Lagna Lagna Rising Bright

How does the Lagna rise?

Head first? Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Aquarius rise with head first, indicating a good and sincere query, and favouring fulfilment of query.

Feet first? Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Sagittarius and Capricorn rise with feet first, possibly indicating impure-hearted or insincere queries, and also possibly well leading to failure. 

Pisces rises with both head and feet, which is considered middling to not so bad, as in delay could then be followed by a positive outcome. 

Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are movable Lagnas, and they speak of change in the situation.

Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are fixed Lagnas, and they denote status quo. 

Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are dual / mutable Lagnas, and here, one needs to see their degree. 0 to 15 degrees makes them closer to the preceding fixed signs, favouring status quo. 15 to 30 degrees makes them closer to the following movable signs, favouring change in situation.

Logic might tell us, that if a natural benefic is sitting in Lagna, this could be considered good for the outcome of the query.

Is this necessarily so?

Let’s observe the following case, illuminated upon by Mr. Deepak Kapoor in one of his Prashna lectures at the Bhartiya Vidya Bhawan, New Delhi, in 2002.

 Well, Jupiter’s influence on Lagna is generally good for outcome, but above case represents an “exception”.

Jupiter in the Lagna speaks of the querist’s philanthropic approach.

Aspecting the 7th, a good outcome is promised for the opponent, here the brother.

Thus, it would not be unimaginable that querist contemplates donating disputed property to brother.

Hence, Jupiter’s presence in Lagna here is not “good” for querist’s side of things.

Try replacing this Jupiter with Saturn.

Now, the querist will fight long and steadfast, tooth and nail, towards retaining the property. 

Analysis of query will depend upon nature of query. 

Let’s say a fixed Lagna comes up, and you’re asking about your job. Fixed job is indicated with nil movement. 

If a movable Lagna came up, a traveling job would be more befitting. 

Someone is ill.

Will the patient recover?

A movable Lagna comes up. 

Situation will change.

Recovery is indicated. 

Someone is ill.

It’s bad.

Querist doesn’t know if patient will survive.

Querist is battling with question in the mind. 

Finally, the querist asks.

Will the patient die?

It will be great if now a movable Lagna doesn’t come up.

Why Sheer Prashna?

Well, why not?

Firstly, what is sheer Prashna?

Prashna only. Unaccompanied by birth-chart.

Why?

It’s fun.

You fill in the blanks.

You read without bias.

You connect to universal forces seamlessly, ultimately. You have no choice but to, for the reading to carry weight.

Some might say the same for the birthchart. Sure. Whatever cooks your goose, or fries your bacon, or what have you, do that kind of Astrology.

Blanks can be big. Your imagination needs to be fantastic, to fill these. With a burgeoning imagination, you often fill the blanks with nonsense, and the reading goes way off its mark.

It’s ok.

Three times out of ten, and you shouldn’t worry. Recognize that the reading has gone off, admit it, apologise if you have to, try again, but if need be, have the strength and presence of mind to abort.

You’re not a bad Astrologer, it’s just that the reading has gone awry. Move on.

Two times out of ten comes. Improving majorly.

Ultimately, you start connecting at will. Sheer Prashna will do that fast for you. Reading failures lessen. You’re functioning at peak. Do what you’ve come to do. Use your Astrology for maximum good.

There’s a side-effect happening.

Your multiple connections have made you a recognizable conduit.

Who has recognized you?

Mankind?

Human recognition has limited value and lots of side-effects. Pay no attention to it. Be happy if it doesn’t even come, as long as your consulters are leaving your surroundings in a satisfied frame of mind.

So who has recognized you?

Universal force has, as a conduit through which it can flow. Now, it won’t leave you. Next connection will be easier. And so forth. Seamlessness will arrive. Ultimately, you will be connecting at will.

Connection will have effects on you. Through you, energy will overflow in the form of words. This energy will transform that which comes in contact with it. At times, you will wonder, is it even you speaking? How did you make that analogy with a particular combination? Normally, you would never have arrived at that particular conclusion upon seeing the combination at hand. Then you see the other person beaming, as what you’ve said has struck many chords. This is transformation in action. It has come through you. In the bargain, it has taught a new meaning to an Astrological combination. It’s a win-win. You don’t need the Classics, you’re learning from the Universal Force itself. The saints who wrote the Classics connected to the Universal Force to do so. You are connecting to this same source. Sheer Prashna will make all this happen very fast for you.

You’ll need to be a bit careful, though.

All this connection with extra-terrestrial energies will subtract from your worldiness, and will add to your other-worldliness.

To live in our mad world full of frenzy, one does need to be street-smart, and somewhat worldly. If you’re getting renumerated with money, that’ll help in staying worldly. If not, you’ve got a small issue. Especially if you’re a family man with worldly duties.

Hmmm, how do you wheedle your way out of this one?

Pick up a small vice, but keep it contained. Hahahahahahaha, just joking. 🙂
