Addressing Disease in Prashna

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.

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.

Seeing Karma

Chart.

It’s open.

You are immersed. 

What do you see?

Lagna?

LL?

Moon?

ML?

Sun?

Planets?

Nodes?

Aspects?

Dashas?

Exchanges?

Houses?

Nakshatras?

And so on …

… or …

… do you see Karma?

Strands of Karma …

… do you see them?

How strong are the strands?

Are they fickle?

Thin?

Breakable?

Or are they strong?

Unbreakable, like cables of copper or aluminium?

Or, are they maybe breakable, maybe not, like a jute strand?

Gauge.

Gauge the strength of Karma.

That’s not all. 

You’re gauging a few more things. 

You’re gauging the speed at which an arrow has been shot.

You’re extrapolating to it’s current speed.

Is the speed slow enough, such that the arrow can change course if a wind starts to blow?

Has the arrow been shot with such speed that it’s course will not change, no matter what?

That’s (drida) Prarabdha Karma.

Now gauge the target.

Is the target mobile and tensile enough to bend away from the arrow?

Is the target even aware of an arrow headed his or her way?

What leverage does the target enjoy?

Enough to get away with it?

Not?

You’re gauging whether Kriyamana Karma is strong enough to perhaps lessen impact of Prarabdha.

Next you’re looking at the entire bunch of arrows, including the dormant ones. 

Some are waiting to be shot. 

Some have been nullified before being shot. It’s almost like they won’t be shot. 

A couple are in the bow, which has been pulled. These are about to go off. 

What’s the bottom-line?

You’re talking more Karma and less Astrology. 

Is that a good thing?

Why not?

It all boils down to Karma in the end. 

We can start talking about Karma from the beginning.

More like a top-down approach as opposed to a bottom-up one.
