The rules of Natal Astrology are difficult to learn because of the complexity of this branch of Predictive Astrology. It is because Natal Astrology has many problems which few astrologers can resolve :
- Dozens of dashaa systems pose a problem of selection of correct dasha system for a particular field ;
- DAC (dashaa aarambha chakra or dashaa onset chart) requires birthtime accuracy in milliseconds which was easy in bygone days due to garbhaadhaana samskaara chart and sootikaa griha details which no one preserves now ; dashaa-phala should be made through DAC and not through birthchart according to BPHS (Brihat Parashara Hora Shaastra) ;
- Role of various tools like kaarakaamsha, ashtakavarga, varshaphala, etc which modify the results of birthchart.
Therefore, Medini Jyotisha is the easiest approach to learn the fundamentals of Predictive Astrology , and once these fundamentals are learnt, they can be applied to Natal Astrology so that the aforementioned difficult fields of Natal Astrology can be dealt with greater confidence and reliability. Medini Jyotisha does not need dashaas, DAC, ashtakavarga, kaarakaamsha, etc, and is therefore far simpler than Natal Astrology. But Medini Jyotisha requires casting horoscope on map, and some easy rules for interpreting those charts on map which is out of use now. Influenced by Western Astrology, many Indian astrologers are also now making national chart of India from New Delhi and argue that India did not exist before 1947 as a nation. This political definition of India is correct but it is a definition of the political STATE of India, not of the Indian NATION which is essentially a cultural entity and not a political entity.
Those who want to solve these issues through mere discussions should not read my articles. Jyotisha is a practical science, and proof of the pudding lies in tasting it.
Now, I find there are some astrologers and learners online who are really interested in testing the ancient techniques of Medini Jyotisha. That is why I have decided to put online the forthcoming series of articles illustrating the technique of chart interpretation which will help in Natal Astrology (Jaatak) too. For such persons, from Version 6.8.9 onwards 97 years international rainfall data and 135 years Indian rainfall data arranged in Financial Year beginning from Apr-1 has been integrated into Kundalee Software so that the users of Kundalee could see the rainfall data on World's and India's maps together with astrological chart, so that comparison of rainfall data with astrological chart could be feasible. Drik (physical astronomy) mode will soon be activated in Kundalee, which will help the users of Drik to make comparative study of Drik versus SSS (Shri Surya Siddhaanta) with reference to the actual rainfall data.
I requested all internet astrologers since Dec 2008 when I joined internet astrological forums to test Drik vs SSS issue through comparative study, but no one was interested, hence I lost interest in adding these features into Kundalee Software. Now, I find there are some unbiased and sincere persons, and that is why these new features have been added to Kundalee Software, and that is why this new series of illustrative articles is being started.
