What is Lal Kitab?
Lal Kitab is basically a book of Astrology in which has given a different story of Vedic astrology in different ways. It is mainly made in the words of Urdu and not in the verses of Sanskrit. As per Vedic astrology, in Lal Kitab, each quote is considered as a permanent master planet and all the astrological calculations are based on that only. In this there is Aries zodiac sign in the first house, Taurus amount to the second house and similarly 12 quarters have been arranged and the result is calculated on the basis of exact location factor of each planet of each house. The characteristic of the Lal Kitab is that it has given such measures which are very easy in the form of sorcery and tricks and a normal person can get rid of these defects by doing these Lal Kitab remedies.
Features of Lal Kitab
Lal Kitab is a very easy book in relation to astrology by which a normal person can also examine his horoscope according to the circumstances around him, and can make the planets conducive with simple measures. The rules of Vedic astrology is completely different from the rules of Vedic astrology. For example, Lagna is given the highest regard in Vedic astrology and at the time of birth, the amount raised on the eastern horizon is written in Lagna Bhaaw. But in Lal Kitab, nothing happens like this. In it, the Bhaaw of kundali remains constant as Kaal Purush Kundali. For example, according to Vedic astrology if a person is born in Sagittarius Lagna, then his birth chart will be written in Sagittarius first which is Lagna Bhaaw aswell. But it will not be the same in the Lal Kitab. According to the Lal Kitab, First house or Lagna house will be written in Aries and in that sequence, Sagittarius will be marked in the ninth house. Apart from this, there is also a different opinion about the planets and the Lal Kitab horoscope which is also called teva. According to this, word like pakka ghar, a position of the sleeping planet (soya hua grah), the sleeping position of bhaaw or house (soya hua bhaaw ya ghar), companion planets or blind teva, religious teva and navalik teva are also used, which has highest importance according to Lal Kitab. Come let’s know about these words in detail.
In Vedic astrology, every house has their fixed nature but in Lal Kitab, you can’t find the same. Here, like the Kala-Purusha Kundali, Aries is located in the first house and in this way Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius and Pisces marks in the twelfth house. Now because the lord of Aries is the Mangal, then the pakka Ghar of Mars will be considered as the first house. The fourth house of the moon will be considered as a permanent home of the moon. Similarly, the ninth house Jupiter and tenth and eleventh house are considered to be the permanent home of Saturn.
Soya hua Grah (Sleeping position of Planet)
According to the Lal Kitab Horoscope, if a planet is not giving sight to any other planet, such a planet is called soya Hua grah or sleeping planet. But if a planet is its pakka ghar then that will not be considered as soya hua grah or in the sleeping position. It means that the effect of that planet will be considered limited to the house in which it is located, not beyond that. For example, if there is a position of Venus in the fourth house of kundali and the tenth house is remain empty, then in this condition Venus will be considered as soya Hua grah or sleeping planet. Because the seventh sight of Venus is on tenth house but there isn’t any planet’s position and the fourth house is not even a pakkar ghar of Venus as well. In this situation, the effect of Venus will be for the fourth house only and on that basis, it will show the results.
Soya Hua Ghar (Sleeping position of House)
If the house of a Lal Kitab Kundali does not have a planet and is empty and there is no sight of any other planet on it, then it will consider as sleeping position of a house or soya Hua ghar. It is believed that sleeping position of house doesn’t provide any effect related to itself until it can be awakened by following some remedies. Here are the different ways of awakening each house:
- Mars remedies should be followed to awaken the first house.
- Moon remedies should be followed to awaken the Second house.
- Mercury remedies should be used to awaken the third house.
- Moon remedies should be followed to awaken the fourth house.
- Sun remedies should be used to awaken the fifth house.
- Rahu remedies should be used to awaken the sixth house.
- Venus remedies should be followed to awaken the seventh house.
- Moon remedies should be used to awaken the eighth house.
- Jupiter remedies should be used to awaken the ninth house.
- Saturn remedies should be used to awaken the tenth house.
- Jupiter remedies should be followed to awaken the eleventh house.
- Ketu remedies should be followed to awaken the twelfth house.
Companion Planet (Sathi Grah)
In Lal Kitab, the concept of a companion planet has also been considered.
Companion planets are the planets that sit in one another’s fixed house position or in pakka ghar. Such planets do not have a bad effect on each other and therefore become companion planets and give a good effect. For example, Saturn is the fixed lord of eleventh house and Sun is of the fifth house. Even if the Sun is located in the eleventh house and Saturn is in the fifth house, even though according to Vedic astrology it is the enemy of each other, but according to the Lal Kitab it will be considered as the companionship of each other and will not affect each other’s house.
Blind Planet or Blind Teva (Ratandhra Grah or Andha Teva)
According to the Lal Kitab, the planets that are seen in the day and are blind in the night, which do not provide vision, such planets are called blinds planets and in which kundali such planets are located are known as Blind Teva. For example, if Saturn is in the seventh house and sun is in the fourth house, then such teva are known blind teva. If a person has a Blind Teva then it can affect his family life, professional life, marital life and badly affects the mental status.
The RighteousTeva or Dharmi Teva
If the sum of Saturn and Guru Jupiter is formed in the Kundali, then such a Kundali is known as the righteous Teva or Dharmi Teva. In such Kundali the effect of a person’s inauspicious planets has been reduced. According to the Lal Kitab Jupiter is the lord of ninth and tenth house and Saturn is the lord of twelfth and eleventh house. The companionship between these in Kundali vanishes all the problems and help one to get rid of their difficulties in life. If there is a collaboration between Saturn and Jupiter in Kundali’s sixth, ninth and eleventh house, it indicates the good effects in life.
Minor Teva or Nabalig Teva
According to the Lal Kitab, when the first, fourth, seventh and tenth house or center house remain blank of a Kundali and indicates that there is no planetary position in it, then such a teva called minor Teva or Nabalik Teva. Apart from this, if only sinner planets, such as Saturn, Rahu, Ketu or Solitary Mercury are located in these expressions, then such a teva is called minor Teva or Nabalik Teva. The impact of the planets in the minor Teva cannot be said completely for 12 years, because in such condition till 12 years of age, the person gets results only on the basis of past birth and after 12 years The statement is done. If there is a minor or nabalik Teva in anyone’s Kundali, then they have different effects of different planets till 12 years. You can understand these effects in following ways.
- The planet of seventh house effects the first year of birth.
- The planet of fourth house effects the second year of birth.
- The planet of ninth house effects the third year of birth.
- The planet of tenth house effects the fourth year of birth.
- The planet of eleventh house effects the fifth year of birth.
- The planet of third house effects the sixth year of birth.
- The planet of second house effects the seventh year of birth.
- The Planet of fifth house effects the eighth year of birth.
- The Planet of Sixth house effects the ninth year of birth.
- The planet of twelfth house effects the tenth year of birth.
