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.

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.
