You must know that there are certain rules and regulations for predicting things / events in astrology. These rules and techniques should be imprinted in your mind at any point of time so that you would be able to predict correctly. To gain control of these things, you must be familiar with all these predictive principles mentioned earlier, special characteristics of planets and also Yogas.
The basic predictive rule:
You must know that a planet during its period produces the results of 3 types.
1. The natural result
2. The result of yoga
3. The functional result
The natural result is related to a planet’s characteristics. It indicates things in a general way. For example, Sun is exalted in a person’s horoscope. You should remember the natural special characteristics of Sun.
As Sun stands for royal nature, name and fame and status, you can simply say that the person would get very good name and fame in his / her life. It is a general indication.
You can also say that medical education would be suitable for this native. The reason is that Sun represents medicals, doctors, hospitals, pharmaceuticals, medical administration and things and activities related to these departments. Based on this, an astrologer can say that a line related to medical education or other medical line would be suitable to the person. The reason is Sun is very strong as the planet is exalted.
Again, Sun represents father in a horoscope. If Sun is exalted, it indicates that the native’s father has good longevity.
Similarly, if Sun is in debilitation, you can simply say that the person would not be famous in his / her life. Medical education would not suit the person. If such a person takes up medical education, he / she would not be successful. It also indicates the weak position of his / her father.
You have to apply this principle to all the planets in relation to their characteristics. This would enable you to provide general indications about things or interests of the native.
Similarly, think of Mars. In case Mars is in Lagna, you can say that the person is aggressive, angry and of short temperament nature in general. If Mars is exalted, you can say that the person would have leadership qualities. He / she would be highly courageous too as Mars represents courage, confidence and ambitious.
Think of Jupiter. It is a divine planet. If Jupiter is situated in Lagna or if Jupiter aspects Lagna or Lagna lord or both, you have to think that the person is a blessed one. The reason is that Jupiter represents God directly and the presence or aspect of Jupiter in or on Lagna indicates that the person is a blessed one. Even Jupiter’s association with the Lagna lord anywhere in the horoscope indicates that God would come to his / her rescue in times of difficulty.
In case Jupiter is in 7th house in a person’s horoscope, you can say that he / she would get a life partner of good thoughts, culture and religious nature. Again if Jupiter is exalted, that life partner would be highly spiritual and devoted to God. If such a Jupiter is in 9th house, you can safely assess that the native’s father would have those good qualities.
Suppose Jupiter is in 6th house, you can conclude that the person would have good health. If Jupiter is in 8th house, one would have good longevity. If Jupiter is in 12th house, one would spend money on charity and other good causes. The reason is 12th house is a house of wastage and expenditure and Jupiter is a natural benefic planet.
Think of Sun, Mars or Ketu, all energy planets. If Mars is in Lagna, one would be very angry, ambitious and dynamic as I have already indicated. The reason is that Mars is an energy planet. Like it, Sun and Ketu are also energy planets. If these three planets are in Lagna and strong, one would be more energetic and highly active. Such a person would maintain good health as he / she would have very good resistance power in the body drawn from these three energy planets.
If Saturn and Rahu or either of them is present in Lagna, the native would lack in energy and resistance power. Due to this, one may naturally suffer from allergy, frequent cold and other sicknesses emanating from lack of energy in the body. The reason is Saturn and Rahu are cold planets and indicate lack of energy.
If the three energy planets are in fifth house, one would certainly not be blessed with children. In case a lady horoscope has these three planets in her fifth house, she may conceive but goes through abortions. These three planets represent fire power and high energy and kill the new born baby. A new born baby can not withstand such high energy.
If these three planets are in the fifth house of a male chart, reproductive cells, medically called spermatozoa, in the person’s sperm get killed due to high energy and fire power. You must understand that the presence of any two of these three planets in 5th house has got the power of making the couple childless. This means the presence of these planets in the fifth house gives a general indication that the person would not be blessed with children.
Please understand that if these three planets aspect the fifth house and ninth house which is fifth to fifth , then also the person would not be blessed with children. Under bhavat bhavam, ninth is fifth to fifth and ninth also represents the qualities of fifth house in addition to its own characteristics.
Like this, you have to analyze the characteristics of various planets and think of the results for general indications of various nature.
