Ruling Planets

The Ruling Planets (RPs) are the following:

1) Lagna Star Lord
2) Lagna Sign Lord
3) Moon Star Lord
4) Moon Sign Lord
5) Day Lord
Also include Lagna Sub Lord and Moon Sub Lord.
Of these, Lagna Sub lord is the most powerful and Day Lord the weakest.
(Clarification needed: Is Day Lord determination from Sun Rise to the next Sun Rise or
Calendar day? KSK in [7] recommends Sun Rise.)
We should also include those planets that are conjoined with the above RPs within an orb
of 5 degrees [1]. Whenever a planet is in rapt conjunction with RPs that planet will find a
place at the time of fructification of the event.
If any planet is aspected by the RPs then that planet is to be included in the RPs [2]. Also
include the Nodes tenanting the signs of the RPs [3] (Query: Should the node replace the
sign lord, or is it additionally included? [8] says the node should replace the sign lord as
RP). If a planet aspects the RPs, then that planet is an RP [3].
When applied to the Natal chart, RPs will agree fully with the Dasa, Bhukti and Anthara
periods in operation [3].
If an RP is in the constellation or sub of a retrograde planet, discard it. If the RP is
retrograde, but in the star and sub of planets in direct motion, then the RP can be taken.
However, the RP will not give its results until it becomes direct [7, P202].
However strong a RP is, it cannot fructify the desired result if it is conjoined with or
aspected by Saturn. So is the case of Punarphoo Dosha caused when Moon is in a sign,
star and sub of Saturn. Then Moon in the capacity of a RP cannot be useful [5].
An RP posited in the star or sub of another RP is powerful [6]. An RP in its own sub is
very powerful [10].
If the RP is found in retrograde motion, it should be eliminated [8] (This contradicts [7,
Although Suns position is not included as an RP, [8] observes that if the sign lord and
star lord of Sun are common among the already selected RPs, then Suns star lord and
sign lord become strongest to offer results according to their disposition.

If an RP is in the sub of another (??) who is detrimental to the house to be judged for a
particular matter by being the significator of houses 8 and 12 to the house to be judged,
then this is not a fruitful RP [9].
Rules Regarding Nodes and RPs:
If a node is conjoined with an RP, then the node is an agent for that RP
If a node is aspected by an RP, then the node is an agent for that RP
If a node is in the sign owned by an RP, then the node is an agent for that RP
If a node is in the star of an RP, then the node is an agent for that RP
But if the node is deposited in the sub of a retrograde planet, then the node carries no
strength [10].
When a node directly appears as an RP, then include the following planets as RPs [11]:
Planets conjoined with the node
Planets aspected by the node
Lord of the sign where the node is located
If an RP appears multiple times in the RPs list, then it gets more power.
For aspect calculation, it is recommended to use Hindu aspects [11].
If the occupant or the owner of 11th house or Lagna Sub Lord RP is a fast moving planet
the event will take place early and if it is a slow moving planet, the event will take a long
time to fructify [12]. Fast moving planets: Moon, Venus, Mercury, Sun. and Mars. Slow
moving planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu.
