In Jyotish astrologers are always in search of techniques that will give them highly accurate timing of events, techniques that get a “Wow” response from a client. Most will be aware of Mahadashas, Antardashas, Transits, etc. But nowadays we’re in the era of fast food, instant messaging, 10 second reels on social media like Instagram, Tik Tok, YouTube, Facebook, etc. and everyone is in a big hurry. The human attention span nowadays is much shorter.
We have people who call astrologers for a consultation and expect him or her to start telling them their past events in 20-30 seconds and if they can’t do this they think the astrologer is probably incompetent. All of us who have spent years in Jyotish know that it’s not easy to start telling events from a chart in a few seconds. One usually needs a longer duration of time to do the calculations and organize the information needed for a proper reading. What if there is a technique that actually lets you see the events that happened in the client’s life in a few seconds? A little over two years back Sunil John revealed such a technique in the Rahu-Ketu webinar. He has graciously allowed me to reveal this to everyone via the Saptarishis Astrology Magazine.
This technique is so amazing and I’ve tested it on many charts and it always works. Even astrologer friends who tested it have been amazed that once one knows this technique one can actually tell people what’s been happening in the recent past in seconds. It not only shows you what has happened, but also shows what is likely happening now and in the near future. This is a kind of Swiss Army knife type of technique, a bit like BCP that one can very easily use and master.
Use this technique to get the attention of the client and then you can do your deeper calculations and analysis to guide them well and hopefully help them overcome some of their Shadripus in this life.
The Technique is:
1) One has to note the house Rahu is 8th from. In this house there would be some issues or events during the duration of the Rahu transit.
2) One has to see the house that Rahu is in. There would be some events and issues for the duration of the Rahu transit in that house.
3) One should look at the house that is second from Rahu. There would be some events and issues there that happen during the transit of Rahu in the previous house.
4) One has to see the House that is before Rahu. There would be some events and issues there for the duration of the Rahu transit in the next house.
Don’t be deceived by the apparent simplicity of the technique. Some may argue as to why it’s possible that just a Rahu transit can indicate so much. My reply would be to test it on at least 20 charts and see how it’s working. It’s quite likely that many of the readers would add this to their repertoire of tried and tested techniques for consultation once they have mastered it. The example charts below would help understand the technique better.
When using the technique we shall know which houses get affected. This doesn’t mean we ignore the planets in them, their house lords, aspects, transits and other Jyotish basics.
In the example charts the houses to be looked at are marked by a star.

Not always will the events be negative. As mentioned earlier we must keep in mind our basics and use our experience to figure out the possible events.
I hope this short article will help many in their Jyotish chart analyses!
