Editor-Publisher: The bliss that comes to us when we see such a young mind working on BSP methods, there is full praise to Mr Venkat who worked dedicatedly on this method & developed it on his own without any guidance from our end. His humbleness, non-gossip attitude & extremely fast hard work enthralls us and makes our daily chat with him a pleasure. We thank Shri R.N.Acharya from Kadambi Book Stores, Hyderabad who has served astrology since last 5 decades in his own way & constantly encouraging us, for introducing Mr Venkat to us. Please find below a genuine praiseworthy piece of work.
After reading BSP-6 of the article one should genuinely get a doubt as to how ‘Exactly & Easily to give future predictions using this dictum. For instance when Mars influences 7th (which is 10th from itself) house in a nativity due to its position in the 10th house from ascendant, is it only marriage or relationship event will occur in the 27th year for any native? Surely not, marriage is one of the significations of the 7th It is for the astrologer to pinpoint the event which may take place for the native in his 27th year by applying the above rule. Here the wisdom of the astrologer comes in to force to announce the result. Without being complacent with the application of rule for the events already happened, an attempt is made here to decipher the key and apply the same with a view to facilitate future predictions with accuracy.
The steps followed for the method:
- Note the degree at which Mars is positioned in any birth chart.
- Note the kakshya (slot) in which Mars is posited. The concept of Kakshya (slot) is used in Ashtakavarga (eight parts of a sign) system of prediction. A sign is divided in to eight equal parts of 3 deg 45 min each. Each planet is given lordship of one kakshya (please see table below). The sequence of kakshya is akin to the sequence of the Hora (horas are seven in number) with only exception that ascendant becomes the owner of the eighth kakshya. A village astrology memory table helps one in remembering the sequence of hora. Remember it the Hora Table as from slowest moving planet to the fastest moving planet. Saturn-Jupiter-Mars-Sun-Venus-Mercury-Moon (of course the first hora of day will change on each day). The kakshya of the signs are constant. The table is given for ready reference.
- One should be thorough with the Karakatwas (Significations) of the Planets and the Houses. This becomes the most important factor in this method of prediction.
- If there is a planet located exactly at the same degree as mars in the 10th from Mars it will be influenced by Mars in the 27th year of the native. It means the significations of the planet will be activated along with the house for which it is lord. For instance if Mars is placed at 10 degrees of Aries and if Venus is at 10 degrees of Capricorn then Mars would influence Venus in the 27th
- If there is not a planet as in point (5) above then Mars would activate the Kakshya lord and his significations as also the significations of the house(s) for which he is lord in the chart.
Now let us analyze the charts given in Part –I of the Article by using the above steps. It is reiterated that the basic premise on which the method is developed is the BSP-6, Mars – 10Th House rule.
The native of this chart born on 13th Dec 1948 TOB: 13:41 POB: Amalapuram, Andhra Pradesh. The native got married on 06th Jan 1975 at the age 27.

Mars has to implement in the 10th from itself in the 27th year. Tenth from Mars is Virgo which is 7th from Ascendant. As there is no planet in Virgo Mars will influence the kakshya lord and the houses he owns. The kakshya lord Mercury is also the 7th lord signifying marriage. Therefore the native got married being kakshya lord and the 7th lord too and placed in the 9H of religious ceremony.

The house which is tenth from mars (Pisces) has Venus at 27° 50 “. As explained above since there is a planet which is exactly at the same degree as mars, it will activate this planet (Venus) in the 27th year of the native. In this case Venus is the 7th lord and kalatra karaka. Therefore the native got married in his 27th year.

During the 27th year the native got a promotion on 24th Oct 1994 in his job and also married on 27th Apr 1995. Here note that Mars is located at 19 °45 ” of Cancer sign, tenth from this sign is Aries and there is no planet located at the degree which mars is located. In this case Mars has to influence the kakshya (19° 45″) lord Mercury. The Kakshya lord Mercury in this chart is the Amatya karaka and the lord of dharma house (9th) and located in 11th house of promotion. Further, Mercury being the lord of 12th house (house of bed comforts/pleasures) located in 11th house of marriage. 11th house is marriage as per BPHS.

Mars is located at 23 °09″ of Gemini which is kakshya of Moon the 11th lord. As indicated earlier 11H is also the house of marriage as per BPHS and thus Moon gave marriage to the native.

Mars is the lord of 11th house also and during 27th year the native took up another job with fairly high salary. Mars has fulfilled the significations of both 6th and 11th houses.

Conclusion: The use of kakshya in the Mars 10th house dictum is giving very accurate results & this scribe has used this method in last few months to even predict successfully using it. Predictions for charts Nos. 7 and 8 above were given applying the kakshya method and the results were later on confirmed from the natives. With the use of this method any one can arrive to a near to correct picture of the nature event which may take place in the life of a nativity. The readers are requested to be thorough with the Karakatwas (significations) of the houses and planets before venturing prediction using this method. This technique will work more profitably to those who follow the rules of Jyotisha Purusha.
