Now the significators that contribute to the fructification of the telephone trunk call are Mercury, Jupiter, Rahu, Mars, Venus, Moon and Sun.
The 3rd cusp is in the star of Kethu and sub of Moon. The 11 th cusp is in Venus star and Mars sub.
As the sub-lords of these cusps happen to be strong significators, the fructification of the call is assured.
In order to fix the significators which will rule the moment when the call materialises, take the ruling planets at the time of judgment:
- The day was Sunday whose ruler is Sun.
- The star in which Moon was transiting at the time of booking was ruled by Sun.
- The sign in which Moon was transiting was Makara, ruled by Saturn.
- The rising at the time of booking was Libra, owned by Venus.
- The rising star in which lagna falls was Jupiter.
So the ruling planets are Sun, Saturn, Venus and Jupiter.
The common ones found among the significators are Sun, Jupiter and Venus. These planets conjointly indicate the time of fructification of the trunk call, irrespective of whether it is a minor or major event. As the call will be realised within a few minutes or hours, the transit of the lagna is to be considered, So I calculated the position of Zodiac to rise in the East. It can be Venus sign, Jupiter star, Sun sub, Venus sub sub. So, as stated above, the rising lagna will be 29° 20' Libra.
The correct time of fructification of trunk call was calculated taking Nirayana lagna as 29° 20' Libra. The Ayanamsa adopted was 23° 20’. Sidereal time for the Moon at Metale on this date is 11 hr. 59 mts. 52 sec. When calculated, the result arrived at was 9.41 A.M. So I declared the trunk call will materialize at 9.41 A.M. only.
As predicted the telephone trunk call came through sharp at 9.41 A.M.
Horary Astrology through Number System (K.P.)
A number is requested for between 1 & 249 and the ascendant is obtained through the Ready Reference table given at Chapter -2. The cusps and planetary positions
are accordingly worked out for the time of query. While analysing and evolving the significators the principles as mentioned in Chapter - 2 should continue to be applied.
An example will illustrate this application more clearly :
How Long will one live?
Ask for a number between 1 and 249: for that number fix the ascendant referring to the Table for Krishnamurthy paddhati.
If the ascendant is in a movable sign, 11th house is the badhakasthana, if the ascendant falls in a fixed sign, 9th house is the badhakasthana if the ascendant falls in a common sign, the 7th house is the badhakasthana.
Whatever be the sign in which the ascendant falls, the 2nd and the 7th houses are marakasthanas. Therefore one is to judge all these three houses and find out the significators.
One has to erect the map and note down the dasha balance to find out the date of death.
According to western system, the ascendant, the Moon and the Sun should not be forming evil aspects with the lord of 4,6,8 and 12, and at the same time the lord of the ascendant, the Moon and the Sun must be strong. In that case, long life is promised. Jupiter and Venus ruling good houses and the lord of the ascendant forming good aspect with Moon or Sun promises long life. But if the ascendant, Moon and Sun are receiving bad aspects like square, opposition, conjunction etc., from the lord of 4, 6, 8 or 12, only short life is indicated. This is how the westerners proceed, they say that the ascendant, its lord and the Moon indicate the consultant’s health and longevity. They add that lord of the ascendant retrograde or deposited in 8, or lord of 8 in one, or malefics occupying one and 8 will cause short life.
To note for how many more years one would live, they calculate as follows :
If the lord of the ascendant will from either conjunction or square or opposition with Sun or to the lord of 8, 6 or 4, calculate how many degrees he is away from that planet. Then calculate according to the rules given already.
