Forward
Shri Chandrakan t R. Bhatt B.A.LL.B. is a zealous resea rch student
o f Astro logy. He has writt en severa l books on Astrology. Origill:1l1y
he was an advocate of Sayana system of Astrology popularly
known as Weste rn system , Some seven yea rs back during his
frequ ent visits to me, we had a good deal o f d iscussion about the
heauties and accuracy of Nirayana system of Astrology or Indian
Astrol ogy. He gradually turned his a ttention to the study of
Nirayaml system of Astrology and to- day he has become an ardent
advocate o f Hind u Astrology.
'Nakshatra Chimamani' is his further contribution in the field
of Astro logy. Nakshatras (Conste llations) play important role in tho;:
lie ld of, not onl y pred icti ve si de of Astrology bu t also in all the
rd igious ce remonies of the Hi ndus.
The Vimshotlllry Dasha system in tim ing events advocated by
the great Parash ar is based on constellat ion and its sub di visions.
For pe rfectly j udging the st rength or weak ness of a house and it s
lo rd the Astrologer has to ta ke into consideration the sign and the
constellation and it s sub di vision, for then only he can evaluate the
physical (Sthula) , the astral (Sukshma ) and Casual (Karan) strength
and weak ness of the s ign and its lord. Thus the 12 signs of the
Zodiac arc divided into 249 divisions of the 27 constellations. The
(:ffec! of any planet can be judge d well if we know the place ment
in tf ~ horoscope, o f the lord of the house, the lord o f the
conste~' ati o n and the lord of the sub division of the constellation
it is placed in. Thus a planet is controlled by the lord of the sign,
the lord of the constellation and the lord of the sub division of
the constellation. For the last thousa nd years or mo re the Northern
part of India was constantl y invaded by the invaders from Central
Asia. Greal centres of learning in the North were plundered and
valuable literatures were reduced t o ashes. F ortunately the remote
Southern part of India was saved from the plunders of these
invade rs and the families of the great scholars of th e South
preserved the rich heritage of knowledge including knowledge of
Astrol ogy propounded by great Rishes of India.

Sh ri Gopa l Krishna Rao of Madras has written three parts of

Asr ro los-y. He has termed thi s conslellation al
Astro logy as

pe rfect Paddhati (system). This cla im of the late J yo tish Mart and
Silri K. S. Kri shnamurti has created a good deal o f controversy

every studen t of Astrology has his own li kes and dis likes, he
therefo re foll ows the predicti ve system of his choice. Each syst em
of prediction has il ~ own pecul ia rity and merits too. So far as [
am com:crncd, [ li ked the sub dL'position theory of prediction in
the Nakshatra di spos ilor system of As trology. Acco rdingly I ha ve
selec ted some typica l birth horoscopes and example horary maps

these horoscopes on the pract ica l applicati on of this s ub disposit ion

3 (a) Th e origi nal Hindu method is what is known as the
equa l house di vision. Th e sign ascending is the first hOllse and an y
planct therein i.. sa id t o be in the fi rst house . The sign next to
the a seen din~ s ign will constilute t he second ho use and any pla ne t
therein wil1 be said to be in the 2nd house and so on. This is the
princ iple foll owed by the old Hindu Astrologers. Thus the sign and th e
house werc deemed synonym ous.
(b) (n \Vestern Astro logy Ih ~ c us p of a hou!'c is the
comme nc ing point a nd the first house is consti t uted h y space

v
(e) In this book first o f all you have to ereCl a ho roscope
according to the Weste rn (Sayana) sys tem wit h the aid of Raph ad's
Tables of Ho uses and Ephemeri s. Then YOLt have to deduc t
ayanamsa fo r the required year fr om Sayana positio ns of the ("IISI'S
and planets: a nd you wi ll gc l Ni ra yana positions of lhe c usps and
planet s. You should write the cu sps and ~' Ianet s in the manner of
a Weste rn Horoscope. For the purposes of this book the c usp of a
house is to be considered a ~ the com mencing point.
FurtlIer it may h e remcmb<:red lhat the question of ayan amsa
is a controversial suhject. bu t for the subject malle r of this book
ayanamsa ado pted for each A. D. year is given on page 168.
(d) In the Western syste m it is usua l to write down signs Ulld
d egrees on the cusps of th e houses in a circ ular blank map a nd
to pl ace th e planets in th e map in their co rrect positions. For the
pLLr pose~ of thi s boo k and for the sa ke of convenience L have made
a dev ice to writ e till: horoscope in the form of a ladder b y draw ing
one verticle line in the middle and five hor izont:!] lines intersecting
Ihe verticle line. The ends of Ihe ve rticle line and the ends of th.::
horizontal lines will serve liS the c usps of houses and the !'igns
have been wrineR th ereon ~ l1d th e plane ts hav: been wrilen either
helo w or a bove the c uspal s ign as the case may be.
4. The Zodiac o f 360 ' is di vided into 27 Nakshatras o r
Constellations or Stnrs for the purpose of Astrology. Each Nakshatra
contai ns 13" 20'. It begins from 0 0 Ari es. It is s ubd ivided into 9
parts totalling 243 lind eae h sub divisio n is know n as S ub
Nakshatra or Sub Constell a tion or Sub Star or Su b. So each deg ree
a nd minute of tile Zod iac is jointl y ruled by three plane ts
out (If which one beco mes the sign lord, the o ther is the star
lord Hnd th e third is the sub lord .
The sum and s ubstance of the sub dis position theory of
prediction is that t he c uspal sub lo rd of a IlOu se indicates whether
tile matter sign ified by the Ilou se is promised or den ied. If th e
cuspal sub lord promises. then onl y during Ih ~ j oint pe riod o f th ~
significators of that matte r the res uh ~ of that matte r are expe rienced:
otherwise no t.
The s ignificato r pla ne t alwa ys gives the res ults of the house
occupied and owned by its star lord during the signiFtcator plan et' s
per iod. suh period and inter pe riod. If the sub lord of the significator

arc illustratively explained in the book.
,

Whatever IS essential to know prior (0 the pnlctical


application or the principles h<l" been explained by way of
illustrations. Each topic has been methodically pres-cnted m nUl
~he!l, according to, my view pJinl and observation in several cases .
Jt is in the manner I wish the reader to understand the subject
matter. So it needs little mention that the presentation, cx!)reSSiOll
and interpretation may vary with personal eqllalion. Conclusions
drawll life logical and natural. They arc neitbo;:r nbrupt nor twisted .
There is no sham show of predicting an evellt correct to the datI!.

6. Tn my humble opinion, the ~cicllCe of A!ltrology is best.


h:arnt by exoperience and observation. The marc you ob~ervc the
marc is the scope for modification. The main object of thig book
is to make this system of prediction easily accessible to every
student of Astrology who only ponesses workable knowledge of
the English language. So the language used is simple and lucid.
This book is only illustrative and not exhaustive. Lovers of
Astrology in different regions of the COUlltry may publish this book in
their own regional language for the b::ne!lt of the student world of
Astrology if they so desire: and thi!Y would he rendering services in the
cause of the wide sprcad of this Nakshatra system of Astrology.
7. My friend ShTi S. M. Patel made me switch over to this
Naksllatra sy;;tem of Astrology. He constantly inspired me to write
this book in English. He moved the board of Trustees of Shri
Vivek Educat ion Trust to bring out this publication and to give me
patronage. I therefore 0\\1,: a J::ep debt of gratilud:: to thc::n all.
I hope all my readers will enjoy this

l~x t

book.

Inscrtlne .be Signs and the PJllnel'i


I. The beginning point or each house is called the Cusp . The
signs and degrees sh ould be written down on the emps or the houses
in the blank map. In the example birth horoscopc no. I Cnpricorn
12" 25' is placed on the cusp or the 1st housc i.e. Asc. Aquarius 19 ~
44' on the cusp or the 21ld house and so o n . In thi s Wly the s igns
and degree s on all the 12 cust'S or the houses hJ.Ve heen wri tten d n '.\':l.

2. (a) The cusp of the 3rd house begin~ with Pisces 250 44',
nut th e longitudcs or Moon and Rahu in Pisces are 2J ~ 49 ' and
24" 36' respectively. They are less than the cuspal degree o f the 3rd
house. So the y are pJ~ced beh ind the cuspa! degrce of the 3rd
house a nd they ma y be considered as posited in the 2nd house. If a
planet is within 5" of the cuspal degree of a housc, it exerts its
influence on both th e houses. In this c<l se M oon ane'! Rahu are with in
5" of the cuspal degree o f the 3rd h ouse. So they can be SOlid to be
on the cusp of the 3rd hotlse and they will exert so me influence
both on the 2nd and the 3rd house.

3
Similarly Saturn in Taurus 7 30' is placed behind Taurus 21 28'
th e cusp o f the 5th house and it is said to be in the 4th -house .
Ma rs in Leo 140' is placed behind Leo 1944' the cusp of the
8th house and it is said to be in the 7th house.
Kctu in Virgo 2436' is placed behind Virgo 2544' the cusp of
of the 9th house and it is on the cusp of the 91h house. So Ketu will
exert some 'influence on the 8th ho use and some on the 91h ho use.
Jupiter in' Scorpio 14"2' R is placed behind Scorpio 21 28' the
cu sp of the I Ith house and it. is said to be in the 10th hou ie.
(b) The cusp of the 6th ho use begins Wilh Gemini 1544',
But the longitudes of Sun and Venus in Gemini are 2r 3J' and 2300'
respecti vely. They are grea ter t h ~ n the cuspal degree of the 61h
house . So they are placed in fro nt o f Gemini 1 5-~ 44 ' and they are
sa id to be in th e 6th house.
Similarly Mercury in Cancer I r2' is placed in front of Cancer
12"25' the cusp of the 7th hou se and it is said to be in the 7th house,
3. All th e houses in the horoscope a re not of equal dimensions.
The house may be less or greater t han 30 degrees. Sometime s one
house may contain more than olle sign. Such a sign is termed as
'Intc:rcepled.
In til e example birih horoscope no. I the 5th house commences
from Taurus 2 1 28' and ex tends uplO G emini 15 44'. So the 5th
house is of 24 16' dimensio n.
.

T he 71h house begins with Cancer 12 25' and e nd ~ at Leo 19


44'. So the 7th house consists of 37 19' and so on with ot her houses.

2. Sub in Nakshtra Sy.tem
The Zodiac of 360a is divided int o three eq ual parts. Each part
con tain s 120", It consists of nine equal Sectio ns. Each !'ection contains
]) 0 20' o r 800', I t begins fr om 0" Aries. Each section is kn("wn as
Naksha tra or Constella tio n or Slar. There are 27 Naksha tras or
Constell a tions or Sta rs in the whole Zodiac.
According to Vimshollari D as ha System each Nak shatra or
Constellatio n o r Star is ruled in turn hy the nine pla nets in the
order of Ke1U, Venus. SUll, Moon. M a rs. Rahu. Jupiter, Saturn and
Me rcury. This order is fixed and not cl1:Ingeable.
E:tch planet rules three Nakshatras or Constellations o r Stars
and the ruling planet is callrd the Nuks hatra lord or Constellation
l ord or St ar lord . In s hari we may usc the term ' Star' instead of
'St:lr lord' e tc th rough o ut this book.
In Nakshatra sys tem each N<lk shatra or Conslcll;Jl ion o r Star
i ~ subdi vided lnl l)
nin e parts. This Subdivision i ~ called ' Sub',
I! is based on the ro llowing formul a :
" Dasha )'f.'OI' oj each planet..;. The (ufal number of Vimsho ttari
Dasha ycars " S tar orea = The longituae or extent or area of the
Suh for each plt/l1et ill a,,), 5wr or emU/el/alioll or Noksilolro"
The planet ruling the lo ngitude o r ex te nt or area of the 'sub'
in any "Jaksh:Hra o r Constellation or Slar is called th e Sub Nakshatra
Lord o r Sub Conste llatio n Lord or Sub Star Lord or Sub Lo rd. In
short we may usc th e t erm 'Sub' inst ead of Sub Lord through
out this book.

149 Subs and 'hdr Serial

I/O .S

27 stars have been sub divided into 243 subs. Rerer to the rabi es
A , B. C and D : in six cases the same sta r and the same sub will b .::

T ake these si.'( subdivisio ns in to (lCcou nt and you will get ::!49
s ubdi visions in a ll. T hus th e Zod iac is divided into 249 parts . Eac h

1n Aries the seria l no. starts rrom 1 and ends a t 22; in Tau rus
from 23 to 41 ; in Gemini rro m 42 to 62: in Canc er from 63 to 83
and 111 Leo from 84 to 105 and so on. Each seri a l no. mentions the sign.
the sign lord . the star lord , the sub lord and the commenciAg pOii tion
of eac h sub. The sig n lord re mains constan t fo r the who le "ign.
These no .s arc very useful ill erecting hora ry maps. This wi ll oe
discussed later on.

From these tables you can say that each degree and minute of
the Zodiac is ruled by the sign lord. the star lord and the sub lord .
IL\ othe r word~ . it can be sa id that each degree and minute is jointly
ruled. governed or o perated by three planeu. out of which one becomes
the sign lord , the other is the star lord and the third is the sub lord .
For instance in the Table A Ih.e s! rial no. 6 shows that Aries
5 ~ 33' 20" is joi ntly ruled or governed or operated by Mars (as the
sign lord); by Ketu (as the star lord) and by Ranu (a~ the sub lord) ,
The serial no. 98 indicates that Leo 20" 6' 40" is jointly
operated by Sun {as the sign lo rdi, by Vellu,> (a.s the star lord) and.
by Jupiter (as the sub lo rd I.
,
The seri,d no. 187 deMt es t hat S3gitr:triu~ 28 0 26' 40" is jointly
go\cmed by Jupiter (as Ihe sign lord), by Sun (as the star lord)
by Mars (as the sub lord).

SignitL:.~ators

in thdr order

In th~ horoscope the sign is on the cusp of each house. i\ planet


always occ upies the Sig ll and it~ strength is determined lu:cording
as it occupiL:s its OWI1 sign. exalted sign or debi li ta ted sign.
So the occllpanl in a sign is stronger than the owner of the sign.
The sign i:o, the 1/12111 pari or the Zodiac, while the Constellation
or Star is the 1/27lh pan of the Zodiac. So the Constellation or
Star is stronger than the s ig)].
Hence the planet in the: star is sll"O llger than ils Star lord (which
may be either the ocCupall( Of ilh~ owner of the sign) ,
The occupant (planet) in ;! sign mostly gives the results of till:
hOllse occupied hy it . So the planet in the star b(,ttcr gives the
results of the hOllse oculpied hy its star lord.
Keeping these principles ill mind the order or strength of the
signilieators of each house should bc determined as under:

Pl:mct in the oC~lIpant's star


A p!a l'e\ in the star or [he llCCllP:~I1. t of a house is stronger than
the occ upant. So it should be giv.::n tirsl preference as a significHtol"
of that house. because it is strongest to give the results of the house
occLlpicd by its Star lord. Tile occlIplmt remaills as a weak
signilicHtor of that hOllse.
In the example birth horoscope no. I. S:,\UrIl is thc occupant or
the 4th house. Mercury and Jl1piter arc in the star of Saturn the
occupant. So they aTe stronger than their star lo rd Saturn. because
they are the strongest to give the results of the 4th house. Hence
Mercury and JlIpiter an:: thc strong signifieators of the 4th and
Saturn is a weak significator.
Occupant
If there is no planet ill the occupant's Star. the occupant becomcs
the strong signifk:ltor of th at hOllse ilnd it is strong to give tllc
results of that hOllse. So the second preferencc shou ld be given tothe occupant of that housc.
In the ex<\mpk birth horoscope no. I, Moon and Rahu arc till:
occupants of the 2nd house. Thcrl: is no planct in their stars. So
they arc the strong signifi,:ators oC the 2nd house and they ar..:;
strong to give the results of IIll: 2nd house.

Planet in the owner's star


If the hOllse is VaCallt, thc planet in the star of the

oi
a house is strongcr tha n the owner. So it becomes a strong signifieator
of that house and it is strong to give the results of that housc.
Hence the third preference should be given to thc planct in the
owner' s star and the owner remains a weak signifieator of that hOlls.:.'.
01),'11Cr

17
Tn the example birth horosco pe no. I, the ltd and the 12th
houses are vacant. Jupiter is the owner of these houses. Sun and
Venus 8tc.in the star of Jupiter the owner. So they are stro nger than
their Star lord Jupiter to give the tesults of the led and the 12th.
Hence Sun and Venus are the strong significators of the houses 3
and 12, while Jupiter is a weak significator.
Owaer
If the house is vacant and if there is no planet in the owner's
star, the owner itself becomes the strong significator of that house
a nd it is strong to give the results of that house. So the 4th
preference should be given to the owner of that house.

In the example birth horoscope no. I, the 5th house is vacant.


Venus is the owner of the 5th.. There is no planet in the star of
Venus the owner. So Venus becomes the strong significat or of the
5th house and it is strong to give the results of the 5th ho use.
Planet Ja Conj. or Aspect
(a) A planet in conj. or association with, or aspected by a
significator gives the results of the house or houses denoted by that
significator . So the last preference should be given to the pl anet in
conj . or aspect with that significator.

In the example birth horoscope no . I, Sun is in conj. with


Venus the significator of the 5th ho use (as discussed above). So Sun
\Io'il\ give the results of the Sth house as denoted by Venus
the significator.
Moo n and Rahu are aspected by Jupiter the significato r of the
4th house (as already discussed). So botb Moon and Rahu will give
the results of the 4th house as denoted by the significator Jupiter.
(b) A planet aspecting the house may be considered as the
significator o f that house.
In the examp.le birth horoscope no. I, Saturn aspects the 7th,
II th and 2nd cusps. So it becomes the significator of these houses.
Similarly Jupiter aspects the lrd, Sth and 7th cusps. So it becomes
the significator of these houses and so on with other planets.
Hence it may be said that planets e.g. Mercury and Jupiter in
the ' Star of Saturn will indicate the matters of 2, 7 and 11 and so
o n with other planets.

Explanation.' The planets in (Italics) are the strong signiflcators
of the house shown against them in the column (a), while the other
planets remain as weak significators of that h Ollse; e.g. (S, V) are the
strong significatof5 o f the houses 3, 10 and 12. So they a rc strong

to give {he result s of these houses and so on.

6. Rahu & Ketu and

lh~ir

significance

1. Rahu-Ketu as agent
Rahu or Ketu is not allotted the ownership of any sign. It o nly

occupies the sign in a house. So Rahu or Ketu works as an agent


or representative of :
(a) the planet with whom it is in conj. or aspect.
(b) the owner of tbe sign in whicb it is placed.
Example birth horoscope no. 1 .' (a) Rahu occupies the hOllse 2,
it is in conj. with Moon which owns 7 and occupies 2. So it will
work as an agent cf Moon and it will signify the matters of the
houses 2 and ,7.
. .
Rahu is aspected by Mars which owns 4, 11 and occupies 7.
So if will indicate the matters of the houses 4, 7 and II as all
agent of Mars.

19
Rahu occupies Pi, ces the sign owned by Jupiter and it is also
3spected by Jupiter which owns 3, 12 and occupies 10. So as an
agcnl of Jupiter it will denote the matters of 3, 10 and 12 .

(b) Ketti occ upies the house 8, it is aspeeted by Moon which


owns 7 and occupies 2. So it will signify the matters of 2 and :7 as
an a!cnt of Moon and also of 8.
~

Ketu occupies Virgo the sigll oWlled by Mercury which owns


6, 9 and occ upies 7. So it will sign ify the mailers of 6, 7 and 9 as
an agent of Mercury.
2. Rahu-Kctu as )'Iane(

Kee ping in view the above rule and the rule that a plallet gives
th e re sult s indicated by its Star lord , \',Ie may say th ilt Rahu or
Kctu gives firstl y, the re s ults of the planet in c o nj. with it; second ly.
t he re sults o f t he planet as pcc t ing it : thirdl y, the res ults or it s own
star lo rd an d fo urth ly, the re sults of the owner o f the sign

occ up ied by il.


Example birtl/ horoscope 110 . I : (a) As Rahu is ill conj. with
Moo n, it \vi ll firstl y d e no te the res ults o f Moon i.e. the mallers
signified hy the hOLlses 2 a nd 7.

Suppose Rahu is not in conj. or aspect with any planet, then


Rahll will indicate the res lilts of its Star lord Mercury i.e. the
malle rs signified by the houses 6, 7 and 9.
(h) Kelu is not in conj. with any planet, bul it is aspected by
Moon. So it will give the resu lt s of Moon.
3. Rallu-Ketu as Star lord

If any planet is in the Star of Rahu or Ketu, thai planet will


sigllify the matters of the house occupied by Rahu or Ketu; that
planet will indica Ie the matters of the house owned and occupied
by the Star lord of Rahu or Ketu ; that planet will denote the
matters of the house occupied and owned by the owner of the sign
occupied by Rabu or Ketu.

Example birth horoscope 110. 1 .' (al The planet Mars is in the
star of Ketu which occupies 8. So Mars will give the results of
the house 8.
(b) The Star lord of Ketu is Mars which occupies 7, owns )~
and 11. So the planet Mars will give the results of the houses
4, 7 and 11.
:y.3
(c) Ketu occupies Virgo the sign owned by Mercury wh' h
occupies 7, owns 6 and 9. So the planet Mars will give the re!l1~
'/0 10
ofr: tlr& lhouses 6, 7 and 9.

20
4. Rahu-Keta as SigaifiClltor
Rahu or Keto is stronger than any planet. So, if Rahu or Ketu
represents any significator planet, Rahu-Ketu should be given first
preference as a significator in place of that significator planet.
Example birth horoscope no. J: Rahu represents Moon, Mars
and Jupiter. So when we have to consider Moon, Mars or Jupiter
as a significator of the matter under consideration, Rahu should be
given first preference as a significator in place of Moon, Mars or Jupiter.
Similarly, Ketu represents Moon and Mercury. So Ketu should
be preferred as a significator in place of the
significator
Moon or Mercury.
5. Rahu and Ketu are not to be treated as retrograded planets,
bec~use their natural movement is in the opposite direction.

7. General Strength of a Planet


Strength by house
I. A planet mostly gives the results of the house occupied by
it and its owner comes next in order.

2, Of the houses the angles stand first in strength, next the


succeedents and then the cadents.
3. The owner of the house 6, 8 or 12 (as counted from any
particular house to be judged) becomes weak, evil or malefic in effects.
Strength by sign
.
I. A planet is strong when it is in its own or exalted sign.
It is weak or afflicted in its detriment or fall (debilitated) sign.
2. The nature of the sign (e.g. cardinal or movable, fixed, or
common or mutable; fiery, earthy, airy or watery; fruitful or barren;
human or bestial; mute or voice; masculine or feminine etc) on the
cusp and that occupied by a planet influences the affairs of the
house and the planet.
StrenJth by aspeel
I. . A planet in conj. or aSSOCiation with, or aspected by a
alefic (i.e. the owner of 6, 8 or 12) becomes weak or afflicted.
2. An aspecting planet modifies the results of the hous~ matters
according as it is a natural benefic or malefic, friendly or inimical.
Example birth horoscope no. 1.
I. In the horoscope where the results of a house are to be
offer~d by an occupant or owner itself, the strength of the occupant
or owner may be examined, and where the results of a house are

21
to be offered by the planet in the occupant's or owner's star, the
strength of the star lord may be examined.
2. Sun and Venus are in the star Jupiter which is in the 10th
angle. So Sun and Venus become strong by house and they are
powerful to give the result s or' their star lord Jupiter.
The results of the 2nd house are to be offered by the
occupant Moon (because there is no planet in Moon's star). Moon
is in conj. with the natural malefic Rabu and it is aspected by the
owner of 12 (Jupiter). So Moon becomes weak in offering good
results of the 2nd hOllse to the extent desi red .

8. A planet or house 'Connected With'


1. A planet tonnected with another planet

(a) Suppose Jupiter occupies Capricorn o r Aquarius; or


(b) it is in the star or sub of Saturn; or
(c) it is in conj. with or aspected by Saturn, then it may be
said that Jupiter is connected with Saturn .
2. A planet connected with any house
(a) Suppose Jupiter is the owner or Star lord or Sub lord of
the ascending degree (the cusp of the 15t house or Asc); or
(b) it occupies the I st house; or
(c) it aspects the 1st house; or
(d) it is in the star or sub of th e occupant o f the 1st house: o r
(e) it is in the star or sub of the owner of the 1st house: or
(0 it is in conj. with o r aspected by the owner of the l SI
house, then it may be saia that Jupiter is connec ted with the 1st house.

3. A house or its owner connecled with Ihe house 6, 8 or 12.


(a) Suppose t!>e owner of 6, 8 or 12 occupies or aspects the
4th house, then ii may be said that the 4th house ;s connected with
the house 6, 8 or 12.
(b) I. Suppose the ow ner of the 4th house occupies the hp use
6. 8 or 12; or
2. it is in the star of the owner of the ho use 6, 8 or 12; or
3. it is in cQnj . with or aspeeted by the owner of the house
6, 8 or 12, then it may be said that the owner oi the 4th is connecteJ
with the house 6, 8 or 12. .
Thus the term 'Connected with ill any manner' is very widt in
its meaning.

22
4~Example

birth horoscope no. 1.


' .
Generally speaking the occupant or owner of the house, theplanet in the star of the occupant or owner of the house anq the
planet in conj. or in aspect with the significator of that house come
under the category of the ~ignificators of that house and these
significators are termed as connected whh that house .
. In this birth map Jupit,er is the occupant of 10 and the owner
of 3 and 12; the planet Sun is in the star of Jupiter the occupant
of 10 and the owner of 3 and 12; and the planet Venus is in conj.
with the significator of 10, 3 and 12 (Sun). Thus Jupiter, the planet
Sun and the planet Venus come under the category of the significators
of 10, 3 and 12. So they are termd as 'connected with' the houses.
10, 3 and 12. The term 'connected with' has been used in this
sense throughout the book. _
Broadly speaking Jupiter, the planet Sun and the planet Venus
are the significators of 10, 3 and 12, but strictly speaking the planet
Sun (which has to give the results of its star lord Jupiter) is the
significator of 10, 3 and 12. However, the term 'significator' has been
used in both the sense according as the case may be throughout
th~
book.
'
,--:,
, Lastly, Sun is in the star Jupiter owning 3, 12 and occupying 10;
it is in the sub Saturn owning 1, 2 and occupying 4. Now to facilitate
distinction between the matters of the star lord and that of the
sU;b ~ord, it may be said that Sun is the significato!" of 10. 3 and 12;
and connected with 1, 2 and 4. This procedure may be adopted
for all planets.
