Lal Kitab : An Astrological Marvel
Lal Kitab, originally published in urdu language,
enshrines such effective astrological principles and remedial
measures that it has rightly been termed as "The Wonder
Book" of Astrology.
The science of palmistry too has been explained in such an
exquisite manner that each of the 42 divisions of the human brain
have been related to the different houses of a man's birth chart
in such a scientific manner that the sketch of the human brain
reflects accurately on the lines of the palm. On the basis of
these lines of the palm one can draw the actual horoscope of an
individual and can do the placement of planets in various houses
of the birth chart. The date of birth and the birth ascendant can
be found out by reading the lines and mounts of the palm, which
means that an individual's accurate birth chart can be drawn by
seeing the lines of his palm. Similarly, by studying the
different aspects of a man's residential house his birth chart
can be accurately prepared on the basis of the sutras explained
in the Lal Kitab.
In addition to the above, Lal Kitab has announced
unique remedial measures to solve chronic and critical human
problems in day to day life. These measures do not require the
practice of ordeals, yagnas, havans and other complicated and
expensive rituals, which prove more troublesome for persons who
are already in trouble because of the evil effects of certain
planets. These measures are again different from Yantras, Mantras
and Tantras, which give various adverse effects if not followed
rigorously in all their minute details. The measures suggested in
Lal Kitab are electrically effective in solving all kinds of
human troubles and tensions, without inflicting harm on anybody
i.e. these remedies are completely self defensive against the
evils created by the planets without causing injury in anyway to
The first part of this great treatise contains the
principles and Sutras for interpretation of horoscope, termed as
"Vyakaran". The birth chart of an individual is
prepared like the traditional Parashar principles, but the only
important difference is that the Rashis are not considered or
taken into account for predictive astrology and, therefore, the
digits indicating the Rashis in a traditional birth chart are
scrapped. Secondly, for predictive purposes the ascendant is
treated as the first house and it is regarded as the house of the
first Rashi, i.e., Aries and counting progressively in a sequence
up to the 12th house being that of Pisces.The specific principles
of predictive astrology as per Lal Kitab are better summed up
here as follows
1. The Sun as lord of the 5th, the Mercury as lord
of the 3rd and 6th, the Jupiter as lord of the 9th and the Saturn
as lord of the 10th are directly or indirectly in some form or
the other are the Karakas of the father and his property. But the
Jupiter and the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury or Jupiter and Saturn
occupying any house jointly carry no relevance to the knowledge
about father or father's property at all. Even Mercury and Sun,
Mercury and Saturn or Sun and Saturn also sitting together behave
in the same manner.
2. If two or more inimical planets are occupying a
single house, they will not behave as enemies. But it does not
mean that they do not affect the influences of each other and
show their own results of being in that house independently i.e.
their conjunction does not affect their individual results.
3. Friendly planets together occupying a house
become extremely friendly and help each other in producing good
and auspicious results.
4. The 7th house is regarded as the Pucca Ghar
(permanent house) of Mercury. If Mercury is placed in the 7th
house of a horoscope, even the powerful planets like Sun, Mars,
Jupiter and Saturn occupying a Kendra, 2nd or 11th house can not
affect the health of the native adversely.
5. If a female planet is placed in any house along
with Saturn and both are being expected by any other planet, then
the expecting planet will become afflicted and affect adversely
the persons and relatives of such expecting planet as
6. In general, all planets in their Pucca Ghar,
own house or exalted house give good results. A planet in
inimical house or in a house of debilitation gives bad results.
If a planet is not placed in his Pucca Ghar and the same is
occupied by a planet inimical to such planet, then that planet
will destroy the good results of the house in which he stands
7. While examining a horoscope, the 1st, 7th, 8th
and 11th houses must be examined together as they are mutually
interested. The planets in the ascendant is treated as a ruler
and the one in the 7th acts as his minister. The planet in the
8th is the eye of that ruler, whereas the planet in the 11th
house is the ruler's foot.
More planets in the 7th house than the 1st house
shows that the ruler does not have required control over his
minister. If the planets in the 11th house are inimical to the
planets in the first house, then they will not obey the command
of the ruler i.e., the results of the 11th house will be
The planets of the 8th house (eyes) guide the
planets of the 7th house (minister) and control their actions and
effects. If the planets of the 1st and 8th houses are friendly,
then the planet in the 7th house can not play any mischief.
Mars in the 7th is considered to be highly
conducive for gaining large property. But if mercury is in the
Lagna, it will destroy the properties. It will be destroyed
because of the foolishness of the native, because here the
Mercury being in the first house is Karaka of the native. At the
same time if the Mercury is in the 8th house, it will again
destroy the properties, but here the reasons for destination will
be unknown and invisible, because the active elements of the 8th
house are always secretive and mysterious in nature over which
the native has no control.
Similarly, if the planets of the 1st and 11th
houses destination are friendly, they will control the planets of
the 7th house. If they are inimical, the results would be
The planets of the 1st house aspect the planets of
the 7th house. If they are mutually inimical, then the bad
results accrue because of the foolishness or unworthiness of the
native. The planets of the 8th house aspect the planets of the
2nd house and thereby affect their results.
8. 2nd, 6th, 8th, 12th and 11th houses must also be
examined simultaneously as follows :
(a) The planets of the 8th house aspect the 2nd
house and thereby affect the results of the 2nd house. The
effects of the aspects of the planets of the 8th house over the
2nd house are affected by the planets of the 11th house -
favourably if friendly and unfavourably if inimical.
(b) The planets of the 2nd house aspect the 6th
house and affects its results. The planets of the 6th and 8th
houses have secret relations with each other, because of which
they also affect the planets of the 2nd house (+++).
(c) The 12th house also affects the 2nd house
(+++). If there are evil planets in the 6th and 8th houses,
(because of their secret/implied conjunction) their evil power
increases 10 times.
(d) If the planets in the 12th and 8th houses are
inimical, the native should not visit temples and other places of
9. The 3rd, 11th, 5th, 9th and 10th houses must
also be examined simultaneously as follows :
(a) If there is any planet in the 3rd house, it
will start showing effects after the birth of the native's
younger brother. If the 9th and 5th houses are occupied by Saturn
Rahu or Ketu then the unfavourable changes start coming up in the
native's life just after the birth of the child.
(b) If there are good planets in the 9th house and
there is no planet in the 2nd house, the native remains deprived
of all the benefits.
(c) If there is no planet in the 4th house, or it
is occupied by Rahu, Ketu or Saturn, then the good results of the
10th house will not be received by the native. If 10th and 2nd
houses are empty, the good results of the 4th house will go
(d) If the 3rd and 9th houses are bad, the 5th will
also prove bad.
(e) If the 9th is occupied by Sun or Moon, the 5th
house will give good results.
(f) If the 9th is occupied by Sun or Moon, then
Rahu or Ketu in the 5th will neither affect the issues of the
native or the native himself adversely.
(g) If Rahu or Ketu be placed in the 5th and there
are inimical planets in the 8th then strokes of misfortune will
hit the native through the 11th house. The relatives indicated by
the planets of the 5th and 8th houses will also be affected. In
this situation the earnings of the native will also be affected
very adversely, if the 2nd house is empty. Nothing will be able
to save the native. Now the planets of the 10th and 5th will also
turn to be malefic whatever be their natural character.
