Pivotal Nature of the Prashna Lagna

Prashna gets activated when the seed of the query is sown in the Astrologer’s mind.

The Lagna is the starting point of a chart.

The seed is the starting point of a new beginning.

First, an Astrologer will always look at the Lagna.

With the seed of the Prashna sown and growing in the mind, the Astologer approaches the Prashna chart, and first looks at the Lagna.

Why is this a defining moment?

The condition of the Lagna will deflect the Astrologer’s mind one way or the other.

He or she will then follow upon that lead to find a suitable answer.

That’s why, the condition of the Lagna is pivotal for the way a query is answered.

What is the Lagna?

What is its degree?

Is it on an edge?

Is it troubled?

Who occupies it?

Is it empty?

Is it aspected?

Fixed?

Movable (Chara)?

Mutable?

Who is its Lord?

Is it’s Lord looking at it?

How is its Lord faring overall?

What is its Nakshatra?

How is its Nakshatra Lord faring overall?

These and such questions gauge the condition of the Lagna.

A groove gets set. A platform is built, upon which one can build further.

Let us say that above questions are not able to set a defining groove.

Meaning, that gauging the condition of the Lagna and following upon the lead to its logical conclusion is not helping one arrive at something.

Then one looks at other factors with more focus.

Moon.

Moon Lord.

Sun.

Occupancy of fixed, movable and mutable signs.

Anything else that is conspicuous.

Is an answer emerging? If not, one has the option of continuing to delve into the chart with self-defined or classic-defined tools. Fair enough.

However, if nothing concrete is emerging, even after such delving, one can also say that one isn’t able to gauge the answer.

That’s totally acceptable. Not every reading goes smoothly. Sometimes one is not able to read.

At other times the chart is inconclusive.

Readings also have to do with how much the querist is being allowed to know by Nature, karmically. Yeah, sometimes the answer stares you in the face, and you are just not able to see it. You realize later, but by that time the querist has already endured. Karma.

5 to 6 times out of 10 though, by the time one has gotten through above check-list till the word conspicuous, one does seem to have some kind of a satisfactory answer to the Prashna.

What’s your take on Power? 

Yeah. 

Extremely valid question. 

Do you realize your power? 

Yes, you, Astrologer. 

I’m talking to you. 

What power do you have? 

When do people come to you? 

Mostly, when they are in trouble. 

Financial trouble. 

Love trouble. 

Judicial trouble. 

Any trouble. 

Very few actually wake up from their good-times-stupour and decide to suddenly lean on Astrology to enhance their situation further. 

However, when destiny cracks a whip, humans do lean on Astrology. 

One word from you can tilt someone over the edge. 

However, one word from you can bring someone back from the edge too. 

That is your power. 

It hasn’t come to you without a reason. 

Now you need to come good. 

Live up to the demands of your power.

What does that mean? 

Weigh your words. 

They have value. 

Breathe. 

As you study the chart, take conscious time to breathe in the vibration of the person leaning upon you. 

Let that vibration mingle with your biochemistry. 

A groove will be created within you. This groove is the net result of every process happening at this moment between you and the person leaning upon you. 

This very groove, within you, is your intrinsic Desh-Kaal-Paatra-Matrix for the reading. 

You are receiving input from within this matrix. 

Within the matrix there is reaction. 

Synopsis. 

Hit. 

Output. 

Words reach your tongue. 

They have come from within the matrix. 

Now they exit your system to enter someone’s ear. 

These words are pure. Where do you think the Desh-Kaal-Paatra-Matrix is connecting you to? Without wanting to classify this area, one can still intuitively feel that your Desh-Kaal-Paatra-Matrix is connecting you to a pure area. Words are coming from a pure area. 

Are these your words? 

Yes? 

No? 

Unsure? 

Whatever the correct answer is, the words are coming through you. 

You are the channel. 

Are you a clean channel? 

Or are you dirty? 

Do you make an effort to cleanse yourself? 

So that even purer words can come through? 

Do you enhance your power? 

Will you misuse it? 

Or do you promise to use it, always, for the highest good?

Your call.
