Importance of Constellation (Nakshatra) and Sub

In offering even the least complicated judgement in KP Astrology, the constellation needs consideration. The sign in which a planet is posited is not very important. The house occupied by a planet should be judged, taking into account the constellation in which the planet is deposited. The role of the sign occupied by a planet is not as important as that of the constellation. This factor is a major deviation from the thinking in traditional Vedic Astrology.

Guruji, Shri KSK, has given many examples in which, if a planet is in the 12th bhaava, by traditional methods, it is said that it should cause separation, loss, issue of cheque etc. But when actually observed, there is reunion, gain, receipt of money etc. Guruji, in the 3rd Reader gives an example of a man, who was a close friend of his for many years. The gentleman in fact had gains, fortune and success during the periods of Saturn, Mars and Sun, which according to the traditional system ought to have been bad as being placed in the 12th bhaava. However, the gentleman had untoward results during the periods of Venus posited in 11 and Ketu in 10! According to the traditional system, Saturn and Sun ought to have been worse, but they were beneficial. Venus and Mercury causing Dharma-Karmaadhipati yoga in the chart should have given brilliant results, but they proved bad! Guruji, exclaims that studying such charts for many years alone opened his eyes. He observed that a planet A offers the results of the house occupied by that planet B which is the lord of the star wherein planet A is situated.

Again trouble arose when 2, 3 or 4 planets were found in the same constellation. Guruji, Shri KSK, observed that, even those planets in the same constellation gave sometimes diametrically opposite results. This made him go further and divide each constellation into 9 SUBs as explained in an earlier article in this reference. Guruji, proved through untiring research that planets occupying any one constellation have connection with the bhaava occupied by the lord of the constellation. These planets in that constellation were termed as the "Significators" of the bhaava occupied by the constellation lord. Then he further said that, even when a planet signifies a bhaava, whether it offers good results or bad ones, depends on which SUB division it is placed within that constellation. So, whether the significator votes for the success or failure of the matter at hand, depends on the ultimate judge - the SUB lord in whose sub division the significator is deposited.

In order to judge whether the significator can do good or bad, one should therefore, very logically judge, what the SUB lord himself signifies. Because fundamentally, every planet gives the results of the houses he signifies (that is the house occupied and houses owned by the lord of the star in which the planet is placed), it is quite but natural to consider that a planet having signification of good houses or favorable bhaavas can only do good. Therefore, if the SUB lord is a significator of good bhaavas (here good means bhaavas favorable to the results at hand), then the matter comes through, else it falls apart. This great discovery "crowned" Shri KSK with success and he became the unquestioned Monarch, the real Jyotish Marthand, who shed his luminous compassion on the scene of Indian Astrology which was until then shrouded in the medieval throes.

Therefore, Guruji said that if a planet is the significator of the lagna bhaava (is located in the constellation of a planet occupying the lagna), it gives long life, success in attempts, helps maintain a good and sound health, PROVIDED, the sub lord in whose sub division this planet is deposited, is NOT the significator of 6, 8 or 12. If the sub lord signifies 6 (is located in the constellation of a planet occupying the sixth bhaava), he falls ill, if signifying 8, he meets with danger and if signifying 12 one runs away or is imprisoned or hospitalised.

Thus, every planets' results, ultimately depend on the SUB LORD - that is the lord of the sub division of the constellation in which the significator planet is located. This is the true essence of Krishnamurtipaddhati and the SUB LORD really SPEAKS! One should only have the mind to listen with attention and have the clarity of thought to understand what the SUB LORD has spoken.
