Astrology is the study of the influence that distant cosmic objects, usually stars and planets, have on human lives. The position of the sun, stars, moon and planets at the time of people’s birth (not their conception) is said to shape their personality, affect their romantic relationships and predict their economic fortunes, among other divinations.
What most people know about astrology is their “sign,” which refers to one of the 12 constellations of the zodiac. This is a form of sun-sign astrology, which is the astrology upon which newspaper horoscopes are based. It is probably the simplest form, because nothing more than the date of someone’s birthday is needed to generate a sun-sign horoscope. Many astrologers will tell you that this form of astrology is so simplistic that it produces very limited results.
To produce a more accurate reading, astrologers check to see what sign each planet was in at the time of birth. The planets and signs combine with other elements, such as houses and angles, to form a complex and often very specific profile of a subject’s personality, life and future prospects.
There is no single unified theory or practice of astrology. Ancient cultures all practiced their own forms, some of which combined and evolved into today’s common western astrology. Eastern cultures continue to practice their own forms of astrology: Chinese, Vedic and Tibetan astrology are among the most well-known.
What is lal Kitab
Lal Kitab is a remarkable branch of Vedic astrology. Collection of the 5 books, written during the period of 1939-1952 is called Lal Kitab. Written in ancient Urdu language, first time in the history of astrology, Lal Kitab introduced a new style of horoscope analysis with quick and affordable remedies (Lal Kitab Upay in Hindi). Authorship of the books seems to be disputed. However, finding by our research community shows that the books were written by Pt. Roop Chand Joshi.
Surprisingly to apprise that Lal Kitab throws sufficient light over vivid dimensions of human life which were never discussed in classical astrology. Much younger than its classical counterpart, it covers the modern lifestyle and day to day events which were hard to find in classical astrology. It is important to note that palmistry, Vastu & phrenology are also part and parcel of the Lal Kitab. Wide coverage of topics put Lal Kitab in the class of ancient Hindu Samhitas like Brihat Samhita and Narad Samhita.
Lal Kitab remedies/ Upay are affordable, easy and provide quick results. The effect of remedies is unbelievable. It is said that these remedies/ upay are especially suitable for quick results in Kaliyuga as the traditional methods viz. mantra, yagna, japa, havana etc. have become very difficult in this period. The remedies/ upay are as easy in throwing something in running water or establishing something in home. However, beware that Lal Kitab remedies/ upay can also backfire, if not properly studied and performed. That is why one should be very cautious as and when you take shelter of Lal Kitab consultancy. It is advisable to stop performing remedies/ upay immediately if you observer any negative side effects.
As a matter of fact, it is very difficult and cumbersome to understand Lal Kitab due to its mysterious and talismatic language used by the author. Rationale behind the farmaans, the couplets of the Lal Kitab, and remedies/ upay thereof are also difficult to understand. However, years together involvement and encounter with this book, we are of the opinion that number of the astrologers who are having good command and sound knowledge in this field is negligible. Due to unavailability of authentic knowledge, people are being misguided by the crooks who want to take advantage of the prevailing confusing environment.
Last but not the least, Lal Kitab still not has been decoded in every sphere. There are so many topics and areas in Lal Kitab which are still undiscovered and lying in darkness. A research is being conduced by our institution to decode Lal Kitab as to provide its maximum benefit to the mankind. Kindly check the book resources section for more details, if you wish to learn it. If you are interested in getting help from our Lal Kitab expert panel, please go though the Lal Kitab consultancy section.

What is Kp System
This is an excellent system (Paddhati) of astrological predictions conceived and created by The Great Indian Astrology master late Prof. K.S. Krishnamurti. KP System is based on finer points of Indian and Western astrology and borrows important concepts from many branches of astrology. Regarded as most accurate system of present time, KP System of astrology is easy to learn and easy to apply. Contrary to classical Hindu astrology, KP system is systematic and very well defined.
Here are some major differences to Vedic astrology:
- KP system gives importance to the Constellations / Stars / Nakshatras divisions of the Zodiac which is obviously the most desired for precision.
- Further it divides each Constellation / Star / Nakshatra division into further 9 subdivisions called ‘SUBS’. These sub divisions are not equal divisions, but are as per the Vimshottari Dashas Divisions System.
- K.P. System uses K.P. Ayanamshas as opposed to Lahiri Ayanamshas mostly used in Vedic System. The difference between two is about 6 minutes (Kala).
- This system uses Cusps that is house/ bhav beginnings like Western Systems, as opposed to Vedic System which uses House Centres i.e. Bhav Madhyas.
- This system uses Placidus House system.
- The planet in its dasha gives results as per its Nakshtra-Swami (Star-Lord) rather than the planet itself.
- Hence Planet is represents the SOURCE, that Planet’s Star-Lord represents the EFFECTS, RESULTS and that Planet’s Sub gives idea of the FINAL DIRECTION of that result.
- KP highly uses Ruling Planets methodology which says that the planets at the time of desire and fructifications are always same.
- House characteristics are given more importance than planetary characteristics.
- KP system discards few of the popular classical astrology principles like divisional charts and yogas.
