questioner is a pleasant
- If auspicious planets are situated in 7th house or
aspected by them, the questioner will not be cunning.
- If Moon and Jupiter are in Kendra and Trine house,
in friendly sign or Mercury and Jupiter are in the
ascendant or 7th house, then the questioner is easy
- If Mars is aspecting Moon and Mercury, then the
questioner is examining the knowledge of Astrologer.
- If a faster planet with less longitude is backwards
of a slower planet with a greater longitude, Ithasala
Yoga is caused. If the latter planet is ahead of the
former by a minute, it is a complete Ithasala or
- When a faster-moving planet is ahead of a slowermoving
planet by one degree, Easarapha or
Musaripha is caused. This is an unfavourable
- When there is no mutual aspect between two
planets, but a 3rd planet which is faster, is in between,
in aspect with both, then this faster-moving planet
transfers light from the other faster planet to slower
one. This is Nakta Yoga.
- When there is no aspect between two lords and a
slower-moving planet is in-between these two lords,
involved in aspect with to them, and then the slowermoving
planet will transfer light from the other faster
of the two lords to the slower. This is Yamaya yoga.
- When there is Ithasala between two planets and
the Moon is also involved in Ithasala with one of the
planets, the resulting yoga is Kamboola.
Will Chennai win the ISL in 2018?
Indian Super League (ISL):
FC vs Chennaiyin FC in the final of the 2017-18.
Match date was 17/03/2018, time was 8PM. Just 15
minutes before it came to my mind whether Chennai
will win the ISL in 2018? Jupiter was retrograde in
the Ascendant .In 2015, Chennaiyin FC had won the
cup. Whenever a retrograde planet is in the
Ascendant, they must be the winner, winning the Cup
at least once. Ascendant (Libra) lord and play master,
Venus exalted in the 6th, is conjunct with Mercury,
the 9th lord. The 11th lord Moon (success) also in 6th,
its friendly house. If the 6th house is all right, then
win over warfare is waiting. So prediction is
Chennaiyin FC will win the ISL 2017-18. Conclusion:
Chennaiyin FC wins 3-2.
Will BJP win in Tripura Assembly
Rising sign is Aquarius-Fixed, Sheersodaya sign. In
the Ascendant, 7th sign Leo's lord, the Sun is posited,
making the change to the Fixed sign's nature. As it is
Sheersodaya sign, victory of BJP is possible. Moreover,
Mars is aspecting by its 4th aspect, sitting in its own
sign, whereas Saturn is aspecting by its 3rd aspect.
So, the prediction was that BJP will win in Tripura
Assembly election. BJP did win the Elections with
"Whether baby will be delivered in normal manner?"
The lady was pregnant
. She wants her baby's birth
to be natural and not Caesarean. The rising sign is
Gemini, 17047". That means it crosses 150. Saturn's
degree is 13041". So no natural malefic is aspecting.
Mars' degree is 0.24" - far away from
Saturn.Consequently, predictions of the birth of the
baby is to be normal. Conclusion is that, the birth of
the child will be in natural manner. They did not go
for Caesarean surgery.
Will the lost boy return?
A lady' son was lost. She informed me at 2 PM.
The son, was lost from her village Sundarbon, West
Rising sign is Scorpio--fixed sign Sheersodaya.
Rahu is aspecting the Scorpio. Ascendant lord Mars
is retrograde. Seeing the Sheersodaya sign and the
Moon in the 10th, it was predicted that the boy would
come back. Moreover, the Ascendant lord Mars is
retrograde. Retrograde lagna lord indicates Safe
Return. The boy did return.
Is there chance for Congress to form
the Government in Karnataka Assembly
The 15th Karnataka Assembly election was held on
12th May 2018 in 222 constituencies.BJP wins 104
seats, Congress got 78 and JD(S) got 38 seats.
Congress and JD(S) make the post-election alliance.
The Governor took the decision on inviting the BJP, as a single largest party and gave 15 days' time to
show the majority, on 17th May 2018. The Congress
approached the Supreme Court. Supreme Court
allotted only 48 hours i.e. 19th May 2018. The rising
sign is Virgo 22057", dual sign, Sheersodaya. i.e. it
will act as Movable sign. Retrograde Saturn is
aspecting Virgo from 4th house. Saturn(R) is also
aspecting, Gemini, the 10th house, where Venus is
posited. It means Coalition in the Government.
Sheersodaya, dual sign, acts as a movable (because
the 150 rule).Whenever a retrograde planet aspects
the Ascendant, whose term has been finished, will
get the power again. The prediction is that the
Congress-JD(S) alliance will form the Government.
The occurrence was that, Congress-JD(S) alliance
formed the Government.
Will Awami League win in the coming
Bangladesh General election in Dec'18?

much ahead of the Election- Editor).
The rising sign is Libra, Sheersodaya, Movable sign.
In the rising sign, there is natural benefic planet Venus
(57') is there. Libra is its Mooltrikona sign of Venus.
Jupiter 23020' is also there. Then Ascendant is 5017'.
In the 10th, there is Rahu (law enforcement), aspected
by Mars (Police). That means Awami League will
win the election, with the help of Police force.
