#### When will the Trunk-Call Materialise?

Consider the houses 3, 9 and 11. Take the sub-lord of the 11th cusp and find out whether the lord of the constellation in which the sub-lord is deposited, is not retrograde. If it were to be retrograde, no purpose will be served by that call. If the lord of the constellation in which third cusp sub-lord is deposited is retrograde, the call will not materialise. If the sub-lord of the 9th cusp is retrograde, the other party cannot be contacted. But if they are in direct motion find out the significators of the houses 3,9 and 11 as it will materialise.

Since the call is to materialise in minutes or in hours one need not work out dasha balance, one has to note only the movement of the ascendant and calculate when the ascendant will come to the position in the zodiac which is governed by the ruling planets and also the significators of the houses 3, 9 and 11.

A planet which is the significator of 3 should also be the significators of 9 or 11. Similarly the significator of 9 also should be the significator of 3 or 11. The significator of 11 should be the significator of 3 or 9. Such of the significators alone must be taken. If a planet is not the significator of 9 and 11 but is the significator of 6 or 8 or 12, one can take it that, that particular planet is not the significator for this trunk-call, even though it is the significator of the third house. Similarly if a planet is the significator of the 9 and it is also the significator of 6 or 8 or 12 and is not the significator of 3 or 11, then the party in, the other end will be absent, only when significator of the 9th is also a significator or either 3 or 11, then alone he will answer the call. If a planet is the significator of the 11th house and not the significator of 3 or 9, but is the significator of other houses reject this planet. Select those planets which are the significator of the 11th house and also the significator of 3 or 9 or both.

On 2-9-1969 a telephone trunk call to Kandy was booked at 9.00 A.M. As it was an urgent call and Kandy was about 50 miles away from Matale. I expected the trunk call within an hour or two if the line is in order. Before I could get the call I worked out the time of fructification of the call according to Krishnamurti Padhdhati.

Time of judgment : 9.00 A.M : 21-9-1969; 7°28’N; 80° 22'E., Matale (Sri Lanka)

Lagna : 20-22’, Ayanamsa used : 23° 20’

For the fructification of telephone trunk call, houses 3 and 11 have to be judged.

The third house is occupied by the Moon. Mercury and Jupiter occupy the star of Moon. Jupiter is the lord of 3rd.

Rahu is in Jupiter star. So the significators are Mercury, Jupiter and Rahu.

The eleventh house is occupied by Kethu, Sun and Jupiter. Mars and Venus are posited in the constellation ruled by Kethu. Moon, Sun and Kethu are in Sun’s constellation. Rahu is in the star of Jupiter; So the significators are Mars, Venus, Moon, Sun and Rahu.
