Logic behind Lal Kitab Upay or Remedies - Venus in 6th house
Lal Kitab has gained immense popularity nowadays. Each and every remedy prescribed in Lal Kitab has some logic behind it and remedies should not be prescribed without thoroughly analyzing the horoscope and understanding the problem faced by the client.
There are many learned lal kitab astrologers who are prescribing one or the other remedy of Lal Kitab on the basis of placement of a planet only without understanding the nature of problem faced by a person. Apart from it the popularity of system generated horoscopes and software generated remedies has become popular that has defeated the whole purpose of analyzing a horoscope, correcting it and diagnosing the problem thoroughly faced by a person before prescribing right remedies.
In my opinion, first of all the logic of a remedy and its ability to solve a particular problem should be kept in mind before advising such remedy to the client. For example, Lal Kitab suggests a specific remedy for Venus in 6th house. This remedy says that "The wife of a person with Venus in 6th should not move around barefoot. She should stay in socks or shoes most of the time." Now let us explore the logic of this remedy.
When Venus is placed in 6th house and it is not getting any help from its friends in this house, it is likely to affect progeny. Venus in 6th house is considered as debilitated because as per Kal Purush horoscope, 6th sign denotes Virgo where Venus is considered to be debilitated. For analyzing the logic of this remedy, you should know the concept of artificial planets in Lal Kitab. Venus is formed as a result of combination of Rahu and Ketu. When Venus is placed in 6th house, the Ketu component of Venus suffers because Ketu is considered as Manda or giving less benefic effects in 6th house. That is why progeny is affected. If such is the case, then it is suggested to the client that his wife should not move around barefoot. She should stay in socks or shoes most of the time. If the wife of a person moves around barefoot, the skin of her bare soles that is Venus comes in contact with thin dust that is also Venus. This reinforced debilitated Venus and affects its Ketu part more adversely. When the wife of such person start wearing socks or shoes then it will not allow her bare skin to touch the ground and debilitated Venus will not get reinforced further. In addition, bare skin that is Venus with socks or shoes which is Saturn results in formation of exalted Ketu because Saturn and Venus when joins together there is formation of exalted Ketu. This will not only minimize the bad impact of Ketu but rather would result in getting the help of Saturn to form artificial Ketu saving progeny and ensuring its welfare.
Thus each and every remedy of Lal Kitab has a scientific logic behind it and understanding the remedy and purpose of doing the remedy is going to help you in suggesting right remedy to the person concerned.
Steel joint-less ring (Steel ka bejod challa) in Lal Kitab Concept and clarifications - Mercury in 12th house
If Mercury is placed in 12th house or there is Mercury Rahu combination in the horoscope or if both Mercury and Rahu are giving manda (adverse) effect in separate houses in a horoscope, it is recommended that the person should wear a joint-less ring of Steel in his hand. In this post I am explaining the logic behind this lal kitab remedy as many people have sent mails asking logic of this remedy and proper method of doing this remedy.
Steel metal represents Saturn and round circle of ring denote Mercury. Thus we are giving support of Saturn to Mercury which will be crucial in removing the negative impact of planet Mercury. Steel Joint-less ring (steel bejod challa) is Mercury and Saturn together. Mercury in 12th house is considered as poisonous and to such extent that it can destroy planets sitting in 6th house through its aspect. That is why we are mixing intelligence (Mercury) with cleverness (Saturn) through this ring.
The ring has to be prepared without any joint that means it should not have open ends and joint of any other metal should also not exist. This ring is usually made by a molding process. It is to be noted that this steel ring should be prepared with good iron so that it do not get rust. Rust may result in addition of planet Rahu in this combination which will give adverse results. If the iron quality is good, then it will luster more as you start wearing it. It will help you in awaking your sleeping fortune. However it should not be taken as free as gift from anyone and apart from this you have to keep in mind the precautions suggested by Lal Kitab for this purpose. One of the precautions is that the person should not take alcohol because it would then spoil the good results of Saturn combination with Mercury. Secondly it should be kept rust free so that element of Rahu is not added in this combination. This ring can be worn in little finger of your right hand.
Exploring mysteries of Lal Kitab -Why Saturn position should be carefully analyzed before buying or constructing house
Everyone dreams about a house of his own where he can dwell in peace and happiness with his family. Saturn is the planet that should be seen before buying or constructing a house as Lal Kitab says when a house is built, Saturn is activated in the chart. As constructing or buying a house is an expensive project, you should look into the position of Saturn in your horoscope so you are your investment do not get wasted. If Saturn is good, then it will add to your property and money balance as the house is constructed or purchased. But if Saturn is bad in your horoscope, construction of buying house may result in financial losses and loss of mental peace for you. Please note that whether you build a house or purchase an already built house, Saturn is activated in your horoscope. Lal Kitab was written in 1939-1952 period when the practice of buying already built houses was not much prevalent. So Pandit Ji has dealt with the issues relating to construction of house in the Lal Kitab showing impact of Saturn on construction of such houses. Nowadays apart from constructing house, people also go for purchase of already build flats or houses. Many people have confusion in this regard as to how to judge the impact of Saturn in their horoscope.
In this post, I have dealt with the impact of Saturn in all the 12 houses of horoscope for buying or constructing a house. I would advise that before buying a house or starting construction on it, the native should consult a good Lal Kitab astrologer so that relevant remedies and precautions could be advised to him. Please note that Saturn will show effect on every individual between 3 to 18 years from the day when foundation of house is laid definitely which may be positive or negative depending on the position of Saturn in the horoscope.
As this topic is very broad, I would restrict myself to dealing very important points relating to position of Saturn in each house of the birth horoscope so that this post can be kept short and every person reading this post can understand the impact of Saturn on his or her horoscope depending on its position.
Saturn in First house - If Saturn is in first house and native constructs house it may affect his or her financial position. This will be true especially when Saturn is not in a good position in this house. On the other hand, if house number 7 and 10 are vacant and Saturn is in a good position, then it will give good results. The native is advised not to construct house before the age of 48 years.
Saturn in Second house - If Saturn is in second house, then as and when house construction of purchase becomes possible go for it. It will always be beneficial. When house is constructed it will make the results of Saturn better and financial position of native will also improve.
Saturn in Third house -In this case, it is advised to construct house after 48 years only. But still if you want to build house you should have 3 dogs and take good care of them otherwise constructing house before 48 years would result in poverty.
Saturn in Fourth house - If Saturn is in 4th house, person is own constructed houses before 48 years would affect native mother, grandmother, mother in law and maternal uncles. As soon as the foundation is laid, these relatives would be adversely affected.
Saturn in Fifth house - If the native construct the house by his or her own money, it will have an adverse impact on children. However the children of native can build houses which can prove to be very auspicious. If still the native wants to build house, then donation of a male buffalo before laying foundation of house is advised. It would be still better if such native construct house after 48 years of age.
Saturn in Sixth house - If Saturn is in sixth house then construction of house after 39 years of age would give very good results. If such native constructs house before 39 years of age, then in-laws of native daughters would face bad results.
Saturn in Seventh house - Such native can build house any time. Such native gets the opportunity to get already built houses many times which give good results. If in any case, there is loss or sale of houses then he should maintain threshold known as Dahleej of his oldest house and it will help him recovering from losses.
Saturn in Eighth house - It gives malefic results to the native with regard to construction of house. When construction is started, it is said that death bells start ringing. The position of Saturn in such cases needs to be judged by position of Rahu Ketu in the horoscope. Saturn will give result as per the position of Rahu Ketu. Such native should not built house before 48 years of age in any case.
Saturn in Ninth house - House can be constructed anytime but do not keep more than three houses in own name. If wife is pregnant, do not build house at that time. It will invite death or death like troubles for the native.
Saturn in Tenth house -Unless and until the native do not construct or purchase house till that time Saturn will continue to give money and wealth to the native. As soon as house is constructed, then Saturn will start giving adverse results and it will have an adverse impact on native is wealth and money. However you can build house by taking money from your father younger brother (Chacha). It will reduce malefic effect to a great extent. If Saturn is good in this house, then native gain from his Chacha and his (Chacha) financial condition is very good.
Saturn in Eleventh house - If Saturn is in 11th house, house is usually constructed late after the age of 55 years. Living in South facing house would lead native to be bed ridden for a long time. It is said that native will have to die in pain. So the native is advised to construct house after 55 years only.
Saturn in Twelfth house - If Saturn is in 12th house, then Snake (Saturn) and Monkey (Sun), who never makes their house, will now learn to make it. It means that houses will now automatically start building, which will be auspicious, even if Sun is placed with Saturn in 12th house. Native should not stop the construction of house if it is started and continue the construction in any way.
I have discussed the results of Saturn in twelve houses of horoscope with reference to construction & purchase of houses. House Number 2 of horoscope shows the situation of houses and House Number 7 will show happiness and suffering as a result of constructing houses. Whenever you are putting foundation of your house, you should do remedy of Moon and analyze its position in horoscope also. Moon rules the area in the foundation of house. The position of other planets in the birth horoscope and annual horoscope (varshphal) needs to be seen.

Sleeping House (Soye Ghar) and Sleeping Planet (Soye Grah) concepts in Lal Kitab and their relevance in predictions and remedies
Pandit Roop Chand Joshi Ji in Lal Kitab 1952 (page 96) while dealing with the concept of Sleeping house and Sleeping planet had written, "By Sleeping planet and Sleeping house the meaning is that such planet or house would not give its good results inspite of having everything with it." There is much confusion among practitioners and students of Lal Kitab about this concept. In this post, I have shared some of the important observations of this concept which would be very useful for every lal kitab practitioner and students to analyze the impact of planet and houses in a horoscope. This concept is very important because sometimes predictions are done on the basis of placement of planet without analyzing whether the planet is in an awakened state or not or without analyzing whether a house is sleeping or an active one.
At the outset I would like to clarify that sleeping house and sleeping planet are two entirely different concepts. I would deal with both these concepts one by one reflecting their importance in predictions and prescription of Lal kitab remedies.
Sleeping House (Dormant house/Soye Ghar)
A house which does not have a planet placed in it and consequently does not get an aspect of any planet either is considered as a Sleeping or Dormant house. It implies that no benefit will be received through the subjects of that house unless that house wakes up. The method of activating twelve houses of horoscope through different planets is given in following table:
|Sleeping House Number||Which planet would activate it|
Sleeping planet (Dormant planet/Soya Grah)
If a planet is placed in such a way in the horoscope that it does not aspect another planet, then it would be considered as sleeping planet/dormant planet/soya hua grah.
It is important to point out here that Lal Kitab 1952 (page 97) clearly states that if a planet is placed in its permanent house (example, Venus in 7th house, Mars in 3rd house) will always be considered as Awakened/Activated planet.
Khana/House Numbers 1 to 6 from Ascendant in horoscope are considered as previous houses and Khana/House Numbers 7 to 12 from Ascendant in the horoscope are considered as later houses. If there is no planet in 1to 6th house, then planet in later houses would be considered as sleeping while if the later houses are vacant, then previous houses would be considered as sleeping.
Lal Kitab 1952 (page 98) also prescribe three important scenarios with regard to sleeping planet which should be considered while predicting results for a horoscope. These are:
If there is no planet in House number10, then house number 2 planets would be treated as sleeping.
If there is no planet in House number2, then house number 10 planets would be treated as sleeping.
If there is no planet in House number 2, then house number 9 planets would be treated as sleeping.
Now the question arises what would be the impact of a sleeping planet. The answer is that if a planet is sleeping, its result would be confined to the house in which it is sitting. It would not be able to transfer its impact on later houses although the house in which it is sitting will be an awakened house.
If previous houses (1-6) do not have any planet as discussed above, then later houses (7-12) would be deemed as sleeping. In this case, planet that will activate ?Kismat ka Grah? need to be founded and if later houses (7-12) are vacant, then remedy for making respective planet active for a vacant house need to be undertaken.
If a planet is awakened automatically and start giving its results, then it will give its bad results after the end of its period as per following table. In such cases, the awakened planet would also adversely affect the results of all planets, whether they are friends or enemies of such planet.
When sleeping planet would be activated automatically & its malefic impact
|Planet||When will wake up||In what age period||When will give malefic (manda) results|
|Jupiter||When native does job||16-21 years||22nd year|
|Sun||When native does government job||22 years||24th year|
|Moon||When native starts education again||After 24 years||25th year|
|Venus||Marriage||After 25 years||28th year|
|Mars||If relationship is established with a women||After 28 years||34th year|
|Mercury||When native does business or marriage of sister or daughter||After 34 years||36th year|
|Saturn||If a person makes his own house||After 36 years||42nd year|
|Rahu||When relationship with in-laws is established||After 42 years||48th year|
|Ketu||After birth of child||After 48 years||51st year|
I have discussed the position of sleeping planet and sleeping house and hope it would help in clarifying this important concept.
Saturn its aspect on different houses of horoscope as per Lal Kitab
Lal Kitab has its own unique system of analyzing the impact of Saturn in different houses of the horoscope. If Saturn is sitting in permanent house of Jupiter (2,5,9,12) it will not give bad impact. Lal Kitab says that Saturn would write the decision relating to a native on a paper which signifies Mercury after hearing the arguments of Rahu and Ketu. Rahu is treated as prosecution witness and Ketu is treated as defence council. Saturn is the Judge who gives the final decision after hearing both sides on judicial basis.
In this post, I am highlighting an important aspect of analyzing the impact of placement of Saturn through its aspect on different houses of the horoscope. Saturn is regarded as vision power of eye or power of seeing in Lal Kitab and its aspect in Lal kitab is different from Vedic astrology aspects. In Vedic astrology, Saturn is given aspect of (3, 7, and 10) but in Lal Kitab aspects are different. In this post, I am discussing the aspects of Saturn on different houses and its impact in brief as per principles laid down in 1952 edition of Lal Kitab.
Saturn will have an aspect on different houses in the horoscope as discussed hereunder:
If Saturn is placed in Khana Number/House Number 1, then it will see planet in House Number 7 and relatives associated with this house with one eye.
If Saturn is placed in House Number 2, then it will see planet in House Number (8 and 12) and relatives associated with this house with two eyes.
If Saturn is placed in House Number 3, then it will see planet in House Number (5,9,11) and relatives associated with this house with three eyes.
If Saturn is placed in House Number 4, then it will see planet in House Number (2,8,10,11) and relatives associated with this house with four eyes.
Whenever Saturn is placed in House Number 5, it will be blind snake but if House Number 10 is vacant or House Number 10 has Jupiter or Ketu in it, then it will not have an adverse impact on children. Please keep in mind that Saturn in 5th house is treated as a "children eating snake" implying its negative impact on progeny for native. However if there is a planet in 9th house and a child takes birth on the day of planet sitting in 9th house, then it will not have an adverse impact on such child. For example, if Mars is sitting in 9th house and Saturn is in 5th house. In such case, if a child is born on a Tuesday which is a day of Mars, then Saturn will not negatively affect such child.
In Sixth house, Saturn is considered as a blind snake who is not able to see in night especially when House number 2 is vacant. When Saturn sits in 6th house, then as per Lal Kitab it has an aspect on 2nd house and even when a friend of Saturn is sitting in such house, it can have a poisonous bite on such planet. For Saturn 6th house native it is advised that whatever work he or she will do in night, it will prove to be useful as Saturn manda impact would not be present in such case. A unique aspect of Saturn in 6th house is discussed in Lal Kitab. It says that Saturn 6th house native would prove to be useful for his or her parents in time of need especially when Rahu is in 3rd or 6th house.
Saturn in 7th house is treated as capable of throwing dust in eyes of air especially when it is established (kayam) in horoscope.
In 8th house, Saturn is treated as having an oppressive eye of death especially when house number 3 have malefic planets or it is vacant
In 9th house Saturn is treated as an eye which has the power to create greenery in burnt out place also especially when friendly planets of Saturn are in 2nd house.
In 10th house, Saturn has an eye which can see all the four sides and it looks at 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th house planet and relatives associated with it.
In 11th house, Saturn is the eye of an innocent child especially when House number 3 contains Rahu or Ketu or House Number 1 has friendly planets to Saturn.
In 12th house, Saturn has the power of changing the fortune of native through its eye and it can give inhabitation & population to place where there is no presence of people especially when house number 2 has friendly planets to Saturn or Mars and Venus are established.
NI have discussed the impact of aspect of Saturn on different planets, houses and relatives associated with them in brief. These are the very special points that need to be kept in mind while predicting about a horoscope or prescribing remedies. In the future posts, I would share some more principles of Lal Kitab which will improve your predictive abilities.
Now coming to the remedies for Saturn, it is necessary to first of all carefully analyze the position of Saturn, Rahu and Ketu in the horoscope. Please keep in mind that Saturn does not give malefic results through it, rather it gives its malefic results through its agent Rahu and Ketu. So analyzing their position is very crucial before predicting Saturn results. If Saturn has become manda in the horoscope then it will give effect of Rahu and Ketu also if they are sitting to the right or left of Saturn. There are many astrologers who do not have sound knowledge of Lal Kitab and they ask people to donate Saturn related articles or sometimes ask them to bury Saturn articles in deserted place or in a grass land. I would advise you to be careful while doing these remedies as they may result in loss to you also. This is the reason I am not suggesting any general remedy in this post because it may prove detrimental to you.
Special precautions for Native with Venus in 7th house in Lal Kitab Partnership with in laws would result in financial losses and destruction of marital life
Today every person wants to attain success, prestige and monetary gains. Many times a person starts business in partnership with relatives, friends, in laws etc. I would suggest all of you to book a specific Lal Kitab consultation with an expert in Lal Kitab Astrology before entering into partnership with anyone for starting a new business or expanding an existing one. The reason for this is that a good Lal Kitab astrologer depending on the position of planets in your horoscope may suggest some precautions that need to be kept in mind before choosing a new business or before collaborating with someone for this purpose. It is sensible also to book a specific consultation before entering into partnership because you are putting your hard earned money at stake and right advice at the right time can save you from lot of troubles in the future.
In this post I am dealing with a specific precaution for a native with Venus in Seventh house. Venus in Seventh house is considered to be giving very good results as it is its own permanent house in Lal Kitab. Lal Kitab 1952 edition deals with a specific precaution for a native with Venus in Seventh house. The precaution is that a native whose Venus is in Seventh house does business in partnership with his in laws whether it is his father in law, brother in law or any other relative from the side of his wife would be detrimental for financial condition of the native and it will also ruin the marital life of such native.I have seen in many horoscopes that where a native with Venus in Seventh house with an intention to work with own persons enters into partnership with in laws it results in problems. These problems may depend on the planetary combination like it may result in tax related issues, permission related problems, workers related problems etc. Subsequently it starts affecting marital life of native also. Therefore, a native with Venus in Seventh house is advised not to enter partnership with in laws and if in any case such partnership has already been entered, he is advised to terminate such partnerships. This precaution would help the native in maintaining good relations with his in laws and it will be good for the financial position of native also.
Astrological Significance of Tying Kalawa or Mauli (WHY WE TIE MAULI IN HAND)
Many people wear mauli but they do not know the real significance of putting mauli. In this post, I am discussing the true significance of tying mauli in hand. I am not just discussing the astrological significance of wearing Mauli but I would also discuss its scientific and religious significance also.
The literal meaning of Mauli in Sanskrit is ‘crown’, which means “above all”. It is a cotton thread which is spun in a yarn. In Hindu culture, Mauli or Kalawa is tied on the hand in almost all puja and cultural occasions. It is a Red & Yellow colored thread, which is usually tied in hands of man and woman both. It is known as ‘kalawa’ also as it is tied on wrist (kalai). Before doing anything important like starting business, construction of house etc people used to do yagna (puja) where a "mauli" was used to be tied and resolutions were used to be taken at time of tying the knot. Thus tying mauli or kalawa is an important tradition which signifies that someone is doing an Anushthan, Puja or any mangalik work. The person who is doing any auspicious rites and rituals ties it to the person who is getting it done and vice versa.
Scientific Significance – I would start my discussion about importance of tying mauli by discovering scientific logic behind it. According to Human Anatomy, our wrist is covered with a web of veins. Our body has 72,000 veins. Almost all the prime veins pass from the wrist only. In Ayurveda, there is a theory called as the ‘Tridosha Theory’. According to this theory, our body consists of three dosha (Faults) namely Vaat (Wind), Pitt (Bile) and Kapha (Phlegm). Vata or vayu, the impulse principle is necessary to mobilize the function of the nervous system. Pitt or bile is useful in digestion and supply of blood and energy to various parts of the body. Kapha or phlegm is the carrier of nutrients into the arterial system. So, tying three knots, the kalava creates enough pressure on these naadis, each to keep your body free of any disease related to these three constituents. When Mauli is tied around the wrist it activates the nerves center and helps in improving the blood circulation which balances the Tridoshas. It also helps in keeping the negative energies away from our aura and acts like a protecting shield. As a result immunity of body increases. If we see it from the point of view of Acupressure also, it can be seen that when Mauli is put on wrist it regulates blood flow which in turn improves immunity.
Religious Significance – According to the ancient Hindu scriptures, it is said that Lord Vishnu incarnation Vamana tied the ‘Raksha (protection) Dhaga (Thread)’ on the wrist of King Bali to grant him with the boon of immortality. Since then, the ritual of tying Mauli has been practiced. The three rounds of Mauli denote Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh) with their consorts who bless the wearer with courage, knowledge, health and wealth. It is also believed that mauli helps the wearer in getting protection from evil eye and negative energies.
Astrological Significance – By wearing Mauli on the hand, an individual is able to improve blood circulation leading to improvement in his or her health. Blood in our body is seen by Planet Mars but as blood has liquid component of water in it, it also includes Planet Moon along with it. When an individual wear Mauli, it improves both Mars and Moon in the horoscope. Mars is the planet of courage and through putting mauli, an individual is encouraged to fulfill his or her resolution or deep desire. In a way, Mauli acts as a reminder to the individual that he or she needs to fulfill his or her resolution. Thus apart from improving planets of the individual, it also leads to improvement in an individual psyche also. Finally, with improvement in blood circulation, planet Sun is also improved as Sun is associated with pressure of the blood.
Correct way of putting Mauli – There are different practices that are being followed in Hindu traditions. Mauli should be worn by males on the right hand while it is worn by females on the left hand. While putting mauli, your fist should be tight and the other hand should be on your head.
Exploring mysteries of Lal Kitab - Precaution for native with Mercury in 5th house (Voice of a saint/fakir)
There are many systems of astrology but Lal Kitab is unique among them as it works on the principle of doing good deeds for the welfare of society. This result in improvement in planets associated with our actions. Pandit Roop Chand Joshi Ji has written in Lal Kitab, "Kar bhala hoga bhala, aakhir bhale ka bhala". It implies that if you do good works, you will receive favors from nature and a good person has good result of his good deeds. It is the law of nature that if you do good works, they will return back to you in the form of goodness and if you do evil deeds, they will also come back to you in the form of evil.
On the same premise, today I would discuss results of Mercury in 5th house which is termed as "Faqir ki Awaaj" (voice of a saint) in Lal Kitab. Whenever Mercury is sitting in 5th house, a specific precaution is given to the native. Lal Kitab says that if a person with Mercury in 5th house spontaneously gives a blessing to other person, it is highly possible that such blessing will prove true. Similarly if such native curses other person in a spontaneous moment suddenly, the possibility of such curse becoming true is also high. It is important to point out here that Lal kitab says that tongue (jubaan) creates a difference between a human (insaan) and a brute (haivaan). So if Mercury 5th native speaks something bad for another person in a fit of rage or moment of anger spontaneously, it can prove to be disastrous not only for other person but such curse will also adversely affect the native also. So to bless others and wishing good luck for others would give the native with Mercury in 5th house good results while saying harsh words or cursing others would damage others as well as the native also. So such person is advised to bless others so that others can prosper and at the same time he will also receive good results.
So, check your horoscope to see whether your Mercury is in 5th house and if it is in the 5th house, then ensure that you bless others for their prosperity and you will also continue to prosper.
