See occupancy of the Lagna.
If there is a benefic here, doctor is up to speed.
Malefic here shows doctor’s lack of effectiveness.
Retrograde planet here means doctor will be changed.
Weak Lagna Lord with 2nd House / Lord connection speaks of doctor’s eye being on the money with treatment being secondary for the doctor.
Is the patient getting the correct treatment? Is there a benefic in the 4th?
Malefic in the 4th? Treatment lacks.
Retrograde planet in the 4th? Approach will be changed.
Is the disease treatable? Is there a benefic in the 7th?
Malefic in the 7th? Disease is probably not responding to treatment.
Retrograde planet in the 7th? This speaks of a relapse.
Though Prashna uses the 7th House for disease, what with its favouritism towards Kendras and all, please also freely use the 6th House and its Lord to also get an idea about implications of disease.
A benefic in the 10th makes the patient willing to follow rules and guidelines.
Malefic here results in the opposite.
Retrograde planet here speaks of a patient not inclined towards treatment in the first place.
Apart from gauging the patient from the 10th, one can also intuitively use the Lagna and see what fits for the patient.
Ketu in the Lagna could indicate a hidden condition. Rahu here making healing tough.
If the Moon is strong, connected to benefics, or in a Shubh Kartari Yoga, recovery will be fast. Moon in Paap Kartari indicates the opposite, with disease worsening. Moon in 6/8/12 is no help either.
Seat of the disease can be intuitively arrived upon, by seeing what hits the eye, and using correspondence between body parts and zodiac signs.
With Lagna Lord and 10th Lord connecting well, doctor takes to the patient. Good.
With 4th Lord and 7th Lord connecting well, treatment addresses disease. Great.
With Lagna Lord and 4th Lord connecting well, doctor’s eyes are more on treatment and earning therefrom.
With 7th Lord connecting well to 10th Lord, disease takes to the patient. Not so good.
Strong Lagna Lord or Moon in Kendra leads to cure.
Lagna Lord should outdo the 8th Lord in strength. That’s good for recovery.
Connection of Lagna Lord with 6th House / Lord is not so good for recovery.
Venus in the Lagna is difficult for cure. Though there is a scientific explanation for this going into House Lordships and Nakshatras, let’s just say that Venus does like luxuries, and the patient might find it difficult to stop indulging.
Lagna Lord, Moon, or 8th Lord in Kendra, connected to retrogression – this makes things tough. How tough? You decide. Quite tough, though.
However, look for a string to pull on. Look for hope. Any bit of help you can give the querist is a bonus. Be positive and optimistic. Don’t spell doom – this might worsen the condition.
You’ll see some unique combinations, because Prashnas coming to you are yours alone.
When you see something for the first time, and understand the combination intuitively, don’t be afraid to use what you’re seeing as per your understanding. That’s fine.
Ultimately, you’ll get a full idea of the combination’s working and application, subject to fine-tuning now and then.
See what works, and go with it.
See the totality. Speak in summation. Say less. Each word you say will have a large effect. The person coming to you has come at a vulnerable time. Each word from your mouth will have immense power.
Make sure that maximum goodness comes out of your mouth, to cause maximum benefit.
There will be times that you are seeing something difficult.
Your job is to say it in a manner that clutches onto any string of hope and comes forth in a way that is minimally aggravating and maximally beneficial.
No one said this was an easy job. Now that you are in this line, might as well do it par excellence.
