ll planets have their sub planet
then why should be Rahu ignored!
Perhaps it`s shadowy existence. But why
we divide the day into eight equal parts!
Why we should put aside a part without
its identifi cation! It is the part of Rahu and
rises after Saturn`s part. Gulika and Mandi
may be same. Calculate the ascendant for
the beginning portion of Rahu`s Astamsh.
It is Rahu Kaal.
It acts just like Rahu. When it is posited in
the ascendant, create hypocrite, deceitful,
mischievous personality. It can hamper
good quality and attitude of a good planet
or house and worsen the quality of malefi c
planet to which it joins. Let us see some
Swami Nityanand : January 1,
1978 at 00h 32m at 79E05, 12N15
(Tiruvannamalai, TN), Ayanamsa-Lahiri
Sun rise- 6h34m12s, Sun set-17h59m09s or
17.9858 hour and next Sun rise- 6h34m36s
or 6.576 hours IST
This is the matter of
Saturday night. So
we have to calculate
night duration that
sun rise – sun
= 6.576 hour (+24 hour) – 17.9858 hour
= 12.59017 hours or 12 hours 35 minutes
and 24 seconds
Now divide it into eight equal parts as
there are total eight Astamsa. So we get
the duration of one part that is 1.574
hours or 1 hour 34 minute 27 seconds.
The night of any day is equal to fi fth day
from day in question. So night of Saturday
is equal to Wednesday.
So fi rst Astamsa is of Mercury, fourth
Astamsa is of Saturn and fi fth Astamsa
is of Rahu. Rahu`s period always comes
So period of Saturn (4th part) started
from 22.7068 hours of previous date as
date changed from 24 hours. Calculating
ascendant at this time will provide the
longitude of Gulika, the part of Saturn.
Rahu`s period (5th part) started from
24.281 hours or 00 h 16m 51s. Calculating
ascendant at this moment will provide the
longitude of Rahu Kaal the part of Rahu.
In this case it is 5-17/20. So Rahu kaal is
posited over Virgo sign.
Now see his birth chartThe
Rahu Kaal is posited in the ascendant
with Rahu adding fuel to fi re. Rahu alone
is not so bad but its association with
Rahu Kaal in the ascendant made him
hypocrite, mischievous and lascivious.
His sex scandal is known to all. The Moon
is mind and a planet get affl iction by the
presence of malefi c in his star. The Rahu
and its sub planet Rahu Kaal is posited
over the star of Moon.
Asaram Bapu: April 17, 1941 at 12h.
00m. at 68E22, 25N22 (Hyderabad,
Sindh, Pakistan), Ayanamsa-Lahiri
The Rahu Kaal is at sign Gemini of 18
degrees and 30 minutes.
He is in the jail on account of his sexual
assault and misdoings. The Rahu Kaal in
the ascendant at sign Gemini has made
him a man of hypocrite personality. The
Moon is also within the aspect of it in both
Vargas. So his mind becomes the seat of
* Longitude of Rahu Kaal in the 1st, 2nd,
5th, 7th, 8th or in the 9th house either
from ascendant or from Navamsa can
cause a horoscope sensitive for snake
June 9, 2007 at 22h. 30m. at 77E28,
Rahu Kaal is at sign Aquarius of 19
degrees and twenty minutes.
She gets her early end by snake biting.
The Rahu Kaal is posited in the 2nd house
with Rahu made her sensitive to snake
* The predictive rules given in the classical
text by the name of Gulika or Mandi are
related with only part of Saturn. We can
take Uttarakalamrat written by Kaalidas
is an exemption. The rules given in this
book are only related with Rahu Kaal since
his method of calculation provides the
longitude of Rahu Kaal and not of Gulika
or Mandi which is the part of Saturn.
