Mental Maths

For different ascendants it becomes difficult to check what sign it is in particular house. requires mental counting from ascendant ..time consuming and difficult
Here’s a simple technique
To know which sign occupies what house mentally. Do this:
  1. Consider your ascemdant sign number. Eg. Gemini – its number is 3
  2. Now if you want to find the sign in 8th house. SIMPLY SUBTRACT 1 from the house for which you want to find the sign ( 8th house – 1 = 7)
  3. Now add that number to the ascemdant sign. (Add number 7 to 3 ascemdant sign = 10 Capricorn)
  4. That gives your sign in that number. In case number is more than 12, simply subtract that number from 12. (Capricorn)
Example 2: to find 6th house for Pisces
  1. Ascendant number is 12
  2. 6th house – 1 = 5
  3. 12+5 = 17
  4. 17-12 = 5.
  5. So Leo (5) occupies 6th house for Pisces Ascendant

Finer Techniques of astrological predictions by K N Rao
In the chapter composite approach to predictions are use of you Mrity Bhaga part II page 119.
“….In any method of interpretation if the literal meaning is taken as has been given here NO ONE CAN INTERPRET A HOROSCOPE PROPERLY. PREDICTION IN ASTROLOGY IS AN ART OF SYNTHESIS”
P. 161 – Finer techniques of Astrologically cal Prediction Vol 1.
“”Those who come under the sway of western thinking and insist,that man has complete freedom, woll be surprised how it can be seen through Hindu Astrology that man’s freewill can operate only within his predestined fate and never outside.”
From ” Predicting through Jaimini Chara Dasha, P.56  – K N Rao
“Detailed work in the beginning leads to a habit of looking at an event from various angles and is more elaborate than a medical diagnosis. When a point of Saturation is reached, sound predictions can be made with leaser details. Then it is like an experienced doctor’s clinical diagnosis.”
P.81- Jaminini chara dasha K N Rao
