Venkat is a law graduate and presently pursuing post graduation in management. He has studied Jyotish Visharada in the ICAS (Indian council of astrological sciences) and is an honorary faculty in one of its branches at Hyderabad. He has been studying palmistry for more than 10 years and over a period of time his interest drifted towards astrology. A friend of Saptarishis Astrology and a very humble yet extremely dedicated student of this subject. He is a senior member of the Saptarishis Astrology Re-Search Team.

We hear so many incidents that astrologers of the past used to identify the purpose of the visit of a client who visits them just by looking at the horoscope of the native without being told by the client and stun them. I was thinking many a times whether it is possible to do so and tried to identify the reasons for the visit of people who come to consult me. Most of the times I failed. Then I thought it may not be possible for me. But without giving up I tried to co-relate in various ways as to why the client visits an astrologer at a specified moment. Do the planets indicate to the astrologer the purpose of visit of the client? If so, in what way? Is it not possible for the astrologer to identify the reason for the visit of the client and pronounce the results just by looking at the horoscope of the native without being prompted by the client the reasons for his visit? These are the questions which haunted me for long.

Further, there is one more reason why my thoughts cruised in this direction. When a patient visits a doctor he himself tells the doctor the problems/symptoms which he is suffering from for a correct diagnosis and suggesting the medicine.  Here the patient is very cautious while explaining his problems to the doctor as he is aware that a probable wrong diagnosis by the doctor may suggest him wrong medicine and the side effects which he has to undergo if such a medicine is administered. Whereas

when he visits an astrologer he expects the astrologer to identify the purpose of his visit and all his problems just by going through

his birth chart (most of the times the birth data may not be accurate) and pronounce the result and suggest remedies. He expects that an astrologer must be equipped with such knowledge and when an astrologer fails to do so his opinion on the astrologer is lessened. There is no problem if the client forms such an opinion on an astrologer but it is a concern if he forms such an opinion on the science of astrology. Of course, there are so many methods available to identify the purpose of visit of the clients to the astrologer, from omens to body language to the direction of the drifting of the light of the lamp by a village astrologer to the prashna by the modern day astrologer. However, the environment in which the modern day astrologer lives in may not permit him to use the traditional methods like omens, drifting of the light of lamp as they have become not noticeable. One can use prashna for to identify the purpose of visit of a client. But is it possible to construct a prashna chart always? It may not be possible at times. During such times is there a simple method to identify the purpose of the visit of the native by looking at the natives’ chart.  

With a view to know the purpose of the visit of a client to an astrologer an attempt is made to take the help of the Hora and the Sub-hora prevailing at the time of consultation. In this method astrologer must be thorough with the calculation of the hora and sub-hora for each day. It is well known that ‘Hora’ means an hour. The hora has to be reckoned from the sunrise time. First hora on a day will be ruled by the day lord. Further, sub-hora has to be calculated in the sequence of the hora lords. In order to know the hora sequence the following table is helpful. The hora sequence is from the slowest moving planet (Saturn) to the fastest moving planet (Moon).

Saturn

Jupiter

Mars

Sun

Venus

Mercury

Moon

Let us go through the hora sequence on a Monday for twenty four hours from Sun rise to the next Sun rise (i.e. Tuesday). Assume that Sun rise time is at 6 AM.

7-8

8-9

9-10

10-11

It could be seen from the above table that the first hora on Tuesday will be of its lord Mars. Further it can be observed that the same hora repeats after every seven hours.

Now let us see the sequence of the sub hora lords. An hour contains 60 minutes and there are seven hora lords in number. If we divide an hour by seven we get 8 ½ minutes approximately. Therefore, there will be seven subhoras in an hour. The first sub-hora in any hora is ruled by the Hora lord and the sequence goes on in the Hora sequence.

With the help of Hora and Sub-hora it was tried to identify the purpose of the visit of the client by looking at his natal chart. It is experienced that in most of the cases either the Hora or the Sub-hora lord is giving the hint as to the nature of query the client may pose. Now let us go through some charts where with the help of hora and sub-hora the purpose of the visit of the client was predicted successfully.

Rules

  1. For the above purpose one need to have the natal chart of the client and
  2. Identify the hora and sub hora at the time of consultation.
  • One should also know the exact time of Sun rise at the place of consultation.

Chart No. 1

chart 280

The native of this chart approached scribe on 31-03-2009 at 15:33 hrs. It was a Tuesday and the Sun rise time was at 06:14. The hora prevailing at the time was of Venus and the Sub-hora was of Mercury. Now in the natal chart Venus is the 2nd and 9th lord and Mercury is the 1st and 10th lord. The lords of 2nd, 1st and 10th are concerned with profession and the 9th lord is of luck (bhagya).  The native came to enquiry about his prospects for profession.  In this case the hora and the sub-hora clearly indicated the purpose of visit of the client.

Chart No. 2

The below native approached on 5th April 2009 at about 10:59 am on Sunday and the Sun rise time was 06:11. The hora prevailing at that time was of Saturn and the Sub-hora ruled by Moon. In the natal chart the hora lord Saturn is located in the 6th house and the sub-hora lord Moon is located in the 10th house, both indicating profession. The native asked about his profession. Further, native was running Rahu-Saturn-Saturn dasha. Predominantly the karaka for profession Saturn was indicating the purpose of consultation.

The native approached on 5th April 2009 at about 11:02 am on Sunday and Sunrise time was 6:11 am. The hora prevailing at that time was of Saturn and the Sub-hora ruled by Moon. In the natal chart Saturn was the 10th lord and Moon the 3rd lord. The hora lord indicates that the question is regarding profession and the sub hora lord Moon indicates change. The native asked regarding changing his job.

The above native approached on 5th April 2009 at around 03:24 pm on Sunday and Sunrise time was 6:11 am. The hora prevailing at the time was of Mercury and the sub-hora was of Moon.  In the birth chart Mercury is the 7th and 10th lord and Moon is the 8th lord posited in 5th house of love.  This indicates the question will be regarding 7th house and 5th house. The person asked the prospects of his marriage.

Chart No. 6

The chart given below is of a lady. Her father consulted scribe on 9th April 2009 at 11:18 am on a Thursday. Sunrise time was 06:09 am. Hora prevailing at the time of consultation was of Moon and the sub- hora was of Saturn. Please see the chart the hora lord Moon is the 12th lord posited in the 7th house and Saturn is the 7th lord. This clearly indicates that the question is regarding 7th house and Moon being the 12th lord indicates disturbances in the marital life. The question was regarding marital harmony.

chart 283
chart 284

The chart is pertaining to a girl pursuing her studies. The chart was given on 17th April 2009 at evening 06:39. It was a Friday and the hora prevailing at that time was of Mars and the sub hora was of Saturn. In the birth chart Mars is 4th and 9th lord and Saturn is the 6th and 7th lord. The hora lord Mars indicates the question may be regarding education. The girl asked scribe whether there will be any breaks in her education. Later scribe understood that there is a break in her education due to a love affair. Then I understood the significance of the sub hora lord Saturn located in the 5th house in the birth chart.

Writing in retrospect at times it is very easy to predict with this method, at times the hora and sub hora lord creates a slight puzzle which a discerning and intuitive astrologer can unravel maybe easily. We leave it to the readers to experiment it further with this method and one thing is sure the more we practice with this method on 40-50 charts the more one would become adept in using this method.
