Salient points of horoscope Assessment
Great Indian astrologer Dr. B.V. Raman says in his celebrated work, Predictive Hindu Astrology: "Astrology relies more on the skill and intuitive capacities of the interpreter than upon the complicated rules."
Dr. Raman also says that when one has acquired a thorough knowledge of the ever lasting and ever-changing influence of the stars, one will be able to prognosticate correctly the mental and physical qualities of any person and his future and his progress in the world.
The first thing that a student of astrology should ascertain soon after unfolding a horoscope is whether the subject is to be a success or a failure in life, says Sri Lankan astrologer Hendrik de Silva Hettigoda.
Dhanayoga, Rajayoga and Gnanayoga
Next you have to determine whether the subject is a beneficiary of a Dhanayoga, a Rajayoga or a Gnanayoga and whether he is subject to Balarishtas and other Aristayogas or planetary combinations causing misfortunes like early death, disease and poverty. Dasas and Antar Dasas should be examined to ascertain the timing of fortunes and misfortunes indicated by planetary positions in the natal chart.
There are certain planetary factors that signify whether a newborn would make a success of his/her life. Some of them are:
The presence of natural benefics in the Lagna at the time birth
Benefic planets aspecting the Lagna
The presence of benefics on either side of the Lagna
The 9th House and the 10th House deriving strength from the occupancy of planets exalted or Swakshetra, aspect of benefics, Yogakaraka or Samyoga
The lords of the 9th and the 10th Houses gaining exalted or Swakshetra status in Kendras and Moolatrikonas
The Sun and the Moon being strong
Natural malefics Mars, Saturn and Rahu becoming Yogakaraka
No auspicious Yoga would come to fruition if the Lagna lord, the Moon sign lord and the 9th lord are afflicted.
The life of a subject would become a success if the 10th House which is called the Karmasthana is strong with its lord strongly posited and the House is either aspected or occupied by a benefic planet.
It is important that you look up the positions where the lords of the 4th and the 2nd Houses are posited. The 2nd lord occupying the 6th, 8th or the 12th House would mean that the native would not inherit any lands and property or wealth from parents or maternal or paternal relatives. He would not have a permanent residence either.
If the lord of the 10th House is posited in the 6th, 8th, or the 12th House, the native would not have a successful career.
All the 12 Houses should be examined in a similar manner to determine whether the life of the native would be a success or a failure.
There are numerous other factors that should be considered before venturing into make a prediction.
Basic points constituting a guide to making predictions
Students are also advised to remember the following noteworthy points too when judging a horoscope.
The lords of trines are always auspicious.
The lords of the quadrants are also auspicious.
Malefics becoming the lords of the quadrants produce favourable results.
The lords of the 2nd and the 12th Houses produce good if they are associated with benefic planets.
Mars produce good results when it is the lord of the 5th and the 10th Houses.
Rahu and Ketu produce favourable results when they are posited in the signs owned by benefics.
The lords of the 3rd, 6th, 8th and the 11th Houses cause miseries.
Jupiter and Venus owning Kendras are evil. They become powerful when they occupy the 2nd and the 7th Houses. When the lords of the 9th and the 10th Houses exchange places they produce extra-ordinary good results.
